REV. Baldwin M. FULMER
Baldwin M. Fulmer died near Webb Lake on Saturday morning, May 21st, 1910, at half past six o'clock at the age of seventy-six years and sixteen days of diabetes.
He was born in Bertle, Canada, on May 6th, 1834 and left there with his parents in the fall of 1845 and came to the state of Illinois, and remained the winter near Chicago. In 1846 they moved to Dodge County in this state. He attended school there for eight years, after which he attended the Lawrence University at Appleton for three years and shortly after joined the Methodist conference and entered the ministry and was married to Miss Maria Graves at Iron Ridge in this state. He held services in a number of different places in this state and came to Clark County in 1876 and taught a term of school in this village and three years later purchased the Philpott farm one and one half miles northwest of here. He moved to Loyal nine years ago and for a time was editor of this paper. Six years ago he moved to near Webb Lake, where he died.
He enlisted in the army in 1864 and served to the end of the war. He was assemblyman of this district in 1893 and 1894.
He had borne adversity bravely and enjoyed prosperity quietly. He had filled the various relations of life as son, husband, father, brother, friend and filled them well. Who can do more?
The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church last Thursday and the remains buried by the side of his wife, who died about seven years ago. (Loyal Tribune)
