Bunnell, Cornelius (18 OCT 1826 - 26 MAR 1892)

Died, at his residence two mile south of this city (Colby, Clark Co., Wis.), on Saturday, March 26th, 1892, from paralysis, Cornelius Bunnell, in the 66th year of his age.

Cornelius Bunnell was born in Connecticut, Oct. 18th, 1826, was married to Mrs. Sally Kyser about 37 years ago. In the spring of 1866 he moved with his family to Wisconsin and settled at Horicon, Dodge Co. He came to Colby in the spring of 1876 and settled in the town of Hull, Marathon Co., where he has since resided, respected by all who knew him, as a quiet, honest and upright citizen.

His death was very sudden, as up to Friday evening he was feeling in usual health, but about four o’clock Saturday morning he began to groan and act strangely. Mrs. Bunnell asked him what was the matter and he was unable to answer. From that time he failed rapidly until about 10 o’clock a.m., he breathed his last.

His wife and three sons mourn his sudden death.

The funeral occurred on Tuesday at the M. E. Church, Rev. Thos. Biggar officiating, and the remains interred in Colby Cemetery.
