Succumbed to Long Illness
Jas. Tindall, of Adaville, died on Thursday after a long and painful illness on Thursday afternoon at his home. Mr. Tindall had been an intense sufferer for many weeks and for a long time his life has hung on a thread. He was taken sick some months ago and consulted physicians who found he was suffering from tuberculosis of the bowels. He underwent an operation and subsequently two other operations were performed. He has been gradually growing weaker and weaker and finally succumbed.
Mr. Tindall has lived in Plymouth county for the past twenty-two or twenty-three years and has farmed extensively and made a success in his business. He leaves a wife and three sons and three daughters. He was highly respected in the community being an upright citizen and a good neighbor and an earnest churchman. He was about 53 years of age. Mr. Tindall was a native of Northumberland, England, being born at Chatton in that county. He sprang from a long line of Yoemen, who have helped make England famous. His ancestors have held land under the Dukes of Northumberland, for seven hundred years, and Mr. Tindall's relations still live at Broom House, the old place, which has descended for centuries from father to son in unbroken line.
W.W. Watson, of this city, is a brother-in-law of the deceased and A.Y. Weir is a cousin of Mrs. Tindall.
The funeral was held yesterday at Adaville and the interment made at the cemetery at that place.
