The death took place yesterday of a very old gentleman in the
person of Mr. Andrew Irwin.
Deceased was born in the North of Ireland about 90 years ago, and
came to Canada when a young boy. He came to Simcoe from Blenheim and had lived here some 21 years.
For more than half of that time, he lived with his son-in-law and
daughter, Mr. Charles F. Crosbie, at whose home he died. Mrs. Crosbie was his only child, but there are also living, three
step-children, Thomas Musson of Walsh,
James Musson of Windsor and Mrs. Robert Shepard of Waterford.
