(Newspaper obituary - 1923 handwritten on top)

Ferrier - In Perth, on Saturday, August 4th, Mr. John A. Ferrier, aged 72 years.

Ferrier - After conducting his harness business as usual last Friday, Mr. John A. Ferrier was suddenly seized with illness that night and death followed early on Saturday morning the news of which caused a great shock to his wide circle of friends and acquaintances in Perth and surrounding district. The late John A. Ferrier was born in Perth on Dec. 17, 1850 of Scottish parents who in the early days had founded a harness and saddlery business in Perth in which he was an apprentice. In his earlier days he resided in the United States, later returning to Perth and for years engaged in business at the corner of Gore and Herriott streets, and afterwards on Wilson street West and his products had a wide sale. Deceased was of a quiet and retiring disposition but enjoyed the respect and esteem of all with whom he came in contact either in a business or friendly way. Deceased was a member of St. Andrew's Church in long standing and in which he was a faithful and constant worshipper. Surviving are his wife, formerly Miss Katherine Buffam of Fallbrook, two sons Messrs. Bertrand and Byron of Perth, three daughters, Miss Helen of Perth, Mrs. Leister and Miss Anna of Toronto, one sister, Mrs. Thomas Gibbons of Brockville, and one brother, Mr. William Ferrier of Perth. The funeral was held from his late residence on Monday afternoon to Elmwood Cemetery. Rev. Dr. Scott conducting the services. The pallbearers were Messrs. G.G. Farmer, Peter Hope, W.J. Rabb, W.J. Flett, T.J. Devlin and John Croskery.
