Aaron Guthrie

The East Liverpool Tribune

Aaron Guthrie died yesterday afternoon (Apr. 20, 1906) at 1 o'clock at the city hospital after being ill three months with dropsy. Mr. Guthrie was taken ill while traveling for the American Queensware company and soon after his return home in February he was removed to the city hospital. His wife was in San Francisco at the time, but she left for home immediately and was at her husband's bedside during his illness and at the time of his death..

Mr. Guthrie was well known all over the city and held in high esteem by a large circle of friends. He was a member of the Elks and Eagles, and the local members of those orders will attend the funeral services to be held Monday forenoon at 10:30 o'clock at the St. Aloysius church, and which will be conducted by the Rev. Father Mahon.

The body was removed from the city hospital to the home of deceased's sister, Mrs. Ellen Vervin, in Illinois avenue.

Mr. Guthrie was 40 years of age and is survived by his wife, formerly Miss Susan Vervin, of this city, and one son, Charles. He was born in Northumberland county, England, and at one time worked in a store in Newcastle, that country. He came to East Liverpool in the eighties and started to work in the decorating shop of a pottery. This employment he continued in until within the last year or so when he accepted the position of traveling salesman for the American Queensware company.
