Henry Brayton, One of Nobles County's Highly Esteemed Pioneers Passed Away.
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.
