McAulay Lena McAulay
31/12/1749 R. Fraser Obituary On the 11th inst. The death occurred at Sydney Mines of Miss Lena McAulay waitress at Coronation Hotel. The demise of the deceased, who until a few days ago was the very picture of health came as a shock to her friends and acquaintances. All that medical skill could do was done – being attended by five physicians -- but to no avail. The home at Boularderie Centre, twenty miles away, was notified by fire[sic] and three hours later a brother and the tender mother arrived; but alas, too late. The case and circumstances has a tone of sadness in it and is touchingly referred to by those who were even slightly acquainted with the deceased. The remains were taken to Boularderie Monday for burial. The proprietor of the Coronation Mr. Kilpatrick, placed all his teams at the disposal of the boarders who remained from work and followed the funeral to Little Bras d’Or. The deceased was twenty-two years of age and was very highly esteemed. Much sympathy is felt for the bereaved family. Com.

McAulay Daughters McAulay North Sydney Herald 31/03/1896 R. Fraser DOUBLE BEREAVEMENT - In last issue the Herald recorded the death of a [tear] year old daughter of Mr and Mrs James McAulay, of Man-o’-War Point, Boularderie, whose death occurred the 9th inst. Her funeral took place on Wednesday. On Thursday death again visited the family and the bereaved parents were called upon to mourn the loss of another daughter, a young woman about 29 years of age. She was buried on Saturday and was followed to her last resting place by the friends and neighbors of the doubly bereaved family. Death is ever sad, but in a case of this kind, when two members of the same family are taken off within a few days of each other, it is rendered doubly so. Mr and Mrs McAulay have the heartfelt sympathy of all their friends in their great bereavement. [North Sydney Herald Undated clipping][Mar 1896] 09/03/1896

McLennan Hector McLennan North Sydney Herald 05/03/1896 R. Fraser A young man named Hector McLennan, son of Mr Donald McLennan, of Backlands, Boularderie, returned home in ill health a few months ago from Montana, and his death occurred the 5th inst. The deceased worked for some time in the silver smelting works in Montana. This work is so injurious to health that very few people can stand it for any length of time. Some idea of the deadly effects of the smelting work may be learned from the fact that 19 other workmen who were employed with young McLennan have died within the past few years. Every one of 20 men who worked with Mr McLennan are now dead. The inhaling of dust, which settles on the lungs notwithstanding the great precautions taken by workmen to prevent it, soon causes death.

McNeil Janet McNeil The Casket edition 26 page 2 10/07/1890 Maureen McNeil ( Not C.B.Directly, a lot of history in it. Janet McNeil's brother John Brown McNeil II settled in Richmond Co- River Tillard.) Janet McNeil daughter of John McNeil (Brown) and Mary Grant and widow of the late Angus McDonald (Malcolm) died at the rear of the Cove on the 2nd of July. The deceased was a woman of strong and sterling character. Altough she lived over one hundred years, she was never really sick until the end came. The only failure of her faculties was a slight deafness that crept upon her during the last years of her life, but strange to say she recovered her hearing, during the last few days of her life. She raised a family of seven boys and seven girls who are today with their descendants widely scattered over Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the United States. On the 4th of July her remains were brought to the parish church, Arisaig, where a requiem Mass was song for the repose of her soul. In the absence of an ordinary choir, Miss Maggie McAdam and Miss Maggie McLean sang the various parts of the service with remarkable sweetness and expression. The Pie Jesus was touching rendered. The Tantum Ergo sung to the plaintive air of The Last Rose of Summer whether warranted by the Robrie or not, (it is not commendable for one to publish one’s achievements in Contravention of the Robrica) was under the circumstance quite appropiate. She was indeed the last of our parish of the noble race that raised the first smoke over their log huts in the primeval forest of our country. The deceased was born at the Cove in June of 1790 and was consequently in the 101st year of her age. It was but 14 years before that the first white settlers settled at Town Point near the present town of Antigonish in 1776, as the records testify as being the date of the first settlement of Antigonish. About the same date one of the two families pitched their tents in Arisaig as what is known now as the Glebe Farm. A few years afterwards two families John McNeil (Brown) and John McNeil (Breac) penetrated the forest and raised smoke in the fine locality now known as Malignant Cove. The subject of our notice was the second white girl born at the Cove. At the time of her birth from the Cove to Arigaig, there were none but the two families already named. A protestant family by the name of Cameron predeced the McNeils in the cove, but o.n the advent of the two Papist families, Cameron fearing the too close proximity of the papist as a contagion, pulled up his stakes and left the place. I record the fact as illustrative of the spirit of the times. The teaching of Knox, of the Westminister Confession, and of Bunyan had inoculated the minds of Protestants with fearful notions about Catholics as the spiritual subjects of Antichrist. What a wonderful change in that respect has the century brought about. The 18th century was indeed an iron age for the Catholics of the world. Dark and lowering was the outlook for Catholics in the Highland of Scotland, about one hundred years ago. How different is the Scotland of today from the dark period when great Bishop Hays wandered up and down the country about his weary work, licker a thief than a bishop a quaint writer of the time described him. In false liberality about religion I find no faith; hatred of hereay is one of the virtues of the saints. I have often pondered with satisfaction how the fierce bigotry of the past has subsided within my own recollection. Coming to this country and in many instances driven away from their own misty shores and ancestral glens, by persecuting spirit of worthless upstarts, our nobler and brave fathers wisely clung together in the land of their exile. As a notable result of this I may mention,that there is not today a single protestant family within the bounds of her parish of Arisaig - a state of things somewhat rare at least in our country. The original home and habitat of the McNeils of the Cove was the Isle of Barra on the west coast of Scotland. I have always heard of the Barra men spoken of as being noted for their faithful adherance to the faith of their fathers and my own experience seems to confirm the tradition. Their immediate occasion of coming to this country is thus told. When the American War of Independence was in full blast, England sent her recuiting sergents to the Western Isles. The eighty second regiment was then raised in Barra and was largely composed of McNeils. An elder brother was drafted, but John being in his twenty-second year of his age, offered himself as a substituate and was accepted. In the Army he was called John McNeil (Brown) as a distinction from John McNeil, (Breac), John McNeil (Ban) and John McNeil (Black) etc. names so numerous in the regiment. In the regiment John McNeil (Brown) came to the United States. At the close of the war, the regiment came down to Halifax and was disbanded, each soldier being presented with a document entitling him to 500 acres of crown land. Some of them went to Canada, while others moved eastward to the county of Pictou. Our Hero soujourned for some time at the middle river where he formed an acquaintance of Mary Grant . After he made an opening in the forest and raised his shanty at the Cove, John brought Mary to Arisaig where in the presence of the late Rev. Alexander McDonald they were united in the indisolvable bonds of matrimony. This John McNeil (Brown) and Mary Grant were the parents of Janet McNeil whose remains were committed to mother earth on last Friday. Arisaig SA

McVicar Donald McVicar Halifax Citizen 14/06/1866 Lark Szick Mysterious Death. -- A correspondent of the Cape Breton News says: -- On Saturday the 2nd of June, the body of Donald McVicar, who had been missing for over three months, was found at the wharf of the Gowrie Mines. An inquest was held before Dr. Kirkwood, Coroner, and after a very careful investigation, the Jury returned a verdict of Found Drowned, but owing to the decomposed state of the body, could not say in what manner the deceased came to his death, but at the same time from the evidence adduced that he must have met with foul play. Strange to say he was connected with the much talked of Zero. The last that was seen or heard of McVicar was going on board of the Zero, accompanied by two of her crew. How he came to his untimely end will as a matter of course remains a Mystery. 02/06/1866

McDonald Donald McDonald Sydney Record p 10 7/25/1922 R. Fraser CAPE BRETON MAN OF ROMANTIC CAREER IS BURIED AT VANCOUVER The funeral of Donald McDonald formerly of Little Bras d’Or, took place at Vancouver, where he had lived for many years, on July 8th. The late Mr. McDonald was a son of Murdock McDonald, and a nephew of Senator William Ross, with whom he clerked at St. Ann’s for years. When the British Government called to their assistance a large contingent of Canadian boatmen to go up the River Nile to relieve General Gordon, Donald McDonald joined the expedition at Sydney, taking passage in the ‘Ocean King’ to the scene of action. Being an expert boatman he was given charge of a barge, and did great service to the expedition. On the way home Colonel Kennedy, commander of the Canadians, developed smallpox, and Mr. McDonald was the only one in the warship who would volunteer to act as nurse attending the commander faithfully until Colonel Kennedy died. He then developed that disease himself, and was placed in a floating hospital on the river Thames. Afterwards the nurse who attended him, Miss Belle Ferguson, of Jersey, came out to this country and became his wife. The deceased was in his 80th year, a genion[sic] companion and a great favorite with many acquaintances.

McDonald Kenneth McDonald The Sydney Post 9/16/1924 Maureen McNeil McDonald Died at the Hands of McLeod, Finding of Jury -- Inquest held at Cape North Saturday - Burial of Kenneth McDonald took place Sunday at Which Whole Countryside Turned out to Pay Last Tribute - Dramatic Scene. North Sydney - September 15 - A verdict against Murdock E. McLeod was formed by the coroner's jury at the inquest held at Cape North on Saturday over the body of Kenneth McDonald, who died on Thursday morning if unjuries received at a dance at Dingwall Aug.23. McDonald had his skull and brain penetrated by a blow from a piece of iron. MacLeod is alleged to be the slayer. There is no further information this morning from provincial officier W. Lammond and Amos Martinm who are now in North Victoria seeking MacLeod on a charge of murder. They had not located their man up to noon today and relatives of McDonald expressed the opinion that time is being lost in seeking the accused murderer in the district. The burial of Kenneth McDonald took place yesterday at Cape North Centre within a stone's throw of the house of his cousin Neil A. McDonald, in which he died, and practically the whole countryside gathered to pay a last tribute to the young man who had gone overseas with the Canadian Army as a mere boy and came back to enjoy the comforts of his home for a while and then die by the hand of a once friend and neighbor. The little village of Cape North Centre, the highest point on the road laid out on a small flat between Dingwall and Bay St. Lawrence and the little knot of villagers who gathered at the Presbyterian Church and burial ground watched as the coming of the mourning communities for in every little settlement either the victim or the assilant have relatives and friends. Away to the west, eight hundred feet below stretches Aspy Bay; from the east comes the road that winds in a corkscrew curve up the hillside from Neil's Harbour to Dingwall and then from the house of Allan MacPherson, a mile and a half away climbs in a straight ascent to the church. For hours the villagers watched the gathering of the throng as they came into sight, away on the visible curves going into Dingwall or on the last long stretch to the village. Hundreds of men and women joined in the burial service and of them all the outstanding figures were Archie McDonald, father of the murdered man and Councillor MacLeod, father of the lad being sought for the crime. The service was said by Rev. Mr. Downey, minister of the church on that sumit when the grandeur of God visible for miles clothed in the ripening crops is coming to its harvest and added inspiration to the service which teaches the sowing of the natural body and the coming of the resurrection of the dead.

McKenzie William McKenzie Sydney Record p 1 6/23/1904 R. Fraser DROWNING OF WM. M’KENZIE Second fatality Within a Week at Steel Company’s Dam. CAUSE OF ACCIDENT Inquest Held Yesterday Evening Verdict of Accidental Death Rendered An inquest was held last evening over the remains of William McKenzie, the young man who was drowned at the steel company’s dam at Sydney River yesterday afternoon, particulars of which were given in the Record’s second edition yesterday. The verdict returned was as follows: That the deceased William McKenzie came to his death by drowning in the dam of the Dominion Iron & Steel company at Sydney River. His death was accidental. After the inquest the young man’s body was taken to the home of his parents on Argyle street. Young McKenzie, who was 19 years old last April, came to his death by falling from the bridge which spans the dam at Sydney River into the deep water below the dam. During his fall he struck head first on an apron which projects out with an easy slant about ten feet from the bridge. From this apron he rolled into the rushing waters of the river and before aid could reach his apparently unconscious form he was drowned. McKenzie was fishing gasperaux at the time he fell from the bridge and a man who was standing near him at the same time placed the end of a fishing rod close to his head when he came to the surface for the last time but he made no apparent effort to grasp it. This would lead to the belief that he was stunned as a result of his striking the apron on his head. Shortly after the accident a gasoline launch from Sydney arrived at the scene and the occupants immediately started to grapple for the body. They recovered it in half an hour just where the young man was seen to go down for the last time. The body was taken ashore, where it was left until viewed by the coroner at 6 o’clock when it was taken to A. J. Beaton’s undertaking rooms in Sydney where the inquest was held. The boy’s father and eldest brother arrived on the scene just after the body was recovered, and the scene which took place as the father knelt over the dead body of his beloved son was a very touching one. Young McKenzie was well liked by his friends and acquaintances, all of whom express their sorrow to his parents in their sad bereavement. The funeral of the late Willie McKenzie will leave his father’s residence on Argyle street at 6:30 tomorrow morning in time to connect with the first express.

McRae R. D. McRae Harbor Grace Standard and Conception Bay Advertiser 7/4/1913 R. Fraser R D MCRAE, ESQ, J.P. - It is with deep regret we chronicle today the death of our fellow citizen, R D McRae, Esq., senior partner of the firm of Messrs. R.D. McRae & Sons, which sad event took place on Sunday morning last. Mr McRae had been in failing health to some extent for several years, the past three or four especially; but the sudden attack of paralysis three weeks ago from which he never perceptibly rallied came as a more or less shock to his family, friends and the community. The funeral took place on Tuesday last, the brethren of Lodge Harbor Grace, F. & A. M., of which he was one of the oldest members, besides a large number of sympathising citizens followed his remains to their last resting place in the C. of E. cemetery, the Revs. F Smart and C M Sticklings performing the last offices. Mr McRae was of Scotch parentage, a native of Boularderie, Cape Breton, and was in his 67th year. He came to this country, a lad of 14 years, and entered the service of Mr James S Rutherford of St. John´s, Merchant where he remained three years. He then came to Harbor Grace, and became a clerk with Messrs. Rutherford Brothers here. Two years or so after he entered the employ of Messrs. Punton & Munn (afterwards John Munn & Co.) with whom he remained for over 30 years. His great energy and his business capacity here found scope for their exercise, and his experience as the agent of the firm at different stations on the Labrador, at Grady chiefly, stood him in good stead, so that when after the Crash of 1894 and after four years of partnership in the fishery supply and export business with Messrs Dugald and A G Munn, Grady and vicinity became the scene of his activities, he built up there the very prosperous and highly remunerative fish business that the many well wishers of his sons, - who have been his partners for several years past and actively engaged in its management - trust may be attended with the same signal success as has hitherto distinguished it. The extensive Harbor Grace premises of the firm on the historic Beach were acquired a few years later. Mr McRae was a son of the late John McRae one of the good old Hielan´ stock, a native of Applecross, Rosshire, Scotland, who with his wife also a McRae, and his eldest children came out close on seventy years ago, to Cape Breton, as did many of their compatriots from time to time to found there a new Highland Scotland, more Gaelic than old Scotland itself. They settled at Boularderie where a year or two after their arrival, their son Roderick was born. There still lives on the family farm his eldest brother Donald, an octogenarian, hale and hearty, an elder in the Gaelic church four miles away, to which he prefers to walk every Sunday that is at all fit, disdaining the use of the family carriage. Another sister, Mrs James McAulay, also lives in Boularderie, whose son Philip, came down this week to see his uncle and only learned on his way across the country that he was dead, and who left yesterday to hurry home to prevent the sad news reaching his mother without due preparation. A second sister, Mrs Duncan Campbell lives in Kansas. Mr McRae´s elder brothers, Farquhar and Philip, the latter of whom was book-keeper at Rutherford Brothers when Roderick came to Harbor Grace, but who returned home again some time afterwards, and his sister, Mrs P McRae passed away before him. A very large number of nephews and nieces and other relatives keep the family names and traditions alive. He leaves behind him in Harbor Grace a widow nee Miss Mary Higgins, whom he married in 1871, daughter of the late Thomas Higgins, Esq., - that big hearted man whose name is a synonym for open handed hospitality and kindness to the poor - besides two sons John and Frank, and one daughter Ida. To all these, the Standard extends its deep sympathy. [courtesy of Mary Ann Burrows]

McNeil John Joseph McNeil Cape Breton Post 8/1/1937 Robert G. McNeil J. J. McNeil Dies Suddenly In Glace Bay Prominent Mining Official Stricken Saturday, Dies Sunday Glace Bay, August 1 Stricken Saturday morning at his home on Newton Street, John Joseph McNeil died this morning at half past eight due to a stroke and cerebrel hemmorages. In the death of Mr. McNeil, the coal mining industry has lost a highly capable mining official whos has been actively associated with coal mining in Cape Breton for over fifty years, and who was acknowledged to be one of the most capable mining men to ever fill an offical position in the Cape Breton coal fields. Born sixty three years ago in the "Block House" district at Port Morien, Mr. Mc Neil like most boys of that period, entered the mines at Morien when 12 years of age as a trapper boy in the mine. Deputy Inspector - From trapper boy he rose to the position of District Deputy Inspector of Mines for the province of Nova Scotia and was also for some time a District Superintendent of Mines for the Dominion Coal Company When still in his teens, he showed he was ambitious to forge ahead in the mining industry and he came to Glace Bay from Port Morien securing work at mining in Caledonia. He was not long in Caledonia before he was operating a coal cutting machine and afterwords became a shot firer. Under Ground Manager - When No. 9 Collery opened some thirty years ago, he was sent to that collery as underground manager. After a time he was promoted to the post of manager of No. 9 over which Alexander MacEachern, Glace Bay was District Superintendent. Mr. McNeil was offered by the Provincial Government of that time and accepted the position of Inspector of Mines of all mines on the southern side, with the late Neil Nicholson in charge of all mines on the northside as government inspector. Filling this position with his usual marked ability, Mr. McNeil some years afterards resigned and was placed in charge of No. 9 collery where he remained in charge until 1922 when he was promoted to the position of District superintendent of the Waterford mines. To (New) Waterford - He filled that position for a period until the offices of district superintendents were abolished, when he was placed in charge of No. 14 collery at New Waterford. After serving in that position for some years, he was transferred to Glace Bay and placed in charge of all construction work in No. 2 collery, being recognized as one of the most capable and best versed men on mine ventilation,his work in No. 2 collery was a very important one. He was engaged in his last official capacity until injured on the seventeenth of last december, when an accident in No. 2 collery resulted in him being severely injured, suffering a compound fracture of one of his ankles, which confined him to hospital for several months. He had planned to resume his position and Friday evening was engaged in painting his garage and remarked to friends he was anxious to get back into harness again. Saturday morning, Mr. McNeil suffered a paralytic stroke which was followed by cerebral hamorages and he died this morning after receiving the last rites of the Catholic church of which he was a devout member. When the provincial government took over the mines in Inverness a few years ago, they secured leave of absence for Mr. McNeil for a period of one year to put the mines there in shape, and under his management, a new bankhead was erected at Inverness and other mining operation improvements made, not the least of which were the driving of the large tunnel connecting up with the main slope which provided one way haulage. On the completion of his year at Inverness, he had the opportunity of remaining on as manager, but chose to return to the coal company in order not to break his long service record with that company. Mr. McNeil was married twice, his first wife passing away in 1921. He married Miss Elizabeth MacKinnon, of Sydney seven years ago and she survives him as well as five sons, all associated with the coal industry here and at Waterford and three daughters. The daughters are Mrs. Michael Connors, New Waterford, Mrs. Joseph Merriam, New Aberdeen and Frances Camilla "Girlie" who left last Tuesday on a visit to her cousins Mr. and Mrs. Michael Hardy in Malden, Mass., but who are now enroute home for the funeral.

McKenzie Murdock and Dan McKenzie Sydney Post Record p 13 11/6/1943 R. Fraser CAUSE OF BLAZE UNKNOWN TWO GLACE BAY MEN LOSE LIVES IN FIRE Glace Bay, Nov 6 - Flames raging through a small dwelling on First St., New Aberdeen, early tonight brought death to two well known Glace Bay residents, Murdock McKenzie, 60, occupant of the building, and his brother, Dan MacKenzie, 56, of Pleasant St. Cause of the holocaust has not been determined, but those who entered the tiny structure after the flames had been extinguished expressed the belief that the bed was ignited by a careless smoker. Found In Bed When firemen entered the building after the flames has been extinguished they found murdock MacKenzie lying face up on the remains of the bed. Only the wire spring of the bed was left and this had fallen to the floor. He was burned beyond recognition and identification was possible only because of a cast on one of his legs. Second Victim Dan McKenzie, the second victim, was found lying face down on the floor with part of the body under the small kitchen stove. His body and one side of his face was badly burned and great difficulty was experienced in identifying the remains. It was not until several hours after the body had been removed from the fire scarred premises that it was identified. Living Alone Murdock MacKenzie, who was unmarried, had lived in the small building alone. The structure could better described as a shack and was located on the south side of First Street, near the tram lines. Notice Blaze About 8:30 this evening pedestrians along First Street noticed that the place was afire and a call was sent for the town fire department. Neighbors had seen signs of activity around the place a short time earlier and efforts were immediately made to enter the place and see if anyone was inside. The flames had made such progress when noticed, however, that it was impossible to enter the tiny building and those who were first on the scene were obliged to stand helplessly by until the firemen arrived. Within a few minutes, the flames had been controlled and it was possible to enter the place. Discover Body Going to the rear of the premises members of the department first discovered Murdock MacKenzie in the ruins of the bed and he was removed to a local mortuary while the search for the other victim was continued. No one had seen Dan MacKenzie enter the place, but during the late afternoon it appeared to neighbors that more than one person was inside and the search was continued. Shortly after Murdock MacKenzie had been taken away the second victim was discovered lying partly under the small stove. Members of the Family Dan MacKenzie, 56,was married and worked at No. 2 Colliery until three years ago when he was badly injured. Besides his widow, he is survived by a son Fraser, a stepson, Bill MacPherson, a stepdaughter, Mrs Albert Sper, in New York; two brothers, Alex and Kenneth in Drumheller, Alta., and a sister, Mrs Dan Matheson in California. Glace Bay Native Murdock MacKenzie was 60 years of age and was a life long resident of Glace Bay. For many years he was employed at No. 2 Colliery and recently had been working as a material man in No. 20 Mine. Some time ago he was injured about the leg and since then the member has been in a cast. So badly scarred was the remains that identification was possible only because of this cast. Dan MacKenzie, the second victim, was badly burned about the body and one side of the face. However, there has been sufficient of his face unmarked to enable his friends to identify him. Both men are widely known in the community and the tragic occurrence has occasioned widespread regret. Origin Undetermined While officials of the fire department have not decided on the cause of the fire, they feel that both men must have been asleep when the flames spread through the tiny building and that death occurred while they were both sleeping. It appears that the fire originated near the bed where Murdock MacKenzie was found as the mattress was completely destroyed and that portion of the place was more seriously damaged than others. The remains are reposing at Lowden's Mortuary where they will be viewed by the Coroner later.

Mrs McKenzie possessed many virtues and a wonderful disposition and traits of character that endeared her to all, and among the older residents of the town particularly her death is heard with a great deal of regret.

McLeod William McLeod Sydney Post Record p 1 & 7 8/20/1934 R. Fraser SYDNEY MAN DIES IN CRASH WM. MACLEOD MEETS DEATH IN AUTO FATALITY Car Overturns Three Times Following Blowout On Grand Lake Road - McLeod Instantly Killed; Two Companions Suffer Injuries When their car overturned three times on the Grand Lake Road, Saturday evening about eight o'clock, while they were returning to this city after attending a ball game at Glace Bay, William McLeod, 28, was instantly killed and his associates Leo Cooke and Duncan McIntyre, painfully injured. The accident, the worst and most distressing to occur here this season, is believed to have been caused by a blowout in the left front tire. The car swerved to the opposite side of the road, rode the ditch for a few feet, and after hitting a small drain platform crashed into a large rock at the side of the road in spinningly somersault and landed in the gutter again, wheels up. McLeod, who is a son of Mr and Mrs A A McLeod, 34 Catherine street, Whitney Pier, was driving the car according to several eye witnesses, he was tossed from the bouncing machine into the air for about 20 feet and landed face downward on the wooden platform. Cooke, also thrown from the car, was found on the side of the road, while McIntyre was pinned under the wreckage. Heard Crash Residents nearby attracted by the sound of the crash rushed to the scene and placed the victims aboard a passing automobile which conveyed them to the City Hospital. There, it was found that MacLeod was dead and McIntyre and Cooke, the latter having regained consciousness, suffering greatly from shock, cuts and bruises. Heart Pierced Examination at the morgue showed that McLeod's heart was pierced in two places, presumably caused by some sharp protruding piece of wreckage. This, it is believed, was the cause of death, although his left arm was broken, body lacerated and bruised, and skull cap torn. Screaming Brakes Screaming automobile brakes attracted the attention of Michael Kane, who was in a house occupied by a Graham family near the scene of the accident, and in peering out the window he noticed the car swing to the side of the road. He rushed outside to see the car complete its final somersault an discerned a twisting form drop from the air onto the drain platform. Saw Accident Miss Winifred Adams, the other eye-witness, also in the house at the time, said she saw the car coming along and after it crashed into the ditch and hit the rack, she noticed a man thrown into the air and fall on the platform. The car she told the coroner's inquest yesterday afternoon, appeared as if it was dragging along the road before it went into the ditch. She said it turned over three times and two men were thrown from it. Kane Testifies-- Kane, in testifying before the inquiry, said he found Cooke lying near a large rock at the side of the road and he then walked over to where McLeod was lying face downward on the platform. In his opinion McLeod was killed instantly. Going to the overturned car he perceived someone under it and lifted the side of it until others extricated the victim from the wreckage. Tire Blew Out-- Belief is that the tire blew out and the car listed wildly to the side of the road and tore along the drain, McLeod attempted to bring it under control and (Continued on page 7) swing it back to the highway again. But while doing so, the car hit the unnoticed rock and went into a triple spin. Visited Scene-- Deputy Chief of Police R J McDonald with Chief of Police W R Tracey, proceeded to the scene of the fatality after being notified from the hospital by Dr Malcolm McAulay and took measurements which he submitted before the inquest. The pavement, he said, is 18 feet wide at this particular spot and the platform which covers the drain leading to the Graham property if 14 feet in length. Car Hit Platform-- He found the car had hit the east end of the platform and then stopped 43 feet away. There were wheel marks for a distance of 60 feet leading to the gutter, he said. In answer to a question from Dr J K McLeod, Coroner, witness said a flat tire might have caused the accident. He said there was a street light near the scene of the fatality. Car Wrecked-- The car, later towed to Logue's garage here, is a total wreck and beyond repair. The two wheels on the left side were torn off, only the spokes remaining.

MacDougall was a member of St. John's Church at New Aberdeen and through the years was faithful in his parochial duties.

McRae Johanna McRae Sydney Post Record p 5 5/24/1955 R. Fraser New Zealand Last Survivor of Cape Breton Pioneers Dies A hundred years ago six shiploads of Scottish settlers migrated from Cape Breton to New Zealand. On May 6, the last survivor of these pioneers died. The following story tells how the Nova Scotian settlers and their descendants retained their identity in their new homeland. By J. C. Graham Canadian Press Correspondent Waipu, New Zealand (CP) The greatest claim in fame anyone could have in the New Zealand district of Waipu was to be a Nova Scotian. For a century the recognized aristocracy of the area have been the pioneers who arrived in the original six ships. Now the last survivor has died. She was Mrs. Johanna McRae, who died May 6 in the Whangarei hospital, aged 97. There were 876 Scottish settlers in the migration from Nova Scotia between 1851 and 1859 in ships they build [sic] themselves. The Nova Scotians founded the town of Waipu, in the northland region of the North Island, and dominated the district ever since. It is a prosperous farming area but the early families have not been swamped by a great influx of people from other areas as have the original settlers in most New Zealand districts. As a result Waipu has retained a distinctive Scottish and Nova Scotian character until this day. Old customs and observances survive the people still maintain in close contacts with relatives in Nova Scotia. The migration is remembered in a museum, and official visits were exchanged a few years ago on the occasion of the centenary of the settlement. Last of Elders The pioneers honored founders of the town have been dwindling rapidly however. Until last month the doyen was Mrs Jessie McKenzie who arrived in the barque Ellen Lewis at the age of seven; she died at 102. That left Mrs Johanna McRae as the sole survivor. She was a Nova Scotian by the narrowest possible margin, but it was enough to give her the title so widely honored in the district. She was born aboard the ship Bredalbane while the vessel was waiting to sail from Big Bras d’Or, Cape Breton on the voyage to New Zealand in 1857. The event delayed the departure of the ship for two days. Daughter of Mr and Mrs Murdoch McKenzie, she was given the second name of James after the master of the ship. It was not until she went to school that she learned to speak anything but Gaelic. Her earliest house was a palm leaf hut on the farm her father carved from the wilderness of Waipu. In 1888 she married John McRae who died in 1942. Since then she had lived at Whangarei a few miles north of Waipu with her daughter. But she remained active and was a prominent guest at Waipu ceremonies. The proudest moment of a long life came Dec [10?], 1953 when Mrs McRae and Mrs McKenzie, the two surviving pioneers, were presented to the Queen during her tour of New Zealand. A few days after the death of Mrs McKenzie last month, Mrs McRae fell and broke her leg. Since then she had been a patient in Whangarei hospital. But although the direct link with the Nova Scotian pioneers now has been broken, there is no danger of memories of the adventurous migration dying out. The people of the district still think of themselves as Scots from Nova Scotia. The strength of the local feeling was shown at parliamentary election last November. Although the National party previously held the constituency which includes Waipu, an acute controversy broke out over the candidate chosen to contest the seat for the party. The dispute was areconcilable[sic] and opposing factions both determined to put up a candidate. This made it virtually certain that National would lose the seat as Labor and Social Credit were both strong in the district and put forward particularly good candidates. The contest was hotly fought but on polling day McKay won a resounding victory over his three rivals. The people of the district showed in no uncertain fashion that [????] in their origins outweighed mere political issues.

Born in Glace Bay, he was the son of the late Mr. & Mrs. Dan McDonald. It was in March, 1942, that "Johnnie Dan" McDonald was first elected to the Glace Bay Town Council representing the people of Ward Five. He held this post continuously for 34 years, until 1976 when he retired for health reasons. He generally was returned by acclamation except for two terms when he faced opposition and won by large majorities. On one occasion it was a two-way fight, and on another it was with four candidates in the running. Johnnie Dan served under three Glace Bay Mayors, Dan Willie Morrison, Dan Alex MacDonald and Dan A. Munroe. "See Johnnie Dan" seemed to be for years the solution to many problems experienced by people living in many parts of Glace Bay, but it was his attention to the needs of the residents of the Sterling area which won for him the honorary title of "Mayor of Sterling".

He was one of the organizers of the Sterling Athletic Club, one of the most popular and active organizations ever formed, and held the office of president for many years. He was on the Board of St. Anne's CYW, served on the Board of Directors of St. Joseph's Hospital for over twenty five years, was a member of the Cape Breton Boxing Commission, and was also a member of the Board of School Commissioners, also for more than twenty five years, and was also a member of the Joint Expenditure Board.

During his many years of Sincere effort toward better conditions for the citizens of Glace Bay, many tributes were paid to Johnnie Dan McDonald. On May 10th, 1969, the citizens of Ward Five held a testimonial dinner for him to commemorate over twenty five years of dedicated service, while in 1970 he was presented with the Citizen-of-the-Week Award by CHER radio. The Department of Education presented him with a pin to mark his more that a quarter century of service in this area, and in 1972, the Town of Glace Bay presented him with a wall clock with an inscription stating that this was in commemoration for thirty years' service to the people of Glace Bay. One of Johnnie Dan's biggest dreams was the formation of a new school for the Sterling and New Aberdeen area, and this he was able to see brought to fruition in the completion of the John Bernard Croak, V.C. Memorial School. Mr. McDonald was a member of St. Leo's Parish and was predeceased by his wife, Cassie McDonald, three children in infancy and by several brothers and sisters.

McMerty Arthene Ann (Reiley) McMerty Cape Breton Post 3/19/2005 Maureen McNeil Arthene Ann (Reiley) McMerty, RN Although she battled cancer with all her will, this was not a fight that Arthene could win. Born in Sydney Mines,N.S., in 1963, she died on Wednesday, March 16, 2005, surrounded by her family and friends. She is survived by her soulmate, Patrick, just newly her husband,whom she taught that life is worth celebrating, even when common sense might suggest otherwise. Her beloved children, Ashley and Mason Dawe, in whom she instilled the thoughts that what counts in life is people, not things, and to live wisely and love fiercely. Her parents, Theresa and Truman Reiley, Mill Creek, she gave them the gift of love they had always shown to her, and of life, in the lives of her children. Her brothers, Ewan (Dolores), Dartmouth, and Timothy (Lisa), Sydney, she taught them that even when they had all grown up, the history of their childhood still mattered. A graduate of St. Rita School of Nursing, 1984, she began her career at Fort McMurray Regional Hospital, Alberta, returning to Nova Scotia in 1989, to join the nursing staff at the IWK Health Centre. In addition to being a valued staff member in the emergency department, Arthene saw the need for sharing her expertise and became an instructor in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PedALS) in 1997. Arthene has since then provided instruction and mentorship for many health-care providers across Atlantic Canada. In 2001, she also took on the role of director of the PedALS program at the IWK. Shortly there after she became a certified sexual assault nurse examiner and was pursuing studies in forensic nursing at Mount Royal College. This year Arthene was honoured with the Margaret Ross Award. This award is given to a registered nurse that displays exemplary service to children, youth, women and their families. It is the highest honour bestowed upon a nurse at the IWK Health Centre. Her colleagues at the IWK will miss her humour and gentleness and the sense of family that she was able to bring to work every day. Arthene was unique in so many ways. She lived life to the fullest. She enjoyed the out outdoors, special times with family and friends, as well as quiet times of reflection, reading and putting her special thoughts to paper. Full of adventure and vitality, her senses of playfulness and enduring youth are among her best and most memorable qualities. She knew the wisdom of believing in fairies. Those who knew and loved her will never be the same, we are glad to have shared in the journey of her life. Besides her immediate family, Arthene will be missed by her mother-in-law, Diane Hudson, her two sisters-in-law, Erin (Steve) Dienesch and Trish McMerty and one brother-inlaw, Michael Reaume, all of Ontario; and by her special nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Her grandparents, Elizabeth and Joseph Johnston and Idella and Gordon Reiley, predeceased her. "This is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless, away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done, the fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou lovest best, Night, sleep, death, and stars." At Arthene's request, we ask that instead of flowers, you consider a contribution to the Canadian Cancer Society or the IWK Health Centre; and that when you have read these words, you hug the people you love and tell them that you love them. A service to remember and celebrate Arthene's life will be held at T.K. Bernard Funeral Home, 3460 Dutch Village Rd., Halifax, Sunday, March 20, at 2 p.m. Arthene will be laid to rest at a later date in Brooksid April 23, 2005Arthene Ann (Reiley) McMerty COMMITTAL SERVICE - There will be a brief service held at Brookside Cemetery, Halfway Road, Sydney Mines, Sunday, April 24, at 2 p.m. for the late Arthene Ann.

Catherine, Ottawa, Mary Alice (Ian Bennett), Washington, D.C., Rosella, Ottawa, Anne (John Biard) and Rod (Jeanne Lacelle), Aylmer, Que., Jessie (Rob Clairmont) and James (Joanne Boucher), also of Ottawa.

Born in Bridgeport, N.S., Michael was instrumental in the establishment of a co-operative housing project in 1939 in Dominion, C.B. Married in 1941, Michael and Rosella settled in Dominion, after his return from army service in the Signal Corps in Newfoundland and Europe. In 1956, the family moved to Aylmer and Michael worked as a stationary engineer for the federal Department of Public Works and the Department of National Defence. As his family grew, Michael was involved in various church and school committees (St. Mark the Evangelist) and was a member of several municipal organizations in Aylmer. After retirement in 1978 Michael, not yet ready for an easy chair, worked as a commissionaire and taught at Algonquin College in Ottawa, as well as continuing his volunteer work at St. Mark’s Parish. Neither a cancer operation in 1981, nor a heart attack in 1984, kept him from his ‘projects’ including a garden which provided the ingredients for his famous stews. He was chief cook at the annual family gatherings which heralded spring and bid farewell to the fall. Michael leaves to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren a legacy of high morals, a strong work ethic and an unshakeable sense of family. Michael never complained. He was a wise and peaceful man, ever eager to debate the state of science, politics, religion or the economy and always ready with a wee nip and a good word for all who crossed his threshold. He was greatly respected and deeply loved and will be sorely missed by all who were graced with his company. No visitation.

McMaster Samuel A. McMaster
1/11/2003 Ann Batten PORTSMOUTH - Samuel A. McMaster, 80, died on Saturday, Jan. 11, 2003, at Portsmouth Regional Hospital after a brief illness. A longtime Portsmouth real estate broker and former city councilor, he was born in Portsmouth on Aug. 11, 1922, to the late John D. and Marie (Redish) McMaster. He was a lifelong resident and a well-known businessman and politician in the community. His Scot heritage originated from Creignish, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, where the name is still MacMaster. His father and uncle migrated to Portsmouth in the early 1900s to begin their families. He was the fourth of five children, survived by his brother, John J. McMaster of West Newton, Mass.; and two sisters, Elizabeth Black of Portsmouth and Marie Fernald of Lancaster, Calif. He attended St. Patrick’s School and was a member of Portsmouth High School’s Class of 1941. He was a founding parishioner of St. Catherine of Siena Church in Portsmouth. He joined the war effort like so many of his generation in 1942, beginning with basic training at Camp Blanding, Fla., and maneuvers in Tennessee with the 30th "Old Hickory" Infantry Division. With his fellow comrades-in-arms, he was shipped out to England in February 1944. Further training was conducted in England in preparation for the "D-Day" invasion of Normandy. His division crossed the English Channel on June 11, 1944, landing on the beaches of Normandy as part of "Operation Overlord" for the battle of St. Lo. On July 18, 1944, in St. Mere Eglise, France, he was severely wounded by a German mortar shell. He spent the next few years in and out of hospitals in England and the United States. He eventually was transferred to Cushing General Hospital, Framingham, Mass., where he met and fell in love with his Army nurse, Lt. Lucille E. Berard, whom he married in 1946. Returning to Portsmouth, which he lovingly referred to as "God’s Country," they started a family and raised seven children together. In 1996, after 50 years of marriage, his beloved wife and nurse passed away. Upon his return to Portsmouth, he started his own business at 562 Islington St. - Sam McMaster Real Estate and Insurance Agency - across from his good friend and former mayor, the late John Leary, who owned and operated Leary’s Market. Sam spent many years with John in the local political arena. He was a Portsmouth city councilor for 16 years, serving on numerous council committees. He was also involved in state and national politics. He ran for state senator and was involved with the campaigns of U.S. Senators Thomas McIntire and Estes Kefauver, attending the national convention in Chicago, Ill., in 1952. He was an active member and past president of the Seacoast Board of Realtors. In 1981 the business name changed to The Sam and John McMaster Agency and relocated to 116 Middle St., Haymarket Square, where it still thrives today. He continued working right up to the time of his death after more than 50 years as a local real estate owner/broker. He belonged to many local clubs and fraternal organizations, including Knights of Columbus, the Elks and the local chapter of the Disabled American Veterans. He recently celebrated his 50-year membership with the Elks Lodge of Portsmouth. For many years he served as the commander of the Piscataqua Chapter 4 D.A.V. and most recently served on the executive board. His greatest passion was his family. His love for his children and grandchildren made his life complete. He taught them that anything is possible with hard work and a positive attitude, as was demonstrated through his own life. He is survived by his loving children: John N. McMaster, Marie L. Kauten, Christopher M. McMaster and Jeannette E. MacDonald, of Portsmouth, Samuel A. McMaster Jr., of Albuquerque, N.M., Donald "Jay" McMaster, of Aurora, Colo., and LuAnne M. Wells, of Spokane, Wash.; 27 grandchildren, six great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his parents; his wife; and in 1998 his sister, Katherine Patrikus of Portsmouth.
