Malcolenson McAlpine was born July 24th, 1877, near Bothwell, Ontario, and died August 16th 1926. He was married November 20th, 1918, to Miss Caroline Wilson, and to that union were born two daughters: Isabell (age six) and Ruby (age three) who with the widow, four brothers, two sisters and a host of friends are left to mourn, realizing we have lost a friend and neighbor highly respected and loved by all. It was also evident by his conversation he had passed from death unto life, his love for the Baptist people was evident. Although he had never united with the church his mind was with them, but feeling his unworthiness so keenly, never was given courage to offer himself to the church taking comfort in the assembly of the saints, going through this life as a guard on the outside, defending the truth and living an exemplary life among men. We mourn, but not as those who have no hope, believing that for him to live was Christ and to die was gain. May the blessing of the Lord be with all friends and enable them to say, Thy will be done. I tried to comfort the friends at the funeral, after which all that was mortal was laid to rest in the Rickard Cemetery near by. George L Weaver
