From: "A History of the Scotch Presbyterian Church, St. Gabriel Street,
By Rev. Robert Campbell, Montreal 1887
Andrew McNiece, who was elected a trustee [to St. Gabriel Church] in 1818, and performed the duties of that office with great fidelity, was born and brought up in Kingston, Ontario. Bred to business, he carried on a retail grocery store in St. Paul Street, and prospered; for he was a young man of excellent principles whom his customers could implicitly trust.
He lost his wife, a woman
of much energy of character, and fine business talents, as well as of devoutness,
in the spring of 1882. His sorrow broke him down; and an acute attack of
brain disease seized him and carried him off, while he was on a visit to
Kingston, 6th April, 1883, at the age of 40 years.
