This writer, traced Susan down to The House of Industry and Refuge, 1887-1947. Susan was admitted in 1899 at the age of 42. The records state she was from Maryborough Township and admitted by her father. She was "weak of mind". she lived there and died there. The building then became the Home for the Aged. There are no stone markers for her grave but an overall large stone marking all those who passed away at this institute. There are no other records I found. There are no death notices in either the Drayton, Elora newspapers. Her shawl is on display at the museum in this building which is now the Wellington County Museum & Archives...

9044 A Kitchener Knight: Augie Herchenratter's wartime valour earns him France's highest honour Nov. 5

I have been following The Record's series on local soldiers who fought in the First World War.

I think of the veterans in my own family with pride: my grandfather, David Thomson Croal, was one of those local heroes who came to Canada and then returned to his home country of Scotland to fight for our freedom. My father, Ken Croal, was a Second World War veteran who signed on with the Forestry Corps; and my mother, Lillian Croal, served in England in the Women's Auxiliary Air Force.

It was the Wednesday article on Second World War veteran Augie Herchenratter that moved me as I picked up the morning paper. What a fearless brave young man he was to carry out the mission given to him after many of his comrades had fallen to press on to free the French town of Buron. Finally, he has received the medal and recognition he so well deserved.

As Remembrance Day approaches, when we see veterans, we should shake their hand and thank them for their sacrifices fighting for our freedom. We should stand at the cenotaph and remember those who fell in the fight. The First World War veterans are long gone and Second World War veterans are dwindling as they succumb to old age. It is important to remember their stories, their courage and bravery. Lest we forget.

9045 James (Hamish) Patrick Croal was born in Galt (Cambridge) and educated in Scotland. He joined the Merchant Marine before the start of WWII, enlisted as an Ordinary Seaman and earned his commission in 1944.

Following the War, Croal pushed back Canada's Arctic frontiers. He was appointed Naval Observer for Exercise Muskox, the Canadian Army's cold weather training project. As a civilian with the Defence Research Board in Churchill, Manitoba, he studied ice conditions, behavior of vehicles and appropriate clothing and rations for military and scientific personnel operating in the Arctic. In 1948 he was a Canadian observer on American led expeditions to the Arctic when drilling tests were done for the construction of the Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line radar sites. This work resulted in Croal receiving a personnel commendation from the United States of America Secretary of the Navy.

In 1949, Croal joined the permanent force of the Royal Canadian Navy and was assigned to test survival equipment north of Churchill. He was on HMCS Labrador in 1954 when it became the first Canadian icebreaker to sail through the Northwest Passage, subsequently circumnavigating North America via the Panama Canal. He trained Canadian Army instructors in survival techniques and was a Defence Research Board consultant in a 1959 study of sea ice. In retirement Croal continued to work for the Defence Research Board in Ottawa, was a consultant to the Department of the Environment and to the Arctic Institute of Canada to which he was inducted as a Fellow.

9051 Southworks Outlet Mall is named after the South Works of Babcock & Wilcox. With two major facilities in town, B&W distinguished between their North Works and their South Works. The Southworks name stuck. Dumfries Foundry, is the forerunner of B&W, and was founded in 1844 by James Andrews and James Crombie. The foundry was located on a site which is commonly thought to be where the Cambridge Bus Depot is now located. In 1847 Dumfries Foundry moved to the Grand Avenue site.

In 1850 Andrews experienced personal financial difficulties and Crombie, at the age of 32, took over the business. The Dumfries Foundry was renamed James Crombie & Co. It was gaining an excellent reputation for building engines. When Great Britain became embroiled in the Crimean War in 1854 it was a great stimulant to Crombie's business because with Britain manufacturing war materials Canada had to satisfy its own needs from its own resources.

9066 CROOKS, JAMES, businessman, militia officer, office holder, justice of the peace, and politician; b. 15 April 1778 in the parish of Kilmarnock, Scotland, son of William Crooks, shoemaker, and Margaret Ramsay; m. 8 Dec. 1808 Jane Cummings, and they had eight sons and five daughters; d. 2 March 1860 in West Flamborough Township, Upper Canada.

In 1791 James Crooks immigrated from Scotland to join his half-brother Francis, who about 1788 had established a mercantile concern at Fort Niagara (near Youngstown, N.Y.) at the mouth of the Niagara River. In 1792, about which time Francis probably left a partnership with Robert Hamilton* to set up Crooks and Company, they were joined by James's brother William. As a result of British plans in 1795 to improve the defensive works at Fort Niagara, the company's premises were apparently expropriated, forcing the Crookses to move across the river to Newark (Niagara-on-the-Lake), Upper Canada, where they resumed business. After Francis died in the West Indies in 1797, the brothers formed W. and J. Crooks, which became competitively engaged in numerous enterprises, particularly military provisioning, the shipment of grain and flour to Lower Canada, brewing and distilling, and the production of potash. To facilitate these operations the brothers chartered vessels, and in 1811 they had built at Niagara (Niagara-on-the-Lake) the schooner Lord Nelson, the principal vessel in their carrying business.
James Crooks quickly gained prominence within the local élite, which included many Scots merchants and office holders. Between 1794 and 1807 he rose from ensign to captain in the 1st Lincoln Militia. In 1797 he became postmaster at Newark. Three years later he campaigned with other Niagara merchants, notably Robert Hamilton and John Warren*, to secure the election of two mercantile candidates, Samuel Street* and William Dickson*, in Lincoln and of the influential Surveyor General David William Smith* in the riding of Norfolk, Oxford and Middlesex. In 1808 Crooks's position within the community was strengthened when he married a daughter of a loyalist and former member of Butler's Rangers, Thomas Cummings, of nearby Chippawa.

In the Niagara District after 1800 industrial and mercantile activities which were related to local agricultural needs and to the export trade in Lower Canada became increasingly important. In 1809, in an attempt to break Thomas Clark*'s domination of milling in the district, Crooks petitioned for mill-sites on islands near Chippawa, without success. As a result he looked elsewhere: he bought land in 1810 along the Trent River, in the Newcastle District, and the next year he purchased 400 acres at the head of Lake Ontario in West Flamborough Township from Elizabeth Russell*, sister and heiress of Peter Russell*, a former customer of W. and J. Crooks.

The War of 1812, in which Crooks fought, precipitated the collapse of his Niagara operations and had an indelible effect on his political outlook. On 5 June, 13 days before the declaration of war, the Lord Nelson had been commandeered on Lake Ontario by the American navy and later armed for service under the name Scourge. During the American occupation of Niagara between May and December 1813 invading troops seized or destroyed Crooks's nearby homestead, Crookston, and his buildings and goods in Niagara; for these losses, as well as for those sustained in the sinking of the Lord Nelson during a storm that year, he later submitted claims totalling more than £9,700. Though allowed £4,450 on his losses at Niagara, he never fully recovered from these severe financial setbacks.

As a captain in the 1st Lincoln he commanded a flank company at the battle of Queenston Heights on 13 Oct. 1812, for which action he was commended by Major-General Roger Hale Sheaffe. Crooks later claimed that he had been authorized to recruit for a majority in the proposed incorporated militia during the winter of 1812-13 but the promotion was never officially recognized. Following the capture of York (Toronto) by the Americans in April 1813, Crooks and other men of standing in the Niagara peninsula petitioned Brigadier-General John Vincent* to institute strict measures to quell civil disaffection. Crooks later served on the grand jury which found true bills against Jacob Overholser* and others accused of treasonous activity. On 26 May 1813 the Crooks family, with James probably in the lead, had fled from the frontier. They resided for a time in Thorold, where James's second son was born in July. During this period he remained on active military duty.

In November 1814, when Crooks again petitioned unsuccessfully for mill-sites in the Niagara River, he was still hoping to restore his Niagara base. By that time, however, he had settled in West Flamborough, no doubt conscious of that locale's relatively secure position in the event of future hostilities and of its commercial potential. Within four years, in a remarkable display of energy and resilience, he had constructed there along Spencer Creek a grist-mill, sawmill, carding-mill, general store, cooperage, and blacksmith's shop, forming a complex and small community later known as Crooks' Hollow (near present-day Greensville). In 1818 he was granted a quay lot in Coote's Paradise (Dundas) on Burlington Bay (Hamilton Harbour), a few miles from his prospering entrepôt. He quickly became active in district and provincial affairs. First commissioned as a justice of the peace in 1814, he was later named chairman of the Gore District Court of Quarter Sessions, in which office he was soon known for his vehement interest in removing the district seat from Hamilton to Dundas. In 1818 Crooks, Thomas Clark, Joseph Papineau*, and George Garden* formed a joint Upper and Lower Canadian committee on the improvement of navigation on the St Lawrence River. They recommended the construction of canals comparable in size to those in New York State. Crooks was elected in 1820 to the House of Assembly along with William Chisholm to represent the riding of Halton and two years later he became colonel of the 1st Regiment of Gore militia.

As an industrialist Crooks was woefully aware of the shortage of working capital in Upper Canada and he opposed any impediments thrown in the way of private enterprise. For development to occur, he believed, private and public interests must dovetail. Probably because of his strong commercial background and conservative inclinations, he was named in 1822 to the first board of directors for the Bank of Upper Canada [see William Allan]. In the assembly he energetically promoted both domestic manufacturing and the development of transportation systems, upon which the functioning of the province's economy depended. In 1823 he sponsored the bill authorizing the construction of the Burlington Bay Canal, for which he became a commissioner [see James Gordon Strobridge*]. That year, to encourage the production of exportable goods, he also tabled a bill permitting the duty-free importation from the United States of hemp mills and other machinery. As well, he chaired a parliamentary committee on legislation for appropriating funds for the improvement of inland navigation.

Crooks apparently did not run in the general elections of 1824 and 1828, perhaps because of his preoccupation with the expansion of his commercial and industrial operations. In 1822 Robert Gourlay* had speculated that "Half the farmers of Halton probably have their names standing on the books of James Crooks . . . for goods furnished to them when prices were high." During the 1820s, as before the war, Crooks operated a number of vessels in the carrying trade between Montreal, Niagara, and the head of the lake, notably for the export of flour and potash. In 1825-26, encouraged by an expanding domestic market, the British government's imposition of a high tariff on paper imported into Canada from the United States, and the £125 prize offered by the provincial assembly, he established Upper Canada's first paper-making mill, his most ambitious and innovative enterprise. Its inception was keenly supported by William Lyon Mackenzie*, for whose newspaper Crooks had been an agent. As well, by 1825 he had amassed more than 1,000 acres along the Trent River, where about 1828 he erected a grist-mill at what became known as Crooks' Rapids (Hastings). By 1834 he had built mills on the Speed River, in the region west of Dundas, and his complex on Spencer Creek had been enlarged to include, among other manufactories, a tannery, distillery, potashery, agricultural implement factory, woollen-mill, and oil-mill.

To permit this industrial expansion, between 1827 and 1835 he secured mortgages on his West Flamborough property totalling £23,500, most of it from the Bank of Upper Canada and the trustees of the Montreal firm of Maitland, Garden, and Auldjo. Possibly because of the resulting financial burden, he spent much time lobbying and petitioning for half pay on his claimed majority during the war and for a settlement of his remaining war loss claims, including that for the Lord Nelson. (Only in 1930 was any compensation received by Crooks's heirs for the loss of that ship.) He travelled to England at least once, in 1831, and to Washington twice to pursue his various claims. To generate capital on a larger scale, Crooks, whose reputation as a major land-holder was known even to "capitalists" in England, advertised in 1832 the sale of no less than 45,000 acres which he owned throughout the province.

During the late 1820s and 1830s he continued to be a highly visible proponent of schemes for developing the region around the head of the lake and of a mercantile system conducive to that development. In 1826 he promoted the linking of Burlington Bay and the Grand River by canal. Four years later he was chosen first president of the newly formed agricultural society for the Gore District and was a director of the Desjardins Canal Company [see Peter Desjardins*]. He was an initiator in 1833 of a grand proposal to join Dundas by railway to other commercial centres in western Upper Canada. In January 1830, at a public meeting in Hamilton which he organized and chaired, he had forcefully defended against American encroachment the monopoly held by the Canadas, under British statute, in trade with the British West Indies and in mercantile navigation on the St Lawrence River. Four years later in the Gore Balance he vigorously supported Upper Canada's connection with Britain on the grounds that imperial protective tariffs provided the province's produce with a "decided advantage" in British markets.
In 1830, when he was returned to parliament for Halton, Crooks was clearly in the upper realms of the province's social and industrial hierarchy. A year later he was appointed to the Legislative Council, a position he held until his death. Much of his energy in politics continued to be expended on commercial matters aimed at economic development. In 1831, for example, he supported the bill of incorporation for the Commercial Bank of the Midland District; six years later, with Absalom Shade*, Crooks managed to get substantial funds voted for the improvement of the Dundas and Waterloo road, along which they owned property.

As for the partisan issues which most inflamed Upper Canadian politics, Crooks rejected not only radicalism but the extreme toryism of the controlling, largely Anglican élite led by the Reverend John Strachan*. In the early 1820s what Crooks and William Lyon Mackenzie saw as tory misgovernment had drawn them together in a close but short-lived liaison. Crooks's position was largely defined, however, by his long association with William Morris, another moderate tory and the leading spokesman for Scottish interests in Upper Canadian politics. In 1821 Crooks had supported the movement led by Morris and John Beverley Robinson* to prevent the American-born reformer Barnabas Bidwell* from sitting in the assembly. Two years later Crooks joined Morris in moving the passage of a highly contentious bill calling for the recognition in Upper Canada of the Church of Scotland as a state church, along with the Church of England, and for its right to share equally in funding from the clergy reserves. The bill pitted Morris and Crooks decisively against the Strachanites. Yet he steadfastly refused to advance the Kirk's claims to the point of interfering with those of other denominations. In 1822-23, for example, he voted in favour of extending the legal right to solemnize marriages in Upper Canada to churches other than his own or the Church of England. His position on church-state affairs could not have been made easier by the marriage in 1827 of his daughter Jane Eliza to the Reverend Alexander Neil Bethune*, an adherent of Strachan.
Following his appointment to the Legislative Council, Crooks frequently and eloquently enunciated a view of that body as the bulwark in Upper Canada for the defence of the British constitutional balance of executive, appointive, and elected elements. Canadians, he proclaimed in the Western Mercury in 1834, must "cling to the connection with the Mother Country as to the ark of our safety" against American expansionism, whether overtly military or political. He disliked both majoritarian democracy, which he perceived many reformers to be advocating, and oligarchical tyranny, which he feared the élite behind Strachan was trying to impose, especially in the reactionary wake of the civil disorders of 1837-38. In January 1837 Crooks had opposed Strachan on the bill to amend the charter of King's College (University of Toronto) because, Crooks believed, both the disproportionate allocation of school lands to that institution and provisions for the support of district schools were detrimental to the establishment of a system of "free Grammar Schools." These he contended would best foster open competition and opportunity in society. More indicative of his status as a squirearch than of his political views was Crooks's enrolment of four sons, including Adam*, at Upper Canada College between 1839 and 1845.

By the end of the 1830s Crooks's political prominence had reached its peak. Opposition to Strachan by the so-called "Scotch party" in council, led by Crooks and Morris (who had become a legislative councillor in 1836), continued in 1839 over the Clergy Reserves Bill, a contentious piece of legislation which proposed the denominational division of the reserves, a principle accepted by Crooks. Passed in the assembly by a bare majority, the bill was opposed in council early in May only by John Simcoe Macaulay and Strachan, whose defeat greatly gratified Crooks. During the same session, however, the moderate faction on council lost a struggle to have him appointed to a joint committee on education in Strachan's stead when, on an amended motion, Macaulay was substituted.

Though Crooks, like so many others, publicly condemned the factionalism which permeated the ranks of tories and reformers alike, he was repeatedly drawn into political alignments within the Legislative Council. In 1839 he agreed with the view expressed in the report of Lord Durham [Lambton*] that the cause of political unrest in Upper Canada was monopolistic control of government by the "family compact," but he disagreed with the proposed remedy, responsible government. He preferred instead the fine-tuning of existing constitutional checks and balances by drawing executive members from all parts off the province and by making their number equal to assemblymen, introducing a court for the impeachment of government officials, and providing for joint addresses from the assembly and the Legislative Council. The institution of responsible government, he felt, would be merely an exchange of one constitutional disequilibrium for another, in which the assembly would control the executive. A committee composed of Crooks, John Simcoe Macaulay, and Adam Fergusson*, another Scottish associate, was formed in council in April 1839 to consider the Durham report. On 11 May, the last day of the session, Macaulay deviously submitted a report without ever having consulted Crooks or Fergusson. The moderates' motion in council to have this procedure investigated was defeated, but Crooks, William Morris, Fergusson, Peter Adamson, John McDonald, and Alexander Fraser entered a dissenting opinion on this decision on 9 December.

Though he professed support for political union with Lower Canada, Crooks harboured a strong disdain for French Canadians, a sentiment which pervaded proposals he put forward on union later in December: the location of the seat of government in Upper Canada, the use of English alone in parliamentary debates and proceedings, and the creation of electoral divisions in Lower Canada which would assure a "due proportion of the representation in the United Legislature to the British inhabitants" of that province. He was, nevertheless, appointed to the Legislative Council of the united provinces in 1841. In the post-union era he was past his prime as a politician. He viewed developments such as the appointment of a reform majority in council in 1843, during debate over the move of the seat from Kingston to Montreal, as an erosion of executive authority and hence a diminution of the imperial tie. In November 1843, to protest the reform majority's repeal of resolutions blocking the change of capital, Crooks, Adam Fergusson, William Henry Draper*, Levius Peters Sherwood*, Thomas McKay, Peter Boyle de Blaquière, and seven others took unprecedented action by walking out of council. Six years later Crooks, citing his role in the War of 1812 in maintaining the province as a British colony, deplored the Rebellion Losses Bill [see James Bruce*] as a device for compensating treasonous activity and as evidence of the constitutional imbalance inherent in responsible government.

Queenston Heights had been the ultimate testing ground for Crooks's fervid sentimental attachment to the motherland. During the 1850s he enthusiastically supported the Upper Canadian militia and championed unequivocal loyalty, principally by trying to keep memories of the war alive in the public consciousness. In council in 1851 he supported the issue of medals to living veterans of the battles of Queenston Heights, Ogdensburg, and Lundy's Lane. Two years later he wrote his recollections of the war, which he submitted to Thomas Maclear* for possible publication in the Anglo-American Magazine as a supplement to the articles on the war written by Gilbert Auchinleck. In 1857 Crooks was still promoting compensation for militia officers who had served in the war.

Concurrent with his belief in British patriotism as essential to social and political well-being was his constant, statesmanlike support for efforts to achieve social, religious, and political harmony, a pragmatic approach he had set forth on numerous occasions since the 1830s. Like Egerton Ryerson*, the superintendent of education who was also a political moderate, he opposed denominational schools, maintaining in council in 1855 that the "settled policy of every Government is to provide that all its subjects live in amity . . . , and that whatever difference may exist among them, as to forms of Religion, or any other matter, it is deemed good policy that the youth, . . . be brought together at Public Schools of Education at an early period of Life." Unity and fellowship, he repeatedly maintained, were urgent goals in a young colony that had experienced foreign invasion, bitter political and religious feuding, and armed insurrection.

Crooks remained active in business until the early 1850s, by which time water supplies at Crooks' Hollow had diminished and industrial competition in the region had increased substantially, largely as a result of railway development. In 1851 Crooks's complex contained four mills, a clothing works, distillery, tannery, cooperage, and machine-shop. Later that year, however, at the age of 73, he sold both his paper-mill and his mills at Crooks' Rapids. In 1860 he died at his home in Crooks' Hollow. All that remains of his once mighty commercial estate on Spencer Creek is the skeletal ruin of a solitary grist-mill.

9085 Died in Galt Hospital

A well-known and highly respected resident of the town, passed away at the hospital, Sunday morning, at 6.30 o'clock, in the person of Mrs. Flaherty, wife of Jos. Flaherty, Maple Street. The deceased, who was a daughter of the late Wm. Crowe, was born in Paisley, Scotland, in the year 1859. When about five years of age she, with three brothers and three sisters, came with her parents to Canada, the family finally settling in Garafraxa Township. At Fergus, in 1878, the deceased lady was married to her surviving husband, and shortly afterwards they took up their residence at Belwood. Some five years later, Mr. and Mrs. Flaherty, removed to Galt, which continued to be the deceased's home, until her death. Since coming to town the deceased lady had made many friends who will learn with unfeigned sorrow of her demise. Three little girls, Ethel, Daisy and Lily, of whom the eldest is 12 years old and an infant son, 18 months of age, survive a loving and affectionate mother. The illness which resulted in this well-known lady's death, was of fourteen weeks duration and was of the most painful and distressing nature. The malady first took the form of inflammatory rheumatism, but some days prior to her demise it developed into sciatica. After suffering untold agony, the sufferer was at last released from pain, as when the disease reached the brain, the grim reaper appeared and claimed the patient for his own. The deceased, some two years ago, was ailing for a number of weeks, with rheumatism, but after recovering from that attack, did not suffer from any any illness, until this last fatal trouble. The father of the deceased has been dead for some years, but the mother still survives and resides with a daughter, in Garafraxa. Three brothers and two sisters, are also living, Mr. John Crowe. Montana, William, Niagara, N.Y., Robert, Highlandville, Mass., Mrs. George Bayne,.Eramosa, and Mrs. Andrew Bayne, East Garafraxa. The late Mrs. Flaherty was an earnest and valued member of the Methodist church.

Dr. J. B. Crozier


DR. JOHN BEATTIE CROZIER (born at Galt, Canada, on April 23, 1849; died in London on January 8) was a thinker who knew how to combine philosophic breadth with scientific substance. His first master in speculative thought was Herbert Spencer, but he soon began to deviate from what he took to be the materialistic outcome of Spencer's psychology. The fault he found was that Spencer, in investigating mind, failed to view it adequately except from the objective side, as correlated with the brain and nervous system. This correlation itself Crozier accepted in the most thoroughgoing way; but, as the body is an organic unity, so also, he held, must the mind be unitary; and, by introspection, he found a "scale in the mind," not unlike that of the Platonic psychology, though it was for him an independent discovery. In this scale, truth, beauty, and love are at the top; such feelings as honour, ambition, and self-respect in the middle; and such qualities as greed and, in general, animal appetite at the bottom. This led Crozier to a metaphysical doctrine (though he was inclined to repudiate the term metaphysics) according to which the higher attributes of mind are superior not only in quality, but also, correspondingly, in ultimate strength.

9108 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, 1972.1

9115 New Schmidt Woods trail now open in Wilmot

Wilmot residents now have a new three-kilometre trail to walk, hike and cycle on - and with winter edging closer, it will soon be open to snowmobilers, too.

The Schmidt Woods trail opened Oct. 5, and runs from the northwest corner of the Wilmot Recreation Complex (at the Nafziger Road entrance) to the east end of the property, eventually connecting paved bike lanes at Gingerich Road.

About two kilometres of the trail has a compacted stone dust multi-purpose surface. The remaining kilometre is a natural ground hiking trail, which leads through the forest surrounding the Rec Complex.

The lands for the trails were donated to Wilmot Township by the Schmidt Estate as a tribute to the memory of Harold and Enid Schmidt's contributions to both Baden and the township.

The $257,000 construction, funded in part through the CIP 150 grant program, ended up costing less than anticipated.

A full trail map can be found on the township's website, www.wilmot.ca.

9120 Miss Elizabeth Cumming

Death removed from our midst yesterday afternoon of Miss Elizabeth Cumming, who died at the residence of her sister, Mrs. Alex. Greig, after a prolonged illness. Miss Cumming has been an invalid for over a year, suffering from that dread disease consumption. Being a zealous Christian, she bore her trouble without a murmur and at all times looking to her Heavenly Father for assistance. Miss Cumming was very popular with a large circle of friends, in Preston as well as Galt, where she at one time resided and kind and loving friends were constantly at her bedside during the period of her illness. She was a devoted member of the Presbyterian church here and the useful and exemplary life that she has lived will doubtless lead others to the path of righteousness. She was also an active member of the Ladies Aid Society, where her services were always valuable. Being possessed of a kind and loving heart, always ready to bestow charity, her demise will be generally regretted. Miss Cumming was a native of Scotland, having been born in Hawick, Roxboroughshire, in 1845, consequently she was 51 years of age. She came to Canada in 1859 and for many years made Galt her home. She was engaged in the fancy goods business for eight years and became widely known in that capacity. Christian fortitude has always characterized her illness and she expressed a willingness to die. Deceased has a brother residing in Sherbrooke, Que. The funeral takes place tomorrow afternoon, at 4 o'clock and will proceed to the Preston cemetery.

Margaret Hazel (Cumming) Bolender

In Loving Memory of Margaret Hazel (Cumming) Bolender

Margaret was born July 23, 1921. She was the youngest of four children. Her brother Wallace was most disgusted to have another sister and offered to give her away to his uncle who had only one son. In April 1944 Margaret married Lorne Bolender and moved to a farm in what is now Floradale, where she lived until 2008. They had three children, Nadine, Grant and Christine. Unfortunately, Margaret became a widow in 1961 and her son Grant passed away in 1963 from leukemia. She was a multi-tasker even before the phrase became popular, as she balanced chores, making meals, doing laundry, gardening, sewing, putting down preserves, playing her piano, attending church and family functions, and her life-long involvement in her community.

Margaret was a devoted mother, wife, sister, aunt and friend, but her real love was her grandchildren. Brenda, Jamie and Jason could always put a smile on her face when they walked in the room. Her great-granddaughter, Brenna, looked forward to visiting so the two of them could sit together and play the piano and read. Margaret was a teacher, both before her children were born and after. She started in one-room schoolhouses teaching grades 1 to 9. When she returned to teaching in 1958, she taught close to home in North Woolwich and then in the new Floradale school. Always working on her education, which she never stopped doing her entire life, she took classes in Toronto to obtain her Librarian-Teacher Certification and attended Wilfrid Laurier University where she earned her B. A. in 1975. She retired from the school board in 1982 after working at Floradale, Three Bridges, Heidelberg, and finally John Mahood School in Elmira.

Margaret must have had an explorer gene, since she took great pleasure in travelling the world and of course that included Canada. She travelled both east and west with her family and in her retirement she went to Japan, Europe, Alaska and Great Britain. She planned trips with family and friends, and would always have an itinerary of places to go and see all along the way. She was very involved in her community, and was recognized for her hard work and dedication to all of her pursuits. She was a long-time member of the United Church of Canada and worshiped in St. Jacobs and Elmira. Not content to be just a member, she was also active in the UCW. Her week did not start until she had attended Sunday Services.

Some of her many accomplishments over her lifetime included her involvement in the Elmira Agricultural Society. She was an exhibitor, joined the ladies division as a directory where she held several positions, and moved on to the Fair Board and became the first woman President of the Elmira Ag Society. She was granted a life membership after more than 35 years of service. She was an avid gardener and as a member of the Horticultural Society was responsible for the planning and planting of the Butterfly Garden at the Library in Elmira. Education was a part of her life and through that she became a very respected judge and Master Gardener in 1987. She was also a life member of the Horticultural Society, an honour bestowed on her, based on her many years of leadership and involvement in making Elmira look so nice. In later years, she was honoured to be the Oktoberfest Senior Woman of the Year in 1997 as well as being inducted into the Waterloo Region Hall of Fame in 1998 for her community service.

9125 The Free Church branch, having no church building, held their services in the stone schoolhouse, now part of the residence of Mrs. Andrew Brown. The summer services were conducted largely by students of Knox College. Probably the winter services were carried on by themselves. I am told that Mr. Wm. Gerrie, Sr., was a good preacher and Mr. George (Sheriff) Davidson also belonged to that party. The Free Church building, known latterly as "the lecture room", was built in 1848 by William Mitchell as carpenter and George Cummings as mason. The deed for the lot was given by G. Davidson to William Mitchell, George Cummings, and Jas. Adamson, as trustees for the congregation, on the eighth day of March, 1852, for the sum of five shillings currency (about one dollar of our money). This was the first piece of real estate that became the possession of either congregation.

In those days the water of the Grand River was kept at work more than it is to-day in proportion to the town's needs now. Its waters run on, still willing to drive thousands of spindles or wheels. The requirements of the town for a water service have been made complete by a water works system, supplying an abundance for every purpose and of the purest and best spring water. The water supply being plentiful, the streets well supplied with hydrants, a fire has very little chance of gaining much headway. The town has a well-equipped fire brigade. The department is headed by Mr. James Curliss as Chief, who, night or day, on the first tap of the bell, is on hand, guiding his brigade behind his charger helmeted in regulation fire-fighting style.

Died in the North West

We sincerely regret to have to record the death at Calgary, N.W.T., on Saturday last, of a young man well-known and highly esteemed in this village and country, in the person of Albert John Currie, second son of Mr. Wm. Currie of Ayr, aged 25 years. The deceased went to the Northwest last spring and engaged in ranching with his brother Fred, who had preceded him some two years. They were doing well and intended becoming permanent settlers. Some three weeks ago, however, Albert contracted typhoid fever and was taken to the Calgary hospital, where he received every attention possible, being visited almost daily by his brother and an aunt, Miss Jane Little, who resided in Calgary. He continued to grow worse, however, and on Saturday passed away somewhat suddenly. The body was brought here for interment, accompanied by deceased's brother, and the funeral takes place to Ayr cemetery this (Thursday) afternoon. Albert John was an exemplary young man and a host of friends in and about Ayr, his birthplace, will deeply regret his demise. The father, sisters and brother who survive - his mother having predeceased him some 2-1/2 years - will have the sympathy of the entire community. One sister, Isabella, resides in Winnipeg, Jane in Galt and Agnes at home. The funeral takes place at 2.30 from the residence of deceased's uncle, Mr. John Currie, and will doubtless be largely attended.

9170 CURRIE, John - LIVED UPWARDS OF 90 YEARS IN THIS COMMUNITY - This week we have to chronicle the passing of the oldest resident of the community in the person of John Currie, who died at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. Robert Smuck, Paris Road, on Monday, June 20th, at the ripe age of over 95 years. The deceased was born in Roxboroughshire, Scotland, and came to Canada at the age of four years, settling on the farm now occupied by Mr. Stephen Gemmell, afterwards locating at different periods on several other farms in the locality. Over 40 years ago Mr. Currie discontinued farming and moved into Ayr, where he started a coal yard, being the first coal merchant in the village. During the time he was farming, he also did a lot of teaming between here and Hamilton, and other points from lake to lake. To have lived upwards of 90 years in one community falls to the lot of few men. The changes he witnessed in that long period can probably be better imagined than described. Suffice it that in his early days the country was in a crude state. There were no railroads and in fact very few and very indifferent roads of any kind. The forests were rendezvous of Indians, wolves, bears and highway men, and the whole county was passing through the throes of a rebellion. He successfully weathered all these adverse conditions and prospered as the country developed.

Passing of John Currie
Lived Upwards of 90 Years in This Community

This week we have to chronicle the passing of the oldest resident of the community in the person of John Currie, who died at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. Robert Smuck, Paris Road, on Monday, June 20th, at the ripe age of over 95 years. The deceased was born in Roxboroughshire, Scotland, and came to Canada at the age of four years, settling on the farm now occupied by Mr. Stephen Gemmell, afterwards locating at different periods on several other farms in the locality.

Over 40 years ago Mr. Currie discontinued farming and moved into Ayr, where he started a coal yard, being the first coal merchant in the village. During the time he was farming, he also did a lot of teaming between here and Hamilton, and other points from lake to lake.

To have lived upwards of 90 years in one community falls to the lot of few men. The changes he witnessed in that long period can probably be better imagined than described. Suffice it that in his early days the country was in a crude state. There were no railroads and in fact very few and very indifferent roads of any kind. The forests were the rendezvous of Indians, wolves, bears and highway men, and the whole country was passing through the throes of a rebellion. He successfully weathered all these adverse conditions and prospered as the country developed.

Mr. Currie was a Reformer in politics and a Presbyterian in religion, being a member of Knox United Church. His partner in life was Agnes Pringle, who predeceased him some years. A family of five were born to them - two of whom, Isabell and William, have passed on before.

Those living are Mrs. Geo. Swan, sr., Ayr; Mrs. Margaret Bell, Galt; and Mrs. Robert Smuck, South Dumfries. A brother and sister, Peter Currie and Mrs. Christie (Toronto), also survive. Interment was made in the Ayr cemetery yesterday, the funeral being very largely attended. Rev. J. J. Brown conducted the services, and the pallbearers were principally grandchildren, viz., Currie Smuck, John, Ewart and James Bell, Robert Smuck and George H. Lawrence.

9187 Anne Curtis Bowman, Jan. 28, 1846-April 7, 1906
Partly based on details from an unpublished manuscript by Eunice Darvill

Annie Curtis Bowman


Anne Bondfield Curtis was born on Jan. 28, 1846, in Belleville, New Jersey, the second youngest of six children. Her parents were M. Mellville Curtis, mill owner, and Sophia Louisa Allsopp, daughter of Robert Allsopp, Commissary General and prominent landowner at Quebec, Canada. Around 1862, life changed greatly for all the Curtis children with the death of their father after a lingering illness, which diminished their financial resources.

In 1868, Annie traveled west with her mother and her sister Sallie, with whom she would remain close the rest of her life. They joined her older brother and sister. Brother Allen was a mining superintendent in Austin, Nevada. The younger sisters settled with sister Lucretia and her husband, William Carpenter, near Marysville, California. Annie soon met Amos Bowman there through her brother-in-law. Annie and Sallie later moved to Austin to join their brother but she returned in April 1871 to marry Amos Bowman in Smartsville, California. Soon after their marriage, Annie traveled back to the northeast with family and visited Amos's parents along with her own relatives. Those visits also included itinerary to Canada and Cap Sante near Quebec especially impressed her, a name that she tucked away for future reference.

After returning home to Amos at their San Francisco home, Annie gave birth to Wendell Cortez Bowman in 1873, so we can see the early favor of the Spanish Cortez name, possibly due to friendship with Spaniards on the sailing trip back east. He was followed by Clytie Lucretia in 1874. After work with the geological survey in California, Amos traveled to Seattle for another geological survey for railroad interests in Washington territory. While there, Amos combed through the archives of Northern Pacific and discovered the company's interest in Fidalgo island as a possible West Coast terminus. Annie joined Amos in time for Bondfield (Ben) to be born in Seattle on Dec. 4, 1876. In the following year they all moved to a small village named Ship Harbor on Fidalgo island. Annie quickly impressed the handful of families living around the island and they agreed with her husband who named a new town Anacortes, derived from her name and Cortez, which fit in with the original Spanish names for landmarks in the area. They named their new home Cap Sante from Annie's contact in Quebec.

Although Anacortes was largely wilderness and remote, the cosmopolitan and educated Annie set about to support her husband's plan for a future metropolis. They were soon joined by her sister Sallie, who mar-ried Dr. T.B. Childs. The honeymooners moved back to Austin, Nevada for a few years but later returned to Fidalgo. Annie's younger brother Melville also joined them in the late 1880s when Anacortes was planning for the railroad and boom times. Annie tended to the family during the 1880s when the local economy lagged and Amos was called away often for geological contracts south of the border and in British Columbia and when he traveled and researched with author Hubert Howe Bancroft.

Finally, after 12 years of patient waiting and preparation, the Bowmans's vision finally blossomed in 1889-91 as the Seattle & Northern railroad was built from Ship Harbor to Woolley and various railroad interests boomed Anacortes as a classic example of frontier railroad/real estate promotion. Original settlers made small fortunes from their original homesteads and dozens of substantial buildings and homes sprung up on more than two-dozen plats. But, as with Sedro and Woolley to the east, the railroad boom was brief. James J. Hill of the Great Northern railroad overtook Northern Pacific and built the main north-south rail line and S&N became a spur line. Then a depressed economy began setting in locally in 1892 and a full-blown nationwide depression dried up capital from 1893-96. But worse for Annie was the death of Amos on June 18, 1894, and his doubts in his own success in his last years. Annie's brothers proved to be better businessmen.

Annie could no longer live in Anacortes. She soon moved the children to Sumas, Washington, on the Canadian border, and although they returned for visits with family and friends, Anacortes - her name-sake city, would never be home again. As if grief over Amos wasn't bad enough, Annie's son Ben attended the University of California at Berkeley to study mining engineering with his cousin Harold Childs and while there he contracted a spinal illness and Annie went to California to care for him. After Annie died from a heart attack in California in April 1906, with Sallie by her side, her body was returned to Anacortes and she was buried next to Amos.

His early days were passed on the farm and in the school room, and when nineteen years of age he started out to make his own way in life. As he had been reared to farming, it was but natural perhaps that he should choose that as his occupation in life, and he engaged in tilling the soil on his father's place. Later he moved to another county, resided there for eight years, and then returned to this county, where he settled in Union township or a farm of 208 acres. He has now resided on this place for about thirteen years, and it is one of the best improved places in the county, and the largest tract owned in the township. Farming and stockraising have been his chief occupation, and he has met with good success. For sixteen years Mr. Curtis has been a member of the Mennonite Brethren in Christ, and for the past eight or nine years he has been preaching, part of the time in Michigan, where he now has a charge. He devoted a large part of his time to the church, and hopes in the future to devote his entire time to the good work. In politics Mr. Curtis is a Republican, and is deeply interested in the affairs of his State and country, particularly in educational matters. He was married in June, 1869, to Miss Leah Blosser, a native of Mahoning county, Ohio, born November 27, 1850, and one of eight children born to Reuben and Barbara (Metsler) Blosser. Her brothers and sisters were named as follows: John, Tobias, Abraham, Peter, Elizabeth, Samuel, Scotland Noah. All but John, Tobias and Samuel, are still living. When fifteen years of age Mrs. Curtis went to Canada with her mother, her father having died many years before, and settled on a farm. In 1869 she was married to Mr. Curtis. She was a member of the Mennonite Church, and died on January 25, 1879, leaving four children: Lucinda, who was born in 1870, and who is now the wife of Samuel Hoover, of Harrison township, and the mother of one child, Armilla, who was born December 3, 1891; Ella, who was born August 22, 1871, and is now in Chicago; Joseph, born June 3, 1873, is at home; and Barbara, born May 22, 1877, is at home. Mr. Curtis was married September 22, 18-- , to Miss Rebecca Blosser. a cousin of his first wife, and a daughter of Peter and Mary A. (Reed) Blosser. Mrs. Curtis was born October 27, 1850, in Mahoning county, Ohio, and was one of three children, the others being Amos and Susan. She came to this county with her parents about forty years ago, and her father died in 1855 or 1860. To Mr. and Mrs. Curtis have been born six children, as follows: Viola, born October 8, 1882; Eva C, born February 14, 1884; Otho, born February 12, 1886; Ruel M., born September 20, 1889; and a boy baby, born June 4, 1892. Mr. and Mrs. Curtis are among the representative citizens of the county and are highly esteemed by all.

9192 NEW LAND REGISTRY RECORDS: WATERLOO NORTH
by Brenda Merriman

An "unheralded" discovery in Record Group 61 at the Ontario Archives (AO) has been catalogued there in a finding aid called Preliminary Inventory of Property Rights Registration, RG 61. First let me say that this finding aid is an attempt by AO to catalogue everything in their institution that relates to local county land registry offices. This includes not only original material, but also microfilm copies that the LS Church made yeas go in those registry offices, and copybooks of deeds.

Original copybooks of deeds have been and will continue to be distributed from the custody of AO to regional libraries (e.g. those for Waterloo County at the University of Waterloo; for Wellington County at the University of Guelph. We have hard some details about this in earlier issues of Branch Notes.) It is perhaps unclear to many people that microfilmed copies of these copybooks for all counties have been available for searching for years past at AO. County copybooks generally ended in 1847 when property registration started to become recorded in township copybooks. However, just to confuse the issue, some township copybooks refer to deeds made much earlier than 1847.

What Ryan Taylor's eagle eye spotted in an article by Ian Wilson, Archivist of Ontario, was a reference to many original unregistered documents of the Waterloo North Land Registry Office. Upon investigation with some aid from Richard Ramsay, the Archivist in charge of land registry office collections, I had a look at a box (#3) stuffed with these documents which had not gone through the relatively expensive legal process of registration, but had been stored at the office.

As just a small example of the content, the first document in Box 3 was dated 19 March 1830, a sale by Jacob ERB Sr. to Samuel BOWERS (both of Waterloo Township) of part of lot 20 concession 3 for the construction of a sawmill and pond. An apprenticeship document was dated 11 Oct 1834 whereby George McCONNELL of Berlin agreed to work for and serve Gad CURTIS, potter in Berlin, for a period of one year......1

_______________________________

Clanden K. Curtis, a substantial farmer of Union township, Elkhart Co., Ind., resides in the northeastern part of the township, eight and one-half miles from Goshen, where he receives his mail. He was born in Canada West, or Ontario, July 27, 1850, and was the eldest son born to B. S. and Elizabeth (Kopland) Curtis. B. S. Curtis was a native of Orange county, N. Y., born May 20. 1815, and the son of Gad and Mary (Hitchcock) Curtis. Gad Curtis was a New Yorker by birth, born March. 1791, and was reared and married in his native State. Soon after his marriage he went to Canada, and reared a family of children, five of whom were boys, viz. : Burtin S. ; Clanden; Julia, who married a Mr. Jacob Wismer; Gad; Milin; Margaret and Moses. Of these children our subject's father was the eldest.

The Curtis family is of English origin. Gad Curtis served in the War of 1812, and lived to a good old age, passing away in 1869. He was a strong and powerful man, even in his old age. His wife was a New York lady, and she, too. lived to an advanced age. The family emigrated to Canada at an early day and there the children grew up, married, and scattered. The second son. Clanden. became a minister of the Evangelical Association. He has reared a family, and still lives in New York State. Julia is a member of the Church of England. B. S. Curtis, father of subject, was married in Canada, and there made his home until 1857. He was a potter by trade. While a resident of Canada he was quite prominent in politics, was justice of the peace for about twelve years, and held other local positions.

In 1857 he emigrated to Olive township, Elkhart Co., Ind., and settled on a farm of 100 acres which was partly improved. Previous to this, in 1845, while residing in Canada, he became a minister of the Gospel, and was active in this noble work for twenty years. In the year 1864 he enlisted as chaplain of the One Hundred and Forty-second Indiana, and remained with that regiment until the close of the war. He was in a number of prominent engagements, and served his country faithfully. Returning from the war, he turned his attention to the improvement of his farm. He also carried on his ministerial duties for a number of years. After residing in Elkhart county, Ind. , for twenty-two years, he passed to his final reward on October 20, 1886. In politics he was a "black Abolitionist," bitter against slavery, and a firm believer in the rights of the negro to have freedom.

After coming to this country he held no public offices, but was ever a public-spirited man, interested in educational as well as religious affairs. Socially he was a Master Mason. In 1880 he left Elkhart county, went to La Grange county, this State, and later to Reed City, Mich., where he died. He was a man of some property and was generous and free hearted, giving freely of his means to support all good enterprises. His wife was a native of Canada, and the eldest of four children born to Mr. Kupland, the other children being Elizabeth, Susan and Levi. Her death occurred in 1885. Mr. and Mrs. Curtis were the parents of seven children, two dying when small; Clara, now Mrs. Frank; Freedman; Susan died when small; Leah, married Joseph Musser, and they make their home in Harrison township, this county; Elizabeth, married and resides in Van Buren county, Mich., on a farm (she has a family); Berton, died when a small boy; Clanden (subject), and Julia. The latter resides in Branch county, Mich., and married Adam Heltzel, a farmer. They have a family. Clanden K. Curtis remained in Canada until seven years of age, and then came with his parents to Indiana.

His early days were passed on the farm and in the school room, and when nineteen years of age he started out to make his own way in life.

She was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., came to Indiana when she was 13 years old. She had been in feeble health for the last six months or more, but not seriously ill. Shortly after going to bed the evening before she died she was stricken with paralysis and was unconscious till death relieved her at 5:30 A.M. How brittle the thread of life is! She was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church. The funeral and burial took place on the 13th at Yellow Creek, where a large number of relatives and friends met to pay the last tribute of respect to a loved one. She leaves a sorrowing husband, one daughter, six grand-children, one brother and three sisters. One daughter preceded her to the spirit world, about 20 months ago. Funeral services were conducted by Martin Ramer, J.W. Martin and Christian Shaum.

Dearest mother, thou hast left us,
Here thy loss we deeply feel;
But 'tis God that hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
Yet again we hope to meet thee
When the day of life is fled;
Then in heaven with joy to greet thee
Where no farewell tear is shed.
Selected by the Daughter.

In the year 1828, Hiram Capron, who was originally from Vermont, sold out his interest in the Long Point Blast Furnace, and came to the Forks of the Grand River. He bought 1, 000 acres of land for $10, 000 from Squire Holmes, who resided within three miles of Brantford, and commenced clearing and cultivating the land. In 1820, a millwright named Josiah Cushman was brought by Mr. Capron from Buffalo, to build a mill, which, when completed, had two run of stones, one for gristing, the other for grinding plaster, of which there was plenty almost on the surface of the ground. Cushman recommended one Elias Conklin as a suitable person to manage the estate; Conklin was written to, but would not come at less than $16 per month and board (!) This was accepted, but at the end of one year, Conklin leased the mill from Capron, and became a very active business man; he dug plaster and ground it, started a brick-yard, burnt lime, built a saw mill, and made considerable lumber. Saw-logs were floated down Smith's creek, but they wouldn't buy any in those days unless over 22 inches diameter, and from that size up to 3 feet 6 inches, the price was 50c. each! Conklin ultimately sold out, and went to a farm in Dumfries..1a

9202 David Cuthbertson Prominent Ayr Resident Passes In His 66th Year

Following an illness of many years duration, the death occurred at his home on Main street Saturday night of David Cuthbertson, in his 66th year. The deceased had been practically an invalid for the greater part of his life, and much of the comfort and pleasure enjoyed by the most of us were denied him.

Born in Ayr s son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Cuthbertson, he had spent the greater portion of his lifetime in this village where he was highly esteemed by a wide circle of friends and business acquaintances. While not active in municipal and public affairs generally, he was always deeply concerned and intensely interested in everything pertaining to the welfare of his native village.

The late Mr. Cuthbertson was a tailor by trade, having served his apprenticeship with the late Thomas Anderson. Following several years in Woodstock and Stratford, he conducted his own establishment here on the site now occupied by the public library. When the old block of buildings was dismantled some 26 years ago, he removed his business to his residence at Jedburgh. He had been living in semi-retirement for some years past, however.

The deceased was a member of Dolman Lodge, I.O.O.F., and a member of the former Stanley Street Church, later affiliating with Knox United Church at the time of union. He was a member of the local bowling club for some years while his health permitted, and also served as a member of the board of health several year ago.

Besides his widow whose maiden name was Chrissie Wilson, he is survived by three brothers, viz.: William D. of London. John of Collinsville, Ill., and Thomas D. of Toronto.

The funeral, took place to the Ayr Cemetery on Monday afternoon, was largely attended by relatives and old friends. There were many beautiful floral tributes. The services were conducted by Rev. J. W. Currie , and the pallbearers, including five nephews, were: L. L. Cuthbertson, Toronto; E. F.. Cuthbertson, Oshawa*,, J. P. Stuart, Galt, Hugh Melvin, Bert Melvin and John Henderson, Ayr.

9204 The Session Records of Chalmers Church, Winterbourne, or rather Woolwich, as it was first called, give very little information of interest to us, being mostly statements of times of holding the Communion Services. We glean a few things from them: The Rev. George Cuthbertson, a graduate of Knox College, Toronto, was called, ordained and inducted into the charge of Chalmers' Church, Woolwich, in October of 1857, but no record is given of the event in the Session Records. A new book had been purchased and date entered Oct. 1st, 1857, and a few pages left blank, probably for such an entry to be made but they remain blank and the first entry is Dec. 31st, 1857, and from the entry of Jan. 29th, 1858, we learn the members of Session were (William) Gerrie, (William) Mitchell, (John) Burnett, and (John) Glennie, along with the Moderator, Rev. George Cuthbertson. On 30th Sept, 1859, there was brought before the Session the movement for the union of the Free Church and the United Presbyterian Churches. Some objection was taken to the basis of union by the Session. Aug. 6th, 1860, Mr. John Burnett ceases to be an elder of the church.


A Few Notes on the Early History of Chalmers' Church, Winterbourne" by Rev. A. M. Hamilton, M. A.

_____________________________

Winterbourne Free Presbyterian Chalmers Presbyterian Church
Begun: 1844
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

9210 DEATH OF MR. E. L. Cutten

We learn with much regret that Mr. E. L. Cutten, formerly of Galt, passed away at Birds Hill, near Winnipeg, Manitoba, on Thursday last the 17th inst. His complaint was Bright's disease. Mr. Cutten was born at Onslow, Nova Scotia, in 1812 and was consequently in his 79th year. He came to Galt from Haysville in 1856 and kept the Queen's Arms hotel for about six years. He removed from here to Strathroy and then to the city of London, in both of which places he carried on business in his usual energetic and genial manner. His recent years have been passed on his farm at Birds Hill near Winnipeg, with an occasional visit to Banff Springs and other interesting points in the Northwest. Mr. Cutten's last visit to his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. John Cherry of Galt, was in 1887 and although old age was beginning to creep on, he seemed to preserve in a wonderful manner that sprightliness and geniality of disposition, which made him such a favorite with all who knew him. He was a man of more than average ability, a kind-hearted parent and generous and genial to everyone. When a resident of Galt, he was elected a member of the Town Council and was universally respected by the community. His relatives have the sympathy of all who knew Mr. Cutten, whose memory will long live green in the minds of numerous friends, in Galt and other parts of the Province.

9216 'Ron did this for the people he loved. He did this for us'

Before he died, Ron Cutting said he wanted his death to be used to let people know assisted dying is an option

NEWS Aug 24, 2018 by Johanna Weidner Waterloo Region Record

KITCHENER \emdash The day started like any other for Ron Cutting and Jessie Maniatacos.

Ron, up early as always, poured Jessie's orange juice and coffee, and then she joined him for a breakfast of toast with homemade jam and fresh fruit.

It was Ron's last day \emdash and both knew it.

When cancer spread to Ron's bones and treatment was no longer an option, he decided on a medically assisted death. Ron didn't want to become incapacitated and a burden on his family. He wanted to decide when he would go.

A peace came with that decision, for Ron and his family.

"Yes, it was very hard. But it was also very comforting," Jessie said. "It was on his terms."


Ron grew up in Hespeler, serving as an Air Force pilot for 26 years before becoming a police officer in Cambridge and then a respiratory therapist.

He was active and fit in retirement, looking at least a decade younger than his 83 years. His morning routine included lifting 25-pound weights.

Ron savoured food and home-cooking and never stayed up late....


He had a good autumn, but by Christmas he wasn't doing well and doctors had nothing more to offer.

Early in the new year, Ron decided to pick the day he would die \emdash comfortably at home and surrounded by the people he loved.

Jessie understood.

"He was losing his dignity. He was more dependent on me. He hated that," she said. "He was alive, but he was not living."

The date was set: April 9.

Before he died, Ron asked Jessie to be an advocate and let other people know assisted death is an option.

Most of the people she talks to about Ron's assisted death are not aware it is an available choice.....


But as the date approached, Ron's health declined rapidly and he became very worried his death would not go ahead as planned.

The law requires a patient must consent again immediately before the drugs are taken, which means they can't rely on advanced medical directives, or have someone consent on their behalf. That's a stipulation Jessie would like to see changed.

"He was petrified because he could have a stroke and this would not happen," she said.

Anxious, Ron moved the date up by two weeks.

"I think it's very brave," Jessie said. "Ron did this for the people he loved. He did this for us."

Daughter Sia said moving the date ahead was a bit of a relief because counting the days had been horrible.

The day before, Ron was feeling remarkably well. Vibrant, even. Sia joked they had trouble keeping up with him as they took a trip down memory lane that morning.

They went to his childhood neighbourhood and, from the vantage of a bridge, Ron pointed out the spot on the river where he anchored his raft to hang out and read comic books.

"Ron was very much at peace," Jessie said.


Then it was the day. Monday, March 26.

"It was just very relaxed," Jessie said. "Almost like any other day."

After breakfast, the couple sat together in the living room. Jessie asked if there was anything else Ron wanted to talk about.

But pretty much everything was already looked after. Details were settled and Ron had said his goodbyes.

He told close friends and family ahead about his plan, although he hesitated to tell the grandchildren because he worried about their reaction.

"He was able to tell everybody what he wanted to before he passed," Jessie said.

Together they had planned the celebration of his life, and Ron joked he was annoyed to miss the good spread at the gathering.....


Ron emailed and spoke on the phone with family. Sia was there along with close family friend Michelle when the doctors and nurse arrived at noon.

They set up in the living room, putting an armchair by the window for Ron and another in front for him to put up his feet. He settled in with his favourite ugly brown blanket and Jessie held his hand.

"I had put a pillow behind his head."

The medical team explained what they were doing and what to expect as the drug was administered.

Ron smiled and went to sleep. Then he was gone.

9218 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.

Three 111th Boys.

The other three casualties reported this morning are all former members of the 111th.

730,621, Pte. Ernest William Alexander Rundstaller, reported admitted to the First Field Ambulance Depot on Nov. 5th, with a gunshot wound in the right thigh and hand, is the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Rundstaller of 74 Haddington street. He is a tailor by trade, single, and a former member of the 29th Regiment.

Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Whitla, 184 Water street north, learned that their son, 730,110, Pte. David Whitla, had received a gunshot wound in the back and was a patient in the 6th General Hospital, Rouen, admitted on Oct. 31st. The wounded soldier is a brother of Lance-Corporal Wm. Whitla, who enlisted with the first battalion and who was awarded the Military Cross and who was the first Galt man to win a decoration.

The fifth casualty is 730,571, Pte. Albert Charles Spurgeon, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Sprugeon, 15 Summit avenue, who is reported in the First Field Ambulance Depot on November 6th with a shrapnel wound in the leg. The wounded soldier is only 24 years of age and was formerly employed at the C.M.C, works.

In reply to a query, Mrs. William Cyples, corner of Cambridge street and Macadamized road, was notified this morning that her husband, 730,045, Lance-Corporal Wm. Cyples, reported wounded some time ago, was doing very well at the Duchess of Connaught Red Cross Hospital.

9278 Passing of Of Au Old Resident - By the death of Mrs. Hugh Cuthbertson, which event took place at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. A. Melvin, Ayr, on July 20, the community loses one of its oldest and most highly esteemed residents. The deceased, whose maiden name was Agnes Dale, was born at Kaman, Scotland, in 1832 and was therefore in her 73rd year. In 1849 she married Mr. Cuthbertson, who predeceased her nearly seven years. They came to Canada the same year, settling in Ayr about New Year's, 1850. Fifty-five years ago the village was in its infancy and the surrounding country was principally bush land and but sparsely settled. The Paris road had not then been opened and a small Grist mill occupied the site where the big foundry now stands. Here they hewed out a home for themselves and raised a family of nine sons and two daughters - four of whom are deceased, viz., Mrs. Wm. Stuart, George, Hugh and Adam. Of the surviving members of the family William is in London, Ont.; John at Albany, Missouri; Robert, David and Mrs. A. Melvin, in Ayr; James at Vancouver, B. C., and Thomas at Aylmer, Ont. A consistent member of the Methodist church, Mrs. Cuthbertson was also an active member in her early days, occupying for some time the position of president of the Ladies' Aid Society. As a wife and mother she was exemplary in every respect and held the love and esteem of all with whom she came in contact. Up to 1887 she enjoyed excellent health, but a severe attack of typhoid fever left many ills to be combated in later years. The funeral on Saturday, July 22, was very largely attended, interment being made in the beautiful cemetery close by. The pallbearers were four sons, William, Robert, Thomas and David, and two sons-in-law, Wm. Stewart and Albert Melvin.

9287 DEATH OF ANOTHER OLD RESIDENT

The oldest residents of North Dumfries and of Galt will be pained to hear of the death of Isabella Dalgleish, relict of the late George Turnbull, which took place at 1 o'clock on Monday. The deceased was a sister of the late James Dalgleish, whose death and also that of his wife's occurred so close together a little over a year ago. Mrs. Turnbull had been in feeble health for a number of years, but was until a short time ago able to be around and her death though expected was a sore trial for the family. She was born in Ettrick, Selkirkshire, Scotland, in 1809 and came to Canada in the year 1833, accompanied by her brother Thomas. They took up land at Cedar Creek and were followed the next year by their father, mother and brother, James. The father and mother died suddenly, the same year they came out and were buried at the Cedar Creek Cemetery. The brothers and sister continued on the farm until the year 1838, when the deceased was married by Rev. James Strang of Galt to George Turnbull, a school teacher in Blenheim Township. They resided in that section until 1846, when they moved to Galt, In 1862. Mr. Turnbull died and was buried in the old High Park Cemetery. Mrs. Turnbull since then has been living with her children, that were single. At the time of her death, she was in her 84th year and leaves four sons and a daughter, to mourn her, John, George and Mary at home and William and Robert in Michigan. The funeral took place on Wednesday, to Mount View Cemetery and was very largely attended.

9288 James Dalgleish was born in Yarrow, Scotland and came to Canada with his wife and parents. Settled first near Ayr, soon after the deaths of his parents came to Galt. He was a stone mason and with his brother Thomas erected many of the buildings of the town, including the John Davidson house at 63 Grand River, Wesley United church. A deeply religious man he was one of the leaders of the formation of the United Presbyterian Church in 1857.

Cambridge Mosiac, Jim Quantrell, 1998, City of Cambridge [abbreviated snippet from original text in book]

______________________

MR. JAMES DALGLIESH, was one of the first members of the congregation and also one of the first Elders, a position he held honorably all the rest of his life. He was also Clerk of the Session during that entire period, except a year or so at the beginning when Mr. Adam Ker made the record.

The Session records for over thirty years are his best monument. There they are, in his neat handwriting, in their precise phraseology, in their scrupulously clean pages, in their faithful adherence to fact, revealing the character of the man. He was upright, genuine, true, godly and devout, with a high sense of the importance of his office, and seeking to fulfil its duties as to the Lord. He was always in his place at church on the Lord's Day, and also in the weekly prayer-meeting. And when he prayed, his prayers were reverent and full of unction, scriptural and large in compass, rich with the grand sentiments of the old theology, and often picturesque in their quaintness.

To one unaccustomed to his style of composition they seemed disjointed, and lacking in connection and clearness, but when one grew acquainted with that they became a stream that caught one s heart and carried him onward into a season of true devotion. The Rev. Dr. John King, once writing me from Winnipeg, expressed his confidence in Mr. Dalgliesh and his appreciation of him in the highest terms. His memory of him had remained fresh through more than a quarter of a century. Trained as he had been in the theology of the Westminster Standards, he had very definite conceptions of doctrine. He did not believe in loose notions that swing like a pendulum to both extremes. He held to the New Testament teaching that the way of life is a narrow way, that it does not permit a man to do as he will, except his will coincide with God's will. He stood, therefore, for sound scriptural teaching, and the fear of God was ever before his eyes. And the fruits of that fear were manifest in his reticence on religious subjects. He thought much and he said little. He had a dread of talking, that had nothing behind it in the shape of deep conviction and living spiritual reality. He therefore preferred that the strength of his conviction should go into his life rather than into his lips. He, in his quiet, unobtrusive, clean and true life embodied the religion he professed. His presence was felt rather than heard; and when he did speak his words were forceful and effective. He was generous in his nature. In the early days of the congregation he is noted in the church account; "Mr. Ormiston (afterwards Dr. Ormiston) paid by Mr. Dalgliesh." That was for his services on the Sabbath Day, and that occurred frequently. He was a most unworldy man.

He was by trade a stonemason, and erected many of the best buildings of the town and neighboring country, doing for them the work of architect as well as builder. Of him we may say, as Thomas Carlyle said of his father, who was of the same craft: " I shall look on the houses he built with a certain proud interest. They stand firm and sound to the heart all over his little district. No one that comes after him will ever say: Here was the finger of a hollow eye-servant"

When he died a well-known figure in Galt passed away and left the community poorer, because it had lost his presence and his strong uplifting influence.

His wife must not be overlooked. She was always of interest to the people of Galt, as well as to visitors to the town, because of her relation to James Hogg, the poet of the Yarrow the famous Ettrick Shepherd who occupies no mean place in the " Noctes Ambrosianae " of Christopher North. She was James Hogg s niece, and, no doubt, did not forget that fact, but notwithstanding that she was very modest, very quiet and very contented. Composure dwelt upon her face, and peace reigned in her heart Her life was spent amid the sanctities of the home, ministering to her husband and children. Sustained by the precious Truth she had learned early in her youth, she passed the time of her sojourn here in fear. And when the end came to them it was only a few hours apart fellow-travellers in life, in death they were not divided.

_____________

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

9290 OBITUARY - Another old settler whose death we record today has passed away in the person of Mary Dalgliesh, sister of the Messrs. Dalgliesh, of Galt. The subject of our notice emigrated with several junior members of the family from the vale of Yarrow, Selkirkshire, Scotland, in the year 1833. Arriving in Canada with a younger sister, she stayed for a season in Montreal as a domestic in the mause of the Revd. Mr. Black, Minister of the Scotch Kirk. The following season she removed to Galt, and its neighbourhood, where she continued to make her home for the most part of her allotted time in the western world. Possessed of no ordinary vigor and being very skillful as a cook, she was quite an acquisition to our young country and successfully filled places where her skill was brought into activity - such as in the cookery department of Osgood Hall, Toronto, where at that period the young members of the bar lodged. As a later period she filed the position of house keeper to the late William Dickson, Esq., of Galt, for the period of thirteen years, or until that gentleman broke up housekeeping in order to visit Europe. In later years, as age began to tell upon her vigorous frame, she had to withdraw from filling situations where large demands were made upon the energies. The extraordinary industry that she ever manifested enabled her to do much for the help of others, and her liberality in this respect was to a fault. In bringing our notice to a close, we may say that she suffered for some time before her death very much, bearing it all with Christian fortitude. She was buried on Saturday in Galt Cemetery.

9291 MR. THOMAS DALGLIESH was the brother of James Dalgliesh, but not so prominent in the activities of church life as he was. James, being Session Clerk and Representative Elder, was thrown more into the stream of public life, and lived more in the eye of the church. But Thomas was no less a strong man of marked personality. He was a member of the congregation from the beginning, and an Elder from March, 1858, till his death, fulfilling all the duties of the office with faithfulness to the church and honor and praise to himself. He was a fine example of the Christian of former days, full of theological knowledge, well read in the history of the Church, familiar with the famous men of the past through their biographies, and cherishing the memories of bygone times as a precious possession. He was a thoughtful man and delighted in reading the best books, and Review articles of the first class, in which there was something to give the mind healthy exercise, calling forth its powers and making it strong. He loved the old divines, Boston, Erskine, Lawson and the "Marrow of Modern Divinity." He often spoke of Boston's "Crook in the Lot" approvingly. The Life of Dr. Lawson, of Selkirk, was a favorite biography. It was to him a real refreshment to converse a while on the great movements of the times, whether political or religious.

The Rev. Walter Inglis, of Ayr, calling at the manse, would often end up an interesting conversation with "Weel, I ll awa tae my auld howf " this was to Thomas Dalgliesh's, where he usually stayed when visiting Galt They were kindred spirits and loved largely the same things with the same fervor One of the distinctive notes of the old Scotch life is the unique place given to the Church and the ministry. These are not so subordinated that they lose all significance; the very opposite, they are lifted into the light and made conspicuous. They are ruling elements in the life. Hence the love for and the respect paid to the minister. Hence the truly Old Testament feeling about the house of God: " I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem." Often I have heard Mr. Dalgliesh speak of the time he went to church in the early days, near Ayr, and sat on rough boards set on the ends of logs, and no stove heating the house, even in the midst of winter. Yet, he affirmed, they never felt cold. Ah, I imagine it was a case like that recorded in the Gospel: Did not our hearts burn within us, while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened to us the Scriptures ?" The Word was precious in those days. It was heard only occasionally and was greatly desired and prized. He would often, too, compare the former days with these latter ones and mark the changes that had come. The rise of temperance feeling he thought specially significant. "I have seen a pail full of whiskey in the grocery store, and at the end of the rigs on the field that was being harvested, and at a barn raising. I have seen it stand there with a tin cup to dip it out with and take a drink, and nobody thought anything of it then; but now that has gone. It could hardly be done now. Ah, sir, the world moves! "And no doubt it does. But how long shall men be under the necessity of fighting that blighting curse, the drink traffic, ere it is driven from the earth? How long?

Mr. Dalgliesh had lived a toilsome life and when sickness came it quickly subdued the once powerful frame and laid him low. He sank slowly, growing gradually weaker till he slept his last sleep, and a good man was missed from among us.

9296 G. S. Dalrymple

Gordon Sutherland (Dal) Dalrymple, prominent in Ayr's business and social life for over half a century, passed away at Brantford General Hospital on Sunday April 11 1993. He was in his 92nd year. Born in North Dakota , he was a son of the late George Dalrymple and Esther Sutherland. Ile was employed as a young man by the CPR and arrived in Ayr in 1918 from London, assuming the position of assistant station agent. His pay at that time, he recalled in an Ayr News article was $45 a month for a 12 hour day, working usually seven days a week. In 1925 Dal married Hazel Cassady and shortly thereafter was transferred by CP to Guelph, then London and Thamesford before coming back to Ayr in 1927. In 1929 the Dalryinples purchased the former Methodist parsonage on Piper Street where they resided their entire married lives. Dal sold the home in 1987 and moved to Teller Place, Paris. As the Depression deepened in 1930, Dal found himself laid off from CPR. He did a number of odd jobs until 1931 when he established the Dalrymple Insurance business which continues to operate in Ayr today. As a sideline to the insurance business he drew up wills and handled estates, clerked auction sales and served as Ayr village clerk from 1946 to 1957. He sat on the board of Knox United Church for a number of years and was an Ayr Public School Board trustee from 1931 to 1946 a number of these years as secretary-treasurer. Dal was instrumental in helping organize the Ayr 150th anniversary celebrations in 1974 and served as committee treasurer. Sports played an important part in his life as did the Masonic Lodge. He enjoyed playing hockey and later served as an executive member with both men's and minor teams in Ayr, having been a past president and life member of the Ayr Minor Hockey Association. He was one of the few members of Ayr Curling Club to be made a life member. He was among a group of guarantors who oversaw the building of the present curling club. Hunting and lawn bowling were also favorite pastimes. He served in several capacities with Ayr Masonic Lodge, which made him a life member, was district deputy grand master in 1949 and made a life member of the Grand Lodge of' Ontario.

9300 Demolition of downtown Kitchener building reveals former Red and White grocery store

Waterloo Region Record y Terry Pender

KITCHENER \emdash The pile of bricks at King and Cedar streets is all that remains of single-storey commercial building with a long history in the downtown's east end.

Workers will demolish everything but the foundation because the Toronto-based owner of the property wants to rebuild on the site, said Mike Seiling, the head of the city's building department.

In 2012, St. Clair Appliance closed up shop and sold the building. The appliance business had been operating out of that building since about 1967.

Before that the building was the home for Daly's Grocery. Leo Daly opened the store in 1935 as a Red and White, a chain backed by National Grocers. Demolition workers exposed the red and white checkerboard tiles that decorated the end of the building that fronted on King Street East, and ran along part of the Cedar Street side as well....

WATERLOO REGION Glenn Bauman will stand trial on first-degree murder in the deaths of his common-law wife and her teenage daughter.

9339 Carl Dare built a lasting Canadian food company


KITCHENER A man of boundless optimism whose life began in tragedy but who rose to build a Canadian food industry success story, Carl Merner Dare died Wednesday at the age of 96.

Dare is credited with saving and modernizing Dare Foods Ltd., a cookie and snack foods business he inherited from his grandfather, Charles Henry Doerr, who founded the company in 1892.

The struggling business burned to the ground in 1943, when it was the C.H. Doerr Co. on Weber and Breithaupt Streets in Kitchener.

But Carl Dare (whose family name changed from Doerr to Dare to make it easier to pronounce) rebuilt and led Dare Foods for decades. It became one of the few sizeable Canadian food companies to survive the massive consolidation of the North American food industry.....

Carl Merner Dare 1917 - 2014 Carl Merner Dare passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 9 at the age of 96, having lived a very happy and full life. C.M. was a creative and successful businessman who was at the same time a very kind and decent person. The Doerr Biscuit Company was started by C.M.'s grandfather in 1892. Following the untimely deaths of his parents, Webourne and Irene Doerr, in the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918, he was raised by his grandparents. C.M. joined the company in 1933, when he was 16, and became sole owner-operator in 1941 at the age of 24, shortly before a devastating fire burned the Doerr plant to the ground. Even without the fire, the Doerr Company had been struggling to survive for years, as a result of the Depression and the Second World War, and it is a tribute to C.M.'s leadership and vision that he managed to rebuild the moribund business into what is now known as Dare Foods (having anglicized the name in 1945). The company went on to become one of Canada's foremost snack food manufacturers. One of C.M.'s strongest characteristics was his insatiable intellectual curiosity. Circumstances having denied him a university education, C.M. attached great importance to higher education. Among other things, he actively encouraged his children and grandchildren to get as much education as possible. C.M. provided many scholarships to the Eastern Synod of the Lutheran Church, and he was an enthusiastic supporter of the CM Dare Scholarship Fund established by Dare Foods for the children and grandchildren of its employees. C.M. was also a community builder and philanthropist, although always humbly and quietly, and many of our regional institutions have benefited from his leadership and generosity, including, to name just a few, the University of Waterloo, the Grand River Hospital, Conestoga College, the Grand River Conservation Authority, the Ruth Dare Health Clinic in Rosseau, the Stratford Festival, the Kitchener YMCA, and the K-W Symphony, for which he had a special passion. C.M. was instrumental in the founding of the University of Waterloo, and he was the only surviving member of the original Board of Governors in 2007 when he was awarded an honorary doctorate on the occasion of the university's 50th anniversary. Coming as it did on the eve of his 90th birthday, this recognition meant the world to him. C.M. was predeceased in 2003 by his loving wife of 61 years, Ruth, and in 2013, by his good friend Jean Boland. He leaves three children - Bryan (Malkin); Graham (Sandy); and Carolyn (Harmon) - and eight grandchildren - Carla (Scott); Alexa (Patrick); Kaitlin (Jeremy); Tanya (Jason); Jacob (Courtney); Laurence (Natsuko); Sydney (Ryan); and Katherine (Jamieson). It was a great blessing to him that he was well enough to preside over a family get-together just over a week ago that included several of his grandchildren as well as his two new great-granddaughters, Olivia Bryan and Nora Thompson. The family requests no flowers or donations in C.M.'s name, but rather asks that those who knew him take a moment to reflect on the importance of living a good life. A memorial service celebrating his life will be held at St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Kitchener at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, April 30th.

9398 HOBLER, Frances (nee Davidson)

June 3, 1923 - May 16, 2010. It is with sadness in our hearts that we announce the passing of our mother who was so very loved by her family and friends. Mom was born in Preston, Ontario where she was blessed with a life very well lived, full of blessings and joy. Mom worked for the Bell Telephone Company as a trainer, after finishing business college and once she married Dad, she made the important decision to be a "stay at home Mom" so she could appreciate and love her children and husband with grace, laughter and pride. Mom's life was enriched by her dedication to volunteering. As a lifelong and dedicated member of St. John's Anglican Church, Mom spent her lifetime in a volunteer capacity in many roles. Mom also volunteered at the Cambridge Memorial Hospital in the Ladies Auxiliary and Meals and Wheels for over 25 years, offering comfort and assistance to all who were blessed to meet her. As an avid singer, dancer, golfer, skater, reader, walker and life participant, Mom was always a pleasure to be with, seeking out the positive in any experience and revelling with delight in the abundance and beauty of nature's gifts and the joy of love and friendships. Predeceased by her loving husband Ladd in 1991 and her brothers Howard and Ken Davidson, Fran is survived by her daughters Patti Hobler (John Cressman) of Cambridge, Ontario, Sue Hobler (Zen Bodnar) of Victoria, BC, her two beloved grandchildren Ben and Devon Cressman, her sisters Connie Grimm (David) of Kitchener, Ontario, Shirley Scott (Doug deceased) of Oakville, Ontario and sister-in-law Mary Davidson of Kitchener, Ontario and their families. Fran is also survived by her extended family members, Adam and Shirley Hobler, Colleen Hobler (Frank deceased), Ross Prange (Catherine deceased), Minnie and Henry Koestal, Peter, Chris and Jacob Tarach (Janusz and Janina deceased) and their families. Mom has been compassionately cared for over the last 7 years by the loving staff of Hanning House in Cambridge, Ontario and we thank them for their tenderness, laughter, genuine thoughtfulness and especially for enriching Mom's life with continued dignity as the ravages of Alzheimer's disease slowly took their toll on Mom's life. We also thank Mom's dear friends who have continued to love and support her through her challenges with Alzheimer's. A celebration of Fran's life will be held at St. John's Anglican Church on Thursday, May 20, 2010 at 3 p.m. Reception to follow. Visitation will be held at Barthel Funeral Home on Wednesday, May 19, 2010, from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.

9400 Reminiscences of Berlin by Jacob Stroh, an article published by the Waterloo Historical Society in its 1930 volume, says this:

"On the corner, now occupied by Dr. Honsberger's residence, (there was) a two story brick building, for some time the residence of Sheriff (George) Davidson. Before that, 1840 -1860, Jacob Kramer occupied the building as a tavern."1a

Sheriff George Davidson, Esq.
 
9401 The Free Church branch, having no church building, held their services in the stone schoolhouse, now part of the residence of Mrs. Andrew Brown. The summer services were conducted largely by students of Knox College. Probably the winter services were carried on by themselves. I am told that Mr. Wm. Gerrie, Sr., was a good preacher and Mr. George (Sheriff) Davidson also belonged to that party. The Free Church building, known latterly as "the lecture room", was built in 1848 by William Mitchell as carpenter and George Cummings as mason. The deed for the lot was given by G. Davidson to William Mitchell, George Cummings, and Jas. Adamson, as trustees for the congregation, on the eighth day of March, 1852, for the sum of five shillings currency (about one dollar of our money). This was the first piece of real estate that became the possession of either congregation.

A Few Notes on the Early History of Chalmers' Church, Winterbourne" by Rev. A. M. Hamilton, M. A.

________________________

About the year 1854 an effort was made in connection with a new congregation started in Berlin, largely through the influence of Sheriff Davidson, he had removed there about the year 1843 to obtain a pastor over the two congregations During 1855 and part of 1856 ministers of the Presbytery gave supply, and from October 1856 Rev. A. Constable Geikie preached to the two congregations. A call was prepared for him June 28th, 1857, but the Woolwich people were not satisfied with the arrangements for services, so the union was dissolved and Woolwich stood alone again. Both congregations got up a call for Mr. Geikie, but being invited by the celebrated Dr. Bayne, of Galt, to be his helper and successor in Knox Church of that town, he accepted and had just removed and got settled there when one Sabbath morning Dr. Bayne died very suddenly, and the congregation of Knox Church, Galt, refused to carry out the arrangements, so Mr. Geikie removed to Australia and became one of the great leaders of the church there and passed away a few years ago. Returning to the other branch of the church, St. Andrew's, Woolwich, we have the Session Records to guide us in tracing the history. On Oct. 17th, 1854, the Presbytery of Hamilton met in the church, composed of Rev. J. C. Gibson (Galt), Rev. Kenneth MacLennan and Rev. Cohn Gregor (Guelph), for the purpose of inducting the Rev. James Shour. The elders present were George Loggie, James Burnett and William Smith, all belonging to St. Andrew's, Woolwich, of whom George Loggie and James Burnett were new members of the Session and had been chosen and ordained during the vacancy. The Rev Mr. Gibson preached from 1 Cor. 3:9 'Ye are gods', and after the usual vows had been accepted by the Rev. Mr. Shour he was addressed by the Rev. Mr. Gregor and the people by Rev. Mr. MacLennan. The Rev. Mr. Shour was a man of short stature and thick set build, kindly and quiet in his manner. He was educated in Glasgow, Scotland, was ordained and inducted into the charge of Three Rivers, Quebec, in 1844 and in 1854 into the charge of St. Andrew's, Woolwich. At his settlement the families connected with the congregation were 40, the communicants 56, scholars in Sabbath school 100, teachers 11 and one bible class. Half the families that supported and attended the services of the church were Episcopalians. The arrangement for services were Sabbath school to be held at ten on Sabbath morning, public service at eleven with occasional evening services, prayer meetings in private houses each week alternately on each side of the Grand River.

_______________

George Davidson, who came to Canada in 1835 and bought and improved 200 acres of partially cleared land at Winterbourne, had several claims to distinction. He became the first sheriff of Waterloo County (1853-1881), the first postmaster of Berlin (1842) and was one of three men who, in the old schoolhouse adjacent to the village hall, organized St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Berlin.

At New Aberdeen, six miles to the southwest of Berlin, he bought a farm of 500 acres, built a sawmill and a grist mill, and opened a store. He later returned to Berlin where he performed his duties as sheriff. He was also a township and County councillor and a school trustee.

Davidson's church interests led to the organization of Chalmers Church, Winterbourne, in 1837, and the holding of mission services in Berlin. He was also Lieutenant-Colonel of the 2nd Battery, Waterloo Militia

This was known as Lower Woolwich post office while the Davidson's had it, and old Captain Smith carried the mail twice a week from Preston. The log house was pulled down about the year 1860 by our old friend Sandy Imlay, who is now living in Winterbourne.

In the Davidson family there were : John, James, William, Alexander, Ann, Elizabeth, Isabella, Mary, and Elsie. All except Ann and Alexander had lived at Winterbourne. Ann was the eldest and she was married in 1824 to Alexander Allan, a lawyer in the city of Aberdeen. They came to Canada in 1843 and lived near Preston. Mr. Allan was the first Superintendent of Schools in the Wellington District, and held that position until 1853, when the County of Waterloo was set apart, and was the first Village Clerk of Preston. He died in 1855, and his wife died at Salem in 1878. One of their sons, Absalom Shade Allan, was M. P. P. for West Wellington from 1886 to 1894, and is now Sheriff of the County of Wellington. The late William Allan, of Salem was another son.

Isabella married Absalom Shade, the man who in company with the Hon. William Dickson founded the town of Galt in 1816. She afterwards married Dean Boomer and resided in London, Ontario. Mary married John Geddes, son of the late Andrew Geddes, Crown Land Agent at Elora. Elsie married William McKenzie and they went back to Scotland and lived at his estate " Fortrie," near Aberdeen. William was a merchant in Liverpool, and Alexander was a merchant in Malta. John was a banker in Galt, and was afterwards Postmaster. His wife was a sister of the late Dr. Tassie of Galt.

James Davidson, sr., about 1845, removed to Galt and died at Spring Hill on the fifteenth of August, 1852, the result of being injured by a runaway team of horses. His wife died on the sixth of August 1853, aged seventy-six
years.

9421 Montgomery ("Monty") Bryden Davidson
October 23, 1935 \endash March 26, 2017

A beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, it is with great sadness we announce that Monty, aged 81, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on Sunday March 26, 2017.
Monty lived a robust life and will be forever in the hearts of his loving wife of 62 years, Margaret; his children Dean (Sharon); Debbie (Peter); Brad (Suzie); Glenn (Dolly); Brett (Peggy), and Gregg (Marianne); his 13 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren. Monty will be missed by his sister Linda Bowen, his extended family of "adopted" children and grandchildren, and his many friends.
An activist; trade union leader; health and safety advocate; and, proud life-long member of the New Democratic Party ("NDP"), Monty valued and dedicated his attention to the struggles and issues of his brothers and sisters in the Labour Movement; to his constituents during his tenure as Member of Provincial Parliament ("MPP") for Cambridge, and to his many friends across the country.
At the age of 15 Monty went to work at the Stauffer and Dobbie Co., textile plant in Galt, Ontario and at the age of 17 became the plant's shop steward. It was the plight of his fellow workers' at the textile plant that defined Monty's life's focus to improve the standing of men, women, the less fortunate, and most vulnerable. From the shop floor Monty moved on to become a union organizing representative for the Textile Union Workers of America, aiming to improve the standard of living and working conditions of textile workers across Canada.
As a trade union organizer, Monty found a home with like-minded individuals in the local NDP riding association where together they would build social awareness and fight for equality. With his strong social conscience, the support of his devoted wife Margaret, and at the urging of his many friends and co-workers, Monty decided to take his advocacy to a higher level. In 1975, Monty ran for a seat in Ontario's Provincial Parliament as the NDP candidate for the riding of Cambridge. Monty's, "Tomorrow Starts Today" campaign ultimately resulted in a groundbreaking NDP victory at the Provincial level in Cambridge. Monty continued to represent Cambridge as its MPP until 1981. Monty would go on to work with the Ontario Federation of Labour's Workers Health and Safety Centre before retiring in 1999.
Monty's life-long contribution to the trade labour movement and NDP in Cambridge was recently honoured through the establishment of the Monty Davidson Labour-NDP award recognizing on an annual basis an individual who best reflects Monty's values and dedication to the labour movement and NDP.
Cremation has taken place. A private family celebration of Monty's life and internment will follow at a later date.
In lieu of flowers donations in Monty's memory can be made to a social cause of one's choice or to Toronto's Sick Children's Hospital.
One election slogan is as relevant today as it was during the 1975 Provincial election campaign, "I'm for Monty."

9426 The local post-office remained at the corner of King and Queen Streets until 1846. Postmaster Davidson then built a three -story, frame store and post-office at No. 32 East King Street, parallel to and standing back several feet from the street line. The post-office was located is the eastern end. In 1847 George Davidson admitted his brother William to partnership and removed to New Aberdeen, six miles below Berlin. Nominally he continued to be the postmaster until 1851, when his brother William was appointed in his stead.

William Davidson built the third post-office building in 1855, on a lot between Boedecker & Stuebing's bookstore and the American corner. It was a one story frame building, with a gable and verandah facing King Street. He live in a house nearby that until 1853 had been the home of Carl H. Ahrens, the first county treasurer. At the back end of the kitchen Mr. Ahrens built e. brick vault that was said to be fireproof, end contained an iron chest for storing cash and documents.

When that post-office was ready to use Mr. Davidson sold the building at No. 32 East King Street to Carl W. C. Kranz and Henry Stroh, general merchants. Later on C.

9427 MRS. HANNAH BRYCE was one of the old members of the church, uniting with it under the pastorate of the Rev. W. T. Murdoch in 1863. She was born in Mid-Lothian, Scotland, lived in Auchindinny and Roslin after her marriage, and attended the Glencorse parish church with her husband, who wrought in the Roslin and Stobbs powder mills. They lived also at Gorebridge, where she enjoyed the ministry of the Rev. Cathcart Leslie, of the Established Church. This church was two and a half miles away from where they lived, while the United Presbyterian Church was only half a mile away, so that to the Sunday School of this church the children went a wonderfully liberal course of action at that time! Of this Sunday School, Mr. James Donaldson was superintendent. This Mr. James Donaldson was the late Rev. James Donaldson, of Galt, the father of Mr. A. G. Don aldson, and husband of Mrs. Donaldson, who are both members of the Central Church. Mr. James Donaldson was a scholarly, able, and highly respectable minister of the United Presbyterian Church in Scotland, and of the Canada Presby terian Church in this country. He was in infirm health some years before his death. He had hosts of friends who were strongly attached to him, and loved to see his bright intelligent face, and to hear his large discourse of general affairs, and especially of scriptural truth. He was an able and eloquent expounder of the sacred Scriptures. He died on September 10th, 1900. Mrs. Bryce and her family came to Canada in 1855. On the voyage they suffered shipwreck on the Bird Rocks in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and they lost everything. They were picked up and landed at Pictou, Nova Scotia, where they were kindly and hospitably entertained for seventeen days by the late Mr. George Pringle, of Queen Street, Galt, who was at that time living in Pictou. On coming into this western country they settled on the Clyde farm, where Mrs. Bryce lived out the term of her life, dying in 1901. When they settled on the farm they felt keenly the loss of the religious services to which they had been accustomed ; for this to people of her class was almost their entire world. Add to the home life, the church service, and a friendly neighbor or two, and you have their complete sphere of existence. In those early days Mr. Bryce s first team was one of oxen, and not suitable to go to church with. But Mr. Oliver Goodfellow, a neighbor, had horses and a lumber waggon in which he and his family went to church. In this Mr. Bryce s family found a placd and gladly went, too, and this gave Mrs. Bryce great joy, for her nature was deeply religious. The Bible formed about her the atmosphere she breathed. By its teaching she lived. And she was always of a sweet spirit, a bright face, a pleasant voice, sounding out the Mid-Lothian doric in an exceedingly attractive way. One felt rested in heart after being with her a little while in conversation. She had very high appreciation of the ministers under whom she sat. Among her treasures was a small pamphlet by the Rev. Wm. T. Murdoch, entitled: " The Gospel of Grace Vindicated." At church, always in her place when it was at all possible, she was an earnest and devout listener, never tiring of hearing of the Saviour s love, having a deep inward conviction of the truth as it is in Jesus. Next to her Bible, she valued good, sound religious books ; among her favor ites were: Baxter s " Saints Rest ; " Alleine s " Alarm to the Unconverted ; " Willison s "Afflict ed Man s Companion ; " Rutherford s Sermons, and Spurgeon s " Saint and his Saviour." She was a faithful, kind, devoted mother, and trained her children with Christian care. One of them, though very small at the time, remembers yet the preacher s desk, the high pulpit and the ten commandments on either side of the pulpit, and the tunes that were sung. A fragrant memory this to carry in life! An uplifting memory! Mrs. Bryce, after a brief illness, went home full of faith and of years, dying as she had lived.

9435 ...The roots of this story are in Tsarist Russia when a couple, each aged 29, fled because of violent pogroms. In 1908, they arrived in Toronto with the anglicized names of Jack and Netilda Davis. During the First World War, Jack and Nettie moved to Kitchener to open a small clothing store named "N. Davis Gents Furnishings" at 207 King West (beside 2016's Fritsch Fragrances.) In 1921, after five years of hard work trying to differentiate their shop from numerous other, mostly Jewish-operated, clothing stores along King Street, they built a $50,000 dry goods emporium at number 227. Expanding to ladies' wear, shoes, kitchenware and millinery, Jack renamed the business "Davis Economic Store." It was modern throughout \emdash featuring cash-carrying vacuum tubes \emdash and people who recall Acker Furniture will be able to envision the Davis store's layout and location. In 2016, the site is an empty lot beside Manulife.

Life was good for the Davises in the late teens and early 20s and the family was active in the early days of Beth Jacob Synagogue in Kitchener. Business was also good because at the same time as his $50,000 store investment Jack was spending another $25,000 constructing a mansion high above Kitchener....

Dumfries Reformer and Western Counties General Advertiser 13 Feb 1861

______________________

GALT IN JULY, 1844

Mr. Alex. Addison has sent us quite a curiosity in its way the first and second number of the Dumfries Courier, published in Galt in July, 1844. The paper itself is a curiosity, and its advertisements and other contents have provoked in our mind a resurrection of many old events, which might have remained in oblivion for ever had not this record come in our way. The Courier was printed by Mr. B. C. Hearle, and embraced 24 columns of matter not nearly the size of the Reformer, while the typography would be considered rather antiquated at the present day. … . Among its advertisers, we find that "New Goods" have been received by J. K. Andrews: Robert Edmond desires "Tailoring" to any extent; Æ. B. Gordon announces "Fresh Arrivals," of Staple and Fancy Dry Goods; Wagstaff & Ramore have he best Tin and Sheet Iron Ware in Galt; and Robert Gillespie has on hand a general stock of Dry Goods, Groceries and Hardware. Besides these names, we find the following advertisers: Donald McIntosh, Tavern-Keeper and Tailor, a strange combination; Alexr. Beckett, Barber and Hair-dresser; Courtenay & Service, Dry Goods dealers; James W. Davis, Tin and Sheet-iron Manufacturer; Andrew Oliver, Druggist; John Dodd, engraver; and John Miller and Adam Ainslie, Barristers. These names comprise all the advertisers, and will recall to those who have long lived in Galt, many strange reminiscences of bygone days. We thank Mr. Addison for placing these old papers on our taable.

Man who killed Olympian Victor Davis in 1989 charged in 2016 death

MONTREAL\emdash A Montreal man who killed Olympic-champion swimmer Victor Davis in 1989 is back behind bars, this time for allegedly causing the death of an elderly man at a bar last fall.

Glen Crossley, 46, served four months of a 10-month sentence after being found guilty in the Nov. 11, 1989 hit-and-run incident in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, Que., that killed Davis. The 25-year-old athlete originally from Guelph, Ont., died after suffering a severe skull fracture as well as brain and spinal damage.

Crossley turned himself in on Monday afternoon after learning from a family member that Montreal police had issued a warrant for his arrest in the death of a 70-year-old man at a bar in September 2016, said his lawyer, Gilbert Frigon....

The incident followed an argument at a nightclub in a suburb of Montreal. In that case, police waited 15 months before laying charges against Crossley.

A coroner's inquiry had been held in that period of time into the death, and statements Crossley had made to the police were introduced as evidence.

Crossley told police he had been trying to avoid a bottle Davis threatened to throw at the vehicle and didn't realize he had made contact with the swimmer. Other testimony showed that Davis was actually hit from behind and flew about 14 metres through the air, eventually striking his head on a parked car and a curb.

The coroner, Pierre Trahan, concluded that there was insufficient proof to show that Crossley had intentionally struck Davis.

Begun: c.1843 Closed: c.1865

Primitive Methodist meetings may have begun as early as 1843 when the congregation was on the Guelph-Galt Primitive Methodist Circuit, but it is unknown just exactly when a congregation was officially organized. At the First Annual Conference of the Primitive Methodist Connexion, Canada West, at Brampton 27 April-1 May 1854, the Galt Mission was in the Hamilton District; the pastor at the time was the Rev. John Davison. Galt was a separate Mission until 1858 when it was joined with Blenheim for several years.

9452 On a farm just outside of Galt Robert Dawson developed "Dawson's Golden Chaff" a variety of wheat made popular for more that 40 years. After a storm badly damaged his wheat crop he noticed one plant that had survived. He saved the seeds and planted them and the characteristics of the plant proved useful and after a few years and for the next forty his grain was widely used by him and other farmers. He moved to the Paris area and is buried in the Paris Cemetery.


Cambridge Mosaic, Jim Quantrell, 1998, City of Cambridge [abbreviated snippet from original text in book]

___________________

The naming of a select strain of wheat as "Dawson's Golden Chaff" honored Robert Dawson, a farmer Galt, born in Aberdeenshire Scotland, who was responsible for its development.

In 1881 Dawson, living on land which became the Galt Country Club on Coronation Blvd., owned a field of storm-flattened winter wheat called Red Dawson. While walking in the field in the spring, he noticed standing alone one plant obviously unusually vigorous, that had withstood the adverse weather. He saved the plant and in a few years produced enough grain to seed his own farm and sell a quantity to a neighbor. The Ontario Agricultural College purchased some of the wheat, and on testing it in their plots discovered that it far out yielded all other varieties. They gave it the name "Dawson's Golden Chaff." This variety is, in 1972, still being used in test plots at Guelph to improve new varieties of wheat.

Dawson's Golden Chaff

Dawson's came from a single plant selected from a field of Clawson wheat in 1881 by Robert Dawson, Paris, Ontario. It was distributed by the Ontario Agricultural College and has been a eading variety in Ontario for over 50 years. It is widely adapted to the main winter wheat areas of Ontario, and registered seed stocks have been produced for many years. Loose smut has been a troublesome disease in Dawson's Golden Chaff and much of the former acreage devoted to this variety has been replaced by the more resistant Cornell 595. Dawson's is a high quality soft white winter wheat for the pastry flour trade, as well as a strong strawed, high yielding variety in the field.

Early Genesee Giant. This variety has been grown on the plots for two years, but owing to the lateness of receiving the seed in 1892 the results were not reported the first year. It stood fourth in general appearance of standing grain, and seventh in yield of threshed grain, among eighty varieties grown this year. The straw is tall and fairly strong, the heads bearded and quite compact, the chaff red and the grain white.

The above mentioned varieties have all been offered by leading seedsmen over Ontario for at least two years, with the exception of the Dawson's Golden Chaff which was not advertised in the seedsmen's catalogues previous to this season. In 1881 Mr. Robert Dawson, of Paris, Ont., had a field of the Seneca, or Clawson in which he found one plant quite distinct and much superior to the rest of the crop. Mr. Dawson sowed the grain from this plant, and has continued to grow this wheat since that time. This variety has been extensively grown in the vicinity of Paris for the past few years; but it was practically unknown over Ontario until tested at the experimental station along with many old and new varieties, and the comparative results published.

9469 The first clergyman who ever preached in Dumfries is believed to have been the Rev. Alex. De Noon, of Caledonia, New York, to whose congregation several of the first settlers near Branchton had belonged. A member of his church named William Forbes, had removed about 1818 to the head of Lake Ontario, where his family was attacked by what was then called lake fever a species of fever and ague-and, sad to relate, himself, wife and nephew, all died. Mr. De Noon, accompanied by one of his elders, Mr. Donald Mackenzie, father of the late Simon Mackenzie, of Branchton, came over to Upper Canada in 1819, to look after Mr. Forbes' property, and being within thirty miles of his former parishioners, he determined to make his way through the bush to Dumfries, and see them and their new home. He remained over one Sunday, and preached in the house of Mr. Alex. Harvie, which the handful of settlers in the neighbourhood greatly enjoyed and appreciated.

9482 George W.'s two sons by his first wife, Henry H. and George, married Newton sisters and settled in Tecumseth Township, Simcoe County as early as 1833. They lived there most of the remainder of their lives
.
In 1834 Samuel Lount was elected to represent Simcoe County in the Legislature of Upper Canada (Ontario). He was an uncle of John Hawk who in about 1832 married George W. Dean's eldest daughter, Martha. In the 1830's, political storm clouds were gathering over the corrupt administration of Upper Canada by the "Family Compact," a collection of officials who favored family and friends in dispensing land and appointing government officials. The leader of the opposition to the "Family Compact" was William Lyon Mackenzie, and he was joined by others including Samuel Lount. In 1837 many of the leading reformers, including Mackenzie and Lount, lost their seats in Parliament, and their cause became an armed rebellion. After the uprising was put down, some of its leaders including Mackenzie escaped to the United States, but two of the leaders were caught and later hanged. One of these was Samuel Lount. The reforms over which the rebellion was fought were enacted into law on February 10, 1841.

In about 1846 Benjamin Hawk Sr., his wife Mary (Lount) Hawk, and the families of their five sons and four daughters moved from Simcoe County to unsettled land in Wellesley Township, Waterloo County. The area was known as the "Queen's Bush." The community where they settled became Hawkesville. These Hawk families included Benjamin Jr. and Mary (Dean) Hawk and John and Martha (Dean) Hawk. John Hawk built the first gristmill in the vicinity of Hawkesville, and his brother Percifer Hawk built the first sawmill. There are numerous instances where verifiable members of this family, in some cases even the same person, spelled their name Hawk or Hawke. On at least one early map the town was named Hawksville. Except where quoting sources, I have chosen to spell the name Hawk.

Accompanying the Hawk families were a number of other families, including George W. Dean, his wife and their sons John, Alfred and Walter. Land records indicate George Dean, Sr. claimed Lot 4, Con. 15 (Eastern Section) Wellesley Township in 1847. This is the land devised in George W.'s will when he died in 1856. These land records also show a Henry H. Dean claimed part of Lot 8, Con. 11 (ES) Wellesley Township in 1847 and a George Dean claimed the east half of Lot 13, Con. 14 (Western Section) in 1850. I think these were George W.'s sons claiming land in Wellesley Township, but not remaining there for any length of time.

The 1851/52 census was the earliest Canadian census to list the names and ages of all the members of each household. It records many of the people listed in the previous two paragraphs at or near Hawkesville, Wellesley Township. In that census, George W. Dean, his wife Jane, their two youngest sons Alfred and Walter, their son John and his wife Margaret and a Jane Newton were enumerated in a one-story log house. The census enumerator wrote "granddau" beside the name of Jane Newton even though the census form did not require such information. My research indicates she was actually a grandniece of George W., not a granddaughter. In that census, George W. gave his religion as "No Church" while the remainder of the family were "Wesleyan Methodist."

George W. Dean died 21 November 1856 at the age of 70 years. He was buried in the Hawkesville Cemetery. In his will he bequeathed 62 acres of land consisting of the east part of Lot 4, Con. 15 (Eastern Section), Wellesley Township and the buildings on it to his son, John Dean, and he bequeathed 50 acres consisting of the west part of that lot to his son, Walter Dean. The James Sim who witnessed the will was "a minister of the Baptist Denomination" and a community leader in Hawkesville. He later performed marriages involving at least two Hawk children and the Jane Newton mentioned above. 1

9490 MRS. HELEN TELFER was the daughter of Mr. James Deans, and inherited many of his qualities. She was quiet and retiring, shunning publicity, and loving most the peaceful seclusion of her own fireside. She answered to the Apostle s injunction to the young women: " To love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home." She was deeply religious, devoted to the truth, seeking always to exemplify the obedience of the faith. She fed upon the hidden manna, and bore abroad in the kindliness of her spirit, and in the sweet charity of her disposition, a benediction wherever she went. Her children rose up to call her blessed. Her life made no great stir, but, like the movement of the silent sunbeam, and the refreshing dewdrop stealing down upon the thirsty plant, it made impressions that abide, and that nourish the higher and better life of the soul. She sought constantly and earnestly to approve herself to God, and she and her children lived in the fear of God.

She suffered long from a malignant disease, which eventually ended her pilgrimage. But all through it she was patient, and endured what God sent her without a murmur. When I called to see her she would ask me to sing for her, which I did. One day I asked her if there was any hymn she would like, and she said: " Sing Rock of Ages, cleft for me. " I sang it, and when I came to the last verse, and to this line, " When I soar to worlds unknown," etc., I shall never forget her look. She was near her end, and I realized the thorough unscripturalness of the thought here, and how unsuitable it was, because untrue. We go not to " worlds unknown," but to our Father s House, where a place is prepared for us; and we go not unattended. Jesus says: " I will come again, and receive you unto Myself, that where I am, there ye may be also." That is not soaring to worlds unknown. No! No! It is going home to a loving heart, and a sweet fellowship, and unspeakable joy. Taking Christ s own representation, of which Paul s is just the echo, " Absent from the body, present with the Lord," there is in it warmth and comfort and upholding, just what the parting soul needs. When our feet are crossing the threshold the Lord comes to meet us and give us welcome. Ever since singing that verse at that time I have had a feeling much averse to it, and would never again sing it in like circum stances. We should sustain the heart with truth at that trying time.

At the extremity of her suffering she was full of blessed confidence and sweet peace, and died as she had lived, trusting in the mercy of God through her Saviour, Jesus Christ.

She loved all good things, the Word of God, the house of God, the place of prayer, the fellowship of Christian hearts, and the blessed hope, and now, in the faithfulness of God, she is enjoying to the full the Everlasting Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

9493 MR. JAMES DEANS was a man of fine, sweet nature and cheery disposition, and evangelical spirit. He had a singular love for the Gospel of God's grace, and nourished his soul on its blessed truths. He could get no higher theme of converse and none other to him was satisfying. While here he lived in the palace of the King. He was always bright and happy, and you had no need to ask him, " What is your best word ? " for he always gave you that. He stood in the light that never fails or fades away, satisfied with its revelation and its rest. He enjoyed his religion, finding in it comfort and strength to serve God now, and the inspiration of a blessed hope for the future. All my recollections bring him back to me as a profoundly happy man, and that always flowing out of his living faith in the Saviour of sinners. He took great delight in reading C. H. Spurgeon s sermons, with their clear exposition of divine mysteries, their forceful illustration of doctrine, their uplifting spiritual power. They furnished to him strong meat, and materially helped to develop a sterling character.

He was a regular subscriber for The Metropolitan Pulpit, which, when he had read and feasted on himself, he gave away, that others might enjoy the rich banquet they spread for the hungry soul. God had blessed and prospered him in his work and he was generous in his use of what God had given him. He held it only as one who administered God's bounty. He regarded himself as the steward of God. From more quarters than one have we heard of his generous gifts bestowed with a lavish hand.

His end came unexpectedly one day. His advancing years increased a deafness, with which he had been troubled for a long time past, so that it was very difficult for him to hear at all. He was staying with his daughter, Mrs. Helen Telfer, in Galt, and he liked to go up town and see his old friends, and hear the news, and get the mail at the post-office. In going there he had to cross the railway track, where there are many lines of rail laid. And one day, as he was crossing, a train was shunting in the yard, and a loose, single car moving along the track, entirely unobserved by him, came upon him, and though the people shouted a warning with loud cries, yet he heard them not, and there met his end, being killed instantly. The appointed time had come, and in this way God called him home. But for this he was waiting and prepared. In conversations had with him some time before it was evident that he was looking forward with joyous hope to the time when he would enter in and go no more out

In memory of him, his son Mr. Thomas Deans, North Dumfries, has given a memorial bell, one thousand pounds in weight, to be one of the chimes for the Central Church.

INSTANTLY KILLED

JAMES DEANS KNOCKED DOWN AND KILLED BY A FREIGHT CAR.


Several Saw His Danger and Called Out - Being Deaf, He Did Not Hear Them, The Wheel Passed Over His Neck, Severing the Head From the Body.

At a few minutes after three o'clock, Friday afternoon, Jas. Deans, an old gentleman nearly ninety years of age, was instantly killed at the G.W. station. The old man, who was very deaf, was crossing the track at the station, when a car, which was shunted down from Todd's mill struck him. The wheel passed over his neck, completely severing his head from the body. Before the car reached him, some bystanders, who were too far away to save him, warned the unfortunate man of his danger, but he did not hear them and so met a violent death. When the fatality occurred, the brakeman was standing at the back end of the car and so could not see that there was anything on the track. While the car was a short distance away from where the old man was standing, the brakeman was informed of the deceased's perilous position, but though he put on the brakes, was unable to stop the car. A doctor was at once summoned, but all that he could do was to have the remains removed, the body being taken to the house of Mrs. Teller, daughter of the dead man, with whom he had been living. Fortunately, no blame can be attributed to any one for the accident, the old gentleman seeing the engine standing down the track and his deafness preventing him from hearing the slowly approaching car, evidently thought the track was clear and went to his death. Mr. Lewis, the brakeman and the other trainmen and station employees, feel the unfortunate occurrence very keenly. An inquest was held, the result of which will be found in another column. The late Mr. Deans was born near Jedburgh. Roxburghshire, Scotland, nearly 90 years ago. When a young man, 24 years of age, he came to Canada and a year later was followed by the remainder of the family, four sisters, a brother and his mother, his father having died some thirteen years before. On his arrival in this country, the deceased first resided in Toronto, where he remained for a few months. After spending a short time in London, he took up land in North Dumfries, and settled on the farm now occupied by his son, Thomas Deans, West River road. Her he remained until ten years ago, when he retired from farming. Since then he had made his home alternately with his daughter, Mrs. Teller, State Street, town and with his son on the homestead. He was twice married, his first wife being, Miss Jane Brydon, who predeceased him many years, dying when about 32 years old. His second wife has been dead for many years. By his first wife, he had six children, only three whom are living, Mr. Thos. Deans, on the homestead; Mrs. John Telfer, State. The subject of this sketch was the last of a family of six, all of whom lived to an old age, the most of them exceeding four score years. He was a Reformer to the backbone and one of the men who have made the party what It is today. He never aspired to civic honors, the only public office he ever held was that of school trustee. In religion was a Presbyterian, being the oldest and one of the most highly esteemed members of the Central church. The funeral took place from the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Telfer, State Street, at 2 o'clock, on Monday afternoon, to Mt. View cemetery.

9494 DIED AT THE POOR HOUSE

An Inmate of That Institution for Nearly a Quarter of a Century

Visitors at the county House of Refuge, at Berlin, for many years past will remember Miss Deans, a neat, clean, refined old lady, who occupied one of the rooms and though usually busily knitting, was always ready for a chat. She was personally known to many from this neighborhood, who, whenever occasion called them to visit the house, were always sure to enquire for Miss Deans. Those who knew her, will regret to hear of her death, which took place on Thursday evening, from old age, she being in her 84th year. The body was taken to Galt by train, on Saturday and interred in Mt. View cemetery. Many old friends attended the funeral, which took place from the Grand Trunk station. Rev. Dr. Dickson conducted the services. Miss Catherine Deans was a sister of Mr. James Deans, now of Galt, but formerly of North Dumfries, and the late Walter Deans, of Galt. She has been an inmate of the House of Refuge, for 24 years. Her relatives, especially her brothers, were always kind and good to her and she was at any time, welcome to a home with any of them.

9504 Young father beaten to death in Kitchener parking lot was turning life around
Nurse on duty when dying son brought into hospital

It was 11 a.m. on June 26 when Dylan Darren DeBreau, 23, was fatally beaten in a Kitchener parking lot, where he was waiting to pick up his six-month-old son. His mother, Lisa Levesque, was working at the Hamilton General Hospital that day. She received a text message from DeBreau's ex-girlfriend, saying that DeBreau was being lifted by air ambulance to the General.

"I'm a nurse. I knew that airlifting meant life or death," she said. Lisa ran down from the cardiac unit to the emergency unit to ask if anyone was en route. "Her colleague said there was a 23-year-old who was unresponsive," explained DeBreau's stepfather, Steven Levesque.

"Then she looked at Lisa and said, 'Oh my God, it's your son.'"

It was one, hard punch in the face that knocked DeBreau backwards onto to the pavement in front of Sunny's convenience store on Lancaster Street. He split his head in the fall.

Edward Joseph Bush, 41, was charged on Friday by Waterloo Regional Police for manslaughter. He has no fixed address....

Man gets 3 ½ years for killing another man with a single punch

KITCHENER A Kitchener man who killed another man with a single punch to the head outside a convenience store last summer was sentenced to 3 ½ years in prison.

Edward Bush, 41, who pleaded guilty to manslaughter, will serve 35 months, taking into consideration time already served.

He's been in a jail since the day of the deadly assault on Dylan Darren Debreau, 23, on June 26.

In a rare moment of emotion, Justice Michael Epstein cried as he told Debreau's family that in his 39 years practising law as a lawyer and judge he's seen seven cases which resulted in the death of a person because of one punch.

Debreau's mother burst out crying as Epstein said he's tried to "preach" to make the young people "appreciate how horrific the consequences of an assault can be."

After the sentence, Debreau's girlfriend Nina Quirion said she was disappointed with the jail time imposed by the judge. Quirion and Debreau had a son, Dalton, who is 10 months old.

9507 To meet Mr. Fred DeBus, even casually, is to observe that he is one of the brightest business men in the place. Genial but alert, one is not surprised to know that his grain, flour and feed business is a prosperous one. Mr. DeBus deals in flour and feed and coarse grains principally. But he has several other strong lines. He is a large dealer in potatoes and makes a particularly strong bid for seeds, a commodity always in demand among the farmers. The modern agriculturist is very careful of what kind of clover, timothy, mangold, and turnip seed he purchases. He wants clean, reliable seed, for any other may cause him untold annoyance and loss. One way to safeguard himself is to go to a dependable dealer and the farmers about New Hamburg are fortunate in having a reliable dealer like Mr. Debus. They recognize the fact and patronize him liberally. His supply of standard stock foods and binder twine is another feature of his large store.

9526 Decker Dreadful Accident:

A son of Mr. Isaac Decker of Waterloo met his death on the 3rd instant under the following circumstances. He had been sent by his father to take charge of a horse to which a halter was attached for the purpose of allowing the animal to graze along the margin of a field without injuring the grain. The boy, unthinkingly, made the halter fast around his waist, and, a moment after, his hat blew off. Throwing up his hands to catch it, the motion startled the horse who started off at full speed, dragging the unfortunate child with him. The father was informed immediately by one of the family of the occurrence, and followed the horse, but the frightened animal could not be captured without much trouble. When secured, it was found the child was quite dead and horribly mutilated.1a

9534 Binder - Rachel Dendels was born in Germany July 2, 1853; died in Breslau, Ontario, Jan. 1, 1935, in her 82nd year. When she was about a year and half of age she came to Canada with her parents, Christian and Mary Dedels. On March 8, 1870, she was united in marriage to Andrew Binder, who predeceased her 15 years. To this union were born 8 daughters, four having preceded her in death. There remain to mourn the departure of a loving mother, 4 daughters (Mina, Rose and Linda at home, and Nancy, Mrs. Ira Buschert, Kitchener, Ont.), two grandchildren, and a host of relatives and friends. Sister Binder was converted 34 years ago, united with the Mennonite Church, and kept the faith until her Lord took her home. The last 14 years of her life were spent as an invalid in much suffering. Her affliction was arthritis, and very seldom that she was free from pain. Yet she bore her sufferings patiently, wondering sometimes why she should be so afflicted, but always looking forward to the time when she would be released to enjoy her heavenly home where there is no pain. The funeral was held Jan. 3 from her late home in Breslau, to the Cressman Mennonite Church for services and the adjoining cemetery for interment. Text chosen by Sister Binder was Phil. 1:21. Ministers, Bros. Jonas Snider and Oscar Burkholder.

"God knew that she was suffering,
That the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed her weary eyelids
And whispered 'Peace be thine.'
Away in the beautiful hills of God,
By the valley of peace so fair,
Some time, some day, we know not when,
We will meet our loved on there."

9553 A-1-35 Henry Degenhart: Last Will and Testament of Henry Degenhart, late of Mannheim, in the Township of Wilmot, written in the German language, and the same translated into English, and translation verified, by C. Enslin, Notary Public.

…Mannheim the 22rd February 1854. I Henry Degenhart make my Will for wife and children.

(1) My wife, a born Mary Schafer, married to me the 27 February 1851 and shall have after my death the marriage bed wherein there is her feather cover, the small rocking chair and what she owns herself in clothing.

(2) She shall have two hundred dollars but she must wait till the Executors will have received the money, which lasts about three years. (3) Lewis Degenhart shall have my writing desk.

(4) Catharine and Elizabeth shall have their bureaus and divide the white linen and what else belongs to them. Elizabeth and Catharine shall select for themselves each one bed.

(5) Shall M. Degenhart, because she had received nothing, have thirty dollars advance, and the Executors and Relatives do care for her, because she is yet a minor.

(6) The Brick house with barn and lot, Lewis, Catharine and Elizabeth shall draw the lot for the same six weeks before the termination of the four years for which it is given in Rent, and value the same at $1,600, I say sixteen hundred dollars, which will be divided in equal portions and bear 400 for each of my four children and the wife has nothing to do therewith.

(7) The upper and lower house with lots can be sold… The seven acres from Peter Horner are serviceable to the Tavern, may take the seven acres to the same, make one hundred and eighty dollars, say $180 with costs, at which I value them in four equal portions, for the four children.

(8) After my death shall be sold all the house and kitchen furniture and what else is on hand and two complete beds with feather covers and quilts thereto, then seven blankets and if John Schader allows the 3 beds which he also has with the Lean to be sold by the Executors at the vendue [Within Amish and Old Order Mennonite tradition, the word Vendu is used for Auction sale and derives from French.] Then he shall have deducted from his Rent five dollars each year, but if he don't do, then they must as now be delivered up.

(9) All the aforesaid shall be sold after common usage, but in case my children buy something their Notes shall be put payable in two years, then it goes with interest.

(10) I chose to me the subscriber as Executor Adam Bricker and Michael Stoltz, all of the Township line of Wilmot.

(11) But in case (one) departs life between time John Frantz[sic] shall take his place. The white linen and the fine German coffee service which Catharine and Elizabeth divide, the Executors and Relatives may value so that little Mary be not overreached, but gets her share thereof. Whether second mother Mary buys at the venue, the amount goes off from her two hundred dollars.

(12) Shall cow, stove and whatever else is on hand be sold, that is my will…

9558 H. DEICHERT.

The man who is geniunely in love with his calling is usually a marked success. This applies to Mr. H. Deichert, whose handsome show room and workshop is on Peel St. Mr. Deichert is a New Hamburg boy and has been in business for 18 years. He is an enthusiastic saddler and shows with commendable pride a large number of tools and dies used in making up stylish harness. His equipment in this connection is far superior to anything found in the ordinary harness shop. lie enjoys a large patronage in and for many miles around the town. This is borne out when it is stated that he shipped nearly 40 sets of harness last year to outside points. A further criterion of his good work is the fact that he sells and resells to the same customer many times. A large and handsome dust proof cabinet contains many samples of his best work. Two men besides himself arc kept busy. A full line of trunks, bags and valises is also carried.

9564 Death date and burial location have never been determined. In his Bible, which has been passed down to descendants, he prefaced his signature with the title "Commodore". This vocation has never been proven. Why he moved from NY state into Ontario has also left his descendants with a question. Unfortunately those who would have known the answers passed on before these questions became a matter of interest.

Jeptha located in Waterloo County to the community of Waterloo-Berlin (now Kitchener) and was a teacher there. He also farmed in the area. About 1827 he married Mary Moxley, native of VA, whose mother, Delilah, and step-father, Daniel Eby, moved from near McClellandtown, PA to Waterloo in 1818.

9566 "Percy DeKay's Death"

The remains of Percival DeKay reached here on Wednesday evening in charge of two of his railway associates, Oscar Hamilton and George Cribb, both Canadians. The funeral took place on Thursday and was well attended, the Odd Fellows having charge of it, and performed the burial rites of the society. The Rev. Mr. Howell was the officiating clergyman. While the sudden and unexpected death of such a promising young man is sad in the extreme, a bright light shines through the dark cloud. A year ago while attending a series of meetings here, he professed faith in Christ, was without doubt soundly converted, and died trusting the Saviour. The particulars of his sad death are learned from the Huntington, Indiana Democrat. He was a brakeman on a freight train of about 35 cars and was going down a grade. The engineer and fireman saw something wrong in a switch, when in an instant the engine, on which DeKay happened to be at the time, was derailed. We copy as follows from the paper mentioned above:-

DeKay told the story of his miraculous escape from instant death as follows: "Toohey jumped first and Coppins followed. Then I tried to go, but before I could jump, the engine turned over and I was caught in the cab with my left hand fast between two pieces of something. I tried to get loose , but couldn't. The steam was escaping and scalding my legs, but I closed my mouth tight to keep from inhaling any of it. I reached out with my right hand and got hold of something, and then bracing my feet against the cab, pulled my left arm out, even if it did break the bones."

Eye witnesses say they never saw more nerve exhibited by an injured man than that of DeKay. He boarded at the Canfield House and he was taken there upon arrival. Dr. Loring, of Rochester, who accompanied the men from the wreck, and Dr. Severance, attended him and found it necessary to amputate his left arm near the elbow. His legs were very badly scalded from the hips clear to the feet, the burns being deep. He showed remarkable grit and bore up under the trying time with great nerve. During the afternoon he called his particular friend, Oscar Hamilton, also employed on the road, and when Attorney R.G. Wyman had been called, DeKay made a will. He is of a good family, his father being a wealthy man in Berlin, Ontario, and the son was possessed of considerable property in his own right. After he had made the will he apparently began failing, and at 8 o'clock in the evening he died. He was a well educated man, twenty-five years of age and had only been here about four months. 
Percival Dekay
 
9567 He worked as an brakeman on trains. He died from injuries resulting from a boiler accident, was scalded and had to have an amputation but died soon after. His body was returned to Kitchener for burial in the family plot. The accident happened outside of Huntington, Indiana. Percival Dekay
 
9568 About the same year, George Stewart's sons established the Stewart Coal Company. Their venture has met with success through close attention to business and personal popularity. The father was for many years a traveller for the W. G. & R. Company. Two local associates for the company were Ben Robinson and Robert Wood. Those were the days when W. A. Greene, now of Chatham, N.J., was the firm's manufacturer, and trained up his successor, Frank Hodgins. George DeKleinhans too was on the manufacturing staff, but now is with the John Forsyth Shirt Company. What an interesting story Mr. DeKleinhans could tell of the shirt and collar industry.

9611 Frances Denney of Woodstock, born: Nov. 1929 in Woodstock, died: April 22, 2018 of a heart attack
News Jul 22, 2018 by Valerie Hill Waterloo Region Record

KITCHENER - Being a reporter in the 1950s was a demanding enough job on its own, but when Frances Denney was hired as women's editor at the Record, an idealistic 21-year-old, she also had to face sexism in the industry.
Female reporters would lose their jobs once they married and there was a strict company dress code for ladies: dresses and skirts only. Frances, who didn't like to be told 'no' refused to abide by such silly rules and years later recounted "Good grief, if women in Parliament could wear pant suits, I failed to see why we couldn't."
She also had to face the irritating issue of women being banned from full membership in the K-W Press Club, launched in 1953.
The organization included male media types working in newspapers, radio and television. Lawyers, doctors, real-estate salesmen and city councillors could join as associate members.
Frances saw the value in this club, an after hours place for the guys to gather and chat. Likely it was about the best news source for intrepid reporters, particularly if their quarry was loose lipped, the result of a few too many whiskeys.
"Everybody who was anybody in town wanted to be a member," Frances once told a reporter describing how women had the great privilege of washing dishes and hanging decorations at the club and they could enter as guests, but only with a male member.
Fed up with the sexist rule, one day in the late 1950s Frances organized a protest with her female colleagues at the Record.
"We marched around the newsroom and said we would not help with social functions at the press club," she said. The club's bylaws were changed.
From protester to president, in 1971 Frances became the press club's first female to hold that office. In fact it was thought that she was the first female president of any mixed membership press club in Canada.
In the newsroom, Frances was equally fierce defending her views. As the Record's women's editor, she had engaged in verbal battles with editor-in-chief, C.B. Schmidt, (Cully) whose nickname was "Iron Duke."

Cully was fair but not a man to trifle with, yet Frances was fearless when defending her ideas. Shewanted the content of the women's section to be more hard-hitting and not just directed at housewives looking for recipes and fashion tips.
One day, their argument grew heated and Frances became so enraged she hurled a Coke bottle at Cully when he had his back turned. Luckily she missed and Frances eventually persuaded the crusty editor to see things her way. The women's section was opened up and would eventually be called Lifestyles.
Frances had her victory but she was not finished progressing newsrooms for women quite yet.
In 1971, she served as a member of the Ontario Press Council, an appointed position and she was its first professional female member. She also helped develop a guidebook on sexist language for print media. In 1977, Frances became chair of the Western Ontario Newspaper Awards, the first female in that role.
Retired Record publisher, Wayne MacDonald admired Frances, a woman he described as having a strong personality and able to "hold her own against anybody."
"She was a forward thinker, in addition to her talent," said Wayne. "She changed how the whole newsroom felt about women and she helped moved the newsroom forward."
At the same time, he said, she didn't spend a lot of time as an activist, it was more through her ability to excel at her job and not accept any sexist policies that changed attitudes about female journalists.
"She was a real trail blazer," he said.
Frances was born an only child in Woodstock. After high school she studied journalism and business administration while working in the office of a lumber company where she introduced a company newsletter.
Following that little taste of journalism, Frances joined the Woodstock Sentinel Review in 1949 as women's editor. As was typical for most small newspapers, she also had to take her own photographs and write features.
With only one year's experience under her belt, Frances was hired by what was then called the Kitchener-Waterloo Record, as women's editor. Under her watch, the section expanded to become a wide ranging, topical selection of general interest features. She also highlighted stories on women in leadership roles. Several of the features were written by Frances herself as she never had quite enough staff.
Though this globe trotting journalist never had children, Frances did get married, to Record chief photographer Richard Sutton in 1963. He died of cancer in 1976. Wayne remembers him as "one of the best, most thoughtful and creative photographers I have ever seen."
Though Frances had made many inroads for women journalists and contributed to the paper in countless ways, there was one more towering hurdle heading her way, one she could not or would not overcome: technology. Frances wanted to continue doing her work the way she always had, but the paper had advanced and management was forced to make a tough decision: replace Frances as department head without losing her as a columnist.
Frances was only in her early 40s, with years ahead of her as a journalist so she was offered a columnist's position full time, responsible for writing about all the people and events and organizations in the region, three times a week. Frances resurrected the community column she had started years earlier but had to give up due to lack of time.
"Just Talking" would be a comfortable, chatty style of information-sharing that would run for the next 17 years and help boost thousands of community groups and projects. If Frances wrote about an upcoming event, it was guaranteed to sell out, her influence was that powerful and trusted.
Her column covered everything from driving tips in bad weather to high school awards and she is credited with not only writing about the events, but helping shape them. If it was happening in Waterloo Region, Frances knew about it and included the details in her column.
Retired editor Carol Jankowski remembers Frances as being "fun but she had a temper and she could carry a grudge."
Carol also recalls just how deeply connected Frances was to the community as a volunteer and a journalist who seemed to know everybody.
"She would say 'I wonder how the strawberries (season) are coming along," said Carol, recalling how Frances knew exactly who to call for the answer.
"She had a prodigious memory, especially if it was food related," said Carol.
In 1993 Frances was recognized with the prestigious Rotary International Paul Harris Fellowship for the impact her column had on the community.
In August 1980 Frances was presented with the inaugural Hadassah-WIZO Woman of the Year award, created for non-Jewish people who helped foster greater understanding between Jews and Gentiles. In 1977 she was named KW Oktoberfest Woman of the Year in the professional category, among many other awards.
In 1992, after 42 years at the Record, Frances took what she referred to as "early retirement" moved back into her childhood home in Woodstock and largely disappeared from public view. It had been her choice not to mark her death with an obituary or a funeral.
Carol said her old friend really disconnected from the region though she had served as its greatest advocate and cheerleading for four decades.
"She had a great life in journalism," said Wayne. "She could have done any job in that newsroom, she had wide ranging skills and talents."

Clayton Freed Derstine, born 17 August 1891, died 31 August 1967, was the son of Mahlon and Mary (Freed) Derstine of Souderton, Pennsylvania. Following his conversion in 1911, "C.F." Derstine joined the Souderton Mennonite congregation. His zeal in organizing cottage meetings for Bible study and young peoples' Bible meetings launched him on a lifelong mission of evangelism and teaching throughout the Mennonite Church (MC) and beyond.

Derstine was ordained a minister in 1914. He and his first wife, Gertrude Hangey (m. 1912), served at the Mennonite Mission in Altoona, Pennsylvania, 1913-1915. Within 13 months of his ordination, C. F. preached 520 sermons, as he accepted invitations from congregations in various states to conduct evangelistic services. He served as pastor of the Roanoke Mennonite Church at Eureka , Illinois , 1915-1924. He was ordained a bishop in 1921. Derstine moved with his family to Ontario in 1924 in response to a call from First Mennonite Church, Kitchener, where a division had splintered the congregation. During his pastorate (1924-1964), membership quadrupled. Derstine continued his evangelistic itineraries throughout Canada and the United States. His pulpit ministry stood as the focal point of his contribution to the church. After the death of his first wife, he married Mary Kolb in 1927.

His assignments in the Mennonite Conference of Ontario (Mennonite Church) included: conference executive committee (1925, 1930-33, 1936-30); bishop of the Toronto Mission (1938-1944) and of the Central District (1961-1966); Mennonite Mutual Benefit Association board (1944-1947); Colonization Committee (1953-1955); and the Ontario Mennonite Bible School faculty (1929-1948). He served the Mennonite Church (MC) general conference as associate member on the Relief Committee (1944-1946) and as editor of the Christian Monitor (1923-29; editor of the "World News" section until 1953).

His ministry in the community included founding a Summer Vacation Bible School for children, the first to be held in any denomination in Canada. With the support of community churches and the city of Kitchener, he founded the Kitchener House of Friendship, a ministry for the homeless.3a

9643 DERSTINE, Clayton Kolb - Our friend, husband and father died on Good Friday at Toronto Western Hospital. Clay would have liked to have been remembered both as a writer and as a pioneer in establishing French public schools in Toronto. Clay wrote throughout his life (including book reviews for The Globe and Mail) but his magnum opus is his book Treegodspace . Clay believed in multi-culturalism and in Canadians speaking both official languages, and was active in left-wing politics. He devoted his considerable talent and energy to working to establish a French public school system in Toronto, and the success that system is now enjoying is due in no small part to his efforts. Clay was born in 1928 to Mary Elizabeth Kolb Derstine and Bishop C. F. Derstine of First Mennonite Church, Kitchener. Clay grew up in Kitchener and was a football star at KCI and Waterloo Lutheran. He came to Toronto to do graduate studies, but fled to Paris, where he sought to come to terms with the divergence between many of society's values and his own. He taught himself French from friends, books and the street, and worked at UNESCO. He returned to Canada in 1958, met and married Joyce Carter, his love and companion for the next 50 years. Their son is Dirk Derstine of Toronto. Clay was also blessed with a daughter, Julie Saavedra, born in France. He also leaves his daughter-in-law, Jennifer Penman; his son-in-law, Téo Saavedra and his grandchildren, Madeleine, Benjamin, Lou and Atina. His brother John and sisters Ruth, Yvonne and Grace will all miss him as will their families and the rest of his large family. Clay was a believer in wonder, joy and close observation triumphing over order-mongering and those who define interest, profit and riches in money. We loved him and we are all blessed by his memory and example, while poorer for his absence. A celebration of his life will be held Sunday, April 6 at the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, 106 Trinity Street, Toronto, at 5 p.m. until whenever.

9649 Olean City Police Captain Hassett was shot and killed by a burglar, Nelson H. Dessler, of Canada, that he was attempting to arrest. A civilian heard someone inside the Droney Lumber Company offices, located in the Masonic Temple building, which she knew was closed. She notified the police, and Captain Hassett responded. As Hassett opened the door to the inner office, Dessler stepped from behind the door and attacked. They struggled for several minutes.

Dessler was able to reach his revolver and fired one shot, missing Hassett. Captain Hassett drew his revolver and fired rapidly. The three shots hit Dessler, who was still able to fire again. This time Dessler's shot hit Captain Hassett in the head, killing him.

Although wounded, Dessler managed to flee out of the building, where he was met by two more patrolmen. Officer Fred Vollmer fired his revolver, striking Dessler in the leg. Dessler fired several shots was still able to flee both patrolmen.

Dessler was apprehended a short time later at his hotel room in the Olean House. He died from his gunshot wounds 48 hours later.

CAPT. HASSETT'S MURDERER IN A CRITICAL CONDITION

The Report at the Hour of Going to Press was that His Temperature is Very High, His Pulse Rapid, and He is Very Nervous and Restless. Doctors give Little Hope for Recovery - Capt. Hassett's Funeral will be Held Wednesday Morning at 9:30 O'clock, From St. Mary's Church - the Story of Dressler's Record of Crime

Police Captain Timothy Hassett, who was murdered yesterday morning by a burglar as told in yesterday's special edition of the Times, was born in Elmira, N.Y., a little over forty-five years ago. When about twelve years of age, he removed with his parents to Olean, and for thirty-three years had been a resident of this city. By trade, he was a bricklayer and stone mason, and for many years followed that line of work in Olean and vicinity, having charge of gangs of men on many important contracts. For the past eleven years he had been a member of the local police force, during nine years of which he was police captain. Towards the close of Mayor Franchot's administration, Captain Hassett did special patrol duty, and when Howard Strong was elected mayor, he appointed Mr. Hassett a regular member of the force. After two years of patrol duty, he was made captain, which office he held to the time of his death, performing his duties in a manner that gave satisfaction to all, and as one mayor succeeded another, there was never a thought of removing Tim Hassett from the force. He often expressed himself as having no desire whatever to be chief, though there is no question but that his executive ability would have made him a valuable head of the police department. He was one of the best known police officers in western New York. Besides his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. John Hassett of West Green Street he is survived by his wife and seven children, Arthur of Buffalo, Tom, Mrs. Samuel Petty, Mayme, Anna, Celia and Raymond Hassett, all of whom reside in this city. There are also six sisters, Mrs. Charles Denney of Lawrenceville, Ill., Mrs. Peter McGraw of Wesleyville, Pa., Mrs. E. J. Hannon of Oil city, Mrs. J.H. Ryan, Mrs. Henry Baker and Miss Ella Hassett of Olean, and one brother, John Hassett of this city. Deceased was a member of the Tribe of Ben Hur and of the state Degree of Honor. The funeral will be held from St. Mary's Church at 9:30 o'clock, Wednesday morning, solemn high mass being celebrated by Rev. Dan Hamel. The members of the police department will be present in a body and several officials from nearby cities and towns have signified their intention of coming to Olean. It will doubtless be one of the most largely attended funerals ever held in this city. The dead officer, whose body now lied at his late home on West Green Street, is dressed in his uniform, his police captain's shield being pinned on his breast.

After Dressler, the man who did the killing, had been arrested, his suit case was searched, and in it was found a birthday card from his mother. The writing is in German, but was translated by Alderman Lang, it reads as follows: "My Dear Son. Today is your birthday, January 22nd. Twenty-seven years have gone, my loving son. Many heavy hours have we passed through this year, but I am glad to know that everything God does is for the best. My loving son, I wish you much luck, and God speed, in which all is trusted, and may He always be with you. Your loving mother." In the suit case were also found several cards of false teeth, plates and other dental supplies, and it is believed that Dressler was concerned in the robbery of several dental offices in Dunkirk and Fredonia, which took place last Friday night. His record, as it develops more fully, is a bad one. He had served two terms in Canadian penitentiaries, and was at one time a leader of one of the worst gangs of crooks that ever infested Detroit and vicinity. About ten years ago he was arrested in this city of Officer Matt Hart, on the charge of robbing the hardware store of Benjamin & Co., now the Miller Hardware Co., at which time he was also charged with shooting. Last evening Detective Captain Seth Conover of buffalo, one of the nerviest officers in the employ of the Pennsylvania railroad company, and a close friend of Captain Hassett, arrived in Olean. Captain Conover says that he arrested Dressler about 2 years ago for robbing two boys, and later he broke jail at Emporium. When Dressler arrived in Olean on Sturdy, he registered at the Olean House, and tried to sell to Clerk W.R. Hodnett, about $4 worth of two cent stamps, which he said had been sent to him in payment for a bill. The stamps were in the regulation sheets of fifty to a sheet, and Mr. Hodnett took a dollar's worth of them, thinking the explanation given as a plausible one. From this fact it is reasonable to suppose that at some time Dressler was mixed up in a post-office robbery. He was evidently open to any proposition, but confessed that his specialty was the robbery of dental offices. It has developed that after shooting Captain Hassett and eluding the police, Dressler returned to the Olean House about 8 o'clock in the morning. He came from the direction of State Street, and on entering the hotel office, inquired if the elevator was running. Being told that it was, he smiled, and said he guessed he would walk up to his room. The day clerk, who had just come on and the bell boys, noticed that he staggered as he walked, but supposed he had been drinking. Then he locked himself in his room, with two bullets through his bowels, one through the hip and one in the leg, knowing full well that he must either die there or be taken prisoner. When stripped at the hospital, it was found that both bullets in the abdomen had gone through him, one of them being found in one of his shoes. His clothing was soaked with blood, and had he been left alone a few hours longer, he must have bled to death. From one of his vest pockets was taken a lady's gold watch, the stem portion of which had been shot away and the crystal broken. This watch he gave to Under Sheriff Wait, and asked him to keep it, as a remembrance of the day Mr. Walt said if he would give him the address of his people he would send the watch to them, but Dressler replied that he did not want his mother to know that he had committed murder. If he died, he did not want her to know what became of him. After his arrest, and when he was landed in the cell, Dressler was apparently the least excited person in Olean. He lighted a cigarette, smiled and asked: "Do they hang a man for murder in this state?" On being told that the death penalty was inflicted in the electric chair, he said: "Well, it will never get me." It was misled last evening by one who has known him for years, that in 1903 he received a five year sentence in the Kingston, Ontario, penitentiary, and after serving about two years was released on parole, a petition to that effect having been largely signed. His parents are in well-to-do circumstances, and reside in Berlin, Canada. A request made to the Olean General Hospital as to Dressler's condition today, was met with the reply that they were not permitted to give out any information. It was learned from Chief of Police Caspman that Dressler passed a fairly comfortable night, but the report from Dr. J.E.K. Morris, at the hour of going to press is that there has been a turn for the worse. The man's temperature is very high, his pulse is rapid, and he is in a very nervous condition. The physicians do not talk at all favorably regarding his probable recovery. Both bullets, they state, pierced the intestines, and tomorrow or the day after will be the most critical ones in the man's condition. The story of the tragedy in detail will be found on pages 3 and 7 of this issue of the times.

Isaiah Dettweiler
 
9655 Mary Viola Dettweiler was born March 3, 1921 near Breslau, Ontario to Isaiah and Lucinda (Bechtel) Dettweiler. She was the second oldest in a family of eight living children - four girls and four boys. Mary's parents loved the Lord and as a young girl Mary asked Jesus Christ to be her Saviour and worked for Him ever since. As a young lady, Mary trained as a nurses' assistant and worked in Ontario. She spent a year in Voluntary Service (VS) in a home for unwed mothers in Washington, DC. While home from VS, Mary was picking fruit in the same orchard as John Sayer, an Alberta farmer. He picked out a "Peach" and after a long distance courtship he suggested they start their own family tree. They were married Oct 24, 1953 and Mary moved to the Sayer home farm west of Carstairs, Alberta. She soon became known as a friendly, hospitable neighbour. John and Mary raised their three children Nancy (Johnson), Charlotte (Stace) and Melvin on the farm. John and Mary gave their children a stable and happy home. Active in their community church, West Zion Mennonite Church over the years, Mary taught Sunday School, worked with WMSC and had a open home for anyone needing a place to go. She also volunteered with the Didsbury Auxiliary and Meals on Wheels. She was always ready to offer a hand if she knew of someone in need, and many people will remember her for a kindness she gave. Mary always enjoyed gardening, growing enough for her family and to share with others. She took delight in each grandchild and has always been involved in their lives as well as faithfully praying for each one. In August 1999, John and Mary made their home in Sunrise Village, Olds. They have made many new friends and it wasn't long before Mary again shared her love with those around her through her kind words and loving gestures. Mourning her loss are many friends as well as her husband John; children, Nancy (Stephen) Johnston, Charlotte (Greg) Stace, Melvin (Priscilla) Sayer; grandchildren Aaron (Rausheen), Roland, Shannon, Janna, Marissa, Luke, Allen, Angela, Charlotte and Melody; siblings, Harold (Margaret) Dettweiler, Ward (Beatrice) Dettweiler, Clarke (Ruth) Dettweiler, Ruby (Silvin) Roth, Norma Dettweiler and brother-in-law Laverne Good and sister-in-law Joyce Dettweiler; brothers and sisters-in-law, Richard (Lillian) Sayer, Clare (Jane) Good, Alberta Cressman and many nieces and nephews.Predeceased by her parents, sister Margaret Good, and brothers Glenn (1989) and David. Mary Viola Dettweiler

DETTWEILER, Norma

December 7, 1927 - December 26, 2013
Passed away peacefully on Thursday December 26, 2013 at Fairview Mennonite Home, Cambridge.

She was born 86 years ago on December 7, 1927 in Waterloo Township, near Breslau, to Isaiah and Lucinda (Bechtel) Dettweiler. She was the sixth born in a family of nine, eight of whom reached adulthood.

She attended Riverbank School until grade 8 when it was the expectation that she would end her schooling to help at home. A time of illness at age 15 changed things. Norma had already determined that teaching was her calling. When Rockway Mennonite Collegiate opened in 1945 Norma was allowed to pursue her secondary school education. She graduated from grade 12 with the first graduating class at Rockway Mennonite Collegiate, grade 13 at Preston High School and then attended Stratford Normal School, graduating as a teacher in 1951. After teaching for several years, Norma completed her formal education at Goshen College in Indiana where she received her B.A. degree in 1957.

Throughout her career, "Miss Dettweiler" taught at a number of Waterloo Township schools including Victoria, Riverbank, Shantz Station, Maple Grove and Breslau. She ended her teaching career at Smithson School in Kitchener when she retired in 1985. Norma taught continuously for 34 years including a 2 year term voluntary teaching assignment in with Mennonite Mission Board in Alberta.

Norma's life also revolved around serving in her church and various organizations. She was baptized into membership at Cressman Mennonite Church (Breslau Mennonite Church) on November 26, 1939 and contributed in various capacities including Vacation Bible School, the Missions Committee, the Music and Worship Committee and Congregational Chairperson. She was the founding editor of The Branch, the congregation's newsletter. Norma enjoyed gardening and supported the House of Friendship by supplying vegetables from her large garden. She joined the Board of Directors of House of Friendship and served in the role of Secretary for 10 years. Norma was a life member of Fraser Lake Camp near Bancroft, Ontario.

Norma travelled extensively with friends and family. Many of her nieces have fond memories of time spent with her during these trips.

Norma is survived by three brothers, Harold (Margaret), Ward (Beatrice) and Clarke. Also by brother-in-in law Silvin Roth and sister-in-law Joyce Dettweiler.

She was predeceased by her parents; her sisters Margaret Good, Mary Sayer and Ruby Roth; her brothers Glenn and David. Also by her brothers-in-law Laverne Good and John Sayer and sisters-in-law Katherine Dettweiler and Ruth Dettweiler.

Norma will be remembered by her 33 nieces and nephews and their families. She will also be remembered by her Dettweiler and Bechtel cousins.

Visitation will be held at Fairview Mennonite Home in the auditorium on Monday December 30th from 2-4pm. Visitation will continue at Breslau Mennonite Church on December 31st at 10am followed by a service celebrating her life at 11am. Interment will follow in the Breslau Mennonite Church cemetery.

The family extends sincere appreciation for the care given to Norma by the staff at Fairview Mennonite Home where Norma has resided for 20 years.

Donations in her memory to Mennonite Central Committee, House of Friendship or a charity of your choice can be arranged through the BARTHEL FUNERAL HOME at 519-653-3251.

DANIEL B. DETWEILER 1860-1919

Daniel B. Detweiler was one of the three "fathers of hydro" in Ontario. After years of hard effort, in association with others, his dream of hydro electric power as a provincial undertaking became a reality. He travelled dusty county roads on his bicycle seeking the support of councils in the project.

A cairn erected in 1935 in his native Roseville is a monument to his participation in the enterprise. In 1963, Ontario Hydro named the transformer station at Petersburg after him. In 1918 he developed water power near Michipicoten on Lake Superior and organized the Algoma factory and in 1901 joined a shoe company.

Detweiler was a leading member and President of the Board of Trade and a member of the Kitchener Light Commission

Rev. Enoch R. Detweiler
 
9705 Enoch Detweiler," was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, March 7th, 1818. In 1822 his parents moved to Canada and settled a little west of Roseville, Ontario, where he was raised. On January 18th, 1842, he was married to Abigail, daughter of George B. and Mary (Shoemaker) Bechtel. She was born near Pottstown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, October 8th, 1821. After their marriage they moved on his father's old homestead where they resided until his death which took place September 18th, 1874. When a young man he was converted unto the Lord and soon thereafter joined himself with the Mennonite body. On June 5th, 1859, Mr Detweiler was ordained as a minister of the Gospel for the Detweiler field of labor. In all his sermons and exhortations he urged upon his followers holiness of life, and uprightness and godliness in all manner of conversation. What should it benefit one to be a full believer in the tenets of Simon Menno, if his actions did not conform thereto, and his walk be upright and pure. In a holy and consecrated life, therefore, as he taught, did all christian godliness consist. But in the midst of his days the arrow of death bore our beloved minister, brother and friend from the scenes of his life's activity, and from the companionship of his beloved wife and family besides that of his faithful circle of followers, and his freed spirit winged its course beyond the skies where we are promised rest from all our labors. His widow has her home with her son, Aaron, who resides on the old homestead. She is quite active yet for a person of her age. Their family consisted of ten children"

Roseville Mennonite Church (Detweiler Meeting House)

Services began in homes in the area with the arrival of the first settlers around 1822. A first meeting house was built about 1830 approximately a half-mile west of Roseville, on the south side of the road. One acre of land on the northeast corner of Lot 37, Concession 11, North Dumfries Township, was transferred from Samuel C. Snyder. The deed for the property was dated 1830, but it was not registered until August 1842. A stone meeting house was built in 1855 just slightly east of the old log meeting house; the church was dedicated on November 25, 1855 by the congregation's first minister, Jacob F. Detweiler. Henry Shantz, Enoch Detweiler and Solomon Gehman were the ministers who followed Jacob F. Detweiler.

Sunday School began in 1924 and in 1933 Young People's Bible Meetings were organized. The latter meetings were held in conjunction with those of the Blenheim Mennonite Church. A Sunday School classroom was added to the Detweiler church in 1956.

Moses Bowman, a layman from First Mennonite Church in Kitchener, was ordained minister to Detweiler Mennonite Church in 1938 where he continued to serve until the time of his death in 1964. The small congregation was served by visiting ministers until it disbanded in January 1966. Some of the remaining families are reported to have joined with Blenheim Mennonite Church at that time.

Snyder.-Esther Detweiler, beloved wife of Albert Snyder of Bloomingdale, Ont., was born Feb. 21, 1851; died Dec. 12, 1936; aged 85 y. 9 m. 21 d. On April 14, 1874 she was united in marriage to Albert Snyder, with whom she shared the joys and cares of life nearly 63 years. There remain her loving husband, 1 son (Addison D.) at home, 1 adopted daughter (Mrs. Selina Weber of Kitchener), (3 daughters died in infancy); also 1 grandson (John W. Snyder) and 2 granddaughters (Estella and Eileen Weber of Kitchener) and 1 brother (R. B. Detweiler of Ingersoll, Ont.)-the last surviving member of a family of fourteen, who had all grown to see the youngest of the family married before the family circle was broken. She also leaves a large number of relatives and friends. She had a wide circle of friends whom she had made by her always cheerful smile. We mourn, but not without hope; for her desire has been granted and prayers answered to depart this world of care and pain to be with her blessed Savior where sorrow and sighing shall flee away. She was converted in her youth and united with Snyder's congregation, of which she always was a faithful member until God called her home. She always sought the Lord's house when health permitted. The last seven years she was denied this privilege, many a time. After one week's illness of pneumonia she passed peacefully on. The home loses a loving mother, the Church a faithful believer, but our loss is her eternal gain. Funeral services were conducted at the home by H. W. Stevanus assisted at the church by Jonas Snider and Simon Martin. Texts, I Pet. 3: 21, 22; Acts 1 :11. Interment in adjoining cemetery.

"In silence she suffered,
With a smile her pain she bore,
Until God's angel whispered
'Come home and suffer no more."'

During the time of his ministry the congregation has, on his field of labor, increased in membership. His family consists of six children"

Detwiler, George Bechtel (1847-1931).

George Bechtel Detwiler was born near Roseville in Waterloo Co., ON. A Mennonite, he married Harriet Tyson, a Brethren in Christ from Pennsylvania, in 1870. Four years later he joined her denomination. After teaching school for several years, he moved in 1885 with his family to a farm near Fort Erie, where he became a minister in the Bertie congregation and helped organize the first Sunday school in at least two Ontario Brethren in Christ congregations.
In 1899 the Detwilers moved to Abilene, KS where he became first associate editor and a few months later editor of his denomination's paper, Evangelical Visitor. In 1902 the editorial offices and the Detwilers moved to Harrisburg, PA. Although he did not accept the doctrine of sanctification that was being increasingly favored in the Brethren in Christ Church, he endeavored in his editing to maintain a balance between opposing positions on the doctrine. This editorial policy, however, led in 1918 to his replacement as editor by Vernon Stump, a strong holiness advocate. Thereafter, under Stump, Evangelical Visitor became a holiness paper. From 1917 to 1925 he taught Bible at Messiah Bible College (later Messiah College). Throughout his life he was a respected Bible commentator and Bible conference speaker.

Roseville Mennonite Church (Detweiler Meeting House)

Services began in homes in the area with the arrival of the first settlers around 1822. A first meeting house was built about 1830 approximately a half-mile west of Roseville, on the south side of the road. One acre of land on the northeast corner of Lot 37, Concession 11, North Dumfries Township, was transferred from Samuel C. Snyder. The deed for the property was dated 1830, but it was not registered until August 1842. A stone meeting house was built in 1855 just slightly east of the old log meeting house; the church was dedicated on November 25, 1855 by the congregation's first minister, Jacob F. Detweiler. Henry Shantz, Enoch Detweiler and Solomon Gehman were the ministers who followed Jacob F. Detweiler.

Sunday School began in 1924 and in 1933 Young People's Bible Meetings were organized. The latter meetings were held in conjunction with those of the Blenheim Mennonite Church. A Sunday School classroom was added to the Detweiler church in 1956.

Moses Bowman, a layman from First Mennonite Church in Kitchener, was ordained minister to Detweiler Mennonite Church in 1938 where he continued to serve until the time of his death in 1964. The small congregation was served by visiting ministers until it disbanded in January 1966. Some of the remaining families are reported to have joined with Blenheim Mennonite Church at that time.
