A NOBLE PIONEER GONE.
Henry Brayton, One of Nobles County's Highly Esteemed Pioneers Passed
On Easter morning, about 4:00 o'clock, Henry Brayton, one of Indian Lake
township's aged and highly respected citizens, died at the age of 74
years, 1 month and 9 days, at his home 3 miles southwest of town.
Funeral services were held in the Presbyterian church in Round Lake,
Wednesday, at 2:00 o'clock p.m., conducted by Rev. Walker. A large
concourse of sympathizing neighbors and friends was present to pay their
last respects to the deceased. The remains were interred in Round Lake
cemetery, southeast of town.
Henry Brayton was born in Washington county, New York, March 6, 1832,
and his early youth was spent among the pioneers of western New York in
Erie county, near Buffalo. In 1853 he came to Delaware county, Iowa,
with its first settlement when there was not a mile of railroad nearer
than Rockford, Illinois. In that early day he established a boot, shoe
and harness shop at Delhi, Iowa, where he remained for a bout 15 years.
He was married September 28, 1865, in Chicago to Celestia A. Clough, of
Concord, New Hampshire, living in Delhi, Iowa, for some time thereafter,
and where he still has a host of friends who hold him in the highest
esteem for his unfailing honesty and manliness - while at Delhi he went
to the front in 1861 as regimental musician under Col. Peters; serving
until discharged on account of sickness.
The wife who survives him has followed him as a faithful helpmate thru
pioneer vicissitudes in two states. After a year on the frontier of
Kansas he took up his abode in Indian Lake township, Minnesota, on a
soldier's homestead on the 29th of August, 1869, where he resided up to
the time of his death.
It is believed that he built the first frame house in what is now Nobles
county, and that his wife was the first white woman in the county. He
helped to organize Nobles county and was its first county treasurer; an
office he held for several years, and was also treasurer of the township
in which he lived for many years.
He belonged pre-eminently to that sturdy class of pioneers who have left
us sich a rich heritage in the memory of their unselfish lives.
"Hank" Brayton, as he was known to a host of friends in several states,
was a man whose honesty was never questioned and it was the pride of his
life that no man could justly question the purity of his motives. These
pioneers are fast passing away, and the sacred duty is left ot us to
build well on the honest foundations they have laid for us.
Mr. Brayton leaves an aged wife, two sons and four grandchildren, and an
aged sister at Buffalo, N.Y., who with a host of friends will always
cherish his memory.
Henry Brayton and Lucy Brayton, children of his only brother, of
Manchester, Iowa, were in attendance at the funeral.
Another pioneer is gone and another landmark has become but a memory.
