  • Notes 
    • DANSE - Died at Galt, on the 9th instant, Pierre Frederic Danse, aged 86 years. Pierre had been a soldier for many years under Napoleon and crossed the Alps under command of that world renowned general. With honourable scars received on many a bloody field, and full of years, he came to the Canadian Provinces a quarter of a century ago, and lived for a great part of that time in this village, working with a tenacity and industry truly surprising for a man of his age and service. Possessed of a very hardy constitution, he reached more that the allotted span of human life with little or no sickness, and at last sank down into eternity without a murmur. Pierre was well respected here, and was the last survivor of three or four persons latterly located in the neighbourhood who had served in the Continental Wars under Napoleon.
