     Her name was also recorded as Martha H White.29,23 She immigrated in 1847 USA to Canada.10
     


According to E. Frank White's manuscript about his family, his mother Martha and father, Thomas B White travelled by boat across the Great Lakes from Collingwood, ON to Chicago, IL. They "were away some weeks visiting a lot of Mother's relatives around Winnebago, Rockford, and Independence, Illinois. They both enjoyed the trip very much and Mother must have gathered specimens of fossils every place she went, for she brought many home with her. They were there at the time of the funeral of President James A. Garfield and attended one of the funerals, many of which were held throught the country." President Garfield died Sept 19, 1881 after being shot on July 2 of that year.30


     Martha White was recorded as mother of the bride at the marriage of Clifford Sine and Annie White on 7 August 1895.31
     Martha Smith White was recorded as the mother of the bridegroom at the marriage of Edward Francis White and Elizabeth Lee Burns on 1 January 1901.32
     In the obituary of Frances Elizabeth White who died 21 February 1904, Frances's mother, Mrs T B White was listed as a survivor.33

Martha White is referenced in my notes regarding Helen Elizabeth White

After Frank White's wife, Elizabeth died in May 1906, Myrtle White and her mother, Martha White moved to Cincinnati to live with Frank. Myrt helped look after Helen who was about 3 1/2 years old until about 1908 when she moved to Saskatchewan where she met and later married Alfred Moffat. Frank remarried in 1909. I have a photo album from Aunt Janet with many pictures from this Cincinnati time period. Martha remained in Cincinnati until her death in 1919.34


     Mrs T B White received a say 1910 postcard taken:
Bert sent a novelty wooden postcard to his mother sometime between 1906 and her death in 1919. It read:

Dear Mother
Had a card from Tom yesterday from Nelson, B.C. He said George was spending a day or two with him. All well. Had these little pictures taken last night; Love B W
(I assume this is Bert White and not his brother Bob White)

Addressed to:
Mrs. T. B. White
785 Summit Ave
Cincinnati, Ohio
Price Hill

Note: this wooden postcard was patented in 1906 (patent 816,870.)35

The following obituary appeared in the newspaper the Cincinnati Enquirer published in Cincinnati, Ohio 14 July 1919:
White -- Martha White (nee Smith) passed away peacefully Sunday morning at the residence of her son, E. F. White, 901 Chateau av., Price Hill, Cincinnati, Ohio, in her 84th year. Interment at Thornbury, Ontario, Canada, Wednesday. [Toronto papers please copy]28




The following obituary appeared in the newspaper the Review Herald published in Thornbury, Ontario 24 July 1919:
MRS. MARTHA WHITE
There died at Cincinnati, Ohio, on Sunday morning, July 13, 1919 Mrs. Martha White, nee Smith, relict of the late Thomas B. White. With the exception two years, the past thirteen years have been spent at the home of her son Frank, within a few miles of her birthplace. Mrs. White was eighty-four years of age last January and passed away as her physician described it "like the falling of a leaf." She was the last of the older generation of a family that has had much to do with life in the Beaver Valley since the very early days of settlement. In 1844, William, Thomas B., Samuel White, their sister Eliza and her husband, Edward Atkins, sailed from Lincolnshire, England, and in the fall of 1847, moved in and settled on lots 18 and 19 Tenth Concession of Collingwood Township. After clearing seven acres and building a house and a barn, Thomas B. rented the farm to William Vamphlew, a brother-in-law, and worked at the carpentry. In 1854, he was married to Martha Smith, daughter of an early settler at Ravenna. (Mrs. White often recalled early times when the wild pigeons were their only meat supplies.) Two or three years later they moved to Collingwood town. Mr. White was active in school and municipal affairs and for one year he was a member of the town council. He was also active in the volunteer fire department and for some years was chairman of the School Board.

In February, 1870, the family, consisting of the father and mother, three girls and three boys, moved up to the farm, the south half of Lot 19, Tenth Concession. In going up the Tenth Line, when they came in sight of the old log schoolhouse, one of the boys cried when he was told that was the school he would have to attend. Mr. White told him to never mind, that he would see that they soon had a better school house. He at once interested himself in school affairs and was chair man of the Board of Trustees that within two years put up the present building at S. S. #5. He constantly interested himself in school affairs.

Of the family of twelve children, the ten who grew up received their public school education at this school. It was there that Mr. White's life would come to an end suddenly while making a speech there in 1895. The schoolhouse may be considered a monument to Thomas B. as the brick church is a monument to his brother William.

Mrs. White's life was of necessity devoted to her children and home. The family home "Arch Hill" was well known for it's beautiful flower garden and of late years her garden in Cincinnati had many flowers brought from the old home in Beaver Valley.

Nine children survive: Mrs. W. F. Johnston, Thornbury; George P. , Wallace, Idaho; James L. , Heathcote; Thomas B. , Parry Sound; Mrs. Clifford Sine, Gananoque; Edward F. and Herbert H. , Cincinnati, Ohio; Robert Henry, Frobisher, Saskatchewan; and Mrs. Al Moffat Frobisher, Saskatchewan.

Funeral services were conducted at the home of her daughter, Mrs. William Johnston, by Rev. S. D. Jamieson. The four sons, James L. , Thomas B. , Herbert H. , and Edward F. , were all pallbearers. She was buried Wednesday, July 16, at the Union Cemetery, beside her late husband, in a grave strewn with wild ferns, flowers and cedar boughs, of which she was a great lover.26


Martha Smith was listed as predeceased in the obituary of Martha Ann Jane White who died 18 March 1949.36,37

     In Lester's birth registration, filed June 1, 1912, William gave their wedding date as April 21, 1907 in Eganville. Was he backdating the marriage to accomodate the age of Elaine, or was he just a typical male who couldn't remember his wedding date?39
     In 1918, the family moved to the Avondale district south of Asquith, Saskatchewan. Their farm was just south of the Pilgrim farm. In 1920, they bought the Fry farm, south of the Avondale school.

     The following newspaper article appeared in the in Renfrew, Ontario Renfrew Mercury 13 December 1928 :
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Tank of Eganville returned home recently after a three months' sojourn at the home of their daughter, Mrs. Wm. Zummach of Delisle, Sask. Mr. Zummach is a farmer in that district and cultivates a half-section. His wheat crop this season was about 4,000 bushels. He had other grains as well, says The Leader.42

     William Summach and family attended the Rosenthal School Pals Reunion.
On Dominion Day (July 1) in 1931, August and Minnie Summach hosted a reunion of local families in which at least one of the parents had attended Rosenthal school in Renfrew County, Ontario. A photographer from Saskatoon took a panoramic photograph of about 14 families and other guests.43,44

Asquith Couple Have Exciting Experience
Bullet from Rifle Misses Wife and Lodges in Husband's Coat; Shooter Captured
(Special Despatch in the Free Press)
Saskatoon, Sask., Dec. 13.

A. Summach of Asquith, reports the narrow escape of his wife and himself from death today, near Dunfermline. He says a youth of 17 fired a shot which passed beneath Mrs. Summach's chin and lodged in his coat, evidently spent. Mrs. Summach saw the boy fire the shot. Giving chase, Mr. Summach caught the lad under a verandah of a nearby house. The boy declared he was shooting at a rabbit, and expressed sorrow for the affair. Not satisfied with this, Mr. Summach took the lad to his home where the parents promised that the boy would not again take a rifle in his hands for two years.29

The following biographical information was published in in Saskatchewan Diamond Jubilee 1965 Edition -- Asquith History, 1965:
Trip from Ontario Took Eleven Days
by A. Summach
It took my brother, Fred, and me 11 days and nights to come from Killaloe, Ontario to Asquith by freight. Our horses got very tired standing. We had our bunk on the lumber at the other end of the car, and I well remember one night when we were sidetracked, one of the horses fell in its sleep and I awoke suddenly and jumped up so quickly that I nearly knocked myself (out) by hitting my head on the top of the box car. We had barrels in the car for watering the stock and, when we would come to water along the track, the freight would stop and let us fill our barrels.

We stopped at Saskatoon and were told that we wouldn't get out to Asquith for a week, so I paid an extra $48 to have a locomotive run us out to Asquith, as that was as far as the line had been built by 1907. Gus Picketts was the first man that we met when we landed at Asquith, as he was looking for business for his livery barn.

In the spring of 1906, I came to Regina to work. I had filed on a homestead at Bethune but, when I went to see it, I found that it was very stoney (sic.) I had had all the stone-picking that I wanted in Ontario so I decided to cancel it.

I worked north of Regina and, in the fall, went back to Ontario.

Brother Fred came out in 1907 to see the country, as the old saying was, "Go west, young man." In the fall, he returned to Ontario and, between the two of us, we convinced our mother to sell the farm down there. She loaned us the money to move out here and start farming in the spring of 1908.

We brought out two carloads of settlers' effects which contained five cows, four horses, and enough lumber for a small house.

We batched during the winter for four years, and our dear mother cooked for us during the summer. The main diet for the first winter was cornmeal.

After making one payment on a binder in the fall of 1908, we had the sum of 10 cents in cash left. The cows were the means of supplying us with groceries, as I used to churn and sell butter to Sandy Currie for 15 cents a pound.

Then I got married and moved west one mile to Jack Beels' homestead, which I purchased. We lived there for four years, then moved back a mile east where we purchased a half section from Kenneth and Justin Cummings. We lived there for 10 years and then moved to the present home farm in 1926.

From then on I began to expand, buying more land. The first land was purchased at $20 an acre -- CPR land -- and from there I went as high as $60 an acre -- the top price I had paid.

Could This Happen Again

We hear a lot of complaints today about hard times when wheat is selling at $1.68 net to the farmer, but I remember the year of 1912 when the harvest was late and the wheat froze.

William Rousell told me that he shipped a carload of wheat to Winnipeg. After threshing it out of the snow, they had to pry it out of the car at Fort William. It didn't pay for the freight.

The railroad company sent him a bill for the balance of the freight. He answered and told them that he had no money, but that he would send then a carload of wheat.

We talk about the hungry thirties -- I shipped five carloads of No.1 hard wheat from Juniata and it netted me 19 cents a bushel.

William Pilgrim loaded a carload at Asquith that year. Harvey, my son, was buying track wheat for James Richardson and Sons, and Mr. Pilgrim received 13 cents a bushel of an advance. It graded "smutty". He paid 8 a bushel of threshing and paid Harvey 3 cents a bushel to haul it and put it in the car, when this grade came down to 13 cents a bushel they sold him out. That left Mr. Pilgrim 2 cents net after paying for threshing and hauling.23

     In the obituary of Harvey Edward Summach who died 10 January 1967, his grandfather, August Summach of Saskatoon, SK, was listed as a survivor.42
     In the obituary of Frederick Summach who died 19 January 1972, Frederick's brother, August Summach was listed as a survivor.43
     The following account of the funeral of August Summach appeared in the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Saskatoon StarPhoenix 26 November 1973 :
