Name TypeDateDescription
Name VariationIsaac A. Hoxie was also known as I. A.
  • Isaac A. Hoxie was born in October 1825 at Maine.
  • He was the son of Allen Hoxie and Olivia E. Sargent.
  • Isaac A. Hoxie married Sarah A. Rollins in 1850.
  • Isaac A. Hoxie married Hannah B. Cook on 1 October 1897.
  • Isaac A. Hoxie died on 24 October 1903 Isaac A. Hoxie, aged 78 years, died of heart disease at his home on First Street, Saturday morning, Oct. 24, 1903, about 9 o'clock. The deceased was born in Piscataquis county, Maine, and was the son of Allen Hoxie, a pioneer settler of this county. With the exception of a few years he has been a resident of this county since 1846. The family first settled at Cooksville, where I. A. was engaged at work in various branches of carpentering and building for a considerable time, making a speciality of the manufacture of sash, blinds and doors. He later became a resident of Stoughton, where for some time he pursued his trade and in 1864 became
    connected with the "Reporter" a newspaper of that place. Two years later in 1866 he removed to this city and established the "Review" continuing his connection with this paper until 1868 when disposing of this business he went to Cresco, Iowa, where he became proprietor of the "Times" of that place. Remaining in Iowa until 1870 he once more returned to this city and again became editor and proprietor of the "Review." For a greater number of consecutive years than any other man in Rock county in a similar position he had charge of this paper, until failing health compelled him to discontinue active work, but he has continued the printing business in a small way up to the day of his last
    sickness, for he never gave entirely up until a few days previous to his death; always active and persevering in all that he undertook. In 1850, Mr. Hoxie was united in marriage with Miss Sarah A. Rollins, a native of St. Albans, Me., and of this union was born one son, Wilbur, both of whom have preceeded him to the promised land; he was married to his present widow Mrs. Anna Cook on Oct. 1, 1897. Two widowed sisters still remain in this city, Mrs. GEo. Backenstoe and Mrs. Charles Howard.
    The funeral was largely attended in the M. E. Church Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and the remains found a last resting place in our city cemetery; Rev. James Churm officiating.

Mother*Lydia Durbin
  • Marion James Farris was born on 2 August 1863 at Wisconsin.
  • He was the son of Pierson Farris and Lydia Durbin.
  • Marion James Farris married Caroline Marie Sorg, daughter of Henry Sorg and Caroline Kruhl, on 26 October 1888.
  • Marion James Farris died on 29 August 1932 at age 69 The second son of Pierson and Lydia Farris was born in Arena Prairie, Iowa Co., Wisconsin, August 2, 1863 and died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Roy Reeve at Cassell on August 29, 1932 at the age of 69 years and 27 days. When Marion was a young man his folks moved to Badger Valley, Sauk Co., Wisconsin to the farm later known as the "Abraham Holzer Place". In October, 1886 he was united in marriage with Miss Carrie Sorg. To this union were born eight children, all of whom survive their father. They began housekeeping on the Sorg Farm
    just west of the Philip Sorg place. Thirty six years ago they moved to the Abram Pierce Farm at Cassell which they purchased from Edward
    Talbot. It is this farm that the children remember as home. Four of them were born here and the others were very young when they came to Cassell. The first great sorrow came to this home on Jan.,1906, when death entered and carried away the wife and mother. With great devotion to duty Mr. Farris kept his family together, brought them up, paid his way, and asked no odds of anyone. He lived all his life within a few miles of the place of his birth, so his neighbors had an opportunity to know him well. They remember him as a good friend and neighbor. In matters involving morals, Marion stood for what is right. He had clearly defined ideas of justice and honesty which he put into practice. He was a deeply religious man who tried to carry out the Savior. While Mr. Farris was a farmer most all his life, he found time to do other things as well. During the winter months, for years, he made axe handles. He became an expert in this work, marketing many hundred axe handles in the surrounding towns. He dearly loved the outdoor sports of fishing, hunting, fifle shooting, and baseball. He was a skilled violinist and was known all of his life for the accomplishment. In recent years. The revival of interest in what is known as "Old Time Fiddler" brought Marion into prominence. He took a large share of the honors on several contests among "old timers." He was then sought by managers of radio stations and his rendition of the "old time music" delighted thousands of listeners in our own town and neighboring states. On Monday of last week, he indulged in his favorite pastime of fishing. Returning to the Reeve home in the afternoon, exhausted by the extreme heat, he suffered a heart attack, but appeared to recover from it in the evening. The relief was only temporary and he passed away during the night while peacefully sleeping. He leaves to mourn his departure, four sons; Henry of Spring Green, Evan of Merrillan, Herbert of Roxbury,
    and Grant of Fifield; Four daughters, Bessie (Mrs. Reeve) of Cassell, Nettie (Mrs Lorenz Tarnutzer) of Paole, Pearl (Mrs. J. Accola) of Sumpter, and Esther (Mrs. John Rindle) of West Point; Two brothers; John of Spring
    Green, And David of Madison; one sister, Louie, (Mrs. Charles Nelson) of Highland; Eighteen grandchildren and many other relatives and friends. He has cone from our midst, leaving an enviable record of honesty, sobriety, neighborliness, clean living and Christian character. May his life be an inspiration to others to follow his example in living a good life. Sympathy is extended the bereaved.
