Gladwin County Obituary/Death Notice
John Spence

   SPENCE --- Died in Billings, Aug. 30, John Spence, aged 35 years and 5 months. Mr. Spence was a native of Ireland. He immigrated to Canada in 1851, and from there removed to this state in 1866, and at last came to Gladwin county to seek a home for himself and family. He was at one time a member of the Methodist church, but backslid, notwithstanding which he led a very moral life. He was a loving husband and a kind father, and was highly respected by all who knew him. We believe, from his appearance while dieing, that he has gone to swell the number in the Heavenly paradise. The bereaved wife is very sad in her affliction. May she give her heart to God and secure her eternal welfare, that when the Lord calls she can say, "Welcome, death I long to see my God."
