Alexander Grey Milne
Many friends will hear with regret of the death at Springfield MA of Alexander G. Milne. Mr. Milne resided at Revere, MA for a number of years. He had been in poor health for some time and went to Springfield about two weeks before his death in the hope that the change of climate might benefit him. He seemed improved at first but a change for the worse took place and in spite of all that skilled physicians could do, he passed away peacefully on May 12.
He was a native of St. George, NB a son of the late Alexander G. Milne, of the firm, Milne Coutts and comp. He was a young man of sterling character and of a kindly disposition that endeared him to all that knew him.
He leaves a wife, formerly Mrs. May Corbett of Revere, MA, one sister, Mrs. H.W. Andrus, and one brother George Milne both of Springfield, MA.
