      _____________________

      Demise of Oldest Resident - To have lived to the age of nearly 94 years, about 80 of which were spent in Dumfries, is a record that falls to a lot of very few, Mr. Richard Deans of North Dumfries, who passed away on Friday, attained that distinction. He was born in Scotland and came to Canada when in his boyhood, settling with his parents in the section now known as Keg Lane, near Paris. He had, however, resided on the farm on which he died, lot 28, concession 10, North Dumfries, for a period of about 65 years. In 1862 he married, his bride being Miss Euphemia tenant, who predeceased him some years. The family surviving comprises Mrs. Andrew Hall, Blenheim; Matthew K., Waterloo tp.; Mrs. Cameron Marshall, N. D.; Mrs. Thos. Hall, N. D.; Mrs. Jas. Henderson, Waterloo Tp., and James and Edith at home. In religion the deceased was a Presbyterian and attended Stanley street Church, Ayr, before the union. Politically he was a staunch Liberal, and also took a deep interest in municipal affairs, being a member of the township council for a number of years. He was highly respected in the community and a good neighbor. The funeral took place on Monday, when interment was made in the Ayr cemetery, Rev. J. J. Brown conducting the service. The pallbearers were Messrs. Thos. and And. Hall, Jas. Henderson, Stephen Marshall, and Matthew K. and James Deans.
