  • Notes 
    • The death of Mrs. Lucinda Allison (mother of the editor of the Maple Leaf) at Arthur last week at the age of 78 years, removes one of Waterloo township's early pioneers. She was a daughter of John Shupe, who lived for sixty years on the old homestead just up the grand river from Freeport and who died in 1860. Her grandfather, Adam Shupe, came from Pennsylvania with the first settlers, in about 1800, and his was the first burial in Berlin. Through her father's numerous brothers she was connected with many of the old families who came from Pennsylvania and whose descendants are still numerous and prosperous in Waterloo, many of them being personally acquainted with her. In 1841 she was, married to Wheeler Green (brother of Jonah Green, who still lives, hale and hearty, 85 years old, just north of Preston). Twenty years after her husband's death she was again married to A. B. Allison who died at Gorrie last spring. Her other children are Wm. Green, at Harvey, Ill.; Isaiah Green, at Arthur, and Mrs. George Green, at Wingham.
