The TALES you probably never heard about


Pelham News

[Welland Tribune, 5 March 1897]

John Sanderson, an old and greatly respected citizen of this township, died on Monday after an illness of only 48 hours, of congestion of the lungs. Deceased was a brother of Wm. Sanderson of Effingham, and one of the solid residents of the township. He was born in Northumberland county, England. Mrs. Sanderson died some time ago, but several daughters survive to mourn a father’s death. The remains were interred at North Pelham yesterday, and it was expected that Rev. Mr. Hutt, a former pastor, would conduct service in the Presbyterian church. Deceased was 72 years of age.
