Full Text

Albert Edward St. John, of Smithville, died yesterday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Roy Sheldrake, after a short illness. In his 80th year, he was born in South Grimsby Township on October 5, 1863, a son of the late Daniel and Sarah St. John. He had farmed and lived in the district all his life, moving to Smithville 7 years ago to reside with his daughter. He was an adherent of the United Church.

His wife, the former Annie White, predeceased him some years ago. Surviving are two daughters and one son, Mrs. Roy Sheldrake, Smithville; Mrs. R.E. Scott, Stouffville, and Harley St. John, of Fulton; also 4 grandchildren, two sisters and a brother, Mrs. Estella Barr of Hamilton; Mrs. Arthur Griffin, Hamilton, and Marcus, St. John, of Grimsby.

Funeral services were held on Friday on Friday afternoon with interment in Queen's Lawn Cemetery.

[Ed. there is a date discrepancy - perhaps he died a week ago "yesterday"? This would make date of death April 20.]
