At Cranberry Isles

Funeral Service for Samuel C. Stover of Sullivan, Held Dec. 15.

On Sunday afternoon, Dec. 15, the funeral of Samuel C. Stover, who died at his home in Sullivan, Friday, Dec. 13, was held from the Union meetinghouse here, Rev. Mr. Tingley speaking words of comfort to the sorrowing relatives and friends.  Mr. Stover was not a native of this place, but came here when a youth and later married Georgianna, daughter of Robert and Lucy Ann Spurling, who survives him.  One daughter, Mrs. Ida Higgins and one grandchild also survive him.  Nine years ago Mr. Stover moved his family to Bar Harbor, where he worked for four years.  Then he moved to Sullivan, where he has since retired.  He was a carpenter by trade and while here he held public offices for years, serving as selectman and tax collector, and in other minor offices.  He was the mail carrier from this town for eight years, before motor boats were in use and he crossed over to Southwest Harbor in a row and sailboat, many times in bad storms.  He will be greatly missed by his family and friends, as he was always of a cheerful disposition, and many here will often speak and think kindly of him as a friend and obliging neighbor.
