    Obituary, The Recorder, Gore Bay, July 8, 1915 -
    Death of Jas. Anderson
    On Monday evening, June 28th there passed away one of the old pioneers of Manitoulin, in the death of James Anderson at the advanced age of 86 years, 5 months, and 23 days.
    Mr. Anderson was born at Portsoy, Banffshire, Scotland. He came to Canada in 1857, accompanied by Mrs. Anderson and two children. He settled in Pickering Township near the town of Whitby .
    Thirty-five years ago he came to the Manitoulin Island and took up land in the Township of Campbell, where he raised a family of twelve boys and two girls of whom twelve still survive.
    Mrs. Anderson, whose maiden name was Sophia Boyes, predeceased Mr. Anderson by nearly nineteen years.
    The large gathering of old friends and others who met to show their last tokens of respect to their old pioneer, manifested the high esteem in which he was held by all.
    The remains were interred in Grimsthorpe Cemetery between those of his wife and one son Peter who died in Kentucky, U.S.
