Henry C. Mather
"Painful Accident. - A friend gives us the following account of one of the most melancholy accidents it has ever been our province to record. On Friday, the 16th inst., a young man, 22 years of age, by the name of Henry C. Mather, (formerly a resident of St. Clair village, at which place his parents and a large circle of friends now reside,) while working at a siding machine in one of the mills at Grand Haven, got some portion of his clothes entangled in the gearing shaft which, at the time, was making [?] revolutions per minute. Being unable to extricate himself, he was drawn down to it, and circulating with the shaft, came in contact with some other portion of the machinery, with so much force as to break his left leg at two places, bruise his right severly, break three of his ribs on the left side, and otherwise injure him very seriously. It is supposed that he revolved with the shaft some sixty times before the mill was stopped. He immediately received at the hands of his acquaintances in Grand Haven, all the aid in their power to bestow, but his injuries were of so serious a nature, that with neither kind attentions, nor the best of medical assistance, could save his life - he died on the 23d inst. His remains were brought to St. Clair for internment. By this event, we again admonish that man's hold on life is, at best but a 'rope of sand,' which the most unforeseen cause may, in an instant, snap assunder."

John McEldowney
"The members of the Methodist church were startled on Sunday evening when Rev. J. L. Gardiner announced the sudden death of Rev. John McEldowney, which occurred at the home of his son in Detroit, on Sunday morning at 4 o'clock. There were many moist eyes when the announcement was made and numerous tributes were expressed at the close of the service. Rev. John EcEldowney, D. D., was one of the best known and dearly beloved Methodist ministers in Michigan and lived to the age of 80 years. He was enjoying the best of health for one of his age until last Thursday night, and had been taking active part in revival services throughout the city, but on Friday he caught a severe cold which developed into pneumonia and he rapidly became worse. Although supernnuated last September, he kept up his life's work to the end, and only a few evenings before he conducted a revival service in a mission out Michigan avenue, beyond the city limits. Deceased was a man liked by all who knew him and was know here as "the grand old man." He preached here from the fall of 1892 to the fall of 1897 and St. Clair people were very unwilling to give him up then, but five years was the limit of a minister's stay at that time. From here he went to Detroit, where he preached until last fall when he was superannuated at his own request. Dr. McEldowney was born in Ireland, Jan. 7, 1834, and come with his father to this country when 6 years of age. His father was engaged in educational work, and he inherited studious habits, graduating from the University of Pennsylvania in 1846. He was converted in early life and admitted to full connection as a preacher in the Wesleyan Methodist church at Pittsburg, Pa., in 1846 and has been continuously engaged in active service ever since, being a preacher nearly 60 years. In 1849, the same year that he graduated from the university. Dr. McEldowney married Miss Catherine J. Kimes, of Baltimore, Md. A summary of his work in Michigan during the past 37 years will give an excellent idea of not only the active interest he has taken in the cause of Methodism., but of the love and respect in which he was held by all who ever came in contact with him. Here are a few dated; >From 1867 to 1870, Professor at Albion college; from 1870 to 1873, pastor of the old Lafayette street M. E. church, now called the Tabernacle; from 1873 to 1877, pastor of the Court street church at Flint; from 1877 to 1879, pastor at Salt Lake City, where he located to be near his friend Sumner Howard, who was United States district attorney in the city; 1879 to 1881, pastor of the Jefferson street church at Saginaw; 1881, to 1883, pastor of the Washington avenue church at Bay City; 1883 to 1887, presiding elder of the Detroit district; 1887 to 1892, pastor of the First M. E. church in Port Huron, and from 1892 unto 1897, pastor of the St. Clair M. E. church. From St. Clair he went to Detroit and took the pastorate of the Ashbury M. E. church, which he held until last September, when he was superannuated at the age of 79 years. Nevertheless he has conducted services nearly every week since that time and his last service was at a mission church in Detroit on February 23. the deceased had been frequently honored by his Methodist brethren, having been selected frequently as a delegate to the general conference, and was at the time of his death treasurer of the corporate conference which office he had held for many years. The funeral was under the direction of Rev. Dawe, and took place Tuesday afternoon. A short private service at the home on Koch avenue was followed by public services at 2 o'clock at the Central M. E. church. Besides his widow, Dr. McEldowney is survived by a son, Frederick K. McEldowney, who is with the State Mutual Life Insurance Co., of Detroit. He has two other children, but his daughter Mary died when but 16 years old and his daughter Sadie, wife of Alfred Bunclark of Detroit, died 27 years ago. Mrs. Henry VanTassel, of Thompsonville, his grand-daughter, and the daughter of Mrs. Bunclark, was brought up in the McEldowney's home. William Dawe, of Detroit, an intimate friend of Dr. McEldowney, who at the latter's request expressed last Friday, when he first realized that the end was approaching took entire charge of the preparations for the funeral, has the following to say regarding the deceased. "There are noble saints in this conference, some of whom spend their lives in obscure places; but the man who could be conceded the pre eminent place for culture and pure life would be the late bishop Ninde. If any man in Michigan Methodism could be seated beside the noble bishop without criticism from any one that man is our departed brother, John McEldowney." Dr. McEldowney's last service in this city was at the funeral of the late Hon. J. R. Whiting, on February 3, 1903, when he conducted the service, assisted by Rev. J. L. Gardiner. He was held in the highest esteem by Mr. Whiting who expressed the wish that he conduct his funeral service."

Mrs. M. McElroy
"Mrs. M. McElroy, whose death occurred Thursday, July 21, 1892, was born in Philadelphia, Pa., 56 years ago. In 1854 she was married to Jacob McElroy, a brother of Hon. C. McElroy, of this city, and soon after moved to the state of Alabama where they lived until her health failed when she with her husband and five children came north again, settling at New Baltimore. In the year 1871 they moved to Marine City where in March, 1879, they celebrated their silver wedding. Mr. McElroy died soon after. In August of the same year the widow moved to St. Clair where she has resided ever since. Frail in body yet of a persevering and energetic nature her life was prolonged much beyond the expectations of her friends. During her residence in this city until within the past year and a half she successfully carried on the furniture and undertaking business. During these years of business she served with delicacy and appropriateness at a large number of funerals. Her manner was of that quiet and retiring kind that wins friends at every point. In February 1891 she was attacked with the grippe from which she never fully recovered. In the spring of the same year she went to Detroit for treatment but after a year had passed and becoming satisfied that there was no help for her she asked to be returned to St. Clair. She was brought here several weeks ago and her daughter, son and his wife and loving friends did all they could to make her remaining days comfortable. She was a member of the Congregational church of this city and her funeral took place last Saturday afternoon from the church, Rev. W. B. Millard officiating, and the remains laid away in the city cemetery. The example of perseverance and industry as illustrated in the life and character of Mrs. McElroy is one which could be followed by all with profit."

[extract]...Until Monday, John McMorran, a Michigan native who was born June 19, 1889, was the nation's oldest man. He died in Lakeland, Fla. McMorran, who moved to Florida in 1973 when he was 84, was the fourth-oldest person in the world. Family members said McMorran considered coffee his elixir and quit cigars at age 97. He briefly held the title of the nation's oldest person, but researchers confirmed Mary Christian of San Pablo, Calif., was born June 12, 1889, according to the California-based Gerontology Research Group, a nonprofit collection of volunteer demographers. The oldest person in the world is 115-year-old Kamato Hongo of Japan. She was born Sept. 16, 1887, according to the research group. Bob McMorran said last year that his grandfather's first paying job was as a farmhand. "He worked daylight to dusk for a dollar a day, plus two meals," he said. About 1910, he hopped a freight train "and went hoboing," his grandson said. "He went out West; I don't know where." In 1913, he married Matie Leader of Capac, who was three years older. The newlyweds moved to Detroit, where their only child, Robert John McMorran, was born in 1920. Leader died in 1964, less than a year after their 50th anniversary. John McMorran's eyesight failed in his final years, and people needed to shout for him to hear them. Otherwise, relatives said, he enjoyed good health until last week, when he was taken to Lakeland Regional Medical Center for complications related to pneumonia. "He was never sick," a 35-year-old great-granddaughter, Lisa Saxton, told The Ledger of Lakeland. "He lived a great life. Obviously, he was well put together. He smoked cigars, drank beer and ate greasy food. He was an amazing man."

A fortnight before his death he suffered a third stroke, from which he never rallied, and remained in a coma, being conscious but part of the time,. Previous to that he had been able to be about, but with some difficulty. Mr. Millikin was in business in St. Clair perhaps longer than any other citizen in the city' history, and for 45 years was in the same location as in 1925, when it became necessary to sell the business, owing to his illness. Deceased was born July 11, 1848, at New Castle, Ont., and when he was two years old his parents moved to a farm near Courtright, Ont., later going to Dawn Mills, Ont. - Came Here in 1870 - In 1870 Mr. Millikin moved to St. Clair and took charge of the drug section of Col. Henry Whiting's general store. Two years later, in partnership with George W. Barnard, he purchased the drug business of Colonel Whiting, they being as associated together for two years when Mr. Millikin purchased hi partner's interest. Mr. Bernard going west. Mr. Millikin later added a grocery stock and twice suffered a loss by fire, in the Henry Jenks building in which he was located so long but each time met financial loss with a new determination to advance and each time opened a new and better store and when he sold out in 1925, had a combined drug and grocery store that was a credit to the city. - Prominent in Masonic Circles - Mr. Millikine had always been very active and prominent in fraternal matters as well as active in civic and church affairs. For 52 years he was a member of Evergreen Lodge F. & A. M., and the last public gathering he attended was the 76th anniversary of St. Clair chapter R. A. M., when he was a guest of honor and was given a past high priest jewel. Eight years ago he was awarded a life membership jewel by Evergreen Lodge. For some five years he served as Master of Evergreen lodge and for several terms was Grand High Priest of St. Clair chapter, R. A. M. He was also a Post Worthy Patron of Cornell chapter, O. E. S., and a charter member of Palmer lodge, Knights of Pythias, passing through all the chairs. For over 50 years he was a member of the Methodist church, being a member of its official board most of this time, and for many years a member of its board of trustees. He was also interested in civic affairs and starting with the office of recorder in 1878, served his city in official capacities. Five children were born to this union, one dying in infancy. Those surviving are W. Leslie Millikin and Miss Helen B. Billikin, both at home, and Maurice H. Millikin, Miami, Fla., and Mrs. Thos. C.

Wright, acted as pall-bearers. Services at the grave were conducted by Evergreen Masonic lodge of which he was so long a member. The high esteem in which Mr. Millikin was held in civic, fraternal and church affairs as well as a legion of friends, was attested by the many floral tributes that filled the room in which reposed his remains, including special pieces from the lodges he so long served in official capacities. - Eulogy By Mr. Jenks - A history of St. Clair county, its history and its people, published by William Lee Jenks, in 1912, has among other things to say of the late departed, Thomas J. Millikin, the following excerpts: 'It is an axiom, demonstrated by human experience, that industry is the keynote of prosperity. Success comes not to the man who idly waits, but to the faithful toiler whose work is characterized by sleepless vigilance and cheerful celerity, and it was by such means that Thomas J. Millikin, prominent druggist and grocer of St. Clair has forged to the front and won an honored place among the substantial citizens of the city and country. He is widely and favorably known as a man of high character, and for a number of years his influence in the community has been marked and salutory. He has been identified with the business interest of St. Clair since 1870, and there are only two firms in the place which antedate his. These and Gorge J. Ward and Strauss & Sons.

Emily Moore
"Last Monday afternoon the wires brought to the friends of Mrs. Franklin Moore the unwelcome news of her death, which occurred at Castle, N. Y., at about three o'clock of that afternoon. The cause of her death was a complication of troubles which had probably been undermining her health for a number of years without being suspected until a few months ago either by herself or her friends. Even then her condition was not regarded as so serious as the outcome proved, but after a severe attack of palpitation of the heart which occurred about four weeks ago she was induced to apply for admission to Dr. Greene's Sanitarium at Castile, where it was helped what her health and strength might again be built up. She arrived there on Saturday, June 4, and was immediately put into the care of the physicians and nurses who during her stay gave her the most devoted attention, but all to no avail. After about two weeks at the Sanitarium, as she showed no signs of permanent improvement, Mr. Moore was advised by Dr. Greene that in case she rallied sufficiently to be able to travel it would be best to make preparations to take her home. With this object in view he went to Castile last Saturday and remained with her until the time of her death, which occurred suddenly and painlessly, the immediate cause being heart failure. After a short service at the Sanitarium, conducted by the pastor of the Presbyterian church, the sad journey homeward was begun and the remains were met by sympathizing trends on their arrival at St. Clair on Tuesday morning. The funeral services will be held at the late residence this afternoon at two o'clock. The maiden name of Mrs. Moore was Emily Sprague Parmelee and she was born June 20, 1847, at Chesterfield, Fulton Co., O. When she was five years of age her parents moved to Toledo where her childhood and early womanhood were spent. She was educated in the public schools of that city and at Mount Holyoke College at South Hadley, Mass."

Leata Pearl Moore
"Miss Leata Pearl Moore, a lovely example of a Christian life, peacefully passed away, as one entering a quiet sleep, on Thursday morning at ten o’clock after an illness of several months with tuberculosis. Miss Moore was the youngest daughter of Alderman and Mrs. Thomas Moore and was born at Fort Gratiot on June 10, 1883. In July, 1895, she moved to Saint Clair with her parents where she resided until her death. Leata had never been a robust girl and at the age of thirteen years she was forced to leave school on account of ill health. After leaving school she commenced to improve but last spring that dread disease, consumption, gained a foot hold upon her system and for the past ten weeks she had been confined to her bed. But through all her illness she never murmured. She bore her affliction with wonderful fortitude, placing her trust wholly in her Savior. She was always a worker in the church, but it was not until October, 1899, that she joined the Methodist church. She served several terms as the head of the Mercy and Help department of the Epworth League and made many calls upon the sick, poor and suffering; always leaving a bouquet of flowers or some delicacy along with a cheering smile for the sick. She also took an active part in the Junior League work and several of the little ones who were too small to look into the casket were lifted so that they could have a last look at their teacher whom they all loved. While confined to her bed she did not forget the sick and often when a Leaguer would call she would offer some of the many flowers that were sent her to them to be taken to others who were confined to their home by illness. By all these kind acts she will be greatly missed by a host of friends. The funeral was held from the Methodist church on Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock when the last sad rites were performed by Rev. James L. Gardiner. It was indeed a beautifully impressive sermon. Mr. Gardner said in part: 'I am sure I voice the sentiment of you all when I say that Leata shall be greatly missed. She has been taken away in the prime of young womanhood taken away when everything seemed bidding her stay—her home, her friends, the community, the church. But God, my friends, never makes any mistake. If we had had our way she would have stayed with us these many years. We do not understand, nor do we attempt to explain why she had to go; but we can trust God, who doeth all things well. Not now but in the coming years, It may be in the distant land, We’ll read the meaning of our tears, And there, up there, we’ll understand. In speaking of the characteristics of the departed I would say that she lived an exemplary Christian life, yet she never made a parade of religion but as we all should do, she made religion speak and shine in all her actions. It might be truly said of her "She hath done what she could;" and because of this fact, though we speak of her as being dead yet we believe she still lives and speaks. "She being dead yet speaketh." 'I would say too, that Leata was of a cheerful disposition. She had little of the sad and much of sunshine in her nature, we noticed this especially during her long illness, we visited her many times during this period and yet we never heard her murmur or complain. She always greeted her visitors with a smile and bade them a cheerful good bye and we always came from her sick room strengthened and helped, because we had seen a disciple of Christ manifest such patience and endurance, under the most trying circumstances. She was always grateful for any kindness shown her. "Sometimes, when we are ill or when things do not go well with us, we forget to say thank you." She never forgot. If a friend sent her some flowers she did not fail to show her appreciation, if an Epworth Leaguer sat by her bed side and read her some beautiful story or if her pastor called and quoted to her some comforting passages from the Holy Scriptures she never failed to say "thank you." Leata too was an unselfish girl, even during her last days her first thoughts were not of self but of others. She was devoted to the church of her choice. If ever we did hear her sigh during her long illness it was not because of physical suffering but because she was deprived on the Sabbath of the privilege of attending divine worship. She died a triumphant Christian death. Shortly before the end came she expressed her great confidence in Christ and assured us that though she passed through the Valley and the Shadow of Death she would fear no evil. In this faith and hope we bade her farewell and are long the angel of God came and comfortably rocked her to sleep.' "Asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep From which none ever wake to weep." "Not dead but sleeping: was vividly suggested to many persons, with tearstained eyes, as they looked upon the remains as they lay in the snowy casket in front of the altar. That she was held in high esteem by her many friends was shown by the beautiful and numerous floral offerings which profusely covered the casket. Among the floral tributes was a piece from her sisters with the sword "sister" on it; another beautiful one from her parents in the shape of an arch surmounted by a white dove; the Epworth League's design was in the form of a Maltese cross, the emblem of Epworth League, with the letters "E" and "L" on either side of the cross; a very pretty offering of roses from the flinch club; and dozens of other floral offerings in roses and carnations. They seemed to take away the chilliness of death and she certainly looked like one at rest. The church was filled even to the gallery by those who had gathered to show their last respects to the deceased. The remains were in charge of Undertaker Thompson. Of Port Huron, who is an intimate friend of the family, and were laid to rest in the city cemetery. A father, mother, brother and three sisters are left of a devoted family circle. The Republican unites in sympathy with the many friends of Mr. Moore and family in their sad bereavement."

Olive Moore
"The death of Mrs. Reuben Rice Moore on the morning of the 18th of July added another to the long list of sad events which have occurred in this city during the present year. Mrs. Moore had been confined to her bed only about two weeks, but her disease proved at the last to be tuberculosis of the bowels of somewhat long standing. The fact that neither her friends or her physician knew that such a condition existed made them continually hopeful of a favorable outcome of the disease, but when on Sunday noon Dr. Burtless discovered alarming symptoms and realized that he had done all in his power for her, he summoned Dr. Walker from Detroit, and this gentleman corroborated his view of the case; but all medical assistance was in vain. At this time her father and brother were sent for, her mother and two sisters having been with her for two weeks. A number of other sympathizing relatives and friends were present at the funeral services, which took place at her late residence Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Rolph Duff, who was assisted by Rev. Campbell of Toledo, Ohio, pastor of the church of which Mrs. Moore was a member. Mrs. Moore, whose maiden name was Olive Parmelee, was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Parmelee of Toledo, O. She was born on August 6, 1872, and spent nearly all her life in her birthplace, where she was educated in the public schools, and later became a teacher in the Manual Training Department. She proved herself so capable in this line that when in the fall of 1896 Muskegon established a Manual Training School, she was appointed head of the department, and continued to teach there until the holidays 1897, when she retired in order to prepare for her marriage. She was married on the 31st of last March to Reuben Rice Moore, whom she had known since early childhood, and no wedding was crowned with brighter auspices than theirs. Their three months of home keeping together was blessed with perfect happiness until illness overtook the young wife. But the stricken husband and family have the consolation of a blessed memory and a hope of meeting again one whose Christian faith was strong and whose life was pure, true, and unselfish at all times. Her love for music was a source of great joy to herself and her beautiful voice was a never-failing pleasure to her friends, whom she was always willing to gratify, with entire disregard of her own desires and feelings. Her cheerful, brave disposition was an inspiration to all with whom she came in contact, and although apparently she was cut off from a life of happiness and usefulness, her example and influence cannot fail to live and do good among all those who knew her. Those present at the funeral from out of town were Dr. M. H. Parmelee, Mrs. and Mrs. H. C. Sprague and Miss Sprague, Misses Elizabeth and Helen Maclaren, Miss Margaret Ainsworth, Miss Ruth Griffin, and Miss Gertrude and Agnes Hardy, of Toledo, O; Mrs. W. K. Smith and Miss Jessie Smith, of Chicago; Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Chambers, of Cleveland' George W. Sanborn, of Hamilton, Ont., Mr. and Mrs. H. P Davock and Mr. and Mrs. Charles L. Raymond, of Detroit; Mrs. C. F. Harrington, of Port Huron; f. H.. Jerome, of Saginaw, and Mr. and Mrs. Church and Mr. and Mrs. Wilmot and son, of Chagrin Falls, Ohio."

Elliott Moran
[front page headline] Man Shoots Wife, Then Takes Own Life - Children See Father Fire Fatal Shots - Tragedy Follows Attempted Reconciliation Of Former Deckerville Couple; Jealousy Blamed - Before the frightened eyes of his two little children, Elliott Moran, 50, formerly of Deckerville, this noon shot himself to death in a rooming house at 2412 Upton street, and probably fatally wounded his wife as she knelt before him, pleading that her life be spared. Mrs. Moran is now in the Emergency hospital fighting for her life, and her two small children are being cared for by the same kindly woman who gave them shelter a week ago. Today's suicide and attempted murder is the result of the age old story of family discord, jealousy and then death. Moran came to Port Huron from Detroit, where he went after separating from his wife near Deckerville, with the destruction in his heart. He succeeded in one of his mad aims and before the day closes the death of his wife may be charged up against the dead man. - Left Sanilac Farm - About three months ago the Morans lived on a farm near Deckerville. They could not agree. Taking his three sons by a former wife, now dead, Moran left for Detroit and Mrs. Moran came to Port Huron with her two children, a girl six and a boy four. A week ago Mrs. Moran and her two children went to the home of Mrs. Sam Koneswitch, 2412 Upton street, whom she had known in former days. Mrs. Moran was destitute. Mrs. Koneswitch was crowded for room. 'What can I do. I have no place to go with my children. Elliott has sent me no money. I am penniless,' said Mrs. Moran. The heart of Mrs. Koneswitch opened to the friendless woman and her children and she took them in. Thursday afternoon Moran came to Port Huron from Detroit. He went to see his wife at the rooming house. They talked for several minutes. Between gasps as she lay in a crumpled heap on a bed with her life blood ebbing away, Mrs. Moran informed a Times-Herald reporter that Thursday afternoon she and Moran had practically agreed to become reconciled. Moran asked her if she would answer some questions, and she said she would gladly answer any question he might ask her. Moran left the house and said he would return today. - Shoots as Wife Pleads - At noon today Moran returned to the rooming house and going into the two rooms occupied by his wife and her two children they talked for a few minutes. 'I am going to give you this,' explained Moran as he drew a revolver from his overcoat pocket. She begged of him not to shoot. The two little children cowered in a corner, not realizing that a tragedy was about to be enacted. There was a pistol shot and Mrs. Moran fell to the floor in a crumpled heap, a bullet wound in her abdomen. - Then Slays Himself - A few seconds later there was another pistol shot and Moran fell to the floor blood streaming from his right temple. A bullet had crashed through his brain. When other people in the house opened the door of the room the two little children were bending over their mother. 'Papa shot mama and then shot himself,' said the older of the two. While waiting for Falk's ambulance to arrive the two children clung to their mother imploring her not to die. Pointing to the still and crumpled form on the floor with the death dealing weapon still clasped in his right hand, the elder of the two children said: 'That's papa. He's dead. But my mama is not going to die, is she?' - Woman May Live - Mrs. Moran was taken to the Emergency hospital where Dr. T. H. Cooper was waiting to perform an operation if necessary. An examination by the physician showed that the bullet had apparently struck a rib which deflected its course. An X-ray examination will be made this afternoon to locate the bullet. This afternoon Dr. Cooper stated that the woman had a good chance to survive the effects of the wound, unless complications set in. Moran was a carpenter by trade, and stated recently to friends that he was about to begin divorce proceedings against his wife. Mrs. Moran had been married previously."

At the age of 20 years he joined the 8th Michigan Cavalry and entered the service in defense of his country.

At the end of this time he was exchanged and came home badly broken down in health and the sufferings thus endured made him more or less an invalid for the balance of his life. After the close of the war he served in various public positions among them as clerk of the House of Representatives for one year and Engrossing clerk of the Senate for two years. The duties of these offices he performed very acceptable. In the year 1869 he was married to Miss Sarah Saph who died May 23, 1892. Five children were born to them, four of whom are left to mourn his death. Three years ago Mr. and Mrs. Morse joined the Congregational church of this city and at the time of his death Mr. Morse was a trustee of the society and clerk of the church. The deceased directed the building of the hotel at Grande Pointe and was manager of the same for some time. Later on he occupied positions of steward and manager of the Oakland and Somerville springs hotels respectively and made many friends by his attentions to the welfare and comforts of thousands of guests. He was a member of Miles Post G. A. R. and of Palmer Lodge No 20, Knights of Pythias of this city and was buried by the latter organization in the city cemetery Sunday morning. A detachment from Sanborn Post G. A. R., of Port Huron, accompanied by a portion of Miles Post of this city attended the services which were held in the Congregational church, Rev. W. B. Millard officiating. In the death of Mr. Morse, St. Clair loses a good citizen, his children a loving and devoted father, his parents a dutiful son and the church an earnest, conscientious, Christian man. In this connection the family desire to return their heartfelt thanks to the neighbors and friends, the Knights of Pythias and all who so willingly and freely rendered assistance. These acts of kindness and manifestations of sympathy are appreciated more than tongue can express."
