Mr. John E.

The deceased had been in his usual rugged health up to a short time previous to his demise and had been out at Nomination Meeting and had taken a keen interest in the elections. Influenza followed by pneumonia was the cause of his sudden taking off. The late Mr. Lawrence had lived in Grimsby, as a boy, many years ago, and moved from here to the Muskoka district, returning to this section about 11 years ago, to work on Mr. J.M. Metcalfe farm; and he had lived here continuously ever since, working for the past 3 years for Mr. Murray Fitch. About 8 years ago Mr. Lawrence married Miss Anne MacInnes and she, with two small children, survives him; a brother in the west and a sister in the Muskoka district also surviving. The funeral of Mr. Lawrence took place on Sunday afternoon, January 19th, 1919, and was very largely attended, being under the auspices the Local IOOF of which the deceased gentleman was a member with Rev. L.H. Currie officiating. The pallbearers were Chas. T. Farrell, Jas. I. Theal, H.H. Marsh, T.E. Mannel, Geo. E. Miller and K.M. Stephen....
