FRENCH, Mrs. Benjamin
QUINLAND, Elizabeth
Evening Telegram    March 30, 1896 (Monday)

Brigus Jottings. Death has been very busy here during the past month, carrying off more than a dozen of the population since March came in, mostly young children. The two most recent deaths, and most deserving of notice, present a most remarkable contrast - the one, an old lady whose years had long passed the allotted span, having attained the venerable age of ninety-five; the other, a young and beautiful woman, who had not yet reached the meridian of life, being only thirty-two. The old lady referred to, Mrs. Elizabeth Quinlan, retained the use of her faculties up to the last, and on the morning of her death eat her breakfast as heartily as ever, an hour or so after which she suddenly expired. She had been a widow for nearly fifty years, being one of very many caused by the loss of the Bickley, John Penney, master, coming home from Labrador with a ship full of freighters in the Fall of 1847. Brigus was a long time recovering from the effects of that sad calamity. Whole families were swept away; widows and orphans abounded everywhere, and scarcely a house but mourned the loss of husband, son, brother or sister, and in many instances all combined. The lately deceased Mrs. Quinlan was one of these; her husband, three sons and a brother having gone down in the ill-fated Bickley, leaving her with a small boy and two or three little girls destitute. However, she struggled bravely to maintain the dear ones left to her, keeping them always around her, and her only remaining son since he came to man's estate has nobly repaid his debt of gratitude to her for her hard struggle during the days of his childhood by the care and attention he gave her in her old age. Full of years, she was yesterday borne to the grave, followed by her grandchildren and a great number of relatives and friends. Another funeral took place in the afternoon of the same day, that of Mrs. Benjamin French, the young woman above mentioned, which was of a much more saddening nature. She was only in the bloom of life, and leaves a husband with six small children, the eldest of whom is only thirteen years, to mourn the very sad loss of an affectionate wife and loving mother.

Loss of the Ocean Friend. Feelings of Sadness in Carbonear.
(To the Editor of the Colonist). Carbonear, Sept. 23rd, 1887. Sir, - You will, no doubt, be sorry to learn that a feeling of sad gloom hangs over our town, owing to the loss of the Ocean Friend - a schr. of some 80 tons. The vessel, which was only a little over six years old, and of American build, left for the bank fishery about eight weeks ago, having on board fourteen men and a boy (not sixteen as reported in your columns Wednesday). ...
On the 15th inst., a telegram was received from Burin by the owner, W. Duff, Esq., of the firm Messers Duff & Balmer [sic], stating that the schooner was lost on the Grand Bank. This report was confirmed on the 21st, by Capt. Moore, of the schooner Lizzie, of Heart's Content, who stated he was on board the wreck on the 6th; but no bodies were to be seen. ...
In consequence of this calamity, ten poor women are left widows, and twenty-four children fatherless. ...
The names of the crew are as follows: - Robert Wareham, of Salmon Cove, Conception bay, who leaves an aged mother, a wife and six children. This man's brother was lost with wife and family on the White Bear Islands, two years ago. Simon Luther, of Carbonear, leaves a widow and three children. Robert Penny (Carbonear), a widow and five children. His son, a boy of fourteen, was also lost. Thomas Howell (Carbonear), a widow and two children; Thomas Clark (Carbonear), a widow and four children; Reubin Pike (Carbonear), a widow and two children; Jourdain Pike (Carbonear), a widow and one child; Richard Penny (Carbonear), a widow and one child; William Penny (Carbonear), and Noah Hull, of Trinity Bay, each leaves a widow. Reubin French, Thomas Power, Nehemiah Ash, and Edward Penny (captain), all of Carbonear, were unmarried.
To add to the sadness of this recital, two of these poor women are shortly expecting an addition to their poor fatherless families. The eldest of the children is not more than twelve years of age. ...
