Obituary - Mr. W.H. Cadman

It was with sincere regret that the many friends of Mr. W.H. Cadman learned that he had suddenly passed away on Sunday, April 15th, 1928, at his home, Napanee. Although in his eighty-first year, and confined to his bed many months, he was a patient sufferer, and a devoted member of Trinity United Church for eighteen years. His earlier years were spent in Adolphustown, where he was born.

The late Mr. Cadman was one of the few surviving veterans of the Fenian Raid of 1866 and until very recently retained a clear recollection of events surrounding the Raid. His wife predeceased him about two years ago. Surviving are four daughters, Mrs. (Capt.) Bloomfield, Kingston; Mrs. C.F. Allison, Adolphustown, Mrs. W.G. Fretts and Mrs. T.M. Asselstine, of Napanee, having resided with the latter the past six years. The funeral, which took place Tuesday afternoon, from his late residence to Riverview cemetery, was conducted by the Rev. Harry Pawson, of Trinity United Church.

Cameron,

Elizabeth

(nee Cook)

 

The Late Mrs. Cameron -  Elizabeth Cameron, one of the oldest and most highly respected residents of Camden, died December 22nd, at her home in Newburgh, in her ninetieth year.  The youngest daughter of the late Richard and Jane Cook of Camden, she was born October 17th 1849 and baptized on January 15th 1850, in the old church of St. Luke’s at Camden East by the Reverend Paul Shirley, Missionary of the United Churches of England and Ireland, in the Township of Sheffield - Camden, and first rector of St. Luke’s.

In 1871 she was married to Nathaniel Graham.  The four children from this marriage are Mrs. Robert Dowdle, Mrs. William Dowdle, Edward Graham and Archibald Graham, all of Camden.  Her second husband was Thomas Cameron, of Inverness Scotland, who predeceased her in 1906.  Their son, Herbert Cameron, lives in Windsor, where he is Classics Master in the Patterson Collegiate Institute.

Mrs. Cameron had a remarkable memory and was very conversant with the early history of Lennox and Addington.  Her mind continued to be keen and active till the very end of her life.  She was an indefatigable worker and took great pride in the management of her home which was always immaculate.  Conspicuous among her many virtues was the wonderful and ideal unselfishness which motivated her every action.  She thought always of others and never of herself.  A devoted mother, a kind and sympathetic neighbour, who could always be depended on in time of sickness or trouble and a devout Christian who read each day her Bible and the Book of Common Prayer.  She will be missed by a wide circle of friends, to whom she was an inspiration.

Her funeral took place on Saturday, December 24th.  Six grandsons acted as pall-bearers.  A short service was held at her late residence by the Rev. Canon R. W. Spencer.   By special request, Mr. and Mrs. Ward Wartman of Napanee, sang the beautiful hymn, “Does Jesus Care”.  The funeral cortege then proceeded to St. Luke’s Church at Camden East.  During the service, three favourite hymns of the deceased were sung.  “On the Resurrection Morning”, “Abide With Me” and “How Sweet the Hour of Closing Day.”  After a brief but impressive sermon on the hope and promise of the life immortal, interment was made in the cemetery of St. Luke’s where her parents, grandparents and so many of her friends rest.  “May light eternal shine upon her with Thy Saints, O Lord, forever.”

 

MRS. THOMAS CAMERON -

NEWBURGH -  Mrs. Thomas Cameron, one of the oldest residents of the village passed away on Thursday morning in her 90th year.  She had been ill for about one week.  She leaves to mourn her loss three sons, Edward and Archie Graham of Newburg, and J. H. Cameron, B.A., of Windsor, and two daughters, Mrs. Robert Dowdle and Mrs. William Dowdle of Camden as well as a number of grandchildren and great grandchildren.  She was twice married.

Following a brief service at the home on Saturday the remains were taken to St. Luke’s Church, Camden East, where a public service was held, which was conducted by Rev. Canon R. W. Spancer.  At the service at the house, Mr. and Mrs. Ward Wartman of Napanee sang very feelingly “Does Jesus Care?”

The casket was laden with beautiful floral tributes and interment was made in St. Luke’s cemetery.  The pall-bearers were six grandson, Percy, James, Archie, Walter, Albert and Harvey Dowdle.

FOUND DEAD IN BED - John R. Cameron Was a Popular Journalist -

Hamilton, Ont., Dec. 30 - John R. Cameron, editor of the Hamilton Spectator, and one of the best known journalists in Canada, died, very suddenly during the night, at his home in East Flamboro.  It may be said of him that he died in harness for while he had not been in the best of health for some time he was in his office right up to noon on Saturday.  On Saturday afternoon, Mr. Cameron consulted his doctor who advised him to take a few holidays, as he appeared to be run down, but even then it was not thought that his condition was serious.  He was able to be about yesterday and last evening retired about the usual hour.  This morning he was found dead in bed.

John Robson Cameron was born in Lanark county, April 19th, 1845.  He learned his trade as a printer in Seaforth and afterwards moved to Sarnia where he worked on the Canadian, subsequently going to Detroit, where he worked for the Free Press.  When the call came for volunteers for the Red River expedition Mr. Cameron was one of the first to offer and was made color-sergeant of his regiment.  He went through the expedition under Wolseley, and afterwards settled in Winnipeg, where he was foreman on the Free Press.  He served as an alderman in Winnipeg for a couple of years and afterward went south and worked on a number of American papers.  When he returned to Canada he worked for a time on Stratford and Guelph papers and twenty-seven years ago he came to Hamilton as city editor of the Spectator.  Later he became managing editor and for the past fourteen years had been chief editor.  Mr. Cameron was known in newspaper circles as one of the brightest paragraphers in Canada and was highly esteemed by all who knew him.  a widow and four daughters survive.

Cameron,

Malcolm

 

HON. MALCOLM CAMERON - Amongst the names which, in Canada, will ever be inseparably connected with the Temperance movement, is that of the late Hon. Malcolm Cameron, whose death was announced a few days ago.  His life, which extended for over a period of sixty-eight years was ever an eventful one, his strong will and impulsive temperament often bringing him into situations sometimes more peculiar than pleasant.  His father was the late Mr. Angus Cameron, for sometime Hospital Sergeant of a Canadian regiment, which was disbanded in 1816, when Mr. Cameron, with his son, the prospective Minister of the State - who eight years previously had been born in Three Rivers - removed to the settlement of Perth, where he opened a house of entertainment, and as a landlord, gained a county-wide reputation. His wife carefully watched over her son, and not only cautioned him against the use of intoxicating drinks, but prevented him from obtaining any when under her jurisdiction. The effect of this watchful care and teaching may be seen in the son’s career, when the temptation to drink must have been almost impossible for any one unless educated as he was to withstand.  When twelve years old he commenced farming on a small scale, and kept the ferry at the Mississippi River, ten miles back from the Village of Perth.  Here his companions were stern, uncompromising Radicals, emigrants from Scotland who imbued the boy’s mind with those principles which ever afterwards had great influence informing his course in life.  His father died in 1822, and young Malcolm being offered a situation in a store in Laprairie removed there the following year.  But his master was one who could not guide a youth such as he had under his control;  a “Radical” imbued with the spirit of those bearing that name from Scotland could not consent to be tyrannized over, and the young man on a bitter cold day in 1821 started off and walked nine miles to this city, which he reached with both cheeks frozen.  Having no money he hired himself out as stable boy to a man named Martin in the Haymarket, where he saved money enough to pay his stage fare home.  His mother was then keeping a boarding house in the town of Perth, and he remained with her during the winter, occupying the time by attendance at the District school.  In the spring he was employed in the brewery and distillery of Hon. A. Graham, where he remained four years, never once deviating from his practice of total abstinence from all that intoxicates.  He spent much of his time during this four years in study, and it may be stated as an evidence of his literary taste, that the first money he saved was sent to England to purchase Hume, Smollet and Lloyd.  He was a voracious reader, and may have been said to have read through every house in the village.  In 1828 he entered into partnership with his brother-in-law, but soon separated, and then went to Scotland, where he entered into a life long partnership with his cousin, Miss Christiana McGregor daughter of Robert McGregor, Esq., cotton spinner, Glasgow.  He was very popular in his county, and in 1836 was elected to Parliament for Lanark, in opposition to Sir Francis Bond Head’s candidate.  He was a strong advocate of the union of the Provinces.  In 1841, he was offered the office of Inspector-General by Lord Sydenham, but declined.  He accepted the office of inspector of Revenue during the administration of Sir Charles Bagot, and subsequently in the Lafontaine-Baldwin and Hincks-Morin administrations held the offices of Assistant Commissioner of Public Works, President of the Executive council, Minister of Agriculture, and Postmaster General;  he was also a Government director of the Grand Trunk Railway, which was under construction.  He held the office of Queen’s Printer of Canada from 1863 to 1869.  In the latter year he resigned to contest South Renfrew for the Commons.  He was defeated, however, as also in 1871, when he contested Russell for the Ontario Legislature, and in the following year when he contested Russell for the House of Commons.  In 1874 he was elected for South Ontario, defeating Hon. T. N. Gibbs.  Hon. Malcolm was a strong, forcible speaker, and was never at fault in adapting himself to any audience which he had to address.  the term “Clear Grit” which has clung so closely to the Reform party, was adopted from the remark in a speech of his “They call us gritty - yes we are, and clear grit at that.”  As an advocate of total prohibition, Mr. Cameron was straightforward and unflinching, and on the platform or in the council of the Sons of Temperance or the Prohibitory League, his words were listened to with careful attention, and his counsel followed.

IN MEMORIAM - On Thursday, Nov. 26th, Mr. A.D. Campbell an old and highly respected resident of Bath, passed to his reward. The deceased was 70 years of age, and although for some years he had been in poor health, the end came unexpectedly.

DEATH OF ALEXANDER CAMPBELL, ESQ.

Never perhaps in the history of our Village did the records of mortality fill up so rapidly as for the last few days.  Another prominent man has fallen, and is numbered with those who were, but are not.  Mr. Campbell, the Postmaster of our Village, and owner of the Campbell House expired on the evening of Thursday last, after a short but painful illness, thus following closely upon the lamented David Roblin, Esq.  Two prominent men, who grew up together, and mingled in many an exciting struggle in political life, are thus almost in a day removed from our midst and consigned to the earth.  An impressive warning this, and eminently calculated to moderate our worldly cares and lead us to think of, and prepare for the boundless future.

Mr. Campbell was born in Adolphustown, in April of 1803, and was consequently at the time of his death nearly 60 years of age.  His grandfather and father were U. E. Loyalists and were amongst the first settlers in this county.  Mr. Campbell was a Surveyor by profession, but for a number of years past had been in mercantile business in Napanee.  He succeeded A. McPherson, Esq., as Postmaster of our Village, and had held that office for several years.  He also held other minor offices in the gift of the Government, and of the Municipality.  Mr. Campbell was for some time proprietor and editor of this paper, and had some reputation as a public journalist.  More than once he was amongst those who were likely candidates for Parliamentary honors, but he never stood at an election.  For many years he was a staunch supporter of the Reform party, but in 1836, judging that they were going too far, he left them and ever after held himself to be a Conservative, but notwithstanding supported Mr. Roblin in his two last contests.  Mr. Campbell, in religious attachments was an Episcopalian.  He leaves a widow and several children to mourn his loss.  He was buried in the Methodist Cemetery on Saturday P.M., being followed to his grave by a number of mourning relatives, and a large concourse of friends.  The widow and children have the heartfelt sympathy of the community.

OBITUARY - Dorothea Campbell

On April 28th, 1922, death entered the home of Mr. and Mrs. Stewart Close, and took from their loving care their beloved and only daughter, Dorothea Campbell, who in thirteen short years had finished her life’s work and heard the call, “Let the little ones come unto me”.  Little Dorothea, who had been ill for more than a year, was always the joy and sunshine of her home.

Having been touched by the Spirit of God very early in life, she learned to love His ways and now has gone to be with Him, to whom she gave her heart.

Much sympathy is extended to the sorrowing parents and friends by the entire community who can but bid them remember that it is but one more in the chain that binds earth to heaven.

The funeral service was conducted by the Pastor, Rev. H. S. Clark, at the home, and interment in Reidville cemetery.  The pall bearers were Messrs. Willis and Fred Galbraith, Patsy Nolan,  Wilfred Haggarty, Blake Barrigar, and Perry Armstrong. 

The list of floral offerings were:  Mr. and Mrs. Stewart Close and brother, Raymond Campbell, wreath;  Mr. and Mrs. Leeman Campbell, sheaf;  Mr. and Mrs. Laughlin Campbell, sheaf;  Mr. and Mrs. W. B.

MRS. GEORGE C. CAMPBELL -  Whose maiden name was M. A. Murdock, fell asleep in Jesus on the 17th of September 1885.  She was born in Letterkenny, County Donegal, Ireland, about the year 1828.  She came to Canada with her parents and settled at Sand Point in Ontario.  On the 25th of January, 1847, she was united in marriage to Mr. George C. Campbell, who survives her and as a local preacher, delights in laboring for the Master.  The last thirty years of her life were spent at Forester’s Falls, Ont., at which place she was led to give her heart to the Saviour.  It was during the meetings conducted by Rev. D. Pomeroy that she found peace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and joined the Methodist Church, of which she remained a member until removed to the Church triumphant.  For years before her removal she was greatly afflicted, consequently her attendance at the house of God was very irregular, but her faith failed not, and she could say the best of all is, God is with me.  For some months before her release, at times her reason was almost gone, and she would imagine strange things.  But a few days before her death her former tenderness, patience, kindness, gentleness and joy in the Holy Ghost returned and remained till she passed triumphantly to the better land.  [signed] Wm.

Death of Mr. Canniff

Early Experience in this City - Frontier Military Service - His Public Usefulness

One after another of the pioneers of Canada and the other veterans of 1812 are passing away. Mr. Jonas Canniff, who died at the residence of his son, Dr. Canniff, at Toronto, on Sunday, had passed his 92nd birthday. He was born in Duchess county, N.Y. and came into the wilderness of Upper Canada when four years of age with his father, whose attachment to the British flag led him to undertake the long and tedious journey with his family and household goods in order to make a home on British soil.

The family settled in Adolphustown, and here the father, James Canniff, lived and died at a good old age. In 1815 Jonas moved to his half-constructed log house on the River Moira, near Belleville. Mr. Canniff served faithfully in 1812 as Sergeant in Captain Dorland's Company, raised in Adolphustown, under Colonel Cartwright at Kingston. When the American fleet passed down the bay from Bath with the object of attacking Kingston, he with his Company followed the vessels, which continued to send cannon shot among the militia, until they passed Kingston, not venturing to approach the shore. In 1815 Belleville was not yet named, and was but a small village, and only a few scattered settlers existed in the county of Hastings. Mr. Canniff was one of the pioneers in building saw and grist mills. He was a man of great energy, industry, integrity and Christian principle. After acting as Township Clerk for one year, shortly after the organization of the township of Thurlow, he steadfastly declined to accept any office. He was appointed a Justice of the Peace, but did not qualify. He assisted to organize the first Agricultural Association, but declined the Presidency. His body will be removed to Belleville for burial in the family plot.

Carr-Harris,

Capt. E. D.

 

Yielded up His Life – For His Country in a Righteous Cause – The Late E. D. Carr-Harris, of Kingston, who was Killed in Battle at Forts in Gulf of Aden.

The news of the death of Capt. E. D. Carr-Harris, formerly of Kingston, who was killed in action during the battle in connection with the capture of the forts at the Gulf of Aden, has cast gloom not only upon the father and surviving brothers of the deceased heroic soldier, but upon a wide circle of friends.  Capt Carr-Harris was the son of Prof. R. Carr-Harris, Mack Street, of this city, and was born at Thurso Quebec.  In 1879 he came to Kingston and received a splendid education.  After graduating from high school, the late Capt. Carr-Harris took a two years course at Queen’s university and later entered the Royal Military College.  At this widely known military training college he achieved the highest honors that could possibly be won and graduated from the same in June, 1899.  His class was last that took the four year course, the period being changed to three years after the conclusion of this graduating session.  Capt. Carr-Harris was considered on of the cleverest students who ever went through the R.M.C., and was instrumental in taking the most prizes ever awarded a graduate.  He took the award of honor, held the battalion sergeant majorship, won the class prize and was captain of the football team.  Upon graduating he won those badges for such merit as the “star”, for being first in class marks, the “crown” for being first in five or more subjects;  “crossed rifles” , “crossed guns”, “crossed swords”, “crossed flags”, also “crossed spurs” for distinction in all subjects.  After graduating, Captain Carr-Harris accepted a commission in the Royal Engineers and joined the depot at Chatham England, being at this place for only nine months instead of the usual period of two years, before being sent on active service.  The late Captain Carr-Harris’ duties first brought him into distinction during the Boxer uprising in China.  Several years intervened, during which time the deceased reached a high stage of proficiency, after which between the years 1908 and 1912 he was the Royal Engineer in charge of construction of the so called “Broker Road” from the frontiers of India through the zone of independent states reaching almost as far as the frontiers of Afghanistan.  This road had often been attempted, but never completed until 1912  by the British government.  Recognition was then forthcoming for his valuable services, and he was nominated by selection to the India Staff College at Quetta by the commander-in-chief of the Indian army, then Sir O’Moore Creagh.  Captain Carr-Harris completed his two years course at the staff college at the beginning of last October and was dispatched as immediate field engineer.  In such a service the already distinguished soldier was recently sent forward, sailing from Bombay with the great expeditionary force which was successful in capturing the Turkish forts and positions at the mouth to the Gulf of  Aden.  Captain Carr-Harris’ able engineering was duly responsible for this wonderful achievement, but in the execution of it the noble officer lost his life.  When he was interviewed on Monday evening, the father of the heroic officer said; “It was better for my son to die in a noble cause than for the British race and empire to be destroyed by the internal spirit by which Germany seems to be actuated.”  Capt. Carr-Harris is the first Kingston soldier to give his life for his country and empire in this great war.

Joseph Carrington – Kingston lost one of her best known  citizens on Wednesday, September 14, one, who, for many years, was one of the principal business men of the city, in the person of John Joseph Carrington, who passed away very suddenly, at his home on River street, about noon.  Deceased was sixty-three of age.  The late Mr. Carrington was born at Picton, on October 25th, 1847, and received all his early training and education here.  When quite a young man, he went into the tanning business, with his father, John Carrington, at Picton.  In 1876, their factory was burned down, and he and his father then moved to Gananoque, and started a tannery there.  They stayed in Gananoque until 1884, when they sold out, deceased coming to Kingston, and establishing the now well-known tannery.  He opened it himself, and although it was a very small beginning, but soon developed into one of the city’s best industries, in fact it was looked upon as one of the best tanneries in Ontario.  Deceased conducted this tannery, until six years ago, when he disposed of it to A. Davis & Son.  He was known all over the district, and held the respect of all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance.  Deceased is survived by his wife, formerly Adelaide Victoria, youngest daughter of J. Parmenter, of Gananoque, to whom he was married in 1881, and two daughters Mrs. C. J. W. Lowe, of Toronto and Mrs. George Bawden of Kingston.

The Late Mrs. Mary Carroll

On Wednesday afternoon, November 1st, there passed peacefully away at her home, Sandhurst, Mrs. Mary Carroll, widow of the late Joseph Carroll.  Mrs. Carroll had been confined to her bed for the past three weeks, having sustained injuries from a bad fall.  During her illness her daughter, Mrs. Anderson, R.N., gave devoted and untiring care.

Before her marriage she was Mary Lynn, eldest daughter of the late Miles Lynn and Jane McCausland, of Irish descent.  All her life had been spent in the Sandhurst district where in her quiet, lovable way she was a friend of all

She leaves to mourn her loss a family of seven.  Mrs. Hoselton (Maggie), Jack, Detroit, Mrs Whitfield (Aggie), Mrs. Hudson (Maude), Mrs. Wilson (Mollie), Wilmington, Mrs. Anderson (Sara), Cleveland, and James;  a sister in New York, ten grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.  A son, Arthur, lost his life in the Great War.

The funeral was held last Saturday at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, where she had attended faithfully.  The large attendance and beautiful floral tributes bore silent testimony of the high respect in which she was held.  Rev. Brazill, her rector, assisted by Rev. Quarterman, a former rector, had charge of the service.  Mr. Brazill delivered a very comforting and inspiring sermon in which he paid the highest tribute possible to Mrs. Carroll, when he called her a Christian woman and one from whose unassuming and Christian life, we could well take our example.”  the pall-bearers were Messrs R. Hoselton, R. Whitfield, J. Anderson, C. Hudson, A. Whitfield and H. Claringbold.

Interment was made in the family plot in St. Paul’s cemetery.

Think of her faring on as dear,

In the love of There, as the love of Here.

Think of her still as the same, I say,

She is not dead - she is just away.

PASSING OF T. G. CARSCALLEN, ESQ. M.L.A. - On Thursday morning March 15th 1917, the whole community, without regard to class or party, was shocked by the announcement of the passing of Thomas G. Carscallen, Esq., representative of the Riding of Lennox in the Legislature of the Province of Ontario. He had been in attendance at the Legislature since the opening of the Session, and as was his custom, returned home on Friday evening last. The same night he was taken ill, and his physician pronounced it an extremely serious case of pneumonia. Other physicians were called in consultation and for a time it was hoped he would throw off the disease. The interest of his fellow citizens was shown in hundreds of anxious enquiries. On Wednesday it was apparent that exhaustion had been reached and at the break of the new day he passed peacefully and resignedly to rest. Mr. Carscallen was probably the most generally known resident of the County and especially of the Riding of Lennox, which he represented so long and so worthily. He had a record that few public men could boast of - that he was never beaten at the polls. As a lifelong and consistent Conservative, he enjoyed the confidence of the party locally as well as of the Leaders, but it was largely his personal popularity and a universal esteem for his upright life and his commercial integrity that drew to him the continuous support of the best element of the community. His passing calls forth regrets from all who knew him without regard to special standing, greed or politics. Mr. Carscallen's was an eminently useful life in a practical way. The community in which he lived, and the Province he served, are all better for his life's work, and his passing was "peace with honor" in the highest sense. Thomas G. Carscallen was a son of the late Isaac Carscallen, during his life, one of the most respected residents of North Fredericksburgh. Three brothers survive him, John D. whose active life was as a farmer on the homestead, two miles southwest of Napanee, but who has latterly been associated with the deceased in the undertaking business. Two brothers, Rufus and Norris, live at Dresden, Ontario. The early business career of the deceased was as a contracting painter and paperhanger, but about thirty years ago, he established an undertaking business, for which purpose he graduated from the best instructors of the day. In all his business undertakings, he enjoyed the confidence and support of the public. Forty-four years ago, Mr. Carscallen married Melinda, daughter of the late Alex. Mair. They were blessed with only one child, a daughter who lived but three months. Reciprocal devotion to each other made their social associations and their home life beautiful. Mrs. Carscallen predeceased her husband by only eleven months, and since this bereavement, his friends have remarked that his was a stricken life. For him in passing there was no moaning at the bar, only a joyous reunion in the harbor beyond. It was as a public man that Mr. Carscallen was best and most widely know. He first entered public life as a member of the municipal council of Napanee, in which he held a seat for seventeen years, five as Councillor, eight as Reeve, and four years as Mayor. He was also Warden of the County for one year. It was generally recognized that he was one of the most practical and efficient municipal representatives the town ever had. Mr. Carscallen was first elected to the Legislature in 1902, and was again returned at every election since, representing his native riding for nearly 15 successive years. He exercised a quiet but unusually strong influence in the Legislature and the administrative departments and this was always available to supporter and opponent alike. Few men possessed so fully the confidence of his associates and the esteem of his fellow citizens. Mr. Carscallen was born April 9th 1843. The funeral will be held privately on Saturday at 1 o'clock at the family residence and at Trinity Methodist Church at 2 o'clock.

THE LATE FRANK CARSON - The death occurred on Wednesday afternoon of one of Napanee’s well-known citizens, Mr. Frank Carson, after an illness of but a few days.  Deceased was taken ill on Saturday July 24th, the cause being later diagnosed as appendicitis. The following Saturday, an operation was successfully performed by Dr. Mundell of Kingston but complications set in, ending in death.  The subject of this sketch was born in South Napanee on February 28th, 1874, being a son of the late John and Hester Carson.  He was educated in our local schools and at an early age entered the shop of his father to learn the harnessmaking business, where he has employed his time ever since.  On the death of his father in 1903, the care and management of the business fell upon his shoulders and to his credit be it said that he made it a success.  In 1906, he was married to Miss Nora Lake, who survives him.  Like his father, Frank always took an active interest in affairs pertaining to the welfare of the town.  In 1912, he offered his services as Councillor, and was elected as he also was in 1913, 1914 and 1915, last year occupying the responsible position of Finance Minister.  Deceased was a prominent member of Argyll Lodge No. 212  I.O.O.F., in which he took an active interest having occupied every office in the gift of his brethren.  He was also closely and actively associated with Trinity Methodist Church, in the Sunday School, and for a number of years was a member of the choir.  In the death of Frank, the Church and State loses a valuable member and citizen, who deeply regret his early death.  Besides his wife, he leaves two brothers and one sister, Mr. James Carson, of DeKalb Junction, N.Y.;  Wm. J. Carson of Killarney, Man., and Mrs. Mark Graham, Napanee.  The funeral will take place from his late residence, Newburgh Road this (Friday) afternoon at 2 o’clock.  Service at the house, thence to Riverside Cemetery.

OBITUARY – MRS. THOS. W. CASEY – Mrs. Anne Empey Casey, widow of the late Thos. W. Casey, died at her home on Piety Hill, May 19, 1919, in her eighty-sixth year.  Mrs. Casey was born at Empey Hill on the 29th of March, 1834.  She was the second and last surviving daughter of Fletcher Empey and Charlotte Long, who both died when their children were young. The eldest, Mahala, became the wife of Thos. McGreer and Martha, the youngest, married the late Rev. James Thompson.  Mrs. Casey is survived by her son, Willet F. Casey, of Boston;  Mrs. A. R. Davis, Toronto;  Miss Nellie, of Troy, N.Y.; the Misses Annie and Dora at home and two grandchildren, Eleanor and Gordon Davis.  Mrs. Casey’s paternal great grandfather belonged to the original Methodist society formed by John Wesley in Ireland.  An obituary notice of her grandfather states:  “In 1788 he emigrated to the State of New York and became the means of introducing Methodism in a new settlement not far from noted Ash Grove.  Afterwards he became a resident in the Township of Richmond, Upper Canada and his dwelling soon became a preaching house, and to many, the place of their conversion.”  Mrs. Casey thus came naturally to her Methodist inheritance, and for many years her devotion to her church and unswerving faith in the religion of her forefathers made her a strong influence in the religious life of her generation.  In 1866 a woman’s class was formed in the Wesleyan Methodist Church, Napanee after a revival held by Dr. Meacham, and of this she became and continued leader for nearly forty years.  She was also active in other departments of the church work, where her deep spiritual life was a benefit and blessing to all who came in contact with her.  During her declining years she was relieved of all care by her faithful daughters, Anna and Dora, and thus was enabled to enjoy a good old age.  As a friend remarked, her passing was a beautiful sunset to a beautiful life.

Late H.W. Casey

He Died on Monday After a Long Illness

The late Hiram W. Casey, whose death occurred at his residence on Brock street on Monday evening, was of thorough UE Loyalist stock. His grandparents were William Casey, Adolphustown, and Andrew Johnson, Hallowell, both of whom were of the first UE Loyalist pioneers in these townships. He was born in Adolphustown sixty-nine years ago. After spending his early years in his native township, he resided for a time in Newburgh and then Napanee. Some years ago, he removed to Kingston where he has since resided. For years he has been troubled with consumption and for the last two years or more he has been almost totally incapacitated because of that disease, and it became evident to himself and his friends that he could not possibly recover. He viewed his end with the full resignation and confidence of a true Christian. He was a consistent member of the Methodist Church, and a regular attendant of the Queen street church here. About forty five years ago, he married Miss Jane Murdoch, of Fredericksburgh, a lady well known and much respected among the Christian workers of this city. She survives him with their two children, Mrs. R.J. Carson, of Brock street and R. O. Casey of the city of Syracuse. He was a man of much intelligence and a great reader. He was an active supporter of the liberal party. Up to almost his last hours he was a constant reader and supporter of the Whig. His interest in the affairs of his country and his church remained active to his last hours.

SAMUEL THORNE CASEY - Passed peacefully away from earth November, 1886. Bro. Casey was born in Adolphustown, Nov. 28th 1807. He was converted at eleven years of age, and joined the Methodist Church, in which he remained an acknowledged member 68 years. He knew the history of Methodism in Canada in its early struggles and triumphs better than most laymen I ever met. He was sound in Methodist theology, and rejoiced in a personal knowledge of justification by faith, and believed in and sought after the growth and maturity of the graces of the Holy Spirit. His sickness was of three years' duration, and the disease of which he died, dropsy. As a wise man he in good time settled all his financial affairs as he wished. As the end drew near he became more spiritual, and at times apparently lost in contemplating his home in heaven, triumphing in the hope of eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. He was three times married, and has left a widow and five children who "mourn not as those who have o hope."  "Follow him as he followed Christ."    H. Williams

THOS. W. CASEY - The Local Historian, Has Joined his Ancestors -  A prominent citizen of our town, and a lifelong resident of this county, Mr. Thomas W. Casey, passed over to the great majority on Friday evening last, after an illness of nearly a year, a stroke of paralysis the day previous hastening the end of a long and trying sickness.  Deceased was a descendant of the U.E. Loyalists who landed on the shores of Adolphustown while it was yet a wilderness, at the close of the American rebellion, loyally preferring to endure loss of property and hardship that they might remain under the old flag.  Those of his family who landed at Adolphustown were his grand uncle, Willet Casey, and his grandfather, Wm. Casey.  They were natives of Providence, R. I., and both were active in the American War, and left for Canada at its close.  They first moved to the western border of Lake Champlain, supposing it was British territory, but finding this was not so when the international boundary was finally settled, they left for Upper Canada.  Willet Casey died in 1848, aged 86 years.  William Casey, deceased’s grandfather, died in 1842, aged 81 years.  They were progressive men.  Willet Casey erected the first iron foundry in the district, probably near “Carnahan Bay,” in the 2d Con. of Adolphustown, and is said to have cast the first iron mouldboard plows, known to be made in the province.  He was also elected to Parliament in about 18-1 and sat for a few years.  Later on his son Samuel, was elected to that position, and in still later years his grandson, Dr. Willet Casey, was elected for Prince Edward County.  William Casey, grandfather of deceased, erected the first wool-carding mill, located at first at Lake-on-the-Mountain, now Glenora, early in the century.  Deceased was a son of the late Willet Casey, and inherited his father’s beautiful farm at Casey’s Point, at the mouth of Hay Bay.  He was educated at Victoria University, Cobourg, and early acquired literary tastes which drew him away from farming pursuits, and into the newspaper world.  In 1874, he purchased the Napanee Express, and later assumed the Editorship of the Canada Casket, the organ of the Independent Order of Good Templars, and Grand Secretary for a number of years.  He was a life long total abstainer, and was known from Sarnia to Halifax as a fluent and earnest temperance worker and lecturer.  He was also appointed a provincial inspector  by Hon. Oliver Mowat at the time of Dunkin Act and Scott Act campaigns, and was a conscientious and fearless worker in a cause which lay near to his heart.  Perhaps the late Thos. W. Casey is better known to a large number of people in Canada and the United States, through his researches into the history of the United Empire Loyalists, and his “Old time records,” which were for years, a feature of the Beaver, and which he edited.  He knew the history of his loyal ancestors and his native Townships perhaps better than any man now living, and was consulted from far and near when the tangled skein of family history needed unravelling.  Mr. C. C. James, Deputy Minister of Agriculture, was a close student of Mr. Casey, and consulted him frequently in his work of compiling the early history of our province.  Mr. Casey’s ancestors were amongst the first Methodists in  this  the cradle of Methodism, and deceased was a faithful adherent of the Eastern church.  No man will be more missed about town and county than the late Thos. W. Casey.  His genial smile and kindly interest in all made him particularly welcome wherever he went, and it will be many a day, and perhaps never, before one will rise up who will study and place on record the early history and heroic deeds of our forefathers.  Mr. Casey was a life long, but broad minded member of the  Reform Party, and was at one time a candidate for the local legislature, being defeated by the late Hon. John Stevenson in a three-cornered fight, in which the late Benj. C. Davy was a candidate.  Besides his bereaved and faithful wife, he leaves one son, Mr. Willet F. Casey, of Boston, Mass., and four daughters, Mrs. A. R. Davis, Brandon, Man.; Miss Nellie, Troy, N.Y., and Misses Anna and Dora at home.  The funeral services were conducted at his home on Monday afternoon, by Rev. C. E. McIntyre, who spoke feelingly and eloquently of the good qualities and sterling goodness of the deceased. The remains were afterwards interred in the Eastern cemetery.  Amongst the relatives from a distance in attendance were his cousins, Dr. John Farley, Belleville;  Wm Farley, Brighton;  Col. Farley, Quebec City;  Charles Farley, Belleville;  Albert Anderson, Rossmore, and Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Carson, Kingston.

A. W. Caton Dies at Grimsby

The death occurred at Grimsby, Ontario, on Saturday, November 19, of Archibald Wesley Caton, a former well-known resident of Napanee and Newburgh.  His funeral was held at his late residence in Grimsby and interment was made at Newburgh cemetery on Tuesday afternoon.

The late Mr. Caton was born a little over eighty years ago at Newburgh and was a son of the late Allan Caton, druggist of the village.  His youth and young manhood were spent in Newburgh and after his marriage to Hattie Lloyd, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Lloyd of the Newburgh Road, he took up farming north of Napanee.   For some years, at a later period, he lived in Montreal and Cleveland, where he was a representative of an American fish company.  Some time later he and his wife returned to the Lloyd farm about three miles from Napanee, where Mr. Caton conducted a dairy farm.  His herd of Jerseys was well known throughout Ontario, and Mr. Caton’s progressive ideas brought him considerable success in his farming.

After farming for a number of years, Mr. and Mrs. Caton brought the Finkle home in Newburgh, where they lived until Mrs. Caton’s death, over ten years ago.  A few years ago, Mr. Caton married Mary A. Meeks of Grimsby and lived in Grimsby until his death .  His only son, Morris Caton, died in New York about three years ago, leaving a son and a daughter, who reside in the United States.

Death of Arthur Chalmers

On the morning of August 9th, at the home of his cousin, Thomas Chalmers, where he was visiting when his last sickness attacked him, died Arthur Chalmers, youngest son of Mrs. Wm. Chalmers, of Parma. Though of delicate health for a year or so, and his last illness was very severe, yet death's swift approach was hardly suspected. His short life has been a most innocent one, and withal a useful one. He was a very constant worshipper and regular communicant in St. Alban's Church, Adolphustown, and with his fine bass voice assisted very effectively in the choir work of the church. It seemed that he could ill be spared. But the fiat had gone forth, "The Lord hath need of him." After only nineteen years of life on earth, the Lord has called him to the higher service in His Paradise. The burial service was held August 11th in his old home at Parma, on account of his mother's weak condition, the consequence of constant nursing, the interment being in the family plot of St. Alban's Church yard. The vast number who attended the service showed, very clearly, general esteem for the deceased, as well as tender sympathy with his sorrowing mother, brothers and sisters.

The Late Peter Chalmers, Adolphustown

The announcement of the death of Peter Chalmers, of pneumonia, on Feb. 6th, at the age of sixty-two years, was received with profound regret throughout a large section of the surrounding country, for no man has ever been better loved and more highly esteemed for his public and private virtues by the community in which he lived than he. He was a native of Ireland, having been born in the county of Wicklow on the 24th Dec., 1831. With his parents and brothers and sisters he came to Canada in the year 1849. In the year 1868 he married Jane Russell, daughter of Thos. Russell, of North Fredericksburgh, and settled upon the picturesque spot at the head of Carnahan bay, in Adolphustown, which has been his home ever since; and where he has brought up his family of seven children, six of whom; one son and five daughters, survive to mourn with their stricken mother their irreparable loss. His property, the fruits of his honourable toil, consists of two hundred acres of arable land, upon which only two years ago he erected a fine residence. He was a member of the Church of England, and in politics was a staunch conservative. The funeral of the deceased took place on Thursday, 8th inst., and was the ---sion of an immense gathering of friends and acquaintances. The service was held in St. Alban's Memorial church by the Rev. R.S. Forneri, who preached the funeral sermon, taking his text from Luke XII-10. "We are all mourners here this morning," said the preacher, "a life of practical godliness, a life that proclaimed by every act that our departed brother was a true follower of God, has come to a premature end. The wise and loving husband and father, the staunch friend, the high-minded citizen, the earnest churchman, the diligent worker - Peter Chalmers, with his open hand and big heart, has passed from our sight, but never from our love or our memory. The empty place in the home can only be filled by Him that has made it empty. Every member of this church must feel with me (continued the preacher) that a strong stay has gone from us. A wider circle, for whom I may presume to speak, mourn the loss of a dear friend, a still wider one, represented by all here present from near and far, feel an affectionate and earnest sympathy with the stricken hearts in the mourners' pew to-day." Later on in the discourse the preacher dwelt more particularly upon the character of the departed, and showed how "to live the life of practical christianity was the end of his desire and of his deed.

 

History of the Chalmers - The Story of the Ancestry of the Family Shortly Presented -

With reference to the obituary notice of the late Peter Chalmers, of Adolphustown, which appeared in our issue of 17th Feb., a relative of his in Scotland writes to us as follows:

   "You describe Peter Chalmers as a native of Ireland, which is true in the sense that a man is said to be a native of the country in which he was born. His father, Peter Chalmers, was a native of the parish of Blairgowrie, Perthshire, Scotland, who lived in Ireland for a few years before settling in Canada. His father, James Chalmers, was a farmer in Mains of Mause in Blairgowrie parish, whose wife's name was Margaret McGlashan. They had eleven children of whom Peters was the eldest. They belonged to a race of sterling worth, long settled in the parish. There has always been one or more of them elders in the Kirk session of Blairgowrie since the reformation. The above James Chalmers' father, William, was ordained to the eldership in 1759, and his father, James (Cauldhame) in 1715. He was the James Chalmers mentioned in the famous story of "The Chalet o'Mause (1730) which was seen by a man named Soutar. The Chalmers' traced their descent from Thomas de Camera, of Drumloughlie parish of Blairgowrie, who received a charter of the lands of Drumlouchie from King Robert the Bruce" (See p. 18 No. 90, Robertson's Index of Charters.)

Thomas Herbert

 

Thomas Herbert Chalmers died suddenly at his home on the Trent Road, Sidney Township, on Saturday, Oct 15. He was apparently in good health when taken with a heart seizure and died immediately.

To many friends, the sudden death of Mr. Chalmers will bring sincere regret. He was widely known in Belleville and throughout the district and was highly esteemed. For many years he was engaged in the farm implement agency business in Belleville as representative for the Frost and Wood Company of Smiths Falls. For a time the business was known as Chalmers and Hollis; later a change was made and the firm became Chalmers and Hubbs. This arrangement was dissolved in 1930 and from that time until 1932 when he retired, he conducted the business alone. In every respect he was a good citizen; he resided in Belleville and in the vicinity since 1914.

The late Mr. Chalmers, who was in his 74th year, was born at Adolphustown, Lennox County, his parents being the late Mr. and Mrs. William Chalmers. During his residence in Belleville he was a faithful member of St. Thomas' Anglican Church and served at one time as a warden and also as a representative to the diocesan Synod. Fraternally he was a life member of Prince Edward Lodge No. 18 A.F. & A.M.

Mr. Chalmers was twice married, his first wife was Margaret David; she died in 1945 and a year ago last May he married Mabel Roblin, who survives him, together with a son, Mr. Gordon Chalmers, Trent Road.

Obituary - Wm. Chalmers

Death of the last of a large family.

St. Alban's church, Adolphustown, was filled an many had to remain outside on Monday last, the occasion being the funeral of the late William Chalmers, of South Fredericksburgh, who died very suddenly on Friday last. Deceased had been enjoying the best of health for some weeks, even better than he had previously been, was jovial and able to do work upon the farm. He retired about ten o'clock and before he had gone to sleep felt a distress in his throat, got up and sat in a chair and asked from a drink of water. He said he believed he was going, which were the last words he said that could be understood. He shook his wife's  hand and tried to speak but could not and passed away in a few minutes. Dr. Northmore was telephoned for but before he could arrive he had passed away from the earth to join a son and three brothers and two sisters who had gone before, all but one having died within the last few years, making a death each year for '93, '94,'95,'96. He leaves a fine family of five boys and four girls, and their mother and many friends to mourn his loss. Peter Chalmers, the father of this family, moved from Scotland to Ireland when a young man, and followed the calling of land steward there. He married and raised a family of four boys and two girls, living in the counties of Wicklow and Carlo. About forty-eight years ago the family moved to Canada. The direct object in view was the taking of a farm to work belonging to the father's brother, who was then lock master near Montreal or Ottawa and teaching his son the business, but just the night before they arrived this brother died; thus they changed their course and went to Toronto, thinking of taking up a farm in the wooded condition and clearing it. But one son, James, having a letter to Major Boucher at Kingston, said he would take the letter to him and perchance something else might turn up. Major Boucher went to the mayor of the city and he offered to give the young man a position on the police force, but he declined, saying he would not like the work; his business was farming. He was then given a letter to a Church of England minister in Adolphustown, who in those days made their living out of farms belonging to the parish. Although he did not get a situation with this gentleman he got work near by, and after attending church service on the following Sunday and seeing the congregation he thought he had come to a good land, and immediately wrote to the rest of the family at Toronto, who in a short time came to him and settled in or near Adolphustown. James Chalmers afterwards sailed on the bay and lakes for seventeen years, after which he took to faming only, at which he worked until his death. The rest of the family all took to farming and have made homes for themselves and families. A singular incident of the family is that they loved to be together and have died within a short space of time. Thomas Chalmers died in 1866, Mrs. Eliza Chalmers Hart died in 1888, Mrs. Margaret Chalmers Drury died in 1893, Peter Chalmers died in 1894, James Chalmers died in 1895, William Chalmers died in 1896, the last four leaving large families.

Mrs. William

 

One of the most highly respected residents of the community, in the person of Mrs. William Chalmers, passed away at her home, Parma, on Saturday, the 29th day of March. The funeral on Monday was largely attended, the burial service being taken by her Clergyman, the Rev. A.S. Dickinson, rector of Adolphustown. Mrs. Chalmers was in her seventy-fifth year and had lived most of her days in the home where she died. Latterly her health had not been all that might be desired, and when stricken with influenza about a month ago, her illness proved fatal. Mrs. Chalmers will be greatly missed by a host of friends to whom she had endeared herself. She was a kind neighbor and a loyal, consistent God fearing church woman. The good influence exerted by her during life will be a lasting tribute to her memory, for it manifests itself in the lives of her sons and daughters who are a creditable, living witness to the wise counsel and careful training of a good Christian mother, who was dearly loved by them all. Mrs. Chalmers leaves to mourn her loss four sons, Harry of Kingston; Herbert, of Belleville; George, of Adolphustown; Albert, at home and four daughters, Mrs. F.B. Roblin, Mrs. Hugh Milling, Mrs. Roy Johnston, and Miss Gertrude, all of whom have the sincere sympathy of their many friends and neighbours in their recent bereavement.

Death of Mr. Fred. Chinneck. – One of the few remaining business men of the early days of Napanee, 50 years ago, passed away early Sunday morning in the person of Fred Chinneck, at the age of 73 years, after a six months illness.  He was active in his business until last November.  This was his first and only illness due no doubt to his regular and conservative habits of living and fortunately he suffered no pain during his sickness.  Born in Devonport, Devonshire, England, he came to Ontario a boy of about 9 years, with his parents, and lived in the County of Wellington till grown up.  He came east to Napanee in 1873, and established the Jewellery business which still bears his name.  He was a lifelong Conservative and a member of the Church of England, and leaves to mourn his loss a son and daughter in the business here, and daughter, Mrs. Foley, in Medicine Hat, Alta.  Owing to the fact that the Rev.

SAD DEATH AT CHIPPEWA -  One of the saddest deaths ever recorded took place on Dec 14th, when Miss Mary A. Clair passed to her reward.  What the reward was we know not but we do know that Mary was a constant worker of the church and a devoted member of the Sacred Heart.  Deceased had been ailing for some time previous to her death but during her long and weary hours of illness she was never know to complain and was always willing to share her lot however unpleasant it was.  Mary was of an amiable and lively disposition which endeared her to all.  Through life she won many friends, but all the while her young life was nearing its destiny.  What a sadness it was for her dear ones to think that she must be removed from their earthly eyes forevermore, but all was in vain for Mary had to go.  Her funeral which was one of the largest seen in some time, consisted of nearly ninety vehicles, followed the remains to the Roman Catholic Church, Chippewa, where a solemn high mass of requiem was sung by Rev. Father O’Reilly, after which the remains were place in the vault to await interment in the spring.  Her pallbearers were Edward and James Tallon, John and Joseph Dowling and Thomas and Michael Moran.  The sorrowing family have the deepest sympathy of the whole community in their sad hour of bereavement.

One of the Oldest Residents Dead.

Henry L. Clapp, one of the oldest settlers died Sunday March 13th, 1921.  Mr. Clapp was born in Adolphustown, Canada, Nov. 2nd 1840.  He was the son of Dorland L. Clapp and Eleanor Huffman Clapp.  He moved with his parents to Watertown, N.Y., in 1840, and to Omaha, Nebraska, in 1856.  At this time he was not satisfied with the  prospects for Nebraska and so he traveled on to investigate conditions in several of the western states, but returned to Nebraska and in 1867 took a homestead five miles northwest of the present town of Elmwood.  Mr. Clapp’s father was one of the original homesteaders of this community and lived to a ripe old age, passing away in 1909 at the age of 96.  His mother died in 1894.  He was the oldest of four children, a sister, Minerva Clapp Robinson, died in 1906.  A brother, Charles D., died in 1919 and Smith J., now living in Logan, Kas.  Mr. Clapp’s father and brother, Chas., D., helped to build some of the first houses in Lincoln, and in many of the smaller towns in the western part of the state.  On Oct. 9th, 1872, Mr. Clapp married to Jennie Conn, of Greenwood, Nebraska, who survives him.  He also leaves a daughter, Mrs. Blanche C. Harger, of Chicago, and one son, Henry L, of Elmwood, and two grandchildren, Marion and James Harger.  Mr. Clapp’s estate still retains the original homestead, although in 1884 he moved to another farm two miles south of the old home, and in 1894, he moved into Elmwood, where he has since made his home.  Mr. Clapp was stricken with his last illness in December, 1919 and was confined to his home and most of the time to his bed since then.  Through all his long and trying illness he was patient and cheerful and sought to make the lot of his nurse and wife as pleasant as possible.  In business life he was known throughout eastern Nebraska and was the epitome of honor and was greatly respected.  At his request the funeral was  held at the family home on Tuesday, March 15th, by his pastor, Rev. F. E. Sala, and was laid to rest in the Elmwood cemetery.

For the Hallowell Free Press.  An Awful Providence.

Mr. Editor,

Sir, - Viewing in your Editorial remarks in the last number of the Free Press, a short notice of a distressing scene which occured in this town on Sunday last, relative to the death of Mr. Philip Clapp, and believing a more particular discription of this awful exhibition of Omnipotent power would be satisfactory to some of your readers and might convey through the medium of the press, inteligence of the awful catastrophe to some distant friends, I send you for insertion a detail of the circumstances as far as I have been able to collect them.

The deceased it appears after returning from preaching on Sunday afternoon, went into the field to drive up his cows;  on his return a sudden thunder shower arose, and before he could reach his dwelling to elude the rain that now descended in torrents, it would appear took shelter under the wide spreading boughs of an elm.  He had not remained long under this fabled asylum before a flash of lightning came in contact with the top of the tree, and descending the same with the quickness of thought, hurried the victim of its vengence into the presence of the "Judge of quick and dead."  And here let me observe, that it would be injustice to language to attempt to give a literal  description of the scene to a non-beholder;  suffice it to say, that not one thread of any part of his clothing remained on the body when first discovered, except the collar of his shirt and his neck handkerchief.  From appearance the electric fluid passed down the body, tearing and scattering to the distance of several rods the entire clothing he had on, passing out at the bottom of the foot without injuring the body to outward appearance, except the second toe, which was cut off.  A coroner's Inquest was held on Monday before S. Washburn, Esq. - Verdict of the Jury "that the deceased came to his death by a stroke of lightning."  On Tuesday his remains were carried "to that borne from whence no traveller returns" amid a throng of weeping friends and relations. 

A very solemn feeling and appropriate address was delivered by the Rev. R. Heyland, founded on Numbers 23d Chap. 10th verse, "Let me die the death of the righteous and let my last end be like his."

Your's Respectfully &c .  J. ROSE

In the year 1878, she was united in marriage to Mr. George Clapper, of Morven. During her life she endeared herself of a large circle of friends. Those who knew her best were her best friends. She was a Christian woman. Her pure life, her faithful use of the means of grace both public and private, her simple trust, her humble and teachable spirit, and her cheerfulness and willingness to help in every good word and work developed in her a beautiful character. She was a member of the Methodist church, and an officer in the W.M.S. auxillary of Morven. She will be greatly missed by the community, and also by her mother and six sisters, but she will be chiefly missed by her husband. Earth has met with a loss and Heaven has no doubt received her to its home. We extend to the sorrowing friends our heartfelt sympathy and prayers. Her body was laid to rest in the Morven cemetery to await the resurrection of the just.

He was a great friend of the family and always called her "little Jane." Later her mother came and married Darius Gilbert, their home being occupied now by a cousin, T.F. Gibbs, Adolphustown. At that home fifty years ago last June she married William T. Clark, son of the late James Clark, the ceremony being performed by Rev. J.H. Starr. Last June being the fiftieth anniversary, the children had a small celebration. She was the mother of seven children, the eldest, James E., in Winnipeg Man.; Frank W., Melita, Man., Arthur R. and George H. on the homestead and farm adjoining, and Helen M. at home. A little girl, Hattie May, died some years ago.

During the pastorate of the Rev. Wm. Bryers, on the Bath circuit, 57 years ago, both she and her husband yielded their lives in consecration to Christ and joined the Methodist church, worshipping first in the old Hay Bay church, afterwards in the U.E.L. church at Dorland, where she remained a member until death. Her husband is a steward in the same church yet.

In the home she was a devoted wife and fond mother. As long as health permitted she attended the public services of the church, but when failing health came she bore the affliction patiently, and awaited the coming of the Lord. On January 6th, she was not for her Lord had taken her. The funeral service was held at her home on January 8th, by her pastor, Rev. J.W. Bunner. When the summons came she heard it gladly, and spoke of the dear ones gone before, as she had so few of her relatives besides her own family, only three nephews, Dr. E.W. Wright, Brooklyn, N.Y.; Dr. G.F. Wright, Madoc, Ont., and Dr. M. Wright, of New York, their mother being her only sister, who died twenty-two years ago.

Obituary - J. Herbert Clark, M.D., D.D.S. - The many friends of Dr. Clark will be sorry to hear of his death, which sad event occurred at the homestead, Adolphustown, on Friday, March 25th. Deceased had a paralytic stroke eighteen months ago, when he was obliged to retire from business, though comparatively comfortable in health until two months ago, when his loved ones saw they must prepare for the worst. Dr. Clark graduated in medicine in '75, and three years subsequently in dentistry. Choosing the latter profession he opened an office in Kingston, where he has since continued a successful business career, winning hosts of friends by his kind and gentlemanly bearing. He failed very gradually until two weeks before his death, when he had a second stroke, after which the change was more marked. Throughout his illness he was almost absolutely free from pain though latterly suffering somewhat from shortness of breath, owing to enlargement of the heart, yet he never complained or murmured. He was conscious to the last and gave the comforting assurance that the Saviour he had lately learned to love was precious to the end.

Clark, a well known Kingston dentist, who died of consumption at the old homestead on the 25th of March, last year; Mrs. Alex. Hazlett, of Fredericksburgh, who died suddenly during the winter, and now their brother John. Their father, the late James Clark, was for years one of the most respected residents of the township.

Clark – At his home on King street, on Sunday, March 28, 1909, Captain Paul Clark aged seventy-six years. Funeral under the direction of the Masonic Order and burial at Cherry Valley cemetery on Tuesday.

 

A navigator with forty years experience with sail and steamboat on lake, river and bay, and widely known in inland waters of Eastern Ontario, passed away at an early hour on Sunday morning at his home on King street, when death claimed Captain Paul Clark.  Captain Clark has been in declining health for a few years past, but more particularly during the last year, when he failed greatly in health.  Heart trouble was the immediate cause of death.  It could be safely said that Captain Clark’s face would be known in every port, in this part of the province.  He had been a mariner for more than forty years, first sailing on schooners, and a little later being master of his own craft. He first owned the schooner Ocean Wave;  then the schooner J. W. Langmuir, and afterwards the Kate, of Oakville.  Selling this latter vessel he retired for awhile to his farm at Cherry Valley.   But he soon gave up farming, acquired the steamer C.H. Merritt and helped make her the popular excursion boat she was. About nine years ago, however, he gave up sailing and retired. Captain Clark was born in Marysburgh seventy-six years ago.  Today would have been the anniversary of his birth.  He was one of a family of twelve children.  In his early manhood he went to California, and engaged in mining operations.  After a few years he returned East and continued his career, which he had begun before going west as a mariner.  Later, a second time, he journeyed west, to California and Oregon. The deceased was a member of the Church of England, a Conservative in politics and a Royal Arch Mason.  He was twice married, his first wife being Miss Elizabeth Welbanks of Marysburgh, and his second wife, Mrs. Corkindale, who survives him.  The surviving family beside the widow, are three sons, Frank, in Brighton;  Palen, in Stouten, Sask., and David, of Picton.  There also five sisters, Mrs. James Walmsley, Picton;  Mrs. William Walmsley, Picton;  Mrs. L. Nethery, Hillier, Mrs. P. Hawley, South Bay;  Mrs. C. Church, Picton; and two brothers, Mr. Palen Clark, Portland, Oregon and A. Clark, South Bay.  The funeral of the deceased will be held this afternoon;  service at the King street residence at two o’clock, under the direction of the Masonic order. Thence the remains will be taken to Cherry Valley cemetery for burial.

Obituary - Peregrene M. Clark, Esq.

In the death of Peregrene Maitland Clark, Esq., which occurred at Mill Haven on the 10th inst., the township of Ernesttown has lost an old and well known resident. He was born in that township eighty two years ago, and spent all his days, we believe, in his native place.

He was of U.E. Loyalist stock. His grandfather Robert Clark, was in the active ranks of the Loyalist Army during the war of the American rebellion. He was one of the earliest of the Loyalist refugees in this Province and built the first grist mills erected in the province, for the Government. These were at Kingston Mills - built in 1784-5 - and Napanee - built in 1786-7. He was also one of the earliest magistrates in the Midland District. His old account book in connection with the building of the mill here, and the old records of the Magistrates sittings, of which he was a member, were held until a couple of years ago by the late P.M. Clark and are now in the possession of the Government at Toronto. The father of the deceased, the late Col. John Collins Clark, was also a prominent resident of Ernesttown, - one of its earliest school teachers, a magistrate and an officer in the Militia. If we remember right he first nominated Sir Richard Cartwright as a candidate to represent this County. The late Peregrene Maitland Clark was also an officer in the Militia and had in his possession at the time of his death, - handed down to him by his father - a sword taken from an American officer by a British officer at the memorable battle of Lundy's Lane. He also had a number of relics and documents of a good deal of historic interest. Mr. Lewis Clark, turnkey of the gaol here is a brother of the deceased. His wife and several children survive him.

The late Samuel D. Clark J.P.

He Was a Native of the Township in Which He Died

Mr. Clark, Odessa, who died today (Friday), was a native of Ernesttown and has resided in the township all his life. He was born on his father's farm, near Odessa, seventy years ago, and lived on the homestead until a dozen years ago, when he moved to Odessa, where he resided since. He was a man of liberal education, extensive reading and of much more than ordinary intelligence - an excellent type of the intelligent yeomanry of his native county. He was of good U.E. Loyalist stock. His great grandfather Robert Clark, was one of the first of the U.E.L. refugees who arrived at Kingston, after having done loyal service in the British ranks during the American revolution. During that time  he got necessarily separated from his wife and family and it was several years before they again met. He was the government carpenter who built the first government grist mills in this province - the first at Kingston Mills in 1784 and at Napanee Mills in 1785.  He then settled on the bay shore in Ernesttown, where some of his descendants yet reside. His grandfather, Matthew Clark, was also a prominent Justice of the peace and colonel of the militia among the early settlers.

The deceased was several years superintendent of schools in Ernesttown, and a well known Methodist local preacher. He was also an active temperance worker and a justice of the peace. No doubt he well improved his abilities and opportunities in the cause of God and humanity. He had been suffering sickness from the commencement of this year, and for months past it was evident that his case was beyond human aid; but he viewed his end with a calm and christian resignation, having well served his generation, his church and his God.

He married Miss Mary Day, many years ago, who survives him, with their son, Dr. C. Day Clark, now assistant supreme physician I.O. Foresters at Toronto and Mrs. T. M. Caton, Ernesttown.

FORMER NAPANEE RESIDENT DIED – DON CLARKE PASSED AWAY IN KINGSTON

Napanee, May 14 – Word was received in town yesterday morning conveying the sad news of the death of Mr. Don Clarke of Kingston, formerly of Napanee. 

Last Tuesday he was taken suddenly ill while at his work and he was rushed to the Kingston General Hospital.  He was at the hospital for a few days only and it was decided to take him home, his residence being on Princess street. His condition from the first did not improve to any extent and grave fears were entertained for his recovery. 

“Don,” as he was familiarly known to every one, was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Luther Clarke, and was only 38 years of age.  Prior to going to Kingston he was in the garage business in Napanee and followed the same pursuit in Kingston. He was extremely popular with every one and the sympathy of the community is extended to his bereaved widow, his parents, and two sisters, Mrs. Frank Clarke, south Napanee and Mrs. Gordon Parks, Hawley.

The Late Mrs. Frank Clarke

The citizens of the Bethany district in North Fredericksburgh and many other friends, were shocked last week at the sudden untimely death of Mrs. Frank Clarke, who passed away at the Kingston General Hospital on Wednesday, March 15th, following an operation.  Mrs. Clarke had been taking treatment in the hospital for a short time before an operation was performed, which it had been hoped would have restored her to health, but failed to rally after the shock of the operation.

She was a resident, all of her life, of the Bethany district, where she was born about 44 years ago, and was Helen Marie Miller, the daughter of the late William Miller and Mrs. Miller.  She attended the local school and Napanee Collegiate and some years ago married Frank Clarke of Bethany. She was an active worker in Bethany United Church being a member of the W. M. S. W. A., and Sunday School and choir.

Besides her husband, she is survived by four children, Harry, Carl, Jean and Elizabeth, and her mother, Mrs. W. R. Miller;  two brothers, James, in North Fredericksburgh, Harry in Oshawa, and one sister, Mrs. Whonhart, in Syracuse, N.Y.

Her funeral was conducted last Friday afternoon by Rev. A. C. McCallum of the Bay circuit.  A short service, was held at the house, and later there was a public service in Bethany United church, where Mr. McCallum preached a sermon from the text:  “Now we see through the glass darkly.”  Interment followed the service at Bethany Cemetery.

OBITUARY - Mr. J. J. Clarke

The death occurred on Saturday, September 26th, 1925, at his late residence, of one of Napanee’s well known and highly respected citizens, in the person of Mr. J. J. Clarke, at the age of 80 years, 9 months and 18 days.  The deceased suffered a severe stroke about two weeks ago, and owing to his advanced age little hope was held out for his recovery.  The late Mr. Clarke, who was well known to a host of Napaneeans, spent the major part of his life in the Township of North Fredericksburgh, he having been a prosperous farmer near Hay Bay.  Some few years ago he retired from the activities of the farm, and with his devoted wife, daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Sam Baird, moved to Napanee, where they have since resided.  During their residence here they made many warm friends, and the sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved widow and daughter.

The funeral was held at his late residence, Bridge Street, Monday afternoon, and was one of the largest held in Napanee in some time.  Not only was there a large concourse of citizens from town in attendance, but many were present from all parts of the Township of North Fredericksburgh, where the deceased had spent the major part of his life, and where he was highly honoured and respected.  The casket was banked with floral designs of all kinds, showing the esteem in which he was held.

The service was conducted by Rev. A. J. Terrill, of Grace Church, of which the deceased was a member, and who in an appropriate address referred to the many fine personal qualities which the deceased possessed and also to the high respect in which he was held by the whole community.  At the conclusion of the service the remains were borne to Riverside cemetery and laid to rest, to await the glad resurrection day.  The pall-bearers were all close friends, being Messrs.  Fred Gordinier, D. H. Preston, John Hambly, Luke Trumpour, F. L. Hooper and George Grieve.

Obituary - The Late S.J. Close

In the passing of Mr. Sam. Close another of the few links between the present life of the district and the pioneer days is severed. Mr. Close was the son of Mr. Hugh Close, who came to America in 1830 and settled in Baltimore, where he owned a large and prosperous blacksmith shop in the days when horses were more plentiful than they are now.

From Baltimore he visited friends on the Bay Front, near what is now Conway, and was persuaded to remain. When he married he moved to North Fredericksburgh, taking up land, which has ever since remained in the family. The late Sam. Close was the only surviving son, and had lived all his life on the homestead, having helped to clear the original bush and trees, and living long enough to see it one of the best farms in the district.

The four brothers have all predeceased him, and there are left to mourn his loss his four sisters, Miss Catharine Close, who lived on the farm with him; Mrs. John Curle, Mrs. Louise Curle, of Fredericksburgh, and Mrs. Julia Edgett, of Waterloo, N.Y.  A niece, Miss Fannie Close, also lived at the homestead with him.

The funeral was held on Monday from this late home, the Rev. A.J. Wilson, of St. Andrew's Church, officiating. The elders of the church acted as pall-bearers, Mr. Close having been a member of the session for many years.

The very large attendance at the funeral of people from all over the surrounding country-side, testified to the high esteem in which Mr. Close was held by all who knew him.

North Fredericksburgh loses a valued citizen; those who survive, a devoted brother and friend, and St. Andrew's Church, a loyal and consistent elder.

Obituary - Thomas Close

In Shannonville, on the 1st of June, Mr. Tom Close, who for the last three months had not enjoyed the best of health, passed suddenly away. Mr. Close was a son of the late Mr. Hugh Close, of Fredericksburgh, and as a young man he worked the farm on the land known as the Close's mill property. But about twenty years ago, when the rush to the west was at its height, he moved to Carman, Man., where he took up farming. From a youth he had suffered with one of his knees, the ligaments of which had been strained as a boy, and as he grew older he found the work on the farm increasingly difficult, until he was forced to retire. He entered business in Carman, but still retained his farm, which he had worked for him. About six years ago Mr. close returned to the east to settle for the remainder of his life in Napanee, but feeling a life of idleness a burden he accepted an opportunity to enter business again in Shannonville, and it was here that he remained until taken by death.

In his passing, Mr. Close leaves a host of friends and acquaintances in and around Napanee, and in the west, who will for long remember his fine manly qualities and his happy genial nature. Able always to meet even a difficult and embarrassing situation with a smile and in a philosophic manner, his attitude to life infected others to their own good.

There survive him his wife, formerly miss Wilson, of Shannonville; Mrs. J. Curle and Mrs. Louise Curle, of Fredericksburgh; Mrs. Julia Edgett, of Waterloo, N.Y.; Miss Catharine and Mr. Sam. Close, who live on the homestead at Fredericksburgh.

Mr. Close was a member of St. Andrew's Presbyterian church, Napanee. His connection with that church reaches back to the time when as a boy he drove the ox team that prepared the foundations and helped to draw the stones from the quarries.

The funeral service was held in his late home, at which Rev. Wood, of Melrose, presided, assisted by Rev. Topping, of Shannonville, and Rev. A. J. Wilson, of Napanee. Interment was made in the family plot at Riverside cemetery.

DAVID A. CLUTE - One of the oldest and most respected residents of South Fredericksburgh, passed suddenly away at his home at Sillsville, early on the sixth of March. Deceased had been in poor health for some time past, but retired the night before as well as usual, after conducting evening worship with his family. He was born in 1823, on the old Clute homestead, on the Bay of Quinte shore, near No. 17 and was a son of Col. Clute, and grandson of Col. Thompson, also a nephew of Sir John Johnston, of Kingston. He lived all his life in the township, and is the last of the old Clute family except one brother in Western Ontario. He was a staunch Conservative, taking an active part always as he was councillor for eleven years and treasurer for a few years for the township. About 38 years ago he was married to Eva Eliza daughter of Hiram Smith, of the same place, who survives him. They were blessed with eight children, five girls and three boys, all of whom are living except one girl, Mabel, who died when quite young. The children are Mrs. Jonas Garrison of Parma; Mrs. T.A. Choate, of Woodville; John A. of Thorpe; Hiram, of Assiniboia N.Y.; Stewart L. of Sunbury and two daughters, Ethel and Eva at home. He was a Presbyterian in faith, and for some time previous had said that all was well with him, and seemed exceptionally bright, and his mind was as firm as it was for years though he was the ripe age of 82 years and 9 months. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. W. Boyce, B.A, B.D. of Conway, on Thursday 8th March, at Sillsville church, and were largely attended. The remains were taken to Napanee and placed in the Eastern vault to await interment, when the burial will take place in the old family plot in the McDowall Presbyterian cemetery at Sandhurst. The bereaved widow and family have the sympathy of the entire community in their affliction.

CLUTE – At Morven, on Sunday March 12th, 1916, Frances G. Funnell, beloved wife of J.A. Clute, aged 39 years and 10 months.

 

OBITUARY – It is with profound sorrow that we record the sudden and unexpected death of Mrs. John Clute, of the Township of Ernesttown, and the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. H. Funnell, formerly of Morven Ont.  The whole community was shocked when it was reported that Mrs. Clute had passed away on Sunday morning, March 12th, 1916, at the age of 38 years, leaving to mourn her loss a loving husband, two small children, a widowed mother, two brothers and a sister, to whom we convey our deepest sympathy in this their hour of sore bereavement.  The funeral was conducted on Tuesday, March 14th, the memorial service being held in the White Church, and was conducted by Rev. W.T. Wickett, a friend of the deceased, assisted by Revds. R. Allin and W.S.P. Boyce, B.D., a large audience being present to pay their last tribute of respect to one of the most highly respected members of the community.  Mrs. Clute was a consistent Christian and for years a member of the Methodist Church, the interests of which she cheerfully served, as she was able and in her own home she was a devoted wife, and a kind and loving mother, and while we mourn we do not as those who have no hope, for knowing the deceased as we did, we believe our loss is Mrs. Clute’s infinite gain.  “She has gone to be with Christ, which is far better”.  The remains were placed in the vault at Morven, and in the spring will be interred in the family plot, to await the resurrection of the Just.

MARGARET AND MAGDALENE CLUTE - (**written in February 1901**) Two very old and highly respected sisters, natives of South Fredericksburgh, where much of their active days was spent, died within four days of each other, on the 14th and 18th inst., aged respectively 82 and 92 years. They were among the last surviving connecting links of the pioneers of his county and the present generation. They were daughters of Major John G. Clute, one of the UE loyalists who came to this county with the original loyalist pioneers. Their mother was a stepdaughter of Ensign Timothy Thompson, MPP, who represented this county in the old Upper Canada Legislature for twelve years. They were grand-daughters of Sir John Johnson whose name was so prominent among the early founders of this province. Their father, John G. Clute, settled on a farm on the front of "Third Town", nearly opposite the Upper Gap, where his daughters were born and reared. They both were well acquainted with and were personal friends of the Rev. Robert McDowall, the pioneer Presbyterian missionary of this county, and were members of the congregation and church he founded at Sandhurst. Both have now their last resting place in the burying ground of that historic old McDowall memorial church, beside their relatives of three generations and near beside the McDowall family. Both of them saw the building of that church, and assisted, in some capacity, in the work, and both retained to the last excellent memories of the foundation of the church and of its early members. Miss Margaret never married and spent nearly all her active days in her native county. She died on Thursday, 14th inst., at the residence of her brother, Mr. David Clute, near Sillsville, and the funeral took place at the old Memorial Church on Saturday, 16th. She died of old age. Magdalene Clute married Nicholas Murdoch, also a native of the township and of UEL descent, in 1833, and nearly thirty years of their married life, was spent in South Fredericksburgh.

There, their ten children were all born, we believe, of whom seven still survive. Mr. Murdoch, died at Newburgh nearly thirty years ago and lies buried near the McDowall family plot at Sandhurst. Mrs. Murdoch's burial took place there on Wednesday, 20th, beside her kin. She had a most wonderful and retentive memory up to the last and could give more interesting and correct personal reminiscences of her personal recollections of events that happened in this county eighty or more years ago than any person we have ever met. She remembered seeing the American war fleet pass through the Upper Gap on its way to Kingston and down the St. Lawrence during the American war of 1812-15. It passed directly in front of her father's home. She remembered too, seeing, when a child, the burning of the first St. Paul's church at Sandhurst, said by Rev. John Langhorn to have been the first Church of England "built from the ground for that purpose," in Upper Canada, save the Indian church at Brantford. Her personal recollections of most of the prominent early pioneers were of great interest. She was a great reader and a woman of much intelligence and experience. She assisted the other members in church when it was built and her husband built and presented the pulpit, which is still used and is a good specimen of joiner's skill. She died at the residence of her daughter, Mr. H.W. Casey, Kingston, with whom she made it her home for years, and from whom she received every care and attention.

DIED - On Friday the 5th of August, at his residence in Adolphustown, Mr. Daniel Cole, at the very advanced age of 105 years, 1 month and 12 days.  He was a native of Long Island N.Y., and the oldest settler in this township;  he was respected and beloved by all who knew him - having long performed his duty as a loyal subject, a faithful friend, a kind husband, an indulgent parent, and an obliging neighbor.  Born in the 5th year of the reign of George the 2d, he lived under 4 Sovereigns, and saw many changes both in the land of his birth, and this of his adoption.  He has beheld the horrors of war, and has tasted of the blessings of peace;  he has seen that which was once a wilderness, “blossom and flourish like the Rose,”  where formerly was nothing to be seen but the dark shadow of the lofty pine, oak and maple, here and there broken by the thin blue vapor curling above the Indian Wigwam;  he has seen comfortable dwellings arise;  out of the superabundance of nature man has supplied his necessities.  Beneath the untiring efforts of human industry, the dark woods have disappeared and waving fields of grain have taken their place.  Where once was seen nought but the light birch bark canoe of the “son of the forest,” he has beheld the stately Steam Boats sweep majestically along, - where formerly resounded the savage howl of the Panther, the Wolf and Bear, he has seen towns and villages spring up as if by magic;  in fact the very face of the country seems changed since he first sat down upwards of 52 years ago, as a settler on the place where he died.

But after all he saw, he too is gone, his venerable age could not save him, for we are told “the old must die”  - The friends of his early days were all gone before him;  he was becoming “a stranger among men.”  generations had arisen and passed away, still he remained like a patriarch of old, unbroken by the weight of years.  After witnessing the 5th generation he died universally lamented by all his acquaintances, leaving behind him, 8 children, 75 grandchildren, 172 great-grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren’s children; in all 268 descendants.

Death of a Venerable Lady -

Mrs. Maria Conger, of Picton, born on April 4th 1799, died on Friday last. She was one of the few living witnesses of the terrible scene that took place on Hay Bay, Aug. 20th, 1819. At that time a camp meeting was being held, and on Sunday the entire occupants of the boats while crossing were precipitated into the water. Two young men and eight young women were drowned. In 1822 she was married to John D. Conger. the ceremony was performed by the late Stephen Conger, father of the present Roger B. Conger, ex-M.P. who still maintains a tolerably vigorous old age. There were born to them six daughters and four sons - two of the latter being S.M. Conger and J.W. Conger, editors of the Picton Gazette. The funeral took place on Sunday last from the residence of her son, J.W. Conger.

The active and eventful period of her life was passed at the old homestead, in the vicinity of Hallowell Mills, and near to the old historic building generally called Conger's Church. Here the great meetings in connection with pioneer Methodism were held, and her some of the brightest and most glowing experiences of her religious life occurred. The old place of worship still stands in its picturesque simplicity - its antique and massive timbers still intact - a striking memorial of the sturdy and invincible faith of the man who laid its foundations nearly a century ago.

OBITUARY – The remains of Russel Cooper, son of Harry Cooper, Conway, who was drowned in the Bay of Quinte on December 6th, 1912  were found March 29th, and a large number of sorrowing friends and relatives gathered at the home on Monday to pay a last tribute to a comrade and friend.  The service was conducted by Canon Roberts who preached a powerful and instructive sermon.  Russel was Anglican in religion and was the first to be baptised in the new font at Adolphustown, in 1890. He was twenty-two years of age, young and stalwart, and was well liked by all who knew him.  He has been missed and will continue so, with those who knew and understood the true character that was always staunch when tested.  The sympathy of the community goes out to the family, yet in a time like this, words is no healing. May the God of all grace help them to look beyond this vale of tears and help them to believe that even as God has so ordained these temporary separations will end in an eternal blessing, when friend meets friend to part, no more.  He is survived by loving parents, five sisters, Mrs. Geo. Bongard, Mildred, Annie and Ruth, of the N.C.I., and Eleanor at home;  also one brother, Edward.  The remains were interred in the family plot at Adolphustown to await the resurrection morn.

ELIZABETH GREENAWAY COWAN -  Died in the township of Euphrasia, June 12th, 1885, Elizabeth Greenaway, wife of Hamilton Cowan, in the 81st year of her age.  Mother Cowan was born in the county of Armagh, Ireland, in April, 1805;  emigrated with her family to Upper Canada in 1836, and after a short stay at Little York they settled in the township of Tevumseh.  After having seen their children grown up and settled in homes of their own, and having secured a competence of earthly substance, about fourteen years ago the aged couple moved to a home on the farm and near the residence of their son-in-law, Mr. John Conn, where they lived until death separated them on the shores of time.  Mother Cowan was converted in early youth, through the reading of a tract given her by a Presbyterian minister, and  joined the Presbyterian Church.  After moving to Tecumseh she still continued to attend that church, but as she had suffered from lameness for forty years, which increased with age, she had not been able to go to the house of God for some time previous to her death, but she spent much of her time in reading the Word of God, other good books, and in prayer and meditation.  Of the genuineness of her conversion no one who conversed with her on the subject could have a doubt.  I have visited her frequently during the past Conference year.  She often expressed her gratitude for those visits, but I felt that I was receiving the greater benefit.  “The chamber where the good man meets his fate is favored above the common walks of life, and is indeed close by the verge of heaven.”  Her death was peaceful and triumphant.  Seven children survive her, all of whom, with one exception, are members of the Methodist Church;  quite a number of her grandchildren are faithful members of the same Church.  On Sabbath, June 15th, we laid her mortal remains in the Thornbury cemetery, to await the resurrection of the just.  May God bless her aged companion, and prepare him for the reunion beyond the tide.  [signed] G.

REV. W. D. CRAIG, B.A. DIES SUDDENLY AT SHANNONVILLE

United Church Pastor at Roblin for 4 Years -

The death of Rev. W. D. Craig, Minister of the United Church of Canada, at Shannonville, occurred very suddenly and unexpectedly at his home on Monday afternoon of this week, at about four o’clock.  His funeral is being held at Shannonville United Church to-day (Wednesday) at 10 a.m.  It is in charge of the Chairman of the Belleville Presbytery, Rev. H. B. Herrington, and Rev. Dr. R. T. Richards of Napanee will give the address.

Mr. Craig was apparently in his usual good health and his death came as a great shock to his family and friends.  On Sunday he conducted his usual church services and during the morning on Monday he washed his car, mowed the lawn around his home and did other work.  Shortly after dinner he went to lie down for a little rest and when his wife called him at 3.30 p.m., he could not be aroused.  A doctor was called immediately, but Mr. Craig passed away within about half an hour.  It is thought that death was caused by a blood clot striking the brain.

Previous to going to Shannonville two years ago, Mr. Craig was stationed at Roblin for four years, and before that was on the Chalk River circuit.  He was born near Ottawa, about 44 years ago and saw service with the Canadian Expeditionary Force, overseas.  On his return he attended Queen’s University from which he graduated with the Bachelor of Arts degree.  In 1934 he married Isobel Rammage of Morrisburg, who survives, together with their year-old adopted daughter.

Mr. Craig was chaplain of the Napanee Branch of the Canadian Legion of the British Empire Service League, and was well known in Napanee.  During his four years pastorate at Roblin he made many friends who were shocked at his sudden death.

He was a member of the Masonic Order and of Napanee Lodge No. 86 I.O.O.F.  His chief interest outside of his business was in the Napanee Board of Education, of which he had been a member for several years and was chairman for one year.  At the time of his death he was chairman of the Finance and Management Committees of the Board of Education.  On Friday night last he attended a special meeting of the School Board and on Sunday morning attended Trinity Church of which he was a trustee and a member of the Official Board.

Mr. Creighton was a devoted husband and father, and leaves to mourn his loss his wife, formerly Ila Allison, and four children, Miss Helen Creighton, a student at Queen’s University, Kingston, and three sons, Gerald, Donald and Clifford, at home.  He also leaves one sister, Miss Marguerite Creighton, Reg.

DEATHS – CREIGHTON – At Napanee, on Friday, October 13th, 1933, Henry Creighton, in his 70th year.

 

HENRY CREIGHTON – The sudden death, early Friday morning, of Mr. Henry Creighton, one of Napanee’s most highly esteemed citizens, came as a decided shock to his many friends in town and district.

Mr. Creighton, had, apparently, been in his usual good health until a short time before his passing.  The day before he had done considerable work in his garden, and the morning of his death, had breakfasted as usual and done his morning work about the barn.  About nine o’clock he went to the house, where he complained of not feeling well and suddenly collapsed.  Death, attributed to heart failure, followed very shortly after the seizure.

Mr. Creighton was a man well known and held in high regard by a large circle of friends throughout the county.  Since 1911 he had been a resident of Napanee and had acted in the capacity of agent for the Lennox and Addington Mutual Fire Insurance Company.  Previous to that time, he had been a successful farmer of the Hawley district.  He was a man of great integrity, of a kindly, generous disposition, ad of a naturally optimistic outlook.  Outside of his business and his home, his chief interest was in Trinity United Church.  He had been a valued member of the board since becoming a member of the church and for some years a member of the session.  He served on several committees and was a church usher.  In everything that tended for the advancement of the church he dearly loved, he was deeply interested and gave liberally of his time and resources.  His passing is a great loss to his family, his friends and his church.

Mrs. Creighton was born nearly seventy years ago, in South Fredericksburgh in the Hawley district.  He was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. T. D. Creighton, one of a family of six children.  The death of his wife, formerly Etta Huffman, about three years ago, was a severe blow to Mr. Creighton and his family.  He is survived by one daughter, Miss Marguerite, a nurse in Memphis, Tennessee;  one son, Mr. C. B. Creighton, of Napanee;  a sister, Mrs. Charles Asselstine, of Hawley and one brother, Mr. Arthur Creighton, of Oshawa, besides his aged father-in-law, Mr. Cyrus Huffman.

The funeral, which was largely attended, was held at Trinity United Church, Monday afternoon, with the minister, Rev. Harry Pawson, in charge, assisted by Rev. A. J. Wilson, of St. Andrew’s Church.  Interment was made at Riverside Cemetery.

 

OBITUARY – HENRY CREIGHTON – The residents of Napanee were shocked to learn of the sudden death of Mr. Henry Creighton, which occurred at his home, Newburgh Road, on Friday morning, and in his passing the town has lost one of its most cultured gentlemen and highly esteemed citizens, and Trinity United Church one of its most prominent members of the official board.

As far as can be learned, Mr. Creighton had not been complaining, and on Thursday he was down town as usual.  After arising Friday morning he attended to the usual work and on returning to the house became ill, passing away shortly after.

The deceased was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Creighton and was a native of South Fredericksburgh.  For many years he was a successful farmer and his farm was situated near Hawley.  Retiring from the farm, Mr. and Mrs. Creighton came to Napanee twenty-two years ago, and this had been their home ever since.  While at Hawley he took an active interest in church work and was a member of the official board of the United Church.  On coming to Napanee, Mr. and Mrs. Creighton affiliated with Trinity United Church.  Three years ago Mr. Creighton suffered a sore bereavement in the death of Mrs. Creighton, who before her marriage was Miss Huffman.  Mr. Creighton was a member of the official board of Trinity Church and  took an active part in Sunday school work and was much interested in temperance.

A son, C. B. Creighton, who is a member of the Daly Tea staff, resides in Napanee, and a daughter, Marguerite, is a nurse in Memphis, Tenn., and last week attended a convention at Nashville, Tenn.  Just a few weeks ago Mr. Creighton, accompanied by his son and Mrs. Creighton and his daughter, paid a visit to the Century of Progress Exposition at Chicago.

His brothers, who passed away some years ago, were prominent residents of this county.  They were Fred Creighton and J. C. Creighton, Ex-Reeve of South Fredericksburgh.  One brother, Arthur, resides in Oshawa, and a sister, Mrs. Chas. Asselstine, resides in Hawley.  There are also two grandchildren, Helen and Gerald Creighton, children of Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Creighton.

Simplicity marked the funeral, which took place on Monday afternoon from his late residence, Newburgh Road, to Trinity United Church, of which church he had been a devout member since coming to Napanee over twenty years ago.  The esteem in which the deceased was held was evidence by the large concourse of sympathizing friends, the auditorium of the church being well filled.  The casket was banked with flowers, while many of the floral tributes were not brought into the church.

The service was conducted by his minister, Rev. Harry Pawson, who was assisted by Rev. A. J. Wilson of St. Andrew’s United Church, the latter making a very appropriate prayer.  Mr. Pawson in his well deserved tribute, referred to the irreparable loss sustained by the family and relatives, the loss to the friends and the loss to Trinity.  “This church has lost several members during the past few years,” said Mr. Pawson, “and there was no loss which the church felt more keenly than the death of Mr. Creighton.  He lived a simple life, was sincere and conscientious and was a true Christian.”

Prof. W. R. Gray presided at the organ, and the two hymns, “Jesus Lover of My Soul” and “Abide With Me” which were sung at the funeral of the late Mrs. Creighton three years ago, were sung.  Mrs. Pawson contributed the solo, “Under the Shadow of Thy Wings.”

The Pall-bearers were J. E. Robinson, Fred H. Henderson, Sheriff Chas. W. Vandervoort, D. B. Wilson, M. R. Reid, I.P.S., and W. R. Lott.  Interment took place in Riverside Cemetery.

E. J. Cummings Dead;  Well-known in Business – Mr. E. J. Cummings, widely known in the business world of Toronto, died yesterday at his home, 27 Dalton road.   He had been ill about a year, and consulted many  specialists, who finally diagnosed his illness as liver trouble. Mr. Cummings, who was born and educated in Kingston, came to Toronto about  twenty-five years ago, and was connected with the Dineen Fur Company.  He later became head of the fur business of Cummings & Sellers, the Sellers-Gough company of today, from which he retired about fifteen years ago, and had since been interested in the Betty Brown Candy Company. Mr. Cummings, though a man of rather shy and retiring disposition had many warm personal friends and a wide circle of acquaintances in business circles.  His wife died with tragic suddenness last January.  He is survived by one brother, M. J., of Vancouver and one daughter, Mrs. Albert Heck of this city.  The funeral will be held on Tuesday morning at 10 o’clock, with mass at St. Peter’s Church .

Child Scalded - George Stanley, infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Cummings, Chambers, met with a sad death this week. The child was a year and four months old on Monday, and tripped and sat down backwards into a pail of boiling water which his mother had placed on the floor The little fellow was badly scalded, and died next day, more, however, from the shock than the scalding. Mr. and Mrs. Chambers have surely been afflicted. Seven months ago their daughter, a bright young girl of thirteen years, died, and two years before a son of seven years died from appendicitis. The bereaved parents have universal sympathy.

He was a member of the Eastern Methodist church, a liberal in politics, and highly esteemed by all who knew him. Deceased was for years a member of Napanee Troop of Cavalry and went to the front during the Fenian Raid of 1866. Besides his bereaved widow he leaves two sons, Edward H. Curlette, of New York City and Adelbert, residing at home. The funeral service was held at his home on Tuesday and the remains placed in the Eastern vault.

Yesterday evening, George Curry, steward of the steamer Kingston and formerly a bandsman in the 79th Regiment, was drowned from on board the steamer while opposite the Rev. Mr. McDowall's house near Fredericksburgh, about 8 miles above Bath.

 

Melancholy Fatality.  -- Yesterday evening as the Kingston steamer was on her way downwards, and when opposite to the Rev. Mr. McDowall’s house, near Fredericksburg, about 8 miles above Bath, Mr. George Curry, the Steward of the Kingston, lost his life under the following distressing circumstances.  A boy having asked for a drink of water, Curry, to whom the request was addressed, proceeded to draw a bucket of water.  The boat was going at full speed and the bar of the gangway not being properly secured, the sudden jerk which the bucket received when “brought up” by the sudden tension of the rope to which it was attached, caused the barrier to give way, and Curry was instantly precipitated  over the side.  He clutched at the side of the boat, but not being able to procure a sufficient hold, he threw himself off as far as possible in order to avoid the wheels.  The steam was immediately let off, but before the boat could be stopped she was nearly half a mile from Curry, who was swimming in the wake of the vessel.  A small boat was immediately got out, and rowed by two men soon reached the drowning man, - he was sinking as they reached him.  An oar was shoved out by one of the men - he made a feeble effort to lay hold of it - his hand slipped over the end of the oar and he sank into eternity.  The deceased was a fine industrious young man, he formerly had been a bandsman in the 79th Regt. and the deepest regret for his untimely fate is manifested by all who knew him.
