OBITUARY - The death of Miss Florence Randell, of Hay Bay, cast a gloom over the entire community.  She was the only surviving child of Mrs. Phoebe Randell, who has previously laid to rest her husband and two children.  The bereaved mother has the heartfelt sympathy of a large number of friends in this her sad loss.    Miss Florence was a bright, cheerful winsome girl.   She passed her Normal Entrance exams in three years at the Collegiate, being under age when she secured it.  She taught a school on the High Shore in Prince Edward County, just across the Bay from her home, at Gosport, but on account of ill health gave it up about a year ago.  She had high hopes of returning after a few weeks’ rest, but this was not b be.  A short time before her death she expressed the hope of being able to take a school after Christmas.  She was around as usual on Wednesday morning, but on Thursday Dr. Vrooman was called, and when he said she had bronchial pneumonia, she told her mother it was the beginning of the end, as she was too weak to throw if off.  She passed away on Friday morning, Oct. 16th, at 8:30 o’clock.  Her popularity in her school is shown by the number of her pupils who came over to attend her funeral.  She was a favorite with both young and old.  She was a member of the church and ready to help in any way she could in church work.  In spiritual matters, she was an earnest searcher for the truth and had a deep ongoing to know the full meaning of the Gospel of Jesus, and to have an intelligent experience of salvation.  The many verses marked in her bible showed she read it well and loved its truths.  She fully trusted in Jesus as her Saviour.  The funeral service was conducted by her Pastor in Hay Bay church on Sunday, Oct. 18th at 1 p.m.  His text was John 3:16.  A large number were present .  A number of beautiful floral wreaths were laid on the coffin in token of love and sympathy, and the Mission Circle, of which she was a member stood in line at the church door and each dropped a white carnation on the coffin.  All that was mortal was placed in the vault at Napanee to be later interred in Riverside cemetery in certain hope of the resurrection.

Died - At Adolphustown, on Monday the 6th inst. after a short but severe illness which she bore with christian fortitude and patience, Caroline, wife of Mr. Orrin Ranney, aged 49 years. her piety was without ostentation, and her zeal for the promotion of religion was manifested on all proper occasions. There are many who survive her that cannot soon or easily forget her earnest solicitations to accompany her to the house and worship of God, and her marked attention and devotion while there could not fail to convince them that she was sincere. It may be truly said of her that she died as she lived, in the fear and love of God and in the faith of his blessed Son Jesus Christ, - and her last closing scene of life, her final struggle with the king of terrors was well calculated to excite in the breast of every person then surrounding her couch something like the following beautiful and scriptural wish, "Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his." She has left eight children with her consort to deplore her loss.

(nee Love)

 

ANN JANE LOVE - At her home at Reidville, Ann Jane Love, relict of the late Robt. Jas. Reid, entered with sweet anticipation into rest Christmas night shortly after midnight, aged 83 years.  Only a few days earlier had she taken to her bed, she had no organic trouble, and the end came rapidly as she slept.  Mrs. Reid was born Sept. 1832, at Kingston, Ont., being the daughter of Michael and Eliza Love, who came out to this Province from Cork, Ireland, and settled in the Limestone city.  Afterwards, the family removed to Camden and Mrs. Reid graduated from the Newburgh Academy and taught school at Tamworth and Reidville, where she married Robt. James Reid in 1859, in Camden East Anglican Church.  The family consisted of 5 sons and 2 daughters, five of whom survive, namely Harper, Albert, Fred, May and Alma.  For over half a century she had lived on her farm, beloved by all who knew her.  In 1908, her husband predeceased her.  He was a man of sterling character.  In August 1913, her beloved son, E. J. Reid, was suddenly drowned in Gambier Bay, Alaska, and probably so great was the shock of the sad news that her former health and strength never returned.  Ann Jane Love was the salt of the earth, an honoured parent, an affectionate mother, with dutiful and worthy children, a loyal church woman, a faithful Christian .  A large cortege attended her funeral at Camden East Church, on Tuesday afternoon, the Rev. Rural Dean Jones, of Tamworth officiating, being assisted by Rev. R. W. Spencer, Rector of Camden East.  The text was “A Good Name” Prov. XXII, I.  Her Christian works will be missed now she is gone.  But the memory of the just is blessed;  and right dear in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.

Fatal Accident -

On Friday afternoon last the dead body of Mr. Jas. Reid, a well known Ernesttown farmer, who lived with his brother, Mr. Geo. Reid, was found lying on the floor of the barn.  Deceased went to the barn about 4 o’clock to do the usual chores and Mrs. Geo. Reid went out later to milk the cows.  After finishing milking, and not seeing anything of Mr. Jas. Reid, she started looking for him and was horrified to find his body lying on the floor of the barn where he had evidently fallen from the hay mow.  Dr. Cameron Wilson, Napanee was called at once and found that the dead man had been killed evidently from a fall, and that his neck was broken.  Dr. Wilson notified the coroner, who after making due inquiry, deemed an inquest unnecessary.  The late Mr. Reid was a bachelor and about 70 years of age.

Rendell,

Alfred E.

 

Mr. Rendell's death, though not unexpected, nevertheless caused a feeling of sorrow throughout the town. Coming from England at the age of two years, and his whole life having been spent in this immediate vicinity, gave ample opportunity for his sterling qualities and true manhood to make themselves known. His parents settled in Ernesttown, where deceased's boyhood days were passed. When ready to chose his calling he selected that of builder and contractor, and served and apprenticeship of seven years with Mr. John N. Hough, Gretna. Most of his work for the twenty-five years he was in active business, was done in the country about town, where he had a very large acquaintance, and by whom he was well liked and much respected. When his health prevented the carrying on of this business he moved to town and took up life insurance, and proved a very successful agent. In 1882 he was married to Miss Phoebe A. Hawley, daughter of the late Samuel Hawley of Gosport. She survives him, together with an eight-year old daughter. A son was also born to them, but died in infancy. Deceased was a man of exceptionally rugged constitution, and being very ambitious, was went to give too little attention to proper protection against the weather. As a result he contracted a heavy cold, which was followed by others, and thus the seeds of consumption were sown. Early in life deceased embraced the Methodist faith, and on coming to town to reside, connected himself with the Eastern Methodist church of which he was a faithful member. His long illness was borne with true Christian fortitude; he seemed possessed of patience beyond limit, and no words of complaint were ever heard from his lips. Truly a good man has gone to his reward. The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, from his late residence, John street, thence to Napanee cemetery vault.

Relict of the late John Rennie, passed peacefully away on Saturday morning last, at her residence, Bridge St., Napanee, after an illness of two years, during portions of which she was an intense sufferer. Deceased was a native of Stirlingshire, Scotland, and was united in marriage to Mr. Rennie in 1847, sailing the same year for Canada. On their arrival they settled at Camden East, where his uncle, Mr. 'Jock' Rennie was in business. In 1857, Mr. Rennie purchased a farm at Hay Bay, where they reared a family of eight children, Mr. Rennie dying in Aug. 1871. To his widow befell the task of bringing up the young family, and managing the farm, and how well she accomplished it her children and neighbors can testify. Her whole life was given up unselfishly to her family. Seven years ago she removed to Napanee with her daughter Agnes. During her lifetime deceased was a faithful member of the Presbyterian church and died in the full hope of a blessed resurrection. The members of the family who are left to mourn are, James, at Sandhurst, John, Hay Bay; Robert, Deseronto Road; Alex., Will. and Thomas Manitoba; Mrs. Jas Russell, Manitoba, and Miss Agnes, at home.

MRS. JAMES RENNIE - Another soul of beneficent memory among us has "crossed the bar”. As the beauty-glow of sunset closes the Autumn day all too soon, so was closed this life, brief but beautiful. The announcement of the death of Mrs. James Rennie starts the teardrops of a host of friends, and many a heart throbs in sympathy for the bereaved. If any we know, who was worthy of the tribute, "Many daughters have done virtuously but thou excellest them all" ; it was she. The late Mrs. Rennie was born at Sillsville and spent her life in that neighbourhood, a benediction to all who knew her. The loss of this devoted worker to the Sandhurst Presbyterian church (of which she was a member) is inestimable. After a painful illness bravely borne, she was relieved by death on the second day of this month, while she yet lacked five of three score years. She leaves a husband and daughter, Mrs. James Robinson, and countless friends to mourn her loss. As her remains repose in the little graveyard on the hill at Sillsville, many who were by her befriended, will bless her memory.

Richardson,

James

 

James Richardson died, last night, at his residence on Stuart street.

The late James Richardson was born in county Tyrone, Ireland, in the year 1819. His father came to Canada when James was three years old and settled in Adolphustown, where he died four years afterwards, leaving his son an orphan, his mother having died soon after his birth.

Mr. Richardson has been a resident of Kingston since he was ten years old. He first entered the employment of the late Mr. Dawson and subsequently established himself in business independently. He engaged in various commercial enterprises in which he was remarkably successful and accumulated considerable property. he finally concentrated his business in the grain trade. He was the first man who exported grain from Kingston, and for more than thirty years he has successfully carried on that business and has been the leading grain merchant in central Ontario. During that period he has enjoyed the confidence and esteem of the business and farming community by the integrity and uprightness which have characterized his dealings.

He was always loyal to Kingston, and its interests. No citizen has been more prominently identified with the growth of the city, and the development of its business enterprises. When the present custom house was in process of erection the contractor was unable to complete his work, and Mr. Richardson, who was the contractor's surety, carried out the contract giving it his personal supervision for two years and sustaining a loss in connection with 4% of several thousand dollars.

Among the enterprises which he has financially promoted are the Kingston & Pembroke railway, the cotton mill, the knitting mill and the locomotive works.

He has also been one of the most liberal benefactors of Queen's university. Mr. Richardson was a life-long conservative and voted for the late Sir John A. Macdonald at his first election in the city of Kingston and was his faithful adherent throughout his political career, whilst never obtrusive in the expression of his political opinions.

It is well known to many members of the conservative party that it was Sir John Macdonald's wish on more than one occasion that Mr. Richardson should stand as the conservative candidate for Kingston.

Until five weeks ago he retained to all appearance the full mental and physical vigor of manhood. Although over seventy years of age there was little in his appearance to suggest the old man. He was then suddenly taken ill at his office and the vitality, which had hitherto seemed unabated, was suddenly attacked, and it was evident that a serious collapse had taken place. Until the last week his friends hoped for his restoration to health, but during the past few days it became apparent that he was sinking, and last evening at nine o'clock he quietly and peacefully passed away.

The late Mr. Richardson was a member of Sydenham street Methodist church congregation and most regular and punctual in his attendance. His pew was occupied every Sunday. He had high regard for the church and was one of the most generous of its supporters. He was always willing to aid in the undertakings of its most aggressive workers. He never held office, but by sympathy and liberality backed up those who were the burden-bearers. He was quiet, devout and faithful.

He was, in early days, one of the scholars in the first Sunday school in this city, conducted by the Methodists in the old Bay street church. He was afterwards a teacher in the same school. He was one of three of the old scholars at the late picnic of the Sydenham street Sabbath school. He was greatly interested in the first building on the present site of his church home, and a very liberal contributor to the remodelled and beautified church of to-day. He regarded the transformation with pride.

Mr. Richardson leaves surviving him his widow, his daughter, Mrs. (Rev.) E.A. Chown, and his two sons, who have been long associated with him in business, and who faithfully maintain the honorable record which their father made. He also leaves two sisters, Mrs. Kerr, of Australia, and Mrs. Allen, Kingston, both several years his senior.

Mrs. R. Richardson - Mrs. R. Richardson, a resident of this community during her entire life, passed away on Saturday, March 18th, 1922, at her late residence, South Napanee. 

Mrs. Richardson had been an invalid for the past eight years, but during her entire illness she was always bright and cheery, and pleased to see all and any of her many friends who visited her.  Although her illness was prolonged, still her loved ones always prayed and looked for her recovery, and it was a great shock for everyone when she was called to her reward.

She was a member of Grace Methodist Church and attended regularly until she was unable to leave her home.  She often spoke of her appreciation of the thoughtfulness and kindness shown her by the members of Grace church, and especially of Rev. A. J. Terrill, who so faithfully and tenderly rendered such words of comfort and cheerfulness since his short pastorate here.

Surviving are her husband, one son, Leslie, of Napanee, and two daughter, Lillian, of Detroit, and Tena, at home.  The family have the sympathy of the community in this their double sorrow, having, two weeks previous, lost a daughter and sister, Vera.

Thomas Nelson Richmond

The death occurred on  Sunday, September 9th, 1928 of Thomas Nelson Richmond, aged 64 years.  Death was due to a nervous breakdown, and the end came after an illness of a few weeks.

Mr. Richmond was a prosperous farmer, having lived on his farm for some twenty-five years, about two miles from Forest Mills.  He was a very fine type of man, noted for his gentle disposition.  He was always ready to lend a helping hand, and his many acts of kindness won for him many warm friends, who sadly regretted his departure.

He married Hattie Brown, sister of Gilbert Brown, of Marlbank, and besides his wife, leaves a niece, Mrs. Walter Scott, who had lived with them until her marriage;  two brothers, James and Daniel Richmond, of Roblin, and two sisters, Mrs. George Brown, of Leinster, and Mrs. Alonzo Dewitt, of Forest Mills.

The funeral took place at Christ Church, Tamworth, where the Rev. Mr. Gregory, Rector of the Anglican Church of Shannonville, preached an impressive and very much appreciated sermon, taking as his text, “Faith, Hope and Charity”.  He was assisted by Rev. Mr. Morgan, of Christ church, Tamworth.  Mr. Wilcox, choir leader of the church, sang an appropriate solo, “He Wipes the Tear From Every Eye.”  Interment was made in the cemetery in request of the deceased, and the most sincere sympathy is extended to the widow and relatives of the deceased.

RIKELEY - Henry Rikeley, son of Andrew Rikeley and Margaret Loyd, was born in Sidney in August 1822 and died in South Fredericksburgh in August, 1903 aged eighty-one years. Our departed brother was soundly converted more than sixty years ago, and during all those years continued faithful to the church, and was ready to every good word and work. He filled the office of class leader and steward for many years. Being gifted in music, his voice was heard at camp and special meetings, leading the service of song, and even in his last moments he sang the praises of God. His was a simple, unostentatious piety, and his ministries to the sick and troubled were a source of great comfort to many afflicted and sorrow-stricken ones. He was married twice. He will be greatly missed at Hayburn, for his seat will be empty. He leaves a wife and one daughter to mourn their loss.

Mr. Jas. Rikley Died As Result of Injuries Sustained In Accident

Mr. James Rikley of Sillsville died in Kingston General Hospital, on Friday afternoon, May 10th, as the result of injuries he sustained on the previous Tuesday when a three-horse team hitched to a disc ran away, dragging him over the field  before they could be stopped.

Mr. Rikley was given first aid treatment at his home and later was taken by ambulance to Kingston General Hospital . He sustained a compound fracture of the left thigh, a very badly broken ankle and severe lacerations on his back.

DEATH OF CANON ROBERTS – Rector of Christ Church, Cataraqui, Passes Away – Another clergyman of the Kingston Diocese has been called by death in the passing away, after a long illness, of Canon the Rev. William Roberts, preceptor of St. George’s Cathedral, rector of Christ Church, Cataraqui, and a minor canon of St. George’s.   The death of Canon Roberts has cast a gloom over the whole diocese, in various parts of which he was an earnest worker since 1868, when he was first ordained a deacon.  He held many charges, and in each his death brings the profoundest regret. As a clergyman, a musician, a scholar and a citizen his presence had a beneficial effect on the community, and he will be sorely missed. Born at Elmesmere, Shropshire, England, seventy-four years ago, the deceased first turned his studies to music.  He became a Doctor of Music, and in time was recognized as one of the most learned musicians.  Only recently six of his hymn tunes were adopted by the Mother Anglican Church for use in England, and this high testimony to his musical worth brought letters from many titled people who were interested in composers.  In 1868 he came to Canada as organist for Hon. John Hamilton, brother of Archbishop Hamilton.  This charge was at Hawkesbury.  In the same year, having been studying for the ministry, he was ordained as a deacon and appointed to Roblin and Tweed.  The next year his ability as a speaker and his advanced studies with more experience brought him the honor of being made a priest. In 1874, he was transferred to Camden East, and then in turn to Shannonville.  In 1877, the late Canon Roberts took over the charge of Amherst Island, and there for fourteen years, leaving in 1891 to go to Merrickville.  He was in Merrickville until November of 1900, going from there to Adolphustown.  In 1904 while at Adolphustown he was made a canon.  In 1915, he was appointed to Christ Church, Cataraqui. A man who was held in great esteem by Canon Roberts was his brother, the late Rev. Charles Roberts, who came to Canada in the pioneer days, and was rector of Bourglouis, near Quebec.  A stained glass east window was recently erected to his memory.  The late Canon Roberts leaves a large family to mourn his loss.  Three sisters, Mrs. Lucas, London, Eng., Miss Jane Roberts and Mrs. Fisher, and one brother, John, at Four Crosses Station are still living.  Beside his widow, he leaves five daughters and two sons as follows: - Mrs. J. A. Johnston of Smith’s Falls;  Mrs. D. M. Allison, Camden, N.Y.;  Mrs. F. H. Box, Adolphustown;  Charles A. Roberts, Montreal; Miss Winnifred Roberts, Toronto;  Morris Roberts, Toronto, and Miss Dorothea Roberts, at home.  He was twice married, his first wife, formerly Miss Mary Higginson, Hawkesbury, who died many years ago.  His second wife was formerly Miss Sarah Elliott, Tweed, and she survives.  The funeral will be held on Friday afternoon from his late residence, Cataraqui, to Christ Church, after which the remains will be transferred to Tweed for interment.  The canons of the diocese will act as pall bearers – Kingston Whig, May 17th, 1917.

On Sunday, May 31st, there passed peacefully away Mr. Bruce Robertson at his home in Sillsville. The late Bruce Robertson died on the same farm where he was born, 71 years ago, and where he had lived his life. He suffered a severe attack of heart trouble and was thought to be improving when he suddenly passed away. During his illness he was attended by a devoted wife and daughter.

He was a man of stirling qualities, a member of Sillsville United Church and a true Christian. He was not the kind to make a show, but a true and reliable man, a man of integrity and principle.

The funeral was held on Tuesday, June 2nd, from his late residence, with his pastor, Rev. G.W. Gardner in charge of the service, who spoke of his integrity and stirling qualities. Mr. Gardner was assisted in the service by Rev. H. Sanders, a former pastor. Interment was made at Sandhurst Cemetery.

Mr. Robertson leaves to mourn his passing his wife, who before her marriage was Effie Campbell; one daughter, Mrs. J.P. Cuthill, of Hawley, and three grandchildren and one brother, Orton, of Sillsville.

Sincere sympathy goes out to the sorrowing family.

Young Napanee Man, Donald Robinson, Dies of Lock Jaw -

Donald Robinson died Saturday evening, November 11th, at Kingston General Hospital, where he had been taken early the day before, suffering from lock-jaw.  The late young man who was in his twentieth year had been employed at Perry’s coal yard and had worked there until the Wednesday night before his death.  The infection which ended in his death was thought to have been caused by the sole of his foot being very slightly scratched by a nail in his shoe.  The infection quickly spread, and when the symptoms of the dreaded lock-jaw became apparent, he was removed by ambulance to the hospital, Friday morning.  After intense suffering his death followed late Saturday afternoon.

The late young man was the eldest child of Mr. and Mrs. Percy Robinson of South Napanee. Besides his parents and several younger brothers and sisters, he leaves a young wife, formerly Margaret Turner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Turner, and two small children.

THE LATE G. W. ROBINSON. Death of a Well Known Ex-Alderman This Morning. Kingstonians were shocked this morning when it became known that ex-Alderman George W. Robinson had passed away. For a few weeks past he had been suffering with hemorrhage of the lungs, but his illness was not generally known to his friends and acquaintances to whom the news of his death came as a sad surprise. Mr. Robinson was born in the township of Portland forty-seven years ago. When he was quite young, the family removed to South Fredericksburgh, where the deceased had his schooling and training in the occupation of blacksmith with the firm of Belford & Armstrong, of Bath. Later he worked with J. Jenkins in Kingston, and with firms in several of the large cities of the United States. In 1873, he returned to Kingston and was for a time in the employ of George Brown & Son. Twenty-one years ago last November he started in business for himself in a little one-story building on the site of his present establishment, and succeeded so well that the business has now grown to be the largest carriage-making establishment owned by a private individual between Toronto and Montreal. Mr. Robinson was a Methodist and belonged to the Masons, Oddfellows, Foresters and United Workmen. In politics he was a staunch Reformer and last year was one of the representatives of Frontenac Ward in the City Council. Mr. Robinson was an enthusiastic bicyclist and one of the prime movers in arranging the preliminaries of the meet which is taking place this afternoon at the K.A.A.A. track. His death on the date of this event will cause a feeling of peculiar sorrow among the city wheelmen with whom he has associated. Mr. Robinson was married November 12th  1874 to Miss Catharine Amelia Adcock, who survives him. The children, Melville, Nelson, Norman, Bert, Clifford and Florence, all reside in the city.

It is with deep feelings of sadness that we are called to pen the death of Mrs. H. Robinson of South Fredericksburgh who died of pneumonia on the morning of Nov. 6th , at the early age of 38 years. She was ill but three weeks, and often expressed a deep wish that she might recover and prayed to be spared to her dear husband and children, but, if it was God's will, she was willing and prepared for the great change, and leaves her dear mourning friends in confidence to say, "O death, where is thy sting, O grave," etc. While sick she received all the attention that a loving husband could give. She was followed from her residence by a large number of sympathizing friends and sorrowing relatives, and placed in St. Paul's church burying ground there to wait the glorious resurrection but not without leaving her mourning friends with an assurance that she passed from death unto life, and gone to be with Christ, which is far better. She leaves a kind husband and two daughters in sad bereavement, but while their hearts sink in loneliness and sorrow, may their affections be drawn from the vain things of this earth, and finally meet the dear loved one now at rest.

OBITUARY - The Late Mrs. Susannah Robinson. On Thursday, the 22nd  of May, a very estimable and Christian lady in the person of Mrs. Susannah Robinson, died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. S. Benjamin, in South Fredericksburgh, aged 70 years, 7 months and 8 days. The deceased was a woman of marked ability and perseverance and succeeded in educating and fitting for the world a large family by her own unaided exertions. Besides the daughter mentioned above, she leaves four sons, to manhood grown, to mourn her loss. Maxwell, George, Ceylon and -----, the last named succeeds to the homestead. The other three are engaged in business vocations and are men of ability and undoubted integrity in the communities wherein they reside. Her death was quite sudden, and coming down upon us as it did it cast a deep gloom over our entire neighbourhood. She was interred at Sandhurst on Sunday last, and after a very able sermon by the Rev. R.S. Forneri, who discoursed from the xi chapter of St. John and 4th  verse. During the course of his remarks he spoke of the deceased in the highest terms, saying she was a dutiful wife, a loving mother and a sincere friend. That she in every "storm" of life was 'oak' and 'rock' but in sunshine was 'vine' and 'flower'. To quote his words: Were every one to whom she did some loving service to bring a blossom to her grave, she would sleep tonight beneath a wilderness of flowers.

SAD ACCIDENT - On the 11th inst., Mr. C. Roblin, son of Mr. Philip Roblin of Sophiasburgh, in crossing the Mohawk Bay, with a load of timber, drawn by a span of horses, had the misfortune to have the ice give way under him and melancholy to relate, was with his horses drowned.  Another young man, with another team was in company, whose horses suffered the same fate, but who escaped.  The body of young Mr. Roblin was found by neighbors, and interred on the following Saturday.

 

Melancholy Occurrence - On Wednesday last (the 11th inst.), as Mr. Caleb Roblin, son of Philip Roblin, Esqr., of Sophiasburg, was crossing the Mohawk Bay, to the former place, with a load of oak lumber, his horse and himself fell through the ice, where all were unfortunately drowned.  He had in company with him a young man by the name of Peter Wood, with another team, which was also lost;  Wood only making his escape. Diligent search was made for the body of Mr. Roblin by the surrounding neighbours, (to whom his relatives feel themselves under heavy obligations for their kindness and humanity), but having toiled till after midnight they abandoned the search till day light, when the corpse was found.  His funeral took place on Saturday - a very impressive discourse was delivered on the occasion by the Revd. Mr. Marcus from these memorable words: "Jesus wept."  His remains were followed to the grave by a numerous assembly of friends and acquaintance.

Mr. Roblin was an active, promising young man, aged twenty five years.  His loss will be long and deeply felt by all with whom he was acquainted.   How true it is, that "in the midst of life, we are in death!"  (Com. Sophiasburg, February 15, 1835)

Edwin Platt Roblin - A resident of Richmond Hill since his retirement in 1952, Edwin Platt Roblin died at his home there April 30, after a brief illness.

Rev. Charles Higginson, of Richmond Hill United Church, assisted by Rev. Dr. M.C. Johnston, of Thornhill Baptist Church, conducted the funeral service in the Wright and Taylor Funeral Home on Monday afternoon, May 2. Alan Frizzell, Robert Gordon, Elmer Irwin, Harvey Hogan, Freeman Coone and William Drinkwater acted as pall-bearers and interment was in St. John's Norway Cemetery, in Toronto.

The ancestry of Mr. Roblin, elder son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Jacob F. Roblin, Adolphustown, probably contained more United Empire Loyalist blood than that of any other person of his generation. The list of his ancestors included such well-known U.E.L. names as Owen and Stephen Roblin, Abraham, Peter and Joseph Ruttan, Benjamin Allison, Phoebe Davidson, William Carr, Peter Rose, Ernest Snyder and Solomon Huff, who donated the land on Hay Bay for the first Methodist Church in Upper Canada.

Prior to his marriage to Effa Stewart Alcombrack (also of U.E.L. extraction) in 1906, the late
Edwin  Roblin held a commission, first in the Royal Canadian Army and later in the American Army.

Mr. Roblin was well-known as a home-builder in Scarborough, Forest Hill Village, North Toronto and Richmond Hill. Formerly an active member of Fairlawn United Church in Toronto, he transferred his membership on retirement, to Richmond Hill United Church.

Surviving the late E.P. Roblin, Sr., are his widow, Effa Stewart Roblin; three sons, Rev. Alva S. Roblin, of Sudbury; William Theodore Roblin and Edwin P. Roblin, Jr., of Richmond Hill; one daughter, Mrs. Victor Shetler (Helen Dee), of Napanee; and a younger brother, A. Overton Roblin, of Ottawa. He was predeceased in 1916 by an infant daughter, Dora Mabel.

JOHN ROSE -

Was born in the township of Montague, county of Lanark, Nov. 26th, 1806.  His early life was spent in the midst of the hardships and privations of a sparsely settled section of country.  His advantages were necessarily limited;  but, at the early age of thirteen, he was led to Christ through the ministry of Rev. Calvin N. Flint.  He, together with his parents and an older brother, united with the Methodist Church in the month of September, 1820, and from that time to the day of his death, he was faithful to his Christian vows.  At the very beginning of his Christian life he was recognized as eminently suited  to fill responsible positions in the Church.  He was appointed class-leader by Rev. Henry Shaler in 1834 was licensed as an exhorter by Rev. Benjamin Nankerville in 1844, and received his first local preachers license from Rev. R. Brewster in 1863, and continued in that relation to the Church, faithful and useful, to the close of life.  Every office of trust in the church was filled by him with faithfulness and acceptability.  When a boy the writer of this notice had some knowledge of our departed brother.  When sent to this charge in June 1884, he was ready and kind in his welcome, and although burdened by age and infirmity, I found him ever ready to assist in the work of the church.  He was faithful in attending the means of grace, never absent until disease peramptorily forbade his presence in the house of prayer.  In the spring of 1885, he was seized by that fearful and painful disorder, Bright’s disease of the kidneys, and for about fourteen months was a great sufferer, but was wonderfully sustained by divine grace.  He knew in whom he trusted, and was persuaded that God would keep him to the end.  His testimony to the power of saving grace was clear and positive to the last. His last admonition to his family and neighbors was “Meet me in heaven”  After a month of radient waiting, he sweetly “fell asleep” July 7th, 1886, and exchanged earth for heaven.  Surely “to him to live was Christ, and to die was gain.”  Father Rose was married three times.  His third wife and a large family of pious sons and daughters are left to mourn the loss of a kind husband and loving father.  May they all meet again in the better land.  At a meeting of the Official Board, held soon after Mr. Rose’s decease, a resolution was unanimously passed expressing their deep sense of the loss the Church had sustained, their high appreciation of his many years of useful service and their sympathy with the bereaved family.     A. R. ORSEN.

Sedgwick as leader, she was hopefully converted to God.  On the 18th day of November, 1885, she was united in marriage to John H. Ross.  Although her stay with him was but short, yet her influence as a Christian in the community in which they dwelt was felt by all her associates.

Although young in years, she seemed ripe for her eternal home, and God took her from kind friends and a loving husband on the morning of the 9th of September.  A few hours before her death, in conversation with her now bereaved husband, she expressed her full trust and confidence in God, whether she lived or died, that all would be well, for she had fully consecrated her life to him who gave it.  On the 11th of September, 1886, we took all that remained to us of Mary Gordon Ross to Silver Hill cemetery, and deposited it in the grave to wait the resurrection of the just.  Then with her pastor the Rev. Mr. Jamieson, we repaired to the chapel and listened to an excellent discourse from Hebrews xii.1

We are confident we voice the feeling of the whole community when we tender to Bro. Ross our warmest sympathy in this hour of bereavement.   W.S.

OBITUARY – In the passing of William Alfred Rose, Napanee has lost one of its best known and esteemed citizens. Mr. Rose was born in Richmond in 1842 and has spent nearly all his days in this vicinity.  He was the son of the late Archibald and Mary Rose.  He was married in 18— to Nancy, daughter of the late Andrew Fraser. Mr. Rose grew up on the farm like many Canadians of his time and his early experience in farm life gave him a good strong frame and an ability to adapt himself to the various offices to which he was called in after life.  From the farm he went into business, and for a number of years he conducted business in Napanee.  Subsequently he was appointed Inspector for Lennox, and was acknowledged one of the most prudent, careful and efficient officers in that department that the Government had given these Counties. Through his life he has been an ardent temperance advocate and by his departure the Temperance and Moral Reform people have lost a valuable reliable worker.  He was anxious for the moral uplift of the youth of his town.  Mr. Rose was a quiet, retiring man, gentle and kind in his manner.  If the greatest thing a man can do for his Heavenly Father is to be kind to some of His other children, then he did great things.  He was a man of deep convictions, and on all moral questions no one doubted on which side he stood.  He seemed always to endeavor to be a little better than his word, a little more generous than his promise, and a little larger in deed than in speech.  He was a member in full standing in Trinity Church.  In all his illness he never murmured, he had committed all to the care of his Heavenly Father and was waiting patiently until his change should come.  After a long and wearisome illness he passed quietly to his rest on May 12th, leaving behind for the comfort of his loved ones a clear testimony of his faith in Christ and  of his bright prospect of a home where sickness never comes.  He leaves to mourn their loss a wife and two daughters, Mrs. Sale, of London, Eng., and Mrs. Fred Wilson, of Glenora.  They feel that He has given their beloved sleep. – Com.

MEMORIAL SERVICE – A short memorial service was held at Trinity Church, on Tuesday evening, May 13th at 8 o’clock for Mrs. W. A. Rose, who passed away peacefully at her residence, on April 27th.  A large number of her friends attended to pay their last tribute to one so deeply mourned and for so many years a resident of Napanee.  The service opened with the hymn, “Thy Will Be Done”, followed with a scripture lesson taken from St. John 11:25 and 26, seeming most appropriate. Mrs. Finkle spoke of her great intimacy with Mrs. Rose, with whom she had been acquainted for twenty years, also mentioning her great church devotion.  Mrs. Richardson spoke of Mrs. Rose’s entire confidence in God, adding that in losing so old and valued a friend she was indeed personally bereaved. Mrs. Rose leaves behind to mourn her loss, two daughters, Mrs. F. S. Wilson, of Belleville, and Mrs. C.V. Sale, of London, England; six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Thomas Russell - An old and respected resident of North Fredericksburgh, died on Sunday last, aged 8- years. Deceased was born in Stirlingshire, Scotland, and came to Canada when about twenty years of age. After about two years he returned to his native land and married Miss Jean Rennie the following year. In 1865, with his wife and family, he returned to Canada, and for two years resided on a farm in Camden, after which he removed to a farm on Hay Bay. To Mr. and Mrs. Russell were born two sons, Walter (deceased), and James, and three daughters, two of whom survive him, Mrs. Wm. M. Baird, of North Fredericksburgh, and Mrs. Peter Chalmers, Adolphustown. Mr. Russell was an intelligent, industrious and plodding Scotchman, and notwithstanding a severe loss sustained years ago though an imperfect deed to a beautiful farm he purchased on the shores of Hay Bay, paying $6,000 therefor, and which he was compelled to give up, he amassed a liberal competence for his declining years. The particulars of the losing of his farm will be remembered by many. He paid as above for the property, on which there was not a building. He at once erected a fine house, barn and outbuildings, set out a large orchard, and brought the land to a fine state of cultivation. After a number of years, and when all these improvements were made (the property at that time worth at least $12,000), a claimant for the farm appeared, who after a long course in the law courts, proved that the farm was his, and the party from whom he had purchased was not entitled to sell the property. After leaving the farm he purchased a house at Little Creek, where he lived until the death of his wife, in 1891, when he went to reside with his son, James, who owns the Henry Ham farm, and where he died. Deceased was a life-long conservative, but was liberal in his views towards his opponents. He was a consistent member of the Presbyterian church, and died in the full hope of a glorious resurrection. The funeral took place on Tuesday last, the services being conducted by his pastor, Rev. W. W. Peck, the venerable Rev. David Wilson delivering a most impressive prayer at the close. The remains were interred in Napanee cemetery, a large concourse of friends and acquaintances following them to the grave. His granddaughter, Miss Jean Russell, died just nine days previous. The sympathy of the community goes to the bereaved relatives.

DIED IN EARLY YOUTH – Walter A.

Rutherford,

William

 

WILLIAM RUTHERFORD, Esq. - Was born in the county of Monaghan, Ireland in the year 1815,  and in the year 1833, he emigrated to Canada, and settled in the township of Cavan, near Peterborough.  In 1842 he removed to the township of Wellesley, County of Waterloo, and in 1845 he came to the village of Millbank, County of Perth.  Here he commenced business, and in a few years became one of the most extensive and successful merchants in the county.  He was appointed the first post-master of the village forty years ago, the duties of which he faithfully discharged till death.  For years he held a position in the councils of the township and county.  In the year 1853, he married Miss Elenor Freeborn, a devoted Christian, who exerted a blessed influence in her new home.  Their house was for many years the home of ministers, where they were hospitably entertained.  Bro. Rutherford was universally respected and loved by all, and loved most by those who knew him best.  He was a man of genuine sterling worth, and known by all as the poor man’s friend.  It was not until a short time before his death that he received a clear evidence of his acceptance with God.  The Sabbath before his death, by his request, I administered to him   the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, when he expressed unshaken confidence in Christ as his Saviour.  A letter received a few days before his death from his son Boyd, of Manitoba, expressing the very great pleasure it gave him to hear of the conversion of his brothers and sisters at home, was read to the dying father amid mingled feelings of joy and sorrow.  His son William, who was by his bedside day and night reading to him the blessed promises of God’s word, had his own soul wonderfully blessed in listening to the triumphal expressions of his dying father, such as “My trust is all in Jesus;”  “He is my only Comfort:”  “My work is all done, and I am tired and want to go to Jesus.”  All that kind friends and medical skill could do was of no avail, so in a little over a week inflammation of the lungs did its sad work, and on the 10th of February, 1886, in the seventy-first year of his age, our dear friend and brother fell asleep in Jesus.  The funeral was one of the largest  ever known in this part of the country.  All the ministers of the different churches of the place were present.  We laid all that was mortal of a true friend and neighbor in the cold grave in the Wellesley cemetery, in sure and certain hope of a glorious resurrection.  The writer preached a funeral sermon the following Sabbath in the Methodist Church to a very large congregation, when the church was all draped in mourning.  Mr. Rutherford was a kind and devoted husband and a loving and affectionate father, and leaves a widow and ten children to mourn his loss, but they mourn not as those without hope.  They know father has landed safe on the other shore.  Six of his children were happily converted to God a few weeks before his death, and are now consecrating themselves to God and his service.  May they make up an unbroken family in heaven.

Late Allan Ruttan, M.D. - He Died at His Residence in Napanee

Was one of the best known physicians in Eastern Ontario - A sketch of his career - He was a descendant of U.E .Loyalists - Enjoyed a fine practice

Dr. Allan Ruttan died at Napanee on Friday at 1:30 p.m., after a lengthened illness, in the seventy-third year of his age. The deceased was one of the best known physicians in Ontario and for many years a member of the Ontario medical council, representing the Trent and Newcastle division.

Deceased was born in Adolphustown on January 26th, 1826. He was educated at the Picton grammar school and entered McGill college, Montreal, from which he graduated in medicine and surgery in 1852. Soon after he located in the then thriving village of Newburgh, of which he was a prominent resident for a number of years. At that time Newburgh was a successful rival of Napanee as regards population, prosperity and business enterprise, and much in advance in its educational facilities. The appointment of Napanee as the county town on separation from Frontenac county, together with the location of the Grand Trunk railway, were the turning points against Newburgh. The doctor became convinced that Newburgh was not destined to grow much and moved to Picton, where he practiced for two or three years. He located to Napanee in 1865 and has been a resident ever since.

Very soon after commencing practice in Newburgh the doctor was married in St. George church, Montreal, to Miss Caroline Smith, a highly esteemed young lady of that city, with whom he became acquainted in his college days. She has been a help-mate, indeed, to him ever since. They had five children. The surviving sons are Prof. R. Fullord Ruttan, B.A., M.D., professor of practical chemistry and registrar of the medical faculty of McGill college, Montreal, and G.F. Ruttan, practicing barrister, of Napanee. Two daughters, Ida E. and Bertha E., died in womanhood.

The doctor and his family were active members of the Church of England. For years St. Mary Magdalene church had not had a more faithful and reliable member. He took an active and prominent part in the erection of the new and substantial church, donating to it the beautiful circle window in the front and probably as fine a specimen of real good taste and artistic skill as can anywhere be found in this section of country. In many other ways, temporarily and spiritually, he did much to advance the church's interests.

He also took a very active interest in educational matters. For years, in his earlier days, he was superintendent of schools for Camden township. In Napanee he was lively in the development of our present excellent school system. He was for years a member of the school board, and was its chairman for several years. In politics the doctor was a warm adherent of the conservative party.

He always enjoyed a large and lucrative practice and was the "beloved physician" of many large families for forty years. Had he been less generous to the poor, more exacting in his charges and as sharp as many about his collections, no doubt he would have become a very wealthy man. Few were ever more considerate of the poor. He frequently boasted that he had never sued anyone in his life. In consequence of his kindly nature in this way no doubt thousands of dollars honestly earned in his practice were never paid to him at all.

The doctor had an honest pride in the fact that he was a descendant of the U.E. Loyalist pioneers. His grandfather, with his family, were among the first band of loyal refugees who landed at Adolphustown in 1784. The family located on the front of that township near the bay shore, between the Allisons on the east and Allens on the west, and here they made their  permanent home. He was the proud possessor of a veritable grandfather's clock, which his grandfather had, and is claimed to have been the very first clock ever set going in that old township.

The funeral occurs on Sunday afternoon.

Elisha

 

Another of the old landmarks of Adolphustown has passed away, in the person of Elisha Ruttan, who died at his home on the 20th  inst. He was a grandson of the U. E. L. pioneer Captain Peter Ruttan, who selected as a portion of the grant to which he was entitled as a Loyalist that picturesque point jutting out into the Bay of Quinte, between Bass Cove and Perch Cove. Here generations of Ruttans have lived, and no other name has ever been entered against these lands in the Registry office. Upon this farm Elisha Ruttan was born, and here for upwards of ninety-two and one half years has he lived, rarely leaving his comfortable home amid its beautiful surroundings of water, farm and woodland. He led a simple life but was possessed of an unusual amount of good common sense of which he made practical use in the management of his own private affairs in his study of public questions and in his intercourse with his neighbors. The result of his quiet and reserved manner living was that his farm was one of the best equipped and best cultivated in the County. He was well posted upon the events of the world and never entertained extreme views and succeeded in winning the esteem of all who were brought in contact with him, and at the time of his death no man in the Township was more highly respected than he. He leaves behind him three sons, Benson and John, on the old homestead, and Charles, a successful fruit grower in the Niagara District.

He has for many years lived in the family  of his son John by whom and by all its members he has been treated with unvarying and the most affectionate kindness and tenderness. He was at an early age initiated into the doctrines of the Lutheran Church to which he has through his long and consistent life, steadily adhered. He was by nature of a cheerful, happy disposition, and his attachment and devotion to the British Government, was warm, steady and unwavering to the last hour of his earthy existence - He has left five sons, three daughters, and a numerous progeny of grandchildren and great grandchildren enjoying all the comforts and necessaries of life.
