Massena-Mrs. Ida Watson Ashton, 79, native of this township, died Wednesday, Apr. 1, in Northampton, Mass., according to word received here. The funeral was held Friday afternoon and burial was in a cemetery at Nashua, NH.

Mrs. Ashton was born June 5, 1862, at Massena Center, a daughter of John F. and Ellen Donovan Watson. The family later moved to Brasher Falls where she attended school and the old Lawrenceville Academy. She went to Lowell, Mass., worked in a hosiery mill there for a period, and then married Joshua J. Morse of Nashua, N. H. They conducted a book and confectionery store in that city until his death in 1907.

Five years later she married Charles W. Ashton, Brasher Falls. They purchased the Blanchard grocery store and carried on the business. Mr. Ashton died in 1913. In 1921, Mrs. Ashton closed the business, sold the building to the Community Theater Company, and purchased a home on Lawrence Ave., Brasher Falls, which she sold in 1936, and went to Holyoke, Mass., to be with her brother and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Allen B. Watson.

Surviving are a brother, of Holyoke; a sister, Mrs. Lucinda Green, Waterbury, Conn.; a nephew, Wright Watson, Brasher Falls, and three nieces, Mrs. Wilder Thomas, Waterbury, Conn., and Mrs. George Paxton and Mrs. Mabel Temper, Brasher Falls.
