#63a (There is no date on this clipping, but the death of Mrs. Annie McClary, wife of Harry A. McClary on January 8, 1938 was in the message "Newspaper Clippings-46.")
MRS. HARRY M'CLARY DIED THIS MORNING
Pneumonia Claimed One of Best Known Women in This Section of Province, The death occurred this morning at her home, "Cherry Bank Cottage", Springhill, of Mrs. Annie Donaldson McClary, wife of Harry A. McClary, after a week's illness with pneumonia. Mrs. McClary was born in Fredericton, a daughter of the late Robert and Annie (Howie) Donaldson and lived her entire life here and at
Springhill. She attended Fredericton schools and was most active as a young woman in the affairs of St. Paul's Church before union. She was active in Saint Andrew's Presbyterian Church and deeply interested in St. Peter's Church, Springhill, of which Mr. McClary is an officer. She did not confine her activities to the church but rather in the highways and byways of life, where she looked after the less fortunate people.
Her home in Springhill was always open and many a basket of provisions was sent to a needy family and nothing said about it. The unfortunate transients, who often spent the night in the way station at Springhill will remember Mrs. McClary for her kindness, she always leaving a basket of food in the station so that none would go hungry. Her love for dumb animals was known all over Canada and in many parts of the United States, she keeping a careful eye on animals in Springhill and in the
city as a whole. Mrs. McClary never found the hour too late or too early to go out and look into complaints about cruelty and accompanied members of the R. C. M. P. on many investigations and saw that the animals concerned were either put to sleep or better cared for. She was intensely found of
children and always had one or more around her. Her love for the aged and sick was known to everyone and she thought nothing of walking miles to lend assistance or stay up at night with some one who otherwise would have been alone. At Christmas time she looked after many and was never
as happy as when she was doing something for someone else. Her last thought was of herself and those who benefitted by her ministrations will long revere her memory. Mrs. McClary was in Fredericton a few days before Christmas and met and talked with many of her friends. She was busy buying gifts for children and shutins at Springhill and in Fredericton and it is thought she may
have contracted a cold at that time. Pneumonia developed a week ago and her death this morning has closed a life well filled with good and abundant deeds and abundantly lived. In her passing Fredericton and Springhill have lost a woman whose good deeds will follow her. Her death will occasion sorrow wherever she was known. Mrs. McClary was a member of the York-Sunbury Historical Society and was deeply interested in its work, giving several valuable gifts as well as her support. She was a former member of the Women's Institute at Kingsclear and a silent worker in many good causes. She is survived by her husband, Harry A. McClary, and a step-daughter Mrs. Weymss Grant, Woodstock, and several nephews and nieces, one of whom. Miss Agnes Wharton of Jamaica Plains, Mass., was with her when she died. The funeral will take place on Monday afternoon with service at her late home at two o'clock by Rev. Dr. George E. Ross and interment made in Rural Cemetery, Fredericton.
NORSWORTHY -- At Dalhousie, N. B., on December 3rd, 1941, Mrs. Herbert R. Norsworthy, formerly Miss Mitchell of South Devon.

CHARLES S. BRANNEN, OLD RESIDENT, DIED HERE EARLY TO-DAY
Retired From Provincial Civil Service in 1918 After Thirty Years, RECALLED EARLY TIMES IN THIS CITY Married Sister of Late Canon Roberts -- Golden Wedding Observed in 1925.
Charles Sterling Brannen, one of Fredericton's oldest native residents, died this morning at his home, 148 Argyle Street, in the ninety-second year of his age. He was born in Fredericton May 8th, 1837, and resided here all his lifetime. For ten years he had been on the retired list of the Provincial Civil Service, having received superannuation in 1918 after thirty years in the office of the Provincial Secretary. In recognition of his long and faithful service the Imperial Service Medal
was presented to him shortly after his retirement. In the long period in which he was in the Provincial Civil Service he served under twelve Premiers. Throughout the entire period he was associated with the late R. W. L. Tibbits, Deputy Provincial Secretary.
The deceased was a son of Charles Brannen, for fifty-six years Deputy Sheriff and jailer of York county, and was born in the old jail which stood on the westerly side of King Street below Regent Street. After the death of his father W. W. Long was appointed to succeed him and the family removed to another residence.

CHARLES S. BRANNEN DIED HERE TO-DAY
(Continued from Page 12.)
of the late Dr. George Roberts, head-master of the Collegiate School which later became the Fredericton High School. The golden wedding was celebrated with appropriate ceremony three years ago. For many years Mr. Brannen was Senior Warden of the Parish Church of Fredericton of
which his brother-in-law the late Canon Roberts was rector for the greater part of his lifetime. Mrs. Brannen passed away about two years ago.
Thought his lifetime Mr. Brannen took the keenest interest in matters military and as he was an active man prior to the departure of the Imperial troops from Fredericton in 1869, his recollection of the various regiments, their officers and other ranks was of the brightest and he had many interesting reminiscences of them. Bands of music also were a subject of interest to him and in addition to the numerous fine military bands which were in Fredericton at various times, he recollected local bands of years ago. He himself played with the Masonic Band and other organizations in Fredericton. He also had clear recollection of law enforcement in York County.
Prior to taking a Provincial appointment Mr. Brannen was in business in this city retiring in 1878 to enter the civil service. He was a charter member of Victoria Lodge, I. O. O. F., and of his fellow members of the time Charles A. Sampson and John Black of this city are all who are left.
Surviving are one son, Sterling Brannen and one daughter Miss Adelaide G. Brannen, both of Fredericton. The funeral will take place Sunday afternoon from the late home. There will be prayers by Rev. A. F. Bate at the house at 3.10 and service at the Parish Church at 3.30 by Rev.
Mr. Bate assisted by Very Rev. Dean Neales. Interment will be made at Forest Hill.

OLDEST COTTON MILL WORKER SUCCUMBED SUDDENLY TO-DAY
John Stafford Dropped Dead While on Way to Work This Morning EMPLOYED AT MILL FORTY-EIGHT YEARS
Manager Joseph Dolphin Pays Tribute to Faithfulness of Deceased. Forty-eight years of faithful and continuous service as a cotton mill worker were terminated abruptly this morning when John Stafford, aged sixty-nine years, dropped dead at Marysville a short distance from his home, while on his way to work at the Gibson Mill of Canadian Cottons, Ltd.
Beginning his period of continuous employment in 1885, as a young man of twenty-one years, the deceased was the oldest worker at the mill in point of service. His service began when the mill, then the largest in Canada, in 1885 first started operation, having been built and owned at that time by the late Alexander Gibson, the founder of Marysville and a leading New Brunswick industrialist of his day. The late Mr. Stafford worked his way up through the various departments of the mill and for several years held the position of foreman of the finishing room. In the past few years he was employed in the office of the finishing room. Mr. Stafford had been in ill health for some time although he managed to "stick" to his job, and his death was due to a heart attack. He succumbed in Bridge Street at about 8.30 a. m. and was taken immediately to his home in Canada Street.
Manager Joseph Dolphin of the Gibson Mill, stated that Mr. Stafford had been "a very faithful worker." Despite the fact that the deceased had been in failing health recently he had continued at his work. "I'm sure that's the way John wanted to go," added Mr. Dolphin in paying his tribute.
A profound feeling of sympathy exists in Marysville for the family of the deceased, who was a native of the town and took a keen interest in its affairs.
The late Mr. Stafford was twice married, his first wife having died several years ago. He is survived by his second wife; two sons, Roy Stafford and James Stafford, of Rumford, Me.; four daughter, Mrs. Hedley Colpitts, of Hartland; Mrs. Mills, of Connecticut, and the Misses Christine Stafford and Felicia Stafford, of Marysville; and two brothers, Samuel and Fred Stafford, of Marysville.
The funeral will be held at the late home on Wednesday at 2.30 o'clock, the service being conducted by Rev. M. H. Manuel of Marysville, with Rev. C. LeRoi Mooers, of Devon, assisting. Interment will be in the United Church Cemetery at Marysville.
