Notes for John Gibb Paton:
In April 2003 Martin Paton sent the following information by e-mail. Martin wrote "Whilst in and around Maud last month I met up with our cousin George Paton, the grandson of John Paton, John Gibb Paton's son and he gave me a few bits and pieces I felt you would be interested in. This is John Gibb Paton's obituary in the Buchan Observer."
MAUD - DEATH OF AN OCTOGENARIAN. -In the end of this week was laid to rest in the churchyard, Old Deer, the remains of Mr. J. Paton, shoemaker, the oldest residenter and feuar in the village. For over fifty years Mr. Paton conducted his shoemaking business to the satisfaction of his many customers, with rare tact and judgment. In the winter evenings a large clientele attended his shop when current topics were freely discussed, and although of an unostentatios disposition, Mr. Paton in his own quiet inimitable way with the pawky humour characteristic of the Scot, could relate and appreciate a good story as well as talk of old world times previious to railway days. Although 80 years of age, he conducted his business as usual till within the past few weeks. He is survived by a grown-up family of sons and daughters. His wife died a number of years ago."
Martin also sent a copy of an advertisement which appeared in the same newspaper in June 1915.Headed "Boot and Shoemakery Business for Sale", it states THE BOOT AND SHOE BUSINESS so long carried on by the late Mr. JOHN G. PATON, Maud, is for Sale as a going concern. For particulars as to Stock, Tools, Sewing Machines, &c., apply to JOHN JOINER, Artamford, Maud.
