Death of James R. Scarlett
Native of Woodhouse 
passed away at Ridgetown

The death took place on Sunday of one of the oldest and most highly respected residents of Ridgetown in the person of James R. Scarlett.

Mr. Scarlett was in his 85th year and was born in Woodhouse Township, Norfolk. 

An expert carpenter, he went to Ridgetown 44 years ago, in the town's boom days, and did the carpenter work on many of the buildings since.

He was one of the workmen who built the Presbyterian Church, and to him fell the task of completing the 160 foot spire.

He is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Carrie Pattison of Ridgetown, with whom he made his home after the death of his wife, and Mrs. Harry Scane of Howard.

The funeral took place on Tuesday to Greenwood cemetery after service at the house conducted by Rev. W. G. H. McAllister.
