A Poem for Mom
You are the sun light in my day
You are the moon I see far away
You are the tree I lean upon
You are the one that makes troubles gone
You are the one who taught me life
How to fight, and what is right
You are the words inside my song
You are my love, my life, my Mom.
You are the one who cares for me
You are the eyes that help me see
You are one who knows me best
When it's time to have fun and time to rest
You are the one who has helped me to dream
You hear my heart and hear my scream
Afraid of life, but looking for love
I'm blessed, for God sent you from above
You are my friend, my heart and my soul
You are the greatest friend I know
You are the words inside my song
You are my love, my life, my Mom

GUTHRIE HENRY M.
Called Home - On the 8th of September, 1806, Henry M. GUTHRIE, aged 9 years was called to the home above. He was living with his grandmother, Mrs Olivia YOUNG, at the old homestead in Columbia. About 6 o'clock in the afternoon on the day of his death he jade from from the house to water the horse, and was found a few moments later in an expiring condition, kicked, as all the circumstances seem to show, by the animal upon whom he was bestowing his care. He was a grand little boy, beautiful in appearance, upright in life, bright in intellect, kind and winning in all his ways. He was the life and help of the home; he and Mrs YOUNG living alone together. His mother, the daughter of Mrs. YOUNG, was called from this earth some five years ago and his father, MR. Mark GUTHRIE, having married again, the child remained with his grandmother, and beautiful and tender was the life lived between them. All the friends took knowledge of this bright and interesting boy; also of the remarkable relationship existing between him and the all-loving one who called for in the home, and when this sudden separation came, great was the shock to them all and deep was the sympathy felt by their mourning hearts. The funeral service was held at the home on Thursday the 10th inst, and was largely attended. A choir was present to sing the sweet strains of reconciling love. Beautiful flowers about the lovely casket in which reposed the silent little form, made it a vision of beauty, softening the sting of the destroying angel of death. Rev. Mr. CAMERON, of Sylvania, offered a consolatory prayer, and Rev. Emma E. BAILEY, of Troy, preached the sermon from Matt 18 10: "For I say unto you, that in heaven the angels do always behold the face of my father, which is in heaven," portraying the close and loving ways the Father has for the little ones. The form of the loving child was laid away to rest, in the beautiful Oak Hill cemetery of Troy, and thus was ended for earth this young life, but full of bright and indelible impressions upon the living friends.
"Oh ! the glories of the sunshine,
Oh ! the beauties of the wild,
But the greatest of God's wonders
Is a loving little child."

Born Nov. 28, 1886, at East Troy, he spent a large part of his life here. After finishing at the public school he worked for a number of years at the carpenter trade, then for about two years for the Elmira Arms Co., in Elmira, when, due to his father’s sickness and death, he came back to East Troy to help in keeping the home together . He was wholly unselfish and thought more of others than of himself.

On February 21, 1916, another of our most estimable citizens was claimed by death. Grant M. Jones, who was born April 17, 1862, the son of Moreau and Lydia Jones, passed from the earthly life at his late home. Mr. Jones was born her in East Troy at the old Jones homestead, and lived practically his entire life in this community. When a young man he was married to Una Joralemon, and shortly after that settled in the business of selling meat, having a market at East Troy and delivering by wagon in the village of Troy where he became well known and greatly respected. A little more than eleven years ago his wife and helpmeet died leaving him with a family of twelve children. And it may be said with the greatest truth, that he gave the full measure of devotion to the home and family thus left to his charge. And never with greater success did a father undertake the responsibility of meeting all the needs of a home. His greatest thought was the welfare of his boys and girls and to maintain a home for them where any and all might be welcome. Even during the past three or four years while his own health was gradually failing his greatest concern was not for himself but for others. In August, 1915, one daughter, Sarah was claimed by death being a victim of the white plague; the sons and daughters remaining are; Judson of Grover; Harold of Troy; Mrs. Elisha Forster of East Troy; and the following at home (which is to be maintained) Lena, Allan, Frances, Willard, Louisa, Grant, Marion and Robert whose home is with Mrs. Calkins. A brother and sister in this place John R. Jones and Mrs. John Rathbun, and a sister, Mrs. V. K. Jones of Morris, Pa. There are many others as well as the above members of his family who will feel keenly the loss of a friend. TGR 1916

He leaves eleven children – Judson of Grover; Mrs. Elisha Foster, Allan and Lena of East Troy; Harold of Troy; and Frances, Willard, Louisa, Grant, Marion and Robert of East Troy.

He was very highly respected and held a large place in the estimation of the community.

He was happy with his friends and his family circle was to him a supreme object of devotion and delight.

Smith, who officiated at the funeral service, speaking from St. John, 20:19. He was assisted by Rev. Mr. Sanford of Leona, who offered prayer and also paid a beautiful tribute to the deceased.
