  • Notes 
    • James Lochhead was employed at the Galt Edged Tool Works, then known as Date and Distin, since H. H. Date and W. L. Distin were the proprietors. Grandma recalls taking messages to him at his work, being carefully handed from one worker to another past the burning forge till she safely reached her destination. She remembers proudly that tools which he made in Galt were shown in a red-lined box and won first prize at the Exposition in Paris, France.
