Obituary John Ross 1889

Death in Stanley on September 19th 1889 of John Ross aged 69 years and five months. He was an intimate friend of the late William Macmillian and one of the pallbearers at that funeral (William Macmillian died September 2nd) he was a native of Rosshire and one of the first settlers on London Road. He leaves a wife, four sons and five daughters. Few had heard of his illness and it is only a few days since his genial face and familiar form were seen on our streets.

It seems on Tuesday last, Mr. Ross had prepared to go to the Seaforth Show and had gone to hitch the horses when he became ill. While so engaged he became suddenly ill and decided not to go. He went to bed and from this he never rose, sinking rapidly until Thursday morning when he passed peacefully away. Previous to this he had been enjoying his usual good health. The cause of death is supposed to be some affection of the kidneys which resulted in blood poisoning. - Huron Expositor - September 20, 1889
