From the British Colonist of Toronto, of February 8, 1848

DIED: At Charlottenburgh, Upper Canada, on the 10th ult., in the 85th year of his age, Mr. Alexander McGruer, a U.E. Loyalist, and a native of Glendemore, in the Parish of Beleskine, Inverness-shire. He left his native land in 1773, for the then British Colonies and, upon the breakout of the Revolutionary War, although but a stripling, did not hesitate to join the Royal Standard, and, in common with many of his countrymen, cheerfully to endure his share of the hardships and privations to which they were subjected, till they arrived in Canada in 1784. Since that period, he resided in Charlottenburgh, deservedly esteemed for his public and private worth; was a member of, and, for many years past, a faithful and respected elder in the congregation of Williamstown.
