  • Notes 
    • In the death of Mrs. Andrew Moscrip at an early hour this morning, Galt loses one of its oldest and most highly respected residents. For 62 years was the deceased a resident of Galt. living all that time on the farm at the end of Samuelson street. She was widely known both in Galt and throughout the county, and hundreds of friends will regret to learn of her death. She was 89 years of age. The deceased's maiden name was Joanna Oliver, and she was born in Sutherlandshire, Scotland, in 1821, coming to Canada in 1840. For some years she lived in the Province of Quebec, coming to Galt in 1848. In 1850 she was married to the late Andrew Moscrip, taking up her residence on the farm where she lived continuously until her death. Mrs. Moscrip was a member of the First Presbyterian church, in the welfare of which denomination she took a deep interest. Coming to Galt at a time when the population was only about 1,000, the deceased watched the then small village grow to its present large proportions and took much pleasure in telling her friends of the early days in Galt. Possessed of a Christian spirit and a kindly manner, the deceased made for herself hundreds of warm friends and the news of her death will cause heartfelt regret in many homes. Surviving are three daughters, Mrs. J. S. Johnson, South Water street; Miss Moscrip and Mrs. Rothwell, at home. The eldest daughter died in 1902. The deceased was the last sister of a large family. Two brothers, Adam Oliver of Branchton, and Andrew Oliver of Missouri, survive, and also four grandchildren. The funeral will take place from the deceased's large residence, Samuelson street, on Wednesday afternoon at 2.30 o'clock, to Mount View cemetery.
