Michael Alguire died at 1 am on Sunday, July 21, 1918, at 647 Dupont Street, Toronto, age 78 years. He was born in Osnabruck Twp. and resided with his son, Charles Alguire, 647 Dupont Street, Toronto, for the past nine years. In 1865 he married Margaret Bender who died 27 years ago.

Wiggins of Avonmore; Mrs. John Grant of Lunenburg [I have Mrs. Osborne/Oscar Grant??]; Mrs. Harry Page of Toronto; Mrs. W. Wood of Lyons, NY. The funeral took place on Tuesday, July 23 at 10 am from 647 Dupont Street, Toronto, by Grand Truck Railroad to the Anglican Church and cemetery. The remains were laid to rest in the family plot. Rev. J. Fisher of Wales officiated. The pallbearers were his four sons and two sons-in-law, Willie, Charles, Jack and Barney, and J. D. Wiggins and John Grant. The deceased was one of the best-known and most highly respected men in Stormont County, having lived in Northfield and Mille Roaches until nine years ago. In religion he was a member of the Church of England, in politics a staunch reformer. Beautiful flowers were placed on the casket by many sympathizing friends of Toronto, including a pillow with the word "father" by the sons and daughters of the deceased, and a spray by Mr. & Mrs. J. D. Wiggins of Avonmore. The bereaved relatives and friends have the heartfelt sympathy of all in this community in their great loss.
