Benalla Standard (Vic.): Tuesday 7 October 1902
MANSFIELD. On Tuesday last James H. Pitts, one of the oldest travelling compositors in the state, died at the local hospital from a complication of complaints, heart failure being the immediate cause of death. We have known him for nearly 30 years, and during that time he has travelled all the colonies, with the exception of Western Australia. Although he could have settled down independently in the old country many years, he would not do so, preferring a roving life, knowing no restraint. He has a brother and sister in this state, and sister in America, filling high positions. In his younger days he was a violinist of some note. His remains were interred in the local cemetery, his brother in Melbourne defraying all expenses. Poor Jim, may his soul rest in peace, says the "Courier." "Amen," says the "Standard" staff.
A poster, scanned in 3 parts ( badly cropped so part is missing), printed in Canada, By the Rev. Henry Bool, undated, from the Watmuff Trunk, has a note stating "Your Uncle Bool living in Canada (Married my only Sister Jane Anne Bool. (signed) Bessie Watmuff"
On the back, poorly written penciled note by Bool, says
"My lectures are given monthly in connection with ?church? ?mtunh? of Bapt[ism]
?butco dark? and Presbyterian, dwelling pro[vided]
I have the opportunity of preaching fo...
Pastors of some of the best Churches [in]
the Provinces - on Sabbath."
My Heritage, has Henry Bool and Jane marrying in 1872 and her birth year as 1839. Various Canadian censuses list their children as:
Elizabeth Rogers Bool
Annie A. Bool
Harold McKenzie Bool
Mary E. Bool (1874-1955)
Charles H. Bool
Evelyn J. Bool
Harold and McKenzie are Pitts family names, McKenzie possibly was Jane's grandmother, ie James Pitts's mother's maiden name, or Anne Tweedie's mother, and John Mckenzie Pitts, Jane's brother named his second son Harold.
