Death of Mr. Samuel Hynds.
The Fergus News-Record says: There passed away at his residence, Fergus, on Friday afternoon last, an old and esteemed resident, in the person of Mr. Samuel Hynds, at the ripe age of seventy-four years. The deceased, up to within a few months of his death was a hale, hearty, jovial old man, able to do a day's work with men thirty years his junior. He was born in Derryadd, County Antrim, Ireland, and came to Canada in 1858, settling first at Guelph, where the next year he was married to Miss Annie Goggins. In 1870 the family moved to Fergus, which has been their home ever since. Mr. Hynds, who was a tanner by trade, worked in Fergus for a number of years, but for a long time past has been employed at the tanneries in Acton, in which town he is well and favorably known, and where the news of his decease will be received with general regret. In February, he came home feeling unwell, and since that time his strength has been gradually failing, until the end came on Friday afternoon. Besides a widow, deceased leaves a family of four sons and two daughters. The funeral took place from the family residence on Sunday, to Belsyde Cemetery, Fergus.
