Feb 23 -- On Wednesday last another of the old residents of Oakland township passed peacefully away in the person of Mary Edy, relict of the late Newcombe Edy, having attained the ripe old age of nearly 85 years. For almost 0 years she has lived continuously in this township, moving here about 1836 from the adjoining township of Townsend, where her father, John Haviland, resided, and who belonged to the old stock of the U. E. Loyalists, and was among the very earliest settlers of these parts. From her youth she had been a consistent member of the Baptist church at Boston. For some time Mrs. Edy has been the oldest surviving member of the Haviland family, and until her death has retained her faculties remarkably well. She leaves a family of six children -- Mrs. Treadwell, Brooklyn N.Y.; A. N. Edy, Boston, Ontario; P. Edy, Ancaster; B. Edy, Echo Place; Mrs. J. Wilson, Milton, and M. Edy of this township.
