Mabee,

Dr. J. E.

 

MABEE - Entered into rest at his home, Odessa, on Tuesday, August 20, 1940, Dr. J. E. Mabee, dear husband of B. Decker, formerly of Whitby, and father of Dr. H. C. Mabee, Kingston, Ontario.  Funeral will take place from his late residence on Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock (Daylight Saving time).  Friends and acquaintances respectfully invited to attend.  Interment at Cataraqui Cemetery.  Masonic service..

 

Dr. J. E. Mabee Medical man For 53 Years -

Funeral services for the late Dr. J. E. Mabee, who died at his home in Odessa late Tuesday morning, will be conducted at his residence Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock (D.S.T.) Interment will be at Cataraqui Cemetery and a Masonic service will be held.

The death of Dr. Mabee removed the oldest practising physician in this part of the country for it was for 53 years that Dr. Mabee practised his profession, always at Odessa.  For 52 years of that he was medical health officer of the Township of Ernestown, a record believed to be unequalled anywhere in Canada.  The late Dr. Mabee was born May 22, 1851, in the Township of Louth, near Beamsville, the son of Thomas Mabee of Prince Edward County and Amanda Tinlin of Beamsville.  The family moved to Odessa when Dr. Mabee was six years old and outside of the time he was in attendance at Queen’s University, he had resided in Odessa.  He was educated there, going on to Queen’s University in the medical school from which he graduated in 1887.  He went right back to Odessa, bought out the practice of Dr. Thomas Beeman, started in to practise medicine and continued there ever since.  Dr. Mabee was known all over the countryside.  He was a friend and counsellor to the great majority of the people of the community and not only attended to their medical and surgical needs but shared their troubles and joys.  He was the typical family doctor, confidant and thoroughly interested friend, all rolled into one.  Despite his long years of practice, he had not actually retired from the profession, though of late he had not done extensive work.

He was ill in bed only a little more than a week.  He had been in Bloomfield on August 9 to see his first cousin, P.A. Mabee, whose wife died last May.  They had been married 77 years.

Honored Doctor -

Dr. Mabee was a member of the Frontenac Medical Association and the Lennox and Addington Medical Association.  He was a life member of the Ontario Medical Association.  Three years ago he was honoured by the Frontenac Medical Society when he had completed fifty years of medical practice.  A dinner was tendered in his honor at the Kingston General Hospital and he was presented with a gold-headed cane and the warm congratulations of members of the medical profession.  He was a member of the Independent Order of Foresters, Chosen Friends, Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Prince Arthur Masonic Lodge, all of Odessa.  He was also a member of the Eastern Star.  During the first World War he took a keen interest in the work of the Red Cross and played a leading part of the activities of the Red Cross in the Odessa district.

The deceased doctor had also taken an active interest in the militia in his younger days and succeeded Lt.-Col. Cox of Enterprise as commanding officer of the old 47th Regiment, which had a company in Odessa.  He was a member of the United Church.

He married twice.  His first wife was Frances Storms of Odessa, who died in 1888.  To this union were born one son, Dr. Horace Mabee, William Street, Kingston, and one daughter, Grace, who died at the age of 16 years.  Dr. Mabee married Beatrice Decker of Whitby in 1903, who survives.

SLEPT PEACEFULLY AWAY -

Death of Miss Mary Mackenzie, in Rochester -

In the midst of her studies, by which she was preparing herself to become a medical missionary, Miss Mary Mackenzie, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Mackenzie, passed peacefully to rest, at the Medical Missions Training School, Rochester, N.Y., on Friday morning.  She had been ill but a few hours, with that treacherous disease, pneumonia, when she said to those with her that she thought she would go to sleep.  Thus easily she slipped from the lower to the higher training school.  Miss Mackenzie, who was the beloved elder sister of a family of nine children, graduated from Toronto General Hospital training school for nurses, a short time ago and was but twenty-five years old.  Four brothers and four sisters survive, Misses Elsie, Janet, Mima and Maggie at home;  Allan, New York;  William, St. Louis;  Duncan and Kenneth, of this city.  William Young, an uncle, and Allan Mackenzie brought the body from Rochester to this city for burial;  the funeral will take place to-morrow.  Miss Mackenzie was a member of Chalmers church and many friends will grieve deeply at her death.

Madden,

James

 

JAMES MADDEN -  Was born in Belleville in the year 1852, and died at Chatham, Ont., Dec. 19th, 1885.  He was a brother of the late Rev. C.C. Madden, of the London Conference Methodist Church of Canada.  Bro. Madden was blessed with truly Christian parents, and during his childhood was surrounded by holy influences;  at the age of nine years he was converted at a camp meeting, held at Kingston, and from that time rejoiced in the evidence of his acceptance through the Precious Blood.  The writer became acquainted with Bro. Madden while stationed at Chatham, where he was attending high school  His thought and aspirations then were toward the Methodist ministry.  As a student he was earnest, and his Christian example produced good effect.  Through change of circumstances he was unable to pursue his studies.  He removed to the North - West, and engaged in evangelistic work.   On his return to Chatham he found the Salvation Army at work, he saw then a field for service, and joined the ranks;   his promotion was rapid.  He became staff-captain and divisional officer of the Kingston Division.  His subsequent career, including his persecution and imprisonment at Montreal, has been freely noticed in the Army papers.  Bro. Madden fell a prey to consumption and his death no doubt was hastened by hard work and exposure.  He was sick for nearly twelve months.  He bore his illness with marked patience and resignation. On being asked if Jesus was precious he replied “His presence fills the room.”  His end was peace;  without a sigh or groan he fell asleep in Jesus.  “He was a good man and full of the Holy Ghost.”  [signed] G.R.T.

G. Carscallen.  For many years Mr. Madole had been one of the strongest and most faithful members of Grace Methodist Church and Sunday School and an ardent supporter of every movement to increase the spiritual and material welfare of the church.  In business Mr. Madole was known all over the county and highly respected.  Among other hardware dealers he was also honoured by being elected president of their association. Besides his widow he leaves three daughters, Mrs. Reddick, Napanee, Mrs, Allen, New York, and Miss Maisie at home.  The funeral took place from his late residence Friday afternoon.  Private service was held at the home and a public service in Grace Church. –Napanee Express.

THE LATE MRS. JOHN MAGEE - Margaret Elizabeth Lawson, beloved wife of John Magee, passed away at her home in South Fredericksburgh on March the 29th . The daughter of the late James Lawson and his wife, Mary Ann Melville, Mrs. Magee was born on a farm adjoining the one on which she spent her married life. In her early childhood her parents moved to Petrolia where her father was in business for some years until their return to Napanee. She was married to John Magee on September 3rd 1889, theirs being the first marriage in the U.E. L. Church at Dorland.

Mrs. Magee leaves to mourn her loss, one sister, Mrs. D. S. Cowan, of Petrolia; an aunt, Mrs. R. J. McKee of Los Angeles; her husband, one son, Bert, of Sillsville, and six daughters, the Misses Hattie and Margaret, at home, Mrs. H. M. Hough of Sillsville; Mrs. Floyd Vannest, of Hawley, Mrs. F. B. Wright and Mrs. William Henwood of Conway.

Mrs. Magee was much respected and beloved in the community. She was a woman of ready wit and youthful spirit, which kept her young in heart and mind to the last. Due to the proximity of the Union Church the ministers, both Anglican and Methodist, were the frequent recipients of her broad-minded hospitality. She was a woman of deep religious convictions and strove to impress them upon her family. Her passing has left a great gap in the family circle.

The funeral service was held in the U.E.L. Church, Dorland, from which she was carried to the cemetery, and laid to rest beside her father.

PAST THREE SCORE AND TEN - Mr. Robert Magee was born in the County of Donegal, Ireland, in the year 1823, and died at The Pines, South Fredericksburgh, on November 20th , 1907, having reached the ripe age of 84 years, 9 months and 6 days. The funeral was held in the Union church, where in spite of the unfavorable condition of the roads, and other obstacles, a large number of neighbors and friends gathered to pay their respect to all that was mortal of the deceased. Six sons, viz., Robert, of Toronto; William, John, Andrew, Alexander and Joseph, all of The Pines, acting as pall bearers, and one daughter, Mrs. J. Dickson, Hayburn, mourn the loss of a kind-hearted and affectionate father. The funeral was conducted by the Rev. W. S. Boyce, after which the body was placed in the vault at Napanee, to be interred at a later date in the Methodist cemetery, Adolphustown. The subject of this obituary was a good citizen, highly respected, in religion a Methodist; in his Christian life he was devoted to his Master, and the church of his choice. He was one of the principal men who engaged in the erection of the Union church, and was one of the chief supporters of God's cause in this community. A large number of friends sympathize with the sons and daughter and relatives of the deceased, believing however, that their loss was his gain.

 

MAGEE - Robert Magee was born in Donegal, Ireland, 1823, and died at “The Pines,” South Fredericksburg, November 20, 1907, at the advanced age of eighty-four years, nine months, and six days.  The funeral was held at the Union Church, and was largely attended.  The body, which was laid in Napanee vault, will be buried in the U.E.L. Methodist cemetery at Adolphustown.  Bro. Magee was a life-long Methodist, his early home in Ireland being a regular place for worship.  He was highly respected by all, and was a man of pure life and deep piety, devoted to the church of his choice, and a good supporter of it.  He was alive to every good work.  He leaves behind him a family of six sons and one daughter to mourn his loss.  We believe that “He was faithful unto death,” as he longed for his Master’s coming to adorn him with “a crown of life.”  The sorrowing friends have the sympathy of a wide circle of friends.    W.S. Boyce

Mallory,

Ella & Harry

 

Obituary - The fatal diphtheria has made sad havoc in the home of Mr. Ezra A. Mollary, of Adolphustown.  Ella the youngest child, a bright and beautiful girl, in the 13th year of her age, fell a victim to its power on the 18th Nov., 1889.  During her brief illness everything that the utmost love and tenderness could suggest was done to save her life, but in vain. She was very sweetly resigned to the blessed Saviour's will, and died in the triumphs of a child's confiding faith.

On the evening of the day of little Ella's funeral, Harry, the youngest boy, - a fine, promising young fellow, in the 17th year of his age, was seized with the fatal malady;  and while the promptest measures were adopted, he sank rapidly, and on the 28th Nov. was laid to rest in the Methodist burying ground, by the side of his sister whom he loved so well.

If there be any consolation in religion in the hours of our deepest anguish, it must surely be a comfort to the bereft parents and friends to know that the dear children had so recently knelt side by side at the Saviour's feet for salvation, and through the simple faith of childhood had obtained the brightest assurance of their acceptance with God.  In his last moments Harry gave the clearest evidence of the hope of eternal life, and talked very sweetly of the reunion with his darling sister in the beautiful mansions of light.  They were lovely in life, and in death undivided.

For ever with the Lord, amen, so let it be.     H. Ash.

(nee Gleason)

 

Mrs. John Manion -

Death once again has caused a widespread sorrow throughout this community, on February 9th last, also around her native country where she was born, in the person of Mrs. John Manion, formerly Miss Annie Gleason.  She was of a loveable disposition, a person of rare Christian virtues, whose life was an adornment, which dignified the sacred position of a wife and mother, a holy life studded thick and fair with earthly deeds.  She was a young woman, whose future life seemed to be foreshadowed with every happiness, as her home seemed to always have a ray of bright sunshine within, no matter how dark it seemed outside.  She was great of soul with a keen intelligence, a generous heart, a loyal and energetic disposition, with an unshakable will, she being the kind of a mother we all love to admire.

Her kindness and strength of character endeared her not only to her family, but also to the many friends whom she always treated in a cordial manner. Her company was always agreeable and attractive, and many were the tributes heard to her womanly character and staunch faith;  also messages of grief and regret heard on all sides.  So we all send prayerful sympathy to her dear family, especially her mother and sisters and poor dear little children, who have ever been the object of her tender care and attention.  So may her Blessed Mother console these in her tender and loving way, until time gives pleasure to the love that they  all will enjoy together for all eternity.

The kindness of the neighbours is to be remembered since her death offering a helping hand in different ways.  the same was with herself, no sacrifice was too great for her to show her good will in giving a helping hand to any one who stood in need of it.

Her funeral took place on Tuesday to St. Patrick’s Church, where a solemn High Mass was sung by her Priest Father McDonald, who administered the last rites of her Church to her on her dying bed.  The many spiritual offerings, numbering sixty-seven, bore testimony of the esteem in which the deceased was held.

MANION - At Richmond, on Saturday, February 9th, 1929, Annie Manion, aged 42 years and 8 months.

 

OBITUARY - Miss Ida May Manion -

Many hearts were saddened and shocked on Monday morning, July 10th, when word was received that Ida Manion had passed peacefully away to the Great Beyond, at her beautiful home, near Selby, after a lingering illness, although for several years she had been failing in health, the last two months being very trying.  Despite all that loving hands and medical skill could do to prolong her earthly flight, she passed away with a perfect resignation to God’s will.  Her sufferings were very intense by times, but she bore them with great patience and cheerfulness with a courage seldom exceeded.

It seems so hard to see a sweet young life like Ida’s cut off in the prime.  It seems so strange about a month ago her friends were summoned to her bedside, fearing the end was near, but with wonderful recuperative power she rallied again, and seemed much better in health, but a sudden change later on seemed to follow, and terminated in her death.  She was a member of the League of the Sacred Heart and Altar Society.  She was also a member of the Women’s League, in which she was always much interested.  She was very fond of music and flowers, and enjoyed the association of her friends.

The funeral took place Wednesday morning to St. Patrick’s Church, Napanee, where a solemn requiem mass was sung by Reverend Father O’Connor for the repose of her soul.  Her beautiful casket had a number of religious offerings from her friends.   The pall-bearers were Messrs. Frank Denison, Shirley Lewis, Jack Donovan, John Manion, Tom Manion and Mr. Bradshaw.

Reginald Mapp’s Body Recovered -

NAPANEE,  June 21 - The body of Reginald map, who lost his life in the Napanee River on Thursday morning was recovered shortly after three o’clock in the afternoon, the recovery being mad by the use of a seine.  From twenty to twenty-five men were working when the body was recovered.  It was down to a depth of over twenty feet.  The body was taken to the undertaking parlors of VanLuven and Wartman.  No inquest will be held.

Mapp, a young Englishman, aged about 23 years, was drowned in the Napanee River near Woodcock’s school-house, about five miles west of here, yesterday morning.

The young man, who formerly worked for several farms in the district, had been employed with the stone-crusher.  A boat, which had been tied to the dock, drifted out into the river and the young man threw off his coat and started to swim out. He had gone a short distance when he sank from sight.  Efforts were made to rescue him, but they proved to no avail.

KILLED IN ACTION - PTE. R. M. MARLIN -

Pte. Richie M. Marlin was born in Hungerford, Ont., February 16th, 1897, and died on the field of France, April 9th, 1917.  Pte. Marlin was of a kind and loving disposition, always willing to lend a helping hand, and was well liked by young and old of the neighborhood in which he lived.  Richie was one of the brave boys who thought that liberty and freedom were better than life under Prussian rule.  He therefore voluntarily left his father’s home and went to a foreign land to do his bit for King and Country.  A memorial service was held on Sunday, June 24th, in Ebenezer Church.  The church was crowded with sympathizing friends, and the address was given by his Pastor, Rev. J. F. Everson, and was full of sympathy and patriotism.  It was a masterly address from the text, Matthew 10:39, “He that findeth his life, shall lose it; and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” 

He threw his living breast to stem the German tide,

This volunteer from Canada he as veteran tried.

He met the boast of William’s host,

He met them hand to hand,

This volunteer from Canada,

This boy of our land.

When men come back from war’s grim track,

And silent is the gun;

I’ll look with pride on him that died,

And say he was my son.

MARY A. MERRETT -  The beloved wife of Israel Marshall, died in the Lord August 20th, 1885, at their residence, Caistor township, aged forty years five months and twelve days.  Our sister was married to him that now mourns his loss for nineteen years.   The gap that death has made is great, as there are eight of an offspring left behind, and a part of whom are very tender in days and years, and need much care.  The departed sister was brought to God at the early age of twelve years, and has been a member of the Church ever since.  In early life the servants of God made their home at her father’s house.  And it was no doubt a source of comfort to her  to remember the fervent prayers that were offered for her in early life by the missionaries that scattered the Gospel truths through this part of the work.  Her aged father passed on before her some five years, and will greet her on the other shore.  For some ten years our departed sister has been in an uncertain state of health, and been thus reminded that her end was somewhat nigh.  Rev. Mr. Kennedy visited and prayed with her, and gave testimony at the funeral of her bright prospects for the land of the holy.  Though much desired, her useful life could not be spared.  Her remains are deposited in the graveyard at Ker Church; but her spirit is with Christ.  The funeral was large, and was conducted by Rev. Mr. Duff and Rev. Mr. Kennedy.  The pastor discoursed from the words, “All flesh is as grass.”  Many tokens were shown by those present of their deep respect that they had for Sister Marshall.  May her family and neighbors meet her in heaven, when our toils are over.

ROBERT MARTIN -

Robert Martin of Camden, born in the village of Newburg in the early fifties, died at his residence at the age of 85.  Having contracted pneumonia he lay ill for ten days and failed to respond to the treatment afforded him.  All of his family were at his bedside when the end came.  The deceased, whose father died when he was quite young, was left the sole support of a widowed mother and five sisters, only one of whom, a sister, Mrs. Yerex of Portland, Oregon, survives him.

Later in life he married Agnes E. Weese, who predeceased him almost three years ago.  Of the union three sons and two daughters were born, all of whom survive him, Harry C. and Dr. R. D. of Niagara Falls, N.Y., Reginald of Winnipeg, Miss Hazel at home and Mrs. Harold Nugent of Wesley.

The deceased was a successful farmer, having developed and maintained one of the best farms in the township.  His judgement was often sought relative to crop and soil conditions, of which he had made a study.  His home was an open house to anyone who cared to come under his roof.  He was a strong supporter of the Conservative Party. In his passing the community loses a familiar figure with a fund of ready Irish wit.

Rev. E. F. Swayne conducted a very impressive service at Wesley United Church and later at Camden East cemetery, where the remains were laid to rest beside those of this wife, sister and father.

DISTRICT NEWS – On Wednesday of last week, Mr. James McDonald, Jr., of Tamworth, while engaged on a drive of logs on Salmon river, about two miles from Arden, lost his life while assisting in breaking a “jam.”  He slipped off the log he was standing upon, and, when he came to the surface was struck by another log and knocked under the jam.  His body was recovered in about an hour.

 

On Wednesday afternoon the 7th inst., the people of this place and its vicinity were greatly shocked by the sad news that Jimmy (James) Macdonald was killed about noon that day.  Shortly the mournful tale was proved to be true, when by friends and relatives the body was brought home.  Sorrow filled the hearts of all who knew Jimmy, when the news of his untimely death was announced.  This young man was within a few days to be 17.  He had his growth young, and was employed as one of the river drivers in the Rathbun firm.  This accident, it is said, happened near Cross Lake by falling into the stream, and struck senseless by one of the logs, so that he sank and drowned.  Being young and ambitious, probably he exposed himself more than was needed.  His life gave a fair prospect of manhood, but in the spring time of that life suddenly it was taken away.  On Thursday afternoon a large number of friends and connections assembled at the house for the funeral to pay their last respects to the departed.  The services were conducted by J. H. Jones at Beaver lake school house, text Luke xii, 40, after which the remains of the departed one were laid in Thompson’s cemetery near Beaver lake.

Death of J.A. McDowall

Came of an Interesting Family - An Old Queen's Man

The community will learn with great regret of the death of James A. McDowall, barrister, Sarnia, which occurred on Wednesday morning at his mother's residence in this city. He had lived in Sarnia many years, where he had practiced his profession. Up to a year ago he enjoyed excellent health, but about that time symptoms of the malady which caused his death began to show themselves. During the fall and early winter he grew worse, and about two weeks ago, his brother, Robert McDowall, went to Sarnia and brought him to his mother's. After a few days rest among his friends, he appeared to revive somewhat, but soon he began to sink, and yesterday the end came.

Mr. McDowall graduated at Queen's in 1867, and after graduation entered on the study of law in the office of Campbell, Mowat & Macdonnell. He was also a graduate of the old Kingston military school. During his college and law courses he was one of a group of young men who took special interest in the old alma mater society, when that body was more of a debating and literary temper than at the present. That was a feature of the old college days, a profitable one; and none enjoyed the meetings more than the late Mr. McDowall. After graduating in law he began practise in Sarnia, where he was much esteemed as  a citizen. He was a man of pure spirit, and scrupulously honorable in his professional relations. Though somewhat reticent of speech, yet he was a very interesting man in conversation, because of his wide reading, cultured taste and judgment. He came of an interesting line. His grandfather was Rev. Robert McDowall, the first Presbyterian minister in central Canada, and the organizer of St. Andrew's church, of this city. The Memorial church at Fredericksburgh was built in honor of his name and memory.

The late Mr. McDowall was connected with St. Andrew's church, Sarnia, and the last interview between Dr. Tomson, the pastor, and himself, as they spoke of the calm, strong assurance in which the christian lives and dies, was uncommonly touching, and when the end drew near he was not afraid. His remains will be buried with his departed kindred in the family burying plot at Fredericksburgh Memorial church. Mrs. N.C. Polson, of this city is a sister of the late Mr. McDowall. Sincere sympathy is extended to his venerable mother and the other bereaved relatives.

Dr. J. L. McDowall, Noted Sportsman, Buried in Kingston.

Remembered by many in Ottawa as Prominent Football and Hockey Star in Early Nineties.

The funeral took place at Kingston today of Dr. John L. McDowall of Perth Amboy, N.J. He died there on Monday.  He earned distinction as an eye, ear, nose and throat specialist.  He was 65.

Dr. McDowall will be remembered by many in Ottawa as an outstanding athlete. He was a member of the old Granite football team of Kingston and Queen's University football team, and played often in Ottawa in the early 1900's against the old Ottawa College and Rough Rider teams.  He played on the famous all-Canadian football team at Buffalo in 1900.

He was also a fine hockey player and was a member of the old Frontenac and Queen's University hockey teams, starring along with Hon. Dr. R.J. Manion, with whom he maintained a close friendship.  Later his hobbies were deep sea fishing and big game hunting.  After graduation from Queen's he was an intern at the Manhattan Eye and Ear Hospital, following which he was connected with the Presbyterian Hospital at New York. He carried out many special works for the Washington government.  For many years he was in private practice. 

Dr. McDowall was a son of the late Robert J. McDowall of Kingston and a great grandson of the Rev. Robert J. McDowall, a United Empire Loyalist in 1798, and the pioneer Church of Scotland minister in Kingston, his parish at that time extending from Kingston to Queenston.

He leaves to mourn his loss two sisters and one brother:  Mrs. W. L. McFarland, Toronto;  Mrs. K. Johnston, Kingston, and Robert J. McDowall, Ottawa;  also three nephews and three nieces:  Lieut. J. W. McDowall, Royal Canadian Navy;  Robert McDowall, R.C.S.F., in Scotland;  J. Robertson, Belleville, Ont.;  Mrs. D. Ross, Belleville;  Mrs. Gordon Bolton, Toronto;  Mrs. Mary McFarland, England.

Rev. Robert

 

At his residence in Fredericksburgh on 3rd  inst., the Rev. Robert McDowall, aged 73.

 

The Rev. Robert McDowall, who died on August 3, was born in 1768 in Saratoga N.Y. of Scotch parents. His father, having been a zealous loyalist, was detained in prison by the Revolutionary party during the war, and lost all his property which appears to have been valuable. He commenced his studies, first at Grammar School after leaving which he went to Williams College in Massachusetts, and completed his studies under the late Rev. Mr. Romeyn, Prof. of Theology at Schenectady, under the General Synod of the Dutch Reformed Church. At the request of those settlers belonging to that church who, after the American Revolution, emigrated to Canada, he was ordained by the Classis or Presbytery of Albany, and appointed to labour amongst them as a Missionary, coming to Canada in 1798 to the neighbourhood of the Bay of Quinte.

 

MCDOWELL, Rev. Robert, died at his residence, Fredericksburgh, Aug 2 1841, age 73.

 

DIED - At his residence in Fredericksburgh, last evening the Reverend Robert Macdowell, aged 73, much regretted and universally esteemed.  His numerous friends and acquaintances are respectfully informed that his funeral will take place on Friday next the 6th inst., at 2:00 p.m.

William J.

 

OBITUARY - WILLIAM J. McGILL -  One of the worthy and highly respected citizens of Camden Township, passed away on Thursday morning, Oct. 5th, in the person of William J. McGill, who was born in the township, near Centreville, on February 12th, 1848, and with the exception of a few short visits to other points, spent all his life therein.  He was one of a family of ten children of the late Thomas McGill and his wife, Mary King,  and was carefully trained in early life in those virtues that go to make useful citizens.  

On November 5th, 1875, he was united in marriage with Annie Copeland.  On his farm he worked faithfully and with method and perseverance succeeded in building up a valuable property.  In the church he was ever a reverent worshipper and attended faithfully to the work of the various offices given him.  Of a quiet and somewhat reserved disposition he never sought public office, but his counsel was often of worth to those filling office.  His home was one in which godly influence was ever exerted for the good of this family and friends.  For nearly forty years, he was treasurer of L. O. L. No 756 and for many years a member of the John W. Bell Black Preceptory No. 725 

The funeral service of Saturday last, which were attended  by a large number of friends and relatives were held in the home and  the Methodist Church and were conducted by his Pastor, Rev. M. W. Leigh, B. A., and the officers of the lodges of which he was a member.  The pall-bearers were all Orangemen, as follows,  Robert Wilson, Robert Brown, Joseph Tate, Solomon  Clancy, Jacob Doupe and John W. Reid.  To cherish the memory of his useful and godly life, there remain in addition to his wife, two sons, Thomas E. and Geo. A., both of Centreville;  four daughters, Mrs. F. C. Gerow, Mrs. Fred Milligan, both of Centreville;  Mrs. J. Toshack, of Drumheller Alta., and Mrs. J. Paxton of Regina;  two brothers, Wesley and Robert and a large circle of acquaintances.

Deep gloom was cast over the vicinity of Centreville, when the many friends of W. T. McGill heard of his death on Saturday, March 21st, in Kingston General Hospital, following an operation for appendicitis on March 18th.  Although he seemed to be in perfect health up to the time of his operation, all that medical skill and loving hearts and hands could do was of no avail. He was born on September 23rd, 1891 at Centreville, the eldest son of Mrs. McGill and the late Robert McGill.  The funeral service which was largely attended, was held in Centreville United Church, on Monday, March 23rd, when the pastor, Rev. D. M. Stinson, spoke very fittingly from the words:  “No man is sure of Life.:  After the service, Masonic rites were performed by Victoria Lodge No. 299, A.F. & A.M.  The body was taken to Regina and laid to rest in Regina Cemetery, by the side of his wife, Hazel Price, of Hinch, who died in 1912.  Pall-bearers were Kenneth Lockridge, John A. Wartman, Ross Milligan, Fred Brown, Stanley Doupe and Kenneth Weese.

ARTHUR BIBLE McGINNESS -  passed to his eternal reward on Monday August 14th at the age of seventy-one years, three months and eleven days.  He leaves a wife and thirteen children, seven sons and six daughters to mourn the loss of a kind, indulgent husband and father.  But they sorrow not as those without hope.  His sun has set here to rise more brightly on the other shore.  His suffering for eight weeks, was borne with patience and Christian fortitude.  His last words to his sorrowing family as they stood around his bed, were “I am going home to a merciful God.”  Deceased, who was a son of Robert McGinness, late of Selby, was born in Limerick county, Ireland in a place called Kilfinnane, in 1828.  In 1830, he came to Canada with his father who settled on a farm north of Selby.  Here he resided until 1850, when he was united in marriage to Margaret Biggar, and moved to his late home near Roblin, where he has since resided.  The services on Wednesday were conducted by Rev. W. G. Swayne.  He preached from I Cor. xv, 12, 13 and 14.  The remains were interred in the English church Cemetery, south of Selby.  The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community.

DISTRESSING CASUALTY - On Wednesday, the 15th October,  as Mr. Jas. M’Gonion and his two sons, Alexander, aged 20 and James, aged 10 years were returning in a sail boat from Kingston to Adolphustown (the place of their residence) when nearly opposite Herchimer’s Point, the boat, as it is supposed, unfortunately capsized, and all three of them were drowned.  The body of the oldest son was found on Monday last, and that of the father on Wednesday, and decently interred.  It is supposed the body of the youngest son is in the boat.  They were natives of Scotland, from whence they emigrated about eight years ago.  A widow and two or three children are left to mourn this afflcting dispensation of Divine Providence, but we feel happy in saying they do not “mourn as those without hope.”

Deceased's maiden name was Elizabeth Graham. She was born in Richmond. In 1857, she married James McIlwaine, and for over forty years they resided on the homestead near Selby. Her husband predeceased her in 1896. For the past eighteen years she resided with her daughter, Mrs. Sharp. Her life was spent for the welfare of her home and children.

About three weeks ago she took a cold, which developed into pneumonia, and although all that loving hands could do to stay the disease, she passed peacefully away.

She leaves one son, Andrew, of Adolphustown, and Ida, with whom she resided, to mourn the loss of a most devoted other.

She is also survived by six grandchildren and seventeen great grandchildren.

in the absence of her pastor, the services were conducted at the house by Rev. M. Woodger, of Grace Church, Napanee, who based his remarks on her favorite passage of scripture in John 14:1. The Union Choir also assisted in the service, after which the remains were placed in Riverview cemetery beside those of her husband and daughter, Mrs. Peter Weese.

THE LATE MRS.

JAMES ROBERT McKIBBON -

Son of John McKibbon, was born in Packenham, Ontario, December 21st, 1874. In 1878 the family came to Manitoba, and settled in Meadow Lea.  In 1884 he became the subject of converting grace, under the ministry of Rev. J. H. Rattan, and ever after presented such a beautiful Christian life as demonstrated his union with Christ the Vine.  After a long and painful illness, which lasted over a year, and was borne with the patience of an aged saint, he sweetly and triumphantly entered into the heavenly rest, on the 6th of September, 1886.  His last utterance was “Blessed Jesus, take me home speedily if it is thy will.”  Thank God, our people still die well.  On the 8th his body was borne to its last resting place by a large and deeply affected concourse of people, where we laid him to rest until the Master calls him forth robed in resurrection grandeur.  May God console the parents, and prepare them to meet him on high.

Mr. J.N. McKim, aged 78 years, died on Friday afternoon last. Mr. McKim, was, up to a little over a week ago, able to be up around, and despite his years, walked with a firmness and erectness that might well be copied by many young men. On February 22nd, Mr. McKim was seized with neuralgia of the heart, and for a number of days he suffered severely, until death relieved him. Mr. McKim was a man of fine physique, being over 6 feet in height, and was one of a family of five brothers, all fine men, the sons of the late John and Lydia McKim, of Switzerville, who were of the old U.E.L. stock.

The deceased was married to Miss Jane Shibley, daughter of John Shibley, a well-known resident of Portland township, who, with the following children survive: - Anson and Nelson, of Montreal, the well-known advertising agents; Walter Palmer, Manitoba; Mrs. George Shorey, North Fredericksburgh; Mrs. James Rose, North Dakota; Mrs. George Rose, of Manitoba; Mrs. (Dr.) Graham, of Deloraine; and Mrs. A.R.

Mr. McKim was a class leader in the Eastern Methodist Church and in politics a Liberal.

The sympathy of a large circle of friends is extended to their family in their sad bereavement, in which THE STAR joins.

The funeral, which was one of the largest seen in Napanee for a long time, took place at 2.30 on Sunday afternoon at the Eastern Methodist church.

Wm. McLaughlin

Mr. Wm. McLaughlin, well known among Napanee’s younger citizens, passed away at his home on John St., on Saturday morning.  Mr. McLaughlin has been ailing since the New Year from pernicious anaemia, so that there was no hope for his recovery from the first.  Gradually growing weaker as the disease progressed, he finally succumbed on Saturday.

Mr. McLaughlin was the son of the late Ephraim McLaughlin, who predeceased him by about a year, and Mrs. McLaughlin, the ticket agent for the C.P.R. in Napanee.  Mr. McLaughlin at the time of his death was employed as Express Agent at the station.

He was just in the prime of life and had all along been a keen athlete and intensely interested in the athletics of the town and vicinity.  At the time of his death he was the President of the town Hockey Club.  He was as well a member and active worker of the Oddfellows organization, to which he devoted a good deal of his time.

There survives him, his wife (formerly Miss Grace Oliver), Napanee, his mother and two sisters.

The funeral was held from his late home on Monday afternoon.  The service at the house was of a private character.  The Oddfellows and the Hockey Club in uniform, accompanied the body to St. Andrew’s Church, where a public service was held.  Mr. Caldwell and Mrs. Valkman sang “Jesus Lover of My Soul” as a duet.  The hymns were the same as were sung at his father’s funeral a year ago.  Mr. Wilson spoke of Mr. McLaughlin’s life and athletic activities, and spoke words of comfort to the sorrowing wife and family.

After the Church service the Oddfellows conducted their funeral rites, and the procession re-formed and proceeded to Riverview cemetery, where interment was made.

The bearers were Wm. Galt, Wm. Hunter, W. S. Wilson, A. Kimmerly, Limbert Graham and Fred Knapp.

The sympathy of the community goes out to the bereaved, particularly his wife to whom Mr. McLaughlin had been married a little more than a year.

Mehetabell

 

MEHETABELL CARTER -  Was born in Cape Breton, in 1807, her parents having come over from the State of Massachusetts, as they were U.E. Loyalists.  In 1827, she was joined in bonds of holy matrimony to the late Malcom McLeod, who had come from Scotland (his native land) to his country in 1800.  About 1834 they moved to the western part of his Province, and settled in Goderich, Huron county.  After a few years spent in the State of Michigan, United States, they finally located, in 1845, in the township of Raleigh, county of Kent.  They identified themselves with the then Wesleyan Methodist church - and first among those with whose ministry they were favored, the Rev. Dr. Cochran, now of Japan, was held in fond remembrance. After nearly fifty years of wedded life, she was left to finish the journey alone, and yet not alone, for she trusted in the promise of him who hath said, “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.”  An illness of a very severe character prostrated her on March 19th, 1886, resulting in her death, April 10th.  She bore it with Christian fortitude, though often praying the Master, if it were his will, to release her, and her request was granted.  On April 12th, her remains were laid away in Maple Leaf Cemetery, Chatham.  The funeral sermon was preached at Union Hall, Raleigh, on Easter Sunday, by the Rev. J. G. Scott, Chairman of the District.  The text was Micah ii. 10.  “This is not your rest.”  He repeated during his sermon the following from the pen of C. Mackay, which contains the gist of the discourse. [Poem follows]  [signed] F.M.H.

ROBERT McMILLEN - In the death of the subject of this obituary we have another example of the triumph of faith over sin and death.   Robert McMillen was born in the county of Antrim, Ireland, in the year 1807.  When but a youth he gave his heart to God, associated himself with the Church, and became a laborer with its pale.  He was soon appointed to the position of class-leader, which he continued to hold until the hour of his decease.  When about twenty-one years of age he was married to Sarah McMillen, a lady of high Christian virtue, and although of the same name, was no relation of his own.  In the year 1848, with his wife and family of nine children, he came to his country and settled near where he sleeps today.  Only two of this large family, Mrs. Starr, of Norwood, and Mr. Thomas McMillen are left to follow in the footsteps of their now sainted parents.  Father McMillen was a man of earnest piety, very much attached to the cause of God;  very seldom was he absent from the means of grace, and thought no sacrifice too great for the pleasures of the sanctuary.  As a result his light shone brightly, and when the end drew near he was found ready.  His final illness was not protracted.  His pastor, Rev. Mr. Gee, on the eve of his leaving home for a few weeks, in company with the writer, visited him and found him very happy and fully trusting in Jesus.  When for the last time we visited him he was full of joy, notwithstanding great physical weakness;  we sang together that beautiful hymn, “The far away home of the soul,“ when with ecstatic joy he exclaimed, “Glory, glory!”  We then knelt by his bedside and prayed together, feeling, in spite of the gloom, that death had already lost his sting.  A short time afterward he calmly breathed his last in the 78th year of his age.  [signed]  M.

The death of George Barrett McMullen, third son of the late George W. McMullen, leaves a deep sense of personal loss to his many friends and acquaintances.  While at school Barrett McMullen was a great favorite, and as the years went by deep rooted became the love and esteem of every man, woman and child in the town who had the privilege of coming in touch with him.  During the few weeks of his illness, great was the strain felt by all and anxiety was visibly expressed from day to day on the faces of almost every person of his native town.  For some years he was engaged in endeavouring to carry on the business of an extensive farm which had been started by his father, the details of which were diligently attended to by him.  The church, the homes, the musical circles – nay many places not only in the immediate town but in all the county, will feel a void by his removal.  In 1909 he married Miss Herbertha Roblin, only daughter of the Rev. Herbert Roblin of Boston, who with a son and three daughters survive him.  The deep and heartfelt sympathy of the whole town go out to the wife, the mother, sister and four brothers and his immediate relatives.

Death of Mr. J. B. McMullen – The sad news of the sudden death of Mr. James Bates McMullen was announced in Picton by telegram on Saturday morning.  Mr. McMullen had resided at Cairo, Ill., since January last and had even in that short time made many warm friends. He had of late been unusually cheerful and well and no thought of a sudden close to his active life entered the mind of any who knew him.  His son, Frederick B. McMullen, was with him for several days during the  last part of June and had bidden him good-bye on Monday of last week. July 4 (Friday) was a national holiday and Mr. McMullen invited some friends to a picnic on the Missouri side of the river opposite Cairo.  A pleasant day was spent and the party was preparing to return.  One gentleman belated by business had ridden a wheel.  It was suggested that his bicycle be tied to the carriage and he ride back with the others.  Mr. McMullen and he were doing his when the end came, and he sank lifeless to the ground.  There was no struggle, and in a moment he who had been the life of the pleasant party was called away.  It was his oft expressed wish that when his end came, it should be as it was.  The remains were brought to Picton and the funeral took place from the residence of Mr. H. C. McMullen on Tuesday.  The services at the funeral were largely attended by his wide circle of friends and relatives, who bid a long farewell to one whose life was filled with kindness for all who encountered him.  Mr. McMullen was married in 1870 to Mary E. Bogart of Adolphustown, the only daughter of the late L. L. Bogart.  She died in 1873 leaving one son, Frederick Bogart McMullen of Chicago.  In 1891 Mr. McMullen married Mrs. Sylvia Patterson who survives him.  She was with him at his death and in her grief has the profoundest sympathy of all who knew them both, and who can thus appreciated her acute sorrow.   The services at the house were conducted by Rev. S. J. Shorey and N. A. McDiarmid, of Deseronto, the former a brother-in-law of the deceased, and the latter an old friend.  The pallbearers were of his immediate family:  Frederick B. McMullen, his son;  his three brothers, H. C. and George McMullen of Picton, and Roger B. McMullen of Chicago;  and his brothers-in –law, Rev. S. J. Shorey of Picton, and M. C. Bogart of Napanee.  The members of the A.O.U.W. lodge attended in a body and added their impressive ceremony to the usual services at the interment.  The deceased had he lived would have completed his sixty-first year on the twentieth of August.

OBITUARY - MRS. JOHN E. MEEKS

On October 17th, near Croydon, death again visited the neighborhood and took from our midst, Mrs. John E. Meeks.  She was in her sixty-seventh year and had been ill for over a year.  She bore her suffering with great patience, believing God had a better place awaiting her, where no sickness, ever comes.  She loved the beautiful songs of Zion and was often heard with songs on her lips.

The funeral was held in West Plain United Church, her former place of residence.  Service was conducted by the Rev. A. E. Oliver and Rev. Mayor. A very impressive sermon was preached from the text, “Come unto me all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”; a chosen text of the deceased.  The choir sang one of her favourite hymns, “I am coming to Jesus for rest.”  The remains were laid to rest in West Plain cemetery, where her young son was buried, years ago.

She leaves to mourn her loss, a devoted husband and one daughter, Mrs. R. Johnson, who lived with her during her illness, and did all that loving hands could do.  Three grandchildren also mourn the loss of a kind and loving grandmother.

Sympathy is extended to the sorrowing friends.

Hers was a beautiful Christian life. The writer, who knew her from infancy, has for years past frequently remarked and heard others remark that  they never knew of a more sanctimonious person; always cheerful, pleasant and sunny, and ever ready and willing to discharge any Christian or neighborly duty that presented itself. They had recently erected a beautiful new home and fully expected to spend many years of comfort and retirement there, but God's will be done. While sick she received all the loving care a loving husband could give. She was a great worker in the Methodist church and societies, being a member of several, the Women's Institute and also of the Ladies Aid. She leaves to mourn a kind and grief-stricken husband and two sons, Merton and Leonard, and Pearl, a married daughter in Red Deer, Sask. The funeral was held at her late residence, and was largely attended, Rev. Mr. Garrett preaching a very impressive sermon. She was followed from her residence by a large number of sorrowing relatives and friends, the Ladies Aid accompanying in a body. The remains were placed in the vault, there to await interment, not without leaving her mourning friends with an assurance that she has passed from death into life and gone to be with Christ which is far better.

SAMUEL H. MELLOW - On Thursday evening, Aug. 11th , Mr. Samuel H. Mellow, of Sillsville passed suddenly away in his 77th  year. He had been in his usual state of fair health during the day and was spending the evening with Mrs. Mellow, at the home of his son-in-law, Mr. Duncan Hough. After making a passing remark in a cheerful conversation, he laid his head against the back of his chair, a pallor overspread his countenance, and when his side was reached his spirit had fled. Deceased was born in St. Austell, Cornwall, England in 1828, and came to Canada in 1850 when he engaged in teaching at Morven and at Anderson's school house near Napanee. In 1854 he visited his old home, and in 1855, was married to Mary J. Yelland of Penzance, who survives him. Returning in 1855 with his brother, Wm. J. Mellow, of Gretna, also recently married, they were shipwrecked at night at Holyhead, on the coast of Wales, but escaped with most of their belongings though the ship sank almost immediately. On their arrival in Canada the brothers opened a store in Morven and a few years later purchased a tract of land in Kaladar, where they resided for three years, but found transportation too difficult to make farming a success in that then remote township. About forty years ago Samuel H, removed to Sillsville, and a few years later purchased a part of the Glebe of Clergy Reserve land, which has since been his home. Early in his married life deceased joined the Methodist church, of which he has ever since been an earnest and consistent member, and with a few others struggled for many years to maintain an appointment at Sillsville. Immediately after moving to Sillsville he assisted in organizing the Glebe Sunday School, of which he has ever since been the superintendent. During the forty years which have elapsed he has seen his youngest scholars grow to manhood and womanhood and their children take the place in his class which the parents formerly occupied. His kindly nature made him the interested companion and loving friend of children and young people, and he ever strove to inculcate in their minds those gentle thoughts and noble precepts which tend to elevate the mind and enoble the character. On Sunday morning, Aug. 14th, at the hour at which he was accustomed to assemble with his beloved Sunday School his body was borne to the church by his five sons and his son-in-law, preceded by the Sunday School singing his favorite hymn. The casket was covered with flowers, sent by the Sunday School, his children and numerous friends. After an Impressive service by Rev. Mr. Thomas, he was laid at rest. "He was not for God took him." His loving wife and the devoted mother of his children survives him. The other members of the family are Annie J., now Mrs. Duncan Hough, of Sillsville; Dr. Samuel J., of Port Perry; Thomas Y., of Sandhurst; Felix, of Bath; Fannie and Arthur W., at home, and Dr. Frank E. at Sainfield.

Dr. S. J. Mellow –

It is with sincere regret that we record the death of Dr. S. J. Mellow, on Thursday, March 4th, 1925.  He will be greatly missed in his professional capacity and as a citizen.

Dr. Mellow was born September 19th, 1859, at Morven, near Napanee.  After his Public School course, he attended High School at Napanee, took his Normal course, and taught school for three years at Camden and Sillsville, Ont.  He then went to Queen’s University and took his medical course, graduating in 1886.  He first practiced medicine at Bath, Ont., staying there three years.  While residing at Bath, Dr. Mellow married Miss Bertha Louise Armstrong.

Shortly after their marriage, Dr. and Mrs. Mellow moved to Bay City, Michigan, where he remained for five years as a resident doctor.  In 1894 Dr. and Mrs. Mellow moved to Port Perry, where they have since resided.

Since coming to Port Perry, Dr. Mellow has taken an active part in the affairs of the town.  He was in the council for a number of years, and was Reeve for a term.  Perhaps his greatest interest was shown in his service to the Board of Education of which he was a member for some twenty years, and at one time became chairman of that body.  He was also a member of the Library Board, and has been President of the Board since the change from an Association to Public Library, taking a leading part in promoting the building of a War Memorial Library.

While public affairs were of importance, Dr. Mellow’s practice grew steadily and in this field he will be most seriously missed.  It will be difficult for the community to get along without his constant, skilful, and painstaking service.

Dr. Mellow was fond of sport, and his recreations were lawn bowling, tennis and curling.  He maintained his own tennis lawn, and made all tennis lovers welcome in the use of it.  As a member of the Lawn Bowling Club, he leaves a gap hard to fill. 

The outstanding features of Dr. Mellow’s life have been his untiring industry and his sincerity, coupled with excellent judgement of men and affairs.

Dr. Mellow is survived by Mrs. Mellow and their three daughters – Mrs. Merlin Letcher and the Misses Helen and Francis Mellow, also by six brothers and sisters, all of whom were at the unreal – Mrs. D. H. Hough, of Sillsville, Ont.;  Thos. Y. Mellow, Bath, Ont.;  Felix Mellow, of Kingston;  Mrs. W. R. Hough, Sillsville, Ont.’  Arthur W. Mellow, Sillsville, and Dr. F. El Mellow, Uxbridge.

The funeral services were conducted on Saturday afternoon by Rev. Wm. Higgs, and Rev. A. E. Thornley, and were  very largely attended.

The many floral gifts were a striking tribute to the high esteem in which the Doctor was held.  Besides the flowers sent by the immediate relatives, those the tributes of private friends, there were beautiful gifts of flowers from the following bodies, - Port Perry Lawn Bowling Club;  the council of the Corporation of the Village of Port Perry;  Port Perry Board of Education;  Port Perry Public Library Board;  the staff’s of the High and Public Schools, and Ontario County Medical Association.

OBITUARY - Mr. W. J. Mellow, a well known and highly respected resident of Gretna, passed away on Tuesday Jan. 17th, at the home of his son, Charles, after an illness of two and one half years, during much of which time he was a great sufferer, but his suffering was patiently borne.  Deceased was born in St. Austell, Cornwall, England in 1830, and in 1855, came to this country with his wife and his brother, Samuel, and his wife.  On their journey out they were shipwrecked at Holvhead on the Welsh coast, but escaped with most of their belongings.  On their arrival here, deceased and his wife settled at Mount Brydges while  his brother and wife came to Morven, but sent for him owing to illness, so he came to Morven, the brothers keeping a store together there.  After which they purchased land at Kaladar, and lived there, but as transportation was too difficult to make farming profitable, he came to Gretna, where he spent the remainder of this life on the farm, although he followed his trade of a carpenter, he being an efficient carpenter, and joiner, having received a diploma in England.  He petitioned the Government for a post office, which was opened, he being postmaster for about 45 years.  Also, he, with Mr. Wm. Hambly, Mr. Paul Howell, Mr. John N.

OBITUARY – Elizabeth Jane Membery – wife of Fred Membery, Reeve of Adolphustown, who has been suffering for the past ten months from Bright’s disease, passed quietly away about 7 o’clock in the evening, on Saturday, 21st inst..  She was taken ill the last week in July and was examined by some of the best doctors in Picton, Bath and Toronto, and there did not seem to be much difference in their opinion.  They all at first thought that the seat of the disease was a diseased lung, with a little Bright’s disease, and not until February, Dr. Northmore, of Bath, was called and pronounced her disease Bright’s disease of a chronic form.  She was tenderly cared for by her daughters for over six months in bed, one of them being a lately graduated nurse from the Winnipeg General Hospital training school for nurses.  Mrs. Membery was a true Christian of the doctrine of Christ, having joined the Brethren many years ago, when Lord Cecil first came to Adolphustown to preach the Gospel of Christ, and remained a true believer to the end, enduring all her suffering with patience, with a firm belief of meeting her Saviour in Heaven.  The funeral was one of the largest here for years, and she was laid to rest in St. Paul’s churchyard, in a plot taken up next her grandfather’s plot, Major Peter V. Dorland and descendants. A gentle rain fell upon the coffin as she was being borne to the grave.  Mrs. Membery was a lady very highly respected, a genial, kind-hearted friend to the sick and suffering in her neighborhood at all times during the whole of her life. The people of Adolphustown village, as well as her husband and children, have lost their greatest friend.  She was born Oct 30th, 1842 and died May 21st 1898, making her 55 years, 6 months and 22 days.  She was married January 1st 1863.  Mrs. Membery was the daughter of the late Philip Dorland, who died twenty-eight years ago, and granddaughter of Major Peter V. Dorland, and great-granddaughter of Philip Dorland, U.E. Loyalist, who was once elected to Parliament by acclamation, and resigned his seat rather than take an oath the  law required, he being a Quaker in faith.  J.W. Dorland, formerly of the Campbell House, is a brother of Mrs. Membery, and Mrs. W.R. Membery, of the Daly House, Toronto, and Mrs. Glass, of Chicago are sisters, who came to see her on her deathbed and attended her funeral.  James Grace, Sec. And Treas. of the Toronto Street Railway Co., is a first cousin, her father’s sister’s son.  Mrs. Membery’s mother is a sister of the S.W. Trumpour, so long the Treasurer of this Township.  The Dorland family have a splendid reputation for generations back, and a book is now being compiled by John Dorland, Governor of Washington, tracing the family back to the first settlement of New York City, of which two brothers from Germany located, a lot of 200 acres a piece, now the very center of the city, and their descendants are now to be found in nearly every state of the Union, occupying some of the most prominent positions in the country.  The Dorlands are growing few in Adolphustown, sorry to say, only J.W., Samuel and Redford Dorland, Tp. Clerk, and none of these have any heirs or likely to now at their age.  Mrs. Membery had only two children, Mrs. Geo. Armstrong and Ida Membery, the professional nurse.

CORRECTION - Adolphustown, May 21st , '06 - Dear Editor -- In the obituary of the late D. W. Allison in last week's Beaver, an error appears in the maiden name of his widow. She is my sister. We are no relation to the Emburys of this County. My grandfather, Amos Membery came from Dorsetshire, England in the year 1845 and settled in Adolphustown, purchasing the old U.E.L. farm owned by Capt. Mabee, now owned by J. B. Allison, Esq., who also married a sister of mine. My grandfather brought with him from England $30,000.00 in gold -  a good sum to own so far back as 1845. The name "Membery" can be traced as far back in England as the year A.D. 449 in "Dooms Day Book" and a town in Devonshire County, still retains our name, and just outside of the town of Membery are the ruins of a castle still called "Castle Membery". Please correct the error and oblige your sincere friend. (Signed) Fred Membery.

An Old Resident - Giles Membery Dies at Adolphustown - Life on the Sea in Early Days

Giles Membery, who died at his residence, Adolphustown, June 10th, 1896, was born at Dorsetshire, Eng., April 3rd, 1808, and was therefore, at his death, eighty-eight years, two months and seven days old. He was a resident of Adolphustown fifty one years, having come to Adolphustown in 1845, purchased the old Capt. Maybee farm and resided upon it till his death. He was a successful farmer, and the late Philip Ham is authority for stating that Giles Membery was the first man to fall plough for a spring crop in all this part of the country. His success in so doing soon showed others the lesson to follow suit, and today no one would think of doing otherwise for a successful crop. He had seven children: Mrs. H.F. Stone, San Francisco; the late A.M. Membery, ex-reeve and township clerk, Adolphustown; the late Mrs. J.B. Allison; Mrs. W.A. Hammond, jeweler, San Francisco; W.R. Membery, now of the Daly house, Toronto, and Mrs. D.W. Allison, Adolphustown.

Giles Membery's father came to this country in '38 and purchased the old Beeman homestead in S. Fredericksburgh. He also bought each of his children a farm in the United States, of which he had eight, where his grandchildren and great grandchildren are to be found today in prosperity, many of them getting high positions in the government. L. Marsh, once state senator of Michigan, Col. E. Marsh, of Missouri, and A. Marsh, who ran at the last election, State legislature, Watertown democratic ticket, are his grandchildren. Giles Membery's father, Amos Membery was a successful English farmer, coming to this country a wealthy man. In his young days, his father sent him to sea to see if he would like that life better than farming. He left Bristol, Eng., for Bermuda, in the ship Renewal, April, 1800, and it took to October following to return. There were 125 vessels in the fleet, protected by two men-of-war.

The vessels were merchantmen. They lost two vessels by pirates before their return. The name of the flag ship was the "Commodore". The instrument he used "quadrant or quarter circle" for telling the latitude and longitude they were in, is now in Fred Membery's possession, together with the log or diary book of the fleet and their everyday movements on the six months' trip, and contains some very interesting notes. The book is dated 17th April, 1800, and the instrument for telling the latitude and longitude is dated and inscribed "Made by T. Parnell, No. 25 opposite Glasgow wharf, for Andrew Davidson, A.D. 1789." On his return to England he dropped the sea bubble and took to farming with his father, who at the time kept 5,000 sheep on his ranch. Farming in England in those days was done by the biggest guns, and was very remunerative to those engaged in it. Giles Membery belonged to the church of England and was reform in politics. His father was a Presbyterian in religion and a conservative in politics.

Level Crossing Accident Takes Lives of Two People – Couple on Way to Napanee as Train Hits Car –

SILLSVILLE – Nov. 2 – (Special) -   Robert Merritt, 62, of Sillsville, was killed instantly Saturday night at Mooney’s Crossing on the Hamburg Road, two miles south of Napanee, about 7.15 and his wife was fatally injured.  A car in which Mr. and Mrs. Merritt were driving to Napanee from Sillsville was struck by a C.N.R. westbound fast passenger  train.  Poor visibility, because of a heavy downpour of rain, is believed to have been responsible for the accident.  Mrs. Merritt died in the Kingston General Hospital two hours after the accident.

It was later learned that Mr. and Mrs. Merritt were on their way to Napanee with a quilt for the Salvation Army.  Provincial Constable F. W. Barrett was summoned to the scene of the accident and Coroner D. R. Hall conducted an investigation.  It was not certain today if an inquest would be held. 

The late Mr. and Mrs. Merritt resided on a farm at Sillsville, where they had lived since coming to Canada from England 33 years ago.  They were both active in church and charitable organization.

Surviving are a daughter Mrs. Clarence Davis of Adolphustown, and two sons, Percy, on a nearby farm at Sillsville, and Leslie, stationed at Winnipeg with the R.C.A., who was previously with the Bank of Commerce head office at Toronto.

The late Mr. Merritt was a well-known Holstein breeder and showed pure-bred cattle at many of the fairs in this district, including Kingston, Napanee, Belleville and Picton.  He was a member of the South Fredericksburg Board of Education and the township council and the board of stewards of the United Church and he sang in the choir.

Mrs. Merritt was prominent in charitable and church work.  She was a member of the Women’s Association of the United Church and had attended every W. A. annual meeting, including the one held at Wilton 20 years ago.  She had done a great deal of knitting fro war work.

 

FUNERAL HELD FOR VICTIMS OF ACCIDENT –

SILLSVILLE -  Nov. 6 – The funeral service of the late Robert and Ada Merritt who were accidentally killed at Mooney’s Crossing was held at their home “Elmville Farm” on Tuesday afternoon at 2.30.  Rev. Mr. Crawford conducted the service and hymns sung were “Nearer My God to Thee” and “Abide With Me”.

Because their younger son, Leslie, was delayed in his journey at Fort Garry owing to a rock slide north of Lake Superior, he was unable to be present on Tuesday and the committal service was delayed until Wednesday at 2 p.m., when, after a short service at the home, interment was made at Riverview Cemetery, Napanee.  The pall-bearers were Morley Whyte, Harold Hough, Morley Creighton, Bert Windover, Lachlan McLean and J.B.

We have this week to report a sad death in the person of Jacob Meyers. He has resided with his brother for a number of years and was picking pears off a tree in the orchard, when he slipped and fell, injuring the spine and fracturing the skull. Dr. Northmore, of Bath, was summoned and did all that could be done for the sufferer, but without avail. He succumbed to his injuries in a few short hours. Everything that could be done to make a sufferer happy was done. The accident occurred on Wednesday, 1st Sept., and he died on the 2nd, aged 58 years. All that can be said of deceased is that he was a quiet, harmless, inoffensive citizen and a true member of the Methodist church, of which he was a faithful worker. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. Williams, at Bethel church, on Saturday, and the remains were placed in Morven vault. His end was peace.

A wave of deep regret swept over the community of Morven, on Friday, Sept. 26th 1919, when it was learned that Mr. J. B. Miller had succumbed to apoplexy.  Mr. and Mrs. Miller had been at Kingston for the day and returning Thursday evening at 9 o’clock, Mr. Miller went out to his barn.  When he did not return in the usual time, Mrs. Miller became anxious and went in search only to find her husband unconscious.  Help was secured and medical assistance, but to no avail and shortly after midnight death occurred.  The late Jas. B. Miller was born in 1849, on the Miller homestead, three miles east of Napanee, on the York Road, and spent his whole life in this county.  He was one of a family of eight, of which only two sisters survive, Mrs. Fred Kayler, Winnipeg, and Mrs. Chas Kayler of Napanee.  In 1868 he married Sarah Ellen Perry, of Morven and for forty-one years they have fought life’s battles and met life’s joys together.  Only one child was born to their home Roy, who died in early childhood.  Mrs. Miller has the deepest sympathy of a large circle of friends in the hour of her sorrow.  For the last thirty-six years Mr. Miller has lived in his late residence, which has ever been the centre of friendship and hospitality.  Forty years ago Mr. Miller became identified with the Methodist Church and has ever since been an official and closely identified with its activities.  At the time of death he was a Trustee and member of the Official Board at Morven.  The funeral was on Sunday at the Brick Church.  Rev. Mr. Wickett, Tyrone, and Rev. Mr. Seymour, of Bath, assisted the Pastor.  The large congregation of friends present was sufficient evidence of the esteem in which Mr. Miller was held.  No words of eulogy is necessary.  The highest tribute that can be paid to any man is the memory that is cherished by those who knew and loved him.

On Thursday, the 23rd inst. the coroner was called to view the body of a man by the name of John Miller who fell down dead in the street - It seems that Mr. Miller had come from Ernest Town, his place of residence, the day previous, and early on Thursday morning, feeling himself unwell had procured some medicine which he did not take however, and had proceeded down St--- Street as far as Mr Dowling’s when he fell down dead immediately opposite the door.  And would it be believed, from the general humane character of the inhabitants of Kingston, that his body was permitted to lie in the street from six till 12 o’clock?  Yet it is nevertheless true - Jury’s verdict, visitation of God.  Reader!  what a warning, to be prepared to meet your God at any moment.

The Late J.S. Miller

Our translated brother was born in Adolphustown in march, 1841, and had passed his 64th year at the time of his death, which event took place at the family residence, "Prospect Hill", No. 11, North Fredericksburgh, Nov. 9th. Deceased married for his first wife Miss M.A. Ruttan, who was early taken from his side, in the 24th year of their married life. She left one son, James Herbert Miller, who still survives. Deceased was the senior son of Wm. R. Miller and his wife Lucy Wagar, both of whom are numbered among the vanished pioneers. On May 2d, 1893, he married Mrs. M.A. Wagar. The sorrowing widow now for the second time mourns the loss of the staff and stay of this life. The second family consists of one daughter and one son, both of tender years. Her grown daughter, Lottie Wagar, is still at home. The departed was converted to God some twenty-five years ago and was identified with the Methodist Church until he was promoted to the services of the Church Triumphant. For many years he filled with credit some of the highest offices in the gift of the church of his choice. In politics he was a loyal Liberal and was some time member of the council of this old historic township. In business he was ever faithful and honest and succeeded beyond the average in regard to this world's good. The funeral services were conducted by his pastor, Rev. Wesley Down, of Bay Circuit. A very impressive service was held in the Bethany church, when a timely and effective sermon was preached to one of the most representative audiences ever assembled in the church. The whole community joins in sympathy with the sorrowing family.

Kitty

(nee Hicks)

 

Mrs. Harry Miller

After an illness of years, Mrs. H. Miller passed to her eternal reward on Saturday, January 6th, at Gravenhurst. Mrs. Miller was the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Hicks, of North Fredericksburgh, and about fourteen years ago was united in marriage to Mr. Harry Miller. For a number of years they had resided in Oshawa, but during her illness she had spent months at her home at Bethany.

Mrs. Miller who was so often known as 'Kitty' Hicks, was a very pleasing personality and during the years of her suffering she was always patient and hopeful that she might become strong again. She was an affectionate daughter, a devoted wife and a loving mother.

The funeral service was held on Monday, January 8th, in Bethany United Church. Rev. J.E. Beckel, minister of the Bay Circuit, had charge of the service. Rev. T.H.P. Anderson of Newburgh, who had performed the marriage ceremony years ago, was present and preached the funeral sermon. The choir sang several comforting messages of song. The floral tributes and the crowded church were evidences of the esteem in which the deceased was held by friends and relatives. Interment was made in Bethany Cemetery.

She leaves to mourn her loss, her father and mother, her husband, two children, Helen and Mary, and five brothers, Ben and James of North Fredericksburgh, Joseph of Detroit, Walter of New Ontario, and George of British Columbia. Another brother died in the days of the world war.

Miller,

Matthew

 

It is with no ordinary degree of regret that we notice the death of the Rev. Matthew Miller, who was drowned in the Bay of Quinte on Saturday, the 15th instant.

It is not quite two years since Mr. Miller was appointed, by the Glasgow Colonial Society, a Missionary to this province, with instructions, on his arrival in the country, to place himself under the direction of the Synod of Canada.  In this capacity he travelled from one extremity of the Province to the other, and traversed the wilderness in various directions, labouring faithfully and diligently for the good of his fellow men.  He was subsequently ordained to the pastoral charge of the two Presbyterian Congregations of Cobourg and Colborne, making the latter his usual place of residence.

He lately went on a visit to the Bathurst District, and on his return passed through Kingston on Friday, the day before he was lost.  Contrary to the wish of some of his friends in Kingston, and even to his own expressed intention, he was tempted, by the more easy and expeditious mode of travelling on the ice, to venture upon it, and finding it so much more pleasant that dragging heavily and slowly over the land, he proceeded as far as the Rev. Robert McDowall's in Fredericksburgh, where he arrived in safety and  remained for the night.  Here, Mr. McDowall, after having endeavoured without success to divert him from his purpose of proceeding farther on the ice, gave him written instructions how to travel so as to avoid the dangerous places.  The morning of the Saturday proving rainy, Mr. McDowall again attempted to dissuade him from taking the ice, but the difficulties of the land travelling now hourly  increasing, he was tempted to persist in his original intention, and set out on the ice as before.  The precise course he pursued can only be guessed at, but it would seem that he very soon altogether deviated from the instructions he had received, and took the direction of some of the most unsafe places in the whole Bay, when he soon came to his end off Trumpour's Point. as appears by his watch having stopped at a quarter past 9 o'clock.  The place where he was found was quite open, but, as we have said, it was raining at the time, and there being water on the surface of the ice, the opening would no doubt be undistinguishable by him until he found himself suddenly precipitated into the water.  The place being very lonely, it was not until the evening of the following day that the melancholy occurrence was known, when part of the Sleigh was seen above the water, leading to the supposition that someone had been lost.  Search was immediately made, and the body of a stranger found in about ten feet water, and conveyed to the house of Mr. John Trumpour.  Mr. Trumpour gave notice to Samuel Casey, Esq., who, with very kind and humane considerations, lost no time in conveying the intelligence of this sad event to Kingston and Colborne, where, from some papers found  on the person of the deceased, Mr. Casey rightly conjectured that his friends and place of residence would be discovered.  On Monday evening the rumour of a person having been lost in the ice reached Mr. McDowall, who, as soon as he ascertained that it was the Rev. Mr. Miller, hastened with Mrs. McDowall, to the spot, where lay the remains of their late friend, and united in their exertion with those other humane and kind hearted individuals whom we have mentioned, in making the necessary preparations for the decent interment of the deceased.  The Rev. M. Machar, on the news of this melancholy event being communicated to him on Tuesday morning, set out for Adolphustown, and arriving at Mr. Trumpour's after midnight, has the satisfaction, a mournful one it is true, of seeing that every necessary preparation had been made for the funeral of his lamented Brother in the Ministry.  On Wednesday morning, he attended his remains to the place of interment, in the Old Burial Ground at Adolphustown, a place, decently enclosed, where is deposited the dust of some of the earliest and most respectable settlers in the Township, and where too, may now be seen, the Stranger's grave.

 

We are requested to announce that the remains of the much lamented Rev. Mr. Miller, whose melancholy fate has excited such universal sympathy, having been removed from Adolphustown, will arrive here on Saturday next, for re-interment in the new Presbyterian Church of this place;   also, that on Sunday next, a suitable funeral sermon will be delivered at the usual place of meeting, by the Rev. Mr. Rogers, of Peterboro'. [Cobourg Star, 5th March]

 

On Saturday night last, the Rev. Matthew Miller, Minister of the Scotch church at Cobourg, while crossing from Adolphustown to the stone mills, Marysburgh, with his horse and sleigh, broke through the ice, off Trumpour’s Point, and unfortunately, all perished.  His body and the horse were found the next morning.  It would appear that the accident occurred at half past ten o’clock, from the fact that his watch, which was found on his person, stopped at that hour.  Mr. Miller was highly esteemed fro his superior talents, unassuming manners, and religious life.  The untimely removal of such men is a public as well as private loss.

Horrible Murder - On the 4th instant, a person of the name of James Milligan, of Fredericksburgh, murdered his wife under circumstances of singular brutality. The unfortunate woman was about to be confined, and in the absence of the female attending upon her, she was assaulted by her husband, while under the influence of liquor, and the child taken from her in a manner altogether revolting. She survived about two hours. Milligan was committed to the District Gaol here this morning to stand his trial at the approaching Assizes. We learn that the mother and child were buried on the 6th and what appears to us singular is that Milligan was not apprehended till the 22d inst. It appears also very strange that there was no Coroner's Inquest held over the bodies.

Successful Businessman and Former Fire Chief Frank Mills Died Monday -

Franklin Boyce Mills, 66, a lifelong resident of Napanee and successful retired businessman died Monday morning in Kingston General Hospital.  Mr. Mills had recently undergone an operation and did not recover from it before he was stricken with a heart attack last Friday.  The funeral is being held Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 p.m., at Trinity United Church.

He was the fire chief in Napanee from 1945 until 1959 and before that had been a member of the fire department from 1919.  He leaves his wife, the former Evelyn McKim and a son, Dr. Myron S. Mills, as well as one grandchild.

He retired officially from business in January 1959 when his company, the M. B. Mills Co., and Mills Chick Hatchery were sold to Lasher’s Feed and Seeds Limited  He continued to work that spring and assisted this spring as well in the hatchery.  In April of last year he was honored by the Napanee Fire Department when he retired as volunteer chief.

Born at Napanee, he was the son of the late Myron B. Mills and received his early education here.  Later he graduated form the New York Electrical School in New York City, as an electrician.  When World War I was on, he was chief electrician at the shore docks at Ashtabula, Ohio.

He returned home and enlisted with the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery which was mustered across the country and trained at New Westminster, B. C.  He shipped with the cavalry and horses to serve with the army of occupation at Valivostock, Russia, but when the ship was 500 miles out to sea, it was found to be unseaworthy and the contingent was returned to Canada.

Demobilized at Pembroke, Ont., he returned to Napanee where he served with the Seymour Electric Co., the predecessor of Napanee Public Utilities Commission.  As an electrician he wired a large number of the older houses in Napanee. 

Leaving the Seymour Company he went into business with his father.  The M. B. Mills Co. was originally a taxidermy business and later conducted a carriage business.  They also manufactured tents and awnings.

The company purchased a building at the foot of John Street on the present location of the Lennox and Addington Mutual Fire Insurance Co., and an extensive feed business was built up.

Mr. Mills’ father died in 1932, and he carried on, entering the chick hatching business.  Fire destroyed the firm’s premises in 1947 and they purchased the Wiseman garage building at the corner of Centre and Bridge streets.  Lorne Smart, reeve of Napanee and the late Hugh Brennan were active in the company through these years.  It was sold to Lasher’s Feed and Seed Limited in January 1959.  That building was sold this year to the Sun Oil Co., and has since been torn down.

Mr. Mills was an active member of Trinity United Church and a member of the session.  At one time he was a member of the Independent Order of Oddfellows in Napanee.

He was a sailing enthusiast in his younger years, sailing with his father on the Dolphin, taking cruising parties through the Bay of Quinte.  His father won a number of sailing races as well with his son as crew member.

During the later years of his life, Mrs. Mills and others friends accompanied him on motor trips all over the north American continent.  He was an active Rotarian and served as president of the Napanee Club in 1951 and 1952, succeeding to office shortly after the death of the late Wallace Roy just after Mr. Roy’s term had commenced and continuing for another year.  He had been planning to attend the Rotary International convention in Tokio, Japan, next year.

The funeral is being held on Wednesday afternoon from Trinity United Church conducted by Rev. W. K. Pace, minister of the church and Rev. W. L. Simmons, pastor of the Church of St. Mary Magdalene Anglican church, his very good friend and neighbor at his home on Bridge street West.

In addition to Mrs. Mills and his son he leaves a brother, George, of Duncan, B. C., and two sisters, Mrs. W. H. Truscott (Mabel), and Mrs. H. W. Smith (Carmen) of Napanee.
