Jeannette "Janet" Hawke
 
12002 The Hawke family were amongst the earliest settlers in this southeast corner of the township. Benjamin Hawke, the head of the family, came to Yonge Street from Pennsylvania about the year 1811, his wife being a sister of Samuel Lount, who was executed after the Rebellion. During the war of 1812-15, Mr. Hawke was the contractor for hauling the cannons and supplies passing through Holland Landing, and across the portage from the Head of Kempenfeldt Bay to the Nottawasaga River. His sons, along with himself, settled in King and Tecumseth townships in the twenties, when the parts around Lloydtown and Schomberg were opening for settlement. He was one of the canidates to represent the County of Simcoe at the election for the Assembly in 1834, but was not successful. He was appointed a justice of the peace in 1843. He was lame, and in his day had a full share of the rugged experiences of frontier and pioneer life. Periphen Hawke, was taken prisoner during the Rebellion disturbances of 1837, and, after five months' imprisonment, was pardoned, according to the list of persons arrested appearing in Lindsay's Life of W.L. Mackenzie. And it is said that Gabriel Hawke, of Tecumseth, was also taken prisoner during the Rebellion, although his name does not appear in that list. Gabriel was a large, powerful man, and well-known in the early days of the Township of Tecumseth. Some part of the Hawke family moved to the Township of Wellesley, County of Waterloo, where the village of Hawkesville is named after them.

In about 1846 Benjamin Hawk Sr., his wife Mary (Lount) Hawk, and the families of their five sons and four daughters moved from Simcoe County to unsettled land in Wellesley Township, Waterloo County. The area was known as the "Queen's Bush." The community where they settled became Hawkesville. These Hawk families included Benjamin Jr. and Mary (Dean) Hawk and John and Martha (Dean) Hawk. John Hawk built the first gristmill in the vicinity of Hawkesville, and his brother Percifer Hawk built the first sawmill. There are numerous instances where verifiable members of this family, in some cases even the same person, spelled their name Hawk or Hawke. On at least one early map the town was named Hawksville

12017 THE WOOLWICH COUNCIL

A Woolwich Township Council was organized on January 21st, 1850. The councillors were: John Meyer, Edward Passmore, Peter Wenger, Peter Hay, and Wm. Veitch. They met "at Conestoga, in Kurtz's tavern." The members chose John Meyer as reeve and named James Dow as clerk and treasurer; Moses Springer as assessor on the east side of the Grand River and Christian Hurst on the west wide, each at 6 pounds ($24) a year; and Wm. Reynolds as collector, with a salary of five and a half per cent. of his collections. Charles Hendry was appointed auditor.

The council ordered a seal and studied a plan for building a bridge across the Conestoga River; appointed a road surveyor and considered the advisability of appointing a local superin-tendent of schools. For a number of years schools, bridges, roads, and the regulation of taverns were the chief items of business.

Waterloo County's provisional municipal council met in Berlin on May 3rd, 1852. Woolwich was represented by Reeve John Meyer and Deputy-Reeve Peter Wenger.1a

Galt Machine Knife Works

Among the many industries for which Galt is noted none have contributed more than the Galt Machine Knife Works, owned by Peter Hay. His manufactory has become a household word to the users of all kinds of machine knives, planers, moulding, shingle, tennon and mitre knives. In all parts of the Dominion where knives are used they are to be found. Mr. Hay's patronage is well deserved, wide as it is, as nothing inferior to the best is turned out. As a citizen he enjoys the confidence of his townsmen and is highly esteemed.2a

Peter Hay, Manufacturer of Machine Knives - The business conducted by Mr. Peter Hay is one of the many specialties in which the manufacturing industries of Galt abound. The business was established four years ago, and since its inception has made remarkable progress, the trade now extending throughout the entire Dominion. Mr. Hay manufactures all kinds of machine knives, for wood-working machines, leather splitting, paper cutting, etc. The quality of steel used by him is of the best, and the tempering and finish are unexcelled. His reputation in this respect throughout the Dominion is unexcelled. The premises occupied by him are 75x75 feet in dimensions and 2 stories in height, substantially built of stone, where employment is furnished to twelve competent and skillful workmen. For running the machinery there is a twenty-five horse power engine and one boiler. Mr. Hay is the only manufacturer in this line of goods west of Montreal, and his trade in consequence is very extensive throughout Ontario and the west. Mr. Hay is a native of Scotland, and inherits all the genuine traits of character inherent in the Scottish nature. He is a gentleman held in high esteem in the community.3a

It says Nancy Anne Featherstone was a model from Toronto who was 9 or 10 years old at the time. She was not the first Dutch Girl though, since the earlier logo created in 1936, had both a Dutch Boy and a Dutch Girl with the girl portrayed by Joyce Volker, daughter of Howard Volker, who was Schneider's Sales Manager at the time, and the boy by Ewart (Bud) Hayes, son of Cyril Hayes who was Schneider's Credit Manager. The Dutch Girl symbol was registered as a trademark in 1955.1a

12025 In memory of Robert Hays, Esq., J.P.

"This gentleman died at his residence, in McKillop, in the County of Huron, Canada, on the 18th inst., aged 80 years. He had been a long time in an infirm state and his death was not an unlooked event. His funeral took place on Sunday the 19th, and the procession was fully 3/4 of a mile in length, the largest ever seen in McKillop. He was interred in the Harphurhey burying ground. He leaves five sons and two daughters and his aged partner in life, behind him. One of his sons, as is well known, is the ex-Registrar for North Huron, and also an ex-M.P.P., and by profession a lawyer. As the deceased gentleman was a man of some note, a more lenghtened notice seems to be demanded. He was born near Londonderry, Ireland, somewhere about the year 1794, and when a boy, went to the Parish School of Comwell, where he received a fair education. When about 24 years of age he married, and his father dying about this time, divided his farm between his two sons, hence the subject of this memoir went to farming, and married about the same time. He continued in this occupation for about five years, during which time he was strongly impressed with the injustice of the tithe system and the oppressive taxation which burdened the people. He told an old friend that while working one day in the field, he began to think that surely there was a freer and better country somewhere, where a poor man would not be kept down by oppressive taxation. His resolution was taken. He threw down the spade with which he was working, sold his farm, and never wrought another day in his native country.

Before leaving Ireland, he went six months to the Grammar School of Letterkenny. He then went to the United States, leaving his wife and family in the meantime in Ireland, until he would make a home for them on this side of the Atlantic. He went to the States and engaged in the milling business with his wife's uncle, General (George) McLure, who fought in the war of 1812. Here he remained for a few years after which he went to Rochester and engaged in milling again for three or four years. On the whole, his milling operations were not successful, for though an active, industrious, honest, painstaking man, he did not nearly receive the pay which he was promised for his labor. This at first disheartened him. At this time he sent for his wife and family, having resolved to make America his future home. He next came to Canada and bought a farm near Ingersol, and united with it the business of tanning. After four years residence in Ingersoll he removed to the village now known as Haysville; the place having been named after him. Here he bought 200 ares of land, and built a mill and made the village. Here he remained for about 8 years, being somewhat discouraged at times by his mill dam being carried awway. He sold out in Haysville and bought 200 acres of land in McKilop, where he spent the remainder of his days. He has been, we believe, about 30 years a resident of McKillop, and during about 25 of that time he has been a magistrate, and one of the clearest headed and best we have ever had, and of him it can be said what can be said of but few, that though his decisions were frequently appealed from no appeal was ever sustained. He sat in the County Council as Reeve for quite a number of years, when we believe McKillop, Hullett, Morris, Grey and Howick were in one municipality, and old settlers maintain that the business of the country as fully as well transacted then as it as ever been since. He was always a staunch advocate of Common School Education, and was the first, we understand, to advocate the taxation of property for that purpose. His ideas became law, and a certain amount was rated on the propety, and since then the principle has been gradually extended until the Free School system has become universal. While in the County Council he advocated the taxing of the wild lands of the Canada Company, which also became law; but for this he was looked upon with enmity by that powerful Corporation. He was always a friend of Temperance, and no man, from his earliest days until his death, ever saw him the worse of liquor. As a public speaker, he was too nervous and excitable to succeed well when he was opposed by calm, cool heads; but when unopposed and uninterrupted he could express his ideas in good plain language and reason well. In politics he was a rather extreme Reformer, up to the time his son ran for member. At this time he was very much annoyed at his old neighbors voting against his son, and from that time he never acted with the Reform Party. In religion, he was a Prespyterian. He was always a firm believer in the grand truths of Christianity. Reverence for the Bible, the Sabbath day, and a detestation of profanity were strong features of his character. Several years ago he had an apoplectic attack which impaired his intellect, and for a time he lost the power of speech. He knew that his intellectual powers were failing, and resigned his office as Treasurer of the Township, and his commission as J.P., recommending at the same time several younger and more active men, who were appointed by his advice. From this time he was preparing for death, as he knew that the sands of life were almost run. We believe he died the death of a true Christian, and of him it might be said - "Mark the perfect and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace.""1a

The paper was published weekly on Saturdays, but much of the credit for the regular appearance goes to Peter Jaffray who went on in 1846 to establish the Galt Reporter.1a

________________________

With great sadness we announce the death of Michael Hearn. He died suddenly at St. Mary's Hospital on Monday, January 6, 2014 due to complications of heart surgery.

Michael was 75 and will be deeply missed by his wife Mary Liz, his daughters Colleen and Kathleen and grandchildren Ben and Megan. He was predeceased by his parents Maurice and Eleanor Hearn, brother Jim Hearn and sister Betty Payne.

Michael was a Superintendent of Business for the Waterloo Regional School Board. For 31 years he worked very hard to ensure schools were safe and effective learning centres. Another big priority in his life was playing bridge with his friends. He rarely missed the weekly game in 45 years. In 1998 he retired from the Board, taking time to travel, hike with friends, play more tennis and join community groups; the K-W Optimist Club and the Kitchener-Waterloo Gyro Club.

In 1983, Michael built his dream home on Sunfish Lake. This is where he was happiest: cutting the lawn, raking leaves and hanging out on the dock with family and friends.

We invite you to share memories of Michael at the visitation on Monday, January 13, 2014 from 1:30 \endash 3:30 pm or 6:30 - 8:30 pm at the Erb and Good Family Funeral Home in Waterloo. The funeral service will take place on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 at 11:00 am at St. Michael RC Church on University Ave. in Waterloo, followed by a reception in the church basement.

In lieu of flowers we ask donations to be given to the St. Mary's Cardiac Unit or the Walter Bean Trail, Grand River Conservation Foundation. Arrangements for donations may be made through the funeral home at www.erbgood.com or 519-745-8445.

In 1960 the storefront here was home to Hearth Radio. Owner Eugene Hearth sold radios, televisions and other electrical appliances here for only about a year, but he was in business elsewhere in downtown Waterloo for more than four decades, starting in 1936.

In 1982, four years before his death, Hearth was interviewed by The Record and described how in 1949 he had purchased the first TV in Waterloo \emdash it had a seven-inch screen \emdash and used a friend's antenna to pick up images from a Buffalo television station.

"There were about a dozen people there," Hearth said. "We all wondered what we would see. We hooked it up and got a picture. It wasn't 100 per cent, but it showed what television could do."1a

12040 THE CO-OPERATIVE CIGAR CO.

Manufacturers of the popular brands : Cobalt, 10c; Lustig, 5c; Try Me, 5c; Right Idea, 5c.


The Co-Operative Cigar Co. is a hustling young firm who broke into business life about a year ago. The business is run on the Co-Operative principle and has made a marked success in the manufacturing field. The seven principals of the Company are all young men who have served their full time at cigar making. Every one is practical and being interested puts the very best thought and care into each cigar. Herein lies the secret of the fine reception the public has given every successive brand brought out-the cigars were made right. A number of hands are employed besides the gentlemen named below, making the shop the largest in town at the present time. The first cigar put on the market was the "Lustig," a five cent article, followed shortly after by a 10c smoke called "Cobalt." Both became favorites and have remained so. Recently two other brands : "Try Me" and "Right Idea" have proved equally popular. The members of the Co-Operative Cigar Co. are :-G. Holtze, President ; H. Painter, Secretary ; J. H. Wuest, Treasurer ; F. Lutzkowski, Manager, and S. Wellheuser, C. Hebel, and C. Hueglin.1a

1aThe Biographical History of Waterloo Township, Ezra Eby 
Christian Heckendorn
 
12045 Following: "The Trail Of The Conestoga" !

*Our pioneer ancestor,JACOB HECKENDORN journeyed to Canada from a depressed Pennsylvania in 1822, as a bachelor with other hardy, adventurous Mennonites travelling, some by horseback, some walking on foot and others by their covered wagons, known as 'the Conestoga Wagon', named after the locale in Pennsylvania where they were first built. They were hoping to find good rich, low cost farming land on which to settle and build their new farms. It would be out of the virgin forests along the banks of the Grand River in Waterloo County.

*It was here that young Jacob decided to 'set his roots' and purchased 224 acres of land located in the German Company Tract from Peter Eby in 1825. The farm lot, known as GCT31S (German Company Tract,Lot 31, south half) was located partly on what today is known as Fischer-Hallman Road in Waterloo, Ontario.

*Jacob and his young wife MARY MILLER, raised their seven children on this farm which in 1971, at the time of the publishing of "The Heckendorn Family History and Genealogy" book by Vera Hallman Hunsberger, was still standing. The home, famed for it's high narrow windows in the upstairs and it's large wooden frame barn on the west side of Hallman Road, would certainly be out of place with the commercial plaza now on the west corner and the suburban homes surrounding the area today.

*The David Eby Cemetery, located on the south-east corner of Erb Street West and Fischer-Hallman Road, contains several Heckendorn markers, some with their inscriptions wiped out by weather and time, but two are yet very readable. They are Joseph Heckendorn's and that of his wife, Elizabeth Reist. Joseph, b. 07 Sept. 1836 d. 15 Nov. 1886 ,2nd. son of Jacob and Mary Miller, has inscribed on his marker below his name, the following, "Infant Heckendorn" and below "dau.Heckendorn" . Next to his marker is that of Elizabeth his wife, on which is inscribed; "Elizabeth Reist 1841-1936 wife of Joseph Heckendorn and Samuel S. Snider."

The grave site of the author Vera Hallman Hunberger is also located here in the front row, next to a short driveway, just a few head-stones north of the Heckendorn markers.

I. JACOB HECKENDORN b. 02 June 1803 PA. d. 16 May 1892, Waterloo Co.. *Jacob met Mary MILLER, from Cumberland Co. PA., in Waterloo Co., married her 10 Nov. 1833. Mary was b. 06 June 1806 d. 15 Sept. 1867, daughter of Jacob Miller b. 1777, Montgomery Co. PA., d. 1853 Waterloo Co. Ont. Canada and Magdelena BRICKER, b. 1784 Lancaster Co. PA., d. 1853 Waterloo Co. Ont. Canada. Jacob Miller and Magdelena Bricker had five children, and the family emigrated to Waterloo Co. in 1825.

*2nd.m.According to: 'Ontario Marriage Reg. # 012368, 1890' "JACOB HACKEDORN, 81 (*87) yrs.,living in Waterloo Town, born PA, Widower, s/o Christian and Christina Hackedorn, married Elizabeth KURTZE, 53 yrs., widow, living in Waterloo Town, b. Grosch, Hessen, Ger, d/o Heinrich and Christine Hess. Witnesses: Martin Schmidt/Caroline Wurster. Sen. of Preston. 14 August 1890 Preston, Ontario. Groom: Mennonite, Bride: Lutheran. Rev. Wurster." *Correct age.

*The JACOB HECKENDORN/MARY MILLER family, of seven sons and one daughter are listed within this Family History, as recorded in "The Heckendorn Family History and Genealogy" compiled by the Late Vera Hallman Hunsberger,(except for two sons), with additional information and comments by yours truly.
The children of Jacob Heckendorn and Mary 'Polly' Miller (Muller)
were: John, Joseph, Jacob M., Veronica, Christian, Menno, Danie.

BIRTH DATES HAVE BEEN REMOVED THROUGHOUT THIS LISTING, FOR THE PERSONAL SECURITY OF THOSE DESCENDANTS CONSIDERED TO BE LIVING AT THE INCEPTION OF THIS "FAMILY HISTORY".

II.JOHN HECKENDORN b.*22 Jan. 1835 d. 08 Dec. 1916. married Mary Huber Good, 27 June 1856; b. 29 Dec. 1837, d. 28 Feb. 1921. *John and Mary were my ggrandparents.

John and Mary lived on his father Jacob's farm for a few years as a day-labourer, and several of their children were born there. After leaving the home-farm, they moved to Maryborough township just above Moorefield where they farmed. Later, they lived in Conestoga for some time and finally retired near Breslau. There were twelve children born to this family and all were faithful members of the Mennonite church. They were as follows: Anna(Nancy); Veronica(Franey); Moses *(my grandfather); Barbara; Mary Ann; Leah; Noah; Ezra; Susannah; Lydiann; Israel, and an infant son born and died 23 March 1874.

Mary Huber Good's mother, was Barbara HUBER, b.6 June 1809 in PA, and she at the young age of thirteen, travelled with her parents and other families also from Pennsylvania, to Waterloo County in 1822. There is the possiblity that our Jacob may have travelled with the same group.
Mary's father, Benjamin GOOD b. 24 Nov. 1809, arrived in Waterloo Co.in 1831 at the age of twenty-two and two years later he and Barbara were married. There were two children born into this union, Mary and her older brother Peter, b. 28 Dec. 1835. Mary was at the very tender age of three weeks, when her mother died in Jan. 1838. Benjamin remarried to Barbara Berge b. 19 Sept. 1813 and they had ten children between 1840/1856. The large Huber home located in the present city of Cambridge, was located between the then towns of Preston and Galt, and it was later renovated into apartments and was still inhabited in the mid 1970's.

II. JOSEPH HECKENDORN b. 07 Sept. 1836 d. 15 Nov. 1886. m. Elizabeth REIST 3 Oct. 1865, b. 1841, d .1936, d/o Daniel Reist & Leah ?.
After Joseph's death, Elizabeth married Samuel S. Snider. *Both Joseph and Elizabeth are buried side by side in the David Eby Cemetery in Waterloo. We only know of and surmise that there were just the two children as listed on Joseph's headstone.

II. CHRISTIAN HECKENDORN b. 04 June 1843 d. 28 Aug. 1922. m. Annie BEARINGER, 21 May 1868, b. 09 Sept. 1848 d. 15 July 1902, d/o David Bearinger & Catharina Lorenz. One daughter, Lydia was born to Christian and Annie, 02 May 1869 d. 28 Aug. 1922.
Christian remarried to Sarah Litchy Bauman, 16 Oct. 1910. She was b. 08 Apr. 1858 d. 04 Sept. 1938.

II. JACOB M. HECKENDORN b.1 March 1839 d. ?, married Mary SANBURN (Sandborne) 7 June 1868, b. 1842 d.?, d/o William Sanburn & Elizabeth Kuhner. They had ten children as listed: Sarah; Jesse: Ezra; Lucinda; May; Dan; William; Emma; Clara; Edith.
III. WILLIAM H. HECKENDORN b. August 22, 1880 Woolwich Twsp., d. January 10, 1956, interred in Elmira Cemetery m. Clara KLINCK.Members St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Elmira. Children, 2.

II. MENNO HECKENDORN b. 13 Jan. 1845 d. 29 June 1921. Married Lucy Clemmer b. 13 Dec. 1848 d. 12 May 1889. Menno remarried to Elizabeth BERGY b. 06 May 1860 d. 09 Feb. 1946. Menno and Elizabeth had two children,* Ella Viola and Clayton.

II. VERONICA HECKENDORN b.18 March 1841 d. ? Married Isaac STAUFFER and they had three children; Albert; Mary Ann; Isabelle. There is a listing for a Veronica interred at the Detweiler Mennonite Cemetery, Roseville, Ont., but it is Veronica (Franey), daughter of John and Mary (Good) Heckendorn, who married George Hallman.

II. * DANIEL HECKENDORN b. 13 Dec. 1847 d. 20 Sept. 1867. Buried in Martin's Mennonite Cemetery, Waterloo, Ont. with parents and other members of family. At this time, we have no information regarding Daniel other than the above as he was not listed as a member of the family in the 'original' genealogy history book.


We will proceed with the descendants of JOHN, CHRISTIAN, *JACOB (what little information we have), and MENNO HECKENDORN families, *and if possible VERONICA (HECKENDORN) STAUFFER'S family.
JOSEPH, as earlier mentioned, died at 50 yrs. and was buried with the two children and we know of no others. DANIEL was just "discovered" and we assume he died unmarried, as he died at 19 yrs. old.

My wife and I supplied the music for their evening dance. Donald Eitel, an old neighbour and the chap that was hired to replace me when I left Carlings, was awarded his 25 Year pin that evening. Jokingly, I reminded him it was because of me that he was able to receive it.

Suicide in Waterloo Township - On Monday morning last, as we learn from the Berlin News, a well-known farmer, named Joseph Heckendorn, living two miles west of the Town of Waterloo, committed suicide. He was in the house at eleven when he went to the barn to feed his stock. At noon his wife called him for dinner but received no answer. She then went to the barn and to her horror found him hanging in the threshing floor the rope being fastened to the hayfork. He was 47 years old, well to do, and leaves a large family. The wife told our informant, that he belonged to the old Mennonites. ON Saturday last he "converted himself," and having had a grudge against his brother-in-law, at Conestogo, couldn't rest till he had made up with him, which he did that Saturday evening. On Sunday he talked a good deal on religion. He said he wouldn't kill himself, but didn't think he'd live long. If he died they were not to worry, as he'd be safe. The wife thought his mind must have been unsound.2a

12059 Louis Hedderich was one of our well known citizens, and a public man in his way, for he ran the village sprinkling wagon for many years. This tankwagon, usually a bright blue in color, was his own manufacture, and had a number of ingenious contrivances to add to its usefulness or otherwise. A huge umbrella shaded his wagon seat on hot summer days, and he had an arrangement by which a whistle chirped merrily, musically and constantly when the sprinkler was sprinkling. He secured his water supply from the mineral spring where some enterprising villagers one time bored for oil or salt and secured a wonderful flow of mineral water. A bellows attached to the wagon was used to blow a horn that called the village clerks from the shops with their pails and pitchers, to get a supply of drinking water. The same horn was used to call out the bartender, when he operated it at one of the hotels, and the dispenser of drinks, recognizing the signal, came out with a schooner of beer and emptied it into a mug which Mr. Hedderich carried, and this saved an extra trip for him. The sprinkling was paid for by subscription, each business man along the business part of King Street, contributing a certain amount each year. Mr. Hedderich did his collecting in the beginning of the year, and made his call an annual social visit as well.

He was a gun and locksmith, and an expert in repairing clocks and other articles of household use. His workshop on North King Street was an interesting bit of architecture, owing to the fact that Mr. Hedderich used a church in his native village in Germany as a model when he built it, and it had all the appearance of a small church, with tower clock that struck the hours, steeple and all.

His wife was a very useful citizen as well, and was widely known and in great demand as an experienced nurse and midwife. I believe it was her proud boast that she officiated at something like two thousand stork parties during her busy life here. Mr. and Mrs. Hedderich were in Waterloo in the early 50's, or possibly sooner, and resided here for many years until their passing at advanced ages.1a

12103 Family forgives woman who killed their sister, mother and friend

KITCHENER Minutes after Clare Stemp was sentenced for careless driving and received a $2,000 fine along with a two-year driving suspension, the family of Diane Serroul, who died when Stemp's car hit her, approached Stemp one-by-one, hugged her and told her they forgave her.

The first one in line was Serroul's 24-year-old son Ryan Billard.

"I told her: 'I forgive you and everybody deserves a second chance,' " Billard said outside the courtroom Friday.

Serroul's sister Monica Hein and her mother Elsie Hein, both dressed in purple '97 it was Serroul's favourite colour '97 hugged Stemp, who choked back tears and repeatedly thanked the family for their kindness.

Stemp's mother hugged Serroul's mother and both women cried. Many in the packed courtroom cried, including court staff. Serroul's husband Kevin also spoke to Stemp.

All the seats in the courtroom were filled with some people standing at the back. Family, friends and some of Serroul's teacher colleagues came to show their support.

Serroul was a kindergarten teacher at Winston Churchill Public School in Waterloo.

On April 24, 2014, Serroul, who was 50 at the time, was walking on a sidewalk on Bearinger Road between Albert Street and Parkside Drive at about 4:15 p.m., just after the end of the school day.

A 1995 Toyota Corolla driven by 30-year-old Clare Stemp drove into a bicycle lane, mounted the curb and struck Serroul, causing her to fly into the air and land on a small hill.

She was taken to Grand River Hospital and later airlifted to Hamilton General Hospital where she was on life support with serious head and internal injuries. She died on May 2.....

12114 The Heintzman Co. firm was incorporated in 1866 in Toronto, Ontario by Theodore August Heintzman, who was born in Berlin, 19 May 1817, and who emigrated to Canada in 1860, following a brief residence in New York . The story that Heintzman worked in the same Berlin piano factory as (and emigrated from Germany with) Henry E. Steinway, who went on to found Steinway & Sons, is unconfirmed, but is typical of comparisons that were often later made between the instruments that their two firms produced.

Following his arrival in Toronto, Heintzman began to produce pianos from his residence (he is said to have worked initially from his kitchen) and then went on to open his first factory at 23 Duke St. By May 1868 Heintzman had relocated operations to 105 King St W and was soon turning out more than 60 pianos a year. By 1873 the company had moved to 115-17 King St W where there was space for a factory, offices, and sales rooms. The company was operated by Theodore Heintzman until his death in 1899, when his sons took over operation of the company.

Theodore Heintzman's nephew, Gerhard Heintzman, was also a piano maker, and when Gerhart died in 1926, Heintzman & Co. continued to operate Gerhard company for several years. In later years they also produced pianos under the Gerhard Heintzman brand. In the 1920s, when many Canadian piano manufacturers were struggling, Heintzman & Co. also took over the Nordheimer Piano Co , and in later years produced pianos under the Nordheimer name. Heintzman & Co. also produced foot-pumped player pianos although a number of electric pianos have been found to use the Welte reproducing system as well as one surviving example of an ArtEcho reproducing system. Over the years, Heintzman produced pianos were sold under several brands names, and Heintzman also sold pianos produced for them by other piano manufacturers. Heintzman's top pianos were produced under the "Heintzman & Company" brand, with the "Gerhard Heintzman" brand being next, then the "Nordheimer" brand. Brands that were produced for them, and sold with a "From Heintzman & Company" decal were Gerhard, Weber, Stevenson1a

12129 CHRISTIAN HEISE
Christian Heise came to Canada in 1804 and died in 1830. He was the first deacon of the Tunker church organized in 1808. His wife, Fanny, died in 1814 and was one of the first to be buried in Heise Hill cemetery. The next generation \endash John Heise. There were three daughters and one son in the family. One daughter married Bishop Samuel Baker, another married Peter Doner and the third became the wife of Geo. Brillinger. The son, Christian, married Nancy Witmer of Waterloo district. Called a mother in Israel, she was a good singer and often started the hymns. She was a staunch member of the Tunker church. Christian Heise was gifted in making up poetry and often wrote verses for obituaries and also on other lines. His house was one of the oldest and was one of the places where the general conferences were held, They held meetings there every sixteen weeks. The first Love feast in their barn was in 1857. In 1861 and 1867, Bishop Samuel Baker, his brother-in-law, also gave his barn for Love feasts. In those early days the barns afforded more accommodation. The first Love feast was held in 1851. Another brother-in-law gave his house and barn for similar meetings as did George Brillinger. Christian Heise had three sons and one daughter. The sons were Jacob, John and David, and a daughter, Betsy, were all church members. The daughter married Alfred Brillinger. Jacob united with the Methodist faith and lived at Stouffville. He was a skilled carpenter and business man. He operated the planing mill. D. W. Heise became a carpenter, skilled in his work and he and his brother, Jacob, built many houses and barns. D. W. Heise kept a store at Bethesda for a number of years and was the first promoter of the Bethesda and Stouffville Telephone Co. and held this position until his death in 1937. He became interested in bees and made a success in this business. In 1914 he was elected a minister of the Tunker church at Heise Hill. They commissioned him to mission work and he traveled a great deal, visiting India and Africa and other foreign lands. John W. Heise retained the old homestead and was accordingly a good farmer. He became a deacon in 1890 and was greatly reverenced. He contended strongly for things meek and lowly but paid tribute to those in high places as well. It grieved him to see the changing world and new things surging into church life. Today a son, Joseph, lives in that part of the big house that was occupied by his parents and Joseph's son, Russel, occupies the remainder of the house with his family making the sixth generation born there. So we may say "God bless the Heises and the faith they so steadfastly uphold."
Bishop H. R. Heise often used to give out the hymn, 208 in the old hymn book:
0 how happy are they,
Who their Saviour obey,
And have laid up their treasure above.
Tongue can never express,
The sweet comfort and peace,
Of a soul in its earliest love.
This hymn was usually sung after baptismal service when they were leaving the water.
This was one of Jacob Heise's favorite hymns:
Es ist gewislich an der zeit,
Das Gottes Sohn wird kommen,
In Seiner groszen Herrlichkeit,
Zu rickten bos und Frommen,
Dann wird das lacken werden theur,
Wenn alles wird vergehn im feur
Wie Petrus davon schreibet.
Christian Heise, Sr., married Mary Keffer. They came to Markham district and settled on Lot 33 on the third concession. His family was: Annie married George Reanan; Magdeline married John Hilts; Barbara married John Hoover; Fanny married Daniel Horner; John married Elizbeth Hoover. Family of John and Elizabeth (Hoover) Heise: Fanny, John, Christian, Daniel, Jacob, Elizabeth and Christina.
Joseph Heise, brother of Christian, Sr., came to Canada at the age of twenty-eight from Pennsylvania and bought Lot 26 on the eighth concession of Markham, two hundred acres where Lewis Reesor now lives, from Alexander Woods on the 10th of May, 1806, for one hundred and twenty-five pounds. He died in 1841, aged 69 years. He is buried in Wideman's cemetery. John Heise, son of above married Elizabeth Snider who died in 1846. He had two sons and two daughters, Samuel, Sarah, Abraham and Anna. Abraham married Miss Keizer, daughter of Jacob Keizer of West York. He had thirteen children, namely: Lydia, Samuel, Levi, Emmanuel, Alberta, Sarah, Harrison, John, Elizabeth, Isabel, Abraham, Myrtle, and Fred who lives at Elmira. This family was born on the farm where Hugh Boyd now lives.
Jacob, another brother, came to Canada from Pennsylvania in 1805 and bought 200 acres on Lot 26, Con. 3, Markham, from John Kennedy for one thousand dollars. He died in 1832 aged seventy-one years. Hannah, his wife, died in 1846 aged seventy-eight years. They had four children, Barbara, Jacob, Abraham and John. Jacob married Mary Stickley, daughter of Bishop John Stickley, Sr. Their family: Elizabeth, Nancy, Abraham, Jacob and Christopher, twins, John and Daniel. Abraham married Sarah Wideman, Barbara married Mr. Wideman, Sarah married Benjamin Hare, Christina married Peter Lehman, Hannah remained single, Abraham died in 1861 and his wife in 1861. They are buried in Wideman's cemetery. John, son of Jacob, married Anna Shank. To this union were born ten children: Peter, Michael, Abraham, Henry, Fanny, Sarah, Mary, Nancy, Susan and Elizabeth. Elizabeth married Daniel Rhodes of Clarence Centre, N.Y., who was chosen minister of that place. Elizabeth was the daughter of Jacob Heise. Abraham, son of Jacob Heise, died in 1844, aged sixteen years. Jacob married Margaret Smith. He died in 1909 in his eightieth year. Margaret, his wife, died in 1872, aged thirty-six. Christopher married Leah Rhodes of Clarence Centre. They had a family of seven children. Henry, Anna, Mary, Anthony, Sarah, Levi and Leah. Christopher died in 1908, aged seventy-nine years and Leah, his wife, died in 1912, aged eighty-eight years. John married Sarah Rhodes of Clarence Centre. Their family was Louis, Adella and Alice. John died in 1922 in his eighty-fourth year. Daniel married Fanny Rhodes. They had no family. He was a minister at Clarence Centre and was buried there.
I received a lot of this information out of a record that Elder H. R. Heise compiled.
Christopher Heise, son of Jacob Heise, Jr., who was a deacon, married Leah Rhodes of Clarence Centre. He was elected a deacon of Markham district in 1878 and he died in 1908. He had a family of three sons and four daughters, their names are Henry, Anthony, Levi, Mary, Annie, Sarah and Leah. Christopher Heise was a very prosperous farmer, a hard worker and a good manager, a man who could see ahead. He owned one of the best two hundred acre farms in the township. He built the store at Uictoria Square and several houses. He was a well informed man as he did a lot of travelling. He was a man that loved his church and he visited a lot of those who were discouraged and backslidden. He was much interested in his members' temporal welfare as well as the spiritual. The writer well remembers of him coming to my father's house and sitting behind the table with the ministers and would testify to the truth. I well remember him at a prayer meeting at Johnny Byers taking the prayer meeting as there was no minister there. I will never forget how he used to sing. His son, Henry, lived where Harold Heise now lives. He married Jane Schell and was ordained a minister in 1888 by Bishop Jesse Engle of Kansas and was chosen bishop by lot to help Samuel Baker in 1897 until 1911 when he was relieved of his office. He was a good visitor and a staunch believer of the Tunker faith and stood true to his principles. He had a good memory and knew his Bible. He often gave the children Bible verses to memorize which some still remember. Anthony, another son, married Mary Engle, daughter of Bishop Jesse Engle who lived in Brown Co., Kansas. They had a family of five children. He was elected a deacon at that place. Later, his wife died and in 1902 he married Martha Jane Cober, a daughter of John Cober of Pickering township. Levi, another son, married Alice Eyer and got the old homestead. His wife died a number of years ago and he is one of the oldest members, eighty-eight years old. His son, Orla, now owns the two hundred acres. Orla was chosen a deacon and married Catharine Lehman of Carlisle, Pa. She died in 1951. His oldest son, Harold, married Elder Marshall Winger's daughter and Louis married Elder J. H. Heise's daughter. They are both farmers on the home farms. Clarence, Levi's son, married Ruth Brechbell who was a granddaughter of Henry Davidson, bishop, who was first editor of Evangelical Visitor. They were missionaries in India for several years until her health failed. They are now living near Welland.
Wm. Heise married Ida Sider, daughter of Deacon Joseph Sider of Wainfleet. They had a farm at Victoria Square. They had a family of six sons and two daughters. Edgar was chosen deacon at Fordwich. He married Bishop Shoalts' daughter, Ruth.
H. R. Heise, in our church history, said that his grand-father, Jacob Heise, a deacon and Peter Cober, bishop, used to take in the Love feasts every spring and fall at Black Creek, and Waterloo which was one of the largest districts then and Nottawa and Clarence Centre. This was a distance of five or six hundred miles. They would visit the members and as many other people as possible. This was continued for a period of over thirty years. Their trips were made on a one-horse vehicle with wooden springs and a frame covered with a canvas top. No money was accepted for these trips but instead these brethren labored during the winter so they would have means to take these trips during the summer.
Christopher Heise's favorite hymn was:
When I can read my title clear,
To mansions in the skies.
I'll bid farewell to every fear
And wipe my weeping eyes.
Should earth against my soul engage,
And firey darts be hurled,
Then I can smile at Satan's rage
And face a frowning world.
Let cares like a wild deluge come,
Let storms of sorrow fall.
So I but safely reach my home
My God, my heaven, my all.
There shall I bathe my weary soul,
In seas of heavenly rest,
And not a wave of trouble roll,
Across my peaceful breast.
One of bishop Peter Steckley's favorite hymns out of new book:
The burdens of life may be many, the frown of the world may be cold,
To me it mill matter but little when I stand on the streets of gold.
With joy I shall enter the city, the face of my Saviour behold,
And I shall be changed and be like Him when I stand on the streets of gold.
What wonderful visions of beauty, what glorious scenes shall unfold,
What dazzling splendor surround me, when I stand on the street of gold
I'll see the white throne of His glory, The names of the saints there enrolled,
The mansions that Christ is preparing, when I stand on the streets of gold.
Earth's sorrows will all be forgotten, and I shall be safe in the fold,
Shut in with my Lord and His angels when I stand on the streets of gold.
For ages and ages I'll praise Him and never grow weary or old,
Love crowned, I'll bide in His presence when I stand on the streets of gold.

12142 One of the leading musicians of the province and a strikingly successful teacher of music is Mr. Alton H. Heller of Berlin. He is a native of the city. As a citizen he possesses three strong qualities: Intelligence, Courage and Progressiveness. He is still in his prime and may confidently be expected to blaze new paths in local musical circles. As a boy, he early commenced his musical studies. His first teacher was Prof. H. C. Shaw, under whom he studied the piano and organ for several years. Afterwards he proceeded to Detroit and there received tuition from Mr. W. E. Snyder, who was the pupil of the late Wm. H. Sherwood, one of America's greatest teachers of music. Mr. Heller studied Piano, Organ and Theory. He had two years and a half tuition from Dr. Edw. Fisher at Toronto. in Piano and under Dr. A. S. Vogt on the same instrument. He rounded off with a course in Choral Instruction under Dr. Ham of St. James Cathedral, Toronto. Being of a thorough-going, painstaking nature, those years of conscientious study fitted him well for his life-work as a teacher of this Art. One of his pupils is now a teacher in the Hamilton Conservatory of Music, after graduating under him with first class honors. Six more of his graduates are teaching in the Twin City. Sixteen years ago he gave his first public piano recital. Ten years ago. and annually since, he has given highly creditable organ recitals and was the first home musician to make the attempt. Previously, organ recitals were held but talent from other centres was imported to give them. Mr. Heller's were of such a high order, that lovers of music responded freely and encouraged him to continue. He is and for some years has been organist of Zion Evangelical Church and maintains a high standard of efficiency in his work. In addition to his professional proficiency, Mr. Heller possesses good business ability. On other pages are given a good view of his fine studio and residence on Queen Street North.1a

12144 Caspar Heller

Quite unexpectedly on Friday morning, came the news of the sudden death of Mr. Caspar Heller. He had certainly been somewhat unwell for a few days, but not confined to bed. He died sitting on the edge of his bed, without saying a word or uttering one complaint, as a result of exhaustion from abdominal complaints.

The deceased was born in Udenhausen, Hesse-Darmstadt, and came here with his parents in 1843 from Germany, aged 13 years, and helped with clearing the woods and other jobs of the settlers. Somewhat later, he was occupied in Connecticut, and on his return, bought the Royal Hotel in the eastern end of the city, which he managed with great success for many years. Twenty-two years ago, he built the Market Hotel and ran it till approximately five years ago, when he retired to the house on Queen St. where he died. He was a friendly, pleasant and helpful man, and consequently well-known and highly respected far and wide.

In 1855, he married Salome Schnoeringer, and eight children were born from this marriage, of whom six are still living; namely: Herman, Edward. Albert, Emil, Alton, and the widow, Lisette Vetter. Mr. John H. Heller is a brother, and the wife of Mr. John B. Hett is a sister of the deceased. He was 69 years, 6 months and 8 days old.

Burial took place on Sunday afternoon, with an exceptionally large number attending. The town musical band, to which three of his sons belong, played funeral marches on the way to St. Peter's Church, where Pastor R. von Pirch held the funeral service, and thence, to the cemetery. Pall-bearers were the church elders H. Stuebing, P. Gies, J. Baetz, J. Koch, R. Pinke, and L. Sattler.1a

12147 FATAL RAILROAD WRECK ON THE ELMIRA LINE

Fireman Jones Killed Instantly, While Engineer Mitchell, Still Clinging to the Lever, Escapes Without a Scratch.

OVER THIRTY PASSENGERS MORE OR LESS INJURED.

Walter Jones, Elmira, fireman, killed.
Herbert Heller, St. Jacobs, finger broken and arm dislocated.
Louis Lienz, Waterloo, face badly injured and otherwise bruised.

The scene of the accident was about a mile south of the Heidelberg flag station [close to Farmers' Market in 2009] and two miles north of the Waterloo depot. Through the Clemmer farm [Lot 11, German Company Tract] there is a long curve and just as the end of it was reached, the tender left the track, followed by the engine and passenger and baggage car. At this point there is an embankment of about ten feet on each side of the track.

Probably the most fearful and distressing railway accident that has ever occurred in Waterloo County took place on the Elmira branch of the Grand Trunk Railway on Saturday evening. Never, as long as the twenty-five or thirty passengers and train hands live, will they forget the trip. The most miraculous feature of the accident being the marvellous escape of Engineer Mitchell who clung to the lever, while the tender left the rails in rounding a curve and his favorite iron horse plunged after it down the embankment ten feet below. When things came to standstill, he was still at his post, suspended by his arms from the lever and all he had to do was to let go and drop to the ground.

The women and children were taken to nearby farm-houses and the men who had limbs broken were carried into the baggage car until medical assistance arrived.

SENDING FOR HELP

Mr. Clemmer, the farmer who lives close by, was notified of the wreck and immediately hitched up his horses and drove to Waterloo and spread the news. The physicians were all summoned as well as the B & W Hospital [Berlin & Waterloo] Ambulance which was telephoned for.

AUXILIARY ARRIVES

When the auxiliary train arrived, the first work was to take the passengers on the wrecked train to their destination which was done, the St. Jacobites arriving home about 11 o'clock and the Elmiraites an hour later. The Auxiliary men laid a new track in the place of the old one which had been badly torn up, the ties being strewn in all directions. The baggage car was first placed on the rails and by eight o'clock Sunday morning the passenger car was turned right side up and put on the rails and taken to the Waterloo station. The work of placing the engine in a movable position required the steady work of thirty men all day Sunday and it was about eight o'clock before the wreck was cleared and the track put in a passable condition.


ON THE TRAIN

Among the passengers on the train were the following: John Linder, Geo. Bulmer, contractor; Mrs. Menno Snider, Jacob L. Umbach, Mr. Linder, Elmira, Miss Jenny, Southampton; Fred Filsinger, Mr. and Mrs. Lenz, two sons and twin daughters, Waterloo; J. Steiss, Fred Zarnke, Otto Zarnke, Mrs. F. Zarnke, Miss Huehnergard, Jacob Fries, John Fries, Berlin; Wendell Bauman, Herb Heller, St. Jacobs and others who names have not been learned.

THE INQUEST

The body of the fireman was brought down by the auxiliary to Shinn's undertaking establishment about 3:30 o'clock Sunday morning. An inquest was called by Coroner Dr. J. H. Webb for 11 o'clock Sunday and the jury was sworn in: S. B. Bricker, foreman, Geo. C. Peppler, Robert Stuart, Edgar Fischer, J. Hoffman, J. R. Kaufman, Walton E. Raymo, Julius German, Menno Devitt, Marcus Lewis, Henry Niergarth, W J. Krueber, W. J. Marshall, Ezra Strasser. The jury viewed the body and then adjourned until four o'clock Monday afternoon. Immediately after the Inquest, Coroner Webb and Dr. Noecker performed a post-mortem examination after which the undertaker, Mr. J. K. Shinn, was given charge of the body. At 3 o'clock the casket with the corpse was conveyed to Elmira, where friends awaited its arrival. The injuries to the body were a scalp wound, a blue mark across the forehead and around the neck, caused by the window sashes of the cab striking these parts and severe bruises over the hips, where he was crushed between the cab and the tender.

THE DEAD FIREMAN

Walter Jones, the unfortunate fireman, was born in Stratford and was aged 25 years. He was married but seven months ago to a young lady from Brampton. He was a fine fellow, tall and rather slender and always deporting himself like a gentleman. He was much thought of by Engineer Mitchell. He has been in the employ of the Galt and Elmira branch for over a year. His grief-stricken widow has the deep sympathy of the surrounding community. He was a member of the Canadian Order of Forresters and Brotherhood of Firemen. The funeral will be held at Stratford on Tuesday morning.

CAUSE OF THE ACCIDENT

There are several theories. Some maintain it was the spreading of the rails while others think that the tender being light, struck a slight jog in the rails and jumped the track. The most likely cause in the minds of the train employees is the latter. The line is a comparatively new one and it is not likely that the rails would spread at this time.

The inquest determined that it was an accident, cause unknown.

It is estimated that about 4000 Waterloo Countyites visited the scene on Sunday.1a

12151 LOCAL JEWELER DIES SUDDENLY

John Henry Heller Was Well Known Business Man; His Death Will Be Widely Mourned.

The community has been bereft of one of its highly respected members in the person of Mr. John Henry Heller, the wellknown jeweler. His death occurred suddenly at 7.15 on Sunday morning following a prolonged illness. The affliction which has terminated fatally was in the way of a nervous breakdown caused by overwork. For some time Mr. Heller had not been well but it was only in the last few weeks that it became serious. He had been away from work for six weeks. The immediate cause of death was heart failure. Mr. Heller was born in this city on August 30, 1868, and his age, therefore, was 52 years, 8 months and 1 day. He spent his life time in his native town. He was a son of the late J. H. Heller, who died a few years ago in whose footsteps he followed both in his exemplary private life and in his successful jewelry business. His acquaintances and friends were many, who admired his unassuming disposition, his friendliness and exemplary qualities. He was in the jewelery business 32 years during which time he built up a high class trade. With his brother established and maintained that business, and won a large number of patrons. The deceased is survived by his wife, Mary Trump, three sons and one daughter, who are Harold, Harry, Edward, and Myrtle (Mrs. A. W. Wallace) of Toronto. There are also four brothers and one sister, who are Fred and Alfred of Kitchener, Adolph of Waterloo, Allie of Frankfort, Ky., and Augusta (Mrs. A. W. Lorsch) of Detroit. The deceased was a member of St. Matthews church and of the local lodge of the Canadian Order of Foresters. The funeral will be held at 2.30 p.m. Wednesday from the residence, 146 South Queen street, and will be private. Interment will be made in Mount Hope cemetery.

12153 Lorne Nelson Heller of St. Jacobs, died in the early morning on September 4, 2012. Lorne will be missed by his wife of 67 years, Mildred Sophia. Lorne was the proud and loving father of Keith Heller and his wife Dolores Smith of Hudson, Quebec, and of Karen Cronin and her husband Timothy of St. Jacobs. Grandpa will also be greatly missed by Tracey Cronin, (Craig Hanley), Matthew Heller, Patricia Cronin (Kyle Grundy), Christine Heller (Neil Bercovitch), David Cronin (Juli) and Joshua Heller (Marie Mathieu). Liam, Sophia, Nora, (Hanley), Avery, Alexa, Stella (Grundy) and Caelem Cronin were also very lucky to have known their great-grandfather. Lorne was predeceased by all of his sisters: Erma Schmidt, Marjorie Schumacher and Eileen Lee, and by his grandson, Kevin Cronin. Lorne was born in St. Jacobs on October 20, 1917 and grew up in the rural village. After the outbreak of the Second World War, he enlisted in the Canadian Medical Corps and served as a medic with the 9th and 24th Field Ambulance in Sicily and Italy, and later in France, Belgium and the Netherlands. During the war, Mildred Schweitzer sent regular letters and packages to remind him of home. In the fall of 1945, Lorne came home and promptly married Mildred, his sweetheart, on November 10, 1945. Lorne and Mildred bought and settled on a small farm just outside of St. Jacobs. They enjoyed sharing their home and hospitality with family and friends. Lorne farmed, drove the bus for Elmira District Secondary School and worked at the St. Jacobs Home Hardware store to support his young family. About 1953 Lorne and Mildred opened "Rural Hardware." The hardware store served the local community for nearly 40 years until Lorne retired in 1992. Throughout his lifetime Lorne was active in his community as a leader and member of many different organizations including the St. James Lutheran Church Council, Elmira Fair Board and the St. Jacobs Lions Club. For the last few years of his life, Lorne lived together with Mildred, at Columbia Forest Long Term Care. Keith, Karen and the rest of the family would like to give our thanks for the compassionate and patient care that he received at Columbia Forest. Lorne's family would also like to extend their deepest and most heartfelt thanks to Mary-Jane Berry and Michelle Delsaut, Lorne's dedicated caregivers, who ensured that Lorne experienced a full life, even in these last years. A special thank you, as well, to Mr. Henry Gilles, neighbour and long time friend, for helping with the odds and ends that helped Lorne and Mildred stay in their home for so many years. Friends are invited to share their memories of Lorne with his family during visitation at Dreisinger Funeral Home, Elmira, on Friday, September 7, 2012 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Lorne and Mildred were life long and active members of their church, St. James Lutheran Church in St. Jacobs.

12162 A sad event at a hockey game at the local rink ended with the death of 26-year-old Emanuel Helmuth, spectator at the game. He was leaning over the boards when two players fell in front of him. One player landed on his back with his legs in the air, and his skate caught the neck of Helmuth,... severing his jugular and windpipe. Although Dr. Anderson was close by and attended the man almost immediately, nothing could be done and the unfortunate man died within minutes without speaking. Few spectators and none of the players knew of the incident until after the game ended.1a

12187 Hembling, a "preaching appointment" (MC) in Woolwich Township, Waterloo County, ON. William Hembling from England homesteaded here about 1831. He was ordained deacon of the Mennonite Church in 1858. The North Woolwich appointment was first known as Hembling. It is presumed that services were conducted in his home before the building of the church in 1872. The meetings were listed at four-week intervals. About 1875 Hembling associated himself with the Mennonite Brethren in Christ movement. After the schism of 1889 the North Woolwich church was used exclusively by the Old Order Mennonites. The Mennonite Church (MC) built its meetinghouse a few miles south at Floradale in 1896. Early ministers were Abraham W. Detweiler (1828-1912) and Joseph Gingerich (1842-1912). Peter Bowman became deacon in 1876.

12190 JURY, Hilda Catherine (Hemmerich) Passed away Tuesday, February 16, 2010, at North York General Hospital, in her 94th year, after a brief illness. "As a person thinketh in her heart, so is she" adapted from Proverb xxiii, 7. Hilda was married to her beloved husband Arthur Jury (deceased) for over 63 years. They were childhood sweethearts in Elmira. She loved her family; her son James, her daughter-in-law, of over 40 years, Jacqueline (Merrick), her sister Beatrice Hall married to Bill Hall, her sister Rita Snyder (deceased) and Rita's husband Joseph Snyder (deceased), her many nieces and nephews and their children, and her many close friends and neighbours. They have all returned her love and have frequently visited with her and her beloved Art when they were together, and, after he passed away, while she was living independently in Richmond Hill. She valued her independence, and only in the last few weeks gave up her driver's licence. Hilda loved to play bridge with the "girls", but became saddened when their numbers decreased as the years went by. She was loyal and generous to her friends, and would always help whenever help was needed. Hilda loved to laugh, called from an early age by her mother as the "giggle-daughter". Her personality was one to see humour and joy in her daily life. Hilda, Art, Jackie and Jim had many opportunities to travel, spending precious time together. When Art died, Hilda, Jackie and Jim enjoyed more travels together, including cruises and trips to resorts in the U.S. and Canada. The kind, compassionate and professional care of the doctors, nurses and caregivers at North York General Hospital is greatly appreciated by Hilda's family. In lieu of flowers, any donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated. A visitation will be held at the Dreisinger Funeral Home in Elmira, on Friday, February 19, from 4 to 7 p.m. The funeral will be held at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in Conestogo (near Waterloo) on Saturday, February 20, at 11 a.m. with refreshments in the church hall after the ceremony. Hilda Catherine Hemmerich

12194 Dr. Roy Hemmerich Dies Playing Golf

Dr. Roy G. Hemmerich, 60, one of Kitchener's better known dentists and the man who pioneered dental care for residents at the Arctic, died Saturday of a heart attack while playing golf at Westmount Golf and Country Club. He inaugurated the far northern dental care in 1949 at the request of the government after he had made a trip into the north aboard the Hudson Bay supply ship Nascopie in 1945. The RCAF flew him into the north, where he set up a portable chair wherever space could be found, from a recreation room to a garage. For the Eskimos and army personnel, the yearly trip by Dr. Hemmerich was their one chance to get dental care. People lined up to see him, many flying in from outside posts. Because of this the modest Kitchener man became known as Canada's most popular dentist. He made three trips into the Arctic, travelling farther north than any other member of the profession. His cousin, Lorne, associated with him in practice, made one trip. One Canadian dentist has made the trip each year since the service was started by Dr. Hemmerich. Dr. Hemmerich practised his profession in Kitchener since 1927 after his graduation from the University of Toronto dental school. He lived at 90 Rusholme Rd. He was born July 13, 1903, in Preston, son of the late Mr and Mrs. John Hemmerich. He was a member of the Church of the Good Shepherd, the Gyro Club and the Inter County Dental Society. In 1927 he married the former Onnerene Hagen, who survives. Surviving also are a son, Bruce of Kitchener, a daughter, Mrs. William (Barbara) Green of Ottawa, a sister, Mrs. Dalton Ella Wismer of Preston and five grandchildren. One son and one sister predeceased him. The body will be at the Gruhn Funeral Home until tomorrow noon, then at the Church of the Good Shepherd where Rev. Paul Zacharias will conduct the funeral at 2 p.m. Burial will follow in Preston Cemetery.

12195 Sad Death in Berlin.

Miss Minnie Hemmerly, an esteemed and trusted employee of Geo. Rumpel & Co's Felt Boot factory, met with an untimely and sad death this (Saturday) morning. Miss Hemmerly had been suffering with a severe sore throat for the past week and had been using medicine to cure it. Some friends recommended the use of carbolic acid diluted with water as a gargle as a cure for her ailment and she procured a bottle for that purpose.

On Friday evening Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Piellusch, Breithaupt St., where the deceased boarded, and Mr. and Mrs. Louis Krels, of New York City, the latter a sister of Miss Hemmerly, went to Waterloo to visit friends and left her in charge of the two children of Mr. Piellusch. It is supposed that the children were put to bed and the young lady went to her room to take her new medicine and not knowing the nature of carbolic acid she swallowed half of a two ounce bottle. Miss Hemmerly was found in her room lying across her bed by Mr. and Mrs. Piellusch on their return from Waterloo, the bottle lying on the floor beside the bed. The young lady was unconscious. A physician was immediately summoned, restoratives were applied and everything possible was done to save her life but in vain. She died this morning at 6.15.

The relatives and friends of the deceased are overwhelmed with grief at the sad untimely death of one whom to know was to love and the sympathy of the entire community will be extended to the immediate relatives in this sad hour.1a

DEATH OF MR. JOHN HENDERSON, OF GALT

On Monday morning this aged and most worthy man passed to his rest at the residence of Mr. James Welsh, his brother-in-law, in Waterloo. Mr. Henderson went out a little over a week ago to spend a few days with his old friends and was taken ill. Without apparent suffering he gradually grew weaker day by day, until on Monday last, he passed most quietly and peacefully away. He was aged 75 years.

On the 28th of October of last year we noted the celebration of the Golden Wedding of the aged couple of whom only the wife, beloved by all who know her, remains. From our remarks then we take the following extract: - "Mr. Henderson was born near Jedburgh, Scotland, in the year 1813, while his father was serving in the militia during the ever memorable campaign which terminated in Waterloo. He served his apprenticeship as a mason and stone-dresser with his father, and in 1832 he thought he could better himself in Canada, and landed in Galt in that year, a very different Galt, however, from the town of today. The only places of note then in the hamlet were Simpson's tavern, Andrews' distillery and Shade's mill. He at once began working at his trade, his first job being dressing the hearth-stones for Mr. Shade's fire place. After remaining in the village for some time he took up the farm in West Dumfries now occupied by Mr. Scott; but this he shortly afterwards sold and removed back, to the villager, where he remained till 1841, when he took up land in Waterloo Township, where he also took contracts; and many of the old mills and houses in that township bear the marks of Mr. Henderson's handiwork. He afterward removed to the south-west corner lot in Waterloo Township, where he remained until about three years ago, when he returned once more to his early Canadian love - the town of Galt.

During all the ups-and-downs of a pioneers life - during all the struggles of their early years - Mr. Henderson had in his wife a true and earnest helpmate, and one who took her full share of the hardships of life in a new country. She was a light alike in the dark and dreary days that come to all, as well as in the bright cheerful; and there are many yet alive who can bear testimony to her many kind words, as well as still kinder deeds, which brightened their struggles years and years ago."2a

A Pioneer Gone:

The passing at his home on Concession 11, North Dumfries, on Monday last, one who has been known in this vicinity for more than fifty - eight years. Thomas Henderson was born on the farm known as Abbot-Ruel in Roxburghshire, Scotland. In January 1829, at the age of 33 years, he married Miss Janet Henderson, who, though of the same name, was not a blood-relation. Of this union were born twelve children, eight of whom are still living. In the year 1831, Mr. and Mrs. Henderson came to Canada to make their home. On May 26th of that year they arrived in Galt, which was then a small village. Shortly afterwards they moved to the farm now occupied by Mr. R. Cochrane, North Dumfries. Remaining there a short time they next took the farm now in the possession of Mr. Wm. Morton, whence they went to the farm where Mr. Henderson ended his days, Lot 30, 11th Concession, settling there April 2nd 1842. Amongst those who came to this country about the same time as the deceased was his brother John Henderson; Thomas Adams, who served under Lord Nelson; James Davidson of Keg Lane; Robert Cranston; David Brown; John Kerr and John Mathison. Of these, we are informed that the first four named came in the same vessel with him. All have passed over to the great majority, some of them being laid to rest many years ago. So far as is known Mr. Henderson was the last remaining of the heroic old pioneers of North Dumfries, who endured much hardship and many privations that they might leave to those following, the fair heritage they now possess. All honour to such man, the memories of whose noble deeds cannot be too highly cherished by their descendants. Some 15 years ago Mr. Henderson gave up the management of the farm, his son John, with whom he has since resided, succeeding him. up to within five days of his death, he was able to move about the house, although the once robust form had failed. He has attained the patriarchal age of 93 years. His aged partner in life's joys and sorrows has the sympathy of a large circles of relatives and friends. Although 83, Mrs. Henderson is yet quite active and so lightly has time passed over her that she retains the natural colour of her hair much more than some of their children. Thier surviving children are Mrs. Chas. Rodgers of Wawanash Township, William of Ayr; James of Reidsville; Mrs. T. Mathison, of Strasburg; Thomas C., of Ayr; Mrs. James Henry, of Egremont Township; John, on the homestead and Robert E. living on Concession 10, North Dumfries. The funeral, which took place on Wednesday, to Cedar Creek cemetery was largely attended.3a

THE WOOLWICH COUNCIL

A Woolwich Township Council was organized on January 21st, 1850. The councillors were: John Meyer, Edward Passmore, Peter Wenger, Peter Hay, and Wm. Veitch. They met "at Conestoga, in Kurtz's tavern." The members chose John Meyer as reeve and named James Dow as clerk and treasurer; Moses Springer as assessor on the east side of the Grand River and Christian Hurst on the west wide, each at 6 pounds ($24) a year; and Wm. Reynolds as collector, with a salary of five and a half per cent. of his collections. Charles Hendry was appointed auditor.

The council ordered a seal and studied a plan for building a bridge across the Conestoga River; appointed a road surveyor and considered the advisability of appointing a local superin-tendent of schools. For a number of years schools, bridges, roads, and the regulation of taverns were the chief items of business.

Waterloo County's provisional municipal council met in Berlin on May 3rd, 1852. Woolwich was represented by Reeve John Meyer and Deputy-Reeve Peter Wenger.3a

12251 WILLIAM HENDRY

William Hendry was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, on March 2nd., 1834, and when a child, not quite two years of age, came to Canada with his parents. The family at first occupied land near Winterbourne where the father was killed during the second year, by being crushed under a tree he was felling. The mother with her two sons then moved to the vicinity of Fergus where William went to school. Charles, the older brother started a general store in Conestogo, where William began as a boy, having his sleeping place under the counter, as was the custom for sub-assistants. In Lovell's 1857-58 Canada Directory C. and W. Hendry are given as general merchants in Conestogo. Later William Hendry began business for himself in Neustadt, Grey County, where finally he had a store, a flaxmill and a farm.

In 1870, just after the company had been fully organized, he was offered and accepted the post of manager of the second company of its kind begun in Canada, the Ontario Mutual Life Assurance Company, now the Mutual Life Assurance Company of Canada, and here he found his real life work. It was owing to his foresight that the newly launched vessel was steered past the rocks of the assessment system and began the long and prosperous voyage as an old-time legal reserve, purely mutual life insurance company.

Unbounded enthusiasm, high intelligence and untiring energy ultimately had its reward and upon his retirement from the management of the company after twenty-seven years of strenuous effort, he had the satisfaction of seeing the institution of which he was the chief architect rise to stately proportions.

Impaired health compelled his retirement in 1897, but enabled him to find recreation in gardening, to which he was devoted, and among his books. Mr. Hendry was a faithful member of the New Jerusalem church. His interests were wide and he was keenly alive to the advancement of things Canadian as well as the affairs of his home town, of whose council he was at one time a member.

In 1855, when twenty-one years of age, William Hendry married Sarah Washburn, at the old Spring Valley farm near Berlin. Mrs. Hendry died in 1898. Three daughters survive. One son predeceased him last May.1a

1a\b\iFifth Annual Report of the Waterloo Historical Society\b0 1917

_______________________________

Hendry, William, of the town of Berlin, in the County of Waterloo, manager of the Ontario Mutual Life Assurance Company, was born in the City of Aberdeen, Scotland, on the 2nd day of March, 1834, and baptized in the Presbyterian Church, by the late Rev. Dr. Kidd, of Aberdeen. His father, Alexander Henry, was a cabinet maker, and his mother's maiden name was Ann Milne. They, with their children, two sons and one daughter, emigrated to Canada in the year 1836, and settled, in the then back woods, on a farm between Fergus and Elora. Here a small clearing was made, and a comfortable log dwelling erected. On the 1st of March, 1838, the day before the subject of this memoir was four years old, his father was killed when felling a tree, and the lamentable occurrence resulted in the breaking up of the home and dispelling its prospects. The boy's mother, who was possessed of strong will power, braved the almost insurmountable difficulties of her lot. and succeeded in obtaining for her son, William, as full a common school education as could be obtained at that time. The lad was placed under the tutorship of Mr. James McQueen, who still survives, and who has rarely been excelled in the country as a teacher. Her efforts were also untiring in inculcating the principles of the moral law, the Bible being her text-book and dearest companion. She enjoined regular attendance at Sabbath school, under the superintendence of the Rev. George Melville Smillie, who is yet pastor of Melville Church, Fergus. After leaving home, however, and as his years of reason were attained, the Presbyterian doctrines which he was taught appeared so contrary to those taught by our Saviour, to his idea of the divine attributes, and to reason, as he saw it, that young Hendry gradually rejected the doctrines of his youth, preferring those of the sacred Scripture as he found and understood them, and until he was thirty-five years old he found no sectarian doctrines which he could accept. The theological and other writings of Swedenborg had been for some time his reading and study, and after very full reflection he found in them complete and satisfactory tenets of doctrine. These he warmly embraced as to doctrine and life, and the New Jerusalem Church has no more earnest worker among her members than he now is, his motto, as that of his church, being, "All religion has relation to life, and the life of religion is to do good." His wife, who had been brought up a Methodist, also joined him in the reception of the new church doctrines. In his fifteenth year our subject left home and engaged in mercantile business as salesman, and soon thereafter as bookkeeper, in the mercantile and milling firm of C. Hendry & Co., of Conestogo, in the County of Waterloo, the senior member being his brother, who is ten years older and this connection resulted in a business partnership under the firm of C. & W. Hendry, which existed for some years. In 1864 an opportunity offered itself to engage in the growth and scutching of flax in the County of Grey, which Mr. Hendry accepted in partnership with Mr. W. D. Perine, who, with his brothers, were extensively engaged in that business in the County of Waterloo. This venture was unprofitable, owing to the destruction by fire of his whole mill property and the year's crop, which was manufactured and ready for shipment. About this time the Ontario Mutual Life Assurance Company was organized at Waterloo, with I. E. Bowman, president; C. M. Taylor, vice-president; and Moses Springer as secretary and general agent. A manager was deemed necessary by the directors, and that position was offered to Mr. Hendry in August, 1870, and accepted, first on trial, and then permanently, after the principles and details of the business had been acquired. Mr. Hendry now felt the weight of a heavy responsibility ; a great future appeared open to the Ontario, to be secured only by perseverance, skill and integrity ; the business of life assurance was being done almost exclusively by foreign companies, causing an immense annual financial drain on this country, and it required great labour and time to overcome the many prejudices which then existed. The Ontario is now, however, a creditable Canadian institution, and enjoying the fullest measure of public confidence. In November, 1854, William Hendry married Sarah Washburn, of the town of Berlin, and the family consists of one son, three daughters and two grandsons, uo deaths having occurred. Mr. Hendry was clerk of the seventh Division Court of the County of Waterloo from 185C to 1864, during which term he was appointed a justice of the peace, and still enjoys thai communion. In 1871 he joined the Masonic fraternity in Grand River Lodge, No. 151, at Berlin, passed through the various official positions, and served two years as W. M., taking a warm interest in the welfare of the craft, till the fall of 1877, when congestion of the brain and a form of spasmodic tetanus interfered with his speech, since which time he has become a member of Grand River Chapter, No. 70, of Berlin.2a

Conestogo Oatmeal Mill

Or passing through the thriving Village of Conestogo lately, we spent some time in inspecting the Oatmeal Mill newly erected in that place by William Hendry, Esq., We were agreeably surprised on entering the building, to find it so commodious, being 70 x 40 feet, and three stories high, exclusive of the basement. This apartment of the mill contains the motive power, duster, fan, &c. This arrangement affords very great capacity for storing grain. Here we were greatly pleased with the taste and skill displayed by Mr. Hendry as there seemed to be a place for everything, and we have reason to believe that when the mill is in full blast---as we suppose it is ere this--- everything will be found in its place, which is so necessary to ensure success in any business. The machinery of the mill is of the best description, consisting of all the latest improvements, and fitted up by first rate workmen. Mr. Hendry seems to have been actuated by one object, namely the erection of a first class Mill and to accomplish this end he has spared neither time nor expense; but he has the satisfaction of knowing that he has one of the best mills of its kind in the Province, and where as good an article of meal will be manufactured as can be found anywhere---. Amongst the latest improvements in the machinery, he has introduced a filter for thoroughly cleaning the oats before they are shelled. This of itself must make a great difference in the quality of the article manufactured, as oats in Canada, are a general thing, badly cleaned. The machinery is also so arranged that all the black dust and shells are expelled from the [line illegible] the main stories fee from dust and dirt, which will secure a pure and sweet article of Oatmeal. Mr. Hendry, has, through Mr. J. Gartshore of Dundas, procured his shelling stones at considerable expense from "Derry Quarry" Ireland, and they are pronounced by that gentleman to be of the very best quality. The Mill is propelled by an excellent water privelege, which is supplied by a never failing spring, having a fall of about twenty feet, and will be able to grintl'from five to six hundred bushels of oats per day.

The enterprising spirit thus displayed by Mr. Hendry is deserving of all praise, and we trust his efforts to produce a first class article of Oatmeal will be handsomely rewarded, as we have no doubt they will. It will be of great benefit to the flourishing Village of Conestogo to have such an establishment in full blast, as it will afford a market for the sale of oats,• that has not heretofore existed in any part of the County. Conestogo seems to be looking up. There is now besides an oatmeal mill, a grist mill and distillery, owned by Henry Snider, Esq., and Mr. J. B. Snyder, late of Winterbourne, has removed there, where he has erected a fine new brock store, which is stocked with a large assortment of seasonable goods. Mr. Chas. Hendry---late C & W Hendry---still continues to drive a splendid business at the old stand. Such enterprise deserves to be liberally supported, and we have no doubt it will."3a

12254 The Henhoeffer house was built in 1887 by Abram D. Clemens for $4,000, and sold to Anthony Henhoeffer three years later.

The farmhouse is a two-storey building of buff brick, and is "a notable example of the Italianate architectural style, with an attractive and unique design," according to Parks. The house still retains many original elements, including bay windows and brick decoration, and the concrete platform once used to help people as they climbed in and out of carriages and wagons. There has been a barn on the property since at least 1854.

12263 Cameron Henrich, 32, killed in rollover crash south of Elora
Police say he died after he lost control of his car on Wellington Road 21 on Sunday afternoon

Cameron Henrich has been identified as the Kitchener man who died in a single-vehicle rollover crash on Sunday morning on Wellington Road 21, say Ontario Provincial Police.

The 32-year-old was driving west on the country road southwest of Elora when police say his vehicle left the roadway for unknown reasons, causing it to roll over.

Henrich was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police have not disclosed the cause of the crash, saying an investigation is still underway.

However a Facebook post from Henrich's sister Carrie early Monday urged her brother's friends to slow down and be more careful drivers.

"Stop encouraging one another to speed up," she wrote. "I just finished watching a video he pasted [sic] Saturday afternoon and a bunch of you were commenting for him to go faster."

"If my brother had been safe he would still be alive and me and my family, his son, wouldn't be devistated [sic] and at a loss right now."

When within about three miles of the place we met my brother William. Being very tired we were overjoyed at the meeting, but soon, alas, our joy was turned to sorrow, for he informed us that my brother James was dead. He had died the day before of inflammation of the lungs, and we had arrived in time to attend the funeral, which was to take place at two o'clock the next day. We had expected to meet him well and happy, and enjoy a pleasant visit with him. We arrived at his house and found him cold in death, with his wife and nine children weeping around him.

12273 "Notes of Interest for Descendants of John Henry and Elizabeth Rife. The town of Hespeler was incorporated into the City of Cambridge in 1973 along with Galt, Preston and some nearby villages. One of the requirements of this amalgamation was the elimination of any duplication in Street names. There was a Henry Street in Galt, Preston and Hespeler. Henry Street Hespeler was named in honour of John Henry. The Galt Street, being by far the longest, was to retain its name, while the Preston and Hespeler Street were to be renamed. I (Robert L. Henry, Halifax) did not agree with this decision and decided to take action. I prepared a court brief and presented it to the judge at the hearing in Kitchener, Ontario. I knew that it was an uphill fight to retain the name "Henry" only on the street, so my conclusion in the brief was a request to rename the street "Henry Villa Drive." "Henry Villa" was the name of John Henry's home. This was authorized by the Court, so now Henry Street in the Hespeler portion of Cambridge is now known as "Henry Villa Drive." The following is a small street map of the old farm area in Hespeler in which streets of interest to the family are shown. Milton Avenue is named after my uncle George Milton. Austin Avenue is named after my uncle James Austin. Emerson Street is named after my father Thomas Emerson. (I don't know why they didn't get a street named for uncle Bert, Aunt Mildred or Aunt Bella when they were at it)."

Henry (1802-1845) was a younger brother of Reverend Thomas. He was married around 1825 and it is believed his wife was an Ellis from the Oshawa area. James and his wife moved to the Guelph area about 1830 (Guelph was founded in 1827) and raised a family of nine children. The next set of notes concerns the family of James Henry (1802-1845). Except for his son John (1840-1903) very little is known. The names below were taken from county records of Guelph and Waterloo and others were names of my father's first cousins. John Henry (1840-1903). John lived all his life in the vicinity of Hespeler (except for a brief stay in California). He married Elizabeth Rife (1842-1926) from Berlin (Kitchener), Ontario. They raised a family of two daughters and four sons. Henry Re-Unions. The plans for having an annual Henry Re-Union were drawn up in Hespeler during the funeral of Elizabeth (Rife) Henry on August 13, 1926. The first Re-Union was held at Arthur in 1927 and the second was held at Oshawa in 1928."

next set of notes concerns the family of John (1840-1903) and Elizabeth (Rife) (1842-1926). John was a businessman in Hespeler, Ontario. He married Elizabeth Rife on 6 January, 1864 in Berlin (Kitchener) Ontario. In 1866, he built a two storey stone building on the main street of Hespeler which contained two stores on the lower level and his own living quarters on the second storey. He operated a bakery in one store and rented the other. In 1875, he erected another stone building alongside and opened a grocery store. In approximately 1880, he purchased a large farm on which was a huge stone barn, farmhouse and house for the hired help. This was the original farm of Jacob Hespeler for which the town was named. He moved the family to the farm house which was known in the town as the Henry Villa. In 1898, the two buildings on the main street were torn down and the large Henry Block was erected in their place. It was completed in 1901 and still stands today (1974) as an imposing structure on the town's main street. The Henry farm was sold to John Forbes and the buildings torn down for his residence (one square stone tower of the barn remains today). Part of the farm land was used for town development - the remainder stayed as farmland. Today, Alex Forbes (son of George) has a wild bird sanctuary on the farmland."1a

12276 Kossuth Christian Church Begun: 1857 Closed:

The first schism in the American Methodist Episcopal Church occurred in 1792 when James O'Kelly (or O'Kelley) along with "a number of other preachers and several thousand members withdrew from the Methodist Church over the question of the appointing power of the bishop... (Encyclopedia Britannica)." The dissident group "took the name of Republican Methodists. Most of them eventually merged with the followers of Barton W. Stone to form the Christian Church (later united with the Congregationalists [in the United States]) (Ibid.)."

William Henry who was pastor to the congregation of the Kossuth Christian Church, may have been of the same family as Elder Thomas Henry, who was an early minister of the Christian Church in Oshawa. Thomas Henry and other members of his family had been brought into the Christian Church in 1825 by Elder Joseph Blackmar, a missionary from the United States. The father of Thomas Henry, John Henry, settled in Oshawa c.1816. Papers of the Canadian Christian Church, which are in private hands, indicate that William Henry may also have been a son of John Henry.

A Christian Church is reported to have been founded in Waterloo Township on July 1, 1853. The location of the church is shown on Tremaine's 1861 map of Waterloo Township, on the north side of Waterloo Regional Road 30 (Kossuth Road) at the far eastern edge of Waterloo Township. This would have been in the northwest corner of property belonging to Rev. (Elder) William Henry, which was lot 91 of the German Company Tract; William Henry is recorded as owner of that land for the first time in 1855. Rev. Henry moved from Kossuth c.1861 to near Harriston where he founded Jerusalem Christian Church. William Henry died in 1880 and is buried at Harriston.1a

12280 HENSHAW, Harold Vaughn - It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our father, Harold V. Henshaw, 83, after a short illness, February 19, 2009, at the home of his daughter Barbara, in Berwick, Nova Scotia. Harold and our beloved mother, Edith lived, worked and raised a family in Waterloo for 27 years, moving back to Nova Scotia in 1974. Dad was a heavy duty mechanic for most of his career before working at Schlichter's establishing their small engines division. Dad was an active member of the K-W Octoberfest Lions Club, the Legion and the Twin City Rifle Club. A gunsmith by hobby and an expert marksman and hunter, Dad continued to enjoy these hobbies throughout his life. As recently as three years ago, Dad came second in The Nova Scotia Provincial Target Shooting Championships. In Nova Scotia he was an employee of Atlantic Air Cooled Engines, where he was a small engines mechanic, teacher and salesman. Dad loved people and he was always quick with a smile, a helping hand and a joke for every occasion. Harold was a proud Veteran of the Second World War and served with the North Shore New Brunswick Regiment at The Battle of the Scheldt in Holland. He was active in Regiment reunions and Remembrance Day ceremonies including the 60th Anniversary of the Liberation of Holland, a trip he shared with his son Harold. A highlight for Dad was the Year of the Veteran Via Rail Troop Train excursion from Halifax to Ottawa for Remembrance Day Ceremonies which he shared with his two best friends from his regiment. We were proud of his featured participation in the ATV International Award winning documentary of that memorable trip called "A Sentimental Journey." Born in Yarmouth NS April 21 1925, he was predeceased by his parents; his brother, Donald and his beloved wife of 48 years Edith (Lockwood). Left to mourn are daughters Paula (Pierre Lessard,) Linda (Scott Tanner) Barbara ( Cory Kent) son Harold (Beverley Maziarz,) 9 grandchildren, one great grand daughter, sister Jean Dole and extended family and many friends. The funeral has taken place with over 200 people attending. His ashes will be interned along side his cherished wife in Parrsboro Nova Scotia this summer.1a

12281 HENSON, JOSIAH, fugitive slave, Methodist preacher, author, and founder of the settlement at Dawn (near Dresden), Canada West; b. 15 June 1789 in Charles County, Md, to slave parents; m. first c. 1811 Charlotte, a slave (she probably died October 1852), and they had at least 12 children; m. secondly c. 1856 Mrs Nancy Gamble, a free black widow; d. 5 May 1883 at Dresden, Ont.

Josiah Henson was given the Christian name of his first master, Dr Josiah McPherson, and the surname of his master's uncle. According to his autobiography, the only known source for his early life, Josiah was five when McPherson died and he was sold to less benign masters, first to a tyrant named Robb, and shortly thereafter to Isaac Riley in whose service he was reunited with his mother. As a young man Henson was "maimed for life," having an arm and both shoulder blades broken by the white overseer of a neighbour of his master. Faithful in his obligations, Henson was a trusted slave, travelling extensively on his master's business. In 1825, because of financial difficulties, Riley transferred his slaves to the farm of his brother Amos in Kentucky. Henson was charged with the supervision of the journey, and, refusing an opportunity to escape into Ohio, he delivered his charges. At 18 Henson had become a Christian after hearing his first sermon and during his three years in Kentucky he became a Methodist preacher. In September 1828, on the advice of a white Methodist preacher, Henson used a trip to see his master in Maryland as an excuse to tour the country as a preacher and earn money to buy his freedom. In 1829 he arranged the purchase but was betrayed by his master and was taken to New Orleans that same year to be sold. Saved only by the illness of his transporter, his master's son, which necessitated their return to Kentucky, Henson decided to flee, taking with him his wife and four children. After a long trek through Indiana and Ohio, they sailed to Buffalo whence, crossing the Niagara River, they finally reached Upper Canada on 28 Oct. 1830.

For approximately four years Henson worked as a farm labourer in the Waterloo area where he preached occasionally and began to learn to read. Then in 1834, having planned an exclusively black settlement, he led about a dozen of his associates to Colchester where they rented government land. Shortly after their arrival the group was freed from rent because of a mistake in the conditions of allotment; Henson had planned that they remain only a short time, but after this advantageous happening the settlers remained seven years. Here Henson met Hiram Wilson, the missionary sent by the American Anti-Slavery Society in 1836 to minister to Canadian blacks. Aided financially by Wilson's friend, James Cannings Fuller, a Quaker philanthropist of Skaneateles, N.Y., Henson decided to establish a more formally organized black community for fugitive slaves where they could prove their capacity for freedom. With Wilson and a silent partner (probably Fuller), he purchased 200 acres in Dawn Township, Upper Canada, "for the alone purpose . . . of Education Mental Moral and physical of the Coloured inhabitants of Canada not excluding white persons and Indians"; he also purchased 200 adjoining acres for himself to which he moved his family in 1842. The Canada Mission, a group originally composed of Wilson's friends in Ohio and later of philanthropists in upstate New York, provided continuing support.
Central to Dawn, as a living and working community, was the British-American Institute. Established in 1842 as a manual labour school for students of all ages, it was designed both to train teachers and to provide a general education "upon a full and practical system of discipline, which aims to cultivate the entire being, and elicit the fairest and fullest possible development of the physical, intellectual and moral powers." Throughout Dawn's existence, the institute remained its principal focus.

Until 1868 Henson served regularly on the institute's executive committee, which not only directed the school but oversaw the farms, grist-mill, sawmill, brickyard, and rope-walk which the settlement undertook. Yet he was never the community's official administrative head, a role always filled by a white man: first Wilson (1842-47), then Samuel H. Davis of the American Baptist Free Mission Society (1850-52), and finally John Scoble*, former secretary of the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society (1852-68). Throughout, however, Henson functioned as patriarch of Dawn and as a spokesman for Canada's growing black population. In both capacities, he raised funds by tours of the American Midwest, New England, and New York between 1843 and 1847 as well as England in 1849-51 and 1851-52.

Henson was also persistently involved in Dawn's internal dissensions and consequent investigations of the institute's effectiveness and financial management. In 1845 William P. Newman was appointed secretary of the executive committee to reorganize the management and he soon charged the committee, Henson included, with maladministration. Although two years later a Negro convention at Drummondville (now part of Niagara Falls, Ont.) cleared Henson of wrongdoing, in 1848 the trustees of the institute condemned the whole executive committee as "unfit" to direct the affairs of the school. Similarly, investigations in Britain in 1849 and 1852 produced equivocal findings which nourished doubts about Henson's aptitude.

Much of the tension was generated by conflicts between Henson, as spiritual and symbolic leader, and the official administrators. Spreading throughout the community, these dissensions racked Dawn and nearby centres of black settlement. They caused the resignation of Wilson in 1847, the failure of an attempt to rule by committee from 1847 to 1850, and the brevity of Davis' tenure. Even Scoble, who stayed at Dawn for 16 years, tangled increasingly with Henson over property sales and in subsequent lawsuits Scoble emerged victorious. In 1868, when the institute closed and after Scoble had left Dawn, the assets of the school were used to establish the Wilberforce Educational Institute in nearby Chatham. After this time the settlement died out and Henson, though he stayed on in Dresden until his death, had lost his role as a black leader.
In 1849 Henson had published his autobiography, which underwent numerous editions and modifications during his lifetime. Three years after the first edition appeared, Harriet Elizabeth Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's cabin; or, life among the lowly (2v., Boston and Cleveland, Ohio, 1852) was published. Stowe acknowledged that she had met Henson and read his book; thereafter, Henson was the putative prototype of the fictional "Uncle Tom." For some years he made lecture tours as the "real life Uncle Tom" and in 1876 he returned to England to raise funds to support himself, his resources having been depleted in his long court battle with Scoble. He also returned to his old slave home in Maryland briefly in 1877-78, but thereafter spent his last years quietly.

Although Josiah Henson had been a participant in abolitionist activity in the United States, his importance in Canadian history lies in his work at Dawn. It was here that he contributed significantly to Canada's role in the North American anti-slavery crusade.

12311 HERGOTT, Raymond L. - It is with heavy hearts, the family of Raymond Leander Hergott announces his death on Thursday, May 11, 2006 in his 85th year. Ray passed away, peacefully and with great dignity, in the presence of his loving family, due to complications following surgery. Papa as he was named by his first and only granddaughter was the head of a very extended family who all loved him very much. He was the loving and devoted husband to Mary (nee Russo) for 63 wonderful years of marriage. Father of Mary Jane (Janie) McDonald, of New Hamburg and Jackie Harden and her husband Tim of Hepworth. Very loving grandfather of Kellie Barclay and her husband Stewart of Fergus, Sean McDonald and his wife Tamie of Kitchener, Jeffrey Harden and his wife Eva of Collingwood, and Jeremy Harden and his wife Tasha of Cambridge. Devoted great-grandpa of Julia, Hannah and Jonathan Barclay, Rylie and Tanner McDonald, Josiah, Liam and Eli Harden. Brother of Len Hergott and wife Mary and Irene Haid. Predeceased by his parents, Edward and Matilda (Kuntz); sisters, Rita Hall and Geraldine Gesinghaus. Also his loved son-in-law, Robert McDonald (2005) and great-grandson, Hunter McDonald (2004). Ray served his country during the Second World War enlisting with the Lorne Scots in September 1942, three weeks after his wedding. He went overseas in 1943 and returned home in 1946 to a very happy wife and two year old daughter. He was a member of a very unique "bachelor" club for over 65 years (none of whom remained bachelors). They shared many wonderful reunions with their "wives" over the past years. In June of 2000 their story was profiled in the K-W Record. Ray started at Electrohome before the war in October 1941 and was a faithful employee retiring in September 1986. He built their first home on Guelph Street and their next on Hamel Avenue until the expressway (Highway 85) drove them further into the countryside to Winterbourne where they lived for many years until moving back to Kitchener to their present home. For many years the whole family enjoyed wonderful times at the cottage he built at Conestoga Lake. Boating, water-skiing, fishing and lots of camp fires and sunsets. Papa was always in demand at campfires because of his musical talent. He played the guitar and harmonica together. One of Papa's greatest loves was his annual trek in October to Timmins for the great "moose hunt" which seldom produced any bounty. But we know a great time was had by all. In later years he took up woodworking and spent many happy hours refinishing antique furniture for his daughter and then turning to making bird houses which were works of art. Papa you left us a legacy of precious memories which none of us will forget. We will all miss you terribly and there is no one who will forget your friendly smile. Ray's family will receive relatives and friends, tonight (Saturday) from 7-9 p.m. and on Sunday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m., at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick St., Kitchener, 749-8467.

12326 PIONEER RESIDENT CALLED TO REST
MR. ADAM HERRMANN HAS PASSED AWAY

On Thursday, June 16, inst., Mr. Adam Herrmann, an aged and respected citizen of Elmira, died at his home on Park Avenue.
Mr. Herrmann was born in Germany and migrated to Canada at the age of fourteen. He came to Canada with his two sisters and a brother-in-law and they located in Conestogo.

He worked two years with a farmer, then apprenticed himself to the coopering trade, with his brother-in-law. In 1863 he married Miss Catherine Stroh, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Conrad Stroh of Conestogo.

Mr. and Mrs. Herrmann lived for a year in Waterloo town, after which, in 1864, they began farming, about 3 miles east of Elmira, where he lived 54 years. Mrs. Herrmann predeceased her husband in 1900. Mr. Herrman moved about three years ago to Elmira.
Two sons and four daughters survive their parents,--namely, Mr. Charles Herrmann and Mr. George both of Elmira; Caroline (Mrs. Albert Knarr) of Conestogo; Mary (Mrs. Henry Eix) of Elmira; Emelia (Mrs. Wm. Becker) of Woolwich Township ad Miss Clara Herrmann, at home.

Mr. Herrmann enjoyed good health until he reached his 77th year, when in 1913 he suffered a paralytic stroke on his right side. In 1915, he had the misfortune to fall and fracture his leg. Since April of this year he had difficulty in breathing and gradually became weaker, finally passing to rest on Thursday of last week. He was born on March 6, 1837 and died on June 16, 1921, and thus was 84 years, 3 months and 10 days of age when dissolution came.

On Sunday, June 19, his funeral was held from his late residence on Park Avenue, to St. James' Lutheran Church, where Rev. J. Strempfer conducted services, after which burial took place in St. James' Church cemetery.

The pallbearers were six of his old neighbors; Messrs-Addison Snyder, George Miller, Louis Schmermund, Conrad Braun, Charles Winfield and Walter Durst.

The funeral was largely attended by friends, who regretted deeply the death of a sterling man. He was industrious. honest and goodhearted-one of those pioneers who helped give Waterloo its good reputation for industry and thrift.

His passing onward to eternal rest is mourned by many and to the bereaved sons and daughters and relatives the sincere sympathy of the community is extended.1a

12327 DIED IN THE POOR- HOUSE

On Friday morning, Mr. John G. Hermann, approximately 75 years old, died in the poor-house here; it probably had never been suspected that he one day would end his life in such a place. He was descended from an esteemed family in Germany, was a classmate of Prince Bismarck, had had a good upbringing and a fine education. For many years, he was the head-bookkeeper of Gnidiger and Co., a wholesale firm in Montreal, and when he resigned from the job, the company offered him a pension of $21.00 a month for the rest of his life. A few years ago, changes took place in the firm, which had as a consequence, that, instead of the monthly pension, he received $1600 in a lump sum.

He took the money and bought some land in Muskoka for his son, with the understanding that he would be able to live with him for the rest of his life. Life was made so miserable for him, however, that he preferred to come here to Berlin, to earn his living among strangers with book-keeping and such like. He continued with this up until 2 years ago, when he became blind and had to seek shelter in the poor-house, where he died on Friday. His German and English friends raised a sum of money, so that he could be buried in the municipal cemetery in a decent way. Pastor Turk made a short speech at the burial on Sunday afternoon, and the Concordia Male Choir sang a funeral song at the graveside.1a

____________________

About the year 1821, what is apt to be one of the earliest "institutions" of a new settlement was erected, namely, a tavern. It was a small one-and-a-half story frame building, situated near the corner of Main and Water Streets, a little north of where Woods and Taylor's store now stands. It was first opened by one Morgan L. Hermonts; two years afterwards one John Clark* become the landlord, and subsequently it fell into the hands of a man named James Taylor. Some idea of the value of property over half a century ago, may be obtained from the fact, that Taylor offered the hotel, stables and lot, to a gentleman still living in Galt, for $300, and failed to find a purchaser. Ten years afterwards, however, we find their value had greatly increased.

This acre of ground, situated in the very heart of Galt, was one of the first parts of Dumfries deeded away by Mr. Dickson, and ultimately gave rise to most vexatious legal proceedings. Taylor was related to, and ultimately disposed of the property to Mr. Thomas Lepard, of Wool-wich (afterwards of Dundas), who, at his death, willed it to his daughter, Mary Ann Lepard, who was his only child. Mr. Thomas G. Chapman was appointed executor. Find-ing the personal estate inadequate to liquidate the debts, he advertised the lot to be sold by public auction, when it was knocked down to Mr. Thomas Mackenzie, who was a mill-wright by trade, and had recently arrived in Galt from Nova Scotia. This was about the time of the rebellion, and the price obtained was $1,600 - a very considerable rise above the modest sum at which Taylor had offered to sell it some years previously. Mr. Mac-kenzie sub-divided the acre into lots, and erected a small frame house on one of them for his own use.

Sometime after this, Mary Ann Lepard married a shift-less fellow named Benjamin Tribe, who resided near Elora. Matters had proceeded thus far, when the ques-tion arose as to whether the executor, Mr. Chapman, had the right to sell the lot, although it was for the payment of the debts of the estate. A case was submitted to Mr. W. If.. Draper, of Toronto, for his opinion. He decided adversely, which was a most unpleasant discovery for Mr. Chapman, and still more so for Mr. Mackenzie, who, with buying and building, had sunk all his hard-earned money. There was a general consultation held by Messrs. Mackenzie, Chapman, Shade and Adam Ainslie (the latter is now a resident of Leith), and it was arranged that the three gentlemen last mentioned should go on an expedition, combining pleasure with business, namely, to drive to Elora, see Tribe and wife, endeavour to get a confirmation of Mackenzie's title, and then fish down the Grand River home again.

To make a long story short, Tribe agreed to confirm the title for $150, and came down to Mr. Ainslie's office the following week for the purpose. Mr. Ainslie appointed 3 o'clock that afternoon for him and his wife to come and execute the necessary papers. The hour arrived, but they did not. The next day it was ascertained that Tribe had sold out all his own arid his wife's interest to Mr. John Miller, Barrister, had executed a deed for the acre lot, and left the village This was sad news for Mackenzie, and made the difficulties far greater than ever.

Two legal suits immediately ensued. Miller began a Chancery suit to dispossess Mackenzie, and Mr. Ainslie re-torted by commencing an action against Mr. Miller for Champerty,, or buying a disputed title. We need not follow the legal proceedings further than to say, that they occasioned much interest in the courts of the Province, and quite excited the little village whilst the result was pending. Unlike many lawsuits, however, all came out right in the end. Mr. Mackenzie was confirmed in his title, and Mr. Miller, whom the jury amerced in the sum of £500, had the verdict set aside at the next term, as being contrary to law.


* Clarke long went by the name of "Old Johnny Clarke," and is well remembered for his loquaciousness and other peculiarities. He owned the farm of Rosehill, adjoining Galt, at one time, but sold it, and took up Lot No. 7 in the 5th Concession of South Dumfries. Becoming old, he subse went to reside with some friends at Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he, survived until a few years ago.

Arrest of John E. Herris, Who is Wanted in Berlin for Numerous Forgeries.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press of the 6th says: - "The incoming 6:30 train on the Northern Pacific Road last evening brought upon it J.W. Murray, Chief of the Provincial Detective Department, Ontario, Canada, who had in his custody John Kizer Herris, who is wanted in Berlin, Ontario, for numerous forgeries. The arrest of Herris is one of the most important made this year, and it was only after several weeks hunt that his whereabouts was ascertained. Herris was formerly in the employ of Hughes Bros., wholesale dry goods merchants at Toronto, and is the son of the tanner living near Berlin, Ontario. He is a German about 28 years of age, and is looked upon as a shrewd young man. The crime for which he is under arrest is the forging of several notes upon the Imperial Bank of Galt, County of Waterloo, aggregating in amount to over $3,000, which were committed on June 13th and 14th inst. After being traced from that place to Minnesota, United States Marshal W.M. Campbell was notified, and succeeded in locating his man at St. Cloud. Chief Murray came on immediately, and traced Herris from St. Cloud to Little Falls and from there to various parts of the State until he was found in a small hamlet near Royalton teaching a German school under the name of Walker. He was arrested by the Sheriff of Morrison County and brought by Chief Murray to St. Paul, where Marshal Campbell placed him in the county gaol for safe keeping. When arrested Herris denied any knowledge of the affair, and claimed that his name is Walker, but Chief Murray is positive he is the man wanted. The extradition has been commenced. Herris will be brought before United States Commissioner Spencer for examination this morning, and there is no doubt that he will be remanded to await the arrival of the necessary papers. When discharged by Hughes Bros., Herris' accounts were found to be wrong, and it is said that forgeries which he has committed before the present cases have been hushed up by his father. He is the second Canadian arrested for forgery in Minnesota during the last two months."

WHAT THE IMPERIAL BANK MANAGER SAYS

Messrs. Hughes Bros. were seen in reference to the above. They said that as far as they remembered they knew nothing wrong about Herris. The manager of the Imperial Bank was also seen, and stated the amount of the forgery was not quite as large as given by the Pioneer Press. The forgeries would amount to about $700. It had cost them a lot of money to trace Herris, but they were determined to bring everyone who committed a forgery on their bank to justice if they had to follow him around the world. Herris had been in business near Berlin with his father, John Herris, as partner. The young man obtained money on drafts which he made himself and signed other parties names to them.1a

12362 Cambridge's Katie Herron, 7, loses lifelong battle against rare cancer

'Life will never be the same without you, sweetheart'

Katie won the hearts of many people in and around Cambridge as they rallied to fundraise $500,000 in 2015 for an experimental cancer treatment only available in the U.S

That fundraising continued this year, as she faced her fourth battle with cancer.

Fund raiser

In January, K-W's Rob Brunette helped organize an event at the Grand River Hotel, to help ease the financial burden on Katie's family.

Brunette lost his wife to cancer, which he said was painful enough. He can't imagine what the girl's family is going through.

"It's one thing to lose a parent. It's another thing to lose a wife. But to lose a child? That's got to be twice as devastating ... That's what hit me the hardest."

Rare cancer

At 18 months, Herron was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in her legs. After undergoing chemotherapy, radiation and a bone marrow transplant, she was told by her doctors that a T-cell therapy trial at the University of Pennsylvania was her best bet. ....

The premises occupied are 45x50 feet in dimensions and three stories in height, being a frame building. Here employment is furnished to 11 skilled workmen throughout the year, the number being increased according to the season and the pressure of business. Mr. Hertle manufactures all kinds of sash, doors, blinds, and all kinds of builders' furnishings. He also utilizes part of the power to run a feed chopping mill, which is a great convenience to those keeping horses in the vicinity. Mr. Hertle is also a contractor and builder, and does considerable work in this line around town and country, throughout which section his business extends. He is a practical workman, and superintends all work done before it is permitted to leave his establishment, thus ensuring satisfaction to his customers, and still further building up his reputation for capability and skill. He is a native of Canada though of German extraction, and is, like his country-men who have built up Berlin to its present proportions, a valuable and honoured citizen.1a

12383 A big brother who never came home

.....April 13 the regiment reaches the outskirts of Assen. From there it's house-to-house fighting. The Canadians press into the town centre, capturing the town hall, the post office and other public buildings.

Bullets are still flying as delirious residents rush the Canadians, tossing flowers at them and offering up drinks. Dutch prisoners stream joyfully from the town jail. The celebration earns recognition in the official history of the Canadian Army: "Everywhere Dutch civilians danced in the streets and cheered their liberators."

Don Balcarras goes looking for Dave. It would be nice to talk about home. He finds someone who should know where to find his schoolmate. The reply is curt. "Ah, he got it." Don is dismayed.

Pte. Dave Hertzberger died April 13, seven days after writing his brother. His family is later told that he died in house-to-house fighting. Up to a dozen men with the Essex Scottish are killed liberating Assen.....1a

Nanton, a leading citizen of Winnipeg, to Miss Hespeler, daughter of William Hespeler, Esq., of the same city, and niece of Mrs. Adam Warnock, of Galt.

To the grief-stricken husband and relatives this will indeed he a crashing blow ; and the many friends of Mr. Hespeler and family in Waterloo will unite expressing their deepest sympathy with them in their sad bereavetnent

12409 Jacob Hespeler

Cambridge Hall of Fame
Inducted 1995

Jacob Hespeler was born in Ehningen Germany in 1811, the eldest son of John George Hespeler and Anna Barbara Wick. His mother's grandfather was Count Andrassy, an Hungarian nobleman. The evidence suggests that he was twice married, first to Eliza "Lissie" Knoth (c.1835) and sometime later to Elise Diehl. He had nine children, seven of whom survived to adulthood. Little is known of Mr Hespeler's early years others than that he was educated in Nancy, France and emigrated to Canada with all but one of his nine brothers and sisters. Mr Hespeler spent a number of years working in the fur trade first in association with John Jacob Astor and then with the Hudson Bay Co. In about 1835 he decided to settle down and moved to the German community of Preston. There he opened a store with a man named Yoeste (Yost). It appears that Mr Yoeste had some difficulty with the authorities in the United States and before long Mr Hespeler was the sole owner of the business. This single store was not sufficient to satisfy Mr Hespeler's boundless energies and he soon turned his sights on some land upon which he could build a grist mill, a mill that would run in opposition to one already operated by Preston's leading family, the Erbs. Mr Hespeler located a suitable site along the Grand River near its confluence with the Speed River. The evidence suggests that Mr Hespeler neglected to purchase water rights when he obtained the mill site and after beginning to dig the race needed to bring in the water that would power the mill was forced to abandon the site. He then turned to a site on King Street where he proceeded to erect a grist mill, a stone store and a distillery. Mr Hespeler became a fairly prominent businessman in Preston and served as the Captain of the Preston Hook and Ladder Co. when it was organized in 1844. It was at about this time that Mr Hespeler decided to broaden his business activities. Beginning on 6 Feb 1845 he purchased a total of 145 acres fronting on the Speed River in the settlement of New Hope. Mr Hespeler replaced the existing dam on his new property with a much bigger one in keeping with his ambitious plans for the site. He began with the building of a grist mill in 1847 followed shortly thereafter by a sawmill and a cooperage. These were followed by a gas house, a distillery and, in 1861, a stone woollen mill. He also built a stone housing block known as the "Riverside Terraces" which was built to house unmarried men working in his factories. He was also a major benefactor of both the Lutheran and Roman Catholic churches in the village, assisting in the construction of each. Although Mr Hespeler was increasingly involved with his growing business concerns in New Hope, he continued to maintain close ties to Preston. He continued operating his store, mill and distillery in Preston and in 1850 started a factory that was among the first in Canada to use the new "German" or "quick" method of vinegar production. Traditionally vinegar was made by a two stage process of natural fermentation which required several months to produce a complete vinegar. The new "German" process produced vinegar in a much shorter period. Mr Hespeler's vinegar was sent to the Great Exhibition at Hyde Park in London in 1851 and met with such acceptance that he began exporting his vinegar to the English market the following year. Mr Hespeler's activities extended beyond his business concerns. He was Preston's second postmaster serving in the position from 1851 to 1859. He served on Preston's council both in 1852, when he was elected as the newly incorporated village's first Reeve, and from 1854 to 1858, the last three years of which he was once again named Reeve. In 1852 he also served as Preston's representative on the first Waterloo County provisional council. Following his service on Preston's Council, Mr Hespeler was elected to serve as the first reeve of the newly incorporated and newly named Village of Hespeler, holding the office from 1859 to 1862. The incorporation of the settlement of New Hope as the village of Hespeler was due in no small part to the efforts of Jacob Hespeler and was, in part, based on the coming of the Great Western Railway to New Hope on its route from Galt to Guelph. The presence of the railway construction crews in the vicinity of New Hope encouraged Mr Hespeler to call for a census of the settlement in 1857 hoping to find enough "residents" to qualify for incorporation under the terms of the Ontario Municipal Act of 1849. Incorporation was essential to Mr Hespeler's plans for the settlement which could then separate from the county and elect its own Council with jurisdiction over all aspects of roads and bridges and a variety of other issues, the most important being the location of industries and the ability to make provision for fire protection and public health. The census was duly taken and on 31 July 1858 the government of her majesty Queen Victoria proclaimed that the settlement of New Hope would become the incorporated Village of Hespeler effective 1 Jan 1859. In 1861, Mr Hespeler ran as a Conservative candidate for the Legislative Assembly but was defeated by the Liberal James Cowan. He was never again a candidate for parliament but he maintained an involvement in later campaigns by providing advice and assistance. It was said that few people in the riding had as much influence with the electorate as Mr Hespeler. At about the same time Mr Hespeler sold his businesses in Preston and, in 1861, built a large stone woollen mill close to his other factories on the Speed River in Hespeler. This mill was severely damaged by fire in 1869 and shortly there after Mr Hespeler moved to California. He lived there for a number of years and then returned to Hespeler where he died on 22 Mar 1881. He is buried in New Hope Cemetery.1a

Wesleyan Methodist and Methodist New Connexion St. Paul's United Church

The earliest Methodist services were said to have begun in 1861 when the Rev. E.W. Frazee arrived in Preston. He organized a congregation which met at first in the upper room of a woolen mill on Eagle Street and then in the frame Lutheran church on King Street; members of the New Connexion Methodists began to meet in the Town Hall at about the same time. Rev. Charles Freshman, the German Wesleyan Methodist missionary, began preaching to English- and German-speaking congregations on May 3, 1862. In his autobiography Rev. Dr. Freshman is quoted: "I preached at St. George in the morning, Paris in the afternoon and at Preston in the evening. Our other regular appointments were Strasburg, Roseville, Conestoga [sic], New Dundee, Doon and occasionally in Princeton" (Freshman 1868:214).

A stone church was built at the corner of Duke and Argyle Streets in 1864 on property which had been donated by Jacob Hespeler; the church was opened on September 25, 1864. Dedicatory services were held in English by Mr. Rice and Mr. Carrol and in German by Rev. Freshman. Four acres of land between King and Queen (now Queenston Road) Streets were purchased from Jacob Hespeler on July 15, 1868 by the trustees of the Wesleyan Methodist and New Connexion churches. A newer, larger church was built on this property and completed on October 18, 1868. Although union of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Canada and the Methodist New Connexion Church did not occur until 1874 it is quite possible that the two congregations in Preston had already formed their own union with the building of the church in 1868. For some years it was a community church where other denominations also worshipped.

In 1871 the church was enlarged; the tower and spire were added at the same time. A Sunday School was built in 1875-1879 during the ministry of Rev. James McAllister. In 1877 the congregation was given permission to sell the old New Connexion Church and to apply the proceeds towards improvements on the new church. The Circuit was divided in 1883 when Preston, Zion and Doon were separated from Hespeler. In 1887 Preston was by itself, but at the Annual Conference in 1897 of the Methodist Church, Guelph Conference, Galt District, Preston was divided into a circuit consisting of Preston and Doon. The church became self-supporting at that time. Preston later was with Hespeler until 1909 when each became an independent charge. The congregation of Preston Methodist Church became Preston United Church in 1925 and later, in 1933, St. Paul's United Church. The cornerstone for a new Sunday School was laid in 1921; the addition was completed in 1922. Further additions were constructed in 1955 and 1967.2a

Shortly after Ferrie and Liebschuetz had opened stores in Preston, two young Germans who had been living in the United States, came to Preston and opened a store, in the premises first occupied by Liebschuetz. These two Germans were a Jew named Yost and Jacob Hespeler. They did a good business, but it appeared that Mr. Yost had committed some fraud in Philadelphia, was pursued, captured and taken to Hamilton jail to await his trial. Hespeler managed to make a compromise with Yost's creditors, upon receiving an assignment of all Yost's interests in the store. A short time afterwards Hespeler built a large store and extended his business to a considerable extent; he had also built a distillery some time before.3a

12418 William Hespeler was born at Baden-Baden, Germany on 29 December 1830, son of George H. and Barbara Hespeler, he was educated at the Institute at Karlsruhe. At the age of 19, he arrived at Preston, Ontario where his elder brother had a milling, distilling, and general merchandising business. From 1854 to 1868 he was a partner in the firm of Hespeler and Randall at Waterloo, Ontario. While visiting Germany, he discovered that a large number of Mennonites in southern Russia were contemplating emigration to the USA. Hespeler forwarded this information to the Canadian government, which asked him to travel to Russia to induce the group to come to Manitoba. This resulted in 284 families of Mennonites settling in 1874, with further groups arriving in 1875 and 1876.

In 1873, Hespeler became Commissioner of Immigration and Agriculture, which he filled until 1883. He was then appointed German Consul for Manitoba and the North-West Territories until 1909. In 1889, he was elected to the provincial legislature and chosen speaker of the house, the first foreign-born citizen to be so in the British Empire. He served as chief commissioner of census for the Province of Manitoba, 1881; appointed German Consul for Manitoba and NWT, 1883; decorated by the German Emperor with the Order of Red Eagle, 1903, and upon resigning office was decorated with Zaeringer Loewen Order by the German Emperor for long and faithful services. From 1883 to 1894, he was Manager of the Manitoba Land Company, then later a member of the board of the Royal Trust Company and the North of Scotland Mortgage Company. In 1880, he organized "The Northwestern," a German language weekly, the first German newspaper in the Northwest. He was a member of the board for the Winnipeg General Hospital starting in 1874, and president of the same starting in 1884, resigning from the board in 1909.

He was married twice; first to Mary H. Keatchie of Galt, Ontario (1855) then to Kate R. Keatchie. He had one son. Hespeler died on 18 April 1921, in Vancouver, BC1a

7,000 immigrants arrived in six years

Hespeler honored for bringing in Mennonites

The man who played the principal role in bringing the first Mennonites to Steinbach and area in 1874 was officially honored in Winnipeg Monday. A plaque commemorating William Hespeler (1830-1921) for his immigration work throughout the prairies was unveiled by Winnipeg MP Joy Smith on behalf of the federal government.

The trilingual plaque, produced by Parks Canada for the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada, recognizes Hespeler as a person of national historic significance. His namesake continues today, most notably in Niverville, which has a 94-acre park named in his honor, and who will be further recognized at this summer's community fair. It was just southwest of Niverville, at the junction of the Red and Rat rivers, where the first Mennonite immigrant group landed. Hespeler Park, at the south side of town, is equipped with ball diamonds, soccer pitches, picnic shelter, toboggan hill and an area set aside to further honor Hespeler's work.

Jim Buys, the town's chief administrative officer, who was part of a Niverville contingent attending the unveiling of the plaque at the University of Winnipeg, explained his community has worked closely with Parks Canada in this project. Former mayor Clare Braun, for one, began discussions years ago with the federal agency to look into ways of honoring Hespeler at the local level, Buys said. Sponsoring proponent to designate Hespeler is the German-Canadian Congress, Manitoba. The Niverville group on hand for the ceremony, in addition to Buys, included Mayor Greg Fehr and three members of the community's historical committee-Walter Rempel, Fred Kaita and Jake Isaac. It also included Mary DeGrow, great-great-granddaughter of William Hespeler, who lives in Winnipeg.

Buys said DeGrow is scheduled to visit Niverville in June during the annual fair. Her mother, who lives in southern Ontario, while unable to make the trip, may be able to send a message to the community in a video. The plaque unveiled on Monday will be placed in Niverville at a later date, said Lianne Roberts, executive services officer for the Manitoba field unit of Parks Canada in Winnipeg. Plans also call for planks from the elevator Hespeler built in Niverville in 1878 to be used in a commemorative project at the community's Heritage Centre. The cylindrical elevator, holding 25,000 bushels, was the first in Western Canada. The elevator years ago was adopted as the town's official symbol. The Hespeler name further lives on through a road named for him in the neighboring RM of Hanover as well as a major road in Steinbach. "William Hespeler was truly a remarkable man," said Smith at Monday's ceremony. "Entrepreneur, immigration official, commissioner of immigration and agriculture, politician and philanthropist, William Hespeler played a key role in the first great wave of immigrants to Manitoba, and helped demonstrate the enormous agricultural potential of the Canadian Prairies."

Coming to Canada from Germany at the age of 19, Hespeler first joined his brother's business in the German-speaking community of Waterloo, Ont. Toward the middle of the 1860s, Hespeler left his lucrative business ventures and, in mid-life, made a career change to become an immigration official for the Dominion of Canada. He succeeded in attracting some 7,000 Mennonites to emigrate from Russia to Canada between 1874 and 1880. This new Canadian of German descent put his determination and ingenuity at the service of his adopted country.

In addition to his role in Mennonite immigration, and hence in the settlement of Western Canada, Hespeler distinguished himself for over 45 years following his settlement in Winnipeg as a philanthropist and politician representing the interests of German-speaking communities. "William Hespeler's success was a result not only of his dedication and commitment but also due to his ability to seize the opportunity, his assertive personality and his ingenuity," added Smith. For many years Hespeler was actively involved in all aspects of the immigrant movement, beginning with trips to Russia to recruit prospective immigrants to hands-on work in Canada when they arrived.

_______________________________

WILLIAM (Wilhelm), businessman, office holder, politician, and jp; b. 29 Dec. 1830 in the Grand Duchy of Baden (Germany), second son of Johann Georg Hespeler and Anna Barbara Wick; m. first 21 Dec. 1854 Mary H. Keatchie (d. 1872) of Galt (Cambridge), Upper Canada, and they had three children, two of whom survived to adulthood; m. secondly 15 Dec. 1874 Mary Meyer (d. 1883) of Seaforth, Ont.; m. thirdly 6 April 1887 Catherine Robertson, née Keatchie (d. 1920), a sister of his first wife, in Port Arthur (Thunder Bay, Ont.); no children were born of the second or third marriages; d. 18 April 1921 in Vancouver.

William Hespeler grew up in a bourgeois household in Baden, his father a prosperous merchant and his mother related to Hungarian aristocracy. The family's nine children, two boys and seven girls, received extensive education in German, French, and English. They were steeped in the family's mercantile tradition and imbued with a sense of adventure which was tempered only by the inherent social conservatism of their class. The Hespelers believed not only in technological but also in political progress. Their hopes for democratic reform in Baden were dashed when the revolution of 1848 failed. The family valued service to the public and its members would frequently participate in civic and political affairs.

Through chain migration started by William's elder brother, Jacob, most of the family eventually came to settle in Upper Canada, in the area around Berlin (Kitchener) and Waterloo. In this largely German enclave, Hespeler, who arrived in 1850, demonstrated his willingness to reach beyond his ethnic and religious background (he was Lutheran) by marrying a Canadian-born woman of Scottish-Presbyterian descent. He soon proved his business acumen as well, working initially in his brother's milling, distilling, and general merchandising business in Preston (Cambridge). In 1854 he set up a similar business in Waterloo with George Randall. A few years later the partners built the Granite Mills and the Waterloo Distillery. By 1861 the flourishing business was producing 12,000 barrels of flour and 2,700 barrels of whiskey; it employed 15 men.

In the 1870s Hespeler's career took a different turn. According to one account, Hespeler, a naturalized British subject, briefly served as a stretcher-bearer during the Franco-German war of 1870-71. He returned to Canada but by the spring of 1872 he had left his business in the care of an employee, Joseph Emm Seagram*, and had taken his ailing wife and two surviving children to Baden. On 2 Feb. 1872 he had been appointed special immigration agent for Germany by the Canadian government. With the help of shipping agents of the Allan Line [see Sir Hugh Allan*], he recruited new settlers, especially from the war-ravaged province of Alsace. That summer the Canadian government sent him to southern Russia, a region from which large numbers of German-speaking Mennonites wanted to immigrate. Despite considerable opposition from Russian authorities and little support from British diplomats, he arranged for several thousand Mennonites to move to Canada [see Gerhard Wiebe*].

Rewarded by the federal minister of agriculture, John Henry Pope*, with an appointment as dominion immigration agent for Manitoba and the North-West Territories (a position he would hold until 1882), the recently widowed Hespeler moved permanently to Winnipeg in 1873. Through his work in providing temporary shelter and emergency provisions as well as in directing newcomers to available lands, he had close dealings not only with the Mennonite settlements but also with the early Icelandic settlements [see Jón Bjarnason*]; he was similarly involved in organizing relief for Jewish refugees [see Benjamin Zimmerman]. Uncomfortable with the government's laissez-faire approach to the establishment of recent arrivals, he took a paternalistic view of aid. He did not mind combining the government's relief with his own economic self-interest as a grain merchant. He delighted in planning new settlements, such as Niverville, and in exploring agricultural innovations. Together with his son he erected what is said to have been the first grain elevator in western Canada, in 1879. He deftly explored the entrepreneurial opportunities of the frontier, acquiring rural and city plots, dealing in mortgages and loans, and acting as a middleman between the Winnipeg business community and the Mennonite settlements. From 1886 to 1905 he would serve as manager of the Manitoba Land Company. He soon became known as an expert on western Canadian development.

By the mid 1870s, remarried and at his energetic best, Hespeler proved his civic-mindedness in many ways. He was elected alderman for Winnipeg's South Ward in 1876 and 1878, joined the board of the Winnipeg General Hospital (he would serve as its president for more than a decade, starting in 1889), and on 25 Nov. 1876 was appointed to the provisional council of Keewatin to deal with the smallpox epidemic of 1876-77. By 1876 he had also been appointed a justice of the peace. Involved in the Anglo-Saxon community of Winnipeg, he was also active among the city's small German population. His second wife was of German origin and he himself participated in German singing and social clubs in the late 1870s and mid 1880s.

When the German government sought an honorary consul for Winnipeg and the North-West Territories in 1882, Hespeler was a natural choice. This unsalaried position allowed him to pursue his business interests and it would help him overcome personal tragedies - the death of his second wife in 1883 and that of his daughter, Georgina Hope, wife of Augustus Meredith Nanton, in 1886. As consul, he maintained his connections with the growing German community of the city. In 1888, for example, he supported the establishment of a German Lutheran congregation in Winnipeg. The following year he was instrumental in setting up a German-language newspaper, the Nordwesten. Although the consular workload became increasingly heavy in the new century, he would stay on until July 1907. In 1903 he was rewarded with the German Order of the Red Eagle for 20 years of service.

At age 69 Hespeler moved into the political arena. His reputation for thoroughness and common sense and his close association with the Mennonite community won him the rural seat of Rosenfeld in the provincial general election of 7 Dec. 1899 as an independent candidate with Conservative leanings. Once elected, however, he declared himself against the government of Conservative premier Hugh John Macdonald. On 29 March 1900 he became speaker of the Legislative Assembly, one of the earliest persons who were not born British subjects to hold this position in any legislative body in the British empire - but not the first, as has been claimed. Lacking vanity and a sense of self-importance, he left politics a few years later to make way for a younger person.

Hespeler's business activities had laid the foundation for considerable wealth that promised a comfortable old age with his third wife, Catherine. He continued to serve on the boards of numerous financial institutions and could have lived out his final years quietly enjoying the fruits of his labour in his luxurious apartment block in Fort Rouge (Winnipeg), designed for him by noted architect John D. Atchison in 1906. World War I intervened, however. Hespeler's German connections suddenly tainted the man and his achievements. He refused to be cowed by the nativist hostility of the period and devoted his energy to helping recent German immigrants who had lost their jobs. The city, and the rest of Canada, soon forgot him.

In his final months, after the death of his third wife in 1920, Hespeler moved to Vancouver to be with his son, Alfred. He died there and was buried in St John's Anglican cemetery in Winnipeg, among the city's pioneers. His obituary remembered him as a man "who was at one time so foremost in the life of the province."

In 1863 he sold his property north of Queen Street, east of Harvey to Fred. Guggisburg of Preston and in the year 1864 occupied the house on it as Tenant1a

1aLe Rue De Commerce, Other Times Other Customs Other Days Other Ways, Winfield Brewster 1954

____________________________

In 1841, Frederick Guggisburg started making chairs in Preston. Later he expanded his line to include pieces of furniture which were made largely by hand of such exquisite design and splendid workmanship that he found his limited space inadequate to cope with the demand from people who could afford to pay his price and wanted pieces of really fine furniture for their homes.

Some of this old Guggisburg furniture is still to be encountered here and there in homes where its present owners continue to admire the lovely lines and count it priceless. It is not for sale.

On December 11th, 1849, Jacob Hespeler invoiced Mr. Guggisburg in Preston with 11,281 feet of maple two by fours (sawn here) at $13.00 per M feet. This was probably used in making furniture. Prior to 1846 there was a carpenter here named Adam Hess who owned a house property on the north side of Queen Street east of Harvey. He had previously purchased the property from Michael Bergey and through it ran a small creek which carried water from several springs on the side hill down to the river.

In 1863, Hess sold his property to Fred. Guggisburg and in 1864 was tenant of the house on it. In 1866, Fred. Guggisburg is rated as owner of two acres on the north side of Queen Street, evidently the Hess lot, and other property between it and the river. In this year, George Guenther appears as Tenant of the Hess house. In 1871, Mr. Guenther bought one-fifth of an acre from Guggisburg, probably the house where he was living as tenant. The year following, that is, 1872, Guggisburg goes out of our picture and Mr. Guenther is shown as owner.

Previously, on March 5th, 1861, Guenther purchased from Joseph Oberholtzer seventy-four and three-quarters perches of land, part of lot ten, in the second concession, that is west of Harvey Street.2a

12422 Mrs. M. Seyffert Dies at Preston In 104th Year

In her 104th year, Mrs. Margaretha Seyffert, of Preston, passed away quietly in her sleep on Sunday. Mrs. Seyffert retired early Saturday evening and passed away about 4.30 in the morning. Mrs. Seyffert was born in Hessen in Germany in the year 1831, on August 17th. Her parents, who were Maria and Adam John Hess emigrated to Canada when she was five years of age. The party landed at New York and journeyed to Albany, N.Y. and later to Rochester, thence to Charlotte, across the waters of Lake Ontario to Hamilton in Canada. The trip through the bush was fraught with dangers in those days and the party finally arrived in safety at the home of Valentine Ratz, a cousin of the deceased. After spending about two months in that place they went on to Kingbush and later still to Bergeyville. From Bergeyville they journeyed to New Hope, now Hespeler where they first settled. As a child Mrs. Seyffert attended the Bergeyville school which stood opposite the home of C. T. Groh. Mrs. Seyffert was the last living attendant at that historical Institution of learning. Mrs. Seyffert had the honor of being the oldest living attendant at the Lutheran Church in Preston which celebrated its centenary this year. Her marriage to Mr. Frederick Seyffert took place in the Lutheran Church in Waterloo, Rev. Wunderlich performed the ceremony. Mr. Seyffert was born in Ochenburg, Wurtemberg, Germany. He died at the age of 78. The marriage took place in the year 1852. There are numbered among the survivors, five daughters and two sons. They are: Rose and Margaretha who have remained at home with their mother during her declining years: Mrs. Frederick Lippert of Walkerton; Mrs. Samuel Branch of Buffalo, N.Y., Mrs. James Soutar of Preston, William of Kitchener and Frederick of Detroit. One daughter, Amelia, predeceased her besides her husband. The funeral. which was widely attended, was held from the home on Tuesday, followed by the usual church services at St. Peter's Lutheran Church.

After summoning the aid of neighbors he was carried into his house and the docor called immediately.

Mr. and Mrs. Hett celebrated their golden weeking anniversary October 16, 1928, which proved to be a joyful event for these aged people as well as their children, other relatives and friends.

Mr. Hett worked in the real pioneer spirit, starting with meager funds and industriously applying himself until he was able to enjoy covenient prosperity in his later years.

Still more important was the Christian influence which he manifested in his home and community. The blessing which he received from his Creator and the many friends that he made during his earthly life is an indication of the kind and christian life he lived.1a

According to the Registrar of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, Dr. Hett was registered with the College on May 29, 1891. His name was erased from their register as of April 16, 1937, and restored by order of the Council on April 2, 1938. An item in the New York Times, September 26, 1956, stated that Dr. Hett's name was erased from the register when he refused to divulge the formula for a serum that he insisted would cure ar thritis, diabetes, peptic ulcers and cancer. . . In 1938, he was reinstated after he allowed a special Provincial Government inquiry to check the formula. It was found to be medically harmless, but of unproved value.2a

1aA Few Notes on the Early History of Chalmers' Church, Winterbourne" - by Rev. A. M. Hamilton, M. A.

____________________________


At this corner, where the road divides, several of the earliest settlers made: their homes. The first to take up land near Capt.. Smith's was Elisha Hewitt, who was born in Cayuga, in northern New York State, in January 1800. His mother was a native of Maryland. He came to Canada in 1819, giving a jacknife to get across the Niagara River at Black Rock. He first worked for John Brubacher, near Berlin, and after that, for four years, at any job he might find. When he came to the township of Waterloo his capital consisted of half a dollar and an extra pair of socks. He sold his socks and then he had enough to buy an axe. From this small beginning he acquired several hundred acres of land. Not only this, but he was married three times and raised a family of fifteen children.

In the fall of the year 1823 Elisha Hewitt took up his farm in the township of Woolwich and in the same year married Rachel Cress, who, with her father, mother, two brothers and a sister, had come along with Mr. Erb in 1806. The Cress family settled at what is now St. Jacob's, in Woolwich, while Mr. Erb was in Waterloo township. One thing that is remembered of Elisha Hewitt is that he made large quantities of maple sugar.

Rachel Cress, Hewitt's first wife, died Dec. 2nd, 1846, at the age of 49 years and eight months. In the first family were: Ephriam married Jane Wright, moved to Wisconsin. Eliza married to Josh. Scheidel, lives in Berlin. Elisha married Catherine Benner, lived on the next farm north of C. D. Bowman's near West Montrose, and is now living in Berlin. Elizabeth married to Alex. Singer, moved to Michigan. Mary married to James Woolner, lives in Peel' township. Peter married Margaret Donaldson ; their home was in Winterboume. Rachel, who is Mrs. Pollock, now living near the old home.It is a remarkable fact that of the first family of seven all are yet living but Elizabeth and she was killed by a runaway accident.

Hewitt's second wife was Elspet Meldrum, who died Jan. 28th, 1860, at the age of 48 years and 3 months. In this family were: Margaret married to John Hillcock, Peterborough. Charlotte married to Daniel Kennedy, 'Toronto. Annie married in Tonawanda, 'N. Y. Jessie married to Joseph Benner, moved to Culross towmship where she died. Helen married Rev. Mr. Groff, lived near Breslau. Alexander died when a young man.

The third wife was Ann Hamilton, and their two children were Elsie and Wilhelmina, who with their mother, who married again, went to live at Ripley, near Kincardine.

Elisha Hewitt died October 8th, 1863, at the age of 63 years and 9 months.2a

KITCHENER \emdash Lawrence "Dick" Hewitt was at home, listening to the Saturday night radio broadcast of the Maple Leafs game against Chicago when a ringing telephone cut through the play-by-play.

It was late, after 10 p.m., and he didn't say who the caller was. Hewitt, fighting off a nagging cold, fetched his jacket, fired up his taxi and headed out into the dark.

Four hours after he left his King Street East apartment, the 29-year-old cabbie was found dead \emdash lying on his back in a frozen ditch off the Kitchener-Preston highway, on the southern outskirts of town. A bullet had pierced his heart....1a

Ben is survived by his brother, Alfred; his daughters, Barbara (Alex) Dmitrienko and Donna (Gary) Dmitrienko; grandsons, Iain (Iwona) and Bruce (Becky) Dmitrienko; granddaughters, Klaudia (Todd) (Dmitrienko) and Catherine (Mark) Dmitrienko; and five beautiful great-grandchildren, Natalia, David, Benjamin, Brody and Anya. Ben served his country proudly in the forestry corps and the air force in the Second World War and was the last surviving member of his Lancaster flight crew. We remember him, not only as a caring husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, but also as a fiercely determined and independent individual with a sharp sense of humour, an intense curiosity about the world, and a lifelong commitment to learning that has inspired us all. Much loved, he is sadly missed. Cremation has taken place. A memorial gathering is being planned for this spring. Details will be announced at a later date.1a

Mr. Daniel Hibner was mayor of Berlin in 1894-5 and reeve for three years. The chief item of business transacted during his terms as mayor was the breaking of the deadlock on the Park Board, they standing at sixes and sevens, as to whether to purchase the land which now comprises Victoria Park or not. His action in favor of purchasing is a tribute to his wisdom and foresight. After eighteen years he is proud to see what a beautiful park it has become. He is at present chairman of the Parks Commission and Mr. Hibner takes a deal of interest in the city's welfare. He also sat in the county council for thirteen years.1a

12505 Preston (Bechtel or Hagey) Mennonite Church

The second meeting house in Waterloo County was built, probably in 1814, by John Erb, a wealthy miller of Preston. This brick meeting house served as a community church and was located "near Jacob Hagey's", which was on the road running from the top of the Kress Hill west and "adjoining the Kitchener Highway" (Witmer 1967:26). Another meeting house, known as the Union Meeting House, was built in the area around 1824. A meeting was held in the Union church on November 20, 1824 to commence recording the accounts of the congregation in Hagey's Deacon Book. The deed of land for the Union Meeting House and burial ground, which was for one acre of part Lot 22, Beasley's Broken Front, was transacted in 1835.

Hagey Meeting House was buiilt of red brick in 1842 on part Lot 23, just north of Preston on the west side of the Breslau Road, and slightly north of the Union Meeting House site. The deed, dated February 2, 1842, recorded the purchase of the land from John Hilborn and stressed that the property was to be for "the purpose of public worship by the Mennonist Society" (Witmer 1967:28). Joseph Bechtel was the first minister in the area, from 1804-1837; he was followed by David Sherk (1838-1843). Next came Joseph Hagey (1844-1877), who was ordained bishop in 1851, and then Jacob B. Gingrich from 1878 to 1901. Services were held every four weeks until 1890 when bi-weekly services were begun. A Sunday School was established in 1842 with the congregation of Wanner Meeting House near Hespeler, but it was discontinued because of a difference of opinion regarding the need for Sunday Schools. On April 26, 1891 a Sunday School was organized at Hagey's, with deacon Abraham Oberholtzer as superintendent. Five years later, on June 10, 1896, a Sunday School was organized at the Wanner church.

Major changes were made to the church building in 1927-1928 when the basement was excavated, new windows were installed and the roof was raised two feet. Fire on January 15, 1950 caused extensive damage to the interior and furnishings of the church. The building was completely renovated and also enlarged at the same time; dedication was on July 2, 1950. Another fire, on Feburary 19, 1953, completely destroyed the church. A congregational decision was made to build a new church, on Concession Road in Preston, and the cornerstone was laid on Thanksgiving Day, October 12, 1953. Official dedication services in the new Preston Mennonite Church were held on May 16, 1954. The building was enlarged in the summer of 1989.1

12507 NELSON HILBORN. a pioneer farmer in Bosanquet township, has been a resident of that locality for nearly fifty-one years. The fine old homestead there, where he is now carrying on a highly successful industry, he helped his father to hew out of the wilderness.

Mr. Hilborn is paternally descended from fine English stock, and from the mater nal line draws good Pennsylvania-Dutch blood. His great-grandfather Hilborn was the first of his line to settle in America, and made his home for the most part in Pennsyl vania. Among his children was a son named Joseph, who continued the line of descent.

Joseph Hilborn, grandfather of Nelson, was born in Philadelphia, about 1783, and at an early date came to Ontario, settling upon a farm in Waterloo County. Here he engaged in agriculture for the most part throughout Ins active career, and, being an energetic man and a shrewd manager, was remarkably prosperous. His activities, however, were soon cut short, as his death occurred at the early age of thirty years. He married Esther Cornell, daughter of Sylvanus Cornell, and to Mr. and Mrs. Hilborn were born three children : Thomas, who is now deceased; Annie, who married William Anglemyer, and died at the advanced age of ninety years; and John C, who is mentioned below.

John C. Hilborn, father of Nelson, was a man of ability and many attainments. He was born at Preston, Ont., May 11, 1813, and in a well-ordered home received careful rearing. In the schools of that vicinity he acquired a good education, and being of an intellectual bent availed himself of every opportunity for cultivating his literary tastes. For an occupation he chose tanning, which he followed from the age of fourteen to the age of twenty-four. About 1852 he settled upon a tract of wild land in Bosanquet township, where he cleared up a line farm for himself, and there he also followed tanning, and, giving strict attention to bus iness, and being skillful in pushing affairs, he made an unqualified success of his work. In addition to his other enterprises Mr. Hil born early began acting as preacher for various rural communities, and for fully sixty years acted in that capacity, even in his busiest seasons giving much time to this work. A wise and frugal manager, he made well out of his various enterprises, and in time became one of the well-to-do citizens of Bosanquet township. After many years of fruitful work he retired from his labors, and took up his residence with his son for twelve years. Then he was married again, to Mrs. Susan Toole. and removed to Thedford, where he lived retired until his death. Feb. 23, 1808. at the age of eighty-four years and nine months.

During his young manhood Mr. Hilborn married Sarah Anglemyer. who was born in Pennsylvania in 1809, and who died in 1878. By this union there were nine children : Joseph, who is now a resident of Guelph ; Elizabeth, who married Andrew Mitchell; Adam and Samuel, who died young; Nelson, who is mentioned below ; Margaret, who married Lyman Swan, and is now deceased ; William, a farmer of Bosanquet township; John, a farmer of the same localit ; and Jacob, who is engaged in farming in Michigan.

Mr. Hilborn was gifted in many lines and possessed the rare power of making a success of whatever he turned his hand to. He was an indefatigable worker, had rare business ability, and exerted a strong influence in all walks of life. His devotion to his work and his high moral attributes, as well as his many social graces, won him the respect and confidence of the community, and he made friends for himself at every step in life.

Nelson Hilborn was born in Waterloo township, Waterloo County, July 28, 1842, and was a boy when his parents came to Lambton County and settled in Bosanquet township. Capable for his years, he even then went to work, axe in hand, to cut down the timber on his father s new farm. He also assisted in removing the timber which during the winter became lodged in the ice, for about a mile west from Thedford, along the Grand Trunk railroad. Ambitious for an education, he passed his evenings after a hard day s work in study, beside an old-time tallow candle, and in this way acquired a large fund of useful and practical knowledge. It was during this early period that the .town of Thedford was laid out, and it was Mr. Hilborn who drove the yoke of oxen to mark the site. Reared as a pioneer, upon reaching manhood he was not afraid to take a hand at any work which fell his way, and as a young man he cut and split cordwood into stove lengths, which he hauled to Pine Hill and marketed, receiving $1.25 per cord and his dinner. On Sept. 17, 1868, Mr. Hilborn married Miss Margaret L. Mitchell, who was horn in New Brunswick, slaughter of Andrew Mitchell. To Mr. and Mrs. Hilborn have been born three children: Franklin, who died at the age of four years; Miss Sarah Esther, at home; and John Nelson, a farmer of Bosanquet township. who married Mrs. Maud (William-son) Laughlin.

After his marriage Mr. Hilborn settled upon the farm in Bosanquet township where he now resides. With a $6,000 debt upon his shoulders he went to work with energy and determination, and. by economy and wise management soon removed the incumbrance. He also improved his property, and in time made it into one of the most attractive farms in the locality. He has trans-formed large areas into well-furrowed grain fields and thriving gardens, and raised thereon some of the most valuable crops produced in the vicinity. A good manager, he has made well out of his industry, and is nosy one of the wealthy farmers of his locality. His place embraces 150 acres, has attractive buildings, and is well equipped with everything necessary for carrying on his in-dustry successfully.

Mr. Hilborn possesses great energy and the wisdom to direct it properly to the everyday affairs of life. He is a hard worker, and has derived good money returns front Isis labors. His achievements and his force of character have won him the confidence of the community, and he is widely known and everywhere most highly respected. A con-sistent member of the Methodist Church, he is a man of firm religions convictions and throughout his life has espoused the cause of every enterprise for the uplifting of his fellow-citizens. Politically he affiliates with the Conservatives. He has been a most conscientious husband and father, and has assisted his children to good places in life.

Andrew Mitchell, Mrs. Hilborn's father, was born in Ireland in 1812, and his parents were of Irish and Scotch birth, respectively; they were married in New Brunswick. He married Annie Rutherford, who was born in Scotland in 1814.

12508 NELSON HILBORN. a pioneer farmer in Bosanquet township, has been a resident of that locality for nearly fifty-one years. The fine old homestead there, where he is now carrying on a highly successful industry, he helped his father to hew out of the wilderness.

Mr. Hilborn is paternally descended from fine English stock, and from the mater nal line draws good Pennsylvania-Dutch blood. His great-grandfather Hilborn was the first of his line to settle in America, and made his home for the most part in Pennsyl vania. Among his children was a son named Joseph, who continued the line of descent.

Joseph Hilborn, grandfather of Nelson, was born in Philadelphia, about 1783, and at an early date came to Ontario, settling upon a farm in Waterloo County. Here he engaged in agriculture for the most part throughout Ins active career, and, being an energetic man and a shrewd manager, was remarkably prosperous. His activities, however, were soon cut short, as his death occurred at the early age of thirty years. He married Esther Cornell, daughter of Sylvanus Cornell, and to Mr. and Mrs. Hilborn were born three children : Thomas, who is now deceased; Annie, who married William Anglemyer, and died at the advanced age of ninety years; and John C, who is mentioned below.

In the schools of that vicinity he acquired a good education, and being of an intellectual bent availed himself of every opportunity for cultivating his literary tastes. For an occupation he chose tanning, which he followed from the age of fourteen to the age of twenty-four. About 1852 he settled upon a tract of wild land in Bosanquet township, where he cleared up a line farm for himself, and there he also followed tanning, and, giving strict attention to bus iness, and being skillful in pushing affairs, he made an unqualified success of his work. In addition to his other enterprises Mr. Hil born early began acting as preacher for various rural communities, and for fully sixty years acted in that capacity, even in his busiest seasons giving much time to this work. A wise and frugal manager, he made well out of his various enterprises, and in time became one of the well-to-do citizens of Bosanquet township. After many years of fruitful work he retired from his labors, and took up his residence with his son for twelve years. Then he was married again, to Mrs. Susan Toole. and removed to Thedford, where he lived retired until his death. Feb. 23, 1808. at the age of eighty-four years and nine months.

He also assisted in removing the timber which during the winter became lodged in the ice, for about a mile west from Thedford, along the Grand Trunk railroad. Ambitious for an education, he passed his evenings after a hard day s work in study, beside an old-time tallow candle, and in this way acquired a large fund of useful and practical knowledge. It was during this early period that the .town of Thedford was laid out, and it was Mr. Hilborn who drove the yoke of oxen to mark the site. Reared as a pioneer, upon reaching manhood he was not afraid to take a hand at any work which fell his way, and as a young man he cut and split cordwood into stove lengths, which he hauled to Pine Hill and marketed, receiving $1.25 per cord and his dinner.

He also improved his property, and in time made it into one of the most attractive farms in the locality. He has trans-formed large areas into well-furrowed grain fields and thriving gardens, and raised thereon some of the most valuable crops produced in the vicinity. A good manager, he has made well out of his industry, and is nosy one of the wealthy farmers of his locality. His place embraces 150 acres, has attractive buildings, and is well equipped with everything necessary for carrying on his in-dustry successfully.

A Gem in the Heart of Cambridge

The passion Elinor and John Hueton have for Dumfries Conservation Area is evident with every footfall as they walk through this hidden gem in the centre of Cambridge. They know this land intimately. Elinor was born in Cambridge (Preston) in a home on the banks of the Grand River in 1931. Many of her early memories relate to the river \emdash playing hockey on it, visiting the islands in its centre and climbing a big "Christopher Robin" tree to look out and see the Doon Pinnacle in the distance before the tower was constructed. John became an environmentalist during his teens in Cape Town, South Africa. Although they spent most of their lives away, they moved back to Puslinch in 1990. "My father was an environmentalist long before his time. He bought the first farm in 1916 and others up to 1967. He wanted to preserve some untouched green space in the heart of the city in which people could relax and enjoy nature," Elinor said. He donated the land for a park to the province, which later turned it over to the GRCA to develop and mannage.

They formed the Friends of Dumfries Conservation Area, an organization made up of neighbours and people interested in the park, who have been concerned about development around the park. The group has done their best to promote and protect the piece of wilderness in the heart of the city. In 1998 Elinor received a Grand River Conservation Watershed Award and her father received a posthumous Honour Roll award in 1976, the first year this award was given out by the GRCA. Dumfries has many other supporters including the three Rotary Clubs of Cambridge and nearby Babcock and Wilcox. "We're continuing a legacy started by my father, Percy Hilborn, who donated 75 hectares of land 43 years ago so it could be kept unspoiled as a quiet park in perpetuity. His ideas were reinforced by my late sister Helen Bridle, who was also a steward of the property," Elinor said. What they love most is to walk through with a first-time visitor. They revel in the delighted exclamations at some of the biggest trees in Waterloo Region, the old growth forest, the plantation forests planted by Elinor's father, a babbling creek, five wetlands and the Hilborn Arboretum. The terrain is varied which makes it full of surprises. The Huetons estimate 150,000 visits are made to Dumfries each year, but still many residents have never stepped inside the vast interior. Dumfries is what the GRCA calls a passive recreation area, since it is not used for camping or swimming and it is free to visitors. John recalls a teacher who brought his class to a forested area and then asked the students to be quiet for five minutes. Their comments were, "but it is so silent." "At the centre of the woods surrounded by busy roads and shopping centres, you can find a perfect silence but for the sigh of the wind and the trees above," John said. The Hilborn Arboretum In 1984, the Hilborn Arboretum was developed on two hectares at the corner of Dunbar Road and Hespeler Road by the Preston, Hespeler, and Galt Horticultural Societies. The Arboretum was a provincial centennial year project. Nearly 1,000 trees and shrubs were planted, including approximately 75 tree species.2a

12529 THE FOUNDING OF PORT ELGIN

Port Elgin's development began when, in 1854, Benjamin Shantz, one of Saugeen Township's early settlers, acquired from George Butchart a sawmill on Mill Creek. Nearby he built a grist-mill and within three years a community of 250 people had developed around these mills. Stores, hotels and tanneries were constructed and in March, 1857, a village plot named Port Elgin was laid out. The enterprise of its businessmen, notably Henry Hilker, Samuel Bricker and John Stafford, contributed to the development of the settlement, which had a population of over 600 by 1867. The arrival of the Wellington, Grey and Bruce Railway in 1872 further stimulated the growth of the community and it was incorporated as a Village in 1874 with a population of about 950.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------
It seems that all four of the Hilker males, sons of William and Henriette Hilker (1851 Census, Waterloo Twp, Waterloo Co. ON) moved from Waterloo Co. to District 28, North Bruce, ON. In the 1871 Census, Henry, 46, is listed as a Merchant in sub-district "B", Saugeen, Page 39: Adam, 37, farmer, is in the same sub-district, Page 33: Benjamin, 27, no occupation listed, is in the same sub-district, Page 55 with his 26-yr-old wife Abigail (nee Detweiler) and 7-month-old daughter, Nancy, and a 28-yr-old boarder of French origin, Louis Sees, b. in the USA. Louis Sees is my (Dianne's) Great Grandfather. Abigail Detweiler's niece, Angelina Detweiler married Louis Sees.

The 4th Hilker son who migrated to North Bruce is listed in the 1871 Census as a builder, age 31, living in Southampton Village, Page 27.

Henry Hilker, the oldest of the 4 boys, is a famous original settler of the town of Port Elgin. He came in 1853. He was the 1st Reeve. He had a general store on Goderich Street in the center of town which he ran for years with Mr. Ruby (Ruby Hilker) It later became Hilker Co. A major street is named after this town founder, Henry Hilker.

Henry's youngest brother, Benjamin migrated to the USA with his wife, Abigail and 3 kids about 1874. They settled in Mower County, Minnesota. About 5 years later, Abigail's brother, George D. Detweiler and his wife, Elizabeth "Betsy" (Kepkey) moved with their 3 Ontario-born kids to Mower County MN. The 1880 MN census shows these two families living on the same farm in Lansing Township, Mower Co., Enumeration District 170, Page 574C, Line 37, Dwelling No. 28. By that time, June 8th, 1880, there were 12 people in this extended family.

We've been able to learn more about the descendants of these Hilker/Detweiler families, which we can talk about if you are interested. Because Henry Hilker was such an important pioneer and pillar in the town of Port Elgin, Bruce Co., ON, the histories of that town, Saugeen Township and North Bruce County are rich with Hilker information, lore and photographs

12538 The announcement on Saturday last of the death of Mr. Geo. Hill, of Spokane, Wash., came as a shock to his friends here, who wore not aware of his illness. It is particularly sad as Mr. Hill had written only a few days before to some of his relatives saying he would visit Wellesley in July. He has been in the shoe business in Spokane since leaving Wellesley about 18 years ago. Erysipelas was the cause of his death at the early age of 41 [?] years. He leaves a wife (formerly Miss Schmidt, of Seabringsville [sic]) and two children to whom the sympathy of Wellesley is extended and also to the brothers and sisters of deceased.1a

12540 Northward from Bond Head, two miles and a half, another village arose at an early date, and was known as Latimer's Corners from the name of the innkeeper of the place. It was also called Springville, but this name did not adhere to it, and it finally appears on the map as Newton Robinson. At Newton Robinson settlers arrived almost as early as at Bond Head. James Hill settled in Tecumseth here in 1825, near the edge of the wide swamp northward, over which there was a good view. Thomas and Edward Matchett arived amongst the first settlers of the neighborhood and took up lots 1 and 2 respectively in the 10th concession. Isaiah Rogers came to lot 3, con. 10, with his family from King Township in 1827; and John Lee located about the same time on lot 3, con. 11.1a

12574 The Hilliard House was built in 1880 for Thomas Hilliard, publisher and editor of the Waterloo Chronicle.
The two-storey yellow brick home is an attractive interpretation of the Victorian style. The hip roof, heavy ornamental brackets under the eaves, stained glass windows, projecting bays and porches are all features which distinguish the architectural style from its plain Georgian predecessors.
Thomas Hilliard is also remembered for his association with the Dominion Life Assurance Company, the Waterloo Horticultural Society, the Board of Education and many years of dedicated church service in the Methodist Church (now First United Church) which earned him great respect among his peers.
All facades are recognized for its historical and architectural significance for this designation.1a

12578 In 1868 William Hilliard was born in Glen Allen where his father owned a small newspaper. Upon completion of school, he attended the University of Toronto where he graduated as a doctor in 1891 at the age of 23. When his family moved to Waterloo, Hilliard accompanied them, setting up a medical practice in the town in 1897. He became Medical Director for Equitable Life Assurance Company when it was established in 1920 and also became a director of the Dominion Life Assurance Company, a business his father had helped establish. Hilliard was an enthusiastic Methodist lay reader and a strong supporter of the British war effort during World War I. A sports enthusiast, he continued to lead an active lifestyle into his 90s. When he was elected Mayor in 1916 \endash 1917, Hilliard became one of only two men in the town's history to assume this position without first having served on council. The war years saw council, under Hilliard's leadership, support the British war effort and a soldiers' insurance plan for local recruits. On the home front, the question of amalgamation with Berlin was rejected in 1916, improvements in service were made to the Berlin and Waterloo Street Railway and the municipality purchased William Snider's mill pond, a key piece of property in the town's core. Following his mayoral term, Hilliard continued his medical practice and later served as the Town of Waterloo's Medical Officer of Health from 1940 \endash 1946.

12580 The Allan Hills Edge Tool Co. operated under that name between late 1909 and 1916. One reference to the Allan Hills Edge Tool Co. included a caveat that they were "Est. In 1844." That dating most likely referred to their earliest predecessor, The Galt Axe Co. Reports indicate that Allan Hills was listed as being active in Galt, Ontario, ca 1861. That activity primarily involved steel making but Hills may have had a secondary involvement in edge tool manufacturing. Hills may also have been involved with the Galt Axe Co. by sharing space with that company considerably before he, or the company bearing his name, actually acquired the company that had taken over the Galt Axe Co. Allan Hills

12585 Trinity Anglican Church

An Anglican missionary, Rev. Michael Boomer, arrived in Galt in 1840 to organize the community's first Anglican congregation. Services were held in the Township Hall until the fall of 1844 when a new stone church was completed. The building was opened and consecrated in October, 1844 by Dr. Strachan, Bishop of the Diocese of Toronto. Land for the church had been donated by the Dickson family and the cost of the building was assumed largely by the Dicksons and by Absalom Shade. The first Rector of Trinity Church, Rev. Michael Boomer, was to minister to the Galt congregation until moving to London in 1872 when he became Principal of Huron College and Dean of the Huron diocese. Dean Boomer was followed by Reverend Canons Brock (1872-1873), Curran (1873-1877), Hinks (1877-1886) and Rev. Canon Ridley who was rector from 1886 until his sudden death in November 1915.
The first Parish Hall was built in 1855 through the generosity of Mr. Shade. When Mr. Shade died in 1862 his Will provided funds for the construction of a Rectory along with an endowment fund to provide for the rector's salary. The church was enlarged in 1856, and in 1868 the Parish Hall was made larger. The interior of the church was altered in 1885-1886 and the Norman Tower was added during the same time frame through the generosity of Matthew Wilks. Work began on rebuilding the Parish Hall with the laying of the cornerstone on July 17, 1911. Electric lighting was installed in 1916. The Parish Hall was further enlarged in 1956; the new Chapel of the Holy Trinity was built about the same time.
Canon Ridley established a Mission in Preston in 1888. Construction of St. John's Anglican Church in that community was begun in 1889 with dedication services held in 1890. St. James Anglican Church in Hespeler also began as a Mission of Galt. Work began in 1919 on St. David's Mission at the corner of Pollock and Chalmers Street in Galt. The Mission, which began as a Sunday School, was dedicated by Archbishop Williams in April 1920.1

Dedication services were held on October 28, 1893 by Bishop Baldwin of the Diocese of Huron. St. James was separated on January 1, 1890 from Preston, to which it had been attached since its organization, and continued on as a separate parish. Rev. E. Lee became Rector but only for a short time as he resigned in the Fall of 1890. Rev. W.N. Duthie then became rector of the parish, effective November 1, 1890. The congregation celebrated a Golden Jubilee in 1943. This first church, which was located at 30 Harvey Street, Cambridge (Hespeler), Ontario, was closed in 1990 when a new church was erected on Ellis Road.2

12590 Graeme Hingston, the first president of the Kitchener Ontario Stake and later counselor in the Toronto Ontario Temple presidency, died early Saturday morning, March 6, and was remembered by Elder Ballard as one of the finest Church leaders in Eastern Canada.
On Saturday afternoon, rather than attend a scheduled temple session, Elder Ballard chose to visit with Brother Hingston's widow, Elsie. James McBride, the current Kitchener stake president, said he was very impressed with how this choice expressed Elder Ballard's typical "love for the one," which had also characterized his missionary service there. Thus, the Ballards' legacy of service and love was extended through joys and sorrows on this bitter-sweet reunion weekend in Ontario.1a

Daughter of politician seeks $20 million over 1953 Will
December 03, 2009 By Brian Caldwell, Record staff

KITCHENER A family scandal more than 55 years in the making is now being aired in a $20-million lawsuit in a Kitchener courtroom. At the heart of the dispute is a will left by Norman Hipel, a prominent Cambridge politician and businessman who died in 1953. A former mayor of Preston and Liberal MPP who held high-profile posts in the provincial cabinet,

Hipel was survived by his wife, Olive, and their two children, George and Norma. The will specified that his considerable estate was to be equally divided between his children following the death of his wife, who was to live off its income until then. His assets should have been split up and distributed when Olive died in 1978. But in a case that went to trial this week, Norma, 89, claims she wasn't told about her inheritance and didn't receive any money while she struggled to raise seven children in poverty.

Now named Norma Jacques and living in Calgary, she is expected to testify today in a bid to right that alleged wrong. "My client is here to see that justice is done," her lawyer, David Smith, said in his opening address. "It's that simple." Jacques claims she didn't know about her entitlement until 2004, when one of her daughters found Hipel's will in public archives. Her lawsuit accused her brother George who died in 2004 of improperly seizing ownership of their father's sawmill and construction company, N.O. Hipel Ltd., then plundering its assets and depriving her of her inheritance.

She alleges her family disapproved of her marriage to a Catholic man of French-Canadian background. That aspect of the case was settled out of court last year when George's estate, valued at $1.2 million, agreed to pay Jacques $300,000 and gave her his $260,000 house on Queenston Road. "Norma was clearly victimized by her own brother," Smith said.

The other prong of the lawsuit is aimed at the trust company Waterloo Trust, which has since been acquired by TD Canada Trust that was hired to administer Hipel's estate. Jacques claims it didn't live up to its responsibility to properly manage the assets or ensure she got her half of them. TD Canada Trust is defending the lawsuit, which is complicated by the fact that files on the Hipel estate were lost or destroyed. Ross Earnshaw, a lawyer for the company, said in his opening address there is "circumstantial evidence" Jacques in fact got her inheritance around 1966, when her family's home and small business was destroyed by fire.

He also outlined several technical arguments involving the passage of time, including one that Jacques simply waited too long to make her claim when she knew, or ought to have known, about it. That defence is based in part on documents Jacques signed in 1955 and 1956 suggesting she had been informed of the provisions in her father's will. The trial is expected to continue into 2010.2a

Judge rules woman waited too long to claim inheritance

KITCHENER An elderly woman who claims she was cheated out of an inheritance after her father died almost 60 years ago has lost a legal bid for $20-million in compensation. The complicated case involved a will left by Norman Hipel, a prominent businessperson and politician in what is now Cambridge. In addition to owning a successful sawmill and construction company, Hipel was a mayor of the former town of Preston who went on to provincial cabinet as a Liberal MPP.

When he died in 1953, his will specified that his estate was to be divided between his two children, George and Norma, following the death of his wife, Olive. Olive died in 1978 after living off income from the estate, as the will also stipulated. Hipel's daughter Norma, meanwhile, had married a man the family disapproved of and was struggling to raise seven children in poverty. Now named Norma Jacques and living in Calgary, the 91-year-old woman claimed in a lawsuit that she was never told about her inheritance or given a penny of the money.

Her entitlement only came to light, she alleged, when one of her daughters stumbled on the will in public archives in 2004 and began investigating. Family members helped Jacques launch legal action in 2005 against the estate of her brother George who took over his father's business and died in 2004 and a trust company. George's estate settled out of court in 2008, agreeing to pay Jacques about $560,000 in cash and property.

That left a lawsuit against TD Canada Trust, which had acquired Waterloo Trust, the company originally hired to administer Hipel's estate. Jacques sought millions in damages after alleging the trust company failed to properly manage her father's assets and ensure she got half of them. Establishing what happened was frustrated by the passage of time and the death of numerous potential witnesses.

Jacques testified in Kitchener court but admitted she couldn't remember key dates and details after suffering a stroke a few years earlier. Except for a single file divider, the trust company had also lost all of its documents related to the Hipel estate and its handling. In a ruling this month after a 17-day trial in late 2009 and early 2010, Justice Michael Parayeski concluded that Jacques never received her share of the inheritance, as she claimed. But he also found that Jacques knew or should have known about her entitlement as far back as the mid-1950s, when she signed documents related to the sale of estate property. As a result, Parayeski dismissed her claim because she didn't go after the money within a six-year limitation period following the death of her mother in 1978.3a

William Hunter died in 1868 or 69 and in the latter year, Wray and Hirsch became tenants of the shop . They continued in partnership only until 1870 when Alex Wray rented the shop on Cooper Street from the Estate of Charles Wiffler who had evidently built it as well as the Waggon Shop. Wray and Hirsch had acquired the Hunter Shop, each owning an undivided one-half interest in it. In 1871, Wray had gone to Plattsville still owning a half interest in the shop in which Hirsch was carrying on. By 1872, James Anderson had acquired Hirsch's half interest and also the Allendorf lot at the corner on which had been erected the middle portion of the present James Sault house, to which later Mr. Sault added the stone front portion and the kitchen in the rear of the original house. By 1873, James Anderson had acquired the interest of Wray in the shop and so owned it and the house then on the corner. And Hirsch continued as his tenant of both until 1874 or 1875. Then James Anderson operated the shop for a year or two.2a

12611 Abraham Histand, "a native of Holland, was born about the year 1703. It cannot, at so late a date, be ascertained of what nationality he was as all documents pertaining to his ancestry are lost. He may have been of English descent as we find the name "Histand" to be quite common in the northern counties of England. So much is certain that his ancestors were not Dutch. History informs us that many of the Non-Conformists left England during the reign of Queen Mary, and also during the reigns of Charles II and James II. Among these parties may have been the forefathers of Abraham Histand. When a young man he, in company with others, sailed for America and settled in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. While in his new home he formed the acquaintance of one named Susannah Collins whom he afterwards married. They were both members of the Evangelical Reformed Body when they came to Pennsylvania, but not finding any of their faith in the newly adopted home, they joined with the Mennonite body, the doctrines of which were almost the same as those of the Evangelical Reformed body. There is no record of the date of their deaths, nor of their family. We know that they resided in Lower Salford Township, Montgomery County, in 1726, and that they had one son named Abraham (His family may have consisted of four children but no one could give any positive information in regard to his family. His wife's name has not been given to the writer) who lived at the same place where he was engaged in farming for some time, then he moved to Chester County where he died probably when a young man for we find he had but a small family. Two of his children were Eliza and David."1a

12661 Robert Hobden

The death of Robert Hobden, of Preston, which took place at the Galt hospital on Sunday, March 11, has caused sincere regret among his many friends and while not unexpected, his passing has removed one who displayed extraordinary pluck and cheerfulness in the face of an agonising and incurable malady. Deceased was born on the estate of Lord Ashburnham, in the county, of Sussex, England, on May 8, 1855, coming to Canada some 30 years ago, residing in Preston a greater portion of this time. Valuing the best traditions in the art of gardening and trained by clever English teachers, he applied his skill to many of the private properties in Preston. No more lasting tribute to his artistic capabilities can be found than in our beautiful Central park. He found it an unattractive barren field, and by his care and loving work transferred it into a vision of beauty and delight for the people and their children. The deceased was a member of St. John's church and the funeral service will be conducted by Rev. IL Herbert, at A. Grieve's funeral parlor on Tuesday, at 2.30 p.m., from thence to Preston cemetery.

12665 During a strong enemy counter-attack a Lewis gun in a forward post in a communication trench leading to the enemy lines, was buried by a shell, and the crew, with the exception of one man, was killed. Sergt. Hobson, though not a gunner, grasping the great importance of the post, rushed from his trench, dug out the gun, and got it into action against the enemy who were now advancing down the trench and across the open. A jam caused the gun to stop firing. Though wounded, he left the gunner to correct the stoppage, rushed forward at the advancing enemy and, with bayonet and clubbed rifle, single-handed, held them back until he himself was killed by a rifle shot. By this time however, the Lewis gun was again in action and reinforcements shortly afterwards arriving, the enemy were beaten off. The valour and devotion to duty displayed by this non-commissioned officer gave the gunner the time required to again get the gun into action, and saved a most serious situation.

An extract from "The London Gazette," dated October 17, 1917

__________________________

Frederick Hobson

Frederick Hobson was born in London, England on 23 September 1873. After seeing action with the British Army during the South African War (1899-1902), he came to Canada and settled in Galt (now Cambridge), Ontario. Being 41 years old when he went to the recruiting office shortly after the First World War began, Hobson gave his year of birth as 1875 so that he would be allowed to enlist in the Canadian Expeditionary Force.

On 18 August 1917 Sergeant Hobson was serving with the 20th Infantry Battalion on Hill 70, near Lens in France. During a German counterattack on the Canadian lines, a Lewis light machine gun in a forward position was buried by a shell explosion that killed all but one of the its crew. Hobson hurried to the site, dug out the Lewis gun, and got it back into action against the attacking enemy soldiers. When the gun jammed, Sergeant Hobson, though wounded, left the gunner to clear the stoppage and advanced alone to confront the Germans. Using his bayonet and rifle butt, he held them at bay until he was killed by a rifle shot. By that time the Lewis gun was again firing, and shortly after reinforcements arrived to defeat the counterattack.

For these actions Sergeant Hobson was awarded the Victoria Cross posthumously.

SERGEANT FREDERICK HOBSON VC
1873-1917

Born in England, Frederick Hobson immigrated to Canada in 1904 after serving in the South African War. He settled in Galt, Ontario with his family. In 1914, when war broke out, he enlisted with the 20th Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. He was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross for his brave action at Hill 70, near Lens, France on August 18, 1917. While under attack, Frederick rushed from his trench, reactivated a buried Lewis gun, and engaged the advancing German soldiers single-handedly.

12666 Another former resident to be mentioned here is Joseph Hobson, who became identified with the Great Western Railway and later with the Grand Trunk Railway. Mr. Hobson was born in the township of Guelph, in March, 1834. In 1855 he came to Berlin, Canada West, as it was then; was at first assistant to then in partnership with the late M. C. Scofield, Provincial Land-Surveyor, and remained here for ten years. The card of Scofield and Hobson appears in the "Berlin Chronicle" from 1856 on. In 1869-70 he was engineer on construction of the Wellington, Grey and Bruce Ry., the present G. T. R. line from Guelph northward. Eventually he became Chief Engineer of the Great Western Railway and later of the Grand Trunk Railway. His most important work was the building of the St. Clair Tunnel, for which achievement he was offered but refused knighthood. On his retirement from active service in 1907 Mr. Hobson returned to Hamilton. He has been in feeble health for some years. His early married life was here, in the house later known as the McPherson house, taken down two years ago to make room for the new Economical Insurance Company building on Queen Street, where were born several of his children, one of them, Robert Hobson, now president of the Steel Com pany of Canada. The Waterloo Historical Society has in teresting maps made by Mr. Hobson. His map of the Grange survey (lands bought in Berlin, when the Grand Trunk Rail way was built through, by Sheriff Grange of Wellington) in the local registry office, made in 1856, is still the most com plete and carefully made map of its kind in that office.1a

Joseph Hobson
 
12667 HOBSON, ROBERT, industrialist; b. 13 Aug. 1861 in Berlin (Kitchener), Upper Canada, son of Joseph Hobson and Elizabeth Laidlaw; m. 31 Oct. 1891 Mary Andrewina Wood in Hamilton, Ont., and they had a daughter; d. there 25 Feb. 1926.

Robert Hobson was born into a railway family. A native of Guelph Township, his father was a highly respected civil engineer who rose to become chief engineer of the Grand Trunk Railway and whose accomplishments included the St Clair Tunnel at Sarnia, Ont., and the rebuilding of Montreal's Victoria Bridge. After attending common schools in Berlin, Robert joined him in the construction department of the Great Western Railway. His family's social status and residence in Hamilton from 1875 brought him into the orbit of hardware merchant Andrew Trew Wood*, who stood at the centre of an ambitious group of capitalists. Hobson married his daughter, and in 1896 Wood turned to his son-in-law to help administer the Hamilton Blast Furnace Company, of which he was president. It had just begun smelting pig iron and though Hobson knew nothing about making iron and steel, he became the firm's secretary-treasurer in February 1896. He threw himself into the job, thus beginning a lifelong fascination with the industry, and soon impressed the board of directors with his managerial abilities. When the company merged with the local Ontario Rolling Mills to create the Hamilton Steel and Iron Company Limited in 1899, he became the new firm's secretary and assistant general manager, and he would take over as general manager in 1904.

The first steel was poured on 15 May 1900, but steel production was then a risky business in Canada. Unlike its giant competitors in Sault Ste Marie, Ont., and Sydney, N.S., the smaller Hamilton firm pursued a cautious policy of slow growth and diversification of products to serve many different markets. The company's plant in the city's suburban east end became a nucleus around which many large corporations established metalworking factories. Hobson would help attract a number of them, including International Harvester in 1902 and National Steel Car in 1913.

In 1910 an opportunity emerged to integrate the firm's primary production with the manufacturing of secondary products. That year the Montreal-based promoter William Maxwell Aitken* acquired options on the Montreal Rolling Mills and Dominion Wire Manufacturing and, rejecting a purchase offer from United States Steel, set out to organize a Canadian merger. He called together Charles Seward Wilcox, president of Hamilton Steel and Iron, Cyrus Albert Birge, president of a screw and tack company in Hamilton, and Lloyd Harris, head of Canada Bolt and Nut in Toronto. Out of their negotiations emerged the Steel Company of Canada Limited in June. Wilcox became president and Hobson general manager of this vastly bigger corporation; it established its headquarters in Hamilton, where Hobson provided the energy and skills needed to knit the new enterprise into a major corporate success, of which he would become president in 1916. For Hobson its emergence was marred only by the death of his daughter, Dorothy Wood, in April 1910 as a result of an automobile accident.

At the outbreak of World War I, Hobson was one of North America's most prominent steel men. With his corporation's rolling mills and finishing plants as assured consumers, he had been able to initiate a major expansion to create state-of-the-art facilities. Most important were the electrically powered mills completed in 1913 for breaking down steel ingots into blooms, bars, and rods. Increasingly Hobson and his plant supervisors were changing the complexion of the local labour force by recruiting large numbers of recent immigrants from southern and eastern Europe. By 1914 recession had hit the Steel Company, but when the war eventually brought a massively increased demand for steel, his company expanded again by adding a munitions department for turning out shells, for which it developed a special steel. In 1917 a rolling mill to produce sheet metal - vital for the growing automobile industry - was added and iron and coal properties were acquired in the United States. Known as Stelco from about 1915, the company emerged from the war as the largest, most diversified steel maker in Canada.

Hobson's management style was paternalistic and authoritarian. His affability apparently built allegiance among his white-collar staff, but he crushed all efforts by his blue-collar workers to form unions. At the end of the war, however, he recognized that Stelco had to appeal more directly for their loyalty, and a company magazine, safety program, and pension plan were instituted. As president, Hobson had a particular responsibility to scout out markets and sound out broader trends in the international capitalist economy. In this work he travelled widely in Britain, Europe, and North America to meet with powerful businessmen. He also kept abreast of new developments in the industry by attending the annual meetings of the American Iron and Steel Institute, of which he had become a director by 1913. He was as well a fellow of the Royal Colonial Institute in London and an active member of the American Institute of Mining Engineers.

Hobson had not restricted himself to the fortunes of one company. He participated in a tight web of interlocking directorships in Hamilton, joining the boards of the Landed Banking and Loan Company and Tuckett Tobacco in 1910, the Bank of Hamilton in 1915, and Dominion Power and Transmission in 1917. A tall, genial, articulate man with a large white moustache and a jaunty air, he emerged as a leader when the business community wanted to express its collective concerns. In 1909 he was elected first chairman of the newly formed Hamilton branch of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association, and he served on its executive several times over the next decade. When the Ontario commissioner investigating workers' compensation, Sir William Ralph Meredith, visited Hamilton in 1912, Hobson took charge of presenting business's case. He also became the leading voice of the Hamilton Employers' Association, formed after the city's production of munitions was disrupted by a huge strike in June 1916.

Like many other capitalists of this period, Hobson moved comfortably too within the emerging national business elites centred in Montreal and Toronto. He personally invested on a national scale, and was added to the boards of the Canadian Locomotive Company in Kingston, Toronto General Trusts, North Star Oil and Refining in Calgary, and Canada Steamship Lines in Montreal, of which his brother, Joseph Irvine, was treasurer. He was unapologetic about this widening capitalist vision. In 1915, when rumours suggested the Bank of Hamilton was about to be taken over by the Royal Bank of Canada, he publicly defended, to loud protest from Hamilton politicians, small businessmen, and labour leaders, the right of a local bank to merge into a larger corporate unit. The merger would be "in the public's interest," he proclaimed, since strong banks were a "national asset." Not surprisingly, he would have no qualms about joining the board of the Canadian Bank of Commerce when it absorbed the Bank of Hamilton in 1923. The federal government named him in September 1918 to the board formed to direct the beleaguered Canadian Northern Railway [see Sir William Mackenzie], to which the Canadian Government (later Canadian National) Railways were added in November. It is unlikely that Hobson was dismayed when Andrew Ross McMaster rose in the House of Commons in 1921 to denounce the alleged interlocking directorships held by four members of the Canadian National board: chairman David Blythe Hanna*, Hobson, Thomas Cantley*, and Edward Rogers Wood*.

Well before the war Hobson had emerged as a kind of industrial statesman who carried the concerns of the business community into the political realm. His skills brought him onto the executive council and the tariff and transportation committees of the CMA in 1901, to its Ontario vice-presidency in 1907, and to its national presidency in 1908. A long-time Liberal, he joined other Canadian industrialists in publicly denouncing Sir Wilfrid Laurier*'s reciprocity platform three years later; he served on the executive of the Canadian Home Market Association, the CMA's front organization for supporting the Conservative election campaign of 1911. Henceforth he gave his allegiance to the Conservatives. As late as 1920 he continued to maintain that the elimination of tariff protection would spell the end of Canada's steel industry.

Hobson may have reached the pinnacle of his influence locally and nationally during the war. In Hamilton he was a director of the Canadian Patriotic Fund, and, as chair of its finance committee, he used his many connections to raise money to support the dependants of local men in the armed forces. He would remain active on the fund's local relief committee until 1923. As a close friend of Conservative prime minister Sir Robert Laird Borden* and his finance minister, William Thomas White*, Hobson was not only consulted regularly, he was also recruited for the munition resources commission in 1915 and the new Honorary Advisory Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (later the National Research Council) a year later. In 1919 he was added to the executive of the Canadian Reconstruction Association, the national business organization that attempted to smooth the transition from war to peace and to promote class harmony in the face of popular unrest.

Long an active member of Hamilton's Central Presbyterian Church, the religious home of many in the local elite, Hobson served on its board of trustees. He had been a freemason since 1888, when he joined the Scottish rite as a member of the Murton Lodge of Perfection, in which he held several offices, including inspector general of the Supreme Council. No prude, he enjoyed the masculine pleasures of his class. He was a director of the Hamilton Jockey Club and, despite an early football injury that left him with a permanent limp, he enjoyed outdoor sports in the Hamilton Golf and Country, Tamahaac, and Caledon Mountain Trout clubs. Exuding bonhomie and a flair for sporty attire, he mixed business and pleasure in the exclusive lounges of his clubs in Hamilton, Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto. Hamilton was shocked when he died suddenly of a brain haemorrhage in February 1926.

Robert Hobson was a new breed of industrialist in the early 20th century. No rags-to-riches entrepreneur, he entered middle management from the middle-class profession of engineering, honed his skills in a large corporation, exercised a leadership role within the Hamilton business community, and reached a level of influence that extended far beyond that steel town. With his acumen as a corporate administrator and his leadership abilities, he was a major player in planting a vital new industry, helping transform the nature of work inside Canadian factories, and generally bringing corporations to a central role in Canadian economic, social, and political life.

Christene Allemang served as tireless community worker Christene Allemang, who offered hope and brought joy to disabled youth, young adults and cancer sufferers despite her own battle with cancer, died Sunday at K-W Hospital. She was 49. Allemang, who was choir director, organist and a member of First Mennonite Church in Kitchener, was a founder in 1982 of the Independent Living Centre which helps disabled young people live independently in the community. "She was always so positive,"centre director Roy J. Steckley said Monday, adding that her untiring efforts were crucial to the success of the centre's early years. "Chris had that persistent determination and just never gave up." Steckley said. She was instrumental in establishing the group's first apartment in Kitchener and also contributed to the centre's advocacy, peer support and barrier design programs, Steckely (sic) said. The centre now offers 13 programs for more than 300 people and has staff of 130. Allemang also worked closely with Woman Alive, a national Christian conference and convention organization for women and married couples. For the past 16 years she was the group's music director. "Chris was just a fantastic person," said Neil Maxwell, founder and director of Women Alive. Maxwell, who lives in Barrie, said in a telephone interview Monday that Allemang was an "outstanding musician" and had written a hymn book that is used nationally. In a tribute to be handed out at the church, Maxwell wrote: "Chris was a survivor who fought a long battle with cancer and who would time and time again rebound and with a smile say, 'We won again.' "She was a model of courage and determination who enjoyed laughter and was able even in her last earthly days to bring joy to other," Maxwell wrote. Allemang was a popular speaker and often her audiences numbered more than 1000. After operations for breast cancer in 1972 and a spinal tumor in 1981, which left her in a wheelchair, Allemang was often called on by doctors to serve as a resource person, visiting local hospitals and offering hope and encouragement to cancer patients depressed about their condition. Surviving are her husband, Vernon; two sons, Peter and Stephen; one sister, Georgia Knell, and one brother, Robert Hodgins. The funeral service will be conducted on Wednesday at 2:30 p.m at First Mennonite Church.2a

12687 Beaten by Bandits, Man Dies Suddenly

AYR — Injuries received by Harold Hodgson when two masked men held up his service station at Wrigley's Corners, Dec. 27, may have had something to do with his sudden death yesterday. Dr. A. S. Dunton of Paris said today. "I cannot answer definitely but there may be a connection," Dr. Dunton told The Record. Mr. Hodgson died in Willet Hospital, Paris. Dr. Dunton said an autopsy was performed by Dr. L. A. Jentz, pathologist at Brantford General Hospital. Dr. Dunton said he expects an inquest will be held. He doubted that results of the autopsy would be announced before an inquest.
HAD CHEST PAINS
Mr. Hodgson, 56, was beaten and kicked by two armed men during a robbery of his service station and confectionery store. He had complained of pains in the chest since the robbery and Monday entered Paris Hospital for an examination. He died yesterday. The two armed men with stockings pulled over their heads entered the combination store and service station and looted the cash register of $50. The bandits fired a shot at Mrs. Hodgson but it did not hit her. The two men who committed the holdup are still at large Mr. Hodgson's death has raised the question of whether they might face a murder charge when apprehended. Crown Attorney Daufman today said "I have no information on the case so I cannot say what charge would be laid." Son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hodgson, Mr. Hodgson was born in Anglo Township and received his education at Bolton school. He married Gertrude Fach of Blair 32 years ago and moved to Ayr 20 years ago where he farmed on the Ayr-Wrigley's Corners road. Seven years ago he took over the gasoline station at Wrigley's Corners.

12701 DIED SUDDENLY.
The very unexpected death of Miss Mary Hoerle, occurred at the home of Mrs. Glaister, east of Crosshill last Monday evening, in her 30th year. The young woman had been in the employ of Mrs. Glaister for the past six years and was apparently in the best of health.

12731 The original portion of the Erb-Kumpf House was built around 1812 by Abraham Erb, the founder of Waterloo, making it one of Waterloo's oldest homes. It was a three-bay structure facing a mill situated near the south-west corner of King and Erb Streets.
Abraham Erb came from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in 1806 and settled on Lots 14 and 15 of the German Company Tract, land which now comprises the central business district of Waterloo. He established a sawmill on Beaver (Laurel) Creek in 1808 and a grist mill in 1816. In 1828, he sold his mills and a considerable quantity of land to Jacob C. Snider.
Magdalene Erb sold the home to Barnabas Devitt, her adopted son, in 1835. His son Benjamin served as Mayor of Waterloo from 1881 to 1883.
An addition to the house was probably built by Devitt in 1849. A slight hump in the roof on the north side indicates the location at which it joins the original structure. The application of a vertical board and clapboard which does not align is further evidence that it was added at a later date. The second addition, probably built by Hoffman around 1855, included the two-storey verandah at the front.

Elias Snider acquired the home and later sold it to Christian Kumpf in 1869. Kumpf was a newspaper owner, Mayor of Waterloo from 1879-1880, as well as Postmaster for 42 years. He was instrumental in the establishment of the Dominion Life Assurance Company in 1889. His son Ford, who became affectionately known as "Mr. Waterloo", was born in the home in 1877 and assumed ownership in 1899. One of the community's most public-spirited citizens, he served as Treasurer of Waterloo and Clerk/Manager of the Water and Light Commission. He was President of the Waterloo Red Cross Society and The Dominion Life Assurance Company.
At present, the house demonstrates a mixture of architectural styles. Among its Georgian characteristics is the six-over-six window pane arrangement. The facade, with its two wings, treillage, Gothic barge board and Doric columns, reflects the Regency influence.
In 1979, the home was sold to a law firm which has maintained the integrity of the exterior. A third addition in keeping with the style of the building has since been constructed.1a

12761 DROPPED DEAD

Henry Hoffman, of Wellesley, Called Without a Moment's Warning.

Mr. Henry Hoffman, a well known and highly respected farmer, aged 48 years, whose home is on the section line about three miles north of this village, received a terribly swift summons to enter the unknown world, at noon on Monday last. He had been assisting his brother, Jacob, and Mr. Winkler, of Bamberg, to adjust a new pump in the well, and the three men walked to the house, a few rods away, for dinner. Deceased entered the woodshed and passed on to the kitchen, and was opening the door when he suddenly dropped forward onto the kitchen floor and instantly expired. The other two men entered by another door, having carried the tools from the pump. Jacob sprang to his brother's aid the moment he fell but the vital spark had already fled. Henry had just entered his forty-ninth year and was unmarried. He was always considered a healthy man except for a dyspeptic trouble which has been bothering him for some years. On this account he went to Parry Sound for a few months last fall, and since his return has always taken his share of work on the farm until last Friday when a severe cold confined him to the house for a day or two. He was well known in the village, and the dreadful news of his death came as a shock here. The funeral will take place at 1.30 tomorrow (Friday) afternoon. After a service at the house the remains are to be interred in Rush's cemetery, across the road from the Hoffman family homestead.1a

Bridgeport United Church

The early Evangelical Association congregations in Berlin and Waterloo date back to August 1839 when a Camp Meeting was held over a number of days at David Erb's farm (Lot 7, German Company Tract) at Lexington. Classes (or congregations) in Berlin and in Waterloo were organized at that meeting by Bishop John Seybert - on August 29th. Twenty-six charter members were divided into the two classes. Class leader for Waterloo and vicinity was Jacob Hoffman. His brother, John, was class leader for Berlin.

The Waterloo class, along with classes at Lexington and Breslau, was connected to the Berlin Mission until the organization of the Canada Conference of the Evangelical Association in 1864. The Waterloo Mission was formed at that time. In 1866 the Breslau class was merged with the Lexington class and in 1876 the Lexington class, with 31 members, was referred to as the Bridgeport class for the first time.

An old log schoolhouse was purchased in 1879 for $500.00 on condition that it be used only for Sunday School services, not for preaching. The exterior walls were covered with lumber and the building was dedicated on November 9, 1879. A new white brick church was built ten years later, in 1889, when the old schoolhouse became inadequate for the growing congregation. This church was in use until 1934 when the present building was completed. A decision had been made at a congregational meeting in July 1933 to proceed with construction of a new church. The ground-breaking service was held on August 28, 1933 and on October 1 of that year the cornerstone was laid by Rev. W.J. Zimmerman. Dedication services were held in the new red brick church on Sunday March 18, 1934. In 1942 the old brick church was sold to Mr. Minnacker for $100. An addition which was built on to the west side of the church in 1958 provided additional space for the Sunday School, as well as offices and a kitchen. The new complex was dedicated on November 30, 1958 with Professor John F. Schaefer of Naperville, Illinois preaching the dedication sermon.

Bridgeport and Waterloo were a joint parish from 1876 until 1910, when Bridgeport was joined with Strasburg. This association lasted until 1914 when Bridgeport called its own full-time pastor. The Evangelical Church joined with the United Brethren in Christ Church on November 16, 1946 to form the Evangelical United Brethren Church. On January 1, 1968 when the Evangelical United Brethren joined with the United Church, Emmanuel's name was changed once again - to Emmanuel United Church. In February 1987 the congregation voted to change the name of the church to Bridgeport United Church.

Rev. J. Kaechele (1864-1865) was pastor in 1864 when the Waterloo Mission was formed; Solomon Kraft was the Bridgeport class leader when the schoolhouse was bought in 1879 and Rev. S.R. Knechtel (1888-1891) was pastor in 1889 when the new white brick church was built.2a

Zion United Church

A Sunday School was established in Berlin in 1837, meeting in Jacob Hailer's carpenter shop which was located at the southeast corner of what is now King and Scott Streets. A mission was begun by Rev. Christian Holl shortly after his arrival in Berlin on May 9, 1839, and a class (or congregation) was organized several months later on August 29, 1839 by Bishop John Seybert of the Evangelical Association during a camp meeting held at David Erb's farm near Lexington. John Hoffman was the Berlin class leader; his brother, Jacob, was class leader for the Waterloo-Lexington congregation. The Berlin congregation met in the old Town Hall until their first church was built in 1841 on Queen Street South across from Church Street on land purchased as of August 24, 1841 from Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Schneider. The church was dedicated on September 25th of that year, with Rev. Christian Hummel of Buffalo, New York, officiating. Rev. Joseph Harlacher was pastor from 1840-1842. In 1842 the Waterloo Mission became a Circuit of the East Pennsylvania Conference. Two years later it was part of the New York Conference.

The second church building was built of brick on the same site in 1866, and dedicated in 1867; Rev. C.A. Spies was pastor at the time. The old frame church was sold and moved to Elgin Street where it was used as a dwelling. In the same year Berlin became a station.

The present church building was built in 1893 on Weber Street; dedication services were held on June 15, 16 and 17, 1894. This building was heavily damaged by fires in 1942 and 1965 but was renovated and restored each time.

The union of the Evangelical Church and the United Brethren in Christ Church on November 16, 1946 created the Evangelical United Brethren Church. The name of the church was to change again, to Zion United Church when the Evangelical United Brethren Church joined the United Church of Canada on January 1, 1968. Of interest: some maps of early Berlin show this church as a German Methodist church.3a

A brick building which was erected by Samuel Burkholder in 1849 on Church Street, near King, was offered to the congregation for their use as a church, rent free, provided that they agreed to finish and furnish the building. Dedication of the new church was in 1851. The house, known as Burkholder House, is still standing, but Church Street in Waterloo is now known as Central Street.

In the early 1890s Waterloo was in the North District of the Canada Conference of the Evangelical Association, and was ministered to jointly with Bridgeport. Pastors in those years were Revs. C.R. Knechtel (1890-1891), F. Meyer (1892), D. Kreh (1893), and W.J. Yaeger (1894).

A new church, which was built in 1871 at the corner of Cedar and Water Streets (now Bridgeport Road and Dorset Street), was replaced in 1905 by the present structure. Dedication was in May, 1906. Emmanuel Hall was built in 1938. Changes made in 1963 included an addition, a new front entrance and renovation of the former Christian Education area.

On November 16, 1946 the Evangelical Church joined with congregations of the United Brethren in Christ Church to form the Evangelical United Brethren Church. When the Evangelical United Brethren Church joined the United Church of Canada as of January 1, 1968, Emmanuel became a United Church..4a

12770 John Charles died rather tragically of what was probably a brain hemorrhage at age 49. He was traveling back to Stratford from Arkansas where he had been visiting a brother in hope that a holiday in different air would be beneficial to his health. He took ill on the train near Sarnia and was tended by the conductor until they arrived at Stratford. He was taken home where he died within a few hours. That was in December 1896. John Hoffman
 
12771 John Hoffman, "son of Peter Hoffman, was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, January 17th, 1808. In 1825 he, with others, settled in Waterloo County where he learned the trade of cabinet-maker with Samuel Bowers of Berlin. He always took quite an active part in all measures intended to develop and improve the land of his adoption. When well advanced in years he was elected mayor of Berlin by acclamation. This position of honor he held for several years in succession, When a young man he was married to Caroline Saurs who was born in 1810 and died September 26th, 1857. He died in Berlin, February 1st, 1878. His family consisted of five children" 1a

John Hoffman, who, like many other Waterloo County pioneers was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1837 had the unique distinction of erecting in Berlin the first furniture factory operated by horsepower. A few years later he built a furniture factory in which steam replaced the horses as a source of power.

A pioneer in many areas, Hoffman was a forerunner of modern town planning. In 1854 he and his son-in-law, Isaac Weaver, bought 400 acres of land between the K-W Collegiate Institute on King Street in Kitchener and the corner of Erb and King Streets in Waterloo and developed a town plan that they hoped would become a reality. He gave one acre to Mount Hope Cemetery.

Hoffman also established cattle, grain and produce markets in Waterloo.

Bridgeport United Church

The early Evangelical Association congregations in Berlin and Waterloo date back to August 1839 when a Camp Meeting was held over a number of days at David Erb's farm (Lot 7, German Company Tract) at Lexington. Classes (or congregations) in Berlin and in Waterloo were organized at that meeting by Bishop John Seybert - on August 29th. Twenty-six charter members were divided into the two classes. Class leader for Waterloo and vicinity was Jacob Hoffman. His brother, John, was class leader for Berlin.

The Waterloo class, along with classes at Lexington and Breslau, was connected to the Berlin Mission until the organization of the Canada Conference of the Evangelical Association in 1864. The Waterloo Mission was formed at that time. In 1866 the Breslau class was merged with the Lexington class and in 1876 the Lexington class, with 31 members, was referred to as the Bridgeport class for the first time.

An old log schoolhouse was purchased in 1879 for $500.00 on condition that it be used only for Sunday School services, not for preaching. The exterior walls were covered with lumber and the building was dedicated on November 9, 1879. A new white brick church was built ten years later, in 1889, when the old schoolhouse became inadequate for the growing congregation. This church was in use until 1934 when the present building was completed. A decision had been made at a congregational meeting in July 1933 to proceed with construction of a new church. The ground-breaking service was held on August 28, 1933 and on October 1 of that year the cornerstone was laid by Rev. W.J. Zimmerman. Dedication services were held in the new red brick church on Sunday March 18, 1934. In 1942 the old brick church was sold to Mr. Minnacker for $100. An addition which was built on to the west side of the church in 1958 provided additional space for the Sunday School, as well as offices and a kitchen. The new complex was dedicated on November 30, 1958 with Professor John F. Schaefer of Naperville, Illinois preaching the dedication sermon.

Bridgeport and Waterloo were a joint parish from 1876 until 1910, when Bridgeport was joined with Strasburg. This association lasted until 1914 when Bridgeport called its own full-time pastor. The Evangelical Church joined with the United Brethren in Christ Church on November 16, 1946 to form the Evangelical United Brethren Church. On January 1, 1968 when the Evangelical United Brethren joined with the United Church, Emmanuel's name was changed once again - to Emmanuel United Church. In February 1987 the congregation voted to change the name of the church to Bridgeport United Church.

Rev. J. Kaechele (1864-1865) was pastor in 1864 when the Waterloo Mission was formed; Solomon Kraft was the Bridgeport class leader when the schoolhouse was bought in 1879 and Rev. S.R. Knechtel (1888-1891) was pastor in 1889 when the new white brick church was built.2a

Zion United Church

A Sunday School was established in Berlin in 1837, meeting in Jacob Hailer's carpenter shop which was located at the southeast corner of what is now King and Scott Streets. A mission was begun by Rev. Christian Holl shortly after his arrival in Berlin on May 9, 1839, and a class (or congregation) was organized several months later on August 29, 1839 by Bishop John Seybert of the Evangelical Association during a camp meeting held at David Erb's farm near Lexington. John Hoffman was the Berlin class leader; his brother, Jacob, was class leader for the Waterloo-Lexington congregation. The Berlin congregation met in the old Town Hall until their first church was built in 1841 on Queen Street South across from Church Street on land purchased as of August 24, 1841 from Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Schneider. The church was dedicated on September 25th of that year, with Rev. Christian Hummel of Buffalo, New York, officiating. Rev. Joseph Harlacher was pastor from 1840-1842. In 1842 the Waterloo Mission became a Circuit of the East Pennsylvania Conference. Two years later it was part of the New York Conference.

The second church building was built of brick on the same site in 1866, and dedicated in 1867; Rev. C.A. Spies was pastor at the time. The old frame church was sold and moved to Elgin Street where it was used as a dwelling. In the same year Berlin became a station.

The present church building was built in 1893 on Weber Street; dedication services were held on June 15, 16 and 17, 1894. This building was heavily damaged by fires in 1942 and 1965 but was renovated and restored each time.

The union of the Evangelical Church and the United Brethren in Christ Church on November 16, 1946 created the Evangelical United Brethren Church. The name of the church was to change again, to Zion United Church when the Evangelical United Brethren Church joined the United Church of Canada on January 1, 1968.

Of interest: some maps of early Berlin show this church as a German Methodist church.3a

John Hoffman, Mayor 1872-3

Mr. John Hoffman, mayor in 1872-3, was the pioneer furniture manufacturer of Berlin. He was born in Pennsylvania. He and his brother established a small furniture factory when they grew up. It was driven by horse power. Later they installed the first steam engine used in the village of Berlin. The boiler was purchased in Buffalo, N. Y., and fetched by Mr. Isaac B. Shantz, who used a three-horse team in hauling it in. The boiler had no tubes. Mr. Hoffman was a born leader. He is remembered as having been mayor of Waterloo before he became mayor of Berlin.5a

12773 The original portion of the Erb-Kumpf House was built around 1812 by Abraham Erb, the founder of Waterloo, making it one of Waterloo's oldest homes. It was a three-bay structure facing a mill situated near the south-west corner of King and Erb Streets.
Abraham Erb came from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in 1806 and settled on Lots 14 and 15 of the German Company Tract, land which now comprises the central business district of Waterloo. He established a sawmill on Beaver (Laurel) Creek in 1808 and a grist mill in 1816. In 1828, he sold his mills and a considerable quantity of land to Jacob C. Snider.
Magdalene Erb sold the home to Barnabas Devitt, her adopted son, in 1835. His son Benjamin served as Mayor of Waterloo from 1881 to 1883.
An addition to the house was probably built by Devitt in 1849. A slight hump in the roof on the north side indicates the location at which it joins the original structure. The application of a vertical board and clapboard which does not align is further evidence that it was added at a later date. The second addition, probably built by Hoffman around 1855, included the two-storey verandah at the front.

Elias Snider acquired the home and later sold it to Christian Kumpf in 1869. Kumpf was a newspaper owner, Mayor of Waterloo from 1879-1880, as well as Postmaster for 42 years. He was instrumental in the establishment of the Dominion Life Assurance Company in 1889. His son Ford, who became affectionately known as "Mr. Waterloo", was born in the home in 1877 and assumed ownership in 1899. One of the community's most public-spirited citizens, he served as Treasurer of Waterloo and Clerk/Manager of the Water and Light Commission. He was President of the Waterloo Red Cross Society and The Dominion Life Assurance Company.
At present, the house demonstrates a mixture of architectural styles. Among its Georgian characteristics is the six-over-six window pane arrangement. The facade, with its two wings, treillage, Gothic barge board and Doric columns, reflects the Regency influence.
In 1979, the home was sold to a law firm which has maintained the integrity of the exterior. A third addition in keeping with the style of the building has since been constructed.1a

J. W. HOFFMAN, M. D. DETROIT, MICH.

Berlin Boys at home and abroad are proving themselves to be of good metal. An Old Boy, who has raised himself to prominence by his own effort is Dr. J. W. Hoffman of Detroit. Born in Berlin in 1867, he secured public school education in Berlin and Waterloo, and entered the High School in 1881. After graduating from this school, he served three years in Mr. Snyder's drugstore in Waterloo and thereafter attended the Ontario College of Pharmacy at Toronto. Successfully passing, he decided to locate in Detroit, Mich., and did so in 189o. He followed the drug business there until 1903, when he was appointed City Pharmacist in connection with the Poor Commission, a position which he filled to the satisfaction of the civic authorities and is now in his fourth term, as such. During the years which preceeded this appointment and while carrying on a drug business, Mr. Hoffman took up the study of medicine, and graduated as M. D. n 1901. Truly a creditable performance. It shows that Dr. Hoffman is a worthy son of an honored Waterloo county family.2a
