The body of William R. Bufton, bachelor, residing three miles northwest of the village of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.) in the town of Hixon, was found lying on the floor of his home, Saturday morning by neighbors who had called. He died following a heart attack several hours before, according to a report of the attending doctor.

William Bufton was born at Paris Corners, Wis., Feb. 17, 1872, and died Friday, March 20th. Thirty years ago he moved to Withee, and settled on his farm where he was residing at the time of his death. He was an industrious farmer, and among his neighbors he was considered a true friend. In recent years he had served as a town officer.

Funeral services were conducted from the Congregational Church, on Sunday afternoon, Rev. W.P. Powell officiating. The body was shipped that evening to Silver Lake, Wis., for burial.

Mr. Bufton is survived by his mother, who lives at Kenosha, and four sisters, Mrs. Elizabeth Swanson, Manmoth, Ore., Rose, Kenosha, Alice, Spokane, Wash., and Mrs. Elsie Hammerstrom, Billings, Mont., and three brothers, Ray, Silver Lake, and Roy of Wilmot, and Clyde of Kenosha, Wis. His father and one brother preceded him in death several years ago.
