CONNOLLY, Rev. Daniel
DEATH OF A PASTOR
Rev. Daniel Connolly of Cataraqui, is no more. On Sunday morning (29 Oct. 1882) at 4.30 o’clock his spirit left the body mortal and wended its way to the God who gave it. Rev. Mr. Connolly has been unwell since last July, his illness beginning with liver complaint. This led to a complication of diseases and latterly his sufferings have been intense and without cessation. Some months ago his physicians ordered a change of air. He left for Montreal where he remained for a time, then he took a voyage by boat to Hamilton and return. He visited his father-in-law at L’Orignal, and about ten days ago returned to Kingston very unwell. He was met at the station by Rev. Dr. Elliott, who drove him home. Since then his life has hung by a thread.

The last twenty-four hours of his life were comparatively free from pain and with great resignation, he awaited the final dissolution. The parting with his wife and eight children (six sons and two daughters) was extremely affecting. He left them to the care of Him who promised to be a “Father of the Fatherless”. He trusted fully in the Saviour and died as he had lived. One of his last acts though enfeebled by pain was to repeat the XXIII Psalm - “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou are with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.” This fully showed the spiritual condition of the dying preacher.

The deceased was 47 years of age. He was born in London, England and early in life emigrated to this country. As to his early history we can secure no data, but in 1857 he entered the Ministry of the Wesleyan Methodist Church and was accepted on trial. In 1861 he was received in full connexion and ordained. He has occupied many fields of labor, prominent amongst them being Morris, St.Mary’s, Howick, Stratford, Paisley, Kincardine, L’Orignal, Richmond, Sherbrooke and Newburg. He remained for three years in Newburg circuit and at the last meeting of the Montreal Conference, was appointed to Cataraqui.

He had only settled in his new home when serious illness came and his pastoral work was taken by Rev. W.D.Brown. In 1869-70-71 he was Financial Secretary of the District in which he was stationed. At the last meeting of the Conference, he was made Financial Secretary of the Kingston District.

Dr. Elliott of this city, who was his most intimate friend, says that “there were few men better fitted for the position.” The Doctor was much affected by his death. In giving a few biographical notes of him he said: “Daniel Connolly was one of the best men of the land. He was shy, sensitive and retiring, often at a loss to himself. He was as unmoveable as a rock when stability was required. A more upright, truth living, independent man I never knew, and he has been my best friend for many years. He was no orator or rhetorician, but he was a logician. He is well read, few better in theology, medicine and civil law. No one, on general information was more perfect. As a preacher he was above the ordinary, slow but thoughtful.

He often preached longer than the tastes of the present day suggests, but his matter was good. He was modest and kind; an energetic worker for the Master as his labors on every circuit showed. He left each field of labor in a sound, healthy condition. This is one of the best records a minister can leave. Many who have listened to his ministrations will with regret hear of his death. It would be unnecessary to dilate upon his moral and religious excellencies.

The strongest statements that can be made will not be disputed by anyone who knew the unassuming minister who has now been gathered to his fathers.”

During Mr. Connolly’s illness, he was frequently visited by the pastors of the city Methodist churches. His colleague, Rev. Thomas Buchanan was constantly with him, day and night, nursing him with the tenderest care. It was surprising that he could be so vigilant. The decease’s last illness was of such a short duration that few people in the neighborhood were aware of it. Besides this, his acquaintance with his parishioners was limited. His illness had prevented his visiting them.

Tomorrow the funeral occurs when the remains will be consigned to the grave by his sorrowing brethren in the District, who, for the first time in many years, have thus been bereaved.

The widow and children receive the heartfelt sympathy of many friends in this hour of their sad affliction.

As recorded Monday, October 30, 1882 in the British Whig Daily (Stauffer Library, Queen’s University, April,2001)

During his lifetime he had been a strong supporter of every good cause and very capably filled all positions of trust committed to his care, particularly as secretary at the Verona School Board.

In speaking of the death of Dr. Genge, a very close friend said “In his medical profession many a pillow he smoothed and rough road he straightened for his fellow traveller’s along life’s highway. He gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children. He filled his place and accomplished his task. He never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty in music, literature and art or failed to express it. He looked for the best in others and gave the best he had. His life was an inspiration and his memory a benediction.

The late Dr. Genge was a member of the Anglican church and the Odd Fellows Lodge No. 297 Parham. The surviving members of the family are his widow, formerly Florence Bertrim, three sisters, Mrs. James Walker of Sydenham, Mrs. E. A. Tallen of Tichborne and Mrs. F. Harris of Tichborne and three brothers J. Genge of Verona, E. Genge of Oneida, N.Y. and H. Genge of Ottawa. A number of neices and nephews also survive.

The funeral will be held on Sunday afternoon at one o’clock standard time from his residence and thence to St. James Anglican Church, Parham at 2.30 p.m. standard time. Internment will take place in Parham Cemetery. (1870-1934)

GERMAIN, William
IN MEMORIAM
The Late William Germain
William Germain, one of the oldest residents of Pittsburg, who died at his house, July 12th, was a son of a tenant farmer, living within three miles of Leeds, England, and was born 1808. At the age of eighteen years he joined the army, and during the troubles in Canada, in 1836-1837, was one of a detachment of regulars who volunteered to cross the Atlantic to assist in quelling the disturbances. When they landed in Halifax they were transferred to ___(illegible) Canal boats which brought them up the St. Lawrence as far as Montreal. They then took to marching and tramped through the woods to Amherstberg. Mr. Germain saw the Carolina, the steamer engaged in carrying food to MacKenzie, and his followers on Navy Island, go over the Niagara Falls. While still very young he was promoted to sergt.-major, and a short while later to quarter-master. He was a good scholar and penman. After leaving the regular army he received the commission of senior captain in the militia, and was stationed at Niagara. After two years service in the militia he tired ofmilitary life, and, removing to Pittsburg, engaged in farming. He was married in 1841 to Mary A Hughes, eldest daughter of Robert Hughes, of the Gore of Pittsburg, by whom he had eight children. In February, 1860, he lost his beloved wife, but was subsequently married to Elizabeth J McLean, daughter of John McLean, Sr. of Pittsburg, and by this wife had also eight children. He was a remarkably healthy man, very cheerful in disposition, being bright and active, until within 36 hours of his death, the terrible heat of the previous week brining on a prostration from which he could not rally.

Politically, Mr. Germain was a strong liberal, but not a bigoted one, and was always willing to defend his position by fair argument. He scorned to pander to popular feeling, and only acted in what he believed to be an honest way. A good specimen of the honest independent yeoman he took the liveliest interest in the welfare of his country, and was foremost in movements calculated to advance its progress. He was cut off suddenly, but not before he had done his duty to his country and family. He lived to see his large family grow up and become prosperous, trained by him to be useful members of society, and to be a pride and honor to him in his old age. His memory will be held at large in grateful recollection by all who cherish strict integrity, honest manly independence, and perservering well-rewarded industry.

GOOD, John
PARHAM MAN WAS DROWNED IN WELL
Mystery of Disappearance of John Good Has Been Solved
Word has just been received in the city, clearing up the mystery surrounding the death of John Good, aged 80 years, who, after being missed for three days, was found drowned in the well on his own farm, three miles west of Parham. Mr. Good was last seen by his neighbours, and was not seen again until his body was found in the well by his son who lives near the scene of the tragedy.

Search parties scoured the district finding no trace of the missing farmer. Over the week-end, however, the body was found in the well, an old-fashioned structure.

Deceased lived alone and it is believed that he slipped while getting a pail of water on Thursday evening. His sons do not live near enough to hear any calls for help that Mr. Good might have made. It was decided that the death was accidental and no inquest necessary.

The late Mr. Good was buried at Parham on Monday afternoon, many people attending the funeral and sympathizing with the bereaved family. Surviving are a daughter, Mrs. W. Arney, Tichborne; and two sons, Franklin and Arthur, both of whom live near the homestead.

Dr. G. Frederick Goodfellow Dies in Ontario Hospital
Stricken with a coronary thrombosis at his Parham, Ontario summer home 11 days ago, Dr. George Frederick Goodfellow, Saratoga Springs eye, ear and throat specialist, died in the General Hospital in Kingston, Ontario about 10:00pm yesterday. He was 50.

Popular in his social life here, he was regarded by this colleagues as one of the finest of surgeons in his chosen specialties.

Dr. Goodfellow was born in Parham, Ontario, Oct. 12, 1888, a son of John and Agnes McLeod Hamilton Goodfellow, who were natives of the same province. It was to see King George and Queen Elizabeth that he went to Canada. He spent his boyhood on the home farm and attended the district school until he was 14, when he left his books. He resumed his education at 20, when he became a high school student. After graduation, he matriculated at Queens University, which he left at the outbreak of the World War to join the Canadian forces.

He was ordered to England in 1915. After serving there, he was sent to Cairo, Egypt and next to LeTreport in the department of Seine-Inferleure, France.

Later, he served at Canadian General Base Hospital No. 7 at Etampes, France and was also assigned to the Canadian Stationary Hospital.

Almost exactly 17 years ago, on May 31, 1922, he came to Saratoga Springs and since that time practiced in association with his brother, Dr. Thomas J. Goodfellow, also an outstanding specialist in the same diseases.

Dr. Goodfellow was a senior surgeon at the Saratoga Hospital here, where with his brother, he conducted for many years free clinics for persons unable to pay for examinations or treatments.

Surviving are his wife, Helen D. Allen Goodfellow, who joined him with their daughter Dale and his brother when he was stricken, an infant son, Frederick Thomas Goodfellow and his brother Dr. Thomas J. Goodfellow, all of this city.

IN MEMORIAM
GEORGE FREDRICK GOODFELLOW, M.D., C.M., F.A.C.S.
Oct.12, 1888 -------- June 2, 1939.
"Those whom the gods love, die young."
We think no eulogy of ours would befit the character of him who has been prematurely and precipitately removed from our midst so well as the story of his last few months during which, we now know, there came to him the alarming realization that his days were numbered. With customary courage and reticence he accepted the inevitable, Quietly, efficiently he brought his accounts to order. With perseverance he completed his case records. Methodically he performed his numerous daily duties. Generously he gave of his limited energies to those in distress without regard for self. And, finally, turning to personal affairs he made a tedious journey to his boyhood home where his attention was needed. There, despite prescience or premonition he did not shirk physical exertion during which his final illness came upon him. We whose privilege it was to collaborate with him in the conduct of our professional or personal affairs, or both, bear witness to his many sterling qualities, to his devotion as husband and father, to his fun loving, generous, sunny disposition, and to his courageous soul which so unflinchingly met its Master.

We shall miss him more than we can tell. Robert S, Hayden M.D.; Fredrick G. Eaton M.D.; Scott Towers? M.D. Saratoga Hospital Staff

HOWES, Geroge
George Howes died August 4, 1935.
Residents of Parham community were sorry to learn of the passing of George R. Howes after an illness of only twenty four hours' duration.

Born in Parham, on August 18, 1869 a son of Andrew Howes and his wife Elizabeth Goodfellow, his entire life was spent in this locality where he was engaged in farming. Of a quiet, unassuming nature, Mr. Howes was held in high esteem by his many friends. Since an operation for the removal of a kidney in February, 1922, Mr. Howes has not been in robust health, but was able to attend to his duties until Saturday night when he was suddenly taken ill. Dr. Goodfellow pronounced the illness was due to perforated ulcers of the stomach, and despite everything that was done, he passed away early Sunday evening.

In October 1895, Mr. Howes was united in marriage to Britannia Black, also of Parham, and from this union, four sons were born, Earl, Roy, Hubert and Tommie, all residing in Wagarville. The funeral which was held at the home was largely attended and was in charge of Rev. Redding, Tamworth, in the absence of Rev. Cantrell of Parham. Rev. Mr. Cameron, Parham, assisted in the service both at the home and at the grave. Mr. Redding spoke feelingly on " O Grave, Where Is Thy Victory" and a duet, "When We Come to the End of the Long, Long Road." was sung by Mrs. Fred Harris and Mrs. D.J. Howes, Tichborne. Three brothers and three cousins carried the remains to his last resting place, namely Ross, D.J., Wm. A., A. B., Geo. T., and Thos. Howes. The flowers were carried by his grandchildren Jean, Glenn and Marion Howes and nephew Mervin Howes.

Besides his widow and four sons there are left to mourn his loss, three sisters: Mrs. Peter Ritchie of Trenton, Mrs. David Drew of Kirkland Lake and Dora, Parham; also three brothers, David John of Tichborne, Andrew Ross, on the old homestead, and Wm. A. of Kirkland Lake.

HOWES, Richard Francis
Late R. F. Howes of Parham
He died Dec. 15, 1915
It was with great sorrow and regret that the family and friends of Richard Francis Howes, late of Parham, heard of his somewhat unexpected passing away on Christmas morning. Although he had been in ill health for many months past, it had been hoped by his family that his final parting would be deferred, as he had left Parham and removed with his wife and child to the home of his wife's parents, near Campbellford, hoping for benefit from the change of air. Whilst residing in Parham he held for some months the position of church warden but his ill-health obliged him to resign the office . He leaves a widow and little daughter, also widowed mother, four brothers, George R., Wagarville; David J., Tichborne; Andrew R., Parham and William A., Cobalt, also three sisters, Mrs. Peter Ritchie, Kingston; Mrs. David Drew, Long Lake; and Miss Dora at home.

The internment, attended by a large gathering of sympathetic friends, took place at Parham on Tuesday, Dec. 28th. The burial service was taken by Rev. W. G. Lansbury, followed by the customary rites of the fraternities of the I.O.O.F. and the Chosen Friends, Brothers Hamilton and Cronk officiating. Many floral tributes were sent in by friends including a beautiful wreath from the Oddfellow's Society.
