     George Peter Mason married Eunice Cross, daughter of Henry Cross and Eunice Whitcomb Bezanson, on 2 March 1861 at Blandford, Nova Scotia. She was 17.3 George Peter Mason died on 7 April 1880 when he drowned off Tancook Island.4
     A newspaper story about the drowning incident, The Chronicle-Herald, Halifax, Nova Scotia, on 8 April 1880: LUNENBURG. - Yesterday six men belonging to Tancook Island, Lunenburg county, were returning in a centre board lobster boat about 15 feet long from Chester, where they had been for a load of lobster bows and laths. When near home an attempt was made to jibe the sail of the boat, but she was capsized by the strong breeze that was blowing at Long Reef. All the men were thrown into the water. They clung to the upturned craft for a long time.

William Young, who saw the men clinging to the boat, put out in a skiff and rescued three of them, but the others, benumbed by cold, released their hold and perished.

Those drowned were: George Mason, leaving a widow and six children; David Langille, leaving a widow and five children; John Wilson, leaving a widow and six children.

Those saved were Isaac Mason, brother of George, William Thomas and Charles Cross. All are married.

None of the bodies have been recovered.5,6
