Granville G. Clark passed away at his home on S. Oak Street Sunday night about 1:20. As his many friends knew, Mr. Clark had not been in the best of health for some time, but his sudden demise came as a shock to his family as well as his friends. He had been ailing with diabetes and kidney trouble for some time and these were the cause of his death.

Granville Gilmore Clark was born in Schoolcraft, Mich., Feb. 18, 1850, and would have been 70 years of age next February. When a young lad, he, with his parents Mr. and Mrs. Joel Clark, came to Minnsota and settled in Sugar Loaf valley (near Lake City) where he had always resided. He was united in marriage in this city to Addie G. Hudson, Nov. 16, 1871, and she, with three sons, Roy S. of St. Paul, Harry D. of St. Paul and Guy [unreadable] of this city, are left to mourn.

Mr. Clark was one of those whole-souled men that the entire community will miss greatly. Though of late years he had retired from active labors, he, for many years, managed his farm in Mt. Pleasant township until five years ago when he disposed of it and moved to Lake City.

Services were conducted Wednesday afternoon under the auspices of the Masonic fraternity of which he was a member of all the branches in Lake City.

Those from out of the city which attended the obsequies were Mrs. T. J Hudson of Kansas City and Mrs. H. F. Hopkins of Minneapolis.

Many friends gathered at the home Wednesday afternoon to attend the funeral, which was conducted by Rev. K. B. Mounsey of St. Mark's church. Interment was made in Lakewood cemetery.

Her family and intimate friends were immediately notified and all came at once to pay their last tribute of love to her dear memory.

She was married to Granville Clark November 16, 1871, and they lived in the old Clark residence in Sugar Loaf Valley, near Lake City, until a few years ago when they moved to Lake City.
