General regret will be felt in this district and by many throughout the Province, over the death of Sheriff C. Dawson, which occurred rather unexpectedly Friday afternoon... On Wednesday he was removed to Hamilton City Hospital, where the operation was performed on Thursday...The patient gradually sank until 3:30 Friday afternoon when he passed away. His wife and daughter were with him when the end came. The funeral will be held on Monday morning, when services will be held at the St. Catharines R.C. Church at 8:30. Thos. C. Dawson was born in County Carvan, Ireland 72 years ago and came to Canada as a young man in 1853, going to his uncle in Dundas, the Rev. Father O'Reilly, parish priest. He came to St. Catharines soon after to work at P.B. ? dry goods store, and finally started up a dry goods business for himself where the James D. Tait Company's store is now. In 1868 he married Catherine, daughter of H.C. McKeown of St. Catharines... A sorrowing widow survives with the following children: Mrs. J.C. Mee, England; Miss Frances Dawson, Paris, France; Misses Kathleen and Tessie at home; H.J. Dawson, Ottawa; T.C. Dawson, Winnipeg; William J. Dawson, Toronto and E.M. Dawson, Toronto. Eight grandsons and four granddaughters survive.
