One of Halton's First Settlers.
By the death at his home in Milton, on Tuesday afternoon, of Mr. Richard Hemstreet, Halton lost one of its earliest settlers and oldest residents. Mr. Hemstreet had been ill only a few weeks, having enjoyed very good health until winter set in. He was in his ninetieth year, and had spent more than three-quarters of a century on the homestead at lot 11, con. 6, Trafalgar. He is survived by Mrs. Hemstreet and three sons, Richard, George and Alfred all residents of Milton. Mr. and Mrs. Hemstreet celebrated their diamond wedding a couple of years ago. Mr. Hemstreet was a man of most sterling character and enjoyed universal esteem. He was a member of the Methodist Church and a staunch Conservative. The funeral will take place this afternoon at 2 o'clock.
