Hiram Poapst
With deep regret the relatives and friends learned of the death of Hiram Poapst, which occurred at the Cornwall General Hospital on Wednesday, April 13, 1927. Mr. Poapst had been in ill health for some time and notwithstanding all that the best medical aid and tender nursing could do, passed away. The late Mr. Poapst, son of the late Mr. & Mrs. Ephraim Poapst, was born at Northfield Station 63 years ago. He had a very kind and jovial disposition and was beloved by all who knew him. The funeral which took place on Saturday, April 16, from his late residence, Northfield Station, was very largely attended, showing the high esteem in which he was held. The deepest sympathy of the community is extended to his widow, who was Vella McEwan, one son and two daughters, Minerva and Garret at home, and Mrs. J. P. Shaver, Arlington, New Jersey. He is survived by one grandson, John Wilbur Shaver, five sisters, Mrs. Alice Rombough, of Toronto; Mrs. May Gailfus, San Francisco, California; Mrs. William M. Bush, North Lunenburg; Mrs. Stella Widmeyer, North Dakota; Mrs. W. Salmon, of Morrisburg; and one brother, E. Poapst of Viceroy, Saskatchewan.
