|EAST SIDE|Exiria "Exivia" [Francis Xavier] Navarre, son of Alexis Navarre, one of the five brothers who rendered such valuable service to the government during the war of 1812, died at his home on the Bay Shore, yesterday afternoon [Wednesday, February, 7, 1906] after an illness of over a year, aged 69 years. He had been failing in health for the past five years, and for a year past had been confined to the house, a great sufferer. He is survived by his wife, to whom he was married thirty-five years ago, and two children, Mrs. Guy Houck and Miss Jennie Navarre.
Mr. Navarre was well known to residents of Toledo, and his home, which was of historical interest, was frequently visited by persons who were desirous of learning something of the early history of the Maumee Valley. The house in which Mr. Navarre was born and in which he lived all his life, is located near the site of the old Indian village at Presque Isle. The farm was a grant from the government to his father, Alexis Navarre, as a recognition of his loyalty and service to his country, each of the Navarre brothers having received such a grant after the war of 1812.
The deceased was of a genial disposition, fond of outdoor life, and was a famous hunter in the earlier days.
The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon [Thursday, February 9, 1906] at 2:30 o'clock from the residence. Rev. A. M. Rihbany to officiate. Interment will be in the North Oregon cemetery.
