Harold Milford Verge, Sr.

Obituary - Liverpool Advance, June 7, 1934

Our whole district was deeply shocked when word came of the death by drowning near the mouth of Five Rivers, White Point, on Monday, May 21 of Harry Milford Verge.

Mr. Verge, with his fishing partner, Albert Payzant, were at the time engaged in tending their lobster traps. There was a heavy surf and the accident occured when they attempted to pull a trap near a big submerged rock less than a hundred yards from land. The boat evidently hit the rock and when the two men were thrown into the water Mr. Verge must have struck the rock or been injured in some way which prevented his being able to help himself. Mr. Payzant, with difficulty, got to land. Mr. Verge's body was recovered in the evening.

The deceased was in his 43rd year and a son of the late William Verge and Mrs. Verge of White Point where he always made his home.

In October, 1922, he married Laura Clarissa Smith, daughter of Mr & Mrs. Lewis Smith, Hunts Point. They had four children, three of whom survive, Harry Milford, Elaine Florence and Lewis Leon. Mrs. Verge, who was a highly respected young wife and mother, died in 1928.

Mr. Verge was a cook by trade, serving on ships and in lumber camps. But lately, in order to keep his little family in his own home he had been doing some shore fishing. He was a young man of quiet, retiring disposition, highly respected by all who knew him. A faithful and devoted husband, and since the death of his wife, both mother and father to his children. The children will make their home with Mr. & Mrs. Lewis Smith, their maternal grandparents, where they have spent most of the last four years.

Besides the children and Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Mr. Verge leaves of his immediate family to mourn his loss, his mother, Mrs. Nora Verge, three sisters, Mrs. William Leahy, and Mrs. Nat Toothe of New York, USA, and Mrs. Alton Langille of Martin's River, Lunenburg Co., NS; seven brothers, Hugh, Robert & James, New York, John in Western Canada, Frank in Halifax, Ambrose & William of White Point.

Mrs. Leahy, Mrs. Toothe and Mrs. Hugh Verge of New York and Mr. Ambrose Verge who was at St.John, NB with his vessel, came home for the funeral. The burial service from the home of his widowed mother was held in St. James Church, the Rector, Rev, Canon E. B. Spurr officiating. It was attended by the citizenship generally and was very impressive. The interment was in the churchyard beside his predeceased wife and child.

Harold Milford Verge, Sr.

News Story - Halifax Chronicle Herald, May 21, 1934

Just before dark tonight the sea gave up the body of Harry Verge when it was washed ashore. It was discovered on the beach by the search party headed by Eldridge Doggett.

Albert Payzant, 19, left home at White Point, Queens County twice today to go out on the sea.This morning he and Harry Verge,40, also of White Point, started out for the usually uneventful routine of the lobster fisherman's day.

This afternoon young Payzant, accompanied a search party for the body of his companion.

Interviewed by the Chronicle at her home, Mrs. Frank Payzant, mother of young Payzant, repeated what her son had told her of the tragedy. The first intimation her son had of impending disaster was when Verge shouted to him to "Look out!" The next momemt they were both in the icy water and the boat was nowhere to be seen, having apparently sunk instantly.

Payzant, who can swim, made an effort to reach and assist the older man, who could not swim. Verge, clinging to the floating bait barrel, persuaded Payzant to try to save himself and cover the one hundred yards of distance to shore. He managed to reach the beach and gave the alarm whereupon boats from nearby points and from Liverpool rushed to the scene but Verge couldn't be found. This afternoon dredging operations were unsuccessfully carried out and young Payzant was untiring in his effort to locate the body of his companion. Verge was a widower and is survived by three children.

Albert Payzant is the youth who narrowly escaped losing his hand in January when he accidently pulled the trigger of a gun he was storing away in his boat, emptying the charge into the palm of his left hand.

Laura Verge

News Story - Halifax Chronicle Herald, Mar. 31, 1964

Street Accident Kills Child

"Spring fever" was blamed for the second highway fatality involving children in the last two days when five-year-old Laura Verge of 23 Convoy Avenue, Fairview, was killed when she was struck by a car near her home yesterday.

The girl, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Verge, had apparently run out from her house after watching television when the accident occurred. Driver of the car was identified as Donald L. Barrett of Bedford.

RCMP officials last night asked parents to instruct their children on proper highway safety... especially with "spring in the air" when children were more active than usual.

Also RCMP said snowbanks remained along roads in many areas, making it almost impossible for motorists to see the children playing.

An autopsy was performed last night. Funeral arrangements are incomplete.

Saturday, five-year-old Gwen Gale Dessert, only child of Cpl. and Mrs. Joseph Dessert, Beaverbank, was killed when she was struck by a car while playing near her home.
