Transcribed biography of Cyrus A. Bay


Born about 1826, near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; married to Miss Lucinda Frame, March 21, 1850. at New Buffalo, Mich.; died April 14, 1900, at his home in Wheeler, Indiana. He was a good soldier and served through the war. Since the war he has lived in Chicago and Porter county, Indiana, most of the time in the latter, being by occupation a carpenter and cabinet maker. His wife died in February, 1894, in Chicago, but he leaves behind some children, who have sent the above picture as a token of their love and regard for the memory of their soldier father. Mrs. M. L. Crull, one of the daughters, in sending it says: "He was a natural cook and since mother's death has kept up the home most of the time by himself; he loved his home to his dying day, and I am there to-day, May 22d, getting ready for his children to come home on Decoration Day. He was a member of the M. E. church. Oh! how we shall miss him when the Memorial Day comes this year." Mrs. Crull's address is Wheeler, Indiana.
