I found this while searching for my great great grandfather John Alexander Price.Also posting the OBIT of his wife in another posting. ALEXANDER - John. The death occurred in Saskatoon Hospital on Mon. July 16, 1917 of John Alexander, a highly respected resident of Nokomis. The deceased who was over 72 years old, had never had a serious illness, and it was just about a month ago that he complained of not feeling as well as usual. He was taken to the Hospital in order to receive best attention possible. Hardening of the arteries is said to be the immediate cause of his death. Fifty years ago last Dec. the deceased was united in marriage to Sarah Hadden, whose death was reported in The Nokomis Times last week. They lived for many years at Lucknow, Ont. Deceased leaves to mourn his loss a family of three sons and five daughters; Mrs. Weir, at Minitonas, Man.; John at Toronto; Mrs. Swalwell at Saskatoon; George S., Mrs. Ingham, Mrs. J. I. Jamieson, Wm. R. and Miss Eva at Nokomis. The funeral took place from the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. N. Ingham on Wed. of this week, Rev. Mr. Robson conducting the service. Pallbearers: Messrs. A. H. Nichol, J. B. Garland, A. J. Kidd, W. J. Rath, W. A. MacFarlane and A. G. MacFarlane. John Alexander died on July 16, 1917 in the Saskatoon Hospital, only 5 days after his wife, Sarah Ann, died. He had lived in Nokomis only two years. John's parents were probably Richard Alexander and Maria Perrin both born in Ireland and married in Mascouche, Oue. Richard was probably born in King's County, Ireland and came to Canada as a child with his parents, Francis Alexander (1775 - June l9, 1839) and Elizabeth Wallace (1779 - Dec. 18, 1863) The family had emigrated from the farming area of Kinitty, near Birr, which is west of Dublin, Ireland and in King's Co. Francis Alexander may have been born near Sterling, Scotland. They immigrated to Canada with their children c.1824 and settled near Mascouche, Quebec, east of Montreal.
