________________________________

The following obituary notice is taken from the Westerville (Ohio) Public Opinion. The deceased, a sister of Mr. A.H. Erb of Elmira, was well known in Waterloo where she was born and brought up:

Mary Jane Erb-Scott, wife of Prof. George Scott, of Otterbein university, died Sunday, Jan. 3, 1897, after a few hours illness. She was born in Waterloo, Canada, Sept. 30, 1849, and married May 10, 1872. In early life she became a Christian, and maintained her faith in God and her upright walk among the people until her death. She was a quiet, unassuming, yet forceful Christian woman. About ten years ago she came to Westerville with her husband and daughter, and throughout these years constantly grew in the esteem and affection of all who knew her.

Her death was sudden, and cast a gloom over the whole village. She had been in her usual health until Sunday morning, when she expressed some degree of weakness, and kept her bed most of the forenoon. About eleven o'clock remarked to her husband that she felt sleepy and thought a little sleep would do her good. She was then left in the room for about one half hour, when her husband returned and found her unconscious and breathing with great difficulty. Physicians were immediately summoned, but no relief could be given, and she continued in her unconscious state until 4: 30 p.m. when death released her spirit from the body. While death was thus sudden it is a comfort to all to know that she was a Christian, and that she did not suffer consciously any pain.

Her funeral services were held on Wednesday afternoon in the presence of many friends, and were participated in by President Sanders and Dr. Garet, of the university, Presiding Elder Orr, of Basil, Rev. T.H. Kohr, of the Presbyterian church, Rev. N.D. Creamer, of the M.E. church, and her pastor, the writer. One brother of the deceased was present from Canada, while another brother and aged mother in Canada were in the shadows of grief.

Six professors from the university served as pallbearers, and a quartet tendered appropriate music. Her body was placed in the vault in Otterbein cemetery. Sympathy and prayers are given the bereaved husband and daughter. She is not dead, but liveth, and we may see her again, if faithful to Him who calleth us all unto himself.

12027 Rev. Moses Erb, "was born in Waterloo County, Ontario, about two miles north of Bridgeport, August 6th, 1821. On December 28th, 1841, he was married to Susannah, daughter of Jacob and Polly (Detweiler) Rosenberger. She was born December 14th, 1821. Soon after their marriage they moved about two miles north of Bridgeport, on part of his father's old homestead. Their farm is still known as the old 'Erb Farm'. Here they resided until 1860 when they moved to Berlin on the old 'Bishop Benjamin Eby Farm' which he had purchased from the executors of the late Rev. Christian Eby. Here they resided for a number of years. Later on they left the farm and moved to Berlin where she died June 26th, 1884. On June 16th, 1885, he was again married to Salome, daughter of Rev. George Schmidt. She was first married to the late Joseph C. Hallman. On April 14th, 1854, he was ordained minister of the Mennonite Church for the Martin and Bloomingdale fields of labor. Since then he has been placed on the Berlin Circuit where he still assists in the ministry. Although now seventy-four years of age he is still engaged every Sabbath in his ministerial duties. His method of preaching is plain, practical and impressive, and in the delivery of his sermons he is earnest and always very serious. His style is clear and the various ideas brought forth during his discourses are always so arranged that they are easily understood by the congregation. He is greatly beloved by his own people and highly esteemed by all other parties. His family consisted of three children"

Bloomingdale (Schneider or Snyder) Mennonite Church

Services began in 1824, and in 1826 a first meeting house, known as Schneider's or Snyder's, was built northwest of Bloomingdale, and east of the Grand River, on land (part Lot 7) donated by Jacob Schneider. Henry Weber was the first minister to this congregation, from 1824 until 1854. He was followed by Moses Erb who was ordained minister to the congregation on April 14, 1854. The church building was primarily used as a school in the beginning; the first teacher was John Bauman from Pennsylvania. Church services were held in homes. Dorothy Sauder, in her 1972 history of the church, states that "Prior to 1860, Schneider's was the only [Mennonite] place of worship on the Grand River and, until the 1889 Martin schism, it was one with the Martin congregation with ministers serving both groups" (Sauder 1972: 8). Services were held on a two-week schedule, at one meeting house and then at the other.

Snyder's was affected by division in the church in the early 1870s. The majority of the congregation joined the Reforming (or Reformed) Mennonites, a group organized by Solomon Eby on May 15, 1874, and from 1875-1879 the meeting house was used almost exclusively by them. It was here that the conference was held on March 23, 1875 in which the New Mennonites and the Reforming (or Reformed) Mennonites joined together as the United Mennonites. However, because the original deed to the church property had been lost or perhaps never duly executed, a new deed was drawn up on January 15, 1879, giving ownership of building and property to the group of more conservative Mennonites in the congregation.

The present church was built in 1878 on approximately the same site as the first meeting house. Renovations to the church building were carried out in 1951. One main entrance, to replace the two separate entrances, was part of the changes made. Further improvements were made in 1985. The name of the church is now Bloomingdale Mennonite Church.

Rev. Moses Erb

Rev. Moses Erb, one of the oldest inhabitants of Berlin, died Wednesday evening and was buried Saturday afternoon in the Mennonite churchyard, with an exceptionally large number attending. He was born August 6, 1821 near Bridgeport, and at the age of 20 years, married Hannah Rosenberger, who died in 1884. In 1885, he married Solome Schmidt, a daughter of Preacher George Schmidt, who survives him. In addition to her, he leaves two sons: Menno and Aaron Erb from his first marriage. His youngest son, Moses, died already in 1858. In the year 1860, he moved from the old Erb farm near Bridgeport, to the Eby place in the eastern part of town, later taken over by his son, Menno, and which now is the property of Mr. Moses Betzner. In 1854, he was chosen preacher of the Mennonite congregation, and retained this office until his death.
Last winter, he took ill with flu, which gradually turned into dropsy. He was known favourably far and wide for his many cancer cures.3a

12042 Nicholaus Erb, "(contributed by Levi Reist, Warwick, Pennsylvania) the first known ancestor of this name, came to America with his family in 1722. He was a Swiss by birth and, it is said, his father desired him to become a Catholic priest, but he joined the Mennonites and left his native country on account of religious persecutions. He resided for some time before he emigrated to this country at a place called 'Wester Walter Hoff'. Where this place of temporary residence was located is not known. Probably it may have been a farm on the outposts of some province in Germany that had dangerous neighbors and the times must have been somewhat turbulent as it is known that he lived under the promised protection of a lord or superior, and in case of an unexpected attack it had been agreed that he should give notice by firing a gun. It is also related that, either to try the efficiency of the signal or the faithfulness of his landlord, he fired the gun and in a short time had the satisfaction of seeing his protector with his retainers coming to his assistance as fast as horses could bring them. He settled on Hammar Creek, Warwick Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, near where the mill lately owned by David Erb, now stands. He was a farmer by occupation. His family consisted of five children, four sons and one daughter. Their names were John, Nicholaus, Christian, Jacob, and Magdalena. Nicholaus Erb, the old progenitor of the race, was born in 1679 and died in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in the year 1740, aged 61 years and a few months. (From Rev. Benjamin Eby): Of the sons of John and Nicholaus no information has been received but, no doubt, many of their descendants are at present scattered over the state of Pennsylvania. Of the third son, Christian, we have but little information. He was born in Switzerland in 1703, and tradition has it that he was married to Maria Winger in 1725. She came to this country with her foster parents when quite young. Her parents died in Switzerland when she was only a few months old. Christian and Maria Erb resided in Warwick Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, near his father's homestead. Their family consisted of four children"

Erb.-Noah Erb was born in Waterloo township on June 30, 1839; died at his home in Waterloo, Ont., Aug. 6, 1914; aged 75 y. 1 m. 7 d. On May 6, 1862, he was married to Catharine Knorr, in which union they lived till death parted them, leaving to mourn his loss, a widow, 2 brothers, and 1 sister. About 30 years ago he united with the Mennonite Church, in which he was faithful to the end. He was very hard of hearing and could not understand much in church services, yet his place in church was seldom empty, as long as health and circumstances permitted, as he enjoyed the presence of God's children. May our loss be his eternal gain.Funeral services were conducted at the home on Aug. 8 by Noah Stauffer and at the Waterloo Church by Noah Hunsberger in English from Rev. 14: 13, and by Jonas Snider from Heb. 2: 6 in German.

On Febr. 24th, in Waterloo Co., Canada West, of apoplexy, Bro. Peter Erb, aged 78 years, 1 month and 10 days. He was born in the State of Pennsylvania-was married on the 14th of November 1806, with Susanna Bomberger and emigrated to Canada in 1807, where, as a peaceable citizen, he experienced, with others, the difficulties of a new country. He had, with his wife, who is still living, 11 children, three sons and eight daughters. He enjoyed good health generally until he reached his 75th year, when his strong bodily powers were shattered by a stroke of apoplexy, from which he suffered by repeated attacks until at last, as we hope, he fell asleep in the Lord.

Another well known resident of Berlin was removed by the hand of God this morning when Solomon Erb passed at his home on Church St., after suffering acutely with erysipelas for two weeks. Deceased who was a large strong man, the picture of health, was a traveller in the employ of the Berlin Shirt and Collar Co., and also of the Roschman Button Works, Waterloo. He was, until about 6 years ago engaged in general store keeping in Bloomingdale, at which place he was born 45 years ago, but gave that up the store to go on on the road. He was popular with those who knew him and was a member of the A. O. U. W. and it is understood carried insurance with them to the amount of $2,000. He also carried $1,000 in the Travellers' Association. A widow and seven children most of whom are small, are left to mourn the loss of a kind husband and father, and they have the sympathy of the community in their sad affliction.

She remained a widow for upwards of fifty years and raised her family save John, the second of the children, who died of small-pox when a lad of nine years of age. Two of her children, Mary and John, moved to Canada. Mary was married to Bishop Benjamin Eby and came to Canada in 1807 (see family of Benjamin Eby). John was married to Catharine Sherk and came to Canada in 1816 (see family of John Brubacher). In 1809 the mother paid a visit to her daughter, Mary, and her brothers and sisters who had moved here a few years previously, besides her parents who had their home with old Christian Schneider. Here she remained until September of the same year when she returned to her family in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. In the year 1816 she paid her second visit to this part of the country. This time her youngest son, John, accompanied her. He was unmarried. She remained here two years with her son for whom she kept house when he commenced on his farm which was composed of lot No. 59, German Company's Tract. After his marriage she returned to the land of her fathers to spend her remaining days in serving her Lord more fully so that when the death summons should call her away, she would be ready to meet her Lord in peace. It is related that on her last journey across the Alleghany Mountains she noticed a large rattle snake lying in the middle of the road. She dismounted her pony and with a well aimed blow killed the dangerous serpent, thus proving herself to be a woman of courage."

12110 Blessed with a fine mind, boundless curiosity, and beautiful blue eyes. Donald Horace Erdman was born in Stratford, Ontario on the Summer Solstice, June 21, 1930 to the Reverend and Mrs. Horace H. Erdman, Americans sent by the Lutheran Church to minister in Canada. After a long illness, Don left us on May 20, 2011 for yet another amazing adventure. Don was predeceased by his parents, younger brother Paul Emil Erdman, his former wife Ruth Moyer Erdman, and brother-in-law Philip Kress. He is survived by his wife Barbara Putman Erdman of Waterloo, his sister Lois Erdman Kress, and his sons Michael (Rob), Wayne (Barb), Ralph (Evelyn) and daughter Ginny Erdman Ehrlich (Tim). He delighted in his grandchildren Corey and Sarah Erdman (fiancé Dan) and Daniel and Ryan Ehrlich. He was dearly loved and respected by his stepfamily in the States: Pamela Buhler Cox (Corbett), sons C.J. and Garrett Cox, Paul Henri Buhler III and granddaughter Julieanne Barbara Buhler. He is fondly remembered by the Malleck family and a host of friends around the globe on land, sea and in the air. Although Don spent his formal working life at Labatt Brewery in Waterloo, he developed and perfected a myriad of interesting and challenging avocations. A lifetime interest in flying led to his ownership of several planes and many memorable adventures, including flying his own plane the length of the Grand Canyon below the rim \endash a feat no longer allowed! He was an avid yachtsman; mastering both sail and power boats and teaching Power Squadron courses to aspiring boaters. After his retirement from Labatt's he enjoyed being a charter yacht captain sailing the Caribbean. Friends and family treasure the memory of cruises with "Captain Don". He was an aspiring volunteer engineer on the Waterloo Central Railroad, but ill health prevented this accomplishment. Don was the consummate gentleman whose life epitomized Mark Twain's philosophy: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

The life of this remarkable man will be celebrated on Saturday May 28, 2011 at Mount Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, 29 Westmount Road South, Waterloo. Visitation at the church will be from 10: 00 to 10: 45 a.m. preceding the 11: 00 am memorial service and reception. Memorial donations to ROOF, benefiting homeless and at-risk youth in the Waterloo region would be appreciated by Don and his family and may be sent to ROOF, 242 Queen Street South, Kitchener ON N2G 1W3.

......Several readers phoned or emailed to identify band members they spotted in the photo.

Shirley Erhardt phoned to say her late husband, Joe Erhardt, was a clarinet player in the band when they met in 1955 and earlier played under conductor Charles Thiele with the Waterloo Musical Society Band. Joe, she recalled, was also the Kitchener band's librarian and had that job when a 1959 fire at its upstairs rehearsal hall on King Street East destroyed the band's collection of musical scores.......

12115 Death of Thomas Erly

A gloom was cast over the entire community on Sunday morning last when it became known that Thomas Erly, for many years an esteemed citizen of Waterloo, had passed the bounds of this life to join the majority. The immediate cause of his death was pneumonia. His death was entirely unexpected as but few of our townspeople were aware of his serious illness. On Tuesday last Mr. Erly was to be found at his place of duty at the woollen mills despite the fact that he was feeling unwell. On Wednesday he was instructed by his physician to keep his bed. Owing to an enfeebled constitution brought on by an attack of la grippe some time before, he rapidly grew worse until Sunday morning when death ended his sufferings.

Mr. Erly was born in Yorkshire, England, May 10th 1844, and emigrated to Canada with his wife in 1869 and settled in Waterloo. After a stay here of one and a half years they removed to Ottawa, returning to Waterloo again after an absence of five years to make their home permanently here.
Mr. Erly was a spinner by trade but since coming to Waterloo he filled the position of woolsorter to the Waterloo Woollen Company. He was faithful and diligent in the performance of his duties and was highly esteemed by his fellow employees as was evidenced by their attendance in a body at the funeral, and by the beautiful floral tribute offered consisting of a pillow of carnations and lilies.

The funeral took place on Tuesday and was very largely attended. After a short service in the Methodist church conducted by the Rev. J.A. McLachlan, the remains were interred in the Mount Hope Cemetery.

A widow and two sons are left to mourn the loss of a kind husband and father. Five children predeceased him. The bereaved family will have the sympathy of the entire community in the great and sudden affliction they have been called upon to endure.

12127 CHARLES F. ERNST, electrician, inventor, etc., Hamburg, Ont., was born September 9th, 1853, at Petersburg, Ont. His parents were John and Julia (Zoeger) Ernst. His father was born in France, while his mother was a native of Germany. The former emigrated to this country, in 1827, and was one of the first settlers in Waterloo county. After leaving the public school, Mr. Ernst took a complete course in the Commercial College, Toronto, in 1870, but has since applied himself with great diligence, to private study. He devoted ten years to the dry goods business, and subsequently travelled eleven years in the wholesale hat and fur line,, but being a born genius, with an inventive mind, he naturally turned his attention to the study of electricity. For two years he was travelling salesman for the Ball Electric Light Company, in the supply line, and now represents the National and Standard Carbon companies, of Cleveland, Ohio, and the Electrical Supply Company, of Chicago, Ill. He is also proprietor of the Hamburg Electric Light plant. Mr. Ernst has numerous electrical inventions in course of construction, but the invention which is perhaps attracting more attention on this continent, than any other of late years, is his "Reliance Fire Escape and Hoist, and Fireman's Auxiliary." This wonderful contrivance was endorsed and recommended by a committee on exhibits, at the National Firemen's and Engineers' Associations' Convention, held at Louisville, Ky., U.S.A., October, 1892, where Mr. Ernst was present with a model. It is over ten years since Mr. Ernst first conceived the idea of a fire escape, that would insure the absolute safety of those using it, and the result of his fertile brain is certainly a boon to mankind. He is a Free Mason and a Forester, and is a musical composer of considerable note. He was married, on the 16th of July, 1876, to Miss Mary A. Laschinger, daughter of Joseph Laschinger, of Hamburg, Ont., by whom he has six children, five sons and one daughter.

The citizens of New Hamburg were considerably moved when the despatch was received on Monday that Mr. Chas. F. Ernst, a former citizen of our town but of late of Detroit, Mich. and who was but in the prime of his life had been claimed by that grim monster death, which sad occurrence had taken place at Detroit on Sunday, inflammation of the lungs having been the cause of the same. His remains were brought here yesterday forenoon, and laid to rest in the Evangelical cemetery at 2 o'clock in the afternoon in the presence of many of his friends, who had come to have a last glance at the face they once knew so well, the funeral having taken place from the residence of Mr. J. Laschinger. The deceased, who was the youngest son of the late John Ernst, of Petersburg, was 45 years old and was married to a Miss Laschinger, sister of Mr. Jacob Laschinger. Many years ago he conducted a general store at Tavistock, after retirement from which he had been travelling most of the time for different wholesale houses in Canada but the last few years, and since leaving New Hamburg, he represented an American house, dealing in electric apparatuses and his territory comprised a great part of the United States and all Canada, with headquarters at Detroit. While a citizen here it was to his enterprising spirit that we owed the introduction of our electric light system; in public matters he always evidenced great interest and was the first president of the once New Hamburg Poultry Association. He leaves a wife and six children to mourn their loss of a kind husband and an indignant father. We extend to the bereaved family our heartfelt sympathy.

12129 Death of Mr. Christian Ernst, Postmaster

Early on Tuesday morning the news spread over our town, announcing the death of Mr. Christian Ernst, postmaster, which was received with deep regret by the whole community, as his numerous friends in the village and vicinity did not expect that the end would come so soon, as on the previous day he was resting well until after midnight, when he grew suddenly worse; his family was then summoned to his bedside and at the hour of three o'clock he passed peacefully away, at the age of 65 years. Deceased was born in Petersburg, Wilmot Township, and was the second son of the late John Ernst, Esq., of the prominent family, which was widely known throughout this district in the early days of this country. In 1854 he was married to Catherine Wilker, and for a number of years he carried on an extensive merchant and milling business in the village of New Dundee until 1862, when he removed with his family to this town and entered into business here in a general store of dry goods and hardware, and was also connected with the flax-milling business in Zurich and other places in Huron county. He held the postmastership of this village for thirty-three years and in that office he was a faithful servant to the Government and the public. For a number of years he was a member of our town council and lent a helping hand for the promotion of the welfare and the best interest of the town. In religion he was an active member of the Lutheran church. He leaves a wife and three sons, Jacob, a partner in the firm of Ernst & Cressman; John P., who officiates as his deputy in the post office, and Henry A., a representative of Eby, Blain & Co., Toronto, who mourn the loss of a kind husband and father. They have the sympathy of the community in their sad bereavement. His remains will be laid to rest in the village cemetery this afternoon at two o'clock.

Ernst.--Daniel B. Ernst, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Ernst of Heidelberg, Ont., was born Feb. 3, 1865; died Jan. 2, 1927; aged 61 y. 10 m. 30 d. His first wife, Fanny Rudy, died about 10 years ago. Later he married Barbara Sauder, widow of Moses Sauder of New Holland, Pa. Besides the widow he leaves the 5 sons, 2 daughters, 1 sister, and 3 brothers. The oldest son, Josiah, died 1917. Bro. Ernst united with the Mennonite Church in his youth, and remained a faithful member to the end. Nearly two years ago he began to be troubled with a sore toe, which later was found to be cancer. After months of intense suffering it was decided to amputate his leg below the knee. This was done last summer and at first it seemed as if he would get well, but later he again began to fail and soon there were signs of internal cancers, which were the cause of his death. He possessed a wonderful constitution, great physical strength, and an unusually sweet and cheerful disposition. He was ready and anxious to leave this world and be with his Savior.

12136 Large Society Funeral

On Sunday last the mortal remains of the late Frederick W. Ernst were interred with Masonic Old Fellows and Foresters rites in the cemetery at Waterloo. The deceased had been in the hotel business in Hanover for nearly a year and was doing a prosperous trade. He was only 27 years and 10 months old and leaves a wife and a child to mourn his untimely loss. Previous to going to Hanover, he assisted his mother here, carrying on the Queen's hotel of this place under the name of Ernst Bros. His father was the late John Ernst, formerly an hotel-keeper here. The deceased was very popular with all who knew him, he was an active member of the Masonic fraternity also the Odd Fellows and Foresters belonging to the lodges here, he was also a splendid Cricketer and played many fine games with the Hamburg Cricket Club, he was a consistent conservative in politics. The deceased died suddenly of heart disease at Hanover last Thursday morning, he had been ailing slightly for a day or two before his death, but did not complain and was about his business as usual. On the morning of his death, he dropped over on his bed without an utterance, his wife being near him caught him in her arms as he fell gently over. His wife is the daughter of Mr. Fred Schlote, retired butcher, of Waterloo, and it was her desire that her late husband should be buried in Waterloo. In accordance with this the different fraternities here, decided to charter a special train to enable them to attend the funeral. There were visiting brethern from Milverton, Stratford, Tavistock, Shakespeare, Bright, Plattsville, Hamburg, Baden, Berlin and Waterloo. About 250 Foresters took part in the procession, about 75 Odd Fellows and 60 Masons were present, the two latter bodies would have been consistently augmented if it had been more thoroughly known in Berlin. A long line of carriages and friends followed the hearse. The Lutheran church choir sang with great taste one or two suitable selections before the funeral moved off from Mr. Schlote's residence. The Rev. Mr. Christiansen, Lutheran Minister, conducted the burial services and the Masons, Odd Fellows, and Foresters each followed with their own respective burial ceremonies at the grave after which they reformed and marched quietly back to their respective lodge rooms and dispersed. The special train left for home at six p.m. The pall bearers were Messrs. John R. Feick, F. H. McCallum, Louis Ritz, Wm. Walker, Wm. Bishop and John R. Katzenmeier.

12141 It is our sad duty this week to chronicle the death of Mr. Henry Ernst, of the "Hotel National", Plattsville, who has been ailing and gradually sinking for some time past, his body having wasted away to almost a mere skeleton. He died last Friday morning at the age of 49, surrounded by the members of his family and some of the immediate relatives. The deceased, who was a son of the late John Ernst, sen., and son-in-law of the late Frederick Merner, and half-brother to our postmaster, Mr. Chr. Ernst, was a highly esteemed citizen of Plattsville and well known for his sterling qualities as a hotel keeper, having kept his hotel in the true sense of the term. He was an ardent and useful member of the I.O.O.F. and A.F. & A.M. orders, in fact one of the organizers of the former, and both lodges had turned out in great numbers to give their departed brother the last "honors". Rev. Mr. Johnson, of Chesterfield, the conducting minister, preached a very able and appropriate sermon in the hall at Plattsville, previous to the proceeding of the funeral to New Hamburg, where the remains of our late friend were laid to rest in the Evangelical cemetery. The large concourse of people both in Plattsville and New Hamburg was a very eloquent factor as to the esteem in which he was held, the number of people at the cemetery being so large as to make it impossible for most of them only to get near the grave. The deceased leaves to mourn his death a sorrowing wife and two children and a host of relatives, to whom we extend our sincere sympathies, but especially to his family in their so sad bereavement of a kind and devoted husband and a loving father.

12147 ERNST & CRESSMAN.

These gentlemen possess individually those qualities that seem to complement each other and thus render their partnership a pronounced commercial success. They conduct a general store and their good judgment and level headed business methods have won for them a generous slice of trade. It is about a dozen years since Mr. Noah Cressman, then a prosperous merchant in an adjacent village, came to New Hamburg and joined hands with Mr. Jacob Ernst, who for over a score of years had been prominent in New Hamburg commercial life. Their stock of dry goods, groceries and crockery is always carefully selected and this fact, with fair prices and square dealing, has gained for them the confidence of the buying public. "It is a good store," say those who know. Mr. Ernst is a member of the Public School Board, having been secretary since 1888 and Treasurer since 1901.3a

12150 The Late John Ernst

John Ernst, Sr., who died at New Hamburg on the 1st inst., was born at Grand Village, near Belford, Lorraine, France, on the 4th of Dec., 1807. He emigrated to America in the year 1827, landing in New York in the same year, where he remained but one year, long enough to enable him to learn the English language somewhat. He came to Wilmot township in 1838 where he took up land, cleared his lot, and remained on the same for a long time. During his time there the cholera (1837) broke out, and while the sad epidemic lasted he helped to bury many of his neighbours, even making coffins from rough lumber and taking them to the burying ground with his ox team, and attending to the burial all by himself. After that he removed to Petersburg, where he engaged in the general store business and hotel keeping. Some time after that he owned and run the New Dundee mills, also the tannery at Petersburg. He was a man of good judgement, and a man on whose word you could rely. Any appointment he made he was sure to fulfill; he was a man of temperate habits although a hotel keeper for over 40 years. Some years ago he withdrew from actual business pursuits, but was always ready to enter into conversation on the topics of the day, as well as render any assistance where needed if at all in his power to do so. About six weeks ago he was attacked with bronchitis, then heart trouble set in from which he never rallied. Although far advanced in years he bore his sufferings with Christian fortitude and was prepared to meet his Maker. In years gone by he held different municipal offices, was Justice of the Peace and also issuer of marriage licences. He was postmaster at Petersburg for 44 years, and was one of the first postmasters in the County of Waterloo. In politics he was a staunch Conservative, and was ever ready to do a good turn for his party. He belonged to the Masonic fraternity and was an old member of that body. His remains were taken to Petersburg, for internment on Wednesday Feb. 3rd. He leaves one daughter and three sons to mourn his loss; his wife preceded him some fifteen years ago.

12156 "Before coming to America in 1842, Johann Adam Ernst was a cobbler's apprentice in Bavaria. Learning of the American Lutherans' need and determined to offer his services, he was trained as a teacher by Pastor Wilhelm Loehe.

When Adam Ernst came to New York, he met Reverend F. Winkler who suggested Ernst go to the theological seminary in Columbus, Ohio. He did just that; became a teacher and continued his theological studies. From one of his students, he learned that there was nearby, a community of people from his homeland who were in need of ministerial services, and so began his ministery in 1843.

In Cleveland, Ohio, in 1845, at a conference of Reverend Loehe's men, Pastor Ernst was elected as one of the delegates to meet with Dr. Carl Ferdinand Wilhelm Walther. Reverend Ernst met with Dr. Walther and his associates in St. Louis, Missouri, and as a result, Pastor Adam Ernst became a charter member of the Missouri Synod by signing their first constitution in 1847.

He then accepted a call to Eden of Erie County, New York and served there at "St. Paul's Lutheran Church" from 1849 to 1857. From here Reverend Ernst visited neighboring settlements including the town of Olean in Cattaraugus County and organized "Emanuel Lutheran Church" in 1857. Also crossing over into Ontario, Canada, he served at, organized or assisted in the organization of pastorates at Fisherville, Delhi and Elmira.

At Delhi (now Rhineland) Pastor Ernst gave his first sermon on February 28, 1854. Ernst wrote their first constitution, under which they became "St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Congregation" on April 3, 1854 and in June of that year became affiliated with the Missouri Synod. Pastor Ernst served here until 1855.

In Elmira, Reverend Ernst secured Pastor H. Wichmann to serve at "St. James". A split in this group resulted in the formation of "St. Paul's" in 1861.

Following a recovery from a throat ailment, during which time he had to fall back on his trade of shoemaking, Reverend Ernst then accepted a call to "St. John's Lutheran Church" in Euclid Township, Cayahoga County, Ohio and served there from 1860 to 1863.

Going now back into Canada, Reverend Adam Ernst took a call to minister to "St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church" in Elmira in Wilmot Township, Waterloo County, Ontario and was installed as Pastor on August 2, 1863.

From Elmira, Pastor Ernst also served at "Trinity Lutheran Church" of Floradale and to this parish he added Salem and Linwood.

With the assistance of Pastor F. Dubpernell, Reverend Ernst served "St. Paul's Congregation" of Wellesley in 1864, resulting in St. Paul's joining the Missouri Synod.

As a result of the untimely death of Reverend H. Wichmann in 1863, the people of Wallace Township who had been meeting in Shipley, were left without a Pastor. "St. Paul's Lutheran Church" of what is now Kurtzville was organized by Pastor Ernst in 1864. In 1865, Pastor Ernst sent Reverend F. Dubpernell to become their first resident Pastor.

January 1, 1865, Pastor Ernst was called by a congregation at Poole. He later drew up a constitution and "St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church at Poole" was formed.

Approached by the "Emanuel" congregation at Petersburg in 1867, Pastor Ernst acquired for them the services of Reverend H. Koch, who now served at Wellesley.

On September 22, 1867 the people of the congregation in Kitchener (then Berlin), interviewed Reverend Ernst and he preached for them for the first time on October 13, 1867. Under the guidance of Pastor Ernst, the congregation adopted the new name of "St. Paul's".

Reverend Ernst now covered a parish consisting of not only Floradale-Salem-Linwood until 1873, but also of his flocks at St. Paul's in Elmira and St. Paul's of Kitchener, serving both of these latter congregations until 1881.

From his "home" church in Elmira, Pastor Ernst was instrumental in beginning the Ontario District of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, organized in 1879, and he was its first President, serving in that office until 1882.

Upon his return to Ohio in 1882, Reverend Ernst took up residence in Euclid Township of Cayahoga County.

Reverend Adam Ernst's wife, Judith died in November of 1894 and he just two months later in January of 1895."1a

12161 Death of Mrs. Alex Fraser

We regret to chronicle the death of Julia Ernst, beloved wife of Mr. Alexander Fraser, which took place at her home on Tuesday morning following an illness of several months' duration, due to heart disease. The late Mrs. Fraser was born in Petersburg, a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Ernst. She came to New Hamburg with her parents in her early youth and had since been an esteemed resident of the Village. She was a devoted adherent of the Lutheran faith and gave much of her time in church activities. During her long residence in New Hamburg she endeared herself to a large circle of friends who deeply regret her demise. She was married fifty years ago to Mr. Alex Fraser who besides two sons, John W., of Kitchener, and Fleming, of New York City, are left to mourn her departure. She also leaves five sisters and one brother, namely Mrs. Ammon Merner, of Waterloo, Mrs. Isaac Betzner and Mrs. A. Rebelski, of New Hamburg and Mrs. A. Urquhart, Miss Minnie, Miss Marion and William Ernst of Toronto. The funeral was held on Thursday afternoon from her late home. The funeral obsequies were conducted by Rev. W. Daib, pastor of St. Peter's Lutheran Church, with internment in Riverside cemetery. Many beautiful floral tributes, sent by sympathizing friends, testified to the esteem in which the late Mrs. Fraser was held by her many friends.

12175 Peter Ernst - Death of Peter Ernst, Esq., of Baden. We very much regret to announce the death on Sunday evening last of the above gentleman. From information which has been forwarded us, we learn that Mr. Ernst had gone that evening to Hamburg to see some friends, and while sitting talking in the sitting room of Seyler's Hotel he suddenly complained of dizziness. Mr. S. Morner, to whom he was talking, observing that he seemed likely to fall off his chair, caught him and laid him on a sofa in the room, and at once summoned assistance, and secured medical aid, but all was of no avail, and after a few gasping breaths death came. Disease of the heart or apoplexy is supposed to have been the cause. Mr. Ernst was an active, pushing business man, largely respected by all who knew him. For many years he has occupied a very prominent position in the Township of Wilmot. His untimely and fearfully sudden death has thrown a gloom over the locality where he was so well known, and where most of his life had been spent. The sympathy of the deceased gentleman's many friends is heartily tendered to his family and relatives.

Stanley Park United Brethren in Christ Church

A United Brethren in Christ missionary, Rev. Israel Sloan, is reported to have organized a class in Berlin in 1855. The Berlin congregation later, c.1875, bought a small frame church at the corner of Benton and Church Streets which had been built in 1841 by the Wesleyan Methodists for their own use.
There was a split in the United Brethren in Christ Church in 1889 which resulted in two groups each calling themselves the United Brethren in Christ. One group joined the Congregationals in 1906. The other group remained United Brethren in Christ until November 16, 1946 when most congregations of the United Brethren in Christ organization joined with the Evangelical Church to form the Evangelical United Brethren Church, later to join with the United Church on January 1, 1968. The Stanley Park congregation is one of three United Brethren in Christ Churches in Waterloo County today. The others are New Dundee and Roseville. The headquarters of the church is in Huntington, Indiana.
After the split in 1889 land on Church Street was donated to the congregation by one of their number, Moses Eschleman. The congregation held services in a frame house on the property until 1893 when a large brick church was built at 35 Alma Street. The church was named Alma Street Church of the United Brethren in Christ (Uttley 1937: 140). (Alma Street is now Charles Street.) A sod turning ceremony was held on March 15, 1970 for a new church on Dreger Avenue in Kitchener. The first service in the new church was held on August 9, 1970; dedication services were conducted on November 29, 1970 by Bishop Clyde Meadows from the Church headquarters in Huntington, Indiana. Rev. Keith Nicholson was pastor when the new Stanley Park United Brethren in Christ Church was built in 1970. The Alma Street church was sold in 1970 and is now the International Gospel Centre.

George Esson is known as one of Preston's pioneers in photography and is the father of James Esson of the Canada's elite photographers of the 19th century. He also was at times a book-binder, telegraph operator, school teacher and peddler. He entered the photography occupation in the 1840's. He returned to Scotland in 1840 through 1850 to photograph a series of landscapes. He opened about 1852 a dauerreotype gallery his home at 113 Queen St., in Preston which he operated until about 1874 when his son James took control.

George Esson
 
12235 James Esson; Inducted 1995

James Esson was born on 10 Aug 1853, one of six children of noted Preston photographer George Esson and his wife Jane. The elder Esson opened a daguerre type gallery in about 1852 and continued with it until 1870 when his son James took over the business apparently first operating it from the family home on Queen Street.

James Esson quickly made a name for himself as an "artist", that is, someone who "creates" a picture as opposed to someone who merely "takes" a picture. His first subjects were architectural and scenic views, subjects which later formed the basis of his famous stereoscopic views that were so popular in the late 19th century.

In 1878 an advertisement in the "County of Waterloo Gazetteer and Directory" announced "James Esson Photographer, Publisher and dealer in Stereoscopic Views, C.D.V. Statuary, Monumental and Headstone Designs. Queen Street - Preston - Ontario." Within three years Mr. Esson had added "portrait artist" to his list.

In 1884, at the age of 30, Mr Esson opened a studio at 105 King Street naming it the Atelier. So excellent was his work that he soon attained a reputation for excellence and attracted to his studio patrons of political and social distinction from as far away as Ottawa and Montreal. The Marquis of Lorne and Princess Louise, members of the Senate and Commons, famous stage artists and prominent ladies and gentlemen were numbered among Mr Esson's clients.

His reputation brought Preston, which was elsewhere described as "not indicative of much energy or enterprise", a certain distinction and his famous "Atelier" became one of Preston's prominent commercial buildings. As such, it was featured as an individual illustration on a bird's-eye view map of Preston published c.1895. In May 1892 the Atelier was described in "The Canadian Photographic Journal" as "three storeys high, built of red brick and trimmed with Credit Valley brownstone". Visitors to the Atelier first entered the office, which is described as "a cosy cheerful looking" fairly spacious room. "The counter, desk, screen and wainscotting, all of which are quartered oak, are beautifully carved from special designs". A "massive oak stairway" led to the bright studio with ample natural light allowed to enter through a skylight of "ground glass". Mr Esson's exclusive use of natural light added a special feel to his photographs and earned him the nickname "The Lightman".

In the late 1870's and the early 1880's, Mr Esson travelled across Canada and the United States taking hundreds of stereoviews of landscapes, buildings, street scenes and parks that were arranged into some 15 geographic or thematic series including cities such as Toronto, Guelph and Galt and scenes of the Muskoka District, the Northern Lakes, the Thousand Islands, Central Park in New York, and what he described as "Picturesque America", "Picturesque Canada" and "Gems of Statuary".

Mr Esson used a binocular camera fitted with two lenses several inches apart to record the same scene from slightly different angles roughly corresponding to the perspective of human eyes. The resultant double image would then produce a three-dimensional result when viewed through a stereoscope, a common appliance in Victorian households. It has been noted that Mr Esson was one of only a very small number of Canadian photographers to produce the stereoviews that were common in both Britian and the United States at the time. It is estimated that Mr Esson's collection, including stereoviews, numbered in the vicinity of 5000 images, of which only a fraction now remain.

Through these stereoviews Mr Esson gained a "world-wide" reputation as a landscape photographer and these photographs combined with his portrait photographs created a body of work that placed him, in the eyes of many, among the foremost photographers of his day.

A fall suffered in 1916 forced Mr Esson into retirement and he asked his nephew, Elliot Law to take over his business. In 1920, Mr Esson decided to leave Preston, sold his "Atelier" and moved to Toronto. He died there on 12 Sept. 1933 and is buried in Prospect Cemetery.

12236 James like his father was a photographer, he taking over from his father in 1874. He was known as an artist photographer and took many stereoscopic pictures that were very popular in the 19th century. He portraits were reknown and many of Canada's elite chose him to make their formal photographs. He left Preston in 1920 after a fall in 1916 forced his retirement.

_________________

James Esson of Preston was one of Canada's best known and most accomplished portrait photographers. His father, George Esson, was one of the first photographers in Canada in the 1840s.

His first studio was in the old family homestead, 113 Queen Street. In 1884 he built at 105 King Street one of the finest portrait studios in Canada at that time. He travelled to many parts of Ontario taking architectural and scenic views for stereopticons.

Before the days of the automobile, distinguished people of many professions came to have their portraits taken by him. He also did miniatures on ivory for lockets and brooches after the style of the seventeenth century.

He photographed the Marquis of Lorne and the Princess Louise while the Marquis was Governor-General of Canada and while they were visiting at Cruikston Park. Esson retired in 1916.

ESSON'S ATELIER, Preston, Ontario

It is fact beyond dispute that this is one of the best equipped galleries in the Dominion, and for fine work is unsurpassed in America. It is patronized by the best people from all parts of the Dominion. Mr. Esson enjoys the distinction of being photo artist to royalty, hence for fine work, there is no reason why we should go elsewhere. He has the high reputation for producing the finest steroscopic views of natural scenery, and his comic slides are in great variety, so with his rare novelties in the photographic art line, and like his Atelier, enjoy a wide popularity in Canada and Great Britain.

Later on he held a position in various business colleges and finally became principal. He obtained ownership of the business college in Berlin (now Kitchener) where he entered the municipal field and became in 1913-1914 its Chief Magistrate. He entered the field for federal honors in 1917 as the Independent Liberal standard bearer and was successful.

12289 EWART, JAMES BELL, businessman, justice of the peace, office holder, politician, and gentleman farmer; b. c. 1801 in Surrey, England; m. 23 May 1832 Mary Margaret Crooks, daughter of James Crooks, and they had at least two sons and two daughters; d. 17 Dec. 1853 in Dundas, Upper Canada, and was buried at nearby Crooks' Hollow (near present-day Greensville).

In 1817 James Bell Ewart immigrated to Upper Canada, where he accepted a clerkship in the large mercantile firm of Thomas Clark* and Samuel Street* at Niagara (Niagara-on-the-Lake). Three years later, while still in their employ, he opened a general store in Coote's Paradise (Dundas), near the head of Lake Ontario. He did not move there, however, until 1825, when he left Clark and Street and purchased the Dundas Mills from the estate of Richard Hatt*.

Ewart quickly dominated business at Dundas. Although his success was based on a diversity of enterprise, his principal activities were grain trading and milling at various locations throughout the western regions of the province. Besides the grist-mill at Dundas, with its ancillary cooperage, distillery, and blacksmith shop, he owned mills in Waterloo Township, Galt (Cambridge), Dawn Mills, St George, and Ayr. In partnership with John Gartshore, Ewart financed the establishment of the large Dundas Foundry in 1838. As part of his early mercantile activity he also operated a private bank; then, from 1832 to 1844, he held the Dundas agency of the Commercial Bank of the Midland District, of which he was president in 1841. He took up the agency in Dundas of the Bank of British North America in 1844, possibly because of that institution's more extensive operations in the western section of Upper Canada.

Like many general merchants of the period, Ewart acted as a land agent for non-resident clients and business associates. A major landowner in Dundas, he also built up extensive property holdings throughout Upper Canada, notably in Waterloo, West Oxford, and Puslinch townships. Shortly before his death he had begun his most ambitious real estate venture, the development of land on Lake Simcoe (now the village of Bell Ewart) into a major port and a depot on the Ontario, Simcoe and Huron Union Rail-road.

Ewart actively supported transportation projects which would enhance the commercial position of Dundas and facilitate his grain trade. A shareholder in the Desjardins Canal Company [see Pierre Desjardins*], he was also a founding director of two road companies: the Guelph and Dundas (incorporated in 1847) and the Dundas and Paris (1850). He was an early promoter of the London and Gore Rail Road (1834) and a director of its successor, the Great Western Rail-Road. Ewart and Sir Allan Napier MacNab* travelled to Great Britain in 1845, at the height of its boom in railway shares, to arrange financing for the Great Western. They were joined in this effort by Peter Buchanan of Glasgow and Malcolm Cowan, a London solicitor. The collapse of the boom that year panicked investors, but Ewart remained sanguine and urged cautious progress on the line which, he maintained, was "no doubt the best in British North America."

As Dundas's leading businessman of the period, Ewart was highly visible in the community's social and political life. He belonged to the St Andrew's Society, keenly supporting its curling club, and was an active member of the Church of England. The holder of a number of offices and appointments, he was first commissioned a justice of the peace in 1833; from 20 Dec. 1837 to his death he served as postmaster of Dundas. He led the movement for its incorporation as a town in 1847 and two years later succeeded John Paterson as president of the town council.
For most of his career Ewart was a wealthy man; in 1845 his financial worth was estimated at £100,000. His commercial and public success permitted him to enjoy the role of a gentleman farmer at his beloved Carfin Farm, near Dundas, where he raised prizewinning cattle. The farm, which he bequeathed to his eldest son, James Bell, was the part of his estate for which Ewart left the most carefully detailed instructions in his will in 1852, at which time his other interests were suffering. He had experienced heavy losses in the wheat market and in 1846 both Galt Mills and Gartshore's founding shops in Dundas had burned. Although he was able to finance the reconstruction of both facilities, he was forced to assume a heavy burden of indebtedness on mortgages (£5,000) against his Dundas property alone. At his death the mortgages had not been retired and his creditors were compelled to sue his estate.

12293 ELSIE MARIE BAUER August 22, 1908 - February 22, 2008 Elsie was born in Schmiedeberg then part of Germany. At age four she emigrated with her parents Albert and Ada Exner, her two sisters, Martha (Brezina) and Hedwig (Lapp), and brother, Richard, to Berlin Ontario. She was raised in an atmosphere of love and good cheer that was spiritedly celebrated at regular gatherings of friends and family. She was proud of finishing grade nine at the top of her class and then completing a typing and shorthand course at a business college. Elsie went on after school to work as a secretary at Western Shoe (forerunner of Bauer skate) and later married her boss Gordon Bauer in 1934 after a ten year courtship. They remained happily married until Gordon's death in 1971. She spent a very enjoyable part of her life at her cottage in Kincardine. There she taught her grandchildren to play cards, kvetch and appreciate swimming in a lake that was sometimes "brisk" or "refreshing" but never cold. She was in the water in her 99th year, kicking and screaming, but happy and pleased. Elsie was the last of her generation - predeceased by parents and siblings; her husband and his brothers and sisters; and daughter, Shirley (Bews). She is remembered fondly and thankfully for her continued good cheer, her unconditional love, her kindness and optimism and her love of a good party. She is mourned by her son, Bruce; the grandchildren who always made her eyes sparkle (Gavin in Japan, Steve in Toronto and Rick in Edmonton); the "borrowed" son, Marc; family; friends; the compassionate staff at Pinehaven Nursing Home; and her cottage community. Her place is now in our hearts and with those who went before her. Say goodbye and thanks for the memories at the Erb & Good Family Funeral Home , 171 King Street South, Waterloo, on Tuesday, February 26, 2008, from 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held on Wednesday, February 27 at 2 p.m. in the chapel of the funeral home followed by a reception.

Mom was a mother, grandmother, great and great-great-grandmother, friend, mentor, role model and the family rock. Mom was an exceptional woman. Her unbelievable strength and her interest in all things and people are fondly remembered by her children, Kathy Wellsman, Janet (Harvey) Thomson (Markham, Ontario) and Mark (Paula) Wellsman; her loving grandchildren Sherry (Jerry) Thorpe of Owensboro, Kentucky, Bradley (Mandy) Wellsman, Sean Thomson (Markham, Ontario, Billy and Mark Mitchell and their children (Huntsville, Ontario), great-grandchildren, Katie-Sue (Chris), Randy (Aeriel), as well as her great-great-grandson Benjamin all residing in United States. Mom was predeceased by dad, husband William (Bill) (2008) and her loving daughter Mary-Ann (1997). The last surviving member of her family's generation, her four brothers and two sisters, also predeceased her. Mom enjoyed all visits from family, friends and neighbours, especially daily visits from neighbour and best friend Julia Rose. Mom frequently had either a book, was mending something for somebody or had knitting needles in hand. Cooking and baking (and sharing recipes) for family or friends was her passion. Nothing was more important to Mom than her family and we all have countless amazing memories of our wonderful times together. Mom taught and guided us well. Cremation has taken place. We invite all of Eileen's family and friends to join our tea party luncheon to celebrate Eileen's Life on Tuesday, August 15, 2017, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m., at Coutts Funeral Home, 96 St Andrews Street, Cambridge, Ontario.

12314 DEATH OF GEORGE FACH

This week Death has claimed one of our most promising young citizens, in the person of George D. youngest son of Jacob and Catherine Fach. George had but recently obtained his diploma from the Galt Business College and two weeks ago secured the position of bookkeeper, for Clare Bros & Co. He was taken ill first on Thursday of last week, with peritonitis, but nothing serious was thought of it till Monday, when he gradually grew weaker and kept getting worse till death put an end to his suffering on Wednesday evening, at about 11.30 o'clock, at the early age of 17 years and 23 days. Deceased was well and most favorably known to all the younger folks of Preston. He was of a quiet, unobtrusive disposition, but a lad who once known, gained the respect and friendship of all with whom he came in contact. Speaking feelingly of his decease one of his late employers remarked that he had never employed a young man in whom he placed more reliance. He was a steady, honest worker and clever for the brief experience he had had. Great sympathy is expressed for Mr. and Mrs. Fach in their bereavement. Two years ago last, September, they lost another son, Louis Philip, who died of diptheria, at the age of 12 years.

12320 A WATERLOO PIONEER GONE

Mr. Peter Fach, Sr. Died at His Preston Home in Preston Yesterday


One of the oldest and most respected pioneers of the County of Waterloo passed away Thursday, in the person of Peter Fach, Eagle street, Preston. Mr. Fach had been ailing for about nine months, but not until five weeks ago, was he compelled to take to bed. For the past two weeks he had not been able to eat anything, which made him suffer somewhat and his death was not unexpected. The cause of death was a growth on the stomach. Mr. Fach was born in Germany, seventy two years ago and came to Waterloo County, when he was twenty three. By great energy and much hardship and hard work, he cleared a farm In Waterloo Township, which today is the equal of any farm in the county. When he was twenty four, he took unto himself a wife, who, with eleven children, survive him. Mr. Fach lived upon the farm until two years ago, when he moved to Preston and has since lived a retired life. Deceased was an industrious and persevering man and was well liked by all for his kind ways and deeds. The family are left in comfortable circumstances, In religion, he was a Roman Catholic. Mr. Fach's familiar figure and jovial manner will be missed in Galt, where he was a frequent and welcome visitor. The funeral took place from his late residence, Eagle street, on Sunday, at 2 p.m., to Preston cemetery.

12329 The funeral of the late Joseph P Fahnlender, aged 58, who died at his home at 420 Oak street at 6 o'clock yesterday morning, will be held from St. Michael's church on Monday morning at 9 o'clock, the procession leaving the home at 8 a.m. Mr. Fahnlender was the oldest newspaper man from point of service in North Dakota, and had worked at his trade in the job department of the Herald (3rd Street East, corner of Kittson avenue) until last October, when he was forced to cease because of illness with cancer of the throat. He bore his disease with wonderful fortitude, and his strong constitution allowed him to remain conscious until death overtook him.

Grand Forks Herald - George B Winship, pres.; W M Scott, v-pres.; Cyrus R Hunter sec-tres.

____________________________

The newspaper and printing career of Mr. Fahnlender is one that has been closely identified with the development of the industry in the northwest. Among other features of his work was the establishment of the first newspaper published in the city of Devils Lake, where he resided a number of years ago.

Mr. Fahnlender also operated a newspaper plant in Brainerd, Minnesota; a job plant at St. Cloud, Minnesota; and he was employed at Crookston, Fargo, Wahpeton, Cando and numerous other cities and towns in this state and in Minnesota.

Mr. Fahnlender was also a conscientious worker, and a capable man in his trade. He served in many important capacities during his printing career, and acquitted himself creditably.

The ups and downs of the northwest of the early days, of course, had their effects upon the men who were pioneering -- and Joe prospered and suffered from time to time -- in about the same proportion as others who were engaged in the early work of building up the northwest.

Aged 58 years at the time of his death, Mr. Fahnlender had been engaged in the printing work from the time he was 15 years old -- or over a period of forty-three years. Mr. Fahnlender was born in St. Clémento [St. Clements], Canada, in 1856. He came to the United States with his parents in 1876.

His mother, three sisters and a brother survive him, in addition to his wife and two daughters, Gladys and Florence, and two sons, Eugene of Staples, Minn., and Edward of Moorhead, Minn. Mrs. Peter Wild of Osnabrock, and Mrs. J Marquart of Georgetown, Minn., and Mrs. M Hohnadel of Georgetown are the surviving sisters, and John Fahnlander of Georgetown, Minn., is the surviving brother. His aged mother also resides at Georgetown.

12330 The Fahnlanders came from Bavaria, Germany, and settled in Neustad, Ontario. There, Leonard Fahnlander (1816-1899) met and married Augusta Gulde. In 1876 they came to Dakota Territory with their seven children: John (1858-1933), Catherine (1860-1940), Elizabeth (1862- ), Philip (1864-1890), Joseph, Mary, and Frank (1873-1881). They traveled by boat to Duluth, then overland to the Dakota Territory. They settled in Argusville, north of Fargo. Catherine worked in a hotel in nearby Grandin where she met Peter Wild.

Leonard died when he was eighty-three years old, having been a pioneer settler in the Red River Valley. Augusta became blind in later life, dying in 1916, aged 86.

On his way to the Amiens front, Fahrenkopf marched through a French village lined with U.S. troops who cheered themselves hoarse. The Canadians cheered back.

Days later a German shell killed him in what was likely his first combat. He survived less than three weeks on the Western Front.

12337 Passing of James G. Fair Mourned by Community - With the sudden passing of James Gladstone Fair, early Monday morning, this village lost one of its most prominent and valued native sons. He had been in ill health for several years but his passing was entirely unexpected. Born in Ayr, a son of William Fair, and Jane Gladstone, he received his education here and as a young man, after learning his trade in Brantford, opened a watch repairing shop in the Masonic Building.

Conducted Business For 56 Years

After a period of one year, he moved to the stand on Stanley Street now conducted by Kenneth A. Lingelbach, where he ran a jewelry store and watch repairing business for a period of 55 years, retiring in October, 1946. He held the distinction of having been a member of the business community for a longer term than that of any other person in the history of the village.

Prominent In Civic Affairs

During his lifetime, Mr. Fair took an active and prominent part in furthering the different civic enterprises, as they were brought forward, for the improvement of the village. IN this connection, his good judgment and considered opinion were always sought after. He was connecter with practically every organization and movement which functioned here during the period of his lifetime. These included the Ayr Masonic Lodge, Dolman Lodge, I.O.O.F., Ayr, Horticultural Society, Ayr Bowling Club, Ayr Curling Club, the former Ayr Horse Show, the Ayr Rural Telephone Co., Ayr School Board, the Ayr Park committee, Centennial of 1924, activities of the different committees functioning during the two world wars, Ayr War Memorial Committee which planned the erection of the imposing Cenotaph, corner of Stanley and Northumberland Streets, Ayr Hockey Club, Ayr Cemetery Board, Ayr Council Ayr Library Board and other Organizations. It might be mentioned in particular that he was secretary of the Ayr rural Telephone Company during its entire existence with the exception of one year. This company was just recently taken over by the Bell Telephone Company.

The Carnegie Library

His services as a member of the library beard were also outstanding. With the exception of the year 1906, when he was a member of the Ayr Municipal Council, he was a valued member of the Ayr Library Board from 1901 to 1942, being appointed secretary-treasurer in 1903. As secretary-treasurer of the board, he made application on October 18, 1909, for the Carnegie grant to provide for the erection of a new library in Ayr. This grant was received on December 24, 1909, and the present fine structure was subsequently built. As a matter of fact, Mr. Fair could be counted upon to take a leading part in every effort which was made towards bettering the living cultural conditions in his native village. Of a kindly and considerate disposition, he was always willing to lend a helping hand, and his friends throughout the district were legion.

Noted For Integrity

During the lengthy period in which he conducted a jewelry business here, Mr. Fair enjoyed a high reputation for his integrity and dependability. Surviving are his wife, the former Jamesena McRuer; a daughter, Miss Jane, and a brother, John. The funeral, which was private, took place from his late residence this (Wednesday) afternoon to the Ayr Cemetery.

12340 Tombstone Reads 1858 Andrew Fairbairn
 
12341 MRS. J. A. R. DlCKSON. I find great difficulty in speaking of one so close to me, and so unspeakably dear to my heart; and yet I have been told by my kindest and most judicious friends, in the congregation and out of it, that the volume would be incomplete without a notice of her who, for twenty-three years, was as much as myself to the congregation, and perhaps more than myself, for she lived in me and wrought through me in the most effective way by the love and influence of her life.

She was blessed by having profoundly pious parents; a father and mother who were highly intelligent Christians, who knew the saving truth of the gospel and rejoiced in it, and who understood the truth for the daily life and obeyed it. Theirs was a rich experience of the spiritual realities. They knew whom they had believed and also what they believed. To them the darkness was past and the true light shone, and gave them assurance and comfort and strength. Never have I seen finer exponents of the truth of the saving grace of God; they lived in the power of it, and left this glorious heritage to their children. They were people of character in the highest and best sense. The keynote of their earthly sojourn was: " For me to live is Christ," and Christ lived in them. The thought of their pure, and loving, and consecrated lives is a blessed and inspiring memory. They were Christians of a high order, thoroughly unworldly, thinking more of what Christ thought of them than of what men thought of them; entirely indifferent to the judgment of the world, and shaping their course by the light that shines in a dark place. Bred up in such an atmosphere as this, the best things might very properly be expected, and they were not looked for in vain. The daughter was like the parents, she breathed their spirit and imitated their example. She was an entirely consecrated soul and all through her life, from the day the Lord gave her to me, she was devoted to the Lord, and all these years she was an angel of God to her husband and her children. Her days were passed in sweet communion and fellowship with the Lord. The first thing she did in the morning was to read her Scripture portion, as set down in the International Bible Reading Association s slips, and the last thing at night was to seek God in prayer, laying all her loved ones on His bosom; she lived in the spirit of prayer. Morning by morning she applied the spiritual eye salve that she might see clearly, and regaled herself by the heavenly manna that she might be strong to serve, and went forth with God. She endured as seeing Him who is invisible amid the shadowy spectres of a passing scene. Her life was lived as in the presence of God.

No one, I believe, ever heard her utter an unadvised word. She kept her heart with all diligence, lest she should in any way offend. Her family was her first concern, and that afforded great scope for her love, her wisdom, her grace, her activity. She was never idle; our large family kept her busy; and having all her life, till the last year, good health, it was a joy to her to be fully employed, either for her own or for others. She was tireless in her activity, and in everything she did there was a sweetness like the perfume of roses, and her pleasant face was a true heart's ease, bringing a gracious contentment and rest to the whole of us.

Her judgment was always clear and wise, because it was thoroughly scriptural. Every thing she did was based upon and built up on the Word. Her influence was felt by everyone as an active force. She was our idol the one we all seemed to live by and for; whom it was our joy to please. She was the sun of our home, around whom we all moved the centre where we all found our point of rest. And when she was taken from us darkness and desolation came in our unspeakable loss. It was to us as Egyptian darkness a darkness that could be felt; a darkness in which God alone could give light, and a sorrow in which God alone could soothe the heart. She being dead yet speaketh. Her life is a blessed memory. With her God's judg ment ruled in everything. I cannot tell how strongly she felt against the traffic in strong drink, which has blighted so many lives, and ruined so many homes. Her whole soul was in the great missionary enterprise of the Church of Christ, and it was with her a constant study. She believed firmly in the doctrine of the second coming of Christ, and found in it a source of comfort and strength. The Bible was with her " The Book " which gave her light, and law, and life; which controlled her judgment and ruled her heart, and commanded her conscience. Beyond that she read widely, but all that she read had to be of a distinct character, that is, it had to be spiritual, and the more intensely so the better. Andrew A. Bonar, Samuel Rutherford, Frances Ridley Havergal, Dr. Matheson, of Edinburgh, Andrew Murray, R. M. McCheyne, Gypsy Smith, Henry Moorehouse, and men and women of that temper, were her companions and teachers. Anyone with a spiritual experi ence, with a heavenly vision, or a deeper insight into the Scripture was welcomed at once. Religious biography was with her a real fellow ship with the choicest minds and hearts of God's saints, and Christian thinkers and Chris tian workers all brought to her their distinctive gifts of encouraging words, and uplifting thoughts, and noble examples, which enriched her mind and enlarged her life. Her outlook was wide as the history of the Church, and her love as large as the household of faith. She was generous and unselfish to a degree. She thought of her self last; the law of kindness was in her heart in constant operation. What a rich gift of God she was to me and mine; and what a blessing to have possessed so long! I thank God for her love, her life, her labor through all these years. She moved among us like a beam of heavenly light a perpetual benediction; an inspirer of joy and gladness, her pure, sweet devout soul, unchanging and unchanged year after year.

Her love toward her parents, like her love to us, was a devoted and sacred affection, full of exquisite tenderness. Her faith in God never faltered, and her obedience was sincere and un reserved. She was a true helpmeet. Her thought regarding the members of the congre gation never ceased; and often she would remind me of duties to be performed. She was a tower of strength to her husband and a judicious counsellor; one on whom he rested with con fidence and in whom he trusted implicitly. No circumstance could arise in which she would not act with marked wisdom. In the religious culture of the children she was most careful and diligent, impressing upon them the thoughts of God, and not trusting in anything else, however beautiful it might seem, or however eloquently expressed. The simple Word of the Living God always took the first place, and was suffi cient and final. She rested upon the Word of the King. Anything that did not accord with that was rejected at once. This unswerving faith in what God had spoken was the stay of her soul, the light of her life, the blessedness of her being. Like the prophet Elijah, she could say, " God, before whom I stand." And like Paul, " Whose I am, and whom I serve." This was her constant attitude and her reigning feeling; and withal there was such a sweet and charming meekness in her spirit. She was one of the separated unto God; one who was entirely surrendered.

After her departure, one of the things that surprised me most, was the universal acknowledgment of her uplifting influence. Letters of sympathy from all quarters made mention of it I will only quote a few brief statements in con firmation of this. One writes: " To me she was the most perfect character I ever met, and she was always an inspiration to try and be better. What a legacy she has left her dear children for she certainly bore all the fruits of the Spirit." Another writer, as representing many, says: " Her womanly Christian life in her home, her bright, as well as faithful, way of doing her many duties as a house-mother and pastor's wife, and the sweet dignity of all her church work won our affectionate admiration." Another expresses himself in this way: "It has been my privilege to know her ever since she came to Galt, and I have always had a great respect for her. I cannot think of any other who was so devoted to her family, and who endeared herself to so many by her kind and loving deeds and bright and winsome smile. Hers was one of those wholesome lives that one could not know without being the better for it." Another says: "What a beautiful life Mrs. Dickson s was so full of love and gentleness and sympathy, and so unselfish." Another.: " The memory of her beautiful life and sweet Christian character will be a benediction not only to you all in the home, but to many homes wherever she was known." Another speaks of "that life that was so beautiful and blessed." I append two resolutions to close this notice:

"The following resolution was passed at the meeting of our Guelph Presbyterial W. F. M. S., which took place at Berlin on the 18th and 19th February, 1903: Moved by Mrs. D. McRae, seconded by Mrs. Watt, That the members of the Women's Foreign Missionary Society of the Presbytery of Guelph, desire to express their loving sympathy with the family of the late Mrs. Dickson, of Galt, a beloved President of her auxiliary, and at one time President of this Presbyterial Society. We remember her acceptable service, the sunshine of her face, her genius as presiding officer, the Christ-like spirit she showed, and her gift of bringing things new and old out of God's Word. Amid our own sense of loss we would lovingly commend those who mourn in her own home to the God of comfort, asking that He give strength and consolation and be with them all the days until they shall be re-united and be forever with Him.

"Yours sincerely, " ELIZA J. KERR.

"Cor. Sec. IV. F. M. S"

"To the Rev. Dr. J. A. R. Dickson and family:

" HIGHLY ESTEEMED FRIENDS. The members of the Ministerial Association of Galt and vicinity have learned with profound sorrow of the unspeakable loss you have sustained in the death of your beloved wife and mother.

" The members of the Association, in common with a very large circle of friends, feel that in the removal from earth of dear Mrs. Dickson they have lost the presence and companionship of a woman of exalted Christian character; the companionship of one whose face shone with sweet and frequent communion with her Saviour; one in whose quiet, gentle, Christian life was reflected the simplicity that is in Christ.

"She has gone from the scenes of earth to her rich reward above, leaving behind her a noble work well done; well done as the prudent ad viser and constant helper of her husband a minister of the gospel; well done as a mother, tender and loving, ever teaching her children by precept and pure example to walk in the way of holiness; well done in the Church, whose prosperity was the rejoicing of her heart; and well done could truthfully be inscribed upon whatever she did. Those of us who remain be hind cannot but feel that while earth is poorer because of her absence, heaven is richer because of her presence.

"We are well aware that human sympathy has but little power to assuage a grief that will nigh overwhelm the soul, yet it is all we have to give, and it is most heartily and tenderly extended to you all. We commend you to the deeper, higher, broader sympathy of Him who * will not break the bruised reed nor quench the smoking flax, believing that in all your afflictions He is afflicted.

"As one whom his mother comforteth, so may you all be comforted by Him who said to his near disciples and to all his true followers: I will not leave you comfortless.

"On behalf of the Ministerial Association: "ADAM G. KING, D.D. "W. E. PESCOTT, B.A. " Galt, Ontario, October 8th, 1902."

Resolutions in the same tenor came from the various societies in the congregation, and from many in the town, all carrying everything that man could give of kindly comfort and Christian consolation, all of which were much prized by our family. Dr. Francis R. Beattie, of Louis ville, Kentucky, who had come to take charge of a town pulpit for a few Sabbaths, arrived shortly after the death of Mrs. Dickson, and in a note of brotherly sympathy observes: " The whole community is deeply moved by the event." The Rev. John H. McVicar, B.A., who was among the ministers present at the funeral, says: " The deep emotion, so evident through out the gathering at the funeral service in the church, showed how much Mrs. Dickson was beloved, and how greatly she will be missed. Though I saw her so seldom I felt and feel as if a warm-hearted friend had been removed." The Rev. J. B. Mullen, at the request of the family, conducted the funeral service with a thorough appreciation of the circumstances and of the character of Mrs. Dickson.

I thank God that she did not live in vain. Her life force, since her going home, seems to have gathered itself together into a compact unit, and exerts itself with redoubled might upon the hearts of her friends, rather than to have spent itself. She lives again to appro priate George Eliot s words: " In minds made better by her presence, in pulses stirred to generosity, in deeds of daring rectitude, in scorn for miserable aims that end in self." And so, according to the Word that utters unchalleng- able truth, " Their works do follow them." How profoundly true! The other day I was having a heart-to-heart talk with a loving father, and he said, " My daughter s last words to me when she died were: Pa, I ll be looking out for you! And day after day, as I sit and think, these words will always be coming back to me, as though I heard her speaking: Pa I ll be looking out for you! Pa, I ll be looking out for you! " So the sweetness, the loveliness, the Christian spirit, the self-abnegation, the devotion to God, and the unquestioning faith in His blessed word, are all forged into a spiritual energy which is here characterized by the words: "Their works do follow them." And having ventured to say so much, how deeply do I realize with George Eliot that " Life is not rounded in an epigram, and saying aught we leave a world unsaid!

Sad Death

It has been the lot of the Reporter during the years in which it has paid its weekly visits to its readers to record many painful bereavements; but It never fell to the lot of the writer to record one more distressing than that which fell upon the household of our respected old friend Mr. Hugh Fairgrieve, farmer, North Dumfries, last Friday. For a few days previous his son William R. had not been well, complaining very much of the cold, and had remained in the house sitting by the stove. He had taken some medicine but declined to consult a doctor, saying that he would be all right in a day or two. Shortly after noon on Friday he left the house and was noticed going toward the driving shed. Not returning, his aged mother became somewhat uneasy, but thought he had gone over to his brother, some distance away; but as time passed she sent out her daughter to see if she could see him. On entering the driving shed the sister was horrified at discovering the body of her brother hanging, by the neck from one of the rafters. An alarm was instantly given, but the young man was quite dead when taken down. It is needless to say that the family so painfully bereaved bear with them the sympathy of the entire neighborhood. No possible reason can be assigned for the act, Mr. Fairgrieve being a steady and hard working young man, and one that carried with him the respect of all who knew him. He was a member of the C. P. Church choir in this town, and was present at the usual services in this church on the Sunday previous. He was in the 31st year or his age, and unmarried.

12351 Passing Of Prominent Mason - Sudden Demise of Alexander Falconer - The community was startled on Sunday evening when it became known that Mr. Alexander Falconer had passed away at the Hamilton Hospital after undergoing two operations for goiter within a few days of each other, the last on Saturday, death following at 5: 45 p.m. on Sunday. Mr. Falconer had gone down the early part of the week and had put himself in the hands of an expert, who performed the first operation on Wednesday. Both were successful but the patient was unable to rally from the severe shock to his system. Deceased was native of Pickering, where he was in business for some time as a harness maker. Later he went to Toronto, and from there came to Ayr about 18 years ago, purchasing the harness business of Mr. James McGhee, now of Toronto. This he ran successfully until about a year ago when he sold out to the present owner, Mr. Alex. Runstetler. Mr. Falconer was a shrewd business man, a god mechanic and very popular with his patrons, all of whom and the public generally will sincerely regret his early demise, just when he was prepared to take life easy. He was a prominent Mason, being a past master when he came here; he was subsequently elected master of the local lodge for a term and fulfilled his duties most creditably. For some years he was a member of the Public Library Board and also of Knox United Church. A son, Mr. Clarence Falconer of Toronto, survives, Mrs. Falconer having passed away shortly after the family came to Ayr. The funeral, which took place yesterday (Wednesday) from the residence of Mr. Chisholm Scott, Stanley Street, to the Ayr Cemetery, was under Masonic auspices, local members of the Order acting as pallbearers, as follows: Jno. Q. Reid, J.W. Henderson, Jas. G. Fair, D. Reid, W.A. Ramsay, A.R. Robertson.

12354 Murder, Says Jury in Gerbig Probe
Kitchener Man Found Guilty at Inquest on Death of His Wife
Special to the Toronto world - Kitchener, Ont., Jan. 4


That Charles Gerbig murdered his wife, who was found dead with her throat cut in the cellarway of her home at 18 Simeon Street here on December 1, was the verdict rendered by the coroner's jury empaneled in the case at the conclusion of the inquest here this afternoon. Coroner J.F. Honsberger presided. Many witnesses were heard. D.S. Bowlby conducted the hearing for the crown. The interests of the prisoner were looked after by E.W. Clement.

Prominent in, the evidence heard by the jury was the testimony of Miss Elsele, superintendent of the Kitchener-Waterloo Hospital, and Miss Carter, a nurse at the institution. Both nurses stated that Gerbig was received at the hospital as a nervous patient on November 24, and that he was discharged on Nov. 28. They declared that he was quite bright on the morning he left the institution. They also declared that his wife visited him while he was in the hospital, and that the two seemed to be on friendly terms.

W.H. Knechtel, who discovered the tragedy, stated that when he found Gerbig in bed with his throat cut, the prisoner said to him: "Keep it quiet. Don't tell anybody. I'll be all right in a few days." He stated that Gerbig declared he knew nothing of the whereabouts of his wife.

P.C. Steiner, the officer who was first summoned, told the jury that Gerbig denied having killed his wife, but admitted cutting his own throat, and explained that he had done so because he was despondent over poor health.

The razor with which the attempted suicide was committed, according to Gerbig's own admission, and which contained a lock of woman's hair upon the blade, was identified by W.H. Knechtel and P.C. Steiner.

From evidence submitted by neighbors the jury came to the decision that Mrs. Gerbig was murdered some time on Thursday, Nov. 29, after 10 am. Other evidence was given which showed that the domestic relations of Mr. and Mrs. Gerbig were not the most harmonious., because Mrs. Gerbig had remarked that her husband boasted of the attentions he paid to other women.

Following the inquest the accused was taken to the county jail, where he will be held pending his arraignment in the police court, which, it is expected will take place tomorrow or Monday.

12373 Branchton United Church

Begun: 1859 Closed: 1970

On the Sheffield Circuit of the Wesleyan Methodists to begin with, the congregation was on the St. George Circuit when a decision was made to build a church in 1859. Built with financial assistance from the Branchton and area Presbyterians, the stone church was dedicated in December 1859; the minister at the dedication service was Rev. William Lund. Rev. Thomas Fawcett, from St. George, was the congregation's first minister. As a condition of their financial support, the Presbyterians held services in the church on alternate Sundays until c.1875 when they began to meet in the Branchton Hall. The church was associated with St. George at this time, in the Brantford District of the London Conference of the Methodist Church.

The church remained Methodist until 1910. In July 1911, the Presbyterians bought the building for $350. Rev. C.D. Farquharson was minister to the newly-organized Presbyterian congregation. Improvements were made to the church building over the next few years: the church was redecorated, new seats were purchased, gas lighting was installed (in 1914), and a porch was built on the front of the church, in 1915.

The Waterloo Region Record 14 Jan 2010

___________________________________

An Elmira area resident has been confirmed as one of the casualties of the devastating Haitian earthquake. Yvonne Martin, who worked for more than 30 years as a nurse at Elmira Medical Clinic, was killed in what is being described as the largest earthquake ever recorded in Haiti. The earthquake took place on Tuesday.

Martin was there as part of a six-member medical missionary team coordinated by Emmanuel Missionary Church of Canada. Martin was killed in the collapse of a guesthouse shortly after arriving in Port-au-Prince Tuesday as part of a team of seven Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada nurses, the church said in a released statement.? The group of nurse volunteers, all from southern Ontario, went to Haiti to provide medical clinics, said Global Initiatives director Lou Geense.?"It's pretty hard to grab a hold of," said Geense. "Not only for our loss but the loss of hundreds and thousands of Haitian people and the people that we work with there."?All six surviving members of the group, all from southern Ontario, are safe, said Geense.

Dr. Michael Norris said that staff at the medical clinic is still coping with the news, which they received earlier today (Wednesday). "She was just a dedicated nurse," said Norris. "As a person, she wholeheartedly loved and enjoyed people." Norris said that Martin was often a fount of information on patients who attended the clinic, helping doctors get a better sense of how to care for their patients.

Yvonne Gingrich, a nurse at the clinic who worked with Martin for 26 years, said she is still shocked at the news. "We're just trying to get through the day," said Gingrich. While Martin had retired as a nurse a few years previously, she came back this year to help with the H1N1 influenza clinics held at the centre. "She was a very compassionate, caring person," said Gingrich. Martin's latest trip to Haiti as part of a medical mission team was not the first time she served there. Ellen Krahn, former coordinator of volunteer teams at World Partners, the mission branch of the Emmanuel Missionary Church of Canada, said that Martin has gone to Haiti at least three times as part of a mission team. "She was just a really great lady," said Krahn. "She was very, very kind and compassionate, and had a love for the Haitian people." Krahn said that Martin had opportunities to go on other medical mission trips to other countries, but she would decline. "She wanted to go to Haiti; that's where her heart was."

Harold Albrecht, Member of Parliament for Kitchener-Conestoga, issued a statement Wednesday afternoon, regarding Martin's death. "My thoughts and prayers are with the Martin family, and with all of those who have suffered as a result of this tragedy," said Albrecht. "Yvonne was in Haiti to help set up mobile clinics. This need still exists. Our government has announced $5 million in immediate humanitarian assistance while the situation is assessed, more will be needed." Albrecht encouraged local residents to contribute to relief efforts in Haiti.


Martin attended Waterloo Mennonite Brethren church in Waterloo, but representatives from the church declined to comment. The church planned on opening its doors for members who would "like to pray or gather in love for Yvonne or Haiti," according to information on the church's website. The church will be open until 9 p.m. this evening.


DRAYTON CONNECTION

Former pastor Willard Metzger was also in Haiti in time for Tuesday's earthquake. Metzger works for World Vision, and was there as part of a six-member team. Lois Metzger said that she received an email from her husband at 5: 36 p.m. Tuesday, telling her that the hotel was ruined. Her son, Christopher, received a text message later that evening, indicating that the hotel was looking to provide bread and water for its patrons, but that they would be spending the night on the street. "I feel that I'm more blessed than some people that haven't heard anything," said Metzger. "I'm hoping soon to get a call from him.

Our world needs more Yvonne Martins


Yvonne Martin died trying to make Haiti, and the world, a better place. It is difficult to write a more profound epitaph. And it is hard to imagine a nobler cause for which someone could lay down her life.

No one had forced this Elmira woman to leave the safety of Canada for a medical mission in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. She was under no binding obligation to trade the comfort of her southern Ontario home for the modest Port-au-Prince guest house that collapsed on top of her during the massive earthquake that ravaged the city on Tuesday.

And most certainly, she did not have to be where she was when disaster struck, no more than 90 minutes after she had arrived in Haiti.
Martin was 67 years old. She had fully earned her retirement after 36 years of tending the sick and keeping people well in the Elmira Medical Clinic. She had a husband, three sons and 10 grandchildren who loved her dearly. She had cherished friends who valued all she had done for her community. She could have put her feet up, collected her well-earned pension, savoured the sweet, golden years of retirement and, like most of the rest of us, watched the suffering of the third world citizens on television while, at best and from a secure distance, making the occasional charitable donation. But she could and did not.

Some people try to make the world better by becoming a peacekeeper and picking up a gun. Martin tried to make this world better by joining a medical mission and picking up a stethoscope. She was a soldier in a different kind of army.

Moved by her strong Christian faith, a faith that called her to help those with the least in life, Martin joined missions to Haiti organized by the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada. On three previous occasions, she had travelled to Haiti. By all accounts, she had come to love the people of that country. By all accounts, while she was moved by their daily trials and suffering, she was as deeply impressed by their indomitable spirit and intense appreciation of life. And by all accounts, she had made a difference, providing care, both emotional and physical, in one of the places where it was most urgently needed. How sad and how ironic that this trained and experienced provider of health care should die in a natural disaster that made her presence in Haiti more necessary than ever before.

In saying so much about one woman who was one of the first Canadians to die in the Haitian earthquake, this newspaper does not mean to ignore or detract attention from all those who died in this catastrophe. We know that the number of dead is truly staggering and could exceed 50,000. Meanwhile, in acknowledging the sadness our local community will feel at Martin's passing, we do not mean to overlook or minimize the shock being experienced by countless Canadians who moved here from Haiti or descend from Haitian immigrants. Many of those will be grieving today for family and friends who died this week; countless others will be gripped by agonizing fears and doubts about loved ones whose fate, amid such destruction and chaos, remains unknown.

But, to a degree and through no conscious wish of her own, Yvonne Martin is for Waterloo Region and much of Canada, the face of the Haitian disaster.

We mourn her death. Yet we are proud of her life. She represents values in this region and this country that are most endearing and, in all likelihood, should be most enduring. The ability to give to strangers. The willingness to risk threats known and unknown. The courage to sacrifice oneself, if necessary, for the greater good of humanity.

These are the touchstones of Martin's life. These are what motivate the six other members of her medical mission, five of whom also come from Elmira. How appropriate it would be if Martin's example inspires other Canadians to help the people of Haiti through the donations of money, food or other relief materials. In truth, that would be the greatest memorial, the most imposing monument for a woman who died in the service of others and her God.

12381 FARRELL, ARTHUR, hockey player and author; b. 8 Feb. 1877 in Montreal, son of William Farrell and Mary Meagher; d. 7 Feb. 1909 in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Que.

Arthur Farrell was the fourth in a family of eight. Since his father was a merchant and alderman in Montreal, he grew up in comfortable circumstances. From 1895 to 1897 he studied at the Collège Sainte-Marie, where he began his hockey career in 1896 and met students who would later be his teammates on the Montreal Shamrocks. There were frequent intramural hockey games at the college and games against other establishments, notably the Pensionnat du Mont-Saint-Louis. Sainte-Marie's four forwards \endash Farrell, Harry Trihey, Fred Scanlan, and Jack Brennan \endash would become the core of the Shamrocks' offence.

The Shamrocks played in the Amateur Hockey Association of Canada, having succeeded the Montreal Crystals in 1895. Canada's leading hockey league at the time, the AHAC also included the Ottawa Silver Seven, the Quebec Bulldogs, the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association, and the Montreal Victorias. The four collegians joined the Shamrocks in 1897. Hockey was then a seven-player game, and the others on the team were Frank Tansey and Louis Belcourt, both from Mont-Saint-Louis, and Ernest Pagnuelo, the goaltender. The next season Belcourt was replaced by Frank Wall and Pagnuelo by Jim McKenna, who also came from Mont-Saint-Louis. This group remained intact until 1901.

All the teams in the AHAC were anglophone until 1905, when francophone ones entered the league, and only the Shamrocks used French-speaking players. The club was made up mainly of Irish Catholics who had studied in bilingual classical colleges. Thus it was with the Irish that French Canadians learned to play hockey, and the Shamrocks' seven players were bilingual.

The Shamrocks introduced a major innovation into hockey: the passing game. Team captain Harry Trihey took the lead as rover linking the forwards and the defencemen. With forward passing of the puck not allowed, the favourite tactic was to have one of the forwards advance, with the other three following. As in rugby, the lead would pass back to one of the others when his way was blocked. The Shamrocks speeded up the game by using all four forwards together and passing the puck backwards and sideways to force the opposing defencemen to move.

Having finished the 1899 season in first place, the Shamrocks took the Stanley Cup [see Frederick Arthur Stanley] away from the defending champions, the Montreal Victorias. They then had to hold it against challengers. On 14 March 1899 they defeated Queen's College in Kingston, Ont., by a 6\endash 2 score to retain the precious cup. The Shamrocks remained the champions the next year and defended the cup twice, winning two games against the Winnipeg Victorias in February 1900 and two against the Halifax Crescents in March. In the last Farrell scored four goals, one fewer than his all-time high, which he would achieve against Quebec on 2 March 1901.

The 1901 season was more difficult for the Shamrocks. The Winnipeg Victorias came back to Montreal in January and this time took the Stanley Cup away from them in two games. After the season, all the Shamrocks' players quit the team and replacements were found in the intermediate ranks.

Farrell did not leave the sport altogether. In 1899 he had written what appears to have been the first book on hockey, containing a section on the history of the game and another on how to play. A second work, in two volumes, was published in 1901\endash 4 for an American readership in a well-known series put out by Albert Goodwill Spalding. Another book by Farrell in that series came out in 1907 and was reissued in 1910. It outlines the origins of hockey and the rules in Canada and the United States and includes comments by Canadian hockey stars on the art of playing various positions. Farrell also worked in his father's store. However in 1906 he was confined to the sanatorium in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts. He had fallen ill with tuberculosis, of which he died in 1909.

Arthur Farrell's contribution to hockey was recognized in 1965 when he was admitted to the Hockey Hall of Fame along with his teammate Fred Scanlan. Harry Trihey had already been elected to it in 1950, but the other Shamrocks still have not been. Both as a player and as a writer, Farrell stimulated the development of hockey in its early days.

12395 DR. R.W. FAULDS

The numerous patients and friends of Dr. R.W. Faulds will be grieved to learn that he too has fallen victim to influenza and its sequel pneumonia. Since the epidemic began Dr. Faulds had been busy night and day responding to the professional calls that were made on him. He worked most heroically for his patients, allowing himself a great deal less rest and care than he prescribed for them. During the beginning of last week he felt symptoms of the disease coming on and on Wednesday took to bed. The development proceeded rapidly and in spite of the best of medical aid that could be secured his condition was so bad last Saturday that very little hope of recovery was entertained. Dr. Howitt, of Guelph was called in but could hold out little encouragement. On Sunday the report was circulated that the end might be expected almost any time, but the patient lingered on until about on o'clock Monday noon, when the spark of life fled.

Deceased came to Elmira about nine years ago as successor to the late Dr. J. H. Ratz. He was known as an excellent and successful practitioner, and will be greatly missed by his numerous and grateful patients. For a number of years he held the position of local Medical Health Officer wherein he showed the qualities of discretion and firmness necessary in this important office. He was known as a man who had the courage of his convictions, and who was honourable and consistent in his dealings. In him Elmira loses a citizen who will be difficult to replace.

He leaves behind a widow and two young children. His aged parents live in London, Ont., whence his mother, accompanied by her daughter Mrs. Elson, of St. Thomas, came on Sunday in time to see him alive. His father, who was on a hunting trip with his other son, who lives at Edmonton, Alta., could not be located in time to respond to the summons to his bedside. The deceased will be greatly missed in the family circle where his genial and unselfish disposition endeared him to all.

Dr. Faulds was a graduate in Medicine of the University of Toronto, and prior to coming to Elmira was house surgeon at the Erie County Hospital, Buffalo. He was born at Harrietsville, Ont., thirty-six years ago, the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Faulds. He was a member of the Masonic and Oddfellows' fraternities. He is survived by his parents, one brother, Oliver Faulds, of Edmonton; one sister, Mrs. J.M. Elson, of St. Catharines; his wife and two little daughters.

At the time Dr. Faulds was taken ill he was attending in the neighborhood of one hundred cases of influenza and was physically worn out from the strain.

The funeral was held on Wednesday afternoon at four o'clock, from his late residence on Mill St., to Elmira Union Cemetery. Rev. Webster, pastor of the Methodist Church, conducted the services.

12417 St. Mary of the Visitation Roman Catholic Church

Early missionaries came to the area c.1827 beginning with Father James W. Campion who was followed by Father Cassidy and Father John Cullen. Next came the St. Agatha missionaries, Fathers John Louis Wiriath (1834-1837), Peter Schneider (1837-1844), Simon Sanderl (1844-1846), and then the Jesuits. About this time a Mr. Barrett of Puslinch approached Rev. John Holzer, the Jesuit Superior, about building a church in Hespeler. Rev. Holzer agreed to the request.
The cornerstone for a stone church was laid on September 6, 1857. Consecration services were held later that autumn by the Rt. Rev. John Farrell, Bishop of Hamilton. A large addition was built c.1900 which changed the rectangular church into the shape of a cross. Sadly, the church was destroyed by fire on March 18, 1916, at which time the congregation purchased the former Presbyterian Church nearby on Cooper St. This building had become Alexandra Hall in 1910 when the Presbyterian congregation had moved into their new church on Queen Street East. The new St. Mary of the Visitation Roman Catholic Church was dedicated on June 25, 1917. Another fire on January 19, 1918 destroyed the altar and caused considerable smoke damage to the interior of the church. The damage was repaired in good time. Renovations to add space were made in 1957 and 1966.

Father George Laufhuber began the Hespeler Register in 1857. Some early records could be at St. Agatha, or at the Church of Our Lady in Guelph, as the parish at one time was in charge of the Jesuits from Guelph. Records from 1863-1868 could be in Paris as the Parish at that time was attached to Paris. In 1901 the church was reported to be attached to Galt. Father Joseph F. Crofton became the first resident priest on March 25, 1906. The first burial in the church cemetery was that of Nicolaus Fedy in late 1856. The first Baptism is said to have been in the spring of 1858. Baptisms and Marriages for the Niagara District 1830-1832 (Norfolk 1992a) and 1827 Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials at Dundas, and Guelph 1827-1830 (Norfolk 1992b) have been transcribed and are available at the Kitchener Public Library. *No access is permitted to the church records.1

12422 Wed. Oct. 9 I and Herb went to market - looked like rain mornings - I forgot my rain coat - slow market - I started delivering early - when I called at Joe Fehrnbach's for to take an order for this afternoon, I was told by the elderly lady that stays there, that the oldest daughter of Joe Fehrnbach's "Nora" died this morning at 5 oclock. This was a shocking surprise to me, for I had not heard that she was sick, but had often wondered that I did not see her when I came with vegetables, only her younger sister "May" and the lady that is staying there used to come to the door.

12425 Joseph E. Fehrenbach, a native of Kitchener, influenced the growth and development of many citizens in various fields of endeavour. A devout Roman Catholic, he practiced ecumenism, believing that "we are all God's children."

Active in several fields of community endeavour, he encouraged others to become involved in scouting, career counselling, community programmes, and many other activities.

In 1941, during a scout leaders training course, Fehrenbach hiked through a wooded area on the Eramosa River, near Everton. He recognized its possibilities as an excellent camping area and through his influence it eventually became Everton Scout Forest. Thousands of boys and leaders later benefited, thanks to his foresight and influence.

Associated with the K-W Record for many years, his interest in the development of youth in business ethics as newspaper carriers is reflected in the large number of youths under his direction who eventually became successful in their chosen fields of endeavour. He deserves a place in our memory for what he did for others.

12433 Suicide of Charles Feick

It would seem as if the loss of the reins on the old Preston and Berlin stage was too much for poor Charlie Feick. It is but a short time since he left the road yet now he is dead, and died by his own hand. Last week he took Paris green, and though lingering for a day or two, died. Many will recollect stormy trips with poor Charlie, and the unswerving good temper, with which he overcome all obstacles and encountered exposure. In those days Charlie's stage was "bound to go through" and it did go through, though delay would have been pardonable. But the poor fellow knew how to drive the stage, take care of his horses, the mails and his passengers, and discharged his duty faithfully and well.

Fanny Feick was born in the township of Normanby in 1875, being only in the prime of life when called home at the early age of 34 years, 7 months, and 23 days.

Some time ago she had La Grippe, the cold settling in her lungs, and although everything possible was done to check the dreaded disease, all seemed without avail until at last she passed, peacefully away leaving a sorrowing husband and young son to mourn, also her father and mother, one brother, Mr. A. W Feick, of Berlin, and four sisters, Mrs. J. Gerbracht, Galt, Mrs. Dietrich, Ayton, Mrs. B. Bender, Gowanstown, and Mrs. G. Bender, Wallace, all whom have the heartfelt sympathy of the whole community. The funeral will take place Thursday afternoon, 31st inst.

12461 Benton Street Baptist Church

The congregation of the first German Baptist Church in Canada was organized in Bridgeport on September 10, 1851 by Rev. August Rauschenbusch. A church was built in Berlin at the corner of Benton and St. George Streets in 1852, with Rev. Henry Schneider as the first pastor. Pastors who followed Rev. Schneider were Revs. Ed. Austermuehl (1863-1864) and C. Bodenbender (1865-1871).
By 1883 the congregation had grown to 140 members and the new and larger church which was built on the same site was opened in December of that year. The pastor at the time was Rev. Jacob Fellman, who had begun his service as pastor on August 23, 1876. Sunday evening services in English were attempted in 1891 but were not continued because of poor attendance. However, an English-speaking Baptist congregation, to be known as King Street Baptist Church, was organized in Berlin on November 10, 1895; seven members of the new congregation were from the Benton Street church.
The name of the church was changed from German Baptist Church to Benton Street Baptist Church in March, 1918 when the congregation ceased holding services in the German language. On January 25, 1928 the church "withdrew from the Baptist Convention of Ontario and Quebec ... " (Clubine 1976). The church later "became affiliated with the Fellowship of Independent Baptist Churches" (Ibid.) .
A growing congregation necessitated improvement and additions to the church over the years. The Sunday School was built in 1901, and was enlarged in 1927 with the addition of a second storey. Fire destroyed the church on February 11, 1964, except for an addition which had been built in 1953. Sod was turned on September 5, 1965 marking the beginning of construction of a new church; the cornerstone was laid on April 3, 1966 and the new building was officially opened and dedicated on September 18, 1966. The congregation had met in Eastwood Collegiate in the interval.

12470 MR. JOHN FENNELL.

ONE OF BERLIN'S SUCCESSFUL AND PUBLIC SPIRITED CITIZENS.


On June 1st, 1863, a young hardware merchant arrived in Berlin from the neighboring town of Stratford. He came well equipped for his life's work. For he knew that success in business life is attained only by a strict adherence to sound principles, by industry and by unvarying attention. These were resolutions well taken and their fruit is seen today in the large wholesale and retail business of John Fennell & Son, for it is the gentleman at the head of this firm to whom reference is made. Mr. Fennell was born in Cobourg in 1837 and by a happy coincidence his natal day this year falls on the last day of the Old Boys' Re-union, Aug. 8th. He was educated at Victoria College Cobourg and chose a business career. His connection with Berlin had been a long and honorable one. When he came here Berlin had a population of about 2700 and Waterloo about 1700. The latter was however the better business place. Berlin however kept growing and a few years later was incorporated as a town. Naturally a man of Mr. Fennell's ability and energy has been called upon to fill positions of public trust. This he always did with credit to himself and general satisfaction to the public. For 24 years he was a member of the Public School Board and chairman for several years. During this period the Central School increased from 8 to 12 rooms and the four ward schools were completed.

Mr. Fennell took a keen interest in politics and recalls the fierce battle of 1878 when the National Policy shot its roots so deeply into Canadian soil that they have never since been eradicated. "He was President of the Liberal-Conservative Association of North Waterloo at that time. To quote his own -words, it was a "red hot battle fought with honest weapons by both sides. The tricks of today were not even thought of". The result was a triumph, for the Conservative party. Though never seeking public honors, Mr. Fennell was upon a largely signed requisition prevailed upon to contest the mayoralty in 1885. He had given excellent service in the Town Council for years and was a "progressive." Unfortunately for his candidature, a long line of English speaking mayors had occupied the chief magistrate's office, and in a three cornered contest he was defeated, the feeling being that a German should be honored. The following year the Berlin Board of Trade was incorporated. He became its first President and prepared the by-laws as they stand today. He was also one of the five applicants for a charter for the Berlin-Preston Street Railway now in successful operation. Brought up in the Anglican Communion, Mr. Fennell's activities have also extended to church affairs He has been church warden of St. John's church for many years and has been elected by this congregation as their representative to the Synod of the Diocese of Huron for some 35 years past. In this capacity he has assisted in the election of three Bishops, viz.: The late Bishops Helmuth and Baldwin and the present incumbent, Bishop Williams. Kindred organizations have, too, benefitted by his sympathy and aid. Mr. Fennell's business career is well known to all. After his coming to Berlin the hardware trade was largely transferred from Waterloo to Berlin. Associated with him is his son Jas. P., who has acted as buyer for many years and who assumes a large portion of the burden of the business. The firm import heavily from England, Germany, and the United States, although Canadian manufacturers are supplying more and more of the trade, especially in certain staple lines. When the Economical Mutual Fire Ins. Co. was organized in 1872, Mr. Fennell was one of the charter members. He has been on the Board of Directors ever since and for the last four years has been president. He is also a Justice of the Peace.

___________________

John Fennell, Hardware King Street - One of the most successful business men in the town of Berlin to-day is Mr. John Fennell, hardware merchant, whose establishment is located on King Street. The premises occupied are 25x100 feet in dimensions and three stories in height; also three warehouses in rear covering 28x100 feet and one story in height, for the storage of heavy iron, nails, woodenware, plaster of Paris, etc.; and another warehouse near the railroad station for the storage of oils; also a coal yard, located near the station. The business was established in 1863 by Mr. Fennell, and since that time the trade has been rapidly and constantly growing. In his extensive warehouse he carries a large stock of hardware, shelf-hardware, heavy irons, carriage hardware, cutlery, etc. He gives employment to eight competent assistants, but personally supervises his entire business. He also uses five teams, the trade extending through the town and extensive sections of the surrounding country. Mr. Fennell was born in Cobourg, Ontario on the 8th of August, 1837. After passing through the public schools of the district he went to Victoria College, and thereafter learned the hardware business. Mr. Fennell, on the formation of the Berlin Board of Trade, last May, was elected President, and in honouring Mr. Fennell the members honoured themselves and made a most wise choice, for he has been educated in the best of all schools for such a position as he occupies on the Board, namely, practical business, in which he has achieved such unqualified success. He has also held positions of honor and trust in the Council and School Board, and has been for a number of years President of the Liberal-Conservative Association of the North Riding of Waterloo. He is a gentleman of sterling worth.


Industries of Canada Historical and Commercial Sketches Hamilton and Environs 1886

___________________________

John Fennell founded a retail and wholesale hardware enterprise here in 1863, and leased quarters in the Victoria block from J. A. Mackie. Mr. Fennell was one of the first coal merchants in the town. He admitted his son James P. to a partnership and they were for many years lessees of premises in the Royal Bank block. Mr. Fennell, Sr., was the first President of the Board of Trade and for thirty years President of the Economical. In 1923, after his death, the assets and good will of their business were sold by James P. Fennell to C. N. Weber and his father, Karl Weber. The new owners bought the former Randall & Roos block at 66 S. Queen Street and incorporated the Weber Hardware Company Ltd. As retailers and wholesalers, the company specializes in mill supplies, builders' hardware, mechanics' tools, blacksmith and garage supplies, paints, electrical lines, and sporting goods. Hardware figures largely in living, farming, and manufacturing. It is a far cry from the articles of wood and plain materials used by our grandfathers to the present day. In 1863, Mr. Fennell imported most of his hardware. Afterward some lines were made in Canada. In the multiplicity of changes that have taken place in the last seventy-five years, science and technology have put everything on a technical plane, assuring not only improvement but uniformity of manufacture. The Weber Hardware Company has kept pace with that progress. The territory covered by their travellers has a radius of 150 miles, whilst by means of a large catalogue they serve customers from Vancouver to Halifax.3a

12471 C. N. Weber is a complex organization, but it started simply enough as hardware store founded by Samuel Date in 1855. He sold tools and supplies needed by carpenters, metal smiths and carriage makers in the community of Berlin, which later became Kitchener. Date sold the store to John Fennell, a prominent community leader who died in 1922. In 1923, C.N. Weber bought the store from Fennell's widow. Over time, the business shifted from retail sales to industrial supply. John Fennell

Frame houses of this age are relatively rare in local urban settings since brick houses were encouraged by the enactment of fire regulations restricting wooden construction. The three-bay home, which stands on a foundation of granite fieldstone, has a central hall and balanced fenestration. The entrance is highlighted by a classical pediment, tympanum and fluted half columns which frame the paneled front door. The plank construction of the house is evident in the attic. Fenner, a talented joiner, enlarged the building from one-and-a-half to two-stories in 1886. Evidence of the change may be seen in the diagonal cuts on each of the four vertical corner trim pieces where they were spliced to accommodate the second storey. Vertical boards, two inches by twenty one inches are nailed to the horizontal ones. Siding covers the planks on the exterior, while lath and plaster does the same on the interior.
The west, north and south facades of the McLaughlin house, was designated as a well preserved example of wooden construction.1a

__________________

The winter was-as it continues to be in Canada -the liveliest season of the year. The snow-fall was abund-ant, the sleighing steady and good. Farmers could not get out their crops till the Frost King had paved the roads. This rendered business in winter lively. It also brought its special amusements. On Christmas and New Year's, and sometimes both, Galt seldom failed to have its shooting matches for turkeys and geese. The sportsmen sometimes shot through between the stumps in rear of the little tavern on Water Street, but more frequently west of the Queen's Arms, the birds or the target being placed at the foot of Dickson's hill. It was not uncommon, then, to shoot at the turkeys and geese themselves. On some occasions the birds were entirely exposed to the marksman, sit a long range; at other times their bodies were placed be-hind a stump or log, or in such a way that only their necks and heads were exposed above the snow, and it required a skilful marksman with the rifle to hit them. These matches excited the liveliest interest.*

* Among the best rifle shots at these matches were, John Garrison , A Andrew Mercer, Absalom Shade, Thomas G. Chapman, James Fargus, Adam Hood, and James Kay

12499 One of the first settlers who came from Livingston County, N.Y. and took up land in an unbroken forest in Mill Creek section was Duncan Ferguson, who labored in cutting down trees and made way for the building of a cabin, and then returned home to his native state, New York, to his partner and their baby, and arranged to return to their new home in Canada. They traveled with an ox cart by way of Queenston, crossing the Niagara River by boat, and wound their way through the wilderness, as it were, to their new home on Mill Creek, and to the log cabin where all their children were born, except the eldest. Mrs. Ferguson died in the year 1839 and left an infant, who was taken care of by a loving neighbor, a friend of the mother. The child, Christie Ann, lived and grew up to womanhood, and in the year 1866 she became the partner of my life for well nigh half a century, until she received the call, Jan. 19, 1914, "Come Home." Having finished her labors she entered upon her reward. "Gone but not forgotten."

The Late Duncan Ferguson

Died in Galt on Saturday, Oct. 4, 1884, Duncan Ferguson, aged 80 years and 10 months.

Few indeed of the early settlers of these parts were more widely known or more highly respected than the aged pioneer who has just passed away. Mr. Ferguson was a native of the State of New York. He was of Highland Scotch extraction, and we believe was a land surveyor by profession. As early as 1817 a number of highlanders had emigrated from New York State and taken up their abode in the neighborhood of Galt and Branchton. And in the year 1831, just 53 years ago, Mr. Ferguson decided to try his fortunes in the Canadian forests, and accordingly emigrated thither with his family. He settled upon the farm near Galt, at present occupied by his youngest son Mr. Alex Ferguson, upon which he resided upon until five or six years ago when he removed to Galt.

The deceased was a man of far more than average intelligence, and was an extensive reader. In the early days of the township he took a very active part in public affairs. We learn from Hon. Mr. Young's history of the early settlement of Galt and Dumfries, that in 1882, when the famous Territorial Bill of the Hincks-Morin government, dividing Dumfries into 2 townships, came into effect. Mr. Ferguson was Reeve of the first municipal council for North Dumfries, elected after the division. The council was composed as follows: Reeve, Dr. Charles McGeorge & Deputy Reeve, Mr. Duncan Ferguson: councilors Messrs Alex Buchanan, Robert Cranston and David Shantz. Mr. Buchanan is the only survivor of the council of 32 years ago. In 1853 Mr. Buchanan was Reeve and Mr. Robert Cranston Deputy Reeve. In 1854 and 1856 Mr. Ferguson occupied the reeves chair with Mr. T. Chisholm as Deputy. Privileged with more than average education and intelligence Mr. Ferguson proved himself a very useful municipal officer.

The deceased was a man of sterling principals and deep piety. He took an active interest in the establishment of the U.P. Church, of which he was for many years was Ruling Elder, a position he held at the time of his death.

Possessed with a remarkably strong constitution he enjoyed the best of health until two or three years ago, when the infirmities incident to old age began to manifest themselves. Since that time he had given away gradually, both physically and mentally and passed away rather suddenly as above mentioned.

The deceased was married three times, his third partner surviving him. The surviving members of the family are; Archibald and Alexander, North Dunfries; Peter; Minnesota; Angus, Denver, Col. & Mrs. Macfarlane, Denver; and Mrs. Hugh Cant, Galt.

The funeral on Monday afternoon was very largely attended, testifying to the esteem in which the deceased was held.

Death of Mr. Duncan Ferguson

This well known old resident of Dumfries and Galt passed away on Saturday last, at the ripe age of 81 years and 10 months. For several years past, Mr. Ferguson has been an invalid, an affection of the eyes having rendered him nearly blind; and of late he has been confined to his house entirely. He was a native of New York State, and came to Dumfries n the year 1831, when he took up the homestead at present occupied by his son, Mr. Alex Ferguson. In the old days, the decreased took a prominent part in public affairs, and was Deputy Reeve of the first municipal Council of North Dumfries. He was a man of integrity and ability, and carried with him to the grave the esteem of many friends and acquaintances. Mr. Ferguson was thrice married his third partner surviving him. The surviving members of his family are - Archibald and Alexander, Dumfries; Peter, residing in Minnesota; Angus, residing in Denver; Daniel, residing in Galt; Mrs. McFarlane, Denver; and Mr. Hugh Cant, Galt.

12504 JOHN FERGUSON, M.D., Niagara Falls, M. P. for Welland County, was born in the county of Middlesex, Ontario in the year 1839. He is descended from an Irish family of Scotch extraction, whose estates lay in Galway and Ayrshire. In 1660, James Ferguson, a younger son of the family, became possessed of a large property in the county of Cavan, Ireland, in which place he settled. His son Thomas and grandson Richard entered the army, the latter taking part in the troubles of 1743, as an officer of the King's Black Horse ( now the 7th Dragoon Guards) under the Duke of Cumberland. His grandfather, Henry F., held a commission in the Cavan militia, and took an active part in the Irish rebellion of 1798. This gentleman came to Canada in 1824, and settled in London Township.

The father of our subject was John Ferguson, of Middlesex, who was a justice of the peace in that county. Dr. John Ferguson received his education at the London grammar school, and afterwards entered the medical department of Victoria College, Toronto, and was also a private student of the late Dr. Rolph. In 1864 he graduated M. D. From Victoria College, and then left for the city of New York and entered Bellevue hospital, under Austin Flint, M. D., and attended the hospital for wounded soldiers at Blackwell's Island. On his return to Canada he began practicing his profession, but after four year's practice he abandoned it and began contracting for public works. He built a portion of the New York and Oswego Midland Railway, and the Galt and Berlin Railway. He was also a member of a firm who built (from 1873 to 1877) six miles of the Welland Canal enlargement, and in company with Robert Mitchell constructed the larger portion of the Toronto Water Works. In company with H. C. Symmes he built and established the first wood pulp mill at Sherbrooke in the province of Quebec. Dr. F. has taken an active part in political contests as a Conservative, appearing in the fight in nearly every election since 1867. In that year he assisted , for seven months on the public platform, A. P. Macdonald, who was elected in West Middlesex ; John H. Munroe, who was elected in West Elgin ; also in the contests in Bothwell and North Middlesex.

In 1871 he took an active part in South Waterloo election in the interest of Abraham Erb, who was the candidate of the late Sanfield Macdonald ministry. During 1873 he went throug South Waterloo delivering a number of vigorous, powerful and brilliant, speeches in behalf of Mr. Phin and the Conservative cause, and he took a similar course through North Wentwrth, Waterloo and West Middlesex, Mr. McKechnie profiting by his effective addresses. In 1882 he appeared on his own behalf before the electors of Welland, and received the reward of his ability, his integrity and zeal, in being chosen for parliament. He has since sat in the House of Commons, and he was very speedily looked upon as one of the clear-headed and solid members of that body. He is vigorous, ready and practical, and his judgement upon public questions is certain to be careful and sound.

In 1887 he was re-elected for Welland by a largely increased majority. In 1879 and 1880 he travelled extensively through Ireland, England, Scotland, France, Germany, Switzerland and Italy. He married,in 1869, Miss Robinson, only daughter of the late William Robinson, who was the mayor of the town of Galt, and who contested the south riding of Waterloo in the Conservative interest against Jas. Cowen in 1863, and in that Reform constituency came within sixty-three votes of being elected. The fruit of the union is four children, three daughters and one son. The two eldest daughters died in 1874. The son is attending Upper Canada College, and is in his fifteenth year. In 1881 Dr. F. purchased a large fruit farm on the banks of the Niagara river, and upon the farm is the celebrated Whirlpool Rapids Park. We may add in conclusion that Dr. F. is not a parliamentary gladiator, but whenever the occasion demands he is ready, and gives his views with promptness, with point and with effect.

Johnny Ferguson,

When Johnny was about ten years old his people came to Doon and lived in the old Weaver house. He had one sister. He had been born with a very rough skin; so rough that the children called him "Alligator". He would reply "Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me".

No doubt where he lived before coming to Doon the children had been just as cruel. But Johnny could throw a ball farther than any of the boys and could run faster. We children all wanted
him on our team, when we played ball or "Run Sheep Run." As he had a walk about a quarter of mile alone after leaving his playmates he was asked aren't you afraid. No was his answer
"I always whistle and sing so loudly I cannot hear any other noise and I guess I scare everything away". The family moved in a few years and we didn't hear of Johnny again until he enlisted
in the Great War and while training with other soldiers in Berlin he broke the head of Kaise Wihlelm of the statute in Victoria Park and threw it in the lake. He was killed in action overseas

12511 ...This week University of Chicago's director of health, Dr. Dudley B. Reed, was to publish a warning in the University's daily paper. University of Minnesota's Dr. Ruth Boynton already warned, without much apparent good: "It's burning the candle at both ends. It means burning up more energy than the body has time to replenish. While we know the pills keep one awake, so little is actually known of their cumulative effects that we think it unwise for students to take them without a physician's advice. No more than two of these pills should be taken in any 24-hour period. The size of dose, however, depends a great deal on the individual. People with heart trouble and high blood pressure obviously should not take Benzedrine."

At the University of Toronto, the dean of women, Marion Black Ferguson, tried another method to forestall the pep-pill fad among woman students. She sees that they maintain their wits and vigor by taking pills containing calcium and phosphorus, eating regularly, going to bed early.

12534 At the June assizes Joseph and Thomas Ferris were tried for the murder of Henry Wilson, in Wellesley, in March. A dispute had arisen respecting the ownership of a strip of land, and Wilson had obtained a writ of ejectment, and upon going to serve it, Joseph Ferris knocked him down and strangled him with his scarf, the other prisoner looking on while it was done. They were both sentenced to be hanged, when they made a full confession, and their sentence was commuted to imprisonment for life. At the Quarter Sessions in July, Judge Powell had the gratifying duty to inform the Grand Jury that, for the third time, there were no prisoners for trial, and only one case was brought before the magistrates in Guelph during the whole year.

12536 39 Doon Valley Drive is associated with three prominent citizens of Waterloo County. The first owner, the Honourable Adam Ferrie, was the founder of Doon Village. Samuel Snider, who purchased the property from Ferrie, owned the Blair Mill, as well as other mills that he and a partner operated in Bridgeport and Baden. Thomas Slee, one of the first trustees of the area, and the Doon Postmaster from 1867 to 1893, was the last significant owner of the property, purchasing it from Snider in 1878. In addition to its association with persons of historic significance, Doon Valley Drive (formerly Doon Village Road), was once an important linkage between the Village of Doon to Tow Town and Oregon (today Upper Doon).
39 Doon Valley Drive is unique in its use of building materials and the methods of construction. This one-and-a-half-storey house combined granite, limestone, fieldstone and lime mortar in its construction. It retains many original, intact features, such as the stone chimney with cove moulding, and the single door with a transom, on the north façade.

12537 FERRIE, ADAM, industrialist, merchant, shipowner, and politician; b. 15 April 1777 at Irvine, Ayrshire, Scotland, 16th child of James Faerrie and Jean Robertson; d. 24 Dec. 1863 at Hamilton, Canada West.

Unlike most of Montreal's Scottish-born businessmen during the 19th century, Ferrie immigrated when middle-aged, after a highly successful commercial career in Glasgow. In his autobiography he describes the help given him by his father and elder brothers who had been trading successfully for many years to both the East and the West Indies and had interests in London and Liverpool sugar refineries. In 1792, at age 15, Ferrie opened a profitable cotton printing shop at Irvine; by 1799, when he moved to Glasgow, he had three factories in Scotland, and in 1811 he opened another in Manchester, England. His principal outlets were provided by ship captains, including several of his brothers, who accepted his goods on consignment for sale in their ports of call; many cargoes came to Quebec and Montreal. Ferrie himself occasionally visited foreign markets in Europe. By 1815 he had an estate of £70,000 and an annual trade of £100,000. He lost most of his fortune during the next few years, mainly through the failure of business associates whose notes he had endorsed, and he was forced to rebuild by augmenting his consignments to Canada, the Mediterranean, and Brazil. He spent some years in Jamaica attempting to re-establish himself.

In the hope of improving his sales to Canada and establishing his sons, Ferrie in 1824 set up his own firm in Montreal. He formed a partnership with William Cormack who had been associated for many years with Hector Russell and Company, a Montreal dry goods house. In 1825, with £35,000 capital supplied by Ferrie, the new firm, Ferrie, Cormack and Company, to which his son, Colin Campbell, was sent, began business in dry goods, hardware, groceries, and stationery on St Paul Street, Montreal's commercial centre in the early 19th century. Ferrie even built a vessel for the firm's trade, the 300-ton General Wolfe. Heavy initial losses forced him to take charge of the business himself; after a brief visit to Canada in 1826 he moved to Montreal with his family in May 1829.

Ferrie readily saw that western Upper Canada provided a rapidly increasing market for imported manufactured goods and, like a number of his competitors, he decided to establish a branch in that region. His sons Colin Campbell and Adam Jr, who had been in business with their father, chose Hamilton as the base for their Upper Canadian operations, which were now substantial, especially from York (Toronto) to Niagara. Ferrie conducted the Montreal end of the business, and his sons built up a profitable trade in the Hamilton area, establishing branch stores in nearby Preston (Cambridge), Brantford, Nelson, and Dundas during the early 1830s.

At Montreal, Ferrie, in addition to imports, was also involved heavily in exporting. He suffered enormous losses on flour, pork, beef, and butter shipments to Great Britain in 1842, but apparently recovered later to a level of considerable comfort. Suffering again through the bankruptcy of friends, Ferrie took an interest in revisions of bankruptcy legislation during the early 1840s. A supporter of the Montreal Committee of Trade, Ferrie took an active part in organizing it as the Board of Trade in 1842.

An outspoken radical reformer in Scotland, Ferrie eschewed any affiliation with Lower Canadian radicals during the troubled 1830s. In the organizations to which he belonged, such as the Constitutional Association, he counselled firm but balanced loyalism, to keep "the furiously loyal within moderate bounds as to their hatred of the French Canadians." Most loyalists in Montreal, he later recalled, "were so prejudiced as to assert that [French Canadians] were all traitors in their hearts whatever they might pretend." Ferrie earned little thanks for urging his friends to be less virulent and for the open contempt shown to the activities of the "set of silly puppies calling themselves the Doric Club."

Ferrie maintained the same independence and determined loyalism combined with a strong distrust of most politicians during his career in public life. In 1840 he was appointed by Lord Sydenham [Thomson*] to the municipal council governing Montreal and served on a number of committees until his resignation in 1843. Appointed also to the Legislative Council in 1841, he remained a member until his death. He seems to have regarded these honours more as duties, that of councillor, with its high costs of living away from home, being an expensive one. Despite his strong reform sympathies, Ferrie quickly developed a pronounced distaste for most Canadian Reformers. Reflecting later on the politics of the late 1840s and early 1850s, he remembered only "bickerings and low personalities between the place men and the place hunters, between the 'ins' and 'outs.'" Francis Hincks* and Louis-Hippolyte La Fontaine were "pretended Liberals" and "base creatures" who "seemed so wholly corrupt as to be insensible to shame."

Aside from his support of the St Andrew's Society, which he helped to organize in 1834, Ferrie directed his philanthropic efforts into unusual projects. He assisted personally in helping cholera-stricken immigrants in 1832 and 1834; during the 1830s he took a leading part in attempting to relieve the city's poor of high bread and fuel costs inflicted by combines of bakers and fuel dealers. From 1837 to 1840 he headed the committee managing the Montreal Public Bakery, a cooperative established to produce bread for sale "at the cheapest possible rate." The bakers countered by selling at less than cost and forced the cooperative out of business. A woodyard he established on a similar basis also collapsed with Ferrie personally bearing a substantial loss.

Ferrie invested little in the Montreal railway schemes of that era, but had strong interests in banking. He was active in the formation of the City Bank of Montreal, was a large shareholder in Hamilton's Gore Bank, and supported the City and District Savings Bank of Montreal. His other joint-stock ventures included the Ottawa and Rideau Forwarding Company, the Montreal Fire Assurance Company, and the Montreal Gas Company.

His wife, Rachel Campbell, had 12 children of whom six survived infancy. As most of them settled in Hamilton, Ferrie decided to retire there and in 1853, at age 76, he left Montreal, one suspects without much regret. He died in Hamilton on Christmas eve, 1863.

Honourable Adam Ferrie
 
12538 Adam Ferrie, Jr., the founder of Doon, was the first officially appointed postmaster in Preston, receiving the appointment on February 6, 1837. The post office was situated at the corner of King and Lowther Streets, where the Henning store was located. Emphasizing changing conditions through the years is the fact that when Ferrie was postmaster the office was open until 11: 00 p.m. and no holidays were permitted to the staff.

Ferrie had ambitions to build mills and become an industrialist. In 1834, unable to obtain a site on the Grand River in Preston, he purchased 300 acres on which he erected a grist mill, sawmill and distillery. This developed into the community of Doon.

The 1839 Doon Mills operated under the name of Adam Ferrie and Company until taken over by his brother Robert. Adam Ferrie, Jr., died in the prime of life at the age of thirty-six.

The Village of Preston was named, however, not by the Pennsylvania Germans, nor by the European Germans, but by an Englishman, William Scollick, the first surveyor, who named it after his native place. Among the earliest storekeepers were Adam Ferrie, Jr., son of the Hon. Adam Ferrie, of Montreal

Ferrie, ADAM, businessman; b. 11 Dec. 1813 in Glasgow, fifth child of Adam Ferrie* and Rachel Campbell; m. Jane Kinsey, and they had two sons and a daughter; d. 5 Feb. 1849 in Preston (Cambridge), Upper Canada.

Adam Ferrie was born into a family long engaged in commerce. In 1824 his father, a successful Glasgow merchant, established an importing and general merchandising business in Montreal as a branch of his Scottish enterprise and in an attempt to stake out a future for his sons. Five years later Ferrie Sr moved to Montreal with his family to take control of the business. The following year, as part of a major expansion, two sons, Colin Campbell* and Adam, both of whom had worked in other branches of their father's business, established a wholesale and retail store in Hamilton, Upper Canada. Branch stores, superintended by resident partners, were soon set up in five promising locations in Hamilton's hinterland: Brantford, Dundas, Nelson (Burlington), Preston, and Waterloo.

In partnership with Thomas H. Mackenzie, Adam had opened the Preston branch in 1832 under the name Adam Ferrie Jr and Company. In addition to running a general merchandising and forwarding business, the firm owned a tavern, barn, and blacksmith shop. The Ferries had also intended to build a grist-mill at Preston, but were unable to obtain the necessary water-rights. Instead, in 1834 Adam purchased for the family business a 300-acre farm and sawmill about four miles from Preston on the Grand River; an adjoining 280 acres were subsequently obtained. On this property he constructed an integrated milling complex, which he named Doon Mills (Kitchener), comprising a grist-mill, sawmill, distillery, tavern, granary, cooperage, and workmen's dwellings.

Doon Mills was an impressive and expensive operation. Ferrie, who from his youth had an interest in mechanics, designed the grist-mill on a grand scale. Its masonry construction and huge stone dam contrasted with the modest wooden mills typical of rural Upper Canadian villages. Despite the proportions of the dam, it proved unsound and burst in 1840, carrying away the distillery and other buildings. Additional expenses were incurred in reconstruction. Moreover, the new distillery proved a problem since, for some reason, it did not operate efficiently. Doon Mills was substantial, but it was a poor investment. When Robert Ferrie took over management in 1847 from his brother Adam, then ailing, he explained to their father that "too much money has been laid out up here, so as to make a profitable investment," and the complex did represent a considerable cost. The buildings were insured for £6,250, an under-valuation in Robert's opinion.

The investment at Doon was jeopardized by problems in other branches of the family business. During the early 1840s in Hamilton, Colin Ferrie and Company had encountered severe financial difficulties. In the settlement of its affairs, operating capital was diverted from Doon Mills and Adam complained to Robert that for lack of cash he feared being "forced out of the market." As well, over the next few years Colin borrowed money from Adam. These loans remained unpaid in 1847, making it difficult for Robert to balance accounts.

Adam was himself partly responsible for the problems at Doon Mills. He was not an "office man." He preferred superintending the daily operations of the complex and enjoyed dealing with customers personally, partaking of the social intercourse at the general store and post office which had been added to the complex. In consequence, according to Robert in 1847, the Doon accounts were poorly kept. Consisting mainly of single-entry bookkeeping and memoranda, they defied easy scrutiny.

Personal conflict and tension between Adam and his father put severe strain on the family business. The elder Ferrie had not approved of his son's choice of a wife and had opposed their wedding. Matters were brought to a head in 1847 by Adam Jr's deteriorating health. Suffering from tuberculosis, he feared death and the consequences of his hostile family's refusal to acknowledge or support his wife and two surviving children. To protect them, he changed his will in 1847, bequeathing to them Doon Mills and the Preston property, all of which, although in his name, was legally held for the family. He also gave his son, James, his interest in the family business. The family was furious, especially Robert, who, though managing Doon Mills, was not himself a partner in the family business. For more than a year, as Adam's health worsened, his father and brothers demanded that he relinquish title to his branch. In July 1848 his mother arrived in Preston to negotiate a settlement. Adam agreed to change his will and sign over the property; in return his father granted him and his family an annuity and altered his own will to provide for Adam's children. In his remaining months, Adam was forced to borrow money from friends and to beg his family for funds to pay his bills. He died in Preston on 5 Feb. 1849 and was buried in the Galt cemetery. Operations at Doon Mills were continued by Robert.

The career of Adam Ferrie illustrates the strengths and weaknesses of the family as a form of business organization. Family ties permitted both the extension of mercantile enterprise over long distances and the diversion of family finances to branches most in need. However, successful operation depended upon amicable relations, which could be disrupted by matters not directly pertaining to business.

Among the most prominent settlers who came here about 1832 were Adam Ferrie, Jr., and Samuel Liebschuetz; the former a Scotchman and youngest son of the Hon. Adam Ferrie, of Montreal, then head of a large wholesale house; the latter was a shrewd German Jew. Both started a store here and both did a thriving business. Mr. Adam Ferrie, Junior, commenced in the dwelling house of Jacob Roos, cooper, but soon built a new store and a large warehouse, at present owned by our worthy ex-Reeve Mr. William Schlueter, who converted the warehouse into that well known establishment called "Business Corner," Mr. Liebschuetz erected the store now owned and occupied by Mr. Uttick the tobacconist. Mr. Liebschuetz's business increasing rapidly, he built another store combined with a tavern; but not finding sufficient room in Preston for his energies and ambition, he traded his property in Preston against a mill property, now known as German Mills, but for many years known as Jewsburg, so named after its founder who was a Jew. This was the first grist-mill that was bought and enlarged with money earned in Preston. Liebschuetz by reason of some criminal act, as was supposed, fled the country and never returned.

Adam Ferrie, junior, who had taken in Thomas H. McKenzie as a partner, did a very thriving business. Possessed of a liberal education, he was one of the most honorable and straightforward of business men, always ready to aid in improvements. He desired to enlarge his business by the erection of a grist-mill and for that purpose endeavored to procure the water privilege and lands near the Grand River, them owned by Mr. John Erb, junior; but all at tempts to procure this land, though it was lying waste and remains a waste to the present day, proved futile. The means at the disposal of Mr. Adam Ferrie were considerable, while his father, who at that time was wealthy, encouraged the plans of his son, who upon seeing that he could neither with money nor persuasion procure lands in Preston, looked elsewhere for the investment of the funds at his disposal. He selected an old saw-mill with a good water power about four miles from Preston; purchased the same, sold out his Preston store to Thomas H. McKenzie and left Preston, to the great regret of all reflecting men. The place he selected for his investments he named Doon. Here he built a substantial dam, a large grist-mill, saw-mill, distillery, store, dwelling house, tavern and a number of small dwellings for the men in his employ. Thus out of a wilderness he made a thriving village. This was the second grist-mill built with money at least partly earned in Preston. But unfortunately family difficulties obliged Adam Ferrie to leave Doon and to let his elder brother manage its affairs. The old stern father had decided upon the change and poor Adam, the younger, had to obey. He left Doon broken hearted, and among his last words were heard the expression: "My brother will not be able to manage that business, it will go to ruin. My father has greatly wronged me, but I have obeyed him to the last." He soon died of a broken heart, a premature death; the Doon property became involved, and the Ferrie Estate lost it. Young Adam's prophecy became fulfilled.

12539 The Homer Watson House is associated with both Doon Village's founding resident, Adam Ferrie and Homer Watson, a local artist of national and international acclaim. The Homer Watson House was first built and owned by Adam Ferrie who established the community's mill and gave the village the name 'Doon'. Ownership passed to Homer Watson in 1883. Watson's artistic ability is reflected in the studio he built in 1893, using stone from a local building. He also constructed a gallery in 1906. He left evidence of his skill on interior pieces such as the frieze, which covers the walls of the studio and anteroom. Adam Ferrie
 
12540 November 9,1856 Death of Colin C. Ferrie; Esq. We deeply regret to announce the sudden death of Mr. Colin Ferrie of Hamilton, which took place at his residence in Hamilton on Sunday.Few men in Upper Canada are better known and more highly respected than was Mr. Ferrie. As head of the firm of C. J. Ferrie & Co., and as President of the Gore Bank, he stood high among the business men, and in the political world he had been long known as a consistent Liberal. He was the first Mayor of Hamilton and he had a seat in the Upper Canada Parliament before the Union. Mr Ferrie's death will cause deep grief to a wide circle of friends. He was the eldest son of the Hon. Adam Ferrie, and brother of Mr. Robert Ferrie M.P.P.


Berlin Chronicle Newspaper 12 Nov 1856

__________________________

FERRIE, COLIN CAMPBELL, businessman, justice of the peace, politician, and office holder; baptized May 1808 in Glasgow, son of Adam Ferrie* and Rachel Campbell; m. 8 Dec. 1830 Catherine Priscilla Beasley, daughter of merchant Richard Beasley*, and they had two sons; d. 9 Nov. 1856 in Hamilton, Upper Canada.

The eldest son of a Glasgow textile merchant, Colin Campbell Ferrie arrived in Montreal in 1824 with William Cormack, a partner in the wholesale and forwarding firm of Ferrie, Cormack and Company, newly established there by Colin's father. As a result of Cormack's subsequent mishandling of the business, the partnership was dissolved in 1826 but under Colin's management the firm recovered. In 1829 he entered into partnership with his brother Adam* and his father. The latter settled in Montreal and agreed to supply the wholesale and retail store established by his sons in the boom town of Hamilton under the name of Colin Ferrie and Company. Between 1830 and 1833 branches of the Hamilton store were set up at Brantford, Preston (Cambridge), Nelson (Burlington), Dundas, and Waterloo, centres which figured prominently in the rapid expansion of Hamilton's commercial hinterland.

Colin Ferrie's firm supplied rural merchants who, lacking sufficient credit, were unable to buy directly from forwarding companies in Montreal. Credit was likewise extended to retail customers. Further risk was incurred when produce was accepted on account, for fluctuations in market prices and shipping problems often upset anticipated returns. The business had a seasonal rhythm which began after the opening of navigation in late spring with the arrival of customers as well as supplies from Adam Ferrie Sr in Montreal. During the following winter, when bulky country goods owed on account could be transported by sleigh and delinquent clients were less likely to flee, Colin tried to settle debts. Clerks, such as Jasper Tough Gilkison*, were frequently sent out to make collections and, if that failed, debtors were brought to court. In 1833, for example, more than 20 summonses were issued on Ferrie's behalf. Some clients fled, others paid, and a few were sent to the Gore District jail, which Ferrie supplied. Appointed a justice of the peace in 1833, he made use of his powers to arrest those who stole from his store.

Legal recourse helped to shore up Colin's mercantile affairs, but he also sought to stabilize Hamilton-based trade by promoting local transportation facilities and financial institutions. As secretary of a joint-stock company formed to operate a steamboat out of Hamilton, he helped raise the capital that led to the launching of the Constitution in the summer of 1833. That November Ferrie and other district businessmen, including Andrew Steven*, submitted a petition for a chartered bank at Hamilton which resulted in the incorporation of the Gore Bank two years later. Ferrie succeeded James Matthew Whyte* as its president in 1839 and held the position until his death.

Throughout the 1830s Ferrie's mercantile, legal, and civic interests pervaded Hamilton. Unlike the brash parvenu Allan Napier MacNab*, he appears to have taken up public office as a duty and not simply as an opportunity. He occupied many local positions, but in a quiet fashion that lacked partisan zeal. During the cholera epidemic of 1832 he chaired the board of health and a year later was a member of the town's first board of police. In 1839 he helped to organize the Hamilton and Gore Mechanics' Institute and the local St Andrew's Society. He had resigned his position as a returning officer three years earlier to run successfully in the provincial election for Hamilton, which he represented in the House of Assembly until 1841. A moderate tory, Ferrie, like his father, did not respond vindictively to the rebellion of 1837-38 and, in fact, appeared as a defence witness at the trial of Solomon Lossing, the London District magistrate who was charged with treason but found not guilty. In the assembly, Ferrie's most noteworthy position was as a member of the select committee which investigated the financial crisis of 1837 [see Sir Francis Bond Head*].

Despite Ferrie's many positions, his affluence, prestige, and confidence were drastically reduced by the collapse brought on by this financial crisis. He had shunned the prudent counsel of his father, who had warned Colin and Adam against excessive ambition and had specifically denounced the extravagance of Westlawn, the £7,000 Hamilton estate which Colin had given his wife as a wedding present. The cost appears later to have forced an auction of some of his stock holdings at a large loss. He nevertheless survived the depression of 1837, in which many country clients defaulted, by selling off branch stores and sacrificing real estate. As well, the suppression of the rebellion brought hard currency to loyal businessmen such as Ferrie, who outfitted the 3rd Regiment of Gore militia with clothing, gunpowder, shot, camp ovens, and whisky.

Ferrie never quite regained his early mercantile paramountcy. While other merchants detected a general return of prosperity in 1840, a commercial rival, John Young*, regarded him as a spent force whose "old debts will be worse and worse to collect." Besides old accounts, Colin and Adam Ferrie Jr had additional burdens. The milling and distilling complex at Doon Mills (Kitchener), begun by Adam in 1834, needed costly repairs after a dam collapsed in 1840. Their father was unable to render much aid since two Montreal forwarding firms in which he was involved failed in 1841 and he lost heavily the following year on shipments of produce to Britain. Meanwhile, Isaac Buchanan* had established a large wholesale firm in Hamilton in 1840 and noted later that Colin Ferrie's business began to decline "when exposed to superior competition."

During the 1840s Ferrie turned to banking and real estate speculation on a major scale. The struggling Gore Bank required his increasing attention, particularly as it meshed with his business and land activities. From the outset it was undercapitalized and constantly denied the government business which benefited the Bank of Upper Canada and the Commercial Bank of the Midland District. Ferrie himself was part of the problem since investors and potential clients distrusted the involvement of a reduced merchant in a new bank. In early 1842 Gore Bank shares traded at a discount when it became known that Ferrie, as president, had borrowed about £17,000. The bank purchased property from him in 1844 for a new building directly beside his firm's store, making tangible his strong financial connection with the bank. Apart from his bank shares and his interest in the store and warehouse, his assets were tied up in real estate, which came into his firm's possession as payment from customers and increasingly through speculative investment. As early as 1835 he had advertised farms and urban lots for sale and by 1851 the firm had land valued at over £36,000.

The shock of nearly complete financial collapse after 1839 and persistent business troubles during the early 1840s eclipsed Ferrie's other local interests and shook his youthful confidence. His expansion had a public side, involving the promotion of the town and joint-stock companies, but over-extension, retrenchment, and survival were private matters. Thus for several years he withdrew from public life in order to scramble to meet his obligations, but gradually, as his business recovered, he re-entered civic affairs. He was a founding member of the Hamilton board of trade in 1845 and two years later became first mayor of the newly incorporated city of Hamilton. During his year in office he concentrated on fiscal affairs, which included civic financing by the Gore Bank and an appeal to the provincial government for aid to help the city provide hospital accommodation for the anticipated wave of impoverished Irish immigrants. Ferrie also became involved again in the promotion of joint-stock ventures. Realizing that the enlargement of the Lachine Canal between 1843 and 1848 would permit the operation of large vessels between Montreal and Lake Ontario, he served as chairman of the Burlington Bay Dock and Ship-Building Company, founded in 1847. Although he worked to finance a dockyard and a foundry for the company, no facilities appear to have been built before the company's reorganization in 1858.

The financial crisis of 1848-50, generated in Canada by an international tightening of credit, precipitated Ferrie's final withdrawal from public life. The failure in 1847 of Reid, Irving and Company, the Gore Bank's British agent, had caused the loss of several thousand pounds. Negotiations for a merger with the Bank of Upper Canada were dampened by the Reid, Irving collapse and by the consequent run on the Gore Bank. Persistent merger rumours, however, continued to concern Ferrie, whose easy access to Gore Bank financing was at stake. Once again he had to squeeze debtors, clear off stock, and mortgage property, and in this difficult period he quarrelled with family members over business affairs. Robert Ferrie, the brother who had taken over the management of Doon Mills in 1847, encouraged him to exercise more caution when extending credit and to sell off lots from Westlawn. Perhaps this preoccupation with teetering finances explains Colin's minimal involvement in a major local concern, the Great Western Railway. In 1834 he had been a charter supporter of its predecessor, the London and Gore Rail Road Company, but later seems to have lost much of his enthusiasm. He did join other local businessmen, however, in a bid to consolidate Hamilton's dominance in the vast area north and west of Guelph by supporting the construction of a Great Western feeder from Galt (Cambridge) to Guelph and another branch between Preston and Berlin (Kitchener) which would pass near Doon Mills.

In spite of commercial problems Colin and his father directed the reorganization and expansion of the family business in 1848. Of particular importance was their success in securing control of the Doon Mills from Adam, then in failing health. Following his death the next year, the Hamilton firm was re-formed by Colin with his brothers, John and Robert. During the railway boom in Canada West between 1852 and 1857, the firm appeared to regain much of its initial prestige. An agent for R. G. Dun and Company nevertheless questioned the brothers' ability to "underst[an]d the pres[en] ode of conductg bus[iness] as well as many others in the town." In addition, the stress inherent in rebuilding and protecting the family business undermined Colin's health and in 1855 a new series of crises struck his firm. Winter collections turned up an unusual number of bad accounts, two vessels carrying company goods sank on Lake Ontario, and a banking panic similar to that of 1842 broke when Ferrie was rumoured to have had a capital flow problem. At the time, his firm owed the Gore Bank £50,000. Colin met challenges from some of the bank's directors to his management of the bank by having the family purchase more shares, an intricate and, to some, suspicious credit arrangement, especially as family partnerships, under Adam Sr at Montreal and Colin at Hamilton, guaranteed the bills of exchange of each other.

The compounded difficulties were soon offset by general prosperity but the anxiety visibly affected Ferrie. In November 1856, after a meeting with directors of the Gore Bank, he collapsed and within days had died of "an enlargement of the heart." His business interests were continued by John and Robert Ferrie.

12544 Doon Presbyterian Church

The Minutes of the 1852 Annual Meeting of the Presbyterian Church of Canada refer to a joint charge of the congregations of Woolwich and Doon Mills in the Presbytery of Hamilton. In 1853 and 1854 Doon Mills was a charge with New Aberdeen. Formal organization of the Doon congregation was on July 9, 1853 by Rev. Dr. John Bayne of Knox's Presbyterian Church in Galt, who had held the first church service in Doon just two days before. The present church was built in 1854 on land donated by Mr. Robert Ferrie. Dedication services were held on December 31, 1854, with Rev. Bayne conducting the morning service and Rev. Duncan McRuer of Knox Presbyterian Church, Ayr preaching in the afternoon.
The congregation was placed on a two-point charge with New Hope (Hespeler) on October 25, 1855 with Rev. Thomas Isaac Hodgskin as missionary. A first communion service was held on February 25, 1856. Later that year (October 16, 1856), Rev. Hodgskin was inducted as minister; he later resigned from the Presbyterian Church. (The Minutes of the 1863 Annual Meeting of the Canada Presbyterian Church recorded that effective June 24, 1862 Rev. Hodgskin was considered no longer to be a minister or member of the Church.) Rev. Malcolm McKenzie arrived in the Fall of 1861 and was ordained and inducted to the service of both churches on February 12, 1862. Rev. George Haigh became Minister to Doon, Preston and Hespeler on April 24, 1876. On March 20, 1883 Doon and Hespeler were made into a pastoral charge under Rev. Haigh and were separated from Preston, which became a Mission Station.
The congregation later, in 1893, became a second charge to Preston, when Hespeler called its first full-time minister. In the same year, Rev. Herbert Francis Thomas became minister to the two-point charge of Doon and Preston. However, it was not until 1972 that Doon became independent. An ordained minister was appointed in 1976 and a manse was purchased in 1977. A new addition was constructed in 1980 and dedicated on November 9, 1980. The congregation of Doon Presbyterian Church became self-supporting as of July 1, 1982. Ten years later, another addition was completed, and officially opened and dedicated on Sunday, September 27, 1992.

Adam Ferrie, Jr., the founder of Doon, was the first officially appointed postmaster in Preston, receiving the appointment on February 6, 1837. The post office was situated at the corner of King and Lowther Streets, where the Henning store was located. Emphasizing changing conditions through the years is the fact that when Ferrie was postmaster the office was open until 11: 00 p.m. and no holidays were permitted to the staff.

Ferrie had ambitions to build mills and become an industrialist. In 1834, unable to obtain a site on the Grand River in Preston, he purchased 300 acres on which he erected a grist mill, sawmill and distillery. This developed into the community of Doon.

The 1839 Doon Mills operated under the name of Adam Ferrie and Company until taken over by his brother Robert. Adam Ferrie, Jr., died in the prime of life at the age of thirty-six.

Mr. and Mrs. Schweitzer settled in Conestogo following their marriage, Mr. Schweitzer conducting a harnessmaker business for several years after which he acquired the hotel from his father bearing the family name and which under the new management became a province-wide famous tourist resort and during its 35 or so years in their possession was particularly noted for its excellent meals. Just prior to Mr. Schweitzer's death early in 1929, he had disposed of the hotel business but Mrs. Schweitzer continued to live here and enjoy the esteem of a large circle of friends.

12576 Our community did not have a Police Constable in its early days. The settlement of Bergeytown, and later the hamlet of New Hope, was basically unprotected and relied on the honesty and goodwill of its citizens to be law abiding. With the incorporation of the Village of Hespeler, on January 19, 1859 the first Council meeting passed a motion by David Rife, seconded by C. Nahrgang that Henry Fields be appointed constable and "receive such fees as the law provides and only when on actual duty". The motion was carried and Henry Fields became the first police officer in Hespeler.

There was no lockup at the time, and the nearest goal was in Guelph, so anyone unfortunate enough to be incarcerated in the evening had to spend the night locked in a bedroom at the constable's house. There is a report of one such individual who woke Mr. Fields by making too much noise while trying to escape and was dragged back through the bedroom window by his ankles! The window was subsequently nailed shut. Mr. Fields continued as constable until 1873 and passed away one year later at age 63.

"The Queens". On a plan dated 1846 the corner lot at Queen and Guelph Road is shown as "The Tavern Lot" which suggests that there was then an hotel either in building or in operation. I am lacking in its earliest history.

Stephen Flynn kept Hotel there 1866-68; Michael Haller, 1868-71; John Fields, 1872-73; James Baker, 1874-86; then came the Waypers, father and son, and after them, Albert E. Thomson and then again by Joseph Wayper Jr. After "Josh" died the hotel was operated for a time by his widow and her second husband, Archie Smith. During the time of The Ontario Temperance Act, Mr. George D. Forbes bought the hotel and refurnished it and Henry Sachs managed it.

After Mr. Forbes died, George Thorlby rented the hotel and then it was sold to James Sutherland Cornell, by him to Joseph Krempowich who in turn sold to Samuel Sturman, the present owner.

Passed away peacefully, on Saturday, May 14 at Cambridge Memorial Hospital, after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer and lung disease. Surrounded by his family, John heard the call of God and has found the tranquility and well being that illness had taken from him. John was a loving and caring husband, father and avo in his 49 years of marriage. Left behind with heavy hearts are his wife Rosa, his children Anna and George (Dalila) and granddaughters Melanie and Sarah. Predeceased by his parents, Manuel Pedro Figueiredo (1970) and Ana Soares Braga (1990) and his brother, Antonio (1955). He will be sadly missed by his brothers and sisters Jose (late Gloria), Manuel (Ermalinda), Bernardino (Eliza) Evaristo (Fatima), Maria Andrade (late Manuel), Ines Figueiredo (Manuel) of Cambridge and Angelo (Maria do Carmo) and Jaime (Livramento) of Portugal. He also leaves fond memories with his large extended family including his brothers-in-law, Manuel Figueiredo (Beatriz), Bernardino Reis (Virginia) and Frank Reis (Maria) and sisters-in-law, Emilia Moreira of Cambridge, Virginia Reis of Santa Maria and Ana Andrade of Hudson Mass., along with 59 nieces and nephews. John was born and raised in Santa Maria Acores and immigrated to Canada in 1959. He married in 1962 and relocated to Cambridge (Galt) from Leamington, in 1965. He worked many years in the construction industry and spent the last 15 years of his work life, at Mitton Vinyl where he was affectionately known to his friends as 'Scooter'. His retirement allowed him to enjoy working on his large garden and spending time spoiling his granddaughters. From humble beginnings, John was determined to create a good life for his family and he succeeded. He was a very hard worker and took pleasure in the simple things in life. His greatest pastimes were spending time with family and playing cards. It was these items that he found most comforting, during his illness. Those that knew him well are left to cherish memories of a man of true character and optimism. It was truly amazing to watch his perseverance and sense of humour during a very difficult illness.

Alexander "Alex" Findlay
 
12622 The life of Charles Findlay, one of Shoal Lake?s first pioneers, began on May 11, 1846. He was born on his parents? homestead in the township of Nicol County of Wellington, Ontario. His parents, James and Margaret (Ruxton) Findlay, had emigrated from Aberdeen, Scotland. They raised a family of eight, namely: Dave, Alex, James, Robert, Charles, William, John, and Agnes. Charles received his education at the public school in Salem, Ontario, and at the age of fourteen set aside the books to assist his father on the farm. At Salem, on Oct. 6, 1869, Charles was married to Magdalena Eby who was the daughter of Jacob B. and Lucy (Kauffman) Eby. Magdalena was born on July 1, 1852. The Eby family were of Pennsylvania Dutch stock, having settled at Hammer Creek, Elizabeth Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in the 1700?s. The stately stone house built in 1754 by Magdalena?s great-great-great grandfather near Hammer Creek is still in use today. The stone mill also constructed at this site in 1790 is likewise still in use. Magdalena?s grandfather was Bishop Benjamin Eby, the first Mennonite minister in Berlin (Kitchener), Ontario. The Ontario government has erected a plaque in Bishop Benjamin?s honour on the site of the original church in Kitchener.

After his marriage, Charles was engaged in the store business in Salem, Ontario. The spring of 1879 saw Charles, along with his brothers Robert and James, brother-in-law Henry Eby, and John Simpson pull up their roots in Ontario and head west. They travelled by rail via Chicago and St. Paul to St. Boniface. A ferry transported men and belongings across the Red River into the newly incorporated City of Winnipeg. The men stayed in Winnipeg only long enough to purchase the necessary equipment, wagons, and oxen and then ventured north-westward along the Edmonton Trail. May 7th, 1879, found the men camped at the South End of Shoal Lake near the NWMP garrison. They liked the lay of the land, its undulating plains, wooded areas, and water supply. Travelling up the east side of Shoal Lake, each man sought a piece of land he would call home. Northwest of the present site of Shoal Lake, on 13-17-24, Charles filed claim on his homestead and preemption. At this date, the survey had not been completed beyond the South End, so the men undertook to run their own survey lines from the last stake. So accurate were their measurements that only minor changes were made by the Government surveyors the next spring. For the site of his new home, Charles chose a hill which was blooming so profusely with crocuses he named it Crocus Hill. During the ensuing weeks, all the men worked together, felling logs, and erecting homes. Potatoes were planted. Preparations were then made to meet their families in St. Boniface who had followed from Salem at a later date. The trip to and from Winnipeg occupied the better part of two months. The return trip was delayed en-route for nearly three weeks with the disappearance of the oxen one night. With the aid of friendly Indians the oxen were eventually found and the settlers were once again on their way.

Upon their arrival at their new homes, the settlers removed the canvas covers from their wagons and used them as partitions and curtains. Provender for that first winter consisted of wild game, fish, and potatoes. Sufficient flour had been brought with them, but an insufficient supply of salt forced Charles to drive to Palestine (Gladstone) to procure some as soon as travel was possible.

During the first years, wheat was taken to Gladstone, The Bend, and Assessippi to be ground into flour. On one of these trips homeward from the mill, Charles dug up some spruce trees and transplanted them on Crocus Hill. In his diary, Charles records having fought a prairie fire from Oct. 21 - Oct. 25, 1879. Such fires plagued the settlers for a few years until a sufficient amount of prairie sod was broken. A particularly bad fire in the fall of 1886 came within a few feet of engulfing the Findlay home in its path.

The crops of 1880 and 1881 were cut with a cradle. With neighbourly help and a pooling of the equipment at hand, the crops were harvested. Although progress may have seemed slow at first, Charles developed a fine farm in the ensuing years. In 1883 he added a second homestead and preemption to his holdings.

Charles and Magdalena were active in all community projects, including the formation of a school for the children. Charles was one of the founding members of the Shoal Lake Agricultural Society and was its president for many years. He was secretary treasurer for the local Grain Growers Association for a number of years.

Charles and Magdalena raised a family of eight: Jacob B. (1871-1962), Agnes (1874-1893), James (1876-1878), Charles Stan (1878-?), Eleanor (Ella) (1883-1974), Irvin Urias (1887-1954), Allan (1890-1979), and Ross (1891- 1939). The eldest four were all born in Salem, Ontario, and with the exception of James who died at two years of age, came west in 1879. Agnes died of appendicitis in 1893 and was buried under the spruce trees on the family farm. The four youngest children were born at Shoal Lake.
While attending the opening of the new Agricultural College in Winnipeg in 1914, Charles was taken ill. He died a few days later, on Feb. 27, 1914. Mrs. Findlay died on April 23, 1916. Both are buried in the Shoal Lake Cemetery.
On July 1, 1979, the descendants of Charles and Magdalena Findlay gathered for a reunion on the old homestead. To mark the farm?s centennial, a cairn was erected. The cairn shall also remain as a tribute to this pioneer couple who helped forge the way toward the settlement of the West.

12624 In the summer of 1882, grandfather Charles Findlay (who was a councillor for the County of Shoal Lake with head office at Birtle), while helping some of the newer immigrants to locate their homesteads, decided that the N 1/2 of Sec. 20, Twp 17 Range 24 was not a bad piece of land. As a result he acquired it as his second homestead.

In 1905 father, Jacob B. Findlay (better known as Jabe or J.B.) married Margaret Dunseith and moved into their new house on this piece of land. They had four children: Dad and Mother (Jabe and Maggie) lived on this farm until Mother?s death in 1941. In 1942, when Lloyd decided to enlist, Irene and I (Cliff) moved back to the farm to be with Dad.

WHOLE COMMUNITY IS SHOCKED BY GREAT TRAGEDY THIS WEEK

Sad Death of Mrs. Lorne Bowman Which is Charged Against Her Husband - Latter Has Been in Ill-health and His Mental Condition is Declared to Have Been Deranged - Most Distressing Event in History of Elmira Took Place at Home of Dead Girl's Mother - Coroner's Jury Formed.

CASE WILL BE HEARD NEXT WEEK

Never in the history of Elmira was the whole community so profoundly stirred as last Monday morning when the word passed from mouth to mouth of the sudden and tragic death of Mrs. Lorne Bowman, formerly Miss Norraine Fischer, who was visiting at the home of her mother, Mrs. Charles Fischer on King Street. It was at first reported that death had been due to heart failure, and later it was rumoured that it had been self-inflicted. Only gradually did the details of her slaying, now charged to have been done by her husband with a hatchet, while in a state of mental derangement, reach the general public. It was a touching tribute to the high regard in which both husband and wife and their families were held, that on every hand and the grief and consternation were unrestrained, when the tragic occurrence was understood. It was a blow that touched the whole town to the heart.

Taken In Custody


As soon as the facts were learned, Lorne Bowman was taken into custody by Chief Stiles, being apprehended at the home of his mother whither he went immediately after leaving the scene of the tragedy. He made no endeavour to avoid the consequences of his act, and is alleged to have confessed immediately on his arrival at his mother's home that he had killed his wife. His brother, Mr. Bert Bowman, who was present endeavoured to quiet him and learn the facts until the arrival of the authorities. He did not seem, at any time, to realize the gravity of his act, it is stated.

The jury, which has hurriedly empanelled by the Corner, Dr. Wagner, after viewing the body at noon, adjourned until Tuesday of next week at the request of the Crown Attorney, D. S. Bowlby of Kitchener. Lorne Bowman then appeared before Magistrate Weir and was formally charge\\d with the death of his wife. He was then removed to Kitchener to await hearing.

Details Unknown

The exact details of the sad death of Mrs. Bowman are not known. Mrs. Fischer, who knows the circumstances better than anyone else, is too distraught by the shock to tell much. Monday morning, Mrs. Bowman had attended a mass, singing with the choir, the service being held for deceased members of the Sodality of St. Theresa Church. She was in good spirits at the time, and on her return to her mother's home she went upstairs it is reported to make up the beds, her baby girl being with her. Whether her husband was in the house at this time, or whether he entered after her is not clear as yet. The first intimation of the tragedy was when Mrs. Bowman's mother, Mrs. Fischer, who was working downstairs, heard a slight scream, and, going in the front hall, saw the child stumbling down the stairs. Noticing blood on his clothes, she picked him up, thinking he was injured, but on finding nothing serious, went upstairs to reassure the child's mother, when she found Mrs. Bowman dead. As she rushed out to give the alarm, Bowman calmly departed.

The death of Mrs. Bowman was due to the severing of the jugular vein in her neck following repeated blows with a small hatchet, which, it has been alleged, was borrowed by the accused man. Her wrist was also gashed. The post-mortem was performed by Dr. Watson.


In Ill Health

Much pity is felt locally not only for the victim of this tragedy and her family but, also for the poor lad who is accused of the deed, as it is the general feeling that he was not responsible for his actions, owing to his deplorable mental condition brought on by a long period of nervousness and ill-health. He has been in ill health for a considerable time, and was forced some months ago to give up his position in London, and was for a time in the hospital there before coming back to Elmira, where he has been living with his mother, while Mrs. Bowman and young child have been visiting her mother, Mrs. Charles Fischer. Of a nervous disposition, Bowman is said to have suffered shell shock as a result of his experiences a the front, and lately has been very depressed owing to ill-health and lack oof a position.

No Motive

Of late his condition has appeared to be worse, and it is stated that being unable to sleep, he has frequently walked and run miles into the country being seen at late hours in many different parts of the countryside long distances from town, and it has even been necessary to send out search parties for him. It is understood that his wife and mother, Mrs. Davis, were making plans to have him sent back to the Sanatorium at London, although it is said that he himself did not desire to go. There is no doubt that his condition will be the important point of the investigation of the tragedy at the trial, and it is understood that the authorities may be inclined to admit that the young man was not mentally responsible. There is no real motive for his alleged act, as there was no domestic friction, and he was always very fond of Mrs. Bowman.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Bowman were popular and well-known residents of Elmira, where they went to school and were prominent in the younger circle, being members of highly respected families of this town. They were married less than two years ago, and took up their residence in London, making frequent visits to their two mothers in this town, however. Besides her widowed mother, the late Mrs. Bowman leaves one sister, Mrs. Heimbecher of Toronto. The funeral is being held this morning to St. Theresa Church.

HOUR OF SORROW AT REQUIEM MASS

Whole Community Joins in Impressive Threnody at Funeral

STRICKEN WOMEN BURIED

Priest of Parish Pays Tribute in Touching Story of Mrs. Bowman

The most poignant hour in the history of this community was the funeral requiem, held in St. Theresa's Church last Thursday morning, when the whole town paid its last tribute of honour and sorrow to the late Mrs. Lorne Bowman, whose tragic death on the preceding Monday had so deeply touched all. The church was filled as never before with citizens of all creeds and callings, and the wealth of beautiful wreaths and sprays banked in the chancel combined with the saddened countenances of every face in that congregation to attest the depth of emotion, which this sad day had plumbed.

A Solemn Moment

As the beautiful casket moved up the aisle with the bearers, and was followed by the chief mourners, members of the families of both the stricken woman and her unfortunate husband, there was scarcely a dry eye. Mrs. Fischer, mother of Mrs. Bowman immediately followed, escorted by Mr. Bert Bowman, brother of Lorne Bowman and by Mrs. Louis Fischer. Following were Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Heimbecher, Mr. and Mrs. Plante, and other relatives on both sides of the family. The pall-bearers were Messrs. J. McMillan, William Martin, Henry Brunck, Leo O'Neill, N. H. Korell and H. Weichel.

Hierarchy Present

The solemn high-mass for the repose of the soul of the departed was chanted by the Rev. Father Beechy, (smudge) of the church, assisted by Rev. Father Becker of St. Clements as deacon and Rev. Father Vincent Morgan of Macton as sub-deacon, St. Mary's church, Kitchener, acting as master of ceremonies. Seated in the sanctuary were numerous priests from surrounding parishes.

Funeral Oration

A brief but intense funeral oration was given by the Rev. Father Beechy in which he referred touchingly to the sadness of the whole community, and the uncertainty of death, of which neither the day nor the hour is known, though the time and the place and the manner remain enfolded in mystery. In a few words, he told of the life of Mrs. Bowman. She had passed her childhood here, attending the town school, and had then graduated from Kitchener Business College, afterwards being employed in the Royal Bank here. Her high talent as a singer was also referred to. Then, said Father Beechy, at eighteen or nineteen years of age, she placed her heart in love at the foot of the gallant youth in uniform, and for two years she had been married to a man of ability living in London, until their recent return to Elmira.

Last Events

Father Beechy then recalled that on the evening before her death, he had been with Mr. and Mrs. Bowman at the home of their mother, Mrs. Fischer, and that they had been playing with their child, and everything seemed most harmonious. On the following morning, Mrs. Bowman sang the solo at the requiem mass, "Lord, Have Mercy," almost as the prophetic crying of a soul knowing its need though unconscious why.

"Let us forget the event that followed," said the speaker then, "And let us draw a veil over them."

He Then told of what he considered the Providential guidance that he had received in so much as he had not returned to Kitchener the previous day as was his custom, but was in Elmira and was able to reach the crying woman before the spark of like had fled and administer the last rites of the church. This, he declared, was due to the little child who had given the alarm. After the conclusion of the church service the stately cavalcade moved in a long line to the Roman Catholic Cemetery, where the last interment service was conducted.

Attended Funeral

Among those from out of town who attended the funeral of the late Mrs. Lorne Bowman, which was held on Thursday morning of last week from St. Theresa's church, were the following: Mr. M. Reidel, Mrs. W. Schweitzer, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Reidel, Mr. Wm Reidel, Mr. and Mrs. George Witham, Mrs. Fischer, Mr. and Mrs. William Reiber, Mrs. Chas. Ball, Mr. J. Fischer, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Fischer, Mr. and Mrs. Shoemaker of Kitchener, Mr. and Mrs. Haid, Mr. and Mrs. L. Schaller, Mr. and Mrs. Alf Schaller, Mr. and Mrs. F. Schaller, Mr. and Mrs. P. Reidel, of Preston, Mr. and Mrs. J. Reidel, Mr. and Mrs. E. Reidel, Mr. Peter Meyer, Mr. and Mrs. C. Leinhart, Mr. and Mrs. Leo Voisin, Mrs. Isbauch, of St. Clements, Mr. and Mrs. Leinhart of Linwood, Mr. and Mrs. F. Fischer, Misses Luella and Ellen Fischer of Elora. Mr. and Mrs. Fred Heimbecher, Miss N. Heimbecher, Hanover, Mrs. N. Heimbecher of Winnipeg, Miss M. Heimbecher of Waterloo, Mr. R. O'Neill of Toronto.3a

TENSE ATMOSPHERE WHEN FIRST HEARING GIVEN TRAGIC CASE

Lorne Bowman Appears Before Magistrate Weir Here Charged With Death of His Wife - Chief of Police Produces Statement Signed By Husband of Stricken Woman Which is Stated To Be Confession - May Reveal Motive Which Has Been Mystery

WITNESSES GIVE EVIDENCE REGARDING TRAGEDY

The courtroom at the local fire hall was crowded to the doors yesterday afternoon when the preliminary hearing into the sad death of Norraine Bowman was held. Lorne Bowman the husband of the unfortunate young woman being charged with the slaying. The most sensational feature of the session was the production by Chief Stiles of a statement, which he said had been signed just before the hearing by Lorne Bowman, purporting to be a confession of the whole affair.

Contents Unknown

Mr. Hattin of Kitchener, acting for Lorne Bowman, objected to the public reading of this statement, and the nature of the contents is being kept a close secret, except for the statement of Crown-attorney Bowlby that it consisted of an admission of the slaying. It is understood that the statement is however, quite a lengthy one, and it is believed that it may explain the motive which has hitherto remained a mystery.

Is Unimpressed

Throughout the hearing, Lorne Bowman sat, a slight and impassive spectator, apparently less moved than any other person in that crowded courtroom. His face was calm and showed no trace of strain or anxiety, and he looked about at the familiar faces of his fellow citizens with a glance that conveyed the impression that he had only done what was right and natural. Even when the blood-soaked clothing worn by his slain wife, and the fatal hatchet were produced, his glance at them showed only a casual interest. Only once during the hearing did he attempt to speak and then he was quickly silenced by his counsel.

Lorne Bowman himself maintains that he is quite in his proper mind, and stated the the Chief of Police just prior to the hearing that they would have a hard time proving that he was insane. He remains in good physical condition, and ate a hearty dinner after the trial.

First Witness

The first witness to appear before Magistrate Weir this afternoon was Abraham M. Bowman, local draughtsman, who produced a plan showing the location of the north-west bedroom at the Fischer home, where the tragedy occurred.

Chief of Police Stiles was the next witness. He told of being called at 9: 50 on the morning of the tragedy and finding the stricken woman lying in a pool of blood with arms and legs slightly extended. The hatchet was lying on its head, with the shaft against her waist.

At this point the bloodstained clothing of the girl was exhibited in the courtroom, as well as that of the baby who was in the room during the tragedy, and the suit worn by Lorne Bowman at the time of the slaying. The telltale hatchet was also produced and the bedding from the room.

Mother's Testimony

Mrs. Charles Fischer, mother of the slain girl was the next to take the stand. She told of conditions in the home and said that her daughter Norraine had asked her husband, Lorne Bowman to come to the house next morning to look after the baby, while she went to church. She then reviewed the events of the tragic morning that led to her finding her daughter stricken on the floor of her room.

Mrs. Haack, the next-door neighbour told of being called by Mrs. Fischer and rushing to the scene. Dr. Watson, who was called at once, told of the position of the body. He performed the post mortem, and stated that haemorrhage and shock had caused death.

Counsel's Question

At this point, Mr. Hattin, counsel for the defence, interrupted and asked why no call could have been heard by Mrs. Fischer.

"The washing machine was going," said Dr. Watson, "So that she could not hear, and moreover the first cut was probably deep and would cut off the vocal cords."

Mr. Bert Bowman, brother of the accused man, was then called but upon objection from Mr. Hattin, he was allowed to step down again without testifying.

After some further argument between counsel as to the statement said to have signed by Lorne Bowman, which his counsel declared to be without significance, the court was adjourned. The next hearing to be at the Fall assizes.


FIND HUSBAND WAS SLAYER OF WOMAN

Pathetic Evidence Given At Inquest Into Tragedy Here

CROWN HEARS FULL STORY

Death of Mrs. Bowman Described By Witnesses - Jury's Finding

"We find that Norraine Bowman came to her death on June 30th from wounds inflicted by a hatchet in the hands of her husband, Lorne Bowman", declared the coroner's jury Tuesday night after hearing the evidence regarding a tragedy, which has shocked this whole neighbourhood. The jury were out twenty minutes.

Following the inquest, which was held before Coroner Dr. Leroy Wagner, Mr. D. S. Bowlby, crown attorney of Waterloo County, announced that Bowman's preliminary hearing would be held in Elmira Wednesday afternoon. He stated that it was probable the young man be sent up for trial on a charge of murder, with provision made for his examination by alienists.

Mental Trouble

Prominent among the evidence given tonight was the story told by the young man's brother, Herbert Bowman, who said that Lorne Bowman had twice been diagnosed as suffering from dementia praecox. The first examination was in Guelph sanatorium where he had been sent after an attempt to commit suicide and the second early this spring when he had been sent to the London hospital.

"You knew your brother intended getting married and you did not warn the girl of his condition?" asked the crown attorney. "No, he told me he told her." said the brother.

He said that this spring he had discussed his brother's case with the woman who is now dead, but she would not hear of him going to an asylum. He said he had feared his brother might commit suicide but he had never thought of murder.

"Murder is what always results from any dementia praecox cases I have come across" commented the crown attorney.

Mrs. Fischer's Evidence

The evidence of Mrs. Fischer, mother of the slain girl, was very touching as she told of the courtship and marriage of her daughter. She stated that so far as she knew Lorne Bowman was in good health at the time of the marriage and that their family life had gone smoothly. Asked by the crown attorney if he seemed quite normal, she said she never saw anything wrong with him, though she had heard something about this being in Guelph, and later in a London Hospital, but she did not know why he had gone.

Mrs. Fischer stated that she did not notice anything peculiar about him the night before when he had been at her home. She did not know if he had kissed her good night, but added that they were an affectionate couple.

Tragic Morning

Mrs. Fischer then told of the tragic morning and how Lorne Bowman had kept the baby while his wife was at church. While doing this he had carried water for Mrs. Fischer who was washing and seemed quite Norman. She then told that after her daughter came home she changed her dress and offered to make up the beds about eight-thirty. Her husband went upstairs with her. Shortly after he brought down some pillow cases saying "These are the pillow cases Norraine sent down."

"What happened next?" asked the Crown.

"Then I heard the baby crying most terribly." said Mrs. Fischer. "It must have been shortly after nine. I went as far as the steps and called "Norraine, what are you doing with the baby? I got no answer. Then came the baby walking toward me all full of blood, so I picked baby up and said "Norraine what did you do with baby? I got no answer, so I called him "Lorne, what happened baby? I got no answer at all. So I walked upstairs through the hall and all I saw was blood and Norraine stretched there," she concluded. She then called her neighbour Mrs. Haack.

Brother's Testimony

Mr. Bert Bowman, brother of Lorne Bowman was the next witness. After telling of his brother's health generally, he said that Monday morning; shortly after nine his brother came up to his room and told him he had killed Norraine. He said nothing further until the Chief of Police arrived, but was in a very excited condition. Mrs. Ainsworth told of seeing him running from the Fischer home to his mother's looking worried and sick.

Dr. Watson told of being summoned by Lorne Bowman's mother in 1921, saying that her son had tried to take Paris green. The doctor brought him around. He was then placed in Guelph sanatorium, but was only there a week when he was taken out, as his mother thought he would get better in the country. The doctor had treated him for nervousness, but stated that otherwise he had seemed Norman. At the end of the evidence, Corner Dr. Wagner said to the jury, "In the fact of the evidence, I would say this is murder."3a

DID HE REALIZE - No Says One Expert: Yes Says (rest missing)

LEGAL BATTLE IS WAGED ON SANITY ISSUE


All Day Yesterday Court Was Tense While Witnesses Were Called For Defence And Prosecution To Decide If Lorne Bowman Understood The Nature and Quality Of His Act When His Wife Was Slain - His Relatives Tell Of His Nervous Condition Years Before

EXPERTS AGREE ON MENTAL DISEASE BUT NOT ON RESPONSIBILITY

Before a tensely crowded court a legal battle was staged all day yesterday on the sanity of Lorne Bowman of Elmira, charged with the slaying of his wife, on June thirtieth last, when she was struck down with a hatchet in the bed room at the home of her mother, Mrs. Charles Fischer. One witness followed another casting different and new lights on the tragedy which saddened this town last summer, but at six thirty in the evening the issue was not yet defined and the court was adjourned til today and how long it will require before the case is summed up and the jury bring in their verdict no one could forecast last evening. The jurors were locked up under the guardianship of the sheriff, and constables watched them to see that no one communicated with them regarding the case. They were warned by the judge not to discuss it even among themselves.

Morning Session

The witnesses in the morning brought out little that was new. Mrs. Ainsworth of Elmira was the first, and was followed by Chief Stiles who told of the conditions surrounding the securing of the confession dictated by the prisoner last July, and incidentally had some lively tilts with Mr. Hattin counsel for the defence.

Mrs. Fischer then told of the events of the tragic morning, much as has had been related previously. Dr. Watson also gave medical testimony.

Brother's Evidence

In the afternoon, the evidence became more pointed as the question of the responsibility of the prisoner was pressed more instantly. Mr. Bert Bowman, brother of the accused, first entered the box. He stated that the accused had told him the confession he had dictated was not true, but that he made it as he feared an asylum, and wanted death, as he said he had been told by chief Stiles that he would be put in a padded room and never allowed out. The witness said his brother's nervousness was a long standing as he had been forced to stay home from school as a boy because he could not control his emotions. He had always possessed "an inability to place himself in normal relation with other people." The witness continuing traced the life of his brother through the years, mentioning repeated spells of breaking down throughout. After giving up his work in the spring, the prisoner had declared he could not compete with other men owing to mental deficiency, and that it was absolutely impossible to get better and the sooner he was dead the better.

"I don't thing I have ever talked to my brother since the tragedy that he did not say his one idea was to die" concluded the witness. Crown-prosecutor Sims in cross-examination of the witness emphasized the fact that the prisoner passed his examinations well at school, was well enough to enlist, and take up bookkeepers work on his return, as well as get married.

Other Witnesses

Mr. Edward Plante, the next witness for the defence, told of the way the prisoner would break down and cry often, and how he once asked for a gun so he could end himself. In cross-examination, Prosecutor Sims brought out the fact that the prisoner was quite a reader, and followed books intelligently. Mrs Plante was then called upon and told of incidents in the life of her brother, the accused.

Mental Expert

Doctor Fisher of London, a mental expert then appeared for the defence. He told of examining and treating the accused for a form of insanity, dementia praecox, this spring and having him in St. Joseph's Hospital, London for two weeks. He believed the prisoner had been abnormal since childhood, and he was physically underdeveloped and undernourished. His examination had revealed muscular tension, and poor circulation with ?amnty feet and hands, which were signs of dementia praecox. The doctor told of peculiar actions he had observed also indicating this form of insanity. Prisoner would say that he was a weakling and always would be. The witness said delusions were characteristic of this mental disease, and that these delusions would carry one any length with fantastic and criminal impulses. Observation had convinced him that the prisoner should have been committed to an institution for the insane.

Did Prisoner Understand?

The judge Mr. Justice Wright, then asked if he thought the prisoner appreciated the nature and quality of his act in slaying his wife.

"I believe he appreciated the nature of his act," replied Dr. Fisher, "He knew that he was killing. But I do not think he appreciated the quality of his act."

Pressed by the judge to explain the distinction, the witness said he did not think the prisoner had realized the significance of the act.

"Judging from the nature of the crime," he said, "I do not think he appreciated what he was doing, nor the result of the act." He added that the very hacking done was a sign of an insane impulse. When Mr. Hattin, counsel for the defence pointed out that the prisoner had been acting as usual on the morning of the tragedy just before the deed happened, the witness said an insane man may take any impulse suddenly without giving any warning whatever.

"Would he know his act was wrong?" asked Mr. Hattin.

"Judging from the nature of the crime, the use of the hatchet, and the history of the man, I do not think he knew the crime was wrong."

Question of Hatchet

In cross-examination, Mr. Sims secured an admission that there was no hereditary insanity in the family and no physical signs to necessarily denote insanity.

"You think he was seized by a sudden irresistible impulse?" asked the lawyer. The witness agreed.

"Then," asked Mr. Sims, "How do you account for the hatched?" Crown prosecutor then added that the hatchet had been brought from London, and kept carefully, and brought over to the Fischer home to be used. Does this, he asked, look like sudden irresistible impulse?"

Considerable sparring then followed between the lawyer and the witnesses regarding whether the prisoner understood the nature and quality of his act. The judge asked how the witness accounted for the prisoner running home after the killing, and the witness answered that this was an automatic act.

"Does it show knowledge of wrong?" asked the judge.

"Not necessarily," was the reply. Mr. Hattin for the defence pointed out that the prisoner had run home and not any place to escape. He also called Mr. Davis, the prisoner's step-father to show that the prisoner had not brought the hatchet from London himself, but that the craters of the goods had used it and then put it in the last box packed.

Another Expert Testifies

Dr. English, Superintendent of the Hamilton Asylum, was then called by the crown and examined by Mr. Sims. The witness told of examining the prisoner, for two hours last July, and said he came to the conclusion that the prisoner was suffering from dementia praecox. He declared however that he thought the prisoner was able to appreciate both the quality and nature of his act at the time of the tragedy. He based his reasons on the normal conduct of the accused the night before the tragedy, and the morning before it, in his looking after the child and in his acceding to the requests of his mother-in-law to carry water. From his general attitude and demeanour he believed the accused was quite able to judge right and wrong. He knew, he believed what his act meant in taking a life, and his attitude after the act witness declared showed he realized what he had done. Instead of staying to help one he professed to love, he ran away to escape those who might take him in charge. To the suggestion of Mr. Hattin for the defence that he might have realized the significance of his act afterwards but not at the time, the witness made the admission that this was possible. He also admitted that he might for a moment have had an irresistible impulse and not known what he was doing. Crown Prosecutor Sims then mentioned the hatchet and to this the witness said it looked like a premeditated crime.


Impressive Scene Is Court At Kitchener


A solemn dignity, impressive and deeply suggestive of all the power of civilizations machinery for the protection of society, pervaded the atmosphere of the sombre court-room in Kitchener yesterday as Lorne Bowman, a slight and almost frail figure, sat in the prisoner's box facing the judge and jury and the gowned lawyers in whose hands rested his life and his fate. It seemed almost incredible that all this imposing array of legal talent, court clerks, long-faced jurors, and curious spectators were assembled because of this young lad, who slouched in his seat with a bored unconcern which took only a fleeting note of the proceedings.

The accused man was dressed with evident care in a blue serge suit and wore a soft pique collar and a white tie. He was scrupulously groomed, and his very nails were polished and showed care. He displayed his characteristic mannerisms, however, constantly placing his left hand on his chin, running it through his hair, or leaning it against the back of his neck.

As a rule he showed little interest in the proceedings. He yawned often, stretched himself, and exhibited every evidence of boredom. Occasionally, however, he seemed to follow the proceedings with at least a brief interest. When his brother-in-law, Mr. Plante, described him as reserved and shy he smiled broadly and also evidenced amusement when counsel asked his sister what kind of reading he was interested in. He looked at his sister with an attention he did not show to the other witnesses. When Dr. fisher, the mental expert, tried to describe dementia praecox, the disease he is alleged to be suffering from, he was amused, and laughed heartily for a moment when Dr. Fisher said his habits of running his hand over his face and head, and the fact that he once pretended to the doctor to be much interested in a book when it was upside down, were signs of dementia praecox. Again when certain references were made of himself and his wife, he colored and laughed nervously.

On the whole however, the prisoner in the witness box was an enigma, a puzzle, a strange and pitiful bit of humanity gone astray somehow before the winds that blow on the ocean of life. One thought of his constant phrase, "I am afraid," repeated to his brother so often before the tragedy, and his words since that awful day in June - "I really want to die, that is the only thing I desire." And one wonders what strange thoughts frit through his mind, as the court goes logically on probing the facts on which hang his destiny.


NOW STANDING TRIAL

LORNE BOWMAN who is now under indictment for slaying of his wife on June 30th last. This photo was snapped as he stepped from the Elmira lock-up last July.

GRAND JURY DECIDES BOWMAN SANE ENOUGH TO STAND HIS TRIAL

Jury Announces Decision Early Tuesday Afternoon Following Hearing of Witnesses Regarding Conduct of Accused - Verdict Does Not Mean Prisoner Sane But Merely That He Understands Sufficient To Go On Trial

JUDGE WARNS AGAINST BEING SWAYED BY SYMPATHY FOR ACCUSED

The proceedings before the Grand Jury in the case of Lorne Bowman of Elmira charged at the Kitchener assizes with the murder of his wife, Norraine, culminated Tuesday afternoon when the jury declared its belief that the prisoner was sufficiently sane to precede with his trial on the charge of murder. The point, which the jury decided, as Mr. Justice Wright pointed out was not the mental responsibility of the accused for the crime but whether he was sufficiently sane to understand what was going on in the court, and follow the proceedings. The verdict of the Grand Jury was not that the accused was sane, but that he was fit to stand trial.

The judge, Mr. Justice Wright, in his charge to the jury made it clear that in his own opinion the accused was sufficiently capable of comprehension to understand the trial, and should be committed.

Judge's Charge to Jury

Justice Wright among other things said: "Gentlemen of the jury the issue in one respect is simple; for it comes down to a single point. In this case it is not at all complex. The issue is whether the prisoner on account of insanity is able to take his trial. There have to be established two things in order to prove that he is not able to take his trial. First that he is insane, and secondly that the insanity is of such type as to render him unfit to take his trial. He may be insane but it must be established that the insanity is so severe that he could not stand trial. At the outset I wish to again emphasize the fact that your are not trying the prisoner on the charge with which he is indicted. You are not trying his guilt of the alleged murder. Your responsibility is along another direction altogether.

Degrees of Insanity

"There are a great many degrees of insanity. Even if the prisoner were now being tried for murder and if the alienists all said he ware insane, that would not be sufficient to convict him of the charge of murder; for it would have to be shown that the insanity was of such a nature that he did not know the nature of the act or that he had done wrong. The insanity there must be of a certain type. If the prisoner is intelligent enough to tell his counsel what took place and the circumstances, he's fit to be put on trial. There is of course a great variety in the intelligence of people. Some are alert and see every possibility of a defence and can instruct their counsel. Some on the contrary suggest a defence that has no foundation in fact, while others are incapable of either and are slow mentally.

No Easy Way Out

"Upon the evidence here today you must decide whether or not this man is fit to be put on trial. Gentlemen of the jury, do not look for an easy way out. In the administration of justice it is necessary that every crime should be sifted to the bottom and that the prisoner should be given every opportunity to put his defence in open court. It is right that there is no short way in our courts where by criminal cases are put through hurriedly. Have no thoughts of bringing in a decision merely to avoid a trial. Do your duty, like men. Your are acting in the interests of the country. Your duties as members of the jury are the highest of any, for they have to do with the administration of justice. Do not be swayed by sympathy for this unfortunate man. Decide the issue solely on the evidence that has been submitted to you."



Jury's Verdict

Court had just reconvened for the afternoon session when the jury fled in.

"Is he fit or unfit?" asked the clerk of the court amid a tense silence.

"We find him fit." Said Foreman J. C. McKay of Linwood.


Mental Specialist

A feature of the hearing Tuesday morning was the declaration of Dr. English, alienist of the Ontario Hospital for the insane, Hamilton, that the prisoner was insane but that he was able to understand what was going on and that he was on trial. The Crown also produced a statement signed by Bowman July 9, which he made voluntarily to Chief Stiles of Elmira. In this statement, which was given after the chief had issued a warning that any statements he would make could be used against him Bowman said that the deed was a "case of wilful, premeditated murder - that I remember everything. I had an argument with my wife some time before, because I objected to her wearing a ring, which she got from another man before she married me. She said she got it from a better man than I am. I struck her down - she was facing the bed."

Condition in Jail

Part missing

he is much better. He told me one day he would not stand for the plea of insanity. He mentioned there was so much red tape about the law and he did not see why everything would not be finished at once. I asked him one day where he got the hatchet from, but I forget now what he answer was.

Previous Conduct

Mr. Ed. Plante of Elmira a brother-in-law of the accused stated that Bowman had always been a little odd from school days on, and more particularly since his father's death in 1917. At Bramshott Camp in England Bowman stated that he had a good notion to end it all. After that he was examined in the hospital and later allowed out. Witness did not see him again until they were both back in Canada, and then he appeared to be a little worse than in the Old Country, often having crying spells and throwing his arms around the witness.

Took Paris Green

"One night he seemed worse than usual," said Plante, "and his mother asked us to stay with him, and he told me that he had taken Paris green and I said,

"No," but he said, "Look under the bed." I did and I saw the glass. We telephoned for the doctor and later he was taken to the Guelph Sanatorium. Later he was treated at St. Joseph's Hospital in London."

Witness said that Bowman had often broken down, occasionally ran away, and often said that he wished he were dead.

"Did he ever show any tendency to do away with any one else besides himself?" asked H. J. Sims, K. C., for the Crown.

"None except himself."

Herbert Bowman, brother of the accused man, stated that his brother had said to him, "I want to die; I want to die, and I don't want you to do anything. I won't assist you in any way."

"As to doing anything in his defence, what did he do?" asked Mr. Hattin. "He did everything possible to hold up the defence, and stated that if possible he would try to present the appearance of sanity. The reason was that he feared an asylum."

Witness stated that in reply to requests for information that would help Bowman he said, "I want to die;

LORNE BOWMAN NOW AWAITS CONFINEMENT IN AN INSTITUTION

Jury Found Him Not Guilty Of Murder On Grounds Of Insanity - Remanded At Kitchener Jail Until Government Decides Upon Asylum Where He Will Be Kept - Arguments of Counsel

HARROWING CASE CONCLUDED

The last chapter in the tragedy, which horrified all the town and district on June the thirtieth, last, was written last Thursday afternoon when the jury brought in the verdict, which will confine Lorne Bowman to a provincial asylum for life. "Not guilty on the grounds of insanity," was the finding of the jury. Thereupon the presiding judge, Mr. Justice Wright turned to the prisoner who was standing in the dock. "The law requires," he said, "That you be kept in strict custody until the pleasure of the Lieutenant-Governor is known."

Bowman who has continually stated that he wished to die, changed color slightly, and a strange look of regret flitted across his face. Then, in a moment, he was again apathetic and listless figure whose interest in the whole matter had swiftly slipped away.

Counsels Speak

The verdict was brought in following addresses to the jury by counsel for both sides, and the charge by the judge. The defence Counsel, V. H. Hattin stressed the fact that there was no reasonable motive for the act of the prisoner, who loved his wife and child. He asked that the written confession be set aside as the fact of an insane man, who wished death and feared an asylum. He emphasized the fact that both Dr. Watson of Elmira and Dr. Fisher of London pronounced the accused insane, and that even Dr. English, the witness for the crown admitted some insanity, and believed the accused should have been in an asylum. Even Dr. English had admitted that there was possibility the prisoner did not know what he was doing. He also referred to the gruesome character of the deed as evidence of insanity, and he said that Bowman's father-in-law had brought the fatal hatchet from London, and not the prisoner.

"In conclusion," he said, "I think that the ends of justice will be served if this man is found not guilty owing to insanity and committed to the asylum. Are you satisfied that the ends of justice would be served if he were to hand by the hangman's rope? If this man had been committed to the asylum as the doctors had recommended and if he had committed the offence there, there would not have been a murder trial."

Crown's Argument

Mr. J. H. Sims, Crown Prosecutor, in reply admitted that the prisoner was not normal but doubted if the prisoner was so insane that he did not realize the nature and quality of the act, and that he was doing wrong. He thought the trouble was just melancholy depression. There was no insanity in the family. He stressed the fact that the prisoner was normal in his actions the night before the tragedy and even on the very morning he committed the deed. He declared that "an irresistible impulse" down not relieve any man from responsibility under the law. The Crown Prosecutor also thought it strange that the prisoner should have brought the hatchet over in readiness and have run away after the deed, if he were insane, and did not know what he was doing. He referred to the voluntary confession, and referred to jealousy and revenge being possible motives. He maintained that a man was sane until the contrary was proven.

Following the addresses of the counsel, the judge then summed up the case for the jury, who retired and after deliberating for two hours and a half gave their verdict of insanity.

12734 DR. W. J. FISCHER, M.A.

The recent death of Dr. W. J. Fischer, M.A., of Waterloo, Ontario, has bereft the medical profession of Ontario of not only an exemplary member, but a litterateur of exceptional promise. A graduate of Western University Medical School Class 1902, Dr. Fischer whilst a student published his "Tales by the Wayside". This was followed by five other volumes of poetry and fiction, all of distinct merit. He also contributed largely to various journals and newspapers. Dr. Fischer was a man of high and noble ideals; and impressed all with whom he came in contact by his many-sided character his keen powers of observation, his warm heartedness, his poetic temperament. He was also an accomplished musician. Although a comparatively young man, having scarcely rounded his fortieth year, Dr. Fischer possessed one of the best literary libraries in the province. His whole life was an inspiration, stimulating and ennobling to those who came in contract with him. K. L. G.

12738 Region loses a radio icon April 05, 2010 By Greg Mercer, Record staff

KITCHENER \emdash You may not have known Dan Fish, but you probably knew his voice.
If you tuned into local radio at all in the last 49 years, you probably heard him talking \emdash in your kitchen, in your car, anywhere the signals of CKKW, CFCA and CKWR would reach. He died this week at 75.

For decades, Fish \emdash known as Dan Fisher on air \emdash was as much a part of broadcasting in this region as transistor radios. He hosted cooking shows, buying and selling shows, morning shows, political talk shows, Kitchener Rangers hockey broadcasts, and much more.
As a program director, he hired and mentored many people still in the business today. In the final years of his career, he taught hundreds of students in the radio program at Conestoga College. "I can't imagine him doing anything else in his life. He was a natural," said Paul Scott, director of the radio program at Conestoga College, who was given his start in the business by Fish.

The son of an AM radio operator, Fish began in radio at CHOV in Pembroke in 1956. Back then, he went by the name Dan Trout, and learned the ropes broadcasting from fall fairs up and down the Ottawa Valley. By 1958, he and his wife Gwen moved to Fredericton, N.B., where Fish was the morning man for CFNB. He hosted a travelling country music radio show and a popular talent show that featured soldiers from nearby base Gagetown.

In 1961, Fish's voice became familiar to listeners in Waterloo Region, when he took a job with CKKW. He became known for his familiar, easy way of talking and was a genuine interviewer. Fish's talent was bringing radio "to the people," said former colleague Rych Mills, a producer at KOOL-FM. He took shows out of the studio and on the road, broadcasting from women's bowling leagues, country jamborees and charity bazaars.

"He'd rather talk to somebody than spin a record," said Mills, who once worked under Fish at CKKW. "And sometimes he'd get a lot of flak from his bosses for that." By 1994, Fish was teaching students at Conestoga, but he didn't leave commercial radio behind. As recently as last year, he was still writing and producing Christmas programs for CKWR. Fish never lost that natural warmth, say colleagues. "On the air and off the air, he was the same person. He didn't put on any false pretences. He truly loved life and he loved broadcasting," Scott said. "He loved entertaining and he loved informing people. He had an enormous influence on the people around him."

Fish remains a father figure and mentor for many people who learned under him. At Conestoga, he was "a huggy bear," a big man who was affectionate to students and faculty, said Professor Mike Thurnell. He was also organizer of something called the Lunch Bunch, an informal group of former broadcasters who met about once a month, he said. "He was a personality in the truest sense," Thurnell said. "They don't make people like that anymore."

Fish believed radio stations should be involved in their community, and worked to promote a long list of local charities, from Big Brothers and St. John's Soup Kitchen to House of Friendship and the United Way. His family said they've been moved to learn how much he influenced local radio. For them, he was always a lighthearted, "crazy grandpa" and a collector of gadgets, they said, but they didn't realize how much his coaching of other on-air personalities had meant to people.

"It's been uplifting hearing that," said his son Dave Fish, the youngest of four children. "A lot of people consider him a father figure. It wasn't just an on-air thing. That's who he was." A funeral is planned for 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Henry Walser Funeral Home. Visitations begin tonight at 7 p.m. and Wednesday starting at noon. gmercer@therecord.com

12743 When Charles Miller Fisher, MD, died on April 14, 2012, the field of neurology lost one of its 20th century giants. Fisher was born one of 9 children in 1913 in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. In 1938, he graduated from the University of Toronto Medical School, soon after marrying his life's love, Doris. In 1940, as war engulfed Europe, he volunteered for the Canadian Navy but was transferred on loan to the British Royal Navy in response to the United Kingdom's urgent call for more naval medical officers. In 1941, he was the ship doctor on an armed merchant cruiser called the Voltaire when it was attacked and crippled by a German vessel in the South Atlantic. As the Voltaire listed to 45°, the captain surrendered and all hands were ordered to abandon ship. Lifeboats could not be launched because of the angle of the list, so the survivors had to jump or slide into the (fortunately) warm waters, being plucked out of the ocean by the enemy 6 or more hours later. Fisher spent the next 3½ years as a physician in a German prisoner of war camp, where he taught himself German, principally to read whatever German medical literature his captors made available. Fisher was repatriated in September 1944 as one of the supervising doctors involved in an exchange of wounded prisoners of war.

When he resumed his medical career in Canada, his intention was to focus on diabetes and metabolic diseases. However, as part of a medical refresher course, he had a rotation at the Montreal Neurological Institute, where on morning bedside rounds he came to the attention of Wilder Penfield, MD, Montreal Neurological Institute's legendary chief. Penfield quickly recognized Fisher's inquiring mind and became his mentor. He arranged an acting-registrar (residency) position for Fisher at the institute (1948-1950) and subsequently encouraged Fisher to do a neuropathology fellowship with Raymond D. Adams, MD, at Boston City Hospital (1949-1950). At age 36 years, Fisher returned to Montreal to become the neuropathologist at the Montreal General Hospital. It was there that he made the observations that resulted in his groundbreaking report in 1951 that extracranial carotid disease was a fruitful source of cerebral stroke and that the ictus could be preceded by brief warning signs, which he named transient ischemic attacks. Furthermore, he anticipated that carotid-related stroke could be prevented with newly introduced anticoagulation and surgical therapies. This work was facilitated by 2 dedicated pathology assistants (dieners) who, under Fisher's guidance, broke tradition and actually removed the carotid arteries at autopsy, often retrieving them intact from the aorta to their intracranial bifurcation. Inspired by Fisher, these 2 dieners returned to high school and then went on to medical school. One became a university professor of surgery and president of the Royal College of Surgeons, the other a general practitioner. They could be considered the harbingers of the many fellows whom Fisher would later mentor.

In 1954, Adams was asked to develop a Neuromedical Service (the official name for almost 3 decades) at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). He invited Fisher to return to Boston to join him. This began an intensive collaboration that ultimately impacted the construct and culture of neurology, including the recognition of stroke disease as primarily a neurologic rather than internal medicine discipline. Fisher spent the next half century at MGH and Harvard University, where he created and led the first formal Stroke Service. Many of his Stroke Service trainees (fellows) became leaders in the stroke field throughout the world.

Fisher's teaching, care, and contributions were pan-neurological. When Adams formed the MGH Pediatric Neurology Service and became its chief, Fisher became the head of the MGH Adult Neurology Service. However, he is best known for his many seminal contributions to stroke, for example, the discovery not just of carotid stenosis but also of carotid dissection as a cause of stroke; the demonstration that atrial fibrillation was a frequent stroke substrate and that initial strokes owing to atrial fibrillation were often catastrophic; recognition of the clinical and pathologic features of thalamic and cerebellar hemorrhage; description of the major clinical and pathologic syndromes of lacunar infarction (pure motor hemiparesis, pure sensory stroke, ataxic hemiparesis, and dysarthria-clumsy hand); reporting that migrainous accompaniments were important causes of stroke-like events in the elderly; and formulation of the Fisher score for the severity (hence, risk for vasospasm) of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage based on computed tomographic evidence of the volume distribution of blood in the subarachnoid spaces.

He made numerous innovative contributions to general neurology as well, including description of the following syndromes and phenomena: Miller Fisher syndrome (descending Guillain-Barre); normal pressure hydrocephalus; transient global amnesia; one-and-a-half syndrome (ocular-pontine deficit); wrong-way eyes (thalamic hemorrhage); pontine ptosis; oval pupils; and rostral-caudal (brain) deterioration (in the comatose patient). Frequent collaborators in his stroke and general neurology contributions included Adams, Maurice Victor, E. P. (Peirson) Richardson, and Robert Ojemann. Salomon Hakim, a Colombian neurosurgeon, collaborated in the description of normal pressure hydrocephalus.

Even as he approached the age of 96 years, Fisher still published journal articles. He has received many honors and awards, the most singular of which are his induction into the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame; the creation of the annual C. Miller Fisher Award for excellence in stroke care/research by the New England Branch of the American Heart and Stroke Association; and at MGH, the establishment of the C. Miller Fisher Chair of Neurology, the creation of the CMF Annual Stroke Lecture, and the renaming of the Vascular Neurology Service as the CMF Service. In the weeks before his death, the 3-decade-old Greater Boston Stroke Society was renamed the C. Miller Fisher Society.

Fisher was a very large and imposing man and one easy to caricature. His rounds were very long, slow, and thorough, aimed at extracting every kernel of interest from every patient. His focus included attention to small but often critically relevant details of the clinical history or examination. He noted that meaningful retrieval of such details separates the expert from the novice. He was a collector of unusual patient signs and symptoms that were organized into folders titled, for example, "patients who wrote off the paper," "mumblers," "irascible patients," "topplers," and "pure sensory stroke." When sufficient instances of any one finding would begin to correlate with pathoanatomic, pathophysiologic, and/or epidemiologic substrates, he would prepare them for publication, for example, his report on 200 cases of pure sensory stroke.

Fisher was a dedicated teacher and mentor. He spent 5 or more hours each day with his stroke fellows. His method of teaching was Socratic. The fellows would see the stroke cases in depth, then meet with Fisher at dinner, after which, from 6 PM to 11 PM or later virtually daily, they would see the patients together. Fisher continually questioned each fellow about his observations and ideas. He would analyze each neurologic finding\emdash a visual field defect, an arterial retinal embolus, an ataxic arm, or a gait abnormality\emdash often for hours, studying and teaching how the nervous system worked. He was a dedicated reader and could often be found in the Harvard library studying and digesting original English and German reports. He emphasized that "we could not afford to redo the history of neurology every 20 years." That is, continually rediscovering what had been known but forgotten. He was always available for discussions, characteristically long and detailed, in which he and we would explore a topic. As a very effective role model, his forte was showing how to learn and explore a symptom, sign, phenomenon, or behavior by careful bedside and laboratory analysis and by thorough reading of the literature. His method is captured in a presentation given at his formal retirement titled "Fisher's rules," which was published in the Archives of Neurology (Figure1A, Figure1B). For the undersigned, he continued to be our mentor and oracle for the duration of his life. He was always available, if only by phone, which became all too frequent in the past few years. He submitted articles for publication until 1996. Until his very last days, he was cognitively intact, and he retained his knack of always knowing what question to ask that would clarify a clinical conundrum.

12755 CHICKEN POT PIE

Stew gently a nice chicken. Season with salt and pepper and thicken the gravy with a tablespoonful of flour, mixed smooth with a piece of butter, size of an egg. Have ready some biscuit dough cut in pieces an inch square; drop this into the gravy, having previously removed the chicken to a hot platter. Boil fifteen minutes. Lay on the platter with the chicken, pour over the gravy and serve.

STEAMED EGGS

Butter a tin plate and break in your eggs, set in a steamer, place over a kettle of boiling water and steam till the whites are cooked.If broken into buttered patty-pans they look nicer by keeping their form better. Or,still better, if broken into egg cups and steamed until done, they are very nice. Cooked in this way there is nothing of their flavor lost.

12763 SHANTZ, Winifred It is with great sadness that we announce that Winifred Shantz passed away on Saturday, February 11, 2012 in Kitchener, Ontario, in her 89th year. Winifred Fitch was born in London, England. She met Canadian Major Don McLaren during World War II and immigrated to Canada, marrying him in Kitchener after the war. Herself a potter, she became a vital part of the arts community in the Kitchener/Waterloo area. Don, retired Director of Recreation for the city of Kitchener, passed away in 1972. Her support for glass and ceramic artists culminated in the establishment of the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery, a national gallery of which she and her second husband Keith Shantz were founding supporters. In 1990, she became a partner with Aggie Beynon in the ownership of Harbinger Gallery, showcasing contemporary Canadian visual artists, sculptors, jewellery, and ceramics. Her wide-ranging patronage of the performing arts included support for the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, the Stratford Festival, the Grand River Baroque Festival, the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, Brush with Art and many others. Her support and caring for young artists was exemplified by the Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramics through the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery, and the Keith and Winifred Shantz Summer Internships granting opportunities for University of Waterloo Fine Arts students to work with established artists. As well, she supported students from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in internships abroad. In the Kitchener-Waterloo community she was a supporter of many community causes including both hospitals. Win's wisdom and enthusiasm for life will be very much missed by her family and the many colleagues and friends whose lives she touched. She brought to so many the kind of insight, critique, understanding and support that can turn dreams into lasting success, in the arts, in business, and in life. A celebration of the life of Win Shantz will be held at the Clay and Glass Gallery, 25 Caroline Street North, Waterloo, Ontario on Sunday, March 18th from 2 to 4 p.m. Friends and family are invited to gather together and share memories. Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery or the KW Symphony. Arrangements entrusted to The Erb & Good Family Funeral Home 171 King St. S., Waterloo www.erbgood.com
