    • Robert Cathcart

      LINWOOD\\ The death occurred here on Friday of Mr. Robert Cathcart at the age 87. Mr. Cathcart for nearly a quarter of a century was a rural mail driver, covering more than 100,000 miles with his buggy and horse. Until last year he had continued as rural carrier and then relinquished this post and proceeded to meet the local trains and cart the mail to the office. A series of strokes, the last one recently, resulted in his death. Born on the old homestead, Mr. Cathcart qualified as a school teacher. After teaching at Bridgeport and Mannheim he again returned to the farm for 45 years. Twenty-two years ago Mr. Cathcart came to this village two years before leaving the farm, he was awarded the rural mail contract which he continued after coming to the village. Mr. Cathcart was a member of the Linwood United Church. His wife, one son and one daughter predeceased him leaving one son Wesley of Fergus and two daughters, Mrs. E. C. Boyd of Linwood and Mrs. Charles Corrigon of Vernon, B.C., to survive with one brother, two sisters, ten grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. The funeral was held on Sunday at one o'clock, from his late residence to the Union Cemetery. Rev. W. 0. Mather officiated.
