  7. [S686] Basil Campbell, Prince Edward Island Newspapers, online, transcript of The Daily Examiner, 9 Jan 1906: " CREAMER - THE LATE BERNARD CREAMER, SR. - Passed peacefully to rest on Friday, Jany. 5th, 1906, Mr. Bernard Creamer, Sr., of South Melville, Lot 29. The deceased gentleman came, when a young man, to Prince Edward Island, being driven from his native land by the arbitrary conditions obtaining in that oppressed country in those days of 60 years ago. Like his co-pioneers under the then condition of his adopted land, he joyfully shared the burdens and privations of his aged parents and of the other members of the pilgrim band in the depths of "the forest primeval" in the southern section of what is now Lot 29. In early life he married Miss Margaret Malone, who, with two daughters and three sons were at his deathbed, and had the consolation of seeing a kind-hearted, indulgent, and truly God-fearing husband and father, calmly throw aside the mortal and take on the immortal, the never enduring joys for which his life was a continual and exemplary novitiate. It is impossible in this brief sketch to do anything like adequate justice to a review of the many estimable traits of character of the late deceased, of his warm hearted hospitality to the wayfarer – Jew or Gentile mattered not, sufficient they were made to the image of Christ – his promptitude in aiding the sick and oppressed, his acute sense of justice and oppression, his love of the former, his loathing of the latter, and the acme of his virtues, the undying love of his native Ireland. Indeed the greatest wish of his later years was to behold his native land enjoy a form of self-government at least as free and independent as that enjoyed by the land of his adoption, this Canada of ours. He died, as he lived his four score years, in peace with God and man, leaving to his children a legacy than which he could bequeath no greater, the gift of faith of the Catholic Church, of which he was a model adherent, worthy of imitation. Seven sons and four daughters are left to mourn and cherish the memory of a worthy sire, viz John of Brae, Lot 7, Hugh of Tryon, William at home, Bernard in Souris, Joseph at Kelly's Cross, and Ambrose and Timothy in Lowell, Mass; and Mrs. Ready, Lowell, Mrs. Noonan, Albany, Mrs. Jas. Bradly, Charlottetown, and Mary at home. In the funeral procession on Sunday 7th were over 75 sleighs. Interment took place at Kelly's Cross. The pallbearers were – J. W. Villett, H. McKenna, Chas. McKenna, Fncs. Kelly, T. Carragher, and J. McGaughey. Requiescat in pace."
