Arthur Huntington Dies Early Monday At Local Hospital
Arthur Huntington of Moody, a resident of this village since the early settlement days, died shortly before 6 o'clock Monday morning in Mercy General Hospital following a ten days' illness. He had been in failing health for more than a year. Death was attributed to pneumonia.
Funeral services were held Wednesday morning from the home at Moody at 10:80 o'clock, and at 11 o'clock at St. Thomas Episcopal Church. Rev. James Mahagan, rector, officiated, burial was in St. Thomas Cemetery.
He was born at Vermontville, N. Y., on September 23, 1878, the son of Henry E. Huntington and Ellen Perigo. As a boy in his teens he came to the rough lumbering community which was yet to develop into the village of Tupper Lake. One of his early jobs was carrying the mall from Faust to Moody and Hatch's Hotel near Bog River Falls at the, head of Big Tupper Lake. No road existed between this community and the upper reaches of the lake then, and the mail was hauled by rowboat up the lake.
At the age of 19 he married Miss Delia McBride, daughter of pioneer Tupper Lake family. Through the greater part of his life he followed the carpenters trade. About 24 years ago he moved to Vermont and engaged in farming there until 1918, when he returned to Moody to resume carpentering. He worked for Branch and Callanan, builders, for many years.
Surviving, besides Mrs. Huntington, are two sons, Leland, of Constable, and Edward, of Moody; two daughters, Mrs. Madeline Harrington of Faust and Mrs Frances Amlott of Whippleville, N. Y.; and two brothers, George, of Moody, and Gilman Annis of Buchanan, of Buchanon Mich. The latter was adopted by the Annis family when a boy. There are also 14 grandchildren surviving.
