LEWIS, Aaron
Daily News   October 10, 1932 (Monday)

Holyrood, October 7th - One of the most widely known and respected citizens of Holyrood in the person of Aaron Lewis passed away at his late residence on Sunday evening October 2nd at the advanced age of 81 years. Although in failing health for almost twelve months, his death came as a shock to his many friends and neighbors. The deceased had been a resident of Holyrood all his life, and had always taken an active part in the welfare of the community. In early life he was a fisherman and a boat master, and fished to the westward and at Labrador. Later he engaged in Railway building and section work, and finally settled at farming and local fishing. In every sense of the word a good man has passed out - one who feared his God, reverenced his priests and loved his fellowmen. His ancestors came from the Channel Islands and settled in Holyrood somewhere about 150 years ago. They were great big, burly and stalwart men with granite constitution and giant-like frames, and Aaron was typical of them, a fine square man of splendid physique - never a sick day in his life, until stricken with the last illness, and he was reconciled as he forebode his end was in sight. His beloved pastor Rev. Joseph Peddle was called several times to see the sick man, and administered to him the last sacraments of Holy Church. His funeral took place on Tuesday evening at half past two o'clock from his late home to the Church of Holy Cross.
He was a charter member of the Star of the Sea Association, and the brothers paid the last tribute of respect to a worthy brother member by attending his funeral in processional order. The funeral which was a large one was augmented by a number of friends and relatives from Holyrood and the city, who came to pay their respects and last honours to the dead man. Undertaker Dunphy conducted the funeral arrangements, in his usual reverent and solemn manner. At the Church the funeral service was recited by Rev. Father Peddle, and this being ended the procession reformed and moved to the central cemetery where the remains were reverently laid in the family plot. The late Mr. Lewis leaves a widow, one sister, and numbers of nephews and nieces to mourn his loss. To all of whom our sincere sympathy goes forth.

LEWIS, Mrs. Sarah
The Evening Telegram   March 9, 1931 (Monday)

Obituary. Mrs. Sarah Lewis, Newtown, Holyrood. Mrs. Sarah Lewis, beloved wife of Aaron Lewis, passed to the Great Beyond on February 11th, 1931. The deceased was possessed of robust health until four years ago when symptoms of that dread disease cancer developed, and the late Dr. Dwyer committed her to the General Hospital, St. John's, for treatment. After a lengthened stay there she came home apparently restored to health. She relapsed after a year, and on several occasions since was compelled to seek treatment again at the hospital until the medical men there lost all hope, and she was returned home last November incurable to await the inevitable end.
Born at Chapel's Cove 61 years ago, the daughter of the late William and Margaret Crawley. She was married thirty-five years ago to Mr. Aaron Lewis, and lived on the Salmonier Line ever since, where with painstaking industry and tireless hard work, she helped to build up a happy and thriving homestead, and to raise the large family of six sons and two daughters. A good woman has gone forever from Salmonier Road - one that loved her church and reverenced her priest - a willing worker in parish and community welfare, and the poor had always in her a friend to relieve their wants.
During her illness she was visited by her beloved pastor Fr. Finn and was fortified and strengthened in her last days by his visits and ministrations to give her the last sacraments. Her funeral took place on February 13th, from her home to the church of Holy Cross. Undertaker Dunphy removed the body which was enclosed in a handsome casket from the room to the hearse in waiting, and then lined up the immensely large funeral procession which included in its ranks a large number of friends and sympathizers from Chapel's Cove, Harbor Main and North Arm, who came to pay their last tribute to the deceased lady and to testify their sympathy and regard for the bereaved family. At the church, Rev, Fr. Finn, P.P., officiated at the funeral service and this finished, the procession reformed and moved to the Central Cemetery where the remains were reverently laid into the family plot beside those of her son Gregory who predeceased her seven years ago. Surviving her to mourn the loss of a good wife and fond mother, are her husband, four sons, John and Aaron, Brooklyn, N.Y.; Bernard, at Rye, N.Y.; and James at home; two daughters, Mrs. Frank La Russell, Rye, N.Y.; Margaret and an adopted daughter May Penney, at home to all of whom we tender our sincere sympathy in their sad bereavement; and may her soul rest in peace.

Loss of the Ocean Friend. Feelings of Sadness in Carbonear.

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.

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. ...
