C.C. PRICE, NEARLY 87, DIES IN WASHINGTON
Old Resident Pioneer, Born at Price's Corners on M-14, Remains Were Brought Here
Word from Washington, D.C., on Wednesday night of last week told of the passing of Christopher Columbus Price, a native and a resident of this vicinity for nearly 80 years, and that the remains would arrive here on Saturday evening, accompanied by his sister-in-law, Mrs. Etta Coe and her son-in-law, Damon Spencer, of Washington.
On the arrival the remains were taken to the Hess Funeral Home, where the funeral services were conducted Sunday at 2 p.m., there being in attendance, in addition to the relatives from a distance and from Nashville and vicinity, a number of the friends of his of his youth who have survived him, and those who had known him in later years.
The sermon was delivered by the Rev. M.E. Hoyt, speaking from the text, "Abide with us; forit is toward evening," Luke 24:29. Mrs. Pauline Lykins sang "Abide with me," with Miss Amy Hartwell as accompanist.
Mr. Price was laid to rest beside Mrs. Price in the mausoleum at Lakeview cemetery, and the pall bearers were Fred, Charles and Roy Brumm, Adolph Kaiser, and Roy and Fred Garlinger.
Christopher Columbus Price was born at the well known pioneer homestead, Price's Corner's, one mile north of Nashville, on April 13, 1849, and departed this life on March 6, 1935, at Washington, D.C., where he had lived for the last nine years. He was one of five of the children of Alex and Clarissa (Brown) Price, and was the last surviving member of his family, his sister's, Mrs. Alcesta S. Mallette, Mrs. Louella Bauchman and Mrs. Belle C. Marble, and his brother, Claudius, having preceeded him in death.
Mr. Price gained his fundamental instruction in a log school house, and later attended school in Nashville and Grand Rapids. He remembered seeing some of the main roads chopped out from the forest, and deer crossing fields, although the township was being rapidly developed when he was a boy.
Until he was twenty-seven years old, Mr. Price remained on his father's farm. He then bought sixty acres that comprised his home. Two-thirds of the tract had been prepared for cultivation, and an old log house stood upon it. Considerable work was required to bring the place into good condition. The present residence was built in 1877 and added to in 1888, and the barn was built in 1885.
Mr. Price was married to Ellen E. Noyes May 15, 1878, who departed this life February 2, 1925. One child, a daughter, was born to them, who died in infancy. He was intelligent, progressive, and a worthy son of an honored father. His good qualities and those of his genial companion drew around them a devoted circle who mourn their passing. The nephews and niece who survive Mr. Price are Frank Mallette of Howard City, Michigan, Lavant Price of Grand Rapids, Earl Mallette and Russell and Mable Marble of California.
Relatives and friends from other localities who attended the funeral were Mrs. Etta Coe and Damon Spencer of Washington, D.C., Mrs. Mildred Coe Gavin of Rockford, Ill., Mr. & Mrs. Orin J. Wright of Kalamazoo, and Mrs. Greta Fleming and son, William Fleming, Jr. of Battle Creek.
