Hebert, Moses (1840 - 1 Oct. 1907)
ANSWERS THE FINAL SUMMONS
Moses Hebert of the Town of Unity Dies of Cancer
Another old settler has answered the final summons and gone to his reward. Tuesday afternoon Moses Hebert an old and well known resident of the town of Unity passed away after an illness of about six months. The direct cause of his death was a cancer of the lower lip. About a year ago after treating with a specialist it seemed to have disappeared but about six months ago it re-appeared in a much more aggravated form than at first and he was advised by the local physicians to arrange his earthly affairs for he was beyond Medical help.
He sold his farm and bought a residence property in the village but the family had not yet moved in from the farm when the final summons came.
Mr. Hebert was a hard working, honest and upright citizen and his departure will be regretted by his many friends and acquaintences.
The funeral was held from the Colby Catholic church at 10 a. m. Thursday, interment being made in the Unity Cemetery (Obituary next week.)
