DR. J.E. Heslop


  Funeral services for Dr. J. E. Heslop, 70, who died in General hospital, Saginaw, Friday morning, after an operation, were held in Beaverton Sunday with Rev. Hoover officiating. The services were conducted by the Masonic Order and the American Legion. It was estimated to be the largest funeral ever held in this locality. Dr. Heslop had practiced medicine in Michigan since 1887 and it is said he never refused to give professional aid, no matter how destitute the patient, or whether the call came at night or day. He made many friends wherever he went and the community misses him sorely.

  John Elmer Heslop was born of John and Mary Heslop April 15, 1863, in Lancaster, Ont. His father having died when he was an infant, his mother married Johnathan Ellis who became a most kind and loving father, educating and aiding in time of trouble as any own father could do. He resided in Port Dover with his nine brothers and sisters until matriculation into Queens University, Kingston, Ont. Graduating in 1887, he became superintendent of a hospital for the Delta Lumber Company in the upper peninsula of Michigan, where he united in marriage Feb. 24, 1890, to Palma Gaumont. To this union were born 10 children. IN 1899 he went to Bay City as ship yard's physician and doctor for Handy Bros. mine. When the ship yard discontinued, about 30 years ago, he came to this locality as a general practicioner, where he has always resided, with the exception of the period he served as surgeon in the World war.

  He is survived by four brothers, two sisters, his wife, two daughters, Mrs. Fred C. Sanborn of Baltimore, Md., Mrs. K. D. McCullough of Butler, Pa., four sons, William, Bruce and Ellis of Beaverton and James of Gladwin, and eight grandchildren..
