Stringham, Charles (26 Dec 1839, Binghamton, Broome, NY - 13 Jan. 1904, Lamartine twp., Fond du Lac, WI)

Chas. Stringham, who resides near Unity,Wisconsin and whose death occurred last Wednesday night, committed suicide by taking poison. The examination made Saturday evening and Sunday by District Attorney F. W. Genrich and Sheriff W. R. Chellis clearly established this fact.

Stringham resided with his son William and family, having a room separate from those used by them. The old gentleman became despondent and decided to take his own life. He purchased a bottle of chloroform at Colby and a bottle of aconite at Marshfield. Before taking the fatal dose he wrote a letter to his son, announcing that he..... missing content.

*Charles F. Stringham was married to Emma Bruce (b. 1845) and the son of Uriah H. Stringham and Rebecca Aldrich.
