Full Text

A link with the early Wesleyan Methodist church in this province was severed Monday morning in the passing of Rev. James Awde, at his home 31 Burris Street, Hamilton, in his 88th year. In the possession of all his faculties, Mr. Awde continued to preach with his usual vigour and spiritual power long after he had passed his 80th milestone, and on the occasion of his 86th birthday preached the sermon at Ryerson United Church, where he was an honoured member and an appreciated assistant to the minister. Sixty-three years of Mr. Awde's eventful life had been devoted to the church. Older citizens will recall that the late Mr. Awde was stationed at Grimsby in the nineties, being pastor of the former Methodist Church here where he was well known and highly regarded. Born in the hamlet of Kirkoswald, in the county of Cumberland on the border of England's lovely lake country, the deceased gentleman, while still a lad, came with his parents to Canada, where the family settled on a farm in Walpole township. In 1869, at the age of 23 years, Mr. Awde entered the ministry of the Wesleyan Methodist church...He is survived by his wife, who was Clara J. Bowslaugh. The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from his home, 31 Burris Street, and burial was made in Woodland cemetery.
