    The angel of death has again visited our community and summoned from our midst a highly respe cted old lady in the person of Mrs. Thos. McMillan, formerly of Cumberland. The late Mrs. Mc Millan was born in Cumberland, and in the early part of her life moved to what is known as Mo untain Farm, on the Lievre River. She was the first woman who visited that part of the Lievr e, and her husband was the first white man that cut a tree on the farm. From there she move d back to Cumberland, where she resided up to a few months ago when she came to reside with h er daughter, Mrs. George Coad, Portland. Her health began to fail and in spite of the best m edical attendance and tenderest nursing she gradually became weaker and death claimed its vic tim Monday, Dec 7th, at 6 p.m. Deceased was of a loving, charitable disposition, and bore he r suffering with true Christian fortitude. She was quite resigned to go to the home which sh e knew was prepared for her. The funeral took place Wednesday, December 9th, and was largel y attended. In the absence of the Presbyterian pastor, Rev. Mr. Meyer officiated. The lon g concourse of sorrowng friends which followed the remains to their last resting place testif ied to the high esteem in which the deceased was held. The floral tributes were many and bea utiful. She leaves to mourn her loss three sons and two daughters, to whom, with the other r elatives, the sympathy of the community is extended.
