Elwhin Price

St. Williams: Funeral services for Elwhin Price were held on Friday [8 Feb 1946] afternoon from the Johnson Bros.' Funeral Home. Rev. P. D. Augustine, pastor of the Baptist Church, conducted the service. Interment was made in Hillcrest Cemetery, Forestville.

The late Mr. Price, a resident of Norfolk County all his life, passed away on Thursday morning [7 Feb 1946] at his home, following a lengthy illness. However, he had been confined to his bed for only two days. He was in his 82nd year. He was born in Charlotteville, in 1865, the son of the late William Price and Lucetta Johnson.

In May 1889 he married Hannah Procunier of Forestville. They first took up residence at Port Rowan West, later living in Forestville, Walsh and St. Williams.

To them were born two sons, Ranney at home and Kenneth of Windsor. Also left to mourn are three grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Mr. Price farmed all his life, until his recent retirement. He was a great lover of horses and took great pride in training them. In his younger days, when the horse and buggy were popular, he drove the smartest team in the community.

Relatives at the funeral from a distance were: Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Price and daughter Edna of Windsor, who are spending a few days here; Fred Parsons of Vittoria, Mr. William Hunter of Normandale, and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Howick of Forestville.
