The TALES you probably never heard about


Niagara Falls Town

[Welland Tribune, 2 April 1897]

The very sad news reached here on Monday morning that Hugh Webster, operator on the M.C.R. bridge, had died in Buffalo on Sunday, after undergoing a critical operation, aged 25 ½ years. Mr. Webster was married about two years ago to C.A. Huggins’ second daughter, who is now left alone with her little one to mourn the loss of a good husband. Deceased belonged to the Oddfellows and Masonic orders, the members of which societies attended the interment, which took place at Fairview after service in the Methodist church. Mrs. Webster has the hearty sympathy of this community in her trouble to which we add ours with all sincerity.
