After he severed his connection with the Massey-Harris Company, about 1908, Mr. Tilt conducted a cattle business on a more extensive scale, until a few years ago when he retired.

Tilt having been clerkof the Township for 35 years. Prominent in Municipal Affairs in 1918. Mr. Tilt removed his residence to Preston, living in the large stone house now the Memorial Home. Several years ago he moved to his late residence, Dover and William Streets. Since coining to Preston. Mr. Tilt has been prominent in municipal affairs.

Another occupational wanderer was Frank Dillon Tims, who, at the time his biography was written, had become the Deputy Provincial Auditor in Quebec. But he did not achieve this status until more than 20 years after he first set out for the California gold fields for three years of mining. He returned to Canada in 1852 and "was principally engaged in mercantile pursuits down to 1857, when he went to Illinois, entered the lumber business for some time, and while there, in 1859, he was licensed to practice as an attorney and counsellor-at-law in that state." Two years later, he returned to Canada and again entered a lumber business owned by Senator James Skead. a connection that may have served him well in obtaining an appointment to the Treasury Department in 1868. From there he moved to the position of Deputy Provincial Auditor in 1870. The end result of such sidetracks was what recommended a person for representative status, and the networking along the way was no small matter.2a

_______________________________

Tims, Frank Dillon, Deputy Provincial Auditor of the Province of Quebec, is a prominent figure in official life at Quebec, and few members of the Civil Service enjoy a larger share of the public respect. He is the youngest son of the late William and Catherine Dillon Tims,and was born in Oldcastle, county Meath, Ireland, on 26th December, 1829. The family came to Canada in 1834, and settled in the city of Quebec, where Mr. Tims, sr., died in 1836 and his widow in 1862. An elder brother of the subject of this sketch, Thomas D. Tims, now occupies the important position of Financial Inspector of the Dominion of Canada, at Ottawa, and their sister, the Reverend Mother St. Catherine, who entered the Monastery of the Ursulines at Quebec many years ago, is still living, after having occupied for two consecutive terms, the longest period permitted by the regulations, the high position of Lady Superior. Our subject was educated at the Seminary of Quebec and the Quebec High School, and subsequently studied law with Charles Alleyn, Q.C., subsequently Provincial Secretary of Canada, and now sheriff of Quebec. Seized with the " gold fever " in 1849, he gave up the study of the law, and on the 12th November, 1849, sailed on the barque Rory 0'Moore, the first vessel leaving Canada bound for California, by the way of Cape Horn, finally reaching San Francisco after a five and a half months' voyage. He remained in California, engaged principally in mining, until the fall of 1851, when he started on his homeward journey down the Pacific coast, stopping at San Juan del Sur and Lake Nicaragua for some weeks and then proceeding to Panama, where he crossed the isthmus and took steamer to New York from Chagres in January, 1852. He reached Quebec in February of the same year, and on the 23rd October following, was married at Sherbrooke, to Caroline Dudley, youngest daughter of the late Captain John Fraser, of H. M. 76th regiment, formerly town mayor of Quebec. He next removed to Upper Canada, where he was principally engaged in mercantile pursuits down to 1857, when he went to Illinois, entered the lumber business for some time, and while there in 1859, was licensed to practice as an attorney and counsellor-at-law in that state. Returning to Canada in 1861, he entered the employ of the late Hon. Jas. Skead, senator, then one of the largest lumber producers of the Ottawa district, where he remained in charge of the business until January, 1868, when he was appointed to the Audit branch of the Treasury department of the province of Quebec, and promoted to the office of Deputy Provincial Auditor in 1884, which he still holds. In religion, Mr. Tims is a Roman Catholic. In 1856, he held a commission as lieutenant and adjutant in the Waterloo (Ont.) Militia. He is a past president of the St. Patrick's Society of Quebec, and has taken a prominent interest in the progress of the Geographical Society of Quebec, of which he has been the secretary for several years. In this last capacity, he was one of the principal promoters of the government exploring expedition, which was sent out within the last few years to endeavor to solve the mystery surrounding Great Lake Mistassini, in north eastern Canada. By his marriage, he has had issue thirteen children, seven of whom are living, four sons and three daughters. Of the former, three are actually settled in the Canadian North-West, at Swift Current and Beaver Lake, near Edmonton, where they are largely engaged in commercial pursuits. One of them, F. F. Tims, had the honor to be the first to erect a building at Regina, the present capital of the province of Assiniboia. During the late rebellion this son rendered valuable public service in freighting for the troops and in provisioning the Battleford contingent and Mounted Police.3a

30037 Grim search for body at Waterloo landfill enters fourth week

Investigators remain confident they'll find key evidence - and likely the body of missing Kitchener woman Catherine Todd - as a methodical search at the regional landfill enters its fourth week.

Poor weather last week slowed the search but didn't prevent officers from continuing the grim task, said Insp. Kevin Thaler. The search continues seven days a week, 10 hours a day during daylight hours, at the 925 Erb St. W. landfill.

"There's a very strong belief that the loveseat is in the landfill, if not Catherine Todd herself," Thaler said. "We know that evidence is in the landfill."

Police believe Todd, 48, was murdered on March 18 or 19, a few days before she was reported missing. A small loveseat was also missing from Todd's Lorraine Avenue apartment.1a

30038 MARTIN MILNE TODD

1891-1963 Married: Minnie E. Clare

Martin Milne Todd was born in Galt on July 22, 1891, the son of Martin N. Todd and Joanna Gilholm. He graduated from McGill University in Montreal with a Bachelor of Science degree and lived in Preston for about sixteen years before returning to Galt in 1936. Mr. Todd succeeded his father as president of the Grand River Railway in 1918 and later also served as the company's secretary-treasurer. The railway was an electric rail line which originated as the Galt, Preston and Hespeler Street Railway founded by Mr. Todd's grandfather Thomas Todd. Martin Milne Todd was the third generation of his family to serve as president of the railway, following his grandfather and his father in that position. Mr. Todd was associated with the Mutual Life Assurance Co. for thirty-five years heading the company's Galt agency from 1929 to 1963. He was also associated with the Gore Mutual Insurance Company for twenty-one years, serving on the company's board of directors from 1942 to 1963 and acting as the company's vice-president. He also served as president and director of the Galt Malleable Iron Co., as vice-president and secretary of Clare Bros. Ltd. of Preston and as vice-president of the Lake Erie and Northern Railway.

30040 MARTIN N. TODD

Martin N. Todd was born in Galt July 27th., 1858, and died there August 29th., 1917. He was educated at the Galt public school and the old Tassie school. Leaving home, he was for some years in Hamilton, in the employ of the Great Western Railway, thus showing early prediliction for an occupation with which he was later to be prominently identified. Returning to Galt he became associated with his father, Thomas Todd, in the Galt flour mills, and later in the commission business.

Thomas Todd, in his time, one of Galt's prominent industrial men, was the principal promoter and first president of the Galt, Preston & Hespeler Railway.* On his father's death M. N. Todd became president of the company, in January 1900, and is now, in turn, succeeded by his son, M. Milne Todd, as president. Thus, since beginning of the Galt, Preston and Hespeler Railway, in 1894, the office of president has been held in the same family; now in the third generation. Under M. N. Todd's management the G. P. & H. Ry. soon began to expand its business and eventually became one of the best interurban electric railway properties in Canada. Mr. Todd was also manager of the Lake Erie & Northern Rail way; the adoption of electric traction on this line, instead of steam as had been contemplated, was due mainly to his foresight and practical judgement of traffic requirements on it. Facilities for passenger and freight traffic afforded by the Galt, Preston & Hespeler Ry. and its connection and operation with the Canadian Pacific Railway and later on with the Lake Erie & Northern Ry. gave fresh impetus to the manufacturing and general business activities of Kitchener and Waterloo, as earlier to Preston and Hespeler, a benefit due to a great extent to the energy and good management of M. N. Todd, in whom Waterloo County lost a valuable citizen.

While his time and effort were mainly devoted to his railway work, he had interest in the Galt Malleable Iron Company, the Pres ton Car and Coach Company, the 'Stamped Enameled Ware Company of Hespeler and in the Canada Malting Company. He had a farm east of Galt, where, among other things, he took particular interest in breeding horned Dorset sheep. He was connected with the Galt Horse Show from its beginning and was for years president of the Association; was charter member and first president of the Waterloo County Golf and Country Club.

Mr. Todd was member of the Galt Hospital Trust for a number of years. He was a Presbyterian and of the congregation of Central Church, Galt. He is survived by Mrs. Todd, one daughter and four sons, among the latter being Lieut. Thomas Todd, now with the British army in France. The family home, Caverhill, on North Water Street, on the main entrance to the city, is one of the hand some residence places of Galt.

The Todd Milling Company

This plant is located on Bruce Street, and is one of the largest of the kind in the Dominion. The mill was erected in 1878 by a Glasgow firm, and purchased in 1886 by the present company, which is composed of Messrs. Thos. Todd, John Scott and Martin N. Todd. Connected with the mill is an extensive cooper shop, directly opposite the mill. The barrels are sent across by an automatic contrivance as soon as completed. The whole establishment gives employment to a large number of hands. The mill is a substantial six storey structure, built of stone, and has a capacity of 400 barrels per day. It is fitted up with the most improved machinery, and their brands of flour are eagerly sought after, as is shown by the fact that a ready market is found for their large output, not only throughout the Dominion, but in competition with the world in the market of Great Britain. The gentlemen of the firm are also interested in the social side of the town's welfare, and are greeted on every hand as men of the highest commercial standing. Mr. Thos. Todd is president of the Street Railway and Mr. John Scott is one of the largest and most extensive cattle exporters in Canada.3a

On January 1, 1900, following the death of his father, Mr. Todd became president of the railway. He set about expanding the line until it became one of the best interurban electric rail systems in the country.

Todd's Milling Co
., comprising the firm of Thomas Todd & Son and John Scott, off Hawthorn Street - Among the most prominent manufacturing industries in Galt must be mentioned the Todd Milling Co., which is one of the largest concerns in this line in this section of the county. They have recently purchased the old Stockwell Mills, which had been lying idle for several years; and to meet the more modern requirements of the present day, they entirely overhauled the building, and took out all the old machinery and runs of stone, and entirely refitted it, giving the contract for the work to the celebrated flour mill builders, Messrs. Goldie & McCulloch, of this town, the interior arrangements being made after plans by the foreman, Mr. J.E. Wilson, which are complete in every particular. The building occupied is a substantially-built structure of stone, five stories in height, with basement, engine and boiler house; also a large store house for grain, fitted up with nine large hopper bins, thus being enabled to keep each grade separate. There is an automatic weigher for weighing the grain before passing into the rolls. In the basement of the mill is located the main line of shafting, with pulleys, two sets of large wheat brush machines, one Galt improved separator, one Galt improved cockle machine, one Galt improved smutter; also elevators for handling screenings and wheat. On the first floor are four runs of stones, twenty-four pairs of Galt improved rolls, three Galt improved flour packers and three weight scales. On the second floor are one improved centrifugal bolt, two middlings dusters and five purifiers; also bins for middlings and flour. The third floor contains four purifiers, four centrifugal bolts, one Galt improved middlings duster and bins. On the fourth floor are four Wilson's patent dust collectors and three four-reel bolts. On the fifth floor are two two-reel bolt chests, one single-reel chest, and the elevator tops, with dust protectors on each. The mill was fitted up under the direction of the foreman, Mr. Wilson who has several patents on the machines for the prevention of fire by friction, etc. The capacity of the mill is 350 barrels per day. The head miller is Mr. Anthony Marshall, who was lately in charge of a leading flour mill in Blenheim, Ont., and is a gentleman well qualified for the position in every respect, having had an extended experience of many years. The proprietors, Thomas Todd & Son and John Scott, are gentlemen of unquestioned business ability, push and enterprise, and are highly and justly esteemed in the community. Messrs. Todd & Son will continue to carry on their general produce and commission business, in the exportation of flour, grain and provisions, as heretofore.3a

Thomas Todd was born in Thurlstone, Ettrick, Scotland on October 14, 1831 and immigrated to Canada with his family when he was three. On the voyage from Scotland, cholera broke out aboard ship and Mr. Todd's mother died. The family landed in Montreal and moved inland to settle at Aberfoyle, Ontario.

THOMAS TODD. He was one of the first men I became acquainted with in Galt, and he was a true and trusted friend as long as he lived. I could not help loving him for all his excellent qualities, and his great kindness, and unchanging fidelity. He was always the same, a man to be relied upon. He was a man of affairs, and as I say in " Memories of the Past," whatever he undertook he carried through, and that, too, in a thoroughly unselfish manner. " He could walk steadily where others feared to tread. A business expert, and though he carried many a weighty responsibility, his cheery voice, his pleasant smile, his kind, encouraging word, were an inspiration of the best kind, and that especially to his minister. He was liberal and loving by nature, and every way a noble soul." After more than ten years since these words were penned they still stand as a fair estimate of his character. Only I feel that here some additional particulars ought to be added by way of illustration or amplification of what is here set down. We were associated not only in church work, but in the Trusteeship of the Galt Collegiate Institute, and I saw him in his daily engagements as one of our leading business men, and also in the privacies of his home life, so that I saw him all round, and knew him intimately. I therefore feel free to record my impressions of him. Business men by business men are seen only on one side of their character, the observant minister usually has opportunity of seeing them on many sides, because he has to do with them in more ways than one. He was exceedingly generous in his nature. I know that in my own experience. And one of his employees, whom I met years after he had left his service, spoke of his kindness to the poor in the most laudatory terms, finishing with: " No one knows how much good he does in a quiet way. I tell you, Mr. Todd is a genuinely good man." This individual had been his confidential clerk. I always think with comfort and delight of Mr. Todd in his relation to me and my work. He was, in his department of service, a true yokefellow, doing all in his power to further the cause that was dear to his heart the cause of Christ. He was a born leader of men and whatever he took in hand he accomplished. He carried things through to a successful issue. The chief joy of his life was in the church, its services, and its success. He was always in his place on the Lord's Day if at home and well. And he was liberal in support of all the schemes which the church was carrying on. It was to him a real delight to have a hand in furthering some good object. In his public career he was found foremost in great enterprises, inspiring others with confidence and hope, and carrying them forward into works of value to the entire community. Everything of value to the people found in Mr. Todd an earnest advocate and a zealous supporter. He was a thoroughly unselfish man, and when, in the providence of God, he was called home, many mourned his loss who acknowledged him their best earthly friend. Not only did his family suffer a great loss, but the church he loved and labored for, and he community whose interests he sought to advance, both mourned and missed him much.6a

Mr. Scott purchased the business in 1873 and operated it for many years as R. Scott and Son Ltd., later the Victoria Wheel Works. The buildings were damaged by fire in 1882 but were rebuilt and enlarged. Mr. Scott continued to manage the business until 1906 when he sold it to his son-in-law George A. Dobbie. The business was located at the foot of Main St. for many years before moving to new facilities on Middleton St. in 1913. Thomas Todd
 
30045 Kitchener soldier killed in Afghanistan

KANDAHAR, AFGHANISTAN \endash Tyler William Todd, a 26-year-old soldier from Kitchener based in Edmonton, has been killed in a powerful roadside bomb blast while on foot patrol in a volatile community southwest of Kandahar City. The attack that killed Pte. Tyler William Todd, 26, happened early Sunday near the community of Belanday, about eight kilometres outside of the provincial capital.

Brig.-Gen. Dan Menard, the commander of Canadian troops in Afghanistan, says Todd was on a routine patrol to learn more about the people of the village and their needs when the bombing happened. "His enthusiasm and strong will were inspirational to his platoon," Menard said in a prepared statement. "He was doing what he loved to do \emdash being a soldier operating alongside friends."

It is unclear if any other soldiers were wounded in the attack. The Canadian military no longer releases information on battlefield injuries.
Todd would have been only weeks away from completing a six month tour. His death comes as the U.S. pours thousands of reinforcements into Kandahar province and NATO continues planning for a spring offensive. The Belanday area is a known transit route for Taliban fighters, who use the arid grape and wheat fields as staging areas for attacks into the city itself. It has also become an increasingly troublesome region.

The explosion on Sunday happened in Dand district, the same region where journalist Michelle Lang and four Canadian soldiers were killed on Dec. 30, 2009. It was also just east of where a roadside bomb in the town of Nakhoney claimed the life of 44-year-old Sgt. John Faught in January. Canadian and Afghan troops fought their way through Nakhoney and the surrounding area in a major operation last November. Just the mention of the town causes seasoned soldiers with the battle group to wince.

Last month, the Canadian battle group supported an Afghan National Army sweep of villages further southwest of Belanday in neighbouring Panjwaii district. The three-day operation netted only two prisoners and no weapons caches. Villagers claimed they had chased the Taliban out of the area. NATO commanders said following Operation Sher (Lion) II that they were confident most of the approaches to the city were secure. They were ready to focus their attention on far-flung western parts of the volatile district, where Canadian soldiers have fought repeated engagements with the Taliban.

Menard took no questions from reporters about the incident, but instead praised Todd as a person. "Tyler was a practical joker; he would often hide rocks and candies in the other soldier's bed spaces," he said. "He never allowed the small things to get to him and was often the rock that other soldiers could depend on." Todd was from Kitchener, Ont., but based in Edmonton with the 1st Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry.

His death brings to 142 the number of Canadian soldiers killed since the Afghan mission began. The last solder to pass away, Cpl. Darren Fitzpatrick, was mortally wounded March 6, but died in an Edmonton hospital two weeks later. Meanwhile, also on Sunday, four Afghan civilians were killed and 16 others wounded during a mine clearing operation in Kandahar's Dand district.

Afghan Police are investigating and suggested that insurgents may have been responsible because there were two explosions. The first blast left dead and wounded at the site and a second explosion occurred when a rescue team arrived, a tactic often used by insurgents.1a

________________________________


The church at Markham mourns. A dear sister is gone from our midst. Sister Mary Wismer, wife of Deacon David Wismer, died sudddenly at her home on Monday evening, July 16, 1883. She had been about her household duties during the day, apparently in her usual health, and in the evening retired to rest at the usual hour. Shortly after, however, she aroused her husband, who called in their son and daughter-in-law living in another part of the house, just in time to hear her say goodbye, and then behold her peacefully close her eyes in death. Sister Wismer was one of the oldest members of the Markham Church. She was born in Bucks County , Pennsylvania, August 13, 1810; consequently at the time of her death was nearly 73 years of age. Her maiden name was Mary Toman. When about 14 years old she, with her parents and others, came to Canada, driving all the way with a train of sixteen wagons and teams, carrying their provisions, and sleeping in their wagons at night. She first came to Waterloo, thence in a few months to Markham, where she continued to reside until the time of her death. In the year 1826 she was married to David Wismer, with whom she lived a peaceful and happy life. Of their fourteen children (six sons and eight daughters) ten survive, and all except one - who with her husband was absent in Florida - attended her funeral. Early in life she was converted under the labors of Elder James Spooney, and with her husband was baptized and united with the Markham Christian Church, which was then a branch of the Bloomington Church. Amid all the trials through which the church has since passed she remained a consistent member, living a holy and exemplary life. When others faltered she was confiding; when they fled she stood firm, attending to the means of grace to the last. We believe she was faithful unto death, and now sweetly sleeps in Jesus, awaiting the day of the Lord's appearing, when, true to his promise, he will give her a crown of life. Her funeral was attended by a large circle of relatives, friends, and neighbors, all feeling they had lost a friend; sorrowing, yet not as those who have no hope, but able to look forward with joy to the hour when the Lord shall number his jewels and gather his weary people to himself, where

"Those who meet shall part no more, And those long parted meet again."

As a wife Sister Wismer was affectionate and true, and the bereaved husband has our deep sympathy in his hours of loneliness and grief. As a mother she was gentle and kind, and her admonitions and example will long be remembered by her sorrowing children. As a neighbor she was faithful and obliging, and will not soon be forgotten. Funeral sermon by the writer, from II Timothy 4:6-822a

KNECHTEL. Sussannah, widow of the late Daniel L. Knechtel of Kitchener, Ont., died at her home Nov 13, 1935. She suffered considerably in her time, being at death's door a number of times. However, she bore all with the finest of Christian fortitude. Her perennial cheerfulness was one of her marked traits. Her steady faith in the Lord carried her through a multitude of hard experiences. She was the second oldest member of the First Mennonite Church of Kitchener. She was a faithful and highly esteemed member. Though frail, old, and her back bent to well nigh the thighs, she was loved and respected by the young, whose interests were always upon her heart. She will be greatly missed by pastor and members. She is survived by 4 sons and 1 daughter (Albert, Allen, and William, all of Kitchener; Jacob of Mannheim, and Mrs Albert Huffman of Kitchener); also 28 grandchildren and 33 great-grandchildren survive.

30088 Another of the old settlers was one Mr. Jacob Thoman, a tailor from Switzerland. He built two taverns and for a time did considerable business. The place where his first tavern stood was purchased by George Roos who took it down and erected the present three storey stone tavern. The moral character of Mr. Jacob Thoman, however, had many blemishes. He was despised by almost every body and died a miserable death, after all his property had been squandered.1a

30102 KITCHENER \emdash Ruth Norton, widow of a soda merchant, died in 1944 and left a mystery behind.

She's the last registered owner of a weedy strip of vacant land beside a planned rail transit line on Charles Street East. ....The narrow strip between Borden Avenue and King Street seems no prize today. It's at the heart of a partly derelict block. It does not have its own address, sitting between 530 and 534 Charles St. E. Shuttered businesses, boarded homes and for sale signs abound.

A century ago, it was a far more productive site, home to the small but recognized Norton Drinx soda business, a peer to prominent local industries.....1a

30127 Charles J. Trapp St. Jacobs Merchant Passes Suddenly

Ill for Three Years His Passing Was Very Sudden and Unexpected; Operated General Store

St. Jacobs and Elmira were shocked to hear of the sudden passing of one of St. Jacobs most prominent citizens and business men early Monday morning, July 3rd, when Charles J. Trapp passed away suddenly. Although his health had not been good for three years his unexpected passing came as a surprise to his friends and business associates.

For the past twenty years, the late C. J. Trapp operated a successful grocery store and later a general store in St. Jacobs. It was just ten years ago he build a new building and branched out into general merchandise. The business enjoyed a wide patronage and served a large section of the immediate district.

The late Mr. Trapp was keenly interested in his community, taking an active part in its betterment and advancement. He belonged to Calvary Evangelical Church and was a faithful member. His chief interest possibly was in the public school system and before his illness sports among the young people were a hobby of his.

The late C. J. Trapp was born and educated in Pembroke, Ont. In early life he served his apprenticeship as a druggist and later was a commercial traveler for fifteen years serving firms in London and Hamilton.

Those left to mourn their loss are his wife, the former Louise Dreisinger; one daughter, Esther, at home, and one brother, Robert; three sisters, Mrs. L. A. Weber, Edmonton; Mrs. H. Braendle, New York, and Miss Evelyn Trapp, Toronto.
Funeral services were held from Dreisinger's Funeral Chapel, Elmira, on Wednesday morning, thence to St. Jacobs Evangelical Church, with burial in Elmira Cemetery.1a

The remains of a man who has been missing since 2011 have been found near Lady Evelyn Lake in Medina Township, according to Ontario Provincial Police. The Temiskaming detachment of the OPP received a call on May 25 shortly before 6 p.m. The remains were sent to the North East Region Forensic Pathology Unit for examination and have been positively identified as Daniel Robert Trask of Kitchener. Trask was reported missing in November 2011. His car was found on Red Squirrel Road near Camp Wanapitei at Ferguson Bay after he was reported missing....1a

Missing man's remains to be returned to lake

Waterloo Region Record By Greg Mercer

WATERLOO Daniel Trask, the Waterloo man who vanished into the wilds of northern Ontario in 2011, will be returned to the remote site where his remains were found earlier this summer.

As his mother Maureen Trask readies for her final goodbye, she continues to push for legislation changes that could make it easier for investigators to solve missing person cases like his.

On Saturday, Daniel's family and a group of supporters plan to spread his ashes at an isolated lake in the Temagami area. They'll return to the site where his remains were found in May - a discovery that ended an agonizing search that lasted 3½ years.

"This will be the last chapter," his mother said. "When he was found, it was like that black cloud lifted. It was finally over, and we finally had an answer."

Daniel Trask was 28 years old when he disappeared, and the discovery of his car near Camp Wanapitei at Ferguson Bay led searchers to scour the vast wilderness surrounding it.

The search, which included divers, cadaver dogs, float planes and a volunteer backwoods rescue group from Michigan, brought Daniel's family to Temagami frequently since 2011. As their efforts dragged on, Maureen Trask united with other Waterloo Region families with missing people and began to lobby for more support for cases like theirs.

Maureen Trask can only speculate as to what killed her son, but believes a fracture in Daniel's skull was caused by a fall from a ridge and is likely the reason.

The Trasks will honour Daniel's memory in a ceremony that will celebrate the native spirituality that was so important to him, his mother said. They plan to hike about 45 minutes to an overlook near a lake where his remains were found.

Weather permitting, his mother hopes to canoe out into the lake and return his ashes to the water. Maureen Trask said Daniel found the wilds of Temagami comforting and sacred, and he'd gone there often in the past to camp and explore on his own....2a

30144 SIMPERING JIM ALLISON

from Memoirs of a great detective: incidents in the life of John Wilson Murray (1904) compiled by Victor Speer

OVER the hill from Galt, in the county of Waterloo, lies North Dumfries. The road that climbs the hill sweeps round in a big curve on the other side, as it enters the alley. Up a lane, leading from this valley road, stood a little white farmhouse, with a big unpainted barn near by. It was screened from the main road by a clump of trees, although the house stood in open ground with its door fronting on an orchard, its kitchen window opening on a cornfield. The woodpile loomed up at the end of the house nearest the barn. Rain-barrels stood in a row against the house. Milking pans shone in the sunlight. A dog dozed in the lane. Chickens scratched and pecked, and lazily fluffed their feathers and settled in the dust. It was a hot morning \emdash August 9th, 1897. Out of the house stepped a woman. She was a beauty. The freshness of girlhood had been supplanted by the charm of full womanhood. Her complexion was pale pink and white. Her big eyes were laughing and merry. A tot toddled after her, yawning drowsily, then turned back indoors. The woman shaded her eyes and looked toward the barn.

The shrill squeals of an angry pig rang out. A man's gruff voice sounded, and then around the corner of the barn came Anthony Orr, the farmer, with a big sow in his waggon.

"Going, Tony?" called the woman.

"Yep!" shouted Tony Orr. "Back in a couple of hours."

He drove away with his nine-year-old son, Norman. A moment later the hired boy, Jim Allison, appeared with two cows, and started them down the lane. They were to go to the Barrie farm near by. The woman watched her husband until the bend in the road hid him from view. She saw the Allison boy in the lane with the cows. She began to sing softly, so as not to disturb her two children \emdash Maggie, aged ten, and a-year-old baby, still asleep upstairs. Half an hour passed.

Two days before, a buggy, with an easy-going horse, had come up the lane. A stout, jolly-faced man had alighted, and had hitched his horse and had sat chatting and laughing with the handsome woman. They seemed to know and understand one another well. The man had entered his buggy and gone away, as he had come, alone. He was nowhere in sight on this morning, although he was half expected. The woman had been sitting with dreamy eyes and gentle smile, her hands clasped and lying idly in her lap. She was a pretty picture in the sunlight. Tony Orr had reason to be proud of his wife. There had been gossip of her fondness for travel and for clever companions. There even had been a tale of an elopement and a penitent return to Tony's arms and forgiveness. Neighbours had known of men callers at the white farmhouse. But Tony said all was well, and on the Orr farm that meant all was well. The woman sat still in the sunlight.

Two hours later Tony Orr returned. The farm boy, Jim Allison, was standing at the side gate of the house fence, laughing.

"What's the matter?" asked Orr.

"Oh, nothing," said Allison, laughing all the louder.

"What's the matter?" demanded Orr.

"Oh, nothing," laughed Allison.

"What's up?" roared Orr.

"Your wife's gone," said Allison.

The baby was lying on the front steps. The little girl, Maggie, was sitting on the porch. Orr hurried to the kitchen. The breakfast dishes had not been touched. Orr ran out of the house, and saw Harry Blair, an agricultural implement dealer from Galt, just getting. out of his buggy. Harry Blair was stout and jolly faced.

"My wife's gone!" shouted Orr.

"Gone! Gone where?" exclaimed the disappointed Blair.

Orr and Blair searched for her, and then got into Blair's buggy and drove to Galt, thinking she might have gone with Weldon Sidney Trevelyan, a medical student who was spending the summer in Galt, and who had been calling on her. They found Trevelyan, and he knew nothing of the woman. Orr returned home, and organised a search for his wife. The authorities were notified.

"Many believed there had been an elopement," says Murray. "Mrs. Orr was good-looking, a great favourite with men, but had a reputation. Her maiden name was Emma Borland. Her parents were well-to-do and lived at Bright. She was thirty-seven years old, and was born in Innerkip. She was first married to John Arnott, of Innerkip, who died when she was twenty-two, and three years later she married Anthony Orr, to whom she bore three children. To her children she was a loving, careful mother. To her husband she was said to be an indifferent wife. About two years previous to this she had run away with a hired man named Mulholland, but her husband caught her and her two children at Niagara Falls, and took them home again. Tony Orr was a nervous, excitable man, who had trouble with other men on account of their frequent calls on his wife. A week passed, with no trace of the wife's whereabouts.

"At first, before traces of blood were found, the elopement theory vied with the suicide theory. On the day before Mrs. Orr disappeared, Tony Orr's father was buried. Mrs. Orr attended the funeral, and some of the Orr family treated her coldly. The Orrs were an old family of good standing. On the way home from the funeral Mrs. Orr remarked that 'she was no use and guessed she'd get out of here.' This remark was the basis for the suicide talk.

"I went to the Orr farm. The boy Allison and the medical student Trevelyan had been held in Galt, and Harry Blair, the agricultural implement agent, was under surveillance. I looked the house over, a one and a half story white brick house with a frame kitchen. It was situated in a tract of country that, owing to the swamps and marshes in which it abounds, is most desolate. About two hundred yards from the house was a swamp or marsh of about one hundred acres, and above the wet and rank grass and weeds and thick soil grew almost impenetrable shrubs and trees. In this swamp was an excavation eighteen inches wide and six feet long and eighteen inches deep. It was newly dug, and clearly was an unfinished grave. I visited it in the night, and carefully took from the upturned surface the print of a man's foot, a precise clue to the digger of the grave. In order to get this, I turned back the overturned earth after digging under it so as not to break its surface and destroy the footprint I knew must be there. I took this to my hotel in Galt, unknown to anyone in the affair.

"I returned to the Orr house. A picket fence separated the patch of garden from the corn patch adjoining the house. One of the pickets of this fence was gone. The paling mark was not of long exposure. I saw this was on a line between the house and the swamp, with the corn patch lying between. One of the furrows in this corn patch was raised slightly. John Orr, Tony's brother, poked it with his stick. Six inches beneath the surface lay Mrs. Orr, face down, buried amid the corn within thirty feet of her house. That put an end to elopement or suicide theories. When I saw the half-dug grave in the swamp I knew there had been murder. The grave in the corn patch was but temporary. The murderer intended to hide the body for ever in the swamp.

"Back to Galt I went. Trevelyan proved an absolute alibi. Harry Blair, agitated over the whole affair, was not at the farmhouse when the deed was done, and had nothing to do with it. Tony Orr was five miles away at a neighbour's, with his son and the sow. Allison \emdash I went to see this boy. I had his old shoe, and it fitted the footprint by the grave in the swamp. He looked almost a freak. He was about seventeen years old, big for his age, and tremendously stocky in his build. His bow legs were big and muscular. His hands and feet were enormous. His shoulders were broad, his neck was thick, his arms were long and powerful. His features reminded me of the features of a frog. The forehead was low and retreating, and the face was very full at the sides. The hair was brown, cut close, and thc eyes were a greenish brown \emdash large, watery eyes, uneasy, shifting, catlike. The mouth was very large, and the lips were full and seemed to simper, giving the face a cat's expression. He walked with a peculiar, rolling motion, as if he would have preferred to be on all fours. He wore heavy, clod shoes, blue jeans, a calico shirt, and a faded, slouch hat pulled well over his eyes.

"I sat down and faced this boy.

"'What do you know of this murder?' I said.

"'Nothing,' he answered, with a grin.

"'Tell me where you were on that morning,' said I.

"'I left Orr's, with two cows, about 7.20,' he said. 'I got to Barrie's farm about eight o'clock, and I left there about 8.50 and got back to Orr's about 9.40. When I got back Mrs. Orr was gone.'

"'How did you know she was gone?'

"'She was not anywhere around,' said the boy.

"'Where is your shot gun?' I asked.

"'Just before I left with the cows, Mrs. Orr asked me to show her the gun, and she asked me how it was used, and I explained it, and then put it back and went on with the cows,' he lied glibly.

"His gun, which always was kept in the house, was found hidden in the hay-mow in the barn. It had been discharged. There were blood-stains on it.

"'Allison,' I said slowly, 'you killed Mrs. Orr.'

"He started up, white as flour, shaking like a man with ague. I waited for his confession. He mumbled, hesitated, and \emdash sat down and grinned. For four hours I worked with him. He grinned and lied.

"An idea previously had occurred to me. Allison's father, Alex Allison, was city scavenger of Galt. The father had seen the boy alone. That night the father was followed. It was before the finding of the body was generally known. The father had gone to the swamp to finish, for his son, the half-dug grave. The boy had told him of it.

"'Allison,' I said to the boy, 'your father says you dropped your knife at the grave in the swamp.'

"'No I didn't, for I left it when I went \emdash\emdash '

"He stopped. It was on the tip of his tongue trembling, quivering, almost out.

"'That's enough,' I said.

"Some newspapers declaimed against my examination of this boy, and talked of a sweat-box system, and asserted the boy's innocence. In due time their mistake was revealed.

"The evidence was overwhelming when it all was collected. There was no need to use the footprint by the grave. Allison was proved by neighbours and folk on the road to have the exclusive opportunity to do the deed. His blood-stained gun had been fired, and the empty cartridge found in it was one he had taken from a box in the house. John Orr and his family on the next farm had heard a gunshot after Tony left with the sow. Allison had called out Mrs. Orr from the house, shot at her, clubbed her to death, then buried her temporarily in the cornfield, and at night dug the grave in the swamp. He had importuned her, and she refused him, and the murder followed.

"The grand jury found a true bill on November 29th, and Allison's trial followed at once. Chief Justice Meredith presided. H.P. O'Connor, K.C., prosecuted, and J.R. Blake and J.J.H. Weir defended. On Friday, December 3rd, 1897, this seventeen-year-old murderer was found guilty, and was sentenced to be hanged in Berlin gaolyard on Friday, February 4th, 1898. His father fell in an epileptic fit when he heard the verdict.

"Smiling serenely, Jim Allison went up to his death. He mounted the scaffold unaided at eight o'clock on a raw, snowy morning. He shook hands politely with the guards, the hangman, and the minister, waited quietly while the black cap and noose were adjusted, stepped on to the trap at 8, and dropped into eternity.

"Allison had learned to read and write a little in his six months in a cell, and he had scrawled laboriously the following on a piece of paper:

"'I am sorry for my crime. I did it out of ill-will. I hope those whom I wronged will forgive me, and that no one will turn this up to my people. My sentence is just, and I hope God will have mercy on me.'

"He signed this, and read it to them when they came to take him out and hang him."

__________________________

The village of Shade's Mills was the most important place within a radius of twenty miles, but its growth, continued to be very tardy. In the year 1827, however a circumstance occurred, which will be noticed presently, and which somewhat improved its fortunes.

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

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

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

To make a long story short, Tribe agreed to confirm the title for $150, and came down to Mr. Ainslie's office the following week for the purpose. Mr. Ainslie appointed 9 o'clock that afternoon for him and his wife to come and execute the necessary papers. The hour arrived, but they did not. The next day it was ascertained that Tribe had sold out all his own and his wife's interest to Mr. John Miller, Barrister, had executed a deed for the acre lot, and left the village! This was sad news for Mackenzie, and made the difficulties far greater than ever.

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

*Clarke long went by the name of "Old Johnny Clarke," and is well remembered for his loquaciousness and other peculiarities. He owned the farm of Rosehill, adjoining Galt, at one time, but sold it, and took up Lot 7 in the 5th Concession of South Dumfries. Becoming old, he subsequently went to reside with some friends at Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he survived until a few years ago.2a

30146 Henry Tribe is my 3rd great grandfather. He was part of the Petworth emigration with (some) of his family in 1832. His daughter, Charlotte married Joseph Evans sometime shortly after her arrival in the Waterloo area of Ontario.These are my 2nd great grandparents. A letter cited in your book was written from Charlotte to her brother back in Sussex, England and signed by her husband (Joseph "Neuroke" Evans).

After some delay due to a cholera outbreak in the area, Charlotte and Joseph settled in Blenheim Township, Oxford County, Ontario and raised a family. Their first child, Connell, is my great grandfather.1a

30147 Mr. and Mrs. Tribe, with their family, came from Sussex, England, in the year 1832. Mr. Tribe died during the first winter that the family was in Canada and was buried near Cornell's, on the site of which is now the 'Cress House' in Preston. In this family there were: Benjamin, who married Mary Ann Lepard and lived in Pilkington; Johnathan married Martha Cornell, while Harry and Richard were not married. The daughters were Sarah, who was Mrs. Rapson; Charlotte was Mrs. Evans, and Mary was Mrs. Thomas Irvine, of Paisley, and it was at her home that her mother, Mrs. Tribe, died.

The members of this, the older Penfold family, children of Jesse Penfold and Jane Tribe, were: Matilda, born in Sussex, England, on the same day as Queen Victoria, May 24th, 1819, and came to Canada in 1832. She was married to Thomas Adsett and they lived on a farm on the east side of the river road, which was the next farm south of Mr. Wollis'. They afterwards removed to Guelph, where Mr. Adsett died on April 21st, 1870, at the age of seventy.

In the year 1844, Jesse Penfold took up the farm on which he has lived for sixty-two years, and he was the first settler on the west side of the river, between West Montrose and Elora, which is a distance of eight miles. His farm is known as Lot 64 in the German Company's Tract, west of the Grand River, in the township of Woolwich. Among those in this family there are: Susannah, married Thomas Batters, lives in Saskatchewan; Thomas married Margaret Annette Harvey and lives in Port Arthur; Elizabeth married Jacob B.

30148 Continuing along the river road to the northward, on the east side of the river, we come to the new Guelph & Goderich Railway, which has been under construction during the past year The first to take up a farm in this neighborhood was one by the name of Isaac Kepke. He was followed by Michael Spiez and then, on the same farm, west of the river road and that through which the railway is built, was Jonathan Tribe. Jonathan Tribe married Martha Cornell and those in their family were: Nathaniel married Phoebe Lawrence . Thomas married Annias Sugg; Martha was unmarried; Miriam married Oscar Woodward; William married and lived in Michigan; Joseph and Alice went west to Alberta.
Jonathan Tribe died on March 1 2th, 1872, at the age of forty nine years and nine months. Mrs. Tribe went west, and died near Calgary, Alberta.

The one who followed Jonathan Tribe on part of this farm was Richard Moreill, who was born in Robin Hood's Forest, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, England, on April 10th, 1809. He lived at Markham, Toronto and Brampton before coming to this farm in Woolwich.1a

30155 FREDERICK TRISINGER is one of the stockholders and a prominent member of the Wakarusa Lumber Company, which is one of the most active firms in its line of work in the county. Mr. Trisinger was born in Canada, September 11, 1853, to Adam and Julia A. (Ohlheiser) Trisinger, the former of whom was born in Germany in 1826, or about that time, and was a son of Frederick and Julia A. Trisinger, who came to America with their family and settled in Canada, where a number of years were spent. They then came to Elkhart county, Ind. (in 1860), but the grandfather died during the trip and the grandmother passed from this life in St. Joseph county, Ind., about 1872. They reared a family of five children: Adam, Jacob, John, Philipbena and Lena, all of whom are living, but only one resides in this section of the county - Lena. The grandfather was a farmer throughout life and succeeded in accumulating a valuable property. Adam Trisinger was the second child born to his parents, and prior to their leaving Germany they acquired a good education in the schools of that country. He grew up on a farm in Canada, but also learned the butcher's trade, which calling he followed the greater part of his life. He was married in Canada and three of his children were born there. In 1856 he located in Elkhart county, Ind., and took up his residence in the vicinity of Wakarusa, after a short residence on that place, and till after the Civil war tilled a farm in Harrison township. He then moved to Bremen, Marshall county, where he conducted a butcher shop two years; then once more returned to Wakarusa, where he resided until his removal to Michigan. From that place he went to St. Joseph county, Ind., and for the past four or five years he has lived in that county. His children are as follows: Jacob, who died at the age of four years; Frederick, the subject of this sketch; Lena, who died in childhood; Mary, who was born in Indiana, is the wife of Jacob Harrington, and is a resident of Olive township, Elkhart county; and Catherine, who was born in Indiana, died in childhood. The mother of these children died in 1864, having been born in Germany. Like her husband she removed to Canada where her early life was spent. She was a life-long member of the German Lutheran Church, was a noble mother and a faithful and affectionate wife. After her death the father took for his second wife Miss Julia A. Burlingcourt, who is still living and has borne him five children: Lucinda, who is married and lives in South Bend, Ind.; Elizabeth, who also resides there; John, Solomon and William. Mr. Trisinger is a member of the German Baptist Church, in politics is a Republican, and is well known for his public spirit and intelligence. Frederick Trisinger was a child of three years when he was brought to Elkhart county, and in the public schools of this section he received a good practical, business education. He left home when only thirteen years of age, and since that time has made his own way in the world, and until he was twenty years of age his earnings were given to his father. He learned and worked at the carpenter's trade, succeeded well in his undertakings, and in 1877 engaged in saw-milling, and became a member of the Smeltzer Sons & Co., and since 1879 has helped to operate the business successfully. They manufacture all kinds of lumber for building purposes, and make a specialty of this kind of lumber. The members of this well-known firm are: Jacob H. Dell, John Smeltzer, H. J. Smeltzer, Fred Trisinger and Anthony Smeltzer. The mill has a capacity of 7,000 feet per day, for which a ready and profitable market is found. Mr. Trisinger was married on January 7, 1877, to Miss Elizabeth Smeltzer, a daughter of John Smeltzer. She was born June 29, 1860, and has presented her husband with two children, only one of whom is living, Maudie J., who was born on March 20, 1885. The other child died in infancy. Mr. and Mrs. Trisinger are members of the Christian Church at Wakarusa, and in politics Mr. Trisinger is a Republican, the interests of which he has always furthered to the best of his ability. As a man of affairs he has shown remarkable foresight and it is owing to his good judgment and business acumen that he has accumulated the handsome property of which he is now the owner. He and Mrs. Trisinger are considered among the first people of Wakarusa, and their hospitable home is a favorite resort for their numerous friends.1a

A Visitor from Wakarusa, IndianaMr. Frederick Trisinger Revisits Birthplace

On Saturday, Mr. Frederick Trisinger of Foraker, and his sister, Mrs. Jacob Herrington, of Wakarusa, Indiana, arrived in Elmira, on a visit to relatives. Mr. Trisinger was born in Elmira, but removed to Foraker, with his parents in 1858 when he was 8 years of age. His first visit after crossing the line, was 81 years ago, another 6 years and one 3 years ago. For 42 years he was engaged in the retail lumber business but he is now living retired with his married daughter in Wakarusa - his wife died three years ago. There is a deal of building going on in Wakarusa. Prices are as high there as here but it has been his experience that more building is done when lumber for instance is high than when it is cheap. Probably for the reason that people then have more money with which to build. Time was when the homes in American towns and villages were mostly frame ones but since lumber has become high in price his neighbors are going in for brick. The principal lumber used is George pine, which costs $100 per thousand. Hard brick sell at from $30 to $40 per thousand. Citizens of Wakarusa are getting tired of paying rent and are building homes of their own. Mr. Trisinger has always considered this the better way. Lumber will not, in his opinion, ever go back to prewar prices. It may some time in the future recede a little. Mr. Trisinger likes to revist Elmira and renew friendships here. He expects to remain two weeks this time. He notes the growth of our community, admires its numerous progressive industries, and says: "Elmira is a good town."2a

The child was sent by her grand-parents to her aunt, Mrs. Paul Kloskowski, who resides here. During the trip, the little one bore a card on which the people she would come in contact with were requested to treat her kindly. The girl has three other aunts in Berlin, among them, the wife of Mr. F. Tylinski.1a

30162 Former New Germany Teacher Becomes Leading Montana Citizen

Tom Troy Born In Canada, Taught School At New Germany, Studied In Ottawa University, Alberta School Superintendent Now Montana Legislator, Bank Director Realty Promoter, and Rancher.

A recent issue of the Toledo blade contains an interesting article on Thomas J. Troy, who some time ago was well known in this vicinity. For several years he was school teacher at New Germany, and later joined the Faculty of St. Jerome's college. In the Toledo Blade, Harry L. Hawes writes as follows:


Did you ever hunt timber wolves over the plains in a ford? It is relished as a great sport out in Montana, and state representative Thomas J. Troy finds relaxation in it after the strenuous duties of legislator, bank director, realty promoter and rancher. Also he finds it necessary for the protection of his herd of 1,500 Hereford cattle on his 10,000 acre ranch in the Bear's Paw Mountains his home state.

Tom Troy was a well known athlete back in 1892, when as a student in the University of Ottawa he set a world's record in the 16-pound shot put. He heaved the shot 49 feet, eight and one-half inches, in a track meet in Montreal in 1892 and for some years it stood as the title mark.

Stars as Legislator

But it wasn't Tom Troy's prowess as an athlete that has endeared him to the heart of every eagle in America: rather it was his subtlety as a legislator when the Montana legislature passed the old age pension act two years ago, it was representative Troy of Havre, who drafted it. There was a lot of opposition To the measure, opposition that was earnest and strong, and a husky-limbed attempt To have it repealed was launched.


Representative Troy, however, stuck by his guns so staunchly that the effort to defeat the law was defeated, and it now stands, approved by the highest courts of the state, on the statute books. Dozens of unfortunate indigents, worthy men and women weo lacked only the adroitness or skill to meet the economic conflict with life, are praying that his life may be full of success, contentment and happiness. Without Tom Troy's battle in the legislative halls, they might today be inmates of the county alms houses.

Tom troy is a big, strapping, quiet man with Irish eyes that somehow caught The color of skies in October. They are straight eyes, unwavering, and expect straight dealings. Somehow you know they reflect a heart that has yet to know what fear means. The body is strong, well knit, and at the age of 54 its owner doesn't carry an ounce of extra weight.


Born in Canada

Tom Troy was born in Canada and received his bachelor's University of Ottawa. After graduation he accepted a place on the faculty of St. Jerome's College in Berlin (Kitchener) Ontario. About four weeks thereafter He decided that a place on a college faculty as a teacher of science and mathematics offered no real opportunity to get on in the world, and after a few semesters he accepted the superintendency of public schools in McCloud, Alberta. It was a distinct step upward, but still his restless spirit sought a more spacious adventure than that offered as a pedagogue.

The shift in his life came July 4, 1897. On the holiday, being young and in festive mood, he crossed the border to participate in the celebration of the Fourth in Great Falls, Montana. He participated to such purpose that he won the 100 yard dash, the high jump, all the weight heaving contests, and was chosen captain of the tug-of-war team which on that memorable day wrested the title from the champion rope holder's of the state. He decided he would come to Montana to live.

What Tom Troy said exactly in mentioning the incident was: "I found Montana as such a hell of a fine country that I resigned my job in Canada and became superintendent of schools in Nightheart in that state. I have never regretted The change".

It was in Nightheart that Tom met the Montana girl he married. They have six children, Tom, the oldest being a student in the law school at Washington University: Bill, the second son, being a student of medicine at the University of Montana, and two younger boys and a couple of daughters are in the public schools of Havre.

Owned Choice Lots

It was in Havre that representative troy laid the basis for his fortune. He was at the head of the public schools in that bustling town when James J. Hill decided to locate the great northern car shops there, and the town suddenly trebled in population. Along with the boom his townsmen discovered that the head school master had options on the choicest lots, and Tom cleaned up.

Today Tom Troy passes his time between his big home in Havre, his bank, the State Capital, and the E-Bar-2 Ranch, 18 miles back in the mountains. He yearns not at all for distinction, or further political preferment, but he holds close to a social vision of which the old age pension measure is only a starter. He has time for contemplation, and he is content to pass all his days, with only occasional visits to New York, London, Paris and Washington, in Montana.

"Jack is as good as his master there".

30169 103 Years Old County Pioneer Geo. Trussler

Dies Waterloo County's Grand Old Man Dies After Brief Illness.

NEW DUNDEE— Waterloo County's grand old man, George Trussler, who celebrated his 103rd birthday last June 5, passed away at his home near here on Saturday evening. Mr. Trussler had been in his usual health until the day before Christmas when the doctor was first summoned. His death robs the county of one of its few remaining pioneers who according to his own opinion lived in one of the greatest centuries of progress the world has ever known. Born near Preston, Ont., on June 5, 1838, Mr. Trussler was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. George Trussler, who came to Canada from Sussex, England, in 1833. When one year of age he moved with his parents to the 240 acres of virgin land bordering the Huron Road which is now owned by his son, Oscar Trussler. Here he and his family cleared the land, built homes for themselves, as well as assisting with constructing the first roads in the district.
Retained Excellent Memory
Blessed with an excellent memory, Mr. Trussler could relate many interesting stories of the early settlement of this part of the country. Even after retiring from active farming more than forty years ago he did not give up his hobby of gardening and was well-known for his lovely flowers. Hunting and travelling were other favourite hobbies. The late Mr. Trussler was particularly fond of reading and kept a diary almost continuously until he passed his 100th birthday. A highlight in his centennial celebration were the telegrams received from their majesties, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, Prime Minister Mackenzie King and Premier Hepburn. Mr. Trussler was always proud of the fact that he had lived under the reign of five sovereigns. In religion be was a Christa Delphian.
Mrs, Trussler Died at 92
1n 1859 Mr. Trussler married Miss Sarah Brighton, who passed away in her 92nd year, severing a partnership that lasted 74 years, one of the longest marriages on record. Mr. Trussler has outlived four of his eight children, his oldest son, Thomas, of Trout Creek, Ont., having died last winter in his 81st year. Four other sons are still living, namely: James and Gilbert of Orillia; Oscar on the old homestead, and Herbert of British Columbia. Two sons and a daughter, Byron; Albert and Jessie; all predeceased him several years ago. The funeral was held on Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 31st, with a private service at 2 o'clock at the home of his son, Oscar Trussler, Huron Road, followed by a public, service at the Rosebank Tunker Church. Interment was made in the adjoining cemetery.

30182 ...told by Mrs. John Bury that when the cemetery [St. Agatha] was first laid out and made ready for burials, a collection was taken up to defray the expenses of clearing and fencing. The collector approached a young man named Zeisele, the hired man of a neighboring farmer. The young man deferred and said he should not be asked to contribute to the work because he might never need the cemetery. A short time after, while logging, he was caught between the logs and crushed to death. Thus he was one of the first to need burial there.1a

30197 Charles E. Tuerk, a member of the Blakely Marsh Printing Company, was born at Elberfeld, West Prussia, Germany, on December 3, 1847. In 1850, his parents came to America, and settled at Pittsburgh, where the family lived for 4 years, his father being a Lutheran minister. In 1854, the family moved to Berlin, Ont., where his father became a convert to the Swedenborgian faith, which he has since preached. Up to fourteen years of age, Mr. Tuerk had attended the schools of Canada, except the last year, when he attended a German school. At fourteen he was served an apprenticeship at the mercantile business for 3 years. At twenty he had a management of a store for one year when he went to Boston and attended a Latin school, and in 1871 came to Chicago. He and his brother, Fred W. Tuerk, in connection with Hon. J. Young Scammon, who furnished the capital, established the first vegetable-ivory button factory in Illinois at Kankakee, from which have sprung several button factories throughout the State. The ivory comes from Venezuela, South America; their first shipment was 52 tons. He clerked for an insurance office in this city until 1873, when he was largely instrumental in establishing a publication called the Field and Stream, now known as the American Field which has grown under the able management of the present owner, Dr. Rowe, to be the largest and most successful paper of its kind in America. Mr. Tuerk was half owner of the above paper for six months, when he sold out to other parties, and Hon. C. W. Marsh purchased the interests of said paper and sunk $30,000 in its establishment. Mr. Tuerk returned to the insurance business; but a few months after Mr. Marsh bought an interest in the printing firm of Blakely E. Brown, the firm name becoming Blakely, Brown & Marsh; and placed Mr. Tuerk in the firm to look after his interests. In Sept. 1881, the latter bought the Brown interest, and since the incorporation of the company has been its secretary. He was married on March 8, 1875 to Letta Reutel of this city. They have 2 children \endash Emil Ferdinand and Irma Louisa1a

30198 Carmel Church of the New Jerusalem

There was a split in the Kitchener Swedenborgian congregation on September 18, 1891. One group, known as the Convention Church, continued to worship in the stone Swedenborgian Church, located at the corner of King and Water Streets, with Rev. F.W. Tuerk as pastor. The other group met in private homes until their new frame church, known as the Carmel Church Society, was erected in 1892 at 820 King Street West. A house at the corner of Shanley and Andrew Streets in Berlin was used as a school until school rooms were ready in the building at 820 King West. Rev. Frederick E. Waelchli was the first Pastor.

The congregation called itself The Academy of the New Church in Berlin, Canada, until 1897 when its name was changed to The Carmel Church of the New Jerusalem. The church was seriously damaged by fire on October 19, 1929 but it was possible to effect repairs as well as some remodelling at the same time.

A new church was built, and dedicated on November 25, 1962 at Caryndale near Strasburg; a church-operated elementary school is part of the church complex. The last service in the old church on King Street was held on November 11, 1962. The building was sold and razed in 1963; a Medical Arts Building is located on the property now. Carmel Church is a society of the New Church, and is now referred to as The Carmel Church of the General Church of the New Jerusalem. The headquarters of the church's parent body is in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. The church's schools located there include a College, Theological School, High School and Elementary Schools.1a

Church of the Good Shepherd

The congregation began meeting in various locations as early as 1833, with Christian Enslin as leader. A small frame church was built on Frederick Street in 1842, and was called The Free Church; the congregations of four denominations held services in it. The seating space in the Free Church became insufficient for the growing Swedenborgian congregation with the result that land on the northwest corner of Church and Benton Streets was purchased in 1847 from Joseph E. Schneider. A frame church with a seating capacity of 150 was built in the same year; the church was called the New Church (Uttley 1937:64). Several decades later a larger church was again needed. Land was purchased on the northeast corner of King and Water Streets where a new stone church was built and completed in 1870. The old church was sold to the congregation of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Serious differences resulted in a formal split in the Berlin Swedenborgian congregation on September 18, 1891. One group, the predecessor of this congregation, whose pastor was Rev. F.W. Tuerk (June 1857-July 3, 1901), continued to worship in the stone church. The other group, eventually to be known as the Carmel Church of the New Jerusalem, built their church in 1892 at 820 King Street West; their pastor was Rev. F.E. Waelchli. In 1935 the congregation purchased land on the corner of Queen Street North and Margaret Avenue as the site for a new church. The Church of the Good Shepherd is a Convention Church of the New Jerusalem. 2a

Death Death of Rev. F. W. Tuerk.

Died Very Suddenly of Heait Failure on Wednesday Afternoon - A Brief Sketch of His Career


Very great was the shock Berlin citizens received on Wednesday afternoon when the news spread throughout the town that Rev. F. W. Tuerk, the esteemed pastor of the New Jerusalem Church, was suddenly called by death, while enjoying comparatively good health and in the best of spirits. The reverend gentleman had just completed writing a letter to one of his sons and was passing from his library to the drawing room when he fell over and died almost instantly. His wife, who was the only other person in the house, heard him fall, and quickly went to the aid of her deceased husband. She applied some household restoratives, but saw it was of no avail, and immediately sent for the physician, who, on his arrival, pronounced death due to heart failure. The news spread very quickly and sorrowing friends went immediately to the aid of the family with expressions of regret and sympathy, and tangible offers of assistance.

Rev. Mr. Tuerk was over 80 years of age, and up to a short time ago enjoyed the best of health, but lately his age has had a visible effect upon his former strong constitution and his earlier vitality had begun to take its departure. About a month ago he was granted a few months' rest to recuperate, by his congregation, and as a result was steadily regaining his usual strength, only to be cut down suddenly by the Grim Reaper, Death.

SKETCH OF HIS LIFE

Frederick William Tuerk was born on September 23rd, 1820, at Rade, in the District of Dusseldurf, In Rhenish Prussia, Germany, and was trained from a tender age to habits of piety and love for religion.

In the year 1848, when many Germans were emigrating to America, a tract fell into his hands, entitled "The Night in the West," describing the sad state of religion in the western part of the United States, which made such an impression on him that he proposed to emigrate to the new world and labor there for the kingdom of God. He accordingly wrote to the author of the tract, Mr Rouschenbusch, who was editor of the German edition of the "American Messenger," published in New York by the American Tract Society, and who encouraged his coming to America, promising to secure a suitable position for him. Mr Tuerk with his wife and three little children arrived in New York on July 3rd, 1849. He was appointed colporteur and missionary in Pittsburg, Pa. From this city as a centre he undertook missionary trips and sold religious books and Bibles.

During the month of (June 10, 1857), Mr. Tuerk had made his appearance in Cincinnati, at the meeting of the General Convention of the New Church. On the 12th of June he was baptized by the Rev. Thomas Worcester, President of the General Convention, and was ordained by him on the following Sunday.

He was the first ordained minister of the New Church In all Canada, and at once began an active propaganda, preaching at various places in the province of Ontario. In the course of a few years he had organized societies in Hamburg, Wellesley, Toronto and Hamilton. The Society at Wellesley was formed immediately after his coming to Berlin, and in the fall of the next year (1858) he laid the corner-stone of a church which was dedicated in the following year. Mr. Tuerk has had pastoral care of this Society ever since, preaching regularly once a month.

In the year 1862 the "Association of the New Jerusalem" was formed, with Mr. Tuerk as President. On the 12th of June, 1864, seven years after his ordination, he was consecrated an ordaining minister by the Rev. Thomas Worcester, assisted by the Rev. J. R. Hibbard and the Rev. J. P. Stuart, and he has been annually re-elected President of the Association.

Mr Tuerk was one of the founders of the "German Missionary Union of the New Church," which was organized in Boston in the year 1872. He was elect-ed President, and has continued in this office. On April 1st, 1887, the Union began the publication of a monthly periodical (Neukirchenblatt), of which he was editor for live years, when he resigned, owing to pressure of other duties, and was appointed an associate editor.

Twice in his long pastorate he has had ministers associated with him. The first was the Rev F. E. Waelchli, who acted as assistant Minister for a few years, and the second was the Rev L. H. Tafel, who was associate pastor for five years.

Of Mr Tuerk's activity in behalf of the New Church, the records bear the following impressive witness: Up to the close of the year 1900 he had baptised 981 persons, of whom 741 were children and 240 adults, the latter, so far as is known, being all converts from the old Church. He confirmed 322 sons and daughters of New-Church parentage, married 254 couples, and ministered at 209 funerals, at nearly all of which he delivered funeral discourses.

The deceased reverend was married about the year 1844; By this marriage eight children were born to them, one daughter and seven sons, viz: Ida Tuerk, Berlin; Fred W., Berlin; Chas. E., London, Eng., Aug. H., deceased; Albert, Chicago; G. Adolph, Berlin; Louis E., Chicago; Samuel 0., Fulton, Y. Y.

The Rev. Air. Tuerk will be greatly missed by the, citizens of Berlin of every denomination for his genial and kind disposition and the great interest he took in matters which pertained to the welfare of the town. He was very liberal in his views and his discourses in his pulpit always called forth deep thought and earnest heart searching on the part of his hearers. Berlin loses one of its best and men extends its sincere regrets and deep sympathy to the family which mourn the loss of a husband and father, and to the congregation of New Jerusalem church, for the loss of its able and faithful pastor of over fifty years.

The funeral will take place from his late residence, Queen Street, South, on Sunday, July 7th, 1901, at 2 o'clock p.m., to the New Jerusalem Temple for services, thence to Mount Hope Cemetery for interment.3a

30200 Description: Patent Data

Albert Tuerk and Adolph G. Tuerk, of Chicago, Illinois, gas-stove, patent #303343; issued August 12, 1884; filed September 14, 1883; no date filled in on application. Signed Albert Tuerk and Adolph G. Tuerk. (The signature on the drawing is identical to that of Gustavus A. Tuerk; Charles E. Gaylord appears on both as a witness, and the law firm is the same as the following patent, 348504.)

Gustavus A. Tuerk, Chicago, Illinois, water-motor, patent #348504; issued August 31, 1886; filed March 5, 1886; no date filled in on application. I believe this patent was the basis for a Supreme Court of New York State trademark lawsuit that was not tried until December 26, 1895 entitled Tuerk Motor Power Company (of Chicago, Illinois) vs. Tuerk, et al. (consisting of Frederick W. Tuerk, (brother of Gustavus), John Hunter and James C. Hunter. According to the suit, "in the Spring of 1886, Frederick W. Tuerk severed his connection with the plaintiff (the Tuerk Motor Power Company) and entered into a partnership with the defendants under the style of the Tuerk Water-Meter Company and that the partnership had its place of business at Syracuse, N.Y." It was further claimed that Frederick W. Tuerk had been an employee of the company. The plaintiff in 1895 of the Tuerk Hydraulic Motor Company (formerly Tuerk Motor Power Company) was not Frederick W. Tuerk. The only one of this family to patent a water-motor patent besides Frederick W. was Gustavus A.

Indeed, Frederick W. Tuerk located in Syracuse, New York by May 20, 1886 at which time he assigned two-thirds of his patent rights to the Hunters for a rotary water-meter, patent #362047 in which he references his Chicago patent 328544 dated October 20, 1885. By January 31, 1887, the Tuerk Water Meter Company of Syracuse, had been formed. James C. Hunter came to Syracuse, New York from Sterling Valley, New York and was present when a patent application was signed on January 8, 1887 for yet another two-thirds to the Hunters by Frederick W. Tuerk, Jr. for a water motor (400610).

To get back to the 1895 lawsuit, it was contended by the plaintiff (the Tuerk Hydraulic Motor Company; formerly the Tuerk Water Motor Company of Chicago) that the Frederick W. Tuerk and Hunter partnership was organized "for manufacturing a water meter, no meters were were actually made or sold; and that some time prior to December 1886, a motor similar in general appearance to that of the plaintiff " was produced. After investigation, it was found that the Tuerk Water Meter Company had manufactured a water motor called "Tuerk's New Water Motor," and it was designed by "Tuerk Motor, Syracuse, N.Y." Basically, Frederick W. Tuerk and the Hunters were found guilty of trademark infringement and could no longer use the name "Tuerk Water-Meter Company" (The New York Supplement containing the decisions of the Supreme and Lower Courts of Record of New York State, St. Paul: West Publishing Co., 1896, Vol. 36, pp. 384-386). In late 1889, Frederick W. Tuerk and his brother, Samuel O., moved from Syracuse to Fulton where they were still associated with the Hunters under the name Tuerk Water Meter Company. After the 1895 lawsuit, the Hunters bought up the remaining interest from Frederick W. Tuerk and the Hunter Fan and Motor Company was created in 1896 (see also patents of Frederick W.).

CHARLES TURNBULL


1858-1924 Married: Margaret McIlwraith

Charles Turnbull was a son of Robert Turnbull and Elizabeth Graham. When his father died at the early age of 52 in 1879. Charles and his younger brother John Turnbull took over the operations of the Turnbull Knitting Company. Although only 21, Mr. Turnbull had a considerable knowledge and understanding of the business since he had been managing the operation for the 18 months previous to his father's death. In 1881 a joint stock company was formed under the name the C. Turnbull Co. Limited and in 1890 the company expanded into more spacious surroundings in the old Wardlaw mill on North Water Street. When this building was destroyed by fire in 1897 a new stone structure was erected on the site. It is part of this mill which forms the ruins now found in Mill Race Park. Although full-fashioned underwear was always Turnbull's major and most famous product, the company also produced the "knit and cut" type of underwear after about 1900 and began the manufacture of women's rayon underwear in 1925. It was in the early 1920's that the company reached its peak level of employment with about 450 hands. Mr. Turnbull was president of the Gore Mutual Insurance Company from 1923 to 1925 and was a member of the first board of directors of Galt's first free library when it was organized in 1900. Mr. Turnbull died on December 30, 1924 and is buried in Mount View Cemetery.

Turnbull, Manufacturer of Full Finished Lambs' Wool Underclothing - The business conducted by the above-named firm was established by Mr. Robert Turnbull, father of the present proprietor, 30 years ago, and was successfully carried on by him until his death in 1879, when Mr. Charles Turnbull became proprietor, and has still further increased its success. The premises occupied are two detached buildings, covering over half an acre of ground, and are two stories in height and rough-cast. It is a one-set mill, and he manufactures entirely full fashioned knit goods, underwear for ladies, gents and children, the quality of material used being of the very finest, and the workmanship and finish unsurpassed by that of any other makers in the Dominion. The trade extends throughout the Dominion, from Windsor to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The goods have a sharp demand in the market, for their superiority is recognized and their trade value established. For the excellence of these goods he received an award at the Centennial Exhibition in 1876, and bronze and silver medals at the Industrial Fair, in Toronto, in 1880. Mr. Charles Turnbull is a native of Canada, of Scottish descent, and is a young gentleman of marked business ability and enterprise, and thoroughly understands all the details of the business he so ably conducts.3a

___________________________

Jennie Ferguson Turnbull was born in 1896 on the family farm in the Mill Creek area of North Dumfries Township. Her great-grandfather, Duncan Ferguson, was an original pioneer settler at Mill Creek. Her parents were Jerad Turnbull and Jessie Ferguson, and Jennie's life-long interest in history \emdash an interest which led to her substantial contributions in the field of local history \emdash seems to have been encouraged by both of them. Of her father, Jennie said, "he was very fond of telling stories... I was given wonderful pictures of his childhood days." Of her mother, she reflected, "I feel that she'd had a very very keen mind... And she had a wonderful memory [for] things... And [she was] very ambitious for her daughter."

Jennie's paternal grandparents had immigrated from Scotland; Andrew Turnbull was one of the first trustees of Mill Creek School. Jennie had a vivid memory of her maternal grandmother, Jane Elliott Ferguson, crossing Mill Creek by walking along a log with Jennie's mother, in order to return to the family's farm.

Jennie's precise memories of her childhood evoke a long-vanished way life in rural Ontario at the beginning of the last century. She was educated in a one-room school, the Mill Creek Public School, attended by 40 students of all grades. The school had two ante-rooms, one for the boys and one for the girls, and was heated with a large woodstove located at the back of the room, with the wood stored in a woodshed behind the school. The teacher's desk was on a raised platform at the front of the room. Jennie fondly remembered....2a

Jennie Ferguson (Turnbull) Cowan was born in the Mill Creek area near Galt in 1898, a daughter of Jared Turnbull. She was educated at Mill Creek School and at the Galt Collegiate Institute before graduating from the Toronto Normal School and the University of Toronto. She taught school in Bruce County, Kitchener and Galt. The latter positions assisted in developing a keen interest in the history of Galt and particularly of Waterloo County and she spent much of her life acquiring and sharing her knowledge of the area. She served as the president of the Waterloo Historical Society from 1951 to 1953 and, between 1940 and 1960 was a regular contributor to the Waterloo Historical Society's annual volume. In later years she was a more occasional contributor with her last article appearing in 1984. Mrs. Cowan was active in the Mill Creek Women's Institute and in 1941 and 1942 served on the Board of the Federated Women's Institutes of Ontario. She gave leadership in the Women's Institutes to compile the community histories named for Lady Tweedsmuir and served as London area curator. She felt strongly that these books were useful ways to preserve and share historical information. She was a charter member of the Ontario Pioneer Community Foundation that established the Doon Pioneer Village, now Doon Heritage Crossroads. In 1952 Mrs. Cowan acted as official historian for Waterloo County's centennial. She was on the research committee of the Waterloo County Hall of Fame and was herself elected to the Hall in 1978.

____________________

Death of Mrs. George Barrie - Last week the Reporter contained a sort notice of the death of Mrs. James Cowan, and therein was mentioned that of the old folks who remained to us the most prominent were Mrs. George Barrie and Mrs. David Potter. Today we are called upon to record the death of one of these two in the person of Mrs. George Barrie, who passed quietly away on Tuesday, at 1 o'clock, pm. Mrs. Barrie was born in Lilliesleaf, Roxboroughshire, Scotland, and was married there, emigrating to Canada, with her husband, in 1829, in company with the last James Cowan and his wife, the lady whose death was announced last week and Walter Cowan and wife, both long since dead. They all took up land at once, Mr. Barrie the homestead now occupied by the youngest of his children, Mr. Alexander Barrie; James Cowan the homestead now occupied by Mr. Thos. Cowan; and Walter Cowan the homestead now occupied by Mr. Wm. Cowan. For a time, while a house was being built on his land, Mr. Barrie occupied a house on the top of "Dickson's" hill, but as soon as ever his own house was read the family moved into it and there laid the foundation by industry of the fine properties now owned by the sons, Mr. Robert Barrie, now retired and living in Galt; Mr. Walter Barrie, residing near Ayr; Mr. John Barrie, residing on the farm just north of the homestead; and Mr. George Barrie, residing on the farm almost adjoining to the west, and the homestead now occupied by Mr. Alexander Barrie. The father, Mr. George Barrie, died in 1863. Himself and wife the descendants of the sturdy Scottish race who made Scotland revered, they have left behind them a family which is a household word in this section, for besides the sons enumerated there are yet living three daughters, viz, Mrs. Hugh Morton, now residing with her husband in Galt; Mrs. John Cavers, of North Dumfries; and Mrs. Thos. Dalgleish, of Galt. For convenience in attending church - Mrs. Barrie was a prominent member of Knox Church - she came about a year ago to reside with Mrs. Dalgleish, in Galt. A little more than ten days ago the deceased lady was attacked with inflammation of the bowels; and although at times it appeared as if she might throw off the attack her strength became so much reduced that, after severe suffering, she gently closed her eyes to this world at the hour mentioned on Tuesday. Mrs. Barrie was in the 92nd year of her age, was a woman of strong Christian affections, and in the early days of Dumfries took a leading part in all that fell to the lot of a pioneer's wife.2a

30242 ROBERT TURNBULL

1826-1879 Married: Elizabeth Graham

Robert Turnbull was born in Hawick, Scotland and came to Galt in 1852 at the age of 26 with his uncle Adam Ker. Mr. Turnbull had served an apprenticeship in Scotland in the textile trade with Messers. William Watson and Sons as a cloth finisher. Sometime after his arrival in Galt he learned the art of woollen manufacturing while in the employ of Robinson & Howell Co. in the Galt Woollen Mill building on Water Street South. In 1859 he started a business knitting woollen underwear. In the days before central heating, long woollen underwear was greatly appreciated and Mr. Turnbull found a ready market for his product. The business operated from the rear of the Turnbull home, a big rambling rough cast house located on West Main St., later Grand Ave., near the corner of St. Andrews St. Little is known about the very first years of the business and there is some confusion in the historical record. Some of it suggests that John Deans was Mr. Turnbull's partner from the start of the business in 1859. Other sources suggest that in the early years Mr. Turnbull was associated with Adam Oliver at least until 1861. It is also suggested that shortly thereafter Mr. Oliver sold his interest in the company to Mr. Turnbull and then John Deans became a partner in the business. In any case, the business operated as Turnbull and Deans until 1870 when Mr. Deans retired and sold his interest to Mr. Turnbull. In the early years all the garments were knitted on hand knitting frames and were hand finished by neighbourhood women in their homes. In 1861 Mr. Turnbull to send to Hawick for a type of knitting machine new to North America. With these machines, Turnbull and Deans became the first and only manufacturer of full-fashioned underwear on the continent. It was this product that made the name famous throughout the province and then throughout Canada. Until the business was sold to the Stauffer-Dobbie interests in 1946, Turnbull's was the only company in North America to have full-fashioned underwear knitting machines. What made this underwear special was it's comfortable fit, its durability and its softness. Other types of underwear on the market at the time were of the "knit and cut" variety. The underwear was first knit in long tubes and as the tubing came from the knitting machines it was cut into body lengths. To these were added sleeves, legs and whatever else was necessary to make the finished product. This method produced an acceptable but somewhat ill-fitting garment. Full-fashioned underwear was shaped on the machine to fit the human body. It was narrowed at the waist and made wider to accommodate the chest. This was a much slower method of production and as a consequence this type of underwear was more expensive than the "knit and cut" variety but it fit and wore better and proved popular throughout the country. It was marketed under the brand name "CEETEE". Mr. Turnbull died on December 11, 1879 at the age of fifty-two. He is buried in Mount View Cemetery.

Published: May 10, 2002 New York Times

William Tutte, a theoretical mathematician who contributed substantially to breaking codes in World War II, died on May 2 in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario. He was 84.

The cause was congestive heart failure complicated by cancer of the spleen, the University of Waterloo announced. He was distinguished professor emeritus of combinatorics and optimization and honorary director of the university's Center for Cryptographic Research.

A chemistry graduate student at Cambridge in 1941, young Mr. Tutte was sent to the now-fabled Bletchley Park, where a secret code-breaking operation had been set up. There, applying solely his mind and logic, he deciphered a key part of the German military code that others, equipped with a model of the German Enigma encrypting machine, had failed to break.

After settling in Canada, he went to the fledgling University of Waterloo in 1962 and helped build its faculty of mathematics into a magnet for theoreticians and students alike. He became a leader in the evolution of combinatorics, the science of counting separate objects, which he first broached in his doctoral thesis more than 50 years ago.

William Tutte (pronounced tut) was born in Newmarket, Suffolk, near Cambridge. At Cambridge, he and several friends tackled a seemingly straightforward geometry problem: dividing a square into smaller squares. It is trivial to cut a square into four smaller, identical squares. But mathematicians had not figured out whether it was possible to cut a square into smaller squares where no two were the same size.

The Cambridge students not only showed that it is possible, but they also came up with an ingenious solution: they showed that the problem was equivalent to calculating the electrical resistance in a network of circuits. Throughout his career, he was able to perceive subtle connections that others might not even have thought to look for.

"He looks at it in a way which is totally more fundamental than you can imagine," said Dr. Daniel Younger, a professor of mathematics at the University of Waterloo.

His problem-solving ability was key to his code-breaking success.

When he joined the Enigma code-breakers, they had succeeded in reading the communications of the German Navy and Air Force. But the army version proved more elusive, particularly the machine-cipher FISH, used only by the army high command.

The code-breakers had one crucial piece of data. A German radio operator had sent the same message of about 4,000 letters twice, with only a few changes. That produces two long strands of gibberish, but gibberish that looked tantalizingly similar.

Examining them for four months, Mr. Tutte saw patterns in the seemingly random string of characters. One of the components of the message encoder, he deduced, was a wheel with exactly 41 sprockets. He also deduced that the first wheel was connected to a second wheel of 31 sprockets.

Together with other code-breakers, he figured out the structure of all 12 wheels of the encoding machine, without ever seeing the original German device.

Last October, when he was inducted as an Officer of the Order of Canada in Ottawa, the citation hailed that as "one of the greatest intellectual feats of World War II."

He returned to Cambridge and, switching to mathematics, received his doctorate in 1948. His thesis mixed combinatorics with the more abstract field of algebra and spun them into a new field of study called matroid theory.

Immediately after graduation, he began teaching at the University of Toronto, then moved to Waterloo, about 60 miles from Toronto.

One practical reason for the interest in combinatorics was the graph theory, in which graphs can serve as abstract models for many different kinds of relations among sets of varying objects. A simple example of graph theory is the four-color map problem, or determining how many colors are needed to color in the countries on a map so that no two countries of the same color touch. With the development of computer technology, graph theory has found uses in chemistry, physics, demographics, economics and other fields.

When mathematicians finally definitively proved in the 1970's that four colors are enough for any map to avoid two touching colors, they used methods pioneered by Dr. Tutte and another mathematician, Hassler Whitney.

"He was the leading mathematician in combinatorics for three decades," Dr. Younger said.

Dr. Tutte was editor in chief of The Journal of Combinatorial Theory in its early years and was on the editorial boards of several other research journals. He was a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and the Royal Society of London.

He left no immediate survivors. His wife, Dorothea, died in 1994.

WATERLOO \emdash The University of Waterloo is honouring a pre-eminent mathematician and wartime code-breaker, naming the street that runs between its math buildings after William Tutte.

The British-born Tutte's work at Bletchley Park, Britain's top-secret code-breaking organization, helped changed the course of the Second World War and has been called "the greatest intellectual feat" of the war.

But Tutte, a brilliant mathematician who helped establish the reputation of the university's mathematics faculty, was sworn to secrecy about his wartime work, which only came to light in the late 1990s, when he was 80.

After the war, Tutte became a professor at the University of Toronto, then moved to the fledgling University of Waterloo in 1962. As a star in his field, he was able to attract some of the brightest minds to Waterloo and its faculty of mathematics, where he was a professor in the Combinatorics and Optimization Department for more than 30 years. He was named an officer of the Order of Canada in 2001.

"It's only being recognized now that his contributions were probably greater than any other code breaker" at Bletchley Park, said Daniel Younger, a professor emeritus in the university's math department who was Tutte's longtime friend.

Tutte came to Bletchley Park in 1941. Unlike the better-known decoders of the famous Enigma machine, Tutte did not have a machine to work with. Instead, using only samples of coded messages, he managed to deduce the machine that could produce such messages, how such a machine would work and what it would look like.

He then went on to describe how to crack the codes the machine produced, developing algorithms so complex that Bletchley engineers built Colossus, widely considered to be the first electronic computer, to execute Tutte's algorithms.

Cracking the Lorenz code helped changed the course of the war because the Lorenz machine was the one Hitler used to send messages to his top generals in the field. Tutte's work helped turn the Battle of Kursk, powered the D-Day landings and likely shortened the Second World War.

The naming ceremony takes place Friday as part of events to mark the 50th anniversary of the Faculty of Mathematics, and coincides with what would have been Tutte's 100th birthday this Sunday.

The ceremony begins at 11 a.m. at the David Centre with a talk by Younger about Tutte's many achievements and his contributions to mathematics, followed by the sign ceremony at noon and a screening at 1 p.m. of the 2011 BBC documentary, "Code-Breakers: Bletchley Park's Lost Heroes" about Tutte and his Bletchley colleague Tommy Flowers, who developed the Colossus computer.

30267 William Twaits was born in Galt where he excelled in various athletic activities. Playing for his native town in the early 1900s he acquired fame as one of hockey's outstanding players. This was in the era of seven man hockey with little or no substitutes. Stamina, speed and skill was a definite essential to compete with top teams including Berlin, Toronto and others.

Twaits captained and played cover point for Galt in the Dominion finals in 1903. He later played with Berlin and records indicate that he was one of the first Canadians offered a professional contract by an American team. He also starred on the Galt Football team which won a World Championship at St. Louis World Fair in 1905.

Twaits died in Sarnia in 1939. For many years he enjoyed a most successful business career in one of that city's larger industries.1a

30272 Daniel Tye, born in Suffolk, England, obtained 300 acres of land in Wilmot Township in 1837. After clearing five acres, he moved to Long Island, New York. His family joined him there while he managed a farm for one year. In 1839 they went to Haysville, Waterloo County in a covered wagon, arriving in 1840.

He was one of the first importers of Devon cattle, Southdown sheep and Essex hogs. He was also the first exhibitor from Wilmot at the Provincial Exhibitions, securing prizes for his Devons at London, Cobourg, Brantford and Kingston.

Tye was elected second vice-president of the Waterloo Agricultural Society when it was organized in 1852 and was a delegate to the annual meeting of the Upper Canada Agricultural Board at Cobourg in 1855.

He was an active supporter of St. James Anglican Church, Huron Road, built in 1842, interested in public affairs and was a strong Conservative.1a

__________________

The funeral of the late H. D. Tye last Saturday afternoon was largely attended: Among these from a distance we noticed Mr. Isaac Master, Registrar, Berlin; Messrs; Hughes, Killer and Snyder, Waterloo; A. S. Smith, Port Sydney, Mus; E. S. Smith and Mrs. H. M. Johnson, Stratford; Mrs. Osborne and Mr. Puddicombe, London. As promised last week we will try to give a short sketch of the life of our late friend and neighbor. Born and educated in England he came to America with his parents at the age of fourteen and after living on Long Island, N.Y., two years. In the fall of 1839, the family left there for Canada. There was no railroad and the route mostly taken was by boat to Albany on the Hudson River and then by canal to Oswego, or in some cases families would get a large covered wagon and drive from Albany to Oswego. Such was the way taken in this case and the subject of this memory drove the team to Oswego and after crossing the lake by steamboat to Queenston drove to Hamilton, where the family stayed most of the winter. Fifty-two years ago this month he came to Wilmot and settled on the farm which was all bush, now owned by Mr. C. D. Brown. Being the oldest boy in the family and his father not used to work and being large for his age he had all the heavy work to do and helped to chop and log up most of the farm. Soon after coming of age he engaged as a clerk in his brother-in-laws store in Haysville, the late S. Sidney Smith. After being in the store for a few years and being a good deal interested in fruit, he started a nursery which he carried on for a good many years and a good many orchards to the north of this were planted from his nursery. But finding the soil too heavy to make tree growing profitable on account of the young trees being raised by the frost and the mice spoiling so many, he gave it up and purchased the farm upon which he resided up to the time of his death, from the late Dr. McGeorge of Ayr. In 1858 he was elected Councillor and two years later Deputy Reeve; he served the Township four years in that office and eight years as Reeve and then resigned in favor of the late Chr. Zoeger. Up to the time of Confederation he had been on the Conservative side in politics. At that time the Hon. Jas. Young came out in opposition to Mr. James Cowan and Mr. Tye canvassed this Township in favor of Mr. Young with good success, who was elected by a large majority. At the general election in 1875 Mr. Tye was nominated by the Reform convention and canvassed the Riding up to the time of nomination. Mr. Samuel Merner had been brought out against him, as that gentleman thought he ought to have received the nomination at the convention and said if Mr. J. Fleming of Galt had received the nomination he would not have come out, but as it was he did not consider Mr. Tye was on the Reform side long enough. As Mr. Tye was driving to the nomination he said to his friend John Hayse and the writer of this who was driving them, that if Mr. Merner would resign he would and let Mr. Fleming be elected rather than split the Reform vote and that was how Mr. Fleming was elected. In whatever position Mr. Tye was placed his executive ability was soon acknowledged. Whether as School Trustee or Warden of this county he devoted his time and talent for the public good. He has been a director of the Waterloo Fire Insurance Co. for a number of years, also secretary for the Nith Valley Creamery Co. His place will be hard to fill, for if he undertook to do anything it was done right. In the year 1858 Mr. Tye was married to Mary, eldest daughter of the late Wm. Puddicombe, who still survives him and seven children (3 boys and 4 girls) The eldest, William, is mail clerk on the train and resides at Goderich. The second daughter Francis is married to Mr. Henry Walker living near Haysville and the others, the youngest being only 12 years old, reside at home. The wife has lost a loving husband, the children a kind and affectionate father and the neighbors mourn the loss of a neighbor who was always willing to help them in any way in his power. Miss Marion Tye, who has been visiting relations in New Jersey near New York, was telegraphed for on Wednesday the 10th inst., but did not arrive home until after her father's death.

30278 Give us your rapt attention
Oh maidens fancy free,
Here are the Leap Year Chances
That will make your sorrows free.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Norman Kocher is still with us
And he is going to stay,
So if some girl proposes,
I'm sure that it will pay.

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

So all you girls in Haysville,
Who chance to this rhyme
The "Bachelors" of the neighbourhood
Await you to name the time.

Now show them you can do it,
The way is surely clear,
Pick out "your man" and bear in mind
It's a long time till next leap year
.1a

Bridgeport Free Church


Land on the Bloomingdale Road was donated on November 16, 1848 by John U. Tyson for a free cemetery and free church, to be available for the use of any denomination. The first German Baptist congregation in Canada was organized here on September 10, 1851 by the Rev. August Rauschenbusch. (This 16-member congregation was the forerunner of Benton Street Baptist Church in Berlin/Kitchener.) The first pastor was Rev. Henry Schneider who was ordained to the Baptist Ministry on November 12, 1852.

Regular Sunday services in the Free Church were discontinued c.1955. The community then assumed responsiblity for the maintenance of the building which was donated to the Boy Scouts for their use. The Scouts continued to meet in it until 1968 when the front entrance was damaged by fire. The church was repaired and some renovations also were accomplished at the same time through the generosity of the Bridgeport Women's Institute. The building, which is designated as a Heritage Landmark of the City of Kitchener, has a plaque on the front wall of the church which reads: FREE CHURCH ERECTED 1848.2a

30313 Tyson, "Of the many Dutch Non-conformists families coming to America during the Colonial times, the Tysons were the earliest and most prominent. We find that one Reynier Tyson with twelve other men and families, a company comprising thirty-three persons, came across the sea and settled at Germantown, Pennsylvania, in 1692, if not earlier. This Tyson must have been a prominent member among these early settlers as we find his signature, together with others, on a certain certificate of complaint against one by name of Keith, issued at a general or quarterly meeting held at Philadelphia, 1692 or 1693, and this certificate was taken to London, England in 1693 by one Samuel Jennings who presented it before and annual meeting there. Then again we find that in 1703 one by the name of Cornelius Tyson came from Crefeld, Germany, and settled at Germantown, Pennsylvania. This Tyson died May 9th, 1716, and his body was interred in Axe's Graveyard, Germantown, where an intimate friend of his, by name of Pastorius had erected on his grave a tombstone. It bears the following inscription in Dutch:

Obijt Meiy 9. 1716. Died May 9th, 1716.
Cornelius Tiesen. Cornelius Tyson.
Salic sin de doon Blessed are the dead
Die in den Here sterve Who die in the Lord,
Theibric is haer Kron. Numerous is their Crown,
Tgloriric haer evve. Glorious is their reward.

All the Tysons in Pennsylvania and other states and even in Canada are descendants of the two named Tysons, but to give a full history of all the descendants of these two parties is impossible at so late a date. We have the names of five ("These five were all of one family") who were probably grandchildren of one of the old pioneers. Their names are as follows:"1a

30325 Jacob Uffelman was born in Waterloo in 1860. At age 15 he apprenticed himself for four years to Theodore Bellinger who operated the Corner Store. Upon completion of his apprenticeship, Uffelman was employed with John Shuh and Company for five years. He left this company to go into business for himself in Breslau where he ran a general store for three years before selling out and moving to Elmira where he remained for four years.

In 1891 Uffelman purchased the store and stock of his former employer John Shuh and Company, and ten years later acquired the Ontario Seed Company. He turned his attention to the sauerkraut business in the 1920s, forming the Silverthreads Sauerkraut Company with buyers across the country.

In the 1895 election, Uffelman was first elected to town council. He again became an alderman in the 1902 and 1903 elections. As mayor in 1904, Uffelman led council in its decision to raise money to encourage the construction of a railway line from Waterloo to Wellesley. The following year, Uffelman oversaw the official opening of the Waterloo Public Library.

Following his term as mayor, Uffelman was appointed a justice of the peace.1a

30328 The revolution in Baden broke ou't actively in the latter part of 1848, and continued until toward the end of 1849. One of the main leaders was Carl Hecker, supported by Strube and Brentano, members of the diet. The Grand-duke Leopold fled to Prussia and secured the help of Prince William, grand-father of the present Kaiser, who at the head of a Prussian force invaded Baden in 1849, and defeated the insurgents. It may be interest ing to state here that with the Prussians were Hesse and Nassau soldiers, among whom were John Ulner, who lived here and worked for me in Wellesley for almost half a century and the late Christian Meisner of Kitchener. Hecker, after one of his sharp shooters had killed the Prussian general, during a parley, escaped to Switzerland and from there emigrated to Illinois where he died some years ago. I drilled on the side of the republicans under Hecker in 1849, but was not in any of the engagements.1a

30329 Don Cale Retires
Drug store's 54-year history comes to end

by Shirley Crane

The closing of Cale's Rexall Drugs this past weekend marked another milestone on Arthur Street for the business had been established fifty-four years ago and progressed through many changes. The original owner of the store was Arthur A. Ullyot, son of a former Elmira physician, Henry Ullyot. Arthur graduated as a pharmacist in 1903 from the University of Toronto. He served his apprenticeship with George Bingham, a Toronto pharmacist whose store stood at 100 Yonge street. Bingham's store had the original soda fountain and ice cream business. Young Arthur Ullyot made soda and became very knowledgeable about soda fountains. He began to sell soda fountains for J. J. McLaughlin who became the head of Canada Dry (J. J. McLaughlin was a brother to Sam who founded the McLaughlin automotive business in Oshawa.) Arthur Ullyot was later involved in several businesses in Elmira, Trenton, Toronto and other locations, before he decided to return to Elmira in 1921 and resume his profession of pharmacy. A year earlier he had purchased the original fixtures from Bingham's drug store, and it was Don Cale who cleaned off these fixtures and polished the beautiful mahogany. Don's mother, Lily May, was a sister to Arthur Ullyott. She had married and was living in British Columbia when she died in 1922. Don came to live with his aunt and uncle in Elmira. He went to school here, worked in his uncle's store and graduated as a pharmacist from the University of Toronto in 1932. His apprenticeship had been served with his uncle, and he also spent a year with Liggett's in Toronto. Don worked for ten dollars a week and board, until his uncle died in 1934. He and his aunt then ran the business as a partnership. In 1950 he bought out his aunt. Several years later the decision was made to change the name of the business to Cale's. It was shortly after that his aunt died. The original store had been located where Dreisinger's funeral chapel now stands. [In 2010, Shoppers Drug Mart is at the location: 7/9 Arthur Street North.] The front of that store was moved and is now the front of the Elmira Music Centre on Church street east. The business was moved to its present location in 1940. [In 2010, approximately 27 Arthur Street South: Read's Decorating Centre.] For many years the drug store was also the only stationery store in town. Don handled text books, note books, refills, inks, and all kinds of writing papers. That part of the business was given up when a stationery and book store was established in town, but Don never got around to removing the word "stationery" from the store's sign and logo. In 1937, Don married Kathryn Hamacher of Waterloo. They had three children, Julia, now Mrs. Robert Morton of North Bay, Gordon of Chetwynd, B.C. and Thomas, of Douglas Point. Don has a grandson and two granddaughters, Julia's children. Don had been giving considerable thought to retirement, but a serious illness last month made the decision promptly for him. The huge desk where Don wrote up drug store business for so many years has been moved to the hall in his large old home on Arthur street south. He needs it there for there are still some details to be finished after closing his business. The prescription files have been sold to Cook's Pharmacy who also bought those lovely, antique mahogany fixtures.1a

No Ghosts: History of the Wachsmuth Block / Dreisinger Building,
7 Arthur Street North, Elmira

by Marion Roes

Published in the Waterloo Historical Society Volume 91 - 2003, pp. 20-29 .

Excerpts printed with permission from the author
.

The building was sold and demolished early in 2008. Shoppers Drug Mart built a new store on the corner which opened in October 2008.

William Wachsmuth was an early Elmira entrepreneur. He arrived in 1860, built a small frame building on the corner of Church and Arthur Streets, opened a shoe shop, then added a grocery. Some years later, he was able to build a large, square, two-storey yellow brick "block" with a warehouse on the back.

Divided into three sections, the Wachsmuth block housed many businesses before 1906 when Christian Dreisinger moved his undertaking business into the center section of the building. Some of those businesses were: Wachsmuth Printing, the Traders Bank, Miss Edmund's millinery shop, Weichel Hardware, City Shoe Store (owned appropriately by Mr. Schumaker), Massey Harris Co. Of Toronto, Ford and Liesemer Farm Implements, Otto Wachsmuth's boot and shoe business (which advertised McPherson's Lightening Hitch Hockey Shoe).

Dreisinger added retail furniture later in 1906 and by 1912 more space was needed. The warehouse came down and a large two-storey addition with a second entrance on Church Street went up. So that furniture could be moved to and from the new display area on the second floor, a manual pulley elevator was installed.

When Pentland's Millinery's lease ended in 1921, C. Dreisinger Furniture and Undertaking expanded into that north section and combined the two entrances into one. The local newspaper noted that the upstairs, previously set apart for furniture, would be the casket department of the undertaking business. In the same year the Royal Bank, which had merged with the Traders Bank in 1912, moved across the street.

Arthur Ullyot, druggist from Toronto leased the corner section and changed the windows and entrance. Freddie Miller, owner of the electrical business across the street on Church Street, installed a motor for the manual elevator.

Funeral practises were changing. During the early 1930s people started asking for funerals to be carried out at parlors instead of in their homes. No longer was the deceased's body prepared at home, or visitations held there. Except for wintertime, cars had replaced horse-drawn hearses. A 1937 fire map shows a garage added to the rear of the building with room for hearses and cars for two complete funerals.

Then, in 1940, Ullyot's Rexall Drug Store moved down the street and that corner section became a funeral chapel, reportedly the first in the district. Renovations to the rest of the building included a properly appointed morgue, visitation rooms and casket showroom. In the basement were a radio repair shop and the building's air conditioning and automatic heating systems.

Another use for the elevator shaft was drying the 12 x 15 foot tent which sheltered mourners at graveside services. After a rain it was a struggle, standing on the main floor to push the heavy wet canvas with a pole to the second floor so the rings on the top hooked onto the top of the elevator shaft. It took at least 36 hours for the tent to dry, hanging three stories through the open top of the elevator stationed in the basement.

In 1977 the furniture and funeral businesses were separated. Dreisinger Funeral Home moved to 62 Arthur Street South and with it went the pews, stained glass windows and the Hammond electric organ. Furniture displays expanded to new space opened when visitation and preparation rooms were removed.

"Are there ghosts?" people often asked. Ghost stories are usually about how a person dies. People had already died when they were brought here. So no, no ghosts!3a

30331 CLOSE OF AN ACTIVE CAREER
DR. H. ULLYOT, OF ELMIRA WAS ONE OF WATERLOO COUNTY'S OLDEST PRACTICIONERS - FUNERAL TOOK PLACE TO-DAY.

The funeral of the late Dr. H. Ullyot, who died at his home in Elmira on Wednesday morning, took place this afternoon. A large number of Berlinites were among those who attended. The deceased had passed the prime of his life, but was nevertheless actively engaged in his profession, and who for aught man knew, had before him the prospect of a number of years of useful life. Deceased was born in England in the year 1845. When 5 years of age he emigrated to Canada. He commenced practice thirty years ago; when four years in practice he removed to Hawkesville where he enjoyed the confidence of many patients during the eight years of his residence. Thence he removed to Elmira, where at the time of his death on Wednesday morning, at a result of a severe attack of pleuro-pneumonia, he had just entered upon his twenty-sixth year of practice, and where he held the esteem of all who knew him. He was a man of refined manners and gentlemanly bearing throughout, was known for his straightforwardness and integrity, had the courage of his convictions and lived a life compatible with the christianity which he professed as a member of the Methodist church. Dr. Ullyot took a keen interest in public and educational affairs, was in his time a member of the Board of Trustees of the Berlin High School, chairman of the Elmira School Board, member of the Railway Committee and Board of Trade. Although repeatedly nominated for municipal honors, he declined to stand until a few years ago, when he sought admission into the County Council, but was unsuccessful. He was a ready speaker, who, when he took the platform, was intently heard, his remarks being marked by a carefulness and conservatism that indicated mature consideration. He enjoyed a remunerative medical practice and will be greatly missed by his numerous patients as well as by his fellow citizens in general. He was thrice married. His first wife, a daughter of Dr. Kay, of Farquahar, left him three sons and three daughters, viz.: George, of Yorkton, Assa; Mary (Mrs. Alba Cavanagh) and Henry, of California; Arthur of Toronto; Lily (Mrs. Cale) of Stratford, and Francis who died at Elmira in early womanhood. His second wife, a former Miss Edgar, of Stratford, departed this life several years ago, and deceased was again married to a Miss Snider of Norwich, who survives him, and who together with the other members of the family, has the sympathy of a large circle of friends in the loss of a kind and considerate husband and an affectionate father. Deceased had reached the age of 60 years, 9 months and 17 days.1a

....the wife of Mr. Henry Wittich had breathed her last...Over a month ago deceased had the misfortune to choke on a piece of meat which became lodged in her wind-pipe, threatening immediate suffocation. Dr. Ullyot was called in and managed to remove the obstacle to an extent to make breathing easier. However, inflammation set in, and in spite of all that medical aid could offer, she gradually sank until death relieved her intense suffering, last Sunday. Deceased was 38 years of age, and leaves a sorrowing husband and four daughters, aged from 2 to 14. Funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon....4a

30334 Revolting Case - To the Editor of the Hamburg Volksblatt
For the sake of morality I consider myself, as an eye-witness, bound to draw the attention to an individual who resides in New Hamburg, and is called Jacob Kloss (or "the Hamburg Bull.") He is a saddler by trade, father of a large family, and already advanced in years; he is, as much as I know, not given to drinking, but several times already he has been surprised when he tried to violate girls from 7 to 14 years of age. Till now, strange to say, he got off only with a thrashing by the parents of the children, and has not been brought before the court to get the legal punishment as no person appeared as plaintiff against him.

Sunday, the 11th inst., this monster rambled about Wilby from morning till afternoon, and at the time when the adult persons had left the place to go to church, watched for little girls, and tried to mislead them to remote places, in order to commit infamous actions on their persons. An unfortunate girl, Elizabeth Ullner, 14 years of age, residing near Wilby, let herself be misled by this rascal, and went with him into the bush, and as I observed both unseen, I followed them and surprised them in acts of bareness which cannot be publicly described. I gave this beast of a man a sound thrashing, and think it my duty to publish this horrible occurrence in the newspapers. - Daniel Lohr - Wilby, September 12, 1859

30353 Forced to fight, he died on the war's final day By Jeff Outhit

Clayton Elmer Underwood played baseball for a championship team. Then his country sent him into combat.

He helped chase the enemy out of France, only to die on Nov. 11, 1918, the day the First World War ended.

Did he learn of victory before his wounds killed him? We can only speculate. But we do know this: Clayton was the last local soldier to die while the Great War still raged.

Canada conscripted him into the infantry after running out of volunteers. Thus compelled, he did his duty.

Hallman Meeting House

It is not known just when the first log meeting house of the Hallman congregation was built. However, on June 1, 1847 a one-acre plot of land, for a meeting house and burial ground, was deeded from Adam Unger to trustee, Jacob H. Detweiler. This land was east of Roseville on the northwest corner of Lot 31, Concession 11 of North Dumfries Township, and on the south side of the Blenheim or Roseville Road, which was built westerly from Galt. A stone cairn made up of old tombstones stands on this property today.
A new brick church, called Hallman Mennonite Church, was constructed in 1854 (Burkholder 1935:104) or 1856 (Taylor 1970:282) on land on the north side of the road, just west of the old meeting house. The congregation is reported to have disbanded in 1891. The property was sold soon after.2a

Roseville United Brethren in Christ Church

Although early meetings are reported to have begun in the Roseville area as early as 1860, it was not until 1881 that Rev. George Backus of New Dundee came to the area to conduct regular services in Roseville homes on Sunday evenings. The first services were held in the home of Mrs. Jacob Bricker; there were seven charter members in the group. Shortly after this time, c.1884, the present church building, which was originally of frame and dates to 1852 when it belonged to a Lutheran Congregation, was bought from the Wesleyan Methodists who had acquired it earlier from the Lutherans. The first United Brethren in Christ pastors after Rev. Backus were Revs. David B. Sherk and Jacob. B. Bowman. The congregation remained on a circuit until 1969 when the connection ended with New Dundee and Roseville became independent. A parsonage was purchased in 1971 and on September 9, 1973 a sod-breaking ceremony was held for the Christian Education addition. Dedication services were held on October 6, 1974.
A split in the United Brethren in Christ in 1889 resulted in two groups calling themselves by that name. One group joined the Congregationals in 1906. The other group remained United Brethren in Christ until November 16, 1946 when most congregations of the United Brethen in Christ organization joined with the Evangelical Church to form the Evangelical United Brethren Church - later to join with the United Church on January 1, 1968. This congregation is one of three United Brethren in Christ Churches in Waterloo County today. The others are Stanley Park in Kitchener, and New Dundee. The headquarters of the church is in Huntington, Indiana.
Although the building was originally of frame construction, remodelling and renovations have resulted in the church building of today.2a

Dies in Church

The fourth sudden Death in Berlin since New Year's

The widow Magdalena Wagner died a sudden death on Sunday morning in St. Paul's Lutheran Church here. The elderly lady had not been healthy for a long time, but decided to go to church again because of the lovely weather. It was her last walk. She had scarcely sat down in the church, when she suddenly collapsed, and had to be carried into the sacristy, helpless. Dr. G.H. Bowlby was summoned, but he discovered that death had already occurred, as a result of a heart attack. The body was transported by ambulance to the residence of the deceased on Wellington Street. Burial took place on Wednesday in Floradale after a funeral service at 9 a.m. in St. Paul's Church here. The deceased was born near Strassburg in 1836, married Heinrich Wager in 1856 (he died five years ago). They settled in Floradale, and approximately a year ago, she came to Berlin. Six children survive the deceased, namely - John, in Grafton, N.D.; Heinrich and Mrs. C.H. Miff in Berlin; Mrs. C.H. Heimbach in Ayr; Mrs. R. Tanner in Guelph; and Mrs. G. Lackner in Floradale. This is the fourth sudden death in Berlin since New Year's. The three previous ones were: the teacher, Miss Woods; Heinrich Knell, Jr.; and George Wettlaufer.3a

INJURIES CAUSED BY AUTO FATAL TO 88 YEAR OLD MAN

Moses Unger Succumbs Few Hours After Being Struck By Motor Car; Driver Absolved Of Blame

Moses Unger, 134 Church street, died last evening at his home on Church street of injuries and shock received when he was struck down at 2.40 yesterday afternoon on King street by a car driven by Roy Burns, 4 Grand street, Guelph. The deceased was in his 85th year. Mr. Unger's eyesight was poor and he was proceeding across King street near Norton's store when the accident occurred. The car was travelling along King street towards Galt when the aged man was struck. Eye witnesses of the accident state that the driver of the car was not to blame for the accident as he was driving very slowly when he hit Unger. The unfortunate man apparently did not see the approaching machine and stepped directly into its path. He sustained a bad gash on the forehead and other bruises and a bad shaking up. His advanced years and the injuries sustained are said to have caused his death. It is not likely that the driver of the death dealing car will be held and an inquest is unlikely. Following the accident Dr. A. Oaks attended the injured man. The late Mr. Unger has lived in Preston for many years and was a well known figure. He was one of the town's oldest men and easily recalled many early happenings of the district with great vividness. He had been living retired for many years at his home on Church street with his wife, who is now 86 years of age. At one time he was the government fruit inspector here. He is survived by his wife and two sons, John Unger, of Plum Coulee, Man. and Joseph Unger, of California: also ten daughters, Mrs. Ellen Rickert, at Kitchener; Mrs. Aaron Hilborn, of Galt; Mrs. C. G. Ott and Mrs. Hannah Rickert, of Buffalo; Mrs. W. Hurst, of Winnipeg: Mrs, H. R. James, of Vancouver; Mrs. W. Ford, Beattie, Wash.; Mrs. James Thomas, of Preston; Miss V. Unger, Toronto and Mrs. T. F. Wilkins, Chesley. The funeral will be held at 3.30 Thursday afternoon from the United church and interment will take place in the Hagey cemetery.

30423 Among the most prominent settlers who came here about 1832 were Adam Ferrie, Jr., and Samuel Liebschuetz; the former a Scotchman and youngest son of the Hon. Adam Ferrie, of Montreal, then head of a large wholesale house; the latter was a shrewd German Jew. Both started a store here and both did a thriving business. Mr. Adam Ferrie, Junior, commenced in the dwelling house of Jacob Roos, cooper, but soon built a new store and a large warehouse, at present owned by our worthy ex-Reeve Mr. William Schlueter, who converted the warehouse into that well known establishment called "Business Corner," Mr. Liebschuetz erected the store now owned and occupied by Mr. Uttick the tobacconist. Mr. Liebschuetz's business increasing rapidly, he built another store combined with a tavern; but not finding sufficient room in Preston for his energies and ambition, he traded his property in Preston against a mill property, now known as German Mills, but for many years known as Jewsburg, so named after its founder who was a Jew. This was the first grist-mill that was bought and enlarged with money earned in Preston. Liebschuetz by reason of some criminal act, as was supposed, fled the country and never returned. 1a

30428 After a lingering and painful battle with rheumatism in its worst form, Mr. James Uttley, son of Mr. Johnathan [sp] Uttley, passed over to the great majority last Tuesday at noon. Having been a sufferer for years, many of the pleasures participated in by young people of his age, were denied him. Entertaining very little hope of recovery, he, nevertheless, kept himself up remarkably well; bore his cross in patience and endeavored to make himself useful. His familiar countenance will be missed by his many sympathizing friends. He had reached the age of 31 years.

On worldly pleasures we well may frown
If the end but brings for the cross a crown.
Though hard to submit, we can forfeit the ease
Of the world, if the end is "Eternal Peace." 1a

30429 An Elmira Business Man's Death

Mr. Jonathan Uttley, a prominent business man of Elmira, died this morning at 4.30 o'clock, after a long illness, at the age of 66 years and 20 days. The deceased was one of the best known merchants in North Waterloo, having for the last eighteen or twenty years conducted a grocery, grain, pork and commission business in that village. For many years before the railway was extended to Elmira, he had pork and grain warehouses at Waterloo and was almost a daily visitor there and here. After passing through a number of vicissitudes such as are more or less common in the business world, he succeeded and has been well-to-do for quite a number of years and has built up a large business. As a business man he was a man of sterling honesty, straightforward and aggressive. To the many hundreds of farmers with whom he dealt constantly, his word was as good as his bond and they regarded him as a friend.

The village itself owes him not a little debt of gratitude for his enterprise and will no doubt pay a tribute of respect to his memory. He took a great interest in public affairs, both municipal and national, was an out and out Conservative and swore by the late Sir John A. Macdonald.
He leaves a widow and two daughters, Mrs. M. Wildfong and Miss Ellen, to mourn his death. His funeral will take place on Monday next at 1.30 p.m. to the Union Cemetery. He was an uncle to the editor of the RECORD.1a

30430 Jonathan was a great uncle of mine, a younger brother of my grandfather Abraham Uttley. He worked at Seagram's Distillery, never married and was a 'simple' man. I remember him being brought to my grandfather's house for family gatherings in the 1950s and I was told that he was brought from The Old Folks Home on Frederick Street (i.e. the House of Refuge). When he died in 1962 he was living at the new Sunnyside Home at 247 Franklin Avenue, the replacement for the Frederick Street building.

30433 WATERLOO NEWS NOTES

Which Came This Morning To Nathan Uttley Dropped Dead While At Work

A startlingly sudden death was that which came to Nathan Uttley this morning about 10 o'clock at the age of 71 years. Deceased was engaged as fireman at the woolen mills and had gone down to work as was his custom, very early about 5 o'clock taking his breakfast with him. An attack of rheumatism had incapacitated him for a few days last week, but otherwise he was in good health. While lifting a shovelful of coal he fell over. His assistant hurriedly called his son, who was about the mill. Together they carried him out, but he expired in a few minutes. Dr. Armitage was called in and he pronounced death due to heart failure. Deceased was a native of Norfolk, England, and had lived in Waterloo for the past 22 years, being employed at the woollen mills the whole of that period. He was a well known figure in town, respected by all who knew him, and a most faithful and efficient employee of his firm. He is survived by a widow and ten children. The latter are: William, of Zurich; Mrs. Cook of Port Huron; Abraham, of Oshawa; Peter and Diana, of Berlin; John and Nathan of Waterloo; and Jonathan, Carrie and Mary, at home. Deceased was twice married. The funeral will take place on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock to the Church of the Holy Saviour, Waterloo, and to Mount Hope Cemetery.1a

30434 SAMUEL UTTLEY HAS CROSSED THE DIVIDE

CALL CAME MONDAY AT DAY-BREAK

On Monday morning at 5:30 o'clock dissolution came to Samuel Uttley. Three weeks ago he suffered a slight stroke and grew gradually weaker. On Saturday and Sunday mornings he suffered additional attacks. Sunday afternoon he had brightened and conversed cheerfully with members of his family and friends. He realized that the sand in his hour glass was running low and had words of confort for all. The end came peacefully at daybreak Monday.
He had reached the advanced age of 83 years, 8 months and 13 days. He was born in 1837, near Norwich, in Norfolk County, England. His father was a shepherd on a large estate and three of his sons, Jonathan , Nathan and Samuel emigrated to Canada and located in Elmira.

Samuel came over when a youth of 17 years. An uncle, the late Mr. George Girling, had previously settled here. He came to their home and afterward was given employment by the late Mr. William Howlett. After learning to do farm work as practised in Canada, he engaged himself for some years to Mr. Wm. Wright near Guelph and to Mr. Hardy of Winterbourne.

In 1858 [actually four years later in 1862] he married Mary Baxter Taylor of Paisley Block, near Guelph, and they took residence in Elmira. For many years he was employed as stationary engineer by the firm of Winger and Weaver, who conducted a woolen and saw mill, which stood where now stands the Elmira Planing Mill. The late Henry Winger afterward purchased these and reengaged him. Some years later he was employed by Ratz and Winger, who then conducted a flour mill and sawmill, and continued there when the late John Ratz purchased and conducted that business. Among other later duties was the teaming of flour to Waterloo. Elmira had then no railway communication.

Having a family of six and being desirous of doing his utmost for them, he next undertook farming, first on Henry Winger's farm, on West Church street, and later at Yatton and Parker. After a number of years he decided to go to Doon and enter the employ of the M. B. Perine Co. There he remained until six years ago, when he returned to Elmira. Mrs. Uttley passed away while preparations were being made to move. He used to relate that his father, who had a family of a dozen, was anxious to see his children obtain some education. But in those days, public schools were unknown.

Families desiring to give their children a schooling had to engage and pay the teacher. His father asked the squire for whom he worked, to use his efforts to extend the benefits to families in humble circumstances. The old squire replied: "No! No! Give birds feathers and they'll fly." Samuel could neither read nor write when at seventeen he reached Elmira. Being ambitious he managed to learn to read at Sunday school and to write by studying in his spare hours in the evening. This acquirement seemed to him a valuable possession and made of him, in his modest way, a friend of education. Many were the sacrifices he made to give his children that which he was denied.

While he was rearing his brood, Canada was young and money was scarce. The topmost wage paid was $1 a day. One marvels how parents with a family of six managed to feed, clothe and educate them on this slender income. Indefatigable effort and self denial may furnish the explanation of how it was accomplished. He was during his long life credited with being an industrious man. Whomever he served he served to the best of his ability, and gave good measure. It is a tribute to his worth that he never in the dullest times lacked employment.
While working in Elmira it was one of his duties to measure the logs brought to the sawmill. He tried to do the square thing for both buyer and seller and the farmers called him "Honest Sam." This sobriquet pleased him greatly.

His has been a long and arduous life and he lived it cleanly and earnestly. His days were many and he liked to say were largely due to the intimate and friendly terms on which he and Work stood and to his having early adopted the habit of "early to bed and early to rise."
In the army of industry he never gained higher rank than that of full private. A more accurate description might be to place him in the list of men portrayed by Robbie Burns in his "Cotter's Saturday Night."

The immediate members of the family who survive him are: John of Big Valley, Alberta; Mrs. Harry Parr of Providence, R. I.; James of Kitchener; Miss Annie and Miss Edith and W. V. Uttley of Elmira.

He was on Wednesday afternoon laid to rest among his kith and kin in the old Elmira Cemetery. Rev. J. A. Jewitt officiated at the house and grave. The pallbearers were Messrs.: A. Jeanneret, W. W. Martinson, John Small, Wm. Bearens, Menno Wilfong and W. C. Quickfall.

Among the floral offerings contributed were a wreath of roses from the family; a spray of asters from Miss V. Cleghorn; a spray of gladioli from the Ladies' Aid of the Presbyterian church; a bouquet of gladioli from Mr. and Mrs. Louis Fischer; a bouquet of asters and ferns from Mr. and Mrs. L. Fulcher; a bouquet of daisies from Mr. and Mrs. John Schaefer; a bouquet of Cosmos and asters from Mr. and Mrs. A.Werner; a bouquet of clematis and daisies from Mr. and Mrs. John Small; a bouquet of asters from Mr. and Mrs. James Somerville and a bouquet of asters and daisies from Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Weichel.1a

____________________

In his eightieth year, William V. Uttley, passed away at his home in Elmira on Thursday evening, May 25th. Up until the past few months he had enjoyed very good health, but recently he began to fail, until his passing this week. For the past twenty-five years was a continuous resident of Elmira and he was a familiar figure about town as he enjoyed taking long walks daily when the weather was fine.

Born in Elmira, Jan. 1, 1865, he received his early education in Kitchener and went through as a school teacher and taught for three years at Doon. At this time he entered the newspaper business with the old Berlin Publishing Company and later was its editor. It was through his efforts and business administration The News-Record became a daily newspaper twenty-five years ago.

In 1919 he sold out his controlling interest in the News-Record and came to Elmira to live and on Dec. 1st, 1919 he purchased the Elmira Signet from George Klinck and became editor and proprietor of his home town newspaper. He retained the Signet only for a few years and sold out to Mr. Kester. Since that time he has lived retired.

He was an outstanding writer in his time and through all his years of retirement was intensely interested in newspaper work and development. His writing ability during retirement was chiefly directed to collecting historical data. He compiled and published a history of Kitchener which has been used as a reference book by many, tracing early historical events. An original member of the Waterloo Historical Society much credit can be given to the late Mr. Uttley for its present high standing and collection of historical data.

A Mason for fifty years, he was signally honoured the week previous to his death by being presented with a fifty-year membership jewel by members of the Grand Valley Lodge, Kitchener. A fitting ceremony had been planned by the lodge but due to Mr. Uttley's very poor health at the time, he was unable to attend.

The late Mr. Uttley was popularly known about Elmira as "Ben" and held in the highest esteem by a host of friends both young and old. While living to eighty years of age, he kept in close touch with world affairs and as well read on many subjects. Except for his hearing, he was in possession of all his faculties to the last. One fact might be mentioned which was a characteristic of the man was that his word once given in trust was strictly adhered to, as this seemed to be a very important side of his character. While engaged in newspaper work in Kitchener, he took an active interest in the city's welfare and served on the city council for a number of terms.

Those left to mourn their loss are his wife, formerly Sara Matthews of Doon; two daughters, Mrs. B.H. (Vera) Tanner, of Toronto and Mrs. Harry (Kathleen) Weichel of Elmira; one grandchild and two sisters, Miss A. Uttley of Kitchener and Mrs. Mary Parr of Detroit.

Funeral services were conducted from Dreisinger's Funeral Chapel on Monday afternoon with Rev. F. Malinsky of St. Paul's Lutheran Church officiating.

He was freed in 1795 and promoted to Lieutenant Commander in 1804. He married Agnes Ann Valentine youngest daughter of David Valentine and Mary Smith in 1809 at St. Pancras Old Church, London. Witness to the marriage was John Henderson Valentine, brother of Agnes Ann who was a banker in London. I don't have the date when he was promoted to Captain but it was before 1819 when he signed himself "Captain David Valentine", he was at that time in Montrose and apparently not well. He died May 2, 1820.1a

30446 Flash from the Past: Bridgeport Lofts site was a shoe factory

Some old buildings come down. Others are reinvented and put to ever more uses.

Last week's "mystery" photo isn't so old. It was snapped just over 10 years ago and shows the former Valentine and Martin Ltd. shoe plant at Bridgeport and Regina streets in Waterloo - today the Bridgeport Lofts apartments. ....Research by the late Ellis Little (for whom the Ellis Little Local History Room at the Waterloo Public Library is named) indicates construction of the building began in 1903 for a shoe factory a man named G.C. Raehr was to run.

But when that didn't happen, the site was sold to James Valentine, who had learned the shoemaking trade in his native Scotland. He started producing shoes in 1904 and in 1908 acquired a partner, Jacob B. Martin, previously the bookkeeper for a shirtmaker. ....The shoe business prospered and Martin became sole owner after Valentine's death in 1929. In 1938, he sold the firm to Greb Shoe of Kitchener, which until then was primarily a boot maker....1a

30462 In 1882 Edward Roos bought the lot which Charlton and Hurst now own and on the front portion now torn down, built a barn with dwelling above which his family occupied for years; and in rear of this barn he built a stable to hold about twenty horses. In addition to the driving horses kept for hire, Mr. Roos kept a cab which he turned out at weddings, etc. behind a fine well-dressed, well-groomed pair of horses driven by a man equipped always with a silk hat. He had a carryall for summer use, which the ball team hired to make their out-of-town trips, picnic parties hired to go to the lake, etc. and for winter he had his pleasure sleigh which accommodated a goodly number out for a sleigh ride.

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

Ed. Roos sold out to William O. Vanatter in 1893 and embarked in the Hotel business at St. George. In 1898 Van. sold out to Henry Sachs and Alex Roos who conducted the business under style: "Sachs & Roos" and they in turn sold about 1909 to Charles Haas, V.S., and John Sudden who carried on as "Haas and Sudden" until Dr. Haas left not long afterwards; and John Sudden continued for several years and then disposed of the property to Len. Evans and went to Galt.1a

"The Ventures Drum & Bugle Corps was formed in the fall of 1972 by the late Peter Vanderkolff at the request of the Chief of Police who wanted a youth activity for young women. Originally the Ventures wore gold dresses and became affectionately known as "The Ladies In Gold". The nickname held a special meaning for each member and a definition respected by all. Since that first season thousands of young ladies have experienced the joys of belonging to the Venture program. Even though the uniform has changed many times over the years, the dedication, desire, spirit and pride retains the "Ladies Of Gold" as a unique and appealing unit.2a

30473 Mrs. O.T. Ball Passes In Her 102nd Year

The community was saddened on Friday by the death at Paris Nursing Home of Mrs. Osborne T. Ball, Ayr's oldest citizen, in her 102nd year
.

The former Jennifer Varcoe, she was born in Roseneath, Ont., on December 4, 1862, a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Varcoe.

Following her marriage in 1884, the couple farmed for several years in the Roseneath area, prior to moving to Norwood where Mr. Ball operated a novelty shop for about three years.

In 1906 they came to Ayr, where Mr. Ball conducted an undertaking and furniture establishment for many years in what is now the Oddfellows' building on Stanley St. He passed away in 1942.

Until her 100th birthday, Mrs. Ball had been ill only once when she suffered an attack of typhoid fever 46 years ago.

Mrs. Ball was a member of Roseneath Methodist Church in her younger years and later was an adherent of Knox United Church. She was an active member of the former Ladies' Aid Society in the church and took a deep interest in the work of the Ayr Women's Institute.

Some years ago Mrs. Ball fractured her hip n a fall and was confined to Brantford Hospital for eight months, following which she became a resident of Paris Nursing Home.

In spite of advancing years, Mrs. Ball retained good hearing and vision and gave up knitting, at which she excelled; only a few years ago.

As the years went by, Mrs. Ball's birthdays became a marked local event, and on the occasion of the 100th milepost she received the congratulations of the Queen, as well as national, provincial and local government leaders. Her kindly disposition was an outstanding characteristic which won her the friendship and respect of all, and her passing is a district loss to our community.

Surviving are a son William O. Ball, Ayr; three daughters, Mrs. L.C. (flora) Vincent, Ayr; Mrs. L.C. (Hilda) Elms, Courtright, and Mrs. L.C. (Gertrude) Smiley of Rocklyn, near Meaford; one sister, Mrs. William Heal of Peterborough; 10 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by a son, Wesley ball, and a daughter, Mrs. L.B. (Addie) Sifton.

The Funeral

Funeral service was held on Monday at the W.O. Ball Funeral Home, operated by her son. Rev. W.J.V. Buchanan officiated and interment was made in the Ayr Cemetery.

Pallbearers were grandsons: Lyle Sifton of St. Thomas, George Ball of Dundas, Fred Ball of Galt, Jack Ball, Warren Vincent and Marlen Vincent of Ayr.1a

30476 DR. WILLIAM H. VARDON

c. 1835-1886 Married: 1. Margaret Ann Spears (Died 1866) 2. Elvina Whiting

Dr. William Hawkins Vardon was born in Pickering Township, near Toronto and was the older brother of Dr. Thomas W. Vardon. William Vardon received his degree in medicine from Victoria College, Cobourg in May 1862 after studying at the Toronto General Hospital. In 1871 he established a medical practice in Hawkesville, in Wellesley township thereby becoming the first known doctor in the village. He took a leading role in the politics of Wellesley township, serving as Reeve of the township from 1865 to 1868 and acting, at the same time, as Warden of Waterloo County. He also acted as the coroner of Waterloo County during his time in Hawkesville. In November 1871 he moved to the town of Waterloo and then, in June 1873, to Galt. Dr. Vardon was described as "skillful and daring" in his profession and experienced considerable professional success. His domestic life was considerably less successful and within two years of the move to Galt his wife took their daughter and went to live with her brother in Berlin, (now Kitchener) Ontario. Dr. Vardon tried various legal and illegal means to gain custody, including three attempts to forcibly seize his daughter. The illegal attempts all failed and in April 1878 he appealed to the courts which awarded him custody. A few days after receiving custody, Dr. Vardon took his daughter with him as he tried to convince his wife to return to him. While this attempt at reconciliation was going on, the daughter slipped out the back door and was hidden by friends of the mother. After a time Dr. Vardon appeared to become reconciled with the idea of his daughter remaining with his former wife. However, the matter continued to gnaw at him until finally he had a severe mental break down and, in March 1885, was committed to the Toronto Asylum for treatment. His condition was apparently aggravated by the use of narcotics. While in the asylum he suffered a stroke and died
on January 9, 1886. He was buried in Hawkesville, from the residence of his brother Dr. Thomas W. Vardon. Following the funeral Dr. Thomas Vardon moved from Hawkesville to establish a medical practice in Galt in partnership with Dr. John B. Lundy.

30477 A Blacksmithshop and Tavern

Shortly after the Schneiders had moved into their new home a stranger, Phineas Varnum, pulled their latchstring. He wanted to buy a parcel of land on which to run up a blacksmith shop and roadhouse. On amount of the toil spent in clearing his land, Pioneer Schneider was averse to selling any part of it. Yet after pondering the value of a smithy to the settlement, he leased Varnum a site in West King Street, near. the Walper House corner. Varnum, built his shop and tavern between 1820 and 1824 and, as the story goes, plied his callings them until the early eighteen-thirties. The saw-mill and the smithy were the first stirrings of urban life in the city.1a

30479 Woman killed in targeted incident in Kitchener

A 22 year-old woman was found dead in her Country Hills apartment building in Kitchener early Friday morning.

Police are identifying the woman as Melinda Vasilije from Kitchener.

Inspector Michael Haffner says Regional Police responded to the unit just before 3 a.m.

"Upon arrival, police located a 22-year-old deceased woman. That investigation and death is considered suspicious. We do believe that this was a targeted incident."

Police say they are looking for 24-year-old Ager Mohsin Hasan, from Hamilton. Police say he was known to have been in contact with Vasilije that evening and is believed to be operating a 2016 Honda HR-V, black in colour, bearing Ontario Licence plate BPKT509.....

Hamilton murder suspect had 'difficulty accepting' breakup: court paper


Hamilton man waiting return from Texas is charged with killing ex-girlfriend

A Hamilton man arrested in the U.S. in connection with the murder of his ex-girlfriend in Kitchener contacted her repeatedly before her death despite a court order that prohibited him from communicating with her, court documents allege.

Newly unsealed U.S. court documents allege Ager Hasan "had difficulty accepting" the end of his year-long relationship with 22-year-old Melinda Vasilije and continued to reach out to her by text message and social media.

The documents, which were filed in May as part of an application for Hasan's arrest and made public last week, offer new insight into what police believe happened in the hours, days and weeks leading up to Vasilije's death. The allegations have not been proven in court.

In early April, Hasan allegedly broke into Vasilije's Kitchener home in an attempt to contact her, attacking her roommate and the roommate's brother in the process, the documents say.

He was charged with break and enter and two counts of assault and released on bail, with the conditions that he stay out of Waterloo Region and refrain from communicating with Vasilije directly or indirectly, the documents show. He was also barred from owning any weapons.....

30494 MRS. JOHN McNAB, JR. Her maiden name was Jane Veitch. She was a bright, cheerful, happy Christian, evidently living in the light, and finding all her world in the home where God had placed her, and in living for the good of her husband and their children. She was a loving wife and a devoted mother. She had great affection for her children, and it was out of this that the great sorrow of her life came. She had a sick son, whose health never improved, and, as the sick one is the centre of the home, attracting all the attention and sympathy, and calling for all the care, he became an absorbing object of interest and concern, and when, in the providence of God, he was called away, her sense of loss was so great that she was deeply oppressed by it, and seldom did the weight lift till she went in to the haven of rest When we visited her a whole-hearted welcome always awaited us, and a real kindness ministered to our necessities ; and when we sat down to read the Word and talk of it, she was an attentive and delighted listener.

At her funeral friends were present from far and near, testifying their loving respect to the precious memory of a sweet soul, a beneficent life and a most worthy character.1a

A Woolwich Township Council was organized on January 21st, 1850. The councillors were: John Meyer, Edward Passmore, Peter Wenger, Peter Hay, and Wm. Veitch. They met "at Conestoga, in Kurtz's tavern."

30530 Some stories long current about the cholera cannot be traced to any reliable source. But the floating rumour that four men who died of the pest were buried in one grave, near the eastern end of the stone bridge on the macadamised road, north of the town, is perfectly true. Two of those buried were named Lamberton and Vincent, and among those who took part in the burial was Alonzo Bliss, to whom reference has already been made. On returning home, Bliss said to his wife, "If cholera is catching, I will take it." This prediction, alas, proved too true. The next morning he was dead. Vincent

CELEBRATION OF THE LIFE OF MELVIN EDWARD VOEGTLE

HOLY TRINITY ANGLICAN CHURCH JULY 19, 2007
Written and delivered by Richard Martin

I am deeply honoured to have been asked to be part of this celebration of the life of Melvin Edward Voegtle.
I have known Mel for over 60 years, we are brothers-in-law, but more importantly, I have always thought of Mel as a close and much valued friend, who I enjoyed spending time with.

As we celebrate Mel, and share our memories and thoughts of:
" What made Mel Mel? And
" What he meant to all of us.
There will also be many references to Marj - As we all know it is virtually impossible to talk about one without the other.

From Mel's perspective his greatest accomplishment by far was the partnership he formed with Marj, Starting as very different individuals, they meshed perfectly as a couple. They loved unconditionally, worked extremely well together and in the process accomplished many of their dreams and ambitions - and earned the love and respect of all of us. Worthy roll models for any couple, young or old.

Mel's # 1 priority was family:
" Sandy, Brian, Kathy and Kim
" The grandchildren and great grandchildren, and
" The extended family.

Loving and always highly supportive, quick to express pride in their accomplishments and also quick to offer advice when he thought such was needed.
I don't know of any parents who worked harder to keep the family together than Marj and Mel.

Mel was justifiably of his employment record. Staring at age 15, he worked 41 years with B. F. Goodrich. In the late1950's Mel worked long hours at Elliot Lake - living apart from his family for 18 months - to accumulate the down payment for their home on Franklin St, - A home which they enjoyed for almost 50 years.

After Elliot Lake, Mel was sent on short duration field trips from time to time. He enjoyed both the travel and visiting different customer operations.

Mel retired from B. F. Goodrich when the company was sold. He then embarked on a 2nd career as a Court Service Officer in Family Court. He was uniquely suited for this work and thoroughly enjoyed assisting the families, judges and lawyers who attended the court. He continued in this work for 13 years.

Mel was one of those rare individuals who enjoyed his work and found it thoroughly satisfying, by the way Brian - any time your dad discussed your next job, he always identified the court as offering you the prospect of a highly rewarding 2nd career.

Mel was a very social person who loved talking to people. He had a real facility for attracting - and keeping - friends, many of these friendships dated back decades to:

" A.Y.P.A
" Franklin St. and Holy Trinity
" B. F. Goodrich and the Court House

To name a few, and, many of these friends are here this morning. Anyone who came to the house was received warmly. Mel and Marg loved spending evenings with family and friends. Talking and playing cards - with Mel - ever the comedian - teasing someone to gain a reaction. Anytime Mel and I walked at the Rec Centre or went out for lunch, we invariably met old friends. Mel always enjoyed - and gained energy from these encounters.

Holy Trinity was the faith community which represented the keystone in the solid foundation which anchored Mel's life. He had a deep and trusting faith, and he lived his faith. Mel served on the church Board of Managers for many years and, was always available to help around the church in any way he could. Mel cherished the friendships which he and Marj enjoyed with so many parishioners. The church dances and other social events provided many happy occasions.

Mel and Marj shared a strong commitment to community service. In addition to his work at Holy Trinity, Mel became a leader of Brian's Cub Pack and continued for 13 years. He and Marj also worked for the MS Society for many years,

Mel had a life long passion for cars. Early in their married life, a car became a necessity to accommodate Marj's frequent family visits to Peterborough. The need was satisfied by purchasing a 20 year old, Robin's egg blew Oldsmobile - Which Mel drove and maintained with great pride and affection. Later Mel, became a convert to Ford products. Careful thought was given to any car purchase, and similar care was directed to regular servicing. One of the truly enjoyable highlights of Mel's last few months was to go with Kim to have her vehicle serviced at the Ford dealership in New Hamburg. To quote Mel; "They remembered me." An earlier highlight was the weekend he, Kim and Brian delivered his car to it's new owner in Ottawa.

Let me summarize a few other memories;

" Mel was a life long baseball fan, starting as a Cleveland Indians supporter he quickly adopted the Blue Jays when they arrived on the scene. He loved watching ball games and attended the grandchildren's - and Kim's - games. A particular highlight for many years was the Labour Day Blue Jay Game with the guys - followed by a barbeque at The Coursey's.
" Later in life, Mel discovered that his true athletic ability was as a Bocci Ball player. He enjoyed the fellowship of the sport, but as was to be expected was a fierce competitor.
" Mel always looked forward to Sauble beach, he enjoyed miniature golf, cards and board games, and going to the beach. For thirty years the Martins vacationed at Southampton at the same time the Voegtles were at Sauble, for me the family visits back and forth were special.
" Mel always enjoyed and was generally the centre of attention, at gatherings of the extended family for picnics and other events.
" No description of Mel would be complete without mentioning his love of
o Dancing
o His video collection featuring such stars as Hopalong Cassidy, The Lone Ranger and John Wayne, and
o His collection of Gospel and vintage CD's, and the enjoyment he got from singing along with the music.
That is the Mel Voegtle we all loved and respected.

Before concluding

On behalf of all of the family and friends, I would like to pay tribute, and extend a very special thank you to, Kim, Brian and Kathy for the exemplary way in which they have coped during the last 2 years with the loss of their parents.

There is no course 101 Parent support and care. To prepare you. You learn as you go and do the best that you can, and, in the process, you find yourself doing things you never dreamed you were capable of. I give them the highest marks for the always considerate, devoted and compassionate way which they handled all aspects of their parents illnesses and passing. Kim, Brian and Kathy you have shown all of us what it means to really care.

We all have our special memories of Mel which will endure into the future. He was a good person who lived his life in accordance with a deeply held code of beliefs and principles. He was a loving husband and parent, a cherished friend, and, an exceptionally likeable and unforgettable guy.

I suspect Mel is now doing what he has wanted to do for the last 2 years, walking off into the sunset with his beloved Marj.
Mel go in peace with our love.

Violet Scriver hosted cooking show on CKCO
BY CHERRI GREENO Record staff

Only a select few knew how good,a mother and grandmother Violet Scriver was. But everyone knew how good a cook she was. From a tiny kitchen on the set of CKCO-TV, Scriver brought the fun of cooking to homes throughout Waterloo Region with her show Come Into the Kitchen.

Although she passed away Tuesday at age 89, Scriver's family and friends say her success and loving personality will live on forever.

Otherwise known as "Mrs. S," Scriver taught men and women, young and old, how to cook a healthy meal and make it look good. She taught them how to whip up quick and easy treats and make it look difficult. She taught amateur chefs how to have fun.

"She was extremely popular," said Reg Sellner, who used to work with Scriver on the show "I bet there are still some people using her recipes to-day" Sellner, who was a young bachelor when the show was on the air, admitted he learned a few cooking tips from Scriver. "She was very precise with her cooking," he said. Her show debuted in the mid-1950s and lasted into the mid-1960s. It was one of the first live shows produced at the station. After that, she travelled throughout Ontario, appearing on cooking shows as a guest chef She also wrote and published a cookbook. In her spare time, she visited family "For her time she made quite a bit of money, but it always went to family" said one of her two daughters, Margaret Perchaluk. "That's just the type of person she was."

Scriver went into the television business after her husband of only three years died in a factory accident. Although she was only 21 when he died, she never re-married, Perchaluk said. Instead, she concentrated on the family she had and helped raise her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. One of Perchaluk's fondest memories is when her mother would make miniature doughnuts,
"She always said you shouldn't make them on damp days," said Perchaluk. "I never asked why"

Having a mother as a professional cook, Perchaluk always had the best treats. She also had one of the most loving mothers, she said. "She was quite a woman," she said. "I am very proud of her"

30561 "In the late 1980's, a group of concerned individuals decided to do something about the fact that rental housing was becoming increasingly hard to afford. At the time, the Federal Government of Canada used to sponsor a co-op housing program through the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC).

The founding group approached CMHC and got the ball rolling. The group incorporated as Bread and Roses Co-operative Homes (Kitchener). Our name: Bread and Roses is symbolic of the fact that people need not just a home (Bread), but also a community to live in and belong to (the Roses). In addition, it is the title of a historically significant song from the labour movement.

THE BUTTON FACTORY

The original building began life as a button factory in 1879. Owned and operated by Emil Vogelsang. This historical site became available to Bread and Roses,
negotiations were concluded and construction began. A new high-rise building was put up and the historical factory was converted into apartments.

Finally, after a long and adventurous road, the first members moved into the project in June of 1990. Because the goal was not to make a profit, but rather to provide safe and secure housing to those who needed it, special efforts were made to accommodate those who are at a disadvantage in seeking comfortable housing. Just over half of the apartments were designated as rent-geared-to-income housing (RGI); and is funded by CMHC. We were also able to get 4 wheelchair-accessible units and reserve two RGI units for people living with HIV/AIDS. From the beginning, we have been a mixed-income community and have welcomed diversity in our membership.

Since being founded, Bread and Roses has gone through many phases of community building and learning how to run its own affairs independently. Having lately gone through a series of building improvements, we are currently focusing on community growth and a culture of involvement where members are active in the day-to-day running and decision-making of the Co-op. Every new member is an additional asset to Bread and Roses. Each bringing with them new experiences and skills to contribute to our little community."1a

The Button Industry


A young German named Emil Vogelsang came to Berlin in 1867 and chummed with Allan Huber, son of H. S. Huber. One day the merchant questioned the youth,

"What can you do, Emil?"
"I'm a button turner."
"Then show us how you make buttons."
"Before I could do that," said Emil, "I'd need a lathe and a batch of ivory-nuts."


Mr. Huber had a lathe made in Waterloo and imported a shipment of nuts for Mr. Vogelsang. The latter leased a room and power from the Simpson Furniture Company and soon was manufacturing first-class buttons. He called his venture, "The Pioneer Button Works." The buttons found a ready sale in Eastern Canada and the United States. His was the first button factory in Canada, if not in America..

Before long Mr. Vogelsang needed a factory of his own. He interested J. J. Woelfle in the enterprise and they awarded Jacob Y. Shantz a contract to erect a $20,000 building on the northeast corner of King and College Streets. Before it was up Mr. Woelfle withdrew. Mr. Shantz then purchased an interest in the button works for a sum equal to the price of the building and entered into a 7-year agreement with Mr. Vogelsang. When that term expired Mr. Vogelsang retired and built another button factory in South Queen Street, which he later sold to the W. G. & R. Shirt Company. (Now occupied by the Fehrenbach Mattress Co.)

Mr. Shantz had not had any practical experience in the manufacture of buttons, yet did not wish to see the employees deprived of their livelihood. He therefore continued manufacturing and after costly experimenting, during which he was assisted by his son, M. B. Shantz, the factory was placed on a sound footing. Mr. Shantz's sons Dilman and John likewise joined him. Jacob Y. Shantz & Sons became the largest employers of labor in Berlin. For a time there were four button factories in the town and it was widely known as "Buttonville." Jacob Y. Shantz entered into partnership also with a Mr. Feick and made felt goods in the button-factory basement.2a

Emil came to Canada in 1866, aged 32. A year later he sent for Louisa. They were married by her brother, Rev. F.W. Tuerk, who was already here as the minister of the New Jerusalem Church (Swedenborg). Another of her brothers worked for Emil in the Vogelsang Button Factory and it is said that he embezzeled money and thus ruined the business. Emil opened a new Button Factory in Port Elgin, ON. He died at age 59 after he moved back to Berlin, ON, and the VOGELSANG burial plot is in Mt. Hope Cemetery, Kitchener.

DEATH CLOSES BRILLIANT CAREER OF DR. A. S. VOGT

World-Famous Founder of Mendelssohn Choir Is Called In His 65th Year

FIGURE IN MUSICAL WORLD

A Born Musician, Played Church Organ In Elmira When Only 12 Years Old

Dr. Augustus Stephen Vogt, F.R C O., founder of the Mendelssohn Choir, Dean of the Faculty of Music, University of Toronto Conservatory of Music, died Friday afternoon at Wellesley Hospital. Dr. Vogt was taken ill on Monday evening with intestinal flu. Cardiac complications developed. Until Friday morning, his physicians hoped for his recovery. Dr. Vogt, who was 65 years of age, had planned to leave in three weeks' time to spend the winter in Europe. Last winter he was in California. H. A. Fricker, Mus.-Doc., F.R.C.O., who succeeded Dr. Vogt as conductor of the Mendelssohn choir was so moved as to be almost unable to express his regret when informed of Dr Vogt's death. "We have lost one of our most important and well-loved figures in the musical world," said Dr. Fricker. Dr. Albert Ham, F.R.O., who has been a friend of Dr. Vogt's for nearly 30 years, always regarded him as the outstanding man for the position of director of the Toronto Conservatory of Music

Born Musician

A born leader, Dr. Vogt was also endowed with those qualities which distinguished the genius from the ordinary, and he had an unfailing tact to help him over rough spots. He had natural business ability, and was versed in many subjects entirely alien to his professional art. Dr. Vogt was born at Washington, a village in Oxford county. Aug. 14, 1861. His father was a builder ......
(Continued on page 3)

To Dr. A.S. Vogt

The following poem in the possession of Mrs. George Ruppel, a sister of the late Dr. A. S. Vogt, was written by S.T. Church and read to the famous conductor at a banquet tendered him on May 2, 1907 by the Toronto Glee Club:
In Old Oxford County, some twenty leagues West,
Where big cheeses flourish, and butter's, the best,
And the people are honest 'cause they never quite know
How to do up a fellow, before he does you:
There a youngster was born-like most of us were,
Not a rag to his back, and a scarceness of hair,
Not a sign of a purse or one cent to his name,
Nor else, to commend him to honor and fame.
His advent: occurred without herald or horn,
'Twas taken for granted, like the dawn of the morn,
So they wrapped him up warmly in garments of wool,
No trouble gave he,--when his stomach was full.

Knowing not what the future held kindly in store,
But he knew how to plod, and he plodded what's more.

So perfect his (b) megi, and so great the demand
--Its fame even spread to the Yankee man's land-
That the whole country 'round came in throngs to behold
The grind of meal by this ( c ) miller so bold
So he kept the mill grinding from year unto year,
His smile tells of gladness, his laugh of good cheer,
Discouragements never his purposes stop

Let's crow him with honor, this miller of note

Extend the glad hand of the teller so wise

Throngs Pay Stirring Tribute To Man Who Developed Great Musical Thought Funeral Held in Toronto

Sir Robert Falconer Utters Touching Eulogy; Passing Mourned In Elmira

Many fine tributes were paid to the memory of Dr. A. S. Vogt, Mus. Bac., L. L. D., Principal of Toronto Conservatory of Music, and Dean of the Faculty of Music at the University of Toronto, when the funeral services were held Monday afternoon at Convocation Hall, Toronto and when several thousand citizens from many walks of life paid their last respects to the memory of the man who had done so much to build up the musical life of the city. The members of the Mendelssohn Choir, founded by the late Dr. Vogt, were present and occupied the main portion of the hall, and by the singing of a number of his favorite hymns, they made the funeral service of Dr. Vogt symbolic of the life he had lived in their midst.

The body lay in state for two hours prior to the service, during which hundrededs of citizens passed before it to pay their tributes. Great banks of flowers massed the whole front of the hall; and over all there were evidences of deep sorrow on the part of the citizens, who had come so closely in touch with the late Dr. Vogt. Dr. F.A. Moure, of the University of Toronto, presided at the organ, while Rev. Henry Roche and Rev. Henry Marsh, of St. Paul's Anglican Church had charge of the service, and Sir Robert Falconer delivered the address.
"Once again the country has been startled by the call which has come of one of its benefactors," Sir Robert said, "he was carried away suddenly, without a word of farewell, and his departure was in keeping with the spirit of his life. I feel he would have wished to go that way, without any lingering illness, and without the troubling thoughts that his later days would not be filled with the strength to enable him to carry on his work or to complete his unfinished duties.

A Life of Achievement

"Dr. Vogt rounded out 65 years of life, and, despite ill-health in his later years, his powers had not failed to the extent of preventing him carrying on an effective work. In the evening of his life he was able to look back upon a work well done, upon work which, won favorable recognition in the United States and Great Britain, and in other portions of the world."
Sir Robert recalled that the late Dr. Vogt had three signal accomplishments. He founded the Mendelssohn Choir, he built up the Conservatory of Music, and he introduced the spirt of music to the University of Toronto.
Among the chief mourners were: Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Vogt Elmira, (the former a brother); Mr. and Mrs. C. K. Janson of Galt, (a sister) and Mr. and Mrs. (ter a sister) Mrs. George Ruppel S.H. Eby of St. Thomas. (the latter a sister).1a

30567 To Dr. A.S. Vogt

The following poem in the possession of Mrs. George Ruppel, a sister of the late Dr. A. S. Vogt, was written by S.T. Church and read to the famous conductor at a banquet tendered him on May 2, 1907 by the Toronto Glee Club:

In Old Oxford County, some twenty leagues West,
Where big cheeses flourish, and butter's, the best,
And the people are honest 'cause they never quite know
How to do up a fellow, before he does you:
There a youngster was born-like most of us were,
Not a rag to his back, and a scarceness of hair,
Not a sign of a purse or one cent to his name,
Nor else, to commend him to honor and fame.
His advent: occurred without herald or horn,
'Twas taken for granted, like the dawn of the morn,
So they wrapped him up warmly in garments of wool,
No trouble gave he,--when his stomach was full.
Year after year as older he grew,
'Twas clear to be seen what the lad 'meant to do,
"He's music'ly bent," the neighbors would say,
"He'll stir up the dust some day in some way.
As time, moved along with its measured old sway.
The lad jogged along 'mid his work and his play,
Knowing not what the future held kindly in store,
But he knew how to plod, and he plodded what's more.
By diligence rare he rose step by step.
A toiler was he while other folk slept,
He had the good sense to keep his mouth still
And grind well the grist that came to his(a) mill.
So perfect his (b) megi, and so great the demand
--Its fame even spread to the Yankee man's land-
That the whole country 'round came in throngs to behold

______________________

There passed away into the higher life on Monday night, one of Elmira's estimable young ladies - Miss Bella Vogt -, daughter of Mrs. George Vogt. On Thursday afternoon her remains were consigned to the grave, in the presence of a concourse of sorrowing friends. The funeral hour had been set for two o'clock. But long before the appointed time, hundreds of friends and neighbors had gone to the family residence to pay their last respects to one they esteemed in life and to express their sympathy to the bereaved family.

The body lying amid a bank of flowers appeared most life-like. It might have been a beautiful bride, asleep, which they viewed. There was genuine sorrow shown by those present, in the quiet way of those who feel deeply.

The funeral was a large one, and ceremonies at the house, the cemetery and the church were impressively fine and solemn. The Rev. A.M. Hamilton, M.A., of Gale Presbyterian Church, officiated. The hymns sung at the church had been selected by the young lady before her death. There were present relatives and friends from Toronto, Hamilton, St. Thomas, Berlin, Galt, Freeport and many other points.

Among those who attended the last sad ceremony were young and old, rich and poor and they came from far and near. The reason the unusually strong tribute of respect shown was because the deceased was one of Nature's Gentlewomen. She had written her name in kindness on the hearts of those she came in contact with daily and so "erected a monument which time cannot destroy." Her life will become a sweet memory. Going Home, she will find the Gates Ajar - Berlin News-Record.

The funeral of Miss Bella Vogt was held last Thursday afternoon, and was very largely attended.2a

30575 Oscar H. Vogt, Manufacturer And Noted Citizen, Is Dead

President of Great West Felt Company Failed to Recover After Operation in St. Joseph's Hospital, Guelph; born in Elmira, He Directed Big Industry Here For 17 Years

Oscar Vogt is dead.

Grimly battling to the end, conscious and with a word of farewell for his loved ones on his lips, Oscar H. Vogt, Elmira's most outstanding citizen and one of the most prominent business executives of Waterloo County, succumbed to a comparatively brief illness about 9:15 this (Thursday) morning in St. Joseph's Hospital, Guelph.

The late Mr. Vogt was aged 68 years, 10 months and 23 days and death followed an operation he underwent just before midnight Wednesday evening, decided upon by his medical men to an almost forlorn effort to save his life.

Conscious to the End

The late Mr. Vogt had been slightly unwell for about a week previous to Saturday when his condition became worse. Dr. W. D. S. Cross was summoned and on Monday held consultation with Dr. H. O. Howitt, of Guelph. Tuesday there was no improvement and Dr. Young, of Toronto, was called in. With the complaint more definitely diagnosed, his removal to hospital at Guelph was decided upon. He was taken there Tuesday night and it was planned to operate Thursday morning. Dr. W. P. Cavin, of Toronto, was called in consultation. Throughout Wednesday he gradually grew weaker and his suffering became more intense. Although appearing almost hopeless the doctors decided upon an immediate operation. He entered the operating room at 11:30 pm. At 6 O'clock this morning he recovered from the anaesthetic and rallied slightly. He was quite conscious and recognized those about his bedside.

With him during his last moments were his wife and two sisters, Mrs. George Ruppel, of Elmira, and Mrs. C. K. Jansen and the latter's husband, of Galt. Although very weak he smiled feebly and apparently knowing the end was near bade each farewell.

Town Is Shocked

Death came at 9:15 o'clock.

Word of his untimely demise was immediately telephoned to Elmira, where a host of friends and relatives awaited anxiously, known of his condition. A gloom was cast over the town when the sad tidings were received. The office and plant of the Great West Felt Company was closed down in respect to the late president and will remain closed until Monday.

The late Mr. Vogt was born in Elmira, on June 5, 1868, the youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. George Vogt. He received his education and spent his early life in Elmira, and later entered the employ of Shurley and Dietrich, of Galt, and for 25 years represented this company on the road. In 1910, upon representations being made to him, he organized the great West Felt Company and became its president. For 17 years he occupied this position jointly with that of manager and the great industry of which Elmira is so proud, stands today as a monument to this ability.

Had Many Interests

While the felt company occupied his main attention he had numerous other interests. Just recently he was named vice-president of the reorganized Elmira Creamery Company, Limited. He was director of the Waterloo Trust and Savings Company, and of the Dumart Packing Company, of Kitchener.

While he never stood for public office he always took a deep interest in municipal and political questions and throughout his long residence was identified with many public activities. He was a member of the Chamber of Commerce, and a keen lover of flowers, he took an active part in the work of the Horticultural Society, of which he was a member. He was past president of the Curling and Bowling clubs for some years, and also honorary president of the Elmira Amateur Athletic Association and a director of the Elmira Musical Society. A conservative in politics, he was vice-president of the North Waterloo Conservative Association. A Presbyterian in religion he as a member of Gale Presbyterian Church. He was a Mason and Odd Fellow.

Married in 1925

Mr. Vogt was married to Miss Edith Behrens, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Behrens, Elmira, on July 14, 1925.

The death of Mr. Vogt makes the fifth loss in the Vogt family within three years. Frederick Vogt, a brother, died September 14, 1924, in Mishawaka, Ind. On June 28, Mrs. Marianne Vogt, his mother, died in her 95th year. Dr. Augustus S. Vogt famous as the founder of the Mendelssohn Choir, passed away September 17, 1925, while seven weeks later, the latter's son-in-law, Dr. Patrick Hardy, of Toronto, was called.

In addition to his widow, the late Mr. Vogt is survived by four sisters, Mrs. Philip Christman, Mrs. George Ruppel, Elmira; Mrs. S. H. Eby, St. Thomas; and Mrs. C. K. Jansen, Galt.

Funeral on Saturday

The funeral will take place on Saturday at 3 pm from his late residence, 2 William Street. Following service at the home interment will be made in Elmira Cemetery. The following will act as pallbearers: Messrs. Fred Shurley, of St. Catherines; Menno Weber, Anderson Schroder, Arthur Ullyot, J. B. Jarrell and A. Moses, Honorary pallbearers will be: W. G. Weichel, M. L. A.; Col. Oliver, Galt; Mr. Percy Deitrich, Galt; Mr. F. McGregor, Galt; Messrs. Ford Kumpf and Edward Seagram, Waterloo; Messrs. Lester Weaver and George Forbes, Hespler; W. V.

MRS. P. CHRISTMAN CELEBRATES HER EIGHT-SEVENTH BIRTHDAY


Probably Elmira's second oldest resident, Mrs. Philip Christman celebrated her 87th birthday at her home on Arthur street on Wednesday. Still in excellent health, and active, Mrs. Christman was entertained at home by some thirty-five ladies of the Presbyterian church on Wednesday night.

Able to take an active part in the birthday party proceedings, Mrs. Christman was indeed the centre of attention. She was delightfully surprised with the presentation of a floor rug from the ladies present, While the games and contests held added to the pleasure of her four scores and seventh birthday.

A member of the Presbyterian church, Mrs. Christman is looked upon as one of the most faithful followers, very seldom missing a. Sunday service. The ladies of the church who entertained her have done so annually since she passed the eighty mark. Many more such gatherings are looked forward to by all.

Born in Hamilton, Mrs. Christman moved to this district approximately 72 years ago. Two younger sisters are still living, Mrs. C. Jensen of Galt, and Mrs. S. H. Eby of St. Thomas. It is believed that Mrs. Mary Schroeder, 92 years of age, is the only lady older than Mrs. Christman in Elmira. .

Wednesday night's birthday cake was decorated with four candles, but on the top centre was the number 87 clearly made in colored icing. The presentation of the floor rug was made Rev. G.D. Little, on behalf of the ladies.

30577 On Sunday afternoon, long ago, J. R. Eden, G. M. DeBus and William Vogt strolled along David Street. Pointing to the right, Mr. Vogt said, "There'd be a fine spot for a central park. It has land, water and woods." His companions agreed the fact and Mr. Eden inserted an item in the press recommending the idea. Soon a plan was evolved to buy the athletic grounds and part of Samuel Schneider's lands up to the railway track. In the fall of 1894 a bylaw was introduced into the town council to adopt the Public Parks Act..1a

30581 VOISIN, George Gerard (February 20, 1953 - July 22, 2008) - George Voisin was the fifth child of Frank and Glady Voisin. He was the epitome of good health, exercise, and sensible eating. In spite of this, he passed away most unexpectedly while enjoying a round of golf on Tuesday afternoon. George is survived by his loving family, including his wife of 35 years, Elaine (nee Kuntz) and their four children: Ben Voisin and his wife Sabina who are expecting George's first grandchild; Dr. Heather Voisin and her fiancé, Dr. James Aru; Harmony Voisin; and Simon Voisin. His family and home were the centre of his universe. George is also survived by his parents, Frank and Glady Voisin, and his siblings: Greg and Marie Voisin, Mac Voisin, Anne and George Lavallee, Jane and Dr. Tom Simpson, Guy and Anne Voisin, Tina and Perry Arsdale, Paul and Tammy Voisin, Chris Voisin and Vince and Cathie Varga and his father-in-law Lorne Kuntz and his wife Elaine, his mother-in-law Edna Kuntz, and their six children: Lorne Jr. and his wife Joanne, Raymond and his wife Bonnie, Darlene, Diane Hinsperger and her partner Bryan Eckstein, Michael and Anne-Marie and her partner Svend Jacobsen. From an early age, it was obvious that George was blessed with a superior intellect. He skipped grade seven and jumped from grade eleven to university at the age of sixteen, received his Master's degree by twenty, and was working on a Ph.D. by twenty-one. He completed both his B.A. and M.B.A. at Wilfrid Laurier University; his M.A. at the University of Waterloo; and his LL.B. at the University of Windsor. His passion for the pursuit of knowledge and excellence was obvious in every area of his life. George was a noted tax lawyer and was respected across Canada as a leading authority in income tax and estate planning. Canadian tax law is an exceedingly complex specialty, and the fact that George was known as an authority in this area speaks to his great intellect, accomplishments, and dedication to his work. He was in partnership with Steve Lubczuk for 25 years. His staff knew, loved, and respected him, which speaks to the quality of person that George was. Together with his brother Greg, and their father Frank, George developed the Sunrise Shopping Centre in Kitchener, and owned and managed many other shopping centers across Ontario and Texas. George was a well-respected member of the community. In 2005, he was proud to be selected to join the Armenian community as an honourary member by Garo Bostajian. He was given the pseudonym 'Voisinian'. Additionally, he was a trusted and long-term advisor to the Roman Catholic Diocese and the Congregation of the Resurrection. George was also an active member of both the Kitchener-Waterloo Granite Club and Westmount Golf and Country Club. To many people, and most of all to his family and friends, George was a consigliere, a trusted advisor to whom they could turn for help with problems of a personal, legal or financial nature. His advice, which he came to with much thought and a few well-chosen words, would always be the perfect and final solution. His passing has left a huge void in the Voisin family, and indeed, the whole community. Visitations will be held at the Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home , 621 King St. W., Kitchener. The family received friends on Thursday, July 24 from 7-9 p.m. and on Friday, July 25, 2008 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Parish prayers were recited at 8:45 p.m. on Friday. Funeral services will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes Church at 173 Lourdes St., in Waterloo on Saturday, July 26, 2008 (today) at 10:30 a.m. A reception will follow at the Westmount Golf and Country Club at 50 Inverness Dr., in Kitchener at 12 noon, where a special eulogy will be given by George's brother, Greg Voisin. Since George was integrally involved in and dedicated much of his time and expertise to helping the Catholic Family Counseling Centre and the Family Violence Project of Waterloo Region, donations to either charity on George's behalf will be welcomed.

30604 VOISIN, Glady Rose (Voll) - March 10, 1921 - September 7, 2008. The family of Glady Rose Voisin is saddened by the passing of the Matriarch of their family on Sunday, September 7, 2008. She was blessed with a painless and peaceful death at home. Glady and Frank were married for 62½ wonderful years. There were no two people in love as much as Glady and Frank. They met in 1944 at the Summer Gardens which was a dance hall in Kitchener when Frank asked Glady to dance and the romance began. The dance turned into a lifetime of happiness for them. Glady and Frank had nine children. She made a loving home for all of them and their friends. She was the chief chauffeur, cook and care-giver. The focus of her life was Frank and her children. Glady is survived by her husband, Frank Voisin and their children, Greg and Marie Voisin, Mac Voisin, Anne and George Lavallee, Jane and Dr. Tom Simpson, Elaine Voisin (widow of George), Guy and Anne Voisin, Tina and Perry Van Arsdale, Paul and Tammy Voisin, Chris Voisin and dear family friends, Vince and Cathie Varga. Glady was predeceased by her son, George, in July 2008. Glady had 28 grandchildren, Cynthia and Dr. John Sehl, Steve and Shevaun Voisin, Tanya and Scott Wigle, Julie and Dr. Tyler Zapton, Frank and Danielle Voisin, Father Adam Voisin, Angela and Shawn Cote, Dr. Chad and Tonya Lavallee, Avril Lavallee, Brent and Crystal Lavallee, Mary Ann Lavallee, Christie and Brandon Doneff, Michelle Nowak, Greg Nowak, Rob Nowak, Kyle Simpson, Ben and Sabina Voisin, Dr. Heather Voisin and her fiancé Dr. James Aru, Harmony Voisin, Simon Voisin, Kelly Voisin, Jenna Voisin, Andrea Bester, Amy Bester, Meghan Voisin, Nicholas Voisin, Stefanie and Michael Kangas, and Chris and Suzanne Varga; and 20 great-grandchildren. Glady, the daughter of Alex Voll and Cecelia Schmuck, was born and raised in Kitchener. She is survived by her sister, Rita Karges, and by her brothers, Wilbert Voll and Carl and his wife Agnes Voll. She was predeceased by her sisters, Dorothy Kraft, Bernice White, Ollie Pfeffer, and her brother, Gerald Voll. Gladys' greatest inspiration was her religion - she attended Mass faithfully and prayed to her friend, St. Anthony, for her friends, family and others who needed assistance. She was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes. Gladys' energy was unfailing and an inspiration to all. She crowded five lifetimes into one. Visitation will be at The Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home , 621 King St. W., Kitchener on Tuesday, September 9, from 7-9 p.m. and on Wednesday, September 10, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m., where parish prayers will be recited at 8:45 p.m. A funeral mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 173 Lourdes St., Waterloo, on Thursday September 11 at 11 a.m., followed by interment at Woodland Cemetery.

30631 Writer, mentor, wife, great-grandmother. Born on Jan. 17, 1925, in Markham, Ont.; died on July 20, 2015, in Toronto, of complications from Alzheimer's disease, aged 90.

Emily loved to write, starting as a teenage poet and eventually becoming an acclaimed author. She wrote children's books such as Franny and the Music Girl and Hattie Pearl Click Click, as well as scripts for radio and television (including 144 episodes of Polka Dot Door), and, with Mark Thurman, created the Mighty Mites comic strip for Owl Magazine. She spread her passion to others, coaching teachers on how to use creative writing and music in their classrooms.

Emily Hearn was a lively 16-year-old poet from Kitchener, Ont., when she began studies in English Literature at Trinity College, University of Toronto and immediately formed friendships, many of which proved to be lifelong.

Through two marriages, she was always writing as her daughter and three sons grew up. When money was scarce, her skills kept the household going with temporary work she could do from home. She could type faster than the wind and, for a while, put addresses on envelopes '96 at a penny a piece, while her kids played "fight like cowboys" and jumped on the couch and slid down the stairs.

By the early 1960s, she was teaching nursery school in Toronto, first at Howard Park United Church and then at what is now the Jewish Community Centre. This was the beginning of her many years of engaging with young children. Later she worked with children with disabilities, alongside Fran Herman, a pioneer of music therapy in Canada.

In 1967 she married Doug Valleau, her third husband '96 a union of poets that would last 43 years until his death in 2010. Doug's four daughters from a previous marriage and Emily's youngest son (her three eldest had left home by then) were part of what illustrator Mark Thurman describes as "a very creative environment." He recalls, "We often got stuck on part of a story. Emily would jump up, sit at the piano, play Bach or Mozart, and then suddenly stop. 'I've got it!' she'd yell. Then off we'd go again '96 her talking, me drawing."

As the years passed and the kids left home, Emily and Doug travelled frequently. But her writing and mentorship flourished. In 1990, she established Write With You, the elementary-school program of Writers in Electronic Residence, and for 20 years mentored children by e-mail.

The lively family gatherings were a jolly mix of exes and steps and ex-steps, with grandchildren eventually spanning in age through 42 years. When a child would ask how two "aunts" were related, the adults would exchange bewildered glances and give up, saying "We're all just family." Emily's vibrant enthusiasm drew everyone together. Her days were so busy and active that one of her granddaughters called her Secca: Whenever she phoned, Emily would say "Just a sec!" before returning to talk.

In her later years, she lived in a condominium tower with three elevators, each facing a different direction. Visitors could become disoriented when trying to determine which corridor to follow. One young granddaughter recalled how, at that moment, you would see Emily standing outside her door waving, a look of absolute delight on her face. This reflects the essence of Emily: helping you to find your way while making you feel like the most special person in the world.

Sue Carduelis is Emily's daughter; Allan Wadley is her nephew.

A Little Step Away

To close the eye, to fall asleep
To draw a labored breath
To find release from daily cares
In what we know as death...

Is this the crowning of a life,
The aim or end thereof?
The totaled sum of consciousness,
The ripened fruit of love?

It cannot be, for works of God
Are wrought for nobler ends,
And those away continue on
In the hearts of kin and friends.

It cannot be, for they live on
A little step away.
The soul, the everlasting life,
Has found a better day....

-O. J. Hanson1a

30716 From : A Genealogical Record of the Descendants of Christian and Hans MEYER and Other Pioneers Together with Historical and Biographical Sketches, Illustrated with Eighty-seven Portraits and Other Illustrations Repository: Call Number: R929.2 M613 Media: Book (page 122-124)...

His father, Rev. Jacob Wagner, was a native of Germany, born at Siefersheim, near Bingen on the Rhine, Hessen. He emigrated with his parents in 1840 and settled in the vicinity of Lyons, N. Y., where he was employed with his father, Henry Wagner, at farming and the coopers' trade, until brought to the Saviour by that indefatigable pioneer missionary, Rev. Joseph Harlacher, and began preaching at the age of 18, serving very important fields in the state of New York and Canada. He died in Berlin, Ont., April 19, 1858. His wife Margaret (nee Hailer) born upon Canadian soil, but of German descent, her father being from Wilfredingen, Baden, and her mother from Muhlhausen, Alsace, were the first German born settlers at Berlin, Ont., where they arrived in 1831. Several years after the death of her husband Mrs. Wagner married one Daniel Bean, a country school teacher, and Lewis Henry received a good common school education. An uncle after whom he was named, and his grandfather Jacob Hailer, of Berlin, took quite an interest in the lad, and with a view of giving him a better education offered him a home in their families, which he accepted, and when 13 years old left his mother's home to attend the Central school at Berlin. Three years later he passed the examination and attended the High school, continuing several years. An idea to get into business life possessed him, so he entered the employ of his uncle, Louis Breithaupt, as an apprentice tanner, remaining with him two years, also learning the trade of leather belt making during that time. The desire for still better educational attainments now again made themselves strongly felt, and he received permission to attend Northwestern College, an institution of the Evangelical Association at Naperville, Ill., where he remained three years, after which, in the Summer of 1878, he again entered the employ of his uncle as clerk in the leather and shoe findings department, and later as bookkeeper and traveling salesman.

Quite early in life impressions of a higher calling, that to which his sainted father sacrificed his energies and life, made themselves felt, but not until the Winter and Spring of 1882 would he consent to give it any attention. In his 12th year he was received into church fellowship on profession of faith, and as often as he lived up to the inner promptings of love and duty to God and man something seemed to tell him in words unheard by others yet keenly felt by himself, "you are not where God wants you." Being fond of business and not desiring the staid realities of an itinerant preacher's life, he would, for the time being, drown these inner promptings in the interests of his employments and at times even in actual folly. But now the thought would not leave him, and, after many prayers and consultations, he decided to apply to his class for recommendation to preach, which was freely given him. At this time he was holding the important offices of Sunday school superintendent and exhorter in the Evangelical church at Berlin. A few weeks later the Canada Conference of the Evangelical Association met at St. Jacobs, Ont., who unanimously granted him his license, received him into the itineracy and appointed him assistant to his former pastor, Rev. J. J. Klipphardt, at Sebringville. The next year he was given Gainsboro Mission, during which time he built and secured payment for a new church at Bismark and had an encouraging revival on the charge. In 1884 he was sent to Hespeler, having been ordained deacon by his conference just previously. About this time he was married to Mary Staebler. At the conference session of 1886 he passed all the examinations and completed the full course of study creditably, was ordained an elder and admitted into full connection in the conference. In 1887 he was assigned to Blenheim Circuit, where his wife died two weeks after their arrival, leaving an infant son.

Mr. Wagner's health becoming somewhat broken down, by the kindness of some friends in the Summer of 1888, he was privileged to make a few months tour to Europe, visiting England, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Italy, which quite restored him. In the Spring of 1889 his conference sent him to Campden station, where he served three years with much favor and success. It was while here that he was married, on July 4, 1889, to Sarah Lodema, eldest daughter of Jacob S. Moyer. Another move in 1892 brought them to their present field of labor, Stratford, Ont. Mr. Wagner has for eight years held the office of conference missionary treasurer. He is in the prime of life, having just passed his 38th birthday. His future is full of prospects, bright and encouraging.

30722 From : A Genealogical Record of the Descendants of Christian and Hans MEYER and Other Pioneers Together with Historical and Biographical Sketches, Illustrated with Eighty-seven Portraits and Other Illustrations Repository: Call Number: R929.2 M613 Media: Book (page 122-124)...

His father, Rev. Jacob Wagner, was a native of Germany, born at Siefersheim, near Bingen on the Rhine, Hessen. He emigrated with his parents in 1840 and settled in the vicinity of Lyons, N. Y., where he was employed with his father, Henry Wagner, at farming and the coopers' trade, until brought to the Saviour by that indefatigable pioneer missionary, Rev. Joseph Harlacher, and began preaching at the age of 18, serving very important fields in the state of New York and Canada. He died in Berlin, Ont., April 19, 1858. His wife Margaret (nee Hailer) born upon Canadian soil, but of German descent, her father being from Wilfredingen, Baden, and her mother from Muhlhausen, Alsace, were the first German born settlers at Berlin, Ont., where they arrived in 1831. Several years after the death of her husband Mrs. Wagner married one Daniel Bean, a country school teacher, and Lewis Henry received a good common school education. An uncle after whom he was named, and his grandfather Jacob Hailer, of Berlin, took quite an interest in the lad, and with a view of giving him a better education offered him a home in their families, which he accepted, and when 13 years old left his mother's home to attend the Central school at Berlin. Three years later he passed the examination and attended the High school, continuing several years. An idea to get into business life possessed him, so he entered the employ of his uncle, Louis Breithaupt, as an apprentice tanner, remaining with him two years, also learning the trade of leather belt making during that time. The desire for still better educational attainments now again made themselves strongly felt, and he received permission to attend Northwestern College, an institution of the Evangelical Association at Naperville, Ill., where he remained three years, after which, in the Summer of 1878, he again entered the employ of his uncle as clerk in the leather and shoe findings department, and later as bookkeeper and traveling salesman.

Quite early in life impressions of a higher calling, that to which his sainted father sacrificed his energies and life, made themselves felt, but not until the Winter and Spring of 1882 would he consent to give it any attention. In his 12th year he was received into church fellowship on profession of faith, and as often as he lived up to the inner promptings of love and duty to God and man something seemed to tell him in words unheard by others yet keenly felt by himself, "you are not where God wants you." Being fond of business and not desiring the staid realities of an itinerant preacher's life, he would, for the time being, drown these inner promptings in the interests of his employments and at times even in actual folly. But now the thought would not leave him, and, after many prayers and consultations, he decided to apply to his class for recommendation to preach, which was freely given him. At this time he was holding the important offices of Sunday school superintendent and exhorter in the Evangelical church at Berlin. A few weeks later the Canada Conference of the Evangelical Association met at St. Jacobs, Ont., who unanimously granted him his license, received him into the itineracy and appointed him assistant to his former pastor, Rev. J. J. Klipphardt, at Sebringville. The next year he was given Gainsboro Mission, during which time he built and secured payment for a new church at Bismark and had an encouraging revival on the charge. In 1884 he was sent to Hespeler, having been ordained deacon by his conference just previously. About this time he was married to Mary Staebler. At the conference session of 1886 he passed all the examinations and completed the full course of study creditably, was ordained an elder and admitted into full connection in the conference. In 1887 he was assigned to Blenheim Circuit, where his wife died two weeks after their arrival, leaving an infant son.

Mr. Wagner's health becoming somewhat broken down, by the kindness of some friends in the Summer of 1888, he was privileged to make a few months tour to Europe, visiting England, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Italy, which quite restored him. In the Spring of 1889 his conference sent him to Campden station, where he served three years with much favor and success. It was while here that he was married, on July 4, 1889, to Sarah Lodema, eldest daughter of Jacob S. Moyer. Another move in 1892 brought them to their present field of labor, Stratford, Ont. Mr. Wagner has for eight years held the office of conference missionary treasurer. He is in the prime of life, having just passed his 38th birthday. His future is full of prospects, bright and encouraging.

30731 Mike Wagner Heritage Awards

Named in honour of Mike Wagner, a former Kitchener city councillor who was a strong advocate for heritage, culture and the arts, this bi-annual award recognizes and pays tribute to individuals, property owners, businesses, organizations and institutions who have contributed to the conservation of the City's cultural heritage resources 
Mike Wagner
 
30732 Born in Kitchener in 1931, Mike Wagner spent 32 years as a teacher of English, 29 of them at Eastwood Collegiate Institute. After retiring from teaching, he entered municipal politics in 1990. As a Councillor from 1990 to 1997, Mike Wagner was a tireless campaigner for heritage preservation. His efforts and accomplishments touch upon many facets of heritage, including architectural conservation, cultural celebration and education. He was instrumental in the City of Kitchener's decision to establish a heritage planning function in 1992 and subsequently the position of Heritage Planner in 1993. He was a leading supporter of strengthening the City's Municipal Plan heritage policies as part of the Official Plan review process.

As Chairman of Kitchener LACAC/Heritage Kitchener for six years, he led the Committee in its efforts to conserve Kitchener's heritage resources, and was instrumental in negotiating the successful designation of several properties. Mike Wagner also led Kitchener LACAC through a phase of restructuring which included completion of a five-year Strategic Plan and the establishment of a comprehensive inventory recording and evaluation system. Through his leadership, the role and influence of Kitchener LACAC expanded both within and beyond City Hall, and eventually the Committee changed its name to Heritage Kitchener to reflect more accurately the work of the Committee.

Mike Wagner's concern for abandoned and deteriorating industrial buildings of architectural and historical significance led to the formation of the Adaptive ReUse Committee which he chaired throughout his term on City Council. Through his leadership, the Adaptive Re-Use Committee eliminated disincentives and developed a program which would encourage the adaptive re-use of vacant or older industrial and commercial buildings in Kitchener. This accomplishment gained national recognition and culminated in Mike Wagner presenting the City's Adaptive Re-Use incentives to the National Heritage Canada conference in 1996.

In these and other ways, Mike Wagner made a truly distinguished and formative contribution to the preservation of heritage in the City of Kitchener. He is eminently deserving of the Sally Thorsen Award for that contribution.1a
