      Another Business Change


      Jacob H. Striffler has sold his interest in the farming implement business of J. H. Striffler & Co., to
      Hector McDermott of Grant township.

      The deal was made Feb 1st but on account of the serious sickness of Mrs. McDermott, Mr. McDermott will not assume control until the 1st of March.

      The new firm will be known as Striffler & McDermott. Albert Striffler who has been connected with the old firm will be the senior member of the new firm. Both Albert Striffler and Hector McDermott are met of good habits, perfectly reliable and in very way qualified to command the respect and confidence of the community. The CHRONICLE congratulates them upon entering such a prosperous field of work.

      Hector L. McDermott

      The following account of the death of Hector L. McDermott, whose passing was noted in the Chronicle last week, is taken from a Santa Anna, California, newspaper:

      Arrangements for services for Hector L. McDermott, who died at his home at 1209 North Main street last Friday afternoon, today were being delayed pending word of the return of his brother, H. (sic) M. McDermott, who is at Fuerte, Mexico, where he is general manager of the El Fuerte Smelting and Mining company.

      Two telegrams have been send advising him of his brother's death. As he has not answered, it is assumed by relatives that he is either at the mine, which is sixty or more miles from a telegraph office, or traveling in the district in the interest of his company.

      Decedent was vice-president of McDermott, Mount and Company, implement dealers at 318 West 4th street.He came here eight years ago from Eagle Rock, Cal., and entered business at the address given. Prior to locating at Eagle Rock in February 1912 the family resided at Cass City, Mich., where Mr. McDermott was president of the city council and where he was active in city and social activities.

      He was a Mason and Odd Fellow, holding membership in these lodges at Cass City. He was a member of the Santa Ana Kiwanis club and a teacher of the Mateer Bible class of the First Presbyterian church.

      During his business life here he won the confidence and esteem of associates and patrons as well as friends and acquaintances made in a social way.

      He had been suffering with paralysis for six months. He was born near Teeswater, Ontario, Canada, October 18, 1866, and came to the United States in 1881.

      Mr. McDermott is survived by his mother, Mrs. Margaret McDermott, 134 West Twentieth street; his widow, Mrs. Barbara McDermott; a daughter, Miss Belle McDermott, teacher in Greenville school; two sons, Alton, a pupil at the high school, and Justin, who is attending the Polytechnic school of Engineering at Oakland; three brothers, H.A. McDermott, Los Angeles; Hugh McDermott, Port Huron, Mich.; and Alan M. McDermott, Santa Ana.

      A Popular Wedding

      A very quiet home wedding was solemnized on Wednesday, Oct. 28, at high noon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Christ Striffler, living east and north of town, when their daughter, Barbara, was united in marriage to Hector L. McDermott. At the appointed hour, the bride and groom entered into the room unattended and in the presence of the immediate relatives and a few friends, the ceremony was performed by Rev. L.V. Soldan of the Evangelical church. The bride was gowned in a beautiful creation of white organdie and carried white chrysanthemums. The bride and groom are both popular young people of this vicinity, Mr. McDermott being well known as a business partner of the firm of Striffler and McDermott. He is also president of our city. They were the recipients of many beautiful and useful presents. After the ceremony the guests retired to the dining room where a sumptous wedding dinner was served. Mr. and Mrs. McDermott left on the afternoon train for a short wedding trip to Detroit, Tecumseh and Hillsdale. The out of town guests present were Mr. and Mrs. S.W. Striffler and daughter, Lillian, of Argyle, Mr. and Mrs. Hugh McDermott and little daughter of Grant, and Samuel LaFond of Bad Axe. The Chroncile extends hearty congratulations.
