  4. Obituary - George Dark, in Brussels Post
    24 Jul 1891.

    On Saturday of last week George Dark, an old and very highly esteemed resident of the 11th con., passed over to the majority. He had been ailing for some years but only confined to his bed for a short time. Cancer was the cause of his disease. Mr. Dark came to Grey about 38 years ago and cleared the farm on which he died. He had lived in Fullarton township and Mitchell before coming here. In the latter place, he was united in marriage to Miss A. Fursmore who, with 10 children survives him. The deceased was 71 years of age. The funeral on Sunday afternoon was largely attended. Rev. B. Sherlock conducted the service. Mr. Dark enjoyed the respect of all who knew him and his widow and family have the sympathy of the community. Thus one by one the old residents are passing away.
