A Largely Attended Funeral.
The funeral of the late John Watson which took place on Friday last, was one of the most largely attended funerals ever witnessed in this neighborhood. Upwards of eighty carriages followed the remains to Fairview cemetery where they were interred. The deceased, who was widely known and much respected, was one of the oldest residents in the county, having emmigrated from Scotland and settled near this place some fifty years ago. He had always enjoyed the most robust health until last spring when he suffered a severe attack of "la grippe" from the effects of which he gradually sank until last Wednesday he passed away at the advanced age of 73 years. His widow and two sons and one daughter survive him.
