Further during the Taylor's tenure, the first Carman Church, a Wesleyan Methodist, was built on the northeast corner of the farm. This church was demolished some time after the present-day Carman Church was built three kilometers to the east in1879. Ownership of the farm transferred to other Taylors as follows: Manfred C. Taylor in1902; Albert W. Taylor in 1908. Stirling P. and Edna E. Stewart bought the farm in 1950, and in 1976 it went to their son, Peter S. Stewart and his wife, Rosemary.

Henry McGillis had 2 sons - Fred McGillis and Beecher McGillis (my Grandfather). Beecher McGillis and his Dad, Henry, owned farms side by side on the Telephone road about one kilometer east of highway 30. This highway goes out of Brighton to Campbellford. Both farms almost went as far as the spring from which Brighton got her water. Mother was born to Beecher and his wife Emma Jane McGillis in 1895 on that farm. My Grandparents, Beecher and Emma Jane are buried in Mount Hope Cemetery in Brighton. Torrence died in Montana but it was too expensive to have his body brought back for burial but his son, Henry, had his name put on his tombstone in Waite's Cemetery which is about a kilometer west of where Everett Minaker was born at the south end of Waite's road. The tombstone is decorated with Irish Shamrocks." this text given to me by Norman Bastin after History Open House Feb 2013, due to connection to the Lighthouse.6,3
