  • Notes 
    • Mrs. John Berscht was born in Wellesley in 1852, and has resided here continuously ever since. In early life she was united in marriage to Mr. Berscht who with a family of Carrie, Lizzie, John, William, Albert, Edna, Herbert and Wilfrid, are surviving and all were present at the large funeral on Sunday except John, who resides at Didsbury, Alta. For over a year past she has been confined to her room, latterly growing worse until eleven o'clock on Thursday night when she quietly passed away. Wellesley Maple Leaf, October 12, 1905.
