- "Dear Dr. Carroll
Having noticed in the Guardian your request to forward to you any remembrances of the late venerable Father Corson, I send the following: I first saw and heard Mr. Corson in the Township of Waterloo, about a mile and a half above Preston; the ' preaching place' was at a primitive log-house, the residence of the late Samuel Cornell, to which place my parents used to repair weekly for preaching and class-meeting, taking me with them this was about the year 1824 or 1825. Memory now paints Mr. Corson as a light, nimble, tough little man, of about 125 or 130 lbs. avordupoise, with light hair and sharp, sparkeyes. His manner of preaching was quick, bordering on the abrupt; his subjects were generally solemn; his appeals sharp; his applications appropriate; and his proofs always cogent and logical; and, I ought to add, his method generally orderly and systematic. About the time I speak of, I witnessed what, to my young mind, appeared to be a hard test of his muscular ability. At the preaching, a tall, muscular, large-boned Dutchman, lately converted, applied for baptism by immersion at the hands of our little hero. A procession was formed, headed by our preacher, arm in arm with the neophyte, followed by a singing band of brothers and sisters, who sang with power and pathos the old expressive stanza,
'Then let our songs abound,
And every tear be dry,
We're inarching through Emmanuel's ground,
To fairer worlds on high, &c.'
"Father Corson" or, The old style Canadian itinerant
Cornell, Samuel of St George; was born in New York state January 8 1784, came to Canada in 1801 and settled in Waterloo where he obtained 600 acres near the present town of Preston. He returned to the U.S. in 1812 and married Miss Hannah Clemons of Madison County, Connecticut in 1813. In 1819 he returned to Canada. His wife died in 1836 and 2 years later married a widow named Smith of Palermo. She died 24 hours later, after that he resided amongst his children. About 6 years ago he fell from his horse at Arkona and broke his leg. He died Friday November 1 1872 at the home of his daughter Mrs J Wait and was buried in the private cemetery on his old farm at Preston.
