  • Notes 
    • SAMUEL CASSEL was born on a farm two miles northeast of Washington in the Township of Blenheim in the year 1858. In the year 1861 his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry B. Cassel, moved to a farm on the Huron Road in the Township of Wilmot, three miles west of Haysville. Here Mr. Cassel spent his boyhood days. After securing an education at S.S. No. 5, where he distinguished himself as a brilliant scholar, he embarked in business for himself. He purchased the homestead in 1885. Three years ago he bought the west half of Lot 27, known as "Spruce Farm", adjoining his own property, from Mr. Manley Mark, thereby securing one of the finest 200 acre farms in the county. Mr. Cassel was married to Miss Mark, eldest daughter of the late Samuel Mark, in the year 1885. Mr. Cassel has won an enviable reputation as a feeder of export cattle. Visitors from all sections visit his large barns to admire the beautiful cattle that are to be found in his stables. He feeds 70 exporters every year. He has been school trustee for three terms, besides being continuous secretary-treasurer of his school section for several years. He was a member of the school board when the present schoolhouse was built and was largely instrumental in making it one of the finest schoolhouses in the county. He is a member of the Church of England and takes an active interest in its welfare. In 1902 he was elected township councillor and has since been a very creditable member. He was appointed a justice of the peace in 1903 and reappointed by the present government in 1905.
