  • Notes 
    • The deceased lady had been a resident of Galt for over sixty years and had watched the town grow from a small village to a thriving and prosperous town. She was born in St. Austell, Cornwall, England in 1816, and thus at the time of her death had reached the ripe old age of 92 years. She was married in England in 1837, and came to Canada in 1847. After living for short periods in Toronto, Kingston, and Preston, Mr. and Mrs. Wilkins moved to Galt in 1848 where Mrs. Wilkins has resided continuously. Her husband predeceased her twenty years ago...............

      Her husband was a jeweller and on the occasion of the death of Mary Coombe, presented Richard Kinsman's wife Isabella McCullough Grant with a gold pocket watch to thank her for the years of caring for her.
