Bierstadt Mrs. Edward Hale Bierstadt Sydney Post Record p 9 10/31/1949 R. Fraser BADDECK NATIVE DIES IN NEW YORK Baddeck, Oct 30 - The death in New York of Mrs. Edward Hale Bierstadt has ended the brilliant career of one of Baddeck’s native daughters. Born and brought up in this Cape Breton village, Mrs. Bierstadt, the former Catherine MacKenzie, was for seven years private secretary and experimental assistant to Dr. Alexander Graham Bell and later author of his biography. She was the last surviving member of the family of the late Mr. and Mrs. M. H. MacKenzie of Baddeck. Her mother, the former Maud Dunlop, was the “charming Maud” referred to in the book, Baddeck and That Sort of Thing, by Charles Dudley Warner. Her three brothers served in the 85th Battalion in the First World War. Captain Ross MacKenzie of “D” Company was killed at Passchendaele. Lt. J. D. MacKenzie, who died as a result of wounds, was a well known geologist, a PhD. of Massachusetts Tech and director of the British Columbia Division of the Geological Survey of Canada. The third brother, George H. MacKenzie, was invalided out of the Service and died shortly afterwards. Early in her writing career in New York, she wrote a series of newspaper and magazine articles on Nova Scotia on behalf of the Department of Natural Resources of Nova Scotia. For many years and up to the time of her death she was parent- child editor of the New York Times. From a review of her latest book, Parent and Child, we quote: “From a wealth of experience in writing the column ‘Parent and Child’ for the New York Times, for which she won the Lasker Award in 1947 in recognition of her work in mental hygiene, and through extensive research, Catherine MacKenzie has written a book which the modern alert parent will definitely want. The scope of the book ranges from prenatal care to the problems of parents with their bobby soxers. The opinions and advice set down are gathered from some of the foremost specialists in the country. They are presented with the accuracy for which Miss MacKenzie has been noted.” She is survived by her husband, Edward Hale Bierstadt, a noted New York literateur whose writings have won wide acclaim and who is perhaps best known for his book, The Great Betrayal, a story of the Near East situation of which he had a profound understanding. His services to the Hellenic peoples were recognized when he was decorated by the Greek government with the Silver Cross of the Order of the Redeemer. The proprietor of the Telegraph Hotel, Baddeck, Gerald Dunlop, is a first cousin of the deceased.

Brown Obed Brown Halifax Chronicle-Herald, p. 28 9/26/1955 Janice Fralic-Brown Finding of Boy’s Body Ends Hunt by Hundreds. The lifeless body of 16 year old Obed Brown, missing in the dense brush in the Spryfield- Harrietsfield, Halifax county area since Thursday afternoon, was discovered at 2 p.m. Sunday following three days of search by 300 Navy, Army, RCMP and civilian personnel. The body was discovered approximately 400 yards behind Steeves General Store less than half a mile from the boy’s home by E.G. Curran, Halifax fireman. Mr. Curran said last night he came across the body just a few yards from a well-travelled path in a clump of bushes. Inquest Oct. 5 A coroner’s inquest, under coroner T.S. Skerry, has been called for Oct. 5 at 8:30 p.m. in the Spryfield Fire Hall in connection with the boy’s death. RCMP in Halifax investigated the incident and last night said there were no signs of foul play. The investigation was expected to be continued today. The hundreds of searchers battled through dense, moisture-laden underbrush Friday, Saturday and six hours Sunday. Some 150 members of No. 1 Personnel Depot, Canadian Army, bolstered by 110 officers and men from HMCS Stadacona and HMCS Shearwater, took part in a ground search while two navy Bell helicopters from Shearwater scanned the tangled, rocky countryside from the air. Estimated hundreds of residents, school children and college students joined in the search. Heavy rains Saturday night hindered the search parties yesterday as they fanned out through the muddy woodland. Clad in coveralls and high boots, parties penetrated the wet, sloppy underbrush in an effort to bring the wearying ordeal to a close. An RCMP dog, “Satan”, aided in the search. Shortly after the discovery of the body, officials announced it would have to be brought out by stretcher. Helicopters could not land due to the dense woods and uneven surface. Duck Pond was dragged for six hours yesterday before reports reached the searchers and dragging operations cancelled. Five naval personnel from HMCS Shearwater carried a 75 pound dinghy through rugged woodland to the pond. Curran said he discovered the body less than 10 minutes after entering the wood. Walking along what he described as a”well-used” path, he caught sight of the body to his right. After examination, he called for help. RCMP were shortly at the scene. Coroner Skerry said: “It appeared as though he (Brown) were trying to build a camp. There were a lot of boards lying around…” The boy’s father, Edward Brown, identified the body. The army sector of the search was led by Major A. F. Caldwell and the navy searchers were headed by Lieutenant-Commander James Burns, Shearwater. The boy is survived by his mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Brown, Spryfield, and seven brothers and six sisters. The remains are resting at Cruikshank’s Funeral Home.

Clarke Louis Alfred ("Louie") (Clarke) Clarke Sydney Post 12/24/1955 Wanda Ross Sydney Post - died Saturday, December 24, 1955. - TOWN MOURNS DEATH OF LOUIS CLARCK (CLARKE) North Sydney - Louis Alfred ("Louie") Clarck, 69, a man who was prominently known in police circles for many years - and was Chief of the North Sydney detachment for most of the 39 years of his association with the department - passed away at his residence on May Street at 10:00 a.m. December 24th, and news of his death was learned of with deep regret by many friends throughout Cape Breton and elsewhere. Head of the Police Department of this Northside town for over a quarter of a century after he had earlier been Liquor Inspector in the town, he was one of the best known Police Chiefs in the province. He had been active in his position until ill-health obliged him to retire in May of this year. In addition to his work in connection with Police Chief, and the various duties that position carried, the former Chief was prominently known for his work in organizing numerous affairs and had been the number one figure at various Old Home Week and other celebrations held over a period of many years. He was a household name in North Sydney for a long time. "Louie" Clarck, as he was best known to a widespread circle of friends, was born at St. Pierre 69 years ago and came to North Sydney when he was 13 years old. During the first number of years that he resided here, he operated a taxi business, and later was a member of a local hotel staff for a long time. Appointed Liquor Inspector for the town, he filled this position for some years and later was appointed Chief of Police of the department - with which he had been for a total of 39 years prior to his retirement earlier this year. The deceased, who had a colourful career as a police officer and was prominently known in the Maritimes, for the persistence in "getting his man", was a fearless officer and one who had stepped into many situations which many bigger men would rather steer clear from. The one-time Chief was a crafty operator in police circles, and often "broke" cases through sheer persistence and by working on leads which were pretty slim and looked anything but encouraging when first discovered. Due to ill health, he was obliged to retire from active duty in May of this year. He was a patient in Saint Elizabeth Hospital for some time, after which he was since confined to his home. A member of St. Joseph's Church, he was twice married.

P. at North Sydney, and Constable M. D. MacKay, who had played a prominent part in the operations carried out during the week, went to the scene and after he had notified Coroner Kenneth Fraser, Sydney Mines, the body was removed to the George R. Francis Funeral Parlor, Sydney Mines. Coroner Fraser announced during the day that no inquest would be necessary in connection with the fatality. Dragging operations had been carried on since the day the youth was drowned, with the large number of persons to take part in such work in theis district being present when the entire area was scouted in a full effort to locate the body. Operations wee directed by officers of the Northside Detachment of R.C.M. Police, with a boat, the “Brule”, Capt. C. Ryan, from the Marine Division of the force being on the scene for some time. the work was furthered by the presence of a diver, Austin Bennett, of the staff of the North Sydney Marine Railway, who was on duty throughout the day, and again on Monday.

Thus maybe thinks you've been forgot;
But you can look deep in our hearts,
And see the scars to prove you're not.
