Early Canadian records provide the following names in the account books of John and Philip Rutier at Missisquoi Baie (Philipsburg) John Bockus-1792, Peter Rosenberger-1793, Frederick Primerman, Mathias Cammel- 1795, Christopher and John Katebock (Catchpaugh/Catchpaw/Catchpazin) -1797. As these family names are found aligned with the Creller family either through marriage, or association ( business, neighbour, military) it has been assumed that the Creller family had settled in the area at about the same time period. While recorded evidence of the exact date of arrival of the Creller has not been discovered ( as of the year 2005) , much evidence of their births, marriages, deaths and burials permits one to accept the above mentioned assumption that the Creller were in the area as early as 1795.

Records exist showing that, in Stanbridge county, part of the old Seigniory of St Armand, one Peter and one Philip Creller , had each taken possession of some 1,000 acres of land on Sept 1, 1800. Documents at the Bureau de Registre du Quebec in Bedford, dated 1831, indicate that one David Creller, son of Peter, sold the lots that he had received from his father to one James McGill and Associates. The Canadian census records of 1825, 1831, 1842, and 1851 indicate that one Rufus Creller, and one Peter Creller were listed as residents of Stanbridge East ( County Missisquoi) The listing on the census record places their residence on what is known as Dutch Road ,located just south of Bedford Quebec, in the vicinity of what is now the Ploss Cemetery.

There are many Creller family stones still standing in this Ploss Cemetery .The sons of those interred there can be found buried in the cemetery at Mystic, Quebec, just north of Bedford, in the Stanbridge Ridge Cemetery, just west of St Armand and in the main cemetery in the town of Bedford itself. Later generations of this main Creller line can be found buried in the Clarenceville ,Quebec area and still others are located in the cemeteries of Alburgh Vermont.

There may have been more children of this union but no records have been located as of 2023
Pieter Kreller it appears was born in 1838 but apparently may not have been baptized until 1842, and this is the reason we have two dates for him,
mind you it is possible there was a Pieter born in 1838 who died in ifancy and a second male born in 1842 was renamed Pieter, as was a custom on many families in those days. Until such time as further records can be located we have made the assumption that this is the one and the same person.


A note found amongst our research:
Resolved : Peter Craller , be liberated from confinement upon his entering into bond with security for his appearance and further good behaviour.
1778 Feb; Albany Committee
(Apparently Peter has been taken prisonner by the American Rebels following a skirmish with the English in which Peter had been conscripted or perhaps even volunteered)

From the information available (as of 2004) ,we know that Peter Creller was born in Red Hook NY and that his brother Rufus was born in Hoosic NY and that Polly was baptized in Schaghticoke NY . The names of the above children were culled from the records in the register's office in Bedford Quebec, the known dates confirmed with the inscriptions on the tomb stones found in the area. No record or any stone has been located for Phillip's wife, who we assume may have passed away before the family settled in the Stanbridge area. The fact that Polley Creller has been given the middle name of Kimmel or Cammel and given the assumption that the Kimmel or Cammel family was among the families that have been found to be associated with the Creller, one might assume that Phillip's wife was a Kimmel or Cammel.

Peter Creller moved to the Seigniory of Noyan, located further west of Phillipsburg ( Missisquoi), on the upper western part of the Baie. The land in that area was then owned by Colonel Christie, his land agent was William McGinnis.(as of 2023 we are still searching for the sale or rental transaction). Peter procured title to the lot of land described as lot 9, concession 7 of the then Seigneur de Noyan, property of Col Christie , and built himself a modest family home. At this location, Peter, we assumed met with the Denton family and married Orpha. Peter exercised the trade of farmer, through the births and deaths of his family members, his wife and finally himself.

Some interesting legal documents concerning this property












A photo of the back of the house in better times




Peter and Orpha's first child, a son was named William Stoddard certainly after his mother's parents, the second child a girl Ann Sylvia appears to have been named for sisters of Orpha, the third child Rufus Horatio carries the name Rufus we assume for Peter's brother in Stanbridge. The forth child Lucinda Maria we were assuming may have been named after Peter's mother (a record we have not yet found) and the last child a third girl was named it appears after her mother, herself. Unfortunately Lucinda Maria died very early on in life . The family passed their life experiences together in this small home and from there, each and every one of them set out on their separate paths. The house itself was handed down from one generation to another , being put to use by several families, some related others simply tenants until about 1960, when the house was left in disuse. Finally some time in the 1990's the lot of land containing was sold off and the house was torn down. Today in it's place is a modern home, there is however one of the original outbuildings that was retained and is still in use today.

Sylvia Creller moved to live with her sister Dineraz Smith, in Sycamore , Illinois. She departed this life in 1880 , an old spinster having spent her life looking after her father. Sylvia Creller died at the age of 68 and is buried in the Smith family plot in Genoa , Ill.,

Early on in life William Stoddard Creller took possession of some land in lot 30 , in concession 9 of the Seigniory of Noyan , and then acquired the land on lot number 225 in the 9th concession of Foucault , down from Nutt's Corner. He married Sophia Nutt and they produced a small family of 5 girls and one male offspring.
After the early death of Sophia Nutt, William Stoddard Creller remarried Elizabeth Newman, producing two other male offspring.
George Creller, son of Sophia Nutt and William Stoddard, became a carpenter, was at one time post master of the Aird. P Q mail office and then he moved over the border into Alburg Springs, Vermont taking possession in 1894 of the Mansion House, a hotel type lodging serving the mineral spring travelers of the period. Most of Geroge's offspring, he had five sons , established themselves in the Alburgh , Vermont area, and can be found there today. Robert Creller his great-great-great-grandson is a respected breeder of Highland Cattle in this area.



The male line of William's second marriage, moved to western Canada, where his descendants are to be found today.

As of January 2023 very little has been found regarding Charles W Creller, it is even uncertain where the name Charles originates as it does not appear in the Creller family line for as far back as this line has been traced. Charles may have died young and may have been buried in the Hawley- Southbeech Cemetery, but no marker has been located as of this day.If he emigrated to the United States as did his brother George there is no trace of him. if he moved out to the Canadain West with his stepbrother Wilford there is no trace either. It is unfortunate as I have been able to put all of his family together and would like to complete Charles's life

Notes provided by Keith Wolford Creller

This is the history of the Creller family as kept by my father Wolford George Creller. He wrote down what he could remember and placed it in the Family Bible. Wilford Stoddard Creller was born in Clarenceville , Quebec in 1855. He came to Winnipeg in 1878 and worked on a survey outfit north of Winnipeg near Lake Winnipeg . Agnes Elizabeth Cox, was born on December 4 1860 in Chatham, Quebec, which is on the border of Quebec and Ontario. It is also reported that she was born in Pointe Fortune, Quebec so we will also keep this on record. She came to Winnipeg in 1878 or 79 and worked as a maid. She quit her job and went north where she met Wolford S Creller. That fall she wanted to leave before winter closed in. Ches and Martin Holly ( could this be Hawley) and Wolford built a hand sleigh and pulled her across to Clandebury ( Carberry!!) where she could catch a train back to Winnipeg. This was the end of the railway line at the time.

The engineer on the survey gang built a log house at Clandebury and W S Creller stayed there for the winter. He used to throw scraps of food out the door and timber wolves would come up and eat them. The next spring he returned to Winnipeg. He was offered two lots where the CPR station eventually was built on the corner of Higgins and Main , for $25.00 a lot. He did not buy them because the mud was up to the top of his rubber boots and he thought the land would never be any good. Wolford Stoddard Creller and Agnes Cox were married in 1881 and he went to work on construction, building the CPR line to DeWinton. She was one of the first white women to settle in the area. When they reached there, he was made a Section Foreman and had 18 men working for him. He was making $1.25 per day and the men working for him made seventy five cents per day.

They lived in a granary at Lee's until a section house was built for them to live in. When the town was located at Carberry, Manitoba, the section house was moved to Carberry from DeWinton on a Sunday morning while they were still sleeping in bed. They lived in the Section house, 1 and miles west of Carberry until 1890. They had a daughter Eliza Belle Creller born February 8 1884, a daughter Margaret Clark Creller born January 26 1886, another daughter Josephine Creller born February 29 1888 and a son Reid Henry Creller born February 5 1890. All were born in Carberry, Manitoba while they lived in the section house. They moved to Melbourne Manitoba in 1890 and took up farming. Bertha Grace Creller was born Jan 21 1893 and Wolford George Creller was born April 27 1895. The house burned down in 1902 and they had to build another one.

Wilford Stoddard Creller died Oct 2 1914, and Mrs Creller stayed on the farm until 1922 when she moved to Winnipeg to stay with her son Wolford George. She stayed there until he got married on April 9 1928, returning to Carberry to keep house for her grandchildren who were attending school in town. In about 1930 Mrs W S Creller, returned to Winnipeg where she lived until the spring of 1942 with her son Wolford and his wife Vina. They took her to Carberry to live with her daughter Belle and son in law Harry Reynolds until she passed away August 9 1942. She was buried beside her husband in the Carberry Cemetery Aug 11 1942.

When Wilford Stoddard Creller was working, Ernest Seaton Thompson used to ride with them on the railway hand car. Ernest would jump off the car if he saw a coon or a badger or ground hog and he would chase them as they were very uncommon to him. He would dig into a mole hole until he caught the mole. People used to think he was crazy but he became a famous author and is honoured today by the people of the Carberry district. He would carry mice and snakes around in his pockets. When he wrote the book ' The Trail of the Sandhill Stag ' he followed the deer for a week. He would sleep when the deer slept and get up and follow it when it moved, yet it never knew he was there. This took place across from the farm which Wolford George Creller bought near Melbourne Manitoba in 1936 and farmed for a few years while living in Winnipeg.

("Attended by" being completely inadequate as these women are as inspirational as priestesses and as powerful in their magic as goddesses.)
Baby's first month has been great (on human milk he's gained 1 1/2 lbs!) due to the generosity of friends and relations. The new family is very grateful for the blessing received, the gifts of skill and time no less appreciated than the excellent loot and booty.)
Thank you to everyone.

James A Creller, 23 years old is listed living with the Newman family at census time 1881, he is the son of William Stoddard and Elizabeth Newman  The family is living in Clarenceville , Que however no record of the family has been found on the 1871 census leaving me to believe they were in the USA at that time  and since James does not appear on the 1881 listing he may had died by  beforehand .

Almira is the grand daughter of Peter Creller and  Orpha Denton , who lived in the little yellow house up on  North Beach   ( their son William's daughter)

Lewis John Reed and Almira produced one child which may have been the cause of Almira's demise so early in life .

They were living with Peter Creller  and his daughter Ann Sylvia. Peter had given   his farm lot to them on condition they looked after him and Ann, as they grew older.  Once Almira died , Lewis John Reed,  returned the  farm lot  to Peter ,  in good faith as Peter had made the gesture on Almira"s behalf and she was no longer living . Lewis had  no reason to remain .

Bev was associated with Thermal Wire during the 1960s and later for a time with the United States Postal Service in North Hero. But first and foremost in Bev's life was being a homemaker and mother, raising and caring for her 11 children. In addition, she was a quiet and devoted volunteer for many organizations including the Alburgh and Isle La Motte elementary schools, where she helped teach crafts to the students. Bev also knit caps for premature infants and dozens of mittens for the Chittenden Bank Mitten Tree at Christmas time and quilted blankets for the Burlington Rape Crisis Center. In her earlier years, she volunteered with 4H in Alburgh. Bev was a member of the Alburgh Library Assn.

Bev also leaves her much loved companion and best buddy, her cat Smudge. In addition to her parents and her husband, Bev was predeceased by a son-in-law, Marcus Cheney, in 1991; and by a great-grandson, Devon Connelly. Bev's family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the nurses and staff of the Franklin County Rehab Center for the wonderful care she received during her illness. A funeral service will be held Monday, Feb. 25, 2008, at 10 a.m. from the Kidder Memorial Home, 89 Grand Ave., Swanton.

Rufus Horatio Creller , the second son of Peter and Orpha , married Emily Bush in the parish of St. Georges de Clarenceville in Mar 23rd 1846, died in 1858 and is interred in the Union cemetery Clarenceville along with his wife, a son Marshall Gilbert, his daughter Josephine and son in-law George Hawley Macfie.

Rufus was a farmer, owner of large tract of land (100 acres) on Beech Road North. This land bordered his father's possession in the same concession of the Seiginory of Noyan and upon the death of his father Rufus came to own that lot which was his father's providing him with some 200 acres of land on Beech Road North. This farm land became known as it is today, as the Macfie homestead. Rufus also had acquired in the Seiginory of Foucault, lot 226 in concession 8 and probably concession 9 ( originally owned by Johnathan Irish) , this land bordered with his brother's lot 225 concession 9. This land being located on Beech Road South . The land also bordered with that of Robert Macfie who owned a large tract of land in concession 10 , running on down to Baie Missisquoi.


While the original house that Peter Creller had built for his family was torn down in about 1999 and the lands that had made up the Macfie homestead split up and sold off , the original home that Rufus constructed in about 1850 is now being renovated, and brought back as close to it's original state by a historical renovator, one Robert Pelletier and his wife Caroline Kehne.







Rufus and Emily, produced a family of five, three boys and two girls. Alice Lovica their first daughter died when she was five and is buried in the South Beech Cemetery , an iron plaque marker can be found there .The boys all went off to seek their fortunes in the United States of America.
Marshall Gilbert the youngest son, however had his life cut short by an avalanche and died in Colorado in 1891, he was a just, and an educated gentleman, well liked and respected. He had even been elected to the office of Constable in the county of Gunnison, in the State of Colorado in 1888.
Franklin Truman Creller moved to Joplin, Mich. where he became a wealthy industrialist, dealing in land development, and mining, one of his sons Charles S. Creller became an attorney at law in Kansas City.
Eugene Cullen Creller , for whom Robin Macfie was named, went off to Grass Valley California, during the early days of the gold rush. In 1869 He joined with two brothers Edward and John C Coleman who had spent some time in the Missisquoi area (1847-1851 ), as general manager in the Idaho Mining Company and rose to become treasurer. The Idaho Mining Company operation took $10 million US in gold bunion out of the ground from 1868 to 1889 .
The youngest daughter Orpha Josephine Creller went on to marry George Hawley Macfie , they inherited the Creller farm lands and lived there well into the 1930's. After the death of George Hawley Macfie, Josephine remained in the home accompanied by Alice Chew a homeland girl from England who had been taken in by the Creller family. Josephine then retrograded the homestead to a place of summer residence while she passed her time traveling and visiting relatives, having taken up temporary residence in a flat ( an apartment) on Hope Ave in Montreal, across the street from her son Robin and his family.

Mrs Creller:

Dear Madam
As an acquaintance and personal friend of your late son M.G.Creller, who lost his life last winter in one of our fatal snow slides , I take the liberty of addressing his mother ;
I first became acquainted with "Mart" in connection with some business relating to his prospecting affairs and ever since that time i have known him as a friend and companion. Knowing that I had the pleasure of seeing him many years after you were denied that pleasure I thought it might make you great grief a little lighter to hear from some one who had thus known him. He was a young man of most upright character, one whom to know was but to respect and admire, frank and open in his nature, generous and obliging in disposition, always ready to do a kind act, courteous in bearing and in fact a thorough gentleman.
He was a friend to every man and every man who knew him well was his friend. I knew of no young man in this country whose sad death would give me the pain that his death did.
I have a mother whom I have left at a long distance and I know if her son should meet the sad fate that overtook your son she would be glad to have some word from a friend who had known him in his latest life.

Yours Very Truly
S D Crump

Buried Beneath the snow
Clarenceville

The remains of Marshall Creller arrived here from Colorado, US, on Sunday night, the deceased was working a mine on one of the mountains of that state and in February last indications of an avalanche of snow induced him and two others working with him to descend en route for the valley. They were however overtaken and all three perished, Creller's remains and one of his companions were recovered the last of April. The deceased was a young man of much promise and highly esteemed.

The funeral services for the late Marshall G Creller were held on Tuesday in the Methodist Church. The Rev J W Clipsham officiating. This much lamented young man was buried under a snow slide in Colorado last February and his remains were brought home for internment as soon as they were recovered. The reception and sacramental services conducted by Mr. Clipsham last Sunday will be long remembered by the excellent sermon he preached.

Denver March 14 ( presumably 1891 ) : A special dispatch from Crested Butte Colo., to the Republican says Three more snow slide victims are reported. M G Creller, Pat Murphy and Jack Griffen, who have been at work on the Jacob Strader mine, are buried beneath the snow. The slide in over half a mile wide and it would seem that the whole mountain has come down, filling the basin with snow probably 100 feet deep. The place has been considered very dangerous, so much so that since the storm, no one had dared to venture up there until Thursday when three men went to see if their fellow miners were safe. They found no signs of a cabin, and the tunnel entrance was entirely covered. By tunneling through the snow for thirty feet they came to the cabin, which was demolished by snow. It is the general belief that the poor fellows had become alarmed and started to leave and were caught in their attempt to escape

HIGH GRADE SILICATES AT THIS JOPLIN MINE
( again no dates accompany the article)


RICH LEASES AT REDUCED ROYALTY
(no dates have been kept glued with the article)

One of the large land owners of the Joplin district in Frank T Creller, with offices in the Fourth Street Block. He is the owner in fee of five different tracts of land ranging in size from 40 acres to 320 acres and located close to Joplin.
These lands are all situated convenient to electric and steam railways, thus affording every advantage for economical operation. Each on of these tracts has been prospected sufficiently to prove that they are richly mineralized with both zinc and lead ores and are now being surveyed into ten acres blocks to be leased to operators at a reduced rate of royalty
Property on Creller Land Producing Ore That Gives a Premium of $8..45 on Second Car Made
An exceptionally promising silicate mine is being opened by George Gist, on a forty acre lease of the Creller land, southwest of Joplin. Ore that runs approximately $8.50 premium is being produced.
Operations at the mine are being carried on at a depth of only about forty five feet, but at this level a deposit has been encountered that is almost all silicate. It is reported that in getting out two car loads of ore, only a few wheelbarrows of waste have accumulated. Equipment of the property is not pretentious, including only a horse holster and two hand jigs, but it is believed Gist can make near a carload a week.
The quality of the ore is the principal attraction of the property. The first car load sold showed an assay of 47 percent zinc, and the second 48,45 per cent. As the ore sells on a basis of 40 percent metallic zinc, the sales brought $7. and $8.45 premium respectively.
The mine is located near the center of the forty acres, which is a part of the 320 acres of the Creller land that adjoins the city limits of Joplin on the southwest.
That a property of such worth can be developed right at the doors of Joplin and with such comparative small expenditure is considered as proving once more the oft repeated assertion that " the surface has only to be scratched here".





CRELLER & YOUNG LAND
( again no date accompany the clipping)


The Harry P Pears & Co. mine eight miles northwest of Joplin, formerly the Rice Mining company, has a production to its credit of 2,178,690 pounds of zinc ore and 22,300 pounds of lead ore made since the first of last February. This ore sold at the bin for $42,052.79 and was produced by cutting the ore body under the mill and south to the Excelsior block of lots. This has weakened the foundation to the mill , which will have to be moved. Drifts now being driven east from the pump shaft have developed rich ore bodies, and as soon as the mill is moved onto firm ground, which will begin this week, the same output from this mine will be resumed. this mine in on the Creller and Young Land.
The Excelsior Zinc and Lead company has the 10 & 1/2 lots adjoining the Pears & Co mine on the south, where the latter company has driven a face of ore onto then which is 60 feet wide, from which they were making from one to two tons an hour. The Excelsior company has to shafts underway which are nearly down to the ore zone, both of which show some ore. As soon as the ore body is reached and drifts cut into it this company will erect a first class mill.

Dr A P Campbell has purchased a block of 12 lots formerly owned by the Webb City Iron works, just east of the Excelsior. This property has several shafts and drifts into the ore zone, and Dr Campbell is now erecting a first class up to date mill on this block, which he expects to have completed and in operation by the first of December.
Dr Campbell also purchased 12 lots adjoining the Rice mine on the east. Ore has been traced onto these lots from the south and the Rice Mining company has driven a rich ore body nearly to this block from the west. Arrangements have been made to erect another first class mill on this block since its mineral richness has been proven.





Creller Congratulates News Herald on Stand Taken Regarding Spelter Quotations

Joplin, Mo Jan 20, 1915

To the Minify Editor of the News Herald:
It is gratifying to know that you have taken the trouble to ascertain and shown the courage to publish the facts in regard to the zinc and lead metal quotations of this country. I have observed for twenty years and have frequently stated that the market quotations on spelter did not represent the actual selling price quoted.
However, this unsatisfactory manipulation of prices of zinc are events of the past, as they cannot be successfully practiced under a foreign demand. With the declaring of war in europe it was plain to be seen by those informed as to where the zinc ores are produced and that the metal consumed, what the effects on the markets would be. Germany, Belgium and Austria produce about one half of the zinc metal of the world. Their mines and smelters are located in the zone where the battles have been fought, and will continue to be for some time, which must damage all of them and some of them will be necessarily entirely destroyed.
England has 87 per cent of the trade of the world in galvanized sheet iron, wire and sheet zinc. She produced about 65,000 long tons of metal from Australian ores and bought about 200,000 long tons of metal a year from Germany and Belgium. Her trade on these goods is all over South and Central America, Asia and Africa, Australia, Canada and in fact, most everywhere except in the United States, and it is expected that she will strive to hold this trade. To do so she must obtain the quantities of metal that she formerly bought in Germany and Belgium, in this country. To realize what effect this extraordinary demand will have on our market, it must be remembered that when business is normal in this country we have never produced sufficient zinc to supply the home consumption, having imported both ore and metal in 1912, when we made our largest production and received the highest price ever paid in this country up to that time. The reported exportation of metal from this country prior to last September were from ore smelted in bond, except a little produced from willemite ore of New Jersey. It should not be forgotten that the increased consumption of zinc metal doubles every twelve years.
With these conditions before us, it is not difficult to understand why spelter in London has steadily advanced and in all probability will continue to do so for some time. The spelter production of this country has increased from 203,849 short tons in 1905 to 360,000 in 1914. The steady advance in the price of zinc metal and ore is the result of legitimate foreign demand, caused by the sudden curtailment of about 50 per cent of the world's production.
Under these conditions it is quite probable that spelter will reach the price of ten cents a pound and our high grade ore $80 a ton before the close of this year, and the encouraging feature of it is that the price is up to stay for many years. The higher prices will not lessen the consumption, as there is nothing that can be substituted for it that would be satisfactory ; in fact, zinc metal has never brought the prices that its importance entitled it to, as it is as useful a metal as copper and should command nearer the same price than it has.

Died of His Injuries - Edson P Smith Passed away at Sioux Sxity June 22 - Funeral in Genoa Sunday

Survived just a week after accident in Iowa City - Blood clot on brain - Conscious to the last

EDSON P SMITH, who was injured at Sioux City, Iowa, Thursday June 15, died in the hospital in that City on the 22nd. The body was brought to Geona Saturday morning. Funeral services were held at the home of the brother of the deceased Henry Smith, and at the M E Church Sunday morning Rev F F Farmiole of Rocford officiating, Miss Alice Davis rendered the vocal selections at the church. Internment took place at the Genoa cemetery.

The following obituary and account of the accident was read by Rev Farmiole at the church.

Edson P Smith , third son of the late John G and Orpha D Smith was born in Sycamore township March 12 1856 and lived with his parents on the farm until he was 19 years old. The family then moved to the city of Sycamore and he attended the public schools there. Later he became a student in Janesville Wis, where he graduated. Soon after his graduation he engaged in mercantile pursuits in Stockton Kas. He moved to Chicago in 1892 where he remained for 13 years. On February 1 1894 he was married to Miss Emma Louis Peter, of Chicago. Of this union there is one child John Gordon Smith. Mr Smith and family came to Genoa on February 15 1905, and remained here nearly six years. He moved from Geona to Sioux City, Iowa , on the 19th of May 1910, remaining there until March 1911, then the family moved to Kansas City Mo, where they lived at the time of his death. He was president of the Cyclone Churn Co. of Kansas City , Mo. Called to Sioux City on business on the 14th of June 1911, he met on the street his nephew Harold Hathaway, who was driving a horse and buggy, and he expressed a desire to visit Harold's mother before attending to the business that had brought him to the city. While driving up West Third street they were overtaken by the fire department. The sound of the gong frightened the horse and caused it to run away. Mr Smith rose in the buggy to assist Harold in the attempt to control the horse, and while crossing the track of the City Car Co. was thrown bodily from the conveyance and very seriously injured. He was taken to the St Vincent hospital where everything that could be done was done to minister to his comfort. At first there seemed to be good hope that he would recover but a clot of blood had formed, preventing the normal action of the heart and when hope was at its highest he suddenly collapsed. He was conscious up to the last and was kindly administered to by the sisters in the hospital, and when death was evidently approaching he called for a picture of the Savious of Men, owned by his beloved wife and pressing his lips to it again and again , declared his trust in the world's Redeemer. At this moment the sisters in attendance held the cross before his fading vision and he pressed his lips to it and died voicing the gratitude to those who had ministered so kindly to him and his undying love to his dear wife who had been in constant attendance upon him night and day during the week. The accident occurred on the morning of June 15th and he died on the 22nd of June at 3:00 p.m. He was a devoted husband, a kind, affection father, a loving brother, an honored citizen and a noble man. I never heard a more tender, kindly tribute from human lips than was paid to him by his devoted and bereaved companion. Peace to his memory.

The mourners who are with us today, beside his loving wife and son, are Mr and Mrs B F Green, Mr and Mrs H J Collins and daughter Gertrude, Mr and Mrs L Goodspeed, of Rockland, Wm H Smith and his wife of Genoa, Mr and Mrs A E Proctor of New Orleans LA, Mr and Mrs Charley Green of Chicago, E.L. Smith, wife and daughter Ester of Charter Grove, Mr and Mrs J E Hathaway their son Harold, and daughter Ruth of Sioux City Iowa, L B Smith, wife and son Harry of Elgin , Mrs Scudder of Chicago, and Mrs J A Patterson of Genoa, sisters of Mrs Smith ; Misses Laura and Lilyan Catellier and Mrs Garneau of Chicago.
