Full Text

The death occurred on Monday afternoon, January 6th, of another pioneer of this district, in Mr. Simeon Hewitt, who passed peacefully away at the home of his brother, Mr. John Hewitt, Deer Park Farm, after an illness of about three weeks. The deceased gentleman had attained the age of 73 years, but up till a month ago, was as spry and nimble on his feet as a man many years younger. Mr. Hewitt was born in Grimsby on the old Grout homestead and lived here until he was a young man, when he moved to Brantford and went into business. He lived in Brantford up till a few years ago, and still kept his home there, although he spent most of his time in Grimsby with his brother John.

Mr. Hewitt was a man who made friends wherever he went and was highly respected by all with whom he came in contact.

In religion he was a Presbyterian and in politics a Liberal, and up till a few years ago was one of the Liberal party's strongest supporters and hardest workers in Brant county.

His wife predeceased him by 20 years and he leaves to mourn his loss four children and three brothers, Miss Edith E. at home, Mrs. Logan M. Watrous, John T., local registrar, and H. S., barrister, all of Brantford. Mr. John Hewitt, Grimsby; Thomas of Grimsby and William of Beamsville are the brothers. The funeral took place this afternoon to Queen's Lawn cemetery and was very largely attended.
