Page 6: SYDNEY - February 7 - Jno. A. MARR, who was found dead yesterday in a Boston tenement house, was a native of Mabou, Cape Breton, and was 43 years of age. He lived in this city for two or three years, being employed by Dominion Iron and Steel company as a pattern maker. He went to Boston a few months ago. His wife and family of six children are still living here. Before coming to Sydney, MARR and family lived in Bath. Me. He belonged to the Oddfellows' Lodge there and they are having [the] remains taken to that city for internment.

Page 9: The dead body of John A. MARR, of Sydney, was found, face downward, in a bath tub on the fourth floor of the tenement house at 130 Dart street, where he had been lodging last night. As the body was partly clothed, and from the fact that his bed had been opened, it is thought that he had retired, felt faint and gone to the bathroom for water. Medical Examiner Stedman was summoned after the finding of the body by Miss Stuart, the landlady, but from his superficial examination all thought of foul play or suicide was dispelled. It is said that the man has a wife and six children living in Sydney.

Five of the latter live at home and two - Elisha and Robert - are in the west.

The very sudden death of Samuel MASON, justice of the peace, at St. Margaret's Bay, about ten miles from Bowser's, occurred on Saturday.

Saturday morning he complained to his wife that one of the chills was coming on. He sat down on a chair and Mrs. MASON went to the stove to get some hot water. When she returned she was horrified to find her husband dead. He was a farmer and very well to do. He leaves besides his widow, three brothers. The funeral will take place to-morrow afternoon at three o'clock.

The Evening Mail, Tuesday, 24 April 1906, p. 10:
The death occurred shortly after midnight last night, at his residence, 51 Seymour street, of John McCROW, one of the best known men in this city. The news of his death will be received with deep regret in the wide circle of his friends, and comes as a sad shock to them, owing to the fact that his illness was a very short one, dating only from Friday last. However, it became almost immediately apparent that his symptoms were such as to cause grave solicitude and he rapidly grew worse, death as stated, supervening shortly after midnight last night. Mr. McCROW was a native of Aytown, Berwickshire, Scotland, and was in the sixty-ninth year of his age. He came to Halifax in 1862, as a member of Battery 5, Fifteenth Brigade, Royal Artillery, and during the forty-four years of his residence here came to be regarded as one of our most useful men, adding to business acumen the sterling qualities of character which win and retain friends. He was a most kindly and humane man, delighting in doing good quietly and unostentatiously, and the number of those to whom he has lent a helping hand will never be known. Mr. McCROW went in a provisional battalion as captain at the time of the Riel rebellion, and did gallant service. He was a member of the society of Royal British Veterans, a past master of Virgin Lodge Free Masons, joining the Grand Lodge in 1876; was a member of Murray Division, Sons of Temperance, and a past grand worthy associate of the Grand Division as well as a member of the National Division. He lent his influence always to the promotion of good causes and will be greatly missed in the various organizations of which he was a member. He is survived by his wife and daughter, Miss Ella McCROW. The funeral will take place from his late residence, 51 Seymour street, on Thursday, at 4 p.m.
