27019 Bank Burglary

The old Gore Bank had a local branch in Galt, in the sixties. The office adjoined Miss Echlin's hat store, on South Water Street.

The bank door was reached by an open verandah extending from the street to the river wall along the south wall of the building. Upon entering this door there was found a capacious room for the transaction of business and a door leading to a small office for the manager, who, at that time, was John Davidson, one of Galt's early settlers.

There was a bold attempt to rob this bank in the early days of the eighteen sixties, while the first families of Galt were holding a ball in the Town Hall, with guests from Guelph, Berlin, Brantford, Paris and Woodstock; an event in those days that was looked forward to with much interest, as it was a swell affair in every particular. The ladies arranged the supper, which was a feast that would open the eyes of the present generation. The tables fairly groaned with everything good, including claret cup and punches, and everybody did full justice to the spread. The music was rendered by the 13th Battalion Corps, of Hamilton; the hall was decorated from floor to ceiling with flags, bunting of all colors, and with beautiful pictures loaned by the citizens. The stage was carpeted and furnished like a pretty drawing room to be used by those who did not dance, to play whist and to gaze upon the merry throng of dancers below.

The ball was again in full swing, after supper had been served, when across the waxed floor, a figure clad in overcoat and muffler was seen rushing through the maze of dancers to the manager of the bank. He whispered into the banker's ear the disconcerting news that burglars were in the bank. After a hurried apology to his fair partner, the manager, Mr. Davidson, took the arm of the strange guest and left the hall, whispering to several men to follow him quietly and quickly, and when they reached the dressing room they learned the object of the mission and the work they were to perform. Accompanied by the only constable in the town they lost no time in reaching the bank, where, however, the two burglars, who had been seen there, had taken alarm and escaped, before having had time to secure much booty. Both robbers were captured some weeks later, near Hamilton, and duly tried and convicted at the spring assizes in Berlin. One of them was the then notorious Bristol Bill; the other was a man named Clews. Quite a number of Galt citizens and their wives attended the trial.

The person who first discovered the burglars was Mrs. Steve Wilkins, who, from across the street, it being a bright moonlight night, saw strangers on the verandah adjoining the bank, and promptly sent a messenger to the Town Hall, where her husband was at the dance.

27025 St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church

The congregation was organized on December 1, 1834 by the Rev. F.W. Bindemann (1834-1838). Worship services were held in homes and barns until the Lutheran Rudel brothers erected a stone building for this purpose at the corner of what is now Queenston Road and Montrose Street. The premises were also made available to other congregations when they were first established in Preston. Land for a Lutheran church was purchased in 1837 and a frame church was built in 1839 on King Street on the site of the present St. Peter's. This fifty foot by forty foot church with its sixty foot tower was Preston's first church, called Christ Church, and was free for the use of all denominations. The building was used until replaced by the present-day stone church. The cornerstone for the new church was laid on August 21, 1887. The old frame church had been relocated before then to a lot on the corner of Queen and Church Streets where the congregation worshipped until the new stone church was ready for consecration in 1889. Weekly evening services in the English language began at that time.
A new parsonage was built in 1913 on land behind the church, and renovations and improvements have been made to the interior of the church over the years. A new Christian Education wing was built in 1957 (cornerstone: January 27, 1957) and dedicated in 1958. Pastors who followed F.W. Bindemann were Revs. J. Huettner (1838-1849) who was the first regular pastor, F. Hildebrandt (1849-1850), Jacob Hoelsche (1850-1854), and Rev. Immanuel Wurster who served the congregation from 1854-1881. Rev. Wurster also ministered to St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church in Hespeler.1

Death Occurs on Friday

Elsie Rudow Brown Passes Away After Weeks of Suffering


A particularly sad death occurred at the Kitchener-Waterloo hospital on Friday, April the ninth, when Elsie Rudow, the young wife of Jacob Brown of Elmira passed away following a lengthy illness. She had been a patient at the Kitchener hospital for about two months, where she had undergone several operations for mastoid and although at times she rallied the poison had gone through her system and eventually caused her death.

The late Mrs. Brown was born in Waterloo on the 6th of January, 1900. When six years old she came with her family to Elmira, where she has resided for the past twenty years. Of a pleasing disposition she was highly thought of in this community. On August 27th, 1924, she was married to Jacob Brown. Besides her husband she leaves her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Franz Rudow, two brothers, Fred and William of Elmira and one sister Mrs. Annie Sanford of Toronto. Much sympathy is expressed for Mr. Brown also for Mr. and Mrs. Rudow who since coming to Elmira have lost four children.

The funeral, held on Monday afternoon, was attended by a large number of relatives and friends. Rev. L. Kalbfleisch preached the funeral sermon from the text Hosea 6,1. The following were pallbearers: Alvin Brubacher, Clarence Jung, Norman Ruppel, Bern Norman, Edgar Rahn and Harold Cress.3a

27043 Died Suddenly On Sunday

Frank Rudow Junior Passed Away Without Warning At His Home


A familiar figure in the life of the town was removed when Mr. Frank Rudow Junior died early last Sunday morning after having been unexpectedly stricken Saturday night. Since the previous Tuesday he had not been feeling well, but was at his tobacco shop on Arthur street steadily until Saturday night about eight o'clock when he took a sudden turn for the worse, and went home where he lapsed into unconsciousness from which he never rallied despite all medical efforts and he passed away in the morning. The late Mr. Rudow was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Rudow, King street. He was born at Pembroke in 1886. With his parents he moved to Elmira about 20 years ago and it was about that time he began the trade of barber. During the past ten years, he has been operating a shop of his own located on Arthur street. About 17 years ago he was united in marriage to Miss Edith Dreisinger, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Dreisinger of Elmira. Their marriage was blessed with five children, three boys and two daughters; Milton, Claire, Elmer, Arietta, and Alma, all of whom survive as also his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Rudow, two sisters, Mrs. Sanford, Toronto and Mrs. Jacob Brown Elmira; and two brothers, Fred and William. The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon. After a short service at 2 o'clock at the house the remains were taken to St. James cemetery for burial. Rev. Mr. Kalbfleisch conducted the services.1a

27077 This large, two storey fieldstone farmhouse was built by Daniel Rudy in 1847. The builder carved his name and the date of construction on one half of a grindstone and embedded it in the second storey front wall to the right of the door. Like many early mennonite houses it is built in the plain Georgian style and faces south.
The house retains many of its early features. Some of the original small-paned twelve-over-eight windows remain. A number of other windows are six-over-six panes. It also has small attic windows as well as a bell in a cupola which was rung to call the men in from the fields. In the 1870's, a brick doddy house was added (for the parents when the son took over the farm), the porch, the two-over-two paned windowsand the board and batten summer kitchen may also have been added at this time. Colourful granite stones with large corner blocks give the house a pleasant patchwork-quilt appearance. Custom was to plaster the stone work under the front verandah.
All facades of this historical "rural" Waterloo home were recognized in the designation of the structure as a Heritage Landmark.1a

27089 Truck Hit On Breslau Area Line

A Breslau district farmer and his three young children, were killed instantly late yesterday afternoon, when their pick-up truck was struck by a twin-diesel freight train, on township road 1, near Shantz Station. Dead are Howard Levi Rudy, 43, of RR 2. Breslau; his two daughters, Nancy Ann, 10 and Phyllis Marie, 8 and son, Walter Eugene, 5. The accident took place on a railway crossing at the Waterloo-Wellington county line, only a few hundred yards from the Rudy farm laneway and about 10 miles east of Kitchener. RETURN FROM SCHOOL

Mr. Rudy was returning from Vance School, about 11/2 miles south of his farm, after picking up his two daughters. The young boy, who doesn't attend school, went along for the ride. The truck was struck on the passenger side of its cab, by the westbound freight train, wrapped itself around the front of the engine and was carried down the tracks for half a mile. The railway tracks run parallel to the Rudy farm buildings. The wrecked truck and its four victims, were carried past the Rudy home, where Mrs. Rudy was in the barn cleaning out a milk tank. She said she heard a "bump" at the time of the impact, but thought it could have been a noise made by cows, shuffling in their stalls.
INQUEST PLANNED

Dr. C. C. Belyea, coroner, said an inquest will be held. He described the victims' injuries as "very extensive" and was of the opinion death was instantaneous. "It was one of the worst tragedies I have seen in this area," he said. A postmortem was performed on Mr. Rudy, at K-W Hospital today. Howard Hicks, 43 Chrisholme Ave., Toronto, in charge of the train, told Waterloo Township Chief Livingstone, he noticed the truck on the tracks but was unable to halt the diesel in time. The truck started to fall apart after it reached a laneway, directly behind the Rudy home, more than a quarter mile from the main crossing.

DEBRIS STREWN

A wheel with chains, a hubcap and other pieces of debris were strewn along the tracks. The crossing where the tragedy took place has no signals and is unlighted. There were no known witnesses. Police said the truck's tires left 21 feet of skid marks, leading to the tracks. One theory is that the truck, a 1953 model, stalled on the tracks. The accident occurred at 4:35 p.m. A member of the train crew notified police. Chief Livingstone said there haxe been many tragic accidents in the township, but I think this is one of the worst in which I have taken a part in the investigation Assisting the chief were constables, John Stevenson, Nyle Soehner and Donald Herman. Chief Livingstone removed the bodies from the twisted wreckage.

SURVIVORS LISTED
Besides his wife, Mr. Rudy is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Rudy, RR 1, Hespeler: two brothers, Arthur of Waterloo and Wilfred of Edmonton; three sisters, Mrs. Homer (Anna) Burkhardt, RR 5, Galt: Mrs. Melvin (Margaret) Bearinger, RR 3, Waterloo and Mrs. Jesse (Lucile) Markle, RR 1, Hespeler. Mrs. Rudy's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Sydney Lichti, live at 236 Alexandra Ave., Waterloo. The former Erma Lichti, Mrs. Rudy was once employed at the John Forsyth Ltd. plant in Waterloo. The bodies are at the Harry K. Stager Funeral Home, 566 Queen St., Preston, until Friday night. Funeral service will be conducted, Saturday, at 2:30 p.m., at the Wanner Mennonite Church, Beaverdale (near Hespeler). Rev. Merle Shantz will officiate.

27113 Truck Hit On Breslau Area Line

A Breslau district farmer and his three young children, were killed instantly late yesterday afternoon, when their pick-up truck was struck by a twin-diesel freight train, on township road 1, near Shantz Station. Dead are Howard Levi Rudy, 43, of RR 2. Breslau; his two daughters, Nancy Ann, 10 and Phyllis Marie, 8 and son, Walter Eugene, 5. The accident took place on a railway crossing at the Waterloo-Wellington county line, only a few hundred yards from the Rudy farm laneway and about 10 miles east of Kitchener. RETURN FROM SCHOOL
Mr. Rudy was returning from Vance School, about 11/2 miles south of his farm, after picking up his two daughters. The young boy, who doesn't attend school, went along for the ride. The truck was struck on the passenger side of its cab, by the westbound freight train, wrapped itself around the front of the engine and was carried down the tracks for half a mile. The railway tracks run parallel to the Rudy farm buildings. The wrecked truck and its four victims, were carried past the Rudy home, where Mrs. Rudy was in the barn cleaning out a milk tank. She said she heard a "bump" at the time of the impact, but thought it could have been a noise made by cows, shuffling in their stalls.
INQUEST PLANNED
Dr. C. C. Belyea, coroner, said an inquest will be held. He described the victims' injuries as "very extensive" and was of the opinion death was instantaneous. "It was one of the worst tragedies I have seen in this area," he said. A postmortem was performed on Mr. Rudy, at K-W Hospital today. Howard Hicks, 43 Chrisholme Ave., Toronto, in charge of the train, told Waterloo Township Chief Livingstone, he noticed the truck on the tracks but was unable to halt the diesel in time. The truck started to fall apart after it reached a laneway, directly behind the Rudy home, more than a quarter mile from the main crossing. DEBRIS STREWN
A wheel with chains, a hubcap and other pieces of debris were strewn along the tracks. The crossing where the tragedy took place has no signals and is unlighted. There were no known witnesses. Police said the truck's tires left 21 feet of skid marks, leading to the tracks. One theory is that the truck, a 1953 model, stalled on the tracks. The accident occurred at 4:35 p.m. A member of the train crew notified police. Chief Livingstone said there haxe been many tragic accidents in the township, but I think this is one of the worst in which I have taken a part in the investigation Assisting the chief were constables, John Stevenson, Nyle Soehner and Donald Herman. Chief Livingstone removed the bodies from the twisted wreckage.
SURVIVORS LISTED
Besides his wife, Mr. Rudy is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Rudy, RR 1, Hespeler: two brothers, Arthur of Waterloo and Wilfred of Edmonton; three sisters, Mrs. Homer (Anna) Burkhardt, RR 5, Galt: Mrs. Melvin (Margaret) Bearinger, RR 3, Waterloo and Mrs. Jesse (Lucile) Markle, RR 1, Hespeler. Mrs. Rudy's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Sydney Lichti, live at 236 Alexandra Ave., Waterloo. The former Erma Lichti, Mrs. Rudy was once employed at the John Forsyth Ltd. plant in Waterloo. The bodies are at the Harry K. Stager Funeral Home, 566 Queen St., Preston, until Friday night. Funeral service will be conducted, Saturday, at 2:30 p.m., at the Wanner Mennonite Church, Beaverdale (near Hespeler). Rev. Merle Shantz will officiate.

27137 1871 - Henry Rufert is staying with Elizabeth Wettneben. Henry Rufert
 
27138 RUFERT. - Bro. Henry Rufert was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., Feb. 27, 1860; died at his home near Mayton, Alta., Feb. 11, 1918; aged 57y. 11m. 11d. In 1880 he was united in matrimony to Fannie Hambling. To this union were born 11 children, one preceded to the spirit world. He leaves to mourn his departure a loving wife, 4 sons, 6 daughters,, and 12 grandchildren. About 14 years ago he united with the Mennonite Church and always expressed a desire to do the Lord's will. He was about his work in the usual health and after partaking of a hearty dinner, walked to his bedroom where he dropped over dead. This brought very forcibly to our minds the teaching of Christ, "Be ye therefore also ready, for at such an hour as ye think not, the Son of man cometh." Funeral was held at the Mayton Mennonite Church, conducted by J.K. Lehman. Burial in the Mayton Cemetery.1a

27153 George Rumpel, Mayor 1898.

Mr. George Rumpel occupied the mayor's chair very acceptably during the year 1898. The year previously he had been reeve. His term as Chief Magistrate was marked by the purchase of the water works system, which has proved Berlin's best public utility. Its purchase was opposed by many citizens and a heated compaign preceded its taking over. Mr. Rumpel has since served on both the Water Commission and the Park Board. He was born in Saxony, Germany and came to Berlin in 1871, and soon after established the Berlin Felt Boot Co. and has proved himself to be an able business man. As a citizen, he is esteemed for his many excellent qualities.1a

__________________


GEORGE RUMPEL.

George Rumpel, president of the Berlin Felt Boot Company, is numbered among the worthy Canadian citizens that Germany has furnished to the Dominion, his birth having occurred in Saxony on the 10th of May, 1850. His parents were Frederick and Fredericka (Rick) Rumpel, also natives of Germany, and the father was a furniture manufacturer of Saxony.

In accordance with the laws of his native land, George Rumpel attended school between the ages of six and fourteen years and then entered business life as an apprentice to the shoemaker's trade, serving a three years term of indenture. He afterward traveled and worked as a journeyman for three years, being employed in twelve different factories after becoming a master workman. Hoping to enjoy better business opportunities in the new world, where wages were generally higher and competition not so great, he came to Ontario in 1871, settling in Hamilton, where he secured employment in the McPherson shoe factory. In 1875 he came to Berlin and for two years was in the employ of the Berlin Felt Shoe Company, while in 1879 he bought out the business, which he has since conducted. The enterprise is one of importance here, furnishing employment to about one hundred and seventy-five operatives. In this connection he carries on three factories and the plant covers an area of about ten acres, while the trade extends throughout the Dominion. The business has constantly grown and developed under the able management and keen discrimination of Mr. Rumpel, who has been watchful of every opportunity pointing to success and has utilized every means to the best possible advantage. He has kept his factory equipped with the latest improved machinery and he has always made it a point to pay good living wages, which has received from his employees faithful and valuable service.

In 1872 Mr. Rumpel was married to Miss Minna Hartman, a daughter of the late Hans Hartman, who was a native of Saxony, Germany. Four children grace this union: Oscar, Olga, Walter and Hilda. Mr. Rumpel is a member of the Masonic lodge, the Royal Arcanum, the Maccabees tent and the Ancient Order of United Workmen. In politics he is a Conservative and has usually refused the public preferment offered him. He has, however, filled some local positions, being a member of the council for eight years, while in 1897 he was reeve and in 1898 was mayor of Berlin. During his administration in the last named position he succeeded in securing municipal ownership of the water works, which prior to that time had been operated by private individuals. He is now chairman of the water works commission and is a member of the park board, on which he has served as chairman for several years. He is likewise a member of the Board of Trade and has done effective work in behalf of public welfare and progress for a long period. He belongs to St. Peter's Lutheran Church, in which he is serving as deacon, and his humanitarian spirit is frequently manifest in his liberal contributions to church and to charity. His beautiful residence called Forest Hill, situated on King and Cameron streets, is considered the finest home in Berlin, while Mr. Rumpel has gained a position of prominence and distinction that justly entitles him to a place in this publication. Although his career has not been filled with thrilling incidents probably no life history published in this volume can better serve to demonstrate to young men the power of honesty and integrity, of diligence and perseverance in insuring success. Aside from his business interests his life has been actuated by unselfish motives, prompted by patriotism and guided by truth and justice.1a

27157 KITCHENER \emdash Charles Sheppard waited for the little light to come on before he pulled the big switch that brought electricity from Niagara Falls into town for the first time. It was Oct. 11, 1910. On that day, Berlin (now Kitchener) became the first Ontario municipality to get hydroelectric power in long-distance transmission lines from the falls.

Sheppard was the manager at the Factory Road (now West Avenue) transformer station. Several blocks away, about 8,000 people gathered in and around the old Queen Street Arena where the official ceremony was held. "Back then this was one of the biggest events ever held in Berlin," Rych Mills, a local historian, said."They had newspaper coverage from all over Canada," Mills, who wrote about the event in his book Kitchener (Berlin) 1880-1960, said. Inside the dark and crowded arena a young woman named Hilda Rumpel carried a small cushion. On the cushion was a switch. Ontario premier James Whitney and Adam Beck \emdash the founder of Ontario Hydro \emdash pushed the switch. That turned on the light in the transformer station and was the signal for Sheppard to throw the big switch. Hundreds of light bulbs sparked to life in the arena and the crowd cheered.1a

The marriage of Miss Olga Rumpel, eldest daughter of Mr. George Rumpel of Berlin, and Mr. H. D. McKellar on Tuesday, was an event which had been eagerly anticipated by all in the entire town. It took place at 2:00 o'clock in the afternoon in St. Peter's Lutheran Church in the presence of more than one hundred guests and a crowd which not only filled the large church, but also stretched out as far as the street. After the marriage ceremony, the young couple held a reception in Mr. Rumpel's beautifully decorated residence, and then departed at 5:30 for New York and other points, east. The quantity of beautiful and costly gifts, which had been presented to the bride by friends and relatives exceeds anything of the sort previously seen in Berlin. The wedding refreshments served in the course of the afternoon were prepared and served by a Toronto firm. A Toronto gardener had also decorated the house. As well, the myrtle wreath of the bride was a shoot from a branch that her mother had carried in her hands on her wedding-day.1a

27169 POPULAR FORMER OFFICER OF 11TH GIVES LIFE FOR HIS COUNTRY.

FOUR OTHER GALT MEN ARE REPORTED TODAY AS WOUNDED.


Killed in Action.

Capt. J. Frank Welland.

Wounded.

Bombardier L. V. McCreith, M. M.
Pte. Ernest W. A. Rundstaller
Pte. David Whitla
Pte. Albert C. Spurgeon

Galt today has a heavy toll of casualties. The community was shocked at the receipt of news of the death in action on Nov. 5th of Capt. Joseph Frank Welland, only son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Welland, 22 Glebe street, and an exceptionally popular officer.

Most of today's casualties were sustained during the first week in November and it is presumed they occurred in the fighting in which the Canadians took part in the vicinity of Passchendaele.

Much sympathy is felt for the bereaved family of the late Capt. Welland, whose demise so early in life is regretted by all. In giving his life for his country in the fight for righteousness, the late Capt. Frank Welland displayed the true spirit of a soldier. Had he been agreeable he would have been sent home in February last. The late officer was a sufferer from asthma and after being engaged as an instructor in England for some months, and his opportunity came to go to France, he doctored himself up for the asthma and was successful in eluding the Medical Board and got away to France. It was during the first week in May that Capt. Welland crossed the channel and went to the firing line. He had just recently been in London and Scotland on a well-earned leave and had been back in France only three weeks when he met his death.

The late Capt. Welland was in his 25th year and was born near Galt on a farm. The family moved into Galt when he was young and he had spent practically all his life here. He was educated at the Dickson school and on graduating from the Collegiate Institute took a school teacher's course at the Hamilton Normal school. On obtaining his certificate he taught school for a short time at Freelton and then became assistant principal of St. Andrew's school in this city, which position he had very capably filled for a year and a half when he enlisted with the 111th Battalion. Deceased had been very successful at his chosen profession and had a most promising career.

His Military Career.

It was in 1913 that he entered upon his military career with his cousin, Capt. Fred Welland, now home after being wounded. He spent his summer vacation that year taking a cadet instructor's course at London and while in that city enlisted as a private with the 7th Fusiliers. When he returned to Galt after the holidays he became attached to the 39th Regiment, H. L. I. of C., and took out a lieutenant's commission, later qualifying for his captaincy and also as a field officer. When the 111th Battalion was being organized, he joined this unit along with his cousin, Capt. Fred Welland, and was placed second in command of A Company. He proved a most efficient officer, beloved by his men and greatly devoted to his work. He had specialized in bombing in England and was complimented by the Brigadier in England on the work of his bombing department. He was employed as an instructor all the time he was in England and on going to France had held various important positions as bombing officer, acting adjutant and for a time was attached to the Intelligence Department. In the same unit, to which the late Capt. Welland was attached in France there was another former 111th officer, Lieut. Yates of Preston.

Only Monday, three letters were received from the deceased officer, two by his family and one by his cousin, Capt. Fred Welland, whose letter was written from Scotland before he returned to France.

The death of the late Capt. Welland is mourned greatly by his cousin, Capt. Fred Welland, as the two cousins were greatly attached to each other and were more like brothers. They were associated with each other in practically everything they undertook, going to school together, and then enlisting in the same battalion.

Deceased was a member of the Baptist church, and was also identified with the local Y.M.C.A. Besides his grief stricken parents, there survive four sister, Misses Isabelle and Ida, nurses in St. Louis; Elizabeth and Stella at home, the former a teach at Manchester school and the latter also a teacher, but at present attending Business College.

M. M. Hero Wounded.

Mrs. Rolland McCreith, Spruce street, was notified this morning that her youngest son, 84169 Bombardier Leo Vernon McCreith, M. M., who enlisted with the 16th Battery, Canadian Field Artillery at Guelph, shortly after the war broke out, had been admitted to the 6th British Red Cross Hospital at Etaples on Nov. 1, suffering from a gunshot wound in the right foot. Bombardier McCreith went overseas with the second contingent and has been in France nearly three years. Some months ago he was awarded the Military Medal for conspicuous bravery in the field. This is the first time he has figured in the casualty list. This father and only brother are also in uniform.

Three 111th Boys.

The other three casualties reported this morning are all former members of the 111th.

730,621, Pte. Ernest William Alexander Rundstaller, reported admitted to the First Field Ambulance Depot on Nov. 5th, with a gunshot wound in the right thigh and hand, is the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Rundstaller of 74 Haddington street. He is a tailor by trade, single, and a former member of the 29th Regiment.

Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Whitla, 184 Water street north, learned that their son, 730,110, Pte. David Whitla, had received a gunshot wound in the back and was a patient in the 6th General Hospital, Rouen, admitted on Oct. 31st. The wounded soldier is a brother of Lance-Corporal Wm. Whitla, who enlisted with the first battalion and who was awarded the Military Cross and who was the first Galt man to win a decoration.

The fifth casualty is 730,571, Pte. Albert Charles Spurgeon, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Sprugeon, 15 Summit avenue, who is reported in the First Field Ambulance Depot on November 6th with a shrapnel wound in the leg. The wounded soldier is only 24 years of age and was formerly employed at the C.M.C, works.

In reply to a query, Mrs. William Cyples, corner of Cambridge street and Macadamized road, was notified this morning that her husband, 730,045, Lance-Corporal Wm. Cyples, reported wounded some time ago, was doing very well at the Duchess of Connaught Red Cross Hospital.

27179 There is a little story Louis Runstedler once told me that I would like to tell to you.

Louis was brought up to speak the German language but after he left home and was associated with people who spoke only English, he more or less lost the knack of speaking freely in German although he could always understand it.

One day the old man, Limpert, came into the Blacksmith Shop at Jardine's and asked Louis some question in the German tongue which Louis of course understood, but when it came to replying he could not just get hold of the proper German words so he replied in English which of course Mr. Limpert understood.

This German-English dialogue went on until Mr. Limpert had the information he wanted, and then he courteously thanked Louis in German and took his departure. After he had gone only a few steps however he stopped, turned and came back to Louis and this time in English, he told Mr. Runstedler: "Louis, you should, of yourself be dam well ashamed." And then he went his way.1a

___________________

A gloom was cast over the village yesterday when it became known that death had visited the house of Mr. John H. Ruppel, Clerk of the Village, and had claimed his second daughter, Clara Vestella, a bright young lady whose good Christian deportment and affectionate disposition had rendered her a general favorite. Although deceased had been ailing somewhat of late, nothing serious was anticipated until several weeks ago, she became afflicted with an uncommonly severe case of Anemia, which in spite of the best of nursing and medical attendance resulted fatally. She was ending her 20th year, was socially well connected and will [be] greatly missed, not only at home but also by her companions. The bereaved family have the sympathy of a large circle of friends in their sad bereavement.2a

27189 Mr. George H. Ruppel, is a son of Post Master Ruppel. He was born in Elmira in 1863 and has lived in his native village since. He attended the Elmira Public School also the Lutheran Separate School, taught by Mr. Gottfried Ernst. He commenced his mercantile career behind the counter of his father's store. Later he became a member of the firm of Ruppel Bros. After dissolution of this firm he clerked in the general stores of Mr. J. Uffelman and Dunke & Co. In 1896 he embarked into the grocery business and has made it a success. The White Grocery is a popular resort for all who are in search of fresh, up-to-date groceries, condiments and fruits. He also handles a full line of provisions, crockery, toys and fancy goods. As the village of Elmira is increasing in population and her citizens assume more elaborate tastes, so this store caters to their desires, while the more ordinary wants of the farming community are not overlooked. The White Grocery is one of the busiest places in Elmira. [The White Grocery was on the southwest corner of Arthur and Church Streets.]1a

27193 Promment Citizen Succumbs To Complications Following Pneumonia Attack

Offered Brave Struggle

Daughter Of Former Postmaster Here; Funeral To Be Held Sunday Afternoon

Fearlessly facing death with a true Christian heart, Ida E. Ruppel, beloved wife of John S. Weichel, prominent Elmira merchant, succumbed to complications following a severe attack of pneumonia two years ago, at her late home, 24 Park Street, this (Thursday) morning about 7 o'clock.

News of her death cast a pall of gloom over the community where she had lived all her life and to which she had endeared herself by her fine womanly qualities.

Death came peacefully. The heart which once had beaten so strongly in thoughtful consideration of others, fluttered, wavered and finally stopped as the spirit departed. Her passing ended an illness which started about eight years ago with an attack of influenza. She recovered somewhat but never regained her former strength and about two years ago was again forced to her bed by pneumonia. For the past year she had been very ill but about a month ago her condition became acute. Although fighting an unequal battle she bravely struggled, but gradually weakened.

Bids Family Farewell

Believing that death was near she summoned the members of her family to her bedside on Sunday, and there bade them a fond farewell. Her mind appeared exceptionally active, her facilities unimpaired and her words on this occasion, again revealed the kindliness and thoughtfulness which so inspired her during her active lifetime.

She rallied somewhat Sunday, but lapsed into periods of unconsciousness, apparently the result of extreme weakness. At times during the week she rallied and a faint smile or movement of the hand indicated that she recognized those grouped around her bedside. On Wednesday the family gathered close as death again seemed imminent. Throughout the day and night close vigil was kept and early this morning death came.

Daughter of Former P.M.

The late Mrs. Weichel who was in her 68th year, was the daughter of the late John and Mary Ruppel, the former of whom was postmaster here for many years. About 1890 she became the bride of John S. Weichel. A faithful member of St. Paul's Lutheran church, she formerly was actively identified with the various church organizations and her untimely death will mean a decided loss to the congregation.

In addition to her husband she is survived by one daughter, Marie; and four sons, Charles, Oscar, Hilbert and Harry, all of Elmira. One sister, Mrs. (Rev.) J. C. Borth, of Staten Island, N.Y., and six brothers also survive: Oscar, John H., and George, Elmira; Charles, Buffalo; Henry, Tavistock; and Otto, of Hamilton.
The funeral will take place on Sunday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, from her late residence to St. Paul's Lutheran church and thence to Elmira Cemetery for interment, with Rev. Messrs. Gallmeier and Rolph, officiating.

27195 POSTMASTER RUPPEL, DEAD

Last Saturday death claimed the oldest citizen of Elmira in the person of Mr. John Ruppel, Postmaster, who up to about a year since was actively engaged in his work although he had, at the time of his death reached the age of 83 years and 17 days. He was a native of Hessen, Germany and came to Elmira from that country in 1852 when 25 years of age.

Here he spent the remainder of his life. During his early manhood he was engaged in the manufacture of potash, later in making brick just west of Elmira on the farm now owned by Mr. Philip Beisel. He manufactured the brick of which St. Pauls Lutheran parsonage, the residences of Mr. Conrad Hahn that of Mrs. Koerber and the Ontario House were built. Soon he engaged as clerk in Mr. Isaac Wenger's Store and became a partner in the business. Later this partnership was dissolved and each of the partners continued business on his own account. Mr. Wenger in the store now occupied by the Otto Estate and Mr. Ruppel in a frame building where now stand the stores of Messrs A. Werner and Jury & Amy. Here he conducted an extensive trade for many years and later removed to Dunke's block where he ended his mercantile career. After the death of Mr. Peter Winger he was appointed Post Master and held the office up to the time of his demise although the infirmities of old age during the last year asserted themselves so strongly that he was unable to give the business his personal attention. During his 60 years' residence here he made many friends. Being of a cheerful native and an obliging disposition he was very popular. He was generous to a fault. Several terms he was a representative in the Woolwich Township Council. He also held other honorary positions. He was one of the original members of St. Pauls Lutheran Congregation which was organized in 1860, and of which he has been a consistent member since. He was married to Maria Huehn, of Heidelberg who survives him. His union was blessed with 11 children, 3 of whom have departed this life. The remaining ones are: Mr. J. H., Elmira Village Clerk, Mrs. (Rev. Borth), of Staten Island, N. Y., Henry of Tavistock, George of Elmira, Charles of Buffalo, N.Y., Otto, of Hamilton, Oscar and Mrs. J. S. Weichel, of Elmira.

Sixty years of residence in the same village, closely connected with the growth of the place and in the years of his prime always identified with the every forward movement; he had made for himself a place in the community which only such privileges would admit one to occupy. He was one of the land marks of the community and will be missed, not only by hi family but also by many others who have been accustomed to associate him with the history of the Village.

He leaves a widow, 8 children, 32 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. The funeral took place on Tuesday and was attended by a large number of friends who had come from far and near to pay their last tribute to his memory.1a

A gentleman to whom much credit is due as an instructor in music and as a furtherer of its interests in Elmira, is Mr. John H. Ruppel, who was the director of the Elmira Band and leader of the "Maennerchor" and St. Paul's Choir for many years. His many other duties as Village Clerk and Conveyancer forced him to resign some of these charges. However, he still holds the position of organist at St. Paul's Church. Mr. Ruppel has been clerk of Elmira ever since incorporation. He has discharged his duties with great ability and a good deal of tact, and has been a very decided help to the council, throughout his term of office. He is the oldest son of Post Master Ruppel, was born and educated in Elmira and has lived here all his life.1a

Half-Century of Wedded Bliss Nears For Mr. and Mrs. John H. Ruppel

Old Town Official and His Helpmate Receiving Felicitations of Friends and Relatives Upon Occasion of Golden Wedding Anniversary; Career of Mr. Ruppel Indelibly Linked With Progress of Elmira; Lover of Flowers and Music

Throngs of friends, relatives and business associates tomorrow will join Mr. John R. Ruppel and his loving helpmate in observing their 50th year of married life. Truly, this is an anniversary that it is not every couple's good fortune to stage, but when it is linked up with the other records or near records that can be justly claimed deserves more than a casual comment.

In addition to having been married a half-century and boasting a family of 11 children of whom then are still living, Mr. Ruppel has been Elmira's only municipal clerk, filling the post for 40 years without a break. In the last few years he has had added to his responsibilities the duties of town treasurer. Probably no one in Elmira has a more extensive and valuable knowledge of the town and its people than Mr. Ruppel. That he will retain his good health and be able to carry on for many years to come is the sincere trust of his many good friends.

Father a Pioneer

Mr. Ruppel has lived practically every minute of his life in Elmira and he has seen it grow from a struggling little hamlet to the important place it now occupies. He was born here on May 31, 1857, the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Ruppel. The former came here from the old country when Elmira boasted but a few scattered homes and was known as West Woolwich P.O. The father built up a splendid mercantile business and later became postmaster. The son following in the parental footsteps, spent 15 years at the counter, but later was attracted to municipal work and when Elmira was incorporated as a village in 1877 he was appointed to the clerkship.

Lover of Flowers and Music

Mr. Ruppel finds relaxation in gardening and music. A boyhood chum of the late Dr. Vogt of Mendelsohn Choir fame, Mr. Ruppel still remembers when he was four years old. The Vogt youngster was a year younger and Mr. Ruppel recalls he played the mouth organ while young Vogt danced on the street.

Four 30 years a member of the E. M. S. Band, Mr. Ruppel could play practically any brass instrument, although he majored on the cornet and handled the baton for 19 years. For 38 years he was organist and choirmaster of St. Paul's Lutheran Church.

In addition to his municipal duties, Mr. Ruppel has acted as notary public, conveyance and insurance agent for 40 years.

Last Thursday death claimed one of our oldest and most highly-respected citizens in the person of Mr. Karl Ruppel. Although suffering from the effects of a light paralytic stroke for a number of years, deceased was able to be about until last February. Since then he was confined to his bed until death released him. He was born in Eila, Hessen, Germany [German states], in 1838. He came to Canada and settled in Elmira in 1864. Here he resided 61 years, practically grew up with the town and identifying himself with its growth and interests. Having enjoyed a good education in Germany he was able to make himself useful in may ways. Earlier he became identified with St. Paul's Lutheran congregation of which he was a consistent member throughout his life and in which he served long and faithfully as secretary. When the Canada District of the Lutheran Synod of Missouri, Ohio, and other states was organized, he became interested in its welfare and was later appointed Treasurer. He performed the exacting duties of this office faithfully as long as his health permitted. He was a carpenter by trade. When still a young man he took contracts for the erection of buildings. Later, in company with Mr. Hy. Fenner, he acquired the sash and door factory now owned by Messrs. Heimbecher & Jung. This was conducted for many years in connection with an undertaking and furniture business. In the year 1883 deceased erected the block now occupied by Mr. A. Werner and Messrs. Jury & Amy. After disposing of his interests in the factory of which he had become sole owner, he continued business in his block on Arthur Street. Later he turned his stock in trade over to his son, Mr. John S. Ruppel and became assistant in the Elmira Post Office of which his brother, John, was then postmaster. During the last few years he lived retired. In 1854 he was married to Elizabeth Schnarr, of Erbsville. With her he had seven children, four of whom pre-deceased him. He leaves to mourn the loss of a kind and provident father and husband, a widow, one son, and two daughters. In his prime, deceased was a an of energy, straightforward, honorable and reliable. He had the courage of his convictions and lived an honorable, Christian life. He was a useful citizen and was at one time a member of the Village Council. His name will long be associated with the history and growth of Elmira. He had reached the age of 77 years. His remains were interred in the Elmira Union Cemetery last Sunday afternoon, the local pastor of St. Pauls Church, Rev. R. A. Eifert, officiating. Rev. Boese of Berlin, president of the Canada District of the Lutheran Synod of Missouri, Ohio and other States, also gave a short address in recognition of the faithful servitude rendered by the deceased to that organization.2a

She was a lifelong member of St. Paul's Church, taking an extremely active part in all of its endeavours particularly the ladies' Aid of which she was president for almost twenty years.

She was blessed with an outstanding soprano voice which will long be remembered by her family and many friends. She was soloist in the St. Paul's choir for 55 years having sung in this choir from the time she was twelve years old until her health would no longer permit.

The untimely death of her husband in 1944 and her son Edward in 1945 contributed to the serious break in her health which necessitated a major operation in 1947 from which she never completely recovered. A severe arthritic condition combined shortly after to bring about a gradual decline which resulted in her death.

She was an example and an inspiration to her entire family and large circle of friends and is survived by three children, Laura and Otto of Elmira and Esther, wife of Mr. A. H. Borchardt of Lester Prairie, Minn., with the exception of her sister, Stella, who died in early youth, she is survived by all of her ten brothers and sisters, Percy, Louis, Norman and Lauretta (Mrs. A.

27210 Land for a graveyard near Crosshill was provided by Elisha Rush in 1851. Soon, the farmer/carpenter was overseeing the erection of a small Wesleyan Methodist Church beside the burial ground but the congregation lasted only until 1889. However, unlike Frost's graveyard, Rushes Cemetery is still in use today at 1915 Hutchison Road, one kilometre south of Streicher Line between Crosshill and Wellesley. The sign calls it Rushes Cemetery but other documentation refers to Rush's or Rush. Why the plural caught on instead of the possessive is perplexing.

27235 SAINT TERESA OF AVILA ROMAN CATHOLIC CEMETERY

This was the original churchyard of St. Theresa's parish, Elmira. The church was moved into the town, although the foundations of the original church can still be seen in the cemetery. The spelling of the name of the parish has changed through the years, but for some time now it has been established that the patron saint of the parish is saint Teresa of Avila and this spelling is the proper one now. The cemetery is found at Lot 92, German company Tract, north of the town on the Alma-Arthur road. It sits on a gentle hill to the west of the road and is well kept, dominated by a large whitecross. Two sides of the cemetery are bordered by lilac trees planted seventy or eighty years ago, which add a great deal to thebeauty of the spot. An incomplete deed indicates that the land was deeded to the diocese by Joseph Ruth in 1853, but this is disputed by other documents.1a

1aSt. Teresa of Avila Roman Catholic Cemetery, Waterloo Region Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society transcript

________________________________

St. Teresa of Avila Roman Catholic Church
Begun: 1851

Prior to 1848, as a mission of New Germany (Maryhill), this area of Woolwich was served by missionaries from New Germany who celebrated Mass in homes in the area once or twice a year. Construction was begun on a small frame church in 1848 on an acre of land north of Elmira. (This land which was purchased from Joseph Ruth, is now St. Teresa's Cemetery.) However, it was not until 1851 in the time of Father John Holzer of New Germany that the church was finished; it was dedicated on the second Sunday after Easter in that year. During the 1860s and 1870s the church was attached to St. Clements.

Land in town was purchased on June 14, 1888 from John Ratz for a new brick church which was built and completed in 1889 during the ministry of Rev. Stephen Foerster of New Germany. The first frame church was dismantled in 1905. A new church was built in 1991-1992 on Flamingo Drive just south of the school; the old yellow brick church was listed for sale in March 1992.
Monthly services were conducted from 1889-1915 by Rev. Foerster, and by priests from St. Jerome's in Kitchener from 1915-1922. A Mission of Macton then from 1922-1924, the congregation finally received its first resident priest, in the person of Father J.J. Arnold, on July 24, 1924.1a

27244 ABOUT US...A history of looking forward

After the Great War and during the Roaring 20's, a small retail hardware shop was opened in the town of Galt, Ontario, Canada, by J.H. Shellard Rutherford. Right from the beginning, innovation and foresight distinguished Rutherford from his competitors. Anticipating a need, J.H. was one of the first in the region to tap into the growing demand for electrical products by stocking a wide variety of electrical goods and supplies.In 1962, Jack Rutherford took the reins from his father, changing the direction of the company from retail hardware to architectural hardware distribution. He introduced to the Canadian marketplace a more global offering by importing innovative, high-quality products which he designed specifically for the North American market.1a

Rutherford, the Township of North Dumfries loses one of its oldest, best-known and most highly esteemed residents, as well as one of the most painstaking and efficient public officials the municipality has ever had. During his long, continuous term as assessor, the deceased had frequently visited every home in the township and was personally known to everybody within the confines of North Dumfries, all of whom will regard his demise as very closely allied to a personal affliction. His long and faithful association with the Presbyterian Church in Ayr, both as a member and an office holder, especially as a prominent member of the Session for many years, also added luster to his usefulness and gave him a still water sphere in which to exercise his excellent qualities of head and heart.

Thomas Rutherford
 
27254 The original settler of Lot 35 Concession A, was Thomas Rutherford . He was born in the village of Ancrum in Scotland, near the town of Jedburgh, in 1812. His father was William Rutherford , gardener and gatekeeper for Sir William Scott the owner of the Ancrum estate. Before he left Scotland in 1834 at the age of 22, he had worked for the Earl of Minto on the Minto Estate, four miles up the Teviot River Valley from Ancrum.

In 1834 he came to Galt, Ontario, with John Telfer who was recruiting settlers in the Border Country for William Dickson who owned most of the land in the Galt area at that time. Thomas also came out with his Uncle Hugh Rutherford and his family, among whom was Elizabeth, afterwards wife of Robert Elliot the original settler on Lot 38 Concession B, on the Lake Shore Line ( the Don Cianci farm ).

For the next six years he was in the butchering trade while in Galt, but his first job on arriving in Galt was burying the dead of the cholera epidemic that was sweeping that part of Ontario in 1834.

In 1840 he was hired by John Telfer to help him in his endeavours as Land Agent in opening up the land to settlement in the village of Sydenham ( Owen Sound ). In the winter of 1840-41, Telfer went back to Galt and left Thomas in charge of the government stores by himself. From 1842 to 1845, he ran a hotel in Owen Sound near the market square on the land now occupied by Legates Furniture. In 1845 both he and John Telfer came out to what is now Leith, Ontario; Telfer to take up 425 acres on part of which Leith now stands, and to build the local grist mill on what is now Telfers Creek.

Thomas took up Lot 35 Concession A, paying 45 pounds for it, and got his deed on the ninth of January , 1846, in the Township of Sydenham, in the County of Waterloo, in the District of Wellington, as this area was known at this time. He had made the long trip to Galt in the middle of winter to get his deed with William Sibbald, the original settler on Lot 36 Concession A, his immediate neighbour.
On March 1, 1844, he married Catherine MacGregor whose family had come out from Ardeonaig on Loch Tay in Perthshire, Scotland, in 1841. They were the original settlers on the north half of Lot 7 Concession 12 Sydenham, and this farm is still owned by a member of this family in the person of Jack MacGregor.1a

27265 Train Crew Exonerated At Ruthig Inquest

The inquest to determine the cause of the death of Louis A. Ruthig, who was found near the C. N. R. tracks about three miles west of New Hamburg Monday morning of last week was held in the Shakespeare Hall on Monday evening. The hall was packed to the door, many having standing room only.

About sixteen witnesses were examined and according to the evidence the only facts brought out were that he left his home about 5.45 on Sunday morning to patrol the C. N. R. right-of-way between New Hamburg and Shakespeare, that he was last seen alive about 9 o'clock in the morning when he called at the home of Mr. Peter Horst where he got a glass of cider and returned to his duty. His cap was found on the fender of a freight at Shakespeare. This train came through New Hamburg about 5.15 p.m. The victim's watch stopped at 5.25. This would be about the time the train reached the spot where the body was found.

After a short deliberation the jury brought in the following verdict:

"We the jury find that Louis Ruthig came to his death about 5.15 on the afternoon of May 4th, 1930, by being struck by a train on the C. N. R. right-of-way between New Hamburg and Shakespeare and that no blame for the accident is attached to the train crew."

It was the general opinion that the unfortunate man was killed by a train. He appears to have had no enemy and the thought that his death may have been from some other cause was not entertained in the least. The money he carried was found on his person. The disappearance of the hammer which he carried is still a mystery, but in all liklihood [sic] this will also be found in time.

27268 Breslau United Brethren in Christ Church

Begun: c.1866 Closed: c.1893

Part of the Waterloo Circuit of the United Brethren in Christ, the congregation was added to the Circuit in 1866-1867 when the pastors were Revs. A.B. Sherk, D.B. Sherk , Henry Krupp and G. Rutt. At the Quarterly Conference of the United Brethren in Christ on July 18, 1868 approval was given for the purchase of a site for a church at Breslau. The church was built later in that year. Discussion at the Quarterly Conference on February 10, 1883 concerned a refusal to transfer a lease from the Mennonites to the Lutherans for use of the church building - whether because the church premises were being shared with the Mennonites or because the United Brethren in Christ was no longer an active congregation is not known.1a

27279 Hawkesville Methodist Church Begun: c.1850 Closed: 1922

When the First Canadian Primitive Methodist Conference was held in Brampton from April 27-May 1, 1854, the Peel and Wellesley Mission was ministered to by Revs. Isaac Ryder, T. Fox and John Towler (Hopper 1904:158). Other early ministers were William Bee (1855-1856), C. Gilmore (1857-1858), and W. Lomas (1858-1859) - each working with John Towler who was associated with Peel and Wellesley, and then Hawkesville, from 1854-1876.

The Peel and Wellesley Mission became a Circuit in 1863, but in 1865 that Circuit was divided as the result of a resolution passed at the 12th Annual Conference of the Church. It was resolved "that Peel and Wellesley be divided, and that the furniture of the said station shall be the property of the Peel Circuit, Hawksville [sic] becoming a Mission." From that time Peel and Hawkesville remained separate missions within the Guelph District.

In 1884 the Methodist Church of Canada was formed from a union of all Methodist churches. It is interesting to note that the Minutes of the First Session of the Guelph Annual Conference of the Methodist Church in June 1884 make reference to the "late Primitive Methodist Church" in Peel and Hawkesville. Hawkesville later (1886) was a separate Mission in the Galt District, Guelph Conference of the Methodist Church until 1890 when it was amalgamated with Linwood into the Wellesley Mission. The 1897 Annual Meeting of the Galt District placed Linwood, Hawkesville and Bethlehem [sic] into a newly created Linwood Mission.

A brick church was built in 1864. The church closed in 1922 and the building was dismantled; some of the congregation then joined St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church.

Linwood
Primitive Methodist

Linwood Methodist Church

Begun: c.1854 Closed: c.1920

It is said that this congregation was on Hall's Circuit originally and may have been known as Rev. Hall's Church. Rev. Isaac Ryder of the Peel and Wellesley Mission, who was the missionary at the time of the First Annual Conference of the Primitive Methodist Connexion in 1854, was the first pastor. The Peel and Wellesley Mission was divided in 1865 and the Wellesley Mission became known as the Hawkesville Mission. In 1866 Hawkesville was supplied by Rev. William Reid and two superannuated pastors, Revs. John Towler and Isaac Ryder. Rev. Ryder, who made his home in Linwood, died in 1875.

The last recorded membership of the congregation as Primitive Methodist was in 1882; in 1884 the Primitive Methodists joined with the other Methodist groups to form one organization, the Methodist Church of Canada. Linwood was moved from the Listowel District to the Galt District of the Guelph Conference in 1886; the membership of the congregation at the time was 96. Linwood was considered a separate mission in the Galt District until 1890 when it was amalgamated with Hawkesville into the Wellesley Mission. The 1898 Annual Meeting recorded the creation of the Linwood Mission which was to include Linwood, Hawkesville and Bethlehem.

Begun: c.1850 Closed:

When the First Canadian Primitive Methodist Conference was held at Brampton from April 27-May 1, 1854 the Peel and Wellesley Mission was ministered to by Revs. Isaac Ryder, T. Fox and John Towler, the last-mentioned missionary described as "superannuated" (Hopper 1904:158). The Conference was informed that the "old Peel and Wellesley Mission is worthy of particular mention, especially the Bethel appointment in Pilkington, now a part of the Alma Circuit" (Ibid:209), which would lead one to believe that the mission existed prior to 1854. Other early ministers were William Bee (1855-1856), C. Gilmore (1857-1858) and W. Lomas (1858-1859), each working with John Towler (1854-1876).

In 1863 Peel and Wellesley Mission became a Circuit and in 1865 that Circuit was divided as the result of the adoption of a resolution at the 12th Annual Conference of the Church in 1865. It was resolved "that Peel and Wellesley be divided, and that the furniture of said station shall be the property of the Peel Circuit; Hawkesville becoming a Mission." One would assume from this that earlier references to Wellesley were in fact references to Hawkesville. Future meetings referred to Peel and Hawkesville as separate entities.

The Methodist Church of Canada was formed in 1884 from the union of all Methodist groups in Canada including the Primitive Methodist Church. According to the Minutes of the First Annual Meeting of the Galt District, Guelph Conference of the Methodist Church, the Linwood church had a membership of 129 and Hawkesville had 71. In 1890 the two congregations were amalgamated into one mission called the Wellesley Mission. In 1898 the name was changed to Linwood Mission.

27280 George Sterling Ryerson. The medical profession of Canada has lost one of its outstanding members in the death on May 20th, of Major General George Sterling Ryerson. Dr. Ryerson had been in his usual health and vigour until May 1, 1925, when he suddenly developed symptoms of intestinal obstruction which examination showed to be associated with a large abdominal tumour. Operation undertaken for his relief discovered a moderate sized intra peritoneal lipoma which was removed, but in addition there was a large retro peritoneal sarcoma which could not be removed on account of its Wide attachment to the posterior abdominal wall, and a week later he suddenly collapsed and died within a few hours.

The late General Ryerson was born in Toronto January 21, 1855, the son of George and Isabella (Sterling) Ryerson, and nephew of the late Rev. Dr. Egerton Ryerson. He received his preliminary education at the Galt Grammar School and studied medicine at Trinity Medical College, Toronto, Edinburgh University, and in Vienna. He began practice in Toronto in 1880 and two years later was appointed Professor of Ophthalmology in Trinity Medical College and retained the same post in the University of Toronto after amalgamation of the medical colleges in 1901. He served for many years on the staff of the Toronto General Hospital and later on the Toronto Western Hospital. In addition to the practice of his profession, Dr. Ryerson took an active interest in military matters, in politics, the St. John 's Ambulance Association and the

Red Cross, as well as in various medical organizations. During his military career he was surgeon to the Royal Grenadiers, Toronto; was through the Fenian Raid, 1870; the North West Rebellion, 1885; was Red Cross Commissioner during the South African war, 1900, and the Great War, 1914-1918. His military services were recognized by his advancement to the rank of Colonel-in-chief and Honorary Major-General C.A.M.C. He represented East Toronto as conservative member in the Ontario Legislature, 1892-98. He was a past president of he Toronto Clinical Society, the AEsculapian Club, Canadian Red Cross Society, St. John 's Ambulance Association, Association of Medical Officers Canadian Militia and U.E.L. Association. He was a frequent contributor to current medical literature, besides being author of The Soldier and the Surgeon and Aftermath of Revolution" and "Looking Backward'" published during the past year.

Dr. Ryerson was a patriotic Canadian, an Imperialist, an active Freemason, an Anglican and a Conservative. He was a man of untiring energy, of good executive ability and possessed social qualities which made him an interesting companion and won him a host of friends. H. B. ANDERSON1a

She liv-ed in Conestogo since 1928 and operated the restaurant for 20 years. Before opening her own eat-ing establishment, she was cook at the Trail's End Hotel in Conestogo. It burned down about two years ago.

Her menus featured chicken. roast beef, salads, potatoes. carrots, cabbage and other trimmings along with several choices of dessert.

27290 "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

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

27292 I n 1860 Messrs. Gideon Ochs, George Guenther and John Sachs entered into partnership in the Carpenter business under style: Gideon Ochs & Co., which partnership subsisted until 1864 when Mr. Guenther withdrew to go with Fred. Guggisburg. For a time the remaining two partners continued. Both partnerships owned property in Hespeler.

From 1867 until 1874 Gideon Ochs appears personally as a carpenter, from 1870 on, as resident. Because he lived in the Township and owned no property in Hespeler Mr. John Sachs does not appear on our assessment rolls subsequent to 1864 when evidently the Partnership ceased. Mr. John Sachs apparently worked with Mr. Ochs or with his brother, Henry Sachs (or both) until about 1874 when he went as Boss Carpenter, Millwright and General Maintenance man for J. Schofield & Co. where he remained until his death in 1887.

When he went to work at the Lower Mill, Mr. Sachs took along as Millwright, Gideon Ochs, who left around 1876 and moved to the farm west of the Guelph Road just above the Block Line. John Wehner and Fred. Fiedler worked for John Sachs at the Lower Mill and during the time there of Mr. John Sachs, many of the mill houses were built.1a

27303 St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church
Begun: 1862

A Sunday School, made up of members of St. Paul's who were unhappy with the pastor, Rev. F.W. Bindemann, was organized on November 2, 1862 by the Rev. C.F.A. Kaessmann of the Canada Synod. The formal organization of the congregation was on January 1, 1863, and on January 19, 1863 a decision was made to build a church. One quarter of an acre of land was purchased from Augusta Krug (for $178.50). The cornerstone was laid by the pastor, Rev. Kaessmann, on April 26, 1863, and on July 19th of the same year the new church was dedicated. Rev. J. Fishbein, president of the Canada Synod, presided at the dedication service.
Plans were made in 1877 to build a newer church. The last service was held on March 11, 1877 in the old church and demolition of the building began the next day. The newer and larger building on the same site was dedicated on October 6, 1878. The first English service was held on May 10, 1884. A decision was made on May 12, 1912 to conduct English language services on Sunday evenings, and in the next year an English Sunday School was begun.
Construction of another new church building began in 1965 - once again on the same site. Phase I saw construction of a new sanctuary beside the old church. The last service was held in the old church on September 4, 1966 and the first one in the new sanctuary a week later, on September 11, 1966. Phase II of the project began the next day with the demolition of the old church. Dedication Sunday for the new church complex was on October 20, 1968.
St. Peter's is reported to have been an independent congregation until joining the Canada Synod in 1914. Early pastors who followed Rev. Kaessmann were Revs. Herman Sagehorn (1870-1877), G. Manz (1877-1881), Thomas Snyder (1881) and R. von Pirch (1882-1905). Of interest: St. Matthew's Lutheran Church was formed from St. Peter's Church on February 23, 1904..1

_____________________________

Shantz Station Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church

As the congregation was not organized until 1860, Lutherans from the area worshipped at the Lutheran Church in Preston from c.1855. Rev. Immanuel Wurster of St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Preston, conducted the first service in Shantz Station on February 5, 1860 in a school about one mile west of the community. Formal organization of the congregation was on March 25, 1860 by Rev. Wurster. A church was built two years later in 1862 on a half acre of land (German Company Tract, part lot 85) donated by John Galt of the Canada Company. There were 58 charter members listed as of 1862. Of interest is the fact that the church once had a steeple. It was demolished in an electrical storm in 1904 and was rebuilt only to be destroyed again in 1930 by lightning. It was not rebuilt after that.
In 1885 the congregation split from the Canada Synod and joined the Missouri Synod, only to return to the Canada Synod in the spring of 1891. From 1912-1934 Trinity was served by pastors and students from Waterloo College. Rev. Otto Lincke of the College was pastor from 1912-1919, students preached from 1919-1922, and Rev. Professor Henry L. Henkel also from Waterloo College was pastor from 1922-1934. The congregation was joined in a parish with St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Guelph from 1937-1981, and has been on its own since that association ended in 1981.
Pastors who followed Rev. Wurster (1860-1869) were Revs. C.F.A. Kaessmann (February 1869 to October 1869), Hermann Sagehorn (1869-1872), Immanuel Wurster, for the second time (1872-1885), and Peter Andres (1885-1890).2

27339 New Dundee street renamed after WWII veteran Russell Saltzberry

Doug Coxson Independent staff

A forgotten street in New Dundee may be short in measure, but it will soon earn significance for anyone who respects and honours the sacrifice of Canada's war veterans.

Square Street, which links Main and South streets in the village, will officially be changed to Saltzberry Path this week when the new sign is installed.....Saltzberry was the only son of Alva and Florence Saltzberry, of New Dundee. O'Krafka found newspaper reports from the time of his death that describe him as an outstanding athlete who pitched for New Dundee's softball team during the South Waterloo Rural Softball League Championship in 1933.....The Lancaster Saltzberry was in went missing during a night raid against Laon, France in April 1944. The entire crew was listed as Missing In Action until it was later determined the aircraft went down in a fiery crash that made identifying the bodies impossible.1a

27343 Among the early settlers may be named Mr. Isaac Salyerds, of Irish descent. Brought up among Pennsylvanians, he married a daughter of John Erb and with her obtained considerable landed property. Isaac was a man of energy. He built a tavern (now owned by Mr. Alfred Thomson,) owned two large farms near Preston and became the owner of a small tannery, near the Grand River, built by one Andrew Smith. Mr. Salyerds erected a large store, built a tannery on those premises and carried on the business of tanning for a number of years. Owing to sickness and other causes his business declined; he discontinued the tannery and died in embarrassed circumstances. (Having neglected to make a will, his property went into the Court of Chancery where it remained for a number of years, until the greater portion of it had been consumed by law costs. The tannery premises were purchased by Henry Bernhardt who converted them into a brewery and added a number of buildings as they now stand.1a

When a man is assigned to an undeveloped idea, and by his own initiative and ability and the help of those around him, develops it, there can be never be a question as to that man's fitness and ability or to his right to be pointed out as a representative merchant or manufacturer. Such a case is that of Mr. E. B. Salyerds, known throughout the length and breadth of Canada and into the United States, manufacturer of the best hockey stick on the market. In 1876, he started making brushes in a humble way. In spite of adverse competition created mostly by cheap prison labour, his brush works grew. Eleven years later, he placed on the market for the first time his Salyerd Special hockey stick. It wasn't long before players of this sport throughout the Dominion, began to realize that here was the stick they had been waiting for and wishing for. Today Mr. Salyerds owns one of the handsomest factories in Preston. it is located on the corner of Hamilton and Water Streets, is built of brick, 2 stories in height and in point of equipment and sanitary conditions attending the manufacture of the brushes and sticks, could not be excelled anywhere in Canada. The factory is funning to its full capacity. On account of the nature of the work being done, the number of employees is smaller than that of other concerns doing a similar amount of business. Seventeen skilled mechanics are constantly employed. The man to who they credit is directly due is native of Preston and member of the C. O. F. For unadultered pluck and perseverance, the latter most especially; for business wisdom of his decisions and the control and minute knowledge he has of his works Mr. Salyerds has few equals.

27353 I found four baptisms and one marriage for 'Birmingham' and one of the baptisms was for my great grandmother and the church recorded that she was the illegitimate daughter of Haris Sanburn and Carolina Babhack (Babcock), baptised at age 3 after her mother married William Birmingham. I haven't figured out the Latin but there's something about her being accepted into the family, which probably means 'adopted'. Now I know this Haris/Harris Sanburn/Sonburn/Saunburn is real and not some fiction. I found no other references to Harris elsewhere in the parish records.1a

27356 THE PASSING OF MRS. CATH. STROME

IS GENERALLY REGRETTED BY CITIZENS

It was noted in last week's Signet that Mrs. Catherine Strome had passed from life unto death. Mrs. Strome sustained a fall off the steps of her house, about two weeks before her death. This fall was followed by a paralytic stoke and she passed into the Great Beyond, on Wednesday, Oct. 20. Her maiden name was Catherine Sand and her birthplace Erbsville. Fifty-three years ago she married Mr. Aaron Strome and they lived for many years on a farm east of Floradale. Their union was blessed with ten children, of whom nine are living. Her husband was fatally injured by falling from the gable end of a barn. This accident occurred ten years ago. Afterward, Mrs. Strome moved to Elmira and had ever since resided here. One daughter, then five years of age, predeceased Mrs. Strome. Of the surviving members of the family, there are six sons and three daughters. The sons are: Milton, of Petersburg; Astor, Ezra and Erwin, of Engelfield, Sask.; Melvin of Rochester, N.Y., and Orrin, of Pleasant Dale, Sask. The daughters are: Mrs. David Robertson and Mrs. A. R. Schwindt, both of Elmira; and Mrs. Max Oberholtzer, of Erie, Pa. Mrs. Strome is also survived by one brother, Mr. John D. Sand, of Iowa. She was aged 72 years, two months and two days. Her funeral, which was held on Saturday afternoon, was largely attended. It was conducted by Rev. G. F. Brown of the Evangelical Church, of which the deceased lady had been a life-long and consistent member. Besides the Elmira relatives and their families, relatives were also present from Kitchener, Petersburg and other places. Included among these were: Mr. Melvin Strome, of Rochester, N.Y.; Mrs. Milton Strome, of Petersburg; a grandson, Mr. Maitland Strome, of Detroit; and Mrs. Max Oberholtzer, of Erie, Pa. Many have been the words of regret expressed over Mrs. Strome's death. By an exemplary life, she had won the esteem of all who knew her. The Signet extends the sympathy of the community to the bereaved family.1a

27357 St. Clement's Roman Catholic Church

The first Catholic missionaries in the area were Father James W. Campion, Father Cassidy and Father John Cullen - beginning c.1828. They were followed by the St. Agatha missionaries, Fathers John Louis Wiriath (1834-1837) and Peter Schneider (1838-1844), but it was Father Simon Sanderl (1844-1848), also from St. Agatha, who organized the construction of a church. The deed for the land, located on the northwest corner of Duke and Guelph (now Dolph) Streets and purchased from the Erb brothers (for five shillings), was dated March 9, 1846, but it is thought that building actually began in 1844. The new church was reported to be "perhaps the only substantial Catholic church west of Toronto" (Spetz 1916:139).
Services were held more or less monthly for many years as priests were in short supply and had to be shared by other congregations. Regular monthly services began in February 1882 with the arrival of Father William Kloepfer of Berlin who looked after Preston as well. Then, beginning in 1889 Preston and Hespeler became missions of Galt. Finally, on March 25, 1905, Preston received its own resident pastor, Rev. Jonas Lenhard. By now it had become apparent that a new and larger church was definitely needed but it was not until January 1907, when Father William Gehl was pastor, that land further along Duke Street was purchased. The cornerstone for the present church was laid September 4, 1911, and the basement of the building was ready for use the following year. The basement continued in use for services until the church was completely finished in 1922. The old church had been torn down in the summer of 1915. Fire on December 26, 1971 caused considerable damage, but the church was not damaged structurally. Repairs were made and the church was rededicated on June 25, 1972.1

27371 "Former Kitchener funeral director Art Sandrock dies,"

Arthur W. Sandrock, a Kitchener funeral director for more than 50 years and a longtime advocate of defensive driving and safety, died today at Cambridge hospital. He was 85. Sandrock, who lived at 45 Caroline St. N., Waterloo, had been staying at the Preston Springs Garden Retirement Home in Cambridge for some months. Known as the Moses of Safety, in safety circles, Sandrock started the first school safety patrol in Canada in Kitchener and was also instrumental in establishing the first school driving program in the country. In 1913 Sandrock graduated from the University of Minnesota's school of embalming. As a funeral director in Marion, Ohio, he helped bury a gunned-down Chicago gangster, millionaires and paupers. In more than 50 years as a funeral director, he handled 18,000 funerals. His most famous client was Warren Harding, the 29th president of the United States. He died in 1923 and Sandrock "laid him to rest" after services in the Marion Presbyterian Church. "I remember people going past his casket in Marion at the rate of 121 a minute," he said in a 1978 interview. He came to the Twin Cities on July 31, 1928, and had a five-year contract with A. G. Schreiter, of Kitchener furniture store fame, to establish the first modern funeral home in this area and train a manager to run it. Then he intended to go back to the United States with his Kitchener-born wife. But he fell in love with the area and decided to stay. He established Kitchener's first modern funeral home at Church and Benton Streets, kept putting his money into the business and owned it outright in 1939. In 1940 he became a Canadian citizen. Sandrock served with the United States cavalry, quartermasters corps and intelligence service during the First World War, was wounded and later served in the army of occupation. He was instrumental in organizing a local group which brought the International Plowing Match here in 1954; campaigned for a full-time planning department and director in Kitchener and was a member of the city planning board for many years; organized the Central Ontario Horse Show and the First Council of Christians and Jews here. He was also responsible for bringing the first radio station to Kitchener from Brantford in 1929 and convinced owners to broadcast religious services. Sandrock also had a hand in organizing the local Big Brothers group, the air cadets and many others. In addition, he was active in the Kitchener Chamber of Commerce, and in 1965, he was named Man of the Month by the National Selected Morticians at a convention in Chicago. In 1966 he was named K-W Citizen of the Year. Sandrock also contributed his services to church work, the Doon Pioneer Village and the Rotary Club. In 1973, Gordon Carton, then Ontario transportation and communications minister, presented him with a citation for his work with student driver training in Ontario. He was president of the Tri-County Automobile Club for 19 years and received a life membership in 1970. He was also a former Ontario Motor League president. Sandrock retired as a director of the local OML branch in 1877. Surviving are two sons and one daughter.

CKGL-AM (570 NEWS), Kitchener-Waterloo, Rogers Broadcasting Ltd.

1924
CKCR Brantford was one of just 46 private commercial radio stations licensed in Canada. Like many stations of that era, it was a technology without an industry; owner John Patterson struggled to pry advertising dollars from local businesses.

Everything changed the day Arthur Sandrock came to visit. Sandrock: a well-connected Kitchener-Waterloo businessman, called on Patterson seeking airtime for his Church - St. Matthews of Kitchener. During their chat, Patterson confided his disappointment with ad revenues. When Sandrock asked what it might take to move the station to Kitchener, Patterson replied: five thousand dollars and studio space.

Once home, Sandrock went to work. Waterloo MP (and Minister of National Revenue) W.D. Euler promised to smooth the way with the federal government. Sandrock then secured five thousand dollars in advertising commitment from Kitchener-Waterloo businesses. While strolling along King Street in Waterloo, Sandrock noticed some unoccupied office space above Weichel's Hardware store. He promptly buttonholed the owner, W.G. Weichel, who was less-than-excited about donating the space. Undeterred, Sandrock won Weichel over with visions of free publicity for the hardware store. With all the pieces in place, Sandrock had little difficulty selling Patterson on the move.

With grace and dignity, Maria Gregorio, chose June 21, 2010, the summer solstice, longest day of the year; the day the sun stands still for just a moment, to be with her God.

Maria is the daughter of the late Joao and Anunciacao Sarabando; cherished sister of Odete (Joao) of Portugal, the late Joao Diniz, Natalia (Antonio) and Jose Casimiro (Lucia). A woman with tremendous grace, fiery spirit and profound wisdom, Maria's heart was always full of love for her family and she gave unconditionally of herself to everyone she touched. Respected by many and bestowed with gifts that some would say are simple, Maria made them magical; simple pleasures of food, conversation, laughter and a welcoming home. Avo, walk for miles along the beach, be forever warmed by the sun, let your spirit soar, sing, dance, whistle; forever your song in our hearts.

27400 "I have a bit on Hannah. She married Frederick Yandt in Dec 15,1870 at Normanby, he was 56 and she was 24 years old. They had Jacob, Elizabeth, Martha, William (my gg great grandfather ) and Johannes. Sometime between 1877 when she became pregnant with Elizabeth and the 1881 census Frederick died ( I have the cemetery transcription and if it is the same Frederick he died 1880).

After his death in July 26, 1883 at Normanby, she married a John McLeod, son of Duncan McLeod and Ann McArthur. In the "Farm Lanes of Bentinck" history book. at the back it ha s a list of the cemetery transcriptions for the area and it lists a Mrs.Hannah McLeod 1845-1939 buried with John Yandt and his wife Elizabeth. I do not know if she had any children with John McLeod or not.

I also have Frederick Simon Yandt's military file and it lists a Mrs. Hannah McLeod as his mother and living in Indian Head Saskatchewan. When he enlisted in Feb of 1916 she was living in Neustadt, Ont and by October of 1916 she had moved to Oakre River Manitoba and then to Indian Head Sask. I don't have a Frederick listed as one of Hannah's kids but I may have missed one. I have another Hannah Yandt that married a Dan McLeod as well so I am not sure which one is the Hannah that is his mother."1a

This was unknown to Him because of the report of the other guns. Having wounded his game, and thinking his gun empty he used the stock of his gun to bat his game in order to claim it. When in this act the gun discharged, lacerating the under side of his right arm from wrist to elbow. He was taken to Kitchener and Waterloo Hospital, where every possible attention was given. However, blood poison set in and lock-jaw developed, causing intense pain which He bore patiently to his end. He expressed his willingness to depart from this world. The end came on Mar. 11, 1928, at the age of 16 y. 3 m. 15 d. His mother preceded him three and one-half months, also twin brothers in 1915.

27480 One, Morgan Williams was a Photographer here in 1863; William Sauder in 1864; Henry Askew in the earlier eighties. Bonaparte Lake in the later years of that decade. These men used "Wet" Plates which they prepared themselves by coating a sheet of glass, cut to size, with sensitized gelatin. The Plate went wet into the camera and after the picture was taken the negative had to be developed promptly.

Mr. Williams carried on his business in rooms above William McBean's Grocery store on the site of Clifford Kreig's building. William Sauder, a man 30 years of age, remained here only a short time. It is unlikely that there are many examples of the work of Williams or Sauder now to be found.

Mr. Askew rented rooms from Mrs. Henry Sachs and there took individual photos. In addition to this gallery work he specialized in wedding, picnic and other group pictures. These pictures he sold afterwards chiefly to persons shown in them. This work often took him out of the Village and as he worked with wet plates which had to be prepared and then promptly used, he rigged up a covered waggon to contain a dark room, a work shop and storage for his equipment. This waggon was drawn by a span of light horses to "Location". When it was not in use he kept it in Mrs. Glick's Hotel shed.1a

"...Friday, March 11, 1864:...Just before sundown Father and Mother made their appearance with quite a load!! Grandmother's parlor stove, cane bottom chairs, and what is more - a cradle, which by the way seems to be a great favorite with Melinda. But what pleases me most is that Father bought Grandmother's Side-Board - the old family relic, and a most a splendid one it is too. I am glad it is going to be mine, it is just the one I was always wishing to have when I set up housekeeping, which I intend before many months if all is well"

"...Tuesday, March 22, 1864: We have been expecting Uncle Bowman's and Grandmother for some days. This evening they all came with the exception of Louisa. She could not come because Grandmother and Aunt Ann came in a buggy with Washington, and Nelson had such a load of things to bring down that she did not get a seat. I am extremely sorry that this is the case. Now that they are going so far away that we don't know when we will see each other again, if ever . . . They have one car loaded. Uncle and Nelson intend leaving with the tomorrow night train. The rest intend going with the Thursday Express . . ."

"Wednesday, March 23, 1864: This morning Father drove Grand....and Aunt Ann to Berlin with their team. . . We have seen them for the last time, no doubt, before they bid Goodbye to Canada and all their friends and acquaintances. I hope they may find Michigan all they expect - that they may make a fortune in the land of their adoption. They seem glad to go, and still with a degree of reluctance, and how could it be otherwise - the land of their birth . . ."2a

27495 Mrs. Alfred Bagg, suddenly, at her home in Waterloo Township, at about 8:45 Wednesday evening, [December 2, 1931]. She was a lifelong resident of this district, having been born in Puslinch Township. She was a member of the United Church. Survived by her husband; one son, Arthur; four daughters, Jean, Marion, Ruth and Grace; two sisters, Miss Lillian and Miss Nettie Sault of Hespeler; three brothers, Brock Sault, at home; William Sault of Vancouver; and George Sault of Washington. The funeral service, conducted by Rev. I. M. Moyer and Rev. J. J. Lowe, was held on Saturday at 2:30 from her residence to Hespeler Cemetery. Pallbearers: Walter and Archie Bagg, Walter Sault and Gordon Salt of Hespeler;; Leslie Bagg of Galt; and Walter Hatch of Kitchener. Alice Maude Caroline Sault
 
27496 ...On the fifteenth day of February, 1865, James Sault was apprenticed William Hunter for three years, his father, also James Sault going his security in the amount of two hundred and fifty dollars. The very first job young Jim had to do when he entered his apprenticeship was to help dig the trench for the foundations for a new shop Hunter had decided to build. After Hunter moved into his new shop, then a one-storey building, which we know as "Saults" Blacksmith Shop, James P. Johnston set up business in his own place and carried on till at least 1882 and I believe much longer.

...James Anderson had acquired Hirsch's half interest and also the Allendorf lot at the corner on which had been erected the middle portion of the present James Sault house, to which later Mr. Sault added the stone front portion and the kitchen in the rear of the original house.

By 1873, James Anderson had acquired the interest of Wray in the shop and so owned it and the house then on the corner. And Hirsch continued as his tenant of both until 1874 or 1875. Then James Anderson operated the shop for a year or two.

Upon completion of his apprenticeship in 1868, James Sault worked for a while out in Puslinch and then went to Leamington where he had secured a job. On his return to Hespeler in 1876 he at first rented and later purchased the shop from James Anderson and there he continued in business until he died, January 2nd, 1913, aged 65 years, 23 days.

And so these two men, James Anderson and James Sault, whose names "Anderson & Sault, Makers" had appeared on the back axle of hundreds of waggons and buggies; on the back bolster of hundreds of bob sleighs, started, in the same month, on their journey to Eternity.

James Edwin Sault once told me that when he entered his father's shop as an apprentice his first job was sharpening horse shoe nails which came blunt in those days. This was done on a tiny anvil made specially for the purpose. For many years there was a small iron shoe shaped not unlike the Capital letter "D" but slightly flattened one end of the curve, nailed to the front door frame of Sault's Blacksmith Shop. This was one side of an ox shoe which had to be made in two separate sections because of the cloven hoof.

This shoe was removed and is in possession of Miss Ruby Sault who let me examine it one day. Shortly after, I was telling Henry Sachs about the funny-looking shoe, and he said he knew all about it; because he had himself made it for John Strycker, who along with Archie D. Ferguson's Grandfather, were the last two men I recall having come to Town with a waggon drawn by oxen.1a

27498 James McGinnis operated a shop (with a bit of taxidermy on the side) in the building owned by Adolphus Jackall; About 1896 William E. Sault started a shop in the western half of this building (rented the east part to John Wilkinson) and continued there until he went west to represent The Hall-Zryd Foundry Company Limited. He sold the business to Norris Warner, one of his barbers. After carrying on some years, Charlie Bolduc who had also worked for Billie Sault bought Norris out and carried on until he went to Toronto to help out with the business of his brother-in-law, Marlatt, who was ill. On Marlatt's recovery Charlie worked at shops in Toronto for a time and he then fitted up a shop in his own house and there plied his trade until quite recently when he passed away1a

27507 Passing of Mrs. Ross - On Tuesday morning, January 11th, 1927, Mrs. Thomas Ross passed to her rest at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Mathews, Fergus. Mrs. Ross - nee Mary Saunders - was born in the village of Ayr, in the residence now occupied by Mr. William Nicoll, sixty years ago. Early in life she removed to Elora where she found a home, as one of the family, with Mr. and Mrs. James Gladstone. In the nineties of the by-gone century, she was united in marriage with Thomas Ross, a former resident of Ayr. Shortly after their marriage, they removed to Brantford where they built up an ideal home and contributed a living, worthy, practical example of Christian ethics to the welfare of Canadian citizenship. Mrs. Ross was a woman of sterling Christian character, lovely and genial in disposition, and a true and faithful follower of her Lord and Master, Whose she is and Whom she served. A mother in Israel whose thoroughly consecrated life calls forth-so beautifully expressed by her pastor-the highest encomiums and tributes of respect and honor her friends can pay to her memory-the memory of a kind and loving mother and friend, possessed by the Divine, now gone Home through the Gates of Pearl, with an abundant entrance into the City of The King of Glory. Mrs. Ross leaves to mourn their loss a daughter, Mrs. Mathews, of Fergus, two sons, Anderson and Moore, and a sister, Isabell, all of Brantford. Mrs. Ross' husband predeceased her thirteen years ago. The funeral of Mrs. Ross took place on Thursday, January 13th, from Fergus, interment being made in Ayr Cemetery. Service was held at her late residence in Fergus, and also at the United Church, Ayr, the latter service being conducted by decedent's pastor, Rev. Mr. McKinnon of Brantford, assisted by Rev. J. W.

The family immigrated to Australia and she was educated at the Kangaroo Point Girls' Private School in Brisbane. After the death of a younger sister, followed by that of her mother in 1906, she moved to Newtonards, Northern Ireland with her father and remaining sisters. The family arrived in Preston sometime later. Miss Savage graduated from the Western Hospital School of Nursing in Toronto, completed post-graduate work in tuberculosis and public health at Fordham Hospital in New York City and was awarded a fellowship from the Bellevue Hospitals. Her first nursing assignment was at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, British Columbia after which she spent three years as a nursing superintendent at Vancouver General Hospital. In 1921, she returned to Preston where she became the nurse in charge of the local branch of the Victorian Order of Nurses (VON). A pioneer in the well-baby concept, Miss Savage and her sister Annie, who was also a member of the VON, ran weekly conferences for mothers and pre-school children. The well-baby clinics spread throughout North America and Miss Savage was awarded the Jubilee Medal by King George VI. During the thirty years that Miss Savage and her sister were VON nurses, they delivered approximately 2,000 babies in an era when births took place at home. Miss Savage retired from VON service in 1952 and did private duty nursing for a number of years. She was a life member of the British Columbia Nurses Association and a member of the Ontario Provincial Nursing Association, a member of St. John's Anglican Church and a member of the South Waterloo Progressive Conservative Association. She maintained a life long interest in medicine and in her seventies was still attending seminars and lectures on nursing techniques. She died at the age of 81 on September 5, 1968 and is buried in Preston Cemetery.1a

27514 St. James Methodist Church

At the 44th Annual Conference of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Canada in June 1867, Waterloo was described as a German Mission in the Hamilton District with Rev. J. Schescher as its pastor. By 1870 mention of the Waterloo German Mission was missing from the Conference Minutes.

The first regular Methodist services in Waterloo were held on Sunday afternoons in the Town Hall until the former United Brethren in Christ Church on King Street South was purchased in the Fall of 1879 for $675; $575 was paid in cash and the balance of $100 was to be paid in two years time, with interest. This frame church was used until 1890. Purchase of a parsonage had been approved the previous year, on May 21, at the Annual Meeting of the Guelph Conference, Galt District of the Methodist Church. The congregation, with a membership of 56, was still considered a Mission at that time. Early ministers were William Savage (1883), A.A. Bowers (1884), Richard W. Williams (1887-1894), and John Scott (1895).

At the Annual Meeting of the Galt District, Guelph Conference of the Methodist Church, on May 20, 1890, the congregation was given permission to sell their old church and apply the proceeds to build a new church. The cornerstone laying for this church, at the corner of King and William Streets, was on Monday, May 26, 1890. (The church's report to the 1891 Annual Meeting of the Methodist Church was that "a new brick church has been built for about $8,000.") The congregation joined with the majority of the members of St. Paul's Presbyterian Church in 1925 to form First United Church, Waterloo; the vote was 106-99 in favour of union. The joint congregation, with the name of First United Church, worshipped in the former St. James Methodist church.1a

27541 OBITUARY. _- It is our painful duty to chronicle the death of Mrs. George Weismiller, which took place early last Sunday. About two days prior she was seized with pneumonia, from which she recovered satisfactorily so that good hopes were entertained by her relatives. An organic heart trouble of long standing, however, asserted itself and took away suddenly the life over which her friends had so anxiously watched. Deceased was a lady who was greatly esteemed by all who knew her, and a large circle of friends sympathize with her bereaved husband, who has also just recovered from a severe attack of pneumonia, and her four children. It was only a month ago that the afflicted husband celebrated his silver wedding with his now deceased wife.

27563 THE HAMBURG BRICK & TILE YARD

Of no inconsiderable importance to New Hamburg is the brick and tile yard owned by Mr. Fred Schaefer, the well-known brick and tile manufacturer of Breslau, where he also owns a yard. Mr. Schaefer's name in itself is a guarantee of a high standard of quality in the brick turned out. Long experience, combined with close observation and attention to business, have long since placed him in the front rank among clayworkers. The clay in this locality produces a superior white brick unexcelled for building purposes. Three years ago the present proprietor purchased the New Hamburg yards and at once proceeded to remodel everything. The latest brick-making machinery was installed and two new kilns erected. These kilns are worthy of more than passing notice. They are round, Mr. Schaefer's judgment leading him to consider this kind of kiln superior to all others. Coal is used as fuel and the best results in burning are uniformly obtained. The motive power is a 40 h. p. engine and the yard is capable of running from 6,000 to 8 ,000 brick and 10,000 three-inch tile per day. The tile is marketed in the surrounding district but the brick goes farther afield, being in demand in many towns and cities far distant from New Hamburg. The yards are under the capable management of Mr. Geo. Schaefer, the proprietor's son.1a

27564 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.1a

27578 Hindrin Schaefer

Old Hindrik was not a hobo, today we would call him an itinerant labourer. Just where he came from no one was sure but he worked at the J.T.Huber shoddy mill for a few years. He slept in the mill in the cold weather on the bales of shoddy or rags and when the weather was warm he slept in the baleshed, where the bales of shoddy were awaiting shipment. He was quite a good worker but no one had ever seen him wash or change his clothes, which seemed to be gathered out of the bales of rags sent in for shoddy. He ate his meals in the Huber kitchen. The younger men who worked in the mill decided to take him and give him a bath. They took him up to the tail-race, where the water was warm from the sun; stripped him and washed him. The boys said his socks had almost grown into his feet; as they were such rags.The shock of this bath and clean clothes must have been too much for him as he soon left Doon. One thing was he was kind hearted and liked children and to the small daughter of the house he taught her to count to ten in German.

27581 John Schafer

The death took place suddenly at the Fire Hall in Elmira on Thursday afternoon of last week of Mr, John Schafer, a highly esteemed and well known resident of the town. Mr. Schafer was acting as one of the jurymen at the William Miller inquest when death overtook him from heart failure. It was first thought that he was merely overcome with the heat in the crowded court room when the seizure came. The death of Mr. Schafer, who was 64 years of age and considered to be in is fairly good health, came as a great shock in his family. He was born at Rostock and came to Elmira when as young man to work at the harness-making trade. He later commenced business for himself and for forty years had had the trust and confidence of his customers. In 1896 he was married to Caroline Haack, who survives, together with one daughter, Miss Doretha of Toronto and two sons, Kilborn of Woodstock and Charles of Beamsville. Three sisters also survive. Mr. Schafer was a quite disposition and took no part in Municipal affairs, although at all times interested in anything that was for the welfare of the town. He was a member of Wesley United Church. The funeral which took place from his late home on Park street on Saturday afternoon, was largely attended and the many floral tributes testified to the esteem in which Mr. Schafer was held in the community. Rev. Wm. J. Fiddes conducted the funeral services, after which the remains were taken to the Elmira cemetery for internment. To Mrs. Schafer and family the sincere sympathy of the community is extended in their loss.1a

27586 In Memoriam
Schaefer - In loving memory of our dear Lillian who fell asleep in Jesus four years ago Oct. 25th.

As some sweet blossom droops and fades,
While blighted by the frost,
She faded from before our eyes
And all too soon was lost.
But in God's garden, free from pain,
Where grow His fairest flowers,
We know what we will find again
This vanished bloom of ours.

And she led us so we'd grow.

Hoping no one else would know.

No dearer friend on earth than you.
For us you always did your best.
May God grant you eternal rest.

27613 Stabbing victim dies in hospital

An 85-year-old Kitchener man who was stabbed in his home, July 14, died Tuesday night, in K-W Hospital. Wilfred Schaefer of 109 Weber St. E., had been in critical condition since the stabbing. Before Schaefer's death, police said they were treating the case as an attempted murder, but they would not comment today on the direction of their investigation. Schaefer's son-in-law, Ernie Kingston, said his father-in-law had lived in his home near Weber and Cedar streets, for about five years. Schaefer had been a cab driver with the former Old Victory cab company in Kitchener and worked as a baggage handler for CNR, Kingston said. Despite his age, he was still "pretty chipper and played crokinole and cards with friends at Sunnyside Home, where he attended a day care program twice a week. "He's the type of person, even at his age, who just loved to relate about where this place was 80 years ago. He knew Kitchener-Waterloo inside out," Kingston said.

27624 CHARLES H. SCHAFFER

C. H. Schaffer Died Shortly Before 100th Birthday

Charles H. Schaffer, a resident of Marquette many years and one of the pioneers in the lumbering and charcoal iron industry in the Upper
Peninsula, died in December, 1945 in Pasadena, Calif., where he had resided five years. If he had lived until April 8, 1946, he would have been 100 years old.

Despite his advanced age, Mr. Schaffer was in fairly good health and his death was not preceded by serious illness. His body will be brought for interment, but arrangements have not been completed.

Mr. Schaffer was born in Waterloo, Ontario, April 8, 1846, and moved with (his family) to Grand Rapids at about the age of six. He lived
there until he was sixteen, when he went to Texas, riding overland on horseback to a point near where San Antonio now stands. Here he worked on a large ranch and saw the big cattle drives of those days to the northern markets.

Built Kilns At Onota
Mr. Schaffer went to old Munising in 1870 to complete his brother's-contract for loading pig iron and hauling charcoal to the Munising furnace. He later took a contract to supply the furnace at Pawell's point. About 1873 he built 40 charcoal kilns at a point about 25 miles west of Munising, which he called the Onota location, later building a battery of kilns three miles east of Onota and a battery at the White Fish loca-tion about five miles west of Onota.

From these he supplied the Deer Lake furnace near Ishpeming, operated by W. H. Rood, and the Pioneer furnace at Negaunee. The DSS&A railway was built through Onota one year after his arrival.

While Mr. Schaffer made his headquarters at Onota, he was on the board of supervisors for Sohoolcraft county, which then included the present county of Alger. In these days he had to travel on foot to Manistique, the county seat many times on snowshoes in the dead of winter.

Sold Site Of Munising
Mr. Schaffer cut the hardwood off several thousand acres of Alger county land and sold the present townsite of Munising to Timothy Nester, who started the village. Most of this timber was used at his kilns and sawmills at and around Onota location.

About 1886 he purchased the Excelsior furnace at Ishpeming which was in a rundown condition. He rebuilt it mostly from material purchased from the owners of several old furnaces in the vicinity which had not been operated profitably.

He began operating kilns along the Chicago and North Western rail-way with batteries at Kloman, Spaulding, Wilson, Deloughery and Schaffer, which were purchased through M. H. Maynard. About 1899 he purchased and rebuilt the Carp furnace at Marquette
and took as a partner, Noah W. Gray, who came from the furnace at Ashland, Wisconsin.

About 1904 he and Gray built the furnace at Boyne City, part of which was moved from the Martel furnace at St. Ignace. A few years later they built another furnace at East Jordan, part of which was moved from Valley Forge, and included among the parts were cannon balls cast during the Revolutionary war.

His last furnace was built atand was called the Stephenson furnace in honor of U. S. Senator Isaac Stephenson, who was one of his partners in this venture. Also associated with him in the Stephenson furnace were the late . B. Eldridge, Austin Farrell and John R. Van Evera, of Marquette.

In 1918 Mr. Schaffer sold his interests in the Boyne City, East Jordan and Stephenson furnaces and retired from the charcoal iron business.
During his long residence in Marquette, Mr. Schaffer was prominent in business and banking circles and took an active part in civic affairs. He was a director of the old Marquette national bank and for many years was president of its successor, the Union National Bank. Shortly after his 99th birthday, he retired as president of the Union National and was believed to be the oldest bank president in the United States. He was succeeded by the late Arthur F. Jacques.

Mr. Schaffer was a charter member of Marquette lodge, F. & A. M., and a member of Ahmed temple, Nobles of the Mystic Shrine.

27648 WHITE - On the 5th of May, 1900 at the residence of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Tobias Shantz, Etta, wife of Ward White, in her 34th year. They had lived at Leamington, Ont., since their marriage in September, 1897, and up to within a short time of her decease when the husband left for Didsbury, Alberta, Canada, to prepare a home for them while the deceased came to spend the summer with her parents and friends before following her husband to the Northwest. Within a week after her arrival a child was born and a few days afterward the young mother suddenly began to sink and soon passed away. Owing to the great distance it was impossible for the husband to attend the funeral of his beloved companion which took place from her father's residence to the Alma St. U. B. church, Berlin, Ont. The remains were laid to rest in Mount Hope cemetery. She leaves her husband, an infant child, parents, brothers and sisters and many warm friends to mourn her early death, yet they mourn not as those who have no hope, for she had made the wise choice years ago and she was prepared when the summons came. God comfort the bereaved hearts in this hour of affliction.

27649 In the 1870s there was not much entertainment. In the winter revival services provided most of the excitement. These meetings would last six or seven weeks. Mr. Orpheus Shantz recalled a frame carriage shed which also stood near the Methodist Church in Hawkesville where myriads of bats congregated. Small boys delighted in beating the walls with sticks during the daytime, and then watching the bats fly out in swarms.1a

27652 The Richber-House, an attractive board and an batten structure was built in 1859. Its original owner Peter Schavio, was a labourer who had purchased the land from John Hoffman. It is one of the very few remaining structures of this type in the City.
The home provides an interesting comparison to the Nixon house located at 81 Norman Street. Both are board and batten construction, one-and-a-half stories high, with prominent, slightly pedimented window trim. As a decorative treatment, the individual moulded battens are capped by capitals connected by a repetitively arched facia board on this Mary Street home.
The west, north and south elevations of the Richber house, with the notable exception of a large window at the rear of the south side are recognized as a Heritage Landmark.1a

"Dear Uncle, I am sending you by express a small bucket full of paint, for your kitchen floor. If the old color is gone as far as the wood, then it will be necessary to give the bad places 3 coats altogether. For the first time take two thirds boiled oil, one third turpentine and first take one third of all of the Japan. That is the stuff that you use to dry it. If you have some lead white, then put a little bit in it, but not so that it gets thick. . .After the second (coat) is dry, then please let me know if it dried quickly and if you have enough paint for the last coat, and then I will tell you how to proceed.

With sincere greetings, Your nephew.

Mother and Lenora send greetings to you and Aunt, as well as Johan and Karolina."

To cause a distinct shock to the municipality and to anual an anniversery of 35 years of married life that would have been celebrated this week, death stalked with tragic suddenness at 11.30 o'clock Saturday night to claim the life of Frederick Augustus Schartzburg, at his home 226 Church street, Preston.

Shortly before retiring on the Saturday, he had been chatting with friends on the verandah of his home and he is beleived to have suffered a relapse a few minutes after taking to his bed, when he passed away. He had a wide circle of friends that he acquired during his 25 year stay in Preston. His positions as caretaker of St. Paul's United church and of the Grandview school were carried out faithfully and he had always shown a willingness to assist in tasks that might arise. His work at the church which he was a devout member was commenced 22 years ago. He had taken a keen interest in the affairs of the Sunday school. Besides teaching a class of children each Sunday, he was a prominent and popular figure around the community throughout the week. He was loved by the tots at the Grandview school, where he had been the caretaker for the past 3 years. In his spare moments he played with them and taught them new games and it was not an uncommon sight to see him surrounded by a flock of children at the recess period. For 18 years he had been in the employ of Clare Bros. Ltd. of Preston. Born in Lincoln Nebraska, USA., he spent his childhood days in Brantford. His fraternal affiliations were with the Ancient Order of Forresters and the Royal Templars. Besides his widow, there survives two daughters, Mrs. R. T. Thompson, of Toronto and Miss Hazel Schartzburg, R.N. of Toronto, one son, Percy, at home, one brother, George, of Mount Pleasant and three sisters, Mrs. William Kennedy, of St. Catharines, Rosie Braugh, of St. Louis, Mo. and Lanne Newton, of Rosedale, Ind.

27664 After much suffering this past Friday, Maria, the wife of Herr Pastor Munzinger left this life. She was born nee Schassberger January 3, 1824 at Rothenburg an der Tauber, in the Kingdom of Bavaria and received a true Christian upbringing from her parents. In 1848 she married the widowed Pastor F.R. Munzinger and came to Amerika and settled in Munroe, Michigan where they stayed for eight years. In 1860 she came to Canada where Pastor Munzinger began a new mission in the Zurich area. From there, they spent some years in Black Creek, Welland County. In 1868 they came to Philipsburg where he had received a call and served for the next nine years. This should have been their last move. But following God's plan they served five more years in Zurich and nine more years in Sullivan. For the last 2-1/2 years she lived a quiet withdrawn life here, as she was suffering with the dreaded disease Cancer. They sought cures at various places and finally surgery seemed to be the only answer. This surgery occurred September 5 and seemed to be successful at first, but despite the medical care and dedicated care of the family, there was nothing more to do. After a hard fought battle, the Lord called her to her heavenly home on November 17 (1893)

In their 45 years of marriage they had 4 children, three of whom died in childhood.

She achieved an age of 69 years 10 months and 14 days. The survivors are the mourning husband, one daughter and son-in-law, 6 grandchildren, also a brother and sister in Michigan. This past Monday her earthly remains were interred in the Philipsburg cemetery with many mourners.

27720 DIAMOND WEDDING

It is not many who have the privilege of enjoying sixty years of married life, but last Thursday, Sept. 8th, Mr. and Mrs. George Scheifele celebrated this exceptional feature in life's journey. Their family being much separated did not find it possible to be together for the occasion. But a number of their church friends kindly remembered the event and came provided to have a few hours social time in the evening. Before dispersing Rev. Mr. Hehn led in family worship and one of the pleasant circumstances as that Mrs. Scheifele was able to lead in the singing of a hymn which was part of the wedding service sixty years go. Congratulatory addresses were given by a number of those present and all departed wishing the aged couple much comfort of mind and body in their declining years.

Mr. Scheifele is now in his 83rd year and Mrs. Scheifele in her 80th year. The former came from Germany when about 2 years old and the latter, Miss Philipena Grosz, when 17 years old. They were married in Conestogo by the Rev. Frederick Bindeman, and settled in St. Jacobs, where Mr. Scheifele followed the trade of shoemaker. He had only $5 with which to go to Galt to get a supply of leather &c. for his business, but he says the dealer there made the remark that he looked like a Dutchman and an honest man and he would trust him for $60. They remained in St. Jacobs some 7 years when they removed to Floradale where they spent some 31 years on a farm, and returned to St. Jacobs 22 years ago.
Their family consisted of 3 sons and 6 daughters, six of whom are living. The daughters are Mrs. Gregor, of Clifford; Mrs. John Sattler, of Berlin; and Mrs. Jacob Sattler, of Heidelberg. The sons are Tobias, of Winnipeg; Noah, of Minnesota; and Matthew, of Iowa. There being no boys present your correspondent wasn't in it.1a

An Old St. Jacobs Citizen Passes
- On Monday, Mr. Geo. Scheifele, one of St. Jacobs oldest residents, passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Jacob Sattler, Heidelberg, where he had been residing since the death of his wife last April. The deceased had been suffering for a long time from kidney trouble, and last Thursday it was decided that he should be operated on. As he thought this would bring relief to his suffering. The operation proved too much, owing to his weak condition and advanced age. The deceased came to this village about 60 years ago, engaging in the shoemaking business for some time, when he moved onto a farm near Floradale. About twenty years ago he moved back here, where he resided until the death of his wife about five months ago. During his life he was a good and faithful member of the Evangelical Church, always, when able, attended prayer meeting and Sunday school, and was well known and respected by a large number of people in this district. He was over 85 years of age. Three sons and three daughters are left to mourn the loss of a kind father, namely, Mattias and Noah, of Minnesota, Charles Tobias, of Winnipeg, Mrs. Catherine Kreutzer, Clifford, Mrs. Barbara Sattler, Berlin, and Mrs. Mary Sattler, Heidelberg. The funeral which took place on Wednesday afternoon, to the Evangelical Church, St. Jacobs, thence to cemetery, was largely attended.2a

HEISTAND.-On the 17th of December, 1890, in Waterloo township, Waterloo Co., Ont., of paralysis, Sister Elizabeth Heistand, wife of Bro., George Heistand, aged 74 years, 7 months and 17 days. The dear Sister had been poorly for a number of years. About five weeks ago she had a slight attack of paralysis which made her helpless and on the evening of the 16 th she took her supper as usual and slept till 1 o'clock, when Brother Heistand spoke to her, but received no answer and at 3 o'clock her spirit took its flight. She was buried on the 19 th at the Eby church, Berlin, where a large assembly of relatives and friends met to sympathize with the dear Brother and family in their bereavement.

27817 St. James Methodist Church

At the 44th Annual Conference of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Canada in June 1867, Waterloo was described as a German Mission in the Hamilton District with Rev. J. Schescher as its pastor. By 1870 mention of the Waterloo German Mission was missing from the Conference Minutes.

The first regular Methodist services in Waterloo were held on Sunday afternoons in the Town Hall until the former United Brethren in Christ Church on King Street South was purchased in the Fall of 1879 for $675; $575 was paid in cash and the balance of $100 was to be paid in two years time, with interest. This frame church was used until 1890. Purchase of a parsonage had been approved the previous year, on May 21, at the Annual Meeting of the Guelph Conference, Galt District of the Methodist Church. The congregation, with a membership of 56, was still considered a Mission at that time. Early ministers were William Savage (1883), A.A. Bowers (1884), Richard W. Williams (1887-1894), and John Scott (1895).

At the Annual Meeting of the Galt District, Guelph Conference of the Methodist Church, on May 20, 1890, the congregation was given permission to sell their old church and apply the proceeds to build a new church. The cornerstone laying for this church, at the corner of King and William Streets, was on Monday, May 26, 1890. (The church's report to the 1891 Annual Meeting of the Methodist Church was that "a new brick church has been built for about $8,000.") The congregation joined with the majority of the members of St. Paul's Presbyterian Church in 1925 to form First United Church, Waterloo; the vote was 106-99 in favour of union. The joint congregation, with the name of First United Church, worshipped in the former St. James Methodist church.1

He was born near Breslau, March 24, 1886. In his early twenties he was converted and united with the Cressman Mennonite Church in Breslau.

Bro. John was a devoted Christian and always had a ready testimony for his beloved Saviour and Lord. He was a comparatively young man, but had gone through a great deal of suffering, especially during the last few years of his life. While much attached to his family, yet because of his intense suffering, he had a great longing to go home and be with his Lord and Saviour. He had a great interest in lost souls, which became very evident in his last illness when he was constantly testifying to the saving power of Christ. The funeral was conducted at his home in Baden, March 10, by the brethren M. S. Hallman and Michael Roth, and at the Cressman Mennonite Church at Breslau by brethren Oscar Burkholder and Lorne Schmitt. Interment was made in the adjoining cemetery.

O'er the spoils that death has won,

27885 Business founder dies of injuries from crash Richard Schiedel was 'visionary'
by Brent Davis, Record staff

Cambridge - The man who nurtured and grew his fledgling sod business into one of the largest in the province has died, five weeks after being critically injured in a car crash. Richard Schiedel, the founder of the Greenhorizons Group of Farms, died suddenly Saturday at Hamilton General Hospital. He was 78. The May 30 head-on collision on Highway 8 claimed the life of a 32-year-old woman from Troy, Ont. at the scene; Schiedel was airlifted to hospital. His condition had improved such that family members were preparing for him to return home in the coming days. "We thought we were on the road to recovery," said his son, Steve. Now, Schiedel's wife, Shirley, their four children Ron, Diane, Connie and Steve, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are preparing to say good-bye. Growing up in a farming family, Richard Schiedel was an innovator from the start. "He was a very forward thinker," said Ron, who has run Greenhorizons with Steve since their father's retirement in 1989. "He travelled the world to look for and find these ideas." He demonstrated that liquid nitrogen could be used in Ontario on a corn crop. He was among the pioneers in the topsoil delivery business, putting his trucks to work early in the season when the sod side of the firm was coming out of its winter slumber. Now, the company Richard founded in Cambridge in 1975 as Compact Sod also includes a mobile storage business and even a golf course in Hamilton. "He was a visionary," Steve said, "and he did what he could to encourage us." And he gave his sons the opportunity to make decisions - whether good or bad. "He let me make mistakes, even if they were costly," said Ron. "He knew I had to make them to learn." Even in his retirement, Richard Schiedel remained active in his business, and in his involvement with numerous industry, community and faith associations. An avid reader, he embraced the internet in recent years as a research tool. A family man, he always made time to support his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A bit of a sportsman, too, he got into fishing in his later years. Visitation will be held Wednesday from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. at the Henry Walser Funeral Home in Kitchener, with a funeral Thursday at 1 p.m. at Preston Mennonite Church.1a
