Death in Burpee
The community of Burpee has been saddened by the death of one of its earliest settlers in the person of Mrs. John Eaton. Deceased had been in poor health for some time past but had always persisted in attending to her household duties. Finally her physical condition became alarming and she was persuaded to go to Gore Bay and place herself under medical treatment. But her wornout frame made no response to physician’s skill or nurse’s care and in less than a week, on July 13th, she passed quietly away, her last words expressing her simple trust in her Saviour’s love. The funeral took place on Monday, July 16th, to the Gordon cemetery. On Sunday, July 22nd, a memorial service was conducted by Rev. R. Wiseman in the Burpee Church. The large audience gave evidence of deep respect for the departed friend and the mourning relatives. She leaves in Burpee an only son, Henry Hall, and a brother John Martin, to mourn her loss.

Obituary
Miss Margaret A. Edmonds
Miss Margaret A. Edmonds, popularly known as “Auntie” passed to her reward on the morning of March 15th, 1924.
She was born in the town of Mitchell in the Autumn of 1857. About the year 1860 her father, the late Wm. Edmonds, removed to a farm near Norwich, Ont., where she remained until her father’s death, when she and her mother removed into the town of Norwich. There she remained until her mother’s death, twenty-six years ago. Since that time she has resided with her brother, Mr. John Edmonds, of Silver Water, Ont. At about the age of twelve years, Miss Edmonds was attacked with rheumatism, the trouble first affecting her fingers. Medical treatment availed nothing to check the progress of the affliction, which gradually disorted (sic) her limbs, until she was completely deprived of the use of them. After coming to Manitoulin twenty-six years ago, she could walk a little with much effort for two years. For ten years she was helped from her bed to a chair since which time she has been almost constantly confined to her bed. Since coming to the Island she had only at times suffered extreme pain but scarcely any person can form any dies (sic) of the extreme agony of suffering which she endured previous to that, for hers was a case almost without a parallel. When no longer able to walk, her desire was to attend church. Lifted into the light wagon or sleigh, she was taken to church, regularly, and placed in her wheeled chair in the aisle near to the pulpit. She must, surely, have been a source of inspiration to the various ministers who officiated; and what a pattern of fidelity she was to the many to whom God has granted the full use of their limbs. She was also Treasurer of the Ladies Aid until the loss of her eyesight prevented her from holding the position any longer. Miss Edmonds remained until death a member of the Anglican Church, although since coming to Manitoulin she attended the Presbyterian church of which body her brother has long been an elder.
She had been out of bed for a short time, and said, “Put me back to bed.” This was done and in a few moments she had passed away peacefully to her rest.
A large congregation assembled at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church to pay their last tribute of respect to her memory, the service being conducted by Rev. Wm. Munro who spoke from the words “Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord.”
Hers was a long and severe affliction, during which she was tenderly cared for and which was intensified toward the last by total blindness all of which was borne with wonderful patience and Christian resignation.
Out of a family of eight, three brothers and one sister survive. These are Wm. B. Edmonds of Norwhich, Ont. David F. of Burford, Ont., John of Silver Water Ont, and Mrs. J.E. Haight of Killarney, Man.
Messrs. Wm. and George Priddle of Silver Water are nephews, being sons of a deceased sister, Mrs. Wm. Priddle, Sr.
The pallbearers were Messrs. D. McGibbon, J. Williams, Jr., Chas. Hutton, Chas. Kemp, J. Kemp and L. Johnson.
The remains were laid to rest in the Silver Lake cemetery, overlooking the waters of that name.

ROBERT ANDREW EDNIE
Shocking Tragedy Occurs in Billings Township One of the most shocking tragedies of the Township of Billings occurred on Wednesday afternoon, August 15th when the accidental discharge of a .22 rifle took the life of Robert Andrew Ednie, one of the townships most highly respected citizens.
The deceased who was in his 43rd year and unmarried, resided with his mother and brother Arthur, on a farm near Mindemoya Lake, where he was actively engaged in farming up until a short time ago, when following an operation he was obliged to take things easy. On the day of the accident both he and his brother had been having a little target practice after dinner. About two o'clock Arthur left to cut grain about a half a mile from home and on leaving requested his brother to bring him up some oil and binder twine later in the afternoon.
As he failed to show up Arthur returned home for the required materials and found his brother lying beside the car, dead, with the muzzle of the rifle underneath his right hand and a bullet wound in his right temple. As the deceased had found the time rather heavy on his hands while convalescing he was in the habit of carrying the rifle wherever he went around the farm, shooting sparrows and crows for amusement. From the position in which he was found and his preparedness to carry out his brothers wishes, the oil and twine being already to be placed in the car, it is presumed that while loading the rifle it accidentally discharged causing instant death as the bullet struck a most vital spot.
The doctor and coroner were immediately summoned, and Dr. J.A. Baker and W.F. McRae, acting as coroners, in the absence of Magistrate Major, viewed the remains and returned a verdict of accidental death.
The late Mr. Ednie was born at Calument, Mich., on June 17th, 1892, and came to the Island with his mother and brothers and sisters in 1902, settling at Long Bay, later moving to their present farm on Lake Mindemoya.
He leaves to mourn his loss, his mother, Mrs. A. Kerr and the following brothers and sister, Miss Jennie Kerr of Chicago, Arthur at home and Alex. of Kagawong. The funeral took place from his late residence, on Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. and was very largely attended by friends and neighbours from the surrounding community, who gathered to pay their last respects to one they held in high esteem. The funeral service was conducteb by the Rev. F. Wagg and Mr. Wilson Sterling. The pallbearers were Messrs. Jas. Robertson, Earl McAnsh, R. Cranston, Andrew Robertson, Fred Cranston and Norman Bowser. Interment was made in Mindemoya Cemetery.

MILAN DETLEF EGRMAJER
July 13, 1952 - December 2, 2010
The Mariners Twenty Third Psalm
The Lord is my pilot and I shall not drift
He lighteth me across the darkest waters
He steereth me in deep channels
He keepeth my log
He guideth me by the star of holiness for his namesake
Yea though I sail mid the thunders and tempests of life I will dread no danger,
For thou art near me
Thou preparest a harbour before me, in the homeland of Eternity
Thou anointest the waves with oil my vessel rideth calmly
Surely sunlight and starlight shall favour me on the voyage I take
And I will rest in the port of my God forever.

Obituary
Mr. W. Elliott
On Sunday, August 21, there passed away at the home of his sister, Mrs. W. Woods, Sault Ste. Marie, a well known and respected citizen of the Manitoulin Island in the person of Mr. W. Elliot. Born at Mindemoya, 43 years ago, Mr. Elliot lived all his life on the old homestead, where he first saw the light of day. The child of pioneer parents, he inherited a spirit of sturdy self-reliance which the early days of toil and hardships developed. He was a splendid type of citizen and a staunch friend and a good neighbor who possessed in a marked degree the confidence of the community in which he lived and was elected to the council board of the township of Carnarvon at the last municipal elections.
Mr. Elliott’s health began to fail over a year ago and despite specialist treatment his malady grew steadily worse. At the time of his death he was on his way to the Mayo Bros. hospital in Rochester where he hoped an operation might bring him relief, but was unable to proceed further than the Soo on his journey.
Twelve years ago Mr. Elliott was married to May Gordon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Gordon. Four children were born to them, the eldest of which is ten and the youngest four years of age. His wife was hurriedly summoned by telegram and she reached his side just a few hours before his death.
Besides his wife and children, Mr. Elliott leaves five sisters to mourn his early demise. Miss Jessie of Hamilton, Mrs. W. Woods and Mrs. Ed Charters of Sault Ste Marie, Mrs. Goodbrand of Dundas and Mrs. Jno. Buck of Spring Bay.
The funeral service was held in Mindemoya union Church n Wednesday, August 24. Rev. Wm. Munro was in charge and was assisted by Rev. J. C. Cochrane of Sudbury, a school mate of the late Mr. Elliott, Rev. W. Bradford of Mindemoya.
The wealth of floral tributes and the large procession which followed the body to its last resting place in Mindemoya cemetery bore testimony to the esteem in which the deceased was held by his fellow citizens. The sympathy of the community is extended to the wife and children and the sisters in their great loss.

Although his life was short it was faithful and sweet to the last. He possessed great faith in his Saviour and greeted his friends with smiles the last hour of his life.
We join in conveying to his parents, relatives and friends our most sincere sympathy.
