Templeton,

Janet

 

JANET TEMPLETON – Died, at Napanee, on Saturday morning, 11th February, Janet Templeton, relict of the late Wm. Templeton, age 72 years.  The deceased lady was one of the oldest residents of the town, having lived here nearly half a century.  She was born near Perth in the county of Lanark of an old Scotch family.  Her father, James McIlquham, came from Scotland to Canada about 1816 and settled near Perth, then but a hamlet in the forest.  Here he purchased land and made a home on the banks of the Mississippi, where the deceased was born and spent her early years.  She was married to Wm. Templeton in 1844, and immediately removed to Napanee, where her husband had previously commenced business as  a tanner.  The town then consisted chiefly of what is now known as Clarksville, little besides the Cartwright Grist Mill being within the town as it now exists.  Her husband died in 1852, leaving the young wife with three children surviving.  She had many trials and struggles through the next few years, but never lost courage or patience.  Early in life she became a member of the Presbyterian church to which all her family belong, and continued through her whole life an active worker in the cause of Christ,.  Her life was indeed most pure and blameless and affords a bright example of Christian virtue.  Always charitable, kind and considerate for others, her counsel was constantly sought in church matters, and her loss will be much felt by her former associates.  Her illness dates [illegible line]  her recovery until Wednesday of last week when she was taken suddenly worse, and quietly passed away on Saturday morning, respected by all who knew her, and beloved by all who enjoyed her friendship.  Only two children survive her, W. Templeton, the respected publisher of our contemporary the “Beaver, and Mrs. D. H. Preston, another son, James, having predeceased her some twenty years.  The funeral services were conducted by Rev. D. McEachren, pastor of the Presbyterian church and many of the large number present were moved to tears by his touching references to the many virtues of the deceased.  The Ladies’ Aid of the Presbyterian Church purchased a very handsome wreath in Kingston as a floral tribute.

Templeton,

William

 

It is with feelings of regret and a deep sense of loss that we are called upon to chronicle the death of Mr. Wm. Templeton, late editor and proprietor of this paper, which occurred on Tuesday morning, 3d March, after a brief illness.  Three weeks ago today deceased, who was not feeling as well as usual, left the office and went home.  The first week of his illness he seemed to improve at times and no alarming symptoms developed until the following week, when he sank rapidly and passed peacefully away to his reward, after having spent a very successful and useful life.  The best of medical skill was obtained, doctors from Montreal and Kingston being in attendance with the local profession, and all that loving hands and hearts could do was of no avail  Mr. Templeton was born in Napanee on the 27th November, 1848, and with the exception of a few years, has spent his whole life in our midst. When about seventeen years of age he became an apprentice to the printing art, shortly after entering The Napanee Express as journeyman.  Afterwards he spent a term in offices in Montreal, Toronto and New York, where he completed his course at the business and was satisfied to return to his boyhood home.    In partnership with Rm. Edw. Stevenson, he purchased The Beaver.  At a later date Mr. Geo. M. Beeman and Mr. W.C. Scott were associated with him in the office.  In 1892, Mr. Templeton purchased the plant and has conducted it ever since. So successful has his business career been that The Beaver is a welcome weekly visitor into almost every home in the town and county, and is recognized as one of the foremost journals of its class, all due to his progressive spirit and business ability. Deceased was closely identified with the general social interests of the community.  He was a member of the Royal Arch Masons, A.O.U.W., I.O.O.F., about twenty years has been United States Consul at Napanee.  For a number of years he was also a valued member of the Board of Education. His death spells a distinct loss for the whole community, especially for the Presbyterian church, of which he had long been a devoted member.  He was an Elder of the church, and Clerk of the Session.  Twenty-nine years ago he was united in marriage to Miss Addie Perry, who, together with five children are left to mourn the loss of a kind and loving husband and father. The children are:  Wm. A. and Janet, at home;  Mrs. J. G. VanEvery, Owen Sound;  Dr. Chas P. Templeton and Mrs. J. M. McIntosh, Brandon, Man., who were all with him at the last.  Mrs. D. H. Preston, a sister, also survives him.  A shadow of gloom was cast over the whole town.  His brother curlers closed the rink all week, and on Thursday afternoon the schools were all closed.  Floral wreaths, bouquets and flowers in profusion covered the casket and room.  The funeral at the home on Thursday afternoon was attended by a large concourse of friends and acquaintances from near and far, showing the respect and esteem in which he was held by all.  The service was conducted by his pastor, Rev. J. R. Conn, assisted by Rev. W. H. Emsley, after which the beautiful burial service of the masons, who had charge of the funeral, was read at the vault.  His smiling greeting will be greatly missed, not only in the home, but at the office and on the street.  His friends were legion, ad expressions of sorrow an regret are heard on every hand.  The bearers were Messrs. J. L. Boyes, W. H. Boyle, J. W. Robinson, J. J. Flach, F. F. Miller, and W. T. Gibbard.

THIBAULT – In Picton, Sunday, Sept 22 1918, Angus Thibault, aged 40 years.

 

ANGUS THIBAULT – The news of the death of Angus Thibault came as a great shock to his many friends in Picton when they learned of his demise early on Sunday morning last.  Very few knew of his illness, which was only of some three days duration.  He was in attendance at the county fair, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with his exhibit of Maxwell and Studebaker cars.  On Thursday afternoon he left the fair grounds complaining of feeling ill but his sickness was not considered serious until shortly before his death.  During Saturday night he rapidly grew worse and expired about seven o’clock Sunday morning, aged 40 years.  Angus Thibault will be greatly missed.  For some years past he has conducted the business of auctioneer and in this way has become widely known all over the county of Prince Edward. He has also conducted many sales in Adolphustown and vicinity.  As an auctioneer he was not only popular, but he also had the respect and confidence of the public generally.  He had a well deserved reputation for fair dealing and his genial friendly manner made him friends everywhere.  For the last two or three years he had added the agency of the Maxwell motor cars to his business and only recently had also taken the local Studebaker agency.  At the time of his death Mr. Thibault was Deputy Reeve of the Town of Picton.  This was his second term in this position.  He had previously held the position of councillor in the town and was also some years ago a member of the Municipal Council of the township of Hallowell.  The deceased was an only son of Mr. Ed. Thibault of Picton, and a nephew of Messrs. William Thibault of Picton and George of Athol.  His wife who survives him was a Miss Head. The funeral service was held at his late residence, Agnes St., Tuesday afternoon, when many of his friends and acquaintances assembled to do honor to his memory.  The Maxwell motor Co. of Windsor, Ont. Was represented at the funeral by Mr. F. T. Hodgins, of Toronto.  The beautiful floral design Gates Afar, was sent by the Maxwell Co.  The many other floral offerings gave eloquent testimony to the high regard in which he was held and the sympathy felt toward his surviving relatives.  Rev. Alfred Brown conducted the service.  The pall bearers were Warden Mallory, Mayor Colliver, councillors R.H. Calnan, Albert Powers, M.R. Allison and D.R. Ellsworth.  Interment took place at Cherry Valley Cemetery under the auspices of the I.O.O.F. of which deceased was a member.

The following particulars relative to a late transaction have been related to us on such authority that we do not hesitate in making them public;  at the same time we express our astonishment that such a transaction should have been kept so long in the dark.

Shortly before the April Sessions, the body of a child was found in the Napanee River near its mouth.  An inquest was held, and after the examination of Dr. Allen of Napanee, and other witnesses, the Jury returned a verdict of “wilful murder against some person or persons unknown.  The same afternoon after interring the corpse, the Coroner and part of the Jury returned to the village of Napanee, and some whispers being current, that a shoemaker’s wife of the name of Thomson had been unknown to her husband (to whom she had been married but three weeks,) delivered of an infant, which infant was spirited away, some enquiries were made which led to the examination of a Dr. Wallen (not Dr. Allen) before the Coroner and another magistrate, and it came out, the Dr. Wallen had attended the woman in question, and had delivered her of a dead child, which he had put under the ice in the river.  Some other witnesses were examined, but no farther proceedings taken.  The singularity attending this affair is, that the woman should have been delivered of a child unknown to her husband, and that the medical attendant should have taken upon himself the task of grave-digger.

JAMIMA TINDALL -

The subject of this short memoir was the second daughter of Benjamin and Mary Jane Tindall.  She commenced her earthly pilgrimage in the township of Grey, county of Huron, Ontario, on the 6th day of January, 1866.

Very early in life she entered the Sabbath school, and never left it until compelled to by sickness, which ended in death.  To be found in the class gave her much pleasure.  And as soon as it was thought prudent she was raised to the position of teacher - a position she filled with credit to herself, advantage to her class, and satisfaction to all concerned.  The manner in which she attended to her work, the interest she displayed and her success gave me and others much pleasure. 

She was led to accept Christ as her Saviour when she was ten years of age;  and when she gave her heart to God she gave herself to the Church.  And from that day  to the day that she joined the blood-washed company and her dear father before the throne, she was a consistent member of the Methodist Church.  I never saw a thing heard a word, or knew an action not in harmony with Bible truth.  She was a good, faithful, successful missionary collector.  But her work is done (and well done) the journey of life is ended and she has entered into rest.

Her death took place August 12th, 1886, and on the 14th, her remains were laid to rest near her father.  On Sabbath afternoon the writer preached to a very large congregation from Jer. xv. 9  “She hath given up the ghost;  her sun is gone down while it was yet day.”  Some people do their work soon, and well, and early go to rest.  May the reader and writer meet her on the ever green shore.   RICHARD PAUL

CROSSED THE DARK RIVER -  Picton Gazette – The death of Mr. Almon C. Tobey occurred at the family residence, west Main street, at an early hour on Monday morning, 10th June.  The evening previous he was out walking about the house with his daughter, in his apparent usual health, when he was suddenly taken with a fainting spell, followed by convulsive vomiting, which ended his life about one o’clock.  About two years ago he had a severe stroke from which he never recovered, gradually growing worse until death.  He was a  great sufferer, but bore it patiently to the end.  The deceased came to Picton from Napanee about twenty odd years ago, engaging in the jewellery business, and was one of our most affable and successful business men.  He was twice married – his first wife being Miss Minnie Haight, the second Miss Ola Hurlburt.  Two children by his first wife – Raymond and Zeita – survive him to mourn the loss of a kind and loving father.   Deceased was 51 years of age.  The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon at 4 o’clock. The I.O Foresters, of which deceased was a member, attended in a body.

THE LATE MRS. TOWNLEY -

The mortal remains of this deeply respected lady, late wife of the Rev. Adam Townley, D.D., Canon of Huron Cathedral, and Incumbent of St. James Church in this town, who departed this life, on Monday evening, 3rd April, surrounded by her husband, her Son and his Wife and several other friends - were deposited (until the Church of England Cemetery is secured and prepared) close by the Chancel of St. James’ Church, on the Thursday following.

The coffin, which was covered with purple velveteen, had a large floriated oak Cross fastened on the lid, and with its beautiful Cross and Wreath of flowers also, which were all put in the grave, spoke of those bright hopes which were more than comforting to the sorrows of the survivors.  The bearers were Messrs. Geo. Stanton, J. A. Penton, Thos. Ryall, F. H. Haycock, Thos Clark and W. C. Jones.  The mourners were - the whole Parish! - but especially her bereaved Husband, her Son, the Rev. C. E. Thomson, two of her Grandsons; her brother in law, Mr. A. B. Townley, and her nephew, Mr. H. C. Thomson; Dean Boomer, Archdeacon Marsh, Canon Nelles, Revds W. S. Darling, Rural Dean Holland, E. E. Newman and A. Anthony, besides which a long list of other friends, also attended.

The body was carried by the bearers from the house to the Chancel of the Church, which with the Clergyman’s pew, &c., was deeply draped in black - and thence to the Grave close adjoining.  The service was effectively read by the Revds Dean Boomer, H. Holland, and W. S. Darling - the last of whom also delivered a touching address, as being the oldest clerical friend of the deceased, who was present.  The Choir also rendered their affectionate aid.  It is needless to say that the Church was very full, alike from strong regard to Mrs. Townley and genuine sympathy with her sorrowing husband.  Indeed we are pleased, though not surprised, to learn that sympathy, both at home, and by letter, has been overflowingly expressed with the lonely grief of our, no longer young, but highly respected Rector;  very many old friends sending their deep expressions of regret at being unable to be present, from a mistake regarding the time and place of burial, or from previous engagements. Among them were the Bishops of Huron, N---- and Toronto, and a letter from Mr. -----, the Bishop of Algoma being ------.

In our deceased friend we lose another of those ancient Canadian landmarks that link the present with the past.  Mrs.  Elizabeth Townley was the only daughter of the late Wm. Ruttan, Esq., of the Bay of Quinte, and officer in the British Army of the United States during the Revolutionary War, who, at its close, came with his young wife, his elder brother, Captain Ruttan, and other United Empire Loyalists to Canada, settling at once on the Bay of Quinte, where he and his wife died in ripe old age.  Their daughter, our late deceased friend, was born October 27th, 1800.  She was married at a very early age to Hugh C. Thomson, Esq., of Kingston, Member of the Provincial Parliament, for Frontenac, the father of her remaining son, the Rev. C. E. Thomson, M.A., Rector of Elora, diocese of Niagara, and Rural Dean.  Mrs. Thomson was left a widow in the prime of life, and was married to her now sorrowing husband, the Rev. Dr. Townley, the 20th of April, 1837.

For energy of character, strong conscientiousness and an earnest effort to walk godly in Christ Jesus, Mrs. Townley, was, we know, highly distinguished.  Take her moral, mental and Christian characteristics all in all, and we really think that we are more than commonly justified in saying:

“We ne’er shall look upon her like again.”  And, notwithstanding that she was spared to so ripe and age (upwards of 75 years) and departed so calmly and with such bright prospects beyond, yet we cannot withhold our sincere sympathies from her bereaved Husband and Son, and other deeply attached friends, in this their irreparable loss.

OBITUARY – Samuel Dorland Trumpour – Early Sunday morning last, All Saints’ Day, Samuel Dorland Trumpour, well known to the citizens of Napanee, was most peacefully called from his residence in Adolphustown to enter the fold of the church at rest.  The funeral was held the following Tuesday at St. Alban’s Church, the Rector, Rev. W. Roberts, Mus. Doc., conducting the service.  The deceased was born in Adolphustown being a descendant of the old Trumpour and Dorland families, which originally of Dutch extraction, lived in New York State until after the Revolutionary War, and then came to Canada among the pioneer U.E. Loyalists.  Mr. Trumpour in earlier life lived in Prince Edward County, and was for fifteen years a resident of Napanee;  the remainder of his life was spent in Adolphustown.  He was a lifelong supporter of the conservative party, and is among a very few who can lay claim to the distinction of having gone to school with Sir John A Macdonald.  In religion the deceased worshipped in the old Quaker meeting house, which still stands on the shores of Hay Bay, but on the breaking up of the Quakers as a distinct sect, he transferred his allegiance to the Church of England.  Mr. Trumpour was of a retiring disposition;  he never sought public office or publicity in any way.  Industry was the keynote of his character, and by this means he amassed considerable property.  He served in the Fenian Raids in 1866 and was among those of the surviving veterans who received medals in recognitions of their services.  Until the last few years he had enjoyed the best of health, having seldom suffered a day of illness.  In 1870, he married a daughter of the late Joseph Losee, who still survives him.  He also leaves three children, Mrs. W. S. Wannamaker, of Ameliasburgh;  Herbert a prosperous and progressive farmer in Adolphustown, and Harry, studying for the ministry at Wycliffe College, Toronto, and an honor graduate of the University of Toronto.

[*NOTE - In original, spelling is “Trumpom”]

MRS. SARAH TRUMPOUR -  Mrs. Sarah Trumpour, whose maiden name was Bowers, was born in the township of Sophiasburg, Prince Edward county, Ont., in the year 1817.  She was converted to God in early life, and united with the Wesleyan Church, her after Christian life affording undoubted evidence of the genuine change grace had wrought in her.  In after years, in her married life she was happy, for her husband was a partner of the same like precious faith.  Settling  in the township of Hillier, she became a member of the Methodist Society at Wellington.  She held correct views of the higher Christian life and being an ardent lover of ‘scriptural holiness,’ as taught by the Methodist church, she always gave unwavering testimony of the fact, in her own experience, that the blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth from all sin.   This grace made her active in Christian service, exemplary in Christian life and character, and in ripeness and maturity of  Christian experience to be called in at true sense, “a mother in Israel.”  Towards the close of life a paralytic stroke partially disabled her for work, although recovering therefrom to a certain extent yet it left a sense of feebleness.  For two or three years prior to her death she resided with her youngest son in Bloomfield, and united with Methodist Society in that place.  For a time during the past winter she experienced a sense of more than ordinary weakness, which proved to be the token of approaching dissolution.  On the morning of Feb. 8th, 1886, while reclining to seek repose, and saying to the family as her last utterance and dying testimony, “I am going to sleep with Jesus,”  she peacefully fell asleep in Christ, in the 69th year of her age.  Her happy spirit rests forever with the lord.  Her remains were interred in the burying ground at Wellington by the side of her husband.  May the family follow their beloved Christian parents, and fulfil all their promises to meet them in that heavenly home beyond.  [signed] W.

Tupper,

Rev. Reuben E.

 

REV. REUBEN E. TUPPER -

Rev. Reuben E. Tupper was born in the county of Leeds, on the 12th of December, 1809.  When about nine years of age he yielded to the Spirit’s pleading and was led to trust in Jesus Christ for salvation.  Much of the cheerful Christian experience and loving fidelity of his later years may be traced to his early acceptance of Christ as his Saviour and consecration to his service. 

In 1836, in response to the Master’s call, he engaged in the work of the Christian ministry, but after one year of service he was compelled, on account of ill health to locate for three years.  Returning to the work, after the usual probationary term he was received into full connexion and ordained at the Conference of 1843.  Never possessing a vigorous constitution, he was obliged in 1855 to superannuate, in which relation he remained for seven years.

Returning to the work in 1862, he spent about five years in faithful circuit service, followed by four or five years in charge of Mount Elgin Industrial School.  He again superannuated in 1871.  Three years more of rest, one of service at Mount Brydges, eleven of superannuation at London, and Bro. Tupper exchanged a changeful for the changeless life.  On Sunday, March 7th, after a brief illness, he entered the rest that remaineth.

As a man Bro. Tupper was respected and beloved.  His quiet and often quaint demeanor, his kindly spirit and benevolent nature, won for him not only a very desirable place in private friendship, but also a large share of public esteem.

As a Christian he enjoyed a steady and constantly increasing wealth of happy experience.  He had a strong love and deep reverence for the Word of God, and a growing attachment to the people of God.  Their fellowship was his joy and delight.  His zeal for the peace and prosperity of Zion was very marked.  Her services to him were sweet and sacred.  With great gladness of soul he was often heard singing those beautiful lines:

“Beyond my highest joy,

I prize her heavenly ways,

Her sweet communion solemn vows,

Her hymns of love and praise.”

As a minister, Brother Tupper was called and chosen and faithful.  Though subject to much physical infirmity, sufficient to dishearten many yet such were his love and zeal for the work to which he was called, that he never hesitated regarding the call of duty, but did his work cheerfully and to the best of his ability.

On the 21st of February he attended church service for the last time, saying at its close, “The Lord send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion.”

On the following Saturday he was taken ill, without any expectation of recovery on his part.  The thought of speedy removal did not disturb his mind.  His trust in Jesus was unshaken.  He richly enjoyed the rest of faith, and rejoiced in strong assurance and hope of the rest of heaven.

After one week’s illness he passed away in the triumph of Christian faith.  He “was not, for God took him.”    R.J. TRELEAVEN

Hugh Turner Killed – A very shocking accident occurred at Martin and Sayers’ flouring mills, Glenora, on Tuesday morning.  Hugh Turner was caught in a  belt and whirled around a shaft to instant death.  Turner was working in the mill on the ground floor and had been applying some belt dressing to a belt running on a pulley on the main shaft, which is about shoulder high.  It is supposed his hand went too near the pulley and was drawn in.  The unfortunate man was whirled around the shaft at a terrific speed, one belt breaking and winding his left arm tight to the pulley.  He made one cry for help, but when Mr. Martin, who was not far from him arrived, and stopped the machinery, all was over.  Turner was dead.  The left arm was torn from the socket and almost severed from the body, both feet were mashed to a pulp unrecognizable as feet.  There was no need of a doctor.  Coroner Whiteman went down Wednesday morning and issued a burial certificate.  The funeral took place (today) Thursday at 10 o’clock.  T. Hugh Turner was a son of Mr. Thomas Turner of Black Creek, formerly of Picton, he was twenty-three years old and had been married twice.  He got his first wife in Lennox County and for his second wife he married a Shaw of Picton, only about six weeks ago.  He was a hard working, industrious man and he and his wife were just preparing to go keeping house at Glenora, where he expected to have steady employment.

OBITUARY - John W. Unger -

Daniel Unger, who in pre-union days, was an ordained deacon in the Methodist Episcopal Church, shortly after his marriage settled in South Fredericksburgh, on the farm which has since become the Unger homestead.  There was born on Sept. 13th, 1846, a son, who was baptized John Wesley.  He had four brothers and three sisters.  As a young man he, having the ministry in view, studied for some time in Albert College.  On account of ill health he had to abandon that calling.  He was a life long member of Grace Methodist Church, of which church he was one of the oldest trustees and remained an official until his death.  His mind was well stored with the Holy Scriptures, and many will not soon forget his recitations of long passages in the Quarterly Fellowship meetings.

During the past year Time’s grim reaper has been very active in the Unger family.  Only about a year ago Nathan was called to go, about a month ago, Nelson followed, and on Feb. 11th, John was summoned to meet his two brothers on the other shore.  His wife and two daughters, Ethel and  Lilly, predeceased him many years.  He leaves to mourn his loss three sons, Schuyler in the West, Edison in Montreal, Gerald on the homestead;  and two daughters, Mrs. Vaughn, of Ottawa, and Miss Ella, of Fall River, Mass.  A good citizen, a kind father and a Christian gentleman has left us.

His funeral, in charge of his Pastor, Rev. W. P. Rogers, took place on Sunday, the 13th, in Grace Church.  the remains were placed in the Riverview vault.

OBITUARY - At Deseronto, on Wednesday, 24th March, 1915, at 8 p.m., at the age of 79 years, 7 months and 11 days, Mr. Gordon D. G. Valleau fell asleep in Jesus.  Mr. Valleau was converted to God when a boy and had been a consistent member of the Methodist Church up until his departure.  During all those years he walked with God closely.  Bro. Valleau loved to serve his Master.  In 1859, he gave himself up to the ministry and was a grand local preacher, and was an instrument in God’s hands of bringing many souls to seek a higher and nobler life.  He conducted a great many revivals at Mount Pleasant and Selby.  For the past few years he had been unable to attend the church he dearly loved as often as he would like, but he was always willing to lend a helping hand to any who needed help and to give comforting and cheering words to any in trouble.  He was a man very highly appreciated and respected by all who knew him;  a good man in the church and a loving and affectionate husband and father in the home.  He leaves to mourn his loss a loving wife and three sons, the two eldest residing at Gananoque, and Gordon at home with his mother; also two brothers, William, of Saskatchewan, and George W., of Selby.  One brother passed away on the 13th of March, 1915, at California.  Still we sorrow not as those who have no hope, for his life and testimony is a benediction still and his family shall surely call him blessed as they recall his simple faith and trust in Christ.  We commit his body to the dearth in a sure and certain hope of a part in the first resurrection.  “Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his.”

Valleau,

Willet

 

Mr. Willet Valleau -

At Allisonville on the morning of April 25, 1924, there passed away in the better land, Mr. Willet Valleau.  He was one of Prince Edward county’s oldest citizens, and was almost 90 years of age.  He was born in the Burr neighborhood, in Hillier, in September, 1834.  He was the son of Peter and Martha Potter Valleau, and the grandson of Cornelius and Ann Rowe Valleau, and the great grandson of Lieut. Peter Valleau, who left New York city September 8, 1783, and who landed on the shores of Adolphustown, June 16, 1784.  On both sides of the family tree, all of his great-grandparents were among that now famous band of United Empire Loyalists whose names are immortalized in Canadian history.  As time passed hoary years rested gently on his trembling frame and playfully crowned his brow with roseate hue, like the lingering rays of the setting sun.  But few of all those who begin life here in mortality’s vale succeed in reaching so great an age.  Rarely do we find one whose career is measured off by four score years and ten.  His wife, who was Miss Edith Snider, daughter of George Snider, one of the old pioneers of Massassaga Point, predeceased him about four years ago.  Since then he has oftimes been lonely, and with eyes bedimmed with age, he has been standing, leaning on his staff like pious Jacob of old, and looking across death’s narrow stream beyond the tide.  Tired, weary, careworn, he stood peering through the lattice, anxiously awaiting the summons - the echo of the harvest call.  Of a family of seven sons and three daughters only one is left, Mrs. W. K. Burr of Lockport, Illinois.

In politics Mr. Valleau was a Liberal;  in religion, a Methodist.  In the year 1860, during a revival meeting at Crofton, conducted by the Rev. Hiram Williams of the M. E. Church, he and his wife were converted.  And for many years he was a member of the official board, and a leading member of the church.  He was naturally kind hearted, genial, gently and obliging.  His home was a home for he preachers, and they were always generously entertained and received a most cordial welcome and Christian greeting.

He was a remarkably kind husband, a good parent and an obliging neighbor.  He had a family of two sons and two daughters.  They are all living and were in attendance at the funeral;  Mr. Stanley E. Valleau of Toronto,  Mrs. Robert Hazzard of Bloomfield, Mrs. Samuel Rankin of Salmon Point, and Mr. Grant Valleau of Allisonville with whom Mr. Valleau resided at the time of his death.  The funeral was held at the Burr church and was very largely attended.  The gallery and aisles, as well as the body of the church, were all occupied.  The Rev. Gardnier of the Melville circuit officiated.  His theme was:  “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.”  His address was appropriate and was listened to with marked attention.  Mr. Densmore Ainsworth and son, of Wellington, were the funeral directors.  Interment was made in the Burr cemetery.  Truly, precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.

 

The death last week of Mr. Willet Valleau, at the home of his son, Mr. Grant Valleau, removes one of the oldest and most highly respected residents of Hillier township.  He was a man of industry, honesty and integrity - a type of the sturdy, God-fearing men, whose lives have enriched the rural communities.  The deceased, who was ill but a few days, was in his ninetieth year.  He was a member of the Methodist church.  Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. Rankin and Mrs. Hazard of Bloomfield, and two sons, Stanley of Toronto, and Grant on the homestead.  The funeral, which was largely attended, was held on Sunday afternoon from his late residence to Burr’s church, where Rev. G. W. Gardner spoke from the text, Psalm 116-15, “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.”  the choir, with Mrs. Hogle as accompanist, contributed a beautiful selection.  Interment was made in Burr’s cemetery, the bearers being, Messrs. Charles McFaul, Lewis McFaul, Bruce McFaul, Merritt McFaul, Spencer Huffman and George Ferguson.

DEATH'S HARVEST - Mrs. Elliott VanAlstine -- Passed peacefully away to rest last Monday morning, after an illness of but a few weeks, cut off in the first flush of womanhood. Deceased was married to her bereaved husband about four years ago, coming to Napanee as a bride. She proved herself a model wife, and gained the respect and esteem of all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. She bore her trying illness with Christian fortitude, and died surrounded by her husband and friends. Deceased was a daughter of Mr. David Young, of Sillsville. Mrs. VanAlstine was an active member of the Ladies Aid of the Presbyterian church, and will be greatly missed by the members of the Society. The funeral services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. W.W. Peck and were largely attended, the members of Napanee Lodge I.O.O.F. of which Mr. VanAlstine is a member, attending in a body. The handsome casket was covered with wreaths and flowers, the last thoughtful tokens from loving and admiring friends. The sympathy of the whole community goes out to Mr. VanAlstine and the bereaved friends in this their hour of trial.

VanLuven,

Cornelius

 

The Late Cornelius Van Luven Esq.

We regret to have to announce the death of Cornelius Van Luven, Esq., which took place on Dec. 27th.  He passed quietly away after a short illness, at the family homestead, Murvale.  He was born in the year 1800, and his age at the time of his death was 82 years and a few months.  He was one of a long-lived family.  One brother died on Thanksgiving day, aged 85 years;  another brother lives at Battersea, aged 88 years; there are also two aged sisters living.  The family came from near Albany, N.Y.  His grandfather was one of the first settlers near Bath in the township of Ernesttown, long before the Revolutionary war.  Cornelius, when a young man, was in the employ of John G. Cartwright, Esq., by whom he was much respected and trusted.  Mr. Cartwright was desirous that Young Van Luven should take charge of his outside business which was very large, but he was more inclined to be independent and at the age of 28 years he purchased from J. S. Cartwright, Esq., the farm and homestead where he had resided for over 54 years.  In 1824 he married Sarah Amey, a descendant of an U.E. Loyalist family that came from Little Falls, N.Y., at the time of the Revolutionary war.  Her grandfather and a neighbor went one day to the woods to chop, but not returning search was made and their bodies were found mutilated and scalped by Indians.  The family then sought refuge in Canada under the British flag.   Mrs. VanLuven is 78 years of age and feels keenly the separation from her husband.  They had a family of ten children - one dead and nine living, seven of whom were boys and two girls, all married and occupying respectable positions.  They are:  G. W. VanLuven, Brockville, who has one daughter;  Zara Van Luven, merchant and postmaster, Moscow, who has one son a gaoler at Napanee, another a clerk in Hinch & Scott’s and two others at home;  Peter Van Luven, Esq., retired farmer, Moscow, who is a director of the N. T. & Q. Railway and a J.P.;  Alpheus VanLuven, manufacturer, Yarker, and President of the Branch Reform Association.  The latter is married to a daughter of the late Samuel Scott, another old U.E. family;  their son assists the father in his business and the daughter is married to Mr. John Ewart, woollen manufacturer, and an ingenious mechanic and taxidermist, whose studio is full of rare specimens of art which are worthy of inspection.  Michael VanLuven, Sydenham, harness-maker and independent;  Jane Van Luven married Mr Geo. Robinson, paper maker, Newburgh;  Thos. Van Luven, Esq., county Treasurer, Frontenac, is another son;  John B. Van Luven, another son, resides on the homestead and works the farm.’;  Emily Van Luven married Mr. George McKay, Brockville, conductor G.T.R. and has one child.  Cornelius Van Luven’s course through life was characterized by straightforwardness, integrity and perseverance, which gave him a position of esteem in the hearts of all who became acquainted with him.  In early life he joined  the Wesleyan Methodist Church and for over fifty years was a constant attendant in the house of God and for a long time a class leader and always active for the interests of the church.  He was genial and unobtrusive and no cause which he considered right ever appealed to him in vain.  He was a constant advocate of temperance principles;  always opposed to the liquor business in every shape and form. In politics he was a Reformer from principle.  Early in life he identified himself with that noble band of patriots that stood out firmly against the tyranny of the family compact.  He never wavered in his allegiance to Liberal principles and he had the satisfaction to see tyranny in church and state overthrown and responsible government established.  Within his lifetime Canada has advanced from one province to a Dominion of seven, extending from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans.  His long life includes parts of the reigns of four British Sovereigns.  He was a lad of five when Trafalgar was fought, in his teen when Wellington overthrew Napoleon at Waterloo.  When a lad 12 years old he drove his brother to Kingston to join his regiment to take part in the war of 1812 and he was attracted by the music to join as a drummer boy, but he had to take the horses home and take care of the old folks, his mother anxiously awaiting his return.  In the rebellion of 1837-38 he was one who went to Kingston and took up arms against the rebels, giving the lie to those who now-a-days look upon the Reformers of that day as rebels, for no more loyal set of men ever lived than the Reformers of ’37 and ’38, and among them Cornelius Van Luven was one who stood in the front to defend the rights of the Crown and the Freedom of the people.  What a lot of wonderful events have occurred since this old veteran came into the world at the commencement of the present century?  In his time railways, steamboats, steam printing presses, matches, telegraphing, telephone, and a multitude of other improvements in agriculture came into use.  He leaves behind him an example worthy of imitation and a name that his children may be proud of.  His life should be an example to those who have wandered away from their first principles and are now unrespected even by those who they have joined.  Let them return, and thus like our departed friend, leave behind them an honoured name which is better than great riches.

OBITUARY - THE LATE JOHN VINE -

Death came with startling suddenness to one of Napanee’s best known and highly respected residents in the person of Mr. John Vine, who passed away very shortly after the midnight hour on Monday morning.  Although Mr. Vine had not been in the best of health for some time, he was around as usual, and on Sunday morning, after partaking of a hearty breakfast, took very ill and all day Sunday his condition was very serious, in fact so much so that word was sent to his daughter, Mrs. Treleaven, in Toronto, to come to Napanee at once.  Death was due to heart trouble, of which he had been a sufferer for some time.  Mr. Vine was one of seven children, and he was the last surviving member of the family.  His parents were Mr. and Mrs. Edward Vine, and he was born and always resided in Napanee.  He was 82 years of age and was one of the oldest members of Argyll Lodge No. 212, l.O.O.F.  He loved Oddfellowship, and until a few years ago was a regular attendant at the lodge session.  He was also a lifelong member of Trinity Church.  His passing came as a great shock to his many friends in Napanee and district.  Surviving are his widow, who before her marriage was Miss Fairbairn, three sons, A. G. Vine and George Vine, of Winnipeg;  John Vine, of Watertown and four daughters, Mrs. W. B. Sills, and Mrs. Edwin Miller, Napanee;  Mrs. Treleaven, of Toronto, and Miss Laura Vine, Reg. N., of New York City.  His son, A. G. Vine, of Winnipeg, spent a few days last week in town with his parents and had just recently returned to the west.
