Allen of Englehart, and Mrs. O'Connor, of Toronto. Also two sons – William of Dalhousie and Peter of Chalk River, and four daughters – Mrs. Allan Izatt of North Sherbrooke, Mrs. Pudd, of Souris, Man., Mrs. Bulloch of Reston, Man., and Mrs. Charles Caldwell of Watson's Corners.

Little at the home of Allan Izatt, and interment made at the Highland Line Cemetery, the pallbearers being neighbors and intimate friends of the family. The floral offerings were a spray from Mrs. John Geddes, wreaths from Mrs. Howard McInnes and Mrs. John Wilson. The sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved ones. – Era.
