Mary Powie Balfour
"On Tuesday, Oct. 10, a most sad and terrible accident occurred, by which Mrs. James Balfour lost her life. It is unknown to anyone just how the accident occurred, but it is supposed that Mrs. Balfour, in attempting to fill her gasoline stove, spilled some of the liquid on the flames causing a terrible fire to suddenly spring up and communicate with her clothes. She immediately ran out of the house all ablaze and began to wrap herself in some quilts which hung on the line. Her screams soon brought her mother and sister to the spot, and they continued to wrap her in the quilts until the fire was out. Her husband and a doctor were hastily summoned, but it was seen immediately that she was beyond human help. The accident occurred at about eleven o'clock, and she lived until after four in the afternoon, regaining her consciousness nearly to the last."

Jonathan Barron
"
Revolutionary War soldier honored - St. Clair - Jonathan Barron was honored Tuesday, although he died Dec. 2, 1834. His grave in Hillside Cemetery, St. Clair, was dedicated in a ceremony by the Louisa St. Clair Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) as the only located grave in St. Clair County of a Revolutionary War veteran. St. Clair Mayor Raymond L. Gellein declared Tuesday Jonathan Barron Day. Tuesday was the 200th anniversary (Aug. 16, 1777) of the Battle of Benningron, Vt., in which Barron fought at the age of 17 years. Descendants of Barron attending the ceremony were William B. Ewart, St. Clair; Stephen McCracken, art's grandson who is home from Brazil where his parents are missionaries; Dr. H. Granger Ewart's, U.S. Nary retired; Mrs. Laurel Lydy, Dr. Ewart's daughter; Mrs. Ellen Meno's daughter, Mrs. Stephanie Meno Minor and Mrs. Ellen Meno's grandson, Matthew Teeple. Mrs. Robert W. Sawyer Jr., regent of Louisa St. Clair Chapter, introduced the speakers and the DAR chapters participating in the ceremony. They were Boy Scout Troop 294 of St. Clair; Mrs. James Eastern, vice president general, National Society, DAR; Mrs. Maxwell E. Hunt, Michigan first vice regent, DAR; Miss Marion E. Morse, state chaplain, DAR; Mrs. George F. Ryckman, state senior president; Mrs. William c. Sued, Louisa St. Clair Chapter historian; Mrs. John E. DeWald, Louisa St. Clair Chapter member who researched the graves location. Mrs. Hunt explained that the locating and marking of a Revolutionary War soldier's grave was started by the National Society of the DAR between 1897-98. Data on graves either located or marked are reported to the Recorder General each year and a report of these activities are submitted to the Smithsonian Institution, which includes the information with its report to the U. S. Congress. Locating and marking of graves was started in Michigan by the DAR in 1900. To date, 257 graves have been located in Michigan and 195 have been marked. Most graves have been marked before 1930 (the Barron grave was marked in 1904 by the St. Clair Ot-Si-Ke-Ta Chapter, although not dedicated), but occasionally unmarked graves are found, Mrs. Hunt said. Jonathan Barron and his wife, Thankful Minor, came to St. Clair in 1813 to farm land. He was born in Reading, Mass.., June 30, 1760, and enlisted in the Revolutionary War under his father, a captain in the New Hampshire militia. Barron was put on the military pension rolls at the age of 74 in 1833. His yearly pension was $57.22. He collected $171.66 before he died at the age of 77 in 1834."

John Bauer
"SUICIDE BY HANGING - L
ast Friday at about 8 o’clock, John Bauer, a farmer of northwest Mussey, aged about 65, after having put his son off the farm in October and married again in November and then having expressed himself as regretting both acts, put an end to his distress of mind by stepping off into eternity from the top of the rack in his sheep shed, a rope about the neck collecting the fall.

The body hung where found all day until when, at about 6 o’clock that evening, coroner Faulk and Deputy Sheriff Austion of Port Huron arrived, decided it was a clear case of suicide, and turned the body over to the undertaker Walter.

The funeral services were held from the Evangelical church on Monday, Dec 23. Dr. Fisher officiating, and interment was made in the adjoining cemetery.

Relatives from Flint and Imlay failed in an attempt to hold up the funeral but made an unpleasant scene.

The story of the discovery of the tragedy briefly, is as follows:

T
he wife told that Bauer was out the night before the tragedy until 10 o’clock, when questioned he said he had spent the evening at the home of Chas. J. Bremman; that on the morning of the tragedy Bauer went to the barn presumably to do the chores; when he did not return to the house at the usual time she called to him then went to look for him; not finding him she went to the home of Mr. Breeman, but he was not there, and so Mr. Breeman went back to the Bauer home to clear up the mystery, and he found Bauer hanging farm an overlay in the sheep shed. The family doctor Buck and the sheriff’s office were notified:

T
he doctor was the first officer to arrive; the sheriff’s office notified Deputy Al Brink to take the Justice of the peace with him and investigate the causes of death. Brink took Justice Wm. Hunter.

W
hile these officers were making a careful investigation of the premises, the following men were there and agreed with the finding of the officers: Rev. Facher and Mc Cue, Chris Water, Albert Kettlehutt, Chas. Bremman and others.  The officers decided that there were no suspicious circumstances connected with the death and that it was a clear case of suicide. They were ready then and there to have the body cut down and turned over to the undertaker.

Why the Body Hung Till Night -

T
he son Will was called up at Capac and notified. Will was not satisfied, and asked for time to get out to the farm with his doctor, which was granted. Then the officers called up the sheriff’s office and were told the son should be satisfied - that if he wanted an inquest he could have it by putting up security for the costs.

The officers remained on the premises until noon, and then returned to town, leaving the body hanging, as the son was not satisfied and there was a prospect of an inquiry; in town the family doctor refused to certify the cause of death was suicide.

Then the son, in agreement with the local officials called by the sheriff’s office and the coroner’s office and had the proceedings delayed until those officers arrived on the early evening train.

Coroner Faulk and Sheriff Austin made a careful investigation, decide it was a clear case of suicide, then upholding the decision of the local officers, and certified the body to be taken to the undertaker.

After accepting the decision of the corner and the deputy sheriff, the son did fine. He stood by the widow, his step-mother, during the disturbance at the funeral, looked for her comfort and the farm chores, and has made a peaceable settlement of the property which gets her $200 in money. He is also getting her comfortably settled in a home in this village. We say that’s netting the part of a man."

The deceased, whose maiden name was Babet Vorhous, was born Mar. 17, 1815, at Fuerth, Bavaria and when 25 years of age became Mrs. Solomon Bendit with whom she came to this country in 1840. For a time the young couple made their home in New York city, then in Detroit and finally 37 years ago moved to St. Clair where they have since resided. In her life Mrs. Bendit was of a modest, retiring, religious disposition, fond of her home and was a devoted mother with a very charitable heart who found pleasure in looking after the welfare of others. She was at one time a member of the Eastern Star and the ladies of this order as a testimonial of their esteem sent to her funeral a beautiful symbolic five colored floral star. In addition to this many floral and other tributes of respect were received by the family and a number of friends from Port Huron, Sarnia and Omaha were present at the last sad rites to this noble woman. The remains were interred Tuesday in the Woodmere cemetery, Detroit, Rabbi Kroneman delivering an excellent and appropriate discourse and paying a beautiful tribute to the worth and character of the deceased. The family desire to return their thanks to the numerous friends who so kindly aided them in caring for Mrs. Bendit during her last illness and whose many acts of attention alleviated so far as possible the sorrow of what must be necessarily a sad occasion."

Samuel Bendit
"Samuel Bendit was born in New York city, April 17, 1841 and his parents removed to Detroit in 1844 where he became a member of the Capitol school, remaining there until April, 1854, when on the removal of his parents to St. Clair he was sent to New York city to attend a private school and remained there for a year, coming to St. Clair in 1855. After attending the public schools here for a short time he was sent to the Romeo Academy at Romeo, a school which at that time had quite a noted reputation. He remained there about a year and then took a position in his father's store, becoming a partner in the firm in 1860, the firm name changing to Bendit, Schornstein & Co. Young Bendit was always popular and when twenty-one years of age accepted an invitation to become a member of Evergreen Lodge, and afterwards united with the Blue Lodge and Chapter. He also became a member of the Knights of Pythias. He took an active interest in all matters of a public nature and especially urged the importance of having a steam fire engine here which owing doubtless largely to his efforts was purchased by the city and as a mark of appreciation he was elected chief engineer of the Fire Department. He served as alderman for two or three terms, a part of the time filling the position of acting mayor. On the 19th of July, 1864, he was married to Miss Regina Hirschmann, daughter of Louis J. Hirschmann, of Detroit. He continued to reside in St. Clair, and take an active part in the business here until 1876 when he accepted a position with the Great Western and Grand Trunk Railways at Detroit, and moved to that city. In 1884 he had a stroke of paralysis and although he appeared to recover from it, there is no doubt that this was the beginning of an illness which soon rendered him an invalid so that for the last five years he has been unable to attend to business and latterly he has been confined to the house. His death occurred on Tuesday morning and he leaves a devoted father and an equally devoted wife and daughter to mourn his loss. His remains will be taken from the house to the depot this morning with Masonic services, and they will then be taken to Detroit to be laid to rest in the family lot in Woodmere Cemetery where the services will be conducted by Rabbi Grossman. The family in this hour of affliction have the hearty sympathy of their many friends who mourn the sad blow which took from the community one of its number who previous to his illness had shown unusual ability both as a businessman, and in his public and social relations. A number of friends and neighbors met at the late home of Mr. Samuel Bendit Thursday morning, where, after the Masonic services at 7:30 a.m., a delegation of masons accompanied the remains to Detroit, where they were met at the depot by the Ashley Lodge Masons, which escorted their departed brother, to the family lot at Woodmere, where he was laid to rest, with their beautiful and impressive rites, Dr. L. Grossman also reading a prayer, and making a few touching remarks. Mr. Joseph Jacobi, Mr. and Mrs. Alex, Jacobi, Mr. and Mrs. Jake Jacobi of Port Huron, Mr. and Mrs. A. Suhler, Sarnia, Mr. and Mrs. Alex Jacobi of Mt. Clemens, met at Lenox, and accompanied the family to Detroit, where at the depot, Mrs. and Mrs. Herman H. Heineman of Milwaukee, Mr. L. Herman of Cleveland, and besides the immediate relatives living in Detroit, a great many friends awaited and escorted the funeral cortege to Woodmere. Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Heineman, the later a sister of Mrs. Sam. Bendit, returned with the family and remained here until Saturday. - We hereby tender our heartfelt thanks to our friends, and also the members of the Masonic Lodge, for the kind acts and sympathy shown us during our long and great affliction. - Solomon Bendit, Regina Bendit, Cora M. Bendit."

Shortly after his return from Detroit he accepted a position in G.

His funeral was held in the Lutheran church, Wednesday, Dec. 14, and was largely attended by his former school-mates and friends, Rev. H. W. Schroeder officiating. Mr. and Mrs. Boeckman desire to express their heartfelt thanks to the many friends and neighbors, who so kindly assisted during the illness and after the death of their beloved son."

Her husband died in 1853, leaving her the care of the family most of them quite young, and two farms both heavily mortgaged, but with hard work and strict economy the debts were paid off. In 1862 she married William Boylan and 1878 was again left a widow and has since then resided with her children, the last year she made her home with T. J. Millikin of this city and had gone to Port Huron to visit friends and died there. Mrs. Boylan was a strict Methodist of the old school.

Margaret Brennan
"Mrs. Margaret Connell McDonald Brennan, daughter of Hugh McDonald and Sarah Woodward, was born at Teesdale, Ontario, Canada, on the 6th of April 1879. At about the age of two she came to the U. S. A. and made her home in Port Huron. Here she attended the local schools and was graduated from the High school of that city in 1899. She taught rural schools near Capac and Emmett for several years. She met her husband in this occupation and was united in marriage with Charles J. Brennan on November 6, 1901, at Port Huron. Two children were born to their union. They made their home on the farm north-west of town, where they lived for over thirty years and their family grew to manhood. This period came to an end with the death of her husband on October 5, 1934. Her home now became the village of Capac. She had been a member of the Presbyterian Church, and in the year 1935 she united with St. John's Lutheran Church. In this Church she found great happiness and was very active. Especially in the work of the Dorcas society of the church, in which she served as officer for many years, did she find an outlet for her desire to remain active. Her life was happy in the midst of her grandchildren who came daily to see her. Her neighborhood friends found an eager companion in her. Her aunt, Mrs. Jane McGregor, came to make her home with her about a year ago and was with her at her death. On June 1 of this year she suffered a stroke while busy in her garden and her life was despaired of at that time. However by careful nursing she was restored to a point where she was able to be about her home. But this seeming recover only covered her true condition for a short while. On Thursday morning June 28 at 11 a.m. she very suddenly passed away when another stroke seized her. She was then 66 years, 2 months and 22 days old. She leaves her two sons, Norman and Kenneth Brennan, of Capac; her sister Mrs. Elizabeth Smith of Detroit; her two brothers, J. A. McDonald of Jeddo and Duncan R. McDonald of Pontiac; her aunt, Jane McGregor, of Capac; and six grandchildren. Not only her family but her many friends will grieve of her. The church has lost an ardent supporter. Her activity will be remembered long. May the Lord whom she served faithfully grant her rest and peace."

Harvey Brown
"The Late Harvey Brown. Mr. Harvey Brown, of Fort Gratiot, who died on Wednesday, the 14th inst., was born July 26th, 1801, on the Canada shore of Lake Ontario, where his parents had emigrated from the State of New York, residing there for a short time. Upon returning to New York, his father, who was a physician, kept a hotel and store, besides carrying on a large farm in the vicinity of Cape Vincent, where he accumulated considerable property. His son Harvey followed rafting upon the St. Lawrence River for some time. He married the wife who now survives him and when he removed to this State, 22 years ago, had a family of six children, one of whom has since died, while the rest are married and living in this State - all but one in this vicinity. Mr. Brown settled at Fort Gratiot, clearing up quite a farm on the lake shore. He also rafted to some extent on Black River. He led an industrious life, and sustained an unsullied character. Earnest and practical in religion, an enthusiastic Republican in politics, warm-hearted and benevolent in social life, he was respected and loved by a large circle of acquaintances and friends. His funeral was largely atteneded last Friday forenoon, at the M. E. Church, the Rev. E. Barry preaching. The discourse upon the occasion was listened to with marked attention. The text was from Phillippians, I. chap., 23rd verse: 'Having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is for better,' selected because it embodied the sentiments often expressed by the deceased during his last illness. Though not a member of the church, Mr. Brown had been strictly identified with the M. E. Society as one of its most earnest supporters."
