1940, Thursday October 24, The Almonte Gazette front page
Tragic Death Of Ramsay Farmer
Young Man Falls Under Tractor While Operating It Near Home

Friends of Almonte and district were shocked, Thursday evening, Oct 17th, to learn of the tragic death by accident of Mr William Earle Simpson, well known young farmer who resided on the Ninth Line of Ramsay. Mr Simpson had been plowing in a field not far from his house and when time came for the evening meal, about five o’clock, Mrs Simpson thought it strange he did not shut off the tractor and come home. She went to investigate and was horrified to find her husband’s body under one wheel of the machine. She closed off the engine and sent for neighbours who came to her assistance. No Inquest Necessary The coroner, Dr A.A. Metcalfe, was summoned and he found the victim of the accident had sustained a broken neck. No inquest was considered necessary.

It is thought Mr Simpson must have slipped off the platform of the tractor while standing up or leaning forward. In this way he would fall in front of one of the drive wheels. It was a new machine having been purchased about a month ago. A son of the late William McKenzie Simpson and his wife, the late Emma Munro, the young man was born on Feb 6th, 1908 on the homestead where he met his death. He attended Greig’s School and the Almonte High School. His mother died in April and his father in July, 1938. He continued to operate the farm very successfully being a good worker and having a thorough understanding of the business. On Oct 18th, 1938, he married the former Jean Aird, a daughter of Rev Wm and Mrs Aird of Almonte. She survives him with one daughter, Kathryn fourteen months old. There is also a sister, Mrs J. Dequettville of Almonte. Funeral Saturday.


The funeral was held on Saturday afternoon from the family residence ninth line of Ramsay, to the Auld Kirk Cemetery. Rev Wm Aird of Almonte Baptist Church; Rev J.F. Dingman of Carleton Place Baptist Church and Rev A.J. Fowlie of Almonte Presbyterian Church, took part in the service at the house, while Rev G.C.R. McQuade of Trinity United Church, Almonte; Rev W.J. Scott of Bethany United Church and Rev Wm Aird officiated at the graveside. The pallbearers were Messrs A.W. Matthews, Wilfred Metcalfe, Roy Rodgers and Melvin Rae. Included in the floral tributes were offerings from the Baptist Church Board of Almonte and from the neighbours. Among those attending the funeral from a distance were the Misses Florence and Jennie Scott of Sault Ste Marie; Mr and Mrs Duncan McIntyre of White Lake; Mr and Mrs Robertson of Waba; Mrs and Mrs A. Scott and Wm Scott of Peterborough and Miss Helen Aird, Reg N. of Boston. The late Mr Simpson was the treasurer, a trustee and deacon of the Almonte Baptist Church. The sympathy of a shocked community goes out to the widow in her hour of great sorrow.
