    There is no data for his children in the copy that I received from Mom. Either there is a missing page, or Heather did not include it in the pages she originally sent to Aunt Shirley.

    Mrs. David Moffat
    After a short illness, Agnes B. Scott, Orono, widow of the late David Moffat, passed to rest early Wednesday morning, February 25th. She was born in Bowmanville, her father being miller at the McDougall mill. When she was quite young her parents moved to a farm in Darlington Township, north of Enfield, where she attended school. In 1889 she was united in marriage to David Moffat, who lived on the farm at Columbus now owned by Mr. Ray McLaughlin. Three years later they moved to Clarke Township and lived for years on the fifth concession. In 1927 they moved to the village of Orono where Mr. Moffat died suddenly in 1930. Mrs. Moffat had a cheerful disposition and a ready smile for all.
    She is survived by her family of seven, Mrs. Geo. Allin (Jean), Mrs. W.F. Rickard (Clara), of Newcastle, Will, Blake, Sheldon and Bob of Orono, and Harve of Milton, and sixteen grandchildren.
    The funeral was held from Park St. Church, Orono, on February 27th, where a large number of relatives and friends gathered to pay their last respects. The service was conducted by Rev. S. Littlewood, assisted by Rev. R.E. Morton. The pallbearers were Messrs. Geo. Scott, Gordon Scott, Arthur Ross, Clarence Werry, Kyle Squair and George Allin. Interment was in Orono Cemetery.
