F.L. Hitchcock Dead.

Letter carrier at Jamaica Plain Post-Office for More That a Score of Years.

Frank L. Hitchcock, for more than a score of years a carrier at the Jamaica Plain postoffice, died this morning at his home, 12 Thomas st. Although Mr Hitchcock had been in poor health for the past two years, the immediate cause of his death was pneumonia. The funeral services will be held Wednesday.

Mr Hancock was born April 19, 1858, in the old Gov Eustis mansion in Robury. He received his education in the public schools, and shortly after his graduation entered a Boston business house. When a young man he went to the Pacific coast, and there was married to Miss Cora Hale of Port Madison, Wash.

A year or two later he returned to Boston and entered the postal service. For a while he was at the central office, and then was shifted to station A. He remained there only a short time, however, being sent to the Jamaica Plain station, where he has been ever since. That was just 21 years ago this month

Mr Hitchcock was a member of Daniel Hersey lodge, I.O.O.F., and was actively connected with the letter carriers' association.

He leaves his wife and seven children, Frederick, William, Susan, Henry, Francis, Wesley and Alice, the latter just 4 years old. He has two sisters, Mrs Carrie Benson of Bernard, Me, and Mrs Susan Benson of West Somerville. His brother is Fred Hitchcock of Newton.

John L. McKenzie Dead.

Was Employe(sic) of the Globe for 30 Years and Held Many Positions of Trust.

John Liberty McKenzie, one of the oldest employes of the Globe composing room died at 3:30 yesterday afternoon at his home, 155 Amory st, Jamaica Plain, after an illness of about one year.

Mr McKenzie was born in Chicago 54 years ago, and came to Boston about 1881, going to work for the Globe, where he has remained ever since. He was a skillful and conscientious workman, and not only was he true to every trust that was reposed in him, but his judgement was so superior, and his charity was so genuine and well placed, that his fellow-workmen looked to him for frequent counsel and reposed in him many of the greater responsibilities.

Mr McKenzie was a member of Boston typographical union 18, Franklin typographical society, Boston Globe relief society, Hobab lodge, I.O.O.F., of Dorchester; Mendell brotherhood of Boylston Congregational church of Jamaica Plain, and the Globe savings fund and loan association, of which he was for many years treasurer. He took especial delight in his connection with the Boston singing club and with the church choir.

He leaves a wife and daughter, to both of whom he was greatly devoted. His mother, MRs Marie Soboda, and a younger brother of Cedar Rapids, Ia, also survive him.

Funeral from residence, 155 Amory st, Jamaica Plain, at 2 p.m. Monday. Services at Boylston Congregational church, corner Boylston and Amory sts at 2:30.
