Shawano County Journal
Thursday, 9 Apr 1891
Old father WRIGHT passed quietly to rest on Monday night last. He came from New York to Michigan at an early day, and from there to Neenah, this state, where he and his wife lived for 30 odd years. They were both members of the Presbyterian church of Neenah, and very highly esteemed. Mrs. Wright died some 3 years ago, when Mr. W. came to Shawano and has made his home ever since with his son Noah. The funeral took place at the house of his son on yesterday at 2 p.m., Rev. J.V. Hughes officiating. This morning the body was taken to Neenah to be interred in the old cemetery beside that of his wife. Mr. Wright had been very feeble for some time, and while we express our sympathy with the friends of the family, we feel assured that their loss is his eternal gain. Mr. & Mrs. N. E. Wright desire to express their grateful acknowledgments for the many kind services rendered by neighbors and friends during the illness of their lamented parent.
