RELIEF COMES AT LAST
With the death of Adam Monroe Ballard, which occurred at his home in this village on Thursday evening, Aug. 25th, Weyauwega again mourns the passing of one of the fast disappearing Civil War veterans.
Deceased had been ill for about six weeks and death was caused by arteriosclerosis.
Adam Monroe Ballard was born to Stephen Ballard and wife at Otto, N. Y. on July 13, 1845 and reached the ripe old age of 82 years, 1 month, and 12 days.
On Oct. 17, 1868 he was united in marriage with Miss Emma Jane Baker, at Ogdensburg, Wis. by the Rev. Eli Green. After residing on a farm in the town of Waupaca for many years they retired 22 years ago and moved to this village, which has since been their home. Six children were born to this union: Mrs. Adella Axtell, of Waupaca; Royal Ballard, of Weimar, Cal. Arthur, of Weyauwega; and Leslie, of Globe, Arizona; Two children, Mrs. May Farley and Floyd Farley, having preceded their father to the Great Beyond.
Other surviving near relatives are one sister, Mrs. Albert Baker, of Plainfield, three daughters-in-law, and thirteen grandchildren, besides a great many other relatives, friends and acquaintances.
Deceased was a corporal in the 42nd regiment and a staunch member of the M. E. Church of this village, from which a military funeral was held at two o'clock on Saturday afternoon, Aug. 26, Rev. J. M. Kellock officiating. Internment was made in Oakwood Cemetery. The singers were Mrs. Osthelder and the Misses Kate McCall and Nora Rohde, Mrs. Mae Bennett presiding at the piano. Members of the American Legion acted as pall-bearers, and Taps were sounded by Donovan Ballard, grandson of the departed.
Mr. Ballard was a highly respected citizen, a kind and loving husband and father, and a model example of christianity. His absence will not only be felt in the homes of his loved ones, but his companionship will be sadly missed by his daily associates. The floral tributes were many and beautiful and a large assembly gathered to pay their last respects to the departed.
The names of out-of-town attendants at the funeral are as follows: Mrs. Adella Axtell and children Mr. and Mrs. John Farley, Royalton, Seth Ballard, Mrs. Frank Ballard, Waupaca, Irving Baker, Mattoon, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Hutchins, Miss Irma Farley, Neenah, Mr. and Mrs. Herrick Hutchins, Oshkosh, Mr. and Mrs. George Farley, Ogdensburg; Mr. and Mrs. Royal Green, Plainfield; Volney Baker, Mattoon; and Mrs. Albert Baker, Plainfield.
