Flesherton Advance, 8 Oct 1885, p. 1

Full Text

On Sunday evening last, Oct. 4th, at his residence, Flesherton, at the grand old age of eighty-five years, died. Mr. Joseph Hinds, sr. Although not enjoying his customary good health for some time past, his demise was very sudden if not altogether unexpected. He died as he lived – a true follower of Him who “went about doing good” when on this earth.

Deceased was one of the oldest settlers of Artemesia. He was universally esteemed and respected for his many amiable qualities. He was generous and sympathetic toa fault. His pleasant smile and cherry greeting will be sadly missed by old and young. In bearing he was every inch a gentleman; his courteous and dignified manner towards all never varied - even under the most adverse circumstances.

The funeral took place on Tuesday and was largely attended. The remains were interred in the Flesherton cemetery. The funeral sermon will be preached in the Methodist Church here next Sunday.
