      Death of David R. Strome

      We regret to have to chronicle the death of David R. Strome, which sad event occurred on Thursday afternoon of last week. Deceased was born in Blenheim township in 1834, and was married in 1856 to Martha Sophia Schader, who died on the 4th of February last year. To Mr. and Mrs. Strome were born nine children, seven of whom survive, namely: Mrs. J. C. Amy, Elmira; Norman, Hamilton; Mrs. E. Stickney, Peel Township; Noah on the old homestead in Pilkington Township; Urias, Winnipeg, Man.; Simon, Cayuga, Ont. Besides these, eleven grandchildren and one great grandchild survive, together with six brothers, three in the Northwest, two in Berlin and one near Floradale, and one sister in Waterloo. The family lived in Woolwich and Elmira for a few years, then for about 26 years they lived in Pilkington, where their son Noah, now resides. Twelve years ago Mr. and Mrs. Strome retired from the farm and became residents of Elmira. Mr. Strome who was of a quiet retiring disposition was highly respected and was a consistent member of the Evangelical Association about 40 years.
