      MCKELLAR written by Mrs. Angus McKellar of Killean

      I was born in Dumfries-shire in 1821, and came to Puslinch with my father, the late Walter Bone, in 1835, and in 1840 married Angus McKellar. When Killean and district was near all forest we settled on lot 7 on the first concession, where we have lived ever since, and raised a family of 5 daughters and 6 sons, who have homes in different parts of U.S.A. and Ontario. I am one of the very first settlers that is left. Not one other is left to remember the early days on the first concession, and the trials that the first settlers had to bear, carrying our flour on our backs from Galt. Our neighbours were Archibald Ramsay, Neil Thomson, Neil Currie, Archibald McMaster, Alex Ramsay, and Norman Ramsay. I can remember when the old log school was built, and the contract was let to one William Lamont, and in size 28 x 36 feed, one door and five windows with rough boards for seats and desks. The trustees were A. McMaster, Angus McKellar and Matthew McPhatter and the first teacher was Neil Currie. Wolves, bears, and deer were numerous in those days around Puslinch and Mill Creek and the wolves were very destructive sometimes.
