Full Text

After a long struggle against the dread disease, blood poisoning, Mr. Harvey Hill, one of Grimsby's most progressive citizens, passed away at the City Hospital, Hamilton, om Friday, Jan. 1, 1915, in his 49th year. Mr. Hill was a fruit grower of Grimsby who had certainly made good. Commencing as a fruit grower in a small way about 10 years ago, he was very successful and in a few years had paid for his farm and was in very comfortable circumstances. About three weeks previous to his death, blood poisoning set in from a slight wound in his hand, and in spite of all that medical skill could do for him, he gradually grew worse and upon the advice of his physician, was taken to the City Hospital, Hamilton, where an operation was performed, but nothing could check the inroads of the disease and he passed away on the morning of New Year's Day. His wife was at his bedside constantly, trying to alleviate his suffering and assist him in bearing with fortitude the heavy burden which he had to bear. The funeral took place from his late residence on Kerman Avenue, Grimsby, on Sunday afternoon, Jan. 3, 1915 to Queen's Lawn Cemetery and was largely attended. Services at the house and graveside were conducted by the Rev. T. Radcliffe, Pastor of the Baptist Church. The deceased is survived by his widow, one son, Palmer of Grimsby, and three brothers, Alfred of Grimsby Centre, Palmer of Basingstoke, and Ezra of Hamilton, and one sister, Mrs. Wm. Bartlett, Grimsby.
