The TALES you probably never heard about


[People’s Press, 1 June 1915]

On Friday, May 28th, the remains of Elizana Buchner, relict of the late John Marshall of Crowland, were interred in Doan’s Ridge Cemetery. Service was held at the homestead and was conducted by Rev. Mr. Turnbull of Crowland Presbyterian Church, of which congregation she had long been a member.

Mrs. Marshall was born in the township of Crowland, on February 18th, 1841, of United Empire Loyalist descent, the daughter of the late John Bender Buchner and Jane Learn. She was 74 years, 3 months and 7 days of age at the time of her death. Her husband predeceased her within a few days of eleven years.

There are left to mourn the loss of a kind and faithful mother, five sons and one daughter, namely, W.S. of Vancouver, B.C; John C. of Niagara Falls, N.Y., Arthur W. and Warren W. at home; Edward E. of West Lorne, Ont., and Ella, wife of James Ives, Chippawa, who were all present at the obsequies. The five sons and son-in-law bore the casket to the grave, followed by a large concourse of sorrowing friends.

Mrs. Marshall also leaves twelve grandchildren and one great grandchild; also one brother, Alem Buckner of Tonawanda, N.Y., and one sister, Mrs. George Storm of Humberstone, to mourn a void and loss which is irreparable.
