4 "Being one of the early settlers here he did much toward building up the community, ever exerting an influence in favor of the right. The Methodist Episcopal Church in this place, of which he was a member from the time of its organization, owes a great deal to Father Counter. No one contributed more to the upbuilding and sustaining of that society than he. Here where he has lived for so many years he has ever been held in high esteem, as a worthy citizen and an exemplary member of the community - no one in the community whose loss would be more sincerely regretted. Up until a few weeks since, he had been in good health for one of his years, and his death was unexpected, as few outside of the immediate friends of the family knew of his sickness.

The funeral services were held Monday at the M.E. Church, Rev. George W. Wood, the pastor, preaching the sermon from Acts 13:36. The attendance at the funeral was large, said by old residents to have been the largest ever seen on an occasion of the kind in Belleville. Father Counter leaves five sons and three daughters to mourn his loss, his wife having died about two years since. The sons are: Charles who resides in Toledo, Ohio, Fred in Montana, Henry in Oberlin, Kansas, James in Wray, Colorado, and Theo in Belleville. The daughters are Mrs. J. C. HUMPHREY, Mrs. C. PERRY, and Mrs. A.W. LAWRENCE of Belleville. To the bereaved ones the sympathy of those who knew and loved their kind father are given".
