    • Passing of Aged Mother

      In Ayr, on Sunday, Aug. 24th, 1919, at 10: 45 p.m., Sarah Goddard, relict of the late William Holdaway, in her 83rd year. The deceased had been in declining health since fracturing a hip bone about six months ago. She was born and married in England, coming to Ayr about 10 years ago, and had lived here ever since, being a witness of the many changes incident to that long period. She was of a retiring disposition and above all a motherly woman. In religion she was a Methodist. Her husband predeceased her 23 years. The family comprised seven children (two sons an five daughters). They are: Mrs. Harry Whitehorn and George in Hamilton; Edward, Mrs. Robert Elliott, Mrs. N. Walton, and Mrs. Jas. Chesney, Ayr, and Mrs. James Collins, Paris. The funeral took place on Tuesday from the residence of Mr. Walton, Swan-st., to the Ayr cemetery, rev. Mr. Todd conducting the service. The pallbearers were six grand sons, viz.: Henry Elliott, Harold Chesney, William Walton, Charles Holdaway, William Holdaway and Harry Whitehorn.
