Garfield, Albert H. #2 (20 AUG 1866 - 4 DEC 1908)

Albert H. Garfield died at his home in the town of Lake, Pierce Co., Wis., Dec. 4, 1908, after a lingering illness of tuberculosis. About two years ago, in hopes of regaining his health, he went to Denver, Colorado, remaining there about one and one-half years, receiving but little benefit. In returning to Wisconsin he took up his residence in Pierce Co.

Bert Garfield, as he was familiarly known here, was born near Waterloo, Jefferson Co., Wis., Aug. 20, 1866. He came with his parents to this county (Clark Co., Wis.) when but a small child, where he grew to manhood. After traveling about for some time he returned to Neillsville, where he opened a barber shop, continuing to follow this business until his health failed him, and in the fall of 1906 went west.

On Aug. 5, 1902, Mr. Garfield was married to Miss Ethel Bergman of River Falls, who with one little daughter, Eva, five years of age, survives him. Three brothers, W. E. Garfield of Neillsville, Geo. and L. W. Garfield of Olivet, and two sisters, Mary L. Parker of Spring Valley and Helen J. Tousley of Olivet, also survive him.

Burial took place at Rock elm on Tuesday, Dec. 8th. Mr. Garfield was a member of the Modern Woodmen, Eagles and Beaver Lodges, continuing to hold his membership in the local organization of those fraternities in Neillsville up to the time of his death. Not only in these fraternities, but in Neillsville and for many miles around, had many friends who will sorrow to learn of his death, and who extend to his bereaved wife and child their sincere sympathy.
