  • Notes 
    • BLACK, ROBERT

      Suddenly, a very highly esteemed and well known citizen, the night of October 10, 1910, at 8, aged 68. He was working in the garden at 4 o'clock and shortly afterwards, went into the house and complained that he was not feeling well. Dr. Campbell was hastily summoned and worked with the patient from then until 8 but despite all that medical science could do, he died of apoplexy. He was a well known farmer, having lived in the town limits for the past fifteen years. He is survived by a wife, three sons and a daughter: Wesley of Berlin; David of Toronto; William of Hespeler; and Mrs. James Curry of Hespeler. The funeral took place on Friday.
