    • At the family residence, Emmerling Avenue, Walhalla, N.D., on November 9, 1921, from heart failure, John S. Huffman, aged seventy years and three months.   
      John S. Huffmanwas born near the city of Napanee, Ontario, on the 12th day of August, 1851, where he lived until he was about thirty years of age, when he came to North Dakota, in 1882.  He did not stay here then, however, but went to Winnipeg where he remained for a year, returning to this state in 1883, and settled on a farm in the Crown Centre district.  In 1885 he married Miss Martha Elford, and they have lived in the farm ever since, until last year, when they moved into Walhalla.   To them were born: Harry, now of Regina, Ada, also of Regina, Willard, Kenneth, Edith, Johnand Alberta.   Besides the wife and children, those left to mourn his death are three sisters: Mrs. S. Bell, of San Jose, Calif., Mrs. Joyce, of Napanee, Ont., and Mrs. Kyler, of Morven, Ont., and one brother, Dr. R. H. Huffman, of Walhalla.  These have the sincere and heartfelt sympathy of the entire community in the sudden death of Mr. Huffman.    The funeral took place Friday afternoon, under the charge of the Masonic lodge of Walhalla.   Rev. R. E. Vater, of Dickinson, a former pastor, preached the sermon, and he was assisted by Rev. Lyle D. Stone, of the Walhalla Presbyterian Church.   The funeral was one of the largest ever held in Walhalla.  The flowers were handsome, especially those from the family, the Masonic and O.E.S. lodges.   The services held at the grave were beautiful and impressive.  The pall-bearers were: John Fisk, George Best, Fred Hurley, William VanSlyck, W. R. McMurray and Sam Harvey.    The friends and relatives from a distance were: Harry and Mrs. Isaacs from Regina, Fred and Russell Elford, brothers-in-law, and Mr. and Mrs. Hinch, cousins from Morden and Mr. and Mrs. Souch and daughter, Eva, of Langdon.   Masons from over the county generally were in attendance to show the last respect to their departed brother.   The Walhalla Mountaineer, Nov. 18, 1921.
