Rev. John N. Kemp
"Rev John N. Kemp, a St. Clair county pioneer in 1852, died last evening, at the residence of his son W. R. Kemp, on Vine street, at the age of 78 years. He had been in failing health for about six months and it had been known for some six months and it had been known for some days that the end of life for him was near at hand. The funeral service will be attended at the M. E. church on Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock. With us as with others, the old settlers are annually growing less. In the recent demise of Rev. John N. Kemp another very worthy member of the ever lessening number has been summoned above, Rev. Kemp-as he was so long known-died the fifth instantly in this city. Although his last illness was brief yet he had been feeble for some time past. His funeral was largely attended at the M. E. church of which he had been a faithful and consistent member ever since he reached this section of the country with his family in the spring of 1862. He was born seventy-eight years ago in the village of Methwold, Norfolk Co., England, but was deprived of the love and care of a mother at the early age of five. This greatest of all losses for a child was, however, partially compensated by the religious instruction and consistent Christian example of a young lady which made so good an impression as to lead to his own conversion and union with the Methodist church. Soon discovering those "gifts and graces" which are sought by the church, he was licensed to exhort. Continuing to give proof of his fitness for ministerial work he was granted the higher license of a local preacher which office he was reelected to fill every year after so that he died wearing the honors of the church which he used to the glory of the Master up to the very end of his earthly life. With he wife and four children he spent six weeks crossing the Atlantic in a sailing vessel before the days of steam. Arriving on the banks of our grand river yeoman like he began to hew down the forest and build at home, all the time preaching the gospel to the people who "heard him gladly". The amount of gratuitous religious labor which he performed cannot be estimated. As opportunity offered he was employed in telling the divine story. He was also an instant in carrying message of peace and reconciliation to the house of mourning. But the time came when feebleness crept on him and though his sorrowing friends and neighbors came with tears pleading "it was Father's or Mother's last request", he had to regretfully reply "The spirit truly is ready but the flesh is weak" Mr. Kemp was endowed with strong native talents which he retained to the last. This was noticeably manifest in conversation I had with him very recently. He was clear and decided concerning the teaching of the Book and the conduct of life, still he had the tolerance of a Christly charity. A loyal Methodist, believing in the teaching of that church and living up to its requirements, he was a warm hearted Christian, with broad views and deep sympathies, a brother to everyone who loved and served the Savior. I do not know that he left behind him a single enemy. To him the Bible was no Sectarian book. It was met only the book of all books, it was also the only rule of faith and practice for all mankind. He cherished it as his father's best gift. It was his constant companion and the subject of his most frequent conversation. More that one of these sacred volumes wore out under the touch of his frequent fingers. All who knew him best, knew of his life and service for the church and the cause of religious truth, can unitedly say "Servant of God, well done". He leaves an esteemed widow and five children to mourn and wait and bide their time for that reunion that shall know no separation. His pastor, Rev. G. N. Kennedy, recited a beautiful funeral discourse and Rev. J. S. Sutton, his pastor years since, made forceful and fitting remarks at the close, relating characteristic incidents in his life with words of high appreciation." - H. C. Northrup

Alfred P. Kenyon
"DEATH TAKES A. P. KENYON - End Comes to Pioneer Shipbuilder of Marine City - Marine City, Dec. 3 - Marine City lost another of it's pioneer residents last night when A. P. Kenyon died at his home on Bridge street. His death was due to cancer of the throat and the end came after weeks of suffering. Mr. Kenyon, who was familiarly known throughout the city as "Phin," was one of the best known and most successful shipbuilders on the Great Lakes. He learned his trade when a mere youth in the then well known yards of Simon Langell at St Clair and James Davidson of Bay City. Later he purchased the shipyard of Curtis & Brainard, located on Belle River in this city, which he operated up until a few years ago when its business was taken over by son-in-law, L. T. Carfrae, and C. L. Doyle. It has been a familiar sight in the winters past to see a chain of boats lining both sides of the river from bridge to bridge, awaiting repairs at the hand of "Phin" and his men. The deceased is survived by a widow and two daughters: Mrs. Frank Christian and Mrs. L. F. Carfrae, both of Marine City. One brother, Sam Kenyon, also of this city, survives. Funeral arrangments have not as yet been completed and will be anounced later."

Almond Bruce Kenyon
"The death of Almond Bruce Kenyon which occurred Monday was a very sad blow to his surviving relatives and many young friends in and about St. Clair. His first illness dated some six weeks back with a severe attack of measles and when all supposed he was getting along so nicely, that disease so much to be dreaded, typhoid fever, gained a hold upon his already weakened constitution, and this disease defying careful medical attention, constant care and nursing by loving hands, resulted in his death. The deceased was born in town of West China, Jan. 14, 1879. He attended the city schools in St. Clair up to three years ago when he evinced a desire to become a sailor, and commenced upon his chosen work under the command of Capt. Fred Hoffman with whom he remained constantly during the three seasons. He was ever found trustworthy and faithful and was dearly loved by his shipmates. Bruce as he was familiarly know, was loved by all whether aboard his ship or ashore. He was of a kind and jovial disposition and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. To his mother and three sisters with whom he lived, is extended the deep sympathy of a community of loving friends, in this dark hour of bereavement. The funeral services will be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the M.E. church. His surviving relatives are a father, mother and three sisters."

W. O. Knapp
"There has of late been an unusual prevalence in this city and vicinity of fever of a malarial type but up to last week none of the cases had resulted fatally. Among the last to be attacked by the disease which seemed at one time to be almost an epidemic here, was W. O. Knapp, the local editor of this paper. With characteristic determination not to give up to what he hoped might prove only the threatening of disease, Mr. Knapp, although quite seriously indisposed on Sunday, November 20th persisted in continuing his work up to the following Wednesday when he was obliged to give up, and consult a physician. That he was then threatened with fever there was no question but so gradually did it make its approaches that until Sunday the 27th both himself and his friends hoped that it might be checked before it had run the usual course of such diseases. When there was no longer hope of this, arrangements were made to move him to the residence of F. Moore where Mrs. Knapp would be able to give him her undivided care and attention. His removal was successfully accomplished on the following day and from that time his devoted wife watched and tended him with a devotion which was so untiring and unselfish that it might well be considered heroic. In spite of some discouraging symptoms his case did not appear to be of a dangerous character until a few days after the three weeks when a turn in the disease is ordinarily expected. About this time he became suddenly worse and it soon became apparent that he had passed beyond the point where human skill could prove of any avail. Up to the last, however, he retained his full consciousness and on Saturday afternoon he was looking forward with great satisfaction to the arrival of his wife's brother-in-law, F. L. S Darby, of Wauseon, O., who had been summoned as soon as Mr. Knapp's condition seemed to be really dangerous. When Mr. Darby arrived that evening Mr. Knapp greeted him with a smile and a wave of the hand although he was too weak to speak, and an hour later he suddenly passed away without a struggle. During his residence in St. Clair Mr. Knapp made for himself a reputation of the most honorable character and a brief sketch of his life will doubtless be interesting to the great number here who had learned to count him not only as a good citizen but also as a true friend. He was born at Belleviue, Ohio, Sept. 11th, 1858, but when he was about two years old his parents moved to Wauseon, O., where he lived until he was of age when he returned to Bellevue, and took a position on the Local News, of that place, a paper which was conducted by an uncle. After an experience of four or five years as an employe, he determined to embark in the same business on his own responsibility and accordingly bought the Delta Avalanche, a newspaper in a neighboring town, and conducted it with very gratifying success for two years. While there he married Miss Emma L. Wade, she had been a schoolmate in Wausion and between whom the friendship of their younger days had reopened into a more tender affection and one which bound them to one another by the closest ties throughout the whole of their married life. After his successful experience at Delta, he was offered an interest in the Fulton County Tribune, a prosperous paper located at his former home, Wauseion, the county seat of the county. He retained his connection with the Tribune for about two years, but not finding the business altogether satisfactory, he disposed of his interest and for a year occupied the position of book-keeper and general salesman in a lumber yard at Wauseion. In the fall of 1889 Mr. Knapp was induced to give up this position and come to St. Clair where up to the time of his illness he was connected with the Republican, and for the last two years was almost soley responsible for its management in all its departments. As a business man Mr. Knapp possessed the most sterling qualities. His integrity was absolutely unquestioned. He was industrious, reliable, courteous and had in a marked degree the faculty of making friends, although from a natural reticence of character his best qualities were not generally manifest on short acquaintance. He lacked confidence in his ability as a writer, but when drawn out often showed that he had ability of a high order. Above all he enjoyed the esteem and respect of all who knew him and was the kind of man whose death leaves a place which it is hard to fill. While at Wauson Mr. Knapp became a member of the Knights of Pythias and was devotedly attached to the order. On coming to St. Clair he preferred not to serve his connection with the lodge to which he had become so greatly attached, but when a movement was started to organize a Uniform Rank here he entered heartily into the project and became one of the most active members of the Rank. During Mr. Knapp's illness the Knights expressed the greatest solicitude for his welfare and made frequent tenders of assistance thus exhibiting the fraternal spirit of the order in a manner which could not but be most gratifying to the relatives and friends. Funeral services were held at the residence of F. Moore on Monday afternoon at three o'clock at which Rev. W. B. Millard officiated and where a large number of the friends of the deceased gathered to express their sympathy. Mr. Millard in a few appropriate words paid a high tribute to the true worth and manly qualities of the deceased after which a large delegation from the Uniform Rank of the Knights of Pythias took charge of the remains and escorted them to the train to be borne to his former home for interment. The many expressions of sympathy touched very tenderly the feelings of the afflicted wife and prompted her to express her heartfelt appreciation of such kindness to one who was in some respects a stranger, but to whom in her affliction all have become friends. So much was added to the impressiveness of the services by the selections of music so tenderly and sweetly sung that an acknowledgement of the kindness of those who contributed it seems but a slight return. Mr. Knapp left a wife and one daughter eight years of age to mourn his loss. He had by his diligence in business accumulated a moderate competence to which will be added for the benefit of his heirs a life insurance of a thousand dollars in an Ohio company. Thus has suddenly and quietly passed from our midst one who during a three year's residence has proved an excellent citizen and has led a life which has been above reproach. - Resolution of Condolence - At a meeting of the St. Clair Division Uniform Rank K. of P., the following was unanimously adopted: In view of the inscrutable wisdom of an All Wise Providence in removing our beloved brother and exemplary fellow citizen, W. O. Knapp, therefore Resolved, That we express our high appreciation of Brother Knapp's standing and character as a men and worthy member of the Order, and tender our sincere sympathy and condolence to the bereaved family in their severe affliction, realizing that while our loss is great their loss is still greater and most difficult to be borne. Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be spread upon the records of this division, and also sent to the family of our lamented brother. - Daniel Webster, W. H. Smith, C. W. Thomson, Committee."

She loved to garden, read, travel with her husband; and once Charles passed away, she traveled with the Harsens Island Senior Citizens. Once, she went to visit her son while he lived in England and had great fun. She will be remembered for writing letters to everyone and staying in contact that way. She regularly wrote her many nieces and nephews and, in turn, they always wrote back. It was her way of staying in touch with her extended family. Mrs. Koenig was a quiet, shy woman with a strong personality. After the death of her husband, she surprised everyone and proved herself independent and able to carry on because she did not want to impose on anybody.

"Death's Doings - The Grim Reaper is Thinning Out the Ranks of the Pioneers - Michael Kronner, one of the pioneers of Columbus township, died at his late home in that township on the night of Thursday, July 28, aged 73 years. The immediate cause of his death was stomach trouble. Mr. Kronner was born near Landshut, Bavaria, June 24, 1825, where his boyhood days were spent in herding sheep in summer and attending school in winter, until he as 12 years of age. At the age of 15 he went to work as an apprentice in a flouring mill, and so thoroughtly did he apply himself to his chosen calling that in 1843 he took charge, as head miller, of a mill near Vienna, Austria, having 24 run of stone which for those days was considered a mill of unusually large capacity. He held this position until he embarked for America in 1846. On arriving in this country he went to work in the mines at Altoona, Pa., Galena, Ills., and elsewhere until the summer of 1848, when he went to Mackinaw Island, where he remain three years in the employ of Toll & Canter as manager of a grocery and general supply store. In 1851 he removed with his family to Columbus township and began the task of clearing a farm and providing for his family by working in the lumber woods in winter and clearing and working his farm in summer. In 1858 he was appointed keeper of the St. Clair county poor house, where he remained six years. He then removed to his farm in Columbus, which he occupied up to the time of his death. Mr. Kronner had held the office of treasurer of his township for two terms and had been highway commissioner for several years. In 1849 Mr. Kronner was married to Agnes Steinager, of Mackinaw, who died in the fall of 1859 leaving a family of four small children. In 1861 he was again married, this time to Elizabeth Grant, of Mt. Clemens, who died April 14, 1897. He leaves a family of six children, Edward and William, of Utah; Michael D., of Imlay City, and Henry, Andrew and Frank, who are still living in Columbus. Funeral services were held at St. Phillip's Church, Columbus, of which church deceased was a devout member on Saturday at 10 o'clock, Rev. Fr. Kilroy officiating."
