Boudrot Capt. Thomas Boudrot The Casket 30/10/1890 Mary Chaplain Obituary The well-known Capt. Thomas Boudrot died at his residence in Arichat on Thursday evening, the 23rd inst., after a lingering illness, which he bore with resolute endurance and Christian resignation. He was yet in the youth of old age, being only fifty-five years, and leaves a wife, a large family, and an extensive circle of friends to mourn their irreparable loss. Capt. Boudrot was one of the many descendants of a French family that settled in Cape Breton over a century ago.

Burke Captain Michael Burke THE CASKET 24/03/1898 Maureen McNeil THE LATE CAPTAIN MICHAEL BURKE - Another of Cape Breton's oldest and most repected citizens has been called away in the person of Captain Michael Burke of Main-a-dieu. The summons came on the 6th inst. when consoled with the last rites of the Catholic Church of which he had been a most faithful member, he reparted this life fully resigned to the will of Almighty God. Captain Burke had lived a most useful life and a life which was indeed above the ordinary. He was born at Main-a-dieu on the 10th of June 1812 and at an early entered upon the sea-faring life, during the course of which he had seen the greater part of the world. He may be said to have been a sea captian of the old school and as a consquence was a sea captain in every sense of the term. He owned at one time or another as many as fifteen vessels, the greater number of which he had built with his own hands. During the last twenty years Captain Burke lived practically in seclusion giving himself up to the study and as he so very himself said to a preparation for the end to which we were all created. There can be no mistaking it, Capt. Burke was a thorough student and any man whoever had the pleasure of conversing with him will readily testify to this fact. His remains will be laid to rest in the cemetery at Main-a-dieu on the 8th inst. after a solemn High Mass of Requiem. He leaves behind him one surviving son, Captain William Burke, one daughter Mrs Bates of Louisbourg and a large number of grandchildren. To thes we extend our heartfelt sympathies. R.I.P. 24/03/1898

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.

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
