An Old Resident Dead.
Harrison Dodge, one of the old settlers of the county, died at his home in the town of Spring Brook Saturday, February 22, at the age of eighty-five.
Mr. Dodge was born in Unity, Maine, October 21, 1816. In 1839 he married Miss Martha Webb of his native town. They came west in 1855, settling first at Janesville in this state. Three years later they moved to this county, making their home in the town of Spring Brook. Mrs. Dodge died in 1897. Six children still survive. Two sons, Alphonso and Jackson, are residents of Spring Brook. The other son, Augustus, lives at Rice Lake. Of the three daughters, two, Mrs. Lottie Wallace and Mrs. Eliza Webster, live in Spring Brook, and one, Mrs. Abbie Blair, is a resident of this city. The funeral was held last Tuesday from the M. E. Church at Waneka, Rev. Jas. Jefferson officiating.
