The Late Geo. Veit

George Veit, a pioneer of Middleton, passed away at the Hamilton Asylum on Monday of last week.

The deceased came to this community about 72 years ago and settled with his parents in Middleton. When a young man he went into the bush on Talbot Street and cleared 100 acres and lived there his entire life.

Four years ago he had a fall in the barn which affected his mind and last fall it became imperative to send him to Hamilton.

He was a highly respected citizen, and was a valuable man in the community.

While his family and near friends have been expecting his death, the end came suddenly Monday noon, as he sat at table having his dinner.

The remains were brought to Delhi and the funeral took place from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Alonzo Mills, Main Street, Thursday.

He is survived by a widow, three sons and two daughters.
