Pneumonia Fatal to Veteran County Resident
Franklin P. Galpin, lifelong resident of Washtenaw county, and a member of a pioneer Washtenaw family, died yesterday at his home at Whitmore Lake at the age of 82 years. Death followed pneumonia.
Born March 17, 1853, in Superior township, he was the son of Freeman Pinckney Galpin, who came to this county with his father, Philo Galpin, in 1832. The family moved here from Monroe county in New York state, and settled in Superior township. Freeman P. Galpin was married Oct. 8, 1845, to Almira D. Pray.
Franklin P. Galpin, the third son of this union, lived on a farm in Superior township on the shore of Frains Lake until 1912, when he moved to Whitmore Lake. He was married Oct. 18, 1876, to Anna M. Carpenter, who died May 17, 1887, and he was married Nov. 20, 1888, to Emma Minehart of Superior township.
He is survived by the widow; a daughter, Mrs. Anna Lizzie Galpin Keen of Royal Oak, and a son, Frank Galpin of Gardenia, Calif., both of his first marriage; and two children, Willard C. Galpin of Pleasant Ridge, and Luella Galpin Wilson of Northville, both by his second marriage. There are also 15 grandchildren; a great-grandchild; a brother, Linus, of Plymouth; and two sisters, Mrs. Minnie Judson of Superior and Mrs. May Hazelbeck of Wayne.
Mr. Glapin was a brother of the late Morris, Philo and Willard Galpin. Two children, Lewis and Ernest Galpin, by his first marriage, also preceded him in death.
Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon at the residence in Whitmore Lake with Rev. A. P. Rickard of the Whitmore Lake Methodist church officiating. Mr. Galpin had been a member of the Methodist church for many years.
