Harry Zweep, forty-nine years old, Gillies
Township farmer was fatally injured shortly after three o'clock yesterday afternoon, three miles south of Hymers village when he fell from a wagon load
of feed grain and machinery and striking his head on the roadway. Mr. Zweep, accompanied by his son John, twenty years old, was driving with a team of
horses to his home in South Gillies. The wagon was loaded with a quantity of bagged grain and farm implements. It was while going down a hill on a road
leading into South Gillies a portion of the load slipped and carried Mr. Zweep, who was on top, to the gravelled highway. He struck on his head and died
within ten minutes. The team then ran away and John was also thrown off, suffering a severe injury to his back. He was taken to McKellar General Hospital,
Fort William for treatment. A Fort William doctor was summoned shortly after the accident but when he arrived Mr. Zweep was already dead. Mr. Zweep was
born in Holland forty-nine years ago and came to Canada with a party of Holland settlers, going to Campbellville, Ontario. He settled in Fowler Township
in 1927 and took up a farm in South Gillies in 1928. He is survived by his wife and nine children, the eldest twenty-six. The funeral is to be held at
