The TALES you probably never heard about


[Welland Telegraph, 27 January 1888]

General regret will be expressed in Ottawa at the announcement of the death at her old home, Hawksbury, on Thursday, of Mrs. Dewhurst, wife of Mr. E.R. Dewhurst, of the Department of Agriculture. The circumstances are particularly sad, as the marriage of the deceased was only celebrated two months ago. Mrs. Dewhurst succumbed to an attack of pneumonia after an illness of three weeks. She possessed in this city many friends who will sympathize with Mr. Dewhurst in his sad bereavement. The deceased was only twenty-six years of age. The funeral took place on Sunday last.-Ottawa Journal.
