DESECRATING THE GRAVE

THE BODY OF AN OLD LADY STOLEN FROM THE CEMETERY

TORONTO, Ontario, Feb. 14. - On Saturday last, Mrs. Peter Woodcock, of North Fredericksburgh, mother of the Rev. Eli Gilbert and Nelson Woodcock, died at the advanced age of 94 years and 11 months.  Her remains were buried on Sunday last in the cemetery adjoining Bethany Church, and on Monday night the body was stolen.  Immediately upon the desecration being discovered every endeavor was put forth by the family to discover the thieves but as yet no trace of the remains has been obtained.  Monday evening a gentleman saw two men in the vicinity of the burying ground, their horse being tied to the fence.  it is supposed these parties committed the deed.  One of the sons of the deceased lady went to Kingston on Wednesday to search the medical college, but without success.  The family feel very badly over the matter.

It is stated that the body of Alexander Babcock, a pauper who died recently in jail, has been stolen from the Napanee Cemetery, and rumors are afloat regarding similar depredations at other burial grounds in the neighborhood.  The general belief is that the desecration is the work of American students, whose operations are facilitated by the ease with which they can cross the river in the Winter.

Obituary - Mrs. Wm. M. Baird

It is but seldom that the quiet community of Anderson is stirred by anything out of the usual, but on  Monday, the 23rd March, 1925, Mrs. W.M. Baird, who for upwards of 50 years had been an honoured and beloved resident in the locality, passed away.

She lived to the ripe old age of nearly 88 years. This in a measure is not to be wondered at, for while trouble is more or less the common lot of all people, Mrs. Baird, for more than half a century had been visited time and again with many serious afflictions, sufficient to break up many a more robust one.

Mrs. Baird, whose first husband died in Glasgow, Scotland, was left with three small children all alone in that far off land. Her parents were in Canada and naturally her thoughts turned this way, and being a woman of outstanding courage, she gathered her wee bairns around her and started for this land. Arriving here she settled down within two miles of the spot where she died.

In the course of time she married Mr. W. M. Baird, of Anderson, a union which proved in every way a blessing to themselves and it overflowed to enrich the whole countryside. The dark cloud again settled down on this brave little woman, when again she was widowed for the second time, for after a lingering illness , Mr. Baird passed away.

As is often said, "Every rose had its thorn", so every night has its day, and while our heroine was so sorely bereft, she was now surrounded by her children, all of whom could and did comfort their sorrowing mother. The children are Mrs. John Joyce, of Napanee; Mr. James Cuthill and Mr. W.W. Baird, and Mr. Sam Baird (stepson) of Napanee.

The recent years of her life has been shadowed by much serious affliction. Many times of late her life has been despaired of, but her time had not yet come, and in a slight way she revived. The grim monster, however, was not to be defeated, for he had laid his hungry hands upon her and seven months ago she was again laid low.

Speculation did not believe that there could be sufficient vim and will to over-ride this storm, for when one would look at such a frail bark, truly there did not appear to be anything to build upon, but there was a stubborn physical resistance hidden away in that beautiful and delicate form that no eye could see. It was however now apparent to all that a great challenge was made to kindness, tenderness and medical watchfulness, and none of these things were lacking.

Mr. and Mrs. W. Baird secured the services of Nurse Menor, who for seven long weary months, day and night, watched with loving and tender vigil, responding to every call, with all the thought and patience of which human nature is capable. Her bedside was constantly brightened by the presence of her children and grandchildren, all of whom she dearly loved. A wide range of neighbours and friends were ever calling and enquiring as to her welfare. The last few hours, however, threatened to be unusually painful both to patient and children, when the family physician, Dr. Stratton, was summoned, and for hours he sat by the bedside, watching and treating his patient, with the result that Mrs. Baird passed away like a child falling to sleep, to the express comfort of all.

On Wednesday the funeral took place in Anderson Church. The crowd was immense, the feeling of respect for the deceased was intense, the sorrow and sympathy for the bereaved was sincere and cordial. The Anderson Choir sang very sweetly the selection, "Does Jesus Care". The Pastor, Rev. W. H. Truscott, conducted the service. Had it not been for sickness, the Rev. A. J. Wilson would have assisted, but he was called away. The remains were taken to Morven and were borne to the grave by Messrs. Parks, Baldwin, Sills, Card, Nugent and Moore.

The Late Amos Baker -  The death occurred on Wednesday, Sept 29, at his home on the corner of Bridge and Eyre streets, Picton, of Amos Henry Baker.  Forty-four years ago Mr. Baker was born in Deseronto.  His father was the late Richard H. Baker, a well known grain dealer of Deseronto and his mother was a sister of Amos Richardson, M.P.P., of Deseronto and James Richardson, turnkey of the Picton gaol.  Mr. Baker was the only child.  He leaves to mourn his loss his wife Amelia Walmsley, daughter of the late William Walmsley of Picton, and an only child,   Miss Marguerite, a student at Toronto University.  Mr. Baker came to Picton twenty-five or twenty-six years ago.  He came here in the employ of the Rathbun Co. and was book keeper under their agent, Mr. Jacob Johnson, at Lake’s wharf.  After some years he severed his connections with Rathbuns and took a position as book keeper with Mr. A. W. Hepburn.  He was with Hepburns until about seventeen years ago when he purchased the livery business of Mr. L. T. Vonce.  Some fifteen years ago he went into partnership with Mr. George Sexsmith in the grain brokerage business.  The firm was engaged extensively in buying for Richardsons of Kingston.  Besides the grain business, Mr. Baker was extensively interested during this time in many private enterprises of a more or less speculative nature.  He was also agent for the Lake Ontario and Bay of Quinte Navigation Co. in Picton for many years.  When the Homestead Canning factory was started some three or four years ago by the Richardsons, Mr. Baker was made manager and this position he held till the time of his death  The funeral will take place on Friday.  Interment in Glenwood cemetery.

MRS. W.S. BAKER -

NEWBURG, Sept. 26 - This district mourns the loss of a well-known and highly respected resident in the person of Mrs. W. S. Baker, whose death took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Clancy.  Although she had not been in the best of health for some months, her passing was very sudden.

She was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Sexsmith of Wesley and by her kindly disposition won the esteem of a wide circle of friends.  Practically all her life she had been a faithful member of the Wesley United Church and was particularly interested in the work of the women’s Missionary Society and the Ladies Aid Society.

During the few years she resided in Newburg, she attended the local church.  She had intended coming to Newburg in the near future to spend the winter at her home.  Just two weeks ago she was in the village and opened her home.  She leaves to mourn her loss five sisters, Mrs. Wesley McGill of Newburg, Mrs. Eliza Fitzgerald of Flint, Mich., Mrs. Robert McGill of Centreville, Mrs. Martha Detlor of Arden and Mrs. Robert Nugent of Wesley;  also a brother Edward Sexsmith of Wesley.  There are also several nephews and nieces.

The funeral service was held at the Wesley United Church and was in charge of Rev. E. F. Swayne.  The large attendance and the beautiful floral tributes evidenced the esteem in which she was held.  Interment was made in the family plot, Camden V. Cemetery.  The pall-bearers were six nephews, Harold Nugent, S. E. Winter, Roy McGill, George McGill, Henry Eves and James Alexander.

During the service Mr. and Mrs. Ward Wartman sang, “The Old Rugged Cross.”  A sister, Mrs. Fitzgerald of Flint, was not able to attend the funeral.  About a month ago she had the pleasure of visiting with Mrs. Baker.

Whitford S. Baker - One hundred and twenty-five years ago, Peter Baker, the grandfather of Whitford S. Baker moved into Camden and settled on the farm recently vacated by the deceased in the 5th Con. of Camden.  After the grandfather’s death, the eldest son, Jacob M. Baker, with his wife, nee Mahala Ann Collier, continued  on the farm.  Here also after his father, W. S. Baker lived until, in the fall of 1926, owing to ill health, he sold the farm and moved into the village of Newburgh.  In 1902, he married Louise Sexsmith, daughter of William Sexsmith of the same neighbourhood.  In early youth, Mr. Baker united with the Methodist Church at Wesley and continued a member of the same and the United Church until his death.  All his life, Mr. Baker maintained the Family Altar in his home.  After moving to Newburgh he seemed to improve considerably in healthy, so that his friends hoped that by resting from the strenuous life of active farming he might be spared to live many years.  However, the will of the Lord was not so, for very suddenly after only a brief illness he was not for God took him  on Nov 27th 1927.  The funeral service was held in the U. C., Newburgh on Tuesday, Nov. 29th, conducted by his Pastor, Rev. T. H. P. Anderson.  A very large gathering of his former friends and neighbours was present.  Interment was in the family plot in the cemetery at Camden V., where with the only two children born to him, await the Resurrection morning.  There are left to mourn, his widow, one brother, A. C. Baker of Napanee, and one sister, Mrs. R. B. Price of Camden.  A quiet unassuming man, industrious and a good neighbour, a faithful member of the Church of God, his presence will be missed, but his life and memory will continue a benediction to all who knew him intimately.

MRS. WILLIAM BALLANCE  -  On Thursday, Oct. 14th, 1915, there passed to the great beyond Elizabeth Loyst, dearly beloved wife of Wm.

Mrs. Balance, a resident of Deseronto for about three years, passed away at her home on Monday, April 13th.  Mrs. Balance, who had not enjoyed good health for some considerable time, had, however, been confined to her bed but for a short time.

Born at Colebrooke, her maiden name was Newman.  She received her education from Newburgh Academy after which she taught school for some time.  In the year 1885 she was married to Mr. Robert Ballance, who predeceased her nine years ago.  All of their married life was spent in or near Selby.

Surviving are her four daughters, Misses Florence and Vera, former teachers at Cherry Valley and Picton who lived with their mother, Mrs. Aylsworth, of Madoc, and Mrs. W. H. Smith, of Schenectady, N.Y.; all of whom were with her at the time of her death.  Four sisters also survive, Mrs. Loan, Mrs. Sawyer and Miss Augusta Newman, all of 512 Hamlin St., Watertown, N.Y.;  and Mrs. Jas. McCormick, of Switzerville.  One brother, Mr. Fred Newman, of Picton, is also living.

Mrs. Ballance had made many warm friends and was loved by all who knew her.  Though she suffered much at times, she never allowed her physical condition to disturb her bright wit or to cast a shadow over her cheery face.  Always it was a pleasure to visit this charming lady and the place now left vacant by her death will be felt, not only by her immediate family, who have the sympathy of the community at this time, but by all who were privileged to know her.

ORVILLE BARRAGER -

The many friends of Orville Barrager were shocked to hear of his passing to his eternal rest at the General Hospital, Toronto, on Sunday, May 29th, after a short illness. 

Orville, who was in his 18th year, was taken ill on the 22nd of May, and when it was found he was suffering with pneumonia, was taken to the General Hospital.  Knowing of his serious condition, the relatives were notified and his mother left immediately to be with him in Toronto, where she stayed until the time of his death, but all that love and medical aid could do proved of no avail.

DIED - In this town on  the 11th instant, MRS NANCY BARTLET, consort of SMITH BARTLET Esq. in the 36th year of her age.  A gradual decline, of nearly two years, terminated her active and useful life.  On the 14th her remains were attended to the place of interment, by the inhabitants of the town generally, with every mark of sympathy and respect.

Mrs. Bartlet possessed a sensible and discriminating mind engaging manners and ready vivacity.  With versatile powers and inflexible perseverance, she accomplished more in half the allotted term of life, than the less ardent and energetic, in the full period of three score years and ten.  An exemplary wife and a devoted mother in the domestic circle she shone pre-eminently.  There her affections and her virtues centered.  There “her duties walked their daily round.”  For her family, her exertions were unwearied.  To them her thoughts and her attentions were dedicated, and even the alternate prevalence of hope and fear, arising from the variable nature of her disease, could scarcely abate her solicituded for those who were most dear.  For them she had lived;  and in the affection of her husband and the fair promise of her children, her heart was reaping its reward.  Thus blest and blessing, she was summoned to resign this life and all its endearments and most flattering prospects.  A humble trust in a reconciled God enabled her to receive  the summons with submission, and to meet the king of terrors without dismay.

One of the highest and most respected residents of North Fredericksburgh passed away at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Peter Laughlin, Deseronto, on July 31st, in the person of Mrs. Rebecca Bartley at the age of nearly 82 years. Deceased whose maiden name was Rebecca Curtis, was born at Harlowe, Ont.,  one of a large family of which three remain, Mrs. C.H. Bedingfield, of Maple, Ont., and Mrs. J.E. Sexsmith of Richmond Township, are sisters, and one brother John Curtis, living near Northbrook, Ont. She was one of a loving disposition, and thoughtful of others. A loving mother and a true friend to everyone. She had been in failing health for a number of years, but was as well as usual until on the Friday preceeding her passing, when she suffered a stroke and in spite of loving hands to minister and the doctor's care she quietly slipped away on Tuesday morning at 3 o'clock. She leaves to mourn her loss three children, Margaret (Mrs. Peter Laughlin), Maude (Mrs. John Galt), and Edward, from whose home the funeral was held on Thursday afternoon at Bethany United Church.

He spoke very feelingly of the true christian spirit she possessed and of her hope of heaven. The casket was covered with many floral tributes, which showed the esteem in which she was held by her family and others. Her husband predeceased her 22 years and her son, Charlie, was drowned in Lake Superior 29 years ago. Another son died in infancy. Her remains were laid to rest in Bethany cemetery by the side of her husband. The pallbearers were H.H. Galt, Archie Amey, W.C.Joyce, Ed Conger, Jas. Davis and M.H. Martin.

JUSTICE BASS - Brother Justice Bass was born on the 25th of November, 1818, and died on the 24th day of January, 1887, leaving an aged widow, and a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn their loss.  He spent the greater part of his life in the township of Augusta, where he was much respected by all classes of the people.  Like his brother James, whose obituary notice appeared in the CHRISTIAN GUARDIAN, January 6th, he was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Augusta for over fifty years.  He lived a life in Christ so true and pure, that one might follow him through this life as he followed his Master, not simply in form, but with strong faith in Christ;  having believed for many years that true happiness is found only in Christ, he had great peace and was not disappointed when death came.  He successfully held the office of steward in the church for several years, until his son, J. W. Bass, entered into his labors. He lived to see nearly all his children converted and members of the Methodist Church.  His death was sudden.  He retired to rest on Saturday evening, January 22nd, as well as usual;  on the following Monday morning he was numbered with the dead.  On being reminded that he was very ill and it was probable that death would soon release him from his sufferings, he said;  “I am ready to go any minute.”  He died trusting in Christ.  At his funeral a large number of people gathered in the Methodist Church showing their sympathy for the bereaved and their respect for the deceased.  [signed]  S.

Drowned While Bathing -

Reginald Beasley, a young farmer of Adolphustown, was drowned at the sand banks about a mile down the river on Sunday morning.  Mr. Beasley, with a number of other men were bathing and he evidently took a cramp and sank in fifteen feet of water.  His companions immediately tried to render assistance, but it was nearly two hours before the body was recovered.  Master Harry McCumber found the body and Master Willie Maracle brought the body to the surface by diving.  The remains were taken to Messrs Ming & Hambly’s undertaking parlors.  Mr. Beasley was a returned soldier and some time ago purchased the Buck farm in Adolphustown through the soldiers settlement board.  He expected to be married next month to a daughter of Mr. Boomhower who is living on the Spencer farm, where deceased was spending the weekend.

 

ADOLPHUSTOWN -

A sad fatality occurred on Sunday morning last, when a bright young life was lost to our community, in the death of Reginald Beasley.  Reggie, with a few companions, was bathing in the Napanee river, when suddenly he sank to the bottom, where his body was recovered some hours later.  Reggie enlisted for overseas service in the early stages of the war, with the local corps, and his faithfulness and bravery were recognized by his winning the D. C. M.  The funeral took place from S. Alban’s church on Tuesday afternoon, a large congregation being present to show their sympathy with the bereaved family.  The bearers were Messrs. M. Anions, H. Smith, A. Hines, G. Gurney, F. Goddard and W. McCrudden, all being in soldier uniform.  Interment was made in S. Alban’s churchyard.

OBITUARY - Aylsworth Perry Bowen Bell. 

The subject of this sketch, Aylsworth Perry Bowen Bell, was born in the Township of Camden, County of Addington, Ont., on the farm now owned by Alfred M. Bell on the last day of November, 1840.  He has always lived near his birthplace, with exception of the past three years, which he spent with his children in the Canadian West and in Michigan.  He was the seventh son of John and Sarah Bell, who both predeceased him.  There was a large family of children, eight sons and four daughters, and “Bowen” as he was familiarly know, was the last to pass out.  Mr. Bell was married to Thressa Breault, of Camden on July 3rd 1864, thus they celebrated their golden wedding more that a year and a half ago.   To this union was born six sons and three daughters.  Besides one boy who died in infancy, there have also passed to their reward, Amelia in 1906, and Seymour in 1910, thus leaving besides the heartbroken widow, who also is striken in years, four sons, Elwell, of Napanee;  Wellington of Saskatchewan;  Rev. E. Frazer of Freemont, Mich.;  Rev. Aylsworth B., of Buffalo Centre, Iowa, and two daughters, Bathilda and Edith, also of Saskatchewan.   Mr. Bell has always been a consistent member of the Methodist Church, having been converted in his youth at revival meetings held at Lynn, by his brother, Rev. J. D. Bell.  He was educated at Newburgh Academy, graduating from there with a second class teachers certificate when he was 19 years of age.  He taught school for several years before settling upon his farm at Wesley.  Mr. Bell is a man who is widely known and highly respected by all, old and young and will be mourned by a wide circle of friends.  He was a hardworking and dutiful father and a faithful husband, and will be missed by one and all.  Truly we can say of him, “Thou shalt be missed because thy place will be vacant.”  No task was too hard and no sacrifice too great for him if the happiness of his family were concerned, and while we miss father and mourn him as gone from us, yet we can only remember that the Good Gardener has just seen fit to transplant our loved one in that great expanse where he may develop and grow in happiness and felicity throughout eternity.   And so while we say sadly, “good-bye father”, yet we also add, your life was an inspiration to us to live, so as to meet you with all our loved ones in that better land.  Mr. Bell passed away December 24th, 1915, at his home in Napanee.  Funeral took place there from on Sunday Dec. 26th at 2 o’clock.  Thus all that is mortal of one we loved has been bid away, but his memory shall be green as long as we live, for form the sundown of his long and useful life shall remain that beautiful afterglow that will lighten the pathway of many a way-worn traveller.

OBITUARY - THE LATE H. F. BELL -

Obituary - Mrs. John Albert Ball

It is with sorrow that we report the death of Mrs. John Albert Bell, which took place at her home, on Tuesday evening, Dec. 28th, 1926, following a brief illness. She was the daughter of godly parents, namely, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. L. Lloyd, who were devoted members of the Wesleyan Methodist church. It was on July 9th, 1854, in North Fredericksburgh Township, that she was born into this Christian home, surrounded with the atmosphere of a living and vital religion in her parents' lives. It is not surprising that at the early age of 9 years, she experienced a new found joy in her own conversion and consecration to Jesus Christ as her Saviour, and in His service she continued with all diligence to add to her knowledge, virtue, grace and godliness.

In the year 1879, she was united in marriage to Mr. John Albert Bell. This proved to be a most happy union of two lives consecrated to their Saviour's service, and continued to strengthen through their varied experiences of 47 years of married life. In part perhaps this was due to the fact that during their courtship days, she by her Christian influence, won him to the Lord Jesus Christ. Thus one in heart, life and ideals, they walked the way of life most happily together. However, on Tuesday evening, December 28th, this happy bond was broken; our consolation is "She is not for God took her" - "Servant of God well done, Thy glorious warfare's past, The battle's fought, the race is won, And thou art crowned at last."

From her earliest years she manifested a zealous desire to follow in the paths of righteousness and thus pressing on in this way developed a noble, pure and beautiful character, which eventually brought forth much fruit in strenuous and untiring labours for the church of her choice. For many years she has been an ardent supporter of Christian stewardship of her means, time and personality. This explains why she was always willing, not only to be a member of our Women's Missionary Society, Ladies' Aid, Sunday School and class, but an energetic leader and worker in all our church enterprises. She was one to whom we could look in our problems for wise counsel and guidance. Her restless activity and youthfulness of spirit made us feel that she was younger than years would say. But now her voice is silent and her heart and hands are at rest. Is it possible for such a life to cease without it being most sadly missed? No. In her home her saintly influence counted greatly through all the years, as a true helpmate to her husband and a loving mother to her children. Though not too robust in health, yet she maintained a spirit of cheerfulness that was an inspiration to her husband, children and grandchildren, who will remember her with loving hearts, for her devoted and unselfish life, her large-heartedness, and wise counsels.

The funeral service, conducted by her Pastor, was very largely attended and was very fittingly held in the Brick Church,, Morven, being the place of worship that her father helped to build over fifty years ago; also for the reason that ever since her childhood, it has been her church home, and very rarely was she absent from the Sunday School, Class, or public worship in this church when she was physically able to be present. Her regularity in attending and attentiveness to the preaching of the gospel has always been an inspiration to her Pastor.

She will be greatly missed, not only in her home, but from our church and kindred societies, also from the circle of our neighbourhood, for we feel that every phase of our community life has been enriched by her life.

Of her immediate relatives, he leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, Mr. John Albert Bell, and one daughter, Mrs. Clarence Sharp, and her grandchildren; also two sisters, Mrs. Sam Bell and Mrs. M.N. Empey.

Late Bertha E. Bennett -

Passed away Jan. 24th at the early age of 29 years, Bertha E. Bennett, only daughter of A.W. Hawley, of North Fredericksburgh, and beloved wife of James G. Bennett of Kingston. Her disease, consumption, threatened seriously over a year ago, and for change of climate she was taken to Michigan to spend the summer with her mother-in-law, Mrs. Drury. She still failed in health, and, in October, returned to Canada to gradually fade away. In youth she experienced the saving power, lived an earnest Christian life, and during her illness was patient and resigned to the heavenly will. Nearly six years ago she was married to J.G. Bennett, then of Toronto. During her stay in Kingston she made a host of friends, and no enemies. She many times desired to be at rest, and was ready at any moment to slip her hand in the great palm of a loving Saviour, and cross the dark river, which, when she had stepped in, mysteriously became "only a little brook." A few hours before she died, she said, "Do they think I am dying? I wish I was; I am so happy. I see all the good things before me now."  Shortly after, she crossed the river, very calmly, without a struggle, to pillow her head on the bosom of her Father, who she loved and served so well. She leaves a sorrowing husband and a bright little boy of three years to mourn for a loving and kind wife and a gently and considerate mother.

DAVID BETZNER - Was respected and esteemed by all who knew him.  He was a good man of varied talents and industrious beyond many, and had saved quite a competency.  He knew how to get, he knew how to save, and he knew how to give, and that is what few do know.  His ancestors came from Germany to Pennsylvania, and his parents were among the earliest settlers in Waterloo county, in Canada.  David was born in 1801, and was the first white child born in that county.  His ancestors were Tankers, and he was converted at an early age and united with that church.  About thirty years ago he united with the New Connexion Methodist at Copetown.  From that time he was known far and near as the ministers’ friend.  How many have enjoyed the hospitality of his home and the cheer of his Christian counsel and liberality.  Though living to a great age, he retained all his faculties of body till the last. He retained the cheer and vivacity of youth even down to old age.  His last sickness was protracted and painful, but he never murmured, and often spoke of his joy and trust in the Saviour.  Many who read those lines will be saddened at the loss of an old familiar friend.  He passed away on March 16th, 1886, at the ripe old age of 85 years, two months and seven days.  His remains were borne to their resting place by his five sons and a nephew, who are walking in his footsteps.  A large concourse of friends and acquaintances met to pay a tribute of respect to his memory, while we endeavoured to discourse upon Prov. xxii 1, he having made this better choice.

The Late D.D. Bogart -

We copy the following from the Belleville Intelligencer, Mr. Bogart having many friends in this city:

A very general feeling of sorrow has been occasioned by the death of the late D.D. Bogart, who, as an old resident of Belleville, and one who had done much to improve and beautify the town, was esteemed and honored by many even of those who knew him by name only. Mr. Bogart, who was a son of the late Abraham Bogart of Adolphustown, was 67 years old. He came to Belleville about 28 years ago, and was one of the pioneers in the lumber trade. For several years he carried on a large business, in partnership with his brother, Abraham and Cornelius, in the steam saw mill on the island, which was erected by them. Some years ago he left that business and engaged largely in building operations, putting up the Post office block, the block opposite the Town Hall, a large double house, near his own residence, and in addition began the erection of the Metropolitan hall and Consolidated Bank. All these buildings are of the most excellent character, evincing the taste, liberality and enterprise of their proprietor, besides which their construction has largely benefitted the town by arousing an emulative spirit in those intending to build, and so greatly improving the character of the structures since built here. Deceased was a man who was universally respected in the town and country about, wherever known. He was of a retiring disposition, and never, so far as we are aware, was even a candidate for any office in the gift of the people, though often solicited to become so. He was an adherent of the Free Church, in the affairs of which he took a lively interest; and contributed largely towards the Church improvements made a few years ago. The record left by Mr. Bogart is that of an enterprising and honorable man. Would that others who survive him might prove as true friends to the town and apply their means as usefully.

(Rev. Canon)

 

Canon Bogart of Belleville, Dead – After a long patiently borne illness, the Rev. Canon David Ford Bogart passed away at his home on Commercial Street, Belleville, on Thursday, Nov 19th.  Prior to the closing of St. John’s Church on Murney’s hill a little over two years ago, his health had not been of the best and it was owing to his indisposition in the main that services in that church were discontinued.  He had had a slight stroke.  Recently he was confined to his home.  A pathetic feature of his demise is that he leaves a widow who is herself an invalid.  Rev. Canon Bogart was born in Brockville seventy-three years ago.  He was educated at Upper Canada College and Trinity University;  Toronto, at both of which institutions he distinguished himself in studies and on the campus, having been captain of the U.C.C. cricket team and also of that at Trinity, proceeded to the degree of M.A. and was ordained deacon in 1865 and to the priesthood in 1866.  He first ministered at Tetley and became curate to his brother, Rev. James John Bogart, then parish priest at Napanee, but now the Venerable Archdeacon Bogart of Ottawa.  Later he became incumbent of Selby and Salmon River and in 1883 became rector of St. John’s Anglican Church in West Belleville.  Here he was the second and last rector, as he occupied the pulpit until the sanctuary was closed.  The late Canon Bogart was known to all classes of citizens and his prolonged illness had called forth many expressions of deep regret.  His widow whose illness has been of even longer duration has the deepest sympathy of the public.  Canon Bogart is not survived by any family.  He leaves two nephews, Clarence Bogart, general manager of the Dominion Bank, and Mortimer Bogart of the Dominion  Bank, Montreal.  An intimate cousin of deceased is Mr. Beverly Jones, solicitor for the Canada Permanent Loan and Savings Co.  Canon Bogart’s funeral was held on Saturday, Nov 21st in St. Thomas’ church.  Interment at Brockville.

Death of Mr. L.L. Lazier (sic), Playmate of the Premier

One of the Last of the Survivors of the Original U.E. Loyalists - A Man Who Was Long Lived and Who Was Universally Esteemed - He was Well-to-do

Lewis Lazier Bogart died at his late residence at Gosport on Dec. 24th. He was one of the last of the first generation of descendants of the U.E. Loyalists in this section, his father being one of the company who landed at Adolphustown in 1776, over a century ago. He was born within a mile of the place where he lived, having purchased and settled with his bride, Elizabeth Cronk, over 53 years ago, and by industry and frugality hewed out for himself a comfortable home and accumulated considerable property, the most of which he had already given to his family, retaining only sufficient to keep him comfortable in his old age. He was one of a large family of eleven children, five of whom were older and five younger than himself. He outlived them all, though most of them were given a long life. His grandfather was in his 87th years, grandmother 93, his father 82, mother nearly 102 years. Four of his brothers passed three score and fifteen years, one nearly four score. He possessed a splendid constitution, was never sick, and in regard to build and physique was a perfect type of man, and might have lived many years had it not been for his ambition and desire to perform work beyond his strength, which brought a cold with congestion and inflammation which ended fatally. He had only three children, the late Mortimer C. Bogart, Mrs. J.B. McMullen and Marshall Bogart. His widow survives him. He was a consistent member of the Methodist church for over half a century, and class leader in the church he helped to build, and took such an interest in for over twenty-five years. He was a conservative in politics, being a playmate and friend of Sir John A Macdonald. He always supported his party, and always persistently declined being mixed up in municipal politics or being honored with municipal office. He was universally esteemed, and was widely known outside of his own county. His life was one of peace and good will toward man, and his death just what he long prayed for, that he might not suffer long. His funeral was largely attended on Thursday by sorrowing relatives and sympathetic friends, the funeral sermon being preached by Rev. F.E. Howard, and the remains conveyed to the VandeBogart vault.

MRS. BOGART - Our readers will join with us in regretting the death of the venerable Mrs. Bogart, of Adolphustown.  Up to the time of her death Mrs. Bogart, though of the great age of 101 years and 5 months, retained the use of all her senses, and finally passed away very suddenly.  She leaves a numerous circle of relatives, about 150 we understand, to mourn her decease, including children, grand-children and great-grand-children.  She was one of the first settlers, having located in Adolphustown in the year 1780, and ever since made that her home.  She was born in New Jersey, near New York, while it was yet a British Province.  For the last two years her friends and relations have celebrated her birthday by giving a grand pic-nic.  At the last celebration about one thousand people were present, some coming from Chicago, Ill., and other distant places.  -Intelligencer, Jan. 31

 

Death of a Centenarian - We have just learned with regret that Mrs. Bogart, of Adolphustown died on Friday morning at the residence of her son, Lewis Bogart, Esq., aged 101 years and 6 months. The extreme age and the large family connections of Mrs. Bogart have made her name, for years past, well known far beyond the limits of this county. We believe there are now about 150 of her posterity living. Until the last few days her health remained quite good, though, since she passed her one hundredth birth-day, the weight of her many years bore heavily upon her, and her strength and vigour rapidly declined. G. Bogart, Esq., Postmaster of this town and the Rev. G.M. Meacham, Wesleyan Minister, are grand-children of hers. The funeral will take place at the Wesleyan Church, Casey's Point, on Sunday next at 11 a.m. - Napanee Beaver.

DEATH OF AN OLD RESIDENT - On Monday morning last Mrs. Phoebe Bogart, relict of the late John Bogart, of Adolphustown, died at the residence of her son, Peter Bogart, Esq., Bridge street, Napanee. She was ailing but a very short time, merely complaining with a cold and was not considered at all dangerous until Sunday, so that the news of her death came as an unpleasant surprise to both friends and relatives. Deceased was a daughter of the late Archibald Campbell, Esq., one of the pioneers of Adolphustown. She was born in the township and has always resided there; was married to her late husband in the year 1826. She was the mother of eight children, all of whom survive her; three of her sons live in Napanee - Gilbert Bogart Esq., postmaster; Peter Bogart, Esq., and Mr. James Bogart, of the registry office. She was aged 78 years and 11 months at the time of her death, having survived her husband 11 years. Deceased has long been a faithful and consistent member of the Methodist Church of Canada and was highly respected for her piety and many Christian virtues. She was widely known, especially in the township of Adolphustown, and it is safe to say that none was more generally esteemed. For the last few years she has lived at the homestead, at what is known as Bogart's wharf, during the summer months, and during the winter with her children in Napanee. Her remains were interred in the family plot at the homestead, and the funeral was attended by a large number of relatives and sympathising friends, who drove a long distance through the piercing cold to pay the last sad homage of respect to the deceased.

A Hero's Departure

The Late Philip D. Booth - A Man of Great Enterprise - His Political Career

The Napanee Beaver says the many friends of Philip D. Booth, of Odessa will regret to learn of his death, which occurred on October 25th. Deceased was born at Mill Haven in 1814, where he spent his boyhood days. He took up his abode in Odessa when it was merely a settlement. He did a flourishing business in his grist and saw mills up to within a few years ago. He was a member of the Township Council for nearly 25 years, and most of these years a member of the County Council, and served his term as Warden. The burial service was held in Christ's Church, and after an eloquent address by Rev. Dr. Wilson, of Kingston, the remains were followed to Cataraqui by his family and friends and deposited in the vault. The grandfather of deceased, Colonel Booth, came from England before the war of 1812, in which both his grandfather as Colonel and father as Captain took an active part. When the former came to this country he brought with him his family servants and negro slaves, but imbued with the true spirit of British freedom his bondsmen were all made freedmen. Col. Booth was also one of the 16 members comprising the first Parliament of Upper Canada, which sat at Niagara under Governor Simcoe, and was re-elected by acclamation.

Esteemed Lady Dies at Northbrook -

A large assemblage gathered Friday, July 10th, to pay their last respects to one of Northbrook’s citizens, in the person of Mrs. William Both, sr., who passed away in Kingston General Hospital after a short illness.  At 2:30 p.m., service was conducted by Rev. Mr. Gall at the home.  The cortege then proceeded to the cemetery close by the United Church, of which she has ever been a devoted member.

The late Mrs. Both’s maiden name was Miss Emma Alice Preslar, daughter of the late James and Almira Preslar.  She was born in Camden Township, sixty-nine years ago.  Before her marriage Mrs. Both taught in the then log schools and was a pioneer in school and church work.  She was a very active member of the Woman’s Association and her home was ever open for any good cause.  Her sterling qualities were appreciated in the home, general store and post office, which she and her husband have kept for 49 years.

Besides the bereaved husband, two sisters Mrs. Hamm and Mrs. Robinson at Northbrook, and one brother, Marshal Preslar of Morven, are left to mourn.  Her passing has left a vacancy hard to fill.

A SUDDEN BLOW – The Death After a Few Hours Illness of Miss Annie Botterell – Miss Annie Botterell daughter of Mr. Edward Botterell, of the distribution staff, House of Commons, died suddenly this morning after a few hours illness at her father’s residence on Gloucester Street.  Miss Botterell was in her usual good health on Saturday and was noticed on the street on Saturday afternoon looking the picture of health.  On Sunday morning she was suddenly taken very ill with inflammation of the bowels.  Medical aid was immediately summoned, but the young lady became worse and suffered terrible agony during last evening.  About seven o’clock this morning the sorrowing family were called on to take leave of the dear one, who but a few short hours before was as happy and vigorous as any of them.  She lingered for a few minutes very near death but perfectly conscious, and recognizing the members of the family.  A few minutes after seven o’clock she passed peacefully away.  She was about twenty years of age and had, by her happy and pleasing manner won for herself a host of friends who will hear with the deepest sorrow of the sad and sudden blow which has robbed them of one who has won a place in their affections.  The bereaved family have the sympathy of a large circle of friends. The funeral will take place on Wednesday at the residence of Mr. Botterell.

THE LATE H.A. BOTTERELL - By the death of H. A. Botterell, on Saturday evening, at the early age of 38 years, after three weeks' illness, caused by the prevalent la grippe and pneumonia, Ottawa has lost one of its prominent young citizens. Quiet, unassuming and gentle in disposition, to know Harry Botterell was to love and esteem him. Active in all good works he will be much missed in Emmanuel Reformed Episcopal church, of which he was treasurer and superintendent of the Sunday school, while the Young Man's Christian Association has lost a director who did much to promote its welfare. He belonged to the Independent Order of Foresters and was one of the organizers of Court Laurentian, of which he was a zealous member. In the civil service he was deservedly esteemed, occupying the position of assistant to his respected father, Mr. Edward Botterell, distributor of parliamentary papers, House of Commons. A wife and five little children are left to mourn the loss of a most affectionate husband and father. A host of friends extend to them, his father and other relatives, warm sympathy in their sore bereavement.

In Memoriam - There died  on the 11th inst., at her home near Bloomfield, Ida Eleanor Bedell, wife of Dr. A. C. Bowerman.  The funeral occurred at 2 o’clock on Friday, and was attended by a large concourse of sorrowing friends.  It was but a little over two weeks ago that Mrs. Bowerman was surrounded by loving relatives, and enjoyed a large circle of intimate friends with whom she was a favorite;  today she and her little son are sleeping in “Glenwood”.  The sympathy of this community is extended to the bereaved relatives in their affliction.  When in health, Mrs. Bowerman never entertained flattering ideas of life, nor gilded it with false colors;  she never believed that her life would be greatly prolonged, but she was not at all discouraged by the fact, and when the messenger came she was ready;  when told that the end was near, she received the information with composure, and, with a countenance glowing with heavenly inspiration, said; “Weep not for me, but for yourselves.”  When life’s taper had nearly ceased to burn, her mind continued clear, and when speech had left, her face was brightened with a smile so sweet and heavenly - so indicative of perfect happiness, as to ever be to those who witnessed it a source of comforting reflection.  - Though consigned to the tomb, she continues to live in the affection and memory of many who had been favored with her acquaintance;   in spirit she is with us, and shall be till from the page of life our names are gone.   “What is life?  ‘Tis a delicate shell.  thrown up from eternity’s flow.  On time’s bank of quicksand to dwell, and a moment its loveliness show.  Gone back to the element grand  Is the billow that brought it on shore;  See!  A mother is washing the sand, And the beautiful shell is no more.”

Sillsville Resident, Hugh Box, Killed on C.N.R. Crossing - Car Struck by Fast East Bound Express Saturday Afternoon - Hugh Box, one of the best known residents of the south part of the county of Lennox and Addington, was killed instantly shortly after two o'clock, daylight saving time, last Saturday afternoon, when his car was struck by a fast east-bound C.N.R. express at Hart's Crossing, about three miles east of Napanee. Mr. Box was a well-known farmer of the Sillsville district and for the past nine years had been agent for the Massey-Harris Implement Company. In his latter capacity he had many contacts with people throughout the county. On Saturday, Mr. Box had been in Napanee during the morning and when on his way home shortly after lunch, turned north from the Hamburg Road at what is known as the cheese factory corner to make a business call at the home of Mr. Frank Hart. After going through a subway under the C.N.R. track, the road turns and, in order to reach the Hart farm, vehicles ascend a rather steep approach to a level crossing. It was on this crossing that Mr. Box's car was struck by the second section of the fast express. So far as can be learned there were no eye-witnesses of the accident with the possible exception of the trainmen. Iris Hart, 14-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hart, was standing at the window of the Hart home when she heard the express make an unusual noise as it came to a sudden stop. When she looked up, she saw a car being thrown into a deep ditch. She and her grandmother ran out and found Mr. Box's body lying in the ditch. A neighbour, Mrs. Jack Lawlor, who is a nurse, was summoned, but Mr. Box was dead. His car, which was carried some distance by the train, was a total wreck. The late Mr. Box was born in South Fredericksburgh on the farm where he had been living for the past thirty years or more. He was a son of the late Philip Box and Edith Clapp, members of old families of the district. His parents died when he was a young boy and part of his early life was spent in Kingston, where he attended school and graduated from a business college. After his marriage to Jane Roberts, daughter of the late Canon William Roberts, for some time rector of the Anglican Parish of Adolphustown, Mr. Box took up farming and continued to live on the family homestead, until his death. For many years he was president of the UEL Cheese Factory, and recently was one of the canvassers in connection with the Red Cross Campaign and the Victory Loan Campaign. He was a member of St. Alban's Anglican Church, Adolphustown, where his funeral was held on Tuesday afternoon, with Rev. C.C. Brazill, the rector, in charge. Interment followed in Riverside Cemetery. Mr. Box is survived by his wife, one daughter, Edith, Mrs. (Capt.) Leavens, Kingston, and one son, William, at home.

MRS. BRADLEY’S DEATH – Deceased Lady Had Large Number of Friends in Toronto – Special Despatch to The Globe – Belleville, Aug. 6 -  Mrs. Bradley, wife of Dr. O.W. Bradley of Montreal, who was killed by a passenger train in Montreal on Saturday, was the only child of the late Alex. Robertson, M.P. for West Hastings.  She was married here to Dr. Bradley on April 26 last.  Mrs. Stewart, who was injured, was an aunt of the deceased.  Mrs. Bradley was a most popular lady here, and her tragic death came as a terrible shock to her hundreds of friends here. Mrs. Stewart was a sister of Mr. J. Grace, Secretary of the Toronto Railway Company.

 

KILLED AT DORVAL – A very sad accident occurred at Dorval  Station on Saturday evening by which the young wife of Dr. O. W. Bradley, Montreal, was instantly  killed and her aunt, Mrs. George Stewart, of Belleville, was severely injured. It is not known as yet exactly how the accident occurred.  Mrs. Stewart, however, attributes it to the air suction of the rapidly moving train which passed.  She states that she and her niece were standing on the narrow platform between the two tracks at Dorval, waiting for the motor car to take Mrs. Bradley back to Montreal.  While watching the motor car they did not observe the Imperial Limited, which came along very fast, and by the disturbance of air swirled them against it.  Mrs. Bradley was struck on the temple by some projection, which smashed her skull in on her brain, causing instant death.  Mrs. Stewart was more fortunate, and was struck on the arm with such force as to throw her away from the rushing train.  Her arm was badly fractured and lacerated, and she suffered a severe shaking up.  It was not thought, however, that she will lose the arm or suffer any permanent ill effects from the accident.  Mrs. Bradley was Miss Ethel Robertson, of Belleville, and niece of the late John Bell, K.C.   Both Mrs. Bradley and Mrs. Stewart are well known in Napanee, having visited Mr. and Mrs. W. G. Wilson, frequently here.

Terrible Accident - On Saturday afternoon last our citizens were shocked when the news was spread broadcast that a man had been almost instantly killed at the railroad bridge in the east end of the town. Investigation revealed the fact that the report was only too true, the unfortunate gentleman being Mr. Alexander Breckenridge, a well known and highly respected resident of North Fredericksburgh. While driving down Dundas street, on his return home, deceased lost control of the team he was driving and they started to run away. The stone piers supporting the G.T.R. bridge lay directly in their path, and one of the infuriated animals hit the abutment. The tongue of the sleigh also struck, and precipitated Mr. Breckenridge head first into the pier. His head and face were severely smashed and cut, the unfortunate man only living about two hours after the accident. Deceased was about 55 years of age and unmarried. Besides his father, who is 95 years of age and very poorly, two brothers, David and James, and one sister, Annie, at home, and John, in the Yukon, are left to mourn the loss. The funeral took place on Monday last, and was largely attended. Rev. J. R. Conn conducting the services.

THE LATE ALEXANDER BRECKENRIDGE -  A sad gloom was cast over this community on Easter Sunday morning when it became known that the venerable old gentleman, Mr. Alexander Breckenridge, of Little Creek, had passed away.  Although his death was not unexpected for some time past, he held all his faculties till near the last.  He was born at Maybole, Ayrshire, Scotland, on March 10th, 1810, and accordingly had passed the century mark.  He indeed had a wonderful intellect and memory for a man of his age, and his many friends more that enjoyed many hours listening to his tales concerning the Highlands of his dear old Scotland.  With his wife, Miss Robona McGill, who preceded him to the grave some twenty seven years ago, and three of his family, he set sail for Canada in 1854, and after a very rough three months voyage he landed in  Kingston, and took up farming near Colinsbay, and thence to Amherst Island when it was yet but a forest.  He resided at Little Creek on the farm upon which he died for the past thirty five years, most of which he was very active, and was widely known in the district.  Some five years ago he received his second sight, and it was wonderful to hear him read without any aid from glasses.  Although he never took any active part in politics he was always relied upon as a staunch supporter of the Liberal party.  He was a member of the Presbyterian Church, and the Rev. Mr. Conn conducted the funeral services at his home on Tuesday, March 20th.  His family consisted of Alexander Jr. and David who died some few years ago, John of British Columbia, and James and Annie, on the old homestead.  His pallbearers were Messrs. J. F. Smith, Alf. Kent, Jas. Dillenbeck, G. M. Card, A. Herrington and A. Bowen.  The funeral was largely attended and his remains were placed in the Western cemetery vault to await interment in the family plot.

DIED - At Adolphustown, on Thursday last, the 14th inst., Mr. BARNABAS BRENNAN, for many years a resident of Kingston, merchant, aged 44 years.

Mr. B. was a native of Ireland, but came to this Province in 1816, where he has resided ever since.  Having been an acceptable member of the Methodist church before he came to the place, he soon attached himself to the Society in Kingston, in which he has sustained, with distinguished zeal and ability, several responsible situations, but for the greatest portion of time that of Recording Steward, in the faithful discharge of the duties of which he did honor to his head and his heart.  He was also superintendent of a large Sabbath School for several years, for the spiritual prosperity of which his ardor and zeal were untiring;  and in all the relations in which he stood to the church, he endeared himself to his brethren by the strict integrity and singleness of heart with which he was ever guided.  - In June last, he came to the resolution of retiring from the town, and settling himself in the country, for which purpose he purchased a pleasantly situated farm on Hay Bay in Adolphustown;  but previous to his removal there, was suddenly attacked by a paralytic affection, from which he never recovered, but which continued, from time to time, with increased violence, rendering him incapable of attending, with few exceptions, to his temporal concerns.  But the immortal, deathless spirit, was still ripening fro eternal joys, and it may be truly said of our deceased brother, the he did “in patience possess his soul,” for not a murmur, or single word of repining was known to escape his lips, from the time of his first severe attack till he resigned his soul, in the triumphs of faith, into the hands of his Redeemer. - Much might be said, for the encouragement of Christians, respecting the deceased, but which would occupy too great a space of your interesting paper  suffice it, therefore, to say, that he lived a consistent Christian, and has left a wife, several children, and a numerous circle of  friends to mourn, but not without hope, their exceeding great loss;  but which, it is confidently believed, will prove his infinite and eternal gain.  His funeral took place on Sunday last, at the residence of his father-in-law, Mr. Nicholas Peterson, Sen., on Hay Bay, which was numerously attended; and the universal sympathy of feeling manifested on the occasion, showed the high esteem in which he was held by those who had the pleasure of his acquaintance.  - “Let me die the death of the righteous, let my last end be like his.” 

The Christian Guardian will confer a favor by inserting the above.

The late Abner Brown - Abner Brown, an old and well known resident of North Fredericksburgh, passed peacefully away at the residence of his daughter, Miss Ida Brown, Dundas street, on Thursday morning, Sept. 28th, after a serious illness of several months duration, from cancer of the stomach. Mr. Brown was born at Plum Hollow, Leeds county, on March 7th, 1826, and was, therefore, at the time of his death, in his seventy-third year. In March 1853, he was married to Loreta Wiltse, who preceded him to the grave twenty-eight years ago. He spent his early years on a farm in Leeds county and moved to Lennox county in 1871. Here he resided until the time of his death.

Mr. Brown was a good business man, an enterprising farmer, a very extensive reader and a man of much intelligence. He was amongst the prosperous and well to do agriculturists of this county. In politics he was a strong liberal and was long a consistent member of the Methodist church, being converted at the early age of fourteen. He was a life long temperance man and took deep interest in the plobiscite vote. Though realizing that his end was near, he expressed strong hope that his strength would hold out to enable him to go and cast his vote. He died, however, a few hours before the poll opened.

Deceased leaves a family of five children, three daughters and two sons - all well known residents of this county. The daughters are Ida and Ada, unmarried; Loreta (Mrs. William D. VanAlstine) who lives in town. The sons are Almon and Alvin, both farmers of North Fredericksburgh, the former on the homestead.

On Monday evening, November 21, 1932, death claimed as its victim, a dearly loved son and brother, in the person of David Aylsworth Brown, a well known and highly respected resident of North Fredericksburgh, in his 62nd  year. Although never very robust from infancy, his parents were always considerate and with a great deal of kindness and care, his health improved. During the last few years, he had enjoyed fairly good health with the exception of occasional heart attacks. It was one of these attacks which resulted in his sudden passing. Since the death of his father, the late Charles Jacob Brown, on September 6th  1916, he and his widowed mother lived a good deal of the time alone on the old Brown homestead, near Fredericksburgh station, and his sudden passing was a terrible shock to his aged mother. He was a true lover of nature and was especially interested in poultry, gardening and flowers, and made a success of these hobbies. He was of a kind, gentle and thoughtful nature, always earnest and true and ready to give assistance, always being more ready to give than to receive; a truly devoted son. His funeral was held at the home Thursday November 24th  and was conducted by his pastor, the Rev. R. W. Street, Morven United Church. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Fralick sang a beautiful duet, "Sometime We Will Understand". The body was laid to rest in the family plot at Morven. Besides his aged and heart-broken mother, who passed away shortly after his death, he left to mourn his loss four sisters, Mrs. B.S. VanAystyne; Mrs. S. A. Amey; Mrs. J.C. Parrott and Mrs. J. S. Amey. The homestead was handed down from his grandfather, Sergt. David Bucklin Brown. In its early days it was renowned for its woollen and saw mills. His son, Charles, learned the carriage making and opened up a shop at Centreville, but after the death of his father, returned to the home and became one of the most prosperous farmers of his time. He married Theresa Clancy, daughter of William Clancy of Newburgh. Both Charles and his son David were born and died on the homestead. His ancestors came to America on the Mayflower and settled near Bath. Two brothers, Sergt. David Bucklin Brown, who married the daughter of Col. Isaac Fraser and afterwards acquired the property at Fredericksburgh, and James Brown, who settled in the Limestone City. Three other brothers settled in the States. General Jacob Brown, was commander-in-chief of the American Army during the early Mexican War, losing his life at Brownsville, Texas. Fort Brown was named in his honor across the Rio Grande from Mexico. Another brother an English Church clergyman settled in Rhode Island, a descendant of whom John Nicholas Brown founded Brown University. The other brother, Lieut. Brown settled in Massachussetts. Of the two families who settled in Canada, Dr. M. J. Brown, Kingston and Charles Jacob Brown, of Fredericksburgh, were spared to within a few months of each other.

OBITUARY - Samuel S. Brown

On December 30th, 1927, after a protracted illness of several months, Mr. Samuel S. Brown passed away, at the age of 49 years.

The deceased had been a resident of this district all his life, and his quiet, pleasant, lovable disposition, had won for him a host of friends.  His untimely death is much to be regretted, for it has taken him from his loving wife and baby son, and the whole community suffers the loss of a most loyal, worthy and respected citizen.

Besides his wife and baby son, he leaves to mourn his loss, four brothers, Wm., of Lime Lake;  George, Thomas and James, of Ebenezer, and two sisters, Mrs. Wm. Metcalfe, of the West, and Mrs. Wm. English, of Shannonville.

The funeral service which was largely attended, was held in Ebenezer Church, Rev. M. Sharpe, a former pastor, officiating.  The bearers were W. Whiteman, G. Provins, J. Doyle, C. Anderson, C. Mastin and H. Mastin.  Rev. Mr. Sharpe took for his text, “Behold I show you a mystery”.  God’s ways are not our ways and He will provide a way.  We know the departed never lost his trust in God, through all his illness, for he left a message to his sorrowing wife, “Trust in God and follow on.”

Ebenezer Church has indeed lost a very useful member, for he loved the Church he had been brought up in and never hesitated to respond to any call made on him.  In the choir his assistance was freely given.  For a number of years he was superintendent of the Sunday School, and also taught a class of young boys.  He loved the young people and never forgot to give an encouraging word.  He was a faithful member of the Orange Lodge, being Master of the Ebenezer Lodge, 974, and Chaplain of the black Order.

To the sorrowing friends, the whole community extends their deepest sympathy and remembering the beautiful words of the anthem rendered by the choir, “Meekly Wait and Murmur Not.”

Stanley

 

The funeral of the late Stanley Brown took place on Wednesday last from his residence on the 2d con., South Fredericksburgh. Rev. W.J. Saunders, D.C.L., conducted the services which were held mainly in the U.E.L. Centennial Methodist church, Adolphustown. Dr. Sanders preached from Ps. xc, 12, a sermon that held the attention of the large audience assembled. It was a practical application of the text showing the necessity of living so as to be prepared for eternity. Very feeling reference was made by the preacher  to the efforts of the son of deceased, Mr. Fred Brown, to do all possible for his sick father, while assuming the burden which the care of a large farm imposed on one who is scarcely out of boyhood. We hope much good may be done by the Doctor's earnest words and excellent advice so kindly given. The late S. Brown was buried beside his wife, in the Adolphustown cemetery attached to above church. He is survived by two daughters, who reside in Manitoba, and two sons.

(nee Clancy)

 

Theressa Clancy Brown, widow of the late Charles J. Brown, who died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. D. Parrott, Odessa, on February 13th , 1933, after an illness of about three weeks, was one of Morven's oldest and most respected residents. Mrs. Brown was a daughter of the late William Clancy of Newburgh. She had the rare distinction of being one of triplets, one of whom, Jacob Pool, died in 1898, and another, William Harve, died in infancy. Deceased who was in her 91st  year, was a member of Morven United Church. All her life, she had been associated with the Methodist and later with the United Church. In August 1868, she married Charles Jacob Brown and for 64 years she resided on the Brown homestead. Mr. Brown predeceased her in 1916. She was a great lover of flowers and music, and as a girl attended singing school and sang in the choir. Even when very ill, she asked for her favorite songs and joined in the singing. Her prime interest was in homemaking, and in every sense was a helpmate, a loyal mother, and wife. Her husband set a high value on her judgement, and it was this harmony that brought them success and happiness. She was perpetually young and delighted in sharing her pleasures and having her friends in her home. She was a good friend, a notable mother and was loved for her cheerful spirit and happy outlook on life. Her flowers were a source of delight to her in her declining years, she loved them all; her tall palm she had watched grow from a seedling, and so many choice plants inside and outside the home. The sudden death of her son was a great shock but she did her best to bear up under the strain. Last Christmas was spent in the old home with her family, after which she went to spend the winter with her daughter. On January 22nd, she celebrated her 90th birthday. Many friends called to extend congratulations and gifts and greetings were received from far and near. A few days after her birthday she was taken ill and despite all loving hands could do, she gradually slipped away at her master's call. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. Dr. Fletcher of Odessa, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J.C. Parrott and interment was made at the family plot in Morven. At the service, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Fralick friends of the family, sang a beautiful duet. Surviving are four daughters - Mrs. B. S Vanalstyne, Mrs. S. A. Amey, Mrs. J.C. Parrott and Mrs. J. S. Amey, three sisters, Mrs. A.M. Asselstine, Winnipeg, Mrs. R Richards, Toronto, Mrs. R. Phillips, Tacoma Wash, and one brother, Solomon Clancy at Newburgh.

MRS. JAMES BUCHANAN -  Daughter of Mr. G. C. Campbell, of Forester’s Falls, was suddenly removed from earth to heaven on the 18th of March, 1886.  She was born at Forester’s Falls on the 11th of October, 1856. She gave her heart to her Saviour when only a child, and through her life, which was short, “lived her God to love, her God to glorify.”  On the 19th of March, 1879, she was united in marriage to Mr. James Buchanan, of Beachburg, who now deeply mourns his loss, and whom we hope will one day meet her in that glorious world above where husbands and wives and loved ones, who have died in the Lord, meet to part no more.  How often death takes those who seem to be the most valuable in the home circle, in the Church and in society;  it seems so in this case.  She was one of those devoted wives and mothers who make home bright, happy and blessed.  Nearly two years ago she was seized with bronchitis, which finally turned to consumption, and though everything which medical skill and a self sacrificing, devoted, loving husband and kind sister could do was done, yet she passed away from earth and left grief stricken ones behind.  but, though dead, her influence for good while living still remains.  Her sick-room was not saddened with doubts and fears, but was brightened with the assurance of the presence and blessing of Jesus.  She could say, “The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth me from all sin.”  She was anxious to live with her husband and little boy, whom she loved so dearly;  yet she could say, “Thy will be done.”  She had no fear of death.  She said that very often she thought that she was as happy as she could live, and it seemed to her at times as if she could see her Saviour in her room.  [signed] Wm.

Aged Teacher Passes at Age of 91.

Frederick Burrows Served under Ryerson Regime.

One of the appointees as Public School Inspector by the late Dr. Egerton Ryerson, Frederick Burrows, 78 Chelsea Avenue, Toronto, died on Saturday at 91.  He and his wife lived in wedded bliss for over 68 years.   Mr. Burrows was born in Toronto, and for ten years was a teacher at the Bath Academy in the Bay of Quinte district.  At the age of 30, he was made Public School Inspector for Lennox and Addington County and was the youngest of seventy-one inspectors to be appointed in Ontario by the late Dr. Ryerson.   Thirty six years after his promotion as Inspector in 1871, Mr. Burrows retired, and since that time he and his wife had been living quietly in their native city.  He married in 1863.  He was 21 and his wife 18.  Mr. Burrows took a great interest in his former pupils, and his only regret was that most of them were scattered all over the globe.  On the occasion of his last birthday, several of his old pupils called on him to offer their congratulations.  Poetry attracted the aged educationist and one of his poems were published in 1928 in the March issue of the Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society.  His talent in verse was developed during three sad years of his life when he lost his sight, and could no longer read.  An operation brought back his sight, and he returned to his beloved books with even greater interest than before. 

Surviving are his widow and four children.  Alfred is the head of the Geological Department of the Provincial Bureau of Mines.  George is a medical practioner in Marlbank, Ontario;  Arthur is in Vancouver and their only surviving daughter, Mrs. W. Sexsmith is also in Vancouver.  The late Herbert Burrows, a former news editor of the world who died in 1904, was a son.  Twelve grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren also survive.  - -  Toronto Telegram

The remains were brought to Napanee on Tuesday and interment took place in Riverview Cemetery.

 

OBITUARY - THE LATE FREDERICK BURROWS -

The late Frederick Burrows was born in Toronto, in 1842, of Irish and Scotch decent, was educated in public and grammar schools, and the Provincial Normal School at Toronto.  He taught school first at the age of 16 years, and between teaching engagements, furthered his education.  He taught school in several places near Toronto and Kingston.  He was head-master of the historic Bath Academy, and while teaching there received an appointment as Public School Inspector for the counties of Lennox and Addington in the Dr. Ryerson regime.  He was the youngest of the inspectors appointed at that time.  He served as Inspector for many years, with distinction, Napanee being his headquarters.  During this time he was ever trying to raise the status of the county schools, and had a keen sympathy for the young teachers of that day and gave many a helping hand in conducting their classes.

During early years, travelling in the far north was difficult and hazardous, and accommodation was poor.  Often the north section had to be visited on horseback and roads were impassable.  Frequently accommodation was obtained at lumber camps and many stories were told of the rough but kindly shantymen.

During his inspectorate he had many special appointments from the Department of Education, including, examiner at the Deaf and Dumb Institute, Belleville, and at normal schools.

All through his life he was a great student, surrounded by books.  After retiring in 1907, after 49 years in educational life, he kept up his studies.  He was fondest of literature and poetry and many excellent poems have been written by him..  Just before his death, he had prepared a private edition of poems, as gifts for his many friends.

He married Miss Lucinda Barrett, of Wolfe island.

He is survived by many descendants, including a widow, three sons, Dr. George Burrows, Marlbank, ont., Wilson Burrows, Cloverdale, B.C., and Dr. Alfred burrows, Toronto’  and one daughter, Mattie, (Mrs. C.G. Sexsmith), Vancouver, B.C.

OBITUARY – HERBERT BURROWS – Eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred. Burrows, died at Kingston on Monday last, 25th April, aged 39 years and 10 months.  Deceased was cut off in the midst of a prosperous and useful life, and his bereaved widow and sorrowing parents and brothers and sister have the heartfelt sympathy of the whole community.  For two years, previous to his sickness, deceased held the important position of private secretary to the Hon. J. R. Stratton.  Previous to that he had held responsible positions as a Hansard reporter, and on the staff of the Toronto Globe Mail and World, and was for some years managing editor of the latter. Under his management the World was never more popular and prosperous.  His illness, mental collapse, came on very suddenly, and although everything was done that medical science could prescribe, he continued to fail until the end came on Monday.  Deceased was an unusually clever boy, and in later years developed a great ability in the profession he adopted.  Whatever he took in hand was carried out with all the energy and ability Providence had so abundantly endowed him, and his death cuts short what promised to be a most useful and successful career.  Deceased was married about nineteen years ago to Miss Maggie McKay, daughter of the late Donald McKay, Owen Sound, but formerly of Napanee, who survives.  Four brothers, Dr. G. Burrows, Marlbank;  Arthur, in the west;  Alfred, Belleville;  Frank, New York, and one sister, Mrs. C. G. Sexsmith, of New Westminster, besides his sorrowing parents, mourn the death of a loving son and brother.  The funeral took place on Wednesday from his father’s residence, Robert Street, to the Western vault.  The casket was covered by beautiful wreaths and flowers from Toronto, Hamilton and other places, including one from Hon. J. R. Stratton, Provincial Secretary.  On Wednesday Mrs. Burrows received the following dispatch from Ottawa:

SIDNEY JOHN BUSBY

The angel of death came into our neighborhood Friday evening March 11th, and took from our midst a loving husband, son, brother, and neighbor, in the person of Sidney Busby.  He had been enjoying good health until one week previous to his passing, when he was taken ill, and although everything was done that loving hands could do and medical assistance provide, he passed into the Great Beyond, a ransomed soul.  Happy to meet and be with his Saviour. His passing came as a great shock to everyone.  Sid, as we all knew him, had lived all his brief life in our midst, being born on November 14th, 1894.  He lived with his parents on the old homestead, situated a short distance from the place where he resided at the time of his passing , and although his brief span of life seemed all too short, he had endeared himself to each and everyone by his fine Christian qualities, manly principles,, loving and unselfish disposition.

On March 19th, 1919, he married Bessie Baird, of Anderson, who is left to mourn a loving husband.  His parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Busby, of Napanee, one sister, Mrs. Edward Sexsmith, and a niece, Hazel Sexsmith, of Wesley are left to mourn a dutiful son, brother and uncle as well as the surrounding community, where he will be missed by all.  He was a general favorite where ever he chanced to be, having for the past few years filled the office of secretary for School Section No. 8, a position he filled admirably, and with general satisfaction to all.  He was also employed and satisfactorily served the township of Richmond in road construction work and later did much valuable work along the same line for the county of Lennox.

The funeral assembled at his residence, near Forest Mills, and proceeded to Selby United Church, where they were joined by a large number of friends who had gathered to pay their final tribute.  The service was conducted by his pastor, Rev. A. C. Oliver, assisted by Rev. Foley, of Selby, who gave a very comforting and soul inspiring discourse.  The text was taken from Samuel I, 20th Chapter, 3rd verse  “There is but a step between Me and Death”  together with the reading of the 90th Psalm and a well chosen selection by the Forest Mills Choir, and the well known number “My Saviour First of All”, ably rendered by W. Davis, concluded the service that seemed to blend the sympathies of man with the divine compassion.  From there the cortege proceeded to Riverview vault, Napanee, where interment will take place later.  The pall-bearers were Frank, Fred and Charley McFarlane, Harry Pringle, Alex. Collins and Ernest Kerr.

The many floral tributes were carried by David Garrick, Ambrose Switzer, Percy Pringle and Wilbert Bush.

“Asleep in Jesus, Blessed sheep

From which none ever wake to weep.”

 

Death of Sidney Busby

The death of Sidney Busby which took place at his home at Forest Mills on Friday evening came as a shock to his relatives and many friends throughout this district.  A man only thirty-eight years of age and one of the best known of the younger farmers in Richmond Township, his illness had been of a few days duration.  A little over a week ago, he was taken ill with jaundice and since that time other complications had set in, and for two days preceding his death his condition had been very low.  A son of Mr. and Mrs. William Busby, he was born in the Township of Richmond, and followed in the footsteps of his father, that of farming, and after his parents had moved to Napanee some few years ago, he assumed charge of the old homestead.

He was a frequent visitor to Napanee, was exceptionally well-known and had a wide circle of friends, by whom he was held in the highest of esteem.

Several years ago he was united in marriage to Bessie Baird, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Edward Baird of Anderson.  About five years ago, Mrs. Baird was very ill for a considerable time and was in the Kingston General Hospital for several weeks.  He was a member of the United Church, and the high regard in which he was held was evidenced on Sunday afternoon when the United Church at Selby was filled with relatives and friends for the funeral service.  After the service the funeral cortege proceeded to Napanee where interment took place.  Besides his aged parents, who reside on the Belleville Road, he leaves his widow, also one sister, Mrs. Sexsmith of Wesley.  Mrs. George Chalk, Bridge street is a sister of Mrs. Baird.  A considerable number from Napanee attended the funeral service.

LIEUT. WALTER C. BUSH.

Died of Wounds in France, April 29, 1917.

Lieut. Walter bush was born near Wilton, in the township of Ernesttown, on March 25th, 1892. From early boyhood he showed great inclination for soldiering which increased as he grew older, until, as soon as old enough, he joined the 47th Frontenac Regiment.  In the year 1911 he passed through the Royal School of Infantry, obtaining his Lieutenancy, and returning the following year, 1912, was again successful and was gazetted to the rank of Captain.

He was always kindly disposed, thoroughly dependable and a fine manly character, respected and esteemed by all, being especially a favorite with the boys.  When it was decided to organize the boy Scouts at Camden East, he was the unanimous choice of the boys for the office of scoutmaster, and his work and influence among them will not be easily forgotten.  In September, 1916, he enlisted for overseas service in the 146th, being gazetted to the rank of Lieutenant, and on April 29th, 1917, died of wounds in France.  Many inquiries have been received as to the exact cause of his death.  The undernoted letters, received by his brother, Sydney, Bush, supply the answer:

It is with the greatest regret that I have to tell you of your brother’s death.  He was in his dugout with his Company Commander, Major Cooper (who was instantly killed), about 7 p.m.  This was located near some of our 4.5 howitzer batteries, and the Germans started shelling one of these positions, during which one of the shells fell short and hit the dugout.  Your brother was taken out unconscious and lived until the next day, but never recovered consciousness.

We buried him in the cemetery of Aubigney and his grave is marked with our Battalion Cross.  It was impossible for me to be present, owing to operations.

Your brother had been with us six months and was always a very gallant officer and soldier.  He was a fellow I could absolutely rely on, and his work on April 9th in taking of the Vimy Ridge was fine.  He was always willing and keen to go first.

We all feel his death deeply, and his loss is a great one to his Battalion.

His kit and personal effects have been forwarded to you.

Again, accept my sincere sympathy in your great loss of a chap who always played the game,

Yours very sincerely, J. B. ROGERS,

Commanding 3rd Canadian Battalion, Toronto Regiment.

My Dear Mr. Bush -

You will have heard some days ago the sad news of your brother’s death, and ever since I have been  trying to get a chance to write.  Perhaps you have heard from others how he was killed.  He was with his Company, holding a support position during one of the notable advances our men have made lately, when a shell hit the top of the dugout, breaking it down on them.  Your brother was injured in the head and did not become conscious at all, but lived until he reached the Casualty Clearing Station Aubigney, and died there.  There was, of course, absolutely no chance for him from the first, and Major Cooper, his company Commander, died instantly.  Your brother leaves such a good record in this Battalion for faithful work and cheerful devotion and comradeship that he will be greatly missed.  Yet one cannot grudge him the glory of having played his part in the recent great advances, nor the privilege of having given himself in sacrifice in helping to secure such triumphs for his Battalion and his Country,.  His own work as a Platoon Officer, both last month and all the time he has been here, helped greatly to accomplish the result.  I do not know what others he leaves at home.  I do know you must all remember him with loving pride and think to-day he rests in the peace of God’s Paradise.  His body was laid to rest near where he died by the Chaplain and Capt. Calham, and other of the officers were present, and a cross erected by his Battalion will mark his grave.,

Yours very sincerely,  M .L. ARCHER,

Chaplain, 1st Canadian Infantry.

Bussey,

Albert E.

 

Death of A.E. Bussey – the many friends of Albert E. Bussey were surprised and pained to hear of his sudden death, at his home in Westernville, on Monday evening, Sept. 6. He was taken sick at Rochester, where he was engaged in business with his brother, Geo. H. Bussey.  He hastened home to be cared for by the hands of loved ones; but their loving care could not save him.  God saw fit in His infinite wisdom to take him hence, and He doeth all things well.  A little more than five years have passed since he married Belle, the eldest daughter of Mr. Daniel G. Drummond, of Lee.  Their married life has been short, but a very happy one.  Of three children, two are left, and one has gone before to the fold of the Good Shepherd.  Mr. Bussey was a promising young man.  He had business abilities of a high order, was a very kind husband, and generous in all his feelings and actions.  His truthfulness and honor in all business matters was well understood and appreciated by all who came in contact with him..  The testimony of sympathy for his stricken household, and to the warm place he held in the hearts of those who knew him, was shown by the large and solemn concourse of weeping friends who attended the funeral service.  Several of his Rochester friends were present, bringing with them many beautiful flowers, in various and appropriate designs.  Many from Rome were present also, and joined with his neighbors and friends in the last sad rites – laying him  to rest in the cemetery familiar to him from his childhood.

Byers,

Rev. Henry

 

Sad Drowning of the Rev. Henry Byers. – Last evening about four o’clock the body of Rev. Hy. Byers, Kingston, was found floating in shallow water off the Barriefield shore near the other end of Cataraqui Bridge.  On the bank were his overcoat and hat and two bottles of medicine.  At first it was thought that it was a case of suicide, but now his friends are not of that opinion.  He was in the hospital for a few days not feeling well;  in fact he was sick for some time.  Yesterday morning about six o’clock he was seen crossing the bridge, and it is thought that shortly after that hour he met his death.  He was in the habit of bathing his head, and those who were best acquainted with him think that he went to the lake shore to bathe his head, and becoming suddenly ill fell forward and was drowned.  The body was in only two feet of water.  Of late he was very weak indeed.  Deceased was born in Ireland, which country he left in 1838.  In 1847 he came to Kingston and found employment as a painter for several years.  He then studied for the ministry, and was located in the Wilton circuit preaching in several places.  About thirty years ago he became a supernumerary, and then opened a boarding house at the head of Brock street, at which the students of Queen’s lodged.  Of late he boarded on Queen street in a house which he owned.  His property is said to be worth ten thousand dollars.  He leaves a widow, who is the sister of Mr. I. Simpson.
