A memorial service for Dr. Algernon Woolverton was held on Sunday in St. Andrew's Church, Grimsby. The Rector, Rev. Mr. Ballard, officiated, being assisted by Archdeacon Forneret, of All Saints Church, Hamilton, who paid a beautiful tribute to the late Dr. Woolverton. He began by saying that the deceased belonged to one of the oldest families in Ontario, his great grandfather having come out from England and settled in Grimsby. His grandfather was born there and his father was one of the most honored and beloved citizens that Grimsby had ever known. He was a physician with a large country practice. The deceased, continued the Archdeacon, was well known as a physician in Hamilton. He had served on the medical staff of the city hospital in the early days with the late Dr. MacDonald, Dr. Malloch and the late Dr. Mullin, and for 19 years was chairman of the board...In closing the Archdeacon also paid a tribute of affection and regard to another Dr. Woolverton, a brother of the deceased, Dr. Theron Woolverton, a surgeon in the United States Navy...
