Duff, Robert
Again death has entered and taken from our midst one who, though old and geeble was dear to the hearts of many.  Although Mr. Robert Duff had been in failing health for some time past it was not until a week or ten days ago that the end was anticipated by the anxious watchers.  His death was the result of the infirmities of old age and the end was calm and peaceful. 

Robert Duff, aged 84 years, 1 month and 14 days, was born at Belfast Ireland, December 11, 1820; came to America at the age of 26 years and resided in Canada for a number of years.   In the early 50's he settled in Clinton County, Missouri and in 1858 married Elizabeth Pierce, who died in 1882.  Three sons and six daughters survive him, all of whom, except one son in California, one in Oklahoma and one daughter in Missouri were with him during his last sickness.  He came to Montana in 1901; died Wednesday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. L.R. Terrett.   The body was shipped today to Keytesville, Mo., for interment, accompanied by Mr. C.R. Duff and Miss Belle Duff.  The sympathy of the entire community will be extended to the relatives in their sad bereavement.
