ROCKWOOD.
The Kincardine Reporter has the following with reference to one who spent his boyhood here and is remembered with the kindliest feelings by all:- "On Wednesday morning, Dec. 17th, there passed away to blessed rest, after a prolonged illness, at the age of thirty-three years, one of our most energetic business men in the person of Mr. George Williams, merchant. He had been a resident of Kincardine for about fifteen years and during the whole of that time he held the highest respect of the community and occupied very important positions in work connected with the Methodist church. For years he was a teacher in the Sabbath school, and acceptably to the congregation, filled the position of one of the stewards of the church. In the prayer and class meetings as well as in every branch in the church service he always took a prominent part, and cheerfully contributed his time and means to the advancement of the cause of the Master he so faithfully served. In the social circle he was a companionable young man and had many warm friends. For a number of years he was a member of the lodge of Kincardine Oddfellows who honored him with their confidence by placing him in the highest office within their gift. At the time of his death he was Past Grand of Penetangore lodge, and his funeral on Friday at two o'clock will be conducted with the honors of the order. He was born at Eden Mills, near Guelph, on the 15th of December, 1857. His death at a comparatively early age, brings deep grief to his parents, brothers and sisters; it causes a gloom to rest upon the large circle of friends of the deceased and family; and the sympathy of the community is spontaneous and general."
