The deceased had reached the ripe old age of eighty years and had been active in household duties up to five months ago when she was obliged through the infirmities of old age to be confined to her bed. During the summer she bore her illness with christine [sic] resignation, and was never known to murmur. She possessed her faculties to the end, and recognised and cheerfully discoursed with the numerous friends, who visited her bedside. The many visitors from St. John's and elsewhere who came to spend a pleasant afternoon under her roof bore testimony to the hospitality which was one of her special traits of character. Her clear memory endowed her with the powers to entertain her friends with stories from the past. Once know her and the acquaintance was lasting.
She was devoted to her religion and principles, which earned for her the distinction of being the mother of two religious of the Presentation Order. One of them Sr. M. Agnes was a constant attendant during the last, imparting words of comfort and solace in the ears of a dying mother, thus smoothing the passage of her soul from this world to a better. She was fortified by the rites of the Holy Church, and on the morning of her burial, Solemn Mass was offered by Fr. Peddle for the repose of her soul. Interment took place at Holy Cross Cemetery, Holyrood.
She leaves to mourn 3 sons, Richard at Holyrood; Edward, St. John's; and Patrick, Vancouver, and five daughters: Sr. M. Veronica, Convent, Renews; Sr. M.

Harbour Grace Standard February 25, 1888 (Saturday)

The melancholy intelligence was received here yesterday that two men named Walsh and Puddister, respectively, while walking on the rail-track, four miles from Salmon Cove, on Tuesday night last were overcome by the cold. The following morning Walsh was found frozen to death, and his companion nearly so. The deceased belonged to Riverhead, St. John's, was 35 years old, and leaves a widow and five children. Puddister, who is not expected to recover, is forty years old, and has a wife and four children living with him, near the Cat Hills, where he and the unfortunate man, Walsh were timber-cutting since the autumn - the former for Messrs Herder & Hallern, and the latter for Mr. T. Fitzgibbon. The affair has been made the subject of a magisterial inquiry.

WALSH, Patrick
Harbour Grace Standard March 3, 1888 (Saturday)

The Salmon Cove Casualty. - Last week when giving a few particulars of this melancholy affair, we remarked that a magisterial investigation was being held by Judge Prowse respecting it. We learn from the Colonist a few facts regarding the enquiry. The Judge was accompanied by Inspector Fawcett and Dr. Rendell.
The particulars are briefly these: "It seems that Patrick Walsh, (the man who lost his life), with two other men, Puddister and Terrence Morrissey (Mr. Fitzgibbon's clerk) left Cat Hill on Tuesday afternoon, to walk to Salmon Cove Junction. Morrissey felt very much fatigued and was very pleased to get to Edward Kennedy's house, Salmon Cove, where he obtained lodgings for the night. He treated Walsh and Puddister to a glass of rum. Walsh asked him for 2s. 6d., Morrissey would not give it to him for fear of his getting drunk, but he gave him five or six glasses in a black bottle, bought at Kennedy's. He noticed that Walsh had a black coat on when he came out with him. Morrissey left them in the shop, went in and had his tea, about 10.30 that evening.
They came back to Kennedy's; Morrissey and Kennedy were sitting in the shop; he noticed that both had liquor taken, and Walsh had no black coat. Walsh called for a drink, Morrissey would not have one with them; Kennedy gave them the drink; don't know which of the men paid for the drink. Walsh put fifty cents on the counter and asked Kennedy for a bottle of rum; he refused at first, but ultimately gave Walsh the bottle; they said they were going to stop at Mahoney's. Kennedy said they could get the bottle of liquor in the morning. Walsh insisted on having the liquor and got it, put it in his pocket, and went out. Walsh told Morrissey he had borrowed 2/6d. from a friend, he had no black coat on then. According to Puddister's evidence he was a little in liquor when he left Kennedy's, but Walsh was very drunk. I was delayed getting him along the road - we had a drink again at Mahoney's and also went to Ned Mahoney's and had a drink out of Walsh's bottle - mile and a half inside of Salmon Cove, had a drink again out of Walsh's bottle, we went along two miles further. I wanted Walsh to go into John Turner's; he would not, and we went on again. It was raining hard and blowing. Puddister says, he felt himself getting weak, left Walsh, and tried to get home to send help to him, and he was from midnight until daylight on the road, it began to freeze, and our wet clothes began to freeze on us; I laid down by the side of the track several times, I was unconscious at the last and don't know who brought me home, I feel very sick now."

Poor Patrick Walsh leaves a wife and six helpless children very badly off; he was a most industrious working man. He had been sick about a fortnight before the sad affair happened. Puddister, the companion of the unfortunate man Walsh, is recovering.

WALSH, Rev. William
Newfoundlander October 11, 1866 (Thursday)

Death of the Rev. William Walsh. It is our melancholy task to-day to announce the death of the Revd. William Walsh, which took place on Monday last, 8th October, at the Roman Catholic Presbytery, River-Head, at one o'clock, A.M. He was in the 28th year of his age and the 6th of his sacred ministry. Carried off by a brief illness in the flower of his age, in the constant exercise of good works, he will be remembered in the hearts and homes of the poor and afflicted with a memory more deep and grateful than the world bestows upon its most honoured great.
Father William Walsh was born near Pilltown in County Kilkenny, Ireland; he prosecuted his ecclesiastical studies for some years in the St. John's College, Waterford, and completed them in St. Bonaventure's College in this town. In the month of June 1861 he was ordained priest by the Rt. Revd. Dr. Mullock, and sent to Harbor Main immediately. He found that district agitated by dissensions consequent on a late vehement political conflict. The young priest, strong in his newly-received grace, and in that imperturbable patience and charity for which he was remarkable, applied himself at once to the task of reconciliation, and such was his zeal, so great the example of a meekness proof against every injury, that in a short time he had the consolation of finding accomplished that most difficult of all tasks, the calming of angry passions.
From Harbor Main, after two years, he was called to River-Head, St. John's, where, almost up to the very hour of his death, he was constant in the exercise of all duties of his ministry. There he had for the scene of his labours a thickly-populated district, where poverty and its attendant ills have their ordinary home. Day and night he was ready at the summons of the dying, and ministered to them with a kindness and sympathy that sweetened their last bitter chalice, and gave zest to the consolation of religion. Midst such a career of good works, Father William Walsh counted out the last hour of his brief life, and slept in death peaceful and happy, as the labourer sleeps after the healthful fatigue. The expression of grief on the part of the people amongst whom he labored, was unrestrainable; day and night they crowded the Church at River-Head where his remains were exposed, giving free scope to their heartfelt sorrow.
On yesterday, the day of his funeral, all the priests of St. John's and many of the surrounding districts, whom the melancholy news had attracted to the capital, celebrated Requiem Mass for the repose of his soul. His funeral was attended by all the Catholic population of the city, who hardly surpassed to their neighbors of a different persuasion in demonstration of respectful sorrow. The loss of Father Walsh to his intimates can hardly be supplied. He possessed those rare qualities that convert friendship into brotherhood - gentle in manner, elevated in thought, simple, yet sagacious. Nature seemed to have disposed him by her highest gifts for the more sacred endowments of the Holy Priesthood.
May he rest in peace.    FRATER.

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. ...

Reports of a sad disaster have been current in town for the past day or two. It seems that on the afternoon of Monday last, a boat manned by six men, left Brigus for Cat's Cove, having on board some 2000 feet lumber, 2 barrels flour, 2 bags bread, and about 50 lbs. nails. As the boat did not turn up on the following day, and as the wind had raged with great fury on the Monday night, serious fears respecting her safety, began to be entertained, which unhappily, were worse than realized on Thursday morning last, when the news came that a boat had been picked up over on the southern shore, containing two barrels of flour, two bags of bread and a pair of men's cuffs. It is thought that the craft was swamped off Brigus Point. Five of her hands were of the name of Costello, the other was a man named Whalen.

Obituary. Patrick Whelan, Chapel's Cove. "In the midst of life we are in death", can be truly said of the peaceful passing to its eternal rest on January 4th of the soul of Patrick Whelan of Chapel's Cove. Christmas joys were soon turned to sorrow in the home and his passing cast a gloom over the little settlement. Deceased was in his 24th year. When the war broke out he was one of four brothers that answered duty's call, although only 16 years of age. After the war was over he returned home, hale and hearty. About a year ago he developed that dreadful plague consumption and all that medicine could do was done for him. Left to mourn are his mother, one sister and four brothers, Jim at Bell island, Walter at Corner Brook, Jack and Philip at home. The funeral took place from his home, and wended its way to the little cemetery by the side of the hill, where his mortal remains were laid reverently and lovingly to rest, there to await the resurrection morn. Chapel's Cove, Feby. 4th, 1925.

Mr. Whalen [sic] possessed a most affable disposition, and kindness of heart that earned for him the highest esteem of all with whom he was associated. He was born in Chapels Cove but resided at Bell island for a number of years. He leaves to mourn a loving wife, five sons, one daughter and one sister (Mrs. Healey) North Arm, Holyrood and a host of friends.
