August 16,p.5:Archie Murdock - A telegram on Saturday brought the startling intelligence of the death that morning at Fort William, of Mr. Archibald Torrie Murdock, of this place. He had been in poor health for two or three years. For a month back however, he had been arranging some gangs and camps on a contract of construction work on the G.T.P. 190 miles northwest of Fort William, and being troubled for several days with an attack of piles for relief from which he underwent a minor operation. He rallied form this but before morning it became evident that the shock of the operation and chloroform had been a sever strain on his heart which rapidly gave out at six o'clock the next morning.
The body was brought by C.P.R. Arriving her Monday noon, and the following day at 2:30 after an appropriate service conducted by Rev. A. Shepherd, was borne to the public cemetery followed by a large concourse of sorrowing and sympathizing people and there interment took place The pallbearers were Messrs. D. D. Murdock, Dugald Smith, Archie Torrie, Alex. McColeman and John Mercer.
Deceased was born in Erin township Wellington County in December 1863; came with his parents some five year later to Euphrasia where his father died some twenty years ago. At an early age Archie went railroad building, first on the Ontario and Quebec and soon after became a foreman and then contractor of construction work in B.C., and later in New Ontario. He was a man of undoubted integrity and superior business capacity, highly respect on all sides. Seven years ago he married Miss Maggie McColeman, of Sullivan, who with two children, Donald,John, aged 5 and Arthur Robert, aged 3 years survive. His mother, aged 82 years, also a resident of this place, and three brothers, Arthur, Montreal; John, on the homestead, Harkaway; Duncan, Reid's Station, Quebec; also one sister, Mrs. C. Morgan, of Shoal Lake, al of whom were at the funeral except Mrs. Morgan, who found it impossible to be present. - Markdale Standard
