Carleton Place Herald– Jan 2 1914
Like a thunderbolt from a clear sky was the announcement of the death of Mr. Alfred Dulmage this morning at his home on High street, for few indeed knew of his illness. The day before Christmas he was feeling a trifle out of sorts, thought to be a slight *bilious attack. This was succeeded by an attack of *la grippe that later developed into pneumonia, and at 5 o’clock this morning the spark of life expired.
Mr. Dulmage was born at Appleton, being a son of the late Richard Dulmage, *his mother being a Morphy, the first white child that was born in this neighbourhood. He was 53 years of age. In his youth he was quite an athlete, and was well known among the young men of his day. December 29, 1896, he married Jennie Greene, daughter of the late M. A. Greene, who with one son Barnet who survives.
About eight years ago Mr. Dulmage disposed of his farm in Ramsay and moved to Carleton Place, purchased a property and made a comfortable home for himself on High street. He was a man of strict integrity, quiet and inostentatious in his disposition and highly respected b y all who knew him.
In politics he was a Conservative, in religion a Methodist, and a member of the official board of the church. His death, as it were in,the prime of life, is very deeply regretted. The funeral is ‘fixed for Thursday morning, to the eighth line Ramsay cemetery *(Auld Kirk).
