Submitted by Pat Dominie

Chase Mills
Mrs. Ira Harriman
The angel of death has again visited our little village and claimed another of our oldest residents, Mrs. Ira Harriman, whose death occurred Thursday afternoon, Oct. 6, 1921. She had been in failing health for some time, suffering from hardening of the arteries, and was tenderly cared for by her daughter, Mabel, who resides at home.
Margaret Countryman was born in Aultsville, Canada, March 3, 1843, and lived there during her early girlhood. She came to this country when she was about twenty-one and in Sept. 1865, was united in marriage to Ira Harriman, going directly to their home two miles below Chase Mills in the town of Louisville, where they lived until fifteen years ago, when they sold the farm to their son, Walter, and bought the Silas Young place in this village, where they have since made their home.
Twelve children were born to them, William of Iowa, Myron of Missouri, Austin of Potsdam, Nellie (Mrs. Warren Abernathy) of Chamberlain Corners, John of Texas, Mary (Mrs. Geo. Fisher) of Madrid, Lydia (Mrs. Walter Green) of Schenectady, Emma who died in infancy, Walter residing on the home place, Jennie (Mrs. Myron Stark) of Barker, N. Y., Cara (Mrs. Maurice Pohl of Syracuse, and Mabel who lived at home and has tenderly cared for her mother during her sickness. Mrs. Harriman was a woman ever ready to help those in trouble and sickness and will be sadly missed by her loved ones in the home which she loved so well.
The funeral was held Saturday afternoon, Oct. 8, at two o'clock, Rev. G. H. Harland of Chipman, officiating, assisted by Rev. T. W. Carling. Rev. Carling sang two solos, "Linger with me, Precious Savior" and "There'll be no dark valley." Burial was made in Greenview cemetery.
Besides her husband, who is in his eighty-sixth year, and her children, she is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Jane Warner and Mrs. Mary Myers of Aultsville, Canada, and several brothers in the West.
Those from out of town attending the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. Barney Browning, daughter Anna, and son, Samuel, Mrs. and Mrs. Samuel Browning and Barrett Harriman of Louisville Landing.
(NOTE - from other articles, I believe Margaret was the daughter of John and Mary Hunter Countryman)

A fatal accident occurred at North Valley on Thursday evening of last week resulting in the death of Mr. Christopher Hart, a very highly esteemed resident of the Township of Osnabruck. Mr. Hart and Bernard, had been engaged drawing in some hay. They had unloaded and were returning home when the horse ran away. Mr. Hart was thrown from the wagon and instantly killed, his ribs being broken on both sides and his skull fractured. Bernard Hart was severely injured, but forgot his own injuries in his grief for his father. He is now improving. Christopher Hart was a son of the late George Hart. He was born at Gallingertown in 1832. He and his brother Bernard bought farms side by side and settled here. The late Christopher Hart leaves seven children - George Hart, barrister, of Winchester, Calvin, Violetta, Hattie and Stella. Arthur, who lives in Massachusetts was home only six weeks ago attending the funeral of his mother. The deceased was a man of sterling character. He was a devout member of the Church of England. In politics he was a staunch Conservative. A pathetic incident of the sad event is the fact that it came on the birthday of the deceased and his family had planned a pleasant little surprise for him for that evening. The funeral took place on Saturday at St. George's Church, Rev. Mr. Hunter officiating. There was a very large assemblage. The rev. gentleman spoke of the deceased as one in whom they could always find a friend. He was devoted to duty, a hard working ernest man. The pall bearers were Messrs. Grandaw, Thomas Brown, Adam Bush, David Alguire, Charles McEwan and Hamilton Bush. The floral offerings were very beautiful. The members of the family desire to tender their thanks to the kind friends who stood by them in their great trouble.

Mrs. Hitsman had been patient sufferer for a number of months at the home of her daughter Laura where she came to live a few years ago. Her suffering was great the last few days, but she bore it all without a murmur. She was an earnest Christian woman, always ready to do for others what her hands could find to do, always ready in time of sickness to lend a helping hand and had been heard to say when God wants me I am ready to go. His will be done. She was a mother who loved her children dearly and always loved to have them with her. She was tenderly cared for by her daughter, Laura, assisted by her other daughters who could come to help, but on bright noon God said come and she was laid at rest. She was born in Chrysler, Canada in 1844, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Baker. Coming to this side she was married to John Hitsman. To them were born ten children, eight daughters and two sons, all of whom survive her excepting one son, Frank, who passed away 21 years ago: Ella Gillespie of Seattle, Jane Ruport, Norfolk; Emma Hough, Madrid; Clara Bradley, Buck's Bridge; John of Poughkeepsie; Maggie Beswick, Springfield, Mass.; Nettie Wright of Kingston; Myrtle Joyce of Madrid, and Laura Bellinger with who she lived.

E. choir rendered three selections. The bearers were her four sons-in-law. Interment was in the Scotch cemetery near Waddington.

A cheerful and happy family
   Dwelt quiet and free from care,
But the angel stole in softly
   And stood all silent there,

Then slowly the angel in silence
   Struck home the mortal blow,
And in the calm bright morning
   He laid our mother low.

Her place is vacant in our home
   Which never can be filled,
Her voice is still forever more
   Her heart and hands are stilled.

Her hands are folded on her breast
   We have kissed her marble brow,
And in our aching hearts we know
   We have no mother now.

G. F. Jardine, Newington, Dies Suddenly
Word was received here yesterday of the death of G. F. Jardine, at Newington, who passed away there suddenly after noon. Prior to his death, Mr. Jardine was in his usual health and after his noon-day meal, went to the shed for some wood and, on returning to the house, sat down and then fell over and when Dr. Dickey arrived shortly afterwards, life was extinct. The deceased gentleman was 68 years of age and was born at Newington, a son of the late Ferguson Jardine. For years he conducted a general store and the Post Office at Newington and filled the position of Secretary of the Stormont Agricultural Society for years. His close association with the public for so long a time made him a host of friends who deeply sympathize with the bereaved family, the members of which are his widow, five daughters and one son.

In still another way, Mr. Jardine served the community. For a number of years he was local manager for the Bell Telephone Company and under his supervision the system expanded and flourished. For forty-nine years he was the assiduous Secretary-Treasurer of the Stormont Agricultural Society. Mr. Jardine was a member of the Newington United Church and one of the most active workers in the congregation. He also took part in the Sunday School for over thirty years and supported both school and church ardently at all times.

Former Star of Local Sportdom Widely Mourned - George A. Lapensee Dies On Saturday; Ill Only Two Weeks
Cornwall lost a good sportsman in the death of George A. Lapensee which occurred at Hotel Dieu Hospital in the early hours of Saturday morning. Although not well for some time, Mr. Lapensee was able to attend to his duties until two weeks ago, when he was compelled to stay at home. He entered the hospital Monday morning and was operated on Tuesday. Strong hopes were held out for his recovery until Friday noon, when a change for the worse set it, and he gradually weakened until the last spark of life flickered at 2:35 o'clock Saturday morning. He passed away fortified by the last rites of the Catholic Church. He was a member of Nativity Church.

George Lapensee was one of the best known and most popular men in Cornwall. Born in Cornwall and spending his entire life here, with the exception of a short time in Montreal, he, like many Cornwall boys, took up lacrosse and hockey in his school days at the Separate and High Schools and later figured on local industrial and other teams in both branches of sport and played a number of games with the Cornwall senior lacrosse team as well as with the National A.A.A. Team, Montreal, while he was employed by the Northern Electric Company in the city for a season. He played lacrosse with the Strathconas and Tecumachs in local leagues, and hockey with the Red Stars, Rough Riders, Ives Bedding Company's team and Howard Smith Paper Company's team. He was a hard-working, consistent player in both sports, but a gentleman always, never taking any undue advantage over an opponent. He preferred to lose honestly to winning by underhand or crooked means, and the recognition of these excellent qualities made him a favorite among those with whom he played opposing teams and the public who patronized the sport. His death removes an honorable man from sportdom in Cornwall.

Mr. Lapensee passed his 50 birthday three months ago. He was a son of Joseph Lapensee. After completing his education in the High School, he worked for a short time at Campbell Brothers' grocery (Kilgour's), and for 15 years was a conductor on the Cornwall Electric Street Railway, being one of the first employees on the road and was courteous and obliging to the public. He went to Montreal and worked a short time for the Northern Electric Company. Returning home 17 years ago, he secured a position in the machine shop at Howard Smith Paper Mills, continuing at this occupation until two weeks ago.

Besides his wife (Lorena Dumont), he leaves sons and one daughter to mourn his loss - Percy Lapensee, Windsor, Ont., Cleonis Lapensee and George Lapensee, at home; Mrs. Malcolm Upper (Leona), Cornwall. He also leaves three brothers and two sisters - Arthur Lapensee and Leo Lapensee, of Montreal; Philip Lapensee of Falher, Alta., Mrs. Charles O'Callaghan, of Montreal; Mrs. Harry Boucher of Rochester, NY. The funeral was held Monday morning from his home 33 Elm Street to Nativity Church and St-Columban's Cemetery, and was attended by many friends and admirers, among whom were many of those with whom he has been associated in lacrosse and hockey. The Requiem High Mass was sung by Reverend Duncan McDonald. Pall bearers were A. Dupras, L. Poirer, A. Poirer, P. Collins, J. Dumond, J. Girard.

DEATH OF MR. JEREMIE LAURIN
We regret to announce the death of Mr. Jeremie Laurin, and old and highly esteemed resident of the town, which occurred at the Hotel Dieu Hospital on Feb 6th. The deceased was born in Montreal eighty-six years ago, a son of the late John Baptiste Laurin, but had been a resident of Cornwall for the past fifty years. He was a man of fine character and enjoyed the high esteem of all who knew him. Mr. Laurin saw many changes in Cornwall during the half century of his residence here and was fond of recounting incidents connected with the earlier history of the town, with which he was especially well familiar, making him a most interesting conversationalist, and his anecdotes of the long ago were greatly enjoyed by those of the present day. He was proud of the fact that he was spared to see the fourth generation in his family, being the progenitor of ninety-five children – eight of the second generation; forty-five of the third generation; forty-two of the fourth generation- something that does not fall to the lot of many men. The deceased is survived by five sons and three daughters- Messrs. Jeremie, Ludger, Pierre, Henry and Joseph Laurin; Mrs. Joseph Miron, Mrs. Nelson Contant and Mrs. John Brisson.

Sad Passing Of Bright Child Is Mourned Here Dorothy Rose Lebano, Pupil At St. Columban's Convent Dies Thursday

Dorothy Rose Lebano, a bright young pupil of the Convent School, Augustus street, died early Thursday morning at the home of her parents, Louis Lebano, of the City Public Works staff, and Mrs. Lebano, 541 Augustus street, following a long illness. Dorothy as she was known by her friends, was taken ill while in church during confirmation services at St. Columban's on May 26, 1931. Later she had trouble with her eyes and was treated locally and in the Royal Victorial Hospital, Montreal and by specialists in the city. Her ailment eventually developed into a tumour[sic] in the brain and she was confined to her bed from the past eight months. She was given every care and attention by her physician, nurses and parents, but it was all to no avail and she slept peacefully away shortly before six o'clock Thursday morning, surrounded by her parents and other members of the family. Dorothy Lenano was born in Cornwall 12 years and 27 days ago and was a most lovable child. She was diligent in her studies at school and was a model pupil. Though only in the Juniorfourth Class at the Convent, she was so well advanced that it was likely she would have been permitted to write on the Entrance Examinations last June had her health not failed her. She was beloved alike by her teachers and fellow-pupils and her death will be mourned by all who knew her. She went through her trying illness with a courage and patience that was beautiful to behold in one so young. That she was aware that the end was impending was illustrated about a month ago, when she made a peculiar request to her parents, asking that she be allowed to choose the nature of the clothes that she would be buried in and specifying that a white casket be procured. The clothes were ordered and the young girl had the pleasure of seeing and approving them, her last wishes being carried out in every detail. Left to mourn her loss are her sorrowing parents, two brothers and two sisters - Angelo and Vincent Lebano, students at the C.C.I. and Margaret and Grace Lebano. The funeral is being held this morning from the home of her parents, 541 Augustus Street to St. Columban's Church and cemetery.

Mrs. Dan Leroux Dies Saturday - Short Illness - Was 86, Six Days Before Her Death; Resided in Cornwall 51 Years.
In the enjoyment of good health up to a month ago and able to be about the house and quite smart until two weeks ago, Mrs. Daniel Leroux, aged resident of East Cornwall, died at the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs. Allan Sabourin, 24 McConnell Avenue North at 7:45 o’clock Saturday evening. Mrs. Leroux had been in bed out two weeks, old age being largely responsible for her death, the machinery of life gradually growing weaker after she took to her bed. She was a remarkable woman in many respects. She died fortified by the last rights of the church she loved so well and of which she was a faithful member for so long a period.

Mrs. Leroux was born in St-Andrews, Ont, a few miles north of Cornwall, September 10, 1853, and was six days past her 86th birthday when she died. She was a daughter of Louis Amell and his wife Mary Gadbois, her maiden being Lucy Amell. She was married September 30, 1872, to Daniel Leroux, and they took up residence in Alexandria, where they remained a few years.

They moved to Seward, Nebraska, and resided in that place for five years and spent the next three years in Lincoln, Nebraska, after which they returned to St-Andrews. In the fall of 1888, about 51 years ago, the family came to Cornwall from St-Andrews, and Mrs. Leroux had since made her home here. She has seen Cornwall grow settle from a poorly settled community with few conveniences to its present fine status as a young city, with all modern improvements in and out of homes. She has always been a member of Nativity Church and was an ardent worker in the Ladies of Ste-Anne Society as long as she was able.

Mr. Leroux died here May 7, 1893, in his 44th year, leaving the care of a family of 12 to his wife, a task she underwent cheerfully and carried through to a successful issue. Of that family, eight are still alive, one son and seven daughters - W.D. (Dan) Leroux, of the staff of the King George Hotel; Mrs. Philip Lapensée, Falher, Alberta; Mrs. Frank Blanchette, Massena, NY; Mrs. James Gagnier, Valleyfield, Que; Mrs. Louis Banville, Mrs. John Lemieux and Mrs. Allan Sabourin, all in Cornwall; Mrs. Norman Taillon, Flanagan's Point. She also leaves a brother and sister, Francis Amell, St-Andrews, who is 84 years old, and Mrs. Maggie Kennedy, Cornwall, 75 years old.

The funeral will be held Tuesday morning at 8:45 o'clock, from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Allan Sabourin, 24 McConnell Avenue North, to Nativity Church for Requiem High Mass at 9:00 o'clock. Burial will be made in Nativity Cemetery.

FATHER MANSON, OF CORNWALL, GOES TO HIS REWARD
Our corps had been dwindling for years, and was on the decline when Father Manson was enrolled. He had a large acquaintance also in town; but apart from that, his tall, spare figure, shaven face, broken nose and the tears in his eyes as he testified to the goodness and nearness of God on the streets, gave his testimony a more ordinary influence. The country church building was not large enough to hold the crowd at the funeral service. Residing in his native village, Mille Roches (he was a farmer), six miles from the barracks, he seldom got to meeting but on Sundays and holidays. He was never commissioned for office in the corps. His memory is a rich legacy of blessings to us soldiers; his enjoyment of service was so steadfast. Comrade Leslie M. surprised the two or three of us around the barrack's stove, in the fall, when he said, "I guess father has been down to his last meeting." He had been complaining of not feeling well for some time, but we supposed it to be some trifling ailment. "He came to town yesterday to see a doctor, and was told in effect that his days on earth were numbered. The doctor did not plainly tell him that it was cancer, as he admitted to me today, but that the only relief for him was by the knife, and if he was a younger man, that he would advise. He must chose for himself. 'Well, doctor,' said father, 'I've lived longer than I ever expected, my sins are forgiven. I'm not afraid to die, I'm ready to die , so I don't see any use in an operation.' The doctor replied that he knew he was a Christian man, so he had been able to talk plainly to him." Two weeks before his death a party of ten of us drove up to Mille Roches at night to see him. Seated in a rocker by the stove, he greeted us pleasantly, while we noticed the changed color [sic] and added thinness of his face. How eagerly he turned from old comrades to shake hands with a six-weeks'-old beginner on the way of life and repeat to him the pleasure it gave to see him in such company. He said to us that he was content, was happy; and had lived longer than he had expected. The local paper (Cornwall Standard) had the following notice in its columns: "Mr. William Manson, one of the oldest and most respected residents of Mille Roches, died very suddenly on the 16th inst. [16 Feb 1900] He was 77 years of age and had lived an exemplary life. Mr. Manson had been a faithful soldier of the Salvation Army. His funeral was conducted by Adjt. Hendricks, of Ottawa, who was stationed in Cornwall about 9 years ago, and she was assisted by Adjt. Ogilvie of Cornwall. About twenty soldiers and officers from Mille Roches and Cornwall attended the funeral in a body, and marched from his late residence to the church, where Adjt. Hendricks conducted a very solemn and impressive service. His remains were interred in the Mille Roches cemetery. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community." M. Piercy

Royal Mattice Killed by Falling Tree
Avonmore - Royal Mattice, 72 year-old farmer of the Sixth Concession of Roxborough, 3 1/2 miles north of Avonmore and 24 miles north of Cornwall, was instantly killed on his farm at 10:30 o'clock Monday morning, when a tree which he was cutting fell on him as he was endeavoring to escape and crushed him against a stone fence. His body was badly mutilated and one leg was broken.
The tree, about two feet in diameter, stood in a clearance, about midway between Mr. Mattice's home and the concession road. Mr. Mattice was awaiting the arrival of a neighbor, Edward Rupert, who was to assist him cutting wood, and was working on the tree in the meantime. Mr. Rupert was nearing the Mattice farm and saw the tree fall and crush Mr. Mattice. Mrs. Mattice also witnessed the accident from her home.
Dr. J. M. Pollock, of Avonmore, and Dr. J. Howard Munro, of Maxville, were summoned. It was announced that an inquest was unlikely, it evidently being a case of accidental death.
Mr. Mattice was born in Finch township and was the son of the late Stephen Mattice and his wife, Mary Waldroff. He was twice married, first to Christina Montgomery and, after her death, to Ellen Waldroff.
He is survived by his second wife, one daughter, Mrs. Sterling Dillabough (Bessie), of Massena, N. Y.; two sisters, Mrs. Fred Tygart, Leroy, N. Y.; Mrs. Jack Brownell, Newington; and four brothers, Stanley Mattice, Massena, N. Y.; Harry and Albert Mattice, Newington; and Anson Mattice, Finch.
The funeral was held from his residence at 1:30 Wednesday afternoon for service at St. James United Church, Avonmore, at 2 pm. The service was conducted by Rev. C. H. Ferguson. Interment took place at Hillcrest Cemetery, Newington.

DEATH OF A PROMINENT CITIZEN.
Mr. George McDonell (Athol), Is No More.
The announcement of the death of Mr. George McDonell, Postmaster of Cornwall, was received with profound regret by citizens of all classes. While he had been in poor health for some time, he was able to attend to the duties of his office, and on Sunday last appeared to be feeling better than he had for several weeks past. On Tuesday night he was seized with an attack of acute pneumonia. Everything possible was done for him, but he never rallied and passed away last night.
The late George McDonell had been a prominent figure in the town of Cornwall for over a quarter of a century and he enjoyed the unbounded respect of all who knew him. A man of keen intellect and wide experience, his opinion was highly valued in all matters affecting the interest of the community, while his sterling character and genial disposition won him hosts of friends who will learn of his death with very deep sorrow. He was an enthusiastic supporter of the organizations whose object it is to foster and perpetuate the love of Auld Scotia in the hearts of her sons, and was President of the St. Andrews Society for many years. He spoke the Gaelic language fluently and was never more happy than when in the company of his fellow countrymen who were similarly favoured. In his death, Cornwall suffers a great loss. To his intimate associates, his memory will long be kept green by the recollection of his kindly nature and ready sympathy.
The late Mr. McDonell was born in Invernesshire, Scotland, in 1824, being the youngest child of a family of 16 composed of 12 sons and 4 daughters, his father being Angus McDonell and his mother Ann Stewart. The family came to Canada in 1827 and settled in Kenyon township, Glengarry. Here he grew up to manhood, steadily rising in the esteem of the people as the years advanced. He was educated at the Alexandria High School and started out in commercial life as a timekeeper and later as a foreman on the construction work of the Beauharnois canal. On the completion of the latter, he went to Athol to take charge of a store there for Mr. A. F. MacDonell, which he later purchased. He moved to Cornwall in 1868 and opened a general store. He was appointed Postmaster in 1870 and counting the time, he filled a similar position at Athol he was 30 years in the employ of the Postoffice Department. He took a deep interest in municipal affairs and was for 14 years reeve of the township of Roxborough and in 1860, he was elected Warden of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry by acclamation. In 1897, he was elected Mayor of Cornwall, being the unanimous choice of the people. He filled the position with the same dignity and careful regard for the public interest that has marked his whole official life. He always manifested a deep interest in educational matters and was for a number of years secretary-treasurer of the High School Board, a position he held at the time of his death. He was a veteran of 1837-38, having served in the Kenyon Battalion of the Canadian militia. He rose successively to the rank of lieutenant, captain and major and succeeded in the lieutenant colonelcy the late Hon John Sandfield MacDonald, who was one of his warm personal friends. In his early days, Mr. McDonell was a keen politician and he was always a staunch supporter of the Conservative cause. The late Sir John MacDonald was one of his intimate friends, and he took great pleasure in recounting his experiences in the early campaigns in which he fought for the man who afterwards became the greatest statesman the Dominion has known.
His widow, and step-daughter, Mrs. J.A. Liddell, and two sons, Messrs. Angus S. McDonell, of Cornwall, and James McDonell, of Bradford, Pa., have the most sincere sympathy of the community in their bereavement. The funeral will take place on Sunday morning leaving his late residence at 9 o’clock for St. Columban’s Church, proceeding thence to Williamstown where he will be buried in accordance with his own desire.

Berwick, Stormont County, Ontario, May 9, 1916 Died: John J. McIntyre
The Township of Finch lost one of most highly respected citizens in person of the late John J. McIntyre, who died very suddenly and unexpectedly at his home in the fifth concession of Finch on the evening of Tuesday, May 9 [1916]. Mr. McIntyre, who was in his 75th year, had an attack of all prevalent measles some two months ago and although he had been enjoying excellent health all winter still this affliction proved a serious drain on his constitution and no doubt hastened his end. He had so far recovered from the attack of measles as to be able to be out around and began to do a few chores and on the day of his death seemed to be feeling fully better than usual and after having had dinner, he took a walk down to his first neighbour, Wm. Legrove, and after spending a couple of hours with him, walked home again, ate a hearty supper and went to the barn and stables and assisted in milking, but on returning to the house took suddenly ill with acute indigestion and expired in the course of an hour. Mr. McIntyre was one of the pioneers of Finch, having been born in the first concession, where he lived with his parents, Mr. and Mrs John McIntyre until 51 years ago, January 11, when he married Sarah Doran and after living in Finch village, then called South Finch, for a couple of years, they went to the bush to hew themselves out a home on lot 18 in the 5th concession of the Township of Finch, where they have resided continually up to the time of his decease, and succeeded in making their home one of the most desirable farm homes in the Township. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. W. D. Bell, Presbyterian Minister of Finch village at Mr. McIntyre’s late residence, taking as his text Rev. 21-5, "Behold I make all things new." The remains were followed to the cemetery in the first concession of Finch by a large and sympathetic procession of old friends and neighbors. Mr. McIntyre leaves to mourn his loss his widow, his only son John on the homestead; two daughters - Mrs. A. O. Miller, Avonmore and Mrs. Donald Henry, Berwick. Mr. McIntyre was a life long Liberal in politics and a Presbyterian of the old school and was one of the managers of Old St. Lukes, Finch, and a valued member of Crysler congregation, where he and his family worshipped until they joined the congregation at Finch village. He was a man of sterling qualities, one whose word was as good as any bond, and he will be missed not only by his immediate family but also by all his old neighbors and a host of friends and acquaintances. The pallbearers were six of his live long friends, Wm. Stark, T. Casey, Philip Empey, Wm. Humes, John Humes and Wm. Dillabough. Among friends from a distance were George Grimson of Montreal, Earl M. Miller, grandson, of the Bank of Ottawa, Chesterville, and his old neighbour John H. McMillan, Postmaster, Cornwall.

Obituaries George S. Reynolds
The Rev. George S. Reynolds was born on the 31st day of October, 1854, in Cartwright, Durham County, Ontario, and was nurtured in a godly home which contributed four young men to the ministry of the Methodist Church. In his youth the religious life developed in a normal way, quickening and deepening into definite Christian experience as he approached manhood. He first avowed himself a Christian three years before he offered himself to the Church for her ministry. He was received on trial in the Toronto Conference in 1874, and began his labors on the Albion Circuit, and was appointed successively to Kleinburg, Bracebridge, and Hillsdale. In 1878, he was in Montreal at the Theological College. Thereafter his stations were Port Carling, Cartwright and Cressy in the Toronto Conference, and Newburgh and Brighton in the Bay of Quinte Conference. In 1885, on the death of Rev. Andrew Smith, he was taken to Cornwall as a supply. There he found a most efficient helpmate for the remainder of his life in Lydia A. Brown, daughter of the late David Brown, P.L.S. In Montreal Conference his stations were Seeley's Bay, Elgin, Mallorytown, Waterloo, Montreal (West End), and Carleton Place. In all these circuits he proved himself an acceptable, diligent and beloved pastor of the people and preacher of the Word. In his last charge, notwithstanding much indifferent health, his work was most successful and very highly appreciated. He enjoyed in a large degree the affection of his own people and won the admiration of all sections of the Christian community by his interest in questions of civic righteousness and moral reform, and by his courage and wisdom in dealing with the social problems of the day. The last days of his earthly life were marked by much suffering through increasing weakness of the heart, but were full of hope and enthusiasm for his work. He remained gentle, patient and strong in faith to the end, which came September 5, 1908. The funeral services at Carleton Place, conducted by the Chairman of the District, will not soon be forgotten. The sorely stricken family circle, the bereaved and tearful congregation and the deeply sympathizing sister churches and citizens made the occasion most impressive. The interment was made at Cornwall.

The following item taken from the Grimsby Independent of January 1, 1919, will be of interest to a number of people throughout this section, as deceased was well-known here and was a brother-in-law of Wilson Snetsinger who resides on the Snetsinger homestead, and James Martin and G. F. Jardine. "It is our painful duty to again chronicle the death of another of the prominent citizens of this District in the person of Norman R. Sutherland, who passed away at his home on Robinson Street, South Grimsby, on Friday, December 27, after a brief illness. The deceased gentleman was enjoying his usual health up to within eight days of his death when he was seized with a severe attack of influenza and, in spite of the very best treatment, he grew worse until he passed away. Norman Robert Sutherland was born in 1869 in the village of Russell in the County of Russell, Ontario. At the age of 14 years, he went to Bay City, Michigan, where he spent five years. He then returned to Russell, Ontario, and spent nine years engaged in farming. He then moved to the city of Ottawa and engaged in the horse business which vocation he had followed more or less up to the time of his death. For many years he had put on large attractions at the exhibitions in the form of a hippodrome and Roman chariot races. He had engagements at the Canadian National Exhibition, Toronto; the Central Canada Exhibition, Ottawa; the Great Eastern Exhibition, Sherbrooke, Quebec; the Brockton Big Fair, Brockton, Mass.; Fall Fair and Exhibition, Ogdensburg, NY; and at other big expositions. In 1904 he had his complete outfit of horses and chariots destroyed by fire at Ottawa. The same year he came to Grimsby and engaged in fruit farming, purchasing the farm known as "Lakeview" on the ridge road just above Grimsby. Later, he sold this farm and bought a larger one, and having sold this one, he moved to Robinson Street, South Grimsby, where he has resided for the past number of years. He had also a large stock farm at Burlington. The deceased was a member of the North Grimsby Council for several years. He was a Liberal in politics and an Anglican in religion.

WARNER, Wilfrid
The Freeholder, Cornwall, ON - 31 October 1918
Submitted by Marg McFarlane

Avonmore
Pte. Wilfrid Warner was killed in action somewhere in France on September 28, 1918. He was a son of the late Emerson Warner and Selena Warner of Avonmore where he received his collegiate education. Pte. Warner was only 18 years old when he enlisted four years ago and up till September of this year had never been wounded, although the bullets were so close as to leave slight scratches on his flesh. When his older brother Frank enlisted at the beginning of the war, Wilfrid felt he must go and so straightaway signed up. Frank was unfortunate with gas and has been invalided home where he has steadily been improving in health, but Wilfred must, in a phrase of his own "carry on in the name of humanity". As a boy he was extremely popular and remarkably sympathetic. Among his letters home from time to time he addressed one to his pastor and the congregation from which there is clear testimony to his high ideals and aims of life. The Church and Red Cross Society and home all come in for the soldier's good word in this troublesome time. Pte. Warner has passed the ordeals of battle. Perhaps few soldiers have gone through as many great battles during the last two years and a half. During the last two years, this heroic lad, in his Canadian zeal to see it through and be at the finish had taken only one leave of 10 days in all that time. This young man had the heartiest patriotism that one could find among Canadians. In him his friends saw the making of one of Canada's truest and bravest. One can surely say that Wilfrid did his bit. Among his many adventures in war, there is one that particularly interests his family. While he had to kill, yet there was an inner and better compulsion - that humane heart - which gave him the privilege of rescuing a German officer who would hardly have been as considerate of him had he been in his place. A memorial service for the late Pte. Warner will be held in the Avonmore Presbyterian Church in November.

WOOD, Annas, Mrs.
St. Lawrence Republican and Ogdensburg Weekly Journal, Ogdensburg, New York - 26 July 1911
Submitted by Pat Dominie

On Sunday morning last Mrs. Annas Wood, formerly of Aultsville, passed peacefully away at the home of her eldest daughter, Mrs. William Jackson, of Lisbon, N. Y. Mrs. Wood was born in Grantley on July 3, 1850. In 1870, she married Elias Wood of Gallingertown, where for twenty years the family lived a very happy life; but in March 1891, Mr. Wood died. Soon after this sad event, Mrs. Wood moved to Aultsville, where she lived until 1901, when she sold her home. Since that time, she has shared her time with her devoted children, who loved so much to have mother with them.
About two years ago, her health became seriously impaired, and although everything was done by loving hearts and kind hands to prolong life, her suffering came to an end on Sunday. She was a life-long member of the Methodist church, and her life was exemplary and beautiful. She made many friends and kept them. She had a sunny disposition, although her life was not without clouds. Her thought was ever of others rather than of herself. Even in her severe suffering, she had a smile and a good word for everybody. Her wonderful patience and sweet Christian faith deeply impressed all who knew her.
The funeral service was conducted at Mr. Jackson s home in Lisbon, N. Y., on Monday, the Rev. James Robertson of Chipman, N. Y., officiating, and the precious body, amid flowers and tears of dear friends, and the benedictions of the Rev. R. Stillwell, was laid tenderly to rest in the cemetery at Aultsville, Ont., whither many a heart will occasionally wander and recall the cheerful, helpful, beautiful life she lived, and will feel that "she is not dead, this mother of our affection, but simply gone into that Home, where she no longer needs our poor protection and Christ Himself doth rule."
The deceased leaves two sons, Wallace A. Wood, of Chipman, N. Y., and Arthur Wood of Lisbon, N. Y., and three daughters, Mrs. William Jackson, of Lisbon, N. Y.; Mrs. George Cook, Aultsville, Ont., and Mrs. (Rev.) W. H. English of Massena, N. Y., besides a stepdaughter, Mrs. Rutherford, of Canton, N. Y., and one stepson, George Wood of Toronto; also two brothers and four sisters, M. Beckstead and Erastus Beckstead, of Grantley, Ont.; Mrs. Castleman and Mrs. Wagner, of Toronto; Mrs. Silmser, of Osnabruck, and Mrs. Halliday, of Lisbon, N. Y.
