6 "Agnes's son was Donald Oliver - he lived in Montreal and in those days thought he was God's gift to women. One time when we were at the cottage he asked if I would go to a dance across the lake with him. He came down the dock in his sharp clothes to impress the natives on the other side. He helped me in to the canoe and when he stepped in he missed and came up spluttering to great shouts from the people on the dock. He decided that he would look after Beth - which he did and everyone was grateful. When she died she left her considerable estate to Donald as she had no children."

7 "Aunt Hazel announced to everyone that she was born on the 8th hour of the 8th day of the 8th month in 1888 and she wanted a big party. So everyone in Athelstan and all of the relatives were invited. The town got together and set it up behind the Saunder's home. Bill was M.C. and was very funny. It was a warm sunny day and a great celebration. No one knew the hour but everyone knew that she was born in 1889." Source: Eleanor Blackwood [Hall] SAUNDERS, Lydia Hazel (I453)
8 "In 1805, James Fisher together with his two sons, Willaim and David, moved to St. Mary's Dist. Here they bought a very large tract of land extending from Stopper Rock to the Falls on the St. Mary's River and it included what is now the town of Sherbrooke. Later they found a mill site more to their liking 16 miles further upriver, at what is known as Fisher's Mills" MacLean and Fisher Family Ancestors Descendants and Related Families 2001 FISHER, David (I370)
9 "On March 3, 1910 Agnes Craik Blackwood married a dentist Alfred Hunter Oliver in Montreal, Quebec. They bought a suite in downtown Montreal (Cote des Neiges) on a second floor and set up one half as living quarters and the room facing the street as an office for the dental practice. Soon he placed a sign in the window "Dr. Oliver - painless dentist". People flocked to him and when he had sufficient money they would close the office and travel until their resources were low. On their return he would place his sign in the window. They followed this routine for a few years.
I visited them in 1945 at the end of the war. In the evening instead of a snack Agnes would set the table and serve a full course meal. At that time Dr. Oliver was so heavy that he put on a support before getting out of bed.
While I was there he checked my teeth and I remember having three cavities. Agnes placed a mask over my face and I counted while she delivered N2O - nitrous oxide. Her only training was reading manuals - but during his practice they had no adverse reactions. I had no recollection of anything when they finished - it was a delightful session in a dentist chair.
Dr. Oliver was not well at that time (very obese forever) and he died in 1950."

William McKeen Esquire of Truro, the Bearer hereof who has for many years resided within the District of Colchester under the established character of an honest and industrious man, has been lately deprived of his eldest son, his chief support, who has during the last season (impressed) on board His Majesty's Ship Cleopatra. The only remaining support for the Bearer and an aged and infirm wife, with a (helpless) family, were a Saw Mill and Grist Mill in Truro which were both unfortunately destroyed by fire on the (30th) day of October last. By the reason of the loss of his son's assistance and the unfortunate destruction of his Mills, he is reluctantly obliged to (apply) (?) this last recourse to the (friends) of Humanity.

David had four sons, all stone masons, William, Andrew, David and Robert, who all left Greenock for Canada in 1819. The family lived at Crichton Castle, a quarry town near Edinburgh.
There is also information about a son, John, for whom there appears to be no additional information. It is assumed that he remained in Scotland, as is likely also true for his sister Agnes.

Lincoln Township-- Saunders, James A.-- Section 33, P.O. Deep River. His ancestors, on both sides, were, remotely, from Scotland, but settled many years ago near Belfast, Ireland. They were of the class of people known as the "Scotch Presbyterian Descendants." His father, Robert Saunders, was born August 23, 1806, near Belfast, Ireland, where he was raised and educated, followed his trade as weaver, and married. He immigrated with his wife and two children to Canada in 1840; where, for the next thirteen years, he farmed in summer and worked at his trade during the winter. He then moved to Morrow county, Ohio, where he farmed until the spring of 1869, when he immigrated to this county; his wife having died February 14, 1869, he came out alone. He is now making his home with his son James, with whom he has lived ever since the death of his wife. The subject of this sketch was born September 10, 1841 in Beauharnais, Lower Canada. When twelve years old he moved with his father to Ohio, where he was raised on a farm and educated. He preceded his father to this county one year, and engaged in the mercantile business at Dresden with Mr. Jesse Axtell, at which he continued for three years. He then sold out to his partner and bought his present place. Mr. Saunders married in Dresden, December 22, 1870, Miss Martha E. Sanders, daughter of George E. Sanders. She was born September 13, 1850, in Harrison county, Ohio. This lady bore him: Elmer Warren (Born November 27, 1872; died May 12, 1877). He re-married in Montezuma, November 27, 1878, Mrs. C. P. Churchill, whose maiden name was Mary Adell; she was born in Delaware county, Ohio, December 3, 1846. She has one child by her first husband: William Lorain (born November 24, 1872). The fruit of this union is one child: Josie Alma (born July 10, 1880). Mr. Saunders owns 320 acres of excellent farming land, besides five acres of timber. His farm is in good condition, well stocked and unembarrassed. He is at present entering into preparations for extensive sheep raising. He is a member of the Board of County Supervisors, and takes an active interest in local and general politics. He is very popular, and a gentleman of remarkable force of character and broad influence.

LYON, MARTHA J. Oct 15, 1916, wife of H. H. Lyon, 1340 E. 72nd Street. Born in Quebec, Canada. Funeral on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 3 PM & burial at Oakwood Cemetery.
It is our melancholy duty to chronicle the death of Mrs. H. H. LYON, who with her husband, has been for many years a resident of the Southern district of Chicago, residing at 1349 East 72nd Street. She was born in Franklin Centre, Province of Quebec, Canada, on January 6, 1848, the daughter of Colonel ALEXANDER and Mrs. BLACKWOOD. In 1870 she went to Boston, Mass., for the purpose of being trained as a nurse and entered the Boston City Hospital from which she graduated in 1876, in the first class of trained nurses prepared in that institution. Afterward she became the matron of a private hospital in the city where she remained for three years. While there she met Dr. H. H. LYON a Scotch physician from Edinburgh, Scotland, whom she afterward married previous to her coming with him to Chicago. That city has since been the center of her many and varied activities, and wherever she has gone with her husband she has made many and loyal friends by her kindly disposition and ever ready and unselfish helpfulness. In all the various places where they have resided for a time she was always identified with the religious and social work of the community in which she took an active part and through which she contributed of her best towards the social and moral betterment of humanity. Many of her friends in Unionville will remember how kindly and loyal she was in her friendship and how interested in everything which made for the common good. In Chicago she was for many years a member of the Arche Club and belonged to the Prince of Wales Chapter of the Daughters of the British Empire. She was always interested and prominent in her varied church and social activities, until her health failed about one year ago.
During her weakness and sickness she manifested those qualities of patience and submission which might be expected from a true and sincere Christian. About two weeks ago she was stricken with paralysis and three days before her death pneumonia developed and mercifully ended her sufferings. She was laid away in her last resting place in Oakwood Cemetery on Tuesday, the 17th, the funeral service being conducted by Rev. Dr. Jardine of this city. The members of the Presbyterian church of which Dr. Jardine was the pastor when Dr. & Mrs. Lyon resided here, extended to the bereaved husband their kindly sympathy in this hour of sorrow.
