Death of Marshall Upthegrove

Mr. Marshall Upthegrove, a life-long and respected resident of Waterford, died on Thursday last after an illness of several weeks.

He never recovered from a serious illness with the flu and all attempts to restore the patient to health were of no avail.

His was the third death in the family in a short time., his son and brother both having died recently.

A wife and one daughter survive. They have the sympathy of many friends.

The funeral was held from his late residence on Sunday afternoon. The service was in charge of the Orangemen and conducted by the Chaplain, Rev. Frank Anderson, M.A.

There was an unusually large procession and members were present from Simcoe and Brantford. Interment took place in Greenwood.
