Gone from Thurman

Susan Kenyon, wife of Isaac P. Trotter, died Dec. 28, 1912 at her home in Cresco, Iowa. The deceased was born in Thurman Dec. 1, 1836 and her early life was spent in that town where she married John Farmham, who was a Union soldier and died in the Civil War.

Later on, Mrs. Farmham was a resident of Wevertown where she made her home with her sister, Mrs. C.W. Noble. In Nov. 1872 she was married to Mr. Trotter and went to live in Cresco where she remained until her death. She was the sister of Henry B. Kenyon and Nathaniel Kenyon. The deceased was a woman of rare virtues and ability and was highly respected by all who knew her.

Working in the woods

Lumbermen in Athol have their logs and pulp wood all cut and skidded and are now waiting for the snow to come.

Gailon Swanson of Knowelhurst, while at work rolling hemlock logs for Wilbur Perkins at West Stony Creek, got caught under a log on the skid way and had one leg broken below the knee. One bone was broken twice and the other once. He was attended by Dr. Thompson.

Kenneth Duell of Horicon fell on the ice and cut his head quite badly. Caleb Duell, John Pratt and Stephen Baker went to The Glen to work in the lumber woods. Lyman Wood of West Stony Creek has a large force of men working on his lumber job on the J. Cabel place near Harrisburgh.
