Hanley Curtis

At his home one mile north of Hobart, Lake county, Mr. Hanley Curtis, from injuries received in rescuing a man in a fit had fallen into a mowing machine.

Mr. Curtis was born in Macoon county, Michigan, April 16, 1832. He came to the neighborhood of Hobart, July 5, 1838, where he has since lived, with the exception of three or four years spent in California. He was cheerful and patient throughout all his sufferings and was ready and willing to go. His peace was made with God, and he spoke with confidence of the home beyond. He was a kind neighbor and a faithful husband. He leaves a wife, two brothers, two sisters, and a mother, 87 years old, to mourn his loss. His funeral sermon was preached at the Swede church, 5 or 6 miles north of Hobart, by Elder E. S. Riley, to a large congregation of friends and neighbors, after which his body was deposited with Masonic ceremonies in the cemetery close by.
