Long Description:
The following obituary was published in The Daily Citizen (Ottawa), 26 November 1879, page 2. The many friends of Mr. John Smith, of Torbolton, will deeply regret to learn of his death, which occurred at his residence yesterday. For twenty-five years the deceased gentleman occupied a prominent position at the County Council Board, and, as Chairman of the Finance Committee, rendered valuable services. He was, indeed, the "Nestor" of the Council, and great weight was attached to his opinions in all municipal questions. His place will not be easily filled. His family have the deepest sympathy of the community.
