  • Notes 
    • Coming to Galt at the age of six with his mother, his mother married Absalom Shade. He began working as a clerk in Shade "Red Store" and by 1835 he had become one of Galt's leading merchants. He also dealt wheat. He co-founded the Dumfries Foundry with James Crombie in 1844. In the early 1850's the price of flour dropped and with other financial dealings he lost nearly everything. He retired early and died in 1861.
