Alonzo Tisdale

Alonzo Tisdale, died on Friday at the family homestead at the age of 87 years. The funeral took place from his late residence to the Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Vittoria, with Rev. John Robertson, the pastor, officiating.

Sheriff Tisdale, D. Robb Tisdale, Mrs. R. Boultbee, Senator McCall, Charles E. Boyd, W. P. Price, and 
D. G. McKight, attended the funeral, along with his children: George and Alonzo of Detroit, Mrs. Edith Carr of Charlevolx, Michigan, Mrs. May Burnham, and Mrs. Leah Mitchell of Detroit.

Pallbearers were John Guiler, William Walmsley, Frank Jones, Sidney Jones, John A. McCall, and Charles Deming.

Alonzo was the representative of not only one of the oldest families in Canada, but one of which fought with distinction in the time of the Stuarts.

Ephraim Tisdale, was one of the family who, rather than fight against England at the time of the American Revolution, left behind his property in the revolting colonies and settled in New Brunswick.

In 1790 his son Lot Tisdale came to Norfolk. In 1806 the father followed him. From him was descended in a direct line, Alzono Tisdale, who died on the homestead on which he was born. Of Mr. Alonzo Tisdale's children on two now live in Norfolk -- 
Mrs. (Dr.) Mitchell and Edward Tisdale.
