The TALES you probably never heard about

BENJAMIN MARR

[Welland Tribune, 3 September 1897]

Last week we noted the illness of the child of Mr. and Mrs. Benj. A. Marr of Pittsburg, Pa., who were visiting Mr. Marr’s old home here. We regret to have to state that the child has since died. Mr. and Mrs. Marr were advised to return home thinking that might induce recovery of the little one from his illness, but the child got worse in Buffalo and on Thursday last week passed to be with Him who has said, “Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for as such is the kingdom of heaven.” The funeral took place at Pittsburg on Saturday afternoon. Mr. and Mrs. Marr have the deep sympathy of all friends in their peculiarly distressing bereavement.
