James Henry Page Crosses Great Divide
James Henry Page, for twenty years a resident in the Corralitos district, passed away in the Watsonville hospital at an early hour this morning. Mr. Page had been in the hospital undergoing treatment for the past two weeks and while it was felt that he could not recover, still his death came as a shock to this family and many friends. Mr. Page was one of the best known fruit men in the Corralitos section; he was an honorable and upright man, trusted and respected by all who knew him.
The deceased was born in England and was 82 years, 6 months and 8 days old at the time of his passing. He is survived by two sons, Arthur H. Page, of Corralitos, and Harold G. Page of Cleveland, Ohio. He is also survived by a brother and sister in Lincoln, Nebraska. He was a member of the local post of the G.A.R.
The funeral will take place from the Burland undertaking parlors, Wednesday, May 10, at 2:30 p.m. Interment will be in the Odd Fellows' cemetery.
