William A. Bull

BULL. -- In December last, at North Marshall, Calhoun county, Michigan, of cancer, William A. Bull is the 60th year of his age.

Mr. Bull was a brother of Mrs. George Longshore and formerly a resident of Twenty Mile Prairie. He removed from there to Michigan about ten years ago, leaving a large number of friends and relatives here. He was the father of eight children and the first of the family to be taken by the hand of death. As a family they cherished strong affections for one-another, and during the long and painful illness preceding his death, everything was done that loving hands could do to mitigate his suffering. On the fourth day of the following February the stricken family were called to the death bed of Marion Eaton, daughter of the above, who died of consumption, leaving a husband and a son eight years old.

Though father and daughter so near together
Have past the cold tide of death's dark flowing river,
Weep not! give not vent to misgiving,
Mourn not for the deed, but weep for the living.
Be thankful to God that your dear ones are gone
To the mansions prepared round His glorified throne.
They have gone from this earth to the regions above
There to sing evermore of God's goodness and love.
