Fester, Arthur D., Jordan, the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Fester, formerly of Jordan, but now of St. Catharines, was reported as "missing" last week. And it was hoped that he would eventually turn up safely, either as a prisoner, or to his own lines; but this hope was dissipated on Tuesday, September 3, 1918 when Mr. and Mrs. Fester received a further telegram to the effect that he had been killed in action on August 8. Arthur Fester was known to quite a few of the young people of Grimsby, as his father had been manager of Jas. A. Livingston's Jordan farm for several years, and Arthur worked on the Livingston fruit farms, Grimsby, along with the late Pte. Elgin Felker who died of wounds on August 1.
