36002 Jacob Uffelman was born in Waterloo in 1860. At age 15 he apprenticed himself for four years to Theodore Bellinger who operated the Corner Store. Upon completion of his apprenticeship, Uffelman was employed with John Shuh and Company for five years. He left this company to go into business for himself in Breslau where he ran a general store for three years before selling out and moving to Elmira where he remained for four years.

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

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

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

36007 The revolution in Baden broke ou't actively in the latter part of 1848, and continued until toward the end of 1849. One of the main leaders was Carl Hecker, supported by Strube and Brentano, members of the diet. The Grand-duke Leopold fled to Prussia and secured the help of Prince William, grand-father of the present Kaiser, who at the head of a Prussian force invaded Baden in 1849, and defeated the insurgents. It may be interest ing to state here that with the Prussians were Hesse and Nassau soldiers, among whom were John Ulner, who lived here and worked for me in Wellesley for almost half a century and the late Christian Meisner of Kitchener. Hecker, after one of his sharp shooters had killed the Prussian general, during a parley, escaped to Switzerland and from there emigrated to Illinois where he died some years ago. I drilled on the side of the republicans under Hecker in 1849, but was not in any of the engagements.1a

36008 Don Cale Retires
Drug store's 54-year history comes to end

by Shirley Crane

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

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

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

Excerpts printed with permission from the author
.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

36010 CLOSE OF AN ACTIVE CAREER
DR. H. ULLYOT, OF ELMIRA WAS ONE OF WATERLOO COUNTY'S OLDEST PRACTICIONERS - FUNERAL TOOK PLACE TO-DAY.

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

36013 Revolting Case - To the Editor of the Hamburg Volksblatt

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

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

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

36024 Obituary of Former New Hamburg Resident

The following obituary was received by Mrs. John Kaercher, relating the death of her brother in Corpus Christi, Texas. Some time ago:

"M. Menger, the city superintendent of the city schools, died Thursday afternoon at the Spohn sanitarium after a six weeks illness.

Mr. Menger, who had taught in the Corpus Christi city schools twenty-nine schools, was born in New Hamburg, Canada. He was a graduate of the Toronto University. He left Canada at the age of 20 years and after a short time spent in New York he came to Texas and located at Austin, teaching for a while in Bickler academy and later at Flatonia and Halletsville after which he came to Corpus Christi, where he taught as principal of the high school. He succeeded W. D. Notley as superintendent on January of this year.

Mr. Menger was first married to Miss Nancy Overton of Halletsville, who died in 1900. His second wife was Mrs. Cora L. Allen of Hartford, Connecticut. She died in 1916. Two sons of the first marriage, Overton and Garnett, survive. The former is in Liverpool with merchant marine and the latter resides in Corpus Christi.

As an instructor and as a man Mr. Menger was loved and admired by his pupils as few ever are. In the senior class it is said there are several pupils whose fathers and mothers were educated by him and several of the present members of the school board received their education under his guidance and direction.

It is also said that Mr. Menger established the first physical culture and chemical laboratory used in the Corpus Christi high school. He was recognized as one of the best mathematicians in the State of Texas and he built up that department of the high school to where it was second to none in the State.

The following tribute, taken from one of the annuals of the high school dedicated to him, shows the esteem in which he was held by his pupils "To the one who always stands firmly for what is right, true and good and who is ever an example of noble manhood: to our beloved Mr. Menger.

The citizenship in general will mourn the passing of this worthy man whose life work was so unselfishly given to the training of the young men and young women of this city and section.

Mr. Menger was a member of the Woodmen of the World, Woodmen Circle, Praetorians and Ancient Order of United Workmen.

36034 Forced to fight, he died on the war's final day By Jeff Outhit

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

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

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

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

Hallman Meeting House

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

Roseville United Brethren in Christ Church

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

Dies in Church

The fourth sudden Death in Berlin since New Year's

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

INJURIES CAUSED BY AUTO FATAL TO 88 YEAR OLD MAN

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

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

36104 SAD ACCIDENT AT GALT

A Pleasure Steamboat Goes Over The Mill Dam -- 8 Drowned

May 23, Galt. --The little steamer EMPRESS OF INDIA, which had been placed on the Grand River, and which on Monday last commenced its trips for the season on Blain's Dam, to all appearance was perfectly safe for the business required of it, and the calamity which has overtaken it was totally unlooked for.

Last evening about eight o'clock a party of some fifteen young men and two young women embarked on the vessel for a sail up the river. As the boat was crossing the dam something appeared to go wrong with the rudder, and the head of the boat could not be turned sufficiently up the stream to enable it to counteract the effects of the current caused by the flow over the dam. The west side of the dam was reached without mishap, however, but the point where the boat would have touched being rough and rocky, an order was given to reverse the engine, which was done. The boat again getting out into the stream, an effort was made to turn the bow up the stream but again it seemed as if the rudder would not work, and when at last it did, it unfortunately was turned the wrong way, and the boat headed directly for the fall, and before those on board could realize their position the steamer drifted broadside to the fall, and in a moment went crashing over into the boiling water beneath. Before it took it's final leap, however, two of it's occupants, John and William Ovens, jumped into the water, and the latter, in an almost miraculous manner, managed to obtain a foothold on the very edge and to resist the current until he reached the shore. His brother John was not so fortunate, being carried over the faIl, but he was eventually taken out of the river some distance below in an insensible condition.

Of those who went over with the boat, eight were lost, the rest having in various ways managed to reach shore. Both of the young women were saved, one, Miss Landreth, having had an escape that was perfectly miraculous, she floated down the stream until she struck the western pier of the upper bridge, against which the water pressed her so tightly that parties were enabled to get ropes and rescue her.

The following is a complete list of the drowned: -

Jas. Montgomery (engineer and owner), Edward Wren, Andrew Jackson; John Fraser; Frederick Cane; H. J. Jaffray (of the Galt reporter); Thomas Elliott and David Scott. The body of Mr. H. J. Jaffray was taken out of the water within a short time of the accident, but the most unremitting exertions on the part of the medical men present failed to restore life. It is the general impression, that when the boat went over the fall he must have been struck and stunned.

Efforts to recovers of the bodies were made during the night but without success. This morning the boat was turned over where she lay below the falls, t being supposed that some of the bodies must be entangled in the wreck, but none were discovered. The dam is about ten or twelve feet high, with about a foot of water flowing over the fall. The depth of water above the fall is from fifteen to eighteen feet.

36116 Among the most prominent settlers who came here about 1832 were Adam Ferrie, Jr., and Samuel Liebschuetz; the former a Scotchman and youngest son of the Hon. Adam Ferrie, of Montreal, then head of a large wholesale house; the latter was a shrewd German Jew. Both started a store here and both did a thriving business. Mr. Adam Ferrie, Junior, commenced in the dwelling house of Jacob Roos, cooper, but soon built a new store and a large warehouse, at present owned by our worthy ex-Reeve Mr. William Schlueter, who converted the warehouse into that well known establishment called "Business Corner," Mr. Liebschuetz erected the store now owned and occupied by Mr. Uttick the tobacconist. Mr. Liebschuetz's business increasing rapidly, he built another store combined with a tavern; but not finding sufficient room in Preston for his energies and ambition, he traded his property in Preston against a mill property, now known as German Mills, but for many years known as Jewsburg, so named after its founder who was a Jew. This was the first grist-mill that was bought and enlarged with money earned in Preston. Liebschuetz by reason of some criminal act, as was supposed, fled the country and never returned.

36123 After a lingering and painful battle with rheumatism in its worst form, Mr. James Uttley, son of Mr. Johnathan [sp] Uttley, passed over to the great majority last Tuesday at noon. Having been a sufferer for years, many of the pleasures participated in by young people of his age, were denied him. Entertaining very little hope of recovery, he, nevertheless, kept himself up remarkably well; bore his cross in patience and endeavored to make himself useful. His familiar countenance will be missed by his many sympathizing friends. He had reached the age of 31 years.

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

36124 An Elmira Business Man's Death

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

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

36125 Jonathan was a great uncle of mine, a younger brother of my grandfather Abraham Uttley. He worked at Seagram's Distillery, never married and was a 'simple' man. I remember him being brought to my grandfather's house for family gatherings in the 1950s and I was told that he was brought from The Old Folks Home on Frederick Street (i.e. the House of Refuge). When he died in 1962 he was living at the new Sunnyside Home at 247 Franklin Avenue, the replacement for the Frederick Street building.

36129 WATERLOO NEWS NOTES

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

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

36130 SAMUEL UTTLEY HAS CROSSED THE DIVIDE

CALL CAME MONDAY AT DAY-BREAK

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

____________________

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

36136 Death of Mrs. Robt. Cranston, of North Dumfries

An old and highly respected resident, has been called away, in the person of Mrs. Robert Cranston, sr., of North Dumfrles. Mrs. Cranston, whose maiden name was Jessie Vair, was born some fifty-four years ago, in Roseburghshire, Scotland. When twenty-six years of age, Mrs. Cranston, left the home of her birth and the land of her forefathers and came to Canada. Sometime after her arrival in this country, she was married to Mr. Robert Cranston, her surviving husband and with him took up her residence on a farm in Dumfries, where she has continued to reside, until her death, beloved and honored by all. Her demise, which occurred on Sunday morning, March 10th, at 2 o'clock, cut short a life devoted to the interests and welfare of her fellow beings and whose highest aim was the advancement of the church of God. For some time prior to her death, deceased was afflicted with cancer in the stomach, from which she could get no permanent relief and which was the ultimate cause of her demise. Mrs. Cranston was an earnest and consistent member of the Central Presbyterian church, of which her bereaved husband is an elder and where the bad news of her death will be received with sincere and heartfelt expressions of sorrow. One brother and two sisters of Mrs. Cranston survive her, one brother and a sister, in the old home of Scotland and a sister Mrs. Nesbitt, who resides in town.

Memorial to young boy to be erected in Kitchener
November 23, 2009
By Liz Monteiro, Record staff

KITCHENER \emdash Monday will mark 25 years that Doris Hynes's five-year-old son was hit by a transport truck.

The boy died three days later in hospital of massive head injuries.

To commemorate the anniversary of Steven Vale's death, a memorial will be erected in the area where he was hit which is now a green space near a small park at the end of Gordon Avenue at Lancaster and Mansion Streets in Kitchener.

"It's a big milestone," said Hynes, through tears, recalling her eldest boy at the time.

Vale was walking home from Suddaby Public School where he was in kindergarten when at the corner of Gordon Avenue and Mansion Street he was hit by a transport truck.

The truck driver was turning right from Gordon onto Mansion. At the time, Gordon Avenue went to Mansion. It was closed after Vale's death and is now a cul-de-sac.

Hynes said the truck driver took off and she was told about the hit-and-run when one of the two boys that were walking with Vale came to Hynes's Luella Street house and told her that her son was lying dead on the street.

The truck driver was never charged.

Hynes, 51, who now has two adult children, 21 and 25, recalls how the years after Vale's death were difficult.

"If I didn't have a seven-month-old at home to take care of, I would be in the nut house," said Hynes, who later moved from the Kitchener neighbourhood to a farm house in Bloomingdale.

Hynes said with time she has accepted Vale's death. But there are moments of deep sadness especially when she sees small children walking to school, when she drives by the intersection, and speaks to friends or family members who are now 30 and would be the same age as Vale.

Hynes said she decided she wanted to mark her son's death and contacted the city's parks and recreation department about erecting a memorial in the green space. The city agreed and the memorial will be installed on Nov. 28.

The memorial, in an area of about eight feet by eight feet, will be made of armour stone and will be in the shape of the letter V. A small plaque with Vale's name will be placed on the stone.

Hynes choose a V because of the v's in her son's first and last name.

Hynes is paying for the cost of the stone and hopes to fundraise some money by organizing a dance at the Army Navy Air Force Veterans club on Gage Street in Kitchener on Nov. 28 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by calling Hynes at 519-585-0188 or at the door.

At the dance, Hynes will have a scrapbook and photo album of Vale's life that she put together over two years.

"It was like therapy," she said.

In October of that year, they were involved in a battle with the French frigate Uranie, he was wounded and taken prisoner and spent two years in a French prison. He was freed in 1795 and promoted to Lieutenant Commander in 1804. He married Agnes Ann Valentine youngest daughter of David Valentine and Mary Smith in 1809 at St. Pancras Old Church, London. Witness to the marriage was John Henderson Valentine, brother of Agnes Ann who was a banker in London. I don't have the date when he was promoted to Captain but it was before 1819 when he signed himself "Captain David Valentine", he was at that time in Montrose and apparently not well. He died May 2, 1820.

36145 Flash from the Past: Bridgeport Lofts site was a shoe factory

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

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

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

36169 In 1882 Edward Roos bought the lot which Charlton and Hurst now own and on the front portion now torn down, built a barn with dwelling above which his family occupied for years; and in rear of this barn he built a stable to hold about twenty horses. In addition to the driving horses kept for hire, Mr. Roos kept a cab which he turned out at weddings, etc. behind a fine well-dressed, well-groomed pair of horses driven by a man equipped always with a silk hat. He had a carryall for summer use, which the ball team hired to make their out-of-town trips, picnic parties hired to go to the lake, etc. and for winter he had his pleasure sleigh which accommodated a goodly number out for a sleigh ride.

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

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

_______________

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

36190 Mrs. O.T. Ball Passes In Her 102nd Year

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Funeral

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

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

36193 DR. WILLIAM H. VARDON

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

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

36194 A Blacksmithshop and Tavern

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

36199 Woman killed in targeted incident in Kitchener

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

Police are identifying the woman as Melinda Vasilije from Kitchener.

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

36217 MRS. JOHN McNAB, JR. Her maiden name was Jane Veitch. She was a bright, cheerful, happy Christian, evidently living in the light, and finding all her world in the home where God had placed her, and in living for the good of her husband and their children. She was a loving wife and a devoted mother. She had great affection for her children, and it was out of this that the great sorrow of her life came. She had a sick son, whose health never improved, and, as the sick one is the centre of the home, attracting all the attention and sympathy, and calling for all the care, he became an absorbing object of interest and concern, and when, in the providence of God, he was called away, her sense of loss was so great that she was deeply oppressed by it, and seldom did the weight lift till she went in to the haven of rest When we visited her a whole-hearted welcome always awaited us, and a real kindness ministered to our necessities ; and when we sat down to read the Word and talk of it, she was an attentive and delighted listener.

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

36226 Esteemed Citizen Dies in 79th Year

Walter Veitch Lived in Winterbourne 56 Years.


Death claimed one of Winterbourne's outstanding citizens on Friday evening last, in the person of Mr. Walter Veitch at the age of 78. He had been in ill health for some two years following a slight stroke, a more pronounced one being the cause of death. Mr. Veitch was born December 6, 1856 near Roseville, North Dumfries, the son of the late Mr. James Veitch and Mary Ann Hastee Veitch, both natives of Scotland and was the seventh of a family of thirteen children, the only surviving one being Mr. Robert Veitch of Roseville. Mr. Walter Veitch moved to Winterbourne in 1879 and settled on Riverside farm. He married Miss Mary Duncan of Winterbourne in 1882. Of this union eight children were born. Mr. Veitch was always keenly interested in church and community work and in politics was a staunch Liberal. The funeral was held on Tuesday from the old Homestead, "Riverside". A large throng of friends and relatives assembled to pay their last respects. The service was conducted by Rev. Mr. Stewart of Elmira and Rev. A. M. Hamilton of Guelph, a former minister of Chalmers Presbyterian Church, in which Mr. Veitch served in capacity of Kirk elder for so many years.

36227 THE WOOLWICH COUNCIL

A Woolwich Township Council was organized on January 21st, 1850. The councillors were: John Meyer, Edward Passmore, Peter Wenger, Peter Hay, and Wm. Veitch. They met "at Conestoga, in Kurtz's tavern." The members chose John Meyer as reeve and named James Dow as clerk and treasurer; Moses Springer as assessor on the east side of the Grand River and Christian Hurst on the west wide, each at 6 pounds ($24) a year; and Wm. Reynolds as collector, with a salary of five and a half per cent. of his collections. Charles Hendry was appointed auditor.

The council ordered a seal and studied a plan for building a bridge across the Conestoga River; appointed a road surveyor and considered the advisability of appointing a local superin-tendent of schools. For a number of years schools, bridges, roads, and the regulation of taverns were the chief items of business.

Waterloo County's provisional municipal council met in Berlin on May 3rd, 1852. Woolwich was represented by Reeve John Meyer and Deputy-Reeve Peter Wenger.

36228 " Many of the principal settlers of Dumfries came in about 1830. We earn from Mr. William Cowan, River Road, that the following well-known Dumfries families all sailed in the "Argus" of Workington, England, on the 3rd June, 1829: those of Francis Hogg, Walter Cowan, James Cowan, George Barrie and Hector Rennelson. The voyage was only nine weeks and two days!
The families of the following persons also came out together by the "Sarah Mary Ann," of Maryport, England, in April, 1831: George Land-reth, James Bunyan, Thomas Adams, John Kerr, David Brown, Adam Kersell, Robert Cranston, James and Walter Deans, John, Thomas and William Henderson, John and William Veitch, Robert Laidlaw (father of James Laidlaw M.P.P.), Paisley Block ; James Little and Robert Aitkin, Blue Lake, and James Davidson, Keg Lane, near Paris. With possibly one exception, all these families were from Roxburghshire, Scotland. Voyage - five weeks and four days.1a

1aReminiscences of the Early History of Galt and the Settlement of Dumfries in the Province of Ontario, by James Young

_____________________

THE first settlers of Dumfries were generally of a superior class. With few exceptions, they had received a good education at the Parochial Schools of their native land, and many of them brought with them to Canada a thirst for knowledge which even the necessities of bush life could not eradicate. This led to very early endeavours to combine instruction with amusement during their leisure hours.

It will surprise many to learn, however, that as early as 1834, when clearings were but few and far between, and when the wolf and bear were not unfrequent visitors, that a Debating society was in full blast during the winter evenings. Such was the fact„ however, and long and excit-ing were the discussions which took place.

The scene of these intellectual combats was the home Mr. John Reid, after whom the clachan of Reidsville has been called, and who only passed away to his rest a few months ago. The members of the society were Messrs.John Black, John Reid, Thomas and James Dalgliesh, William Veitch, Alex. Turnbull, Thomas Ritchie, William Hastie, Andrew Mathieson, James Cunningham, Andrew Elliott, John Currie, John Johnston, George Cunningham, Alex. Beckett, James Oliver, Thomas Cleghorn, and occasionally a few others. A majority of these gentlemen still survive, and the mere recital of their names will awaken in the minds of those acquainted with them, many pleasing, and possibly some sad, reminiscences of the past.

It is needless to say that this Society was an exceedingly vigorous one, and that the questions discussed were characteristic of the time. Among them were the following:
(1) Which is most benefit to mankind, Agriculture or Commerce ?
(2) Whether is the profane man or the hypocrite most injury to society?
(3) Which is the most destructive element, fire or water?
(4) Whether does wood or iron most benefit mankind ? and
(5) Would a ship made of iron sink or swim?

The debates upon these and similar subjects, which, in the absence of candles, sometimes took place by the light of burning pine knots, were characterised by deep interest and not a little talent, and, to use the language of one of the participants: "Nothing could exceed the enjoyment of these gatherings."

The annual dinner of the Debaters was an occasion never to be forgotten. It was also held at Mr. Reid's house, but the viands were provided by the members of the Society generally. It could not boast of the cuisine of Delmonico, nor of bills of fare in French and perfume. It was considered, however, a veritable feast at that time. The Society unitedly purchased a sheep. That was the first step. From this was made soup, a haggis-the oat-meal for which had to be brought from a drug store in Dundas and roast and boiled joints. Add to this description, a few " cakes of the period," and you have the dinner, gastronomically considered, in all its glory

It was, however, "the feast of reason and flow of soul" which followed, that gave the occasion its princi-pal attraction. The speeches-the songs-the hilarity-can be better imagined than described. As an illustration of the mirthful spirit which prevailed, it may be mentioned that, on one occasion, whilst ladling out huge platefuls of the steaming haggis, John Black, the chairman, vigorously recited Burns' address to that famous dish:

"Fair, fa your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o' the puddin' race;
Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe or thairm,
Weel are ye wordy of a grace
As lang's my arm."

Nothing could better illustrate the character of the early settlers of Dumfries than efforts at intellectual improvement under such formidable difficulties. It is not too much to say of them, that no part of Canada has been settled by a class of men of greater physical and mental energy. "None but Lowland Scotchmen would ever have cleared North Dumfries," is a remark which has frequently been made. This may be an exaggeration. But those who remember how heavily timbered, how stony and how swampy its rugged hills and valleys were forty years ago, will readily admit, that only the highest courage, and most indomitable energy and perseverance, could have made the township what it is today in the same space of time. Had their work to be done over again, could a magician's wand once more make Dumfries the tangled forest it was when this history began, we venture to say their descendants would never undertake to perform it!

Kossuth
Less than three miles distant from Fisher's Mills, to the north and west, was the site of another hamlet called Kossuth, but there is now nothing left to identify the location, unless possibly 'still some garden flowers growing wild, the place to disclose'.
The diversity of nationalities represented in this settlement is indicated by the names of those who carried on their respective trades there.
Switzerland was represented by the Zyrd family who carried on the business of making sulphur matches, well remembered by folks of my own age on account of the odoriferous brimstone smell and the ease with which a block of them might be ignited. In picking a match from one of the split blocks it was rather difficult to keep the whole package from lighting. The girls employed in making these matches were often very beautiful, it is said, but the brimstone odor of their garments prompted thoughts of the place of the damned. •

John Groh, a Pennsylvania Dutchman, made clay crocks and shallow clay pansions for milk, also flower pots.
Among those of Irish extraction were Alexander Venton who was a weaver of checked cotton and flannels, and James Bradley and James McCaffery and Sons who made shoes....

36266 Some stories long current about the cholera cannot be traced to any reliable source. But the floating rumour that four men who died of the pest were buried in one grave, near the eastern end of the stone bridge on the macadamised road, north of the town, is perfectly true. Two of those buried were named Lamberton and Vincent, and among those who took part in the burial was Alonzo Bliss, to whom reference has already been made. On returning home, Bliss said to his wife, "If cholera is catching, I will take it." This prediction, alas, proved too true. The next morning he was dead. Vincent

36271 Madison/ Seattle: Joyce Coppel, age 91, of Madison and more recently Seattle, passed away peacefully on Friday March 24, 2017 in Seattle. She was born on August 7, 1925 in Hamilton, Ontario Canada, the daughter of Harry and Frances (Bloom) Vineberg. She married Dr. Harry C. Coppel on September 3, 1950 in Hamilton, Ontario.

In 1950, while working as an office manager for a scrap dealer in Hamilton, our Mother agreed to a blind date with Harry, a young man from the small town of Galt, Ontario. This already accomplished scientist with a PhD in Entomology turned out to be the love of her life and on their 3rd date, he proposed. Later that year they married and moved to Belleville, Ontario.

In 1957, Joyce and Harry left Canada with their 2 children, when Harry accepted a job at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. They adapted to their new life in the USA and cultivated a circle of friends who were like family to them. Joyce was involved in volunteer activities, many associated with Temple Beth El Sisterhood and the Collector's Corner thrift shop. She was politically active as a Democrat and a feminist. Joyce was a member of the Wisconsin Women's Political Caucus, NOW and the Lysistrata Cooperative.

Joyce and Harry were happily married for 60 years before Harry died in 2010. Our Mother loved her children very much and was very proud of who they became and what they accomplished. We will miss her beautiful smile and spirit every day.

She is survived by her son, Dr. David B. Coppel (Renee); daughter, Ann G. Coppel; grandchildren Erica Coppel (Harry) and Adam Coppel; great-grandson, Odin Asher; and numerous nieces and nephews
Joyce is preceded in death by her loving husband, Harry and her parents.

Mel writes: I am the second child in a family of five and I grew up in Kitchener. At the age of fifteen, I started working at B.F. Goodrich and spent nearly forty-one years there -- retiring when the company was sold. I spent eighteen months in Elliot Lake, in 1957-58 for B.F.G.

I married Marj in 1949 and we started our family of four children. I became Baghiera in Brian's Cub Pack and stayed for thirteen years. The family, The church Board of Management and the M.S, Society kept me busy.

After retiring from B. F. Goodrich, I worked for thirteen years as a Court service Office in Family Court. I am now coasting and enjoying family and friends.

CELEBRATION OF THE LIFE OF MELVIN EDWARD VOEGTLE

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Let me summarize a few other memories;

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

Before concluding

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Unidentified Newspaper Obituary 
Edith Vogelsang
 
36317 "In the late 1980's, a group of concerned individuals decided to do something about the fact that rental housing was becoming increasingly hard to afford. At the time, the Federal Government of Canada used to sponsor a co-op housing program through the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC).

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

THE BUTTON FACTORY

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

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

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

The Button Industry


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

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


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

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

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

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

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

FIGURE IN MUSICAL WORLD

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

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

Born Musician

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

To Dr. A.S. Vogt

The following poem in the possession of Mrs. George Ruppel, a sister of the late Dr. A. S. Vogt, was written by S.T. Church and read to the famous conductor at a banquet tendered him on May 2, 1907 by the Toronto Glee Club:
In Old Oxford County, some twenty leagues West,
Where big cheeses flourish, and butter's, the best,
And the people are honest 'cause they never quite know
How to do up a fellow, before he does you:
There a youngster was born-like most of us were,
Not a rag to his back, and a scarceness of hair,
Not a sign of a purse or one cent to his name,
Nor else, to commend him to honor and fame.
His advent: occurred without herald or horn,
'Twas taken for granted, like the dawn of the morn,
So they wrapped him up warmly in garments of wool,
No trouble gave he,--when his stomach was full.
Year after year as older he grew,
'Twas clear to be seen what the lad 'meant to do,
"He's music'ly bent," the neighbors would say,
"He'll stir up the dust some day in some way.
As time, moved along with its measured old sway.
The lad jogged along 'mid his work and his play,
Knowing not what the future held kindly in store,
But he knew how to plod, and he plodded what's more.
By diligence rare he rose step by step.
A toiler was he while other folk slept,
He had the good sense to keep his mouth still
And grind well the grist that came to his(a) mill.
So perfect his (b) megi, and so great the demand
--Its fame even spread to the Yankee man's land-
That the whole country 'round came in throngs to behold
The grind of meal by this ( c ) miller so bold
So he kept the mill grinding from year unto year,
His smile tells of gladness, his laugh of good cheer,
Discouragements never his purposes stop
Like the hair on his head, he's come out on top!
Let's crow him with honor, this miller of note
Of whom critics have criticked their criticisms wrote
Extend the glad hand of the teller so wise
Who will wear a hat strictly normal in size
Let us wish him long life in this land of his birth,


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

Sir Robert Falconer Utters Touching Eulogy; Passing Mourned In Elmira

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

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

A Life of Achievement

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

______________________

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

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

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

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

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

36331 Oscar H. Vogt, Manufacturer And Noted Citizen, Is Dead

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

Oscar Vogt is dead.

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

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

Conscious to the End

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

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

Town Is Shocked

Death came at 9:15 o'clock.

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

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

Had Many Interests

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

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

Married in 1925

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

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

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

Funeral on Saturday

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

MRS. P. CHRISTMAN CELEBRATES HER EIGHT-SEVENTH BIRTHDAY


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

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

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

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

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

36333 On Sunday afternoon, long ago, J. R. Eden, G. M. DeBus and William Vogt strolled along David Street. Pointing to the right, Mr. Vogt said, "There'd be a fine spot for a central park. It has land, water and woods." His companions agreed the fact and Mr. Eden inserted an item in the press recommending the idea. Soon a plan was evolved to buy the athletic grounds and part of Samuel Schneider's lands up to the railway track. In the fall of 1894 a bylaw was introduced into the town council to adopt the Public Parks Act..

36337 VOISIN, George Gerard (February 20, 1953 - July 22, 2008) - George Voisin was the fifth child of Frank and Glady Voisin. He was the epitome of good health, exercise, and sensible eating. In spite of this, he passed away most unexpectedly while enjoying a round of golf on Tuesday afternoon. George is survived by his loving family, including his wife of 35 years, Elaine (nee Kuntz) and their four children: Ben Voisin and his wife Sabina who are expecting George's first grandchild; Dr. Heather Voisin and her fiancé, Dr. James Aru; Harmony Voisin; and Simon Voisin. His family and home were the centre of his universe. George is also survived by his parents, Frank and Glady Voisin, and his siblings: Greg and Marie Voisin, Mac Voisin, Anne and George Lavallee, Jane and Dr. Tom Simpson, Guy and Anne Voisin, Tina and Perry Arsdale, Paul and Tammy Voisin, Chris Voisin and Vince and Cathie Varga and his father-in-law Lorne Kuntz and his wife Elaine, his mother-in-law Edna Kuntz, and their six children: Lorne Jr. and his wife Joanne, Raymond and his wife Bonnie, Darlene, Diane Hinsperger and her partner Bryan Eckstein, Michael and Anne-Marie and her partner Svend Jacobsen. From an early age, it was obvious that George was blessed with a superior intellect. He skipped grade seven and jumped from grade eleven to university at the age of sixteen, received his Master's degree by twenty, and was working on a Ph.D. by twenty-one. He completed both his B.A. and M.B.A. at Wilfrid Laurier University; his M.A. at the University of Waterloo; and his LL.B. at the University of Windsor. His passion for the pursuit of knowledge and excellence was obvious in every area of his life. George was a noted tax lawyer and was respected across Canada as a leading authority in income tax and estate planning. Canadian tax law is an exceedingly complex specialty, and the fact that George was known as an authority in this area speaks to his great intellect, accomplishments, and dedication to his work. He was in partnership with Steve Lubczuk for 25 years. His staff knew, loved, and respected him, which speaks to the quality of person that George was. Together with his brother Greg, and their father Frank, George developed the Sunrise Shopping Centre in Kitchener, and owned and managed many other shopping centers across Ontario and Texas. George was a well-respected member of the community. In 2005, he was proud to be selected to join the Armenian community as an honourary member by Garo Bostajian. He was given the pseudonym 'Voisinian'. Additionally, he was a trusted and long-term advisor to the Roman Catholic Diocese and the Congregation of the Resurrection. George was also an active member of both the Kitchener-Waterloo Granite Club and Westmount Golf and Country Club. To many people, and most of all to his family and friends, George was a consigliere, a trusted advisor to whom they could turn for help with problems of a personal, legal or financial nature. His advice, which he came to with much thought and a few well-chosen words, would always be the perfect and final solution. His passing has left a huge void in the Voisin family, and indeed, the whole community. Visitations will be held at the Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home , 621 King St. W., Kitchener. The family received friends on Thursday, July 24 from 7-9 p.m. and on Friday, July 25, 2008 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Parish prayers were recited at 8:45 p.m. on Friday. Funeral services will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes Church at 173 Lourdes St., in Waterloo on Saturday, July 26, 2008 (today) at 10:30 a.m. A reception will follow at the Westmount Golf and Country Club at 50 Inverness Dr., in Kitchener at 12 noon, where a special eulogy will be given by George's brother, Greg Voisin. Since George was integrally involved in and dedicated much of his time and expertise to helping the Catholic Family Counseling Centre and the Family Violence Project of Waterloo Region, donations to either charity on George's behalf will be welcomed.

36364 VOISIN, Glady Rose (Voll) - March 10, 1921 - September 7, 2008. The family of Glady Rose Voisin is saddened by the passing of the Matriarch of their family on Sunday, September 7, 2008. She was blessed with a painless and peaceful death at home. Glady and Frank were married for 62½ wonderful years. There were no two people in love as much as Glady and Frank. They met in 1944 at the Summer Gardens which was a dance hall in Kitchener when Frank asked Glady to dance and the romance began. The dance turned into a lifetime of happiness for them. Glady and Frank had nine children. She made a loving home for all of them and their friends. She was the chief chauffeur, cook and care-giver. The focus of her life was Frank and her children. Glady is survived by her husband, Frank Voisin and their children, Greg and Marie Voisin, Mac Voisin, Anne and George Lavallee, Jane and Dr. Tom Simpson, Elaine Voisin (widow of George), Guy and Anne Voisin, Tina and Perry Van Arsdale, Paul and Tammy Voisin, Chris Voisin and dear family friends, Vince and Cathie Varga. Glady was predeceased by her son, George, in July 2008.

She was predeceased by her sisters, Dorothy Kraft, Bernice White, Ollie Pfeffer, and her brother, Gerald Voll. Gladys' greatest inspiration was her religion - she attended Mass faithfully and prayed to her friend, St. Anthony, for her friends, family and others who needed assistance. She was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes. Gladys' energy was unfailing and an inspiration to all. She crowded five lifetimes into one. Visitation will be at The Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home , 621 King St. W., Kitchener on Tuesday, September 9, from 7-9 p.m. and on Wednesday, September 10, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m., where parish prayers will be recited at 8:45 p.m. A funeral mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 173 Lourdes St., Waterloo, on Thursday September 11 at 11 a.m., followed by interment at Woodland Cemetery.

A special sale marks the 75th anniversary of Elmira's oldest hardware store, M. Weichel and Son Ltd., this week.

In December 1885 the Weichels moved their stock, valued at $4000 into a store which stood on part of the ground now occupied by the E. S. Otto building. Mr. Weichel carried on business here for a year, meanwhile working on the building which was to become his permanent store....

36392 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
 
36398 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.

36478 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.

36489 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.

36507 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
 
36508 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. Death was due to heart failure.

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.

36550 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.

36554 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

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.

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.

36579 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
.

36589 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.

36592 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.

36608 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

36613 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

36615 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.

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 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.

36666 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.

36681 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.

36683 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.

36707 Wambold.-On the 22d of March, in Waterloo Co., Ont., Herbert Newton H., son of Isaac A. and Emma M. Wambold, aged 11 months and 26 days. Funeral services by Moses Bowman in German from Psa. 16:6, "The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places: yea, I have a goodly heritage." and by Daniel Wismer in English, from the words, "Be ye also ready." Dear little Herbie had always been a bright and hearty boy, but was snatched away from our arms in a few short hours. In the evening, when his mamma had made him ready to sleep, he stretched his little arms to papa to be taken snugly to bed; but before midnight he lay in convulsions, which were followed by others and in about nine hours death released him.
"Dearest Herbie, thou has left us,
Here thy loss we deeply feel;
But 'tis God who has bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
Yet again we hope to meet thee,

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..
