  • Notes 
    • CONIAM - At his late residence, 17 Robert street, on Monday, May 12, 1902, Joseph Coniam, in his 80th year. Funeral from above address on Thursday at 3: 30 p.m. Friends will please accept this intimation. Toronto papers please copy.

      Another of Hamilton's old and respected citizens, Joseph Coniam, 17 Robert Street, passed tp his reward this morning. The deceased was in his eightieth year of his age and came to Hamilton from Bovey-Tracey, Devonshire, England, on June 1, 1854. At that time, the Great Western Railway was just opening up and Mr. Coniam went to Galt and secured a position. He remained in the employ of the railway until it was absorbed by the Grand Trunk Railway, and from that time until his death, was in the employ of the G.T.R. He was at different times, located in Galt, Guelph and Toronto, but always looked upon Hamilton as his home. For many years he was a conductor, but of late years had been stationmaster at the King Street station. He was one of the first members of Wesley church, he and his wife having united with the congregation on their arrival in Hamilton nearly half a century ago. He had been, since 1873, a member of St. John's Masonic lodge, and the funeral, which will take place Thursday afternoon, will be in charge of members of the lodge. The deceased is survived by a widow and two daughters, Misses Gertrude and Frances.
