    History OBITUARY: Islander, 1 Aug 1856, pg.2,
    Died - At Murray Harbour on Saturday, 19th ult., in the 21st year of her age. Barbara, beloved wife of David Reid, Esq., Merchant, Murray Harbour, and 4th daughter of Mr. John MacKay of Gaspereaux. A young and tender husband is thus bereaved of an amiable, dutiful and affectionate wife; doting parents mourn the loss of a devoted and dutiful daughter, and a large circle of sympathizing acquaintances, that of a trustworthy and steadfast friend. She bore her most painful illness with exemplary fortitude, and yielded herself to the will of an overruling Providence with meekness and resignation. But three months ago, she was greeted a gay and happy bride. The past was full with pleasing rememberances and the future bright with hope, but now her spirit has returned to God who gave it, and her mortal remains sleep with the clods of the valley.
