HAYBURN - An old resident has passed away from our midst in the person of Ephraim Wagar, at the residence of his son, Michael, aged 89 years, 2 months and 3 days. He was a son of William Wagar, who came to Canada at the time of the Revolutionary War, from the United States, and settled on the farm, which is yet the old Wagar homestead. Ephraim was the last of a family of fourteen, all of whom lived to a good old age, his father dying at the age of 104 years. He lived under five different rulers. He was born in 1815, when King George III reigned; next was George IV, William IV, Queen Victoria and King Edward VII. Deceased had a good memory, up to the last, and could recall a great many incidents of his boyhood days, which were very interesting. He was always a strong and hearty man, never requiring the service of a doctor until his last illness, which occurred about two months ago. He married Hannah Card, daughter of Stephen Card, of the Township of Camden, who died seven years ago. They raised a family of eight boys and one girl, namely, Henry, Lester and Charles, of Napanee; John of Rowland, Manitoba, Dr. Ephraim of Bijou Hills, South Dakota; Mary, wife of Wm. Benn, of Morven, and Michael, who is Reeve of the Township of South Fredericksburgh. Two boys, William and Robert, died a few years ago. He also leaves thirty-six grandchildren and thirty-eight great-grandchildren, all living. In politics he was a Liberal, and although not connected with any church, he was a firm believer in Christ, and spent a great many of his later days in reading the Bible. The funeral service was conducted at the house, by the Presbyterian minister of Bath, Rev. Caldwell, assisted by the Rev. Thomas, Methodist minister of Conway, on Monday 3d Oct. The body was placed in the vault, a large number attending to pay their last tribute of respect. The friends have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.

Garrison, his brother-in-law, near Sillsville, on Tuesday, February 20th, after an illness of some duration. Dr. Wagar was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Ephraim Wagar and was one of a large family of whom the only remaining member is Mr. Michael Wagar of Sillsville.

He received his early education at Sillsville and the Napanee Collegiate. After graduation from High School, he taught at Sillsville and Hay Bay and later entered Queen's University where he took his doctor's degree in 1896. For a short time he was associated with the late Dr. Ward in Napanee. After his marriage to Mary Garrison, he went to Coe Hill where he practiced his profession for some time. Nearly thirty years ago they went to North Dakota, where for some years the doctor practiced at Bijou Hills. In 1926, owing to the ill health of the Doctor, he and Mrs. Wagar returned to Canada, and took up residence with Mr. Garrison, at Sillsville.

The funeral service was held at Vanluven & Wartman's undertaking parlor in Napanee, on Friday afternoon, with Rev. Harry Pawson of Trinity United Church as officiating minister. The body was placed in Riverview Cemetery vault and interment will take place in the spring.

Dr. Wagar is survived by his widow, and also two daughters, who reside in South Dakota.

A NONOGENARIAN - (**written in - Jan 10 1903**) Mr. Jacob H. Wagar, one of the old landmarks of the county, died at the residence of his son, Dr. N. Wagar, on Saturday morning last, aged 92 years and four months. Deceased retained all his faculties to the last, and was able to be about the house as usual the day before he died. The cause of his death was evidently heart failure. Mr. Wagar was born in the Township of South Fredericksburgh, where he spent most of his days, coming to Napanee a few years ago to reside with his son. Deceased was a staunch liberal, and in his younger days took a deep interest in the affairs of his native township, and sat at its council board. Mrs. Wagar predeceased him eight years, and out of a large family of eleven children there now remain but four, Dr. Wagar, Napanee, Allan Wagar, South River Road, George, on the homestead, and Mrs. Arthur Snyder, Thousand Island Park, NY. Years ago a sad misfortune befell the family. Mr. and Mrs. Wagar had gone out to spend the evening with a neighbor. During their absence the house took fire and on their return it was reduced to ashes, their five children perishing in the flames.

They were sisters, and daughters of Thomas Wager, who lives on the bank of the Nappanee river, near to the place where they perished. The one was married and the other unmarried.

ISAAC WALKER -  Was born of Methodist parents in county Sligo, Ireland, in 1846.  He died at Mono Road, April 9th, 1885.  The class met at his father’s house in Ireland.  Deep impressions were thus made upon his susceptible heart.  Early in life he learned to believe in the necessity, the reality, the blessedness of heartfelt piety.  In 1867,  under the ministry of Rev. B. Sherlook, on Albion Circuit, he found the one thing needful.  To the end he kept the faith, enduring as seeing him who is invisible.  For two weeks, as death was laying his hand on a strong frame, he suffered agonies of pain, but without a murmur.  “Not a doubt,” was his repeated testimony to his minister in regard to the Saviour’s pardoning love.  Again and again he expressed his gratitude that he had been led to Christ before the days of pain and dying agony.  To his wife, the second daughter of Bro. Joseph Lindsay, with whom, for sixteen years, he had shared life’s sorrows and its joys, he said, “I am going to leave you;  it is not now I have to begin to seek God;  I’ll soon be drinking at the fountain.”  Ten children, from whom he felt it hard to part, were left behind.  Trusting to that faithful God whose promise is to be “a father of the fatherless,”  he was enabled to say, “Thy will be done.”  The sudden call of one so generally esteemed, and so much needed in life’s early prime has made a deep impression.  May the Holy Spirit make it sanctifying and saving [signed] Geo.

MRS. WALKER - Relict of the late Alexander Walker, Esq., Mitchell, county of Perth, Ont., died at Lion’s Head, in the house of her son-in-law, Feb. 14th, 1887.  Her maiden name was Jessie Robertson, a native of Blair-Athol, Scotland.  She was godly from her youth to her age.  In early life she was a member of the Presbyterian Church in her native place.  In company with her husband and a growing family she came to Canada thirty-three or thirty-four years ago. Owing to distance from the services of the people of her early communion, and that the Methodists were close by, she gave her name as a member with them.  She was a constant reader and warm admirer of the GUARDIAN.  Her piety was constant, consistent, and deep-toned;  her intelligent, broad catholicity of spirit, was very refreshing.  At times it sounded like her Master’s own voice as he said, “Whosoever shall do the will of my Father in Heaven, the same is my mother and sister and brother.”  During her long life her faith failed not, though severely tried. Seven of her ten children and her husband having been called away before her - one of them in the very prime of life by drowning - her chastened cheerfulness, faith, hope and love showed how grace can sustain its children on the earth and make meet for heaven.  Her remains were taken by train from the Peninsula to Mitchell, and laid by the side of her husband to await the resurrection of the just.  [signed]  Robert Carson

DEATH OF C. W. WALRATH - On Friday morning, Mar. 15, 1918, Chas Washington Walrath entered into rest.  He was born on Dec 27 1842, near Centreville, in Camden Township, and at the age of six years moved with his parents to the farm on which he resided till death.  Chas. Walrath was known to his many friends and neighbors as a man of clean, honest and upright character, also one of the most active men in agricultural pursuits in the township.  He was a staunch Liberal in politics though never a politician.  Dropsical heart trouble was the cause of death and though his last illness was of less than a year’s duration he was a great sufferer.  He was resigned to go and many times during the last two days while his loved ones were standing by his bedside, he murmured, “Lord take me now.” and after the poor tired body was at rest, many spoke of the calm, sweet smile that had lingered even through the pangs of death.  Besides his widow, to whom he was married in Selby, on Nov. 23 1880, he leaves his only child, Mrs. George H. Brooks, to mourn the loss of a kind husband and father.  Although he came of a family of twelve brothers and sisters only one sister survives, the youngest of his family, Mrs. J. Yeomans, Wesley.  The funeral service which was attended by a large concourse of friends, was held at Selby meth. church, on Sunday at 10.30.  Rev. Mr. Garratt, his pastor, who had visited him several times during his illness, took the service.  Mr. Garratt chose as his text, Chron. 1 Chap 29, part of the 15th verse, - “Our days on the earth are as a shadow and there is none abiding.”

All the pain and grief are over,

Every restless tossing passed.  He is now at peace forever,

Safely home in Heaven at last.

And He cam Himself to meet him,

In that way so hard to tread,

And with Jesus’ arm to lean on,

Could he have one doubt or dread.

Washington Walrath.  She was born in Camden, near Croyden,  Ont. on June 17, 1863 and was the youngest daughter of the late Jane Sexsmith Morgan and Henry Morgan, who were born in Ireland and came to Canada with their parents, while young.  On November 23rd 1880, she was united in marriage to Charles Walrath and she with her husband, spent their entire married life on the farm at Grieves Corners.  Her husband predeceased her in March, 1918.  She was one of six brothers and sisters, three of whom predeceased her, namely;  Mrs. H. Smith (Olivia) in Honolulu, Hawaii;  Mrs. Alva Hargrave (Debrim) Hewvelton, N. Y., and Mr. George Morgan, Roblin, Ont.  Two brothers survive, William Morgan, Mountain View, Calif., and Rev. Henry Victor Morgan, of Tacoma, Washington.  she is survived by an only daughter, Mrs. Geo H. Brooks, with whom she resided.  She also leaves two grandchildren, Garnet Brooks, and Mrs. J. H. Ramsay (Mary Elaine Brooks) of Newburgh and three great grandchildren, Margaret, Billy and Beverley Ramsay.

A daughter of deceased, Alma Jane Walrath died in 1884 at the age of two years. 

Mrs. Walrath was in failing health for five years, having suffered a stroke in January 1936, but was able to be about and attended divine service at Forest Mills two weeks before her death.  She will be greatly missed in the home circle and in the church, which she so dearly liked to attend.  Two days before her passing she read aloud in a clear voice from her Bible, words of comfort to loved ones and friends present with her.

The funeral service, which was largely attended was held on Sunday October 18th from her late residence to Camden V Cemetery.  Rev. J. T. Caswell of the United Church gave a comforting message and Mr. and Mrs. Ward Wartman sang an appropriate duet.  The pallbearers were Messrs. Adam Scott, King Scott, Lewis Fox, John Smith, Milton Smith and Stuart Baker.  At the same hour of the funeral service here, her brother, Rev. H. V. Morgan, at Tacoma, having received the telegram announcing her passing, just as he was about to enter the pulpit of his church, asked the congregation for permission to change the service and make it a memorial to his sister.  The music was as though selected for the unexpected service.  The organ voluntary was the Elegie by Massanet, and the solo, “Life Weaving”, music by Alfred Wooler and words by the Rev. Father Kabb.  Mr. Morgan spoke of his sister’s life of their childhood together and read a number of his poems in which he had referred to his “black-eyed sister” of girlhood and later to the “white-haired one.”  The benediction “Sunset” closed the Tacoma service.

Obituary - Mrs. William J. Walsh

A sad gloom was cast over the community on Friday morning, July 1st, when it became known that Mrs. Wm. Walsh, a long and much respected resident of North Fredericksburgh, had passed peacefully away at the Kingston Hospital. All that loving hands could do was of no avail, and although her sufferings were severe she bore them with Christian fortitude.

The deceased was formerly Jane Ann Moore, a daughter of the late Isabella and Conrad Moore. Her early childhood was spent in Fredericksburgh and in 1886 she married Wm. J. Walsh. To this union were born eleven children, two of whom predeceased her some years ago. Mrs. Walsh was highly esteemed by all who knew her, and her kind, unselfish disposition, unassuming manner, reliability and readiness to help others will ever keep her memory green. She was a consistent and enthusiastic member of St. Patrick's Church, Napanee, where the funeral was conducted by Rev. Fr. O'Connor, attended by a throng of sympathizing friends. The spiritual and floral tributes were numerous, showing the high esteem in which the deceased was held.

Besides her sorrowing husband, she leaves to mourn her loss, two daughters and seven sons, Mrs. A.B. Smith and Miss Nellie, at home; Edmund, Swan River, Manitoba; Percy, of Toronto, and Robert, Albert, Harry, Ferdy and John, of Napanee; one sister, Mrs. Geo. Richardson, and four brothers, James and Robert, of Gretna; Andrew, of Moosejaw, Sask., and David, of Dakota. Her remains were laid to rest in the Roman Catholic cemetery, Napanee.

DEATH OF DR. G. C. T. WARD – Our citizens were shocked to learn on Saturday evening that one of our highly esteemed and most able physicians, in the person of Dr. George Collins Tremaine Ward, had suddenly passed away at his residence, East St., heart trouble being the cause.  Dr. Ward was born at Cataraqui, Ont., in 1856.  He lived for a few years on a farm at Sandy Creek, N.Y., and afterwards attended Grammar School at Kingston and Bath.  In the year 1879, he graduated from Queen’s University Kingston, and commenced the practice of his profession in Napanee the same year.  During his long residence in Napanee – some thirty-three years – the doctor has given much of his time and ability for the welfare of the town.  He has represented East Ward for many years in the Town Council and in 1897 was elected Mayor.  He also gave valuable service on the Board of Electric Light Commissioners when the town had a municipal plant.  Doctor Ward was one of the many examples  of what a young man of the right stuff may attain to in this Canada of ours.  He was a self made man, and from the age of fifteen years was largely dependent upon himself.  While living at Bath, for part of two summers, he drove the mail from Kingston to Sandhurst and return daily.  While a teacher he spent his holidays selling books and maps.  At College he won, by competitive examination, the appointment of Demonstrator of Anatomy.  By these various means he managed to get through College a little better than even with the world, and during the thirty-three years of his residence in Napanee had worked up a large and lucrative practice.  Besides his sorrowing wife, he leaves five children, Dr. Harold Ward, New York City;  Mrs. H.P. Lander, Brookfield, Mo.;  Mrs. James Andrews, Boston, Mass.;  Miss Grace and Master Horace at home, to mourn his death.  The funeral, which was largely attended, was held on Wednesday afternoon at two o’clock, service being held at Trinity Methodist church, thence to Riverside cemetery.

Tremaine Ward, which has been her home for the past twenty years, was born in Rodman, N.Y. in 1816.  She came to Waterloo, now named Cataraqui, when a young woman, as assistant teacher in her brother’s school, afterwards marrying John Ferris Ward of that place, whose death occurred nine years ago.  Her father, Reuben Tremaine, was a congregational preacher, and the family were brought up according to the strict Puritan customs.  Her husband was a member of the Society of Friends.  The children, three boys and two girls are all living, inheriting vigorous constitutions.  Mrs. Ward was a woman of unusual intellectual powers, a student and lover of nature, and always taking keen interest in current affairs, reading the daily papers until the last few weeks. She kept in touch with the friends of early life by correspondence and visits, until their dropping off one by one, she was nearly alone.  Our venerable townsman, Mr. John Gibbard, was a schoolmate in Rodman.  Her firmly established Christian faith enabled her to meet death in the same calm, cheerful spirit that had upheld her in the inevitable trials of life.  She retained her mental faculties until the last.  Her physical death was of the gentlest like the dying away of a summer breeze.  Her practical sense in every day affairs her unswerving faith in God’s guidance, and her artistic nature, were elements of character which cause her to be held in loving remembrance.

Napanee has lost one of its well-known and much respected citizens in the death of Mr. D. S. Warner, which occurred at his residence here, on John Street, early Wednesday morning, 29th  inst., aged about 87 years. He was a native of Wilton, a son of the late Sidney Warner, J. P., for many years one of the leading businessmen and citizens of this county, and an ex-warden. Deceased spent all his life in this county. He was five years in business at Colebrook and the balance of his business life in Wilton.

He was a man of education and intelligence, always genial and kindly, and had a very large circle of friends. He had not been in good health, but no one supposed his end was so soon. He had only been confined to his house a couple of weeks. He married Miss Georgina Walker, of Odessa, who survives him, with their two children, Dr. Albert F. Warner, a practicing physician, in Toronto, and Luella, wife of Mr. W. M. O'Beirne, publisher of the Stratford Beacon. He was for many years a member of the Methodist church, and was one of the Board of Trustees of the Eastern Church here at the time of his death. In politics he was a Liberal.

Cut off in the Prime of Life – Much surprise was created in town on Monday last by the announcement that Mr. John Billings Warner, of Lindsay, had died the evening previous.  It was known to some of his friends here that he had not been well for some time past, but they little expected his end was so near at hand. Deceased was the eldest son of the late Billings Warner, of Yarker, who while bathing with his brother James, (now of New York), in the river there, got beyond his depth, and being unable to swim, was drowned.  Mrs. Warner, his widow, afterwards married the late Capt. Edmund Hooper, M. P. for Lennox, and died about a year ago at Lindsay.  About twenty years ago with his brother Isaac, now also of Lindsay, he started business in Napanee and later was a traveller for a Toronto firm.  A few years ago he started an extensive dry goods business in Lindsay, which he carried on successfully until his death. Deceased married a daughter of the late Lyman Moore, Hamilton, who with seven children survive  him.  Mr. Warner was an excellent business man and a favorite with all with whom he became acquainted.  He had a large circle of relatives and acquaintances in Napanee and vicinity, who will  regret his early demise (aged 52 years) in the prime of life.  The bereaved wife and brother have the sympathy of their many friends in this section.  The funeral took place on Wednesday, the remains being placed in the vault at Lindsay.

A. E.

 

SERGT. A. E. WARTMAN eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. George Wartman of Newburgh and a nephew of Mrs. M. E. Shorey, 151 Robert Street, died in hospital in France on Oct 16 from a wound in the thigh received on Sept 17 while he was helping to bring in the wounded.  Pte. Wartman was studying medicine at Queen’s University, Kingston, and came to Toronto to enlist in the 5th Field ambulance Canadian Army Medical Corps, with which he went overseas.  He was [illegible] years of age.  He was a member of the Masonic Order.

 

THE LATE SERGT. A. E. WARTMAN, B.A.

In the death of Sergt. A. E. Wartman, B.A., Canada has lost one of her most promising young men.  He was born at Wesley, near Newburgh, where his father, George E. Wartman, still resides.

At twelve years of age he gained admittance into the Newburgh High School, from which he secured his Second Class certificate, with honors, also his Junior matriculation.  Wishing a University course, he went to Napanee Collegiate in order to receive his Senior Matriculation.

In the fall of 1909, he entered Queen’s University, starting an Arts course.  Always being a lover of nature and an out-door life, at the commencement of his second year at college, in addition to his Arts course he decided to take out a B.Sc. degree with a view to being a Civil Engineer.

In 1912, he secured his B.A. degree, but a severe attack of heart trouble unfitted him for the strenuous life of a Civil Engineer, and led him to decide on a course in medicine.

At the outbreak of war he offered his services to his country.  Failing to pass the medical examination at Regina, he again offered himself at Toronto, where he was accepted.

In place of coming home the fall of 1914 to enter upon his third year of medical work, he came to tell his parents and brothers that he had enlisted and was accepted for overseas service, as a member of the 5th Field ambulance Corps.  “For you know,”, he said, “I thought you would consent to my going, when you knew that wounded men lie for days where they fall on the battlefield, unattended and with no one to help them.”

April, 1915, he crossed to England.  He was soon in active service in France, where his thoughts were of others.  His work on the two terrible days of September 15th and 16th, 1916, secured for him the recommendation of a Distinguished Conduct medal.

On September 17th, while manfully and cheerfully doing his duty, of rescuing others who had fallen in the fierce of the fight, he, himself received his death wound, from a piece of shrapnel entering his right side and penetrating his lung.  Being weakened from the wound, which was most serious in itself, he apparently seemed to hold his own for  a few weeks, until pneumonia set in and he died October 16th.

His superior officer paid him this tribute, “He has been of great use to his comrades, his officers and his country.  I have depended on him often as much as on my graduated medical officers.”

Sergt. Wartman was a member of the Methodist Church from a boy.  At a farewell given him by his friends and the members of his Sunday School class, he assured them he had thoroughly considered the step he was taking, from all its standpoints, and should he not return all was well.  About the time of his enlistment he left this autograph which certainly seemed to be his motto: - “Lost is that day, Whose low, departing sun, Sees not to man, Some little kindness done.”

On Sunday afternoon, November 5th, an impressive memorial Service was held in the Methodist Church at Wesley, conducted by the Pastor, Rev. E. Farnsworth, assisted by Rev. C. W. DeMille, and D. A. Nesbitt, B.A., a former teacher.  The masons were in attendance, he being a member of the Prince of Wales Lodge.  The esteem in which he was held was shown by the numbers who from far and near, attended to pay their tribute to his memory.

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

At Napanee, on Monday July 31st, 1916, Dr. Courtland H. Wartman, aged 58 years

 

DR. C. H. WARTMAN -  It was with a great sense of loss that the community at large heard of the sudden death of Dr. Cortland Homer Wartman, on July 31st, at his home in Napanee.  Apparently in his usual health until a week previous, his passing was unexpected and deeply regretted.

The deceased was the 7th son of Peter Wartman and Rhoda Shibley, and was born at Glenvale, Kingston Township, August 21st, 1858.  Just thirty-three years ago he married Miss Emma Leonard, daughter of John A. Leonard, Esq.  Receiving his certificate from Sydenham High School, he taught in the home community, going from there to Iowa as Principal of the State Industrial School for boys, which position he held for six years, his wife being Musical Instructress.  He resigned this position to study dentistry, and after graduation, he practised in Napanee with his brother, and after Dr. C. D. Wartman’s death, continued the office alone, completing twenty-five years.  He was the last of ten children, seven sons and three daughters.

His great grandfather was Captain Grass, who piloted the U.E.L. contingent up the river to what is now Kingston.  Another great grandfather came with his family from the Susquehanna Valley, following the Revolutionary War, and they were related to Laura Secord.  With such an ancestry, it is not a surprise that the two sons of Dr. Wartman, are in khaki, Clarence in France and Leonard at Barriefield.

For twenty-three years he was Superintendent of Trinity Methodist Sunday School, and was intimately associated with every department of Church work.  Quiet and unassuming he did not fill as large a place in the public eye as a man who forces himself, but an exceptionally large circle of friends experience a deep loss in his passing.  Expressions of regret and sympathy from Church Boards and the School Board, of which he was a member, show the esteem in which he was held by the men with whom he worked.

OBITUARY -

John Wartman -

The sudden death of Mr. Wartman on Tuesday, April 9th, cast a gloom over the community and came as a great shock to the family and village of Newburgh.  He had to all appearances been in good health.

John Wartman, the son of Secord Wartman and Hester Ann Huffman, of U.E.L. descent was born in Camden, near Wesley Church and lived in that neighborhood until 1923, when he moved into the Village of Newburgh.  Early in life he united with the Methodist Church at Wesley, of which church he was a consistent member, holding many responsible positions on the Official Board.  On his removal to Newburgh he was made a member of the Trustee Board of the United church.  He was faithful in attendance at all the services of the church, the prayer meetings, the Sunday School, in which he took great interest.  He was a strong advocate of prohibition and interested in everything which would better the social and moral conditions of the community.  In 1907 he married Miss Lilah Buck, of Kepler, who predeceased him ten years ago.  One daughter, Miss H. Marguerite was left to mourn the loss of her mother.  In 1921, he married Miss H. Alma Johnston, of Kepler, who with the daughter mourn the loss of a loving father and kind husband.  There were eight children in the Secord Wartman family, and this death is the first break of the eight who grew up to manhood and womanhood.  the surviving brothers and sisters are M. Cole Wartman, Mrs. Sol. Clancy, of Wesley;  Mrs. W. M. Allen, Yarker;  Mrs. C. N. Shorey, Cleveland, O.;  Miss Amanda, of Sacramento Cal. and Mrs. Jas. Paul, Newburgh.  The funeral services were held at his late residence, Newburgh, on Thursday, April 11th.  A very large gathering testified to the high esteem of the community to the deceased and the beautiful flowers were an expression of the very sincere sympathy from the many friends and several organizations for the widow, daughter and family.  The service was conducted by the Pastor, Rev. T. H. P. Anderson, assisted by the Rev. A. H. Hoare, a former Pastor,.  His departure was sudden, but “To be with Christ is far better.”

Washburn

Ebenezer

 

At Hallowell, on Sunday, the 12th November, Ebenezer Washburn, Esq., aged 70 years, 7 months, and 4 days, universally regretted by a numerous family and acquaintance.

He was born in the province (now State) of Massachusetts, on 8th April, 1756, and joined the Royal standard shortly after the commencement of hostilities between the colonies and Great Britain, under which he continued during the remainder of the revolutionary struggle.

After the peace he came to his District, as one of the first settlers, since which time he has been one of our most active, industrious and enterprising inhabitants; and in the mercantile transactions in which he has engaged, was generally characterised for assiduity, punctuality, and integrity. In him was fully exemplified the summit of human virtue so simply yet elegantly described by the poet, "An honest man's the noblest work of God."

In public life, he filled the offices of Justice of the Peace, and member of Parliament in two different sessions, to the honor of himself and the benefit and satisfaction of the public.

In private life he was social, affectionate, and friendly.

The disease which terminated his existence was dropsy, under which he laboured for nearly the last ten years of his life. During the last eighteen months he underwent the operation of tapping* ten times, without ever repining or murmuring at the will of Divine Providence.

He was perfectly conscious of his approaching dissolution, and met it with that fortitude and resignation which could only arise from the prospect of a happy futurity; knowing that if his earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, he had a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

THE LATE J. J. WATSON - Funeral at Adolphustown - His warm personal friends.
The many friends in the county of Lennox and elsewhere were pained to learn of the death of J. J. Watson, of Adolphustown on Sept. 24, and many gathered from the immediate vicinity, Picton, Napanee and elsewhere on Saturday last to pay their final respects to the memory of one who was born and had lived three quarters of a century within their midst, earning the respect and esteem of all with whom he came in contact. In his earlier days he was the schoolmate of Sir John A. Macdonald in the village school, one whose friendship remained steadfast for half a century, and whom he now follows by a few months to his final rest. The premier frequently, with Lady Macdonald, visited Mr. Watson in his elegant home.
The funeral services were conducted by the rector of St. Alban's church, Rev. R. S. Forneri, assisted by Rev. Mr. Green of Belleville, who preached an appropriate and instructive sermon from Mathew xxiv-44: 'Therefore be ye also ready.' This was the first funeral service held in the beautiful edifice, recently completed. Mr. Watson gave the site as well as a good contribution, for the erection of the building. Mrs. Watson, a sister of Parker Allen, now in his eighty-third year, the oldest man in the township, and their eldest daughter, Mrs. Duffett, are the only surviving members of the family. The deceased was a very successful businessman, and took an active part in municipal matters in former years. He was a member of the county council for several years and was warden of the county. He was a leading Conservative and for a time was president of the liberal conservative association. His mercantile and farming business always commanded his close attention and oversight, and as a consequence he amassed considerable wealth.

He was carried to his final resting place adjoining his late residence by the following pall bearers who were among his warmest personal friends; Cat. Jas. Chalmers, R.P. Young, Elisha Ruttan, Thomas Trumpour, Peter D. Davis and Joseph B. Allison. The floral wreaths and crosses covering the beautiful casket were neatly arranged. In the centre was a sickle of wax flowers encircling two small sheaves of ripened wheat emblematic of the harvest of Father Time.

 

Died at his residence, Adolphustown, on September 24th 1891, John Joseph Watson, aged 75 years, 7 months.  Funeral services on Saturday afternoon, September 26th at 2.00 o’clock at St. Alban’s Church, Adolphustown.   [Memorial Card]

OBITUARIES - PETER D. WEESE

One of the best known and most highly esteemed residents of the Township of Ernesttown, passed away at his home, near Bath on Tuesday morning, March 14th, 1939.  The funeral service was held on Thursday afternoon at Bath United Church, and was conducted by Rev. G. T. McKenzie.

Mr. Weese, who was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Weese, had been in failing health for some time and his many friends were sorry to hear of his death.  He died on the farm where he had lived for the past 55 years.  The deceased, who was a Conservative in politics, served in the Council for a period of eight years, and was a member of the Maple Leaf Masonic Lodge, Bath.  The funeral which was largely attended, was in charge of that Order.

His wife, who, before her marriage, was Miss Annie McIlwaine, of Selby, predeceased him 20 years ago and his only daughter, Mrs. T. D. Creighton, 10 years ago. 

Mr. Weese was the last surviving member of a family of five.  His brother, Sam, met with a tragic death at Collin’s Bay 43 years ago.  Stewart, another brother, passed away at his residence near Selby seven years ago.  Mrs. George Sexsmith, of Napanee, a sister, passed away two days after her brother Stewart.  Mrs. Robert Martin, of Wesley, another sister, passed away three years ago.

The late Mr. Weese is survived by one son, Stewart, with whom he resided, and five grandchildren, Herbert, Annie and Dorothy Weese, also J.P., and Duncan Creighton.

STEPHEN WEESE -  Stephen Weese died at his residence, 3d Con. Camden, near Strathcona village, Dec 31st 1907 aged 70 years, 7 months and 12 days.  He was a son of Samuel Weese, and Susanna Sweet, U.E.L. people who came to this county from the states.  They settled in Richmond, where the subject of this sketch grew to manhood.  When a young man, Mr. Weese purchased the farm where he died.  About a year after coming to Camden he married Miss Eliza Lockridge, which was 48 years ago.  Five children were born to them, three sons and two daughters.  The oldest son, Samuel was killed at Collins Bay crossing by the cars about eleven years ago, which was a terrible shock to the family as well as to the whole community.  The remaining children are Mrs. Martin of Camden, Mrs. G. S. Sexsmith of Richmond, and Peter, of Bath and Stewart, on the homestead.  Mrs. Weese also survives him.  For 13 years, Mrs. Weese occupied seats in the township and County Council, where his upright dealing won the respect and confidence of all.  About 8 months ago, Mr. Weese found he was afflicted with cancer.  Although everything that could be done was done without avail the terrible disease made steady progress until Dec 31st 1907 when death put a period to his sufferings.  He was the friend of all;  everyone who went to him for help or advice was never disappointed.  We may well say with one of old, “Where shall we find the like again?”  He had no fear of death and spoke of “going home.”  Rev. C. L. Thompson, his pastor, visited him frequently, at the last administered the Sacrament of the  Lord’s Supper.  The funeral took place on Thursday under the auspices of the Masonic Order at Newburgh Methodist Church.  The funeral cortage was the largest seen in these parts for years.  The remains were deposited in Newburgh vault.

Beyond the flight of time,

Beyond this vale of death

There surely is some blessed clime

Whence life is not a breath

Nor life’s affection transcient fire

Whose sparks fly upward to expire.

McLellan and removed to Kingston General Hospital by ambulance with undetermined injuries.

According to Dr. F. C. Wilson, coroner, no inquest will be held.

EMMA WESTON - Wife of Mr. Peter Weston, on the city of London, passed away to the better world on the 3rd day of August last, in the 59th year of her age.  She was born in Camberwell, London, Eng., but the greater part of her life was spent in Canada.  At a very early age she embraced the religion of Jesus Christ as a personal privilege and experience.  concerning her conversion, she never doubted, and her piety was of that decided type that makes itself known in the outward life.  She at once became connected with the Wesleyan Methodist Church, and was for several years a  teacher in the old Adelaide Street school, Toronto. She afterwards, with her husband, became united with the Methodist New Connexion Church.  In the course of time her residence was changed to London, and after the union of the two Churches in 1874, she became a member of the Queen’s Avenue Church in that city.  Here she resumed her active labors for Christ.  She remained a valued and efficient teacher in the Sunday-school until the time of her death.  She was also a faithful attendant at class-meeting, and greatly enjoyed the benefits arising from that time-honored means of spiritual communion.  But it was in connection with the public charities of the city that her religious life most made itself felt.  For many years she was a working member of the Woman’s Christian Association, and as chairwoman of the Public Relief Committee her services were simply invaluable.  She was eminently fitted for the position by her keen perception and large experience, and was ever ready to go out in all kinds of weather and traverse all parts of the city to serve the poor and needy.  It will not be easy to fill her place.  She was ardently attached to Methodism, and for years her house was considered the minister’s home.  Her last illness was prolonged and severe. The greater part of the past winter was spent at her brother’s in New York, in the hope of obtaining some relief from the disease that was wasting her strength.  After her return to London, however, her health continued to decline, until it became evident to all that her days were numbered. She possessed her soul in patience, and from the first was fully resigned to her heavenly Father’s will.  Her faith in Christ continued unshaken.  Her hope of the better world was bright and strong.  Many expressions came from her lips that were full of comfort to her sorrowing friends.  Her family gathered about her, some of them coming from a distance and received her parting words of counsel and affection, and then she quietly awaited the Lord’s summons to come up higher.  Of her it may well be said, “She rests from her labors, and her works do follow her.”  [signed] D.G.S.

OBITUARY - Florence Robertson White, wife of Charles DeWitt White, Boston, Mass., and only child of Mrs. Helen A. Robertson, Providence, R.I., died on July 13th 1907, at the early age of 26 years. She was married to Charles DeWitt White on January 6th, 1904. On Aug 2d 1906, a son was born to them. In February last the baby contracted scarlet fever. Anxious for the life of her darling baby boy, she took no thought for herself. With good medical treatment and care the baby got over the fever, and when the doctor pronounced him out of danger, the mother collapsed and went to bed. Her whole nervous system broke down and gave way. She made all her plans for her funeral even to the minutest detail, but recovered sufficiently however, to be able to be up again and go out driving, but was taken down again the latter part of June, and sank very fast into a decline, despite all that the best of medical treatment and loving care could do to save her. She was fully resigned to go and left every assurance of a glad and glorious resurrection. After death the remains were taken to her grandmother's home, the late Mrs. Elizabeth A. Diamond, Providence, R.I. where the funeral was held.

DEATH’S HARVEST – WM. H. WILKISON, County Judge, Dies Suddenly in his Bathroom -  No greater shock was ever experienced by our citizens as a whole than the announcement made on Wednesday morning that His Honor Judge Wilkison had been found dead while in the act of taking his usual morning plunge in a bath of cold water.  Could it be possible that the handsome, genial, whole souled gentleman who was about as usual the day before, in the best of health and spirits, would never again on earth exchange his kindly greetings with our citizens, young and old, rich and poor?  The sad fact is alas too true, and it is a fact also that no one will be more missed from our town.  There is little to tell as to his death.  It was his habit to take a cold bath on rising in the morning, and on Wednesday it was noticed that he remained longer than usual in the bath room, detaining breakfast.  Wondering what was the trouble, Mrs. Wilkison sent the man to find out. He knocked at the door and receiving no answer, opened it and to his horror found the Judge dead in the tub.  The sudden shock of the cold plunge is supposed to have caused heart failure.  The distressing  scene is too pathetic to dwell on.  In apparently the vigor of matured manhood, with the laurels of a well spent life earned and being enjoyed, he is cut off without a moment’s warning. It will be well for us all however, if when called we can show such a blameless life and are able to appear before our Maker with as unblemished a character as the late Wm. H. Wilkison possessed – all that any man can take with him out of this world.  Judge Wilkison was born in the City of Kingston, Nov. 3d 1838, and was the son of the late William Wilkison, of Kingston, and formerly of Belfast, Ireland.  He was educated at the old Grammar School in Kingston, through which many illustrious Canadians passed.  In 1861, he was called to the bar, and came to Napanee to practice.  From September, 1864, till 1869 he held the office of county crown attorney and clerk of the peace for the Counties of Lennox and Addington, and had worked up a large and lucrative law practice.  On May 28th 1869, he received the appointment of Judge for this county, and this position he has honourably and successfully filled ever since.  The Judge was married to Isabella Allan, eldest daughter of the late Wm. Allan Geddes, barrister, Kingston, in 1863, who is left to mourn the loss of a loving husband and a model man in every respect.  Deceased was a member of the Anglican church, and took a deep interest in the home church as well as in the welfare of the church in general.  He was for years a lay delegate to the Synod, and was one of its prominent members.  The Judge was deeply interested in works of mercy and was yearly instrumental in gaining a liberal grant from the County council to the Kingston General Hospital, of which he was a governor.  Out of respect for deceased the flags are flying at half mast on the Town Hall and court House.  The funeral service will be held today at 10:45 o’clock at St. Mary Magdalene’s church and thence by special B. of Q. train detailed through the courtesy of his life long friend, Mr. E. W. Rathbun, to Kingston, where the remains will be placed in the vault at Cataraqui, to be later interred in the family plot there. The pall bearers were the members of the local bar: - D. H. Preston, K. C.., H. M. Deroche, K. C., W. S. Herrington, K. C., John English, J. H. Madden, W. G. Wilson, U. M. Wilson, W. H. Perry , G. F. Ruttan and T. B. German.  The remains will be taken to the church at 10 o’clock, where the many friends will be given an opportunity of taking a last look at the deceased.  The service will be held in the church at 10:45 and the special train will leave the station at 11:15 a.m.  Deceased is laid out in his judicial robes.  The pall-bearers will also wear their legal gowns.  The body will arrive in Kingston at 1:15 and the funeral will take place from the train.  It is likely the Kingston Bar Association and the Synod of the Diocese of Ontario will be represented at the funeral.

Obituary - John Williams - On Sunday morning, 4th April, John Williams, a very old and esteemed resident of Bath, passed peacefully to his rest, having attained the ripe age of 85 years and 8 months. He had been ailing for many weeks, his exceptionally robust constitution resisting the inroads of disease while it could, but at last giving way under the weight of years. Mr. Williams was born in Adolphustown on the 27th August, 1812, and 58 years ago moved to Bath where he resided until the day of his death, following the blacksmith's trade, in which, being an expert workman and most industrious, he was always successful. Of his large and respectable family of children - twelve in all - six sons and three daughters survive him, five of whom, viz., Knox, Solomon, Samuel, Patience and Samantha were present at the funeral. In 1891, his wife, a most exemplary Christian woman, was called away, since which he and his faithful daughter, Patience have lived together in retirement. In early life, a member of the Society of Friends, he subsequently left them and frequently they worshiped at the Presbyterians, but after the death of his wife he conformed to the English Church, was baptised by the Rev. M. Baker, and on Trinity Sunday, 31st May last received confirmation at the hands of His Grace Archbishop Lewis. The funeral took place at St. John's church on Tuesday afternoon and was attended by a large number of the friends of the esteemed family, and the remains were laid to rest besides those of his late beloved partner in life in the family plot where lie also those of two of the three children who preceded him to the grave. A singular coincidence in connection with his death may be mentioned here. Just 50 years ago, a daughter died in the same month of the  year, April, on the same day of the month, 4th,  the same day of the week, Sunday, and at the same hour, 7 o'clock in the morning. Mr. Williams' illness was of such a nature that it was necessary he should be watched and tended night and day for weeks without cessation until the end came, and to do this the assistance of the neighbors had to be called in, and this assistance was given with such cheerful alacrity and good will that Miss Williams desires that public expression be given of her thanks in this sketch to the many friends who so kindly came to her aid in the hour of need.

Funeral of Mrs. C. S. Wilson

On Thursday, April 29th, a simple but impressive service was held in the Methodist church here, a number of friends having gathered to show respect and affection for the late Mrs. Charles S. Wilson, who for many years was a resident of the town. Rev. Dr. Alfred Brown conducted the service, offering prayer after the singing of “Abide With Me: by the congregation, and reading the twenty-third Psalm and selections from John XIV.  The ladies quartet then rendered “Nearer My God To Thee”, and Rev. Dr. S. J. Shorey gave a brief but effective address wherein he emphasized nature’s answer to the question, “If a man die, shall he live again?”  An illustration used was that of the migratory bird which winging its far flight from the only land it has known, finds a home awaiting it.  Surely God who provides satisfaction for the bird in its quest, will not deny man the fulfillment of his desire, hope and trust.  That the conditions of the future life are not more fully revealed to us, the speaker affirmed was owning to our present undeveloped state which made it impossible for us to receive a more perfect revelation. Dr. Shorey spoke feelingly of the affectionate esteem in which he with many others hold the memory of Mrs. Wilson and referred to the spirit of hospitality which pervaded her home.  “Safe in the arms of Jesus” was sung at the close of the sermon.  Among near relatives present were Mrs. Wilson’s daughter Mrs. Louella Standish of Toronto and nephews, Mr. Fred Wilson of Belleville and Mr. H. W. Bedell, Picton, Mrs. Stephen Noxon of Ingersoll and daughter Miss Marion, who, intending to be present had come as far as Toronto, were prevented from continuing the journey by Mrs. Noxon’s illness.  Another daughter, Mrs. May C. Eaton resides in France.  The Y’s in whose work Mrs. Wilson has always taken a peculiar interest were in attendance, being seated near the flower laden casket.

Pallbearers were Messrs. Fred Wilson, Charles Wilson, H. C. McMullen, H. B. Bristol, C. B. Allison and Jas. H. Porte.  Interment took place in the family plot at Glenwood.

OBITUARY – We regret to chronicle the death of Miss Clara M. Wilson, eldest daughter of Jas. C. Wilson, Esq., of Glenora.  It is well known to most people of this community that during the past winter Miss Wilson was afflicted with an attack of small pox in its most malignant form.  By the aid of very skilful medical treatment and most careful nursing she was enabled to recover partially, but with a constitution thoroughly impaired by the virulence and prolonged nature of the disease.  A brief visit to Montreal in consultation of medical advice gave little hopes of her ultimate recovery, and she retired to Toronto, to the residence of her uncle, Dr. Meachain, for change of air and treatment.  Here she gradually weakened and on Saturday, the 15th inst., her spirit passed peacefully away.  Her remains were brought to Picton, on Monday last, and interred in Glenwood cemetery in the presence of a large number of sympathizing friends.  Miss Wilson was educated at Hamilton Ladies’ College, of which institution she was one of the most gifted and brilliant alumni.  In addition to the general subjects of a liberal education she gave special attention to the fine Arts and many specimens from her brush and pencil remain to show how exquisite was the taste and how deft the touch with which her colors were made to glow into life and beauty on the canvas.  It was not, however, in the domain of the polite accomplishments alone, that Miss Wilson exercised her wealth of talent and her leisure hours. She was an unobtrusive but very effectual worker in the Christian Church, and the sphere of useful --- varied duties she managed to bring about her, and in which she took such keen delight will now be left to the hands of others.  Her life was one of much promise, full of sweetness and light and calm faith, and her death one of the glories of the cross. She seemed to realize that life is real, life is earnest, and though cut down in its very morning she had done much to widen her experience and lift her to a higher plane of enjoyment.  We are sure that her parents and relatives have the sincere condolence of the public in their bereavement.

Wilson,

David (Rev.)

 

The Methodist church has lost one of its oldest and well known ministers in the death of the Rev. David Wilson, which took place at his residence, North Fredericksburgh, on Tuesday morning last. Though in the eighty-fourth year of his age, and the fifty-fifth of his Christian ministry, he retained to the last his vigor, mental and physical, to a wonderful degree. Up to the day of his death his mind and memory remained clear and undimmed, and his physical strength was remarkable for one of his years. Until three or four weeks ago he continued active, and his genial face and cordial greeting were familiar on our streets, as at almost any time for the past half century. His strength began then to give way, but it was only for a couple of weeks he was confined to his room. Even then his mind continued clear and his voice strong as before sickness. He suffered little pain. It might be said of him as of the aged Charles Wesley, simply that "the weary wheels of life stood still."


The Rev. David Wilson has been so well know in all these counties for the past two generations that we need say little of him. Our gray-headed readers remember first hearing him preach when they were young boys and some remark that seldom has a year occurred since when they have not heard him. He was a man of clear mind, extensive reading, of strong and decided views of his own on nearly every question, religious and political, but withal so genial and kindly that his friends could be counted by thousands, including all sects and parties.

Five years ago THE BEAVER wrote of him as follows: 'The Rev. David Wilson is now the oldest and best known Methodist minister in the counties. He is now in his jubilee year as a Methodist minister, and it is somewhat singular that his first sermon from a text was preached from the same pulpit in the early winter of 1845 (the Old Park's church, on Hay Bay, now torn down). Two or three times he was its regular 'pulpit supply', the 'circuit preacher', twice as 'Presiding Elder of the district', in the old days of Episcopal Methodist regime, and now for years past as 'Father Wilson' an old and much respected 'superannuate', always available and ready, always practical and efficient. We believe that no other minister of any other church whatever in the county has so long stood before the people, has preached so many sermons in so many places, throughout the boundaries, and whose face has become so familiar to three generations, and who has commanded and retained the confidence and respect of all, as our venerable friend.'
Ever since that and right up to the days of his last illness he has continued to preach and work in behalf of his Master's cause.

HIS OWN RECORD

There lies before us a letter prepared by Mr. Wilson himself, written for an old friend, nearly tow years ago, which gives in his own words, a brief record of his ministerial work.
'Dear Mr. Casey: I send you the following, as you requested, concerning myself and work in the church. Born in the year 1816 in Scotland, and educated there. Left Scotland for America June, 1840; arrived in Ogdensburg, St. Lawrence county, New York, after being on the voyage for about seven weeks. There were no steamers running at that time. Came to Canada in 1842. Entered the Methodist Episcopal church at the Annual Conference held at Northport, Sept. 10th  1845, on probation for the ministry. Sent to labor with Rev. George D. Greenleaf, as junior preacher on the Bay of Quinte Circuit, which then took in the following townships, viz, North and South Fredericksburgh, Bath and Ernesttown. 'Served in the active work for thirty-seven years; health beginning to fail, I asked a superannuated relation and still continue in that relation, assisting the ministers in the active work as health will permit.
'We had on the Bay Circuit at that time George Sills and Daniel Unger, ordained Local Elders. Among the trusted laymen were the Forshees, Parkses, Bogarts, Coles, Clarks, Andersons, Dollars, Detlors, Frasers, Smiths, Gibbards and many others that I might name, most of whom have left this for the better world above. They were grand men.
'While Presiding Elder on the Napanee district I travelled over the following counties: Prince Edward, Lennox and Addington, and a part of Hastings. You will see I have had a pretty active life and I have been wonderfully preserved, with fairly good health. I may say that when I came on the Bay Circuit we had only one church, on the work; built chiefly by the brothers Parks, assisted by others. Make of his what you think best. If it will assist you in your work I will be glad.

 Your sincere friend and well wisher,

DAVID WILSON

The venerable Rev. James Gardner, D. D., of Belleville, also well know in these counties, writes us a very interesting letter in regard to Mr. Wilson's work and their associations. We much regret there is not now space at our disposal to use it. Dr. Gardner was Mr. Wilson's senior in the ministry by a year or two, and so is the Rev. Thomas Wester, D. D., of Newbury, Ont. These are the only two left of all his early associates in the church.
Mr. Wilson married Miss Jane Forshee, a daughter of Jas. Forshee, one of the early pioneers of Fredericksburgh. She predeceased him over twenty years. Their surviving children are all well know and influential men, the Rev. James Wilson, M. A., now of Oshawa, and formerly pastor of the Western church here; Rev. W. D. P. Wilson, of Stirling, and our well known neighbor, Frank Wilson Esq., who resides on the old homestead in North Fredericksburgh.
The venerable Rev. Dr. James Gardner writes: 'Rev. David Wilson was highly esteemed by all his brethren, in all the relations of the church work. His name and influence are cherished; he was eminently fruitful in his ministry. He was my trusted, true and faithful brother in the gospel. You may speak freely and strongly about our mutual friend, David Wilson.
We may as well here give the ministerial record of the oldest and most venerable of the Methodist ministers now living:

Rev. Thomas Webster, D. D. Newbury, entered the work in 1833.

Rev. George Abbs, Grimsby, 1840.

Rev. James Gardner, D. D., Belleville, 1841.

Rev. Ephraim B. Harper, D. D., Barrie, 1841.

Rev. George Young, D. D., Toronto, 1841.

Rev. Francis Coleman, Hamilton, as early as 1840.

These are all Superannuated old men now. They all well served their day and generation.

OBITUARY - Mr. L. E. Wilson

That death is no respector of age is plainly seen in the way it entered the home of L. E. Wilson, on Monday, June 19th, 1922, and claimed for its victim dearly loved Ethelbert, the sunshine of that home.  By the death of Mr. Wilson, not only his wife is greatly bereaved, but also his relatives and innumerable friends,.  He was not only a loving and devoted husband, but a Christian abounding in good works and a model of what a husband should be.

Although for several years he had been in failing health, the last nine months being very trying, despite all that loving hands and medical skill could do to prolong his earthly flight he passed peacefully into the arms of his loving Saviour with a perfect resignation to God’s will.  His sufferings were very intense, yet never a murmur, but always a smile and cheery word for all.  Truly it can be said, “Patient through suffering:.  It seems so hard to see a sweet young life like Ethelbert’s cut off in the prime, but let us say  in our deep  sorrow, “Thy will be done.”  He has been called to a higher service,  called to be forever with the Lord whom he loved and delighted to serve.  We sorrow not for him, but for those who have been left behind - for his broken-hearted wife and sister, Mrs. W. A. Ramsay.

His funeral, which was largely attended, took place on Wednesday, June 21st, at Camden V. Presbyterian Church, it being under the Masonic Order.  His Pastor, Rev. E. B. Cooke, assisted by a former Pastor, Rev. J. A. McLean, spoke very brief and suitable words of comfort;  a solo which was beautifully rendered by Mrs. Cooke,  “Sometime We’ll Understand”, being very appropriate, as the deceased was often heard to express those words.

The numerous floral tributes betokened the sympathy of his many friends.

A sad event occurred when Nathaniel Wilson passed out from our midst on Thursday, Dec. 15th, after an illness lasting only eight days.  Mr. Wilson was born in the township of Sheffield in 1846.  About six years ago he came to Ernestown, purchasing a farm, and by the persistent indefatigable industry which characterized the man, brought it to its present high state of cultivation.  Possessing great vitality and an iron constitution, Mr. Wilson has scarcely a day’s illness in his life until he was attacked by pneumonia on Wednesday, Dec 7th.  In spite of the best medical skill and careful nursing he sank rapidly and expired on the evening of the 15th, in the fifty-eighth year of his age.  Mr. Wilson belonged to that sturdy yeomanry class who have so materially helped to build up our country and his death will be a distinct loss.  By his neighbourly qualities he gained the good will and respect of those about him.  On Sunday morning, Dec. 18th, a large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends assembled for the memorial service in the Switzerville church after which the corpse was conveyed to the Napanee vault.  A widow and three children are left behind, who in their great loss will have the sincere and general sympathy of the neighborhood.

Yesterday the silent messenger visited two homes in Kingston and carried off venerable ladies enjoying the affection of their families and the esteem of a wide circle of friends. Mrs. Deacon and Mrs. Wilson had lived in Kingston for over half a century, had worshiped throughout in the same church, and each died in the homes of the children and grandchildren, having survived their husbands. They were motherly women, in the true sense devoted to their families, kindly and sympathetic towards friends, and a strength and example in the circles in which they moved:

Mrs. Wilson was born in Adolphustown in 1810, being a daughter of Samuel and Cynthia Casey; moved to Kingston in 1832 when married to Thomas Wilson, who became an active and prominent citizen and held a high place for over forty years. She was granddaughter of Willet Casey, a leading United Empire Loyalist. Mrs. Wilson had great activity and her life was of uncommon usefulness. She was ever zealous and sacrificing for those about her, and grateful tears will be shed over her removal. She was indeed a good wife and mother. In her last illness, which was painful and lingering, remarkable spirit and vitality were shown, but her end was resigned and peaceful. Dr. Wilson, of Montreal, Mrs. Malloch and Mrs. Wilson of Kingston are surviving members of her family.

WILLIAM A.

Joseph Scott, of the New England Conference, he went out soon after his conversion and held cottage prayer-meetings.  About forty-five years ago he went to reside in the United States, where he lived until he removed to Ontario four years ago.  Brother Wilson was always an active Christian.  He often visited his friends and neighbors, inquiring of them how their souls prospered.  He accompanied the writer on several occasions in making pastoral calls, and manifested a deep interest in the spiritual welfare of  the people.  In the prayer-meeting his advice was always sound, and his testimony was always clear.   While he loved all God’s people he felt a special attachment for the Methodist Church, of which he remained a consistent member until his death.  He died at his home in Greenway, Ont., June 10, 1886, aged sixty-three years.  His end was peace.  [signed]  Joseph Deacon

It was with the deepest regret that the many friends learned of the death of Nyeta beloved wife of E. P. Windover, of Sarnia.

Less than a year and a half ago she left Napanee with the best wishes of a host of friends.  By her kind and cheerful disposition she had endeared herself to all with whom she was in any way associated.  Her life was full of active work, of service to God, and kindly thoughts and deeds to others.  She was a member of Trinity Church and Ready Helpers Class, Napanee, and the Albert Bible Class of Divine Street Methodist Church, Sarnia.

She leaves to mourn the loss of herself and baby girl, whose wee form rests upon the mother’s arm in the casket, a devoted husband, a loving mother and an only sister.

Exley to Trinity Church, where the service was conducted by Rev. W. R. Tanton, Pastor of Trinity Church, and Rev. T. H. P.

DESECRATING THE GRAVE

THE BODY OF AN OLD LADY STOLEN FROM THE CEMETERY

TORONTO, Ontario, Feb. 14. - On Saturday last, Mrs. Peter Woodcock, of North Fredericksburgh, mother of the Rev. Eli Gilbert and Nelson Woodcock, died at the advanced age of 94 years and 11 months.  Her remains were buried on Sunday last in the cemetery adjoining Bethany Church, and on Monday night the body was stolen.  Immediately upon the desecration being discovered every endeavor was put forth by the family to discover the thieves but as yet no trace of the remains has been obtained.  Monday evening a gentleman saw two men in the vicinity of the burying ground, their horse being tied to the fence.  it is supposed these parties committed the deed.  One of the sons of the deceased lady went to Kingston on Wednesday to search the medical college, but without success.  The family feel very badly over the matter.

It is stated that the body of Alexander Babcock, a pauper who died recently in jail, has been stolen from the Napanee Cemetery, and rumors are afloat regarding similar depredations at other burial grounds in the neighborhood.  The general belief is that the desecration is the work of American students, whose operations are facilitated by the ease with which they can cross the river in the Winter.

OBITUARY - Mrs. Volney Woods

One of the saddest deaths recorded her in some time, occurred at three o’clock Friday morning, Jan. 11th, 1929, when Marjorie C. Meyers, beloved wife of Mr. Volney Woods, of Roblin, passed away to the Great Beyond.

The deceased, who was 28 years of age, contracted a severe cold a few weeks ago, which later developed into pneumonia.  During the past week she was attended by three nurses, and everything that human agency could do to thwart the dread disease was done, but of no avail.

The late Mrs. Woods was the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Meyers, and was born at Hawley, which is about seven miles from Napanee.

A few years ago her parents, disposing of their farm, came to Napanee to reside, and shortly after the deceased went to New York to train for a nurse.  After graduating she returned later to Napanee, where she followed her chosen profession with much success until her marriage to Mr. Woods, a few years ago.  Since her marriage, she, with her husband, resided in Roblin.

Her death has cast a gloom over the whole community, she being full of life and beloved by a wide circle of friends.  She was a member of Napanee Chapter, No. 151, Order of the Eastern Star and was always ready to assist in every way the social activities of the Order.

Besides her bereaved husband and parents, she leaves to mourn her loss an only sister, Agnes, to whom the sympathy of the entire community is extended.

The funeral was held on Sunday afternoon, at the home of the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Meyers, Bridge street.  Although the funeral was of a private nature the home was filled with relatives and friends from Napanee, Hawley, and Roblin.  About twenty members from Napanee Chapter, No. 151, Order of the Eastern Star, were present.  A very appropriate and feeling eulogy was given by Rev. A. H. Oliver, of the Roblin United Church.  The floral tributes were beautiful, representing the relatives, friends and fraternal societies.  Following the service the cortege proceeded to Riverview cemetery, where the interment took place.

GEORGE A. WRIGHT - Napanee, Jan 21 (Special) - George A. Wright passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ralph Sills, Sandhurst, on Sunday at the age of 91 years. Mr. Wright, who had practically never known a sick day, was taken ill just a few days ago. He was a native of this county, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Solomon Wright, and was one of a family of eight, of whom there are four brothers living. He had resided in the Sandhurst district ever since a young man, was a successful farmer all his life, and was a staunch Liberal. The four brothers who survive are Charles of Napanee, who, with Mrs. Wright, observed their golden wedding anniversary the latter part of December; John of Toronto, William of Picton and Edward of Conway. All have reached the three and four score mark. Mrs. Wright passed away some years ago and a family of three survive - Robert of Conway, Mrs. George Roddick and Mrs. Ralph Sills of Sandhurst.

 

THE LATE GEO. D. WRIGHT - Mr. George D. Wright of Sandhurst, who had almost reached his 91st  birthday, passed away on Sunday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ralph Sills, after an illness of about a week. On March 3rd  of last year, Mr. Wright celebrated his ninetieth birthday. On that day the occasion was marked by a family dinner attended by Mr. Wright's children and grandchildren. Throughout his long life, Mr. Wright had been one of the most outstanding residents of the community. He came from fine English stock, pioneers in the county and had worthily carried on the tradition of his race. In his latter days he had enjoyed excellent health as in his youth. He maintained a keen interest in public affairs and derived a great deal of pleasure from life. Mr. Wright was the eldest of five sons of the late Solomon Wright, a retired English officer, who first settled in Prince Edward County and later came to Lennox County and settled with four miles of the place where Mr. Wright later made his home. For over sixty years Mr. Wright lived on the farm where he died. During his long life he saw many changes, but had kept well abreast of the times. For twenty five years he had lived a retired life and since the death of his wife, formerly Miss Neilson, about nine years ago, had lived with Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Sills. He is survived by three children, Robert Wright, Mrs. Roddick and Mrs. Sills, all of whom live near Sandhurst. Four brothers also survive; they are John of Toronto, aged 87, William, of Picton, aged 85; Charles, of Napanee, aged 82 and Edward at Adolphustown, aged 74 years. The funeral was held on Tuesday afternoon, at his late residence.

OBITUARY - On Tuesday, December 2nd , 1919, there passed away at Conway, Helen Kathleen Wright, daughter of the late Mrs. Wright and Mr. Ed. Wright, in her  20th  year. For some time past her health had not been of the best, but her natural cheerfulness and buoyant disposition forbade the thought of so early a termination of so youthful a career. As playmate and companion she was full of the joy and vivacity of youth. As a student her life was promising indeed, having obtained Matriculation and Teacher's certificate during the three years spent in Napanee High School. Upon her graduating from High School, through the sudden death of her mother, she immediately assumed the duties and responsibilities of home life, comforting and consoling a bereaved father and loved ones. Her death now comes as an additional grief and loss, the harder to sustain because of the larger place she filled in the life of the home. Respected and admired by her many friends and acquaintances, she will be greatly missed, but the fragrance of her memory will live through the coming years. The lesson of her life of cheerfulness and optimism will not be lost upon those whose privilege it was to know her. The funeral service was held on Thursday, Dec. 4th  at the residence of her father at Conway. The service was conducted by her pastor, Rev. H. P. L. Seymour, and Mrs. Wilfred Haight sang very appropriately "A Perfect Day". The interment took place in the family plot Glenwood cemetery, Picton.

Died - Wright - At North (sic) Fredericksburgh, on April 9th, Solomon Wright, aged 82 years.

 

Solomon Wright, Fredericksburgh, father of John A. Wright, barrister, Picton, died on Wednesday last, aged 82 years.

 

Solomon Wright - Was born in North Marysburgh, April 6th 1808 and departed this life April 9th  1890 in South Fredericksburgh. When he was twelve years of age he removed to the latter place, where he resided the remainder of his life. He was married in September 1837 to Miss Azubah Ham, who still survives him. Together, they trod life's pathway, and were mutually helpful. Both were industrious and economical, and God blessed them with a large measure of prosperity. Brother Wright pursued the vocation of a farmer, and was successful beyond many. Everything he undertook seemed to prosper and the result was acknowledged as the gift of God. The turning point in his life's history occurred in 1845, in a revival service held in Adolphustown, conducted by the late Rev. Cyrus R. Allison. His conversion was a sound one, reaching both head and heart. He connected himself with the then Wesleyan Methodist Church, and continued in union with the Methodist body until his translation to the Church triumphant. The Church had place, office and work for a man of Solomon Wright's type, and sterling worth, and during his forty-five years connection with Methodism, he filled almost every official position his brethren could honor him with. His was not an emotional nature, but he was a man of unswerving and untiring devotion to duty. Anything he undertook for the Church, as for himself, he did punctually and thoroughly. The church where he worshipped at Conway, on the Adolphustown Circuit was largely brought to completion through his labors and contributions. He and his sons contributing in the neighborhood of $1000 towards its erection. He had six sons, who grew up to man's estate. One, Simon, a few years ago was called to be with God, leaving behind a sorrowing and devoted wife and a little family. Three are well-to-do farmers, son John, graduated in arts at Victoria College, and for a number of years has been engaged in the profession of law in the town of Picton. His two daughters are married. All gathered around their father's bedside in the closing days and hours of his earthly pilgrimage, save one, Mrs. Nelson, who was sojourning in Denver, Colorado, for her health. During the winter, Bro. Wright was seized with the prevailing disease, la grippe, and never rallied from its effects. He gradually weakened and wasted until the morning mentioned above, and God said, "It is enough. Come up higher". and "he was not, for God took him." By request, the writer, having known him for nearly twenty-three years, was called upon to preach his funeral sermon. The text was selected was from Philippians i.21. All felt that these words were his dying experience, and that dying was gain to Father Wright. Revs. J.C. Ash and H. I. Allen assisted in the service, and Bor. Ash bore testimony, at the close of the sermon, as to the worth and excellency of the deceased as a man and Christian. The large and representative gathering at his funeral testified as to the esteem in which he was held. His family mourn, but not without hope. We all miss him, but we shall meet again, and in the meantime calmly say, "Father, thy will be done."
