  • Notes 
    • At his home on Cooper St. in Hespeler, early Tuesday morning, 6th April 1915, a most estimable and highly honoured citizen, leaving still another gap in the ranks of Hespeler's grand old men. He was in his 88th year. He was born in Easen Mandit, Northamptonshire, England and came to Canada shortly after his marriage to Zylpha Johnson, some sixty-five years ago. He settled in Wellesley Township and in 1869 came to this district, living on the Jamieson farm for six years, before removing to Puslinch Township, where he resided until he retired from active life and took up his residence in Hespeler about thirteen years ago. He was a sturdy Englishman of the old school and enjoyed splendid health until a few months before his death, when he contracted pneumonia. This was his first illness and the first time he had ever taken medicine. He was a kindly, courtly gentleman and was admired and respected wherever known. He was a life-long Conservative and fought the battles of the party for many years in Puslinch, when Conservatives were woefully in the minority. His wife predeceased him five years ago. He leaves four sons and two daughters, Joseph of Saskatoon; Jacob of Puslinch; John of Fisher's Mills; William of Hespeler; Mrs. Hugh Dunbar of Galt; and Mrs. W. P. Burtch of Palermo. The funeral was held from his residence on Thursday at 2: 30 and was very largely attended, many friends gathering to pay their last tribute to the memory of this grand old man. The cortege to Hespeler Cemetery for interment was one of the largest seen here in recent years. Services were conducted by Rev. J. J. Liddy. Pallbearers: John, Jacob and William Cooper; Hugh Dunbar, William Burtch and Roy Cooper.
