      Eby, Ezra E. (1895).

      _______________________

      Lydia Schwartz, relict of the late Henry Clemens, died at Elmwood, Bruce Co. on Friday, May 18th aged 73 years and 11 months. The remains were brought to Thedford by G.T.R. on Monday afternoon and there to Ravenswood Methodist church where the service was conducted by Rev. R.S. Lachland, interment in Ravenswood Cemetery. Deceased with her late husband moved from Waterloo Township in Waterloo County to Lambton shortly after their marriage and about 40 years ago came to Bosanquet where they resided until the death of Mr. Clemens in November, 1898, his death occurring with startling suddenness, when he was feeling unusually well. Without a moment of warning as he was going about, he suddenly fell and expired at once. Two sons are dead and she is survived by four sons and two daughters, Isaac of Marlette, Michigan; Simon of Victoria B.C.; Jesse of Ravenswood; John E. of Moosejaw, Mrs. W.D. Cassells of Pennsylvania; Mrs. Allan Hallman of Waterloo: and Sarah, unmarried who always lived with her mother.
