Wanner Mennonite Church
Begun: 1829

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

27066 'Unprecedented' heritage project sees century-old slate roof replaced

CAMBRIDGE Pieces missing, leaking and faded by more than a century of sun '96 that's how the slate roof of a 10-unit row housing structure on St. Andrew Street in Galt looked just a few months ago.

Thanks to an "unprecedented" undertaking requiring collaboration between the various owners, and a helping hand from heritage funds, the roof has been reborn....

Built in 1885 to house workers at a nearby mill, the 58 to 76 St. Andrew Street row house '96 known as St. Andrew's Terraces '96 was constructed at a cost of about $4,000. The money was put up by physician G.P. Sylvester and J.W. Ward, a local painter and real estate agent.

It was designated under the Ontario Heritage Act in 1989, in part due to its designed slate roof, as well as red and yellow brick....

Victoria married William Alfred Susand(t) in 1867. They had at least one child.

William and Victoria came to America from Canada about 1867, marrying in Mississippi, and settled first in Michigan, then later California, and finally Seattle, Washington.

Victoria worked as a hairdresser, and later a dressmaker.

In 1900, a few months after the death of her husband, she was seriously injured when two street cars collided head-on, near the Front St. cable line.

She passed away in 1916, and is buried in Lake View Cemetery, Seattle, King County, Washington, USA.1a

Few professional men have enjoyed the experiences of Dr. Wardlaw. In his younger years he became a practical engineer and was engaged in the East India Reserve as engineer remaining in India for four years. On returning to Canada, his adopted country, he studied medicine, graduating in 1888 at Trinity and Toronto Universities, practicing successfully in Galt. The doctor has a genial smile and good word for everyone and has a warm place in the heats of his fellows. Office and residence on Dickson Street.1a

______________________________________


Dr. James Syme Wardlaw. On February 22nd, Waterloo County lost one of its best known citizens through the death of Dr. James Syme Wardlaw at his home in Galt, Ontario. Doctor Wardlaw was born in Scotland in 1851, and came to Canada with his family in 1853, settling first at Plattsville, Oxford County, Ontario. His father, John Wardlaw, was a manufacturer of woollen goods, with factories at Plattsville and Weston, and afterwards in Galt. James Wardlaw received most of his secondary school education in the last mentioned town. He worked in his father's factory, receiving a good knowledge of the textile industry. Wishing to learn more about the machinery, he entered the plant of the Goldie & Mculloch Company, and thence went to India, where he spent five years installing machinery in newly-opened factories there. Desiring to study medicine he returned to Canada, and graduated from Trinity Medical School with the class of 1888, receiving the Silver Medal. He also held degrees from Queen's and Toronto universities. He then took post-graduate work in New York.
In 1889 Doctor Wardlaw settled in Galt and began practice with Dr. Head, and afterwards with Dr. Sylvester. He was Medical Officer of Health for several years, retiring when he found his practice would not permit the necessary time for his work.

He took an active interest in organized medicine. He was a Past-president of the South Waterloo Medical Society, a life-member of the Ontario Medical Association and a member of the Canadian Medical Association. He took a keen interest in education, and was for twenty-six years a member of the Galt Collegiate Institute Board.

Doctor Wardlaw was twice married, first in 1891 to Doreta Lundy, a daughter of the late Dr. Lundy, of Galt; his second wife was Mary Helen Ritchie, of Beaverton.

He is survived by one daughter, Mary, and two brothers, Henry, in California, and Thomas, in Toronto.

For many years, in fact up to three years ago, Dr. Wardlaw enjoyed a very large family practice. He was a very skilful surgeon, and in his earlier years did much surgery in the farm houses of the community. As a general consultant he was in demand by his confrères for miles around. He was a friend of the young doctor, and at least five men in the community owe much of their success to his help and advice.
He was very fond of golf and at the age of 70 won the "C" Flight Championship of Canada. He was a member of The-Hole-in-One Club. The Doctor was a raconteur without equal in this community. His stories have been told and re-told many times. It was the Wardlaw candid pungency of humour that will make them told and re-told for many years to come. To the writer he was a true friend and many times has been of great assistance in solving his medical problems. He played the game honestly and fairly with us, and we shall miss him.

James Sime Wardlaw was born in Tillicoultry, north of Dunfermline, Scotland on August 2, 1851 the son of John Wardlaw and Mary Ann Davidson. He emigrated from Scotland in 1853 with his parents, landing in New York and settling in Plattsville and Weston before arriving in Galt. At an early age Mr. Wardlaw served an apprenticeship in the woollen milling business owned by his father. He demonstrated a talent and interest in the workings of machinery and took a job as an engineer with the Goldie & McCulloch Co. Ltd. He remained with that firm for a few years and then worked as an engineer in Scotland and then in India. After three or four years abroad, Mr. Wardlaw returned to Canada to study medicine. He graduated from Trinity College in 1888 and from Queen's University before receiving his medical degree from the University of Toronto in 1890. He began his medical practice in Galt in association with Dr. Head and was associated with Dr. Sylvester until 1893. In addition to a practice that covered over forty years, Dr. Wardlaw was Galt's medical officer of health from 1890 to 1902. Dr. Wardlaw was a member of the Galt Collegiate Institute Board of Trustees for twenty-six years, was a vice-president of the Galt Horse Show in 1908 and was on the first committee of the Galt Anti-Tuberculosis League when it was formed on December 2, 1908.

27077 JOHN WARDLAW

c.1823-1903
Married: Mary Ann Davidson
John Wardlaw was born in Alloa, Scotland and, after spending a few years as a woollen manufacturer in Tillicoultry, Scotland, emigrated to Canada in 1853. He worked in woollen mills in Plattsville and Weston before arriving in Galt where he established a factory for the manufacture of yarn in the former mill of Isaac Sours on south Water St. Mr. Wardlaw left that mill in 1857 and from then until 1873 when he purchased the woollen manufacturing business of Robert Patrick, little is known of Mr. Wardlaw's activities. It is likely, however, that he continued in the manufacturing of yarns in some fashion. After Mr. Wardlaw acquired Mr. Patrick's factory, his activities became more visible and he quickly gained a reputation for the production of superior goods. Determined to maintain this excellence, he travelled to England in late 1881 to obtain the latest and most improved machinery. Not long after his return from this trip, Mr. Wardlaw's factory was heavily damaged by fire. He was sufficiently insured and rebuilt the business, adding a substantial addition to the factory in 1882. By 1889 the company employed sixty people and turned out a wide range of yarns. In the latter part of his life he retired from manufacturing to the less active role of a wool broker. Mr. Wardlaw died on March 23, 1903 and is buried in Mount View Cemetery.

27078 WINE WHEY

Heat half a pint of milk to the boiling point and pour into it a wineglassful of sherry; stir these; as soon as the curd separates remove from the fire and strain. Sweeten if desired. The whey can be similarly separated by lemon juice, vinegar or rennet. With rennet whey use salt instead of sugar.

PICKLED ONIONS

Get the small white onions, peel them. Boil in vinegar and water, about half and half, for ten minutes; drain, and put in bottles. Have vinegar boiling which is well spiced with red peppers and mixed spices, pour over the onions while boiling.

________________

SCRAPED BEEF

Take a piece of beefsteak and scrape against the grain, form this pulp into rather thin patties. Have the frying-pan hot with a very small piece of butter in it just enough to keep the meat from sticking. Put in the meat, brown nicely, but do not have it overdone. Season with pepper and salt after removing from the fire and serve immediately.

ADAM WARNOCK


1828-1902
Member of the Cambridge Hall of Fame (1996) Married: Stephanie Hespeler - 1850

Born in 1828 in Nelson, a suburb of Glasgow, Scotland, Adam Warnock immigrated to Canada with his family first to Beverly in 1833 and then, in 1835, to Galt. In 1850 Mr. Warnock married Stephanie Hespeler, the sister of Jacob Hespeler and William Hespeler, and with her had two sons, James Edward Warnock and Charles Raphael Hunter Warnock. Mr. Warnock was what has been described as a "man of prominence" for almost all of his adult life. From 1850 to 1857 he was a partner, with James M. Fraser, in a dry goods and grocery store known as Fraser & Warnock. Following this he formed a partnership with his brother James in the ownership of the Galt Edge Tool Co. formerly the Galt Axe Factory owned by H. H. Date. He served as a member of the 1st Battalion of Waterloo Militia receiving a commission as an Ensign in 1850 and a Lieutenant in 1856. Mr. Warnock was a trustee of the Galt Collegiate Institute and one of the founders of the Galt Hospital Trust. He served as President of the Hospital Trust for three years and was a Vice-President of the Gore Mutual Insurance Company for the last twenty-five years of his life. His interest in the woollen business began as a partner with James Crombie in mills they operated in Plattsville and Preston. The Preston mill later operated as Geo. Pattinson & Co. one of Preston's largest employers and one of the largest woollen producers in the country. In 1881 Mr. Warnock was part of an eight man group known as "The Syndicate" that formed the Galt Knitting Company. The former Robinson & Howell Co. textile mill on Water Street was purchased and converted into a knitting mill. Mr. Warnock became the president of the company and remained in that office for twenty years. The company manufactured shirts and drawers on a moderately large scale by Canadian standards. By the turn of the century the company employed about 110 people. In 1885, in partnership with Andrew M. Newlands, Mr. Warnock founded a small knitting firm which operated under the name of Newlands & Co. In 1894 Mr. Warnock withdrew from the Newlands partnership when he sold his interest in the company to Andrew

Newlands Jr. and Joseph Stauffer. Mr. Warnock retired from business in 1901 due to ill health, leaving the day to day operations of the Galt Knitting Company to his sons James and Charles. He died on August 29, 1902 and is buried in Trinity Anglican Cemetery. The Galt Knitting Company manufactured a large variety of knitted underwear, eiderdowns, shoe linings and knitted specialties and remains in business today. Now known as Tiger Brand Knitting Company, the company manufactures a wide range of fashion sportswear and is still operated by members of the Warnock family.

27102 Amelia Beers Warnock was born into a family of prominence but made her own distinct mark in Canada. Taking as her nom-de-plume Katherine Hale, her mother's given names, she was a journalist, poet, essayist, music critic, recitalist and lecturer. Her books of poetry were highly acclaimed, and her books of travel observations, historic houses and cities of Canada were well regarded and serve now as poignant views of developing Canadian identity in the first half of the 20th century. As Hale noted: "My country has never become to me a place I'm just used to, but one full of hidden surprises that I'm always wanting to explore.

Born in Galt, Ontario in 1878 [1874], she was the eldest daughter of James Warnock, an industrialist who was a native of Kilmarnock, Scotland, and Katherine Hale Byard, formerly of Mobile, Alabama. She had a sister, Ann, and a brother, James Byard. Through her mother, she was related to Edward Everett Hale, who wrote The Man Without a Country. Educated in Galt schools, including Galt Collegiate Institute, she sang in local productions of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. She also attended the Glen Mawr residential and day school in Toronto, also known as Miss Veal's school. Following graduation she travelled to New York to study opera, and also studied in Europe. As a soprano recitalist, she toured some of the English-speaking world. She also presented lectures, including ones on the topic of Canadian literature, as early as 1908....1a

27105 MR. JAMES WARNOCK was one of the leading business men of the town of Galt A man of large intelligence and great enterprize. A man of principle and sterling integrity. A man whose word was his bond. A strong-minded man, strong at both poles in his loves and in his aversions. He was upright, honest, honorable a man to be relied on. His life was preeminently a business life. But passing beyond that into the sacred circle of the home, where the tender, sweet, fragrant graces grow, there he was most kind, loving, sympathetic He was a devoted husband and a loving father. One who was at rest in the bosom of his family, finding there the highest earthly satisfaction. He was a true, staunch friend. He had a high esteem of my predecessor, Mr. Bentley, and his friendship for him continued to the end. He had been bred up to a respect for God's house, and a reverence for His law, and he was constant in his attendance on the Sabbath services. He thought more and felt more of religion than he expressed in words. He belonged to the old school, who were reticent and who thought these things were not for public talk, but for private and personal enjoyment.

When his last sickness came, his faith was in the Only One who can send succor, and on Him he rested with child-like confidence. How thankful we should be that in our earthly extremity we can say:

" O God, our help in ages past,

Our hope for time to come ; Our shelter from the stormy blast, And our eternal home."

Messrs. James Warnock & Co
., Hardware and Coal Merchants, Main Street

A careful review of the extensive commercial interests of Galt reveals the fact that there exists a class of houses in every respect prepared to compete in the several lines they represent with rival establishments in any other city in the Dominion. Among such a foremost position must be ascribed to Messrs. James Warnock & Co., hardware merchants, Main Street. The business of this house was founded forty years ago, and has grown from small to very extensive proportions. The premises occupied in prosecution of the business consist of a three story and basement stone structure 22x125 feet in dimensions. Of the variety and character of the stock carried it would be impossible to speak too highly. It includes every description of domestic, British and foreign hardware, iron, steel, nails, lead, tin, cutlery, paints, cordage, etc., and carriage builders' supplies; and a full line of everything of this nature, of the best quality and most careful selection is here to be obtained. In addition to this business the firm are large wholesale and retail dealers in coal, having two extensive sheds covering half an acre of ground on Hawthorn Street. They give employment to fourteen hands, and use five teams in the prosecution of their business, which extends through town and country, over the western division of the Grand Trunk Railway and its branches, on Credit Valley from Toronto to Woodstock, and the Northern & North-Western and Midland Railways. The business is steadily increasing annually, and at the present writing is reported to be excellent. Both members of the firm, Mr. James Warnock and Mr. A.C. Fraser, are natives of Scotland and are active, energetic and enterprising business men, and are held in the highest esteem by the community. Mr. Warnock was a member of the Town Council for a great many years, and rendered valuable assistance in its deliberations.3a

27117 Dead Man's Skull Was Fractured

WASELWEICZ INJURY CAUSED BY BLOW, JURY TOLD

Dr. Harold Dawson, who performed the post mortem examination on Michael Waselweicz, who died under mysterious circumstances early yesterday morning, declared at the inquest this afternoon that Waaclweiez, came to his death as the result of being struck on the forehead by some blunt instrument which fractured his skull. He also declared that there is a possibility that the man died from suffocation after he had been hit on the skull. The fracture was a very vital one on the side and front of the head, about three inches long and from one and a half to two inches in width. The doctor said that the stomach contents showed evidence that the man had been drinking. He believed that the man was alive when the bed began to burn. Dr. Dawson stated that he did not believe the man could have caused the fracture himself by stumbling against something while wandering about in a drunken condition. The man, in the opinion of the doctor, was dead about eight hours before the body was found, as rigormortis indicated this. He believed his death occurred about 2.30 or 3.00 o'clock in the morning.

27124 Log house built by David Eby in 1842 covered in clapboard it was demolished in 1981. Waterloo
 
27125 Log House constructed in 1839 by Joseph Schneider, moved to its current location.  Originally 2 storey, but due to log condition it was remade into 1 storey.  In 2011 sits on the St. Jacobs Farmers' Market site and used as a quilting store. It was originally at GCT 63 Waterloo Township Waterloo
 
27126 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

27168 Richard Roschman, Button Works, Queen Street, Waterloo - The manufacture of vegetable buttons is one that employs a large amount of capital, and gives employment to many hands. The nut from which the buttons are made is grown in South America in swampy ground. The plant creeps along the ground for about 20 feet, and then rises perpendicularly to a height of from 12 to 18 feet, with large leaves, and flowers containing a cluster of the nuts. Weighing on an average about 3 lbs to the cluster. The outer shell cracks open and allows the nuts to fall to the ground, when they are gathered by the natives and transported to the ports of shipment. Among those prominently engaged in the manufacture of vegetable buttons is Mr. Richard Roschman, whose works are located on Queen Street, Waterloo, where his premises consist of a handsome brick structure, 3 Ùa stories in height and 40x110 feet in dimensions; the engine and boiler house being 26x26 feet in dimensions and two stories in height, the engine being 35-horse power. The manufactory contains all the most improved machinery used in this line of manufacture, consisting of saws, borers, turning lathes, etc. Besides the plain buttons the house also manufactures covered ones. The trade, which is extensive, and which has grown up gradually and steadily, extends throughout the Provinces of Ontario, Quebec and the Lower Provinces. Mr. Roschman has been established in business since 1878, and in September last removed into his present new building, which he erected specially for the business. He gives employment to 75 skilled hands on an average throughout the year. He is a native of Germany, and by patient industry, coupled with enterprise and ability, has built up an excellent trade.1a

27181 Erb Street (David Eby) Mennonite Church

Early services which began around 1837 were held in private homes. Land at the corner of Erb Street and Hallman Road, where the present-day cemetery is located, was donated by David Eby Sr. on July 14, 1851; a red brick church known as David Eby's Church was built in the same year. The first minister in the new church was Jacob M. Oberholtzer who served from 1852 to 1874. He was followed by Elias Schneider (1874-1889), Jonas Snider (1892-1900), Newton Weber (1921-1923), and Noah Hunsberger (1923-1929).
Due to a difference of opinion in the David Eby congregation, Sunday School classes were held at first in a private home, that of Levi Groff, beginning in 1887. The dissension which resulted culminated in a division in the church in 1889; the minister, Elias Schneider, and the deacon, Menno S. Shantz, left the church and joined with the Old Order Mennonites of Woolwich Township. The following year, 1890, saw the commencement of "Edification Meetings", which were held in the homes of members of the David Eby congregation. These meetings later became the Young People's Bible Meetings.
By the beginning of the twentieth century, it was recognized that the church building was either in need of repair or in need of complete replacement. Consideration was given to building a new church on the same site or on a site on King Street North. A decision was made to accept from Samuel S. Snider the donation of a parcel of land which was also on Erb Street, but nearer town. Excavation of the foundation for the new church began in the Spring of 1902. A dedication service was held on August 17, 1902. A parsonage was built in 1929 on land donated by Herbert Snider, the son of Samuel Snider. The church building was renovated and enlarged in 1949-1950; a dedication service was held on April 9, 1950. Further renovations were made in 1974.

27182 St. Paul's Lutheran Church

Begun: 1852

St. Paul's, associated with St. Peter's, Heidelberg, was founded in 1852 by Rev. Franz Adam Peifer (1852-1859). Land was donated for a cement block church (since known as Allemang Church) and cemetery, which were located several miles north of Erbsville. The church was completed in 1853 and the Kirchenbuch (Church Book) was begun in the next year, 1854, by Rev. Peifer. The present yellow brick church was built in 1877 in the village. Rev. Peifer died in 1859 and in 1860 Rev. Daniel Stahlschmidt began his ministry to the two congregations of St. Paul's and St. Peter's, Heidelberg; he was followed by Rev. J. Brezing in 1873 who ministered to the congregation until 1887. Services in German were conducted in this church from the beginning until 1939 when German language services were discontinued. An addition was built on the back of the church in 1952.

Part of Lot 22, German Company Tract



The Germany Company, originating in Pennsylvania, was initially comprised of 26 shareholders. These shareholders raised 10,000 pounds to purchase 60,000 acres of property which came to be known as Waterloo Township. The property was bought from Richard Beasley. He, along with two partners, had purchased a total of 94,012 acres from the Crown who held the land in trust for Chief Joseph Brant of the Mohawk or Five Nations Indians. This transaction took place in 1798.

Lot 22 of the German Company Tract originally comprised 448 acres stretching between boundaries now defined approximately by streets Erb and Glasgow. It was sold by David and Jacob Erb, agents of the German Company, to Abraham Gingrich in 1805. In 1815, David Gingrich, Abraham's son, sold the lot to John Binkley of Ancaster. Binkley, in turn, sold the entire 448 acres to Jacob C. Snider in 1842.

Jacob C Snider was a Mennonite. He was born in Pennsylvania in 1790 and worked as a yeoman. His wife, Elizabeth, was born in 1791. The house at 194 Forsyth Drive was built by Jacob C. Snider in 1845. This fact is recorded in the census records of 1861. The original house was a two-storey, typical Georgian frame with walls 15 - 16 inches thick. These walls were made of concrete and brick, and were covered by a clapboard exterior. The entire house, at that time, was comprised of the present day living room and centre hall. 

In 1853, Jacob C. sold the property to his nephew, Samuel S., a farmer. In 1864, Samuel took out a mortgage for $6,000 from the Canada Permanent Building Society. The mortgage was discharged in 1863 according to the 1861 census. Samuel and his wife Anna had 8 children -  Cyrus, Elizabeth, Catherine, Hiram, Samuel, Menno, Susanna and Titus. With a family of this size it is speculated that the money was used for very needy additions. These included four second floor bedrooms, a third floor attic, a dining room, and the present-day kitchen. The architectural design of the addition was Gothic rather than the original Georgian. This is evident in the pointed cathedral window, the centre peaked roof, and the decorative mouldings above the east and west entrances to the centre hall.

One of the interesting additions to the house involves a separate building of brick construction which may be entered from the living room of the main house. The date of this addition is unclear according to some reports. It was used as a laundry prior to 1936. In a recent interview with Mrs. Howard Snider, who moved into the house as a new bride in 1929,[Howard and Linda were married in 1919] this addition was referred to by her as the "milk house," for the farm was still operational in those years. Mrs. Snider's daughter recalls, "my sister was old enough then to do the selling [of milk] to the townspeople. We would bring the milk from the barn, and use the milk house as our dairy." It is quite possible, however, that this building had been constructed prior to 1851 as "the doddy house" of Jacob and Elizabeth, for the census records of that year described their home as a "one storey brick." It was a very common Mennonite practice in those days for parents to have an add-on building constructed to the home of a son or daughter. Housed in this room is an enormous Dutch oven which was used for cooking. It remains uncertain whether this was the original location, or whether it had been relocated from another area of the house. While the large metal doors used to close the oven have been removed to expose the hearth, the cranes for supporting huge cooking pots remain.

Of the 448 acre property, Samuel sold 117 acres to his son, Titus, in 1903 for $8,000. In 1908, the executors of Titus Snider sold the property to George H. Hahn for $10,550. Six years later, the land was returned to the Snider family, this time to Jacob S., a ninth child of Samuel S., born after the 1861 census. The cost was $17,550. For the same amount Jacob sold the land to his son Howard S. in 1929. Jacob and his family then moved to the farm house now designated as 131 William Street West [Waterloo]. Howard sold various parcels of his land off, including a sizeable portion to the Westmount Golf and Country Club, and 56 acres, a
at a cost of $16,782 to John Derby C. Forsyth.

The Forsyths, who purchased the property in 1936 never lived at 194 Forsyth Drive, the street which now bears his name. It was purchased as a guest house. Shortly after they acquired the property, the old barn was torn down and an elaborate new one was built. Pine beams from the old were salvaged and sawed into mellow panelling for the livingroom and master bedroom of the house. "He didn't want to leave the land empty," said Mrs. Forsyth, "so he put in grain and bought a herd of purebred Jersey cattle. He lost money every year." 

In 1947, the house was sold to Dominion Life Assurance Company. They planned a housing development and put the house up for sale. While the tender of Dr. Archie Case was not the highest submitted, his plans for the house most appealed to the company, and the property became his the following year. In his renovations, three-quarters of the house was replastered, and the old fashioned closed stairway was opened onto the centre hall.    Part of the livingroom was put up on jacks, and garages were constructed under it at basement level. Adverse to change of any sort in the refurbishing, Dr. Case contracted for copies of the rotting window sashes, interior trim; and clapboard for exterior repairs was specially milled.

In 1963, the house was sold to Mr. and Mrs. J. Askin. Subsequent owners to the Askins included Mr. and Mrs. D. D. Epp in 1978 - 1980, and a Ms. D. Crossan and a Mr. D. Zimmer, 1980 - 1982.1a

27191 St. Paul's Presbyterian Church

Begun: 1887 Closed: 1925 (refer to Knox Presbyterian)

Early Presbyterian services, which began in 1864, were held in the United Brethren in Christ Church on King Street South in Waterloo. A group of Waterloo residents attending St. Andrew's in Kitchener requested permission from Presbytery in 1887 to form their own church. Permission was granted and a congregation was formed on January 31, 1888. A site on George Street on which to build the new church was chosen on February 23, 1888; the cost of the property was $600. The cornerstone was laid on June 11, 1888 and dedication services were held in the new church on November 29th of the same year. Rev. Dr. William Gregg of Knox College preached at the morning service when the first church service was held on Sunday, December 2, 1888. However, it was not until the next year when Rev. A.E. Mitchell arrived as minister that St. Paul's was considered a new congregation separate from St. Andrew's. Rev. Mitchell, who had been licensed on May 21, 1889, was ordained minister on July 3, 1889. He left Waterloo in 1892 and was followed by Revs. Samuel Carruthers (1892-1893) and John McNair (1893-1900).

When the United Church of Canada was formed on June 10, 1925 of a union of Methodist, Congregational and some Presbyterian congregations, the majority of the St. Paul's congregation (106-99) voted for union with the United Church. That majority joined with the St. James Methodist congregation to form First United Church. Those members not wishing to become part of the United Church of Canada met in the Town Hall and then in Letter's Hall until their own church, Knox Presbyterian, was built on Erb Street West in 1927. After Union the Russian Mennonite congregation, whose members had arrived in Waterloo in 1924 from the Ukraine, arranged to buy the former St. Paul's Presbyterian Church. In 1992 it was the place of worship of the Waterloo-Kitchener United Mennonite Church.

27219 The Wissler-Cascaden house, a two-storey red brick Georgian home was built in 1842 by John Wissler, a Waterloo Township pioneer who arrived from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in 1834. One year after his arrival Wissler established the Eagle Tannery. A shoemaking, harness making and mercantile business soon sprang up in conjunction with the tannery. This industry, including the workers homes on nearby Bridge Street, formed the nucleus of the settlement of Lexington.

Wissler spared no expense in the construction of his home, elaborate window and door surrounds were included along with a plaster cornice in the drawing room. The most striking feature of the interior, however, is the two-storey front entrance hall which rises a full twenty feet to a magnificent plaster medallion on the ceiling. Access is gained through two arches which rest on moulded plaster shells and frame a cherry stairway which climbs to the attic level.

A number of additions have been made to the home. The first, a two-storey addition to the west side was completed around 1858. The second, which contained a bake oven, schnitz oven, ash oven and smoke house, was added behind the first between 1859 and 1875. The last addition, this time on the south side, provided a one and a half storey salt box kitchen which was designated to serve as the doddy wing at the turn of the century.

The property was sold to Samuel Weber in 1873. It remained in the Weber and Shantz families for over one hundred years until the late 1970s when it was converted into apartments and fell into disrepair. The present owners, Ron and Wendy Cascaden, have made a commitment to restoring the house.

All of the exterior elevations of the Wissler-Cascaden House and the front hill are deemed to be of both architectural and historical significance.1a

27221 The McLaughlin House was built by local carpenter and Deputy Fire Chief Conrad Fenner in 1867.

Frame houses of this age are relatively rare in local urban settings since brick houses were encouraged by the enactment of fire regulations restricting wooden construction. The three-bay home, which stands on a foundation of granite fieldstone, has a central hall and balanced fenestration. The entrance is highlighted by a classical pediment, tympanum and fluted half columns which frame the paneled front door. The plank construction of the house is evident in the attic. Fenner, a talented joiner, enlarged the building from one-and-a-half to two-stories in 1886. Evidence of the change may be seen in the diagonal cuts on each of the four vertical corner trim pieces where they were spliced to accommodate the second storey. Vertical boards, two inches by twenty one inches are nailed to the horizontal ones. Siding covers the planks on the exterior, while lath and plaster does the same on the interior.
The west, north and south facades of the McLaughlin house, was designated as a well preserved example of wooden construction.1a

27222 Mercantile Fire Insurance Co., P.H. Sims, Secretary - Among the insurance companies which are worthy of generous support is the Mercantile Fire Insurance Company, of Waterloo, which has been established for the past ten years. The subscribed capital of the Company is $200,000; paid up in cash, $20,000, and Government deposit, $20,100. The record for the Company has been excellent, and it has steadily but constantly advanced. The losses for 1885 were below the average, being only 49 percent of the net income, and after paying a 10 percent dividend on the paid up capital, there was on hand, over and above the paid up stock, an amount of at least 110 percent greater than required to reinsure all risks. There was a gain in business during 1885 over 1884 of $10,099.52 in the premium income, and a gain in assets of $14,465.57.  During the year 5,756 policies and renewals were issued for insurances amounting to $5, 951,556, on which premiums were received in the sum of $89,131.86, and including interest on investments, made the total receipts for the year $92,301.05. The total insurance in force on Dec 31st, 1885, was $6,906,795, and the reinsurance liability of these risks $37,957.38. The officers of the Company are, J.E. Bowman, Esq., President; John Shuh, Esq., Vice-President; P.H. Sims, Esq., Secretary; James Lockie, Esq., Inspector, and Alexander Millar, Esq., Solicitor.

The nut from which the buttons are made is grown in South America in swampy ground. The plant creeps along the ground for about 20 feet, and then rises perpendicularly to a height of from 12 to 18 feet, with large leaves, and flowers containing a cluster of the nuts, weighing on an average about 3 lbs. to the cluster. The outer shell cracks open and allows the nuts to fall to the ground, when they are gathered by the natives and transported to the ports of shipment. Among those prominently engaged in the manufacture of vegetable buttons is Mr. Richard Roschman, whose works are located on Queen [Regina] Street, Waterloo, where his premises consist of a handsome brick structure, 3 1/2 stories in height and 40x110 feet in dimensions; the engine and boiler house being 26x26 feet in dimensions and two stories in height, the engine being 35-horse power. The manufactory contains all the most improved machinery used in this line of manufacture, consisting of saws, borers, turning lathes, etc. Besides the plain buttons the house also manufactures covered once. The trade which is extensive, and which as grown up gradually and steadily, extends throughout the Provinces of Ontario, Quebec and the Lower Provinces. Mr. Roschman has been established in business since 1878, and in September last year removed into his present new building, which he erected specially for the business. He gives employment to 75 skilled hands on an average throughout the year. He is a native of Germany, and by patient industry, coupled with enterprise and ability, has built up an excellent trade.1a

The manufactory contains all the most improved machinery used in this line of manufacture, consisting of saws, borers, turning lathes, etc. Besides the plain buttons the house also manufactures covered once. The trade which is extensive, and which as grown up gradually and steadily, extends throughout the Provinces of Ontario, Quebec and the Lower Provinces. Mr. Roschman has been established in business since 1878, and in September last year removed into his present new building, which he erected specially for the business. He gives employment to 75 skilled hands on an average throughout the year. He is a native of Germany, and by patient industry, coupled with enterprise and ability, has built up an excellent trade.1a

27230 Silver Spring Mill, Thos. Roesch, Waterloo - As a manufacturing centre, Waterloo holds a prominent place in this section of Ontario. Among the various industries that of milling holds a prominent position. Holding a leading place in this line is Mr. Thomas Roesch, proprietor of the Silver Spring Mill, which has been established since 1878, and since the inception of the business it has been greatly developed, the trade now extending throughout the Lower Provinces. The premises occupied are 40x54 feet in dimensions and four stories in height, where employment is furnished to four skilful millers under the practical supervision of Mr. Thomas Roesch. The mill contains one set of rolls, three runs of flour stones and one chopper; the engine being 45-horse power. The daily capacity of the mill is 75 barrels. The leading brands of flour manufactured are "Silver Spring," "The best Superior Beauty,", etc.; cracked wheat, Graham flour and rye flour delivered in any quantity; also patent roller process flour, and the leading brand is the "Vesta." The quality of these is such as to cause an active demand for them in the Lower Provinces' markets. Mr. Roesch, the proprietor, is a practical miller, and has engaged in the business for many years. He is a native of Germany, and has resided in this country for the past 32 years. He is a thorough-going, active and enterprising business man, who, by his own unaided efforts, has built up a trade of which he may well feel proud.1a

27231 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

27232 St. Paul's Presbyterian Church

Begun: 1887 Closed: 1925 (refer to Knox Presbyterian)

Early Presbyterian services, which began in 1864, were held in the United Brethren in Christ Church on King Street South in Waterloo. A group of Waterloo residents attending St. Andrew's in Kitchener requested permission from Presbytery in 1887 to form their own church. Permission was granted and a congregation was formed on January 31, 1888. A site on George Street on which to build the new church was chosen on February 23, 1888; the cost of the property was $600. The cornerstone was laid on June 11, 1888 and dedication services were held in the new church on November 29th of the same year. Rev. Dr. William Gregg of Knox College preached at the morning service when the first church service was held on Sunday, December 2, 1888. However, it was not until the next year when Rev. A.E. Mitchell arrived as minister that St. Paul's was considered a new congregation separate from St. Andrew's. Rev. Mitchell, who had been licensed on May 21, 1889, was ordained minister on July 3, 1889. He left Waterloo in 1892 and was followed by Revs. Samuel Carruthers (1892-1893) and John McNair (1893-1900).

When the United Church of Canada was formed on June 10, 1925 of a union of Methodist, Congregational and some Presbyterian congregations, the majority of the St. Paul's congregation (106-99) voted for union with the United Church. That majority joined with the St. James Methodist congregation to form First United Church. Those members not wishing to become part of the United Church of Canada met in the Town Hall and then in Letter's Hall until their own church, Knox Presbyterian, was built on Erb Street West in 1927. After Union the Russian Mennonite congregation, whose members had arrived in Waterloo in 1924 from the Ukraine, arranged to buy the former St. Paul's Presbyterian Church. In 1992 it was the place of worship of the Waterloo-Kitchener United Mennonite Church.

27233 Union Mills, William Snider & Co. - The milling industry is well represented in Waterloo. Situated as the town is, in the midst of an important wheat-growing country, this is to be expected. Among those prominently identified in this line is the firm of William Snider & Co., proprietors of the Union Mills. This business was established in 1879, succeeding Mr. Elias Snider, who had previously conducted it for five years. The premises occupied as the mill are 46x136 feet in dimensions and five stories in height, containing 26 pairs of rolls and all the latest and most improved mill machinery and appliances, the engine being of 100-horse power. The product of this mill is of the most superior quality, and has a ready sale in the markets of the Dominion, besides which the firm do an extensive export business. They give employment to 15 skilled and careful hands, who are under their immediate supervision. The leading brands of flour manufactured by this concern are the "Ocean," "Agate," "Zola" and "Waterloo," which are well known and popular brands. The trade of the house during the present season is the largest they have had for years. Both members of the firm are natives of Canada, and the senior member of the firm, Mr. Snider, is a public-spirited gentleman, and was in the Council for seven years, Reeve for three years, Warden of the county one year, and Mayor of the town for two years. Both gentlemen are active and progressive business men, and have succeeded in building up an extensive and lucrative trade, of which they are eminently deserving.1a

27234 Waterloo Foundry, Bricker & Co., King Street, Waterloo - Was established by Mr. Jacob Bricker, father of the present senior member of the firm. It was started in a comparatively small way, and it required untiring exertions and a lively spirit of enterprise to build it up to important proportions; but those qualities were not wanting, as the result achieved testified. The business is now conducted by Messrs. Levi Bricker and E.W.B. Snider, under the firm title of Bricker & Co. The 38 years that have passed since the founding of the business have seen many extensions in the buildings to accommodate the increasing trade, until to-day their extent is as follows: Main building, 45x100 feet in dimensions and two stories in height; moulding shop and engine room, 50x80 feet, one story; blacksmiths' shop, 30x40 feet, one story; paint shop, 30x50 feet, one story frame; and implement shed, 34x100 feet, one story frame. In these employment is furnished to 40 skilled and competent workmen. The firm manufactures a general line of agricultural implements, including reapers, mowers, binders, threshers and hay binders, besides general job work and repairing. The work turned out at this foundry is of the very best description, superior in quality and perfect in finish, which has been the main cause in building up and retaining their extensive trade. The annual output of the concern is over $40,000. Both members of the firm are natives of Canada; Mr. Bricker, the senior member, being the practical man and supervising the work, while Mr. Snider attends to the financial and business affairs, the latter gentleman being a representative of the North Riding of Waterloo in the Local House. The industry they conduct is alike creditable to themselves and the town of Waterloo.1a

27236 WATERLOO MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE CO., C.M. Taylor, Manager, Waterloo -

The above mentioned Company occupies a prominent position among the insurance companies of the Dominion, and affords that protection against loss guaranteed only by the most reliable organizations of this character. It was established 23 years ago, and as the name implies, is both mutual and cash in its mode of operations. The rates for all classes of insurable property are reckoned on a basis of those fixed by the tariff of the Canada Fire Underwriters' Association. All mutual policies are written for three years. Over 23 years' experience has demonstrated the fact that in none of these years has the cost of insurance on the mutual plan exceeded 80 per cent of that of stock companies. According to the 23rd Annual Report of the Secretary, the total earnings of the Company for 1885 were $93,334; losses paid $37,523; total assets of the Company, $228,650; policies in force, 11,399; amount insured, $10,710,163; balance of assets over liabilities, $178,036.35. This is one of the cheapest and most satisfactory systems of insurance, especially when the Board of Directors is composed of gentlemen well known in business and financial circles for their probity, intelligence and business acumen, such as that displayed in those who constitute the Board of the "Waterloo Mutual." The officers of the Company are Charles Hendry, Esq., President; George Randall, Esq., Vice-President: C.M. Taylor, Esq., Secretary and Manager; J. B. Hughes, Esq., Inspector; and Messrs. Bowlby & Clement, of Berlin, Solicitors. The many years this Company has been in existence, and the successful career it has enjoyed, together with the high standing of the business men who insure with it, are sufficient guarantees that it is being conducted in a conservative manner, and that its reputation is beyond question.1a

27251 The Theobald Spetz Site Historical Overview

Waterloo County (now the Regional Municipality of Waterloo) was settled in the early 1800's by people of German descent who came to Canada mainly from the United States of America in their famous Conestoga wagons (Figure 12). The first Euro-Canadian settlers were Mennonites who arrived in 1801. A company of Pennsylvanian Germans was formed in 1806 who bought a tract of forty-five thousand acres at five shillings per acre. Population records indicate a rapid growth rate during the first half of the nineteenth century: 1,640 (1825); 4,424 (1841); and 7,759 (1850). In fact, Waterloo Township was second in 1850 only to York as the most thickly settled township in the Province (Smith 1852:120).

These pioneers brought with them their tradition of mixed field crop and livestock agriculture. Crops normally occupied 70% of the farmland although Lee (1943) describes one sample area that had up to 75% in crop. According to 1849/1850 tax assessment rolls, Waterloo Township had twenty-eight saw mills, twenty-seven schools and eleven grist mills plus over thirty-two thousand acres under cultivation. Wheat (135,000 bushels), oats (105,000 bushels), potatoes (80,000 bushels), turnips (44,000 bushels), peas (26,000 bushels), rye (25,000 bushels) Indian corn (7,000 bushels) barley (5,000 bushels) and buck-wheat (3,500 bushels) were the principal crops in addition to butter (61,000 lbs.), wool (26,000 lbs.) and maple sugar (22,000 lbs.). Animal husbandry included sheep (10,411), cattle (7,766), hogs (6,630), horses (2,137) and oxen (820).

The nineteenth century forests in Waterloo County consisted of splendid pines and hardwoods such as sugar maple, beech, wild cherry and red oak. W.H. Smith (1852:120) offers a stinging 1852 editorial comment still relevant today on forest conditions by reporting that

... the person clearing land to make a farm, be he an old settler, or a new arrival, commits indiscriminate slaughter among the trees, and makes a clean sweep - destroying everything, and leaving his dwellings unshaded and unsheltered for the next generation. Much of this absurdity, as far as the new settlers are concerned, must be attributed to the advise and assertations of the 'old inhabitants,' who are in the habit of telling them, 'Ohl its of no use trying to save trees, you can't do it, the wind will blow them all down.'

The first Euro-Canadian occupant was Theobald Spetz [who actually settled on the land rather than land speculators], a German immigrant from the Upper Alsace region of France, who arrived in Waterloo Township by way of Pennsylvania with his wife Maria and their four sons around 1828. After having leased the land for some time and building a log cabin, he purchased it in 1840.

Possibly because of his advanced age and poor health, Spetz sold most of the property in 1843 except for a five acre parcel which Maria inherited upon her husband's death in 1847. Joseph Spetz, the eldest son, purchased part of the surrounding land back in 1851 and lived in a new house just across the road from his mother until the late 1850's. Rechecking the Canada Census returns has determined their religion to be Roman Catholic and not Mennonite as was originally thought.  In fact, they were probably the first Catholic settlers in Waterloo Township. Annual tax assessment rolls indicate that there were no structures on the property prior to the arrival of the Spetz family. While probate records state that a one and a half storey frame house and other outbuildings were erected, George Tremaine's 1861 map of Waterloo County shows only a single structure in the approximate location of the archaeological site (Figure 13). The 1881 version of the same map (Parsell 1881:23) does not show any structure at all. It was apparently demolished during the mid-1860's when the homestead was incorporated into the surrounding agricultural field.

Archaeological Fieldwork

The Theobald Spetz site is situated on very gently sloping to level topography with Martin Creek to the north and unnamed tributaries of Fowell, Cedar and Laurel Creeks just to the east, south and southwest respectively. The general area is classified as a drumlinized till plain in the Waterloo Hills physiographic region (Chapman and Putnam 1984:113 and Map 2225) within a transition zone between the Carolinian and Canadian biotic provinces (Janusas 1987:2). Figure 14 (adapted from Presant and Wickland 1971:Map 19) illustrates the dominant Heidleberg fine sandy loam soil type on the site.

The surface artifact distribution encompassed approximately 2,000 square metres immediately adjacent to Westmount Road on Lots 94 to 97 of the plan of subdivision. Except for widely scattered isolated findspots, no substantial amount of nineteenth century cultural material was found anywhere else in the ploughed field. This confirmed that the major residential occupation was confined to the area excavated.
Removal of the topsoil exposed four structural features - a large root cellar and three stone-filled pits that could be privies/outhouses (Figures 16 to 20). Two juvenile animal burials were also found. Irregularly-shaped subsoil disturbances throughout the excavated area are related to root burns and tree stump removal during forest clearing operations of the pioneer settlers.

Although a wide range of material was recovered from the cellar, few artifacts, if any, were actually related to cellar use. All of the material was apparently deposited after the house was demolished. The cellar was intermittently filled-in during several sequential episodes with building rubble, midden deposits and fist-sized stones gathered from the adjacent fields.1a

27255 Township loses a community advocate
Elmira lawyer Bob Waters was former mayor and supporter of many local causes

by Steve Kannon

Bob Waters, an Elmira lawyer, a former Woolwich mayor and long-time supporter of recreation projects, succumbed to cancer Monday. He was 69. Waters was remembered this week as a man dedicated to community service, sometimes leading the charge but often quietly doing his part. "Bob was involved in an awful lot of things in the community. A lot of the time it was behind the scenes - he didn't want a lot of attention," said current mayor Bill Strauss, who served on council with Waters, calling him a mentor. Waters was a councillor from 1982 to 1986. He was named mayor shortly after the '86 election when Ken Seiling vacated the post on being elected the chair of Waterloo Region. Waters then went on to serve three terms as mayor until 1994. His tenure at the head of council included the difficult times that followed the discovery of contaminants in Elmira's drinking water. Pollutants from the Chemtura Chemical plant - then known as Uniroyal - had seeped into the groundwater, eventually forcing the installation of a pipeline from Waterloo, which supplies water to the town to this day. When the crisis first hit, municipal officials were kept extremely busy. Waters worked tirelessly at the time, said Seiling. "We did a lot of things together at that time," he said, recalling one night when he and Waters received some information about contaminated private wells. There was a snowstorm underway, but the two of them went door-to-door in the neighbourhood, warning residents about the risks. "He stick-handled his way through that very well," Ward 1 Coun. Ruby Weber, who also served on council during that time, said of Waters' handling of the contaminated water issue. More recently, she worked with Waters on the Fit for the Future campaign, the Woolwich Recreational Facility Foundation fundraising drive he chaired. The effort raised $5.6 million for new recreation facilities in the township, including the Woolwich Memorial Centre. He was an avid supporter of Woolwich Minor Hockey and the Elmira Sugar Kings Junior B squad. As a co-founder of Friends of Hockey, he helped financially disadvantaged kids get into the sport. Community involvement was always a priority for Waters, said Strauss. That was especially true for recreation programs. When he was mayor, Waters didn't believe in lavish spending, but he always made sure there was something in the budget for recreation in the township. "Bob did a lot for the community. There was nothing he wouldn't do for you." His commitment to the township extended well past his involvement on council, added Weber, noting he was willing to work with everyone, to bring groups together. "He was so easy to get along with. You could disagree with him, but he was always willing to work with you. I've got a lot of great memories about Bob and I'm going to miss him. The community will miss him," she said. Born in Clinton, June 17, 1941, Waters grew up in Toronto. Having attended Osgoode Hall Law School, he was called to the bar in 1968. Eventually settling in this area, he practiced law in Elmira for 40 years, along with partner Cynthia Hastings. Waters is survived by his wife Lulu, son Tim and his wife Bev (Lockett) and son Rob and his wife Dana (Witmer). A memorial service was held Friday at St. John's Anglican Church in Elora, followed by a celebration of his life at the Elmira Legion.1a

AYR Loss of the Nithvale Mills by Fire
A MAN BURNED TO DEATH IN THE CONFLAGRATION

(From our own Correspondent)

Last Tuesday evening shortly after 9 o'clock a very destructive fire broke out here, involving the complete loss of Mr. Piper's flouring mills at Nithvale, and accompanied by one of the most appalling calamities that has ever occurred in the neighbourhood viz.:-the death of one of our best known and most respected citizens, Mr. Archibald Watson, brother of John Watson, Esq., and for upward of twenty years back foreman in this gentleman's moulding shop.

The fire, when first discovered by Mr. J. Piperhad burst out through the corner of one of the upper flats of the mill, and was apparently slight--so slight that Mr. P., seizing two pails of water rushed up with them expecting that he could easily distinguish it; but he had no sooner reached the top of the stairs than he was glad to return again, to avoid suffocation from smoke. By this time a number had collected and, the alarm having been given scores continued to pour in with the fire engine and its accompaniment. But a few minutes rendered it plainly manifest that with the headway which the fire had already made, all efforts to save the mill would be worse than useless, and so the hose were directed on the oat meal mill adjacent to save it.

The latter was saved, but in less than two and a half hours from the commencement of the fire the mill was a smouldering mass of ruins. Mr. Piper has the sympathy of the community in this serious loss--a loss which is double in its character, for the season's business has gone with the mill. The mill and contents not saved were worth about $12000, to meet which his insurance policies cover but $6000. Mr. P. is not, we believe, fully decided as to his future course, that is whether he will rebuild or not, but in the meantime he will fit up the Jedburgh Mills for present use.

First amongst those who arrived at the fire was the deceased Mr. Watson, who, with his wonted alacrity on such occasions, began immediately to remove valuables out of the burning building. In this several assisted, until the approaching flames obliged them to desist, and they turned their attention to the other minor structures around the outside. Mr. Watson, however, thought he could effect one entrance more and save one of the large window sashes of the mill. Everyone around him warned him not to attempt such a thing, but apparently confident of success, he seized a small hatchet, entered the doorway and soon appeared at an open window between the door and the one he wished to save. Here he stood for an instant, when he again was again entreated to come out. He refused, however, and passed on to the other, which he began to hammer lustily in order to loosen it from its fastenings. The noise having been heard outside by some persons who were unaware of the facts, they at once raised the cry "there is a man in the mill", and one of them thinking the knocking was caused by the man's efforts to extricate himself, got a long pole and with a blow broke in the window. Ere this, however, Mr. Watson, evidently finding he had already gone too far, had left the window and was making apparently for the door. The whole lower flat was then literally one blaze and long tongues of flame had begun to dart out through the doors and windows, thus preventing not only ingress to the mill, but even an approach to it from the outside of less than twenty feet. Again the unfortunate man was seen at the middle window making his way to the door. An instant afterwards he appeared at the door in a similar position and the people began to experience some sense of relief as they expected in a moment more to have him amongst them--but horror! he passes by without even noticing the opening and makes apparently for the densest portion of the flames. Again he stops, turns back, and again he is observed in the doorway, but this time only for an instant as he dashes wildly by toward the centre of the mill where he falls. All this was the work of probable not more than ten minutes from first to last.

Some ladies outside, who had seen the unfortunate man on his second appearance at the doorway gave vent to their feelings in a few unearthly shrieks and never will the writer forget the look of blank dismay, intensified by the glare of the fire, which depicted every countenance as the reports spread. "Archie Watson is burned to death?" One moment all were paralysed; the next, engine was playing vigorously on the fatal spot, in hopes of saving at least a part of the remains of our respected friend; but all to little purpose, for though an almost continuous steam was kept upon on it all night, the most diligent search afterwards revealed only a few small particles of bones so thoroughly calcined that the slightest pressure would reduce them to powder, a buckle and one or two buttons belonging to the deceased, all of which could readily be placed in a quart measure. And this was all that now remained of the man who, a few hours before was in the enjoyment of good health, strength and spirit, in the bosom of his family. We have seen death in repulsive forms; we have read or heard of it in many others, but rarely, within our recollection, have we known of a case so utterly barren of consolation or satisfaction of any kind, as the present one. An indulgent father, a kind husband, an excellent neighbor, and a warm-hearted and generous friend literally blotted out of existence in an hour--with nothing left to tell the tale but a handful of ashes--the thing seems too horrible to be realized. To say that the most profound sympathy exists for the bereaved family and friends would give but a very faint idea of the general feeling that prevails.

Nothing of so sad a nature has ever before occurred in our midst, and the village has been literally silenced with sorrow under the awful stroke.

Several theories are advanced with reference to the deceased's inability to extricate himself. He must undoubtedly have been unconscious when he gave over hammering the window sash, but we are inclined to think that, surrounded as he was by flames and inhaling as he must have done repeatedly, such quantities of carbonic acid he must have been stupefied considerably on his way to the door and this idea seems more probably from the fact that in proceeding towards the door he had to pass two large open windows at either of which he might have thrown himself out. He passed by these windows when he entered the mill. In fact, he stood in one of them: consequently he must have known of their existence and likewise that they were open. But on his return no notice apparently was taken of them although neither of them was over 4 feet from the floor. His aimless wandering from this time also renders it almost certain that he had been unconscious for some moments before he dropped.

THE FUNERAL.--The Funeral took place on Friday afternoon, and was very largely attended. Numbers from the country round, as well as from Galt and Paris, were present to pay the last mournful token of respect to the memory of one so well-known and so universally respected. As the people began to gather, the doors of the Methodist church32, opposite the late residence of the deceased, were opened and the people assembled there to await the procession to the cemetery. While here they were addressed briefly by Rev. Mr. Inglis. Rev. Mr. Thompson read a portion of Scripture and prayer was offered up by Rev. Mr. Knowles. In the house, Prayer was offered up by Rev. Mr. Ure, of Goderich, a cousin of the deceased.33 The procession then formed and marched to the cemetery in connection with Rev. Mr. Inglis' church: the relatives, with the remains, leading followed by the workmen in Mr. John Watson's foundry-fellow-workmen of the deceased--with the badge of mourning on their arms. After these came the general public-a long and mournful procession. At the grave prayer was again offered up by Rev. Mr. Ure, and on Sabbath the same gentleman preached the funeral sermon.2a

JAMES G. WATSON ANSWERS LAST CALL
Old and Respected Resident Passed Away Sunday, After Lingering Illness


Although not unexpected, the death of James Gibb Watson, which occurred on Sunday about noon time came as a distinct shock to the whole community. Deceased, who was in his 74th year, had been ailing for [near] a year with a disease which gradually sap[p]ed his strength, until death released him.

His presence will be much missed by a host of friends and acquaintances, who always found in him a good friend, with many sterling qualities and a never-failing cheerfulness of manner, coupled with a ready wit.

Deceased was born near Glasgow, Scotland, and when 10 years of age came to Canada with his parents, settling in Hamilton. Here he learned the trade of moulding with his father. After living in Hamilton for about 8 years he resided in Galt for a short time and then came on to Ayr. He here went into the late James Somerville's printing office to learn the printing, going from this place to Simcoe and then to Otterville [?], finishing his trade in the office of the late John Sanfield McDonald.

For quite a number of years he then travelled through the United States working at his trade. when the Civil War broke out he joined the Northern army, becoming a member of the 12th New York Cavalry. During the war he was in many important battles and had the good fortune to come out unscratched, with the exception of 2 sight wounds.

He arrived back in Ayr shortly before the Fenian Raid took place and during that stirring period joined the local company as Lieutenant. His company received orders to mobilize at New Hamburg which they did, but at the end of two weeks were ordered back to Ayr; the Fenians having been defeated.

He started the Ayr Herald in 1867, and published a splendid paper for two or three years when he disposed of his plant. From then until when he started a grocery store on Stanley Street, he was connected with the John Watson Mfg. co. for the greater part of his time.
He was the oldest Oddfellow in this district, having completed nearly 10 years of Oddfellowship, and was the second D.D.G.M. to be elected for this district. In politics he was a Liberal of the old school and in religion a Presbyterian.

In 1867, he married Sarah Bishop who survives him. He is also survived by three daughters and two sons who are: Mrs. Geo. Hamilton, Toronto: Mrs. R. Harmer, Ayr: Mrs. E.S. Strachan, Winnipeg, and A.G. Watson, Ayr and W.D. Watson, Camrose, Alta. One brother Wm. A. Watson of Moosejaw, and one sister, Mrs. R. Chisholm of Ayr also survive.

The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon and was attended by practically everyone in the village and a goodly number from the country. Both the Watson and Hilborn factories closed down for the afternoon, as well as most of the stores during the hours of the funeral. Members of Dolman Lodge, I.O.O.F., to the number of 35 or 40, accompanied by D.D.G.M. Aver of Paris attended the funeral in a body and marched with the cortege to the cemetery. The services were in charge of Rev. J.J. Brown, assisted by Rev. Dr. Thomson and Rev. S. Edwards. The pall bearers were: Messrs John Anderson, W.A. Ramsay, C. McGeorge, C.K. Morton, R. Gemmell and R. Cuthbertson.2a

We regret to state that Mr James Watson, son of J. Watson, Esq. who is now at College in Ithaca, N.Y. is lying very ill of Typhoid Fever.

_________________________

It is with sincere regret we learn just as we are going to print that Mr. James Watson, son of John Watson Esq., of Ayr, whose illness was noticed in our Ayr correspondence last week, breathed his last at half past eight o'clock yesterday morning. Deceased some years ago attended the Galt Grammar School and afterwards Upper Canada College, Toronto, where he took a high place amongst his school fellows and gave promise of a brilliant career. Subsequently selecting Civil Engineering for a profession, he went to College at Ithaca, N.Y. to prosecute his studies towards this end. He had already completed one session and was entering upon his second when he was struck down with the fell disease Typhoid Fever which had so far supervened that ere his friends could reach his beside, not twelve hours after they received the sad news he was already unconscious and remained so, we believe, to the end. He was in every respect an estimable young man and much beloved by all who knew him. We need scarcely add that Mr. Watson and family with all other mourning relatives and friends have the sincere sympathy of the community in their bereavement. The funeral takes place to-morrow (Thurs.) at 2 o'clock.3a

Among the many institutions of which Galt boasts, none are more conspicuous than the Gore Ins. Co's pal-atial and imposing structure situated on the corner of Main and Ainslie streets. The style is of a Romanesque char-acter, and is built with Connecticut brown-stone, rock-faced base up to the first storey window sills ; above this it is faced with brown pressed brick, tooled portage entry stone trimmings and Terra Cotta carvings. The corner of Main and Ainslie streets is round, having over the main entrance a heavily moulded arch, supported on two Doric columns, and over the arch the Company's name carved in mediaeval letters. This round corner is continued up above the roof, forming a round tower, roofed with Span-ish tiles and terminating in a columned and octagon lantern, with ogee top and flag staff. Total height from the side-walk about eighty-two feet. The Gore has about 125 active agents through Ontario.1a

John Watson
 
27291 Born in 1820 in Scotland, John Watson came to Canada in 1845. By 1847, he opened a foundry in Ayr which built farm implements. The success of the business was made evident when Watson received a gold medal from the Provincial Agricultural Association of Upper Canada in Kingston, but one of many accolades awarded to the company.

Beyond his business pursuits, Watson founded the Ayr Library in the late 1840's and was elected vice-president of the Waterloo Reform Association in 1855.

Death of Postmaster Watson
Ayr's Most Prominent Citizen Suddenly Called


The community was sensibly shocked on Friday afternoon, October 11, when it was announced that Ayr's respected and beloved postmaster had passed away that John George Watson was dead! The transition was sudden so sudden that almost everyone exclaimed, "Why, I saw him on the street yesterday or the day before." True, only a day or two intervened between a vigorous life and death. Though he had slightly exceeded the allotted age of "three score years and ten", he was still active and bid fair to have many years still to his credit, but how true it is that "in the midst of life we are in death." John George Watson was a native of Galt, but came to Ayr in his infancy. Between his birth and his death there was a span of 71 years with the exception of his infancy and college days all those years were spent in this community. All his interests in life were wrapped up in Ayr. Besides being the head of the largest industry in town the John Watson Mfg. Co. Ltd. he held at various periods many positions of trust and honor, and was post-master of the village at his death. These onerous duties he discharged with credit to himself and satisfaction to the public. In his death the community loses a good citizen and the family a kind husband and father. It was perhaps not generally known that Mr. Watson was a P.H.D., having been graduated in Science from Yale University. Of his college life, Mr. Watson was very proud, but prouder still of the fact that he was one of the few pupils of the famous Tassie school, Galt, still surviving. After a lengthy career as a manufacturer, he was appointed postmaster in the year 1903. . .His son, John W. Watson is Assistant Postmaster.2a

27298 A woman of whom the residents of Ayr have every reason to be proud was Mary Watson. In 1903, she became the first principal of the Macdonald Institute of Domestic Science and Art, a part of the Guelph Agricultural College.

The Toronto Globe said: "No other Canadian teacher along these special lines has the standing and experience of Miss Watson."

She graduated from the Philadelphia College of Domestic Science in 1895, taught for two years in Hamilton and then went to Columbia University, New York, graduating in Domestic Art from the Teacher's College in 1900. She later held positions in St. Louis, Missouri, and the Normal School in Hamilton.

As part of her community service, in the Second World War she had charge of the knitting of socks, sweaters and other articles for the Ayr Women's Institute. She died in 1950.1a

Mary Urie Watson 1866-1950

Principal, Macdonald Institute, 1904-1920

Mary Watson was born in Ayr, Ontario, and educated in Toronto. She moved to the United States to further her education in domestic science since no instituion in Canada provided such a program. Watson was a graduate of the Philidalphia Cooking School and also received a Teacher's College Bachelor's Diploma in Domestic Art from Columbia University in New York. After a brief teaching career in New York and Missouri, she returned to Canada in 1901 to become "lady principal" of Adelaide Hoodless' Ontario Normal School of Domestic Science and Art in Hamilton.

In 1903, the Ontario Normal School was transferred to the newly created Macdonald Institute in Guelph. Watson was named Head of the Home Economnics Department within the Insitute and reported to the Dean, Dr. W. H. Muldrew. She succeeded Muldrew as principal of the institute after his death in 1904, quite an accomplishment for a woman in those times.

Watson led Macdonald Institute in its early years, developing several programs and diplomas in domestic science, such as the two-year Housekeeping Certificate and popular three-month short courses. These courses focused on such topics as food and food chemistry, as well as housekeeping practices, including sewing, laundry, and household sanitation. Admission to such programs was offered first to rural women before urban applicants were considered. In 1904, the Macdonald Institute program was described in the United States as the only one that "trains housekeepers scientifically." Furthermore, these "skilled young women" were considered essential for operating modern hospitals.

Watson played a leading role in the early years of the American Home Economics Association, serving as the third Vice-Presidential, and was the only female member of the Canadian Food Board during World War One. Above all, she was known for her devotion to the Institute's students. She developed a close relationship with them that continued long after their graduation. Watson undertook the task of organizing the Institute's first reunion in 1920.2a

27301 This rambling old house has great historical interest, being of an early date (1844) and the birthplace of one of Canada's foremost landscape painters, Homer Watson. The Watson family business was a woollen mill, later taken over by Peddlar and cole and susequently destroyed by fire. The building is a long low structure, consisting of sections of varied height. There is a bay window in the angle of two sections facing Tilt Drive, and a trellised porch between wings on the Doon Village Road side. The apple trees, large maples and out buildings of its prominent corner setting contribute greatly to the rural character of the Village.1a

JOSEPH "JOSH" WAYPER
1858-1915


A resident of Hespeler for forty years, Josh Wayper was a marksman of uncanny ability. He was proprietor of the Queen's Hotel in which his numerous trophies and stuffed animals were on display for the public to see.

He was co-founder of the Hespeler Gun Club which was formed in 1883 and was active for many years. In 1896, the Hespeler four man team led by Wayper won the Ontario Championship, breaking 94 out of 100 clay pigeons.

In 1901 Wayper was champion wing-shot of Canada, killing 199 out of 200 live pigeons to equal the World's Record for this type of competition. In trapshooting, Wayper was three times Canadian champion. He also won the championship gold medal for Ontario several times.

On one occasion he was a member of the Canadian team which went to England for the Bisley competition. In the course of his career, Wayper won a great many lesser events as well.2a

A Verdict Secured Against Hespeler Hotel Men

Must Pay a Widow Whose Husband Was Drowned


Guelph, April 4 -- At the Assize Court here yesterday, at which Justice Rose presided, a peculiar case was tried. Last December James A. Crane was returning home from Hespeler, where he had imbibed rather freely, and when a short distance from the village fell into Kribs' dam, and was drowned.

While in Hespeler he had been drinking at Thomas Hunt's and Josh Wayper's hotels, and his widow, claiming that the accident was directly due to the liquor, brought action against the publicans, claiming $500 damages from each. Mrs. Crane told of the departure of her husband from home Friday morning. She told of the circumstances in which the family were left, living on a rented farm, and how the claims against the estate overbalanced the insurance and all that was coming to them. She had three girls and a boy.

DRUNK WHEN DROWNED

Henry Kribs gave evidence as to the distance of the edge of the dam from the road and the landing of the body. Crane had entered the dam from the Guelph end, having evidently driven past it from Hespeler and then returned. He could not see how a man in possession of his senses could drive into the dam, even if it was dark: the horses would keep the road themselves. Further evidence was produced showing that the unfortunate Crane was drunk at the time of his death, and had been sold liquor by the two hotelkeepers sued.

The jury found a verdict against the defendants with damages assessed at $600 in the case of Hunt and $300 against Wayper.3a

Jack Wayper, the Noted Trap Shot, Has Devised a New Scheme for the Hespeler Gun Club

Hespeler, Jan. 10 -- The Hespeler Gun Club has inaugurated a new system of live-bird scoring. It is an idea of Jack Wayper, the noted trap-shooter, who is a member of the club. Mr. Wayper claims that the present system of scoring is unfair, for it a bird is shot inside the boundary line and falls a couple of feet outside there is no score, whereas should it fall a foot inside, the shooter scores a bird. Mr. Wayper thinks a pigeon falling outside, which is gathered behind the dead line by the shooter, within the three-minute limit allowed, should count its killer halt a bird. The Hespeler Gun Club in its shoots hereafter will allow this rule. It was tried for the first time, with the following result.4a

Promoters Were Here Looking Over the Puslinch Lake Deal - Refused to State Who was Behind the Scheme


Several American promoters, interested in electric railways, were in the city yesterday and drove over the several preliminary lines which have already been surveyed to Puslinch Lake.

When seen by The Mercury this morning at the G.T.R. station prior to leaving for Toronto, although they refused to give their names, and state who were interested in the taking over of the franchise which is owned by the city, it is understood that Mackenzie and Mann are interested in the matter, and that it may have been one of their agents who was in charge of the party that drove over the line yesterday.

"It would not pay us to build the line unless it was extended to Hespeler to connect with the G. H. & _. and it is likely that in the event we take the franchise over that the line is built to Hespeler, to make the connection.

"Puslinch Lake is one of the finest spots in Western Canada for a summer resort, and if we decide to push the proposition we will build one of the finest hotels in any summer resort in Canada. I understand that Mr. Josh Wayper who owned several cottages down on the edge of the lake proposed to remove the buildings to Hespeler. He is making a big mistake. Property in the vicinity of the lake will be worth money in a short time and those who hold will make good.

"We don't care what they do - so far as the summer resort is concerned," he continued, "but we want to give the natives a chance to make good. All we want is the right to the franchise over the road, as we are impressed with the situation and think it would prove a money maker."

"I believe you mean business, all right," stated the Mercury reporter. .......

"Nothing doing," answered the civil engineer, who was in charge of the party. "I have nothing for the press."

Continuing, he stated that the company which he represented, had plenty of money to push the project through, provided the Guelph Radial Railway, who held the franchise, were willing to part with it, and were satisfied to see the proposition go through.

"Give us a chance and we will be satisfied," stated the engineer as he climbed on to the car, followed by several other Toronto and Buffalo capitalists, who are interested in the deal.

"You give us a decent deal and we will build the road," he called out as the train pulled out of the yards5a

Mr. Josh Wayper Preparing for Erection of Big Resort


A long felt want at Puslinch Lake, the popular summer resort of Galt, Hespeler, Preston and Guelph, will be supplied during the coming summer by Mr. Josh Wayper, who is making preparations for the erection of a handsome, commodious and modern summer hotel. The plans for the structure are being drawn up now and it is hoped that the building will be finished before next fall. Puslinch Lake has long been the mecca of holiday visitors and the lack of accommodation is the only drawback so far felt. With the advent of the new hotel, however, Puslinch should be more popular than ever. Then if that electric railway from Galt to Guelph is ever built, the lake will become a summer resort of no mean importance.6a

Death of an Old Citizen

The family of Isaac M. Weaver, for many years a resident of Berlin and Waterloo, have recently received intelligence that he died last week in Detroit. The contemplation of his career must cause sadness to every heart. For many years he was a member of the old firm of J. Hoffman & Co., Berlin having generally the management of the large army of men which that firm employed.We believe he had no superior as a mechanic, and few men meet with the success which attended his early years. When the old firm dissolved - some twenty two or three years ago - the late Jacob Hoffman purchased the interest in the business of his partners and they at once entered upon a new business in Waterloo, where they purchased mills and a large amount of land. The new firm of Hoffman and Weaver was so prosperous that Mr. Weaver was able to put up a splendid residence now occupied by Mr. Geo. Randall. At that time ,he must have been worth a very large amount of money, but after disposing of his mills, and retiring from business, things took a change for the worse. To make a long story short the once active man of business and leading manufacturer took to drinking, lost his property, abandoned his family and died in poverty amongst strangers. It is sad lesson and should be a solemn warning to all not to follow in his footsteps. We are sure all our readers will unite with us in sorrow that a career which was once so promising should end so sadly.2a

Not Dead.

Mr. Isaac M. Weaver, formerly of this town, has written a letter to his family here to assure them that he is not dead - that the report which was received here some months ago of his supposed demise, must have been referred to some other man. To make assurances doubly sure, he has enclosed a photograph of himself, from which his friends can see that, though somewhat older, he looks remarkably well - better in fact than when he left. He is at present residing in Illinois.3a

Death of Mr. Jacob S. Weaver - this gentleman, so long and favorably known to all classes of the people of this section, died at the Commercial Hotel, of which he was proprietor, on Saturday afternoon last. The deceased gentleman was very much respected by all who knew him. Referring to his death the Berlin News writes as follows: - At half past five o'clock on Saturday evening Jacob S. weaver breathed his last, and when the fact became known a deep feeling of sadness and grief was manifested by the people generally, for very few of the citizens of this Town commended more general respect and esteem than Mr. Weaver. It is doubtful if he had a single enemy, so quietly and unostentatiously did he pass through life. Mr. Weaver was born on the old Weaver farm near Heidelberg, but when a mere child his parents moved to Dundas where they carried on an extensive hotel business for many years, being patronize by most all the Waterloo people who in those days of old - when the Great Western Railway or Grand Trunk had no existence - teamed their flour to that place. The writer of this has personal recollections of the great crowds of farmers and teamsters from this locality who were accustomed to steps at the Red Lion Hotel. After Jacob grew up to man's estate he came to this county and has been connected with the hotel business ever since. He has always kept a house specially toted for its quiet and home likeness, few places being so universally known in this respect. The deceased has been quite successful in accumulating property, and leaves family in very good circumstances. His health has been failing for the last year or two and during the past summer he spent some time at the sea shore, the Clinton Springs, and other health resorts, but apparently without much success. His affection was what is known as Bright's disease of the Kidneys. A few weeks ago he too cold and inflammation of the lungs, from which he gradually sank till Saturday evening when the spirit took its departure. Deceased has been a regular attendant at the Presbyterian Church, and his death was peaceful and without a murmur. He leaves a widow and two estimable daughters who have the general sympathy of the entire community for their great loss.

The funeral of the late Mr. Weaver was very largely attended, many having come from Galt, Preston, Hespeler, Waterloo, St. Jacobs, Elmira and other places. The pall bearers were Messrs. A. Tyson, B. H. Unger, H. Kranz, A. Roy, J.A. Mackie and L.D. Bowman. The Rev. Messrs. Tait and Von Parch conducted the religious services.2a

After their marriage he moved on his father's farm, being composed of part of lot No. 15, German Company's Tract. Here they resided until the Grand Trunk Railway was built in 1855, when they sold their large farm and purchased that of Benjamin Shantz and Stafford's farms at Freeport. Here they resided until his death which took place July 6th, 1874. She resided until his death which took place July 6th, 1874. She resided with her son, Moses, on the west side of the Grand River, near Chicopee, where she died. He was ordained as minister of the Gospel for the Mennonite denomination, December 22nd, 1850. He preached regularly and attended frequently at funerals. His time was largely occupied in visiting the sick and giving words of consolation to such who were seeking their spiritual welfare, and his life was a busy one. So much of his time was devoted to his pastoral duties that he was almost unable to attend to his private affairs. Although sacrificing much of his time in the service of the church of his choice, he would not receive any compensation for the time devoted in behalf of the church, but looked for his reward beyond the present life where the faithful labors in His vineyard shall be spiritually rewarded for all ages of eternity. They had a numerous family, being composed of sixteen children"1a

First Mennonite Church

The first church built in Waterloo County was erected in Berlin in 1813, and was known as Benjamin Eby's Meeting House.

Benjamin Eby had come to Canada in 1807 and in 1809 was ordained preacher. Three years later, in 1812, he was ordained bishop. His "parish included sections of Waterloo, Wilmot and Woolwich" (Uttley 1937:27). In 1818 a frame addition, which was to be used as a winter school, was built on to the church. The log meeting house was replaced in 1834 by a larger frame church, and the old building was taken to Breslau to become the first meeting house in that community. (The Breslau church was known as Cressman Meeting House, a name which was changed in 1968 to Breslau Mennonite Church.) A Sunday School was opened in the church in 1841.

Benjamin Eby died in 1853. He was followed by Abraham C. Weber who served the congregation until his death in 1874. In that same year, a division in the church brought about the departure of a group who organized a congregation of Reforming (or Reformed) Mennonites, to become United Mennonites in 1875 and then Mennonite Brethren in Christ in 1883. Their church is the present-day Bethany Missionary Church on Lancaster Street East. Christian Eby was the next minister of the Berlin Mennonite Church, until 1879. The church was known over the years as Benjamin Eby's Church, Christian Eby's Church (from 1854-1904), and the Berlin Church (from 1904 until 1917.) The name of the church became First Mennonite Church in 1917.

A new brick church was built in 1902. A Bible Study School was begun in 1907, and in 1928 a separate brick Bible Study School building was erected. Stirling Avenue Mennonite Church was formed by some members in 1924 as a result of a division in the church.

Of interest: when the new church was built in 1902, the 1834 frame church was bought by D.B. Betzner who moved it to Cedar Street where it became a woodenware business and then a furniture factory. It was destroyed by fire in 1937.2a

Weber.-Abram S. Weber was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., Nov. 15, 1855; died at his home in Berlin, Ont., March 1, 1913; aged 57 y. 3 m. 15 d. He was married to Esther Scheidel in October, 1877. To this union were born 4 sons and 2 daughters. He leaves to mourn his departure his sorrowing widow, 2 sons, 2 daughters, and 2 grandchildren. His death was caused by paralysis of 9 days' duration. He was a kind and loving husband and father and a good neighbor, and lived an exemplary Christian life, having in his younger years united with the Mennonite Church of which he was still a faithful member at the time of his death. Bro. Weber had been in failing health for some time. We believe that he realized his end was drawing near, and he leaves the comforting hope that he was ready to depart from this world and to meet his blessed Savior on the other shore. Funeral services were conducted at the Cressman Church, Breslau, March 3, by Bro. Jonas Snyder in German and Bro. Oscar Burkholder in English.2a

She leaves a sorrowing husband, three step-children (Florence, Orrie and Howard), two brothers, and two sisters. Sister Bauman was in bed seven weeks, suffering from inflammatory rheumatism. She was recovering nicely and was looking forward to again being about her household duties, when without a moment's warning she passed away because of a weak heart. Her death was a shock to the community, nevertheless we mourn not as those who have no hope. She was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church till death. The Floradale congregation, of which she was a member, will miss her greatly. Bro. Bauman and family need our sympathy and prayers. Funeral services were conducted on Mar. 9, at the Elmira Mennonite Church and her body was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery. Bros. Abram Gingerich and Oliver Snider preached.

WEBER, ANNA (sometimes called Nancy), needle-worker and fraktur artist; b. 3 June 1814 in Earl Township, Lancaster County, Penn., the fifth of ten children of John Weber and Catherine Gehman; d. 12 Oct. 1888 in Woolwich Township, Waterloo County, Ont.

Anna Weber, daughter of a Mennonite minister and farmer, immigrated to Upper Canada from Pennsylvania with a party of 13 in April 1825. Her family settled on a farm one mile south of Conestogo in a predominantly Pennsylvania-German Mennonite community. She lived with her parents, and, after the death of her father on 21 Jan. 1854, with her mother, who died on 2 June 1864. For the remainder of her life Anna was moved from household to household within the Mennonite community. She lived at the fringe, and largely at the expense, of her social group until her death, apparently from an accidental overdose of medicine.

After 1835, the year in which Anna had first made a sampler to demonstrate her skill at needlework, she did much stitchery. She made show towels - finely embroidered linen strips decorated with traditional motifs and designs for the hope chests of neighbourhood girls - stuffed animals, including horses and squirrels as toys for children, and hooked mats of hand-dyed woollen materials which depicted stylized scenes.

About 1855 Anna began the painting of distinctive pen and wash fraktur art, which she continued until her death. This form of art had originated in Germany more than two centuries previously but was highly developed by the Pennsylvania-Germans. It is a purely decorative art, often used to illustrate manuscripts, book-plates, and such family records as birth and baptismal certificates. There is a definite lack of perspective in these pieces and scale is ignored. Recurring motifs - hearts, tulips, paired birds, and the tree of life - appear in balanced, usually symmetrical, form. Anna inherited and developed these traditional designs but her actual subjects were usually taken from nature. Instead of the traditional unicorn, for example, Anna would portray a stylized horse.

Practically all of Anna Weber's fraktur works are signed and precisely dated, with the lettering forming an integral part of the painted frame around each design. Her paintings, which resemble art nouveau stained glass or tiles, display a good sense of composition and colours which are soft and yet definite. The whole effect is one of assurance, and presumably pleasure, in these sprightly finished products which were often made as gifts for children.

The majority of fraktur artists, including Mr Altsdorf who probably taught Anna in Pennsylvania, were schoolmasters. A female fraktur artist was an anomaly but Anna was the most original and prolific of Ontario's fraktur artists. Although afflicted with dropsy, arthritis, and the ailments of age, her concentrated efforts produced many fraktur paintings, of which about 60 are extant. Anna Weber was said to have been of "unbrilliant mind," but because of her individualistic temperament she was allowed to sign her paintings - a "sinful" practice in the self-denying Mennonite community. Like much folk art in Canada, Anna's is dominated by nature and her fraktur paintings also reflect her strong ethnic heritage.

Anna Weber (1814-1888), was a Waterloo County Mennonite. Born in Lancaster County, she immigrated to Canada with her parents in 1825. She had strong religious convictions which show in many of her drawings. Most of drawings were done in her later life. A total of sixty to seventy drawings, and three decorated books are the result of her efforts. Anna was one of the last to practice the Fraktur art form in the nineteenth century. By the 1870's and 1880's, the time when she was most active, this tradition was no longer in style in the Germanic settlements of North America. She was considered queer (gshpasich) and strange (sondiboa) by the people who knew her. She remained unmarried and lived with her parents until the death of her mother in 1864 (her father died in 1854). Between 1864 and 1888 she lived with nine different families. She didn't like household chores, and "she drew pictures and helped along as a sideline". Anna suffered a stroke in 1886. It is believed that she either took the wrong medicine, or the wrong medicine was given to her, and she died in 1888.3a

There remain to mourn the departure of a faithful Christian mother, 2 sons (Isaiah and Norman of Breslau), 3 daughters (Abbie of Breslau, Mrs. Ephraim Kinzie of Preston, and Mrs. Titus Shantz of Kitchener), 19 grandchildren, and many relatives and friends. When 18 years of age she accepted Christ as her Saviour, united with the Cressman Mennonite Church, and remained a faithful member until the Lord called her home. She always had a bright testimony of peace with God, appreciated in a very grateful and humble manner her salvation experience, and lived an exemplary life. She will be missed as a true Christian mother, a helpful neighbor, and a living witness to the grace of God. Funeral services were conducted on March 8 in the Cressman Mennonite Church at Breslau by Brethren Jonas Snider and Oscar Burkholder. Texts, Job 14:14; Psa. 71:20,21.2a

When in his nineteenth year he bid adieu to his fatherland and emigrated to America. After arriving at New York in safety he was obliged to work for some time in order to raise sufficient means to defray his expenses across the ocean. In a few years he had, by diligent labor, saved so much from his earnings that he was able to pay the expenses of bringing his parents and others of the family to this country. Some time during the year 1833 or 1834 he, together with his parents and others, moved to Canada and settled near Wilmot Centre, Waterloo County, Ontario, where Mr Weber was married to Elizabeth Schmaus who was born June 29th, 1818, and died June 3rd, 1886. Here they resided about twenty years, then he disposed of his farm and purchased that of Moses Weaver a little east of Heidelberg where they resided until their deaths. He died March 22nd, 1886. Mr. Weber was a man of noble character, industrious and economical. Modesty, coolness and deliberation were some of his characteristics. His descendants are not so much distinguished for being great men as for the uniform private worth of all of them, not intending to convey the idea that they are less able or competent to fill public positions than others but that a certain feature of character impells them always to attend to their own business first.

27454 CALLED AFTER SHORT ILLNESS
ANOTHER VICTIM OF THE PREVALENT DISEASE, PNUEMONIA

There passed away last Friday at the home of her parents on Centre street, Clara B. Weber, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Reuben Weber. The deceased was born at the former home of the family on the 4th concession of Peel township, where she lived with her parents until their removal to Elmira about two years ago. Though she was of a quiet retiring disposition, she took an active part in the work of the Presbyterian church at Hollen, serving as secretary-treasurer of the Ladies' Aid and of the Mission Band, also a Sunday School teacher for a number of years. When she came to Elmira, she also identified herself with the work of the Presbyterian church and taught a Sunday school class. In all her work, she won the love and respect of those with whom she came in contact and will be greatly missed by all, especially by her parents, who are now left childless, she and a brother who died in infancy having been the only children. Though Miss Weber had not been feeling well for almost a month, she took seriously ill only about a week before her death. Pneumonia is a particularly severe form was the cause of her death. The funeral was held on Monday afternoon and was attended by a large number of relatives and friends among whom were some from Galt, Kitchener, Milverton, Waterloo, St. Jacobs, Conestogo, Listowel, Glennallan, Hawkesville, Hollen and Guelph. Rev. W. H. Bartlett conducted the services. The pallbearers were Menno Miller, Art Bricker, Allan Weber, Ion Weber, Clarence Shuh and Wellington Weber.1a

Pioneer Park (Weber/Strasburg) Christian Fellowship Mennonite Church

Early services were held in the homes of the first settlers, perhaps as early as 1833. Services often were held at the home of David Weber who lived across from where the church would be located. David Sherk was ordained deacon to serve the group in 1837, and in the next year, 1838, he was ordained minister. He was followed in 1840 by John Steckle (Stoeckle).
In 1842, David Weber donated one acre of land for a meeting house and burial ground. The deed was dated March 23, 1854, although the meeting house had been built in 1843. A new yellow brick church was built in 1894 on the same site. Noah Stauffer, who had been ordained in 1876 to assist John Steckle, was minister at the time. A Sunday School was organized in the 1890s; Sunday School records date from 1898. In 1899 the first Bible Conference to be held in an Ontario Mennonite church was held in the Weber church.
In 1971-1972 the church was enlarged and completely renovated. During that time - from October 17, 1971 to January 23, 1972 - the congregation met in the Herbert Feick home on Doon Village Road. On September 24, 1872 the congregation celebrated the 130th Anniversary of the building of the first meeting house. The name of the church was changed to Pioneer Park Christian Fellowship Mennonite Church in 1972.
In 1951 the congregation had purchased from Clifford Snider an additional acre of land located behind the church. In 1976, for the sum of $1, the congregation acquired a sixty-five foot strip of land along the south edge of the church property from Major Holdings & Development Co. A new church was built within several feet of the old yellow brick one which was removed; the date on the cornerstone is 1980. The 150th Anniversary of the construction of the first meeting house is to be celebrated in 1993. 2a

St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church

Early Catholic settlers in Berlin travelled to St. Agatha for worship services. Father John Wiriath recorded only six Catholic families in Berlin as of 1837. Father Wiriath was followed by Fathers Peter Schneider and Simon Sanderl who served Berlin from their base at St. Agatha. The next missionaries in the area were the Jesuits, Fathers Lucas Caveng and Bernard Fritsch, who served from 1847. More Catholics settled in Berlin and when it was chosen as the county seat in 1852, with the expected arrival of additional settlers, plans were made to construct a church.
A site at Weber and Young Streets was purchased from Mr. David Weber, and the cornerstone for the church was laid in 1854. This brick church was completed and dedicated in 1856, but was used only on an average of perhaps once a month as the congregation had to share the time of the priests from St. Agatha. While Rev. George Laufhuber was priest from 1857-1859 a Separate School was organized. The congregation was primarily German at this time. Father Laufhuber was followed by Fathers P. Edward Glowacki (or Glowalski) and Francis Breitkopf, and then by Rev. Dr. Louis Funcken (1866-1890). Regular services began in 1866. Additions were made to this church with a new Sanctuary in 1871, and a larger Sacristy in 1881. A new school was built in 1874, and a new convent in 1885.
Land for the present church, adjacent to the old one, was purchased in 1899, sod was turned on Sunday, May 27, 1900 and the cornerstone of the new church building was laid on September 30, 1900. Dedication services were held in the new church on December 13, 1903. The full name of the church is Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows2a

27488 "Eldon D. Weber, President of OGS, 1975-1977, died on 26 February 2004 at the age of 90. He was born in Berlin, Ontario, in 1913, the son of Ephraim Weber and Maria Steckle, and remained proud of his connection with both these pioneer Waterloo County families. He was a longtime member of the Pennsylvania-German Folklore Society, and was present at the PGFS meeting when OGS was founded. He became active provincially at an early stage, serving as a provincial director 1970-1971, and as vice-president before becoming president.
Among his undertakings at the provincial level was a projected series of county-wide gravestone readings, Monumental Transcriptions (1977). Unfortunately, only the first volume, concerning Simcoe County, was published. He chaired Seminar 1976, held in Waterloo. OGS awarded him an honorary life membership in 1984.
Throughout the 1970s he was also active locally, helping to found Waterloo-Wellington branch in 1973, editing its newsletter for many years and serving as chair 1978-1982. Access to two ledgers of 1870s Waterloo County births and deaths led him to publish them, many years before the Registrar-General officially released the information to the public.
As well as genealogies of the Weber and Steckle families, his greatest contribution to family history in Ontario was in the republication of Ezra Eby's Biographical History of Waterloo Township (1895) in 1971. He combined the original volumes and the 1931 supplement with maps and other new material and, most usefully, an every-name index. This publication, referred to locally simply as 'The Eby Book', is the first port of call for Waterloo County genealogists. It had become a rare book, but the Weber edition is available in libraries across North America.
His reputation in the community meant that many Mennonite families deposited copies of documents with him. His papers are now at Conrad Grebel College, University of Waterloo.
In addition to his genealogical work, Eldon was active in the United Church of Canada, both locally in Kitchener-Waterloo and at conference level. The KW Council of Churches named him Layman of the Year in 1969. He also served on the board of the KW Humane Society for almost forty years from 1944.
Following his retirement from active committee work, his second marriage to Helen Merner gave his old age a new outlook and much happiness."1a

27491 Bishop Elias Weber," the eldest son of David and Catherine (Eby) Weber,was born in Berlin, February 22nd, 1834. His boyhood days were spent on his father's farm. During the winter months he attended the common public schools. On March 20th, 1855, he was married to Mary Shoemaker. They now reside on the old "Kunniman Farm," one mile west of Breslau, on the Berlin Road. They have a family of nine children, namely: VII Sarah, died young; VII Simon, died young; VII Lovina, married to Jacob Woolner; VII Leah, died young; VII Nancy, married to Aaron Schiedel; VII Lydia, married to David Reist; VII Amos, married to Rosilla Wambold and resides at home with his father; VII Israel, and VII Mary. In his younger days he joined the church of his choice, the Mennonite, and a few years later he was chosen as a deacon. He was afterwards called to the ministry on the Cressman field of labor, and finally, upon the death of Bishop Joseph Hagey, he was ordained bishop. He is of genial and sociable disposition, but guards himself against frivolity. He is generally well received by the people by all, and it may be said of him that he is one of those men who make for themselves many friends and few enemies. His talent as a minister compares favorably with that of the majority of our day. His education is rather limited, but he has studied and made good progress in the acquisition of Bible knowledge. His preaching is spiritual and at most times powerful and convincing, having great effect on the large audience generally present. That he has the confidence and high esteem of the whole congregation is evident from the fact that he was chosen as one of the candidates for the office of bishop. May he be spared for many years to come, and may his labors be crowned with glorious success in winning souls for the Lord."1a

Weber, Elias (1834-1909)

Elias Weber: bishop and farmer; born 22 February 1834 in Berlin (now Kitchener), Ontario to David and Catherine (Eby) Weber. He was the oldest child in a family of five sons and six daughters. He was a grandson of Bishop Benjamin Eby. On 20 March 1855 Elias married Mary Shoemaker (6 April 1832-14 November 1921). They had six daughters and three sons. Elias died 23 January 1909.
By vocation Elias Weber was a farmer; he and his family lived west of the town of Breslau. His education was limited to the primary schools of his day.
As a young man Elias Weber joined the Cressman congregation at Breslau. In 1867 he was ordained as a deacon for the congregation, and in 1874 as a minister. After the death of Bishop Joseph Hagey , he was ordained in 1879 as the bishop for the Waterloo Township churches. The major crisis of his bishopric was the division within the Ontario Mennonite Conference that led to the formation of the Old Order Mennonite conference in the late 1880s. Abraham Martin was the conservative bishop in Waterloo County, who held responsibility for the congregations in Woolwich Township. In 1885 a number of converts resulted from a series of evening meetings in Woolwich Townships. Martin opposed these revivalistic-style meetings and refused to instruct or baptize the group of over 30 coverts. After some delay, Elias Weber agreed to baptize the converts, which he did in three different groups from May-July, 1885. A series of other issues found Bishops Martin and Weber on different sides, and in 1889 the division became final.
Elias Weber also helped to organize the Alberta Conference (later the Alberta-Saskatchewan Conference and still later the Northwest Mennonite Conference ) in July 1903. He ordained Amos Bauman as the bishop for the three-congregation conference at that time.
Elias Weber was said to have a genial, but cautious, personality. He was not as gifted speaker as some other leaders in the conference, nor did he leave a legacy of writings. But Weber provided moderate leadership at a time more educated, aggressive Mennonite leaders from the U.S. were influencing the Ontario churches in more progressive directions. 2a

Breslau (Cressman) Mennonite Church

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

27493 Mrs. L. Schroer Has Passed Away Was an Estimable Woman

On Saturday evening, May 28, Elmira lost an estimable lady in the person of Mrs. Louis Schroer, who died after months of suffering. She had some weeks ago been operated on for a growth, but this was unavailing. She suffered great pain and it was borne with fortitude. Toward the end the pain lessened but she gradually became weaker and could not digest her food. Mrs. Schroer was born in Woolwich Township the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Weber. Her age was 51 years, 3 months and 14 days. Twenty-eight years ago she wedded Mr. Louis Schroer and they took up their residence in Berlin, where they resided 15 years. Mr. Schroer then purchased the Allemang farm east of Elmira and there they have since resided. Their union was blessed with six children, two daughters and four sons. The daughters are: Erma and Martha; the sons: Charles, Henry, Claude and George. Mrs. Schroer's parents are dead. Five brothers, Louis K. Weber, of Hawkesville; Charles and Philip Weber of Kitchener; August Weber, of Elmira and Henry Weber of Washington, D.C.; and two sisters; Mrs. Louis Schmermund, near Elmira and Miss Katie Weber of Elmira, survive her. Mrs. Schroer was a sterling woman; a good helpmate and a good mother. Though of a quiet nature she made firm friends, who admired her many good qualities of head and heart. On Tuesday her remains were laid to rest in the Elmira Union Cemetery. There was a short service at the family residence at 2 o'clock, after which the cortege proceeded to St. James Lutheran Church, where Rev. John Strempfer conducted the funeral services, following which interment took place. The funeral was largely attended by relatives and friends, who mourned sincerely her death. The condolences of the community are being extended to the bereaved husband and family over their irreparable loss.1a

27509 WEBER, Emanuel Lloyd - We are very sad to announce the death of Emanuel Lloyd Weber, on Wednesday, May 9, 2007, at St. Mary's General Hospital, Kitchener. Survived by his sisters, Selina Brubacher, Lydia Freeman, Susanna (Leonard) Freeman, Martha (Mel) Eby and his twin brother, Amos Lorne (Grace); his brother-in-law, Henry (Marcella) Martin and many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents, Amos and Lovina (Martin) Weber; his sister, Irene Martin, and brothers, Clayton and Ivan, and brother-in-law, Gordon Freeman. Lloyd touched everyone he met with warmth and limitless energy. He put his heart into everything he did, and welcomed and enjoyed every challenge he encountered. Lloyd was born in Waterloo County, May 30, 1933. After graduating from Western University in Economics in 1961, Lloyd went into the banking business and handled internal audits. The work was tending to become too routine after three years and, by chance he got to export farm equipment to the West Indies and Europe. Being born and raised on a farm, he was more attuned to this aspect of life than banking. In fact, he had such agricultural empathy that on a trip to Jamaica once, he went into the sugar cane fields and immediately saw some of the problems with equipment and came back to Canada to develop a new machine to speed up the cane harvest. The Jamaicans are still employing this technology, along with some of his innovative irrigation equipment. In 1966, Lloyd took a giant step from exporting tractors and farm equipment to importing eyelashes. Lloyd discovered a new eyelash that was available for the market in North America. He obtained samples and casually handed them out to a few girls at a party one night. Shortly following Lloyd was besieged for more pairs of colored eyelashes. Lloyd would become the chief designer of Cezanne Lashes. He was the front man marketing to New York, Paris, Montreal and other fashion centers. Lloyd would go on to create the ever-popular Whisper Lash. Lloyd's signature credits include his furniture business ventures. Despite some difficult times with start-up, Lloyd's creative dedication would go on to craft simpler and bolder forms of reproductions with a suitably traditional feeling. Lloyd always maintained that it was possible to evoke the past with carefully selected modern furnishings if your budget can't stretch to antiques. Lloyd has now moved on by bequeathing his body to the McMaster University for medical education and research. We wish to thank Dr. Tom Samolczyk, Dr. Glenn Martin for their compassion and kindness. Thanks also to the wonderful caregivers of Cambridge Memorial Hospital and St. Mary's General Hospital "Your family and friends will miss you."1a

27515 Ephraim Weber: teacher, writer; b. 20 November 1870 near Berlin (now Kitchener ), Ontario to Andrew Weber and Veronica (Shantz) Weber. He was the oldest of four sons. In 1909 he married schoolteacher Annie Melrose in Calgary, Alberta . They had no children. Weber d. 9 March 1956 in Victoria, British Columbia .

Weber left his father's farm near Berlin in 1890, to attend Berlin High School. His teachers, and schoolmates such as William Lyon Mackenzie King, Canada's future prime minister, encouraged in him a deep appreciation for music, literature, and current affairs. He taught school for one year in Ontario, but in 1896 his asthma led him to seek the drier climate of the North West (now Alberta), where Waterloo County Mennonites, including his own family, had homesteaded around Didsbury in 1894. (It was Weber's maternal grandfather Jacob Y. Shantz , a key figure in the settlement of Russian Mennonites in Manitoba during the 1870s, who took leadership also in the settlement by Swiss Mennonites of the Didsbury area.). Weber's passion by this time had turned to writing: from 1896 to 1902 Weber contributed actively to the Mennonite-based Young People's Paper , published in Elkhart, Indiana; from 1902 to 1904 he sought out the stimulation of fellow writers in Philadelphia and New Hampshire. However, meeting little further success as a writer, he returned to Alberta where he worked on the family's farms. Then, after attending Calgary Normal School, he taught briefly in Calgary. From 1910 to 1917, eager for the opportunity to do more specialized teaching, he pursued MA and PhD studies in French and, later, German literature, at Queen's University in Ontario and the University of Chicago. The North American sentiment against things German conspired with other factors to block his completing his PhD, and he again returned to Canada, this time to take up a series of teaching positions in Saskatchewan from 1917 to 1933: Lajord, Outlook, Oxbow, Battleford. During his retirement he lived with his wife in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. and Victoria, BC...1a

He was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church and well esteemed in the community at large. He was known as a man of integrity and dependability and possessed of a quiet dignity and modesty. He was the incarnation of the common virtues of life, so often undervalued, nevertheless they are what make men and nations great. His self-controlled speech was a desirable quality that all Christians might well covet. His sudden passing in the night while asleep is a loud call to all to prepare to meet their God in peace. His passing will leave a vacant place, and memory will treasure his personality "till we meet again." The services were conducted at the First Mennonite Church, in charge of Bros. C. F. Derstine and 0. Burkholder. Sermon, "The Ministry of Hard Knocks and Affliction." II Cor. 4 :16,17.2a

Weber.-George Abram Weber passed away at his home at Parkway, Kitchener, Ont. , on Thursday, Aug. 21, 1941, after an illness of about six weeks. Bro. Weber was born on June 24, 1879 and passed away on the farm of his birth; aged 62 y. 1 m. 28 d. He is survived by his wife (nee Malinda Woolner), with whom he was joined in holy wedlock 39 years ago at Nachez; also by 5 daughter, Vera, Mrs. Urbin Snider of Bloomingdale, Mabel, Mrs. Clayton Siebert, at home, Edna, Mrs. Edgar Martin of Elmira, Gladys, Mrs. Roy Shantz of Kitchener, and Mildred, at home. Eight grandchildren also survive. He was predeceased by 1 daughter who died in infancy. Bro. Weber's life and service was a rich boon to the church that he so faithfully served. He was known as a kind, patient, faithful and loyal servant of God. He will be missed, his helpful counsel will be missed, but we mutually rejoice in the fullness of his life, and his usefulness well nigh to the close of his life. Bro. Weber served the First Mennonite Church as Deacon for 30 years. He was Secretary of the Mennonite Mission Board for 25 years, Treasurer of the Bible School Board for a number of years, Member of the Deacons' Welfare Board. Bro. Weber during his lifetime held many more positions of trust. A loving tribute of respect was rendered Bro. Weber by his fellow deacons, ministers, and bishops, some fifty, who rose when his body was carried into the church building, then viewed the body first, and proceeded together to the cemetery, where they sang, "Blest be the tie that binds." The funeral services were in charge of the pastor, Bro. C. F. Derstine, and associate minister, Bro. Merle Shantz, conducted at First Mennonite Church, Kitchener, Ont.

Bloomingdale (Schneider or Snyder) Mennonite Church

Services began in 1824, and in 1826 a first meeting house, known as Schneider's or Snyder's, was built northwest of Bloomingdale, and east of the Grand River, on land (part Lot 7) donated by Jacob Schneider. Henry Weber was the first minister to this congregation, from 1824 until 1854. He was followed by Moses Erb who was ordained minister to the congregation on April 14, 1854. The church building was primarily used as a school in the beginning; the first teacher was John Bauman from Pennsylvania. Church services were held in homes. Dorothy Sauder, in her 1972 history of the church, states that "Prior to 1860, Schneider's was the only [Mennonite] place of worship on the Grand River and, until the 1889 Martin schism, it was one with the Martin congregation with ministers serving both groups" (Sauder 1972:8). Services were held on a two-week schedule, at one meeting house and then at the other.
Snyder's was affected by division in the church in the early 1870s. The majority of the congregation joined the Reforming (or Reformed) Mennonites, a group organized by Solomon Eby on May 15, 1874, and from 1875-1879 the meeting house was used almost exclusively by them. It was here that the conference was held on March 23, 1875 in which the New Mennonites and the Reforming (or Reformed) Mennonites joined together as the United Mennonites. However, because the original deed to the church property had been lost or perhaps never duly executed, a new deed was drawn up on January 15, 1879, giving ownership of building and property to the group of more conservative Mennonites in the congregation.
The present church was built in 1878 on approximately the same site as the first meeting house. Renovations to the church building were carried out in 1951. One main entrance, to replace the two separate entrances, was part of the changes made. Further improvements were made in 1985. The name of the church is now Bloomingdale Mennonite Church.2a

27547 Henry Weber," generally known by his descendants as "Heiner," a native of Switzerland, was born about the year 1690. His father, Hannes" Weber, was a strict adherent of the Protestant faith. After the decease of his father, in 1821, Henry, with his brothers, Christian and John, emigrated to America. It is not known where they arrived but in all probability at Philadelphia as we find they settled in Earl Township, Lancaster County. It is not definitely known where Christian and John settled. One report in the hands of the writer states that they left many heirs. Of Henry there are numerous descendants. He was married to Anna Hershi. † They resided near Blue Ball. Their family consisted of several children. The names of three of the sons have been received, namely: II Christian, II George, and Henry."1a

He was married to a Miss Hershey,† sister to his brother Christian's wife. They resided in Earl Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, on the old Weber homestead. To them were born several children, namely: III Henry, III Daniel, and three daughters whose names were not received. We shall here follow the descendants of III Henry Weber who was born in 1757 and was married to Veronica Hershey.* They resided on the old Weber homestead near Blue Ball, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. To them was born a family of seven children, namely: IV Benjamin, IV Abraham, IV David, IV Henry, IV Franklin, IV Daniel, and IV John. Of the named family the three sons, David, Franklin, and John, never lived in Canada. Their descendants are to be found in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, while the remaining four sons, namely, Benjamin, Abraham, Henry, and Daniel, moved to Canada during the beginning of the present century and settled in Waterloo County, Ontario, where their numerous descendants are to be found. We shall now give their descendants in their proper order."1a

She accepted her Lord as her personal Saviour in her early youth and remained faithful until the end. She bore a faithful testimony to her family, and to the community. As a mother in the home she will be greatly missed. She always had a friendly disposition and was very much interested in the welfare of her home, her family, the Church and all its activities. She especially exercised her talent in song. We trust that our loss is her eternal gain and that she has gone to occupy a beautiful mansion above which God has prepared for His own. Funeral services were held Dec. 30, at the home and at the Shantz Mennonite Church. Bros. Manasseh Hallman and L. H. Witmer officiated. Burial in the Shantz Cemetery.

Rest on, dear Mother, your labors are o'er,
Your willing hands will toil no more.
A faithful mother true and kind,
No friend on earth like you we'll find

WEBER - A sad and fatal accident occurred on the 9th of January, resulting in the death of our dear brother, Isaac Weber, of Berlin, Ontario. On the above date, about noon, he started for his home a short distance south-east of Berlin, in company with Bro. Samuel Cressman, and when near the intersection of King and Cedar Strs, the king-bolt of his vehicle dropped out, throwing both men violently to the frozen ground, stunning them. The latter soon recovered, but Bro. Weber was carried to a house near by, he however recovered so far that he could be taken home. Medical aid had been promptly summoned, and his injuries were not considered fatal, but on Sunday following he was taken with an epileptic stroke, rendering him speechless, and from that time he began to sink until Tuesday the 12th when he passed away. He leaves a sorrowing companion, three adopted children (one married), an aged mother, one brother and one sister, besides many near and dear friends who deeply mourn their loss. Bro. Weber was a consistent member of the Mennonite church since his youth, and one of the pioneer Sunday school workers in our church. He always took a lively interest in everything pertaining to the prosperity of the Master's cause. His remains were conveyed to their last earthly resting place at C. Eby's M.H., on the 14th. Funeral services by David Hostetler, of Ohio, in German, and by David Garber, of Ohio, in English, to a house filled to its utmost capacity with sympathizing hearers. Text Isa. 3:10, 11. Bro. Weber had reached the age of 56 years and 8 months. J.Z.K.

27573 Isaac Weber," was born at Conestogo, Waterloo County, Ontario, September 19th, 1829. On April 13th, 1851, he was married to Magdalena, daughter of Rev. Henry and Mary(Kaufmann) Shuh. She was born at Natchez, near Berlin, Waterloo County, November 29th, 1829, and died July 10th, 1803. After their marriage they moved to Conestogo where he was engaged in the wagon and carriage building business, and also carried on blacksmithing in connection. In 1868 he retired from business and moved on a farm in Howick Township, Huron County, Ontario, where they resided until their deaths. In 1871 he was ordained as a minister of the Mennonite body which position he held until his death. He was a good man, a kind father, and a popular minister. As a rule he generally had the satisfaction to preach to well filled houses. His sermons were short and pointed. Many a weary pilgrim was encouraged to continue his service in the Lord's vineyard, while sinners were convinced of their folly of thus continuing their careless lives and were persuaded to quit sin and follow Christ. The church lost a good worker when he passed away, but let us hope that our loss proved to be his eternal gain. He died February 5th, 1892. They had a family of eight children"1a

Martin Meeting House

According to Isaac Horst, "Martins meeting house was the first of the Old Order places of worship to be built. A meeting house is reported to have been built in 1830; burial was begun in the adjoining cemetery in 1831. Martins was aptly named. The first three bishops of the area were Martins, all descended from the pioneer, Peter Martin. The land on which the house stands was formerly owned by Martins (1979:376)." Peter Martin, Jr. purchased 220 acres of land from his brother, Henry Martin, on May 8, 1824. Apparently he set aside four acres for a meeting house and burying ground at that time. The first burial is reported to have been that of Peter Martin, Sr., who died March 2, 1831. The meeting house was enlarged in 1900.
John Weber was the first minister, followed by Abraham W. Martin, Samuel Weber, Paul Martin, Tobias Martin and Urias Martin. At one time surrounded by countryside, the meeting house and cemetery are now completely encircled by the commercial development brought about by the rapid expansion northward of the city of Waterloo.2a

John worked for Mutual Life of Canada before heeding the call of his country in the Second World War joining the R.C.A.F. at the outbreak of the War. He rose to the rank of Squadron Leader and was responsible for the training of Allied pilots at Trenton and in England during the Battle of Britain. He met his wife Elinore in the Air Force and they wed in 1943. Upon his return to civilian life, he worked as Office Manager and Supervisor of Group Sales for the Mutual Life where he worked until his retirement in 1978. John was a dedicated husband, father and grandfather and had many passions in this life, the greatest of which was music. He followed this dream as a young man playing the trumpet in bands in Ontario. Living in Manitoba, John was a member of the Fort Garry United Church Choir for over half a century and was an ardent singer in Barbershop quartets, being a lifetime member of the S.P.E.B.Q.S.A. John's other passion was golf which he played, like many of us, with varying degrees of proficiency. John was a long time member of the Wildewood Club where he spent endless hours, from March to November, enjoying the fresh air, sunshine, and companionship of good friends and family. John will be remembered by all he met as a kind and considerate man and we all mourn his passing. A service commemorating his life was held at Fort Garry United Church on Tuesday, February 6, 2007.1a

27660 Reesor -- Lydia Ann Weber was born at Waterloo, Ont., May 11, 1891; died Dec. 29, 1938, at Markham, Ont.; aged 47 y. 7 m. 18 d. Sister Reesor was a daughter of Joseph S. and the late Mary Ann (Shantz) Weber of Waterloo. In 1905 during a revival held by Bro. A. D. Wenger, she confessed the Lord as her Saviour and the same year was baptized and became a member of the Mennonite Church at Waterloo. On Dec. 20, 1916, she was married to Bro. Joseph B. Reesor of Markham. To this union 9 children were born (Mary, Lewis, Martha, Annie, Eva, David, John, Esther, and Ruth). Seven of these have confessed Jesus as their Saviour and are members of the church. She also leaves an aged father (living in Saskatchewan), 7 brothers (Allan, Joseph, and Byron of Waterloo; Lewis S., missionary to Argentina, S. A.; Newton of Ft. Wayne, Ind., mission; Orphen of Baden, Orval of London), and 3 sisters Mrs. A. R. Burkholder of Markham, Mrs. Herbert Snyder of Waterloo, Mrs. Leonard Snyder, Waterloo, Mrs. Delton Schmitt of Waterloo). One sister (Mrs. Nelson Martin) died a number of years ago while they had charge of Toronto Mission. There also remains a sorrowing mother-in-law (Mrs. Tillman Reesor of Markham), who feels very keenly the loss of a loving daughter who kindly cared for her. The church at Markham, also the surrounding community, is grieved because of the loss of a Christian mother who was so much needed in the home, but we humbly yield as she also did before her passing and say with her, "The Lord's will be done." She had not been in good health for some time, and less than a week before her passing developed a slight attack of pneumonia. Having a weak heart, the two conditions proved too much for her and she triumphantly passed away. The same day she requested her family to sing for her at the bedside. She helped to sing the chorus of the Sweet Bye and Bye." The one comforting thought of the sorrowing husband, family, church circle, and the community is the knowledge that a loving mother has entered the courts above to be with her Lord. Funeral services were held Jan.1 at the home by Bro. A. D. Grove, Bro. Cockburn of the Congregational Church and Bro. Oscar Burkholder of Breslau who preached the sermon. Text, Jno. 11:25, 26.1a

Mrs. Wildfang was a practical Christian, having developed such by the long and trying years of pioneer days. She was a student of the Bible. The Bible was to her, the living Word of God. In it she found inspiration and strength for her soul life, light for her pathway and comfort in every hour of trial and suffering. The children are: Mary (Mrs. Geo. Stabler) Tavistock; Lydia (Mrs. Menno Kaufman) Elmwood; Noah, Elmwood; and Moses Wildfang, of Kitchener, Ont. Her brothers, Noah. Weber, Listowel; Amos Weber, Strassburg.

She was converted when a young girl and united with the Mennonite Church to which faith she remained steadfast until death. She is survived by her father and two brothers, Amos and Urias. Her mother died when she was quite small. She was a dutiful and affectionate daughter and sister and quite early in life took her mother's place in the home. She underwent an operation for goitre which proved fatal the following day. About 20 years ago during a severe sickness she was privileged to have a glimpse into the supernatural realm and saw her mother with the angels. The angels told her they would come again. During the last hours of her life, she had a similar vision, but this time the angels told her that she could go along. Her last words were "I am going home," and her spirit quietly slipped away to be with Jesus, her mother, and the holy angels. Her life and testimony have left a profound impression on all those who knew her. Funeral services were held at the First Mennonite Church, Kitchener, Ont., on Feb. 4, 1929, conducted by Bros. C. F. Derstine, S. F. Coffman and pastor Wing. Text, Isa. 40:1; Psa. 23:4. Interment in the cemetery adjoining, beside her mother.1a

Sask., was born Dec. 1, 1889, in Waterloo Co., Ont., died in the General Hospital, Calgary, Alta., March 20, 1926; aged 36 y. 3 m. 20 d. She leaves a sorrowing husband with a family of three duaghters (sic) and an adopted son.. Towards fall of 1925 she began to complain of not being well, and as there were no signs of improvement she was brought to the home of Bro. E.W. Bricker, Calgary, where for some time she was under the doctor's care. Later it was decided that an operation was necessary, which took place in the General Hospital, and for some time good hopes were held out for her recovery. She however took a turn for the worse and though many prayers ascended to the throne of grace in her behalf, she gradually became weaker and finally passed on to her reward. While under the hand of affliction she suffered considerably and frequently expressed a desire to leave the world and be with Christ. On March 21 a funeral service was conducted by E. Hansell at the funeral home of Foster & Foster, Calgary, after which the remains were brought to Aldersyde and from there taken to the home of Bro. T.E. Bowman on March 22 where the relatives of the departed sister met and a short service conducted by Bro. I. Miller and then taken to the Mt. View Mennonite Church for funeral service and burial. Services at the church conducted by N.B. Stauffer. Text, Jno. 16:16, selected by Sister Bricker some weeks before her death. Bro. Bricker has the sympathy of a large circle of the brotherhood and friends who with him in humble submissiveness say, "Thy will be done."1a

Menno L. Weber, former Reeve and for many years an active merchant of Elmira, died Friday evening, March 18th, at his home, 27 Park Street, following a short but sudden illness. Mr. Weber would have marked his 82nd birthday on Tuesday of this week.

Mr. Weber was well-known in Elmira and throughout the district. He was born on a farm a mile and half north of Elmira, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Solomon Weber, early pioneers of Waterloo County. Mr. Weber's early days were spent on the farm of his father before he left for Seaforth to learn the mercantile trade.

Returning to Elmira, Mr. Weber started in the mercantile business in 1882, forming a partnership with Alozono Erb. When Mr. Erb died in 1904, Mr. Weber carried on the well-established general store trade until about 1912, when he sold out to J. D. Merner.

Mr. Weber's active interest in community affairs saw him serve Elmira as Reeve, then the highest municipal office in the village. He was also a member of the Elmira Chamber of Commerce and for two years was president of this organization.

For many years he was a director of the Great West Felt Co.

A member of the United Church, Mr. Weber was also Sunday school superintendent in his younger days. He was a Past Grand Brother of the I.O.O.F. He was initiated into the lodge on February 19th, 1879, being a member of the order of 59 years. Mr. Weber attained the highest office in the lodge in 1880, when he was Noble Grand. A few years ago he received his fifty-year jewel for a half century of continuous service to his home lodge and the order in general.

Surviving Mr. Weber are his wife, (nee Margaret Schroder), and four sisters, Mrs. W. Behrens of Elmira, Mrs. W. Baetz of Cleveland, Mrs. E. Walmsley of Chicago and Mrs. A. E. Devitt of Waterloo.

A large number of friends and acquaintances paid final tribute to the memory of Menno Weber when the funeral service was conducted from his late residence on Monday afternoon. The profusion of floral tributes signified the high esteem in which Mr. Weber was held in Elmira and district.

Rev. A. W. Fosbuary, Rev. G. D. Little and Rev. C. H. Cornwell officiated at the service. Mr. Oscar Weichel sang, "Nearer My God to Thee," with piano accompaniment by Mrs. D. D. Ratz. Members of the Elmira I>O>O>F. lodge conducted the ceremony at the grave. Interment was made at the Elmira Cemetery.3a

In 1873 he entered the ministry of the Mennonite Brethren in Christ Church. Had circumstances placed him in a different sphere where libraries and good schools had surrounded him in his younger years, he might now rank with our best and most renowned ministers of the day. He has attained for himself the merited distinction of being considered more than an ordinary theologian. He preaches in the German language only. He has rendered good service for his master. Many a heart-cheering sermon he has preached during the last twenty years. He is exceedingly entertaining in his ordinary conversations. In his delivery of a sermon no claim to oratory is made. It is a great pity that he is not capable of preaching in the English language."1a

27736 Martin. - Naomi (Weber) Martin was born in Waterloo, Ont., June 29, 1896; died at the Toronto Mission Home Friday evening, May 20, 1921; aged 24 y. 10 m. 22 d. She was united in marriage to Nelson B. Martin March 21, 1917. To this union were born twins who died in infancy. Sister Martin's illness was of very short duration. She had been visiting at her father's home for a few days. On Thursday morning, May 19, she complained of sore throat and felt that she had better go home to the Mission. On her arrival there at noon she took a few hours' rest after which she felt a good deal better. The physician said that there is nothing serious, only an attack of [tonsilitis]. The following day there was a turn for the worse and at 8 o'clock in the evening she went to be with her Lord. She confessed Christ at the early age of twelve and gave a brilliant testimony of absolute trust in Jesus until her hope was realized. Her labors at the Mission were greatly blessed among the children and the mothers. We think she will be greatly missed, yet are firmly convinced that this is God's will, and that His way is best. She leaves to mourn her sudden departure a loving husband, an aged grandmother, father, mother, five sisters and seven brothers, as well as a large circle of relatives and friends. A funeral service was held at the Mission on Sunday afternoon conducted by Bro. L. W. Hoover, Markham. On Monday morning the body was taken to her father's home, north of Waterloo, from whence the funeral was held in the afternoon. The funeral services in the Waterloo Church were conducted by the brethren Jonas Snider, S. F. Coffman, and Oscar Burkholder. Texts, I Tim. 6:12; I Cor. 13:13; Matt. 24:44.1a

27739 Erb Street (David Eby) Mennonite Church

Early services which began around 1837 were held in private homes. Land at the corner of Erb Street and Hallman Road, where the present-day cemetery is located, was donated by David Eby Sr. on July 14, 1851; a red brick church known as David Eby's Church was built in the same year. The first minister in the new church was Jacob M. Oberholtzer who served from 1852 to 1874. He was followed by Elias Schneider (1874-1889), Jonas Snider (1892-1900), Newton Weber (1921-1923), and Noah Hunsberger (1923-1929).
Due to a difference of opinion in the David Eby congregation, Sunday School classes were held at first in a private home, that of Levi Groff, beginning in 1887. The dissension which resulted culminated in a division in the church in 1889; the minister, Elias Schneider, and the deacon, Menno S. Shantz, left the church and joined with the Old Order Mennonites of Woolwich Township. The following year, 1890, saw the commencement of "Edification Meetings", which were held in the homes of members of the David Eby congregation. These meetings later became the Young People's Bible Meetings.
By the beginning of the twentieth century, it was recognized that the church building was either in need of repair or in need of complete replacement. Consideration was given to building a new church on the same site or on a site on King Street North. A decision was made to accept from Samuel S. Snider the donation of a parcel of land which was also on Erb Street, but nearer town. Excavation of the foundation for the new church began in the Spring of 1902. A dedication service was held on August 17, 1902. A parsonage was built in 1929 on land donated by Herbert Snider, the son of Samuel Snider. The church building was renovated and enlarged in 1949-1950; a dedication service was held on April 9, 1950. Further renovations were made in 1974..1a

Martin Meeting House

According to Isaac Horst, "Martins meeting house was the first of the Old Order places of worship to be built. A meeting house is reported to have been built in 1830; burial was begun in the adjoining cemetery in 1831. Martins was aptly named. The first three bishops of the area were Martins, all descended from the pioneer, Peter Martin. The land on which the house stands was formerly owned by Martins (1979:376)." Peter Martin, Jr. purchased 220 acres of land from his brother, Henry Martin, on May 8, 1824. Apparently he set aside four acres for a meeting house and burying ground at that time. The first burial is reported to have been that of Peter Martin, Sr., who died March 2, 1831. The meeting house was enlarged in 1900.
John Weber was the first minister, followed by Abraham W. Martin, Samuel Weber, Paul Martin, Tobias Martin and Urias Martin. At one time surrounded by countryside, the meeting house and cemetery are now completely encircled by the commercial development brought about by the rapid expansion northward of the city of Waterloo.2a

27774 The Wissler-Cascaden house, a two-storey red brick Georgian home was built in 1842 by John Wissler, a Waterloo Township pioneer who arrived from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in 1834. One year after his arrival Wissler established the Eagle Tannery. A shoemaking, harness making and mercantile business soon sprang up in conjunction with the tannery. This industry, including the workers homes on nearby Bridge Street, formed the nucleus of the settlement of Lexington.
Wissler spared no expense in the construction of his home, elaborate window and door surrounds were included along with a plaster cornice in the drawing room. The most striking feature of the interior, however, is the two-storey front entrance hall which rises a full twenty feet to a magnificent plaster medallion on the ceiling. Access is gained through two arches which rest on moulded plaster shells and frame a cherry stairway which climbs to the attic level.
A number of additions have been made to the home. The first, a two-storey addition to the west side was completed around 1858. The second, which contained a bake oven, schnitz oven, ash oven and smoke house, was added behind the first between 1859 and 1875. The last addition, this time on the south side, provided a one and a half storey salt box kitchen which was designated to serve as the doddy wing at the turn of the century.
The property was sold to Samuel Weber in 1873. It remained in the Weber and Shantz families for over one hundred years until the late 1970s when it was converted into apartments and fell into disrepair. The present owners, Ron and Wendy Cascaden, have made a commitment to restoring the house.
All of the exterior elevations of the Wissler-Cascaden House and the front hill are deemed to be of both architectural and historical significance.1a

Shortly after their marriage he moved to New Hamburg where he was engaged in the milling business. Thus we see that he was one of the early pioneers of Wilmot Township. In 1839 he experienced religion and labored six years as a local preacher. In 1849 he entered the itinerant ministry in which he remained in active service until old age and partial blindness caused his retirement. He was then placed on the superannuated list. During the time he was a local preacher he preached 500 sermons, and during his active ministry he delivered 5370 sermons. During the last ten years of his life he found a pleasant home and loving care in the home of his son-in-law, Frederick Guggisberg of Walkerton, Ontario. After a short illness he passed quietly and peacefully away to mansions beyond, February 8th, 1889. His wife died in the year 1880. Their family consists of eight children"1a

Jacob Merner with his wife and family emigrated from Germany and settled on a farm miles west of New Hamburg in 1837. Several of the ten children still survive, among them being Mr. Christian Merner of whom a sketch appears elsewhere. Wm. Smith had the first blacksmith shop. It was here that the late Samuel Merner learned his trade. Jacob Brill was the first cooper and did a thriving trade in barrels, churns, &c. The pioneer weaver was John Oehm who made cloth for his numerous patrons on his hand loom. Theobald Seyler owned a frame hotel on the site of the present Queen's and John Boeckner did the cobbling and shoemaking for the neighborhood. The latter's shop was on the site of the present residence of Mr. D. Becker. Wendel Schuyler was the first teacher in 1838 or 1839. A portion of the first log schoolhouse still stands near the Cemetery and is used for a dwelling: Soloman Weaver was a miller in the early days and later became an evangelical minister. Business men who came a little later were Wm. Burkhold, who established a brickyard; Fred Merner who started a carriage business and Wm. Hunter, who had a general stare. In the early 50's Sylvester Frank built a brewery. It was of brick and a portion of it is still in use in connection with the present brewery. The village has gradually increased in population and assessment with no particularly stirring events to mark its even progress. The great flood of 1883 due to a cloudburst is an event never to be forgotten by those who witnessed it. On that occasion the water covered the streets up to the door of the Imperial hotel, and swept away the Rau, Hartman and Helmer bridges, thus cutting the village off from the outside world. In this its golden jubilee year, New Hamburg stands a community of contented, busy people, living in good homes and doing admirably their little share of the great world's work.2a

Weber, Urias K. (1879-1971)

Urias K. Weber (1879-1971), the son of Menno S. and Sarah (Knipe) Weber, married Magdalena Shoemaker. In 1907 he was chosen a minister by lot in the First Mennonite Church at Berlin (Kitchener), ON. The lot had earlier fallen on his father, who had refused to accept the call. Urias Weber's only formal pastoral education consisted of less than a year of study at Moody Bible Institute (1910). At First Mennonite Church he preached in the English services only.

In 1924 a controversy arose over whether members must wear uniform "plain dress " while working in factories and offices. After Weber admitted to communion some who did not wear the prescribed garb (an action taken contrary to instructions from Ontario bishops), he was silenced until the next session of conference. Approximately half of the congregation chose to form a new, unaffiliated congregation and asked Weber to be the minister. He served as pastor of the Stirling Avenue Mennonite Church , 1924-42, and as pastor emeritus from 1942 until his death.2a

27824 Webco Sports owner loved his customers

Bill Weber of Kitchener

When family members still refer to a loved one as Billy, well into his 80s, he must have been a pretty terrific fellow: fun, happy and with a childlike enthusiasm for life.

That was Bill Weber, retired owner of Webco Sports and a man who truly enjoyed himself, whether it was relaxing at the cottage with his second wife Pat Tummon, playing drums in a jazz band or dropping by the store for a gab session with customers and his daughter Cindy Weber, who took over the landmark Kitchener business 22 years ago.....

Bill and his sister Bonnie were born in Detroit where their parents lived while their father, Mel, worked for an automotive parts manufacturer. Adventurous Mel had left his hometown of Kitchener in 1924 to join the U.S. air force in California as an engine mechanic and parachute rigger. After two years, he hitchhiked back to Kitchener to marry high school sweetheart Sadie Dubrick. Together the couple returned to the U.S., where Mel got a job in Detroit and where they had the first two of their four children. The family returned to Kitchener in 1932.....

A musician to the end, Bill had played with his band at a retirement home on New Year's Eve, then left immediately afterward with Pat for an eight-day family vacation in Florida. It was when the couple had returned to their Kitchener condo and put the key in the door that Bill collapsed. He died soon afterward in hospital from an aortic aneurysm.1a

1aSixteenth Annual Report of the Waterloo Historical Society, 1928, A Historical Sketch of the Town of Waterloo, Ontario, Clayton W. Wells, L.D.S., D. D. S.

___________________________


A gloom was cast over the Town on Monday noon when the news spread that Mathias Wegenast for many years one of our most prominent manufacturers and most highly esteemed citizens had joined the silent majority. The subject of this sketch was born on June 27th, 1828 in Holtzhaussen, Wuertemburg, Germany, so that on the date of his death he attained the ripe old age of 70 years, 8 months and 6 days. At the age of four his parents emigrated to America, living for several years in Boston, Mass. Later they removed to the Niagara (Ont.) district, living for some years in a small village known as Black Creek near Niagara Falls, where his father engaged in farming. The tales of hardship endured by those early settlers were frequent subjects of narration of which the deceased had a vivid recollection. In 1841 his parents removed to the T'p of Wilmot Co. Waterloo, then a dense wilderness, where they hewed out for themselves a home, as did some others who took up land on or about the same time in the vicinity of Petersburg. In 1847 at the age of nineteen, the deceased was apprenticed to the late John Hoffman, of Berlin, then engaged in the manufacture of furniture, sash, doors, etc, where he learned his trade, as cabinet maker, joiner, etc. The writer recalls may incidents related by the deceased of the years spent in the employment of Mr. Hoffman, among his associates and fellow apprentices being a number who were destined in later years to distinguish themselves in manufacturing circles. After a few years subsequent to his being a "journeyman," he launched out on his own account as a manufacturer of sash, doors, etc, in Berlin, in a small way, but being ambitious, he looked forward to more extensive operations, and accordingly he entered into partnership with John S. Hoffman of Berlin, who together built for themselves a factory in Waterloo upon the site now occupied by Schaefer, Killer & Co, where, however, after a brief experience they were burnt out. Nothing daunted the enterprise of the deceased and he resumed business on his own account in a building situated on the vacant lot near the present skating rink, where after only a few years of successful operation he was burnt out for the second time. This fire is in the remembrance of the writer, who recalls the only method then known of fighting fire, namely, pails of water, passed from hand to hand from the creek nearby. Needless to say the fire could not be checked in this way and the loss was total, nothing being saved. By means of the insurance he carried he was enabled to commence business again in a small way, upon the old site on King street, where he erected a factory to which he added from time to time as he prospered. Here he succeeded in building up a large trade, chiefly in the lumber and sawmilling lines but he was destined once more to be a victim of the ravages of a fire, this time to an extent more serious than had fallen to his lot previously. During the winter months of 1875-76, he laid up an unusually large stock of his manufactures and when the fire occurred, (in May 1876) his factory was filled with the stock he had prepared for the business of the coming season, and the loss was correspondingly great. Although in this instance he carried a fairly large amount of insurance, the loss was heavy. Together with the former fires, it is safe to say that his total losses at the three different times mentioned were equal to a handsome competence. This time his courage was about exhausted, and only for the assistance afforded by the town in rebuilding the factory he would no doubt have been compelled to retire from business altogether. At this time he associated with himself the late Isaac Hoffmann and Adam Klippert, who together built the factory now operated by Schaefer, Killer & Co., where he remained in business until within a few years ago. There are few men with so varied and with unfortunate experience in business as the deceased passed through, and few indeed who lived to reap so small a reward for years of patient hard work against the misfortunes ever recurring. As an employer he was kind and considerate and enjoyed the esteem of his employees many of whom worked for him continuously for upwards of thirty years. During so active a life, the demands upon his time were such as to prevent his taking any part in municipal affairs. For a time he was a member of the School Board, and for one year we believe, he was a member of the Town Council, but he never aspired for any positions. In politics he was a life-long Liberal, but as in municipal matters he found no time to devote to anything but his own immediate affairs. For the past three years he has enjoyed a well earned rest living as he had for over thirty years, in the homestead on King street well known to the readers of the Chronicle. In July last, he had the misfortune of falling from a ladder while picking cherries, when he sustained severe injuries. When nearly recovered from this mishap, he met with a second and almost fatal accident, having been run into by a bicycle while crossing the road near the Post Office. From the effects of this he never recovered, having been injured internally. While able to move about during the past few months he complained of constant pain which increased as time went on until about 10 days ago, his physician advised that nothing short of an operation would afford relief or save his life. For this purpose he was removed to the Berlin and Waterloo Hospital on Saturday Feb 25th where he was successfully operated on by Dr. Howitt of Guelph, on March 1st. While relieved of the intense suffering by the operation his weakened condition could not withstand the strain under which he sank gradually, death relieving him on Monday morning, March 6th. In 1850 he married Salome Staebler who with five children survive him. George, Manager of the Ontario Mutual Life Ass'ce Co, Waterloo; Isaac, Traveller for the Vokes [?] Hardware Co., Toronto; William, in the J. B. Snider Co, Waterloo; Carrie, at home; Mary, wife of James A. Miller, Lancaster, Pa. Two children pre deceased him, Catharine, wife of Levi Graybill, who died on March 5th, 1889; and Samuel, who died on December 6th, 1886. Early in life he joined the Evangelical Association through the labors of the late Rev Wm Schmidt the pioneer missionary of the above religious body. His remains will be interred today (Thursday) in Mount Hope Cemetery.2a

Lefty and Gertrude Weichel to mark 50th jubilee
By Record Staff Writer

Elmira - One of the area's colorful personalities, H. L. (Lefty) Weichel, and his wife, Gertrude, will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary Sunday with a reception for 75 close relatives from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Galaxy Inn here. The couple were married June 29, 1921, at the little farm house of the bride's parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. S. L. Schedewitz, in the Village of Yatton, four miles west of here. They left on a honeymoon in a Baby Grand Chevrolet roadster for London, Ont., Hamilton and Niagara Falls, but between Baden and New Hamburg they were caught in a thunder storm. By the time they got the top up on the car they were drenched. Then a tire went flat and they sought refuge in a farmer's shed to change it. "I told my bride, with such a poor start, things are bound to get better," Mr. Weichel said. The couple lived in Yatton for four years and then moved to Elmira where they have remained. Mr. Weichel began his business career as a salesman for Robin Hood Flour Mills of Calgary, and later spent 10 years in sales with Hall-Zrd Foundry Co. of Hespeler and Gilson Co. of Guelph. Mr. Weichel purchased a shoe store in Elmira's business section from Martin Shoemaker and operated it for 17 years. After the death of his uncle, Henry (Big Mike) Weichel, in 1943 he sold the shoe store and went into the hardware business with M. Weichel and Son Ltd. He is president and treasurer of the firm and at 75 the oldest active merchant in Elmira. The Weichels have been life-long members of St. Paul's Lutheran Church here. Mr. Weichel was a member of the board of finance for 15 years as well as serving as treasurer of the congregation. For 14 years he was a member of the board of governors of the Lutheran Laymen's League and treasurer of the Lutheran Hour radio program for which he collected donations and looked after 35 stations in Ontario and Eastern Canada. Mr. Weichel was a member of Elmira town council for 21 years, reeve for six years, mayor for 3 ½ years and warden of Waterloo County in 1954. In 1955-56 he was president of the Ontario Motor League's North Waterloo Automobile Club, and in 1963 was president of the Ontario Good Roads Association. He also served as president for two years of the Canadian Arthritis Society's Elmira zone. Since 1950 he has been Elmira justice of the peace. Currently he is a member of the board of governors of the Waterloo County Hall of Fame. Lefty Weichel's name became widely known when he was chairman of the Happy Cousins Concert Company which in 25 years entertained at 1,200 dinners, socials and garden parties across Ontario and centres in the United States.

27862 Mr. John S. Weichel, is one of the most energetic and enterprising business men of Elmira. He is partner and general manager of the constantly growing hardware business of M. Weichel & Son, Elmira and Waterloo. He attends strictly and promptly to business matters and may always be depended upon to do his part towards the welfare of the town. He has been a member of the Municipal Council, and is president of the Elmira Board of Trade.

Mr. Michael Weichel, has been a resident of Elmira since 1862. He came from Germany when 12 years of age. When 20 years of age he learned blacksmithing in Elmira. In 1868 he commenced a shop on his own account which he continued 12 years. In 1881 he bought the hardware business of Mr. Wachsmuth. He is a public spirited citizen and has done much towards the advancement of Elmira. He was the second Reeve of the Village of Elmira.

The Hardware Business of M. Weichel & Son has assumed large proportions. From a small beginning, it has grown to one of the largest enterprises of its kind in the County of Waterloo, comprising as it does, two large stores with immense stocks. From the beginning the firm has made it a practice to endeavor to please their customers and to supply them with anything they might want in hardware or kindred goods. They have constantly added new lines and are now handling apart from the ordinary class of hardware, coal, wood, binder twine, cement and other bulky goods. They have also a stove and tinware department in which they carry a heavy stock of stoves and furnaces of which they make a specialty. The tinsmithing department is under the management of a first-class experienced mechanic. In 1896 the firm started a store in Waterloo, on the same broad principles, which were responsible for their success in Elmira, with the result that they have now a very large and popular trade there.

Mr. Wm. G. Weichel is manager of the Waterloo store. Under his management the business, which comprises practically similar lines of goods as are kept in Elmira, is constantly increasing and gaining in favor. The large quantities of goods required by the firm, enables them to place their orders on the most advantageous terms.1a

_________________________

John S. Weichel, one of Elmira's prominent and well-known citizens, died early on Tuesday morning at the home of his son, Charles J. Weichel, Park St. Mr. Weichel had observed his 81st birthday on May 10, and had been in failing health for a short time. As one of the leading and oldest business men in this community, and a staunch and active member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, his passing will be keenly felt by all who knew him.

He was born in 1866 near Heidelberg, a son of the late Michael and Margaret Weichel, who moved to Elmira when he was about three months old. He received his education in this town, and after leaving school was employed as a bank clerk here. Later he became a partner in his father's hardware business, remaining with it for about 65 years. He retired from active work n the local store in December, 1945, and as president of the M. Weichel & Son Co. in April 1946.

His interests in activities in the town have covered a wide varied field, in business, and social and church life. Mr. Weichel was one of the leading promoters of the Great West Felt Company Limited, and remained a director until only a few years ago. He also played an active part in municipal affairs as a young man, and was a member of the town council in the years when the first sidewalks were built, and the waterworks were established. He was a former member and one time president of the Board of Trade.

Music was one of his favorite interests and he had been a loyal member of the Elmira Musical Society for more than fifty years, and played with the band for a long time. For twenty years the choir of the church to which he belonged benefited by the faithful and capable leadership of Mr. Weichel.

For the past twenty years, since the death of his wife, formerly Ida Ruppel, he had resided at the home of his son, Charles. He was popular with young and old, and an interesting talker, and enjoyed the visits made by his numerous friends, particularly during the past two years when he was unable to be out very much.

He leaves to mourn their loss, four sons, Charles, Oscar, Hilbert and Harry, and one daughter, Mrs. Fred (Marie) Forwell; all of Elmira: one brother William, Waterloo; two sisters, Mrs. Oscar (Clara) Ruppel and Mrs. Edith Heimbecker, both of Elmira; 11 grandchildren and three great grandchildren. One brother, Henry, died four years ago.

The body will rest at the Dreisinger Funeral Home until this Thursday afternoon at 2:30, when a brief service will be held there, followed by services at St. Paul's Lutheran church at 3 o'clock conducted by Rev. F. P. Malinsky. Interment will be made in Elmira Cemetery.1a

M. Weichel and Son Ltd., Hardware, Celebrates 75th Year of Business

A special sale marks the 75th anniversary of Elmira's oldest hardware store, M. Weichel and Son Ltd., this week. The store was founded in 1879 by Michael Weichel in a store leased from William Wachsmuth, on the site where the Dreisinger furniture store now stands. At that time two clerks were employed in the store, Mr. Weichel's 13 year-old son John and another man. In December 1885 the Weichels moved their stock, valued at $4000 into a store which stood on part of the ground now occupied by the E. S. Otto building. Mr. Weichel carried on business here for a year, meanwhile working on the building which was to become his permanent store.

When the Weichels had been in business in the permanent store for more than sixteen years fire destroyed the frame warehouse in back. 50 pounds of gunpowder were stored in the warehouse and the fire caused this to explode. This explosion brought the warehouse roof down on the fire and extinguished it. In those years the barter system was often used in dealings with farmers. Merchandise was exchanged for eggs and other foods. Sometimes as many as 200 dozen eggs were piled in the back of the store. Eggs brought ten cents a dozen then. In 1899 the Weichels bought the hardware store and stock of J. W. Fear, King street, south, Waterloo. At that time the company was formed with directors and shareholders. Mr. Weichel's brother, William G. Weichel, was the first manager of the Waterloo store. This store was sold in March, 1952 to William Schaefer, who had been its manager for 18 years.

For 35 years after the opening of the Elmira store coal and wood were sold there. This line of business was discontinued about the beginning of the first world war. At that time the price of coal was $6 a ton and wood sold at $5 a cord. Present management of the store is Oscar Ruppel, president; Harold Weichel, vice-president; H. (Lefty) Weichel, secretary-treasurer; Harold Ruppel, director. The store's shareholders are Mrs. Oscar Ruppel, Mr. H. O. Weichel, and Mrs. Ida Heimbecker. The five members of the store's staff are Philip Steenson, Louella Klinck, Wayne Pettie, Omer Bauman and Lawrence Frey.2a

27864 Ex-Postmaster
O. W. Weichel, Former MP, Dies

O. W. (Mike) Weichel, former Waterloo North MP, died Friday at St. Mary's Hospital after an illness of three weeks. He was 74. Postmaster in Elmira for 35 years, Mr. Weichel resigned in 1958 to run as a Conservative candidate in the federal election of that year. He completed three terms before retiring in 1965. His election with a majority of 9,342 ended a Liberal reign in Waterloo North which extended back some 41 years. He was the first Conservative to serve the constituency since his uncle, the late W. G. Weichel, defeated Mackenzie King here in 1911. Mr. Weichel spearheaded the drive in the House of Commons which brought Canada its first national fitness plan. He was slated for a parliamentary secretaryship when the Diefenbaker government fell. Born in Elmira, he was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Weichel. He was educated in Elmira, schools and after the First World War at Shaw's Business College in Toronto. He was employed at his father's hardware firm, M. Weichel and Son, Elmira before enlisting at the age of 22 and going overseas in the First World War with the 118th Battalion. He won the Distinguished Conduct Medal for bravery in the field and lost a leg in action two months before the end of the war. He was later awarded the Queen's Coronation Medal for civilian service and the Medal of Merit by the Canadian legion. The loss of his leg ended what might have been a long sports career. Two weeks before he was wounded, he signed a professional baseball contract to play in the Michigan - Ontario League, and he had been promised a tryout with the team which later became the Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL [National Hockey League]. He had played senior hockey with the Ontario Hockey Association before the war and was active in soccer, tennis and track and field, carrying off the 100-yard championship for his regiment. With his sports career at an end, he turned his sports interest to executive work. He was active in the OHA [Ontario Hockey Association] as a coach, manager or executive for more than 30 years. He served on the Ontario Minor Hockey Association executive for nearly 20 years, including two years as president, and was still an honorary executive member of the Toronto Hockey League. In the 1930s and 1940s he coached and managed Elmira hockey and baseball teams and was a past president of the Elmira Badminton Club. Several years ago he was honored by the Ontario Sports Writers Association which made him a guest of honor along with such sports personalities as Floyd Patterson, Tiny Thompson and Don Larsen at the Association's annual Sports Celebrities Dinner in Toronto. Mr. Weichel never lost his keen interest in baseball and hockey. He was looking forward to another trip to Florida, this month to watch the Boston Red Sox training sessions.

Gained 150 Prizes
A past president of the Ontario Lawn Bowlers Association, he collected some 150 prizes in this sport. Active in veterans and miliary organizations, Mr. Weichel had been a member and trustee of Kitchener branch of the Royal Canadian Legion for nearly 30 years. He was also a member of the Waterloo, Polish and Elmira legion branches, the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans Association, the officers' and Sergeants' Messes of Victoria Street Armory, K-W Naval Veterans Association, and Wing 404, RCAF [Royal Canadian Air Force] Association. He was a past president of Elmira Community Service Club, former group chairman of the Elmira boy scouts for 15 years and a recruiting officer during the Second World War. At one time in the war he served on the executive of 23 organizations. Besides heading war bond and savings stamp drives, he helped promote and build Elmira's present arena. Next to sports, in which his connections are too numerous to fully catalogue, his favorite hobby was music. One of the finest tenors in this part of the country, he formed a concert troupe, the Happy Cousins, which played more than 1,200 concerts in Canada and the United States before an estimated 300,000 people. He taught singing for nearly 15 years in Elmira and at one time had his own orchestra. In 1928 he won a gold medal for Ontario tenors. He had been a bass drummer in Elmira and military bands, and also played the violin. Chairman of Elmira centennial activities, he was also a member of the board of governors of Waterloo County Hall of Fame, a life member of Waterloo County Historical Society, the K-W Big Brothers Association, the Retired Businessmen's Association and former president of Elmira Polar Kings, who won the OHA intermediate B championship. Since his retirement, he spearheaded a $30,000 fund-raising campaign for the Waterloo County Children's Aid Society. A Lutheran, he attended St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Elmira and was an elder of the church.

Married in 1923
His wife, the former Olive Hughes of Toronto, predeceased him in 1966. They were married in Toronto in 1923. Surviving are two sons, A. Ross, city editor of The Record, and Earle H. of Oakville, former Kitchener alderman and manager of corporate public relations for the Ford Motor Co., of Canada, two brothers, Charles of Southampton and H. L. (Lefty) of Elmira; one sister, Mrs. F. C. Forwell, Elmira, and four grandchildren. One brother, Harry, predeceased him.

27868 SISTER FLORENCE WEICKER

1st Lutheran Deaconess dies at 69

Sister Florence Weicker, deaconess at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in Kitchener for 28 years, died of cancer today at Freeport Hospital, Kitchener. She was 69. When she retired on Nov. 9, 1975 it was said that she had comforted the bereaved, been a companion to the elderly, a guide to New Canadians and a mother confessor to nearly every member of the congregation which she joined as a 13-year old. She was the first Lutheran deaconess in Canada. There are about six women serving in Canadian churches.

After public school here, she attended business college and worked as a stenographer for six years. It was during this period that her desire to become a deaconess intensified and as a first step she entered the Stratford Hospital school of nursing, graduating in 1932. It was during the Depression and in Kitchener, the economic nightmare was haunting her family which was surviving on a bakery business operated from the back of bicycles.

She returned from Stratford to work at the Freeport Hospital for 1 ½ years and as an industrial nurse at Merchant's Rubber (now Uniroyal) for eight years. In 1944, she started on the path that would make her a deaconess. She enrolled at Waterloo College for one year and in 1945 worked among children at the Lutheran Settlement House in Philadelphia. She then began two years of intensive training at the Lutheran Deaconess House and School in Baltimore, Md. She returned to her home congregation of St. Matthew's in 1947 and for the next 10 years, she worked with refugees from Europe.

She helped to start an interim house used by many refugees as a stepping stone into the community. But she still found time to make hospital visits, work with youth groups, assist in Sunday school and to visit shut-ins. Toward the end of her career, Sister Florence was averaging 150 to 225 visits a month to nursing home patients and shut-ins in the Twin Cities, Bridgeport, Tavistock, Preston and Maryhill. Each visit lasted anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.

One of her favourite projects was called Loaves and Fishes, providing hot meals three times a week for senior citizens and pensioners in the K-W area at a nominal cost. She was a founding member of the Community Workers Council and was also a past chairman of the K-W Council of Churches, which named her layman of the year in 1972. Sister Florence was a past member president of the K-W Quota Club, a member of the board of St. Monica House, a charter member of the Sunnyside Auxiliary, and the St. Leonard's Society.

Surviving are one brother and one sister. She was predeceased by three brothers. The service will be conducted at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church at 1 p.m. Saturday.1a

Was Member of Local Family Who Took High Place in Country


A distinguished son of Elmira passed away in Oakville on April first in the person of Mr. William B. Weidenhammer, known in later years as Mr. Wyndham, he having found it necessary to change his name during the war, owing to his position as principal of Oakville High School. Death was sudden, pleuro-pneumonia, following a successful operation for cancer of the stomach. The late Mr. Wyndham was born near Elmira, and was one of a large family that grew up on the farm there. After University graduation he took up the teaching profession. He was a teacher at the K & W Collegiate from September 1901 until June 1902 when he moved to Wardsville and from there to Oakville to assume the principal ship of the collegiate there, a position he held up to the time of his death.

He was a specialist in modern languages, upon which he was a considerable authority. He was fifty-two years of age. The late Dr. Weidenhammer was a twin brother. Though the immediate relatives of the late Mr. Wyndham are scattered, they are still well remembered here, and there are a number of kindred in the district. A sister, Mrs. Schierhottz lives in Kitchener, and there are two brothers Jacob Weidenhammer of Waterloo, and Andrew Willows of Winnipeg. His widow, four sons and one daughter are also left.1a

He had been at the insane asylum about six months but had been brought home some time ago having seemingly recovered. Lately, however, he had shown signs of the old trouble coming on again and the family kept a pretty close watch of him generally. But he found an opportunity to carry out his purpose when his son left him for a short time to do some chores. While in his sound mind Mr. Weiler was a kind father and an obliging neighbor.

27909 The hearts of Oberlin and Decatur county people were saddened last Tuesday when the news of the death of Probate Judge Weir Flashed over the wire from Topeka. While his condition for some time has been most critical the news did not come as a surprise. Judge Weir was comparatively, a young man. He seemed strong and in the vigor of life and manhood until a few weeks ago he was taken with a pain in the head. It was on of the unusual occurrences in life and he was taken to Topeka that specialists might investigate and, if possible, give some relief. Little, if any, encouragement was give from the start. Relief could only come through an operation which relieved a pressure of puss from the brain, but no assurance could follow of a permanent relief and recovery. After the operation the Judge hovered from day to day between life and death finally the Angel of Death claimed him. The untimely and sudden death of Judge Weir cast a sorrow over many hearts. He was man that people learned to love, he was honest and upright almost to a fault. As Probate Judge he gave the best of satisfaction, because of determination to be right in all matters. While the family has lost a loving husband and a faithful father the public has lost a most efficient and conscientious officer. The sympathy of the entire people goes out to the members of the grief stricken family and while we can do nothing to lessen the sorrow, we can point to the blessed promise that in the future we may reunite with our loved ones and that there will be no more sorrow, pain or death, neither parting. We can not, bring loved ones back, but we can go to them in time.

W. J. Weir

Estherville suffered the loss of one of its most highly respected pioneer citizens when William J. Weir passed to the Great Beyond early Monday morning. Mr. Weir came to this county in 1868 and has made his home in this city and community continuously during the fifty-six years since that time.

Although he had not been robust for several years, yet his rapid decline in health did not begin until six months ago when the doctors' diagnosis showed that he was suffering from cancer of the stomach.

Mr. Weir was a kind and considerate husband and father and during his last illness he was carefully cared for by his wife and children and everything was done to relieve his suffering.

At the time of his death Mr. Weir was nearly sixty-eight years of age having been born in Ayr, Ontario, Canada, on April 6, 1856, and came to Armstrong with his parents when twelve years of age. In October 1878 he came to Estherville. He was married in 1879 to Eliza Shaad to which union were born two children, Byron W. Weir of Estherville and Mrs. George Luikhart of Hinkley, Minn.

On June 11, 1890, he was married to Ora A. Dodds at Louisville, Ky. Four children were born to them, Annie, Eleanor, John and David. All of the children and his loving wife survive him.

Mr. Weir was the oldest of nine children of David and Christina Weir. Five of these children are still living, a sister and two brothers having passed away some years ago. The brothers are Matthew, of Alberta, Canada; James D., of Estherville; George, of Dunnell, Minn.; Henry H. of Windom, Minn.; and Rev. Valentine A. of Estacade, Oregon, and by many other relatives in the vicinity of Estherville and Armstrong.

Funeral services are being held this Wednesday afternoon at two thirty from the Presbyterian church.

The hardships encountered by the early pioneers of the county of which sturdy band William J. Weir was a member can never be realized by those who have not endured a similar experience. The debt which we who have followed and now enjoy the comparative comforts which such as they have provided for us owe them a debt that can only be repaid by a reverent esteem for the memory of their lives and deeds.

In the mid-1940s, Sadowsky said, he started work at Hamel Broom, then located at 16 Noecker St., beside the Hamel family home. The plant was later demolished by the City of Waterloo so Regina Street could be extended north.

At that point, Sadowsky, now the owner, moved Hamel Broom to the Laurel Industries building. One of his employees, John Davenport, bought the firm in 1989 and moved it to St. Jacobs, where it continues to operate today.

A fellow tenant, Sadowsky recalls, was an elderly electrician named Percy Weissgerber, who sporadically found work repairing light fixtures and electric motors.1a

27929 Wilfrid L. Welker Answers Last Call
Passed From Life on Monday at St. Jacobs

Residents of Elmira, St. Jacobs and district will be distressed to learn that Wilfrid Lloyd Welker died at his father's home in St. Jacobs, on Monday, April 25th, inst. He was a capable and popular young man. He was a son of Mr. F. E. Welker of St. Jacobs and was born in Wallace Township. When he was seven years of age his father purchased a mercantile business and moved to St. Jacobs. Wilfrid attended the public school there and completed his education at the K-W Collegiate Institute. Afterward he entered the employ of a bank and remained with it until 1915, when he enlisted with the 200th Toronto Battalion for service overseas. He served three years, of which one and a half years were at the front in France. He was once wounded but remained with the C.E.F. until the armistice was signed. Before joining the army he had contracted a leakage of the heart from which he never recovered. Returning to Canada, he obtained a position in the Merchants Rubber Co.'s office at Kitchener. Later he was transferred to the stores department of the Elmira Rubber Co. Here he remained until May of 1920. He then returned to St. Jacobs to take a position in his father's store. About New Year's his heart began again to give him trouble, and and he became seriously ill. Five weeks ago he was conveyed to the K.-W. Hospital, where he remained two weeks. He was brought home three weeks ago and gradually became weaker, until death ended his sufferings on Monday. He was aged 22 years, 9 months and 22 days. His father, his stepmother and two stepbrothers, aged 7 and 5 respectively, survive and mourn his untimely death. Wilfrid was a lover of outdoor and indoor sports and played hockey for a considerable time with the Elmira club. He was deservedly popular among his chums and all who knew him. His funeral was held this (Thursday) afternoon, at 2 o'clock, from the family residence at St. Jacobs to Calvary Evangelical Church for service, with burial following at the Evangelical Cemetery. The early death of this estimable young man has called forth many sincere expressions of regret and sympathy for his bereaved father and family.1a

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 instructo
