Marshall, J. H. (1833 - 1875)

Died, at his residence in this village (Neillsville, Clark County), June 12th, 1875, Mr. J. H. Marshall, aged 41 years, 6 months and 16 days.

John Hadley Marshall was born in Onondago County, N.Y., Nov. 27th, 1833. At the age of nineteen, enamored with the accounts he had heard of the great west, he turned his face towards the setting sun and located in the state of Illinois. During the greater part of the time he was a resident of the latter state he was engaged in the mercantile business. In 1856 he was married to Miss Helen C. Brown, of Woodstock, soon after which, with his young wife, he became a resident of this state, settling at Black River Falls about the time the war broke out, where he was engaged in the general transportation business for seven years, transporting freight between that place and Sparta, then the nearest railroad point to the former place. After the building of the West Wisconsin Railway, he came to this place to engage in the hardware trade, which he conducted successfully for over six years, and up to the time of his death.

The painful circumstances connected with his death (an account of which we published last week) renders this occurrence one of unusual sadness, calling for universal sympathy and regret. Though anticipated by some from the hour of his injuries were received, his death was nevertheless sudden, and it is hard to realize that he has really gone out from us to return no more forever that he with whom we have so oft and so recently exchanged the friendly greeting, and from whom we were accustomed to hear that familiar salutation, which was ever given with a hearty good will whether in sunshine or in storm, A fine day, Charley, exists only in the memory of loved ones and those by whom, he was known.

His funeral last Sunday, which was conducted by the Odd Fellows, was largely attended by his sorrowing neighbors and friends from other places, who manifested their respect for the dead and sympathy for the living in administering the last sad rites that friendship can pay to the departed.
