Erin Loses an Old Settler.
By the death of Mr. George Martin, on Saturday, Erin loses one of its early and highly respected settlers. His trouble was cancer in the stomach. Mr. Martin was born in Yorkshire, England, 59 years ago. He came to America with his parents when but a child, and settled in the United States. Fifty years ago they came to Canada and settled on lot 2, con. 2, Erin, the present home of Mr. Robt. Johnston. Subsequently he purchased the present homestead, lot 2, con. 3, of the same township. Mr. Martin was a man of more than ordinary intelligence in his day. He was for a number of years a member of Erin Council and sat as Reeve for one year at least. The funeral on Tuesday was one of the most largely attended ever seen in his section. The services were conducted by Elders Fowler and Crewson and Rev. J. W. Rae, and the remains were interred in Churchill Cemetery.
