Mrs Alexander Hay
The death of Frances D., beloved wife of Alexander Hay, occurred at her home on the Valley Road, January 18th, aged seventy one years. Frances Dunlop Hay was born at Caverhill, February 22, 1852, the daughter of the late Mr and Mrs David Dunlop of Upper Caverhill, York county. She was united in marriage with Alex Hay of the Parish of Manners Sutton, York county, April 9th 1873.
Of this union six children were born, four of whom survive, Mrs Alex Kyle of Calais, Mrs Frank Ham of Lewiston, Mrs Alfred Thomas of St. Stephen and Frederick B. at home. Seventeen grandchildren and one brother, Simpson C. Dunlop of Skowhegan, Me., also survive her.
She had been in failing health for some months and all that loving hands could do could not prolong her life and she passed peacefully away.
Devoted to her home circle, her life had been a quiet one but her influence for good was manifest in the home and all with whom she was associated.
The funeral service was held at her home Friday last by Rev. Dr. W. C. Gorcher, assisted by Rev. W. W. Malcolm, interment being made in the St. Stephen Cemetery. The funeral was largely attended. To the aged husband and other sorrowing ones general sympathy is extended.
In their early married life, Mr and Mrs Hay united with the Presbyterian church at Harvey Settlement where they resided fifteen years before coming to St. Stephen.
They had the following children:
47 i. Susanna F. "Susie" Hay
48 ii. Christina "Tina" Hay
49 iii. Ethel Hay
50 iv. Margaret Adaline "Addie" Hay
51 v. Frederick B. Hay
52 vi. Frank Hay
