Death of David Kitchen

Mr. David Kitchen, for nearly 40 years a resident of this place, died suddenly on Friday last. He complained of not feeling well on Wednesday night, but was better on Thursday. About 11 o'clock on Thursday night he had a stroke and died in a few hours.

Mr. Kitchen lived at Bealton before coming here. He married Elizabeth Honey, at that time a resident of Boston.

He was born in Windham, learned the trade of blacksmith at Lutesville and afterwards went into business for himself at Bealton. For over 30 years he conducted a blacksmith shop in this place, and became well acquainted with the people of the village and surrounding country.

The funeral was conducted by his Pastor, Rev. E. Sheppard, on Monday afternoon and was largely attended. Interment took place in Greenwood cemetery.

Those left to mourn their loss are his widow, five sons and two daughters:
David of Waterford, Harold of Simcoe,
Mrs. J. Hadden of Winnipeg, Clark of Watrous, Sask.,
Harry of Waterford, Mrs. W. T. Creighton of Hamilton,
and Roy of Waterford, all of whom attended the funeral.
