Mack Williams, a Barber who has been quite ill with the grip and typhoid pneumonia for the past month or more, passed away at about 1 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. He was married on Thanksgiving day, 1911, to Miss Marjorie Couch, who with three small daughters, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alonzo Williams, several sisters and brothers, of Metz, survive him. A short funeral service was held for him at his late residence Wednesday forenoon, the Rev. W. R. Burton(?), officiating, after which his remains were taken to Metz, where they were laid to rest. Mr. Williams was a young man only about 24 (note: I have his age at 27) years of age and very active in the musical department of the Church of Christ, of which he was a member. He was also a prominent member of the Butler city band, which turned out to his funeral in a body.
