  • Notes 
    • Mrs. Andrew Hall

      The death occurred suddenly in Ayr on Monday of Jane Gemmell, widow of the late Andrew Hall, in her 74th year. Mrs. Hall was born in North Dumfries Township, on the farm now occupied by Dave Gemmell, and her parents were among the early pioneers of this section. After her marriage she removed to her husband's farm, on the 13th Concession of Blenheim, where they resided for many years, removing to Ayr about eleven years ago. She was a life-long, faithful member of Knox United Church, and was much interested in the work of the various women's organizations of the congregation. Deceased was a lady of many fine qualities and will be greatly missed by numerous friends and relatives in the community. Her husband predeceased her 1-1/2 years ago. She is survived by one sister, Mrs. J. L. Robson, Ayr, and the following six children: Miss Jessie R. Hall, at home; Mrs. A. J. Wright, Montreal; Mrs. David McDonald, New Dundee; Morton and Dave Hall, Blenheim, and Ray Hall, Galt. The funeral took place to the Ayr Cemetery Wednesday afternoon.
