    • Born in Acton 84 Years Ago - In the passing away of John Boomer, at his home in London on Tuesday, the last member of a large family, whose birthplace was in the county of Halton, has died. Mr. Boomer was the youngest son of the late John Boomer, Esquesing. The Boomer homestead was on the seventh line, Esquesing, the second lot from Hornby. For many years past it has been known as the "Coulson Farm." The deceased spent some time in his boyhood days in Acton, and attended Rockwood Academy. He went with his parents to Linwood, and after his marriage lived in Clifford for a number of years. Thirty years ago he removed to London, where he built up a very successful business in high-class confectionery, which has won favor throughout the Dominion. This business was taken over several years ago by Herbert E. Boomer, his only son. Mr. Boomer was eighty-four years of age. Mrs. Boomer survives him. The son is the only living member of his family. He was a man of fine Christian character, of splendid business ability, and a leading citizen. He lived in the ? of his fellowman. The Boomer family comprised of William, Alfred, George and John, Mrs. John Speight, Mrs. Frank Wright, Mrs. Robert S. Hall.
