Biography - Clarence Wyeth

Clarence L. Wyeth, the only son of Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Wyeth, was born in Tuscola July 27, 1860 and died September 7, 1897. His boyhood days were passed in this city and on his father's farm he developed into manhood. In 1882 he was united in marriage to Miss Lizzie Atwell, of Atwood. Seven children were the result of this union, who together with the wife have suffered such an irreparable loss.
Mr. Wyeth was one of the best financial managers in the county. He possessed remarkable sagacity and his great brain force would have been felt in commercial centers had he been thrown among the foremost financiers of the country. At the time of his death he was probably worth one hundred thousand dollars, and the future with all of its possibilities and opportunities was before him.
