      The death occurred very unexpectedly on Tuesday, March 16th of one of our oldest and highly respected residents in the person of Mr. Henry Frickey, aged 72 years, 3 months and 10 days. Deceased was around, about the usual time on Tuesday morning and seeded in good health. After preparing his own breakfast, owing to his wife's illness he went back to bed and when his wife returned to his room after preparing dinner shortly after eleven o'clock she found that her husband had passed away suddenly.

      The funeral was held on Friday morning and a very large number of friends gathered to show their last tribute of respect to the memory of the deceased. The pall-bearers were his sons: - Herman, Alvin of Rochester, N.Y., Charles of Buffalo, N.Y., Richard of Berlin, Gordon and Walter at home.

      The late Mr. Frickey was born in Braumschyeig, Germany in 1836 and when ten years of age accompanied his parents to Canada and settled in Erbsville. He had the distinction of cutting down the first tree where his home stands. In 1860 he married Miss Margaret Schnarr, daughter of the late Balzer Schnarr of Erbsville who predeceased him in 1883. He married again in 1885 to Wilhelmina Gorselity, daughter of the late John Gorselity of Cranbrook, Ont. a wife, five sons and one step-son and two sons and one daughter from the first marriage are left to mourn, their loss. One brother, two sisters, and ten grand children also survive.
