    • George Elvin, Greenfield Road, Dies Following Accident

      The death occurred at his home on the Greenfield road, three miles northeast of Ayr, late Thursday afternoon, following an accident, of Frederick George Elvin, aged 74 years. Mr. Elvin was backing his team to hitch them to the binder when one of the horses caught its foot in a groundhog hole and fell, giving him a severe jolt and knocking him to the ground. The shock, along with a heart condition from which, he had been suffering, proved too much for Mr. Elvin and his death resulted in the course of some 30 minutes. Born in England, Mr. Elvin came to Canada, alone, at the age of 11. Upon reaching this country, he was employed as a farm hand north of Kingston. He later moved to Hamilton, where he was married in 1887. Shortly after his marriage, he moved to a farm in Puslinch Township. While living there, Mr. Elvin occupied the position of town foreman at Galt for 18 years. Surviving him are four sons and four daughters: William J., who resides on a neighboring farm; Robert, Reidsville; Morley G., Galt; Frederick G., Guelph; Mrs. Wm. McConnell, Galt; Mrs. George Ashton, Galt; Mrs. Stewart McConnell, Galt, and Miss Annadale at home. One brother in the United States and 12 grandchildren also survive. The funeral took place Saturday to Mount View Cemetery, Galt, with Rev. J. J. Lowe of Central Presbyterian Church conducting the services. The pallbearers were: James R. Henderson James M. Scott, David Gemmell, Norman G. McLeod, Thomas Currie and Robert Barrie.
