MRS. MYkTLB C. STURTEVANT 1
A special from Island Falls, under date
of July 28th, to the Bangor Commercial,
gives the following obituary of interest
to Brooks and Belfast: ,
The whole town was saddened Saturday
by the news of the sudden death of Mrs.
Myrtle Carson Sturtevant of Brooks!
whose death occurred at the hospital in
Belfast Mrs. Sturtevant was born in
Island Falls 29 years ago, the daughter of
William and the late Elizabeth Carson.
Her early life was spent in this town,
where she received her education in the
village schools, graduating from the Is
land Falls High school in the clasB of
1914. Later she attended the Aroostook I
Normal school, where she was graduated i
in 1917. She was a very successful teach- i
er, teaching for a number ot years in
Washburn, later in Old Town and Brooks.
Myrtle was a girl possessing a particular
ly sunny disposition and a pleasing per
sonality, making her a favorite with all
her associates. In December, 1919, she
was married to Walter Sturtevant of
Milo, and although their married life was
comparatively short it was a very happy
one. The first of July she entered the
Belfast hospital and on July 6th a baby
girl was born to them. She made a very
rapid recovery and on Friday, July 22nd,
Mr. Sturtevant came to take her to their
home, when she was taken suddenly ill
and only lived a few hours. Word was
at once sent to relatives here and her
father, William Carson, and two sisters,
Mrs. Nellie Berry of this town and Mrs.
Pearl Lovely cf Houlton started for Bel
fast, but did not reach there till after she
expired.
The remains were brought here Mon
day and funeral services were held Tues
day afternoon at the home of her sister,
after which the body was taken to Milo
for burial. Mr. Sturtevant’s parents,
brother and two sisters from Milo were
present at the service. There were also
present five menlbers of the class of
1914, I. F. H. S., and one of the class of
1917, A. S. N. S. In the absence of Rev.
T. B. Hatt, pastor of the. Congregational
church of which the deceased was a
member, Rev. W. P. Richardson con
ducted the services, reading several com
forting passages of Scripture and making
very helpful remarks. Besides the rela
tives already mentioned she leaves an in
fant daughter and one brother, Warren
Carson, of this town. There were very
many beautiful floral offerings.
r~ RUFUS F. LOWELL.
Rufus F. Lowell was born in f reedom,
Maine, Jan. 10, 1847, and died at his
home in Montville, July 26, 1921. He
was the oldest child of the late William
R. and Mary M. Lowell and for more
than fifty years had been a resident of
the town in which he died. Mr. Lowell
was a man of unblemished character and
sterling worth. He was naturally of a
modest, retiring disposition and never
sought places of prominence, but among
his townsmen and neighbors he was held
in very high esteem. He was a farmer
by occupation, but he loved the beautiful
and the best in music and literature, and
these were the things which appealed to
him. In religious belief Mr. Lowell was
a Methodist and had been a faithful, con
sistent member of the church for many
years. One of a family of eight children
he outlived all but one and foi many
years after the death of his father, he was
both father and brother to the sisters
whom he most devotedly loved and for
whom he gladly gave himself in unremit
ting toil. One sister, Belle M , survives
; him. Her devotion to him and her ten
der, loving care during the long illness,
which resulted in his death are well
known to all who knew the family. Her \
tribute to him was: “A purer minded
man never lived, and he never gave me
an unkind word.” The funeral took
place Friday afternoon at his late home,
Rev. Nathan Hunt of Morrill officiating,
assisted by Rev. and Mrs. F. H. Morgan.
Mrs. Morgan, a life-long of the family,
made appropriate remarks, closing with
an original poem, “The Land Beautiful.”
“One Sweetly Solemn Thought,” the fa
vorite hymn of the deceased, was sung.
The flowers were many and beautiful.
THE LAND BEAUTIFUL.
There ie a land where the flowers never
wither,
Where roees never droop their lovely heads
and die;
A land where flows a clear, life-giving river,
i Where pain can never come, nor tear nor
sigh.
Not far away that iand of beauty lieth.
Not far away, but nearer than we dream;
i The loved we’ve lost are there—none ever
dieth;
j Its golden streets with ransomed millions
teem
Sometimes we catch fair visions of its bowers;
Sometimes we hear its melodies divine;
Sometimes is borne to us the perfume of its
flowers.
Sometime in radiance brignt its wondrou.i 1
towers shine. '
Wouldst reach that land, O pilgrim worn and
weary?
Wouldst know its joys and taste its bliss
divine?
When sorrows press and life seems sad and 1
dreary
Wouldst catch the light which from its portals
shine?
There is one way by which to reach its glory.
One narrow path, with blood drops all the
way;
One thorn crowned Man, the Man of song and i
story,
uan lead tbee up,and on to realms of endless •
day.

CAPT. WARRbN A. GRIFEIN
Captain Warren A. Griffin, a life-long
resident of Searsport, died suddenly at
his home on the old Griffin place Friday,
July 15th. The cause of death was a
ruptured aneurism of a large blood vessel
near the heart. Capt. Griffin comes of a
family long resident in Searsport. His
father was Eben Griffin, who also lived
on the old farm which had descended to
him through his father, Ebenezer Griffin,
who in turn inherited from his father,
Samuel Griffin—one of the pioneers of
the Penobscot Harbor region. Samuel
I Griffin and his wife Desire with their
family came from New London, Conn.,
and settled at Searsport, then called New
Canaan, in April, 1775. The Griffins have
a long line of ancestry in this country
leading back to very early Massachusetts
history. The male line runs back to
Humphry of ancient Ipswich, Mass., and
uuc ui lug remaie lines runs DacK a gen
eration earlier through the Averys, Siiap
leys and Picketts to Ruth Brewster, a
grand-daughter of the celebrated Elder
William Brewster of the Mayflower.
Capt. Griffin attended the Searsport town
schools till the age of 17 years. Then he
went to sea as ordinary sailor on the brig
James Crosby, following the sea till in
1862 he became mate of the ship States
man with Capt. Ephraim Pendleton. He
was captain of the brig Jeremiah about
1868, then of the brig H. H. Wright about
1875. Shortly before 1880 he sold an in
terest that he had purchased in the bark
entine Clara E. McGilvery and made a
trip to London in the ship Matilda. About
1885 he took the bark Nerid to Buenos
Ayres, and in 1887 the bark Thomas God
dard to Callao and Arequita. This was
his last trip to sea. In 1895 he built a
! grocery store which he conducted for 17
I years in connection with the post office
known as Park. Capt. Griffin is survived
by his widow, formerly Laura Ella Young
of Bangor, and by his sons, F. M. Griffin
of Malden, Mass., W. A. Griffin, Jr., of
Bangor; also by his daughters, Prudence
Pendleton, Edna May and Mary Eva, now
; Mrs. Almon B. Hodgkins of Bar Harbor;
by his grand-daughter, Dorothy R. Griffin
of Bangor, and by his sister, Mrs. Eliza
j Ann Pendleton of Haverhill, Mass. In
■ terment took place Sunday afternoon,
| July 17, in the Bowditch cemetery at
! Searsport.
