Full Text
The news of the sudden death of Mr. Archy Thompson, Mill Street, on Sunday evening came as a great surprise to his many friends here. Mr. Thompson had suffered from a severe cold all winter, but was around and down town almost every day. On Friday evening he had an attack which resembled a stroke and from that time gradually sank until death came on Sunday evening about seven o'clock. A. P. Thompson was the son of the late Arthur Thompson and was born on lot 2, sixth line, Erin, sixty-nine years ago. He spent his early days and young manhood on the farm. About forty-three years ago he was married to Miss Mary Johnson. Two children blessed this union, a baby boy, who died in infancy, and Margaret, who has been the constant comfort and companion of her father during the past twelve years. Twelve years ago Mr. Thompson retired from business at Ballinafad and had purchased his home in Acton, when Mrs. Thompson passed away before they were settled in the new home. For about twenty years deceased conducted a hotel at Ballinafad. In this business he often incurred the enmity of customers by refusing liquor to all persons whom he considered had all that was good for them. He enjoyed general esteem and made many friends here. For a number of years he was engaged in gathering cream for the Milton Creamery in this section. Much sympathy is felt for Miss Thompson who, by her father's death is left alone in the home. The funeral was held on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Mr. Wilson officiating. Interment took place at Ballinafad.
