To Bonnie,
You asked about obit for Mrs. Salome Witty, in Through The Years, 1989. It is a very short one.
"DIED/ 1925/ WITTY/ At Alliston, Ontario on Tuesday, August 25th, Mrs. Salome Witty, relict of the late Burton Witty, in her
82nd year. The funeral will take place from the home of Mr. John Witty, Gore Bay on Friday at 2 p.m. Interment in Gordon Cemetery." Vol. VI, No. VI, April 1989, page 32.

From my past experience in reading the Gore Bay Recorder on microfilm [Interlibrary loan], often a more lengthy obit would appear up to one month after the death. For Mrs. Witty, I would expect there would have been one as she lived on the Island for so long.

My husband has 2 connections with the Witty family - Clara May Scott married Lewis Witty and Flora Scott [sisters] married Thomas James Witty, son of John & Mary Jane [Martin] Witty. These women were 1st cousins once removed from my husband. Sarah Campbell Scott, daughter of Colin & Sarah [Bailey] Campbell, is the connection.

I have quite a few newspaper clippings on these families if you're interested. But I will be away on holidays until 20th July.
