ROBERT NOLTON LAID TO REST. FUNERAL FOR PIONEER HELD ON THURSDAY: INTERMENT IN CITY CEMETERY.  Robert C Nolton passed away at the Montevideo hospital on Tuesday after being ill for only a few days and was laid to rest in the city cemetery following services at the home Thursday afternoon.  Rev Nelson of Minneapolis officiated.  Mrs. A. L. Thulin sang a solo.  Pallbearers were Andrew Weber, Peter Tebben, R. F. Kirschbaum, Christ Kirschbaum, George Barber and L. D. Hilton.  the death of Rob Nolton takes from the community one of its fine old pioneers, a gentleman of the old school who held steadfast to its ideals and principals.  While the modern generation take to its motor cars, Rob and wife preferred the horse and buggy and continued to use this one mode of transportation they had become so used to through the many years.  For more than 50 years the Noltons have lived on the same farm in Minnesota Falls township.  Always friendly and always willing to do his share, then a little more, the death of Robert Nolton takes from this community a fine citizen.  Robert C Nolton was born in Rome New York in 1856 and in 1876 was united in marriage to Anna Jane Day.  In 1884 they moved to Minnesota Falls and lived on the same farm for 51 years.  To this couple six children were born, namely, Charles and Mary deceasedm Mrs. Clara Gatchell of near this city, Lonzo Nolton, living on the home farm, Mrs Lura Garbusch of this city and George W Nolton of Sioux City, Iowa.  Besides the children, his wife , 16 grand children and 6 great grandchildren survive.
