     Narrative by George CLARE White in March, 1979.

My father was a lumberman all his life. He was also an excellent machinist and had good understanding of steel. One of his avocations was "boss-man" at many barn raisings on the Blue Mountain and in the Beaver Valley. He was a meticulous bookkeeper. He was an avid speckled trout fisherman and hunter of deer and bear. His party hunted each fall near Point au Baril, Parry Sound District, travelling by boat between there and Thornbury.

Dad went to Clarksburg about 1887 (23 years old) as manager of the planing mill there and started a hoop (for apple barrels) business in partnership with a brother-in-law, William F. Johnston. They moved the business to Kolapore in 1889 and started manufacturing in 1890. About the same time they purchased a sawmill from Peter Stoutenburg and had a complete operation - logging, sawmill and hoop stave and headings factory. (Peter Stoutenburq is the one who nicknamed me Teddy Bush Bear). Mother and Father were married in 1890 and lived in one of the two homes on the property. My four sisters, three brothers and I were born in that home. Both houses are occupied and look much the same after almost 90 years. The only trace of the business is one small foundation.

In 1891, another brother-in-law, John Johnston (brothers married "White" sisters) joined the firm of Johnston, White & Co. In 1895 Uncle Will became a silent partner and in 1903 sold his one-third interest to Dad. Rhoda Johnston McLellan recorded in January, 1969 as follows:

"The soft elm trees of which the hoops were made grew to be very large, 5 to 6 feet in diameter and many of them would cut 3 l2ft. 1ogs.'-- "soft elm logs were cut into planks 9ft. long, 2 inches thick and put into vats of live steam for 36 hours -- moved to the cutting machine. This was a big heavy machine with superstructure holding a great knife 9ft. long which swung slightly from. R, to L, etc." "There was a lot of timber cut such as maple, hemlock, soft elm, rock elm, beach and birch. Uncle Tom (T. B. White) was always the sawyer." The lumber, etc. was all teamed 11 miles down the Mountain to Thornbury. That is how I got to Thornbury when we moved. Someone put 8~year old me on a passing lumber wagon. No.1 hard maple lumber was sold for as low as $7.00 per thousand board feet, loaded on railroad cars at Thornbury. The firm's most profitable year produced a profit of about $3,000.00 after a salary of $1,200.00 each to Uncle John and Dad.

The business was sold in 1912 (?) and the partnership dissolved. One of the assets was a 50% leasehold interest in 10 square miles of virgin timber in central southern British Columbia. Dad had a 2/3rds interest. The leases were let lapse many years later. Dad's share of the annual timber dues was at least doub1e his income.

The Johnston's moved to Saskatchewan and we to Parry Sound in 1912-13. Mother was in hospital due to a massive paralytic stroke -- her whole left side. Muriel took her place and taught music as well. After six years, Marion took over and continued until her marriage. Both did far more than their share for Dad and their three brothers.

Dad continued lumbering in Parry Sound and he and my brother Leslie later acquired a wood turning business - Parry Sound Wood Turners Limited. Leslie's widow Vera and their son Robert carry on the business.

         It becomes our painful duty this week to record the demise of Mrs. John Johnston of Kolapore, after an illness of only a few days. She was the daughter of the late T. B. White, whose sudden death a few years ago startled the whole community and filled it with regret.
         Mrs. John Johnston was a woman of bright and cheerful disposition, tireless energy and complete forgetfulness of self when the sick were to be nursed or a friend needed her assistance. Many a sick room in the vicinity of her home will in the future ,miss her presence and ministering care. By her genial disposition she endeared herself to all who had the privilege of her acquaintance. Having had a great deal of sickness in her own family, it is no doubt greatly due to her own tireless nursing that she has been able, so far, to have kept the family circle complete.
         There survive her, her mother, Mrs. T. B White of Collingwood, three sisters-Miss Myrtle White of Collingwood, Mrs. Wm. Johnston of Thornbury, and Mrs. Clifford Sine of Cobden;also five brothers-Messrs. T. B. White of Kolapore, George P. White of Idaho, Jas. L. White of Duncan, E. F. White of Cincinnati, Ohio, Robert H. White of Napinka, Man. and Bert White of Rochester, N.Y. She leaves, besides her sorrowing husband, 5 children,-Misses Sophia, Ethel, Mabel and Rhoda and Master Rob.
         To the bereaved ones, we, in common with the whole community, extend our most sincere sympathy.. Hereinafter cited as Thornbury Herald and Grey Report.
