May 28, p.8:Allen Marshall -Much surprise was expressed when the announcement was made that Allen Marshall, a young and progressive farmer of East Garafraxa, only a short distance from town, has passed away at 1 o'clock on Thursday afternoon. The news as totally unexpected, as few people had been aware that Mr. Marhsall had been ill about a week before his demise Mr. Marshall became afflicted with grave's goiter and he rapidly grew worse and nothing could stay the progress of the disease. Everything possible was done to prolong his life but the most skillful physicians could do nothing and the sufferer passed away at the time stated above.

The late Allan Marshall was a most highly respected resident district and was exceedingly well liked by all who knew him. He was of a quiet disposition and was absolutely upright and honorable in all his dealings of this with his fellow-men. He was a good farmer and his 100-acre farm adjoining the town is one of the best in this county. His untimely demise at the comparatively early age of 41 years is most deeply regretted. Besides a young widow and three fine children, an aged mother, who resided with him, are left to mourn the death of a kind and indulgent husband and father. Two sisters, Mrs. (Rev.) Ferguson of Tottenham and Mrs. W.A. Wansbrough of Grand Valley, and two brother, William of Medicine Hat, Alta., and Fred J. of Calgary, Alta., also survive. The bereaved ones are assured of the sympathy of the entire community in their hour of trial.

The funeral took place to Greenwood cemetery on Monday afternoon and was one of the largest seen in this part of the country for a long time, there being nearly one hundred rigs in the procession. Service at the house and grave was conducted by Rev. G.W. Robinson, pastor of the Methodist church, who paid a deservedly high tribute to the integrity of the deceased. The pallbearers were Rev. Mr. Ferguson, F.J. Marshall, W.A. Wansbrough, J.D. McMillan, Marshall and John Green.
