"Daddy" Salter Crosses Dark River! PDF (5.7 MB)


His place was the rendevous for deer hunters and when the prairie chicken
season opened it was the headquarters for many sportsman.  He and his good
wife delighted in making their guests happy and comfortable.  "Daddy
is gone--and died an unbeliever--let us cast the mantel of charity over his
past for his many good deeds will greatly overbalance his faults and will
ever remain keen in the memory of his friends.  The funeral took place from
the home of his son George H. Salter in this city yesterday afternoon and
services conducted by Rev. A. J. Arn, for whom "Daddy"
always entertained
great respect.   The burial was in the family lot at New Lisbon cemetary.
Eight children survive him, viz: George H. Salter of New Lisbon, James Salter
of town of Lisbon, and Fred Salter of Necedah, Harry Salter Necedah, Frank
Salter of Fountain, Mrs. Mary Fish and Miss Carry Salter of Clearfield and
Mrs Emma J. Rummo of Lone Pine, California, all of whom attended the obsequies
except Mrs. Rumro.  We extend sympathy to the chil-dren in their sorrow.
