p.1 Died In Port Hope - Mr. Donald McLennan, Port Hope, has passed over to join the silent majority. Mr. McLennan was born in Glengarry, Ont. in 1815, and he became a citizen of Port Hope on the 1st May, 1850. He was for eight years previous in the forwarding business with Hooker, Henderson & Co., of Kingston. Under the name and style of McLennan, McLeod & Co., he continued several years, and then conducted business on his own account until about eleven years ago. He was married some twenty years ago. Deceased was for nine years a member of the town council, and subsequently discharged the duties of Harbor Commissioner. He accumulated a goodly portion of this world's goods. He had been ill for the past six months with some disease of the liver, from which he died on Saturday. A very singular coincidence in connection with his death, was the fact that he lost five sisters who all died on a Saturday.
