Sillick, Charles (1837? - 28 JAN 1912)
The following was taken from the Teeswater News, Teeswater, Ontario of Feb. 1st, about the death of Charles Sillick, father of Dr. F.E. Sillick of this city.
One who has been a familiar figure in Teeswater, and one of the early settlers of Cuiross, was removed by death on Sunday night, Jan. 28, 1912, at seven o'clock. Deceased had been confined to his bed for some weeks before his death, growing weaker every day until the final call came. He was aged 74 years. Deceased was a man who in his youth was very energetic and accomplished feats in the bush (woods) and harvest field that few men could duplicate. When he first came to Cuiross he worked out among the farmers and helped to clear a number of farms in the vicinity of Teeswater. For a long time he lived on the 12th concession of Cuiross, and also for a time lived on concession 6. Retiring from the farm he and Mrs. Sillick came to Teeswater and have resided on Cigrinda Street ever since. He was a member of the Teeswater Methodist Church, was one of the most regular attendants and lived an exemplary Christian life. The funeral on Tuesday afternoon was largely attended, his old friends and neighbors paying the last respects to the departed.
He leaves, besides a widow, one daughter, Mrs. Jos. McKague of Cuiross and two sons, Messrs. Will and Finlay.
