Grandjean - Frank Grandjean died died Sunday morning at 6 o'clock at his residence in Blumfield. Sept. 26, 1904, while at work in the haymow of his barn he fell to the floor beneath and crushed his spinal column, and on Oct. 19 following he was brought to this city and taken to the Saginaw General hospital, where an operation was performed, but the injury was such that it would not yield to treatment. He remained in the hospital for 13 months and on Nov. 20, 1905, he was removed to his home in Blumfield. To his family he never faltered, looking on the bright side of life, and to the last he never complained of the intense pain which he must have suffered, but bore it all with patience and fortitude one seldom sees in one so afflicted. During this long siege he was unable to help himself, the injury making him an invalid, and it demanded the constant attention of his sisters and brothers to care for him. He was a single man and was born on the old homestead where he died March 31, 1861, and leaves three sisters and two brothers, Mrs. A.C. Herbst of Libby, Mont.; Misses Elizabeth and Antonia and Henry of Blumfield, and William of Quanicassee, Mich. He was a member of Blumfield tent, K.O.T.M.M. The funeral will take place Wednesday at 1:30 from the residence, Rowland Connor officiating. Interment at Blumfield.
