Mr. Ethan P. Sawin, aged 79 years, died at his home on S. Madison street, Saturday morning, April 18, 1903, after a long, lingering illness.

The deceased was born in Chenango county, N. Y. Came to Wisconsin with his parents in 1846, who located in Green County, entering a quarter of a section of land in section 12 in the town of Brooklyn, upon which he built a shanty into which the family numbering wife, and ten children moved and began life in a true pioneer style. The stars could be seen through the roof of the little cabin and in winter the snow drifted over the beds, but notwithstanding the hardships to be endured prosperity attended the little band of emigrants, and success crowned their efforts to that extent that in 1846-1847 a comfortable frame residence was built, the lumber being hauled from Racine.

The subject of our sketch a young pioneer then soon started out to make a home for himself which was soon accomplished but being overtaken with old age and ill health he retired from farming and moved into this city, where he has enjoyed the highest esteem of all who knew him for several years. He leaves a wife and two sons, Albert M. now engaged in business in the east and Charles who still remains at home, all of whom have a host of friends who sympathise with them in their deep affliction. The funeral was held at the home this Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Mrs. Pierce of Wonnewoc officiating.

The marriage of Albert M. Sawin and Miss Josephine Hull, both of this place, was witnessed by a large circle of invited friends and relatives of both parties, at the residence of the bride's parents, on Church street, on Tuesday evening last.
