Horton, Melville L. (16 Feb. 1884- 30 Nov. 1921)

** In the original obit it is printed Dec. 30, for date of death, should be Nov. 30, 1921** Just pointing out an error.

Melville L. Horton died at 4:30 a.m., Wednesday morning, *Dec. 30, at his home in the town of Levis. For several years his health had been poor, as he suffered from asthma and other complications. He was born in the town of Levis Feb. 16, 1884, and was therefore 37 years, 9 months and 14 days old at his death. He had lived all his life in Levis except some time spent in Montana and North Dakota, where he went in search of a climate more favorable to his health.

He was married June 1, 1906, to Miss Leone Biermann, who survives him; he leaves two children, Ralph, aged 14 years and Alice aged 13. He is also survived by his aged father, C.M. Horton, two brothers, Victor and William, all of the town of Levis and one sister, Mrs. Claude Schilling, of Altoona. Deceased was a man of upright principles, a good citizen, a kind husband and father. He suffered much from ill health an d was unable to carry out his plans in life and do the work he wished to do because of this illness; but he was a patient sufferer and did all that his strength would permit. The funeral will be held at Dells Dam church.
