In Reply to: Re: Robert W. & Minnie A. (Clapp) McGaw by Kim Gosnell of 1003

Minnie A. (Clapp) McGaw is from my SPERRY family line. I believe that she died April 1951 according to Robert's obit.

My scanner is not working and I only have a hard copy of the obit with other funeral notes. This is what the obit says:
"Robert McGaw Dies at 84 in Royal Oak
A native of England who spent three-quarters of a century in the village of Oshtemo died last night in Royal Oak, Mich., at the age of 84.
He was Robert McGaw, retired traveling salesman.
Minnie McGaw, to whom he had been married for 57 years, died in April of last year. The couple was married in Oshtemo in 1893, and observed their golden wedding anniversary there in 1943.
Mr. McGaw was born in Newcastle, England, Dec 3, 1867, and came to the United States with his parents in 1872. The family settled near Oshtemo. Robert McGaw and his wife lived a short time in Grand Rapids and Royal Oak, but spent most of their life together in Oshtemo.
Mr. McGaw had been in poor health since going to Royal Oak about three years ago.
He is survived by a daughter, Fern C., Royal Oak; two sons, Charles J. McGaw, Columbus, OH., and Robert, Royal Oak; two sisters, Mrs Byron Benson, Oshtemo, and Mrs. Mary Pray, Grand Rapids, and three grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held at the Truesdale chapel at 1:30 Thursday afternoon, with burial in Genesee Prairie Cemetery, Oshtemo."
