Turnbull, Amos George (1863–1914)

Another highly esteemed resident of Wilberforce, in the person of Amos George Whitfield Turnbull, succumbed on Friday morning from dilation of the heart. The late Mr. Turnbull had not been in good health for some time. He was a native of Wilberforce, and married Miss Lucenia Ann Rose, also of Wilberforce. A few years ago he acquired a property at Scone and had been living there up till a few weeks ago, when he purchased the property at Wilberforce, known as Buttsworth's mill. With his wife and family he came back to Wilberforce and they were residing with Mrs. Turnbull's mother, Mrs. Rose, awaiting renovations to their own home. The late Amos Turnbull was 51 years of age. He was most popular among all classes, and his death was much regretted. He leaves a widow and three children, viz., Cecil, Lilla, and Iris, and they have the sympathy of a wide circle of friends in their irreparable loss. The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon, and was largely attended. Members of the Manchester Unity Independent Order of Oddfellows (of which Order the deceased was an old member) joined in the procession. Rev. J. Cherry conducted the burial service, and Bro. T. Lobb, P.D.M., read the Oddfellows' service at the grave. Mr. Chandler was the funeral director.
