  • Notes 
    • Mrs. George Hamilton - At noon Saturday last Mrs. George Hamilton passed away at her home in Toronto after an illness of several weeks. Mrs. Hamilton was formerly Mary Etta Watson, eldest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. James G. Watson. She was born in Ayr 57 years ago, and lived here continuously until about 16 years ago when the family moved to Toronto. Mrs. Hamilton always had a very lively interest in Ayr and was instrumental in organizing the Ayr Old Girls Association of Toronto, and was President of that Association for the first two years. Besides her husband, Mrs. Hamilton is survived by three sons and one daughter, Haggart, Albert and Clarence, and Mrs. James Lynden. Mr. Archie Watson of Ayr, Mrs. E. S. Strachan of Detroit, Mrs. Robert Harmer of Princeton, and Mr. W. D. Watson of Vancouver are brothers and sisters. The funeral services were held at the home in Toronto on Monday evening and on Tuesday afternoon at the home of her brother, Mr. Archie G. Watson, here, proceeding to Ayr Cemetery for interment. The services were taken here by Rev. J. w. Currie, assisted by Rev. D. I. Ellison of Toronto, a former pastor of Mrs. Hamilton.
