A lightly edited partial transcription of the Teeterville column on page 8 of the 26 Sep 1901 issue of the Waterford Star newspaper.

We are sorry to report the death of Mr. Wallace Silverthorn. 

He has been a great sufferer and has been confined to his bed for the past 19 months, during which time he passed through two operations, one at home, performed by Dr. Teeter, the other in Toronto.

He spent some time at St. Thomas receiving treatment, also at the hospital in Brantford, all of which could not restore his health.

He never gave up hope of recovery.

He was an active member of the Epworth League and he nearly always sent a response to be read at the roll call.

Death came to relieve him of his suffering on Wednesday, 18 Sep 1901. He was buried on Thursday last.

The sermon was preached in the Methodist church at Windham Centre by Rev. J. W. Sanderson, who took as his text, I Cor. 15, 26. "The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death."

After service they proceeded to the cemetery for burial. The pall-bearers were: Messrs. John Mercel, Frank Sanderson, Edward Lawrence, William McConnell, Richard Battram.
