    • Death of Mrs. J. Appleyard

      Her Passing Followed an Illness of Almost a Year
      Funeral Monday

      Jessie Mitchell Davidson, beloved wife of Joseph Appleyard, died at 9.30 Friday morning at her Jedburgh home following an illness of almost a year. She was in her 76th year. Of a kindly disposition, Mrs. Appleyard had many friends who will learn of her passing with deep regret. She was an adherent of Knox United Church and a member of the Women's Institute. A daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Davidson, she was born at Roseville, and as a girl attended the old Ayr school, located near the rink. In 1893, she married Joseph Appleyard in Toronto, and since then had lived in Galt and Ayr. She came to Ayr with her husband 14 years ago after residing on a farm east of Ayr, now occupied by Wesley Main, for eight or nine years. Besides her husband, Mrs. Appleyard is survived by one sister, Mrs. Agnes Congdon, Jacksonville, Florida. Three sons predeceased her. William was killed in the Great War, Clarence died as a result of war injuries, and George died in Texas in 1931. The funeral, which was private, took place on Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock, with service at her home and interment in Ayr Cemetery. Rev. J. W. Currie officiated. The pallbearers were: George Edgar and Lyon Findlater, Ayr; Arthur Appleyard and Walter Appleyard, Hamilton; James Appleyard, London; and Edwin S. Hood, Galt.
