    David G. Taylor Of Harvey Dies In 86th Year

    The community was saddened when a well known summer resident, David Grant Taylor, of San Antonio, Texas, passed to his rest at Victoria Public Hospital, Fredericton, Aug 31.

    Arriving in Harvey early this summer with Mrs Taylor and other relatives, Mr Taylor was stricken by an illness which gradually became worse.   He was a patient for a short time in Harvey Community Hospital before being removed to Fredericton.   On the morning of his death he underwent an operation and his sudden passing later in the day came as a severe shock to his relatives and friends.

               Here At Age 22

    Mr Taylor was born in Forfar, Scotland, Feb 28, 1866, one of a family of seven children of James and Ann (Grant) Taylor.   At the age of 22 he came to Canada, arriving in Harvey Station where many relatives had settled earlier.

    He soon obtained work on the Suspension Bridge at Saint John and when this job was completed went to Ontario and later to Boston where he was on the executive staff of the hardware firm of Austin and Doten, later Austin and Hastings, until his retirement in 1929.

    On Christmas Day, 1894, he was united in marriage with Margaret Robison, daughter of Mr and Mrs Marshall Robison, of Harvey Station.   They lived in Boston until Mrs Taylor's death in 1928, when he returned to his old home in Scotland for a visit of several months.   Returning to Canada he built a home at Harvey Station where he lived until his marriage in 1930 to Miss Anne Taylor of San Antoino, Texas.   Since that time he and Mrs Taylor had been regular summer visitors to Harvey where their home has always been noted for its hospitality.

              Valued Citizen

    Mr Taylor was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, East Boston, and was prominent in all branches of the work of the church.   He was a lover of all things good and was always trying to better the lot of those less fortunate than he.   For many years he contributed many fine poems to leading Boston newspapers.   He was the founder of the Harvey Improvement Association and its first president, and was honorary president at the time of his death.   He was instrumental in carrying out numerous public projects, one of which was the improvement in the appearance of Harvey Cemetery.

    Mr Taylor is survived by his wife, one sister, Miss Sarah Taylor, of Canoustie, Scotland; a sister-in-law, Mrs Thomas J. Walthall, of San Antonio, Texas, at present in Harvey; a brother-in-law, John Petrie, Edzell, Scotland; three grand nieces and a grand nephew all in Scotland.
