W. H. Crenan, a respected resident of Hillsboro, this town, died at an early hour yesterday
morning from the effects of creeping paralysis, with which trouble he had suffered for several
years. Mr. Crenan was 44 years old and had spent an unusually active life, and finally his
health became broken down from overtaxed endurance. He has spent the greater part of his life in
the vicinity of Hillsboro, where his father still lives. He was an excellent business man,
qualified in all lines of work, as a thrifty farmer, a sucessful school teacher, which vocation
he followed winters for nearly 25 years; and it is said that more teachers qualified under his
instruction than usually falls to the good fortune of teachers. In his dealings he was honest and
fair with his fellowmen, all of whom respect his memory.
He had been married twice, his first wife was the eldest daughter of Henry Halstead. His second
marriage was with Mrs. Belle Craig, second daughter of the late James Lambie. By his 1st wife he
leaves one daughter, Miss Mame Crenan, and by his 2d marriage are five children who, with the
devoted wife, his feeble father and mother and sister, Mrs. William Claxton, who resides in the
west, are left to mourn the loss of a beloved husband, father, son and brother. To each and all
our sympathies are extended.
Funeral will be held at Thomas Crenan's Sunday, 1 p.m. and be conducted with Masonic honors. He
was a member of Philanthropic Lodge 164, and from time to time had served among its corps of
CRENAN - In this town, March 8, 1893, W. H. Crenan, aged 44 years and 9 months.
