Pennfield (Charlotte Co.) 21st Feb., 1877 - Died at Pennfield, 7th Feb., John McGREGOR, age 97. He was a native of County Down, Ireland. He volunteered in 1802, his age being 22. He fought through the Peninsula war and was present when MOORE fell from his horse. He was at the seige of Copenhagen and was on his march into the field when the battle of Waterloo was won by Wellington. He served 21 years and volunteered again. He was discharged in England after the peace and came to this place 48 years ago and has resided here ever since. He remembered all his battles and could tell all about them till within a few days of his death; and said that if he was only 21, he would enlist again to serve his Queen and country. And I think it would be the duty of our country to rise a monument to his memory. (sgd) S.T. ANDERSON

d. Edward SNELL, for a number of years light keeper at Beaver Harbor (Charlotte Co.) died a day or two ago after a short illness. He was aged 78 years. The deceased was an Englishman by birth and a portion of his early life was spent as midshipman on a British man-of-war. After his removal to New Brunswick, he was for a number of years pilot out of St. Andrews. He served as such, we are told, when the Bay of Fundy survey, under Admiral OWEN was made. After giving up pilot life, he became a light keeper at the Wolves, and subsequently changed that position for Beaver Harbor. He was a splendid specimen of physical manhood -a typical 'old sea dog'. His jolly manner made him a general favorite. His death came suddenly. He was buried Wednesday with Masonic honors in Christ Church graveyard.

Four years ago he came to St. George to live permanently.
    In 1907 he married Miss Mina Maxwell, who survives him, and to whom the deepest sympathy of the community is extended, both for the loss of her husband and in the death of her sister, Mrs. James Hoyt, on Thursday.
    Among the many beautiful flowers were wreaths from the Sun Life Insurance Co., Skeet Club, Masonic Order, Firemen, Ladies of the St. George Branch of the Red Cross Society, A.R.D. Society of the Baptist Church and many others.
