    MacCulloch, Hugh A.
    Friday, April 29, 1904

      When friends have reached the alloted span of three score years and ten and old age sits wearily upon the close of their earthly careers, we look upon their deaths as having fought the good fight and gone to their reward after years well spent in this life, and younger ones scarce entered upon this troublesome sphere and are called home to a happier world. It is true we feel the parting, but are consoled with the thoughts that they are spared the stings and worries of this transitory life. It is when some loved one has just reached the age that promises much for this future career and happiness by their kind and amiable disposition have endeared themselves to us by the indissoluble bonds of affection then almost inperceptibly to lie down in sleep and wake not again on this earth. Death with all its dreaded realizations wrings the heart with better pangs. We refer to the sad death of a bright and promising young man in the person of Hugh A. MacCulloch, who was the victim of an accident in (Tacoma) Electron, Wash., on April 13th. The following is an account of the accident: While at work in lumber woods removing a boiler, which furnished water for a logging engine, in getting into position for use in some unaccountable way, the boiler over turned, and although some fifteen men were engaged in placing it, they found it impossible to control it. In an effort to get out of its path the unfortunate young man stepped backwards and came in contact with a stump which stood behind him and being unable to free himself, the falling boiler struck him on the chest. Mr. MacCulloch lived but a few minutes although he walked a distance of fifteen feet before he fell. His brother, James, who was present at the time, rushed to his assistance but found that he was beyond all earthly help. Word was immediately sent to his brother Alex, who was a resident of Garner, Wash., and arrived in Tacoma, Wash., on the 14th where arrangements were made for conveying the body home, the party leaving Tacoma on April 15th, arriving at Alexandria on Wednesday, april 20th. The remains being brought to his father’s residence, 12-6th Kenyon. The late Mr. MacCulloch, who was the third son of Mr. Alex. and Mary A. McCulloch, was born at Fassifern, May 1st, 1879, being therefor in his 25 year. Mr. MacCulloch spent some month in Glengarry four years ago, when he won for himself by his kind and amiable disposition a host of friends who will be pained to learn of his sad faith. Besides his aged parents he leaves to mourn his untimely death, three sisters and three brothers, namely, Roderick at home; Alex and James of Electron, Wash., who accompanied the remains home, and his sisters are, Mrs. A. D. McDougall, Alexandria; Mrs. A. A. McDonald, 1st Lochiel; and Miss Catherine, at home. Many beautiful floral offerings testified to the esteem in which deceased was held by his many friends in Washington. The funeral to St. Alexander Church, Lochiel, took place on thursday, 21st, and was largely attended, upwards of fifty carriages being in the funeral courtege. The pall-bearers were A.D. McCormick, John R. McCulloch, Stuart McCulloch, A. S. McDonald, D.J. McDonald and J. A. McCormick. -Contributed.

    March 31, 1893

      Last Friday, Mr. D. MacGillis, 5th Lan., received a telegram announcing the death of his youngest son Finlay. The bereavement being the result of an instantly fatal accident, was as a bolt from a clear sky for the afflicted parents. A letter had been received only a few days before from the young man stating that he had recovered from an illness and that he expected to return home shortly. He was lumbering in a timber near Oscoda, Michigan. On Friday he happened to be standing a few feet from where a pine was being felled. He retreated out of the way, but not far enough to be beyond the reach of a hemloch, which on being crashed by the falling pine, also came to the ground and in it’s descent hit poor Finlay full on the head extinguishing his young life in a second. His age was 19. This tragic occurrence besides being a dreadful shock to the MacGillis family, has deeply grieved all their acquaintances, among whom the young man was loved for his fine qualities and disposition. The remains arrived at Green Valley on Monday and the burial in St. Raphael’s churchyard took place amid a large concourse of friends on Tuesday of this week.

      On Tuesday evening the 29th April, the hospitable home of Mr. Norman R.

    Sheriff MacNab Passes Away

      Peaceful End of One of the Most Widely Known "Men From Glengarry" - Funeral on Tuesday Sheriff MacNab died at the old homestead, Breadalbane, on Sunday, 17th inst., after a short illness. Arch. MacNab, Esq., late Sheriff of the United Counties, was a son of the late Captain AlexanderMacNab of Breadalbane, and was born on the 20th January, 1825. After attending the public school in that section, Mr. MacNab applied himself to the occupation of agriculture, at times engaging in the lumbering business, for which he had a marked tasie. While yet a young man, he began to take an active part in municipal matters, and quickly mounted the ladder till he was elected Reeve of his native township, a position he held for a number of years, was one of the promoters, afterwards a director of the Montreal and City of Ottawa Junction Railway, representing Glengarry in the Dominion House from 1875 to 1878. During the Winnipeg boom in 1881, he embarked with his sons, the late Alexander and John A. MacNab, now of Buenos Aires, South America, in the real estate business in the Prairie city, and in 1887, was appointed License Inspector for the County, a position he held till 1897, when he was named Sheriff, which necessitated his removal to Cornwall. The late Sheriff fulfilled the several exacting duties of his office with much acceptance to the public as well as the legal fraternity, and his death, though not wholly unexpected, is keenly regretted. Two weeks ago to-day, on July 8th, the late Sheriff MacNab paid a visit to his Alexandria friends, and left that day for Vankleek Hill, where he took sick last week and went to the residence of his son, Duncan, who lives on the old homestead. There he died, in the same room in which he was born, nearly 80 years ago. The funeral took place on Tuesday to Breadalbane, where his remains were laid to rest beside those of his wife who predeceased him nearly 30 years. Rev. T. G. Thompson, of Vankleek Hill, conducted the service at the house, while Messrs, Jno. Simpson, J. A. McDougald, Jno. R. McLaurin, D. J. McMillan, J. F. Smart and N. J. McLeod officiated as pall-bearers. Among those present from a distance were, Mr. R. A. Campbell, Registrar, and Mrs. Campbell; Messrs. R. F. MacNab, Renfrew, and Geo. A. MacNab, Douglas, nephews of the deceased. During his political life, the late Mr. MacNab was a hard but fair hitter, and he was held in equal esteem by friend and opponent. In his younger days he was justly considered one of the best stump speakers in the province, and he stood in the front rank of Glengarry’s eloquent sons. (picture)

    Mr. Chas. Maville Meets with Sudden Death Saturday Evening.

      A well known gentleman in the person of Charles Maville, Esq., 2nd Kenyon, passed suddenly away on Saturday evening last, as the result of a run away accident.

    Extended Notice re the late Dan H. McDonald

      We copy the following extended obituary notice re the late Dan H. McDonald, from the Call, of Phillipsburg, Montana, of May 4th. Our readers will remember that his death was referred to in these columns two weeks ago. -Ed. News. The community was shocked yesterday morning to learn that Dan H. McDonald, who went to Chicago two weeks ago to have an operation performed, had died Monday night at the Mercy hospital in that city. Mr. McDonald was taken ill of a stomach trouble about six weeks ago. His ailment was a mysterious one and seemed to baffle medical skill. At one moment he would suffer excruciating pain in one portion of his abdomen and shortly afterward the pain would shift to some other portion. After such periods of suffering he would apparently be feeling as well as ever, only to be again taken with a relapse. His physicians and friends advised him to seek the best medical aid and after he was able to be about he made preparations at once for a trip to Chicago. Before leaving he was walking around the streets and although weak and emaciated in body he did not seem to be in any immediate danger of death. He left here two weeks ago, accompanied by his wife and two children and proceeded to Chicago, arriving there Friday evening in apparently good health. He was operated upon on the following Wednesday at Mercy hospital by the celebrated Dr. Murphy and until the sudden news of his death reached here his friends in Phillipsburg were of the opinion that he was recovering. The telegram announcing his death was sent by Mrs. McDonald to Peter H. McDonald and simply stated that Mr. McDonald was dead and that his body would be taken to Green Valley, Ontario, Canada, where Mrs. McDonald’s folks reside. Peter McDonald, who is a brother of the deceased, immediately left by team for Drummond where he expected to catch a belated east bound train. He will proceed at once to Ontario, as the body will have been shipped from Chicago by the time he reaches that city. Dan McDonald was born about 45 years ago near Alexandria, Ontario, Canada, where his early youth was spent. He came to Montana about eighteen years ago, and for a time was engaged in mining. He was employed in the early days at the Granite mines. Later he became associated in business with L. N. Van Vranken and Charles Autherson and was a member of the firm at the time of his death. A letter received in Phillipsburg to-day from Dr. Murphy, and written immediately after the operation, was to the effect that the operation was successful. Dr. Murphy stated that Mr. McDonald was suffering from an abscess of the bowels. The abscess had been removed and according to the surgeon the patient was in good condition. This would indicate that Mr. McDonald’s death was not the result of the operation and the belief is prevalent among the physicians here that it was due to heart failure, Mr. McDonald having frequently complained of heart weakness during his illness. Mrs. McDonald and children will return to Phillipsburg in a few weeks. she is completely prostrated by the sad event. Mr. McDonald’s death will be mourned by a large circle of friends in Phillipsburg and vicinity. he was an upright citizen of the community and in his private life was no blemish. As a husband and father he was the ideal of unostentatious devotion, strenghtening day by day and year by year the bonds of affection that though now riven, will ever serve to keep his memory green and sweet with those he left behind. No appeal for aid for a worthy cause was ever unheeded and while not effusive in his friendships or charity he was ever ready to help the needy and afflicted. Mr. McDonald was a member of Selish Tribe of Red Men of this city. He leaves considerable property here and at Lewistown, Montana.

He underwent an operation and was apparently recovering when he suddenly took a turn for the worst and passed away on Tuesday of this week. He is survived by his widow, a daughter of the late Angus McGillis, Lochiel, and three children who accompanied the remains home.

Taken off in the prime of his life, never known to be ailing, it was a shock to his friends to hear the news. Ranald had been employed as bartender in a. Bonneville’s saloon the past six months. Yesterday, Thursday, he complained of pain in the region of his heart, but stuck to his post and did not deam it necessary to consult a physician. At 1:12 in the afternoon, George F. Braun stepped into the saloon to hand him a package which came by express. He was sitting in the chair, his head resting in his hands which laid on the table, and told George it was "all right". At 1:30 Miss Hilda Bonneville entered the room on some business and discovered him dead in the sitting posture as he was seen shortly before. Doctor Taylor was summoned and he pronounced it a case of heart failure. Justice George Clark then held the inquest, the jury rendering a verdict in accordance with the facts. The body was taken to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Allan Kennedy, where it was prepared for burial. Funeral services occurred at the Catholic church at 10 o’clock to-day, Friday. The procession was led by St. John the Baptist’s Court C. O. F., the six pall-bearers being members of this order, and was attended by a large number of mourning friends of the deceased.

He was about 34 years old and was born in St. Raphaels, Canada. A number of brothers and sisters survive him. His sudden death is deplored generally, for he was a man possessing many excellent qualities, was sober and industrious, and never made enemies.

    Sister Margaret Mary

      For the first time, the angel death, has knocked at the "Cloister Door," of this little community and stolen from its ranks one of our cherished members, in the bloom of youth and usefulness. The fair bud was not destined to flourish in this terrestrial vale, but in the eternal garden of Paradise. Sister Margaret Mary was a daughter of the late Alexander McDonell of Alexandria, and was born in that town twenty-seven years ago. She entered the Novitiate of the H. D. of St. Joseph, Cornwall, in 1899, and made her final vows July 24th, 1901. Since her entrance into the ranks of this active little band of Hospitallers she ever proved herself one of its true and loyal members, always beaming with zeal and animation to promote God’s power and glory, and to increase the well being of her neighbors in whose cause she had cheerfully sacrificed home and all family ties, just at the age when nature appreciates these bonds most dearly. On the 25th of April, she suffered from an attack of pleurisy, which developed into acute decline, and on the 22nd August, this dread disease ended her earthly career. The funeral took place from the Sister’s House, corner of York and Water Sts., on Thursday a.m. to St. Columbus Church, where a solemn Requiem High Mass was celebrated by Rev. D. A. Campbell, of St. Raphael’s, assisted by Vicar-General Corbett, Dean Twomey, Williamstown. There were also present Revs. J. E. McRae, Alexandria; J. M. Foley, Lancaster; J. Bourget, St. Regis, M. J. Leahy and A. J. McMillan, Cornwall East, and A. A. McRae, St. Columbus. When leaving the Sisters’ dwelling it was very impressive to see her six Novitiate companions who were her pall-bearers, handing her remains to the following gentlemen who were standing outside, Messrs. A. McDougall, M. Broderick, H. B. Cavanagh, W. Burns, J. A. Chisholm and L. Marquis.

McGillis, of that place, but formerly of Alexandria, after an illness from Typhoid Fever fo some two weeks duration. The sad news spread quickly and on all sides were heard sincere expressions of regret of the sudden termination of a life full of promise. The subject of this sketch who was in his 35th year at the time of his death, was a son of the late Donald McGillis, Esq., one of the early pioneers of this town. He was educated at the Boys Separate School and took a prominent part in all athletic games. He was at all time courteous and won many friends for himself among all classes of the community. At an early age his inclinations drew him to railroading with the result that in April, 1892, he joined the staff of the C.A.R. as brakeman. From the day of his entry into the company’s service he displayed that fidelity which won for him well merrited promotion. After serving several years on the main line, between Ottawa and Cotean, the deceased was transferred to the Hawkesbury branch, where for a period of three or four years, he labored in the company’s interest and consequently added to his list of friends, filling the different positions, until he was appointed conductor.

On the 30th April, 1902, he married, in Montreal, Margaret, daughter of the late Archibald Gillis, Esq., who for several years was a resident to Alexandria, and immediately took up housekeeping at Swanton, being shortly afterwards joined by his mother Mrs. Donald McGillis. the union was a happy one and was blessed with a daughter, now ten months old. Typhoid fever, at present, is very prevalent at Swanton, there being over forty cases in that town. To that disease, Mr. McGillis fell a victim , though he at first thought it an attack of grippe, and passed away suddenly on Saturday, May 7th. Mr. John Maloney, master of Ottawa River Lodge 185, O.R.T., and Mr. W.J. Keevil, See’y, were at once notified and left immediately for Swanton to take charge of the remains and arrange for the inerment of the body in Alexandria, which took place on Monday morning.

    Mrs. A. F. McIntyre

      At her residence, Elgin Street, Ottawa, there passed away on Sunday last, a well known daughter of Glengarry, in the person of Mrs. A. F. McIntyre, wife of the well known K. C. of that city, after a long and painful illness. Mrs. McIntyre was a daughter of the late Ranald Sandfield McDonald, Esq., of South Lancaster, a neice of the late Hon. John Sandfield McDonald, at one time Premier of this province, and also of the late Hon. D. A. McDonald, ex-Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. Her family consists of one son, Donald, and Miss Denny, both of the Post Office Department, and Mrs. Thomas Hawson, of New York. The deceased was most widely and popularly known in political and social circles in the Capital, the most prominent leaders in the Liberal party, whose principles she warmly espoused, were frequent visitors at her residence. In the generous hospitality dispensed by her and her husband political ties were completely effaced and the members of both parties received equal consideration at her hands. Having a penchon for literature, Mrs. McIntyre was highly esteemed in literary circles, one of her productions being a most excellent handbook of Ottawa, the merits of which elicited from Lord Minto praise of the highest character. She was a frequent contributor to the press of that city, many gems of wit, humor and sound judgement giving evidence of her bright intellect. The remains were consigned to their last resting place in Beechwood cemetery, Ottawa, on Tuesday afternoon in the presence of a very numberous concourse of relatives and sympathising friends, including members of the Dominion Cabinet, Judicary, Civil Service and residents generally. As an evidence of the regard and esteem in which the late Mrs. McIntyre was held we append the following editorial note taken from a leading Ottawa journal: "Many Ottawans and many people who are now far away from Ottawa, will learn with deep sorrow of the death of Mrs. A. F. McIntyre. Ever gentle, unassuming, kind and tactful, Mrs. McIntyre was an enthusiastic politician, as became her birth and her early surroundings. She was, indeed, a helpmate to her husband in days of storm as well as in the days of prosperity. Suffering intensly for the past year, she never murmered at the pain with which she was afflicted but, like the brave Scot that she was, took it all as part of life’s battle. Those who knew her, loved her and they will all miss her."
