Sr Carrie on In Rk
At 6:30 this morning the final
summons came to Elijah Hersey, the
aged and highly respected father of
Mrs. A. H. Lambert, Sr., of old age,
at 749 Thirtieth street. Mr. Hersey
was born in Dedham, Mass., April
26, 1806, and on Oct. 15, 1827 was
married to Miss Emeline Anne Whit,
ncy, at Natick, Mass. Until three
years ago Mr. and Mrs. Hersey were
residents of Elmira. N. Y., from
which city thev removed to Oakland,
Cal. On October 28, 1X9.1, they re
moved to Rock Island and took np
their abode with their daughter,
Mrs. Lambert, at the above men
tioned residence. Besides his aged
wife. Mr. Hersey leaves one son,
George H., a banker, of Gilroy, Cal.,
and Mrs. A. H. Lambert.
Mr. Hersey had all the attainments
and characteristics which go to make
a grand old gentleman, and the deep
grief which the family feel at his loss
will be shared by a larsre number of
sympathetic friends, not only in the I
east, but in the west as well. Al
though Mr. Hersey had attained the
exceedingly mature age 01 88 years,
yet his appearance would far from
warrant the belief that he had seen so
many 3'ears. Ho was a man posses
sed of a strong christian character,
and wherever he has made his home
he has been noted for his kind and
jovial disposition and has gained the
reputation of being generous to a
fault. During his long residence in
Elmira he was a member of the Inde
pendent Congregational church, of
which Rev. Thomas K. Beecher was
J he funeral, which will be private
at Mr. Hersey's request, will be held
tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock
from the late residence on Elm
street. Rev. T. W. Grafton, of the
Christian church, officiating.
Frederick G . Thlerman.
Grown old 'in tho service of his
adopted country, may be justlv
said of Frederick G. Thiernian, who
died last evening at 10:30, of a com
plication of diseases, from which he
had been suffering for tho past two
years. Mr. Thierman was born in
Bremen, Germany, in 1822, and
when a lad 9 years old moved with
his parents to where Milwaukee is,
but then a little settlement. When
the Mexican war broke out Mr.
Thierman was one of the first to re
spond to his country's appeals, and
all through that eventful war he
served gallantly. When the civil
war came Mr. Thierman again
responded to the call for volunteers
and spent four years more in the ser
vice of his adopted land. When at
last the clouds had rolled away and
peace and quiet once more reigned,
he returned to his home in Wisconsin
and lived there until 14 years ago,
when he retired from the active pur
suits of life and moved to Rock Isl
and, taking up his abode at 2S43,
Ninth avenue, where he has since re
sided. Besides his aged wife, he leaves
seven children, as follows: George,
of Cheboygan, Wis.; Frederick, Ed
ward and Gustav, of Rock Island:
Mrs. Rosa I). Percy and Ida D.
Percy, of Lake City, Iowa; and Mrs.
Minnie J. Paxton. of Garrison, Wis.
The funeral will occur tomorrow
afternoon at 2 o'clock.
