Nurse McLaren Killed By Train
Miss Ruth McLaren, R.N. P.H.N., newly appointed nurse at Chicago, Ill, was instantly killed on Monday night at 6:0 9 o'clock, Nov. 20th, when she was struck by a westbound train of the C.B. & Q. at Berwyn. Miss McLaren was attempting to cross the tracks to catch a westbound train and a train that did not stop at Berwyn was coming west on the middle track. She was unfamiliar with the station and evidently did not know of the "fence" and was caught between the fence and the engine pilot.
With Miss McLaren, was a friend, Miss Joan Allan of Chicago who was accompanying her friend to a dinner party, given in her honor, by Mrs. Smith of Lyons, Ill., when the unfortunate accident occurred.
An inquest was held at Berwyn on Tuesday and was postponed until Friday, when her brother, Mr. Edward McLaren of Port Arthur, Ontario was able to be present. A verdict was returned of the death of Miss McLaren being accidental and further recommended that the railway company be compelled to paint the fence in more conspicuous colors, so that similar accidents might be avoided in future.
Miss McLaren was born at Kagawong, Ont., on September 17th, 1895 later moving to Gore Bay with her parents where she received her public school education.
When about 17 years of age she accompanied her family to Moose Jaw where she entered the collegiate of that place and upon the parents return to Gore Bay she entered the Regina General Hospital and graduated with the class of 1919 after completing a three year course of training. Shortly after her graduation she went to Louisville, Kentucky, for a post graduate course. She proved herself a clever nurse and while in Louisville was awarded three medals and scholarships. Later she accepted a position with the Public Health Board of Chicago.
Miss McLaren had only just commenced her duties in the city where she was acting the capacity of a Community Nurse, devoting her time to caring for the sick and in a general way looking after the welfare of all classes. Her future prospects were very brilliant and her enterprising and lovable nature were being felt by all those with whom she had come in contact and her sad and untimely end is a source of the deepest regret, not only to her immediate relatives, but to all of her friends in this town and other places in which she lived.
The funeral service was held at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alexander McLaren, Gordon, on Sunday, Nov. 26, at 2:30 p.m. Rev. J. M. Walker conducted the service and interment took place in Gordon cemetery. The pall bearers were four brothers of the deceased and Messrs. Oscar Bennett and Angus Greenfield.
Several beautiful floral tributes contributed by friends were in evidence a manifestation of the high esteem in which Miss McLaren was held.
She is survived by her parents, four brothers and two sisters, viz.- Harvey of Winnipeg, Hugh and William of Port Arthur, Norman of Gore Bay, Alice of Winnipeg and Florence of Regina, Sask., all of whom were home for the funeral.

Mr. John McLaughlin is Dead
Manitoulin School Inspector Passed Away Suddenly at London on Friday
When a telegram arrived on Saturday morning announcing the death of Mr. John McLaughlin, School Inspector for the Manitoulin, it was difficult to realize that a prominent figure in the town had gone. It was only a few days ago that he left here for London to have an operation performed. The operation was apparently successful but a hemorrhage of the brain carried him off suddenly.
The deceased was appointed to the Manitoulin Inspectorate in 1905 and has resided in Gore Bay ever since. There were few residents of the Manitoulin who were better known than the late Inspector. His duties took him into every corner of the District as well as a large part of the North Shore. Before coming to the Manitoulin he was well known in Toronto, London, Ottawa and other parts of the Province. He was of a particularly charitable disposition, in cases where assistance was needed he was always one of the first to come to the rescue of the deserving needy.
He leaves his bereaved widow and one son to mourn his sudden death, both of whom left for London on the receipt of the telegram.

H. L. McLean Commits Suicide
Hector L. McLean, a well known character, committed suicide on Tuesday evening at 7:15 by drinking carbolic acid. The tragedy occurred at Sims’ boat house, where some children playing nearby noticed what they thought was a drunk man rolling on the dock. They attracted the attention of some men in a boat who at once rowed over.
When they arrived they found the man breathing his last, and noticed a strong odor of carbolic acid. They notified Doctors McCaig and McRae, but life was extinct when they arrived. The body was taken to Simpson’s morgue, and it had been decided that an inquest was unnecessary. The deceased had been drinking heavily of late, and this is thought to have led to the rash act.—Steelton News.
McLean at one time owned the Queen’s Hotel in Gore Bay, and was well know here.

Little Current
A most regrettable accident occurred at the Little Current Company’s mill by which John McLean, aged 18, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jas. McLean of this place, lost his life. On Thursday morning very shortly after the mill started one of the belts came off and was whirling around the shaft when the young man attempted to kick it. His foot caught in the belt and he was immediately entwined around the shaft. The mill was stopped as soon as possible but not before the victim was done to death.

Obituary
Mrs. Allan McLean
One of the oldest and best known residents of the vicinity passed away last week in the person of Mrs. Allan McLean of Allan Township. Mrs. McLean had been suffering from ill health for some months, and two weeks before her death had gone to Mayo Bros. Hospital, Rochester, Minn., where she underwent a serious operation. She died five days later on August 5.
Mrs. McLean, whose maiden name was Mary Jane Steele, was born in the county of Annagh (sic) Ireland, in 1855, and came to Canada at the age of 17 to live with her uncle near Meaford, Ontario. In 1879 she married William Beange of Allan Twp., Manitoulin Is., who settled here forty-three years ago. In 1889 her husband died leaving her a widow with seven small children. Afterwards she married Allan McLean and continued to live on the old homestead where she resided until her death.
Mrs. McLean was widely known and much beloved by all who knew her. She was a good neighbour to a wide community and every case of sickness or need appealed to her sympathy and generosity. Her home had always an open door, and for many years was a gathering place for friends and neighbours from both town and country. She was a faithful member of the Presbyterian church, and deeply devoted to every cause of good. Her Christian life was a strength and inspiration to the community in which she spent the greater part of her life.
She leaves besides her husband nine children to mourn her loss: Mrs. (Rev.) N.A. MacEachern of Toronto, William of Allan Twp., Mrs. Duncan Orr of Elm Creek, Man., Margaret at home, James of Vancouver, Robert of Gore Bay, Mrs. R. Kindree of Winnipeg and Charles and Sadie at home.

McLEAN - At Oakville, on the 26th Jan., at the age of 27, Robt. McLean, brother of Mrs. R. English, Manitowaning.
Manitoulin Expositor, February 6, 1886

Mr. Chas. McLean
It is with deepest regret we announce the death of Mr. William Arthur Charles McLean of Ice Lake.
For several months past Mr. McLean had not been feeling well but nothing of a serious nature was anticipated. However, in January he consulted Dr. Davis who stated that his condition was serious and advised an operation. Early in February he went to Toronto and entered the Private Pavilion of the general Hospital, where an operation was performed by a most skilful surgeon: but while he rallied from the operation no hope was held out for his recovery.
On Friday morning March 24th, he passed into his rest. Mr. Charles McLean was a man of quiet manner and kindly temperament, a very likeable young man and made for himself a host of friends in this community. Wherever he was known he was kindly spoken of and held in high esteem. Loving life as he found it he lived, and then passed on into that larger life where the perfect note is sounding and the joys strains of heavenly music break in upon the ear.
The mystery that envelopes us is now made plain to him. Those who knew him best carry in their heart a fond memory. And memories weave more than myths. There is more music in the heart strings of the past than in all the instruments imagination ever conceived. This is life’s compensation for our losses.
Mr. McLean was born on his father’s farm in Allan township on the seventh day of September 1892 and here he resided until his passing.
Those who mourn are his father, Mr. Allan McLean, three brothers, William and Robert at home and James, Vancouver, B.C.; fie sisters, Mrs. (Reverend) N.A. McEachern, Toronto, Mrs. Rhoda Kindree, Winnipeg; Mrs. D. Orr, Elm Creek; and the Misses Margaret and Sadie at home.
A short service was held in the undertaker’s parlour in Toronto, conducted by the Reverend Alexander McGillivray, D.D., and the Reverend J. B. Paulin, Minister of Rosedale Presbyterian Church.
On the arrival of the body at Gore Bay, it was conveyed to the father’s home where on Monday after a short service conducted by the Rev. Alex R. Gibson it was borne to its last resting place.
The pall bearers were boy friends of the deceased; Ernie Gilroy, James Burt, Abe Wilson, Frank Palmer, William Nelson and Henry Lee.

[MARY EDITH MCLENNON]

Providence Bay
Diptheria, as a result of LaGrippe recently broke out in the family of Mr. McLennon, formerly a teacher here. A little daughter of four years succumbed to the malady, another member of the family was seriously affected but has recovered. In the case of others the disease has been checked by the injection of anti-toxin.
Mr. and Mrs. McLennon have the sympathy of the community in their sad affliction which was all the more trying for Mrs. McLennon as she was alone when the little daughter died, Mr. McLenon being absent teaching school.

[JANE MCMILLAN]

Fernlee
It is with regret that we announce the death of Mrs. A. McMillan, who died at her home here on May 31st at the early age of 39 years. Her illness lasted about six months. In March she went to Toronto to receive medical treatment, and there learned that she had cancer of the throat, and steadily she failed under the grip of the deadly monster. Mrs. McMillan came to the Manitoulin with her parents 28 years ago, and six years later married Mr. Andrew McMillan, of Fernlee. She had charge of Fernlee post office and telephone ever since they were established, and being of a genial character made many friends. She was a member of St. Andrews Presbytererian Church, and for several years president of the Ladies Aid Society. She was a general favorite with all who knew her, and we feel that a gap has been opened up by her removal from among us that will perhaps never again be filled. The remains were interred in Silverwater cemetery on June 1st. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. A. Gillis. Mrs. McMillan is survived by her husband, who has the sympathy of a host of friends in his sad hour.

[ANNA CASSIE MCMURRAY]

Mrs. John J. McMurray
One of the saddest events of the season occurred in the death of Mrs. McMurray who passed out of this life into the Great Beyond on Wednesday, March 14th.
Although suffering from a stroke which she received in April 1922 her death was completely unexpected until within a few days of her decease when she was stricken with the Flue. Her constitution already weakened by her long illness was not equal to the strain and pneumonia developed. She gradually sank until she passed away at one o’clock Wednesday afternoon. During all her illness she never murmured nor complained but welcomed everyone with a smile.
Mrs. McMurray whose maiden name was Anna ?????? in the Township of Huron, South Bruce on December 8th, 1876. Her early life was spent at Purple Grove and Ripley, near the farm on which she was born. When quite a young woman she moved to Chicago where she married the late Willard Miley in 1902 and moved with him to Munsie, Indiana where he died in April of 1907. She returned to Chicago and later to Canada, where she became acquainted with John J. McMurray. Returning to Chicago in Jun 1911 where she married Mr. McMurray on October 11th of that year, and came with him to his farm at Tehkummah where she lived until her death. In religion she was a Presbyterian.
Her quiet unobstursive (sic) manner, her sympathetic ways and kindness of heart made her a host of friends wherever she was known. Only the severity of the weather and amount of sickness throughout the country prevented a much larger funeral
Her remains were laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery at Hilly Grove on March 17th, Rev. Sylvester conducting the last sad rites.
Beside her husband and step-son, Willie D., she leaves to mourn her loss her mother, seven sisters and three brothers. Her mother, Mrs. Mary Ferguson of Ripley, Ont, is 84 years of age and one of the pioneers of Huron Township, coming there from Greenock, Scotland nearly seventy years ago. Her sisters are Mrs. A.K. McLay and Mrs. Geo. Emmerton of Ripley, Ont., Mrs. Wells of Petosky, Mich., Mrs. W. A. Hines of Glendale, California; Mrs. Williams and Miss Elisabeth and Miss T. Ferguson of Chicago. Her brothers are John of Flint, Mich; Peter of Steel, Ohio, and Thomas of Ontario, California.
The Recorder, Gore Bay, Thursday, April 5, 1922
*Unfortunately there is a crease through the line where Mrs. McMurray’s maiden name is given, as long as her mother has not remarried I can only presume it to be Ferguson,

Obituary
One of the pioneer settlers of The Slash passed away on Saturday, Oct. 17th, in the person of Mrs. Martha McMurray, relict of the late Wm. A. McMurray, who predeceased her 14 years.
Mrs. McMurray was born in Toronto on July 14th, 1841. Her grandfather Joseph Mulligan, came from Ireland and settled in Toronto when that now flourishing city consisted of but a dozen log houses. The deceased, whose maiden name was Martha Mulligan, could remember Toronto when the greater part of what now is the business centre was a wilderness of scrub pine and swamp.
For some time after leaving Toronto Miss Milligan kept a millinery shop at Bobcaygen, where she married the late Wm. A. McMurray, and moved to Bradford, Ont., where they lived for 13 years.
Coming to the Manitoulin in 1877, they lived first at Michaels Bay and Lonely Bay, moving into their farm in The Slash in 1899, where, except for a brief residence at Little Current, she had resided till her death.
Being a woman of a quiet and retiring nature, she was slow to make friends; but being generous, kind, and thoughtful of others, any friendships she formed were life-long. Her whole life was devoted to the service of her God and the welfare of her family, and her quiet life of patient self-sacrifice has left a memory behind her more enduring that a monument of gold.
The high esteem in which she was held was well shown by the large numbers of neighbours who called during her last illness, and the large concourse of people who followed her remains to their last resting place at Hilly Grove Cemetery.
She leaves behind her four children to mourn her loss-Thomas McMurray and John J. McMurray (with whom she resided since her husband’s death in 1900), both of The Slash, Mrs. A. Lehman, of The Slash, and Mrs. H. McMullen of Manitowaning.

Sad Fatality
Mr. Alex. McNevin Meets his Death by Falling Thirteen Feet off Mr. J.T. Burn’s Mill
A gloom was cast over Manitowaning Monday morning when the sad news spread that Mr. Alexander McNevin of Tehkummah, who was working on Mr. J.T. Burn’s new mill, had fallen thirteen feet to the ground and was lying insensible. Mr. McNevin was working on a scaffold putting on some corner boards and in an effort to catch a slipping board overbalanced and fell to the ground. He went down head first and struck on the side of his head, causing a rupture of some blood vessel the blood running out of his ear. He was taken to the Queen’s Hotel unconscious and Dr. J.W. McIntosh immediately summoned. Though the Doctor did all he could, he could not bring him back to consciousness. On Tuesday Dr. McDonald of Little Current was sent for and a consultation was held. They did everything in their power but to no avail. Mr. McNevin lay unsconsious (sic) until nearly six o’clock Wednesday night when he expired not having known what happened him nor being able to say one word to his sorrowing wife.
Mr. McNevin was a gentleman widely known throughout the district and was highly respected by everybody. He was a kind husband and an affectionate father. His bereaved wife and six little children the eldest of which is twelve years, have the sincerest sympathy in their hour of sorrow.
His funeral took place Thursday to Hilly Grove Cemetary (sic) and was very largely attended, Rev. Mr. Rennie conducting the last sad rites.-Expositor

Body Found
On Friday of last week a report reached here that a body of a young man in a nude state had been found on the shores of John’s Island. It was at once surmised that it was that of young Manson McPherson who had disappeared from that Island about a month ago, and who was supposed to be wandering on the Island in a demented condition. On Sunday his father, Mr. Jacob McPherson, of Kagawong, went over and identified the body to be that of his boy, and the body was brought over on the Str. Winona and taken to Kagawong for interment. This brings to light a very sad case. Young McPherson was working around Cutler and Johns Island during the summer and had come to John’s Island and worked a couple of days and complained of not feeling very well and knocked off work. This was the last that was seen of him until two or three days afterwards he was noticed by a woman loitering around in a sort of listless manner, and on being approached ran into the woods. Searching parties were formed but no trace of him could be found, and it was feared that he would starve to death. The finding of the body by an Indian woman on Friday although proving that he came to an untimely end still did not solve the real cause. Why he chose to take this step will possibly always remain a mystery.

Capt. McQuarrie Killed
Capt. Donald McQuarrie of Nelson, B.C. nephew of Pte. Ronald McQuarrie of Gore Bay has been reported killed in action.
He has been fighting for his country since the first year of the war. Twice he was wounded, once so seriously that his recovery was despaired of but his only thought was to return to the firing line as soon as possible.
The Nelson Daily News says in part “Donald McQuarrie died as those who knew him best realize he would have chosen to die. He fell with his face to the enemy, with his comrades beside him and in the hour of victory for the cause for which he considered no risk, no sacrifice no personal suffering too great”.

BRENDA COLLEEN MCQUAT
April 7, 1955 – April 30, 2012
Daughter of Helen (Wright) and Colin McOuat
As I stand on the mountaintop, as the great bird approaches.
She is small in my sight, but grows larger on approach
until I am blessed with the full sight of her graceful wings,
proud countenance and good company.
All too quickly, she grows small again on the horizon and disappears from view.
And I call out, “Look, there. She’s gone.”
But there are other mountaintops beyond me.
And at the precise moment when I note the great bird’s departure from my view, I know there are new eyes taking up the sight of her.
And fresh voices calling out, “Here she comes!”

Brenda was a scholar, writer, teacher, friend and free spirit. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her. Predeceased by her mother, Helen, with whom she shared the love of nature.

JOHN BATEMAN MCQUAY
In loving memory of John Bateman McQuay, October 11, 1921 to December 12, 2003.
John Bateman McQuay, a resident of Mindemoya, died peacefully on Friday, December 12, 2003, in Mindemoya Hospital, at the age of 82 years.
He was born in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, son of the late Doctor Russell and Gladys (Saunders) McQuay. The family moved to Mindemoya in 1934, where Russell set up a medical practice. Following his father's footsteps, John graduated as a medical doctor from the Faculty of Medicine at Queen's University in 1944. He married Mary Turnbull in the same year, and interned in Kingston. In 1947 they moved to Mindemoya, where he joined his father's medical practice. He quickly became known and loved as "Doctor Jack". After his father became disabled in 1949, Doctor Jack served as the only doctor in the area until 1970, when other doctors began to arrive. He continued faithfully serving the community in full-time practice until 1991, easing into retirement over the next decade.
Doctor Jack loved his vocation as family practitioner, and was dedicated to his patients. He worked long hours, making hospital rounds in the morning, seeing patients in the afternoon and sometimes in the evening, and calmly handling emergencies at any hour of the day or night. For many years he held a weekly clinic in West Bay. He often visited patients in their homes, and in the days before ambulance service, even brought patients to the hospital himself. He was a skilled physician who performed many kinds of surgery, but his greatest enjoyment was delivering babies, and he estimated he delivered over 2000 babies in his career. He also served as coroner for Manitoulin and the North Shore for 20 years. In 1991 the College of Family Physicians of Canada presented him with a Special Recognition Award for his outstanding service.
Doctor Jack will also be remembered for his dedication to his community. As Chair of the Board of Central Manitoulin High School, he worked to establish the Manitoulin Secondary School, serving all of the Island.
As founding member of the Manitoulin Centennial Board, he helped set up the Manor in Little Current. He served as President of the Mindemoya Area Chamber of Commerce in the 1960s. He was a founding member of the Central Manitoulin Lions Club, and later received the Lions' Melvin Jones Fellow award for dedicated humanitarian services. He was a modest person, but he greatly appreciated this recognition. He was also a founding member of the Mindemoya Curling Club. In 1994, the Carnarvon Township named him as Citizen of the Year, and in September 2003, in ill health, he was particularly pleased when Central Manitoulin Township presented him with its Senior of the Year award. He and his wife Mary were members of St. Francis of Assisi Anglican Church. For relaxation, Jack and Mary very much enjoyed curling, playing bridge, and golfing. He loved playing the piano, and his other hobbies included photography, stamp collecting, gardening, swimming and sailing on Lake Mindemoya, and rug hooking.
Doctor Jack was devoted to his family, who will remember his encouragement and loving support. Dearly loved and loving husband of Mary McQuay (predeceased). Loved father of Marilyn (husband Martin Chilton) of Kingston, Paul (wife Marion Carroll) of Fort McMurray, Alta, Janice McQuay of Mindemoya and Betty McQuay of Toronto.

Duncan McQueen
The late Duncan McQueen spent his early life in the royal burgh of Inverary, the county town of Argyleshire, Scotland. This beautiful little town is situated on Loch Fyne, the herring of which is celebrated, and the herring fishery is the chief industry. A mile away stands the castle of the Duke of Argyle. Near the town church stands an obelisk in memory of the Campbells who were hanged without a trial, for their share in connection with the Duke of Monmouth’s rebellion 1685, and the market-cross, eight feet high, is supposed to have been brought from the island of Iona 1472, and is a beautiful specimen of Scottish sculpture. Here Duncan spent his early days and he served as one of the Duke of Argyle’s soldiers. He had a warm spot in his heart both for the old duke of his younger days, and for the late duke, formerly Marquis of Lorne. He has shown the writer view marking where the soldiers drilled, and where the great Caledonian games were held.
Mr. McQueen came to Manitoulin about forty years ago and had long occupied his farm on the Government Road between two and three miles from Providence Bay. He was yearly seen at the Fair, Providence Bay where he usually took prizes for his cows. He had reached seventy-six years of age. His brother, John, predeceased him seven years ago, and in the same grounds, Providence Bay cemetery, the remains of Duncan were laid to rest.

Death of Mr. John McQueen
The late John McQueen was born at Loch Awe Side, Argyleshire, Scotland, in 1835. When he was a year old his parents removed to Inverary, the county town and seat of the Duke of Argyle. Here he received a good education at the Presbyterian School.
He learned the trade of a ship carpenter, and as such, at the age of eighteen he visited the East Indies.
In 1860, while pursuing this occupation en route to Bombay, he was shipwrecked, and then joined the British Navy, in which he served for three years. Returning to Inverary, he entered into the fishing industry, but after a time business becoming slack he returned to sailing.
In 1873 he joined the American Navy in which he served for three years and seven months.

FINE CITIZEN LOST IN DEATH OF CROWN ATTORNEY
The death of the late W.F. McRae, K.C. Has removed a respected citizen and a brilliant professional man from the ranks of the people of the Manitoulin. Besides a large practice he engaged in several business undertakings and had gained a host of friends in his dealings with people in every walk of life. He was a keen observer and a lover of wildlife and many are the times when in his inimitable manner he pleased friends in tellings about his experiences of the woods.
The late Mr. McRae is believed to be the first white child to be born in Gore Bay, where he spent most of his life. He was immensely proud of his town and was a staunch supporter of all public activities and of the Anglican Church.
Except for a period spent in Toronto qualifying for legal status, the deceased spent practically his entire life in the community. He graduated from Osgoode Hall in 1908 and was articled for a time to the firm of Bristol, Bailey and Armour.
At 25 years of age, he returned to Gore Bay and became associated with the late R.R. McKessock, in the practice of law. When R.R. McKessock became crown attorney at Sud??, Mr.McRae took over the law offices and subsequently assumed practice on his own. In 1911, he was appointed crown attorney as successor to Alexander G. Murray, K. C., now of Fort Frances. Up to the time of his death, he continued in this office, being junior to but one other crown attorney in the province, W .I. Dick, of Milton.
During the last war he served overseas with the Adjutant-General's Department and returned with the rank of Major.
Several years ago, he was elected Deputy Grand Master of the Nipissing district for the Masonic Lodges in which capacity he became well known as an excellent speaker.
He is survived by his widow and three children, a son, John, a student at Ridley College, and two daughters, Jane and Nancy, both of whom reside at home; a brother, George R. McRae, of Gore Bay, and a sister, Mrs. Milton Brett, also of Gore Bay. His parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. William McRae, predeceased him several years ago.

Obituary -
A short sketch of the life of the late Major Wm. McRae
Major William McRae departed this life at 4 p.m. on the 3rd. Nov. 1890, aged eighty-six years, five months and three days.
He was the eldest son of the late Colonel Farquahar McRae, of Hopetown, Quebec, where he was born on May 31st, 1804.
During his lifetime he filled several important positions. At an early age he was appointed by his father, Deputy Grand Voyer, and held this office for ten years, his jurisdiction extending over the two counties of Bonadventure and Gaspe. He was a good Parisian French scholar, and was appointed translator for the civil and and criminal courts of the counties above named, which positions he held for several years, being afterwards made president of the Commissioners Court in his District over which he presided until he came to Ontario.
He belonged to the first battallion of Bonadventure Militia and received the commission of Lieutenant and subsequently that of Major.
He was a lineal descendant of the celebrated Scotch Chieftain, Cameron of Locjiel.
His grandfather, Colonel Duncan McRae, was a native of Inverness, Scotland and came with his regiment to Quebec at the time of the siege in1759, in which he took part. The sword that he carried on that occasion had been handed down from father to son and is now treasured as an heirloom by one of his great grandsons, Mr. A. C. McRae, of this place.
Colonel Duncan McRae remained in Quebec, where his son, Colonel Farquahar McRae, was born in 1776, who also was married in Quebec to a Highland Scotch lady, one Margaret Gow, whose people were U.E. Loyalists. He afterwards moved to Hopetown, Quebec, where, as previously stated, Major William McRae was born. In 1830 the latter married Isabella Ross, whose people were also U.E. Loyalists but originally came from Ross-shire in Scotland. They had twelve children of whom six are now living.
In 1858 he came to Canada West, now Ontario, and travelled over the greater portion of it to satisfy himself as to the future prospects of the country, and having formed a very favourable opinion of it, he afterwards moved his family to Euphrasia in the County of Grey, where he settled on a farm and kept the Duncan Post Office from the time it was established until he left there about ten years ago when he and his wife moved to Gore Bay, Manitoulin Island, with their son, A. C. McRae, the rest of the family being married. He died on the same day of the same month as his wife, just six years later.
He was a man of strict integrity and was esteemed by all who knew him. His remains were interred in the Gordon Cemetery by the side of his deceased wife. The obsequies were conducted by the Rev. J. H. McLeod, Incumbent of All Saints Church, Gore Bay.

FRANKLIN HENRY McSHANE
December 10, 1919 - April 24, 2009
In loving memory of Frank McShane, a resident of Kagawong, who died at the Manitoulin Lodge on Friday, April 24, 2009 at the age of 89 years. He was born at the farm in Kagawong, son of the late William and Margaret (McGill) McShane. Frank left Manitoulin as a young man, traveling to Sault Ste. Marie to begin a career with the Royal Bank. He returned to the farm in Kagawong, after his father's health deteriorated, and began to run a cow-calf beef operation. Frank had many interests, including hunting, golfing, playing cards, music (he was in the Kagawong Orchestra), and spending time with friends and family. He was an avid reader, devouring countless books on an eclectic number of topics, and a supporter of the development of a first class library for Billings Township. He was an adventurer, who passed his love of travelling and camping on to his children, having shared many summers traveling through much of the U.S and Canada with his family. Frank was a "dog" man, and shared his life with many canine friends over the years. With his love of books and education, it was fitting that he married a teacher, Joyce Elliott, and shared 46 years of marriage with her. He was active in politics, serving on Billings Council for 27 years and helping with Lester B. Pearson's campaign in the Algoma- Manitoulin riding in the 1960s. Frank served several terms on the Board of Directors for the Manitoulin Livestock Co-Op. Frank is survived by his loved and loving wife Joyce, son Jim and his wife Linda of Ottawa, daughter Heather and her husband Harold Jefkins of Gordon Township. Proud and loving Grandpa of Michael (predeceased) and Jack McShane and Bella Jefkins. Predeceased by brothers Jim and Fred. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Frank's wit and good humour will be remembered by all who had a chance to visit with him--he will be missed. Friends called at the Culgin Funeral Home on Monday from 7 - 9 pm. The funeral service was conducted in the Wm. G. Turner Chapel on Tuesday, April 28, 2009 at 11 am with Pastor Erwin Thompson officiating. Interment in Kagawong Cedars Cemetery.
