Canadice - At 7 o’clock this morning our neighborhood was startled by the sad news that Harlow Colegrove, a farmer, had suddenly died at his home half a mile from the head of Hemlock Lake, at 6 o’clock from apoplexy.
While at breakfast yesterday (Sunday) morning he was taken with vomiting and suffered considerable pain. Dr. Knickerbocker was called who decided that he was threatened with a shock and all measures were taken to prevent the fatal malady. Later in the day Dr. Skinner of Wayland was called and a council held, but death could not be diverted.
Mr. Colegrove was 76 years of age and had lived in this town the most of his life, was an industrious and successful farmer, a highly respected citizen and a kind and obliging neighbor and will be greatly missed in this community.
He leaves a wife, four sons and one daughter: Charles, Orrin and Elmer E. of Canadice, and Jotham and Mrs. Charles Curtis of Springwater.
Canadice - Harlow C. Colegrove, one of the old residents of the section, died at the family homestead just north of the line between the townships of Springwater and Canadice, and about two miles north of Springwater village, at an early hour Monday morning.
Although he had been in poor health for two weeks, he had been about the house all the time and until within twenty-four hours of his death was not considered seriously ill. Sunday, however, his condition suddenly changed for the worse, and physicians were unable to do anything for him.
A widow, one daughter, and four sons, Oren, Charles and Elmer, of Canadice, and Jotham, of Springwater, survive.
