      Moses Abra - (By Chronicle Correspondent) - New Dundee - Moses Abra, a highly respected resident of this community passed away at his home, R.R. 1, Blair on Saturday evening, May 6th, in his 89th year. Although the late Mr. Abra had been in failing health for some time, he suffered a stroke recently which hastened his death. He was born on the homestead, Blair Road, Sept 6, 1850 a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Abra. After his marriage in 1882 to Margaret Little, who predeceased him last August, he took up residence at Williamsburg and later moved to the farm on which he died. Mr. Abra was a member of the Preston Baptist Church and took a very active interest in this work. He is survived by: two daughters, Mrs. Norman Kaiser on the homestead and Mrs. Benjamin Groff, Blair Road; also five grandchildren; three sisters, Elizabeth of Galt, Mrs. Andrew Murray of Ivermay, Sask., and Mrs. David Ray of Galt; and four brothers, William of Toronto, Harry of Usherville, Sask., Jacob of Winnipeg, Man. and Noah of Galt. The funeral was held on Tuesday afternoon, May 9th at two o'clock at the family residence with J. C. Williamson of Preston officiating. Interment was made in the Blair Cemetery.
