    • (June 3, 1921
      The members of the Limestone Lodge FAM gathered at the Masonic Hall on Sunday afternoon last to pay their last respects to Brother James A. Edgecomb who passed away on Friday evening last. James A. Edgecomb would have reached his 74th birthday had he lived until Sunday but he died two days before at the age of 73 years, 11months and 28 Days.
      He was born at Saco, Maine on the 5th of June 1847 and moved to Limestone in 1876 where he lived until his death. Some years ago he was stricken with a shock which incapacited him from doing his farm work, but though so afflicted he patiently bore his cross. About two weeks ago he was stricken again and never recovered passing into rest on Friday the 3rd of June.
      He raised to the subline deree of a master mason by the Eastern Frontier Lodge of Fort Fairfield and when the Limestone Lodge was organized, transferred to that lodge. He was accorded full Masonic Orders by his brothers. The masonic male quartet rendered three beautiful selections and the Chaplain spoke words of comfort to the sorrowing relatives. He leaves to mourn their loss besides a widow, a twin sister, six sons and two daughters. Beautiful flowers spoke of the love and affection his friends and relatives had for him.
      We would not call him back to mar his glory with selfish earth's plain toys of common day but stumble and bear life's lonely shadows content that he had found celestial ray. And in his glorious rest we take our comfort. Until we meet in the reuniting day, then earth and earthly joys shall be illumined. And wake anew to life's Eternal Day.)
