William Henry Erswell, 74, of 24 Gould Street, a retired chief commissary steward in the navy, died at his home Tuesday, after a long illness. A native of Skowhegan, Me., he first came to Newport during the World War. He returned to this city about eight years ago.
Erswell was a member of the Skowhegan American Legion Post, Veterans of Foreign Wars; Newport Lodge of Elks; and a Masonic Lodge in Pekin, Ill.
He leaves his wife, Mrs Rose Zimmerman Erswell; a son Raymond L Erswell, who is in the navy; a daughter, Mrs Marie Violette of this city; and three grandchildren.
