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

Murder in Hungerford – We learn from the Picton Sun that Cyrenus Parks of Hungerford, was murdered in that township on Saturday, the 5th inst., at 2 p.m. by Alexander West. Parks had quarreled with a man of the name of Wright and blows were exchanged. Wright afterwards induced James and Alexander West to join him in pursuit of Parks, with whom he designed to renew the quarrel. They met and West challenged Parks to fight, which the latter declined. West then struck Parks and in falling, his head came in contact with a sleigh and is supposed to have fractured his skull. West followed the blow with others and about ten minutes after the fracas ended, Parks is dead. West immediately fled. Nearly one hundred persons were present, but allowed him to escape without attempting to prevent him. West is about five feet ten inches high, stout built, red face, light hair and no whiskers. Had on when he left a California hat, grey pantaloons and blue frock or smock. He is supposed to have gone the road to Kingston by the back route from Hungerford. An inquest has been held and from evidence received a verdict of “Death caused by blows inflicted upon the head and neck of deceased by Alex West,” was rendered.

Casey's troop during the rebellion of 1837-38. Deceased married Miss Mary Ann Jackson, who accompanied him to California, and died there three years ago.

 

Death is the wind up of all things. It is my sad duty to close this letter with recording the death of Jason Parks, late of North Fredericksburgh. He has lived for the past four years at Berkely, California, with his grandson, Herbert C. Parks, at whose home he passed peacefully away a few weeks ago. He was a son of Captain Parks, one of the U.E. Loyalists that landed at Adolphustown. Deceased was a member of Capt. Casey's troop during the rebellion of '37-'38. Irvine Parks, a son of the above, has the discharge of his grandfather, Captain N. Parks, from Her Majesty's Provincial Regiment of King's Rangers, dated 1783, he being at that time but 14 years of age. The discharge also states that he is entitled to his portion of land allotted to him.

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.

In 1903 he married Miss Ada Trigg who predeceased him in 1912, and in 1917 he married Miss Sarah Stinson, who predeceased him in 1923.  He was a life-long Conservative in politics, and a devoted member of Christ Church here, where he served as sexton for over twenty-five years and as long as his health permitted he took a great interest in all branches of church work, including the choir, of which he was a member for thirty years.  He served the township of Sheffield as treasurer for twenty years, and was clerk of the township for eight years.  He belonged to the following fraternal societies; Orange Lodge No. 159, Canadian Order of Oddfellows and the Masonic Order, under whose service he was buried.

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.

On Tuesday, Feb. 20th, Milo Parks, the oldest resident of Hay Bay, died at the ripe age of eighty-seven years, four months and seventeen days. Deceased was of U.E. Loyalist descent and son of the late Capt. C. Parks, who came to this country in those troublous times and settled in the Hay Bay district.

Deceased leaves, besides an aged widow, four sons, A.C. Parks on the homestead; Charles B. and John F. on farms close by and James C. in Kansas City. Deceased was a man of exemplary habits, a kind and thoughtful neighbor, whose deeds of love will live for many a day in the hearts of his neighbors.

The funeral will take place today at one o’clock, to the Hay Bay Church, thence to the Napanee Cemetery vault.

 

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.

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

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 one 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.

A few days ago, a two year old child of Wm. Perry, Napanee was fatally poisoned by drinking a solution of saltpetre.  The mother had a strong solution of saltpetre for use on the throat of a younger child afflicted with quinsy, and the older child wanting a drink, the mother, by mistake, gave it a drink out of the cup containing the saltpetre.  She discovered the mistake, but felt no great alarm until the child began to turn purple.  A doctor was at once brought, who administered an antidote, but it was too late to save the child’s life.

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.

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.

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.

There passed to her rest at Gretna on March 15th, one of the neighborhood's finest christian characters, in the person of Mrs. Geo. Perry.

Mrs. Perry had been suffering for some time with pernicious anaemia, and the grippe took hold of her and in her weakened condition could not throw it off. However, her last illness was a lesson to all who beheld her patience and faith in God. She never murmured or complained, but was ready to accept God's mandate and obey the summons when it came.

Mrs. Perry was born in 1861 at Hay Bay, her maiden name being Mary Catherine Quackenbush and she was the last surviving member of that family. She received her early education at Hay Bay, and in early life took God as her guide. She was married to Mr. Geo. Perry on Jan. 27th, 1885 by the Rev. Mr. Bates, of Napanee, and their union was blessed with two children, Alma, at home, and Mrs. Edward Hambly, Gosport. These, with the sorrowing husband, have the sympathy of the entire community.

The late Mr. Perry was born in the Hay Bay district and was a son of the late Bowen and Edith Perry. He was educated at the Napanee Collegiate and spent some time later at Queen's University, but did not complete his course. For about six years after leaving Queens, he worked in Sudbury, where he met and married his wife, the former Violet O'Reilly.

In 1925, Mr. Perry and his family returned to Napanee, where Mr. Perry started a coal and fuel business in which he had been very successful. For some years he also was a rural mail courier on Route 1, out of Napanee. On the opening of the selective service office in Napanee, in September, 1942, Mr. Perry was appointed the first manager, which position he capably filled until ill-health forced him to seek leave of absence in July of last year.

He is survived by his wife, one daughter, Miss Edith, and seven sons; Byron, Jule, Bernard, Jack, Douglas and Morley Jr. all of Napanee and L.A.C. Vernon Perry with the R.C.A.F. in Calgary. He also leaves one brother, Ray F. Perry, Morven and one sister, Mrs. Sperry Fraser, of Morven.

His funeral is being conducted at St. Patrick's Church, tomorrow (Thursday) at 8:30 a.m. and burial will be in St. Patrick's Cemetery.

The pall-bearers will be Messrs. Harold Denison, J.W. Wilson, Ernest Marshall, James McGuire, Angus MacDonnell and Jeff Bradshaw.

Perry,

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)

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.

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.
