    From undated newspaper item:


    House Burned At Harvey Station

    (Special to The Telegraph)

     Harvey Station, Feb 6 -- The dwelling house of Arthur Burrell, situated near the station, was completely destroyed by fire on Friday forenoon.   The fire started in an upstair room.   The walls, being of wood, burned very quickly.   Mr Burrell and several neighbors and parties working at the station were quickly at the fire and there being little wind succeeded in saving the barn which was only a few feet away, but most of the furniture and household goods were burned.   The house, which had been built only a short time, was not quite finished and was not insured.   Mr Burrell, who has thus been turned out into the winter with his wife and large family, is likely to get a house from Miss Glendenning.

    He first married Mary Edith Elizabeth "Ada" Rosborough, daughter of John Rosborough & Mary Williams, 15 Jul 1908 in Harvey Presbyterian Church Records. Born 25 Dec 1887 in Acton. Died 12 Feb 1983 in Swan Haven Nursing Home, Harvey. Buried in Acton Cemetery. They were divorced.
