Full Text

We are called upon to chronicle, this week, the death of a resident of Grimsby, who although not living here for a great while had become well known, and highly popular with all who came in contact with him, in the person of Mr. D.B Abbey, one of the gate-tenders at the GTR station. The late Mr. Abbey came to Grimsby from Gravenhurst, some 6 or 8 months ago and took the position he held up until his death, with the railway company. A short time ago his wife joined him here, and they took up residence on Ontario Street...The late Mr. Abbey, previous to coming to Grimsby, had been a ship carpenter and had been in active operation of a dry dock in the Muskoka Lakes for many years; he originally hailed from Port Dalhousie. He was aged about 53 years. Mrs. Abbey is left to survive her husband and mourn her loss, there being no children; and Mr. Abbey's brothers and other immediate family, who reside in Port Dalhousie. The funeral of the late gentleman will take place this week, to Port Dalhousie.
