  • Notes 
    • Passing of Mrs. Janet Thomson - Galt's oldest citizen, in the person of Mrs. Janet Thomson, mother of Mr. Alexander Thomson of this village, passed away at her home in Galt on Monday, in her 99th year, following the dislocation of her hip a week previously.

      The deceased was born near Hawick, Roxboroughshire, Scotland, on Feb. 19, 1824, and came to Canada in '41, settling in Galt. Later they took up land north-east of Roseville, and while there attended Stanley Street Church, Ayr. On leaving the farm about 30 years ago, they again settled in Galt, where Mr. Thomson died some three years later.

      Mrs. Thomson, despite her great age, retained all her faculties to the last and would doubtless have lived many years longer but for the accident which befell her. Hers was a genial, kindly disposed nature, and a sunny disposition. She loved the society of young people, and was very fond of animals and flowers. Everywhere she made staunch friends and very many will deeply regret her demise.

      She leaves eight sons and daughters, 14 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Interment took place at Mount view Cemetery, Galt, on Tuesday afternoon.
