Rev. Donald MacDonald was a Church of Scotland Minister who became something of a legend in his own time. During his forty year career he became a familiar sight in many communities across the Island.

He emigrated to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia from Perthshire, Scotland in 1824, at the age of forty-two. Two years later he came to Prince Edward Island, returning on occasion to Cape Breton for short periods of time. It was there that William

and Mary Compton and their family of twelve children heard his teachings and became followers of him, commonly called "MacDonaldites".

John Compton, son of William and Mary followed Rev. MacDonald to PEI as a young man, and settled at Belle River.

Rev. MacDonald carefully organized his followers into congregations and then hand-picked a number of Elders who could provide leadership during periods of his absence.

John Compton was appointed a ministering Elder for the congregations at Belle River, Brooklyn and Bangor on July 13, 1879 successor to his brother-in-law the late George Bears, to continue the teachings of the Rev. Donald MacDonald who died

Feb. 21, 1867.

John Compton's eldest daughter, Lydia, a follower of Rev. MacDonald who heard him preach many times, penned these lines after his death as a part of her tribute to his memory.

Still, me thinks I hear him speaking

In that thrilling earnest tone

In the warm and glowing accents

While he spoke of going home

While his bosom glowed with rapture

And his heart with love o'erflowed

Bidding all to seek those blessings

Which a saviour's love bestowed.

Noted events in his life were:

He worked as a Ministering Elder Of MacDonaldites.

General Notes: From "The Guardian" Monday, November 9, 1936

SKIPPER LOST WHEN ISLAND SHIP GROUNDS. SCHOONER "HATHAVEN" RELEASED FROM SAND BAR, FAIL TO FIND THE BODY OF OLIVER COMPTON.

Mulgrave, Nova Scotia. (CP) Reloacted undamaged from a sandbar off Auld's Cove, five miles from here, The Prince Edward Island schooner "Hathaven" was bound for her home port tonight, but the body of her Captain was consigned to the sea.

Laden with coal the 40 ton schooner rammed the sandbar early Saturday morning and when two members of her crew came up from below after the shock, Captain Oliver Compton, 35 year old Belle Rivwer, P.E.I. seaman had disapppeared. The

"Hathaven" was freed from the bar at high tide early this morning by the powerful auxilliary schooner "Seldom". In less than 24 hours after she grounded in the calm weather on Saturday.

A swift current was believed to have swept the body of Captain Compton out to sea or across the strait of Canso to the Cape Breton coast. Efforts to recover his body on Saturday were fruitless.

Besides the Captain, James Compton, his brother and Wallace Jardine both of Belle River were the only members of the crew. The vessel was in Compton's charge when it left here today for Belle River. The two member crew were sleeping below

when the "Hathaven" rammed the sandbar at one o'clock Saturday morning, only 200 feet from the spot where the oil tanker "Trontolite" went ashore 3 years ago. Aroused by the shock of the vessel hitting the bar, they ran up on deck, but were

unable to find their Captain. It is believed here that Captain Captain lost his balance when the vessel struck and fell overboard into the current swirling past the "Hathaven". He had been at sea for 20 of his 35 years. The current was

blamed also by Mulgrave seamen for drawing the "Hathaven" into the bank. The weather was calm when she struck and there was not enough wind to drive her ashore.

Noted events in his life were:

He worked as a Sea Captain.

OBITUARY THE LATE CAPT. WELLINGTON HUME

The Funeral of the late Capt. Wellington Hume was held from his late residence , at Iris, on Wednesday, Feb. 24th, and not withstanding the roads, was well attended.

In accordance with his last wishes, internment was at Brooklyn. This necessitated the traversing for a distance of an unfrequented road which was utterly impassable for horses which had to be abandoned when this was reached, and it was a

touching site to see the body being born along by the hands of faithful friends across the intervening space to where they were met with horses from Brooklyn and the journey by taem resumed. Thus was laid to rest one who was widely known and

highly respected.
