The TALES you probably never heard about


[Welland Tribune, 29 May 1896]

A native of the county and a former resident of Welland town died at Buffalo on Friday evening last in the person of Samuel Hopkins. He had been ill of stomach trouble for a long time, and about a week prior to his death heart trouble asserted itself and his demise is attributed to heart failure. Deceased was born in Pelham and for many years carried on the stove and tin business in this town, part of the time in company with N.J. Clayton. About six years ago he became a resident of the city in which he died. He leaves a widow, a daughter of the late Jesse Yokom of Crowland, two daughters and one son. The remains were brought to Canada and interred in Fonthill cemetery on Monday, a large number of old friends of the family following the body to the grave.
