David Gilford Adair

Delhi, Jan. 12. -- The death occurred in Delhi on Tuesday, 
30 Dec [1924] of David Gilford Adair, a much esteemed resident, in his 85th year.

He was born in Beamsville, Ont., but moved near Delhi when only three years of age, living on the farm now occupied by Joseph Bell. He attended school in a schoolhouse on the farm where the orchard now is, and also walked to Delhi school. For the greater part of his life he has lived in or near Norfolk County.

Mr. Adair was known as a kind father, a loving friend, and an upright citizen. In politics he was a staunch Conservative. His love for and knowledge of a good horse is well known, as he has owned and driven some of the best in his day.

He was married to Mary Josephine Thomas, who predeceased him in 1907. He is survived by five children: Morris of Otterville, Edwin and Rozella of Chicago, James of California, and Mrs. Earle G. Dale, at whose home he died.

The funeral services were conducted on Friday. 
Rev. D. D. Jamieson conducted the services, bringing a comforting massage from the 90th Psalm. He was assisted 
by Revs. Edwin Lee and G. S. Cassmore. Burial took place in the Delhi Cemetery.
