  • Notes 
    • In the death of Mr. Wesley Eaton the community of Hespeler loses a valued and highly esteemed citizen.

      He was born in Flamboro township, where Carlisle stands, on May 1st, 1838. Fifteen years later with his parents, brothers and sisters, moved into the farm adjoining the corporation. In 1871 he married Mary Ann Master and took up residence on part of the homestead. She died in 1890, leaving a sorrowing husband and eight children. Twelve years before his death he married Mrs. McCready of Hespeler, who was spared to be a helpmate in time of health and watched over him with tender care in his last days.

      Mr. Eaton took no part in public affairs, was looked upon as an excellent farmer, and as a neighbor he was as such in its fullest term, and will be missed by the community. He leaves two brothers, Nelson and Enoch of Hespeler, and four sisters, Mrs. John Washborn, Hespler; Mrs. John Cober, Brussels; Mrs. Joseph Gingrich, of Caledonia; and Mrs. Amos Souder, Waterloo Township. Children survive from first marriage, Herbert, Morris and Stanley, at home: Mrs. John Brickel (Violet), Mrs. Henry Freybourne (Ella), Mrs. John Harris (Alice), of Hespeler.

      Funeral will take place at his late residence, Hespeler cemetery, conducted by the A.O.F.W. of which order he was a member.
