    The subject of this sketch, Silas H. Crandall, who died at Milton, Wis., on April 10th, 1884, was born at Montville, Conn., February 3d, 1821. His father, Henry B. Crandall, moved in an early day to Alfred, N. Y., and from there, still westward, he removed to Milton, Wisconsin, where he became one of the earliest settlers of Rock county. 'Uncle Henry,' ripe in years, but young in his Saviour, still lives beloved by all who know him.
    The deceased, Silas H., leaves a widow and nine children, of whom it can be truly said, 'they dwelt together in unity,' the whole family being deeply attached to one another, the children ever exhibiting an obedient love and lofty regard for their parents. The widow, children and many relatives have occasion to mourn the loss of a kind, indulgent father and husband, a christian man of honest report, whom we trust has gone to meet his Lord in peace. B.
