Mr. Jerry E. Flint of River Falls, Wis. was suddenly stricken by a fatal stroke of apoplexy last Sunday night, at the home of G. C. Winchester in this city, with whom he was visiting at the time. Mr. Flint had been here about two weeks, visiting with his old friends and business associates, Mr. Winchester in partnership with whom he was for years, engaged in general merchandise in this city, and at Angus under the firm name of Flint & Winchester Company, a well known firm of the pioneer days in this part of the country. He was a frequent visitor to Warren, especially in the early days, and had a wide circle of friends here and throughout the valley.
In late years his health had not been very good, and about a year ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis, which at that time came nearly to being fatal. He seemed, however, to be in fairly good health during this last visit. On Sunday he attended divine services twice, and dined at the home of a friend, feeling quite cheerful. He retired Sunday night, apparently well and cheerful, but about 12 o'clock he awakened members of Mr. Winchester's household and complained of feeling ill. A physician was immediately summoned, but Jerry Flint was then fighting his last battle, and about 20 minutes passed 2 o'clock he expired.
Mr. Flint was 69 years of age at the time of his death. His home was at Fall River, Wisc. where he leaves a number of relatives. He was never married. During the Civil War he served in the Fourth Wisconsin (Cavalry), coming out with a lieutenants commission.
The remains were shipped to River Falls on Monday night, escorted by G. C. Winchester of this city, and Archie Noyes of St. Vincent. Thus has another valley pioneer dropped by the wayside, laid down the burden of his life, and passed on to peace and rest.
