Lucius M. Haskins, aged 80 years, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ida M. Lee, at Penawawa last Friday, old age being given as the cause of death.

Mr. Haskins was a veteran of the Civil War, but not a G. A. R man. He has lived in Colfax the last 15 years, and was one of our wealthiest citizens.

The remains were brought here from Penawawa Sunday evening, and have been held pending the arrival of his son, O. N. Haskins, from Glidden, Iowa, who arrived Wednesday. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon at 1 o'clock from the M. E. Church, the Rev. George H. Newman officiating., interment taking place in Colfax cemetery

The deceased leaves a wife, and a daughter, besides the one mentioned above, Mrs. F. A. Cowie, of Deer Park, Washington. Mr. Haskins was born in Addison County, Vermont, December 19, 1827. When 20 years old he moved to Iowa, where in 1851 he married Miss Catherine Hoppas. In 1864 he entered the Union Army, and was with Sherman in the famous march to the sea. In 1892 he came to Colfax, where he has since resided.

Although not a man of rugged health, Mr. Haskins lived to a good old age. He was the first death in his immediate family. He was a quiet, retiring man, with correct ideals of life, which carried him, without loss of character, through pioneer and army experiences. During the 15 years he has lived in Colfax he has been held in high esteem by everyone that knew him.
