Obituary: James Barningham
Died at his residence in Thompson, July 3, 1883, James Barningham, aged 65 years. Deceased was born in West Riding, Yorkshire, Eng., came to this country in 1839 and settled in Council Hill, where he remained until his removal to the farm he has since occupied. During the many years of his residence in this community, he maintained a character above reproach. As a citizen, he was noted for his hospitality, kindness and an uncompromising firmness in the right. As a Christian, his life was a living epistle, known and read by all men. A severe accident in his youth resulted in lameness, which followed him through life. In later years another accident almost entirely deprived him of sight. Yet, notwithstanding these disadvantages, he was eminently successful in all his business relations, and ever maintained a quiet resignation and Christian cheerfulness. A few months since, having been conscious for some time of a singular sensation in the mouth, he consulted a physician who pronounced it an incurable cancer. This opinion was concurred in by all the physicians that examined it, which brought him face to face with death in its most painful form; but he never faltered or murmured. To one who knew him well he said: I have just learned my fate: I am slowly dying, but the will of the Lord be done. My mouth is full of cancer, but there is room in it for the praises of God.
