In the death of J.H. Breed at his home near Vashon at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12, 1914, the community lost one of its most estimable citizens. He had lived here for ten years, and by his generous acts and willingness to always help a neighbor he made a host of friends who will miss him very much.
The funeral was held from his late residence, being conducted by the Modern Woodmen of America, of which organization he was a member. Interment was held in the Vashon Cemetery.
