    • MY MATERNAL GRANDPARENTS:

      William Maude, my great grandfather, was born in 1820 in Ireland and died in 1908 and is buried in Everton. He was one of 10 children immigrating with their parents. One brother died during the crossing and was buried at sea. Anne McKendrie, Gram's mom was born in 1826 in Ireland and died March the 30th, 1910. She also is buried in Everton cemetery. She was travelling with her family on the same boat as the Maude's. She fell in love with William and he with her, and they decided to get married. My Grandmother, Annie McKendrie Maude, was born on March 23rd, 1871, a first generation Canadian. Annie was a fraternal twin of William or Willie, who died when he was kicked in the head by a horse at the age of six. They were from a family of ten originally, four girls and six boys, including another set of twins and lived on a farm in Eramosa Township. The siblings were as follows; Joseph 1856, Sophie 1858, John or Jack as he was called in 1860, Mary Jane 1863, twins Robert and Alexander in 1867, Annie and William in 1871 and Henry in 1873.

      My Grandfather, Samuel Fredrick, was the second youngest child and the fourth boy in family of twelve. He was born December 17th, 1878, to Elizabeth Farrell and John Holshauer, whose family had immigrated in the early 1800's. The English translation of Holtzhauer is woodcutter. The siblings were as follows; Henry born in 1859 or 1860, Christina 1861, Eli 1863, John 1865, Moses 1866, Mary 1869, Charles 1871, Elizabeth 1872, Agnes 1876, Sophia 1877, Samuel 1878 and William 1880.

      My Grandmother was raised on a farm in Eramosa Township near Rockwood and my great grandfather, William, donated land from the farm for a school house, which was called "The Little Red School House, #8". Their children did not have as long a journey to get to school as some of their fellow students. Grandma apprenticed as a tailor, sitting crosslegged in the window of a tailor shop in nearby Rockwood hand sewing. On an early Singer treadle machine, she was able to sew the toughest material of my grandfather's work clothes, as well as the delicate dress material for my mother, Lillian, their only child. I learned to sew on that machine and my older daughter Nancy still has it and it is still in working order. Her sister Mary Jane was born with the membranes over her face and that was called being born with a veil and hood and she was thought to be a "charmer". She told fortunes by tea leaves and tarot cards and saw visions, some of which terrified her. She was actually terrified of dying, unlike my grandmother, who accepted dying and was not afraid when it came. Sam courted Annie through the warm summer months, riding 12 miles on his bicycle out to the farm. As the weather started to grow Colder, my grandfather to be, Sam. drew the changing weather to Anne's attention and said they better get married so he would not have to make the journey in the snow.

      They were married on October 17th, 1900, Annie was 29 and Sam was 21. Sam was a craftsman in a foundry and my younger daughter, Carolyn, has the wrought iron footstool which he made there many years ago. My grandfather developed a lung disease from his foundry work, but of course there was no compensation at that time. When he was unable to work any more at the foundry and had no income, he worked for the town doing outside work. In his 60's he became a late onset diabetic and had to use Insulin from then on. His diabetes was the indirect cause of his death on October 12th, 1943 at the age of 65, when I was 15. During the previous winter he had developed ulcers on his buttocks, while in his wet clothes he had sat on the salt and sand mixture that was being used on the icy roads, that led to problems with his kidneys and the resulting complications killed him. At the last he was hemorrhaging into his lungs. I never saw him once he went into the hospital. I do not remember his funeral, although I am sure that I went to it. My grandmother was eight years older than my grandfather and must of felt some kind of shame, as she would not tell anyone her age. Of course polite people would never have asked and she always told us she was as old as her tongue and a little older than her teeth. In order to help pay the bills after grandpa died my grandmother started to babysit. Have you ever had a 75 year old babysitter?
