John Hurley, one of the old settlers of Washington township who resided near Fort Atkinson, died on the 29th ult. after an illness of three weeks’ duration,—a lung trouble. Mr. Hurley was seventy years of age and had resided in this county for more than forty years. He was a member of Cope-Stone Lodge No. 316, A. F. & A. M., of Calmar. The funeral took place on the 31st ult. under the auspices of the Masonic fraternity, represented mostly by the Calmar and Waucoma lodges. The ladies of the order of the Eastern Star of Waucoma also added impressiveness to the occasion by joining, as a body, in the procession. The religious services were conducted by Rev. C. A. Parkin at deceased’s late residence and at the church at Waucoma. The interment took place at the Waucoma cemetery. Mr. Hurley was an honest, conscienscious and worthy man, a zealous Mason, a kind husband and indulgent father. He will be much missed by his bereaved family, and his old neighbors will often have occasion to say “we shall not see his like again."
Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows he was born July 29, 1828; however it shows he died Oct. 26.
