Deceased was a man of sterling character, being held in very warm regard by his many friends. He was born on the old homestead on the banks of the St. Lawrence [actually between the Canal and the river] 71 years ago, and spent his younger days sailing on the Great Lakes and for some years was foreman of the government scow. After his marriage he lived at Maple Grove. In 1885 he moved to the farm on the West Front, where he followed farming for a number of years. He bought the tug Frank Jackman in 1897 and was employed by the Sooysmith Company when the O. & N. Y. bridge was being built across the south channel of the St. Lawrence at Cornwall. In 1898 he sold the Jackman to some Kingston people and nine years later purchased the tug W. C. Francis of Montreal, and towed in the Cornwall Canal until he sold the tug a few years later, and retired to the farm where he died. The late Capt. Blackadder is survived by his only son, Ernest, and three sisters - the Misses Blackadder of Beaconsfield and Mrs. Hough of Smithville. His wife predeceased him some two years ago.

A.J. BLANCHETTE, EX-LUMBERMAN
Arthur J. Blanchette, a retired vice president of Rochester Lumber Company and a member of the Rochester Institute of Technology Football Hall of Fame, died last Thursday of cancer at the Brightonian Nursing Home. He was 88.

Mr. Blanchette graduated from the old Mechanics Institute, now RIT in 1923. He held a certificate in architecture from the school, but was not state certified, as Mechanics did not offer a state-certified architectural course, said Donald Hershey, a retired architect who knew Mr. Blanchette for more than 50 years.

"He knew more than some of the others (who were state certified)," Hershey said. Mr. Blanchette designed his home in Fairport, where his wife still resides, said his son of Fairport. He also designed a building on Goodman Street, his son said.

Times were not always easy when Mr. Blanchette attended college, his son said. "He came from a very poor family. He worked his way through college by playing the violin and cutting hair", said his son.

Playing defensive back and offensive halfback in college, Mr. Blanchette was elected as captain of the varsity team after his freshman year, his son said. Speed was one of his assets. "Art was so fast they couldn't catch up to him," Hershey said. "He wasn't big like a fullback, but he was fast." Election to RIT's Football Hame of Fame was a "high point" in Blanchette's life, said his son.

Besides his wife and son Jon, Mr. Blanchette is survived by three brothers, Napoleon of Salisbury, Connecticut, William of Sraon, Connecticut, and Leonard of North Palm Beach, Florida; two sisters, Evelyn Shortell of Oneida, Madison County, NY, and Loretta Driscoll of Cheshire, Connecticut; and one grandchild.

The death of Mr. George M. Crites, of his Majesty's Customs Service, which occurred on Friday the 17th inst., [17 Jun 1910] removes from our midst one of Cornwall's oldest and most highly esteemed residents. Although in his seventy-fourth year, he was about and apparently in the enjoyment of his usual health until within a few days of his demise and the announcement of his passing away was a shock to the community in which he was so universally respected. The late Mr. Crites was born in the Township of Cornwall on Jan. 7th, 1837. When a young man, he went to the Georgian Bay District and engaged in the lumber business. After spending some time there he returned to his old home, and a few years later he married Catharine Eamer, eldest daughter of the late Matthias Eamer. His wife died less than two years ago. Shortly after their marriage they took up residence in the Town of Cornwall and Mr. Crites was engaged with the late Andrew Hodge, contractor, who at that time had the contract for the building of the piers at the head of the Longue Sault Rapids. He was also with Mr. Hodge when that gentleman was building the Stormont Cotton Mill, which was destroyed by fire in 1874, being afterwards rebuilt. Mr. Crites was appointed by the Dominion Government as Inspector of Weights and Measures, a position he filled for two years, and on removal of the office to Ottawa he was appointed to the position of Customs Inspector, holding the office until his death. Mr. Crites was an ardent supporter of athletics and always took an active interest in the Cornwall Lacrosse Club being a member of the Executive Committee of that organization for a number of years. Several of his sons were prominent among the players of the team in its palmiest days, assisting in winning first the intermediate championship and then the senior championship of the world. He was a prominent member of several fraternal societies, having served Financier of Cornwall Lodge, A.O.U.W., for twenty-one years, during which time he devoted himself most zealously to the advancement of the interests of this very worthy order. The members have given proof of their appreciation of the valuable service he rendered in his lifetime, and they marked their warm regard for him by an exceedingly large assemblage at the funeral to pay a parting tribute of respect. There was also a very representative gathering of the citizens generally and the cortege was one of the largest ever seen in Cornwall. The service, at Trinity (Memorial) Church, was conducted by the Rector, Rev. J. T. Stiles. The pall-bearers were Messrs. Roland Snetsinger, Alex. Eamer, J. B. Atchison, A. E. Evans, John McCracken and David Lewars. The late Mr. Crites is survived by ten children, six sons and four daughters, all of whom were with him in his last days with the exception of one daughter, Miss Clara Crites, who resides in California. The other members of the family are Messrs. Walter, Donald and George O. of Cornwall; John, of Lewiston, Me.; Wm. P. and David M., of Montreal; Mrs. J. A. McRae, Sarnia, Ont.; Mrs. Wallace Carpenter and Mrs. David Girey, Cornwall. The six sons are all men of stalwart build and they formed a conspicuous group in the funeral procession as they followed the remains of their father to the grave. Many beautiful flowers were sent by sympathizing friends of the family.

Securing a teacher's certificate he taught school at the Red school house base line Camden for four years, later farming on the old homestead, But teaching and farming were too slow for one of his energetic dispositions and he secured the position of clerk-clerk treasurer for the school board both of which he held for many years with credit and satisfaction to himself and the village. He also added insurance and conveyancing and was also conceded the best auctioneer in the country. His life was a useful and busy one and he had the faculty of gaining the confidence and friendship of everyone with whom he conducted business.

Mrs. Carrie Dafoe, 70, Dies
Prominent in Church Affairs
Mrs. Carrie Vincent Dafoe, 70, president of the Women's Society of Christian Service in the First Methodist Church, and prominent in other church and fraternal organizations, died early Sunday morning, June 2, 1957, at her home at 2 Brighton St.
Mrs. Dafoe served as drill mistress at the Rebekah Lodge meeting Tuesday night but told friends that she did not feel well. She and her sister-in-las, Mrs. George Edwin Vincent, recently widowed, had planned to drive to Webster during the week to visit a sister, Mrs. William (May) Francis. However, on Wednesday morning, she was taken to the Massena Memorial Hospital in the Donaldson ambulance. She was under observation, and it appeared that she was just overly tired.
She was discharged from the hospital Saturday and was brought to her home by Mrs. Audrey O'Connor, a long time friend in church and fraternal affairs, and her sister-in-law. She was anxious to be home and that evening talked with her sister by long distance telephone. She slept downstairs, carefully following her physician's orders to keep from climbing stairs or doing anything else that would tax her heart.
Death came some time during the night. She was found by her sister-in-law at about 8 o'clock Sunday morning.
Mrs. Dafoe was born in Aultsville, Ont., Sept. 10 1886, a daughter of Howard and Ida Jackson Vincent. She attended school in Gallingertown and was married to Clarence Dafoe Nov. 6, 1906. They came to Massena in 1919 and Mrs. Dafoe died Aug. 11, 1954.
Surviving are the son, Ronald Dafoe, 17; one sister, Mrs. William (May) Francis in Webster; several nieces and nephews.
Mrs. Dafoe was an ardent worker in church and fraternal organizations; she worked just as zealously in low offices as in high offices. She delighted in doing things, in seeing organizations go ahead.
In the First Methodist Church where she held membership, she was a power that will be greatly missed. She was president of the WSCS and the East Orvis St. division of that organization. Some years ago she studied a course in feeding large groups, in order that she could help more at church suppers. She not only handled details, but Mrs. Dafoe was often among the last to leave the church, helping to wash the last dish. She loved flowers, and for years she has had charge of the floral arrangements at the altar in the First Methodist Church.
She sang in the choir and was always regular at rehearsals as well as at the Sunday services. She taught Sunday School for many years and served as superintendent of the teen age department. She was president of the Bethany Class for a time. She was a member of St. Lawrence Rebekah Lodge 348 and was past matron and past district deputy grand matron. She was a member of Cretona Chapter 516, and was a member and past royal matron of Massena Court 70, Order of Amaranth, and a past district deputy. She was a member of the White Shrine. Mrs. Dafoe also worked in civic organizations and in fund drives to help worthwhile causes. She was a most efficient worker. The body has been taken to the family home by the Donaldson Funeral Service. Funeral services will be conducted Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock in t he First Methodist Church, with the Rev. William O. Thomas, pastor, officiating. She will be buried beside her husband in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Ontario.
The Eastern Star will conduct memorial services at 7 o'clock Tuesday night, and the Amaranath at 7:30 that evening. St. Lawrence Rebekah Lodge will hold services at 7:15.

Newington
James Arthur Duvall This village on Sunday, April 3, 1927, lost one of its most venerable and respected citizens in the person of James Arthur Duvall. The late Mr. Duvall was born in Lunenburg on May 12, 1837, being in his 90th year at the time of his death. He had resided here for the past 53 years. He leaves to mourn his loss his widow, one son and two daughters, - Frank N. Duvall, Chelsea, Quebec; J. W. Duvall, Newington; and Mrs. A. C. Jardine, Newington, and also one sister, M. A. Duvall, Newington. Mr. Duvall was married at Thorold, Ontario on October 11, 1870 to Amelia C. Secord, the ceremony being performed by Rev. M. Armstrong. For a short time he lived at Dunville, Ontario, and a little over 50 years ago he and his wife moved to this village, which has since been their home. Here he was engaged in the lumbering and saw mill business, and of late years was engaged in the manufacture of cheese boxes. Mr. & Mrs. Duvall were among the pioneers of Newington, there being only three or four houses here when they came, and no churches or school. Deceased was most energetic, not only in his business, but in the promotion of the religious and educational needs of the community and was one of the first members of the local Methodist Church. He was a kind and loving husband and father, a good Neighbor, and behind every move which had for its object the betterment of the community. In his religious duties he was most attentive, being regular at the Sunday and mid-week services, and Sunday School, while he was a strong worker for the cause of temperance. On the occasion of his 83rd birthday, he was presented with a handsome cane by his employees. Although he had been in failing health for a number of years, he suffered little, if any, pain and never murmured nor complained and met trouble or joy with a calm, peaceful smile and, as his former Pastor said, "his going was just a passing over". For many years, Mr. Duvall held the position of Magistrate. His manner was ever kind, and no one ever heard him use a vile or profane word. His life in the community was one long chapter of cleanliness, sobriety, ambition and Godliness. The funeral took place on April 5, 1927, from his late residence to the Methodist United Church and Hillcrest Cemetery here and was very largely attended. The service was conducted by Rev. George Wood of Chelsea, a former pastor, Rev. G. F. Duncan, resident pastor, and Rev. A. Bishop, of Escott, a former pastor.

She was one of the original members of the Church of the Good Shepherd and for many years was actively associated with the Ladies' Guild of that church. In her own home circle she was a devoted wife and mother, a woman ever ready to do a kindly act for neighbor [sic] or friend, and she enjoyed the love and esteem of all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. Her death will be regretted by her many friends. Her husband died August 7, 1932. Left to mourn her loss are three sons and three daughters - Mrs. Hugh Adams, Marcellus, N.Y.; Mrs. George Warner, Youngstown, Ohio; Mrs. Margaret Doyle, Perth; John Eamer, David Eamer and Alexander Eamer, all of Cornwall.

Sudden Passing Mrs. G. Ellis Shocks Friends Moulinette Woman Suffers Heart Attack At Her Home Returning from the post office, where she had gone to mail a letter, Mrs. George Ellis, highly respected resident of Moulinette, was seized with a severe heart attack and died within a few minutes, about 7.30 o'clock last night, at the family home. While Mrs. Ellis had been troubled with her heart, she had not suffered a severe attack for three years, being in her usual health and able to be about all the time. She had been in Cornwall yesterday afternoon to attend the funeral of Kenneth D. Sheets, from Miller's funeral home to Mille Roches cemetery, greeting friends there in her usual affable manner and giving no indication that within a few hours death would visit her home. She partook of the evening meal with members of the family, and later left for the post office. On her return, about 7.15 o'clock, she asked members of the family to call a doctor, as she felt a heart attack coming on. Dr. G. E. Moodie, of Wales, and Dr. J. A. McGuire, of Cornwall, were summoned, the former reaching the house within a few minutes and being joined by Dr. McGuire a little later. The doctors worked over Mrs. Ellis for some time in hope of reviving her, but to no avail. Rev. James A. Wylie, parish priest at Dickinson's Landing, was summoned and reached the home in a few minutes. Mrs. Ellis died about 7.30 o'clock. Her sudden death came as a shock not only to the family, but to friends she had met at the funeral during the afternoon and those who had seen her on her way to and from the post office a few minutes before. Mrs. Ellis was born at Northfield 53 years ago last December 20, a daughter of Peter Tilton and his wife, Viola Gallinger, her maiden name being Maude Tilton. She spent the early part of her life in Northfield. She was married to Mr. Ellis 33 years ago, at Massena, and they resided there a few years before taking up residence at Moulinette 27 years ago. She was a member of the Catholic Women's League of Mille Roches. Besides her husband , she leaves a son and four daughters to mourn the loss of a loving wife and mother - Arthur Ellis, Miss Grace Ellis, Miss Emma Ellis, at home; Mrs. Stanley Masales [Viola], Niagara Falls, Ont.; Mrs. Gerald Revill [Muriel], Cornwall.

Mrs. Fitzpatrick at Rest Eliza Ann Farlinger was born in Glengarry County, Ontario, Canada on the 13 Day of April 1852; died at her home in Colbran, February 14, 1909, aged 56 years ten months and one day. On Sunday last surrounded by her children, about 10:30 p.m. Mrs. Eliza Fitzpatrick peacefully passed away. The illness which resulted in her death dates from August 5, 1908, when, while carrying the mail from Colbran to Vega she was thrown or fell from her buggy, and was picked up some hours later in a helpless condition. It developed on examination by medical experts, that her spine was injured, causing almost total paralysis of the entire body. Since that time Mrs. Fitzpatrick gradually wasted away, rallying a little from time to time, but never having any considerable use of her body. Her death was due, according to the physician's certificate of myelitis, an infection of the spinal cord. Mrs. Fitzpatrick was a type of the courageous pioneer woman who have helped to develop the frontier territory of the great nation. Born in Canada at historic old Glengarry, and of sturdy Scotch-French parentage, her early training was especially fitted to make her one of the conquerors of the desert. In 1872, she married John A. Fitzpatrick. In 1878 they came to the newly made state of Colorado. The lived at Denver and Buena Vista until the Utes were expelled from the fertile valley, nearly 27 years ago. The Fitzpatrick's brought little belongings to the old Fitzpatrick homestead at the confluence of Plateau and Buzzard creeks. Nine children, five boys and four girls survive, all living in Colbran. Two girls are married Mrs. L.J. Judlum and Mrs. W.E. Muse. Mrs. Fitzpatrick has long been known as kind-hearted "motherly" woman ministering to wherever opportunity was presented and anxious to be of service to her friends and her children. The funeral service was held at the Colbran Congregational Church where she was a member, Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock, and was conducted by Rev. Tripp. The interment was made at Colbran cemetery. A large concourse of old citizens of our valley paid their last tribute of respect to the dead, and showed their sympathy with the bereaved family by following the body of their friend and neighbor to its final resting place.

A Sudden Death
Mrs. William Gallinger died very suddenly on Monday afternoon at her husband's residence, Cornwall Centre. She had been about the house all morning and afternoon, and when her husband and elder son went out to do the evening's work, they left her preparing the evening meal. Shortly after, her younger son came in from school, and while he was playing with his little sister, his mother complained about her head and almost immediately fell on the floor. The boy called his father, who hurried to the house and did what he could to restore his wife to consciousness, but without avail. Mrs. Gallinger's maiden name was Mary Jessie Ann Eastman. She was the daughter of the late Joel Eastman, and was 41 years of age. The funeral took place on Wednesday to the Methodist church and cemetery, Moulinette, and was largely attended. The services were conducted by Rev. Dr. Myer. The Pallbearers were four brothers of the deceased - James, Alvin, Carmi, and Bernard Eastman, and two brothers-in-law, Ephraim and Orick Gallinger.

Her maiden name was Margaret Forsythe Jardine and she was born in the 7th Concession, Osnabruck, 84 years ago. Nearly 63 years ago, she married James Grant who predeceased her some 26 years ago. Mr. & Mrs. Grant moved to a farm in Dixon where they spent their married life. After Mr. Grant's death, she moved to Avonmore with her son, John, where her latter years were spent. She is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Janet Alguire of Osnabruck Centre, two sons, Russell of Aultsville and John of Avonmore.

Accident Terminates Fatally
This community was shocked on Tuesday evening when it became known that John Grant had passed away from injuries received in an accident a few days previously. On Monday morning, July 26, Mr. Grant had just finished cutting his hay on the south end of his farm and was riding on his mower while bringing it out on the main road. A large banana truck from Cornwall, heavily loaded, was on the road nearby and Mr. Grant turned out to let it pass. When the truck had gone about 150 feet away, Mr. Grant's horses became uneasy and began to run. As a result one of the sheels of the mower struck a stone and broke about 18 inches out of the rim, Mr. Grant being thrown off his seat on the mower. He held on to the reins, however, the horses passing the truck, and running into the village. Mr. Grant's leg was so severely injured that it was necessary to have a consultation, with the result that an operation was performed on Monday. The shock, however, was so great that the patient did not rally and died at 5:00 on Tuesday afternoon. The late Mr. Grant was born in Osnabruck 66 years and 10 months ago, being a son of the late George J. Grant. He was a resident here for a number of years and was held in very high esteem. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church and a faithful attendant, and will be greatly missed by all. He was of a genial disposition, an industrious man and had always enjoyed good health until he met with the accident which caused his untimely death. He is survived by his widow, two daughters and one son, - Mrs. J. R. Lamplough, Mrs. A. M. Salmon and John Franklin Grant, all of whom the heartfelt sympathy of the community is extended. The funeral took place on Saturday, August 7, from his late residence to the Presbyterian Church and Hillcrest Cemetery, Rev. Dr. Howard of Avonmore officiating in the absence of the pastor, Rev. W. W. Conrad, B.A., assisted by Rev. A. Bishop of the Methodist Church, Newington, and was very largely attended. The pallbearers were James Martin, Alex. McDonald, Isaiah Runions, G. F. Jardine, J. S. Markell and Leslie Foster. Among relatives present from a distance were Mr. & Mrs. S. Salmon, Mr. & Mrs. Willis Salmon, Mr. & Mrs. Edsal Salmon, and Mrs. A.

The many Avonmore friends of William Grant, brother of Mrs. Emerson Warner of Avonmore and John Grant of Lunenburg, were pained to hear of his sudden death on February 14, 1919, at New Liskeard. The late Mr. Grant was seized with the flu, which developed into pneumonia and he died after only a few days' illness. Deceased was a man still in the prime of life, he being only 34 years of age. He was a man of sterling qualities and a friend to all with whom he came in contact. His early death leaves a vacancy in the home and community which cannot be easily filled. He moved from his native home, First Concession of Roxborough, to New Liskeard about 10 years ago and resided there until his death. The funeral took place on February 16, 1919, from his late residence and was attended by very many friends which showed definitely the sympathy of the community for the grief-stricken widow and four sorrowing children who mourn his death.
