A lightly edited partial transcription of the Port Rowan column on page 2 of the 11 Dec 1919 issue of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper.

J. S. Thompson died in the General Hospital, Hamilton, last Sunday. 

Mr. Thompson eight weeks ago went to the hospital for treatment for jaundice. His case was critical and his operation did not take place until recently, and then it was found that he was suffering from an internal cancer.

After the operation Mr. Thompson appeared to be on the mend, but a rapid relapse followed  and he passed away as stated above.

Mrs. Thompson was with her husband during his operation and the subsequent time until his death.

The remains were brought on Monday to the home of Mrs. T. Vail, a sister of the deceased, in Simcoe.

Mr. Thompson was a son of the late 
George Thompson of Port Ryerse. 
He married Miss Maude Dickinson, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Egbert Dickinson of this village, who with three small children lives to mourn his loss.

Mr. Thompson for the past eight years was engaged in blacksmithing here. He appeared strong and robust and his death at the age of 43 years was unlooked for.

He was buried in Oakwood Cemetery on Wednesday.
