About three weeks ago deceased left here for Manitowaning to hold Division Court. The drive was a long cold one, and he contracted a cold which a few days later developed into pneumonia. Mrs. McCallum was at once called for and was with him to the last. When first taken ill he was staying at the Hotel McGregor. Being unable to stand the unavoidable noise of a public house, W.J . Tucker had him removed to his residence on the 16th inst ., where Mrs. Tucker assisted Mrs. McCallum in caring for His Honor. It is greatly due to this fact that death did not occur sooner. It was feared from the first that he could not recover, as previous to this he had had a very strenuous season's work, travelling extensively along the North Shore revising the voters' lists. This left his system in a run-down condition and an easy prey to disease.
Judge McCallum was born in Scotland in the year 1859, coming to Canada with his parents when a lad twelve years of age. He was educated at Galt Collegiate Institute and Queen's University from which he graduated with the highest honors and a gold medal He was afterwards head master of the Paisley Public school, which position he held for a number of years. Following this he acted as an editorial writer on the staff of the Toronto Daily Globe. While in Paisley he was married to Mrs. Mitchell of Toronto, she being a widow.
After graduation as a barrister he practiced law in Paisley for some years and was known as one of the most eloquent and persuasive political orators of his time. When the Manitoulin was set apart in 1899 he was appoint ed it's first judge, and has since been a resident of Gore Bay, the district town. In Gore Bay, where he is best known, the loss is very keenly felt. Being placed in his position it is a very easy matter to make enemies, but his were indeed few . He was very highly respected by all classes. In all his decisions he was impartial, just and fearless, which has won for him a reputation that will live. During his residence here he has helped to a large extent to advance the moral standing of the citizens of Gore Bay, as well as the general appearance of the town. Shortly after moving to Gore Bay he erected a large brick dwelling which is easily the finest on the Island. Besides a widow, he leaves to mourn his demise, a family of two small children, the youngest being Harold, six years old, and Gladys, aged ten.
It was the intention to have the remains brought to Gore Bay at once but owing to the mail steamer Winona being disabled this will be impossibly and some delay will be caused by having to wait for the Midland which is expected here to night. At the time of writing the date of the funeral was not known, but it is expected to take place on Friday afternoon. The remains will be interred in the Gordon cemetery. Mrs. McCallum arrived in town late last evening, having driven from Manitowaning.
The flag at the court house is flying at half mast as an indication of the grief felt by the officials who knew him best.
Sympathy is a poor comforter but we assure the grief stricken wife and family that could this lessen their suffering the load would be lifted entirely from their hearts and borne by the score of friends deceased has made during the years he has lived in Gore Bay. Later-The funeral will be held Saturday at 2 p.m.
The Recorder, Thursday, November 26, 1908

The remains of the late Judge McCallum were removed from the Gordon Cemetery last Friday by Undertaker Hall, who accompanied the body to Paisley, Ontario where interment took place.

Mrs. McCannel Dead
On Friday, Oct. 2nd death claimed for its own Bess O., widow of the late Jas. McCannell, of the east Bluff, in her 71st year. Owing to her advanced years deceased had been ailing for a long time and the end was not unexpected. In her death the community in which she lived loses one of its oldest and most highly respected residents. What makes this doubly sad is the fact that just four weeks previous on the same day Miss Lizzie, daughter of the deceased, was called home, death being due to consumption. Six of a family still survive to mourn the loss of a loving mother and sister. They are as follows: Duncan, Malcolm and Alex., Mrs. Merrick, Mrs. P. McGrath, and Mrs. Alex. McDougall at present in the hospital in Collingwood. The funeral took place on Sunday and was largely attended. The Recorder joins with the host of friends in extending sincere sympathy to the bereaved ones.

As was his custom deceased was up before five o’clock and it is supposed had gone to the milk house to procure the gun with the intention of shooting coyotes. The weapon, a 12 guage (sic) shotgun, he had left loaded on a pile of sacks of feed, and it is thought that in pulling it down, the trigger became caught with the result that the unfortunate man received the charge just below the heart, death resulting instantly.
Coroner Treadgold was notified and decided to hold an inquest. The jurors empanelled were Messrs Jackson (foreman), Williams, Roberts, Therriault, Fjell and Kirkpatrick. After hearing the evidence of members of the family and one or two others, the verdict submitted was that “deceased came to his death by the accidental discharge of a shotgun either accidentally by his own handling or by the gun striking some material thing causing it to discharge when he was handling said shotgun”
The late John McColeman was in his 65th year and had resided in the district for the past twenty years. He was born near Collingwood, Ont., and before coming to Alberta lived for 20 years on the Manitoulin Island. He was twice married and is survived by a son and daughter by his first wife who still resides in Ontario, in addition to his widow and a family of four sons and eight daughters here in Alberta. They are Charles McColeman, Mrs. Glass, Mrs. Sims, Misses Minnie and Aggie, residing in Edmonton, Mrs. Mulford of Halkirk, Wm. on the old homestead and Johnny, Duncan, Clara, Allie and Laura, at home. Needless to say the family have the deep sympathy of the community in the sad affair.

Not now, but in the coming years,
It may be in the better land,
We’ll read the meaning of our tears,
And then sometime, we’ll understand.
We’ll know why clouds instead of sun
Were over many a cherished plan,
Why song has ceased when scarce begun;
‘Tis then, sometime, we’ll understand.
Why not we long for most of all,
Eludes so oft our eager hand;
Sometime with tearless eyes we’ll see;
Yes, then up there, we’ll understand.
Then trust in God through all the day;
Fear not, for He doth hold thy hand;
Though dark the way, still sin out praise;
Sometime, sometime, we’ll understand.

Mrs. McCracken was always of a cheerful disposition, was a good neighbour, a kind and affectionate wife and mother.
During her life she was an ardent reader and up until a few days before her passing she took a keen interest in all war work and current events. She made by hand a quilt and donated it to the Ladies War Auxillary, knit several pairs of socks and scarves for the soldiers.
She leaves to mourn her passing four daughters and two sons, namely: Mrs. Tom Campbell (Ellen), Mrs. Burt Witty (Ethel), Mrs. Neil McDougal (Tena), all of Gordon Township, Margaret and Bob at home and Tom of Sault Ste.

We loves her yes, we loved her.
The Golden Gates were opened.
But Jesus loves her more,
A gentle voice said, "Come".
And her has sweetly called her.
And with farewells all spoken
To yonder shining shore.
She calmly entered, "Home".

[EVELINE ALICE MCCRACKEN]

One of the worst accidents that has happened in this vicinity, occurred on Wednesday morning, August 10, 1927, when Mrs. Frank McCracken, of Silver Water, who was travelling on Government Road in a Ford touring car, had he misfortune to run the car off the road and in the attempt to right it again the car turned over twice, throwing the occupants out, killing outright, her eldest son Lawrence, who was about eight years old, besides injuring another younger son and doing serious injury to herself.
The unfortunate boy was apparently instantly killed, having sustained a scalp wound which penetrated his brain.
The funeral service was held from the home of Mrs. Thomas Campbell on Thursday afternoon. Interment took place at Gordon Cemetery, Rev. W.T. Swainson officiating.
One of the sad features of the terrible misfortune of Wednesday is that Mrs. McCracken was recently bereaved in the loss of her husband, the late Francis McCracken which occurred a few weeks ago and the double affliction has stirred the community to more than an ordinary degree of sympathy.

Sudden Death of Francis J. McCracken
It is with much sorrow that we record the death of Francis John McCracken of Silver Water. Mr. McCracken had been under the doctor's care for a considerable time, and was apparently well underway of recovery, and had resumed his occupation at Burnt Island. This was a mistake, as he was soon laid aside again. By engaging in work he had aggravated and intensified the trouble and although it was thought he might still recover, yet the end came suddenly.
Mr. McCracken was only thirty-seven years of age and leaves a wife and family of five little children who with the other relatives have the sympathy of the community.
The funeral took place on Sunday, May 22nd (sic) and was conducted by the Rev. Mr. Weeks of Little Current, formerly Anglican pastor at Silver Water. The sympathy was manifested by the large attendance, many being unable to enter the church. The remains were laid to rest in Gordon Cemetery.

Mrs. McCracken and family have the sympathy of all their friends in this sad bereavement. The following letter was received by his Mother.
Dear Mrs. McCracken
It is a month since I was called to perform the very sad duty of burying your son William Russell McCracken, 48th Highlanders of Canada, killed in action, December 9, 1943. Your son died instantly from an enemy shell, which fell near his trench, and today his body lies buried near where he died.
The tragedy took place during the height of the Moro battle, and Sergeant William Currie formerly of the Irish Regiment was with me as I stood over his grave and recited the burial service.
I prayed there for his soul, and that your hearts would be prepared for the tragic news and that God in his mercy would soon end this conflict. Your son's death brought sorrow to many hearts among us. He was a brave heart and he was faithful onto death. On behalf of the officers and men of the 48th Highlanders, may I send to you my sincere sympathy in the loss of so fine a son.
Sincerely, S.B. East Padre

[MARY JANE MCCULLIGH]

Silver Bay
We have this week to announce the death of Mrs. Thomas McCulligh, who passed peacefully away at Manitowaning on Feb. 27 at the home of Mrs. T. Clark. Deceased had been in poor health for nearly four years, so her death was not unexpected. Mr. and Mrs. McCulligh came to the Manitoulin Island thirty-two years ago, settling in the township of Sandfield on the lot adjoining Paul Wasajige, where they have resided every since. Nine years ago their house was entirely destroyed by fire, but by careful toiling they had accomplished a comfortable home, although Mrs. McCulligh did not live long to enjoy it. Besides a large circle of friends and relatives she leaves a husband, three sons, four daughters and six grandchildren to mourn her loss.

Jean McCullough
Jean McCullough, Alpine Artist
JEAN McCULLOUGH died last week. Jean leaves many friends whose lives she enriched during her almost 40 years in Alpine. A gentle humble person, her family, her painting, her garden and her friends were the big things in Jean’s life. A true artist she saw everything with the keen eye of the trained observer, noticing detail almost always missed by the lazy glances given to things by most of us. Going for a walk with her was an experience in learning to really see what one passed by like the smallest flowers, the faintest shadings of colors. Jean never drove a car but she was an excellent navigator for she could remember clearly every turn in the road and any landmark.
Margaret Jean McCullough nee Cromarty was born April 14, 1887 in Manitowaning, Ontario, Canada. Trained early in art and design, she worked in New York City as a hat designer for the famous Lilly Dache whose millinery creations were known all over the nation as well as abroad. Leaving this work for her more serious painting Jean came to Alpine to be with her sister Edith Cromarty who had come here earlier from New York City to care for their uncle William Simison. When he died in 1936, 1712 South Grade Road became their home until they died this year, five months apart. Edith on May 2nd, Jean on September 30th.
After her sister’s death Jean was with Aileen and Carl Farrow, her niece and nephew-in-law at the South Grade Road address. There were three Cromarty sisters, Aileen’s mother, Mrs. Lewis MacMillan of Windsor, Ontario, Canada, long deceased, being the eldest.
Jean and Edith leave four nieces and two nephews; Aileen, Mrs. Carl Farrow of Alpine; Bruce MacMillan, San Diego, Eric MacMillan, Sarnia, Ontario, Canada; Edith, Mrs. A. D. Mahoney, Harper Woods, Mich.; Ruth, Mrs. O. J. Gunn, Windsor, Canada; and Vera, Mrs. R. Laforet, Harper Woods, Mich.
Jean is buried (as is Edith) in Alpine Cemetery overlooking the hills she loved to paint. Her work was very good, however, she was never satisfied with it, always criticizing herself and striving for a dream of perfection. Her paintings have been shown in the Alpine Security Pacific Bank, the Art Chalet, the Library and in several East County art shows as well as all the Alpine Art shows as long as she was able to participate. Jean was a leading organizer and promoter of the first Alpine Art association, the Alpine Artists, and later became a member of the present Association. She was a member of the Alpine Woman’s Club serving as Art Chairman and for several terms as club Garden Chairman, for she was a real green thumb gardener with special talent for succulents. For some time she was an active member of the County Cactus and Succulent Society and one year she co-chairmanned their exhibit at the Del Mar County Fair, helping design and set up the display which won first place in its category.
Jean McCullough also loved animals especially cats and birds. Anyone wishing to honour her memory can do so by sending a donation in her name to the San Diego Humane Society.

Obituary
The Late James WcCutcheon (sic)
On Thursday, December 14 at 3 o’clock p.m. another of the Island Pioneers in the person of James McCutcheon passed away at the age of seventy-one after a prolonged illness.
Mr. McCutcheon was born in the township of Adjala in the County of Dufferin in the year 1851.
He came to the Manitoulin about fifty years ago, to engage in the timber business, with the R.A. Lyon & Co. at Michael’s Bay.
The lure of the land soon led him to engage in the farming industry on an extensive scale in the township of Sandfield.
The well known McCutcheon farm consister of 500 acres with splendid house and large modern barns situated on the trunk road between Sandfield Mills and Manitowaning is a credit to our Island. He was a natural lover of horses and live stock and more than eighteen years ago the writer on his first visit to this farm was shown by Mr. McCutcheon a splendid herd of pure bred Registered Shorthorn Cattle.
In his earlier life Mr. McCutcheon devoted considerable time to Municipal affairs and for a number of years served his municipality as reeve with marked efficiency.
In 1875 he married Anna Hutchison. This union was blest with twelve children of which seven sons and two daughters are living; Stewart of Duluth, Mich.; Minard of Spring Bay, Naaman (sic) of Winnipeg, John of Bruce Mines, Vesper Harold and Clifford at home and Mrs. O. Lifton and Mrs. E. Marchard both of Vancouver B.C.
He is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Thos. Allan of Edmonton and one brother William of Niagara District, they being the youngest two of a family of seven.
The funeral service which was held on Sunday at the family residence was conducted by the Rev. W.W. Anglin, a former pastor and friend of many years to the deceased and his family, who delivered a message of comfort to the bereaved and of tribute to the memory of the deceased.
A very large number of sympathetic friends and neighbors were in attendance. The pall bearers were Minard, Nanman, Vesper Harold and Clifford sons of the deceased and William Tilson.
Mr. Hugh Little was in charge as undertaker and funeral director.
Interment took place at Hilly Grove cemetery.
Mrs. McCutcheon and family have the sympathy of the entire community.
