The Lord has called her to her bright and eternal reward. During her closing days on earth the family gathered about her bedside and she bade them all goodbye and told them to meet her in heaven. She longed for rest and heaven. Funeral services, Jan. 12, were conducted at the Plain,s Baptist Church by E. S. Hallman. Text Rev. 14:13. Interment in the Purcell Cemetery.

12026 A well-known man, in the person of Mr. Martin Götz, has departed from this life. He was born in 1847 in Woolwich Township and moved in 1878 to Kenilworth, Wellington County, where he had lived ever since. In the year, 1901, the provincial government called him to the position of Justice of Peace; he was also one of the main supporters of the Catholic church under construction in Kenilworth. A large crowd of people attended the burial and there were over 200 vehicles in the funeral procession. A widow and twelve children mourn the loss of husband and father.1a

12027 His most difficult and troublesome undertaking was the payment of the debt for the new church. At every step he had to listen to all the mistakes, real and imaginary, of his predecessors. At that time the years of bad harvests and poor markets had not quite passed. However, perseverance and his unruffled good nature gradually overcame all difficulties. On his rounds for subscriptions to the new church Father Foerster came to Martin Goetz, a good man, who subscribed $100.00 without coaxing. This man said that he had subscribed $4.00 to the first church built in 1847-48, but that the payment caused him no end of worry and work to get the $4.00, while the $100.00 subscribed now would not trouble him. In those early days cash was extremely scarce, because trade was almost entirely carried on by barter.1a

Obituary - Martin Goetz

After lengthy suffering from consumption, Martin Goetz died on November 8th in Woolwich at age of 68 years, 2 months and 25 days. He was born in Sufflenheim in Alsace, lost his mother when he was 3 years of age, and his father when he was 9 years old. A friend took the orphaned child in and provided him with some education. At the age of 15, he left this place, because it didn't please him and wandered around the world alone. At the age of 20, he married a girl of the same age and emigrated to America with his wife. He came to Canada and settled in Woolwich, in the forest 2 miles east of the spot where West Montrose is now located. That was in the autumn of 1847. He constructed a log hut, where he spent the winter. Since he had brought only a small amount of money with him, he soon lacked food and when spring arrived, he was forced to seek help. He found work with the Old Mennonites in and around Bloomingdale, and had employment with them the entire summer.

Monday mornings he left his cabin and Saturday evenings he went home with a load of food which he had to carry 7 or 8 miles.

He and one of his neighbours carried the first plough which they used 6 miles on their shoulders to the place, because there still wasn't any road through the forest. Gradually, things began to go better. When he had been on the land for 6 years, however, his wife died and left behind 4 children, which, of course, was a hard blow for him. He married for a second time and had 9 children from this marriage.

He took a great interest in churches and schools and whenever there was anything that needed to be done in these areas, he was always called upon for advice. He was a councillor in his church for over 20 years and only resigned from the office recently. For 25 years, he was Justice of the Peace. He is survived by his second wife and 7 children (4 sons and 3 daughters), as well as 47 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Six children have pre-deceased him. The two oldest sons, Martin & Joseph, have large farms in Arthur township; Joseph is a member of the township council; the third son has a wagon-building business in Nichol township; the youngest brother is on the old homestead. The oldest sister is in West Branch, Michigan, where her husband, Stephan Wieges, has a butcher and grocery shop.

The funeral took place on November 11th, his name day, in New Germany, and was attended by a large crowd of mourners. Very Reverend Father Foerster conducted a solemn requiem mass and touching sermon in which he stressed the exemplary life and zealous works of the deceased. May he rest in peace!2a

12036 Family lore indicates that Samuel died coming from from a circus and died of cholera and was buried at the side of the road, His horse was brought to his widow.

_____________

From an account of the cholera epidemic in which Samuel perished is below.

"The most striking and melancholy example within our knowledge of the generations and effects of the local infection occurred in this vicinity in the summer of 1834.

On the 28th of July, 1834, Galt, a village on the Grand River, U. C. was visited by Showmen with a Menagerie. It was exhibited under an awning of canvass, nearly enclosed at the sides, and drawn together in a conical form almost to the top. The day was excessively warm, and the crown suffocating. The exhibition lasted about 3 hours. It is estimated that about 1000 persons were present, and that not less than 200 of them died of Cholera within ten days. The population from which the assembly at the exhibition was composed, in the Township in the vicinity of Galt, it supposed to be about seven thousand.

The first case was in one of the Showmen, who sickened on that day, which was Monday. No other case occurred until the following Wednesday morning - on that day not less than thirty were attacked all of whom had been at the show - The greatest number of cases were on the Thursday and Friday following - but new cases occurred for several days. In speaking of an attack, we here allude to the time the patient supposed the attack commenced - the time he was "taken down" . The average length of time the disease lasted after this event was about sixteen hours.

Four days previous to the exhibition of animals at Galt, two children of Mr. J. G., on the Governor's Road, 12 miles south east of Galt, were attacked with Cholera, one of which died. On the same day (24th July,) two cases of what we shall call second grade Cholera came under our care, being the first that occurred of that form of the disease within our knowledge that season - About this time also, many were affected with first grand symptoms, - but with the exception of the children alluded to we have not been able to learn that any case of fully developed Cholera occurred in this part of the province previous to the exhibition of animals at Galt, and for several days subsequent to that event, and in which more than two hundred were attacked with Cholera, all had been at that exhibition with only two or three exceptions. From the 6th of August the disease became more general and not confined to such as were at the Menagerie; but this time it appeared at Hamilton and Dundas - situations more low and marshy than Galt, and adjacent to Burlington Bay of the Head of Lake Ontario. From these facts it is evident that a deteriorated state of the atmosphere existed previous to the 28th July, yet the fatal catastrophe following the exhibition at Galt was mainly attributable to the highly vitiated, or imperfectly oxygenated air, produced by the numerous and sweltering crowd under the canvas - the ventilation being altogether inadequate for so numerous and crowded assemblage. It also appears that at Hamilton, Dundas and several other situations the Epidemic influence was the product of the more common causes of general infection, united with a local infection, which last is caused by the action of heat upon putrescent vegetable matter...."1a

12044 "There was no bank nearer than Galt in this early pioneer period. Highwaymen wandered the roads ready to rob such business men as David Goldie who had to drive 10 miles on lonely roads to deposit his cash from the mill. He refused to carry a gun but on one occasion a fearful neighbour handed him one for protection against the notorious Lou Mudge whose robber band worked out of his Black Horse Tavern at the corner where the Roseville Road was intersected by the Black Horse Road, now Highway 97. The presence of the gun on the seat beside him made his trip so miserable that he threw it in the bushes by the roadside on his return journey. But Father had nothing to fear as Lou Mudge assured him later when they met in the United States where Lou was vacationing from the law under an assumed name. When they were alone in the smoking car Lou thanked him for sending food to his mother whenever he abandoned her."1a

12048 James Goldie, one of the leading flour manufacturers and dealers in Ontario, and president of the Ontario Millers' Association, is a son of John and Margaret (Smith) Goldie, and was born in Ayrshire, Scotland, November 6, 1824. His father is a famous botanist, known on both continents, and now living in Ayr, County of Waterloo, in this Province, being in his 88th year. He visited Canada and several of the States, more than sixty years ago, studying the flora in this western world; was at one time employed by the Czar of Russia to make botanical explorations, and to supply trees, plants and shrubs for the public gardens of St. Petersburg; wrote for thirty or forty years for botanical magazines, and had extensive correspondence with scientific men in Europe and America.

The maternal grandfather of our subject was also a botanist of Ayrshire, a student in his earlier years of Sir Joseph Banks.
James had a plain English education, with a smattering of the classics; was a nurseryman gardener and florist, in his younger years; in 1842 came to America, and was for several years in various kinds of business in New York and New Jersey. For awhile he was a florist in New York; subsequently had the management of the estate and large manufactories of R. L. Colt, deceased, of Patterson. N. J., and a little later was engaged in the lumber and flour traffic in Utica, N. Y.

In 1860, Mr. Goldie settled in Guelph, built a mill and commenced the manufacture of flour; sold that mill a few years afterwards, and rebuilt on another site, on a larger scale, and is now manufacturing about 75,000 or 80,000 barrels per annum. He also handles as much more, not of his own manufacture, finding a ready market mainly in the Maritime Provinces, and Great Britain. No better brands of flour are sent from Ontario, than are manufactured at his mills in Guelph. The Herald of this city thus speaks of this mill:

"Goldie's Mill is one of the important factors of Guelph's manufacturing and commercial prosperity, consuming immense quantities of wheat and disbursing large sums annually to our farmers for their grain; in the mill itself, in the cooper shops, and in the various departments of the business employing a large force of work men, it fills a sphere of usefulness and wields a power that accomplishes good to all classes.

"Over and over again it has been characterized as the model flouring mill of Canada, a verdict that facts abundantly sanction.

"Of machinery now in place, the best that the millwright's art could produce, has been purchased. Six run of stone are busily at work. Three double chests of bolts are performing their duties. Middlings purifiers, coolers, grain cleaning machinery, packing apparatus all the component parts of a first-class mill are to be seen.

Mr. Goldie is president of the Ontario Millers' Association, and he is well known among flour manufacturers in Great Britain and the United States, as well as throughout the Dominion of Canada.

He was in the council in the days when Guelph was a town; is one of the license commissioners for the south riding of Wellington, and a director of insurance companies in Guelph and Galt.

He is a Liberal Conservative, and in. 1876, and again in 1878, was the candidate of his party to represent the south riding of Wellington in the House of Commons, but the district is strongly Reform and he was defeated both times.

Mr. Goldie is a member and deacon of the Congregational church; a liberal contributor to church building funds of his own denomination and others, and to religious and charitable institutions generally.

In March, 1848, he married in New York, Miss Frances Owen, a native of Montgomery-shire, Wales, and of eight children, the fruit of this union, five, all sons, are living. Thomas, the eldest, has a family; the others are single. The three oldest are with their father in the milling business.1a

__________________________

GOLDIE, JOHN, naturalist. B. at Kirkoswold, Ayrshire, Scot., 21 Mch -1793 ; d. at Ayr, Ont., 23 July. In early life he became connected with the Botanic Gardens, at Glasgow, Scot., then under the charge of the late Sir William Hooker with whom he studied Botany. Among his fellow students was Mr. Douglass, after whom the " Douglass Pine" was named, and who travelled extensively in British Columbia and Oregon and was afterwards killed in the Sandwich Islands.

Mr. G. was married in 1815 to Margaret Dunlop Smith, a dau. of Mr. Jas. Smith, of Monkwood Grove, Ayrshire, a prominent Botanist and Nurseryman. During the same year the Govt having determined on sending an expedition to the Coast of Africa to explore the Congo river, Mr. G., after passing a strict examination, was selected to accompany the expedition as Botanist, but at the last moment was superseded a circumstance to which he no doubt owed his life, as the person selected to take his place as well as a great many of the officers and crew died of the coast fever, and the expedition was abandoned.

In 1817, at the instance of Sir Win. Hooker, Mr. G. visited this continent and travelled in Can. and the U. S., making extensive collections of the Botanical treasures of both countries, as the result of which he introduced into Europe many new and rare plants amongst others the Fern "Aspidium Goldianum," which was named after him. Mr. G. returned to Eng. the next year, but visited Can. again in 1819 and made further explorations, travelling on toot from Montreal to Pittsburgh, Pa., and making a thorough examination of the Botanical productions of the country through which he passed. A journal, which he kept during this journey and in which he fully describes the country through which he passed, is very interesting. Having spent 2 years in these explorations, he returned to Eng. About this time the Emperor of Russia having caused a Botanical Garden to be established at St. Petersburg)), Mr. G was employed to make a collection of plants for it. During his residence in Russia he made extensive explorations and introduced many plants and trees into cultivation hitherto unknown to science.

About the year 1830 he again proceeded to Russia and travelled extensively in Siberia, following his favorite pursuit. The curator of the gardens at St. Petersburg (Prof. Fischer), being an old college friend, he was enabled through him to introduce many rare plants into Engl. Having formed a favorable opinion of Can. as a place of residence on his visits in 1817 and 1819, he brought his family here in 1844 and settled near the village of Ayr, Ont., where he continued to reside until his death. During his lifetime he kept up correspondence with many prominent Botanists and more particularly with his friend, Sir Wm. Hooker. He left 3 sons and 2 daughters to survive him, viz. : Mr. John Goldie, of the firm of Goldie & McCulloch, of Galt ; Mr. Jas. Goldie, of Guelph ; Mr. David Goldie, of Ayr, and Margaret, wife of Rev. Prof. Caven, of Toronto, and Mary, wife of Mr. A. McIlwraith, of Galt.2a

________________

JOHN GOLDIE a man greatly beloved We speak of him, not to eulogize him but simply to point out the lessons of his life. He needs no words of eulogy uttered in his behalf, the unadorned facts of his life are his highest praise.

John Goldie s character was one of singular simplicity and of rare beauty. It was charged with a quiet, unaffected, winsome sweetness that laid hold of all who came within the circle of his influence. He was sterlingly true, and, therefore, upright, and modest, and unpretentious, and unassuming. Of him it might be said, as was sung of one of his relations before him:

"Thine was the soul that ever viewed Deceit with deep disdain, Nor ever on thy manhood cast Dishonor s faintest stain.

"The singleness of mind and heart, The proud humility, That would have scorned before the world To seem, and not to be."

He was honest in the depths of his nature, and in all its outworking. So much so, that it shone in the most transparent way in thought and word and deed. His whole life was a grandly honest life. In coming into his presence you felt this as the atmosphere he carried about him, and when he spoke the conclusion you had reached was confirmed. He was very reserved, and, consequently, unobtrusive, undemonstrative and unostentatious. He had a real and a marked humility. As one of the men long in his service and in close relations with him said to me, speaking of this: " His humility was rather under." That is, it was excessive. He had a strong dislike to show and empty pomp and mere display. There was too much of the childish in that for his strong, robust and manly nature. But with all his heart he loved reality; reality alone claimed his respect and sincere admiration. He was a worshipper of the truth. He was kind in a high degree, and his kindness was marked by a wisdom which made it doubly precious. Like all noble natures, he was unsuspicious and confiding, and taking others as being like himself, he was often sorely deceived and disappointed, but these experiences never bred in him any taint or touch of bitterness. He was utterly unselfish; he lived for others; he was generous wherever there was need; he was honorable to a fault his word once given stood. He was a man of large intelligence and of wide culture, and when he had in any matter reached a decision he was like a 19 Roman soldier in holding his position, nothing but the best reasons would alter his attitude. And behind every quality he had a firm and unbending will, a well-instructed and finely balanced mind, a sound and enlightened judgment, and a heart of genuine charity.

And whence came this character, marked by all the elements of true greatness? It would be hard to tell how much he inherited from his worthy parents, who were at once godly and intellectual, and of great strength of character. Or how much he got from the sacred region where he first saw the light and spent his busy youth a region marked with monuments to the memory of the martyrs of the covenant; where the very air is charged with stirring and holy traditions; where every spot speaks of unswerving devotion to Christ, the King and Head of his Church; where Christian principle was life, and divine truth the food by which it was sustained; or how much he cultivated into character by the force of his own will and the grace of God working in his own heart. It would be difficult to make the analysis, but, no doubt, all wrought together to produce the result. We only reach the lowest stratum which upholds all the rest, and gives form and distinctive shape and living spirit to all the rest, when we come to his religious life.

This was the corner stone of the entire structure and the indwelling spirit of the whole life. It was used as a power, and not paraded as a possession. It spoke through the life, and not by the lips. It was seen in doing and not in saying. It proclaimed itself in a consistent course of Christian conduct, which all were compelled to admire, and which, we trust, many will be constrained to imitate. For " by it he being dead yet speaketh." The whole of John Goldie's life stood in the closest possible connection with religious motives. His early training, his thorough knowledge of the Scriptures, his earnest and deep consideration of the truth, and the strong convictions at which he had arrived and which became ruling principles in him, made him the godly man he was in his home, the consistent and honorable member he was of the Church, the useful and influential citizen he was in our town, and the highly respected and trusted business man he was all over this con tinent, the name of the firm of which he was the leading member being everywhere the synonym for truth and honesty.

While Mr. Goldie carried his light everywhere, yet it was in his home that it shone with peculiar lustre. There it was felt in tender affection, in affability, in loving kindness, in genial courtesy, and in an unaffected, charming grace. One sentence from a letter I received last July from a brother minister who had the happiness of spending a few days with him, speaks volumes, so that on this point we need add nothing more. I may say that the writer is a shrewd, keen-eyed man, and this is his revealing sentence: " I shall not soon forget the kindness of Mr. Goldie and his family. Homes like Mr. Goldie's manifest the grace of the Lord Jesus better than many sermons and loud professions. To stay in that home for the brief space permitted to me was the very sweetest experience of my visit East."

Of his church relations, I may say that he was a regular attendant on ordinances, liberal in his support of every good cause; seeking zealously the extension of Christ s kingdom at home and abroad. Unlike many who are church members, and who rest content with a superficial knowledge and comprehension of things, he thought deeply on the great problems of existence and responsibility and duty. And in doing so he took broad views, gathering into his consideration many facts; looking at all questions through the undimmed atmosphere of the holy Word. He had a clear apprehension and firm grip of the principles of the Bible and he held them fast with genuine Puritan loyalty, God's word being ever final with him. His presence with us was a continual source of inspiration and of strength. He, as a Christian man, stood for something because he was entirely surrendered to God. And all he did, and all he was, manifested his godliness. For lives like his the world is in pressing need to-day. Lives that in every relation and in every engagement, reveal the presence and the power of Christian motives. Lives that possess grace and do not only profess grace. Lives that are embodiments of truth and not only speakers about truth. John Goldie was identified with this congregation all through its history, and was from the first one of its main pillars. We thank God for him to-day, as one of His good gifts to us, whose memory is very precious.

Among his men John Goldie was always a favorite. He went among them in the most kindly and brotherly way. Being a genuine man, he felt himself one of them. He had a heart for every workman. His visits to the shops were always welcome as he threw a pleasant smile here and a kindly word there. And if help were needed, he was ever ready to lend assistance. There was in him no haughty pride, no contemptuous looking down on the men, no assertion of superiority, but rather that of strong, all conquering sympathy.

On every hand, I have heard expressions of the highest regard and sincerest affection for Mr. Goldie on the part of the men. They all loved him because he loved them. And I have no hesitation in saying that John Goldie, by his sympathy with his men, by the true kindness of his heart, held the key to the solution of the great problem of our time, namely, the relation of capital and labor.

That solution lies in real heartfelt sympathy. Treating workmen as brethren. When Judge Talfourd was dying he uttered this truth for England, which is a truth for all the world: " That which is wanted to hold together the bursting bonds of the different classes of this country, is not kindness but sympathy." There can be no question that this Scripture truth, added to and reinforcing his own sense of right, led him to this course of action. " Masters give unto your servants that which is just and equal, knowing that ye also have a Master in Heaven." (Col. 4. i.) Of Mr. Goldie s beneficence we need not say anything. The daily press has been referring to his many gifts to public institutions, but they have not a complete list, nor are they likely to have that, for he did not give to be seen of men. He disliked publicity, and especially in this, but we know that his gifts were liberal and his beneficiaries many. He had learned the luxury of doing good. He had learned, too, the spiritual use of money.

Of Mr. Goldie s scientific discoveries we have all been reading, but who among us knew that before? This but reveals how great a man we have lost. " His soul was like a star and dwelt apart" He was one of the oldest, best-known and most highly respected men in the community, a source of strength to every good cause. The large place he held in public esteem was witnessed by the respect shown on the day of his interment, when the places of business were closed, when the town bell tolled in turn with Trinity Church bell, when the Town Council and many societies took places in the procession, and flags hung half-mast all over the town; all sorrowing under the grief of a common loss. What underlay this unusual and universal exhibition of regard and affection ? The fact that Mr. Goldie stood for truth and honesty and sympathy, and great worth, and true humility. Throughout his protracted and painful sickness, he was patient without a murmur, submissive to the Divine will, leaving himself in God's hands with his accustomed sweetness of temper, and gradually sank till his departure was more like translation than death. His life was rounded off with an end full of repose in the Lord, " and by it he being dead yet speaketh." His loss makes a great void in our community. But in the life he lived and the blessed memories that are ours, he has enriched us with a heritage that is worth more than gold. A good man's memory is imperishable. " And he being dead yet speaketh." 3a

Goldie Family Long Prominent In West Ontario
John Goldie, Founder of the Family In this Province, Located At Ayr in 1844

By Dr. A.E. Byerly

The recent election in South Wellington, to which the Hon. Lincoln Goldie was returned to office in the Ontario Legislature by a very substantial majority, will recall to many throughout Western Ontario the pioneer history of the Goldie family.

There is likely no name better known in the history of Waterloo and Wellington counties than that of Goldie. It is unfortunate, however, that only a few of the grandchildren of the original settler, John Goldie, are living in this part of Ontario. In Guelph there remain but two grandchildren, both distinguished citizens for many years, namely, the Hon. Lincoln Goldie, provincial secretary, and his brother, Roswell Goldie, the well-known historian.

John Goldie, who was the founder of the family in Ontario, was born Marcy 31, 1793, in the parish of Kirkswald, Ayrshire, Scotland, and came to Ayr, Ontario, in the year 1844. Mr. Goldie was a great lover of plants and flowers and received a thorough training in botany. He entered university, where he turned his attention to language. He was married on Waterloo Day, June 15, 1815, to Margaret Ballantyne Smith, daughter of James Smith, a well-known florist and botanist of that day, residing at Monkwood Grove, near Minishant, Ayrshire.

Explores In Canada

Mr. Goldie came to America in 1817 and landed at Halifax, where he did some exploring and also on the north shore of New Brunswick and collected specimens of many plants and flowers, several of them new to science. Thence he traveled to Quebec and Montreal, meeting at the later place Frederick Pursh, the celebrated botanist, who presented him with a copy of his book The American Plants. Mr. Goldie was the discoverer of a beautiful fern near Montreal, which was named by Dr. Hookuc after him, the Aspidium Goldianum. Three shipments of his collections to the old land were lost. He had been for two years collecting in Canada, New York and New Jersey, and the fruits of those two years research were gone.

However, he was able to get together a goodly collection of plants after his first failures to get them across, and those he took with him on his return to Scotland in the fall of 1819. He later made trips to Russia and was able to introduce into England a number of plants heretofore unknown in the country.

Mr. Goldie had been so well impressed with the land across the seas that his two sons William and James preceded him to the United States. Mr. Goldie and the remaining children emigrated from Scotland in 1844 to an area near Ayr, which they named Greenfield after a place near their home in Scotland. With Mr. and Mrs. Goldie were their children, John, David, Elizabeth, Jane, Margaret and Mary. William, who had been in New York, now joined the family in Ayr, but James remained in New York until 1860, when he came to Canada and settled in Guelph.

The Ayr Farm

At the farm near Ayr, Mr. Goldie imported fruit trees, shrubs and plants from England, and in a letter to his son in New York we obtain a picture of the varied activities of the Ontario pioneer. Quoting from that letter, "We sowed our wheat on the 9th of April. It looks very well except a bit that has been much hurt by the wine-worm. David is plowing the high field for our grass crop. William and I have been very busy rooting out the pine stumps and have made a considerable clearance. I would strongly advise against buying a wagon, as John can make what we want in that way and money is wanted to pay for our land. We have wood seasoning for a common wagon. John has his machinery in operation and it answers well. He has made several beds and other things and is likely to get plenty of work, but the evil is that the cash is not easily gotten,"

The first industry established by the Goldie family along with their farm work was a sawmill, but this was given up in 1849 and the sons, William, John and David worked hard in 1850 to finish building their flour mill, which had been planned along with an oatmeal mill. In November it was complete, but for several years it was a struggle to keep going. From 1854 the business began to be a paying one, and at last success came to the young men who had planned, built and struggled along against severe odds and hardships.

The mill at Ayr continued to be run for many years by John Goldie and his son David. John, Jr., along with his brother-in-law, started a sawmill in the Township of Esquesing, near Acton, which they operated for several years. However, in 1859, John, Jr., returned to Galt and with Hugh McCulloch bought the Dumfries Foundry. This establishment is now the largest in Galt and is owned by the sons of John Goldie, Jr., and Hugh McCulloch.

William Goldie, the eldest son, was never married and died in the United States in the early sixties. John, Jr., died in 1896, David died in 1894, and James in November, 1912.

Elizabeth, the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Goldie, Sr., was married to Sydney Smith, of Galt, later of Acton, and she died in 1854, having been born November 9, 1820. Jane, the second daughter, was married to Andrew McEwan in 1847. She died in 1862 and left seven children. Margaret was married to the Rev. Dr. Caven, of Knox College, Toronto, and died May 22, 1913. Mary married Andrew McIlwraith, of Galt, in 1862 and died in Galt in April, 1911, a family of five surviving her.

John Goldie, Sr., gave up active business in his later life and devoted his time to his beloved flowers and plants. He died in July 1886, in his 94th year. His wife died February 21, 1878, in her 87th year. They were indeed honored pioneers of western Ontario. The milling business so successfully started by John Goldie and his sons continued to be run by David Goldie, and as it was one of the first mills in Ontario to adopt the roller process of making flour, enjoyed a large measure of success in consequence. The mill was sold some years ago and passed entirely out of the hands of the Goldie family. The old homestead at Ayr is still in the possession of the family.

12052 John was twenty-two when his famous Scottish botanist father, John Goldie, brought his family to Greenfield, near Ayr in 1844. In 1859, he and his business partner, Hugh McCulloch, purchased the Crombie Factory located in Galt, and renamed the factory Goldie-McCulloch Limited. As the business flourished, factory operations included the manufacturing of boilers, engines, flour, sawmill and wood-working machinery, safes and vaults.

Goldie served as the vice-president of the Hospital Trust, and he and McCulloch were able to provide the land and money needed to build the first hospital in Galt1a

____________________

John Goldie was born in Ayrshire and sent to school Kilroy near his home, but when young he apprenticed to James McNab a millwright. When he was 22 he emigrated to Canada with his family settling on Greenfield a farm near Ayr. He worked for George Baird a local contractor for over a year, then moved to Montreal where he worked for a 1 and half as a pattern maker. He returned to set up a small machine shop at his father's flour mill. He operated a saw mill in Esquesing Township for a number of years while doing work for James Crombie's Dumfries Foundry in Galt. He in 1859 purchased Crombie's mill in partnership with Hugh McCulloch. They formed Goldie-McCulloch Co. Ltd. which became one of the most successful manufacturers in Canada. He maintained is own observatory and member of the Astronomical Society of Ontario. Also he was involved with the Galt Mechanics Institute and vice-president of the Galt Hospital Trust.2a

The Goldie & McCulloch Co., Limited

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

The gentlemen who own and control this extensive establishment are personally so well known throughout the Dominion that little need to be said here respecting them. We may state, however, that Mr. Hugh McCulloch, and the late Mr. John Goldie, were both leading employees of Messrs. Crombie & Co., but Mr. McCulloch was the first to reach Galt in 1850. Since they assumed control of the business in 1859 their record has been one of continued success and progress, the result of their ability, energy and intelligent application to business, in conjunction with a fortunate combination of facilities adapted to specific fields of action. Nor have they given their attention wholly to personal affairs. Both gentlemen named have always taken an active interest in everything relating to the welfare of the community. In concluding this sketch, we would state that the relations between the proprietors and employed of the Dumfries Foundry have been almost invariably of the most pleasant and satisfactory character. All the members of the company are active and enterprising business men, liberal in their dealings with their employees and as members of society highly esteemed.3a

12053 SODA SCONES

Into two cups of flour and a pinch of salt rub a piece of butter the size of a walnut, one teaspoonful soda, and one and one-half cream of tartar if the milk is sweet, and if sour use very little cream of tartar. After all is well mixed put in enough milk to make a stiff dough, stiff enough not to require any more flour but just what will keep it from sticking to the board. Bake on a moderately hot griddle. When done set on edge in a dish and roll in a damp cloth.

______________

OAT CAKE

Wet a cupful of fine oatmeal in a small tablespoonful of roast beef dripping (dripping is better than butter for it makes them crisp) and a very little soda with boiling until quite stiff. Roll out quickly til very thin then dust with meal, sweep the meal off again and put on a very hot griddle. Bake on one side only, then rub over with meal again and sweep it off and toast before the fire the side which was not on the griddle. Keep in a dry place and when going to use put in the oven for a few minutes to make them crisp, then set ion the edge to let the steam escape. They are much better done on the griddle than in the oven.

12055 William Goldie

Dr. William A. Goldie, a native of Ayr, died in Toronto on Sunday at the age of 76 years. The late Dr. Goldie was in active practice for 50 years, retiring in 1947. He spent much of his career in clinical work at Toronto General Hospital and the Hospital for Sick Children. Numbered among his patients were Sir John and Lady Eaton.

In 1919 Sr. John and Lady Eaton endowed the chair of medicine at the University of Toronto, the first full-time chair of medicine in a British Empire university. In actual fact, Sr. John turned the funds over to Dr. Goldie, saying: "Here's the money. You do what you like with it." Dr. Goldie was on the university's medical staff from 1919 until 1929, and previous to this had worked with the university pathology and bacteriology departments for some years.

His death resulted from cancer of the lung, discovered when he attended one of the community x-ray clinics in the city.

Dr. Goldie was born at Ayr in 1873, a son of David Goldie, who owned the Goldie Flour Mill at Greenfield. He attended school here and later went to Galt Collegiate and Toronto University, where he graduated in medicine.

Besides his medical career, he had a great love for nature, inherited from his grandfather, the late John Goldie. He was a keen woodsman, and one of his campaigns was a movement to have the salmon of the Maritime Provinces protected and preserved.

John Goldie, his grandfather, came to Canada in its early pioneer stages to make a collection of flora for the Glasgow Botanical Gardens, and remained to build the once-flourishing Goldie Flour Mill.

Dr. Goldie is survived by four brothers: George and Herbert, Vancouver; James, Okanogan Centre, B.C. and Pat, Toronto; and three sisters: Mrs. F. A. Cleland, Mrs. D. E. Kilgour and Mrs. J. W. Falkner, all of Toronto.

Funeral service was held in Convocation Hall on Tuesday at 4 p.m.

Bethany Missionary Church

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

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

The first pastor was Moses Weber. He was followed by Peter Geiger, John McNally and John Steckley. Pastor C.F. Krauth was minister in 1908 when the new red brick church was built. He was followed by Cyrus N. Good, Silas Cressman and Ephraim Sievenpiper.

Of interest: annual Camp Meetings were held by the congregation in Samuel Schneider's woods through the years 1887-1910.2a

'A fine, upstanding gentleman in all things'
Former Waterloo North MPP and founder of funeral home, Edward Good dies at 83.


Edward R. Good, the founder of a Waterloo funeral home and a former MPP, died Thursday. He was 83. Good was born and grew up in Kitchener. He attained the rank of second Lieutenant with the Royal Canadian Artillery during the second World War, began the Edward R. Good Funeral Home in 1946 and served as the Liberal MPP for Waterloo North from 1967 to 1977. "I thought the world of Ed Good," said former Ontario Liberal leader Robert Nixon. "He was a very effective spokesman on all provincial issues, and was very well respected by the people in all parties," said Nixon. "He was a pretty solid citizen, and I found him to be an outstanding man to work with And he was always a lot of fun - a very enjoyable man to be with." Good won three elections with relative ease, and was the Liberal critic on municipal affairs for most of his years in the opposition benches. Long-time friend, Jim Breithaupt, a former Kitchener Centre MPP, said Good made a strong, lasting impression on just about everyone he met. "Ed made himself an expert on municipal law. He started fresh and learned on the job, and he did an exceptionally fine job," said Breithaupt. "I was very impressed with his strength of conviction, and the impression he made on people. He was a fine, upstanding gentleman in all things, and a very effective MPP for Waterloo North." Good purchased and renovated the building at 171 King St. S in Waterloo and turned it into a funeral home - a business now run by his son, Paul Good and long-time business partner Jim Erb. "Whenever anybody asks about Ed, the thing that comes to mind first and foremost was his integrity," said Erb. "He was a gentleman through and through, in every aspect of his life, and in the way he greeted people, responded to people and respected people." Until about two years ago, Good retained an active interest in the business, and kept an office at the funeral home, he said. Through the years, Good was also president of the Waterloo Lions Club, president of the Central Ontario Funeral Directors Association, and a member of Branch 530 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Waterloo. Good was predeceased by his wife, Rhea, in 1997. He's survived by three sons, Paul, of Waterloo, David of Victoria, B.C. and John of Toronto, as well as five grandchildren.2a

__________________

Waterloo's first school was built in 1820. It was built of logs and stood on rising ground on the south side of Church Street near King. It served the community for 23 years and was then removed to a site east of the present Collegiate and Technical Institute, on King Street, Kitchener, where it served as a residence for fifty years, being occupied by a colored family named Carroll for a long time.....Abraham Erb knew the value of education as was proved in later years when he made provision for promoting it. It is therefore certain that he took a prominent part in organizing the building of this first school in 1820.

The first teacher who taught in the old schoolhouse was Jonathan Good, brother of Joel Good of Waterloo. He was a small, delicate man but it was said that he was one of the best teachers who taught in the old school. He kept good order in school and out of it. He used the birch rather freely, and sometimes punished scholars larger than himself. He was a good German reader but was deficient in English. He was an expert penman and clever in making quill pens for the scholars.1a

12159 The Good-Shantz House was built about 1846 by Joseph Good. The property upon which Good erected his Georgian style home was acquired from Samuel Bricker by Joseph's father John in 1810 as part of a 148-acre parcel of land.
Retaining much of the original structure including doors, floors and exterior details, the house displays many outstanding features. Among these are the moulded trim and authentic shutters, eared window pediments, blind attic window, and returned eaves on the front gable.
In the extensive renovations by Allen Shantz carried out after 1896, the entrance was altered and the semi-circular verandah, with its newel posts topped by cannon ball finials were added to enhance the building's appearance. Fundamental changes to the roof line and the addition of a stained glass parlor window also helped to convert a simple Georgian style home to its present late Victorian appearance.
With the exception of the west elevation, the entire exterior of the Good-Shantz-Bosch house is designated a Heritage Landmark. The extensive turn of the century renovation completed by Shantz was highlighted in this designation. The home is currently owned by Wilfrid Laurier University. It was purchased, renovated and donated to the University by David and Sandra Pady. The University has called it Lucinda House after Lucinda Shantz.1a

12193 Tony Matlock of Kitchener phoned to say he helped to launch Washerama in downtown Kitchener in 1958 with partners Ralph Meyer and Howard Davis. It sold washing machines and home appliances. The name, he said, was a spin on the General Motors "Motorama" held at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto.

One of the firm's early challenges, Matlock said, was that it didn't have the rights to sell Electrohome products. It found a solution in the early 1960s by buying Good Appliances (owner Newton Good) at 74 King St. S., Waterloo, which did hold an Electrohome franchise.1a

P.H. Good, Groceries, Crockery, Glassware, Wines and Liquors, King Street - There are many old established business houses in Berlin that have grown up with the growth of the town, and met with deserved success. Among merchants most prominently connected in this respect is Mr. P.H. Good, whose grocery establishment is located in the Canadian Block on King Street. This gentleman first started the business in 1865, and for the past 21 years has steadily and solidly advanced. The premises occupied, which are large and commodious, suitably and tastefully fitted up for the requirements of the business, are 20x75 feet in dimensions. Here is carried a large and well selected stock of staple and fancy groceries, choice brands of teas and coffees, table delicacies, condiments, hermetically sealed goods, etc.; also a choice and handsome assortment of crockery and glassware, and imported and domestic wines and liquors. Mr. Good gives steady employment to three careful and competent assistants, who are always ready to show goods whether purchases are made or not, although the quality and variety of the goods carried, and the rock bottom prices at which they are sold, are sure to effect a sale. Mr. Good is a native of Canada and is an honorable and enterprising business man, and one who merits well of the community.2a

He came to Alberta in 1900; was a charter member of the Mount View congregation organized in 1901. He was a faithful janitor for 16 years, asking very little for his service. He also donated the land on which the present church building stands. He was one of those unassuming members, but was always at his post. He leaves his beloved wife, 2 sons and 1 daughter (Clayton, Gorden, and Mrs. Joel Reist, with whom he resided at the time of death), and 8 grandchildren, all of Aldersyde, Alta.), 3 sisters and 2 brothers (Mrs. H.

This union was blessed with 6 sons of whom 1 died in infancy. For the last twenty years he was a member of the Mennonite Church, and lived an exemplary Christian life and we have every hope that he is now resting from his labors. Besides the loss to the family, the community loses a kind neighbor, the Sunday school its superintendent, and the Church one of her ablest *counsellors. Buried at Martin's cemetery Mar. 18. Services by the home minister, E. S. Bauman, and Bishop Jonas Snider, of Waterloo.

During the last few weeks the family of Sister Good all had an attack of measles of a rather severe type. Other families have also had them, and some have them now. Several who had them were dangerously ill. A young brother of this congregation is down with an affection of the throat which is feared may cause his death. So we see the Lord is calling yet. Pre. J. B. Smith of Hesston, Kans., is Sister Good's only brother.1a

12217 Blacksmith Until 75

Mr. Good Sr. was a blacksmith in St. Jacobs from the time he was 18 until he retired at 75. He died in 1957 at the age of 83. The business was a family affair started by Mrs. Woodall's great-grandfather Benjamin Good, who was succeeded by her grandfather, George Good. Mr. Sylvester Good then took over and his successor was his son, Mrs. Woodall's brother, Norman. Norman in turn sold the business to John B. Martin, the present proprietor.

35¢ For New Shoe

The exact year the business was started is not on record, but it is thought to have been more than 100 years ago - before Canada was formed. Mrs. Woodall can recall working around the shop as a child during school holidays, and working the hand-operated bellows. The prices charged in those days, as shown in some of the old ledgers which Mrs. Woodall has retained, were 10 cents for re-setting a shoe and 25 to 35 cents for a new shoe. "As children, we couldn't always understand why father couldn't give us everything we wanted, when we wanted it," commented Mrs. Woodall on these prices. "When we grew older, we understood better." Mr. Sylvester Good was only away from St. Jacobs once in his 83 years and that was when he went on a harvest excursion. Mrs. Woodall has preserved a number of papers concerning this historic family, some of which she has placed in the custody of the museum at Doon.1a

12248 WAS NEARLY 100 YEARS OLD Berlin's Oldest Resident Passed Away Monday in the Person of Mrs. Randall.

HAD A LARGE FAMILY

The death of one of Berlin's oldest residents took place at 1 o'clock on Monday afternoon in the person of Mrs. Sarah Goodin, relict of the late William Randall, of Elmira, at the residence of her son, Mr. Charles Randall, King street east. The deceased was born in Renton, England, on December 25th, 1806, and had she lived until next Christmas she would have been 100 years old. She had been in good health until about a month ago, when she gradually became weaker owing to old age, and her end was peaceful.

The deceased came to Canada when 18 years of age and resided in Quebec City, where two years later she married her deceased husband. Shortly after they moved to Hamilton and resided there for ten years. They then moved to Elmira, and resided there almost fifty years. The late W. Randall died about eight years ago and since that time the deceased widow has resided with her son, Charles.

The couple were blessed with 18 children, seven of whom survive, namely, John, Elmira, and Henry, Zurich (twins); Charlotte Linder, Floradale; Joseph, Floradale; Samuel, Palmerston; Caroline, Elmira; and Charles, Berlin. The deceased is also survived by 13 grandchildren, 50 great-grandchildren and 7 great-great-grandchildren, thus making five generations at the death of Mrs. Randall.

The funeral will take place Wednesday afternoon at 1 o'clock from the residence of Mr. Chas. Randall, King street, to the Elmira cemetery.1a

There died at Berlin, last Monday, Mrs. Randall, a former resident of Elmira, aged 99 years, 6 months and 15 days. Deceased was well known here having lived here from the time Elmira was but a hamlet until a few years ago when she removed to Berlin to live with her son Charles. She was in spite of her high age, able to be about until within the last year or so. She was a member of a large family and many of her descendants still live in Elmira and vicinity. Mr. J. Randall and Mrs. Cathrae of Elmira and Mr. Jos. Randall of Floradale are amongst those of her children who remain in this district. The funeral of the deceased took place at Elmira yesterday and was attended by many of the older residents of the village and neighborhood.2a

12273 St. Matthew's Lutheran Church

Begun: 1850

A congregation was organized c.1850 by Rev. F.W. Bindemann, and services were held in a schoolhouse until the first church, which was to be used for 39 years, was erected in 1853. Rev. Jacob Werth of St. Jacobs was the first pastor. He was followed by Rev. T. Huschman (1853) of Waterloo; Rev. Werth returned to Conestogo from 1857-1860. Rev. Daniel Stahlschmidt (1860-1871) from Heidelberg came next, followed by Rev. Salinger (1871-1875) from Elmira, and Rev. Schneider of Waterloo from 1876-1881. The congregation joined the Canada Synod in the 1860s. In 1866 the congregation adopted a new constitution in which the name designated for the church was St. Matthew's Evangelical Lutheran Church Congregation.

Plans were begun in 1889 to build a new and larger church. Accordingly, in 1892, the old church was replaced with a new one which was built on the same site. The cornerstone was laid in early summer and dedication services were held on November 6, 1892. The pastor at the time was Rev. Goos. The interior of the church was enlarged in the years 1922-1925 to provide a chancel and sacristy; the interior of the church was also redecorated and new pews were installed. The church celebrated its 90th Anniversary on August 30, 1942, and its Centennial in 1953.

Conestogo was joined in a parish with St. James Lutheran Church, St. Jacobs, in 1905, an association which is still in effect.1a

12278 On May 10th Noah Gardner's daughter, Rita the eldest left Baden with George H. Redfern of Kitchener, married salesman, to Montreal presumably on a business trip. Not against the wishes of her parents and expecting to return on Sunday evening in order to be at the place of employment in a Kitchener office. But she never returned alive.

Mr. Redfern poisoned her in a room in the Hotel Viger, making a clear getaway from Montreal. She had feared to go with him somehow, but he was so insistent. Rita was engaged to Mr. Harry Capling to be married this summer. Mr. Redfern pretended to be very wealthy and so kept the friendship of the family. The motive for the crime seems to hinge on a grudge against young Capling and so avenged himself by killing this highly respectable young 23 year-old girl of Baden.

May 22nd at London Ontario Mr. George Redfern was arrested this morning and jailed. But after being in for two hours he died - apparently administered Strychnine to his own body causing death.

12291 History of Canadian Anaesthesia Roderick Angus Gordon (b. 1911)

After World War II, for a whole generation of anaesthetists the name of "Rod" epitomized Canadian anaesthesia. This sketch will remind them of the great contributions to our specialty made by Dr. Roderick Angus Gordon, and it will introduce him to those who never had the good fortune to work with him.


Professor Emeritus R.A. Gordon, CD, LTCM, BSc, MD, FACA, FRCPC, FFARCS, FWACS, was born on August 2, 1911, near Watrous, in Saskatchewan. After learning the violin and completing high school locally at age 16, he enrolled in the Toronto Conservatory of Music, becoming a Licentiate in 1931. During the Depression a career as a concert viofinist seemed impossible, and he chose medicine instead. Playing the violin supported him in medical school, and he duly graduated from the University of Toronto (AOA) in 1937. ....

....Rod married Ruth Anne Breithaupt, a nurse, joined the anaesthetic staff at Christie Street Veterans' Hospital, and hoped to "live happily ever after." However, war soon loomed, and a phone call at 0200 on September 1, 1939 "invited" him to report, at 0900 the same day, to the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps to become an army anaesthetist. Overseas, he served first with the Fifteenth Canadian General Hospital and, from 1941 to I945, with the Basingstoke Neurological and Plastic Surgery Hospital. After the war, Rod remained in the RCAMC (Reserve), becoming a full colonel in 1949....1a

He is a practical cutter, and has achieved well deserved popularity as one of the leaders of gentlemen's fashions in town. The premises occupied are 23x80 feet in dimensions, and are well stocked with a large and valuable assortment of English, Scotch and French woollens for suitings; broadcloth, etc., which he cuts and makes to order in the most fashionable styles at moderate prices. Mr. Grebenstein controls a large trade among the merchants and citizens, by whom he is endorsed and recommended for his taste and skill in making perfect fitting, stylish clothing, etc. Mr. Grebenstein started in business in 1869, the firm being Gotleib & Grebenstein, which was continued for six years and dissolved, when he is commenced business for himself, in which he has proved eminently successful, but it has been by, as he himself expresses it, "hard, steady work and by sticking to it; business success depends a great deal upon the man himself." In this Mr. Grebenstein has uttered a truism that is not alone applicable to his own case, but to business in general. It is those who "stick to it" and "work hard and steady" that succeed in life's great race. Mr. Grebenstein gives employment to ten skilled and competent hands. He is a native of Germany, and has served in the Council here for two years, and is well and favorably known to the whole community, and popular with all who patronize him.1a

12307 ADAM GOTTSLEBEN

One of the most prosperous farmers of Greenwood township is Adam Gottsleben, who was born in Hesse, Prussian, August 6, 1836, a son of Johan Klaus and Barbara Gottsleben, who has a family of four children, viz:Adam, whose name opens this record; Catherine, widow of John Ripple, lives in Pennsylvania, and is the mother of six children; Jacob lives in Canada and is married to Elizabeth Kimball, who has borne him four children; Alice is the wife of Elias Mack, of northwest Canada, and has three children.Johan Klaus Gottsleben, father of the above family, was a mason and weaver, passed all his life in Germany and died a member of the German Reformed church.His widow came to the United State in her latter days and located in Pennsylvania, but afterwards removed to Canada, where she died in 1872, also in the faith of the German Reformed church.

Adam Gottsleben, when about eighteen years of age, migrated from Germany to Canada and for five years worked on a farm; he next went to Union county, Pennsylvania, and worked out at farm labor until May, 1861, when he enlisted in Company B, Sixth Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteers, was detailed to hospital duty, and continued with the army in field hospitals until 1864.He was mustered out at Harrisburg, having been honorably discharged, and for which service he receives suitable recognition through a pension.

Mr. Gottsleben, after leaving the army, returned to Union county, where he worked on a farm for two years, then purchased a farm in Snyder county, on which he resided until the 'seventies, when he went to Canada, where he lived five years.March 4, 1881, he came to Michigan and bought forty acres of cleared land in section 11, Greenwood township, built a good dwelling and substantial barn, and later added forty acres to his original purchase.

Mr. Gottsleben was joined in marriage December 18, 1866, with Miss Anna Schill, a native of the same province as himself.They have nine children, who were born in the following order:Elizabeth, who is the wife of Jacob Zuelch, lives on a farm in Greenwood township; John Henry, who died December 26, 1902, in his thirty-third year, had lived at home; Anna, wife of Noah Bean, of Greenwood; George, who married Ada Preston; Matilda, William, Charles, Rosa and Earnest, all under the parental roof.Mr. and Mrs. Gottsleben and elder children are members of the Evangelical Association, in which they take an active interest and to the support of which they liberally contribute.In politics Mr. Gottsleben is a Republican, under the auspices of which party he has held the position of school director thirteen years.

As a farmer, Mr. Gottsleben raises mixed crops, such as hay, wheat, corn and oats, a considerable quantity of which he disposes of by sale, and the remainder of which he feeds to his stock, which comprises high-grade cattle, horses and hogs, in the breeding of which he has been very successful.He has been a hard-working man all his life, notwithstanding the fact that he is now rewarded for his labors with a comfortable home and a profitable farm, on which he can implicitly rely for support the remainder of his days.He may truly be termed a "self-made" man, and his habits of industry still cling to him, having become to him a sort of "second nature."He has won for himself the warm regard of all his fellow citizens for the reason that he was never known to violate his word, and honest, coupled with industry and economy, will ever secure the respect of all.

Henry Goudie
 
12317 Rev. Henry Goudie, "was born January, 16th, 1851. When a young man he was converted and joined himself with the Mennonite Brethren in Christ. Some years ago he entered the ministry and has up to the present proved himself an able minister in winning souls for Christ. His sermons are clear, instructive and full of Spirit. None of those dry and merely a repetition of old worn-out-phrase sermons but are full of life and very impressive. He is well received by all parties. During his three years labor in Berlin he has done much good among all classes. After the expiration of the third year (March, 1895) in Berlin, the conference had him stationed at Elmwood, Ontario, where he now resides. He is married to Sarah Wildfong and has a family of seven children".1a

Goudie, Henry (1851-1942)

Henry Goudie (16 January 1851-19 January 1942) was the organizer and first district superintendent of the Canadian Northwest Conference of the United Missionary Church (now Evangelical Missionary Church). He was born near Hespeler, ON a son of David and Nancy Goudie. In 1872 Henry married Sarah Wildfong. Together they had two sons and five daughters. Following Mrs. Goudie's death he married Mrs. Susannah Lageer in 1923.
In 1870 he was converted and in 1874 he became a charter member of the Reformed Mennonites. This group would later unite with other groups to form the Mennonite Brethren in Christ Church (now the Evangelical Missionary Church). Goudie began to preach in 1877 and was stationed at Port Elgin in 1878, being ordained by the Ontario conference in 1881. He served as pastor at Port Elgin, Breslau, New Dundee, Stayner, Markham, Kitchener (Bethany), Hanover, Shrigley, Toronto (Bethel), Aylmer, and Hespeler in Ontario. He also pastored at Mayton and Markham in Alberta. For 14 years he served as district superintendent: five years in Ontario (1900-5) and nine years in Alberta (1907-13, 1916-19). He retired in 1926 after a service of 50 years. He died 19 January 1942, just three days after his 91st birthday and was buried in the Wanner cemetery at Hespeler (Cambridge).2a

Breslau Missionary Church

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

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

On May 6, 1959 a decision was made to construct an 1800 square foot addition to the church. The sanctuary was enlarged and new pews were installed in 1978; dedication was in September of that year. Rev. Leonard DeWitt, president of the Missionary Church was guest speaker on Sunday, November 21, 1982, when the church's 100th Anniversary service was held. Of interest: the sign eteched in the glass above the doors on the northwest side of the back section reads "United Missionary Church."3a

12319 Hugh Goudie, "All the Goudies of this county are descendants of Hugh Goudie who was born near Edinburgh, Scotland, January 12th, 1792. He was married to Jane Ayer about the year 1815. On May 28th, 1816 was born their eldest son, David, who came to Canada with his parents in 1828. They settled where now is situated the city of Guelph. Soon after Mr. and Mrs. Goudie's arrival in Canada, young David had to make use of the "axe" and "plow" instead of the "books" and "slates" as boys now-a-days do. He was engaged with Jacob Schneider of Bloomingdale for three and a half years. From here he went to Henry Sniders, thence to old Peter Erb. From here he went to Mr. Vance's, near Hespeler, thence to Groh's. After leaving Waterloo County he went to Cayuga where he resided for a short time, then again returned to Waterloo County where he has since resided. At present they reside about two miles south of Breslau, on the west side of the Preston Road. Mr. Goudie is quite an active and intelligent man yet, considering his age and great amount of labor he has performed since his boyhood days. He possesses all those sterling qualities which have made the name of "Scotchman" synonymous with business integrity, sterling honesty, successful in all undertakings, lovers of law and order, and, best of all, worshippers of the true and living God. On June 17th, 1841, he was married to Sarah Fathers who was born October 16th, 1822, and died at Cayuga, Ontario, August 28th, 1842, leaving one daughter named Emily who was born May 18th, 1842. She is married to Samuel Wanner, a farmer. They reside in Colbourne Township, Huron County, and have a family of two sons named David and George. After the decease of Mrs. Goudie he was again married, December 18th, 1843, to Nancy, daughter of Tobias and Catharine (Stricker) Wanner. She was born February 27th, 1825. To Mr. Goudie and his second wife was born a family of ten children"1a

12326 George Gouinlock was an educator and brother of John Gouinlock one of Galt`s first and most famous teacher. He along with his brother operated one of the best schools in Edinburgh, Scotland, teaching children from some of the finest families. To counteract his ill health on the advise of his doctors he moved to Canada. In the late 1820`s he and his brother moved to Galt when John became a teacher and farmer. George wrote several text books some of which, particularly the arithmetic book was used in Ontario Schools for many years.1a

The old rough-cast school-house at the head of Main Street was erected in 1832. Its first teacher was Mr. James Milroy, who removed to Iowa in 1856, and the second, Mr. William McColl, who taught until Rebellion times. With this school, however, must ever be associated the name of Mr. John Gowinlock, who was its sole teacher for many years. He was an excellent specimen of the old-fashioned dominie, before the days of County Boards and periodical examination!. His teaching was eminently practical. He knew what the birch was for, and he applied it. He frittered away no time on physiology, botany, or philosophical abstractions. He professed to teach the three R's, and he did it, and did it well.

It is not a little singular, notwithstanding the immense superiority claimed for our schools of today, that many of Mr. Gowinlock's scholars compare in point of education very favourably with those turned out under our much-vaunted modern system? May the secret of this not lie in the fact, that whilst the attention of scholars in those days was strictly centered upon the essential requisites of education, their studies are now so numerous and diffuse, as to prevent that mastery of each subject, without which instruction is of little practical use, and readily passes from the memory?2a

In 1832 a roughcast schoolhouse was built at the intersection of Wellington and Main streets. He left a lasting impression on his students and applied a strict discipline in the school freely using the strap.

12334 Death of Mr. James Gourlay - On Tuesday morning last this well-known resident of Galt died from a severe attack of inflammation of the lungs, after an illness of about four days. Deceased was long and most favorably known in Galt. Coming to Canada from Glasgow in 1842, he occupied a farm for a little over a year near Carlton Place. In 1844 he first came to reside here, at once entering the newly-established Foundry, (then back of the Dumfries Mills), of James Crombie & Co. In his capacity of Machinist, he continued in Mr. Crombie's employ until about the year 1854, when he left Galt and went to Varna, where he established a Plough Factory. The country was too new for success, however, and the "Vance" Flouring Mill in Clinton requiring a competent practical machinist to attend to it, Mr. Crombie at once recommended Mr. Gourlay, who assumed the position, retaining it for about four years. He then left Clinton and assumed his old position in Mr. Crombie's Foundry at Galt, then about passing into the hands of Messrs. Goldie & McCulloch where he continued as foreman for many years, during which time all the heavy machinery for the Hamilton Rolling Mills was turned out. In their employ he remained until his son, Mr. John Gourlay, in 1872, entered into partnership with the late Adam Cant, and established the Galt Machine Works, when he left the establishment of Messrs. Goldie & McCulloch and entered the workshop of the new firm, with whom he has continued until his death. Mr. Gourlay was a skillful mechanic, and remarkable for the steadiness with which he was to be found at his work. As a private citizen he was very unassuming. Trades are said to run in families, and in this case it would certainly seem to be so. Mr. John Gourlay, the eldest son, the second son, James, dying about ten years ago, is one of the firm of Cant, Gourlay & Co.; Mr. Alex. Gourlay is foreman machinist, and Mr. Wm. Gourlay, a moulder in the same works. Of Mr. Gourlay's four daughters one is married to Mr. Wm. Ewart, of Oshawa; one to Mr. John Kirk, and the two youngest are yet at home.

12345 HENRY GOWENS.

I have had a wide experience of the evils of slavery, in my own person, and have an extensive knowledge of the horrors of slavery, in all their length and breadth, having witnessed them in Old Virginia, North Carolina, New Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi. I belonged in the State of Virginia, and am, I suppose, about forty years old. Were I to write out all my experiences and what I have observed, (and I intend to do this, having commenced already) it would make quite a large volume. In Humphreys Co. on the Tennessee River, were one hundred and ten slaves; I witnessed their treatment with a heartache. In Alabama, I know how two plantations, of one hundred and fifty, and one hundred and thirty each, were managed, who were whipped and slashed under the kindest overseers they had,--and when they had a hard overseer, there was no peace at all. It was whip, whip, continually, old and young; nobody got too old to be clear of the lash. It seemed as if the whipping had to be done, whether the work was done or not. My own master was kind at first, but as he grew older, he grew more and more severe, getting overseers who were harder and harder.

About the first of Gen. Jackson's Presidency, my master employed an overseer, named Kimball, over one hundred and thirty slaves, in Lauderdale Co., Alabama. This Kimball was one of the most cruel men I ever saw. When he commenced, all the field hands were called together on Sunday morning, up to the great house, and then Mr. Kimball, a well dressed gentleman in appearance, and a fine looking man, walked out in company with my master. The master said, "These are my hands, that I now give up to you; take charge of them and manage them to the best of your judgment." He gave the names of the foremen of the gangs, and pointed them out to Mr. K.: then the names of the men who had charge of the women in ploughing; then the name of the man who had charge of the women in grubbing: and so he went through all the different portions of work that were done on the plantation.

When Mr. Kimball spoke to Donnison, one of the principal men, a field hand, and to each one severally, so that all could understand what his charges were. He told them what his rules were, and what should be law: "I give you a horn, Donnison, to blow two hours before day: and recollect, every one of you, every man, every woman, and every boy and girl who is able to work, is to be up within the hour after the horn blows: at the end of that hour, every one is to be found starting out of their doors, making ready for the field. If you have any morning bits," (these they are to provide for themselves in the best way they can, otherwise, they have nothing to eat until 12 o'clock; the calculation being, for the slaves, two meals a day,) "you can take them with you: but no time will be allowed to eat them until twelve. This is my law, and I give it not thinking that you will forget it. If you forget it, I will not, but will remember it by throwing the lash well on your hide." A most horrible man! "You recollect I do n't whip any of you with a chemise on, nor with a jacket on your backs. I get at the naked skin. If I find any of you lagging back after the last horn blows, I shall whip you up to the spot where the work is to be done." My master gave Donnison a first-rate English watch to keep his time and blow the horn by. After Kimball had given his charge, my master spoke to all the people again: he said, "I want every one of you to remember that you are not to come to me with any complaints against the overseer, for I have nothing to do with you. If you have any complaints even among yourselves, you must go to the overseer; nor are you to go to your mistress at any time with any complaints against the overseer. If I know one of you to do it, either man or woman, I will give a note to the overseer, and he shall not hit on you less than a hundred lashes on your bare back."

On Monday morning, all were up to the mark. Tuesday morning, I was awakened by the noise of the lash, with cries and groans. From this time the lash was going every morning, and in the course of the day. I was a house-servant, and so was exempt from Kimball's orders, but my heart ached to see the suffering and punishment that our people had to undergo. Things went on so the whole year. The people were afraid to go to the master or mistress under the sufferings they endured from the torment and sting of the lash. In the course of about six months from the time Kimball took charge, some two or three ran away, he was so severe. That was a new thing to my master. He sent word by slaves that if they saw the runaways, to tell them if they would come home and go to work, they should not be whipped. Then they would come in. This running off happened occasionally all through the remaining part of the year.

In the picking cotton season, Mr. K. would punish the women in the severest manner, because they did not pick cotton fast enough. He would thrust their heads into a cotton basket. What I say now would scarcely be believed only among those who are in that neighborhood,
because it looks too cruel for any one to do or to believe, if they had no experience of such things or had not seen the like,--they would not dare lift up their heads, as perhaps he would punish them twice as much. Then he would throw their clothes up over their heads and the basket, and flog them as hard as he could with a rugged lash, cutting their flesh terribly, till the blood ran to their heels. Sometimes they would from the torment lift their heads, when he would perhaps give them a third more than he otherwise would; and this without reference to any particular condition they might be in at the time. The men he would generally place across a log, tie their hands together, and their feet together, and put a rail through under the log with the ends between their feet and hands; and in this condition, which is itself painful, he would apply the lash. Sometimes, to cramp down the mind of the husband, he would compel him to assist in the punishment of his wife. Who will tell of the good of slavery? I would rather be a brute in the field, than to endure what my people have to endure, what they have endured in many parts of the slave-holding States.

There was one religious old woman, Aunt Dinah,--very pious: all believed she was, even my master. She used to take care of the infants at the quarters while the mothers were out at work. At noon, the mothers would come home to nurse their children, unless they were too far off--then the infants were carried to them. Aunt Dinah, knowing how cruelly the women were treated, at last, when the master was absent, picked up courage to go to the mistress and complain of the dealings of the overseer. My mistress belonged to the Presbyterian Church; Aunt Dinah to the Baptist. The mistress then began to my master about the cruelty on the place, without disclosing how she got her information. I do not think the master would have interfered, were it not that the mistress also told him of the overseer's intimacy with some of the female slaves. She being a well-bred lady, the master had to take some notice of the management. He told the overseer to change his mode of punishing the women; to slip their clothes down from their shoulders, and punish them on their backs. No interference was ever made except in this one instance.

The overseer had one child by a slave woman. I left the child there a slave. At the expiration of a year Kimball left. Three months after, or thereabouts, he was hanged in Raleigh, N. C., for the murder of his step-father. The slaves were rejoiced at his being hung, and thought he ought to have been hung before he came there to be overseer.

I effected my escape about sixteen years ago. I was questioned twice about papers, but got through it without much difficulty. I escaped from Alabama. I shall give the particulars more in detail when I publish the whole history of my life to the people of the United States and Canada.

The colored people can do as well in Canada as they could in the United States under any circumstances. Even in the free States they are accounted as nothing, or next to nothing. But in Canada, all are really free and equal. Color is not recognized in the laws of the land. During all the time I have lived in Canada, no white person has suffered any inconvenience, or had cause to complain, because I was placed on an equality with him. They come here destitute of any advantages--but they are getting along in a respectable, upright way, and there is plenty of work for them. If the colored people had come into Canada with a knowledge of reading, writing, and arithmetic, there would now be no difference between them and white people, in respect to property or business. They would have been just as skilful, just as far advanced in art and science as the whites. But they have to contend with the ignorance which slavery has brought upon them. Still they are doing well,--no one could expect them to do any better.

Every thinking, every candid man that knows me, knows that I would not utter any thing that is not true.

How much longer, in the name of God, shall my people remain in their state of degradation under the American republic?1a

12346 GOWER, Lloyd Frederick

Lloyd Frederick Gower, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on Thursday, August 22, 2013, at Cambridge Memorial Hospital, in his 83rd year, after a year-long struggle with brain cancer. He is survived by his loving wife Linda, his children Michele (Mike Hart) of Thornhill, Michael (Tammy Blackwell) of Cambridge and Melanie (Les Perriman) of Ayr and by his granddaughters, Meaghan and Jessica Perriman. Also remembered and sadly missed by his sisters; Marilyn Carr (David) of St. Lambert, Quebec and Diane Dent (Peter) of Hamilton and by his brother-in-law, Stephen DeMorest (Carole) of Port Perry, as well as thirteen nieces and nephews, scattered around the world. Retired from Midland Doherty/Midland Walwyn (1990) and from Rae & Lipskie Investment Counsel (2008), Lloyd was an active volunteer within the community, supporting organizations, such as Trinity Anglican Church, Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation, Grand River Conservation Authority, Crime Stoppers of Waterloo Region, the PC Parties of Ontario and Canada, One Voice One Vision, Wilfrid Laurier University, Renison College (University of Waterloo) and Probus. Life on the farm kept Lloyd grounded. He and Linda raised sheep for 12 years and their lamb was known throughout the region. There was nothing Lloyd enjoyed more, than walking out back in the woods and if he had another person or a dog for company, so much the better. He was an avid hunter and happily rewarded the neighbouring farmers with venison, for allowing him to hunt on their properties. He loved sailing and went on many adventures along the rivers of Europe and through the Mediterranean, with his sailing buddies and captains Lonny Holland and John Morton. Occasionally Linda was invited to go along, as long as she didn't cramp the boys' style! In 1997, Lloyd participated in the flotilla sailing along the St. Lawrence River to Newfoundland, in celebration of the 500th anniversary of Cabot's landfall in that province. He was thrilled to be a part of this event. Lloyd was also a big supporter of the Ayr-Paris Band outdoor concerts and loved attending the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Pops concert series. The family would like to thank Dr. Jay Baker and the 3rd floor nursing staff at Cambridge Memorial Hospital, who helped to make Lloyd's last days more comfortable. Cremation has taken place. Friends may call at Coutts Funeral Home, 96 St. Andrew St., Cambridge, on Saturday, August 24, from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, August 25, from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. A service of remembrance will be held on Monday, August 26, at Trinity Anglican Church, 12 Blair Road, Cambridge, at 1:30 p.m. A casual (flat shoes) celebration of Lloyd's life, will follow at the farm.

12373 Hans (John) (Alecander Harris, of Lancaster, Pennsylvania) Graff, "a native of Switzerland, born in 1661, was one of the first pioneers of Lancaster County, who settled in it as early as the year 1717 when the district in which he chose his future home was but a howling wilderness inhabited by Indians. He belonged to the pious but persecuted sect of religionists in Europe, the Mennonites, against whom the sword of intolerance was unsheathed; and it was to escape the destruction that seemed to threaten the devoted followers of Simon Menno, that the subject of our notice was induced, together with his co-religionists, to select some place in the New World as a place of refuge. About the year 1695 Hans Graff fled from his native home in Switzerland and went to Alsace, now a German province, where he remained until he emigrated to America and settled at Germantown, Pennsylvania. Here he remained but a short time. Induced by the glowing descriptions of the fertility and excellence of the soil of the Pequea Valley, he moved thither and chose it as his abode, unless one more adapted to his taste should come to his knowledge. In his wanderings through the new territory he met with a finely timbered district which place he selected as his final abode in the new country. Returning to his home at Pequea he disposed of his effects and immediately took up his journey for the place which he had chosen as his new home and abode. Here he erected a cabin under a large white oak tree, in which he, his wife and family spent the first winter. In the following spring he took out a warrant for a large tract of land on which he soon erected a more commodious dwelling together with the necessary outbuildings. Fortune favored him, and it was not long till his prosperity was noticed by others of his countrymen who came and settled in the same locality, and in this manner the beginning of a flourishing settlement was formed. Old Hans Graff led a mercantile life for many years. His many customers were the Indians, to whom he sold milk, vegetables, blankets and other articles of merchandise which he purchased in Philadelphia and obtained in exchange for furs and other objects of trade for which he always secured a ready cash sale. In this way Hans Graff gained a considerable fortune, and by the time Lancaster County was organized into a separate county he was already the most independent and influential of its citizens. The township in which he had selected his abode was named Earl (Graff) in honor of him, as one of its most respected inhabitants. Of his numerous family only six sons attained the age of manhood, the rest died in infancy. The names of those six were"1a

That will make your sorrows free.

Carl Anderson has been patient
Looking forward to the year,
Now if some girls would ask him
It would fill his heart with cheer.

Fred Walker is another
Still in the Bachelor's row,
He'd accept you any minute
Anyone would tell you so.

Harry Miller, a real good farmer
Has no time for girls at all,
So it's plain your hours are wasted
When on him you call.

Then comes Bruce Graham
As patient as can be,
If the girls think he won't marry,
Just ask him once and see.

Jack Tye, a fine young man is he,
He smiles and that with vim,
But Girls don't waste your precious time
A Milverton girl's got him.

John Graham is still at large,
And many a girl would sigh
And the prospect would be bright,
So it's really worth a try.

For him a girl should try
Just put your cake upon the shelf
You'll get him by and by.

Without a wife looks bare,
But before some girl gets him,
You'll have to use a snare.

Two handsome lads they be,
Now girls don't miss asking them
Or these two will go free.

Norman Kocher is still with us
And he is going to stay,
So if some girl proposes,

Both young you must agree,
If you think they would not want you,
Just ask them once and see.

So all you girls in Haysville,
Who chance to this rhyme

Await you to name the time.

Now show them you can do it,
The way is surely clear,
Pick out "your man" and bear in mind
It's a long time till next leap year

12412 THOMAS GRANTHAM, retired, Brantford, was born in Yorkshire, England, February 9th, 1809, and is a son of Thomas Grantham, also a native of Yorkshire, and a farmer by occupation, who lived in England up to the day of his death. His wife also died in England. Their family numbered twelve children, of whom ten probably are still living. Thomas, our subject, was reared in Yorkshire, and in 1827 came out to Canada, and resided for five yesrs in Little York, now Toronto. There he learned the blacksmithing trade, and in 1832 moved to Mount Pleasant, Brant County, where he worked for a farmer in order to gain an insight into farming pursuits. He then purchased a farm of fifty acres, which he some time afterward rented out, and about the same period, Nov. 9th, 1840, was married to Ruth Gurnett, a native of Sussex, England, and daughter of George Gurnett and Ann Dunaway. After his marriage he rented a brick-yard from Rev. Mr. LugLar, and carried on brick-making business lor three or four years. Selling the brick-yard out to Calvin Halton, he removed to Mount Pleasant, and went on his old farm of fifty acres after buying fifty acres more on the opposite side of the road. There he resided and carried on farming operations for about thirty years. By this time his farm had increased to 175 acres, which he sold, and moved into Brantford in May, 1871. When Mr. Grantham first undertook farming life, ho took thirty bushels of wheat to Dundas, Wentworth County, and sold it at fifty cents per bushel, the trip taking two days. He sold fine potatoes at ten cents per bushel in trade ; in fact, in those days everything was traded, except tea, which was a cash article. Mr. Grantham was largely instrumental in building the tree bridge over the Grand River, which cost him, over and above time and trouble in canvassing for the " sinews of war," $100. He was rated a life member of the Agricultural Society as an acknowledgment of his services in securing their present grounds. He generally attended the First Baptist Church, of which his wife is a member, aud in politics is a Liberal. Mr. Grantham is a thorough sportsman, and his collection of birds and animals, numbering some one hundred and fifty specimens\emdash i aU " to his atcn gun " and all stuffed by himself\emdash is an evidence of his being a son of Nimrod, a disciple of Izaak Walton, and a skilled taxidermist. Mr. and Mrs. Grantham have had a family of eight children, of whom six survive. Charles is a carriage-maker and blacksmith in Cainsville ; Alfred is a builder in Mount Pleasant; Alice, wife of Dugan McEwen, resides on the old homestead at Mount Pleasant; John is a music dealer in Galt, Waterloo County.1a

12421 Rev. P. Graupner, pastor of St. Paul's Lutheran Church was born at Oelsnitz in Saxony, in the year 1869. After enjoying a good education in the higher schools of Stollberg and Chemnitz, he emigrated to the United States when fifteen years of age, settling in Fort Wayne, Ind. In 1887 he entered upon his studies at the Thelogian [sic] Seminary at St. Louis, where he was graduated in 1890. He first charge as minister of the Gospel was in Buffalo, N.Y. On account of failing health, he was obliged to leave his congregation there and take a charge in the country. He accepted a call from Medina, a small town in New York State. Later he removed to Newark, in the same State. After St. Paul's Congregation at Elmira had been bereft, by death of their pastor, Rev. J. Frosch, who had so long served them in the most self-sacrificing manner, Rev. Graupner was called to take his place. This was in 1899. By his consistent life, his earnest endeavor and thoughtful, studious elucidation of the teachings of Christ, he has gained the love and esteem of his congregation and all who have the pleasure of his acquaintance. Under his guidance this Congregation is making steady progress. As a rule, services are held by him in the forenoon and evening of each Sunday. He conducts Sunday School in the morning. The Ladies Aid and the Young People's Association, connected with the church, convene monthly and enjoy his constant help.1a

Over 300 handmade wood carvings from the 1800s depicting the life of Christ are on display this weekend at the Trinity Lutheran Church, 3225 Roosevelt.

"The Life of Christ Wood Carving Pageant" consists of 15 vignettes from the story of Jesus Christ's life, including the travels of the Wise Men, the flight into Egypt, Jesus' entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, and his ascension.

The collection includes hand-painted human and animal figures made of basswood and sugar pine, as well as cardboard backgrounds. The wooden people measure about five to six inches tall, and the animals were carved to scale said Rev. Herbert Graupner, who owns the carvings.

Graupner, a Muskegon resident and the pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, said he first put the collection on display in 1986 for the Centennial Anniversary of Trinity Lutheran Congregation and then at the Muskegon Museum of Art.

Graupner explained that his great-grandfather, Karl Graupner, began crafting the pieces by hand in the early 1850s in Dresden, Germany. Karl Graupner spent over forty years creating many of wooden figures and the cardboard scenery he said.

Graupner described the work as interesting and "dynamic," explaining that the figures were extremely detailed.

Herbert said the carvings had an interesting journey to the United States. In an essay, Herbert said Karl gave the carvings to his son, Paul, who decided to enter the Lutheran ministry. When Paul Graupner finished his studies, he thought he was assigned to Victoria, Australia and sent them there immediately.

He later learned that he was actually assigned to Buffalo, N.Y. and the carvings traveled around the world for a year. When the collection was finally returned to Paul, the figures were undamaged but the ocean air had ruined the enamel paint.

Paul also realized that the Lord's Supper scene was missing, Graupner wrote, but it was never found.

In 1895, Karl Graupner fell ill and was advised to take an extended rest from his business. Karl decided to visit his son, Paul, in the U.S. and in the three months he spent visiting, he repainted and added to the collection.

After his father's death, Paul Graupner took the collection wherever he went, including stints in New York, Ontario and Michigan. Paul also took up wood carving and added pieces to the collection.

After Paul retired and passed away in 1950, the carvings were placed into the care of his two daughters, and given to Herbert after one of them died in 1985.2a

12424 DANIELS.-At Berlin, Ontario, Canada, March 13, 1910, Ella Graves, wife of the Rev. Eugene D. Daniels, aged sixty-two years. Mrs. Daniels was born in Methuen, now a part of Lawrence, Mass., in 1847. Her education was complete, having had the advantage of some of the best schools in her native state. She was married at an early age, and enjoyed a happy married life of thirty-nine years. She was the mother of seven children, five daughters and two sons, two of whom died in infancy. She was brought up in the Christian Church, but after her marriage united with the Methodist Church of which her husband was then a pastor. Later she came with him heartily and intelligently into the New Church. She was a woman of strong religious instincts and deep experience, and as such was an "helpmeet" for her husband in the truest and best sense of the term. She was endowed with good judgment and abundant tact, and made herself extremely useful in church work wherever she resided. She was also a tower of strength to her husband, holding up his hands in every endeavor that he put forth, and lending him encouragement and support in developing the best things the church has to offer. Her was bright and cheerful, and her home a happy and well-ordered one. Her personality was agreeable and her manners attractive, so that she commanded the respect and confidence of the community outside of her immediate circle. and was frequently called upon for advice and assistance in matters of general interest. She was very popular in La Porte, where she resided so many years with her husband, and had already won the hearts of the people of Berlin. Their love for her was attested by the wise and willing assistance they rendered her family during her illness, and by the delicate attentions shown the family at her death. Her removal from this scene of her activities seems to our natural eyes an irreparable loss to her husband and family, and to the society and the church at large; but we believe that it will be largely compensated by the new and more interior life that will flow in from the spiritual world. It is a comfort to know that she leaves three daughters to take up and carry on her work and to maintain a home for her husband. We extend to Mr. Daniels and his children the love and sympathy of the whole church in their great affliction. S. S. S.1a

WORDS OF SYMPATHY.

"Berlin becomes known through sorrow as through joy, and its generous spirit is kindly mentioned. The following is from the La Porte (Indiana) Argus-Bulletin of last Saturday. - Rev. E. D. Daniels and daughter, Lilian, who came to this city yesterday with the remains of Mrs.-Daniels, returned today to Berlin, Ontario, accompanied by Mr. Schneider, an ex-member of the councilmanic body in that city, and a member of Mr. Daniels' congregation. It was a sad La Porte coming for Mr. Daniels. He found here the sympathy of a legion of friends extended in the most generous measure. It found expression in word and deed and in the bud and flower, in the tears of those who knew Mrs. Daniels but to love her. The sympathy of friends at Berlin was equally generous. The floral offerings were magnificent and the entire community was kin in expression of sympathy to the bereaved husband. The return of. Mr. Daniels to Berlin today was attended by expressions of sympathy, attesting a love which is abiding."2a

MANY KIND FRIENDS.

"A letter published in the La Porte, Indiana, Herald, of March 17, concerning Mrs. E. D. Daniels during her last sickness, contains the following:

"The people of Berlin are universally kind and sympathetic. The church has offered to relieve her husband from his Sunday and Wednesday evening services, the organizations and individuals of the church, and the Ladies' Monday Club of the community have kept her sick room constantly supplied with an abundance of beautiful cut roses, carnations, daffodils, violets, etc., the people have sent her and the family many kind remembrances such as devices for taking care of the sick and other useful articles; and, seeing that the family were wearing cut, they have insisted on providing a trained nurse, the church council and Ladies Aid vieing with each other to see which would do it first. From the city pastors' club officially, from callers each day, and even from Berlin citizens, there have come expressions of sympathy which are very encouraging, and for which the family are profoundly grateful."3a

12451 M. Grebenstein, Fashionable Tailor and Clothier, King Street - Among the popular and prominent tailors of Berlin is Mr. M. Grebenstein, who conducts business on King Street, opposite the Germania Block. He is a practical cutter, and has achieved well deserved popularity as one of the leaders of gentlemen's fashions in town. The premises occupied are 23x80 feet in dimensions, and are well stocked with a large and valuable assortment of English, Scotch and French woollens for suitings; broadcloth, etc., which he cuts and makes to order in the most fashionable styles at moderate prices. Mr. Grebenstein controls a large trade among the merchants and citizens, by whom he is endorsed and recommended for his taste and skill in making perfect fitting, stylish clothing, etc. Mr. Grebenstein started in business in 1869, the firm being Gotleib & Grebenstein, which was continued for six years and dissolved, when he is commenced business for himself, in which he has proved eminently successful, but it has been by, as he himself expresses it, "hard, steady work and by sticking to it; business success depends a great deal upon the man himself." In this Mr. Grebenstein has uttered a truism that is not alone applicable to his own case, but to business in general. It is those who "stick to it" and "work hard and steady" that succeed in life's great race. Mr. Grebenstein gives employment to ten skilled and competent hands. He is a native of Germany, and he served in the Council here for two years, and is well and favorably known to the whole community, and popular with all who patronize him.1a

12465 I have emailed you before about this Robert Green and possible connection with my Eliza Green (born ireland, lived Scotland, her descendents ended up in OZ). I have investigated your Robert Green (all records I could find online) and my Eliza Green PLUS ended up tracking a John Green (who also appears on your website). All three of these people list their parents as John Green and Margaret Wallace. Tracking through all three people's records in various countries (Ireland, Scotland, Canada) I have come to the conclusion that these three people are siblings. This is what I have found:
John Green married Margaret Wallace 17 October 1828 Ballyhea, Cork, Ireland. Margaret can be found with some of the younger children in 1841 scottish census in Ochiltree, Ayreshire, Scotland. She is born in county but none of her children are. No husband (John) listed. She is listed as a straw milliner(?). Margaret is deceased by 1855 marriage of son John (as per his marriage record), as is father, John. I am currently assuming father John is dead by 1841. Their children:
1. Eliza "Sandem" (as listed on dc) Green baptised 16 Aug 1829 Ballyhea, Cork Ireland. 1841 scottish census is working as a servant in Ochiltree, Scotland. All her census information lists her birth place as Ireland. Marriage & death certs list parents as John Green and Margaret Wallace.

2. Margaret Green. b. abt 1831 from 1841 scottish census, living with mum Ochiltree, Ayrshire, Scotland.

3. Agnes Green. b. abt 1831 from scottish census, living with mum. d. 24 Apr 1846 Ochiltree, Ayrshire - killed apparently.

4. John Green. b. 22 Jan 1836 Cork Ireland (as per marriage certificate which also states his birth was not registered). 1841 scottish census living with mum at Ochiltree, Ayrshire. 1851 census working as a farm labourer Ochiltree. 30 Nov 1855 marries Jane Lawson at Monkton and Prestwick, Ayrshire Scotland (lists his residence as Ochiltree and his parents Margaret Wallace & John Green, both deceased). First child Margaret born abt 1856 Scotland. Then immigrates to Canada where 2nd daughter, Agnes is born in 1858, followed by Robert 1860. Appears in Canada censuses from 1861 onwards (Waterloo region, Huron North, Saskatchewan) and has lots more children. His records in Canada indicate born in Ireland but origin as Scottish. Which makes sense, ie he was born in Ireland but came from Scotland to Canada. I think you have this John Green on your website but not "linked" to Robert.

One assumes that the family moved from Ireland to Scotland between these two child births (perhaps because dad died? And mum moved back to county and country of birth?)

5. Robert Green. b. abt 1837 Glasgow, Lanarkshire (have not yet found birth record in Scotland but it may not have been recorded based on information found on brother John). 1841 census living with mum in Ochiltree, Scotland - not born in county. 1851 census is working for a Cothier Master in Ochiltree, Ayreshire. Must immigrate before 1859 (perhaps with brother John and his wife & child?) as he married Jane Brown 14 Oct 1859 Waterloo, Ontario (he is now a merchant tailor, lists his parents etc). You have the rest of the info on this bloke.

I am continuing on searching for this Green family - in particular the deaths of John Green Snr and his wife Margaret. Interestingly a number of the children's records (Eliza and John) list the deceased father John Green Snr's occupation as a gardener.1a

12505 Died, on Thursday afternoon, May 20th, 1882, at 1:30 o'clock, Jane Grieve, relict of the late Jared Swan, aged 88 years and 11 months. The subject of this notice was a native of Selkirkshire, Scotland, and was born in the year 1793. She was united in marriage with Jared Swan in 1824. Together with her husband and two daughters she emigrated to Canada in 1832 and located on the property one mile south of Galt and known as the "Swan estate,", on which she continued to reside until the decease of her husband in 1877. The entire life of the aged couple was spent on this rustic homestead. Though quiet and uneventful their life was worthy, and into which nothing penetrated, which they could avoid, to mar its purity. In religious matters they were hearty sympathizers, and as long as they were able, attended services of the Free Church. Their life fully exemplified the true Christian ideal of standing firm and steadfast to the end. Since the death of her husband, Mrs. Swan has resided with her daughters Mrs. Andrew Turnbull, of Mill creek, and Mrs. Jas. Dryden, of West Dumfries. For two or three years back that most dreaded disease, cancer, was working its slow but most certain consequences, having a seat in her left side, and which caused her great sufferings in her ripe old age. For some months back the cancer had taken its deadly hold on her system, and thence she knew no rest. Despite her agonizing suffering she held out with a fortitude surprising, until at length nature asserted itself and ended her earthly career. The funeral, which took place on Saturday forenoon last, was well attended by sorrowing relatives and acquaintances, testifying their respect for the deceased, as one of Dumfries' first pioneers. Rev. J. K. Smith officiated at the funeral. The following pall-bearers laid the remains of their lamented grandmother in the grave, viz: - Messrs. Andrew Turnbull, Jared Turnbull, Thomas Turnbull, James Dryden, J. Wrigley, and P. Maclellan. The deceased has yet a sister living in Beverly at the advanced age of ninety-two years. - Com.1a

12511 Henry Griffin, Ex-Reeve of Ayr, Passes

Henry Griffin, a man whose life was closely integrated with Ayr's municipal development over the past 30 years, passed away suddenly at his home early Thursday morning following a lengthy period of indifferent health.

Devoted Lifetime to Municipal Government

Aged 74 years, Mr. Griffin had devoted much of his lifetime to municipal administration here - some of these years as reeve, and later as an observant ratepayer who exereised his privilege to comment on village affairs, backed by long experience on council.

Built Ayr's Paved Roads


Mr. Griffin first was elected to Ayr council in the mid 1920's and rose to the reeveship in 1928. A man of keen foresight, he recognized the necessity for cement pavement on Ayr's main thorough-fares as a requisite for the village's development. Although this plan was not without opposition, he was successful in seeing it completed in 1929. During the following three decades Mr. Griffin was often to hear ratepayers comment that it was one of Ayr's best investments and outstanding features.


An Adroit Election Campaigner

An Adroit Election Campaigner A man of great vitality and drive, Mr. Griffin caught the public fancy and was returned as reeve term after term. In those years Ayr was a hotbed of municipal politics and every election was keenly contested. Mr. Griffin thrived on such election battles and his adroit and able campaigning is still referred to locally as a classic example.


Moved to Toronto

During this early period he was Customs officer in Ayr, but when the Department decided to close the office here prior to World War II he was transferred to Toronto. He regretfully resigned the reeveship to follow these instructions.

Returned as Ayr's Post-war Reeve

On his retirement from the service in 1947, the family returned to Ayr and Mr. Griffin once more entered the political arena. He was elected reeve on his first attempt and carried on until defeated at the polls in 1952. Although he was unsuccessful in subsequent efforts to regain office, his keen observations and recom-mendations as a ratepayer commanded considerable attention from those in authority. Only a few years ago his criticism of high hydro Tates here resulted in a reduction at the insistence of the Ontario HEPC.


Led Community Centre Campaign

In 1948, during his second tenure of office, the campaign for the Community Centre commenced. Mr. Griffin stood solidly behind the and chairman of the building committee saw the plan materialize. His work on this project required, at various times, a high degree of diplomacy and even political skill which he demonstrated most aptly.

Twice Warden of County

The highlight of his career was the fact that he was twice warden of Waterloo County Council, in 1930 and 1951. This honor has never before or since been. accorded the same man twice. While Ayr's representative on county council, he served on numerous committees, including the county representative on Western University senate.

Consideration for the Less Fortunate

His colorful and oftimes turbulent reeveship was featured by a forthrightness of action which usually ended with success of the project at hand. When he was convinced of the correctness of his views he was uncompromising in carrying them to conclusion. Opposition, large or small, was met with the same stalwart defence - or aggressiveness. Throughout his career, however, he had utmost consideration for the people of modest means and often squeezed the tax rate down a mill or two to make it more acceptable to these residents.

5-Year War Service

Born in Burnley, Lancashire, England, he came to Canada in 1903 and arrived in Ayr shortly after. He worked as a moulder in the Watson foundry until the outbreak of World War I. As a British reservist he answered the call to colors in 1914 and served for five years with a signals unit of the Royal Engineers, seeing action in France and Belgium. On his return here he became librarian and Customs officer.

Ex-Zone Commander of Legion

His war service left a deep impression on him and interested him in rehabilitation of veterans. He was instrumental in organizing a Canadian Legion branch here and until leaving for Toronto was a devoted worker in solving veterans' problems. He rose to the office of Zone Commander.

A Strong Conservative

On a national level Mr. Griffin was an old line Conservative who headed the party's local organization for years. Ile was intimate with many of the party's officials who were high in praise of his work.

Former Methodist S.S. Superintendent

In religion he was a Methodist, and prior to church union was superintendent of the Methodist Sunday School here. Mr. Griffin was a long time member of the Canadian Order of Foresters and took an active part in its affairs during the period a lodge existed here.

Door Always Open to Aid Seekers

As a man who could implement action from many government bodies, he was continuously visited by local residents seeking assistance in pension arrangements, welfare problems and even personal troubles. In all these instances Mr. Griffin did not make a token gesture of assistance - he made a wholehearted effort.

He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth, and a son Harry, of Ayr; a brother, William of Port Hope, and a sister, Anne, in Leakburn, England.

The Funeral

The largely attended funeral service was held at the W. O. Ball Funeral Parlor on Monday, con-ducted by Rev. W. J. V. Buchanan and Rev. J. W. Currie. Ititermeni was made in Ayr Cemetery.

The pallbearers, all World War I veterans, were: Albert Upton, James Burton, A. J. Hadfield, Harold Cornford, Lloyd Markle and Dee King. Flower bearers were: Harold L. Charles, G. H. Lawrence, Harry Boulton, Brantford; Jack Swan, Reg. Parker and Floyd Carothers. In attenth,nce were many representatives of organizations with which Mr. Griffin was associated, including William Anderson, M.P.; Ray M. Myers, M.P.P.; James Johannes, Waterloo County warden, and County Clerk Charles Stager, as well as members of Ayr Council.

12516 FRANCIS WILSON GRIFFITHS.

Francis Wilson Griffiths, a barrister at Niagara Falls and a representative of an old Canadian family, was born June 7, 1874, in Flesherton in county Grey. His father, John Charles Griffiths, was a native of the county of Welland and for thirty years engaged in business as a leather manufacturer in Owen Sound, but is now living retired, enjoying well earned rest at the age of sixty- four years. The ancestry on the mother's side were United Empire Loyalists, having settled in the township of Pelham in the county of Welland at the time of the American revolution.

Mr. Griffiths is a graduate of Trinity University, which institution conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Civil Law. He was a student in the law office and under the direction of H. P. O'Connor, Q.C., of Walkerton, for two years, and for one year with W. R. German, K.C., M.P., of Welland. On leaving Mr. German 's office he graduated from Osgoode Hall, where he remained as a student for three years, and after being called to the Bar he opened an office for practice at Niagara Falls in June, 1897. Advancement at the Bar is proverbially slow and yet Mr. Griffiths was not long in winning a good clientage and his practice has steadily increased in volume and importance until he is recognized as one of the abler representatives of the law among its younger members. His firm is now Griffiths & McGuire.

He was married to Miss Theresa Catherine MacCallum of Galt, a daughter of George MacCallum, who for years has been a representative of the Grand Trunk Railway at Galt. They now have one son, John Francis. Mr. Griffiths is a member of the Masonic lodge at Niagara Falls, in which he has held various offices, being now a past master.

12518 Mr. Carl Grill worked at the trade here and did a bit of contracting but what is of more importance, historically at least, is that he taught his two sons, Charles and Henry, the trade in its several branches and made a good job of it.

In due course, Carl Grill retired from the trade to devote more time to his farm on the River Road and Charles and Henry started on their own, in partnership, under style: "Grill Bros." which name came to be known widely and favorably throughout a large area; and which partnership subsisted many years during the course of which the firm built more buildings in Hespeler than any other firm of contractors before them or since.

By the time they started, stone for building was being to some extent replaced by brick which by then had become available; and another type of building known as the rough cast house was being built because of its lower cost.

In Building a rough cast house a baloon frame was made and one inch wooden strips were nailed so far apart up and down and to these strips wooden lath, which had replaced the split board type, were nailed the thickness of a lath apart and the outside coat of plaster was applied starting at the top. The mortar which squeezed between the lath, when hard, held the plaster in position.

Grill Bros. adopted a different system. They put the lath the width of a lath apart and started plastering at the bottom, thereby filling the one inch space back of the lath with plaster. This made a wall of plaster outside the wood sheathing. This construction became known as the concrete plaster house and was so highly regarded from the standpoint of being a fire deterrent that some insurance companies gave a concession of ten cents in the rate from 75 to 65 cents.

The first building erected by the new firm of Grill Bros. was the office building at the corner of Queen and Cooper Street which was occupied on part of the ground floor as a store; and on the second story as a dwelling with kitchen and another room downstairs. William A. Kribs was the first tenant of these living quarters, into which he moved when he married.

In the Country round about, notably in Pinebush, there were a lot of Masons who worked with Grill Bros. when not engaged in building barn foundation walls, etc., among them being William Bartels, Charles Baumgartner, Abraham Brethauer, Henry Knack, Heinrich Kreig. Peter Each, Henry Bruder, Ernest Radke, Heinrich Kreig.1a

His son, Harold, who had learned the trade with his father, then took over, remained about two years in that stand and then in 1948 moved to the present location in the Smellie Block where he has a high class store such as one would look for in our cities.3a

12523 After learning the tinsmithing at Preston, Louis Grill went to Guelph and there worked at the trade for several years. In 1896 he came to Hespeler, and on the site of the Johnston Blacksmith Shop, erected the fine building Leroy Wettlaufer now owns. In this building he successfully conducted the hardware business and a tinshop in connection until he died.

He was a member of New Hope Masonic and Hespeler Oddfellows Lodges and in religion, a Lutheran. He served on the Town Council for three years, 1911-13, with credit to himself. He was a useful member. We were for years next door neighbors, and I frequently dropped into his store. Usually some little story was told by one or the other or some joke.

One morning during the winter the temperature dropped to about Zero, and when I entered the store Lou. remarked that it was a cold morning; down tn Zero, I told him I thought he had better bring in the thermometer which hung outside before it got any colder.

It happened that morning was just the start and for three or four mornings it got colder and colder until it struck about forty below; I dropped in that morning and found Louis with his collar turned up fixing away at the fire in his stove. He mentioned that this was a corker and I started right in abusing him for not having brought the thermometer in when I told him four days ago.

Ever after that, when it happened to be either very cold or very hot, Louie, with a twinkle in his eye used to say "I'll have to bring the thermometer in before it gets worse.''

The hundreds that knew him will tell you there never was a finer, more decent man in Hespeler than Louis Grill.1a

12533 Lydia Clemens was born in Williamsburg, Waterloo County, and Fred Grischow in the northern region of Germany called Mecklenburg-Schwerin. Fred immigrated to Canada in 1868 and became a naturalized Canadian citizen in 1878.
Frederick's birth year is a bit unclear. Three sources peg his birth year at 1845: the 1881 census says he is 36 years old, his first marriage registration in 1873 says 28 years old, and his second marriage registration in 1878 says 33 years old. The 1901 census states he was born May 4, 1840. His death registration says he was born May 4, 1837 and his tombstone says 1837-1923. Assuming his death record is correct, it seems his birth year got earlier as Fred got older. Of course, as an immigrant whose birth record was back in Germany, it would be hard for any of his peers to double-check. It could be that Fred initially wanted people to think he was younger than he really was.
Lydia Clemens' birth record was discovered in New York State in the 1960s. There was a collection of documents owned by a rare book dealer that originally belonged to Thomas Saunders, the Clerk of the Peace during the 1840s for Wellington District, Upper Canada. The documents were purchased by A. Leone Hinds, who transcribed them and donated the originals to public archives in Ontario.
Waterloo County was part of Wellington District in those days. Some of the documents were letters from church ministers complying with the new requirement to submit lists annually for all births, marriages, and deaths that they presided over in their congregations. Many from Waterloo County were from the Mennonite Bishop Benjamin Eby. One birth record was the following:
May 8, 1848, Abraham D. Clemens, Veronica formerly Shantz, a daughter.
p. 19, Waterloo County Marriages, Births and Burials, 1840-1849 as Recorded in Wellington District by the Clerk of the Peace Thomas Saunders, compiled by A. Leone Hinds, Waterloo-Wellington Branch of the Ont. Genealogical Society, June 1992.
That was the entire official record of Lydia Clemen's arrival. Notice that in those early days of collecting vital statistics, the baby's name was not even included in the birth record!

Family Life
On Jan. 12, 1873, Frederick and Lydia were married by Jacob Hoelsche, a Lutheran minister. Both are residents in Lydia's birthplace, Williamsburg, Waterloo Twp., a small hamlet south-west of Berlin. Fred is a farmer.
On their marriage record, both bride and groom are listed as being Lutheran, although Lydia was raised Mennonite. They seem to have raised their family Lutheran without completely losing Lydia's ties to the Mennonite church. Both of them were eventually buried at First Mennonite cemetery, and daughter Mary would eventually marry a Mennonite (Leander Snider).
Six months after Fred and Lydia married, on June 20, 1873 son Noah C. was born. The "C." likely stood for Christoph, after Fred's father. Mary Lydia came on Feb. 5, 1877. At this time, the family is still in Waterloo Twp., and Fred is a labourer, likely a farm hand.
Ezra Eby, writing in his Biographical History of Waterloo Township in 1895, records a third child of Fred and Lydia, Susannah, but with no birthdate. He lists her first, but it is unlikely she could've been born before Noah given how soon he was born after his parents' wedding. She may have been a twin to Noah, or may have been born between Noah and Mary. There is no birth record for Susannah, but neither is there one for Noah as it was just after mandatory birth registrations had been introduced. She is not listed with the family in the 1881 census, nor is there any death record for her. If Susannah Grischow did exist, she apparently lived a short life.
Shortly after Mary's birth in 1877, the family moved from Waterloo Twp. to Wilmot Twp., probably close to New Dundee. Fred likely got a job working for a different farmer.

Death & Remarriage
A couple months after daughter Mary's first birthday, her mother became very sick. After a month of gradually getting weaker, Lydia died of consumption on May 3, 1878, 5 days before she would have turned 30. Consumption was a medical term of that day referring to a gradual wasting away of the body, usually related to pulmonary (lung) dysfunction. The most common cause of consumption was tuberculosis. Lydia's physician was Dr. H. Miller from New Dundee, and a neighbour, John S. Hallman, informed the local registrar of the death.
Needing a mother for his two (or three?) young children, Fred remarried 10 weeks after Lydia's death, on July 21, 1878. Mary Rodass (Rhodes) was a Lutheran from Germany, born Nov. 20, 1855. Her parents were John and Dorothea Rodass. Her immigration year is not known.
Fred and his new wife would have 8 more children, half of them "May babies": Lillie (May 24, 1879), twins Ella and Elma (May 14, 1881), Ivan R. (May 17, 1883), Ida Hulda (Dec. 15, 1887), Alfred F. (June 2, 1891), Dorothy A. (Sept. 1, 1892), and John Milton Herbert (Sept. 21, 1895). Alfred was known as "Freddie" and Dorothy as "Dora." The youngest went by "Herbie."
Throughout these years, Fred is consistently listed as a labourer, probably a farm hand. The family moved back to Waterloo Twp. after the twins were born (May 1881) and that would turn out to be the final move for Fred. He would live at that residence for another 42 years until his death.

The Grischow Kids All Grown Up
Noah Grischow was a 28-year-old miller in Berlin when he married Harriett Bartholomew on Nov. 20, 1901. Harriett's parents were Martin Thomas Bartholomew and Sarah Lesham, who were born and married in Kent, England. Both Noah and Harriett listed their denomination as Church of England. (Harriett may have also gone by the name Lucy.) In 1904-5, Noah was the postmaster of Strasburg, a position his father-in-law had held since 1891 and one his mother-in-law would later take on until that post office closed in 1914. (For the postmaster data, see this page by Mrs. A. Reist and scroll down towards the end of the article.)
They had five children: Ford, Roxie, Noah Jr., Thomas, and Elmer. Roxie would marry Henry Sittler , who became one of the founding managers of Home Hardware.
Noah and Harriett's married life would not last too long however. On Mar. 14, 1914 at age 40, Noah succumbed after a year of suffering from asthma. Dr. J. H. Cormack from New Dundee recorded the immediate cause of death as "hemorrage of lungs, duration 1 week." Harriett would remarry in 1919 to Andrew Holt, and would live to age 65, passing away in 1945. Noah and Harriett are buried at Strasburg Cemetery on Biehn Dr. in Kitchener.
Mary Grischow married Leander Snider and died at age 40 of diabetes.
Lillie Grischow married Joseph Miller on Sept. 4, 1898 in Berlin. Joseph's parents were Ferdinand Miller and Hannah Wagner.
What happened with the twins Ella and Elma is not yet known. Elma was a witness at her sister Lillie's wedding.
Ivan R. Grischow is buried at Woodland Cemetery in Kitchener. He died in 1957. Beside him is his wife Amelia (1890-1972). There are two stones adjacent which are likely sons of Ivan and Amelia: Howard Grischow (1914-1970) and Walter Grischow (1921-1998).
Ida's later whereabouts are not yet known, nor are Alfred's.
Dora Grischow had a son out of wedlock on Sept. 22, 1908 in Waterloo Twp. However, young Stanley Lloyd Grischow died of pneumonia less than 2 years later on May 27, 1910.
Herbert Grischow's life appears to have been varied and the details are still sketchy. We have 3 pieces of information about him.
Fact #1: Kathleen Dorothy Grischow was a 2-day-old infant who died March 19, 1923 in Kitchener. Her parents are listed as Herbert Grischow, born in Waterloo Twp., and Venata Mader, born in Breslau. Venata's father was Aaron Mader.
Fact #2: Martha (Snider) Arndt remembers a visit from a Herbie Grischow and his American wife Belle in the late 1940s or early 1950s. They drove all the way from California, an unusual accomplishment in those days. They had no children.
Fact #3: Herbert Grischow died in Los Angeles, California, on Dec. 10, 1953 at age 58. He had no social security number, suggesting he never became an American citizen. His death record can be viewed online.
Piecing together these three facts, it appears Herbie was married twice. Sometime after being widowed or divorced from his first wife, he moved to the U.S. and remarried an American.

Later in Life
Fred Grischow lived to be 85 years 10 months and 10 days old, according to his death registration. He died of heart failure on Mar. 18, 1923 and was buried 5 days later at First Mennonite Church cemetery in Kitchener.
His wife Mary died in 1931 and is buried with Fred.

GRODY. - On the 30th of June, in Perth Co., Ont., Daniel Grody. He was born in the state of Pensylvania*, in 1816. In 1830 he came with his parents to Canada. In 1839 he was married to Elizabeth Wilfang, with whom he lived in matrimony over 50 years. He was the father of fourteen children. He leaves a widow and twelve children, 30 grand-children and 2 great-grandchildren. he suffered severely for about five months with dropsy, though he bore it all with great patience, for he had peace with God. Several days before his death he said to his family that he could already see the beautiful road he was to go: he saw the door of heaven standing open. He also saw the beautiful city of Jerusalem gleaming in its beauty. Also many other testimonies he had that his soul was in peace with God. So we need not mourn as those who have no hope, but feel assured that he is at rest. He was a member of the old Mennonite Church, and was buried on the 2d of July at the Hamstead meeting-house.

12558 Andrew Groff, "son of John and Anna (Moyer) Graff, was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, April 18th, 1793. His boyhood days were spent in acquiring a business education which proved of great benefit to him in later years. At the age of seventeen he made choice of the milling business as the most pleasing to his taste. His first years of apprenticeship were served in Earl Township where he remained until 1822 when he was induced by others to seek his fortune either in the West or in Canada. Being persuaded by one Joseph Mosser and others who were on the point of leaving for Canada, to join in with their company, he came to Waterloo in the fall of 1822 and found everything most satisfactory. As he was a miller by trade, old Abraham Erb wanted him to take charge of his grist mills which he intended to do after moving to Canada. After being here a short time and making arrangements to move to Canada he started again for Pennsylvania. Arriving at home in safety and spending a few weeks in visiting friends, he then set out for his new home. He left Pennsylvania with his wife and family of four children and made the trip to Canada in seventeen days. On his arrival at Waterloo in November, 1822, he was engaged by Abraham Erb to work on the saw mill where he remained three weeks, after which he entered the employ of Mr. Shade of Galt where he remained for nearly two years, and acquired a considerable amount of cash. He then purchased 200 acres of land half way between Preston and Galt and in a few years he was the proprietor of a store, tavern, grist mill, saw mill, and distillery, from all of which he soon realized quite a fortune, becoming one of the wealthiest men in the county. In 1848 he sold this property and purchased the farm of the late David Erb, north of the town of Waterloo, now in possession of his son Jacob. During the close of his life he lived on the place now possessed by Mr. F. Scheifle, a little to the north of the town of Waterloo. Here he died May 11th, 1877. He was married in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in 1815, to Annie, daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth (Reist) Huber. She was born October 15th, 1795, and died in Waterloo County, Ontario, September 19th, 1865. They had a family of twelve children."1a

SAMUEL GROFF. PRESIDENT NORTH WEST BUTTON CO.

Mr. Samuel Groff, though not a native born Berliner, still is a son of the fine old County of which Berlin is the chief town. He comes of Pennsylvania German stock. His grand father was Andrew Groff who learned the trade of Miller in his home state-Pennsylvania. In 1822 he came to Waterloo and after a few years spent there and at Galt, he acquired a large tract of land near Preston, where he carried on farming, saw-milling, a grist mill, store, hotel and distillery and became one of the wealthiest men in the county. His eldest son, Isaac, was the father of the subject of this sketch, who was born near Freeport in 1847. He early entered mercantile life in the late J. Hoffman's store and was one of the earlier merchants in Berlin. He was head of the firm Groff and Hymmen for many years, a house that was among the largest in the county. Several years ago, he went to Winnipeg and at present he is president of the North West Button Co.2a

The name of Groff in Waterloo in the nineteenth century was associated with the raising of Shorthorn cattle.

Andrew Groff of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, settled in 1822 on 170 acres at the location of the Galt Country Club. He later owned a grist mill, general store, tavern and a distillery. In the 1840s the family moved to Waterloo where his sons and grandsons, with outstanding success, bred and raised Shorthorn cattle.

A Knight of Warlaby, imported from Scotland, proved to be an outstanding sire. A son, A Baron of Waterloo," in 1882 was Grand Champion at the leading Canadian show at Kingston. In 1886 he was champion at Guelph. He was then sold to the Hon. George Brown. This bull sired what was probably the best show herd in Canada, winning awards on the American and Canadian show circuits. The Groffs were justifiably proud of their reputation as Shorthorn breeders.

Erb Street (David Eby) Mennonite Church

Early services which began around 1837 were held in private homes. Land at the corner of Erb Street and Hallman Road, where the present-day cemetery is located, was donated by David Eby Sr. on July 14, 1851; a red brick church known as David Eby's Church was built in the same year. The first minister in the new church was Jacob M. Oberholtzer who served from 1852 to 1874. He was followed by Elias Schneider (1874-1889), Jonas Snider (1892-1900), Newton Weber (1921-1923), and Noah Hunsberger (1923-1929).

Due to a difference of opinion in the David Eby congregation, Sunday School classes were held at first in a private home, that of Levi Groff, beginning in 1887. The dissension which resulted culminated in a division in the church in 1889; the minister, Elias Schneider, and the deacon, Menno S. Shantz, left the church and joined with the Old Order Mennonites of Woolwich Township. The following year, 1890, saw the commencement of "Edification Meetings", which were held in the homes of members of the David Eby congregation. These meetings later became the Young People's Bible Meetings.

By the beginning of the twentieth century, it was recognized that the church building was either in need of repair or in need of complete replacement. Consideration was given to building a new church on the same site or on a site on King Street North. A decision was made to accept from Samuel S. Snider the donation of a parcel of land which was also on Erb Street, but nearer town. Excavation of the foundation for the new church began in the Spring of 1902. A dedication service was held on August 17, 1902. A parsonage was built in 1929 on land donated by Herbert Snider, the son of Samuel Snider. The church building was renovated and enlarged in 1949-1950; a dedication service was held on April 9, 1950. Further renovations were made in 1974.2a

GROFF - Moses Groff was born Sept. 12, 1851; died near New Hamburg, Ontario, on Aug. 7, 1927; ages 75 y., 10 m., 7 d. On Nov. 11, 1880, he was married to Magdalena Eshelman who precede him five years. This union was blessed with three children (Emma, Sylvia, and Hattie), one who preceded him in death 16 years). Three brothers also survive (Abram, Aaron, and Ezra). In 1893 he united with the Mennonite Church, where he served his Lord faithfully until He took him. As a member of the Biehn congregation his place indeed is vacant. When health permitted he was seldom absent from the service. We shall ever remember him as an appreciative, attentive listener who loved to do his Master's will. During the last period of illness he often expressed a union blessed with three children; one desire to worship with God's people and was always appreciative of seasons of worship in the home. He bore his recent affliction and suffering with Christian fortitude, but longed to go and be with the Lord. In his death the home shall miss him as a loving, helpful father and the Church a faithful, active member. On Aug. 9 the funeral services were held from his late home near New Hamburg to the Biehn church and adjoining cemetery for interment. Services in charge of the brethren, Osias Cressman, Curtis C. Cressman, and Manasseh Hallman

Trim Services Ltd.

Trim Services Ltd., as it is currently known, was established in 1901 under the name of S. Groff & Son. It operated as a manufacturers agent, servicing the garment industry in Western Canada. In its early years, the company was the Western Canada representative for Canadian Buttons Ltd., one of the largest button producers in the British Empire. They also represented many other companies in the needle trade, selling zippers, cotton trimming, pant bindings, buckles and, of interest, ivory and wooden buttons. The company opened an office in Vancouver in 1948
.
Bob Groff, the current owner, noted in 2001 that as impressive as it might be to survive 100 years in business, his family has roots in the garment industry dating back to the late 1600s. Hans Groff, one of his first ancestors to come to North America, landed in Grofftown, Pennsylvania and ran a successful business as a middleman handling furs between the aboriginal and expatriate European populations.

When Samuel Groff stepped off the train at Winnipeg on a spring day in 1901, he brought with him two things from his home in Waterloo County: a sample grip of buttons, and a deep desire to start a successful business in the West. In an article written in the mid-1950s, the company was described as having progressed from one man's pioneering effort to the combined services of 20 employees. It has always been a family business with as many as four nephews involved at one time.

The present business of Trim Services Ltd. was started by Allan B. Groff in 1972 as an outgrowth of Groff Agencies, continuing to provide services in the trimming needs of the needle trade. The company was purchased by the current owner, Bob Groff, in 1980 from his father. Bob, following in the long tradition of his family, had started out as a 19-year-old button cleaner in 1978. He continues to run a family-based business, supplying buttons, zippers, fabric, thread, and hangers to the garment manufacturers. Their business was conducted in the Exchange District of downtown Winnipeg, once inhabited by more than 100 garment-industry firms.

The business moved out of its downtown location in 2001 and today, Bob and his wife Lisa continue to operate Trim Services out of their home as a team with no employees. They continue to service some of the heavyweights in Winnipeg's garment industry, including Nygaard International, Standard Knitting, and Western Glove, generating over one million dollars in sales annually for the companies that they represent.

SAMUEL GROFF. PRESIDENT NORTH WEST BUTTON CO.

Mr. Samuel Groff, though not a native born Berliner, still is a son of the fine old County of which Berlin is the chief town. He comes of Pennsylvania German stock. His grand father was Andrew Groff who learned the trade of Miller in his home state\emdash Pennsylvania. In 1822 he came to Waterloo and after a few years spent there and at Galt, he acquired a large tract of land near Preston, where he carried on farming, saw-milling, a grist mill, store, hotel and distillery and became one of the wealthiest men in the county. His eldest son, Isaac, was the father of the subject of this sketch, who was born near Freeport in 1847. He early entered mercantile life in the late J. Hoffman's store and was one of the earlier merchants in Berlin. He was head of the firm Groff and Hymmen for many years, a house that was among the largest in the county. Several years ago, he went to Winnipeg and at present he is president of the North West Button Co.3a

12627 S. FRED GROFF. WINNIPEG MAN

Mr. S. Fred Groff is one of the younger of Berlin Old Boys. He was born in Berlin and is the eldest son of Mr. Samuel Groff. His early business training was acquired in the offices and shipping department of the W. G. & R. Co. There was laid a foundation on which he has builded a successful and promising career. After severing his relations with this firm he was, for several years in San Francisco holding a responsible position with a Guaranty Bond Company. But he was imbued with the thought that there are great prospects ahead for the young man with pluck and enterprise in the Canadian West, and with his father established the North West Button Company in Winnipeg. The business is growing with the country and as Secretary-Treasurer and head of the travelling men, Mr. Groff is responsible in no small measure for the success achieved. In addition to the button business, the Messrs. Groff handle a number of lines of Made in Berlin Goods. Among the firms they represent are the Berlin Suspender Co., Berlin Gauntlet Co., Star Whitewear Co., Reiner Bros., Wellesley, Galt Robe Co., and others.1a

12639 The Grim Harvester has been busily plying his sickle among us this week taking his victims in all stages of their pilgrimage - the infant, just started on life's journey; the young man in the prime of life; and the aged and weary pilgrims tired of the long journey and glad to lay down their burden and enter into rest. One such called home on Tuesday was Mrs. Hahn, mother of Messrs. Henry and Conrad Hahn. Mrs. Hahn was one the of the oldest settlers of the district who had experienced the trials and labour of pioneer life. She was well up in the eighties.

Wanner Mennonite Church
Begun: 1829

A small wooden meeting house was built in 1829 on a corner of the farm belonging to Samuel Bechtel which was located in the vicinity of the present-day regional headquarters of the Ministry of Natural Resources near the intersection of Highways 24 and 401. The site for this community meeting house, as well as a school and a burial ground, had been chosen on August 8, 1829. The land was donated by Samuel Bechtel and his wife Barbara (Baumann) on March 15, 1830. A new meeting house, of white brick, was built in 1837 on the east side of Henry Wanner's farm, somewhat north of the first meeting house. Meetings at first were held every eight weeks. The deed of land for the meeting house known as Wanner's was dated October 15, 1837. Early preachers were David Sherk, who had been ordained by Benjamin Eby in July 1837, Jacob Bretz, Jr., and Joseph Hagey.
Joseph Hagey was ordained bishop in 1851. During his time divisions occurred in the church by a surge of enthusiasm for a Methodist form of revivalism. Solomon Eby of Port Elgin, who announced his own conversion in December 1869, was leader of a group which believed that members could be converted through participation in revival meetings. John Baer of Wanner's became associated with Solomon Eby, and was compelled to leave the church in the spring of 1874, as were Eby and his other followers. The new church movement resulted in organization conferences which culminated in the conference on March 23, 1875 at Bloomingdale where New Mennonites and Reforming (or Reformed) Mennonites joined together as United Mennonites. The United Mennonites favored revival meetings, Sunday Schools and prayer meetings, and were opposed to the use of alcohol and tobacco.
The date of construction of the meeting house which replaced the one built in 1837 is somewhat in doubt. It is possible that a new building was erected in the early 1870s; it is also possible that the 1837 building only underwent extensive renovations at that time. There is no doubt, however, that a new brown brick church was built in 1938. An education wing was added in 1969.
The earliest Mennonite Sunday School in North America was begun in 1842 and was held jointly by the Wanner and Hagey Meeting Houses. It was discontinued after a short time because of a division of opinion within the congregations. An attempt was made later, in the mid-1860s, to begin another Sunday School, but this, too, did not last long. Many years later, on June 10, 1896, a meeting was held to organize a Sunday School. Anson Groh was appointed superintendent..2a

Groh.-Anson Groh was born April 17, 1859; died May 9, 1944, at his home near Preston, Ont., in which community he was born and had farmed till near the close of his life. He suffered a slight stroke about three and one-half years ago, and was in failing health since that time, though usually able to be up and about the home till the past January. He grew gradually weaker and passed quietly away without severe suffering. Although his mental powers faded as strength declined, he remained calm and conscious to the end. On March 7, 1882, he was united in marriage to Lovina Bechtel, who departed this life in August 1932. Eleven children were born to this union. One daughter died in 1914 at the age of eighteen. Surviving are 4 daughters (Mabel, and Esther at home; Ida, Mrs. Menno Snyder, near Kitchener; Bertha, Mrs. D. W. Lehman, Orrville, Ohio), 6 sons (Herbert, Ottawa; Melvin, Preston; Norman, Beamsville; Oscar, Detroit, Mich.; Ivan, St. Catharines; Harold, Toronto), 31 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren, and 4 brothers. He and his wife were interested in spiritual things. Before his conversion he was instrumental in helping to organize a Sunday school at the Hagey Church in order that his growing family might have Sunday-school privileges. Soon after J. S. Coffman came to Waterloo County, he and his wife gladly accepted salvation and united with the Wanner Mennonite Church, in which fellowship he remained till death. After helping at the Hagey Sunday School for a number of years, he turned his attention to the establishing of a Sunday school at the weaker Wanner church, where he served as superintendent and later as teacher for many years. He was a well-known speaker at Sunday-school conferences in the early days, and was a speaker at the first Sunday convention in Indiana. He served on the Mission Board of Ontario, and it was largely through his efforts that the Ontario Board of Mennonite Finance was organized. He was also largely used as a lecturer on agriculture and forestry by the Ontario Department of Agriculture. For some years he gave himself to the development of Farmer's Co-operation, while his last major task was the building and management of a Municipal telephone system. These responsibilities were relinquished one by one as age crept on, but he was devoted to his farm as long as he was able to get around. Funeral services were conducted by Bros. J. W. Witmer and B. B. Shantz at the Wanner Church, and the body was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery to await the resurrection.3a

12661 Hannes Groh, "a native of Switzerland, came to America at a very early date. Tradition has it that he belonged to the company of emigrants whom the captain attempted to starve in order to gain possession of the supposed large sum of money held by these parties. The motive that impelled old Hannes, the ancestor of the Groh family of this county, to emigrate to Pennsylvania, was on account of religious persecutions which raged in his native country and which was the chief cause of the emigration of so many of the noble-hearted pioneers of Pennsylvania where no cruel persecutions were waged against these devout worshippers of the almighty God. Old Hannes Groh was born about the year 1708 and, if traditional report be true, came to America in 1725. He was married to Magdalena, only daughter of old Wendel Baumann, progenitor of the now numerous family scattered throughout every state of the Union and all the provinces of Canada. All efforts made to ascertain the names of their children together with their descendants proved, to a great extent, fruitless. The names of only three children have been received"1a

He is the possessor of over 200 acres of land. Upwards of nearly half a century Mr. Groh's name has been connected with those whose object is to elevate and advance the cause of their fellow citizens. During the years 1877-78 he served the municipality of Waterloo Township as councilor. In 1879 he was first deputy reeve, and for the years 1880-83 he was reeve for the township. At the close of the year 1883 he, not wishing to be re-elected, retired from taking any interest in municipal matters. By the request and urging of his numerous friends, he again allowed himself to be elected as reeve for the township for the year 1889, at the close of which he again retired. He is still quite healthy and active, and could, if required, give a strong helping hand in managing municipal matters pertaining to the township. In politics he advocates the principles of the Reform party. On May 9th, 1848, he was married to Mary, daughter of Tobias and Catharine (Stryker) Wanner. She was born November 10th, 1828. They have had a family of eleven children"1a

Isaac Groh, Reeve of the Township of Waterloo, was born on the farm where he now resides, in the south-eastern portion of the township, fifty-two years ago. His ancestors were among the pioneers of the township, the family first coming hither from Pennsylvania in 1804, since which date they have been closely identified with the material affairs of this part of Waterloo, and of the community in general. Mr. Isaac Groh's entire life has been spent amid the scenes which now surround him, where, since attaining to man's estate, he has held a place of prominence among those whose efforts have been directed to the furtherance of local interests.

12686 Michael Groh, "the third son of old Hannes and Magdalena (Baumann) Groh, was born in 1757. In 1779 he was married to Elizabeth Witmer. In 1804 he, in company with others, came to Canada with the object of making a thorough inspection of the nature of the country. So well was Mr. Groh pleased with the appearance of the country (then all in its primeval state) that he took up a claim between Preston and Hespeler. He cleared about six acres and made it ready for fall wheat. On this clearing he erected a small log cabin into which he purposed moving on his return, with family, from Pennsylvania. In August of the same year he returned to his parental home in Montgomery County. During the first week of September (1804) he, (bidding adieu to his parents, brothers, friends and relatives, and not thinking of this being their last time of meeting here on earth) in company with his wife and family, set out on the journey for their Canadian home. They came as far as Buffalo where they crossed the Niagara River and proceeded on their journey to Mr. Boyer's who resided near the river on the Canadian side, where Mr. Groh, the father of the family, took sick and, after a few weeks suffering, died. The wife and two sons, John and Jacob, and one or two daughters, proceeded on their journey to Waterloo while the eldest daughter, Barbara, remained with her father to nurse him during his illness, and after his recovery they were to follow the family, but the mother and family had no sooner arrived at their new home when word came that the father was dead. He died about September 20th, 1804. Their family consisted of seven children"1a

GEORGE A. GRUETZNER. MANAGER HESPELER FURNITURE CO., HESPELER, ONT.

Mr. Geo. A. Gruetzner, one of the province's bright furniture manufacturers, is a native of New York State, having been born in Buffalo, N. Y., and is the son of a Baptist clergyman. His parents removed to Waterloo County when he was a mere lad. His education was obtained partly in New York State and partly in Ontario. As a young man, he learned the trade of carriage trimming and became proficient at it. Engaged in business for himself, he did the principal trimming of the county, fulfilling orders for Peter Gillies, of Galt, George Huck, of Berlin, Fred. Merner of Hamburg and others. In 1888, Mr. Gruetzner undertook the selling of furniture on commission for various firms in the county. In 1891, he engaged with The Simpson Company of Berlin as a travelling salesman and later assumed the management of its manufactory in Berlin, and conducted it successfully until it was merged into the Canada Furniture Syndicate. Before this occurred, Mr. Gruetzner purchased the furniture factory at Bloomingdale and formed a company to operate it. Receiving an offer of a bonus to locate in Preston the company removed there and established the Mineral Springs Furniture Company, now the Crown Furniture Co. When he severed his connections with the Simpson Company, he sold his interest in Preston. Having gained a good reputation as a manager of furniture enterprises, several centres held out inducements to him to establish such a factory. Principally because of the interest and energy of Mayor Forbes of Hespeler in the matter and the town's excellent shipping facilities, he decided to locate there, where a new company was formed and operations commenced. A fine furniture factory of pressed brick, 60x125, well-equipped, was errected in 1901 and it met with success from the outset. Three years later it was found necessary to build a large addition, also of pressed brick. Today, the company employs 90 mechanics, making only high-grade furniture, which has a reputation throughout the country, for design, finish and workmanship.

Mr. Gruetzner, while a citizen of Berlin, was an active member of the Board of Trade, and always progressive. The esteem in which he was held was shown by his election to the town council for two terms. His work there was characterized by a deep interest in the town and he aided in bringing in several industries. The was a member of the Berlin Club and proved himself to be social and always considerate towards others. His former fellow-citizens are glad to note his success in. Hespeler.2a

Monica
(On watching my child die)
As I sit here beside you, I feel at peace but I feel sad that there will be so many people who will never know you existed. May this little note I write, let everyone know that there once was a Monica - a little girl who was so full of life at three years old, who got into mischief, who told her daddy "I like you so much." She had no time to show some of the great things that people are capable of, but she fulfilled her role in life. She showed me how to live and now how to die. As I hold you in my arms these last moments, I am at peace knowing that I shall see you again

12757 KITCHENER - Jack Guest Jr. was sitting in his favourite chair when the heart attack struck on Christmas morning, 2016.

He'd felt ill since he woke up, complaining of shortness of breath and feeling sick to his stomach. His common-law wife, Anita Hoffman, says she was on the phone with paramedics when he collapsed.

"I called 911, and all of a sudden he just keeled over," Hoffman said.

Guest, a 74-year-old Cambridge musician who played open mic shows around the region, had no pulse when the ambulance arrived. Paramedics, discovering he had severe gastrointestinal bleeding, worked for half an hour to get his heart started again and rushed him to Grand River Hospital.

But Guest never regained consciousness. Four days later, he was declared brain dead and was taken off life support.

His case, which prompted a formal complaint to the regulatory body for the province's doctors, highlights the need for living wills - a legal document that explains a patient's health care wishes if they can't make decisions for themselves.

Five months after his death, Hoffman says she's still agonizing over those four difficult days in the hospital. As Guest's common-law wife, she was his substitute decision maker, giving her legal right to make decisions about his care while he was unconscious.

She says she fought hospital staff to keep him alive, and did not consent to the decision to end his life.

But his three adult children argued their father should not have been kept alive artificially. They wanted him to be allowed to pass away peacefully.

That disagreement pitted Guest's partner against his offspring and put the hospital in the middle of an emotional and ethical debate. With no living will to explain his wishes, both sides argued they had his best interests at heart......

12760 We this week have the melancholy duty of chronicling the death of Frederick Guggisberg, which occurred on Tuesday last the 25th ult. at Toronto; where he has been, since the beginning of the year, under treatment of Dr. Hodder, for a disease of the law and facial membranes, which ultimately extended to the brain.

Coming to Galt at the age of twelve, he entered the store of Fraser & Warnock, as message and shop-boy and with plodding industry, perseverance, and application to business which characterized his after career; he gradually raised himself, step by step, to the position of one of the principal merchants in Galt. Identifying himself with its progress, he occupied the several positions, of Ensign in the Volunteers, Councilor for Ward 4, and Church Warden for Trinity Church, faithfully well. The cares of his rapidly extending business, of late, required all of his attention, and when compelled, in October last, by the disease to which he ultimately succumbed, to withdraw from the management of the "Waterloo House"; few thought that the old familiar features would never again be seen on Main street. After a lingering illness by his prolonged sufferings, gave way under a painful operation, on the morning of the 20th ult. On the Saturday following, he became unconscious and continued so to the time of his death, on Tuesday evening at half past six. His body was brought from Toronto on Friday morning, and was received at the station by members of Galt Lodge (of which he was a member), Alma Lodge and the Waterloo Chapter of Royal Arch Masons; together with a numerous concourse of friends. As the funeral cortege slowly wended its way to Trinity Church, crowds of spectators lined the way, and on Main street the shops were closed as a mark of respect. The service of the Church of England for the burial of the dead was read by the Very Rev. the Dean of Huron, assisted by the Rector, the Rev. I. Brock; and at its conclusion, P. M. Cranston read the Masonic service with the brethren assisting in the customary solemn ceremonies. Few there were who could not join with the brethren in saying "Let us cast around his foibles, whatever they may have been, the broad mantle of a mason's charity, and let us cheerfully render to his memory, the praise to which his virtues have entitled him.1a

________________________


Brigadier-General Sir Frederick Gordon Guggisberg, KCMG, DSO, (20 July 1869 - 21 April 1930), soldier and administrator, was born in Galt, Ontario, Canada, a second-generation descendant of an immigrant from Berne, Switzerland, the eldest son of Frederick Guggisberg, retail-goods merchant, of Galt, by his wife, Dora Louisa Willson. Guggisberg published a number of works on military topics and Africa.

Moving to England about 1879, Guggisberg was educated at Burney's School, near Portsmouth ; entered the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, in 1887, and was commissioned in the Royal Engineers in 1889. He served in Singapore from 1893 to 1896, and became instructor in fortification at Woolwich in 1897, where he distinguished himself by reforming the methods and syllabus of instruction. In 1900 he published The Shop: The Story of the Royal Military Academy, and, under the pseudonym "Ubique", Modern Warfare, in 1903.

Sir Frederick Gordon GuggisbergIn 1902 Guggisberg was employed by the Colonial Office on a special survey of the Gold Coast Colony and Ashanti, and in 1905 was appointed director of surveys in that colony. In 1908 he returned to Chatham for regimental work: but in 1910 was appointed director of surveys in Southern Nigeria .

Nigeria gave him full scope for his energies and organizational skills, and he compiled The Handbook of the Southern Nigeria Survey (1911) for the guidance of his assistants. Of this work the director-general of the ordnance survey wrote: The duties of all members of the staff were strictly defined and, in particular, sensible rules were laid down as to the relations of the staff with the civil administration. Much attention was paid to the treatment of villagers; unpaid labour was forbidden; all goods bought were to be paid for at the recognized rate, and great care was to be exercised not to damage the crops... They were model instructions and the survey of Nigeria was a model survey..

On the union of Southern Nigeria and the Northern Nigeria Protectorate in 1913, Guggisberg was appointed surveyor-general of Nigeria. In 1914 he was appointed director of public works on the Gold Coast, but he rejoined the army on the outbreak of World War I . He commanded the 94th field company, Royal Engineers, from 1915 to 1916, and was in command of the Royal Engineers in the 8th division during the battle of the Somme (July 1916), and in the 66th division from November 1916. He was brigadier-general commanding the 170th infantry brigade 1917-1918, assistant-inspector-general of training, general headquarters, France, in 1918; and in command of the 100th infantry brigade in 1918. He was mentioned in dispatches five times, and was awarded the D.S.O. (1918).

Sir Frederick Gordon GuggisbergIn 1919 Guggisberg was appointed governor and commander-in-chief of the Gold Coast. There he energetically undertook works of development and extension of railways, and created the deep water harbour of Takoradi, superseding the use of surf-boats for handling traffic. In 1923 he commissioned the construction of Accra 's Korle-Bu Hospital, the finest and most modern institution of its kind in colonial Africa at the time. During his time in the Gold Coast, as during his time in Nigeria, Guggisberg was lucky to be able to benefit from the advice of the geologist Albert Ernest Kitson, who took a keen interest in developing local infrastructures.

Close association with native Africans during his survey work convinced Guggisberg that the African races are capable of eventually attaining the development levels of Europe. Toward the close of his life he wrote: "My practical experience... during the last twenty-seven years has convinced me that what individuals have achieved, in spite of ill-selected systems of education, can be achieved by the race generally, provided we alter our educational methods". In order to carry out that purpose he founded Achimota College for the training of native teachers and instructors; it was to become the largest and most complete establishment for the education of native Africans.

The aim of Guggisberg's policy was the development of the country by and for the natives rather than for the benefit of European capitalists. In 1928 Guggisberg was appointed governor and commander-in-chief of British Guiana, but owing to failing health he was obliged to leave the colony in 1929, and soon afterwards resigned the appointment. He introduced drastic administrative reforms and devoted himself energetically to the problems of maintaining and improving the system of drainage and irrigation upon which the sugar and rice cultivation of the colony depended. He also promoted immigration and peasant settlement and the development of the production and marketing of rice. These activities were cut short by his illness and resignation in 1929. He died at Bexhill-on-Sea at the age of 60.

During his last illness Guggisberg addressed to his personal friends a remarkable letter setting forth the aims which he had had in view in his administrative work in British Guiana, his confidence in divine guidance and in the spirit of Christianity, and his hope of being able to return to Africa "to try to do some more work for the African races.... As you know", he concluded, "my heart is in Africa, and I believe that away from the trammels of the Colonial Office, there is opportunity for me to do something useful both for the Empire and for the natives of Africa."

Guggisberg was a tall and athletic figure, as a young man very handsome, and always of impressive and dignified presence. His personality was attractive and inspiring. He was for some years captain of the Royal Engineers' cricket eleven, and was a fine player of polo, racquets, golf, and football . He was created C.M.G. in 1908, and K.C.M.G. in 1922, and was made a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour in 1917.

Guggisberg was twice married:

on 20 September 1895 in Trichinopoly, Madras Presidency, South India, he married Ethel Emily Hamilton Way, daughter of Colonel Wilfred FitzAlan Way, of the Northumberland Fusiliers, whom he divorced in 1904 and by whom he had three daughters

on 15 August 1905 in Staines to (Lilian) Decima Moore, the actress, daughter of Edward Henry Moore, of Brighton, county analyst. She accompanied him on his survey journeys, and their joint book, We Two in West Africa (1909), is an interesting study of a transitional phase in West African development.

In 1973 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the construction of Korle-Bu Hospital in Accra, the Ghanaian government honoured Guggisberg with the erection of a large statue, a rare tribute paid by a post-colonial government to one of its colonial governors.1a

Sir Frederick Gordon Guggisberg
 
12762 Friedrich Guggisberg (referred to as "Frederick" Guggisberg in commercial business directories) was the founder of one of Preston's earliest furniture works. Born in Uetendorf, Canton Bern, Switzerland in 1818, he came to Canada in 1834 with two older sisters and their families. In Preston, they joined two older brothers, Johann and Samuel. In 1838, Frederick started his own cabinetmaking shop, which grew from making chairs to a diversified manufacturing concern, making desks, tables and some of the first barrel type patented revolving drawer desks and high roll-top desks in Canada. The finest designs were sent to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. At one time, the Guggisberg furniture works was the largest employer in Preston. Involved in community affairs, in 1852, Frederick was a member of Preston's first village council. He is buried in the Old Preston Cemetery on Fountain Street, Cambridge.

After Guggisberg's death in 1888, his three sons took over the business and later sold out their interest. The business became the Preston Furniture Company, manufacturing office desks. This company was sold to Percy Hilborn in 1919, and became consolidated with Hilborn's Canadian Office and School Furniture Company in 1928.1a

Frederick S. Guggisberg described as the father of the furniture industry in Waterloo County. He was born in Usterdorf, Berne, Switzerland on Sep 19th, 1818. He came to Canada in 1834 following two brothers John and Samuel who had come two years earlier. John settled in Preston and Samuel Galt where he was a store keeper. Samuel's son also named Frederick operated a dry goods store called the Waterloo House at the corner of Main and Water Streets until his death in 1873.

He moved to Preston where his brother John operated a butcher shop and tavern called "The Black Bear" In 1838 he opened a small furniture shop beside the Speed River where he made chairs, tables, desks and coffins. He was a founding member of the Preston Horticultural Society. He served on Preston's first town council. He retired in 1879 turning it over to his sons who sold out in 1891, the business was later known as the Preston Furniture Co.2a

___________________________

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.4a

Death of Frederick Guggisberg, Esq., of Preston - On Wednesday morning the sad intelligence reached us that our old and genial friend, Mr. Frederick Guggisberg, had suddenly expired at his residence in Preston, and inquiry soon proved the truth of the distressing report. For some time past, while not interfering with his pursuits or the energy of his life, Mr. Guggisberg complained of severe pains at his heart, which medical men consulted, pronounced of a rheumatic nature. These pains were but transitory, and he paid but little attention to them. On Tuesday he was about the factory his usual cheery, happy self; but on Wednesday morning, shortly after breakfast, a very severe spasm occurred; he fainted, and in but a very few moments passed away.

Mr. Guggisberg was born in the village of Thun, Canton Berne, Switzerland, and came to Canada with his sister, the late Mrs. Mosser, in 1834. He entered at once as an apprentice in a Cabinet Factory in Dundas and, completing his apprenticeship, in 1938, moved to Preston, where he established himself in his business and laid the foundation of what proved wealth for himself and now one of the largest and most successful Furniture Manufactories in the Province. Mr. Guggisberg retired in favor of his sons in 1879, and has since enjoyed wisely and usefully, the competence he had earned in his well spent business life. In 1852, he was married to Miss Ernst, daughter of the late John Ernst, of Petersburg, Mrs. Guggisberg dying in 1861, leaving a family of five children, three sons, viz: - Messrs. Christian and John Guggisberg, of the Preston factory, and Mr. Walter Guggisberg, head of the firm in Galt, and two daughters, Mrs. Philip Boehmer, of Berlin, and Mrs. Allemang, of Preston.

In 1880 Mr. Guggisberg visited his native town in Switzerland, and while there was united in marriage to the estimable lady who now survives him. After a stay of over a year, they returned to Canada, again visiting Switzerland in 1884. Returning from this trip Mr. and Mrs. Guggisberg have since continuously resided at their beautiful residence in Preston. In the wider circle of friends and acquaintances of the deceased gentleman there will be none who will not regret his death. He had the peculiar faculty of making friends and keeping them. He was energetic and industrious in the pursuit of his business, and all his dealings were so pleasant, straightforward and honorable, that his customers became his friends.

His funeral will take place from the family residence at 2 o'clock on Saturday afternoon. He will be interred in Preston Cemetery.5a

The Funeral of the Late Mr. F. Guggisberg took place on Friday last on the arrival of the morning train from Toronto. The body was enclosed in a very handsome coffin which on being transferred from the car to the platform of the station was opened for a few minutes, to enable those friends who wished to take a last look at the remains. The body was then placed in the hearse and, preceded by the members of the Masonic Lodges, and followed by a very large concourse of mourners, the cortege proceeded slowly through the streets to Trinity Church, where the services for the dead were read by Dean Boomer and the Rev. Isaac Brock, pastor of the Church From thence the cortege proceeded to Trinity Church Cemetery, where the body was lowered into the grave and where the peculiar and imposing ceremonies of the Masonic Body were performed. The closing services of the English Church were then read, and the last token of respect had been paid to all that was mortal of our old friend. As a token of respect, the stores in town were all closed while the funeral procession passed through the street.6a

12764 Melancholy Suicide

It is our painful duty this week, to record a very sad occurrence that took place in the Gaol, in this town, by which an erring mortal hurried himself into an awful eternity, with his own hand. The unfortunate man, named Samuel Guggesberg, said to be respectably connected, and a resident of the township of Blenheim having. been arrested for debt of fifty dollars and committed to Gaol about three weeks ago, was discovered by the Gaoler, on Friday last, in the passage leading to his night room, laying on his back, in a pool of blood with his throat cut. An inquest was held on view of the body the same evening, Dr. Turquand Coroner, and the jury, failed to lead them to a definite conclusion, as to the cause which led to the perpetration of the deed The following is the evidence on the case: Mr. Cummings, Gaoler, sworn stated that he saw the deceased about 4 o'clock, and subsequently about 8 o'clock in the morning; apparently quite well; the deceased then told witness he wanted breakfast of bread and beef witness ordered the servant girl to get breakfast for the deceased, and then went down to the town on his return, nearly 12 o'clock went to see he deceased about some notes he had two days before, spoken of giving witness for his board when they have the means on entering they day-room he did not see deceased, but a saw the remains of his breakfast on the table, a German bible lying open, and his pipe beside it the boots he had on in the morning, were standing of at one side of the room witness went towards the night-room, and found him lying on his back, on the, floor of the passage, in the midst of blood with his throat cut, and immediately judged he had cut his throat with his own hand went and called his man, Charles Bush, to came in, as Guggesberg had cut his throat the man came and examined, as did also the Sheriff and Clerk of the Peace, a razor, all over blood, was found on the window sill, over where deceased lay. In answer to questions by jurors could not say he was crazy, Mr. Muma, in company with Mr. Ball the lawyer, call to see him yesterday after which he told witness, he was afraid Muma wanted to keep him Gaol he appeared very much afraid and said he had a great many enemies - he had been confined in Gaol about three weeks, but without looking at his book, could not tell exactly he complained being sick last week got medicine from the doctor for him he had the razor about a week debtors generally bring their own kit with them the razor belonged to the debtor's room he asked for a looking glass this morning to shave himself witness asked him if he slept last night, he replied, he did previous to Monday last, rest was broken gave him a glass of hot grog, with sixty drops of laudanum by the doctor's orders he had a vial of medicine besides, to be given him occasionally, until sleep would be produced, as was the case, on Monday night last, and has since rested well gave him no medicine these two days past, as sleep was produced gave him in all, since Monday 1st, two glasses of raw grain whiskey none since yesterday morning gave none with the doctor's order from his manner and the way he talked, witness thought that he was laboring under an indisposition of mind.

Charles Bush, Sworn, saw deceased lying dead in the manner described by Mr. Cummings was not acquainted with him only saw him once at the hole of the door did not know that he was crazy believes he cut his own throat no doubt about it.

Bridge Grace, Sworn went into the room where Guggesberg usually ate his victuals, this morning, with his breakfast Guggesberg was standing near the window he did not speak went out and saw him, through the hole in the door, going to eat his breakfast, which consisted of potatoes, meat, bread, butter, and two eggs and tea he did not appear sick, saw nothing unusual about him saw him again in the position he was found by Mr. Cummings believes he killed himself, has no doubt about it was in the habit of taking his meals to him. One evening, last week, he appeared not to speak plain, merely whispered and witness did not understand what he said - though he was not right thought he was delirious this morning he looked rather downcast he was not in the habit of speaking much made no noise in his room was always quiet.

The Coroner, who is the Gaol Surgeon, stated that when call upon to see Guggesberg, he found him feverish and depressed in mind; on Sunday last he was poorly, and from appearances he was apprehensive that the deceased was threatened with an attack of delirium tremens; understood from him that a month ago he had been on "a great spree;" in answer to inquiry, deceased told him, the Coroner, that he had had delirium tremens before; in consequence, advised for him and prescribed some medicine, and a portion of laudanum in a little grog, in order to produce sleep and prevent delirium coming on; the Gaoler on Monday, had learned that deceased had slept and was better; and that he, the Gaoler, had discontinued to give the medicine as the prisoner's rest was good, of which course he, the Coroner, approved. The Jury upon the above evidence unanimously agreed on the following verdict: -

"The the deceased Samuel Guggesberg, a prisoner for debt in the Gaol of the County of Oxford, came to his death by cutting his own throat with a razor, which laboring under an extreme depression of spirits"1a

12788 WARD, Annie Dodds Guthrie (Nan) - On Saturday, September 6, 2008, at Cambridge Memorial Hospital, in her 92nd year. Nan was born on October 19, 1916 in Galashiels, Scotland, to William and Elizabeth (Jackson) Guthrie. She worked as a young girl in the family fish and chip shops and bakeries. Her excellence in traditional Scottish dancing led to an invitation to join the famous "Border Maidens". Following the death of her oldest brother, Ray, the family emigrated in 1927 and settled in Guelph. Nan was a quick student and finished her grade 12 at Guelph Collegiate Institute at the age of 15. She then took Special Commercial because one needed to be 16 years old before leaving school. In 1932, the family moved to Galt, and her father opened up a new bakery business on Main Street. That year she met the opposition bakery's eldest son, John James Ward (Jack). They married in 1937 and refurbished an old cottage/chicken house on the West River Road. While Jack was overseas during the Second World War, Nan supervised the shipping department at Canadian General Tower. Upon his return, she left the business world and devoted her considerable talents and energy to her family and her husband's newly formed partnership with his brother Fred, the Home Maintenance Company, that later became Ward Brothers' Specialties. Volleyball was a passion, and Nan played twice a week at the YMCA until her mid seventies. She also shared a love of swimming with Jack and continued her aquatic exercises in the St. Luke's pool until the age of 91. Their retirement years were enriched with trips to Britain and Israel and numerous camping excursions, including every province in Canada and many of the United States. Nan nursed and cared for her mother for seven years and supported her beloved Jack through a long illness until his death in 1984. Throughout her life, her family was paramount. She selflessly dedicated her time and prayers to her extended family. She was predeceased by her parents and by her two brothers, Andrew (Ray) and Alexander (Gordon). Lovingly remembered by her son, Jack and his wife Joyce (Kohli) and their children, Gwen Armshaw (Dave), Jamie (Belinda), Amy Worth (Jeff) and Robin Knight (Thomas); her daughter, Linda Purdy and her daughters, Janet Purdy and Laura McCullough (Scott); and 13 great- grandchildren, Eric and Edward Armshaw; Aedan, Colm, and Rory Ward; Bronwen, Madelyn, Piper and Rowen Knight; Garrett and Laura Ward Worth; and Gavin and Rachel McCullough.

12808 In 1882 Edward Roos bought the lot which Charlton and Hurst now own and on the front portion now torn down, built a barn with dwelling above which his family occupied for years; and in rear of this barn he built a stable to hold about twenty horses. In addition to the driving horses kept for hire, Mr. Roos kept a cab which he turned out at weddings, etc. behind a fine well-dressed, well-groomed pair of horses driven by a man equipped always with a silk hat. He had a carryall for summer use, which the ball team hired to make their out-of-town trips, picnic parties hired to go to the lake, etc. and for winter he had his pleasure sleigh which accommodated a goodly number out for a sleigh ride.

He always kept a couple of teams for hauling sand, stone, gravel and coal from the Grand Trunk to the Lower Mill, for movings and the rest of it, and taken together, Ed's revenues were sufficient to make him some money. As far as his single rigs were concerned one had to speak a week or two ahead to be sure of one to take the girl friend to some big dance, to the Aberfoyle Show, or other soul-stirring such-like events.

Ed. Roos sold out to William O. Vanatter in 1893 and embarked in the Hotel business at St. George. In 1898 Van. sold out to Henry Sachs and Alex Roos who conducted the business under style: "Sachs & Roos" and they in turn sold about 1909 to Charles Haas, V.S., and John Sudden who carried on as "Haas and Sudden" until Dr. Haas left not long afterwards; and John Sudden continued for several years and then disposed of the property to Len. Evans and went to Galt.2a

12811 The Haas - Pemberton House at 45 Young Street was saved from demolition in 1973 when it was purchased from Dominion Life Assurance by the parents of the present owners. Dominion Life Assurance had been assembling houses in the area to build several large apartment buildings, similar to the building directly behind 45 Young Street (see Waterloo Chronicle October 3, 1973).
The first owner of the house in 1904 was Herman Haas, who lived in the house until 1955. His wife Estella Ludwig Haas continued to live there until 1970 when it was sold to Dominion Life. The Pemberton's bought the house in 1973, altering the house by extending the third floor gable and increasing the size of the third floor. They also renovated the kitchen and bathrooms. No other renovations have been made and the house retains its original porches, gingerbread, and stained glass arched windows.
The house was built in the Queen Anne style from clay bricks likely made at the brickyard at University Avenue at the tracks. The foundation was built of fieldstone1a

12827 December 29th, 1863, the new roll book was presented, and, having been recently purged, contained 288 names. This is a feature of the life of this congregation that is worthy of that emphasis that gives prominence, namely, the annual purging of the church roll. That has been, all along, faithfully done. It has not been suffered to fall into a worthless assemblage of names, of many of whom no good account could be given. A church roll, if not carefully watched, soon becomes untrustworthy. The movement of people in this new land is so great, and some times, too, they are si fickle and restless, that change seems to be essential to their life. But while that is the case, usually the strong-minded and valuable members have continuance and abide. They are firm as a rock, and support the cause with which they are identified.
About this time a movement was made for additions to the Eldership, and at successive meetings all the proper steps were taken. A list of seven names was chosen, of which only one could be induced to accept the office, namely, Mr. John Habbick. Mr. John Goldie was at this, as at other times, chosen to serve in this office, but always " he expressed a decided refusal to the acceptance of the office of Elder."1a
