The following biographical information was shared , March 1969:
Saw Mill And Hoop Factory, Kolapore, Ontario
By Rhoda J. McLellan Mar. 1969
The Kolapore sawmill and hoop and stave factory, owned and registered under the name Johnston, White and Company operated from 1890 to 1913. About twenty men were employed.

In winter, work began with the felling of the trees. Many beautiful big maples, rock elm, beech, birch and soft elm were cut. Two men on a crosscut saw felled the trees and the deeper the snow the higher the stumps were. The logs were hauled to the mill yard by horses and piled three logs high by men who were adept with cant-hooks. This was done when there was plenty of snow.

During the cutting season, April - July, hoops, staves and lumber were produced. The logs were moved to the gangway where machinery took them up into the sawmill. There, a large six foot circular saw reduced them to square timber, then cut into lumber. A quantity was cut, and by means of trolleys on the tramway, taken out and piled on either side of the long tramway for seasoning. When dried the lumber was placed on a wagon: rack and drawn by horses the eleven miles to Thornbury. The round trip required a whole day. The lumber was shipped by Grand Trunk railway to various places throughout the province. There was always a market.

The soft elm trees, from which the hoops and staves were cut, grew large, often 4 ft. in diameter, and many would cut three logs. These were hauled from the yard and taken into the mill where they were reduced to plank 9'x2". These were moved into vats, where they remained in live steam for thirty-six hours, before cutting into hoops., The steaming hot planks came in on rollers to the hoop cutting machine. This was a large heavy machine with a 9 ft. cutting blade, As the operator moved the plank forward, with the machine in action, the hoops dropped to metal arms on the other side. They then passed through several planing machines, the last of which was the pointer, from which they were placed in a boiling water vat before going through the coiler. There were ten hoops to a coil, the pointed end of the tenth was nailed, the coil was then released and it rolled out. These were taken by wagon loads to where they were piled in the best way to favour drying. When dry, they were tied with binder twine into bundles of five and stored in the cooperage stock shed. Hoops and staves moved out in time for the apple crop. The barrel headings were made in the Heathcote mill.

The last time I saw the old mill site (1968) there was nothing but some stones and masonry left where the boiler had been, the firm's office was gone, sawdust, which was spread evenly over quite an area, had returned to mother earth and looked like a meadow.

I fancy I smell the fresh cut sawdust and hear the whistle at 7 a.m. and again at 6 p.m.. Those were the days when men worked a ten hour day, 6 days a week. I think the men were paid $1.00 per day. Board was $10.00 per month. They were happy and spent the evening playing baseball or football and they did a great deal of bicycling. It was a quiet country life, our activities centred mostly around the church and school. The church is still being used for services. The school house is now used as a residence.26

         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.
