  • Notes 
    • Another of Elmira's respected citizens has passed away in the person of Mr. Hugh Campbell, William Street. His death took place on Tuesday evening about eight o'clock after a lengthy illness which only became serious a day or two previous to his demise.

      The late Mr. Campbell, who was of a quiet disposition, was in his 72nd year, having been born in the Township of Peel, near Floradale, on February 20, 1861. When a young man he took up carpentry work and after following this and other pursuits for a few years at different points he returned to the homestead in Peel, where he soon became a successful farmer. In May, 1895, he was united in marriage to Caroline Lasch of the same neighbourhood. About thirteen and a -half years ago Mr. and Mrs. Campbell moved to Elmira and on March 27, 1925, the latter passed away. Since then Mr. Campbell has lived a retired life. He was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, first at Floradale and when he moved to Elmira and become connected with the church here. A family of one son and one daughter survive, Mr. Ed. Campbell of Elmira and Mrs. Arthur Schleuter of the Linwood neighborhood. There is also one brother, Mr. George Campbell, who resides near Glenallan.

      The funeral will take place tomorrow (Friday) from his late home at two o'clock to St. Paul's Lutheran Church for service and thence to the Elmira Cemetery for interment. Rev. F. Malinsky will have charge of the services.
