Over her lifetime, she was employed by the T.

Delories was also a great volunteer and participant in many organizations such as “Meals on Wheels”, the Canadian Diabetic Society, Our Lady of Fatima CWL, Spanish River Seniors, a founding member of Valley Mills Fire Department ladies auxiliary and the Riverside Seniors Group.
Delories was an avid and skillful swimmer who taught all her children to swim at Sydney River behind our home. She loved fishing all year long, especially at Mahoney’s Point, Valley Mills. She loved playing cards, knitting and driving, especially in her first car, a baby blue Grand Prix in her later years. She loved boating and would find any excuse to go out on the water as an avid outdoor enthusiast.
Delories is survived by her eight children who love her dearly, Richard, D-Anna, Robert (Lana), Charles (Kathleen) and Lena Mahoney-Petrie (Jim), all of Sydney, and Wendell (JoAnn), Edmonton, Michael (Geri), Valley Mills, River Denny’s, and Carole Buchanan, (John), Collingwood Corner. Delories was “Granny” to 12 grandchildren, Kim, Shaun, Karen, Jason, Jennifer, Annette, Todd, Amanda, Jonathan, Katy, John and Lauren. She was delighted by the birth of eight great-grandchildren, Olivia, Ryan, Sasha, Austin, Mabel, Braeden, Elsie and Archie. She is also survived by her brothers, Fred Woodill (Mary), Ben (Bingy), Ron (Joan) and sisters-in-law, Sr. Lena Mahoney and Edna Mahoney-Irving; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and countless friends.
Besides her husband, John and her parents, Delories was predeceased by her sister, Shannon MacDougall.
Delories loved her family and friends and lived life to the fullest especially in Valley Mills, River Denny’s, where her bungalow is located.
We, her family, have been very blessed to have had Delories and John as parents and role models. Mom, rest in the arms of God; we miss you and will always see you in your children and grandchildren’s faces.
We are thankful to the loving care our mother received from doctors and the nursing staff in the palliative care unit at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.

She will be remembered by all who knew her for the sparkle in her eye, outstanding homemaking skills, delectable meals, design and decorating talents and storytelling abilities.

where our loved ones
shine down

On July 12, 2012 our family lost our very special husband, father and ‘Grandfather’. He passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family after a long and courageous battle with COPD. Born on March 20, 1924, he was the son of the late Henry and Mary Jane (Kanary) Marsh. Coady loved all children and became affectionately known by the school children as the ‘Smarties’ man. There wasn't a child that passed the house or that he came upon that didn't receive a box of Smarties. He was a very kind and generous man. He often picked up the tab at a restaurant or grocery store for both friends and people he didn't know. He also enjoyed travel, prospecting for gold, pursuing new business opportunities, playing rummy, loved family gatherings and telling stories. He took special pride in his home and was often found decorating his 50 windows for all occasions throughout the year. When he couldn't do it himself, he would simply “call John over”. Coady was very strong in his Catholic faith. During WWII he served with the Royal Canadian Air Force, following which he studied at St. FX and then received an engineering degree from Technical University of Nova Scotia (Daltech). As a Mining Engineer, he spent 41 years in the coal mining industry in Canada. He began his career in 1949 with the Bras d'Or Coal Company and later with the Cape Breton Development Corporation until he retired in 1989. He published numerous technical papers and presented at various mining symposiums in Russia, Germany, USA and England. During his career he also designed and managed the construction phase of the Ocean Deeps Colliery, Miners Museum, Glace Bay. He was a lifetime member of the Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia (APENS). He was the only Maritimer to 1996 to receive the prestigious Distinguished Service Medal for contribution to the Mining Industry of Canada from the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (CIM) and the Mining Society of Nova Scotia Medal for distinguished service to the Mining Industry of Nova Scotia. He served as Vice President of CIM and President and Secretary/Treasurer of the Mining Society of Nova Scotia for over 30 years. He was Director of the Coal Task force in the preparation of Energy Plan for Nova Scotia. Coady was well known in the business community. He established and operated Otarion Hearing Centre LTD for 35 years, providing more than 20,000 hearing aids to the hearing impaired. He was also Consulting Director in the establishment of Cape Breton Hearing Health Services Ltd. He was instrumental in creating and registering the governing body of the Hearing Aid Society of Nova Scotia and the creation and incorporation of the Atlantic Canada Hearing Aid Association and remained Honorary President. He was actively involved in his community. He served on the Boards of Directors, Miner's Museum and the University College of Cape Breton, as Commanding Officer of Air Cadets (McCurdy Squadron), scout leader with Boy Scouts of Canada, as President of the Franklin Junior Hockey Team Association (NS Champs) and a valued member of St. Anne's Parish.

Marsh Emmett Marsh AND Emmett Jessome Sydney Post Record p 3 11/24/1936 R. Fraser TWO MINERS MEET DEATH ON HIGHWAY Emmett Marsh, 45, And Emmett Jessome, 23, Killed When Auto Plunges Into Ditch at Ball's Creek-- Death rode along as a fourth passenger in an automobile which left the road and plunged into a deep ditch at Ball's Creek Bridge, seven miles from Sydney, last night to snuff out the lives of two occupants and narrowly claimed a third. Reposing in Curry's morgue are the bodies of: Emmett Marsh, 45, of Mill Creek, in the Little Bras d'Or district Emmett Jessome, 23, son of County Councillor William Jessome, of Mill Creek, and nephew of Marsh. In St Rita's Hospital is Elias Jessome, 20, cousin of Emmett Jessome, also from Mill Creek, who is suffering from shock, general shaking up, and an abrasion on the back of his head. The three were en route to their homes when the fatality occurred and had left Sydney, it was learned, about 10:30 o'clock last night but the discovery of the car and its cargo of death was not made until 12:55 o'clock this morning - almost two and a half hours afterwards. Makes Discovery The overturned machine attracted the attention of a passing motorist, it is said, and he made the gruesome discovery after going over to examine the wreck. It is believed scores of cars had apparently passed the scene before that and likely noticed the ditched machine, but kept on going, dismissing the sight as "just another accident." Phones For Aid Rushing to the home of Alexander Campbell, situated nearby, the (Continued on page eleven) motorist, identity unknown, phoned Sydney for medical aid, an ambulance, and notified Mounted Police headquarters as well. Taken From Auto In the meantime, a half dozen cars and trucks came along and with the arrival of two of Curry's ambulances, and Mounted Police Constables Tilley and Apdaile, the two dead men were removed from the tilted auto and conveyed to the George street morgue. The younger Jessome was rushed by truck to the hospital where he was attended to by Dr Arthur Sutherland, who had just finished applying medical aid to another victim injured in a crackup on the Glace Bay highway, at Grand Lake. Extremely Heavy Man Extrication of the two bodies was accomplished with difficulty, due to Marsh, who weighed about 300 pounds, being slumped over Emmett Jessome who was the driver of the ill fated auto. Jessome was badly bruised about the mouth which evidently scraped across the door after the car capsized after dropping into the gulley, upon leaving the road. He was tossed forward, and crushed against the door by the heavier Marsh who was lying almost fully across him. The occupants were jolted around after the car hit the concrete culvert and bounced into the ditch, to claim the lives of two of its passengers. The car - a Ford coach - crumpled and twisted remained in the ditch for the balance of the night and was towed to a local garage today. Fails To Remember Details of the fatality are not known - and likely never will be - as there were no eye-witnesses and the survivor of the terrific crash, Elias Jessome, it is said, remembers practically nothing about what happened. He was sitting in the back seat, and was taken from the car unconscious and did not come to until shortly before taken to the hospital where he is still suffering from the effects of the accident and unaware of the fate of his two companions. Well Known Miners Both Jessome and his uncle Emmett Marsh were employed in the Toronto Mine at Little Bras d;Or and were well known in the neighboring community where the news of their tragic passing came as a distinct shock and brought expressions of profound regret and sympathy for their relatives. Marsh, was single, and is survived by two brothers, Tom and Joe; four sisters, Mrs William Jessome, mother of Emmett Jessome, Mrs Donald MacNeil, Mrs Robert Carey, and Mrs George Swan. Emmett Jessome, is survived by his parents, and a number of brothers and sisters. Elias Jessome, lives with his brothers and sisters at Mill Creek - their parents having died a few years ago. An inquest into the fatality will be held today by Dr J K MacLeod, coroner. [Sydney Post Record Thursday 10 December 1936 p 1 & 11] MARSH FAMILY MEETS SERIES OF TRAGEDIES Fate has dealt harshly with the Marsh family of Mill Creek. Late last night, an automobile plunged over a deep ditch at Balls Creek Bridge, and killed Emmett Marsh. A little more than a week ago he buried a brother, who succumbed to injuries suffered in the Toronto mine 10 years ago. It will be 13 years next January 4th that another brother lost his life by drowning in Little Bras d'Or Gut. A year after his death, the mother took ill and died. In 1925 another brother fell victim to the treacherous waters of Bras d'Or Gut. The anniversary of his death had hardly passed when the Senior Marsh died. And to climax the tragic sequence, the companion in death last night of Emmett Marsh was his sister's son, Emmett Jessome. [Sydney Post Record Thursday 10 December 1936 p 11] TWO VICTIMS OF AUTO CRASH LAID TO REST Friends Pay Final Tribute To Late Emmett Marsh and Emmett Jessome Little Bras d'Or, Dec 14 - Despite a torrential rain hundreds turned out yesterday to pay their last respects to Emmett Marsh, 45, and Emmett Jessome 23, victims of Wednesday night's auto accident at Ball's Bridge, who were laid to rest in St Joseph's cemetery. The double funeral was one of the largest and most impressive seen in this district and was attended by residents form every walk in life who journeyed by car, wagon and on foot to attend the service. The service was conducted by Rev Fr McIntyre Sunday afternoon after which the remains were interred in St Joseph's cemetery. The cortege following behind the remains of the late Mr Marsh journeyed from Mill Creek to the home of Councillor William Jessome and was joined there by another large body of residents who wended their way to the cemetery. Masses for the dead were held this morning in St Joseph's church with Rev Fr McIntyre officiating. Many mass cards, floral tributes and messages of sympathy received by the bereaved families testified to the esteem in which both deceased were held in the community and whose lives were cut off Wednesday night when their car left the highway near Ball's Bridge. Among those attending the service was Elias Jessome, 20, also from Mill Creek who escaped with lacerations to his head and hands during the accident that claimed the lives of his two companions.

Marsh Henry Marsh and Wilson Beaton Sydney Post Record p 1 & 2 5/24/1943 R. Fraser TWO MINERS VICTIMS OF TRAGEDY IN NO. 25 MINE TWO MINERS KILLED IN SUDDEN FATALITY Glace Bay, May 23 - Water, crashing through the barrier between Dominion Coal Company's No. 25 colliery and workings which have been idle for the last half century, claimed the lives of two employees of the mine Saturday afternoon and caused extensive damage to the company's newest and most modern colliery. Henry Marsh and Wilson Beaton, both of Reserve, are believed to have been killed almost instantly as the torrent of water poured in on them as they were engaged at their accustomed duties loading in a room several hundred feet from the surface. Late this afternoon the water was still rising in No. 25 Colliery and officials were doubtful as to when the pumping equipment would succeed in lowering the water level sufficiently to allow rescuers to reach the place in which the two men are believed to be located. There is no possibility that either of the men are alive and it is believed that they died without fully realizing what had occurred. Awaiting Inspection Company officials would offer no explanation of the cause of the accident and said that this could be determined only after the mine had been pumped dry and an inspection made. Plans and records of the old workings would indicate that the barrier was at least three hundred feet in thickness. Provincial mining regulations provide that a barrier must be at least 200 feet, but for safety's sake company engineers had planned to leave at least 300 feet. The place in which the two men were working Saturday was to have been driven another 40 feet, it was learned today, and in the opinion of Company engineers the remaining barrier would have been sufficient to protect the new mine. Broke Through Room Marsh and Beaton had worked together in No. 25 since January of this year and had previously been employed as miners at No. 10 Colliery in Reserve. It is believed that the water (Continued on Page Two, Col. Three) broke through in the room in which the men were working and came in with such force that they were swept to their deaths without warning. Heard Crash Joseph McLeod and William McIntyre were working in another room about 100 feet above that in which Marsh and Beaton were employed. Both these men reported later that they heard the crash as the water swept in carrying everything before it. They realized immediately that a major accident had occurred and while they suspected the noise was caused by water, they started for the sound of disturbance. They had gone only a few feet when they met the water and were obliged to rush for the surface in order to escape themselves. Thomas Mackie, a chain runner, was also on his way into the mine when he encountered the water and was forced to rush from the scene. Officials At Scene T I McColl, General Manager and W B McDonald, General Superintendent of Mines headed a group of company officials that reached the scene shortly after the accident which occurred about six o'clock. Shortly after dark last night two pumps went into operation, but their capacity was less than the volume of water rushing into the mine. A third pump was added this morning and late this afternoon a fourth pump, with a capacity of 500 gallons a minute was put into operation. Offer No Opinion Officials would offer no opinion tonight as to when the bodies of the two victims could be recovered. It is felt, however, that the water has now leveled off and the only task remaining is to pump the mine dry. This may take several days, officials say. The flood has not affected the entire area. No. 25 and a large part of the mine escaped damage. The loss, however, is said to be heavy as a lot of valuable equipment was located in the section affected by the flood. During the day hundreds of persons visited the scene, but were not permitted to approach the plant. Details of Company policemen and R.C.M. Police were on duty since shortly after the mishap keeping the curious from hampering salvage efforts. The workings from which the water is believed to have come were abandoned about fifty years ago and were never worked by the Dominion Coal Company. New Mine The new mine has been in operation for a comparatively short time. In March of 1942 it was put into production and recently the daily output averaged about 200 tons. Modern mining equipment was in use in the colliery and it is the only one of the Company's ten collieries to be equipped with electric machinery. Older mining men today expressed the opinion that the old plans and records were probably inaccurate and that the barrier was not as thick as the engineering department supposed. Freeman Jenkins, U.M.W. District President with Tom Ling, Vice-President went into the mine last night later declaring that the Union would demand a complete and thorough investigation into all phases of the occurrence. Silby Barrett, U.M.W. International representative also went into the mine and proceeded towards the section affected as far as the water would permit. 16 MEN ESCAPE AS FLOOD WATERS SURGE INTO MINE Reserve, May 23 - Reserve residents first learned of the tragic accident at No. 25 colliery Saturday when the siren at the fire station was sounded first at seven o'clock and again at 8:15. Tragic accident at No. 25 Colliery Saturday when the siren at [sic] disaster proportions, although it was generally known that few men were in the mine at that hour on Saturday. Both victims of the tragedy were widely known in Reserve where they had resided for many years. Henry Marsh, one of those who died in the rush of water had lived here for upwards of forty years and had been very active in community affairs. Wilson Beaton, a native of Leitches Creek, had lived here for almost twenty years. Unmarried, he boarded at Stewart's Hotel, here. When the accident occurred there were eighteen men in the colliery, all of whom had entered the mine at 2:30. Anthony Wrathall is manager of the colliery and when the accident occurred, Pat Walker and Paddy Hines were on duty as overmen. Working Near Slope - Most of the men were working near the slope when the water broke through which gave them an opportunity to start for the surface before the water overtook them. The escape of Thomas Mackie, chainrunner, was described at the mine today as miraculous, as he was on the way in to the section flooded when he met the water and was forced to race for the surface so fast was the water rising. Workers and officials of the company remained on the job all Saturday night and several of them were underground during the entire time. Throughout the night sandwiches and hot coffee were served the workers at the colliery office which was converted into a lunch room. Members of the Senator William McKay Chapter, I.O.D.E. provided the sandwiches while water for the coffee was carried from the Mackie residence as the water at the mine was unfit for consumption. Hot plates were set up in the colliery office to heat the coffee while the cups and other dishes were placed at the disposal of the men by Reserve Fire Department. Staff Doubled - Today the staff of salvage workers was doubled in an effort to rush the job. It was not known late tonight just how much water is in the mine and how much must be pumped before the bodies are reached. Once the mine is cleared of water officials, experienced miners and safety first men will enter the colliery to locate the two workmen who at 2:30 Saturday entered the mine in a jovial mood. Friends of Mr Beaton say that he was always happy and in a quiet manner was fond of entertaining his fellow workers. First To Arrive - Mrs W R Munroe, Post-Record correspondent here was the first woman to arrive on the scene and at nine o'clock Saturday evening the area around No. 25 presented a grim spectacle. Darkness was closing in and workers were moving about observing a silence that was gripping. The men, garbed in rubber boots, soiled work clothes and blackened faces worked tirelessly aided by lights held in place in their safety caps. In the office officials were discussing the accident in a serious manner and in this group was Phonse Marsh, son of one of the victims. The youth is an official at the mine. Two women arrived shortly afterwards. These were Mrs Alex McNeil, whose husband's father is employed at the mine and about whom the family were anxious. With her was her husband and his sister, Miss Mary McNeil. Sons of the Marsh family stood about and were consoled by Rev L B sears, of St Joseph's parish. Today relatives of Mr Beaton, the second victim, arrived here from Leitches Creek and were accompanied to the pit mouth by Mrs Agnes Stewart, at whose hotel the deceased made his home. Chief of Police Walter McDonald was soon on the scene as were members of the armed forces other relatives or former miners now home on leave. In the wash house municipal councillor William Gouthro was encountered and he discussed the accident in low serious tones. He at first feared that his brother, Diddy Gouthro, local athlete was among the trapped men. Another brother, Sam Gouthro, also works at the mine as does Councillor Gouthro himself. Colin McKinnon, manager of the Reserve Miners Consumers Co-Operative Store was contacted and supplies were secured from this source. This supplemented by sandwiches stimulated the workers who took time off only to eat a few bites and drink some coffee before continuing their work. Watchmen from Glace Bay and New Waterford collieries were among those who kept guard at the plant today so that the large crowd that assembled would not hinder the work of the

men.

He will be greatly missed as he profoundly inspired and deeply touched the hearts of those he encountered on his courageous journeys.
He is survived by his mother, Caroline Marshall Hobbs (Googoo; sisters, Rosanne (Joe Sylvester), Josephine (Chris Laporte), Laura (Wade Bowser), Virginia, Donna; and brothers, Pius (Doreen), David (Terry Lynn), Terry (Lee Marie), John, Simon (Adrianna) and Stephen.

JR is fondly adored by special friend, Jane McMillan.
Predeceased by his father the late Grand Chief of the Mi’kmaq Nation Donald Marshall Sr., sister, Donna and her husband Stephen Anthony Gould, sister, Bernice Marshall and sister Margaret Madeline in infancy.
Special thanks to niece Madelaine O’Reilly for all of the loving care she gave to her uncle during his illness and to Grandfather William Commando for his spiritual guidance and friendship.

Death is nothing at all...
I have only slipped away to the next room...
I am I and you are you...
Whatever we were to each, that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak it to me in the same way you always used.
Put no difference into your tone,
Wear no false air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effect, without the ghost of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolutely unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident.
I am but waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner.
All is well.

We are allowed to shed our body which imprisons our soul the way a cocoon encloses the future butterfly, and when the time is right we can let go of it. Then we will be free of pain, free of fears, free of worry, free as a beautiful butterfly returning home to God, which is a place where we are never alone, where we continue to grow and sing and to dance, where we are with those we loved and we are surrounded with more love than we can ever imagine.

Martin Hank (Anthony Charles) Martin Cape Breton Post 12/12/2009
Hank (Anthony Charles) Martin, New Waterford

Born in 31/03/1931 at New Waterford , Nova Scotia , Canada

With heartfelt sorrow we announce the peaceful death of Hank Martin on December 10, 2009, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, An Cala, Palliative Care Unit.
Although our hearts are broken it is with profound gratitude and thanksgiving that we return to God the soul of our beloved husband and father.
Born in New Waterford on March 31, 1931, he was the eldest child of the late Anthony and Margaret (Young) Martin.
July 31, 1951 was one of his happiest days when he married his life long love, Bernice (Bunny) Nicholson. He always said family was his greatest blessing and together his and mom’s lives were blessed with 14 children. Together we filled our home on Olive Street with an abundance of love, joy and laughter and you could always find dad and his faithful dog, Masie, in the middle of many a family reunion.
Dad is survived by 12 of his children, Rick (Pauline), Tony (Suzanne), Sharon (Brian) MacDougall, Mary (Jim), Lorrie (Leroy) Hodder, Ronnie (Gail), Susie (Tim) Head, Margie Marsh, Wanda Doyle, Lynn (Derrick) Fitzgerald, Jamie (Heather), and his baby girl, Kelly.
He was fondly known as poppy to his 38 grandchildren, Cara, Laura, Aaron, Meghan, Lauren, Kathie Ann, Chrissy, Marc, Angela, Shelley, Mallory, Valerie, Suzanne, Corey, Martin, Brittany, John Todd, Mitchell, Brendan, Paul, Joshua, Frances, Rachael, Bethany, Nicky, Nadine, Tim, Stephen, Stephanie, Savannah, Tony, Daniel, Artie, Samantha, Kaleigh, Connor, Hope and Destin. He was lovingly known as big poppy to his 10 great-grandchildren, Angus, Nailah, Malika, Hailey, Kristopher, Alex, Brittany, Madison, Nicole, and Callie. He is also survived by his loving sisters, Betty Baldwin, Doreen (Chris) Kelly, Mary Durham, Bernice (Mary Ann) Martin and his special little brother and friend Mikey (Janice). Also surviving him is his son-in-law Ash Jaffer and his sister-in-law Bette Martin and many special nieces and nephews, two of whom brought many moments of joy to him namely Carrie and Clarency (Cheryl). He is also survived by a very special family friend, Sharon (Burly).
Our husband and father was a man of tremendous faith who believed in the goodness of mankind and as a result committed his life work to the service of others through his kinship with Bill W. He was a man of profound wisdom who was not only a mentor and confident to us his family but to many, many others (you know who you are). Hank spent 40 years of his life as a miner with the last 10 as the manager of Lingan Mine. He was also an active member of several mine rescue teams.
After retirement he reluctantly took up the game of golf which became one of his greatest passions because it gave him another opportunity to embrace a whole new circle of friends.
From the time dad was a young man he enjoyed playing sports, especially baseball and hockey. He was a lifelong faithful supporter of the Toronto Maple Leafs (Go Leafs Go!) and locally you could always hear from Section 21, Row D, Seat 6 the heartfelt support of one the Screaming Eagles biggest fans.
Although Hank’s life was filled with many rich blessings he lived with a deep sorrow over the death of two of his loving children David (April, 2002), and Judy (July, 2009). Both of these events left a tremendous emptiness in all of our lives. He was also predeceased by his brother, Willie (January, 2007); two sisters in infancy, Margaret and Bridget and by his in-laws, Stella (1986) and Rory (1974).
Visitation will take place at the V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith St., New Waterford on Saturday, Dec. 12 from 7–9 p.m. and Sunday, December 13 from 2–4 and 7-9 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will take place on Monday, Dec. 14 at 11 a.m. at the Parish Church of St. Leonard, Mount Carmel Avenue, New Waterford, with Fr. Paul MacNeil officiating. A time of fellowship will follow at Saint Agnes Parish Hall, Convent Street, New Waterford. A private family committal service will take place at St. Agnes Cemetery.
We sincerely thank the wonderful people of An Cala for their compassion and support and as an expression of sympathy we request a donation in dad’s memory to this very special worthwhile and necessary facility.
Online condolences can be sent to www.vjmcgillivray.ca.
“God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.”
Eternal rest grant unto him. Welcome home good and faithful servant.
“We’ll love you forever,
We’ll like you for always,
As long as we’re living
Our Daddy you’ll be.”

Martin Theodosia Ross Martin St. John's Daily News 3/29/1922 Bill Cook The Events for 1922 were transcribed by Chris Shelley with the help of John Baird. Reprinted courtesy of Robinson-Blackmore Printing and Publishing Mrs. Thomas MARTIN, Theodosia ROSS, daughter of the late Joseph ROSS, was born in the beautiful Margaree Valley, Cape Breton, just 56 years ago and came with her parents as a young girl in her teens to St. John's. Here her life has been spent. There are very few of us whose names will live in the annals of fame, but all of us may live so as to enter into that eternal life which endures when fame is at the end. There was much of this spirit in Mrs. MARTIN, for eight years she was evangelistic superintendent of the W.C. T. U. and was responsible for a service every third Sunday at the Penitentiary. There she was particularly interested in the young women with loving care she followed their devious paths all over the city finding homes for them, collecting funds to forward them to their homes and in many ways blessing them. As a nurse, her ministrations will be gratefully remembered in scores of homes. When the hand of disease was laid on her last summer and all that the skill of physicians could do was not able to stay its progress, hers was still a life of absolute trust. Of her spirit, the words of Bathurst's fine hymn were emphatically true. That will not murmur nor complain Beneath the chastening rod But in the hour of grief or pain Can lean upon god A faith that keeps the narrow way Till life's last spark is fled. And, with a pure and Heavenly ray Lights up a dying bed.

Matheson Alexander Matheson Sydney Post Record p 3 4/16/1945 R. Fraser Alexander Matheson, a well known and life long resident of Big Harbor, Victoria County, died at his home on March 30. He was born at Big Harbor 75 years ago, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Murdock Matheson, and was widely known by the travelling public having been ferryman for years at Ross’ Ferry, succeeding the late Philip Fraser. In the early days as now two scows were in use at the ferry. “Big Alex”, as the deceased was familiarly known, operated the scow on the Harbor side, while the late Angus Ross was ferryman on the Boularderie side. The original scows were propelled by oars or driven by sail if wind conditions were favorable, and two teams could be carried at one time. The late Premier Murray was the first to have his car ferried on the original scows, an achievement of which both the Premier and the ferryman were proud. As traffic grew with the improvement of highways, the local government furnished a motorboat which towed flat scows which carried four cars at one time. With further improvement of the highways “Big Alex” saw Ross’ Ferry becoming more prosperous. In his declining days he rejoiced to see the convenience of the present time at Ross’ Ferry. Complaints are occasionally heard today of delays and inconveniences at the ferry but not so in the primitive days. Even when compelled to make a forced landing on a beach a mile away from the dock, then having to wade in the water from the scow to the shore, then went his way as best as he could from the shore to the road it never occurred to anyone to register a protest, the reason being the sweat and toil of a line man tugging at a pair of heavy oars with a team aboard and wind and tide against him. No ferryman was held in admiration for trojon service cheerfully rendered under adverse conditions. “Big Alex” was a ferryman highly esteemed. Besides his wife the deceased is survived by nine sons and one daughter, the sons are: Henry on the Ross Ferry boats; Murdock and Alfred with the Canadian Army overseas, Donald at South Haven and John and Lloyd in the old home at Big Harbor. [6 sons given] The daughters, Mrs. McAulay who resides at Port Morien. Two sisters also survive, Mrs. Robert Luck and Mrs. Daniel MacLeod in the United States. The collection of floral pieces was large and beautiful. The funeral took place April 2, from the family residence. Rev. James Fraser, Whycocomagh, a life long friend of the family conducted the services in the presence of a large number of people. The long procession of cars proceeded to the new cemetery at South Haven where interment was made.

Matheson Duncan A Matheson
12/17/1936 R. Fraser DUNCAN MATHESON RETIRED MERCHANT PASSES AWAY Duncan A Matheson, for 63 years Provincetown’s leading merchant, passed away on December 10, at Jamaica Plain, after an illness of about two weeks. He was in his 89th year. About a year ago he retired from active business and at that time was the oldest business man on the lower Cape. The story of Mr. Matheson’s life is a success story if ever there was one. Briefly to recount it here, should give encouragement to those faced with similar problems. Born February 8, 1848 in Boulandarie, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Duncan Alexander Matheson was the son of Donald and Flora Matheson of Lochalsh, Rosshire, Scotland. The Matheson is one of the richest in Scottish history and includes within it the royal blood of kings. His parents were among the early pioneers and he grew up in the midst of great hardships. Others of his family left Cape Breton, after building their own ship and sailed around the world to found a colony in New Zealand. Quite naturally this young Scotch lad had in his blood the urge to pioneer. Leaving the farm at a tender age, he became an apprentice in the shoemaker’s trade and gave three years of his life in learning the trade. In those days shoes were made completely by hand and he went about from house to house, sometimes remaining for more than a week, making shoes for the entire family. His start was in shoes and all his life they were his hobby. He was considered one of the country’s leading authorities on the subject. In after years, honored by membership in the National Shoe Retailers Association, Massachusetts Shoe Retailers Association, and Boston Boot and Shoe Club, he was found to be the only man living in America who has actually made shoes entirely by hand. Seeking his fortune he came to the United States in 1872 and settled in Provincetown, where he opened a little cobbler shop on the site of the present Town Hall. He was then 24. All his life he was the entrepreneur. Large or small his business was his own and operated as a proprietorship. Often he told his family he had worked only half a day for an employer in his 64 years in America. He wanted always to be on his own. In 1872 Provincetown was at its height and over 150 “Grand Bankers” sailed from this port. Ere long the young Scotchman turned his attention to these and within a few years he was engaged in outfitting as many as 70 of these in one year. He bought the old post office which had originally been the school house on Long Point, and was erected there in 1846. This structure was floated across the harbor and today the cupola on the Matheson building remains as a reminder of its original usage. Branching out he engaged in other lines until some years later he operated the largest department store on Cape Cod. Until his retirement last January, he was constantly trying to enlarge. In later years his optimism was greater than business conditions warranted. He maintained his ideal of service to the community even at financial loss to himself. Only in his very last years did he become fully cognizant of changed conditions here and ultimately decide to retire. Despite educational handicaps he took a keen interest in not only national affairs. He was widely read and delighted to spend hours discussing the news with his grandson. Devoutly religious, he was long a member of The Church of The Pilgrims where he served as deacon. In his later years he saw most clearly the need for tolerance. In his charities as in his friendships he loved all men who were doing good whether Protestant, Catholic or Jew. He was our grand old man, known and beloved by all. He will be sorely missed in this community, for no one can take his place. In the disappearance from Commercial street of that sturdy figure walking daily back and forth to business, many have been heard to remark, “He was the best friend I ever had.” Wherever he walked the children flocked about him. He loved them all and had always a cheery word for them. Their elders remembered his kindliness in their own childhood, for Mr. Matheson has several generations grow up. Genial, kindly and generous he could be depended upon to support any movement which he believed would contribute to the progress and betterment of mankind. Most fortunate indeed were those privileged to know him intimately. Never will they forget the charm of his inspired personality, the wealth of stories he told so well, his surpassingly keen sense of humor, but above all else, the beauty of his philosophy of life, expressed in the tolerance which he taught and practised. King Hiram’s Lodge of which Mr. Matheson was the oldest member, attended in a body and performed the ritual of the order which Mr. Matheson loved. He was also a member of Joseph Warren Chapter, Royal Arch Masons, and Marine Lodge, I.O.O.F. whose delegation attended. The soloist, Mrs. Jean Wood Lynch of Boston, sang three numbers in her own inimitable way, a source of inspiration and comfort to all in attendance. The first, “O, Love that Wilt Not Let Me Go,” was written by George Matheson, a cousin of the deceased. Burial was in the family lot in Hamilton cemetery here. He is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Benjamin Kelley, a grandson, Donald M. Branch, both of Provincetown, and two brothers, Capt. John A. Matheson of Anacortes, Washington, and Alexander Matheson of Whitman, M[tear]. [scanned by Joyce Coleman and sent to R Fraser 3 April 2005]


Matheson Duncan Matheson The Advocate : Provincetown, Mass 12/18/1913 Joyce Coleman After an illness of only three days Duncan Matheson, master mariner and shop keeper in turn, died at 3:30 A.M., Friday last, aged 84 years, 1 month and 11 days. Death was caused by lobular pneumonia. The deceased was the son of John and Catherine Matheson and was born in Grand River, C.B., where he lived in childhood. He came to the States at the age of seven- teen years ( two years after the death of his father ) and made his first fishing trip from a Massachusetts port that season, sailing from Beverly, it is said. The following year found him engaged in the same fishery, but sailing out of Provincetown, and from that time until the close of his life he continued a resident of this town. We have heard it stated that he was the second man of Nova Scotian birth to make home in Provincetown. It is known that he came here about the year 1847 and that for a period of forty years thereafter made annual voyage to the banks of Newfoundland after cod during the summer months, passing the winter months on vessels engaged in foreign and coasting trade. He became master at a comparatively early age and thereafter commanded some of the finest vessels of the Grand Banks fleet fitted at this port. Of Grand Banks Salt Cod fishermen he commanded schooners B.F.Sparks; Charles H. Hodgden,Nellie Swift,Leon S. Swift ( the latter craft was built for captaincy ), and others and was for years recognized as one of the most successful masters sailing in that fishery out of Provincetown. Sailing in June one year early in the 80s he brought his vessel , the Leon S. Swift , into port, with a full fare of salted cod under hatches, in the phenomenally quick time of exactly two months. The decadence of the Grand Banks codfishery, about 1889, occasioned his retirement from a work in which he had given service for 50 consecutive seasons, but no interruption of his activities . Immediately he engaged in the coasting trade, sailing thereafter for a number of years as a transient master on vessels whose regular skippers desired, or were obliged, to stay ashore for a while, and his employment along this line was fairly steady. Twice during this period of sea-going he experienced great hardship , his vessels : Edith McIntyre and Annie Amsden receiving heavy pummeling from the gales. While he was master of the McIntyre, bound from Baracoa to Philadelphia with cocoanuts, in August, 1893, that craft was overwhelmed and nearly destroyed by a hurricane encountered off Cape Hatteras. One sea that over-rode the schooner carried away both masts and swept the deck clean of all its furnishings, nothing remaining after its passage, except the fore-staysail boom. Upon the subsidence of that hurricane the 64-year-old skipper found himself in charge of a sheer hulk destitute of provisions and small boat and with one man of his crew dying of injuries sustained during the height of the storm. Towed by a tramp steamer that providentially appeared a day or two after the wreck , the McIntyre was brought northward for a while, when the steamer captain announced his inability to longer hold the wrecked vessel , but offered to take off her crew. Capt. Matheson refused to leave his vessel. He asked for the loan, or gift of a yawl, with which to effect escape from his wrecked vessel in the event of her sinking , and, his request being granted, remained with his men , on a dismasted hull , far from land, waiting for aid from some quarter. His pluck and patience were rewarded by the coming of another craft that succeeded in bringing him and his vessel in tow to Boston some time later. About ten years ago the veteran sea captain ended his ocean voyaging. From that time until the day of his prostration by the illness that ended a life remarkable for its industry, he was busily engaged at his little tobacco and candy shop at the town's center. For many years Capt. Matheson's acquaintances have marvelled at his virility. He seemed wondrously immune to the ravages of time. Fresh colored , unwrinkled, possessed of a shock of curly hair, whose mass revealed scarcely a silver thread , and retaining in large measure the agility of his early years , his toughened physique enabled him at the age of 84 to perform work that would tire fifty per cent of fifty- year-old men. He was easily the youngest-looking 84-year-old man Provincetown has known , and his mind was as clear, his memory as retentive as a half century ago. Duncan Matheson, was charitable and loyal to his friends and convictions. His friends were many. Funeral services over his remains were held at 2 p.m.on Sunday last at the home of his son , Capt. John A. Matheson. A large company , including a big delegation from King Hiram's Lodge , A.F.A.M., of which the deceased was a member, attended

Fraser MACKAY MATHESON IS LAID AT REST IN WHYCOCOMAGH North Sydney, Aug 5 - Residents of this town and Cape Breton in general will learn with profound regret the passing of MacKay Matheson, 86, well known merchant of Whycocomagh whose death occurred on Monday. Born at Whycocomagh the deceased started his business career with the late J W Ingraham of this town and later with Jacob Hart of Whycocomagh. For many years he conducted a thriving general store at Whycocomagh until the time of his passing. Honest and fair in all his dealings with the public the deceased commanded the highest esteem of all who knew him. About a year ago owing to ill health, he was obliged to retire from active business and on Monday his passing following a heart attack caused widespread regret among his relatives and wide circle of friends. Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon from the family home and Stewart United church of which he was a valued member. The service was very largely attended and was conducted by Rev James Fraser, pastor of Stewart United church and a close friend of the deceased. Rev Mr Fraser was assisted by Rev A D MacKinnon of Little Narrows, and Rev D J Morrison, Hampden, P.E.I., a former pastor of the Parish. Interment was made in Stewartvale [sic] cemetery where impressive Masonic funeral ritual was carried out by members of the Order. The wealth of floral offerings banked about the casket, the many cards and messages of sympathy received by the family testified in a small manner the esteem in which the deceased was held in Whycocomagh and environs. The late Mr Matheson leaves to survive one daughter, Mrs Frank Standfield, of Truro, who with Mr Standfield, attended the obsequies. His wife predeceased him several years ago.
