Wallace R. Barton Dead
Leading Tecumseh Citizen Dies at His Home
Former Member of Legislature
Tecumseh, Neb., March 10. -- (Special Telegram.) -- Wallace R. Barton, for many years a prominent citizen of Tecumseh, died at his home here last evening. He had been in failing health for two or three years. Mr. Barton was a native of Vermont, a marble cutter by trade, and during his life had lived in the New England states, Louisiana, Texas and Colorado. He was sixty-seven years of age, and is survived by the widow. He buried two daughters in their infancy.
Mr. Barton was an old soldier and a prominent Mason, as well as being affiliated with three or four other orders. He was a republican member of the twenty-sixth session of the Nebraska legislature, being senator from the second district. He had served as county commissioner and had been twice elected mayor of Tecumseh. For a good many years he was associated with Charles Neldhart of Beatrice in the marble and granite business in Beatrice, Tecumseh and Nebraska City and had recently sold his business. The funeral will probably be held Friday.
