MRS. ADA GARDNER FUNERAL HELD LAST SUNDAY
The funeral of Mrs. Ada Gardner, who was found dead at her home on south Huron street, by her daughter, Mrs. Guy Thompson on last Thursday morning, just as the Democrat went to press, was held from the Thompson home on Sunday afternoon, Rev. Horning, pastor of the Congregational church in charge of the service, burial being in the Pine Hill cemetery, beside the husband and father who passed away about nine years ago.
Mrs. Gardner was born in Byron Center, Michigan, in 1860, and most of her girlhood was spent in that community. She was united in marriage to Edwin N. Gardner in Grand Rapids forty-nine years ago, residing in that city for a few years, coming to Cheboygan about forty years ago, first settling at Stony Point, Mr. Gardner being employed as sawyer in the old Whitehall mill for some time. They returned to southern Michigan for a couple of years, but the call of the north brought them back to our city where they have been counted among our most substantial citizens since.
The body was taken to the Thompson home on Thursday noon and during the time between then and the funeral hour, hosts of loving friends called to pay tribute to the memory of one whose life among us has been filled with deeds of kindness to all, a woman of fine ideals and in every way that she could serve was a volunteer, being quick to maker herself useful and helpful. She was on the dependable and hard workers in the Congregational church societies, the Woman's Club, the Rebekah Lodge and other city activities, giving liberally of her time, when her health would permit, and thhs [sic] her passing will be regretted by all who shared her acquaintance.
The display of floral offerings was the largest ever seen in the city and expressed the love and esteem in which the deceased was held among her friends and acquaintances. One daughter, Mrs. Guy Thompson and on son Theron Gardner survive, both residents of this city, four grandchildren, a brother Milo Barney of Lowell, Mich., and a sister Mrs. Louisa Brown of Grand Rapids. An older brother passing away about two months ago.
Mr. Barney, of Lowell. was present at the funeral but Mrs. Brown, who is in her 80th year was unable to be present on account of ill health.

Poled Up Grand River
-
PASSED THROUGH LOWELL IN 1833.
-
Before a House was Built in this Village.
Calkins Barney wrs [sic] born at Ypsilanti, Mich., Oct 12, 1821. At the age of 12 years he started out for himself, going to the Grand River Valley, passing through Lowell before there was a building on the present village site and assisting to raise the first frame building in Grand Rapids. He was one of the crew of the first boat on Grand river running from Grand Rapids to Iona the motive power being the strong arms of the crew using poles to to [sic] push it along. Not finding this satisfactory he took the contract of carrying the mail from Grand Rapids to Grand Haven, in the summer by river in a canoe and in winter, owing to the depth of snow and absence of roads, making the trip on snow shoes, meeting a few Indians by day and howling wolves by night.
January 1st, 1846 he was married to Marie Seeley at Otisco, settling upon a piece of land in the woods of Byron, Kent county, purchased from the government. They began clearing a farm with neighbors few and far away. Five children were born to them, the youngest Aaron S., died at the age of 18 months.
At the call of his country, Mr. Barney enlisted in company C. 10th Michigan Cavalry and served until the end of the war. In 1877 they sold their Byron home and moved to Grand Rapids; but not finding city life agreeable they, in 1879, moved to Vergennes where Mrs. Barney died February 28, 1888.
March 14, 1902, at his Vergennes home, surrounded by his children, Mrs. Louisa M. Brown of Grand Rapids, Lansford Barney of Byron township, Milo C. Barney of Lowell and Mrs. Ada E. Gardner of Cheboygan, he passed peacefully away, and was buried by Joseph Wilson Post No 87 G. A. R., of which he was an honest member, Sunday afternoon, Rev. Charles Nease officiating.
