Garfield, who, on September 17, 1881, died from the effects of a shot fired by Charles Guiteau, on July 2d, the same year. Memorial services were held in Marshfield, Monday, September 26, 1881. The meeting was called to order by Rev. J. I. McCoy. A sermon was preached by Rev. E. H. Post and an address given by Rev. C. Hall.
