  • Notes 
    • Joseph Kinzinger, "was born at Bow, near Bromley, Middlesex, England, December 2nd, 1817. On March 17th, 1842, he left London and set sail for America and landed at New York May 2nd. In August of the same year he came to Canada and settled at Hawksville, Ontario, where he soon opened a shop to continue his trade which he had learned in London, England, namely that of shoemaking. Here he very soon established a well-paying business in the making and repairing of footwear. On August 15th, 1849, he was married to Janet Edmison, a native of Kelso, Scotland. She died in Woolwich Township, October 19th 1860, aged 39 years. On February 17th, 1862, he was married again to Susannah Brand, widow of the late John Wideman. She was born in Berlin, Ontario, March 1st, 1825. After his second marriage he resided in St. Jacobs where he was working at his trade until the death summons called him away, October 19th, 1889. The entire time afforded to him to acquire learning in school was all embraced in the short period from his eighth to his eleventh year, when he attended the London Parochial Schools. At the age when our boys are attending the high schools of the country he was serving his five years apprenticeship at shoemaking in a dreary, lonely shop lighted up with gas light. After having served his apprenticeship he engaged himself for 6 1/2 d. per day, thinking he was getting good wages. He was a man that by his careful living had acquired an enviable reputation amongst his neighbors for good practical common sense and fearless candor in expressing his convictions. These traits, united with a cheerful disposition and genial social qualities, caused him to be held in high esteem by all his neighbors. With him has gone another of the noble citizens of St. Jacobs and he is no longer seen amid his familiar surroundings. His last days as well as his last moments on earth were calm and peaceful for his well-grounded faith in the blessed Redeemer did not forsake him. Shortly before his death he was praising the Lord, and earnestly beseeching those who stood around the death-bed to make sure their calling. His remains rest in the St. Jacobs cemetery with the dust of those gone before. To him was born a family of nine children, six with his first wife and three with his second wife"
