Full Text

The citizens of St. Anns and district as well as Smithville and district were painfully shocked on Tuesday, Dec. 29, to learn of the sad and sudden death of one of Gainsboro's most popular citizens, in the person of William Comfort, the well-known hog and cattle merchant. Mr. Comfort had just finished his noon-day meal and was feeling as well as usual, and had just completed the work of his week's shipment. His boys found him lying dead between the house and the barn, death having been instantaneous from the effects of heart trouble. Mr. Comfort was very stout, and possibly had overworked himself in the morning and had partaken of too hearty a meal. Dr. Elmore was called from Beamsville, but nothing could be done. An inquest was not held.

Mr. Comfort was well-known to everyone in Lincoln, particularly in the farming community, and was highly respected.
