51 "He farmed with his father in DeSable, Lot 29, until after 1868. Then he leased the farm in Brae, Lot 9, previously occupied by Wm. Moreshead, from Charlotte A. Sullivan, the proprietress. He later purchased the property, possibly after the Canadian government action took control of the P.E.I. lands from the original London landowners and their heirs, in 1875. The farm was 90 acres on the west bank of the Brae River, and he also had 38 acres behind the farms of his neighbours. He was a prosperous farmer. The barn he built still stands today. He was Postmaster in Brae. Both buried in Church of Scotland Cemetery, Milo, Lot 9, P.E.I.. Their 8 children were Duncan, Isabel, Colin, Angus, Mary, Margaret, Flora, and John. Angus inherited the farm". (Angus W. Beck) CAMPBELL, Archibald (I3211)
52 "He was a very successful Mourning/ Linen Draper in York and must have built up quite a fortune as he retired from business, aged 53 to Scarborough. Before then he had been a philanthropist in York and laid several Foundation Stones - one at the Salvation Army Citadel (with General Booth) and another at a local chapel. So rumour has it, when he retired he put most of his fortune into a ship and this turned out to be disastrous as the captain steered a bad course and the ship foundered and was lost. Joseph then had to return to York to start up in business again, in a smaller way, but still in the main street of York - Parliament Street. My grandmother, his daughter met my grandfather Edward Penty at the shop, where Edward was apprenticed as a Draper. Before marrying, my grandmother became an officer in the Salvation Army - she must have been inspired by General Booth, [William Booth and his wife, Catherine were responsible for establishing the Salvation Army] who it is said stayed with Joseph whenever he visited York. Joseph himself was a lay preacher and had strict and staunch principles." BASS, Joseph (I4804)
53 "Henry Brehaut died in 1848, aged 81, his wife in 1864, aged 96 years.

58 "His death in the prime of life, caused by consumption brought on by exposure, while helping to cut a vessel out of ice, was the first break in the family. His remains lie in the English Church Cemetery" (1) BREHAUT, Daniel (I351)
59 "His mother died when he was 12, and he went to sea that summer with his father, helping to earn a living for the family. He continued in school for a time, but each year he spent more time on the family vessel. In 1916 he sailed with his father to New York in the Madeira, a 280-ton three-masted schooner. They carried lumber up and brought hard coal back. When he was 17, his father bought a second schooner, the Henry H. Dicks, and put him in command of it."

"In May 1940 he became one of the few schooner captains to actually hold a master's certificate. "

There were no servants at that time because we visited many times as Sara was most gracious and entertained often.... Besides being a successful farmer, he was a graduate of the University of Toronto in 1884. He was still alive in 1935 as much of this information came from a history prepared by him, celebrating one hundred years of Cuthbert's in Canada." CUTHBERT, James S. (I1522)
64 "John Richard THOMAS was born in 1838, at Richmond, Kentucky, married Mary Jane COOMBE in 1861, at Macon, Illinois, and died November 15, 1916, at Beaver, Oklahoma. He was a member of the Congregational Church and the Masonic Lodge. His wife, Mary Jane COOMBE, was born at Newton Abbot, Devonshire, England, and came with her parents to the United States when she was twelve. She was confirmed in the Church of England and later became a member of the First Christian Church in Beaver.

To this union were born ten children; John Coombe (died in infancy); Louella Mary Elizabeth; Clara Belle; Annie Laurie; Selina Almira; Nettie May; Margaret Aronia (Ora); William Hayes; Arthur Garfield, and Maude Omega.

The family moved from Illinois to Missouri, where they operated a hotel and store. When these were destroyed by fire they moved to Kansas, and from there to Beaver in the spring of 1887. The five youngest children accompanied them to Oklahoma while the four eldest remained in Missouri.

In 1869 Mr. THOMAS was commissioned postmaster at Green Ridge, Missouri serving as postmaster for twelve years and holding the same office at Beaver for sixteen. He served in the Union Army for four years during the Civil War and was a member of General GRANT's personal bodyguard at Vicksburg. His love for his country and the flag was one of the strongest principles of his life.

He lived the life of a pioneer practically all of his days, being among the early settlers of Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma. He knew what it was to undergo the privations of a pioneer, and for a time he had to make a living for his family by hunting game for the wholesale market with his two young sons, but he never gave up and was known by all as a man whose word was as good as his bond. He was kind, honorable, broadminded and generous to a fault.

His wife, Mary Jane, was a typical pioneer mother. Her genial, friendly manner and motherly nature won the good will and affection of all who knew her. Ties of friendship were close in those days when the early settlers had to depend on each other in times of trouble. Her cares and prayers were not in vain for she lived to see her family of boys and girls grown to manhood and womanhood, well educated, respected and successful citizens". Written by Eleanor Tracy.

He played for a short time with the Tommy Dorsey Band and few other good bands. He could pick up any instrument and play it. As my great grandmother used to say, ' He had the ear'. He never took lessons. He played the violin and many reed instruments. He would hear it and be able to play it. Lyman was an alcoholic and drifted around a lot. He was also a foundryman and owned his own company in Dallas, Texas at one time. He was stabbed to death in a rehab in San Antonio, Texas. " SMITHAM, Lyman Elgyin (I6153)
71 "Many friends will learn with sadness, regret and sorrow, the death of an old and esteemed resident, in the person of Mrs. Robert NORSWORTHY, August 16, 1927. Mrs. Norsworthy had a host of friends through her character and Christian sympathies. I remember they sang 'What a Friend we have in Jesus' at her funeral.

74 "Mary Harvey YELLAND met George Edgar DUKE, who was from London, England and whose family came to Canada to live when he was 14. They met at a Guerney Foundry picnic where he also worked with Grandad. When there was no work in Toronto, George went to Detroit to work. His brother was there and wrote him to come, because there was lots of work. That is how my family got to Detroit. Mary came home each time to have her children but did not get back to Canada for two of them, Faith and Kathleen. They did return to Canada some time later to stay and bring up the family. George delivered milk here as he did in the states, in the big milk trucks. In Toronto he delivered by horse (his name was Barney) and buggy, then later by truck. George then quit the milk route and went back to work at Guerney Foundry which had changed its name to American Standard. For a while Dad worked in the factory and then transferred to the office. While married at one time they lived at 45 Hook Ave, Toronto West. This was the house I remember the most. We had such happy times in this house.

86 "The first settlers in this south-west corner of Prince Edward Island were three American Loyalist families, listed in the 1798 census as Nicholas HUGH, with a family of three, and William SENCABAUGH, and Mrs. FOSTER, each with a family of five. For several years they were the only inhabitants of Lot 64, the area bounded by the Strait, the Queens County line, and Murray River and Harbour". (draft article on Guernsey Cove, written by Robert C. TUCK). HUGH, Nicolas (I2791)
87 "The groom was William CUNDAY, a Bachelor of this parish. The bride was Mary HOBB, a Widow of this parish. They were married by banns by the curate, Nicholas DYER on 18 January 1786. They both signed their own names. The witnesses were John WADE (who signed) and John CUNDAY (who made a mark)."

Above information received from archivist at Cornwall Family History Centre citing microfiche of marriage at St. Stephens by Saltash.

[If Mary was actually a widow at the time of this marriage, then we must assume the first time she married she was still a very young woman, given the number of children she had after her marriage to William. What Mary HOBB's maiden name was is unknown but there must be a strong connection to a HOSKIN line given it's inclusion in four of her children's names. There was a Mary HOSKIN, baptized 23 May 1766 in Pillaton, to John HOSKIN and Joan. (Parish register) No marriage has yet been found for a Mary HOSKIN to a HOBB in this time frame which might leave her a widow.

As it stands, William and Mary were the parents of 17 children born over a period of 26 years; while not impossible, it is staggering. It has been suggested that William married a second time, thus accounting for the large number of children. Unless he married another "Mary", it appears she outlived William. Mary can be found in the 1841 census, age 75, living with (presumably) her daughter Harriett's illegitimate daughter, Elizabeth CUNDY; they were in Botus Fleming where William had just died a year earlier. This age would place her birth in the appropriate time frame. Also, in the 1851 census Mary appears as a "grandmother" in the home of Cornelius CUNDY, her daughter Betty Hoskin CUNDY's illegitimate son. Unfortunately her age is given as 65 on the original census, which confuses the issue; nevertheless it could simply be an error for 85. Until further documentation is located it may be almost impossible to make further conclusions.] (Anne Brooks)

88 "The Isle of Colonsay, Argyllshire, Scotland, was home to Darrach ancestors. It is about 10 miles long and about 2 miles wide. In 1880 its population was about 800, and now it is about 100. The Old Parish Records in Colonsay only go back to 1796, and leave us without details on most of the 1806 relatives who emigrated". Angus William Beck.

Her death occurred on June 1st., after a long and tedious illness, leaving seven children to mourn their loss." Truro Daily News - June 6, 1900. WORKS, Jane (I3748)
90 "The remains of the late Mrs. Mary NORSWORTHY, whose death occurred in Walkerton on Friday last, in her 93rd year, were brought to Ingersoll on Monday. The funeral took place from the residence of her son, J. C. NORSWORTHY, in the afternoon to St. John's Cemetery, Thamesford".

92 "Their son Paul le jeune was born near St. Gabriel in January 1848." Paul married Marie Henrietta De LaBARRE and had a large family. (

Paul DUPUY's wife was an accomplished pianist as evidenced by this article published on 6 May 1899: " Mrs. Paul DUPUY of San Antonio is visiting Captain Ditto's family for a few days, prior to visiting friends at her former home at Boardman. Mrs. DUPUY is reported to be one of the most accomplished pianists in the state".

Her death was reported in the Ocala Evening Star on 26 October 1901. "The body of Mrs. Paul Richard DUPUY was brought to Boardman Thursday, October 24, from San Antonio for interment in the Catholic cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. DUPUY were members of one of the oldest families in the community, having come here many years ago, a young couple from Louisiana. They settled with a number of Louisianians at what is known as the Point on Orange Lake. Their home was in the midst of a fine wild budded grove previous to the freeze of 1894. Necessity after this caused them to move to San Antonio. Mrs. DUPUY leaves a husband and six children to mourn her death, besides many friends who admired her many good qualities".  
DUPUY, Paul Richard (I11850)
93 "There is some doubt about the birth date of the Beck's third child, Mary Ann. The family bible has 1813, but a stone at her grave says 1812. If she was born in 1813 it would appear likely she arrived after the family reached Guernsey Cove. Likely the ship taking the family reached P.E.I. in May since ship owners were anxious to start as early as possible to make two voyages before winter arrived again. Actually births at sea were far from unknown. The women of those days appear to have been a tough breed." ( J. Vere BECK, May 1982) BECK, Mary Ann (I114)

98 "WIDDICOMBE-IN-THE-MOOR. On Thursday last the remains of Mr. Henry CAUNTER, of Ponsworthy Farm, were interred in Widdicombe Churchyard, an the corpse and mourners conveyed thirther in a hearse and mourning coach. After the funeral it seems that the drivers (or at all events, the driver of the coach) partook much too freely of the refreshments provided, for after leaving Ponsworthy, on the return home to Ashburton, the coach was upset twice, and its inmates - a Mrs. NORRISH and a Miss PENNY - much injured. The former had her shoulder bone broken, and the latter her hip dislocated. They were lodged in some houses near at hand, and the following morning taken to their houses at Ashburton in a cart."

100 "William TURGOOSE was born in Lincolnshire, England. He first immigrated to Illinois, U.S.A. While there, he developed a horse trading business, ran a threshing machine and other agricultural pursuits. In 1861 he trekked across the plains to California in the covered wagon mode of those days. He arrived in Sacramento when that district was experiencing a flood. Hearing of the Cariboo gold strike he sold some of his horses. He kept four and landed with them in Victoria. He went to work with the horses on the old Esquimalt Road. After saving enough money, he sold his horses and headed for the Cariboo, where he bought interest in the famous Ruby Claim on Williams Creek. After two years he sold out his claims and came back to Victoria. and decided to settle in the District. He went out into Saanich and bought a farm originally owned by a H.B.C. doctor by the name of Tuzo. It was being then operated by a man named Fronton, probably on a rental basis, as he does not appear on a voters list of that period. This man planted a fifteen acre apple orchard. The farm consisted of five hundred acres and William TURGOOSE paid $10.00 an acre for it. The Northwest corner of this land is the centre of Saanichton. It stretched East to the Indian Reserve and South to the Michell farm. Part of it now is called the Saanichton Farm, while another part is owned by a grandson, Willard MICHELL.

After purchasing the farm, Turgoose made a trip to England, then back again to Illinois to marry his sweetheart, Emma POPE, then back to Saanich in 1865 to finally settle down. He bred purebred horses of the Morgan strain and introduced the Durham or Shorthorn breed of cattle. The progeny of the horses were in demand by the livery stables, while the progeny from his cattle became the foundation stock for many cattle ranchers. William TURGOOSE died in 1885, but his wife survived him till 1922. They had a family of seven children, one boy and six daughters. The first child, Fanny, remained a spinster. Emma married a building contractor by the name of MERKLEY. Annie married W. D. MICHELL of the pioneer Michell family. Carrie became Mrs. POPE. Mr. POPE was a sawmill man. Lottie was the wife of Bob STEWART, a miner. Winnie married Jack BROOKS, son of Henry James BROOKS, who had bought the old Deeks farm, or Logana Farm of years later. William TURGOOSE did not occupy any civic positions but he was keenly interested in the development of the district and gave land for the South Saanich School. The proviso of the gift was that it could only be used for educational purposes. The land still belongs to the school district, but the school itself was abandoned many years ago. There was a Post Office established at the Turgoose place, the forerunner of the Saanichton P.O."
