Weed, M.D., Harry M. a skilled medical practitioner at Phelps, was born Sept. 11, 1861, at Coldwater, Mich., son of Harry and Marion (KING) WEED. The parents were natives of New York State and came west in 1851, locating at Coldwater, where the father farmed and dealt in farm lands until 1863, when he removed to Marshalltown, Ia. He died the same year, on June 24. The mother and family returned to Michigan; the mother died on Sept. 20, 1922, a the age of 90 years, making her home with her son, subject of this sketch, at the time of her death. Harry M. WEED attended the country schools at Colon, Mich., and in 1882 entered the Albion College at Albion, Mich., from which he graduated with the class of 1887. He then entered the Chicago Homeopathic Medical College, and on graduating from this institution in 1889 he opened an office in Oshkosh, Wis., where he met with fine success and remained until 1902. He next practiced at Oconto Falls, Wis., until 1912, and at Boniface, Mich., from then until 1915, in which latter year he came to Phelps and began his practice here. His skill and personality have built up a very wide practice, covering not only Phelps and adjacent territory but reaching as far as Iron River, Three Lakes, Watersmeet, Conover, and the other villages throughout this region. He has made a wonderful success, and in the territory covered by his practice first thoughts in times of sickness fly to him. Of the type to shom full confidence is given in these times of stress, he is loved by all his patients, and in fact by all who know him. He is a member of the American Institute of Homeopathy and of the State Homeopathic Society, and is health officer of his community. Fraternally he is a member of the Odd Fellows Lodge. Dr. WEED was married at Albion, Mich., on July 2, 1890, to Emma LEWIS of that city. At the time of her marriage Mrs. WEEK was principal of the Albion High School; a gracious lady, unselfish and beautiful of character, she has helped her husband and stood by him along every step of the way to the success he has achieved. Three children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. WEED: Lewis M., born July 17, 1891, who died in France, Jan. 21, 1918, in the service of his country; Linton G., born Oct. 27, 1893, now studying medicine at the University of Wisconsin; and Elvin I., born March 18, 1897, now with the Diamond Cab Co. in Chicago, Ill. The family attend the Congregational Church and stand very high in their community. Dr. WEED is a staunch Republican and is 100 percent for everything supporting American principles.
