"East Campbell News - 1909 - Tragic Accident. (Reprinted in the September 1992 issue of Through the Years.) Perhaps the saddest thing that ever happened in this township took place on Tuesday last, in which Mr. John Buie, a highly respected farmer of this place, lost his life. It appears that he and his brother (Angus) were hitching up a team of colts, the former holding them by the heads while the latter hitched the tugs. By some means the team became frightened and ran away, carrying Mr. Buie with them. They had only gone eight or ten rods when they came in contact with a stump, where Mr. Buie received injuries from which he died in a few hours time. He was buried in Grimesthorpe Cemetery on Thursday. There were about one hundred and thirty rigs in the procession. The largest we have ever seen in the township. The Revs. Mr. Munro and Stotsbery officiated. The deceased was about fifty years of age, and had been a resident of the Island over thirty years, where he had many friends and no enemies. He leaves a wife, four brothers, three sisters and an aged mother, besides a host of friends to mourn his loss."
John married Christena Jenkins. (Christena Jenkins was born on 22 Aug 1862 in Ontario.)
