DEATH OF AMPLIUS B. AVERY
At 6:30 o'clock Saturday evening, Nov. 1st, Amplius B. Avery died at Prairie Du Sac, Wisconsin. The deceased has been ill for nearly a year, although his illness was not thought to be fatal until several months ago when it was learned he was suffering from cancer of the stomach. He was able to be around a greater part of the time until about a week before he died.
Deceased was born at Topsham, Orange Co. Vt. February 19, 1830, when a boy of 15 moved to Bradford, Vt. where he remained until he came to West Point, Wisc., in September. 1852. He bought some land, and after spending about a year on the place returned to Vermont, where he was married to Jane P. Chase, of Bradford, November 23, 1853. Then they returned to West Point and settled on their farm, where they resided until they moved to Prairie du Sac about two years ago.
He spent nearly three years in the Civil War, leaving home in September, 1862, and returning in July, 1855 (sic), being a member of Co. H., 23d Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry.
Besides the sorrowing wife, two sons, Fremont and Walter, both of West Point, are left to mourn his loss. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at 1 o'clock. After a prayer at the house the remains were taken to the M. C. Church, where services were continued, Rev. James Ford assisted by Rev. Foulkes, and Rev. W. J. Turner of Prairie du Sac, officiating. The remains were laid to rest at the Prairie du Sac Cemetery.
