      Demise of Mr. & Mrs. Walter Rutherford - Married About 50 Years, and In Death They Were Not Long Divided

      There passed away within a week of each other an aged couple in the persons of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Rutherford, lot 36 con. 10, North Dumfries, who had lived together for half a century and in death were not long divided. Mrs. Rutherford was the first to cross into the great unknown, her death occurring on Tuesday Jan. 4th, the husband, following on Monday, Jan. 10th. Both had attained a good age, the wife being in her 76th year and Mr. Rutherford in his 84th. Theirs had been the simple, unostentatious life, and the attachment which existed between them was evidence of years of tender companionship. Mrs. Rutherford was Williamson, her birth place being Oneida Township. The husband was born at Cheviot Hills, Scotland, and came to Canada at the age of 8. He had been about 30 years on the farm on which he died. He was the last close of kin on his side of the house. Both were members of Knox United Church, Ayr, and in politics were Conservative. The family comprises four daughters and two sons, viz.: Mrs. A. Dryden, Galt; Mrs. G. Wallace, and Mrs. W. Little, North Dumfries; Elizabeth at home; Robert and James at home. Mrs. Rutherford leaves three brothers and three sisters. They are: James Williamson, Wayside, Georgia; David Williamson, Manitoulin Island; Andrew Williamson, North Dumfries; Mrs. And. Nichol, North Dumfries; Mrs. G. Hodgson, and Mrs. G. McDonald, Manitoulin Island. Interment was made in the Ayr cemetery on Jan 6 and Jan. 12 respectively. The pallbearers were: Messrs. Wesley Snyder, Thos. Sheard, John Hodgson, And. Nichol, Jas. King and W. Gemmell. The same gentlemen acted in both cases, with the exception that yesterday M. And. Williamson was substituted for Mr. Hodgson, and Mr. Alex. Edgar for Mr. Sheard. Rev. Mr. Brown conducted both services.
