SCOTTVILLE,Mich - Jan 5 - Again death has entered the ranks of the Civil war veterans, taking Albert Richard Nash, known throughout the community as "Uncle Dick" Nash.

Mr. Nash, who was 82 years of age, had been able to be about all winter and had been on the streets a day or two before his passing.

Passes Away Suddenly

For a few days he had complained of pains about his head. Tuesday morning as his wife was about to leave the house on an errand, she went to the couch on which he was resting and, as she spoke to him, she noticed the peculiar condition of his eyes. She at once summoned help but he passed away with without regaining conciousness.

Albert Richard Nash was born in Bronson, Mich, Nov 8, 1844. He served with Co. E., 9th Michigan Calvary, from 1862-1865.

In 1884 he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Robinson at Bridgman, Mich.

To them were born three children, Mable, now Mrs. Smith of Fountain; Ray Nash of South Custer and one child dying in infancy.

Came to County 30 Years Ago

Thirty years ago the family came to Mason County where Mr. Nash homesteaded a farm in south Custer. Eight years ago they moved to Scottville, where they purchased a home on Second street.

Besides his widow, son and daughter, there are a number of grandchildren and one half-sister, Mrs. Peter Baldwin of South Haven.

Mr. Nash was a member of S.D. Haight post, G.A.R., of Scottville. He was a faithful attendant and will be greatly missed by his brothers in the organization.

Funeral will be held at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon from the Evangelical church. Rev. R.J. Lautner will be in charge. The G.A.R. service will also be held at the church.
