The TALES you probably never heard about



[Welland Tribune, 27 January 1893]

In the death of William E. Hutton, son of late Wm. Hutton of Thorold township, one of our brightest and most intelligent young men is removed from a sphere of great usefulness. Deceased drove to Winona, where his grandfather resides, on Wednesday, 11th inst., and soon after arriving there was taken ill of inflammation of the bowels. He grew steadily worse until Sunday last, when death completed its work. The body was interred at Fonthill on Tuesday, Messrs. Edgar Price, Jno. Gaiser, Harry Rice, Arthur Willson, Albert Fuller, and Benj. Lundy acting as pallbearers. William Hutton was one of the leading farmers of this county. He had graduated with honor to himself and the county at the Ontario Agricultural college, and was looked upon as one of the cleverest students that ever graduated from that institution. He was constantly introducing new ideas in farming and road work, and the locality in which he lived will long bear the impress of his progressive spirit. The community mourns with the family in the great loss sustained by all.
