SUDDEN DEATH – As Mr. Wm. Carlisle was walking in his garden at Port Dover on Monday morning he was seized with a fit of coughing, and a hemorrhage of the lungs took place, causing him to bleed to death in about twenty minutes. The deceased was a very quiet, inoffensive man, and was much respected among his circle of acquaintances.

SUDDEN DEATH – On Wednesday, the 13th instant, an old and respected resident of this township departed this life. We refer to Mr. John L. Lemon. For many months he has been in a somewhat feeble state of health but for a short time before his death he was much improved; so much so, in fact, that the day before he died, he was engaged at work on his farm. About two o’clock on the morning of his death, feeling the air to be oppressive; he arose and opened the outside door. His wife hearing him went to him and found that he felt faint. She assisted him into a chair where in a short time he breathed his last. He seemed to feel that his career on earth was about to terminate as he remarked to one of his family that he was going to die in a few minutes. Deceased came to this township at an early day, and up to the time of his death always proved himself to be a kind and useful citizen. He was an ornament and pillar of the Mount Zion Church, of which he was an active member. In the house of God his voice was often heard, and in his daily walk of life his example was felt to be beneficial. He leaves not only an affectionate family to mourn his decease, but a large circle of friends. He was over eighty years of age.
