Snowey, New Village; and Miss Lucy at home; and three sons, George T. of St. Eleanors; Hollis H. of Dawson City, and Leonard at home; one brother, Mr. William Tanton of Summerside, the only one remaining of a large family of boys and girls. Deceased was born at St. Eleanors in 1842, and was a daughter of the late George Tanton of that place. Services were conducted at the house by Rev. Neil McLaughlin, assisted by Rev. W. H. Smith.
