I This list includes the names of Hon. M. H. Goodrich, an ex-President of this society, and also an ex-President of the State Pioneer Society, the Hon. C. H. Richmond, treasurer of this society, and Randolph Rogers, the distinguished sculptor, an early resident of Ann Arbor, who departed this life at Rome, Italy, the 15th of Jan., at the age of 66 years. Judge Thomas Ninde, of Ypsilanti, alsb with many more noble men and women who helped to make Washtenaw County what she is, have finished their labors and are at rest, leaving as a rich legacy to us who still remain the memory of pure and spotless lives, devoted to the work of upbuilding every good cause. Their labors have made the wilderness to bud and blossom as the rose, the desert wild where they made their early home a veritable garden of the Lord. Their lives so true, so beautiful, so good, call to us to emulate their virtues and follow their example, and thus to keep green their memory in all the days to come. To Mr. Morrel Goodrich, of Dexter, Mr. A. H. Hotchkin, of Saline, I am indebted for many names in this list of pioneers who have deceased during this year. Their kindness and care have enabled me to make it much fuller than otherwise would have been possible. I desire to thank them personally as well as in the name of the society for their thoughtfulness and diligence in gathering and reporting the names to me.
