DEATH OF PETER NAVARRE

THE FAMOUS SCOUT OF THE WAR OF 1812

The funeral obsequies of the late Peter Navarre, the veteran of 1812, took place at St. Louis (French) Catholic Church, on Sixth street, East Toledo, Saturday afternoon, under the auspices of the Maumee Valley Pioneer Society. At 9 o'clock in the morning a meeting of this Society was held at the office of Kent, Newton & Pugsley, when the necessary arrangements for the funeral were made, which was appointed for the afternoon. This brief time for preparation, of course, accounts for the comparatively small number in attendance. A Committee on Resolutions was appointed, consisting of Gen. John Hunt, Henry Bennett, Esq., and Capt. Chas. Kent, who are to report at some future time. The following gentlemen were also selected to act as pall-bearers: Mayor W. W. Jones, Gen. John Hunt, Judge John Fitch, Judge F. L. Nichols, Alderman Kent Seaman, Capt. Chas. Kent, Capt. John J. Manor, Henry Bennett, Esq., Mayor Brigham, Esq., and Russell Daniels. At the appointed hour the pall-bearers and other members of the Pioneer Society, a detachment of the Wallbridge Zouaves, under command of Lieutenant William Cuddey, the Union Silver Band, the relatives of the deceased, and quite a number of friends, assembled at Mrs. Roger's Temperance Hall, where Mr. Navarre was stopping at the time of his death, to view for the last time all that was mortal of the dead hero, and escort him to his final earthly resting place. The casket which contained his remains was of polished walnut, without ornamentation, excepting, a silver plate bearing the name and age of the deceased. It was draped with the American flag, fastened thereto with bands of crape.
