It was with feelings of sincere regret that the friends of Glen Leonard learned of his sudden death on Friday morning.  About his duties as usual on Thursday his familiar figure had been seen by many and it was hard to believe that within a few hours he had been stricken with a fatal malady.

On the morning in question, Mr. Leonard arose as usual and started to dress himself.  He found that he was unable to use his limbs, having only slight power over them.  With assistance he went down stairs and lay down as he complained of a faintness and also a severe heartache.  A physician was summoned but before he reached there the sick man was beyond all help and passed away about 9:15.  During the past few years his health had been somewhat impaired but not to an extent that he had to give up his work and the past year or so he had seemed much better.  No premonition of illness was felt at all and he retired the night before seemingly as well as ever and slept well all night.

Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon, conducted by the Masonic order.

Glen Leonard was born in Ionia County 45 years ago and lived there until he was eight years of age, when he moved to Mt. Pleasant with his parents.  This has ever since been his home and he has spent these years in the same neighborhood in which he died.  He was married 8 years ago.  His father died 12 years ago and his mother five years ago.  He is survived by his heart broken wife, and two sisters and two brothers:  Mrs. Ellen Barnum and Mrs. George Johnson and C. W. Campbell of this city and H. R. Campbell of Muskegon.  The sympathy of the entire community goes out to the wife and other members of his family.

A Growing Infirmity With No Hope Preys On His Mind

Had Been Obliged To Give Up His Education

Funeral Held On Monday At Home of His Parents South of Here

Cleo McMackin

May 13, 1920


One of life's tragedies was enacted near here on Saturday last when Cleo McMackin took his own life during a fit of mental aberration.  The young man had been afflicted with failing eyesight ever since a small child and the well-grounded fear that he might become totally blind and a burden to those about him so preyed upon his mind that in an unguarded moment he snapped the slender cord that bound him here.

The deceased was 18 years of age and was an ambitious boy.  When it became evident that he would lose his eyesight entirely he was sent to the school for the blind in Lansing in hopes that there he would receive the education he so much coveted.  But the surroundings were not to his liking and in a few weeks he returned.  After this more than ever he seemed to brood over the fact that he was doomed to be a burden to his family.

Saturday morning he seemed in good spirits and went to the barn, shortly afterwards he was found there having attempted to hang himself.  He was not yet dead and was taken to the house and everything done to save his life but he died on Sunday.

Funeral services were held Monday forenoon.

The sympathy of the entire community goes out to the afflicted family.

John Warner Does Not Recover Consciousness After Stroke

Had Passed 56th Birthday On April 8 Last

Came To This County When Small Child - Mrs. Warner Dead 3 Years

July 22, 1920


John Warner passed away Saturday evening about 9 o'clock as the result of a second stroke of paralysis at his home on Wednesday evening.  He never recovered consciousness after being stricken.  Several weeks ago he had his first stroke but seemed to be recovering slowly from that.  However, He seemed to sense this last one approaching as he had remarked during the week to several that he thought a second stroke was imminent and not far off.  This apprehension was thought however, to be due to his depressed condition.

John Warner was born in Wood County, Ohio April 8, 1864, having just passed his 56th birthday.  He was but an infant when his parents with their family moved to Ithaca, where they lived three years coming then to Mt. Pleasant in the winter of 1868-1869.  Mr. Warner, Sr., was a carpenter and the family first lived just this side of the Bennett house that now is one of the few buildings in this city at that time.

Here Mr. Warner has always lived excepting during times spent in the west and other places prospecting.

He had been married over 25 years, Mrs. Warner dying three years ago this fall.  For a number of years they have occupied the home on the corner of Normal and Chippewa.  Mr. Warner has been supervisor of the 3rd ward for many years, has held the position of street commissioner, alderman and other position of trust.  He was  always a staunch democrat.

He is survived by his son, Ransom and daughter Ione, to whom the sympathy of the community goes out.  Two brothers and one sister and a number of nephews and nieces survive the deceased.  The brothers are Lorenzo and Delos Warner and the sister is Mrs. Ratliff.

Funeral services were held at the home on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Joseph H. Green officiating.  several relatives from Saginaw were present at the funeral.  It is just a few months since the death of Charles Warner, the oldest brother of Saginaw, occurred.

Ever since Mr. Warner was first taken ill his friends have been apprehensive that it was but the beginning of the end.  Probably no one in Mt. Pleasant had stauncher friends than John Warner and he was always faithful to that friendship.  He like his friends and his friends liked him.  He was devoted to his family and was beloved by them.

Friends Pay Last Tribute to Deceased - Floral Offerings Were Many

October 14, 1920


The funeral of the late Harry F. Dole was held from the W. F. Nesen residence on S. Main Street, Saturday, October 9, at 10 a.m., conducted by Rev. J. G. Wilson.  Interment in Oak Grove was not made until 1:30 p.m. owing to the delay (caused by a railroad accident) of friends and associates of the deceased, who were on their way here from Berwyn to attend the funeral, and were unable to reach the city until a late hour.

The floral offerings were magnificent as was as numerous.  Eight large boxes of exquisite pieces were brought with the part arriving too late for the funeral services, but before the burial, and were tokens of the esteem of the many friends from Mr. Dole's boyhood home.

Harry F. Dole was born in Chicago, Ill., December 17, 1893.  When he was still an infant his parents moved to Kansas City where they resided for about six years when they returned to Illinois, and settled in Berwyn, where they still reside.

At the age of 10 or 12 Harry became a Christian, and united with the Berwyn Baptist church, where he has since been a faithful member.  One of the outstanding characteristics of his life was faithfulness and thoughtfulness of others.

During the dark days of the world war he was among the first to volunteer for service in the Navy, but he carefully refrained from informing his parents of the fact until the call for active service came.  This fact shows his thoughtfulness for his parents.  He served two years, nine months across the Atlantic, and received his discharge at the close of the war.  His life was unsullied by his associations in the Navy, and he came back to his home as clean as he was when he left it.

On the twentieth day of August, 1919, he was united in marriage to Miss Rebecca Nesen of this place and after a short visit with the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Nesen, and other friends and a week at Crystal, the happy young people returned to Berwyn, Ill., where they made their home until about a month ago when they returned to St. Louis and where Harry had just entered the automobile business with Mr. Nesen.  Life's prospects appeared bright and promising until the sad accident of last Wednesday ended all his earthly plans.  Death came immediately after the accident which occurred about 3 p.m.  Telegrams were sent at one to Mr. and Mrs. Dole and Mr. Nesen.

This is the short history of a promising life.  He had lived only 26 years, 9 months and 19 days.  He leaves to mourn their loss his wife, father, mother, two sisters (Cara and Lila) and many other relatives and friends.  He was always cheerful and will be missed by his rapidly growing circle of friends.

What a consolation is the Christian's assurance and hope at such times as these.  Happy are all whose hope in God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

June 21, 1920


Charles A. Vredenburg was born in Jefferson county, Penn., January 21, 1844 and departed this life June 21, 1920, at the Michigan Soldiers Home in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

He served nearly four years in the Civil war and in 1866 was united in marriage to Miss Mary Phillips.  To this union four children were born:  Nettie, Carrie, Nellie and Fannie - Carrie dying in infancy.

The deceased has been a member of the Masonic lodge of Shepherd for 30 years.  He entered the Michigan Soldiers home in 1910 and made that his home until he was called to the great beyond.

He was generous to a fault.  Always thought "It was more blessed to give than to receive."  His aim through life was "To do unto others as he wished to be done by."

He leaves his widow, three daughters:  Mrs. F. C. DuBois of Shepherd,  Mrs. C. G. Bennett of Jennings, and Mrs. N. O. Bissell of Owosso and 13 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren and many friends to mourn his loss.

He was laid to rest with military services in the cemetery at the Michigan Soldier's Home in Grand Rapids.

Ernest Johnson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Dwight Johnson, was born in Chippewa township, January 20, 1877 where he lived until nine years ago, moving with his parents to Union township and later to Coldwater where he lived until his last illness.

He was united in marriage April 12, 1919 to Lydia St. John.  To this union was born a son, Cethal Thayer.

Last winter he was taken with influenza which left him in a weakened condition from which he never recovered.  About ten weeks ago he came to Mt. Pleasant to stay with his parents where he could have better medical attention.  He was soon after taken to his bed where he patiently suffered intense pain and in spite of every available attention, steadily grew weaker.  He passed away June 15, at the age of 23 years, 4 months and 26 days.

He leaves to mourn their loss a wife and son, mother, father, five sisters and five brothers, besides a host of other relatives and friends.
