late Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Salter, well known early settlers of that district,
and he was the eldest of a family of ten children. In 1907 Mr. Salter moved

1938 when he came back to Parrsboro and purchased a residence here. He was a
life long member of Minas Lodge, A.F. and A.M. No. 67, and was the holder of
the Fifty Year Jewel. He is survived by his wife, formerly Miss Ethel
MacDonald of Amherst; two daughters, Mrs. Anne Seamone of Amherst and
