Barnabus C. BUCKNAM was born at Falmouth, Maine, 31st October, 1802 and came to this Province with his parents in 1805, first to Grand Manan (Charlotte Co.) where his father built four large barques, and in 1807 to Pennfield where he grew to manhood. He followed the business of his father, milling, ship building and farming. He was baptized by Rev. S. Robinson on July 14th, 1833 and took a great interest in the Church. He was many years a trustee of schools and gave land upon which to erect a school building when more accommodation was required. It was not until the spring of the present year that he began to fail.

Loss of Schr. Eddie Pierce - A telegram was received here last Thursday from Boston, conveying the sad intelligence that the schooner Eddie Pierce was lost in the gale of the day before and that Capt. Angus HOLMES, master of the vessel, has been washed overboard and drowned. The vessel sailed from here Saturday the 22d ult., for New York, having for cargo 4000 cases of sardines and a few thousand boxes smoked herring.   When 14 miles off Cape Code on Wednesday, they were caught in the heavy gale of the day, and at noon the vessel's sails were blown away and a plank sprung from the stern. After trying to lighten the vessel by throwing over cargo and steady work at the pumps, the water gained on them so fast that all hopes of keeping the vessel afloat were soon abandoned. Fortunately a steamer was sighted and a signal of distress was run up. The steamer proved to be the Bavaria, Capt. Ball, from Liverpool to Boston. By this time the vessel had filled and rolled over so that the masts were in the water, and when the steamer's life boat reached them, they were obliged to crawl out on the vessels spars and thus be taken off. It was just before the steamer's boat reached them, about 4 o'clock, that Capt. Holmes was washed overboard by one of the heavy seas that swept the vessel's deck. The rescued men, Fielding Malloch, mate, and Luke Holmes, seaman, of this town, and W.E. Miller and Francis Myers of Lubec, were kindly cared for on the steamer, and to the prompt and skillful efforts of the boat's crew they are indebted for their lives. The men arrived home on Saturday's steamer from Boston. The schooner Eddie Pierce was owned by various parties in this town, and was valued at about $3000. There was no insurance on the vessel but the cargo of sardines had full insurance. Capt. Angus Holmes was a man fifty years of age and he leaves a wife and large family, part of whom are grown up. He was a steady, industrious man, respected by all who knew him, and his sudden death is a hard blow to the sorrowing family in whose love and welfare he had always taken his greatest pleasure in life.

A. Beecher Hawkins Passes At Pennfield After Heart Attack
Prominent Citizen Was Veteran Of County Council And Active In Many Groups

    The death of A. Beecher Hawkins, of Pennfield, for many years a valued member of the Charlotte County Council, occurred at his home in Pennfield Monday evening, June 26, after an illness of only a few hours. He was aged 74 years.
   He had eaten his midday meal as usual and was about the farmstead until about 2 o'clock, when he was stricken with a heart seizure and lapsed into semi-consciousness from which he failed to recover. Death occurred shortly after 7 o'clock that evening. 
    Mr. Hawkins was a former warden and a veteran of nearly 40 years in the County Council, where his judgment was highly respected and had also been active for nearly half a century in the Liberal Party. A public-spirited citizen, he was prominent in community services and had been associated in recent years with the A.R.P., the Children's Aid Society, the County Board of Trade and other progressive organizations. His position in his community made him a key figure in any such undertakings, and he lent valuable assistance to all of them. A keen follower of sports, he took great interest in the development of community spirit by this medium. Personally he continued alert in mind and body despite the advancing years. His duties included overseer of the poor and sub-deputy register of vital statistics, and fraternally he was a member of the Orange Order. 
    Besides his farming activities he had for years harvested large crops of cultivated blueberries, most of which were exported to New York and other U.S. centres, and through careful selection and packaging a keen demand for Pennfield blueberries was built up. 
    A son of the Caleb T. and Margaret (Hopkins) Hawkins, he is survived by his wife, formerly Charlotte G.Thompson, daughter of Capt. James and the late Mrs. Thompson, Chance Harbor, five sons, Charles A., proprietor of the Pennfield Corner store; James A., on the office staff of Noorthryn Aircraft Corporation, Montreal; L.A.C. Alfred H., at the R.C.A.F. Pennfield depot; Arthur B., at home; and L/Bdr. George J.P., now in France; and three daughters, Mrs. William Southard, St. George; Mrs. James R. O'Brien, Pennfield, and Mrs. Jack H. Golding. There are also ten grandchildren.

We haven't seen each other for the past few years as he bought a farm about 20 miles from Cape Enrage, where he had been a lighthouse keeper. He was three years older than me, born and brought up in Pennfield, mother and father, Bertha and Barney Justason .
     He leaves to mourn his oldest sister Nina O'Neill, Fundy Nursing Home, Charlotte Brown, Beaver Harbour Road, Eunice Fraser, St. George, Herbert Justason, Beaver Harbour Road, and his daughter Debbie Cook of Beaver Harbour.
    I'm remembering a brother who looked after me at the little local school, who took Paul and me out in his boat when he was a fisherman in Beaver Harbour, of the brother who took my kids to their first Sunday School Christmas concert in Beaver Harbour Baptist Church, and made sure there were gifts there for Mike and Pat. Sorry we lost contact."
