The Late Benjamin Chadwick

Benjamin F. Chadwick passed away on Sunday last at his residence, Head Street, in his 84th year. 

Born in the frame dwelling which still stands beside the Old Windham Church, three miles north of Simcoe, deceased was a son of the late Samuel Chadwick, one of the real pioneers of Norfolk County, who were responsible for clearing the bush from hundreds of acres of land in the northern townships. 

With the exception of a few years spent in the Southern States and in the West, Benjamin Chadwick was a lifelong resident of this community, and was engaged for many years in the livery business with his father, at the time when stage coaches between Simcoe and northern towns were the prevailing mode of transportation.

His widow and one son Arthur, of Chicago, remain to mourn his death. One brother Samuel Chadwick of Simcoe and a sister, Mrs. Frank Culver of Townsend, are the surviving members of his own family.

The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon to Oakwood Cemetery. The bearers were Henry Carter, L. Brady, 
W. Anderson, Jno. Calder, W. P. Price and W. A. Skinner. Rev. Green conducted the service.
