    • Miss Jean Neilson, Former Ayr Resident

      Older residents of the community will learn with regret of the death in New Haven, Conn., on Friday, May 13th, of Miss Jean Neilson, following a lengthy illness. The late Miss Neilson came here from Scotland in the late '80's with her mother, sister and brother to join another brother, Robert Neilson, who occupied an important position with the Goldie Milling Company. They resided in the house now occupied by Dr. and Mrs. J. H. Caulfield. She trained as a nurse in the old Toronto General Hospital and practised her profession in Toronto, Montreal and Boston. Years later, when her brother Robert retired from the Lake of the Woods Milling Company in Montreal, where he had taken a position following the sale of the Goldie mill, she moved with him and her sister to Orange, Conn. A brother, William Allan Neilson, was in that community as president of Smith College. Since the death of their brothers, the Misses Neilson have lived in New Haven. Her sister, Miss Elizabeth V., is the last surviving member of this distinguished family, and celebrated her 96th birthday on May 2. Some senior citizens may recall when she taught music in this village years ago.
