William F. Getchell, aged 76, died at the residence of his brother-in-law, A. R. Morrison, 31 Fourth Avenue, S.W., Sunday morning following an illness of some duration. The funeral was held Tuesday at the residence and services were conducted at 2:30 at the Plymouth church at Crathorne and interment made in the cemetery at that place. Rev. G.C.

William F. Getchell was born October 25, 1851, at Marblehead, Massachusetts, and died May 29, 1927, at the home of A.R. Morrison, at LeMars, Iowa, at the age of 75 years, 7 months, and 4 days. He was the son of Wm. F. and Elizabeth Getchell and was the eldest of three children. He was married to Mary A. Morrison at Marblehead, Mass., June 10, 1897, and they continued to make their home at Marblehead where Mr. Getchell was engaged in driving and express wagon. In 1905 he moved to LeMars, Iowa, and engaged in farming until 1911 when he moved to Idaho, returning to LeMars in 1925 where he has since resided.

He is survived by his wife, Mary A. Getchell, one sister, Mrs. Roundy, living at Marblehead, Mass., and his brother-in-law, A. R. Morrison, of LeMars, with whom he had made his home since returning here, and these with a host of friends mourn his departure.
