On Sunday evening the 6th of February, at twenty-five minutes past six o'clock, Mr. Antoine Dishnow, one of our most respected citizens, closed his connection with all things on earth, and passed to that land from which no traveler returns. Mr. Dishnow was born in St. Johns, Canada, March 10th, 1840, and was consequently in the forty-first year of his age at the time of his death. When five years of age he removed with his parents to Essex county, N.Y., and remained there until 1859, when he went to Addison, Vermont, as an employe (sic) of one Jas. Goff, with whom he lived until Sept. 16th, 1862, when he enlisted for nine months in the 14th regiment, Vt. volunteers, company I, Capt. S. T. Alien. He remained in the army after the expiration of his term of enlistment, and received the wound, from the effects of which he died, in the battle of Gettysburg, July 3rd, 1863. He was taken to a hospital, where he was confined by his wound until discharged from the army, Sept, 5th, 1863, when he returned to his New York home. He was married to Miss Sarah La Moore, of Essex county N. Y., Nov. 13th, 1868, and moved to Champion, Mich., in April, 1872, where he resided until the following August, when he removed to Michigamme, at which place he resided up to the time of his death. He has ever been recognized as one of Michigamme's most upright and honorable citizens. Ever a friend to the oppressed, and a man of sterling worth, he counted his friends by the number who knew him. He leaves a wife and four children who mourn the loss of one of the kindest, most affectionate of husbands, the most indulgent and loving of fathers. His suffering upon a bed of sickness where he laid only one week and two days, was extreme, but was borne with truly christian patience and fortitude.
