Simcoe Native Will Mark 
91st Birthday

An event of great interest to many friends and relatives in this area will be the 91st birthday of Mrs. C. Elkanah Crysler, a native of Simcoe, and former resident of Wyecombe and Lynedoch district, who is now living with her son in Lake Valley, Saskatchewan.

This anniversary will be marked in suitable fashion on Wednesday, 16 Jun 1920.

Mrs. Crysler is the former Miss Sarah J. Ferguson, a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. James Ferguson. 
Mrs. Margaret Woodward of Talbot Street South, Simcoe is a sister.
Mrs. Frank W. Gray of Brock Street, Simcoe, is a daughter. 
Mrs. Emma C. Ridley of Dean Street, and Mrs. Howard Hilliker of Union Street, are step-daughters. 
Numerous nephews and nieces live in Norfolk County.

Mrs. Crysler lost her husband 56 years ago, and for the past 23 years she has lived in Saskatchewan with her son.

It is now about six years since she last paid a visit to this district.

She is in fairly good health for her age, and during the past winter, when her daughter-in-law was in hospital, she performed most of the household duties.
