Eaton County Michigan

EATON COUNTY MEMORIAL REPORT

By D. B. HALE
Eaton Rapids, June -13, 1883.

Greene, Corresponding Secretary: Dear Sir, —I send you enclosed such names of pioneers of Eaton county as I have been able to obtain. Some weeks since, I addressed letters to parties in different parts of the county, requesting a list of the pioneers who have died since June, 1882, in their various localities. Only two to whom I wrote have responded. I very much regret I could not have obtained a complete list of such as have endured the hardships of pioneer life, and prepared the way for the comforts and even luxuries guaranteed to the present generation. They are worthy-of having their names perpetuated as examples of energy and endurance which may well be honored. I regret that I am not permitted to meet with you on this occasion. I have been looking forward to this meeting with pleasant anticipations, but like all •of this world's promises, we are often doomed to disappointment. Whether I may be permitted to meet with those who shall gather for -another anniversary, I know not. How many who shall gather at Lansing on the 13th and 14th of June, 1883, will be gathered with those whose obituaries will be read on this occasion, is a solemn question which possibly may be answered on the occasion of the next anniversary of 1884. May you have a pleasant and profitable gathering; profitable in good cheer and pleasant experiences. Yours truly, D. B. Hale.
