Joseph, who lives in New York, Henry, who lives in Cummington, New Hampshire, Stanley, who lives in Quebec, and William A., who is a well-known grocer and who operates his company at the intersection of Lockman and North streets, are the only sons to have survived.

Editorial Notes: Subject: Obituaries —Halifax County, the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia (Halifax County) Date: 07/05/98 Tuesday, October 16, 1906 edition of the Evening Mail, page 12: Ellie S. ALMON, the widow of Cotton ALMON, a member of one of the most prominent families in this province, passed away this morning at her apartment located at 35 Hollis street. Cotton ALMON was the son of the late Senator ALMON and was married to Ellie S. ALMON. Mrs. ALMON’s health had been deteriorating for a number of months, and her predicament has been recognized from the very beginning as one that is worthy of significant concern, particularly in light of the fact that she is seventy years old.

However, the news of her passing will be received with deep regret by her very many friends throughout the province, as that of a beloved “lady of the old school,” a type that is now vanishing rapidly – in fact, almost extinct. This is despite the fact that those who were familiar with the state of her health did not find it surprising that she had passed away. Mrs. ALMON, formerly known as Miss DODD, was related to the late Honorable Judge DODD of Cape Breton, who was her cousin. She was personally lovely, and she was a devoted churchwoman. Her involvement and interest in all aspects of the work of the parish of St. Paul, which church she was a member of, made her passing especially felt there. She was a member of the church. She held this position right up until the time of her most recent sickness when she stepped down as the parish’s Woman’s Auxiliary Treasurer. She leaves behind three children: a son, Dr. W. Bruce ALMON, and two daughters, Misses Susan and Caroline ALMON. She is survived by her children. Anderson, Alexander, of Lunenburg (c.1834-1907) Material Classification: Obituary Anna M.
