12020 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

12031 Give us your rapt attention
Oh maidens fancy free,
Here are the Leap Year Chances
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.

Ed Anderson, happy as can be,
For him a girl should try
Just put your cake upon the shelf
You'll get him by and by.

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

York and Arthur Nahrgang
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,
I'm sure that it will pay.

Clarence Graham and Joe Brenneman,
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
The "Bachelors" of the neighbourhood
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
.1a

12044 Give us your rapt attention
Oh maidens fancy free,
Here are the Leap Year Chances
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.

Ed Anderson, happy as can be,
For him a girl should try
Just put your cake upon the shelf
You'll get him by and by.

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

York and Arthur Nahrgang
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,
I'm sure that it will pay.

Clarence Graham and Joe Brenneman,
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
The "Bachelors" of the neighbourhood
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
.1a

12058 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

12067 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

12069 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

2aBerlin Daily Telegraph, Mar 26th 1910

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

12070 Passing of Alexander Gray - In the death of Mr. Alexander Gray, which occurred on Feb 24, Greenfield loses one of its oldest and most highly esteemed residents - a man of whom it can be truly said the community was the better for his having lived in it. Mr. Gray had attained his 68th year, 41 of which were spent in Greenfield, where, up to 15 years ago, he followed the occupation of a cooper and had since been engaged in farming. He was born in Ireland and came to Canada with his parents at the age of about six months, settling at Waterdown and later at Greenfield. Some 40 years ago he married Sarah Ann McCall, who survives. In politics Mr. Gray was a staunch Liberal of the old school, and in religion a Methodist of a practical character. He attended the services in Ayr regularly and for some years was the efficient superintendent of the Sabbath School, discharging his duties with credit to himself and benefit to the classes assembled. The family comprises two sons and two daughters, viz., Norman M., Edward, Mrs. Walter Scott, and Miss Maud Gray, all of whom reside at Greenfield. The funeral took place on Friday afternoon, when interment was made in the Ayr Cemetery, Rev. E.S. Hiscocks conducting the services. The pallbearers were Messrs. Wm. Patterson, geo. Smye, Henry Elliott, John Myers, J.W. Hunt and John J. Hodgson.

12096 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

12107 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

12147 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

12157 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. He is also an adherent of the Presbyterian Church, and a Liberal in politics.2a

12159 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

About the turn of the century R. B. Keeler and Son opened a repair shop and jewellery store at the west end of Glick's Block and carried on some years. Charlie Grill returned from Aylmer and bought the business and he sold out to Frank Calvert. Mr. Calvert operated successfully and then moved to one of the far western States where he did a huge business and when he left he sold out to Fred Gunther who came here from Dundas in the year 1928 and continued until he passed on in 1946.

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

12164 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

12174 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.

Amos M. Groff
 
12199 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

12267 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

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

12298 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

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.

12316 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.

_________________________

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

12384 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

12386 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.

Upon his arrival in Canada Frederick S. first settled in Dundas where he worked 1 year in a cabinet ship completing his training. 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

12388 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

12412 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. She is also survived by nieces and nephews, Marilyn Schaus (Guthrie), Nan Makcrow (Guthrie), Peter Guthrie, Gail Ryan (Guthrie), Elizabeth Forsythe (Guthrie), Wayne Ward, Sandra Ward, Carm Demarte, Paul Demarte, Jan Coelho (Demarte), Nancy Young (Rosenberg), Grieg Rosenberg, and Melanie Robertson (Rosenberg). A memorial service will take place at St. Luke's Auditorium on Saturday, September 13, 2008, at 2 p.m. Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Lounsbury Funeral Home, Cambridge. Condolences/donations/directions www.lounsburyfuneralhome.com (519) 658-9366.1a

12429 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

12432 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

12448 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.

12477 Albert Hackbart of Near Linwood Passed Away Tuesday Fumes From Gasoline Started Fire

DRIVING SHED BURNED TO GROUND

Albert Hackbart, a well known and highly respected farmer, residing seven miles west of Linwood, passed away at nine o'clock Tuesday morning as a result of burns received when the fumes from gasoline caught fire, causing an explosion in the driving shed on his farm on Thursday night. Deceased, who was severely burned about the legs and back suffered excruciating pain and in spite of the best of nursing and medical attention, poisoning set in and the unfortunate man passed away, being conscious practically to the end.
The late Mr. Hackbart, who has done considerable threshing for farmers in the district, was engaged pouring gasoline from a large can into a smaller one in order to have it ready for next day's threshing operations. His seven year old daughter, Marie, was standing nearby holding a lantern and it is believed the fumes of the gasoline coming in contact with the lantern caused the gasoline to explode. The clothes of Mr. Hackbart caught fire immediately. His wife rushed to his aid from the house with a blanket and wrapped it about him but not before he was severely burned. The little girl escaped with severe burns to her hands and face. The driving shed caught fire and was burned to the ground, along with the contents which included a wagon, tractor, chopper and automobile.

The late Mr. Hackbart was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hackbart of near Bamberg, and was aged 37 years. About fourteen years ago he married Miss Marian Zinkan, of Heidelberg, who survives with a family of seven children, namely, Carl, Frieda, Margaret, Marie, Alfred, Herbert and Kenneth. The parents, four brothers, Edwin, Oscar, Harvey and Nelson, and two sisters, Clara, (Mrs. Emil Schneider), and Olga (Mrs. Lorne Schmidt), also survive.

The heartfelt sympathy of the whole community is extended to the bereaved family.
The funeral will take place on Friday afternoon from the home of the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hackbart, to the Heidelberg Lutheran Church and cemetery for interment.

Friends and colleagues recall contributions of Ron Hackett
Former Wellesley councillor and busy community volunteer passed away just before Christmas at the age of 80


Former Wellesley Township councillor, dedicated volunteer and community supporter Ron Hackett passed away on Dec. 23. He was 80.

Hackett served three terms on Wellesley council representing Hawkesville before retiring in 2006. While he retired from politics, he certainly wasn't absent in the community. He previously served as the chair of the Wellesley Township Heritage and Historical Society, as well as with the Wellesley Horticultural Society, the Local Architectural Conservancy Advisory Committee, Kiwanis Transit, the Hawkesville Community Centre board and the Hawkesville Cemetery board.

His love of sports was evidenced by his commitment to the Elmira Sugar Kings as a volunteer as well as serving as a director for many years. At home games you'd often see him selling apple cider or ice cream sundaes.

Former Wellesley mayor Ross Kelterborn remembers his fellow councillor and friend fondly.

"He really represented his area and the people really well. He was a true township councillor, not only did he look after his people in his ward very well but his interests were for the betterment of the township and the region as a whole," Kelterborn said.

He notes Hackett always did his research on issues discussed at council and was adamant about getting all the facts before he made up his mind. Once he made up his mind though, that was it.

"You couldn't have got a person that was more committed to doing for the people of the township what he did. He even used to attend regional council meetings, especially when the LRT was going on to express his opinion," Kelterborn said.

He was also known as the go-to guy around town when looking for information about nearly anything in the township, which is not surprising given the variety of groups and committees he volunteered for.

"He was very influential in bringing the information to people that it was necessary for and I think of Chervin Woodworks for an example. They were looking for a place to develop anywhere and he drew them to Hawkesville. I need not say any more about the success of that particular situation," Kelterborn said.

Kelterborn recalls Hackett attempted to develop a plan for Hawkesville to include sewers so it could have become a larger, more developed area. It wasn't successful, but the effort was there.

"He was a good guy. You were lucky to have him as a friend," Kelterborn said.

Current township Mayor Joe Nowak also served on council with Hackett over a decade ago when Nowak was a councillor.

"He certainly always knew his file and I think he worked very hard. He always had the well being of the community at heart, that was his nature. He was particularly strong with his interest in the historical aspect of the community," Nowak said.

He notes he had a lot of respect for the way he treated people and the way he dealt with the issues presented to council.

"I know he was well appreciated in Hawkesville. He was always there for the people," Nowak said.

Sugar Kings president Dave O'Donoghue recalls Hackett was always the first one to volunteer to help out, regardless of the task.

"More than that, though, he was an idea generator, always looking for new ways to help us raise the money needed to run the team. With Ron, though, it wasn't just about raising money, he wanted to do it in ways that would help the community, contributed to a strong partnership with the township and ways that helped provide a better fan experience," O'Donoghue said.

Hackett played a large role in the Kings' annual charity jersey auctions, always approaching council to assist with ice and rental fees for the day. He also was the driving force in changing it from a silent auction to a live auction. Both of those efforts resulted in higher proceeds. He also helped with the Home and Garden Expo and took it upon himself to bring ice cream sundaes to the home games, like he had seen other teams do. O'Donoghue says his contributions didn't go unnoticed by the team.

Kelterborn retrieves the program from Hackett's funeral, which was held in December, and reads a line from it aloud.

"'Well done, a good and thankful servant.' I thought that summed it all up for Ron. I lost a good friend," Kelterborn said, his voice breaking.

John Haddow was born c 1807, Newton-on-Ayr, and Agnes in 1808, 10 July, Ochiltree. Family stories say that Agnes had been married previously to a Captain Ramsay of the British Navy, and that he was buried at sea in the Mediterranean, but so far no record has been found in British Admiralty Records to support this fact.

Was John a brother of Robert Haddow who came to Canada in 1841? His tombstone says Native of Ayrshire, Scotland and he was born 1811. There is some connection with this family as we have pictures of several Haddows including Mungo, William - who could be the one that died at age 21.

For forty years he was the efficient accountant in the office of the Waterloo Mutual Fire Insurance Co., retiring about 32 years ago. For over forty years he was the treasurer of Germania Lodge No. 184, IOOF. Perhaps his greatest interest was that of the Waterloo Public Library, being a valued member and secretary for over a half century. He retained his interest up to the time of his death being a great lover of books. He was also a lover of music and continued his interest in the Waterloo Musical Society since its organization. He was a member of St. John's Lutheran Church.

Mr. Haehnel had the distinction of being the second charter member of the Germania Lodge, founded in 1876. He was present at the 60th anniversary held three years ago. In 1935 Mr. and Mrs. Haehnel celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary. His beloved wife passed away three years ago. Mr. Haehnel was of a genial disposition and until a few days before his death, alert of mind, and keenly interested in local and world events. He was a lover of his garden and flowers and gave it his personal attention until his accident in 1936.

Surviving are two children Floral, Mrs. Harry Glinz, of Detroit, Alfred G. Haehnel, Waterloo druggist, six grandchildren and one great grandchild. One son, Nelson, accountant of Toronto, died many years ago.

12510 CHARLES KAPPLER HAGEDORN.

Various commercial and manufacturing interests contribute to the material growth and development of Berlin, including the Berlin Suspender & Button Company, of which Charles Kappler Hagedorn is the head. His life record began on the 5th of February, 1859, in the township of Waterloo, five miles south of Berlin, his parents being Ernest A. P. and Maria (Kappler) Hagedorn, the former a native of Hanover, Germany, and the latter of Bavaria. Ernest Hagedorn was but twelve years of age when he came to Ontario, having previously been left an orphan by the death of his parents. In 1831 he became a resident of Waterloo county, where he worked at farm labor and when his diligence and economy made possible the purchase of land he began farming on his own account and continued in that line of activity until his death, which occurred in 1875, when he was fifty six years of age. He was one of the early settlers, clearing the home farm of one hundred acres from the bush and meeting with all of the usual experiences, hardships and privations of pioneer life. He persevered in his labor, however, and aided in reclaiming a wild region for the purposes of civilization. His place was on the Bechtel tract near the village of Williamsburg, about five miles south of Berlin. For many years Mr. Hagedorn served as school trustee of his district.

Charles K. Hagedorn was reared to farm life, early becoming familiar with the duties and labors that fall to the lot of the agriculturist. He attended the public schools at Williamsburg, completing his studies when eighteen years of age, and in the fall of 1877 he began teaching school, continuing in that profession until 1884. He afterward turned his attention to merchandising as a traveling salesman throughout the province and was thus engaged until 1889, when he began the manufacture of suspenders and buttons in connection with J. R. Stouffer under the name of the J. R. Stouffer Company, Limited. They carried on business until 1895, when they dissolved partnership. Mr. Hagedorn then formed the Berlin Suspender & Button Company and under this name has since carried on business. In 1900 he erected the present plant on King street East, a brick building two storey and basement, forty by eighty feet. Here he employs thirty-five operatives in the manufacture of buttons and suspenders, which are sold to the trade throughout the Dominion. He has built up an excellent reputation for the quality of his goods and reliability in business affairs and is meeting with a measure of success which is the merited reward of his enterprise and labor.

Mr. Hagedorn has served as a member of the Berlin municipal council. He was chairman of the original commission which succeeded in taking over and rebuilding the present electric light and gas plant under municipal ownership. He likewise belongs to the Board of Trade and has served for two years as its president. Previous to this time the organization had had but little or no force, but during his presidency it was developed into a very influential institution, having marked effect on the public life of the town, Mr. Hagedorn being the moving spirit in bringing about this change. In 1889 occurred the marriage of the subject of this review and Miss Emily Cairnes, a daughter of John Cairnes of Berlin, who was one of the pioneers of North Easthope. They have three children : Lloyd Elmo, Grover Cairnes and Edna Aleen. The family attend the services of the Presbyterian Church, of which Mr. Hagedorn is a member. He votes with the Reform party and belongs to the Ancient Order of United Workmen, the Ancient Order of Foresters and the Woodmen of the World. In business affairs he displays promptness and notable reliability, meeting every obli- gation that devolves upon him and keeping in touch with the trend of modern progress.2a

12528 Aaron B. Hagey

Following a paralytic stroke which he suffered last Tuesday when visiting his daughter in Kitchener. While on his way home, he was found unconscious and removed to the hospital where he was identified. Little hope was held out for his recovery. The late Mr. Hagey was born near Washington, Ontario. He resided in Innerkip and near Breslau, and later moved to Blair, where he has resided for the past 17 years. Widely known throughout the province and especially in Waterloo and Oxford Counties where he made many friends, he was of a very congenial disposition, and always took an active interest in the furtherance of community enterprise. Mr. Hagey was known as a farmer of real ability at which his lifetime was spent. He was a keen follower of sport. Besides being a director of the Waterloo Township Plowmen's Association, Mr. Hagey was an ex-trustee of the Blair cemetery board and of the Blair Union Sunday school. He was instrumental in assuring the Blair cemetery a perpetual upkeep fund and was largely responsible for the success of the drive for funds. He was poetically inclined and several poems of widespread interest were written by the deceased. In politics he was a staunch Conservative. Although he was an adherent of the United Church, he attended the Preston Gospel Tabernacle1a

12535 From an email from Allan Detweiler 9 Sep 2007 to Darryl Bonk

Hello Darryl,

Back in 2005 an article appeared in the Record about the old cemetery located in Cambridge behind the OPP station. You are mentioned in that article. You will also be aware of the article in Canadian German Folklore about this cemetery. In that book, it mentions that the grave of Catharine Clemens still stands there. Here's the rest of the story. I was part of a tour that visited that site, and I was upset by the fact that the section of this property next to the car repair place was not being kept up, and in fact was a dumping ground for old car parts. In among the car parts was the fallen over gravestone of Catharine Clemens. I felt strongly that Catharines grave should be moved to Wanner Cemetery like others previously on that site. So, I started digging where I thought the grave might be located. I dug down a bout 3 feet, and thought I saw signs the soil had been disturbed at one time. I then called the Region archeology department, and Scarlett Janusus (sp??) [Scarlett Janusas] came out to see what I had done. She gave me proper hell, but after probing around with her hand tools, declared this was not the precise location of Catharines burial. I had also spoken with the person that looked after the Wanner Cemetery, Russel Sheerer, and not too long after, he informed me he had removed the gravestone, and erected it at the Wanner Cemetery.

So, Catherine remains interred at the old cemetery, but her marker is at Wanner. If you are interested, I can show you where the stone was removed from, but because it was fallen over, there was no way of knowing precisely where Catherine was interred

_____________________________

One who will soon be classed among the old settlers of Preston is Christopher Kress, who by his energy and pluck has accumulated considerable property and who has greatly aided in giving Preston a good name as a desirable place of resort for the cure of rheumatism and kindred diseases, through its mineral baths.

The mineral springs were struck by one Peter Erb while boring for salt in 1838, which he never obtained. He placed no value in the sulphur water he had so struck. After abandoning boring, the water of the spring was employed for driving an overshot wheel of a wagon making shop, occupied by one Daniel Hagey, until Mr. Samuel Cornell obtained from Mr. Joseph Erb sufficient land near the spring to erect an hotel. Mr. Cornell with great energy built suitable premises and a bath house with boiler to enable him to furnish hot and cold baths.. His undertaking proved successful but death terminated his career. The property was sold and Christopher Kress became its owner. He greatly enlarged, improved and ornamented it and the invalids who have sought and obtained relief at the Preston mineral baths count by the hundreds.2a

12561 JOHN (JACK) HAGEY

Jack Hagey was born into a family of achievers, people well used to the public limelight. How difficult then for this reserved and unassuming man to create a life that would become both deeply influenced by them, yet separate. He needed to find his own path. Jack's father, J. Gerald Hagey, was founding president of the University of Waterloo, a visionary who developed the country's first co-op university program.

Jack's mother, Minota, was also an influential community member and there is a university residence named in her honour. Her father, William Weichel, was a member of provincial Parliament. 'In his own quiet way, he was quite the opposite of his father,' said Jack's wife, Barbara, of her unfailingly private husband. Jack was also honest, a kind man who preferred the relative obscurity of his accountancy practice to public life.

Sister Anne Rektor, a Catholic nun, met Jack by happenstance in a parking lot one day when he was there with a mutual acquaintance. The two were introduced and there was an immediate rapport. As he worked his way through two years of cancer, Sister Anne helped him cope, though he wasn't Catholic. She laughs as she recalls how she referred to herself as 'Jack's nun.'

'He had a faith that was simple, singular and adherent,' she said. 'He lived his life so quietly.' She also remembered his humility, how he never boasted about his family background. Jack, the youngest of two boys, completed an undergraduate degree at Waterloo College, now part of Wilfrid Laurier University. He initially thought about a high school teaching career, but daughter Laura recalled that her father feared his small stature and boyish looks would make it difficult to gain the student's respect.

He instead joined an accounting firm and completed his certified accountancy program, eventually entering a partnership. A man who preferred routine, Jack was a creature of habit and a logical thinker. He was also a man who thrived on work. 'He worked until he was 72, until he was diagnosed (with cancer),' said Laura.
His devotion to the job paid off in professional and financial success, but Jack never desired the fancy cars or homes.

Everything about him was modest. He just wanted to do well enough to care for his family, to leave them a healthy legacy. Laura describes her father as a people person, someone who liked to please others and would never offend. She didn't see him angry, never heard him swear.

Jack and Barbara met on a blind date and though they hit it off, it would be a few years before Barbara completed her nursing training and returned from one year of working in Western Canada. They eventually grew serious and five years after first meeting, married Sept. 9, 1960, having two daughters, Laura and Margie.

'As a dad, we had a lot of fun together,' said Laura, a self-confessed tomboy who rode with her dad on his motorcycle, fished in ponds and convinced him to buy her boy's skates after her mother signed her up for figure skating.

He was also an incurable 'gadget guy,' always looking forward to the next Canadian National Exhibition where he'd get the latest doodad. Laura said he'd play around with it then it would be relegated to a closet somewhere while he eagerly anticipated the next gadget.

Jack also enjoyed the racetrack, Woodbine and Elmira, and he liked the casino, though he wasn't much of a gambler. Perhaps it was the excitement he was drawn to, something he avoided in his daily life.
Laura said her dad wasn't the overtly emotional type.

'He was really a down-to-earth kind of man' but there was never any question he loved his family.
Diagnosed with lung cancer in April 2005, doctors predicted he had one year but Jack managed to steal a second year through sheer determination and alternative remedies. He was practical, but also open minded.

Sister Anne concluded her friend Jack was unique, someone who appreciated the 'tiniest little kindness' anyone did for him.

Jack Hagey leaves behind his wife Barbara, daughters Laura and Margie and three grandchildren.1a

12567 Bishop Joseph Hagey, " the second son of Daniel and Elizabeth (Bergey) Hagey, was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, June 11th, 1810, and came to Canada with his parents when twelve years of age. Some time during the summer of 1832 he was married to Sophia, daughter of Samuel and Rebecca (Eby) Bricker. She was born December 20th, 1812. Soon after their marriage they moved on the farm now possessed by their son, Joseph B., where they resided until his death which took place December 31st, 1876. On May 31st, 1851, he was ordained as a minister of the Mennonite body, and on October 11th, 1852, he was ordained bishop which position he held until his death. He was well received by both his and other denominations. His fame as a preacher was widely known and served to fill the houses of worship to their utmost capacity wherever he was known to officiate. His sermons were short and always well seasoned with a grand exhortation to be more like our Lord and Master. He was greatly respected by the young and always gladly received by his many friends. His last days on earth were much clouded with the church controversy which was carried so far as to cause a division among the Mennonites. Just at this time came the winged arrow of death and bore the soul of Bishop Hagey from the scenes of his life's activity, from the companionship of his faithful circle of followers, and from the worrying of this world, to the regions beyond the skies where trials and temptations are no more, where Christ reigns supreme, in Heaven. His last words were, 'O what a good and merciful Lord we have'. His end was peace. His widow is still living and has her home with her daughter, Mary. Their family consists of eleven children"1a

Hagey, Joseph B. (1810-1876)

"Joseph B. Hagey: bishop and farmer; born 11 June 1810 in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania to Daniel and Elizabeth (Bergey) Hagey. He and his twin brother, Daniel, had an older brother, and a younger brother and sister. In 1832 he married Sophia Bricker (20 December 1810-4 November 1895). She was the daughter of Sam Bricker, famous for his role in raising funds in Pennsylvania to buy the German Company Tract (much of Waterloo Township) from Richard Beasley. Joseph and Sophia Hagey had six sons and five daughters. Joseph died 31 December 1876 and was buried in the Breslau Mennonite Cemetery. It was said that three hundred carriages were part of the funeral procession, with one thousand persons in attendance at the service.

In 1822 Joseph Hagey came with his family from Pennsylvania after his father went bankrupt in business there. They lived on a farm just north of Cambridge (Preston). After their marriage, Joseph and Sophia lived on the farm owned by her father; they became the owners in 1837.
On 10 February 1839 Joseph Hagey was ordained as a minister, probably by Benjamin Eby , and on 31 May 1851 he was ordained as a bishop to assist the aging Eby. He served in the Hagey congregation as a pastor, but as a bishop carried responsibility for all the congregations in Waterloo Township. His years of service followed those of a very charismatic bishop, and Hagey never received the acclaim of his predecessor. In his later years he was faced with division within the Ontario Mennonite Conference. The division was sparked by a revival in Solomon Eby's congregation in Port Elgin, Ontario in 1870, and a similar revival within Waterloo County. These Methodist-style prayer/revival meetings were often held in homes, and were not yet generally accepted within the Mennonite community. Initially Hagey responded positively and baptized converts from the Port Elgin revival. However he then declined to baptize the Waterloo converts because of objections that arose within the conference leadership. Although another bishop finally baptized this group in 1871, the controversy festered and finally resulted in the division that created the Reformed Mennonites (later part of the Mennonite Brethren in Christ ).
Although Hagey was not successful in maintaining peace in the Ontario Mennonite community, he was a peacemaker in spirit. He assisted several attempts to help settle a church conflict in Indiana as a participant and served as the nominal leader (as bishop) of an Ontario delegation that attempted to mediate the conflict. Joseph B. Hagey was a longtime leader in the largest Mennonite settlement in Ontario during troubled times; his failure to preserve unity does not diminish the magnitude of his service to the church."2a

Breslau (Cressman) Mennonite Church

Services were begun in Breslau in 1815. In 1834, Benjamin Eby's log meeting house, which had been built in Berlin in 1813, was moved to Breslau to the Cressman farm. Preaching services which were held every four weeks began in the reconstructed meeting house in 1837. A new brick church was built in 1856, at which time the old log meeting house was moved to Frederick Schaefer's brickyard. The old building may have been used for storage or an office until approximately 1880 when it was clad with white "Breslau Brick" from the brickyard, and used as a home by Frederick Schaefer and his family. The address of the house is reported to have been 18 Woolwich Street; it was still standing in 1985, according to Alder 1985, with the original log walls possibly preserved within the brick ones.
A summer Sunday School was begun in June of 1872. It was held in the Breslau schoolhouse until 1877 when it was moved to the church. Sunday School continued on in the summers only until 1889 when Sunday School classes began to be held all year.
The 1856 white brick church was taken down in March 1908, and was replaced with a new white brick church. In 1968 the name of the church was changed from Cressman Mennonite Church to Breslau Mennonite Church. Major renovations were made to the church in the same year. It is of interest to know that land amounting to approximately three acres was deeded to the congregation by Christian C. Snyder in three parcels, in 1837, 1859, and 1870.
Joseph Hagey, the first minister at Cressman's, was ordained on February 10, 1839. He was ordained bishop in 1851. Ministers who followed him in serving the church at Breslau were Jacob Woolner Sr., Elias Weber, Isaac A. Wambold, Jacob S. Woolner, and Oscar Burkholder. Services were held every four weeks from 1837-1867, and bi-weekly from 1867-1894 when weekly services were begun3a

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..4a

Preston (Bechtel or Hagey) Mennonite Church

The second meeting house in Waterloo County was built, probably in 1814, by John Erb, a wealthy miller of Preston. This brick meeting house served as a community church and was located "near Jacob Hagey's", which was on the road running from the top of the Kress Hill west and "adjoining the Kitchener Highway" (Witmer 1967:26). Another meeting house, known as the Union Meeting House, was built in the area around 1824. A meeting was held in the Union church on November 20, 1824 to commence recording the accounts of the congregation in Hagey's Deacon Book. The deed of land for the Union Meeting House and burial ground, which was for one acre of part Lot 22, Beasley's Broken Front, was transacted in 1835.
Hagey Meeting House was buiilt of red brick in 1842 on part Lot 23, just north of Preston on the west side of the Breslau Road, and slightly north of the Union Meeting House site. The deed, dated February 2, 1842, recorded the purchase of the land from John Hilborn and stressed that the property was to be for "the purpose of public worship by the Mennonist Society" (Witmer 1967:28). Joseph Bechtel was the first minister in the area, from 1804-1837; he was followed by David Sherk (1838-1843). Next came Joseph Hagey (1844-1877), who was ordained bishop in 1851, and then Jacob B. Gingrich from 1878 to 1901. Services were held every four weeks until 1890 when bi-weekly services were begun. A Sunday School was established in 1842 with the congregation of Wanner Meeting House near Hespeler, but it was discontinued because of a difference of opinion regarding the need for Sunday Schools. On April 26, 1891 a Sunday School was organized at Hagey's, with deacon Abraham Oberholtzer as superintendent. Five years later, on June 10, 1896, a Sunday School was organized at the Wanner church.
Major changes were made to the church building in 1927-1928 when the basement was excavated, new windows were installed and the roof was raised two feet. Fire on January 15, 1950 caused extensive damage to the interior and furnishings of the church. The building was completely renovated and also enlarged at the same time; dedication was on July 2, 1950. Another fire, on Feburary 19, 1953, completely destroyed the church. A congregational decision was made to build a new church, on Concession Road in Preston, and the cornerstone was laid on Thanksgiving Day, October 12, 1953. Official dedication services in the new Preston Mennonite Church were held on May 16, 1954. The building was enlarged in the summer of 1989.5a

LARGE FUNERAL AT BRESLAU - On Tuesday of last week the funeral of the late Joseph Hagey, Bishop of the Mennonite Church at Breslau, took place, and was the largest ever held in that section, over three hundred teams being in the procession, and over one thousand people present, thereby testifying to the great respect entertained by all for the deceased. Mr. Hagey at the time of his death, must have been nearly eighty years old (ed. note actually 66), and for many years was recognized as the head of that body in Western Ontario. He was always distinguished for his Christian virtues, and was held in high esteem by the members of his own church and by all who knew him.6a

12579 WELL KNOWN DENTIST DIES SUDDENLY

Dr. Hagey Seized With Heart Attack at Kitchener— Prominent Preston Citizen.

One of Preston's most popular and highly regarded citizens, in the person of Dr. Hagey, dentist, passed away with startling suddenness on Wednesday, Feb. 22nd, while motoring in Kitchener. He had driven to Kitchener with his brother-in-law, Mr. W. B. Ashley, and their wives, and when nearing the comfort station adjoining the city hall he complained of illness and stopped the car. As Mr. Ashley was assisting him into the comfort station he collapsed, passing away in a few minutes, death being due to heart failure. Although he had been ill from influenza a short time ago he had apparently fully recovered and appeared to be in his normal health. He was 32 years of age. The late Dr. Hagey was educated at the public school and the Galt Collegiate, subsequently recieving his degree of D. D. S. at the Royal College of Dental Surgeons, Toronto, taking up the practice of his profession in Preston. He was an active and valued member of various organizations, being a prominent member of the Preston Athletic Association and the River View Golf and Country Club, and of the Preston Rotary Club and Preston Club. He was also a leading member of the Preston Lodge A. F. and A. M., this year officiating as worshipful master of the lodge. He was a past president of the Waterloo County Dental Association and was a dental surgeon at the Preston Springs Sanitorium. He was a member of Knox Presbyterian Church. The deceased who was the only son of the late Milton Hagey of Preston, took up the practice of his profession after his return following service with the Canadian Army Dental Corps during the war. He was married to Carrie May Fink eight years ago, who survives together with one son, three years of age, and his mother, May Hagey. The funeral, which was very largely attended, was held on Saturday afternoon under Masonic auspices, Rev. G. S. Lloyd of Hespeler officiating. Hundreds of citizens and friends paid a final tribute of respect. C. 0. Hemphill of Waterloo, M. Schiedel of Kitchener and R. S.

He had much to suffer, however, and did not with the rich man have his good things in this life but the opposite. So that we believe and hope he was also carried by the angels, &c. Thanks unto God forever. Amen. Funeral sermons were preached from Rom. 11:33 and 2 Tim. 2:5.1a

12598 THE HAHN BRASS FACTORY.

The Hahn Brass Co. is a firm of which New Hamburg is proud and justly so. One has only to look over their tine, modern plant and get some insight into the character of the wares they produce, to understand why this industry is a credit, not only to the men who originated it, but also to the municipality within whose confines it is located. The business was established in 1892 and is the first and only one in Canada to manufacture brass trimmings for furniture. Though this is the case, it must be borne in mind that the initial difficulties were many and the resources of two far seeing and able business men were frequently taxed. to the utmost. The machinery requisite for this industry, particularly the dies, are very costly and the held naturally limited. Against these odds, however, the Hahn Brass Co. has made steady progress, though it is quite safe to say that two such factories in the restricted Canadian field would find it impossible to make progress or possibly to make ends meet. The President of the firm is Mr. Lewis Hahn, who was in the furniture business in New Hamburg for 25 years prior to entering the present one. The Secretary and Manager is Mr. Alfred Hahn, formerly of New York; but connected with the brass manufacturing business for many years. These gentlemen have proved a winning team. Starting with 30 hands, they now employ 56. Their business extends all over the Dominion but the great bulk of it is confined to Ontario. Trade is good, which indicates that the furniture manufacturers of Canada have always received the "square deal" from the Hahn Brass Co. The plant, which is located on Waterloo St. near the depot., consists of a main building 3o x 120 feet, two stories high, with a wing 3o x 3o feet; a brass and iron foundry 50 x 80 feet erected a year ago and a stock room 26 x 3o feet. An addition of another story to the 3o x 3o foot annex is contemplated at an early date. This is rendered doubly necessary owing to the Company having just recently gone into the manufacture of Aluminum ware. They have purchased The Berlin Aluminum Co's. plant and removed it to New Hamburg. They turn out all kinds of Aluminum utensils and as this material is coming more and more into vogue each year with the intelligent housewife, the industry, especially when in the hands of business men of the calibre of Messrs.' Hahn, has a very bright future before it. Besides Messrs. Hahn, the officers above mentioned, Mr. E. R. Beger is Vice President of the Company. Both of the active members of the firm are public-spirited men, Mr. Lewis Hahn having given many years of service at the Municipal Council Board while Mr. Alfred Hahn is at present a member of the Free Library Board.1a

12600 OLD PIONEER CALLED TO REST

WEAKNESSES OF OLD AGE GRADUALLY USE UP VITAL FORCES

On Sunday evening there passed away at her home on Hampton street, another of the old pioneers of this district in the person of Anna Margaret Hahn, relict of the late Bernhardt Muth. She was born in Obernklee, Hessen Darinstadt, Germany on the 2nd of February 1842 and was therefore in her 84th year when she died. In 1853 she came with her parents to what was then the village of Waterloo, where the family lived for a short time, then to Conestogo for a few years and then they moved to a small farm north-east of Elmira now owned by Mr. John S. Geisel. Those were the days of the beginning of things, the days of the simple life, when all farmers kept sheep, spun the wool themselves, had it woven by hand-weavers and made their own clothes out of the cloth so woven. The father of Mrs. Muth, the late John Hahn, had been a shepherd in the old country, and in early summer went around from farm to farm shearing the sheep. At this work of shearing sheep his wife was fully his equal. While the family was living at Conestogo the deceased returned to Waterloo to work, and there, 1861 she was married to Bernhard Muth. In 1862 they moved to a small farm near her parents' home. To Mr. and Mrs. Muth were born two children, one son Henry living in Elmira, and one daughter Elizabeth who was married to Mr. Meter Mattusch but, with her infant baby died about 39 years ago. Bernhard Muth died 40 years ago and about a year later Mrs. Muth came to Elmira to wait on her sick daughter and has remained here ever since, keeping house for her son-in-law. Besides her son, only one near relative survives her, namely her brother, Mr. Conrad Hahn. A number of nephews and nieces and more distant relatives also survive.

Mrs. Muth was a member of St. Paul's church, her membership extending back 62 years, longer than that of any other of the present members. The funeral service was consequently held at St. Paul's church yesterday afternoon, Rev. A. Gallmeier officiating. Interment was made in Elmira Union Cemetery. The following acted as pallbearers: George Klinck, Casper Heimbecher, C. W. Schierholtz, George Weismiller, John S. Geisel and Jacob Aberle.1a

12627 Knox Preston Presbyterian Church

Rev. Charles Freshman, who served as a German Wesleyan Methodist missionary in Preston and area c.1860-1869, stated in his autobiography that the Presbyterian Church engaged a "young Swiss preacher and sent him out to evangelize the Germans in Waterloo County" (Freshman 1868:284). Dr. Freshman reported that the young Presbyterian preacher preached in the "Lutheran Church in that place [Preston] ... but he failed to establish a cause" (Ibid:285).
According to the Minutes of the Second General Assembly (1876) of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, a German Mission was established in Preston on August 10, 1875 and an English one was begun on March 14, 1876. Rev. George Haigh was inducted as Minister to the combined congregations of Preston, Doon and Hespeler on April 24, 1876. Formal organization of this English-speaking congregation was on August 29, 1876. Services at the German Mission were "suspended" in January, 1878, "for want of encouragement", according to the Minutes of the Fourth General Assembly in 1878.
Commencing in 1880, services were held by Rev. Haigh in a stone building at the corner of Duke and Argyle Streets in Preston. However, on March 20, 1883 Preston was separated from Doon and Hespeler which remained under the ministry of Rev. Haigh. Preston reverted to a Mission Station at that time, only to be "dissolved" on September 16, 1884, according to the Minutes of the Eleventh General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada in 1885.
The congregation was reorganized in 1891 by Dr. James A.R. Dickson of Central Presbyterian Church, Galt; the first church service was held on April 5, 1891 by Mr. P.W. Anderson in the Royal Templars' Hall in the Schultz Block. The Town Hall was then used for a short time; the first Kirk Session was elected there on March 12, 1893. The Lyceum Hall on King Street was purchased in 1893, renovated, and dedicated on July 16, 1893. Preston and Doon were placed on a two-point charge in 1893; the first minister was Rev. Herbert Francis Thomas (1893-1898) who was ordained and inducted into Knox Presbyterian on August 21, 1893. The church was rebuilt in 1938 and was in use until 1965 when the new church was completed; the King Street property was then sold.
The cornerstone for a new church on Argyle Street North, between King and Duke Streets, was laid on October 18, 1964. Dedication services for the new building held on March 27, 1965 included locking the door of the old church. In 1973 the name of the church was changed to Knox Preston Presbyterian Church when Preston joined with Galt and Hespeler to form the city of Cambridge. Dates on church: 1893, 1965.2

12628 Sketch of the life of CATHARINE BREITHAUPT HER FAMILY and TIMES.

On the main street of Berlin, just east of what is now Scott Street corner, there stood until some twenty years ago a handsome one-and-a-half storey white frame house with sundry additions. Along the front of the house extended a trellised veranda, and the space between this and the street was filled in with a cobblestone walk and a narrow border of flower beds and perennially blooming lilacs. An enclosed lawn with fine trees, and with a grape arbor against the house, filled in the angle between main house and easterly extension. Beyond this was a spacious yard with driveway from street gate to a barn at the rear, and another one-and-one-half storey building directly on the street, the former workshop of the proprietor. Along the street line was an immaculate white picket fence. A well-cultivated vegetable garden outlined with thick rows of currant bushes adjoined the rear of the house. Beyond, down the hill, stretched an orchard to another garden enclosure and a little meadow with diminutive, but never dry, watercourse spanned by a little bridge, the whole bounded by the rear street.

Eight substantial brick houses, roomily spaced, now occupy the former orchard and meadow; the barnyard contains a dwelling and several business buildings; and the old house, still standing, but masked by a brick ex-tension to the street line, is changed to two stores, known as numbers 104 and 106 King Street East.

In this house, not long after it was first built, and many years before it with its setting attained the trim and prosperous look we so well remember, there was born at half-past ten in the evening of a sultry summer day, the 16th day of August, 1834, Catharine, the second daughter of Jacob and Margaret Hailer.

The time was one of memorable affliction in the settlement. An epidemic of cholera had broken out in the village of Galt, twelve miles from Berlin, immediately following the visit of a circus on the 28th of July, and had been brought by resident circus visitors to Berlin and vicinity. In one week there were thirty-three deaths in Galt alone. A victim in Berlin, dying of cholera on August 18th, was the wife of Bishop Eby, who appears to have been the principal man of affairs of the settlement. A man later prominent. in Berlin and in the County generally as a public-spirited citizen came into notice at this time. Dr. John Scott had come over from Scotland to his brother in Galt only a few weeks before the breaking out of the cholera there, and was one of the most active and fearless relief workers. He was later for many years a resident of Berlin, was the first Reeve of the village and first Warden of Waterloo County.

The present Public Library, opposite one of the corners of Court House Square, occupies what had been Dr. Scott's ornamental garden in front of his house; and the old house, of red brick, well preserved though somewhat changed, still stands at the rear of the library.

The little hamlet of Berlin, so named only a few years before, after having been variously known as the Sand Hills and as Ebytown, contained at this time but a few scattered dwellings. Across the road from the one spoken of there was still, and for a number of years after, a con-siderable stretch of woods. A little farther west was one of the sand hills, where now is the Town Hall with street surface graded down about twelve feet below its level of that time. Down the hill was a swamp which the road to the Waterloo grist mill crossed on "corduroy." Stretching for many miles about Berlin was a prosperous farming settlement of Pennsylvania Germans, who had taken up the land some thirty years before.

To this settlement, then a part of Halton County, Upper Canada, came Jacob Hailer with young wife and infant daughter, and on locating in Berlin established a home which he retained to the end of his life. He soon resumed his handicraft of wood turner and chair and spinning-wheel maker, which had been in abeyance since he had left his native Germany a few years before, and at once filled a want in the settlement. The pioneer manufacturer in Berlin, he was also the first settler from Germany, the first of the large body of native Germans who, mainly, made of the little village the most important German centre as well as the foremost manufacturing town in Canada.

Jacob Hailer was born in Wilferdingen, in the Grand Duchy of Baden, Germany, November 20th, 1804. He came to America in 1829, landing at Baltimore, Md. There, through her father, brother and sister, who had been fellow passengers with him, he met Margaret Riehl (born 1807), a native of Muehlhausen in the then French Province of Alsace, who with a younger brother had come over the year before. In those days, which saw the feeble beginnings of ocean steam navigation, the voyage to America was by sailing vessel and was a hazardous undertaking. Margaret Riehl and her young brother were ninety-two days at sea. Their vessel (named the Henry Clay), driven out of its course by adverse winds, was given up for lost, and passengers and crew were on the verge of starvation before port was gained, and this was Baltimore, instead of New York, the intended destination. Jacob Hailer accompanied the Riehl family to Buffalo in 1830, and there, in the same year, married Margaret Riehl. For a while they lived at Chippewa, on the Canada side of the Niagara River, where was born their first child, a daughter, Margaret, in 1831, in the fall of which year they came to what is now Waterloo Township, and lived for a year or longer in a little log-house about one mile west of what is now German Mills, on the main road from that place to Berlin. In 1833 Hailer bought his first acre of land in Berlin, from Benjamin Eby, the (Mennonite) Bishop Eby already spoken of, and at once set up his dwelling and workshop.

As the years passed the German Handwerker and his wife progressed by thrift and industry to competence. The family increased by a further succession of daughters: Harriet, born 1836, Marian in 1838, and Caroline Hannah in 1843; and finally came a son, Jacob Christian, born in 1846 (at which time, as we read, the population of Berlin amounted to 400).

Active as he was in the establishment of the Evangelical Association in Canada, the home of Jacob Hailer was always hospitably open to the ministers of this denomination. The first meetings of the Association in Berlin were for some time held in Hailer's shop. One of the ministers, a young man Jacob Wagner, for a time in charge of the work of the church in Berlin, married Margaret Hailer. Canada was at that time a part of the New York Conference of the Association. Minister Wagner was later stationed in Buffalo, N.Y., where one of his close friends was Philip Louis Breithaupt, a young man carrying on a light tanning business with his father. Breithaupt made periodical trips to Canada to buy sheep skins, etc., for the tannery in Buffalo, and through his friend Wagner made the acquaintance of the Hailer family. Liborius Breithaupt, the father of Philip Louis, died in May, 1851. His funeral was the first at which Minister Wagner officiated at Buffalo. The son thereafter dropped his one given name, Philip, and called himself simply Louis; mainly, it appears, in order to continue the business name of L. Breithaupt.

Louis Breithaupt married Catharine Hailer on the 8th day of February, 1853. We are told of how the wedding party, strung out in a line of cutters, drove daily to Bridgeport, to an hotel located on the south side of the road between the two bridges. Bridgeport at that time was a thriving trade and industrial centre, where were made, by hand, waggons, harness, saddles, knives, scythes, and farmers' requirements generally. In the evening the party attended the opening of the new court house of Waterloo County, then just completed, in Berlin. Husband and wife proceeded by horse and buggy-there was no railway to Berlin-to Buffalo, where awaited them on Carrol Street, next to Seneca Street, in the part of the city long known as the Hydraul-ics, a neat, substantial and commodious brick house just built by the husband. Here passed the first nine years, almost, of Catharine Breithaupt's married life, and here were born her first three sons, Louis Jacob in 1855, William Henry in 1857, and John Christian in 1859.

Before his marriage, a year after the death of his father, Louis Breithaupt formed a partnership with Jacob F. Schoellkopf in Buffalo, Schoellkopf being the capitalist and Breithaupt, apparently, the more active partner, doing particularly the outward business; travelling a good deal, among other directions to the then Far West, to Chicago, and beyond the Mississippi to the Missouri River. There may here be mentioned that in the way of business requiring the services of a lawyer, he made the acquaintance of Abraham Lincoln in Springfield, Ill., and ever afterward retained intense admiration for this national hero. A small photograph of Lincoln, received from him, remains a souvenir of this acquaintance.

An early friend of Louis Breithaupt, from his youthful years, before he was married, and afterward a friend of his family, was, and is, Mr. Carl Boller of Buffalo, now in serene old age, but still active.

In 1857, Breithaupt, preferring a business of his own, started a tannery in Berlin, Canada West, on land obtained from his father-in-law. Hither came his good friend and brother-in-law, Rev. Jacob Wagner, in the spring of 1858, having, on account of broken health, had to quit the ministry and intending to go into business with Breithaupt. He died, only thirty-three years old, two weeks after his arrival in Berlin (in a house, later moved and still in use on Breithaupt Street, then occupying part of the site of the Breithaupt Leather Company's present warehouse and offices on Queen Street). Rev. Jacob Wagner's son, Louis Henry, now Superintendent of Missions for the Canada Conference of the E angelical Association in the North-West Provinces of Canada, lived for many years in the family of his uncle Breithaupt; first for a while in infancy after the death of his father, later in school age, and still later, after college years, when active in his uncle's business, until he entered the ministry in 1882.

In 1861, the year of the breaking out of the American Civil War, Louis Breithaupt decided to move to Canada. The family left Buffalo on the first day of November in that year. In Berlin they occupied for ten years the frame house and additions, now, what there is left, partly separated and used as three dwellings, off Adam Street near the tannery. In this house were born the first daughter, Caroline Margaret Barbara, in November, 1861, Melvina Emilia in 1863, Esra Carl in 1866, Daniel Edward in 1868, and Albert Liborius in 1870. In 1871 the family moved into the large brick house off Adam Street at the head of Margaret Avenue, known as Waldeck; and here, in joy and sorrow and in tranquil older age, Catharine Breithaupt lived for thirty-nine years, by a few years the greater part of her life. At Waldeck were born her children, Catharina Louise in 1872, and Friederich Adolph in 1875, and here she died peacefully and with Christian resignation on the evening of July the 5th, 1910, thirty years and two days after the death of her beloved husband.

The life of the father of the family was one of unremitting activity and of indomitable perseverance. Through successes and reverses, among the latter the complete destruction by fire of his entire tannery plant twice in short succession, in 1867 and in 1870, he built up a large business. In fostering the growth of his adopt-ed town and in the extension of its interests in every direction he was foremost. In the latter years of his life Louis Breithaupt had well earned to be called the first citizen of Berlin. For many years he was school trustee, member of the Town Council, etc. At the time of his death he was in his second year as Mayor of the Town. In all the activities of the father the mother was his constant, devoted and sympathetic helpmate. In the family the father was stern, but always affectionate. Of the mother her older sons will most strongly remember her distress when any of them had done wrong, and her persistence and love in correcting their faults.

A great sorrow came to the family in the tragic death of their little son and brother, Daniel Edward, not quite three years old, in 1871. On a Sunday afternoon, the 9th day of July, there was a Sunday School festival in a grove near the tannery, then rebuilding and not yet completed. Rain coming on the large party took shelter in the building, on the main floor, which broke, dropping many into the vats below. No one was injured to any extent except the little boy, who was drowned. "Gott schenke mir and uns alien die Gnade ihn im Himmel einst wieder zu sehen," [ God, grant me and all of us the grace to see him in heaven once again] wrote father of him in the family records in his Bible.

On the third day of July, 1880, a little after ten o'clock in the forenoon, there closed the useful life of Louis Breithaupt. Of vigorous constitution and great energy, he had broken down by overwork, and died, yet a young man, not quite 53 years old. In the house he planned and built with such excellent forethought, and wherein he died, in the same room as mother after him, he lived for less than nine years.
Father's death was the great crisis in mother's life. It was followed in a few short years by a number of deaths in the family. Freiderich Adolph, the youngest of the family, a most affectionate little boy, and already giving, at his tender age of seven years, evidence of large mental capacity, died of diphtheria on June 21st, 1882, in Cleveland, Ohio, where his mother was on a visit to her friend Mrs. (Bishop) Dubs. On April 14th, 1886, Catharina Louise, the youngest daughter, a bright, lovable child, the sunshine of the household and her mother's particular dependence, died after a short illness. Grandfather and grandmother Hailer celebrated the fiftieth anniversary, their golden wedding, quietly on September 19th, 1880. Not two years after, on the 6th of March, 1882, grandfather died. Grandmother, surviving him for three years, died on the 9th day of June, 1885.

Mother's only brother, Jacob Christian Hailer, died November 5th, 1886. He was twice married; in 1866 in New York, where his first wife died, and on November 21st, 1883, to Louisa Knell, at Berlin, Ont., to where he had returned. One daughter, Erna Bertha, is now the only bearer of the family name of grandfather Hailer's descendants.

Grandmother Breithaupt lived for many years in the family of her son, who tenderly cared for her after the early death of his father. Grandmother came over from Buffalo a few years after the rest of the family. Father had a separate dwelling built for her in one of the additions to the old house, and when building his new house a special part of it was built and arranged for grandmother. She died, at the age of 85 years, in January, 1887, six and one-half years after her son.

Our brother Esra Carl died, faithful unto death to his sense of duty, at 2 o'clock A.M. on the 27th day of January, 1897, from injuries received the evening before in an explosion at the Berlin Gas and Electric works, of which he was manager and part owner. Thus suddenly closed, in the flower of early manhood, at not quite 31 years, a life of large promise of usefulness. Esra Carl had taken the scientific course at North-Western College, Naperville, Ill., graduating in 1887. For some years after that, his health not being strong, he spent parts of the winters in the South, in Bermuda and in Texas, accompanying to both places Dr. D. S. Bowlby, an old and esteemed friend of the family; the family physician for more than forty years. In 1891 and 1892 he took a post-graduate course in Electrical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, after which he lived regularly in Berlin. He changed the Berlin and Waterloo horse railway to an electric railway, and shortly afterward acquired a large interest in the property and became president and manager. He was member of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, and of the Canadian Electrical Association, of which latter body he was vice-president at the time of his death. Of his estate mother gave a thousand dollars to the Berlin and Waterloo Hospital, in which is placed a window to his memory.

It was years after father's death before our dear mother could be induced to resume any interest in life. A visit she made to Germany in 1888, with her son John, daughter Melvina and nephew Rev. L. H. Wagner, to father's relatives as also to her own, may be said to have been somewhat of a turning point. Gradually she became interested in many church and other benevolent activities, and particularly in her grandchildren as they came one by one. Her greatest pleasures were the family gatherings at her house, at Christmas and on other occasions. In her own Zion Church, in the building of which she so largely took part, both financially and with good counsel, and in the many interests connected with it; in the Canada Conference of the Evangelical Association, and in the general missionary and other causes of the Association; in the Berlin and Waterloo Hospital, of the Ladies' Auxiliary of which she was treasurer for a number of years, and in other worthy interests of her native town; she was for many years active. The cause which in later years held her greatest interest was perhaps that of the Deaconess' Society of the Evangelical Asso-ciation in Canada; a cause which she had near at heart, and to which she left a handsome property in Berlin.

With her two oldest sons she was a trustee of her husband's estate, and in this capacity showed her business acumen as well as her power of smoothing out difficulties and reconciling divergent views. She was the active head of the family.

Our dear mother's health, for years feeble after father's death, was later fairly good. To this her habits of industry and regularity and of early rising and retiring largely contributed. She greatly enjoyed travel and benefited thereby. In 1896 she made a second visit to Germany. She made periodical visits to the two of her children living at a distance, and made other journeys, sometimes accompanying one or other of her sons on long trips, on one, only a few years ago, with her son Albert to the Pacific coast, all of which she enjoyed with ever buoyant and eager spirit. For more than twenty-five years she regularly spent part of the summer months in Penetanguishene, on Georgian Bay, where was her summer home and where she had many friends.

She was a. good correspondent, and had, naturally, the art of writing interesting letters. For many years she kept an extensive diary, which became a valuable family and general chronicle.

The death of her son-in-law, A. B. Augustine, in 1909, deeply affected her. Albert Benjamin Augustine was born in Racine, Wis., March 6th, 1859, graduated from North-Western College, Naperville, Ill., in 1879, and had been, at the time of his death, Principal of the Winslow School in his native city for over 25 years. He married sister Caroline in August, 1887, and became a greatly esteemed member of our family. His untimely death, Saturday, April 12th, was caused by kidney disease, which had confined him to his bed about four months. A life-size bronze medallion portrait of him, placed shortly after his death in the school which he well served for so many years, testifies to the respect in which he was held by his fellow citizens.

Mother had been subject to heart trouble more or less for a number of years. In March last she accompanied her son William on a somewhat hurried journey to Bermuda. Here were at the time her friends, and relations by marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Murphy and Miss Murphy, and she much enjoyed a short visit with them and to the scenes described to her, years before, by her son Esra Carl. The journey brought, however, some over-exertion, not sufficiently heeded. Her friends had urged her to prolong her visit in Bermuda, but she was eager to return home, and here her too active disposition led her at once to take part in various work and excitations instead of taking the rest she required. A month after her return heart disease again gave trouble, and a lingering illness set in which gradually exhausted her vitality. She had left her house for the last time, as it proved, by special effort, as she did not feel well, to attend a meeting of the Deaconess' Society. At times hope of recovery seemed justified, but complications ensued and the end was a gradual sinking. On Tuesday morning, July 5th, her children and grandchildren were called to bid farewell. She rallied somewhat, but was weaker again in the afternoon, and slowly lapsed into unconsciousness; she died at half-past eight in the evening. The funeral, Friday afternoon, July 8th, was very largely attended by friends and relatives from near and far. Her mortal remains were reverently laid to rest in the family plot in Mount Hope Cemetery, between the graves of her husband and her son Esra Carl. "So strong, so gentle, a life full of love and good works, which invokes sweet memories, not of sorrow, but of joy and hope," said, of her, a close personal friend. The memory of her useful, noble life remains a blessing to generation upon generation of her descendants.

About fourteen years ago our dear mother planted, in the centre of the little public green in the bend of Margaret Avenue near her house, a northern oak sapling, brought from Georgian Bay. This oak, now becoming a stately tree, is typical of her character-strong, steadfast, beautiful.

Surviving are four sisters, four sons, two daughters, twenty-five grandchildren, the youngest born in her house during her last illness, and two great-grandchildren.

An item from the Toronto Globe, a biographical sketch from the Berliner Journal, a short biography and appreciation in the Christliche Botschafter, by her friend, the editor, Rev. G. Heinmiller, an extract from the Berlin Daily News of July 7th, 1880, relating to Louis Breithaupt, and a family register are appended.

BERLIN, ONT., March, 1911.

From the Globe, Toronto, Thursday, July 7, 1910:
DEATH OF MRS. BREITHAUPT.BERLIN'S OLDEST NATIVE RESIDENT AND A PROMINENT CHURCH WORKER.

BERLIN, Ont., July 6.- The death took place on Tuesday evening of Mrs. Catharine Breithaupt, relict of the late Louis Breithaupt, at the family residence on Margaret Avenue. The deceased had been ill since April with heart trouble.

The late Mrs. Breithaupt was born in 1834, and was Berlin's oldest native resident. Her parents immigrated to Canada in 1830, and were the first German settlers in Berlin. In 1853 she was married to the late Mr. Louis Breithaupt, who then resided in Buffalo. In 1861 they moved to Berlin and Mrs. Breithaupt has resided here ever since. Her husband died in 1880. She is survived by four sons and two daughters.
During her long residence in Berlin she has been connected with almost every charitable and philanthropic movement in the town. She was a life-long member of Zion Evangelical Church and one of its most liberal contributors. In addition to assisting in the erection of the new church, she also donated the beautiful organ in memory of her deceased husband and son Carl. She was a valued member of the various organizations of the church, and was also officially connected with the Deaconess' Society of the Canada Conference and of the General Board in Chicago.

From the Berlin Daily News, July 7, 1880.

MR. BREITHAUPT'S FUNERAL.

Without doubt the largest funeral that ever took place in the County of Waterloo was that of the late Mayor Breithaupt. Amongst those present were friends and relations from Detroit, Buffalo, New York, and other places in the States, the Warden of the County, the Mayors and Councils of Galt, Waterloo, Guelph, Stratford, &c., and nearly all the other leading citizens of the County of Waterloo. As previously stated in these columns, the funeral services commenced at the family residence, where the Revds. S. Weber and C. A. Spies led the devotions. After this the procession formed in the following order, headed by Mr. H. Anthes in a carriage:

The Town Police,
The Band,
The Fire Brigade,
The Employees,
The Clergy,
The Family Physician,
The Hearse,
The Family,
The other Mourners,
The Berlin Council,
Councils of other Places,
The Citizens.

The Police, Band, Firemen and employees were on foot, the rest in carriages. The pall bearers were H. Kranz, M.P., Ex-mayor, Wm. Jaffray, Reeve, and Councillors Clement, Staebler, Anthes and Moffat. The procession moved very slowly, the Band playing the Dead March in a most feeling and affecting manner. All along the route the streets were lined with people desirous of seeing the pageant move along. At the church only a very small portion of the people could get in, but a highly interesting and affecting service was held. The Rev. Joseph Umbach, an old friend and pastor of deceased, preached a very eloquent and powerful sermon in the German, and the Rev. S. L. Umbach made a short address in the English language. The service being concluded here, the procession was again formed and proceeded to the cemetery, where the pastor of the church, the Rev. J. Kliphardt, read the burial service. Amongst the clergy present were, in addition to those already mentioned, Revds. C. F. Braun, Geo. Braun, G. Staebler, M. L. Wing and J. Murlock from a distance, and Revds. Messrs. Fellman, Ford, Manz, Tait, Beaumont, Funcken and Sherk, of the Town. The mere mention of all these names is sufficient to show conclusively in what great esteem the late Mayor was held. In addition to what has already been given in these columns, we add the following particulars as furnished by the family :-Louis Breithaupt was born Nov. 8th, 1827, in Allendorf an der Werra, Kurhessen, Germany. In 1842 his father emigrated to America, and in the following year returned to Germany and brought in his mother and himself. He was at this time 16 years old. He came to Buffalo, N.Y., where he carried on business on a very limited scale in company with his father. On the death of his father in 1851 he became a partner in the extensive tanning and leather business of Mr. J. F. Schoellkopf of Buffalo, travelling for this firm for 12 years. In 1858 he established his leather business in Berlin, and three years later, before the outbreak of the late American war, he removed with his family to Berlin, Canada. He was married in 1853, the three eldest sons being born in Buffalo, N.Y., and the rest of the family here. Three daughters and six sons are now living, and one son was accidentally drowned in July, 1871. He was burned out twice in Berlin. His mother, aged 79, is still living, as also his only sister who resides in Detroit.

Catharine Hailer
 
12629 Breithaupt is a daughter of Jacob Hailer, a native of Baden, Germany. He left the old country in 1829, and after spending one year in Baltimore, Maryland, came to Canada, and settled where the town of Berlin now stands. That was just fifty years ago. He built the fifth or sixth house in the place, and followed the wheelwright business till a few years ago, his specialty being spinning wheels and reels. He is in his 76th year, and somewhat deaf and infirm. His wife is also living, and quite smart and active. Mr. Hailer is a prominent member of the Evangelical Association, and has long been an officer of the same.1a

Zion United Church

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

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

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

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

Of interest: some maps of early Berlin show this church as a German Methodist church.2a

Jacob Hailer was born in Wilferdingen, in the Grand Duchy of Baden, in 1804, came to Waterloo Township in 1832, bought his first acre of land in Berlin from Bishop Benjamin Eby in 1833 and at once established himself as proprietor of a chair and spinning wheel shop, in which he did a modest but flourishing business for well over forty years. He was instrumental in establishing in Canada the religious denomination known as the Evangelical Association, whose regular place of worship for some time, until a church was built, was in Hailer's shop. The first church of this denomination in Canada was built in 1841, on Queen street south, opposite the end of Church street, Berlin. This was a frame building, replaced in 1866 by one of brick and moved to Elgin street, where it still exists as a dwelling. The present church on Weber street is the third building of this denomination in Berlin. Jacob Hailer died in 1882 3a

Jacob Hailer of Wilferdingen, Grand Duchy of Baden, bought an acre of land at the southeast corner of King and Scott Streets in 1832 from Bishop Ben Eby. A stretch of forest stood on the other side of King Street. Mr. Hailer built a home on his purchase and next a chair and spinning-wheel shop. At first he used a foot lathe to do his turning. Samples of his chairs and spinning-wheel may be seen in the Waterloo Historical Society's Museum. Mr. Hailer was the grandfather of a prominent city family, and actively engaged in business for more than forty years.4a

12630 "The sudden and unexpected death of one of Kitchener's oldest and most respected residents, Mrs. Margaret Bean, took place on Sunday evening about 5:30 o'clock following an attack of apoplexy. The deceased, who was 87 years of age a few weeks ago, attended the Children's Day exercises and the regular service in Zion Church on Sunday morning, and after partaking of a hearty dinner she retired to her room as usual. On their return after a few hours absence, her daughter, Mrs. Bender, went upstairs and was shocked to find her mother on the floor in her room cold in death. No one was near. Her death was a peaceful one.

Mrs. Bean moved here with her family from Mildmay over 32 years ago, where her husband Mr. Daniel Bean, died a year previous, and where they had lived for eight years. Mrs. Bean was born in Chippewa on the Canadian side of the Niagara River, on May 30th 1831, and in the fall of the same year she moved with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Hailer, to near German Mills, later removing to what was then the beginning of this city. Growing to womanhood, she wedded Rev. Jacob Wagner, with whom she lived a few brief years until his death. Later she was wedded to Mr. Daniel Bean, who in the early sixties, taught school in the vicinity of Freeport and later in Dundee, and Dashwood, after which he took up farming on the original Bean homestead in Blandford Township, Oxford County, and then moving to Mildmay in 1878. She saw this city grow from a few houses to the present status of a city, as also the church of her choice, in which she was a life member and an active and energetic worker in various departments. She had many friends by whom she will be greatly missed and for whom she always had a cheerful and comforting word.

She leaves to mourn her sudden departure four sons and four daughters; Rev. L. H. Wagner, Supt. of N. W. Missions of the Evang. Association; Mrs. Hy. R. Bates, Elgin, Ill.; Rev. E. H. Bean, Milverton; Mrs. Hy. N. Schmidt, S. Dakota; Mrs. E. M. Haist, Buffalo; S. U. Bean, Kitchener; Rev. J. Wesley Bean, Mt. Elgin; Mrs. A. C. Bender, Kitchener; also 33 grand children and 7 great-grandchildren. Mrs. Hy. S. Dickert, Regina, Sask.; and Mrs. Fred Schnittker, Bruce County, are stepdaughters"1a

12632 'After the war, she never sang again'
On Thanksgiving, a family remembers one of their own, killed 100 years ago

LINWOOD \emdash The Hain family has gathered in this village, surrounded by rolling hills and Mennonite farms, for Thanksgiving every year since 1927.

Between 30 and 35 people, some from as far as California and England, will meet Saturday at the home of Dr. Irene Hain, a retired gynecologist and obstetrician.

They'll enjoy a traditional meal of turkey and mashed potatoes, locally made sausage, mashed turnip, pickled beets and of course pumpkin and "schnitz" (apple) pie for dessert....

A silence that has been kept for a century is to be broken.

The family will speak in detail for the first time about Irene's uncle, Lance-Cpl. Alexander Hain, who served in the First World War and was killed October 8, 1916.

Alex was a signaller, who at age 22 enlisted with the 58th Canadian Infantry Battalion of the Canadian overseas expeditionary force.

He was sent to Belgium and France, where he sent telephone messages to and from the front.

On the last day of his young life, at the Battle of Ancre Heights during the final months of the Battle of the Somme, Alex stepped out of a German dugout that had been captured.

A shrapnel shell exploded overhead.

He died "five minutes later, in the arms of his comrades," said Alex's great-nephew, Allister Hain, who will speak about him Saturday.

Alex was one of five brothers, three of whom went to war in Europe. Norman was killed by a German shell in 1918.

Gordon was studying medicine and served as a surgeon aboard the Royal Navy destroyer HMS Whitley.

He survived the war and witnessed the German fleet surrender in the North Sea. He described the sight as "positively wonderful" in a letter home.

Gordon returned to Canada, finished his studies, and started a medical practice in Linwood. Irene, his daughter, became a physician too and still lives in the family home....

12648 The present thriving village of Elmira, situated about in the centre of the township, had a late and small beginning. In 1844 it had only a log school and a few houses of the same construction.

The first Catholic settlers appear to have come in about 1840 and located about two miles north of the village. Among them were John 'Brian, Martin Halfpenny, Joseph Ruth, Allan Butler, Mr. Compass, Joseph Schill, Ignatius Martin and some others, mostly Germans.

It is likely that Father Wiriath officiated here. Joseph Ruth was married by Father Sanderl in Preston in 1814. Ignatius Martin drove with his oxen team to New Germany over very bad roads to get married by Father Baumgaertner on May 28, 1846. Before the erection of the church Mass was celebrated at Halfpenny's, Schill's and Ruth's once or twice a year.1a

12677 The final summons came with startling suddenness to one of Berlin's eldest and foremost citizens. Mr. H. J. Hall, on Monday evening, shortly before 6 o'clock. He had spent the day in Elmira along with his foreman Mr. Cummings, driving there and back and he was In excellent spirits all day, chatting with Mrs. Cummings and being as active and as well as ever. When. they came to Mr. C. E. Moyer's house King St., west. Mr. Cummings left the cutter to go home. Mr. Hall saying he would drive home and have the horse stabled. It is considered likely that Mr. Hall may have had trouble with his driver a spirited animal at the railway crossing, and that the excitement may have superinduced the apoplectic stroke that cased death. The attack seized him, it is supposed, between the railway crossing and Water street, as he almost invariably took that route home when coming from the West. Mr. W. Brechbill noticed the horse come down King street guided, the reins hanging loose and body apparently limp. The horse was stopped in front of the Canadian block block and Dr. G H. Bowlby hastily called. Mr. Monteath Hall was also notified and the lifeless body was taken to the family residence on Yonge street and the and news broken to his life partner.

The news spread quickly and cast a hush over the busy streets. our citizens hardly realizing that one of their number who has for 30 years moved among us--and who has been an important" factor in the industrial. growth and development of the town, had been called away from the scene of action.

The late Horace J Hall was born at Acton, Ont., on Aug., 16th, 1837, and was therefore 64 years He was the eldest of the family a brother, Mr. Z. A. Hall, Penetang, and a Mrs. J. Brown, Acton, surviving. He came to Berlin in 1878 on St. Valentines Day, and purchased the lumber business carried on by Messrs. Shoemaker and Roat at the corner of Water and King Sts.. There he carried on business successfully when he moved into the premises now occupied.. His lumber And sash business was a large and ever increasing one, and was known the province over. In 1865 he was wedded to Miss Christiana Monteath of Montreal, who with a son, Monteath, and daughter, Kathleen have been so. heavily bereft. He was a zealous member of the First Church of Christ., Scientist, since its inception and by his sympathy and charity, did much to lighten life for those whom he came in contact with. He was a 32nd decree-Scottish Rite Mason.

He always took an interest in Municipal life, and enjoyed the unique distinction of having for 20 years served continuously on the School Board. He was a member this year, but had decided to retire. In the years 1890, '91 and '92 he sat in the Town Council, the latter year as Deputy Reeve. His counsel and action at all times were consistent progress in educational and municipal measures. In his which is sincerely regretted by the town at large, Berlin has lost a progressive, estimable, Christian citizen. The Record extends its condolences...1a

Horace J. Hall
The well-known lumber dealer, Horace J. Hall, died suddenly here on Monday. He had spent the day with his foreman, Mr. Cummings, in Elmira. Shortly before 6 o'clock, the pair returned to Berlin; Mr. Cummings got out near the G.T.R. crossing and Mr. Hall drove on further by himself. When the vehicle arrived in front of the Journal-Press building, it was observed that the reins had fallen out of Mr. Hall's hands and his body was leaning out. The horse was brought to a halt near the Walper House and, to everyone's horror, it was discovered that a heart attack had caused the driver's death. The deceased was born in Acton in 1837, and had carried on the lumber business here since 1878. He belonged to the sect of the faith-healers and had, as well, attained the 32'd degree of the Free-masons. For twenty years without interruption, he had been a member of the school-board. The burial takes place today, Thursday.1a

12685 There passed away at her home, lot 2, con. 6, Blenheim on Friday morning, Sept. 16, a very estimable lady in the person of Mrs. James Dance, after a short illness of only about a week. - Mrs. Dance, whose maiden name was Janet Hall, was the eldest daughter of Walter and Isabelle Hall, Ayr, and was very highly esteemed by a wide circle of friends, who deeply sympathize with her sorely bereaved husband and family. The deceased, who was married in Blenheim in 1896 by the Rev. J. S.

She is the third member of Mr. and Mrs. Hall's family that has entered into eternal rest within a period of slightly over two years - the others being Mrs. John R. Easton of Paris, and Mr. John D. Hall of Ayr. Mrs. Dance leaves a family of five - four boys and one girl.

1aReminiscences of the Early History of Galt and the Settlement of Dumfries in the Province of Ontario, by James Young

________________________

Interestingly, considering its present size, the village of Ayr began as three distinct communities, including Nithvale in the West (Piper Street), Jedburgh in the East (Main Street), and Mudge's Mill in the centre (Stanley/Northumberland Streets). The first settlement occured in 1824 when Abel Mudge built a sawmill at the corner of Cedar Creek and the Nith River (now the site of the Watson factory). Soon after, John Hall built a small flour mill and distillery to the East of Mudge's Mill and named the settlement Jedburgh. At the same time, a smaller settlement (Nithvale) was founded to the West of Mudge's Mill where a small sawmill opened along the Nith. ....John Hall, the patriarch of his family, came to this area in the early 1830's and purchased a seventy-five acre parcel of land that included the area now flooded by the Jedburgh pond. Hall was most likely attracted to this area by the prospect of water power provided by Cedar Creek. By 1850, Hall had developed several industries including a distillery, a grist mill, and a sawmill, all using water power provided by the damming of the creek. As you can see from the bridge which straddles the original dam, the formation of a millpond is a dramatic undertaking. Although now rigidly controlled by the Grand River Conservation Authority, changing water levels used to play havoc with the operation of the mill. A sudden flood caused by the excess runoff could, in seconds, wash away implements in the mill race that took years to build while a drought could bring work to a grinding halt. This unpredictability of water power was an important incitement for industries to convert to electrical power as soon as it became available and affordable. This said, Watson's Manufacturing utilized water power along with other power sources up to 1960. A later stop on the tour recognizes the opposite end of the creek, known as Watson's pond. Together, they constitute what is known as "Millponds.2a

12695 HALL, Raymond M. (1893-1960) maintained an office in Galt, Ontario (now part of Cambridge) for nearly 45 years. Born in Blenheim Township, Oxford County, Ont. on 16 May 1893, he was educated in Plattsville, Ont. and in Stratford, then moved to Toronto to take architectural courses at the Toronto Technical School. In 1913-14 he trained under the talented Toronto architect Charles S. Cobb, then moved to Kitchener where he worked as assistant to Bernal Jones on several occasions over beginning in 1914 and through to 1930. In the meantime, he opened his own office in nearby Galt, Ont. in 1915, and sustained his career there with a variety of eclectic designs for large private residences and commercial buildings. He served with Canadian Expeditionary Forces during WWI, and was briefly in partnership with John Evans, a local Galt architect, in 1919. One of his largest commissions completed during his career was the refined modernist design for the Waterloo County Registry Office in Kitchener (1938), and now called The Registry Theatre.

In 1945 he prepared a stripped modernist design for a proposed Civic Centre in Galt, but the scheme was never built. The perspective drawing by Hall showing his scheme for the project now forms part of the Raymond Hall Collection at the Ontario Archives. Hall died in Galt on 13 November 1960 (obit Galt Reporter, 14 Nov. 1960; R.A.I.C. Journal, xxxviii, Jan. 1961, 57; inf. Ontario Assoc. of Architects). The Ontario Archives, now located at York University in Toronto, holds an extensive collection of original drawings by Hall covering the period from 1920 to 1955, and documenting more than 200 projects by Hall in Galt, and in southwestern Ontario....1a

12713 "The Queens". On a plan dated 1846 the corner lot at Queen and Guelph Road is shown as "The Tavern Lot" which suggests that there was then an hotel either in building or in operation. I am lacking in its earliest history.

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

After Mr. Forbes died, George Thorlby rented the hotel and then it was sold to James Sutherland Cornell, by him to Joseph Krempowich who in turn sold to Samuel Sturman, the present owner.1a

12723 Island man looks back on 100 years lived to the fullest

BY JACQUELYN LEWIS, The Island Packet (Beaufort, South Carolina)

Published Monday, December 12, 2005


Abe Hallman recently pulled off a feat that has earned him countless congratulations, a mountain of greeting cards and a mention on the Today Show. He turned 100 years old on Thursday. "It's like a dream," Hallman said, his warm, gentle features lighting up as he recalled watching Willard Scott telling him "happy birthday" on television. "It doesn't seem real."

But Hallman's daughter, Joanne Hallman Dahl, said the accolades aren't just because her father, who moved to Hilton Head Island in September, has become a centenarian. Instead, she said, the cards and congratulations are kudos for a lifetime of love and service to others.
Hallman helped organize Mennonite Mutual Aid in the 1940s, an organization that helps Mennonite church members obtain affordable insurance. For about 20 years, he spent his spare time traveling the country to volunteer with the organization. Hallman also helped start a church organization that aids missionaries in their travels, and he founded a Mennonite church in Lancaster County, Pa.
Dahl said Hallman, now a grandfather of seven and a great-grandfather of six, also approached fatherhood with the same dedication, becoming a "kindred spirit" to his children.

"(My father) is basically kind of a shy person, but he is so well loved by everyone," Dahl said. "He loves serving and helping people."
Hallman's commitment to helping others dates back to his upbringing in the Mennonite church, he said.
Hallman was born in 1905 in the tiny farming town of Berlin, in Ontario, Canada, and his father, Eli Hallman, was a minister and wheat farmer. Hallman's mother, Melynda, ran the household.

"Those were very happy years, as I remember," said Hallman, who grew up with a younger sister and three older brothers.
"We did farm work; we milked cows and worked in the fields, and this was before you had machines for harvesting," Hallman reminisced from a cushy chair in his small, tidy room at Broad Creek Care Center. "I worked hard, but I was a very happy teenager."
Still, Hallman said, most people in Berlin never went to high school, let alone college. And the farming life wasn't enough to satisfy a young man who dreamed of becoming a stockbroker.

Hallman said his oldest brother, Clemens, was his inspiration to strive for excellence, because Clemens graduated from high school and worked for the government in Canada.

Hallman found a Mennonite school in Indiana where he could earn his high school diploma, and after that, he enrolled at Goshen College, where he earned a bachelor's degree in business and science.

But upon graduation, Hallman said, the Great Depression dashed his hopes of becoming a stockbroker. "It was 1931," he said. "I would have really liked to sell stocks or futures, but there were no jobs in finance." He ended up working for a "huckster" -- a produce farmer who went door to door selling his wares -- for a year. "I rode beside him and carried the basket with some sweet cream butter, eggs and maybe a chicken," Hallman said. Job prospects weren't much better the next year, he said, and he spent 12 months loading trucks and filling out paperwork for a pork processing plant. "There wasn't a future in that," Hallman said. "But it was a job."

He was about 30 when he fell in love with a college friend, Esther Yoder. Hallman and Yoder kindled a romance after they met again at a Goshen College reunion. "We were friends in college, but after the reunion, I saw her in a different light," Hallman said. The two were married on Christmas in 1936. They went on to have two children, Jim and Joanne.

Shortly before he got married, Hallman took a job as a traveling shoe salesman at the now-defunct Miller, Hess and Company. "Selling was the last thing I ever thought I wanted to do," Hallman said. "But it was a job, so I took it." Hallman managed to parlay that job into a 51-year career, in which he traveled the country selling shoes and worked his way up to company president and chairman of the board of directors.

And, despite his initial doubts, he said he ended up enjoying his career. He got to see the entire United States, and in between working and volunteering with his church, he took his family on vacations to places like New York City. "I've never in my whole life had an 8-hour a day job where I had to sit at a desk," he said. "That's unusual."

Hallman also developed some unusual talents over the years. He picked up woodcarving when he was in his 70s. He learned to sculpt detailed figures such as cowboys and Santas from blocks of basswood after he saw a wood carving display in a Phoenix, Ariz. mall.
"That was on a Wednesday," he said, the meticulous fruits of his more than 20 years of labor dotting the dresser and tables in his room. "I took a (wood carving) class on Friday, and I was hooked. It must have been working with my hands and the details that I liked. Apparently, I had an ability that very few people have."

He also learned to make hook rugs after his second wife, Lois, got involved with the hobby. "At first I said, 'absolutely not,'" Hallman said with a laugh. "But then I was watching her, and I got hooked."

Although Hallman said he has slowed down a bit since approaching 100, he brought both hobbies with him when he moved to Broad Creek Care Center from Goshen, Ind., to be closer to his daughter. He also walks, lifts weights and does crossword puzzles every day. "I've had a good life," he said. "But it hasn't all been a bed of roses."

He said he had to face the death of his first wife, Esther, in 1972 -- he married a second time, to Esther's sister, Lois, in late 1973 -- and the death of his only son, Jim, when Jim was in his 40s. Then, Lois died in 1994. But Hallman said he's been able to get through the tough times by drawing on his faith and his ability to adapt to any situation. "You can always begin again," daughter Dahl said. "And he always has."

Birth date: Dec. 8, 1905.
Hails from: Berlin (now Kitchener), Ontario, Canada.

Greatest life lesson: "I have a philosophy that I call 'go with the flow.' You can try to change something you dislike, so you fight it and try to keep everything going as it was. But when a river is dammed, it has no outlet and it tends to get stagnant."

We miss you everywhere."

HALLMAN. - On the 26th of Jan., 1891, in Blenheim Twp., Oxford Co., Ont., Amos Hallman, aged 21 years, 2 days. On the 25th, he attended services in the Blenheim church and on the way home, Amos with 4 of his comrades stood in the rear end of the sled. The team, having gone over a piece of bare ground, and being suddenly relieved on the heavy load on striking a piece of good road, caused the sled to lurch forward, and several of the boys fell out. Amos fell on his head, causing concussion of the brain. He was conscious only a few moments and in a short time a corpse. "What is man that thou art mindful of him." What a lesson of warning to his neighbors, comrades, brothers, and sisters. May all take it to heart and prepare to meet their God in peace. Bro. And Sister Hallman have the warm sympathies of the friends and neighbors. This was the largest funeral ever held in the Blenheim church. Services by Joseph Nahrgang and J. S. Coffman, from Matt. 20: 19, and 1 Peter 1: 242a

12736 Anthony Hallman, "ancestor of the numerous family of that name in Pennsylvania and other parts of the United States, and Canada, was born in Switzerland about the year 1714. He came to Pennsylvania at a very early date and settled among his co-religionists (the Mennonites) in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, where we find him, in 1745, reckoned as one of the well-to-do farmers. The precise date when he left his native home is not known; it may have been as early as 1724, but the cause that impelled this old ancestor to emigrate undoubtedly was on account of religious persecution which raged in his native home at that time. All efforts made to gain information in regard to his family proved almost fruitless. We know that his wife's given name was Mary but of her maiden name nothing is known. Neither do we know the number of children born unto him. One son was named Benjamin."1a

12740 Benjamin Hallman, "was born September 18th, 1783, in Perkiomen Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, where he followed farming as his calling. During the great financial depressions from 1816 until 1827 many of that calling in Montgomery and other counties failed financially, and in order to save their creditors from losing any money, the distressed farmers sold their farms at a great sacrifice and paid their debts, and with whatever little balance left they wended their way to Canada where land could be had cheap and thus made another attempt to gain a free home. And as a rule all these parties in a very few years were the possessors of valuable farms. Such was the case with Benjamin Hallman, our Canadian progenitor. He suffered financially during the great crisis as aforesaid, and, finding things to his advantage, he moved to Canada in 1825 (See page 56 for more information) and settled in Waterloo County, two miles west of the town of Waterloo. Here he resided until spring (1826) when he moved to North Dumfries Township, about one mile east of Roseville, where he had purchased a most beautiful farm, then nearly all forest. This farm is now in possession of Menno H. Hallman. Here the old progenitor died full of years, September 10th, 1869. On September 2nd, 1802, he was married to Elizabeth, daughter of Jacob and Margaret (Harley) Detweiler. She was born August 8th, 1784, and died August 9th, 1856. To them was born a numerous family, all of which were born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, save the two youngest, Hannah and Wendel, who were born in Waterloo County, Ontario"1a

12755 Hallman - Clemens S. oldest son of Eli and Melinda Clemens Hallman, was born at Kitchener, Ont., June 11, 1895; died at St. Paul,s Hospital, Saskatoon, of inflammatory rheumatism and heart failure, after an illness of over five weeks; aged 32 y. 2 m. 12 d. On June 19, 1919, he was married to Cleo Shearer of Wakarusa, Ind. To this union were born 4 children: one whom died in infancy. The family who mourn this loss are his beloved wife, two daughters, one baby son, his parents, three brothers (George, William, Abram). And one sister (Anna), besides his relatives and a host of friends. During the first evangelistic meetings held in this part of the country by Bro. A. D. Wenger in the pioneer days of this district, he became the first convert to Christ, at the age of 11, and was later baptized and received into the Mennonite Church of which he was a member till death. In the year 1915 he graduated with the academy class at Goshen College. He later continued his studies at Saskatchewan University. For a few years he taught public school and in college; but the most of his secular profession was devoted to the education work for the Department of Agriculture in the Province. In the days of his sickness he sincerely regretted that he did not give more of his devotion to the cause of Christ, and trusting anew in the mercy of God realized Hid pardon, and rejoiced in hope of the glory of God. In the last days of suffering, as the end drew nearer heaven became dearer, and the things of time were fading away. Our loss is his eternal gain. Funeral services were held at the Sharon Mennonite Church, conducted by I. S. Rosenberger, M. H. Schmitt (text. Psa. 90: 12), and Edwin Bartel (text, Lam. 1: 12).1a

Hallman, Eli S. (1866-1955)

"Eli S. Hallman: minister and bishop of the Sharon Mennonite Church at Guernsey, Saskatchewan. Field Secretary for Goshen College, and bishop in congregations in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, was born 26 February 1866 in Waterloo, Ontario, and died at Akron, Pennsylvania, on 25 August 1955. He married Melinda Clemens (18 May 1873-12 February 1956) on 9 April 1893. They were the parents of five children.

Hallman joined the Methodist church in Ontario at the age of 21, but joined the Mennonite Church following a revival conducted by the Mennonite evangelist, J. S. Coffman. He was ordained as a minister at the First Mennonite Church in Kitchener, Ontario on 17 June 1897. During the first seven years of his ministry, he spent the greater part of his time conducting evangelistic services in Ontario and parts of the United States. Then, in 1905, he agreed to accompany a group of Mennonites who were moving West to the Quill Lake Mennonite Reserve in Saskatchewan. He served as the minister of the new Mennonite congregation at Guernsey, Saskatchewan, and in 1907 he was ordained in Ontario as a bishop to have oversight of the newly organized Alberta-Saskatchewan Mennonite Conference .

In western Canada, and later in the southern United States, Hallman demonstrated love and acceptance of ministers of other denominations, especially the General Conference ministers of nearby communities. He was also a strong supporter and became a member of the Canadian Mennonite Board of Colonization which facilitated the immigration of more than twenty-thousand Mennonites from the Soviet Union to Canada in the 1920s. His openness to other Mennonite groups brought him many invitations to take part in special services, but he never apologized for the practices of his own congregation and conference. He tried to be firm and exercise redemptive love, and was biblical in his teaching. He greatly enjoyed teaching in the district winter Bible schools which he strongly supported.

Hallman accepted an appointment to serve as Field Secretary of Goshen College in 1912, but in 1916 the family moved to Grand Bay, Alabama, for health reasons, and a little later to Allemands, Louisiana, where he assisted in the formation of a new congregation. The family returned to Guernsey, Saskatchewan, in 1919, where he again served the Sharon Mennonite Church until 1928 when the Hallman family, again for health reasons, moved to Falfurrias and later in 1932 to Tuleta, Texas. There he served congregations in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas as bishop until his retirement in 1951. Throughout his life he demonstrated a great interest in evangelism and in missions. Two of his five children became missionaries in Argentina. After his retirement he lived in Akron, Pennsylvania, where he died on 25 August 1955 at the age of 89."2a

Hallman, -- Eli S. , son of the late Abraham and Mary (Schmitt) Hallman, was born Feb. 25, 1866, in Waterloo Co., Ont. ; entered into rest Aug. 25, 1955, at his home in Akron, Pa. , after an illness of eight weeks; aged 89 y. 6 m. On April9, 1893, he was married to Melinda Clemens, who shared with him life's joys and sorrows for 62 years. He accepted Christ as his Saviour in his youth and united with the Mennonite Church. Throughout his life he served the Lord faithfully and his consecrated service to the Church brought the blessings of a rich and fruitful ministry. On June 17, 1898, at the age of 31, he was ordained to the Christian ministry at the First Mennonite Church, Kitchener, Ont. His early years in the ministry (from 1897 to 1907) were spent in evangelistic and missionary activities as well as in Bible conference work in various sections of the Church. He retained this deep interest in missionary endeavors throughout his entire life. In 1905 he helped to establish a Mennonite settlement in the western part of Canada near Guernsey, Sask. In May of that year a congregation was organized which became known as the Sharon Mennonite Church. He preached the first sermon for the homesteaders in Deacon Aaron Biehn's tent on May 7, 1905, using Heb.11: 8-10 as his text. Besides taking care of his regular Sunday preaching appointments he spent much of that first year at Saskatchewan in locating homesteads and lands for settlers as well as assisting the new settlers in setting up their homesteads. Because of his busy life of service in behalf of others during these days, his neighbors offered by turns to plow the ten acres on his homestead which were required for homestead duties. In November of 1907, he was ordained as bishop by the Ontario Conference to have the oversight of the newly organized Alberta-Saskatchewan Conference. Later he served as field secretary for Goshen College between the years of 1912 and 1916. Because of health reasons he and his family moved to Grand Bay, Ala. , in 1916 and later to Allemands, La., where he assisted in the formation of a new Mennonite congregation. In 1920, it became possible for him and his family to return tothe Guernsey section of Saskatchewan and the Sharon congregation where he served the Alberta-Saskatchewan Conference until 1928. In that year he took up residence in Falfurrias and later Tuleta, Texas, where he remained until his retirement in 1951. For these twenty-three years he served as bishop in congregations in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. Since his retirement he lived in Akron, Pa. , and was a member of the Monterey Mennonite Church. He served on the Mennonite Publication Board and the Mennonite Board of Education. During the early 1920's he was a member of the Colonization Board of Canada. Because of his wide experience and sound Christian judgment he was bale to give guidance and counsel which have been greatly appreciated by younger men in the ministry. He maintained a Church-wide interest and up to the year before his death he was present in district conference sessions. Surviving are his wife, Melinda Clemens Hallman, and these children (George B., White Fox, Sask.; William E., Argentina, S. A. ; Abram P., Akron, Pa; and Anna-Mrs. B. Frank Byler, Argentina, S. A. The eldest son (Clemens) preceded him in death in 1927. Also surviving are 2 sisters (Sarah of Josiah Cassel, Preston, Ont.; and Lucinda-Mrs. Ephraim Snider, Kitchener, Ont.), one brother (J. Riley Hallman, Toronto, Ont.) , 14 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Funeral services were held Aug. 27 at the Monterey Mennonite Church, Lancaster Co., Pa., with Amos S. Horst and Maurice W. Landis officiating. A further service was held Aug. 29 in the Cressman Mennonite Church Breslau, Ont., conducted by Oscar Burkholder, Lewis Fretz, and others.

When well up in his "teens" he left the farm and worked with the carpenters and builders.

After teaching two and one-half years in Bruce County he retired from the profession and moved to Berlin where he still resides. When quite a young man he was converted unto the Lord and soon thereafter he joined with the River Brethren denomination, of which body he was a member for some years. In 1879 he united with the Mennonite Brethren in Christ denomination of which body he is an active member. In 1881 he gave his life to the ministry for the last named body and has served the church of his choice faithfully up to the present. In October, 1888, the general conference held in Berlin, Ontario, had him appointed editor of the Gospel Banner, a position he still holds. He is united in wedlock with Maria Rosenberger and has a family of five children".1a

H. S. Hallman (5 August 1859-13 October 1932) was a United Missionary Church (now Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada) minister and editor. Hallman was born near Kitchener, ON. On 18 February 1881, he married Maria Rosenberger, and to their union nine children were born. Converted at the age of 14, he entered the ministry in 1881, and was ordained in 1885 by the Ontario Conference of the United Missionary Church. He held pastorates at Port Elgin and Elmwood, ON.

Elected editor of the Gospel Banner in 1888, Hallman served in this capacity for 20 years, and also as publisher from 1899 to 1908. Under his leadership the paper became a weekly publication in 1893. He also published several tracts, books, hymnbooks, and periodicals, and became the founder and first publisher of the Scripture Text Calendar which he continued to edit until his death in 1932.
Hallman was secretary-treasurer of the Ontario Conference Mission Board 1898-1910, and president 1910-17. He was the first president of the Ontario Conference city mission work. He was secretary of the Ontario conference for 15 years and also secretary of five general conferences of the denomination (1888-1904 inclusive).

In the latter part of his life Hallman became active in the Christian and Missionary Alliance (CMA), although still retaining his membership in the United Missionary Church. For several years he was superintendent of the CMA publishing business in New York City, later serving as pastor of Alliance churches in Brantford and Toronto, ON. He died in Toronto on 13 October 1932.2a

12834 Lyle Hallman death

WATERLOO, Ont. -- The University of Waterloo family is saddened today by the tragic loss of Lyle Hallman, one of the Kitchener-Waterloo community's leading philanthropists and a great friend of the University.

Over the last decade, Lyle Hallman and his family generously supported the University of Waterloo, beginning with a donation for an endowment in the UW Library.

Later, several large donations to the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences made possible, first the creation of the Lyle S. Hallman Institute for Health Promotion and, more recently, the expansion of that facility. The Institute sponsors research and outreach programs to promote healthy living.

"Lyle was a tremendous friend to the University of Waterloo and a joy to be with," said president David Johnston. "He appreciated the vital reasons for advancing research into the kinds of health-related areas engaged in by the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences."
"He took great delight in helping UW and the community and will be greatly missed. But his legacy as a community builder will endure," Johnston said.

Past president James Downey had many associations with Hallman. "The University has lost a splendid benefactor and our K-W community has lost one of its finest citizens. He combined great business acumen with an admirable social conscience. Along with others, I was delighted when he was admitted to the Order of Canada. I feel privileged to have known him."

Mike Sharratt, dean of the Faculty of Applied health Sciences, said: "Lyle Hallman demonstrated an unparalleled generosity of spirit for helping children achieve a healthy lifestyle. We will honour that spirit through our research and teaching within the Lyle S. Hallman Institute for Health Promotion at UW." 1a

June 10, 2003 Hallman sells rental empire.


Waterloo- ON - June 10, 2003
- It's the end of an era for the area's biggest landlords. Lyle and Wendy Hallman are getting out of the rental business. The basic, affordable block-style Hallman buildings that sprang up across the landscape over the decades and housed tens of thousands of people are being sold in one huge, multi-million-dollar real-estate deal. Wendy Hallman, 53 president of Hallman Property Management, confirmed yesterday that she and her husband Lyle, 81, are selling all of their more than 3,000 rental apartment units in 63 buildings. She wouldn't disclose the sum but it has been described as the biggest real-estate transaction ever for this area. The name of the buyer won't be made official until the superintendents have been informed. But it's known the deal is with an out-of-town company that owns apartment buildings in this area. The decision to sell the entire residential rental business came about quickly, Wendy Hallman said. When a buyer emerged who wanted all of the buildings, "that made it a very nice package," she said.

For more than 20 years, the Hallmans have lived in a unit in one of their apartment buildings in Waterloo. So, as of July 3, when the deal closes, "we'll be tenants for the first time," she said. Lyle Hallman described the sale as "a very successful ending to something I've been involved in for a lot of my life." It was the right deal at the right time, he said. But Hallman was adamant he has no intention of retiring, even if he is out of the rental business. He will still develop vacant properties for building lots and has office space on Victoria Street North to continue that part of the business. He also still owns a small commercial plaza and is busy with philanthropic endeavours. "I'll be in the office every day," he said. Wendy Hallman, who has worked for Lyle for 29 years and has run the property management side of the business in recent years, said "He still tires me out…I don't think he'll ever retire." Hallman's father was a general contractor in the Preston section of Cambridge. His business crashed in 1929. That didn't deter Lyle, who started his own business with $750 in 1945 after serving in the Second World War. He began by renovating buildings, then buying land and building houses.

He built his first apartment building in 1966 and kept on building. "I didn't know enough to stop," he said. The buildings sprung up not only in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and Guelph but also in smaller communities such as Elmira, New Hamburg, Fergus, Hanover, and Listowel. "We had millions of dollars of mortgage money in it but I just kept paying the mortgages down," Hallman said. The business grew until he had, at one point, about 4,000 units. His son, Tom, in Cambridge, started his own property management business and bought about 800 of the units. "Another son, Peter, was also prominent builder developer but died in a motorcycle accident in 1999. Hallman's daughter-in-law and two other children run seniors' homes. Hallman prided himself on building "housing for the masses." He built units geared to the average working person. The signature Hallman buildings are solid, square and basic yet clean and well maintained. "When I started, I had one thought in mind: There are more Chevrolets on this road than there are Cadillacs," Hallman said. Realtor John Whitney said Hallman has left a significant and lasting footprint in this area. "If you grew up in this area, chances are, you've lived in a Hallman building or you've had friends and family members who have lived in a Hallman building," Whitney said. "He didn't build the Taj Mahal but what he built was high quality and he maintained the buildings impeccably." As other investors were turning apartments into condominiums Hallman was adding to the area's rental housing stock. "He provided an infrastructure that allowed the region to grow," Whitney said. "It would be hard to get the employee base we have and get accommodation for those workers without the units he built. What he built is an important as a road network or an expressway."

Hallman's legacy is more than buildings. He's also been one of the area's most generous philanthropists. Recent donations include $1.5 million to the K-W Health Centre, $500,000 to the Fairview Mennonite Home in Cambridge, $500,000 for a pool that bears the Hallman name in Kitchener's Stanley Park area, and $1 million to the K-W Community Foundation. At a groundbreaking ceremony today, the Hallman's will launch an addition to the Lyle S Hallman Institute for Health Promotion, based at the University of Waterloo. Hallman said that with the proceeds from this sale, he will likely be able to do even more philanthropy. "I've got enough energy left to just keep going. There's a silver dollar at the end of every day," he said. He added that he does have a hobby outside his work; he's been an avid cross-stitcher for 25 years. "I always get up early (about 5 a.m.) and I can do an hour or two of sewing," he said. "I get a great satisfaction out of this because I don't have the TV on and I keep on sewing while I am thinking." Whitney said Hallman has shown people what one person can build. "I don't know of any more wonderful story than the Lyle Hallman story. 2a
