36019 Geordie Waddie was a character and a half and lived in Galt in the early 1900s. A Scot, he worked in the knitting room at the C. Turnbull Company mill on Water St. (where Mill Race Park now sits) winding yarn onto bobbins to be knit into underwear.

This trio (the Waddies lived in part of the Wilson home on Water Street) travelled by street car to Preston to have this photo taked by the celebrated photographer James Esson. Waddie was known for his broad Scottish accent and his habit of over-indulging on Saturdays and paydays. When he would fail to return home, Jeannie would tour the pubs to find him. Apparently, she once had to lead him home by rope. Nevertheless, he was a cheerful fellow friend to every galtonian, and would occasionally hand out pennies to children so they could buy sweets. Jeannie was famous in town for the haggis she made.

Her loving daughter, Yvette Cybulskie (Ric) and granddaughters Cara-Mae Hackett (Tony O'Neill) and Leah MacLeod.

Born in Kitchener on July 11, 1923 to parents Leo L. Wadel and Johanna (nee Goetz). Norma grew up as an only child but had many cousins and friends over the years and will be missed by many.

She was a devoted member of many choirs over the years including, the KW Philharmonic, St. Joseph's (Stratford), St. Mary's (Kitchener), St Louis and St. Michael's (Waterloo) and St. Agatha.

Norma was quick to share a memory, a song, or a drink with those who knew her. She also enjoyed card games and cribbage and in her past created a number of beautiful oil paintings.

Our family would like to especially thank the staff at Derbecker's Heritage House for their exemplary care of Norma.

Norma Marie Wadel
 
36025 Writer, mentor, wife, great-grandmother. Born on Jan. 17, 1925, in Markham, Ont.; died on July 20, 2015, in Toronto, of complications from Alzheimer's disease, aged 90.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Little Step Away

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

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

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

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

-O. J. Hanson

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

36104 Two Motor at Fatalities at Kitchener

Wife of Former New Hamburg Resident Killed

Two lives were lost and a third person was seriously injured in motor accidents which occurred on King street, Kitchener, on Saturday night. Albert McGruther, formerly of Parry Sound, was the first victim, and Mrs. Edward Ludwig, of 101 Wellington street, was the second. McGruther. who was riding a bicyle [sic] beside a moving van, in which be was transferring his household effects from Waterloo to Lancaster street, Kitchener, was knocked down from behind by a motor car driven by Russel Hahn of Heidelberg. Hahn is being held on a charge of manslaughter.

The second accident was the most unusual and tragic. Mrs. Edward Ludwig and her husband were knocked down from behind, when a riderless motorcyle [sic], with a side car, jumped from the pavement onto the sidewalk, crashing into the couple, killing Mrs. Ludwig almost instantaneously and seriously injuring her husband.

The cause of the accident was a crash between two motorcycles about a block east of where the other fatality occurred. William Schaefer, who was riding the motorcycle, which killed Mrs. Ludwig, was knocked from his machine by a motorcycle driven by Walter Heiser, as a result of the latter trying pass Schaefer's machine and crashing into it as he was about to pass.

Schaefer was thrown from his machine and the motorcycle going at high speed continued riderless, dashing west on King street for about 300 yards, when it leaped suddenly to the sidewalk, bowling over Mr. and Mrs. Ludwig. The cycle kept on its wild career along the sidewalk and was finally stopped. when it crashed into the new office building of the Kaufman Rubber Company at present under construction.

The stricken couple were carried into the office of Dr. Shields, which was nearby. By that time Mrs. Ludwig was dead. Mr. Ludwig was then taken to the hospital. For about two hours he was unconscious, slight concussion of the brain having resulted. He passed a bad night, but on Sunday morning had improved and examination showed that the injuries were only external. Schaefer and Heiser are being held on charges of manslaughter.

Albert McGruther, the first victim, was attended to by Dr. Hamilton, but died before reaching the hospital. He has a wife and two small children. The accident happened a few hundred yards west of the G. T. R. crossing on King St. When his bicycle was hit, McGruther was thrown onto the hood of the motor car, his head breaking the windshield. His body was then hurled about 50 feet and landed in front of an approaching street car.

The late Mrs. Ludwig was formerly Miss Ethel Wagner, and was born in Kitchener on May 29th, 1893. Her father, William Wagner, died about three years ago. She was married to Mr. Edward Ludwig last February. Her husband was a resident of New Hamburg for many years, having left here for Kitchener a little over a year ago, and the entire community will sympathize with him in his sudden and tragic bereavement. Besides her stricken husband she is survived by four brothers and four sisters. Deceased was a member of Zion Evangelical Church, Kitchener, and also a member of the church choir. The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon from her late home on Wellington street to Mount Hope Cemetery.

New Hamburg Independent, November 5, 1920

_______________________

Accidental death was the verdict returned by the coroner's jury, which on Wednesday investigated the circumstances of the death of Mrs. E. Ludwig, who was killed last Saturday at Kitchener when she was struck by a riderless motorcycle, following a collision between two machines driven by Walter Hauser and William Schaefer. The two drivers were taken into custody on a charge of manslaughter. Fifteen witnesses were heard. Evidence of witnesses who saw the drivers at the time of the accident went to show that neither of them were under the influence of liquor. Coroner J. F. Honsberger presided. Crown Attorney Bowlby stated that the charge of manslaughter would not be pressed.

36114 From : A Genealogical Record of the Descendants of Christian and Hans MEYER and Other Pioneers Together with Historical and Biographical Sketches, Illustrated with Eighty-seven Portraits and Other Illustrations Repository: Call Number: R929.2 M613 Media: Book (page 122-124)...

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

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

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

36132 Mike Wagner Heritage Awards

Named in honour of Mike Wagner, a former Kitchener city councillor who was a strong advocate for heritage, culture and the arts, this bi-annual award recognizes and pays tribute to individuals, property owners, businesses, organizations and institutions who have contributed to the conservation of the City's cultural heritage resources 
Mike Wagner
 
36133 Born in Kitchener in 1931, Mike Wagner spent 32 years as a teacher of English, 29 of them at Eastwood Collegiate Institute. After retiring from teaching, he entered municipal politics in 1990. As a Councillor from 1990 to 1997, Mike Wagner was a tireless campaigner for heritage preservation. His efforts and accomplishments touch upon many facets of heritage, including architectural conservation, cultural celebration and education. He was instrumental in the City of Kitchener's decision to establish a heritage planning function in 1992 and subsequently the position of Heritage Planner in 1993. He was a leading supporter of strengthening the City's Municipal Plan heritage policies as part of the Official Plan review process.

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

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

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

To this union were born two sons and four daughters, all of whom reside in Waterloo County and who, with their mother, remain to mourn their sudden bereavement, but not as those who have no hope.

His remains were buried in the Cressman church cemetery on the 26th of February.

______________________

Henry B. Wahl was born in Wilmot township, Oct. 9, 1840 and came with parents Heinrich and Maria Wahl to Rosendale, where he lived until his marriage to Sarah (Shoemaker) Bingeman, widow of Isaac Bingeman of Breslau, on Dec. 7, 1867. They were married by Pastor F. R. Reissman, Lutheran. - Witnesses: H. Eby and A. Petersen.

Acreage was purchased in Horning's Tract and a house and barn erected in 1867. The house was a small frame building and the barn was also small and quite low. This farm is composed of small parcels of land purchased at various intervals. In earlier days the purchase was not recorded until paid for, and this explains the later dates of acquisition.

June 3, 1869 - James Alderson to Henry B. Wahl - 13.14 acres Horning's Tract
Dec. 1, 1869 - James Alderson to Henry B. Wahl - 17.75 acres -$115 Horning's Tract
Dec. 28, 1878 - Wm. B. Thomas to Henry B. Wahl - 31-0-17 acres - Lot ,#53 North of Horning's
Apr. 9, 1879 - Menno Bowman to Henry B. Wahl - 20-0-0 acres - Lot ,#53 North of Horning's
Apr. 8, 1882 - Menno Bowman to Henry B. Wahl - 19 1/8 acres - Lot ,#53 North of Horning's
Mar. 22, 1892 Geo. B. Smith to Henry B. Wahl - 43.6 acres - Horning's Tract $2,180

There were six children born here [Rosendale] who attended S.S.#12 Bloomingdale school. Henry B. Wahl was a Lutheran and Mrs. Wahl was Mennonite, so they compromised and attended her church Snyder's Mennonite church, Bloomingdale. He was a Sunday School superintendent here for some time. A rule of the Mennonite church forbade the use of alcohol, but Henry Wahl had his own convictions on the subject. He would say "Ay gloss beer con ma hovva, ova ains is genunk" (one may have a glass of beer but one is enough).

Henry B. Wahl was also a shoemaker. He kept a suoply of leather on hand and made shoes for neighbors and his family. Sometimes some of the children, especially the girls, would complain about their heavy shoes, which were made of second or third grade leather. The best grades were manufactured into shoes for customers who paid cash.

The daughters made their own dresses at fourteen years of age. No patterns were provided and dresses in this era took a great deal of material and look quite complicated in comparison to our present day styles.
Mixed farming was the method of agriculture, and the usual livestock composed of grade cattle , pigs, horses, chickens, etc. were kept. The family contributed the farm labor until they married and left for homes of their own. Henry B. Wahl died Feb. 24, 1904 and is buried in the Cressman Mennonite cemetery, Breslau, Ontario.

Mrs. Henry B. Wahl continued farming operations with the help of her sons Henry Allan and Solomon Edward, until 1910, when Solomon was married. Now the house was divided, Mrs, Wahl and son Henry Allan occupying the one part and Solomon and his bride the other part. Mrs. Henry B. Walh milked her own cow and maintained a garden, which supplied her needs. She maintained and drove her own horse and buggy until she was 80 years olf and over. She was quite content to live in a primitive manner, and refused to have hydro install. In 1913 son Henry Allan moved to the village of Bloomingdale. Mrs. Wahl continued living her until her death in Jan 1924. She is buried in the Cressman Mennonite cemetery, Breslau.

36175 An enterprising young German came here [Preston] about 1838 by name of Mr. Jacob Beck. He had invented a peculiar kind of water-wheel, small in size but of great power, and its use in several small water powers gave young Mr. Beck quite a reputation. He commenced a small foundry near a saw-mill in the village of New Hope, and finding considerable encouragement came to Preston, where he erected a foundry upon the premises now owned by Peter E. Shantz in Fountain Street. Business increased rapidly, but unfortunately a fire broke out which completely destroyed his flourishing foundry and Mr. Beck, no insurance having been effected, stood once more poor and penniless; but, thanks to the liberality of his neighbors in and around Preston, a subscription was raised, men turned out to help with work and material and in a short time after the fire, Mr. Beck was again in possession of a foundry of considerably larger dimensions than the one destroyed by fire. He did an excellent business, and had men selling his stoves and other wares over a large part of Western Ontario. His means increased at a rapid rate, and he enlarged his premises according to the wants of his business. Some years later he took in as partners two of the young men in his employ, viz: John Clare and Valentine Wahn, and the foundry business continued to prosper for several years. Mr. Beck had in the meantime arranged with Mr. Robert Hunt of the Woolen Mills to improve his water power by heightening the dam and digging a canal from the dam alongside the (Speed River. This canal is still in existence except a small portion of its terminus which has recently been closed. Mr. Beck for the construction of the said canal obtained the privilege of erecting a saw-mill upon Mr. Hunt's premises. This saw-mill Mr. Beck carried on for some time but seeing that a grand scheme that he had in mind could not be carried out, he sold his sawmill to Messrs. Hunt & Elliott. This grand scheme was nothing less than extending the said canal, crossing King Street and Queen Street and erecting along the canal a number of factories and mills. The proprietor of the land positively refused to grant permission to construct such a canal and Mr. Beck was forced to abandon his cherished plan of making Preston a great manufacturing place, such as the Town of Galt is at the present day. Mr. Beck, notwithstanding the good business done in his foundry, became displeased with Preston. The partnership of Beck, Clare & Wahn was abruptly dissolved, the business closed and the affairs of the firm wound up. Each partner obtained his proper share of the assets, which were largely in excess of the liabilities, Mr. Clare a store and other property and Jacob Beck a large sum of money. He went in search of a mill property which he found in Wilmot. There he erected mills, foundry and other industries, and founded a village which he named Baden. The grist-mill built by him was the third grist-mill built with money earned in Preston.

VALENTINE WAHN

c.1820-1883

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

36179 THE TED WAKE LOUNGE

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

GEORGE E. "TED" WAKE 1910-1988

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

36192 Grantham & Co., Stoves, Tinware, etc, Main Street - Galt is well provided with first-class business houses where goods can be purchased as cheaply and of as good quality as in any other city in the Dominion. Among those prominently identified in the stove and hardware line is the firm of Messrs. Grantham & Co., whose premises are located on Main Street, and are 26x40 feet in dimensions and two stories in height. Here is carried in stock a splendid assortment of stoves and ranges, made by the most celebrated manufacturers in the Dominion; also a full line of tinware of all descriptions, shelf hardware, cutlery, machinists' tools, and sewing machines. The business was established three years ago, and has steadily increased in extent ever since, the firm doing now not only a town but a country trade as well. They give employment to three competent assistants. Mr. Grantham, the senior member of the firm, is a native of Canada, and his partner, Mr. H. Walford, is an Englishman by birth. Both gentlemen are thoroughgoing business men, and are building steadily up an enviable trade in the community in which they are held in high regard.

36204 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
.

36214 Her grandparents settled in Hamilton when it was just a mudhole. The courthouse there was built with bricks her grandfather made. He also had a grist mill at Dundas and operated three routes by team to Goderich with supplies. One team came through the Beverly swamp on the corduroy road. She recalls that the people in the Puslinch area were very poor, often having to plant potato peelings for potato seed. The story is told of a Puslinch woman who walked to her Grandfather Walker's mill for 25c worth of flour. The mill had closed on Saturday night when she arrived. Regulations were very strict at that time and a serious fine was imposed on anyone who sold anything between closing hours Saturday and Sunday midnight. The woman pleaded to be served so that she could start the long walk back to her starving family. However, Grandfather Walker promised that he would load his wagon at midnight Sunday so that she could ride to Preston on it and be home just as quickly. When she got off the wagon at Preston she was given as much as she could carry in her arms as she walked the remainder of the way home to Puslinch.

36217 Death of Mr. John Walker.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

36233 Atribute to a local environmentalist and well-known Southwood Secondary School teacher has been taken from the rare Charitable Research Reserve, near Blair. When Tim Walker died in 2006 of a congenital heart defect, his family and friends created a permanent memorial to him at rare, where he had played as a child and helped to establish an environmental educational program as an adult. Along with donations in his name to the charitable research reserve, they established the Tim Walker Memorial Award for environmental stewardship for high schools students, planted a Bur Oak and located a park bench and plaque in a prominent location. Now, the bench, which had been painted by Walker's mother, and its plaque have been taken. "Is nothing sacred anymore?" said rare executive director Patti Leather in a statement. "There is a lot of meaning in that bench for the community. It was hand-built to honour Tim and many people have stopped to rest and admire the native trees and Tim's contribution to saving this land for us all. "We'd be happy to have it back - no questions asked. And, of course, if that doesn't happen, we'll find a way to replace and secure it." Tim C. Walker

36238 South Water Street Baptist, First Baptist, Avenue Road Baptist Churches

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

36240 WALKOWSKI, Witold

August 2, 1960 - December 15, 2017. With great sorrow we bid farewell to Witold, who died in peace while traveling in Australia. Witold lived his life with gratitude, compassion and most of all, love. He adored his wife, Urszula: he was the heart of their family and she was his rock. Love sparked during the Solidarity strikes, while both were attending Wroclaw University of Science and Technology and they were married 9 months later. Daughters, Maria, Justyna and Alexandra were his greatest source of pride. He is forever their hero. Born in Dabrowa Górnicza, Poland, to Jadwiga and Zenon Walkowski, Witold was a patriot who loved his Poland. However, his dreams of freedom and democracy brought him to Canada, to start a new life for his young family. Witold maintained a close bond with his beloved brother, Stanislaw, and his homeland, despite the distance. Among his many accomplishments in Canada, Witold established Applied Automation Canada Inc. He also worked to build a community, for Polish immigrants, through his contributions to various organizations. He will be remembered for his open heart and ability to create a sense of family, for those who needed it most. Witold is survived by his wife Urszula, their daughters; Maria (Dawid) Robczuk, Justyna Walkowski (Luka Pavlovic), Alexandra (Samuel) Snell, granddaughters Anna and Maya Robczuk, and Elizabeth Snell, and his brother Stanislaw Walkowski. He will be missed by many extended family and friends. Visitation will be held at the T.

36268 Sudden Call - Mrs. Joseph Gillespie Collapses Unexpectedly - the citizens of this community were sensibly shocked on Friday morning to learn of the sudden death of Mrs. Joseph Gillespie, Northumberland Street, which event occurred at 12:30. She had been in her usual health, so that the summons was altogether unexpected, and was attributed to heart failure. The deceased lady had reached the ripe age of 77 years. She was born in Strenraer, Wigtonshire, Scotland, and came to Ayr in her childhood, residing here ever since. Her maiden name was Marion Wallace. Early in womanhood she became the devoted wife of Joseph Gillespie, who predeceased her about 11 years. In religion she was a Presbyterian and a member of Knox United Church. Home life, household duties and the care of her family were her chief concern. A good friend and neighbor, who was esteemed by a wide acquaintance. The surviving members of the family are Joseph, Galt; Norman W., North Vancouver, and Samuel W., John W., George Murray and Mary n Ayr,. The funeral took place on Sunday, interment being made in the Ayr cemetery, with Re. J. J. Brown officiating. The pallbearers were Messrs.

36274 ROBERT WALLACE'S DEATH

The death is announced elsewhere of Mr. Robert Wallace, a former well-known and very highly respected resident of Galt, but who has been living for some years in Toronto. He was much beloved and his death will cause sorrow among a large circle of friends, both in Toronto and Galt. His death took place on Sunday morning, at 12 10 a.m., at his residence, 75 Harhord St., Toronto. The deceased who was of Scotch descent was born in 1814 and consequently was in his 79th year. He came to Canada in 1834, settling in Beverly, where he remained for two years after which he moved into Galt and immediately went into the grocery business in the stand now occupied by Mr. Jas. Trotter. In the year 1839 three years after he came to Galt he was married to Isabella, daughter of the late John Sutherland, who survives him together with two daughters and three sons, Mrs. A. G. Elmslie of Galt and Miss Wallace, Robert S. Wallace of Hamilton, Rev. W. G. Wallace of Bloor St. Presbyterian church, Toronto and Mr. A. B. Wallace of Buffalo. Of his surviving brothers and sisters, there are only one of the former Mr. George Wallace, of Toronto and two of the latter, Mrs. A. Robertson of Guelph and Mrs. A. A. Erb of Preston. He moved to Toronto and has resided there since that time. In politics Mr. Wallace was a Conservative and like most Scotchmen was a lover of curling and was the skip of a rink which a good many years ago, was called the "Colation rink" being composed of two Grits and two Conservatives. The late John Scott and the Hon. Jas. Young the Grits and the late James McMillan and the deceased the Conservatives. He was in Galt during the last curling season and a number who were present and saw him curling spoke of how well he looked considering his age. The funeral which took place here Tuesday morning on the arrival of the 9:30 C. P. R. train, was met by a large number of the deceased's old friends and relatives, the services being held in the Central Presbyterian church and the interment in Mount View Cemetery.

How The Vickerage Got its Name

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

36291 Death of Mr. A. Walper

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


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

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

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

36306 Death of Ferdinand Walter

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

St. Agatha Church

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

At Bamberg, about five miles north of St. Agatha, there were also quite a number of early Catholics, the most prominent being Mr. Ferdinand Walter, the present License Inspector.

36308 Originator of Wood Fibre Ornaments
The recent sudden death of J. Walter, president of J. Walter & Sons, Ltd., Kitchener, Ont., recalls the fact that Mr. Walter was the originator of wood fibre ornaments which his company made for furniture manufacturers to use in decorating their furniture lines. Mr. Walter was originally a sculptor receiving his art training in German and French schools, and his work may be seen in a number of churches in the United States. It was while working at this that he conceived the idea of making furniture trimmings. That was twenty years ago, and after spending much time and money in experiments perfected the present invention. The late Mr. Walter was the first man to imitate the grain of wood by casting a plaster Paris composition in rubber moulds. By improving and developing the method of casting these wood fibre ornaments the result has been that the Walter products reached very near perfection and his ornaments were in demand all over this continent; in South America, South Africa and Europe

Wambold, Abram H. (1857-1934)

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

He was married to Angeline Erb Feb. 19, 1884. To this union 9 children were born, 7 of whom survive. His wife died in 1913.

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

Breslau (Cressman) Mennonite Church

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

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

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

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

Wanner Mennonite Church
Begun: 1829

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

36415 'Unprecedented' heritage project sees century-old slate roof replaced

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

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

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

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

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

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

Victoria worked as a hairdresser, and later a dressmaker.

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

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

36426 Jas. S. Wardlaw, M.D.

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


Jubilee Souvenir of Galt, 1897

______________________________________


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

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

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

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

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

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

36427 JOHN WARDLAW

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

36428 WINE WHEY

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

PICKLED ONIONS

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

________________

SCRAPED BEEF

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

TRIPE

Wash it thoroughly, boil for five or six hours (in salted water), or until quite tender; it will keep for days and is now ready to be prepared in different ways.

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

ADAM WARNOCK


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

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

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

36462 Amelia Beers Warnock was born into a family of prominence but made her own distinct mark in Canada. Taking as her nom-de-plume Katherine Hale, her mother's given names, she was a journalist, poet, essayist, music critic, recitalist and lecturer. Her books of poetry were highly acclaimed, and her books of travel observations, historic houses and cities of Canada were well regarded and serve now as poignant views of developing Canadian identity in the first half of the 20th century. As Hale noted: "My country has never become to me a place I'm just used to, but one full of hidden surprises that I'm always wanting to explore.

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

36465 MR. JAMES WARNOCK was one of the leading business men of the town of Galt A man of large intelligence and great enterprize. A man of principle and sterling integrity. A man whose word was his bond. A strong-minded man, strong at both poles in his loves and in his aversions. He was upright, honest, honorable a man to be relied on. His life was preeminently a business life. But passing beyond that into the sacred circle of the home, where the tender, sweet, fragrant graces grow, there he was most kind, loving, sympathetic He was a devoted husband and a loving father. One who was at rest in the bosom of his family, finding there the highest earthly satisfaction. He was a true, staunch friend. He had a high esteem of my predecessor, Mr. Bentley, and his friendship for him continued to the end. He had been bred up to a respect for God's house, and a reverence for His law, and he was constant in his attendance on the Sabbath services. He thought more and felt more of religion than he expressed in words. He belonged to the old school, who were reticent and who thought these things were not for public talk, but for private and personal enjoyment.

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

" O God, our help in ages past,

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

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

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

36468 An Ontario Superior Court judge has approved the sale of 124-year-old Tiger Brand Knitting Ltd., of Cambridge, Ont., to a numbered company which will close the plant and source its branded clothing in China. The sale of Tiger Brand, which has been in bankruptcy protection since September, 2004, will throw more than 300 people out of work, says the United Steelworkers union. The company, which produces the Non-Fiction and Canadian Classic brands, as well as other clothing under contract, was founded in 1881 by the Warnock family which was in its fifth generation of ownership. The company, whose major creditor is General Motors Acceptance Corp. of Canada Ltd., was sold to a company controlled by New York investor Ken Lazar.

36480 Dead Man's Skull Was Fractured

WASELWEICZ INJURY CAUSED BY BLOW, JURY TOLD

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

36488 Log house built by David Eby in 1842 covered in clapboard it was demolished in 1981. Waterloo
 
36489 Log House constructed in 1839 by Joseph Schneider, moved to its current location.  Originally 2 storey, but due to log condition it was remade into 1 storey.  In 2011 sits on the St. Jacobs Farmers' Market site and used as a quilting store. It was originally at GCT 63 Waterloo Township Waterloo
 
36490 This large, two storey fieldstone farmhouse was built by Daniel Rudy in 1847. The builder carved his name and the date of construction on one half of a grindstone and embedded it in the second storey front wall to the right of the door. Like many early mennonite houses it is built in the plain Georgian style and faces south.
The house retains many of its early features. Some of the original small-paned twelve-over-eight windows remain. A number of other windows are six-over-six panes. It also has small attic windows as well as a bell in a cupola which was rung to call the men in from the fields. In the 1870's, a brick doddy house was added (for the parents when the son took over the farm), the porch, the two-over-two paned windowsand the board and batten summer kitchen may also have been added at this time. Colourful granite stones with large corner blocks give the house a pleasant patchwork-quilt appearance. Custom was to plaster the stone work under the front verandah.
All facades of this historical "rural" Waterloo home were recognized in the designation of the structure as a Heritage Landmark.1a

36532 Richard Roschman, Button Works, Queen Street, Waterloo - The manufacture of vegetable buttons is one that employs a large amount of capital, and gives employment to many hands. The nut from which the buttons are made is grown in South America in swampy ground. The plant creeps along the ground for about 20 feet, and then rises perpendicularly to a height of from 12 to 18 feet, with large leaves, and flowers containing a cluster of the nuts. Weighing on an average about 3 lbs to the cluster. The outer shell cracks open and allows the nuts to fall to the ground, when they are gathered by the natives and transported to the ports of shipment. Among those prominently engaged in the manufacture of vegetable buttons is Mr. Richard Roschman, whose works are located on Queen Street, Waterloo, where his premises consist of a handsome brick structure, 3 ? stories in height and 40x110 feet in dimensions; the engine and boiler house being 26x26 feet in dimensions and two stories in height, the engine being 35-horse power. The manufactory contains all the most improved machinery used in this line of manufacture, consisting of saws, borers, turning lathes, etc. Besides the plain buttons the house also manufactures covered ones. The trade, which is extensive, and which has grown up gradually and steadily, extends throughout the Provinces of Ontario, Quebec and the Lower Provinces. Mr. Roschman has been established in business since 1878, and in September last removed into his present new building, which he erected specially for the business. He gives employment to 75 skilled hands on an average throughout the year. He is a native of Germany, and by patient industry, coupled with enterprise and ability, has built up an excellent trade.1a

Ritz, recounts how a 1907 fire at the factory prompted Schierholtz & Co. to move its operations to New Hamburg.  Financial incentives offered to Schierholtz by New Hamburg also played a part in that transaction....1a

36546 Erb Street (David Eby) Mennonite Church

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

36547 St. Paul's Lutheran Church

Begun: 1852

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

194 Forsyth Dr, Waterloo
Part of Lot 22, German Company Tract



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

36556 St. Paul's Presbyterian Church

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

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

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

36584 The Wissler-Cascaden house, a two-storey red brick Georgian home was built in 1842 by John Wissler, a Waterloo Township pioneer who arrived from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in 1834. One year after his arrival Wissler established the Eagle Tannery. A shoemaking, harness making and mercantile business soon sprang up in conjunction with the tannery. This industry, including the workers homes on nearby Bridge Street, formed the nucleus of the settlement of Lexington.

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

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

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

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

36586 The McLaughlin House was built by local carpenter and Deputy Fire Chief Conrad Fenner in 1867.

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

36592 Richard Roschman, Button Works, Queen, Street, Waterloo. The manufacture of vegetable of buttons is one that employs a large amount of capital, and gives employment to many hands. The nut from which the buttons are made is grown in South America in swampy ground. The plant creeps along the ground for about 20 feet, and then rises perpendicularly to a height of from 12 to 18 feet, with large leaves, and flowers containing a cluster of the nuts, weighing on an average about 3 lbs. to the cluster. The outer shell cracks open and allows the nuts to fall to the ground, when they are gathered by the natives and transported to the ports of shipment. Among those prominently engaged in the manufacture of vegetable buttons is Mr. Richard Roschman, whose works are located on Queen [Regina] Street, Waterloo, where his premises consist of a handsome brick structure, 3 1/2 stories in height and 40x110 feet in dimensions; the engine and boiler house being 26x26 feet in dimensions and two stories in height, the engine being 35-horse power. The manufactory contains all the most improved machinery used in this line of manufacture, consisting of saws, borers, turning lathes, etc. Besides the plain buttons the house also manufactures covered once. The trade which is extensive, and which as grown up gradually and steadily, extends throughout the Provinces of Ontario, Quebec and the Lower Provinces. Mr. Roschman has been established in business since 1878, and in September last year removed into his present new building, which he erected specially for the business. He gives employment to 75 skilled hands on an average throughout the year. He is a native of Germany, and by patient industry, coupled with enterprise and ability, has built up an excellent trade.1a

36595 Silver Spring Mill, Thos. Roesch, Waterloo - As a manufacturing centre, Waterloo holds a prominent place in this section of Ontario. Among the various industries that of milling holds a prominent position. Holding a leading place in this line is Mr. Thomas Roesch, proprietor of the Silver Spring Mill, which has been established since 1878, and since the inception of the business it has been greatly developed, the trade now extending throughout the Lower Provinces. The premises occupied are 40x54 feet in dimensions and four stories in height, where employment is furnished to four skilful millers under the practical supervision of Mr. Thomas Roesch.

He is a native of Germany, and has resided in this country for the past 32 years. He is a thorough-going, active and enterprising business man, who, by his own unaided efforts, has built up a trade of which he may well feel proud.1a

36596 This large, two storey fieldstone farmhouse was built by Daniel Rudy in 1847. The builder carved his name and the date of construction on one half of a grindstone and embedded it in the second storey front wall to the right of the door. Like many early mennonite houses it is built in the plain Georgian style and faces south.
The house retains many of its early features. Some of the original small-paned twelve-over-eight windows remain. A number of other windows are six-over-six panes. It also has small attic windows as well as a bell in a cupola which was rung to call the men in from the fields. In the 1870's, a brick doddy house was added (for the parents when the son took over the farm), the porch, the two-over-two paned windowsand the board and batten summer kitchen may also have been added at this time. Colourful granite stones with large corner blocks give the house a pleasant patchwork-quilt appearance. Custom was to plaster the stone work under the front verandah.
All facades of this historical "rural" Waterloo home were recognized in the designation of the structure as a Heritage Landmark.1a

36597 St. Paul's Presbyterian Church

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

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

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

36598 Union Mills, William Snider & Co. - The milling industry is well represented in Waterloo. Situated as the town is, in the midst of an important wheat-growing country, this is to be expected. Among those prominently identified in this line is the firm of William Snider & Co., proprietors of the Union Mills. This business was established in 1879, succeeding Mr. Elias Snider, who had previously conducted it for five years. The premises occupied as the mill are 46x136 feet in dimensions and five stories in height, containing 26 pairs of rolls and all the latest and most improved mill machinery and appliances, the engine being of 100-horse power. The product of this mill is of the most superior quality, and has a ready sale in the markets of the Dominion, besides which the firm do an extensive export business. They give employment to 15 skilled and careful hands, who are under their immediate supervision. The leading brands of flour manufactured by this concern are the "Ocean," "Agate," "Zola" and "Waterloo," which are well known and popular brands. The trade of the house during the present season is the largest they have had for years. Both members of the firm are natives of Canada, and the senior member of the firm, Mr. Snider, is a public-spirited gentleman, and was in the Council for seven years, Reeve for three years, Warden of the county one year, and Mayor of the town for two years. Both gentlemen are active and progressive business men, and have succeeded in building up an extensive and lucrative trade, of which they are eminently deserving.1a

36599 Waterloo Foundry, Bricker & Co., King Street, Waterloo - Was established by Mr. Jacob Bricker, father of the present senior member of the firm. It was started in a comparatively small way, and it required untiring exertions and a lively spirit of enterprise to build it up to important proportions; but those qualities were not wanting, as the result achieved testified. The business is now conducted by Messrs. Levi Bricker and E.W.B. Snider, under the firm title of Bricker & Co. The 38 years that have passed since the founding of the business have seen many extensions in the buildings to accommodate the increasing trade, until to-day their extent is as follows: Main building, 45x100 feet in dimensions and two stories in height; moulding shop and engine room, 50x80 feet, one story; blacksmiths' shop, 30x40 feet, one story; paint shop, 30x50 feet, one story frame; and implement shed, 34x100 feet, one story frame. In these employment is furnished to 40 skilled and competent workmen. The firm manufactures a general line of agricultural implements, including reapers, mowers, binders, threshers and hay binders, besides general job work and repairing. The work turned out at this foundry is of the very best description, superior in quality and perfect in finish, which has been the main cause in building up and retaining their extensive trade. The annual output of the concern is over $40,000. Both members of the firm are natives of Canada; Mr. Bricker, the senior member, being the practical man and supervising the work, while Mr. Snider attends to the financial and business affairs, the latter gentleman being a representative of the North Riding of Waterloo in the Local House. The industry they conduct is alike creditable to themselves and the town of Waterloo.1a

36601 WATERLOO MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE CO., C.M. Taylor, Manager, Waterloo -

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

36616 The Theobald Spetz Site Historical Overview

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

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

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

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

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

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

Archaeological Fieldwork

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

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

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

36621 Township loses a community advocate
Elmira lawyer Bob Waters was former mayor and supporter of many local causes

by Steve Kannon

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

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

(From our own Correspondent)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We regret to state that Mr James Watson, son of J. Watson, Esq. who is now at College in Ithaca, N.Y. is lying very ill of Typhoid Fever. A telegram brought the sad news on Monday last when Mr. and Mrs. Watson immediately started for the other side. since then telegrams have been received regularly and we are glad to learn that the young man, though still somewhat low, is doing as well as can be expected.

_________________________

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

Mrs. Chisholm was a member of Knox United Church and led a quiet life. Her kindly and genial disposition .won her many friends, all of whom will regret her passing. Besides one daughter, Mrs. Andrew Stockton, and two granddaughters, she is survived by one brother, Wm. A. Watson, Vancouver, B.C.

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


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

36673 Postmaster Watson Passes Death Came Without Warning to J. W. Watson, While at Work Saturday Afternoon

The citizens of the village and community were shocked on Saturday afternoon to learn of the sudden death, about 3o'clock, of Ayr's postmaster, John William Watson. Mr. Watson had been feeling unwell after the dinner hour, and mentioned to several persons that he was suffering from pain in the region of the heart. He later went to consult his doctor and then returned to the post office. A short time afterward, while working at his desk, he suddenly collapsed. Medical aid was summoned by his assistant, Miss Jean Keith, who was working in the office, but to no avail.

Mr., Watson, known to many of his friends as "Trip", was born in Ayr 73 years ago, being the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John George Watson. He was the last member of his family, and unmarried.

Appointed Postmaster in 1918

He was appointed Postmaster of Ayr in 1918, upon the death of his father, John George Watson, who held the position for many years previously. Mr., Watson made an ideal postmaster and the Ayr office was considered one of the most efficient in this Postal District.

Receiving his early education here, he attended Woodstock College and Toronto University. He worked for a number of years with the Dominion Bridge Company, Winnipeg. After returning to Ayr, he was employed on the office staff of the John Watson Mfg. Co. before going to the post office.

A Lover of Sports.

Mr. Watson was a lover of sports and in his early days was a lacrosse and football player of note. He was also an enthusiastic bowler and keen curler. For many years he was secretary-treasurer of the Ayr Union Curling Club and also held the office of president for the customary term.

In the old days, when the village was served by a first-class band, he played one of bass instruments. He was also an excellent piano player.

Was Widely Known.

The people of the community will miss Mr. Watson. He was known to many persons throughout the province, by whom he was highly esteemed for his kindly personality and helpful disposition. In particular, the people of the business section will miss his familiar figure. They will miss his cheery greeting and quiet jokes. His place in the community will be hard to fill. It was fitting that he should be called to the Great Beyond while on duty in the office where he had served the public so faithfully.

The Funeral.

The funeral took place on Monday afternoon from the residence of his aunt, Miss M. U. Watson, and, as a mark of respect, the business places of the village were closed from 2 o'clock to 3.30 o'clock. The services were conducted by Rev. J. W. Currie, who paid fitting tribute to the many fine qualities of the late Mr. Watson. There was a large attendance and numerous expressions of sympathy were heard. The pallbearers were: Morton Guthrie, Wm. G. Hall, A. Wyllie Watson., J. T. Gillies, James H. Lovett, Toronto, and C. C. Hill, Welland

Mary Margaret Watson
 
36677 A woman of whom the residents of Ayr have every reason to be proud was Mary Watson. In 1903, she became the first principal of the Macdonald Institute of Domestic Science and Art, a part of the Guelph Agricultural College.

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

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

As part of her community service, in the Second World War she had charge of the knitting of socks, sweaters and other articles for the Ayr Women's Institute. She died in 1950.

Mary Urie Watson 1866-1950

Principal, Macdonald Institute, 1904-1920

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

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

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

Watson played a leading role in the early years of the American Home Economics Association, serving as the third Vice-Presidential, and was the only female member of the Canadian Food Board during World War One. Above all, she was known for her devotion to the Institute's students. She developed a close relationship with them that continued long after their graduation. Watson undertook the task of organizing the Institute's first reunion in 1920.

Passing of Miss Mary Urie Watson

The last member of the family of the late John Watson, who established the John Watson Mfg. Co. Limited in Ayr over 100 years ago, passed away at her home on Wednesday, Sept. 13th, in the person of Miss Mary Urie Watson, in her 85th year. Her mother, the former Elizabeth Dolman, was a member of one of the prominent Ayr families of pioneer days. Miss Watson had been ill for several months.

She was the first principal of MacDonald Institute, Ontario Agricultural College, Guelph, going there in 1903 when the Institute was opened. She remained as principal until 1920, when she retired to live in Ayr.

Miss Watson was a graduate of Philadelphia College of Domestic Science, and Teacher's College, Columbia University, New York City.

Her interest in home economics dated from the time she was engaged by Mrs. Adelaide Hoodless to teach what was then termed domestic science to classes in the Hamilton Y.W.C.A. in 1897. These classes were also attended by pupils from the public schools of Hamilton so that Miss Watson was the first teacher of the first domestic science classes in Canadian schools.

Joining the staff of the Ontario Normal School of Domestic Science and Art, Hamilton, in 1900 under Miss Hope of Boston, Miss Watson was promoted to be head of the school on Miss Hope's retirement the following year.

In all this pioneer educational work in the Province of Ontario, Miss Watson was closely associated with Mrs. Adelaide Hoodless, Hamilton. As an instance of this, Miss Watson was the first speaker at the first regular meeting of the Stoney Creek Women's Institute, which had just been organized by Mrs. Hoodless.

Under Miss Watson's guidance, MacDonald Institute grew from a tech-training school (which was the prime necessity at the time) to include courses for institutional housekeepers, dieticians, and short courses for rural women. Some years later, the two-year course was recognized by the University of Toronto for credit on a degree course.

With her passing, a page of history has been turned. Miss Watson's pupils and graduates respected and loved her. To her labours in the early days of MacDonald Institute is due in no small measure the prestige which that institution enjoys.

During the first world war, Miss Watson was the only woman appointed to the Canadian Food Board. In July of this year, she was made honourary member of the Canadian Home Economics Association and the Canadian Dietetic Association.

In world war two, Miss Watson was in charge of the knitting activities of the women of Ayr and community.

She is survived by two nieces: Mrs. James H. Lovett, Toronto and Mrs. William Gerard, Georgetown, California; and two nephews, A. Wyllie Watson, Ayr and John Bryant, Sacramento, California.

The Funeral

The funeral, which took place on Saturday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock to the Ayr Cemetery, was largely attended. The services were in charge of Rev. W. D. Goodger, pastor of Knox United Church, and the pallbearers were: Charles Inglis, Toronto; J. C. Swan, Ayr; Prof. Shutt, Guelph; John Henderson, Ayr; Dr. Albert J. Hobbie, Lewiston, N.Y.; and Lachlan Arthur, Hamilton.

Among those attending the funeral were: Dr. Margaret McCready, Principal of MacDonald Institute, Guelph; Prof. Bell of Guelph, who represented the various alumni associated with MacDonald Institute and the O.A.C.; also many former students and friends from Toronto, Hamilton, Guelph, Galt and Paris.

36684 William Watson Found Dead In the Barn This Morning

AWFUL SIGHT MEETS HIS BROTHER

Hung Suspended by the Neck from a Beam - Deceased Suffering from Mental Abberation - A Highly Respected Young Man - Cut Off in His Prime, Aged 22

A fearful sight was that which met the eyes of James Watson, Mill Creek, when he entered the barn about six o'clock this morning. There from the topmost beam hung the body of his brother, William. He was terrified by the spectacle, he gave one glance at the suspended form and with all his speed, notified John Bain McKenzie of what he had seen. The neighbors soon arrived and the unfortunate young man was taken down. He was dead. The instrument which had produced death was a chain. The circumstances were only too apparent. Watson had taken his own life. Coroner Radford was sent for. When he reached the scene of the tragedy, the body was no longer suspended in the air. An examination showed that the neck was not broken. the dead man's end being caused by strangulation. The chain was so tight that it caught low on the neck. The windpipe was injured, but, the neck itself was intact. After hearing all that could be told, the coroner did not deem an inquest necessary. The details, as far as can be learned are as follows, Watson got up this morning shortly after five o'clock. Immediately after dressing, he went out to the barn, presumably to attend to the chores. His brother James had his breakfast and then followed. The awful discovery that he made has already been described. What induced the deceased to take this terrible step can only be surmised. It is thought that he was suffering from a temporary mental affection. His actions of the last few days would strengthen that opinion. His mother states that he was in very low spirits on Sunday and yesterday. He did not give the slightest indication that he meditated such an act, as he was afterwards guilty of, and his condition does not appear to have given his friends much anxiety. Some time prior to his demise, he had complained of severe pains in his head. These he attributed to rush of blood to the head, but they were no doubt due to the malady which ultimately deprived him of life. He was well known in town and was frequently seen here. Only yesterday he was in Galt and as far as looks were concerned, did not seem to be unwell. He was the very picture of health, being of stout and robust build. His face was of a ruddy hue and these signs of health were enough to attract attention to him. Personally he was an agreeable young fellow. Those who knew him thought a great deal of him and his friends have the conviction that when he cut the strands than bound him to this life, he was not in his right mind. The family so severely afflicted comprises of James and the sister, the mother, Mrs. James Watson, at home; John, Fergus; Mrs. Hooker, Ayr and Ellen, in Buffalo. The boys worked the farm and industrious and energetic young men everyone found them to be. The blow that has befallen them is one that few are called upon to bear and they will have the heartfelt sympathy of the community in their sorrow. Death, in whatever form it may come, is accompanied by suffering, but it is immeasurably more painful in such an instance as this. The loved ones of him who is gone should remember, however, the state he was in when he anticipated the decree of his maker, a fact that goes far towards assuaging their grief. The mother, Mrs. James Watson, has been a widow for three years. Misfortune has indeed been hers, the death of her husband being followed in such a comparatively short period by the regrettable fate of her son. The funeral will take place from his mother's residence, Mill Creek, at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon, to Mount View Cemetery.

36685 WATSON (Galt, Ont.) May 4 - William Watson, a farmer, aged 22, living on the Clyde road, about two miles from here, committed suicide this morning by hanging. For a year past the deceased has suffered intense pain in the head, which almost drove him crazy, and there is no doubt that the rash act was committed while suffering. He was a most exemplary young man and unmarried, living with his widowed mother, whose farm he managed.

36706 Passing of Annie Waybrant - Another native of Ayr passed away when Miss Annie Waybrant departed this life on Monday evening, the 4th inst. For the past 36 years Miss Waybrant has been a constant sufferer, but by her cheerful, unselfish, christian character had endeared herself to a host of friends. While Miss Waybrant had been denied the privilege of active church work, she was always interested in the school, social and religious life of the community. Deceased was born in Ayr and, from the time she was a very small girl, had made her home with Mr. and Mrs. Henry Elliott, living in Greenfield until Mr. Elliott retired to Ayr a year ago. By her bright, thoughtful and courageous disposition she had repaid Mr. and Mrs. Ellioit for the many years that she was one of their home and the sympathy of the community goes out to Mr. and Mrs. Elliott in their bereavement.

During the time of The Ontario Temperance Act, Mr. George D. Forbes bought the hotel and refurnished it and Henry Sachs managed it.

After Mr. Forbes died, George Thorlby rented the hotel and then it was sold to James Sutherland Cornell, by him to Joseph Krempowich who in turn sold to Samuel Sturman, the present owner.

JOSEPH "JOSH" WAYPER
1858-1915


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

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

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

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

A Verdict Secured Against Hespeler Hotel Men

Must Pay a Widow Whose Husband Was Drowned

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

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

DRUNK WHEN DROWNED

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mr. Josh Wayper Preparing for Erection of Big Resort


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

Death of an Old Citizen

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

Not Dead.

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

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

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

Back to 1807 and 20-year-old Abraham Weber. He built his farmstead in the centre of his lot, close to 2017's King and Victoria. All vestiges of Weber's buildings have disappeared but one incidental structure lingers. At some point, Abraham gave refuge and work to an ex-slave named Levi Carroll. Levi and his family are among the earliest identifiable blacks in the German Company Tract. They appear in a later, well-known photograph from the 1880s featuring their home, the original 1820 Waterloo schoolhouse. It was then located on Lot 16 near the collegiate but is now in Waterloo Park.

Abraham left the farm in the late 1830s when son Abraham C. took over. Then, in 1855, the Grand Trunk Railway route split Lot 16 in two, so Abraham C. sold most of his land to George Grange who had the property surveyed and began selling industrial and residential lots.

On October 23rd, 1838, he was married to Judith, youngest daughter of Peter and Anna (Zimmerman) Martin. She was born January 2nd, 1821, and died March 12th, 1884. After their marriage he moved on his father's farm, being composed of part of lot No. 15, German Company's Tract. Here they resided until the Grand Trunk Railway was built in 1855, when they sold their large farm and purchased that of Benjamin Shantz and Stafford's farms at Freeport. Here they resided until his death which took place July 6th, 1874. She resided until his death which took place July 6th, 1874. She resided with her son, Moses, on the west side of the Grand River, near Chicopee, where she died. He was ordained as minister of the Gospel for the Mennonite denomination, December 22nd, 1850. He preached regularly and attended frequently at funerals. His time was largely occupied in visiting the sick and giving words of consolation to such who were seeking their spiritual welfare, and his life was a busy one. So much of his time was devoted to his pastoral duties that he was almost unable to attend to his private affairs. Although sacrificing much of his time in the service of the church of his choice, he would not receive any compensation for the time devoted in behalf of the church, but looked for his reward beyond the present life where the faithful labors in His vineyard shall be spiritually rewarded for all ages of eternity. They had a numerous family, being composed of sixteen children"

First Mennonite Church

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

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

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

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

Of interest: when the new church was built in 1902, the 1834 frame church was bought by D.B. Betzner who moved it to Cedar Street where it became a woodenware business and then a furniture factory. It was destroyed by fire in 1937.

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

She leaves a sorrowing husband, three step-children (Florence, Orrie and Howard), two brothers, and two sisters. Sister Bauman was in bed seven weeks, suffering from inflammatory rheumatism. She was recovering nicely and was looking forward to again being about her household duties, when without a moment's warning she passed away because of a weak heart. Her death was a shock to the community, nevertheless we mourn not as those who have no hope. She was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church till death. The Floradale congregation, of which she was a member, will miss her greatly. Bro. Bauman and family need our sympathy and prayers. Funeral services were conducted on Mar. 9, at the Elmira Mennonite Church and her body was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery. Bros. Abram Gingerich and Oliver Snider preached. Texts, Luke 13:4; Isa. 3:10.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Detwiler.-Nancy Weber was born near Breslau, Ont., March 10, 1853; died at the home of her son, Norman, near Breslau, March 4, 1939; aged 85 y. 11 m. 25 d. In 1878 she was united in marriage to Noah Detwiler, who predeceased her July 14, 1920. This was the first marriage ceremony performed by the late Bishop Elias Weber. To this union were born 3 sons and 3 daughters. One son predeceased the parents in his infancy. There remain to mourn the departure of a faithful Christian mother, 2 sons (Isaiah and Norman of Breslau), 3 daughters (Abbie of Breslau, Mrs. Ephraim Kinzie of Preston, and Mrs. Titus Shantz of Kitchener), 19 grandchildren, and many relatives and friends. When 18 years of age she accepted Christ as her Saviour, united with the Cressman Mennonite Church, and remained a faithful member until the Lord called her home. She always had a bright testimony of peace with God, appreciated in a very grateful and humble manner her salvation experience, and lived an exemplary life. She will be missed as a true Christian mother, a helpful neighbor, and a living witness to the grace of God. Funeral services were conducted on March 8 in the Cressman Mennonite Church at Breslau by Brethren Jonas Snider and Oscar Burkholder. Texts, Job 14:14; Psa. 71:20,21.

36833 C. N. Weber is a complex organization, but it started simply enough as hardware store founded by Samuel Date in 1855. He sold tools and supplies needed by carpenters, metal smiths and carriage makers in the community of Berlin, which later became Kitchener.
Date sold the store to John Fennell, a prominent community leader who died in 1922. In 1923, C.N. Weber bought the store from Fennell's widow. Over time, the business shifted from retail sales to industrial supply.

Christian Weber
 
36849 Christian Weber," son of Christian and Catherine (Bruck) Weber, was born in the village of Dietrichhingen, district of Zweibruecken, Rhein Bayren, Germany, March 4th, 1810. When in his nineteenth year he bid adieu to his fatherland and emigrated to America. After arriving at New York in safety he was obliged to work for some time in order to raise sufficient means to defray his expenses across the ocean. In a few years he had, by diligent labor, saved so much from his earnings that he was able to pay the expenses of bringing his parents and others of the family to this country. Some time during the year 1833 or 1834 he, together with his parents and others, moved to Canada and settled near Wilmot Centre, Waterloo County, Ontario, where Mr Weber was married to Elizabeth Schmaus who was born June 29th, 1818, and died June 3rd, 1886. Here they resided about twenty years, then he disposed of his farm and purchased that of Moses Weaver a little east of Heidelberg where they resided until their deaths. He died March 22nd, 1886. Mr. Weber was a man of noble character, industrious and economical. Modesty, coolness and deliberation were some of his characteristics. His descendants are not so much distinguished for being great men as for the uniform private worth of all of them, not intending to convey the idea that they are less able or competent to fill public positions than others but that a certain feature of character impells them always to attend to their own business first. None of them are and never have been ambitious for public citizenship. Mr. and Mrs. Weber were blessed with a family of eight children"
