Hobart Brisco Dead

  The passing of one of the native sons of North Lyon county occurred last week, when Hobart Brisco, formerly of Allen, died.
  Hobart G. Brisco was born in Allen and lived there until manhood.  His father Richard Brisco, came to Allen when the town was platted.  He was a carpenter and builder and built some of Allen’s first homes and store buildings.  He afterward engaged in the furniture and undertaking business which he conducted for many years.  He sold out his business here and he and his son, Hobart and wife, moved to Florida.
  In Florida Hobart engaged in the fishing business and became well-to-do financially, but his health failed and he contracted tuberculosis.  He went to a sanatorium where he stayed for about 2 years until his death.
  Hobart was a young man of industrious habits and always busy at some kind of work.  His father, who was Civil War veteran, died in Florida about a year ago.
  Many of Hobart’s boyhood friends attended the funeral at the M.E. church last Wednesday, Oct. 3.
  Rev. Patton delivered a very fine sermon and the casket was covered with many flowers.  The singers were Mrs. Patton, Mrs. Layton, Mrs. Leavell and Chas. Showalter.  He was laid to rest in the Allen cemetery beside his brother, McKinley who died in a training camp in Texas during the World War.
