  • Notes 
    • James H. Kyle Passes

      One of the district's best-known farmers and a pioneer dairyman, James Kingsburgh Kyle died at his home on the 7th Concession on Friday. He was in his 86th year. A son of the late George Kyle and Margaret Kingsburgh Kyle, he was born in the district where he spent his entire life-time. Spring Valley Farm, with its broad expanse of rolling acres, was a familiar name in the district, and the fine Jersey herd owned by Mr. Kyle made an excellent record in the dairy field. Years ago he took over the Spring Valley Dairy in Paris as a family enterprise and it was operated by his son Hector up until a few years ago. The dairy supplied milk to Ayr, Paris and much of the outlying district, and gained an excellent reputation for its product - particularly the Jersey milk. The herd at Spring Valley Farm supplied a major part of the milk. The late Mr. Kyle took a deep interest in agricultural affairs in his younger years, and was associated with various organizations working toward the improvement of the farmers' lot. He was a popular figure in social circles and an outstanding hunter and angler. Mr. Kyle was one of the founders of the Hardy Bay Hunt Club which has been hunting deer annually on the French River for many years. His skill and knowledge in this sport were recognized by his companions who enjoyed his company on these trips up until only a few years ago. The late Mr. Kyle was a most interesting conversationalist in his quiet-spoken way. His topics were always well spiced with a native dry wit which was signaled by the approaching jolly smile. He was a valued member of Knox United Church. Surviving are three daughters, Mrs. David Brown (Esther), RR 3, Bright; Mrs. Richard Baxter (Helen), RR 3, Bright, and Miss Jean, at home; also a son, Hector of Ayr. Several grandchildren survive as well. He was predeceased by his wife, the former Jean Black, in 1953; by a son, Harold in 1952, and by a daughter Edith, many years ago.

      The Funeral

      Funeral service was held from the William Kipp Funeral Home, Paris, on Monday with entombment in Ayr Cemetery Chapel. Rev. W. V. Buchanan officiated. The pallbearers were Spencer Elmes, Cameron Edgar, John Nunan and Kingsburgh Kyle, all of the district; Douglas Black of Paris and Ted Muma of Ancaster.
