The Late Alfred Masecar

The death of Alfred E. Masecar took place in Hamilton, 23 Jul 1917. Deceased was the youngest son of 
Mrs. E. H. Masecar and the late Eli Masecar, formerly 
of North Walsingham. He was in his 31st year.

Mr. Masecar's early years were spent in Norfolk, where 
he received his early education, and for a short time he taught school at Vanessa.

About 10 years ago he went to the States where he was engaged in commercial work and at which he was very successful until the failure of his health. He married Miss Emma O'Heron in Jul 1910, and enjoyed about two years of good health after his marriage. Then he found that tuberculosis had a strong hold on him and after a long fight he succumbed to the disease.

He was a very popular young man and made many friends. He is survived by his wife, Emma of Simcoe, two small children, Robert, 5, and Barbara, 2, his mother, three sisters, Mrs. Wm. Sinden of Langton, 
Mrs. Henry Krender of New York City, and one brother, R. H. Masecar of Simcoe.

The funeral took place from his mother's residence in Woodhouse, to Lynedoch Cemetery, 25 Jul 1917.
