WIMAN, Erastus, 1904
Wednesday, February 9, 2005 - Page S9
Journalist and businessman born at Churchville, Upper Canada, on April 21, 1834. After cutting his teeth as a business reporter for The Globe in Toronto, he launched his own market and trade reviews and then became a reporter for R.G. DUN's Mercantile Agency. In 1866, he moved to New York to manage Dun's office there and, through articles and speaking tours, became an avowed supporter of commercial union with the United States. He came undone when large investments he had made in the development of Staten Island, New York turned bad and he was found to have used Dun's agency money for his own purposes. He died on Staten Island.

In loving memory of Jim, who passed away June 1st, 2001.
Loving memories never die,
As years roll on and days pass by,
In our hearts a memory is kept,
Of the one we love and will never forget.
Sadly missed by Marjorie and family.
