for the past two years but attended to his duties until the fore part of

strength. Mr. Liscomb was born in the town of DeKalb, but had
resided in this town a good share of his life, with the exception of three
years spent in the town of Fowler, where he was employed in the light and power
plant of the Oswegatchie Light and Power Co, and previously for a time ***.
Charles Liscomb was a man of the strictest integrity,
a genial neighbor, a kind husband and loving father, and his loss is greatly
deplored by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. Besides his widow
he is survived by four children, Edith, Arthur, Mildred, and Sarah, also
his mother, Mrs. Eleanor Liscomb of Harrison, Mich; two brothers, Leonard
of Harrison, Mich and Sylvester of Florida; two sisters, Mrs.
John Powell of Buffalo, and Mrs. T. B. Metcalf of Richmond Hill, Ont.
