The Late John Boucher: There passed away on Sunday, the 12th inst, in the person of the late John Boucher, one of the most respected and highly esteemed residents of the township of March. His loss will be one to be felt throughout not only his native township but the whole northern section of the county of Carleton. The late Mr. Boucher was a man of striking physique, and of extremely broad and kindly views, always foremost in any enterprise for the betterment of the community and particularly for the advancement of all agricultural pursuits. For many years he represented his township on the council board, voluntarily retiring from the position and retaining the esteem and confidence of the ratepayers in every section of the township. He also for many years held the position of President of the Hazeldean Cheese Manufacturing Company, which industry he was undoubtedly one of the chief means of establishing, and which under his guidance through years of uncertainty and depression, became one of the largest and best in Eastern Ontario; later in life serving on the board of directors, and also being a director of the Hazeldean Rural Telephone Company. Besides a widow Mr. Boucher leaves to mourn his four sons – Samuel R. on the homestead; Sydney C., Horace J. and Hilary M., all prosperous farmers residing within less than two miles of the homestead; and six daughters – Mrs. John Hartin, of the township of Goulbourn; Mrs. John Colbert and Mrs. Jas. Hand, of Saskatoon, Sask; Mrs. Robt. Hand, of the township of Nepean; and Mrs. A. O. Logan and Mrs. Wm. Richardson of the Township of March. In religion the late Mr. Boucher was a member of the Methodist Church, but in this as in all other matters, his views were extremely broad and tolerant; and in politics was a supporter of the Conservative party. The funeral cortege, which was one of the largest seen in this vicinity for many years, took place on the 14th inst. From his late residence to the Methodist Church, Hazeldean, and thence to Maple Grove Cemetery, the pallbearers being six of his nephews, namely: Messrs. R. G. Baird, S. T. Baird, Geo. Bell, Daniel Boucher, Robert Colbert and John Wall.
