  • Notes 
    • Death of a Very Old Resident of Beverly - There passed to his rest on Wednesday evening last, one of the very eldest and most respected residents of the north part of Beverly in the person of Mr. Wm. Anderson. Mr. Anderson was in his 87th year, and up to about a week ago enjoyed good health. He settled on the farm where he died in about 1831, the country then being typical of Beverly in those days and requiring all the manhood that anyone possessed to cheerfully hew out the comfortable home which he enjoyed in his later days. Mr. Anderson was married nearly 61 years ago to Miss Annie McMullen, who still, in her 84th year, survives him. Of the family there survive, Mr. Wm. Ira Anderson, who resides on the homestead, Mr. Nelson Anderson, and Mrs. Wm. Scrimger, of Galt. Three of the children of the family died many years ago. The funeral will take place today (Friday) at 1 o'clock pm, from the residence, Clyde Road, to Mount View Cemetery.
