Brasier, John F. (1 JUN 1834 - 2 FEB 1911)
The death angel has once more visited our community (Loyal, Clark County, Wis.) and taken from our midst another old settler, when on Thursday, Feb. 2, 1911, the soul of John F. Brasier, freed from the frail and suffering body of clay entered into its well earned rest. Mr. Brasier was born in Canada June 1, 1834. When a boy of eleven his parents moved to Hartford, Wis., where they resided for a few years. In 1860 he went to Sheboygan Co., where he settled on a farm. On Dec. 25, 1862, he was married to Miss Mary A. Shaver; to this union were born ten children, of whom seven are living, Jennie E. Philpott, who resides near Loyal, Robert E. of Chippewa Falls, Mrs. Harriet E. Fisher of Battle Creek, Mich., Emily S. Huffman of Lincoln, Nebraska, Albon E. who resides in Loyal, Olive E. Irvine of the town of Beaver and Ray E. of Minocqua. He moved with his family to Clark County, Wis. in the fall of 1879, where he made his home until his death. Beside the children named above he leaves to mourn his departure, his wife, one sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Parker of the town of Beaver, many grandchildren and other near relatives.
Mr. Brasier was a man of splendid Christian character, a kind husband, a loving father and a good and helpful neighbor. Such a man, of broad charity, kin heart and gentle manner dying is a distinct loss to any community. For years he had been a patient sufferer, confined to the house and at the last his sufferings were most intense, yet he bore it all with Christian fortitude and submission.
The funeral was held in the Methodist Church Sunday, Feb. 5th, at one o'clock. Rev. E. R. Kildow preached from the test so often upon the lips of the departed and so very appropriate, "Blessed are the dead who died in the Lord."
