Palen,

Victoria

(nee Pierce)

 

In Memorial -  The sudden death of Victoria, wife of J. Stanley Palen, of Waupoos, has cast a terrible gloom over that community and elsewhere.  The deceased lady was greatly beloved and respected.  Mrs. Palen was the third daughter of John and  Lydia Pierce, of North Marysburgh.  Her education was obtained from Picton High School, Toronto and Ottawa Normal Schools.  Her devotion to the cause of education placed her to the front as a public school teacher.  In her profession, it may be said, she had few, if any superiors.  From the days of her lovely childhood she had been a constant inspiration to others.  Her influence for good upon the young people in her neighborhood was very marked.  She taught, not simply by word, but by act.  We who knew and loved her, can recall that gentle womanly presence, the loving voce, with sweet compelling power.  She met death as she had met life, with dignity and courage.  She was a member of the Church of England.  Her funeral on Sunday, Dec 21st, at St. John’s church, North Marysburgh, was largely attended, though the weather was inclement.  Rev. Mr. Kennedy and Canon Loucks officiated.  The loss occasioned by Mrs. Palen’s death at the early age of thirty-seven, is keenly felt, and the sorrowing husband, relatives and friends have the deep sympathy of everyone.  C.C.T.

JOHN PAINTER - The subject of this brief memoir was born in England in 1811 and came to Canada in 1844.  During the time he was in England he was occupied on the farm, always finding plenty of work, as he was a faith man.  He was brought up to the English Church, and for fifteen years previous to his coming to Canada he was a singer in it.  Coming to Canada he came to Woodstock, and after a few days’ stay came to Blanshard, where he lived till the time of his death.  He and his faithful partner struggled hard through many difficulties but never alone; for during the labors of Rev. Mr. Codville, a Primitive Methodist, he was savingly converted to God  and in his struggles God’s presence was his greatest comfort.  After his conversion to God he continued a faithful member to the Primitive Methodist Church.  For years previous to his departure he suffered from a very severe affliction, which loosened his affections and desires for this world and strengthened them for that land where no shadows fall or afflictions are felt.  He bore his sufferings with Christian fortitude and courage, often stating without a doubt that his peace was made with God, and that he was waiting God’s time. He passed sweetly into rest on the 7th of Oct. 1885.   [signed] E. A. Fear

Parks, passed peacefully away early Sunday morning, July 5, after a lengthy illness.  The deceased was born in Sheffield over seventy-three years ago.  His parents were the late William and Ann Parks.  In his early life the deceased learned the trade of harness-making, after which he served as apprentice in a jewellery store, and in the year 1895 he opened a jewellery store of his own, in Tamworth, and continued in that business as long as his health permitted him to do so.  Although he gave up his store about four years ago, he continued to do repair work at his home until this spring.

A. Redding preaching a very comforting sermon, and during the service, Mr. Wesley Pedley, by request, sang a solo, “Jesus, Saviour Pilot Me.”  The bearers were chosen from Brother Masons, and were Messrs.

The Late Marshall Parks

Mr. Marshall Parks, for many years a conductor on the old Bay of Quinte Railway, the Canadian Northern Railway, and latterly the Canadian national Railway, passed away last Saturday at the home of his brother-in-law, George Greer, Napanee, after a lengthy illness.  His funeral was conducted at Mr. Greer’s home on Monday afternoon by Rev. P. T. Richards of Grace United Church and at the vault in Riverside cemetery, the Masonic Order conducted their service for the dead.  In the spring Mr. Parks’ body will be buried at Riverside cemetery.

The late Mr. Parks retired from active railway service about twelve years ago and since that time had spent the greater part of his time with Mr. Greer and his sister, Mrs. Greer.  Several winters he spent in California with his son.  Mr. Parks was well known, and very popular with a large number of people who came in contact with him when travelling on his trains during the forty-seven years he served as conductor.

He was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Parks and was born just over 83 years ago in Rawden Township in Hastings.  when still very young his parents moved to Prince Edward County near Picton, for a few years, and when he was about 18, they came to Napanee.

When Mr. Parks was 22 he married and went to live at Deseronto, at which time he entered the employ of the Bay of Quinte Railway under Mr. H. B. Sherwood of Napanee, as a conductor.  When the Bay of Quinte was taken over by the Canadian Northern he remained with the company and continued also when the Canadian Northern became part of the Canadian National.  His runs were mostly in the Bay of Quinte district extending from Kingston to Picton and he thus became very familiar with a large number of the citizens of the district.

His wife died about 14 years ago and after his retirement, the next year he came to Napanee to reside.

He leaves one son, Herbert in California, who expected to be in town for his father’s funeral, but was unable to arrive in time because of trouble with the plane in which he was flying to Chicago.  He expects to come to Napanee in about two weeks time.

Mr. Parks leaves one sister, Mrs. Greer of Napanee.  Another sister and a brother died some years ago.

One of the oldest and most highly respected residents of North Fredericksburgh died at his residence, on the north shore of Hay Bay, on Tuesday 29th  inst., at the ripe age of 87 years 4 months and 17 days. He was one of the very last of the second generation of U.E. Loyalist pioneers of the township and a capital specimen of that hardy and energetic race which ought long to live in the memories of the people. Mr. Parks was born, lived all his long and active life and died on the same farm, -a home hewed out of the wilderness of Upper Canada by his father Cyrenus Parks, who came here with the first of the early British refugees in 1784. The same farm has now been occupied by four hardy generations of men. The whole locality was long popularly known as 'the Parks neighborhood. The deceased was the youngest of twenty children by the same father who was twice married, and they nearly all lived to become active men and women. The descendants of the original Cyrenus Parks are now numbered by the hundreds, we believe. Of the deceased it could well be said "he was one of nature's noblest work, an honest man," - one of those whose word was deemed as good as his bond by all who knew him; a man of whom it could be well and truly said "you always know where to find him,' in all matters, in business, in politics and the church and in all moral movements. He was a man 'diligent in business, fervent in spirit, serving the lord', who truly feared God and honored the King. Though a man of very quiet and unpretending habits he occupied a very influential position for many of his active years. In municipal affairs he was a leading man in the township council and represented it in the County council; in politics he was one of the old reliables of the Conservative party; in the Methodist church he was a trusted 'stand-by' for two generations; his home was always open to ministers, Christian workers and to his friends and neighbors - a man 'given to hospitality' in its truest sense. He was noted, in his quiet way, for his liberality in all the works of his church, honoring God with his substance, and it is not to be wondered at therefore, that in business affairs, he was always well prospered and enjoyed in his declining years, the satisfaction of seeing his sons all successful and prosperous business men. About sixty-five years ago he married Miss Bathsheba Lazier, of Prince Edward County, also a member of a large and well known UEL family, who was to him, in all his long life and down to his very dying hours, a helpmate indeed. She still remains in good health, and well in possession of her mental and physical facilities though now past the eighty fifth milestone of an active life, and sixty-fifth of a happy wifehood. Their surviving children are Messrs John F., Albert C., and Charles B. S Parks, all well known farmers in their native township, and Mr. James Parks, who has for many years occupied a position in Kansas City post office. Their one daughter, Mrs. Rosetta Lucas, died in Kansas years ago. The funeral took place yesterday at the Hay Bay Methodist Church, near his home, and the body was deposited in Napanee vault.

Obituary - Ralph Parks

It was on the 19th day of February last that the peaceful community of South Fredericksburgh was shocked by the news that travelled over the busy wires that Ralph Parks had been seriously injured by the falling of a large tree which struck him.

Fortunately four brothers and the father witnessed the accident and immediately rendered first aid. It was at once observed that the accident was a serious one, and they promptly took him to his home and summoned Dr. Hall, who at once ordered his immediate removal to the hospital at Kingston. A hurried consultation with Dr. Mundell resulted in an operation which was skillfully performed, but in spite of the best medical skill and unstinted nursing, care and kindness, Ralph passed into the Great Beyond early in the morning of the 23rd of February.

Rapidly as the news of his accident spread, still more so did the news of his death when a whole community for many miles distant were plunged into deep mourning for one they knew and loved so much.

Yes! It was Ralph Parks, a boy from one of the best homes in the country. A boy who reflected those pious principles and all those strong and yet gentle features of noble manhood which were so faithfully inculcated by loving christian parents into his growing and expanding nature, that made him of more than ordinary value as a man among men.

Ralph was not rash in his decisions nor unduly speculative in his undertakings for he possessed the rare ability of a calm and calculative meditation which saved him from many cares and sorrows so common to others. In no instance is this more plainly seen than in relation to his marriage.

It was on the 7th April, 1920, when 32 years of age, he married Laura, the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.P. Mellow, of Gretna. While this was not everybody's business, yet everybody rejoiced over this happy union. It was felt by all that a more beautiful and ideal example of conjugal relationship could not be witnessed and on that ever memorable day this happy couple were united in wedlock in the presence of a host of admiring friends at the bride's home. It was immediately following this that Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Parks commenced to make their home on their new farm at Hawley. It is not possible in this brief sketch to express the wholesome devotion of these young people to the task of their life, starting out as they had done on a new farm with everything to make for the present and future too. One thing, however, must be said to their credit, and that is they did not either neglect or forget their obligation to the church, as should always be the case. They in the fear of God put first things first. Laura was organist at Hawley Church, a post which she faithfully and lovingly filled. Ralph was a member of the Official Board, was Secretary of the Trustee Board and Secretary of the Sunday School, and all of these duties were faithfully performed, the value of which will never be forgotten.

The funeral service was held at the home of the deceased's parents, where the body was brought, and notwithstanding the bitter cold weather, hundreds of people gathered to pay their last respects. Pastor Hoffman conduced the service, assisted by the Rev. W.H. Truscott, and so there closed one of the saddest chapters in the history of South Fredericksburgh.

There is an unending expression of sympathy for the young widow by everybody; also for Mr. and Mrs. Archie Parks, the parents, together with the five brothers and two sisters.

William J.

 

It is with sadness that we are called upon to chronicle the demise of William J. Parks, who passed away early yesterday morning, at the age of thirty-two years, four months and one day. Deceased had been very poorly for the last six months, and had been slowly getting worse, until Thursday afternoon, when he took a sudden change for the worse. Deceased was a young man, liked by all he came in contact with, and his sudden departure from this world of care and sorrow has cast a gloom over the immediate vicinity. His last hours were spent in peace and happiness, and he died trusting in the Redeemer. The sympathy of the community at large is extended to his grief stricken relatives, who deeply feel the loss of such a good brother. The funeral, which was largely attended, took place this afternoon at three o'clock, and his remains were laid at rest in the Huffman cemetery.

PARROTT - At Camden East, on Sunday, Jan 10th, 1915, Herman H. Parrott, aged 62 years.

 

OBITUARY - The death of Herman H. Parrott, of Camden East, on the 10th of this month, removes from this community a man who will be very much missed.  Mr. Parrott was born and lived on the old homestead, near Switzerville, until fifteen years ago when he moved with his father and mother to Camden East in order to be near his only sister, Mrs. L. H. Stover.  Since his removal he was engaged in handling stock through this section.  He was a close and careful buyer, but his straightforwardness soon won for him the confidence and esteem of the whole community.  He was a member of the Methodist church and a regular attendant at its services.  He was also a strong temperance man, who always gave his vote to abolish the bar, and his personal influence to impress the young men he came in contact with  never to form the habit of drink.  Herman, as he was called by his friends, was a quiet unassuming man, but his fondness of humor and pleasant helpfulness made him a great favorite with his friends both old and young.

He devoted nearly all his life to the loving care of his father and mother, who lived to a great age;  his father being both deaf and blind for years and very helpless.  To some sons that would have been a great burden and care, but not so to Herman.  It seemed to him a pleasure to look after his dear old parents and minister to their wants, answering every whim and notion, and doing everything in his power to make them as comfortable and happy as possible.  In fact his life in this respect furnished one of the most beautiful illustrations of devotion we have ever witnessed.

He was confined to his bed about three months.  During his illness he never murmured, but seemed perfectly resigned to God’s will.  He sent for a number of his old associates and asked them to meet him in Heaven.  For the last six weeks he was unable to speak.  All the care and attention willing hands and loving heart could give him was of no avail.  He leaves to mourn his loss an only sister, Mrs. L. H. Stover, of Camden East, whom he loved very dearly, and three brothers, Emerson, of Saskatoon;  Byron of Blackie, Alberta, and Arthur, on the old homestead.

The funeral services, which were held in the Methodist Church, Camden East, were very largely attended evidencing the esteem in which he was held by the whole community.

Patton,

Archdeacon

 

ARCHDEACON PATTON, D.D. - The late much lamented Archdeacon Patton was born of English parentage about the year 1806, in the County of Donegal, Ireland, and the son of Major Patton of the British army.  He came with his parents at an early age to Canada, and the Patton family settled on the Bay of Quinte, in the township of Adolphustown.  He, in his early years, was educated (in part at least) under the Rev. J. Braithvaite, M.A., Rector of Chambly, in the province of Quebec, who was an eminent teacher in those early days of provincial educational matters.  In or about the 1829, he was ordained successively deacon and priest by the then Bishop of Quebec, (Canada’s only bishop at that period) the Hon. Right Reverend Charles James Stewart, D. D., and was appointed to the then mission of Kemptville, where he laboured many years very successfully as its first rector;  and no one can visit that interesting parish, but must note the enduring effects of the pastoral zeal and energetic efforts of that first able and judicious parochial administrator.  In 1846, he was appointed by the late Bishop in Toronto in succession to himself and such other zealous men as Salter J. Mountain, Archbold, and Lindsay, Rector of Cornwall,  Here, for a period of over twenty-five years he laboured and successfully too, following directly in the wake of such great missionary spirits, and contributed largely to make Cornwall the model parish of the Diocese of Ontario in order, liberality and zealous parochial efforts.  Whilst Cornwall and the whole of the Diocese of Ontario was a portion of that of Toronto, he was latterly Rural Dean of the Eastern District, which position he continued to hold until the new one of the former was created.  Here his zeal and ability were pre-eminent, as in other matters.  About fourteen years ago the degree of Doctor of Civil Law, or D. C. L., was conferred upon him by the University of Trinity College, Toronto.  In 1871, he was unanimously elected Prolocutor of the Provincial Synod assembling in Montreal, and in succession to the Rev. Dr. Beaven, of Toronto, who had previously held the office at each session since its constitution in 1861.  Again, in the special sessions held in 1872 and 1873, which resulted in the election of the Missionary Bishop of Algoma, he most ably filled the Prolucutor’s chair as at first.  On the death of the late Rector of Belleville, the Rev. John Grier, M.A., in October, 1871, Archdeacon Patton, was nominated to the Rectory, and he was inducted as such on the 30th of November of the same year.  During his brief tenure of office in Belleville, the beautiful Grier memorial window in St. Thomas’ Church, and the new and elegant ecclesiastical rectory are momentoes of his zeal and energy, and the noble Bishop Strachan Memorial Church, in its origination and construction was one of the latest of his zealous efforts at Cornwall, previous to his leaving it. The foundation stone of this structure was laid in 1869.  It is now one of the most stately and beautiful ecclesiastical churches in the Diocese.  - Intelligencer

JAMES HARVEY PAUL - On Sunday afternoon, November 25th, 1917, J. Harvey Paul died at his residence, north of Newburgh.  Oldest son of James and Hannah Wood Paul, he was born April 1st, 1841 at the homestead occupied by Joseph Paul.  Educated at Newburgh Grammar School, he obtained a teacher’s certificate and taught school.  He also assisted on his father’s farm until he went to California during the gold rush in 1862.  He returned after five years’ sojourn in the mining camps, where he had many companions.  He had fever at San Francisco, when his brother, Will, joined him there.  Will was kidnapped and taken on a whaling vessel.  He was married on September 9th, 1868 to Mary Dunlop by Rev. James Gray.  he and his bride moved to a farm near Lonsdale, where they lived until 1875, when he bought his grandmother Woods’ farm, which has now been occupied by a member of the family for nearly a century.  He joined the Methodist Church at Lonsdale in 1869, and has continued a faithful member of the Wesley Church until his death.  Of a kind disposition and honest as the day, fair in his dealings, a faithful husband and a loving father.  He leaves a large number of relatives and a host of friends to mourn his loss.  Quiet and unostentatious, he believed in family and private prayer and bible study.  He was also a member of the Church Board at Wesley.  The minister was always a welcome visitor to his home.  He is survived by his widow, nine sons and two daughters.  George B., electrical mining engineer at Gem, Idaho;  Dr. J. Harvey, of Jamesville, N.Y.;  N. Franklin, farmer, near Prince Albert;  Reuben, of Regina;  John S., Ontario Government Audit Office;  R.

On Tuesday, November 27th, his Pastor, Rev. E. Farnsworth, conducted a short service at the house at one o’clock, and a service at the Methodist Church, Newburgh, at two o’clock.  The Pastor spoke feelingly from Rev. 7:9.  He said Brother Paul was a genuine kindly Christian.  He had hosts of friends, but he had not heard of one enemy.  A large concourse of relatives, and friends followed his remains to the vault.   Those who knew him best will miss him most.  The widow and family have the loving sympathy of the whole community.

PAUL - At Camden on Sunday, 10th October 1909, William M. Paul, aged 66 years and 8 months.

 

WILLIAM MATTHEW PAUL - At his home, near {ripped page}, after four days’ illness {ripped page}  of October 10th, 1909, there passed peacefully to his rest, one of Camden’s most successful farmers, Mr. Wm. M. Paul, in his 67th year.  Deceased was born on the old home farm, now occupied by Joseph Paul, near Newburgh, March 24th, 1843.  He was the second son in the family of eight sons and four daughters of the late Jas. Paul.  He received his education at Newburgh Grammar school, obtaining a first-class certificate and also succeeded in passing his exams in Civil Engineering. 

Mr. Paul was a man of unusual intelligence, having read and travelled much.  When nineteen years of age, his health being delicate, he took a trip to San Francisco.  While there he and some of  his companions were decoyed on board a whaling vessel, and there forcibly detained.  When Mr. Paul found himself kidnapped and the vessel had set sail, he made the best of the situation and went manfully to work to learn the management of the ship and soon became a favorite with master and men.  After six months whale-fishing he was allowed to go ashore at a South American port, where he secreted himself until his ship left port, then by the directions of Spaniards, whose language he could not speak he found a British ship bound for Australia, on which he took passage and from thence he made his way homeward via Scotland and England, visiting and studying many of the historic towns, especially Westminster Abbey.  He arrived home, after an absence of four years.  His journeyings had thoroughly restored his health, and on Nov. 5th, 1872, he married Elizabeth Hinch, and settled on a farm near Wesley church, where he has been so faithful a worker.  He made a life study of his Bible, and was a capable class leader and representative of the Wesley appointment, at the General Board of Newburgh Circuit.  But in the Sunday School was where Mr. Paul did his most effective work.  In him each child felt it had a personal friend and companion, and each juvenile ambition was to do or be “like Mr. Paul,” and it is small wonder that he and Mr. A. V. Price, (now retired), have gathered around them the largest Sunday School on the Newburgh Circuit.

As energetic physically as mentally, his death came as a shock to all who knew him, so gracefully was he growing old, one scarcely realized he was nearing the allotted threescore and ten years.  The widow and sons have the sympathy of the community in their loss of a wise, kind and loving husband and father.  The surviving sons are Walter and Norman, of Hinch;  Vernon and Percy, at home.  The brothers are Harvey and Joseph, of Newburgh;  Stuart, of Bath;  Shirley and Robert, of Saskatchewan, and Henry, of Kingston.  The sisters are Mrs. Matilda Clancy, Newburgh;  Miss Eliza Paul, Prince Albert, and Miss Hannah Paul, missionary to the Tsimpshean Indians at Port Simpson, B.C., now home on furlough.  Rev. M. E. Sexsmith, his pastor, between whom and deceased existed a warm friendship and Christian fellowship, preached an eloquent sermon from II Cor., 4:16.

Obituary - The Kingston Whig of last week reports the death of Charles Penner, Esq., of Kingston, aged 88 years.  Mr. Penner was well known and highly respected by many readers of the EXPRESS.  He was a gentleman of wealth and liberality and much kindness of heart.  For years Mr. Penner owned a farm in Adolphustown, where he spent his summers, and took great satisfaction in introducing improved implements and systems of husbandry, as well as superior breeds of farm stock.  There is no doubt but the system of farming in Adolphustown, and in the county was much improved by the influence he exerted.  He was a fine type of the real “English Gentleman”  and will long be remembered with pleasure by those who knew him.

THE LATE MRS. PERCEVAL  - Was the Daughter of Leading Family of County Down. -  Old friends attended the burial service in St. Paul’s church on Saturday afternoon  for the late Mrs. Harriett Perceval, who passed away on Friday at the age of ninety-three years and eleven months.  Canon FitzGerald made a very touching reference to the deceased venerable lady, whose life, he said, had been on of sweetness and gentleness.  Her home for years was the centre of many of the activities of St. Paul’s church.  Canon FitzGerald said that among the old friends who had come to look upon the face of the deceased for the last time was an aged man who when a boy had lived near the family home of Mrs. Perceval at Echlinville, County Down, Ireland.  He said that Mrs. Perceval, who was then Miss Echlin, the daughter of one of the leading families of the county, was a beautiful young lady, and on Sundays he used to watch for her arrival at the parish church.  She would drive up in a  coach-and-four, and the footman would procede her into the church carrying her books to the family pew.  That was about seventy-five years ago, and the memory of those far-off days lingered with the old man whom Canon FitzGerald said he brought to the Perceval home on Brock street to see the lady of boyhood memory who had lived to such a ripe old age.

THE LATE E. PERRY, ESQ. - SOME PARTICULARS OF HIS USEFUL LIFE

From a very full and eulogistic sketch of the life of the late Ebenezer Perry, Esq., reeve of Sheffield, published in the Tamworth Echo we glean the following particulars: -

Mr. Perry was twice married, first to Isabel Vrooman on the 22nd of Feb. 1826, and lastly to Jennet Bartles, 10th Aug., 1856.  By his first wife he had eight sons and two daughters, all of whom are married but one, Thomas.  One daughter is married to Wilson Clark and the other to Peter F. Carscallen.  The second marriage brought no issue, and the second wife, now widowed, is the recipient of much sympathy.

He entered public life in 1840 as councillor, being elected to that office in and for Ernesttown, and remained continuously in the Council up to 1858.  In 1856 he was appointed Crown Lands Agent, and took up his residence in Tamworth.  He was elected reeve of Sheffield in 1861, and was elected warden in 1872.  Altogether he filled the office of Reeve for Sheffield thirteen years and with great credit to himself and profit to the municipality;   and closed an eventful life retaining the confidence of the public and wearing the honor of that office, having been elected last January without any effort on his part.

During his county councillorship many important questions were fought out and set at rest;  among them the separation of Lennox and Addington from Frontenac, and establishing the County Town;  there having been a keen strife between Napanee and Newburgh for tit.  He gave his vote and influence in favor of Napanee, and it is mainly due to him that Napanee got it.

His supervision of Sheffield matters in the council was most successful, and distinguished him as a man of sense, and devoted to the work of improvement and building up.  His great influence in the county council enabled him to get large sums of money on county roads;  sometimes obtaining out of the county funds grants for county roads in Sheffield of a greater amount than the County rate paid into the treasurer.  So that he was “father of the Township” (as he was often styled) in many respects.

In the election of 1872, for the Ontario Legislature, Mr. Perry was brought out as a candidate for the riding of Addington, and was backed by all the old and influential politicians of the riding; but the young men chose Mr. Deroche, the present member, and as the Conservative candidate, Mr. Hooper, was a young man, and the boys of both parties were spoiling for a fight, Mr. Perry magnanimously waved his superior claim in Mr. Deroche’s favor and that after issuing his address.  That address showed how deeply he had the true interests of the province at heart, and especially this portion of it.  Had he been elected he would have proven his ability commensurate with the wider field. He was by nature a politician and so keen in debate that few cared to do him battle.  All through life he was a Reformer and an active worker in that party.

Obituary - Edith May Perry

Following an illness of several months duration, there passed away at the home of her son, Ray F. Perry, Morven, on Sunday morning, May 27th, one of the best known and highly esteemed residents of this district, in the person of Mrs. Edith May Perry, wife of Mr. A.B. Perry in her 69th year. Throughout the several months of her illness, she was tenderly cared for by her family. Her life partner has also been in ill-health for several months.

A daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.F. Parks, deceased was born at Hay Bay where she spent her early years. There she took an active interest in the work of the church and when she left her home district, was greatly missed. In 1890, she was united in marriage to Mr. Perry, a well-known farmer of the Hay Bay district. In 1908, they left Hay Bay and moved to Morven district, where they continued farming. Retiring from the active duties of the farm, they moved to Napanee in 1919, where Mr. Perry went in the coal business and with the exception of the past several months, Napanee had been their home since that time.

Mrs. Perry, although of a retiring disposition, had a splendid personality and her friends were many.

Besides her husband, she leaves to mourn her loss, two sons, Ray F. Perry and Morley Perry, and one daughter, Mrs. Sperry Fraser. There is also one brother Newton Parks, and two sisters, Mrs. William Hambly and Mrs.  J.N. Hambly

The funeral service was held on Tuesday, May 29th, from the residence of her son, Ray, and was conducted by Rev. M. Oliver of Morven. Interment took place in the Morven Cemetery. Pall-bearers were Mr. W.J. Trenouth, Mr. W.R. Scott, Capt. A.S. Hughson, Mr. W.E. Cummings, Mr. A.N. Fraser and Mr. A.G. Curle.

Mrs. P. had been severely afflicted in body for the last three years which she bore with christian patience and resignation; and, as her days seemed drawing to a close, her evidence of her acceptance grew brighter and brighter, so that she was constantly enabled to declare that death had lost its sting - that she had a sure and will grounded hope, and could declare that she knew she "had a building not made with hands, eternal in the heavens."

(nee Washburn)

 

Died at Ernest Town, the 12th of January instant, Jemima Perry, wife of Robert Perry, Senr. and sister of the late Ebenezer Washburn, Esq. of Hallowell, in the 76th year of her age. Her remains were interred on the 14th, with every mark of real but unostentatious grief and respect.

In the beginning of last November, she was seized with a distressing asthmatic affection, which finally terminated her life, and which she endured with Christian patience & resignation to the will of heaven.

Mrs. Perry was born in the Province of Massachusetts; and came with her husband and family into this Province, among its first settlers.

She has left an aged partner, with whom she had lived in conjugal union and affection 58 years; seven children; a numerous train of grand children and great grand children; and a large circle of friends and acquaintances. Her loss is extensively felt. In the various relations of life, as a wife, a mother, a sister, a neighbour, and a member of civil and Christian society, her exemplary conduct entitled her to the esteem of all who knew her.

In early life she embraced the religion of Jesus Christ, and was a member of the Methodist Church about 40 years, during which period she gave practical evidence of the sincerity of her profession. She was distinguished for charity and hospitality. Her doors were always open to the weary pilgrim. Like the Shunaninite in the days of Elisha, in concurrence with her hospitable, pious husband, she often furnished for the missionary 'man of God' a chamber by the wall, with a bed, a table, a chair, and a candlestick, that, when passing that way, he might turn in and lodge there and eat bread, as the Prophet did of old; and, for many years, her house was an occasional chapel for religious worship. While able, she was a strict attendant upon the appointed ordinances and means of grace. Having, by her example, taught surviving friends how to live, she was enabled by Divine grace to teach them the more difficult lesson, how to die. She left the world in a triumph of faith. "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord."

OBITUARY – J. RUD PERRY – Universal consternation was expressed in Napanee on Tuesday afternoon last when it was learned that Mr. J. Bud Perry had died suddenly at Strathmore, Alberta. Deceased and Mr. J. M. Bogart left about two weeks ago for the Northwest with a large consignment of young cattle.  They reached  their destination about forty miles east of Calgary, without mishap, and all was apparently going well.  On Tuesday afternoon three telegrams arrived at the same hour, one from deceased stating that his cold was better and the cattle were grazing near Strathmore. The second was from Mr. Bogart, stating that Mr. Perry had died that morning, and a third from  A. B. Perry, Regina, who had also been notified of his brother’s death.  Deceased was suffering from a severe cold when he left Napanee, and it is most probable pneumonia set in and caused his sudden death.  Mr. Perry was a victim of heart trouble which complication no doubt produced the suddenly fatal result.  Mr. J. Rud. Perry was a son of the late Wm. Perry, of Violet, and leaves a bereaved wife and two daughters; also a brother, Commissioner A. I. Perry, Regina, of the Mounted Police and Mrs. W. A. Rockwell, Napanee and Mrs. Isaac Fraser, Ernesttown and Mrs. Leonard Davy, Pennelville, N.Y., half sisters.  Heart failure carried off three brothers:  Rev. Nathan Perry, Ludlow, Vermont;  Daniel Perry and Edwin Perry, Violet.   Deceased was a civil engineer and engaged in his profession for years in the Northwest, assisting in the survey of the main line of the Canada Pacific .  He spent several years in Northern British Columbia, and in the Yukon as a miner, and was a man of wide experience, and a most entertaining conversationalist and companion.  For the past four years he engaged in cattle raising, and last year sold his large ranch at Carstairs, Alberta, and returned to Napanee to reside. Mrs. Perry and her daughters, Augusta and Pearl, as well as the bereaved relatives, have the sympathy of all our citizens in this their hour of trial.  His brother, Commissioner Perry left Calgary with the remains on Wednesday midnight, and will not likely arrive in Napanee until Sunday night.  The funeral will probably be held at his late residence on Monday afternoon at 3 o’clock.  A despatch received yesterday stated Mr. Perry died suddenly of heart failure.

William Hawley

 

William Hawley Perry, Esq., - one of the old and highly respected residents of this county, died at the residence of his son, Mr. J. Rud Perry, C.E., here on Monday morning last, after a brief sickness of four days, aged 87 years. Mr. Perry was born in Ernesttown on the 10th of November 1810, and spent all his life time in his native township. He was a man of great energy and industry and did well his share in building up this county and making it what it is. His father, Daniel Perry, was also a life long resident of the same township, a U.E. Loyalist, and well-known and successful farmer. He had a family of nine children, of whom the deceased was the last survivor.

When Mr. Perry was yet a young man in his teens he bought from the Crown an uncleared farm at what is now the Village of Violet, on which he built a log house, such as nearly all his neighbors had at that time. On that farm he spent all the active days of his very busy life. Being a man of much energy he also engaged in other lines of business. At one time, in company with his brother, the late A.B. Perry, Esq., he owned and carried on a saw mill and a grist mill in the same locality. He had an interest in large contracts in building, years ago, the Addington Government Colonization road, and the large bridge across the Madawaska River, at what is now the Village of Combermere and also in the carpenter work of our County Court House here in Napanee over thirty years ago. He was for a time a member of the council of Ernesttown and took an active interest in municipal and political affairs. He also represented the township in the county council. In politics he was a Liberal and did much to assist in the elections of David Roblin and the earlier elections of Sir Richard Cartwright in this county. He was also an active temperance man and took a prominent part in the old Dunkin Act contests in Ernesttown in the early sixties. He was nearly a life long member of the Methodist church and took an active interest in all that pertained to its work. He often referred to the fact that he was converted at the age of 15 years, under the ministration of Father Healy, one of the pioneer Methodist preachers, at the old "Fourth Concession Chapel," the second Methodist church built in Upper Canada. He always remained a faithful member thereafter, and was at his regular place in the church here the Sunday previous to his death. Only a few Sunday evenings before he fell pretty heavily in leaving the church and the injuries he then received, no doubt, hastened his end. He remained on his farm till a few months ago when he left it to spend the remainder of his days with his son, Mr. J. Rud Perry of John st.

Mr. Perry was twice married, first to a daughter of the late Nathan Fellows, of Ernesttown and a sister of James Fellows, Esq., of East street. She died many years ago leaving some children. He afterwards married Eleanor, daughter of Capt. Daniel Fraser, who was a native of the locality of violet, and who survives him. Though now over 80 years of age she was constantly at his bed side from his first sickness until his eyes were closed in death. After he ceased to be able to speak the deceased by his eyes, with their looks, and kindly smiles, gave indication of his loving recognition of his faithful life companion. His end was very gentle and peaceful and such as Lord chesterfield said to a young sceptic, "See how a Christian can die."

Mr. Perry had nine children, only five of whom survive him. these are Martha, Mrs. W.A. Rockwell, of John street; Sarah, wife of Isaac Fraser, of Ernesttown; Electa, wife of Rev. Leonard Davy, of Pennelville, N.Y.; J. Rud, of Napanee, and Major A.B., of the North West Mounted Police, who has returned from his trip to England and Ireland, where he was in charge of the N.W.M.P. during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration, but was taken ill in Montreal on his return and was unable to be present at the deathbed or funeral. Two of his children, Mrs. James F. Madden, York road, and Edwin died within the past year or two.

The funeral services were held at his late residence on Tuesday afternoon and were of a private character; the body being deposited in the vault here, but will be buried in the violet cemetery, beside those of several members of the family. The services were conducted by his late pastor, Rev. W. Coombe, of Violet. Dr. Crothers, Rev. W. Limbert, Selby, and Rev. E. S. Shorey also assisted.

Died - On Monday the 16th instant, in the 3rd Concession of the Township of Adolphustown in the Midland District of Canada West, Mr. Nicholas Peterson Sen., in the 89th year of his age. Mr. P. was born in the city of New York, served during the American Revolution, was severely wounded on the head in that long and arduous struggle, and left for dead on the field. Immediately after the peace of 1783, he, his wife and one child, with Major Holland's corps removed to Sorell (now William Henry) in Canada East, spent the winter there and then proceeded to Kingston where the corps remained until the Spring of 1785. Thence the party proceeded to Adolphustown and drew lands as U.E. Loyalists, where Mr. P. has resided for 61 years. For many years he was one of the most extensive farmers in either Adolphustown or Fredericksburgh, and has left a family of 8 sons and 3 daughters, and a numerous progeny of Grand-children and Great-grand-children. The immediate cause of his death arose from a severe fall which he received about the commencement of last December - from which time he gradually wore away till the time of his dissolution.

OBITUARY - ROBERT PHILLIPS - for years, principal of Napanee Public and High Schools, died at Fergus, Ont., on Sunday, 26th , aged 78 years. Mr. Phillips was, away back in the sixties and for years previous to that, one of most successful teachers and one of the most respected citizens of this county. He came from Scotland when a young man, and was at first employed in Squire Asselstine's factory on Mill Creek, a few miles below Odessa. He was then induced to take his first school. That was about in 1842 and he taught there three years. He then went to Bath and taught successfully there for six years. In 1855 he was induced to come to Napanee and take charge of the Grammar School here. The school buildings were then located on Robert street, just back of where the Western Methodist church now stands. The trustees here then were Dr. Carey, chairman; John Benson, secretary; John Stevenson, Jas. Blakely, Allan Templeton and John Gibbard. All are now gone but our venerable townsman, John Gibbard. Napanee was then a village of 1,400 inhabitants, and some of our now leading townsmen in Napanee and the county were among his pupils. He continued to teach here until 1867, when he voluntarily retired, much to the regret of the townspeople. He moved to Fergus, where he has ever since lived. He was also a leading spirit in the Presbyterian church here and took an active interest in the building of the present church. He was a man very highly respected and much beloved, and did well his duty in his day and generation. (**Beaver Aug 31 1900)

(nee Marshall)

 

MARY E. PHILP - Daughter of John and Mary Marshall, was born in Port Hope on the 11th of July, 1859, and died in Hamilton on the 7th of February, 1886.  She was baptized by the Rev. Richard Whiting, now President of the Montreal Conference.  She was surrounded by the influences of a religious home, and when yet a child accepted Christ as her Saviour, under the ministry of the late Rev. J. B. Howard.  She subsequently lost to some extent the evidence of her acceptance with God, but in a series of revival services conducted by the Rev. John Philp, M.A., during his pastorate in Wesley Church, there was restored unto her the joy of God’s salvation, and she united with the Church.  On the 26th of November, 1884, she was married to Mr. Henry Philp, and the union was one which promised long years of happiness, but alas ! in the hour of deepest joy, a dark cloud overshadowed the home, and the young wife and mother was told that medical skill could do no more, and that she was already in the valley.  She was neither terrified nor agitated.  As the writer and her relatives met in the chamber of death, and, at her request, dedicated her babe to God in Christian baptism, many were the words of faith and victory which fell from her lips.  With a full clear voice she sang, “I’m going home to die no more,”  the same words which her sainted father sang on his death-bed.  It was my mournful privilege to impress the lessons of her life and death upon the minds and hearts of a large congregation in Wesley Church (Hamilton), from the words of the prophet,  “Her sun is gone down while it was yet day.”  [signed]  W.J. Hunter.

FANNY PHIPPEN – Just three months ago, the late lamented William Phippen died, and now the family have suffered a second terrible bereavement in the death of the eldest daughter,  Fanny Phippen, a noble young woman.  She was laid in the vault at Sandhurst on Sunday last, the 12th, inst., amid a large concourse of deeply sorrowing relatives and friends.  Miss Phippen was deservedly beloved and valued by all who knew her.  She will be greatly missed by her family, her church, and by the whole community;  for one more useful, more unselfish, or more charitable it would be hard to find in all the land.  Her funeral sermon was preached in St. Paul’s church, Sandhurst, by the Rev. R. S. Forneri, on Sunday morning, from the text, “In my Father’s house are many mansions,” a text, the preacher said, suggested by an observation of the deceased on her death bed.  “Why should I fear death,” she said, “it is only like going from one room to another of my Father’s house.”  The sermon was devoted to the expanding of this beautiful and consoling idea, which embodied the truth, that earth and heaven and paradise, the world visible and the world invisible are only so many shadows of our Father’s house.  In the course of the sermon the preacher described the Christian character of the departed.  “She had remembered her Creator, he said, in the days of her youth, and consecrated her earliest years to Christ.  She had so numbered her days as to have accomplished life’s great end while it was yet morning, and hence she met the early summons to depart, and death’s awful conflict with a heart sweetly subdued by grace, with a faith in God which many waters could not quench, and with a hope of glory and blessedness to be realized in heaven, which shone out full and bright over the valley of the shadow of death, and cheered her passage through it.”

Cold, cold lies the sod on a heart once as warm

As ever to earth was given,

And sadly and wild moans the winter’s storm,

On as gentle a breast and comely a form,

As ever seemed moulded for Heaven.

He married a daughter of the late Richard Scobell, of Kingston, who, with a grown up family of four sons and three daughters, will mourn the loss of one dear to them, noted alike for his industry and integrity and kindness of heart.

DIED IN EARLY YOUTH -  On Monday morning about 10 o’clock, death entered the home of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Pizzariello, and claimed the spirit of their eldest son, Master Danny, a bright and manly young lad of eleven years.   About three weeks ago he was stricken with typhoid fever and slowly grew worse until last Saturday night he seemed decidedly better, so much so that the parents and friends felt satisfied that the chances for recovery were exceedingly bright.  Later that same evening he became worse again and slowly failed until the Angel of Death took him away on Monday morning, despite all that medical attendance and kind and loving care could do.  Danny was a great favourite among his playmates and will be sadly missed by his schoolmates at the West Ward School.  Among the beautiful floral tributes were a spray of carnations from the scholars in Miss Caton’s room, of which deceased was a  member;  spray of carnations from Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Waller;  large cross of assorted flowers from his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. I. Cesare;  spray of carnations from Mrs. F. F.

Father O’Connor in St. Patrick’s R. C. Church after which, the remains were place in the vault of the R. C.

(Sillsville) - A gloom was cast over out community when it became known that Mrs. Belinda Post had died very suddenly. The late Mrs. Post lived alone, and although over seventy-nine years old, she did her usual work every day, and on Sunday morning when a neighbor's child called, he found the door fastened, and he informed his parents who immediately investigated. They too could not waken her when they rapped and called, so they entered the house to see. They found the lamp still burning, and evidently Mrs. Post was preparing for bed, and had expired, falling over in the bed. The funeral was held from her late home on Tuesday.  She leaves one son to mourn, Mr. D. Post, of Bath.

Allison University, and at the age of nineteen successfully passed the Civil Service examinations, receiving a certificate of proficiency.  Up to 1907 he was a popular salesman of farm machinery, etc., for the International Harvester Co.  In 1908, he went into Railway construction work, and previous to enlisting was employed as foreman of concrete bridge work with the Dominion Construction Co. of Toronto.  He enlisted with the 146th Battalion in January, 1916, went overseas in September, and was sent to France in December.  He leaves to mourn their loss, his wife, three sons and one daughter.  He was the only son of Mr. William W. Powell, of Moncton, New Brunswick, who survives him, as do also his three sisters.  In religion, Pte. Powell was an Anglican, and received Holy Communion, Good Friday, April 6th, just before going into the Battle of Vimy Ridge, of which he wrote, saying he was proud to have had the honour of being among the brave boys who went “over the top”.

“And now near the long, fierce battle line

He sleeps, near the gallantest graves of all

With the bravely dumb, who did their deed,

In God’s still memory folded deep. 

Where the fight for freedom still sways and rolls,

There, he gave the glorious last salute,

To the Captain of all brave souls.”

(nee Demille)

 

MRS. ANDREW V. PRICE (ADELAIDE DEMILLE) -  The subject of this sketch, was born at Northport, Jan 3d, 1831, and died at Newburgh, July 6th, 1904.  Her father was Peter I. Demille of United Empire Loyalist stock, one of the sturdy pioneers to whose intelligence and integrity we owe so much in the making of our country.  Nurtured by the rippling waters of the Bay of Quinte and amongst the graves and orchards of Prince Edward County, she retained throughout a long life, a passionate fondness for nature in all her variant moods.  In the early fifties she attended the Normal School at Toronto, which was then showing the influence of the strong mind of Dr. Sangster.  The trip to Toronto was made by stage coach.  The writer has heard her describe the city as it then was - a commons north of Carleton St., and only a  sparse settlement between Carleton and Queen sts.  Afterwards she attended for a time the Newburgh Grammar School, which was then the leading educational institution of the district.  In September 1855 she was married to Andrew V. Price of Camden township who still remains to mourn a faithful companion and affectionate wife.  Her talents and nature were such that she would have adorned any station and in the sphere, into which Providence cast her life, she served with eminent ability.  In all that pertains to the duties of wife and mother she evidenced superior sagacity, devotion and kindness.  Her end was sudden, but found her not unprepared.  From earliest years, an ardent Christian and a consistent member of the Methodist Church, she ripened in Christian character with the progress of the years and toward the last had been literally living in heavenly places in Jesus Christ.  The Bible reading for  her last day was about the heavenly mansions prepared, and though still in usual health, the theme impressed her sufficiently that she called her husband’s attention to it and together they made it the subject of comment and pleasant anticipation.  While driving through the streets of Newburgh with her husband on the afternoon of the 6th of July, the horse shied at a wheel that was being run across the road from one carriage shop to another, and after running a short distance, upset the buggy, resulting in fatal shock to herself and serious injury to Mr. Price.  She lived but fifteen minutes after the accident and was scarcely conscious but though not privileged to leave a parting message to those she loved, she had already done this in writing unknown to the family.  Needless to say they consider this a priceless treasure.  Six sons carried the mortal tenement to the grave. The funeral address was preached by Rev. J. F. Mears to a large assembly of sympathizing friends.  Of a large family all were present save one,  Mrs. Malcolm C. Shorey of San Dimas California.  Other daughters are Mrs. W. J. Delmage of Camden, Mrs. J. F. Hawley of Napanee, and Mrs. M. H. Coburn of Pentwater, Mich.  Her sons are A. M. Price and Dr. Weston A. Price, M.E. of Cleveland O.: Dr. F. D. Price of Toronto;  Dr. Norman W. Price B. Sc. of Niagara Falls, U.S;  Rev T. W. Price B.A. of Elm Creek, Man, and Reginald B. Price, who resides at home.  These all, with the father, share a lively expectation of meeting the sainted wife and mother when travelling days are done.   If lives are measured by influences we feel no hesitation in saying that the subject of this sketch has blessed the world with the most potent and permanent kind of service.  Truly she being dead yet speaketh.  Her children shall rise up and call her blessed.

Died, at her residence, in Newburgh, on Thursday morning, the 26th ult, Catherine V., the beloved wife of Thomas Price, Esq.

The deceased, who was long and favorably known, both in Newburgh and the adjacent county, was born in the year 1807, in Adolphustown in the vicinity of Hay Bay. In 1828 she was united in marriage to her now bereaved and sorrowing partner, and with him shared the toils and privations of life peculiar to the new country, residing for over forty years in the township of Camden. Mrs. Price was for nearly fifty years a consistent member of the C.M. Church. She had the comfort and satisfaction of seeing her interesting family grow up around her and several of them called to occupy positions of respect and responsibility, both in the Church and the world. - "Her children arise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he doth praise her." For several years the deceased was the subject of severe bodily suffering which she bore with Christian fortitude and resignation, and although long an invalid, yet she endured her protracted affliction without murmuring - disposed to say, "All the days of my appointed time will I wait till my change come."

The funeral services were conducted last Sabbath morning by the Superintendent of the circuit, in the C.M. Church of this place, where a large congregation had assembled. After the usual service at the Church a large procession followed the remains to the Newburgh cemetery.

(Judge)

 

Death of Judge Price – PASSED AWAY AT 2:30 O’CLOCK FRIDAY MORNING – Retired in Splendid Spirits – Spent Thirty-five Years on Bench – Was Seventy-nine Years of Age – Sketch of His Career.

Judge Price of Kingston, died suddenly about 2:30 o’clock Friday morning, from heart failure.  His death came as a cruel surprise to family and friends, as it was wholly unexpected.  He retired Thursday night in splendid spirits.  As usual, he spent the evening with his family, and all commented on the fact  that he seemed to be feeling unusually well.  He was downtown Thursday afternoon, and discoursed brightly with all with whom he came in contact.  No one who witnessed his joviality and sprightliness expected to hear next morning of his passing.  Such an expectation was farthest from their minds.  But such is life.  Often the sun of happiness is quickly obscured by the dark clouds of grief.  Shortly after two o’clock in the morning the Judge awakened his daughter, Miss Price, being in much distress from his heart.  She telephoned for Howard S. Folger and family and for a doctor, but before they arrived he had passed away.  Mr. Folger and family, who had left him only a few hours before, were grief-stricken to find him lying cold in death.

 

THIRTY-FIVE YEARS ON BENCH – judge Price spent over thirty-five years on the bench, retiring in the latter part of 1913.  He was an excellent judge, learned in the law, kindly and discerning.  He always tempered justice with mercy, and being a keen student of human nature, he rarely made a mistake in those to whom he gave an opportunity to forget the past.  His judgments were invariably sound, and it was a rare thing for an appeal to be taken and a rarer thing for it to be allowed.

 

SKETCH OF CAREER – Cornelius Valleau Price was the son of Thomas Price, and his wife, Catherine Valleau, both of United Empire Loyalist descent, and was born in the Township of Camden, Addington County, in 1837.  He was educated at the Newburgh Grammar School and at queen’s University, from which he graduated an L.L.B. in 1863.  He was called to the bar in 1865 and practised his profession at Kingston in partnership with B. M. Britton, now Justice Britton, Toronto.  He was appointed judge of the County of Frontenac by the Earl of Dufferin, May 25 1878, and a Surrogate Judge of the Maritime Court of Ontario by the Marquis of Lorne, March 3, 1879.  He sat in the Kingston City Council from 1870 to 1873, representing St. Lawrence Ward.  He was one of the promoters of the Kingston and Pembroke Railway, and was the first solicitor to that company. He was also a trustee of the Collegiate Institute and a governor of the General Hospital.  He was elected President of The Ontario Building and Savings Society of Kingston in 1897.  In religion the late judge was a Methodist, and was a faithful attendant of Sydenham Street Church. He was a Liberal in politics, and previous to his appointment to the bench took a deep interest in his party. 

 

HIS PRIVATE LIFE – In 1868 he married Elizabeth, daughter of the late John Waudby, formerly Clerk of the Peace, Kingston.  After nearly half a century of singular happiness, Mrs. Price passed away a year ago last June.  The Judge and Mrs. Price were much devoted to each other, and her passing was a sad loss to him.  Two daughters, Mrs. Howard S. Folger and Miss Ida Price, survive, and much sympathy is expressed to them on the passing of an affectionate father.  Judge Price will be much missed.  He was a kind man, a good citizen and a firm friend.

OBITUARIES - THE LATE E. R. PRICE -

The death of Edward Rogers Price of Empey Hill, which occurred on Wednesday morning, June 8, after an illness of only five days, with pneumonia, came as a great shock to his relatives and many friends throughout his home district, where he was exceptionally well known and held in very high esteem.  He was the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Price, Selby, and was born at Mountain Grove, nearly forty-six years ago, where he resided until a young man, when he enlisted in the Great War, and went Overseas.  He served three years and was in England when the Armistice was signed, having been wounded a few months before.

On January 1st, 1919, he returned to his home in Canada, and in 1922 married Miss Cora Hudgins, youngest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. M. P. Hudgins, and purchased the farm where he lived until his death.  To them was born one daughter, Marjorie, now fifteen years of age, and attending Deseronto High School.

The late Mr. Price was very congenial in his disposition, and made many friends.  He was a faithful member and regular attendant of Empey Hill United Church, and took an active interest in every good work pertaining to church and community.

Surviving to mourn his loss, besides his widow, daughter and parents, are two brothers, George and Everett of Selby, and five sisters, Mrs. Ferg Card, Leslieville, Alberta;  Mrs. Leslie Warren, Mallorytown;  Mrs. Melvin Pulver, Rednersville;  Mrs. Percy Hudgins and Mrs. Chas. Pringle, Selby.

The funeral service was held at  - p.m. on Friday at Empey Hill church, which was far too small to accommodate the large crowd that gathered to honour one who was highly respected by all.  A comforting and helpful message was delivered by his pastor, Dr. W. E. L. Smith and appropriate music was rendered by the choir.

The pall bearers were the immediate neighbours and the young men of the community carried the flowers.  Interment was made in Riverview Cemetery, Napanee.

OBITUARY - MR. R. B. PRICE -

The subject of this sketch was born on June 8th 1875 and passed to rest on February 23rd 1924 in his 49th year.  His great grandfather, John Price, served in the British Army in the American Revolution, and for his services was given U.E.L. Grants to property in Addington County, and about the year 1800 he settled on Lot 12 Con. 4 of Camden Township.  This farm has since remained in the Price Family, the deceased being the fourth generation that spent his life and died there.  The four generations were  prominent active members of the Wesley Methodist church. 

On January 23rd, 1901, Mr. R B. Price married Miss Lillie Baker of Camden and their home was one of happiness, where their friends loved to visit and every Methodist minister found a royal welcome around the family board.  He has for years held a prominent place on the Quarterly Official Board, Trustee Board, and has, with more than ordinary success, superintended the Wesley Sunday School for about ten years.  Possessed of a good tenor voice he was often asked and was always ready to contribute to the programme of religious or social gatherings.  He was a man of good judgment, kind hearted, sympathetic towards every need, giving good wholesome counsel to the youth of his Sunday School, interested in every form of church and social activity, a worthy and honored citizen, loyal to his Pastor, his church and especially to his Sunday School for which he thought and worked and prayed, a loving husband and a kind father.  His passing leaves a place not easily filled.

Though he did his work as usual his health had not been the best for some time.  On January 16th last, he suddenly became ill, and the same day was taken to Kingston Hospital, where he underwent a successful operation for appendicitis. He quickly recovered and returned home on January 28th and was doing so well that it was thought his health would be better than before.  But on the morning of February 23rd, he was in fine spirits, and at breakfast he was suddenly seized with pains caused by adhesions, and in spite of care and medical skill he passed away in the evening of the same day.

The funeral services were conducted by his Pastor Rev. Geo. Nickle, on Tuesday, February 26th in the Newburgh Methodist Church, where the large attendance testified to the esteem in which he was held.  The text used was 11 Tim 4: 6-8  The body was placed in the vault, to be later interred in the Camden Fifth cemetery.

Deceased leaves a sorrowing wife, two sons, Clarence B. and Russell Valleau, and one daughter, Pearl, also five brothers, Albert of California;  Frank D.D.S. of Toronto;  Norman M.D., Eye, Ear and Throat Specialist of Niagara Falls, N.Y., Weston, D.D.S., of Cleveland, and Rev. Wilbur of Winnipeg;  and two sisters, Mrs. Nettie Dulmage, of Cleveland and Mrs. Mae Coburn, of Michigan, U.S.

 

Word reached Napanee on Sunday of the death of Mr. Reginald Price of Wesley.  Mr. Price was operated on for appendicitis a short time ago and was making splendid progress, when a relapse set in.  Mr. Price was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Price of Wesley, and was one of a large family who in early life identified himself to the church and who throughout his lifetime was a great worker in the cause of Christianity.  He was a man of sterling character and his word was as good as his bond.  His loss will be keenly felt in his home church at Wesley, also the County School Association of which he was an ardent worker. In early life he married a Miss Baker, who survives him, also one son and one daughter.  His many friends will learn with sincere regret his passing and the sympathy of the whole community goes out to the bereaved family.  Miss Blanche Hawley, town, is a niece of the deceased.

Peacefully Entered Into Rest.

Death touched the frame of Mrs. Ezra D. Priest, mother of Mrs. (Rev.) William Bryers, on Monday evening and she peacefully fell asleep. She had attained the ripe old age of 88 years. Mrs. Priest was born at Earnesttown, near Bath, in 1810, and lived with her parents there until her marriage. After her husband's death some sixteen years ago, she went to live in Napanee, where she remained until five years ago. The past five years she has spent with her daughter, Mrs. Bryers, in Acton. Owing to failing physical and mental vigor the past year or so she was confined to the house, and latterly has been a great care. her daughter and other members of the family ministered to all her wants with loving attention and everything was done to smooth the path of the old lady in her declining years. Her father's house and her own home always extended a hearty welcome to the pioneer ministers, and Mrs. Priest always enjoyed the services of the house of God as long as her health permitted her attendance. A private funeral service was conducted at the house on Tuesday evening by Rev. J. A. McLachlan, M.A., assisted by the Rev. H.A. Macpherson, and the remains were accompanied to Napanee yesterday morning by Mrs. Bryers and her brother, Mr. Priest, of Toronto, for interment.

ENTERED INTO REST -

On May 24th, 1929, the white winged messenger of death entered the home of Mr. Robert Pringle, at West Plain, and bore to the Paradise of God the soul of Mrs. Elizabeth Pringle, widow of the late James Riley Pringle, in her 74th years.

The deceased had not been well for a few weeks, having been subject to several attacks of acute indigestion.  From these she seemed to rally, and was apparently much better and able to be up.  On the day of her demise she had dinner and supper with the family, but she suffered a severe attack, lasting but a few minutes, later in the evening, from which she never rallied.  Her end was clear and triumphant.

Of a retiring disposition she bore the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit which is in the sight of God of great price.  She lived a beautiful, even life patiently, perseveringly, pressing toward the mark of her high calling in Christ Jesus.  Her home was always open to the ministers of the Gospel, and of her hospitality many have partaken from time to time.

The high esteem in which she was held in the neighborhood where she had spent all her days, was very manifest by the large attendance at her funeral, which was held in the United Church, by Rev. P. C. Bennett, assisted by Rev. A. E. Oliver, Pastor of the church. The service was very impressive throughout.  The text used on the occasion is found in matt. 24:44.  Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Brooks sang very touchingly “There Will Be No Shadows on the Other Side”, one of the favorites of the departed.  Interment was made in the family plot at West Plain.

Mrs. Pringle was married in 1874, and there are left to mourn the loss of a true mother, seven daughters, three sons and two step-daughters, namely Mrs. Chas. Caughill, Niagara-on-the-Lake;  Mrs. Milton Hughes, Mrs. Ezra Dafoe, Mrs. Reggis Asselstine, Roblin;  Mrs. G. W. Beaupit, Mrs. J. Saddler, Niagara;  Mrs. F. Thompson, Chaumont, N.Y.;  Wesley, William E., Robert, Roblin, and Mrs. Frances Fralick, Roblin;  Mrs. Adam Scott, Sharps Corners;  also one brother, Mrs Joseph Sedore, Napanee.  Her husband, one daughter, Mrs. Oscar Yates;  a step-daughter, Mrs. T. French and a step-son, Stephen, predeceased her.

The pall-bearers were John Belton, Jefferson Davis, Hazard Young, Robert Young, James Richmond and W. J. Tyner.

The family and relatives have the sympathy of the community in their sad bereavement.

Esther O.

 

Young Woman Drowned - The Napanee Standard says: "On Sunday, the 2nd instant, an accident occurred on the Hay Bay, near the Town Hall, South Fredericksburgh, by which a young woman named Ester O. Pringle was drowned. It appears that the young woman in company with two boys, aged seven and fourteen years respectively, were strolling along the shore and came upon a boat, which they launched and got into for a sail. The only means they had for propelling the boat was a piece of rail, and with this they got out some distance before they discovered the boat was leaking badly. They started to return to the shore with all possible haste, but it soon became evident that before they could reach land the boat would be full of water. When they reached the weeds, the deceased thought the water was shallow and that she could wade to shore, and jumped out into about ten feet of water, and was followed by the youngest boy. The other boy, seeing their danger, also jumped out to endeavour to save them. He gave the boy the piece of rail, but could do nothing for the unfortunate girl, and clung to the boat to save himself. Two men swam out from the shore and rescued the youngest boy, and another came from an island near by and picked up the other boy and the body of the young woman. It required great exertions to bring the youngest boy to consciousness, and the girl was beyond the hope of recovery. The deceased was the youngest daughter of Joseph Pringle, of Hungerford.

Pruyn,

Elizabeth R.

(nee Dorland)

 

Mrs. O.T. Pruyn. Elizabeth R. Dorland, relict of the late Sherriff Oliver Thatford Pruyn, died on Sunday morning at the residence of her son, Thomas Dorland Pruyn, ex-Mayor of Napanee, at the advanced age of 82 years. She was a native of Adolphustown, and she lived in this county all her life and was well known to many of the old readers of the Beaver. Her grandfather, John Dorland, was one of the pioneer settlers of Adolphustown. He was a prominent Quaker and it was on his farm in the third concession of Adolphustown, on the shores of Hay Bay, that the first Quaker meeting house in Upper Canada was built and the first burying ground of that society was established. Her father, Thos. I. Dorland, was also a well know and prominent Quaker, and inherited the family homestead, where he lived and died in 1869. He married Betsey Trumpour also an early native of the same township. They had six children of whom Deborah, the subject of these notes was the youngest child. She married Oliver Thatford Pruyn, then a young farmer residing on the front of South Fredericksburgh, just west of the boundary line of Ernesttown, where all their married days were spent. Mr. Pruyn was a prominent and much respected man and was appointed Sheriff of this county at the time of its separation, a position which he held until the time of his death, a little over six years ago. He was much attached to his farm, however, and never left it to take personal charge of the Sheriff's office, which was first filled by his brother, the late Matthew W. Pruyn, and later on by his only son, Thomas Dorland Pruyn. Sheriff Hawley succeeded to the office at the time of Mr. Pruyn's death. Since her husband's death the deceased has lived with her son at Napanee. He is just now absent at Victoria British Columbia - too far away to reach home for her funeral, which took place on Tuesday forenoon. Like her husband, she was a member of the Church of England, and they now have their last resting place, side by side, in St. Paul's church yard at Sandhurst - a church of which they were regular attendants for many years. She enjoyed fairly good health until a few months ago, when she slipped and fell on the icy ground near her own door and fractured the bone of her thigh. She so far recovered from that accident as to be able to walk about some again. As the result of that accident, and of her last sickness, she suffered a good deal of pain, and no doubt, it was a relief to be at last at rest - a happy change to enjoy that rest which remaineth to the people of God.

 

Died at Napanee - Mrs. Pruyn Passes Away

Napanee, June 25 - Mrs. O.T. Pruyn, mother of T.D. Pruyn, passed away on Saturday night at the advanced age of eighty two years. She was the youngest daughter of the late Thomas D. Dorland, one of the oldest settlers in the bay district, and was one of a large family, all of whom have now passed away. The funeral will take place today, the interment in the family plot at Sandhurst.

Pruyn,

Matthew William

 

Obituary - Matthew William Pruyn - An old and respected resident of Napanee, passed over to the great majority on Thursday morning, 10th instant, after a brief and painless illness. He was at his place of business until closing time Saturday afternoon in apparently his usual good health. On rising about 6 o'clock Sunday morning he remarked that he did not know when he had enjoyed such a good night's rest. Almost immediately afterwards he fell to the floor unconscious, and never rallied, passing peacefully away yesterday morning.

He was born on the shores of Bay of Quinte, on the first lot in the Township of Fredericksburgh, October 22d 1819, the youngest son of William Pruyn of that place, one of the pioneer U.E. Loyalist settlers of this county. He spent his early days on his father's farm, where he received his education in the schools of the locality. When a young man he went west and was always in mercantile life. From 1836 to 1840 he lived in Woodstock. He then moved to Brantford, then a small town, and spent the next 22 years there. He became a large and successful merchant there and one of the leading citizens. For years he was a member of the Brantford council and served for one term as its Mayor. While there he married Miss Mary Margaret Kerby, Dec. 13th, 1843, a daughter of the late William Kerby, Esq., for years one of the most prominent residents of that place. Mrs. Pruyn, with their two sons, John R., of Chicago, and William K., of Napanee, survive him. The latter gentleman has been for many years associated with his father in business here.

Meeting with some business reverses at Brantford, Mr. Pruyn went west to the Pacific coast in 1862 and was for a time a resident of British Columbia. In 1864, when the County of Lennox and Addington was set apart from Frontenac, Mr. Pruyn was invited to return to his native county and accept the situation of Deputy Sheriff, which office he filled for seven years. He has been a resident of Napanee ever since. Soon after settling here he established a large grocery and liquor store, in connection with his sons, and has been in business here ever since.

In politics Mr. Pruyn was a Conservative and an ardent supporter and personal friend of the late Sir John Macdonald. When Sir John was elected in Lennox in 1882, Mr. Pruyn was one of his warm supporters. When that election was declared void, a year or two later, and Sir John retained his seat for Carleton County, Mr. Pruyn was the nominee of the Conservative party as his successor; a very hardly contested election was held  and he was defeated by David W. Allison, Esq., by only four votes. That election was, in its turn, protested and made void and Mr. Pruyn was again the conservative candidate defeating Mr. Allison by a majority of 58. He then represented the county until the election in 1887 when Mr. Uriah Wilson received the party nomination. Those were stirring times in the political history of this County. During the four sessions of the Fifth Parliament we had three elections and two protests and three separate representatives in the House: - Sir John in the session of 1883;  Mr. Allison in the session of 1884; and Mr. Pruyn during the sessions of 1885 and '86.

Mr. Pruyn was a life-long member of the Church of England and one of its regular communicants. In his death the community has lost a respected and enterprising citizen, the church a faithful member and the sons a kindly father and his aged wife an affectionate and much loved companion. The funeral will take place tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock.

 

M.W. Pruyn attacked by paralysis on Sunday died this morning.

M.W. Pruyn was a native of South Fredericksburgh, Lennox county. He was born there on the 22nd of October, 1819. His father, William Pruyn was among the early U.E.L. settlers on the shores of Bay of Quinte two or three miles west of the village of Bath. According to the records in the old Upper Canada crown lands department he does not appear to have come to this province until about 1808 or twenty-six years later than the U.E.L. settlers. He was a man of considerable means and much business energy and was among the first of the extensive lumbermen on the Bay of Quinte. He is said to have built the first saw mill on the Salmon river, near where the village of Shannonville now stands. That for years, became an active business locality both for saw and grist mills. The Pruyns were a well-to-do family residing at Kinderbrook, on the Hudson river, province of New York, years before the American revolution. Harmen, grandfather of the late M.W., appears to have been a wealthy resident in that locality as early as 1750. During the revolution he took sides with the British, and he was afterwards reported "banished" from his native land and considerable of his property was confiscated for that offence - as were a great many others in those days who remained loyal to the British flag. He also came to Upper Canada, where some of his relatives and friends had preceded him. He afterwards lived and died in this province.

The Pruyns were among the families who brought slaves with the, which they retained for many years. The Pruyn family were connected by inter-marriage with a number of the then well known pioneer families about the Bay of Quinte, including the Fairfields, Finkles, Churches, Dorlands and others.

When the subject of this sketch was a young man he went west and entered the mercantile business, which he followed all his remaining days. He was first at Woodstock, then a small village, then he located at Brantford, then but a thriving town. There he remained for years and was at one time the mayor of Brantford and one of the leading business men. He there married Miss Mary M. Kerby, daughter of the late William Kerby, one of the founders of what is now the city of Brantford. She survives him, though now quite feeble, being seventy-six years of age. Their two sons, John Rose, of Chicago, and William Kerby, of Napanee, are also living.

When Lennox and Addington was separated from Frontenac as a separate county, in 1831, the late Oliver Hatford Pruyn was appointed sheriff, and on his invitation his brother, Matthew William, moved to Napanee and became deputy sheriff, a position which he held for seven or eight years. In the general dominion election of 1882 Sir John Macdonald left Kingston and became the Conservative candidate for Lennox, where he was declared elected by a small majority over David W. Allison, Adolphustown, the liberal nominee. The late Mr. Pruyn was an ardent supporter and personal friend of Sir John. The election was protested and Sir John was unseated, after he had represented the county for one session. At the bye-election that ensued, Mr. Pruyn was the nominee of the conservative party, and was defeated by a narrow majority of eight by Mr. Allison, who represented the county at the next session. His election was in turn protested and voided, and at the ensuring election Mr. Pruyn was declared returned by a majority of eighty-five, and he represented the county during the next two sessions. Thus during our fifth dominion parliament Lennox had three elections, two protests and was represented by three men. During the same time there were two elections and two protests in connection with the provincial legislature. The county never before or since witnessed so much political excitement and commotion as between 1882 and 1886. At the next general election Uriah Wilson, the present M.P. for the county, received the conservative nomination over Mr. Pruyn, who then retired and he has never been a candidate for political honors since.

Mr. Pruyn was a staunch member of the Church of England and a regular communicant for many years. He was an enterprising citizen, a kindly neighbor and a man of intelligence and good business habits.  T.W.C.

Purtelle,

James

 

The Late James Purtelle -

There passed away in Bloomfield on March 8th, 1925, James Purtelle, in his 81st year.  Mr. Purtelle had been in ill health for only a few weeks, but was finally prostrated one week ago from a serious malady that caused unceasing suffering until death released him on Sunday morning last.  James Purtelle was born in Glengarry county, of Irish parentage.  This family comprised several children, the one who lived in close touch with our community life, was James Purtelle.  He might have lived an absolutely obscure life, but circumstances and unseen destiny decreed otherwise,  He was converted to Methodism when a young man; and his whole life has been an expression of a highly religious nature with marked mental ability, and a profound consciousness of his duty to his God and to his fellow man.  His sympathy was tender and far-reaching.  His devotion to his church, and every good cause, is so well known that it seems idle to narrate, since his life and character are indisputable evidence of a great soul, that from boyhood to old age was identified with everything that was uplifting in the social, religious and community life around us. James Purtelle was a minister of the Gospel in the truest sense; if not called to ordination by the Church, he was truly called of God, and his religious utterances were frequently heard in years past, especially in the Hallowell district.  He was also an efficient class teacher, and many there are who recall his Christian profession, as one interested in the spiritual welfare of his fellows.  In this service he remained active until quite recently, when ill health bound him closer to the home life.  He married in early life Mrs. Elizabeth Gilbert Leavens, and there was born to this union, one son and one daughter - Edward B. Purtelle, who resides in Bloomfield and (Emma) Mrs. Andrew Van de Water, Picton.  His second marriage was with Mrs. Nancy Rose Steinberg;  with whom he lived most happily for three years and more.  His brother, Thomas Purtelle, a highly respected member of the family, predeceased his brother three years ago and his brother Edward, Oshawa, is the only surviving member of that family and was present at the funeral.  The funeral on Tuesday, March 10th, was largely attended.  Rev. J. J. Mellor, pastor of Picton United Church of Canada, officiated with great acceptance.  Mr. Mellor spoke of his farewell visit to Mr. Purtelle, of his strong belief that he was “about to enter upon a new and wonderful life with his eternal God.”  His faith, love and trust were so intensely real, that his countenance shone with the light from the other world - where, as he said “In my Father’s house are many mansions - if it were not so, I would have told you.”  Miss Bull sang “Lead Kindly Light.”  The floral tributes were as follows:  Mr. and Mrs. Ted Van de Water, a spray;  Methodist Bible Class, a wreath;  from the family, a pillow;  Mr. and Mrs. B. Wilson, a spray;  R. J. Purtelle, a wreath;  Mr. and Mrs. Earl Purtelle, a spray;  Mr. and Mrs. George Mitford, a wreath;  Mount Pleasant Church, a spray;  Hallowell Canning Factory, a wreath;  Bristol’s staff, floral basket.  Sympathy is expressed for the bereaved widow, and the family, who fell most keenly their loss.  The Bearers were: William Gough, Peter Cave, Edwin Baxter, Clarence Mallory, Clayton Burr and Hubert McDonald.  The interment was made in Glenwood cemetery.

Purvis,

Lina S.

(nee Aylesworth)

 

OBITUARY – In the full assurance of hope and in the glorious triumph of Christian faith, Mrs. Lina S. Purvis passed peacefully away to her reward on Sunday afternoon, April 20th, in the 60th year of her age.  She was the eldest daughter of William Aylesworth, of Bath, Ont.  In 1882, she was married to Mr. P.C. Purvis, of Lyn, Ont., where they resided until 10 years ago, when they moved to Bath, where they have resided ever since.  One brother, Liester A. Aylesworth, of Bath, and one sister, Mrs. John B. White, of Hayburn, still survive her.  She leaves to mourn her loss besides a grief-stricken husband, four daughters and one son.  Mrs. Judson, Cowansville;  Mrs. C.C. Nash, Kingston;  Mrs John Williams, New York;  Miss Clara, at home, and Mr. Stanley, of Edmonton.  Mrs. Purvis was a loyal and life long member of the Methodist church, which she loved devotedly, and in the activities of which in the spread of the Master’s kingdom, she was ever glad to spend and be spent.  She was for many years a member of the W.M.S. and for several years preceding her last illness, she was President of the Bath Auxiliary.  The funeral services were conducted at the family residence, one mile east of Bath, the birthplace of the deceased, by the pastor, Rev. J. F. Everson, assisted by a former pastor, Rev. J. Webster, Brock Street, Kingston.  The text was a very appropriate and fitting one.  “Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die it abideth alone, but if it die it bringeth forth much fruit.:  The morning being very fine the friends gathered in large numbers to pay their last tribute of respect to one they loved so dearly.  The display of flowers and wreaths were sufficient to show the very high esteem in which our sister was held.  Among which there was a wreath from Bath W.M.S. Auxiliary, many members being present.  As the body was moved from the house they followed it singing :”There’s a land that is fairer than day, And by faith we can see it afar,  For the Father waits over the way,  To Prepare us a dwelling place there.”  Interment took place at Lyn, Township of Young, County of Leeds. The many friends and neighbors extend their sympathies to the bereaved and sorrowing husband in the declining hours of his life.

OBITUARY – On Saturday, March 22d 1913, there passed away at Bath, William Roy Purvis, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. P.C. Purvis after an illness lasting about three years, which took a more acute form about six weeks ago, being brought on by an attack of la grippe, from which he never rallied.   During the last few weeks he suffered severely but he bore his pain very cheerfully.  He was born in the County of Leeds, Township of Lyn, Ontario, May 22d, 1891 and was brought up in a Christian home.  With his parents, he moved to Bath in March, 1903, where he lived until the time of his death.  Soon after coming to Bath he received the new birth, and afterwards connected himself with the Bath Methodist Church, where he rendered active service for God until death called him home.  His name was most frequently associated with his appearance, at church, Sabbath School or class meeting.  During his prolonged illness he was somewhat deprived of these privileges, which deprivation he felt quite keenly.  Throughout his sickness, and during the critical moments he was entirely resigned to the Will of God.  Written upon his face was the evidence that he was looking forward to the time when he would see his Saviour face to face.  All who knew him can testify of his zealous Christian character, unselfish in every way.  The interment took place at Young’s Mills, Lyn, on Easter Monday, March 24th.  The service was conducted at the house by Rev. J. F. Everson, his pastor, who, in a very few but appropriate remarks, expressed the feeling and sentiment of the many who had gathered there to pay their last tribute of ** He leaves to mourn his loss, his father and mother, one brother, Stanley in Edmonton, and four sisters, Mrs. Dr. Nash, Kingston, Mrs. Judson, Cowansville;  Mrs. Williams, New York, and Miss Clara, at home

Travelling With a Corpse

On Thursday evening the four sons of the late Peter Quackenbush, of Denbigh, who died on the 17th of October last, arrived in Napanee with the remains of their father, and deposited them in the churchyard at Sand Hill, North Fredericksburgh. They were four days upon the road, travelling with a sleigh until they reached Roblin where they were obliged to borrow a waggon to complete their journey. The young men performed the tedious and wearisome pilgrimage to fulfil the wish of their deceased parent, who expressed a desire to be buried near the scenes of his boyhood. Before returning, the young men ordered a neat monument to mark the last resting place of their father. Such final regard for the memory of a departed parent, adds the Beaver, speaks volumes for the true manhood of those devoted sons.
