ORANGEVILLE BANNER
October 4,p.6:Thomas W. Myers - The dark messenger of death visited our peaceful community on Sunday morning again for the fourth time within a month, this time taking to the Great Beyond, a respected octogenarian resident, Mr. Thos. W. Myers. the deceased who was 86 years of age, had been confined to a bed of sickness for almost a year, suffering terribly from the effects of a paralytic stroke. The late Mr. Myers was born in England, but came to Canada at an early age, settling in Murray township, Northumberland County. In 1869, with his wife and family, he removed to Amaranth, settling at Waldemar, where he followed railroad contracting for a number of years. He then removed to Shelburne, afterwards purchasing lot 26, concession 2, Amaranth. Later on, he removed to Maple Grove, to the farm where his death occurred. In politics, deceased was a consistent Conservative, and in religion a methodist. He is survived by six sons and one daughter. The sons are Messrs. Wm., Frank and Newton, of Maple Grove; Silas, of Coleridge; and Thos. and Wellington, of Gravenhurst; and the daughter, Mrs. Wm. Besley, of Coleridge. The funeral proceeded on Tuesday afternoon to Shelburne cemetery, Rev. M. E. Lymburner officiating. The six sons of the deceaed acted as pallbearers. Four years ago next November, the six sons carred the remains of their aged mother to the grave. We extend the sympathy of the community to the bereaved in the trying affliction.
