Obituary - Marshall Bidwell Ingersoll - a native, and for many years a well known resident of the Township of South Fredericksburgh, died at his residence in Regina, N.W.T., last week of paralysis, aged about 65 years. Having spent all his early days on the farm where he was born and raised, near Conway, he went to the North West over twenty years ago and became one of the pioneer settlers at Regina, where he spent the remainder of his days. The body passed through here on Thursday last, to be buried in the Adolphustown churchyard, beside the grave of his wife, who was a daughter of the late Rev. M. Harding, so many years Rector of Adolphustown and Fredericksburgh. She predeceased him a good many years. The Ingersoll family was among the oldest of the U.E. Loyalists in this county and a large number of its members were well known residents of Fredericksburgh at one time, but not one of the name is now left in the country, we believe.

MRS. ROBERT JACKSON – NAPANEE – Dec 15 – The sudden death of Mrs. Robert Jackson, 79, of Morven, at the home of her son, John, at Bath Saturday came as a shock to friends and relatives as she was believed to be in good health.  The funeral was held at the St. Thomas church in Morven yesterday afternoon to Morven Cemetery with Rev. S. Walker and Ven. Archdeacon R. J. Dumbrille officiating at the service.

Until four years ago, the deceased had lived on a farm in Morven for over 40 years, and since that time had been living with her daughter, Mrs. Claude Knight of Napanee.  Formerly Emma Louise Irvine, she leaves one son, John, at Bath, and three daughters, Mrs. C.

THE LATE MRS. ROBERT JACKSON – The sudden death of Mrs. Robert Jackson occurred last Saturday at the home of her son, John Jackson, Bath, where she had gone a few days before to spend a short time.  Mrs. Jackson, since the death of her husband, about five years ago, had made her home in Napanee with her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Claude H. Knight.  When she left town last Thursday, to spend the week-end at the home of her son, she was apparently in her usual state of good health., On Saturday morning, when she failed to rise at her usual time and when members of the family went to her room they found she had passed away.  Later in the day her body was brought to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Knight in Napanee and on Monday afternoon a short service was conducted at the house by Rev. L. G. Osborne-Walker of Bath and Archdeacon Dumbrille of Napanee, after which a public service was held at St. Thomas Church at Morven, followed by burial at Morven Cemetery.

Mrs. Jackson, who before her marriage was Emma Louise Irwin, was born in England about 79 years ago.  She was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Irwin, who came to Canada when Mrs. Jackson was about seven years of age and settled at Milton, Ontario.

Mr. and Mrs. Jackson were married at Milton and came to Morven about 45 years ago, where they farmed until Mr. Jackson’s death.  Mrs. Jackson was an active member of St. Thomas Anglican Church at Morven and was especially interested in the work of the Women’s auxiliary.

Mrs. Jackson leaves three daughters Mrs. C. H. Knight, Napanee, Mrs. Reta Vanalstine, St. Catharines, and Mrs. W. J. Tompkins, Alberta, and one son, John, at Bath.

The pall-bearers at the funeral were Messrs Harry Spence, Lawrence Chadwick, Debert Snider, Harold Brandon, Matthew Shetlor and Luke Young.

In the early morn of the 4th day of April, 1929, in her eightieth year, there passed to her reward M. J. Booth, loved wife of I. S. Jackson, and daughter of the late Wm. Booth, who emigrated from Ireland in the early forties of the last century, and settled near the Village of Roblin, in early days known as Spencer’s Mills, where the subject of this sketch was born.  Early converted to God in a revival held under the administration of the late J. T. Clark, of the old M. E. church.  She lived her whole life in the Township of Richmond, a truly exemplary Christian life, one truly devoted to her Saviour.  While not caring for too great an activity in too many church organizations her religion was a profound and lasting one, of all the essentials of a Christ-like life.  Her home and duty thereof were her palace.  She was always ready to help those in need and it was her delight to live a quiet unpretentious exemplary Christian life, fully resigned when the end came.  She leaves to mourn, her husband and two daughters, Mrs. T. J. Russell and Mrs. Wilbert Winter, both of Empey Hill, and two sons, Gardiner Wilson, near Selby, and Wm. Edwin on the homestead.  May she rest in peace.

ELIZABETH JACQUES - Elizabeth, relict of the late Thomas Jacques, and whose maiden name was Graham, was born in Fermanagh, Ireland, in 1828;  was united in marriage to her late husband in 1853, came to Canada in 1854, and settled in the township of Arran, where they lived till death terminated their mortal career.  They were brought up to the English Church, but some twenty-seven years ago experienced renewing grace in a protracted meeting held at Mount Hope, on this (Arkwright) circuit.  They at once united with the Methodist Church, of which they remained devoted members until death.  Sister Jacques was remarked for her affable manner, her kindly disposition, her mental activity, her tender affection as a wife mother, and friend, and her self-forgetfulness to oblige others.  To the writer she, in her last illness, spoke of how great was her attachment to the public worship of God, and especially the class meeting.  In the first of her illness - which was congestion of the lungs, and was very brief - she said “her acceptance with God was not so clear as she would like - that there were shadows between her and the Saviour. “  But, thank God, for several hours before her death, which occurred Jan. 5th, 1885, the true light shone upon her soul, the shadows fled, and she quietly fell asleep in Jesus.  May the surviving and sorrowing family so live that they may have a happy meeting on the other side the river.  [signed]  W.W.L.

The Late Mr. Alex. Jayne

Mr. Alex. Jane, elder son of the late Mr. and Mrs. James A. Jayne, passed away on Saturday evening, January 30, 1937 in Kingston General Hospital.  Although ill with pneumonia for six weeks, his physicians still held out hopes for his recovery, so his sudden death came as a shock to his relatives and friends.

Alex. was of a cheerful disposition.  His smiling countenance and humorous expressions won for him a good many friends in Adolphustown, where he formerly resided and in the Napanee district.

Besides the bereaved wife, he leaves to mourn his loss, one brother, Mr. John Jayne, Camden East and five sisters, Mrs. C. Kellar, Deseronto Rd., Mrs. W. E. Nolan, Hay Bay, Mrs. William McConnell and the Misses Electa and Etta Jayne, of Sharp’s Corners.

The funeral service, which was held at his residence, a short distance north of Napanee was well attended by neighbours and friends.  His pastor, Rev. W. E. L. Smith, who had visited him during his illness consoled the bereaved friends with his comforting message, while Mr. Ward Wartman sang by request “Some Day We’ll Understand.”  Then the funeral cortege proceeded on its way to Riverview Cemetery, where interment was made in the family plot.  The pall-bearers were Messrs Bidwell, Kimmett, Geo Sampson, James McCaren, Charles Vanalstyne, Bruce Calder and Grant Cook.

(nee Thompson)

 

Obituary - Mrs. Jas. A. Jayne - On Wednesday morning, August 24th, 1927, Mrs. Jas. a. Jayne passed peacefully away at her home, Sharp's Corners, in her eighty-fourth year.

Mrs. Jayne was a daughter of the late Mr. Alexander Thompson, and spent her girlhood days a short distance north of Napanee. Later in life after her marriage to Mr. Jas. a. Jayne, she and her husband resided in Richmond, North Fredericksburgh, and twenty-three years in Adolphustown. Then in need of care during her declining years, they moved to Sharp's Corners, where they resided with their two daughters.

The deceased was widely known and had a great many friends. The friendships formed years ago remained with her throughout a life time. She was very thoughtful towards the poor. Years ago, when there were a great many people in needy help throughout the county, she always met them with a kind word, and, with the co-operation of her husband, did all she could to comfort and provide them with the necessities of life. She will be greatly missed in the home. Her memory shall ever be cherished by her loved ones, as a patient wife and a kind mother.

During her illness of several years duration, she was given the best medical attention and care. For several years there seemed to be little change in her frail constitution, but last Spring it became evident to the family that her condition was becoming more serious, and she could not be with them much longer.

The late Mrs. Jayne had been a member of the Methodist (United) Church for years, but  being of a quiet and reserved disposition, she will be remembered as a Christian lady, not as much by her profession, as from her daily walk through life. During the last weeks of her illness she was drawn closer to her Saviour. Her husband and family will never forget her last words to them, "I'm going Home", as she roused in her dying hour. Very soon she left all sickness and care behind, and went "Home" to join the loved ones who have passed on before.

"Home! Home!, Safe, safe at Home! There's no friend like Jesus - He leads ius gently Home."

Besides an aged and sorrowing husband, she leaves to mourn her loss, five daughters and two sons, Mrs. C. Kellar, Deseronto Road;  Mr. Alex. Jayne, Richmond; Mrs. W.B. Nolan, Hay Bay; Mr. John Jayne, Camden East; Mrs. Wm. McConnell and Misses Electa and Etta Jayne, Sharp's Corners.

The impressive funeral service held at the (Methodist) United church, Selby, conducted by her Pastor, Rev. J. Batstone, assisted by Rev. T.H.P. Anderson, was attended by several friends from a distance. The pallbearers were relatives of the deceased and her body was laid to rest in Riverview cemetery, beneath the beautiful flowers that covered her grave, to await the coming of her Saviour on the Resurrection Morn.

JANE AUSTIN JEFFREY -

In Winnipeg, August 26th, while visiting her daughter, Mrs. Hunt, Mrs. M. Jeffrey, of Plympton, Man., died after a few days’ illness. She was born in County Down, Ireland, September 23rd, 1826 her maiden name being Austin. February 21st, 1847, she married Mr. M. Jeffrey, with whom she emigrated the same year to the township of Fitzroy, County Carleton, Ont., where were born to them three sons and four daughters, and where they buried one son and two daughters.  After a residence there of twenty eight years they removed to the township of Plympton, Man., where Mrs. J. enjoyed the distinction of being the first lady settler.  Here they prospered, and had all the comforts of an Ontario home.  We rejoice to be able to record more than mere earthly prosperity.  Though the subject of this notice, with her husband, had been brought up as Presbyterians, they had not experienced the new birth until 1862 in a revival conducted by Revs. Case, Hayhurst and Gable, they were both converted to God, and joined the Methodist Church, of which they have since been honored members.  Mrs. J. was intensely religious; placing her Christian duties in the forefront, she sought to “crown Christ Lord of all,” the realm of her affection and ambition, and became, what seems to be unusual here, a breakwater against the all-whelming tide of worldliness.

The family altar through all these years has been the sheet-anchor of their home religion in every storm.  When her husband was absent, though diffident and retiring, yet in loyalty to her Master the family Bible was taken down, and the family and others, if present, were regularly and devoutly led in their devotions.  When through “often infirmities” in later years she could rarely be induced to leave her home for other purposes, yet more rarely could she be induced to stay at home from the means of grace.  In the class meeting which she loved, her rich, ripe testimony to the goodness of God and the sufficiency of his grace betokened frequent and close communion with God.

The enterprise and liberality of this family, and their love to Methodism, largely led to the formation of Plympton Methodist Mission.

Theirs was the home of our first missionaries.  The body of the deceased was removed to her late residence, Aug. 27th, and on the 28th, a large concourse of friends from the city and surrounding townships assembled to sadly commit her body to its resting place in Sunnyside cemetery.  A sorrowing husband, two daughters and a son survive and deeply mourn their loss, but brightly anticipate a blissful reunion in the better country.

A sermon full of consolation and Christian hope and triumph was preached from the favorite Psalm xxiii of the deceased by her pastor,

Mr. Jewell was well known for the excellence of his workmanship. Many homes and buildings in the town contain examples of his work. Some years ago, Mr. Jewell was a member of the Town council and to honor his memory, the flag on the town hall was flown at half mast, following  his death.

for many years Mr. Jewell was a member of the Oddfellows Order and the Masonic Lodge.

Died - In Hallowell, on Tuesday, the 17th instant, Flora Helen, wife of Mr. Joseph Johnson,

and daughter of the Rev. George Sills of Fredericksburgh, aged 22 years the 2nd of September next.  The subject of this memoir was awakened to her lost estate, at the first Camp Meeting held in Adolphustown;  and in a prayer meeting a few days after, while pleading with God in prayer of the blessing of pardon, God in mercy, spoke peace to her soul.  She immediately connected herself with the Methodist Episcopal Church, and has since that period given satisfactory evidence of the genuineness of her character.  She has found through all the vicissitudes of this life, the Religion of Jesus Christ to be her support and comfort - and that God who had supported her in the hour of trial, difficulty and affliction, did not forsake her in the hour of death.  When reduced by affliction and approaching the verge of Eternity, the triumphs of Christianity shone in all their splendor.  She experienced and enjoyed the faith and patience of the saints. - could talk of death and Eternity with the confidence of an apostle, when he said, "I have a desire to depart, I have fought the good fight."  A few hours previous to her departure, she called to her bed side, a neighbor for whom she felt much esteem, and after exhorting him to seek the Lord, she asked him, "now neighbor S---- will you set out and serve the Lord?"  Upon his answering in the affirmative, she said, "One thing more,"  "will you pray in your family?"  Upon his hesitating to comply with her request, she earnestly repeated the solicitation, and appeared unwilling to leave him without a positive answer.  He at length replied that he would, upon which, with a voice that astonished all present, she cried out, "Glory, glory, glory."  She then gave directions respecting her funeral, and observing her friends weeping, she said, "weep not for me, for I am going to glory."  She requested them to lay her out plain and decent, and not to shed a tear at her bed side, or at the grave;  she then requested all present to pray and praise God, "bid all my friends farewell,"  said she,  "and tell my youngest brother to set out and prepare to meet me in glory."  A few moments before she expired, she said, "lay me straight, I am going to Glory," and then without a sigh, struggle, or groan, fell asleep in her blessed Redeemer.

A funeral discourse on this solemn and interesting occasion, was preached by the Rev. T. Bevitt, from Revelation 14th chap. 13th verse, "And I heard a voice from Heaven saying unto me, write, blessed are the dead which die in the Lord, from Henceforth, Yea, saith the spirit that they may rest from their labours and their works shall follow them"  a text which she selected for that purpose.

The writer of this memoir, is well aware of his inability to do justice to the deceased, or her surviving friends, Not being present at her death, and having collected a few only of her dying expressions, he is obliged to leave out many, which was truly interesting and encouraging, and highly characteristic of the blessedness of her state.  Here is sufficient, however, for him to say, let the Sceptic doubt, and let the Infidel mock, but let me "die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his."

JOHNSON – At Adolphustown, on Sunday, Nov 5, Helen Catherine Johnson, aged 48 years and 11 months.

 

A very sad event occurred at the home of the late Thomas Trumpour, Adolphustown, Nov. 5th, when his only daughter Helen, wife of J. Johnson, departed this life on her journey to the better land.  She had been suffering for some time with cancer in the stomach, and finally, she whom we had learned to love for her patient and pure life, was called to her final rest on Sunday evening Nov. 5th at 9 o’clock.  The deceased was one of our best known and respected citizens.  She enjoyed a large circle of acquaintances and she was loved and held in the highest esteem by all who knew her.  The removal of such a life from our midst leaves a vacancy and a shadow that is deeply realized by her many friends in this community, but while we mourn the loss we have sustained, we humbly submit to the will of our Father, who has taken her away.  Our loss is her gain, for a beautiful life never ends in death.  Her life’s work is done, she has passed to her final rest and while tender memories of her virtues linger, we trust that the star that is gone, the light of whose going makes our night, makes somewhere else a day for her. The funeral was held at the U.E.L. Episcopal church, where a very impressive service was conducted by the Rev. Canon Roberts.  A large procession of relatives and friends escorted the remains to the church after which the remains were taken to Napanee and placed in the vault.  The people of this place and vicinity extend to the bereaved family their deepest sympathy in this their sad hour of affliction.  While their home is made desolate by the shadow of death, our community has been deprived of a most faithful friend and an honest Christian worker.

DIED - At Ernest town, on Thursday evening the 10th inst. WILLIAM JOHNSTON, Esquire, late Colonel of the Addington Militia, aged 84 years, ten months, and ten days.  He was one of the first settlers in this Country after the American Revolution;  and has since resided in this place.  His Loyalty to His King and attachment to his country were strong traits in his character;  having served his Majesty faithfully for 60 years;  and during that period through three wars.  He was at the reduction of Canada in the years 59 and 60 and two succeeding wars;  he had many highly valuable qualities - a kind friend a generous benefactor, and the poor was never known to go empty away from his hospitable door;  he will be much lamented by all his friends and acquaintance; but those more intimately acquainted with him will long, very long, regret the loss of their inestimable friend

WILLIAM H. JOHNSTON -  Was born in Peel township, county of Wellington, in the year 1852, and died at his home on June 4th, 1885.  He was converted when a youth of seventeen or eighteen, from which event he lived a devoted and consistent life until the Lord took him.  About the latter part of the winter of 1884, during a revival service held by Revs. Sherlock and Kennedy, he sought and found the blessing of perfect love; he consecrated his all fully to the Lord and entered into the rest of faith.  From that point his Christian character was marked by a steady and rapid development, as a result of his devotion to God and zeal for his glory.  He found a helpmeet in his Christian life and work in one Miss E. Watson, to whom he was united in marriage on July 9th, 1884, and who is now so shortly called upon to mourn their separation.  But it is only for a time.  She is being comforted by divine grace and a hope of heaven.  Brother Johnston was one of our most promising men.  Rising rapidly in the esteem and confidence of his brethren, and being a man of rather more than ordinary ability, he was appointed to several positions of usefulness and responsibility, the last of which was a place on the local preachers’ plan by the Official Board at its last meeting before he died.  The Church anticipated many years of useful service from him, but her great Head has ordered it otherwise.  We bow in submission and say, “Thy will be done.”

Extract of a letter, dated Ernest Town, Wednesday morning, 2 o’clock, Feb. 17th, 1819

Mr. James W. Jones expected to have been in town on Saturday, but repeated disappointments prevented him.  Last night he went up to the widow Williams’s (about 3 miles above the village) intending to remain there until the morning, then to take a horse from thence and go down to Kingston.  About 12 o’clock, I was waked by  shrieks of some one passing my window, calling to me something (I know not what) about fire.  As I opened my eyes, I perceived the room brightly lighted, and, at first, thought it must be our own house enveloped in flame.  I sprang from bed, and saw, from the window, Mr. Jones’s house covered with sheets of fire.  The same moment, his daughter, Julia (about  12 years of age) opened the kitchen door, and told us her mother was in the house.  We ran over.  The front part of the house shewed no fire.  Mr. Wilcox caught a board, burst open the door, and stepped to enter, when the upper floor came down with a dreadful crash, and a volume of smoke and flame, bursting out, drove him back.  The building was now enclosed in an awful conflagration, and we were forced to stand by, and gaze on the scene, silent, awe-struck and inactive.  Julia says, they went to bed about 9 o’clock.  She and a little sister, a year or two old, slept with her mother, in the bed room at the end of the front room.  Her mother put two or three green sticks and some kindling wood into the stove.  She was waked by her mother, standing by the bed side, screaming to her; pointing to the kitchen filled with flame, and exclaiming, “see the fire!”  She opened the kitchen door, to try if she could get to her little daughters in the other bed room;  and, at the same time, told Julia to spring out of the window, which she did.  She saw her mother shut the kitchen door, and thinks she threw something over the window, as if to keep the air from drawing through.  But perhaps it was smoke.  At all events, she turned to take the child from the bed.  Julia ran round to the window of the room, where her other two sisters slept, but the flame prevented her from entering or looking in;  and when she returned to the front window, she could see nothing of her mother.

We can now distinguish Mrs. Jones’s remains lying near where the bed stood;  but have not yet attempted to remove them.  The scene is dreadful.  I never witnessed any event, which cast so heavy a gloom over my feelings.

Obituary - Another of the old landmarks has been removed from the Anderson Methodist church, Bay Circuit, in the death on Wednesday, February 19th, 1913, of Mr. James Joyce. He was born June 10th, 1827, about one mile east of this late home where he came with his parents when about eight years old. His father and mother came from County Down, Ireland, about the year 1820. A much prized heirloom in possession of Mr. J.M. Joyce, son of deceased, is a certificate of transfer of membership from L.O.L. of County Down, Ireland, No. 65, dated 1820, showing he was a member of the Orange Order with the degree of Royal Arch Purple Marksman and signed by Joseph Johnston, Master and Thos. Hughs, Secretary. Deceased was also for many years a member of the Order, showing the family have for a long time been identified with Orangeism.

He was in his eighty-sixth year, and enjoying his usual good health until a few days before death, when he took la grippe, which rapidly developed pneumonia. His physician, Dr. Vrooman, was called, but from the first held out little hope of his recovery. Mr. Joyce was a loyal citizen , in politics, a Conservative, and interested in all matters concerning the public good. An upright man, possessed of a kindly winning disposition, he won and held the confidence of both old and young. He was a consistent member and a liberal supporter of the Methodist church, loyal to his pastor, and ready to assist any worthy social or church enterprise. He was converted early in life, had a deep reverence for the House of God, was regular in attendance at all its services, and showed that the Spirit of the Master had become deeply wrought in his character. He had been for many years Treasurer of the Trustee Board of Anderson church, and a member of the Quarterly Board of the Bay Circuit. During his last illness he expressed to his Pastor his abiding faith in God and trust in his Saviour. He retained consciousness until the last, and a few minutes before death, looking up, he seemed to see his Saviour coming, and raised his hands as if trying to go to meet Him.

He was a kind and indulgent father, a loving husband, and as the responsible head of his home, he tried to order his house after God's plan. Firm but kind with his children, they will surely rise up and call him blessed. His wife predeceased him about six years, and his four sons and three daughters survive.

The funeral took place on Saturday, Feb. 22nd, leaving his late residence at 1 p.m., service in Anderson Methodist church. His Pastor, Rev. Geo. Nickle, preached from the text Eccl. 7:1 "A good name is better than precious ointment, and the day of death than the day of one's birth." Revds. J.P. Wilson, Chairman of the District, J.W. Down, Selby, and W.D.P. Wilson, Wilton, were present, and spoke words of high praise and personal appreciation of the deceased. The remains were placed in the vault at Morven cemetery.

Obituary - Miss Marjorie Joyce

On Friday afternoon last the funeral service of the late Marjorie Joyce called forth warmest expressions of sincerest sympathy and regret and floral offerings of great beauty and profusion testified to the large circle that shared a common sorrow.

Marjorie was born in North Fredericksburgh, more than twenty years ago. Later, sojourning in Napanee, she studied in the Collegiate, and was greatly beloved for her genial social qualities. She delighted to help in the activities of Grace church, of which she was a member. She joined in the work of the Choir, and gladly assisted in whatever work was in the interest of the children and young people.

In her second year of energetic training at the Rochester Homeopathic Hospital, she came home on leave. Her fellow workers write much about her ability, and acceptability. The rest cure not proving immediately effective, she spent a short time in the Mowat Hospital at Kingston. For the last eight months she dwelt happily with her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. J.M. Joyce, in a  beautiful, new cottage, among the fragrant pines at Bancroft. Her sister, Jessie, came home, and gladly gave unremitting care. On the evening of Tuesday, March 31st, the long, patient fight came to an end that was peace.

The brothers, Sheldon and Arthur, returned from Rochester, and the remains were brought from Bancroft. At the funeral service, held at the home, on Robert St., on Friday, April 3rd, by request Mr. Wiseman and Miss Green sang "When Night is Near". The Pastor, Rev. A.J. Terrill, spoke feelingly of the zest of living, of the considerateness of others, and the high courage that continued to the earthly end, and in which she showed Christian fortitude. The remains were laid to rest in Riverside cemetery.

The young people of the community, by whom she has been much respected, have been deeply moved by this decease. Especial sympathy is felt for the family because of the recent death of Mrs. Baird, the mother of Mrs. Joyce.

Gone to Rest

The subject of this sketch, Marjorie Jane Baird, the beloved wife of James Joyce, of North Fredericksburgh, departed this life in great peace, on Sunday March 10th, 1907. Her ancestors were numbered among the pioneers of this old historic County, her father having been Samuel Baird, and her revered mother's maiden name was Cynthia Shibley, both of whom have long since crossed the bourne. The deceased was born in Ernesttown, near the village of Bath, in the year 1829, and had she lived sixteen days longer she would have attained her 78th year. She was married to her now sorrowing husband on April 2d, 1850. So they lived in happy wedded life for nearly 57 years. Their union was blessed with four sons and three daughters who all survive and rise up to call their sainted mother blessed. The honored sons are Samuel James, William, John M. and Sheldon. the devoted daughters are Mrs. Rev. T.H. Richard, Mrs. T.A. Percy, who has been for some years a widow, and Mrs. Cartwright Hawley. Our translated friend was converted to God in early life under the ministry of Rev. Sheldon Young of sacred memory. She united in fellowship with the M.E. church shortly after her conversion, and was a loyal and devoted member at the Anderson appointment on the Bay circuit, when her Lord and Master said, "It is enough, come up higher." There never was any special enterprise to be promoted in the church of her choice, in which she did not have a hand, and the various means of grace were to her a constant delight. She was visited with a slight stroke some four years ago, from the effects of which she never recovered. About mid-summer she was taken worse and gradually wasted away until she quietly fell asleep in Jesus, on the last hour of the holy Sabbath the day she loved so well. She has gone to be where her much loved Sabbath days will never end. The funeral which took place on Wednesday, March 13th, was large and representative. A very touching and effective memorial service was held in the Anderson Methodist church at 1.30 p.m. The church was beautifully draped and decorated, the floral display being very fine. Her pastor, Rev. J.W. Down, preached a sermon of great pathos and power, from the text; "If a man die shall he live again; all the days of my appointed time will I wait until my change comes." Her remains will rest in the City of the silent at Morven, until she has a part in the first resurrection.

Obituary - Mr. Sheldon Young Joyce

Sheldon Y. Joyce, for many years a resident of Napanee, passed away Tuesday evening, November 27th, 1928, at his late residence, corner of Bridge and Adelphi Streets. His death was a great shock to all.

Mr. Joyce was at active business as usual on the Saturday immediately preceding his death, but not feeling well and it may be that he did not realize how serious his condition was. He enjoyed the best of health during his life until a few months ago after which he complained of not feeling as well as usual.

He did not know the seriousness of his condition until Sunday afternoon, November 25th, when he obtained medical advice. A sudden turn for the worse took place Monday evening, and he rapidly grew weaker and passed away Tuesday evening at 8.30 o'clock.

Mr. Sheldon Y. Joyce was the youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. James Joyce, and was born on May 30th, 1861, in North Fredericksburgh on the old homestead, near the Anderson Church, and he could well remember when that church was built. He spent his boyhood days in that neighbourhood and vicinity.

Mr. Joyce leaves to mourn his loss his widow, one daughter, and four sons, Mrs. Arnold W. Wylie, of Brampton; Mrs. Percy S. Joyce, of Hamilton; Mr. Zina J. Joyce and Mr. C. Dwight Joyce, of Toronto, and Mr. Sperry C. Joyce, of St. Mary's and five grandchildren; also one sister and two brothers; Mrs. Cartwright Hawley, Mr. William Joyce and Mr. John M. Joyce, all of Napanee.

Mr. Sheldon Y. Joyce was a member of the United Church, and a Conservative in his politics. He was highly respected in the community, and his passing will be severely felt by all.

The funeral was held at his late residence, on Friday afternoon at 2.30 o'clock, and was  conducted by Rev. Harry Pawson, of Trinity United Church. He was laid to rest in Riverside cemetery, by his four sons, son-in-law and brother.

The floral tributes from relatives and friends were lovely and numerous.

Obituary - The subject of this sketch, the late Mrs. Nelson Keech, nee Miss Victoria Joyce, was born March 1st, 1839, and entered into rest on Sunday, March 1st, 1914, being just 75 years of age. Her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Valentine Joyce, of Armah, Ireland, with three children, came to Canada about 1828. They settled in North Fredericksburgh and spent the remainder of life in that township, on the farm now occupied by their son, Mr. John Joyce. Nine more children were born in this country, one of whom was the subject of this memoir. Forty-five years ago she married her now sorrowing husband. Three sons, Melvin and Edwin, at home; James H., of North Fredericksburgh and Mrs. Charles Lowry, Newburgh, survive to mourn the loss of a kind and loving mother who sought to train her family up in the fear of the Lord. She was converted to God in early life, joined the Bethany Methodist church and has been a faithful attendant at the church services, especially enjoying the class and fellowship meetings, and always ready to help in any enterprise of the church. A good neighbor, a faithful wife, a kind mother. When quite young she won a small Bible as a prize given by the late Rev. Eli Woodcock to the child who learned the greatest number of Bible verses. To the last she highly prized this little token. Our departed sister was in her usual health, and in the early hours of the morning she awoke her sons and complained of a difficulty in breathing, which soon became distressing The doctor was at once called by phone, but in less than half an hour she passed away reclining in the arms of her son, Melvin. Her body was placed in the vault, to be later interred in the Bethany graveyard. Owing to a heavy snow storm, which blocked the roads, the funeral service was postponed until Sunday, March 8th, when the pastor, Rev. Geo. Nickle, conducted the service in Bethany Church. His text was taken from 1. John 4:8 and John 13-1. A large number of friends were present to express their sympathy with the family.

Kennedy,

Dr. Roderick

 

On March 15th , 1911, Dr. Roderick Kennedy, for many years a useful and highly respected citizen of Bath, passed peacefully away, in the General Hospital, Kingston. He was born at Cumberland House, on the Saskatchewan River, July 8th  1822 and was therefore in his 89th year. He was the youngest son of Alexander Kennedy, Chief Factor of the Hudson Bay Company, at Cumberland House. His brother, John was surgeon of the Hudson Bay Company at Fort Simpson on the Pacific Coast and represented the District of Nanaimo, in the first Parliament of British Columbia when Sir James Douglas was Governor. His brother, William, was a daring and skilful navigator in the northern seas. In 1854, when Lady Franklin fitted out an expedition to go in search of her husband, Sir John, she selected Captain William Kennedy to command the expedition in the ship Prince Albert. He spent the winters of 1854-5 in the Arctic Seas, and always believed that the expedition would have been successful in finding what became of Sir John Franklin and his comrades, but for the sad loss of Lieutenant Belat, who commanded the other ship, in an ice crevass. A third brother, George, carried on business for a number of years in the early days in Kingston.

Roderick, the subject of our sketch was sent when a boy to St. John's School at Fort Garry, on the Red River, now Winnipeg, where he received his early education. His father having died about this time, Sire George Simpson, Governor of the Company, became his friend and adviser.

When fourteen years of age he left the school at Fort Garry with a good elementary education received from those pioneer missionaries and teachers, whose memories he always cherished in grateful remembrance and journeyed to Hudson Bay from which place he took ship to London and then to the Orkney Islands. Here he spent a year of more at St. Margaret's Hope, the old home of his ancestors. He then went to Aberdeen, where he attended St. Andrew's College, preparing for his chosen profession. In 1839 he entered the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, Edinburgh, and after a distinguished course, graduated in 1844 L.R.C.P.S. Edin. In the same year Sir George Simpson appointed him Surgeon of the Hudson Bay Company at Moose Factory, on James Bay. Arriving in Montreal he started from Lachine early in the winter of 1844-5 with a Company of voyagers and on snow shoes journeyed all the way via Bytown to Moose Factory. Here he spent five years in the discharge of the duties of his office. In 1847 he married Mary, daughter of Governor McTavish, of the Hudson Bay Company, and widow of the late George Ross, Factor of the Hudson Bay Company at Moose Factory.
In 1850 Dr. Kennedy resigned his office in the Company, and with his family returned to Upper Canada by the same route that he had entered the north country six years previously, but this time the journey was *****************************Bath was then a growing **** prosperous place, pleasantly situated on the Bay of Quinte . Here he settled and began the practice of medicine, which continued without interruption for more than half a century. He had many long journeys by day and by night. However thin and treacherous the ice might be, or however rough the bay might be it made no difference. When the call came from Amherst Island of Prince Edward County, the doctor was ready. Had he been half as careful about dollars as he was about the welfare of his patients, the doctor might have been a rich man. He was a worthy example of a noble profession whose reward in the service they have rendered to suffering humanity.

Dr. Kennedy, in addition to his large practice, filled several positions of honor and trust. He was for several years Professor of Anatomy in the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, Kingston. He was a member of the Bath School Board and also of the Municipal and County Council. He was identified with the Reform party in politics, and in religion was a member of the Anglican Church.

Mrs. Kennedy died in 1886. She bore two sons and a daughter to the doctor. The daughter died in infancy. The sons are Dr. Alexander, of Amherst Island, and Roderick, Professor of Music.

Dr. Kennedy married Miss Mary Walkem, of Kingston, who also predeceased him. The Rev. Alexander Howard Kennedy, B.A., of Sommerville, near Boston, and Mr. Roderick Kennedy, of Portland, are sons of Dr. Alexander, who married Miss Howard, of Bath. She died a few years ago.

DEATH'S HARVEST - ANDREW A. KERR - Sunday morning, Nov. 17th  1901, Andrew A. Kerr, one of our esteemed citizens, died of Chronic Bright's disease at his late residence in North Marysburgh. Though a sufferer from the disease for about ten years he was able to manage his business, except for the last few months, when confined to his house the rapid change in his condition gave evidence that the end was not far distant. His illness and death were the cause of deep regret among his friends, many of whom cherished fond hopes of his recovery during several years after the symptoms of the disease first appeared. Deceased was the eldest son of Wm. Kerr, Esq., who still survives him, and Catherine McDonnell, the other surviving members being J. J. Kerr, merchant, London; Mrs. David, Picton; Mrs. Wright, Conway. He was born in North Marysburgh 47 years ago, received a liberal education at the public school, managed the homestead for a number of years, when he disposed of the farm and became a general dealer in fruit, stock, etc., with considerable success. The testimony of all who had business with or knew him, is that he was a man of ability, honor and strict integrity, a quiet, peace-loving neighbor, a dutiful son, loving husband and father, a consistent member of the church. Faithful and devoted in his services at St. John's Anglican Church, having filled each place of official honor. His presence and help will be greatly missed by the congregation. The funeral services were conducted at St. John's Church, by the Rev. Canon Loucks, assisted by the pastor. Rev. Mr. Irvine; the Canon delivering an able and appropriate sermon, full of sympathy and consolation for the bereaved family and friends. The A.O.U.W. and Foresters Orders, of which he was a member, having been Financial Secretary of Court, Waupoos, since its charter, in procession accompanied the funeral cortege to the Church, thence to the Cemetery, and after the beautiful church burial service was read by Rev. Canon Loucks, the burial service and rites of the orders at the grave were conducted by the proper officers and brethren. Deceased leaves a widow and four daughters who have the sympathy of their many friends in this time of trial and bereavement.

OBITUARY - Arthur Ross King

It has been a long time since such widespread sorrow has been so keenly felt and expressed as that caused by the death of the late Arthur Ross King, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert King on Wednesday Sept. 1st, 1915.  He had been engaged all summer drawing milk from his home at Fifth Lake to Enterprise cheese factory.  And on Wednesday morning while going down a hill near Mrs. J. Burgess’ residence, about two miles north of Enterprise, some part of the harness broke, and in trying to save his load of milk, he lost his ballance and fell under the horses feet.  He was picked up by friends near by and was taken in Mrs. Burgess’ home, and Dr. Horton was summoned immediately.  But it was learned that he had sustained injuries from which he could not recover, and he passed peacefully away at 5:30 p.m.  The deceased was in his 27th year.  His pleasant smile and jolly jokes were always heard on every side when he was present.  He was liked by the old as well as the young and was held in the highest respect by all.  He was always on hand to do all he could in time of need.  This was one of the saddest funerals that moved out from behind the hills in this locality in many years and will long be remembered.  Gone, Arthur, but not forgotten.  Your good works and days of toil, your loving, cheery words cannot leave us, although you are not with us.  Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the much bereaved parents, brothers and sisters, and we trust that God will constantly visit them now while their cup of sorrow is running over, and comfort them in their hour of need.  The remains were followed by a large concourse of friends to the Methodist Church at Fifth Lake, on Friday, where a very impressive sermon was preached by Rev. Mr. Kemp, taking for his text John 11:35  “Jesus wept”  The remains were afterwards placed in the cemetery there.  Deceased was a member of the L.O.L., Enterprise, and was buried under that Order.

Kirkpatrick,

George Airey

 

THE LATE SIR GEORGE AIREY KIRKPATRICK – Sir George Airey Kirkpatrick was born in Kingston, Ont., 13th September, 1841 and was the fourth son of the late Thos. Kirkpatrick. Q.C., who came from Coolmine. County Dublin, Ireland.  Mr. Kirkpatrick received part of his education at the Grammar School, Kingston, and the High School, St. Johns, P.Q.; after which he was sent to Trinity College, Dublin, where he graduated with high honours, receiving the degrees of B.A. and L.L. B.; he also graduated as moderator and silver medallist for law., literature and political economy.  Returning home, he entered his father’s office, and there applied himself to a diligent study of the law, and was called to the bar of Upper Canada and was appointed Queen’s Counsel on the 11th October, 1880.  He received from his alma mater, in June, 1884, the degree of L.L.D.   In military affairs, Mr. Kirkpatrick had always taken an active part, entering as a private during the Trent affair, and rose step by step in the ranks until he reached the highest command, that of Lieut.-Colonel.  He went again into active service in the town of Cornwall, during the Fenian invasion, and acted during that period as adjutant to the 14th P.W.O. Battalion. He was elected President of the Dominion Rifle Association, and also commanded the Wimbledon Rifle team in 1876.  In commercial life Mr. Kirkpatrick had always had the advancement of his native city at heart, and had been one of the foremost in founding several of its most important works.  A large number of his friends, perceiving his marked abilities and being anxious that they should be employed for the benefit of his country in some legislative sphere, waited upon him and pressed upon him to allow himself to be put in nomination for the seat in the House of Commons made vacant by the death of his father.  This was in the year 1870, and Mr. Kirkpatrick’s father had for many years represented Frontenac.  Mr. Kirkpatrick was returned, and the electorate which had felt such confidence in their young representative were soon convinced that their forecasting had been correct, for he at once manifested the same excellent intellectual qualities in public which he had shown in his private affairs.  Whenever he arose in the House it was for the purpose of accomplishing something important, and when he spoke attention was given to him.  His manner was never repellent, but always gathered support, his bearing being dignified, kindly, but firm and uncompromising.  Soon men about the Treasury benches began to say one to another that Mr. Kirkpatrick’s day for some positioning the Government was drawing near.  Meanwhile he had given his time to legislative measures, and it was he who introduced the measure which aimed at securing a lien for seamen’s wages on vessels plying on inland waters. Year after year he introduced his measure, until eventually it found expression in Mr. Blake’s Maritime court Act for Ontario.  How important Mr. Kirkpatrick’s measure was is now apparent to the public, and sailors on inland seas regarded him justly as their benefactor.  As already stated, Mr. Kirkpatrick was first returned to the House of commons for Frontenac in 1870.  At the general elections of 1872, he was returned by acclamation;  again returned in 1874;  in 1878, and by acclamation at the general election, which followed.  Perceiving his courtesy, dignity and address and his acute knowledge of Parliamentary procedure, he was elected Speaker on the 8th of February, 1883.  As a Speaker he was dignified, impartial and effective; and always held the reins of the House with a firm hand.  He was married first on the 25th of October, 1865 to Miss Frances Jane, daughter of the late Hon. John Macaulay.  She died on the 20th of January, 1877.  He married again on the 26th of September, 1883, Miss Isabel Louisa, youngest daughter of the Hon. Sir David L. Macpherson, Senator.  In politics, Mr. Kirkpatrick was always a Liberal-Conservative.  In religion he was a member of the Church of England.  Mr. Kirkpatrick sat in the House of Commons until 1892, being Speaker until 1887.  In 1892, his seat was rendered vacant by his accepting the office of Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario, upon the death of Sir Alex Campbell.  He had four sons and one daughter by his first wife, and one son by his second wife – all living.  Mr. Kirkpatrick left Toronto for England on the 16th of November, 1896.  [**Clipping is cut off **]

(nee Perry)

 

Born At Violet in 1860, Dies in U.S. -

Mrs. Lizzie R. Kyes, a native of this area, died October 1 in Riverside, California, a week after reaching her 100th birthday.

She was born at Violet where her United Empire Loyalist parents lived on a Crown grant.  At her birth there was a mill on the farm whose foundations still exist.  She was the former Eliza Perry and her father, Daniel, was a cousin of the American naval hero, Commodore Oliver H. Perry.  Her mother’s maiden name  was Comer.

Mrs. Kyes moved to Riverside from Kansas in 1879, making the transcontinental trip by train and the last lap of the journey by stagecoach.  At that time she had a sister, Mrs. M. B. VanFleet, whose husband was the first Wells Fargo agent in Riverside.

Born on September 25, 1860, Mrs. Kyes was married Christmas Day, 1879, to H. P. Kyes, an orange grower, and was active in the community life of Riverside for 81 years. On her 100th birthday she received congratulations from President Eisenhower.  When Grandma Moses celebrated her 100th birthday, Mrs. Kyes sent her congratulations and received a reply, while she was in hospital.  Among the survivors is a daughter, Vera B. Kyes, an artist, who lived with her mother.

Mrs. Kyes was a charter member of the women’s Christian Temperance Union and belonged to Grace Methodist Church.  For 10 years every Christmas she used to collect and repair dolls and send them to children in the mountains of Kentucky.  One year she sent 500.  For many of these youngsters they were the only dolls they ever saw.  She began this hobby in 1941 and in later years sent crocheted baby jackets and booties to Kentucky. 

Sixty years ago Mrs. Kyes and her daughter visited Mrs. Kyes’ sister, Mrs Ryerson Gardiner, the former Mercy Perry, at Violet.
