History, New Brunswick Canada SL # 862,067 Pg 56 Aug 11, 1881: "Death Of A Native---- The lated Mrs Mary Robertson, whose death in her 92nd year is reported in another column, was the oldest native of Moncton living. Her father, The late Christian Trites, a German, first settled at "the Bend" more than a century ago. Coming up the Petitcodiac river, tradition says, he landed at Hall's Creek, and after being left by the vessel was so utterly discourged at the situation that he would have turned backward it been possible to do so. There was nothing left, however, but to make the best of the situation. The Property taken up by Mr Trites extended from the Beatty line to the Milner line, along the bank of the river, and the homestead was the property now occupied by our respected citizen, Martin Dowlin Esq. The husband of the Late Mrs Robertson was drowned in Dec 1850 in a schooner which started for Portland, Main, with a load of ship knees , but never reached destination, never being heard from. Mrs Robertson helped to handle the bricks to build their residence, and some of the bricks are to this day to be found in the dwelling of Mr Dowlin. The deceased lady was the mother of James Robertson,Esq., Collector of Customs,Moncton; also Edward Robertson,who formerly carried on business in St John, but at present resides in Moncton; Chris. Robertson, of St John, and Alfred Robertson, of Portland, Maine. The oldest living native of Moncton is now Mr John Trites who is still quite hale and hardy for a man of his age. The body of the deceased will be brought from Petitcodiac in the St John express at noon today, and the funeral will take place from the residence of James Robertson,Esq., Main street, to the family burying ground. -- Moncton Times"108
