  • Notes 
    • Demise of Mrs. Woolsey, Sr. - In her 76th Year, 42 of Which Were Spent in Ayr - In Ayr's Centennial year and on the eve as it were of the date set for public recognition of the event, there passed away in the person of Mrs. Joseph Woolsey, Sr., a resident who had spent 42 years in the community, where she reared a large family, was well known and highly esteemed. The deceased, who closed this life at 4.45 on Monday morning, had been ill for some time and had suffered two strokes, one on Nov. 8 and the other on July 4. Her maiden name was Elizabeth Clulow. She was born in Portadown, County Armagh, Ireland, and was in her 76th year. Deceased was united in marriage with Joseph Woolsey in 1867, and came to Canada six years later, settling in Mitchell, Ont. In 1882 the family came to Ayr, where Mrs. Woolsey had resided ever since, her husband predeceasing her 18 years. The family comprises six children, between whom and their mother there was a bond of affection that rendered separation most trying. The personnel of the family is as follows: Mrs. Chislolm Scott, Jas. Benj., Wm. J., Mrs. Thompson Kilgour, all of Ayr, Joseph, Jr., of Brantford, and Mrs. John Taylor of Pittsburg, Pa. Two sisters and a brother also survive. They are: Mrs. W. D. Cuthbertson and Miss Rachel Clulow of London and John Clulow of Stratford. All the children were present at the bedside when deceased calmly and peacefully passed on before. Mrs. Woolsey was a Methodist, and was of a sweet tempered, jovial disposition, a woman whose friendship was sincere and lasting. The funeral took place from her late residence, Stanley Street, to the Ayr cemetery yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon, the service being conducted by Rev. ? The pallbearers were Messrs. John Anderson, R. S. Armstrong, G. W. Dawson, H. Roy Graham, H. Harding and J. W. Hunt.
