Aitkin Age, Saturday October 10, 1885, P.4 C.5

The whole community was shocked upon Sunday evening by learning of the death by drowning on Friday night of Mr. Wm. Maghan, night watchman on the steamer Fawn. That boat upon last week, owing to her large freight business, was compelled to make two trips, leaving on her second one at noon on Friday. The accident which deprived the unfortunate man of his life occurred at about 3 a. m. on Saturday morning, the darkness at the time of its occurrance being very intense. It is not exactly known how it happened but the last seen of Mr. Maghan he started forward to cover some stacks of feed with a tarpaulin, which, leaving set his lantern upon the deck, where it was found a few minutes later, he no doubt attempted to do, but by some means stumbled or slipped off the guard between it and the barge. He came up after falling about midway of the boat right under the guard but soon floated out and beyond the boat calling to the pilot as he was swept past to "back up," and again his voice rang out upon the dark and somber night in an agonizing cry for "help," which those in hearing of the helpless man struggling with the cruel waters were unable to do. The Fawn upon this trip had no canoe or small boat with her, and although the steamer was backed at once, nothing could be seen or heard of him. At the time of the accident Mr. Maghan wore an overcoat, and even a young and expert swimmer would scarcely have been able to contend with such a weight of clothing on, much less a man of his age, and one who had not been in the water for many years.

The scene of the drowning was at a bend in the river, which the boat was just rounding one mile above Pine Rapids, and the boat waited until daylight in the vain effort to find the remains but without avail. Upon her return further search was made but without avail.

Wm. Maghan was a native of Duntroon, Ireland, and was 62 [sic] years of age. He had been in America something over thirty [sic] years, settling first in Canada and later coming to Duluth and finally four years ago to Aitkin. He leaves a wife and a large family of children most of whom reside at Aitkin.

1 May 1907 KEENAN, Patrick -City Chamberlain dead City Chamberlain Patrick KEENAN died last night at his home, 253 Seventh street, Manhattan.

Gathered about his bedside when the end came were many men of prominence in New York's official life. His only known relative, a nephew, Hugh MEENAGH, was out of town.

Patrick KEENAN was born on the 17th of March, 1837. The anniversary of his birth, St. Patrick's Day, was always made the occasion for merriment by Mr. KEENAN's friends on the lower East Side. Coming from his native place, the County Tyrone, Ireland, at the age of 14, he settled in New York. He obtained a place as a ship plumber's apprentice. Later he became a calker in the shipyards on the East Side, and finally branched out with his brother, James, in a saloon venture when both were young men. They opened a place at Avenue C and Thirteenth street, but Pat KEENAN soon tired of the liquor business, declaring it was not the right sort of work for a young man to stay in.
Chamberlain KEENAN received a salary from the city of $12,000 a year, and much of this he distributed in charity. Having no relatives to care for, and being a bachelor, he had only himself to support, and his fortune soon grew into the hundreds of thousands, for he never squandered his money. The details of his political career would fill several newspapers. His funeral will be one of the most largely attended ever held in New York.

Hockley village lost one of its oldest citizens last week in the person of Mr. Thos. Hackett, who passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 20th, at the ripe age of 87 years and 8 months. The late Mr. Hackett was a native of Tyrone County, Ireland, but came to Canada quite early in life, settling first in the county of Peel. He was married to Miss Margaret Anderson 56 years ago and shortly after his marriage moved to Hockley, where he spent the remainder of his days. He was a man of industrious habits and made a success of his business. As a neighbor and citizen he enjoyed the esteem of the community and his memory will be warmly cherished by all who knew him intimately. He was a man of sterling qualities, upright in his private dealings and public spirited in matters that affected the well-being of the church or community. He leaves to mourn the loss of a kind husband and father, a widow and a family of three sons and two daughters. The latter are John, living in Oregon, Robert J., of Hockley, Dr. W. T., a dentist in Winnipeg, Mrs. Halbert and Miss Annie Hackett, of Toronto. The late Mr. Hackett had been a member of the Orange Order for upwards of sixty years and was buried with full Orange honors. A large number of the brethren of Hockley and neighboring lodges attended the funeral in regalia and united in the impressive burial service of the Order over the open grave. The funeral, which was held from his late residence in Hockley to Wesley Church Cemetery on Saturday afternoon, was attended by a large number of sorrowing friends and acquaintances. The deceased was a staunch member of the Methodist Church and the funeral service was held in the Methodist church, Hockley, where he had worshipped for many years. His late pastor, Rev. J. W. Dudgeon, of Rosemont, officiated and was assisted by his former pastor, Rev. Mr. Belfry, of Tottenham, and Rev. J. A. Black, Presbyterian minister at Mono Mills. The pallbearers were Messrs. W. L. Laverty, Wm. McFarland, Wm. Fleming, John Lindsay, Geo. Mills and Robt. Moffatt. Among those who attended the funeral from a distance were Dr. W. T. Hackett, of Winnipeg, a son, Dr. J. T. Hackett, of Weston, a nephew, Mrs. T. G. Rainsberry and Mr. W. T. Hackett, of Petrolia, Miss L. E. Sloan and Mr. R. E. Hamilton, Toronto, and Mr. S. J. Halbert, of Markdale.

Orangeville Banner, November 19, 1914: JOHN HACKETT DEAD HOCKLEY LOSES ONE OF ITS OLDEST CITIZENS. Hockley Village lost one of its oldest residents on Friday last in the person of Mr. John Hackett, who ran a general store in the village for 35 years. Deceased was 78 years of age and had been in failing health for four or five years. The late Mr. Hackett was a native of Tyrone, Ireland, and came to Canada when about 16 years of age. He first embarked in business as a general merchant in Campbell's Cross, in Peel County, moving from that place to Hockley over 35 years ago.

Orangeville Sun, February 1, 1894, page 2 - At Rest At 11 o'clock on the night of Tuesday, 23rd inst. the Angel of Death released Mrs. Thos. DUKE of her earthly cares forever. Deceased, who was a daughter of Jno. Wilson, Esq., county Tyrone, Ireland, was born in Aug.1802, and was therefore 98 years and 5 months old at the time of herdeparture. She was married to Thos. Duke, of the same county and they emigrated to Canada over fifty years ago and settled on the place where she has remained ever since, being lot 2, con. 6, Mono. Here by hard work and carefulness they made a comfortable home for themselves and family. They were blessed with eight children, four sons and four daughters, one of the latter having crossed the River before her. About 40 years ago death robbed her of a loving and affectionate husband. She has always been blessed with exceedingly good health until last autumn, when time began to do its work and rob her of her former strength. She took to bed about six weeks ago, and though she knew that death was fast approaching she was quite reconciled, and instead of murmuring and complaining she was continually praying for the Lord to release that she might be permitted to enter those glorious realms above. All that loving friends could do to comfort her and make her last hours happy. The end was really a peaceful and happy one, and one well suited to the Christian life lived. After having said farewell to her dear ones she whispered a faint prayer, "Come Lord, I'm waiting," and fell asleep to awake no more in time. The large number of friends and acquaintances who assembled to the funeral on Thursday, to pay their last respects to the departed showed the high esteem in which she was held by all. The sermon was preached in St. John's church by Rev. A. C. Watt. He took his text from I Cor. XV.20, from which he made many impressive remarks, dwelling at length on the devoted life and Christian death of the departed, and urged all to follow the good example set by her. May her spirit rest in peace.
