John Albee, one of the oldest settlers of the town of Rudolph, died on Friday of last week from the effects of paralytic stroke, which he suffered last September. Mr. Albee was 73 years of age, having been born on the 16th day of Jan., 1830, at Windsor in the state of Maine. While he had been comparatively helpless since last September, he was enjoying his usual health up to within a few minutes of his death. His wife hand just put him to bed that night, about nine o'clock, and a few minutes afterward he was dead. Mr. Albee came to Wood county in 1856, and being an engineer and millwright he assisted in building and afterward in operating the Clark & Scott mill in Rudolph. He has also worked in other mills in this vicinity since that time, and always led an active and industrious life. He was widely known all about this section, especially to the old settlers. He is survived by his wife, who resides in the town of Rudolph, and a stepson, W. A. Johnson, of this city. He has also a sister and brother living in Maine, they being Mrs. Ellen Perkins and Benjamin Albee. The funeral was held on Monday from the Episcopal church in this city and a large concourse of people followed the remains to their last resting place.
