    • "The End Of A Well Spent Life

      By the death at the residence of her son, Mr. Nelson Anderson, in her 90th year, Beverly loses one of it's oldest and most respected residents. Mrs. Anderson's maiden name was Annie Mullen, and though aged as she was, was a native Canadian, having been born in the township of Ancaster in 1805. She was a settler's daughter and when she married her late husband, Mr. W.T. Anderson, who died a little over five years ago, accepted cheerfully the toils of those days. For a few years after their marriage they lived in Flamboro, but her husband wanted his own land, his own farm, and though the difficulties seemed almost insuperable, they took up land in the 10th concession of Beverly, near where now is Clyde. There were no roads or means of travel to reach necessary points, Galt only about four miles off and Dundas over twenty, with no means of reaching except on foot through the bush. In 1832 when they stood in their door-way of their little log house, there was nothing but bush outside their little clearing, and as the evening shades were closed in, the howl of the wolf would be heard from many points and only stout hearts could listen without fear. But use and toil soon made these but the common events of their lives and as the axe was wielded and other settlers came in the sun soon shown on broad fields, and prosperity and peace took the place of heavy toil and anxiety. Six children were born to them of whom three survive, viz.: - Messrs. Wm. Ira and Nelson of Beverly, and Mrs. Wm. R. Scrimger, of Galt. The funeral of the aged lady took place on Friday last to the cemetery here, a very large number of friends from all sections attending."
