39005 JOHN H. WESTFALL

\bJohn H. Westfall, 63, victim of accident on Monday Evening\b0

A collision in which a car was crushed between two transport trucks at 6: 00 o'clock Monday evening at the main intersection of Petersburg, on Nos. 7 and 8 Highway resulted in the death of John Henry Westfall, 63, of Petersburg, driver of the car. The truck drivers were uninjured. Mr. Westfall is said to have driven his car, an old, light model, out onto the highway directly in the path of a W&G Hutton trailer transport driven by Hugh Munro, Uniondale, with a 10-ton load of grain in the trailer. The truck was driving west. The impact drove the car into a truck owned by E. Meyers, Shakespeare, which was parked at the side of the road about 100 feet from the intersection, and then thre both the car and the parked truck about 15 feet off the road. Mr. Meyer's was across the road at the time of the accident. The first transport landed on top of the car and smashed it into the ground.

Mr. Westfall was taken from the car in an unconscious condition and died an hour later at the Kitchener-Waterloo Hospital. The car was completely wrecked and extensive damage was done to the truck driven by Mr. Munro. The other vehicle was driven out of the field under its own power with only superficial damage. Mr. Munro said that he had no idea what had happened. He stated that he was driving along with a clear road in front of him until suddenly the small car appeared directly in his path. The next thing I knew," he said. "There was a crash and I found myself in the ditch on top of the car, with the other truck a few feet in front." William Kelly, St. Marys, who was in the truck with Munro, bore out that statement.

Mr. Westfall is survived by his wife, Anna,; one son, Emerson, Merryhill; one daughter, Mr. H Demmerling, Waterloo; and a step-daughter, Mrs. R. Mousso, St. Catharines. He was born in Woolwich township and moved to the Petersburg district eight years ago.

39023 3 Galt Workmen Drowned in Tank; Overcome by Gas

Topple Into Two Feet of Water; Foreman Dies in Attempted Rescue

Galt - After consulting Crown Attorney Clement of Kitchener, Coroner James McQueen called an inquest for Monday night into the triple fatality at the septic tank of the city sewage disposal plant on Water Street South Tuesday morning in which three regular Board of Works employees lost their lives. The Coroner's belief the men were drowned when they were overcome by sewer gas, was confirmed by a postmortem performed. The victims were Harry E. Westwood, 58, widowers, father of five, City Sewer Inspector and city employee for 28 years; Albert Hatfield, 49, married, city employee for 11 years, and William E. (Pete) Britton, 31, father of two small daughters, employed by the city since the spring.

Victims of Methane Gas

A theory was advanced that the men were victims of methane gas, the presence of which cannot be detected, and that they toppled into the water which was only about a foot deep. The tragedy was not discovered until shortly before noon when Works Superintendent William McLellan motored to the plant to bring the men back to the city. He found the door open, but saw no trace of them. He went in to make inquiries at an adjoining garage, and with H. Kithen, a mechanic, went back to the building and made the discovery. Firemen were called, and one without a gas mask went down into the hole and attached ropes for lifting the bodies. Hatfield and Britton were wearing rubber boots, while Westwood, the foreman, had on leather shoes, which led to the belief that he probably gave his life in an attempted rescue, when the other two were overcome. Kitchen said he heard the men in the tank shouting about 45 minutes before the bodies were found. "We didn't think anything of it," he said. "They often called to each other for pieces of equipment or to have someone turn on a valve." The tank in which the men lost their lives is 12 feet long, 6 feet wide, with board covering and 16 feet deep.

39046 Regional councillor, former MPP, Wayne Wettlaufer dead at 71

KITCHENER - Longtime provincial and local politician Wayne Wettlaufer died Sunday morning of a suspected heart attack. He was 71.

He was elected to two terms as MPP for Kitchener Centre, between 1995 and 2003, in the Mike Harris Progressive Conservative government. In October, he was elected to Waterloo Regional council....Wettlaufer's death shocked colleagues on regional council, who only knew him for his vigour and work ethic.

He never missed a meeting at regional council, said Coun. Tom Galloway.

He also remembers Wettlaufer always sported a shirt, tie and dress jacket for public meetings, even when surrounded by councillors with open collars. "He was always a dapper dresser."

Regional chair Ken Seiling was impressed with Wettlaufer's inquisitive approach to debate at regional council.

Wettlaufer's conservative beliefs didn't stop him from asking questions to understand all sides of an issue, Seiling said.

"He wasn't ideological while sitting on council," he said.

Wettlaufer, a third-generation Canadian, was proud of his German heritage.

A past president of the German Canadian Congress, he also championed the German Pioneers Day legislation through Queen's Park in 2010, his wife said.

As MPP at Queen's Park, Wettlaufer served on several committees including the legislative finance committee, exchange committee with German governments to discuss finance and economics, education and health and the advisory committee to minister of finance.

He was a recipient of the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal, Germany Friendship Award and Minister of Culture Certificate of Merit

They remained in North Dumfries a great many years, and in 1844 moved into South Dumfries, where they ended their days.

39092 Despite the disadvantages, not to speak of the trials of "bush life," the time-scarred Veter-ans of those early times, look back with pleasure to the town's early history, and many and curious are the inci-dents they relate in regard to it.

During the construction of the mills and distillery, the prospects of the village and settlement manifested sonic scanty signs of improvement. A few more settlers began to come in, and the workmen from a distance employed on the new buildings made everything more lively. All the millrights employed were Americans, and the machi-nery had to be brought all the way from New York-a task of the greatest difficulty.

Three of the workmen, named Robert Gillespie, Ira White, and John McCleary, were conspicuous for their strong American sympathies. At this period, in fact, there were very few citizens of the United States who did not regard the speedy union of Upper Canada with the Republic, as a foregone conclusion. Among those also employed on the mills, were a few French Canadians, who, with others in the little village or around it, were just as loud in express-ing their British sympathies. When the work was nearly completed in 1819, the memorable Fourth of July came round, and for a lark, more than anything else, the Ame-ricans hoisted the stars and stripes from the gable of the mills I This so excited the ire of the French Canadians and others, that after considerable expression of loyal feeling-which was of double-distilled strength on the part of some in those days-an attempt was made to take the flag down. This was forcibly resisted by the Ameri-cans, and for a time a desperate fight was imminent, when more serious effects than a few scarred faces might have resulted. Mr. Shade, on hearing of the melee, hurried to the scene, and having gone on top of the mills and taken down the obnoxious flag, the breeze fortunately blew over.

This Chapel was constructed jointly by the New Connexion Methodists and the Evangelicals, who were to build their own church in 1863. In 1851 the congregation was on the Nassagaweya Circuit. Membership continued to grow with the resultant formation in 1858 of a new circuit, the New Hope Circuit. The name of New Hope was changed to Hespeler in the same year with the subsequent renaming of the circuit to the Hespeler Circuit. Early pastors were Revs. James Bell (1858), James Hall (1859-1860), James White (1861-1863), Elias Williams (1864-1866) and James Hill (1867-1870).
In 1874 at the 46th Annual Conference of the Methodist New Connexion Church it was reported that the Hespeler Circuit, which was described as being a Mission of Galt, in the Guelph District, had 4 Chapels, 1 parsonage, 1 Circuit preacher, 2 local preachers, 2 Sunday Schools and a congregation totalling 580 individuals. In the same year, 1874, the Wesleyan Methodists and the New Connexion Methodists united to form the Methodist Church in Canada.
Hespeler became a single charge c.1892 when the Rev. Dr. George H. Cornish was the minister, and from that date the church was considered to be self-supporting. Union with the Congregationals and some Presbyterian congregations resulted in the formation of the United Church of Canada on June 10, 1925; the Hespeler Methodist Church became known then as Hespeler United Church.
The 1849 stone church was torn down in 1868 to make way for a newer, larger stone church which was to remain the place of worship until 1961 when a new church was built on Franklin Boulevard. The final service was conducted in the old stone Hespeler United Church on October 8, 1961, and dedication of the new St. Luke's United Church was held a week later on October 15, 1961. The congregation celebrated its 150th Anniversary in 1987.1

39123 KITCHENER - Justice James Makins gazed at the man in the prisoner's box. But Reginald White kept his eyes fixed upon the courtroom floor.

Seven months earlier, he'd killed an elderly farmer and his blind sister with an axe in one of the bloodiest double-murders in local history. Now, with his own life hanging in the balance, he had nothing left to say.

"You have been found guilty of a most cowardly crime," the judge began. "I now sentence you … to be hanged by the neck until you are dead."...

White Guilty of Murder, to Hang April 25

Jury Slightly Over three Hours in Reaching Verdict; Prisoner Calm; Defence Will Appeal Conviction

Justice Makins in Accepting Finding Said "I Don't See How on the Evidence You Could Have Brought in Any Other Verdict" - "A Most Cowardly Murder," He Tells Prisoner
Condemned Man Remains Silent


Harry Wilson, 15 year old Hespeler youth, discoverer of the stolen Milroy car used by the murderer or murderers in their flight. It was found in the Bechtel bush on the outskirts of Hespeler on the back road to Galt. He is shown as he tried to dodge a battery of press cameras leaving the Galt police station Sunday.

…not the man whose name he had given and when asked his business in that section said he was down the road collecting a debt. Mr. Milroy had ordered him from the farm and later it was said wen Miss Milroy had asked him why he hadn't invited the man for dinner that he had replied "I didn't like the looks of him." that visitor was reported to have left the farm by way of a trail that led across the Milroy farm to the Cheese Factory Road. There were other stories of strange men being seen on the short cut," one of them on Wednesday last and again Saturday morning. It is these rumors that the police are concentrating on and running down.

The Discovery

It was around 2 o'clock that Mrs. Oliver left her home and proceeded a short distance to the dead end of the road which led to the Milroy homestead which stands about a quarter-mile back from the rod. Upon discovery of the two bodies, Mrs. Oliver hurried back to her own home, called Dr. L.H. Douglas of this city and then Stewart McBean, Branchton Road, a second cousin of the deceased and at whose farm the Milroy farmhands were assisting with the threshing. The men immediately quit their work and Harold Jenkins, owner of the threshing outfit and a county constable came with the party, which included women, to the Milroy home. Mr. McBean opened the door, saw the two bodies and came out and told the others of the gruesome sight and not to go in.

When Dr. Douglas arrived both man and woman were dead. He immediately notified the provincial police at Kitchener. Within a short time Sergt. Oliver and Constable Sid Cook of the provincial police and County Constable Albert Bevan were t the scene. They took charge and immediately set in motion a province-wide search for the slayer. Police in nearly all Western Ontario counties were advised by telephone of the number of missing Milroy car. It was a 1929 Essex dark blue sedan, bearing license 75315?. The police then started questioning the Milroy farm hands, Alexander Grand and Richard Rivers and also members of the Oliver family and others as to whether they had seen any suspicious characters. In the meantime Inspector C. Jordan of the provincial police, Kitchener and High County Constable Whitesides arrived and the inspector took charge.

Shortly after the news of the double murder became public, the police learned that three men, one carrying a rifle had been seen on the Stewart MacBean Farm. These boys proved to be groundhog hunters from Galt.

News Flashed

The news of the murder had been flashed all over the country with a description of the missing Milroy car and the police force on the scene grew in size. Owing to the absence of Dr. Ward Woolner, Chief Coroner of ? county, Dr. Louis V. Lang of Kitchener, a coroner, was called to the scene. He remained on the scene with Inspector Jordan permitted the removal of the bodies, around 7: 300 pm. The police then called in Ted Lamb, fingerprint expert and police photographer of Guelph and also a short-hand writer from that city. The photographer, for well over an hour was busy photographing the various rooms of the house as well as the back porch while the police made a moderate? search of the house from the cellar to the attic and continued their examination of the neighbors and farm hands.

Inspector Jordan was in frequent touch with provincial headquarters at Toronto, the rural telephone line to the Milroy home being kept open solely for his use. It was after 10 o'clock before Inspector Lougheed of the Criminal Investigation Department, Toronto, reached the scene and joined Inspector Jordan in the investigation. It was much later before the police left the scene to come back to the city. Inspector Jordan ordered a night and day guard placed on the property and two officers, Provincial Constable G. Hayes, and County Constable A. Bevan spend the night there with orders to keep everyone off the property. They were relieved shortly before 9 o'clock Sunday morning by Provincial Officer McGottrick ? and County Constable Morley Hattlar ?.

About 3 o'clock in the morning Wm. Oliver made a pot of tea and some sandwiches and took them over to the night watch. Alex Grant, son of the hired men spent the night at the Oliver farm, while Rivers came into town to stay at his home here. In the morning the farmhands returned to do the chores and will remain to look after the stock.

Guard Tightened


With hundreds of curious people visiting the neighborhood and a score or more of reporters and photographers milling around the police tightened their guard of the Milroy property and would let no one but officials get by the padlocked entrance. However late in the morning with the arrival of Inspector Lougheed and Jordan a few of the press men and photographers were permitted to go up the lane but were denied admittance to the house. The officers announced that a day and night guard would be maintained at the farm until they had completed their investigation.

Brought Mild Into Town

According to Alex Grant and Dick Rivers, the two farmhands, only four spent Friday night in the house, Mr. and Miss Milroy and themselves. They said Mr. Milroy, as was his custom got up at 5 o'clock Saturday morning to do the milking while they were doing other chores. They estimated it was about 7 o'clock that Mr. Milroy with his milk cans packed in the car, called them to join him as he drove them over to the Stewart MacBean farm to help with the threshing. That was the last time they saw their employer alive. Mr. Milroy proceeded into the city to deliver the milk to the dairy. He was seen on the Main Street early in the morning and according to police had purchased some gasoline while in Galt. He must have returned immediately to the farm and it is believed changed his clothes, ? when found he was wearing overalls.

When the abandoned car was found Sunday the gasoline tank was about a quarter-full, but police were unable to estimate just how much gasoline had been consumed from the time the machine was taken from the farm until it was found. They are checking up on this angle in an effort to ascertain how far the car had been driven.

One theory is that the car may have been driven to Hespeler by way of highway 24 and thence to the back road. It was said that roadmen working on the latter road Saturday did not recall seeing any car which answered the description of the Milroy machine.

However the course of the stolen car from the Milroy farm has not been established. It is said that the blue sedan passed the Oliver farm at a speed that was not customary for Mr. Milroy and that at the turn onto the Branchton Road, toward Galt, there was a noticeable skid mark in the gravel, indicating that the corner was taken at high speed. It is presumed that the car proceeded to the Hamilton highway but its progress has not been traced from there.

Table Prepared for Dinner

The scene in the parlor with the two bodies lying stretched out with the hands haltered and almost unrecognizable was a gruesome sight. Mr. Milroy was lying on his back with one hand up raised beside his head. He was facing towards the back of the room with his feet just over the entrance from the hall. Miss Milroy was lying face down on the parlor rug, a few feet nearer the front window of the house. She was partly on her side with her head resting on her right arm. Her legs were crossed and one shoe was lying a couple of feet away from the body. Behind her was a kitchen chair, on its side in front of the window, with one rung missing. This rung was found beneath the woman's shoulder and when the body was removed remained attached to the dress by a sliver. The parlor rug was saturated with blood for several feet around their heads.

In the dining room on the opposite side of the house there was a table set with clean dishes, indicating preparations had been made for the mid-day meal. On the table also rested a copy of The Galt Reporter. On the electric kitchen range there was a potato pot which had boiled dry.

A Helpful Brother

Neighbors reported that because of Miss Milroy's illness and impaired sight, her brother had been in the habit of assisting in housework and the preparing of meals and some believe that he had placed the potatoes on the stove while his sister was resting on the couch in the parlor. On this couch was come bed clothing with which it was believed Miss Milroy had covered herself with having a nap. Nearby were a couple of cups and a bottle which it was said contained liniment.

Girl Visits Milroy Home

It had been the habit during the vacation period for Jessie Oliver, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Oliver to pay frequent visits to the Milroy home and, because of Mill Milroy's indisposition to help in the housework and especially with the baking. In fact all of the Oliver children, of whom there are three boys, were almost daily visitors to the Milroy farm being favorites with the aged brother and sister. This fact assisted police in narrowing down the time of the murders as Jessie Oliver left her house at 9: 43 Saturday morning to go to the Milroy home to borrow some flour.

"When I went in," said Miss Oliver, "the parlor door was tightly closed. I went through into the kitchen and took the flour. There was no one around the house. I neither heard nor saw anything."

"Miss Milroy," said Miss Oliver "was in the habit of resting in the morning on the lounge in the parlor and it was not unusual for the door from the hall to be closed. When I saw it closed Saturday I assumed she was sleeping and not wishing to bother her, I did not open it."

Neighbors Wanted Slain Brother and Sister to Get Help in House

Mrs. Walter Oliver, an old neighbor of the Milroy's, said yesterday that if Mr. and Miss Milroy had done what the neighbors suggested this terrible crime might not have happened.

"If they had done what we wanted this would never have happened," she said. "We wanted them to get help but they didn't want to. They looked after things by themselves."

"I Killed Those People But Didn't Intend to, there Was a Fight", Reginald White is Said to Have Told the Police"
Defence Fights to Keep Alleged Statements from going to the Jury; Galt Constable Tells of Conversation With Accused Man in Cells


Confession to Double-Slaying Made in Provincial Police Headquarters at Kitchener - Sims in Questions Places Emphasis on Emotional Stress - Call Witnesses to Testify as to Circumstances Under Which Three Statements Secured - Accused Talked Freely to Constable Walter Scott About Milroy Crime.
(By Staff Reporter)

Kitchener, Feb. 2? - Whether or not any type of a so-called third degree was used by police in the securing of any of the three alleged statements from Reginald White, who is facing a murder charge, occupied the entire afternoon session of Supreme Court here today. White who resides in Hespeler, is charged with the murder of John Milroy, whose body was found beside that of his sister Annie, lying in pools of blood in the parlor of their home near Branchton on August 19.

The defence, being conducted by J.K. Sims of Kitchener assisted by R.M. Myers of Galt, raised objection to the statements being submitted to the jury, Mr. Justice Makins dismissed the jury until 10 am, Thursday and Special Prosecutor Martin presented witnesses who testified as t the circumstances surrounding the securing of the three statements.

As to Emotional Stress


Defence Counsel Sims who was most emphatic in his cross examination of the witness. On occasion he was forcible in inquiring into the emotional stress, if any, of the secured when he gave the statements. In the case of the third statement, he asked the Kitchener court reporter, C.N. Phelps, who had taken the statement in shorthand, if the accused was crying, or if he was perspiring, and if so to what extent. Phelps said that just before White had started his statement he had covered his face with his hands but there was no sign that he had been crying. He was perspiring, however.

The three statements in question were taken by police in three different locations. One was recorded in Hespeler, the second in Galt and the third, the contents of which were not divulged by the prosecution, in the provincial police office in Kitchener.

"I Killed Them"

According to Inspector W.M. Lougheed, White made this admission to him!

"I want to tell you all about it and get it off my chest. I killed those people. I didn't intend to, but there was a fight."

Inspector Lougheed testified that the accused's condition of the double slaying was made in Provincial Police Headquarters at Kitchener the third day after the tragedy Aug. 19. White was arrested Aug. 21.

"Shortly after White was taken from the city jail at Galt to Kitchener, Sergeant Albert Whitesides called me into the office of the Provincial Police Inspector, where he was sitting, "related Inspector "From information I had received before-hand I said: "Well Reg, do you want to see me?"

White replied: "Yes, I want to tell you all about it, and get it off my chest. I killed those people. I didn't intend to, but there was a fight."

Constable in Cells

The second statement, which was taken in Galt by Constable Walter Scell of the Galt police, was received in the cells. After White had been arrested and placed in the cells for the night, Constable Scott, dressed in "old clothes" was also placed in the cell block and talked with the accused on various occasions during the hours between midnight and 7 am.

Mr. Justice Makins had ruled that he would hear the applications for admittance of the three statements one at a time and when court adjourned for the day the ruling had been brought down by His Lordship.

White is Calm

During the day's proceedings, Reginald White, the accused, showed no indication of being affected by the testimony of the numerous witnesses. As on the previous two days he continued to periodically look around the court room. If any sign at all was visible about White, it was merely that of possible fatigue.

At both the morning and afternoon sessions the courtroom was crowded to capacity and some intended onlookers were turned back as the doors were closed.

Justice Makins Addresses Jury


At 2: 15 this afternoon the opening session of the Supreme Court was adjourned until 10 am Tuesday when the grand jury will report on the cases referred to it if decisions have been reached by that time.

(City Staff Reporter)
Kitchener, Feb. 5 - The winter assizes of the Supreme Court of Ontario opened here this afternoon at one o'clock with Mr. Justice Makins presiding. Following his address, the grand jury retired to its recess to consider the crown's cases in two murder and two manslaughter charges. The grand jury is composed of A.L. Bennet, Galt, foreman, Nelson Amy, Waterloo Township, H.J. Bassett, Galt, Simon Dittner, Wilmot Township, W.J. Deroit, Kitchener, P.G. Dietrich, Galt, John McLaughlin, Hespeler, David Schmidt, Waterloo Township, Robt. Scroggins, Galt, Henry Schleuter, Wellesley Township, F.H. Schummer, Wellesley Township, and Frank Whittaker, Waterloo Township.

W.A. Martin of Toronto is the special prosecutor and will be assisted by Crown Attorney W.P. Clement of Kitchener. In the murder charges involving Reginald White of Hespeler, accused of slaying john and Annie Milroy, of North Dumfries Township, on Aug. 19 last, the accused will be defended by J.K. Strub of Kitchener and R.M. Myers of Galt.

Justice's Address

Upon the completion of the selection of the grand jury, his lordship, Mr. Justice Makins, is addressing the court, explained there were four indictments, two for murder and two for manslaughter. He didn't know that the county was to be complimented on its record this time because he found more or less serious crime to be dealt with at this session. This county was never used to that, he said. Its citizenship had been law-abiding. His lordship went on the say there were two serious charges of murder and two of manslaughter. He warned the jury to go to their room with an open mind and make their decisions on the evidence as they heard it from crown witnesses.

Continuing he said if the Crown made out a prima facts case the jury should bring in three bills. But if the evidence in the minds of the jurors fall short of that, it was their duty to bring in no bills. He then went on to explain that there was a middle course. The murder charges could be returned to manslaughter and in the manslaughter cases the charges could be reduced to dangerous driving. In regard to the manslaughter charges he explained to the jurors that there were three different degrees of negligence and made it clear "you do not try these cases. That is up to the petit jury."

The Murder Charges

Justice Makins then went on to say there were the two murder charges against Reginald White, that he did unlawfully murder John Milroy and similarly murder Annie Milroy, sister of John, both residents of North Dumfries. He outlined how White had previously been employed at the Milroy farm and it was said he had wielded an axe on both and stolen a motor car. It was also said human blood had been found on White's clothing and that he had made a confession.

As to Confession

"I am not going to say anything about the details of the alleged confession," said Justice Makins. "It may and it may not be allowed in the public court and for that reason I am not divulging any of the details. In fact, I do not know them."

Continuing he said that in the White case the jury must consider whether it was murder or manslaughter.

The jury retired at 2: 15 to its rooms and the petit jurors were dismissed until 10 am Tuesday.

39148 POPULAR FORMER OFFICER OF 11TH GIVES LIFE FOR HIS COUNTRY.

FOUR OTHER GALT MEN ARE REPORTED TODAY AS WOUNDED.


Killed in Action.

Capt. J. Frank Welland.

Wounded.

Bombardier L. V. McCreith, M. M.
Pte. Ernest W. A. Rundstaller
Pte. David Whitla
Pte. Albert C. Spurgeon

Galt today has a heavy toll of casualties. The community was shocked at the receipt of news of the death in action on Nov. 5th of Capt. Joseph Frank Welland, only son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Welland, 22 Glebe street, and an exceptionally popular officer.

Most of today's casualties were sustained during the first week in November and it is presumed they occurred in the fighting in which the Canadians took part in the vicinity of Passchendaele.

Much sympathy is felt for the bereaved family of the late Capt. Welland, whose demise so early in life is regretted by all. In giving his life for his country in the fight for righteousness, the late Capt. Frank Welland displayed the true spirit of a soldier. Had he been agreeable he would have been sent home in February last. The late officer was a sufferer from asthma and after being engaged as an instructor in England for some months, and his opportunity came to go to France, he doctored himself up for the asthma and was successful in eluding the Medical Board and got away to France. It was during the first week in May that Capt. Welland crossed the channel and went to the firing line. He had just recently been in London and Scotland on a well-earned leave and had been back in France only three weeks when he met his death.

The late Capt. Welland was in his 25th year and was born near Galt on a farm. The family moved into Galt when he was young and he had spent practically all his life here. He was educated at the Dickson school and on graduating from the Collegiate Institute took a school teacher's course at the Hamilton Normal school. On obtaining his certificate he taught school for a short time at Freelton and then became assistant principal of St. Andrew's school in this city, which position he had very capably filled for a year and a half when he enlisted with the 111th Battalion. Deceased had been very successful at his chosen profession and had a most promising career.

His Military Career.

It was in 1913 that he entered upon his military career with his cousin, Capt. Fred Welland, now home after being wounded. He spent his summer vacation that year taking a cadet instructor's course at London and while in that city enlisted as a private with the 7th Fusiliers. When he returned to Galt after the holidays he became attached to the 39th Regiment, H. L. I. of C., and took out a lieutenant's commission, later qualifying for his captaincy and also as a field officer. When the 111th Battalion was being organized, he joined this unit along with his cousin, Capt. Fred Welland, and was placed second in command of A Company. He proved a most efficient officer, beloved by his men and greatly devoted to his work. He had specialized in bombing in England and was complimented by the Brigadier in England on the work of his bombing department. He was employed as an instructor all the time he was in England and on going to France had held various important positions as bombing officer, acting adjutant and for a time was attached to the Intelligence Department. In the same unit, to which the late Capt. Welland was attached in France there was another former 111th officer, Lieut. Yates of Preston.

Only Monday, three letters were received from the deceased officer, two by his family and one by his cousin, Capt. Fred Welland, whose letter was written from Scotland before he returned to France.

The death of the late Capt. Welland is mourned greatly by his cousin, Capt. Fred Welland, as the two cousins were greatly attached to each other and were more like brothers. They were associated with each other in practically everything they undertook, going to school together, and then enlisting in the same battalion.

Deceased was a member of the Baptist church, and was also identified with the local Y.M.C.A. Besides his grief stricken parents, there survive four sister, Misses Isabelle and Ida, nurses in St. Louis; Elizabeth and Stella at home, the former a teach at Manchester school and the latter also a teacher, but at present attending Business College.

M. M. Hero Wounded.

Mrs. Rolland McCreith, Spruce street, was notified this morning that her youngest son, 84169 Bombardier Leo Vernon McCreith, M. M., who enlisted with the 16th Battery, Canadian Field Artillery at Guelph, shortly after the war broke out, had been admitted to the 6th British Red Cross Hospital at Etaples on Nov. 1, suffering from a gunshot wound in the right foot. Bombardier McCreith went overseas with the second contingent and has been in France nearly three years. Some months ago he was awarded the Military Medal for conspicuous bravery in the field. This is the first time he has figured in the casualty list. This father and only brother are also in uniform.

39170 ANOTHER SUDDEN DEATH
On Monday afternoon the death of Carrie, beloved wife of M. T. Bechtel, V. S., took place at her home on Arthur street. The deceased had not been very well for several weeks preceding, but nothing serious was apprehended until a week ago, when she suddenly became worse, owing to a serious affection of the heart. Everything that medical skill and careful nursing could do was done for her, but, though she rallied from two attacks and hopes were entertained of her recovery, a sudden collapse ended her acute sufferings, and she passed peacefully to her rest about 2.15 on Monday afternoon. Mrs. Bechtel was a quiet, kindly disposition and enjoyed the esteem of a wide circle of friends, who heard with a shock the news of her sudden demise, few knowing of her being seriously ill.
Deceased leaves a sorrowing husband, a little daughter of four, her father and mother (Mr. and Mrs. James Whyard, of Dungannon), five sisters and four brothers to mourn her early departure.
The funeral will take place on Thursday morning at 9 a.m. After a short service at the house, the remains will be taken via C.P.R. to Dungannon, where they will be buried in the family plot.
The Advertiser extends sympathy to the bereaved ones.

39172 St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church

A congregation was formed in 1834 by the missionary Rev. Friedrich Wilhelm Bindemann. The first church, known as the German Protestant Evangelical Church, was built on the south side of Church and Queen Streets in 1848 with Rev. Bindemann as the first pastor. The name of the church was changed on Easter Monday, 1869 to St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church at Berlin, Ontario. Two years previously St. Paul's had called Rev. Adam Ernst who succeeded Rev. H.W.H. Wichmann. Pastor Ernst's conditions to the congregation when accepting its call were that 1) the congregation join the Missouri Synod and 2) the church's name be changed. In the fall of 1871 the congregation made the decision to affiliate with the Eastern District, Missouri Synod. Pastor Ernst was followed by Rev. Peter Andres, from 1881-1894.1a

39173 As was done for the other five churches in the earlier essay, a brief history of St. Paul's is appropriate here. The original Elmira Lutheran congregation was St. James, organized in 1850 with a church erected seven years later. When Rev. H.W.H. Wichmann was minister of St. James in 1859, he carried the banner of the Missouri Synod and within a few months had convinced many members of the congregation to follow him and create a second Lutheran church in Elmira, St. Paul's. Those who remained with St. James were part of the Lutheran Synod of Canada.

Lutheran
St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church
Begun: 1861

St. Paul's branched off from St. James, Elmira in 1861 when part of its congregation stated preference for, and acceptance of, conditions suggested by H.W.H. Wichmann of the Missouri Synod regarding a new constitution; Rev. Wichmann was pastor of St. James for eight months, and subsequently of St. Paul's after the split in the congregation. Rev. Wichmann, who also served Floradale, was followed by Pastor John Adam Ernst (1863-1881). Rev. Ernst, who was installed on August 2, 1863, was pastor as well for Floradale, Salem, Linwood, Berlin, Petersburg, Wellesley, Poole and Wallace from his base at Elmira. Floradale and Elmira were separated in 1873; Rev. Ernst looked after Elmira and C.T.W. Brandt accepted a call to Floradale. St. Paul's, Elmira had become a Missouri Synod church on January 23, 1870.

The first services during the pastorate of Rev. Wichmann were held in a school building, but a brick church was built, and dedicated on November 16, 1862. A decision was made by the congregation on January 2, 1889 to build a new, larger church. The cornerstone of the present church was laid in June of the same year. The new building was dedicated on the first Sunday after Trinity in 1889. The old church was not torn down until the new one was completed.

39174 Obituary - We record this week the close of a very remarkable life, in the death of Mrs. Hespeler, aged 90 years and a few days, one of the oldest, if not the oldest, person in Galt. Mrs. Hespeler was one of the links connecting the present life with that of the last century. She was born at Ehningen, Wurtemberg, Germany, and witnessed there for many years most of the stirring events which occurred during the Napoleon wars. She frequently saw Napoleon 1, and many of the Crowned Heads of Europe at that time, as well as many of very celebrated Generals of the allied armies. In 1812 she witnessed the return of the French Army on its retreat from Moscow, and her description of their terrible sufferings and appearance from wounds, frost-bites and hunger, were most thrilling. Her description may be best appreciated when it is known that of the Wurtemberg contingent which accompanied Napoleon 1, in the Russian campaign, only five percent, ever again reached their homes. Early in the present century Mrs. Hespeler and her husband were largely engaged in business with the House of Meyer Anschel Rothschild, of Frankfurt, the founder of the great Banking House. She often spoke of the little back parlor at Zion Rothen Schilde, and the quiet steadfast business manner of the great man who has since left his mark upon the financial dealings of all Europe. In 1840, her husband died, leaving her with all the responsibility of a large family to bring up and educate. In 1852 she decided to emigrate to Canada, where her children had preceded her, her two sons, the late Jacob Hespeler, and Mr. Wm. Hespeler, then occupying prominent positions as Millers, Merchants and Manufacturers at Preston, Hespeler and Waterloo. In 1872 Mrs. Hespeler returned to Germany, thinking there to end her days, but returned, we believe, within the year, finding, like so many under similar circumstances, that so far as her native country was concerned, she had outlived her friends and could no longer enjoy the changed features of the old home life. Possessed of a very retentive memory, and having been a most extensive traveler in that country and Italy, her reminiscence of scenes there were always powerfully described and very interesting, and when in her later years she met her old friends, nothing gave her greater presence than when talking over the eventful scenes through which she had passed her long life.

39182 Wideman - Abram H., son of the late Abraham B. and Anna (Hembling) Wideman, was born in Osceola Co., Iowa, Aug. 24, 1891; died Oct. 27, 1939; aged 48y. 2m. 3d. He with 3 others in a car were on their way home from a S. S. Conference held at Duchess, Alberta, Oct. 22, where he had been enjoying himself, feeding on spiritual food. On the way home they were caught in a severe snowstorm 37 miles east of Calgary. After great difficulty they found refuge in a farm home, and stayed there 2 1/2 days because of the impassible roads. He was taken seriously ill at this home, and as soon as possible was rushed to the hospital in Calgary, where he died a day and a half later, death caused by cerebral hemorrage. He was unconscious until death relieved him. Why one who was so much needed in the home was taken so suddenly is hard to understand, but sometime, somewhere, these mysteries will be unfolded. He was married to Hattie Kilmer Dec. 15, 1911. To this union were born 5 sons and 4 daughters: Floyd, Kenneth, LaVern, Delmer Allen, Ronald, Alice Louella at Kitchener, Ont.; Arvilla Nancy, Vera (Mrs. Lloyd Yoder), and Bernice LaVonne. He leaves his loving companion, 9 children, 1 grandchild, 3 brothers (Ed, Sheridan, Oreg.; Ivy and Menno, Tofield), 3 sisters (Mrs. Milton Sitler, Mrs. Will Boettger, Mrs. Lee Roth). His parents, 3 brothers, and 3 sisters predeceased him. He with his parents moved to Mayton, Alberta in 1901. After his marriage he moved to Suffield where he homesteaded. He lived there 2 years, moving back to Mayton, where he resided until 1918, when he moved to Tofield. From 1923 to 1927 he lived at Petoskey, Mich. He returned to Tofield for 2 years and then from 1929 to 1932 he again resided at Petoskey. The remaining years he lived at Tofield where he resided until his death. Bro. Wideman united with the Mennonite Church in his youth, remaining a faithful member until death. His children are all members of the church of his choice with the exception of two who are yet in their tender years. The funeral services, conducted at the home and at Salem Mennonite Church were largely attended. Brethern J. B. Stauffer and M. D. Stutzman in charge. Text, Job 30: 23. Buried in Mennonite Cemetery.

39215 Henry Wideman, "son of John Wideman, was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, in 1757. When a young man he joined the church of his choice, the Mennonite, and in course of time it was noticed that he possessed such talents that fitted him for the ministry, to which position he was ordained after being a middle-aged man. He was well liked and highly respected by all who knew him. Hearing of so many of his co-religionists moving from his and other counties of Pennsylvania to Canada, he, with his wife, family and others, followed their co-religionists and also moved to Canada in 1803 (They left their home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, May 16th, 1803, and arrived on the 8th Concession, Markham Township, York County, August 1st, 1803) and settled in Markham Township, York County, then all forest save a few clearings made here and there a year or so previously. Here they resided until his death (His death was caused by a tree falling on him while he was engaged in clearing away the forest on his farm) which took place June 24th, 1810. He was the first regular ordained Mennonite minister in Canada. A year later we find that one was ordained at the Twenty, Lincoln County, Ontario. Rev. Mr. Wideman's family (The family is not given in their proper rotation of birth) consisted of the following children"

39225 John L. Wideman, "the only son of Andrew and Anna (Lehman) Wideman, was born December 22nd, 1833. When a boy he attended the schools of the neighborhood where he obtained such an education as the public schools then afforded. When old enough to give a helping hand on the farm he was obliged to put by his books and perform such duties generally falling to the lot of the 'Farm Boy'. Not having any inclinations to the agricultural pursuits of life, the subject of our sketch chose that of the mercantile which seemed to be more natural and acceptable to his inclinations. In 1852 when only nineteen years of age, he left his parental home and came to Berlin, Waterloo County, where he was engaged as clerk in John W. Eby's store. Here he remained four months then went to St. Jacobs where he was clerking for George W. Eby who was then doing an extensive business in general merchandise. Here Mr. Wideman remained for nearly two years. In fall of 1854 he entered into partnership with Messrs. Tobias Yost and Rev. Philip Winkler under the name of Yost, Winkler & Wideman, as general merchants. This partnership was dissolved soon after the decease of Mr. Yost in 1856. In June, 1865, he received the appointment as post master for St. Jacobs, Ontario, and in 1866 he was elected as councillor for the township of Woolwich. In the year following he was elected as deputy reeve which position he still holds. Some twenty years ago he was appointed a justice of the peace for the county of Waterloo by the Ontario government. In June, 1874 he was also appointed issuer of marriage licenses. Mr. Wideman has, by his great perseverance and well directed energy combined with honorable and upright dealings, established a record and name for himself that shall not pass away for generations to come. He is a citizen worthy of imitation, and is genial and bland, always in good humor, and wears a smiling face for all. He is very affable and talkative, and I dare say no man ever saw him moody or morose. To all he is kind and courteous, charitable and humane, and always ready to extend a favor to any worthy object. On March 12th, 1854, he was married to Margaret, daughter of Jacob and Regina Dorothea (Schneider) Winkler. To them was born one child"

JOHN LEHMAN WIDEMAN

John Lehman Wideman was born in the Township of Markham, in York County, Province of Ontario, on December 27th., 1833, and died in St. Jacobs on December 6th., 1917. His father was Andrew Wideman who was born in Pennsylvania in 1805, and in 1828 had married Anna Lehman, who was born in 1805 and died in 1848. Andrew Wideman died in 1868. To him and his first wife were born a family of one son and two daughters.

John L. Wideman, the son, remained on the farm with his father until the age of sixteen. He attended the common schools of the day and later worked at the carpenter trade for about two years.

In August, 1852, he came to Berlin, now Kitchener, and engaged with John W. Eby as clerk in his dry goods and drug store. In November of the same year he went to St. Jacobs as clerk in the general store of George W. Eby. In the fall of 1854 he became a member of the firm of Yost, Winkler and Wideman, general merchants. For many years after, the subject of this sketch held many positions of trust and responsibility.

He was a member of the Woolwich Township Council from 1866 till 1873 and became township clerk in 1873, holding the position for thirty-two years. In 1867 he was appointed clerk of the Seventh Division Court, resigning in 1893. Mr. Wideman was postmaster of St. Jacobs for forty-four years, having been appointed in 1865. He was a notary public since 1879, chairman of the License Board of North Waterloo for ten years, and at the time of his death a director of the Waterloo Mutual Fire Insurance Co.

In religion he was a devoted member of the Evangelical Association, holding many offices in the gift of the church, and always actively engaged in its interests. For many years he was principal agent in Canada for the publishing house, in Cleveland, O., of the Evangelical Association. In the replacement of the old church building of this denomination, in St. Jacobs, with a new one he was particularly active during the last years of his life.

Politically he was an ardent Liberal, having, as he often said, received his first lessons in politics from the Hon. Wm. McDougall.

Mr. Wideman was a member of the Waterloo Historical Society from its beginning, was for two years Vice-President for St. Jacobs, made valuable donations to its collection and was always greatly interested in its progress. He married Margaret Winkler on March 12th., 1854. Mrs. Wideman died in 1896. To them was born one daughter who died some years ago.

J. L. WIDEMAN, the veteran Clerk of Woolwich Township, was born in the Township of Markham, York County, Ontario, Dec. 27th 1833. He served the first sixteen years of his life on a farm, after which he was a carpenter for two years. In 1852 he was engaged in John W. Eby's drug store in Berlin as clerk, but in the fall of the same year he came to St. Jacobs and engaged as clerk in the general store of Geo. W. Eby. In the fall of 1854 he became a member of the firm afterwards known as Yost, Winkler & Wideman, general merchants, and which continued for several years. He collected the taxes of Woolwich Township for three years in succession, from 1861 to 1863. In later years he carried on a general mercantile business in St. Jacobs, and for about 18 years he had the wholesale agency of the publishing house of the Evangelical Association, of Cleveland, Ohio, for Canada, and supplied the Canada Conference of that denomination with books.

The daughters are Irene (Mrs. Ezra Stauffer) and Mary (Mrs. Roy Roth). Her mother preceded her to the spirit world in 1925 and her father 11 months ago. With her husband she moved to Mayton, Alta., March 11, 1901, where they made their home until March 11, 1915. Then they moved to Hubbard, Oreg. There they resided until the Fall of 1917, when they returned to Mayton, Alta. The following spring (1918) they moved to the Tofield district, where they remained until the time of her departure. She leaves a loving husband, 5 sons, 3 daughters, 6 grandchildren, 5 brothers, and 3 sisters. Sister Lehman united with the Mennonite Church in the fall of 1901, of which she remained a faithful member to the time of her departure, faithfully discharging her duties as a minister's wife (her husband having been ordained to that office since 1906). Sister Lehman was much interested in caring for the sick. Many days and nights were spent in caring for sick persons. The Sister failed in health about a year ago, but her health was again restored sufficiently in the spring so that she was able to attend communion services. Late this summer she took a turn for the worse and during the latter weeks especially she suffered severe pain almost continually day and night. She expressed a desire to depart and be with Christ, stating that her Savior could not come too soon to take her Home. On Sunday afternoon her request was granted and she found rest. Funeral services were conducted at the Salem Mennonite Church, conducted by Bro. Isaac Miller of Mazeppa, Alta. (Texts Psa. 91; Jas. 4: 14), also by Bro Henry Harder of Didsbury, Alta. (Psa. 116: 15), assisted by the home ministers. Interment in cemetery near by.

39268 Niagara-on-the-Lake man finds 1945 letter stashed in house then finds its writer
New Hamburg author was at Bible School when she created time capsule

Tara Walton/News services

Liese Wiebe had all but forgotten the letter she'd written on Feb. 23, 1945.

That would be the one she'd stuffed into a glass jar, along with a couple of King George VI pennies and Bible-related pamphlets, and then placed between the joists at the end of a second-floor crawl space under the roof.

The letter tells of life in the big Niagara-on-the-Lake house, then a Mennonite Bible school and dormitory, and mentions her teachers by name.

"We have had many a blessed hour within these walls," says the letter, adding later that "two precious souls found peace and received the Lord as their personal saviour."

But at the end there also comes a plea: "When you find this letter, please write me, will you?"

In the event, Jens Ramputh didn't do that, but he did hit the local phones when he discovered the jar a week ago while renovating his house.

Wiebe, it turns out, still lives in nearby Virgil, and Ramputh was soon heading her way, the jar in tow.

"She's still very coherent, and that was what was nice about it," says Ramputh, now on leave from his job as a United Nations airline pilot while his house is being renovated.

"I suppose I expected somebody to find it," says Wiebe, who will turn 90 Nov. 5. Or, at least, she reckons she did when she first put the letter in the jar. "I never thought of it again. I certainly didn't think it would end up like this."

A Russian Mennonite, she'd come to Canada with her family as a 4-year-old from what's now Ukraine, and settled in New Hamburg.

When she wrote the letter as a 22-year-old, she was in the middle of year-long Bible studies '97 one of 40 or so students staying at a house with its own illustrious and tangled history.

Originally built in 1794, it had been torched by the invading Americans during the War of 1812, and then rebuilt in 1820.

Another fire in the 1930s prompted further modifications, and the place then served as a Mennonite Bible college from the Second World War until the mid-1980s.

Ramputh is now busy restoring the house to its 1820 self, which is how Trisha Romance depicts it in her painting, White Christmas.

"It's the epitome of the Georgian house," says Ramputh, who asked Wiebe if he could keep her original letter to include in a little exhibit about the place when it reopens as a bed-and-breakfast in the spring. "It's all on a grand scale."

There is, however, still one mystery. Wiebe's wasn't the only letter in the jar. A second dispatch was penned by one of her three roommates, Elsie Fast, then 18.

"This letter is very hard to write knowing it is to someone that I don't know," it says, before giving a detailed description of Fast herself: 5-foot-5, 120 pounds, hazel eyes and brown hair.

Fast's letter also wants the finder to make contact. "When you find this letter, I want you to write to me and keep the pennies for a good luck piece."

When Ramputh first started making phone calls, he was looking for anyone with the surname Fast. But while someone by that name didn't have any Elsies in the family, they just happened to know that a certain Liese Wiebe was living in a nearby retirement home.

Wiebe says she hasn't had any contact with Elsie Fast since they were roommates, but maybe that will change, too.

"I hope I can find the other lady," says Ramputh. "Somebody will know somebody."

39284 Former Resident Meets With Fatal Accident

Herman Weise Killed at Strathroy in Level Crossing Accident

Mr. Herman Wiese, a former well-known resident of New Hamburg died in the Strathroy hospital about 4 o'clock on Monday afternoon as a result of injuries received when his car was struck by a C. N. R. passenger train about seven o'clock on Sunday evening. His daughter, Evelyn, aged 17 and Ada Colgrove, daughter of Rev. Mr. Colgrove of the United Church, the other occupants of the car were cut by flying glass and suffered severely from shock.

The Wiese car was proceeding north across the crossing on the way to church when it was struck by the Maple Leaf east-bound flier, No. 4. in charge of Conductor Totten. The machine with its three passengers was thrown about 50 feet along the track and badly demolished. From the wreckage the two girls were able to extricate themselves, but Mr. Wiese was in a semiconscious condition. The occupants of the car were removed to Strathroy hospital, where Dr. G. P. McFadden attended. Wiese's condition was regarded as critical from the first as he suffered head injures, fracture of both thighs, and internal injuries, to which he succumbed on Monday afternoon.

A preliminary hearing was held on Monday night into the fatality. High Constable Wharton impaneled a jury which after viewing the body adjourned until June 2 at 2.30 p.m.

It is believed that Mr. Wiese as he approached the tracks became confused by the approaching trains, and also by the glare of the sun, and misjudged the distance. His car stopped right in front of the train and was completely wrecked.

The late Mr. Wiese was about 68 years of age and was born in Kitchener. He came to New Hamburg about 40 years ago and for many years was employed as head carver in the Hahn furniture factory here. During his residence here he was a faithful member of Trinity Lutheran Church. He was a member of the church choir and for some years a church trustee. He was a member of the local Oddfellow lodge and had a wide circle of friends who were deeply grieved to learn of his tragic death. The late Mr. Wiese moved with his family to Strathroy about 23 years ago, where he was foreman in the carving department of the Strathroy furniture factory.

During his residence in Strathroy the late Mr. Wiese took an active interest in the affairs of of the town. He was a member of the town council for a number of years and at the time of his death was member of the town hall committee. He was also prominent in fraternal affairs of the Oddfellows and Foresters.

The deceased leaves his sorrowing widow, one son, Dr. Theodore Wiese, of Bell River, and one daughter, Evelyn, at home. His eldest son, Harold, made the supreme sacrifice in the world war.

The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon from his late home to the Strathroy cemetery and was conducted by Rev. F. H Brownless, rector of the Anglican church where the deceased worshipped. The pallbearers were Mayor Frank Langan and other prominent citizens of the town.

39285 The name of the person who was the real founder of the largest and to the inhabitants of Preston the most important establishment has so far been mentioned only incidentally, but since he well deserves special mention, a brief review of his achievements will no doubt prove interesting. The name of this party is Mr. Robert Hunt, a quiet, unassuming man, benevolent in disposition, closely attending to his business and possessed of superior tact and business qualities. It was about the year 1845 that Mr. Hunt came to Preston. The water privilege now known as that of the Preston Woolen Mills was acquired by purchase in 1832 by one Charles Wiffler, a German blacksmith, who conceived the idea of starting a wool carding shop, but being unable to carry out that idea, he sold the premises, in 1842, to one Hiram Kinsman, who built a frame two story building in which he carried on wool carding for the farmers in the vicinity. Woolen mills, as we know them, were unknown here in those early days. The farmer brought his wool to the carding mill, had it carded, the carder deducting a usual percentage of the wool for his work, and the farmer took home his carded wool. His wife and daughters spun it into yarn and then this yarn was woven into homespun by the weaver who wove by hand loom, the cotton warp being bought in the stores. Mr. Robert Hunt, upon seeing the water power and premises, at once discovered a mine of wealth latent there which only required energy, tact and means to develop. He purchased the premises from Mr. Kinsman in 1845, and set to work with that earnestness, perseverance and forethought which were his peculiar characteristics. The old frame building proved too small, a stone factory was erected and to this were gradually additions and numerous outer buildings. Mr. Hunt's wealth increased with the increase of his premises. A most disastrous fire consumed the whole interior of the main building, but phoenix-like there soon arose from its ashes a large building, filled with the most improved machinery. In 1855 'Mr. Andrew Elliott of Galt became a partner of 'Mr. Hunt and the premises and business were considerably enlarged.

______________________

In the year 1832, Carl Wiffler was running a Blacksmith shop on the site of the Pattinson Mill at Preston and he sold his land to one Kinsman of Galt in 1842. Meantime on the 11th day of September, 1840, by deed registered as number 312 he purchased from Michael Bergey, then of the Township of Puslinch, three parcels of land containing together two acres and one road. One of these parcels containing one-half acre, having a frontage on Queen Street of 132 feet and a depth back southerly there from of 165 feet was located immediately to the east of the James Sault house property, then owned by John George Allendorf.

A second parcel containing one acre had likewise a frontage on the south side of Queen Street of 132 feet and it extended back south to a depth of three hundred and thirty feet, and it lay immediately east of the half-acre lot. After selling out in Preston to Kinsman Mr. Carl Wiffler came here and probably in the year 1843 built a blacksmith shop with dwelling above on the one-acre parcel. This building, legend has it, was later converted into the Fire Hall shown on some of the ancient pictures of Queen Street.

On December 1 st, 1845, by deed number 445, Wiffler sold the half-acre lot to Robert Forbes and your attention is called to the description in it "Being composed of a Village Lot in New Hope near the Blacksmith Shop on the south side of Queen Street". A man named George Steffler comes somehow into the picture in con-nection with this one-acre parcel. It may be that he was a blacksmith operating this blacksmith shop subsequent to Wiffler's demise, presumably as tenant of the estate.

39286 Mrs. Wiffler, whose maiden name was Allemang, had three children; Charles who learned the Waggon Making trade, Catharine who married Gideon Ochs and Elizabeth who never married, but for many years worked as a seam-stress. By that I mean she went to a house where the Ladies had materials they wanted made up into dresses; and her work was, in the main, with the top notch families in the district hereabouts. She made, for instance, most of the gowns for the daughters of Jacob Hespeler, and she kept little bits of pretty-much all the nice materials she worked with and years after when Minnie Ochs, her Niece, was building a crazy patch quilt, Aunt Lizzie brought her down a lot of these patches and went over them telling what dress this was from, that this other patch was of the dress that Miss Hespeler wore to someone's wedding, etc. All that sort of history. It must have made a fine afternoon of it for Minnie.

1861 finds young Charles Wiffler conducting a waggon shop on Queen Street on property owned by his step father, Joseph Oberholtzer, probably on the present D. W. & W. property which Mr. Oberholtzer then owned.

In 1862, Charles Wiffler and Joseph Oberholtzer appear as owners of an acre and a half of land on the easterly side of Cooper Street, south of Queen, where Wiffler built, I believe, the stone Blacksmith shop - certainly the Waggon shop which he operated until he died in 1865.

39292 Henry Wilbee was a son of George Wilbee and he was married before leaving England to Sarah Sanders. On the voyage out, on June 11, 1821, their daughter, Mary Asia, was born and the mother died at Capt. Smith's as
already mentioned. Henry Wilbee afterward married Mary Wood.

The farm that Henry Wilbee expected to own was part of Lot 3, on the 3rd concession, that was later known as the 'Blyth' farm, and his father George Wilbee had chosen part of Lot 3, on the 2nd Concession, that was afterward owned by George Fasken. The house in which Henry Wilbee lived was on the west side of the river road, on the Wolcott farm, and about two miles south from Elora. His father's house was on the east side of the road opposite. A small stream flowing from a spring crosses the road at this place and nearby is a cross, road that leads to a fording place on the Grand River. Their houses were on the side of the hill facing the south, and they lived here for some years, but there is nothing to mark the spot now.

Both father and son were carpenters, and, like his father, Henry Wilbee, had to leave his home to find employment at his trade. It was almost five years after coming to Pilkington that the City of Guelph was started by the Canada Company and he helped to complete some of the first buildings there and he also worked at Goderich. In 1833 Henry Wilbee was employed by Mr. Gilkison to build a saw mill at the Elora Falls. To serve as a shelter while doing this work he built the first log shanty west of the Grand River anywhere near Elora, which means that at this time there was not another habitation between this part of the Grand River and Lake Huron. Later, in 1839, he came to live in Elora in a house on the west corner of Victoria and Woolwich streets. One of his contracts was the carpenter work of the first English Church. He left Elora in 1856 and died at Dundas in March 1858 at the age of sixty-two. In his family there were: Mary Asia married Cushman Smith; Henry married Caroline Penfold and lived at Brussels, he was killed there by a falling beam; William was killed by a falling tree near Capt. Smith's; Henrietta died when young; George married Jane Penfold. He died at Doon in October 1886. (Mrs. Hiram Card, living in Elora, is a daughter); John married Bethany Cowil and lives at Grand View, near Brantford; Thomas married Elizabeth Swain, he died at Brantford; Sarah married Charles Moss and went to Flushing, Michigan; Frederick married Mary O'Neill, lives in Hamilton; Elizabeth married Thomas Turner; Edwin M. lives in Piqua, Ohio; and Leonora died young.

39293 "It was at Capt. Smith's, in 1821, that the Wilbee's, a family of English settlers going to the Pilkington Estate, found shelter. Some of them were sick with typhus fever and were here nursed back to health. During the voyage out, on a vessel called the "Asia," a baby girl had been born and she was called "Mary Asia." At Capt. Smith's the young mother died of the hardships of the voyage, leaving the baby girl to be nursed and cared for, for two years, by Capt. Smith's family. One of the sons was especially kind to the mitherless bairn. The others in the family teased him by saying she would be his wife some day, never thinking that it might be true, but again was truth strangers than fiction for Mary Asia Wilbee became Mrs. Cushman Smith.

39302 "A distinct gloom was cast over this community when word was received last Friday evening that Miss Audrey Wildfong had passed away that afternoon at Grace Hospital Toronto. To many who were not aware that her indisposition was so serious the news came as a shock. Miss Wildfong was a nurse in training at the above institution since September 1918. She contracted typhoid fever from a patient she was nursing about four weeks ago and while the attack was not considered serious at first the disease gradually overcame her until death resulted. Deceased was the eldest child of Mr. Nelson Wildfong of Centreville but had been reared in the home of her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. W.E. Wildfong to whom the blow is an exceedingly heavy one, more especially as she had passed beyond only an hour or two before Mr. Wildfong, answering a summons saying that she was not so well, hastened to her bedside."

"Miss Wildfong was only in her 21st year. She was earnestly devoted to her profession, in fact so wrapped up in her work that her progress was rapid and sure. While the people of her own town knew little of her professionally they did not know much of her as one who had grown up in their midst. She was the possessor of a singularly sweet and winning disposition, one of those bright and beautiful spirits who radiate sunshine all along life's pathway. She won her way easily to all hearts and her early demise brought sorrow to many hearts in Preston, even among those who knew her but casually. In Grace Hospital her natural sweetness of disposition had made her a great favorite, a fact very evident by the genuine display of sorrow on the part of the entire staff from the Superintendent down."

"The funeral took place on Monday afternoon. A service was held at the home of Mr. W.E. Wildfong at 11 A.M. and a public service at the Methodist church, of which deceased was a consistent member, at 2: 30 P.M. Rev. C.D. Draper conducted both services assisted by Rev. A.L. Terryberry of Toronto, but a former pastor here. Mr. Terryberry spoke very feelingly of the deceased whom he had visited frequently during her fatal illness. The esteem in which she was held was well evidenced by the many and beautiful floral offerings. The came from: the Board of Governors of Grace Hospital, the nurses in training, the medical staff, Miss Rowan, Superintendent of the hospital; Miss MacLennan, her special nurse; the Methodist church, the Men's Bible Class, Prof. Hubuer of Toronto and twenty others as tributes from college and other personal friends."

"The staff of Grace Hospital was represented by Miss Ruth Clarke of Galt and Miss Ruby Mounce both nurses in training. Deceased is survived by her father, Mr. Nelson Wildfong, one sister, Luella, and two brothers, Irvin and Teddy. Her mother pre-deceased her over two years ago."

39329 Jacob Wildfong, "was born in 1753. After he had attained the age of twenty years he was married to Susannah Ruth. During the latter part of the last century when the question of slavery was brought up and sanctioned by the state government, these Moravians were strenuously opposed to the measure, so much so that numbers of them left the state (North Carolina) and moved to Pennsylvania, "the Quaker State", while others left some years later after the independence of the thirteen colonies was declared. Among the latter number was old Jacob Wildfong, the pioneer settler (of that name) in this country. About the year 1796 he, with his wife and family of three or four children, moved north to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where he resided for six years, then he, in company with others, moved to Canada in 1802 and settled in Waterloo County, Ontario, on the west band of the Grand River a little below the Toll Bridge, on the farm now owned by Ferdinand Miller. Here he resided until his son, Jonas, took possession of the farm then he moved a little west of what is now Strasburg where he died probably as early as 1830. His family consisted of seven children"

Oscar Wile is keeping up the Wile tradit ion as a builder and contractor.

From the Kitchener-Waterloo Record of July 20, 1968

"When Kitchener contractor Oscar Wiles and his wife head for the west coast on a motor holiday, they'll make a point of spending a few days in Edmonton.

The oil capital stop will bring back memories of the time 57 years so when Mr .Wiles heeded the cry of "go west young man, go west."

It was in 1911 when 18 year old Oscar heard of big money to be made in Edmonton as a carpenter or contractor. His father, Isaac Wiles, a carpenter-contractor, was paying Oscar 17 1/2 cents an hour. The pay out west was three times that figure, he was told .

Mr. Wiles went into partnership in Edmonton as a house finisher with an Elmira man for four months and then built cupboards and stairways for an Edmonton house developer.

His pay was 55 cents an hour. He had indeed hit "pay dirt" in the oil capital . But the big money was short lived. His father pleaded with him in daily letters to come home as his foreman had quit. Oscar came home.

He helped build about 10 homes during his 55-cents-an-hour era. The Wiles will try to find them "for sentimental reasons".

In 1927 Mr. Wiles started his own contracting firm and since then his company has built dozens of buildings in this area. They include schools, churches and factory additions.

Mr. Wiles is the Twin Cities' oldest active contractor. As president o f Oscar Wiles and Sons Ltd ., he still signs all the cheques and looks after detail at his office in his home, 5 Maurice Street, Kitchener.

His five sons, however, now look after the ''heavy work" Arthur is vice-president; Donald is supervisor; Norman is an estimator; Peter is general foreman and Richard is an estimator and superrvisor.

The president's wife, Marie is secretary treasurer"

39391 Anton Wilhelm, who died on Saturday, was accompanied by many friends to his last resting place on Tuesday, his 88th birthday.

Mr. Anton Wilhelm, an upright, honest man of good heart was one of the first settlers in this area. The same was born on April 2, 1813 in upper Baden and came to Amerika in 1833 and married Johanna Weber, who came from the same area of Germany, in 1835 in Buffalo N.Y, then moved to Dundas, and later settling down on his place by Williamsburg, on the road between Strasburg and Mannheim where he lived until his death. He lost his true conscientious German spouse through death in 1879 and since then was cared for by his only son Mr. Anton Wilhelm Jr., his spouse and children.

The departed left behind one son, 2 daughters, 22 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren. He was predeceased by 2 sons, 2 daughters, 3 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. A solemn ceremony and heart rendering eulogy was offerred by Rev. B. Wm. Kloepfer prior to his burial at the Catholic cemetery where his earthly remains were carried by 6 of his grandchildren and lowered into the grave.

To the founders of this "Journal" of which he was one of the first subscribers, he was a loving and good friend, to the sons the founders and publishers of this leaflet, likewise his treasured friendliness came to pass. The thought to have had a father and grandfather whose many good qualities and respected ways were loved by all sensitive persons, is a great consolation for the great numbers left behind.

__________________________________


In the person of the late Anton Wilhelm, who died on Saturday and who, on Tuesday, his 88th birthday, was accompanied by many to his final resting place, this area has lost one of the first settlers, and a generally beloved, good-hearted, worthy man.
He was born April 2, 1813 in the Upper Baden area, came to America in 1833; he married in 1835 in Buffalo, N.Y., Johanna Weber, who came from the same area in Germany and then moved to Dundas. In 1844, he settled near Williamsburg, on the road between Strassburg and Mannheim, where he lived until his death. He lost his attentive, loyal German wife to death in 1879 and since that time, he has enjoyed the loyal care of his only son, Mr. Anton Wilhelm Jr. and the latter's wife and children.

The deceased is survived by a son and 2 daughters; in addition, he has 22 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. Two sons and two daughters, as well as 3 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren predeceased him.

His burial, preceded by a solemn requiem mass and a heartfelt address on the virtues of the departed by the Very Reverend Father Wm. Klöpfer, took place in the Catholic cemetery here, where his earthly remains were transported and lowered into the grave by six of his grandchildren.

To the founders of the "Journal" (among whom he was one of the first subscribers) he was a dear, good friend, and to whose sons (the present publishers of this paper), he has remained a worthy friend. The thought, to have had a father and a grandfather whom all well-meaning people respect and love, because of his many good qualities, must certainly be a great consolation to his numerous survivors.

One of Hanover's early residents passed away last Saturday evening at 6: 15 o'clock in the person of Mrs. John Hertel Sr. She had attained the ripe old age of 81 years 11 months and 22 days.

Following so closely on that of her husband, the shock of whose demise the family had scarcely recovered from, it has completely prostrated them, As far as can be learned the cause of death was as follows:- -Mrs. Klotz and her daughters, Mrs. Mylius (with her children) and Miss Klotz, and Mrs. Stehle had been sitting in the garden chatting. Mrs. Mylius left about 8 o'clock for home. Shortly afterwards Mrs. Klotz complained that she felt chilly, and went to the house. Sy this time it was quite dark, and even darker in the house as the lamps were not yet lit. It is supposed Mrs. Klotz must have noticd the door was open leading to the hail, but going on, opened the cellar door in mistake, and fell head foremost down the stairs. Miss Klotz came immediately after her, and went to Mrs. Klotz's assistance at once and found her unconscious at the bottom of the stair. Help was at once summoned and medical men sent for, but despite all that could be done for her, the injured lady never regained consciousness, passing away about 11 o'clock. It is supposed that in falling the side of her head struck the steps, from there she alighted on her head on the cellar floor, death beeing attributed to concussion of the brain. For some years past Mrs. Klotz has not enjoyed good health, but during the last few months she has been much better, and even during her husband's illness, she bore up bravely. The deceased lady was universally esteemed by all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. An earnest and loving helpmate to her husband during their fifty years of married life; a fond mother, and an earnest Christian gentle woman, we can safely say that all within sound of the doleful chiming of the church bell, felt as if they had lost a personal friend when they realized that Mrs. Klotz was no more. The funeral took place on Friday Afternoon.

The bosom where I oft have lain,

'Tit still in death! 'tie senseless clay.
How many were the silent prayers
My mother offered up for me,
How many were the bitter cares
She felt when none but God could see,
Well, she is gone, and now in heaven,
She sings his praise, who died for her,
And in her hand a harp is given,
And she's a heavenly worshiper.
And let me choose the path she chose,
And her I soon again may see.
Beyond this world of sin and woes
With Jesus in Eternity.

Situated four miles east of Highway 23 on Concessions 8 and 9 of Wallace and Maryborough Townships, Trecastle had a lot more to recommend it than just the local bootleggers. The hamlet ... was established around the late 1850s. Amsey Wilken has memories of Trecastle being the first place he ever bought smoking tobacco. Although he wasn't a native of Trecastle he spent many a good time there while visiting his maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Metz. His mother was the former Annie Metz who married John R. Wilekn and moved to the Elmira area.

Elmira was shocked to hear of the death of one of her esteemed daughters in the person of Emma Wilken, the beloved wife of William Rudow.

On Dec.18, she complained of pains in her sides which developed into pleurisy, and on the third day she took a turn for the worse when double pneumonia set in. She succumbed to her sickness on Friday morning at 4: 30. The late Mrs. Rudow whose maiden name was Emma Wilken was born in 1892 in Waterloo Township. Later they moved to Floradale and after a few years to Elmira where she attended school. In 1916 she was married to William Rudow and to them were born three children, namely Kathleen, aged 6; Karl age 4, and Marguerite, age 16 months. There also survive her: her father, John R. Wilken; brothers, Amasa, Irvin (Wallace Tp), Russell, Ralph, and also one sister, Cora, who are at home. The funeral which was largely attended was held on December 25 (Christmas Day), at 2: 30 at St. James Lutheran Church. Burial was in St. James Cemetery.

39450 WILKIE - On the 30th of October, 1901, in Grand Rapids, Mich., Abram Wilkie, son of August Wilkie, of Bloomingdale, Waterloo Co., Ont. He had been working in Grand Rapids for about two years. In leaving the street car on his way to dinner, the day being very rainy and cold, he pulled his cap down to protect his face and started around the rear of the car to cross the street. A car coming along from the opposite direction on the other track just then, caught him just as he stepped on the other track and killed him instantly. The remains were brought to the home of his parents and buried at the Cressman M.H., Breslau, on the 3d of November, where services were conducted in the German language by Solomon Gehman, assisted by the U.B. minister. A large concourse of people assemble to sympathize with the bereaved young wife and the parents and friends of the deceased. He had accepted Christ nearly a year before his death and was an earnest worker for the Lord. His sudden death is a loud call to young and old to prepare for the coming of the Son of Man who may come at an hour that we think not.

39452 WILKIE, Dennis One of the hardest things in life is writing an obituary for someone you really loved. Dennis passed away at Missinaibi Provincial Park on Saturday, August 13, 2016, doing what he loved. Camping, fishing (of which he had one of the best days ever), campfires, fish fries and of course the odd beverage. We will all miss him; his wife Barb (hard to get good help nowadays) and best friend; his son Darren and his wife Karen and his daughter Paula, and of course his two favourite grandchildren, Ethan who was his fishing buddy and apprentice at Missinaibi, and Cailyn, his crib partner - yes he did let her win some games.

Oh how we will miss the funny stories and "happenings" that occurred during these times; life will never be the same. Dennis was a big Toronto Blue Jay fan, and never missed a game (on the radio of course). His armchair coaching will really be missed. Thank you to Ethan for being there with me, also Deb, Bruce, Logan, Devon and Kiera, without you it would have been a tougher time. Thank you to Logan and Kiera for performing CPR on Uncle Dennis, I know it was rough on both of you, but he would have been happy knowing you were there for him. To Wayne and Carol, Robert and Sue, Tina and Phil, Remy and Lorraine, your friendship and help meant more than you can know. Also to the park staff, Tony and Jeff, and the two OPP officers that stayed until the end, Constable Arsenault and Constable Lane, you guys were amazing. Thank you too to Ingo for being there. A big thank you to Darren, Karen and Paula, Ethan and Cailyn, without family it would have been even harder. There will be a "happy time" held for Dennis at the Elmira Legion, 11 First St. E., Elmira, on Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 4 to 9 p.m. Wear your best camp or fishing clothes in Dennis's honour, bring along your funny stories and remembrances.

Was Alone at the time That Accident Occurred

John Wilkie, 54 years of age, residing at 147 1_th street west, was almost instantly killed on Wednesday night when he fell into the hold of the barge Michigan, owned by the John Harrison & Sons Co., Limited as she was tied up at a coal dock on the west side of the harbor. He was so terribly injured that he passed away about 15 minutes after he had been taken to the General and Marin hospital, an did not regain consciousness.

The unfortunate man, who was employed as one of the engineers on the barge has assisted in loading some of the coal, and had been operating the crane, and at the conclusion of his work had come down to the deck of the boat from the engine room.

Just what caused him to fall is unknown. Mr. A. Mackie, who was the second crane man, missed him after he had come down and who found him in the hold of the barge. He at once secured assistance, Dr. Gaviller was called and immediately ordered the injured man removed to the hospital. The ambulance was secured and he was hurried away, but it was apparent from the first that there was no hope of recovery, as the man's head was in a terrible condition, the skull being fractured and part of it was almost pulp.

The late Mr. Wilkie was a native of Bruce county, and was born in the township of Culross on December 31, 1875. He was the son of the late Mr. And Mrs. William Wilkie. He was married on August 28th, 1901 to Miss Bessie McBeath of Skipness and was employed for of 16 years at Shallow Lake, where he worked at the cement works and later spent seven years at Hepworth and four years at Park Head. He came to Owen Sound in October last and assisted in fitting up the barge Michigan which had been purchased by John Harrison and Sons Co. Limited. He was considered an efficient and faithful workman, and was well liked by his associates on the boat.

He is survived by his wife and a family of seven children. Mrs. Will Currie of Park Head; Mrs. Stanley Buckton of Hepworth; Meville, Teena, John, Lillian and Irene at home. He also leaves two brothers, Joseph, Shallow Lake, Erse? Big Valley, Alberta and two sister Mrs. Goldwin Cherry of Ward, Nipissing district and Mrs. Frank Wilson also of Ward.

39465 Sad Death in Galt

I t is with feelings of the deepest regret, that we this week announce the lamentable death of Mr. Stephen Wilkins, so long and favorably known as a prominent business man in the town. The circumstances attending this death are of the most painful nature, and such as to cause the widest sympathy for the family and friends of the deceased. It was only in our last issue that we gave the particulars of the destructive fire in Mr. Wilkins' establishment on the preceding Sabbath evening and little we thought as we wrote the particulars of the fire, that we would this week be called upon to record Mr. Wilkins' sad death. But so it is.

For a year or so past Mr. Wilkins' health has been anything but good, and it was felt by his friends that he had failed mentally as well as physically. He was perfectly able, however, to conduct his business in a satisfactory manner and of late, in fact, had been thought to be improving. The occurrence of the fire in his establishment however, seemed to excite him very much, particularly at first; but as soon as the appraisers commenced to ascertain the damage to the stock, he joined will them in the work, and appeared more reconciled to his, loss. He continued so at work till it ceased on Friday evening, when he went to his residence, Ker street, retiring to bed shortly after 9 o'clock. In the morning Mrs. Wilkin found it difficult to awaken him but at length succeeded in doing so, she was horrified by his telling her that on retiring to bed taken an ounce of laudanum, and that taking it he had thrown the bottle out of the window. She immediately sent for Dr. Philips, and at that time no serious results were anticipated. As Dr. Philip had to leave town for some time, he requested Dr. Vardon to look after his patient, and upon the latter visiting him during the forenoon he found him lying in his bed, with a deathly palor on his face. Taking hint by the shoulder, the Dr. roused him sufficiently to enable him to speak; but on turning down the bed clothes he found the bed soaked with blood, which was still flowing from several wounds in the body. Upon taking him what had stabbed himself with, the unfortunate man showed the Dr. a small pocket-knife which was still clutched in his right hand, Everything was done that was possible under the circumstances; but about 1 o'clock Mr. Wilkins relapsed into a state of insensibility, from which he never recovered, breathing his last about 8 o'clock in the evening. Mr. Wilkins was in the 40th year of his ago, and leaves a wife and seven children to mourn his untimely death.

An inquest was held on Sunday before Dr. Vardon and a competent jury, when the evidence bore out the facts as here given. A post mortem examination was held, when it was found that the ventricle of the heart had been penetrated in two places by the knife. The verdict, returned was to the effect that the deceased came to his death by his own hands, while laboring under mental depression. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, and was largely attended, both by citizens and by members of the Oddfellows and Foresters Societies the bands playing the "dead march" as the cortege passed through the streets.

39487 Matthew Astor Wilks was buried in the Astor vault in St. James Churchyard, Hyde Park, NY. In Sylvia's next to last will, dated 1939, she left $20,000 to St. James Church, "for the upkeep and maintenance of the burial vault of Matthew Wilks, and of the plot in which it is located." Admittedly, this was not her husband, but it is a large vault, and I assumed that the reason she left this money to St. James was because her husband was buried there also.

39489 GEORGE WILLARD, GIVES A HISTORY OF UNITED BRETHREN CHURCH AT SHEFFIELD AND OF BEVERLY TP.

Church Founded Over 100 Years Ago - His Father Gave Land on Which Pleasant Grove School Stands-Recalls Names of Many of Pioneers of District-Has Lived in Galt 40 Years.

The following letter has been received from George Willard, Oak Street:

Editor:

I would like to say a little about the United Brethren Church, of Sheffield, and some of the early settlers. The Rev. John A. Cornell was founder of the United Brethren church over one hundred years ago, about the time my parents came to this country. They took up land and settled two miles south of Sheffield known as the Willard settlement or Pleasant Grove.

My father gave the land for the school which is Pleasant Grove School. That was about a century ago. There are none of the first or second generation living and very few of the third. I left Beverly over 40 years ago and came to Galt and have resided here since. There are six generations of the Willards of which Edward Willard, son of A.E. Willard, is the fifth generation. There are just three of the Willards left on the old homestead, Samuel and his two sisters..

Received $1 Month

Just to give you an idea of the wages of those days, I was caretaker of the school when a boy. Wm. Cornell, also a minister, son of the late Rev. John A. Cornell and father of the late John A. Cornell, of Branchton, was trustee. I opened the school, lit fires, swept, dusted, carried water and locked up for the sum of $1. per month, good money in those days. I just thought of Wm Grills' letter in The Reporter of how cheap things were year ago. I have taken three dozen eggs to the store for a quarter, three pounds of butter for a quarter, but never remember chickens at five cents apiece.

What Pioneers Did

My father was the late James Willard. I often regret I had not taken more notice of what he told me of the early days and hardships they had to endure. Settling in a wilderness, they had to cut down the best of beech and maple and log it up and burn it to get a place to sew seed. I heard him say he teamed from Kitchener, then Berlin to Hamilton 85 years ago, down the Stone road, which is the Hamilton highway of today. He hauled sugar, flour, salt, beer, whiskey, the said whiskey being 24 cents a gallon. It has advanced in prince since then.
The first doctor I can remember was the late Dr. Lundy. I cannot remember the late Rev. John A. Cornell, but I mention a few of the United Brethren Ministers of my time: Reverands Bowman, Cornell, Ploman, Downey, Crowder, Clark, Bacus, Wait and Carstead.

Some of Old Settlers

Some of the old settlers whom I can remember were Willards, Cornells, Sagers, Humphreys, Flemings, Lawrasons, Heaths, Normans, Stutermans, Weavers, Cooleys, Mains, Rickers, Bond, Grummett, Smith, Keachies, Malcolms, Hoods, Bennets, McClures, McDonalds, Kellys, Moors, Clellands, Lambs, Grants, Lees, Sipes, Cosemoors, VanEverys, Moffats, McWhinneys, Hammonds, Wells, Babcocks, Greens, Tansleys, Hendersons, Clinks, Halls, Dales, Henrys, Morgans, Youngs, and Chambers.

The Church Case

Those were all in a radius of four miles and the large majority were the founder of the United Brethren Church of Sheffield. Why would the Methodists and a few of the Presbyterians do such a mean thing as to want the United Brethren church, when they had a good one of their own, and they go to law about it and win. I was surprised when I heard the decision of the judge. He could not have had the case made plain or he would not have favored the Union.

I cannot help but feel bad as it was the church I was brought up to and have never shifted. I took a trip through the States last fall and when in Cleveland, Ohio, I met a great grandson of the late Rev. John A. Connell of that city, and in my conversation with the minister, I partly arranged with him to come over this coming summer and preach a sermon in his great grandfather's church that was and should be yet.
So if he should come we will find a place for him if it should be on the street. This young minister is either a second or third cousin of George Henry, of Sheffield. The village of Sheffield in those days was a smart little place. It had two stores, two churches, a cheese factory, harness shop, shoe shop, blacksmith shop, wagon shop, and hotel. Today it has only one store.


There are lots who will read this, and who know what I say is right and are more capable than I am of giving a history of Beverly. I would mention Joseph Stauffer as one who could give a good history of Beverley, especially Sheffield as it was the place of his boyhood. Thanking you for this space in your paper. Other papers copy.

39490 H. Edward Willard

July 23, 1902-December 20, 1988

Harry Edward Willard was born in the family home on Shade Street in Galt, Ontario on July 23, 1902, the only child of Albert Edward Willard and his wife, Luey Elizabeth Ellen Walker.

A red-headed mischief only child, Edward got into his share of trouble early on, be it breaking a neighbour's window playing ball on the street instead of at the park; pushing over outhouses on Hallowe'en; lighting forbidden fireworks; or raiding a neighbour's apple orchard with a favourite cousin - each misdemeanour resulting in a good spanking from his father.

Edward's other early memories were riding the "ponies" belonging to his uncle's livery and cartage business near Soper Park; playing hooky from school; sledding down McNaughton Street Hill and being run over by a team of horses '96 the wagon went right over him; in his late teens going to Scott's Opera House known for shows which came to Galt before Detroit; and receiving a driver's licence at age 14 to drive his father's car. That would have been about 1916.

Edward did well in school, especially in mathematics, attending Central Public School and Galt Collegiate, but for only two years at the latter. School was given up because of eagerness to go into business with his father who had opened a house furnishing store in 1907 at 101 Main Street on the south side of that street in Galt. Albert Willard also had a dry goods business at #78 on the north side of the same street. In 1922 Edward's occupation was given as the manager of the dry goods store, which was closed sometime after 1923. About this time the family moved to a new home at 223 Main Street in Galt.

On May 30, 1923 Albert Willard and Edward Willard formed a partnership, A.E. Willard and Son, Ltd. at which time Edward took over the management of the furniture store. His father was semi-retired from then on but usually managed to "drop into the store" most days of the week. The business eventually was sold in 1960 to the T. Eaton Co. Ltd.

Edward was married in Windsor, Ontario to the former Doreen Hamlet on September 12, 1928. They moved into an addition which had been built on the back of his parents' home, 225 Main Street East in Galt, remaining there until September 1948 when they moved to a new home at 31 Barrie Street in Galt. Edward and Doreen had two children: Rosemary Ann (married Gordon Ambrose, September 10, 1955) and Gordon Edward (married to Patricia Kerr) in July, 21, 1956.

Family memories include travelling to visit furniture factories north of Galt, of which there were many, and also travelling to southern Quebec to furniture factories there. A memory of Rosemary and Gordon during World War II is being taught by their father how to handle a rifle (Gordon was good at it; Rosemary literally could not hit a barn door!). Coasting down hills in the family car to save gasoline was exciting. Also fondly remembered was a family trip to the Gaspe Peninsula in search of Restigouche Salmon, summer holidays at Port Elgin on Lake Huron, and family Christmases with our large Galt family. Good memories.

Galt was Edward's main concern after family. To illustrate his involvement with Galt, the following are organizations to which he belonged:

Boy Scouts Association (joined on July 16, 1915); the Young Men's Christian Association of Galt (YMCA) which he joined in September, 1915; Charter President of the Civic Service Club of Galt; member of the Galt Kiwanis Club; President of the Downtown Merchants Association of Galt; Campaign Manager of the Red Feather Campaign, Galt Section, in 1961; President of the Galt section of the Community Concert Association, 1964; Member of the Waterloo Boy Scouts Association; served on the Board of the Galt YMCA, the Planning Board, and the Galt Country Club Board; Chairman of the Galt committee for a three-year drive to provide expansion funds for Doon Pioneer Village (the objective was to raise $15,000 in Galt over three years); and a member of First United Church in Galt. Edward served as a Lieutenant in the Reserve of the Highland Light Infantry of Canada, during World War II, 1939-1945.

The Galt Evening Reporter, August 29, 1969, reported that the largest individual free donation of land in the history of the Grand River, a 1400' strip of West River Road lands, was made by Mr. and Mrs. H.E. Willard. On September 17, 1974 Willard Park was dedicated on the west side of Galt.

A busy man, dedicated to his family, his business, and his city, Edward had little time for leisure. However, he had time for Golf and Tuesday night poker with "the boys" and time for travel with his wife in his later years.

Edward Willard died in Cambridge Memorial Hospital on December 20, 1988; his wife, Doreen Hamlet Willard died on July 13, 1996 in Cambridge Memorial Hospital.

39508 One, Morgan Williams was a Photographer here in 1863; William Sauder in 1864; Henry Askew in the earlier eighties. Bonaparte Lake in the later years of that decade. These men used "Wet" Plates which they prepared themselves by coating a sheet of glass, cut to size, with sensitized gelatin. The Plate went wet into the camera and after the picture was taken the negative had to be developed promptly.

Mr. Williams carried on his business in rooms above William McBean's Grocery store on the site of Clifford Kreig's building. William Sauder, a man 30 years of age, remained here only a short time. It is unlikely that there are many examples of the work of Williams or Sauder now to be found.

Mr. Askew rented rooms from Mrs. Henry Sachs and there took individual photos. In addition to this gallery work he specialized in wedding, picnic and other group pictures. These pictures he sold afterwards chiefly to persons shown in them. This work often took him out of the Village and as he worked with wet plates which had to be prepared and then promptly used, he rigged up a covered waggon to contain a dark room, a work shop and storage for his equipment. This waggon was drawn by a span of light horses to "Location". When it was not in use he kept it in Mrs. Glick's Hotel shed.

DEATH OF AN OLD TOWNSMAN

The death is announced of Morgan Williams, at one time a well-known hotel-keeper in Galt, which took place in Hamilton Asylum on Saturday last. Mr. Williams left Galt some years ago to reside in Detroit; but about two years ago he returned to town and became the landlord of the Galt Hotel. It was soon evident to his old friends, however, that his mind had completely failed; and as he became violent in the course of time it was found necessary to put him under restraint. He was accordingly taken to Berlin, from whence he was afterwards removed to the Hamilton Asylum. Poor Morgan! Light hearted and genial in the old days when he was himself, his friends will remember and regret him for what he was rather than what he became.

At the 44th Annual Conference of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Canada in June 1867, Waterloo was described as a German Mission in the Hamilton District with Rev. J. Schescher as its pastor. By 1870 mention of the Waterloo German Mission was missing from the Conference Minutes.
The first regular Methodist services in Waterloo were held on Sunday afternoons in the Town Hall until the former United Brethren in Christ Church on King Street South was purchased in the Fall of 1879 for $675; $575 was paid in cash and the balance of $100 was to be paid in two years time, with interest. This frame church was used until 1890. Purchase of a parsonage had been approved the previous year, on May 21, at the Annual Meeting of the Guelph Conference, Galt District of the Methodist Church. The congregation, with a membership of 56, was still considered a Mission at that time. Early ministers were William Savage (1883), A.A. Bowers (1884), Richard W. Williams (1887-1894), and John Scott (1895).
At the Annual Meeting of the Galt District, Guelph Conference of the Methodist Church, on May 20, 1890, the congregation was given permission to sell their old church and apply the proceeds to build a new church. The cornerstone laying for this church, at the corner of King and William Streets, was on Monday, May 26, 1890. (The church's report to the 1891 Annual Meeting of the Methodist Church was that "a new brick church has been built for about $8,000.") The congregation joined with the majority of the members of St. Paul's Presbyterian Church in 1925 to form First United Church, Waterloo; the vote was 106-99 in favour of union. The joint congregation, with the name of First United Church, worshipped in the former St. James Methodist church.1

39516 SAMUEL JAMES WILLIAMS.

Samuel James Williams, who has taken a foremost stand in the line of manufacturing through the provision which he has made for the welfare and comfort of his employees, is numbered to-day among the representative and leading residents of Berlin. He was born March 13, 1853, in Madison, Indiana, his parents being Alexander William and Jane (Lee) Williams, natives of Wales and of Scotland respectively. They settled in Covington, Kentucky, in 1835, and subsequently became residents of Madison, Indiana. The father was a machinist by trade and possessed much mechanical ingenuity, becoming the inventor of a device for turning wooden bowls out of the solid block. He died in 1894 at the venerable age of eighty-three years and is still survived by his widow, who makes her home with her son, Samuel J., and has now reached the advanced age of ninety-one years.

At the usual age Samuel J. Williams entered the public schools of his native town, wherein he continued his studies to the age of seventeen. He then began learning more difficult lessons in the school of experience. Going to New York he was connected with mercantile pursuits there until 1874, after which he traveled as salesman until October, 1881, in which year the firm of Williams, Greene & Rome was organized and established business at Toronto in the manufacture of shirts, collars and cuffs. In 1886 the business was incorporated under the name of the Williams, Greene & Rome Com- pany with Mr. Williams as president and general manager. The plant removed from Toronto to Berlin in 1886. The enterprise has proved successful from the beginning and its steady and substantial growth has made .this the largest business of the character in the Dominion. They employ about five hundred operatives in the factory and the trade extends throughout Canada from the Atlantic to the Pacific. The house is represented on the road by fourteen traveling salesmen and the output is being continually increased to meet the demands of the patronage. The plant is finely equipped with the latest and most modern improved machinery. The buildings cover four acres with athletic grounds adjoining, in which the employees participate in all outdoor sports. In connection there is a club house for male employees, in which have been installed a system of hot and cold baths and similar quarters have also been provided for the girls known as the rest room. In addition the employees have a sick benefit society and also what is called a flower fund. A suitable dining room is provided, also rooms have been supplied for making changes in wearing apparel, while every possible attention is given to the arrangements for sanitation and lighting. Among the employees has been organized a literary society and a dramatic society, the latter presenting plays several times a year. The work in the factory is under the supervision of an executive committee composed of the heads of the different departments, comprising six men and six women, who meet twice a week as a managing board. The work continues for nine hours a day and for five and a half days per week, the employees receiving a weekly half holiday in addition to Sunday. The Williams, Greene & Rome Company have indeed taken an advanced step in their treatment of their employees. Were such consideration and intelligence shown in other factories the question of labor and capital would be forever settled. The employees feel that they have a personal interest in the business and recognize the fact that faithful and competent service means advancement as opportunity offers. Good living wages are paid and it is no hardship to work in a place where a spirit of kindliness and consideration prevails, the employers showing a personal and individual interest in the welfare of those under their supervision. Such a course might be profitably followed by others and the factory at Berlin may well serve as an example.

Mr. Williams is also interested in business enterprises aside from the manufactory. He was one of the promoters of the Ontario Sugar Company, which is one of the most extensive industrial institutions of the country and of which he served as managing director for two years. He is equally interested in the welfare and progress of his city and for ten years has done effective and valuable service in its behalf as a member of the city council, president Board of Trade for two years, and one of the chief workers in securing municipal ownership of the water works and electric light and gas plants.

In 1880 Mr. Williams was married to Miss Sarah M. Freeman, of New York City, a daughter of the late Solomon Freeman. They have two daughters, Elinor and Esther. Mr. Williams is a believer in Christian Science and an active worker in the church. In politics he is a Conservative, but has always declined political preferment. It is only in local office that he has consented to serve, recognizing in this a matter of individual obligation and duty. He is content to do his public service as a private citizen and to labor for the welfare of his fellowmen through business interests. His career has been a notably successful one and stands in incontrovertible proof of the fact that humanitarianism, honesty and prosperity are not antagonistic forces.

39520 David Williamson with his wife Sarah Lynch, came to Manitou lin Island (Ontario, Canada) in 1880, from the Ayr district in North Dumfries Township of Southern Ontario. With them was their family of three boys, James,William and David - a babe in arms. David Sr. was a son of James Williamson and his wife Anne Calder who came to Canada from Scotland an d may have originally settled in Caledonia.

When David and Sarah embarked from Owen Sound, they landed at Manitowaning and were driven by cart to Van Zant's Landing. From there they went by boat across Lake Manitou, to Lehman's Landing - where Sid Cox presently lives. By then Sarah would have liked a cup of tea but none was forth coming. They then walked - probably the forest trail about 3 miles to John Caddel's house on Lake Mindemoya. Mrs. Caddel was David's sister. Sarah carried the baby, David, in her arms all the way.

It is known that they lived in a log cabin on what is now Jack Seabrook's farm and Andrew was born there in 1883, also probably Walter, Mary and Harry.

In 1892 they purchased from Frank and Elizabeth Wagg, the Colin Wagg farm and the Williamson family still owns this farm. Harold and Peter run the farm now.

This settlement was known then as Hopetown and was the site of the first fall fair in 1883 in Mindemoya. For many years the Department of Agriculture used part of the farm as an Experimental Station under the care of Peter and Walter Williamson. David was a councillor for Canarvan Township and Peter served as Councillor and then Reeve from 1949-1959 with another year as Councillor 1965-1966.

His son Harry was in from Alberta and the family had planned to attend a fair. To celebrate the occasion, David went into his cellar to get some of his homemade wine. He opened one of the bottles and sipped to see if it was ready for consumption. The bottle that he chose in that dark cellar was formaldehyde that resulted in his death.

James Williamson. Sr's. Death

Jas. Williamson, Sr., one of the longest and best known residents of North Dumfries, died at his late residence in Reidsville, on, the afternoon of Oct. 26th, In his 81st year. The deceased had not enjoyed the best of health these last few years, the malady from which he suffered being dropsy, though not taken down by it until these last few months, during which time he gradually sank, until his death, passing peacefully; away. The late James Williamson was a native of Greenock, Ayrshire, Scotland. He came to this country In 1834, landed at Quebec, where he remained for two years. From there he journeyed up the St. Lawrence to Kingston and onward up the lake to Toronto and Hamilton. Inquiring for work on his way, but finding none he started inland and reached Cayuga and Caledonia, which were but saw mills at that time, but still meet with the same result. He started for Galt and obtained work in what was then known as the Galt Cut, in which he labored from start to finish. He was present at Galt's first Agricultural Fair, which was held below the lower bridge. Here he met one Mr. Baird, who engaged him to do some chopping of heavy timber, though unused with an axe he soon became an expert woodsman and many were the sturdy oaks that fell before his keen blade. A year or so later he became a farmer on his own account and about this time he was married to Annie Calder, the youngest daughter of James Calder, who survives him. He leaves a family of eleven, of which seven are living. They are: James, David, Mrs. George Hodgson and Mrs. Geo. McDonald, on the Manitoulin Island and Andrew, Mrs. Andrew Nichol and Mrs. Walter Rutherford, of North Dumfries. The deceased was a successful farmer, living almost continuously with-in a mile and a half of Ayr. He took a great interest in political matters, being a pronounced Reformer. In religion he was a Presbyterian. He took a great delight in reading and repeating the Psalms and was well versed In Scottish history and a great lover of Burn's poems. He was a man of sterling Integrity and straight forwardness In business matters and had a wide circle of intimate friends. His wife will have the sympathy of the community in her her bereavement. The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon, at 10 o'clock, from his late residence In Cedar Creek, to the Cedar Greek cemetery.

39525 We do not know when or where he died. He is rumored to have fought in the Civil War and went to the States to collect a pension. Although he did cross the border in 1916, he indicated that he was in the States 1862-1864 living at "various places" without a mention of military service. I think I found him in the 1920 census for Waycross, Ware, Georgia; however, in this census he lists that his parents were born in Canada and not Scotland where they were born. The original family tree states that his last known residence was Wayside, Georgia. When he crossed, he listed his destination as Crystal Springs, Florida.

Demise of Mr. & Mrs. Walter Rutherford - Married About 50 Years, and In Death They Were Not Long Divided

There passed away within a week of each other an aged couple in the persons of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Rutherford, lot 36 con. 10, North Dumfries, who had lived together for half a century and in death were not long divided. Mrs. Rutherford was the first to cross into the great unknown, her death occurring on Tuesday Jan. 4th, the husband, following on Monday, Jan. 10th. Both had attained a good age, the wife being in her 76th year and Mr. Rutherford in his 84th. Theirs had been the simple, unostentatious life, and the attachment which existed between them was evidence of years of tender companionship. Mrs. Rutherford was Williamson, her birth place being Oneida Township. The husband was born at Cheviot Hills, Scotland, and came to Canada at the age of 8. He had been about 30 years on the farm on which he died. He was the last close of kin on his side of the house. Both were members of Knox United Church, Ayr, and in politics were Conservative. The family comprises four daughters and two sons, viz.: Mrs. A. Dryden, Galt; Mrs. G. Wallace, and Mrs. W. Little, North Dumfries; Elizabeth at home; Robert and James at home.

39534 "Willis Way" a small Street in downtown Waterloo, Ontario was named in his honour.

_______________

Uptown Waterloo is well into its transformation (2010), replacing a derelict mall stub and its parking lot and redeveloping the western side of King Street. Erin and I have been through the area a few times and while the construction is a pain to navigate around, we're already seeing substantial improvements. Nowhere is this most apparent in the sudden emergence of a street life for Willis Way. Willis Way was previously a short, one-block street running beside a parking garage, offering very little for the pedestrian save for a quicker journey to Waterloo's City Hall.

39536 Death of George Willison

This week we are called upon to report the passing of an old Ayr boy in the person of George Willison, which event occurred at Hamilton Saturday, Dec 7, after a long illness. The deceased, who had attained his 38th year, was born in Ayr and served an apprenticeship with his father as a merchant tailor, afterward conducting the business himself for some years. "Pete", as he was familiarly known among his associates, was a genial, whole-souled fellow and made many friends, all of whom will sincerely regret to learn of his long-time poor health and early demise. He left here about 9 or 10 year ago and had since resided in Hamilton. Both father and mother (who also latterly lived in Hamilton) predeceased him and were interred in the Ayr cemetery where George's remains were also laid to rest on Friday. In politics he was a Reformer and in religion a Presbyterian. Several brothers and sisters reside in Hamilton.

39588 Passing of Mrs. John M. Hunt - Died, in Ayr, on Friday, Dec. 29th, 1922, at 4.30 o'clock p.m., Elizabeth Wilson, beloved wife of Mr. John W. Hunt, in her 76th year. The deceased was born on the Paris Road, South Dumfries coming to Ayr 40 years ago, and marrying a year later. Always a healthy, active woman, she experienced little trouble in the way of Illness until about six months ago, but from that time on dissolution was gradual and apparently inevitable. She was essentially a home-body, giving almost undivided attention to her household duties, and the making of a cheery, inviting home. As a neighbor she possessed unexcelled qualifications, especially in times of urgent need, thus winning the good will, esteem and respect of the community. In religion she was an adherent of the Presbyterian faith and abounded in good works. Besides her husband, she is survived by two brothers, Messrs. Elliott and Ogden Wilson, Detroit. The funeral took palce from her late residence, Northumberland street, n Monday afternoon, to the Ayr cemetery, the service being conducted by the Rev. J. J. Brown.

39589 WILSON, ERASTUS WILLIAM, businessman and officer; b. 1 July 1860 in Belleville, Upper Canada, son of James Wilson, an iron founder, and Mary Ann Dowser; m. 1887 Sara Etta L. Bricker of Berlin (Kitchener), Ont., and they had two sons and one daughter; d. 15 May 1922 in Montreal.

Erastus William Wilson received his early schooling in Belleville and then went on to secondary school in Oshawa. He chose to enter the business world rather than to attend the University of Toronto, where his application had been accepted.

Wilson moved to Montreal in 1882. Two years later he began working for the Manufacturers' Life Insurance Company [see George Gooderham*], and he would serve as manager of its Montreal office until 1911. After transferring then to the Canada Life Assurance Company, again as manager, he would later be in charge of its operations for the province of Quebec, and he continued in this position for the rest of his life. He would also be a director of Crown Trust Company as well as of Peter Lyall and Sons Construction Company.

In the course of his career, in addition to playing an effective role in the Montreal Board of Trade, Wilson was honoured by appointment as a member for life to the board of directors of the Montreal General Hospital and the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association. He also participated as a mason in the activities of Royal Victoria Lodge No.57, of which he would become a past master. In 1895 he rose to the position of provincial grand director of ceremonies. He belonged to several organizations in the Montreal region: the prestigious St James Club and Mount Royal Club, as well as the Forest and Stream Club. In 1917 the king made him a companion of the Order of St Michael and St George. He would live in Westmount and have a summer residence in Dorval.

Wilson's interest in the military life was evident from the time he came to Montreal in 1882, the year he enlisted as a private in the 3rd Battalion of Rifles (Victoria Rifles of Canada). Probably as a result of the quality of his performance and leadership, he rose through the ranks and obtained an officer's commission in January 1892. He assumed command of the regiment on 25 Sept. 1903, with the rank of lieutenant-colonel, and he relinquished it four years later.

Wilson was promoted colonel on 1 June 1914 with his appointment as acting commander of Military District No.4 (Montreal). When World War I broke out on 4 Aug. 1914, he joined the staff of the minister of militia and defence, Samuel Hughes, in Valcartier, and in October he accompanied him to England as his orderly officer. On 20 November he took command of Military District No.4. He was made a brigadier-general on 1 Sept. 1915. The following year he was given command of the camp at Valcartier, and in June he was promoted major-general. He resumed command of Military District No.4 in 1917. In the summer of 1918 he went to England and inspected Canadian troops on the front lines with Prime Minister Sir Robert Laird Borden* and the minister of the overseas military forces, Sir Albert Edward Kemp. He returned to Canada in August. When the war ended he asked to be relieved of his duties, but the military authorities persuaded him to remain at his post until the repatriation of the troops had been completed. He finally gave up command of Military District No.4 in October 1919. He died less than three years later, on 15 May 1922, at the age of 61. His two sons had both taken part in World War I. Erastus William had enlisted in the 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles Brigade and served on its headquarters staff. Bradley Alexander had also joined the Canadian Expeditionary Force.

Wilson made a success of his business and military careers. He even managed to attend to each of them during the war. This was no small task, and he accomplished it at the cost of his health. He performed his wartime duties to the satisfaction of the authorities, as his successive promotions demonstrate. As commander of District No.4, he played a significant role in recruitment. But like many other Montreal businessmen of the time, Wilson did not speak French, and his cultural and social world was an English-speaking one. His lack of sensitivity towards French Canadians hampered his work. He did indeed help Olivar Asselin* in recruiting the 163rd Infantry Battalion, as Rodolphe Lemieux* acknowledged in the House of Commons. On the other hand, on 12 July 1915 he supported the imposition of conscription.

Wilson tried, but failed, to create a strong, vigorous, and active civilian organization in the Montreal area for recruiting French Canadians. For this purpose he got in touch with three soldiers and with three French Canadian civilians, Senator Frédéric-Ligori Béïque*, Sir Alexander Lacoste, and especially Senator Raoul Dandurand*, but they were unable to respond favourably to his request for assistance. They did not find a francophone priest prepared to take charge of recruiting French-speaking volunteers, as Wilson had hoped, nor were they able to establish a fund similar to that of the Citizen's Recruiting League, an English-language organization set up to promote the recruitment of men willing to enlist in the anglophone battalions operating in Military District No.4. On 14 March 1916 Wilson appointed a Methodist clergyman, the Reverend Charles A. Williams, as chief recruiting agent for his district, claiming that he had been unable to find a French-speaking priest to hold this position. Nonetheless, he might have chosen an officer or a layman instead, as was done in Military District No.5, based at Quebec. Lemieux referred to this ill-considered appointment the following year in the course of the debates on the Military Service Act in the House of Commons. During his time as head of the camp at Valcartier, Wilson could not understand the difficult position of the French Canadian commanders of battalions, who were reduced to the role of recruiting officers. This incomprehension became clear in 1916 in his evaluation of the work of Lieutenant-Colonel Hercule Barré, commander of the 150th Infantry Battalion, and his criticism of Lieutenant-Colonel René-Arthur de La Bruère Girouard, commander of the 178th Infantry Battalion.

In spite of these reservations, it must be acknowledged that Erastus William Wilson was a staunch high-ranking officer, dedicated to the cause of the Canadian Expeditionary Force, and, as Lemieux said, in his daily life "a real gentleman."

39600 At the June assizes Joseph and Thomas Ferris were tried for the murder of Henry Wilson, in Wellesley, in March. A dispute had arisen respecting the ownership of a strip of land, and Wilson had obtained a writ of ejectment, and upon going to serve it, Joseph Ferris knocked him down and strangled him with his scarf, the other prisoner looking on while it was done. They were both sentenced to be hanged, when they made a full confession, and their sentence was commuted to imprisonment for life. At the Quarter Sessions in July, Judge Powell had the gratifying duty to inform the Grand Jury that, for the third time, there were no prisoners for trial, and only one case was brought before the magistrates in Guelph during the whole year.

\bWaterloo Historical Society Death Notices Collection - photocopies

_______________________

Death of Mr. James Wilson - It is with the most painful regret that we announce the death of this gentleman, which took place on Sunday morning last. At the time of our last issue his condition was looked upon as hopeful, but a change for the worse occurred that day and after a severe struggle he sand to his eternal rest.

Mr. Wilson was the eldest son of the late Robert Lundy Wilson, for so many years a leading representative man in this section. He inherited all his father's sterling uprightness of character and independence. His word was all that was required and in all his dealings with his neighbors and the public he was almost rigidly straightforward. A man of good abilities, largely self-taught, yet almost liberally educated and informed, to the various positions of trust which he at times occupied, he brought an earnest desire to thoroughly discharge his responsibility.

Mr. Wilson was twice married, his first wife having been Miss Jamieson, sister of Mrs. David Gibson, of North Dumfries, and his second, who now survives him, being Miss Mills, of Brantford Township. He had a numerous family, amongst whom are Mr. Daniel Wilson, and Mr. Alex Wilson, jr., of Galt, and Mr. James Wilson, of Chatham. Of the younger family, all, we believe, are still at home. Mr. Wilson had by industry achieved a very comfortable and valuable property.

His remains were interred on Tuesday in the little "Cedar Creek" cemetery, where lie his father and mother. His funeral was attended by a large number of his relatives and neighbors. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. J. A. R. Dickson, of the Central Presbyterian Church, of which Mr. Wilson has been a member and trustee since the union of the Presbyterian bodies in Canada.

39611 Todd's Milling Co., comprising the firm of Thomas Todd & Son and John Scott, off Hawthorn Street - Among the most prominent manufacturing industries in Galt must be mentioned the Todd Milling Co., which is one of the largest concerns in this line in this section of the county. They have recently purchased the old Stockwell Mills, which had been lying idle for several years; and to meet the more modern requirements of the present day, they entirely overhauled the building, and took out all the old machinery and runs of stone, and entirely refitted it, giving the contract for the work to the celebrated flour mill builders, Messrs. Goldie & McCulloch, of this town, the interior arrangements being made after plans by the foreman, Mr. J.E. Wilson, which are complete in every particular. The building occupied is a substantially-built structure of stone, five stories in height, with basement, engine and boiler house; also a large store house for grain, fitted up with nine large hopper bins, thus being enabled to keep each grade separate. There is an automatic weigher for weighing the grain before passing into the rolls. In the basement of the mill is located the main line of shafting, with pulleys, two sets of large wheat brush machines, one Galt improved separator, one Galt improved cockle machine, one Galt improved smutter; also elevators for handling screenings and wheat. On the first floor are four runs of stones, twenty-four pairs of Galt improved rolls, three Galt improved flour packers and three weight scales. On the second floor are one improved centrifugal bolt, two middlings dusters and five purifiers; also bins for middlings and flour. The third floor contains four purifiers, four centrifugal bolts, one Galt improved middlings duster and bins. On the fourth floor are four Wilson's patent dust collectors and three four-reel bolts. On the fifth floor are two two-reel bolt chests, one single-reel chest, and the elevator tops, with dust protectors on each. The mill was fitted up under the direction of the foreman, Mr. Wilson who has several patents on the machines for the prevention of fire by friction, etc. The capacity of the mill is 350 barrels per day. The head miller is Mr. Anthony Marshall, who was lately in charge of a leading flour mill in Blenheim, Ont., and is a gentleman well qualified for the position in every respect, having had an extended experience of many years. The proprietors, Thomas Todd & Son and John Scott, are gentlemen of unquestioned business ability, push and enterprise, and are highly and justly esteemed in the community. Messrs. Todd & Son will continue to carry on their general produce and commission business, in the exportation of flour, grain and provisions, as heretofore.

39612 LITTLE HUGH WILSON SINKS BEFORE HIS COM PANIONS EYES---A LONG SEARCH FOR THE BODY

On Tuesday afternoon, after school was out, Hugh J. Wilson, aged 11 years, a son of Mrs. Wilson, on the Stone Road and a pupil of the Separate School, accompanied by two other pupils, named Andrew and John Lannigan and a cousin from Palmerston, who is on a visit here, went up the river in the neighborhood of Mr. Melross’s residence (and near where the two Reid children were drowned about five years ago) for a bath. Wilson it seems was the first to get undressed and running into the water soon got beyond his depth, into a hole which is about 15 feet deep. He had told his companions that he was able to swim but this it seems was not the case, or he must have taken cramps for he had no sooner got into this deep hole, than he sank. His companions who were all young and could not render him any assistance, but cried very loudly for help to Neil Wilson and Fraser Hancock, who were bathing on the other side of the river. They at once came across in a row boat, but were too late to be of any service. Word was at once sent down to Henderson's boat house for help and men were busy all the evening and night, dragging the river in the vicinity of where the accident happened. It was well on to five o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, before the searchers were successful in bringing the body to land. Mr. Browngardner, one of the searchers while dragging in about the same spot where he sank, caught on to the body and succeeded in bringing it to the surface. It was at once removed to his grandfather's, Mr. John Johnstone's residence, on the Stone Road, from which place the funeral took place on Thursday afternoon, to the R. C. Cemetery.

39624 MRS. ROBERT ELTHERINGTON--The funeral of Mrs. Eltherington took place from the family residence, North Oxford [township], on Sunday afternoon and was largely attended. The services were conducted by the Salvation Army of which deceased had been a consistent member for some years, the SA band heading the cortege. The late Mrs. Eltherington was born at Newball, Yorkshire, England, on the 3rd of June, 1828, and consequently was in her 69th year. At the age of 52 she came to Canada with her husband and settled in North Oxford [township], where she has resided ever since. She was converted to God when 16 years of age and associated herself with the Primitive Methodist Church. Upon coming to this neighborhood, she joined the Bible Christian church, and at the time of the union became a member of the Charles Street Methodist Church. Some years later she withdrew from that church and joined the Salvation Army of which she was for a lengthened period and until her decease a consistent and valued member. About 2 years ago her heart began to trouble her, but she was able to attend to her regular duties until 6 weeks ago, when her ailment became more severe and she was confined to the house, passing away to her long rest on Friday. Deceased was a kind, loving mother and devoted wife, and was held in high respect by all. She will be deeply missed by those who are left to mourn her loss. Besides a husband, she leaves a grown up family of five children to mourn her loss. They are as follows: Robert and William of Hespeler; James of Ingersoll; Mrs. Philip Dales, Ingersoll; and Mrs. John Harrison, Dereham [township]. Two have passed away. Sarah, who died about 14 years ago and George about 12 years. The Chronicle extends deepest sympathy to the bereaved family

Nothing inferior is tolerated with Mr. Windell. He understands what it means to be possessed of first-class material. Having risen from the "ranks," Mr. Windell deserves much of that which he is achieving - success. He has a reputation, not only as a practical tailor, but as a business man and citizen. His garments turned out have that beauty and taste displayed that shows plainly that they have left the hands of a master mechanic. His store is in Dando's Block on Ainslie Street.

39666 KATHLEEN GRACE CAMPBELL
Matriarch, homemaker, bridge player, antique collector, reader. Born Oct. 15, 1912, in Berlin (Kitchener), Ont. Died Aug. 1 in Elora, Ont., of old age, aged 95.


ROSEMARY CAMPBELL submissions: lives@globeandmail.com November 24, 2008

Kathleen (Kay) Wing was the daughter of Wilford Earl Wing and Alma Eden Lewis. She attended high school in Kitchener, Ont., and White Plains, N.Y., where her father worked for Goodrich Rubber. She then went to the University of Toronto and Macdonald Institute in Guelph, Ont., where she met her future husband, Grant Campbell.

They married in 1933 and moved to his family farm just north of Moffat, Ont. Kay lived there for the next 50 years. Her first years after being thrown into the life of a farmer's wife were difficult. Once, she had to prepare a dinner for 25 threshers. She had no experience cooking for that number and was unfamiliar with country ways, so had to endure their derision for her shortcomings that day.

Over time, Kay became adept at making wonderful meals. She churned butter, strained milk, plucked chickens and made applesauce, pickles, preserves and bread. Her pies were legendary.

She also learned the way to survive in the country, which was to attend church and church functions. She was involved more for social acceptance than for religious reasons, but her faith helped her persevere in a difficult marriage in a lonely farmhouse. Her survival strategy was to avoid conflict, protect her children - Duncan, Douglas, Scott and Rosemary - and keep the daily routine as normal as possible. She did not complain or ask for sympathy.

Kay was never more proud than when she attended her children's graduations and weddings. Her insistence on proper etiquette and manners established attributes they follow to this day.

After the death of her husband in 1968, Kay became a competitive bridge player, travelling all over the world to play in bridge tournaments or visit her children. Kay also loved antiques.

In her last years, she amused nursing-home staff with her wit and candour. She was an avid reader, so when macular degeneration prevented her from reading, she would remember a favourite novel and go over the plot and characters in her mind. She said hallucinations kept her life interesting and relieved the boredom.

Gracious and dignified, Kay was a role model for how to live a positive, non-judgmental and fulfilling life in spite of hardship and sadness. She grew from a naive young girl to a thoughtful, sensible and loving mother, grandmother of 10 and great-grandmother of four. Her legacy will live on as her well-used recipes are brought out once again to prepare the pickles and applesauce she pioneered so lovingly for our family.

At sixteen years of age he went to Berlin where he was engaged in the mercantile business with Isaac Hoffman for nearly six years. Realizing the necessity of a better education he entered the North Western College at Naperville, Illinois, where he spent over four years in hard study. His purpose was to give his life to the Christian ministry. Accordingly he entered the Canadian Conference of the Evangelical Association in 1878. He has served in said church regularly ever since, serving a number of congregations, when after ten years of service he was elected presiding elder which position he now holds for nearly two terms or eight years. He has been appointed three times as delegate to the General Conference, represented his conference for nine years as trustee of the N. W. College at Naperville, Illinois, and Union Biblical Institute, also at two annual sessions of the General Missionary Board of his church.

J. B.WINGER

Well known Elmira man passes away without warning

Citizens of Elmira received a shock on Friday morning when the news spread around town that J. B. Winger had died. He suffered a stroke of apoplexy and passed away before the doctor arrived. The deceased was born on a farm near Elmira, a son of the late Peter Winger, and had spent all his life here. For this reason he remembered much of the early history of Elmira and thoroughly enjoyed meeting the old boys and girls during the days of the Reunion. He was married about 42 years ago to Mary Weber, daughter of the later Solomon Weber, who survives him with two sons and a grandson. The sons are: Raymond, of Washington, D.C., and Russell, of Fort Worth, Texas. The former visited his parents a few weeks ago. His wife and little son remained here. The latter was here for the Reunion and is here still. The deceased in his youth worked in the local woollen mills and later for some years conducted the business in company with his brother Henry.

The First Incubator

John Winger's pumpshop rested where George Potter's block now stands. Mr. Winger made pumps and broom-handles. In 1860 he leased part of the building to a group of American refugees for a cut-tobacco works. George Randall afterward bought the works and engaged Ralph Chamberlain as manager. Still later Wm. Oelschlager and Henry F. J. Jackson purchased the business and built a factory near the corner of Waterloo and Victoria Streets. Mr. Winger's incubator housed also Simpson & Aldous's furniture enterprise and Matthias Wegenast's sash, door, and washboard works.

Melvin Winger Killed When the news of the train wreck at Islington, which took place last Tuesday, first reached here, it was not suspected that the fatalities would be of more than ordinary interest to our citizens. It transpired however, that the fireman who was killed in the wreck and whose name was given as Charles Winger, was Melvin Charles Winger, a native of Elmira. He was the only son of Mr. Reuben Winger who formerly lived here. He went by the name of Melvin here, hence the failure of recognizing him by the newspaper reports. Toronto, March 17. - Brakeman David Taylor, of London and Fireman Charles Winger, of Windsor, are victims in the latest railway wreck... Mr Winger was married only last December and lived in Toronto. His parents are now living in Brantford... Mr. Hy. Winger of Elmira attended the funeral.

39700 Peter Winger, "the eldest in the family, was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, April 18th, 1818. In 1834, he, in company with one George Eby, drove with a horse and buggy from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, to Waterloo County, Ontario, making the trip in two weeks. In fall of the same year he returned to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where he remained until May, 1835, when he made the second trip to Canada and settled in Berlin, Ontario. He worked the first year in the town of Waterloo, on Mr. Jacob Schneider's sawmills, receiving the wonderful salary of #7 per month. On November 7th, 1837, he went to Bridgeport and engaged himself to the late Jacob S. Shoemaker as miller, in whose service he remained eleven years. In September, 1848, he moved to Woolwich Township, on the farm now possessed by Isaac Hilborn. In January, 1849, he was appointed assessor for Woolwich Township, then including Pilkington Township. He was one of the early councillors of Woolwich Township and was deputy reeve when Berlin was made the county town for the newly formed county of Waterloo. Later in life he was engaged in the mercantile, woollen and lumber business. About the year 1867 he received the appointment of post master for Elmira which position he held until his death which took place July 27th, 1889. The following interesting notice has been taken from the pages of Mr. Winger's journal, now in possession of his son, Jacob: "At a meeting called by public notice from Peter Winger, Esq., reeve of the township of Woolwich, held at St. Jacobs on the 26th day of March, 1853, for the purpose of forming a township Agricultural Society. Upon the notice being read and the object being explained for which the meeting was called it was unanimously resolved that a society be forthwith formed, to be called the Township of Woolwich Agricultural Society. Thereupon James Mirrilees was called to the chair. When it was moved by B. H. Curtis, seconded by John Meyers that James Dow be president and Charles Henry vice-president for the current year. 1st, Moved by Chas. Hendry, seconded by James MaConichee that the following gentlemen be directors for the current year, viz: B. H. Curtis, John Seaton, John Meyers, James Burnett, James Hall, Wm. H Peterson, Jacob Winkler and Joseph Hardy. 2nd, Moved by John Meyers, seconded by Charles Hendry that James Mirrilees be appointed secretary and treasurer. Thereupon the meeting adjourned: the directors to meet again at Kuntze's Hotel, Conestogo, on Saturday, April 23rd, (1853) at the hour of 2 o'clock in the afternoon." Mr. Winger was married, January 24th 1838, to Maria Baumann (No. 314) who was born January 1st, 1817, and died in Elmira, April 25th, 1886. Some time after her decease he was again married to Catherine Martin, widow of the late Moses Musselman. To him and his first wife was born a family of seven children"

__________________

It becomes our duty this week to chronicle the death of our respected Postmaster, Peter Winger, which took place Saturday evening at 5 o'clock, without a struggle. Mr. Winger had been failing for a year past but more noticeably the last few months, and though feeling his natural powers failing, yet being possessed of great energy, was unwilling to yield and only took his bed about two weeks previous to his demise. Mr. Winger was born on the 18th of April, 1818 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and was therefore in his 72nd year. He came to Canada a the age of 17 in company with Mr. George Eby. They drove from Lancaster County to Waterloo with a one horse conveyance and after spending the summer here prospecting returned in the fall and accompanied by his parents again returned to Canada and located in Berlin.

He was first employed by a Mr. Snyder of Waterloo at his saw mill, but being inclined for flour milling removed to Bridgeport and learned the milling business under Mr. Jacob Shoemaker of the Bridgeport mills and remained there 12 years. Mr. Winger was a very powerful man and in his younger days thought it fun to carry a four bushel sack of wheat up two flight of stairs. Being of genial temperament was much beloved by all with whom he came in contact, either in business or pleasure. In the year 1848 Mr. Winger moved to the Township of Woolwich, where he bought the farm at present occupied by Mr. Isaac Hilborn, here he remained until 1855 when he removed to Elmira and entered into partnership with Isaac Wenger and S. S. Weaver, under the firm of Winger, Weaver and Co., as general Merchants. They also conducted the Woolen and Saw Mills.

Mr. Winger was the originator of the Woolwich Agricultural Show and for many years was Secretary of the same. In 1863 he received the appointment of Postmaster of Elmira, which position he filled with much satisfaction. Politically Mr. Winger was a consistant Reformer. For many years and during the early and trying history of the County he held a position in the Council, and was Deputy-Reeve of Woolwich during the time of building of the County Buildings and is the last of the then Council., which consisted of the following members" - John Scott M. D., Henry Snyder, John Hawk, Gabriel Hawk, John Ernst, Anthony Kaiser, Charles McGeorge, M. D., Duncan Ferguson, John Meyer, Peter Winter, Absolom Shade, Jacob Hespeler, Dr. Scott being Warden. It is to this Council that credit is due for obtaining the County seat at Berlin. The war was fierce and only resulted in Berlin gaining the day after many strategic efforts on the part of Galt and Southern portion of the County being outwitted by their northern contemporaries. Mr. Winger was one of the Board of Directors of the Waterloo Fire Insurance Company in its inception and in after years did valuable service as local agent for both Life and Fire Departments. Many who relied upon him for writing wills, deeds and conveyancing generally will miss him and his genial smile and friendly greetings will be missed from his usual place of business.

Mr. Winger leaves a wife and six children all of whom were around him during his last illness. His funeral was largely attended, among whom were many representative men from Waterloo, Berlin, Conestogo, Elora, St. Jacobs, Glenallan, Hawksville and the Townships of Peel, Woolwich and Wellesley. The serviced were conducted by Abram Martin, Mennonite Bishop, assisted by Rev. Mr. Wear, W. M. Minster of Elmira, His remains were deposited in the Mennonite burying ground near Elmira.

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.

39705 Alex Murdoch came here from St. Marys about 1870 to learn the Blacksmithing trade with James P. Johnston and after his time was out he continued with Mr. Johnston until 1874. Afterwards, he started business on his own in the shop on Cooper Street and there remained until 1886 when he sold out to William Wingfield and went west.

During at least the five years - 1882-1886 - his brother, Andrew, worked with him and in 1886 there was still another brother, John Murdoch, here who too was a blacksmith. A sister, Jane, worked for Randall Farr & Co. for three years prior to her marriage to Robert Hammersley on New Year's Day, 1874.....William Wingfield carried on the Cooper Street Shop from 1886 till he sold out in 1908 to John Bolton. Bolton was there only about a year and in 1909 he sold to Herbert L, Ott. In 1921, Mr. Ott started into the garage and 'service station business and his Uncle, Barney Goebel, took over the blacksmithing business on Cooper Street and continued till his death.

Hespeler Baptist Church

The congregation was organized by South Water Street Baptist Church, Galt, and a first meeting was held on July 16, 1889 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Wingfield. Regular services began on July 28, 1889 in Glick's Hall with Pastor Frank Beattie from Galt as preacher; there were 30 people present. When the weather became too cool to meet in Glick's Hall, services were held as of October 27, 1889 in the Mechanics' Institute Hall above James Salt's blacksmith shop. Pastor Beattie preached for the last time on November 6th and on November 24, 1889 Rev. John M. McQuarrie, who had been called to Hespeler, preached his first sermon. Formal organization of the congregation as the Hespeler Regular Baptist Church had taken place on October 11th, but the special service to officially transfer membership of the 19 charter members to the new church was not held until December 25, 1889. A Sunday School was organized on January 15, 1890 and opened on January 26th.

Services continued in the Mechanics' Institute Hall until 1892 when plans were made to build a church. On June 12, 1892 a building lot on King Street (now Tannery Street) was purchased for $150; the contract for the building which was signed on October 14th was for $1400. A service of dedication was held on Saturday evening, February 11, 1893 at 7: 30 p.m., and the new brick church was officially opened the next day, on February 12, 1893 at 10: 30 a.m. with Rev. S.S. Bates of College Street Baptist Church in Toronto as guest speaker. The Preston Baptist Church was organized on May 7, 1895 and for most of the next decade its congregation was ministered to by the pastor from Hespeler.
Electric lights were installed in the Hespeler church in 1902 and on December 18, 1904 the first service was held in the newly enlarged and remodelled church. In 1927 the congregation joined the newly organized Union of Regular Baptist Churches of Ontario and Quebec.
Arrangements were made in February 1951 for the construction of a new church at the corner of Adam and David Streets and on April 4th the Salvation Army's offer to purchase the old church (for $8,500) was accepted. The sod-turning ceremony was held on May 1, 1951, the corner stone was laid on June 29, and on November 4, 1951, at 9: 45 a.m., the door opening service was held at the new church. The church was again enlarged with the construction of an addition in 1960. The church celebrated its 75th Anniversary in 1964.
Early pastors who followed Rev. McQuarrie (1889-1892) were Revs. William Freed (1892-1895), William Peer (1895-1896) and A.R. McDonald (1896-1901).

39706 "It wasn't luck that built the business, but quality and service."

This is the slogan of Wingham's Market. Charles Wingham, proprietor of Wingham's Market, began his career in the meat business in Stevens county with a market on the corner of Main and Astor, where the Bank of Colville now stands. That was in 1900. Three years later he conducted a similar business in Marcus and then returned to Colville, purchasing his former market. In 1905 he bought the P. H. Hessel business, and soon he was managing five markets, one in each of the following towns: Chewelah, Addy, Springdale, Meyers Falls, Colville. Finally Mr. Wingham purchased the interests of his partners and concentrated his attention on the Colville business.

Six years ago he built the brick building in which he is conducting one of the best equipped and most modern meat markets in the northwest. A modem chilling plant, using the ammonia system, is part of the up to-date equipment of the market. There is the latest type of sausage machinery, a hydraulic press for pressing out lard, and other improved accessories. The walls and woodwork of the basement and the chilling plant are enameled with packinghouse enamel. Everything is as clean and spotless as the most particular housewife could desire and thirty years of experience could make it.

One is impressed not only by the sanitary appearance of the shop, but also by the attractively arranged displays of meats, fruits and vegetables. Head lettuce, leaf lettuce, tomatoes, celery, cauliflower, radishes, grapefruit, oranges and other fruits and vegetables in and out of season look very inviting to the shopper as they are placed on exhibit by Mr. Shonewald each morning. It is evidently a belief in the Wingham Market that a meat market should look just as appetizing as a confectionery showcase or a delicatessen display. Much of the credit for his success is attributed by Mr. Wingham to the fact that he has always paid strict attention to his business.

He began thirty years ago by helping his brother-in-law peddle some meat in a trip through the small towns of Minnesota. He liked it and decided to learn the meat business, and his thirty years of experience have given him judgment in buying meats of quality. There are customers who have been patrons of the market for as long as twelve years, believing in its quality and service. As to service, Mr. Wingham gives a large share of credit for his market's success in serving the public to Frank Shonewald and T. L. Montgomery, who have been with him for some time, and to his son Roscoe who is in the business with him. "It wasn't luck that built the business,' but quality and service" is the slogan of Wingham's Market.

39715 St. Jacobs Evangelical Association Calvary United Church Begun: 1848

A first church, of logs, was built in 1850 on land donated by Anthony Reitzel; the deed to the land is dated 1848. The church building was located in the southeast corner of the present cemetery. Philip Winkler, who travelled as far away as Ayton to conduct services, was the first preacher. A new white brick church was built in 1864 on the present site to replace the first log structure which had become too small. The new church was in use until 1914 when it was torn down to be replaced by the present red brick one. Dedication services for the new church were held from February 26 to March 1, 1915, with Bishop W. Horn of Cleveland, Ohio, president of the Canada Conference, officiating. Renovations and additions have been made since then to produce the distinctive structure of today.

St. Jacobs was on the Elmira Circuit of the Evangelical Association which included Elmira (the home base of the Circuit), Flora (later Floradale) and North Woolwich. In the early 1890s St. Jacobs was in the North District of the Canada Conference of the Evangelical Association, and included Elmira and Woolwich. H. Dierlamm and Philip Winkler were pastors in 1890. Rev. A.Y. Haist was pastor in 1893-1894 also with Philip Winkler.

On November 16, 1946 the Evangelical Church united with the United Brethren in Christ Church to form the Evangelical United Brethren Church. When the Evangelical United Brethren joined the United Church on January 1, 1968, the church became a United Church and was joined with Floradale for a short time. Calvary was placed on a two-point charge with Conestogo United Church in June 1970.

MARRIED SIXTY-SIX YEARS - Very few married people are permitted to live long enough in happy wedlock to celebrate the 66th anniversary of their wedding day, but such was the privilege enjoyed by Rev. and Mrs. Ph. Winkler who celebrated that event on New Years Day at their home, Yonge St., in the presence of some of their children, relatives and friends. It's just six years since they celebrated their "Diamond Wedding" when a large number of their near relatives and friends took part in the festivities. Since that time some of those who were present on that occasion have departed this life. However, Mr. and Mrs. Winkler are still enjoying pretty good health, Mr. Winkler who is now in his 89th year was a faithful minister of the Evangelical Association for many years, but retired from active service over 25 years ago. During the afternoon Mr. Winkler expressed his views on the future of the Jews, and other topics from the Bible. The many […clipping obscured] of our grand old man and his […clipping obscured] join in wishing them both […clipping obscured] of the day.

39716 roots stem from the early German pioneers of the Evangelical Church. Missionaries travelled on horseback through dense woodlands to visit the isolated and lonely settlers who were eager to hear about the "Light" of life. This was around the time the foundations of St. Jacobs were being laid. Several families became keenly interested in the Evangelical Movement of the Methodist-type spiritual preaching. A class was soon formed and their homes were opened for proclaiming the Word. In 1848, a little log church was built on the site of our present cemetery and was the first church in the village. Rev. Philip Winkler, who played a very important role in establishing this church, was the first minister and Sunday School Superintendent Rev. Johan Philip Winkler

39732 Old Elmira Resident Dead - Mr. Stephen Winn, familiarly known as Dad, an old and respected resident of our village, passed to the great beyond at St. Joseph's Hospital, Guelph, on Tuesday afternoon. The deceased was born on Yong St., County of York, in 1832. He came to the "Queen's Bush" about the year 1847, one of a large family of boys and girls, and settled on a farm near Hawkesville. He was married to Elizabeth Hawke, who now mourns her separation from him, and together they lived a free, happy life, their latch string being always out to the young people of their neighborhood, especially during the sugar making season, the honey season, or when the green corn was fit for use and the pumpkin ready for pie. They moved to Elmira in 1901, and Mr. Winn enjoyed a cheerful, jovial spirit all his days, and fairly good health until a couple of months ago, when his last illness set in. To relieve him of severe pain an operation was advised and he went to a Guelph hospital for treatment. The operation was in a measure successful, but he was too feeble to recuperate and death came as a welcome release. Besides his sorrowing widow there survive him six children, namely - Mrs. Henry Peterson, St. Jacobs; Cosford, at home; Lawson and Joshun, New York; Mrs. Charles Christman, of Windsor; and Theophilus, of Preston. Of the older family only a sister, Mrs. J. B. Hughes, of Waterloo, is living.

The funeral will be held on Friday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock and the remains will be laid to rest in Hawkesville cemetery.

1876-1941

Lack of education does not keep a man from reaching great heights. William Wintemberg, a blacksmith's son, born in New Dundee of German-Alsatian parents, overcame several handicaps, and was elected to fellowship in the Royal Society of Canada.

A shy, retiring boy, weak physically, he was apprenticed to a tailor. At sixteen he worked in Toronto as a printer, and later a coppersmith. He became a helper at the Ontario Provincial Museum, and due to his great interest in Indian artifacts was appointed assistant to the chief archaeologist of the Royal Victoria Museum, Ottawa. In 1926, for health reasons, he curtailed his work but continued to take part in excavations throughout Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes. He worked at the St. Ignace II research project.

An expert in Iroquoian archaeology, he published seventy-five articles and pamphlets. His book, Folklore of Waterloo County , gives a true picture of the early settlers.

A group of thirteen people who had been holding prayer meetings in Galt were organized in 1876 into a Free Methodist Society by Rev. Charles H. Sage of the North Michigan Conference. Galt was the first Free Methodist congregation in Canada. Rev. D.D. Marston (1877-1878) was the first resident minister, followed by James Craig (1879) and J.H. Winter (1880). The Canada Conference of the Free Methodist Church was organized at a meeting in Galt in 1880.

Early services of the Galt Free Methodist Church were held in a house on Brook Street owned by Mr. & Mrs. E. Rhodes until a church was built. The first parsonage was built in 1904 on land donated by J. Ballantine. In 1909, when J.A. Fletcher was minister, the church and parsonage were sold and a downtown church was built at 37 Wellington St. An adjacent building was purchased for a parsonage. In May 1953 the sod was turned for a new church on South Street at Centre Street; a basement church was opened in October of that year; the upper part of the church was built c.1956.

39748 The bell tolls for Chalmers Presbyterian

After 141 years, Chalmers Presbyterian church in Winterbourne will be closing its doors for the final time with a special service tomorrow (Sunday) night. "The service of closing a church is rather like a funeral," said Rev. Mary Whitson, who has spent the past three years at Chalmers and during that time has presided over one wedding and three baptisms. "It's a sad thing for those who are left, and at the same time it is a celebration of those who have gone before and have maintained it this long."

Built in 1870, church members have finally arrived at one undeniable fact: people no longer seem interested in attending church anymore....The church has also not been designated as a heritage structure by the province, though Clemens said that the government tried to a few years ago and that the congregation fought it at the time in order to retain control over the structure. He said that they would likely welcome that designation now if it meant saving the church. "That would be nice, rather than having it torn down," he said. The remaining clergy will likely splinter and move to other churches, which will be difficult for Whitson to watch given her time there. "They are a wonderful group of people. Small, but very, very faithful, and I have certainly enjoyed the time that I have had to serve with them. It breaks my heart to see it go and for those 11 people to carry on will be difficult."...The final service at Chalmers Presbyterian Church will be tomorrow (Sunday) evening at 7 p.m. at the intersection of Kathleen Street and Peel Street in Winterbourne.1a

_______________________

Chalmers Presbyterian Church


The congregation's history is mingled with that of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Winterbourne. Early services, begun c.1837, were for all Presbyterians. However, there was a split in the Presbyterian Church in 1844 which resulted in congregations belonging to the Presbyterian Church of Canada in Connection with the Church of Scotland and others belonging to the Free (Presbyterian) Church of Canada. The local congregation also split with the result that a new congregation of Free Church members was formed, to be called eventually Chalmers Presbyterian Church. These members were barred immediately from use of their former place of worship.

The Free Church congregation therefore held services in the stone schoolhouse; as of 1847 a regular summer supply of student preachers was sent to the area by Knox College. In 1848 the congregation built their own frame church which was located behind the present Chalmers church. The first entry in Chalmers Session Book was dated December 31, 1857. Rev. George Cuthbertson had been ordained and inducted into Chalmers on October 7, 1857 and was to remain until March 5, 1862. He was followed by Revs. W.S. Ball (1863-1864), Edward Graham (1864-1869), and Hugh Thompson. In 1861 the United Presbyterian Church and the Free Presbyterian Church joined to form the Canada Presbyterian Church. On January 23, 1865 the church was referred to as Chalmers Presbyterian Church, Winterbourne, for the first time. The present church building was erected in 1870.

The Union of all Presbyterian churches in Canada occurred in 1875. On May 1, 1876 St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church joined with Chalmers. The Rev. Alexander M. Hamilton began a ministry to the combined congregations on May 22, 1877, a ministry which was to last for 40 years. The 100th Anniversary of the church building was celebrated on November 22, 1970.

39754 Apparently Sister called him when here for Pop's funeral. Spoke to Gerrard May 19,1993 at his house - Huron & Westmount Rd. He bought 8 George St. from Pop in 1949 for his sister in law Sally Klassen. Gerrard took over Klopher Coal from his father's sister Gertrude Winterhalt who was married to August Frank - this family raised him after his mother died in 1918. He had a problem with step mother's will - it had been prepared by Rohleder, Walter McGibbon acted for Gerrard but needed some pushing. Gerrard worked in the "Bauer coconut soap factory" when it first started in the Huether Hotel. Spoke to him again on May 28/93 along with Paul.Gerrard gave us some dates and names.

39765 HONOURABLE JOHN J. WINTERMEYER 1916-1993

John Wintermeyer's long career in public life was one that could truly be called "a devoted service to a calling."

Wintermeyer was born in Berlin (Kitchener) and attended St. Jerome's High School. He graduated in commerce and philosophy from the University of Notre Dame before attending Harvard Law School. In 1943, he graduated from Dalhousie Law School and he was admitted to the bar in Nova Scotia and Ontario.

In 1958, Wintermeyer became leader of the Ontario Liberal Party, a position he held until 1963. As leader of the official opposition in the Legislature, Wintermeyer stressed the need for hospital and medical insurance, education reform, improvements in public services, equality of opportunity and constitutional changes.

Wintermeyer was known as man of deep faith, charity and integrity. He held a Papal Honour - Member of the Order of St. Sylvestre, Sir Knight of Malta; and he held a Civilian Honour - Member of the Military Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem. In 1993, he was honoured as Kitchener Citizen of the Year in recognition of his public contributions, and his commitment and dedication to the community. He served on the boards of numerous organizations including St. Mary's St. Vincent de Paul, The Working Centre, the Anna Kaljas House, St. John's Kitchen and Reaching Our Outdoor Friends.

Wintermeyer played an integral role in the development of Hockey Canada, serving as President and Director, and he was Chairman of the Canadian Olympic Hockey Foundation.

________________________________________

John Kaiser Wintermeyer came from Straubing, Bavaria Germany in 1869 with his parents and siblings: Anna 1863, Mary 1864, Rosina 1869 and Jacob 1874. John Wintermeyer and his younger brother Jacob Wintermeyer started their own business in Berlin Ontario prior to World War 1. The business was a glue factory. The brothers became involved in a dispute and John bought Jacob out of the business. During WWI there was a great need for glycerine, a by-product of glue, as a component of explosives. The family business did very well. John Wintermeyer asked his son Alfred Carl (a loan's officer at the Bank of Montreal) to join him in the business. Subsequently a businessman from Windsor Ontario asked John and son Alfred Carl to become 50/50 partners in Essex Meat Packers, which they did. Shortly thereafter John Wintermeyer was injured severely at work when a barrel fell on his legs and crushed them, leaving him paralysed. Both family businesses were thus sold and the accumulated capital from the sales was used to invest in the stock market. Alfred Carl invested in gold in 1930 after exploring investment opportunities in Kirkland Lake Ontario. He purchased shared in the Wright/Hargreaves Mines and the Hollinger-Lakshore Mines. His fortune was further made

39774 St. Clement's Roman Catholic Church

The first Catholic missionaries in the area were Father James W. Campion, Father Cassidy and Father John Cullen - beginning c.1828. They were followed by the St. Agatha missionaries, Fathers John Louis Wiriath (1834-1837) and Peter Schneider (1838-1844), but it was Father Simon Sanderl (1844-1848), also from St. Agatha, who organized the construction of a church. The deed for the land, located on the northwest corner of Duke and Guelph (now Dolph) Streets and purchased from the Erb brothers (for five shillings), was dated March 9, 1846, but it is thought that building actually began in 1844. The new church was reported to be "perhaps the only substantial Catholic church west of Toronto" (Spetz 1916: 139).
Services were held more or less monthly for many years as priests were in short supply and had to be shared by other congregations. Regular monthly services began in February 1882 with the arrival of Father William Kloepfer of Berlin who looked after Preston as well. Then, beginning in 1889 Preston and Hespeler became missions of Galt. Finally, on March 25, 1905, Preston received its own resident pastor, Rev. Jonas Lenhard. By now it had become apparent that a new and larger church was definitely needed but it was not until January 1907, when Father William Gehl was pastor, that land further along Duke Street was purchased. The cornerstone for the present church was laid September 4, 1911, and the basement of the building was ready for use the following year. The basement continued in use for services until the church was completely finished in 1922. The old church had been torn down in the summer of 1915. Fire on December 26, 1971 caused considerable damage, but the church was not damaged structurally. Repairs were made and the church was rededicated on June 25, 1972.

39785 St. Agatha seems to have had a parish school as early as the time of Father Wiriath, i.e., about 1835. The log building served as a school for Catholics and non-Catholics and also as a church and priest's quarters for many years.
The first stone building was erected in 1854, through the untiring efforts of Father Ebner. It is still standing, but used only for meetings. The present school in connection with the Orphanage was erected of stone in 1875, and this was enlarged in 1890.
As to teachers it is difficult to give the names aad the order of their succession for want of old records. As far as could be ascertained, the following gentlemen wielded the rod here : Peter Wirtz , Joseph Strub, John Gatchene, Nicolaus Sorg, Wendelin Schuler, Carl W. Leverman, Antony Elmlinger, August Kaiser, Peter Brick, Peter Schmidt, August Meyer, and Linus Tschirhart......

1854 the Berlin church project began to take shape. A site was purchased from Mr. Weber on the southeast corner of Weber and Duke Streets, for $200.00. Mr. Nieolaus Dopp said that the land was bought from his father. But the deed was given by Mr. Weber and is dated Aug. 16th, 1854.
The building was begun soon after if not before. Mrs. Ferdinand Walter told the writer that she was present at the laying of the corner stone by Bishop De Charbonnel, as a member of the St. Agatha church choir, under the leadership of Mr. Wirtz, then teacher at St. Agatha. She received an image from the Bishop on the occasion which she treasured religiously. Unfortunately she could not give the date of the ceremony.1
