Obituary: "Sudden death. Our readers will regret to learn that Mr. Thomas Cairns of Summerside, who has been a resident of P.E.I. since 1833, died suddenly at his residence on Wed. the 16th May. Mr. Cairns, who was a man of 70 years of age, was busily engaged on his farm at St. Eleanor's during the day and drove home about 7 o'clock, talking in his usual happy mood on the way, and to all appearance seeming in good health. On arriving at his home he partook of tea, and in a short time complained of a pain in the head, and about fifteen minutes thereafter, before medical aid could be summoned, he expired. The cause of death is only a supposition (apoplexy), and it would be well that in cases of a similar nature in the future, the cause of death be fully enquired into."4,5

Birth*He was born on 4 February 1830 in Dumfries, Dumfriesshire, Scotland.1 
He was the son of Thomas Cairns and Agnes Wilson.3 
ChristeningWilliam Wilson Cairns was christened on 4 March 1830 in Dumfries, Dumfriesshire, Scotland.1 
Alt-Birth DateAn alternate birth date is on 4 February 1831 in Dumfries, Dumfriesshire, Scotland; The IGI and Dumfries Parish Register show a christening date of 4 March 1830, which is assumed correct. This date is seen in the 1901 census and his tombstone.4 
(Witness) EmigrationHe emigrated with Thomas Cairns in 1833 in Dumfriesshire, Scotland; in the 1901 Canada Census the immigration year was recorded as 1845, while the 1911 Canada Census recorded the immigration year was recorded as 1831. The entry in the 1901 census is obviously in error as his daughter Elizabeth married Robert Walker in 1834 in Prince Edward Island.5,6
