The funeral was held Monday afternoon with prayers at the home and services in the Methodist church. . . . burial was in the family lot beside her husband in the old Protestant cemetery. Music was finely rendered by a quartet. . . . There was a large floral offering of beautiful sets and pieces bearing silent testimony of the love and esteem in which this mother, neighbor, and friend was held. . . . She had been a sufferer from heart trouble and disease of the nerves for several years yet was cheerful and happy and enjoyed life at her pleasant home where her daughter, Mrs. Caroline Wing lovingly ministered to her care during her declining years. Mrs. McKelvey was one of the oldest members of the Methodist church and her life was one of constant Christian service, guided by the three virtues - Faith, Hope, and Charity. She is at rest. Her faithful, loving work is ended, but such a life, lived for so many years in one community lives on in memory and its influence reaches out to make mankind better and life more worth the living. Her children and children's children shall rise up and call her blessed. PASSES 83D BIRTHDAY - Mrs. Helen McKelvey reaches this advanced age - Mind keen and active and memory charming with the happenings of long ago.
Mrs. Helen McKelvey passed her 83d birthday, Monday the 18th (of March, 1918). She enjoyed the calls of friends and entertained them with many interesting happenings in her long and active life. Her memory is remarkable and she takes great interest in the happenings of today, being especially well posted on the war. She is outspoken in her Americanism and believes in that old time patriotism and love of country that prompted the early settlers to give their all for freedom and independence.
She is of Scotch-English parentage, her mother being English, born in the city of London, and her father Scotch, born among the freedom echoing hills of "Bonnie Scotland."
Her father and mother came to Canada in childhood. Her father was for many years in the employ of the Hudson Bay Co. and experienced many of the hardships incident to the work of the company in reaching out into the wilderness and establishing their posts. He was one of those sturdy old pioneers who helped to plant happy homes and beautiful villages in the wilderness and pave the way for the wonderful development of this country - a forerunner in the establishment of those principles of freedom and independence that are today shaping the destiny of the world.
Mrs. McKelvey is passing the sunset of her life in her home on Pleasant street, lovingly cared for by her daughter, Mrs. Caroline Wing.
Mrs. McKelvey believes that a long and happy life is due in the main to upright living, a strict observance to regular hours for eating and sleeping.
Four score years and three is a long span of life. To enjoy the blessings of a keen mind and memory for all these years and take an interest in present day happenings is a record few attain. Such is the experience of Mrs. McKelvey and many a helpful lesson can be learned from her life and activities. She is one of those "Mothers in Israel" who bless mankind. Parents: Robert Cromarty Cruickshank and Caroline Glanville Cooke.

She was married to Joseph H. MCKELVEY on 24 Dec 1856 in Leeds, Quebec. GOLDEN WEDDING AN ISLAND POND EVENT - Mr. and Mrs. Joseph H. McKelvey, whose golden wedding, celebrated Christmas eve, was the second event of the kind Island Pond, Vermont has ever known. - (Special dispatch to the Sunday Herald.) ISLAND POND, VERMONT, Dec. 29, 1906. Not often has the celebration of a golden wedding been possible in the village of Island Pond, and only once before, when the 50th anniversary of the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Clark H. Ladd was honored, has there been an event of that nature equalling in popular interest the occasion at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph H. McKelvey, on Christmas eve. when their many relatives and friends, numbering several hundred, assembled to greet this universally respected couple. Joseph McKelvey and Helen Cruikshank were marreid by the Rev. James McConachy at Leeds, Can., just 50 years ago, where their respective fathers had cleared farms from the primeval forest. Soon after the marriage, Mr. and Mrs. McKelvey came to Island Pond, where for about 15 years Mr. McKelvey was engaged in lumber operations, till he purchased the place now known as the McKelvey homestead at Hobson's Mills. Until recently this couple resided at the old homestead, moving last spring to their present home in the village. . . . .All of the surviving children and several of the grandchildren were present, together with William Cruikshank of Inverness, Can., brother of Mrs. McKelvey, and many other relatives. Col. Porter H. Dale reviewed the lives of Mr. and Mrs. McKelvey and extended to them the best wishes of their neighbors and friends. His remarks were substantially as follows: "Mr. and Mrs. McKelvey: The solicitude of your children has given your friends the privelege of rejoicing with you in this rare event. That you are tonight where you have toiled together up the heights of half a century makes this occasion one of unusual interest. Many here never looked upon a scene like this; some can recall but one other, and not but a few times, possibly eight, has such an assembly been possible among the residents of this town. Perhaps you are at first surprised when you think how seldom such an event can take place, and yet as you review the years you will wonder more that it has come to you. Looking back through the long vista you behold countless occasions just like that one fifty years ago at Leeds, Que., when the Rev. James McConachy pronounced Joseph H. McKelvey and Helen Cruikshank man and wife. All throught the years, since then you have observed events like that, and yet as you look again how many of them you have seen covered by the fragments of hopes and the ashes of hearts! Thus you are brought to realize how true it is when we, thinking of your lives, say to you, tonight, "The way is long, O friends! But life is sweet, so sweet, To wander hand in hand Where overhead the swaying branches meet, And birds sing joyous songs, by soft winds fanned, And velvet grasses kiss your wayworn feet, Till just beyond you, where the river bends, You find the summer-time that never ends." We must remind you of what, no doubt, you have frequently said of yourselves, that you are fortunate to have avoided, through this long period, the fatalities of illness and disaster. It appears to us that you have in a marked degree attained the objects for which you hoped at the start. You never desired a life of idleness, the Scotch-Irish ancestry behind you made you strong of mind and muscle, and you expected to labor for what you obtained, therefore you have not lived in complaint nor met failure. ". . . . Your fathers came over the sea and cut for themselves a farm out of the primeval forests of Canada. From such and ancestry you obtained the constitutions to meet the conditions as they existed, nearly forty five years ago, when you went into the uncut forests of this town for Nathan L. Woodbury. Some of us with gray hair can recall the old boarding house up the river, the birthplace of some of your children, and where we, as children, used to rest when on our forest expeditions years after you had moved away from it. "Since thirty years ago you took the farm which was till recently your home, it is doubtful if you realize how many kindly thoughts and pleasant words of you were awakened as the people of this community passed on the railway by your abode. As you think, sir, of the men on the railroad with whom you have exchanged salutes through all these years, you see again many a hand, some vanished now, but all of which waved to you the heart's goodwill. As you think of all that has taken place with you from the time Hobson's mills were built till the grass grew up the meadows where the trees fell and the mills were gone, you recall some illness and bereavement, but, in general, you have so lived yourselves that you could look upon the great world about you as you beheld the railway trains, and from it, as from them, you have been saluted only with the cheerful hand and the friendly smile. ". . . . And now for those who represent your family, to whom you have taught the sacred meaning of the words "Father," "Mother," and the church to which you have given long and consistent service, and the community from which you have gained universal friendship and respect, we wish you, the aged bride and groom of this event, many returns fo the merriest Christmas and the happiest New Year of all that you have known through half a century." To Col. Dale's remarks, the Rev. C.D. Lance, make a very happy and appropriate response in behalf of the family. Dainty refreshments were then served after which all enjoyed a social hour, including a solo by Mr. Pottle. In the fifty years of the married life of Mr. and Mrs. McKelvey eight children were born to them, four sons and four daughters, all living, except the eldest son and youngest daughter. They took up their residence in this town in 1862 and all these years have been honored and respected as worthy citizens. They are well preserved, and active, and a large circle of friends hope they may celebrate many more anniversaries, and wish them continued years of happiness and prosperity. They were most bountifully remembered by thier children and grandchildren, who presented them with $105 in gold coin, and friends added $56, also in gold. Then there was a handsome coat presented to Mrs. McKelvey by the grandchildren and Mrs. R.A. McKelvey, and the neighbors on Pleasant Street presented her with a chair. There was also a morris chair from S.D. Hobson and family, a chair from the Methodist church friends, a pair of silver loving cups from D. Stern and wife, and several other gifts, including books, pictures, rugs, linen, etc. Children were: Caroline Glanville MCKELVEY, Margaret Stevenson MCKELVEY , Alexander MCKELVEY, Robert Cromarty MCKELVEY, William Alexander MCKELVEY , Helen Augusta MCKELVEY, George Banks MCKELVEY, Alma Eva MCKELVEY, Infant MCKELVEY.

bullet James Cromarty Cruickshank Photo was born on 7 Jul 1845 in Maple Hill, Quebec. He died on 24 May 1872 in Leeds, Quebec. He was buried in St. James Cemetery, Leeds, Quebec. James pursued his education at Richmond College, McGill and Montreal Presbyterian College, planning someday to be a minister. His studies were interrupted by a severe attack of bronchitis. In 1867, to earn money to further his education, he taught school in Chatham, earning $350 for one term. While teaching there, he became quite ill, and was diagnosed with a combination of heart disease and consumption. His doctor ordered him to sleep with wet clothes on his chest at night and had him use plaster which blistered raw each side of his chest. Mixed with other medicines, he took three pints of brandy and whiskey. Seeking a cure for his condition, James set sail for Buenos Aires November 26, 1869, after having waited a week for favorable winds. He caught cold on the voyage and was both seasick and lonesome. He began teaching classes about 100 miles outside of Buenos Aires, and wrote to ask his parents for their photographs, as he was afraid he would not see them again. He returned to Leeds in 1871 and died the following year. Caleb Pitkin has (1996) a lock of his hair which was cut from his head before departing for Buenos Aires.

bullet Jean Cruickshank was born in 1803 in South Ronaldsay, Orkney Islands, Scotland. She was baptized in 1803 in South Ronaldsay, Orkney Islands, Scotland. David Raese has found records of a Jean Cruickshank and a James McPherson, whose children were baptized in the county of Inverness, Scotland in the 1820s. This may not be the same Jean Cruickshank. However, Helen Harper, in a letter to Helen Pitkin, suggested that she thought Robert Cromarty Cruickshank's mother might have been named Jeanie McPherson. Although she had the relationship wrong, her recollection of the name supports the likelihood that Robert's sister Jean married James McPherson. Parents: John Cruickshank and Catherine Lyall/Leal.


bullet John Cruickshank was born in 1876. He died in 1945. John was a machinist. Called Jack by the family. Parents: Robert Cromarty Cruickshank and Louise Kincaid.


bullet John Cruickshank was born before 8 Aug 1735 in Thurso, Caithness, Scotland. He was baptized on 8 Aug 1735 in Thurso, Caithness, Scotland. He died in South Ronaldsay, Orkney Islands, Scotland. John was the only Cruickshank child recorded with the given name of John for generations in the counties of Caithness or the Orkney Islands. His marriage to Catherine Lyall apparently occurred later in life, indicating he might have had a childless first marriage or perhaps he was delayed by military service or a career at sea. About 1799, John Cruickshank moved his family from Dunnet, Caithness across the Pentland Firth to the island of South Ronaldsay in the Orkney Islands where his two youngest children were baptized. One of the prominent families on South Ronaldsay was the Cromartie family, several of whom were named Robert Cromartie.

bullet John Yeoman Cruickshank was born on 27 Dec 1842 in Maple Hill, Quebec. He died on 17 Jan 1889. John farmed in Leeds for his entire life, perhaps on his father's farm. It seems that John and his wife were sharing a house with his parents. A letter from his mother to his sister Helen McKelvey illuminates a very difficult living situation. "August 13. Dear Helen, We are well. John has been quite well all haying. They have done all to a few loads but she is crosser than ever. We have not spoken to one another for more than a month and John is never hardly speaking a word for she makes him as bad as herself. The trouble is we are living too long. If I was here by myself I would not bother her long. If we ever see one another again I could tell you a good deal about her and some of her speeches, but I suppose I had better get on to something else. . . . Andrew said he would come to see us this month if possible but he has a poor place to come to when old fury lives here. But he does not believe it as well as you and Joseph do for you both know her and she is so nice to Andrew. . . . I will now conclude by sending our kind love to Joseph and all the family and accept the same from your . . . Mother." John died of acute asthma.

bullet Robert Cromarty Cruickshank Photo was baptized on 28 Sep 1799 in South Ronaldsay, Orkney Islands, Scotland. Baptized at the (Presbyterian) Church of Scotland. He was born on 9 Sep 1800 in Parish Dunnet, Caithness, Scotland. He died on 1 Mar 1885 in Megantic Co., Quebec, Canada. He was buried in Riverside Cemetery, Kinnear's Mills, Quebec. From the Hudson's Bay Company Archives (C.306/fo.3; B.135/g/2,3,4/fo.2,p.2,p.8) comes the information that Robert Crookshanks (sic) was a passenger on board the "Eddystone" in 1818 outbound for Moose Factory. He is listed as a labourer. In 1822-23 he is listed as a middleman in the Moose Factory District. Mr. Cruikshank's name appears in the list of servants discharged and sent to Europe in 1823. Cruikshank's parish was given as "St. Ronaldsha," i.e., Island of South Ronaldsay in the Orkneys.
Mrs. Helen Harper (a gr-granddaugter) wrote in 1982 of the Cruickshank family: "Robert . . . was baptized by the Reverend James Watson in the South Parish of South Ronaldsay, Orkney. Our records show that when Robert returned to the Orkneys (from Canada) in 1823, he found that his mother had died and his brother had gone to Canada. Robert returned to Canada on the first available sailing. On the marriage certificate of Robert and Caroline, Robert signed Robert Crookshanks and Caroline signed Caroline G Cruikshank. . . . There have always been some arguments about the spelling of Cruikshank. John Yeoman (Robert's son) changed the spelling to Cruickshank. My grandfather, and I believe most of the others, spelled it Cruikshanks. This is how Robert spelled it when he signed the Baptism of his son John Yeoman. I have copies of these original documents and signatures. In mother's notes she says that Robert's mother was a highland lassie and her name was Jeanie (she thought that the surname was McPherson). Robert could speak Gaelic. Leaving Caithness about 1801 would correspond to the time of the Highland Clearances. Mother thought that the brother was older came to Ontario and she did not know his Christian name. Cromarty or Cromartie is a very common name in South Ronalday, Orkneys. As far as I can determine, it is an original Orkney name. I have a picture of Robert Cromarty Cruikshanks brother and also a picture of his daughter (a Mrs. Simpson) and her husband."

In 1900 he went by train fo Sawyerville to work as a lumberjack. On March 3 of that year, he met with some misfortune: "We are sorry to hear that Mr. Robert Cruickshank of this place, while working in the employ of Mr. Wm. Cromwell, in the lumber woods a Sawyerville, got badly hurt. It seems that he and another young man, by the name of Knights, chopped down a tree, which, when falling, struck another, a broken part of which flew back, striking both men. Fortunately there was another man near by who at once gave the alarm, and with the assistance of others, carried both men to the camp in an unconscious condition, and for an hour and twenty minutes, Rob remained apparently dead. Dr. McCurdy, of Sawyerville, was immediately sent for, and on his arrival made an examination and found that Knights had his nose broken while Cruickshank had one shoulder badly brused and his skull slightly fractured. He remained unconscious for two days, but his brother James, who at once went from here to see him, reports that, though he is suffering considerable pain, he is being carefully attended by Dr. McCurdy, and is improving satisfactorily."
