Mr. and Mrs. NEPHEW had come to Grayling on business and were at the Court house at about 3:30 o'clock and Mr. NEPHEW had just stepped into the County Treasurer's office and was making inquiry of Mr. FERGUSON concerning some land when he swooned and fell to the floor. He was helped into a chair and a physician called, but he had passed away. Mrs. NEPHEW was with him and had gone into the Register of Deeds office accross the hall.
Alfred Burton NEPHEW was born in Midland, August 6, 1880, where his boyhood was spent. On October 13, 1901 he was united in marriage to Cora M.

Mr. NEPHEW served as road commissioner of Lovells township, and for several years past has been treasurer of the Lovells School District. Fishing was one of his favorite pastimes, and he enjoyed hunting small game.

KUHLMAN of Michelson Memorial church will conduct the services, and the pall bearers are old Lovells friends, Roger CAID, Clarence STILLWAON, William T. MILLER, Alfred and Dewey HANNA and Ray DUBY.
