  • Note: 1915; Cod Field, Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "When a battalion was being transferred from Brighton to Campbellford they stopped in the field behind the present Carmen Ruttan residence for supper, which was provided by the Institute ladies. Lloyd Ames recalls that his father's watering trough was a blessing to the horses that pulled the mess wagons, also to the many tired feet. At this point there was an exchange of horses for the balance of the trip. John Goodfellow remembers, as a little boy, following the marchers as far as the 8th concession, when the teacher led her pupils back to Mount Olivet School.." From Pg 75 of As The Crow Flies by Mrs. Leona M. Austin, Mika Publishing, 1975
    ... and also ....
    "In 1915 a contingent of soldiers marched from Brighton to Campbellford where they entrained for Belleville. when they arrived inb Codrington at noon, they stopped in the field south of the Walter Ames home, west of Carman Ruttan's present residence. Here the soldiers removed their socks and boots and washed their feet in the watering trough. Tents were set up and the officeers at chicken, the soldiers ate ?? . Ames' kitchen table was used for the food. Codrington ladies supplied cakes and ?? for their desert. Fresh horses were supplied by Codrington men to drive the mess waggon on to Campbellford. As a small school boy, John Goodfellow remembers following behind with teacher Maggie Jordan and the other students, as they marched on to the train and the students returned to Mount Olivet." (from "The Tweedsmuir Histories of Codrington", copied from microfilm Reel #3, Metro Toronto Reference Library, Nov 2007)
    Note: These lines are hand written in spaces around pictures and newspaper articles about WWI. There is no signature but I assume they were written by Margaret (Atkinson) Goodfellow, who was much involved in working on "The Tweedsmuir Histories of Codrington", and was the wife of the John Goodfellow mentioned in the story.6
  • Note: circa 1920; Ames Home, Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; In the early 1920s Linnie (King) Ames was increasingly agitated by the memorial of William Henry King standing up at the south east corner of the Ames farm house. It had been there since it was erected by George King in the 1860s and was a constant reminder of the shame that the notorious murderer had imposed on his family. Linnie King was a niece of Dr. King, being the daughter of David Nelson King, a younger brother of William Herny King, who was the oldest of the King children. At some point, the presence of the stone became unbearable for Linnie so she asked her two younger sons, Lloyd and Kenneth, to get rid of it. The boys did the expedient thing. They pulled the stone out of the ground, dug a shallow trench, lay the stone down in it and covered it with sod. Out of sight, out of mind, might be the intent of this excersize. In any case, that is how the memorial of William Henry King ended up in the ground at the south east corner of the Buchanan house in the mid-1950s when septic work motivated Lloyd Ames to move it. In the process, Charles Buchanan took two pictures of it and they reburied the stone in the garden just a few feet away, where it was pulled up by the plough about a decade later. (Dan Buchanan)7

    Note: Lloyd Ames often told the story of how he bundled Bill Goodfellow in blankets and took him from the boarding house in Guelph on the train to Toronto and then, meeting his father and brother who brought sleighs to Brighton, slogged through a snow storm to get the unconscious Bill home where he survived after several difficult months to later become a respected member of parliament. It was a wonderful story and could have happened since Lloyd was on his way to Chicago Feb 23 and could have been at Guelph when Bill took sick.8

    Note: Wally Simmons is also mentioned as attending Linnie's funeral. Russell Jaques told me (Dan Buchanan) that Wally had been an orphan who came to live with the Ames family when he was quite young. He thought very highly of Linnie Ames who was his surrogate mother for so many years. Apparently Wally Simmons became very successful in the U.S., returning to visit Codrington in a big car and fancy clothes.6

  • Note: circa 1920; Ames Home, Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; In the early 1920s Linnie (King) Ames was increasingly agitated by the memorial of William Henry King standing up at the south east corner of the Ames farm house. It had been there since it was erected by George King in the 1860s and was a constant reminder of the shame that the notorious murderer had imposed on his family. Linnie King was a niece of Dr. King, being the daughter of David Nelson King, a younger brother of William Herny King, who was the oldest of the King children. At some point, the presence of the stone became unbearable for Linnie so she asked her two younger sons, Lloyd and Kenneth, to get rid of it. The boys did the expedient thing. They pulled the stone out of the ground, dug a shallow trench, lay the stone down in it and covered it with sod. Out of sight, out of mind, might be the intent of this exersize. In any case, that is how the memorial of William Henry King ended up in the ground at the south east corner of the Buchanan house in the mid-1950s when septic work motivated Lloyd Ames to move it. In the process, Charles Buchanan took two pictures of it and they reburied the stone in the garden just a few feet away, where it was pulled up by the plough about a decade later. (Dan Buchanan)13
