On Monday afternoon, May 26th, 1919, Mr. John G. TenEyck, one of Grimsby's oldest citizens passed quietly away at his home on Robinson Street North, in his 86th year. The deceased gentleman was in his usual good health up to within a few hours of his death...The late John Glover TenEyck was the only son of Frances TenEyck and was born at Stoney Creek on October 14, 1833. His mother was Caroline Green, an aunt of Mr. Frank G. Green and a grand-aunt of Dr. Green, Stoney Creek. At the age of 32 he was married to Eliza Jane Pettit, daughter of John S. Pettit, North Grimsby, and about that time he purchased the Pettit Farm in North Grimsby, and resided there until 1882 when he sold out to Mr. L.L. Hagar, and moved to Grimsby. His wife died shortly after the birth of his only child, Dr. John F. TenEyck, about 55 years ago. The late Mr. Ten Eyck has made his home with Mrs. A.O. Farewell for a great many years and has always enjoyed excellent health. He was an ardent sportsman and since retiring from the farm spent a great deal of time in hunting and shooting, often making trips to the West and to other parts of Canada to engage in his favourite pastime. In politics he was a staunch Liberal, and in religion an Anglican. The funeral will take place on Thursday afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock, to St. Andrew's Church Cemetery. The late Mr. Ten Eyck is survived by but one son, Dr. John F. TenEyck of Toronto.
