OBITUARY OF GABRIEL PURDY, THE LOYALIST
May 25, 1841, The Halifax Times

Died at Westchester on Saturday 8th inst. Gabriel Purdy, Esq., aged 87 years. Mr. Purdy was born at Westchester, in the State of New York, 1754. He had five wives, the last of whom survived him. He had 17 children born to him, the issue of which are 170 grandchildren, 52 great grandchildren, making a total of 239. At the age of 21 he joined the British Army, and fought in the Battle of White Plains. He was made Sergeant at the close of the battle, and served as a non-commissioned officer during the war. At its close in 1783 he with many others came to Nova Scotia. Sacrificing their patrimonial inheritance, with bleeding hearts, breaking asunder the social ties which bound them to their native soil, on the more tender chords consanguinity; exchanging the fruitful vales and fertile intervale of the majestic Hudson for the wild howling wilderness, the precipitous rocky hills of the Cobequid mountains; and all for the loyalty they bore to their King and love for the British Constitution. It is evident the affection they bore to their native land still had a place in their hearts; for on looking abroad for a place of settlement they fixed upon what is now called Westchester, near the top of the Cobequid range of mountains, which separates Cumberland from Colchester, as bearing in physical appearance the nearest resemblance to the land they had left, and calling it after the place of their nativity. The privations, the toils, the dangers which these pioneers of the wilderness had to undergo, was sufficient to appall the stoutest heart, and to wear out the strongest constitution. With no road for many miles but a bridle path through the woods, they were compelled to rely upon their own resources, unless in case of great emergency. Before the children could be supplied with bread, the grist had to be borne on the back of the parent for many miles through the trackless desert, the journey to and from the mill occupying them a day and a night; whilst the fear of the family at home, for the safety of their absent father, may be conceived, but cannot be realized by those of the present day, who sit surrounded with every comfort and every luxury compatible with rural life, brought home to them by the superior industry and economy of their forefathers. So great were the sufferings of this band of patriots, that several sank under their toll, others gave up in despair, and either returned whence they came, or sought some more congenial soil on which to exercise their industry.

Mr. Purdy was one of the few who remained, resolved to meet and conquer every toil and difficulty, and had the satisfaction of redeeming from the wild wilderness, one of the most forbidding spots in Nova Scotia and of rendering a rugged and stubborn locality, a fertile and flourishing settlement; of raising a numerous family, and of seeing them happily and comfortably settled around him.

No provision was made by the British Government for the Loyalists of the rank of Mr. Purdy, further than giving him free grants of wilderness lands. This in many instances was but a sorry exchange, and but a poor reward for their perilous services and patriotic sacrifices, yet Mr. Purdy was never heard to repine or to repent of the choice he had made. Nor indeed could it be said he had so much cause as perhaps some others had to complain for the government seemed aware of the claims he had upon it, and unsolicited, conferred upon him a Lieutenant’s commission in the Provincial militia immediately upon his landing in Nova Scotia. In 1809 he was a Justice of the Peace, and in 1817 he received the command of a Company. For 20 years he acted as a Road Commissioner, and was entrusted with the expenditure of many thousand pounds of the public funds. In every situation which he filled he acquitted himself to the entire satisfaction of the government who employed him, and the public for whom he acted, and with credit to himself. As an instance of his consistency, and of the estimation in which his character was held by his government, when he found by the infirmities of age he was unable to discharge his official duties with efficiency, he requested permission to retire free from public life, and the government in testimony of its approbation of his conduct, conferred the several offices which he held upon his children.

Mr. Purdy through his whole life was an ardent lover, as active, a conscientious, and strenuous supporter of the British Constitution. And often has the writer seen his eye light up with indignant fire at the recital of the chimerical schemes of designing innovators, or the more daring attempts of modern revolutionists. Through every stage of life and in the discharge of every duty, he maintained a character of integrity, justice and humanity; in the settlement he was honored, amongst his neighbors he was respected, and by his family he was revered. Add to all this Mr. Purdy was a pious, a consistent and humble Christian, and adorned his profession through a long and checkered life, often beset with dangers and difficulties, bereavements and trials of no ordinary kind, by piously resigning himself to the will of his Devine Master. He was strongly attached to the doctrines as taught by Wesleyan Methodists; his house was the home of messengers of God of every persuasion; and with them he delighted to hold sweet converse on the things pertaining to eternal life. He had no long protracted sickness, he needed not that narrow field of bed of death to fight the good fight of faith, he looked forward to the time of his dissolution, and spoke of it as the beginning of a better life. He died as he lived at peace with his Heavenly Father and with his fellow men, and with a calmness not often witnessed in the hour of death he resigned his breath into the hands of Him who gave it, in the sure and certain hope of a blessed immortality through the merits of Him who loved him and gave Himself for him.5

Kenneth Harn Jr., funeral director's assistant
(December 26, 2009, By Frederick N. Rasmussen)

Kenneth W. Harn Jr., a retired funeral director's assistant and longtime South Baltimore resident, died of complications from a stroke Dec. 14 at Mercy Medical Center. He was 67.
Mr. Harn, who was known as "Kenny" or "Wesley," was born and raised in South Baltimore and attended city public schools.
Mr. Harn retired this month from McCully-Polyniak Funeral Home, where he had been a funeral director's assistant and chauffeur for 48 years.

"Kenny was very devoted to his position and took pride in every aspect of funeral service, and was very willing to share his knowledge and experience with young people who chose this work," said Francis Karczmarek, a McCully-Polyniak funeral director.
He recalled that Mr. Harn was a stickler for "proper procedure and dignity" regarding funeral services.

Mr. Harn had been married for the past 24 years to the former Anna Hecner, who had owned and operated Ann's Flowers on Fort Avenue, where her husband also worked delivering flowers.
Since 1985, the couple had lived in New Park, Pa.

"Kenny's hobbies were sitting and relaxing with a Coors Light and traveling," Mrs. Harn said.

Services were held Monday at St. Michael's Ukrainian Catholic Church on Eastern Avenue.
Also surviving are a son, Kenneth W. Harn III of Timonium; a daughter, Konnie Pavlik of New Windsor; a brother, Gary Harn of Baltimore; a sister, Eunice Daugherty of Ferndale; four grandchildren; and a great-grandchild.3
