    • Elmira Signet 9 Jun 1904 p. 1, col. 3

      Messrs Philip and Jacob Christman attended the funeral of their brother William, at Port Elgin last week. Deceased was a successful and prosperous farmer living several miles from Port Elgin. A few days prior to his death he met with an accident, a cow having fallen against him and fractured his leg. The wounded member was bandaged and all seemed to be well with the patient. A few days later he was seized with pain in the head and on Wednesday morning while attempting to take breakfast he expired suddenly. He was the youngest son of the late Henry Christman, spent his youth and early manhood in and near Elmira and removed to near Owen Sound and later to Port Elgin, many years ago. He had reached the age of 50 years and 5 months.
