5 "Being one of the early settlers here he did much toward building up the community, ever exerting an influence in favor of the right. The Methodist Episcopal Church in this place, of which he was a member from the time of its organization, owes a great deal to Father Counter. No one contributed more to the upbuilding and sustaining of that society than he. Here where he has lived for so many years he has ever been held in high esteem, as a worthy citizen and an exemplary member of the community - no one in the community whose loss would be more sincerely regretted. Up until a few weeks since, he had been in good health for one of his years, and his death was unexpected, as few outside of the immediate friends of the family knew of his sickness.

The funeral services were held Monday at the M.E. Church, Rev. George W. Wood, the pastor, preaching the sermon from Acts 13:36. The attendance at the funeral was large, said by old residents to have been the largest ever seen on an occasion of the kind in Belleville. Father Counter leaves five sons and three daughters to mourn his loss, his wife having died about two years since. The sons are: Charles who resides in Toledo, Ohio, Fred in Montana, Henry in Oberlin, Kansas, James in Wray, Colorado, and Theo in Belleville. The daughters are Mrs. J. C. HUMPHREY, Mrs. C. PERRY, and Mrs. A.W. LAWRENCE of Belleville. To the bereaved ones the sympathy of those who knew and loved their kind father are given".

17 She was baptized by Richard Cotton. MACHON, Emma Jane (I373)
18 This date of birth, based on her age at the time of the 1881 census, may not be entirely accurate, as it makes her rather young to be Esther's mother. BUCHANAN, Mary (I369)
19 William S. LUTES was recorded as a fireman living at that address. LUTES, William Samuel (I3250)
20 " It is not known for certain what became of Charles, but tradition relates there is a possibility he had a family and that a son lived in Kings County, Nova Scotia. " WORKS, Charles (I3749)
21 " James BREHAUT married Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas BELL of White Sands. Nine children were born to them, six of whom are living. He was a good, jolly old man and a staunch Presbyterian. He, with his family, moved to Summerside, where he died". BREHAUT, James (I355)
22 " Matthew BREHAUT .... married Ann, daughter of William BISHOP of Murray Harbour South. Their family numbered nine, two are dead. He was a very good man and his last message to the young people of the place, sent from his death-bed to a service in the Methodist Church at White Sands, was a message urging them all to give their hearts to the Lord. " BREHAUT, Matthew (I354)
23 " Samuel went to earn money in Newfoundland so he could afford a house that he wanted to build. In Newfoundland he worked as a shipbuilder. He was engaged to a woman he wanted to write to while away, but he didn't know how to read or write. A woman named Jane FORD wrote letters for him. The letters from his future wife stopped coming. Samuel ended up marrying Jane FORD. " Samuel and Jane had six children. BECK, Samuel (I845)
24 " She was reportedly the 13th and youngest child of Captain James GILLESPIE (1820-1867), an Irish immigrant from Moville, Co. Donegal who came to Hillsborough, Albert Co., in 1838, and Rosannah STEEVES (1823-1898), a great grand-daughter of Heinrich STEEVES, a German immigrant to Albert Co., via Pennsylvania and Moncton. (written by Terry GILLESPIE, Dec. 2005) GILLESPIE, Mary "Minnie" (I3255)
25 " The first LIRETTEs in New Brunswick were Joseph LIRET and his wife, Marguerite GUEGUEN. They were married about 1784 in or near Cocagne, N. B. Joseph was born about 1754; Marguerite in 1767.

Joseph arrived in New Brunswick (then a part of Nova Scotia) likely in the late 1770's. Where he came from is uncertain. There was, however, a family named HILAREST that were settled in Quebec at this time. Some members of this family went by the names of LAIRET, LIRET, LYRETTE. It is possible that Joseph is related to this family, and came to New Brunswick from Quebec. Many authors have assumed this to be the case, such as Regis, Brun, Flora Cormier, and Placide Gaudet. This author, however, has been unable to find any positive proof of this. The name LIRETTE is also found in France, and Joseph may have come to New Brunswick directly from that country. In the absence of positive proof, it is impossible to determine the origins of Joseph LIRET.

In any event, young Joseph LIRET was in the Cocagne area in the late 1700's, and he found employment as a "domestique" on the farm of one Joseph GUEGUEN. Gueguen's land was located near present-day Cap de Cocagne. Joseph GUEGUEN was quite an exceptional man, and he was to become Liret's father-in-law. Since GUEGUEN is an ancestor of all LIRETTE descendants as well, a separate section is devoted to him later in this chapter.

LIRET was not the only domestique working for GUEGUEN. GUEGUEN had been widowed in 1767, and his second wife had since separated from him, leaving him with several children and a large farm to look after. Besides LIRET, GUEGUEN employed at least two others, whose names we know, and likely other individuals, whose identities remain unknown. The two we do know of were Guillaume Mathurin BRISTOL and Simon GAUTHIER.

Guillaume Mathurin BRISTOL was a British immigrant. Tradition holds that he came from Bristol, England. When he landed in Cocagne, he called himself only "Bill" from Bristol. His name eventually became Guillaume (French corruption of William, from Bill), and his last name Bristol, from his origin in Bristol, England. Many of his descendants went by the last name of Williams, probably from Bristol's first name.

BRISTOL is of interest because two of his children married two of Joseph LIRET's children. Thus, BRISTOL is an ancestor of many of Liret's descendants as well. His son, Elie, married Adelaide LIRET, and his daughter Agnes married Hubert LIRET.

Getting back to LIRET, Regis Brun places LIRET in Cocagne in 1778, when GUEGUEN made a trip to Quebec, leaving the farm in the hands of his two sons and LIRET. We can assume that LIRET had been working for GUEGUEN for a while, since GUEGUEN felt confident enough of him to leave the farm under his care.

A romance of sorts apparently developed between Liret and Gueguen's daughter Marguerite, for around 1784, Joseph LIRET and Marguerite GUEGUEN were married. They lived with or near Gueguen, and obtained a grant of 408 acres of land adjacent to Gueguen on March 18, 1791, along with land granted to Joseph GUEGUEN, several of Gueguen's sons, and others. Liret's land was located immediately to the east of Gueguen's, on the South shore of the Cocagne River, between what is today Notre Dame and Cocagne.

Around 1798, LIRET donated 3 acres of land for the construction of a Catholic chapel. The Church of England later contested the title to that land, so the residents of Cocagne put the chapel on runners and slid the chapel, over snow and ice, to another location.

It appears that Joseph was not in the best of health in his last years. According to a land petition of his son Lucien, dated 1826, 3 years after Joseph's death, "... his [Lucien's] late father, who died in 1823, was the last thirty years of his life afflicted with a violent asthmatic complaint and unable to work, being in embarrassed circumstances, ...". Keeping in mind that petitions to the crown were designed to convince officials of the need of the petitioner, and thus sometimes were known to exaggerate the hardship of the petitioner, we can still safely state that Joseph LIRET was not well for the last half of his life, and was possibly unable to work from about 1793 to his death.

Joseph LIRET died on January 15, 1823 at the age of 68, and was buried in the parish cemetery at Grand Digue. Marguerite GUEGUEN remarried after Joseph's death, to Charles LEBLANC, son of Augustin LEBLANC and Francoise HEBERT, on 22 September 1829 at Barachois. She died around 1844."
Written by Tony LeBlanc, Lirette researcher. (Website)

As stated above, Tony LeBlanc can find no definitive proof of the origins of Joseph LIRET. Another researcher has documented Joseph as the son of Joseph LIRETTE and Helene Le-Roux CARDINAL, stating Joseph was born 5 Oct. 1724 in Charlesbourg, Quebec and baptized on 7 October of that same year. The name originates as HILAREST as it continues back to Fontenay, Poitou, France, as early as 1623.(Rootsweb) 
LIRETTE, Joseph (I3148)
26 " Thomas BREHAUT, the third son, went to Mirimachi, as a young man. He married Sarah NOBLE of that place and settled there. His family numbered eight, four of whom are dead. Some of the family reside in the United States, two other sons are farmers living with their families in Douglasfield, N.B. There is also a daughter, a maiden lady. The sons are farmers" BREHAUT, Thomas Smith (I352)
27 " When her older sister, Cassie, died in 1912 leaving seven young children she filled in for a time as housekeeper at the Munns. It was probably about 1914 when she was there"

She moved to the States shortly after her time with the Munn children and took up nursing. She had plans to go to medical school to be a doctor but gave up on that somewhere along the line. She was a matron at the New England Hospital in Boston for years. "

"As the youngest surviving member of Ben BECK's family, Lille inherited the home in White Sands. The lot was part of the DERBY farm and they had first right of refusal in case of a sale. Lille sold the property to them, and in 1997 there was no evidence that the Beck home had ever stood there" 
BECK, Lillian Sarah (I863)
28 " Will was married to Norah and again there were no children. They lived in Downderry, Seaton in Cornwall, in a wooden bungalow built into the side of a hill and had trained the birds to come into the house for food". HOCKEN, William Julian (I3296)
29 "After the closure of the iron mines at Londonderry, there was no market for the charcoal that David and his brother William had been producing. David decided he would try for employment in New Brunswick, and set off on foot for Saint John and was never heard from again." WORKS, David (I3755)
30 "After their marriage they lived at Graceville for two years and then in Minneapolis for a few months before going to North Dakota, where they have since resided at various times at Litchville, Kensal, Carrington, Monango, Valley City, Mayville, Lucerne, Minnesota, Grand Forks, and Wahpeton". Family F2287
31 "Alena", daughter of Robert ROWNTREE and Jane. [The transcription of the name may be incorrect.] ROWNTREE, Alma (I6029)
32 "All baptismal names were French, and in Guernsey this appears to have been a French-speaking family, though they may well have been bilingual. ( Elizabeth WINDSOR's aunt, Mary WINDSOR, and sister, Jeanne WINDSOR, both married Englishmen, as did Jean LELACHEUR's sister, Marie. They all continued to live in St. Peter Port. All the names appear to have been immediately anglicized once they came to P.E.I. Jean became John, (in many records, John, Sr.,), his son, Jean Windsor, became John the Younger; Henriette became Harriet; Elizee became Elisha; and Barthelemi became Bartholomew." LELACHEUR, Jean (I699)
33 "Almost everyone in Preston Village was very poor as it was in the days of the depression. My father had no work for years. He was a shipyard driller by trade who used to go down to the gates of the shipyards near the ferry to wait for work. Things did change and there was plenty of work leading up to the war in 1939 and during the war". (written by Dorothy SIMPSON, 2006) NESSWORTHY, James William (I4583)
34 "As she was preparing for bed on the night of July 2, 1935, she collapsed and died of an apparent heart attack." BECK, Ada Margaret (I857)

44 "Francis, who evidently had a cleft palate, was initially thought to be backwards; I believe he went into a home when he was young. However, it appears that it was realized that his deformity was not really a handicap and he took on active work later in life". BASS, Francis Winspear (I4811)
45 "Fred Carter TRACY, son of Carter and Louise Jacques TRACY, was in 1868, at Rochester, Illinois. He married to Margaret Aronia (Ora) THOMAS, on May 19, 1895, in Beaver and died October 7, 1953, at Oklahoma City. To this union were born two daughters, Helen Louise and Mary Eleanor.

With the coming of Territorial Government, in 1890, Mr. TRACY's father moved to Beaver and started a hardware store. Fred joined him in Beaver in 1892, taking the office of town clerk and clerk of the townsite board. During the following year he was appointed postmaster and established a drug store which was subsequently enlarged to a general drygoods store. Fred had studied law and pharmacy under his father, who was a lawyer and pharmacist, and he passed the pharmacy and bar examinations and became one of the first registered pharmacists and members of the Bar of Oklahoma.

Fred was always ready to try anything new and was the owner of the following firsts in Beaver: first bicycle, 1893; first typewriter (Blixenderfer), 1894; first adding machine, 1899; first gravity flow gas mantle lamp, 1899; first pressure gasoline lamp, 1899; first hollow wire lighting system, 1900; second automobile (first four-cylinder), 1908; second six-cylinder car, 1916, and the first eight cylinder car, 1927".

46 "George Allen JECKELL (July 25, 1880 - May 30, 1950; ) was an educator, civil servant and political figure in the Yukon, Canada. He served as Yukon Comptroller/Controller from 1932 to 1946 and was accordingly the highest ranked government official in the territory.

He was born in Exeter, Ontario, the son of William JECKELL and Essy CASE, and was educated in Exeter, Goderich and at normal schools in the Northwest Territories and Yukon. In 1933, he married his second wife, Anna Theresa BOYLE. JECKELL was a teacher in Dawson and become a revenue inspector for the Department of National Revenue in 1928. He was a prominent freemason". Canadian Who's Who, 1938-1939. Trans-Canada Press. 1939. 
JECKELL, George Allen (I8098)
47 "George lived into his 90s, latterly in a fisherman's cottage in Shaldon, Devon. I think he may have had 2 children, though my memory is hazy. The son had no children, so there was some consternation that there was no-one to carry on the Hocken name". HOCKEN, George Trevin (I2529)
48 "Grandma quite clearly remembers that he wore a steel frame/ brace on his leg; he had polio and died in 1931. He died only a few months after Elizabeth (Charles Henry's wife). Therefore we think Elizabeth died in June 1931 and John around October of that same year. It seems terribly sad, but as G'ma says, 'that was what happened and all too often'." NESSWORTHY, John S. (I6325)
49 "Grant Norsworthy went to Sanderson, Butler and Ebor schools and helped on the family farm until 1939 when at the age of 22 he went afield to seek fame and fortune. After a few weeks in Chicago on a motor course he took a job at Wawa, Ontario in the iron mines as a machine operator. While there he met and married Sadie McKinnon of Thessalon, Ontario. After discharge from the army in 1946 Grant went to work at Marathon Paper Mill. In 1955 they moved to Virden. Grant and Sadie retired from the shop in 1979." NORSWORTHY, Walter Russel Grant "Grant" (I5769)
50 "Had One Dollar When He Landed. Died Worth Three-quarters of a Million Dollars.
Mention was made several days ago of the fact that Elijah COOMBE had gone to Ohio to attend the funeral of his uncle by the same name. Speaking of the late Mr. COOMBE, the Arcola Reporter says:

'Landing in America at twenty-one years of age, just one silver dollar in his pocket, working, toiling, saving until he had accumulated a fortune of three-quarters of a million, tells the story of the success of Elijah COOMBE, who died Tuesday at his home in Cincinnati, aged 8 years. He was born in Devonshire county, England. He was the uncle of Rev. Joseph COOMBE of this city, and the latter left immediately on receipt of the news to attend the funeral. He was one of the largest land owner in this section of Illinois and frequently visited Arcola while looking after property interests near here. In Macon county he owned 640 acres and in North Okaw township, Coles county, just southwest of Arcola, he had a farm of 1850 acres. He bought land in this section about forty years ago. Of recent years his nephew of this city has managed his Illinois interests for him. When he first came to America he was by trade a tailor's cutter. Later he opened a big clothing house in Cincinnati which still bears his name. His wife and two children survive him. He was a member of the Episcopal church.'" 
COOMBE, Elijah (I5238)
