Edith Maude

(nee Glover)



On Wednesday afternoon, Jan 4, 1939, Mrs. Burtle Yeomans passed peacefully away.  Up to a few days before she died Mrs. Yeomans had gone about her household duties and appeared to be in her usual good health.

About three years ago, Mrs. Yeomans had undergone a very serious operation but had apparently recovered and enjoyed good health until a short time before her final illness.

Mrs. Yeomans took a deep interest in the life of the community, and as recently as the 5th of December last, read a paper before the local Women’s Institute. Her maiden name was Edith Maude Glover, daughter of the late Thomas and Agnes Glover, pioneers at Camden East, where Mr. Glover ran a saw mill about eighty years ago.

There were eleven children in the family of Thomas and Agnes Glover, seven boys and four girls, of whom the deceased was the youngest.  Richard, Jane Ann, Samuel, Herbert and Edith Maude are deceased.  Those still living are:  Agnes, Elginburg;  Robert John, Camden East;  Thomas James, Toronto;  Albert, Kingston;  Eliza May, Wilton; and William Ryerson Glover, Kingston.

Mrs. Yeomans leaves to mourn her loss her husband Burtle Yeomans, and a son, Hubert Glover Yeomans, sixteen years of age and a student of Newburg high school.  Mrs. Yeomans was graduated from the Newburgh High School at an early age and afterwards taught at Wesley, Tamworth South and Odessa South.

Mrs. Yeomans dedicated her life to her home which she loved above all other places and to the education of her son.

The funeral services were held at her late home, “The Pines,” south of Camden East, on Friday, Jan. 6, and was attended by a very large number of friends, and all the brothers and sisters living.  The service was conducted by her minister, Rev. M. Douglas and Rev. Dr. George Brown of Chalmers Church, Kingston.

Interment was in the family plot Camden East.







(nee Detlor)


Deceased was a Very Prominent Woman in Various Circles –

NAPANEE Aug 26 -  Early Friday morning, death claimed a very highly respected resident of North Fredericksburgh in the person of Mrs. Eliza Yeomans in her 71st year, and in her passing the community has lost a devout Christian woman, and the Conservative party of this county one of its most faithful workers.

Although the deceased had not been in the best of health for some years, her condition was not considered serious, until last week when she suffered a severe stroke.

Her two sisters, Mrs. Cummings of Toronto and Mrs. Reid of Napanee who has been spending a few days in Toronto with Mrs. Cummings, arrived in town on Thursday evening, or a few hours before Mrs. Yeomans passed away. 

The deceased was one of a family of four, a daughter of Benjamin and Rebekah Detlor whose home was in the township of Richmond, near Selby.

Her early years were spent at her home and after her marriage to Joseph Yeomans, a well known farmer of Richmond, three years were spent on the farm of Selby.  Leaving Selby they moved to Switzerland where they spent several years, after which they left for Wesley.  Several years were spent in the Wesley district, and then they moved on the farm on the river road, about one mile west of Napanee.

On locating in this community, Mr. and Mrs. Yeomans joined Grace United Church where both took a very exceptional interest.  Mrs. Yeomans was very interested in Sunday School work and for many years was a member of the Friendly Bible Class.  She also was a member of both Women’s Associations and the Women’s Missionary Society.  She took an exceptional interest in politics and was honored some time ago by being elected one of the vice presidents of the Conservative Association for this county.

Her interest in her party never wavered, and right up to the last she evinced much interest in the party which she served so faithfully all her life.  For many years she was a member of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union.  Her interest in Christian Work was so keen that not only did she serve in her own church but she also attended the Pentecostal services. 

Her husband, who predeceased her a little over four years ago was for one year Reeve for North Fredericksburgh.

She leaves to mourn her loss an only son, Harold Yeomans with whom she resides, two sisters, Mrs. Robert Reid of Napanee and Mrs. Cummings of Toronto, and three grandchildren.  An only brother William Detlor passed away a few years ago.

OBITUARY - Minnie York

In the history of Roblin the illness and death of Minnie York will ever be remembered as an event which perhaps more than any other stirred the sympathy of this and every neighbouring community.

Minnie York was born in Tamworth, a daughter of Ethel Brown York and the late Michael Percy York.  From early childhood Minnie was a universal favorite.  Her kind, unselfish disposition, unassuming manner, reliability, and readiness to help others will ever keep her memory green.  After an illness of several weeks during which medical skill and expert nursing were unavailing in efforts to restore health, she passed into the other world on May 18th, being in her 21st year, and with all preparations ready for her approaching wedding.

Minnie York was a consistent church member, an enthusiastic officer and worker in Roblin Mission Circle and Roblin Sunday School.  The funeral service on may 20th, in Roblin United Church was very impressive.  The seating capacity of the church was taxed to the utmost long before the hour announced for service, and very many were unable to enter.  Her Pastor, Rev. C. J. Wilson, preached appropriately and feelingly from Rev. 3:4 “They shall walk with me in white for they are worthy.”  The selections by the Choir were highly appreciated.  Rev. S. H. Jeffery assisted in the service.  The floral tributes were numerous and beautiful.  Wreaths were sent by Mission Circle, Roblin Sunday School, Roblin Public School, Percy Pringle, two from Westplain, Mr. and Mrs. John Easterbrook, Mr. and Mrs. Jess York, Mrs. John Sharp, Jannie and Tressa Denison, and a special floral tribute from Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Pringle.

Besides her sorrowing mother, Mrs. Christie Harten, one brother, Harold, two sisters, Mrs. Harold Young and Helen York mourn her loss.  She will also be sadly missed by her step-father, Mr. Christie Harten, and her step-brothers and sisters.  Remains were interred in Roblin cemetery.







MARLBANK -  June 27 - Gloom has been cast over this entire community over the tragic death of one of our finest young men in the person of Thomas York, youngest son of Reuben H. York, when, early on Friday morning, fire of unknown origin burned to the ground the large farm home of R. H. York, and an older brother Edward and wife and Tommy who lived happily together in the home.  About 2.50 a.m. the alarm was sounded through the village by Earl Kimmett, who with his father John Kimmett, were the first  to be aroused by the screaming of the terrified family. The father having been the first to notice the fire hurriedly aroused Eddie and wife who escaped in their night clothes.  Seeing Tommy was not up Eddie went to his bedroom window, being unable to get upstairs on account of fire and smoke.  He broke the glass with a pole but could get no response.  Thinking that possibly Tom was not upstairs they sent word to the home of Glenn Allan, one of his chums who had been out with him Thursday night, and asked if he was in the doomed house. On learning that Glen had brought him to his home about 2.20 a.m. the family were frantic, and efforts were useless to try and find him for flames had completely enveloped the house and was fast falling in.  The old home was built over 90 years ago and was constructed of pine lumber.  This terrible calamity is the worst that has ever occurred in our community.  After the flames had been subdued the terrible task of trying to find the charred remains was begun with the result that only a small portion could be found.  The funeral took place from the home of the deceased’s brother Jessie on Sunday afternoon at 1.30 to the United Church, where the Rev. W. H. Truscott preached a comforting sermon to the bereaved family taking his text from 2nd Samuel, 12 chapter, 23 verse:  “Can I bring him back again:  I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”  Not a dry eye was to be seen in the vast crowd, the church being far too small to hold the immense number which had gathered to pay respect to one who was held in highest esteem by all who knew him.  The casket containing the few mortal remains was completely covered with beautiful floral offerings including a wreath from his chums.  Six of his chums acted as bearers, namely Glenn Allan, Gordon Hawley, George O’Neil, Ross Lloyd, Aubrey Asselstine and Earl Kimmett, while Hugh and Bob Allan were flower bearers.  After the service the large cortege proceeded to the Tamworth burying ground where the remains were interred in the family plot beside those of his mother.  The aged father was unable to attend the funeral and is at the home of his daughter Mrs. W. C. Marlin.  He is survived by his father, R. H. York, four brothers, Eddie and Jessie at home, Calvin of Toronto, and Willie of Mimico;  three sisters, Mrs. W. C. Marlin of this village, and Mrs. Wm. Wicklam of Lime Lake, and Mrs. Stuart Stinson of Tamworth.  To the bereaved family  is extended the sincere sympathy of this whole community and to the immediate family, especially who have suffered doubly the  loss of a loved one and home also.





Michael Percy


Died at Tamworth, on Friday, July 10th, 1914, Michael Percy Yorke, at the age of 57 years and 10 months.  Deceased was a life-long resident of Sheffield, a farmer, a staunch and active conservative, and a member of the Anglican Church.  He was the eldest of three sons of Daniel Yorke, one of the pioneer settlers of this district, and a man of U. E. Loyalist descent., the other sons being Reuben Yorke, of Marlbank, and James Yorke, of Bell Rock.  He leaves a widow and large family to mourn the loss of a kind husband and affectionate father.  The deceased was widely known and loved by a large circle of warm friends, who knew him as a man who was always ready to give to others or to help anyone in want.  He suffered greatly for a long time and in spite of the care of his devoted wife and children and the best medical aid which could be procured, sank peacefully to rest with a full faith in the pardoning mercy of God.  The funeral services were conducted at Christ Church, Tamworth, under the auspices of the Orange Lodge, of which he was a member, and the body was placed in the vault to await interment in the Anglican cemetery.

A Boy Terribly Scalded - On Friday morning of last week Master Carleton, the three-year-old son of John Young, Sandhurst, was so severely scalded that no hopes are held out for his recovery. Mrs. Young had been doing some washing, and had dipped a pail of water from the boiler and set it on the floor. The little lad came in from play, and tripping backward fell, in a setting posture, into the pail. He was very seriously scalded, the skin from the waist to the knees fairly peeling off. Dr. Northmore, of Bath, was at once summoned and did all that medical skill could suggest to relieve the little patient. A trained nurse from Kingston has been procured, but the doctor says it is almost impossible for the child to live. Mr. and Mrs. Young have the sympathy of the entire community in their great trouble.

Daniel Young, M.D.

Der. Young, formerly a practitioner of Adolphustown, died at 96 Simpson Avenue, Toronto, February 22nd, aged 77.


Doctor Young’s Will – “I will that upon my decease and before my burial, my heart and arteries shall be filled (using a syringe) with a composition made of resin and olive oil, heated together, or some combination that becomes solid on cooling, and used warm enough to remain liquid sufficiently long to fill the heart and arteries as well as possible, and then pass from the liquid to the solid state, and a regular physician shall perform the said task or undertaking.  If I should die and be buried at sea, or there are any other circumstances which make the fulfilment of this first clause of my will absolutely impossible, it shall be null and void.”  Such is a clause from the will of the late Dr. Daniel Young, formerly of the Township of Adolphustown, and then of 188 Grace Street, Toronto, who died on February 22nd last.  He left an estate of $13,762 of which $3,165 is a note, $8,397 in stocks, and $2,200 in real estate, at 125 Grace Street.  The stocks are 9 shares Dominion Bank, $2,178;  4 shares C.P.R. common,  $664;  30 shares Tri-City Railway and Light, $2,610;  20 shares Twin City common, $2,120;  2 bonds, Porto Rico Railway, $810;  and 100 shares Amalgamated Cobalt, $15.  Bequests are made to 37 people and institutes.  John R. Young, nephew, Vancouver, $3000;  Emma M. Young, niece, Vancouver, $3000;  Margaret V. Young, North Toronto, $800;  Phoebe Barton, niece, Campbellford, $400;  Church of England in Canada, $50;  Presbyterian Church, $50, Methodist Church, $50;  Canadian College of Missions $50.  The rest of the estate, $6,362 is divided among 29 relatives  in different parts of Canada and the States, each receiving $220.  To his niece, Agnes Young, is given “the ancient portrait of my grandfather “Tully” in oil painting, and set in a heavy gold receptacle.”  The executors are J. R. Young and Benson O’Hara, nephews, and Margaret V. Young, niece, to whom are bequeathed clothing, books, trunk and suit case.  Provision is made for the erection of Scotch granite monuments and markers over the graves of his parents and brother, George to cost at least $500, and a red Scotch granite monument worth about $250 over his own grave.  Several; medical men were interviewed as to the probable object Dr. Young had in including in his will such an unusual clause as that regarding his heart,   “He may have been under the impression that in having his heart and veins filled with the solution he was helping the cause of science,” said one.  “The solution, however, could not be antiseptic.  It is just possible that he may have wished to demonstrate the anatomical structure of the heart and vessels, as the veins and heart would then not be empty.  It is possible that it is just a fad.  There is, you see, no provision for his not being buried, hence his experiment would not be a success.”  “As he has declared the clause null and void if he is buried at sea,“ said another, “I imagine that he is simply taking steps to avoid being buried alive.  The heart has to be opened, and of course, after that, there is no chance of a mistake.”  “A fad,” said another, “just a fad.  There are far too many of them and I don’t know what the world is coming to.”

Funeral at Bath of Fletcher Young

Prominent Resident Passes - Was Born in South Fredericksburgh

Bath - The funeral of the late Fletcher Young, which took place on Tuesday afternoon from his late residence to St. John's Anglican Church, was one of the largest seen in the village in some time, evidencing the regard and esteem in which he was held by the residents as a whole.

The service, which was conducted by the pastor, Rev. L.O. Walker, although very impressive, was marked by its simplicity. St. John's Church was unable to accommodate the large number of friends and practically every resident member of Maple Leaf Masonic Lodge was present. The pallbearers were selected from the members of the craft, including relatives, and the interment took place in the family plot in Sandhurst cemetery. There was a profusion of flowers.

Mr. Young was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Robert Young and was born in South Fredericksburgh. His father was a farmer, and the deceased spent his earlier years on the farm. About eighteen years ago he with Mrs. Young and family came to Bath, the former having purchased the coal business from G.A. Wartman.

His eighteen years in the village had been marked with splendid success. Mr. Young took an active part in the municipal and educational life of the community, and for some time was a member of the village council. For the past number of years he was a member of the school board, and his death creates a vacancy.

Very interested in fraternalism, he joined the Masonic Order many years ago and for twelve years was secretary of Maple Leaf Lodge, having to give up his work the beginning of the year owing to ill health. His wife predeceased him about ten months.

In his passing Bath has lost a resident it can ill afford to lose, and the village will be the poorer by his death.

To mourn his loss are two sons, Clarence of Williamstown and Ernest, teacher at Wilton, and one daughter, Miss Madeline, who has been attending the Napanee Collegiate Institute. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. (Dr.) H.S. Northmore.

The dead body of Mr. John A. Young, Conway, was found in his duck boat on Saturday, by his nephews, Borden and Arnold Young, near Mr. Young's hunting lodge on Hay Bay.

On Tuesday evening, Feb 17th, the grim reaper death entered our midst bearing away one of our oldest residents, in the person of Mr. Philip Young. Deceased was a well known and highly respected resident of this place having spent the past 33 years of his life on the place where he died. Notwithstanding his advanced age of 82 years, he was still very active and ambitious, and although not having very good health for the last two or three years, he was not confined to the house until Sunday night when he was afflicted with a stroke from which he did not rally, passing away on Tuesday night. Eight of his children were present at his bedside, Mr. B. Young, of Montreal, being the only one absent. From the family chain the first link has been severed, and the frail bark which for so many years had tossed on life's tempestuous seas, is at last safe in the harbor. A beautiful and impressive service was conducted at the church by Rev. Mr. White, Napanee, from the words, "And I heard a voice from Heaven saying unto me, write, blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth; Yea, saith the spirit that they may rest from their labors and their works do follow them." Deceased was a firm adherent of the Methodist church, having been converted over 50 years ago. (**Written in - May 15 1903**).
