Charles M. Colby, Lake City, is a son of Ford Colby, one of the pioneers of this state. This subject was born in Eaton, Compton county, Province of Quebec, June 29, 1844, and was therefore about fourteen years old when he came with his parents to this state. His youth was spent on a farm there and here, and his intellect trained in the common schools. Notwithstanding his limited educational opportunities, Mr. Colby is a gentleman of more than ordinary acquirements. For many years he owned and tilled a farm in the town of Lake, which he sold in 1883. For some time his winters were spent in mercantile pursuits in the city, and in 1881 he removed thither. For six years he was employed as drygoods salesman by C. F. Rogers, and subsequently by C. F. Young. He was two years clerk in the Merchant's Hotel. He has always been a republican, and is a member of the Odd-Fellows lodge and encampment here. January 19, 1881, he was united in marriage to Miss Alice, daughter of John Disney, one of the pioneers of Gillford township, this county. To this union has been given a daughter, now (March, 1884) one and one-half years of age.

Charles Steven Colby died at his home in this city Thursday night, Jan. 29, aged 29 years, 2 months and 29 days.

Mr. Colby was born at Adamsville, Cass Co., Michigan, Nov. 1, 1873. He was married to Miss Edith Nichols on Nov. 25, 1897, at Allegan, Mich. About four years ago Mr. Colby's health began to fail and they removed to this place hoping the change might benefit him. For a time he seemed to improve but last May was compelled to give up work and has gradually failed ever since. He suffered terrible agonies, catarrh of the stomach being the trouble. The funeral was held from the Gospel Mission Church Sunday and the remains interred in the cemetery west of the city. The Rev. Pearl M. Storrey officiated. She took her text from Rev. 7:14, "And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said unto me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." The funeral procession was headed by the Lynden Band, of which Mr. Colby was the organizer and president. Six of the former friends of the young man were pall-bearers. The widow and baby daughter, Miss Alice, and a brother Lynn of Maple Falls are the only relatives in this state. Besides these, other mourning relatives are his parents who live at Adamsville, Mich.; a brother Ray of the same place; brother Otto of California; and a sister Mrs. Chas. A. Adams of Port Huron, Mich.

Mr. Colby was a man of good habits and was highly respected by all who knew him. He was one of the charter members and also secretary of the Gospel Mission Church of this place. He received a commercial education at Notre Dame, Ind. During his long sickness he suffered a great deal but bore it with a vast amount of patience.
