William Savage

The East Liverpool Tribune

William Savage, aged 73 years, died of Bright's disease early Saturday morning (Feb. 24, 1906) at the home of his son, Arthur J. Savage, in Vine street. He had been in failing health for sometime but his condition was not regarded as serious until last Thursday.

Mr. Savage was born in England and came to this county in 1879, locating first near Sharon, Pa. The following year he went to Salineville. For the past 10 years he had been a resident of East Liverpool. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and took an active interest in all religious work. He enjoyed the esteem of all those who knew him. He is survived by three sons, as follows: Arthur J. Savage, of this city; George and William Savage, of Salineville.

The funeral services will be held this afternoon from the son's residence, the Rev. T. W. Lane of the First Methodist Episcopal church officiating.
