When the late Leslie McLoed died in Los Angeles, it was his request that he be cremated and his ashes be brought back to his Indiana home. On Tuesday of last week his brother, Oliver McLeod (sic) and his two sisters, Mrs. Davis and Miss Sophronia and some other relatives brought the ashes, which were in a small copper box and interred them in the family lot in Maple Ridge. An older brother, William McLoed, requested that his ashes after death should be scattered on Puget Sound. Mr. Oliver McLeod lives north of Crawfordsville. The ashes were sent from LA by registered mail and required the filling out and signing of 3 sets of blanks.
