10/02/2019 Nurse Marjorie Gaussen Kinley From the Belfast Newsletter dated 18th August 1917:
10/02/2019 Nurse Marjorie Gaussen Kinley From the report above it can be seen that the nurse living at Bloomhill with the family, Nurse Sarah Elizabeth Sullivan, had been engaged for some time teaching First Aid and Nursing classes in Newmills and Stewartstown. This may way well be where Marjorie and her sisters got their interest in nursing. Nurse Sarah Sullivan went on to work at the U.V.F. hospital at Pau in France.
10/02/2019 Nurse Marjorie Gaussen Kinley Mr Gerald B Kinley, second son of Mr H Wash Kinley, Bloomhill, Dungannon, has got a commission in the Royal Irish Fusiliers. He was educated in Scotland and obtained his degree in Engineering. When the war broke out, he was engaged as a Civil Engineer on a railway extension of the Western Railway in the Argentine. He threw up his appointment and volunteered and is now waiting in Tipperary with his regiment for orders to go to the front. His youngest brother Clifford has also adopted engineering as a profession, and almost finished his apprenticeship in Leeds when Kitchener’s call came. He volunteered with the Leeds Battalion of the West Yorkshire Regiment and is now in camp. Mr Kinley’s eldest son Maurice, who is in Canada, also volunteered for the Canadian contingent, but as he had recently had an attack of rheumatic fever, which weakened his heart, he was not able to pass the high medical standard required for the Canadian force. Mr Kinley is very proud of the spontaneous offers of service by his three sons, so widely separated in their work, and that the family have given themselves entirely to the campaign. It may be mentioned that Nurse S E Sullivan, also of Bloomhill, has been engaged for some time teaching First Aid and Nursing classes in Newmills, Stewartstown etc, has volunteered and been accepted by St John’s Ambulance for foreign service, and is now working at Pau in France. The country at large might well take an example from Bloomhill.

10/02/2019 Nurse Marjorie Gaussen Kinley During the autumn of 1917, a series of 'stripes' were introduced for VADs to wear on the sleeve of their dresses, and there were different colours to signify different things. White stripes were issued to denote length of service for VADs working for the Joint War Committee, and red stripes to VADs under contract to the War Office to denote that they had been certificated as 'efficient' by their Matron and Commanding Officer. Late in the war, JWC nurses could also be awarded efficiency stripes which were blue in colour.

10/02/2019 Nurse Marjorie Gaussen Kinley In 1911, Marjorie would have been fifteen. Her elder brother Clifford was boarding at Portora Royal School in Enniskillen, so it must be assumed that she too was at boarding school.

10/02/2019 Nurse Marjorie Gaussen Kinley Known family: Hugh Washington Kinley, Edith Caroline Magill Kinley, W Vera Kinley (born about 1885, Kingstown, County Dublin), Hugh Maurice Brooks Kinley (born 12th September 1886, Portrush), Gerald Kinley (born 25th August 1888, Portrush), Muriel Gaussen Kinley (born 3rd July 1889, Portrush), Clifford Martin Kinley (born 14th October 1893, Portrush), Marjorie Gaussen Kinley (born 10th December 1895, Portrush)
10/02/2019 Nurse Marjorie Gaussen Kinley Marjorie Kinley was born on 10th December 1895 in the Portrush area. She was the youngest of at least six children.
10/02/2019 Nurse Marjorie Gaussen Kinley Marjorie Gaussen Kinley was the youngest daughter of Hugh Washington Kinley and Edith Caroline Magill Kinley. Hugh Kinley and Edith Magill were married on 15th March 1883 in the district of Cookstown.
10/02/2019 Nurse Marjorie Gaussen Kinley The announcement of the death of Miss Marjorie Kinley (youngest daughter of Mr H Wash Kinley of Bloomhill) came as a shock to a wide circle of friends and the community generally. That her early death was as much in the service of her country as that of any brave volunteer in the field of battle, increases the deep regret. Miss Kinley, when only eighteen years of age, shortly after the war broke out, offered her services as a nurse and began work at Queen’s Children’s Hospital, Bethnal Green, where she remained until forced to give up by illness in August 1915. After some months rest she took up nursing again in 1st London General Military Hospital, which after two months over-work, resulted in another breakdown in health. From September 1916 till the following May, however, she worked at the Brooke Street Facial Hospital, where she assisted in many interesting cases, and from there went to the Military Hospital at Herne Bay, and received her red stripe for efficiency, after holding the responsible position of staff nurse for over a year. While at Herne Bay, she had to carry on during air raids with shell-shock patients, but she regarded her work as a duty to the country, which rendered it a pleasure. Her kindness was greatly appreciated by many soldiers who she had helped back to convalescence (the hospital receiving fresh cases from France), and she received numerous letters of gratitude from former patients when she was again compelled to relinquish her post two months ago owing to serious breakdown in health. This time, unfortunately, rest did not restore her to health, and on the advice of Professor Campbell, she went to a nursing home in Belfast where she succumbed, to the intense grief of all those who were privileged to know her.

10/02/2019 Trooper Robert Daniel Much regret is expressed amongst a wide circle of friends at the announcement of the death of Mr Robert Daniel, J.P., which took place at his residence, Derryvale, Coalisland, on Friday. The deceased gentleman, who originally resided at Oaklands, Cheshire, married a daughter of the late Mr Richard Pike, of Beechgrove, Dungannon, and for upwards of thirty-five years, carried on the linen finishing and dyeing business at Beechgrove. He was representative to the General Synod from the diocese of Armagh. He was a delegate to the celebrated Ulster Unionist Convention in Belfast in 1892, was president of the Newmills Unionist Club, and president of the Dungannon District Unionist Clubs Council (comprising twenty seven clubs). On the formation of the Ulster Volunteer Force he threw himself heart and soul into the movement, and was appointed commander of the Newmills-Coalisland Company, Dungannon Battalion, one of his sons being half-company commander. His enthusiasm on behalf of the Empire was inherited by his sons, all of whom (five in number) volunteered on the outbreak of war, and the deceased gentleman had been the recipient of a special congratulatory letter from the King on the subject. He is survived by eight children (five sons and three daughters, one of whom is married to Mr R St J Chadwick, B.L.).

07/02/2019 Pte. James Stewart On the 9th August, Joseph Stewart, for many years sexton of Newmills Parish Church, passed to his rest. Of late years he was very weak, and his son, William, very efficiently performed his duties. His death removes a noted figure from the parish, and his memory for dates and grave plots was wonderful. He felt the loss of his eldest son in the war, but was cheered last year by an unexpected visit from another son in the Canadian Artillery. Four sons carried his remains to the church on Sunday evening, 11th August, and then to the grave dug in the place he had chosen, and a large and representative following testified to the esteem in which his memory is held, and to the sympathy evinced for his sorrowing widow and bereaved children.
