Casualty List of Paris High – Private Harry Hugh Carroll is Reported Killed in Action

PARIS, Sept. 19 – Another well known and popular young man has made the supreme sacrifice, in the person of Private Harry Hugh (Red) Carroll, word to this effect being received yesterday morning by his sister, Mrs. William Kendrick, with whom he resided when he enlisted. The fateful message stated that he had been killed in action on September 2. Private Carroll joined the 84th Battalion in August, 1915 and went overseas in June of the following year. Shortly after arrival in the Old Country he was transferred to the 75th Battalion, and went to France with that unit in December, 1916. Deceased was born in Paris 34 years ago, and was the second son of the late Patrick Carroll, and resided here all his life, where he received his education. He was a member of the Congregational Church and Brotherhood, and also of Court Harmony, A.O.F. He was a valued employee of Penmans Ltd., and for the past 17 years had been engaged in the boarding room of No. 2 mill. “Red” as he was familiarly known, was a very popular young man, and his smiling face will be much missed by a large circle of acquaintances. He leaves four sisters and two brothers; Mrs. William Kendrick and Mrs. Charles Nicks of Paris, Mrs. George Carey of Detroit Mich., Mrs. John Hymus of North Tonawanda N.Y.; Peter of Paris, and Roy of Pontiac Mich., to whom the sympathy of the community will be extended in their sorrow.
