I have a copy of the funeral notice for my grandmother and they have her last name as Cassels, plus, I have a document from the family that identifies her last name as Cassels. I was told that she came to Canada from England as an orphan, however, I am not sure how reliable that information is. - e-mail from Gary Switzer

I HAVE BEEN DOING GENEALOGY FOR THE FAMILY. A WHILE BACK, IN CALLING UP THE OLD LADIES HOME IN SCHENECTADY, N.Y. TO ENQUIRE ABOUT A GREAT G`MOTHER OF MY HUSBAND THEY SURPRISED ME BY HAVING HER PARENTS LISTED. HER NAME WAS ELIZABETH NEVILLE HOLLIDAY; B.1848 AND HAD COME FROM PERTH AREA (ONT. CANADA).
SHE DIED IN 1939 AND WE HAVE A PICTURE OF HER. AT ONE TIME SHE HAD BEEN A COOK IN A LUMBER CAMP in Minnisota. THE CLERK THERE AT THE HOME HAD HER PARENTS LISTED!
THEY WERE HESTER NEVILLE, AND BENJAMIN SWITZER. THIS SEEMS VERY MUCH LIKE THE COUPLE YOU HAVE LISTED, BUT THEIR ONLY CHILD SEEMED TO BE SARAH ANN WHO WAS BORN 2 YEARS LATER. I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS. - from a Holliday researcher

I remember my Grandmother Anton...she was a grumpty old woman and hated the color shartroose green. She was adimate about not ever seeing that color. She was really mean to Stan too. She wasn't very nice to me or my brother but when we went to visit her, she was climbing in years and was not in the best of health. I remember she always lived in Yucca Valley. My Grandmother Marion was the most amaziing woman. She had bi polar disorder. I never knew it. But she was a GREAT teacher at Moder Dae High School in Santa Ana and I believe helped found the American Federation of Teachers. She was a very strong woman in leadership. I would never have known she suffered with a mental illness...which she passed through her son to me......and I to my son. :( But we all are surviving. My Grandfather, Wayne, loved to fly planes. He was always so quiet, it seemed weird that he would be married to mygrandmother. I know that my grandparents had some hard times and their family was not always together. I know I used to hear my Grandmother talk about an Allen all the time...but I never knew who it was. That's about all I can tell you for now unless you want more recent family history. - from a descendent of Verna.

In April, 1843 John set sail for Canada, with his wife, 2 daughters and 5 sons. John served a 7 year apprenticeship in weaving. It is said that he was an artist in weaving fine tablecloths in the most beautiful designs. When John came to Mitchell Road, Blanshard, in June, 1843, the settlers built walls of their shanties with logs, stuffing the cracks with moss, the roofs where made of split
basswood logs, hollowed into troughs by an axe. Chimneys where built of sticks plastered with mud and straw trampled into the mortar by oxen. Large flat stones where put at the bottom of the fireplace. Bread was baked in large iron pots with 3 legs and iron covers. Coals where put on top of the covers and under the pots on the hearth and the pots where frequently turned toward the fire to bake evenly. Bread and biscuits baked in these primitive ovens were equal to any made nowadays. Meat was usually boiled. There was an abundance of potatoes, cowcabbage, lamb's quarters, wild plums, currants and grapes. The only sugar obtainable was maple sugar. Their pens where made from the quills from wild birds, there being no geese or turkeys. Throughout the hardships the people where quite happy. They had preaching services every 3 weeks in their homes. The women wore their aprons and sun bonnets to Church, and everyone brought their babies. They soon built a church out of logs and slabs, the people where hospitable and anyone travelling through the Country for flour or provisions would stay where night overtook them. Sometimes John's floor would be almost covered with men lying with their feet to the fire. In 1928, Milton Switzer, a grandson was living on the original Switzer Homestead. In 1928, there were 500 descendents of John Switzer living. John died at the home of his son Adam, at Mitchell Road, Blanshard. Agnes died at the home of her son Henry ,at Mitchel Road, Blanshard. John was an Anglican, but was not bigoted, as the Methodists frequently held services in his home. He was always on the best of terms with his Catholic neighbours and had great respect for the Bible and the Sabbath.

Jacob Miller arrived in Camden Valley, New York, along with his brothers Garret and Peter, in 1774. Jacob's brother, Peter, had petitioned for extra acreage over and above the 100 acres alloted him, for his brothers. When this was turned down he left to the nearby Shermerhorn Patent and Jacob returned to New York City. Jacob had attained the position of a wealthy merchant in New York by 1775. Jacob and his wife Catherine eventually settled in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and developed a lucrative business exporting lumber to the West Indies. Although Jacob became an Anglican, he never lost interest in the Methodists and in 1817, he assisted a nephew, Georg Miller, a Methodist Preacher, to come to Canada from Ireland.

JAMES COULTER
James Coulter was b. in that portion of the old town of Cambridge now included in the town of Jackson, June 24, 1799, and is the son of George and grandson of James Coulter. His grandfather came from the north of Ireland, and was the first settler on the farm (then a wilderness) adjoining the present Coulter homestead on the north, where George Coulter was born and reared his family, and where James was also born and resided until the age of 26 year. He had been in no haste to get married until he could first secure a situation enabling him to assume the responsibilities of a farm for himself; and having attained that object, he married his cousin, Nancy Coulter, a discreet and comely farmer's daughter, who has fulfilled Solomon's ideal of a wife, in "managing well the affairs of her household, and eating not the bread of idlemess." Her mother's name was Nancy Ferguson, born in Scotland, and came to this country with her parents and 2 brothers, among the early settlers of Washington Co. She married a brother of Mr. Coulter's father, and her daughter Nancy married James Coulter, the subject of this biography, on the 18th of January 1826. For a partial payment on the new farm, upon which Mr. Coulter was about to commence his married life, his father gave him $1,000, and other personals, in the way of an outfit. He purchased one hundred acres for $20 an acre, on which he settled and lived until 1836. At the end of this decade he had paid for his place & saved a surplus of $1600 to pay down on his next farm, -- the place where he now resides, -- which he purchased and moved upon in the year 1836. It is only summing up and epitomizing a long life of remarkable energy, diligence, and success, in a pursuit exclusively agricultural, to say that he has grown "rich in children and lands," as did the patriarch Jacob.
Mr. & Mrs. Coulter have had 11 children, -- 6 sons and 5 daughters. One son died in infancy, and they lost 3 little girls with scarlet fever, who died within 2 weeks of each other. Towards his children, Mr. Coulter has been munificent in his liberality, aiding all his sons except the youngest, who still resides at home (and will probably continue to do, as he is married and will be a necessary stay of his parents in their old age), in getting established upon their respective farms in the sum of $10,000 each. Besides these munificent gifts to his children, Mr. Coulter gave liberally to build the Rutland and Washington railroad through this county, and also the Johnsonville and Greenwich railroad. He has always been a Republican, and while he has been too busy a man to accept or desire office, he has never been parsimonious in matters pertaining to home or the public welfare. They have one married daughter residing at Union village -- Cornelia, wife of James Thompson. Mr. and Mrs. Coulter are members of the United Presbyterian church at Coila, in the town of Jackson, where Rev. Dr. Bullions officiated as pastor for over 50 years, of which church Mr. Coulter has held for many years the office of trustee.

COULTER, James (son of George), b. 1799, d. 1885, m. Nancy. Eleven ch. James was known as "Jackson Jimmy". He settled on the first farm on what is now known as Rouse's Road just off County Road 62 to Battenville. Here he becamse one of the most successful farmers in the area. At one point, farmland held by the Coulter sons continued for over two miles along the highway by the original homestead. Coulters were so prominent in Jackson that at one point mail from the State Education Department was addressed to "The Coulter District -- District No. 2 -- Town of Jackson."

Luke Michael Switzer, was raised in the village of Pefferlaw, Georgina Township, Ontario, Canada, where he received a grade 7 education in a one room school situated about one mile north of the village. It was customary to leave school at twelve years of age and learn an apprenticeship. He was apprenticed with his father in the boot and shoe making trade where he learned to make boots and shoes by hand without the use of any machinery. Although his education was limited by to-day's standards, it was average or above average for that time. He enjoyed reading and had an abiding interest in history. He had considrable ability in mental arithmetic and could solve simple equations in his head.

He was a good tradesman and employed up to six men making boots and shoes until 1914 when World War I cut off the supply of French Kip leather necessary for waterproof boots. Also at this time machine made boots and rubber (gum) boots took over the market-for farm work boots. He then operated a boot and shoe store and repair business until his health failed in 1929.

He had a patent on the design for leather tops for rubber bottom bush boots. These he continued to make along with sheep-skin liners for these boots until his patent expired and the large manufacturers copied his design.

As a young man he went West to the Yorkton area where his brother Tobias had settled. After a few years he returned to the East and opened a boot and shoe business with his younger brother, Amos, in Sutton West, Ontario. After Amos' death, he carried on the business with his wife, Susannah Ellen (Nellie) Taylor. The combination, of her business ability and his skill as a tradesman, plus their warm personalities, built a successful family business.

He was a quiet man who seldom lost his temper or composure. If he did, it was in righteous indignation over some principle that he considered wrong. He was a staunch Protestant who had been raised a Methodist. He was was a sociable person and had few if any enemies. He belonged to the Orange Order, the Black Knights and was a Third Degree Mason. He was a Tory
in politics. Although he never joined the church until late in life and then only to please his wife, he attended regularly and was the treasurer of the small Methodist Congregation as long as he had good health.
