James Slavin died Friday last at the City Hospital, where he was taken in the morning suffering from pneumonia.
Deceased was teamster in the city's employ and for 12 years was a teamster at the Kelley-Spear yard. He was a steady and industrious man, well liked by employers and citizens generally. He was married in 1905 to a Miss Annie James, who is left by his death a widow with three young children. Mr. Slavin resided with his family on Lincoln St. He was a native of New Brunswick and according to the figures on the marriage return in 1905 he was 35 years of age, but this is believed to be an error, his comrades stating that he was 45 or 48 years old. He leaves a brother, Thomas, who resides on Middle St. Deceased was suffering for some months past with lung trouble, aggravated by exposure during his work on Blind Crossing, it is said, and his condition was so low on his arrival at the hospital that the case was hopeless of recovery.
Bath (Maine) Independent, November 25, 1916.
