      HISTORY OF GRAND RIVER LODGE No. 151, G.R.C. 1861-1961

      ...In 1866 Charles Hendry of Conestoga who had occupied both the Junior and Senior Warden's chairs, became the Worshipful Master. He also carried on as Master in 1867. He was followed by his Senior Warden, W. Washburn, in 186S, but he again was called back to preside as Master for an additional three year term, during 1869, 1870 and 1871. A special tribute must be paid to W. Bro. Hendry who carried the responsibilities of Master for no less than five years. He was also the first member to serve Wellington as District Deputy Grand Master...1a

      _______________________

      Charles Hendry, a respected citizen of Waterloo and generally well-known as a business-man and official, died on Monday afternoon in the Berlin-Waterloo Hospital. He had been seriously ill for about 8 days, and when his condition became significantly worse on Monday evening, he was transported to the hospital. The deceased was born in Scotland and emigrated to Canada in his youth. His parents died early and he was raised by Mr Henry Schneider, father of Mayor Schneider of Waterloo. He was the founder of "Blockstaedel" (Log-cabin Town), now Conestogo, where for many years he owned a store; he was a township and county Councillor, Reeve and Warden, president of the Waterloo Mutual Fire Insurance Company and the Reform Association of North Waterloo and lived to the age of 73 years.2a

      THE WOOLWICH COUNCIL

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

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

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