ANOTHER OLD SETTLER GONE It is our melancholy duty this week to announce the death of Samuel Howden, Sr., of Watford. The deceased at the time of his death, aged 62 years, was a native of the County Fermaugh, Ireland, from where he emigrated to Upper Canada in the year 1835. He settled in the Township of Albion, where he resided four years. From thence he moved to Toronto, a short time before called Little York. During his stay there he was on active duty in assisting to quell the rebellion that existed in 1838 and 1839. He afterwards removed himself and family to the Township of Walpole, in the County of Haldimand, where he resided nine years engaged in agricultural pursuits. From thence he removed in the latter part of 1854, to the Township of Warwick, where he purchased a farm on the Main Road, near Wisbeach, where he again engaged in agricultural pursuits. In the year 1868, he was elected as Deputy-Reeve, his competitor being John D. Eccles, Esq., the vote being a tie, the then Township Clerk gave the casting vote in favor of Mr. Howden, thus enabling him to hold a seat in the County Council for the Township of Warwick, together with the present Reeve of Watford, who was Reeve in that year. Deceased removed to Watford in 1873. In the year 1874 Watford became incorporated as a village, when he was appointed Clerk to the embryo Council, a position which he held with credit to himself and the Council up to the time of his death. In private life he was a consistent member of the Orange order for many years, Conservative in politics, at the same time having a large measure of Christian charity, freely and frankly according to others, the same right to exercise their own judgement as he enjoyed himself. Of a social, unassuming and warm hearted disposition to all with whom he became associated with, both in private and public life, he was respected and esteemed, as was strikingly evinced by the large concourse of those who attended and followed his remains to their last resting place, Wisbeach cemetery, on Monday last, 17th inst. a very eloquent and impressive sermon was delivered by the officiating clergyman, Rev. J. Kennedy of Adelaide.
