He is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Hattie Clark of East Liverpool, and two sons, George Glass of Toronto and Wm. J. Glass of Wellsville. His wife preceded him in death two years ago.
The body was brought to this city this morning and taken to the home of his son, Wm. J. Glass of 1520 Commerce street, where funeral services will be conducted at 3 o’clock Wednesday afternoon. Rev. West, pastor of the Free Methodist church of Martin’s Ferry, O., will officiate. Interment will be made in Spring Hill cemetery.
