HIS OWN EXECUTIONER A Well Known Warwick Farmer Suicides by Hanging
Early on Saturday morning last the body of William Massander (generally known as Messenger) a well known Warwick farmer living on the Main road, Warwick, was found hanging dead in his barn. He arose shortly after four o'clock in the morning, and went out to attend to the chores. Not returning at his usual time his wife went out in search of him, and on opening the barn door was horrified to see his body hanging from a beam, with his feet a short distance from the ground. Her agonizing cries for help attracted the attention of Mr. Phillips, a neighbor, who came to her assistance and cut down the body, but life was extinct. The unfortunate man committed the deed with great deliberation. Before adjusting the rope he removed his hat, boots, and smock, and tied the rope in a sailor's knot. The fall from the beam to the ground was about eight feet, and the body being heavy death was probably instantaneous. Coroner Ovens, of Arkona, visited the scene, but as the cause of death was so evident an inquest was not considered necessary. The deceased was an industrious and inoffensive old gentleman, noted for his kindness and uprightness, and the only cause that can be assigned for the rash act, is weakness of mind. About seventeen years ago he was thrown from his horse and had his head injured, and since that time he has been a little weak in the intellect, although quite capable of attending to his business. He leaves a wife and one daughter. The remains were interred in the Wisbeach cemetery on Monday afternoon.
Sarnia Observer, pg 8, 18 May 1888
COUNTY NEWS, ARKONA William Messander, a farmer living about five miles south of this village on the London road, committed suicide early Friday morning by hanging himself. He got up about 4 o'clock to attend to his stock and do the chores. His wife, on going out about an hour later, found him in the granary hanging dead from a beam, his feet almost touching the floor. Her heartrending cries attracted a neighbor. The only reason assigned is that about sixteen years ago he was injured about the head and his mind has not been strong since.

E. McGILLICUDDY DIES IN 94th YEAR Twice Warden of Lambton County; Settled in Warwick Tp. 76 Years Ago
One of the oldest and most widely known and highly-respected citizens of Lambton county passed away Monday morning at his home on Erie street east, in the person of Eusebius McGillicuddy.
The late Mr. McGillicuddy, who was in his 94th year, was born in Tralee, county Kerry, Ireland, and came to Canada with his parents when he was but eight years of age, settling in Halton county. Seventy-six years ago he moved into Warwick township, taking up a homestead right in the heart of the forest, on what is now the Sarnia Gravel road, and transforming it into a prosperous farm. He moved into the village some 13 years ago, and has resided here ever since.
Mr. McGillicuddy was very active in public life, both in the township and in the county in his younger days. He served as reeve of the township of Warwick for 20 years, and was twice honored with election as warden of Lambton county for the years 1881 and 1882. After his retirement from active municipal politics, he served as treasurer of Warwick township for a number of years. He was a very prominent member of the Conservative party, and served as president of the East Lambton Liberal-Conservative association. He also upheld the Conservative standard in a three-cornered provincial election in East Lambton back in the '80s. Messrs. Sam Barnes, Hugh A. McKenzie and Mr. McGillicuddy were the candidates and Hugh McKenzie, Liberal, captured the field.
He married Ann Jane Fullerton, of Warwick township, widow of the late Hartford Lennox, who predeceased him a number of years ago. Three sons survive: Dr. John McGillicuddy of Watford; Dr. James McGillicuddy, Lansing, Mich., and Robt. on the homestead; four daughters: Mrs. William Janes, Mrs. E. White, and Mrs. W. A. Smith, Warwick Tp., and Miss Margaret at home. Three sons, Jordan, William and James (in childhood) predeceased him, as did also two step-daughters, Mrs. James Griffith, of Brooke, and Mrs. Henry Holbrook, of Grand Forks, Dakota.
The high respect in which he was held was demonstrated by the exceptionally large attendance at the funeral on Wednesday afternoon, Trinity Anglican church being crowded to the doors for the service. Rev. J. H. Hosford, M.A., B.D., rector of the church, officiated both at the church and the graveside. He also conducted the private service at the late residence on Erie street.
The interment took place in Wisbeach cemetery, not far from the place where Mr. McGillicuddy hewed his farm homestead out of the heart of the forest. Some 40 to 50 automobiles took part in the funeral procession and six grandsons acted as pallbearers: Dr. Oliver McGillicuddy, Lansing, Mich; Orval McGillicuddy, Detroit; Jack McGillicuddy, Watford; Kenneth Janes, Clayton White, and Kenneth Smith, Warwick township.

McIntosh - Hipkins A very pretty and happy event took place at the residence of Mr. Alfred Williams, Main Road, Warwick, on Wednesday, Dec. 19th, in the presence of about ninety invited guests, when his niece, Miss Annie Hipkins was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Mr. James McIntosh, of the same place. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. F. G. Newton, while Miss E. Phillips played the wedding march. The bride looked charming attired in a costume of cream cashmere, trimmed with silk lace and ribbons, and carried a boquet of bridal roses. Miss Jennie Williams, of Detroit, also dressed in cream cashmere, and carrying a boquet of pink carnations, assisted the bride, the groom being ably supported by his brother, Mr. John McIntosh. After the ceremony was performed and congratulations exchanged, all present adjourned to the dining room and sat down to a table fairly groaning beneath the load of rich viande especially prepared for the occasion. One pleasing feature of the event was the large number of beautiful and costly presents to the bride, betokening not only a generous feeling on the part of the donors but a very high appreciation of her many amiable qualities. After spending a very pleasant evening in social intercourse, dancing and other amusements, the happy couple left for their future home amid the best wishes of their many friends present.

The explosion of a coal oil vapor stove caused the loss by fire of the large dwelling house and contents of Mr. James McIntosh, lot 25, Main Road, about 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon. His daughter, Ina, about 15 years old, was alone in the house at the time of the explosion. For some time she had been ironing in the kitchen where the stove was, and fortunately had gone into the front part of the house for a few minutes when the explosion occurred, or undoubtedly she would have lost her life. Mr. McIntosh and his son were at the barn, a short distance away, hitching up a team, when they saw the flames and ran to the house. Ina immediately ran to the phone to call help. Apple packers in the orchard were on hand in a few minutes, but the fire gained headway so rapidly that only a few articles of furniture could be saved. In the cellar was a large quantity of fruit, also a number of apple barrels, a quantity of rubber hose and other stuff usually kept in the barn. The loss is a heavy one as there was only a small insurance on house and contents. Mrs. McIntosh was in Watford at the time. While the fire was at its height sparks from it ignited the barn of Mr. Wm. J. Evans across the road to the north, which was consumed with about ten tons of hay therein. His loss is also partly covered by insurance. His implements were all gotten out.

A most distressing and fatal accident befell the four-year-old son of Mr. Fred Patterson, cheese maker at Thompson’s factory, on Friday last. The little fellow was left at a neighbor’s while his parents were away for a short time, and by some means got hold of a bottle of carbolic acid and swallowed part of the contents. As soon as it was discovered that he had taken the poison he was at once taken to Arkona, but died on arriving at the doctor’s office. Much sympathy is expressed for Mr. and Mrs. Patterson in their bereavement, as the child was the only boy in the family.
