  • ObituaryText: Monday morning, August 16, there passed from our midst an old citizen of the Hemet and San Jacinto valleys. George Harrison Richmond was born in 1842, and a member of a family of ten children. When a child, they moved to Wisconsin. His early manhood was spent in Iowa, where he married Eldora Lane. Four children, two boys and two girls, were born to this union. The two surviving, Miss Clara Rickmond and Miss N.J. Ofstad, are left to mourn his loss. In 1882 they moved to San Bernadino county, Calif. and in 1889 to the Hemet valley. For many years Mr. Richmond was assessor of the Diamond Valley district.
    Since the death of Mrs. Richmond December 1916, Mr. Richmond has been very frail. Always cheerful and patient through it all, he endeared himself the last six weeks, especially to the many friends who called and ministered in every way to him. Though often in much pain his active mind was clear to the end, and with thoughtful forethought he planned every detail that would make his going easier for the bereaved ones.
    His deathbed was a benediction. The glory of heaven shown upon his face as he peacefully slipped away to meet his savior face to face and greet his loved ones. Services at the house and cemeteyr were in charge of Rev. F. A. Leak, assisted by Rev. Bear, both of whom in loving tenderness were a comfort to friends and relatives. By his firends "Brother Richmond" was characterized as tender in his love an honest and conscientious--A friend who will be missed.2

During her young days and until it was impossible for her to get around, she did everything within her power to cheer, comfort and aid those who were sick, weary and in distress. She never willingly passed by an opportunity to help a friend in need. It is because of her sympathetic kind hearted and esteemable disposition and her willingness to promote the interest of her community and fellow citizens that the entire village of Wells was veiled in mourning as a result of the passing of this dear woman whose life was one of love, sweetness and goodness, which "in her person shone."

In the fall of 1875, they moved to Wells and have resided here since with the exception of one year spent on a farm and one year in Austin. To this happy union were born three children, two of whom survive with their father, Marshall B. Babcock, to mourn the loss of this devoted wife and mother. They are Mrs. Edna Rickard, of Mankato, who was present at the funeral services, and Earl Babcock, of Kittson county, unable to attend. One daughter, Inez, preceded her mother in death at the age of sixteen. Two brothers W.B. Richmond of Windom, this state and E.D. Richmond of Proberta, California , and one sister, Mrs. Geo. Greene, of Mora, this state, together with several nieces and nephews are also surviving relatives.
    Mrs. Babcock was a faithful and earnest worker in the Episcopal church, Women's Relief Corps and the Womens Christian Temperance Union, all of which she was a member. Beautiful flower offerings were presented by the various organizations and friends. The Forum Advocate joins with the entire community in extending their utmost sympathy to the bereaved in this time of grief and sorrow.2

    And to know a crown awaits when I enter those gates.
    Oh the joy to be a Christian, of the joy to know the Lord,
    Oh the joy to seek and find Him, in the riches of His word.
    Oh the joy to know that Jesus has a manion over there,
    And some day bye Grace I'll enter and His glories I will share.
    Oh what joy to be a Christian and to know that here below,
    He can use me as a channel through which living waters flow.
    Oh the joy to be of service, as this pilgrimage I trod.
    Oh the joy to lead another on the pathway home to God.
    I'm so glad I am a Christian; I'm so glad I am His own.
    I'm so glad that each day brings u, one step nearer Heaven, my home.
    Oh the joy to know that with Him, In glory I shall be.
    And with the ransomed millions, I will with Christ eternally be.5

  • ObituaryText: In Cuyler, N.Y. Oct 23d, 1865, Mr. Roswell Richmond, aged 78 years and 5 months. Bro. Richmond was a faithful and efficient member of the Seventh Day Baptist Church in Cuyler, from the time of its organization until he was called by death to join the church triumphant in heaven. He was quiet and unassuming in his habits of life, but earnest in spirit, practical and persevering; useful in society, respected as a citizen and greated beloved by his family and the church. He was married twice but both of his companions have passed on before him to the spirit world. By his first wife (Thankful Wells, eldest daughter of Matthew Wells Sr. of DeRuyter) he leaves a family of sons and daughters, who are bereaved of an exemplary Christian parent and are deprived of the counsel of a wise and loving father. He was conscious of approaching dissolution and met death with composure, expressing a desire to be with Jesus. A funeral service was held in the Seventh day Baptist church in DeRuyter village when a sermon was preached by the writer from 1 Peter1:24.3

  • ObituaryText: Death Angel takes Civil War Veteran. Commander F. D. Drake died on Thursday evening of last week. A pall of sadness was cast over this community last Friday when the sad news was spread thru the village that the venerable F.D. Drake had passed away during the night, death coming at 10:05 p.m. Thursday evening. There is no language at our command by which we can fittingly portray the sincerity of this man's Christian character; of his true and undivided loyalty to God and country. He commanded the respect of all sect and classes of people as the attendance at his funeral fully verified. How sadly they will miss him, these human ties cannot be severed with a pang, yet in such a death there is no cause for grief, for his work was done and well done. Francis Dewitt Drake was born at Cortland, N.Y., on the second day of November, 1833, a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Drake. He grew to manhood in New York state and going from there he found employment in Wisconsin. On the twelfth day of September 1861, he enlisted for three years, as a wagoner in the 16th Wisconsin Infantry. He served in the Civil war until the expiration of his term when he re-enlisted and served until the end of the war. He served under Grant in the army of Tennessee. He has a perfect record as a soldier, serving his country as best he knew how. After his service in the Civil War he returned to Wisconsin and in 1867 he decided to come to Minnesota and settled on a farm in Freeborn townships, Freeborn county. He was very successful as a farmer and in the year 1896 he was able to retire. He then chose New Richland as his future home and has resided at this place up to the time of his death. Mr. Drake was married two times. In 1858 he was married to his first wife, Miss Alma Richmond and in 1902 he was united in marriage to Ada L. Crumb. Besides his wife, he leaves a brother, Ferdinand Drake, and the following children to mourn his death: Mrs. Wright of Delta, Colo; Mrs. Severson of Berthold, N.D; Mrs. Howe of Alden; Mrs. Richmond of Mill Iron. Mont; Mrs. Finch of Wheaton. N.D; and John and Chas. Drake of this vicinity. He is also survived by 24 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. A son, Lincoln Drake, and an infant daughter precede him to the Great Beyond. He was at the time of his death a member of the First Congregational church of Freeborn. Mr. Drake was commander of local Lincoln Post No. 26, G.A. R., and his few remaining comrades of the G.A.R. paid their respects at his funeral which was held Sunday at 12 o'clock at the home here. members of Andrew Borgen Post, No. 75, of the American Legion, acted as pall bearers, and 20 members of the post in uniform escorted the funeral cortege to the village limits. Services were also held at the First Congregational church at Freeborn and interment was made in the church cemetery at that place. The floral offerings surpassed in beauty anything seen here before. On a card appended could appropriately have been placed these words: "these flowers mutely speak the pathos of a parting word, and placed upon the casket by those who loved the blessed sleeper. On these petals are tears for the parting, and hopes for a meeting beyong [sic] the gates."2
