      Lifelong Resident of Blenheim Township Had Suffered Prolonged Illness - Funeral on Monday

      Following a prolonged illness, the death occurred at his residence, 9th concession of Blenheim township, on Saturday evening at six o'clock of George Inglis Black, in his 54th year.

      Mr. Black was born on the home farm about one mile from where he resided and was well and favourably known in the community as a successful farmer and a good friend and neighbour. He was a member of Knox United Church, Ayr, and took a great interest in the affairs of the congregation.

      He was married 21 years ago in June to Margaret Elizabeth Morton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Morton, Glen Morris, who survives, along with his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. George D. Black, and three sisters, Misses Elizabeth and Mary, and Mrs. Ernest Cochrane (Margaret), all of Blenheim township.

      The Funeral
      There was a large attendance at the funeral, which was held from his late residence on Monday afternoon to the Ayr Cemetery. The services were conducted by Rev. R. A. Steed, pastor of Knox United Church, assisted by Rev. J. W. Currie. The many beautiful floral tributes bore mute testimony to the esteem in which the late Mr. Black was held.

      The flower-bearers were: John Edgar, Paris; Lloyd Black, Kincardine; Norman Wallace, Glen Morris; Charles Robson and John Welsh. Those who acted as pallbearers were: George W. Black, Paris; T. Glen Black, Hamilton; Wm. G. Edgar, Reidsville; John W. Currie, Cameron Edgar and Peter L. Gourlay.
