                                   DIED    MASON

In East Bloomfield, NY, July 6, 1885, William R. Mason, aged 73 years.  William R. Mason was born in the county of Norfolk, England. He came to this country in 1848, and shortly afterwards settled in this town where he died. He engaged in farming, in which he was very successful.

Not only did he raise a large family, assisting some of them in the struggles of life, but laid up a fair competency for old age. He was liberal although not a member of any church, his purse was freely open for them. The clergyman of the Roman Catholic Church, who was present at the funeral, informed the writer that Mr. Mason had been generous to them.

Only the day before his death he expressed a strong desire that a bell should be placed in the Methodist church, agreeing to give a good sum himself, and to personally solicit others to do the same. His family at his death consisted of his wife and his twelve children, all of whom are grown to manhood and womanhood. Eight of the children are sons, and four are daughters, all of them but one were present at the funeral.

There are alive twenty eight grandchildren, and four great grandchildren, so that in his children, as well as money, he has added to the material wealth of his adopted country.  For two years he has to my knowledge, been a constant attendant generally twice each Sunday, at church. 

The day before he died he was there, in the morning, and when asked not to go in the evening, he urged that he must hear the last of five sermons on the Avenues to Success in Life, a series of sermons preached evenings by the pastor. That evening his great interest was shown in his earnest attention, which attracted the notice of nearly all present. His wife and large family and many friends mourn his loss. His body was interred 1885 East Bloomfield, New York, East Bloomfield Cemetery.
