  • Note:

    William Sample, one of the oldest settlers of Lexington township, died at the home of his son Gilbert in that township on Monday at 5 o'clock, aged nearly 93 years, after an illness of about two weeks. While he has not been strong for some years he was confined to the house but a few days. Mr. Sample came to this part of the state when a young man, taking up land where he has since lived from the government some 70 years ago. The deed has never been transferred and the title is just as he received it from Uncle Sam. His wife died some fifteen years ago since which time he has lived with his son. Four daughters and two sons survive him, Mesdames George Welsh, S. J. Marsaw, Wm H. Kinney and A. R. Martin with Gilbert and Albert Sample. The funeral was held from the Baptist church in this city yesterday afternoon, Rev. McFarlane officiating. The remains were laid to rest in the Croswell cemetery.
