He has been renting the hotel for several years and has been engaged in the grocery business. On Dee. 21, 1870, he was married to Miss Nannie M. Lacy, of Todd county who survives him. Four children were born to them, three of whom are living. Mr. Grissain was a man with many strongly marked traits of character. He was jovial and companionable anil no man excelled hi in lu popular ity. He possessed great sagacity as a business man and was successful in whatever he undertook. Asa citizen ho was enterprising and progressive, as a man honest and reliable in all things. He was a man who will be missed greatly iu the community and in many respects his ulaco will be hard to till.

While there he was stricken down with a serious af fection of the bowels from which he recovered after being at death's door for several days, but pneumonia at tacked him ten days later and baffled the skill of his physicians from t lie first.
