      Another Pioneer Gone

      In the passing of Mr. John Guthrie, who died at his late residence on Saturday, August 23, from the effects of a fall from a load of grain a week prior to his decease, the home loses a good, kind loving husband and father, and the church and community one of the best of men, and one of the most familiar and friendly personalities. Well and widely known, and highly esteemed for his sterling qualities of character, he held an honored place among his fellowmen, and belonged to that class of people that exalteth a nation and who have helped very largely to give Canada its prestige among the leading nations of the world. He was one of the most prosperous farmers in the district. Always busy, work became the habit of his life, and the summons to rest found him on duty. Mr. Guthrie will be very much missed in the community and in Stanley Street church, Ayr, where he was want to worship so faithfully, as a member, for nearly seventy years. Mr. Guthrie was a native of Ayrshire, Scotland, and when yet a lad of two years came with his parents and other members of their family to this country in the year 1834, taking up residence n the old homestead farm, now occupied by Mr. Thos. Guthrie. A few years later Mr. John Guthrie removed to the township of Blenheim, where he and his brother Robert jointly owned and farmed lot No. 2, in the 8th con. In 1864 Mr. Guthrie married Miss Elizabeth Morton and established their first home on the farm, holding sacred its early baptismal scriptural name "Goshen," now occupied by Mr. James E. Black. In 1870 Mr. Guthrie purchased what is known as the "Rosedale Farm," where he resided until his decease. Mr. and Mrs. Guthrie were given four children three daughters and one son, viz.: Mrs. James A. Edgar, (deceased); Mrs. G. D. Black, "Wilton Farm," Ayr; Mrs. D. Scott, Galt, and Morton at home. The sympathy of the entire community goes out to Mrs. Guthrie and family in this their time of sad bereavement and sorrow. The funeral, which was very largely attended, took place on Tuesday afternoon, at 2:30 p.m., the services at the house and grave being conducted by deceased's pastor, the Rev. D. I. Ellison, assisted by Rev. W. M. Grant. The pallbearers were all nephews of deceased, viz.: William Guthrie, Henry Guthrie, John D. Guthrie, George Guthrie, Thos. Guthrie and William Manson.
