Smithville Review - It is our sad duty this week to chronicle the death of our esteemed townsman, Sylvester Dennis Merritt, who passed away about 10 o'clock on Saturday evening last, following an attack of flu and pneumonia, and within one week of the death of his eldest little daughter, whose passing away was recorded in our last issue. After battling with the disease for over three weeks, his condition became so critical that an operation was performed by Dr. Ingersol [?] Olmsted, of Hamilton, on Friday morning, following a consultation of the doctors on the previous day. The operation was successfully performed, but on Saturday afternoon he gradually weakened, and the end coming later in the evening as recorded above. Deceased was the only son of Wesley and Mrs. Merritt of this village. On Oct. 16, 1912, he was united in marriage to Cornelia May (Nellie), second daughter of Mr. T.G. and Mrs. Cosby of St. Ann's. Deceased is survived by his widow, one little daughter, Dorothy, his parents, and one sister, Mrs. Ernest Teft of Attercliffe.
