Obituary from the Daily Gleaner, Saturday August 20, 1927 "Death came suddenly last night to George L. Pugh, of Nashwaaksis, as he was returning from Cape Breton with his daughter, Mrs. George McKnight and her family who had been spending the holidays with Mr. McKnight. The details concerning Mr. Pugh's death are meager and it is not know whether he died in the automobile or at the farm house forty miles the other side of Amherst, N.S. where he was taken by Mrs. McKnight and from where she telephoned her brothers here. The late Mr. Pugh was one of the best known men in Nashwaaksis, he was at he the time of his death, one of the valuators for the municipality of York and at different times held various positions of trust with the county. He was respected by all who knew him and his sudden passing will be learned of with regret.
Serepta Ann Carle was known as Seppie. She worked in the cotton mill in Marysville, NB where she boarded with Horace Pugh. She is buried in the Douglas Rural Cemetery in York County (also known as the Pickard Cemetery).
