Chadwick, Thomas (1832 - 1911)







----Source: Greenwood Gleaner 7/6/1911


Thos. Chadwick of the town of Eaton, Clark County died at his home last Thursday, June 29, 1911.

Deceased was born in New Hampshire June 15, 1832 and moved with his parents to Warrensburg, N.Y. when he was a boy, where he grew to manhood.  He was married to Roxena Vernom in 1859.

He engaged in the lumbering business in New York state in early life and came to Wisconsin for the first time in 1857, and again in 1861, when he invested in timber lands.

In 1872 he moved to Neillsville with his family and in the spring of 1873 moved to the farm where he has since lived.

He died last week as stated before, at the age of 79, from general decline and age. He leaves to mourn his loss his faithful wife and one son. One sister is till living in the state of New York.

The funeral services took place at the M. E. Church of Christie on Saturday, July 1st, Rev. W. T. Hendren, of the Presbyterian Church of Greenwood officiating, and the burial was in the Christie Cemetery. A goodly number of near relatives, with a large number of old friends and neighbors, were present to follow the remains to their last resting place, and to do with sweet songs and beautiful flowers all they could to comfort the bereaved family.

Thus do we take note of the departure from our midst of another Clark County pioneer who figure largely along the banks of Black River forty or fifty years ago.
