Thomas M'Keever Is Dead; 89 Years Old - Norfolk Man Owned Harness Shop At Odebolt, IA for 49 Years -
Thomas McKeever, 89 year old, 601 South Eighth Street, died of pneumonia in a Norfolk hospital at 3 o'clock, Friday morning.
He was born March 17, 1845 [1847], at St. Louis, Mo., of Irish parents, and was proud of the fact he was born on St. Patrick's day and of his nationality. He was one of a family of thirteen children.
When he was about 30 years old he was married to Emily McGowan at Onslow, IA., who died ten years ago. In 1879, he located at Odebolt, Ia., where he opened a harness shop, which he owned and operated for forty-nine years.
Sixteen years ago, shortly after retiring from business, he moved to Norfolk, and when he was 80 years old he was married to Mrs. Mary Walters of this city, their wedding day being in August, 1927.
Until about two weeks ago when he became sick with pneumonia, Mr. McKeever enjoyed excellent health. One of his favorite pastimes was swimming, and it was only three years ago that he made a dive from the highest tower into the swimming pool at King's park. In his younger days, he was the champion foot racer in the Odebolt community, and in later years he enjoyed telling of his victories as a runner back in Iowa.
He is survived by his wife, who is sick in the sanitarium here; one sister, Mrs. Mary Davis, St. Louis, and four brothers, John, Monticello, Ia.; George, Waverly, Ia.; Charles, Battle Creek, and James, Tilden. His other brothers and sisters preceded him in death. He had no children.
Mr. McKeever numbered among his best friends persons who also were born on St. Patrick's day, and for a number of years, he, G. W. McGee and son, Gale, and Mrs. Clara Bloomer, all of Norfolk, who were born on March 17 exchanged greetings on their birthday.

He died of cancer, a member of the family said.

An advocate of the United Nations from its origin in 1945, Mr. McKeever served for six years as director of information for the United States Mission to the United Nations. He resigned in 1952, attacking the Truman Administration for bypassing the United Nations and reducing what had been a cornerstone of United States policy to "the size of a pebble."

"No official has had more experience in the day-to-day working of the international body or has done more to make our part in it known to the world," an editorial in The New York Times said at the time of his resignation. "Mr. McKeever is right in asserting that the 'withering away' of the United Nations would be a great victory for the Soviet Union in the cold war."

Upon leaving the State Department, Mr. McKeever became executive director of the Chicago Council of Foreign Relations. In 1953, the newly established Ford Foundation named him director of public information, and he later served in a similar capacity with the Council for Economic Development. U.N. Association of U.S.

He joined Adlai Stevenson's campaign for the Presidency in 1952 as national publicity director of volunteers for Stevenson. Mr. McKeever was author of "Adlai Stevenson: His Life and Legacy," published in 1989 by William Morrow & Company.

In 1964, Mr. McKeever was named the first president of the United Nations Association of the United States of America a nongovernmental research and educational organization concerned with the United States participation in the United Nations and its agencies. In 1973, he joined Mr. Rockefeller as senior associate and was named vice president of the John D. Rockefeller 3d Fund.

At the time of his death, Mr. McKeever was chairman of the International Council and a life trustee of the Asia Society and of the Japan Society.

Born in Kennebec, S.D., Mr. McKeever graduated from Columbia University.

He is survived by his wife, the former Susan Clark Lobenstine; a daughter, Karen Eichenlaub of Wayland, Mass.; two sons, James E., of Seattle, and William K., of Halifax, Nova Scotia; a foster son, the concert violinist Cho-Liang Lin of New York, and eight grandchildren.

FINDS MOTHER A MASS OF FLAMES

Mrs. Doyle, Ill, Falls With Lamp in Her Home

Daughter Summons Aid, but Neighbors Cannot Save Her Life

While carrying a lighted lamp last night from one room to another, Mrs. Elizabeth Doyle, aged 42, a widow, who lived at 77 Keyes St, Jamaica Plain, was seized with an attack of epilepsy and fell, causing the lamp to explode.  The oil set her clothing afire and in a moment she was a mass of flames.

A few minutes later, Helen, her 15-year-old daughter, entered the room.  She had been on an errand when the accident occurred.  When she saw the flaming heap on the floor she ran to the home of Myles Kane, who lives at 81 Keyes St. for aid.

Mr. Kane set to work extinguishing the fire, but it was too late to save Mrs. Doyle’s life.  The clothing was almost entirely burned from her body.

Medical Examiner Dr. Timothy Leary was summoned and ordered the body removed to the undertaking rooms of John Fallon.  Mrs. Doyle was frequently stricken with attacks of the sickness, which caused her death.  She leaves two daughters, Helen and Mary, aged 19 and three brothers, James, William and Thomas Galvin, all of whom live in Jamaica Plain.

Dr. D.R. Lindsay
Death of the Well Known Educator at Decatur

Decatur, Ala., December 19. – Dr. D. R. Lindsay, one of the best known educators of North Alabama, died here this morning. The doctor, who was a brother to ex Gov. Robert Lindsay, was born at Lochmaben, Scotland, near the birthplace of Robert Burns. His father was an intimate friend of the great poet and was one of the pall-bearers at the latter’s funeral. Dr. Lindsay was highly educated, being a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, and came to this country at the age of 20. He was a United States paymaster during Franklin Pierce’s administration. At the outbreak of the civil war he resigned his position with the government and cast his lot with the Confederacy. He was appointed naval storekeeper for the Confederate navy at Mobile and upon termination of the war, being ruined in fortune, adopted the profession of teaching for a livelihood. He was a forceful writer and at different times edited some of the best papers in this section of the State. The funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon.

--

Carlton J. Madden age 69, died Sunday August 22nd, 2004. Carl was born on September 9th, 1934. He was the first child of Clifford and Carrie (Beldock) Madden.

Carl married Marilyn Wright June 27, 1953. The couple moved to Warren, MI where Carl worked briefly for Chrysler before landing a position better fitting his "Outdoors man" nature. He started as a Tree Surgeon with an upstart company in Roseville, MI. During his nearly 30 year tenure he achieved General Superintendent status, helping the firm become one of the largest Tree Service and Land Clearing companies in the region.

In 1977 Carl and Marilyn moved back to the family farm in Onaway. They began "Madden Excavating" with a Caterpillar Dozer and Case backhoe. Over the next 20 years the Company became a very successful firm in Northern Michigan. A few of the companies major projects included Chestnut Valley Golf Course in Harbor Springs, Indian River Golf Course, Onaway Speedway and Lake Marina Link Development in Indian River.

Carl dove into retirement in 2003 with the same drive and energy he had put into his career and company for over 50 years. He quickly adjusted to retirement enjoying the additional time to pursue his life long joys, especially hunting and visiting with friends and family. As well as hunting locally he enjoyed many hunting trips to Wyoming, Montana, Utah and Saskatchewan. He also loved Walleye fishing but rarely made any dent in the population whatsoever!

Carl also enjoyed camping and travel, taking numerous trips over the years throughout the United States with his immediate and large extended "family." Since retirement Carl and Marilyn became greatly fond of Jeep trail riding and enjoyed a number of Western trips to the Mountains, particularly Colorado and Arizona. They also took a wonderful trip snowmobiling at Yellowstone National Park during the winter of 2003.

Another activity that kept Carl busy was gardening. He watched over his garden like a father over a child, even piping in Country music to keep the raccoons away. Another major interest in recent years was collecting and restoring antique tractors, as well as traveling to Tractor Shows. When in town he always made it to the local coffee shop in Indian River for morning coffee with his close friends.

His children have many fond memories of their Dad. One perhaps not so fond at the time, was when he hollered up the stairs at the crack of dawn "Hit the floor! It's daylight in the swamp." In retrospect all his children now appreciate the way in which he instilled a work ethic in each of us similar to his own.

Carl is survived by his wife Marilyn of 51 years, son Daniel (Janet) Madden of White Lake, MI; daughter Cynthia (Mark) Albertson of Attica, MI; daughter Diana (John) Treantos of Arvada, CO; and daughter Susan (LeeRoy) Amyotte of Onaway, MI. Grand children include Kevin Madden, White Lake, MI; Kristin Russell, Attica, MI; and Edward, Christopher and John of Arvada, Colorado. Tarci, Amyotte and Jessica Moore of Onaway, MI. Sister Marlene (Wally) Morgan of Boyne City, MI; brother Jerry (Marie) Madden of Waters, MI and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and infant sister Elizabeth Ann.

Visitation was at Chagnon Funeral Home on Tuesday August 24, 2004. Funeral was held on Wednesday, August 25th at 11:00 a.m. at Community of Christ Church in Onaway. Jim Morgan officiated. His final resting place is at North Allis Cemetery in Onaway.

Martha Dove (Biddlecomb)   (1810 - 1910)

"ALPENA ARGUS PIONEER”, Feb. 9, 1910;
Mrs. Martha Dove is a Remarkable Character of Alpena, will be 100 Years Old Monday-Was Born in Isle of Wight in 1810-Came to America When 41 Years Old-Has Lived Here 25 Years-Remarkable Well Preserved, One hundred years Old! A good old age, especially in this day and generation of extravagance, high living and the rush and bustle of modern life. There are a few people of 90 years of age in Alpena and the numbers grows less and less after that age until perhaps two or three have lived out five score years. At the cosy home of Mr. and Mrs. Isaiah D. Hart, 826 State street, lives Mrs. Martha Dove, who, if she lives until Monday, will have reached the century mark in her existence. Mrs. Dove is Mrs. Hart's mother. Mrs. Dove was born on the
Isle of Wight Feb. 7 1810. she spent her early womanhood there, was married on the island and came to this country with her husband when 41 years of age, locating first in Port Huron. She came to Alpena about 25 years ago. Mr. Dove died about 19 years ago at the age of 86. Mrs. Dove comes from a long lived race, her parents living to a ripe old age. One brother, Samuel
Beddicome, is now about 93 years. He lives in Port Huron. There are two other children, James H. Dove of Alpena and Mrs. Morris of Port Huron. Mrs. Dove is a remarkedly preserved woman, holds her years exceedingly well and retains faculties to a wonderful degree. Her eyesight is good, she can get around the house nearly as well as anyone, is quick to notice anything
going on, but is pretty deaf. She seems to take an interest in life, although her pleasures are necessarily limited. In the summer time during recent years she loved to go out to the bay shore or into the yard. Only a few years ago she was brought down to the Methodist services on "old
people's" day and enjoyed the preaching and music greatly. Mrs. Dove has a remarkable memory. She distinctly recalls events of her childhood days and the sturdy life of the family in the Isle of Wight. This is often the case with old people - they can remember early events but not
the events of recent years. However, Mrs. Dove remembers what happened yesterday, last week, a year ago, something unusual. She does not look older than many people at 80, due probably to the quiet life, sturdy ancestry, homelike habits and careful attention to the rules of health...(the article goes on with a time line and end with) Mrs. Dove's life may not last much longer, but her well spent career is an example for all. Many friends will congratulate the old lady on her 100th birthday."

Feb. 7, 1910 - Alpena, Michigan - Page 4
Numerous friends called on Mrs. Martha Dove of 826 State Street, who is celebrating her 100th birthday today and the old lady was very much pleased to receive her visitors. Mrs. Dove has been affiliated with the Methodist church since her arrival in America 58 years ago and is a member of the Alpena church. This morning Rev. C.M. Thompson, on behalf of the old lady's friends in the church, presented Mrs. Dove with a purse containing 100 bright new silver pieces, which greatly pleased the recipient.

Feb. 11, 1910 - Port Huron Daily Herald
ONE HUNDRED YEARS OLD - Mrs. Martha Dove, formerly of this city, celebrates birthday.
Mrs. Martha Dove, who ws a former resident of this city, having lived here for over thirty years, but now a resident of Alpena, Mich., celebrated her one hundredth birthday in Alpena last Tuesday. She was presented with 100 ten cent pieces by the members of the Methodist church, and one of the banks sent her a penny minted in 1810. She is a sister of Samuel Biddlecomb, aged 90 of this city.

My Mother's Love - written by Marlene Madden
 
Mother went into Boulder Park Terrace on February 27, 2001.   She had a hard time adjusting to being there, but even when she was ornery and kept trying to leave, the staff loved her.   She kept them on their toes trying to keep her from leaving and kept them laughing with her antics.   Once a day she would pack all her clothes in a pillow case and try to leave.   A few times she even succeeded.   After several months she seemed to adjust and she went into a calm, loving state.   She spread love all around Boulder Park and they loved her right back.   She told everyone she saw that she
loved them.   One of the wonderful aides at Boulder Park told me, “She brings me to tears.   She takes my face between her hands and says I love you so much.”   The staff called her their “Energizer Bunny” because she walked the halls constantly telling everyone she saw that she loved them.   They couldn’t believe how much energy she had.
 
A prayer went up for her that she would find a special friend at Boulder Park.   Marion Dumont, her roommate, was that special friend.   Marion looked out for her, helped her find things that she lost, which she did frequently and saw that she got to meals on time.   The staff said they were so cute together, walking down the hall side by side with their walkers.   We can never thank Marion enough for her friendship to our Mother.
 
This is a prayer that I found in her things written in her own handwriting:
 

Jesus, light of the world, when I am afraid and
unsure, comfort me with the light of your presence,
When loneliness chills me, warm me with the light of your love,
When the road ahead seems dark, guide me with the light of your way,
When I don’t understand and my thoughts are unclear,
fill me with the light of your wisdom.
Amen

 
I will miss her very much.

On Aug. 9, 1972, he met Debra Louise Rutherford, who in January of 1978 became his loving wife and companion for 34 years. Together, they have made their home in Eliot for many years, raising a family and enjoying mutual friendships.

His first love was unquestionably his loving family. He adored his children and most recently his beloved grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife, Debra, of Eliot; a daughter, Amy, and her husband, Tim Babkirk, and their children, Jacob and Kaitlin of Eliot; his son, William "Will" T. Sampson Jr.; and his daughter, Ava Sampson; a brother, James Burgess Sampson; sisters, Paulette and Donna, all of Florida; and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral Services were held privately at the J.S. Pelkey Funeral Home of Kittery, with the Rev. Charles Downs of the South Eliot Advent Christian Church officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of one's choice. Arrangements were entrusted to the J.S. Pelkey Funeral Home of Kittery.

WE REMEMBER: Bill was employed at Seabrook Station in the early 1970s and at the Energy Plant as a foreman on Pease Air Force Base. He also worked for many years at Hanscom's Truck Stop in the northbound service station, where he still had many good friends he enjoyed visiting with. One of his favorite jobs was at the Sign Place in Portsmouth; many of his creations can be seen all over the Seacoast in front of homes and businesses.

At an early age, he was a student of Tom Baker, who shared with him the craft of woodworking. With his gift as a wood craftsman, he produced many pieces of work for family and friends, especially his signature canes.

Joseph Benjamin Roberts (1846 - 1927)

Roberts, Joseph B., was born in 1846, near Norwich, in Norfolk County, Ont., and died July 25th, 1927, at Sarnia, Ont.  In 1877 he was married to Miss Jane Coles and located for some years near Walsingham Centre, Ont.  While here, under the influence of the Salvation Army and the Free Methodists, they found the Lord.  While he was not constant in serving the Lord, he retained a kind and longing attitude toward His cause and people and was faithful in attending the church services.  Shortly before his death he became greatly awakened to his need and sought and found forgiveness and peace.  Surely the prayers and influence of his sainted companion (who preceded him to their heavenly home about eighteen months ago) prevailed in his behalf.

About twenty-five years ago he with his family moved to Sarnia.  Their home was blest with ten children, three of whom died in infancy, also Harvie, who died at eighteen years.  There remain to mourn their loss: Rev. J. H., of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.; Andrew, Mrs John Eveland, Mrs. Hubert Ellenor, Francis and Velda, all of Sarnia, also a number of grandchildren and a host of friends.

Text used by the writer, 2 Kings 20:1.  The remainns were laid to rest in the Lake View cemetery.
