Not in good health for some time, but able to be up and around until Sunday, when he became suddenly ill, William Dousett, aged and respected resident of Maxville, died at his home at 9 o'clock Thursday morning (June 1). The announcement of his death was received with deep regret, as many were unaware his illness had assumed a serious nature.

Born in Montague Ont. in 1862, he was a son of William Dousett and his wife, Margaret Lever. The family came here in 1881, from Riceville, Ont. and at different times Mr. Dousett acted as grain buyer for W.H. Dwyer & Co., and was employed in the saw mill of D.P. McDougall. For some time he resided in Montreal, but always maintained his home here. In more recent years he acted as agent for the Daly Tea company of Napanee, and had filled the position of Bailiff.

Mr. Dousett was twice married, first in 1885 to Catherine Ward, who died in 1908. His second wife, by whom he is survived, was Bella McGregor, to whom he was married on October 7, 1915. Also surviving are five sons and two daughters, by the first marriage - William Dousett, St. John's Que.;Silas Dousett, Peterborough; Geo. Dousett, Grimsby; Albert Dousett, Los Angeles, Calif.; Ward Dousett, Rochester, N.Y.; Mrs. Nuby (Maria) and Mrs. Colhorpe (Catherine), both in Montreal.
