    • Death of John Murray

      The death occurred at his home near Glenmorris on Friday morning of John Murray, after a lengthy illness, which assumed serious proportions about two weeks prior to his demise. Deceased, who was in his 46th year, was born on the farm on which he died, and was highly thought of by a host of friends for his many fine qualities. He was a member of Glenmorris United Church and always took a deep interest in church work. Deceased was married fifteen years ago to Annie Carswell, who, along with the following 2 children survive to mourn their losses: James, Isabelle and Catherine. He is also survived by his aged parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Murray, and a sister, Mrs. Erle Sharp. The funeral, which took place to the Ayr Cemetery on Sunday afternoon, was very largely attended. The services were conducted by Rev. Mr. Davies of Glenmorris, assisted by Rev. Mr. Carswell of Toronto and Rev. A. McRae of Brantford. The pallbearers were: Messrs. Robert Murray, Hugh McCartney, Allen Pringle, E. C. Smith, Marshall Gillies and Ernest Cochrane.
