  • Notes 
    • Obituary. At the residence of her son-in-law, Hugh Cant, Galt, Ontario, on the 29th of May, 1873, Margaret, Wife of Duncan Ferguson, Ruling Elder of the U.P. Congregation, Galt. In the 69th Year of her Age. She left home in her usual health to visit some of her friends at a distance of two or three miles. Having concluded her visit, on her way home, she was thrown from her carriage, and sustained a compound fracture of the left wrist, and, at the same time, such a severe shock to her nervous system, generally, that her injuries ended fatally eight days afterwards. She was the daughter of eminently pious parents, and during her early training under them, the seeds of an earnest and consistent piety were implanted which ripened with the growth of years. Her life was one exemplary of the growth of the most beautiful Christian graces. A true friend, an affectionate wife, a tender and loving mother, her influence was strongly felt for good by all who came in contact with her. With the humility that distinguishes those who have learned the lesson of submissiveness to the will of God, she could not help being a blessing to all about her. Her children all from their early years bore the impress of her character. Three of them preceded her in their departure to the better land; two are left to "call her blessed." Her husband's loss is great, but he knows that her gain is greater. The writer was long an inmate of her house, and gladly bears witness to her Christian worth. Her loss is mourned, while her memory is held dear, by many a one beyond the circle of her household. During the entire period of her illness, her suffering was so acute as to prevent much religious conversation beyond a few words. The lesson of her death-bed is that the time of "health" is the time for the consideration of those questions that concern eternity and the soul. When she was spoken to, all she could say was: "I am unable to speak much now: all I can do is to resign myself to the will of my Lord." Hers was a resignation which a life of devotedness to her Saviour had enabled her to make. "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord." W.H.R.1a
