Hi, Graham:

The Internet Archive can be a good source for old books that have been digitized:

Good luck in your search!

OhioHogue,

I'm not an expert by any means, so this would be too difficult a task for me, but I can get you started on the rest and hopefully others might be able to continue.

I think page 4 starts out with:

committs his soule to god almightie and his corpse to be
? amongest the? rest of good people he nominates
appynts constitutes and leaves? James Hog in?/Jr? ?
? his lawfull brother...


There are tips and tutorials online, in case you want to give it a try yourself:

You're welcome, Ryan. It is a terrible story and you're right: it must have affected the whole community.

It most certainly would have been covered extensively in the local newspaper. The Hamilton Public Library might be able to do some look-ups for you, since you have names and exact dates: http://lha.hpl.ca/ .

The paperwork regarding their estate should provide names and addresses of beneficiaries. It's quite a lot of money.

Hamilton is in Wentworth County. It looks like the estate files should be located at the Archives of Ontario. See: http://www.archives.gov.on.ca/en/microfilm/surrogate_court_wentworth_t.aspx

Good luck in your search.

Just in case you haven't seen the entire thing, here's my transcript:

"Murder-Suicide Wipes Out Family

"HAMILTON, Ont. (CP) -- Four members of a Hamilton family were found dead of shotgun wounds today. Police said it was apparently murder-suicide.

"Mrs. Lloyd Paddon and her 21-year-old daughter Carol were found dead in their beds and a son, Donald, 15, was found in a hallway. A trail of blood led from his bed to the hallway. Mr. Paddon was found on the floor of an upstairs bedroom. He had been shot full in the face with a shotgun."

I still think city directories might be a good place to search, if you can access them, suzilad. You could start in 1941 and go backwards, searching under both surnames. Her son (if he lived with her) might have been listed with her once he got to a certain age.

Josephine

P.S. If she was cohabiting with anyone, he'd be listed there, too.
