Va., died shortly after 12 o'clock Saturday night (Aug. 19, 1906) at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Mary Williams, at Wilmerding, Pa., of the infirmities of old age. He was 71 years of age. The remains were brought to East Liverpool last evening and taken to the home of a son, Elmer Huff 271 Third street. The funeral arrangements have not been made.

Besides Elmer and Mrs. Williams the other surviving children are Mrs. Porter, M. Prichard, of Lisbon, Ohio; Mrs. Alfred Hamblin, of Chicago, and the Rev. Will H. Huff, evangelist, of Sioux City, Ia. A brother of the deceased, Isaac Huff, residing back of Newell, also survives.

All of the children will be here to attend the funeral, Rev. Mr. Huff was conducting revival Meetings in Georgia when his father died. He will arrive this morning.

The deceased returned four weeks ago from a visit with Mrs. Hamblin, in Chicago, and went at once to visit Mrs. Williams. Upon his return from Chicago he complained of feeling sick and was taken violently ill Saturday afternoon. His wife, who was Rebecca Deaver, died 18 years ago.
