A lightly edited partial transcription of the Simcoe column on page 8 of the 12 Sep 1901 issue of the Waterford Star newspaper.

On Friday afternoon passed away one of Simcoe's oldest and most respected residents, John O'Hearn.

Just two weeks before his death he was stricken with a paralytic stroke, from which he never recovered.

Mr. O'Hearn came from Ireland to this country, settling near Simcoe about the year 1850.

He was connected with the livery business for a good number of years, then when the Loop Line railroad came through Simcoe, he established a dray and cartage business, which he carried on until about two years ago, since which time he has lived a retired life.

He leaves a wife and two sons, Michael O'Hearn, drayman of Simcoe, and James O'Hearn, cigar manufacturer of Nebraska City, Nebraska, to mourn his death.
