  • Notes 
    • Death of Robert Smuck - Well-Known South Dumfries Farmer Passed Away on Saturday - Robert Smuck, well-known and highly respected farmer of South Dumfries township, passed away on Saturday morning at 7.15 o'clock, death being due to the effects of a stroke which he sustained a little over a week previous to his demise. Deceased was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Smuck, and was born on the farm on which he died. The late Mr. Smuck, who was 71 years of age, had been in failing health for a number of years, suffering a slight stroke two years ago. Of a genial, kind hearted disposition, he was much esteemed by a wide circle of friends, many of whom had enjoyed the warm hospitality of a social evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Smuck in days gone by. Deceased was a member of Dolman Lodge, I.O.O.F., and attended Knox United Church. He is survived by one son, Currie, his wife having predeceased him almost two years ago. Also surviving are three sisters, viz.: Mrs. George Cross, Mrs. Crandall and Miss Adelia Smuck, all of Preston. The funeral, which took place on Monday afternoon from his late residence, lot 35, concession 5, South Dumfries, to the Ayr Cemetery, was largely attended by friends and relatives, including a number from Paris, Preston and other out-of-town points. During the service at the residence Alex Plumstead sang, "No Night There." Rev. J. W. Currie conducted the services, and the pallbearers were: G. H. Lawrence, Ayr; John Bell, Galt; James Bell, Toronto; clayton Cross and Norman Crandall, Preston; and William Hall, Brantford.
