Ross Misner

Tyrrell and surrounding neighborhood are mourning the death of one of its brightest and most cheerful young men, Ross Misner, who was called home on 3 Sep 1910 after a short illness, at the age of 26.

Ross was converted in Mt. Zion Church at the age of 16. He attended the young men's prayer meeting at the same church, under the leadership of Mr. Elias Hyde, and was also a regular attendant at Tyrrell Baptist Church. When the testing time came, death, it was found he was still holding on to Christ.

He passed away very easily, death being caused by pneumonia. Deceased was a great lover of music, and often his neighbors have been cheered by the sound of his cornet or violin as it was wafted to them on the evening breeze.

He leaves a mother and two brothers to mourn their loss, his father and sister predeceasing him by some four years.

The many beautiful flowers that were placed on the casket and the large number of friends that followed him to the grave bore evidence of the high esteem in which the departed was held. He was a member of Tyrrell Circle C.O.F. and O.C.H.C., holding high offices in each lodge.
