Sudden Death of Hartley Gates
Stanstead, Nov. 27 - (Special) - Word was received here early yesterday that Mr. Hartley Gates, who was on the way to Florida, died while on board a train near Jacksonville, Fla. Mr. gates would have been 87 years of age in December. He was a veteran of the civil war and a long time resident of Stanstead plain.
He owned what was called the Gates block occupied by a harness shop and five tenements, one of which he occupied, and also the Mair bakery, where the big fire originated.
All of his property was destroyed by the fire.
He was very active for a man of his years and had recently purchased some land in Florida, and was intending to spend the winter there when the end came.
