     Gladys was born on 22 July 1890 in Ontario, CanadaG.6,5,8 Gladys married Alfred Henry Sparling on 21 May 1921 in Thornbury, Collingwood Twp., Grey County, Ontario, CanadaG, he was a merchant clerk, and she was a clerk in the Bank of Toronto.4
     Other information from their marriage registration and/or news article about their wedding:
The registration listed the following official witnesses: James White and Catherine Rorke.4
She died on 23 November 1962 in Ontario, CanadaG, at age 72.8,6,9 Gladys Luella Johnston was buried in Thornbury-Clarksburg Union Cemetery, Thornbury, Collingwood Twp., Grey County, Ontario, CanadaG.10,11

     She, the brides second cousin, was listed as a witness to the marriage of Charles Henry Howard and Gertrude Viola Rear on 31 December 1924; I assume that G L Sparling was Gladys Sparling nee Johnston.12
     In the obituary of Susanah White who died 1 April 1935, her daughter, Mrs Harry Sparling (Gladys) of Thornbury, was listed as a survivor.13
     Gladys Luella Johnston was a bookkeeper.3 She was a survivor of her husband Alfred who died in 1951.14,15,16
     Gladys spent a year or two in Asquith, Saskatchewan, living with her Aunt Myrtle Moffat. Grandma Myrt's memory was slipping, and she needed a companion. Gladys often spoke of her grandchildren, Margy and John. In 1959 we took a road trip to the Rockies, and later took Gladys to Waskesiu with us.

By 1961 she had returned to Ontario.

When we received news of her death, my brother Lori thought she died with a "tack in her heart." He was about 5 or 6 at the time.17

Census Data

     Gladys Johnston appeared on the 1901 Canadian Census of Euphrasia Twp., Grey County, Ontario in the household of her parents, William Johnston and Susanah Johnston.5

The following newspaper article appeared in in the book Reflections of a Century compiled by the Eganville Leader (2002) in Eganville in Ontario originally published 4 September 1931 :
1931 Briefs: September 4 -- Barns and Threshing Mill Burn
On Wednesday morning on Mr. James Harrington's premises near Killaloe, just as threshing operations were finished, a fire was caused, and, in an instant, the whole interior of the barn was enveloped in flames. There was not even time to remove the mill. It was consumed, together with two barns, a cow byre, two sheds and all the feed, which included about 50 tons of hay. The loss is estimated at $3,000 or $4,000, which is partly covered by insurance. The mill destroyed was a new one owned by Messrs. Henry Kuehl and J.H. Zummach, and on which there was no insurance. The theory advanced as to the cause of the fire is that, at threshing, considerable gas generates and a spark, due to friction in some part of the running mill, will set everything ablaze in a moment.35

     Alexander was born on 9 January 1886 in Killaloe, Hagarty Twp., Renfrew County, Ontario, CanadaG, The 1911 census gives his age as 25 and year of birth as 1895, which is contradictory. The year of birth should probably be 1886. His birth registration shows 1886, but the Ancestry.com transcription shows 1887. However, the birth was clearly registered July 1, 1886. The 1921 census gives his age as 35, which is consistent with the 1911 census, and it gives an 1886 birth year.8,9,4,10,11 Alternatively, he was born on 9 January 1887 in Killaloe, Hagarty Twp., Renfrew County, Ontario, CanadaG, in the 1901 census.6 Alexander married Minnie Pauline Schmidt on 9 September 1908 in Toronto, York County, Ontario, CanadaG, according to Ontario Marriage Registration 003355.12,13,9,14,15,5,11,10 He died in 1960 in Ontario, CanadaG.8,10 Alexander Richard Zummach was buried in Hanover Cemetery, Hanover, Bentinck Twp., Grey County, Ontario, CanadaG.16,8,10

The affair took place at the home of her daughter, Mrs. August Summach, about 70 neighbors and members of her family attending. Games, contests and community singing filled an enjoyable program. The highlight of the evening was the triumphal entry of the birthday cake borne by A. Summach and aglow with its 74 candles all of which "Gran was privileged to extinguish with one puff."34


The following obituary appeared in an undated newspaper clipping after 5 February 1946 :
One of the best known and most esteemed residents of this community, Marie Rose Zummach, widow of the late William Ristow, passed away on Sunday morning, February 3rd, at the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Kuehl, with whom she had been living for the past five years. Taken suddenly ill four days previous, her death came as a shock to her family and friends.

Born at Osceola on February 22, 1862, she was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Carl Zummach. Her marriage to William Ristow in 1882 was performed by Rev. A. H. Helmerich in Old Hagarty church.

Apart from the twenty years lived in Kitchener and Saskatchewan following the death of her husband in 1933 (sic), her entire life was spent here. A kind, loving wife and mother, ever devoted to the welfare of the family, her quiet, unassuming manner endeared her to old and young.

Surviving are two sons and seven daughters: Charles Ristow of Kitchener, William Ristow and Mrs. R. F. Briscoe of Saskatoon, Mrs. T. Johnson of Vancouver, Mrs. August Summach of Asquith, Sask., Mrs. Samuel Henderson of Regina, Mrs. William Felhaber of Pembroke, Mrs. Fred Getz and Mrs. J. G. Kuehl of Killaloe.To them we extend our sincere sympathy.

There are thirty-five grandchildren and thirty-two great-grandchildren.

The funeral, largely attended, was held at 1.30 o'clock, p.m., on Tuesday to Calvary Baptist Church. Rev. C. R. Weisser officiated and in his eulogy paid fitting tribute to the memory of this beloved pioneer resident.

Census Data

     Frederick Gurt and Augusta appeared on the 1871 Canadian Census of Algona Twp., Renfrew County, Ontario, enumerated 2 April 1871. Frederick was enumerated as a Farmer and an Evangelical. Their children Frederick, Anna and William were listed as living with them. As were his parents, Gotlip Gurt and Elisabeth Gurt.5
     Frederick Ewit and Augusta appeared on the 1881 Canadian Census of Raglan & Radcliffe Twps., Renfrew County, Ontario, enumerated 4 April 1881. Frederick was enumerated as a W Meth(odist) and a Farmer. I believe this is the Jurt/Yourt family because: 1) all family names and estimated years of birth except Eliz/Louisa are correct, 2) Frederick and Augusta were born in Germany, 3) phonetically "Ewit" sounds right (English enumerators probably had problems with German names). Their children Frederick, Anne and Eliza were listed as living with them.4
     Frederick Yurt and Augusta appeared on the 1891 Canadian Census of Raglan & Radcliffe Twps., Renfrew County, Ontario, enumerated 6 April 1891. Frederick was enumerated as an Evangelical. Their children Frederick, Annie and Louisie were listed as living with them. As were their granddaughters (Annie's daughters), Emma Doerny and Rosanna Yurt. Note that Annie's daughter Esther is not enumerated which might support the 1891 birth date, if other primary documents did not give the 1890 date.6
     Augusta Yurt appeared on the 1901 Canadian Census of Renfrew County, Ontario, enumerated 31 March 1901. Augusta was listed as being head of her own household and an Evangelick (sic)in this 1901 census..2
