Obituary

WHITINGHAM
Death Saturday of Moses Streeter, Native and Long Resident.

Moses Streeter, 72, died Saturday after nearly a week's illness with the grip. Mr. Streeter was born in this town, and was one of six children of James and Sally Corbett Streeter. He was a brother of the late Deacon Royal C. Streeter, who died last June. Mr. Streeter was three times married. He lived in Connecticut where he married his second wife, afterward removing to Charlemont, Mass., where his wife died, leaving two little children. His third wife was Martha Elmer of Heath. Seven children were born to them, one daughter dying about 17 years ago of consumption, while two daughters and four sons survive him. The wife died about three years ago, also of consumption. Mr. Streeter went last fall to live in the family of John Gillett, where he was kindly cared for. He is survived by an aged sister and one brother. Mr. Streeter went to Nebraska to live some 30 years ago, but did not like it there, and after a year or so moved back to this, his native town, where he has since resided. He had been a member of the Baptist church here for over 26 years. Funeral services were held there Monday, Rev. Mr. Crofts officiating. Burial was in the village cemetery. Two sons and two sons-in-law acted as bearers.
