Obituary, uncited
Death of Mr. A. M. Ironside (handwritten 1905)
Manitowaning deeply regrets to chronicle the death of Mr. A. M. Ironside who passed away at his residence here on Saturday morning, Feb. 25th, death being caused by the rupture of a blood vessel on the brain which induced paralysis.
Mr. Ironside was born at Amherstburg on April 18th, 1837, a date long remembered by the fierce rebellion that was in progress that year. He was one of the first men in the district and has served some forty years in connection with the Department of Indian Affairs at Manitowaning. He was second of the late Capt. George Ironside, Superintendent of Indian Affairs for years both at Amherstburg and Manitowaning. On the death of his father Mr. Ironside was offered the Superintendency but declined and continued as assistant. Previous to taking up his residence here he was in the employ of the Hudson Bay Company under Sir George Simpson, who was a great friend of the family.
The survivors are Mrs. W. Simpson, widow of Mr. Wemyss Simpson of Sault Ste. Marie, who was a cousin of Sir George Simpson; Mrs. T. S. Atkinson, Mr. Atkinson being a brother of Sir Richard Nicholson of London, England; Miss Sarah Ironside, who lives at the old residence at Sault Ste. Marie known at the "Bee Hive;" Mrs. Francis Trotter, wife of the late Mr. James Trotter, chief factor of Hudson Bay; Mrs. J. A. K. Drummond of Kingston, Mr. Drummond being a nephew of Sir George Drummond of Montreal; Mr. Symington Ironside, Canada Customs, Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.; Mr. George Ironside, Canada Customs, Port Arthur; and Mr. John Ironside, who resides at Sault Ste. Marie.
The survivors of his own family are M. C. Ironside, popularly known as Charlie, who has been in the employ of the C.P.R. Steamship Co., British Columbia; Edmund F. Ironside, Canada Customs, Dawson City, Yukon; Sibald Ironside, who is now in Toronto; Muriel B. Ironside, the youngest daughter living at home.
During his official career at Manitowaning he served under the following superintendents:-Capt. Geo. Ironside, Major C. T. Dupont, Capt. Wm. Plummer, J.C. Phipps, and under the agency of Mr. B. W. Ross, and C.L.D. Sims.
Mr. Ironside and family have always enjoyed the confidence and respect of all who have had the pleasure of knowing them, Mr. Ironside proving himself a good citizen, a loving husband, and kind father. Mrs. Ironside who survives her husband, has the entire sympathy of all in her unexpected bereavement. Miss K. H. Drummond, of Kingston, a cousin has been here this winter visiting and did all in her power to cheer and console the bereaved family.
The body was taken from here to Sault Ste. Marie reaching there on Monday, and buried in the family plot, Mr. Ironside being the fifth member. The following acted as pall bearers:- W. H. Plummer, mayor of Sault Ste. Marie; Mr. Knowles, manager of the Traders Bank; F. Hughes, Canada Customs; Mr. Davis, Supt. Of electric light plant; H. Leverine, of the Lake Superior Co.; and Mr. Race, Principal of the High School.
A funeral service was conducted at his residence before leaving for the Soo by the Revs. A. J. Young and S. Cunningham.

Obituary, Manitoulin Expositor, September 13, 1906
Double Death
In a little over a week two sad deaths took place at Winnipeg, Man. R. Lyon White, son of Mr. and Mrs. J.B. White of Manitowaning, died about a week ago from typhoid fever. Mr. J.b. White who had a Government position in the same city, had been ill from pleurisy and feeling somewhat better he went to see his son. He took a relapse and on Tuesday morning he passed away. Mr. White resided for many years at Manitowaning and was well and favourable known throughout the district, having filled the positions of Liquor License Inspector and Governemtn Timber scaler. Lyon occupied the position of teller in the Imperial Bank at Winnipeg and was getting along well. Mrs. White who was living at Manitowaning, left last week for Winnipeg. It will be heartbreaking to her to find that both her son and husband were dead. Truly troubles do not come singly and in the sad double bereavement Mrs. White has the sincerest sympathy of all.

MINDEMOYA RESIDENT LAID TO REST
On Sunday, September 16th, the late William Vincer of Mindemoya was laid to rest. In his death on Friday, September 14, Manitoulin lost a highly respected and civic-minded citizen.
The late Mr. Vincer came as a youth to the Manitoulin from Caledonia district. The Island held such appeal for him that he decided to live his entire life here.
He was first employed with the Mutchmor Lumber County, at Providence Bay and later began farming near Mindemoya Lake on which farm, his son, J.C. Vincer, now lives.
Taking an active interest in township affairs, he was made clerk of Carnarvon Municipality, a position he held for fifty years.
His wife, the former Mary Cushing of Mindemoya, predeceased him about ten years ago. A family of three boys and two girls survive: Wm. and J. C. Vincer of Mindemoya, R.A. Vincer of Ottawa, Mrs. McDougall of Brechin, Ont. and Mrs. Wm. Becks.
The Rev. Ft. J. Dwyer of Wikwemikong conducted the service, the pall-bearers were: J. Burt, A. J. Wagg, Thomas Smith, Geo. Hodgson and J. T. Lowe.

Manitoulin Pioneer Passes at Mindemoya in his 89th Year - 1945
William Vincer Was Resident of Island for Over Seventy Years
In the passing of William Vincer of Mindemoya on Friday, September 14, Manitoulin Island loses one of its most highly respected citizens.
The late Mr. Vincer came as a young man to the Island from the Caledonia area and his first impressions of the Manitoulin were such that he devoted his entire life to the welfare of the community. His first job was with the R.W. Mutchmoor Co., co-operative lumberman at Providence Bay. Later he took up farming near Lake Mindemoya, on a farm which his son J.C. Vincer now operates.
Being interested in his township he eventually accepted the post as clerk of the township of Carnarvon. He held this position for fifty years, discharging his duties in a most commendable manner not only to himself but also to the township. This position is now being carried on by his son William H. Vincer.
Naturally a man who was familiar with the various aspects of municipal life, he took a wholehearted interest in the welfare of the community at large and was at all times willing to give his best to every worthy enterprise.
His wife, Mary Cushing of Mindemoya, predeceased him about ten years ago. A family of three boys and two girls survive, namely: Wm. H. and J.C. Vincer of Mindemoya, R.A. Vincer with the Civil Service at Ottawa (Minnie), Mrs. Wm. Becks and (Jennie) Mrs. McDougall of Brechin, Ontario.
The funeral was conducted by Rev. Fr. Dwyer of Wikwemikong on Sunday, September 16. The pallbearers were six close friends who also officiated at the funeral of the late Mrs. Vincer, namely; Messrs. J.T. Love, Thomas Smith, Geo. Hodgson, J.H. Burt and A.J. Wagg.
Relatives from outside points present at the funeral were Mrs. Ed Arthurs, Espanola and Mr. and Mrs. James Cushing of Kitchener, Ontario.

Note from family member: William came to the Manitoulin at age 15 with his parents. His first job was with the R.W. Mutchmore company as a co-operative lumberman. He took over Robert Love's portion of the farm. He used to go by rowboat to visit Mary (Farquhar farm). Mary came to the Island with her family from Caledonia in 1875 at 21 years of age. They made the trip by S.S. Seymore and landed at Kagawong. The next day they came to West Bay by sailboat then overland to Mindemoya. They lived on the Farquhar farm. William turned Catholic with Mary.

Fatal accident at Mindemoya
James Love Killed in His Barn on Friday
While unloading oats in his barn at Mindemoya on Friday morning Mr.James Love met a sudden and painful death. He was standing on a beam at the top of the barn operating part of the unloader when the rope gave away and the heavy load drew the machine back suddenly, catching him in the side as it went and throwing him out through the sides of the barn falling on his face in the barn yard. When picked up, he was unconscious and never revived, passing away at noon. The force with which he was thrown may be imagined from the fact that when his body struck the wall of the barn, the boards were smashed and his body landed at least ten feet away from the barn. He was badly bruised and possibly injured internally.
The deceased was a pioneer on the Manitoulin, coming her 45 years ago from Dundas. He leaves five daughters and one son, besides his widow,to mourn his death. John, at home, being his only son. The daughters are: Mrs. Joseph Hopkins, Mrs. R. Conley, at Mindemoya, Mrs. J. Miller, Markdale, and Margaret and Grace at home.
The funeral took place from his late residence on Sunday afternoon,andw as conducted by the Rev. Wm. Munro, of Providence Bay. A large number of friends and neighbors were present to show their respect for the deceased and their sympathy for the bereaved family.

Obituary, uncited
James Love
The people of the community were shocked Friday afternoon, August 25, to hear that Mr. James Love had met with an accident that caused his death. Caught by a wheel of the weight lifter which was used to elevate the loads of grain, he was driven through the end of the barn, and dropped a descent of twenty feet outside. The accident was caused by the rope which is drawn by horses to elevate the load breaking when the load was almost in position. Mr. Love was apparently trying to get the dog in position in the cogs of the wheel in order to check its rapid revolution, caused by the weight of the descending load, when he overbalanced himself and falling on the wheel, was carried to his death.
The accident occurred about 8 AM and his spirit fled about noon, he never having recovered consciousness.
The grief stricken family have the profound sympathy of the entire community in their terribly sudden bereavement and irreparable loss.
Mr. James Love was born in Wentworth County, Ontario, in 1852. He was the son of the late Thomas Love, his mother's maiden name being Agnes Hamilton. She was the mother of fifteen children, eleven by her first marriage and four by her second. All of the first family are now dead excepting Mr. Thomas Love of Providence Bay. All of the second family survive. There are Mr. Wm. Vincer, of Mindemoya, clerk of Carnarvon and District Registrar, Mrs. W.I. Bain, Mrs. J.E. Hilborn, of Tehkummah, and Mr. R.H. Cairns, of Vancouver. Mr. Love came to Manitoulin in September, 1879. He worked in the lumber camps at Michael's Bay for a year, and in the winter of 1871 and 1872, returned to Old Ontario. He returned to the Manitoulin in the spring of 1872 and settled on the farm on which he remained until his death.
In 1876 he was married to Miss Elizabeth Fields Robinson. Besides his widow he leaves one son and five daughters, four children having died at an early age. Mr. Love was an elder of the Presbyterian denomination and had a wam interest in all who loved the Lord, irrespective of denominational name. he was also Superintendent of Mindemoya Sunday School for over 20 years. He was possessed of a strong frame and was industrious in his habits. These, together with his good judgement and kindly heart raised him to a position of comfort, influence and favour in the community. He will be much missed in the home, in the community and in the Church. The pall bearers were Messrs. George Bond, John Galbraith, John Cooper, Wm. Hare, John Cochrane and Thomas Farquhar.
The casket was covered with flowers, including a wreath from the Adult Bible Class, and another from the girls' class of Willing workers.

The death of Valentine Willman (sic), aged father of Phil. Willman, which occurred in this city Tuesday, removed a man who only lacked three years of being a centenarian, says the Colfax Gazette. he was born in Quebec, Canada, January 8, 1790, and was in full possession of his mental faculties up to within a week of death. The candle of life burned low and he passed quietly away. His remains were interred in the cemetery at Colfax.

Obituary, The Recorder, Gore Bay, Thursday, May 3, 1923
Death of V.C. Wilman
We are indeed sorry to chronicle the passing away of an old resident in the person of Valentine C. Wilman, on March 24th and was laid to rest in Hilly Grove Cemetery.
Mr. Wilman was one of the earliest pioneers on the south side of the Island, having come with his grandparents who were of U.E. Loyalist stock from Pennsylvania, from Quebec in 1873 to Walker's point on the south shore of the Island where his uncles Christopher and Peter had already established a trading post. They had another at Gore Bay, being among the first white settlers there. Old residents will remember the loss of the "Sea Horse" when both Mr. Wilman's uncles were drowned, also Mr. Love, Mr. Turly and another. They were on their way to Sarnia with their fish.
Shortly after this Mr. Wilman moved to South Bay Mouth where he resided until his death.
Mr. Wilman was a man of sterling integrity and will long be missed as a good neighbor and a staunch friend, whose word was a s good as his bond.
He leaves a wife, five daughters and a son, besides a host of friends to mourn his loss. His youngest son Valentine died in England during the Great War.
Rev. Bradford of Mindemoya assisted by Rev. Pelletier of Manitowaning, preached the service which was most comforting and inspiring.
The sorrowing family have the deepest symnathy (sic) of the community in their great loss.

A meeting was held at Manitowaning last Saturday evening and was addressed by W.D. Lyon Esq. in the interest of R.A. Lyon, as candidate for the Local House. At the close of the meeting it was moved by Mr W. L. Smith, seconded by Mr A. Hughson, and Resolved.
"That this meeting having heard Mr. W. D.

PROVIDENCE BAY
A Committee has been formed here to aid in securing Mr R.A. Lyon's return. Mr P. Caddell is Chairman of the Committee, and the whole section is going strong for Lyon.
There are good prospects for better times here now. The mills are running, and the farmers have their grain all sown; fall wheat looks well.
A new store will be started in a few weeks near the school-house.

Manitowaning News
The news of Mr. R.A. Lyon's death at Montreal, on the 6th last week, was received with great sorrow by almost everyone in the district, as he was a resident of the island for many years, being the owner and operator of the Michael's Bay industry in its balmy days. For many years he presented Algoma in the House at Toronto, prior to his removal to Sault Ste. Marie. Mrs. J.B. White of Manitowaning is a daughter and the sympaty of the entire community is extended to her in her bereavement.

Mr. R.A. Lyon, Registrar of Sault Ste. Marie, dropped dead in the Queens hotel at Montreal of heart disease.

Obituary, From the Story of Baw-a-ting: Being the Annals of Sault Sainte Marie, by Edward Henry Capp
Tehkummah, a history 1867-1927 by Derek Russell, page 403
Mr. Robert Adam Lyon is another of the old time citizens who have joined the great majority. Born in 1830 in the city of Glasgow, he came in early years, across the water and Canada became henceforth his home.
Mr. Lyon received his education like many of our great Canadians in the public schools of Old Ontario, the common ground upon which alike all creeds and races meet, and which institution ought to be to the nation a source of sturdy christian patriotism for the upbuilding of a united people.
In 1858 he married Sarah Moore, who, with his family, survives him. Mr. Lyon was ever an active member of the district and won Parliamentary honours at various times from 1878 to 1891, retiring in the latter year to private life. In 1902 he became unwell and decided to visit once more the land of his birth. All arrangements were made, but it was not to be. In Montreal he was overtaken by a sickness which resulted in his decease on June 4th, 1902, and thus passed away from the scene of his former activity an old and much respected man. Mr. R.a. Lyon, the Manager of the Imperial Bank in Sault Sainte Marie and President of the local Board of Trade, is the only member of the family now residing in the old town.

Letters to the editor, Manitoulin Expositor, October 7, 1987
Arduous travel for old-time Grit
To the Expositor:
In 1882, R.A. Lyon, a colourful lumberman from Manitoulin, defeated W.J. Plummer, once Indian Superintendent at Manitowaning, in a provincial election and made the then enormous Algoma riding a Liberal seat. The article below from the "Hamilton Times: I found in the "Thunder Bay Sentinel" of December 3, 1882. A century later, Ontario has just had another election and again a Liberal member will represent the Island in Toronto. Anticipating the recall of the house this autumn, I htink the Manitoulin electorate and your new member may find the article amusing, and perhaps, food for thought on nborthern programs and change.
Mr. R. A. Lyon
Of the many men who have to travel long distances in this province in order to fulfil their legislative duties probably to Mr. R.A. Lyon may be awarded the palm in that respect. His consistuency of Algoma extends nearly a thousand miles, from French river to Rat Protage on Lake of the Woods. He left his home on Michael's Bay on Manitoulin Island on Monday, the 11th inst., crossed the Georgian Bay in a small boat to a point on Cove Island, themost northern point of the land on the west shore of the bay, the distance by water being 30 miles. From this place he walked twenty-six miles, the snow being a foot and a half deep, to Wiarton, where he obtained a conveyance to take him to Owen Sound. From Owen Sound the journey by rail was an easy one, Toronto being reached safely on Thursday evening. If the bay had been frozen when Mr. Lyon crossed, it would have compelled him to travel along the north shore, skirting all the little creeks and bays and then to journey south to Parry Sound. As it is, he expectes (sic) to travel home that route.

Ancient South Shore Murder Is Still Unsolved Mystery
by W.J. Moody, Ice Lake
Many years ago Mr. Phillip Clarke and his gang were putting timber in the water at timber Bay, which is, I believe, some three miles from the village of Providence Bay. As the timber was back form the water's edge, they had to use a horse to haul it to the water.
While crossing a sand bar, the timber pulled out a man's skull. Mr. Clarke told the man driving the horse not to go there any more and with a shovel and his hands he uncovered the bones of a man who had been shot through the breast and covered up with boughs. At the time he was found he had a foot of sand or a little better over him.
His clothes were quite delayed, but his boots were in a fair state of preservation. They found three gold studs, such as were worn in the front of starched shirts in those early days.
Mr. Clarke placed the skull back on and the man measured six feet. Many people came to view the remains, including the late R.A. Lyon, M.P.P., but none could give any clue or identify the murdered man.
Mr. Lyon gave as his opinion that he might have been dead 20 years. Mr. Lyon was the first man to live on the grand Manitoulin and represent Algoma East in the provincial legislature. He was a Liberal, in those days called a Reformer.
(In the letter Mr. Moody sent with this story, he adds the following:
(There was a man who disappeared but the people thought he had gone to Toronto. Mr. Lyon said he was not so tall as six feet. Mr. Clarke said his boots had been an awfully nice pair and his clothes appeared to have been a very fine piece of cloth. I guess it will always remain a mystery as to who was murdered and who was the murdered.)

Robert Adam Lyon
Robert Adam Lyon (baptized 4 October 1829 - June 6, 1901) was a Canadian businessman and Liberal member of the Ontario Provincial Parliament from 1878 to 1884 and from 1885 to 1890.
He was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1829 and came to Halton County, Ontario in Upper Canada with his parents in 1832. With his brother William Durie Lyon, he opened a general store in Milton. In 1866, he became involved in the development of timber on Manitoulin Island. He established a settlement at Michael's Bay on the island.
In 1878, he became the MLA for Algoma in a by-election, replacing Simon James Dawson. He was re-elected in 1879 and 1883, but resigned in 1884 over allegations of irregularities during the election. In 1885, he was elected in the new riding of Algoma East. In 1888, his business went into bankruptcy and he was defeated in the election of 1890. He died in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario in 1901.

Biography of Robert A. Lyon, M.P.P.
Robert Adam Lyon, who represents the Algoma District in the Ontario Legislature, is a native of Glasgow, Scotland, having been born October 21, 1829. His father, John Lyon, was a gardener in the old country, and a farmer in this, coming to Upper Canada in 1832, settling on bush land at Esquesing, county of Halton, and cultivating the soil until his death in 1877. The mother of our subject, whose maiden name was Catharine McFarlane, died in 1856.
Mr. Lyon attended a common school until seventeen years of age, and then went into the general mercantile business at Milton, the county town, in company with his elder brother, William Durie Lyon, who represented Halton in the third Parliament of the Ontario Legislature, they trading there under the firm name of W. D. and It. A. Lyon, for seventeen years. During nine of those years our subject represented one of the wards in the village council.
About ten years ago Mr. Lyon removed to Manitoulin Island, where he has been engaged in lumbering and merchandising, having a general store, and doing a large business in both branches.
In 1878, on the resignation of Simon J. Dawson, who represented the Algoma district in the Local Parliament, Mr. Lyon was chosen by acclamation to take his place, and was re-elected by a large majority at the general election held in June 1879. He represents one of the largest ridings in the Province, the district being about 500 miles wide and 1,000 long. He has never undertaken to canvass the riding, but he is an active politician, a strong Reformer, an earnest advocate of any cause which he believes to be right, and while a resident of Milton, canvassed the riding of Halton four or five times. He has good mental faculties, and never abuses them.
Mr. Lyon has been a member of the Presbyterian church nearly thirty years, and is a man of sterling, christian qualities. In all the relations he maintains a good standing.
In 1856 he married Miss Sarah Elizabeth Moore, of Esquesing, and they have had seven children, five of them yet living.

George Dixon Dead
When it became known on Friday evening last, that Geo. Dixon Sr. had died at his residence, Gore Bay, it created little surprise as the end had been expected for some days. Mr. Dixon had not been too well for the last year, but during the last few months had been sinking slowly. Some three weeks ago his two absent daughters, Mrs. Wm. Purvis, and Mrs. Linden Thorn, came down from Selkirk and Brandon, to see him before it might be too late. As the end was apparently near, they remained with him until he passed away last Friday evening about nine o'clock.
Mr. Dixon was an Englishman by birth and when quite a young man, enlisted and spent eleven years in the British army, a greater part of this time being spent in India. He was in several battles that stand out prominent in English History. He was one of the brave men who fought their way through India under Havelock. He was in the front at the relief of Lucknow when the Scotch Lassie heard the Pilbroch, a sound so familiar to her native hills. He was with Havelock in the besieged city and remained there until reinforcements came to liberate them, as they were then on the point of starvation.
Mr. Dixon returned to England, got married and subsequently came to Canada. He lived in the County of Grey for a number of years, moving to this Island about 20 years ago. He leaves a widow, four daughters and two sons; Mrs. Wm. Purvis, Mrs. Alex Purvis, Mrs. Wm. Dinsmore, Mrs. Linden Thorn, Henry and Geo. Dixon.
He was a staunch member of the English Church, industrious and honourable and an upright man. The Town Flag hung at halfmast on Saturday out of respect to his memory. His remains were followed to the Gordon Cemetery on Sunday last by a large concourse of people who turned out in large numbers to pay their last tribute of respect to the remains of a brave old British soldier.

Obituary, uncited
Well Known REsident of Walford Passes
Came to Algoma 54 Years Ago
One of the oldest pioneers of this district passed away very suddenly at noon on Thursday, April 25, in the person of Robert J. Gamble. He had been in failing health for some time, but was able to be around & out of doors when death came.
Mrs. Gamble was born in Belfast, Ireland, on June 15, 1845, and came to Canada at the age of 16, with his parents who settled at Guelph. On June 8, 1864 he was married to Miss Mary Skippen of Guelph and formerly of England.
In 1874 Mr. and Mrs. Gamble with three small children moved to the north country, where they lived at Spanish being employed in the mill. The following year they came across to this community which later became known as Walford, and where they lived on the farm known as the Cashan farm, and of which Mr. Gamble was manager. About 1879 the family went to the Manitoulin Island and resided on a farm at Green Bay for about four years, after which they returned to Walford where Mr. Gamble took up land and made a home, which was no easy matter in those days.
(The above is taken fromt he Blind River Leader. We wonder how many of the people of this part of the Manitoulin remember Bob Gamble as he was called. We are under the impression that he lived on the town line near the "old Skippen Place", but if we had been asked we would have said that he came to the Isalnd at least three years earlier than stated in the Leader. Still it was farm more the name than the man that we were acquainted with. Ed)

The Recorder, Gore Bay, April 16, 1931
Made Trip To Spanish Mills 54 Years Ago
Mrs. Sam Hall, one of Gore Bay's most highly respected citizens has reported to us that 54 years ago she made her first trip across the ice to Spanish Mills. Leaving her home in Gordon Tp. about one o'clock she drove to Gore Bay and taking the ice at Bickell's Creek they arrived at their destination at seven o'clock in the evening. The trip was made with a horse and cutter accompanied by two other companions.
At the time Wm. Gorrell was the manager of the mill at Spanish, later he moved to the vicinity of Gore Bay taking up residence on the farm now owned and operated by Jas. Purvis & Son.
Mrs. Hall came to the Island 55 years ago from Owen Sound and has been a familiar figure in the life and progress of both the town and township. To her we extend our best wishes for continued good health and may we have the pleasure of her good citizenship for many more years.

Sudden Passing of Sheriff Jackson, submitted by Jean (Jackson) Capon. Mrs. Capon told us that Edward Jackson (1845 - 1907) was the editor-publisher of the Manitoulin Guide.
It was a great shock to the community when it was learned on Saturday that Sheriff Jackson had suddenly passed away about 4 o'clock that morning. He was in his usual health, with no premonition of his sudden call. Mrs. Jackson, who was beside him, only noticed two or three laboured breaths before all was over. Dr. Johnston was called at once, and pronounced the cause heart failure and that the change from life to death had been almost instantaneous. The funeral took place at Gordon Cemetery and was attended by the officials, the Orangemen, and a large representation of the people generally. Rev. Mr. More conducted the services at the family residence and at the cemetery until taken over by the Orange Order, of which Society the late Sheriff was a member. Mr.Jackson was in the township of Pickering, Ontario County, sixty-two years ago and when a young man came west and remained for a time in various places, finally locating at Bruce Mines. He was married there to Miss A.Coatsworth, who predeceased him some four years ago. In 1876 the family removed to Gory Bay, where he engaged in contracting, cabinet-making andfurniture business and finally took a fancy to publish a newspaper business and became proprietor of the Guide, which he continued to publish until he was appointed Sheriff in 1800. To mourn his sudden call, he leaves a large and well-known family, distinguished above the average for their ability and intergrity. The sons are Edward E., Joshnia, John W., Samuel P. and William. Joshua is proprietor of the planing mill, the others are in the merchantile line, consisting of the firm of Jackson Bros., excepting Wm. who conducts a store of his own.The daughters are Mrs. R. J. Hawkey Airdrie, Alta., Mrs. John Purvis and the Misses Maud and Ida at home.
The late Sheriff about two years ago was married to Mrs. M. McPhic Orford, and of this marriage there is one son, under a year old, both of whom survive him.
The late Sheriff Jackson will be sadly missed, and his sympathetic nature, his strict integrity, his unobtrusive and gentlemanly manner, and the kindness ever shown towards his family, his friends and the public,will long keep his memory green in the hearts of a large circle.

G. B. Abrey Dead (handwritten 1906)
Mr. G. B. Abrey, Dominion Land Surveyor, died at his residence in Toronto Junction on the morning of June 25th after an illness of a few weeks, aged sixty-eight years. The deceased was a pioneer of the Manitoulin Island. About 1865 he was employed by the Indian Department to lay out townships and after completing Sandfield, Tehkumah, Campbell and a portion of Carnarvon, he resided permanently in Little Current until 1882. He also surveyed the townships of Burpee and Mills, the town of Gore Bay, and the villages of Providence Bay, Kagawong, Michael's Bay and Manitowaning. He has also done a considerable amount of the higher class of work in the North West Territories and Northern Ontario. After the municipality of Howland was formed in about 1873, he held the position of reeve for many years, and was also Overseer of Fisheries and a Justice of the Peace. The deceased was a brother of W. R. Abrey of Gore Bay.
He was a man of sterling integrity, a kind and thoughtful citizen, and highly respected.

Long And Useful Life
Passing Away of Mr. George Brockett Abrey
Toronto Junction, June 25 - (Special) - A widely-known Canadian in the person of Mr. George Brockett Abrey, C.E., O.L.S., D.L.S., died at his home, Willoughby avenue, at 3 o'clock this mornig after an illness of about a month.
Mr. Abrey was born in Halton county sixty-eight years ago, his father being proprietor of the local flour and woolen mills. At the age of 21 he obtained a certificate as land surveyor and commenced working for the Government on Manitoulin Island, and was one of the first three white men who lived on the island.
In 1882 he moved to Toronto, and since that time had performed many contracts for surveying townships for both Provincial and Dominion Govenments. Some of this work was very arduous and dangerous. Few white men have ever been nearer the north pole than Mr. Abrey. He made the original survey of the location of the present town of Brandon, Manitoba.
Fourteen years ago he moved to Toronto Junction and took the position of Town Engineer, since which time he had done a large amount of local work.
In 1861 he was married to Eleanor Patten, daughter of the late Andrew Patten of Halton, who survives him with two daughters and one son, Mrs. Stewart Jenkins of Brunswick avenue, Toronto; Mrs. Beechamp St. John, of Sydney Australia and Mrs. George S. Abrey of Toronto Junction.

The Recorder, Gore Bay, Thursday, March 16, 1911 - Local News Items
Mr. and Mrs. Humphrey May, of Little Current, were in town on Monday. Mr. May confirms our report that he was the first white man born on the Manitoulin. This historic event took place sixty-seven years ago next Monday, at Manitowaning. So Barney Turner is not in it.

Through The Years, Vol. 1, No. 5, page 23
Humphrey Philip May
Mr. and Mrs. Philip May came to Manitowaning by sailboat from Penetanguishene in 1843. He, being a cooper by trade, was sent by the government to teach the indians how to make barrels to store and ship their fish. They settled in Manitowaning where Humphrey was born March 20, 1844.
By the age of 13, Humphrey was driving stage out of Penetanguishene. He returned to Manitowaning about 1864 to married Dorcas Jane Franklin, an orphan, who had come to Manitoulin with Rev.Jabez Sims, who married them in the Anglican Church in Manitowaning.
They moved to Little Current and first lived in a log cabin, wherethe United Church Manse now stands. Then they moved to a farm west of town on the North Channel. His parents lived across the road. Humphrey and his father worked at their trade (coopers) farming, and cutting cordwood in winter to haul to Little Current dock for the wood-burning boats calling there.
Humphrey May in the early 1870's started a sideline which became his vocation - making trips to various points with mail and passengers. Dog teams were first used, then a horse and later horses. Mail came from Perry sound then. On one trip he went to Perry Sound to take a traveller, Joshua Belcher, from Perry Sound to Sault Ste. Marie. This trip took most of the winter, via Bying Inlet, Collins Inlet, Killarney, Little Current, Gore Bay, Algoma Mills, Mississaugi and on to the Soo. They covered this 300 miles on snow shoes with a horse carrying trunks. They camped in the open when no accommodations were available.
In 1878 he started a livery stable, with saddle horses and two and four-wheel carts. At this time he had a contract for carrying mail from Little Current to Gore Bay and Meldrum Bay. Dog teams and ponies wereused in winter and sail boats in summer. He became quite a famous walker using animals to carry the load. It was 180 miles round trip in winter.
Increased livery business, first, at his home location and later hebuilt the building now occupied by Snappy Cartage in Little Current.This he passed on to his sons John and Gilbert about 1905 and became a Massey-Harris agent for a number of years.
Humphrey May had a large family consisting of six daughters and three sons - in order of age as follows: Mary Jane (Mrs. William Priddle), Elizabeth (Mrs. William Longsworth), Maggie (Mrs. David Boyter), Dorcas (Mrs. George Priddle), Nellie (Mrs. Harrison Nevills), Lucinda (Mrs. Joseph Addison), Humphrey Jr., John and Gilbert. His wife died in 1912 at Little Current. Humphrey died in Silver Water in 1933 and buried in Little Current. The last of his family to die was Gilbert (Gib), the youngest. He was in his 86th year. The oldest grandchild now living is Mrs. E. P. Sawyer (Mable Priddle) in Escanaba, Michigan. The youngest is Humphrey (Bud) May of Little Current.

The Recorder, Gore Bay, March 29, 1928
Silver Water
On Tuesday evening of last week, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Priddle entertained quite a large gathering of friends, old and young, at a progressive euchre party. The occasion was for the celebration of the 84th birthday anniversary of Mr. H. May, guest of honor. There were present more than enough guests for seven tables and the zest and enthusiasm with which the games were played, went to show that everybody was enjoying themselves. The prizes were awarded to: Miss Laura MacTavish, Mr. Harvey Hutton and for lone hands to Mr. Jack Addison. At midnight a splendid supper was served by the hostess, assisted by her daughter, Nellie, and Mrs. Geo. J. Priddle, to which all did ample justice. Later on the young people engaged in dancing for a time and taking it all around it was a most enjoyable evening.

The Recorder, Gore Bay, July 19, 1928
Family Re-Union
The home of Mrs. Jos. Addison was the scene of a very happy re-union on Sunday, July 15th.
Mr. Humphrey May, of Little Current and his six daughters and several grand children and great grand children were present.
The daughters were Mrs. Allan Merchant of Uno Park, New Ontario; Mrs. David Boyter, Little Current; Mrs. Harrison Nevills, of Sheguiandah and Mrs. Wm. Priddle, Mrs. Geo. Priddle and Mrs. Jos. Addison of Silver Water.
Others present were Mr. Harrison Nevills, Sheguiandah; Mr. and Mrs. E. P. Sawyer, Escanaba; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Merchant and infant daughter, and Mr. Ben Longworth of Uno Park, Mrs. Roy Woodhouse and baby daughter of Parry Sound, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Priddle and children of Gore Bay and the children of the three daughters residing in Silver Water.
Over thirty persons were present to celebrate this occasion which is the first time in sixteen years that the six sisters have been together.
Mr. May's three sons were unable to attend the re-union.
Mr. May is the first white man born on the Manitoulin Island and all of his children are still living.

The Recorder, Gore Bay, March 24, 1932
Humphrey May Celebrates His 88th Birthday
Humphrey May Sr., one of Manitoulin's oldest residents, clebrated his 88th birthday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Wm. Priddle, Silver Water, last week. Among those present were his sons, Gilbert and Jack of Little Current and Humphrey of Palmerston, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Priddle. John and George Priddle, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. J. Priddle, Mr. and Mrs. Humphrey Priddle and son Ross, Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Addison, Ted and Jack Addison, Master Alex May and Miss E. Pope. At this gathering four generations were represented and six of his children were present out of a family of nine.
Mr. May is enjoying good health and while not so active on his feet can still shuffle the cards for a winning game of euchre. The writer remembers some 56 years ago when Mr. May was a man to be looked for with eagerness as he was the mail carrier from Little Current to Gore Bay and later on to Meldrum Bay bringing the much welcome letters from down home and general news he picked up along the way. Sometimes he had a pony, other times dogs and many times on foot and he was a great roadster. We made a trip with him in December '81 leaving John Cook's at daylight and following a blaze through the bush to Elizabeth Bay, crossing the ice there as the channel was not frozen and following another blaze east. We had lunch at a spring in mid forest now the beautiful hom of Mr. Wm. Noakes, then on to Ellen's Bay, crossing the ice there to another trail to Campbell's Bay and across the ice to Beckerton's Corner and then on. We though we could walk some, but our guide had us dragging pretty well behind by the time we reached the little Village of Gore Bay. Next morning he was up and away to Little Current.
Mr. May is always remembered kindly by the old timers who are left and with them we join in sincere congratulations and hope he may have many more happy birthdays.
An Old Timer

Silver Water
Sunday, March 20th, was the occasion of a very happy reunion of the family and friends of Mr. Humphrey May Sr., when they assembled at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Priddle to celebrate with him the anniversary of his 88th birthday. Mr. May is well known throughout the Island and has friends who will be glad to learn that he is still hale and hearty for a man of his age, whose early life was full of activities unknown to the young men of today, and the hardships of his pioneer life were such that few men could have withstood, and yet be able to enjoy with his family at this celebration. We are pleased to say that at his gathering four generations were represented and that six of his children were present out of a famly of nine. Those who sat down with him at a fine turkey dinner were his three sons, Humphrey, John and Gilbert, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Priddle, John and George; Mr. and Mrs. George J. Priddle; Mr. and Mrs. Humphrey Priddle and Ross; Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Addison, Ted and Jack, Master Alex. and Miss E. Pope.
The only gest from off the Island was Mr. Humphrey May Jr., who came all the way from Palmerston, Ontario to be present, and because of business was unable to extend his visit, but returned home on Monday.

Newspaper article, uncited
HUMPHREY MAY, MANY CAREERS OVER 89 YEARS by Ian Gibb
Humphrey Priddle, writing about his late grandfather, Humphrey May, noted his burial on July 12, 1933 was a "fitting date for the burial of a life long Orangeman". The observation is ironic, especially in light of a recent spat in the Expositor between a Wikwemikong and a Mindemoya writer over Northern Ireland.
Humphrey May was the first native of Manitowaning, a mission set up in 1837 as an answer to Father Proulx's thriving Roman Catholic community in Wikwemikong.
Manitoulin had been chosen by two Lieutenant-Governors of Ontario, Sir Peregrine Maitland and Sir John Colburne, as a refuge for Indians driven out of Simcoe, Grey and Huron counties by white settlement. Indians did immigrate here from these areas, and more came from the United States but both Lieutenant Governors were recalled before they could establish some sort of permanent settlement.
Sir Francis Bond Head, the succeeding Lieutenant-Governor, came to the Island in 1836, and with his help, the mission to civilize the Indians was established.
This enterprize, wrote the 1933 Expositor, was unsuccessful.
"Many of the Indians of this place were Ojibways, who knew nothing but hunting and fishing, and they did not take kindly to settling down in any certain place, but preferred to roam about."
The Manitowaning Mission, like William of Orange, did not succeed in forcefully converting the Indian to WASP ways, but Manitowaning, like Ulster, became the entry point for colonialism on the island.
Although not officially open to white settlement until 1863, the Manitowaning mission doomed pristine Indian ways of life. To instruct civilized skills to the natives, the government brought in craftsmen, whose tastes and economic demands were adopted.
COOPER
Mr. and Mrs. Phillip May came to Manitowaning in 1843, from Penetanguishene. They were sent by the Indian department of the government to teach Indians how to make barrels, for storing and shipping fish.
Humphrey May was born the following March. Perhaps the demand for instructors of cooperage fell off because Humphrey May as a thirteen year old boy was driving stages out of Penetang.
By age twenty, however, he was back on Manitoulin. He workd a year for the government "Indian Agent". Next year, he married Dorcas Jane Franklin, and moved to the settlement at Little Current. He moved once again, shortly after, to what became known as the May Farm, at May's point. His father worked an adjacent farm. To supplement the farm income, father and son worked together at the cooper's trade, building barrels for a market which now included a substantial white population. During the winter, he cut and hauled wood into town for the ships that called. This wasn't his only winter trade; he also took up a sideline that eventually became his vocation; delivering mail and people.
First he used a dog team in his travels; then a horse and later a team of horses. During the 1870's all mail, and most passengers came by way of Parry Sound during the winter.
It was a long and often precarious trip, with storms and extreme cold during the deep winter, and the dangers of treacherous ice in the spring.
There is one story of Mr. May's cutter plunging into a breach in the ice. He thought he had reached the end of the line when he stood on the seat of the cutter, shouting for help, as his vehicle and the perished mare slowly sank into the North Channel. Fortunately, some residents of a nearby island heard his desperate pleas and rescued him.
One trip he made occuppied almost an entire winter. May tripped off to Parry Sound to pick up a Joshua Belcher, who wanted to go to the Soo. The trip, well over 300 miles long, was done on snowshoe, with a horse usually following with luggage. Often there was no accomodation at night beyond what shelter could be hastily erected in the open.
LIVERY STABLE
By about 1800 the island had developed to the point where there was a demand for a full time livery stable. This he established in Little Current, living there until the death of his wife, in 1912.
While his business was now mainly to rent out horses and carts, Humphrey May had the contract for the carrying of mail from Little Current to Gore Bay and Meldrum Bay. Through swamp and virgin forest he would travel, stopping in at various little niches of civilization along the way. Like most travellers, Mr. May was a welcome guest, a man reknown for his entertaining stories and amiable disposition.
He was, it is said, an "ardent card player". Grandson Humphrey Priddle recalls:
"Althought he never swore, he had an expression of his own. When he became excited in playing a close game, he would bang his fist down and exlaim, "By the ginger tea."
Maybe it was the toll of the years, or maybe it was a normal businessman's drive towards comfort, but in 1905, Humphrey May passed his business on to his sons John and Gilbert, and became an agent for Massey-Harris. This agency he held for a number of years.
RETIREMENT
After the death of his wife, Mr. May sold his Little Current residence (now occupied by granddaughter Mrs. Grenville Orr, and husband) to his son Gilbert. Another son, Jack took over the family farm, now Grandview Lodge. The end of his long (89 years) life was spent visiting his children, who were spread across the island from Little Current to Silverwater.
He was the proud patriarch of a huge family, the father of six daughters and three sons. These were, in order of age; Mary Jane (Mrs. Humphrey Priddle), Elizabeth (Mrs. William Longworth), Maggie (Mrs. David Boyter), Dorca (Mrs. Harrison Nevills), Lucinda (Mrs. Joseph Addison), Humphrey Jr., John, and Gilbert. All except John had children.
So father and grandfather Humphrey had a lot of family to visit during the latter years of his life. It appears that he never became a burden to his family; in fact he would work on his children's farms well after his formal retirement.
"Mr. May had a wealth of information few possess", wrote the Expositor at his death, "and up until the last his mind was quite fresh and he could recall happenings 60 or 70 years ago with vivid recollection."
He passed away on July 10, 1933, while at the home of his daughter, Mrs. William Priddle, in Silverwater. Hundreds attended his funeral; the church was filled to overflowing, and many stayed outside until after the service was over.
Relatives and friends from all over the island came to pay their respects to the pioneer. Small wonder they came. For after the religious ceremony they could all gather to compare anecdotes about a man who had played a role in developing the entire Manitoulin.
He was the first white man to have the island in his blood. Growing up among men who came here to develop it, he was the first to be able to call it "home."

Humphrey P. May laid to rest, large Funeral under Orange Auspices - 1844 - 1933
More than two hundred friends and relatives of the late Humphrey May paid their last respects on Wednesday afternoon when funeral services were held in Holy Trinity Anglican Church. The funeral was held auspices of Little Current Orange Lodge, members of the lodge attended the funeral in a body. Rev. E.E. Weeks Little Current, and Rev. Fuller, Silver Water, conducted the services and the church was filled to capacity many remained outside until after the service was over. Towns and municipalities all over the island were represented. Mr. May was widely known, not only to the older generation but also to the younger people many who have listened to many of his very interesting stories of pioneer life on Manitoulin seventy years ago. Living on Manitoulin Island for 89 years Mr. May had a wealth of information few possessed and up until the last his mind was clear and memory quite fresh and he could recall happenings 60 or 70 years ago with vivid recollection.
Outline of His life
Humphrey May's parents came to Manitoulin Island in a sail boat from Penetang in 1843 and settled in Manitowaning. Humphrey was born the following spring on March 20th. Little is known of his early boyhood but at the age of 13 he was driving stage out of Penetang. This no doubt formed the foundation for his future career. He came back to Manitoulin when he was about 20 and worked in the employ of the Indian agent for a time. At the age of twenty-one he married Dorcas Jane Franklin and moved to Little Current.
Living here for a short time he moved to a farm now known as the May farm at May's Point, his father who had also moved to Little Current living opposite him on the farm now occupied by Robert Stringer. Here father and son laboured together, both being coopers by trade and along with their farming we kept busy in the summer months.

Obituary, The Recorder, Gore Bay, Thursday, April 11, 1912 -
The Late John Dunlop
In the passing away of Mr. John Dunlop Sr. of Bidwell Township theIsland has lost a pioneer who spent many years in hewing out a home and transforming the forests of the early days into the well cultivated farms of the present day.
The life of the pioneer was no sinecure in the days when a bag of flour had to be carried for miles on the shoulders of the settlers, and the deceased has seen the Manitoulin transform from a wilderness or burnt lands to an up-to-date farming settlement and has taken his share of the burden. The deceased leaves a widow four sons and four daughters to mourn his death.

The Recorder, Gore Bay, Thursday, April 11, 1912
Mrs. John Dunlop Sr. of Sheguindah, desires through The Recorder to thank friends and neighbors, on behalf of herself and family, for their kindness, and especially the Orangemen who were so kind to her and her family in the hour of grief and sorrow, in the death of a husband and father. She hopes that they will all be rewarded, in the world to come, for their kindness.

Obituary, The Recorder, Gore Bay, Thursday, August 23, 1917 -
The Death of Rev. Rowland Hill
After a comparatively short illness, Rev. Rowland Hill succumbed to the effects of dropsy resulting from heart weakness, on August 6th, 1917.
Mr. Hill was born on Sept. 11th, 1837 in the township of Clarke County of Durham. There he received his public school education, and afterwards attended the grammar school at Bowmanville.
He held the position of clerk in his brother Richard's store in Mitchell, Ont. For four years, after which he attended the college at Oberlin, Ohio, and afterwards taught school fro some time in the United States.
Returning to his homeland, he taught school for a time at Motherwell, near St. Mary's Ont., doing very successful work as a teacher. While there he also took up studies in connection with Toronto University. He also taught school for a time at Listowel, Ont.
Later he attended Toronto University from which he graduated as a B. A. and later he studied divinity at Huron College, London, Ont. From that College he was ordained to the Church of England ministry in 1866.
He was stationed at Markdale, Shelburne, Maxwell and other points for four years. In 1870 he came as a missionary to the Indians of Manitoulin Island, having previously studied the Ojibeway language with Rev. Dr. O'Meara, then rector at Port Hope, Ont., and who had previously been a missionary to the Indian. In the same year, in October, he married Annie Jane Akitt who was also a native of Durham County.
Mr. Hill left the Manitoulin in Nov. 1882 but the following summer preached for a few months at Little Current. During the summer of 1870 when he commenced work, he was the only Protestant minister on the Island. He retired to his farm near Sheguiandah in 1883, and four years later came to Carnarvon to the farm on which he died.
While teaching near St. Mary's, the late Timothy Eaton then kept store in that town; and while attending the university, two of his classmates were Sir Wm. Mulock and Sir John Gibson. Mr. Hill possessed a wide range of knowledge having been an extensive reader, and possessing a memory equalled by but few; and his sympathy went out toward any who were trying to promote good in any way. He was true to his church, but entertained feelings of goodwill toward all.
Of a family of seven, six survive, namely, Mrs. Braniff and James in the West, Mrs. H. J. Pinard in New Hampshire, U S A , Mrs. P. W. Pinard at Little Current, Ont. W. Arthur at home, and Robert R at Shorncliffe Camp, England, having been some time ago wounded in action in France.
The remains were laid to rest in Mindemoya Cemetery. The bereaved widow and family have the sympathy of many friends.

One small town houses two Anglican churches
By Julie Strain
Sheguiandah-The little town of Sheguiandah, a few miles south of Little Current on Highway 6, has the unique feature of having two Anglican churches.
It all began in 1862, when Manitoulin was thrown open to white settlers. The Sheguiandah and the Sucker Creek Indian reserves were set aside for the protestant Natives. Reverend Jabez Waters Sims, one of the first missionaries to Manitoulin, moved with the Native people to Sheguiandah.
Historical documents at the Little Current-Howland Centennial Museum say that Reverend Sims immediately erected a combination church and school. However, it is not clear whether they were built on the present day sight or by Ten Mile Point, where the priest lived.
Reverend Sims had a large parish extending from Manitowaning to Killarney and from Whitefish River to Sagamuck, including Little Current and Birch Island.
According to Reverend Clifford Dee, the present day Anglican priest for the Sheguiandah, Sucker Creek and little Current area, Reverend Sims drowned in 1869 while on his way to a baptism in Killarney.
The history books state that Reverend Sims was buried in the churchyard of St. Andrew's after a large funeral. However, it is unclear whether St. Andrew's was the combination church and school or the church that is standing today. This is why it is unknown when the present day church of St. Andrew's was constructed.
Upon the death of Reverend Sims, Reverend Sims, Reverend Roland Hill came to Sheguiandah and took up Reverend Sims' parish. However, the only stayed for seven years before he went to the Mindemoya area to take up farming. Sandy McGillivary, a councilor of the Town of Little Current, said that he heard Reverend Hill left the church because "he had a falling out with the bishop."
Reverend Frederick Frost then came to Sheguiandah and it was during his time in the area that St. Peters Church is found on the right hand side of Green Bay Road just after the four corners in Sheguiandah. It was built in 1883 and Reverend Frost acted as priest for both of the churches. As well, he also travelled to Little Current to act as a missionary.
Reverend Frost was very interested in the Ojibway culture and during his time on the Island wrote a book called Sketches of Indian Life. As well, he translated a hymnary book into the Ojibway language.
It is unknown why Sheguiandah has two Anglican churches. Reverend Dee felt that it was possible that two churches were needed to accommodate the the size of the congregation. "I know there was a lot of going back and forth," he said. "The congregations did mix."
Reverend Frost's home burnt down while he was in Sheguiandah and the basement containing brick work is the only structure remaining. It can be seen by wandering to the right of St. Andrew's church. Reverend Dee said that it was at this time that the rectory was moved off the reserve and to the village of Sheguiandah.
Vivian Baxter, a member of St. Peter's congregation all her life, remembers the rectory being Jim Ferguson's present day home on Sheguiandah Bay. She recalls the first minister to live there as Reverend George Prewer and the last to be reverend Frederick Jewel.
St. Andrew's, situated in the heart of the Native Reserve and St. Peter's, situated off the highway in the village of Sheguiandah, are very similar in description. Both have a small entrance way, a bell, a working pump organ and an almost identical alter. As well, both churches host a plaque in memory of Reverend Frost's wife, and an array of photographs of the priests and congregations through the years.
The only feature in St. Andrew's that recognizes its Native congregation is a pair of hand-made Native dolls by Simon Esquimaux at the front of the church. As well, Mr. Esquimaux' paintings of churches are hanging on the walls.
Reverend Dee attributed the lack of Native symbols within the church as a part of the churches' history. St. Andrew's was built, he said, "Before Native spirituality was recognized. There was a time when any type of Native spirituality was demonic." He explained, "That's something that has changed now, at least in some parts of the church, so that there's a blending in terms of Christian work."
Mrs. Baxter said "St. Peter's unique feature is the beautiful alter and cross. She said St. Peter's is the church where she feels comfortable. "It's just kind of cosy," she explained.

It is uncertain when St. Andrew's Church, situated in the heart of the Sheguiandah Native Reserve, was built. However, it is estimated it was built around 1865 under the guidance of Reverend Jabez Sims.

St. Peter's Church, situated on the side of Green Bay Road in the Sheguiandah village, was built in 1883.

The St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, better known as Cold Springs Church, celebrated its 103 birthday this year. over 100 people from Little Current, Rockville, Honora, Green Bay and across the Island travelled to the tiny church on Highway 540 last Sunday to participate in the once a year service.
Photo
The first minister of the Cold Springs Church, Reverend Henry Rogers, motivated the farmers in the Cold Springs are to erect the tiny building for their services. The one acre plot of land was donated for $1. by Margaret Moore and the church was constructed by volunteers.

I suspect that the marriage notation may actually be in reference to David and Jane's son and his wife who are in Household #20 and are aged 24 and 17.)

David Miller Crossed The Bar, Died April 16, 1899
In 1874 Algoma District had no stronger or more enterprising resident than David Miller. Together with his four sons, David, James, John and Joseph, Manitowaning and Little Current fairly hummed under the united influence of their energetic lives, and father and sons prospered as leading merchants and steamboatsmen. The steamer Kate Miller was a lively little craft sailing between the Great Manitoulin and Owen Sound, until she disappeared under the waters of Wiarton Bay. As a magistrate David Miller held a leading position at the island, where he for years exercised chief authority. In 1881 he removed from Manitoulin Island to Sault Ste. Marie and opened a general store in the building west of Turner's Block. But in the following year the attraction exercised by the extensive public works going on at the Michigan Soo swept him into its current, and he reached that rising city in time to share in its first boom. Entering business there he prospered and grew with the increase of his surroundings, and after a few years of unbroken success he disposed of his business and retired to live in comfortable independence upon the proceeds of his thoughtful toil. In 1884 death severed the partnership with the wife of his youth who was to him in all respects help-maid. The years brought him a second wife and more prosperity, for the expansion of the city increased values of real estate and enabled him to dispose of all his lands at greatly advanced prices so that comfort, and even wealth, brightened his advancing years. But age weakened his once vigorous frame, and failing health induced him to spend his last winter in California. Four weeks ago he returned from that land of bright sun and cloudless sky, and was again seen in the city of his adoption, until two weeks ago when he was laid aside by an attack of illness which proved fatal, on Sunday, and Mr. Miller closed an active life here and passed into the eternal world at the age of 77 years. Mr. Miller was among the first subscribers to THE PIONEER at its birth in January 1875, and up to the close of life his interest in the success of this journal never flagged. We bid farewell to a warm Irish heart, and the world today is poorer by the loss of his presence. We extend kind and sincere condolence to those for whose welfare he lived and laboured so long and so faithfully.
David Miller was born March 17, 1822 in the County of Armagh, Ireland, and came with his parents to Canada in childhood. The family settled in the County of Grey, Ontario, where the subject of this notice blossomed into vigorous Canadian life. He inherited an Irishman's warm love for Orangeism and early in life identified himself with that order persistently finding to its highest degrees, in which he long held the pre-eminence after his removal to Algoma District. In religion he was an Anglican, and a staunch conservative in politics. Endowed with a merry heart, native wit, and strong self-confidence, he rose in spite of limited school education; to political influence and a successful business career.

From the Sault Ste. Marie Paper:
Another obit tells us at the age of 22 he took for his wife, Jane Bell, also from County Armagh. They had 11 children, six of whom survive their father. They are: Mrs. M.J. Stinson, Mrs. R.A. Johnson, and Mrs. George Webster of the Michigan Soo; John Miller of Marquette, Michigan, and J.B. and Joseph Miller of this town. His second wife was a Mrs. Sermon. He leaves an estate valued at $50,000. He died without having left a will.

By sending for the death certificate for David Miller I was able to obtain the actual death date. It gave his father as David Miller and his mother as unknown.

Obituary, Manitoulin Expositor, uncited
We have to record this week the death of one of the pioneer residents of Little Current, in the person of Wm. Griffiths. Mr. Griffiths came to Little Current upwards of thirty years ago when the country was little more than a wilderness. He took up his residence here and labored earnestly year after year. For several years back Mr. Griffiths has not been enjoying the best of health and his business that of butcher, caused him to be more or less exposed to the cold and wet. All winter he had been unable to be out and being very old he could not gain much in strength. About six weeks ago he took a turn for the worse and gradually sank until the end peacefully came on Sunday morning, March 27th at the residence of his daughter Mrs. Wm. McKenzie. He had far exceeded man's allotted time, being 78 years, 8 months, five days old. His funeral which was largely attended, took place on Tuesday to Mountain View Cemetery and the last sad rites were performed his rector, Rev. W. J. Eccleston. He leaves behind his wife and six children all grown up to mourn his loss. All extend their sympathy to the bereaved in their hour of sorrow.

Obituary, uncited
Wm. Rowe Passes
A pioneer of the island died on Saturday in the person of Wm. Rowe. Born in Cornwall in 1830, he came to Canada in 1847, and married Harriet Ackley (who survives) in Colborne in 1855. In 1869 they came to the island and settled on the homestead. For years Mr. Rowe drove the mail to Manitowaning, and by thrift had built up a home for the family.
Three sons and two daughters are left: Timothy at Perivale, Thomas and Nelson in Howland, Mrs. N. Runnalls of Barrie Island, and Mrs. Thos. Anderson of Howland. The funeral was largely attended on Monday, the service being read by Rev. C. Simpson. The family have the sympathy of all in their sorrow.

Photo
Now and Then
Narrated by Allan Dryburgh
In this photo of four generations, the old gentleman sitting on the left is Wm. Rowe, but better known to the older generation who have now passed on, as Paw Rowe. When speaking of Paw Rowe, he was distinguished from Wm. Rowe Sr. of the Rowe Settlement.
Paw Rowe had two sons that I remember, being Thomas and Nelson Rowe and two daughters, Mrs. Thomas Anderson and Mrs. Runnalls who is sitting with the bouquet of lilacs. In the back, standing is Oliver Runnalls, who died at an early age of 42 with pneumonia, and I gather the little girl standing in front is Clara, Mrs. Arthur Lane, of Barrie Island.
The photographer at that time was a Mr. J. L. Wismer. Another photographer who lived in Mindemoya was a Mr. Wagg. I am convinced that years sago, most of these photographers who took pictures of logging camps, travelled by horse and sleigh in winter and horse and buggy in summer.
