  • Notes 
    • Mrs. Jane Swan

      The death occurred at the home of her son-in-law, Thomas Marshall, Roseville, on Saturday of Mrs. Jane Swan of Ayr in her 81st year. She was born in Scotland and came to Canada with her family when about two years old. The family first settled in a log cabin which stood at the end of Wm. G. Hall's lane, and later removed to a farm north of the village. Mrs. Swan attended the Reidsville school which was at that time situated on the farm now occupied by Menno Shantz. She was married 60 years ago and with her husband resided on the 10th and 5th concessions of Blenheim for many years. They removed to Ayr 45 years ago, where her husband predeceased her in 1908. She was a member of Knox United Church. Mrs. Swan is survived by the following family: Mrs. John Falland, Clinton; Mrs. Thomas Marshall, Roseville; Mrs. Isabella Veitch, Galt; George and James Swan, Ayr. The funeral took place to Ayr Cemetery on Tuesday.
