AN OLD SETTLER GONE.
Oct 10, 1895 (hand written)
This morning at 7:25 o’clock, at his home, No. 1078 Star street, Butlerville, occurred the death of C. W. FISHER, an old and respected citizen of Muscatine, at the age of 66 years. He had been in failing health for the past several months, but it was not until about one week ago that he was compelled to take to his bed, where he remained until death relieved his sufferings.
Deceased was born in Lancaster, Penn., March 7, 1829, and came to this city in 1854, which had been his home since that date. During his residence here he followed his trade of tinner until his health began to fail and he was obliged to retire. He is survived by his sorrowing widow and twelve children; Mrs. John Hain, of Arlon, Iowa, Mrs. James Denham, residing near Letts; Mrs. Mary Lawrence, Mrs. C. C. Smith, Mrs. Denny Stapleton, Mrs. Link Harker, of this city; C. B., John A , Edwin, M. S., George, Charles and Harry, also living here.
The announcement of Mr. Fisher’s death will be received with regret by a large number of personal friends, by whom he was highly esteemed. The funeral services will be announced later.
