"Julius Cady, father of E.O. and William Cady, died this week in Auburndale, aged 71 years. He was brought here last week from Waupaca to be with his children in his last hours and lived but a week after his journey. He was a member of the G.A.R. having belonged to the 22nd Regiment Wisconsin Volunteers and taken part in many battles during the civil war. He had an eventful life, having driven an ox team across the plains in 1848 and again in 1849 and been captured by the Indians from whom he afterwards escaped. He was a great story teller and could recount some thrilling tales of his life on the prairie and on the battlefield. His many friends here will miss him greatly. His remains were taken to Waupaca for burial, where he has lived since the war."
