The Late Dr. Tweedale

Dr. Joseph M. Tweedale, son of the late Joseph and Mary Tweedale of Vittoria, died at Port Burwell on Friday evening, June 24th, at ten o'clock. He had been ill at winter, but continued his practice to the very last.

His parents were early pioneers of Norfolk, having come from England. They had a family of six daughters and three sons, only one of these surviving Dr. Tweedale, Mrs. Docker of Wallaceburg.

Dr. Tweedale began his medical practice in Lobo Township, in the County of Middlesex, where he spent several years, and where in 1869 he took his bride, Miss Maria Stevenson, twin sister of Mrs. Alicia Jackson of Port Rowan.

He moved to Tillsonburg and afterwards to Langton, where he practised many years and where his wife died in 1895, leaving two sons and two daughters now living: W. H. Tweedale and Mrs. Lade of Kansas City; T. B. S. Tweedale of Essex, and Miss Ethel at home.

He was married a second time to Miss Eliza McCord of Houghton, who survives him. A few years ago he moved to Port Burwell, where he obtained an excellent practice.

The Freemasons conducted the funeral service on Monday, June 27th, Rev. Mr. Charlton officiating. Interment took place at Langton. The pallbearers were the following Masonic brethren: D. F. Williams, L. Lewis, Sol. Gordon, J. Collinson, J. Ponstie and W. Cudney.
