Eaton County Michigan

EATON COUNTY MEMORIAL REPORT

It is often so in the newer portions of our country. Men have neither time or inclination to devote to the finer polish of the modern schools. But it is of just such material that the best communities and churches are composed. It affords me great pleasure to commend the life of Brother Freeman to the young men of this city as one worthy of imitation. He has been a true man, and I trust his sons will honor his memory by devoting themselves to the service of the Master, whom the father loved and served so faithfully for more than half a century. May the blessings of God rest upon every member of this bereaved family, and may his place in this mourning church in which he has been a faithful worker since its first organization, be more than made good by these young men who are to take his place. He is infinitely happy. If anything could add to his joy it would be, I think, to see his dear surviving children, and all the youths of this community, leading earnest and devoted Godly lives. Mrs. Ward Gazlay—died at the family residence on Thursday night, after an illness of less than three days. Mrs. Gazlay had resided in Flint with her husband about forty years, and has been highly esteemed by all who knew her; and her sudden death was a great shock to her old neighbors and friends as well as to her family. Besides her husband she leaves two sons and four daughters, and several grandchildren. Her funeral occurred at two p. m. Sunday, Rev. H. M. Curtis, pastor of the Presbyterian church, assisted by Rev. W. H. Shier, officiating. The following notice of John Baker, who died Jan. 3, was overlooked and not published at the time it was written by Rev. Mr. Shier. John Baker—was born in Devonshire, England, in the year 1821 died Jan. 3, 1883, and was therefore over sixty-one years of age at time of death.
