WORTHY MAN SUMMONED IN PRIME OF LIFE
DEATH OF EDGAR A BRECOUNT
An illness extending over two months with cancer of the stomach resulted Sunday morning about 4 o'clock in the death of Edgar A Brecount at his home in Conover. Deceased was in his 46th year. The news of the death of Mr. Brecount was received here as everywhere where he is known with a feeling of deep sadness, as he was universally held in the highest regard as a man, a citizen, a friend, and a fraternity brother. He was a Mason of the thirty-second degree, being a member of Blue Lodge in Lena, the Chapter at St Paris, Coleman Commandery Knights Templar of Troy, the Scottish Rite fraternity at Dayton, and the Shriners at Cincinnati. Mr. Brecount was born in Conover, April 1, 1857, and lived all his life in that village. He was the youngest of three sons of Mr. and Mrs. John D Brecount. He had been associated with his brother, George, and Joseph Wolcott in the grain business at Conover for twenty years. At the last election he was made a director of the Piqua Home Telephone company. A wife and a daughter, beside scores of friends in Piqua, Miami county, and among the grain men of the country will mourn the loss of a worthy man. The funeral services Tuesday afternoon from the late residence in Conover will be conducted by the Masons. The interment will take place at the Conover cemetery.
Edger was born on 1 April 1857, and died 29 March 1903.
