    • "Many friends will learn with sadness, regret and sorrow, the death of an old and esteemed resident, in the person of Mrs. Robert NORSWORTHY, August 16, 1927. Mrs. Norsworthy had a host of friends through her character and Christian sympathies. I remember they sang 'What a Friend we have in Jesus' at her funeral. I also remember their 50th Anniversary held at the home where I was born. Grandpa and Grandma Norsworthy are buried at the White brick Cemetery on Highway 53 near Fiddler's Green Road. It is the largest stone there. Uncle Will and Aunt Mary's names are on the one side, Grandma's on the other." written by Doris THOMPSON, Caledonia, Ontario.
