Grim Reaper Has Called Malcolm Campbell.
The people of Boyne City were shocked Sunday afternoon by the news of the death of Malcolm Campbell, who left here for his home in Simmons only the Monday before, in good health. The death of Mr. Campbell was due to an injury received in the mill in which he was employed. On Saturday afternoon, while assisting a boy to put on his belt, his clothing caught and his arm drawn across the saw, which cut very deeply just above the elbow. The services of a physician were secured as soon as possible and he was taken to the hospital in Manistique, accompanied by his wife and the foreman of the mill, where the arm was properly attended to, but owing to the weak condition of Mr. Campbell's heart, it was impossible for him to rally and at 5:30 Sunday morning he passed away.
Brief funeral services were held in Manistique by Knights of the Maccabies, of which order Mr. Campbell was a valued member, and the remains were brought to Boyne City Monday accompanied by the family, and were met at Boyne Falls by a deputation from the K.O.T.M of this place. A funeral service was held at the new cemetery where the remains were laid to rest.
Mr. Campbell was born in Canada June 28th,1850. He came with his parents to Michigan when 17 years of age, and was married about thirty years ago to Miss Bertha Pierce, who with one son and three daughters survive to mourn a tender husband and father. The family moved to Boyne City from South Boardman about twelve years ago, since which this has been their home until last February, when the family moved to Simmons, in the upper-peninsula, in order to be with Mr. Campbell, who had a lucrative position with a firm there.
Mr. Campbell's aged mother, Mrs. McCullough of Fife Lake, Mrs. Campbell, a sister-in-law, of the same place and a brother, Angus Campbell and wife of South Boardman were here to attend the funeral; Mrs. Wm. Randall of this place is also a sister of the deceased (Boyne Citizen, June 1905).
The many friends of the family sympathize deeply with the stricken relatives in their sore bereavement.
