As previously noted, on Saturday morning, November 30th, Malcolm McMillan, one of the most highly respected residents of Nassagaweya, passed away. He had been ill for some time, but it was only during the last few months that his condition became serious.
The funeral took place from his late residence near Brookville on Tuesday of last week and was largely attended showing the high esteem in which he was held. After a short service at the residence service was further conducted in the Presbyterian Church by the Rev. A. Blair, B.A. The Canadian Order of Friends, of which he was a charter member, assisted with the service at the grave. Friends and relatives from Acton, Holstein, Guelph and Toronto, besides almost the entire surrounding community attended. The pall bearers were neighbors of the deceased, namely: Wm. Blacklock, John and George Simpson, James Mahon and Herbert Fletcher.
Mr. McMillan was born 68 years ago on lot 18, con. 5, Nassagaweya, and was the son of the late Neil McMillan. He remained on the farm until a few years after his father's death after which he resided with his brother Neil at Bookville.[sic]
In 1892 he married Agnes Bell, daughter of the late Thos. Bell, of Nassagaweya, and the same year bought the property near Brookville where he resided until his death. His house was soon broken, however, by the death of his esteemed wife in 1896, leaving two sons, Linus and Thomas.
In 1876, Mr. McMillan was appointed assessor of the Township, which position he held for 21 years, giving it up on account of ill health. For 24 years he was agent for the Massey-Harris, Co., and for a number of years treasurer of Nassagaweya Presbyterian Church.
Two brothers survive, Neil, of Brookville, and A. C. who made his home, with the deceased.
