of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper.


Tuesday of last week Anne Jane Caley, widow of Captain J. S. Allan, passed away suddenly.

Deceased, whose parents were born in the Isle of Man, was born in the city of Rochester, N.Y.

In 1867 she was married to Capt. Allan, who predeceased her a few years ago. She had resided in Port Dover till her death.

Her children, Mrs. Jennie Ogden of Chicago, Mrs. E. S. Hicks of Brantford, and Hugh, engineer, R.N.C.V.R., her two sisters and a brother, two grandchildren, Pansy Hicks and Lawson Ogden, 131st Infantry (Army of Occupation), are left to mourn her demise.

A devoted mother, a true friend and good neighbor, ever ready to do a charitable deed, Mrs. Allan well deserved the esteem in which she was held by be our residents.

A lover of the beautiful, Mrs. Allan was one of the best, if not the best, amateur florist in this community.

The funeral (private) took place on Thursday of last week, interment being made in Port Dover Cemetery.
