PEACH, Arthur B.
Daily News    February 25, 1915 (Thursday)

Obituary. Few men were better known to the travelling public than Mr. Arthur B. Peach, the Station Agent at Carbonear. For a few days he has been absent from his post owing to an attack of appendicitis. A preliminary operation was undertaken and appeared to have been successful, but a sudden relapse occurred, and within twelve hours, shortly after noon yesterday, he passed to his eternal rest. Mr. Peach, who was in his 59th year, was a son of the late Rev. John S. Peach, so long the Father of the Methodist Conference of Newfoundland. In his earlier years, he carried on a business in Carbonear, but since the railway reached the town some sixteen years ago he has been in charge of the terminus station. His record speaks for itself, the Reid-Newfoundland Company has many worthy officers, but none more worthy or efficient, more devoted to duty, and more untiring in his efforts on behalf of the Company and the interests of the travelling public than was the deceased.
Mr. A.B. Peach was a scholarly man, a close reader and a deep thinker. Commercial life claimed him, but many who knew him intimately, recognized in him latent powers that, in a congenial soil, would have blossomed and bloomed in the top gardens of literature. Few men were more familiar with the poetry and best prose of the mid-Victorian years; and he had delved deeply into volumes of the earlier ages.
When the Free Press was established in 1901, Mr. Peach became its correspondent, and for the past nine years his weekly letters have appeared in the Daily News. None could read them without being inspired by their cheery optimism, and good-natured comment. His was the power of wielding pen as pointedly as sword, but it was rarely he employed its vigours, preferring to speak kindly of all, or not to speak. His passing involves a great loss to the thousands of readers of the Free press and Daily news, and especially to those abroad, many of whom have learned to regard the "Carbonear Notes" as a weekly letter from home.
Mr. Peach leaves a widow, daughter of Mrs. N. Currie, and sister of Mrs. J. Alex Robinson, Mrs. John S. Currie, M.H.A., and Mr. W.G. Currie; three daughters, Mrs. Alice Miller of New York, Mrs. Maud Jones of Boston, and Mrs. Jerome Barnes of St. John's, and two sons, William Peach of Winnipeg, and Robinson Peach of Carbonear. Two sisters live in Carbonear, Mrs. George Nicholle and Mrs. William Guy, also one brother Mr. James Peach of Rural Retreat. Two other brothers survive, Mr. George Peach of Balmoral, Manitoba, and Mr. Henry B. Peach of the Royal Stores Limited. To all of these the sympathy of all Carbonear, and of a large circle of friends and acquaintances will go out in their bereavement. The funeral will take place at Carbonear, probably on Friday afternoon.

Death. At Carbonear, yesterday, after a short illness, Arthur B. Peach, Station Master, son of the late Rev. John S. Peach.

PEACH, Arthur B.
Daily News   March 1, 1915 (Monday)

Funeral at Carbonear.
At Carbonear on Friday afternoon the mortal remains of Mr. Arthur B. peach were laid to rest in the Methodist cemetery. The funeral was a very large one, and in the ranks were many from St. John's, Harbour Grace, Bay Roberts and elsewhere, who had come to pay their last tribute of respect to one, who for the past sixteen years, had been so familiar a figure to the travelling public. On the casket rested a handsome wreath sent by the train hands and station agents from St. John's to Carbonear, a graceful and sympathetic tribute, greatly prized by the bereaved family. The Orange body, of which Mr. Peach was a Past Master, preceded the hearse. At the graveside the service was conducted by the Rev. F.R. Matthews, B.A., President of the Methodist Conference, and the Rev. Mr. Smith of Victoria.

PEACH, Emily
Harbour Grace Standard   September 9, 1890 (Tuesday)

Sudden Death. A case of sudden death occurred at Carbonear on Friday. Miss Emily Peach, daughter of Rev. J.S. Peach, was out in the field among the hay-makers; about four o'clock in the afternoon, she strolled out into another field to pick some berries. This had been a usage of hers, and no thought was taken of her absence. At six o'clock, at the ringing of the customary bell, she failed to make her appearance, and a servant-girl was sent to seek her. No tidings, however, of her whereabouts could be gleaned, and then a general search was instituted. After a long search, at 8 o'clock, she was found near a field of oats but a short distance from the hay-field. The body was cold, and there was no sign of life; death must have ensued some time previous. The cause of death was, it is said, strangulation while in a fit. Miss Peach, we may add, has been subject to epileptic fits, and has also been in delicate health for years past. She was 30 years of age. Much sympathy is felt for the aged father and his family. The funeral of the deceased took place at Carbonear yesterday.

PEACH, James B.
Harbour Grace Standard   May 26, 1933 (Friday)

Obituary. On May 9th at 10.45 p.m. there passed peacefully away at his home "Rural Retreat", Carbonear, a respected citizen in the person of Jas. B. Peach, son of a "Pioneer Methodist Clergyman", Rev. J.S. Peach. He was born at Black Head, Conception Bay, Dec. 29th, 1861, where his father was stationed as superintendent minister. He was educated in the several schools of the circuits of which his father was pastor and also at the Methodist College, St. John's. After a number of years on other circuits the Rev. J.S. Peach was again back to the old circuit of Black Head. On the purchase of what was then Pack's Farm, now Rural Retreat, by his father, James came from Black Head with brothers, being then a young man, and took up his abode where the remainder of his life was spent. He married Miss Ida Foote of Carbonear. Deceased took an active part in all church affairs, being a valuable member of the different boards on which he served. He was also for a number of years, treasurer and teacher of the Sunday School, under the Superintendence of the late Judge Penney, and later a member of the Adult Bible Class. He held opinions of his own and fearlessly expressed them couched usually in an original style. When he realized the end was near, he spoke of his passing as a step from one life to another; for "He was sustained, and soothed by an unfaltering trust; And approached the grave as one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him, And lies down to pleasant dreams." An impressive service was held at the home, where by request a favorite hymn was sung, beginning: - I'll praise my Maker while I've breath And when my voice is lost in death, Praise shall employ my nobler powers; My days of praise shall ne'er be past While life and thought and being last Or immortality endures. Followed by his relatives and a large number of friends, he was taken to the U.C. cemetery where the Revs. Hillier, Howse and Baggs, took part in the service during which James B. Peach was laid to rest. He is survived by a widow, one sister, Mrs. W.T. Guy, of this town, and seven children: F.T. Peach, Bay Roberts, Mrs. E.P. Angel, Mrs. (Rev.) L.E.P. Davies, Nappon, N.S., Geo. E. Peach, Winnipeg, Mrs. A.G. Cockrill, Saskatoon, Mrs. Wm. Duff, of this town, and Miss Grace, at home, to all of whom the community extends deepest sympathy.

PEACH, Rev. John S.
Harbour Grace Standard   September 22, 1891 (Tuesday)
Death of the Rev. J.S. Peach. An Old Standard-Bearer Gone.

The announcement was heard with regret that the old veteran - the Rev. John S. Peach - whose name is remembered so widely in this colony, had on Friday night passed away at Blackhead, Bay-de-Verde. 'Twas fitting that the old gentleman should have breathed his last there - the place where he had spent so many years of his ministerial life. Father Peach, as he was familiarly termed, was a solid, staunch, Englishman of the old school. He came to this county fifty-one years ago from Northampton, England, in company with Rev. J. Ingham, and nearly spent the whole of his ministerial life in Newfoundland, working principally in Conception Bay. For many years he was Chairman of the District, and at one time President of the Conference. He was at one time stationed in Grand Bank, and it was there that he married Miss Evans, who for so many years shared his labors, and only three years ago passed away. Mr. Peach had been for the last 14 or 15 years on the superannuated list, but as a supernumerary was constantly helping in the work of the ministry until about three years ago, when he became totally blind. He was a man of strong personality, and left his impress on Methodism in this colony. Father Peach had reached the good old age of 81 years. Being of an energetic disposition, although blind, he was fond of visiting about, and it was whilst on his way to his home from a visit he had been paying at Island Cove, that he died at the home of the Rev. R.W. Freeman, in Blackhead. His funeral obsequies took place at Carbonear this afternoon - from his old home where he had resided for the last 14 or 15 years. There was a large assemblage of mourners present. Full account next issue.

PEACH, Rev. John S.
Harbour Grace Standard   September 25, 1891 (Friday)

Laid to Rest. - The funeral of the late lamented Rev. John S. Peach took place at Carbonear on Tuesday afternoon. As was to be expected, it was very largely attended. The solemn service in the dwelling of Rev. Mr. James was fittingly conducted by the Rev. Mr. Paine of this town. That which subsequently was held in the beautiful and spacious Church, conducted by Rev. Mr. James, was participated in by the Revs. Messrs. Dove, Story, Duffil and Cowperthwaite, of St. John's; Revs. Messrs. Dunn and Flemington, of Bay Roberts Circuit; Rev. Mr. Paine, Harbor Grace; Rev. Mr. Hill, Freshwater; Rev. Mr. Freeman, Blackhead; Rev. Mr. Hatcher, Western Bay; Rev. Mr. Heyfield, Lower Island Cove; Rev. Mr. Snowden, Old Perlican; and Rev. Mr. Atkinson, Heart's Content. The service was solemn and impressive. Thereafter the old and tried veteran was laid to rest, amid the mournful regrets of hundreds. His work was done, The Standard conveys its deepest sympathy to the relatives and friends bereaved.

Co. Sgt. Major A. J. Penney, No. 6, A. Coy., 1st Nfld. Regt.
Dear Sir: - I regret to say that we have received one very sad report about the above from Private T. Garrat, 2878, A. Company, 1st Nfld.

Yours faithfully, T.C.R.,

PENNEY, Benjamin
Evening Telegram   November 19, 1977 (Saturday)

A tribute. "Words cannot express the loss." The last day of "bright" July suddenly turned "dark" for the many people who had to be saddened as the Soul of "Benjamin Penney" winged its way to heaven. Born at English Harbour, Trinity Bay, on Dec. 21, 1908, "Ben" was the son of Benjamin and Mary Ann Penney, he was raised and educated in that Community. He attended All Saints' Church there and at an early life was a dedicated Church Worker. On Dec. 23, 1935 he married his wife, Gladys, the former Gladys Mills of Loon Bay and because they had no children were very attached to each other. "Ben" spent most of his life working for Canadian National, first as a steward on the S.S. Clyde and later promoted to Chief Steward on the S.S. Kyle. He started with CN in 1928 and retired in 1973 a dedicated, brave man who in that period made friends with thousands of people all over Canada. He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion of Pepperell and made many loyal friends there too. Ben and his wife Gladys resided in St. John's since 1942 and he was a faithful Member of St. Michael's and All Angels Church, being a Member of the Select Vestry at the time of his death. His illness came as a sudden shock to his loving wife, Gladys, who had just lost her mother as well and was in ill health herself. Benjamin Penney was a kind, genuine person willing to lend a hand to anyone and well respected by all who knew him. The kindness he was well known for, was evident as a large crowd gathered at All Saints' Church at English Harbour on August 3, 1977 to pay their last respects to a fine man. Reverend Gorham held a beautiful service in All Saints' Church - in "Ben's" hometown to lay his Soul at rest. [poem] A Devoted Friend.

PENNEY, Edward Frederick
Evening Telegram March 25, 1927 (Friday)

Obituary. Only a few days ago there was laid to rest the mortal remains of Edward Frederick son of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Penney. Whilst working at Beaupre near the City of Quebec, the deceased met with a very serious accident. Medical skill and expert hospital treatment availed for a while, but eventually weakened nature succumbed to the inevitable. The body enclosed in a beautiful casket was sent home for burial. On the morning after its arrival the funeral was held. Requiem mass was celebrated by Rev. Father Dinn at Holy Cross Church, after which the corpse was taken to the cemetery to be laid in the family plot, there to await the final summons. Dying at the early age of 24 years - exactly at the same age of his brother Matthew, who fell at the front in the Great War just two days before the Armistice - his death comes with telling force on his sorely bereaved parents. But they have the consolation of knowing that their two sons were young men of loveable character; kind, generous and liked by everyone. They have the sympathy of the whole community in their sad bereavement. COM. Woodford's.

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. ...

The Evening Telegram    March 6, 1931 (Friday)

A gloom was cast over this little place when the call of death came suddenly to the home of Mr. Stephen Penny, taking from thence a dearly loved mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Penny at the age of 69 years. The father had predeceased her many years previous, and all the interests of that home were centered on that affectionate and loving mother. While busily engaged in duties of the home, she was suddenly stricken with paralysis, on the evening of Jan. 28th, from which she never recovered. As she was rendered speechless by the stroke, the blow to the family was very great.
She leaves to mourn two sons, Frederick and Stephen, the latter being one of the business men of this place; two daughters, Mrs. J.B. Ivany of Port Rexton, and Amy A. who was hurriedly summoned from St. John's but missed the privilege of seeing her dear mother alive. Deceased was well and favourably known by every resident of this place; it was the writer's privilege to spend many happy hours in her society. We sincerely regret her passing, but her memory still lives. Two brothers, James and Robert Perchard of St. John's, and one sister, Mrs. Wallace Clarke, Norris' Point, Bonne Bay, survive the deceased. She was laid to rest in the C. of E. Cemetery on the evening of January 31st by the Rev. H.F.D. Kirby of this parish. Heartfelt sympathy is extended by all the community to the bereft family.

A MAN DROWNED
- A fisherman, named Elias Pottle, belonging to English Harbor, was drowned near the Horse Chops, on Tuesday, the 9th inst. The precise circumstances of the sad accident are not known, as the poor fellow was alone in a boat, and no person witnessed the disaster. It is surmised, however, that by striking on a rock or some other accident, the boat upset, casting its unhappy occupant into the treacherous sea, and no help being at hand he perished. His body was recovered the next day. The unfortunate man leaves a wife and two children to mourn their irreparable loss.

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. ...
