Obituary

SUDDEN DEATH OF D. M. WATSON

David M. Watson died suddenly at his home, 61 Front Street, Monday morning, of heart failure. Mr. Watson had also suffered some time with gastritis. He went out to get some coal, and not returning, his wife sought him, and found him in a sitting posture, just expiring. Mr. Watson was almost 62 years of age, and a native of Milton. He was a carpenter by occupation, and had resided in this city for many years. He was a veteran of the Civil War, a member of the G.A.R., and the Carpenters Union.

The funeral will be held from the home on Front Street this morning, with interment in Lakeview cemetery.

Mr. Watson leaves, besides his wife, one daughter, Mrs. J. C. Flint, of this city, three sisters, Mrs. Loren Drake, of Nicholville, N. Y., Mrs. B. M. Mills, of Burlington, and Mrs. Martin Smith, of Moria, N.Y., and two brothers, William Watson, of Marcy, N.Y., and George Watson, of Charlestown, Mass.
