    • CLOSE OF AN ACTIVE CAREER

      DR. H. ULLYOT, OF ELMIRA WAS ONE OF WATERLOO COUNTY'S OLDEST PRACTICIONERS - FUNERAL TOOK PLACE TO-DAY.

      The funeral of the late Dr. H. Ullyot, who died at his home in Elmira on Wednesday morning, took place this afternoon. A large number of Berlinites were among those who attended. The deceased had passed the prime of his life, but was nevertheless actively engaged in his profession, and who for aught man knew, had before him the prospect of a number of years of useful life. Deceased was born in England in the year 1845. When 5 years of age he emigrated to Canada. He commenced practice thirty years ago; when four years in practice he removed to Hawkesville where he enjoyed the confidence of many patients during the eight years of his residence. Thence he removed to Elmira, where at the time of his death on Wednesday morning, at a result of a severe attack of pleuro-pneumonia, he had just entered upon his twenty-sixth year of practice, and where he held the esteem of all who knew him. He was a man of refined manners and gentlemanly bearing throughout, was known for his straightforwardness and integrity, had the courage of his convictions and lived a life compatible with the christianity which he professed as a member of the Methodist church. Dr. Ullyot took a keen interest in public and educational affairs, was in his time a member of the Board of Trustees of the Berlin High School, chairman of the Elmira School Board, member of the Railway Committee and Board of Trade. Although repeatedly nominated for municipal honors, he declined to stand until a few years ago, when he sought admission into the County Council, but was unsuccessful. He was a ready speaker, who, when he took the platform, was intently heard, his remarks being marked by a carefulness and conservatism that indicated mature consideration. He enjoyed a remunerative medical practice and will be greatly missed by his numerous patients as well as by his fellow citizens in general. He was thrice married. His first wife, a daughter of Dr. Kay, of Farquahar, left him three sons and three daughters, viz.: George, of Yorkton, Assa; Mary (Mrs. Alba Cavanagh) and Henry, of California; Arthur of Toronto; Lily (Mrs. Cale) of Stratford, and Francis who died at Elmira in early womanhood. His second wife, a former Miss Edgar, of Stratford, departed this life several years ago, and deceased was again married to a Miss Snider of Norwich, who survives him, and who together with the other members of the family, has the sympathy of a large circle of friends in the loss of a kind and considerate husband and an affectionate father. Deceased had reached the age of 60 years, 9 months and 17 days.
