30005 COAT USED AT HISTORIC BALL BEFORE WATERLOO

Surgical Instruments Used at Historic Battle Also Owned By Mrs. Herald


Most people in public school days have read the historic poem on the battle of Waterloo and thrilled to the motion and the swift movement of events there portrayed, from the brilliant hall with "its sound of revelry by night,' when "a thousand hearts neat happily." to the sound of the cannon, "the sudden partings." the `choking sighs," "the marshalling of arms" and "battle's stern array,' but to the reader it seems a far-on thing, ancient history long past.

It is when one sees some object connected with those events that they assume a new realism. Mrs. John Herald, of this city, is the fortunate possessor of some valuable relics of the historic battle of Waterloo, which are very interesting. There is a blue coat worn by her grandfather, the late John Sydney-Smith, at the Duchess of Richmond's historic ball at Brussels, from which the valiant officers of Wellington's army were called to the decisive battle at Waterloo, and there is a box of instruments used on the battlefield by her grandfather, who was a surgeon on the staff of the Duke of Wellington.

Short of waist and tight of sleeve is the coat, with velvet collar and handsome buttons of shining gold. which must have been very picturesque in those days, worn with its kerchief of point lace as a cravat. The surgical instruments with saws and knives neatly packed in the compact plush-lined case, have taken part in many a drama of life, but probably none more thrilling than when they sped to the battlefield at Waterloo in the hands of the skilful surgeon who was the personal friend of the Duke on whose staff he served. The passport of the surgeon is also with the case. dated February, 1815. and issued by Lord Fitz-Roy Somerset.

Mr. Sydney-Smith. who was a cousin of the Sir Sydney-Smith well-known in history, was a resident of Brighton at the time of the war in France, but shortly after its conclusion, he came to this continent with his wife and family, settling after a few months at Toronto. Not many years later, the cholera epidemic claimed him as one of 118 many victims and he is buried under St. James' Cathedral in that city.

Another interesting costume in Mrs. Herald's heirloom collection is a beautiful white silk gown which was part of the trousseau of her grandmother in 1810. With its embroidered hem within an inch of the floor, the skirt falls straight front a narrow, low-cut bodice over which lace was worn. It has little puff sleeves, and over all as worn an ex-quisitely fine shawl with deep pattern at the hem in soft shades.1a

'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....

One afternoon, on seeing Mr. Bindemann riding in, he said to several customers at his store-door, "Stay, and we'll have some fun with the preacher." When the rider reached the store, Tagge droned, "How is it, Pastor, that you must have a grand white horse when our Saviour was content to ride about on a humble ass?"

30042 CANADA DRIVES OUT 2 LUTHERAN PASTORS;

The Rev. C.R. Tappert of Berlin, Ont., Ill-Treated by Soldiers and Leaves Town. REV. HANSEN ALSO GOING

Lieut. Col. Martin Apologizes to Our Consul, as Tappert Is American Citizen.

BERLIN, Ont., March 8. -- With one local minister of the Lutheran Church, who is an American, an exile from Canada, driven out, as he Charges, by volunteer troops after indignities, and another minister of the same denomination under orders to resign his pulpit and depart at once, a long-standing feeling between the ministers and members of their congregations on one hand and the Dominion military and police authorities on the other reached a culmination

The Rev. R. C. Tappert. pastor of the Lutheran Church, has gone to Buffalo with his family, a wife and nine children. Before he left the country he laid formal complaint against local members of the 118th Battalion, Canadian volunteer contingent. before Jose de Olivares, United States Consul in Hamilton, Ontario.

Hardly had the feeling incident to a demonstration against the Rev. Mr. Tappert in front of his parsonage on Sunday night been allayed than a new development occurred, when the Rev. Henry Hansen. pastor of the Constego Lutheran Church. was likewise ordered to depart. The issuance of the order came quickly after a special agent of the Canadian police had called on him.

Both ministers, the authorities assert, have been avowed advocates of certain rights which they say are possessed by pro-German members of their denomination in Canada. A feeling of bitterness has been engendered against them. it is stated. for a long time and this has been heightened as the sermons one or the other or both. were objected to by the civilian population and troops quartered here. The population of this city and its environs as its name indicates. Is composed in considerable proportions of descendants of native Germans

The charge against the Rev. Mr. Hansen is. he says. that he is pro-German, and has been circulating anti-Ally views. On behalf of the officers of the Berlin Overseas Battalion, Lieut. Col. Martin today apologized to Consul de Olivares at Hamilton for the treatment accorded
the Rev. Mr. Tappert at his home here Sunday evening. He said the men were severely rebuked. but as the demonstration was against a civilian, the military authorities were not in a position to try the offenders.

Lieut Col. Martin's apology followed a telephone message to Berlin, in which the Consul made emphatic protest against the attack on the Rev. Mr. Tappert, on the grounds that he was an American citizen, and that assurance had been given that he would not be harmed.

Mr. de Olivares Insisted that. the rights of an American citizen must not he violated. and it is said that he hits taken the matter up with Ottawa and Washington.

The Rev. Mr. Tappert told the Consul he had a wound in the back of his head requiring; several stitches and also a blackened eye and that his family had been ill treated. The soldiers went to the Tappert home. it is alleged. called the pastor out of his house. and beat him as a German sympathizer. because he had not left Canada on March 1 as advised to do so by townspeople.

The Rev. Reinhold C. Tappert reached Buffalo last night and from there sent this telegram to his brother, the Rev. Dr. G. H. Tappert. pastor of St. Paul's Lutheran Church at 794 East 156th Street, the Bronx:

Buffalo. N. Y.. March 8, 1916

Family arrived safely at Buffalo. Details later. You will be astounded. Samt Und Sunder - "the whole bunch.

REINHOLD.

All of the nine children of the exiled were born here. His oldest daughter. Miss Johanna Tappert, was educated at the Normal College, and
another daughter Miss Martha Tappert. was a student at Morris High School The Rev. Dr. Tappert came here and was ordained in and subsequently became a naturalized American. He was first the pastor of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church at Greenport, I. I., then for several years pastor of a Manhattan church. and for many years was pastor of the Emmanuel Lutheran Church at Meriden, Conn.

He received a call to Berlin, Ontario. three years ago and had since built a larger church to replace the old one there. His wife was Miss Magdalena Drach, daughter of Peter Drach of Greenport.

My brother has never, during his residence in Canada, caused offense by pro-German sentiments, expressed or implied," said the Rev. Dr. G. H. Tappert at his parsonage last night." is too conservative and too good' and loyal an American to do anything of that kind. In fact, he even has hesitated to assert his full rights as an American because he wished to refrain from involving this country officially in his personal troubles in Canada.

"I have not received full details of the trouble, but I know his difficulties began more than a year ago, when some of the newspapers in Canada begun to criticise him on the basis of a statement he was said to have made to some members of his congregation regarding alleged Belgian atrocities. My brother was asked by a member of his congregation if some features of the Belgian charges were true. He simply replied that he doubted the truth of some of them at least.

"From that time on the persecutions never have ceased. My niece, Johanna, applied for a position as teacher IN the Canadian public schools. Her training at Normal College was ignored, and she was required to take further studies in a Canadian school. Martha resumed her studies, also. in a high school. An envelope, which was handed to her for a subscription to the war fund, she returned empty, explaining that she was an American, and as a Daughter of a clergyman, she objected to contributing to war purposes. Thereupon the principal or the school called her an 'American parasite.'

"Then the boys, who were at school, were asked to swear allegiance to the British flag. 'This they said they could not do, being American by birth and education. In February this warning telephone message was given to my brother: " If you do not leave in forty days you will be tarred and feathered." THE BERLIN BOYS

"The Berlin Boys composed the battalion at the barracks there. Other warnings were received. some friendly and others threatening. Then members of the congregation reported that pressure was being exerted on them to get rid of their pastor. Some said they were boycotted in business and their social relations. Then my brother decided to resign, and had done so when he was attacked in his home.

"Seventy of the battalion members called at the parsonage at midnight on Sunday and called to him to come out. He declined. whereupon the front door of the parsonage was broken down and the place Invaded. When my brother confronted the intruders they seized him and dragged him outside, refusing his wife permission to give him a hat or overcoat.

"For some time the soldiers marched my brother up and down King Street. hitting and slapping hint Then they took him to the rear of the barracks, and ordered him to sing the English national hymn. When finally permitted to return home he found every member of his family prostrated with fear for his safety."1a

30043 Year and a half after his death, homeless man's body still waits for burial

KITCHENER - When we talk about final resting places, most of us think of a burial plot in a cemetery, a commemorative urn or ashes scattered at a meaningful place. But what about the basement of a funeral home? For some forgotten dead, that's exactly where they end up. They're stuck in limbo - either abandoned or overlooked by their next of kin. Martin Tarback, a well-known homeless man whose death in March 2009 drew hundreds to his memorial service, is one of them. A year and a half after the 41-year-old's death from cancer, Tarback's cremated remains are still at the Henry Walser Funeral Home - kept in a locked room while staff there wait on instructions from his sister.

Tarback's case is not unique, say people in the funeral business. Abandoned bodies are more common than you might think, and there are dozens of them at local funeral homes still waiting for a final resting spot. "You'd be surprised how common this is," said John McGlynn, a funeral director at the Henry Walser Funeral Home. "Martin's aren't the only ashes here at the funeral home that we've had for quite some time. There are other families in the same boat." Tarback's mother, Elly Alexander, wants to give her son a final resting place. But the law prevents her from doing that. "I'm sick to my stomach about it," she said. "I just want him to be buried so I can go and visit him. But he's still in a box on a shelf." Alexander doesn't have next of kin status for Tarback, so she can't tell the funeral home what she'd like done with his remains.1a

30049 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galt_Collegiate_Institute_and_Vocational_School William L. Tassie
 
30050 William Tassie, one of the most successful educators in Western Ontario, is a native of Dublin, Ireland, dating his birth May 10, 1815. His father, James Tassie, an Engineer and Contractor, descended from a Scotch family that went to Ireland about a century ago; and his mother, whose maiden name was Mary Stewart, was also a descendant of a family which made a similar migration a little earlier. She belonged to the Garth family.

Our subject spent his boyhood in study in his native city; in 1834 came with the family to Upper Canada, and taught and continued his studies at Oakville and Hamilton until 1853, when he settled in Galt and took charge of the Grammar School, which was some years later merged into a Collegiate Institute.

While at Hamilton, where he taught fourteen years, Mr. Tassie took up the studies laid down in the curriculum of the College and University of Toronto; passed terminal and annual examinations, and was graduated from that institution in 1855 as Bachelor of Arts, and in due course of time received the degree of Master of Arts. In 1871, Queen's University, Kingston, conferred upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws a distinction rarely granted by that institution.
Dr. Tassie has been at the head of the Collegiate Institute the oldest school of the kind in the Province since it was opened, and has built up an institution of unusual popularity and of high standing. Usually about three hundred students attend it annually. They come from every part of the Dominion of Canada, and from nearly every State in the American Union, including Texas at the extreme south, and Oregon on the Pacific Slope. In looking over the list of pupils, we notice that several of the leading men, particularly politicians in the several Provinces, send their sons here for their mental drill.

This school is well known, not only in Canada and the United States, but also in Great Britain, and not unknown on the Continent of Europe, parties from time to time writing to Dr. Tassie for situations as teachers, from Germany, France, and Switzerland.

The course of instruction in the Institute embraces the English, French, German, Latin and Greek Languages, History, Geography, English Composition, Bookkeeping, Arithmetic, Algebra, Physiology, Trigonometry, Use of Instruments, Chemistry, Natural Philosophy, Natural History, Mensuration, Geology, Music, Drawing, and Drill. Pupils are prepared for Competitive Examinations at the Universities, for the Law Society, the Medical Boards, the Army and Navy, the Civil Service, and for Mercantile pursuits.

Dr. Tassie has an extensive acquaintance among the leading men of all classes in the Dominion, and they thoroughly appreciate the noble work which, with the aid of a competent corps of masters, he is doing in a quiet way at Galt. The people of this town seem to appreciate the merits of the Institute, and are liberal in their patronage and very free in their commendations of its learned Principal.
The wife of Dr. Tassie was Miss Sarah Morgan, of Dublin, married in 1837. They have no family.1a

________________________________


TASSIE, WILLIAM, teacher and headmaster; b. 10 May 1815 in Dublin (Republic of Ireland), third of the eight children of James Tassie and Mary Stewart; m. in 1834 in Dublin Sarah Morgan, and they had no children; d. 21 Nov. 1886 at Peterborough, Ont.

William Tassie immigrated to Nelson Township in Upper Canada in 1834 with his wife, parents, brothers, and sisters. He taught briefly in Nelson Township before accepting a position at the first common school in Oakville. In 1839 Tassie went to the Gore District Grammar School at Hamilton as assistant master under John Rae*. In 1853 he moved to Galt (now part of Cambridge) where, as headmaster of the newly established Galt Grammar School, he built a national reputation for both himself and the school.

Under Tassie the enrolment in the school grew from 12 in 1853 to between 250 and 300 at the height of its fame in the 1860s. Four out of five boys who attended came from homes outside Galt: from across Canada, from the United States, and even from the West Indies. Tassie's role was similar to that of John Strachan* during his teaching career at Cornwall and York (Toronto) earlier in the century; the alumni of their schools later formed a large percentage of the élite in Upper Canada. Families such as the Tuppers, Blakes, Mowats, Oslers, Codys, Keefers, Cronyns, Becks, Carlings, Boultons, Cayleys, and Galts sent their sons to "Tassie's School."

Tassie was an "old school" educator who opposed coeducation, favoured a curriculum centred on the classics, was a strict disciplinarian, and preferred residential schooling where the boys could be under constant supervision (at times over 40 boys stayed in his own home). According to a former pupil, the headmaster had "the bearing and dignity of a field-marshal and the walk and tread of an emperor." Yet he was a dedicated, high-principled teacher who drove himself as well as others. Tassie's aloofness was balanced by his sincerity and the warmth of his wife's character. Left in a difficult financial situation after his death, she received a life annuity of $340 from the school's old boys.

By the 1870s educational reform in Upper Canada had led to a stress on practical rather than classical education. In 1871 the Galt Grammar School was the first school in the province to be named a collegiate institute, but the introduction of provincial examinations, especially the intermediate examination begun in June 1876, and a system of grants paid according to the results of these examinations, precipitated the decline of the school. Students, especially those who had to pass the intermediate examination to become teachers, began to turn elsewhere and by 1881 the annual enrolment at the school had fallen to 50 boys. Tassie, however, held that education was largely for the building of character and remained a firm believer in education for its own sake, in clear defiance of the mounting preference for more scientific and practical training. But when many of his students were unsuccessful in provincial examinations his entire system came under criticism and pressure mounted on him to change his methods or leave. Unwilling to abandon his principles, he chose the latter course and resigned in the spring of 1881 under a cloud of controversy. He was succeeded by John E. Bryant, principal of Pickering College.

That fall Tassie opened a private boarding-school in Yorkville (now part of Toronto) where he again emphasized the classics. In 1884, still refusing to adapt his ideas to the changing conditions, he returned to the public system by accepting an appointment as headmaster of the Peterborough Collegiate Institute where his talents were sought, according to Henry John Cody*,"to improve its discipline." Indeed enrolment did increase and one year later students and teachers were reported to be working harmoniously.

While an active teacher, Tassie had advanced his own educational qualifications. He had received a ba from the University of Toronto in 1856 and an ma two years later. In 1871 he was awarded an honorary lld from Queen's College in Kingston. Tassie had also served as president of the Ontario Grammar School Teachers' Association in 1869 and 1870 as well as in 1871 when it became the Ontario Grammar School Masters' Association.

On 21 Nov. 1886 Tassie suffered a fatal stroke. Tributes poured in but perhaps the most appropriate summary of his later years came from the Educational Weekly: "Doctor Tassie . . . belonged to a school of educators whose opinions and methods have had to succumb to newer educational ideals." By the last quarter of the century Tassie's educational methods were clearly outmoded.

Recollections of My Schooldays at Tassie's
By James E. Kerr, Galt

It was in August, 1859, that my father, who then lived in Doon, sent me a lad of twelve years, to the Grammar School at Galt. With the exception perhaps of Upper Canada College it was regarded as the best Preparatory School in the Province. This enviable reputation which it had acquired was entirely due to the merits of its headmaster, Mr William Tassie, an M. A. of Toronto University, and afterwards, in 1871, honored with the degree of LL.D., conferred upon him by Queen's College, Kingston. Mr. Tassie was Principal of the school for twenty-eight years.

During the Tassie regime the school was much more than a local institution, for thither came from all parts of Canada and even distant places in the United States boys whose parents were desirous that their sons should receive the best educational training then avail able. In order to accommodate this large influx of pupils the Head Master found room in his own house for about forty boys, and about fifty or sixty were placed in houses in the town.

During the four years of my attendance at the school I boarded in Dr.Tassie's house. Though one of the largest houses in the town, for forty boys the accommodation was somewhat limited. A play-room was much needed, but, as the necessity of such a room had not been foreseen when the house was planned, we were obliged to betake our selves to our bedrooms when the inclemency of the weather or other reasons prevented us from seeking recreation on the play-ground. The noise we made in our dormitories frequently brought us into trouble with Dr. Tassie, whom I am sure we very often disturbed, but who I think was not very severe with us considering the provocation we must have given him.

In Mrs. Tassie we found a never-failing friend. I shall never forget the kindness she showed to us, and I am glad that this opportunity is given me to pay this long-delayed tribute to her goodness of heart. When we were sick she nursed us with a mother's care. If we had coughs or colds she administered to us gruel or swathed our necks with hot cloths. To purify our blood she would dose us with sulphur and treacle. For every ailment she had some old-fashioned remedy. In person Mrs. Tassie was above the medium height and slight, the face pale, the hair dark, and the eyes black and piercing. Her voice was pleasant. She spoke with a slight brogue which betrayed her Irish birth. At nineteen she had married the handsome young teacher, who was the same age as herself, and sailed off with him to make her home in the wilds of Canada. Some people have said that it was a runaway match. I think this statement is not correct. At any rate the marriage turned out a happy one. Mrs. Tassie's maiden name was Sarah Morgan. She was a daughter of William Morgan, Dublin, and grand-daughter of Peter Burchell of Kilteel Castle, County Kildare. She died in Peterboro' in 1895.

At seven in the evening we were called in from our games to prepare the lessons for next day. I usually spent the larger part of my time puzzling out with the aid of a lexicon the twenty or thirty lines of Virgil or Horace which had been assigned for study. The translation was undertaken first, then the construction of the sentences, and lastly the division of the lines into metrical feet. Our translations were very bald and literal. Dr. Tassie made no attempt to show us the thought of the author or to point out the beauties of his style and the stress and strain of our endeavours to get the barest translation to hang together so as to make sense prevented us from seeing the ities of diction of the author. There was no continuity about the translation. We did not go back to pick up the thread of the narrative that had been dropped the day before. Minute attention was, however, given to points in grammar or quantities in scansion J mythological allusions which were profusely scattered over.the text. The fortunes of the gods and goddesses, demi-gods and heroes, with their parentage, fightings, deeds and labors had to be memorized. While busy with our lessons the Master watched us closely, either from his desk or in walking about the room, to see if any were idling or scheming. At nine o'clock with a sigh of relief, though with a secret dread of the ordeal which awaited us on the morrow, we put our books back into our satchels, and after the reading of a portion of Scripture and prayer we were dismissed.

On Sunday we all attended the Church services. More than half of the boarders were Episcopalians. Dr. Michael Boomer was the English Church clergyman. I can recall nothing of his preaching, but I remember that he was a very fine reader. His reading of the Prayer Book and of the Scripture lessons was the best that I have ever heard. Old Knox Church which I attended was an exceedingly plain barnlike structure. In it the ideas of the old Scottish reformers in reference to church building had been carried out with a faithfulness that would have pleased the iconoclasts of John Knox's day.

Instead of a full holiday on Saturdays, Dr. Tassie thought it better to give us half holidays on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. Our amusements in summer were chiefly bathing and boating. The boys who were learning to swim went to the Mill Creek where the water was comparatively shallow, but when they were able to swim perhaps fifty yards they were allowed to bathe in the river near the school where the water was deep. Fortunately no drowning accidents ever occurred. Dr. Tassie had one or two rowboats for the use of the boarders, and many a half-holiday we spent upon the river which for a mile or more above the school was deep enough for rowing.

In winter our chief amusement was skating. There were no rinks either open or closed, but when the ice was good on the river no more charming place could be found than on its glassy surface for the pursuit of our favorite pastime. In winter also we had sledding on some of the hills, and when the snow was soft we had snowballing. A standing feud existed between the town boys and us. They called us "Tassie Apes," and we retaliated by shouting "Baikie Apes," a Mr. Baikie being at that time Principal of the Central School. Many were the fights that occurred, when fists and sometimes even sticks and stones, were used.

Fights occurred among the schoolboys in those days as I suppose they do now. Every new boy had to have one or two of them before his position in the school was settled. After that it was only once in a long while that he had to assert his manhood, though, as it has been in the Balkans, war might break out at any time. Dr. Tassie did not countenance fighting, but I have an idea that he was secretly pleased when a boy whom he did not like received a thrashing from another boy. Perhaps he thought it might have a more salutary effect than if administered by himself. As a rule he kept out of the way when a fight was on. He appeared to act on the theory that little differences were best settled by the boys themselves in a fair standup fight without the interference of the teacher, the consequences of which interference are generally worse than if the fight has been allowed to go on. He trusted to the bystanders to see that there was no foul play and to the fighters themselves, for there had grown up among the boys a love of fair play. According to the rules of the game, after two boys had fought they shook hands and were friends again. Some years after I left school (I have the story from another "old boy") a fight took place in the gymnasium after the school was dismissed, and one of the two chief performers got the worst of it, as often happens. How ever, when the game was called off he went up to his antagonist to congratulate him and offered him his hand. The other fellow with a scowl turned on his heel and went out, upon which there arose such a storm of indignation among the boys at this boorish conduct that the offender had to leave school the next day and never returned
Our outdoor games were cricket, football, and baseball;' lacrosse had not yet been heard of. Cricket was the only one of these that required much skill and the only one that Dr. Tassie regarded with any favor. He never took any part in our games; that would have been beneath his dignity, but when a cricket match was on, especially when our boys were opposed by a heavier team, he was often an interested, though always a silent, spectator of the game. He liked to see his boys undertaking hard things, and if they put up a good game when the odds were dead against them it pleased him very much. He did not show his pleasure openly. It was only by some little remark or question at the tea-table that we could tell that the playing of the boys had satisfied him. He admired pluck, endurance, and skill. He favored cricket because as we played it there was never any squabbling over the decisions of the umpires, because there was a generosity and love of fair play among the players, a good hit or a fine catch being cheered by both sides, and because the game was free from the rowdyism that had already crept into some other games. In short, he looked upon cricket as a gentlemanly game and it was his object to make us gentlemen.

Much to my own mortification and disgust though I often practised cricket I 'could never attain to any proficiency in it. I was always a very poor player. I cannot tell why this was so, for the steady application I gave to the game seemed to deserve success. I was never good at games of skill; some boys are like that.

Our playground was a large field just south of the ground now occupied by the C. P. R. station and tracks and east of North Water Street as it ascends the C. P. R. hill. It was leased by the Town Cricket Club, but we were allowed to make use of it for our games. Many famous games were played on this ground by the town team, which was then one of the best in Western Canada.

The Grammar School in 1859 was a long, rather narrow, one-storey stone building with no pretension to style or beauty of any kind. It was substantial, that was the most that anyone could say for it. It had not even a belfry or cupola to relieve the dull monotony of its outline or to show that it was not some small factory or storehouse. It stood on the site of the present Collegiate Institute. At the back of the school the ground sloped rapidly down to the Grand River and in front of it a wide expanse of stumpy field lay between it and the Preston road. To the south of the school grounds no C. P. R. bridge or unsightly embankment then cut off from the school the view of the pretty little town of Galt, lying almost a mile away in the valley below. The school contained two classrooms separated by a transverse hallway. The room in the south end was used by the mathematical master and across the hallway was the door of the north room in which Dr. Tassie taught. Entering by this door the visitor saw to his right a row of desks at which were seated the senior boys, and to his left along the full length of the west wall ran a bench occupied by the juniors. There still remained a large open space down the middle of the room. Here the floor was marked in chalk with squares and circles which might have suggested to the visitor geometri cal problems awaiting solution, but which were merely intended to indicate the lines along which we were to place our toes when our classes stood up for the recitation of lessons. Maps hung on the west wall and at the north end of the room there was a large black board. On a raised platform at that end was a table and the chair of the head-master.

The classrooms were always crowded, and it required all Dr. Tassie's skill and the constant exercise of his authority to maintain order. To a man less expert than he in the management of boys the task would have been impossible. Of Dr. Tassie's life before coming to Galt I know very little. He was born in 1815 at Dublin. His father, James Tassie, an engineer and contractor, was a descendant of a Scotch family, as was also his mother, Mary Stewart, who belonged to the Garth family. He spent his boyhood in his native city, and came in 1834 to Upper Canada. He taught school for some time in Oakville and afterwards in Hamilton, where he lived fourteen years. He seems to have taken up the curriculum prescribed by the University of Toronto. In 185? he graduated and a little later he received his M.A. degree.

In 1853 he assumed the mastership of the Galt Grammar School. The School had been founded in the previous year and had been taught for a few months by a Dr. Michael Howe. That but little progress was made in Howe's time may be conjectured from the fact that only a dozen names were on the roll when he resigned. Under the rule of the new master the school rapidly filled up and the room in the old Township Hall in which the pupils met became in a short time so crowded that the trustees had to set about building a schoolhouse on a piece of land obtained from the Dickson Estate. This school formed the south end of the building which I have already mentioned, the northern extension being added in the spring of 1859.

In the year 1859 Dr. Tassie had reached the age of forty-four, A man of medium height, rather stout, he bore himself with the easy grace of one who was conscious of his authority. He walked with head erect and with a firm and masterful tread. His cane held lightly by the middle was carried more as a symbol of power than as a possible means of support. His whole mien was dignified and gentlemanly. His head was large, features refined, the forehead wide and high, the face cleanshaven except for a tuft of whisker under each ear. His black hair brushed well back from his forehead was already tinged with grey about the temples. The nose was well shaped and had a slight roman curve. The lips were full and the chin well-rounded. His light grey eyes were large and prominent. His clear mellow voice had that ring about it which betokens decision of character. A slight clearing of the throat which had become habitual to him often oppor tunely betrayed his presence or gave us timely warning of his approach. When things were going well and he was in a good humor his face was pleasant and attractive, but when he was angry it grew dark as a sky overcast with thunder clouds and his eyes blazed as if the lightning was playing in their dark recesses. Though often angry he never lost command of himself. That would have been a sign of weakness and might have been a signal for rebellion. He was a man whom we all feared and, though in a spirit of bravado we might call him "Old Bill' behind his back, we felt that he was one with whom we could not trifle as we sometimes did with the other masters. We could not but respect a teacher who had no weak points and who never gave us a chance for ridicule. His bearing before his classes was always dignified. Long experience and keen discernment gave him an intimate knowledge of boy nature. He never made a mistake in reading character. His explosions of anger were always justified, though sometimes perhaps the fault was punished with undue severity. Some teachers are looked upon by their pupils as friends and con fidants. We never regarded Dr. Tassie in that way. He never spoke of himself, never let us know what his thoughts were, but dwelt apart, inaccessible as some mountain peak. He was an autocrat in his little kingdom. His will was law and admitted no question. He was absplutely upright and sincere. I believe his whole heart was in his school and that it occupied his thoughts to the exclusion of everything else. He was industrious, _ energetic and conscientious in the per formance of his duties. He rose at five in the morning and was at his desk till breakfast time. I have no idea how he spent his school vacations, but I know that during terms he gave himself no rest. His itle in my opinion to the gratitude and esteem in which he has rightly been held by his old pupils rests not on his teaching, for his methods of teaching were in many respects faulty, but on the influence he exerted on the boys in the formation of their characters. Manliness, sincerity, truthfulness, perseverance, diligence, thorough ness, were qualities that he himself possessed, and these he succeeded in imprinting on the hearts and minds of scores and hundreds of boys who attribute whatever success they may have attained in after life to the training they received under Dr. Tassie.3a

_____________________________

WILLIAM TASSIE 1815-1886

Member of the Cambridge Hall of Fame (1995) - Married: Sarah Morgan - 1834

William Tassie was born in Dublin, Ireland on May 10, 1815 the third of eight children of James Tassie and Mary Stewart. He immigrated to Canada with his wife and family in 1834 settling first in Nelson Township. He taught briefly at Nelson before accepting a position at the first common school in Oakville. In 1839, Mr. Tassie went to the Gore District Grammar School in Hamilton where he served as the assistant master under John Rae. He remained there until 1853 when he was called to replace Michael Howe as headmaster of the School. The school had been formed in 1852 as a "prep" school to prepare students for "exhibitions in Upper Canada College and for scholarships in Trinity College and the
University". When Mr. Tassie arrived, the school had 12 students and was housed on the upper floor of the old Township Hall. It was apparent that this facility would soon be inadequate and in 1854 a new stone building was erected on a site overlooking the Grand River on Water Street North (then Hunter Street). Mr. Tassie drew around himself an excellent band of teachers and the school soon developed a reputation for excellence. Mr. Tassie held that education was largely for the building of character and favoured a curriculum centred on the classics. He modeled his school on the great British public schools of the day such as Eton, Rugby and Harrow and it was not long before the public mind held the Galt Grammar School to be the best preparatory school in the province and second in reputation, perhaps, only to Upper Canada College. By 1859, the original 12 students had grown to about 100 scholars on the way to an average annual enrollment of 220 boys. More than half of those students came to Galt from other parts of Ontario, from Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and from the United States. Many graduates from Mr. Tassie's school went on to hold prominent positions in education, religion and the law as well as in the legislatures of both Canada and the United States. Mr. Tassie was a man of stern discipline who has been described as "absolutely upright and sincere". He was described as industrious, energetic and conscientious in the performance of his duties and he expected the same of his students. Known as "Old Bill" and "The Lion Tamer", Mr. Tassie did not shy away from corporal punishment when he thought it was
necessary. Some suggest that he thought it necessary far too often and in many cases the strap "was resorted to without justifiable cause". Yet while he was stern and aloof possessing in considerable abundance what has been described as "the grand air", Mr. Tassie succeeding in gaining the respect of his students. Many of them felt that Mr. Tassie was most revered for imparting to his students the qualities of "manliness, sincerity, truthfulness, perseverance, diligence and thoroughness" which contributed significantly to their later success. Others noticed Mr. Tassie's success and in 1871 Queen's University in Kingston conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Laws in recognition of his "indefatigable exertions" and the well-earned reputation for excellence enjoyed by his school. The following year the Galt Grammar School headed the list of six schools in Ontario upon which were conferred the "name and privilege" of Collegiate Institutes. With this change came a number of obligations both of which were destined to cause problems for Mr. Tassie. The first was the requirement that the school, once the exclusive domain of male scholars, be now opened to girls. Mr. Tassie was opposed to co-education and acceded to the requirement only reluctantly by opening a separate division for girls in the old Wesleyan Chapel. The second obligation was to have more far reaching implications for Mr. Tassie since they were directly related to his teaching methods. New teaching standards and methods established by the Board of Education and introduced throughout the Province exposed a major defect in the methods that Mr. Tassie had thus far employed with great success. Mr. Tassie's method had required his pupils in all classes to commit to memory the information in the texts and be able to repeat it verbatim. There was no place in this method for any discussion of the content and meaning of the material being studied. Annual examinations set by the Department of Education reflected the new teaching methods which Mr. Tassie was unable or unwilling to implement and students at his school began to fail. As the failure rate increased, student enrollment declined to about fifty students. Criticism of his methods became more common and according to one commentator "his reputation as a teacher soon vanished". Mr. Tassie continued to resist the ever increasing pressure to change his teaching methods until finally he could resist no further, and in the spring of 1881, he resigned his position as headmaster. In the fall of that year he opened a private school in Yorkville which emphasized the classics. He returned to the public system in 1884 when he assumed the role of headmaster at the Peterborough Collegiate Institute. He was selected for that school because of his reputation as a strict disciplinarian. Learning was something Mr. Tassie expected of himself as well as his students and while he was teaching he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Toronto in 1856 and his Master of Arts in 1858. He served as president of the Ontario Grammar School Teachers' Association in 1869 and 1870 as well as in 1871 when it became the Ontario Grammar School Masters' Association. Mr. Tassie died in Peterborough on November 21, 1886.

30074 Jane Christman Celebrates Her 87th Birthday

On Sunday, January 25, Mrs. Jane Christman, one of the oldest residents of Elmira, celebrated her 87th birthday. Mrs. Christman , who is the second oldest resident in town, was born in Guelph, a daughter of Scotch emigrants, the late Mr. and Mrs. James Taylor. The latter, known as "Grandma Taylor" here where she lived for a number of years, reached the ripe old age of 87 years. Mrs. Jane Christman was born on Robert Burns birthday and is of Scotch descent and to her one are better than "our ain folk" and anyone who can relate a good Scotch story captivates her fancy immediately.

Before her marriage she visited relatives here and met her husband, the late John Christman and on January 7, 1867, their marriage took place at her home in Guelph, the Rev. W.S. Ball performing the ceremony. After the formalities, the bridal couple, relatives and guests drove by horses and sleighs to Elmira where a fowl supper was served at Vogt's hotel, which stood where the fire station now is. As was the custom then, they danced and made merry in the hall above the hotel till the "wee sma' hours of the morning."

Mr. and Mrs. Christman took up residence in their home here, which was a dwelling and is now occupied by Eassy's fruit store. At that time, Mrs. Christman says, there were no lights or sidewalks and in the evenings people carried lanterns.

Six children were born to them and they proved a blessing, especially after the death of their father 52 years ago. At the time of Mr. Christman's death, the oldest child was 11 and the youngest less than a year old. Through perserverance and the assistance of a benevolent society for several years the mother gained a livelihood for her family.

In keeping with her nationality, her favorite dishes are Scotch and her "Scotch bread" is known for miles. Her own opinion of her friends is "everyone is nice and good and I haven't any enemies." In all her years she never remembered times when there was such a depression as the present one.

A number of her old friends for years back gather with her each birthday. This year the gathering took place on Saturday January 24th. Mrs. Christman is enjoying good health, has her second sight, can thread a needle by lamplight, and has good hearing.1a

MOTHER BEREAVED TWICE IN FEW DAYS

News of Death of Last Surviving Member of Family Held Back For Fear of Too Great a Shock

The two last surviving children of Mrs. Jane Christman's family of seven children passed away within several days of each other. Word was received this week of the death and burial of her son Philip H. Christman at Denver, Colorado, following a paralytic stroke. He was widely known in mercantile circles there. Mrs. Christman was informed of her son's death this week. Word of the death of her daughter, Agnes Christman, who was well-known in town, reached here on Tuesday but was not passed on to Mrs. Christman immediately for fear that news of the deaths of her last two children within such a short time of each other and so sudden would be too much.

The funeral service of Miss Agnes Christman was held at 10:30 Thursday morning from the Dreisinger Funeral Home. Interment was made in the family plot in Elmira. Rev. J. Ure Stewart conducted the funeral services.

The account of the death of Philip Christman as recorded in a Denver paper was as follows:

"Mr. Christman was born in Elmira, Ontario on March 22, 1876. He came to Denver 27 years ago and had lived here since. He was a member of Masonic Lodge No. 80 A.F. and A.M. He is survived by his wife and a daughter of Denver, his mother, Mrs. Jane Christman, and a sister, Agnes, of Elmira. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday afternoon at the Olinger Mortuary, Speer boulevard and Sherman street. Burial will be in Fairmont Cemetery."

The death of Miss Agnes Christman took place at the Old People's Home in Kitchener. Deceased was born in Elmira on September 13, 1872. Her death followed a short illness of flu which later developed into pneumonia. On Monday she expressed a wish to have her mother come to see her, but owing to Mrs. Christman's age, which is nearly 90, it was thought advisable for her not to go.2a

Celebrates Her 90th Birthday - Mrs. Jane Christman Now Ninety Years Old; Came to Elmira in 1867

Today Mrs. Jane Christman is celebrating the ninetieth anniversary of her birth, surrounded by a group of friends and well wishers. She was born in Paisley Block, near Guelph, on January 25, 1844, the daughter of James and Agnes Taylor, Scottish pioneers. On January 1, 1867, she was married at her home to John Christman of Elmira. After the ceremony the bridal couple, relatives and friends drove in sleighs to Elmira and partook of a fowl dinner at Vogt's hotel, which stood where now is the fire hall. After the wedding feast the company danced till the "wee, sma' hours". Their first home was in a dwelling that rested where the Eassy fruit store stands.

Elmira was then a diminutive village of a few hundred inhabitants; had no sidewalks nor street lights, and when the neighbors visited one another they carried lanterns. The people were kind and sociable and welcomed the Scottish lassie to their midst.

Mr. and Mrs. Christman were the parents of six children. Her husband passed away in 1879, when their oldest child was eleven years and the youngest fewer than twelve months old. Yet by perserverance and the generosity of friends and a fraternal society she was enabled to raise her brood and live to see them develop into respectable men and women.

For sixty-seven years her home has been a meeting place of mothers and of their daughters for the interchange of town news over a cup of tea, at which she often served her famous Scottish "short bread". Many at home and abroad speak of her as "Aunt Jane" and one of her chief pleasures is the receipt of calls and letters from boys and girls who have gone away and made names for themselves in various walks of life.

For a number of years her mother, "Grandma Taylor", lived with Mrs. Christman and set her a good example by passing the ninety-seventh milestone of life.

While Mrs. Christman's cup of affliction has been full and often brimmed over, she has borne her trials with fortitude. As related by The Signet last week, she recently was bereaved of her last surviving son and daughter. The main purpose of today's birthday party is to console her and strengthen her to say:"Thy Will be done".

Many happier returns of the day, Mrs. Christman.3a

30079 Mrs. Samuel Uttley Died of Heart Failure

END CAME WHOLLY UNEXPECTEDLY

The death of Mrs. Samuel Uttley occurred at noon to-day in Doon, of heart failure. She had been ill for several days from an attack of La Grippe but it caused no apprehension to the members of her family. The attending physician noted that her heart's action was somewhat weak, but did not consider the symptoms dangerous. She slept well during the greater part of Monday night. This forenoon there was nothing alarming outwardly in her condition. But at noon she passed peacefully from life unto death.

The deceased wife and mother was in her 77th year and leaves a husband, three sons and three daughters to mourn her departure. The daughters are Miss Annie of Hamilton; Mrs. Mary Parr, of Connecticut; Miss Edith of Doon. The sons are John J. of Stettler, Alberta, James T. of Doon and W. V. Uttley of Berlin.

Mrs. Uttley was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Taylor and was born in Quebec city, shortly after the arrival of her parents from Arbroath, Scotland in 1837. The family afterwards located in Paisley Block, Guelph, where she resided until she reached womanhood and wedded. They took up their residence at Elmira and lived there many years, before removing to Doon.

She had all the virtues and strength of a good Scotch mother. Industrious to a degree, thrifty and self-sacrificing for her children -- prizing education as a great gift, and ambitious for her offspring. She was a modest, God-fearing woman who made not overly many friends but was true as steel to those she made. Two of her daily admonitions stand out: "Be a good boy" and "Make Spare". The day on which she is to be laid to rest has not yet been decided upon. Probably it will be Thursday.1a

GOLDEN WEDDING


Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Uttley of Doon, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary today, surrounded by their children and descendants and close friends.

They were wedded in Paisley Block, near Guelph, on Dec. 5, 1862, by Rev. J. Ball, a Presbyterian clergyman of Guelph. Mrs. Uttley's maiden name was Mary Taylor, and she was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Taylor. She was born at Quebec on November 1st, 1836, shortly after the arrival of her father's family from Scotland. Mr. Uttley was born at Whitacker, Norfolkshire, Eng., on Dec. 23rd, 1837.

The bridesmaid at the wedding of fifty years ago was Miss Jane Christman of Elmira. The groomsman was Mr. George Tuck, of Clifford. Mrs. Christman attended the golden wedding festivity; Mr. Tuck's health prevented his attendance.

Mr. and Mrs. Utley resided in Elmira for the first twenty years of their married life. Later they removed to Peel Township for five years, after which they took up their residence in Doon, where they have lived for the past twenty-five years.

Their union was blessed with eight children, of whom six are living. They are John, of Settler, Alta.; Mrs. Harry Parr, of Pascoag, R.I.; Edith at home; Annie, James and William, of Berlin. Sixteen grandchildren are numbered among her descendants.

At 3 o'clock today, the Rev. Jos. James of Berlin, read a golden wedding service and wished the participants many further years of health and happiness. The assembled relatives and friends joined in offering congratulations and good wishes.

The celebrants were made the recipients of numerous gifts to mark the event. - Ex.2a

30083 Ryan Taylor 18 June1950 - 25 September 2006

Ronald Ryan Wilbert Taylor, a great friend of our Branch and champion of family history, passed away on the 25th of September, 2006. His legacy is huge, and the thousands of people who benefited from his expertise over past decades will surely miss his guidance, his jovial countenance, and his remarkable insights into the world of historical research. For more than twenty-five years Ryan contributed to the genealogical well-being of Waterloo Region. A large component of that was with the Waterloo-Wellington Branch of OGS, where he served in many capacities, including branch chair and newsletter editor. But it was in the Grace Schmidt Room of Local History at the Kitchener Public Library that he really came into his own. Many of us will remember the way he nurtured our interests, as we tentatively entered the wonderful world of census returns, tax assessments, and other mysterious documents of the past. Ryan was always there to encourage and advise. Later, in 1993, Ryan commenced writing his "Tracing Your Roots" columns for The Kitchener Record . His articles were full of new ideas and interesting possibilities, bringing the world of genealogy to a much wider audience. He also broadcast "Bookmark", a review programme on CFCA-FM radio in Kitchener from 1983 to 1992. In 2001, Ryan prepared a new edition of his much loved "Family Research in Waterloo County", making the proceeds from sales of this publication a generous and lasting gift to Waterloo Branch - a gift that will be cherished by Waterloo County researchers for years to come. Born in Oshawa, Ryan was the third and youngest child of Charles Henry and Robena Velma (Woodward) Taylor. He began working on family history at the age of fourteen and soon developed an insatiable fascination for this hobby. He was educated at Carleton University and the University of Ottawa. Library work took him to Manitoba in 1972. Then, upon return to Ontario, he brought his special level of excellence to the communities of Sudbury and Ottawa and to the counties of Waterloo and Wellington. Ryan conceived and initiated the Oral History programme at KPL, resulting in a resource of well over 600 interviews with local residents, each helping to document life in our Region. Eventually Ryan was offered a position at the National Library of Canada. From there he took up his final position at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana. A colleague at ACPL said, "He continually focused on what would be best for our library customers, what would make an item most quickly and easily found by the greatest number of individuals - reminding us all of why we are here. It is so very hard to say goodbye to such an individual." These are sentiments that also will echo throughout Ontario! From 1988 to 1997 Ryan served as Editor of the OGS publication Families . He compiled an impressive list of publications, too numerous to mention here. His wonderful voice, infectious laughter, and generous nature made him a perfect lecturer and spokesperson for the genealogical world. He was constantly in demand all across North America and occasionally in the United Kingdom, never ceasing to inspire and instruct. Ryan also served on the faculty of the National Institute of Genealogical Studies, whose courses are given online through the extension program of the Faculty of Library and Information Science, University of Toronto. He was co-host of "Branching Out", a genealogical phone-in television show in Fort Wayne, from 1997 to 1999. He also is one of the panelists on Ancestors in the Attic, a History TV show. He died after taping the final episode, but before the telecast of the first episode. Ryan was a wonderful, dear, kind friend to many of us. On a personal note, Ryan and I shared many joyful times over a good many years - gadding together in England, tearing across Ontario researching our books, getting stuck in snowstorms, giggling together in Archives when discovering amusing details, and enjoying quiet times too, dinners and pleasurable chatting. We will miss him, but his splendid legacy lives on. Frances Hoffman1a

Married: Margaret Winton - 1826

Thomas Taylor was a millwright born in Dalkeith, Scotland and the great-grandfather of Andrew Winton Taylor. While working in New York state, in 1818, Mr. Taylor was engaged by the Honourable William Dickson to supervise the building of the Dumfries Mill, Galt's first grist mill. The mill opened in 1819 and later that same year, Mr. Taylor purchased Woodside farm on the East River Road on Concession 9 in Dumfries Township. Mr. Taylor returned to Scotland in 1826 where he married Margaret Winton. He returned to North America where he built several mills in upper New York state. In the fall of 1832, he returned to Canada and settled his family at Woodside farm. Mr. Taylor died on August 14, 1845 and was buried in the United Presbyterian Cemetery, now Centennial Park. That cemetery was closed in the 1880's and his remains were removed to Mount View Cemetery. Mr. Taylor's original tombstone can be found in the Pioneer Pergola in St. Andrews Park.

30091 15 Year Old Galt Girl
SENT TO INDUSTRIAL REFUGE
FOR FROM TWO TO FIVE YEARS
Police Constable Hansen of Galt brought up three prisoners on Wednesday afternoon. Two of them are vagrants. One, James Temple, will spend ten days in Berlin jail. The other, Pat. Moran, will go from here to Central Prison for half a year.
The third was a girl of 15 summers. Her name is Florence Lovelle and she is charged with stealing 40c from Evelyn Allison at the Imperial Hotel. She was sent up to the County Judge for trial by Mayor Cant and J. P. Spiers, who also sent a letter advising that she be sent to the Mercer Reformatory for a term. Her home is not what it should be and the girl said to be incorrigible. She is rather pretty. She was given her trial at 11:45 before the County Judge, today, Crown Attorney Bowlby prosecuting. She was undefended. She said she took 40c but that it belonged to her as Evelyn Allison had borrowed 40c from her, and that she simply took what was hers.
She was pressed to plead guilty or not guilty and finally said she guessed she was guilty, though she [seemed] hardly to understand what it meant, as she claimed she had told the Allison girl if she did not pay her back the 40c, she would go upstairs and get it.
The Judge addressed the girl, telling her that he knew she is wild and apt to go astray, as he has been informed she stays out late at night and has too much liberty. Her friends are very anxious to have her looked after as both her parents are away from Galt. He then sentenced her to the industrial Refuge for girls in connection with the Andrew Mercer Reformatory for girls at Toronto, for a term of not less than two and not more than five years. She was quite unconcerned about the sentence.1a

30096 By 1816, he [Absalom Shade] had acquired sufficient money to buy 95,000 acres of forest. In this wilderness, he planned to establish homes for his Scottish friends, where their unremitting, diligent toil could yield rewards as well as blisters. Absalom Shade, young, strong and competent, prepared the way for them. When Absalom Shade left civilization, he had one hundred dollars with him and a set of carpenter tools. Since dollars could buy nothing for him in a deep forest devoid of trading posts or settlers, he soon found the dollars valueless. But the tools were invaluable, especially the axe. Alone, he hewed at the centuries' old trees until a clearing of wheat could be planted. He fashioned first a rough cabin of unhewn logs, chinked with mud. When three scotch settlers were finally lured from New York State it is a tradition that eight cabins, a bridge, an unequipped grist mill, and a sawmill also lacking machinery, awaited their arrival. Dickson encouraged settlers, sometimes assisting them to establish their homes on the tract he named Dumfries, in honour of his old Scottish shire. He wrote his well-to-do Scotch friends, pressing the opportunities offered by this new land for their sons. None came. Four years after Absalom Shade began his labours, a young man named John Telfer was sent to Scotland to gather the poverty-ridden Lowlanders, who were glad to come. Even John Hogg, the Ettrich Shepherd whose poetry made the Yarrow famous, was nearly persuaded to hymn the praises of the wilderness but decided finally to send his nephew and his wife into the New World.1a

John Telfer in 1834 he came to Galt , Ontario, and was recruiting settlers in the Border Country of Scotland for William Dickson who owned most of the land in the Galt area at that time. In 1840 he worked as Land Agent in opening up the land to settlement in the village of Sydenham ( Owen Sound ). In the winter of 1840-41, Telfer went back to Galt and left Thomas Rutherford in charge of the government stores by himself. In 1845 both he and John Telfer came out to what is now Leith; Telfer to take up 425 acres on part of which Leith now stands, and to build the local grist mill on what is now Telfers Creek.2a

In 1820 one John Telfer a retired Nor'wester trader, went to Scotland to induce immigration, and a large colony was obtained for the Galt settlement from Roxburgh and Selkir shires. in 1825 this movement was still in force, and even in 1831 and succeeding years the flow to Dumfries continued.3a

___________________________

John Telfer was an employee of the Hudson Bay Co. in 1819 or 1820 when he reached an agreement with the Honourable William Dickson to travel to Selkirkshire, Scotland to encourage the people there to immigrate to Canada and to settle on lands in Dumfries township owned by Mr. Dickson. In return for his services, Mr. Telfer was to receive a parcel of land on the East River Road south of the village of Shade's Mills. Mr. Telfer expected that he would receive the land for free. When he returned from Scotland, he found that he was to be charged four dollars an acre for the land. As late as 1839 he wrote to Mr. Dickson requesting that the issue be settled and that he be properly compensated for his labours. He went so far as to complain to Lord Sydenham, the governor of Canada, when Lord Sydenham visited Galt. The governor refused to interfere but offered Mr. Telfer a position as agent for the Crown in the settlement of the Sydenham Tract near Owen Sound. Mr. Telfer accepted the offer in 1840, left Galt and purchased a mill at Leith, near Owen Sound. Unfortunately the mill was not profitable and after a time, Mr. Telfer sold the property to James Wilson. He returned to Galt where he engaged in business for a time and then moved to Sarnia where he died in 1871.

30100 WILLIAM PATTISON TELFORD.

No man occupies a more enviable or honorable position in financial circles in Owen Sound than William Pattison Telford. Throughout almost his entire business career he has been closely associated with moneyed interests and his name in banking circles is one which carries with it weight and confidence, for throughout an active career he has displayed thorough understanding of banking methods and the progressive spirit which enables one to advance beyond existing conditions into fields giving a broader outlook and wider scope. Mr. Telford is a native of Roxburyshire, Scotland, born on the llth of October, 1836, his parents being William Pattison and Elizabeth (Murray) Telford. The father, who was a school teacher by profession, came to Canada about 1841 and located in Dumfries county near Galt. There he lived for five years and in 1848 he came to the township of Sydenham. Throughout his life he followed the profession of teaching, having for a half century been identified with that calling in Scotland and in Canada. He was a capable educator who readily maintained discipline and, moreover, had the faculty of imparting clearly and readily to others the knowledge that he had acquired. Of his family there are three sons and four daughters now living.


William Pattison Telford of this review was educated in the Dickie settlement in Dumfries, attending the public schools and later attending the Normal School in Toronto. He afterward served a three years' apprenticeship to the stone mason's trade, subsequent to which time he took up the profession of teaching, which he followed in Sydenham for fourteen years. He then turned his attention to the manufacture of cheese, in which he continued for one year, after which he was connected with building operations as a contractor for three years. During this time he became associated with financial interests, being one of the organizers of the Sydenham Mutual Fire Insurance Company, of which he acted as manager for nine years. On his retirement from building operations he became bookkeeper for R. J. Doyle, with whom he continued for five years, and in 1883 he established a private bank under the firm style of Telford & Company. For twenty-three years he conducted the institution and made it a most profitable investment. During the entire time he paid a dividend of twenty per cent, to the members of the company, save one year when the dividend was fifteen per cent. In 1906 he sold his bank to the Sovereign Bank of Toronto and as a bonus received enough to pay the regular dividend for the following ten years to all the stockholders. During the past seventeen years he has been manager of the bank and also of the Grey & Bruce Loan Company. This company was founded in 1889 with William Roy as president, S. J. Parker, vice-president, and William P. Telford, manager. Affairs were conducted under that administration until Mr. Roy's death, when S. J. Parker became president and Robert McKnight vice-president, Mr. Telford remaining as manager. This is strictly a loan company, confining its business operations to the county. There is an authorized capital of five hundred thousand dollars and a paid-up capital of two hundred and sixty thousand dollars. The expense of management under the regime of Mr. Telford has been less than two-fifths of one per cent, of the capital invested. It is the strongest financial institution of the county and its great success is attributable in a very large measure to Mr. Telford 's able management. He is also president of the Sun Cement Company, Limited, and also the Georgian Bay Power Company, Limited.

In 1867 Mr. Telford was married to Miss Margaret Couper, a daughter of John Couper of the township of Sydenham, and they have four children: William Pattison, a solicitor of Owen Sound ; John C., who is manager of the Sovereign Bank at Durham, Ontario; Robert, who was graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Arts from Toronto University and is now in the customs department in Ottawa; and Euphemia, at home. Mr. Telford belongs to the Division street Presbyterian Church and takes an active and helpful part in its work, contributing generously to its support and serving as one of its elders. He has also figured to some extent in political circles, having been a member of the town council of Owen Sound, while in 1904 he was elected to the Dominion Parliament, defeating T. I. Thompson, who held the position at that time. He is numbered among the earnest men whose depth of character and strict adherence to principle excite the admiration of his contemporaries. He is a man of distinctive ability and his character is one which is above a shadow of reproach. He has been faithful to the high offices in which he has been called to serve both in business and political life and is widely known and respected by all who have been at all familiar with his honorable and useful career.2a

30101 The first name of the place was Cassel, but was shortly changed to New Hamburg. Wm. Scott was one of the most promi-nent among the pioneer business men. He, about 1834, became possessed of a lot of land and a grist mill. Most, if not all of this property, he purchased from Absolom Schade. According to some one Goschman was the builder and first proprietor of the mill. Scott added a saw mill and distillery, the little group of buildings being located just at the rear of where the Wm. Tell Block now stands. Later a woollen mill was erected on the site of the distillery. Meantime, Charles Kirkpatrick opened the first general store and other tradesmen followed. T. G. S. Neville was the second merchant, following Kirkpatrick in 1835. Neville also built a grist mill and established a second woollen mill. He became the owner of considerable land and was a leading figure for some years, becoming the village's first reeve in 1858. In 1852 Scott erected the large four-story frame flour mill, still familiar to nearly everyone, as it was burned down only six years ago.

30107 In 1886 the Herald was purchased by Dingman Bros., who moved it in to its present elegant quarters on Market square. This paper has also been successful, being now a sixteen-page sheet, and sold to subscribers at $i per annum. In 1887 a daily was issued, which has now a large circulation. Both of the Stratford daily papers have a great advertising patronage, and certainly have done much in promoting the business interests of the city.

In 1863 was established a weekly German paper, named the Colonist. This sheet was founded by Jacob Teuscher, In 1872 it became the property of Messrs. Schmidt & Scherer, and five years later Mr. Schmidt became sole proprietor. The Colonist has a large patronage amongst the Germans, a number of whom are settled near Stratford. Since the period when the News was launched, many ventures have been made, but not with great success. An Orange Gazette was published for some time, but abandoned. These, with a paper called the Advertiser, constitute the journalistic ventures in Stratford.1a

30111 David Thaler of Mannheim Dies In 96th Year Many Descendants

At nine o'clock yesterday morning, the death occurred at Mannheim, of David Thaler, in his 96th year, after a residence in the county of over eighty-three years. Born in Germany, deceased came to Canada when a lad of thirteen years, settling on a farm in the vicinity of Berlin. When fifteen years of age, he suffered from a form of hip disease, which left him lame. For a number of years after he followed the printer's trade later returning to the farm, where he spent the balance of his life.

At the age of twenty-two, he was married to Rosina Mader, who predeceased him about forty-three years ago, dying very suddenly in Berlin. Thirty years ago he retired from the farm, living since with his sons, and later at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Joseph Hallman, where death overtook him.
Six sons and two daughters survive him, namely, John of Elmwood, Jacob of Bagley, Iowa; David of Centreville; Simon of Breslau; Andrew of Berlin; Mrs. William Morley of Listowel and Mrs. Joseph Hallman, of Mannheim. Two sons and two daughters predeceased him. 125 grandchildren, 200 great grandchildren, 50 of the fourth, and some of the fifth generation also survive.

Although past his allotted four score years and ten, the late Mr. Thaler was not a victim of many of the infirmities that overtake those of his age, and even though lame, he often enjoyed long walks, a walk of five miles in one day, not appearing to tire him greatly. His intellect was clear and his mind filled with pleasant bits of the early history of the county, that made a chat with him a delight for those interested in the early pioneer days. The funeral will take place from the residence of his daughter, Mannheim, to the New Mennonite Church, Berlin, for service and Mount Hope Cemetery for burial.1a

30131 C. F. Thiele, 70 Waterloo's Noted Bandsman, Dies

Canada's leading band promoter, Charles F. Thiele, died early today at the K-W Hospital. Mr. Thiele was director of the Waterloo Musical Society band for more than 30 years. He was 70. He retired as bandmaster in 1951. Ill for nearly a year, he was confined to hospital for some months. Bandmaster, composer, music publisher and industrialist, Mr. Thiele was singularly successful both as a business man and musician.

On Concert Stage

After a career on the concert stage the duties of one position, that of Waterloo bandmaster, did not offer sufficient outlet for his unbounded energy and promotional ability. Former professional bandsman (a cornetist) and director of New York bands at various times, Mr. Thiele had spent some years on the concert stage and had travelled widely before coming to Waterloo in 1919. The Thiele Concert Company, which he organized and directed, included Mrs. Thiele, talented cornetist, and their daughter Carolyn (Mrs. Wilfrid Bender) equally talented saxophonist. Shortly after he became established in Waterloo Mr. Thiele started a music business at his home. When business outgrew his home he opened a second-floor office on King street.

Industrial Start

The manufacture of music stands started him in industry. He took over a small section of an old industrial plant in Waterloo and developed the business that was to become the Waterloo Metal Stampings. When the Waterloo Curling Club disbanded and offered its centrally-located rink for sale, Mr. Thiele bought and reconstructed it as required for manufacturing purposes, erected a new modern front with office space and combined his two enterprises under one roof. But the centralization was not complete. For years bandsmen had climbed two long flights of stairs to a third-floor hall on King street. When his businesses had become well established in their new location, Mr. Thiele constructed a second floor over his one-storey plant and offices to provide a spacious, modern band auditorium believed to be the finest in Canada.

Organized Festival

In the field of music he combined musicianship and showmanship. When the Waterloo Musical Society observed its 50th anniversary in 1932, Mr. Thiele organized a colorful program in celebration of the event. That was the Waterloo band festival, Canada's greatest band event. From 15 bands and 80 solo contestants in 1932, the festival has grown to an event in which 60 bands take part. Individual entries exceeded the 1,000 mark last year. Bands from as far as Kiel, Wis., and Kamloops, B.C., have attended. While Mr. Thiele was doing this for Waterloo, he was also doing more for bands and band music in Ontario and Canada than anyone else had done before.

Formed Associations

In 1920 he organized the Ontario Bandsmen's Association. The association has conducted band contests at the Canadian National Exhibition since that time. Mr. Thiele was president of the association. When bandmasters met for the first Waterloo festival, he was instrumental in starting the Canadian Bandmasters Association of which he had also been president. Annually he was host to the Canadian bandmasters for the midwinter meeting to which he brought leading U.S. and Canadian band and band instrument teachers and authorities to deliver lectures. A music camp long had been another dream. It became a reality in 1946 following the Second World War when the Waterloo Music Camp was established at Bamberg (Bandberg) 12 miles west of Waterloo. It was dedicated to the memory of Canadian bandsmen who gave their lives in the two world wars. [See Waterloo Historical Society Volume 92 - 2004, "Bandberg Recalled," pg 189; three photos and captions.]

Accordion Events

The camp resounded to two accordion festivals and one introductory camp session attended by 60 boys but Mr. Thiele's illness arrested development of the camp project. The manufacture of instruments was another objective. Mr. Thiele did engage in the manufacture of drums and other percussion instruments. Late in 1951 he gave signal recognition to services of key employees of his firms. Twelve men and women who had served for eight to 25 years received shares in the two companies, the Waterloo Music Company, Ltd., and the Waterloo Metal Stampings. He employed as high as 150 in the two enterprises. Waterloo Music Company school music books, approved by provincial departments of education, are used in schools from coast to coast. Mr. Thiele was honored by many band groups. He was a member of the Ontario Trumpet Band Association and an honorary member of the Quebec, Wisconsin and North Dakota Band Associations. He was an honorary member of the K-W Rotary Club and a director of the Canada Health and Accident Assurance Corp. A member of the Waterloo Masonic Lodge, AF and AM, he was also a member of Kitchener chapter, RAM Valette Preceptory, Knights Templar and Mocha Temple, AAONMS. He is survived by one son Arnold Thiele of Elmira; one daughter, Mrs. Wilfrid (Carolyn) Bender, Bamberg; two grandchildren; one brother, George, and a sister, Miss Lily Thiele of New York. The body is at the Schreiter Sandrock funeral home where the funeral will be conducted Saturday at 2 o'clock in charge of Waterloo Masonic Lodge. Entombment will be in Woodland Mausoleum.

A piece of local music history to shut down after almost a century in business

KITCHENER - St. John's Music , a fixture on the local music scene for almost a century, is set to close.

The store, which sells and services a variety of instruments, will close July 7, some 92 years after it began as the Waterloo Music Company. That company was founded in 1922 by Charles F. Thiele, a man who was legendary in Waterloo's history as a mecca for brass bands.
For most of its lifetime, the store was at its original location at Regina and Erb streets in Waterloo, until it moved in July 2011 to the Tannery building at Joseph and Victoria streets. The store, which was bought by the Winnipeg-based St. John's Music in 2004, dropped the Waterloo Music name after the move to Kitchener. The store's long history is commemorated at the Tannery location with a somewhat battered brick-red sign from the original Waterloo Music site.....

The company and its founder also loomed large in the history of the local music scene. Thiele was a New York native who immigrated to Canada to escape anti-German sentiment after the First World War. He headed the Waterloo Music Society and founded the enormously popular Waterloo Band Festival, Canada's biggest, which attracted tens of thousands of visitors every summer right up until the late 1950s. Thiele started a summer camp in Bamberg for budding musicians, calling it Bandburg, and was famous for giving away instruments and free music lessons to those who couldn't afford to pay....

Motivated by music: Iconic composer Howard Cable was still writing at 95

Waterloo Region Record By Valerie Hill

Howard Cable of Toronto Born: Dec. 15, 1920 in Toronto Died: March 30, 2016 of age related illness

It is ironic that legendary composer Howard Cable's last commissioned work - a tribute to C.F. Thiele - would end up being performed as his own tribute after Howard passed away in his sleep March 30.

On May 1, the Waterloo Concert Band, under the direction of Trevor Wagler, will perform "A musical tribute to a legendary music man." The piece was commissioned by the concert band as a tribute to Thiele, who died in 1954 and is credited with being the first musician to bring Canadian band music onto the world stage. Howard was a mere 94 years old and still actively composing music, writing everything in longhand when he was given the commission that he completed on deadline in December....

30146 Frederica Elizabeth Fullard - ''Betty' (nee Thomas)
1920 - 2013

Peacefully on February 28, 2013 in her 93rd year. Beloved wife of the late Clarence (''Chappie'') Haig Fullard M.B.E. Predeceased by her sisters Margaret Thomas, Katherine Lapp, and Ann Reny. Left to cherish her memory are her brother Newton Thomas and sister Constance Klassen; children Valerie, Brian (Trudy) and Brent (Christina); grandchildren Vanessa, Melissa, Sacha, Stefanie, David, Taylor, Sara, Fraser, Carson, and Harris; and eight great-grandchildren. Betty was born in Fort William to parents Dr. Newton O. Thomas and Mildred Irene Laschinger and, later moving to New Hamburg, where she was the eldest of 5 sisters and 1 brother. After graduating from high school, she began work as a secretary at Cluett, Peabody & Co. Betty met her future husband Chappie, in 1939 while walking on Wasaga Beach with friends. During this time, Chappie was stationed at Camp Borden attending Officer's Training College. Marriage was delayed until after Chappie returned from War overseas in 1945, at which point he and Betty moved to Toronto to begin their family. One of Betty's lifetime goals was to become a teacher, and once her children entered high school she enrolled at Teachers College. Upon graduation, she began her teaching career in Etobicoke at Silvercreek Elementary School and later at Westway Public School. Another goal was to attend university; this she did at night school, graduating with a B.A. from the University of Toronto in 1974. Betty was devoted to her students and also became a tireless advocate for the rights of women teachers. Betty served on the Executive of the Federation of Women at Teachers' Associations of Ontario where she successfully championed the cause of overturning the highly discriminatory practice of women teachers losing seniority if they took maternity leave (seniority being the basis upon which pay and eligibility for promotion to Vice-Principals and Principals was determined). Betty continued to teach until she was 67, having being asked to stay past the mandatory retirement age of 65 because she was such an excellent teacher. Once retired after 21 years of teaching, Betty enjoyed the theatre, music, travelling with family and friends, spending time with grandchildren in Collingwood and Muskoka, and supporting many different causes including the Council of Canadians, Doctors without Boarders, Amnesty International, Greenpeace, LEAF (Women's Legal Action Fund), United Way, Humane Society of Toronto and the World Wildlife Fund. Betty leaves behind many wonderful memories for her family, friends, and former students who remember her generosity and loving, caring nature. A special thank-you to the wonderful staff at Trillium Health Centre, Mississauga, who helped care for Betty in her final year. A funeral service will be held at Zion United Church, 215 Peel St., New Hamburg, on Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. followed by burial at Riverside Cemetery in New Hamburg, Donations to a charity of your choice in Betty's memory would be appreciated.

30150 Knox Preston Presbyterian Church

Rev. Charles Freshman, who served as a German Wesleyan Methodist missionary in Preston and area c.1860-1869, stated in his autobiography that the Presbyterian Church engaged a "young Swiss preacher and sent him out to evangelize the Germans in Waterloo County" (Freshman 1868:284). Dr. Freshman reported that the young Presbyterian preacher preached in the "Lutheran Church in that place [Preston] ... but he failed to establish a cause" (Ibid:285).
According to the Minutes of the Second General Assembly (1876) of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, a German Mission was established in Preston on August 10, 1875 and an English one was begun on March 14, 1876. Rev. George Haigh was inducted as Minister to the combined congregations of Preston, Doon and Hespeler on April 24, 1876. Formal organization of this English-speaking congregation was on August 29, 1876. Services at the German Mission were "suspended" in January, 1878, "for want of encouragement", according to the Minutes of the Fourth General Assembly in 1878.
Commencing in 1880, services were held by Rev. Haigh in a stone building at the corner of Duke and Argyle Streets in Preston. However, on March 20, 1883 Preston was separated from Doon and Hespeler which remained under the ministry of Rev. Haigh. Preston reverted to a Mission Station at that time, only to be "dissolved" on September 16, 1884, according to the Minutes of the Eleventh General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada in 1885.
The congregation was reorganized in 1891 by Dr. James A.R. Dickson of Central Presbyterian Church, Galt; the first church service was held on April 5, 1891 by Mr. P.W. Anderson in the Royal Templars' Hall in the Schultz Block. The Town Hall was then used for a short time; the first Kirk Session was elected there on March 12, 1893. The Lyceum Hall on King Street was purchased in 1893, renovated, and dedicated on July 16, 1893. Preston and Doon were placed on a two-point charge in 1893; the first minister was Rev. Herbert Francis Thomas (1893-1898) who was ordained and inducted into Knox Presbyterian on August 21, 1893. The church was rebuilt in 1938 and was in use until 1965 when the new church was completed; the King Street property was then sold.
The cornerstone for a new church on Argyle Street North, between King and Duke Streets, was laid on October 18, 1964. Dedication services for the new building held on March 27, 1965 included locking the door of the old church. In 1973 the name of the church was changed to Knox Preston Presbyterian Church when Preston joined with Galt and Hespeler to form the city of Cambridge. Dates on church: 1893, 1965.1

30158 Lifetimes: Lawyer gave of time freely, generously helping people

Newton (Newt) Arthur Thomas of New Hamburg, born: Dec. 18, 1923 in Fort William (Thunder Bay), died: April 8, 2017 of old age

Newt Thomas started life as one of six kids raised in the wild and beautiful community of Thunder Bay, then known as Fort William. His mom was a nurse and his dad, also named Newton, was a pathologist with responsibility for all of Northern Ontario.

Their family's idyllic life in the north would end in tragedy when Newton senior died in a drowning accident in 1929. Newt was only five years old.

"For Newt it was a catastrophe," said his only surviving sibling, his sister Connie Klassen.

It was in fact a tragedy for the entire family.

"My father died, he was only 40 years old and my mother was left with six children," said Klassen.

Mildred Thomas decided to take her now fatherless kids back to her hometown, moving into the Laschinger homestead on the banks of the Nith River in New Hamburg. It would be on this river that Newt would hone a lifelong passion for fishing.....

Brilliant Medical Authority meets tragic death in Neebling River


In the death of Dr. Newton O. Thomas, who was drowned on Saturday night in the Neebling River, Fort William loses one its most brilliant citizens, and the Province of Ontario one of the best scientists in its bacteriological laboratories.

How Dr. Thomas happened to fall into the river is a mystery and the coroner, Dr. J.W. Cook, who made the investigation yesterday decided there was no necessity for an inquest and all circumstances pointed to accidental death.

Dr Thomas, who was 41 years old, was one of the brilliant students of Victoria university, having taken his B.A. degree there and graduated from University of Toronto two years later with a degree of MD specializing in bacteriology and pathology. The day after graduation he obtained a commission with the Canadian field ambulance and went overseas, attaining the rank of Captain. His special knowledge of bacteriology was made use of in the hospitals during the war and he served with the army of occupation in Germany after the armistice.

Returning to Canada in 1919, he was appointed head of the provincial laboratory, Fort William, as bacteriologist and and pathologist for the district of northwestern Ontario, by the provincial government. He has held that position ever since and his services to the profession here have been invaluable.

In spring, 1836, he was adopted by Peter Erb who resided on the old 'Erb Farm' about two miles north of Bridgeport. In 1843, when he was eighteen years of age, he came to Jonas C. Shantz's, Wilmot Township, where he was engaged as farm hand for one year. From here he went to Copetown, Wentworth County, where he served his apprenticeship at the shoemaking trade for three years with one Jasper Dresser. In 1847 he returned to Waterloo County and engaged himself to Mr. John Salyards of Preston to work at his trade, in whose service he remained one year. In fall of 1849 he engaged the Reist school (S.S. No. 14) and in 1850 he taught the River Bank School (S.S. No. 15). On June 10th, 1851, he married to Hannah, daughter of John and Judith (Bingeman) Schneider. After his marriage he worked at his trade for three years, having his shop in his present residence. After the expiration of the three years, he, in 1854, commenced to teach again and taught almost steadily up to 1884 when he retired from the profession. He is now on the superannuated list, receiving a yearly pension of $132. He resides at his old home near Bloomingdale where he has spent many a happy day in his life, and is quite well yet considering his age and the great amount of mental work he has performed in his time. Many good wishes for his happiness in the evening of his far advanced life. (Since writing the biography of Mr. Thomas he died suddenly, May 8th, 1895) To him and his wife was born a family of six children"1a

A neighbor, Mrs. Sebleski, went to the Thomasing home to buy some wood. She found the body of the old man lying in the barn beside the hay wagon which he had apparently fallen to the floor and being stun? had frozen to death before regaining consciousness. Other neighbors were called and on investigation they found the woman's frozen body lying on the floor in the bedroom with her arms folded across her body as if she had been laid out.

The brother and sister had lived together on the place for many years but being very retiring had not mingled much with the neighbors. Mrs. Sebleski had not seen either brother of sister for about six weeks but the assessor had been at the farm about a week before the bodies were found. Five sisters survive, namely: Mrs. Ed McEllistrum, Elmira; Mrs. Straub, Waterloo; Mrs. Matthias, Kissuth; and two living in Michigan.1a

30181 Sudden Death in Galt. Mr. James Thompson, Barber, of Galt, died suddenly on Tuesday evening last. The deceased was familiarly known as "Judge" Thompson, and was very much respected. He was born in Virginia, in 1788, and was 75 years of age. He was born a slave, but his master dying, he was set at liberty. He lived in Niagara for some time, and was one of the ring-leaders in the riot at that place (about 1836), by which a slave was taken from the officers of justice, and prevented from being given to an American who wished to take him back to slavery. The slave was secreted in his house for some days. He resided in Galt about 20 years, and acted as ruling elder in the Baptist church, which was built principally through his instrumentality.1a

The Public Schools of Galt


By James E. Kerr

The first school in Galt of which I can find any authentic record was a small roughcast building at the corer of Wellington and Main Streets. It was erected in 1832 and was used as a school until about 1850. The name of the teacher which became indissolubly connected with this little school was John Gowanlock. The Hon. James Young who was one of his pupils thus describes him: "He was an excellent specimen of the old fashioned dominie before the days of county boards and periodical examinations. His teaching was eminently practice. He knew what the birch was for and he applied it, He frittered away no time on physiology, botany, or philosophical abstractions. He professed to teach the R's and he did it and did it well."

In the 30's the common schools were maintained by the fees obtained from the parents of the children and by supplementary government grants. By the Common School Acts of 1841 and 1843 the townships were divided into districts or sections, trustees were elected, the legislature's grants were greatly increased and municipal councils were empowered to raise for school purposes an amount which would at least be equivalent to the government grant. In the Act of 1850 permission was given for the freeholders of any school section to determine whether their school should be maintained by a monthly fee in addition to a tax on the ratable property of the section, or whether rate bills should be abolished ad the school declared free. When by the Act of 1871 free schools were made compulsory most of the public schools of the province had already become free.

In Galt and throughout the township there was a great difference of opinion and a great deal of heated discussion on the subject of free schools. Mr. Wm. Dickson, Mr. Shade and other leading men in the village were opposed to being taxed for the education of the children of other people. As the two gentlemen named had no children of their own the benefit to themselves of the proposal was not at first obvious. On the other side "Judge" Thompson, the coloured barber and preacher of the village who had his quiver full of children, was a strong advocate of free schools, In course of time, the villagers all came round to the liberal view.2a

30183 JAMES "JUDGE" THOMPSON 1835-1899

James H. "Judge" Thompson was a black barber and Baptist preacher. He was the son of James and Lucy Thompson, former slaves who had moved to Canada from the United States. His father, also a barber, was one of the founders of the black Baptist church which held services, in the 1850's and 1860's, in a small rough cast frame building on King St., now part of Ainslie St. Mr. Thompson was described as a powerful preacher delivering "impressive discourses to large congregations". The Baptist congregation led by Mr. Thompson, is said to have disintegrated in the 1860's as members moved to other parts of the province. However, there was a renewal of the Baptist congregation in 1875 with the formation of the Galt Baptist Church. This church, in turn, became the South Water Street Baptist Church. Mr. Thompson died on March 6, 1899.

30194 Death Calls Many Leaders All Phases of Civic Life Are Affected; Three Clerics Die
The death of Charles Bruder, widely known hotel operator, on the second last day of 1940 climaxes a lengthy list of prominent deaths in both Kitchener and Waterloo this year. Practically every phase of community life was affected. Although possibly business suffered most through the loss of eight executives, industrial, civic and social circles were also hit. Clergymen, a lawyer, a dentist and a former police chief were also called by death.
In the passing of O.W. Thompson, 57, who died Nov. 19, the community lost a man long interested in civic and political affairs. He was a former alderman and Conservative candidate in the 1937 election. Mr. Thompson was a fox rancher.

30200 GALT.

THIS is a busy, growing place, numbering about three thousand inhabitants: forty colored. An account of the colored population will be found in the testimonies which follow.

WILLIAM THOMPSON.

I was born eighteen miles from Richmond. My master was my father and used me kindly, but gave me no instruction at school. I witnessed no barbarity myself, but have seen slaves handcuffed and kept in jail. I have heard their cries when they were punished. Slavery has no pleasances: it is cousin to hell. A slave cannot pray right: while on his knees, he hears his master, "here, John!"--and he must leave his God and go to his master.

There are in Galt about forty colored people. As a general thing, they are more industrious, frugal, and temperate than the whites. There is but one colored person in this town who has been here longer than myself. There are six heads of families and one single man who own real estate.

I know the sentiments of the colored people here, and they have the greatest detestation of slavery. Freedom is sweet to them. They have tried the bitter and the sweet: nearly all the grown people have been slaves.

My master set his slaves free,--some three hundred of them. Some were sold again, by breaking of the will, or in some way. My brother George and I should have received some fifteen thousand dollars a piece, but for the same reason. I went to meeting on a Sunday after I had seen the gang chained, but the preaching did me no good.

I knew a man at the South who had six children by a colored slave. Then there was a fuss between him and his wife, and he sold all the children but the oldest slave daughter. Afterward, he had a child by this daughter, and sold mother and child before the birth. This was nearly forty years ago. Such things are done frequently in the South. One brother sells the other: I have seen that done. True, I have not seen any barbarities, as some have.

The colored children can all go to school here in Galt, and are generally sent to school. The black horse and the white are both ignorant: there is prejudice on both sides. When I came here, colored children were not received into the schools. I fought, and fought, and fought, and at last it got to the governor, and the law was declared, that all had equal rights. Colored people were scarce in Canada twenty-six years ago. There were but five in Toronto.1a

30206 PRIVATE ROLAND WILLIAM THOMS

In the early morning hours of 10 July 1943 Canadian troops landed on the southwest shore of the Pachino peninsula in the southeastern corner of Sicily. The assault troops of 1 Canadian Infantry Division were assigned several key missions that day, beyond getting ashore and clearing the beach defences. First, they were to capture Italian coastal defence artillery batteries within range of the landing beach to protect the invasion fleet. Royal Navy warships bombarded and temporarily suppressed enemy heavy guns during the assault, but it was up to the infantry to capture or and destroy those gun batteries. The second task was to secure enemy airfields in the invasion area to deny their use to the enemy and free them for Allied aircraft. Finally, the assault troops needed to consolidate their positions ashore in order to meet expected Axis counterattacks. The thin screen of Italian coastal defence units the Canadians met on D-Day were meant to delay and disorganize the invasion force as it came ashore and warn counterattack forces of the landing location. The Canadians accomplished their D-Day mission at a cost of seven killed and twentyfive wounded. One of the first men killed was Private Roland William Thoms. Thoms was one of three members of the Royal Canadian Regiment killed during their attack on a pair of Italian shore batteries and Pachino airfield. The airfield was surrounded by a defensive pillbox and bunker network. Private Roland William Thoms was killed when the Royal Canadian Regiment mopped up pillboxes on the high ground beyond the airfield. Roland hailed from a family of seven. He left behind two brothers, one of whom also served overseas, two sisters and his mother and father, Alvin and Elizabeth Thoms. The family hailed from St. Jacobs, Ontario. Roland was also survived by his wife, Mrs. Edith Thoms, who he married only three days prior to enlisting. Roland was born in 1915, and by 1940, he had established himself as a shoemaker in St. Jacobs. He practiced this profession for just over a decade before enlisting on 2 July 1940 in Kitchener, Ontario. Private Thoms completed infantry training at Camp Borden, and proceeded overseas to join the RCR in the fall of 1941. He embarked for Sicily with the Royal Canadian Regiment in mid-June 1943 and lays there still.1a

30242 John J. Thorpe trained race horses in Waterloo
Yesterday's Heroes

By Jeff Hicks, Record Staff

If John J. Thorpe were still around, he'd likely light a cigarette to celebrate his recent induction into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame. Of course, the late head trainer for the once-mighty Seagram Stable of Waterloo would first have to find someone to bum a smoke from. For Thorpe, who died in 1974 after suffering a stroke at age 89, that was a quirky trademark of a man considered to be one of Canada's greatest thoroughbred trainers. "He never bought a cigarette but he sponged off everybody," chuckled 79-year-old Eileen Dreisinger, a Waterloo resident and one of Thorpe's three children, including Bob Thorpe and the late Jack Jr. "But, you know, he never inhaled. He would just puff on them. I guess that's what saved him because he lived a good, long life. And he had a remarkably successful and lengthy career: Thorpe galloped and exercised winners of 13 King's and Queen's Plates, Canada's pre-eminent prize in thoroughbred horse racing. He took over as Seagram's headman in 1933 and saddled Queen's Plate champion Sally Fuller two years later. Thorpe, who was born in Toronto's Cabbagetown in 1885, first went to work as an exercise boy for the famous Seagram Stable at the age of 13. He was initially hired after Joseph E. Seagram, patriarch of the Canadian whiskey distiller, saw him hanging around the old Woodbine track in Toronto. After being hired, Thorpe moved to Waterloo, where the main Seagram stables were located off Bridgeport Road for more than 80 years. The last beams of those barns, which once housed 160 horses, were removed in 1969 to make way for an apartment tower at Lincoln Road and Weber Street. The Seagram family's connection to the racing dynasty faded by the late 1970s. By that time, Seagram horses had won the Queen's Plate 20 times. Still, the legend of John Thorpe endures, as his October induction into the Hall of Fame at Woodbine proves. Thorpe served 62 years for the Seagram family before retiring in 1960. "He was a very wise horse guy," said Bob Thorpe, an 83-year-old Waterloo resident who worked with his father for 21 years. "He was never thrown off a horse. The only time he came off, the horse had fallen. And he was back on before the horse could get up. He could handle any kind of horse. It wasn't strength. It was all horse wisdom." As Bob recalls, his father's favourite horse was Canada's first great race horse, an ill-tempered rogue named Inferno. That horse kicked down so many wooden stall gates at the Waterloo stable that an iron door blocked the entrance to Inferno's stall. Thorpe regularly galloped Inferno, the bay colt which won the King's Plate in 1905. For Dreisinger, memories of her father and the Seagram Stable remind her of a happy childhood in Waterloo. "As children, we lived over there," she said. "That was our playground, the Seagram stables." But there are sad memories too. Thirteen years ago, Dreisinger's son, Mike Chris, was killed on the training track at Woodbine after being thrown from a horse into a rail. Chris, an exercise rider at 39, had been following in the footsteps of his grandfather and his father Bill, also a trainer. "Michael, like his grandfather, loved horses," Dreisinger said. "He was a fantastic young lad with horses too." And that's how John Thorpe will be remembered. A fantastic horse man who had a young man's mischievously-playful attitude, especially when he was conning colleagues into giving him free cigarettes. "He wouldn't have cigarettes with him, although he did smoke all his life," said Bob, who once pressed his father on the issue of his tobacco habit. If he didn't inhale, why did he smoke? That's what Bob wanted to know. Thorpe's answer was simple. "I just enjoy it," he said.1a

The late Mr. Tilt, who was in his 70th year, had been in failing health forthe past two years and his death, although it came as a shock to his wide circle of friends, was not entirely unexpected.

During a part of this period he was also in the cattle business associated with Menno Hallman of Roseville and the late John Brown of Galt. After he severed his connection with the Massey-Harris Company, about 1908, Mr. Tilt conducted a cattle business on a more extensive scale, until a few years ago when he retired. Held Clerkship 35 Years

Mr. Tilt and his father combined to make what is, in allprobability, a record in that, between them, they held the clerkship of the Waterloo Township Council for a period of 65 years, the late G. A. Tilt having been clerkof the Township for 35 years. Prominent in Municipal Affairs in 1918. Mr. Tilt removed his residence to Preston, living in the large stone house now the Memorial Home. Several years ago he moved to his late residence, Dover and William Streets. Since coining to Preston. Mr. Tilt has been prominent in municipal affairs.

The first meeting to examine teachers in this county was held at Freeport in December, 1843. The commissioners present were Dr. Fulsom, James Phin, William Tilt, Jacob Lutz and a Church of England clergyman from Guelph who presided. The candidates for certificates were Amos Adams, Benjamin Burkholder, Nelson Newcombe, Elias Eby and one Lazarus who was then teaching in Berlin. Mr. Lazarus, after glancing around the room and making an estimate of the calibre of the Board, walked out remarking quite audibly that he was not going to be examined by a "set of farmers." The other four received their certificates, the first issued in the county, but Mr. Lazarus received none and had to resign his position in Berlin. For subsequent examinations teachers were obliged to go to Guelph, the then county town of the united counties of Wellington, Waterloo and Grey.

....The most prominent teachers of those early days were Benjamin Eby (Bishop), James Deary or Derry, William Tilt, James Dickson, James Milroy, William Veitch, Noah Bechtel, William Telfer, Isaac Z. Hunsicker, Jonathan Good and John Bowman (father of the late I. E. Bowman, M. P.). ....

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

_______________________________

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

30292 Grim search for body at Waterloo landfill enters fourth week

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

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

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

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

30293 MARTIN MILNE TODD

1891-1963 Married: Minnie E. Clare

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

30295 MARTIN N. TODD

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

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

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

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

The Todd Milling Company

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

MARTIN N. TODD

1858-1917 Married: Joanna Gilholm

Martin Nichol Todd was born in Galt on July 27, 1858, the son of Thomas Todd and Sibella Nichol. He received his primary education at Galt's Central Public School and his secondary education at the Galt Grammar School, later the Galt Collegiate Institute. After completing school he moved to Hamilton where he was employed by the Great Western Railway. After a few years in Hamilton, Mr. Todd returned to Galt where he worked with his father in Thomas Todd & Son Ltd. also known as the Galt Flour Mills. The company did a large commission and export business in grain and hay and operated two malt houses, one in Galt and the other in Port Hope. Mr. Todd's father was one of Galt's prominent industrialists and an original promoter of the Galt, Preston and Hespeler Street Railway, an electric rail line that moved goods and passengers between those three municipalities. On January 1, 1900, following the death of his father, Mr. Todd became president of the railway. He set about expanding the line until it became one of the best interurban electric rail systems in the country. Mr. Todd was also the manager, and later vice-president, of the Lake Erie and Northern Railway and ensured that the rail line used electricity instead of steam as its power source. Mr. Todd was also one of the founders, in 1906, of the Galt Malleable Iron Company, and had an interest in the Preston Car and Coach Co., in the Stamped and Enamelled Ware Co. of Hespeler and in the Canada Malting Co. He also had a farm east of Galt where he took a particular interest in breeding Dorset sheep. Mr. Todd was associated with the Galt Horse Show from its inception in 1901 and served as the president of the Horse Show for many years. Mr. Todd was also a member of the Galt Hospital Trust for many years. He died on August 29, 1917 and is buried in Mount View Cemetery.

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

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

30300 Kitchener soldier killed in Afghanistan

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

________________________________


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

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

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

KNECHTEL. Sussannah, widow of the late Daniel L. Knechtel of Kitchener, Ont., died at her home Nov 13, 1935. She suffered considerably in her time, being at death's door a number of times. However, she bore all with the finest of Christian fortitude. Her perennial cheerfulness was one of her marked traits. Her steady faith in the Lord carried her through a multitude of hard experiences. She was the second oldest member of the First Mennonite Church of Kitchener. She was a faithful and highly esteemed member. Though frail, old, and her back bent to well nigh the thighs, she was loved and respected by the young, whose interests were always upon her heart. She will be greatly missed by pastor and members. She is survived by 4 sons and 1 daughter (Albert, Allen, and William, all of Kitchener; Jacob of Mannheim, and Mrs Albert Huffman of Kitchener); also 28 grandchildren and 33 great-grandchildren survive. Two services were held - one at her home church (Kitchener), the other at her church of earlier days (Mannheim). She was buried at the latter cemetery. The following brethren were in charge: C. F. Derstine, S. F. Coffman, and Manasses Hallman.2a

30357 KITCHENER \emdash Ruth Norton, widow of a soda merchant, died in 1944 and left a mystery behind.

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

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

30382 Charles J. Trapp St. Jacobs Merchant Passes Suddenly

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

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

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

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

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

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

Missing man's remains to be returned to lake

Waterloo Region Record By Greg Mercer

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

30399 SIMPERING JIM ALLISON

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

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

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

"Going, Tony?" called the woman.

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

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

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

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

"What's the matter?" asked Orr.

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

"What's the matter?" demanded Orr.

"Oh, nothing," laughed Allison.

"What's up?" roared Orr.

"Your wife's gone," said Allison.

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

"My wife's gone!" shouted Orr.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"I sat down and faced this boy.

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

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

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

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

"'How did you know she was gone?'

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"'That's enough,' I said.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

__________________________

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

30401 Henry Tribe is my 3rd great grandfather. He was part of the Petworth emigration with (some) of his family in 1832. His daughter, Charlotte married Joseph Evans sometime shortly after her arrival in the Waterloo area of Ontario.These are my 2nd great grandparents. A letter cited in your book was written from Charlotte to her brother back in Sussex, England and signed by her husband (Joseph "Neuroke" Evans).

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

30402 Mr. and Mrs. Tribe, with their family, came from Sussex, England, in the year 1832. Mr. Tribe died during the first winter that the family was in Canada and was buried near Cornell's, on the site of which is now the 'Cress House' in Preston. In this family there were: Benjamin, who married Mary Ann Lepard and lived in Pilkington; Johnathan married Martha Cornell, while Harry and Richard were not married. The daughters were Sarah, who was Mrs. Rapson; Charlotte was Mrs. Evans, and Mary was Mrs. Thomas Irvine, of Paisley, and it was at her home that her mother, Mrs. Tribe, died. Jane Tribe was married in Sussex, England, to Jesse Penfold, who had been a soldier and in service at the City of Quebec about 1814. They, with Mrs. Penfold's parents, came to Canada in 1832.

The members of this, the older Penfold family, children of Jesse Penfold and Jane Tribe, were: Matilda, born in Sussex, England, on the same day as Queen Victoria, May 24th, 1819, and came to Canada in 1832. She was married to Thomas Adsett and they lived on a farm on the east side of the river road, which was the next farm south of Mr. Wollis'. They afterwards removed to Guelph, where Mr. Adsett died on April 21st, 1870, at the age of seventy. Mrs. Adsett was again married to the late James Hall, of Winterbourne, and died April 24th, 1896, at the age of seventy six years and ten months. Jesse Penfold married Hannah Wismer; Caroline married Henry Wilbee, a son of Henry Wilbee, of Elora, and now lives in Brussels; Esther, born on board ship in 1832, married Owen Roberts and lived for many years where the Cascade Creek crosses the road near Thomas Cleghorn's farm in Pilkington, but, with a large family, moved to Kansas; Harriet married John Scully and their family all live in Berlin.

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

30403 Continuing along the river road to the northward, on the east side of the river, we come to the new Guelph & Goderich Railway, which has been under construction during the past year The first to take up a farm in this neighborhood was one by the name of Isaac Kepke. He was followed by Michael Spiez and then, on the same farm, west of the river road and that through which the railway is built, was Jonathan Tribe. Jonathan Tribe married Martha Cornell and those in their family were: Nathaniel married Phoebe Lawrence . Thomas married Annias Sugg; Martha was unmarried; Miriam married Oscar Woodward; William married and lived in Michigan; Joseph and Alice went west to Alberta.
Jonathan Tribe died on March 1 2th, 1872, at the age of forty nine years and nine months. Mrs. Tribe went west, and died near Calgary, Alberta.

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

30410 FREDERICK TRISINGER is one of the stockholders and a prominent member of the Wakarusa Lumber Company, which is one of the most active firms in its line of work in the county. Mr. Trisinger was born in Canada, September 11, 1853, to Adam and Julia A. (Ohlheiser) Trisinger, the former of whom was born in Germany in 1826, or about that time, and was a son of Frederick and Julia A. Trisinger, who came to America with their family and settled in Canada, where a number of years were spent. They then came to Elkhart county, Ind. (in 1860), but the grandfather died during the trip and the grandmother passed from this life in St. Joseph county, Ind., about 1872. They reared a family of five children: Adam, Jacob, John, Philipbena and Lena, all of whom are living, but only one resides in this section of the county - Lena. The grandfather was a farmer throughout life and succeeded in accumulating a valuable property. Adam Trisinger was the second child born to his parents, and prior to their leaving Germany they acquired a good education in the schools of that country. He grew up on a farm in Canada, but also learned the butcher's trade, which calling he followed the greater part of his life. He was married in Canada and three of his children were born there. In 1856 he located in Elkhart county, Ind., and took up his residence in the vicinity of Wakarusa, after a short residence on that place, and till after the Civil war tilled a farm in Harrison township. He then moved to Bremen, Marshall county, where he conducted a butcher shop two years; then once more returned to Wakarusa, where he resided until his removal to Michigan. From that place he went to St. Joseph county, Ind., and for the past four or five years he has lived in that county. His children are as follows: Jacob, who died at the age of four years; Frederick, the subject of this sketch; Lena, who died in childhood; Mary, who was born in Indiana, is the wife of Jacob Harrington, and is a resident of Olive township, Elkhart county; and Catherine, who was born in Indiana, died in childhood. The mother of these children died in 1864, having been born in Germany. Like her husband she removed to Canada where her early life was spent. She was a life-long member of the German Lutheran Church, was a noble mother and a faithful and affectionate wife. After her death the father took for his second wife Miss Julia A. Burlingcourt, who is still living and has borne him five children: Lucinda, who is married and lives in South Bend, Ind.; Elizabeth, who also resides there; John, Solomon and William. Mr. Trisinger is a member of the German Baptist Church, in politics is a Republican, and is well known for his public spirit and intelligence. Frederick Trisinger was a child of three years when he was brought to Elkhart county, and in the public schools of this section he received a good practical, business education. He left home when only thirteen years of age, and since that time has made his own way in the world, and until he was twenty years of age his earnings were given to his father. He learned and worked at the carpenter's trade, succeeded well in his undertakings, and in 1877 engaged in saw-milling, and became a member of the Smeltzer Sons & Co., and since 1879 has helped to operate the business successfully. They manufacture all kinds of lumber for building purposes, and make a specialty of this kind of lumber. The members of this well-known firm are: Jacob H. Dell, John Smeltzer, H. J. Smeltzer, Fred Trisinger and Anthony Smeltzer. The mill has a capacity of 7,000 feet per day, for which a ready and profitable market is found. Mr. Trisinger was married on January 7, 1877, to Miss Elizabeth Smeltzer, a daughter of John Smeltzer. She was born June 29, 1860, and has presented her husband with two children, only one of whom is living, Maudie J., who was born on March 20, 1885. The other child died in infancy. Mr. and Mrs. Trisinger are members of the Christian Church at Wakarusa, and in politics Mr. Trisinger is a Republican, the interests of which he has always furthered to the best of his ability. As a man of affairs he has shown remarkable foresight and it is owing to his good judgment and business acumen that he has accumulated the handsome property of which he is now the owner. He and Mrs. Trisinger are considered among the first people of Wakarusa, and their hospitable home is a favorite resort for their numerous friends.1a

A Visitor from Wakarusa, IndianaMr. Frederick Trisinger Revisits Birthplace

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

30417 Former New Germany Teacher Becomes Leading Montana Citizen

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

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


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

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

Stars as Legislator

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


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

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


Born in Canada

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

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

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

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

Owned Choice Lots

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

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

"Jack is as good as his master there".

30424 103 Years Old County Pioneer Geo. Trussler

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

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

30437 ...told by Mrs. John Bury that when the cemetery [St. Agatha] was first laid out and made ready for burials, a collection was taken up to defray the expenses of clearing and fencing. The collector approached a young man named Zeisele, the hired man of a neighboring farmer. The young man deferred and said he should not be asked to contribute to the work because he might never need the cemetery. A short time after, while logging, he was caught between the logs and crushed to death. Thus he was one of the first to need burial there.1a

30441 LIFETIMES: Wilf Tschirhart loved learning, got PhD at 88
Wilfred (Wilf) Tschirhart of St. Agatha, born: Sept. 2, 1921 in Kitchener, died: Sept. 20, 2017, age related

Wilf Tschirhart was never a man who did the expected.

Take his education. As a kid, Wilf spent hours poking around in the Nith River exploring nature, instead of being in class. Even when he did take in a full day of school, he couldn't wait for the bell to ring in his one room New Hamburg schoolhouse so he could race down to the river's edge.

Everything about nature fascinated him, particularly animal behaviour.

Skip ahead nearly eight decades and there he was on the podium at Wilfrid Laurier University's convocation accepting a PhD in geography and environmental science. Wilf was 88 and obviously wasn't looking toward a career in the sciences, but he had achieved something remarkable and was thought to be the school's oldest graduating PhD student.

The year was 2009 and Wilf was interviewed by the Record about his achievement. His explanation as to why he wanted to complete advance degrees in his 80s was simple: "Doing nothing is like practising for death," he said. "You have to work your brain every day.".....

Wilf was born in Kitchener, one of six kids. But his parents moved to a Haysville farm one cold winter when he was three, perhaps the first time he exhibited a strong-willed determination to not follow the crowd or in this case, his family....

Wilf found a job with N.O. Heipel, a Preston contractor that specialized in building community arenas all over Ontario, but it was while working in North York that he found more than a new project to oversee.

"He met a little Irish lady," said Chris, referring to his mother, Elizabeth Sheridan.

The couple met at a church concert. Elizabeth was already seated when poor Wilf came along, disappointed that the assigned row shown on his ticket was already filled. Elizabeth made the whole row scooch over so Wilf could sit down.

They married in June 1955, and moved into the bungalow on Hidden Valley Road that Wilf had been building long before he met Elizabeth. That little house and its numerous additions '97 it seemed Wilf was never really satisfied the house was done '97 would be home to the couple and their children for many years....

It had been while working on his first degree that Wilf's life took a sad turn. Elizabeth developed Alzheimer's.

"He'd looked after her for five years," said Chris, adding that when his mother finally had to move into long-term care at Freeport Hospital, Wilf would come to the hospital twice a day to feed her. After Elizabeth died in 1999, Wilf set up a university scholarship at his alma mater, in her name.

Throughout his senior years Wilf remained unstoppable, despite a hip replacement, arthritis in every joint and deafness in one ear, the result of a military training accident. He simply learned to read lips and rely on a hearing aid in his less damaged ear. ...

30455 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

30456 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

30458 Description: Patent Data

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

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

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

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

CHARLES TURNBULL


1858-1924 Married: Margaret McIlwraith

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

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

___________________________

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

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

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

Jennie Ferguson (Turnbull) Cowan was born in the Mill Creek area near Galt in 1898, a daughter of Jared Turnbull. She was educated at Mill Creek School and at the Galt Collegiate Institute before graduating from the Toronto Normal School and the University of Toronto. She taught school in Bruce County, Kitchener and Galt. The latter positions assisted in developing a keen interest in the history of Galt and particularly of Waterloo County and she spent much of her life acquiring and sharing her knowledge of the area. She served as the president of the Waterloo Historical Society from 1951 to 1953 and, between 1940 and 1960 was a regular contributor to the Waterloo Historical Society's annual volume. In later years she was a more occasional contributor with her last article appearing in 1984. Mrs. Cowan was active in the Mill Creek Women's Institute and in 1941 and 1942 served on the Board of the Federated Women's Institutes of Ontario. She gave leadership in the Women's Institutes to compile the community histories named for Lady Tweedsmuir and served as London area curator. She felt strongly that these books were useful ways to preserve and share historical information. She was a charter member of the Ontario Pioneer Community Foundation that established the Doon Pioneer Village, now Doon Heritage Crossroads. In 1952 Mrs. Cowan acted as official historian for Waterloo County's centennial. She was on the research committee of the Waterloo County Hall of Fame and was herself elected to the Hall in 1978. Mrs. Cowan died at the age of 88 on November 15, 1986 and is buried in Mount View Cemetery.1a

____________________

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

30501 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.

1908-1995

Tim Turow was born in Ukraine on September 6, 1908 and came to Preston in 1913 with his family. Mr. Turow loved sports and over the years his name became synonymous with sports in Preston.

He was one of the founders of the Preston Minor Baseball Association and coached the Preston Baseball Juniors to the Ontario finals in 1942 losing, in the end, to Windsor. Mr. Turow was a coach for the Preston Riversides of the Inter-County Baseball Association and sat on the executive of the Inter-County Baseball Association in 1943. Mr. Turow sat on the executive of the Ontario Baseball Association (OBA) from 1947 to 1954 acting as the association's president in 1953 and 1954. He was later granted an honourary life membership in the OBA, one of only three life memberships granted by that organization. In further recognition of his contributions to baseball in Ontario, the Ontario Baseball Association presented Mr. Turow with the Volunteer of the Year Award in 1993. Mr. Turow also served the Inter-County Baseball Association as an umpire and was president of the Umpires' Association in 1943. Mr. Turow coached minor softball teams and played junior and senior hockey in Preston in the late 1920's and the early 1930's. He was captain of Galt junior football championship teams in 1928 and 1929 and played football for the Kitchener senior team in 1930-31. He also refereed junior football for several years. Mr. Turow was an active bowler and was president of the Preston Major and Industrial bowling leagues. He was named the sports executive of the year in 1975 by the Waterloo Regional Sports Council and has been elected to the Waterloo County Hall of Fame. He was a member of the Preston Arena Commission from 1962 to 1972 and was the commission's chairman for two years. Mr. Turow started his working life at the age of thirteen as an apprentice stove mounter at the Clare Bros. foundry. For fifteen years, he was the owner of the Ontario Sports sporting goods store in Preston. When Mr. Turow retired in 1972 he was given a party at which he was presented with a trophy in recognition of his accomplishments. That trophy, now known as the Tim Turow Award, has been presented annually to the Cambridge Athlete of the Year. Mr. Turow died on August 19, 1995 and is buried in St. Clement's Cemetery.

30525 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.

30527 William Twaits was born in Galt where he excelled in various athletic activities. Playing for his native town in the early 1900s he acquired fame as one of hockey's outstanding players. This was in the era of seven man hockey with little or no substitutes. Stamina, speed and skill was a definite essential to compete with top teams including Berlin, Toronto and others.

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

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

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.

30538 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

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

30573 Tyson, "Of the many Dutch Non-conformists families coming to America during the Colonial times, the Tysons were the earliest and most prominent. We find that one Reynier Tyson with twelve other men and families, a company comprising thirty-three persons, came across the sea and settled at Germantown, Pennsylvania, in 1692, if not earlier. This Tyson must have been a prominent member among these early settlers as we find his signature, together with others, on a certain certificate of complaint against one by name of Keith, issued at a general or quarterly meeting held at Philadelphia, 1692 or 1693, and this certificate was taken to London, England in 1693 by one Samuel Jennings who presented it before and annual meeting there. Then again we find that in 1703 one by the name of Cornelius Tyson came from Crefeld, Germany, and settled at Germantown, Pennsylvania. This Tyson died May 9th, 1716, and his body was interred in Axe's Graveyard, Germantown, where an intimate friend of his, by name of Pastorius had erected on his grave a tombstone. It bears the following inscription in Dutch:

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

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

30585 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

Upon graduation he worked as a bank clerk in Berlin (Kitchener), Brantford, New Hamburg, and Toronto. In 1914 he enlisted in the 118th Battalion North Waterloo serving overseas for four years. He later worked as a foreman at the Dominion Rubber Company for 15 years and from 1940-1948, Uffelman served as the Town of Waterloo's Assessment Commissioner and Tax Collector. Athletically inclined, Uffelman played hockey with the Waterloo and Kitchener O.H.A. teams and was also a member of the Toronto Argonauts team. His civic interests included the Waterloo Board of Trade where he served as president, the Waterloo Young Men's Club, the Masonic Lodge, the Germania Lodge (Independent Order of Odd Fellows) and the Waterloo Musical Society where he served as an officer. Uffelman was first elected as a councillor in 1927. He successfully completed four terms, two as reeve from 1929-30, prior to his election as mayor in 1931.

30588 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

30589 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

30591 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

30594 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

After about a year they moved to the Elmira creamery building on the north-west side of Elmira and while here Emil became employed as a maintenance man at the Dominion Tires Co. in Kitchener. 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.

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.

30613 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.

30684 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

30689 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

30690 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

30694 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

30695 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.

____________________

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.

30706 David Leighton Valentine's father David Valentine entered the Navy in 1779 as an Able seaman and served on several ships then was promoted to Lieutenant in July 1793. His first ship as a Lieutenant was the Seagull, then he was transferred to the Thames under Capt. Cotes. In October of that year, they were involved in a battle with the French frigate Uranie, he was wounded and taken prisoner and spent two years in a French prison. 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

30707 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

30723 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
