Copied from newspaper obituary (1923)

   

Mrs Alexander Hay

   

The death of Frances D., beloved wife of Alexander Hay, occurred at her home on the Valley Road, January 18th, aged seventy one years.   Frances Dunlop Hay was born at Caverhill, February 22, 1852, the daughter of the late Mr and Mrs David Dunlop of Upper Caverhill, York county.   She was united in marriage with Alex Hay of the Parish of Manners Sutton, York county, April 9th 1873.

   

Of this union six children were born, four of whom survive, Mrs Alex Kyle of Calais, Mrs Frank Ham of Lewiston, Mrs Alfred Thomas of St. Stephen and Frederick B. at home.   Seventeen grandchildren and one brother, Simpson C. Dunlop of Skowhegan, Me., also survive her.

   

She had been in failing health for some months and all that loving hands could do could not prolong her life and she passed peacefully away.

   

Devoted to her home circle, her life had been a quiet one but her influence for good was manifest in the home and all with whom she was associated.

   

The funeral service was held at her home Friday last by Rev. Dr. W. C. Gorcher, assisted by Rev. W. W. Malcolm, interment being made in the St. Stephen Cemetery.   The funeral was largely attended.   To the aged husband and other sorrowing ones general sympathy is extended.

   

In their early married life, Mr and Mrs Hay united with the Presbyterian church at Harvey Settlement where they resided fifteen years before coming to St. Stephen.

From newspaper obituary - 1943:

   

Died in Vancouver.   Robert Herbert Robison, Formerly of Harvey Station, Had Lived in Vancouver 40 Years.

   

Harvey Station, NB, Dec 30 -- Word has been received here of the death on Dec 8th of Robert Herbert Robison at his home, 1133 Hornby Street, Vancouver, BC.

   

Mr Robison was born at Harvey Station on Nov 30th, 1861, a son of pioneer residents of Harvey, Marshall and Mary (Herbert) Robison.

   

About forty years ago he took up residence in Vancouver, where he made many friends who learned of his death with genuine regret.   He had been in failing health for about a month but his death came as a shock.   He is survived by his wife, formerly Miss Emily Little, of Coburn, two sons, Jeffrey and Roy Robison, Vancouver; five daughters, Mrs Harry Homewood of Duncan, BC, Mrs James McCrae of Port Alice, BC, Mrs John McCallum of Nanaimo, BC, Mrs John Walker and Mrs C. W. Oliver of Vancouver; several grandchildren including three grandsons in the R.C.A.F., Robert Homewood, Jeffrey McCrae and Jack Walker; and one brother, Kenneth J. Robison, Vancouver.

   

The funeral was held on Saturday in Vancouver West, with Dr. McCall of St. Andrew's Wesley United Church officiating, Mr Robison having been a faithful member of that church for many years.   Dr. McCall referred to the many good qualities of the deceased and a good life fittingly ended.   The pallbearers were Kenneth, Jeffrey and Roy Robison, John McCallum, John Walker and A. McMillan.   The floral tributes were many and beautiful.   Burial was made in the family plot in Mountain View Cemetery beside a little daughter Clara, who died several years ago.
