      Sydney Record 23 May 1911
      "News Jottings from Louisburg
      Louisburg, May 19 - The funeral of the late James Peach took place this afternoon from his late residence and the large concourse of people who attended showed the esteem in which the deceased was held by his fellow citizens. Mr. Peach was sixty seven years of age and son of the late Thomas Peach of Big Lorraine. He formerly resided at Lorraine but moved to Louisburg about forty years ago where he has since resided. The deceased followed fishing as his principal occupation and was very successful. He was one of those hard working honest industrious fishermen of whom we have many about our shores. He married Miss Ann Townsend of Louisburg, who with three sons and fours daughters survive him. About 18 months ago he was attacked with disease of the bone of one of his legs. He had the limb amputated but the poison had gone into his system, and he gradually began to fail. Everything that medical skill and kind and loving friends could do, was of no avail and after much suffering he passed away Wednesday morning. The deceased was a part owner with Captain Philip Wilcox of the schooner May E. McDougall and later of the schooner W. S. Waynott. The remains will be intered in the new C. E. cemetery, being the first in the new cemetery"
