In this city on Saturday, October 1, 1910, occurred the death of Milo Strog, of Artesian, S. Dak. The deceased was born in Rutland, Vermont, July 23, 1837, his mother being a McDonald of the McDonald clan of Scotland, who settled there in an early day. His parents emigrated to Wisconsin in 1840, where he was bereaved of his mother at the age of nine years.

On Nov. 11, 1860, at Eastman. Wisc. he was united in marriage with Sarah E. Thomas, to which union twelve children were born, four of whom survive, George H. Strong and Luella Knowles of this city, Anna E. Miles of Fulton, S. D., and Milo Joel Strong jr. of Galesburg, N. Dak, and ten grandchildren.

In 1862 he answered the call of his country, enlisting in the 31st Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, and served throughout the war, being with Sherman in his march to the sea, and the disbanding of the Army in 1864.

In January 1882, he filed on government land in Ravena Township, the family being among the pioneer settlers of this part of Dakota. In March, 1895 he was united in marriage with Mrs. Phoebe Beam.

The funeral services were held at the church of Farwell on Sunday, October 2, at 2 o’clock, and the remains were laid to rest in the family plot at the Farwell cemetery, being followed there by the sorrowing family, Old Soldier friends, and the Masonic and Odd Fellows lodges of Artesian, and a host of friends.
