Notes for JOHN HAYDEN:

In Memoriam - Mr. John Hayden

Cherry Valley District lost an aged and highly esteemed citizen by the passing away on Dec. 21st, of Mr. John Hayden in his ninety third year. Although of such an advance age, he was able to be about the house except for his last two or three days, and until less than a year ago, took an interest in what was going on about the place and went for walks about the farm. His hearing and eyesight were both good and he was always interested in the news of the day.

Throughout his life he resided on the property where he had been born, though a new house was erected on the homestead a few years ago*. He was always a most industrious and successful farmer and appreciated greatly the advantages of the modern machinery and electrical appliances in use on the farm now as compared with what was available in his early days.

His wife predeceased him in May 1939. They were fine types of christian people and esteemed members of the United Church. Mr. Hayden had the comfort of living to the last in his family circle where he was given the deepest of respect, care and affection. The household consisted latterly of his son Lewis, and Mrs. Hayden and two grandsons, George and William Hayden. The first mentioned grandson is at present stationed with the R.C.A.F. at Patricia Bay, B.C. The funeral service took place at the home on Dec. 23, and was very largely attended. It was conducted by Rev. A.S. Weir, who paid tribute to the good life and character of Mr. Hayden, and centered his remarks on the text from the 91st Psalm, "With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation." Mr. Hayden will long be remembered by the community where he spent his long, useful and neighbourly life.

Notes for DAVID PURDY IRVING:

"David P. Irving was educated in the district school and in Prince of Wales College, after which he engaged in teaching. Later he spent some time in various parts of Canada and the United States. On his return he settled at Vernon River Bridge. In 1867 he married Anne, daughter of Thomas Tweedy, of Vernon River*, a native of Yorkshire, England. They have six sons, James, Thomas, George, Alex, John and Gordon: and six daughters, Sarah, Margaret, Elizabeth, Annie, Pansy and Edith. All are living [at the time of writing] with the exception of Sarah, who died at Ottawa in May, 1904. James is married to Eva, daughter of the late Hon. James Nicholson, of Eldon. Annie is the wife of Edmund T. Higgs, of Charlottetown.

During the last ten or fifteen years Mr. Irving has given much of his attention to fruit-growing, having on his fine property an excellent orchard of about fifteen acres. His beautiful residence is surrounded by well kept grounds, and the general appearance of the place indicates the owner to be a man of taste and refinement. Mr. Irving, like his ancestors, is in religion a Presbyterian and in politics a Liberal. He is a member of the local board of health, and his fraternal relations are with the Independent Order of Foresters. In 1900, with the Hon. George Forbes, he was returned to Parliament as representative of the Fourth district of Queens County, and in 1904, with F. L. Hazard, K. C., he was re-elected. Always in full sympathy with the cause of education, Mr. Irving is giving the different members of his family the benefits of a university or college training. A man of good business capacity and excellent judgement, he occupies a deservedly high position in his native province, and enjoys in a marked degree the confidence and esteem of its people." - source unkown

Notes for MARGARET IRVING:

On Monday morning, the 20th inst., the funeral of the late Mrs. ( Major ) Margaret Irving MacRae of Vernon, took place. Reverend E.A. Westomorland conducted the services at her old home, the residence of the late Mr. D.P. Irving, and at the grave in Cherry Valley Cemetery. The procession was one of the largest ever seen in the Belfast District, and strikingly evidenced the affection and esteem felt by all for the late Mrs. MacRae. Mrs. MacRae was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. David P. Irving of Vernon. She was a graduate of Mt. Allison Ladies' College, and was a highly cultured lady. Many evidences of her skill as an artist adorn her own home, and those of relatives and friends. It may well be said that she was a woman of rare attainment, and exemplified in her life those graces which endeared her to all who knew her. Possessed of a loving disposition, and unselfish Christian nature, Mrs. MacRae was a favorite in social circles, and an active worker in the church, and for whatever made of the betterment in the community where she resided. Her death in the very prime of her womanhood was a great shock and a heartfelt grief, not only to her husband and the Irving family and relatives, but also to intimate acquaintances who admired her for her kindly and unselfish spirit. The sympathy of all will go out to the brereaved, namely her husband, Major F. B. MacRae, her brothers T. T. Irving, Detroit; A.J. Irving, Toronto, J.C. Irving, M.L.A., Cherry Valley, Gordon W. Irving, Montreal, John Irving,

Calgary, Reverend George Irving, New York, her sisters, Mrs. E.T. Higgs, Charlottetown, Mrs. J.R. Donald, Montreal, and Mrs. Hannmond Johnston, Montreal. The Island Patriot, Aug. 24, 1923

Notes for CHARLOTTE MACMILLAN:

Mrs. Charlotte Tweedy Dies At Her Home- A well known and highly esteemed resident of Vernon River passed away at her home Sunday in the person of Mrs. Charlotte Tweedy. She was in her 90th year, and had been in the enjoyment of excellent health until a few months ago.

She is survived by two sons, Thomas Weldon and David Irving Tweedy, on the homestead, and by one son, Mr. Justice George J. Tweedy, in Charlottetown. There also survives, out of a family of thirteen, one sister, Mrs. Edna Vickerson, of Montague.

Formerly Miss Charlotte MacMillan, Mrs. Tweedy was a native of Alberry Plains but resided all her married life at Vernon River, where she took a leading part in community activities. She was an active member of the United Church and of the Women's Missionary Society, and also of the Women's Institute in the early days of its organization.

Her husband, Mr. Cephas B. Tweedy, died thirty-four years ago and by strength of charachter, patience and self-sacrifice, she kept the home together while her children were small, and added many improvements from time to time. She was particularily fond of flowers, and always kept a lovely garden.

She was present at the ceremony in Charlottetown in 1947 when her youngest son, George, was sworn in as a member of the Supreme Court bench of the Province.

The following motto, which Mrs. Tweedy kept at her bedside for many years, was in keeping with her Christian philosophy and her sensitive awareness of the finer things of life:

"Let me grow lovely growing old.

So many things to do;

Laces and ivory and gold

And silks need not be new.

And there is healing in old trees

Old streets a glamour hold;

Why not I as well as they

Grow lovely, growing old?"

Sincere sympathy is extended to the surviving members of the family. -The Guardian

14. DR. GEORGE JOSEPH4 TWEEDY (THOMAS3, THOMAS2, TWEEDY1)210 was born March 14, 1862 in Vernon River, Lot 50, PEI, and died July 20, 1951 in Winona, Winona County, Minnesota, USA211. He married WILHELMINA PAULINA GERTH. She was born April 25, 1884 in Minnesota, USA212, and died November 26, 1980 in Winona, Winona County, Minnesota, USA.

Notes for DR. GEORGE JOSEPH TWEEDY:

Member of Tweedy Clan finds Success in Minnesota – The Tweedy family on Prince Edward Island is a well-known well respected clan. In Winona, Minnesota some relocated members of this family have proven worthy of similar characterization.

A Winona newspaper has done a feature on Dr. George J. Tweedy, born on PEI in 1862 and his sons Robert and John. All three were instrumental in the field of medicine in that area from the 1890’s to the present.

Dr. George Tweedy left the Island for a medical degree at Trinity Medical College in Toronto and proceeded then to Aurora, South Dakota to practice medicine. At the end of one year he traveled to Europe for two years’ study, returned to the U., and and moved to Winona.

MARRIED IN 1904- Dr Tweedy married Wilhelmina P. Gerth in 1904. Their sons, Robert and John were delivered by the doctor.

"Bob and John heard many stories from their father as young boys- stories of babies being delivered at home and house calls made by horse and buggy in all kinds of weather and under all conditions. Impressed with their father’s work both boys elected to join the medical profession.

Dr. Robert B. Tweedy joined his father in practice in 1935 following post-graduate studies in medicine. They were accompanied by John in 1937.

John took six months training in anesthesiology prior to joining an Air Force hospital unit in Amarillo, Texas and left for service in 1942. After his discharge from the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1945 he rejoined his father and brother.

Dr. Robert and Dr. John Tweedy have continued, since their father’s death in 1952 to practice medicine in the same offices as their father began in 1893. Dr. Robert Tweedy and his wife have two children; Dr. John Tweedy and his wife have six.

Dr. George Tweedy’s family connection with Prince Edward Island remains strong. He was the son of Thomas Tweedy who lived in Vernon River and the uncle of now retired Supreme Court Justice George J. Tweedy.

Thomas Tweedy emigrated from Yorkshire, England to PEI about 1830 with two brothers and one sister. One of the brothers, Joseph, established a large farm in Gallas Point, PEI, a property still in the Tweedy name. Another brother George, resided in West Royalty and this farm is also still in the family’s care.

One sister, Ann, married John Hayden of Cherry Valley. The Haydens still carry on a large farming operation. And, the son of another brother, George, practices law in Alberton before the turn of this century and during the PEI fox boom of the 1920’s, purchased the home of the late Justice Fitzgerald and established a fox ranch.
