  • Notes 
    • Death of Mrs. Thos. Easton
      Resided in Ayr and Vicinity for Upwards of Four Score Years


      In the death of Mrs. Thomas Easton, which event occurred at her residence, Manley Street, Ayr, on Thursday, March 18th, 1920, at 5 p.m., this community loses one of its most highly esteemed pioneers, in her 82nd year. Mary Richmond (her maiden name) was born in Ayrshire, Scotland, and came to Canada with her parents at the age of one month, settling on the farm now occupied by Mr. Albert Gillespie. In 1863, she was married to Thomas Easton and took up residence on the Easton homestead, a short distance from her old home. Here she resided continuously until 12 years ago, when she and her husband retired from the more strenuous activities of life and moved to Ayr, Mr. Easton surviving his retirement only about two years. Mrs. Easton was a life-long member of the Presbyterian Church and a regular attendant at the services, taking a deep and intelligent interest in everything relating to the interests of the congregation and the community at large. A devoted wife and mother, her memory will ever be a green spot in the recollection of her family, and a wide circle of friends will join with them in mourning the departure of one who was sincerely loved and esteemed for her many excellent qualities of head and heart. All the members of the family, one daughter and six sons survive. They are: Alexander, New Durham; William, Bright; George, Washington; Thomas, Ayr; John and Arthur on old homestead, and Mrs. John Clark at home. Several brothers also survive. They are: James, Richmond, Galt; Rev. John M. Richmond, Ormand, Florida and Mr. Matthew Richmond, Iowa. The funeral on Saturday to Ayr cemetery was largely attended, the pallbearers being deceased's six sons. Rev. J. J. Brown conducted the services which was assisted by Rev. Dr. John Thomson, who was Mrs. Easton's pastor for a period of nearly 40 years.
