Interesting facts: Obituary of Daniel Taylor

The very sudden death of Mr. Daniel Taylor, aged 60 years and 11 months, took place at St. Nora's Lake on Thursday evening last, April 5th, 1917. Mr. Taylor was a well known unmarried man who resided with his two brothers in Hindon Twp, and it seems was employed in extensive sugar making operations for Mr. H K Woodruff at the big island in St Nora's Lake. With others, he was engaged gathering sap, and arriving at the camp, spoke of a pain and was asked to remain. A few minutes later, others came and were told that Dannie was not feeling well, whereupon he looked up and said the pain had gone all over him, and began to show evident signs of distress. His companions did what they could but in a few minutes he passed away. Deceased was a nephew of Mr Daniel Taylor of Hindon Hill, and had been a resident of Hindon nearly all his life. He is survived by two brothers, Hugh and John. The funeral took place on Easter Sunday at Minden Cemetery and was largely attended. Rev. F C Grant of Minden conducted the services both at home and grave. Source: Ancestry.ca Myrna246 originally shared this on 29 May 2012
