1 "Being one of the early settlers here he did much toward building up the community, ever exerting an influence in favor of the right. The Methodist Episcopal Church in this place, of which he was a member from the time of its organization, owes a great deal to Father Counter. No one contributed more to the upbuilding and sustaining of that society than he. Here where he has lived for so many years he has ever been held in high esteem, as a worthy citizen and an exemplary member of the community - no one in the community whose loss would be more sincerely regretted. Up until a few weeks since, he had been in good health for one of his years, and his death was unexpected, as few outside of the immediate friends of the family knew of his sickness.

The funeral services were held Monday at the M.E. Church, Rev. George W. Wood, the pastor, preaching the sermon from Acts 13:36. The attendance at the funeral was large, said by old residents to have been the largest ever seen on an occasion of the kind in Belleville. Father Counter leaves five sons and three daughters to mourn his loss, his wife having died about two years since. The sons are: Charles who resides in Toledo, Ohio, Fred in Montana, Henry in Oberlin, Kansas, James in Wray, Colorado, and Theo in Belleville. The daughters are Mrs. J. C. HUMPHREY, Mrs. C. PERRY, and Mrs. A.W. LAWRENCE of Belleville. To the bereaved ones the sympathy of those who knew and loved their kind father are given".

24 " The first LIRETTEs in New Brunswick were Joseph LIRET and his wife, Marguerite GUEGUEN. They were married about 1784 in or near Cocagne, N. B. Joseph was born about 1754; Marguerite in 1767.

Joseph arrived in New Brunswick (then a part of Nova Scotia) likely in the late 1770's. Where he came from is uncertain. There was, however, a family named HILAREST that were settled in Quebec at this time. Some members of this family went by the names of LAIRET, LIRET, LYRETTE. It is possible that Joseph is related to this family, and came to New Brunswick from Quebec. Many authors have assumed this to be the case, such as Regis, Brun, Flora Cormier, and Placide Gaudet. This author, however, has been unable to find any positive proof of this. The name LIRETTE is also found in France, and Joseph may have come to New Brunswick directly from that country. In the absence of positive proof, it is impossible to determine the origins of Joseph LIRET.

In any event, young Joseph LIRET was in the Cocagne area in the late 1700's, and he found employment as a "domestique" on the farm of one Joseph GUEGUEN. Gueguen's land was located near present-day Cap de Cocagne. Joseph GUEGUEN was quite an exceptional man, and he was to become Liret's father-in-law. Since GUEGUEN is an ancestor of all LIRETTE descendants as well, a separate section is devoted to him later in this chapter.

LIRET was not the only domestique working for GUEGUEN. GUEGUEN had been widowed in 1767, and his second wife had since separated from him, leaving him with several children and a large farm to look after. Besides LIRET, GUEGUEN employed at least two others, whose names we know, and likely other individuals, whose identities remain unknown. The two we do know of were Guillaume Mathurin BRISTOL and Simon GAUTHIER.

Guillaume Mathurin BRISTOL was a British immigrant. Tradition holds that he came from Bristol, England. When he landed in Cocagne, he called himself only "Bill" from Bristol. His name eventually became Guillaume (French corruption of William, from Bill), and his last name Bristol, from his origin in Bristol, England. Many of his descendants went by the last name of Williams, probably from Bristol's first name.

BRISTOL is of interest because two of his children married two of Joseph LIRET's children. Thus, BRISTOL is an ancestor of many of Liret's descendants as well. His son, Elie, married Adelaide LIRET, and his daughter Agnes married Hubert LIRET.

Getting back to LIRET, Regis Brun places LIRET in Cocagne in 1778, when GUEGUEN made a trip to Quebec, leaving the farm in the hands of his two sons and LIRET. We can assume that LIRET had been working for GUEGUEN for a while, since GUEGUEN felt confident enough of him to leave the farm under his care.

A romance of sorts apparently developed between Liret and Gueguen's daughter Marguerite, for around 1784, Joseph LIRET and Marguerite GUEGUEN were married. They lived with or near Gueguen, and obtained a grant of 408 acres of land adjacent to Gueguen on March 18, 1791, along with land granted to Joseph GUEGUEN, several of Gueguen's sons, and others. Liret's land was located immediately to the east of Gueguen's, on the South shore of the Cocagne River, between what is today Notre Dame and Cocagne.

Around 1798, LIRET donated 3 acres of land for the construction of a Catholic chapel. The Church of England later contested the title to that land, so the residents of Cocagne put the chapel on runners and slid the chapel, over snow and ice, to another location.

It appears that Joseph was not in the best of health in his last years. According to a land petition of his son Lucien, dated 1826, 3 years after Joseph's death, "... his [Lucien's] late father, who died in 1823, was the last thirty years of his life afflicted with a violent asthmatic complaint and unable to work, being in embarrassed circumstances, ...". Keeping in mind that petitions to the crown were designed to convince officials of the need of the petitioner, and thus sometimes were known to exaggerate the hardship of the petitioner, we can still safely state that Joseph LIRET was not well for the last half of his life, and was possibly unable to work from about 1793 to his death.

Joseph LIRET died on January 15, 1823 at the age of 68, and was buried in the parish cemetery at Grand Digue. Marguerite GUEGUEN remarried after Joseph's death, to Charles LEBLANC, son of Augustin LEBLANC and Francoise HEBERT, on 22 September 1829 at Barachois. She died around 1844."
Written by Tony LeBlanc, Lirette researcher. (Website)

As stated above, Tony LeBlanc can find no definitive proof of the origins of Joseph LIRET. Another researcher has documented Joseph as the son of Joseph LIRETTE and Helene Le-Roux CARDINAL, stating Joseph was born 5 Oct. 1724 in Charlesbourg, Quebec and baptized on 7 October of that same year. The name originates as HILAREST as it continues back to Fontenay, Poitou, France, as early as 1623.(Rootsweb)

25 " The only daughter of the family was educated at the public school and Collegiate Institute in Ingersoll and spent two years at Havergal College, Toronto. She then took up nursing as a profession, was trained at the Western Hospital, Montreal, where she proved a bright student and earnest worker and graduated in due course. Associated with other friends she pursued her work so energetically and, especially in connection with some serious typhoid cases that her health broke down and she had to return home. The anxieties of the war period and the absence at the Front of so many members of the family circle prevented the complete recovery which had been hoped for.

26 " Thomas BREHAUT, the third son, went to Mirimachi, as a young man. He married Sarah NOBLE of that place and settled there. His family numbered eight, four of whom are dead.

The sons are farmers" BREHAUT, Thomas Smith (I352)
 
27 " When her older sister, Cassie, died in 1912 leaving seven young children she filled in for a time as housekeeper at the Munns. It was probably about 1914 when she was there"

She moved to the States shortly after her time with the Munn children and took up nursing. She had plans to go to medical school to be a doctor but gave up on that somewhere along the line. She was a matron at the New England Hospital in Boston for years. "

"As the youngest surviving member of Ben BECK's family, Lille inherited the home in White Sands. The lot was part of the DERBY farm and they had first right of refusal in case of a sale. Lille sold the property to them, and in 1997 there was no evidence that the Beck home had ever stood there"

35 "Alice Effie WILSON was born on October 5, 1900, the first child for John and Alice WILSON. She grew up in Amabel township, Bruce County, and attended high school in Wiarton, followed by Normal School. Effie spent her entire teaching career in Toronto, and as far as I know she also lived the whole time in the same apartment at 5 DeSavery Crescent.

When we moved down from the North, Dad went to look for a farm and Mom and her babies stayed with Aunt Effie. I remember two things that fascinated me, the electric lights and the big bathtub.

Effie never married though not from lack of opportunity. In her younger days a friend once suggested "Effie would marry the first man that asked her." to which she replied "Well I didn't". She became the stereotypical old maid school teacher, horrified when a friend's daughter had a child out of wedlock, and scolding Aunt Edith for serving her guests beer. "It's not good for them". She forgave her little sister for marrying a foreigner but never did like Dad.

In 1935 Effie bought a new car which she drove for the next 15 years. It was a chocolate brown Dodge coupe and it had a radio! Shortly after she got it she set out on a cross Canada drive, stopping in Port Arthur to visit Lillian, and then on to British Columbia to visit Bert and his family. Aunt Effie was good to her nieces and nephews.

She inherited the Woodman homestead house in Wiarton from Aunt Laura WOODMAN, and used to spend her summers there. Every year we got to spend a few days "summer holidays" with her, an event we looked forward to not realizing she was doing our mother a favour. She would take us to the beach, the movies, historic sites and to visit old relatives.

In our household we celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve, and Aunt Effie always came and stayed over. She brought neat gifts at a time when there weren't very many gifts under the tree. On Christmas Day she would leave our place to spend the rest of Christmas with Uncle Ernie and family.

When she retired she moved to the house in Wiarton and died there about a year later at the age of 65". Biography written by Sigfred KNUDSEN, 2006.

36 "All baptismal names were French, and in Guernsey this appears to have been a French-speaking family, though they may well have been bilingual. ( Elizabeth WINDSOR's aunt, Mary WINDSOR, and sister, Jeanne WINDSOR, both married Englishmen, as did Jean LELACHEUR's sister, Marie. They all continued to live in St. Peter Port. All the names appear to have been immediately anglicized once they came to P.E.I. Jean became John, (in many records, John, Sr.,), his son, Jean Windsor, became John the Younger; Henriette became Harriet; Elizee became Elisha; and Barthelemi became Bartholomew." LELACHEUR, Jean (I699)
 
37 "Almost everyone in Preston Village was very poor as it was in the days of the depression. My father had no work for years.

39 "An interesting wedding ceremony took place on Saturday, July 22, at the Parish Church, St. Just, at 10 am, when Mr. John TREGEAR, farmer, Bosworlas, was united in holy wedlock to Miss Ada HALL, eldest daughter of Mr. G. H. E. HALL, of Truthwall. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. T. Taylor.

The bridesmaids were the Misses Frances HALL, (sister of the bride) and Annie OLDS (cousin of the bride). They wore white dresses and white hats with ehliotrope flowrs. The best man was Mr. Thomas TREGEAR (brother of the bridegroom). After the ceremony the happy pair were driven to the bride's parent's home, where the wedding breakfast was provided. In the afternoon the bride and bridegroom, in company with a large number of wedding guests, were driven to Porthcurno, where a pleasant time was spent. At night a reception was held at the bride's parent's home, and one and all spent a most pleasant time.

40 "Annie Lillian WILSON was born on December 21, 1909 in the "Ottowell Settlement" in Amabel Township, Bruce County, Ontario. She was the fourth and youngest child of John and Alice WILSON. Her siblings were Effie, Albert (Bert), and Ernest (Ernie). When Lillian was nine years old the family moved to a farm in North Keppel Township, Grey County (a distance of about 30 miles) The farm was very hilly, and the buildings were located in a valley at the end of a very long lane. Behind the farmstead was a forest in the middle of which was a small lake known locally as the "Slough of Despond".

Lillian "passed the entrance" (finished elementary school) at the age of 12 but didn't start high school. In those days there were no school buses and country students who wanted to go to high school had to board in town (Wiarton) She stayed home to help her mother. Her mother died when she was 16 and her father three years later. She said he lay down on the couch in the kitchen after supper while she was working beside him and went to sleep. She started high school then and won the proficiency prize for first form (grade 9). She attempted to complete the five years of high school in two more years and stayed with her sister, Effie in Toronto to attend school there. But it was not to be and she never graduated having suffered a nervous breakdown in her final year.

Lillian moved to Port Arthur, Ontario in 1935 to enter nurses training there. The strain was too much for her fragile emotional state and she ended up working as a housekeeper in a doctor's house in Port Arthur. Some time later she went out to the tiny Danish community of Pass Lake to care for a bachelor who had broken his leg in a soccer game. While there she met a handsome Dane named John KNUDSEN who had come to Canada in 1929. They were married on September 11, 1937.

Life was pretty hard during the Depression on a little homestead in the bush. John didn't much like cutting trees to make a farm, so he built a large henhouse and established a market garden to supply the market in Port Arthur with eggs and vegetables.

Their firstborn son, Sigfred John (named for his two grandfathers) arrived on October 4, 1938. Dad had come to Canada in 1929, landing in Halifax and taking the train directly to Saskatchewan where he worked on a farm. He then migrated east as far as the Lakehead and acquired the homestead in 1931. He knew he sure didn't like Saskatchewan, and wasn't too keen about the Northern Ontario bush, but didn't know that there was any part of Canada that was any better. Mom, having come from Southern Ontario persuaded him to go "down east" and have a look around. He was met by Uncle Ernie who showed him around the Owen Sound area, and decided immediately to move the family.

Olga was born on August 31, 1940 and six weeks later we set out on the long train journey. Mom travelled with her two babies, and Dad went separately in a rented boxcar with his truck, machinery, livestock and cat. They bought a farm north of Owen Sound which was our home for the next 12 years.

Mom loved babies although she was a little less enamoured of obnoxious kids. Thyra was born December 18, 1942, and Krista arrived April 6, 1944. Then there was a bit of a break until Kamma was born April 3, 1951. In 1953 we moved to a much larger farm near Meaford. Little brother, Johannes Brooks was born there July 4, 1954. As a kid he was called John B., but later adopted his second name, Brooks.

Mom liked sewing and knitting, but her real passion was reading, often at the expense of housework. She belonged to a Book of the Month club for many years and also visited the public library regularly. Over the years we had regular contact with other members of the Wilson family--Aunt Effie, Uncle Ernie and Aunt Nellie, Uncle Jim, Aunt Rubie and Uncle Jack, Aunt Lizzie, and on occasion Aunt Ethel and Uncle Frank, and Aunt Mina.

In 1957 Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy. But two years later it came back, this time as a brain tumor. She died on May 14, 1960. John B. was five years old". Biography written by Sigfred KNUDSEN, 2006.
