77 Melburn McDowell received his education in Goderich and Belleville, Ontario. He taught school for two years before moving into the business world. He was an accountant at Capelton Mines in the the Eastern Townships of Quebec. (In 1863, the Capelton Mines, on George Capelton's farm near North Hatley, was established due to the demand for copper coming from the United States during the Civil War). Then we worked for Cordova Mines. (Cordova Mines, probably the most well known of all the Hastings gold rush communities, began in the 1860s as a community named Wariston. It's almost a ghost town located on Highway 48 north of Marmora, Ontario).

He later took over the Cavan General Store and in 1923 moved to Millbrook and started a poultry farm. Later he purchased the Collin's Block in the village and installed an egg-grading station in the basement, feed store and 40,000 capacity baby chick hatchery on the first floor and on the second floor a bowling alley and electric brooder room for baby chicks.

He was a great sports enthusiast and took an active part in the erection of the Millbrook and Cavan Memorial Arena. He was also a member of the school board. He was an elder at St. Andrew's United Church and a lover of music (sang bass in a quartet).

79 Memories from Howard Heckendorn, nephew to Alta (Norma Lucille Clemens's mother) and a Clemens correspondent, London, Ontario.

"Lucille or known affectionately as "Squeal" was one of my closest cousins during my youth. Being 5 years older than myself, she seemed to be my protector from her brother Robert's sense of humor at times. Later in life, when living in Kitchener, I used to see her almost daily for a period when I drove a city bus and she worked at J.M. Schneider Packers. Her passing due to a severe asthmatic condition was a great shock to us all. She's dearly missed by the family". 
Clemens, Norma Lucille "Squeal" (I424)

89 Some internet sources tells us that Benjamin Naylor was born in St. Helen's, Lancashire. Is that a parish or a town? He immigrated before 1839 to Canada. Benjamin and Mary came to Canada sometime before 1839 when their daughter Hannah Keziah was born. Were they married in England before they came, or did they meet and marry in Canada? In 1871 the Naylors were living next door to William McDowell and his family. Mary Winters and Benjamin Naylor were married before 1839. Naylor, Benjamin (I316)
 
90 Spelling of Susannah Fargisson as shown in the IGI file at the LDS Church. Also have a record of it as Susannah Sargisson. The F and S in some forms of writing look a lot alike. We think she is Buried in the North West Section of Bond Head Cemetery, Durham Co, Clarke Twp, Newcastle, Ontario, Canada. There are a lot of very Old Headstones in this Section and unable to read the Inscriptions on many of these Head Stones, they are mostly Limestone and badly weathered. Fargisson, Susannah (I1214)

96 The Cavan store is one of the oldest landmarks in Cavan/Millbrook. First owner in the early 1800's was John Knowlson. In this century there has been a succession of owners: Melburn McDowell, E.

97 The death date is an estimate. The London Room (local history) of the London Public Library provided the following.

We checked the city directories and did discover this:
1933: Rufus Macknight
1934: Nothing was listed
1935: Nothing was listed
1936: Mrs. McKnight (spelled without the a) rooms at 383 King Street. (Marion Laute)
David McKnight (spelled without the a) rooms at 383 King Street. (David L. MacKnight)

(as a point of interest this is the same address used for the marriage of Rufus and Marion Laute in 1915)

From that it appears that perhaps that Rufus died in either 1933 or 1934. I can't find any record of that however. We have the London Free Press and London Advertiser for that time. Unfortunately, we do not have an index for either paper for that time period, so there is no way of searching beyond going thru every reel of microfilm. 
MacKnight, Rufus Choate (I2858)
 
98 The early log school that Ethel Rose McKnight taught in was rough, small and ill-equipped. Like other log schools of this period, Whitfield's school would have been built by the men from the school district who combined their efforts to construct a building measuring 20 by 22 feet. The spaces between the logs were often filled with mud and there were generally two or three windows in the log structure which provided the only light in the room. The interior of the school room was furnished with makeshift benches without backs located around the walls of the room. There was a crude fireplace which provided the only warmth, a table or desk for the master or teacher and a water pail and one cup.

In 1863, at a cost of $607, one of the first brick school houses to be built in Cavan Township replaced the log school of 1841. A well was dug and there was a pump on the grounds. The minute books record the purchase of the blackboard in 1866. This advancement was probably made whenever a new brick school was built. From 1918 to 1930 Miss Ethel McKnight taught at Whitfield's. Many of her pupils earned the Baptie Scholarship for outstanding accomplishment. The building is now owned by the Lions Club. 
McKnight, Ethel Rose (I61)
 
99 The Fallis Line School joined others in 1946 to become part of the South Cavan School Area for which the first slate of officers were: J.H. McKnight, Chairman, A.V. Thorn, Secretary-treasurer, Allen Wood, Suttle Pritchard and Melville Strong. McKnight, John Henry (I77)
 
100 The Frames originally came from the county of Essex, England. Early in the 17th century, Archibald Frame settled in Castlefinn, Donegal, Ireland. His son, Mathew (b. 1748) emigrated to Nova Scotia in 1766 and married Elizabeth Murdock. They lived in Horton, then Stewiacke, where he rented a mill and lumber areas and finally lived at Shubenacadie. Frame, Mary Duncan (I754)
