    • Susannah Wice Kiernan 13 Sep 1845 - Feb. 23, 1933

      "In the death of the late Susanna Kiernan, relict of the late W.M. Kiernan, another of the pioneers of Mulmur Township is removed. The late Mrs. Kiernan was the younger of two daughters of the late John and Mary Wice. Born in Markham township, September 3rd, 1845, she came to the township of Tosorontio with her parents when but three years old and remained there about six years when the family removed to the newly opening up township of Mulmur. Here she spent upwards of three quarters of a century, the last 72 years being a resident of lot 13, concession 7, near Mansfield. She was married on August 6, 1861; and in 1924 celebrated the 63rd anniversary of the wedding her husband being called to his reward the following September. Coming to the homestead with only one acre cleared many were the hardships this faithful woman had to endure being alone most of the week while her husband taught the country schools at Blackbank, Earnscliff, Stanton and other places for a period of 30 years. Mrs. Kiernan in later days often told her children about the lonely days with the howling of the wolves by night and "Sandy Bob" and others who travelled the trail in a state of intoxication. The Indians were camped on the place now occupied by Mr. Thomas Bates and on one occasion when the squaws entered the house a young squaw would have taken a fancy skirt had not an older one interfered. The late Mrs. Kiernan was the mother of eleven children, seven boys and four girls -Mrs. David Speedie, Toronto, Mrs. George Bedson, Toronto; Mrs. W.H. Brown (deceased), David and Hector, in Mulmur, Thomas, in Ohio, William, in Michigan, John in Tosorontio, Robert Alexander (died during diptheria epidemic in 1878), Mrs. Wm. McGill, Alliston, Mrs. Thomas Wilder, Moosejaw, Sask., and Herbert Wallace (killed in France during the Great War). Having been a member of the Presbyterian church, Mansfield, practically all her life she was a constant and faithful attendant as long as her health permitted. Surviving are also 37 grand children and 15 great grandchildren. She was quietly laid to rest in Alliston Union cemetery on the 27th ult. Service was conducted at the home by Rev. G.L. Gary, Rev. G.C. Little and Mr. P.A. Ferguson taking part. Rev. A. Bushel sang "He Leadeth Me."
