101 "A sketch of the history of the Parish of Woodstock"
1848-1850. Rev. John Bell Worrell, M.A. (Now rector of Oakville and canon of Christ Church Cathedral, Hamilton.)

St. Jude's Cemetery, 258 Lakeshore Road West, Oakville, Ontario
St. Jude's Cemetery was established in 1853 when five acres of land were purchased on the shore of Lake Ontario about one mile west from present-day downtown under the leadership of Reverend Robert Shanklin. A large rectory was built on the lake shore and a cemetery was established on the northern portion of the property. St. Jude's Anglican Church was then located on Colborne Street in the building that would later become the Bank of Montreal. The church was relocated to the corner of Dunn and William Streets in 1883 after Cannon John Bell Worrell got lost in a winter blizzard walking home after a Sunday evening service.

Not found in 1881 census.

106 "a writer and poet of much reputation, styled "Acadia's Gentle Bard;" he was a contributor to various papers and periodicals; his only collection of poems was published after his death under the title of "The Harp of Acadia;" (Whitman, 780)
A school teacher according to daughter Mary's marriage registration.

Of John MacPherson, the poet, the late William Marshall has this to say, "He was born at Liverpool in 1817 and died at North Brookfield, Queens County in 1845. Consumption ended his short and tragic life. He was totally unfitted for the privations of a pioneer settlement. He tried school teaching and carpentering and could not make a living, but he wrote songs in his time of ill health and despair. He was buried in a field near the Old Annapolis Road, where it crosses the hill fronting Lake Tupper. The only stone to his grave was a common roadside slate on which the widow had carved with a nail J. MacPherson, 1845. Sixty years later the loneliness of the spot stirred R.R. McLeod to collect a fund for a suitable monument. The remains of the young poet were transfered to the churchyard at North Brookfield where a modest marble inscribed with his verse and the old slate stone, resever to the community his almost forgotten name. In 1862 John MacPherson's poems were collected and edited by John Thompson, Editor of the Nova Scotian and father of the fourth premier of Canada, and published as the "Harp of Acadia, which is now (1937) very rare.

108 "After their marriage they moved into a new house on the French River, where they raised a family. Two of their sons took over their father's business after his death. Alexander's first ship was built in 1824 and was the first of 146 vessels built by the family firm. By the 1840's his yards were empolying some 200 men and turned out five or six vessels a year. He held a large acreage of timberland, from which his workers cut vast quantities of timber to be sawed at his mills and shipped overseas on his ships. He died a few days after returning from a sitting of the Legislative Council at Halifax, to which he had been elected in 1838. His death was a great loss to the community as he had been a leader in the Church, interested in education, an officer of the Militia and a member of the Court of Sessions over which he at times presided."

110 "Alexander was an officer in the army of King George III. Upon his retirement from the army, he went to the West Indies to secure his pension and died there. His brother James states in a land grant file that Alexander died of the effects of bad climate. Yellow Fever was the cause of hundreds of deaths in the British Army while stationed in the West Indies and could have been the cause of Alexander's death. Upon hearing of his brother's death, James went to New Brunswick and brought widowed Hannah and their children back to Truro with him." ( Kent, Col. Alexander (I96475)
111 "an artist and art critic of much note". (Whitman, 734)
Sarah W. Whitman
Sarah de St. Prix Wyman Whitman (1842– 1904) was an American artist and illustrator, stained glass designer, and author.[1]
Early years
Sarah Wyman was born in Lowell, Massachusetts in 1842 to banker William Wyman, but by her third birthday the family moved her to Baltimore, Maryland in the aftermath of her father's involvement in a bank scandal,[2] where she spent her childhood with her wealthy Wyman relatives. When she turned 11, she moved back to Lowell, in 1853 where her education was through tutoring and self-education.[3][4] At the age of 24, she married Henry Whitman, a prosperous wool merchant, and moved to Cambridge, then lived above a lively salon in a spacious townhouse in the crest of Beacon Hill.[5] And, summered on the Beverly Farms, an exclusive section of Boston's North Shore.

A late start for a professional artist, Sarah, at age 26, was first trained in Boston by William Morris Hunt, then in 1877 she went to Paris for a year, to study with Thomas Couture at the Villiers-le-Bel. Within a decade, Sarah was well established, and had her studio; "The Lily Glass Works" set up at 184 Boylston Street, Boston[6] and traveled widely, exhibiting at the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

Stained glass design

In the 1890s she focused on stained glass, and became one of the leading designer of stained glass windows, including two windows in Memorial Hall, Harvard side by side of three windows executed by Tiffany, as well as windows in the Schlesinger Library, and Trinity Church in Boston.

In her 1894 book "Women Illustrators", Author Alice Cordelia Morse says;

    Mrs. Sarah W. Whitman of Boston and Margaret N. Armstrong have taken a firm hold on the publishers, and won recognition from the public, by their appropriate, tasteful, well-studied book decoration.


According to the August 7, 1901, New York Times article called "Art Awards at Buffalo", Sarah was honored with a Bronze Metal for her submitted work in the Pan-American Exposition: 'Paintings in oil, water color, pastel, and other recognized mediums; Miniatures, cartoons' category. Artist, such as; Edwin Austin Abbey, John White Alexander and James Whistler took Gold in the competition.

    "Robert Browning in his Relation to the Art of Painting"

Later years

In the later years, Sarah, having no children, moved in with her sister Mary Rice, where they shared a home on Portland Street in South Berwick, Maine. Sarah died in June 1904, at the age of 62.

Before her own death, her friend and business partner finished a literary project called "Letters of Sarah Wyman Whitman" published in 1907, three years after Whitman's passing.[1]

DODGE, William Longley (fl. 1866-79) was active in Halifax, Nova Scotia where he was recorded as an architect and operator of a planing mill in that city. He operated an office as an architect in Hesslein's Building, Hollis Street, Halifax (McAlpine's Halifax City Directory, 1872-73), and resided on Tower Road in that city, where he designed his own residence, a distinctive Italianate villa only recently demolished in 1989. He may have collaborated with his brother John A. Dodge, who can be credited with a number of Gothic designs for ecclesiastical works in several towns in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
He is almost certainly the same 'Mr. Dodge, Architect of Halifax' who furnished the plans for the Anglican Church at Ellerhouse, near Windsor, N.S., in 1875 (Halifax Daily Reporter, 3 April 1875, 2), and later that same year he was noted as 'Mr. Dodge, an architect of Halifax', the designer of the Methodist Church at Amherst, N.S. By 1879 he appears to have returned to his home in Annapolis County and from there prepared the plans for a sophisticated Gothic design for the new Anglican Church in Pictou, N.S.

130 "Corporal James MacPhee had been serving in the Newfoundland detachment in 1783; (Craig, p. 39); when this detachment was enroute to the battalion headquarters at Windsor, NS the ship was caught in a violent storm and carried off course as far as the Island of Antigua in the West Indies where they were obliged to remain until repairs could be made; Corporal James MacPhee's discharge certificate has survived and is on file at the Public Archives at Halifax, NS; it shows his discharge date as 10 April 1784 with his palce of birth as Inverness-shire and his age as 24 years;" "He served in the 2nd Bn., 84th Regt. and was Corporal when disbanded in Apr. 1784...on 13 Dec. 1785 Cpl. James MacPhee was deeded 200 acres of the regimental lands which had been granted to Col. Small..." (Rawdon/Douglas, 422)

Email from Harris MacPhee, 25 Aug 2017.
Source for the James MacPhee not being a son of John (Sr.) comes from my searching the Halifax archives and looking at the muster lists  of the 84th where John's family are listed starting with Evan as being the oldest. There have been a couple of sources listing James as a son but I have been suspicious of that.  Also I have had considerable contact with Bill MacPhee (now deceased) in Phoenix who is a descendant of James.  We have had discussions (over the years) about James being the son of John Sr. until he had his DNA tested and found that he is a completely different line from my John Sr line.  He displayed markers showing middle east heritage.  Another researcher, Linda MacPhee in Ontario felt James was either a cousin or nephew.  In any event, from my research I'm quite sure James  was not a son of John Sr.
