DNA: We have a Family Tree DNA confirmation of the connection between Bill Whiteside (the ggg grandson of Robert Waugh and Isobel Bell through Jessie Waugh & Alex Campbell) to my sister Glenda Waugh (ggg granddaughter of Robert Waugh and Elizabeth Wilson). We also have an additional two confirmations with  an FTDNA match with Sheila and Ian Laidlaw to Glenda.

Note: We are not absolutely certain that the Isobel Bell born in Ewes is the same person but her age at death seems to fit perfectly. There was also an Isobel Bell (father James Bell) born July 27, 1783, in Torthorwald, and an Isobella Bell (parents Thomas Bell and Isobel Howison) born on July 17, 1783, in Carluke. This Robert Waugh is the 2nd son of Robert Waugh (b. abt 1745, d. June 4, 1822) and Jean Rule (b.abt. 1749, d. April 6, 1815) of Lochmaben. The children of Robert Waugh and Jean Rule were: William (b. Feb 15, 1778, Dryfesdale, d. abt 1797, age 19); Jessie (Janet) (born abt 1784, Lochmaben, d. March 18, 1863, married Robert Blacklock); ROBERT (b. abt 1784 in Lochmaben, d. Sept 8, 1850, in Hamilton, Ontario); John (b. May 25, 1788, d. May 19, 1855, married Eliza Eleanor); James (b. Jan 20, 1791, in Lochmaben, d. 1846); Charles (b. Oct 7, 1793, in Lochmaben, d. Feb 2, 1863, married Anne Beattie); Jane (b. unknown, d. age 15). Robert Waugh, Jr. and Elizabeth Wilson had an "illegitimate" son, GEORGE, born June 16, 1807, (see more about George Waugh) but Robert married Isobel Bell...

Robert Waugh and Elizabeth Wilson (born about 1785, in Holmhead, Lochmaben, Dumfriesshire) had a son named George born June 16, 1807, in Lochmaben. See Robert Waugh & Elizabeth Wilson

However...

Robert married Isobel Bell on March 20, 1807, in Lochmaben, and they had at least eight children: William (born June 15, 1807, in Lochmaben), John (born Oct 22, 1809, in Lochmaben), Mary Waugh (born Nov 8, 1812, in Shilling hill, Dryfesdale), Jean (born March 22, 1816, in Turnmuir, Dryfesdale); Jessie (born June 6, 1819, in Lockerby, Dryfesdale); Agnes (born Oct 6, 1821, in Moffat); Robert (born Aug 1, 1824, in Moffat); and Isabella (born about 1831). On William's OPR it states, "William, son to Robert Waugh Junior & Isobell Bell in Lochmaben..." On some of the other OPR births to Robert and Isobel, Robert's occupation is listed as "joiner".

Upper Canada Rebellions of 1837
John Waugh

According to John Waugh's obituary, he served in the militia during the Upper Canada Rebellions of 1837.

Battle of Montgomery's farm, Upper Canada, Dec 7, 1837
Battle of Montgomery's farm, Upper Canada, Dec 7, 1837

The rebellions started in Lower and Upper Canada. The Lower Canada Rebellion was a larger and more sustained conflict by French Canadian and English Canadian rebels against British colonial government. The Upper Canada Rebellion was an abortive uprising in Upper Canada against Upper Canada oligarchy, the Family Compact, followed by a series of raids, skirmishes, and other small actions over the next year, many of them launched from the United States. The Battle of Saint-Eustache, Lower Canada. The rebellion in Lower Canada began first, in November 1837, and was led by many leaders such as Wolfred Nelson, Louis-Joseph Papineau, and Edmund Bailey O'Callaghan. The Lower-Canada rebellion probably inspired the much shorter rebellion in Upper Canada led by William Lyon Mackenzie in December. In addition, there were other grievances in Upper Canada. Settlers resented the gifts of land and official status to the Anglican Church to the exclusion of Roman Catholics, Methodists, and other religions. In addition, there were tensions caused by mass immigration from the United States, particularly in the western areas. While the initial rebellion in Upper Canada ended quickly with the Battle of Montgomery's Tavern, many of the rebels (including Mackenzie) fled to the United States. They used it as a base for launching further raids into Canada, in cooperation with American Hunters' Lodges. The raids did not end until the rebels and Hunters were defeated at the decisive Battle of the Windmill, nearly a year after the first defeat near Montgomery's Tavern. - from Wikipedia

The Waugh Family in "America"
Robert their 2nd Son, died in America, 1850 aged 66 years.

Robert Waugh, Joiner, his wife Isobel and their daughters Jane and Jesse (Jannet) arrived in New York City from Liverpool aboard the Tarolinta on Sept 5, 1844, with stated destination "Upper Canada" .

Upper Canada existed from December 26, 1791 to February 10, 1841 and generally comprised present-day Southern Ontario. The prefix "upper" in its name reflects its geographic position higher up the river basin or closer to the headwaters of the Saint Lawrence River than that of Lower Canada or present-day Quebec to the northeast. - Wikipedia

1803– John Ryckman, born in Barton township, described the area in 1803 as he remembered it: "The city in 1803 was all forest. The shores of the bay were difficult to reach or see because they were hidden by a thick, almost impenetrable mass of trees and undergrowth...Bears ate pigs, so settlers warred on bears. Wolves gobbled sheep and geese, so they hunted and trapped wolves. They also held organized raids on rattlesnakes on the mountainside. There was plenty of game. Many a time have I seen a deer jump the fence into my back yard, and there were millions of pigeons which we clubbed as they flew low."

James Balfour was born in Hamilton on Christmas Eve 1852. He was born into a Scottish Presbyterian family that fostered a hard-working ethic and almost stubborn individualistic ambition to achieve. His father Peter was a carpenter, whom often worked with Stone Masons (Freemasons) to erect stone-block houses, factories and commercial buildings from the abundant local limestone. These mid-19th century buildings belong to Hamilton's own Stone Age. Many of these fine buildings still exist, like Sandyford Place at Duke and McNab Streets a terraced house that was popular with Scottish immigrants. Peter Balfour worked with architect William Thomas on the 1850s castle-like mansion known as "Ballinahinch" for the wealthy merchant Aeneas Kennedy in the Durand neighbourhood. William Thomas most famous local building is St. Paul's Presbyterian Church. However, another lesser known building – but one that has garnered some attention of late – is neighbouring the Lister Block to the north on James Street, known locally as the "Thomas Building". It is likely that these top architects and skilled craftsmen, influenced Peter Balfour's desire to see his son James become a great architect. James was sent to Edinburgh and trained as an architect and designer. James returned to Hamilton in 1875 at the age of 23. - from James Balfour Left his Mark on Hamilton.

James Balfour was born in Hamilton in 1854. His father, Peter Balfour (1819-1897), emigrated to Canada from Scotland in 1842 and settled in Hamilton where he opened his own business as builder, carpenter, and joiner, and later served as city alderman and assessment commissioner. James Balfour, at age eighteen, was sent to apprentice with the prominent Scottish architectural firm of Frank Peddie and John Kinnear in Edinburgh. After spending an additional year in New York, he returned to Hamilton in 1876 to open his own practice at the age of twenty-two. In the 1880's and 90's Balfour carried out several major commissions in Hamilton and elsewhere. These included an office building in Hamilton for the Canada Life Assurance Company (1883); Hamilton City Hall (1887-90); Detroit Institute of Fine Arts (ca. 1887), a building for which a competition was held with entries by leading American and Canadian architects; the YMCA residence in Hamilton (1889); the Hamilton Boys' Home (ca.1892); the Tuckett Tobacco Factory in Hamilton (ca. 1895); and Alma Ladies' College in St. Thomas (ca. 1896). Balfour was responsible as well for many residential buildings in Hamilton. The house at 250 James St. South, dating from the 1870's, and those in a terrace on Herkimer St., dating from 1880's, are noted in the Architectural Conservancy's publication, Victorian Architecture in Hamilton, 1971. Balfour was also a member of the Ontario Society of Artists. In 1883 he exhibited with the Society his proposal for a "House under the Mountain" and in 1887 his competition entry for the Toronto City Hall . - from James Balfour Collection

1850 ..........

Robert Waugh

Robert Waugh died on Sept 8, 1850, in Hamilton, Ontario, at the age of 66 and is buried in the Hamilton Cemetery. - from Donald Norris

Although I can confirm that Robert WAUGH was buried in Hamilton Cemetery on September 9, 1850 and a “Mrs. WAUGH” was buried on September 16, 1860, I cannot tell you where in the cemetery they were laid-to-rest. Our records for the period 1850-1870 do not contain lot- or grave locations for any of the burials listed during those years. Unfortunately, this is all the information that I have. - Elizabeth C. Manneke, BA, Hamilton Municipal Cemeteries

The oldest areas of the cemetery would be the old City sections immediately surrounding the Office (see: Sections A1 to H5), as well as the Church sections (see: Sections Christ Church A to E, and Church of Ascension A to D). Although some of our burial records go back to the 1850’s (i.e., the old City sections), these records are sketchy and many- particularly for the time period 1850-1870 -do not include a location within the cemetery. The Church sections’ documentation begins in 1872 only. In addition, many graves in these areas are unmarked; meaning that you will not be able to find any information about them on websites, such as the Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid (OCFA). The OCFA website contains the Ontario Genealogical Society index only, which is based on information taken from tombstone inscriptions. If there was no stone erected on the grave or a person’s name was never inscribed on an existing stone, there would be no mention of them on the OCFA website. - Elizabeth C. Manneke, BA, Hamilton Municipal Cemeteries

William Waugh & Marion Bell

Robert's son William Waugh and his wife Marrion Bell and their family emigrated to the USA aboard the S/Y William Tapscott arriving into Castle Garden, New York, on Feb 16, 1856. - from castlegarden.org / Candy Weatherby William probably used the inheritance from his uncle John's death to help pay for the passage.

 

The William Tapscott

SY William Tapscott
The William Tapscott: 1525 tons: 195’ x 41’ x 21’
Built: 1852 by William Drommond at Bath, Maine

The William Tapscott was one of the largest full-rigged ships built in Maine during the 1850s. She was a typical "Down Easter"-sturdy, moneymaking, moderately sparred, and designed for carrying capacity. She was a three-decker with a square stern and billethead. Among her owners, including her namesake, were such well-known mariners as William Drummond, Gilbert C. Trufant, and George B. Cornish. She hailed from New York. After plying the oceans for about forty years the William Tapscott was lost in the English Channel in the early 1890s.

See original document

William Waugh (the one born in Lochmaben, Dumfries, in about 1807), was employed in Hawick as a foreman at Dickinson & Laings, a tweed manufacturing mill.  He and his wife, Marian, his son, Robert, Robert's wife, Agnes [ McVicar ], and his daughter Janet (Jessie on the transcript), a yarn spinner, his son, John, and his daughter Mary, and his son William, emigrated to Canada aboard the Willliam Tapscott, sailing from Liverpool to New York, USA, arriving on Feb 16, 1856, at Castle Garden. Contemporaneous records of Mormon travelers arriving on the same time span, show the following about the voyage.  The Wm. Tapscott was a wooden sailing vessel which carried a crew of 19 and 800 passengers.  The ship was 195 feet long, 41.3 feet in the beam, and 20.7 feet from the deck to the keel (it was a three decker, so each deck would be less than 8' apart).  It seems to have been a one-class ship,, with passage being 5 pounds sterling.  Passengers had cook their own rations, issued at the beginning of the voyage.  These consisted of the following (per adult) l lb. each pork and flour, 3/12 lbs ship's biscuit, 1-1/2 lbs each oatmeal, beef, rice and peas, 1 lb. potatoes, 1 lb sugar, 2 oz each tea and salt 1/2 oz each mustard and pepper and 1 gill (4 fl. oz) vinegar (for scurvy, as the peas were probably dried and the beef and pork were undoubtedly salt pork and salt beef, rather than fresh).  Each adult was issued 3 quarts of water daily, to be used for cooking , drinking, dishwashing and bathing (must have been precious little bathing).  After the voyage (30-42 days, depending on weather), the ship arrived at Castle Garden, predecessor to Ellis Island.  There it remained in quarantine (if contagion was found).  The Mormon settlers went to Utah via Canada and it is assumed the Waugh family took the same route as they stated their destination was "Canada West."  This mean to ride on a boat (by 1859 this would have been steam - previously maybe sail), up the Hudson River to Albany New York, then a train ride to Niagara, crossing into Canada to Windsor, Ontario.  William Waugh is shown in the 1861 personal census of Galt (enumeration district 5) as residing at Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, being a 53 year old weaver born in Scotland.  He was widowed and living with his daughter, Jannett, who was keeping house.  They lived in a two story frame house they shared with three other families.  Records of Hamilton Cemetery show William Waugh purchased Lot 4 of Section C-6 on September 27, 1858.  His wife was buried there at that time (no first name given) and he died in April, 1866, and was also buried in that cemetery.  Family lore has it that William's was the first Masonic funeral in Ontario, but I have been unable to confirm this. - Candy Weatherby

Ed note: Robert Waugh and Agnes McVicar were not aboard the Ship as they were living in Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire, in the 1861 Scotland Census. They had a son William E. born in 1853 in Scotland. The 1910 US Census for William indicates the immigration year as 1874. There was a 20 year old William Waugh that arrived into New York on June 29, 1874 aboard the City of Paris.

Although I can confirm that Robert WAUGH was buried in Hamilton Cemetery on September 9, 1850 and a “Mrs. WAUGH” was buried on September 16, 1860, I cannot tell you where in the cemetery they were laid-to-rest.

See Eleventh Massachusetts Infantry, The Manassas Campaign

Robert Waugh (son of John Waugh and Mary Hastie) enlisted as a Private in Company F, Eleventh Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry in Boston, Massachusetts on April 30, 1861. He was promoted to a Sergeant on Sept 1, 1862 (just a few days after the Second Battle of Bull Run) and was discharged on June 13, 1864.

Arriving in Washington, D.C. in June, the 11th was one of only three Massachusetts regiments to participate in the First Battle of Bull Run. The regiment spent the early fall of 1861 helping to build fortifications around Washington. In October, the 11th was stationed at Bud's Ferry in Indian Head, Maryland where they remained on picket duty for the winter of 1861-1862. The 11th saw its first combat during the Peninsular Campaign in the spring of 1862. They were heavily engaged during the Second Battle of Bull Run, participated in the Battle of Fredericksburg, and suffered severe casualties at the Battle of Chancellorsville and the Battle of Gettysburg. - Wikipedia

First Battle of Bull Run, July 21, 1861
First Battle of Bull Run, July 21, 1861

The First Battle of Bull Run, also known as First Manassas (the name used by Confederate forces), was fought on July 21, 1861, in Prince William County, Virginia, near the city of Manassas. It was the first major land battle of the American Civil War. Just months after the start of the war at Fort Sumter, the Northern public clamored for a march against the Confederate capital of Richmond, Virginia, which they expected to bring an early end to the rebellion. Yielding to political pressure, Brig. Gen. Irvin McDowell led his unseasoned Union Army across Bull Run against the equally inexperienced Confederate Army of Brig. Gen. P. G. T. Beauregard camped near Manassas Junction. McDowell's ambitious plan for a surprise flank attack on the Confederate left was poorly executed by his officers and men; nevertheless, the Confederates, who had been planning to attack the Union left flank, found themselves at an initial disadvantage. Confederate reinforcements under Brig. Gen. Joseph E. Johnston arrived from the Shenandoah Valley by railroad and the course of the battle quickly changed. A brigade of Virginians under a relatively unknown colonel from the Virginia Military Institute, Thomas J. Jackson, stood their ground and Jackson received his famous nickname, "Stonewall Jackson". The Confederates then launched a strong counterattack, and as the Union troops began withdrawing under fire, many panicked and it turned into a rout as McDowell's men frantically ran without order in the direction of Washington, D.C. Both armies were sobered by the fierce fighting and many casualties, and realized the war was going to be much longer and bloodier than either had anticipated.

The Peninsula Campaign (also known as the Peninsular Campaign) of the American Civil War was a major Union operation launched in southeastern Virginia from March through July 1862, the first large-scale offensive in the Eastern Theater. The operation, commanded by Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan, was an amphibious turning movement against the Confederate States Army in Northern Virginia, intended to capture the Confederate capital of Richmond. McClellan was initially successful against the equally cautious General Joseph E. Johnston, but the emergence of the aggressive General Robert E. Lee turned the subsequent Seven Days Battles into a humiliating Union defeat.

The Second Battle of Bull Run, Fought Aug 29th 1862
The Second Battle of Bull Run, Fought Aug 29th 1862

After the failure of the Peninsular Campaign, the 11th Massachusetts next saw combat during the Second Battle of Bull Run on August 28, 1862. As part of Brigadier General Cuvier Grover's brigade (Second Brigade, Third Division of the III Corps), the 11th Massachusetts led its brigade in a charge on the entrenched position of the Confederates along an unfinished railroad bed. After fierce hand to hand combat, the charge of Grover's brigade broke through the enemy position. As Colonel William E. Blaisdell, commanding officer of the 11th Massachusetts, wrote, "The enemy broke in confusion and ran, numbers throwing away their muskets."[8] Historians, including John J. Hennessy, have claimed that the breakthrough of Grover's brigade might have resulted in a Union victory if the breach had been exploited and reinforced.[9] However, Union reinforcements did not arrive, Grover's brigade were surrounded and forced to retreat back over the unfinished railroad, suffering severe casualties. 40 percent of the 11th Massachusetts were killed, wounded, or captured. - Wikipedia

Battle of Fredericksburg, Dec 13, 1862
Battle of Fredericksburg, Dec 13, 1862, by Kurz and Allison

The Battle of Fredericksburg was fought December 11–15, 1862, in and around Fredericksburg, Virginia, between General Robert E. Lee's Confederate Army of Northern Virginia and the Union Army of the Potomac, commanded by Maj. Gen. Ambrose Burnside. The Union army's futile frontal attacks on December 13 against entrenched Confederate defenders on the heights behind the city is remembered as one of the most one-sided battles of the American Civil War, with Union casualties more than twice as heavy as those suffered by the Confederates. - Wikipedia

Battle of Chancellorsville, April 30 - May 6, 1863 by Kurz and Allison
Battle of Chancellorsville, April 30 - May 6, 1863 by Kurz and Allison

The Battle of Chancellorsville was a major battle of the American Civil War, and the principal engagement of the Chancellorsville Campaign.[4] It was fought from April 30 to May 6, 1863, in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, near the village of Chancellorsville. Two related battles were fought nearby on May 3 in the vicinity of Fredericksburg. The campaign pitted Union Army Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker's Army of the Potomac against an army less than half its size, Gen. Robert E. Lee's Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. Chancellorsville is known as Lee's "perfect battle" because his risky decision to divide his army in the presence of a much larger enemy force resulted in a significant Confederate victory. The victory, a product of Lee's audacity and Hooker's timid decision making, was tempered by heavy casualties and the mortal wounding of Lt. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson to friendly fire, a loss that Lee likened to "losing my right arm." - Wikipedia

Battle of Gettysburg

The Battle of Gettysburg was fought July 1–3, 1863, in and around the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It was the battle with the largest number of casualties in the American Civil War [7] and is often described as the war's turning point. [8] Union Maj. Gen. George Gordon Meade's Army of the Potomac defeated attacks by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, ending Lee's invasion of the North. - Wikipedia

Battle of the Wilderness, May 5-7, 1864
Battle of the Wilderness, May 5-7, 1864

The Battle of the Wilderness, fought May 5–7, 1864, was the first battle of Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant's 1864 Virginia Overland Campaign against Gen. Robert E. Lee and the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. Both armies suffered heavy casualties, a harbinger of a bloody war of attrition by Grant against Lee's army and, eventually, the Confederate capital, Richmond, Virginia. The battle was tactically inconclusive, as Grant disengaged and continued his offensive. - Wikipedia

In the spring of 1864 the 11th was made a part of Brewster's Brigade, Mott's Division, Hancock's (2d) Corps. In the battle of the Wilderness, May 5 and 6, 1864, the regiment was heavily engaged on the Plank road with severe loss. At Spottsylvania, May 12, it participated in Hancock's assault on the Bloody Angle. About May 20 it received the recruits and re-enlisted men of the 1st Mass. Inf., which had completed its term of service. It participated with slight loss in the operations near the North Anna and at Cold Harbor, On June 12, the date of the expiration of service of the regiment, enough men re-enlisted to preserve its identity as the 11th Mass. Battalion, to which were added two companies of recruits and re-enlisted men of the 16th Regt. The colonel of the 11th, William Blaisdell, was killed before Petersburg, June 23, 1864, while temporarily commanding the "Corcoran Legion." The 11th was engaged before Petersburg in the operations of the summer and fall of 1864, was in the pursuit of Lee's army in April, 1865, and was near Appomattox the day of the surrender. Returning to Massachusetts, on July 14, 1865, the regiment was mustered out at Readville. - from Eleventh Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry

Robert W. Waugh was discharged on June 13, 1864.

OBITUARY
John Waugh
Dec 29, 1886, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

Mr. John Waugh died at his home, No. 78 Bay street north, last evening. Four years ago he suffered a paralytic stroke, and for the past two years he was a confirmed invalid. His death was peaceful and painless. Mr. Waugh was a native of Lochmachen [sic-Lochmaben?], Dumfriesshire, Scotland, where he was born 77 years ago. He came to Canada with his young wife in 1834, and lived in Montreal for three years. Then the little family came up the country and arrived in Hamilton. The rebellion was then in progress, and Mr. Waugh enlisted as a volunteer in the militia, and did his share towards putting down the rebellion. Ever since that time Mr. Waugh lived in Hamilton -that is for nearly half a century. He was a contractor and builder, and many of the fine substantial buildings which adorn Hamilton to-day were erected by him many years ago. He was always very strongly interested in church matters, and he and about a dozen others used to worship God together in the Presbyterian style, in a little log school-house that stood where the Central Presbyterian church stands. There are only two persons living now, who formed part of this little band which was the nucleus of one of the largest congregations in the city: these two are Mr. James Henderson and Mrs. Lees. The present Central Presbyterian church was built by Mr. Waugh. For many years he was a member and one of the managers of the church; but when Rev. Mr. Laidlaw came here, Mr. Waugh became a member of St. Paul's. Mr. Waugh's wife survives him, and there are also living four sons and one daughter. His two sisters, Mrs. Peter Balfour [Agnes] and Mrs. Alex Campbell [Jannet], live in Hamilton. Mr. Waugh was a Reformer in politics, and a consistent one. He was small in stature, but had a big heart, and in all business affairs was the soul of honor. His memory will be tenderly cherished by many old friends.

The Detroit Musem of Art

The board’s building committee was formed on Nov. 8, 1886, and began a competition for the architectural design. It was stipulated that the building must be fireproof, front on Jefferson and be in the range of $40,000 (about $1.2 million today). There were 52 designs submitted to a panel of three architects: Gordon W. Lloyd, Mortimer L. Smith and E.E. Myers. Professor Henry S. Frieze of Ann Arbor served as an adviser. The committee went with the work of James Balfour of Hamilton, Ontario, who entitled his design “Wisdom, Strength, and Beauty.” It was a turreted, rugged sandstone building done in the Richardsonian Romanesque style popular at the time. The Museum of Art had a colonnade with five round arches supported on red granite shafts. This entrance was flanked by two conical-topped side towers with turrets and round arched windows. It looked much like a medieval castle, a fitting home for the antiquities that would be housed within. Sculpture galleries and an office occupied the first floor and a single sky-lighted gallery for paintings filled the entire windowless second story. Patrons reached the second floor by climbing the winding stairs in the castle-like corner towers. - from Buildings of Detroit

Minnie Waugh (daughter of Robert Waugh and Adeline or "Annie Stewart") married Rev. James Frazer Smith (son of William Smith and Maria Corlett) on April 18, 1888, in Hamilton, Ontario. Minnie Waugh and James Smith had at least six children: James Cameron (born about 1889 in Chefoo, China); Robert Waugh (born Oct 10, 1890, in Liu Ching, China); May (born about 1892, died 1894 in Japan); Margaret Lucinda (born about 1894 in Chefoo, China); Elizabeth M. (born 1895 in Sutton, Ontario); and George Munroe Grant (born April 27, 1902, in Bleinheim, Ontario). - 1911 Census of Canada & Ontario, Canada Births, Ancestry.com

James Cameron Smith & Clarice Marguerite Leighton | James Cameron Smith & Mabel Margaret Walker

James Frazer Smith’s nephew, Donald Smith, did a family tree, tracing the descendants of William Smith and Maria Corlett. William was Dr. James’s father and came from Scotland (Duthil parish, near Carr Bridge) as a boy in 1840 with the rest of the family. They settled in Grey County, Ontario. The village of Dornoch, south of Owen Sound, was originally called Smith Settlement.

James Smith and Minnie Waugh had six children. Only Cameron, ‘Lula’ (I believe her given name was Lucinda), and Grant survived childhood. The other three died abroad. Lula burnt to death in a tragic accident while in nursing school in Canada. She was studying late at night by lamplight, and her bedclothes caught fire. - from Christine K. Potter, Dec 12, 2015

 

The Reverend James Frazer Smith

Life's Waking Part - James Frazer Smith

“I wanted to get back to Kingston for Convocation. Besides, in the interval, the most important event in my life was to take place. So with heart-felt gratitude to my benefactor, the professor, for all his kindness, I took the train for Hamilton, Canada, where I arrived at noon, April 18, 1888, and was married that same evening to Miss Minnie Waugh, by her pastor, Rev. R. J. Laidlaw, D.D., of St. Paul's Church. Miss Waugh and I had known each other for some years, and I had been greatly encouraged by her cheering advice, her hopeful outlook and earliest prayers. Few could be more devoted in the cause of For­eign Missions than she was. During our many wanderings and amid peculiar trials and sore afflictions, she was ever a loyal helpmate, loving and true, and in calm or in storm she remained the same brave, cheerful, hopeful, trustful person, always striving to encourage and help all with whom she came in contact. We took our wedding trip to Kingston for Convocation, where I received my M.D. & C.M. degrees.”

Another section described Dr. Smith almost dying of typhus in Kobe, Japan in 1894, “the hope that a couple of months complete rest …. and I would be able to return to Honan and resume work was doomed to disappointment. Instead I was most reluctantly obliged to return with my family to Canada. To add to our sorrow, our dear little girl, May, only two years and six months old, a short time before the date of sailing had succumbed to an acute attack of dysentery, and was laid away in the cemetery at Kobe. She was generally referred to by several of the ladies of the mission as the “sweet little angel” and now she was gone”

“On arriving in Canada from Japan, I proceeded at once with my wife and our two children to the old home at Latona, where a real Highland welcome awaited us from my parents and the sisters and brothers still at home. Next to Father and Mother, the welcome accorded us by good Uncle Donald was such as never to be forgotten. Two sisters and three brothers had married and were in homes of their own and one dear sister, in her fifteenth year, had died.

I did not fully appreciate what our children had missed in being shut up in such close quarters in the compounds in China, until we got home to the farm. The first day after we arrived, our little boy Cammie, now six years old, got out into a level three-acre field that was almost smooth as a lawn. He was so delighted to have space freedom, that he ran gleefully back and forth the length of the field, until he was almost exhausted. Every time he went out to play he asked, `May I go out into the big yard to run?”

- Above transcript provided by Doug Stapleton From Life's Waking Part: Being the autobiography of Reverend James Frazer Smith, pioneer medical missionary to Honan, China, and missionary to Central India

Having been the first medical missionary sent to North China by the Missionary Association of Queen’s University in 1888, no one would be more gratified by the ever-expanding links in the Queen’s-China chain than he would, were he alive today. His China experiences, along with those of his wife Minnie and their children including Cameron, MD’1915, who was born at Cheroo are a truly remarkable story that is related in his autobiography, Life’s Waking Part. Published in 1937, one year before he was honoured with a Doctor of Divinity degree from Queen’s, this account also details the unwavering and meaningful support he enjoyed from his fellow students, and most particularly from Principal Grant. - Edward Smith, Peterborough, Ontario, Queen's University Alumni Review, 2010 Issue #1.

Goforth's interest was in China. He attempted to join the China Inland Mission, but decided that his Presbyterian thinking was incompatible with the Brethren ideas espoused by Hudson Taylor. And so, with the support of a newly-formed Presbyterian mission, he and his wife set out for China in 1888 and settled temporarily in Cheefoo. His appointed coworker, James Frazer Smith followed a few months behind. Two weeks after Smith arrived, on this day, September 13, 1888, Goforth and Smith began a tour of the North Honan region of China. This is where they intended to work, and they felt they must get a feel for the region. North Honan had flooded badly the year before and the damage was still being addressed. Smith and Goforth observed first-hand the efforts to repair the breaches made by the Yellow River. Altogether the two traveled over 1,200 miles, assessing the entire region. They gathered whatever data they could during their two and a half month tour and observed the Chinese in their home environment. In December more missionaries arrived and soon four workers were busy translating and preaching. - from Jonathan Goforth Went Forth, Christianity.com

The image of physician as evangelist predominates early literature on Canadian missionary medicine in China. When James R. Menzies graduated in Toronto on 1895, his dual degrees in theology and medicine made him an ideal missionary candidate. The Presbyterian Church in Canada dispatched the reverend doctor to China to begin the first medical mission at Changte in Honan province (Anyang, Henan). In those years the practice of medicine by missionaries was considered an evangelistic strategy aimed at gaining the trust of prospective converts; the medical doctor was welcomed where the preacher and teacher were barely tolerated. Canadian Methodist physicians in Szechwan (Sichuan) were reportedly winning their way to the hearts to the people, finding opportunities “multiplying” upon them “every day and hour, for preaching the Gospel in the most effective way.” Two of the earliest Honanese to embrace Christianity were Chou Lao-Chang and Li Chi Ching, blind patients cared for by Canadian doctors Frazer Smith and James Menzies.3,4,5 Such legendary conversions solidified support for medical missionaries within the Presbyterian community, and may explain the subsequent official emphasis on doctors' evangelistic role with their patients. - from James R. Menzies: healing and preaching in early 20th-century China by Sonya J. Grypma

Only one physician in the early years actively supported nursing care. Dr. James Frazer Smith lobbied for the establishment of a position for a missionary nurse to assist him in his work – to help soothe patients, change dressings, manage medical instruments, and sit with ill patients in their homes or in Chinese inns. After an illness forced Dr. Frazer Smith to resign in 1894, there was little practical support for nursing. The other physicians were not interested in having nurses assist them in their work, and no efforts were made to develop organized nursing services. Margaret MacIntosh, the sole nurse at the North China Mission between 1891 and 1914, turned to evangelistic work as her main focus after Frazer Smith left. Although later missionary nurses criticized MacIntosh for her emphasis on evangelism, her relative disregard for nursing practice seems inevitable. It was not until formal in-patient services were developed that the North China Mission formally accepted organized nursing services as essential to the aims of the mission. - from Healing Henan by Sonya J. Grypma

Nurses were not part of the original plan...

HAMILTON CENTRAL PUBLIC SCHOOL

This school, built to accommodate 1,000 students, was the largest graded school in Upper Canada, and became the only public school in Hamilton, at the time of its opening in 1853. Among the earliest examples of an institution inspired by the reforms of Egerton Ryerson, the province's chief superintendent of education (1844-1876), it incorporated his scheme of an integrated, rational, and graduated public education system based upon a central school and primary feeders. The building's original finely proportioned Classical design, by the firm of Cumberland and Ridout, was extensively remodeled in 1890 by the Hamilton architect, James Balfour. His alterations, including a steeply pitched roof, certain round-arched windows and a heightened central tower, created an edifice in conformity with late Victorian tastes.

Home from the West

Lionel Waugh, son of George J. Waugh, arrived home on Monday night from a trip to the Northwest of over three months’ duration. He left here on Aug. 18, and went first to Winnipeg. Passing through Regina and other points on the C.P.R., he finally reached Moosejaw, where he met a man named Howes, who was ranching near that place. Howes was the son of an English gentleman and owned a ranch about twenty miles south of Moosejaw. Mr. Waugh struck up a friendship with this man, and worked on the ranch from then until his departure for home. The job was no sinecure, as there were over a hundred head of horses and cattle to look after. The weather became very cold about Nov. 16, and he determined to come home for the winter. He was prevented by the cold weather from doing so, but finally on Friday, Nov. 26, he mounted a horse and started out for the long twenty-mile ride to Moosejaw with his valise strapped behind his saddle. It was bitterly cold, the snow being a foot deep. The pony often stumbled into a badger hole, so that altogether the ride was not much of a pleasure trip. Notwithstanding that he was well wrapped up, the cold was so intense that when he reached Moosejaw, after a ride of nearly four hours, his ears and nose were frozen. Here he found that the temperature was 38 degrees below zero. He immediately took the train for home, arriving here, as stated Monday night.

CELEBRATING THEIR FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY
Mr. And Mrs. George J. Waugh of this City, Holding Golden Wedding

BOTH WERE BORN IN CITY OF HAMILTON

Mr. Waugh Has Been Fifty-one Years in Business — Started in Same Block

Mr. And Mrs. George J. Waugh, of this city, are to-day celebrating their golden wedding, it being the 50th anniversary of their wedding, which took place in Hamilton, half a century ago to-day.

Mr. Waugh is the oldest merchant in Stratford, having been in business here for fifty-one years. He has also been in the same block from the first. He is 74 years of age.

Mr. and Mrs. Waugh were married in Hamilton, by the Rev. Dr. Ormiston, a Presbyterian minister. Dr. Thompson, formerly of Stratford, was the best man and the late Miss Lila Morgan, of St. Thomas, was the bridesmaid. Mr. Waugh was born in Hamilton, as also was his wife, and attended the New York College of Pharmacy. He then came to Stratford and started business here. In those days, Stratford was not what it is now—a city with paved streets, well-lighted. Mr. Waugh had to carry a lantern home with him after work in the evenings. The business section of the town was then in the vicinity of Huron st., and the sidewalks were but two boards and mud in the roads was knee deep in many places.

Mr. Waugh was connected with the Ontario College of Pharmacy for a number of years, being president for one period. He was a great Mason, holding the highest offices of the order. He was treasurer of the local lodges of Masons and the A. O. W. for 25 years.

Three children survive from a family of eight. There is one daughter, Mrs. H. C. Brewer, of Edmonton, Alta., and two sons, J. Blackburn of Stratford and L.M. Waugh of Los Angeles, Cal.

Mr. Waugh has one brother and one sister living. They are Charles J. Waugh of Los Angeles and Miss Waugh of Toronto. Mrs. Waugh had [sic] three sisters living. They are Mrs. Mitchell, Toronto; Miss Blackburn, London; and Mrs. Kearsing, New York.

A reception is being held at Mr. and Mrs. Waugh’s home this afternoon. Later in October they will take their golden wedding trip to Los Angeles, California, where they will visit their son, Mr. L.M. Waugh, who is at present in this city at the celebration.

Mr. Waugh is a staunch member of the Presbyterian church and a Liberal. He is a life member of the Pharmaceutical Association.

In the same year he was elected Liberal MP for Hamilton West, he used his influence to have a new Armoury built in Hamilton. Although defeated in 1908 compensation came 2 years later in his appointment by Wilfred Laurier as Collector of Customs, at a salary of $3200 per annum, a position he held until his death.

- from Dictionary of Hamilton Biography Vol 11 and Vol 111 1991. Courtesy of Bill Whiteside.

Our Grandfather was a great lover of books, especially tales of adventure. I recall reading with him Robinson Crusoe, Kidnapped, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, the historical stories written by Henty and other classic books popular many years ago. My most vivid recollection of our Grandfathers' home was at 132 Bold St and later at 286 Park St. in Hamilton. The Park St residence also became the permanent home of my younger brother David and myself whwere we lived and grew up for nearly twenty years.. I recall Grandfather in 1917 taking me to a Boarding School in Grimsby ON. The school was Lake Lodge School and had approximately one hundred boys in residence. The Head Master was Mr W J Drope and the school was run on the principles and ethics of similar to the Public Schools in England. We wore Eton suits, prayer before classes, prefects in the Upper School, Latin, French, at an early age and of course, cricket. It was at the school that I began to recover my strength both physically and mentally and it was also at the school that I was told of the death of Grandfather which occurred in November 1919. - From Recollections of Our Grandfather, Adam Campbell Zimmerman (Leonard's son), Oct 29, 2002 (Courtesy of Bill Whiteside)

Adam Zimmerman, our great grandfather, was a lawyer and an involved citizen of Hamilton which he represented as an MP for 4 years. Defeated for re-election he was appointed Collector of Customs by Wilfred Laurier. An interesting sideline to his career was appointment as Honorary President of the Hamilton Tigers Football Team, Inter-Provincial Champions in 1911.. The second Adam Zimmerman, my father's 1st cousin, passed on the story that four Hamilton citizens were to be honoured by placement of their statues in special recesses built into the four corners of the new High Level Bridge (19??) One of these was to be Adam Zimmerman but when it came to light that he and two of the others were all members of Central Presbyterian Church, the powers that be, wishing to avoid some kind of religious based disorder, abandoned the project. The four pediments stand empty to this day. The four recipients were to be The Honourable Thomas McQuesten, Sir John Gibson, Sir William H Hendrie and Adam Zimmerman. Eventually Adam and his son Alex (Alexander Franklin Zimmerman, our grandfather) formed and conducted the knitting business known as Zimmerknit. The business prospered to the point of employing 500-700 persons but gradually declined in the 1950's it was merged with Harvey Woods and thus disappeared. It looks like nobody got very rich on this business but the family when it sold in the 1930's they got their money out , sufficient to sustain Grandad thereafter (comfortably)

Life's Waking Part - James Frazer Smith

Reverend James Frazer Smith, M.D., C.M.
Reverend James Frazer Smith, M.D., C.M.

This section is from 1924 when he had been in India but suffered more ill health and returned to Canada, “It was then, soon after my arrival in Canada, that I was appointed a member of the Foreign Mission Board which had the direction of all the work in the different Foreign Mission Fields of our Church. It was a great de­light to me, to be so enabled to keep in intimate touch with my fellow missionaries and their work, both in Honan and in Central India.

During all the years of my enforced absence from these fields, while I had much pleasure in my work in the congre­gations of the Home Church to which I had the honour of ministering, there was always a longing in my heart to re­turn, if not to take up my work again, at least to visit the fields and have the opportunity of viewing the progress made; and once more to have the joy of preaching to the Chinese in their own tongue. But ever the old difficulty of finances loomed up as a barrier. However, God's ways are not man's ways, and little did I think that a great sacrifice would be required of me before His plans would be accom­plished in my life.

My dear wife, who had been a constant companion, a wise counsellor, helper and comforter in all our journey­ings to and fro in different lands, whose faith had remained steadfast when the days were darkest amid difficulties, trials and sore bereavements, was taken very suddenly ill and in a few hours passed away, leaving the two boys and me to mourn our loss.

Two years previously Mrs. Smith had received a small bequest from a maiden aunt. This was invested in her own name, with the idea that it would build up a little reserve which would help to purchase a small home, when the time came for us to retire from the active work of the ministry. In the absence of a will, the attorney who was settling up her estate said that he had divided it into three equal parts. My younger boy, Grant, said to his brother, 'We cannot take this money, Cameron. Mother told us on several occa­sions that if anything happened to her, she wished father to use this money to help him to go back to visit India and China.' The attorney was much surprised. It was a most generous act on the part of the boys. Grant was in need of funds to go to university. Cameron, with a wife and three small children, was working up a medical practice in a small town. They were decided, however, and urged me to go. I looked upon it as a sacred trust, and commenced to make preparations for the journey. As I was firmly convinced that the time was opportune, I resigned my charge at Blenheim, where I had a pastorate for over seven years.”

Wife of Murray Hemming (son of Ann Mitchell and Thomas Percy Hemming) and mother of Candy Weatherby...

Barbara Thomsen Hemming

HEMMING, Barbara Thomsen (Bobby) -- Age 83, died November 13, 2000. Bobby was born in San Francisco to Harry A. and Eva Thomsen on April 3, 1917. At the age of six, she and her family moved to a home in Burlingame which had been designed by her father. Bobby graduated from Burlingame High School and San Mateo Junior College. On October 19, 1940, she married Murray M. Hemming, celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary just last month, and prior to Murray's death on November 7th. Family and friends, knowing her fierce sense of loyalty, realized that she wished to be with him in death. They had two daughters, Candace (Candy) Weatherby and Sherryl (Sherry) Garcia. While her girls were small, Bobby was a stay-at-home mom who volunteered for the PTA, was a Brownie and Girl Scout leader. When they were older, she put her considerable energy and talent to work as an escrow agent, for the State of California as an old age assistance case worker and, finally, as a clerk for the San Mateo Municipal Court. Although in later years she stoutly endured great pain and walked with difficulty, Bobby continued to travel, to cook wonderful meals for family and friends, and to take care of Murray. She was a warm, generous and loyal wife, mother and friend. In addition to her daughters, Bobby is survived by her brother Harry Thomsen; her sons-in-law John Weatherby and Jorge Garcia; four grandchildren; and two great grandchildren; and many friends. According to their wishes, Bobby and Murray will be cremated and their remains scattered together at sea. Contributions in her honor may be made to Poplar ReCare, 875 Stanton Rd., Burlingame, CA 94110 or a favorite charity.

Raymond Hemming

Retired rear admiral

Raymond Hemming, a Menlo Park resident, died January 1 following a brief illness. He was 81. A memorial service will be held Sunday, January 14, at 2 p.m. in the recreation center of Central Park in San Mateo. A San Mateo native, he graduated from Stanford University and Stanford Business School, and did advanced study at the Harvard School of Business. Mr. Hemming joined the U.S. Navy as a commissioned officer following the attack on Pearl Harbor. At the end of the war, he maintained his commission in the U.S. naval reserve and retired after 37 years of service with the rank of rear admiral. He was a longtime member of the Association of Naval Aviation, the Tailhook Association and the Navy League. In recent years he was a member of the Aircraft Carrier Hornet Advisory Board on the U.S.S. Carl Vinson committee. His association with the Navy was one of the great passions of his life, his family said. In 1958, Mr. Hemming established a private accounting practice in San Mateo that became, in partnership with Edwin Morse, Hemming Morse Inc. He was known for his philanthropy, and gave ongoing support to the College of San Mateo, Stanford University and the U.S. Navy, according to his family. Mr. Hemming is survived by Barbara Hemming, his wife of 40 years. The family prefers that memorial donations be made to a local history foundation, the San Mateo Community Foundation, the Navy League, Mills Peninsula Hospital Foundation, or the Stanford Business School.

Lula "Lou" Marjorie Smith

TRAVERSE CITY - Lou Kyprie, 89, of Traverse City, formerly of Ann Arbor, died at her home on Tuesday, July 12, 2005.

Lou was born Sept. 18, 1915, in Saskatchewan, Canada, the daughter of Dr. Cameron Smith and Clarice Leighton Smith. She grew up in the village of Lakefield, Ontario, and graduated from Lakefield High School and Peterborough Collegiate. After training as a Registered Nurse at Kingston General Hospital in Kingston, Ontario, she took a job at the University Hospital in Ann Arbor. She subsequently worked as a dental nurse in Detroit, where she met and married Dr. P.M. Kyprie. After her husband's death in 1952, Lou went back to school, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Public Health Nursing and later a Master of Arts degree from the University of Michigan. For 25 years she was employed by the Ann Arbor Public Schools and was a beloved school nurse, counselor, and second mom to thousands of students at Ann Arbor High and then at Huron High School. One of Lou's great loves was music, both classical and particularly jazz. This brought her to northern Michigan for the first time in 1959 as a staff member of the National Music Camp, now the Interlochen Center for the Arts. Sixteen years ago she followed her dreams and moved permanently to Traverse City, while continuing to travel widely. She was an active member of the Alumni Board at Interlochen, a docent at the Dennos Museum, a member of the Railroad Historical Society and the Traverse City Musicales, and an enthusiastic volunteer in many other local charities. She frequently performed as a jazz pianist at benefits and other festivities in the area, and was an avid and skilled bridge player as well. Most of all, Lou loved people. She had the great talent to see what was unique and "special" about everyone around her, and to nurture those qualities. Her boundless energy was an inspiration to all, and her wonderfully youthful sense of humor remained until the end.

Lou will be greatly missed by her children, Christine Potter of Bloomington, Ind., and Paul Kyprie of Whitmore Lake; brother, Dr. Donald Smith of Ann Arbor; niece, Carol Smith of Montreal, Quebec; nephews, Frazer Smith of Los Angeles, Dr. Scot Smith of Gainesville, Fla., Dr. Ian Smith of Carmel, Ind., and Edward Smith of Peterborough, Ontario; godchildren, Gay Robertson of Richmond Hill, Ontario, Robert Box of Toronto and Linda Fletcher of Barrie, Ontario; their families and the myriad friends she made the world over.  She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; and her brother, Douglas Smith of Ottawa, Ontario.

There will be no funeral service. A memorial celebration of Lou's life will be held Monday, Aug. 1, 2005, at 2 p.m., at the Milliken Auditorium of the Dennos Museum in Traverse City. Memorial contributions may be made to Munson Hospice Care or to the Dennos Museum. The Reynolds-Jonkhoff Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
