Obituary: "Death Calls Respected New Glasgow Citizen
A.A. Clay, Former Merchant, Passes Away
Following Long Illness
On Saturday death called one of New Glasgow's best known citizens when Mr. Alexander A. Clay received the final call.
"He was in poor health for many years suffering from pernicious anemia and although at times seemed to make improvement, yet suffered much and death brought a merciful release from pain.
There was perhaps no man better known in the community than Mr. Clay. He was born in Bedeque, Prince Edward Island, in 1858, and came to New Glasgow in 1899. He conducted a grocery store for many years on the stand now occupied by ex-Mayor George White, and there he did a large business. He was known for his honesty and integrity, and had the respect and esteem of the citizens.
"Some ten years ago he was in the Customs service, but for the last five years had been quite ill and unable to attend the duties of his office.
"Those who knew the late Mr. Clay best were most appreciative of his many fine qualities, and the community generally sincerely mourns his passing.
A member of the First Presbyterian Church, he was very much interested in the work of the congregation. Mr. Clay had been in church not very long ago, and while it was known that he was quite ill, news of his passing at his home, Almonte Ave., came as a shock to a wide circle of friends.
"He is survived by his wife, formerly Miss Grace Reid of Summerside, P.E.I., and two daughters, Mrs. R.S. Topper, and Miss Gwendolyn Clay of Hartford, Conn., and two sons, Dr. M.A. Clay of Mulgrave, and Harvey R. Clay, at present in Hartford, Conn. Mrs. Topper is expected to be home for the funeral. Dr. Clay is at present in New Glasgow.
"Four sisters and two brothers also survive. The sisters are Mrs. (Capt.) J.H. Walsh of Halifax, Mrs. D.M. Johnston of Long River, P.E.I., Mrs. W. Beairsto and Miss Bessie Clay, R.N. of Calgary, Alberta. The brothers are Fulton J. Clay of Spokane, Washington and Rev. W.L. Clay, D.D. of Victoria, B.C.
"The funeral will take place Tuesday afternoon from his late home."13,1,14 [Evening News, New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, published Monday, 9 Feb. 1925. Transcription by M.C. Adair.]
 
Burial*He was buried on 10 February 1925 in Riverside Cemetery, New Glasgow, Pictou County, Nova Scotia, Canada.14

"Obituary
Vera Clay
"Vera Clay is dead", was the sad news that was passed through the town on Wednesday. Death is always sad, but when a maiden is struck down on the threshold of budding womanhood, it is doubly sad.
"The young lady was born at Summerside, P.E.I., and came over with her parents to Trenton in 1891, where Mr. Clay opened a general store. She next moved with her parents to New Glasgow in 1899. She was a talented girl, and always stood first in her classes in school, and was successful both in the New Glasgow High School and in Pictou Academy in winning the Young Scholarship by which she entered Dalhousie University. She studied there, passing all the examinations of different years with credit and honours, and in the natural course of events would have graduated this Spring, but it was not to be, for she came home at Christmas holidays and did not go back, because she was not feeling well, and she gradually faded away, until at noon Wednesday, just as whistles were sounding for 12 o'clock, God's finger touched her and she slept. It is great consolation to her parents and friends that her mind was conscious and bright to the end, and half an hour before she died read a long letter from the gentleman to whom she was engaged.
"She was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church, and an active worker in the Sabbath school. Vera Clay was a girl of lovely character and disposition. She had not a thought but was gentle and true and kind. She was the light of the eyes of her home and friends. May time bring to them its resignation, and may the shores of eternity that receive her spirit surround it with everlasting sunshine and flowers, until we see not darkly, but face to face.
"The funeral took place yesterday at 3pm, to Riverside Cemetery, services being conducted by her pastor, Rev. Mr. Forbes."1 [The Enterprise, New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, 11 June 1910, page 1. Transcribed by M.C. Adair.] 
Burial*She was buried on 11 June 1910 in Riverside Cemetery, New Glasgow, Pictou County, Nova Scotia, Canada.1
