"Local Farmer Passes Away"
On Monday evening occurred the death of Jeremiah Curran at his home four miles northeast of Grafton. Mr. Curren [sic] suffered a stroke about fivc weeks ago and his strength gradually failed until the end.

Mr. Curran was born in Dufferin County, Ontario, sixty two years ago.

He farmed there for four years and then moved to a farm north of Auburn. In 1908 he acquired the farm that has been his home until his death.

Mr. Curren [sic] never married and and only sister, Mary, who survives him, supervised his household. There are also three brothers, Timothy of Minto, and John and Dan at the home of the deceased.

The funeral took place Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock from St. John's Catholic church. Father Corry officiating. The remains were buried in the local Catholic cemetery.
