Among those present were a number from Sackville and Amherst and outside points. At 2 o'clock the remains were taken to the Baptist Church, where service was held. Appropriate music was rendered by the choir. After the church service, many followed the remains to the grave. The pall-bearers were Messrs. J.K. Spence, Byron Atkinson, Frank Trueman, Charles Bowser. The floral tributes were numerous and beautiful, silently testifying to the esteem in which Mrs. Tingley was so widely held. The officiating clergymen were Rev. R.J. Colpitts and Rev. C. Flemington. (From the Amherst Daily News newspaper, dated Tuesday, 19 May 1908, page 8.).1,3

Last Edited11 Apr 2011
Birth*Leonard Townsend was born circa 1841 in Pointe de Bute, Westmorland County, New Brunswick, 45.903616,-64.250448; there is some doubt as to whether Leonard is a son of Thomas and Eunice. There is a Leonard Townsend listed in the 1851 census when Eunice was a widow and head of the household. There is no entry in the relationship to head of household box for Leonard. There is also a wide difference in age between Leonard and Eunice's known children, leading one to speculate that Leonard might have been a nephew or grandson. That Leonard was recorded as being 9 years old, which coincides with his known birth year.2,3 
(Witness) Census HeadHouseholdHe was enumerated on the census of 1851 in the household of Eunice Read in Jolicure, Westmorland County, New Brunswick; included in the household with Eunice (age 61), now widowed, were four of her children, William (age 22), James (age 27), Amanda (age 18) and Jane (age 23). There was also a yet identified person, Leonard Townsend (age 9).4
Marr Bond*He posted a marriage bond on 14 May 1864 in Cumberland County, Nova Scotia; the bond was signed by Leonard and Sarah's father, Nathan Boss, witnessed by John P. Boss.5 
Marriage*Leonard Townsend married Sarah Elizabeth Boss, daughter of Nathan Boss and Mary, on 22 July 1864 in Springhill, Cumberland County, Nova Scotia.6 
Living*Leonard Townsend was living in 1871 in Springhill, Nova Scotia.6 
Census HeadHousehold*He was head of the household in the census of March 1871 in River Philip, Cumberland County, Nova Scotia; included in the household with Leonard (age 28) were his wife Sarah Boss (age 28), and children Julia (age 6), William (age 4) and Susan (age 1 month).
