Full Text

Stephen H. Penfold, an old and much respected resident of Saltfleet township, was found dead in bed on Saturday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock, with his face covered with blood from a hemorrhage. He was last seen alive on Wednesday night and worked all day Wednesday. The neighbours, not seeing him around as usual, became alarmed and investigated. Receiving no reply to their repeated knocks for admission, they broke in the door and found him dead in bed. A brother of the deceased was in the party that found the dead body. Dr. Thompson was notified, and when he had viewed the remains he decided that an inquest was unnecessary. The deceased was 54 years of age, and leaves to mourn his loss a wife, two sons - Edward of the waterworks department and James of the Northwest; one daughter, Annie, of Hamilton. His father, John Penfold, six brothers and one sister also survive. The funeral was held Monday afternoon from the residence of his sister, Mrs. James Hildreth, Tapleytown, to the Methodist church Service was held in the church. - Hamilton Herald.
