Glass, Lewis J. (20 Feb 1847 - 19 Feb 1898)
One by one death gathers its victims, claiming one, whom, when called hence, leaves aching hearts where once was a happy family. The news Saturday morning last of the death of Lewis J. Glass was startling to all. Mr. Glass had been ailing for some three weeks past, and Friday evening succumbed to the inevitable, the direct cause being neuralgia of the heart.
Deceased was born in Loenminster, Worcester County, Ma., Feb. 20, 1847. At the age of eleven years he settled in Washington County, Wis., where he remained until the year 1869, when he came to Neillsville, Clark County, his late home. Here he resided, and for many years held the office of municipal justice. He was a member of Chas. G. Bacon Post No. 48, G.A.R., having served in the late war in Co. H. 61st Ill. Vol., receiving an honorable discharge at the end of the services. He was also a member of Co. A. 3rd Inf., W.N.G., for twenty years, and at the time of his death was chief clerk of the same. During the Hoard and Rusk administration in Madison, Mr. Glass held the position of clerk in the adjutant general's office.
In business transactions Mr. Glass was very precise, his books being kept in perfect order, and as a citizen he was all that any community could wish. He leaves a wife, seven children and other relatives to mourn. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon under auspices of G.A.R. and W.N.G.
