Mr. Harrison Grant died at his home here July 25 after weeks of intense suffering during which he was tenderly cared for by his children, Mr. and Mrs. Chester Grant.
Mr. Grant, for many years a resident of Vershire, and had he lived 'till next November would have been eighty years of age. The funeral was held at the village church Sabbath afternoon. Elder J. D. Cross preached the funeral sermon, and Rev. G. B. Drake offered prayer at the grave. The funeral arrangements were under the charge of S. B. Darling, and a quartet of singers furnished excellent selections.
Mr. Grant was a member of the G.A.R., a quiet, industrious, peaceable man, respected in the community, and beloved by his family. He has come to his grave like "a shuck of corn in its season". The large attendance at the funeral evidenced the esteem of his neighbors and friends.
A CARD -- We wish to express our sincere thanks to our neighbors and friends who so kindly assisted us during the sickness and death of our father, also, the minister and bearers, and especially the singers for their fine selections.
Mr. and Mrs. Chester Grant
Mr. and Mrs. George Kimball
