Mineral Point, Wisconsin
Death of Parley Eaton. It becomes our unpleasant duty to record the death of Parley Eaton, Esq. of this city. He closed his eyes in death at his residence, at 10 o'clock on Friday evening, April 13th, after a painful illness of about six weeks.
Mr. Eaton was one of the old settlers of this place, he having been a resident for near 25 years, during which time he had been one of our best and most useful citizens.
Those who know him best, most fully appreciate his sterling integrity, unyielding honesty. His frankness of expression and love of truth found a reward in his own heart. As a husband, father and neighbor, his kindness of heart had few superiors, and his loss will long be felt by a very large circle. His age was 69. Mineral Point Weekly Tribune April 17, 1860
