12035 FREY, John David - Was born January 9, 1961 to Amsey and Ina Frey. He grew up on the family farm and attended Linwood P.S. and Elmira District S.S. After he left school, he worked in a variety of jobs, eventually moving to B.C. to work in reforestation. In 1998, after he was diagnosed with depression, he began treatment. He was finally able to overcome his drug and alcohol addictions through the help of counseling, anti-depressants and Narcotics Anonymous. He celebrated ten years alcohol and drug-free on Nov. 1, 2008. John felt the anti-depressants with their side effects prevented him from working full-time, so he stopped taking his medication. When he couldn't find full-time work, his depression got the best of him. He died on August 6, 2009. We are very sorry for such a tragic ending to John's life and regret that he could not find a compelling reason to live. Our hearts are consoled by the belief that he has finally found some measure of peace on the other side. John was predeceased by his sister, Wendy (1965) and his father, Amsey (2003). He is survived by his mother, Ina; his son, Alia Ozdemir; his sister, Nancy, her husband Bruce Yoder and children Jeremiah and Deborah; his brother, Kenton, his wife Teresa Brown and children Maxwell and Olivia; his brother, Cameron Kaufman-Frey, his wife Dawn and children Adam and Annika. Visitation will take place Sunday, August 23, 2009 from 6-8 p.m. at St. Jacobs Mennonite Church. A private burial will be held Monday morning and a memorial service will be held Monday afternoon at 2 p.m. at St. Jacobs Mennonite Church.

12041 Levi Frey was a Mennonite blacksmith who received special training in Cleveland, Ohio. For some time he did blacksmithing for construction workers in Northern Ontario, later operating a shop of his own in Hawkesville.

History remembers him not as a blacksmith but for his unique lifestyle as an Old Order Mennonite, a group that has remained very conservative in its association with the changing life of the twentieth Century.

He had the courage to frequently leave the closely-knit church society to increase his personal knowledge in a wider world, but he always returned to his home group where he became a highly esteemed layman who, because of his knowledge and wisdom, was consulted on many subjects by his fellow churchmen.

Frey had the distinction of being visited by the Queen's representative in Canada, Sir Archibald Nye, and Lady Nye, who were very much impressed by the knowledge and personality of this distinguished member of the Old Order Mennonites.1a

12049 Bauman. - Mary Ann (Frey) Bauman, wife of Emanuel Bauman, died Mar. 6, 1921, at her home near Floradale, Ont., aged 33 y. 1 m. 14 d. She underwent an operation, about two weeks previous to her death. Human hands did all they could do, to save her life, but God saw fit to take her home. She was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church, and was a kind and loving mother, with a cheery disposition. However we need not mourn, as those that have no hope, as she gave a bright evidence that she was waiting for Jesus to take her home. She leaves a sorrowing husband, and three children (Florence, Orvie, and Howard), also her parents and one sister. Funeral services were conducted at the Elmira Mennonite Church, by Bros. Abram Gingrich and Oliver Snider. Text, Phil. 1:21-23. Buried in adjoining cemetery.

"However painful it may be,
To know that she is gone,
The thought is sweet that we may see
Her in that Heavenly Home."1a

12079 Well-Known Farmer Meets Death

Lawrence Fried Pinned Under Tractor and is Drowned

Lawrence Fried was found dead beneath an overturned tractor in the ditch on the Blenheim-Wilmot townline about 2 miles south of New Dundee at two o'clock on Monday afternoon. Just how the accident occurred is not known. The accident occurred at a culvert in the road and it is believed in coming down hill he did not notice how close he was to the edge and the tractor overturned into the ditch pinning him underneath in about three feet of water. The doctors who examined the dead man said that he was uninjured but was in such a position that it was impossible for him to extricate himself, death being due to drowning.

Mr. Fried who lived about 1 ½ miles southeast of New Dundee, left his home about ten o'clock in the forenoon with his tractor to plough at another farm. Later passersby noticed the machine in the ditch by the roadside, but it was not until early in the afternoon, Mr. Fried not appearing, that is was thought he might be underneath and upon investigation the body was found submerged in three feet of water. No inquest was deemed necessary by Coroner Dr. Honsberger, of Kitchener, as it was evident the death was accidental.

The late Mr. Fried was a prominent farmer and a well-known horse and cattle breeder, showing at Toronto and London as well as at the fairs in this district. He was well known in New Hamburg. He was about 47 years of age and is survived by his widow and eight children, besides his father, John, Fried, now of Kitchener.

The late Mr. Fried had not been in the best of health lately but still able to be up and around until last Friday night when he took very ill, and when the doctor was summoned he pronounced it typhoid fever. He became delirious the same night and remained so intermittently until death came to his relief. He was married to Rachael Gehman about 31 years ago. To them were born eight children, all of whom survive: Ephriam, Mrs. Wilfred Wanner, Mrs. Melville Veitch, Ralph, Russel, Clayton, Cleo, and Ethel, at home; besides these he leaves to mourn their loss his aged parents, three sisters and one brother. He was a member of the Evangelical Church here and has been a prominent man in this community. He has been a successful exhibitor of cattle and horses at fall fairs for many years. The funeral was held at his late residence on Sunday afternoon, thence to the Evangelical Church for service, thence to the cemetery, and was largely attended.

12128 MICHAEL FRIES, SR. - Only a month after the death of his wife there passed away at his home here Michael Fries, Sr. The shock of his life partner's death and the pain of the parting was too much for his enfeebled body to withstand. The deceased was born near Heidelberg in 1889 (or possibly 1839, blurred). At the age of 22 he was married to Elizabeth Frey. They took up the duties of married life on a farm north of West Montrose, then mostly primeval forest. Here the deceased put in many a day's hard labor in clearing the forest and getting the land ready for the plough, while his wife looked after the housework and raised a large family of robust boys and girls. With industry they succeeded in building up a fine home for themselves. After about forty years of farm life, Mr. and Mrs. Fries came to spend the remaining years in quiet retirement in Elmira. They enjoyed good health until a few years ago when the infirmities of old age began to make themselves felt. The deceased is survived by a large family. They are Solomon of Saskatchewan, Veronica (Mrs. Henry Dobberthein of Iowa, Michael of Elmira, Margaret (Mrs. Wm. Dobberthein) of Elora, Daniel of Kitchener, Jacob of Elmira, John of Bollingbrook, Ont., Katie (Mrs. Plate) of Kitchener, Lydia (Mrs. Levi Snyder) of Woolwich.

GONE TO HIS REST
REV J. FROSCH OF ST. PAULS LUTH. CHURCH, OF ELMIRA, PASSES AWAY


St. Paul's Lutheran congregation is in mourning over the death of its beloved pastor. Rev. J. Frosch, who died at Fort Wayne, Ind., on Saturday afternoon, June 18th. After Mr. Weichel's return on Friday and the news he brought of Mr. Frosch's condition, many of the friends of the reverend gentleman took hope again that he might yet recover; to them the news of his death so soon after was a great shock, while even those who had little or no hope of recovery heard the news of his decease with profound sorrow. Mr Frosch was Pastor of St. Paul's for about 17 years, and labored with the greatest self denial, diligence and faithfulness among his people. He worked often when his health was such that many a man in like condition would have laid down the armor; and during his last illness he did not give up his pastoral work until, urged by his friends and forced by weakness, he had to give up. Deceased was one of that class of men whom you love the more the better you get acquainted with them. He was of a retiring disposition, not given to making much fuss, and was thus misjudged by some who mistook his reserve and timidity for pride and coldness. About four weeks ago he went to Mt. Clemens, Mich. to seek restoration of his health at the baths there. But it availed him nothing and he was taken to the home of his wife's parents at Fort Wayne where he was under the care of a noted specialist. In spite of all that could be done he got no better and passed to his rest on Saturday afternoon, June 18, being yet in the prime of life, only about 41 years old. "Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord, yea the spirit saith that they rest from their labors and their works do follow them."1a

The late John Fry was born near Berlin and with his parents moved while yet a mere child, to the township of Blenheim.

Miss Fulton, who had been ill for some time from hardening of the arteries, passed away just eleven days after the death of her sister, Margaret. They had lived together practically all their lives and in death were not long divided. Janet D., like her sister, was a woman of culture and broad views. Though more of a home body than her sister, her influence was ever on the side of the right, thus endearing her to a wide circle of staunch friends and admirers. A member of the Presbyterian Church, she attended all means of grace when health and opportunity permitted. The Misses Fulton moved in from the farm a few years ago but did not live long to enjoy their beautiful home on McDonald street. The funeral took place on Tuesday. The pallbearers were Messrs. John J. Hodgson, Henry Elliott, Alex Gray, W. Snyder, J.W. Hunt and A.J. Reid.

12182 CHURCH OF THE HOLY FAMILY

This parish was formed in 1858, being attended from St. Agatha by Rev. E. Funcken who purchased an old public school, erected a tower on it and changed the interior to suit an ecclesiastical building; this served as the place of worship for the ensuing 25 years. In 1881, Mr. Jos. Hartmann donated an acre of ground on Huron Street., about the centre of the town, and building operations for the present church were commenced and completed in 1883. The site was a magnificent one, the church standing elevated above every other building in the town and can easily be seen from any part of Hamburg and surrounding country. The church is 45 by l00, is beautifully frescoed, well furnished and a credit to its congregation. In 1892, one acre of ground was bought from Jacob A. Roth by John Buckel, Sr., for $200.00. The deed was registered to the Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation of the Diocese of Hamilton on September 9th, 1897. A cemetery was thereon laid out in plots of 15 x 15 feet. There are two main roads and avenues and the cemetery is entirely surrounded by maple trees. In 1907 an additional acre and a quarter to the cemetery was obtained. Much work has been done on it to bring it to its present fitting condition.The Sacred Heart Society has a large number of members, is in a very flourishing condition and has as officers:-Mrs. Carl Messner, President; Miss Susannah Hartmann, Secretary-Treasurer. The other Society is the C. M. B. A. of New Hamburg. President, J. A. Hartmann; Secretary, Alphonse Fischer; Treasurer, F. J. Hartmann. The Church Committee is composed of the following members: J. Monaghan, J. J. Berger, W. Weber,Brudcr, L. Arnold and J. Anderson. Rev. W. Vincent Kloepfer, C. R., whose residence is in Berlin, is the present pastor for the community.1a

12183 THE LATE VERY REV. LOUIS G.F.H. FUNCKEN, was born on the 5th Oct., 1833, at Wankcum, Prussia. He was ordained priest at Roermond, Holland, on the 15th of June, 1862. He graduated as Doctor of Divinity at the Roman University, Sapienza, on the 11th of June 1864. He emigrated to Canada the same year in which he graduated, arriving at St. Agatha, Ont., on the 1st of September 1864. Father Funcken was the founder of St. Jerome's College, Berlin an institution of learning for Roman Catholic youths, which was opened for the reception of pupils on the 10th of September, 1866. The Rev. Father Spetz has been president of this institution for two years, and was a professor for a number of years. Father Funcken assumed the pastorate of St. Mary's Church, Berlin in September, 1866, where he continued until his return to Holland. In 1888 he was appointed Provincial of the "Congregation of the Resurrection of Our Lord." he celebrated his silver jubilee of priesthood in 1887. Father Funcken returned to Roermond, Holland, where, January 30th, 1890, he passed away, comforted with the last sacraments of the Church.1a

____________________________

The Rev. Louis Funcken founded St. Jerome's College in 1865 in the small Waterloo County village of St. Agatha.

A native of Holland, he studied to become a druggist, but decided to change his occupation and chose the priesthood. He entered a seminary and obtained his Doctor of Divinity degree in 1864. He came to St. Agatha in the same year.

St. Jerome's was moved in 1866 to Berlin where the larger population seemed to promise faster progress. Father Funcken guided the College through years of great struggle and from 1871 to 1878 was the only priest at the institution. To ease its financial burdens he went on a six month lecture tour of the northern United States, raising a very substantial sum. He overcame great difficulties that would have intimidated a lesser man.

In later life, for health reasons, Father Funcken returned to Holland where he died.2a

Father Louis Funcken was a founder of the Congregation of the Resurrection and also the founder of St. Jerome's College. From 1866 to 1890, he was pastor of the adjoining parish of St. Mary's. In 1890, the alumni association of St. Jerome's College began raising funds for a commemorative statue of Father Funcken. The model for the young boy in the sculpture was Reinhold Lang, a local resident. Since completion in 1907, the sculpture has moved three times; first located in a garden on the college grounds, it was moved to another area of the college property, from there to St. Mary's Church in 1990, and finally to its present site in 1991.2a

12205 Former fire chief, treasurer, gave and gave for Wellesley community

Ronald Futher of Wellesley

Born: Nov. 11, 1934 in Baden

Died: Feb. 23, 2016 of cancer

The village of Wellesley's mayor, Joe Nowak, summed up Ron Futher in one sentence: "he was a prince of a man. I just loved that guy."

It seemed a lot of people felt similarly about Ron, former president of Futher Bros. Funeral Home and the village's retired fire chief. He was a guy who volunteered for just about everything: Lions Club, Board of Trade, cemetery committee and he co-founded a restoration project for Wellesley's vintage fire truck. He also served as the first treasurer when the village became incorporated in 1961. In 2010 he received the Wellesley Citizen of the Year award.

"He had his hands in everything," said son, David Futher. "He was very outgoing."

Ron reflected the village's personality perfectly. Wellesley has long prided itself on being a friendly sort of place, where a new neighbour would often be greeted with a fresh basket of baked goods. This closeness would be critical to Ron after his first wife, Mary Jane Lantz died in 1968, shortly after the birth of their third child.

As a young father of three small children including a baby, Ron relied heavily on help from family, particularly his widowed mother and his brothers, Jerome and Bill along with their wives. David remembers staying on weekends with the uncles and aunts, "to give Dad a bit of a break."

Weekdays the family was together, cared for with outside help from a Mennonite woman as well as a neighbour who became like a second mom to the kids.

"Everyone was very supportive of my dad," said David.

Daughter Mary Futher added tearfully, "He was the most special father, he was an inspiration for all his children. I don't know how we can ever live up to that standard."

In 1972 Ron married Carol Ann Kloepfer, a registered nurse who took on this little family with much love.

"She was always mom, never step-mom," said David. Carol Ann died in September 2015.

Ron, like his two brothers, had grown up in his father's funeral home and following Milton Futher's death in 1961 the sons took over. The following year they changed the business name to Futher Bros. Ltd. Funeral Service and Furniture. In 1967, Jerome left the company after purchasing the Schreiter-Sandrock home in Kitchener......

12206 MRS. ALEX FISHER To recall the life of someone whom we have known out of the dim shades of the memory into the light of the present consciousness is like invoking a rich benediction upon the soul. It is like the smell of violets in the early spring, or of heliotrope and fragrant roses in the summer, or of hyacinths in midwinter. It is exceedingly refreshing and invigorating. It carries into our present experience a fresh inspiration and a new girding with power, and a higher motive to live more worthily. So we feel as we recall the beautiful and quiet career of Mrs. Fisher. She was one of those charming personalities who carry with them a rich glow of kind, loving feeling, and a motherly warmness of heart and a healthy, heartsome, decisive religiousness of spirit. She was religious with the consent of her whole being, and of large intelligence in the ways of God. A great reader of religious books. Her heart was not walled in, but overflowed with generous and tender affection. It was an unspeakable pleasure to visit her, and hear her narrate her experiences; and that is a precious coin, always current among the godly. She took great delight in gospel truth, and was a beautiful exponent of it in her own mild, sweet nature, and in the lovely and attractive life she lived. She seemed to dwell in the secret place of the Most High, and to abide under the shadow of the Almighty. We cannot forget her sweet Christian contentment, her bright, cheery countenance, enlivened by thought and made beautiful by true piety, her dignified repose of character, that seemed always sufficient for itself, Whatever earthly fountains might supply her with, it was evident that she drew most from those above. Whatever the nether springs afforded, her main reliance was upon the upper springs; and these never run dry. She spent her last years with Mrs. Robertson in Woodstock, where I had the happiness of calling on her frequently, and she was still the same that she had been before, engaged in reading some spiritual book that fed her soul with heavenly manna, conversing with delight upon the great themes of the higher Christian life, seeking zealously greater conformity to Christ, and spending the time in prayer and pious meditation. She loved God's house, and never failed to appear there when she could. And when failing strength hindered her from going there, she often mourned the loss she deeply felt. The house of God meant much to her, was much to her, as it is to all who are truly spiritual. The Bible, which holds the chief place there, held the chief place in her regard. She loved other good books, but this best of all. She had stored her memory with it. One day near the end, when sight had failed and she could no longer see to read, her daughter, Mrs. Alfred Taylor, called and asked, "What are you doing this morning, mother?" "Oh," she said, "I am going through Nehemiah." She was reading it from the tablet of her memory where it was in scribed long before. The Lord, in his love, satisfied all her longings and hungerings after better things, as he said to her, "Come up higher," and the lovely, saintly soul entered into the presence of the King to see Him and be like Him, and to crown Him Lord of all.

12223 Police identify body of man, 50, found in Woolwich field last year

WATERLOO REGION - Police have identified the human remains found in a Woolwich field last year. The bones, discovered in February 2010 in a field adjacent to Victoria Street North and Greenhouse Road, are those of 50-year-old James Philip Zimmerlee Gabriel. Gabriel had no fixed address, but was known to stay in downtown shelters, Waterloo Regional Police said. He spent much of the last years of his life homeless. Gabriel had not been reported missing, a factor which complicated the identification process, said police spokesperson, Olaf Heinzel.1a

12225 LIFETIMES: Winterbourne artist captured his life, family and local history

Robert (Bob) Gaede of Winterbourne, born: May 31, 1926, in Conestogo, died: Oct. 7, 2017, of multiple myeloma


Artist Bob Gaede used his art to capture precious moments from his long life and the history of his beloved Conestogo and Winterbourne. There are at least 25 binders filled with stories, sketches, old photographs, all local history catalogued with such incredible detail that each binder looks like the work of an experienced archivist.

In his art, much of it architectural, Bob etched and painted old homes, churches, mills and blacksmith shops but he also painted expressive landscapes, some of them light and airy watercolours, others bold and thickly layered oils.

"He always had different phases he'd go through," said daughter, Jennifer Snider. "He was interested in history and landmarks. He had a different way of looking at things."

Bob was one of only two children born in Canada to a Mennonite family that had fled persecution in Russia at the turn of the last century. His five other siblings were all born in Russia......

When the Gaede family first arrived from Russia, they ended up living in a converted blacksmith shop in Conestogo for a time. The shop is now a B&B and likely it was far less luxurious in the early 1920s.

From the time he was a kid, Bob showed artistic talent and it was his elementary school teacher who suggested he enter a competition, which he easily won. That was the spark, the impetus that would became his foundation. No matter what else he was doing, art was always more important.

Bob graduated from the Ontario College of Art and though he would never make a full-time living as an artist, he was nevertheless successful, selling several works as well as accepting commissions, including a lion sculpture and even advertising signs.

Bob's career aspirations took a slight deviation after he met Audrey Burnett when they played on opposing teams at baseball games, Winterbourne vs. Conestogo. They married in 1951, had three children: Deb, Jennifer and Rod, starting their married life living with family and from there, they just kept moving, at least seven places all around Winterbourne until Audrey finally purchased an empty lot for $100......

Deb said their father was still working in his studio up until a few months before he died.

"Dad's passion was for his art," said Jennifer. "He'd work in the factory during the day, come home and do work around the house then he spent his time doing art."

12232 COURTLAND R. GAILFUS, state's attorney and United States commissioner at Rolla, has won for himself an enviable position among the business and professional men of North Dakota. He stands in the front ranks of the Rolette county bar and is well known throughout the state.

Mr. Gailfus is a native of Ontario, Canada, born October 28. 1866. He was the youngest of the three children born to B. and Elizabeth (Winkler) Gailfus. When he was a small boy he lost his father by death, and his mother removed to Manitoba in 1879, and in the spring of 1885 the family settled in Towner county, Dakota. As soon as our subject reached the age of maturity he began to take up government land. He secured three claims, a pre-emption, a tree claim and a homestead claim. He made his residence upon his homestead in 1890 and about this time began teaching school, having secured a fair education by private study. He taught during the summers and attended the university at Grand Forks during the winter months. He later entered the University of Minnesota and took up the study of the law. In 1893 he went to Chicago and took a course in the Kent College of Law, at the same time working in the office of W. B. Keef. He graduated with the class of from that institution and was admitted to the Illinois bar June 26, 1895. In the autumn of that year he came to Rolla and engaged in wheat buying. He was admitted to the bar of North Dakota October 7, 1895, and began the practice of his profession. He was elected state's attorney that same fall and still holds that office. On July 2, 1897, he was appointed United States commissioner at Rolla, which office he also holds at the present time. He entered the legal field against competition experienced and well established, but made his way rapidly to the front and has maintained his position. He is also part owner of fourteen hundred and forty acres of land in Towner and Rolette counties, his partner being Guido Widmeyer. This vast acreage is devoted exclusively to wheat raising.

Mr. Gailfus was married, in 1896, to Miss Ella May Paupst, and to this union three children have been born, named in the order of their birth as follows : Lorna, Manila and one infant unnamed. Mr. Gailfus is a Republican in his political faith and has taken an active part in the public affairs of his county and state. He is a member in good standing of the A. O. U. W. and the M. W. A. He is a worthy citizen and valued member of the community.

12233 HUGO GAILFUS, PIONEER OF COMMUNITY, ACTIVE AT 92

There were some hardy men in the Hansboro community in the pioneer period. One of these was Hugo Gailfus, who at 92 is still "quite a man". When a representative of the 50th Anniversary Committed called on Mr. Gailfus a few days ago at his farm home two miles south and six miles west of Hansboro, he found him sawing wood with a one-man crosscut saw.

Reminiscing for the benefit of the Committee member, who was seeking information for this article, the nonagenarian recalled that in 1880 he migrated with his mother to Manitoba to Ontario. He was born at Ayton, Ontario, March 24, 1863. They landed at Emerson, Manitoba and walked, driving cattle ahead of them to Clearwater, Manitoba to the new location with oxen and sled part of the way and with a wagon drawn by oxen the last part of the trip.

In 1890 Mr. Gailfus went to Gretna, Manitoba where he resided with a relative until 1896. He then returned to North Dakota and homesteaded his present farm.

Mr. Gailfus married Lilah Bower in 1901. They were the parents of a son who did not survive. His wife died in 1902 and in 1904 he married Mary Hilgardner. By this marriage there are six surviving children: Mrs. James Bush (Ruth), International Falls, Minnesota; Mrs. Nestor Juntunen (Vivian), rural Rolla; Myron Gailfus, Rolla; Olivia Gailfus, at home; Mrs. Kathleen Mader, Portland, Oregon and Mrs. Melvin Gessner (Dulcie), Walkerton, Indiana. Mr. Gailfus' second wife died a number of years ago.

His closest neighbor in the early days was John Cain, who lived about two miles to the west. He also mentioned Mr. Cowan, referred to in other articles in this booklet and Garet Locklin, also mentioned in another pioneer days story.

Mr. Gailfus recalled that in the early years settlers broke up four or five acre patches with oxen. His first grain crop totaled only 40 bushels of wheat and he had to take it to a neighbor to get it threshed. He first hauled his grain to Churchs Ferry and made one trip to Willow City, before the Great Northern line to St. John was built.

The pioneer took an active part in the affairs of the Picton community until recent years, serving on township and school boards, and, in spite of his age (he was then over 80) acted as chairman of war bond drives.1a

HUGO GAILFUS FAMILY


Hugo Gailfus, pioneer of the Picton community, migrated to Clearwater, Manitoba, in 1880 from Ayton, Ontario, where he was born on March 24, 1863, at the age of 17 years with his mother. They landed at Emerson, Manitoba, and walked, driving cattle ahead of them to Clearwater to the new location with oxen and sled part of the way and with a wagon drawn by oxen the last part of the trip.

In 1883, Hugo squatted on land in Fairview Township, which wasn't surveyed at that time. Filed on preemption made final proof and moved to Picton Township. In 1901, he was united in marriage to Lillah Bowers, who died the following year at childbirth of a son, Clarence Eugene. In 1904, he married Mary Hilgartner of Ayton, Ontario, Canada. She died on January 25, 1943. To this union, six children were born: Ruth Bush, International Falls, Minn.; Vivian Juntunen, Rolla; Dulcie Gessner, Wausaukee, Wis.; Myron Gailfus, Rolla; Olivia Gailfus, Rolla; and Kathleen Mader, Salter Path, N.D. Olivia lives in the farm home of nephew Larry Gailfus.

Hugo was a Towner County Commissioner for a time and was Picton school treasurer for many years. He was also Grand Marshal at Rolla's 75th Celebration at the age of 100 years.

His first summer, he sowed some grain on a small tract they had broken up and got 40 bushels of wheat. That same summer, they also built a log shack on his mother's claim, which had cost them $8.00.

Devils Lake was the nearest railroad point. Hugo also hauled grain to Willow City, a round trip that took three days by oxen. He made trips to Devils Lake each fall to buy supplies for the year. This trip took two days to go, one to load two days to come back. He also hauled grain to Churchs Ferry. Hugo's first trip was in 1883, squatted on land which wasn't surveyed then, so he, his brother and one of the Widmeyer boys plowed a furrow around the land they wanted. They went back to Clearwater, Ontario, for the winter and returned the next spring with three yoke of oxen. They intended to reach their destination in three days, a distance of 35 miles; but because of road conditions, they were forced to camp on the prairie overnight, which was about where the Picton School now stands. They reached their dug-out cabin the next day.

Hugo's first house was a shack with a sod roof, which leaked when it rained. The present house, which still stands, was built in 1906. It has been in the family all these years. Hugo Gailfus died on Dec. 14, 1964, at the age of 101 years.2a

12235 It was in the fall of 1847 that David Foote and John Cattanach took the contract of building the first Irvine bridge at Elora. One, and perhaps the best mechanic in the settlement, wrote out an estimate, intending to tender for the job of building the bridge, but took a little time to think it over before committing himself. During the night he could not sleep for thinking of it. He had carefully figured on the work of preparing the material for the bridge, but how would he put it to its place after the material was all ready? In the morning he burned his estimate, and because he had a large family of young children and could not afford to run such risks of losing, decided to have nothing to do with it. But that was not the way with the contractors.

During the winter of 1847-8 they commenced operations by searching for a number of tall rock elm trees. These were felled, hewn square and drawn to the bank of the river ready to be put in place. Then they had to face the problem which had been foreseen by the other, and older mechanic. How could the first heavy timbers be put across the ravine which is here about 105 feet in width, or 120 feet between supports of bridge, and 70 feet in depth? For a time the contractors were at a loss to know how they should proceed, but a sailor helped them out of their difficulty.

Jamie Gairns
was at that time working as a baker in the village. He had been a sailor, and at his suggestion the contractors found several others who had some experience as sailors who could assist him. Jamie Gairns was let over the steep bank with a rope and in the face of the rock he cut notches. Into these the ends of long timbers were placed which were to form braces for the support of the main timbers, the outer ends being temporarily held in position by guy ropes. Pulleys, with ropes, were attached to the tops of high trees growing close to the ravine, one of the long timbers was moved forward endwise over the chasm as far as possible without overbalancing, and the back end was weighted down to keep it from upsetting. These operations were repeated at each of the four corners of the bridge, there then being the ends of four long timbers projecting over the river, but not meeting in the centre. Having succeeded so far, another heavy timber was slid lengthways along the top of those already in place on either side of the bridge, in this way bridging over the space between the projecting ends. When these were bolted to their places the main portion of the first cantilever bridge in America was completed; and a good bridge it was, for it lasted fifteen years without any expense for repairs and was only replaced when the timbers were considered unsafe.

When they had paid those who worked for them and had settled their board bill at William Smith's tavern, which before him had been kept by George Gray and Martin Martin, the two partners found that out of their four hundred dollars they only had twenty dollars between them in return for all their difficult and dangerous work. In those days an event of such public importance as the opening of Irvine bridge could not be allowed to pass without some fitting celebration to commemorate it, so they negotiated with their landlord, Mr. Smith, who for and in consideration of the twenty dollars by him received did that night provide for all their friends a ball and dinner that was long remembered in Elora.

12254 Woman charged in connection with death of 73-year-old in downtown Kitchener

KITCHENER \emdash A 73-year-old Kitchener man is dead and a 19-year-old woman faces a charge of second-degree murder in connection with his death.

Bernard Joseph Gallant was known as Pops to many in the downtown where he lived.

Waterloo Regional Police were called to his apartment above a convenience store on King Street West near City Hall at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday after a report of an injured man.

Police say Gallant was pronounced dead at the scene.

Megan Birtch appeared in a Kitchener courtroom Friday afternoon, dressed in a blue pyjama pants and a blue Aeropostale hoodie.

Birtch softly said, "Yes," when asked by the justice of the peace if she was aware of the murder charge and understood the proceedings. Her parents were in the court.

There is a publication ban on details of the case....

Wendy Uebele of Kitchener was a good friend of Gallant and sat in court as the crown prosecutor read names of people Birtch can not have any contact with.

"My heart breaks for everyone involved here," she said after the court appearance. "Pops no longer has a family, a life."

Uebele described Gallant as a genuine person who helped others who needed it. He had been homeless in the past but had turned his life around, she said....

"He had his problems in life. He looked at life as everything was a gift," she said.

"I adored Pops," said Uebele, who was overcome with emotion when she spoke about him. "He would be the first person to help you."

Uebele said Gallant helped Birtch, who didn't have a place to stay. Uebele said the pair became friends and had a relationship.

"He took care of her," said Uebele, who last saw Gallant on Oct. 14. She had met Birtch a few times.

Uebele said the pair cared for each other and gave one another gifts.

"There was mutual respect for each other," she said.

Uebele said Gallant had recently reconnected with his son who was visiting from the United Kingdom during the summer. Gallant also has a daughter who lives in Halifax.

Uebele said he was estranged from his children for years and was excited about having a relationship with them....

12257 Cambridge Citadel Corps

According to the Dumfries Reformer of March 20, 1884, the Salvation Army arrived in Galt on Friday, March 14, 1884 and conducted meetings in the town that evening and on the following two days, the 15th and 16th as well. Handbills announcing the arrival of the Army had been circulated on March 10, 1884.

The Galt Corps was the 29th Salvation Army Corps established in Canada. Early meetings were held in the upstairs of the old fire hall on Water Street South and in the Temperance Hall which was located above John Sloan's grocery store on Water Street South, not far from the Main Street corner. Several years later property was acquired on Mill Street (later Ainslie Street South) and a two storey building was erected. This building was to serve the Galt Corps until 1950.

Land was purchased on Shade Street near Main Street (12 Shade Street) in October 1946 for a new Citadel. It was not until 1949, however, that work was begun. The cornerstone laying ceremony was conducted on Saturday, November 26, 1949 by Commissioner Charles Baugh. On June 3, 1950 a final service was held in the old hall on Ainslie Street, after which the Galt Corps marched to the new Citadel for the key turning ceremony. By the late 1970s additional space was again a necessity; a decision was made to enlarge the Shade Street Citadel rather than move to a larger property away from the centre of the city. The sod turning ceremony for the new Citadel which was to be attached to the north side of the older building was held on November 30, 1981. The last services held in that building were on Sunday September 5, 1982; services on the next three Sundays were held in the Young Peoples' Hall. The official opening and dedication of the new church was conducted by Commissioner Arthur Pitcher, Territorial Commander for Canada and Bermuda, on Saturday, October 2, 1982; the first services were held the next day, Sunday, October 3, 1982. The old church was converted into a new Young Peoples' Hall, used for services and meetings, with a large, efficient kitchen adjacent to it.

The first Commanding Officer in Galt was Captain Fred Galletley who was affectionately referred to as "Lightning Fred." Other early officers (1884-1885) were Captains James Ludgate, George Fisher and Mary Powell. Of interest: in August 1885, Doon was considered an Outpost of Galt. In 1888 the Galt Corps was seeking followers in Preston.1a

12258 Queen's Square cannon has storied history

Waterloo Region Record By rych mills

Remembrance Day is still in the air - as it should be 365 days a year - and the words and pictures from yesterday's ceremonies will hopefully linger in our memories. Today, Flash from the Past stretches Canadian remembrance to a war with which has no actual Canadian connection. Cambridge/Galt's Russian cannon in Queen's Square last saw military action in the 1853-1856 Crimean War. ....

Eight years after the end of the Crimean War, Galt council received a letter from the 4th Viscount Monck, Governor-General of British North America, saying that one of the guns captured from the Russians was being presented to the Town of Galt. When it arrived on December 2, 1864 via the Great Western Railway it was a mean-looking thing: the six-inch mouth, after being stuffed with seven pounds of gunpowder, could propel a 24-pound cannonball a couple thousand yards. Upon arrival in Galt, the cannon was immediately placed in Queen's Square on the west side of the Grand River. Its first call to action came on May 24, 1866 to celebrate Queen Victoria's 47th birthday. The cannon was hauled north a half mile to the top of the hill beside current-day Dickson Park.

Firing a 21-round Royal Salute at noon was to have been the high point of the Victoria Day events. An experienced soldier, although having no artillery experience, William Boge, volunteered to oversee the firing. Two other men, James Armstrong and David Galletly, offered to help. Without going into details, only one of those three was destined to survive the day's events. The first two or three rounds went off as planned, thrilling the thousands watching. Jim Quantrell's essay goes into the gory details of the next attempted firing. Suffice to say that during the funerals that evening, parts of two men were buried at the old St. Andrew's cemetery. The remaining Victoria Day celebrations were cancelled...

_____________________

According to a contemporary account of Victoria Day, May 24, 1866

"dawned must auspiciously. The weather was delightful and everything betokened a day of amusement such as Galt never before witnessed". The Town bells began pealing at 6:00 a.m. and soon people were gathering for the day's activities. Quoits began at 9:00 a.m. and the boat and horse races went off well.

As noon approached final preparations were made for the firing of the cannon which had been moved from Queen's Square to the Cricket Ground "near the face of the hill overlooking the dam". The firing of the cannon had been delegated by the Gun Committee to Mr. William Boge who had served for several years as an infantry soldier in the British Army. He lacked direct experience in the use of field artillery but felt himself to be fully acquainted with artillery practice and had convinced the authorities that he had sufficient knowledge to manage to the cannon properly.

Mr. Boge was assisted by Mr. James Armstrong, who attended to the ramming of the muzzle loading the gun, and by Mr. David Galletly who was working the vent of the gun. Three rounds had been safely fired when the powder for the fourth round was placed in the muzzle. Next came the wadding, which consisted of sod, with Mr. Boge and Mr. Armstrong ramming it home. Suddenly and unexpectedly a fearful roar rent the holiday air as the powder exploded prematurely. Perhaps the report of the contemporary press best expresses the shock and horror which descended upon the spectators as the smoke cleared. "The body of Boge had been driven about seven yards to the front and a little to the right. Armstrong's body was blown about the same distance to the left side close up to the fence. Both were rightfully disfigured, The upper portions of the bodies were entirely denuded of clothing and blackened an charred almost out of human resemblance. From Mr. Boge's body one arm had been blown off at the elbow and the other hand was missing. Armstrong's right arm was torn out at the shoulder blade and the left hand was also gone".

Mr. Galletly who had been attending to his duties at the vent when the accident occurred had his thumb badly lacerated and his hand burned. The only other injuries were to two boys who had been watching the firing of the gun. One unnamed boy suffered a slightly scratched cheek from the flying splinter. Another boy, John Lapraik, 7 years of age, received an ugly cut on the cheek when he was struck by a small piece of ramrod. His wound was speedily treated and soon healed.

Immediately following the accident the bodies of Mr. Armstrong and Mr. Boge were taken to the old school house on Dickson Street where an inquest was held at the direction of coroner, Dr. Phillips. Several witnesses were called, including David Galletly but none were able to give a satisfactory explanation of the direct cause of the premature firing of the gun. It was speculated however, that the firing was too rapid and that the cannon muzzle had not been adequately sponged after the third round was fired. It was though that burning embers remained in the cannon and had ignited the powder charge too soon. The jury ruled "that said William Boge and James Armstrong came to their deaths through accident caused by inexperience of the parties to whom the firing of the 24 pound gun was entrusted."

The games that had been scheduled for the afternoon were canceled as the Town's joy turned to sorrow and Galt prepared to bury its two sons. The coroner ordered that the bodies by buried without undue delay so the funeral was held at 8:00 p.m. that same evening at the old School House. Both deceased men had been members of the Galt Fire Brigade which turned out in force to honour their fallen comrades. The bodies were placed on Fire Engine No. 1 and, after a short service conducted by the Rev. Mr. Campbell, were taken for burial to St. Andrew's Cemetery.

William Boge was 27 years old when he was killed, a native of Roxboroughshire, Scotland. He and his wife had immigrated to Canada two years previously and for some time he had worked for Turnbull and Deans, the predecessor of Charles Turnbull Co. Ltd. Mrs. Boge was a well known local vocalist and a women of frail health. She was in the crowd watching the cannon and witnessed the accident. The shock was such that she fainted "and it was only by the most unremitting attention that she was brought out of the heavy swoons that rapidly succeeded one another". She was taken home and remained in serious condition. For some time it was feared that she might not survive but eventually she came around and "strong hopes" were held for her full recovery.

James Armstrong had been born in Havick in Scotland and was about 32 years of age. He was not married, had lived in Canada for about nine years and was employed as a wool sorter in the Robinson and Howell Woollen Mill. Both men were described as "steady and industrious and much respected by their acquaintances."

12267 The C. Turnbull Co., Ltd.

Of the many manufacturing enterprises that go to make the Town of Galt famous abroad as a manufacturing centre few, if any, have contributed in so large a degree as the one above mentioned. The product of the company consists of lambs' wool underclothing, hosiery, knitting yarns, etc. and one would have to search the Dominion through to find a larger or more complete establishment of its kind, or one better fitted with the latest and most improved machinery for turning out first-class goods in their line. The commodious buildings occupied by this firm are situated on North Water Street and West Main Street, together covering a large tract of ground space.

12270 Charles Roos, Boots and Shoes, Main Street - Situated in the centre of commercial activity on the principal thoroughfare of trade in Galt, and carrying one of the most complete stocks of boots and shoes in the town, the house of Charles Roos stands prominent as one of the chief wholesale and retail establishments. Established in Preston in 1845, the business was removed to Galt 15 years ago, where greater scope was afforded for the increased facilities of the house. It has had a long, honorable and prosperous career, until to day it has grown in commercial importance, and occupies a position well to the front among the best houses in this section of the country. The premises occupied are commodious and well adapted to the business. They are 22x140 feet in dimensions and three stories in height, which are stored with a large and complete stock of goods, embracing ladies', misses', gentlemen's, boys' and youths' boots and shoes, and rubbers of all kinds, purchased direct from the principal manufacturers. In addition to dealing in the above goods, Mr. Roos makes a specialty of boots and shoes to order, and he is enabled in this respect to turn out as handsome, well-fitting and durable goods as can be produced. Mr. Roos gives employment to thirteen assistants and workmen, who are thoroughly competent and skillful. The business extends throughout the town and country. Mr. Roos is a native of Alsace, and came to this country when only 3 years old. While in Preston, he was a member of the Town Council. He is a gentleman highly esteemed in the community, and an upright, honorable business man.1a

12273 Galt Foundry and Machine Works

This firm is conducted under the name of Cowan & Co. the members of the firm are William Cowan and Arthur B. Cowan. The business is an old one, having been established in 1842, the present proprietors taking possession in 1871. They have added largely to the plant, which greatly increases their facilities for carrying on business, and ever since the phenomenal growth of business keeps further taxing their resources. The firm is popularly known as iron workers and manufacturers of the most improved woodworking machinery, Harris Corliss and Slide Valve engines, boilers and sole manufacturers in Canada of the celebrated Austin patent feed water heater, lime, mud and oil extractor, and condensor, combined heaters, etc.
The main factory and buildings are the property of the company, and are substantially built structures of stone, two stories high and occupying an entire block of frontage on North Water Street. The working force consists of over one hundred hands, the greater portion of whom are skilled mechanics, in receipt of good wages, as may be judged from the pay roll of the firm, aggregating over forty thousand dollars annually. This large sum distributed, as it is, among the merchants means a great impetus to local trade, so it can easily be understood that the firm of factors in the prosperity of Galt. The trade of the firm extends not only over the whole of the Dominion of Canada, but their products find their way to many foreign countries, and while this is, of course, a source of profit to the firm, it also demonstrates conclusively that Canadian manufacturers are not inferior to any, and are fully capable of taking a front rank in the markets of the world.
Some idea may be formed by outsiders of the immensity of the operations of this firm, when we state that its yearly output is valued at one hundred and forty thousand dollars. James Cowan, Sr., formerly the senior partner of the firm, is a native of Scotland, but who is a pioneer of Galt, becoming an active and worthy citizen in 1834. Ever since, until old age unfitted him for life's activities, though even in his advanced years, still he manifests an interest in Galt. The other members of the firm are not only Canadian but natives of the town, of which they have done much to build up and develop, and they have ever been foremost in the ranks of progressive citizens1a

12274 Galt Post Office
Thomas Cowan, Esq.

Galt's respected postmaster is a typical Canadian, first opening his eyes to the light of day at "Clochmohr," still the family residence, near Galt; and in his earlier years he acquired a thorough knowledge of farming, at the same time acquiring a good public education, which was subsequently supplemented by a course of study in a commercial college. While yet a young man he abandoned the farm and became a successful commercial traveller for the firm of Messrs. Lutz & Co., manufacturers of stoves and implements. Being a lover of home and its comforts, the hard tack of the road was sometimes more than he contracted for, and he sometimes felt like what is expressed in "As you like it."

"When I was at home, I was in a better place;
But Travellers must be content."


His extensive travelling helped him, as a quick observer, to see the requirements of the people. This acquired knowledge in after life served him a good purpose. In 1874 Mr. Cowan became connected in business with Mr. Cameron, under the firm name of Cowan & Cameron, acquiring the business of his old employers, giving the name of the new firm, The Galt Foundry and Machine Works, which under the skill and management as senior partner the firm enjoyed uninterrupted prosperity.

As a public man, few have enjoyed greater esteem than Thomas Cowan. And now in his declining years he enjoys the quiet life of postmaster of Galt, his native town and is deserving of the emoluments.1a

12283 The Goldie & McCulloch Co., Limited

There is no better known manufacturing establishment in the Dominion than that of the Goldie & McCulloch Co, Limited, of Galt. This business was originally established by Messrs. James Crombie & Co. in 1844, who were succeeded in 1859 by Messrs. Goldie & McCulloch. In 1891 a joint stock company with a capital stock of $700,000 was organized, the officers of the company being: Hugh McCulloch Sr., President; John Goldie, Manager; and Hugh McCulloch, Jr., Secretary-Treasurer. The buildings and plant of this extensive concern cover four and a half acres, and from three to four hundred men (according to requirements) are employed in the various departments of the works, whose earnings (paid every two weeks) mostly find their way into the coffers of the different traders of the town, adding not a little to the well-known general stability of the merchants of Galt. The general lines of machinery manufactured by The Goldie & McCulloch Co. are summarized thus: The Wheelock improved automatic slow speed engine and "Ideal" high speed engine, which they claim are unsurpassed by any other steam engines in use; Steam engines of various styles, adapted for every class of work; boilers and all modern appliances in connection therewith; wood-working machinery; flour, oatmeal and buckwheat machinery; wool machinery; saw-mill, shingle and stave machinery; turbine water wheels, all of the latest designs; fire-proof safes, bankers' safes, vault doors, etc., of every size. Circulars and particulars furnished on application.

The gentlemen who own and control this extensive establishment are personally so well known throughout the Dominion that little need to be said here respecting them. We may state, however, that Mr. Hugh McCulloch, and the late Mr. John Goldie, were both leading employees of Messrs. Crombie & Co., but Mr. McCulloch was the first to reach Galt in 1850. Since they assumed control of the business in 1859 their record has been one of continued success and progress, the result of their ability, energy and intelligent application to business, in conjunction with a fortunate combination of facilities adapted to specific fields of action. Nor have they given their attention wholly to personal affairs. Both gentlemen named have always taken an active interest in everything relating to the welfare of the community. In concluding this sketch, we would state that the relations between the proprietors and employed of the Dumfries Foundry have been almost invariably of the most pleasant and satisfactory character. All the members of the company are active and enterprising business men, liberal in their dealings with their employees and as members of society highly esteemed.1a

12291 Shantz Station Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church

As the congregation was not organized until 1860, Lutherans from the area worshipped at the Lutheran Church in Preston from c.1855. Rev. Immanuel Wurster of St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Preston, conducted the first service in Shantz Station on February 5, 1860 in a school about one mile west of the community. Formal organization of the congregation was on March 25, 1860 by Rev. Wurster. A church was built two years later in 1862 on a half acre of land (German Company Tract, part lot 85) donated by John Galt of the Canada Company. There were 58 charter members listed as of 1862. Of interest is the fact that the church once had a steeple. It was demolished in an electrical storm in 1904 and was rebuilt only to be destroyed again in 1930 by lightning. It was not rebuilt after that.
In 1885 the congregation split from the Canada Synod and joined the Missouri Synod, only to return to the Canada Synod in the spring of 1891. From 1912-1934 Trinity was served by pastors and students from Waterloo College. Rev. Otto Lincke of the College was pastor from 1912-1919, students preached from 1919-1922, and Rev. Professor Henry L. Henkel also from Waterloo College was pastor from 1922-1934. The congregation was joined in a parish with St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Guelph from 1937-1981, and has been on its own since that association ended in 1981.
Pastors who followed Rev. Wurster (1860-1869) were Revs. C.F.A. Kaessmann (February 1869 to October 1869), Hermann Sagehorn (1869-1872), Immanuel Wurster, for the second time (1872-1885), and Peter Andres (1885-1890).1a

_____________

John Galt (1779-1839) was a novelist and a founder of the Canada Company.
He was born in Irvine, Ayrshire, Scotland, and was educated in Greenock. He moved to London in 1804, and from 1809 to 1811 travelled in the Near East in an unsuccessful attempt to forge a trading route that circumvented the Napoleon blockade. He then returned to England where he married Elizabeth Tilloch (a daughter of Dr. Tilloch, editor of the Philosophical Magazine) and began a writing career. Galt's writing consisted of various forms, including biography, drama, poetry, and fiction.
In 1824 he helped found and promote the Canada Company, whose function was to buy clergy reserve lands and sell them to British emigrants at a profit. As a commissioner of the company, he visited Upper Canada in 1825 and 1826. In 1826, he was appointed superintendent in charge of field operations, and took up residence in Upper Canada for three years. During this time he founded the towns of Guelph and Goderich. He was recalled by the Company in 1829, and upon his return to England was imprisoned for failing to pay his sons' tuition. While in prison, he wrote Lawrie Todd (published in 1830), Bogle Corbet (published in 1831) and his Autobiography (published in 1833). The money raised from these publications allowed his release from prison.
Galt was briefly involved in other business ventures, but ill health soon forced him to retire. He died in Greenoch, Scotland, in 1839.2a

In the basement of the mill is located the main line of shafting, with pulleys, two sets of large wheat brush machines, one Galt improved separator, one Galt improved cockle machine, one Galt improved smutter; also elevators for handling screenings and wheat. On the first floor are four runs of stones, twenty-four pairs of Galt improved rolls, three Galt improved flour packers and three weight scales. On the second floor are one improved centrifugal bolt, two middlings dusters and five purifiers; also bins for middlings and flour. The third floor contains four purifiers, four centrifugal bolts, one Galt improved middlings duster and bins. On the fourth floor are four Wilson's patent dust collectors and three four-reel bolts. On the fifth floor are two two-reel bolt chests, one single-reel chest, and the elevator tops, with dust protectors on each. The mill was fitted up under the direction of the foreman, Mr. Wilson who has several patents on the machines for the prevention of fire by friction, etc. The capacity of the mill is 350 barrels per day. The head miller is Mr. Anthony Marshall, who was lately in charge of a leading flour mill in Blenheim, Ont., and is a gentleman well qualified for the position in every respect, having had an extended experience of many years. The proprietors, Thomas Todd & Son and John Scott, are gentlemen of unquestioned business ability, push and enterprise, and are highly and justly esteemed in the community. Messrs.

It is fitted up with the most improved machinery, and their brands of flour are eagerly sought after, as is shown by the fact that a ready market is found for their large output, not only throughout the Dominion, but in competition with the world in the market of Great Britain. The gentlemen of the firm are also interested in the social side of the town's welfare, and are greeted on every hand as men of the highest commercial standing. Mr. Thos.

Of the many manufacturing enterprises that go to make the Town of Galt famous abroad as a manufacturing centre few, if any, have contributed in so large a degree as the one above mentioned. The product of the company consists of lambs' wool underclothing, hosiery, knitting yarns, etc. and one would have to search the Dominion through to find a larger or more complete establishment of its kind, or one better fitted with the latest and most improved machinery for turning out first-class goods in their line. The commodious buildings occupied by this firm are situated on North Water Street and West Main Street, together covering a large tract of ground space.

12324 F. G. Gardiner, Dominion Pianos and Organs, King Street East - The above-mentioned gentleman has been established in business in Berlin for the past three years as agent for Waterloo County for the celebrated Dominion Pianos and Organs, and since starting in business here he has met with pronounced success. It requires very little to be said in favor of these instruments; they are well and favorably known throughout the entire Dominion. The works of the Company are located in Bowmanville, and are the largest and most complete of their kind in the country. During the past two years the demand for the Dominion organs has more than doubled, and they are now to be found in England, Australia, West Indies, South America, Germany, Russia, and almost every civilized country on the face of the globe. At the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia in 1876, it was the only Canadian organ receiving an international medal and diploma of honor. This they received against 40 other competitors, the points of excellence being "a pure and satisfying tone, simple and efficient stop action, an elastic touch, and good general workmanship." Mr. Gardiner has an agency of which he may well be proud, for the instruments speak for themselves if the record of the manufacturers is not sufficient. The warerooms he occupies on King Street East are 20x50 feet in dimensions and two stories in height. He gives employment to three assistants, and has two teams in use in his business. He is a native of Canada, an active and enterprising business man, liberal in his dealings and straightforward in all his transactions. He was Town Councillor in Mount Forest, where he resided previous to coming to Berlin.1a

12326 "On October 16th, 1889, our pastor, Dr. Dickson, called a meeting of the young people of the congregation to organize for some definite line of work. It was decided, after having the work explained, to organize a Y.P.S.C.E. The constitution was discussed and adopted in part. The active and associate pledges were read, after which sixteen signed as active members. The following officers were elected: Hon. President, Rev. J. A. R. Dickson, B.D.; President, Mr. A. J. Colvin; Vice-President, Mr. Alex. McDonald; Secretary, Mrs. Goodwin. The following committees were formed, of which the persons whose names are appended were the conveners: Prayer-meeting, Mr. A. W. Wright, B.A.; Lookout, Miss Isa Gardiner; Sunday School, Miss Maggie Dickson; Social, Miss Beckie Goldie; Flower, Mrs. James Risk. The members took up the work in an earnest manner, keeping before them the motto: For Christ and the Church. The strength of our Society was the result of prayer. A Sunday evening prayer-meeting had been held for some time, under the leadership of Mr. A. W. Wright, also a woman s prayer-meeting once a week, both of these asking for special blessing on the young people of the congregation. The work taken up at first was confined to our own church, working along the lines of the different committees. In March we decided to give a free will offering at our monthly consecration meeting. This we still continue to do. ...1a

All through her sufferings she was always patient and had a smile for every one that came to see her and sang many a hymn on her bed of affliction. Her every day text was, "The Lord's will be done." On June 8 she was taken to her home and was slowly gaining, but as lung trouble set in she gradually failed. In November they moved to Canada, where she lived with her parents eight weeks and a half. She expressed herself many a time as willing and ready to meet her Savior. Although our hearts are sad we feel to praise God and rejoice that He has dealt so kindly with her, and has taken her to Himself where she so longed to go. She united with the A. M. Church when quite young and was a faithful member to the end. Before leaving her home in Michigan she longed to partake of the Lord's supper, which was served by Bishop Solomon Schwartzendruber. Funeral services were held at the A. M. Church west of Baden Nov. 25, conducted by Peter Boshart and Christian Litwiller. Text, Rev. 7:13,14, Dan. 12:2;3.

"This lovely bud so young so fair,
Called hence by early doom,
Just came to show how sweet a flower
In Paradise would bloom.
Through all her pain at time she smiled,
A smile of heavely birth,
And when the angels called her home,
She smiled farewell to earth."

The sad intelligence has been received of the death of Conrad L. Gaukel, at his home in Tacoma, Wash., on Thursday, May 4. The deceased was 46 years of age and was a former resident of Berlin. He left this town about 20 years ago, before which time he was employed as clerk at Fennel's hardware store. Deceased was a son of the late Levi Gaukel, and a brother of Mrs. Geo. Pequegnat and the late Mrs. Wm. Sherk, of this town, and Mr. Fred Gaukel, Bay City, Mich.1a

12421 Thomas Smith, a son of Capt. Smith, made a clearing on a farm west of the river road and opposite to the one that has long been known as the Millard farm. He sold his clearing to his brother-in-law, Emanuel Gaukel, and with his family, went to live in the township of Beverly.

Emanuel Gaukel was his right name but he was oftener called Mongowgkil. He was a son of Frederick Gaukel, who came from Wurtemburg, Germany, to Berlin, and for some years he had a hotel, where now the Walper House stands. Emanuel Gaukel married Mary Smith and came to live on the farm upon which his wife's brother, Thomas Smith, had made a clearing. Mongowgkil was a large man, an auctioneer and a constable. At one time he had a saw mill near West Montrose. When the Wellington, Grey and Bruce Railway was opened through to Southampton he went there. He had a saw mill and kept the post office at an Indian village called Chippewa Hill, about two miles from Southampton. Here Emanuel Gaukel died about October, 1893, and Mary, his wife, on March 18th, 1887, of their family: Frederick married Alma Meisener and lived between Lynden and Jerseyville; Washington married Jessie Glennie, he was drowned at Port Elgin on October 25th, 1874 at the age of twenty two; Elizabeth was married to Hiram McKay and now lives near Port Elgin; Zuby (Azubah) married Ira Kilborn, a Methodist Minister, and went to Iowa; Polly (Mary) was married to William Douglas and is now in Chicago.1a

12422 GAUKEL, FRIEDRICH (Frederick), farmer and businessman; b. 7 June 1785 in Württemberg (Federal Republic of Germany); m. first c. 1813 Polly Kaufman (d. 1827), and they had four sons and three daughters; m. secondly Maria Roschang (d. 1834 of cholera); m. thirdly Dorothea Weikmillar; d. 8 Nov. 1853 in Berlin (Kitchener), Upper Canada.

Friedrich Gaukel's name appears among those of the German immigrants who arrived at Philadelphia from Holland aboard the Rebecca on 27 Aug. 1804. Along with other Württemberg natives, he may have been attracted to America by the publicity attending the exodus to Pennsylvania at this time of members of the charismatic sect led by the German lay preacher and weaver John George Rapp. According to a short biography published by Gaukel's grandson Jacob Stroh, he served for his passage money as a redemptioner on a farm near Philadelphia. He continued farming after his release from the indenture and by 1815 lived near Johnstown, Pa.

About 1820 Gaukel, a Lutheran, heard of the Mennonite migration from Pennsylvania to Upper Canada and decided to move there. After a trip of four weeks he arrived with his family in Waterloo Township, where he worked in a distillery until he bought a small farm near Bridgeport (Kitchener) and began operating a distillery of his own. After 1826 increasing numbers of Germans arrived in the region directly from Europe and settled largely in four townships: Wilmot, Waterloo, Woolwich, and Wellesley. Thus when the settlement of Ebytown began to expand, Germans, as well as Mennonites, were prominent in its development as a commercial centre. On 2 Nov. 1833 Gaukel purchased property there from Joseph Schneider* and from Benjamin Eby and moved into the settlement. The deeds for these transactions are the first on record referring to the community as Berlin.

Gaukel operated a tavern while awaiting the completion of a larger building which would meet the demands of the growing village. A public-spirited member of the community, he subscribed to the establishment of Heinrich Wilhelm Peterson's newspaper Canada Museum, und Allgemeine Zeitung in 1835, the year in which Gaukel's Inn (later known as the Commercial Hotel) opened to the public. For many years Gaukel and his third wife, also a native of Württemberg, hosted, in addition to the inn's daily commercial activities, various civic and political meetings, markets, and other public gatherings in this predominantly German-speaking community. The wide veranda of the inn was a favourite tribune for political candidates who addressed the citizenry assembled in the street.

In 1841 and 1846 Gaukel acquired additional property and as one of Berlin's leading landowners he took an active interest in its municipal development. He donated the land on which Waterloo Township Hall was built in 1848- 49. Together with his friend Joseph Schneider and other early citizens, he had campaigned for the organization of Waterloo County, which took place in 1850, and he was much involved in promoting Berlin's selection as county seat in 1852. He provided land that year for the construction of a county court-house. In recognition of Gaukel's contributions, a grateful community named two of its early streets after him.1a

In 1800 Frederick Gaukel of Wurtemberg, Germany, arrived at Amsterdam too late to join a whaling expedition to the Arctic. Finding a sailing vessel going to Philadelphia, he allowed himself to be sold under the hammer to the highest bidder for a service period of three years, to pay for the voyage across the ocean. Eventually he was sold to a farmer.

Gaukel immigrated to Canada, arriving at Preston where he worked in a distillery. Later he moved to a small farm near Bridgeport and erected a log cabin and barn and a small distillery. In 1819 he moved to Berlin and in 1833 started Gaukel's Tavern, later the site of the Walper House.

Gaukel was a civic-minded citizen and donated the property bounded by Queen, Weber and Frederick Streets on which the 1852 County Building was erected. This building was demolished when the present County Building was erected in 1965. Two of Kitchener's streets, Frederick and Gaukel, bear his name.2a

____________________________

Shortly after the arrival of Mr. Hailer, Frederick Gaukel bought the Varnum tavern site. He was native in Wuertemberg, and first had owned a distillery and farm at Bridgeport. On November 2, 1833, he bought lots that lay from near the Walper House corner up to Ontario Street from Joseph Schneider. Mr. Gaukel bought also a block of land on the north side of King Street, between Queen and Ontario Streets, from Bishop Eby, and a small triangle on the corner of King and. Ontario Streets, to complete the Block, from Joseph Schneider.

Bishop Eby, accompanied by Joseph Schneider, named the Dorf, Berlin. The date is uncertain, but Mr. Hailer's deed of May. 1833, describes Six acre as being in Waterloo Township; whilst Mr. Gaukel's deed of November 2, 1833, says his purchase lay in Berlin The assumption is that the place was named Berlin in the summer of 1833.

Mr. Gaukel built a large frame hotel near the Walser House corner in 1835. It had stables in the rear and a driving-shed on the Bank of Montreal corner. At Gaukel's, a meal was Sold far fifteen cents and a glass of beer for three cents. There the householders of Berlin and the Township paid their taxes, and there they nominated candidates for the Wellington District Council.
Afterward Mr. Gaukel bought additional lands in West King Street, up to Gaukel Street, which was named for him. He bought also a strip in Schneider's Road, bordering the Walper corner, from Joseph E. Schneider; and lands in East Weber Street, including the courthouse site.4a

12428 Local Second World War vet dies at 93

KITCHENER One of the few remaining Second World War veterans in Waterloo Region has died at age 93.

Ken Gawthorn, who spent much of his life in Kitchener, won five medals in the Second World War and another five in the Korean War.

In 2014, he received France's highest national order for his service in liberating the country following D-Day in 1944.

"He was a pretty amazing guy," his son, also named Ken, said in an interview on Saturday.

Gawthorn, who died on Wednesday, was so eager to enlist, he lied about his age.

"I was only 16-and-a-half but I told them I was 19," he told The Record in 1994. "I grew up in a hell of a hurry."

The former member of the Hamilton-based Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders was presented with France's Legion of Honour three years ago in Hamilton.

"It's his favourite medal," his son said. "That's what he said. He was pretty proud."

Gawthorn, who landed in France in July 1944, took part in the Battle of the Falaise Pocket, an encirclement of the German army by Canadian, British, American and Polish forces. It trapped 50,000 German soldiers and is seen as the decisive engagement of the Battle of Normandy.

He also helped liberate cities and towns in Belgium

Gawthorn was wounded by shrapnel twice, once in France and once on the border of Belgium and Holland.

"One of the fellows stepped on a mine with his heel and I got hit with all the cinders and shrapnel," he recalled. "I was picking pieces of cinders out of my head for years afterward but I never left the battle that time."

He was discharged in 1946 and about 3½ years later re-enlisted to fight in the Korean War.

"I thought they needed me," Gawthorn said with a grin. "I was 26 then and some people said I was crazy."

He fought in the Korean War for a year and discovered it was a totally different type of warfare than the European campaigns. He was discharged in 1952.

Gawthorn didn't tell family members much about his war years.

"He never told me anything he didn't want me to hear," his son said. "I only heard the good stuff, right."

"I don't think many soldiers talk about the war," said Gawthorn's sister-in-law, Dianne Hause.

In 1953, Gawthorn was chosen to attend the coronation of Queen Elizabeth and was presented with the Coronation Medal at Buckingham Palace.

He returned to Belgium in 1994 to participate in ceremonies commemorating the 50th anniversary of the country's liberation. He was one of 25 Second World War veterans chosen by their regimental associations to attend.

Gawthorn went on to become the first regimental sergeant major of the Royal Highland Fusiliers in Kitchener.

He gave back to the community with countless volunteer hours and was named Kitchener's citizen of the year in 1999 for his work with seniors and caregiving.

"He would do anything for anybody, whether he knew you or not," Hause said.

His son, who lives in St. Clements, joined the army in 1966.

"I did a three-year stint and then I got out. I'm not the army guy like my dad. I did my time and that was it for me."

Gawthorn lived in Kitchener and St. Clements before moving to a St. Jacobs retirement home. His funeral is set for Sept. 22 in Kitchener.

His son is unsure whether any Second World War vets will attend.

"I don't know if there's any still alive that he knows, but the Korean vets will probably be there."

As of March 2016, there were just 61,300 Canadian veterans of the Second World War still alive, down from 75,900 in 2014.

12435 WILLIAM ALFRED GEDDES
Toronto, Ont.

WILLIAM ALFRED GEDDES, who by persistent efforts and close attention to business has placed himself at the head of Toronto Steamship Agencies, was born at Galt, Ontario, April 3rd, 1847, and is the youngest son of James and Ann Rachel Abbott Geddes; her English ancestry moving in the highest London society. His father was born in London and was educated there, afterwards being married in St. Martin's Church-in-the-Fields, one of the oldest places of worship in the city, having been built before the modern city extended its limits to the surrounding country. In 1818, he went to Georgetown, Demerara, South America, where he was a supply wharfinger and general agent, and remained there until 1835, when he came to Canada, settling on a farm at Jerseyville, near Hamilton, Ont. Here he remained some years, when he removed to St. George, and in 1850 to Galt, where he engaged in a general commission business, appraiser, auctioneer, legal advisor, conveyancer, etc. He died in 1870, his wife surviving him thirteen years. His family consisted of ten children; George, the eldest boy, is now in business at Glen Morris; James died when young, and William A. is the subject of our sketch. Emily, the eldest daughter living, is married, and resides at Gaines, Mich., U.S.; Annie is Mrs. W. Cooper, of Guelph; Mary married Walter Strowger, and Adelaide, the youngest, is still unmarried. William A. spent his younger days in attending one of the ward schools at Galt, and finished his education at the central school of that town. At thirteen, he entered a general store in his native town as an "all-round" handy boy, and served in the same capacity successively at Guelph, Doon, and Barrie, and in September, 1866, went to Hamilton, where he clerked in a grocery store for two years. In 1869 he began life as a purser on the steamer Osprey, plying between Hamilton and Montreal. He remained with this boat two seasons, and was after this with the Bristol, St. Lawrence, and City of Chatham, each a season. In 1873, he came to Toronto, and entered the office of G.E. Jacques & Co., general forwarders, of Montreal, representing them here for four years. In 1874, he took charge of Higinbotham's wharf at the foot of Young Street, which position he filled till the financial embarrassment of Higinbotham the following year. Mr. Geddes and Fred. Mowat, now sheriff of York county, succeeded to the business, and conducted it till 1877, when Mr. Mowat retired, the entire enterprise reverting to his partner. This was continued for then years, when the C.P.R. expropriated the land, since which time Mr. Geddes has leased it from the railway. This is the best and most popular dock in the city, more than two-thirds of the traffic, both passenger and freight, that is done in Toronto emanating from this point. In addition to this, Mr. Geddes has established a steamship ticket agency in this city, devoted exclusively to water routes, except where railway tickets are sold in connection therewith, and has built up a most important trade and connection. Among the lines which are represented at his office are the Merchants', trading on the great lakes; Niagara Falls line, Hamilton Steamboat Co., Cunard, Beaver and Wilson of ocean fame; North-West Transportation Co., and the Immediate Transportation Co., which has offices in the large cities, London, Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow, Paris, New York, Chicago, etc. By the routes represented, tickets can be sold and freight transported to any part of the world, while the amount of business transacted and patronage of the office steadily increases. Mr. Geddes has not had a long military career, but for two years was a member of No. 2, Galt light infantry. Among the enterprises in which he has been engaged was a part ownership in the steamer Cuba, plying between Chicago and Montreal, which he bought in 1877; also interests in the high grade vessels California, Aylmer, Munro and Ocean. The Rosedale, in which he has also an extensive interest, was built in the winter of 1887-8 at the Sunderland Ship-Building Co.'s yards in the north of England, and was the first steamer to cross the Atlantic and carry freight from England to Chicago without trans-shipment. The promoters of this enterprise were three Toronto gentlemen, W.A. Geddes, J.H. Haggarty, and Capt. S. Crangle. The first trip was made in June, the trip occupying seventeen days, and the success of the enterprise fully demonstrated. In 1885, Mr. Geddes, with two or three other Toronto gentlemen, organized the Canadian Marine Association, which is highly appreciated by marine interests, and he has, since its inception, held the position of Sec.-Treas. In 1872, he was initiated into the mysteries of Masonry, joining St. George's Lodge, No. 4, Montreal. A year later he affiliated with St. Andrew's, No. 16, Toronto, and has passed successively the Lodge of Perfection and Scottish rite, and now into Rose Croix Chapter. Politically, he is, like his father and grandfather, a Conservative. His travel has been quite extensive, but mostly confined to his native country, believing it essential to the interests of his business that he be familiar with its different sections. He has been in many parts of the States as well, and in 1883 took a pleasure trip to Europe. He is a consistent Episcopalian, and attends St. Peter's church. December 22, 1870, he married Matilda J. Trowell, daughter of the late Capt. John Trowell, Kingston, Ontario, who was a lake captain for over forty years. Of the children born to this union, four are now living; Isabella Matilda is attending the Conservatory of Music in this city, while Emma Charlotte, William Alfred and Agatha Louise are attending school. When Mr. Geddes began in life as an errand boy, his only stock in trade were willing hands and a determined will. Steadily he has climbed from one landing to another, until the position he now holds, both socially and commercially, and the amount of business transacted at his office, place him prominently among the successful and self-made men of the country.1a

12438 WILLIAM ALFRED GEDDES
Toronto, Ont.

WILLIAM ALFRED GEDDES, who by persistent efforts and close attention to business has placed himself at the head of Toronto Steamship Agencies, was born at Galt, Ontario, April 3rd, 1847, and is the youngest son of James and Ann Rachel Abbott Geddes; her English ancestry moving in the highest London society. His father was born in London and was educated there, afterwards being married in St. Martin's Church-in-the-Fields, one of the oldest places of worship in the city, having been built before the modern city extended its limits to the surrounding country. In 1818, he went to Georgetown, Demerara, South America, where he was a supply wharfinger and general agent, and remained there until 1835, when he came to Canada, settling on a farm at Jerseyville, near Hamilton, Ont. Here he remained some years, when he removed to St. George, and in 1850 to Galt, where he engaged in a general commission business, appraiser, auctioneer, legal advisor, conveyancer, etc. He died in 1870, his wife surviving him thirteen years. His family consisted of ten children; George, the eldest boy, is now in business at Glen Morris; James died when young, and William A. is the subject of our sketch. Emily, the eldest daughter living, is married, and resides at Gaines, Mich., U.S.; Annie is Mrs. W. Cooper, of Guelph; Mary married Walter Strowger, and Adelaide, the youngest, is still unmarried. William A. spent his younger days in attending one of the ward schools at Galt, and finished his education at the central school of that town. At thirteen, he entered a general store in his native town as an "all-round" handy boy, and served in the same capacity successively at Guelph, Doon, and Barrie, and in September, 1866, went to Hamilton, where he clerked in a grocery store for two years. In 1869 he began life as a purser on the steamer Osprey, plying between Hamilton and Montreal. He remained with this boat two seasons, and was after this with the Bristol, St. Lawrence, and City of Chatham, each a season. In 1873, he came to Toronto, and entered the office of G.E. Jacques & Co., general forwarders, of Montreal, representing them here for four years. In 1874, he took charge of Higinbotham's wharf at the foot of Young Street, which position he filled till the financial embarrassment of Higinbotham the following year. Mr. Geddes and Fred. Mowat, now sheriff of York county, succeeded to the business, and conducted it till 1877, when Mr. Mowat retired, the entire enterprise reverting to his partner. This was continued for then years, when the C.P.R. expropriated the land, since which time Mr. Geddes has leased it from the railway. This is the best and most popular dock in the city, more than two-thirds of the traffic, both passenger and freight, that is done in Toronto emanating from this point.

12456 Body of vet technician Nadia Gehl found on a path near her Kitchener home


by Greg Mercer, Melinda Dalton, Brent Davis The Record

KITCHENER \emdash Teams of black-clad police clutching assault rifles shut down a busy west-end neighbourhood yesterday, after the niece of a prominent criminal lawyer was left for dead in a snowbank near her house. Nadia Gehl, 28, a veterinary technician and assistant manager of a toy store, was found on a path not far from her Watercress Court home by two people waiting at a bus stop. Neighbours said they heard gunshots around 8:45 a.m., about the time Gehl was walking to catch a bus to her job at Toys R Us. She was rushed to hospital, where she was declared dead. Police are calling the death suspicious but homicide detectives couldn't shed light on how the young woman died. Her stunned family was also in the dark. Gehl was last seen alive by her husband, Ron Cyr, at 8 a.m., when he left for work, according to her father. "We don't have any idea what happened, or why it happened," said Nicholas Gehl, a local real estate lawyer, visibly shaken in an interview yesterday afternoon. "We don't understand this." Her husband works as an assistant to her uncle Steve Gehl, a prominent local criminal lawyer who specializes in mental health cases.1a

12462 St. Clement's Roman Catholic Church

The first Catholic missionaries in the area were Father James W. Campion, Father Cassidy and Father John Cullen - beginning c.1828. They were followed by the St. Agatha missionaries, Fathers John Louis Wiriath (1834-1837) and Peter Schneider (1838-1844), but it was Father Simon Sanderl (1844-1848), also from St. Agatha, who organized the construction of a church. The deed for the land, located on the northwest corner of Duke and Guelph (now Dolph) Streets and purchased from the Erb brothers (for five shillings), was dated March 9, 1846, but it is thought that building actually began in 1844. The new church was reported to be "perhaps the only substantial Catholic church west of Toronto" (Spetz 1916:139).

Services were held more or less monthly for many years as priests were in short supply and had to be shared by other congregations. Regular monthly services began in February 1882 with the arrival of Father William Kloepfer of Berlin who looked after Preston as well. Then, beginning in 1889 Preston and Hespeler became missions of Galt. Finally, on March 25, 1905, Preston received its own resident pastor, Rev. Jonas Lenhard. By now it had become apparent that a new and larger church was definitely needed but it was not until January 1907, when Father William Gehl was pastor, that land further along Duke Street was purchased. The cornerstone for the present church was laid September 4, 1911, and the basement of the building was ready for use the following year. The basement continued in use for services until the church was completely finished in 1922. The old church had been torn down in the summer of 1915. Fire on December 26, 1971 caused considerable damage, but the church was not damaged structurally. Repairs were made and the church was rededicated on June 25, 1972.1a

12475 On the 21st of January, in McPherson Co., Kansas, Sister MARY BRUNDAGE, aged 62 years and 4 months; buried the 23rd. Services by John Evers in English from Heb. 11:13-16, and by Henry Gartz in German from 2 Cor. 5:11.

Mother Brundage has been a sister of the Mennonite Church for more than 40 years. She lived in the bonds of matrimony 38 years, being a faithful wife, a kind and devoted mother. She leaves a husband and 4 children to mourn their loss; five children having preceded her to the spirit world. On Thursday she was taken with a congestive chill, suffering severe pain, which she bore with Christian fortitude until Friday morning, when she calmly fell asleep in Jesus. She did not expect to get well, having a presentiment of her death in a dream a few nights previous, in which it was told her that she would not live till Sunday. In her death the church has lost a faithful member, a bright and shining light, possessed of a meek and quiet spirit, and loved most by those who knew her best.

An aged consort mourns his loss,
But his loss is her gain;
And he too soon may meet her
On the bright and golden plain.
Her children too will sorely grieve
When of her death they hear;
But if they only faithful prove
They'll meet her over there.
And in the church we miss her,
When we together meet;
We feel we have sustained a loss
As we view her vacant seat.
We need not mourn without a hope,
For here she served the Lord,
And now she's only gone before,
To reap a rich reward.
Oh may the Lord our souls sustain,
While here the race we run,
And always give us grace to say,
Father, they will be done!

Fell asleep in Jesus, on the 14th of August, in Dumfries township, Waterloo county, Ontario, Solomon Gehman, aged 71 years, 10 months, and 12 days. He was afflicted for over a year with dropsy, which finally settled on his heart. He was confined to his bed only three days, during which time he suffered great pain, which he bore with christian patience. He was buried on the 17th, followed to the grave by a large concourse of friends and relatives, upon which occasion Daniel High preached a discourse in German, from 2 Tim. 4: 7, 5, and John McNelly in the English language.
The deceased was born in Herford township, Berks county, Pa., and his father John Gehman was a minister in the Mennonite church 38 years, in Upper Milford, Lehigh county, Pa. In his youth Solomon emigrated(sic) to Canada, in the year 1822, where his neighbors at that time were Indians. He was married to Catharine Bechtel in 1827. In 1815 (???) his first wife died and in 1849 he was married a second time to widow Magdalena Weber, whose maiden name was Good. With his first wife he had 10 children, two of whom are dead. With his last wife he had 3 children of whom also one died. He leaves a deeply afflicted widow and ten children to mourn their loss. May God grant them grace, and though it be through many tears and much tribulation, to fit and prepare themselves for the home of the blessed in his eternal kingdom.


"Weep not around my bier.
When I am dead.
Nor drop the friendly tear
Upon my head.
Afar in yonder sky
I'll find my home,
And wait in realms of light
For you to come."2a

12484 Rev. Solomon Gehman, "was born July 21st, 1841. On May 3rd, 1864, he was married to Angeline Shantz who was born April 10th, 1846. After their marriage they moved on his father's old homestead where he is still residing. On November 26th, 1882, he was ordained unto the ministry of the Mennonite denomination by Bishop Amos Cressman. His field of labor is Detweilers and Blenheim. Of the many young men who were ordained unto the ministry of the Mennonite Church since 1870 none have surpassed him as an orator. As a preacher he is highly interesting and acceptable. His sermons are always distinguished for appropriate and well-digested thought, far from being dry and merely a repetition of meaningless gestures and phrases, but, on the other hand, they are well seasoned with gospel truth accompanied by the Holy Ghost. He has done much to raise the standard of the church of his choice. Parties of all denominations love to be instructed spiritually by his soul-cheering sermons. He seems to be a favorite, not only among his own members but also of those of other sects and nationalities. To him and his wife is born the following family"1a

Gehman
. - Pre. Solomon B. Gehman was born July 21, 1841; died at his home near Waterloo, Ont., Nov. 19, 1912; aged 71 y. 3 m. 28 d. About 30 years ago he was ordained to the ministry in the Mennonite Church, in which calling we believe he was faithful in performing his duties. He was in good health, until about 3 months ago, when he was stricken down with a complication of diseases causing his death. He was a powerful speaker, full of Spirit and life, and no sacrifice was too great by day nor night, in going out, especially in bringing the lost to Christ. The writer is especially impressed in remembering the time (about 27 years ago) when Bro. Gehman and different others came into our midst holding the first evening meetings, as we then called them, when quite a number of us became willing to accept Christ as our Savior. In this Bro. Gehman was an instrument and we believe there will be stars in his crown. Funeral was held on Nov. 21st. Services at the house by Noah Hunsberger and at the Waterloo Church by Jonas Snider in German, and Noah Stauffer in English, from II Tim. 6:8. Buried at the David Eby cemetery. He is survived by the widow, 3 sons and 2 daughters; one son, John Allen preceded him.2a

Roseville Mennonite Church (Detweiler Meeting House)

Services began in homes in the area with the arrival of the first settlers around 1822. A first meeting house was built about 1830 approximately a half-mile west of Roseville, on the south side of the road. One acre of land on the northeast corner of Lot 37, Concession 11, North Dumfries Township, was transferred from Samuel C. Snyder. The deed for the property was dated 1830, but it was not registered until August 1842. A stone meeting house was built in 1855 just slightly east of the old log meeting house; the church was dedicated on November 25, 1855 by the congregation's first minister, Jacob F. Detweiler. Henry Shantz, Enoch Detweiler and Solomon Gehman were the ministers who followed Jacob F. Detweiler.

Sunday School began in 1924 and in 1933 Young People's Bible Meetings were organized. The latter meetings were held in conjunction with those of the Blenheim Mennonite Church. A Sunday School classroom was added to the Detweiler church in 1956.

Moses Bowman, a layman from First Mennonite Church in Kitchener, was ordained minister to Detweiler Mennonite Church in 1938 where he continued to serve until the time of his death in 1964. The small congregation was served by visiting ministers until it disbanded in January 1966. Some of the remaining families are reported to have joined with Blenheim Mennonite Church at that time.3a

We are grateful for the diligent and respectful care she received while there for the past year and for the compassion and regard shown to the family. In her 98th year, Florence was the daughter of Jacob and Alberta (Schmermund) Geiger, and was predeceased by her husband Walter (2006) after 64 years together, and two sisters, Beatrice Christman (2000) and Gertie Geiger (1997).

She is also held in the hearts of her two grandsons and great-grandchildren: Trevor Schott and his wife Brenda and their children, Marlowe and Walker; and Trent Schott and his wife Kerry and their daughters, Abby and Morgan. Florence came to Elmira from the home farm west of Glen Allen as a young woman, met and married Wally and resided in Elmira on Centre Street for most of her life. She was an avid gardener, canning and preserving the bounty of her garden. Her hands were ever occupied with knitting, crocheting, quilting and sewing. She conserved, reused and recycled long before it became an emphasis. St. James Lutheran Church, Elmira was the harbor for Mom's deeply held spiritual beliefs. She was a life-long member and was tenderly shepherded by Pastor Hans Borch in her last years. In keeping with Florence's wishes, there will be no visitation and a private family service will be held. The family expresses thanks for prayers and loving support given to them. www.dreisingerfuneralhome.com.1a

Breslau Missionary Church

Meetings are reported to have been held in 1872 in a building at the corner of Woolwich Street and Mader Lane by a group who were followers of Solomon Eby. Conferences to consider reorganization of the church were held in 1874 and 1875, the most important of which was considered to have been the meeting at the Bloomingdale Mennonite Church on May 23, 1875. Members of the New Mennonites and the Reforming (or Reformed) Mennonites joined together at that meeting as the United Mennonites. At a meeting in Blair in 1879 a union, called the Evangelical United Mennonites, was formed from the United Mennonites and the Evangelical Mennonites. Four years later, in 1883, the Ohio Brethren in Christ (Tunker) joined with the Evangelical United Mennonites to form the Mennonite Brethren in Christ.

Dedication services were held on Christmas Day, 1882, for the new Breslau Mennonite Church which had been built during the year. Henry Goudie was minister to the congregation from 1881-1884. He was followed by Peter Geiger (1884-1885) and Frank Moyer (1885-1886). Solomon Eby, a member of the congregation who was minister from 1886-1889, had been one of the organizers on May 15, 1874 of the Reforming Mennonites.

On May 6, 1959 a decision was made to construct an 1800 square foot addition to the church. The sanctuary was enlarged and new pews were installed in 1978; dedication was in September of that year. Rev. Leonard DeWitt, president of the Missionary Church was guest speaker on Sunday, November 21, 1982, when the church's 100th Anniversary service was held. Of interest: the sign eteched in the glass above the doors on the northwest side of the back section reads "United Missionary Church."2a

Bethany Missionary Church

A congregation of Reforming (or Reformed) Mennonites was organized at a meeting on May 15, 1874 by a group of church members who had been excommunicated from their former church. A conference at Bloomingdale on March 23, 1875 resulted in the union of Reforming (or Reformed) Mennonites and New Mennonites into a new group known as United Mennonites. In 1883, the congregation became a Mennonite Brethren in Christ Church and was to remain as such for the next sixty-four years. In November 1947 the General Conference held in Potsdam, Ohio approved a change of name to United Missionary Church. During meetings held from March 12 to 16, 1969 the former United Missionary Church and the former Missionary Church Association joined together to form The Missionary Church.

Early meetings of what would become known as Bethany Mennonite Church were held in homes until the summer of 1877 when a church was built on the present site on Lancaster Street East, at the future corner of that street and Chapel Street. The church was the twelfth one to be built in Berlin. Completion and dedication of the new church was in late December, 1877. Services were held in German in the beginning with English-language services being introduced in the 1880s. In 1900 a decision was made to have German-language services every other Sunday morning. A vestibule, new platform, and altar rail were added to the 1877 building in 1900, but it wasn't many years later that the need for a new and larger church became pressing. The old church was torn down in 1908 to make way for construction of a new one on the same site. Dedication Sunday was September 20, 1908. Of interest is the fact that a large tent, pitched at the back of the church property, was used for church services in the interim. The new church was known as the Berlin Congregation of the Mennonite Brethren in Christ. About this same time occasional references were made to the name of Bethany. A violent storm and high winds on the evening of November 29, 1919 caused the front part of the church roof to be lifted off. Major renovations to finish the basement and add a new heating system were made to the church in 1940, and in 1964 an Educational Wing was added.

The first pastor was Moses Weber. He was followed by Peter Geiger, John McNally and John Steckley. Pastor C.F. Krauth was minister in 1908 when the new red brick church was built. He was followed by Cyrus N. Good, Silas Cressman and Ephraim Sievenpiper. Of interest: annual Camp Meetings were held by the congregation in Samuel Schneider's woods through the years 1887-1910.3a

Wilmot (Geiger) Mennonite Church Begun: 1838
The church is located on Lot 17, Bleams Road South, Wilmot Township, approximately one mile west of Wilmot Centre and two miles east of New Hamburg. Ulrich Geiger, who was ordained minister in 1838, served the Mennonites in the area for about ten years. Burkholder states that "Abraham Honsberger is said to have been the first minister in the Geiger church" (1935:79).
The first meeting house was built in 1844, although actual purchase of the land from David Geiger was not completed until 1846. A new and larger frame church was erected in 1876. Extensive remodelling was carried out in 1913.
The church was known as Geiger Mennonite Church until 1977.1a

12553 St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church

Presbyterian meetings were held in private homes beginning in 1854. A petition to form a congregation was granted soon after by Hamilton Presbytery with the result that St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, with 20 charter members, was organized on January 23, 1855. The first service was conducted in a schoolhouse on Frederick Street across from the Market Square by Rev. W. Pirie of the Doon Presbyterian Church. At that time the congregation was united with Winterbourne, an arrangement which ended in 1857.

The congregation decided in 1856 to build a church. The first church building was erected accordingly in 1857 at the corner of Queen and Weber Streets while Rev. A. Constable Geikie was minister (1857-1859). Rev. Geikie had been ordained on July 16, 1856 by the Presbytery of Toronto, and was inducted as minister to St. Andrew's on March 5, 1857. Rev. Geikie was followed by Revs. John McMechan (December 15, 1859-May 8, 1866), Thomas Cummings (1866-1867) and Albert J. Traver (1867-1870).

A separate Sunday School building was erected on Weber Street in 1874 and in 1890 an addition was constructed to connect the Sunday School to the church. The old church was removed in 1906 and the cornerstone for the present church, which was to be built on the same site, was laid October 10, 1906. Formal opening of the new church was held on September 8, 1907. Rev. W. A. Bradley (1899-1912) was minister at the time.

When the United Church of Canada was formed on June 10, 1925 from the union of Methodist, Congregational and some Presbyterian congregations, a number of St. Andrew's Church members left to join the United Church, most of them going to Trinity United. One of these was the church's minister, Rev. G. B. McLennan, who became assistant minister at Trinity.

The year 1939 saw the installation of new lights and carpets; the redecorated church was rededicated on September 10, 1939 at the beginning of the Second World War. The congregation celebrated its 100th Anniversary in the Fall of 1954, the same year in which Iona Hall was dedicated - on Friday, April 2nd. An addition to the church which consisted of a new chapel and additional space for the Sunday School was dedicated on September 15, 1969. Services to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the church were held in 1979.1a

__________________________

About the year 1854 an effort was made in connection with a new congregation started in Berlin, largely through the influence of Sheriff Davidson, he had removed there about the year 1843 to obtain a pastor over the two congregations During 1855 and part of 1856 ministers of the Presbytery gave supply, and from October 1856 Rev. A. Constable Geikie preached to the two congregations. A call was prepared for him June 28th, 1857, but the Woolwich people were not satisfied with the arrangements for services, so the union was dissolved and Woolwich stood alone again. Both congregations got up a call for Mr. Geikie, but being invited by the celebrated Dr. Bayne, of Galt, to be his helper and successor in Knox Church of that town, he accepted and had just removed and got settled there when one Sabbath morning Dr. Bayne died very suddenly, and the congregation of Knox Church, Galt, refused to carry out the arrangements, so Mr. Geikie removed to Australia and became one of the great leaders of the church there and passed away a few years ago. Returning to the other branch of the church, St. Andrew's, Woolwich, we have the Session Records to guide us in tracing the history. On Oct. 17th, 1854, the Presbytery of Hamilton met in the church, composed of Rev. J. C. Gibson (Galt), Rev. Kenneth MacLennan and Rev. Cohn Gregor (Guelph), for the purpose of inducting the Rev. James Shour. The elders present were George Loggie, James Burnett and William Smith, all belonging to St. Andrew's, Woolwich, of whom George Loggie and James Burnett were new members of the Session and had been chosen and ordained during the vacancy. The Rev Mr. Gibson preached from 1 Cor. 3:9 'Ye are gods', and after the usual vows had been accepted by the Rev. Mr. Shour he was addressed by the Rev. Mr. Gregor and the people by Rev. Mr. MacLennan. The Rev. Mr. Shour was a man of short stature and thick set build, kindly and quiet in his manner. He was educated in Glasgow, Scotland, was ordained and inducted into the charge of Three Rivers, Quebec, in 1844 and in 1854 into the charge of St. Andrew's, Woolwich. At his settlement the families connected with the congregation were 40, the communicants 56, scholars in Sabbath school 100, teachers 11 and one bible class. Half the families that supported and attended the services of the church were Episcopalians. The arrangement for services were Sabbath school to be held at ten on Sabbath morning, public service at eleven with occasional evening services, prayer meetings in private houses each week alternately on each side of the Grand River.2a

12555 The historical significance of Hillary House is based on the careers of four prominent physicians who lived there and who served the community of Aurora with distinction. The house derives its name from the last family of physicians, Dr. Robert William Hillary and later his son, Dr. Robert Michael Hillary and their descendents. The Hillarys served their community from 1876 to 1993. Family members preserved their photographs and memorabilia, contributing to the preservation of Aurora's history.

Dr. Walter Bayne Geikie was the first of the four physicians to live in what was then known as The Manor. The deed for the house registers a transfer in 1861 of about four acres of land from Jane Irwin, wife of Robert P. Irwin, to Dr. Walter Bayne Geikie. Dr. Geikie then hired an architect, possibly a local man, Henry Harris, to design his new home and practice. While he was waiting to occupy his new home Dr. Geikie rented a cottage located across the street from The Manor from Charles Doan. It must have been interesting for the doctor to watch his new home taking shape. Construction was completed in 1862 and on November 26th of that year, Dr. Geikie moved into his new residence and practice.

Dr. Geikie was a prominent figure in Aurora. The Edinburgh born Scotsman (b.1830), educated in Toronto and Philadelphia, set up practice in Aurora in 1855. When not developing his large and successful practice, he lectured at the Mechanics' Institute and helped to found the town's Choral Society. He also lectured in medicine at the medical school of Victoria College. In The Doctors of 72 Yonge Street North, Michael Wills writes: "By 1869 his responsibilities in the two chairs of Medicine and Clinical Medicine made commuting so tedious that Dr. Geikie moved to Toronto. Here he became famous as a medical educator, serving as Dean of Trinity Medical College for 32 years until its amalgamation with the University of Toronto Medical School in 1903. He was also a churchman, president of the Toronto City Mission, a member of the Presbyterian Hymnal Committee and for 65 years a member of the Upper Canada Bible Society. He died in January of 1917."1a

John S. Geisel Reminisces On Early Elmira District History

The Signet this week is paying tribute to one of the oldest couples still living, and in good health, of Elmira and district. With this issue, we present John S. Geisel, who was born on a farm close to Elmira, and who as a boy of 13 helped to make the logs and foundation blocks which went into the foundation of the West Montrose covered bridge which was started in 1880. Illness of the contractor led to a postponement, but the boy returned in 1882 to see the structure to its completion. It is one of the few covered bridges left in Ontario.

His son, Walter, now reeve in Woolwich Township, supervised the repairs to the old bridge earlier this year, and both Mr. and Mrs. Geisel were taken to the site to watch repairs.

John S. Geisel was born on a farm owned by his parents in 1867 in Woolwich Township, and here he grew to a youth of 17 before starting out to earn his own living.

For more than 51 years he can boast an unbroken record of having farmed in the district. And he retired a successful farmer, in the general sense of the term.

Mr. Geisel is a modest man, with an excellent memory. His only boast was that on the evening of marriage the bride and groom danced at a private home, and later, he smoked a last cigar, and decided to quit smoking. He left the burnt end on a window sill in order to make his resolution even more determined. For five days, he related, he restlessly passed that portion of cigar. But he was through with smoking. He then asked this reporter what he would assume a man could save by not spending 10 cents per day every day from the year 1895 when he was married to the present year, 1955. The reporter hazarded a wild guess - and he was solemnly assured, with his wife nodding confirmation, that with accumulated interest the amount saved ran to no less than $5000.

It was while doing day labor on a farm that he met his future wife in Elmira, where she was visiting a relative. The year was 1895. Mrs. Geisel is the former Mary Ann Koch of Clifford.

The young couple immediately planned to farm on the share-crop tenant basis of the old days. With his bride, who helped clean the house, which was quite old, they moved in. Their landlord by agreement provided cow pasture, wood, and $100 cash annually. They managed fairly well the first year, and in the second Mr. Geisel cleared some seven more acres, using horses to pull out the stumps.

When he embarked, in 18906, into his own stock and equipment, the prices he recalls, today, are a true reminder of what farming without the aid of self-propelled machinery could mean.

For a good milch cow, he reminisced, "I paid $17, and I think I got a bargain in two heifers, due to freshen in a few weeks, at $10 apiece. I also bought three horses for $100." He also added he bought one bob sleigh, at a sale for $7.

In the lie of farm implements, he bought, from his careful savings, a new Harris six-section harrow for $6.00. He considered this a bargain. A binder, also picked up through careful inquiries, was obtained for $3.

Mr. Geisel early learned the necessity of public service, and prior to his retirement from farming he had been a school trustee, as well as reeve. When he finally retired, and bought a dwelling in Elmira, he was also close to a church he had served for many years, the last 12 as an elder - St. Paul's Lutheran Church which he helped to build.

He could remember that, before his marriage, he would often accept a job cutting wood at 50 cents a day. Sometimes he would enter a wood-cutting contract. He remembers once having a very good partner, and cutting wood at 75 cents for 4 feet cord; and 50 cents for two-foot length cords. With the partners working daily, the average daily cut of the two men averaged four cords.

12595 Killed By Shell

Particulars Received Concerning the Death in Action of T. M. Gemmell

M. S. Gemmell, 9th concession of North Dumfries, has received the following letter concerning his son, Thomas Mitchell Gemmell, 21 years of age, who was killed in action on the Western front on February 26. The letter was written by Major C. F. Richardson, North Shore (N.B.) Regt., B Company, the unit to which Tommy was attached:- "Dear Mr. Gemmell: It is with deep regret and sympathy that I write to you regarding the death of your son, Tom. He had been my driver for some few months and I got attached to him. He used to drive me everywhere and was always a real gentleman, and a young man to be well proud of. He was very cool and deliberate in all his actions and thought, and was one of the most popular men in my Company.

"We had taken a small village: near the Rhine on the 26th of February, and the next day Tom was walking outside the Company's H.Q. when a shell landed close by him. His left leg was taken off above the knee and he was knocked unconscious from the blast and shock. We took him immediately to the R.A.P. and he died on the way there.

"It is very hard to understand why these things have to happen, but, if we remember that he has not died in vain and that he died fighting for a cause we know is right and true and his memory will always live in the memory of all nations and it will be closely remembered by those of us who knew him so well.

"If at any time you wish to write and if there is anything I can do for you, please feel free to write.

"Tom was buried in a Canadian Military Cemetery near a small village called Keppelu and had a military funeral."

12667 A Child Smothered - A very sad occurrence was made manifest at New Dundee on the afternoon of Christmas Day. A Christmas festival was being held in the church in that village, and among those who arrived to attend it were Mr. and Mrs. Henry Gerbig, of Mannheim, with their infant child. When they arrived at the church, Mrs. Gerbig proceeded to take the baby from the wrappings which had been used to keep out the extreme cold, when she was horrified to find that the poor little thing was lifeless - that it had been smothered on the way over. Her distress on realizing that her child was dead was most painful to witness, and the utmost sympathy was manifested for herself and her husband by those present in the church.

12674 ROBINSON, Jean Isobel (nee Germann)

Passed away February 14, 2015 at the age of 94. Born in Waterloo, Ont. she grew up in a household full of music. Luckily both Jean and sister Louise inherited their father's wonderful musicality. She married her high school sweetheart, Allan Hayes in 1944 and moved to Nassau where he was based. An R.C.A.F. Flying Officer, he was tragically killed months after they wed. With remarkable support from sister Louise, she returned home to continue a professional singing career, most notably on the Dominion Network in "Singing Stars of Tomorrow" and Good Year's "Parade of Stars". In 1946 and 47, she was hired as the concert soloist at the Banff Springs Hotel and the Chateau Lake Louise. In year two at the Chateau, she met her future husband and lifelong accompanist, Dr. Harold Robinson, who was also an accomplished pianist. A three-month engagement was followed by 67 years of marriage filled with love and music. In 1951 the family moved from Banff to Vancouver. Active in the music of her church and the Vancouver Philharmonic Music Club, she shared her talents with family, friends, and audiences her entire life. Jean's enduring legacy will be the joy of music she imparted to so many. When her husband became the Medical Director of C.A.R.S., she became an active volunteer in the Arthritis Society. Jean was a very loving and supportive mother and grandmother, attending nearly every musical performance in which her family was involved. Jean was widowed 10 months ago. She was also predeceased by her sister Louise and son-in-law Kurt. She is survived by her loving family, daughter Ann Neumann, son Chris Robinson (Paddi), grandchildren Chris, Katherine (Agustin), Caitlin, Jennifer, Michaela, great-granddaughter Magnolia, nieces and nephews. The family wishes to thank the Crescent Gardens Care Staff for their tremendous care and compassion over the past four years. A Celebration of Life will take place on Friday February 27, 2015 at 2 p.m. at Canadian Memorial Church, 16th and Burrard, with a reception following.

12683 In the questionaire sent by the Presbytery of Guelph concerning the history of the church, a question was asked as to when the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper was first dispensed to the congregation. I applied to Mrs. Samuel Burnett, an old member of the congregation at the time, but since gone home, and was disappointed to receive the reply that she could not remember, but after talking about some other things, she said 'Mr. Gardiner, of Fergus, married us and remained'. I eagerly caught at the statement, and said 'that is just what I want, when were you married,' and after a little consideration she said in the fall of 1840. So the congregation must have been organized at that time. She told a rather interesting story concerning the same Mr. Gardiner. They were brought up in the same neighborhood and knew each other in Scotland, and when about to emigrate her father, Mr. Wm. Gerrie, chose a certain vessel to cross the ocean, but was told it was slow boat and so changed to another. When they reached Hamilton about the summer of 1836 they went to church on Sabbath and were astonished to find the preacher was Mr. Gardiner. He had taken the so-called slow boat and got there before them. He was the first minister of St. Andrew's Church, Fergus, but only lived a few years, and is buried behind that church under a flat stone. Mrs. Burnett also gave me another interesting item. The feeling ran very high between the two parties at the disruption. Previous to this the church building had been used by all denominations - the Methodist and English church had occasional services in it. But after the disruption the Free church party were excluded from the church. The preacher sent to preach and organize them was the Rev. Mr., afterwards Dr. Smellie, of Fergus, successor to Mr. Gardiner. When he came to the church the door was locked and an entrance refused. Mr. Bemis then kept hotel across the road from the church, and he kindly invited the congregation to occupy his lawn, and Mr. Smellie had as his pulpit the porch in front of the hotel, the people standing or sitting on the grass. His text was Ezek. 37:1-10, the passage about the 'dry bones.' I mentioned the matter to my good friend, Rev. J.A. Mullan, and thought he would be interested in it, but received the dry reply 'Yes he was always preaching about the dry bones.' I found I had touched a tender spot and said no more1a

12686 The Free Church branch, having no church building, held their services in the stone schoolhouse, now part of the residence of Mrs. Andrew Brown. The summer services were conducted largely by students of Knox College. Probably the winter services were carried on by themselves. I am told that Mr. Wm. Gerrie, Sr., was a good preacher and Mr. George (Sheriff) Davidson also belonged to that party. The Free Church building, known latterly as "the lecture room", was built in 1848 by William Mitchell as carpenter and George Cummings as mason. The deed for the lot was given by G. Davidson to William Mitchell, George Cummings, and Jas. Adamson, as trustees for the congregation, on the eighth day of March, 1852, for the sum of five shillings currency (about one dollar of our money). This was the first piece of real estate that became the possession of either congregation.1a

12706 GHENT, Harold Davidson 1914 - 2010 His wish was finally granted "to go home to see Jesus and Alice" on Sunday, February 28, 2010 at Fairview Mennonite Home in Cambridge, surrounded by his loving family and caring staff. Together Harold and his wife Alice raised eight children (two and a half-dozen as Alice would say). When asked "Eight children? How did you do it?" Dad would reply with a grin, "We called it co-operation." Loving father of Jo Ann Brown (Martin), Cambridge; Dawn Powell (John), Kelowna B.C.; John (Janice), Oakville; Doug (Sharon), Petersburg; Hugh (Claire), Deep River; Paul (Liz), Peru; Nancy Snyers (Jean Pierre), Belgium; and Barbie Vlasov (John), St. George. Proud grandfather of 27 and great-grandpa of 17. Harold was born and raised in Mount Forest and held the 6th (Concession) of Arthur close to his heart. Although his formal education finished at Grade nine, he never stopped learning. Very well-read, he'd carry on spirited debates wherever life took him - in barnyards, on the rails or in the lumber camps of Northern Ontario. Serving overseas for six years during the Second World War, he marched through Sicily as part of the 1st Canadian Army (Royal Canadian Regiment) and saw active duty all through the Italian Campaign and the Liberation of Holland. Upon his return to Canada, Harold married Alice Effie Brown. The Co-op movement became his passion as he watched fellow servicemen struggle to find their place in a post-war society. In 1956, Harold and Alice settled in Ayr and later became the owners of Ghent's Home Hardware in Preston, where Harold was a King Street fixture. An activist even in retirement, he took the principles learned in his years with the Co-op to the Cree reservations of Northern Ontario. With a passion for the poor, he and Alice spent eight years working with Latin American Missions at the Roblealto Orphanage in Costa Rica. Several more years were spent collecting and planting trees native to Ontario on his property in Ayr. On buying his last chainsaw at ninety and when questioned about his safety in using it, Harold replied, "How many 90-year-olds have you heard of that died from using a chain saw?" Harold was always very active in the ministry of the church, both at Forward Baptist Church in Cambridge and later at Maranatha Baptist Church in Paris. The last of his generation, Harold was predeceased by his seven brothers and sisters, two infant grandsons, and Alice, his wife of 61 years. Failing eyesight, diminished hearing and physical limitations after two strokes in 2005 only deepened Dad's desire to "go home". Now he has regained his sight, his hearing, his limitations are gone and he is with his dearest companions. At Dad's request, cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held at Forward Baptist Church, 455 Myers Rd., Cambridge on Thursday, March 4th, 7-9 p.m., and Friday morning, 10-11 a.m., followed by a Celebration of his life from 11-12 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Fairview Mennonite Home, which became a second home for them. And now they are perfect together.

12721 Tribute Paid to Dr. Gibson, Many Attend Last Rites Sun.

People from all walks of life filled St. James Lutheran Church Sunday afternoon for the funeral of the late Dr. C. E. Gibson, Mayor of Elmira for the past nine and a half years. Dr. Gibson died Thursday night in K-W Hospital, following a heart seizure in his office earlier in the day. He had been in ill health for about two weeks and had several minor attacks prior to a serious attack late Thursday night. His attending physician was Dr. LeRoy Wagner of Elmira. A native of Schomberg, Ont., and son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Harry J. Gibson, Dr. Gibson attended Kitchener-Waterloo Collegiate and was a commissioned officer in the Canadian Air Force during World War I. Following the First Great War he attended the Royal College of Dental Surgeons, University of Toronto and after his graduation he set up practice in Elmira. His marriage to Hilda Fraser Small, who survives took place in 1930. Also surviving are one sister, Mrs. Charles (Irene) Woodhull of Windsor and one brother, Byrle H., of Toronto. He was a member of St. James Lutheran Church since he has resided in Elmira. He and his sister donated the amplifying system used for the chimes in memory of their parents. He was never on town council as a councillor but was elected to the mayoralty in 1946. He was returned by acclamation each succeeding year except in 1950 when he contested the election and won. An active sportsman, he was manager of the Elmira Polar Kings hockey team since their organization and accompanied them on nearly all their trips. He had just returned from a fishing trip in the North Bay area a week before his death. He was vice-president of the North Waterloo Liberal association for the past 30 years and was several times nominated as Liberal candidate but refrained from running. He was a member of the Elmira Public Utilities Commission, the Community Service Club, the Board of Trade and the Elmira Branch Canadian Legion. In 1948 he was vice-president of the Elmira Old Boys Reunion Association. Many hours of his own personal time were given during the building of the arena and he was chairman of the Elmira Memorial Arena Commission. The body was at the Dreisinger Funeral Parlor Saturday and Sunday morning when it was removed to St. James Church. Burial was in Elmira Cemetery. Rev. Lloyd Kalbfleisch of Neustadt conducted services Sunday. Rev. Kalbfleisch had been pastor of St. James for 26 years and a good friend of Dr. Gibson. The theme used by Rev. Kalbfleisch was Matthew 22: 21 "They say unto him, Caesar's then saith he, unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's." Rev. Kalbfleisch traced Dr. Gibson's life and paid tribute to the services to the community the late mayor had rendered. Many floral tributes from residents of Elmira and district were displayed. Pallbearers were Alvin Brubacher, Clare Brubacher, Herbert Ainsworth, Otto Weppler, H. W. Fraser and C. Patterson. Honorary pallbearers included members of the Town Council; they were Reeve H. L. Weichel, deputy reeve A. J. Hoffer, Councillors R. J. Cousineau, O. W. Klinck, F. G. Howard, H. V. Howlett and R. J. Taylor.1a

Many Civic Leaders Pay Tribute to Late Dr. Gibson


Tribute was paid the late Elmira Mayor, Dr. C. E. Gibson by members of the council and by members of the community as a whole after the hearing of his death. "In the passing of our esteemed Mayor, Dr. C. Ellsworth Gibson, I know that I am expressing the sentiments of the members of town council, all the citizens of Elmira and district, when I say that his death came as a distinct shock to the community," said Reeve H. L. Weichel. In his capacity as Chief Magistrate of this town he was devoted to the duties of his office and displayed a variety of gifts. The ability to meet many problems facing a man in his position during the past decade were recognized and deeply appreciated by all, said Reeve Weichel. The keen interest which he exercised in sport will be sadly missed. In short - his kindly counsel in municipal life - his outstanding service to the community will stand as a living tribute to his great zeal and energy put forth in our behalf, he said. "We thank God for having endowed him with so many fine talents and feel that Elmira and the community are much richer because Dr. Gibson lived and served in Elmira, Mr. Weichel said. Adding Dr. Gibson was a public spirited citizen in the true sense of the word and was held in high and affectionate esteem by all who were privileged to know him. Councillor W. A. Lichty said that Dr. Gibson's death was a great loss to the community and that he was one of the most qualified citizens for the position he held as chief magistrate of the town of Elmira. Councillor R. J. Cousineau said Elmira will not have a more qualified Mayor for some time to come than the late Dr. Gibson. "I can proudly say he was a very close personal friend," he said. H. A. Blair, chairman of the board of health said "We've never had a mayor like him for the work accomplished when he was in office." F. C. Forwell, vice-chairman of the Elmira District High School board said Elmira lost a very valuable citizen when Dr. Gibson died. "We never had a mayor that was so generous with his personal time devoted to civic projects," Mr. Forwell said. Owen Watt, president of the Elmira Junior Chamber of Commerce said that "Dr. Gibson was held in high esteem by the Jaycees, not only in Elmira but in the district." "He will be a hard man to replace," Mr. Watt said.2a

___________________________

Elizabeth Gibson, the first superintendent of the Galt Hospital, was born in Galt, one of six children of David Gibson and Sarah Jamieson. She attended the Toronto Hospital School of Nursing at a time when the school was in its infancy and in December 1889 was hired by the trustees of the Galt Hospital to serve as the Lady Superintendent of the hospital. She took on this responsibility at a time when it was the opinion of many in the town that the hospital was a needless and useless expense since there were no poor or homeless in the town. As the first superintendent Miss Gibson became a leader in changing the opinion of many about the usefulness of a local hospital and was instrumental in establishing the Galt Hospital as a reputable institution. When the hospital opened in 1891 her staff consisted of three domestics, a caretaker and two student nurses. In return for a salary of $240 per year, Miss Gibson took on the duties of secretary, treasurer, admitting and discharging officer, dispenser, head nurse and housekeeper. The rules and regulations governing behaviour in the Galt Hospital submitted by Miss Gibson and adopted by the Board of Trustees demonstrated her professional knowledge of hospitals and their administration. Although some of the rules now appear outdated, some of them are not so different to those in place today. Nurses were always to keep themselves clean and neat and to conduct themselves in a quiet, orderly and kind manner at all times. In 1895, after serving five years as superintendent at the Galt Hospital, Miss Gibson resigned. She stated at the time that although she loved her work, she was "worked and worn out", and needed the time to care for her semi-invalid father. He father died two years later and Miss Gibson moved west and became a deaconess and missionary in the Presbyterian church. She was admitted to Ewart College in 1910 and graduated on April 4, 1911. She then served in Grosvenor and Cooke's Churches. Miss Gibson retired as a deaconess in 1936 and entered Belmont Nursing Home in Toronto where she died in January 1942.2a

12727 John Liddle Gibson was born in Berlin in the late 1870s and during his early years lived in the Spring Valley area.

His illustrious hockey career started about 1897 as a player on the Berlin team, the first to win the OHA. Intermediate championship. He later played in the Senior Series. Being then considered one of the game's best players, he was invited to organize a professional league in Northern Michigan. He moved to Houghton to do so and play for that city. Teams were formed in other area cities. Other prominent players were imported from Canada. The area was "hockey mad," the quality of hockey was good and exciting. Gibson proved to be a capable organizer and again a star player in his new environment. He graduated from the Detroit Dental College and opened an office in Houghton where he practiced until moving to Calgary in 1909.

Gibson excelled in other sports. For several years he starred on the famous Berlin Ranger Football (soccer) team, also on the Berlin Baseball team. Amongst the many fine athletes native to this area, he undoubtedly was one of the greatest.

He served in the Canadian Forces during World War I and was wounded in 1916. He died in Calgary in 1954.1a

12751 Death of William Gies - A sudden and unexpected death took place Sunday evening, when William Gies a resident of St. Clements, expired very suddenly. He, with his wife and some friends, went after supper to visit a neighbor, Mr. George Brenner, and while seated with the rest talking as usual, he suddenly gave signs of expiring. All efforts to restore him were of no avail, and it was soon apparent that death had set in. Deceased was 68 years of age. He was born in Wellesley township and was a resident of this district nearly all his life. In former years he was a heavy land owner, being the possessor of the large farms now occupied and owed by his sons, Wm. V. Gies, John Gies and Conrad Gies. For many years he resided on the farm of the latter. Some eight years ago he took up his residence in St. Clements, where he lived a retired life. His jovial figure will be greatly missed. He leaves a widow, five sons and three daughters, who have our profound sympathy in their bereavement. The funeral took place Tuesday and was largely attended.1a

12765 Remembering Cookie Gilchrist

KITCHENER \emdash The year was 1955 and Lublin's Fruit Market stood near the corner of Fairview Avenue and King Street East in Kitchener. My mother, Betty, worked there part time, trying to help her husband, Walter, pay the $11,500 mortgage on our family's new home on Chelsea Road.

A young man entered the store and said hello to Betty. She had seen him several times before and knew that he lived across the street in a boarding house. His name was Cookie and he was handsome with a perpetual smile, six feet, three inches tall and solidly built at 200-plus pounds.

Betty soon learned that Cookie bought fruit each day at Lublin's because the lady who ran his boarding house was a bad cook and that left him hungry. He played football for the Kitchener-Waterloo Dutchmen of the Ontario Rugby Football Union and wanted to find a better place to stay.....In 1963, Cookie joined Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the famous March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. He was accompanied by the singer Diana Ross on one arm and an actress on the other. He was honoured many years later when his name was mentioned in a Nov. 10, 2008 article titled Here Are The People That Obama Can Now Thank, written by Andy Dabilis, managing editor of the New Europe, a weekly news journal. It listed the names of many people who had contributed to the U.S. civil rights movement over the years....Today's younger generations do not know about Carlton Chester (Cookie) Gilchrist. I consider myself fortunate to have known him. I admire and respect him because he lived his life standing up for his beliefs \emdash and doing so in a time when being coloured meant you were often denied basic rights that most of us take for granted. And I sometimes wonder what kind of football and financial rewards he could have achieved were he playing today....by Larry Scholtis1a
