    William Henry Crandall was born March 14, 1836, and died February 27, 1913.

    Rather a remarkable incident took place in regard to these two lives. The people of the community of Petersburg were shocked on the morning of the twenty-eighth when they learned that these lifelong residents of the town had both passed away within a few hours of each other. At 11:30 the night of the twenty-seventh Mr. Crandall passed away while his wife was in an unconscious condition. Before becoming conscious at 2:00 the next morning her soul took its flight to be again united with the one who had so shortly preceded her.

    Mr. and Mrs. Crandall were from the Seventh-day Baptist stock which composed the old Petersburg Church. His father was David Crandall. Her parents were Hezekiah Coon and Jane Holmes. Mr. Crandall leaves two sisters, - Lorancy Greene, the widow of David K. Greene of Berlin, and Cinderella Davis of Janesville, Wis. Mrs. Crandall leaves one sister, Nellie, an invalid. Mr. and Mrs. Crandall were married December 30, 1859. To this union, an only son, Edward Hezekiah, was born, who survives the parents. Mr. and Mrs. Crandall never saw their way to unite with the church, yet they were always closely affiliated with the Seventh-day Baptist people and always kept the Sabbath. They were highly respected by their townspeople and the advice of Mr. Crandall was eagerly sought by many a person when in doubt.

    The funeral services were held at the home, March 2, in the presence of a large company of friends. The services were conducted by the pastor of the Berlin Seventh-day Baptist Church, assisted by Rev. Mr. Davies and Rev. Mr. Manning of Petersburg.
