(Published in the Kings County Record on 1 May, 1908)

The death of G. Lester McCully took place at 9 a.m. Tuesday evening at his home, Portage. He was a farmer, well and favorably known all over this section as a man of sterling character. His death leaves a gap in the community that will not soon be filled. He is survived by a widow and one brother, William, of Petitcodiac.

The late Mr. McCully was a Liberal in politics and for several years sat in the municipal council for the parish of Cardwell. He was ill for seven months and last Friday night suffered a stroke of paralysis from which he never rallied. He was 62 years old. The funeral service will be held at his late residence, at 2 p.m., Friday. Rev. Dr. Rogers, of Sussex, will officiate. The lower Baptist cemetery will be the place of burial.
