    Brennan, Flora
    Friday, January 6, 1905

      The sympathy of a large section goes out to County Councillor John Brennan, of Sand Point, on the sad death of Mrs. Brennan on Christmas eve. Mr. and Mrs. Brennan proposed to drive to midnight mass at Arnprior; but the night was so severe that it was thought well one of them should stay home. At one time it was proposed that Mrs. Brennan and their 17 year old son should go; but as the thermometer kept going down, Mrs. Brennan decided not to make the trip. About eleven o’clock Mrs. Brennan went out to look about the premises and by some chance was led to go down a not often used outside cellarway. At the top she slipped, and one foot catching to the open step she was thrown forward, her head downward and her foot held fast. Her cries reached her daughters, fifteen and eight years of age, and they ran out. One eased her mother’s head, as requested, while the other alarmed the neighbours. Help came quickly, and the step was chopped away to release the foot. In all probablility this did not take five minutes; but when she was lifted out, Mrs. Brennan was dead. She was a large woman, and had lately been troubled a good deal with her heart. The deceased before her marriage was Miss Flora McDonald, and she was a very capable woman. There was a large attendance of friends at the funeral. - Renfrew Mercury. The Mrs. Brennan referred to in the above was a Glengarry lady. She was a daughter of the late Ranald McDonald, blacksmith, 16-1 Lochiel, and was about 42 years of age at the time of her death. Prior to her marriage, the deceased taught school at Arnprior as assitant teacher, a brother of hers being principal of the same school, and a strange coincidence is that she was the first teacher of Sister St. James, Superior of St. Margaret’s Convent here. The late Mrs. Brennan was a second cousin of His Lordship Bishop Macdonell.

At the time of his death the boy was but ten years and three months, and gave promise of a bright future. The cause of his death was rheumatism and complications of pneumonia and inflamation. During his three weeks illness he bore his sufferings bravely. By his indious and clever manners at school, he had endeared himself to his teacher by his cheerful and kindly ways, he won the heart of his fellow pupils and friends, and by his kind and dutiful devotion to his parents, brothers and sisters, he enthroned himself in their hearts forever. The funeral service was preached by Rev. Mr. Gollan of Dunvegan, at the home of the deceased, where a large crowd of sympathizers had gathered to show their sympathy for the bereaved. At half-past one on Monday afternoon, the funeral procession, of over fifty carriages, left the house for Dunvegan cemetery where the remains were interred in their last resting place. Besides his parents, the deceased leaves four brothers and five sisters to mourn his early demise. The pall bearers were, Messrs. Angus Campbell, Kenny McDonald, B. Campbell and R. Chisholm.

    February 12, 1915

      A very sad accident occurred at New Westminster, BC, on January 23rd, 1915, when Mr. John Hugh Chisholm, son of Mr. and Mrs. John A. Chisholm of Skye, Ont., was killed in a quarry. The deceased had been employed as an engineer in the British Columbia Transport Company’s quarry for over two years, and was not only a faithful employee, but was also popular among all with whom he came in contact. At the time of the accident, Mr. Chisholm was engaged on night shift. A very heavy blast was set off, which blew the whole side of the mountain into Pitt River, causing a huge tidal wave to sweep in. Everything was completely submerged, with the exception of the steam shovel on which Mr. Chisholm was employed. Mr. Chisholm was last seen about 10 minutes before the explosion. He was speaking to one of the workmen and it seems remained to see the blast go off. Immediately after they parted the explosion took place, and while Mr. Chisholm was either killed by a rock or swept away by the giant wave is unknown, his comrade was rescued. The bodies of the three victims have not been recovered and although several attempts have been made to recover them, they have so far been unsuccessful, and it is doubtful if they will ever be recovered. Mr. Chisholm was 33 years of age at the time of his death and besides his sorrowing wife he leaves to mourn his loss, his father and mother, four brothers and five sisters, namely, Alexander, on the homestead, Skye, Ont., Dan B.

T. Schell Co. for some time.  He was also associated with prominent contractors and at all times his work commended itself to those immediately concerned.  He was one of Alexandria’s leading young citizens, a man of few words, but the possessor of many sterling qualities.  He was a devout member of the congregation of St. Finnan’s and his deep Christian and moral worth was an inspiration to all.  Deceased who was in his 45th year was born at Rollo Bay, P.E.I., being the son of the late Mr. Simon Deagle of that place.  He is survived by his widow and four sons, Eugene, student of Ste. Therese College, Miles, Finnan and Francis, at home.  He also leaves to mourn his passing two brothers, Rev. A. Deagle of St. Rose of Lima Rectory, Kankakee, Ill., and Mr. Joseph Deagle of Rollo Bay, P.E.I.  Another brother Mr. James Deagle made the supreme sacrifice in the late war.  The remains arrived Sunday morning, 8th inst. and were met at the station by a large number of sympathizing friends and conveyed to the family residence, Ottawa St.  The funeral on Monday morning to St. Finnan’s Cathedral was under the joint auspices of Glengarry Council K. of C. and St. Alexander Court C. O. F., of which organizations he was an honored member.  Requiem High Mass was chanted by Rev. C. F. Gauthier, while Rev. J. W. Dulin of the Church of the Sacred Heart, here, and Rev. Chas. Bishop, of Lochiel, occupied seats in the sanctuary.  The pallbearers were Messrs. John Angus McMillan, Antoine Chenier, F. T. Costello, Fred. Bouchard, John Boyle and Jos. Lalonde.  As might be expected the funeral was a large and thoroughly representative one, further acknowledgement of his worth and the intense sympathy entertained for the bereaved relatives.  Among those from a distance present were Rev. A. Deagle, Kankakoo, Ill., Miss Isabel St. Denis, of Cobalt, Angus A. J. Macdonell, of...

    Grant, John A.
    Friday, November 18, 1904

      John Angus Grant, aged 70 years, an old and highly respected resident of the South Branch, met with a fatal accident at noon on Monday of last week. He was driving into Cornwall with his daughter Mrs. A. R. McDonald, wife of the proprieter of the Carleton House, who had been spending Sunday at her old home in the country. Just north of the fair grounds the bolt holding the shafts broke, and the horse ran away, throwing both occupants into the ditch.

He became unconscious shotly after the accident, and remained in that condition until his death about 11 p.m. on Wednesday.

    Grant, Lewis A.
    Friday, January 6, 1905

      In a recent issue it was our sad duty to chronicle the death of an ex-Glengarrian, in the person of Mr. Lewis A. Grant, of Los Angeles, Cal. The following tribute to his memory taken from "The Tidings" of that southern city will be read with interest by Mr. Grant’s many Glengarry friends. The death of Mr. Lewis A. Grant has cast a shadow of sadness over the Catholic community of Los Angeles that will be long in passing. Coming as it did, with suddenness, the report of it meant a distant shock for those who knew him intimately. Among those not knowing him, to whom had reached the broadening circle of his kindness and his gentleness, there cannot but be last regret for his passing. Among such his loss is shared generally by the people of the city. But it is rather among those to whom he was a friend, who knew by contact his disinterested efforts to make smooth the rough places in the way of those about him, to do good for his own sake, to keep up by his own example the faith of his friends in the ultimate success of right doing - it is among those that the sense of personal loss is keenest. For, in spite of the first impression of Christian gentlemanliness that one had on meeting him, it was only by a fuller friendship with him, that an adequate idea of the personal influence for good he exercised among his friends could be obtained. In this respect the vacancy caused by his death cannot be filled.

Some nine months ago she was taken ill, and though the best medical attendance possible was secured, she gradually failed in health.
