Mr. Lorimer was born in Sanquher, Scotland and died in Willis. He had gone to the office of Dr. J.J. Comer on business and had a 'jolly' conversation. All at once Dr. Comer noticed that Mr. Lorimer was silent. He turned and saw him fall over in his chair. (His headstone states that he died in 1911, but his family tree shows 1912. According to his granddaughter (daughter of Albert Edward Lorimer) Margo Lurvey he died in 1911. (some of the other info on here is also attributed to Margo).
