Full Text

Known to many Beamsville and district friends, James Henry Konkle, 77, was stricken suddenly on Sunday at his home in Beamsville, and died before aid could be sought.

"Jim" Konkle came of pioneer stock. He was born in Clinton Township, the son of the late Robert O. Konkle and Elizabeth Hoffman. For many years he farmed near Beamsville, moving here several years ago to make his home. The Konkle cider mill on Ontario Street, formerly at his farm, made his name known far and wide throughout this section of the province.

He was an early member of the Beamsville Citizen's Band and a staunch member of the Orange Order. He was a member of the First Baptist Church here.

Left to mourn his loss are his wife, the former Lizzie Garbutt; seven daughters, Mrs. Frank Sweet, Beamsville; Mrs. George Grant, Dunnville; Mrs. Pearl Hopper, London; Mrs. James Stevens, Beamsville; Mrs. W. Greenfield, St. Catharines, and Miss Hazel Konkle, at home; one son, William Konkle, Clinton Township; two brothers, George Konkle, Clinton Township, and Alex Konkle, Beamsville; also 14 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
