Longueville Lad Is Laid To Rest
Victim of tragic accident at North Powder is buried in the cemetery at Haines
Vernon Longueville, young lad whose tragic death caused much sorrow in this locality last week, was laid to rest in the Haines cemetery Saturday, following services at the Methodist Church which were conducted by Miss Josie Blokland. Mrs. Delmar Bell, mother of the boy, was unable to attend the services, she having been in ill health for some time and the shock of the news caused a relapse. The lad was working in Jacob Brothers sawmill in North Powder and in some manner slipped into the cable which draws logs from the pond. As far as has been learned, no one witnessed the accident which so quickly snuffed out the young life.
Vernon was the son of Jack Longueville of the place and is survived by him, by his mother and by younger brother, Robert.
