BEGOLE [From The Wolverine Citizen, Flint, March 17, 1883] DEPARTURE OF PIONEERS The sickle of death is fast gathering in the few remaining heroic pioneers who formed the little advance army of civilization that opened up the county of Genesee to the fruitful fields and pleasant homes which now surround us. It is the sad office of the Citizen to chronicle not less than four of them in this issue. Mr. Caleb S. Thompson—whose death the Citizen has already recorded as having taken place on the 19th of February, was born in Northbury, Massachusetts, on April 23, 1805, and died in his seventy-eighth year. When Caleb was five years old, his father moved to Oneida county, New York. In 1816 he again moved, and settled in Avon, New York. Here Caleb grew to manhood, and with such advantages as the common schools afforded, in conjunction with free access to a good private library, being a great student he stored his mind with much useful knowledge.
