MALONE, Abraham H.  [1845-1930]
(from Kingston Wig-Standard, Mon, 3 Mar, 1930)

“Well-known Mariner Passed Away Sunday”
“One of the best known mariners of former days passed a way at the Kingston General Hospital on Sunday after a comparatively brief illness in the person of Captain Abraham H. Malone. Deceased had sailed on the lakes for fifty-five years and had handled five different styles of craft from the old barque to the latest designed motor ship to sail on the Great Lakes.”
“Captain Malone was born on March 9, 1845, and spent his early years on Wolfe Island with his parents. Later the family moved to Garden Island where the father, George Malone, was secretary of the Calvin and Breck Company. At that time Abraham Malone was ten years of age. (1855). He resided on Garden Island until 1912, when he retired from service and since that time he had been living in Barriefield.”
“He was married in 1898
(should read 1868) to Annie A. Phillips, who was a sister of Colonel Phillips, commanding officer of Military District No. 3. By this marriage there were two sons, who survive, W.G. Malone (William George) of Montreal, and F.H. (Francis Harcourt) Malone, also of Montreal, and one daughter, Mrs. Gilbert E. Storey (
Edith Annie Frances Malone), wife of Dr. Storey of Edmonton, Alta. In addition, Captain Malone is survived by four sisters, Mrs. Luther Breck (Dora Maria Malone) of Kingston, Mrs. M. Haines of Toronto, Essie (? Esther Rebecca Malone m. C H Andrews (aka Andrus)?) of Rutland, Vt., and Minnie of Kingston. Two grandsons, W. Harcourt Malone of Temiskaming and Willis P. Malone of Montreal, also survive, besides Captain Malone’s second wife, Mrs. Mary Malone.”
“Deceased had been a member of the old Elitian Masonic Lodge on Garden Island, long since out of existence. He was a member of the Church of England. The funeral will be held from the residence of his late brother, Anthony Malone, 23 Garrett street, on Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock to Cataraqui Cemetery. Rev. A. O. Cook of St. Mark’s Church, Barrifield will conduct the funeral service.”
“Started in 1860"
“Captain Malone started sailing in 1860 in the barque “London,” one of the fleet of Messrs. Calvin and Breck, under the late Captain E.A. Booth, who was the master, and engaged in the timber trade to Garden Island. From the “London” he changed to the “Silver Cloud.” which vessel was lost in the Gulf on her way to Havana in 1862 with a cargo of wheat and foodstuffs. The members of the crew were rescued by a small oyster schooner on her way to Montreal with a cargo of oysters and the crew was eventually landed in Montreal. This was one of two deep sea sailing ventures of Captain Malone.”
In 1862 he returned to the “London” and was in her the following year also. In 1865 he was transferred to the “Marion Breck.” With Captain Malcomson in charge, he was in the “Malta” in 1866 and in 1867 he took charge of the “Lafayette Cook” as master. In 1868 he was promoted to be master of the barque “London” and in 1869 took over the schooner “Oriental.” From 1876 to 1882 he held an interest in the schooner “Oriental” in which vessel remained for twelve years. In 1883 he commanded the steamer “Chieftan”, towing three barges in the timber trade to Lake Superior. This was a particularly hazardous marine feat. In 1884 he was in the Str. “Chieftan” until the Str. “D.D. Calvin, the first screw boat owned by the Calvin Company, was put into commission late that season. From 1884 to 1898 he commanded the “D.D. Calvin” and from 1899 to 1902 was in charge of the old “India” and in 1902 in charge of the “Rival.” In 1903 he was promoted to the Str. “Simia” and three years later he went to Glasgow to superintend the building of the new steel steamer “Prince Rupert” at Dumbarton. The following year he came across the Atlantic with a cargo of coal for Montreal and continued in command of that boat the next year. The season of 1910 he did not sail and his last year on the lakes he commanded the new oil burner “Toller,” belonging to the firm of James Richardson & Sons. In 1912 he “came to anchor” in his long marine career and had been retired since that time. For fifty-five years he took a boat out of Garden Island in the spring and for fifty-five years lade up the same which he had taken out in the spring.”

Daily British Wig, Kingston, 1 Sep, 1875

Death of Lt. Col. Phillips. after a long course of suffering Brigade-Major Phillips died this morning at his residence on Montreal St. Four months ago he was prostrated by an internal complaint and it was then feared he would die, but he rallied sufficiently to take the open air for a few days. Again, however, he was brought down, and for two weeks past he has been perceptively sinking. His death, therefore, came expectedly, but yet carries with it the weight of a most sorrowful anticipation. He leaves behind him a large family to mourn their crushing bereavement while a large circle of social and attached acquaintances are today feeling a sad loss. Lt. Col. Phillips first came here from Toronto and took a leading position as partner in the firm of Chewett & Co. of the Rolling Mills. This enterprise failing here Mr. Phillips assumed a military life to which his inclinations were turned by his prominent connection with the Volunteer Rifles No. 2 Company, organized by Lt. Col. Show some twenty years since. As Brigade Major, to which post he was appointed by Sir John Macdonald while Minister of Militia, Lt. Col. Phillips has for years served faithfully and efficiently, doing the active service of inspection and annual camp preparations in a manner to add greatly to the good state and discipline of the volunteer corps and the success of military undertakings. It is in fitting acknowledgement of his services that Lt. Col. Jarvis D.A.G. on behalf of the authorities requested permission to inter the deceased volunteer officer with military honours. He was a W. Brother among Freemasons, having three years since attained to the chair in Ancient St. John's Lodge, a post highly esteemed in the craft here, on account of the antiquity of the Lodge and its past distinction.

Friday, September 3, 1875.

Funeral of Lt. Colonel Phillips.

This afternoon the remains of late Brigade-Major Phillips were carried to the grave with a large public mark of respect. The funeral left the house at three o'clock for Cataraqui Cemetery. It was headed by a firing party of 100 men of the 14th P.W.O. Rifles (the deceased old corps), under command of Captain Gordon and Subalterns Sands and Hinds. They were followed by the Band of Battery A playing the death march very impressively. The members of the Masonic Order followed being in immediate charge of the body of their late Worshipful brother, the brethren of the St. John's Lodge being joined in the last offices by the members of the other lodges in the city and vicinity. The body was conveyed on one of the garrison gun carriages, drawn by six horses, the coffin being enveloped in the Union Jack. The deceased's horse, fully compassioned, followed. The family mourners, who were many in number, and the citizens generally, followed in a long concourse. Besides Lt. Col. Jarvis D.A.G. there were present Lieuts. Peters and Wilson of Battery A, Captain King, District quartermaster, Major Mathews, Captain Bajus, Lieut. Spriggs of the 14th P.W.O. and a squad of men of the Battery. The pall-bearers were W. Bros. McMillan, Horsey, Greenfield and Gordon and Bros. Drennan and Swales. The solemn services of the Wesleyan Church were performed by the Rev. Mr. Elliott, and at the grave at Cataraqui the impressive ceremony of the Masonic burial was performed and the body left to its final rest.
