DEATH OF MR. ALFRED BOOMER.
By His Death at His Home in Linwood
Halton Loses One of her Prom-
After an illness of several months Mr. Alfred Boomer died from heart trouble at his home at Linwood, in Waterloo County, yesterday morning.
Mr. Boomer was a son of the late John Boomer, one of Halton's early settlers, and was born on the homestead, lot 2, on the seventh line, Esquesing, near Hornby.
In the days of his young manhood the family removed to Waterloo County, where for half a century deceased resided.
He was an influential man of his county; enjoyed universal esteem and was for many years Justice of the Peace and Clerk of the Division Court. He was an active member of the Methodist Church and through the efforts of himself and family the church at Linwood was largely sustained. In politics he was an ardent Liberal and he was also an energetic Prohibitionist.
Mrs. Boomer and the family of five daughters, Misses Clara and Edith at home, Mrs. M. Grimm, Milverton, Mrs. Rutherford, Toronto, and Mrs. Musselman, of the North West Territory, survive him.
Being a brother of the late Mrs. John Speight, Acton, Mr. Boomer was a frequent visitor to Acton and had many warm friends of long standing here.
