      "Thomas Skelton, who for forty years had been a resident of Constantine, died at his home in this village, Thursday, July 7,1898, of heart disease; aged 79 years, 5 months and 11 days.  He was born in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, England, Jan, 26, 1819, and came to America in 1856, coming to Constantine in the same year.  In 1856, he was married to Susan Steears Pickering, who with seven children, five daughters and two sons, survive him.  Mr. Skelton's long residence here gave him a wide acquaintance, and his familiar figure was known to all. The funeral was held from his late residence, on Saturday afternoon, Rev. Pinchard officiating.
