    FROM THE DIAMOND DRILL DATED 22 AUG 1908

    Captain Isaac Williams, one of the pioneer mining men of the Menominee range, expired suddenly of a hemorrhage last Wednesday at the noon hour.
    Captain Williams had not been feeling well for several weeks and has been under the care of a physician since his return from Minnesota last spring.
    He came down from his home about eleven o'clock and visited with his friends for some time when, learning that his son, Nick, had returned from Washington he started up the street. When about a block from the house a hemorrhage attacked him and blood flowed freely. Irving Jackson and son, Gordon, met him and assisted him to the door where the blood began to gush heavily and his son Nick met him and carried him into the house. He placed him on the sofa when he breathed his last.
    Captain Williams was known all over the Menominee range as having sunk the sand shaft at the Aragon mine many years ago.
    Captain Williams was born in St. Austell, Cornwall, England on the 17th day of September, 1853, making him 50 years of age. He was married in his native land in 1871 to Mary A. Goodge and came to America in 1876, coming at once to the then wilderness on the Menominee range and located first at Quinnesec where he followed his chosen vocation of mining. From Quinnesec Mr. Williams went to Norway where he became well known as the man who sank the Aragon shaft. Later on he went to British Columbia where he remained ten years returning to the Menominee range to take the position of mining captain at the Michigan mine for the Oliver Mining company. From Amasa Captain Williams came to Crystal Falls where he has resided about six years.
    Five children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Williams, one of them being dead. The living are Nick, Isaac, Jr. and James, Mrs. Jas. Woodward and Miss Mabel.
    The funeral occured today under the auspices of the Maccabees to which order Captain Williams belonged.
    Captain Williams leaves, besides a widow and his five children, two brothers, Absolem, of Iron Mountain, who was present at the funeral and another brother in Colorado.
