Kezia E. Carleton
"Mrs. George A. Carleton, whose maiden name was Kezia E. House, was born in St. Thomas, Ont., August 12, 1844, and died at her home in this city, Monday, Nov. 14, 1892, aged 48 years, 3 months and 2 days. She married Mr. Carleton Sept. 8, 1863. The fruit of their marriage was one son, William Wallace who, after attaining the age of 12 years died Oct. 28, 1876. Mrs. Carleton's illness dates back several months, but during the past fifteen weeks she had been confined to her bed. The trouble was a disease of the bones, which started in one of her feet gradually affecting her entire body and causing her death as above stated. Her sufferings were in tense yet she bore up bravely under her great afflictions. She had lived in St. Clair almost continually since her marriage, with the exception of the first four years of the Cleveland administration, during which time she was with her husband, who was custom's officer and stationed at Port Huron and Stratford, Canada. Her sister, Mrs. T. J. Nicol, of West Superior, Wis., arrived in the city but a few hours previous to Mrs. Carleton's death. Mrs. Henry, of Sombra, Ont., an aunt of Mrs. Carleton's, was almost constantly in attendance for the past two weeks, rendering very efficient aid. In February last the deceased went to Orillea, Canada, and buried her mother, Mrs. A. R. Kittermaster. Mrs. Carleton was a member of the M. E. Church and died in full faith of a blessed resurrection. Her funeral was held at the home Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock, Rev. J. McEldowney officiating, a large number of sympathizing friends attending, and following the remains to their last resting place in the city cemetery. Mr. Carleton desires to thank the neighbors and friends for services rendered, and especially does he wish to thank Mrs. Stewart McKenzie, who ministered to Mrs. Carleton's many wants faithfully, throughout the long weeks of intense suffering."

Lovicy Chamberlain
"Died in China township, Feb 16, 1898 at the residence of her son-in-law, Aaron McMillan, Mrs. Lovicy Chamberlain, aged 81 years, 9 months and 26 days. Lovicy Worden was born in South Bristol, Ontario Co., N. Y, April 20, 1816. She came with her parents to Michigan in 1826. Her father bought a tract of land on St. Clair river now known as the Donahue farm and here she lived until her marriage with Porter Chamberlain of Niagara Co., N. Y., May 7, 1835 when she moved on the farm where she has always lived. Six children were born to them but only three survive her, viz: Mr. John Chamberlain, Mrs. Aaron McMillan and Mrs. Ada Robbins, with whom she has lived and who has most tenderly and lovingly cared for her since her widowhood in 1887. Mrs. Chamberlain can be considered one of the pioneers of St. Clair Co. for the farms which now show scarcely a trace of woodland was a forest when she came to the state. Educational advantages in those early days were few and meager, yet she acquired a fair knowledge of books; and reading was a source of profit as well as pleasure to her until the failure of her sight a few years ago which entirely deprived her of this privilege. Much sympathy is felt for Mrs. Robbins, who on account of illness of herself and family, were unable to be with her mother during her last hours. About two weeks before her death it was thought best to have her visit her other daughter, during the illness in the family of Mrs. Robbins, leaving home in usual health, but never to enter or be seen in life by those loved ones again; but all that loving hands could do was done to prolong her life in this world, but to no avail. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. W. A. Tripp after which she was laid to rest by the side of her husband in East China cemetery.

In the resurrection morning,
When the ransomed host shall rise,
We will meet our loved and lost ones
In the home beyond the skies.
Where the wicked cease from troubling"
And the weary are at rest,
We will meet thee, dearest mother,
In the mansions of the blest."

Emil "The Buffalo" Claerhaut
"'The Buffalo' Emil Dies - Richmond - Emil "The Buffalo" Claerhaut, 84, of 2125 Werner Road, died Thursday in his home of an apparent heart attack. Claerhaut was well known in the area for the buffaloes he raised at his restaurant in Synderville. "It's the end of an era out here. Really Emil was a legend in his own time," said Roy Heartstead, Rattle Run. "He was a friend to everyone who ever came into his restaurant. He'll be missed, especially by the children from all over the area who came to see his buffaloes. It just doesn't seem possible. Back in September of 1975 he took a beating during a robbery at his home that would have killed most men, but he made it through then," Heartstead said. Heartstead referred to the robbery in which two men, their faces masked with nylon stockings forced their way into Claerhaut's home and took Claerhaut's life savings estimated at nearly $200,000. The men who robbed Claerhaut were never caught and none of the money has ever been found, according to Michigan State Police, St. Clair Post. The case is still open. Mr. Claerhaut was born June 11, 1892, in Belgium. He married May Verbrugge of Detroit Feb. 16, 1916. She died Dec. 3, 1955. Mr. Claerhaut owned Emil's Restaurant for 41 years. He was a member of Council 2667, Knights of Columbus, Richmond; St. Augustine Catholic Church, Richmond; Michigan Beverage Association of St. Clair county; National buffalo Association; and National Beverage Association. He is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Madeline Schuster and Mrs. Virginia Dolan, both of Richmond; two sisters, Mrs. Irma Herman, Marshall, and Mrs. Mary Demeulnarre, Grosse Point; a brother, Maurice Claerhaut, Detroit; 11 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; two step great-grandchildren. A son, Frank
Claerhaut, died in 1970. Remains will be in Colonial Funeral Home, St. Clair Highway Chapel, St. Clair, after 2 p.m. Saturday. Funeral arrangements are incomplete."

It was caught by a deckhand by the name of Chas. Wilson. Immediately after the deckhand found that his right arm was fast under the line, and he began to call for help. Arthur Conkey, mate of the Woodford, and a brother of the marine reporter, took in the situation. At the same time he noticed that his brother's boat had capsized. He pulled a knife from his pocket, cut the tow line, threw off his coat and vest, grabbed a life preserver and calling out, "Tell the captain I am going to save Tony's life," I jumped into the lake. By this time, however the marine reporter had disappeared. There was quite a sea on at the time, which prevented him from keeping afloat until help reached him. The steamer Mack was passing up at the time, and the crew noticed that Arthur Conkey, mate of the Woodford was nearly exhausted. A boat was quickly lowered, and he was rescued, and put aboard of the steamer Penobscot. The captain of the boat supplied Mr. Conkey with dry clothing and brought him to the Butler street dock. The steamer Woodford made a landing at Miller's coal dock, and Wilson, the deckhand, was taken to Dr. Morey's office, where it was found that the muscles of his arm were badly torn, but no bones were broken. The boat left for Cleveland at 9 a. m. Arthur Conkey, mate of the Woodford, said to The Times this afternoon: "As we neared the foot of the lake I was taking in the log line. I recognized Tony in his boat, and sang out, 'I will be with you in a minute.' Soon after I noticed that a line from my brother's boat had been thrown aboard the Woodford, and the deckhand's arm was fast under it. I also noticed that my brother was struggling for his life in the lake. I jumped into the water, but I was too late, Tony had gone down. Marine Reporter Riggs and myself have been up to the scene of the drowning, but could find not trace of the body. Tony had been in the employ of the Kendall Marine Reporting Co. since the opening of navigation. He was an expert oarsman and a good swimmer. I am at a loss to understand what overturned the boat. I will remain ashore for some time and try and recover the body of my brother." Tony Conkey, the drowned marine reporter, was a popular young man, and his drowning comes as a shock to his many friends. Captain Arthur Conkey, father of the drowned young man, says: "The deckhands on the steamer were responsible for the overturning of my son's boat. They must have handled the line in an awkward manner." Sanitary inspector Brittain Clarke and Capt. Conkey are engaged grappling for the body in Lake Huron this afternoon."

"DRAG FOR BODY - Attempts to Recover Remains of Anthony Conkey Unsuccessful. Sanitary Inspector Clarke and Capt. Conkey, the father, spent Saturday afternoon dragging the St. Clair river at the foot of Lake Huron trying to find the body of Tony Konkey, drowned Saturday morning. They were unsuccessful. All day Sunday the lake was rough and great waves dashed on the beach. Friends of the young man were present hoping the young man's body would be washed ashore. A close watch will be kept along the river by the marine reporters in hopes of finding the body when it comes up."

Arthur T. Conkey
"Well-known Sailor dies in Home, victim of Heart Disease. The body of Arthur T. Conkey, 63, former Great Lakes sailor who died Wednesday of heart disease, was discovered Friday night by police in the Conkey home, 718 Erie Street, where he had been living alone since the death of his father, Capt. Arthur Martin Conkey, in 1934. Police Chief Herman J. Nelson, neighbor, and lifelong friend of Mr. Conkey, said this morning that inactivity around the Conkey home during the last three days prompted him to make an investigation. He called Traffic Sergt. Ralph J. Irwin, who entered the house with the police chief and found Conkey's body on the floor of the living room. Coroner H. Clinton Downs, who directed an autopsy conducted by Dr.Frederick Ludwig and Dr. R. R. Licker, said Conkey had been dead 60 hours. Death was caused by heart disease, he said. Mr. Conkey was born in Port Huron, Feb. 5, 1876, and attended school here. He sailed the Great Lakes during his youth and become a first mate for the Pittsburgh Steamship company. His active career ended 30 years ago, when his brother Anthony Conkey, a marine reporter, drowned while making a mail deliver to the steamer of which Arthur Conkey was first mate. Arthur leaped overboard in an effort to save his brother and swam the rapids of St Clair river nearly eight hours before shipmates persuaded him to give up the search. Arthur was struck by the boat's propeller blade while searching for his brother's body, which was recovered six months later. Mr. Conkey is survived by two nieces, Miss Elizabeth M. Conkey, Port Huron, and Miss Phyllis Conkey, Chicago. The remains are in the Albert A. Falk mortuary, where funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday."

Every weekday morning at 10 a.m., he would have us turn his radio on so he could hear the word from John Macarthur on our local radio Christian station, W.N.F.A. Brian's cheerful spirit lifted us all. Brian worked at many jobs since he was 16 years, but settled on carpentry. He worked on many of the new stores here and in Detroit. Brian loved sports. He played baseball, hockey and liked to ski. He coached Little League baseball and also played golf. He missed a hole in one by one inch. He sure loved to talk about it! Brian was bedridden the last four years. In his illness, his greatest joy was watching sports. The family took his to Comerica Park earlier this year and the Tigers beat the Yankees. He had a wonderful time, and thought the new park was great. Cremation has taken place, but there will be a memorial service at a later date.

Donald Coyle was admitted to Port Huron Hospital, where is is undergoing treatment in the intensive care unit. His condition is reported as serious. Bathey told Deputy Joe Danna, St. Clair County Sheriff Department, that he had been invited to the Coyle's for Thanksgiving dinner. "I got there about 1:30., knocked on the door, and walked into the house. The furnace was out, and it was cold in the house," said Bathey. "I found Donald in the living room and he could hardly breath. Bessie was in the bedroom. It's a terrible thing," he said. The Memphis Fire Department and Kimball Township fire rescue units were called. Officers said there was a malfunction in the basement furnace, causing smoke and soot to fill the house.

Elmore Crary
"The funeral services connected with the death of Elmore Crary were held at the Congregational church on Thursday of last week, and were very largely attended. Rev. Ralph Duff officiated. The church had been beautifully decorated by loving hands, and the services throughout were of the most appropriate nature. The signing by the young lady members of the choir was especially fitting. The hymns, in the singing of which their dead comrade in song had so often joined, were sang with a sweetness and a pathos that touched every heart. The school companions of the dead boy attended the services in a body- eight of their number acting as pall-bearers. No death for years has more deeply affected the younger portion of the community, with whom Elmore was deservedly a general favorite. The circumstances of his taking off were unusually pathetic. In the very flush of youth, just entering into something of his manhood's strength, full of the joy of living, he is stricken down. After a brave and determined fight of more than two weeks duration, which, in spite of the skill of physicians and the eager desire of loving hearts to aid him, he must wage alone, he is compelled to lay down his weapons and surrender. The sun, our best friend in nature, has become his slayer. How pathetic the story. - 'Tis sad, when at evening the sun is descending, To muse from your cliff on the fast-fading view; 'Tis sad, when hope's smiles with our prospects are blending, In life's rosy morning to whisper, adieu. And yet, 'tis not farewell forever, but, "We'll meet again, 'twill not be long.""

"Elmore William Crary, eldest son of James T. and Stella Crary, was born in St. Thomas, Ont., June 25th, 1881, and was therefore eighteen years of age at the time of his death. The grater portion of his young life was spent here, where he will be much missed. He will be missed in many circles, in the younger social circle, in the school circle, in the church circle, where his fine voice Sunday after Sunday was raised in Christian song, but most of all missed in the home circle where he brought brightness and gladness. He was of a genial, happy temperament, full of life and spirit, but with a courtesy and a thoughtfulness for others quite rare for one of his years. We know that the sympathy of the whole community goes out to the stricken family in their sore bereavement. Mr. and Mrs. Crary desire to express their thankfulness to all their friends for the many kindnesses shown them during Elmore's illness and afterwards."
