Uploader's Notes: Whittaker, Private Farley Thurs 10 Jan 1918 Fort William Daily Times JournalNews came this morning that number 820867 Private Farley Whittaker, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Whittaker, of Flint, died of wounds at a casualty clearing station in France. The young soldier who was twenty-three years of age was a graduate of Port Arthur Collegiate Institute and went overseas with Colonel McKenzie's Battalion. His parents reside at Flint and with them lives a younger brother Earl. Two sisters reside in Port Arthur, the elder, Miss Rita, being in the post office, Miss Pearl Whittaker being in the Office of City Treasurer W.J. Gurney. Both these young ladies have very many friends at the head of the lakes who will sympathize with them most sincerely in their sore bereavement. They leave for Flint tomorrow morning to be with their parents in the hours of trial. Yesterday morning, John Whittaker, of Flint, received a telegram from the Militia Department at Ottawa, saying that his son was dangerously ill and this morning a second message came that the boy had died of wounds.
