      __________________

      Dr. Charlton came here in 1902 and served on the Hespeler School Board in 1904-1905 and 1906 and some time later went to Galt where he took quite a prominent part in the Public Life of the community and was on one occasion Candidate of his Political Party for a seat in Parliament. His son, David, now Judge of the County of Waterloo, was born here.

      Dr. Charlton's first name was Sylvester and while he taught school in Puslinch before going into Medicine some of the farmers in the section used to call him "Yes". Among these was an old Irishman, who used commonly the words "Thank God" in his conversation. Once Dr. Charlton got settled here some of these old friends paid him a visit. This old Irish chap came in one day and after the customary greetings the old Gentleman asked "Well, Ves., and how is things goin?" The Dr. replied that he was getting along very well and that just at the moment he was very busy; adding that there were an awful lot of people sick just now. The old man just said "Thank God." It amused the Doctor who told me the story at the time.2a
