     Jacob Henry Millage was born in Tioga County, New York August 20 1840 and  died November 22, 1908 at Holyoke, Colorado aged 68 years 3 months and 2 days.


     At Waterloo, Iowa, in 1864, he was united in marriage with Miss Carrie Dickerson. To them were born eleven children, five of whom, four sons and one daughter,  survive them. His wife passed away May 8, 1897 at Wakonda, South Dakota.


     He married Mrs. Ida Shaw, May 31, 1898, who survives him. They resided on their  farm in South Dakota until 4 years ago last spring when they located in Phillips  County. Since then he has devoted his time to farming and stock raising on his  ranch southwest of town.


     About a year and a half ago he was taken with a cancer on his lip which he had  removed but of no avail it reappeared again. He has suffered intensely but borne  his pain patiently having undergone two severe operations.

     He is at rest after, as he said, “many wear days.


     The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Rulison assisted by Rev. Jenkins. The funeral sermon was preached from the text in James - What is your life? It  is even as a vapor that appeareth for a little time then vanisheth away.”
