The Late Oscar McClellan

The remains of the late Oscar McClellan of Worland, Wyoming, accompanied by Mrs. McClellan and her three their children, and sister-in-law Mrs. Geo. McClellan, reached Waterford Friday about 2 p.m. and were taken to the home of Mrs. McClellan's mother, Mrs. J. Baird.

The deceased was born about 53 years ago at Rockford, and taught school for several years at Boston. Soon after this he went west to Wyoming. About 18 years ago he married Miss Ella Baird. 

The deceased had been ailing with Bright's disease for some time, and his life was despaired of in September, but he rallied sufficiently to be taken home from the hospital and seemed better for a short time.

The late Mr. McClellan was a member of Court Boston, I.O.F., and of Wilson Lodge, No. 113, A.F. &  A.M.

Interment took place in Greenwood Cemetery. The sincerest sympathy of a wide circle of relatives and friends is extended to the sorrowing widow and family of three children, two girls and a boy.
