Wainfleet News

[Welland Tribune, 12 December 1903]

A very sudden death occurred on Sunday morning, when John Tewsley, sr., was quickly called from this life. Deceased was in his usual health up to within one hour before he expired. When he arose in the morning he complained of not resting good through the night, and suffered a severe pain in his side, and in an hour’s time was cold in death. His death removes one of the old settlers. He came here from Effingham about forty years ago. He leaves four sons –Richard L. of Dunnville, David of Forks Road, John of Sherbrooke and Chauncey at home; and four daughters, Mrs. Zenas Marr, Forks Road; Mrs. James Hicks, Pelham; Mrs. Maddock of Buffalo and Mrs. Stephen Jones of Forks Road to mourn the loss of a kind father. The remains were interred in Marr’s cemetery, Forks, Road. His wife predeceased him about ten months ago. Deceased enjoyed the respect and good will of this community.
