  • Notes 
    • Angus McKellar was my grandfather; he moved to Galt (Cambridge) as a young boy (possibly around the time his father died in 1917?), attended GCI, was a member of Lincoln Avenue United Church, and lived in Cambridge until his death in 1992. He was a stationary engineer at Galt British Forge, and a steam-engine hobbyist.
