NASSAGAWEYA
The death took place on Thursday, January 11th, of Mrs. Catherine Kingsbury, at the home of her son, Gilbert Kingsbury, Nassagaweya. Deceased who was in her 93rd year, was in her usual good health until three weeks ago when a paralytic stroke rendered her right side useless. From this she never revived but gradually sank and without suffering passed peacefully away.
She was born in Cantic(?)e, Argyleshire, Scotland, and came to Canada about 1836 when the ocean trip in a sailing vessel was of ten weeks' duration. In 1838 she was married to Edward Kingsbury and they made their home near Kemptville, Ont., until 1847, when they moved to Puslinch and took up a homestead in the bush. She lost her husband but with her family retained the old home until 1872 when she purchased the east half of lot 24, Con. 3, Nassagaweya, where she has resided ever since. She left to mourn her loss, her two sons Amazish and Gilbert in Nassagaweya, and two daughters Mrs. J. Lavery, of Brantford, and Mrs. Robt. Hume, of Manor, Sask., twenty-six grandchildren and thirty-one great-grandchildren.
She was interred in the Ebenezer Burying Ground on Sunday last. The pall bearers were six of her grandsons, Edward James, Robert, Gilbert and William Kingsbury and C. A. Darby, of Nassagaweya, and D. A. Kingsbury, of Rouleau, Sask.
