  • Notes 
    • The many friends of James Howlett, of Winterbourne, a gentleman well and favorably known not only in Elmira where he was born and reared but also throughout the township of Woolwich and the County of Waterloo, in the respective councils he had served as a member for a number of years, will regret to hear of his demise. He died at his residence last Wednesday of heart disease after having suffered therefrom occasionally for several years. As a public man deceased was highly respected and his honorable precepts were appreciated. As a citizen he enjoyed the respect of the community. He was a successful farmer and stock breeder and had acquired a fine homestead. He was the second son of the late Wm. Howlett and was raised on the farm now occupied by Mr. Aaron A. Weber, one mile east of Elmira. He had reached the age of 59 years and 2 months and leaves a widow two sons and one daughter to mourn the loss of a kind husband and provident father. The funeral which was largely attended took place last Saturday afternoon when his remains were interred in the Elmira Cemetery.
