Note: Wellsboro Agitator of Sept 17, 1889, p3 has: Mr. John M. Bosard The sad intelligence of the death of Mr. John M. Bosard was received here last Tuesday. Mr. Bosard died at Dunkirk, NY, last week Monday after being sick a short time with brain fever. He had been station agent for the Fall Brook Coal Company at Lawrenceville for several years, and he was highly esteemed as a citizen. About two weeks ago he went to Dunkirk, where he had secured a position as shipping clerk in a large factory. After working three days he was taken sick, and he sank rapidly until the hour of his death. Mr. Bosard’s family still reside at Lawrenceville, and their daughter Mamie being dangerously sick with fever, Mrs. Bosard was unable to attend her husband’s bedside. Mr. Bosard was 51 years of age. He was a member of the Masonic and Odd Fellows’ orders. The Nelson Lodge and Lawrenceville Encampment took charge of the funeral, which was held at Lawrenceville last Wednesday. The remains were interred at Nelson. [[Note: This was transcribed or scanned incorrectly in a version of the clipping placed on a popular web site that shown his age as 54. But the original '51' was apparently a typo too, his age at death was 41. His parents were married in Jan of 1848 and his mother born in 1828, so he could not have been born in 1838 as the obit implies. - wbt] * * * Wellsboro Agitator of Oct 1, 1889 has: Mr. John M.
