A lightly edited partial transcription of the Port Dover column on page 11 of the 20 Mar 1919 issue of the Simcoe Reformer Star newspaper.


While on a visit to relatives at Cayuga, Frank Sweetmore contracted influenza, from the effect of which he died Saturday morning, 16 May 1919, in his 36th year.

The body was brought to this village Monday morning and was met at the station by a large number of his former brethren of Norfolk Lodge, No. 225, I.O.O.F., who conducted the impressive funeral service of the order at the Port Dover cemetery, where internment was made.

Deceased leaves his wife, two daughters and one son to mourn his untimely passing away. We understand that the older girl and the son are seriously ill owing to having contracted influenza.

Mr. Sweetmore had been a resident of the village for several years and was universally liked for his genial good nature.
