Full Text

Death removed a member of one of North Grimsby's oldest families this morning, when Mrs. A.O. Bowslaugh (nee Jane Clarke) passed away in her 83rd year. Mrs. Bowslaugh was one of ten children of the late Clement Levdrum Clarke, early scholar and teacher, and Isabella Shaw, daughter of Major-Gen. Aeneas Shaw, first Vice Governor of Upper Canada. She was the last member of her family residing in the Grimsby vicinity, though one brother, Henry B. Clarke, and a sister, Mrs. Effie I. Black, of 130 South Drive, Toronto, survive. Both Mr. Clarke and Mrs. Black have been touring the South Western States for the winter, and were in Chicago on their return trip when news of their sister's death was telegraphed to them. It is probable that they will reach Grimsby to attend the funeral on Thursday in the family plot Queen's Lawn Cemetery.

Besides her brother and sister, Mrs. Bowslaugh is survived by her husband, Albert O. Bowslaugh and three daughters, Mrs. Ella Bradt, Niagara Falls, N.Y; Mrs. Bella Couse, Newark, N.J. Mrs. W.F Randall, of Grimsby is a niece and A.D. Clarke, news editor of The Globe, Fred C. Clarke and H.G. Clarke, Toronto are nephews of the deceased lady.
