The funeral of Christina McKaig the victim of the fatal shooting accident at Ottowell, on Monday last, was buried yesterday afternoon from her late home to Zion Cemetery. Hundreds of people gathered to pay their last respects to the deceased girl, and the services were very impressive. the service started at 2:30 and lasted an hour. The father of the young girl, Mr. Archie McKaig, arrived on Tuesday night from Toledo, and was present at the funeral. Many relatives from Owen Sound, including Mr. and Mrs. W. Gregg, Mr. and Mrs. G. Arnott, Mr. and Mrs. Caffery, were also present.
George McKaig the 16 year old boy in whose hands the gun was at the time of the fatal accident, was at the funeral and his condition was pitifull. While the whole affair was entirely an accident he feels his position very keenly and is practically unable to control his feelings. He spent most of the time since the accident at Shallow Lake, but was taken over to the funeral yesteday. There is nothing to lend one to believe that his mind will be permanenlty affected

In the diary of the Rev. William Proudfoot on March 17, 1833, he and others are mentioned as being the "Third Class" of the Church which he organized on that day.


Note    N777         Index
He and his wife appear in the diary of Rev. Proudfoot more than once. On August 15, 1833, he baptised their child "Elspel." That name does not make sense to me - I expect that it was really "Elspeth."

Here is another note from Glenna Jamieson;

Dr. Choné Oliver wrote of Mrs. Ballantyne in 1939 when she was home on furlough from India and visiting London, Ontario and Westminster. Dr. Oliver was staying with Roy Pickell and his wife Jennie Grieve.

"October 2, 1939:"Mrs. Ballantyne widow of a former minister was here. Almost blind from cataracts. Her friend Mrs. Grieve (daughter?) called for her, a fine looking woman. She is pres. of the W. M. S."
