AMOS ABBOTT - pg 218
From Ontario's Manitoulin Island, just northwest of Georgian Bay in Lake Huron, came the families who would found and settle the town of Hannah. Among these were the Hannah, Adams, Porter, McDonald, Beaton and Abbott families. Eventually all had descendants who settled in the Langdon area.
The Joseph and Ann Sherdon (Sheridan? - cp*) Abbott family included William, Jane, Lucy Ann, Mary Elizabeth, Amos, John, Margaret, Charlotte Ann and Sarah, who became Mrs. Hugh McDowall.
Amos was associated for a time with the McGruer Drug Store. Later he had his own drug store in the building known as the H. E. Close Drug Store. After about 20 years in Langdon he moved to Saskatchewan and later to Burdette, NY where he died in 1932 at age 65.
Amos Abbott is described as a feisty, red-haired, chubby little man who came off second in one of Langdon's famous foot-races. This one was run on Main Street with side bets along the way. His opponent was Baldy Ferguson, whose long legs gave him the advantage in the race, but it was Amos' determined efforts that gave the race its entertainment value.

CLAYTON FRANCIS ABOTOSSAWAY
Born July 17, 1937, died peacefully at home surrounded by family November 20, 2005. Clayton Abotossaway was born and raised in Sucker Creek (Aundeck Omni Kaning). Clayton was given the duty of caring for his grandfather Charles. Charles was a great influence on young Clayton considering Charles served his community as Chief for 55 years. Clayton attended the Shingwauk residential school like many native children at that time. In 1952, Clayton finished his studies at Shingwauk and attended Sault Technical School in Sault Ste. Marie. Clayton was an exceptionally gifted student academically and athletically. Clayton graduated from Sault Technical with honours and pursued further studies in the electrical field. Algoma Steel snapped up Clayton and offered him an apprenticeship. Clayton completed his apprenticeship and received his certification as an electrician. Clayton then took employment with Ontario Hydro and was assigned to maintaining electrical substations and powerhouses throughout Northern Ontario. Clayton felt isolated from his normal way of life. Clayton enjoyed his sporting activities like hunting and fishing, but most important to him was his family. Clayton left Ontario Hydro and moved his family from Sault Michigan to Sucker Creek in 1967. His first job back home was project manager in the construction of West Bay High School. Clayton later started his own electrical business (AB's Electric) and some of his contracts included the Wikwemikong Nursing Home, Espanola Mall, Little Current's front docks and the Lafarge Cement Plant on Whitefish River First Nation. In 1972, Clayton started his first of four terms as Chief of Sucker Creek. He immediately went to work to bring the reserve into the 20th century. As Chief, Clayton was instrumental in the construction of forty-two homes, a 4plex apartment building, community waterworks system comprising of a pump house with reservoir, new and upgraded subdivision roads, a ball field and also a fully serviced lakefront park. He was one of the original six chiefs that established United Chiefs and Councils of Manitoulin. His political relationships helped in a number of funded programs and projects including the CMHC housing program. Clayton also convinced Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development that the reserve needed a more effective administration band office and community centre. On June 27, 1978, the newly developed office was opened. Premier Davis honoured Clayton in 1974 by having a northern Ontario township named after him. The "Abotossaway Township" is located north of Wawa. The Davis government named the township after him as a symbol of his effective work in northern development. Clayton was known for his athletic abilities, especially basketball where he was scouted by professional teams in Michigan. Locally, he was best known for his prowess in baseball, hockey, broomball, curling and golf. Other affiliations included the International Brotherhood of the Electrical Workers, a founding member of the Little NHL, a long standing Legion member and a past President of the Little Current Lions Club. Clayton's biggest accomplishment stems not from what he did, but what his family and friends remember him by, which goes beyond what any words can describe. Son of Frank Abotossaway and Ruby (nee Owl). Predeceased by his sisters Rita and Greta and brother of Earl, Stewart, Nolan, Lorne, Corella, Christine and Diana.
Clayton married Iris Esquimaux of Whitefish Falls on September 28, 1956 and raised nine children: Lori, Terry, Patty, Cheryl, Melanie, Max, Kelly, Treena and granddaughter Holly. One son Aron died tragically at age 4 in 1973. Visitation was Tuesday, 7 - 9.

The clothes are black rough serge, apparently new; a soft linen shirt, white, with small blue stripe; black bow tie with small white dot. The band of the shirt is marker J.L R; collar, Stanley make, size 15 ½, marked J.D.4; Oxford shoes, No. 7; new rubbers; good underclothing and socks; wore a gold-filled watch case by the American Watch Case Co., open face, screw back and bezel, No. 298037, movement Elgin, stem wind, No. 2076767; cash $1.30; large spring-back dirk knife, 4 ½ inch blade; small pocket dictionary with aluminum comb inside.
Silverwater’s worst fears have been realized, we are sorry to say. When word reached us on Thursday last that the steamer Jones had foundered in Lake Huron the week previous, the father and brothers of Ed. Addison, who had been visiting in eastern Ontario since October, became alarmed as to whether Ed. had gone down on the ill-fated vessel, as it was known he might return via Providence Bay. Word was immediately sent to Capt. Graham at Owen Sound, inquiring if he knew whether our young friend had sailed on the Jones. On Sunday a message was received that not only had Ed. Addison gone on board the wrecked vessel, but that he was accompanied by his cousin, A.E. Addison of Avon, who was coming here to spend the winter. And to make the news all the more distressing, the message contained the information that T.E. Kennedy was also aboard. Although the initials are not the same it is feared that the last named gentleman is Thos. A. Kennedy, who moved from here to Gore Bay a couple of years ago, and thence to Arthur last September. How he came to be on the Jones is a mystery, unless he was coming back to work in one of the camps for the winter. In the untimely death of Edgar Addison this section loses one of the most promising of her young men. He was 33 years of age and had been a resident of the Island for a quarter of a century, coming here with his father from Oxford county in 1880. In business matters his reputation was beyond reproach, and he was highly respected by everyone. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church, in politics a Liberal, and unmarried. His untimely demise at the age of thirty-three years is keenly felt here, and to his aged father, his sister and brothers the deepest sympathy of all is extended. This is the second member of the family to go down to a watery grave, the oldest son, William, being drowned off Duck Islands in 1881.

Obituary
Mr. G. G. Addison
The early pioneers of Manitoulin have mostly crossed to the Great beyond, at least those who had attained to manhood or womanhood before coming to the Island.
One of the last to go was the venerable George Gibson Addison of Silver water, who at an age just lacking about a month of eight-nine years, received the call on June 25, 1921.
Mr. Addison was born on July 29th, 1832, in Levens, Westmoreland, Eng. Mr. Addison was thus raised in the Lake District of England and drank in the characteristics which its scenes inspired. He had seen those beautiful lakes of which historians wrote and poets sang. Songs of Wordsworth, Soutbey and Colridge were more or less familiar to him.
In speaking to him of that wonderful country the writer said that it was very hilly, “Yes” he said, “that is what gives it its beauty.” He had frequently seen Queen Victoria and such British leaders as Lord Salisbury and others. He had in his possession a curious medal given to his father bearing the date of July 4, 1818, with Lord Brougham’s name and head stamped on one side, and on the reverse side the words, To the patriotic incorruptible and unbought freeholders of the county of Westmoreland.
He attended a college for a time in London and for five and one half years taught school in the Isle of Man and knew something of the native language of the people of that Isle.
In November, 1867 he was married to Elizabeth Herd of Kenton, Eng., and came to Canada in 1872 first locating near Norwich, Ont., and removed to Manitoulin in 1881 locating at Silver Water. He was an active worker in the Anglican church there and was superintendent of the Sunday School and Bible Class teacher for a considerable number of years. His loyalty to the means of grace and fidelity to his church is shown by the fact that at the age of sixty-nine he attended Sunday School fifty-three Sundays in the year. He also taught a singing school. He received presents with an address from his singing class.
Mrs. Addison died in 1881, since which time he has made his home with his son, Mr. Joseph Addison of Silver Water. Mr. Addison was among the eldest of his father’s family and is survived by five brothers. Of his own family four boys and one girl survive, namely: Joseph of Silver Water, Barney of Burpee, Charlie of Vanessa, Ont., George of Wayne, Alta., and Mrs. Walter Greig of Niagara, N.Y.
Mr. Addison was a well informed man who possessed a wonderful memory. He had not been able to see to read for about four years. Notwithstanding this handicap he tried to keep a grasp of the general news of the world, and as to the general historic recollections of his early life he had the most vivid recollections.
The funeral service was conducted by Mr. E. weeks who teaches the Anglican school at Sheshegwaning and conducts the Sunday services there and at Silver Water.
The distance to the cemetery being short, twelve pall bearers followed by many friends took turns in carrying the remains to their last resting place.
The friends have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.

Sad Bereavement
The death of Miss Gertie Addison, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Barney Addison of Evansville, which occurred on April 20th, after a short illness, cast the community in which she lived into deep gloom.
Miss Addison was in her fifteenth year and was a general favorite with all who knew her.
The cause of her death resulted from the rupture of an abscess, which had formed in her throat death coming quite unexpectedly. The parents have the sympathy of the whole neighborhood in their sad hour of bereavement.

She was born in Gordon Township, daughter of William and Ida (Wood) Linley. Ina was predeceased by brothers William and Herbert and sisters Edith (Campbell, Wilson) and May (Morden). Ina enjoyed quilting, flowers and gardening. Her greatest love other than the cattle was her family and all the gatherings they enjoyed over the years.
Ina married Joe Wilson on August 9, 1933 and they lived their married life on the farm in Gordon, where Ken and Beth Gibbs now reside. Joe died on April 27, 1981 and on May 4, 1985 Ina married Clarence Addison. Clarence died on March 18, 1995. Ina's daughter, and only child, Eldean Gibbs (Mrs. Jack), died on March 29, 1995. Ina's faith in God got her through this sad time but she spent many lonely days. Clarence and Ina lived in Evansville where his daughter Sheila and her husband Frank Harley now spend their holidays. They then moved to Mill Site Apartments and in October 2002, Ina moved to Manitoulin Lodge. Ina leaves to mourn her son-in-law, Jack Gibbs (friend June), grandson Ken Gibbs (wife Beth) and her beloved great-grandchildren, Loren, John, and Krysten Gibbs, and her stepchildren, Chester Addison (wife Pat deceased), Stan and Joan Addison, Sheila and Frank Harley and step-grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

DOROTHY "DOT" MARY AELICK (NEE CHENIER)
In loving memory of Dorothy "Dot" Mary Aelick (nee Chenier), 85 years who passed away Friday morning, November 4th, 2005 at Pioneer Manor, Sudbury.
Born in Arnprior, Ontario on December 26th, 1919. Dorothy was the wife of the late Charles Aelick, predeceased October 30, 1984, mother of Ronald (wife Elli) and dear grandmother of David, Mary-Ellen and Peter. Parents Horace and Margaret Chenier, predeceased. She has one sister surviving her, Rita Aubrey, while siblings Irene McNeil, Albert, Leo and Gerald Chenier have all predeceased her. Dorothy (known as 'Dot' to family and friends) was a very caring, loving and gentle person. She always took the time to listen and conversation around the dinner table could go on for hours. Most of her married life was spent living in Gatchell, with frequent weekend jaunts to the Manitoulin Island. Dorothy met life's difficulties with stoic
determination. She cared for Charlie through decades of heart disease; Ron with his twice broken leg and herself survived two bouts of cancer. Her favourite saying was "I have no regrets" and that is her greatest legacy to her family. She was fulfilled as a wife, mother and grandmother and was gracious the entire way. We, her family, wish to extend our gratitude to some of the people who held a special place in Dot's heart. To Alf and Leila Laframboise who always found time to help Dot in whatever way they could; the Aelick extended family who always included her in their plans; to Richard Chenier for assuring that he and his father, Ab, made regular visits, and to you who have sent your prayers and good wishes, we say thank you. We will dearly miss her humour and take solace in the fact that Dot's life was lived in full with 'no regrets.' Rested at Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home, 233 Larch St., Sudbury. Funeral Mass was in Christ the King Church, 30 Beech St. Sudbury, Monday, November 7th, 2005 at 10 am. Interment in the Park Lawn Cemetery. Prayers 3 pm Sunday.

He would often be seen cruising around on his “caddy” (red scooter) on Bayfield Street doing his errands, shopping and making friends wherever he went. A special thanks to all the store clerks who treated him so well. I hope he brightened up your day as you most certainly did his. He was very independent, a very positive and loving person and a true gentleman. He was much loved and will be sorely missed. At Edward's request a private cremation and interment will take place at Highland Memory Gardens in Toronto. . “He was loved and respected by all who knew him.”

Much sympathy is felt for Mr. and Mrs. B. Allen and family in their recent bereavement. Their eldest son, Wesley, was ailing for some time and a few weeks ago was sent to Toronto with the hope that by undergoing an operation he would be restored to health. It was not to be so. Upon an examination the doctors decided that they could do nothing to save his life as the disease was of a tubercular character. His remains were brought home on Friday last and interment took place on Saturday. The sympathy of the community was manifested by large numbers who attended the funeral which was held in the church here.

He was an active member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 177 always volunteering and giving donations to support their events. It was through the Legion that he took up curling, going out at least three times a week. He enjoyed this sport and was very proud when the team won the provincial curling championship in 2006, bringing the trophy back to Little Current.
