2209 Why was this young man held in such great
esteem? Obituary for Edward Joseph O'Brien
(1886 -1910) Oh, death, with your icy hand
and fatal grasp, Your unflinching summons has
come at last; You have bade him follow by your
stern command, To far brighter realms in that
heavenly land.
At Topsail on Thursday, 19 inst. all that was mortal of Edward Joseph O'Brien
was conveyed to the R.C. churchyard for interment. His funeral was largely
attended by mourners of every denomination, t o show their love and respect
for the youthful miner who received his death summons while working in the
submarine mines on bell Island. At 2:30 the S.S. Euphrates arrived with
Manager McLean, and al l the foremen of the Nova Scotia Steel and Coal
Co. to take a last farewell of one who through his kind and generous ways,
had won the esteem of his fellow workmen and forced an entrance to the
roughe st ear. While working in the mines he contracted a heavy cold which
developed into pneumonia. He was attended by Dr's. Carnochan, Chaplin
and Chisholm, who did all available for him, but despite the ir utmost skill he
passed peacefully away on Tuesday, 17th inst. in the prime of life at the age
of twenty four. RIP
Thou son of faith, your form is chilled, Your gentle heart-beat forever
stilled; How soon to fill a silent grave, A prayer from the faithful is all I crave.

2214 Wikipedia article of Queen Victoria:

Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria; 24 May 1819 ? 22 January 1901) was queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 20 June 1837 until her death. On 1 May 1876, she adopted the additional title of empress of India. Known as the Victorian era, her reign of 63 years and seven months was longer than that of any of her predecessors. It was a period of industrial, cultural, political, scientific, and military change within the United Kingdom, and was marked by a great expansion of the British Empire.

Victoria was the daughter of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn (the fourth son of King George III), and Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld. After both the Duke and his father died in 1820, she was raised under close supervision by her mother and her comptroller, John Conroy. She inherited the throne aged 18 after her father's three elder brothers died without surviving legitimate issue. The United Kingdom was an established constitutional monarchy in which the sovereign held relatively little direct political power. Privately, she attempted to influence government policy and ministerial appointments; publicly, she became a national icon who was identified with strict standards of personal morality.

Victoria married her cousin Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha in 1840. Their children married into royal and noble families across the continent, earning Victoria the sobriquet "the grandmother of Europe" and spreading haemophilia in European royalty. After Albert's death in 1861, Victoria plunged into deep mourning and avoided public appearances. As a result of her seclusion, republicanism in the United Kingdom temporarily gained strength, but in the latter half of her reign, her popularity recovered. Her Golden and Diamond Jubilees were times of public celebration. She died on the Isle of Wight in 1901. The last British monarch of the House of Hanover, she was succeeded by her son Edward VII of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

The case of Abdul Karim:
The relationship between Queen Victoria and her handsome, young Indian attendant Abdul Karim was deemed so controversial and scandalous by her family members that, upon the monarch?s death in 1901, they scrubbed his existence from royal history. According to The Telegraph, Victoria?s son Edward immediately demanded that any letters between the two found on the royal premises be burned. The family evicted Karim from the home the queen had given him, and deported him back to India. Victoria?s daughter Beatrice erased all reference to Karim in the Queen?s journals?a painstaking endeavor given Victoria?s decade-plus relationship with Karim, whom she considered her closest confidante. The royal family?s eradication of Karim was so thorough that a full 100 years would pass before an eagle-eyed journalist noticed a strange clue left in Victoria?s summer home?and her consequential investigation led to the discovery of Victoria?s relationship with Karim.

But why was the relationship so controversial?beyond the inter class curiosity of the Queen of England confiding in a servant?that it warranted full censure?

According to historians, Victoria?s family and staff members exhibited prejudice of social variety. Victoria became closer with Karim and afforded him privileges including traveling with her through Europe; prime seats at operas and banquets; a private carriage; and personal gifts. The queen entertained Karim?s family members, helped his father get a pension, and enlisted local press to write about him. Victoria also commissioned multiple portraits of Karim.

2222 Yarmouth Vanguard, December 5, 1989

At the time of the American Revolution, while the American privateers were scanning the coast of Nova Scotia, especially in the Bay of Fundy, and that the British vessels kept watch over their maneuvers, Capt. Pierre Doucet, of Belliveau's Cove, was involved more than once in their operations. In a petition to the Council of the State of Massachusetts Bay, dated August 11, 1780, he says "That he has often and frequently received and entertained a number of American prisoners at his own expense and at the hazard of his life - brought off one that had made his escape from Halifax Gaol, and others that made their escape from different confinements."

Capt. Pierre Doucet, alias Peter, was born in Port Royal, May 16, 1750, the son of François Doucet (himself son of René) and of Marguerite Petitot (daughter of Denis). In 1755, the family was taken into exile and quartered for many years at York, Maine.

On his return from exile, Pierre Doucet married Marguerite LeBlanc and settled on the south- western shore of that cove from which Belliveau's Cove takes its name, at a place known for some time as "Doucet's Point," which became "La-Pointe-à-Major" (Major's Point), on account of the fact that their son, Anselme, was made a "Major" in 1793, when the Acadian Militia was formed as a section of the Annapolis Regiment, which is now Digby County being included then in Annapolis County. Major Anselme Doucet was also the first Acadian commissioned as a Justice of the Peace in Annapolis County.

Pierre Doucet built the first vessel ever constructed at Belliveau's Cove, which he commanded himself, being better known in English circles as "Captain Peter Doucet." This must have been the "Eunice," mentioned further on.

Testimonies regarding his involvements during the American Revolution are not wanting. May 27, 1777, John Battson, from Portsmouth, Maine, testified that the previous summer he was taken by the "Viper," belonging to the King, and was confined fro six months, when he made his escape with three other prisoners, succeeded to reach St. Mary's Bay, where Peter Doucet gave them shelter and "went to the expense and trouble of bringing them to Machias."

We have a similar testimony from Richard Harper, who was taken prisoner to Halifax, from where he made his escape with four other prisoners. They got to St. Mary's Bay and were taken to Passamaquoddy by Capt. Peter Doucet, paying all expenses. This testimony is of July 8, 1778.

Another testimony dated July 23, 1778, from Daniel Newman, who says that after having been taken prisoner, he managed to reach St. Mary's Bay, where "Peter Doucet and his Father and Brother received 'us' very kindly and provided a passage to us to us home in Ipswitch."

Even though Capt. Peter Doucet had embraced the American cause, he was to be molested by American privateers. He says that on June 1st, 1778, in his schooner "Polly," on his way from Speppardy (surely Shepody, in Chignecto Bay) to Annapolis, he was taken by Captain Samuel Rogers, Commander of the privateer schooner "Revolution" when he was sent ashore in Nova Scotia while the "Polly" was taken. He went to Boston to plead his cause, when he gave proofs of his "Friendly disposition to the American Prisoners at Nova Scotia." He won his case and was given $400.00 for the damage he had sustained. This was taking place around the end of July, 1778. For more proofs of his good intentions toward the American cause, he stated that he had "a boat called 'Betsy,' which is the only Vessel a float in Sissibew (Sissiboo), which he is willing should be improved for the release of any prisoners that may come there."

It could be that he sold this schooner, the "Betsy," because we find in Machias in the month of May 1786, a schooner of the same name, of 60 tons, whose Master is Thomas Jones, being bound for St. Eustatia, Netherlands, Antilles. A few months previous to that date, we find, again in Machias, the "Sloope Polly," of 30 tons, Jesse Noble, Master, bound for Rhode Island; it could have been the schooner taken from Capt. Doucet in 1780 by Capt. Samuel Rogers.

Capt. Peter Doucet is known to have owned another vessel, the Brigantine "Hannah," recorded at the same place, Machias, in August of 1785. Even a year before that date, viz., in July of 1784, has been recorded "a Journal of a voyage by God's permission (from Yarmouth) to Antigua on board the schooner, Hannah, Peter Doucet, Commander."

We know that Capt. Peter Doucet had owned yet another schooner, according to the following statement: "Capt. Peter Doucet, Commander of the schooner "Eunice," has left Halifax Dec. 21, 1775, and has arrived at Grenada Jan. 30, 1776, with a cargo of 15,000 feet of lumber and 20,000 shingles."

In fact, Capt. Doucet was pursuing a regular lucrative commercial relation with the West Indies. It is said that he purchased lumber at St. Mary's Bay at five dollars per thousand and would sell it in the West Indies at forty and fifty dollars for the same quantity. On his way back, he would bring merchandise and other goods, which he sold in his store just built, which was the only mercantile establishment in Clare, along St. Mary's Bay.

Returning from one of his voyages, he was to meet his death, when a sudden change of wind off Briar Island blew heavily in squalls and occasioned loss of the ship, the crew and the cargo; that was in 1792. His watch was afterwards found near the shore, which would mean that the wreck took place close to land.

And that is the story of one of our bravest Acadians of ore, who, after being sent into exile, helped the American cause and was finally subdued by the tempest of the sea and the waves of the ocean. which he had so often mastered. A wonderful story for a scenario.

Doucet, Pierre (I4870)

COMEAU, Yvonne Jan. 5, 1914 - Oct. 27, 2020

Yvonne (Deveau) Comeau passed away in Yarmouth Regional Hospital after living a long, healthy, and humble life of 106 years. After her husband, Delphis à Capite, died in 1978, Yvonne stayed in her family home surrounded by her three children and their families who diligently provided her with love, food, and care. Yvonne often expressed her gratitude for receiving the care she had once given. Her life was simple. She loved flowers, admired the ocean and the sunsets from her front parlour, outlived her dog Mindy and cat Cookie and cherished the presence of every bird on her property. Her endearing personality always exuded an authentic smile and a palpable and contagious sense of joyful living. She truly enjoyed the numerous visitors who were drawn to her and her stories of olden times: her first car ride, her sighting of Lindbergh as he flew over Meteghan in 1927, her school days, her family?s self-sustaining lifestyle. She attributed her longevity to the fresh milk of the family?s three cows. Since Delphis and Yvonne were both born in large families, she became Tante Yvonne to numerous nieces and nephews on both the Comeau and Deveau sides, many of them keeping up regular visits over the years. As one of the last survivors and voices of her generation, she will be sadly missed by all. Her memory will remain as a living example of love and kindness. Yvonne was predeceased by her parents, Joseph (Josie) Deveau and Thérèse Robichaud; her siblings, Louis (Melinda), Élise (Camille) Robichaud, Fidèle (Lucie), Édouard (Virginie), Céleste (Ralph) Comeau, Désiré (Élizabeth), Camille (May), Lucina (Ben) D?Entremont, and Jeannette (Jean) Theriault. She leaves to mourn her children, Jeannette (Gérald, deceased) Comeau, Mélinda (Larry) Smith, Delbé (Mary Guptill) Comeau, and grandchildren, Rachelle (Marc) Lavoie with daughter Caroline, Michel (Donna) Comeau with daughter Natalie, Cédric (Holly Scribner) Smith, and Rosiane Comeau.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be a private funeral mass in Église Sacré-Coeur, Saulnierville, officiated by Rev. Mathieu Agbaya. Donations can be made to the VON or to a charity of your choice.
