Breed, Jared P. (1813 - 1873)

Died in Neillsville, Clark County, on Friday, Feb. 6, 1873, Jared P. Breed, aged 60 years.

The deceased has been a resident of this village for nearly two years. He was a native of New Hampshire, but in early live removed to Sehroon , N.Y. From this place he removed to Michigan, living successively at Plymouth, Saginaw City, and South Haven. From the latter place he removed to Clark County, in April 1871. In the month of August following he was afflicted with a severe shock paralysis, from which he never fully recovered, and which reappeared several time since, though in lighter shocks, until he became quite enfeebled. Nearly two weeks before his death, while cutting wood, he inflicted a severe wound on one foot, which, under careful treatment, seemed to be healing rapidly, but induced a return of the old malady. There seemed no hope for his recovery then and his course soon run. He bore his sufferings with remarkable patience. His awakening to consciousness was to recognize his brother Leonard the day before his death. He was years a member of the Methodist church, which fellowship he honored with a consistent, upright life. Thus has passed away a kind husband and father, an honorable citizen, and worthy Christian man. When over the river, the mystic boatman shall bear the surviving bereaved ones, may there be a happy reunion.
