Short, William H. (5 FEB 1875 - 8 MAY 1906)

William H. Short died at the hospital in Marshfield Tuesday, May 8, 1906. He was suffering from an attack of appendicitis for a few days previous, and had gone to the hospital for an operation, which had been successfully performed on Monday, and all indications appeared favorable for rapid recovery, until a few minutes before his death, his heart suddenly ceased to act. He was conscious almost to the last moment.

He was born in the town of Washburn, Clark County Feb. 5, 1875, being the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Short. From early boyhood he was known and respected for his uprightness, honesty and good character. He was an earnest student, and for several years was one of the best teachers in this county. Later he took the course at the Dairy School in Madison and had since engaged in the creamery and cheese business. March 15, 1900, he was married to Nettie Counsel of Pleasant Ridge, who with their two children, a boy and a girl, survive him. About a year ago while operating the North Star Creamery in Grant, he was offered the management of the Fond du Lac butter and Cheese Co.?s commission business in Marshfield, where he moved with his family. No sadder death has occurred in this vicinity in years. He was a vigorous, energetic and intelligent man, just established in a useful and honorable position, his home life ideal; his place in the community one that he had worked up to by painstaking labor and study, was one that should be an inspiration to boys and young men who have to work their way in life. He was above all, a man of clean morals and above reproach.

Besides his wife and children, he leaves his parents, two sisters and two brothers and many other relatives and friends to mourn his death. It is needless to say that this entire community fells the deepest sympathy for them in their bereavement.

The funeral will be held in Neillsville On Friday afternoon at 1 o?clock, Rev. W.P. Burrows officiating.
