An old and well known resident of the North Egypt country died the morning of Nov 3. He was about 56 years old and had been a resident of Egypt the past 12 years and for the past 2 years had lived on the Tom Snyder ranch. He was quite well known in and around Davenport. His end was sudden and unexpected, although it was often predicted that he would drop off in that way. His only known relative a brother who lives in Manitoba was notified of his death and wired W. G. Duncan saying it was impossible for him to attend. Dr. Herchimer was an old timer here and had he been able to resist the drink habit he could have built up a good practice and been independent, but that terrible habit that brings so many people to ruin was his king. However, the Doctor was respected as a neighbor and citizen, being worse to himself than to anyone else. His remains were interred in Frans Cemetery at Egypt. ref: Egypt News of LCT-16 Nov 1906 *Frans Cemetery Transcriptions as Doc George F.
