Photocopied from an old newspaper clipping scrapbook of my great grandmothers. I don't have originals and they aren't available to me, and I don't know from were they came, other than my family is from Lapeer County. Sorry!
Hope this is helpful to someone.


Was Sitting in a Chair When the End Came

The funeral of the late Daniel F Zuhlke, Judge of Probate, whose death occured Tuesday, was held Friday and was one of the largest ever held here. The remains were in state at the M.E. church for two hours and many viewed the face of their friend. Though his demise was not unexpected, it was learned with profound regret by his many friends throughout Lapeer county. He was a victim of cancer of the stomach, and made a long and heroic fight against the insidious malady but as was evident to those familiar with his condition, his determined struggle, aided by all that medical skill could do, could but temporarily stay the inevitable. The Judge was seated in a chair when the end came, while his faithful wife was doing the chamber work. Mr. Zuhlke was born in Berlin, Germany 51 years ago, and came to America when a boy of 12. When about 25 years of age he was maried to Miss Minnie Weyer. As a resident of Imlay City he was elected supervisor for two terms and also county treasurer, which office he served two terms, and four years ago he was elected to the probate judgeship. He is survived by his widow and six children, Moses, Amos, Arthur, Alice, Richard and Maitland. Burial was made at Imlay City. The Lapeer County Board of Supervisors attended in a body. He was a member of the Masonic, Odd Fellow, Maccabee and Forester fraternities and a member of the M.E. church.
