          "Uncle Jimmy" McGuire was born in Ireland, March 8, 1831, and came to the United States when he was twenty-five years old.  He settled in Shelby county shortly afterwards and took up farming as a vocation.  So enthusiastic did he become over the advantages of America that he soon sent for his brother, Charles, and later for his brothers, Edward  and  Stewart McGuire.  His father also joined him, but returned to Ireland in a short time.
          The marriage of Mr. McGuire and  Belle Talmer took place after he settled in this community and she died twenty-nine years ago.  The only surviving relatives are nieces and nephews.
          Funeral services were held at 2 o'clock this afternoon at the London M. E. church. Burial was in the cemetery at London.

          Edward McGuire, son of  Edward  and  Anna McGuire, was born in County Tyrone, Ireland, Feb 14, 1838, and departed this life Oct. 25, 1921, aged 83 years, 8 months and 11 days.
          His death came after a very short illness at the home of his niece, Mrs. Curtis Schloesser, where he had made his home for 12 years.
          Uncle Ed, as he was commonly known, came to this country when quite a young man, and had lived in this vicinity ever since coming to Indiana.  He joined the Brookfield Baptist church a number of years ago and had been a steadfast and faithful member unto the end of his life, having attended Sunday school and church the Sunday before taking his bed with his last sickness.  He leaves to mourn his death two brothers,  James  of London, and  Charles, of Darlington, Montgomery county, and nephews and nieces, also a number of great-nephews and nieces who were very dear to him.  Also a host of friends who will miss him very much, among whom is the family of  Lee Dake, whose family grew up thinking of Uncle Ed as a very true friend.  In fact, all who knew him will remember him as one to whom it was never too much trouble to lend his helping hand to a brother in need.
          Thus ends a life whose joy it was to do a kindly, loving act.
