Boullion, Mathias (29 APR 1847 - 3 NOV 1923)
Mathias Boullion died suddenly last Saturday afternoon about five o'clock, while at work cleaning up around the buildings and hauling away rubbish, on his farm west of here (Humbird, Clark County, Wis.) He was in his usual good health and the summons came without warning.
Mr. Boullion was a native of Germany, born at Steinberg, April 29th, 1847, being 76 years old at the time of his death. He came with the family to America in the fall of 1866, locating first at Chicago. The next spring they moved to Waukesha Co., and in 1868 moved to this vicinity, he taking up the land on which he resided until about twelve years ago. Mr. Boullion was united in marriage with Miss Susan Schlichter of the town of Cleveland, Jackson Co. on May 15, 1882. For the past twelve years their home has been on the farm where he passed away. Seven children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Boullion, all of whom, with their mother, survive. The children are Mrs. Margaret Young, whose home is in Oregon, Mrs. Mayme Erickson of St. Paul, Mrs. Gertrude Melcher, Henry, John, William and Alfred, all residing in this vicinity. Deceased is also survived by one brother, Nicholas of this village, and one sister, Mrs. Helen Sckabo, whose home is in South Dakota.
Funeral services were held at St. Joseph's Church, Fairview, Tuesday morning, and burial was made in the cemetery at the church.
Thus passes from his earthly labors an industrious farmer, an exemplary citizen, a kind husband and father. The world is better for his having lived in it.
