Another Pioneer
Of County Is Dead;
Lived at Vanderbilt

Albert House died at his home in Vanderbilt, Thursday Night, November 22, at about ten o'clock following an illness, which covered a period of about two years.

Nearly two years ago it was discovered that a cancer was working in his left lower jaw. While every effort was made thru medical care and operations at different times to destroy the dreadful disease, it was of no avail. At times he suffered untold agonies, but thru it all he was ever most kind and patient to those who had the care of him, and made little or no complaint of the ravishing pains and onslaught of the diesaes, until a few weeks ago when he became so much worse that he was kept to his bed most of the time until the end came to his blessed relief.

Mr. House was born July 9th, 1865, at a little place then known as Elk Creek near Brown City in Sanilac County. He was the 4th youngest of the eight children of Daniel and Kathern Snell House, who were formerly of Canada.

He grew to manhood in and around Sanilac County and on October 28, 1888 was united in marriage to Miss Joanna Barrett of Detroit. To this union there were born four children, three girls and one son, all of whom survive.

His wife Joanna died November 2, 1908.

In the fall of 1892, he and his family came to Vanderbilt. He has since resided in or on a farm a few miles from the village, with the exception of about eighteen months spent near New Berry.

In Dec. of 1911, he was married to Mrs. Stella Whitmarsh, and to this union one child was born. When the child was about two years old the mother died, and Mr. House was again alone.

In December of 1917, he was again married to Mrs. Grace Sawyer and since that time he has lived in the village.

Mr. House was well known and respected by all who know him. He was kind and congenial to those whom he came in contact with, and was ever a husband and father, leaving to mourn their loss, besides his widow, five children, Mrs. John Spreeman and Mrs. Frank Sehl of Vanderbilt, also Miss Carrie, Mrs. John Bakrud of Detroit and James House of Lansing and sister, Mrs. Ida Epsey of Lincoln, Michigan.

He was laid to rest in the Vanderbilt cemetery, Rev. Herbert officiating.
