Photo- Norma Ford-The reason I have this newspaper clipping as he was married to Sarah Jane Moulton, a relative of mine (first cousin twice removed).
All the Inwoods in Ontario east of Toronto appear to come from one family that migrated from Buckinghamshire to Lanark County Ontario near Perth in the late 1840s. George Inwood was one of the Lanark County pioneers who trapped, fished and quarried stone for the early local roads in his youth.
A man of small stature and a life long smoker he lived until he was almost 101 years old which is a lot to be said of a man. But George Inwood, who would have celebrated his 101st birthday on January 4, 1960 died in the Smiths Falls Hospital in December 1959 after a short illness. Author’s note- someone has written 1957 in the clipping but The Ottawa Journal says 1959)
Born at Tennyson in Drummond Township in 1858, he was one of nine children of the late Mr. and Mrs. Edward Inwood. He was married to the late Sarah Moulton, also of Tennyson. Out of a family of seven children, two daughters survive, Mrs. Joseph White (Pearl), of Perth, and Mrs. Wilbert Jackson, (Mabel), of Perth. Mr. Inwood spent most of his life in Perth until seven months ago when he moved to Merrickville to live with his granddaughter, Mrs. Maynard Green.
For a number of years he was employed by the Perth Corporation and 40 yeas ago was employed by Lanark County to plow roads from Perth to Smiths Falls and on to Ottawa. He was buried at the Elmwood Cemetery, Perth.
