A well-known figure in the public life of Grimsby, Charles F.S. Mabey, died at his home here on Thursday, Dec. 21, 1922, aged 56 years and eight months. Mr. Mabey was born in North Grimsby and had practically lived here all his life, and was the youngest son of the late George and Emma Mabey. His business activities were varied. Being brought up to the butcher business, he and his brother S.E. carried on the business for some years; he then went into the Lincoln House, which he conducted for many years, part of which in partnership with the late J.W. VanDyke, and also had a hotel at Lambton Mills; later he built and operated a flour and feed establishment but failing health forced him to relinquish this and he spent several months in the mountains of Arizona recuperating. Returning from there some ten years ago he secured a position with the Grand Trunk in Grimsby, which position he held up to a short time ago. Mr. Mabey took an active part in politics, especially municipal, and was four times a member of the village council - in 1903, 1907, 1908, 1918.
