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
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.
