Thursday, November 28, 2002 – Print Edition, Page Globe & Mail
McLAUGHLIN, Isabel, Grace C.M., O.Ont., OSA, CGP
At home in Toronto, on Tuesday, November 26, 2002, in her 100th year. Daughter of the late Col. R. Samuel McLaughlin and Adelaide Mowbray. She is predeceased by her sisters Eileen McEachren, Mildred Taylor, Hilda Pangman and Eleanor (Billie) Mann. She leaves a number of devoted nieces and nephews, and many friends. Born and raised in Oshawa, Ontario, Isabel's early interest in art led to several years of study in Paris before returning home to a life of painting and developing great friendships with such familiar names as Alexandra Luke, Prudence Heward, Peter and Bobs Howarth, Yvonne McKague Housser, Gordon Webber, Lawren Harris, Carl Schaefer and many others. Early mentors were Arthur Lismer and A.Y. Jackson, who became friends as well. As a founding member of The Canadian Group of Painters in 1933, and later its President, her circle of friends widened and she began to collect their paintings. These included a number of Montreal artists such as Sarah Robertson, Louis Muhlstock, Marian Scott and Anne Savage. Painting trips with friends ranged from the Great Lakes to Arizona and New Mexico, the Rockies to Hawaii, Quebec to Bermuda. Isabel's distinctive style, based on strong design and the use of bold colours was entirely her own. Her love of the natural world predominated much of her work: leaves and trees, rock, feathers, fish and shells are favourite subjects. Her work is in The National Gallery, The Art Gallery of Ontario, many other galleries and private collections. Isabel was an outstanding benefactor of the arts. The Heliconian Club, Toronto's first club for professional women devoted to the arts, was a particular interest and owes much to her support. Perhaps her most visible gift was to The Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Ottawa when, in 1987 thanks to Isabel's generosity, a new wing of the Gallery was opened and Isabel's donation of her magnificent personal collection of paintings was exhibited. This gift was followed by many more. It must be added as well that countless individuals also benefited from Isabel's kindness. Her life was a legacy to us. The family is grateful for the loving support and care provided by Donna Boot during Isabel's last years and recent illness. A service will be held in the chapel of the HUMPHREY FUNERAL HOME - A. W. MILES CHAPEL, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), on Saturday, November 30th at 3 o'clock. If desired, memorial donations to The Parkwood Foundation, 270 Simcoe Street North, Oshawa L1G 4T5, or the Heliconian Hall Foundation, 35 Hazelton Avenue, Toronto M5R 2E3, would be appreciated.

Canadian Statesman 20 Dec, 1893
THE LATE MR. McLAUGHLIN - The death of John McLaughlin of Darlington at Oshawa, on Dec. 11, at the ripe age of 87, removes another pioneer of this Province. He was born in Ireland near Dublin, 1806, and emigrated to this country with his father's family in 1824, settling n the township of Cavan, which at that time was without roads, schools or churches. He worked at his trade as shoemaker for some years. About 1840 he removed to where the village of Tyrone is now located, where he hewed a house out of the primeval forest - his being one the first two log shanties erected in that district. Energetic and frugal, with an excellent helpmeet, he became a successful farmer, accumulated a competence, which enabled him to spend his declining years in comparative ease and comfort, after aiding his children to start homes of their own. In 1834 he married Miss E. Rusk, by whom he had a family of five sons and a daughter. She was a true wife, who shared his privations and helped to achiever his success. About four years ago they moved to Oshawa to reside with their daughter, Mrs. J C. Smith, where Mrs. McLaughlin died in January, 1890. Mr. McLaughlin continued fairly healthy and active until about ten days before his heath., Four sons and daughter survive him - R. McLaughlin pf the Oshawa Carriage Works; Wm. McLaughlin who still resides on the old homestead at Tyrone; Dr. W. J. McLaughlin, registrar of West Durham, Bowmanville; John McLaughlin farmer near Haydon, and Mrs. J. C> Smith. All were present at the funeral on Wednesday last. Mr. McLaughlin was a staunch, lifelong Reformer, who always had the courage of his convictions, and was always ready to give a reason for his political faith. He was also a staunch Presbyterian and a devout Christian, always taking a deep interest in the work of the church of which he was a a ruling elder for about 45 years. In his hospitable home at Tyrone the ministers of the gospel in those early days found a haven of rest. He was withal something of a theologian and church historian - especially versed in the ecclesiastical history of Ireland and Scotland - and the hapless minister who limped on either of these departments did not escape undetected, if the subject of this sketch was among his hearers; yet he was a genial critic. His end was peace.
James Wellington Dr., [1840-1903]
Canadian Statesman - 12 Aug, 1903 - THE END CAME SUDDENLY - Dr. James Wellington McLaughlin died very suddenly early Sunday morning of heart failure. He had risen shortly after midnight to go to the closet and on returning to his room was heard to fall to the floor and when the nurse entered the bedroom he was dead. He has been suffering for some years from Bright's disease and although at times he seemed to get very much better, the insidious disease was doing its fatal work. Deceased was born in Cavan township on Aug. 24, 1840, his parents being John and Eliza McLaughlin who soon afterwards settled in Darlington, west of Tyrone, where their family was raised and educated. Mr. McLaughlin, whose resemblance to Hon. E. E. Gladstone has often been remarked, wished to make a professional man of one son and James was chosen and sent to Bowmanville Grammer School and later to the McVicker Collegiate Institute, Toronto from which he matriculated into Toronto University where he took a full medical course and gradated n 1864 taking the God Medal, his standing in general proficiency being high. He was subsequently appointed and examiner in the university. He became a licentiate of the Medical Council o Ontario the same year. In 1872, after practicing medicine at Enniskillen about seven years, he went to the Old Country and successfully passed the examinations of the Royal college of Surgeons and the Royal College of Physicians, taking the M. R. C. M and M. R.C S. diplomas at Edinburgh, He was for many years a member of the Medical Council of Ontario and was looked upon as one of the most skillful physicians and surgeons in Eastern Ontario. Just 28 years ago he came from Enniskillen to Bowmanville, where he enjoyed a very extensive practice till his health broke down. Dr. McLaughlin represented West Durham in the Liberal interests in the Ontario Legislature for three Parliaments. On entering the Legislature he formed a partnership with Dr. Alex Beith, which has ever since existed. Deceased was a capital debator, having few equals as a political platform speaker and his voice was often heard in the legislative halls. He was twice married, his first wife being Ida Ella Grose and his second wife, who survives him, Sarah J. Wilkinson, youngest daughter or the late Captain Neil Wilkinson. He leaves also two sons, Arthur E, who practices law here, and Norman, residing at Dunkirk, N.Y, His eldest daughter is the wife of Mr. B. B. Cronyn, Toronto, now in Paris, Frances, where their children are being educated, and a daughter, Mamie, lives at home. Decease was a great temperance advocate, and took an active part in every campaign against the liquor traffic during the last quarter of a century. On retiring from the Provincial Parliament, he was appointed Registrar for the West riding of Durham an office which he held up to his death. He was about thirty-five years superintendent of the Presbyterian Sunday School at Enniskillen and Bowmanville, and has long been an elder in tan d one of the liberal supporters of St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church. Deceased was possessed of a very strong will but was gentle and sympathetic as a child. He bore a very strong affection for his parents, his brothers and sister and has been a devoted husband and father. The editor of The Statesman has known him intimately ever since he began practice at Enniskillen and remembers how much he was esteemed by the people whom he called to attend in sickness. He built up a good practice very rapidly, although Old Dr. Hiller as he was later known was practicing there also. One characteristic of Dr. McLaughlin was his great anxiety and care for his patients. He made of all serious illnesses a most careful study and this seemed to continue to the end. We have no doubt but that his very conscientious work and the hardships of a country practice in his earlier years after so faithful and arduous study did much to weaken his constitution and laid a foundation for the terrible headaches and other suffering in later years. The funeral is taking place as we go to press, this Tuesday afternoon.

McLAUHGLIN, Thomas [1803-1886]
Enniskillen graveyard: Thomas McLaughlin died Jan. 28, 1886 aged
Gorrie Vidette, Jan29. :-
This week we regret to have to chronicle the death of Mr. Thos. McLaughlin, sr., of this village. Although the old gentleman was known to be suffering from the infimities of old age, he was not thought to be seriously ill, and it was with no little consternation and sorrow, that his many acquaintances learned that he quietly passes away. Although he has been with us but a short time, he has made many friends by his courteous and sociable manner, he was born in the County of Cavan, Ireland, in 1804, emigrated to the township of Cavan, County of Northumberland in 1832, where he served in the rebellion of 1837-8. He then moved to the township of Darlington, County of Durham, where he lived about 45 years, being one of the first settlers in the township where his wife died about three years ago. In 1884 he moved to Gorrie with his son, Mr. Thos. H. McLaughlin, where he died of Pheumonia, about five o'clock p.m., Wednesday, being 82 years old. The body was taken for interment to the cemetery at Enniskillen beside the remains of his beloved wife.
He has for the greater part of his life been a staunch and faithful member of the Presbyterian Church, and was over 30 years an elder; and besides an obliging neighbor, a kind husband and farther and to crown all, a devoted Christian, which gives those he left behind, six sons and one daughter, consolation and a well grounded hope that "he is not dead but gone before.
Sept 10, 1902 A deep gloom has been cast over our village this week by the removal from our midst of two of our most highly respected citizens by typhoid fever viz. Mr. R. Manning who entered into rest Friday and Mr. William McLaughlin(1) who passed away Monday evening. The funeral of the late Mr. Manning was largely attended Sunday by sympathizing friends and Tyrone Temple Bar Lodge # 126. Sons of England who attended in a body. The funeral of the late Mr. McLaughlin will be held today Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. The warmest sympathy of the community is extended to all sorrowing friends.
Canadian Statesman - 17 Sep, 1902 - THE LATE WM. McLAUGHLIN - Another good man and esteemed citizen has gone. William McLaughlin son of the late John and Elizabeth McLaughlin of Tyrone, was born July 1838 in Cavan, Ont. When he was 7 years old his parents with their six children moved from Cavan and settled on Lot 10, Con. 7, Darlington. Continuing to live here they cleared their farm, added thereto, reared their family and lived to a good old age to enjoy the rewards of industry and perseverance and enjoying the respect of everybody. Their son William continued to live upon the home place, was married April 26, 1875, to Miss Ellen Bond. Their union was blessed by seven children, four girls and three boys, all of whom with their widowed mother remain to mourn their great irreparable loss. Having been soundly converted to God at the age of 15 years, under the ministry of the Rev. John Smith of the Presbyterian Church, Enniskillen, deceased remained a faithful, consistent christian until his death. He was a devoted husband and father and obliging neighbor, a true hearted friend, a trusted counsellor and a lover of God's Church and Kingdom. Typhoid fever with other complications ended his useful life on Monday, September 8, 1902. After patiently bearing suffering with living faith in Christ - dying he found his greatest foe beneath his feet at last. Rev. S. J. .McMullen preached of the occasion of the funeral from Num. 23-10, "Let me die the death of the righteous and let my last end be like his".
