  • Notes 
    • "Enoch Cornell, father of Jonas, a thrifty agriculturist, was born in the State of New York in 1788, and there in a well regulated home received wholesome rearing. Practical knowledge of agriculture decided him upon reaching manhood to engage in that pursuit, which he followed for the most part throughout his active career. After attaining some success in this line, and while still a young man, he married in Ontario, Mary Sipes, who was born in the State of New York, and of this union there were nine children: Sylvanus, who was a farmer of Bosanquet township, Lambton County, for many years, died in Manitoba. Joanna married Daniel Wintemute. Harriet was the wife of Aaron Cornell, both being now deceased. Joseph and Andrew, who were both residents of Bosanquet township, are deceased. John lives in Thedford. Jonas mentioned elsewhere. Stephen, who resided in Bosanquet township, and Hannah, who married Alexander Ketchie, are now deceased.

      After marriage, Mr. Cornell settled upon a tract of new land in Beverley township, County of Wentworth, Ont., and began making improvements. He opened up new areas, put the land under excellent cultivation, and and was soon carrying on a flourishing industry. His well-furrowed fields yielded excellent crops of grain and vegetables, and his pasture and orchards were among the finest in his locality. In his methods he was progressive, and he equipped his farm with everything necessarty for carrying on all branches of general agriculture. Success crowned his efforts, and he in time became not only a leading agriculturist of his vicinty, but also a throughly properous one. He continued his labours in this section the rest of his active life, and there died in 1848."1a
