McLaurin (who was killed in action in France on June 14, 1916) was held in the Presbyterian Church, Vankleek Hill, on Sunday evening, June 25.  There was a very large attendance made up of all the various Christian denominations from the town and surrounding country.  The following clergy men were present and occupied seats on the platform:  Rev. C. A. Ferguson and Rev. A. Lee, Presbyterian, Rev. G. Elliot, Baptist, Rev. H. Hunter Hillis, Methodist, and Rev. W. Burton Morgan, Anglican.  Rev. H. H. Hillis read the scripture lesson from Revelations, 22 chapter, and Rev. A. Lee offered up a very earnest prayer.  Hymns nos.  331, 334 and 161 in the Presbyterian Book of Praise were sung during the services.  Rev. G. Elliot, Pastor of the Baptist Church, preached a very appropriate and comforting sermon from Revelations, 14.13 “Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord, from henceforth.  Yea saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors, and their works do follow them.”  ? sympathetic addresses were given by Rev. C. A. Ferguson, Rev. H. H. Hillis and Rev. W. B. Morgan.  The services throughout were very impressive and all of the large assembly present seemed to feel the deep solemnity of the occasion.  The late Lieut.  Howard J. McLaurin is the second son of our worthy townsman, Mr. John R. McLaurin, who has given his life on the battlefield, while fighting for his King and country.  A younger son, Douglas C., having been killed in action in France on the 5th of April last, and an elder son, William, is now serving in the ranks, prepared to battle and if needs be to die for the noble cause of Liberty and Right.  Surely Mr. McLaurin has furnished his full quota of volunteers.  The sorely afflicted parents and also the brothers and sisters of the deceased have the sincere sympathy of the community generally in their sad bereavement.

A sumptuous wedding supper was served, the table being artistically decorated with carnations, the bride’s favorite flower, and smilax. The bride is the beautiful and accomplished daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Webster, who for many years have made their home at Webster, and for whom the vaillage was named. Mrs. McNaughton is an accomplished musician, and possesses a character of the purest sweetness. She has a circle of friends which includes all who know her.

McRae, who recently returned after nearly three years active service in France and Flanders.  The evening was pleasantly spent in games, songs and speeches, after which the “guest of honor” was presented with the appended address, a handsome club bag and an amply filled purse for which he in a few well chosen words, acknowledged the gifts and compliment paid him and expressed his happiness at being back in Canada again.  Gunner McRae enlisted for home service in spring of 1915 doing duty at Three Rivers, but realizing his need overseas and the duty he owed his country and the dear ones at home, gave up everything to take his place among Canada’s fighting men.  He enlisted early in June 1916 with the “6th McGill Siege Battery” afterwards being changed to the “7th Canadian Seige Battery”.  The singing of Auld Lang Syne and God Save the King, brought to a close a most enjoyable evening, which will long be remembered by Gunner McRae and his many friends.

Moren, Arthur F. S.
Friday, July 22, 1904
Laid to Rest Remains of late Arthur F.S. Moren Interred at Cornwall

    We regret to announce the death of Arthur F. S. Moren, a ggrandson of the late Judge Pringle, which occurred at Cornwall on Friday, the 15th inst. Mr. Moren, familiarly known as "Dick" Moren, was born at Halifax, NS, thirty-five years ago. His father, Arthur Moren, M.D., of that city was a prominent physician and those of our readers who have pursued the late Principal Grant’s interesting volume entitled "From Ocean to Ocean", treating of his trip across the Dominion long prior to the construction of the Canadian Pacific, may not be aware that the late Dr. Moren figured prominently in that work under the title of "The Doctor." The late Dick Moren had early leanings towards H. M. Navy and at one time expected to adopt that profession, but owing to the death of his father, his intentions were not carried into effect. For a number of years past Mr. Moren resided in Cornwall, and his genial disposition and ready participation in athletic sports and other manly pastimes rendered him very popular and his death at a comparatively early age, will be much regretted by all those who had the pleasure of coming into contact with him. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, from Mrs. Judge Pringle’s. The services at Trinity Church and at the grave were conducted by Rev. P. L. Houston, Pastor, assisted by the Rev. Gower Poole. The following gentlemen acted as pall-bearers, Messrs. C. H. Cline, Wm. Mack, G. Milden, A. McDonald, J. A. Sauriol and N. Clark. The respect and esteem in which the deceased was deservedly held was evidenced by the very large and representative gathering of citizens and friends from a distance. To the bereaved mother and other relatives, we beg to tender our warmest and most sincere sympathy and condolence.

The deceased whose maiden name was Janet McDermid, was a daughter of the late Hugh McDermid, who came from Scotland in 1802 and settled in the Island west of Martintown, where the subject of this sketch was born over 80 years ago. In January 1844, she married the late Donald M. Munro, Esq., whose death occurred 8 years ago. From the time of her marriage until the end came, she resided at Glen Roy, and as a result of her stirling character and generous disposition made for herself a host of friends who deeply regret her death. Some three weeks ago she came to visit her son Hugh here, when she had an attack of pneumonia, which resulted in her death. Notwithstanding the very inclement weather, the funeral service, which was conducted by Rev. D. MacLaren, assisted by Rev. Jas. Cormack of Maxville, on Tuesday, was very largely attended, the employees of the carriage works attending in a body. At the conclusion of the service the remains were conveyed to the North Branch Cemetery, Martintown, where interment took place. Messrs. John McIntosh, J. Lockie Wilson, P.A. Ferguson, and W. Forester were pall-bearers. The late Mrs. Munro leaves a brother and sister, as well as a family of two sons and seven daughters. Her brother Dermid of the "Island" aged 86 years, and her sister Mrs. Donald McPherson, of Lancaster, is 96 years of age - certainly a remarkable record in longevity. Her children are Hugh, senior member of the Munro and McIntosh Carriage Co., Murdoch J., and Miss Annie, on the homestead; Mrs. D. Aubrey, Malone, N.Y.; Mrs. D. Cummings, Massey, Ont., Mrs. Robt. Kippen, Omemee, N.D.; Mrs. H. Berry and Misses Kate and Jessie in Boston. All were present at the funeral with the exception of Mrs. Aubrey, Mrs. Kippen and Miss Kate.

    Taggart, C. F.
    April 22, 1904
    Died in California

      Mr. C.F. Taggart Dies Suddenly in the West. The people of Alexandria were shocked on Monday to learn of the sudden death that day at Dakland, Cal., of Mr. C.F. Taggart, late manager of the Export Co. here. His death at this particular time is fraught with peculiar sadness, as Mrs. Taggart and daughter were preparing to leave on Monday to join him in the golden state where they purposed residing. The late Mr. Taggart who was very highly esteemed during his residence in Alexandria, left last fall for California to accept a responsible position. He was enjoying good health, but some weeks ago he had an attack of pleurisy from which he was recovering. On Monday morning Mrs. Taggart received a card telling of his continued progress. Inside of two hours a message was received announcing his death. It is supposed that heart failure was the direct cause. This family has been sorely afflicted, as it is only a few months since Mrs. Taggart’s daughter died rather suddenly. Besides his widow, the deceased whose remains were interred in California, leaves a son and daughter, Harold in California and Grace resident with her mother. Mrs. Taggart and daughter who have the heartfelt sympathy of the people of Alexandria in their sore affliction, have gone to Ottawa, where they will reside until their plans for the future will be perfected.

    Tobin, D. P. J.
    August 1929
    Mr. D. P. J. Tobin of Lancaster, Widely Mourned

      One of the outstanding and prominent residents of the village of Lancaster, in the person of Mr. D. P. J. Tobin passed away, quite unexpectedly, at the Montreal General Hospital, on Thursday evening, August 8th, where he had been removed a few hours previously. During the past winter Mr. Tobin had not enjoyed good health but apparently had fully recovered, when suddenly stricken early last week. The deceased who was 60 years of age was born in Lancaster, a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Angus Tobin. He received his primary education in the local schools and later attended Ottawa University. For some time Mr. Tobin was employed with the late D. M. McPherson in the Allan Grove Cheese Combination but of late years he successfully conducted a coal and lumber business in Lancaster, establishing quite a large connection. Mr. Tobin was an unselfish and public spirited man, always taking a keen interest in the affairs of his native place and at all times doing everything in his power to promote its welfare. For several years he served on the Municipal board as well as on the school board. He was a devout member of St. Joseph’s Congregation, Lancaster and had attained a prominent position in the Knights of Columbus well earned by his qualities as a Catholic and as a citizen. His death will be a great loss to the Village of Lancaster where he was one of the prime movers in all local activities and the fact that his fellow citizens fully realized the loss they had sustained was manifested in no uncertain manner by the attendance at the funeral which took place on Sunday afternoon, over two hundred cars forming the cortege. Besides his widow, nee Catherine A. McDonald, he leaves one son and one daughter, Archibald and Helen Tobin. He also leaves one brother, Mr. F. J. Tobin of Alexandria, and two sisters, Mrs. A. McDonnell, Winnipeg and Mrs. H. Barnhart, Creed, Col., to all of whom warm sympathy is extended. The funeral took place on Sunday August 11th at 2 pm from his residence to St. Joseph’s Church and Cemetery. Rev. C. McRae, the pastor, officiated at the Church and was assisted at the cemetery by Rev. J. J. Macdonell, former Pastor of the Parish. Rev. E. J. Macdonald and Rev. J. H. Bougie were also in the Sanctuary. A Guard of Honor chosen by the members of the local fourth degree assembly of which the late Mr. Tobin was a valued member immediately preceded the hearse while the streets were lined by members of the Knights of Columbus from Alexandria and Cornwall Councils. The pall-bearers were Messrs. R. C. McDougal, C. P. Whyte, D. J. Parisien, W. Brady, H. E. Bougie and Geo. Stickler. It was impossible owing to the large number assembled for the funeral that everyone could find places in the church but a considerable portion of the crowd waited outside until the service was over and accompanied the remains to the Cemetery on the Montreal Road where interment took place. Seldom has a funeral in Lancaster brought together so many who sincerely mourned the deceased and it was a fitting testimonial to the sterling qualities of the late Mr. Tobin to witness such a gathering. Among the relatives from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Tobin and family, Alexandria, Mrs. J. Sullivan and family, Williamstown, and Miss A.
