    Upper Margaree, born South River
    At Upper Margaree, on the 12 May, 1905 Angus MacFarlane, Senior in his 98th year. He was sick only a few days, and retained full possession of his faculties to the last. He was born at South River, Antigonish, and removed with his parents and the rest of the family to S. W. Margaree in 1822. A few years later, his brother John and he took up farms of their own at Upper Margaree, where they experienced the hardships incidental to the life of the pioneer, but where also they succeeded in making farming a success, and soon added to the value of their property by building the first grist mill in the place. The deceased was upright and intelligent, and much respected by all who knew him. He lived a useful, virtuous and unostentatious life, a life bustling with many good examples of charity, hospitality and good will towards his fellow man. He was married to Catherine MacDonald (MacDonnell), who survives him . They having lived together a happy married life of 68 years. They had a family of eleven, nine of whom are living, and seven of those attended his funeral last Sunday morning.4

    At the time of the Census Angus declared for the grist mill an investment in fixed capital of $1600.00 and in floating capital of $40.00. The mill was worked eight months a year with one male employee who received a yearly wage of $192.00. The mill was powered by water with a nominal force of 16 (horsepower?). The raw material was assorted grains totaling 5400 bushels in the past year to an aggregate value of $2700.00. The product of the mill was flour and meal totaling 415 barrels with a value of $3490.00.

    The saw mill had a fixed capital value of $600.00 and a floating capital value of $30.00. It ran 12 months a year with two employees who received $400.00 in wages. The saw mill was powered by water with a nominal force of 16 (horsepower?). Twenty-five hundred logs with a value of $1000.00 were converted into 250,000 board feet of boards and lumber valued at $2250.00.

    The 1881 Census lists Angus as a farmer. The 1891 Census lists Angus as a farmer who could both read and write. His home is described as a ten room two story wooden structure.5,26,6,27

    (Big Malcolm) South West Margaree
    Born South River, 1812
    At S. W. Margaree, 8th May, 1907, after a few month's illness, Malcolm MacFarlane (Big), aged 95 years. He was born at South River, Antigonish, in March 1812 and moved with his father's family to a farm at S. W. Chapel in 1822, where he passed the rest of his life, a period of 85 years His career, like that of the generality of farmers, to the human eye appears uneventful. But the fruits and the far reaching effects of 85 years of unremitting, honest intelligent labor are known only to his maker. "Big Malcolm's" name was always associated with every progressive movement in school, parish and district work, he would always be found in the front ranks and was often their trusted, chosen leader. His hospitality & cheerful disposition were proverbial and oh! how we shall miss the venerable presence, his hearty laugh as well as his fund of interesting anecdotes which seemed inexhaustible. He was twice married, first to Catherine Gillis of Morar, Scotland, by whom he had 5 children. The second time to Sarah McLellan of the South West, by whom he had ten children. His grand and great grand children are numerous and there is one great, great grand child.
    High Mass was celebrated by Rev. F. J. Chisholm, P.P.8
  • Biography*: The 1881 Census lists Malcolm as a farmer. According to the 1891 Census Malcolm was a farmer could both read and write.

    There were two houses on the property, both one and a half story of wooden construction. One had five rooms and the other nine.

    The 1901 Census says that Malcolm could both read and write in English, but not French. His native tongue is listed as Gaelic. He is listed as a widower.6,32,10,33

         Isabel Nigh'n Dhughaill (Isabel # 89, daughter of Dougald MacFarlane) and Maireread, wife of Ewen Cameron (Margaret Gillis, # 49), were first neighbors, while both lived, and experienced the hardships of pioneer life in raising large families. I may here quote again from an article quoted before, just to give us an idea of life then:
         "No, the work of women in those days was no maiden's play. Let me cite only one instance to prove this. There were no automobiles, no carriages of any kind, no horses, no roads or paths, nothing better than blazes on trees to guide the traveller (sic) through the dense forest. On a certain occasion Margaret and a neighbor of hers, Mrs. Angus McPherson, better known as Ishabel Nigh'n Dhugaill, another estimable woman, finding their homes needed something more than milk to help down the good potatoes, proceeded to the harbor, a distance at least ten miles, guided by the indespensable (sic) "blaze" through the woods and by the winding course of the river. Early in the evening they returned home, each with a half-barrel of good fat herring, in a sack on her shoulders. Think of this ease loving sports of to-day. Think of it, all you who have been brought up upon the level plains, transformed from the forest by them, and are yet dissatisfied notwithstanding all your travelling facilities and other modern conveniences; all of you who through a spirit of unrest, born of a desire for greater things, for wealth or gaiety or some similar craving, that the mind never sees satisfied, seek other lands and forsake the land of your birth and the cradle of your faith."9

Family: Angus MacPherson b. c 1790
