A, McPherson, Well Known Grocer Dies After Long Illness
This story was published by The Ypsilanti Daily Press on Monday, August 5, 1912. Alpheous McPherson of the grocery firm of McPherson & House died at his residence 46 East Cross Street Sunday, August 4, 1912. He had been seriously indisposed for a year and a half and though he had been about the store considerably, he had not been able to do very much business during this period. Mr. McPherson was born at St. Anne’s, Ontario, sixty-eight years ago, and for the last nineteen years of that time has resided in Ypsilanti and has been engaged in business here for seventeen years. His wife, a daughter, Mrs. Arthur E. House and a sister survive him. The funeral will be held from the residence at half after two o’clock on Wednesday afternoon.
