From the Sumner Gazette, Thursday, Oct 15, 1891:

Died - Chas Countryman, aged 63 years, died at his home in Leroy Tp. last Thursday Morn, Oct 8, 1891 of Paralytic Stroke. He suffered the first stroke last spring, hence, he was not unwarned; but the day before he died and for some time he had been usually well. It came on him suddenly, beginning in his arm, and he had some insensible which condition he continued for five or six hours. The funeral was held Saturday, attended by a large concourse of sorrowing and sympathizing neighbors. Deceased had been a resident of that neighborhood since '61. He was an excellent citizen and a good man. We desired to say more about our old friend, but being without further data, and having waited for an obituary from the neighborhood until this morning, we close by extending our sympathy to his excellent wife, who survives him, and the sorrowing children, deprived of a father's care, but who will now become the especial comfort of a bereaved mother.



From the book: Jacob Countryman - United Empire Loyalist by Dr Paul I Countryman, Et al.
