December 20,p.4:Thomas McKim - The death of Thos. McKim at his home on First Avenue, Shelburne, on Thursday morning last, will come as a surprise to his many friends in this and adjoining counties, where he was equally well known. Deceased took ill nearly four months ago and at first nothing serious was anticipated by his family. After a few weeks he was able to go out for a drive occasionally, but on going to his room one day he fell and injured himself severely and he gradually became weaker for the want of nourishmnet, which he could not take, and about a month evident to all that he recover. Deceased was raised in Horning Mills, his father the late John McKim, being one of the early settlers. When a young man, he carried on an extensive business as a contractor, and built a good many ?? school houses and barns in Melancthon and Mulmur Tosnwhips. Since moving to Shelburne in 1880, he has been actively engaged in Insurance business. Deceased was a progressive citizen, and always took an interest in any project for the good of the village. He was a member of the town council for two or three terms. Last spring on the resignation of Morricon Rooney, one of the license commissioners of Dufferin County, Mr. McKim was appointed to the vacancy on the board. Being an ardent temperance man, honest in his convictions and capable of deciding a question on its merits, his appointment met with the approval of all parties. He was prominent in church and Sunday School work, and will be greatly missed in this locality. He leaves a widow, two sons and two daughters. The sons are E.A. McKim, of Collingwood, and Alllen McKim, at home, and Miss Cora and Eva McKim, at home. The services at the house were conducted by the Revs. B. R. Stragways, J. Rankin, J.A. McKenzie and J.J. Redditt. There were a number of beautiful floral wreaths on the casket. The funeral was held on Saturday afternoon to Shelburne cemetery - Free Press.
