Kimball, Edwin C. (1868 - 7 JAN 1907)

Edwin C. Kimball died at St. Joseph?s Hospital in Ashland at five o?clock, Monday, Jan. 7, 1907. He had been sick a few days, but though it was only a cold. On Monday he went to the hospital without assistance, although nearly in a state of collapse on his arrival, pneumonia in a severe form having developed. His father, J.A. Kimball, received a telegram telling of his sickness late in the afternoon and started immediately, learning of his death at Merrillan. The father proceeded to Ashland and returned Wednesday morning with the remains, accompanied by Guy Youmans, who had gone to his assistance.

Deceased was thirty-eight years of age. He was born on the farm in Pine Valley, Clark County, attending the country school and the school in Neillsville. About eighteen years ago he was married to Maggie Brulery, who died Christmas Day 1898. For a long time he has been in railroad work, being a freight conductor on the Omaha line, and made his headquarters at Washburn. He was a man of good standing, efficient in his line of work and well liked by the company and the people along the line. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge at Spooner and of the Order of Railway Conductors of St. Paul.

He leaves two children, Clara aged fifteen and Lloyd aged eleven, who since their mother?s death have made their home with their grandfather J.A. Kimball, making frequent visits and spending vacations with their father. He leaves also three sisters, Emma and Gertrude Kimball and Mrs. W. Scott Davis of Granton and one brother, Elmer, to mourn his death. On every hand are heard expressions of sympathy for those bereaved, and to many here who were his personal friends in days gone by, his death brings sincere sorrow.

The funeral will be held today (Thursday) at 2 p.m. at the Congregational Church, under the auspices of Neillsville Masonic Lodge. Representatives of the Spooner Lodge, who accompanied the body here, will be present, also a delegation of the railroad fraternity.
