From "The Register" newspaper - Berwick

January 20th 1897, Vol. VI, No. 31 - It is my painful duty to announce the death of one of our oldest and most respected residents, Mr. Jas Dunham, who departed this life Monday, 4th inst., after a illness of many months endured with christian patience and resignation. Deceased though a strict Presbyterian seldom failed to attend our church with his family. Burlington loses by the death of Mr. Dunham a kind neighbor, a sincere christian and one of the very few remaining early settlers. Deceased had a large family, four of whom with their aged mother survive him. Our sympathies are with the bereaved ones. The funeral which took place on Friday was largely attended. Internment at Burlington church yard, where the remains of three of his children lie.

August 24th 1898 - (Woodlawn column) - It is my painful duty to inform the readers of the REGISTER of the death of one of our former residents, Mr. John Sto(?)rs Ogilvie, who died in Boston City Hospital, after a short illness of sixteen days, with typhoid fever. His body was brought home on the 16th and buried in Burlington cemetery, beside the remains of his father and brother. Mr. Wilber W. Ogilvie accompanied the remains home. We tender our sympathy to his widowed mother, brothers and sisters.

October 5th 1898 - One of our former residents, Mr. Ambrose Brown, was interred at Burlington cemetery Sept. 28th. Mr. Brown has resided at Victoria Harbor for a number of years.

April 12, 1899 - Burlington And Vicinity - Capt. John Robinson passed away on the 4th. He was interred at Burlington cemetery on the 7th. Some years ago, the Capt. Retired from a sea life to a farm near Harborville. He was much attached to his bachelor home, and when age and sickness came, he refused to leave the place where he had enjoyed his quiet. His niece, Mrs. Robert Ogilvie, attended him and had him removed to her home where all was done that loving hands could do. She ministered to his wants and cared for him through his last illness. The Capt. was 82 years of age. He leaves one brother, Mr. B. Robinson, of Nicholsville, and two sisters to mourn the loss of an affectionate brother.

December 3, 1924 - MRS. JOHN SWEENEY - At Garland, Kings County, Nov. 18th, Mrs. John Sweeney, after a brief illness passed to her eternal reward. Mrs. Sweeney was stricken with pneumonia while nursing her son, who only recently had been brought home from Hants County, where he had been employed during the summer months. The deceased was a daughter of the late Albert Lutz, who predeceased her by only a few days. As a mother she was most ambitious for her children, and truly gave her life for them. As a neighbor she was always ready to go to the assistance of anyone in need and will long be missed in the community. The grief-stricken family have the sympathy of the entire countryside who gathered in large numbers to attend the funeral services in the Burlington church.
