Obituary. On Saturday, March 6th, after a very brief illness, Thomas Nolan passed peacefully away at his son's residence, at the age of 70 years. The deceased was one who from boyhood to old age would be a very good example as he was one of those men who, if he could not benefit a neighbour in some way he certainly would not injure him either by word or action; let us hope he has gained the reward such conduct merits hereafter. Boston and Canadian papers please copy.
