Other Life Events

AnecdoteOn 24 February 1881, Escape; Our correspondent from Herring Neck says that ""two young men named Eli POLLARD and Peter BLANDFORD went from this to Twillingate on Saturday, 12th. Inst. On returning, they found that the ice had driven in along the shore, wind having been North, and for want of judgement or experience, instead of going into Merrit's Harbor, where they might have landed without any difficulty, they rowed down on the weather edge of the ice, which was a mile in width, trying to reach land. After being three or four hours endeavoring to get the boat near the shore, and one of them falling in the water two or three times, they succeeded in getting near enough to jump on the rocks, and as there was such a heavy sea on, they were very near being drowned or dashed in pieces with the ice. They were washed over each other, two or three times, before they could hold on to the rocks. The instant they were out of the boat it was broken in pieces. Had it not been for some men who happened to see them from the hills, and went to their rescue, they would have died, as they were quite exhausted when assistance was rendered, and one of them, badly frost bitten. We understand they had about £5 worth of goods in the boat for different persons of this place, which was all lost. ""6

AnecdoteOn 30 May 1891, From The Twillingate Sun, May 30, 1891:

It is with feelings of profound regret that we record the death of Elizabeth, wife of Mr. Joseph Blandford, of Salt Harbour, Herring Neck, which occurred on Tuesday morning, the 19th. inst. On the afternoon of the previous day, when a strong gale of wind was blowing the late Mrs. Blandford having had occasion to go to the loft of a barn, which is approached by a flight of steps and gallery from without, was in the act of leaving it, and had the door in her hand, when a violent squall of wind suddenly forced the door back which coming in contact with her person, the unfortunate woman was precipitated nine feet to the rocks below. All the available help at hand was willingly and immediately rendered, but the gravity of the case was apparent from the onset, and suggested but one issue, as those in attendance clearly predicted. The poor sufferer never recovered consciousness and at 6:45 a.m. on the following morning even while the office for the dying was being said the "Pale Messenger" set to his seal and claimed his victim as his own.
The internment took place on the afternoon of Thursday in the Church of England cemetery at Herring Neck, when by their presence and evident grief a very large assemblage of relatives, friends and neighbours testified to the high deserved esteem in which the deceased was universally held by all who knew her.
The burial Office was said by the Rev. G.S. Chamberlain who in his usual earnest and impressive manner addressd his hearers from Proverbs 27th chap. 1st vrs., and urged them to apply to heart and practice the solemn teaching and warning of the event which all so deeply deplored.
