A lightly edited partial transcription the Port Rowan column on page 2 of the 27 May 1920 issue 
of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper.

Ernest Abbott died in the hospital at Hamilton last Saturday of a complication of diseases, and his remains were brought here by train on Tuesday for burial.

The late Mr. Abbott was a son of the late Peter Abbott, and was born on the homestead near Erie View 47 years ago.

He married Miss Ellen Martin of Hamilton, by whom he is survived, and he leaves two young daughters also to mourn his loss.

He is also survived by one brother, Headley, of Port Rowan, and two sisters, 
Mrs. Roy Franklin of Pennsylvania, 
and Mrs. Harry Welsh of Erie View.

The remains were taken directly upon their arrival to the Port Royal Cemetery, where interment took place.

The service at the cemetery was conducted by the Rev. J. M. Smith of Neal Memorial Church, of which deceased was a member. He was also a member of the I. O. O. F., 
and the pall-bearers were members of that order.

Mr. Abbott went overseas with the 133rd Battalion and was in the forestry division. He returned after the armistice and had since resided in Hamilton.
