Hagerman,

Abraham

 

The death of Abe Hagerman, who passed away at the Belleville General Hospital on Saturday, October 31st, has occasioned deep regret among those who knew him.  Mr. Hagerman was seriously injured at the Trenton Airport when he was hit by flying debris caused by the cyclone and he received severe injuries to the head.

The late Mr. Hagerman was born at Bath, the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Hagerman who reside on a farm which was deeded to them from the Government.  Going to Oshawa, 13 years ago, Mr. Hagerman was employed on the trim and hardware line of General Motors.  While there he was a member of Cedardale United Church and a member of the choir.  He was also a member of the Independent Order of Forresters and of the Orange Order.  He had a host of friends and a number of relatives in and around the city.  Mr. and Mrs. Hagerman and son Roy moved to Trenton a year ago and he had been employed at the airport ever since.  He was a member of Bayside Church, Trenton and a member of the choir there.  Mrs. Hagerman was at the church the Thursday afternoon when she received word of her husband’s accident.

Besides the bereaved wife, who was formerly Miss Jennie Pinney, daughter of Mrs. Ross Pinney and the late William Pinney, Sharps Corners, he leaves to mourn his loss, one son, Roy;  his parents;  five brothers, Edward of Toronto, Leonard of Oshawa, Alexander, Mountain Grove, John, Bath, Borden, Bath;  two sisters, Mrs. Pearl Kitchen, Huntsville, Lorraine, Bath.

The funeral was held from the family residence, 1st Concession, Sidney Township on Tuesday, November 3rd with service at the house at 1 p.m. to Selby United church for service at 3 p.m.  Rev. James Plant of Bayside assisted by Dr. Smith conducted the service and the choir from Bayside contributed a couple of anthems.  Rev. M. Plant delivered a very comforting message from the text “Blessed is that servant whom, when his Lord cometh, shall find watching,”  and paid a high tribute to the life and character of the deceased.  He also read letters of sympathy received by the family from former pastors, Rev. Mr. McDermid of Cedardale Church, Oshawa, and Rev. T. H. P. Anderson.

At the conclusion of the service, which was one of the largest in the point of attendance held in the church for a number of years, the funeral cortege motored to the cemetery at Camden V. where interment was made. The floral tributes were beautiful and were carried into the church by eight of Roy’s school friends.

 

IN LOVING MEMORY - In loving memory of my dear husband, Abraham a. Hagerman, who passed away on October 31st, 1936 from injuries received by the tornado at the Trenton Airport……Wife and Son, Roy.

DEATH OF WIDOW OF LATE CANNIFF HAIGHT - WELL KNOWN WRITER ON PIONEER LIFE RECALLED - IN HER 87TH YEAR -- Death came yesterday to Mrs. Canniff Haight, in her eighty-seventh year, at Lyndhurst Hospital, after a comparatively short illness, although she had been somewhat infirm on account of advanced age for some time. The passing of Mrs. Haight recalled the work of her talented husband who perhaps did more to visualize Canadian pioneer life in Ontario than any other single contributor to Canadian literature. His work "Country Life in Canada Fifty Years Ago", written in 1885 and "Here and There in the Home Land - England, Scotland and Ireland - as Seen By a Canadian", written in 1895, are to be found in nearly every Canadian public library. The late Mrs. Haight, like her husband, was a descendant of UE Loyalist stock and was born at Adolphustown, Lennox County in 1826. Although she had lived in Toronto since 1872, many years of her life were spent in Picton, Ont. She married Mr. Haight in Fredericksburgh in 1852 and is survived by four sons, Messrs. W.R. Haight, Toronto; H. H. Haight, Scranton Penn, USA; W. L. Haight, Crown Attorney at Parry Sound and C. P. Haight of Toronto. The interment, which will be private, takes place in St. James Cemetery on Saturday from the residence of her son, Mr. W.R. Haight, Huron Street.

Pte. J. A. Haines - Pts. Bert Haines was born in Camden Ontario September 25th 1895 and died on the field of Flanders January 5th 1917. 

Pte Haines was of a kind and loving disposition always willing to lend a helping hand and was well liked by young and old of the neighborhood of Anderson, where he lived for the past fifteen years. 

A letter from the Lieut. of his Battalion, M. B. Thornhill, says of him, “That he was unassuming, quiet, always calm and collected while under fire.”  Bert was one of the brave boys, who thought that liberty and freedom were better than life under Prussian rule.  He therefore voluntarily left his father’s home and went to a foreign land to do his bit for King and Country. 

A memorial service was held last Sunday in Anderson Church.  The church was crowded with sympathizing friends and the address given by his Pastor, Rev. W. S. Boyes, B. A., was full of sympathy and patriotism.  It was a masterly address from the text  “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for another.” 

He threw his living breast to stem the German tide. 

This volunteer from Canada he fought as veteran tried.

He met the boast of William’s host

He met them hand to hand.

This volunteer of Canada, this boy from our land.

When men come back from war’s grim track

And silent is the gun

I’ll look with pride on him that died

And say he was my son.

WILLIAM HALES (Kingston) - Was born  in Kingston, and on the 19th of last November reached the age of forty-nine.  After lingering for six weeks  with a tumor on the brain, sometimes conscious and sometimes unconscious, and often in great agony of pain, he slept in the arms of his Redeemer on Saturday, Dec. 18th, 1886;  and having spent many Sabbaths of delight in the Church upon earth, he went to spend the following Sabbath with the “Church triumphant,”  in that “building of God,”  that “house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”  All through his affliction his faith in Christ was firm and his hope was bright.  One morning, when so far gone that he spoke with great difficulty, he asked for water, and when his dry lips, parched tongue and languid body were refreshed, his eye brightened, and he said, “That reminds me of the streams which make glad . . . “  He was evidently thinking of the “river the streams whereof shall make glad the City of God.”  An unusually large number of friends, including the Society of the  Ancient Order of United Workmen, attended the funeral, and the memorial service held about two weeks afterwards in the church.  The discourse of his pastor on the last-named occasion was based on Amos v. 8.  The central idea set forth in the discourse being that the shadow of death will be turned for the Christian into the morning of heavenly day.  Bro. Hales had lived nearly twenty-two years of happy married life;  and besides his faithful, affectionate companion, leaves two daughters and a son, nearly grown to maturity and much respected.  Ever after  God took away his dear little boy, six years of age, his mind was seriously turned toward the “sweet by-and-bye,” when he expected to see the budding rose-bush which had been plucked from his side on earth blooming in full angelic splendor in the gardens of heaven.  Before his conversion, which occurred about eleven years ago, under the ministry of Rev. Mr. Porter, he was exceedingly lively;  and after his conversion became a lively Christian - a “lively stone” in God’s spiritual house.  In Kingston Fourth Church our departed brother took an intense interest, being a member of the Quarterly Board, an efficient class-leader, and for some time society steward.  The Board of the church passed a tender resolution of condolence to his family, and appreciative of his usefulness, as well as deploring his death as a personal bereavement.  He was a soul-winner, faithful at the family altar, and a willing worker in the church, while a happy cheerfulness pervaded his life.  It was truly touching to see little children who had plucked his garments and shared his smile upon the street, come and weep to notice the face of their merry friend so fixed and solemn.  They sorrowed most of all, knowing that they should see his face no more.  Almost every person loved him, because he loved them.   [signed]  Reuben Stilwell.

(nee Smith)

 

The Late Mrs. W.F. Hall

One of Napanee's oldest and best known residents passed away Monday afternoon, when Mrs. W.F. Hall died at her home on the Newburgh Road.

Mrs. Hall had reached the advanced age nearly eighty-nine. For the past few years she had been practically confined to her home, but had retained, in a remarkable way, the use of her faculties, a fine mental alertness and a keen interest in all that was going on. Her last illness was of brief duration and she passed quietly away after a long and useful life.

Before her marriage, Mrs. Hall was Sarah Eliza Smith. She was one of four daughters of the late Geo. I. Smith and his wife, Mary Ann Huyck, all of whom have now passed on. She was born in North Fredericksburgh Township and removed to Napanee with her parents when they retired, over sixty years ago.

Shortly after coming to Napanee, she married the late W.F. Hall, who at that time was secretary-treasurer of the Paper Company at Napanee Mills, now Strathcona. Later, Mr. Hall conducted an insurance business in Napanee,  and was interested in other enterprises. Mr. Hall died about eleven years ago.

The association of the late Mr. and Mrs. Hall with Trinity United church was one of long and honorable standing. Their life history was closely connected with the life history of the church during more than half a century. For many years, Mr. Hall was recording steward of the old Eastern Methodist Church, which later became Trinity United Church. For twenty-one years, Mrs. Hall was president of the Ladies' Aid a position from which she retired only eleven years ago. Their service was given in unstinted measure and was typical of service of a large group of similarly minded people, who made the building of the present church a possibility.

Mrs. Hall is survived by four daughters and one son; Mrs. Myers of Toronto, Miss Florence, at home, Mrs. Madden, the wife of Judge J. E. Madden, Napanee, Mrs. Challies, wife of the Hon, G.H. Challies, and Mr. Ernest, of Winnipeg, general storekeeper of the western lines of the Canadian Pacific Railway.

The funeral service is being conducted at the home on Thursday afternoon, with Rev. Harry Pawson, minister of Trinity United Church, in charge.

Ex-R've Frank Ham Died Suddenly Kingston Hospital - Attended County Council From South Fred. For Nearly 4 years -

With the death of Frank N. Ham of Conway in Kingston General Hospital on Saturday, April 19th, the Township of South Fredericksburgh and the County of Lennox and Addington lost one of its most progressive citizens.

Mr. Ham who was only 49 years of age suffered an attack of coronary thrombosis in 1949. He was in the Hospital for some time, but appeared to have made a good recovery. Some weeks ago he returned to the hospital for a check up and treatment and just before he was scheduled to return home had to undergo a rather serious operation. He was reported to be making satisfactory progress until he suffered a heart attack and passed away.

Mr. Ham was born at Conway and was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. George T. Ham. His father's family have been identified with the public life of the Township for several generations. His grandfather Ira Ham, was Reeve of the Township of South Fredericksburgh in 1873. His father George T. Ham was clerk of the Township for 29 years. Frank Ham was Reeve of South Fredericksburgh from 1944 to 1949. During his last year as Reeve he became ill and had to give up public life. During the time he was a member of the county Council he served on several important committees and had considerable to do with the formation of the county Health Unit, on the Board of which he acted for a few years. many farm organizations in the county received his active support as well as St. Paul's Anglican Church at Sandhurst, of which he was a member.

Mr. Ham is survived by his wife, formerly Elizabeth Crews, by two children, Katherine and Thomas, by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. George T. Ham and four sisters, Mrs. Maurice Young, Sandhurst, Mrs. H. C. Hunter, Kingston and Mrs. Mary Smith of Denver, Colorado and Miss Margaret Ham, Toronto.

His funeral was conducted by Rev. Henry Hill, at St. Paul's Anglican Church, Sandhurst, on Tuesday afternoon and interment followed in St. Paul's Cemetery.

Attending the funeral were many friends from the County. County Council members and County officials.

 

Tribute to Frank Ham - to the Editor -

One of those periods of sorrow and gloom which periodically visit all communities, this week fell on the Ham family, Conway. The death of Frank Ham is a deep loss to the whole neighborhood.

Frank Ham, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Ham, died in Kingston General Hospital, Saturday, April 19th. His body was returned to his home to-day (Sunday) and the funeral will take place at St. Paul's Church, Sandhurst, April 22nd at 2:30 p.m.  He had been in ill-health for some time but faced all in great hopefulness.

Frank, as everyone knew him, was what we might term a mutation in our community. His nature refused to be fettered by the past. His methods cut across old custom and established practice. He pioneered new methods. Machinery fascinated him and he employed it beyond any previously established practice in our neighborhood. He studied crops and soils and fertility and drainage and rations. Any problem was a challenge and he sought the answer. What seemed the impossible to many was a spur to him and he sought to prove its practicability. Defeatism and surrender, when an undertaking went foul and unforeseen difficulties arose, was not in his nature.

Frank was essentially a man of the community. He was a member of the Anglican church, a leading Mason and gave much time and effort to Agricultural organization. He was also Reeve of our Township for several years.

To the public and in our neighbourhood, his greatest attribute was perhaps Friendliness. He possessed a magnetism that compelled respect even in disagreement. A neighbour he was to all - a Good Samaritan.

If it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved, Frank had loved. he was not permitted to carry out and on to maturity of years.

Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Ham, his parents, and his wife and daughter and son, survive him. To these we wish to extend our deepest sympathy.   A NEIGHBOUR

GEORGE HAM ESQ. - one of the oldest and most respected residents of South Fredericksburgh, died at his residence, Conway P.O. on Tuesday, 14th  inst., after a long and painful illness which continued over a year. Mr. Ham was a life long resident of this county, a descendant of one of the U.E.L. pioneers, who came up the Bay of Quinte in 1784, and settled in what was then an unbroken wilderness in the vicinity of Hamburgh. Deceased was a son of Mr. John Ham, a prominent resident of the township, both in Christian work and business affairs. He was in the eighty-seventh year of his age. He was married fifty-nine years ago to Miss Pruyn, a sister of the late Sheriff Pruyn, of this county, who survives him with their four children, Wm. Thatford Ham, Esq., who lives a few lots west of the old homestead, Mrs. Price., of Moorhead Minn, Mrs. Ross of Napanee, and Miss Jennie Ham, residing at home. Mr. and Mrs. Ham soon after their marriage settled on their newly acquired farm, at Conway, where they have always since lived and became the oldest residents of the locality. He was a man of intelligence and ability and of much influence in his day. It is said he was Sir Richard Cartwright's choice for sheriff when this County was first divided from Frontenac. In politics he was a staunch Conservative and used to claim he never gave a vote to any other party in his life. He was a consistent member of the Church of England and knew intimately every minister who has ever labored in that parish. He was for many years and until the time of his death Postmaster at Conway. By his industry and excellent business ability he became a man of considerable wealth. Mrs. Solomon Wright and Mrs. Byard Detlor are sisters and our townsman, Zina Ham and Mr. John Ham of Albany N. Y. are surviving brothers.

Deceased was an intelligent, upright man, a kind neighbor and faithful friend. For several years he was subject to that fatal disease, Consumption, which hurried him to an early grave, leaving behind him a wife and two children, to whom he was fondly attached, besides a mother and a large family of brothers and sisters, to mourn their loss which was his gain. He was a member of the Wesleyan Methodist Church. A very instructive and impressive sermon was delivered by the Rev.

Death of Ira Ham

We regret to learn that Ira Ham, Esq., for many years the Reeve of South Fredericksburgh, died at his residence, Hamburg, on Thursday, after a very long and painful sickness of cancer.

He has been troubled with a cancer on his temple for over two years, and for more than a year past it has been evident that, in the end, it must prove fatal. Mr. Ham was a gentleman much respected and popular in his native township, and for years was a leading spirit in the Conservative party in the municipality. He was at one time Warden of Lennox and Addington, and in the County Council he had much influence. He occupied a seat in the County Council for eight or ten years, until January, '80, when his health had become so feeble as to make it necessary for him to retire from public life.

Sudden Death - One of the most sudden and unexpected deaths that has occurred in Napanee for years, was that of John D. Ham, last evening. For some time past his friends have observed that he was falling rapidly, but no one had the slightest idea that his end was so near at hand. About seven o'clock in the evening, in company with his niece, Miss Hooper, he went for a short walk, and when near the residence of Mrs. Ross on Centre street, he was taken with a faint spell. He was immediately taken into Mrs. Ross and Dr. Grant sent for, who, with Dr. Ruttan, did all in their power to restore him, but to no avail, and he passed peacefully away.

Deceased was in his seventy-third year, and for the past half a century was one of the most prominent men in our county, occupying the highest positions in the county council and school board. Deceased leaves a faithful and sorrowing wife, who has been a partner of his joys and sorrows and had much to do with his eminently successful business career. Their only son died some years ago, and at Mr. Ham's request he will probably be laid at his side in the family plot at Newburgh on Monday next.

The many friends of George Hambly, a well-known and progressive Richmond farmer, will much regret to learn of his death, which took place at Denver, Colorado, on Sunday last, aged about thirty-three years. He was a son of Samuel Hambly, of South Napanee, and has been all his lifetime a resident of this locality. For the last few years he has been associated with his brother, John in hog and live stock dealing, and was well known throughout the county. Some months ago he took sick, of consumption, and spent some time at the sanitarium, at Gravenhurst, but received no benefits. He was next prevailed upon to go to Denver, hoping to receive benefit from the change of climate there. Last week his friends received encouraging letters from him. On Saturday, however, a telegram came stating that he was much worse and his brother John at once started to him. On Monday the sad tidings came of his death, which must have occurred before his brother could reach there. It is probable that the body will be brought back to Napanee as soon as possible for burial. He was married to Miss Edna Brandon, daughter of William Brandon, of the Selby road, who survives him, with one son, but fourteen months old.

ELIZABETH McDONALD - Beloved wife of John Hannah, was born in Glengarry, May 17th, 1819, and departed this life in her quiet home near Mississippi Station, March 28th, 1886.  Our departed sister was united in marriage to Mr. John Hannah, March 14th, 1845, and about two years after moved to their present residence, and for over 41 years shared life’s joys and sorrow.  It seemed sad to separate them even for a short time.  They had eight daughters and three sons. One son has gone to rest, and ten affectionate children and a loving husband mourn the departed, but do not mourn as those without hope.  “Tis God who has bereft them, and he can all their sorrows heat.”  All are members of our church except two, and in her dying moments that dear son out of Christ was in her mind, and the hope that he would be led to Christ and meet her in heaven, in her heart.   It was not possible for three daughters in the west to be present.  Daniel, however, who was absent on the “survey of the Brockville and Westport Railroad,”  returned in time for the funeral.  May the whole family appear on the “right hand” as they meet before the throne.  Her disposition was not impulsive, but rather retiring, and she was calm amidst the greatest suffering.  She calmly fell asleep in Jesus with a pleasing smile upon her countenance.  At eventide there was truly light.  [signed] N.

Rev. Robert Harding, for many years rector of old St. Paul's Adolphustown, died at Napanee on Friday, aged eighty-nine years.

   

Funeral of the Aged Minister

The funeral of the late Rev. R. Harding took place at the church of St. Alban the Martyr, Adolphustown. Before leaving Napanee a memorial service was held in St. Mary Magdalene Church. Clergy served as pallbearers, the casket being borne by old friends of deceased. The holy communion was celebrated by Rural Dean Baker, and Rev. F.D. Woodcock acting as gospeller and epistoler respectively. During the service the body rested in the choir, the clergy watching on either side.

At Adolphustown, the Rev. R.S. Forneri, rector, and several other clergymen received the funeral procession, which was augmented by a large number of Mr. Harding's old parishioners. The service in the church was very impressive. At Mr. Harding's own request no word of eulogy or funeral address marred the grand simplicity of the Anglican rite, the only departure from the regular form being the insertion of the prayer for the "church millitant" in commemoration of the faithful departed. At the grave the prayers were said by the rector and Rev. A. Jarvis, of Napanee.

OBITUARY - Mrs. Peter Hart

Mrs. Peter Hart, a resident of Roblin, passed away at Kingston General Hospital, on Saturday, October 24th, where she had been taken one week ago.  On October 4th a little son was born to their home.  Everything was favourable at first for a quick recovery, when complications arose, and her condition became serious and she was moved to Kingston General Hospital in Martin’s ambulance on October 18th.  While there everything that skilful medical attendance and careful nursing could do, was done, but it was of no avail, and she passed peacefully away on Saturday, with perfect submission to the will of God.

The deceased was Florence Pennell, daughter of Peter Pennell, of Roblin, and had spent all of her lifetime in this vicinity, where she was widely known and highly respected.  She will be sadly missed by her many friends and especially her husband and nine children, three girls and six boys, the oldest seventeen years, and the youngest the tiny infant of three weeks.

Seldom has the whole community been so saddened by a death as by Mrs. Hart’s death, at the early age of 36 years and 10 months.  The funeral service was held in the Holiness Movement Church, where Rev. C. J. Wilson preached a very impressive sermon, assisted by Rev. S. H. Jeffrey.  The church was crowded with sympathetic friends.  Sympathy and sadness was written on everyone’s face, as they looked upon the little helpless family left without the kind loving care of their mother.  Besides her own family she leaves her father and one brother, Ross Pennell, of Wilton to mourn her loss.  Her remains were conveyed to the Roblin cemetery and interred in the family plot.

NELSON HART -

The death occurred at the home of his son, Nelson, on Wednesday morning, November 18th, of Nelson Hart, one of Napanee’s oldest residents.  The late Mr. Hart had been in ill health for several months and was confined to his bed for several weeks.

A son of Mr. and Mrs. Darius Hart, he was one of a family of thirteen, and was born in this county, where he was a successful farmer for a number of years.

At the age of 22 years, he married Margaret Anne Thompson, of Roblin, who predeceased him fourteen years ago.   They lived, with their family, near Roblin for a number of years.  Leaving that district Mr. Hart purchased a farm near Moscow and remained in that neighborhood for four years. Leaving Moscow, he moved to the Anderson district where he and Mrs. Hart resided until her death, six years later.  The family remained on the farm for three years and then Mr. Hart and his son moved to Croydon, where they resided for four years, after which Mr. Hart purchased the Roland Hawley farm on the Newburgh Road.  After a life-time spent on the farm he retired to enjoy a well-earned competence and came to Napanee, where he has resided for the past three years.  He was a member of the United Church and a Conservative in politics.  Until his illness he enjoyed exceptionally good health and was a remarkable man for his age.  He was exceptionally well known throughout the northern parts of the county and was held in high esteem by all who knew him.  He leaves to mourn his loss eight children, forty grandchildren and twenty great grand-children and one brother, Miles Hart of Dresden.  His children are:  Edward Hart of Roblin, Frank Hart of Little Creek, Nelson Hart of Napanee, Alex. Hart, Croydon;  Mrs. Marlin, Tamworth;  Mrs. Will Smith, Centreville;  Mrs. Marshall, St. Catharines;  and Mrs. Albert Young, Napanee.  The funeral service was held on Friday afternoon November 12th, from the residence of his son, Robert Street, to Grace United Church, Rev.

OBITUARY - Mr. John Hartin

Mr. John Hartin, of West Plain, passed peacefully away on October 26th, 1928, at the age of seventy-three. He had been ailing from some time, but was only in bed a few days when the call came to come up higher.

Everything was done that could be done to stay the hand of death, but God had called and he must go.

Many years he had been a servant of the Lord, and a faithful helper in church and community life.  He left a clear evidence behind that the Lord was with him, with no dark clouds to hide the master’s face, as he went down into the valley of death.

The funeral was largely attended at the United Church at West Plain where he was a regular attendant.  The service was conducted by his Pastor, Rev A. E. Oliver, and Rev. Mr. Bennett, Pastor of the Holiness Movement Church at Roblin. A beautiful duet was rendered by Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Brooks, of Roblin.  The Scripture lesson chosen by the deceased,  was taken from the 14th chapter of John, that being his favourite chapter.

He leaves to mourn his loss a sorrowing wife and two daughters, Mrs. W. J. Tyner, and Mrs. W. G. Pringle;  also three sisters and two brothers.  Mr. Hartin will be greatly missed, and the vacancy will be hard to fill, but his work was done.

HENRY HAWKINS - Was born at Bittirswell, near Lutterworth, Leicestershire, England, Dec. 21st, 1807.  He was clearly converted to God when he was seventeen years of age, the memory of which remained throughout his life and formed a delightsome subject of conversation the days preceding his death.  He united first with the Congregationalists in Lutterworth, and afterwards with the people called “Methodists,” who met in a little church called the Bethel, in the town of Leicester.  Here he became a local preacher, and continued in that office as long as the was able to take appointments, and thus work for the Master.  He came to Canada in 1839, and found a church home among the Episcopal and Primitive Methodists;  and after coming to St. Mary’s he joined with the Methodist Church, which he attended as long as he was able.  The principal part of his active Christian life was spent in connection with the Brampton and Wellesley Circuits of the Primitive Methodist Church.  I enjoyed my visits with him during the latter days of his life, and found him in the exercise of strong faith in God and of good hope in the home prepared for him.  He was among those who say “the former days were better than these,”  and yet he was much interested in the work of the Church, and especially anxious for the salvation of his own family, each of whom regarded him as a godly father.  He died on the 22nd of December, 1886.

SUN SET AT NOON

The expression 'sun set at noon', applies very pathetically to the deceased of our lamented friend, Charles Gibson Hawley, who departed this life in the old home at Gosport, in the Township of Adolphustown, on Tuesday evening, March 12th  1907. He was the only son of the late Samuel Hawley and his esteemed wife, whose maiden name was Miss Jemima Huycke. His birth took place on the 20th  day of August, in the year 1855. He was always proud to claim Ernesttown as his native township. His age, at the time of his death was a few months less that 52 years. How true that with him the sun of life went down while it was still high noon.

He was married to Miss Hannah Baker, of Portsmouth, near Kingston, in the year 1880. Those who survive him and now mourn his loss are, his devoted wife, his sorrowing and aged mother, one widowed sister, Mrs. Randell, and two children, Frank, of Winnipeg, and Mrs. Jas. Robertson, now residing in the old home at Gosport, with her devoted husband and widowed mother. The deceased contracted a severe cold, some ten weeks previous to his death, which developed into pneumonia and terminated fatally, in spite of all that medical science and skilful nursing could do. He entertained but slight hopes of recovery from the beginning, and at once surrendered to the will of God. He spent the weeks of his lingering illness in seeking and trusting Christ, under the earnest and faithful direction of pastor and many praying friends. While our transfated friend felt satisfied that he had made his peace with God, before he was taken away, yet he wished to leave a dying message for his neighbors and friends. This is the message coming from his dying lips. 'make your peace with God, at once, do not waste your lives in sin, and run the risk of losing your souls forever.' May we all be disposed to heed our neighbor's dying message, since it has been written by God, 'He that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.' The funeral, which took place on March 14th , was largely attended, and the memorial service, conducted by his pastor, Rev. J. W. Down, was very suitable an deeply impressive. What is mortal of our lost one will wait the trumpet's call, in the Eastern cemetery at Napanee. May his ashes rest in peace until the morning breaks - Com.

Death from Hydrophobia - A melancholy event, the like of which is fortunately of very rare occurrence, transpired here last week. A little boy, about eight years of age, son of Mr. Sheldon Hawley of this town, died of hydrophobia on Thursday morning, having been bitten by a small dog owned by Mr. Hawley. The dog was not suspected of being rabid, and when the child was taken sick the parents did not know the true nature of the cause till medical men were called in, who saw at once that the little patient was suffering all the agonies of that dreadful malady.  The dog has been killed, as also several other dogs which were bitten by him, and we trust we shall have no more cases of the kind to chronicle.

The Late Mrs. Cartwright Hawley

Mrs. Cartwright Hawley passed away at her home in Napanee early Tuesday morning, following an illness of some weeks.  Mrs. Hawley had not enjoyed good health for some time, and about eight weeks ago suffered a severe stroke of apoplexy. For a few weeks she was a patient at the Kingston General Hospital, but was brought back to her home in Napanee about a month ago, since when her condition had steadily become more serious, until death resulted.

The late Mrs. Hawley was formerly Elizabeth Matilda Joyce, daughter of the late James and Marjory Jane Joyce. She was born in North Fredericksburgh, nearly seventy-one years ago, where she lived until her marriage to Mr. Cartwright Hawley, just a few months more than fifty years ago. After their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Hawley resided for a short time at Hay Bay. Then for a number of years they resided in North Adolphustown, near Bardolph. They retired about twenty-three years ago and since have made their home in Napanee. In whatever community they have lived, they have been held in the highest respect by a large host of friends who sincerely regret the death of Mrs. Hawley. During her residence in Napanee, Mrs. Hawley had been a member of Trinity United church, where she took an active interest in all the organizations and had been most generous in her support.

Mrs. Hawley is survived by her husband and one adopted daughter, Mrs. C.D. Black of Kingston. One brother, Mr. J.M. Joyce, of Napanee, also survives. Her sisters, Mrs. T.A. Percy, Mrs. (Rev.) T.H. Richards, and her brothers, William, Samuel and Sheldon, predeceased her some years ago.

Her funeral is to be held at the family residence, Bridge St., Thursday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. with Rev. Harry Pawson of Trinity Church in charge. Interment will follow at Riverside Cemetery.

Ex-Sheriff G.D. Hawley Died in 94th Year - Was Former M.L.A. for Lennox and Addington

Death removed one of the oldest and best known residents of the County of Lennox, when Mr. George Douglas Hawley passed away at his home on Thomas Street, Napanee, on Friday evening. Better known to the present generation as 'Sheriff Hawley', Mr. Hawley had also occupied other positions of prominence in the official life of the county, in his earlier days. He was a member of the Ontario Legislature for two terms, when he won the seat in two elections from the late George Tate Blackstock, K.C. He was defeated in the third election by the late Alex Roe.

After his defeat by Mr. Roe, Mr. Hawley was made Clerk of the Division court, which position he held for nine years, until he was appointed Sheriff, about forty years ago by the Mowat administration. For 29 years, Mr. Hawley retained the position of sheriff, until he superannuated eleven years ago, and the present sheriff, Mr. C.W. Vandervoort, was appointed to the office.

Intense Interest in Politics -

Mr. Hawley was a staunch Liberal in politics. He was one of the few remaining members of the old school of politicians. Politics to him was the breath of life. His interest in all matters pertaining to his party remained, a noteworthy characteristic until the end. While keenly interested in the affairs of the county and province, his interest extended to a far wider sphere. He kept informed on world events and had a grasp of British politics, which would be the envy of many a young man.

Until within a week of his death he was a constant reader of the daily papers and retained a keen grasp on current events.

The late Mr. Hawley was seriously ill only one week, although he had been confined to his room for the past two years. He was born in the Township of South Fredericksburgh, nearly 94 years ago, the eldest son of the late Joseph Hawley and Mary Douglas. At the age of four years he went to Kingston to live with his uncle, Charles Heath, a prominent druggist of the city. Until he was thirteen years of age he attended a private school in the city, conducted by Dr. McLean and then entered his uncle's drug store, where he remained until he was twenty-one. At that time he decided to return to his father's home and remained on the farm until he came to Napanee 38 years ago.

Bishop Renison Assisted at Funeral -

One of Ernesttown's oldest residents passed away here on Thursday night last, in the person of Jason Hawley. Mr. Hawley was in his seventy-sixth year, and was born about two miles from this village, on the Quobin road. He has never lived outside of the township. During his lifetime, Mr. Hawley was a very hardworking man, and was always honorable in all his dealings. In his early years he was a great hunter and trapper, and was thoroughly acquainted with the back country. His latter years were quiet and peaceful, and he died with many friends and not an enemy in the world. For a number of years he was superintendent of the walks in the village, and always attended promptly to his work. For a few years, Mr. Hawley was never well, and during the last year he suffered greatly, but uncomplainingly from cancer of the stomach and gangrene in one foot. To his family he expressed his willingness to die and then quietly sank to sleep. He is mourned by a wife, three sons and three daughters, and two half-brothers, Billings Gordon, of Odessa, and John Gordon, of Parham, who were here to attend the funeral. Mrs. Jones, one of the daughters, came from Rome, N.Y., to attend the funeral, which was held on Sunday morning, at the Brick church, conducted by the Rev. Mr. Seccombe. A large number paid their last respects to the dead. The remains were interred at Wilton.

A Man Found Dead

This morning about 8 o'clock the people of West Ward in Napanee, were much startled to learn that a man was found lying dead in front of one of the coal oil cellars on a vacant lot. It turned out to be a Mr. Josiah Hawley, of Morven, a man about 60 years of age. It appears that Mr. Hawley, though a very temperate man usually, had been drinking some last evening, though not much the worst of liquor when last seen. He seems to have wandered off to the west part of the town and probably fell off the flat roof of the coal oil cellar where he came to his death. He was a man very respectably connected, and leaves a wife but no family. An inquest is being held before Coroner Huffman.

An Old Resident Gone

The death of Joseph C. Hawley, of South Fredericksburgh, resulted from an attack of congestion of the lungs. Mr. Hawley was 82 years of age, but up to a month prior to his death was in the enjoyment of excellent health. the Napanee Express says his funeral took place on Wednesday the place of interment being Bath. The deceased gentleman was a son of Davis Hawley, a U.E. Loyalist from New York State, who arrived in this country about 1870* and was among the first settlers of the district. He was the last of a family of nine, and was born on the farm where he resided up to the time of his death. Possessed of fine social qualities and a genial disposition he drew around him a large circle of friends, and it can be truthfully said of him that he had not an enemy. Though never taking a very active part in politics he was always a supporter of Reform principles, and by his good example in applying these principles to his every day walk he exerted a far-reaching influence for his party. He was for years an active member of the Canada Methodist Church, in which capacity he will probably be more greatly missed than in any other. He leaves behind him three sons - the late worthy member for the Local Legislature, C. and J.M. - all of whom are "worthy successors of a worthy sire." The daughters are Mrs. W.A. Gunn, of Kingston, and Misses Mary A. and Carrie Hawley, who reside on the homestead.

Drowned on Monday

Two People Perish While Attempting to Cross the Ice Near Bath

On Monday Mr. Maguire, butcher, attempted to cross the ice from Bath to Amherst Island. within a short distance of this destination he found that the ice about him had been broken, and that he was standing on detached cakes. Some men saw him and put out to his assistance in a small boat. He rowed down to Bath on Thursday and reached home yesterday afternoon, bringing with him the sad news of the drowning of two young people, the adopted children of Mr. Preston, who lives at the foot of  Amherst Island. Some years ago Mr. Preston adopted Lizzie Hawley and a boy named Robertson. They remained under his roof and shared his hospitality until Monday night, when they concocted the idea of running away from him. They started in the evening, taking the ice and heading for Bath. Miss Hawley carried a valise. When they got within a short distance of Bath the ice parted from under them and they went down. They screamed for help, and their cries were heard by people at Fairfield's wharf, but the cakes of ice were so closely wedged together that it was impossible for the boat to get to them quickly, and they were drowned. On Tuesday morning a valise was found. It contained some clothes and a letter addressed to Miss Hawley. The boy Robertson was 13 years of age, and Miss Hawley 21. The bodies have not yet been recovered.

Later - The Bath stage driver brought to the city this morning the package containing the clothing of the boy (whose name turns out to be Robertson), a bible, given him by his mother at Christmas, and several Christmas cards. These will be returned to Mr. Preston, of Amherst Island.

 

The mother of young Robertson, drowned while running away from Amherst Island, lives in Picton. Miss Hawley was the sixth of her family who died during the past sixth years.

 

Finding of a Woman's Today - A Horrid Mass Tied to the Back of a Schooner and Towed Here - Daily Whig 5th.

This morning about 11 o'clock Capt. C.H. Smith of the sloop Belle, found the body of a woman floating on the water, a mile west of The Brothers. He tied a rope around the body and towed it behind his vessel to the G.T.R. wharf, arriving at 3.30 p.m. Covering the underclothing on the body is a dark ulster; around the neck is a scarf or cloud, and on the feet are boots over which are rubbers.

On one of the fingers is a dark ring, and in the ears are gold earrings. Capt. Smith notified Coroner Irwin of the circumstance. The coroner says the body was found beyond his jurisdiction. He would not hold an inquest anyway.

The body is supposed to be that of Miss Lizzie Hawley, who perished last January while crossing on the ice from Amherst Island to the mainland. She was accompanied by a young lad named Roberts, who was also drowned. Both were the adopted children of Mr. Preston, who lives at the foot of the island. They ran away from their foster-father and were making for Kingston. People heard their cries, but a boat could not be sent to them. The boy Robertson was 13 years of age, and Miss Hawley, 21.

From the location of the finding of the body Rev. Mr. Cumberland was sure the remains were those of the unfortunate girl. "I was saying yesterday" he said, "that the bodies might be found anytime after the very severe gale we had on Monday night."

Obituary - Mrs. J. C. Hawley - Mary Collins, beloved wife of Mr. John C. Hawley, of Napanee, died on Saturday morning last at the residence of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Collins, of North Fredericksburgh, aged 36 years. She was a person of very bright and cheerful disposition, and had many friends, who deeply regret her death at such an early age. She was married about eleven years ago to Mr. J. C. Hawley, and they lived in Napanee for a number of years past, where her husband is in business. She has been in poor health for several years, a victim of consumption, but it was only since last spring that her illness took an alarming turn. It became evident that her case was past all human skill. Some months ago she became so ill as to find it necessary to break up her own household and go with her parents, where every care and attention was given to her. She became aware that her end was near and looked to her death with composure and confidence. She was a Methodist. She leaves four children, a daughter of about ten years, and three sons, younger, to mourn with their father an irreparable loss. The funeral took place on Monday from her parent's residence, and the body was deposited in the Napanee vault. Mr. and Mrs. Collins had two daughters, both women of much more than ordinary promise and intelligence, and both of whom have gone to early graves, victims of consumption.

Another very sad death occurred on Saturday morning, when Mrs. J.C. Hawley passed peacefully away after a lingering illness of some months of consumption. Deceased's maiden name was Mary Collins, daughter of Robert Collins, North Fredericksburgh, at whose place the death took place. Deceased was in her thirty-fifth year, and leaves, besides her husband, four small children to mourn the loss of a tender wife and devoted mother.

On Monday morning at two o'clock the spirit of Nettie Hawley, youngest daughter of Mrs. William Hawley, Robert street, winged its flight to that happy realm above.

Reuben C. Hawley, Esq. - one of the oldest men residing in this County died at his residence in North Fredericksburgh, on Saturday last, 18th inst., aged nearly ninety years. A few months ago, THE BEAVER published a sketch of Mr. Hawley, giving pretty full particulars of his life history, which most of our readers will, no doubt, well remember. He was then active, cheerful and in good health and remained so until recently; his sickness only lasting over a few days. He was born in 1808 on a farm a short distance east of what is now the village of Camden East, but long before there was even a vestage of a village there. A few years later his parents moved several miles further down the Napanee river and located on the farm where for over 84 years he resided, until the time of his death. He well remembered the rise and progress of Napanee from the time when it consisted of a small grist mill, a store and two or three other houses until it reached its present dimensions. Kingston was but a small village when he first remembered it. He was of U.E. Loyalist descent, his grandfather, Davis Hawley, being one of the first settlers of this county. He lived on the boundary line between Fredericksburgh and Ernesttown, in the second concession, and was a near neighbor of Robert Perry, grandfather of the late Wm. H. Perry. It was somewhat singular these two well known old residents whose bodies now lie side by side in the Napanee Cemetery vault, and who died within a week of each other, that their grandfathers came into upper Canada about the same time, were near neighbors and warm friends; their fathers were born near the same time and were life long acquaintances, and they themselves were born within three years of each other, lived all their lifetime quite near each other, were warm friends, members of the same political party and of the same church. Mr. Hawley was always an active and industrious man, a good farmer, an excellent and obliging neighbor and a man of genial disposition and much intelligence. He was the last survivor of a large and influential family.. He had six children, four of whom survive him. They are Mrs. A. L. Bogart, of Deseronto; Mrs. George Lasher, of Toronto; Mrs. G. H. Williams, of Napanee , and George, who resides on the old homestead in North Fredericksburgh.

 

On Saturday last, Reuben C. Hawley passed peacefully away at the ripe old age of eighty-nine years, seven months and eighteen days at the old homestead, Fredericksburgh. Four children are left to mourn - Mrs. G.H. Williams, Napanee; Mrs. George Lasher, Toronto; Mrs. Bogart, Deseronto, and R.G. Hawley, on the homestead. Deceased was one of the oldest settlers in the township. the funeral occurred on Sunday afternoon and was very largely attended.

HENDERSON - At Napanee, on Thursday, May 12th, 1921, Mrs. Margaret Henderson, aged 87 years and 11 months.

 

OBITUARY - Margaret Henderson.

On Friday, May 12th, 1921, there passed peacefully away one of the oldest and most respected residents of the Town of Napanee. 

Margaret Henderson, who was a daughter of John Scott, of Ebenezer, was born in Ireland, in 1833, and came to this country when about a year old.  The family lived for some years in Adolphustown, but finally settled at Ebenezer, in Tyendinaga.  here her early years were spent.  She was one of a large family, only two of whom are now left to mourn her loss, Henry, of Northport, Michigan and David, of California.  She was one of the pioneer school teachers of the County, having taught successfully for a number of years.  In 1870, she married John Henderson, merchant, of Lime Lake, one of the early settlers of Hastings Co., who predeceased her some fourteen years.

When quite young she was converted to God and united with the Methodist Church, of which she was to the end a faithful and zealous supporter.  She leaves a large family to mourn her loss, her stepchildren, William, Thomas, Robert and Andrew, of Napanee;  John of Port Huron, Michigan;  George, of Lime lake;  James, of Parish, New York;  Mrs. Elijah Jarmin, lime Lake;  Mrs. Herman Masters, Hamilton, and Mrs. Thos. H. Alexander, of Hillier, P.E. County;  and her own family, Mrs. E. W. Hudgins, of Parish, New York;  Mrs. M. B. Alexander, Napanee, and Mrs. J. Lucas, Lime Lake.

Although Mrs. Henderson had nearly reached the advanced age of 88 years, her mind was as keen and her intellect as brilliant as ever, while her interest in and knowledge of the current events of the day far surpassed that of many younger persons.

She was one who was always youthful in thought, fearless in speech, true to her convictions, a kind and obliging neighbour, a generous and indulgent mother and a faithful friend.

Her loss will be greatly felt not only by the family, but by the large circle of friends and acquaintances, with whom she came in contact.  Up to within a few days of her death she was active as ever.  But on Wednesday morning she was taken suddenly ill.  Medical aid was at once summoned, but in spite of all that loving friends could do, she passed peacefully away at 8 o’clock on Thursday night.

Her funeral, which took place from the residence of her daughter Mrs. M. B. Alexander, Richard St., on Sunday, was largely attended.  The short service at the house was conducted by her Pastor, Rev. Dr. Shorey.  Her pall-bearers were her six sons.  The remains were then taken to Lime Lake church, near which a good many years of her life had been spent.  This church, though crowded to its utmost capacity would not hold the large crowd of neighbours and friends who came to show her respect and honour.

A very able and inspiring address was delivered by Rev. E. B. Cooke, of Newburgh, a former Pastor.  He was assisted in the services by Rev. Mr. Wilson, of Roblin, Pastor of the Church.  Both clergymen spoke very highly of deceased, emphasing especially the fact that her life had been one of service.  Mr. Cooke spoke from the text, “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints”.  The Choir rendered beautiful and appropriate music.  She was interred by the side of her husband in the cemetery at Lime lake.  Friends were present from new York city, Port Huron, Mich., Parish, New York, Trenton, Belleville, Odessa, Selby and Hillier.

OBITUARY -  Mrs. W. S. Herrington

Deep grief was felt throughout the town in the late afternoon of Sunday, march 6th, when the news spread of the death of Mrs. Herrington, wife of Walter S. Herrington, K.C.  Mrs. Herrington’s health had been impaired from some time, but she had been able to continue most of her usual activites, and had appeared to be regaining her strength.  Her final illness was but of a few hours’ duration, and the end came with unexpected suddenness.

Mrs. Herrington was a very prominent and public-spirited member of the community , and was an enthusiastic and energetic worker in every good cause.  For many years she had been identified with the Children’s Aid Society, and at the time of her death was head of the Women’s finance Committee of the Victorian Order of Nurses.  During the war the Red Cross work benefited by her labours, and it many be said that no movement for the welfare of the community failed to draw from her a sympathetic and substantial support.  But what elicited the most unstinted devotion of her time and her talents was the work of her Church.  In Sunday School, Choir, W.A., and almost every form of church activity, her earnest zeal was manifested.  For several years she had been President of the Church Womans’ Guild, and upon its work were lavished her time and her efforts, while her gifts of leadership and her personal popularity ensured that cooperation which so recently resulted in the achievement of the society’s main objective.  In her Church, in the town, and in a very wide circle of friends, will Mrs. Herrington be greatly missed.

The funeral service was held in St. Mary Magdalene’s Church, on Tuesday afternoon, conducted by the Vicar, Rev. Rural Dean Coleman, assisted by Rev. Messrs. A. H. Coleman, A. H. Creeggan, R. W. Spencer, and J. deP. Wright.  the church was filled to the doors.  The hymns, “For All the Saints” and “Abide with Me:, were well rendered by the large choir, and Mr. Marvin Rathbun sang very beautifully “Rock of Ages:.

Mrs. Herrington was the daughter of the late William Tilley, who was Science Master at the Napanee High School about forty years ago.  Besides her husband, she is survived by three children, Miss Helen, of New York;  Mrs. T. D. Sneath, of Boston, and W. Harold, of Kingston;  and by one brother, J. Fred Tilley, of Toronto.  A brother, Major William Tilley, died in England, about 1 year ago.

Obituary

At the residence of Mr. Donald McPherson, Napanee, on Monday, 18th May last, at the advanced age of 86 years and 8 months, Mr. Frederick Hesford, one of the oldest and most respected inhabitants of the neighbourhood.

The deceased was a native of Brunswick, Hanover. During the Revolutionary struggle in America, a levy of Hanoverian troops was raised, and the deceased, a youth of 17 years of age, volunteered in the Regiment of his Prince, Frederick of Brunswick, and sailed with other German troops from Stadt on the Elbe, under the command of General Redhazel, in the early part of 1776. Arriving at Quebec in the month of May in that year, he served with his Regiment in various parts of Lower Canada and the (now) United States, till the peace of 1784, when he obtained his discharge. He associated his fortunes with those meritorious men, the United Empire Loyalists, who, braving the hardships and privations of settling in the wilderness, sought a home on the shores of the Bay of Quinte.

In the year following the deceased was selected to accompany the expedition under Major Holland; to explore the tract of country lying north of lake Ontario. Proceeding in canoes up the Bay of Quinte to the Trent, they followed the course of that River and the waters flowing into it, from the west, till they reached the Lake now known as Lake Simcoe, and crossing the narrows, arrived at the shores of Lake Huron. The favourable report they were enabled to give of the country; at that time a dreary wilderness, has since been abundantly confirmed by the wide-spread improvements and dense population which of late years have changed the face of that fine region.

At the period subsequent to that, the deceased was employed under Mr. Surveyor Collins in locating the Loyalists and discharged soldiers in Bay Chaleurs, Canada East. He returned to the Bay of Quinte in 1790, and settled on his military grant near the village of Napanee, where he has since resided, industriously occupied either in the cultivation of his farm, or as an assistant in the establishment of the late Richard Robinson, Esq., and latterly in that of Allan McPherson, Esq. The amiability of his disposition and upright and truly pious life, ensured him the esteem of the whole community, who testified their sense of his worth by following his remains to the grave with every demonstration of unfeigned regret and respect. The ceremony of his interment was rendered more than usually affecting by the presence of several of his old associated, "the fathers of the Hamlet," who attended as Pall-bears, one of whom had arrived at his 96th year.

JAMES GUILDFORD HESS -

The subject of this memoir was born in the township of Sidney, Ont., March 27th, 1853;  died September, 1885. 

His parents were pious.  His father was a class-leader in the Methodist Church, who died when James was ten years of age, committing him to the care of his heavenly Father.

He learned the drug business in the city of Belleville.  His employers and all who knew him respected him for his strict business habits and integrity of character.

The last  thirteen years of his life was spent in the United states.  For several years he was manager of a large drug store in the city of St. Louis, where he was united in marriage to Laura A. Bell who, with two sons, is left to mourn the loss of a kind father.

His health failing him, his physicians sent him to Colorado in hopes of regaining his health, where he still continued a drug store successfully, trying every means to restore his health, without avail.

Although a thorough and careful business man, he had not yet given his heart to God.  The prayers of a mother followed him continually, and when told by his physicians that he had but a short time to live (his disease was consumption) his longing for home, and to see his mother once more was so great that with his family and a brother he started on a journey of 2,000 miles.  Weak and exhausted he reached his home, died the ninth day after. He says, “Mother, I have not seen you in ten years, and I have come all this way to died with you, and now I want you to pray with me.”  It was a great trial, but the Lord was present in great power.  He exclaimed, “Now the Lord has lifted the burden off my soul, and I am happy!”  The morning of his death he asked his step-father to pray, and all gathering around his bed united in prayer;   he said it was the happiest day of his life.  For months he had been trying to give himself to the Lord, and now he shouted his praises aloud, entreating of a brother, who was holding him up in bed, to give his heart to Jesus and commence to pray  then exclaiming with joy beaming from his countenance, “religion is a grand and glorious thing, and regretting that he had not spent his whole life in serving God.”  Thus died an affectionate and dutiful son.  God be praised, he does and will still continue to answer the prayers of his people.  Mothers, continue to pray.              M. CROUTER

KILLED AT NEWBURGH - G. FRED HILL, ONE OF NEWBURGH’S MOST PROMINENT CITIZENS, INSTANTLY KILLED BY TRAIN

The news of the sudden death of one of Newburgh’s popular citizens was a severe shock to the villagers early on Tuesday morning, when it was learned that Fred Hill had been instantly killed while walking on the Canadian National tracks at Newburgh.

The supposition is that Mr. Hill, who was in night attire when found, had left his home, which is near the track, and walked on the track towards the station while asleep.  It is also thought that he was struck by the fast Ottawa-Toronto train, which does not stop at Newburgh, and, as this train was late on the morning of the accident, it would have passed through Newburgh about the time the accident happened.

Deceased, who was in his early fifties, was one of Newburgh’s most prominent and popular citizens, and his untimely demise is sincerely regretted by old and young, as well as by a host of friends throughout the County.  Mr. Hill was a member of Newburgh Board of Education, Warden in the Anglican Church, and a member of the Masonic Order.

Besides his wife, he leaves three daughters and one son to mourn the loss of a kind and loving husband and father.  One brother, Mr. Wm. Hill, of Toronto, and two sisters, also survive.

The sad death occurred on Tuesday night, October 3rd, 1922, at his father’s home, Camden East, of James Leo Hinch, third son of James Hinch.  In spite of loving care and attention, he grew gradually weaker.  During his illness he was continually cheered and comforted by his many friends for whom he always had a welcome smile.  He was born July 19th, 1886, and his early demise at the age of 36 years, leaves its desolute sting in the hearts of his relatives who cannot yet realize that they will see him no more.  The funeral took place on Friday morning to the Church of St. Anthony of Padua, where a solemn Requiem Mass was sung for the repose of his soul, by Rev. Father MacCarthy.  He leaves besides his aged father, two sisters, Mrs. John Gehan and Mrs. Chas Ingoldsby, and two brothers, Peter and Matthew, to mourn his death.

When but a lad he, with his brother Joseph, served an apprenticeship with Mr. John Gibbard, of this town, and together for a time, they made fanning mills in Camden, and then Thomas carried on the business alone. He bought a farm near the old homestead, and on the 27th Feb., 1849, was married to Mary M. Quigley, daughter of the late Ogden Quigley, by whom he had eight children, one of whom died in infancy.

He was again married to Mrs. Mary A.E. Shephard on May 20th, 1891, who also survives him.

For a number of years deceased was a member of the Church of England, but in his later days he became a member of the Methodist church, and passed away leaning with implicit confidence on the Saviour whom in his hours of pain and trial he had learned to love and trust most fully. He was a member of the Masonic body, and a staunch Conservative. Deceased was a strong, rugged man until about five years ago when he had a slight stroke, since which time he had never been strong, and for the past three years had been almost a constant sufferer, notwithstanding the tender care and ministrations of his wife and family.

Charles R. Hoover – Going about town in his usual health on Thursday, retiring for the night about 10 o’clock, and being overtaken by a stroke of paralysis from which he never regained consciousness up to the time of his death on Saturday was the fate of Charles Ruttan Hoover.  The late Mr. Hoover was born in the township of North Marysburgh 75 years ago.  He married a daughter of the late Thomas Waring and to them one child, Mrs. Charles H. Rogers of London, Ont., was born.  Mr. Hoover followed the occupation of farming and was considered a successful man.  Of late years he has been living retired in Picton.  He was of a very sociable disposition, fond of the company of his friends and was ever a prominent and welcome companion among them.  Besides his widow and daughter he leaves to mourn, two sisters, Mrs. Jaspar Dingman of Picton, and Mrs. David Bradshaw of Foxboro.  Mr. Hoover was a staunch conservative in politics, and adherent to the First Methodist Church and although he never sought public office, it was his pleasure to sit as a member of the high school board for some nine years and out of respect for him the flag of the school was at half mast.  The funeral took place on Monday.  Rev. J. J. Rae and Rev. W.L. Armitage conducted a private service for the family at two o’clock and owing to Mr. Rae being called out of town by the afternoon train Mr. Armitage conducted the public service at three o’clock.  The funeral was largely attended and by most of the prominent business men.  The bearers were: Mr. Samuel Ellis, Mr. Thomas Walmsley, Mr. Nelson Ballie, Mr. Amos Baker, Mr. W.

ROBERT HORD -  Passed from earth to his heavenly inheritance January 28th, 1885, and was buried on the 30th of the same month, in sure and certain hope of a joyful resurrection through our Lord Jesus Christ.  The subject of this obituary was born in London township, and from childhood was placed under religious influences.  He did not, however, unite with the Church, until in the fall of 1879, under the labors of the Rev. J. E. Moore, in a revival meeting in the village of Komoka.  Our dear departed brother kept a general store in Komoka for eighteen years, and was post-master at the time of his death.  He did much for the moral, religious, and educational interests of the vicinity in which he lived.  The Methodist Church in Komoka stands as a  memorial of his energy and usefulness.  As a Christian, a society steward, and a member of the Trustee Board he is missed.  His house was a welcome home for the servants of God.  Revs. S.S. Weaver and A. Kaniman were given a home gratuitously - in fact, his liberality was almost unbounded.  His funeral sermon was preached by the Rev. J.E. Moore, his pastor, from the words, “Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his,”  to a very large audience, which gave evidence of the very high esteem in which he was held by the neighborhood in which he had been a public benefactor.  Brother Hord leaves a widow and seven children, besides a large circle of influential friends to mourn their loss.  May we meet him in the  “better land.”

Obituary - John Horner - of Hayburn, passed suddenly away at the home of his son, Mr. John Horner, Adolphustown, on July 15th. Deceased was apparently in good health, and though he had been poorly all winter was helping his son with his hay harvest. The cause of death was evidently heart failure, as he retired to bed in good spirits, and in a few minutes, before help could be called by his wife, had gone. He leaves besides his widow, three sons and two daughters; John in Adolphustown, George at Hayburn and another in Irondequoit, N.Y.; one daughter in Toronto and Mrs. Bailey, 3d concession. Mr. Horner and family came to this country from England about twenty-four years ago and settled on Henry Allison's farm as tenants. The family have lived near here since.

MRS. JOHN HORNER – Sudden indeed did the Angel of Death take one from our midst.  The call came to a much respected neighbor and friend, in the person of Mrs. John Horner, of Adolphustown, on Wednesday, May 3d.  Mrs. Horner was seriously ill only a few days and very few of her friends knew of her illness, her death coming as a very severe shock to all.  The deceased was the daughter of Mr. John Furse, being the youngest (only 32 years of age) of a large family.  Three sisters and three brothers remain, besides her aged father, all of whom were present to pay their last respects.  She also leaves behind a sorrowing husband and a little daughter about three years of  age.  She will be sadly missed in the home circle by all, and more especially by her aged father, to whom she has been untiring in her devotion during his serious illness of the past four weeks.  The neighbors also regret her departure to the better world as her pleasant manner won her many friends.  But we must remember that we may all meet again if we so wish as a Home in Heaven is given to all who seek it through our Lord Jesus Christ.  The funeral took place on Friday last at 1 o’clock, the services being held at the house, conducted by Rev. Mr. Thomas and was largely attended.  The remains were placed in the U.E.L. Methodist cemetery.

Obituary – The funeral of the late Mrs. E. E. Horsey (nee Miss Emma Moxon), took place last Thursday afternoon at Kingston.  The service was conducted by Canon Loucks assisted by Rev. R S. Forneri, and was attended by Mrs. Horsey’s near relatives, including her father, Mr. John Moxon,  ---  Herbert and Miss Mary Moxon of Picton, Dr. and Mrs. Elliott of Chesaning, Mich.,  A. J. Moxon of Binghampton, N.Y., and Mrs. Pearsoll of Toronto.  Among the many beautiful floral tributes were noticed two little bunches of flowers brought by two of the little ones in her infant class at St. Luke’s Sunday school where she had been a successful and much loved teacher.  Though always frail, her death came as a great shock to all her friends, for she had been feeling unusually well and was preparing to move from her house on Frontenac Street.  On Monday, the day of her death, she had been out both in the afternoon and evening and retired about 9:30 p.m. apparently quite well. About ten o’clock she awakened her husband as she was suffocating.  Mr. Horsey summoned their neighbor to stay with his wife while he brought the nearest doctor, as the telephone did not act properly.  While he was away the few minutes necessary to go two blocks, she became unconscious and in that state passed away, the attack having only lasted in all about 30 minutes.  The remains lie in the family plot at Glenwood.

Death of an Old Resident

There died in Napanee on Monday last one of its oldest residents, Mrs. John Hosey,  who came to this town in the year 1812, and has resided here since that time. having been born on the 19th of July, 1781, she was in her ninety-fourth year, and to the very last moment, the stirring scenes in that remote period of the history of Canada were fresh in her memory and her clear remembrance of the excitements of the War of Independence and the particular incidents connected with it of local importance were always listened to with intense interest. When she and her husband removed to Napanee, there were but two stores, a tavern and two or three residences, and she lived to see it spring from this small hamlet into one of the most flourishing and prosperous towns in the Dominion. Thus one by one the connecting ties that bind the stirring events of those remote times with the present are being snapped by the unsparing hand of Death.

JOHN N. HOUGH 1842-1917 -- The subject of this obituary was born on Lot 1, in the 4th Concession of North Fredericksburgh original in the year 1842. He lived and died on the above mentioned old homestead, having passed away on January 1st, 1917, at the age of 74 years, 8 months. John N. Hough was a highly respected and widely known citizen in these parts. He took an interest in the political affairs of the country, and was for his lifetime, a staunch Conservative, but was liberal minded in his views. He was a councillor in the municipality for a number of years and a Justice of the Peace since 1905. In religion he was a life-long Methodist and a member of the same for upwards of forty years. As an active member of the Church he has filled the office of Class Leader, S.S. Superintendent, Steward, Recording Steward, and was a trustee of the Gretna Church at the time it was built. He was a regular and faithful attendant of the means of grace and a supporter of the Church in every way, both spiritually and financially. In business, he was honest, industrious and economical and succeeded where many would have failed. In the home he was so appreciated that here more than any other place his absence will be most keenly felt. During his protracted illness he manifested great patience and cheerfulness, and endured everything without a murmur. He leaves to mourn his loss two brothers and two sisters, viz., Wm. H. Hough, St. Catharines, Charles W. and Maria Hough on the homestead; Mrs. J. A. Ronson, Toronto. Everything possible was done to add to his comfort during his sickness, and in this respect, his nephew, Bismark Edgar, was especially kind. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. W. S. Boyce and Rev. C. W. DeMille, in the Gretna Church on Thursday, January 4th , where a great number of sympathizing friends and acquaintances came to pay their last respects to an honored citizen. The remains were placed in the vault of Riverside cemetery. The friends have the sympathy of the entire neighborhood. And so of John N. Hough, it can truly be said, "He rests from his labours and his works do follow him."
