ALBERT T. CHAUDOIN
Oct. 2, 1894 (hand written)
Albert T. Chaudoin, carpenter and contractor, passed away yesterday forenoon at 10:10 o’clock at his home on Iowa Avenue extension, after a lingering illness. Mr. Chaudoin was seized with a severe attack of the grip several years ago from which he never fully recovered. That insidious disease consumption eventually developed and since last January the deceased was compelled to abandon active pursuits. Though it was apparent to family and friends that the end was inevitable, the patient was in such good spirits that they did not realize that the final summons would come so soon and suddenly.
Mr. Chaudoin was born and raised in this county and attained the age of 42 years, 11 months and 8 days. With the exception of a few years in West Liberty he had always made his home in our midst, following his vocation as an expert builder as long as health and strength permitted. In 1873 he was married to Miss Kate I. Kinsley, from which union two children were born, Arthur and Albert. In 1883 his wife passed over the silent river and in 1886 he was again married to Miss Mary Tirney. From this union four children were born, two of whom, Lelia and Frank, survive. He is also survived by an aged mother and three brothers, Louis T. Chaudoin, of this city, Emory, of Missouri, and Edward B., of Fairbank, Iowa.
Mr. Chaudoin was industrious and upright, a good citizen, neighbor and friend, true in every relation of life, and his untimely death will be regretted by all who knew and esteemed him.
The funeral is appointed to occur from the residence, 1001 Iowa avenue extension, at 2 o’clock Thursday afternoon. Rev. S.H. Parvin will conduct the services.
