William Mackes

William Mackes, a well known resident of Saylorsburg, passed away at his home there on Wednesday evening at 7:30 o'clock, aged 66 years. He had been ill for the past four weeks, having been seized with an attack of the grip, which developed complications bringing about his death.
His many friends are deeply shocked by his death.

The deceased was a son of the late George and Emma Lessig Mackes and never married. He was a baker by trade, having worked in that line for about 25 years, later taking up farming. He was a trustee and steward of the Brick Evangelical Church, Saylorsburg.

He is survived by four brothers and four sisters as follows: Alvin Mackes, Scranton; County Commissioner, Harry Mackes, of East Stroudsburg; Isaiah and Clyde Mackes, Mrs. O. L. Balliett and Miss Mary Mackes, of Saylorsburg; Mrs. Harry Gruver and Miss Florence Mackes, of Wind Gap.

The funeral will take place at the late home on Sunday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock, with further services in the Brick Evangelical church, at 2, Rev. William Deats, the pastor, officiating. The remains will be interred in the adjoining cemetery. E. M. Kresge, of Brodheadsville, has the funeral arrangements in charge.
