Henry Fellows

Henry Fellows passed away at his home at a little before noon Tuesday, following a general decline of health that had been taking place for some time.

He was born May 11, 1848, at Clarkston, Monroe county, New York. There he spent the early years of his life until he came to Wisconsin

He was married September 7, 1868 to Miss Helen Adell Fessenden, of the town of Porter. They lived for a number of years on the farm about six miles east of Evansville. For the last twenty-eight years they have made their home in this city.

Mr. Fellows has during these years been engaged in the implement and machinery business, the last few years in partnership with his son. He has made an enviable reputation for honesty and fair dealing in all of his business transactions.

He had five sisters and two brothers, four of whom, Mrs. Marie Lee, Mrs. Sarah Gillman and Mrs. Frances Scofield of this city, and Mrs. Mary Case of Belmont, Iowa, survive him. Besides the wife and one son, Almond Frank Fellows, he leaves three grandchildren, Kenneth Sargent, Ronald William and Elizabeth Fellows.

He was a member of the Knights of Pythias, the Woodmen and the Maccabees.

The funeral service was held at the home this afternoon and was in charge of Rev. Chas E. Coon of the Methodist Episcopal church. The Knights of Pythias had the service in Maple Hill cemetery, their service being delivered by Mr. R. M. Richmond.

A large number of friends and business associates were present to honor the memory of one whom all admired.

Mrs. Helen Fellows

The funeral of Mrs. Helen Fellows, who died at 7:00 p.m., Satruday, was held from the home of her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Elizabeth Fellows, North Second St., at 3:00 p.m., Monday, Rev. O. W. Smith of the Congregational Church officiating. Interment was in Maple Hill Cemetery. Mrs. Helen Fessingdon Fellows was born April 9, 1850, int he town of Porter and was the last of eleven children of Horace and Saloma Fessingdon. On Sept. 7, 1868 she was married to Henry Fellows. Her only son, Almond passed away six years ago. Her husband in 1910. So one by one she saw her near loved ones slip away, until at the end of her earthly life there remained three grandchildren: Kenneth, Ronald and Elizabeth Fellows. One can understand why her heart clung to her grandchildren. She suffered a serious accident many moons ago, and since that time has been a helpless sufferer. Death came to liberate and free.
