  • Notes 
    • JOHN HERON

      One of Wellesley's pioneers passed away a week ago Thursday in the person of John Heron. Esq., of lot 2. con.[?] west section, after a short illness. He was born in Ireland in 1835 [?], and came to Canada in '43, settling at once upon the farm upon which he died. Notwithstanding the hard, rugged work he endured as a pioneer he enjoyed good health almost until the end. In 1853 [?] he was married, and his wife and three sons survive him. His remains were interred in the cemetery of the English church at Millbank, with the honor of the L. O. L. society, of which he has for many years been an honored member.
