The late Mrs. Dorsey  Last week we mentioned the arrival here from Winnipeg of the remains of  the late Mrs. Matthew Dorsey. We take from the Northwest Review  [Diocesan paper in Winnipeg].

The Late Mrs. Dorsey

Last week we mentioned the arrival here from Winnipeg of the remains of the late Mrs. Matthew Dorsey. We take from the Northwest Review [Diocesan paper in Winnipeg]. It says "We have to record this week the death of Mrs. Matthew Dorsey which event took place on Friday evening the 8th of January 1897 at No. 184 Austin Street in this city, the residence of her son-in-law Mr. Peter Klinkhammer publisher of the Review. The deceased had attained the ripe old age of nearly 74 years and passed away fortified by the rites of the church. The late Mrs. Dorsey whose maiden name was Ann Ryan was born in the parish of Ballana [Ballina?], County Tipperary, Ireland and left there in 1846 with her parents who first settled in Toronto, where they resided for some time and afterwards moved to Irishtown, Ont. where she married Mr. Matthew Dorsey whom she survived some twenty years. She leaves several children. They are Mr. F. J. Dorsey, at one time a well known CPR conductor running out of Winnipeg but now of Minneapolis; Mr. Michael Dorsey and Mrs. Peter Klinkhammer of Winnipeg; Mrs. B. Grieve and Mrs. S. J.
