Obit.-Mrs. Alex. Lindsay.
After only ten days' illness from typhoid-dysentery, Mrs. Alex. Lindsay succumbed on Friday, August 23rd, aged 59 years. The deceased was a daughter of the late Robt. Fleming, and about thirty years ago was married to Mr. Alex. Lindsay of Pakenham township. To them were born two children, Milton and Tena, both of whom have grown to young manhood and womanhood and who with Mr. Lindsay are left to mourn the loss of one who, though of a quiet and unassertive disposition, made her presence felt in the home in such a way by unobtrusive loving ministrations that her absence will be the more sorely felt. Of her father's family, of whom there were eight girls and five boys, there are five sisters and three brothers still living, all of whom, with the exception of Mrs. Wilson, who is in the Northwest, were present a t the funeral. These are Mrs. Wilson, Mrs. Graham , in Lanark township ; Mrs. Levi Blair, Clayton ; Miss Lizzie Fleming, Almonte, and Miss Annie at home. Of the brothers Hugh lives in Pakenham township, James in Fitzroy and Wm. on the homestead on the river bank between the tenth and eleventh lines. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon to the Presbyterian cemetery at Pakenham and was very largely attended, over eighty carriages being in the cortege. Mrs. Lindsay was much esteemed by all who knew her, and her demise has called forth much regret and deep sympathy for the bereaved ones.
