C. M. Pepin was born in Detroit, Mich., on the 9th day of June, 1840, and died Nov. 11, 1913. His parents moved to Rockford, Ill., in 1843 and then to Minneapolis. At the age of 16, he, with his parents came to New Oregon, Howard county. Iowa. Here he followed the trade of a printer until at the age of 22 years he enlisted with his three brothers, Sylvanus, Abner and Frank, in the 38th Iowa Infantry. He was mustered out Aug. 27th, 1865, and then re-enlisted in the U. S. regular army, serving the full term of five years.
After his discharge he returned to his home in New Oregon where he remained for a number of years. He then went to New Hampton, Iowa, for several years and from there to Plainview, Minn., there for 20 years he lived a quiet secluded life.
On the first of March, 1913, he came back to his old home, Cresco, to live with his cousin, L. E. Strawn, where after many days of suffering he passed away. Everything that could possibly be done to keep him with us was done, but it was his wish to pass on rather than to remain and suffer.
He leaves one sister, Mrs. Rachel Curtis of Plainview, Minn., and two brothers, Abner of Fredericksburg, Iowa, and Frank of Monticello, Iowa, and several other relatives.
The funeral services were conducted from the residence of L. E. Strawn by the Rev. Benj. W. Soper and the interment was made in New Oregon cemetery.
