A little over half a century ago he married Elizabeth Thomson, who survives. In religion he was a Presbyterian and an elder in the Church here for many years. He was also a staunch Liberal and a good type of Canadian citizen. The family comprised eight, seven of whom survive. They are: Miss Annie at home; Elizabeth at Pasadena, Calif.; Mrs. Marshall, William and John at Silver, Stream, Sask.; Bella at Galt, and James with the army at the front.
