Sunday's Obituary - William S. Barrows

WILLIAM S. BARROWS died Thursday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Charles J. Gartenschlager, 1005 Grand Central avenue, aged seventy-three years. He is survived by his daughter, Mrs. Gartenschlager of Elmira, four sons, Frank of Auburn, Ezra of Elmira, Ray and Mitchell of Lockwood. The funeral will be held at the family home at Lockwood this afternoon at 1:30 o'clock. The Rev. M. Logan will officiate. Burial in the Lockwood cemetery.
William died approximately one year after his wife, Minnie. It has not been verified if he moved in with his daughter after her death or if he was just visiting. There is most likely a more informative obituary in the Lockwood/Barton area since he lived there for a good part of his life, however, since he died in Elmira there was a short mention of it.
