Death Takes Toll

Charles Wesley Woodbury Passes to the Dreamless Sleep Monday Morning.
Was Town's Oldest Resident

Oddly Unconventional and Alert Mentality, He was Very Peculiar Person.

Early Monday morning there passed from "beyond the flaming ramparts of the world" a man who for many years has been a peculiar figure in the life and annals of this town -- Charles Wesley Woodbury -- at the ripe age of 85 years and about six months.

Deceased was among the town's very early settlers, coming to Franklin in the year 1885 with his wife and family. Mr Woodbury purchased the little farm on which he has since resided. At first he engaged in the creamery and cheese manufacturing business on a small scale, but later abandoned this and devoted his time, before he became infirm, to chicken raising.

Mr. Woodbury's social and religious ideas were strangely unconventional and he took great joy in exploiting them for the sake of controversy. He was a man of fine mental attainments and a student of philosophy, pursuing his studies in his large library up to a very short time before the end came. He was extremely punctual and honorable in the discharge of business obligations and his long abstenance from tobacco and intoxicants is probably one of the secrets of his longevity.

Deceased was born at Salem, NH Jan. 22, 1823. On July 5, 1846 he was married to Martha Gardner, who died several months ago. In August, 1854 he came to Minnesota, settling at Eden Prarie and from there moved to Sibley, Sibley County; coming finally to Franklin in 1885.

Seven children were born to the union, five of whom are living. Chas. E. of Sebastopol, Cal., David W. of Kalispel, Mont. Benjamin H. of Marietta, Martha A. Bundy and Bessie G. Erikson of Franklin.

The funeral was held from the home of the deceased on Tuesday afternoon. The remains were intered in the Camp Cemetery.
