|We regret to learn that Mrs. Jas. Ahern, of Kerrisdale, of which place she was an old and much esteemed resident, died on the 4th instant, aged 73 years. Deceased lady, who was a native of Tipperary, Ireland, came to this country many years ago, and, with her husband and family, settled in the district named about 30 years ago. She was deservedly very highly respected, and much sympathy is felt with the bereaved husband and family. Thursday's "Yea Chronicle" says : The deceased had only been ailing a few weeks, but her demise was not entirely unexpected when her advanced age of 73 years was taken into account. Mrs. Ahearn came to this district many years ago, and for several years was a resident of this township. The funeral, which took place on Sunday, was largely attended, the rites of the Roman Catholic Church being performed at the grave by the Rev. Father O'Reilly.|
|At Redford, N.Y., May 3, 1900, Martin Ahern, aged 66 years on June 15, next. He was a native of Queenstown, Ireland, and came to this country when only a lad of fifteen. His home has been in Redford and vicinity for near two score years. For a long period, now, he has been employed by the Chateaugay Ore and Iron Co., at Standish. A man of probity and honor, and industrious in his habits, he won the respect and confidence of all who knew him. He was a kind neighbor, a true-hearted friend, a good husband and father and will be sorely missed, not only in his family, but in the community. He is survived by his widow and eight children, all the latter at home except two. The sympathy of numerous friends go out to them in the great sorrow that has come to them. Mrs. Ahern and the family extend their heartfelt thanks to the friends and neighbors who so kindly assisted during the long illness and the death of the beloved husband and father.|
