The informant was Gilbert Field, her husband, of 1107 College St., the place of burial is given as Jerseyville, Ontario, and the date of burial is November 17, 1925. Interestingly, the undertaker is named as H. Field of 1107 College St. It would appear that Hartley was in the undertaking business. The attending physician was J.H. McConnell, Coroner. Cause of death is shown as myocardial degeneration and death was said to have occurred suddenly. This maybe why the coroner was involved.
