JOHN E. JUILLERAT was
born in Switzerland June 23rd, 1843, and departed this life at his
late home in this city, May 7th, 1905, aged 61 years, 10 months and 8
days. Though suddenly stricken by
paralysis and the messenger of death came in just a few hours, yet it was not
unexpected by him, for he had arranged all his business matters and personally
arranged with the undertaker relative to his funeral.
He was the son of Mr. and
Mrs. Emanuel Juillerat, who were of the Presbyterian faith and while in
Switzerland were the only Protestant family in the canton where they resided.
He came to this country in 1849, taking up his residence first in Wayne
county, Ohio, then in Allen county, and later went to the southern part of the
state where in 1867 he was united in marriage to Catherine Petitory.
To this union three children were born, Mrs. John Kwis and Edward A.
Juileratt (sic), of Green Tp., and Clarence Juillerat of the grocery firm of
Juillerat & Suman of this city. His
first wife having died, he was again married in 1897 to Celia Girod.
To this union two children were born, Earnest and Ida.
About 21 years ago Mr.
Juillerat moved to Greene township, this county, where he became a leading and
successful farmer and stock raiser.
Some four years ago he left the farm and moved to this city.
By his industry, economy and honesty, he was able to succeed financially
and was at the time of his death worth about $35,000.
His ear was never deaf to the cry of the needy and those who were
helpless were his special care. By
his death this city of Portland has lost one of its best citizens, his children
an indulgent and loving father, and his wife a kind and faithful husband.
