  • Notes 
    • Passing of a Blenheim Pioneer - In the death of James Hall, which event took place at his resident, Blenheim, on April 12, that township loses another of its pioneers and the last in that section. The deceased, who was in his 77th year, spent about 50 years on the farm on which he died and made of it an ideal home. He was widely known and highly respected, being a prominent member of the Presbyterian Church at Drumbo. His wife predeceased him some years. The member of the family surviving are McKenzie, Robert, Elizabeth and Agnes on the homestead, John at Plattsville and Mrs. John Brown of Ayr. Interment was made in the Ayr cemetery on Good Friday, the remains being followed to their last resting place by a large circle of friends. The services at the grave were conducted by Rev. Dr. Thomson.
