Death of Duncan M. Campbell

One by one the old landmarks pass away to their long rest and leave behind them a young and stronger generation eager to step into place thus made vacant and to take up the work where their honored father laid it down. Word reached this fine Friday of the death of Duncan M. Campbell of Campbell Settlement, Kings Co. which occured at an early hour that morning.

The deceased had not been enjoying good health for a few weeks but his death was unexpected. Only about a month ago, the death of his son Andrew Campbell occured at Fairvale and a few days after, Mrs. D.M. Campbell passed away. The death of the father, mother and son occurring within a few weeks makes it doubly sad. Duncan M. Campbell was one of the best known men in Kings County. He was one of the oldest J.P.s in the country. He served at the municipal council board for a number of years and as a land surveyor was known throughout the entire province. When the I.C.R. was being constructed, Mr. Campbell was employed in the survey. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church.
