McNeil, in the 95th year of his age.  The deceased was born in the parish of Christmas Island, C.B. and in early life took up his abode in Georgeville.  Honest and upright to his dealings, strong in faith, punctual in attending to his religious duties his whole life was a preparation for the passage to eternity.  A devout reception of the last sacraments consoled and encouraged him at the end .  After a Requiem High Mass, his remains were laid to rest with those who went before him to their reward.  Three sons and two daughters survive him to mourn their loss.
