Darling, Solon (23 Feb 1845 - 27 Feb 1909)

The sad news reached here Saturday forenoon that Solon Darling, formerly a well known resident here (Neillsville, Clark County) had committed suicide by shooting himself at the home of his son-in-law, Geo. A. Ure in Lynn, caused, it is believed by long continued ill health. Deceased lived for several years west of Neillsville on what is known as the Robert McCalvy place. He was a prominent man in logging business and took an active part in the operation on Black River. Later he went to Spring Valley, where he continued in timber work until a few years ago. After his wife’s death he has lived most of the time with his daughter, Mrs. Ure. At the time of his death he was sixty-four years and four days old.

He leaves here and at Spring Valley a host of friends who mourn his death. The remains were taken to Spring Valley Tuesday, where his son Mel Darling resides and the funeral was held there Tuesday.
