Narrative

Margaret McFadyen married Charles Auld in 1877; his brother James Auld and Margaret's sister Hannah McFadyen were witnesses. (At this time, there were two men named Charles Auld on the Island, both farmers in Queen's County. The other one was Charles Higgins Auld who married Margaret Ramsay )

In the 1881 census, Margaret, Charles and Bertram (age 20) were in Lot 31, next to her Beer grandparents. They were living in Lot 30 for the 1891 census, with Bertram, Alva, and Charles. Charles Sr. gave his occupation as butcher and farmer. In the 1901 census, Charles (50), Margaret (45), Bertram (21), Alva (17), Ira Charles (14) and Elsie (8) were at home. Only Elsie was living at home with her parents in the 1911 census. In the 1921 Canadian census, Margaret, a widow, was living with Bertram and Jessie.

There passed peacefully away in Kingston on Wednesday evening 22nd day of July, Margaret McFadyen, widow of the late Charles Auld, at the advanced age of seventy, after an illness of only a few weeks. Her condition at first was not considered serious and many hoped to see her restored to health, but he who doeth all had decreased otherwise.

Mrs. Auld was a member of the Presbyterian church at Clyde River and for a number of years took an active part in the work of the Church and Sabbath School. She was a woman of the highest moral attainments, kind and hospitible and died as she had lived by an unfaltering faith in the Savior of mankind. On Friday the 24th of July a large number of people assembled at the home of her son-in-law, Mr. George Beer to pay their last tribute of respect to the memory of one who was dearly loved by all who knew her.

Her husband predeceased her six years ago. Besides a number of friends, she leaves to mourn their loss and cherish and honour her name, a family of four, viz: Mrs. George Beer, Mrs. Cecil Scott and the sons are Ira Auld and Bertram Auld; also the following brothers and sisters, Mrs. Hannah Mitchell, Mrs. William Auld and Mrs. Elizabeth Mann. The brothers are Mr. John McFadyen and Rev. Robertson McFadyen.
