Following a number of years of
rather poor health, John A. Lehman
passed away at his home in the west
end of Stouffville on Wednesday
evening, Nov. 4, about 7 o'clock, in
his 65th year. A largely attended

T. Laidlaw of Toronto, was follow-
ed by interment at St. John's
cemetery, Norway. Mr. Lehman was
a member of Stouffville United
The late Mr. Lehman was a
native of Stouffville, born in the
east end at a time when that part
of the village gave promise of be-
coming an important business centre
--His parents, Joseph Lehman and
his wife Sarah Boadway, lived in
the vicinity of Montreal street, the
father being a millwright with a
business connection extending far
beyond his home village. Joseph was
the son of a pioneer farmer to the
Altona district, and his wife was a
sister to our Mr. Isaac Boadway.
When a young man the subject
of this sketch, John A. Lehman, be-
came a bookkeeper with Edw Wheel-
er and Sons and left Stouffville with
that firm when they moved to
Cataract, near Orangeville. Later
he was identified with the Maple
Leaf Milling Co. at Montreal and
then Toronto, in the capacity of
accountant. He retired with broken
health in 1929, and came back to
Stouffville to live in the brick
cottage he had erected for the
comfort of his aged mother during
her declining years and which she
occupied until the time of her death.
