      EUGENE PIERSON GILLEO born 5-13-1850 - died 3-15-1930
      Eugene Pierson GILLEO died at his late home on the west side of Carson City Saturday, March 15, at the age of 79 years. Mr.Gilleo has been in failing health for a number of years. However, he was only confined to his bed for about the last week and the end came through an enfeebled heart and exhaustion due to old age.
      Mr. Gilleo had been a resident here since retiring from the farm some 15 years ago. Mr. Gilleo was born in Cayuga county, New York State on May 13 and was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Gilleo with whom he came to Michigan when a young boy. The family settled on a farm in Hillsdale county, and he grew up in that vicinity. On July 6, 1872, Mr. Gilleo was wedded to Martha Jane BALDWIN at Vickeryville. A short time after, the young couple purchased a4 0-acre tract of land in Gratiot county which was at the time almost virgin wilderness. With their own hands they cleared thel and and erected a log cabin which was their home for many years.With industry and thrift Mr. Gilleo accumulated other property and raised a family of 7 children, 3 of whom have passed into the great beyond.
      Those surviving beside the sorrowing wife are, Mrs. Georgia HERALD of Hubbardston, Mrs. Jessie CUSICK of Greenville, Mrs. Coral ACKLEY also of Greenville, and a son, Melvin GILLEO of Detroit. Two sons, Howard and Dudley, and a daughter, Mable, preceded the father in death. There are also 19 grandchildren left. Mr. Gilleo had a deep interest in music and owned several fine old violins that were his constant companions. He developed a taste for this art when only about 12 years old, but on account of a deep seated prejudice against "fiddles" in those days, when folks considered them instruments of the devil, he found it convenient to do his practicing in his father's barn. Later however, when it became apparent that this was one of his talents, he was privileged to take work under Professor YOUNK of Detroit. His love and passion for music enbraced a deep appreciation for the best and his library contains the finest compositions of the masters of classical violin music. There were few days within the past few weeks that Mr. Gilleo did not attempt to enjoy a few minutes with his beloved instruments, though the effect brought him nearly to the point of exhaustion. His funeral was held Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 from his late home with Rev. W.S. SHELLY, pastor of the Congregational church, officiating. Mrs. Wm. BARTHOLOMEW and H. J. GARLOCK sang 2 appropriate numbers. The following friends and neighbors acted as pall-bearers: George KING, Bradford THOMPSON, Frank FULTON and John REYNOLDS. Burial was in Carson City Cemetery.
