HILLSBOROUGH, LITTLE RIVER, ORANGE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA:
FAMILY HISTORY: In June 1965 Hugh Conway Browning held a long conversation with Mr. George Walker, born in 1888, son of Thomas Walker, grandson of Phillip Walker, great grandson of Robert Walker, and great-great grandson of William Walker. Mr. George Walker related that as a youngster his grandfather had told him a great number of items relating to his family history. Among them being that William Walker Sr, the first of his family in this area, came to Hillsborough, Little River, Orange County, North Carolina around 1767, from Canada. William returned to Canada taking with him all members of his family except his son, Robert, who on April 18, 1791, married Eleanor Latta, a daughter of John Latta, Sr. The residence of Mr. George Walker is located in the Schley-Caldwell area of Orange County, north of the present day road which runs by New Sharon Church and continues to the intersection of this road and the Guess Road at Hopkins Cross Roads. This was the home place of his great grand father, Robert Walker. The house was built for Robert by a man named Hanks about the time that Phillip Walker, (George Walker's grandfather) was four years of age, which indicates that the house was built about 1814. According to a note written by Miss Myrtle Walker, sister of George Thomas Walker, Robert (poss. meant William Walker b.1743?) Walker came from England to Canada, then from Canada to North Carolina on two horses.
Land Transaction Records:
1. In a deed dated 15 Nov 1784, Barney Grimes and Mary his wife, conveyed to William Walker 100 acres of land located on the south branch of Little River, it being part of a 360 acre tract of land granted to Thomas Perkins by John, Earl of Granville, 6 Dec 1761.
2. In a deed dated 3 Jul 1787, Thomas Riggs conveyed to William Walker 100 acres of land located on the waters of Little River.
3. In a deed dated 7 Apr 1788, Alexander Hunter and Susannah his wife, conveyed to William Walker 200 acres located on the south side of the North Fork of Little River.
4. In a deed dated 30 Dec 1789, James Riggs conveyed to William Walker 100 acres of land located on the waters of Little River.
5. In a deed dated 14 Dec 1791, John Mitchell and Elizabeth his wife, conveyed to William Walker 213 acres of land located on the waters of Eno River.
6. In a deed dated 30 Aug 1793, William Walker conveyed this tract of land to Levi Whitehead (Whitted?).
7. In a deed dated 28 Nov 1793, William Walker conveyed this tract of land to William Dunnegan.
8. In a deed dated 17 Feb 1794, William Walker conveyed this tract of land to William Roark.
9. In a deed dated 22 Apr 1794, William Walker conveyed this tract of land to Robert Walker.
10. In a deed dated 22 Apr 1794, William Walker conveyed this tract of land to Robert Walker.
The aforementioned land transactions indicates that the known land purchases in Orange County, North Carolina were in November 1784 by William Walker Sr. Also, that he purchased other tracts of land in the years that followed. The probability is that William Sr came into Orange County around 1767, his eldest son Robert, was born in 1767 in North Carolina, and that William disposed of his real estate holdings not later the April 1794. It is also noted that the two April 1794 land transactions were to his eldest son Robert. According to a note written by Miss Myrtle Walker, sister of George Thomas Walker, Robert (poss. meant William Sr. ?) Walker came from England to Canada, then from Canada to North Carolina on two horses.This was about the time William left Orange County, North Carolina to Canada.
GRIMSBY, CLINTON AND NORFOLK COUNTIES, ONTARIO, CANADA:
FAMILY HISTORY: William served in the British army under Lord Cornwallis. The Ontario land granted, No. 139, to William Walker was located in Lincoln County, Grimsby Township on Con VII Lots 11, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17. Later the map of Clinton township, shows William Walker had also owned land on Con B, F and I Lots 19 and 20 on the shore of Lake Ontario. This land was at the end of Thirty Road, which at that time was known as "The Harbour", a port of call for lakeboats for many years. He named his home "Walker Hall", which still stands on the shore of Lake Ontario on the original Crown lands granted to him in 1794 where he lived until his death in 1819. His grandson, John S. Walker, built onto the Hall in 1848. The Hall still exists as a Teashop and is no longer owned by the Walker family. William Walker is credited by some with having been Clinton township's first settler. He was active in the social and business life of both Clinton and Grimsby townships. In 1804, William was recorded as one of five "Freeholders" to choose two representatives of the district to run for members of the Assembly of Upper Canada and his name was on the voters list of 1812, 1816, and on all subscription lists for the building of the first church in Grimsby township.
Around 1793, William Walker, with his wife Sarah, nine of their children, David and Elizabeth Palmer's family, and the widow Margaret McCool's with her family came to Ontario, Canada.
William's petition for land grants:
Dated 10 July 1794 (W 1/9) - William states that he has "Just arrived with his Family", (eleven in number, four of which are men able to bear Arms), from North Carolina, has suffered everything but Death by the American Revolution, had property in Land, 800 acres all of which was taken from him and Sold by the Rebels ( that were then Stiled); OC - Recommended. Grant No. 139.
Further "He begs leave to inform your Excellency that he faithfully adhered to the British Government and can procure Witnesses of his Loyalty. He now prays for an allotment of Land adequate to his Family and does hope you will please to consider his long travel near 1000 miles and give him a grant that he may immediately improve, for his further subsistence or such other relief as that your Wisdom may seem meet and your Petitioner will ever pray"; OC - Ordered that the petitioner and his family have a grant of 1200 acres.
On 13 May 1796 (W 2/46) late of North Carolina; came 2 years ago; has wife and 10 children; received 1200 acres; was in the army of Lord Cornwallis; lost all his property, both real and personal; lost 800 acres of Land; has expended upwards of L700 to raise sufficient supplies for his family; requested additional lands at the Long Point Settlement; OC - If the petitioner's children are of age they will receive lands in their own right.
Rec 8 Nov 1799 (W Misc 1796 - 1815/34) - the following have been on their lots at Townsend about 3 years and have from 10 acres upwards cleared: Ralph Walker; Isaac Walker; William Walker Jr; John Walker; Sarah Walker m., Joseph McCool; Margaret Walker m., William McCool; Thomas Walker; Ann Walker m., John Henry; Philip Walker.
**Between the years 1861 through 1890, several of the children of those named in the above record moved their families to Kent, Montcalm, Ionia, and Saginaw Counties, Michigan.
CEMETERY: St. Andrew's Presbyterian Churchyard, Grimsby Twp., Lincoln Co., Ontario. The inscriptions and dates read: "Erected to the memory of William Walker who departed this life October 22 1819, in the 76th year of his age." "Here lies the body of Sarah Walker, b.1746, wife of William Walker who departed this life the 6th day of April 1806, in the 60th year of her age." "Sacred to the memory of Elizabeth Walker, second wife of William Walker. Born 1762, she departed this life on June 25, 1817 in the 55th year of her age."
NOTE: The following Will was transcribed from a photocopy of the original hand-written Will of William Walker Sr. The photocopy was somewhat difficult to transcribe and transcription errors were inevitable due to some guesswork in reading it.

HISTORY: Lost Creek Township "History of Parke and Vigo Counties-- 1880" by H.W.Beckwith. -- "The first settlers arrived in this township about 1820, settling near the west center of town, among the first being John Colton, Daniel and John Jenks, Antony Connor, and William Phillips, while further south were Moore and George Hussey. In 1825 Zadoc Reeves located in the Jenks settlement, having come from Carlisle, where he had settled in 1819, to build a distillery for Jenks, he being a carpenter and millwright. Another old settler, and probably the first one, was Matthew Gray, who devoted his time entirely to hunting, following that as his sole means of livelihood. His wife used to wear shoes made of untanned hog skin, and his own garments were nearly all trophies of his success in the chase. Shortly after the arrival of Reeves came Sylvester Ripley, Isaac Kruzan, Thomas Patterson, James Watson, Joseph Hoskins, Ralph Wilson, the Montgomerys, Moody Chamberlain and Hulse, and a little later, 1835, arrived the Dickerson family and Peter Collins, who settled toward the east side of the township. These were shortly followed by Silas Pierce, John Harper, Isaac Hall and Alfred B Pegg. The last named was the builder and owner of the Round House, or, rather, Octagon House, from which the trading point known as Round House Corners takes its name."

NOTE: We would like to extend our thanks to W. Kemp Walker in North Carolina for his family memories. He writes: "I see you found some records on John Carden. He did marry the daughter of William R. Walker Sr. but there is a confusing twist with him. I had for some time been confused about her name, was it Sarah or Sallie. Her name is Sarah but she was often referred to as Sallie. You may already know, I’m not sure, but the Mary listed in the 1900 census, as John’s wife is his second wife. Sarah died in 1892. It confused me for a long time because my father spoke of an Uncle John and Aunt Miss Carden. I knew this couldn’t be his aunt because she died of course long before he was born. But John Carden was still living on the Walker farm with his second wife when my father was born and lived there until he died in 1938. Mary his second wife died in 1940."

Mrs. Walker was one of a retiring nature giving most of her time to her home and family and was a devoted mother. The hospitality of Mrs. Walker's home was extended to all in the most hearty manner which betokened her kindly character. In her early life she took Christ as her Saviour and became a member of the United church of Rockford (Methodist) and later after her marriage of Villa Nova Methodist church. Mrs. Walker was born near Bowmanville in Darlington township and she was the eldest child of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Porter and at an early age moved with her parents to Townsend where she spent almost her entire life. A family of three children, Mrs. Wanley Goble, of Villa Nova, Mrs. N. R. Fiebig, of Stratford and Mr. A. A. Walker of Vittoria, are left to mourn their loss, also three sisters, Mrs. J. Kortum, Mrs. J. Dunlop and Mrs. H. McCarter, and three brothers Mr. J. Porter, Mr. N. Porter and Mr. E. Porter. The funeral was held from the home of her daughter Mrs. Wanley Goble, Villa Nova, on May 7th at 2.30 p. m., the service being conducted by Rev. S. H. Lamb, and was largely attended by relatives and friends. The pallbearers were, Chas. Fiebig, her son Mr. A. A. Walker, two grandsons Mr. A. J. Goble and Mr. Kenneth Fiebig, and two sons-in-law Mr. Wanley Goble and Mr. N. R. Fiebig. The floral tributes were numerous and beautiful. Pillow: the family. Wreaths: Code Cloak Co., of Toledo.

NOTE: "Historical Stetch of Villa Nova" Handwritten: 1954 by (author unknown) -- In the spring of 1850, or 104 years ago, the Regular Baptist Church was organized with twenty seven charter members. At the first covenant meeting thirteen days later when twenty two memebers were present Elder Jacob Goble was chosen as the first pastor or chairman of the newly organized church. There were several saw mills on the banks of the creek, one owned by Squire William Walker in front of Austin Smith's house. He (William Walker) lived where (Jno ?) Hockens (in 1954) lives, and was a magistrate and was the man who gave the property for the old cemetery. He (William Walker) was the first school teacher that Waterford had. The first store was owned and managed by John McLaren Sr. and stood on the corner across from the blacksmith shop which was owned and run by Mr. (Larson?). (----?) a store was built on the site where our present one stands and was owned by James Erskine. I wonder how many know that Villa Nova once had a Rifle Company (the rest unreadable). After the Finian Raid in 1866, Mr. John McLaren Sr. (the rest is unreadable).

The late John McLarens came from hear Edinburgh, Scotland, to Canada on a sailing vessel, taking six weeks to make the journey. His wife was of Irish descent.
A beautiful painting of a scene near the home of the late John McLaren, near Edinburgh, was painted and presented to Mr. and Mrs. McLaren, by their granddaughter, Miss Loreen McLaren of London. Mr. McLaren resides in the home of his birth. Mrs. McLaren is the youngest daughter of the late John Walker, who with his brother, William Walker, came to this village when it was a forest, and made a home, which later became the home of his only son, Lewis. Fine daughters were reared in this home, to the number of four. John McLaren and Sylvia Walker went to school at Villa Nova, and as years rolled on, on a beautiful autumn day, they with Augusta Walker, George Lemon, Ursula Walker and Lewis Walker, wended their way to the Baptist parsonage at Boston, where Elder Reddick made them one, and they have truly been real companions. They have been blessed with fine sons and daughters, seven of whom were present on their 60th anniversary: William of Chicago, of the Pullman works; Mrs. Minnie Erwin of Villa Nova; Mrs. H. Cunningham of Delhi; Mrs. Wm. Heath of Bloomsburg; Mrs. Wm. Kerr of Detroit, and Mr. Archie McLaren of London; and Gordon, at home. Three sons, Herbert, Robert and Ernest, are in Alberta.

It is a joy and a pleasure to meet and converse with this happy couple who are alive to all the interests of the present day.

MARRIAGE NOTICE: Heath - McLaren -- At Villa Nova Methodist church, on Wednesday, Sept. 22nd, 1909, by Rev. E. Sheppard, of Waterford, Miss Bertha McLaren, of Villa Nova, and Mr. Will Heath, of Bloomsburg.
WEDDING: On Wednesday of last week at twelve o'clock noon in the Methodist Church, the marriage of Miss Bertha McLaren, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John McLaren of this place, and Mr. William Heath, of Bloomsburg, was solemnized by Rev. E. Sheppard, in the presence of a large number of guests. A most unique and beautiful bower consisting of foliage and flowers had been arranged at the church front, in which the minister waited, while the bride and groom unushered and unattended, according to the latest mode and to the strains of Lohengrin's wedding march, played by Miss Edna Gayler, marched slowly down the aisle from the entry. The ceremony was rapidly performed accordingly to the old established formula, and despite the happy augury for the future welfare of the estimable young couple, there was a tinge of regret felt by all at losing from our immediate circle such a useful and highly accomplished young lady as Miss McLaren, who was the organist for both Methodist and Baptist churches as well as the orchestra. Congratulations were extended after the guests had repaired to the bride's home, where a most sumptuous banquet was spread, and to which ample justice was done. The bride was attired in a white silk princess gown with bridal veil and orange blossoms, carrying a beautiful shower bouquet of bridal roses and maiden-hair ferns. Her going away gown was a green broadcloth traveling suit with a large green velvet hat trimmed with foliage. The presents were numerous and costly. Among those present from a distance were: Mr. and Mrs. George Heath, parents of the groom, Miss Emma Hart, of Bloomsburg; Mrs. Heath and Mr. Ed. Heath, of Waterford; Mr. and Mrs. McNally, the Misses McNally, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Shaw, Miss Ethel Shaw, Mrs. (Dr.) Stanton, of Simcoe; Mr. and Mrs. John Terry and Mrs. Defield, of Waterford; Mr. Lindsay of Waterford; Mr. and Mrs. Herb. Cunningham, Hagersville.
BIOGRAPHY: The Waterford Star, June 29 1916. -- The Man From Norfolk -- Little did Captain W. L. Heath think when he was a mere lad attending the Waterford High School, that in a few years he would lead a company of strapping fine fellows past the old school and halt at the town hall through lines of waving flags and cheering citizens, as he did yesterday. He is a spruce little officer. He has been in the military business since he was 16 years old and a Captain of the 39th since 1910, according to the lists. It was always his ambition to be a real soldier and to lead real men, and he has them. If the repeated protestations yesterday that the men were a well behaved lot, have left a suggestion at Waterford that there is something to be covered up, let such impressions be obliterated. Captain Heath has left a good fruit farm in a good township, and is leaving behind a wife and two small children, this last, doubtless his only regret, and is eager to do his part. He is proud of what Waterford has done and says of Townsend that it is just a question as to whether the land should be left untilled or kept producing--which is the greatest need, men for the ranks or for the farms which he considers are not over manned. Captain Heath has good company and "D" Company has a levelheaded efficient officer. --Simcoe Canadian.
ADDENDUM: Captain Slater is captain of "D" Co. so Captain Heath moves up a notch and is now Major Heath.
OBITUARY: William Lindsay Heath, one of Simcoe's best-known citizens, died suddenly Monday night in Norfolk General Hospital at the age of 73. Mr. Heath, who resided at 378 Norfolk St. N., was born at Bloomsburg, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. George A. Heath. He attended Waterford public and high schools and farmed in Townsend until 1944 when he moved to Simcoe. Here he was in the insurance and real estate business, in the firm of Heath and Kelsall, retiring about five years ago. Deceased had an outstanding military background, serving in the first World War with the 133rd (Norfolk's Own) Battalion as major. Later he became officer commanding the Norfolk Regiment of Canada with the rank of lieutenant-colonel. He was a life member of the Simcoe Kinsman club, a member of the Phoenix Club and Officers' Mess of the 69th Field Battery and an adherent of St. Paul's Presbyterian Church. Besides his wife, the former Bertha MacLaren, whom he married at Villa Nova 53 years ago, he is survived by two daughters, Mrs. William O. Cutting (Marjorie) and Mrs. D. C. Porter (Tallulah), both of Simcoe; four grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. A son, George, was killed overseas in 1943 while serving with the Canadian Army. Resting at the Marvyn M. Veale Funeral Home for service on Thursday at 2 p.m. with Rev. D. C. MacDonald officiating and interment in Greenwood Cemetery, Waterford.

OBITUARY: Mr. Walker Messecar died at his home on Wednesday afternoon of last week. He was 83 years of age and among the oldest residents of the district and a descendent of the United Empire Loyalists, Abram and John Messecar, who came to Townsend in 1871, from Northern New Jersey. Abram settled on the farm just north of Waterford, and John at Rockford where he conducted a flower mill. Deceased was the oldest of the family of eight, all of whom have passed away. Mr. Messecar married Mary Chart in 1853 and they started farming on the old homestead north of Waterford. To them were born three children, Ernest Messecar of Townsend, Mrs. J. A. Sutherland of London, and Dr. F. H. Messecar of New York. For over 25 years he was assessor and collector for the Township of Townsend and in 1884 he quit farming and went into the insurance business, having written his last policy three days before his death. He was a life-long Liberal and always took a great deal of interest in the political campaigns, especially those of fifty years ago, when Hon. John Charlton represented North Norfolk in the Federal House. He was a member of the Waterford Public School Board for a number of years and Worshipful Master of Wilson Lodge, No. 113, A. F. & A.

He had borne adversity bravely and enjoyed prosperity quietly. He had filled the various relations of life as son, husband, father, brother, friend and filled them all well. Who can do more? The funeral was held from his late residence on Sunday afternoon, the service being conducted by his pastor Rev. J.D. MacLackin. Mr. T.C. Savage sang "In the Beautiful Land", unaccompanied. Beautiful flowers testified to the esteem in which the deceased was held. The service at the grave was conducted by about forty of his brothers of Wilson Lodge, No. 113, A. F. & A. M., and was most impressive. "The silver cord is loosed, the golden bowl is broken, the dust has returned to the earth as it was; the spirit has returned to God who gave it. The brother who remembered the Creator in the days of his youth, ere the evils days came, or the years drew nigh when he should say "I have no pleasure in them," has finished his course and reached the heavenly goal in the race of life."

NOTE: "Historical Stetch of Villa Nova" Handwritten: 1954 by (author unknown) -- In the spring of 1850, or 104 years ago, the Regular Baptist Church was organized with twenty seven charter members. At the first covenant meeting thirteen days later when twenty two memebers were present Elder Jacob Goble was chosen as the first pastor or chairman of the newly organized church. There were several saw mills on the banks of the creek, one owned by Squire William Walker in front of Austin Smith's house. He (William Walker) lived where (Jno ?) Hockens (in 1954) lives, and was a magistrate and was the man who gave the property for the old cemetery. He (William Walker) was the first school teacher that Waterford had. The first store was owned and managed by John McLaren Sr. and stood on the corner across from the blacksmith shop which was owned and run by Mr. (Larson?). (----?) a store was built on the site where our present one stands and was owned by James Erskine. I wonder how many know that Villa Nova once had a Rifle Company (the rest unreadable). After the Finian Raid in 1866, Mr. John McLaren Sr. (the rest is unreadable).

FAMILY LETTERS: According to family records, provided by Audrey Dykstra and Laurice Welch, in a letter dated Jan. 31, 1976, Ralph Walker wrote, "Uncle Frank told me that his father was killed in an accident. He was with a machine where the chain broke and hit him in the stomach and caused his death. I think he said his mother had died previous or soon after. He said Uncle Ed and Will were small boys and had no where to go so he took them with him back to the lumber camp where he worked and that is where they grew up. The amazing thing is that they never formed any bad habits, did not drink, never went to jail and grew up to be first class citizens. But they both learned how to fight, for there a man had to fight for his life. They both became semi-professionals prize fighters. I may have told of Uncle Will that came to our place for a couple days. He was about twenty five. He went with my father to a neighbor's to thresh. The owner of the machine "claimed" to be a prize fighter, a giant of a man and he had begun to pick on Uncle Will. He came for Uncle Will like a mad bull, when he got near Uncle Will jumped to one side and landed a hard right to the ear, this happened about seven times, the last he couldn't get up. He said, "I don't know who you are but you are a better man then I". I met a man that worked there the summer and he said the "old bully" was a different man from then on. Uncle Will showed no signs of being angry, it was a common thing for him. I feel sure Ed and Will were the only brothers, for Uncle Frank always spoke of them as his brothers."
FAMILY LETTERS: According to family records, provided by Audrey Dykstra and Laurice Welch, in a letter dated Nov. 14, 1976, Ralph Dodds wrote, "You wondered if Grandfather (Ralph) Walker owned his farm or was he a renter? I am real sure he owned the farm altho I have no real proof of this. Uncle Frank was the eldest son and after the parents died he married Rebecca King, they lived across the road and they lived there for at least fifteen years and they traded the farm for one in Odessa Twp. right near where we live. So it could not have been rented."
FAMILY LETTERS: According to family lore, provided by Audrey Dykstra and Laurice Welch, in a letter dated Apr. 13, 1977, Ralph Dodds wrote, "You thought it was strange Audrey, that one of the girls didn't take Ed and Will. My mother said that when a girl was ten or twelve they went out to work for some farmer's wife for a year or two and then they went to a hotel to work, Aunt Agnes was the youngest girl and someone took her for a year or two, The other girls were all in hotels and could not take them, the two boys, there. The lumber camps were always glad to get boys to carry water and wood, and help the cook for their board, so that seemed the only way out. I bet they were good little workers for they loved to work."
FAMILY LETTERS: According to family records, provided by Audrey Dykstra and Laurice Welch, in a letter dated Aug. 13, 1976, Ralph Dodds wrote, "My mother did not tell me much about her parents. she said her father was killed in an accident and her mother died soon after and that they were both buried in Boston Cemetery, that is west of Boston Grange Hall. When I was a boy our neighbor, John Seybold said he knew Ralph Walker. He said he lived two miles southeast of Lowell. He said he was a big strong man and well liked by everyone. He said he was known far and near as 'Uncle Rafe'."

Ed always said he was around eight years old when he went out to work. Ed always had lots of stories to tell about it. Audrey remembers the young people in the family saying, "Uncle Ed, tell about the time you did so and so," and he would proceed to do so with great relish.

I went there in the fall and helped husk corn in the day and go coon hunting at night. One night the dog had a coon up a tall tree, and Uncle shot what he thought was the coon, and it was Ruby's old pet cat "Tim". Uncle Ed felt terrible about that and made me promise not to tell Ruby about it. She looked for days for her Tim cat."

NEWS ARTICLE: Broken Leg- The many friends of Mr. Robert McCool will regret to learn of the misfortune which befell him on Saturday morning last. While out in the yard on the west side of his house, he unfortunately slipped and fell, breaking his left leg between the knee and hip, and also severely bruising his hip. Robert was taken into the house by Thomas McCool and James Leach, who fortunately happened to be present at the time, and medical assistance summoned. The fracture was reduced on Sunday and the unfortunate man is as comfortable as it is possible to make him. It will no doubt be a long time before he will be able to get around again, as his age, between 75 and 80, is against him making a very speedy recovery. To make matters still worse Mr. McCool has been totally blind for several months.
NEWS ARTICLE: Medical: Mr. Robert McCool is gradually sinking, his recovery is impossible.
OBITUARY: Owing to the very inclement state of the weather, the funeral of the late Mr. Robert McCool on Sunday morning was not as largely attended as it would otherwise have been. Since the injury he sustained some few weeks ago, he has been gradually sinking until on Friday last he passed quietly away. A union memorial service was held in the Baptist Church in which the resident minister took part. The sermon by the Rev. Mr. Moore was a masterly to infidelity and was listened to with close attention.
OBITUARY: Cedelia Cliff, widow of Robert McCool of Waterford died 10 May 1900 at her brothers home at 137 Market St., Hamilton.

BIOGRAPHY: If the art of quilt making is dying in Canada, the women of Grassie can smugly boast they had no part of it. In celebrating their golden Jubilee the Grassie Ladies Aid are in the process of making their 400th quilt since they organized 50 years ago. Charter member, Mrs. Lottie Walker, recalled the events of those first meetings saying "We were just an agreeable bunch of women who didn't smoke, drink or play cards. Being young and out here on our own we would gather up whatever sewing we had make our way to a neighbour's home and talk over the latest happenings. As you can imagine, it didn't take long for nothing used to happen around here, but we enjoyed it just the same. The late Rev. Wilson of Grassie Presbyterian Church took an interest in our work and suggested that we become organized. Through him we became known as the Ladies Aid and the first actual meeting was held at the home of Mrs. Walter Hopkins on the first Wednesday in March 1914. Twelve women were present on that day and we elected the late Mrs. David Jacobs as president, and Mrs. Walter McClary, now of London Ont., as our secretary." Today the 'quilting bees' are just as active, Mrs. Walker who held office as president for ten years now works hard on the work committee. People from around Grassie know of the excellent quilts these women make and often give them work to do, but along with this they are continuously making more quilts for the Harbour Mission in Hamilton, also missions up north and for Miss Viola Walker who is on a mission in the Belgian Congo at the present time. The group is interdenominational although affiliated with the Grassie Gospel Church. A person new to Grassie will be welcomed as a neighbour by the Ladies Aid and invited to become a member, on arrival they will find that the ages of these industrious ladies range from 27 to 72, they will also see that two new Canadians are being taught the craft of quilt making. A welcome hand is extended by all members and this year's anniversary president, Mrs. William Hilberg to those who would like to join. Congratulations was said many times last Wednesday as the group celebrated the historic date of their organizing, and Mrs. Larry Duck, one of the newer members, proved to be an excellent hostess.
SOCIAL: Mrs. Lottie Walker and Miss. Audrey and Betty Lou accompanied Mr. and Mrs. Fred Duck and Larry on a trip up north where they visited friends. (August 1950)
BIRTHDAYS: Life in the small hamlet of Grassie has been a most rewarding Adventure for Mesdames Lydia Elizaberth (Lizzie) Duck, Charlotte (Lottie) Walker and Minnie Irene Duck. A grand total of 250 years has been written in The family album of memories for these three ladies, who have lived in this small community for most of their lives. Family ties and kind neighborhood friends have contributed so much to their reserved ways of country life. Their names can be found on the same family tree, due primarily to marriages associated with their husbands. Mrs. Lizzie Duck, who was 90 years old this summer, has lived in Grassie since 1912 and still likes to talk about the years gone by. She has three grandchildren and three great grandchildren. "My husband and I had a wonderful and successful farming life, considering all the problems of this way of life," she commented. "I like meeting people and I like my friends to come and see me at my home. These lifelong friends mean a lot to me. "I also like visiting. About 35 ladies from the Fulton Church brought me a birthday cake a short time ago. Now I have three cakes after this big party." A Saturday evening buffet supper was held recently at Rock Chapel Church hall in honor of the three Grassie ladies. The supper was supervised by Mesdames Frances Sherritt, Jean Black, Ethel Vickers and Edith Vickers. "I was born in Grassie and lived there all of my life," remarked Mrs. Minnie Duck. "Life has been very good to me for these 80 years, as a mother of two girls and now a grandmother for 11 grandchildren. My grandchildren keep me feeling young again. "I was a public school teacher for 25 years, some before my marriage and the rest after my marriage. I like being part of a big family tree of relatives." The three ladies are related to one another by marriages and the details of such can be found on the Duck family tree of relations. Mrs. Lottie Walker, who has lived in Grassie since 1912 and who now is 80 years old, was born in Bracebridge. She later moved to Calgary, Alberta, then to her present home. This home is regarded as being 100 years old. "I like my grandchildren and I think I have had a very pleasant life," she commented. "I enjoy our family life and also like being a good member of the Grassie Gospel Church." "There have been many changes in things at Grassie partly due to the different people that have moved into the community. There also have been many changes in the church since I first started going to it many years ago." Mrs. Walker still likes to reminisce about the days gone by as a girl in Bracebridge. Music for this family party at Rock Chapel was contributed by Larry Duck at the piano and Stan Black and his violin. Charlotte Golwitzer, young daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Golwitzer, blew out the candles on her birthday cake before The cake-cutting ceremony involving the three honoured guests. (August 1972)

[Francis Duck's Notes] The day that Mr. Frederick Walker was to be buried was one of the worst days of the winter. There had been heavy snow and strong winds with the result that many of the rural roads were closed. Mr. Walker had been resting at the Book Funeral Home in Smithville and because of the road conditions they had to have a snow plow lead the hearse to Grassie, it was the only way they could get there. My uncle, Lorenzo Lyster Duck was one of the pallbearers but because of the weather he was unable to get our car out our long lane onto #20 highway. It just happened that the big FWD snowplow came down the Grassie road at that time and he was able to catch a ride back to Grassie. After the funeral service at the home the plow which had waited at Grassie, led the way to the Tweedside Cemetery and then waited until the grave side service was over and then led everyone back to Grassie.

BIOGRAPHY: When Walker and Estella were married in 1917, they travelled west to Alberta to homestead. They stayed through the first winter and with the coming of spring decided to return to Ontario. Walker could not stand the lack of trees so came back to the home farm and purchased it from his father in 1918. Walker and Estella farmed through good and bad years continuing to plant apple trees. They had a dairy herd and shipped milk. Eggs from their laying hens were sold in Hamilton. Estella related the story of the year they did not have one apple on the farm but contended that farming was a good life. Walker named the farm Belvedere Orchards after a castle he visited in Scotland. In 1948 they built the little grey house up the road and called it Belvedere Cottage. In 1974 Walker was struck by a car while crossing the road and was hospitalized for over a year.

LAND RECORDS: Upper Canada Land Book C 4th July, 1796, Township of Townsend, Report of persons recommended by Paul Averill.
Name: Walker, Isaac Authority: Paul Averill Sworn: Oath taken in Council office. By Whom: J. Muirhead Esq. Lot: 8 Con: 8.
LAND: Isaac Walker requested Lot 8 Con 8 in Townsend Twp. in 1796. However in 1797, Paul Averill ascertained Lot 8 Con 8 had been requested by Isaac Petitt as well. Mr. Averill recognized Isaac Walker as the first improver and had the best right to it. The claim of Isaac Petitt was annulled.
LAND: Upper Canada Land Petitions (Ottawa), film D-2951 W, Bundle S, #25: Petition for land in Ancaster, Lincoln County, Isaac and his wife Catherine (Hair?), daughter of UEL Getter/Better, Captain in Butler's Rangers, had not received any land as a DUE.
LAND: 1800 Ancaster, 8/8 to (878), 1803 to Job Slaght two hundred acres 8/8 To.
NOTE: Isaac's name was on the Voter's list in 1808 on Lot 36 in Ancaster Twp., Wentworth Co., Ontario. Isaac Walker served as a private with the 4th Lincoln Regiment, in the War of 1812 and died of disease. It is was not recorded who Isaac's wide was on the list of those to receive pensions, those listed were the orphan children of Isaac Walker, which would indicate that his wife died before his pension (20 pounds) was applied for. The children were left in the custody of William Walker Sr, Isaac's father. Therefore one may assume that they were brought up in Grimsby/Clinton Twp., Lincoln Co., Ontario.
CEMETERY: St. Andrew's Presbyterian churchyard, Grimsby Twp., Lincoln Co., Ontario: A simple sandstone marker stands at his grave, the inscription reads: "In Memory of Isaac Walker who departed this life 4th November, 1812 in the 37th year of his age."

OBITUARY: Honored Resident Is Called To Final Rest - James D. Bennett Passes Away In His 88th Year - In the death of James D. Bennett, who passed away early on Saturday morning, Beamsville and district have lost a valuable citizen -- one who has been identified with the life of the community for many years, and whose place it will be hard to full. Though past his 87th year, Mr. Bennett was until a short time ago able to be around town and to the very last maintained his intense interest in his home town and people. During the past year he had been confined to the house at varying periods and on Thursday he was taken with his final illness, passing away to well-earned rest early on Saturday morning, Jan. 2nd. Mr. Bennett had done much for the community, and only a short time before his decease he had still shown his interest by freely deeding to the village a valuable lot on Mountain street, to be used for the erection of municipal buildings. The funeral took place from the family residence on Monday afternoon, being attended by an extremely large concourse of friends. Services were conducted by Rev. Wm. Arthurs, of the Baptist church, the pallbearers being L. B. Tufford, M. L. Tufford, L. Collard, W. T. Zimmerman, W. J. Reid and W. E. Boughner. The floral tributes were most beautiful and numerous, coming from friends all over the country. They include choice wreaths from the I. O. D. E. the local Masonic lodge, The Baptist church, Baptist Ladies Aid and the Village Council. The Express is indebted to the Spectator for the following brief notes on Mr. Bennett's life. Born in the township of North Grimsby in the year 1838, his parents were natives of Belfast, Ireland, and were prominent among the earl settlers in the Grimsby district. In 1854, when still a lad, he came to Beamsville as an apprentice in William Kew's carriage manufacturing plant, remaining here for some sixteen years. In 1870 he established a carriage and wagon plant of his own and made a big success of the business for many years, retiring in 1897 from any further active participation in the business. The carriages of Bennett manufacture were known far and wide throughout the Niagara district for their excellent workmanship. In the year 1881 deceased was appointed postmaster, retaining the position until 1895. He was elected a school trustee in 1897, and continued to sit on the board of education for varying periods during his life time. From 1880, for eleven successive years, he sat at the council board and was elected to the reeveship in 1891. Mr. Bennett had been a member of the Masonic order since 1866 and was the oldest member at the time of his death of Ivy Lodge, A.F. & A. M. He was the firs noble grand of Freestone lodge, I. O. O. F., and took an active interest also in Orange lodge affairs. Always a strong Baptist in religion, the activities of this denomination were very dear to him. He liked to have old friends near him and delighted to entertain them with anecdotes of other years, of people and places. His collection of manuscripts, books, photographs and statistics, relating to the earliest days of the district are unique, and he was constantly adding to its value. He leaves to mourn a long and honorable career, and a life well lived, a widow, one son, James of Hartford, Conn., two daughters, Mrs. W. D. Fairbrother, of Beamsville, and Mrs. Fred Smith, of Springfield, Mass.

Deceased was born in Clinton township and with his brother Wellington, of Grimsby, who survives, were the two remaining members of a large family. Deceased was of a happy, affable disposition and remained rooted to his native haunts and associations which were very dear to him.

He was a faithful citizen of Beamsville and one of the old guard that did duty and did it well to maintain the prestige of his home town.

OBITUARY: Respected by many, Don Awde dies -- Don Aude's commitment to the Town of Grimsby and its people remained firm for most of the century. Through his teaching career at Grimsby Secondary, and his long standing membership in the Lions Club, Mr. Awde worked hard encouraging those around him to better themselves. Mr. Awde, 84, died Saturday, Dec. 31 at West Lincoln Memorial Hospital after a long respiratory illness. A funeral service was held Jan. 4 at St. Andrew's Anglican Church. Many people knew Mr. Awde best as the principal of Grimsby Secondary School. He started his teaching career there in 1936, later becoming a 25-year principal of the school, before retiring in 1973. As both teacher and principal, Mr. Awde was active in all aspects of the school, including sports and social events. Mr. Awde's retirement in the spring of 1973 was so significant in Grimsby that his last day of work was designated Don Awde Day. Over 700 colleagues, friends, and former students, some from as far away as California and Vancouver, descended on Grimsby to recognize his impact on the community. Mr. Awde also farmed some 30 acres of cherries and peaches on a strip of land near Kerman Avenue and Livingston. In his early days as principal, it was not uncommon for him to interview prospective teachers in the orchards as he tended to the trees. Mr. Awde was actively involved in the community, serving 48 years with the Lions Club. His flare for music enlightened many in the Lions Club and the Grimsby Barbershoppers. Born in Rainy River, in North Western Ontario, Mr. Awde attended the University of Guelph where he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree. He followed that with studies at the Ontario College of Education. Mr. Awde met his wife Lila, in the early part of his teaching career at GSS. They were married in 1940 at St. Andrew's Church. Shortly after marrying, Mr. Awde joined the war effort teaching air navigation to budding pilots in Aylmer, Ont., and later in St. John, Nova Scotia. "He was a man of integrity," says Larry Rendall, a former GSS teacher whom Mr. Awde "hired with a handshake" in 1968. "He was always urging teachers and students to better themselves. "He had no air of superiority and his leadership came from his confidence" and the ability to stir confidence in others", said Mr. Rendall, who gave the eulogy at Mr. Awde's funeral. Mr. Awde leaves wife, Lila, sons Brian and John, daughters Wendy and Debbie, and three grandchildren. The Awde family has established the Don Awde Scholarship Fund to recognize GSS students who excel in athletics, music, and academics. Friends may send remembrances to The Fund, c/o Grimsby Secondary School.

OBITUARY: Ingersoll Chronicle, Thursday, July 27, 1916 -- Death Calls Dr. I.R. Walker -- Dr. I.R. Walker died Tuesday afternoon at London where he had been living for over a year. Although not unexpected, owing to an extended illness, the announcement of his death was received with profound regret by scores of friends in Ingersoll and vicinity. The late Dr. Walker was widely known as a medical practitioner here for nearly fifty years. During this long period he had resided continuously in Ingersoll and in the discharge of his professional duties established a wide acquaintanceship in all parts of the County. He possessed a genial personality, mingled freely with his friends and always asserted a public spirit. On al matters of public interest he never hesitated to give expression to his views. He was deeply interested in the development of the town and when conditions warranted he gave hearty support to all measures intended to advance the interest of the whole community. He was thorough and methodical in all his work, even in the slightest detail. In numerous homes in the town and throughout surrounding districts he was held in the highest esteem. The friendship of years had ripened into affection, suggesting the strongest attachment for the” family physician”, whose presence and words always inspired confidence. The late Dr. Walker in the days was a member of the Mechanics Institute and was instrumental in creating a more lively interest in literary work in the town. He also was an enthusiastic curler. For many years he was actively connected with Ingersoll Curling club and at the time of his death was an honorary member. For many years he was deeply interested in the educational affairs of the town and very acceptably served as a member of the Board of Education. He was strong in his advocacy of thoroughness in the teaching system, and vigorously championed projects calculated to increase the efficiency of the schools and to make the environment more congenial to the students. There are many citizens who will recall with interest debates which featured the sessions of the Board of Education upwards of fifteen years ago. Dr. Walker, as was well known, made a study of “school law”, and he was always fortified in this respect when engaging in a spirited debate. The late Dr. Walker was also an ardent devotee of the gun and rod and the early days derived keen pleasure from his hunting and fishing expeditions in neighbouring districts. He possessed a kindly disposition and merited the esteem of all with whom he associated. He is survived by his wife and one son, Dr. Harry Walker, of Wetaskiwin, Alberta.
OBITUARY: Oxford Tribune, Thursday, July 27, 1916 -- Dr. I.R. Walker -- The announcement of the death of Dr. I. R. Walker in London, on Tuesday afternoon, was not unexpected as he had been ill for almost a year, confined to a hospital in London and his recovery was doubtful. Dr. Walker practiced medicine here for half a century and was widely known and highly esteemed by all who knew him. The medical fraternity particularly benefited by his knowledge to the profession and many timely advises were given them by late physician. He was very successful in his large practice and to the older friends his passing will be regretted keenly. Dr. Walker was a lover of sports and took an active interest in them in former years. The Curling Club elected him an honorary member. The town’s welfare was of great to him and whenever possible, Dr. Walker was doing all he could do aid its cause. He also served on the School Board for sometime. He is survived by Mrs. Walker and her sons, Dr. Harry Walker of Wetaskawin, Sask., survives him.

LAND HISTORY: On April 21, 1827 Philip bought 200 acres of land in Nelson Township from Edward Pilkington, Lot 13, Concession 2. The Tremaine Map, 1858, shows the land divided in two from east to west. In 1854, Philip granted the south string hundred acres to his eldest son Hiram and 1860 granted the north half to his son William Henry, with whom he lived. November 15, 1883, under the power of a mortgage, Duncan McGibbon, a lawyer, became the owner of the north 100 acres. Several others were owners in an interim period but in 1891 Walter Reid Walker, assisted by his brother William David Walker, purchased the north part and returned the Walker homestead to the Walker family. July 27, 1921, Walter R. Walker sold the farm to Thomas J. Reid. Mr. Reid, a first World War pensioner, operated the farm, growing apples and raspberries. To further supplement his income he drove the mail route out of the Milton post office. In the 1930's Mr. Reid contracted with Mr. Fred Babcock to remodel the stone house. Fred Babcock was one of those excellent craftsmen of the era. He redesigned and remodeled the stone house including the addition to the second storey that is so outstanding today. James and Audrea Costigan obtained this property in 1958. The work of remodeling and restoring the beauty of this historic structure has been continued by Audrea Lear-Costigan to the present.

ITEM: In the Ontario Directory, Josiah Corlis is listed as a physician in St. Thomas, years 1882, 1884 and 1886 - 1887.
BIOGRAPHY: Josiah Corlis began his distinguished career first as an ordained Baptist minister, which he practiced until after his marriage to Margaret Walker in 1862. In 1866 he decided to become a doctor and entered McGill University, Montreal, from which he graduated in 1869 as a doctor of Medicine and Master of Surgery (M.D., C.M.). He first started practice in North Cayuga township, Haldimand county, and moved to Simcoe in 1871. In 1873 he moved to St. Thomas where he opened an office opposite the C.S.R. station. Dr. Corlis was a public spirited man and served on the school board from 1874-76 and the town council from 1876-78, and again in 1884. He was also active in the Masonic Lodge, and became the first Worshipful Master of St. David's Lodge No. 302 in St. Thomas, in 1873.
In 1881, his wife Margaret Walker Corlis enrolled at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons at Kingston from which she received her M.D., C.M. in 1885. She joined her husband in practice at a new office he built in 1885 at 2 Horton St. In 1891 the Corlis family decided to immigrate to Australia, settling in New South Wales. In Australia, Dr. Margaret Corlis became the first woman to be registered as a medical practitioner. In 1894, the two doctors went to the western Australian gold fields and served in Kalgoorlie and Menzies, where Dr. Corlis became the first mayor. During a typhoid epidemic in 1897, he looked after patients over a 150 mile area. They returned to New South Wales in the early 1990's and in 1905 took a trip back to St. Thomas. Dr. Josiah Corlis died in 1922 in Gamba, New South Wales, and his wife, who was blind for the last few years of her life, died in 1925. All three of their sons became doctors.
NEWS ITEM: The Mensies Miner, Saturday, Dec. 14th. -- A Norfolk Man To The Front in Australia -- Dr. Josiah Corlis, formerly of Simcoe, who some years ago moved to Australia, is making his mark in that distant land. The Mensies Miner of Saturday, Dec. 14th. says: "Few medical men are better known on the gold fields than Dr. Josiah Corlis, for he has been settled on the fields since 1893, and received his goldfields baptism at Southern Cross. Dr. Corlis was born near Simcoe, Ontario in Canada, and graduated at McGill College, in Montreal, in 1869, taking the degree of Doctor of Medicine, as well as that of Master of Surgery, the highest attainments which the medical schools in Canada afford.
Subsequently he settled at St. Thomas, Ontario, and practiced there for 20 years. Vivid pictures of the riches of Australia, and the ease with which fortunes were built up, lured the doctor from St. Thomas, and in 1890 he arrived in Sydney, when he received the appointment of Government medical officer for the Bellinger and Nambecca districts, and he practiced in Ferramont. After three years of life in New South Wales, he was drawn to the Golden West, and after 18 months in Southern Cross, he was induced to start practice in Menzies, where he remained ever since. Immediately upon arrival here, he was appointed medical officer to the hospital. It required a man with a big heart to undertake such an appointment, because there were so many, and such great difficulties to be overcome. His success in surmounting them is written on the records of the hospital, which shows the lowest death rate of any hospital in the colony. Mining is a hobby of the doctor's and some day he hopes to make a "good punch." In August last he was created a Justice of the Peace for the North Coolgardis District, and is now mayor of Mensies.

NEWS ARTICLE: SAD DROWNING ACCIDENT AT PT. DOVER -- Body of Covel Rankin Found Lashed to Boat --- Still Searching for Body of Archie Edmondson -- This community stood appalled on Thursday forenoon when the news was given out that Covel ("Gint") Rankin and Archie Edmondson were missing and that it was feared some calamity had befallen them on the treacherous waters of Lake Erie. The two young men left here Wednesday forenoon in a staunch sailboat in order to set a small gang of nets in the vicinity of Woolley's Point, which is in plain sight of this village. They took no lunch with them and should have been home again in the early afternoon or before nightfall at the latest. The day was an ideal one till about four o'clock when a strong gale from the eastward sprang up which would necessitate a "beat" home by the tedious process of tacking. Some uneasiness was felt when they did not return by tea time, but it was supposed that they had found it useless to keep on beating for their home port and had run before the wind with the object of beaching the boat or seeking one of the few -- too few -- places of safety along this portion of the north shore of Lake Erie. When Thursday morning came after a night of howling wind with its bitter ice storm, and no tidings of the missing ones had been received, it was feared that the worst had happened. The fleet of fishing tugs had gone out to the grounds to lift their nets, but having found the operation to be detrimental to the fishing gear, were returning to their home port. Captain Duncan MacDonald set out with the Jean F. and patrolled the bay to Turkey Point, and thence across to Ryerson's Island, without finding any trace of the imasing [missing] boat or its occupants, and returned home in the face of a heavy sea.
The telephone system even then was beginning to give way, owing to the ice storm, but wherever possible parties residing near the shore were asked to start a patrol of the shore. A patrol was on the point of setting out from this place when a telephone message was received that a searcher east of Fisher's Glen had found a boat, the sail and a body, which was thought from the hurried description to be that of Rankin, and the conjecture was verified by subsequent happenings. Shortly after the telephone message came through the lines connecting the Port with the outside world became inoperative, to be followed a few minutes later by the telegraph lines. Later in the evening a wagon arrived bearing the body of Rankin, and it is the opinion of those competent to judge that he was not drowned, but had met his death from exposure. From conversation with the members of three different patrol parties which had been out on successive days, the following facts have been gleamed: Two net boxes and an oar have been found just above Woolley's Point, showing pretty conclusively that some mishap had occurred below -- or on this side of -- the point. Edmondson's suit coat was found just above Port Ryerse. Rankin's oilskin pants were found near the boat, and he apparently cut them with a knife. He had removed his Long rubber boots and had lashed himself to the boat, followed the example of his great-grandfather, who was three times shipwrecked on Lake Erie. His body, however, was lying together with the mast and sail, a few feet from the boat when found.

GOLDEN WEDDING: A most enjoyable afternoon was spent at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Absalam Hoover, Rainham Township, near Hoover's Point on the shores of Lake Erie, it being the celebration of their 50th wedding day. The afternoon was ideal, the greetings and good cheer to the host and hostess were many. At 1 p.m. the guests to the number of about seventy were invited to a sumptuous dinner spread on the spacious lawns in front of the old homestead. Dr. Walker, of Dunnville a nephew of Mr. and Mrs. Hoover was chairman of the occasion and a number of very appropriate addresses were tendered the host and hostess, being spared to celebrate the half century mark of wedded life. The guests were from Parry Sound, Owen Sound, Toronto, Hamilton, Hagersville, Port Dover, Simcoe, Dutton, Bloomsburg, Waterford and Villa Nova. The very interesting part of the afternoon was the following. On request of the guests, Dr. R. Trotter, of Waterford read an address and presented the host and hostess with a Diamond Disc Edison Phonograph, the centre of which was embossed with gold, emblematic of the occasion. The happy occasion was brought to a close late in the afternoon and the guests congratulating each other on such a pleasant time and then dispersed to their various homes after singing " God Save The King."

On the 27th of September, of the year 1871 Absalom journeyed into the Township of Townsend and captured a charming young maiden by the name of Cecelia Walker, a daughter of Adam Walker and Hannah Trotter, who were pioneer residents of that wealthy part of Townsend area the then thriving village of Villa Nova. After this marriage was consummated by elder Jacob VanLoon, of the City of Brantford, they returned to the old homestead in Rainham, where through sunshine and storm they have continued to reside, and the beautiful farm stead which stands today as a monument to their thrift and frugality, is one well worthy of emulation. On Saturday, Sept. 26th, over one hundred friends and relatives gathered at the old farm home on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of their marriage to dine and grasp the hands of these sturdy pioneers, and thought of how they were beloved in the community in which their entire life had been spent.

Cherry of Hagersville; Mr. Jos. Back of Villa Nova; Mr. W. H. Wheeler and Mr. Walker Hoover of Selkirk.

DEATH: The cause of his death was drowning in Sandusk creek.
OBITUARY: Selkirk, May 31 -- Dr. Jonas Hoover, a prominent Selkirk man, was drowned early Tuesday morning in Sandusk creek, three miles from his home. Along with Eli Murphy, also of Selkirk, he set out late Monday night for the creek on a carp-spearing expedition. After midnight through some merriment of one of the occupants, their boat capsized in the middle of the creek. Hoover and Murphy, both good swimmers struck out for shore, which they reached safely. Hoover, in spite of the drenching, was loth to give up his fishing, and he proposed to swim across the creek to get another boat to replace the one they had lost. That was the last Murphy saw of him. He strongly advised the doctor not to attempt to cross the water, but Hoover, a strong swimmer laughed at his companion's fears and said he was determined to fetch another boat. This was about 1 o'clock, and though Murphy waited over an hour and repeatedly called out, no answer came from the swimmer. He then went to the nearest houses and aroused the occupants. Several men turned out and took part in searching for the body of the missing man. It was found four hours later. The coroner decided not to hold an inquest. Dr. Hoover was a graduate of the Detroit School of Medicine, and practiced for a number of years in the state of Michigan. Coming to Selkirk four of five years ago he found he was not allowed to practice in Canada so he took up fishing. His father lives in Selkirk and is well known as a farmer and a fisherman. Mr. Hoover's wife and three children are living at Rodney. His only brother, Abram, lives at Nanticoke. The funeral was held at Waterford this afternoon.
