Haldimand Obituaries Robert Waite 1898

 Continuing with Haldimand County Ontario obituaries, is an Obit for Robert Waite, age 47 who died February 27, 1898 in Dunnville.

I found a record of Robert's death on Ancestry

Name:     Robert Waite
Gender:     Male
Age:     47
Birth Date:     abt 1851
Birth Place:     St Catharines, Ontario
Death Date:     27 Feb 1898
Death Place:     Haldimand, Ontario, Canada
Religion:     Episcopal
Cause of Death:     Exposure To Cold 

This seems a mystery in the making! Exposure to cold? What happened? There are no further details on the image other than his occupation of carpenter.

I checked Family Search. In the 1891 census there is:
Robert Waite, age 39, carpenter, living in Dunnville,
Charles Waite, age 40, actor
Lilian Waite, age 31
Clayton Waite, age 4

One of my husband's Connell ancestors married Margaret Waite, born 1866, died 1954, but there does not seem to be a connection with this Waite.
