Gregory, William Clair (6 OCT 1892 – 23 Jan 1919)

William Clair Gregory died at his home a mile south of Columbia at about three o’clock Thursday morning after a week’s illness with the flu followed by complications. On Wednesday a consultation with physicians was held at his home, but not much hope was held out for his recovery. Death occurred from heart failure at the hour above noted.

Will Gregory was employed as mail carrier out of the Columbia Post Office for some months. Previous to that occupation he had charge of his father-in-law’s farm. He was born in Alma Center Oct. 6, 1892, being 26 years, 3 months and 18 days of age. He is survived by his wife and two young children; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. W.E. Gregory, of this village; four brothers and two sisters. One of the children of the deceased is seriously ill, and it was in helping to care for the little one while he himself was ill with the flu that caused the relapse and resulted in his death. – Humbird Enterprise
