Died - At Picton on the morning of Monday the 14th inst. Thomas Nash, Esq. J.P. clerk of the District court, &c &c. He has left behind him a wife and eight young children to deplore his untimely removal, and his death has caused a blank in Society, which will not easily be filled up. As a Magistrate and public character, he was firm and uncompromising in the discharge of his duty. As a neighbour and friend, he was kind and benevolent, - ever ready to assist the distressed or succor the afflicted. As a husband and father, he was tender and affectionate, and deeply will his loss be felt by the survivors.

The memory of the just is blessed.

At the General Hospital, Kingston, Tuesday afternoon, March 23rd, 1915. Thomas Webb Nash, C. E., in his 88th year.  Funeral from the undertaking rooms of Robert J. Reid, 230 Princess Street to Cataraqui Cemetery on Friday morning at 10:30 o’clock.  Friends and acquaintances respectfully invited to attend.

 

Father of K. & P. Has Passed Away

Career of Thos. W. Nash, Engineer, is Closed

He Laid out plans for Kingston and Pembroke Ry. – Was an Engineer of Authority

Mr. Thomas Webb Nash succumbed to the ravages of old age in the General Hospital Last night.  He had been in the institution for about two weeks but age had set heavily on his weakened shoulders and he gradually sank, passing away peacefully last night.  The late Mr. Nash was born on Amherst Island on the 29th of December 1826.  His father, Thomas Nash came from Bristol;, England, and carried on a store at Picton, Ont.  On his mother’s side he was descended form Mrs. Haris, of Albeston, a somewhat distinguished member of the “Society of Friends” (Quakers).  A short account of her life was published at Bristol in 1834.  Mr. Nash himself was a Quaker in sympathies and has been heard to claim that he was still a member of that Society as he had “never been read out.”  At the same time his religious connection for many years was with the Methodist church.  His heart was set on being an engineer, and he articled himself to John Emmerson, a Provincial Land Surveyor at Thurlow, and was in his employment, when the construction of the Grand Trunk Railway from Toronto to Montreal was begun.  He obtained employment as an engineer of the great new railway and continued with the Grand Trunk until the road was completed, and subsequently came to Kingston and settled down here pursuing the vocation of a Provincial Land Surveyor, which he carried on up to a few months ago.  When the Kingston & Pembroke Railway was organized he became their Chief Engineer.  The laying out of the road as it now runs was his work.  Only Engineers know the difficulties with which he had to contend in constructing a road through the broken country between Kingston and Renfrew.  He was one of the makers of Canada, whose work is done out of sight, without noise, but is none the less of the greatest value to his country.  It would not be incorrect to say that Mr. Nash was universally esteemed as a man of unblemished character and reputation quiet, simple and unostentatious in his life “doing good by stealth,”  in ways that very few people knew anything about.  There are men in Kingston who could tell of sincere services of friendship and assistance rendered to them by the deceased citizen, which were never heard of or known except between the giver and receiver.  Mr. Nash took a real interest in the University and School of Mining and for some years was a Governor of the latter institution.  He leaves two brothers, Dr. Alfred Nash, Joliet, Ill.; Dr. Samuel Nash of Bath, Ont., and three sisters,  Mrs. L. E. Loomis, of Rich Hill, Mo.,  Mrs Isobel Sweatman, of Bloomfield, Ont., and Mrs. Mary Allen Kingston, Ont.

Napanee Ont., June 4 - A very sad drowning accident happened this afternoon about five o’clock, when Fred, the fifteen-year-old son of Mr. Allan Neilson, of Sandhurst, lost his life.  After school, a number of the school boys went down to the river to bathe.  It is supposed that the deceased took cramps, and before assistance could be procured was drowned.  The other boys who were with him were small, and could not swim well.  He was in the water more than half an hour, and all efforts to resuscitate him proved fruitless.

 

Napanee, June 5. - A very sad accident occurred at the sand banks on the Napanee river yesterday afternoon about five o'clock, when Fred., the fifteen year old son of Allan Neilson, of Sandhurst, lost his life. After school a few of the boys went down the river to bathe, and it appears young Neilson took cramps and drowned before assistance could be procured. Allan Preston recovered the body after being in the water over half an hour, and all efforts to resuscitate him proved fruitless.

The other boys who were with him were small and could not swim well, and therefore could not render him assistance. The remains were taken to his father's last night.

 

The remains of the late Fred Neilson, drowned in the river on Monday afternoon were conveyed, yesterday morning, to his home in Sandhurst. The funeral takes place today.

Obituary

Since the last issue of the STANDARD death has claimed among others as its victims two old and highly respected residents, whose deaths occurred so nearly together that it seemed as if ordained that they who had been so long and happily united in life should not be parted in death.  The deaths referred to are those of Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell Neville, which occurred on Monday and Thursday of last week.  Mrs. Neville preceding her husband by the three days indicated above.  Mr. Neville was born in Switzerville in the year 1813, and Mrs. Neville in North Fredericksburgh about two years later.  Both had been in poor health for some time and the release from their sufferings at last was not altogether unexpected.  Mr. Neville was a man of more than ordinary intelligence, one who might well have become conspicuous in the affairs of any community, but he seems to have preferred reserving his energies for the service of religious and benevolent enterprises.  Many years ago he united with what is now known as the Canada Methodist Church, in which body he became subsequently a local preacher of ability much above the average of the class.  He loved his religion well, and by his daily life sought to set an example to all around him which would win for it respect and lead others to embrace it.  He also at various times and in many ways has rendered valuable service to the temperance cause, of which he was long a firm friend.  In Mrs. Neville he had fortunately a helpmate who thoroughly sympathized with his religious and benevolent feelings and who gave him valuable assistance in all his undertakings in their behalf.  The place that they have vacated in church  and society affairs will not readily be filled.  their presence, kindly counsel, loving Christian encouragement and generous aid will be greatly missed by many, who sincerely mourn their departure hence to their eternal reward.  Of a family of twelve children with which their union was blessed, eight survive them and now fill honorable positions.

OBITUARY -  In the death of Ernest Stewart Newport, editor and publisher of the Deseronto Post, the community has lost a good citizen and a bright, energetic worker.  Though but 26 years old, he was well known to the public and enjoyed a wide circle of friends.  With determination to win, and increasing labor, he gained a portion of that success which surely would have been his if death had not claimed him so early.  His honesty, cheerfulness and forcefulness of purpose won for him the respect of all that knew him. Mr. Newport served his apprenticeship with the Napanee Beaver, and was later connected with The Daily British Whig, Kingston.  In 1915, he took over the Deseronto Post, and raised that paper to its present standing.  He was an active member of the Board of Education in Deseronto, and took a prominent part in all public and church movements.  In 1917 he married Miss N. L. Windover, of Napanee, who is left to mourn his loss.

William Osterhout, of this charge,  one of our oldest and most highly respected members of the Official Board, in the forty-third year of her age.  Her departure was very unexpected, being stricken down of inflammation on the night of Friday, Jan. 14th.  She calmly passed away at an early hour on Sabbath morning, after a little over twenty-four hours of great suffering.  Our sister was of a bright and cheerful disposition, which was improved by a full consecration to God and  the work of the Church;  having been converted in early life, she was ever ready to perform well her part in  behalf of the cause, and when the call came she was found ready to go the way of all the earth without a murmur.  Before her departure she called all the friends to her side to take a last earthly farewell, requiring from each a promise to meet her in the better land, at the same time assuring her heart-stricken husband that the time and way were short until they would be reunited.  Bro. Osterhout is greatly broken down, this being the third companion taken from his fond embrace, as well as several children.  Having acquired a competency of this world’s goods and provided well for a large family, he and his departed companion had retired a little over a year ago to a comfortable home in the village, where they expected to spend a few happy years, and where our brother now is sad and alone, greatly cast down but not forsaken.  May the God of all grace administer and comfort.  We laid her to rest, with due ceremony in the presence of a large concourse of relatives and neighbors.  [signed]  H. McQuad.

Mrs. Florence Casey Ostrom - Widow of the late Thomas Marshall Ostrom, of Belleville and Toronto, daughter of the late Gilbert S. Casey and Esther Casey, of Adolphustown, passed away suddenly at her home, Piety Hill, Napanee, on October 10th last.

Mrs. Ostrom spent her girlhood days in the Township of Adolphustown, and latterly in school. She was well known in those days by a large circle of friends in Napanee and Adolphustown and the country around. After her marriage she moved to Toronto, where she spent most of her life. It was her unfortunate experience to lose three of her children. She left her surviving only one son, Mr. D.M. Ostrom, of Toronto, who has visited his mother here on different occasions and who was suddenly called to Napanee after his mother had passed away.

The late Mrs. Ostrom was most attentive to her mother during her mother's last years, which were unfortunately years of feebleness and illness.

Mrs. Ostrom was in very indifferent health during these years, and she suffered a physical breakdown, and spent considerable time in the Hospital in Toronto during the last winter, but she felt sufficiently recovered in health to open her home in Napanee this Spring, and endeavored to attend to her usual duties, and engaged in her work as a member of the Woman's Auxiliary of St. Mary Magdalene's Church, and of the I.O.D.E.

To those who knew her intimately she appeared brightly alert to all the activities, both local and general, and her companionship was an inspiration for her friends, among whom she will be sadly missed.

The funeral took place in St. Mary Magdalene's Church on Thursday of last week, and was conducted by the Rev. Mr. Dumbrille.

The sympathy of the community is extended to her son and his family, and relatives, in the bereavement they have sustained.

DIED - On Monday, the 24th June, in the township of Sidney, of Hydrophobia, Miss Margaret M. Ostrom, 12 years, 5 months, and 16 days.

The deceased was bitten by a mad dog on or about the 14th May, but did not exhibit any symptoms of madness till Thursday the 20th June, when she became deranged, and would attempt to snap at almost every thing that fell in her way, especially when water was presented to her.  During the time she was seized with madness, and the time she died, a period of only four days, she had several lucid intervals, when she would converse with her friends, forgave the rabid animal which bit her, and expressed a sincere wish to leave this world of sorrow and woe.  She wished that her case might be published to the world.  The day preceding her death, the writer of this short sketch saw her, and he never beheld such a sight.  He believes that a pamphlet describing her situation during her illness, is preparing for publication.  The Editors of Newspapers in this Province are requested by her afflicted relatives to insert this short obituary in their respective papers.

OBITUARIES - BELYAT OUTWATER

On Thursday, December 22nd, 1938, at his late residence, Suite 9, Clayton Apartments, Young Street, Winnipeg, Man., Belyat Outwater, aged 72 years, beloved husband of Sarah Outwater, passed away.  Interment was made in Brookside Cemetery, Winnipeg.  He had been in failing health for about one year, but was able to be around up to within three days from the time he was confined to his bed.

Bill, as he was familiarly known, was born at Hay Bay, Ontario, September 24th, 1866, and remained on the old home place until 1916, when he disposed of the farm and came west to Goodeye, Sask.  He entered the services of the Canadian National Railway in whose employ he served fourteen years, at Central Butte and Fort Qu’appele Sask., as baggageman.  He retired from active service in 1932, and moved to Winnipeg.

He was a staunch member of the former Methodist Church long before Church Union.  His birthplace on the shores of the old Hay Bay, Ont., a historical spot on account of the first Methodist meeting House in Canada having been erected on its shores, this building still stands, and has been kept in such a state of preservation, that memorial services are still conducted periodically.

The Rev. W. E. Donnelly, Pastor of Young United Church, Winnipeg, conducted the service at the Mordue Funeral Home on December 24th, making particular mention of the historic birth place of the deceased, emphasizing the excellent character of the U.E. Loyalists and paying a very high tribute of respect to the departed.  Mr. Donnelly took his text from the 14th chapter of St. John, verses 1 and 2:  “In my Father’s house are many mansions, if it were not so I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you, and if I go I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am there ye may be also.”

Mr. Donnelly’s remarks were very sympathetic and comforting.  “Asleep in Jesus” was very beautifully sung by Mrs. Scott.

The high esteem in which the deceased was held was made manifest by the very numerous floral tributes.

Mr. Outwater leaves to mourn his widow and two daughters, Alberta of Winnipeg and Mrs. Harry Phillips of Ituna, Sask., also two sisters, Mrs. Edward Dirby of Belleville, Ont., and Mrs. M. Arnold, Chatham, Ont., and two grandchildren, Edna and Roy Phillips.

Mr. and Mrs. Outwater’s only son, Roy, died in Toronto, October 28th, 1918.

DEATH OF MRS. S. M. OUTWATER  On Saturday, July 13th in Adolphustown, departed this life a dear old saint in the person of Mrs. S. M. Outwater, aged 85, and on the following Monday morning, after service by the Rector, Rev. Canon Roberts, in her late home, a large concourse testifying to the high regard in which she was deservedly held, her “tired body” was laid in St. Alban’s cemetery, beside that of her good husband who predeceased her a little over two years.  While friends and neighbors deeply sympathize with the sorrowing relatives left behind, yet they cannot but feel it a matter for contest, nay rejoicing, that these two old wayfarers, after a short term of separation, are now reunited in the fair land beyond the sea, and there continuing and that more effectively, their work for God begun here for “Lo from earth’s imperfect labour He hath call’d them to His feet, There to work, where free from failure, Work is sweet.”
