DEATH OF SAMUEL EXTANT (EXTANCE)
One of Prairie Ronde Townships Best Citizens Gone.
     As was briefly stated by The Express last week.  Samuel EXTANT (EXTANCE) departed this life on Thursday afternoon, December 31, 1896, after being confined to his bed but a few days, the cause of his demise being diabetis.
     The deceased was born in England, December 15, 1839, and at an early age came to this country, landing in New York when only 13 years old.  He remained in New York one year, when he came to Kalamazoo county and for several years found employment in the township of Porter and Prairie Ronde.  February 7, 1864, he was united in marriage to Miss Mary P. GRANGER, and continued to reside in this vicinity until 1868, when they moved to Missouri, where his wife died on February 28, 1878.  To this union was born five children, four sons and one daughter, the oldest son dying in infancy, the others all being residents of this county.  Soon after the death of his wife he moved with his children to Kansas, but after a few months decided to return to Michigan, arriving here December 3, 1880, and a few days later, on December 9, he was again married to Mrs. Isabell I. GRANGER.  Seven children blessed this union, one son and six daughters; the eldest daughter died July 24, 1885.  The son died August 24, 1890, the sad circumstances of each of these deaths yet remaining fresh in the minds of many of our readers.  Thus the widow and five little daughters and other children are let to mourn the loss of a kind and loving husband and father, and the community one of its most worthy and industrious citizens.
     The funeral services were conducted from the Terry school house on Sunday, January 3, by Rev. C. E. Blanchard, who took his text from Psalms 46, first clause of the tenth verse.  Washington Tent, K.O.T.M., of which the deceased was an honored member, attended the funeral in a body.  The burial was at Harrison's corners.
Note:  Samuel J. Extance married Mary P. GRANGER, daughter of Morey F. GRANGER and Abigail MARKHAM, on February 07, 1864 in Kalamazoo Co., Michigan.  This was submitted by Dolores Knight who has an original clipped from the Schoolcraft Express in 1897.  Dolores is a descendant of Samuel and Mary P. (GRANGER) EXTANCE.
