A Resident of Decorah in Early Times, Dies at Shawnee, Pa.
A letter came to this office last Friday bringing intelligence of the death of Mr. Clarence Tupper, on the 25th, ult., at Shawnee, Pa. Mr. Tupper was the youngest son of Mr. Seneca A. Tupper, who was a pioneer attorney and active public citizen the latter part of the fifties, and during the war of the rebellion. The son was a companion in school and playmate of A. S. Bailey, E. J. Riley, Nate Phelps and others, now past the 50th mile stone. In early manhood Mr. Tupper went to Chicago and secured a place in the wholesale house now known as Marshall Feld & Co.ís. His efficiency was such that he rose rapidly to the head of a department, and even after ill health compelled his withdrawal, the position was held as open to him should he be able at any time to return to it. His home, for many years, had been at Shawnee. Pa., with his sister, Mrs. Lizzie Tupper, wife of Capt. Charles C. Tupper, of the 12th Iowa, and of most fragrant patriotic memory. He was a victim of bronchitis and for many years endured with Christian patience the suffering that disease entailed.
Transcriberís Note: Find a Grave shows he was born July 2, 1847 and is buried in Shawnee Presbyterian Cemetery in Shawnee, PA.
