Dr. F. B. Hyland passed away Sun
day morning at his home on the corner
of Main and Page streets. His sudden
death comes as a surprise and shock to
all. He had been in his usual good
health, had greatly enjoyed on Christ
mas day the gathering of the entire
family of children and grandchildren,
had played Santa Claus for the little
ones and entered into all their good
cheer, and retired at night apparently
about as well as usual. Sunday morn
ing he arose about half past 6 o’clock,
and after attending to the furnace, sat
in his easy chair in the living room,
and in a little while appeared to be
asleep; but soon after 7 o’clock, as
they spoke to him and received no re
sponse, they discovered he had quietly
passed away. Medical attendance was
summoned at once, but he was gone.
Dr. Hyland was born in Mannsville,
Jefferson county, N. Y., in 1845. Two
years later, in 1847, he was brought by
his parents to Janesville, Wis., and
about a year later they moved to Ful
ton, Wis., where the doctor’s boyhood
was passed. In early manhood Dr.
Hyland found himself possessed of a
remarkable healing power which he de
veloped by use until finally he gave his
whole time to the practice of this gift
for the good of humanity. And in the
going of Dr. Hyland the family and
community and a very wide circle of
friends have met with a great loss;
many will mourn for him; many will
realize deeply their need of him and
miss him sorely. The funeral was held
Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 o’clock
from thp.Universalist church.
