C.H. Colville
Sequin lost one of her best citizens last Sunday afternoon in the death of Charles H. Colville which took place at his home in East Seguin at the residence Monday at 4 P.M., Rev. J.G. Forrester conducting the services. Interment was made at the King family cemetery. Mr. Colville was born at Arrowtown, New Zealand on Oct. 28th 1863, where he grew to manhood, graduating with honors at Dunnedin. About 16 years ago he came to the United States locating in New Mexico where he taught school for several years. In 1897 he was married to Miss Annie D. King, daughter of Major and Mrs. Wm. King of Seguin, who with two sons Myron H. and William King Colville survives him. He is also survived by a step father, W.T. Marshall; two sisters, Mrs. Mood and Mrs. Kimsy, of Denver, Colo. and a brother Dave Colville of Canada. Mr. Colville had been successful as a business man in Seguin, and for a number of years up to the time of his death, was a member of the wholesale firm of the Seguin Grocery Co. of which he was also manager. Of sturdy Scotch ancestry, born in the land of ferns and flowers, for which South Island is especially noted, and imbibing from early childhood, the independent spirit of pioneer citizenship in an isolated island, Mr. Colville was well equipped for appreciating the broad tolerance and liberal institutions of this government. As a business man he was straightforward and honest; as a citizen he was always upright; as a man and friend he was ever true. It would seem that he went too soon.
