    The passing away of Mr. Carman had made the honor roll of old timers smaller, and many in Sumas and Nooksack will miss his presence from their ranks. He was born in Springfield, Illinois, on September 25, 1848, and celebrated his eightieth birthday a week ago. He was raised in Illinois and lived for some time in Missouri and Nebraska before coming to Nooksack 39 years ago, where he was active in the building of the older buildings here and in Sumas.

    Of a former marriage [Melisa Towns] he was the father of seven children and was later married to Katherine E. Bulmer on July 4, 1892, in Nooksack, and leaves to mourn his loss his wife, one daughter, Mrs. Margaret Johnson, of Sumas, and two sons, John W. of Klamath Falls, Oregon, and Thomas B., of Nooksack, fourteen grandchildren and twenty-two great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be conducted at the Advent Christian church next Sunday, December 23, at 10:30 p. m., and interment will be made in the Nooksack cemetery.
