BROTHER AND SISTER DIE CLOSE TOGETHER

The latter was Mrs. Harvey G. Dickey, Formerly of This Place, A Woman Greatly Admired by Malone Friends.

A dispatch from Richmond, Vt., dated July 26, to the Burlington Free Press says. "By a strange coincidence a brother and sister, former residents of Burlington, Hiram E.

"Mrs. Dickey leaves her husband and a son, Dr. Gilmore C. Dickey, of Boston. A joint funeral will be will be held at the Congregational church in Richmond at 2.30 p. m. on Tuesday."

The above brief statement tells a story almost tragic in a family enjoying these summer holidays at their summer home and the sympathy of hosts of Malone friends goes out to Mr. Dickey for many years a resident of this village, and his son in their bereavement.

Mrs. Dickey was a. woman of most lovable qualities and engaging personality, who resided in Malone with the late Mr. and Mrs. Baker Stevens, for three years after her marriage in 1876 and made friends during that time of all whom she met.

In Memoriam

Horace Colby was born of New England parents May 10, 1807 in Henniker, N.H. He received a liberal education and followed teaching when a young man. He was united in marriage to Miss Ruth Barker Aug. 26, 1841 and came to Michigan in the Fall of 1844. They located in Kent county in the township of Courtland, then a wilderness, on the tract of land which has been the Colby homestead all these years. He professed faith in Christ when a young man and united with the M. E. church in 1841 and of which he has continued a faithful member until his death, which occurred about 11 o’clock Friday night after a comparatively short illness.

His pioneer life in this county is characterized by his earnest and untiring labors in education and Sunday school work. He taught by precept and example the principles of truth and right and for more than 80 years he and his faithful wife lived in peace and happiness and for more than half a century upon the farm which they hewed from the forest. Here their nine children were reared composed of five sons and four daughters as follows: Isaac C. of Boyne, Truman W. of Algoma, James, on the old homestead, Joshua H. of Hart, Rothwell B. of Cadillac, Nelia, at the old homestead, Mrs. May Jones, of Plainfield, Angelina as invalid at the old homestead and Abbie M. who is teaching this year near the City of Grand Rapids.

He was honored and respected by all who knew him. He was a man of sterling integrity and unblemished character, a loyal citizen, true to his convictions of principle. Thus a well rounded life is ended and the fast thread is broken which has bound the family ties together for so many years. Our loss is his eternal gain.

Funeral services were help as the homestead Monday afternoon, conducted by Re. R. J. Slee and he was tenderly laid to rest in the Courtland cemetery.

Buried: Courtland Cemetery, Rockford, Mich.

==================

Mills Attract Early Settlers


The Dowagiac Creek gave the city its start when William Renesten established his carding mill in 1831. Two years later he dammed the creek to create the millpond, still to be seen at the edge of the city limits on M-62 East. In 1833 his grist mill was built. It was sold to Holmes Spaulding the following year. Spaulding also built a saw mill at the same time. Settlers wishing to live close to the mills began to settle in the area.

Horace Colby purchased the grist mill in the 1860s. It was known as the upper mill. Colby also owned another grist mill, a quarter mile downstream, known as the lower mill. Today, it is owned by Mennel Milling Company, which is the oldest mill in Michigan still in operation on its original site.
