    Maxson Crandall was born in Allegany county, New York, December 15, 1827, and died at the home of his grandsons, George and Eslie Maxson, in this village Saturday night, April 22, 1916, aged about seventy-nine years and four months.
    Mr. Crandall had been in poor health for some months and for some time had hardly been able to leave his room. Saturday night about eleven o'clock the boys went to his room and found him sleeping quietly and then left him for the night. When they went to his room early in the morning they found that his spirit had been borne by the death angel into the great beyond - to the God whom he loved and trusted.
    In 1846 he was united in marriage to Elizabeth Lilly, who preceded him to the better land about ten years ago.
    Of their children there are left two boys, Silas and George, both of whom live in Minnesota.
    In 1850 the family moved to Wisconsin, living in different parts of the state for a number of years when they moved to Minnesota. In 1879 they came to this place, and here both he and his wife lived till death called them home.
    When he was about sixteen years of age he was converted and became a member of the 1st Alfred, New York, Seventh-day Baptist church. He was a member of the church of his faith in Wisconsin and in Minnesota and when he moved here he transferred his membership to the church in our village.
    While living in Minnesota he was ordained a deacon of the church and acted in his official capacity in the North Loup church till the weight of years forced him to give up the work.
    Deacon Crandall has gone, we knew him well, knew his many good qualities, his weakness, knew him as a kind sympathizing friend, a splendid neighbor, and we remember his earnest testimonies as we heard his voice in prayer meeting, and now we shall see him no more but we can ever cherish the memory of a good man.
    Funeral services were held at the church Monday afternoon conducted by pastor Shaw. - Rev. Geo. B. Shaw.
