    • Death of Mr. Henry McCrum

      It is the deepest regret that we this week announce the death of the above named gentleman, which took place at his residence on Monday morning last, of congestion of the lungs. Mr. McCrum had been a resident of Galt for the past forty five years, having come to the then scattered hamlet on the solicitations of the late Mr. Shade. For several years he was engaged in mercantile pursuits, having been a member of the firm of Russel & McCrum, who carried on business in the old "Red Store", where the Commercial Buildings now stand. He afterwards succeeded the late Mr. John Hearle as clerk of the Division Court, a position which he held for many years. Of late, McCrum had not been engaged in any regular business on his own account, but for a year or so preceding his death he had been book-keeper in Mr. Spiers' office at the oatmeal mill. A man of genial, kindly feeling, he was endeared to a large circle of friends, who deeply regret his death. Mr. McCrum leaves a wife and grown up family, several members of which reside in the United States. He was aged 69 years at the time of his death.
