Born 1799 in Northumberland, England. Died 21 Jun 1879 in Harvey. Buried in Harvey Settlement Cemetery. Occupation Farmer. Religion Presbyterian.

   

John Carmichael and his wife Margaret Hume were married in England, and their second son, Samuel died in England.   John and Margaret and two small sons, James and Robert came to New Brunswick in 1837 with the first settlers to Harvey.   Margaret's sister, Mary Hume and infant daughter Jane, came with the Carmichaels.   (Mary Hume married James Craig on 14 Dec 1841.)

   

The Carmichaels settled on Lot 20W and 19E, 100 acres of land.   The lot is an unusual shape with the highway going through it, so part of the lot is on each side of the highway.   The house and barn were built on lot 20W.   (Land Grant 1851/12/19, Vol KL, No. 4949)

   

According to the Return of the Harvey Settlement statistical report dated 7 Nov 1840, John had 5 acres in crops in 1840 with 9 acres chopped and ready for crops next year; he produced 30 bu. oats, 7 bu. wheat, 12 bu. barley and other grain, 250 bu. potatoes; had 2 swine; and had built a dwelling house.

Statistical Return of the Harvey Settlement for the year 1847 indicated that John was a "turner" (trade independent of the occupation of land); there were 8 in the family; they had 1 cow, 2 oxen, 6 sheep, 3 swine, 2 young cattle, and produced 8 tons hay and straw, 150 bu. potatoes and 6 bu. wheat.   Cleared 19 acres of arable land and 2 acres pasture.   Estimated value of land 45 pounds; value of buildings 9 pounds; value of stock 21 pounds and value of crops 33 pounds, for a total estimated value of 108 pounds.

   

According to the 1861 Census, they employed 3 males and 1 female.   Owned or occupied 60 acres of improved land and 76 acres unimproved.   Cash value of farm was 130 pounds, value of implements and machinery, 6 pounds.   They had 2 horses, 3 milch cows, 2 working oxen, 2 other neat cattle, 12 sheep, 3 swine, and slaughtered 550 lbs. of pork.   Produced 160 lb. butter, 30 lb. wool, 9 tons hay, 150 bu. oats, 40 bu. buckwheat, 20 bu. timothy, 100 bu. turnips and 60 bu. potatoes.

Mrs John Carmichael of Harvey Settlement died Saturday evening.   She appeared to be in usual health up to a few moments of her decease.   Just after finishing her tea, she complained of a severe pain in the region of the stomach, and so intense did it become, that she told those about her that unless she could have a doctor or get immediate relief she could not live.   She had but uttered the words when she leaned forward and fell to the floor.   She was immediately raised up and it was found life extinct.   Mrs Carmichael was about 70 years of age and one of the first that made for themselves home in Harvey    ("Farmer")

Diphtheria Scourge

   

Three Deaths in the Wood Family at Tweedside--Others Expected.

   

Our Harvey correspondent writing Jan. 17th, says:

   

Mrs Wood of Tweedside, wife of Peter C. Wood, who died of diphtheria on Monday, died of the same disease yesterday morning.   Their eldest child also died on Wednesday.   The remaining child, which is about three months old is not expected to recover.   This child and an invalid sister of the late Mr Wood, are the sole survivors of the household.   Mrs F. V. Taylor, a trained nurse, was sent from Fredericton yesterday morning, but Mrs Wood was dead when she arrived.   The deceased lady was the eldest daughter of the late James Nesbitt of Tweedside, and was about 30 years of age.

   

The people here are appalled by the dreadful work of the disease and every effort is being made to prevent its spreading.

 

   

Family Wiped Out

   

Awful Scourge of Diphtheria at Tweedside

   

Harvey Station, York County, Jan. 18 -- A whole family, father, mother and two children, have been cut off by diphtheria in Tweedside.   On Friday evening Peter C. Wood contracted the disease and died Monday, the elder child died Tuesday and Mrs Wood died on Thursday morning and the younger child a few hours later.   The disease is of the most violent type and proved quickly fatal in spite of the best methods of treatment.   During the illness of the family their friends and neighbours prepared and brought food and other things necessary, but did not dare enter the house, and the doctor was unable to obtain the nursing required for his patients.   Mrs Nesbitt, Mrs Wood's mother, did everything she could to care for them, but she soon became exhausted.   Some of the parish officers and others, when they became aware of the state of affairs on Wednesday, joined together and wired Dr. Mullin of Fredericton, asking him to send a trained nurse for Mrs Wood and the child.   The doctor at once complied and the nurse arrived Thursday morning only to find Mrs Wood dead and the child dying.

   

Two other families in Tweedside, who had the disease are all recovering, and there has been no further spread of the disease.

    T

he dreadful occurrence has cast a deep gloom over the entire community and much sorrow is expressed, as the young couple had many friends and were highly respected.

 

   

They had the following children:

  71   i.   Charles George Wood

  72   ii.   Bertha May Wood
