- Death of Mr. Morris Shellard, Sr., of Beverly
Today it falls to our lot to record the death of this well-known gentleman. For years now he has been an invalid, and has almost dropped from his place in life, but he bore his sufferings and weakness most patiently, and scarcely a word of querulousness passed his lips.
Mr. Shellard was born 16th October, 1809, in Wiltshire, England, and was consequently in his 80th year. He came to Canada in 1832, and entered the employment of Col. Brock Hill, who then owned considerable land in the Township of Woodhouse, Norfolk County, for whom he worked six years, in that time, by dint of industry and economy, saving enough to enable him to buy the land on the 9th concession, Beverly, which he subsequently made one of the best farms in the Township. This land, native, rough, with hardly a means of reaching it except on foot, he settled on in 1838, and from that time, in fair weather or foul, the sturdy form of our old friend could be seen wielding the axe, driving the oxen, or pursuing in some painstaking, industrious way, the course of subduing the wilderness, and bringing foot by foot, the rich land under cultivation. There he spent his days as a prominent farmer, his experience and advice respected, and his efforts always directed towards the improvement of the section in which he lived. He took little part in public matters of any description. He was married in 1838, to Miss Mercer, whose death in March last, we noticed. Of their family there are living, Morris and Thomas, of Beverly, Andrew, of California, Mrs. Cole, of St. Marys, Mrs. Gosman, of Blythe, and Mrs. J. H. Rutherford, of South Dumfries. Their daughter Mrs. Joseph Clouting, died some years ago.
Mr. Shellard will be buried in Mount View Cemetery, today (Friday) the funeral leaving the residence at 2 o'clock p.m.
