    Obituary, uncited
    Geo Armstrong Dead (handwritten 1926)
    Little Current has lost another of her prominent citizens in the person of Mr Geo Armstrong. Mr Armstrong came to the Manitoulin about 44 years ago and soon after married and after a few years settled on a farm on Sheguiandah Road. Afterwards he bought a much better farm at Green Bay and there he prospered being a careful and successful farmer. After his family was grown up he decided to sell his farm and go into store keeping at Sheguiandah. The burning of the store however put an end to this project but some time after he bought R. Maltas' business in Little Current and carried on quite a thriving business till his death which occurred last Friday at the hospital Toronto where he had gone for treatment a few weeks before. He leaves a wife and a large family who with the exception of a son and two daughters were present for the funeral.
    During his life in Little Current he won the confidence and esteem of the people and for a few years he bore the burdens of public office. His funeral service on June 7th was largely attended Rev Munro of Sudbury officiating; after which he was taken to Mountain View Cemetery for interment. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the whole community in their sorrows.
