Full Text

On Sunday, November 19th, in his 80thyear, Jesse M. Ness passed quietly away at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. John W. Kottmeier, at Welland. He was born near Smithville on his father's farm, and lived the greater part of his life in Merritton. Mr. Ness served as councillor and reeve of the town for many years and in 1898 was honored by his fellow councillors in being elected Warden of the County. The flag of the county building was at half mast in his honor. He was for many years an employee of the Riordon Company, serving with that firm for over 35 years. While feeling the weight of years, nevertheless he enjoyed fairly good health up to a few days ago when he took a sudden turn and passed away quite suddenly. The late Mr. Ness is survived by three sons and six daughters: Dr. W.F., Horatio N., and Charles Ness, of Buffalo, N.Y.; Mrs. Asa Eldridge, of La Salle, N.Y.; Mrs. Dr. Kugle of East Aurora, N.Y.; Mrs. W. Garrow, of St. Paul; Mrs. J.W. Kottmeier, of Welland; Mrs. W.A. Black, and Mrs. George Gordon, of St. Catharines; also two brothers and two sisters, Nelson Ness, of St. Catharines, and Joseph Ness, of Grimsby; Mrs. VanDyke, of Grimsby, and Mrs. Mannie of Lansing, Mich.
