In Memoriam - The Late James Parker Lake

James P. Lake, whose death occurred at Kingston hospital Thursday of last week, 31st ult., was one of the old and well-known residents of the county. He was a son of James Lake, one of the early residents, and was born in Ernesttown on August 19th 1825. He was, therefore, past seventy-four years of age at the time of his death. He was an active business man in the county for many years. From 1850 to 1864 he and his brother, the late Samuel Lake, carried on a large carriage making business at Morven, which was then a very active and flourishing manufacturing village. They moved to Newburgh, and later on he conducted quite an extensive manufacturing business in Napanee, on the corner of Dundas and Robert Streets, the site of the old skating rink. The buildings were burned there and he carried on farming and carriage building from some time near the Fredericksburg railway station. Years later he and his sons became interested in the Temperance colonization company in the north-west territories, and they were proprietors of the celebrated "Clark's Ferry" at the time of the great North-West rebellion. It was near that place that the decisive battle of Batoche was fought on the 12th of May, 1885, which terminated the hostilities. The home and teams of the Lakes were used by the Canadian forces during that time. Since then Mr. Lake returned to this county and has been a resident here ever since. His health had been very poor for some months past, of some liver trouble, but only a few weeks ago he informed the writer that he expected to recover again. He had just then returned from some weeks' stay among friends at Niagara and Toronto, and felt greatly benefitted by the change.

Mr. Lake was twice married, first to Mrs. Amy Frazer, daughter of the late Lewis Gordanier, of Morven, who died in October, 1892, and later on to Mrs. Electa Martin, daughter of the late Calvin Miller, Esq., of Switzerville, who survives him. His sons who survive him are J.F. Lake, Morven, and Parker D. and C.A. who are in the north-west. Mrs. Mullett, of South Fredericksburgh, is a daughter. He was an active member of the Methodist church from 1853 until the time of his death, and died in triumphs of the faith in which he lived. His surviving brothers are Silas Lake, near Trenton, a local preacher and class leader there, and John N. Lake, of Toronto, in the real estate business there, and one of the treasurers of the Methodist general conference funds. Both these gentlemen were once residents of Ernesttown, and are well known to many of our readers. The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon last at the Morven Methodist church. Rev Mr. Wickett conducting it. The body was deposited in the Morven vault.

 

[Fredericksburgh, Sept. 12] The remains of the late James P. Lake were interred in the White church burying ground today.

Death of a Venerable Lady

Belleville, Dec 8. - Mrs. David M. Lake, an old resident of the city, expired Thursday night after a lingering illness. Deceased was eighty-nine years of age. Mrs. Lake was born 19th Sept., 1805, in Adolphustown, grand-daughter of Lieut. Sharp, British officer in the revolutionary war, and daughter of Thomas Douglass, of New York state, contractor of first court house in Adolphustown and stone mills at Glenora. She well remembered the first steamboat that came up the Bay of Quinte. In June, 1830, she was married to David M. Lake, of New York state, near Oswego, where they resided for several years. They then came to Canada in 1837 and settled at Glenora, then known as Stone Mills, where he built the plaster mills, being the first to introduce plaster into Canada. Her husband died in 1875.

At Buffalo N.Y. on Tuesday, Dec 8th, 1914, Mrs. Freeman Lane, aged 68 years.

 

Another of the former residents of Napanee has added her name to the large roll of those who have passed from these to everlasting habitations.  Mrs. Sarah E. Lane, wife and widow of Freeman Lane, also formerly of this town, died in Buffalo, N.Y., on Tuesday, the 8th of December.  She was for many years an active and enthusiastic member of the Western Methodist Church (now Grace Church), never grudging any personal effort to forward the interests and the spiritual enterprises of that church body, and yet always ready to lend a helping hand to the advancement of the cause of the Kingdom of God under whatsoever auspices the appeal came.  She was a faithful participant in all good works and was above all a good mother, who administered unto her children with truest fidelity, the higher things of the spirit.  And now that she has fought the good fight and finished the course and kept the faith, there is laid up for her the crown of righteousness, and unto her children there remains the power of her just life and the memory of a faith unfailing and undimmed to guide their way.  She was predeceased by her husband about two years ago and by her brother, Thomas A. Huffman, about a year ago.  There remain to mourn her loss two sons, Dr. M. S. Lane of Buffalo, N.Y. and Prof. Wilmot B. Lane, of Victoria College, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada.

Death of Mrs. E. S. Lapum.

Another of the older generation and a life long resident of our town has passed away, in the person of Mrs. E. S. Lapum, who died very unexpectedly on the early morning of January 25th, 1921.  Her maiden name was Margaret Lavina Duncan, and she was born in the Township of Fredericksburgh, just east of the town, on February 14th, 1851, but her family moved into Napanee when she was yet a little girl.  Besides her husband, she leaves two sons, Fred S., of Mexico City, and Hartley, of Napanee, and one sister, Mrs. W. A. Steacy.  Mrs. Lapum had not been in good health for the past ten years of more, but she bore any troubles she may have had as only one whose ideas were all the highest and who lived up to them, could bear the.  Her immediate relatives have our sincere sympathy, in the loss of one who was loved by those who knew her well enough and who was respected by everyone who knew her at all.  The funeral, which was a large and representative one, was held in Trinity Church at 2.30 p.m. on Thursday, January 27th.

MRS. J. LAWRENCE -

Whose maiden name was Matilda Rickenbrode, was born in the township of Washington, Clarion Co., Pa., in the year 1849 and died in Harwich, county of Kent, July 16th, 1886. 

Sister Lawrence was converted to God when fifteen years of age.   Being born of pious and devoted parents, her young feet were early taught to tread in the paths of righteousness.  She having known the Scriptures from her youth, and having more than an ordinary amiable disposition the Holy Ghost found in her heart a beautiful temple for his abiding home;  her life beautifully illustrating the words of the Master, “I am the vine, ye are the branches; he that abideth in me and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit.”  The fruit of her Christian life was seen in the home, where she ruled with firmness and love.  Her smiles seemed bathed in sweetness and light and her laughter chastened by grace more musical that the rippling brook.  She was a “mother”. The Church to her mind was the intermediate state between earth and heaven.  The language of her heart was “One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.”  During her long and painful affliction she was often heard to say, “My soul longeth, yea even fainteth, for the courts of the Lord.  My heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.”  When so weakened by disease that she could no longer take her place in the sanctuary she committed her all to the ever living One, who kept her by his mighty power through the fiery furnace through which she was called to pass.  When in the valley she asked the writer to sing.  I said, “What shall I sing?”  “Sing:  “Am I a soldier of the Cross, A follower of the Lamb?”

Thus died one of God’s elect and most precious jewels, in hope of a glorious immortality.  She left behind, a kind husband and five dear children, who deeply feel their loss.  Her last remains were followed by a large concourse of people to the Methodist church in the town of Blenheim, where an appropriate service was held, and thence to the evergreen cemetery where she was laid away in the hope of a glorious resurrection.     J.

Edward Lloyd Killed by Milk Truck

A most unfortunate accident occurred early Monday morning at Sillsville, when Mr. Edward Lloyd was struck and instantly killed by a truck driver and owned by George Ohlman.

The accident happened at Mr. Lloyd's home just opposite the post office at the village of Sillsville, on the county road. Mr. Ohlman, who draws milk to the Acme Farmers' Dairy at Napanee, was coming to town with his morning's load of milk. He was accompanied by Durwood Garrison. Mr. Lloyd, it is alleged, was moving large lumps of mud from the road, which had been dropped by a tractor. The wheels on the left-hand side of the truck apparently struck Mr. Lloyd and passed over part of his body, killing him instantly.

Dr. Hall of Napanee, and Provincial Constable F.W. Barrett were called immediately, and investigated.

An inquest will be held on Friday, May 18th, at 2:00 p.m. at Sillsville.

Mr. Lloyd was a fisherman who had lived in the Sillsville district all his life. He was 55 years of age and leaves his wife and family of ten children. One of his older sons has worked in Napanee for some years with W.H. Hunter & Son, in connection with their milk business.

Five Children Burned to Death

Napanee, Jan. 31st - Five young children left alone in a house three miles from here to-day were burned to death when the house was completely destroyed by fire.  The children were all of the family of Arthur Lloyd, cheesemaker of North Fredericksburg Station.

Mr. Lloyd was in the bush gathering wood.  Mrs. Lloyd was visiting at a neighbor's house and the oldest child was at school when the fire broke out from an unknown cause, at ten o'clock.

Volunteer helpers called all over the surrounding countryside were too late either to check the flames or to effect an entrance to the burning building.  The body of one child has been recovered from the ruins.

Lloyd, who for practically all his lifetime had been a resident of Napanee, died suddenly early Saturday morning at his home on Water street.  Mr. Lloyd, about three years ago suffered a severe stroke and since that time had been confined to the house.  His condition had been about as usual, until he was suddenly stricken with a severe heart attack, from which he passed away with a short time.

Mr. Lloyd was born in South Fredericksburgh and was the son of the late Jacob and Mary Lloyd.  For thirty years he was engaged in railroad work, from which he retired about five years ago.  He was one of the first men to work on the Bay Quinte Railroad and was foreman of a section gang.  Later he was employed by the G.T.R. and the C.N.R.  For a short time he lived in Oshawa, but the greater part of his life was spent in Napanee.  He was in his 76th year.

Mr. Lloyd is survived by his wife formerly Clara Lynn, and four daughters and one son.  The children are Mrs. Peter Bates, Hobart, Indiana;   Mrs. Harry Harvey, Chicago, Ill.;  Mrs. M. Schuster, Chicago, Ill.;  Mrs Wilfred Boyd, Portland, Oregon, and Raymond Lloyd of California.  One daughter, Mrs. Tom Spence, died a short time ago.

The funeral was held at his late residence on Tuesday afternoon and interment was made in Riverside Cemetery.  It was attended by Mr. Lloyds’ three daughters, Mrs. Harvey, Mrs. Schuster, and Mrs. Bates, and other relatives and friends from Brockville, Watertown, N.Y., Brighton and Wellington.

OBITUARY -

Mrs. J. S. Lochhead, the subject of this brief sketch, formerly Miss Eliza Ann Baker, was born in Camden on June 3d 1833 and passed to her reward on Wednesday, April 8th, 1908.  She was of U. E. Descent.  When seventeen years of age the change took place which altered the whole current of her life and made her what her life proved to be, a benediction to her home and a blessing to the community.  Our departed sister was a consistent and devoted member of the Methodist church for fifty-seven years and a lover of the old fashioned class and prayer meetings.

On Sept 30th 1857, she was united in marriage to James S. Lochhead, of Centreville, where she resided the remainder of her life.  The fruits of her godly life were best seen in her home, where for long years, she presided with wisdom, tact and self-poise.  Her strong common sense and true maternal instincts under the direction and control of the divine spirit, made her a centre of influence, not only in her own family but in the  church, the village and the community at large, where she was a veritable tower of strength in any time of trouble.

Her death came unexpectedly.  Going out to mail a letter to one of her children, she slipped and fell, becoming unconscious almost immediately.  She remained in that comatose state till evening, when she was not for God took her. 

The funeral services were conducted at the house by her pastor, Rev. R. Allin and were very impressive.  What a contrast there was between this gathering and the one on Sept 30th of last year, when she and her husband celebrated their golden wedding.

Her husband, four daughters, Janet, at home, Mrs. T. C. Craighead and Clara, of Vancouver, and Laura, of Peterborough, and three sons, Dr. J. A. of Hamilton;  J. Mortimer, at home, and William M.A., of Berlin, remain to mourn a keenly felt loss, but with a sure and certain hope of meeting on the other side of the river, where we shall see as we are seen and know as we are known.

RAILROAD CONDUCTOR MEETS HIS DEATH NEAR RICE’S – James Locke of Watertown Struck by Club Train, Dying on Way to Hospital – Watertown, Nov. 3 – Struck by the Club train within a few hundred yards of Rice’s this morning, James F. Locke, 31 years of age, a well-known railroad conductor, residing at No. 100 South Massey street, died while being hurried to the City Hospital a half hour later,  Mr. Locke is survived by a widow and two sisters, one residing in Ottawa, the other in the West.  Conductor Locke was born in Ottawa, but had resided here for the past twelve years.  Among railroad men he was regarded as one of the most careful in the company’s employ.  He left here this morning in charge of a work train  that took a switch at Rice’s to allow a double-header to pass it northbound.  The freight had passed and Conductor Locke, after throwing the switch, walked around the locomotive attached to his train and stepped directly in front of the Club train, southbound, on the third track.  The Club train was running perhaps thirty miles an hour, and hurled the man to what later resulted in his death.  Mr. Locke was placed in the caboose and hurried here in the hope that medical attendance might forestall death, but in vain.  Though awaiting word from the sister in the West, it is probable that the funeral will be held Saturday at the home of a sister-in-law, Mrs. James Hopper, No., 139 North Hamilton street.

 

OBITUARY – Funeral of James Locke – The funeral of James Locke, the conductor who died on the way to the hospital yesterday, after being struck by a train at Rices, will be held at the home of his brother-in-law James Hoppe, No. 139 North Hamilton street, Saturday morning at 8:15 and from St. Patrick’s church at 9:30.  Rev. P. J. Devlin will officiate in High Mass.  Interment will be made at Copenhagen.  The railroad company has given a special train for the use of the relatives, friends and railroad employees, and it will leave for Copenhagen at 10:30.  Mr. Locke is survived by a wife, Mrs. Maude Graham Locke and two sisters, Mrs. Ernest Baker of Ottawa, and Mrs. J. R. Murphy of Mitchell, S.D.  He was a member of the Railroad Order of Conductors and was popular among his fellow workmen, and has many friends in the city.  Coroner S.C. Hollins of Belleville viewed the remains at Payne & Burns’ undertaking parlors, and will hold an inquest at Adams tomorrow at 10 o’clock.  Dr. C. N. Bibbins acted as coroner’s physician, and gave as the cause of death, shock and internal hemorrhages, due to accident.

Drowned - 

On Wednesday afternoon last, Mr. Henry Loyst, aged 71 years, who resides on the shores of Hay bay, was engaged doing a small job for himself by the water’s edge, when he fell backward into the water.  In his fall he struck the back of his head on a stone, which probably stunned him, and he was drowned in about four feet of water.  He was subject to fits of dizziness, one of which, it is supposed, caused the fatal fall.

 

On Wednesday last Henry Loyst, an old gentleman of 71 years attended. The cemetery, is situated on the farm owned by Mr. Loyst on the south shore of Hay Bay and a high sandy bluff overlooks the bay. Mr. Loyst was walking along the edge of the bluff when the earth gave way and he was precipitated to the bottom, falling in shallow water. When discovered he was dead. It was thought that he was stunned by the fall and being unable to rise, was drowned.

Late John Lucas, Moscow - He Was the Son of a U.E. Loyalist - His Long Career and Pious Ending - 

The subject of this obituary has no doubt been known from many years in this city and the adjoining townships.

John Lucas was born in Earnestown, near Odessa, on Sept. 30th, 1820, and died Dec. 14th, 1885, in the 76th year of his age. He was a son of the late Dennis Lucas, United Empire Loyalist. John Lucas settled in the Township of Camden, in the Huffman neighborhood, now known as Moscow, in 1833. On the 1st of October in the following year (1834), he was united in marriage to Mary J. Aylsworth, daughter of the late Bowen Aylsworth, of Earnestown. In her he found a devoted and faithful wife. She still lives to mourn his loss. They had fourteen children and all are living, and grown to man and womanhood, six boys and eight girls. All these are married and settled in life except three girls, still living at the old home. John Lucas was a Christian of worthy example to many. He was converted in his own home, in October of the year 1836, and united with the Methodist church, and continued a consistent member until his death. His great concern through life was for the welfare of his family and his church. He was painstaking and careful to look after all the interests of his family, making them comfortable. He proved a devoted husband and faithful father. In the church he acted as steward and class leader for many years with great acceptation. His interest in the political welfare of his country as a Reformer was ever consistently and prudently directed. He never allowed politics to interfere with his religion. The last years of his life were years of quiet and patient suffering. In all his devotion to Christ it was evident that he lived in readiness for the coming of the master to call him home. May the mantle of the father fall on the children.

The Late John Lucas

The death occurred at his home in Napanee of Mr. John Lucas, on Sunday, February 3rd. Mr. Lucas, who was caretaker of Riverside cemetery, was taken suddenly ill on the preceding Friday, while helping to trim trees in the cemetery grounds. Shortly after, he was seized with a paralytic stroke, and passed away on Sunday evening.

The late Mr. Lucas, who was in his 77th year, was born at Big Creek in North Fredericksburgh Township. His father, who was of English U.E. Loyalist stock, was a farmer and the son followed the same vocation for many years. A little over 19 years ago, he became the caretaker of Riverside Cemetery, a position he filled efficiently until his death.

The splendidly kept grounds reflected much credit on the care and taste of Mr. Lucas.

Mr. Lucas was twice married. His first wife, formerly Lucinda Akey,  died over thirty years ago, leaving two sons, John Jr. and Percy. Twenty years ago, Mr. Lucas married Mrs. Peter Smith, at Springbrook, Ont. To them was born one daughter, Janet. Mr. Angus Smith is a step-son.
