- Francis W. Cosens, 8th child of Charles and Ann Cosens, was born in Surrey, England, and came to Canada with his father's family at age 11, settling in Waterloo. At age 18, he joined the Baptist Church, but changed to the Methodist Church c. 3 years later. He married Mary Kilbourn, and moved with her c. 6 years ago from Blenheim to St. George.
