      Obituary, Uxbridge Times-Journal, 25 Feb 1897:

      Elizabeth Button, widow of the late T. Munro, who died on Wed of last week at the wonderful age of 93 years, was the mother of Messrs. N. B. and James Munro and Miss Elizabeth Munro all of Uxbridge, whilst two other daughters and one son are dead. Mrs. Munro was a daughter of Maj. John Button, one of the pioneers of Markham township, who died at the ripe age of 90 years. Major Button came from New York State where he was born, and settled in Canada in 1798 in Chippewas, moving to Markham 4 years later and erecting just below the village on the banks of the Rouge one of the first log cabins in the neighbourhood. Though a man of peaceable disposition, he raised a cavalry troop in Markham and served in the war of 1812. Mrs. Munro and her late husband were residents of the township of Reach for forty years, moving to this town to spend the evening of life, and where Mr. Munro died a few years ago. The late Mr. Munro took a prominent part in public affairs while a resident of Reach and was several times a member of the township council.
