THE WATCHMAN, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1894
Suddenly, at Souris West, on Sept. 22nd, after a brief illness of five days, Ann McDonald, beloved wife of Richard Hayes, Esq., in the ninety-second year of her age. Deceased was the youngest daughter of L. McDonald and Ann McIntyre, of Clear Springs, Lot 44. Her parents emigrated from Scotland, and were among some of the first settlers of the Island. Her funeral service was performed by Rev. Edward Walker, D.D., at St. Alexis' Church, Rollo Bay. She was highly respected by all who knew her, and died, leaving a sorrowing husband, a son, daughter and six grand-children, together with a large circle of friends and acquaintances to mourn their loss. R.I.P.
A light from out our home has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our hearts,
Which never can be filled.
