  • Notes 
    • CROSSHILL.
      Once more the angel of death has visited our neighborhood and culled to his last resting place, Mr. John Hastings. He passed peacefully away on Thursday morning after a long and severe illness. It is hard to part with those we love, but it is a comfort to know he is at rest from all suffering and pain. Johnnie will be much missed throughout the community and especially in the Presbyterian church and Sunday school, where he has been an active worker for many years. He leaves to mourn his loss, one sister and five brothers: Miss Bella, Joseph, and Alexander, at home; William in the village; Allen, of Exeter, and James, of Port Huron. The sympathy of the community is extended to the family in their sad bereavement.
