Hugh McGrattan, Sr.
Hugh McGrattan, Sr., died at his home on North Main Street at 5 o'clock Thursday morning, Feb. 1, being in the 77th year of his age.
For many years a respected citizen of this town and county, his life has a peculiar interest from the fact that he was an actor in one of the most stirring episodes of American history, that attending the early development of the oil industry and the birth of the Standard Oil Company.
He was born in St. George, New Brunswick, Feb. 25, 1829, of Irish parentage, and at the age of twenty removed to Bangor, Maine, where on July 6, 1854, he was married to Miss Sarah Campbell. Later he went to Olean, New York, and on the discovery of oil in Western Pennsylvania, to the south of him, he was led thither about 1860. He became one of the pioneers in the development of the industry, and helped to sink some of the very first wells. The whole country was excited and speculation was rife. Oil had never been refined for illuminating purposes, and the world was just waking up to its possibilities. The times were reckless and exciting, and fortunes frequently changed hands over night.
Mr. McGrattan was intimately associated with many men who are now high in the councils of Standard Oil. On account of the uncertainties of the oil business, he began to cast about for a suitable home for his family, and decided on Parker county, Texas, whence he removed, in 1879, settling on the farm, which the family still own, a few miles northeast of Weatherford. For a good many years the family home has been in Weatherford. The wife died here in 1888.
Mr. McGrattan was a sturdy, blunt, droll man, quiet and retiring, who made friends and kept them. He leaves four daughters, three of whom are at home and one, Mrs. J. W. Weatherford, lives at Flagstaff, Arizona; and three sons, who are engaged in the mercantile and cotton gin business in this city. His two brothers survive in the old home town in New Brunswick.

Elizabeth Stafford (Mullin)
The death of Mary Stafford (Mullin) of Fredericton, wife of the late William Stafford occurred on May 6, 2005 at Rocmaura Nursing Home, Saint John, New Brunswick. Born in St. George, N.B., Mary was the daughter of the late Michael and Naomi (Maher) Mullin.
Mary embraced life with love, compassion, service as well as her deep faith as a lifelong Roman Catholic. As a wife, mother, Veteran of WWII, a member of the CWL for 50 years, as a volunteer for many charitable causes and above all, as someone who dedicated her life to the care of children.
Mary spent her early years of marriage with her husband Bill and their 3 sons in Fredericton. When they moved to London, Ontario Mary pursued her desire to help and nurture children by furthering her education in Childhood studies. She completed courses on the care of Special Needs Children and was also certified at Mohawk College of Applied Arts and Technology in early Childhood Education. She also trained at the Children’s Psychiatric Research Institute in London.
When Mary and Bill and their family returned to Fredericton in 1979, she became the owner and administrator of the House of Children Daycare, a business, which she operated for 20 years. At House of Children, Mary introduced the Montessori program into the daycare curriculum. But her greatest joy was to surround herself with the many children that parents happily entrusted in her care.
Mary had several hobbies, including Genealogy studies. The study of family origins interested her so much that she made 3 excursions to Ireland to research her family history in the completion of the Mullin family tree. Mary also enjoyed creative writing and listening to classical music.
Sadly, Mary was predeceased by her husband, parents, son William, daughter Mary Suzanne, brothers Hubert, Edwin, Joseph, John, & sister Beatrice.

To remember Mary, is to remember her surrounded by children and to see these children through Mary’s eyes, the following quote will illustrate just what she saw. “Why do we smile when we see a child? Perhaps it’s because we see someone whose smile for us, we know to be fully genuine. And the child – soul inside us smiles wistfully in recognition. “
Visitation will be held at McAdam’s Select Community Funeral Home on Monday, May 9th, 2005 from 6-9 pm.

Brandon and Emily McGee and Tess Dell, to whom she was devoted. She is also
survived by a supportive son-in-law David Dell and a daughter-in-law, Philene
McGee, several cousins, many friends, and several relatives by
A nurse by choice, she leaves a legacy of caring and dedication to family, friends, patients and the profession she honored. A graduate of the Victoria Public Hospital in 1953, where her classmates became her sisters. In 1976 she earned a Bachelor of Nursing degree, and a Master of Arts in 1988. A Beaverbrook scholar, she was the recipient of a Honorary Doctor of Science Degree from UNB and she gave the Convocational address at UNBSJ in 1997. She served as a research associate and on the Graduate Academic Unit of the Faculty of Nursing, UNB.
A pioneer nurse in New Brunswick in psychiatric and addiction nursing, she was one of the first to set up an independent practice. An advocate and pioneer for patient's rights in New Brunswick and the entrepreneurship of nurses, she gave free and freely of her professional skills, in writings, workshops and addresses. Her volunteer work with student nurses was commendable.
An author, her major publications included six nursing histories, and the first book written on patient's rights in the province. An honorary president of the Victoria Public Hospital Nurses Alumnae, Arlee spearheaded many of their projects and reunions. Her energetic work to preserve and promote the history of New Brunswick nurses resulted in the founding and operation of the Nurses Association of New Brunswick, Nursing History Resource Center and work as the nurse's archivist. She was commended for her work on the first Alcohol and Drug Dependency Commission of N.B. and received a merit award from the Nurses Association of New Brunswick. She was honored at Government House in June 2000 when the Nurses Association named the nurse's stained glass window at 175 Regent Street 'The Arlee Hoyt McGee Window'.

She was Honorary President of the CIBC Run for the Cure, 2002. She was a member of Saint Andrews Presbyterian Church. She sang in the senior choir since 1955 and formed close attachments with her church family.
Her proudest accomplishment was a book of poems written when she was ill. Lifelines touched the lives of many nurses and patients. She was a committed and trusting friend particularly to those she helped in addiction, in employee assistance programs and patients rights, but dedication to her family always came first. As her family, we take comfort in knowing that her spirit for life will be transformed in those whose lives she touched but like most nurses we know that the extent of her good deeds will never be known.
At Arlee's request, there will be no visitation or floral tributes. Donations to a Nursing History scholarship fund for nurses, which will be established in her name, would be appreciated, made payable to the Faculty of Nursing, University of New Brunswick.

St. George man killed in B.C.
ST. GEORGE – A young St. George man who went to British Columbia to find work was fatally stabbed at his apartment building in Coquitlam shortly before midnight Friday.
Family and friends of 29-year-old Brian Sinclair were shocked and saddened when they learned of his untimely death Saturday.
He and his fiancée, Jill Hatt, have a seven-year-old son, Ethan. Hatt and the boy planned to move out west to join Sinclair. Sinclair was the son of John and Frances Sinclair, of Digdeguash, and is also survived by two brothers, Leonard and Kevin.
A brief press release issued by the Coquitlam RCMP on the weekend said the police responded to a report of a disturbance in an apartment in the 500 block of Shaw Avenue in Coquitlam shortly before midnight Friday.
Their investigation revealed that a man in his 20s had been attacked in the building.
He was rushed to hospital by ambulance but died of the injuries sustained in the attack. Members of the Integrated Homicide Investigative Team and Coquitlam RCMP Serious Crime Unit are investigating.
The release noted that cause of death and the identity of the victim were being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
After checking with the investigating officers Monday, Cst. Dave Babineau of Coquitlam RCMP told the Courier the police would not be releasing any further information about the incident at this time.
“The information that we have in the press release is it for now because, as you can understand, we’re in the very early stages of the investigation and we certainly wouldn’t want to jeopardize anything.”
Cst. Babineau said the media in B.C. are also anxious for further information as they are any time there is a death involving foul play. He said the RCMP understand that and will release information as soon as they know for a fact that it will not impede the investigation.
“I have just spoken to our investigators here and I know, for a fact, that the moment they have something that they can release they’re going to get a hold of me. Information will be released as soon as we have it. We may not release anything for days - maybe even weeks. It depends on how the investigation is going.
“There are three things we have to look out for. We have to look out for the victim’s family when we’re dealing with the media and we have to look out for the investigation itself - not to say anything that could impede or set it off in a different direction - and we have to look out for a possible trial in the future.”
Cst. Babineau said the investigators had spoken to a person of interest following the incident, but that person has been released and is not a suspect.
As news of the attack reached people in Charlotte County who knew Sinclair, there was a feeling of shock that such a terrible thing had happened to someone who had just gone out west to find work.
Sinclair had been working locally for Gordie Eldridge in the aquaculture industry, and his former employer described him as a good fellow. Eldridge said it was after they lost their business that Sinclair went out west, but he had seen him when he came home to St. George for a couple of weeks at Christmas.
Until a week ago, Hatt had been employed at the Charlotte County Credit Union in Blacks Harbour, but she had handed in her notice so she and Ethan could join Sinclair.
Tobi Taylor, manager of the Credit Union, said they were planning on going to Calgary, where Hatt has a sister.
She described Sinclair as a gentle soul who would help anyone and added, “It is horrible. It is just a complete shock. This does not happen to people here. It is senseless. Everybody that knew Brian knew he would just help anybody. He was someone that helped out if you asked.”
Although full details of what happened Friday night have yet to be released, the family consider Sinclair a hero.
One family member described him as a great worker who was just trying to make money to support his family.
She said he had never been in a big city before, and never realized anybody would want to hurt him, while a family friend described him as a wonderful person.
A statement issued by a family member, Gail Sinclair, Tuesday morning said, “While saving the life of a friend, Brian Sinclair lost his life in Vancouver, B.C., on January 21.
“Brian, being the type of guy he was, protected the life of a friend, and was later attacked in his apartment complex.
“At the end of this week, Brian was moving to Calgary, where his fiancée and seven-year-old son were going to join him to start their new life together.”
At the Saint John Regional Hospital, following a brief illness, on December 18, 2005, Mrs. Hildegard “Hilda” (Gomke) Lambert, wife of the late John Allen Lambert Sr., of L’Etang, NB. Born in Germany on September 19, 1943, she was a daughter of the late Herbert and Emma (Traichel) Gomke. A loving mother and grandmother, she is survived by two sons, Norman (Brenda) Lambert of Blacks Harbour, and John Lambert Jr. of L’Etang, NB; three grandchildren, Angel, Matthew and Johnathan; two brothers, Dieter (Patsy) Gomke and Herbert (Linda) Gomke, both of Saint John; several nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased, besides her husband, by one son, David Keith Lambert and two brothers, Guido and William.
Hilda loved cooking and crocheting and was an avid gardener. She loved fishing and was a member of the Fundy Bay Seniors.

Deceased: Judge Cameron exercised friendly persuasion
Date: September 21, 2004
Ronald G. Cameron, who as a Placer Superior Court judge was known for his skill at bringing warring parties in civil cases together, is dead at 87.
The cause was complications from pneumonia, said one of his daughters, Jane Cameron. He died Sept. 14 in Sutter Roseville Medical Center.
Judge Cameron resolved so many cases before trial that by the time he retired in 1980 he was known as the "settlement judge." He was so persuasive at twisting arms that the Placer County Bar Association sometimes would jokingly present a white sling to attorneys preparing for a pretrial conference. It was labeled: "Judge Ronald G. Cameron's Broken Arm Settlement Sling."
Ronald Greenlaw Cameron was born in Letite, New Brunswick, Canada, son of Mildred and Bertram G. Cameron. He was 3 years old when they moved to California, his daughter said.
Reared in Los Angeles, he graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles, with a bachelor's degree in political science before joining the Army during World War II. He left the service as a captain, and then attended law school at the University of Southern California, graduating in 1948.
After law school, he practiced briefly with a Los Angeles law firm. He relocated to Merced, then to Auburn, working in the offices of attorney C. Ray Robinson.
Active in Democratic Party politics, he was elected to the state Senate in 1959 to succeed Harold T. "Bizz" Johnson, who had just won a seat in Congress. Friends say Judge Cameron honed his negotiating skills there.
As a senator, he helped pass legislation for the 1960 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley.
Gov. Edmund G. "Pat" Brown appointed him to the Placer Superior Court in 1963.
Though known as the "settlement judge," his favorite duty was overseeing all adoptions in Placer County, about three a week at the time. "It's difficult to reach a civil settlement and make both sides happy," he told an interviewer in 1980, "but in adoptions everyone is happy. It is the positive side of life. The kids and their parents still come back to me, bring their cameras and take photographs."
Judge Cameron was married three times. His first wife, the former Irene Madaras, died Dec. 8, 1962, when a fire destroyed the family's home outside Auburn. The judge and the couple's two daughters narrowly escaped. His marriage to Lorraine Chappell ended in divorce in 1968. His third wife, Sandy Warwick Cameron, died Nov. 17, 2002.
In retirement, Judge Cameron accepted temporary judicial assignments, serving in courtrooms up and down the state.
"He also played a lot of golf and was a voracious reader of mysteries,"
said longtime pal Joe Carroll, who writes a weekly column for the Auburn Sentinel newspaper.
"Ron was a guy who always remembered everybody's name; he had that gift," Carroll said. "He was real gregarious, but in a subdued sort of way. He was a great hand shaker, but not a back slapper."
