La Fleur, Cyril P. (6 MAY 1824 - 31 MAR 1907)

One of the oldest residents of Clark County, Mr. Cyril P. La Fleur, died at his home in the town of Weston, March 31, 1907. He was born in the province of Quebec, Canada, May 6, 1824; was married to Eunice Hewett, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sheldon B. Hewett, in Jun 1852. They came to Clark County in 1869; after living a year in Neillsville they moved out to Hewettville, taking charge of the hotel there for James Hewett, remaining there five years. In 1875 they settled on their present farm. He is survived by his wife; two sons and two daughters. The son, George La Fleur, lives in Oregon and Will resides on the home farm; one daughter, Ella, wife of John Clark, lives in Oregon, and the other daughter Alice, Mrs. Eugene Mack, resides in Minneapolis. A son, Barry died about seven years ago. Mr. La Fleur was considered by all who knew him to be a good citizen and a good man. He had, when younger, held positions of honor and trust in his town, and had done well his part in opening up the wilderness of Clark County to cultivation. The funeral which was largely attended, was held at Christie, on Tuesday, Rev. W.T. Hendren officiating.
