The Beaver Family of Puslinch Township
By Edna (Beaver) Robertson 1969

Peter Beaver (II) - 1st son of Peter Beaver

He was the eldest son of Peter I and was born in Alsace on Oct. 21, 1806. When he came to Puslinch in 1832, he was 26 years old and unmarried. Old records state that he was a Lutheran in religion, then Evangelical and a Liberal in politics. He was given lot 25 and he cleared 50 acres of his farm. Peter’s tombstone in Crown Cemetery, Morriston, states that he died Dec. 21, 1876, aged 70 years, 2 months. This old white marker is near the newer marker of the Nicholas Beaver family. It is interesting to note that Crown Cemetery is on lot 28. The first burial was in the early 1830’s but no records of burials were kept for more than 50 years. Each time a plot was required, it was chosen at random.

His first wife was Christina Yantz whose sister, Charlotte, married Peter’s brother, Nicholas. They had two daughters.

1. Christina
2. Magdalena, born June 3, 1834.

After the death of his first wife, he married Catherine Saloma Motz, who was born in Germany in 1814. She died in Gagetown, MI on Sept. 11, 1899 and is buried in Grant Cemetery. They had five children.

1. Christian, born Dec. 1841

2. Henry (Big Jim), born Feb. 10, 1850

3. Michael, born 1852

4. Louisa, born Sept 26th, ?

5. Frederick, born March 12, 1859

Death of a Preston Man

Preston, Ont., July 12 - August Ploethner, aged 78, and a highly respected citizen of Preston, went out to cut hay in his field near the G.T.R. tracks. He was missed early yesterday morning by his wife, and search was made for him. Emil Brown, a neighbor, found the missing man dead in a corner of the hay field lying over his scythe, with his hand still grasping its handle. Deceased had been troubled with weakness of the heart, and death was probably caused by over-exertion.

18 Military Funeral At Penrith

On Tuesday, for the second time in ten days, the soldiers of the Canadian Forestry Corps stationed at Penrith and Cliburn assembled at the Penrith Cemetery to pay their last tribute of respect to a dead comrade and on this occasion the remains of Private W. Van Vlack, of the Cliburn Company were interred alongside those of Sergt. Ploethner, who was killed a fortnight ago.

Private Van Vlack, who was only 19 years of age, came from Picton, Ontario. For some weeks he had been seriously ill and despite every care and attention at Fusehill War Hospital at Carlisle he passed away on Sunday. The news of his death became speedily known in Penrith and neighbourhood, and it created a painful impression, because the young soldier had made many friends. He had acted as motor driver for Major Walker, the officer commanding at Cliburn, and in that capacity was well known in Penrith, while the relations between his major and he were of a most intimate nature.

The funeral was hurriedly arranged for Tuesday afternoon, and was in every way impressive, it being the express wish of the commanding officer that full military honours should be paid. With this object in view Major Walker obtained the services of the band of the South Lancashire Regiment, which was in the town in connection with the rally of the members of the O.M.A..A..C. and the Women’s Land Army . The attendance of the general public was very large, and while no doubt many were attracted by the military nature of the ceremony, several people attended with a genuine desire to show their sympathy and respect. It had been again wisely decided to exclude the public from the Cemetery, and only the deceased’s comrades were at the graveside.

The coffin had been taken to the Drill Hall, and it was from there that the funeral procession started. The coffin, covered with the flag and surmounted with the soldier’s cap, was carried on the carriage used a fortnight ago. The firing party marched first, then followed the band, and then a detachment of about fifty men from Cliburn, under Lieut. And Adjutant Reeve, and about the same number from the Beacon, under Lieut. and Adjutant Glanfield. The service at the church and at the grave was conducted by the chaplain, Capt. Edminson.

With the death of Adam Monroe Ballard , which occurred at his home in this village on Thursday evening, August 25, 1927, Weyauwega again mourns the passing of one of the last of its fast disappearing Civil War veterans.

The deceased had been ill for about six weeks and death was caused by arteriosclerosis.
