  • Notes 
    • J. S. MILLS, druggist, Brantford, was born in the County of Simcoe, Ontario, April 3, 1850, and is a son of John and Ann (Stinson) Mills, both natives of Ireland, the former of whom, who was a farmer by occupation, died in 1876 ; the latter is still living. They had a family of ten children, nine of whom survive, five residing in this county. J. S. Mills, whose biography we write, worked on a farm till he was twenty years of age, and then attended the Collegiate Institute, Cobourg, Ontario, for two years, and, for the six months following, the Collegiate Institute, Brantford, which prepared him for the Victoria College, Cobourg, where he studied for four years and graduated in divinity, also taking three years in arts. Mr. Mills learned the drug business one year with C. S. Mason, Brantford, and four months at Toronto, and obtained his diploma from the Ontario College of Pharmacy. On this he returned to Brantford, and, along with L. E. Blackader, bought out Frederick Brandon, and his partnership with Mr. Blackader lasted for two years and eight months. At this stage, Mr. Mills bought out the drug business of A. B. Bennett, the oldest in Brantford, and has since met with most encouraging success. He was married January 18, 1882, to Adele C. Hoffman, a native of Berlin, County of Waterloo, Ontario, and a daughter of J. S. Hoffman, druggist, Berlin. One son has been born to this union-Reginald Wilmer. Mr. and Mrs. Mills are members of Brant Avenue Methodist Church, and he is classleader and Bible class teacher in the same church. He is also a member of the Quarterly Board, and in politics a Reformer
