Living alone, Dr. George C. Munro, a well-known medical man of Smithville, was found dead in his home on Station Street, at about 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15, by L. Womack, an employee of C.L. Adams at the Commerical Hotel, who visited the doctor's rooms at that hour. Dr. J.H. Leeds, coroner, was immediately summoned, and he pronouced life extinct. The doctor had passed away about 3 or 4 hours previously. Dr. Munro was noticed on the street about noon hour on the day he died. A small bottle of chloroform was found near at hand and a small handkerchief was still grasped in his hand which covered his face. Crown Attorney Lancaster, St. Catharines, was notified of the circumstances, and after due consideration, deemed an inquest unnecessary. J. Vicar Munro, architect, London, was next communicated with who gave instructions to have undertaker Merritt prepare the body for burial. His father, John Munro, of London, passed away March 17, of last year at the advanced age of 86 years. Besides his wife who was in Washington, D.C. at the time of his death, there survive four brothers and one sister, J. Vicar Munro, an architect, in London; E. Christopher Munro, of Edmonton, Alta., and Messrs. A.M. and Kenneth Munro, on the homestead at Glanworth, near London. Mrs. Thos. Beattie, of Wilton Grove, near London. The remains were taken to London for interment.
