October 11,p.3:Mrs. Margaret Moffatt - Mrs. Margaret Moffatt, one the earliest settlers in the township, died at her home, lot 17, con. 5, east Caledon, on Friday, after a short illness. The deceased who was 90 years of age, was the widow of the late Adam Moffatt, who died some 24 years ago. She was a native of Tyrone County, Ireland, whence she emigrated to Canada with her parents in the years 1832. She was married in 1836, and with her husband settled on lot 17, con.5 east, Caledon, where she has ever since resided.
Deceased was a devoted member of the Methodist church, having joined the church when only 12 years of age. She was a woman of many estimable qualities, and was greatly beloved by her neighbors and friends. She is survived by a family of nine:-Samuel, of Mono; Robert, who conductes a blacksmithing business in Hockley; William, a farmer, near Charleston; Thos., on the homestead, James, of Orangevile; John, of Toronto, Mrs. Richard McCandless, of Albion; Mrs. Arthur Braden, Toronto; and Miss LIzzie, of Orangeville. The deceased was ill only a short time, and her death came quite unexpectedly. Considering her advanced age she was in the enjoyment of remarkably good health up to the time of her short illness. The remains were interred in Snell's burying ground, Mono, on Sunday afternoon. There was a very large attendance at the funeral. Rev. Mr. Burry, of Mono Mills, conducted the burial service, deceased's six sons acting as pall bearers.
