  • Notes 
    • JAMES Phin, of Waterloo Township, resides upon a very fine farm a short distance north of Hespeler, a view of which appears among our illustrations on another page. He is the eldest son of James Phin, a native of Roxburghshire, Scotland, who spent the greater portion of his youth in the County Monaghan, Ireland, in charge of a large estate, removing to Canada in 1833. The subject of our sketch is President of the Reform Association of the township, has been a Justice of the Peace for a number of years, as has his father also, both of whom have been considered as among the thoroughly representative agriculturists of the township.
