Notes for Alonso MCCLELLAN: The newspaper obit read; Alonzo McClallen died in Hartland, Huron county, Ohio, February 17th 1904 after a lingering illness of over 1 year; he braved his sickness with hope of recovery until his disease fully convinced him and his family of his nearness unto death. Calmly and heroically he resigned himself to his Savior's love. He expressed his willingness to go, and be delivered of his suffering. He passed away at 5:30 p. m. on the 17th day of February 1904 in peace and quiet. He was the third son of Henry & Mary McClallen. He was born in Willingford Vermont, May 9th 1844. He came to Ohio with his parents when three years old, and grew to manhood in and about this vicinity. He leaves a wife, three daughters and one son to morn the loss of a fond husband and father. He buried one daughter in infancy. He lived to see his family all grow up and happily settled in life then departed this life for a better one. The writer of this recieved a letter from him a few days previous to his death, and he said "God is my strength and my life, in him will I trust." Thus a wife and four daughters, and one son and eleven grandchildren mourn his loss. He was a kind husband, a loving father and respected by all who knew him.

Dearest husband you have left me, And my heart is sad tonight. Of that I again could see you, All my dreams could be so bright. Father, dearest, thou has left us, And with thee our joys have fled. Oh! 'tis hard to think our father, Good and kind and true, is dead. CARD OF THANKS.
