      The Death of James Black - There died on Monday, Sept 25,1922, at his late residence, lot No. 2, in the 8th concession of the township of Blenheim, after a severe, lingering illness of nearly two years, James Black, son of the late George Black, Sr., in his 68th year. The deceased was of a quiet, unassuming, kind and friendly nature, and in return was beloved by a host of friends, as was attested by the many who visited him in sympathy during his long and unrelenting, fatal illness. Mr. Black lived all his life in the vicinity of Ayr, on the farm on which he died and on the adjoining farm, except for a few years on the Paris Plains. In the early eighties Mr. Black was united in marriage with Miss Margaret Guthrie, who predeceased him 36 years ago. By this union there were 3 sons and 1 daughter, viz.: George W. of Paris; Robert J. and Marr, of Strathclair, Man., and Mrs. James Kyle near Ayr, all of whom are left to mourn their sad loss. In later life Mr. Black remarried, being united in wedlock with Miss Janet Rodger, who, together with their 2 sons, Glendon and Lloyd, now mourn the passing of a kind and loving father. Mr. George D. Black, an only brother, is also one of the sorrowing mourners, along with a large circle of relatives and keenly the deep sense of their loss in the removal by death of a kind friend and neighbor. The funeral takes place today, (Thursday) at 2: 30 p. m., to Ayr Cemetery.
