30001 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

30002 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

30004 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.).

Gustavus A. Tuerk, Chicago, Illinois, explosive-engine, 641659; issued January 16, 1900; filed March 25, 1899; application signed March 3, 1899

Gustavus A. Tuerk, Berlin, Ontario, Canada, concrete-mixer, 1062936; issued May 27, 1913; filed July 17, 1912; application signed at Chicago July 13, 1912

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

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.

____________________

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

30046 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.

30056 TURNER, James Reynolds - Jim missed roll call today. The good Lord must have needed him. Showing great strength to those who loved him, Jim went home to his God on Sunday, January 11, 2009. James Reynolds Turner was born 85 years ago in Ayr and moved to Galt at the age of three. He was the youngest child of Frederick and Daisy Turner and was predeceased by his brother, John "Jake" Turner and his sister, Jean Little. Jim was married to his beloved wife, Elsie May Kibble for over 60 years. Together they raised two daughters, enjoyed traveling and spent many winters at their home in Zephyrhills, Florida. Missing their father are daughters, Judy and Diane and their husbands, Bill Feeney and Joe Olivera. Saddened by the loss of their special grandpa are Bryan Dearlove and his wife Amanda, Alison Dearlove, Cameron Dearlove and his wife Maibritt, Michael Feeney and Heather Feeney. Jim was an athletic boy who loved to play baseball and hockey and skate on the Grand River. During the Second World War, he walked and hitchhiked to London, Ontario so he could sign up for the army. A medical condition kept him from serving overseas but he was proud to have served Canada, earning his sergeant's stripes and playing on the Canadian Army Hockey Team. In time, Jim became well known in the building trades in the Cambridge area. As owner of "Jim Turner Construction", he built over 200 homes and he often joked that no one ever asked for his or her money back! Later, Jim sold real estate and developed subdivisions for GPH Developments. Jim was the charter president of the Galt, Preston and Hespeler Home Builders' Association. While past president of the Galt Kinsmen Club, he traveled to Kelowna, British Columbia and won the Hal Rogers' Award for the building of a school for mentally challenged children in Galt. For many years, he gladly played Santa for the special children at the William Anderson School. He was a life member of the Kinsmen Club, K-40 Club and Royal Canadian Legion Galt Branch No. 121. At one time, he was a member of the Galt Curling Club. While living in Florida, he applied his curling skills and became an accomplished shuffler and played on the ProAm Seniors' circuit. Jim enjoyed spending time with his family and was always ready to win a game of cards. Quite often Jim talked about the many blessings in his life. Those who loved him felt very blessed indeed. He will be remembered by many nieces and nephews; his brother-in-law, Roy Kibble and his wife Margaret; his sisters-in-law, Doris Harvie, and Joan Stahlbaum and her husband Wilfred. He will look forward to playing cribbage with his brother-in-law, Howard Harvie and sister-in-law, Audrey Husak who predeceased him. Jim will be buried in Mount View Cemetery near his parents and his wife's parents, Alfred and Alice Kibble. His minister, Rev. Deacon Karen Kovats will officiate at Jim's funeral service at St. Thomas the Apostle Anglican Church, 110 Francis Street, Cambridge, on Thursday, January 15, 2009 at one o'clock.

30069 William Tutte, 84, Mathematician and Code-breaker, Dies

By WOLFGANG SAXON
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.

UW names street after Bletchley Park code-breaker
Waterloo Region Record
By Catherine Thompson
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.

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

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.

New Hamburg Independent 12 Feb 1892 pg 3

__________________

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.

30082 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

30117 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,

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.

30129 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

30132 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

30133 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

30135 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

30138 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

Elton is not sure how dad made the trip every day from Elmira to Kitchener but claims that within a year they moved to Benton St. S. near the old creek. in Kitchener. While here their back yard almost touched that of Isaac Umbach who lived behind them on Mitchell st. Kitchener which street ran off Queen st. S. almost into their back door. It was here that Reta was born. Shortly after they moved to the South end of Peter St.and then to the Alexander Hotel in Waterloo, which stood on the corner of William and King st (N. East) where there is now a doughnut shop. It is not known how long they stayed here before moving to 51 Domimion St. just east of the Tire factory where Elton thinks both Milton and Elmer were born. He feels that they were here for some time and then they were moved to 171 Strange st. right beside the factory where dad could be on call every minute of the day. It was a solid two story home with a double porch on the front( up and down) and a large maple tree on the front lawn.This tree was used extensively to tie the small kids to to keep them from running away. Lloyd, Lorne and Harold were born here. We lived here till dad died when we moved to the south end of Strange St. besides the Kitchener Water works, where we stayed till Lorne was about 26 or 27.1a

30155 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.

30223 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

30228 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

30229 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

30230 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.

30233 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

30234 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

30246 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

30261 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

30272 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

30275 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.

30276 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

30292 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

30324 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"

30353 "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

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.
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
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
Like the hair on his head, he's come out on top!
Let's crow him with honor, this miller of note
Of whom critics have criticked their criticisms wrote
Extend the glad hand of the teller so wise
Who will wear a hat strictly normal in size
Let us wish him long life in this land of his birth,


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

______________________

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

30367 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.

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.

30369 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

30373 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.

30391 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.

30418 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

It is with deep sorrow that we have to report the death of Mr. Jacob Wagler, who died on Tuesday, the 5th inst. at 5 o'clock in the morning. The funeral took place on Thursday morning at 9, and was well attended. Mr. Wagler was the first Amish settler in this community and was a man highly respected by all who came in contact with him. Many a weary traveller found shelter under his roof and he always was kind to them. No doubt he will be much missed. The sympathy of the community goes out to the bereaved family in this their sad affliction.1a

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.

30518 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
 
30519 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

Boil 1 pint of green peas until tender, then remove from the stove. Have ready 1 egg beaten into 1 pint sweet cream or milk, stir into the peas, then add a piece of butter the size of a walnut, a little parsley chopped fine, salt and pepper, put back on stove, stir (so the egg does not curdle) until the mixture comes to a boil. Mashing the peas through a sieve improves the soup.1a

30541 There is confusion concerning Henry and his two families. There appears to be a mix up as the children born to the two wives are happening at the same time. More research is needed to clarify. Heinrich "Henry" Wahl
 
30542 Wahl.-Bro. Henry Wahl was born on Oct. 10, 1840; was married to Widow Sarah Bingiman of Breslau; died near Breslau, Ont., Feb. 24, 1905, aged 64 Y., 4 M., 14 D. To this union were born two sons and four daughters, all of whom reside in Waterloo County and who, with their mother, remain to mourn their sudden bereavement, but not as those who have no hope. Death was due to heart failure. Deceased was a member of the Mennonite church, had been assistant Sunday school superintendent and also superintendent on various occasions, and was also "district man" in the Aid Union for the adjustment of losses by fire among the brotherhood. His remains were buried in the Cressman church cemetery on the 26th of February. The house was crowded with relatives, friends and acquaintances who had met to pay their tribute of respect to the departed brother and of sympathy to the bereaved family. May the God of all comfort and consolation ever be near the bereaved ones to bless and to comfort and guide, as he has promised to be a very present help in time of need. Funeral services were conducted by Bish. Jonas B. Snider in German (text, Matt. 24: 44) and by Pre. J. S.Woolner in English (text, Jas. 4:14 and Eph. 5:151a

30551 An enterprising young German came here [Preston] about 1838 by name of Mr. Jacob Beck. He had invented a peculiar kind of water-wheel, small in size but of great power, and its use in several small water powers gave young Mr. Beck quite a reputation. He commenced a small foundry near a saw-mill in the village of New Hope, and finding considerable encouragement came to Preston, where he erected a foundry upon the premises now owned by Peter E. Shantz in Fountain Street. Business increased rapidly, but unfortunately a fire broke out which completely destroyed his flourishing foundry and Mr. Beck, no insurance having been effected, stood once more poor and penniless; but, thanks to the liberality of his neighbors in and around Preston, a subscription was raised, men turned out to help with work and material and in a short time after the fire, Mr. Beck was again in possession of a foundry of considerably larger dimensions than the one destroyed by fire. He did an excellent business, and had men selling his stoves and other wares over a large part of Western Ontario. His means increased at a rapid rate, and he enlarged his premises according to the wants of his business. Some years later he took in as partners two of the young men in his employ, viz: John Clare and Valentine Wahn, and the foundry business continued to prosper for several years. Mr. Beck had in the meantime arranged with Mr. Robert Hunt of the Woolen Mills to improve his water power by heightening the dam and digging a canal from the dam alongside the (Speed River. This canal is still in existence except a small portion of its terminus which has recently been closed. Mr. Beck for the construction of the said canal obtained the privilege of erecting a saw-mill upon Mr. Hunt's premises. This saw-mill Mr. Beck carried on for some time but seeing that a grand scheme that he had in mind could not be carried out, he sold his sawmill to Messrs. Hunt & Elliott. This grand scheme was nothing less than extending the said canal, crossing King Street and Queen Street and erecting along the canal a number of factories and mills. The proprietor of the land positively refused to grant permission to construct such a canal and Mr. Beck was forced to abandon his cherished plan of making Preston a great manufacturing place, such as the Town of Galt is at the present day. Mr. Beck, notwithstanding the good business done in his foundry, became displeased with Preston. The partnership of Beck, Clare & Wahn was abruptly dissolved, the business closed and the affairs of the firm wound up. Each partner obtained his proper share of the assets, which were largely in excess of the liabilities, Mr. Clare a store and other property and Jacob Beck a large sum of money. He went in search of a mill property which he found in Wilmot. There he erected mills, foundry and other industries, and founded a village which he named Baden. The grist-mill built by him was the third grist-mill built with money earned in Preston. 1a

VALENTINE WAHN

c.1820-1883

Valentine Wahn was a native of Oberaula, Hessen, Germany. It is uncertain when he immigrated to Preston but it was probable that he was among the wave of German immigrants who arrived in the area in the 1830's. In the early 1850's Mr. Wahn, along with John Clare, was taken into partnership by Jacob Beck in ownership of an iron foundry that Mr. Beck had started in 1839. Mr. Beck became disenchanted with business prospects in Preston and, in 1856, dissolved the partnership. He left Preston for a mill site in Wilmot township where he founded the town of Baden. It appears that Mr. Wahn then took control of the foundry which continued to do a prosperous business producing cast iron stoves. In 1875 the factory site was purchased by Abram Z. Detweiler and Peter E. Shantz who then formed the Preston Agricultural Works, later the P. E. Shantz Foundry. Mr. Wahn died on April 8, 1883 and is buried in the Preston Cemetery.

30555 THE TED WAKE LOUNGE

The Ted Wake Lounge Senior Centre is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and in honour of the occasion Hespeler Happenings is publishing this biography by Jim Quantrell, City archivist from his book "Cambridge Mosaic".

GEORGE E. "TED" WAKE 1910-1988

Married: Dorothy Hogg - 1940 George Edward "Ted" Wake was born in Toronto on September 11, 1910, the second son of George Edward and Mary Wake. After his father died when he was twelve, Mr. Wake worked as a delivery boy at a drug store and was later apprenticed to the printing trade at the Grimsby Independent, a weekly newspaper. For four years he worked at a variety of weekly newspapers learning the work of the pressman, compositor, writer and linotype operator.

Then, in 1928, he took a job as a spare linotype operator with the Toronto Star. Uncertain of his prospects at the "Star" and disenchanted with big city life, he answered an advertisement for help at Progress Printing in Preston and moved there in November 1928. He remained in Preston until 1940 when he enlisted with the Canadian Army Engineers. After serving in Europe for the duration of the war he returned to Canada and, with his wife, settled in Hespeler where he worked for a while at the Hespeler Herald.

Together with Hespeler Herald editor Treve James, Mr. Wake formed a partnership and started T and T Press in 1946. When Mr. James entered the Anglican ministry a short time later, Mr. Wake took full control of the company. He moved the business twice before settling at 412 Queen Street West. Mr. Wake entered politics in 1950 when he won a seat on the Waterloo Township School Board. He was returned by acclamation in the following election and was chosen Chairman of the School Board. He also served as a member of the Hespeler Hydro Electric Commission and it was while he was serving as Chairman of the Commission in 1965 that a group of citizens approached him with the proposal that he run for mayor. He announced his candidacy on November 17, 1965 and when no one came forward to challenge him, Mr. Wake became Hespeler's mayor unopposed. Following his initial victory, he was acclaimed to the mayor's office on a further three occasions thus becoming the last mayor of Hespeler before that town became a part of Cambridge in 1973.

Mr. Wake is credited with spearheading an economic resurgence of the community, transforming Hespeler from what has been described as a lethargic community to a "thriving, prosperous, industrial and commercial municipality of distinction". He has been described as "a man totally dedicated to his job and fiercely loyal to the Town of Hespeler" who "directed a course of events that made abrupt and sweeping changes in Hespeler". By the mid - 1960's it was impossible to even consider growth without an expansion of Hespeler's sewage treatment facilities. One of Mayor Wake's first acts upon taking office in January 1966 was to petition provincial authorities to install a new sewage disposal plant. An agreement wasn't signed until 1970 but the plant provided the basis for new development. One of the largest issues to face Mayor Wake and his council was the implementation of regional government. He realized that changes were required in the old county system and that restructuring in some form was essential. He objected strongly to the form that restructuring took, particularly the amalgamation of Hespeler with Galt and Preston. The reason was Hespeler's sound financial footing. Five years of "pay-as-you-go" planning had provided Hespeler with a reasonable tax rate and only a minor debt load which was the result, in most cases, of paying cash for work done rather than issuing debentures. Mayor Wake was convinced that amalgamation would only add to the debt load of Hespeler's taxpayers. When it became evident that the amalgamation of Galt, Preston and Hespeler was inevitable he bowed gracefully and urged his supporters to "throw away the crying towels and let's get behind the new community".

When Hespeler became part of Cambridge in January 1973, Mr. Wake left politics to return to private life. He died in his 78th year on January 31, 1988 and is buried in New Hope Cemetery.

Editor's note: In speaking with Mr. Fred Stewart, Hespeler's last Police Chief, I mentioned this article. Fred quickly responded that in his opinion, Ted Wake was the best Hespeler Mayor he had served under. Fred stated that Mayor Wake wanted to see the Town Departments perform at their top level and did his best to "provide the equipment necessary to get the job done."1a

House, H. Walder, Jr. proprietor, Stanley Street - The town of Ayr is happily well supplied with hotel accommodation; indeed, in this respect it will compare most favorably with the large cities of the Dominion. The finest hotel in Ayr is the Hilborn House, of which Mr. H. Walder, Jr. , is the proprietor. It is most eligibly located, being right in the heart of the town; it is a substantial brick structure, and is equipped with all modern appliances and accommodations of a first-class hotel. It contains 27 bedrooms, fitted up in the most approved manner, three parlors, which are models of their kind; there are also two sample rooms, a smoking and reading room, and a bar which is always supplied with choice liquors and cigars. During the cold season of the year the house is comfortably heated throughout and the rooms are always well ventilated, and the house is provided with all modern conveniences. In connection with the hotel are boarding and livery stables, and there is also a bus for all trains. Mr. Walder, the proprietor, is late of Berlin, having recently acquired the Hilborn House. He is a competent and experienced hotel keeper, and understanding the wants of the public, is deserving of the large patronage he already enjoys.1a

30576 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

30585 Her grandparents settled in Hamilton when it was just a mudhole. The courthouse there was built with bricks her grandfather made. He also had a grist mill at Dundas and operated three routes by team to Goderich with supplies. One team came through the Beverly swamp on the corduroy road. She recalls that the people in the Puslinch area were very poor, often having to plant potato peelings for potato seed. The story is told of a Puslinch woman who walked to her Grandfather Walker's mill for 25c worth of flour. The mill had closed on Saturday night when she arrived. Regulations were very strict at that time and a serious fine was imposed on anyone who sold anything between closing hours Saturday and Sunday midnight. The woman pleaded to be served so that she could start the long walk back to her starving family. However, Grandfather Walker promised that he would load his wagon at midnight Sunday so that she could ride to Preston on it and be home just as quickly. When she got off the wagon at Preston she was given as much as she could carry in her arms as she walked the remainder of the way home to Puslinch.

30587 Death of Mr. John Walker.

Just as our last week's issue had left the press, the intelligence reached us that Mr. John Walker, one of Floradale's most popular and enterprising business men and County Commissioner for the Village of Elmira and the surrounding township of Woolwich, had suddenly died in a lane near his house on his way home from the postoffice. Words of pleasantry exchanged with a few neighbors had scarcely died off his lips, when he realed [sic] and fell lifeless to the ground. Heart failure proved to have been the cause of his death.

Mr. Walker was a man of considerable individuality, was generous hearted, intelligent, popular and public spirited, and his business interests, in company with Mr. Perine, of Doon, were of great importance to the prospering village which now so keenly feels his loss. He was a native of England and came to this country with his father when yet quite young. The family settled at Doon, where Mr. Walker became connected with the flax and twine industry of the late Mr. M. B. Perine. Later he was commissioned to open a branch factory at Floradale, and on the demise of the elder Mr. Perine, became a partner of the firm of Perine & Walker, the other partner being Mr. Ed. Perine of Doon. Deceased was a prominent society man having been a member of the I. O. F., Floradale, I. O. O. F. And Royal Arcanum lodges of Elmira. Representatives of these and neighboring lodges attended his funeral in a body, Rev. Leibold performing religious service at the house and at the grave. Rev. Hamilton who had just returned from a visit to his mother, preached the funeral sermon. He leaves a wife - his second wife - and six children to mourn the loss of a kind husband and father. He had reached the age of 49 years, 3 months and 7 days.

His remains were brought to the Elmira Union Cemetery on Friday afternoon, followed by a cortege of one hundred carriages occupied by relatives, friends and neighbors, who thus paid their last respect to his memory.

Writing editorially, of Mr. Walker's death, the Berlin News Record says: -
Following so closely the tragedy at Breslau, whereby County Councillor Shaw lost his life, the sudden death of Representative John Walker in Floradale last Wednesday evening has caused widespread consternation and sorrow. As Mr. Shaw was one of the brightest minds sent to the County Board from the South, Mr. Walker was his counterpart from the North, and his sudden taking off is a severe loss to this County and the village of Floradale.

Mr. Walker was a member of the Floradale Flax Co., in which Mr. E. Perine, of Doon, was associated with him, and was a level headed, capable business man. He went to Floradale from Doon about fifteen years ago and met success from the outset. His father, Mr. James Walker of Doon, is one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens there.

County Representative Walker was of English descent - one of those frank open hearted men, whose word was a sure token of performance and who did the square thing in business and everyday life. In words he was sparing being not given to easy speech, but was a thinker and a doer. Straightforward, honorable and hospitable, he made warm friends on every hand, and once known his good judgement and fairness won the trust and esteem of his neighbors and the public.

For a considerable time he served the Township of Woolwich as a representative of the Municipality, for a number of years as a Councillor and later as its Reeve and finally as its representative to the County Council. Mr. Walker, as is well known, was a staunch Conservative, and Woolwich leans the opposite way, hence his preferment and promotion in the world of municipal affairs, speaks highly as to his worth and the confidence he created.

He is gone and North Waterloo has lost a good and useful citizen. His death will be mourned by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, who sincerely admired his genial, manly manner and character.

30598 Atribute to a local environmentalist and well-known Southwood Secondary School teacher has been taken from the rare Charitable Research Reserve, near Blair. When Tim Walker died in 2006 of a congenital heart defect, his family and friends created a permanent memorial to him at rare, where he had played as a child and helped to establish an environmental educational program as an adult. Along with donations in his name to the charitable research reserve, they established the Tim Walker Memorial Award for environmental stewardship for high schools students, planted a Bur Oak and located a park bench and plaque in a prominent location. Now, the bench, which had been painted by Walker's mother, and its plaque have been taken. "Is nothing sacred anymore?" said rare executive director Patti Leather in a statement. "There is a lot of meaning in that bench for the community. It was hand-built to honour Tim and many people have stopped to rest and admire the native trees and Tim's contribution to saving this land for us all. "We'd be happy to have it back - no questions asked. And, of course, if that doesn't happen, we'll find a way to replace and secure it." Tim C. Walker

30601 South Water Street Baptist, First Baptist, Avenue Road Baptist Churches

According to Cant (1915:67), "About 1850 or 1851 the colored people in the village of Galt, who were Baptists, held their services in a house on King Street." The services were eventually discontinued. Some years later the Baptist organization held meetings in the same building on King Street, and were "regularly organized" (Ibid.). This was the early Baptist Church shown on Pollock's 1867 Map of Galt on King Street near Queen Street. Later services were held in the Methodist New Connexion Church. The Canadian Baptist July 21, 1870, (pg. 2) reported that the [Church] Council had met July 5, 1870 to consider organizing a Baptist congregation in Galt. The "newly formed church" had 14 members.
A Baptist Church was organized in 1876 by Dr. Thomas Leslie Davidson from the Guelph Baptist Church, and services were held in a number of downtown locations until a small building was erected in 1878 at the corner of South Water and Chapman Streets, and opened for worship on Sunday, October 6, 1878. Rev. Robert Clark was ordained pastor of the congregation the next day, October 7, 1878. This small church was replaced by a newer, larger one on the same site in 1886. The cornerstone for the new church was laid on August 5, 1886, with Rev. Dr. Castle, Principal of McMaster Hall, Toronto, officiating. Opening services in the new brick church were held on February 6, 1887; Rev. Dr. Castle preached at the morning service. An auditorium was built in the next year. Early pastors were Rev. Thomas Baldwin (1876-1878) and Rev. William S. Walker (1879-1888).
The church was known as South Water Street Baptist until August 7, 1955 when the name was changed to First Baptist Church by unanimous vote of the congregation. A new Christian Education wing was opened and dedicated the next year, on April 5, 1956.
On May 26, 1978 First Baptist and Delta Park Baptist churches voted to amalgamate effective July 1, 1978, and to relocate to a new facility when finances permitted. The two congregations continued to meet as one in the Water Street South building with the name of First Delta Baptist Church. The Water Street South property was sold to the City of Cambridge in November 1982 and the congregation then met in Avenue Road School. A sod turning ceremony was held in February 1983 and the congregation moved into the new building in November of that same year. The official opening and dedication service was held in January 1984.
A Sunday School Mission, which was to become Delta Park Baptist Church, was opened July 1, 1909 in a building on North Water Street. The mission became a church in 1919 with the name of Bremner Baptist Church until 1943 when Rev. W.F. Bremner, for whom the church was named, died. The church was renamed Delta Park Baptist Church at that time.1

How The Vickerage Got its Name

The spelling of the name of the house reflects its builder as you will see from the following history. Lot 146, the land where the houses known as 86 and 90 Moir Street now stand, was first recorded in 1859, owned by Charles Allan of Elmira. It appears to be one of about 25 lots he owned. The Lot seems to have been vacant, at least with no dwelling, until after his death in 1868. At that point, Charles Scott made an agreement with Grace Walmsley, Charles Allan's daughter, and her husband David Lewis Walmsley, to purchase Lot 146 for $180 to be paid over a period of four years. It would appear that Charles Scott did not meet his obligation because, in 1872, Thomas Vickers purchased Lot 146 from the Walmsleys for $175. Through the 1870s, Vickers acquired other lots around the original lot. Was there already a building on that lot in 1872? We don't know that yet and we may never know. The assessment records for the years between 1868 and 1890 were lost and the deeds are very hard to read.2a

30639 Death of Mr. A. Walper

Passed Away Suddenly To-day
CAME HERE FROM GERMANY OVER, 50 YEARS AGO.


Our readers will regret to learn that Mr. Abel Walper passed away suddenly about ten o'clock this morning, of heart failure. He had been unwell for some years. his failing health being partly the cause of his retirement from hotel business. During the past winter he had been rather healthier than before, but for four weeks past he was not so well. He passed a bad night Tuesday. but no serious results were anticipated and his sudden demise makes the blow all the harder.

The funeral will likely be held on Friday, but the hour has not been decided upon. The deceased was born on May 10, 71 years ago, in Grosherzogthun, Hesse, Darmstadt, Germany, and came to Berlin at the age of fourteen years, along with the late Mr. Boecking.
He was married about 47 years ago and is survived by. a widow and family of six children; C. H. in Detroit; Levi, London; Louis, Drayton; Misses Kate, Mary and Lottie, at home.

The deceased had been a resident of the county fur nearly his whole lifetime, and the Walper block, Berlin, is a monument to his enterprise. He was a member of St. Peter's Lutheran church; a kind father and husband; an honored, useful citizen, who enjoyed the respect of the people generally. The News-Record extends its condolences to the members of the bereaved family.

30649 Death of Ferdinand Walter

The death took place at Kitchener last Friday evening of one of Waterloo County's oldest residents, Ferdinand Walter, after an illness of about two weeks. Deceased was in his 91st year. The late Mr. Walter was born in Seekat, Baden, Germany, on March 18th, 1830. He emigrated to America in the year 1849 and settled on a farm near Bamberg. He also conducted a general store at Bamberg. He took a keen interest in municipal and political affairs and was a member of the Wellesley Township Council for forty-two years and a member of the County Council for forty years, during which time he was thrice Warden of the County. In politics he was a strong conservative and in 1873 contested the riding of North Waterloo for the Dominion House but was unsuccessful. He removed to Kitchener sixteen years ago and in 1905 was appointed license inspector, which office he held until 1916, after which he retired. He was married in 1856 to Agatha Dietrich, who passed away about seven years ago. He is survived by two sons and four daughters, namely, John Walter, New Westminster, B. C., Robert of Toronto, Mrs. John Gies, Heidelberg, Mrs. Anthony Starr, Bamberg, Mrs. Jacob Martini, Toronto, and Mrs. Rose Hummel, of Kitchener. The funeral took place on Monday forenoon to the R. C. Cemetery at St. Agatha and was largely attended. High Mass was conducted by Rev. Fathers, Fehrenbach. Schweitzcr, Spetz and Wey.

St. Agatha Church

To the side altars a high altar was soon added. Antony Kaiser II., and Lucas Dorschel made all the altars, and Mr. Ferdinand Walter and his brother painted and decorated them in 1851 quite artistically. Mr. Walter still expresses his admiration for the Fathers whose life and works he could watch closely while lodging with them when finishing the altars. He had grown up during the turbulent years of the 40 's in Baden and was to some extent imbued with the anti-Catholic and free notions of his time. He had never before seen a live Jesuit, Avho was the most hated and reviled being at that time. On acquaintance with them he found that they were pious to a degree, learned, immensely laborious and extremely kind. 1a

30650 Originator of Wood Fibre Ornaments
The recent sudden death of J. Walter, president of J. Walter & Sons, Ltd., Kitchener, Ont., recalls the fact that Mr. Walter was the originator of wood fibre ornaments which his company made for furniture manufacturers to use in decorating their furniture lines. Mr. Walter was originally a sculptor receiving his art training in German and French schools, and his work may be seen in a number of churches in the United States. It was while working at this that he conceived the idea of making furniture trimmings. That was twenty years ago, and after spending much time and money in experiments perfected the present invention. The late Mr. Walter was the first man to imitate the grain of wood by casting a plaster Paris composition in rubber moulds. By improving and developing the method of casting these wood fibre ornaments the result has been that the Walter products reached very near perfection and his ornaments were in demand all over this continent; in South America, South Africa and Europe

30666 DEATH OF WM. WALTON

Although but a short time a resident here, this young man made many friends while here, and the news of his death, which occurred at Wellesley last week, was received with feelings of deep regret, as he was a great favorite with all the young people who extend their sympathy to the parents, who reside at Strathroy.

Wambold, Abram H. (1857-1934)

Abram H. Wambold: deacon of the Mount View Mennonite Church near High River, Alberta, and of the West Zion Mennonite Church near Carstairs, Alberta, was born 20 November 1857 in Waterloo County, Ontario, and died at his home near Carstairs, Alberta, on 8 May 1934. He married Angeline Erb on 19 February 1884. They were the parents of nine children. Angeline died in 1913, and Abram Wambold married Elizabeth Shantz, the widow of Bishop Israel Shantz , on 17 March 1915. After Abram Wambold's death in 1934, Elizabeth married her third husband, Joe Weber.
The Wambold family came west in April 1901 and settled on a homestead which was a considerable distance from High River, but very close to a railway built from Calgary to Lethbridge in 1911 which resulted in establishment of the new towns of Aldersyde and Mazeppa - the latter directly south of their house. The Wambolds, in spite of the distance involved, were among those who formed the Mount View Mennonite Church near High River later in 1901. After the organizational meeting of the new congregation, Abram Wambold was chosen, by lot, and ordained as Deacon. Abram and Angeline Wambold's home was always open to other pioneers coming into the district. That spirit of hospitality was interrupted by Angeline's death in 1913, but restored after Abram's second marriage to Elizabeth Shantz. Together they faithfully discharged the responsibilities incumbent on the office of Deacon, but declining membership, economic hardships, and Elizabeth's links to the West Zion Mennonite Church near Carstairs, resulted in a move to Carstairs in 1924 or perhaps in 1925. They continued to serve as deacons in that congregation until the time of Abram Wambold's death in 1934. 2a

He was married to Angeline Erb Feb. 19, 1884. To this union 9 children were born, 7 of whom survive. His wife died in 1913. They had come to the West in 1900 and were among those who formed the first Mennonite church near Aldersyde, Alta. Bro. Wambold served as deacon for this congregation for many years. He also served as conference secretary in the early years of the conference. He was married to Elizabeth Shantz March 17, 1915, who is left to mourn. Besides his 7 children there were 7 step-children who mourn the loss of a father. He was ill only a few days and fell asleep in Jesus quietly. From his testimony we need not mourn as those who have no hope. Funeral services were held at the Carstairs church on the 9th, Bro. H. J. Harder in charge. Text: "I have fought a good fight." On the 10th services were held at the Aldersyde church, with Bro. I. Miller in charge and there the body was laid to rest in the family plot.3a

30672 Wambold.-On the 22d of March, in Waterloo Co., Ont., Herbert Newton H., son of Isaac A. and Emma M. Wambold, aged 11 months and 26 days. Funeral services by Moses Bowman in German from Psa. 16:6, "The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places: yea, I have a goodly heritage." and by Daniel Wismer in English, from the words, "Be ye also ready." Dear little Herbie had always been a bright and hearty boy, but was snatched away from our arms in a few short hours. In the evening, when his mamma had made him ready to sleep, he stretched his little arms to papa to be taken snugly to bed; but before midnight he lay in convulsions, which were followed by others and in about nine hours death released him.
"Dearest Herbie, thou has left us,
Here thy loss we deeply feel;
But 'tis God who has bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
Yet again we hope to meet thee,
When the day of life has fled,
Then with joy in heaven to greet thee,
Where no farewell tear is shed."

Breslau (Cressman) Mennonite Church

Services were begun in Breslau in 1815. In 1834, Benjamin Eby's log meeting house, which had been built in Berlin in 1813, was moved to Breslau to the Cressman farm. Preaching services which were held every four weeks began in the reconstructed meeting house in 1837. A new brick church was built in 1856, at which time the old log meeting house was moved to Frederick Schaefer's brickyard. The old building may have been used for storage or an office until approximately 1880 when it was clad with white "Breslau Brick" from the brickyard, and used as a home by Frederick Schaefer and his family. The address of the house is reported to have been 18 Woolwich Street; it was still standing in 1985, according to Alder 1985, with the original log walls possibly preserved within the brick ones.

A summer Sunday School was begun in June of 1872. It was held in the Breslau schoolhouse until 1877 when it was moved to the church. Sunday School continued on in the summers only until 1889 when Sunday School classes began to be held all year.

The 1856 white brick church was taken down in March 1908, and was replaced with a new white brick church. In 1968 the name of the church was changed from Cressman Mennonite Church to Breslau Mennonite Church. Major renovations were made to the church in the same year. It is of interest to know that land amounting to approximately three acres was deeded to the congregation by Christian C. Snyder in three parcels, in 1837, 1859, and 1870.

Joseph Hagey, the first minister at Cressman's, was ordained on February 10, 1839. He was ordained bishop in 1851. Ministers who followed him in serving the church at Breslau were Jacob Woolner Sr., Elias Weber, Isaac A. Wambold, Jacob S. Woolner, and Oscar Burkholder. Services were held every four weeks from 1837-1867, and bi-weekly from 1867-1894 when weekly services were begun2a

Wanner Mennonite Church
Begun: 1829

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

30749 'Unprecedented' heritage project sees century-old slate roof replaced

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

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

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

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

30756 Victoria Ward was either born in Virginia or Canada, about 1849 (see Notes below). She may have been the daughter of slaves in Virginia, who later escaped to Canada.

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

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

Victoria worked as a hairdresser, and later a dressmaker.

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

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

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

______________________________________


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

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

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

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

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

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

30760 JOHN WARDLAW

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

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

SCRAPED BEEF

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

ADAM WARNOCK


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

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

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

30792 Amelia Beers Warnock was born into a family of prominence but made her own distinct mark in Canada. Taking as her nom-de-plume Katherine Hale, her mother's given names, she was a journalist, poet, essayist, music critic, recitalist and lecturer. Her books of poetry were highly acclaimed, and her books of travel observations, historic houses and cities of Canada were well regarded and serve now as poignant views of developing Canadian identity in the first half of the 20th century. As Hale noted: "My country has never become to me a place I'm just used to, but one full of hidden surprises that I'm always wanting to explore.

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

30795 MR. JAMES WARNOCK was one of the leading business men of the town of Galt A man of large intelligence and great enterprize. A man of principle and sterling integrity. A man whose word was his bond. A strong-minded man, strong at both poles in his loves and in his aversions. He was upright, honest, honorable a man to be relied on. His life was preeminently a business life. But passing beyond that into the sacred circle of the home, where the tender, sweet, fragrant graces grow, there he was most kind, loving, sympathetic He was a devoted husband and a loving father. One who was at rest in the bosom of his family, finding there the highest earthly satisfaction. He was a true, staunch friend. He had a high esteem of my predecessor, Mr. Bentley, and his friendship for him continued to the end. He had been bred up to a respect for God's house, and a reverence for His law, and he was constant in his attendance on the Sabbath services. He thought more and felt more of religion than he expressed in words. He belonged to the old school, who were reticent and who thought these things were not for public talk, but for private and personal enjoyment.

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

" O God, our help in ages past,

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

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

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