> years of age has resided in Ticonderoga. Being the only and for twenty one
> years the only son of a family of eight children he was cherished with a
> love that was akin to worship, but
> never for a moment did he forget his filial tenderness and brotherly
> respect. An industrious carpenter, he was always
> faithful to his employers; a genial, whole souled fellow, he was beloved
> by
> a large circle of friends.
> His last and only illness, typhoid fever, was contracted while on a
> hunting
> trip in the Adirondacks. After a six months' siege the fever had broken
> and
> the patient was decidedly on the gain, when congestion of the lungs set in
> and, though the family worked over him until the last, his lungs filled
> rapidly and he quietly passed away at 10:20 o'clock Friday evening.
> The funeral services were held at his home on South Main St., Monday
> mornng,
> Rev. W. H. Mousley officiating. A
> large concourse of relatives and friends, together with the three
> companies
> of the fire department, followed the remains
> to the grave.
