Wicker, James H. (13 APR 1869 - 11 APR 1927)

James Howard Wicker, a former resident of Colby, Wis., was called to the Great Beyond Monday, April 11, 1927, at Parrish, Wis., Bright's disease being the cause of his departure. The remains were taken to Colby and funeral services were held at the M. E. Church, Wednesday afternoon, Rev. Hanscom officiating, and interment made in the Colby Cemetery.

The deceased was born in Tarrytown, N.Y., April 13, 1869, and went west to Iowa at the age of three. He moved to the town of Hull, Marathon, Co., Wis. in 1874, when his father homesteaded some land, but ten years later the family moved to Colby. He was married to Effie E. Lamont Jan. 13, 1889, but his wife preceded him in death in 1920. He purchased his father's homestead and farmed for a time, but afterwards moved to town and engaged in the hotel and livery business. He moved to Parrish, Wis. about thirteen years ago. He was buried on his 58th birthday.

His departure is mourned by three sons: James, White Lake, Wis., Howard, Jr., Parrish, and Donald, Seebridge Field, Mich. Also by a brother and sister, Mrs. C. E. Enright, White Bear, Minn., and E. L. Wicker, Colby.

Those here from out of town for the funeral were the deceased's three sons, Mrs. Enright, White Bear, Minn., Mrs. Tom Patterson, Fifield, Wis., and Wm. Lamont, Athens.

He was a man of excellent habits, fine moral character, sturdy constitution and his sunny disposition won for him many friends who extend sympathy to the surviving relatives.
