Obituary

PASSUMPSIC
Death of John McGill

The funeral service of Dea. John McGill, who died last Friday, was held on Sunday at one o'clock at the church. A large number were present to pay their last respects to a man who for many years has lived among them, and who held the esteem of all both as a man and a Christian. He was very earnest and devoted in his Christian life and a liberal giver for the support of the church and the extension of Christ's kingdom. John McGill was born in Scotland, but came to this country when a young man, and for a number of years has resided in this community. He outlived his wife by only about two months, and it is a somewhat singular circumstance that he, having sold his place, had agreed to give possession of it only a day or two before he died. Two sons, Frank C., of Passumpsic, and William J., of East Barnet survive him.
