Notes for JAMES FORSYTH:

FORSEY

James, son James & Mary, b Sept 2, 1738

Source: Barbour Records - Middletown, Middlesex, CT

James Forsyth, supported the British during the American Revolution. Early in the Revolution he and his family endeavoured to reach Niagara but were taken prisoners by the Indians. British soldiers, attacked the Indian camp in the night and the captives were set free. As a United Empire Loyalist he was granted 200 acres of land in Niagara where he built his first home in Canada on the Portage Road at the site now described as No. 2218 (6218) Main Street, Niagara Falls, and afterwards made it a public house. This was the place frequently referred to in the period of the war of 1812-14 as "Forsyth's." It was army "H.Q." on several occasions. During the Navy Island campaign, 1838, Sir Allan McNab occupied it; Lord Durham stayed there; James Buchanan, long British consul in New York, owned it; Lord Elgin occupied it for a time; at last it was burned.

Loyalist List:

Forsyth, James.... Home District, Niagara stamped book, wife 4 children, P.L. 1786; (same name East District, Non-Commissioned Officer, K.R.R.N.Y. Corporal, P.L.2d, 1786)

The list of families settled as farmers in 1783 includes James Forsyth aged 44, Unis 38, Daniel 11, William 9, John 2 and Sarah 5. This would make Unis' birthdate 1745 .

NOTES:

In August of 1780, James Secord, Sampson Lutes, Michael Showers and Isaac Dolson moved to the west bank of the Niagara River and settled on lands the British had acquired from the Mississauga Indians.

Other families who soon followed were the Fields, Depues (Depews) and the Phelps.

In 1782, the first settlers to Niagara Falls were Phillip Bender along with his wife and three children and Thomas McMicken (Mickmicking) along with his mother, sister, two children and a negro slave.

In 1783, eight more families settled along the west bank. They included John Reilly, John Coon, Peter Thompson, John Burtch, James Forsyth, John Chisholm, Francis Ellesworth and Thomas Millard.

In 1785, other early settlers included James Park, John McGill, Archibald Thompson, James Thompson, John Thompson, Benjamin Canby, Thomas Cummings, Adam Kreisler, John McEwan, David Secord, Robert Hamilton, Timothy Skinner, Adam Vrooman, Charles and John Wilson. They were followed by the Lundy, Cook, Durham, Biggar, Ramsay, Pugh (Pew), Rowe, Tice, Rose and Corwin families.

In August of 1782, Colonel John Butler conducted the first official census. There were sixteen farm/settlers and their families. Two families (the Bender's and the MicMicken's) had settled in Township #2, later called Mount Dorchester and then Stamford.

In 1779, Michael Gonder and his son are believed to be the first settlers in Willoughby Township.

In 1778, Peter and Henry Buchner were the first to settle in Crowland Township.

 

The closest house to the battlefield (Battle of Lundy's Lane, Drummondville, ON) was James Forsyth's house ( present site of Ukrainian Catholic Church - Main Street). The next closest house was that of Haggai Skinner who lived north of the battlefield on present day Drummond Road. The only homes on Lundy's Lane were the homesteads of the Lundy's and the Green's quite a distance away.

Surrounding Lundy's Lane Hill were meadows and cultivated fields with thick woods less than a mile away stretching in every direction.

According to a letter written about the Prospect Hotel by the son of the original builder, Robert Fairbank, there is a tunnel that runs from Drummond Hill Cemetery to the Prospect Hotel. Now boarded up, it was originally used as an escape route by defenders, during the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812.

The first owner of Drummond Hill was James Forsyth. In 1798, he took out a patent for 400 acres of land including Drummond Hill.

The second owner of Drummond Hill was United Empire Loyalist, Christopher Buchner (originally spelled Boughner). He married Sarah Forsyth, the daughter of James and Eunice Forsyth.

Christopher set aside half an acre on Drummond Hill for a burying ground for his neighbouring settlers. At that time it was the only cemetery between Chippawa and Stamford. The oldest tombstone was that of John Burch’s dating back to 1797.

At the start of the War of 1812, Drummond Hill was fenced with logs and shaded by many maple and other large trees. The surrounding area consisted of several farm orchards and forest.

Buchner purchased 23 acres of land from his father in law, James Forsyth. This land included Drummond Hill.

John Buchner, the son of Christopher and Sara Buchner, fought for the British in the War of 1812. John saw action during the Battle of Lundy’s Lane on July 25th 1814 and it was during this battle that he was taken prisoner by American troops. Following the war, John Buchner was released.

After the original plot of land for the cemetery was filled, John Buchner donated another half acre so that it could be enlarged.

Catharine Buchner, the daughter of John Buchner married Donald MacKenzie. Through her inheritance she became the owner of the Buchner estate including Drummond Hill.

By 1860, all the available cemetery plots had again been filled. Donald MacKenzie, then owner of Drummond Hill was asked to donate more land in order to expand the cemetery. At first MacKenzie was reluctant to do so. He later sold more of his land holdings on Drummond Hill to allow for the cemetery expansion.

The property of Drummond Hill became part of the MacKenzie estate following the deaths of Catharine and Donald MacKenzie. The last surviving relative was John L. Mackenzie. He became the last private citizen to hold title to this historic battlefield and cemetery. Following his death, the property became a public historical site.

Today Drummond Hill cemetery encompasses four acres. In 1912, the cemetery and surrounding landscape was taken over by the Niagara Parks Commission.

Notes for DANIEL FORSYTH:

The name "Daniel" is an uncommon one amongst the clan of the Forsyth family in those early days prior to the Revolutionary War. However, James and Eunice named their second child with this honour. Who they named their son, Daniel, after or whether they chose the name by it's liking is certainly not known to us.

Another unknown concerning Daniel, is what his boyhood and adolescence life was like between the period of the settlement at Niagara in Canada, where he appears in the second census in Stamford Township - December of 1783 (Daniel Forsyth was listed as a son of James and Eunice), to being a settler, and then as an adult at Point Abino in 1783. His first recorded appearance in Canada was in 1783 listed at Point Abino as 11 years old and was found to appear again in the month of July 1793 at Point Abino, where he was about 21 years of age.

From the second Census record at Niagara, it is a high probability that Daniel was born about the year 1772. However, his place of birth could have been New London, CT or in the Wyoming Valley of Pennsylvania. The Wyoming Valley had very few settlers with families prior to 1772. In May of 1772, there were only five white women in Wilkes-Barre. In August of 1772, James Forsythe (his father) returned to New London to see about his affairs, and brought his wife to the Wyoming Valley in October of 1772, passing through Goshen, in the province of New York, and crossing the Delaware River, then entering Pennsylvania. It appears that his intention was to settle in the Wyoming Valley with his family.

Notes for SARAH FORSYTH:

According to "The Battle of Lundy's Lane"...

"William Lundy was a former Pennsylvanian who had come to Canada in 1786 with his wife and five sons to take up land lying a mile and a half along an Indian trail running west from the falls. Charles Green, a New Jersey Loyalist who owned the land over which the trail ran, donated it as a public road, and it became known as Lundy's Lane in honor of the prominent farmer whose property bordered it. South of the ridge, on both sides of the portage road, lay the property of James Forsyth, who owned a tavern and livery stable midway between Willson's Tavern and the junction of Lundy's Lane with the portage road. Forsyth's daughter Sarah had married Christopher Buchner, formerly of New Jersey, who obtained from Forsyth, either by purchase or gift, most of the ridge south of the lane and had built a house on the south west slope. West and south of Forsyth were the farms of Benjamin and Haggai Skinner, members of a Loyalist clan from Delaware. Haggai's daughter Lydia had married a recent American immigrant, Stephen Peer, and the couple resided at the south east foot of the hill.

Sarah and Christopher Buchner lived on the hill where Drummond Hill Cemetery, Niagara Falls is today. (Ed Forsyth - Lockport, N.Y.)

Interment for Sarah Forsyth: Drummond Hill Cemetery, Niagara Falls, Ont.

 

Notes for CHRISTOPHER BOUGHNER:

During the War of 1812-1814 Lieutenant Christopher Buchner served with the 2nd Lincolns, summer of 1814 at Chippawa where 16 men were killed and thirteen wounded, the heaviest losses incurred in a single engagement by a Canadian Militia unit during the war.

BUCHNER - "Some Graves on Lundy's Lane" by Ernest Green (Boughner, Buckner, etc)

"In memory of Captain Christopher Buchner who died September 7th, 1843, aged 59 years".

Christopher Buchner was a Loyalist from New Town, N.J. whose family (originally Boughner) came from Holland or Germany to that place and located the first farm recorded there. He married Sarah, daughter of James and Eunice Forsythe and purchased from his father-in-law property which included this hill (Drummond). It was he who gave the first half-acre for the use of the settlers as a burying ground. He was the first lessee by the Gov't for the privilege of operating a ferry below the falls.

Notes from: The Niagara Portage Road 200 Years 1790-1990 by George A. Seibel

"Boughner" was the original Dutch (or German) form of this name. Emigrating to America, members of the family took up the first land at what is now New Town, N.J. Christopher, taking the King's side in the Revolution, escaped through the forest to Canada, the party carrying some goods on pack horses.

Christopher Boughner was a wheel-wright for the Stedmans on "the old portage". He stated that he came into this province in 1786 or 1788 with a wife and family. He married Sarah, daughter of James and Eunice Forsyth, and, in 1799, obtained from his father-in-law, by purchase or gift, the property, south of Lundy's Lane now known as "Drummond Hill." He donated the ground for Drummond Hill Cemetery. He and his wife received 80.9ha (200 acres) of Crown land, each.

In 1786 Christopher Buchner sought to secure a mill-site on Patterson's Creek in the Long Point settlement, but it had already been granted to Captain William Francis.

Christopher Buchner was ensign, and subsequently lieutenant, of the Grenadier company of the 2nd Lincoln, but was lieutenant of Captain Burch's company in 1814. He and his son, John, were in the battles of Chippawa and Lundy's Lane. John was taken prisoner at Lundy's Lane, but soon escaped. John Buchner married Mary Ann Corbett, whose mother was a Johnson. Christopher Buchner died 7 September 1824, aged fifty-nine years. Lieut. John Buchner died 14 April, 1828, aged thirty-four years.

WM. FORSYTH.

August 1826.

William Forsyth, described as "a small wiry man, weighing barely 150 pounds" (Niagara, page 214) was "a bane to the Warrens and Colonel Kerby, continually outwitting them and their deputies by cunning and sheer daring. By the time of his death from exposure in 1849 Forsyth had established himself as the district's king of smugglers, a reputation challenged only by Smugglin' Sam Johnston who operated from 1840 to 1870 at nearby Pleasant Point."

"The underground railway had a crossing at this point, after Forsyth's death hiding its slave refugees in the Smuggler's Home..."

William Forsyth's father was a loyalist farmer who in 1783 or 1784 moved his wife and five children to the west side of the Niagara River. The family made its home in Stamford Township, where William was living in 1796 when he first petitioned for land. Three years later, then described as a yeoman, he stood trial for a felony. He was acquitted but on 7 March was jailed for a capital offence. Escaping the next day, he was foiled in his attempt to reach the United States and, back in prison, he petitioned Administrator Peter Russel for release conditional upon "his banishing himself." Despite the support of Robert Hamilton, the most powerful man in the district and an important figure in the portaging trade around the falls, Russell hesitated since Forsyth's offence involved "so many Questions of Prudence - Policy - & Law." By mid May he had still not made a decision, after which date nothing further is known on the incident.

Forsyth next appears as a farmer living close to the Horseshoe Falls. In his reply to an 1824 query about Forsyth's claim for losses in the War 1812, Thomas Clark, a neighbour and commanding officer of the 2nd Lincoln Militia (Forsyth's unit), reported him "a man of uncouth behaviour." Clark remembered that he had given "some displeasure and trouble to my nights." On the other hand, Clark believed that at the battle of Bever Dams in 1813 "he behaved very well in harassing the Enemy before taken prisoners." That fall American forces plundered Forsyth's home and farm. More damage was done to his house by Indians during a council convened by Major-General Phineas Riall. Clark noted that in 1814, when Major-General Louis de Watteville was quartered there, he used Forsyth as a spy "to go across the river...but report says that he took over as much if not more than he brought back." Clark was not in the province at the time, however, and was unsure how true the allegation was: "Forsyth is a man not generally liked, and perhaps malice may have instigated the report - his neighbours...have no doubts about his loyalty - and further say that when the Enemy were in possession here, he did, and did naturally shape his Conduct as well as he could to save his property." Although Forsyth's claim of more than 425 pounds sterling for losses was initially rejected, upon appeal, and after Clark's review of his wartime record, he was allowed 90 pounds in 1824.

Rumour and innuendo hung over Forsyth like the ever-present mist over the falls. The wartime stories did not impugn his character but they detracted from it, suggesting a man with a sense of what was best for himself. One popular historian, Gordon Donaldson, has hinted that Forsyth used his knowledge of the river to smuggle goods to and from the United States. There is no corroboration but Forsyth's early brushes with authority, made escape from jail, and self-serving character suggest that there may be room for doubt.

Some time after the war Forsyth built an inn on his property. Charles Fothergill stayed there in early April 1817. Two years later botanist John Goldie described it as the "nearest" to the falls of several inns along the river. In 1818 Forsyth had erected a covered stairway into the gorge for a different view at 1 shilling per person. These stairs were, he admitted, "upon the chain reserved for Military purposes, in front of...(his) Land between it and the River. "The falls was Upper Canada's greatest scenic attraction and Forsyth's inn was the place to stay. The Duke of Richmond (Lennox) stayed there in 1818 as did Lord Richmond (Lennox) a year later. The duke's party were less than pleased by the innkeeper's ability to accommodate them, in spite of his professed exertions, and there was a problem over the account. When Dalhousie arrived Forsyth's reputation was suspect; none the less, he found the "tavern and accommodation...were very good indeed, and the man himself, tho' a Yankee & reputed to be uncivil, was quite the reverse to us, obliging and attentive in every way." Visitors often seized upon other traits: Adam Fergusson pronounced Forsyth a "personage sufficiently shrewd and well informed" whereas Samuel De Veaux found him "a man of enterprising character."

(See additional information for more detail...)

1822 Niagara Falls

The place to go and the place to be seen was WILLIAM FORSYTH's
three-storey frame Pavilion Hotel on the Canadian side, with its white
portico and broad verandahs. Forsyth built it in 1822, advertised it as
a luxury establishment "for noblemen and gentlemen of highest rank,"
stocked it with "viands from every land" as well as "the best flavoured
and most costly wines and liquors," then sat back to watch the world
arrive on his doorstep.

He was a supreme opportunist - shrewd, enterprising, aggressive,
but also slightly disreputable. His family had come up to the Niagara
area from the United States after the revolution - traitors in American
eyes, but Loyalists to the British. His own background was clouded.
Acquitted of one felony in 1799, he was later jailed for another. He
fought on the British side in the War of 1812, sometimes with
distinction, sometimes more dubiously. His commanding officer, Thomas
Clark, called him "a man of uncouth behaviour" and again, "a man not
generally liked," but that was after the conflict when the two were
involved in a legal wrangle. This, then, was the somewhat murky
character of Niagara Falls' first entrepreneur.

The war was no sooner over than Forsyth built a small inn on his
family's property, an establishment that attracted such visitors as the
Duke of Richmond because it was the closest tot he Horseshoe Falls. But
the Duke was not happy with Forsyth; apparently there was trouble with
his account. On the other hand, another governor-in-chief, Lord
Dalhousie, quite liked him. The innkeeper, he declared, "tho' a Yankee &
reputed to be uncivil, was quite the reverse to us, obliging & attentive
in every way."

Forsyth set out to monopolize the best view of the Falls for his
personal gain. In 1818, he built a covered stairway down the cliff to
the foot of the cataract, where visitors could don water-resistant
clothing and walk behind the curtain of water. When he completed the
Pavilion he came close to achieving his object, for its rear windows
looked directly onto a portion of the cascade, and guests had the
exclusive use of a pathway that led through a woodlot to the finest
vantage point of all. Emerging from the shelter of the trees at Table
Rock, they were magically treated to the entire panoply of the cataract,
which appeared as suddenly as a lantern-slide thrown on a screen.

In spite of the vast chunk that had toppled off Table Rock in 1818,
this intimidating ledge of dolostone still projected fifty feet over the
Falls - so close to the crest that one traveller felt he could almost
dip his toe into the raging water (the distance was a little less than
five feet). The bolder visitors crept to the very lip of the overhang
and some, such as Frances Trollope, the writer and mother of the
novelist Anthony Trollope, were moved to tears as Thomas Moore had been.

A guide to the Fashionable Tour, as it was called, warned those who
attempted to climb down Forsyth's spiral staircase from Table Rock to be
wary about going farther. "The entrance to the tremendous cavern beneath
the falling sheet should never be attempted by persons of weak nerves,"
it warned. In spite of her tears, Mrs. Trollope's nerves were ot weak.
Others might shrink back; indeed, she "often saw their noble daring
fail" (a hint of condescension here) as "dripping and draggled" they
fled back up the stairs, "leaving us in full possession of the awful
scene we so dearly gazed upon."

Flushed with success and encouraged by the canal open for business,
Forsyth in 1826 added two wings to the Pavilion and plunged into a
series of acrimonious disputes that were to be his downfall. He was a
rogue, certainly, but in the struggle for the tourist dollar that was
just beginning, all were rogues of a sort. The successful rogues had the
political establishment on their side; Forsyth didn't. (For one thing,
during the War of Independence he was a soldier in Butler's Rangers. Any
man who'd fought alongside Butler during the war was treated most
unfairly by the local politicians later on, as was Butler himself).
For all of a decade he battered his head against the unyielding wall of
officialdom. One cannot help admiring his stubborness, if not his greed.

For greed brought him down. He didn't want a piece of the Falls; he
wanted it all. This single-mindedness antagonized his rivals. These
included John Brown, who had opened the Ontario House a short distance
upriver, and two miller-merchants, Thomas Clark and Samuel Street, Jr.,
who had beaten Forsyth and secured ferry rights on the river in 1825.

All were interconnected. Clark also owned a chunk of Brown's hotel.
A powerful figure in the burgeoning community and a former member of the
Legislative Council, he had the ear of the lieutenant-governor. He and
his partner, Street, were among other things land speculators and
money-lenders; the fact that many of the most prominent figures in the
region were in his debt gave him an edge that Forsyth could not command.

Forsyth was stubborn to the point of being bullheaded. When Brown
built a plank road from his hotel to the Falls, Forsyth ripped it up.
When Clark and Street got ferry rights on the river, Forsyth mounted a
pirate operation, harassing the partners so aggressively that they
couldn't operate.

Charges, countercharges, and lawsuits enlivened the battle. When
Brown's hotel burned down mysteriously, Clark spread the runour that
Forsyth was to blame. When Brown rebuilt it, he cound that Forsyth had
encircled the Pavilion with a high board fence, shutting off all access
to Table Rock and the Falls. But the government had set aside a public
strip one chair (sixty-six feet) wide along the river bank as a military
reserve. This was Crown property, and Clark persuaded the
lieutenant-governor to send a troop of engineers to tear the illegally
placed fence down. When Forsyth put it back up, the army tore it down
again, an act that many considered an outrageous use of the military
over an issue that should properly have been decided in the courts.
Forsyth sued; but when the civil suit was finally argued, he lost. He
lost again when Brown sued him for tearing up his road. He lost a third
time when Clark and Street sued him for ruining their ferry business.
That should have been enough, but Forsyth refused to give up. He filed
two countersuits and lost those too.

These civil actions failed to stop the irrepressible hotelier from
operating his illegal ferry system. What Clark needed was a criminal
action. To effect that, he managed to wrangle a license of occupation -
something Forsyth had failed to get - for that part of the old military
reserve that lay near his dock. The government reasoned that this would
"keep the shore open and free of access to the public who had been shut
out by Forsyth." Now the Pavilion's owner realized he could go to jail
of he trespassed on what had become the licensed property of his rivals.

In the end Forsyth was beaten down. His attempts to corral the
tourist trade at the Falls had failed. In 1833 he sold out - to Clark
and Street. The winners immediately focused their attention on an
ambitious real-estate speculation, which they named the City of the
Falls. In spite of the grandiloquent title, it was an ordinary
subdivision of fifty-foot lots to be laid out on Forsyth's old property.
Its purpose, they claimed, was to preserve the area from vandalism and
commercial enterprise!

Future residents of the City of the Falls were to have the use of a
fashionable Bath House complete with Pump Room and Dance Hall. But this
attempt to create a miniature Saratoga Springs at Niagara failed. Only a
few lots were sold, in spite of an aggressive advertising campaign,
while the attempt to pump water up from Table Rock to a resevoir in a
tower collapsed when the wooden pipes burst. As a result there was
water, water everywhere except in the Bath House, which fell into disuse
and subsequently burned. The entire scheme folded, and the investors,
including Clark and Street, lost heavily. As for the Pavilion Hotel, it
was soon superseded by the more luxurious Clifton House, named for the
struggling community growing up on the Canadian bank of the gorge.

It was here that the Front was born - that notorious quarter-mile
strip, just three hundred yards wide, that ran from Table Rock to the
Clifton House and provided a haven for half a century for every kind of
huckster, gambler, barker, confidence man, and swindler. Here half a
dozen hotels soon sprang up along with a hodge-podge of other shops,
booths, and taverns. And here Thomas Barnett built his famous museum
with its Egyptian mummies and Iroquis arrowheads.

C. H. J. Snider,"Schooner Days, no. DV" in the Toronto Telegram, July 26, 1941

 

Sending a Schooner over Niagara Falls: once She Was a British Man-of-war

They had some fool ideas of fun a hundred years ago, among which "Schooner Days" begs to include sending somebody else over Niagara Falls. The objection applies whether the somebody else is a man in a barrel or a pig in a punt. Recently the secretary-manager of the Port Huron Chamber of Commerce, Mr. H.A. Hopkins, who, of course, merits no such criticism, gave an historical instance in a broadcast. It was an account of how the old schooner MICHIGAN went over the falls in 1827. And it was taken, after various transcriptions, from an old letter written in Buffalo, September 9, of that year.

"The schooner MICHIGAN, as you have already learnt from me, was the largest on Lake Erie, and too large in fact to enter the various harbours on the lake, and being somewhat decayed in her upper work, the thought struck the owner, Major Frazer, formerly of New York, that she would answer the purpose of testing the fate of a vessel that by accident might approach too near the stupendous cataract of Niagara, and also the fate of animals that might be caught in the rapids of these swift rolling waters, and carried over the falls.

"The proprietors of the large public houses at the Falls, on both sides of the river, and of stages and steamboats, made up a purse to purchase the schooner, aware that they would be repaid by the company which the exhibition would attract; and in this calculation they were not deceived.

"For several days previous to the September 8, the stages came crowded, as well as the canal boats, so much so that it was difficult to find a conveyance to the Falls: and such was the interest that the descent was the only topic of conversation among all classes. On Friday night, September 7, wagons filled with country people rattled through the town, and on Saturday morning Buffalo itself seemed to be moving in mass towards the grand point of attraction. To accommodate those who could not find passage in carriages, five steamboats had advertised to leave here on Saturday morning, and great numbers chose this conveyance ...

"The CHIPPEWA was appointed to tow down the pirate schooner (as she was termed) the MICHIGAN: which service she performed. I took my passage in the boat, and we got under way before the others, passed through the basin at Black Rock, and about a mile below the Rock took in tow the vessel destined to make the dreadful plunge. As soon as we got under way the scene became interesting. The sun shone in full splendor, the waters of the Erie were placid, there being scarcely a ruffle upon its surface, and a few miles astern. of us four steamers crowded with passengers, and with bands of music on board, were plowing their way down the rapids of Niagara.

"Our little boat towed the MICHIGAN as far as Yales's Landing on the British shore, within three miles of the Falls where she anchored: and at this place the Chippewa landed her passengers as well the WILLIAM Penn, and they were convened from thence to the Falls in vehicles of all descriptions. The three other steamboats landed their passengers on the American side.

"Three o'clock was the hour appointed to weigh anchor on the MICHIGAN. The task of towing her from Yales's Landing to the rapids (and a most hazardous one it was) was entrusted to Captain Rough, the oldest captain on the Lake. With a yawl and five oarsmen, of stout hearts and strong arms, the old captain got the schooner under way, and towed her till within one-quarter of a mile of the first rapids, and within half a mile of the tremendous precipice - as near as they dare approach - and cutting her adrift she passed majestically on, while the oarsmen of the yawl had to pull for their lives to effect their own safety. Indeed such was the fear of the hands, as I have understood, that on approaching near the rapids they cut the tow line before they had received order from their commander. And now we approach the interesting moments of the exhibition.

"The high ground on both sides of the American and British shores were lined with people, having a full view of the rapids and of the approach of the vessel. And now it was that a thousand fears and expectations were indulged, as the MICHIGAN, unguided by human agency, approached, head on, the first rapid or descent, and apparently keeping the very course that the most skillful navigator would have pursued, having an American ensign from her bowsprit, and the British Jack displayed at her stem.

"She passed the first rapid unhurt, still went on, making a plunge, shipping a sea, and rising from it in beautiful style, and in her descent over the second her masts went by the board, at the same moment affording those who had never witnessed a shipwreck a specimen of the sudden destruction of the spars of a ship at sea in case of a wreck. Expectation of her fate was now at highest. She swung round and presented her broadside to the dashing and foaming waters, and after remaining stationary a moment or two was, by its force, swung round, stem foremost, and having passed to he third rapid, she bilged but carried her hull apparently whole, between Grass Island and the British shore to the Horse Shoe, over which she was carried stern foremost and launched into the abyss below.

"In her fall she was dashed into a thousand pieces. I went below the falls immediately after the descent, and the river exhibited a singular appearance from the thousands of floating fragments, there being scarcely to be seen any two boards nailed together, and many of her timbers were broken into atoms. Such was the eagerness of the multitude present to procure a piece of her that before sunset a great part of her was carried away.

"I believe I have neglected to inform you of the animals on board. They consisted a buffalo from the Rocky Mountains, three bears from Green Bay and Grand River, two foxes, a raccoon, a dog, a cat, and four geese. The fate of these you will probably wish to learn. When the vessel was left to her fate they were let loose on deck, except the buffalo, who was enclosed in a temporary pen. Two of the bears left the vessel shortly after she began to descend the rapids and swam ashore, not withstanding the rapidity of the current. On reaching the British shore they were taken. The buffalo was seen to pass over the falls, but was not visible afterwards. What became of the other animals is not known. Those who had glasses could see one of the bears climbing the mast as the vessel approached the rapids. The foxes, etc., were also running up and down, but nothing was seen of them after the schooner passed over. Two of the geese were the only living things that passed over, and they were taken up unhurt. Major Frazer obtained one, and an Englishman purchased the other for $2.

Respecting the effigies, of which there were several, the only one I saw below the falls was Gen. Andrew Jackson, apparently uninjured, throwing his arms about and knocking his legs together in the eddies, the only one of the crew of fancy that escaped unhurt. There were over 30,000 people in attendance, and you may judge of the situation of affairs when I assure you that I stopped at Forsyth's about 4 p.m. and was unable to obtain even a cracker or glass of water. It was the same on the American side."

Who and what was this schooner MICHIGAN, too big for Lake Erie early harbours? Why was she built?

One thing which makes this old letter of particular interest to Canadians is that it may - one cannot say that it did -settle the ultimate fate of the British ship Detroit, flagship of Commodore Barclay, captured by the Americans in the ill-starred Battle of Put-in-Bay in 1813. Lossing in Field Book of the War of 1812, compiled for Harper's in the early 1860s, when memories were still fresh, says the Detroit became an American merchant vessel and, not proving profitable, was striped and sent over the falls with live animals on board, in a sort of public festival organized by hotelkeepers. But later historians, a hundred years and more after the time, have questioned this, and pointed out that there is no official record of the Detroit's fate such as an in a custom house or marine registry.

Might it not be that the name of the British ship Detroit, already born by two American brigs, was changed to MICHIGAN when she was sold as a prize, and used as a commercial freighter? All official entries thenceforward would refer to the MICHIGAN. The fact that she was too big for contemporary lake harbours would fit in with this theory. For the Detroit was built for battle. The American men-of-war which captured her were also too big for most Lake Erie harbours, and had to floated away from their launching places on "camels" or pontoons. The fact that the MICHIGAN went over the falls "with the British Jack displayed at the stem" would indicate a British origin and signal an American triumph, even if the position of the flags was wrong by every know rule: ensigns are carried aft, jacks forward.

It was fool cruelty to send a cargo of animals over with the MICHIGAN, which is what we started out to suggest. The "DV" at the head of this 505th number of "Schooner Days" need not be taken as the equivalent of DV, as the skypilots say in the church announcements. The big V is for a big victory with divine help.

Notes for ELISHA FORSYTH:

In 1789, the year after his father died, Elisha Forsyth, who was now sixteen years of age, returned to Choconut, where he attended school. He was living there in 1794 when he married Freelove Parks, daughter of Capt. Thomas Park, who was the earliest settler at Park settlement on the west side of the Owego creek, near Flemingville. Previous to his marriage he worked eight months at Catskill learning the carpenter's trade, and afterward came to Owego. He assisted in framing the first frame building erected here and he built the first ark made on the Susquehanna river.

Elisha Forsyth spent the greater part of his life lumbering and farming. He died at Park settlement March 1, 1857.

Notes for DAVID FORSYTH:

April 15, 1910 - Hamilton Spectator

WAS BORN BLIND - David Forsythe Died This Morning At Age of 82.

Was One of the Best Posted Men in the Country.

Death made a sudden visitation to the Forsythe farm on the Dundas Road this morning and removed one of the most remarkable characters in this part of the country. David Forsythe, although in his 83rd year, had good health up to yesterday. He complained then of feeling just a little under the weather. This morning he arose as usual, ate a hearty breakfast and then laid down on the sofa. In a few minutes he complained of having a chill. Before medical aid could be summoned he had passed away.

Mr. Forsythe had never seen the light of day. He was born blind. His parents were married on the Forsythe Farm, half way between this city and Dundas, nearly 90 years ago, and there he was born. His wonderful acute sense of hearing enabled him to go around without assistance, and no one walking along King Street on a busy Saturday, seeing him, would suspect that he was blind. He knew public affairs just as well as if he had been a reader all his life, and was a wonderfully well posted man on almost every subject. He had always resided with his elder brother, James Forsythe, and wife, since their marriage over 60 years ago. He was one of the most ardent Liberals in the country; a man of fine characteristics and was esteemed by all who knew him.

Tombstone of John Buchner located on East side of Church facing City of Niagara Falls, Ont.

Niagara Historical Society, No. 22, by Ernest Green, page 25

Ontario Historical Society Papers and Records, Vol. XXV; 1929, page 286.

John Buchner, the son of Christopher and Sara Buchner, fought for the British in the War of 1812. John saw action during the Battle of Lundy’s Lane on July 25th 1814 and it was during this battle that he was taken prisoner by American troops. Following the war, John Buchner was released.

After the original plot of land for the cemetery was filled, John Buchner donated another half acre so that it could be enlarged.

i. CATHERINE11 BUCHNER, b. Abt. 1825, Drummond Hill, Niagara, ON; d. 02 May 1902, Drummond Hill, Niagara, ON; m. DONALD MACKENZIE, Abt. 1845, Niagara Falls, ON; b. Abt. 1820, Ontario.

Notes for CATHERINE BUCHNER:

It was through Catherine's inheritance that the Buchner estate became the MacKenzie estate.

Catharine Buchner, the daughter of John Buchner married Donald MacKenzie. Through her inheritance she became the owner of the Buchner estate including Drummond Hill.

By 1860, all the available cemetery plots had again been filled. Donald MacKenzie, then owner of Drummond Hill was asked to donate more land in order to expand the cemetery. At first MacKenzie was reluctant to do so. He later sold more of his land holdings on Drummond Hill to allow for the cemetery expansion.

The property of Drummond Hill became part of the MacKenzie estate following the deaths of Catharine and Donald MacKenzie. The last surviving relative was John L. Mackenzie. He became the last private citizen to hold title to this historic battlefield and cemetery. Following his death, the property became a public historical site.

Today Drummond Hill cemetery encompasses four acres. In 1912, the cemetery and surrounding landscape was taken over by the Niagara Parks Commission.

 

 

Notes for DONALD MACKENZIE:

McKENZIE'S BATTLEFIELD TOWER

On March 15th 1815, a peace treaty was signed officially ending the state of war between the British and the Americans. The War of 1812 had come to an end and the Niagara Frontier laid in ruins.

Next to the Falls of Niagara, the battlefields of the War of 1812 became the most popular tourist sites following the cessation of hostilities between the British and Americans The site of the bloodiest and deadliest battles of the entire War of 1812 occurred at the Battle of Lundy's Lane. This battlefield was the most infamous of the war and became an instant tourist attraction drawing curious people from both countries.

At the Lundy's Lane battlefield, tours were given by war veterans.

Donald McKenzie was a direct descendent of Christopher Buchner, who had given the original ½ acre of land on Drummond Hill to be used as a burying ground which is presently part of Drummond Hill cemetery.

In 1846, Donald McKenzie built the second battlefield tower on his property on the summit of Drummond Hill on the south side of Lundy's Lane. It was located in the vicinity of the present Drummond Hill Presbyterian Church Manse. It was build on land which was fenced enclosed and had been used at the time of the battle of Lundy's Lane as a funeral pyre for burning the dead soldiers bodies.

McKenzie's tower rose from the top of a two storey weather boarded building. Around the top of the building was a promenade with a railing. From the top of the roof, built of heavy timbers projected the tower which was eighty (80) feet tall and tapered near the top. Approximately ¾ to the top was another wall around platform protected by balustrade.

At the top of the tower was an outdoor observation deck with a telescope mounted on top of an iron stand. The top platform was protected with a perimeter railing. McKenzie had circulars printed which were distributed to visitors pointing out various points of interest.

Access to the top of this tower was a zig-zag staircase in the center of the column. Inside the first floor of McKenzie's building were shelves displaying Indian bead work, moose hair work , bark work and bullets. McKenzie offered for sale a large collection of canes. From here, visitors bought various souvenirs.

Access to the top observation platform cost tourists 25¢ each. For locals, access was free.

In 1851, the observatory was enlarged. The tower was raised and it was made to look more attractive.

On the night of July 4th 1851, McKenzie's Tower burned to the ground. Arson was suspected and was probably set by a competitor.

p.2 The Reciprocity Treaty and the Coasting Trade - an article about recent seizures of British vessels at the port of Oswego, "...A number of seizures have been made at Oswego of cargoes of lumber, wheat, etc., shipped to that port, in Canadian bottoms, from ports in the United States, on Lake Erie and the upper lakes. There has recently bee, we are informed, a seizure of some twelve thousand bushels of wheat, shipped from Chicago to Oswego, on board the barque Northern Light, a Canadian vessel, owned by Nelson Forsyth, Esq., of Fort Erie. The seizure made was, we understand, in virtue of the provisions of the acts of 1789 and 1793, regulating the coasting trade, and imposing certain conditions and prerequisites upon the vessels engaged in such trade..." for an alleged infraction of the American revenue laws, in carrying cargoes from American ports on the upper lakes to Oswego by the Welland Canal. (full column) [Buffalo Commercial Advertiser]

-The barque Gibraltar, with wheat, and bound down, went ashore at Beaver harbor, but succeeded in getting off after throwing overboard 2000 bushels of her cargo.

The barque Superior, of Quebec, was dismasted in the gale, but succeeded in reaching Beaver Harbor in safety, where she now is. The Superior had on board a large cargo of grain, and was bound for Liverpool.

We are informed that the barque John Sweeney, bound up, light, capsized in Detroit River Monday and sank in 30 feet water. [Buffalo Commercial of Wednesday]

Notes for JAMES FORSYTH:

James Forsyth - The "grand old man of Wentworth Country," James Forsyth owned and operated throughout most of his active years a large farm which is today an important part of the city of Hamilton, Ontario. (written c. 1930).

James Forsyth, son of Caleb and Amy (Smoke) Forsyth, was born on the Forsyth farm near Hamilton in 1824. Reared there and educated in the local schools, he spent all his active years on the farm, improving it, erecting the brick house which was one of the finest residences in the section for many years, and farming one hundred acres of land. In 1873 he leased the land, while he continued to reside in the old home. Ultimately the farm was subdivided into building lots, now incorporated in the city of Hamilton. Possessed of a remarkable memory to the end of his ninety-seven years, he could relate interesting facts about the early history of Hamilton, when the town consisted of a few houses and stores, a blacksmith shop, a church, and two hotels, set down in an expanse of wheat fields and potato patches. He died in his old home, December 16, 1921, and was laid to rest in the Hamilton Cemetary. A loyal member of the Methodist Church and a devoted husband and father, he brought much happiness to his family.

James Forsyth married at the homestead on June 1, 1848, Elizabeth Forbes, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. Mr. Brennen, pastor of the New Connection Methodist Church. She was born at Montreal in 1822, though her parents soon moved to Bytown, now known as Ottawa, in 1827. It was in 1845 that she came to Hamilton, and when she married three years later, seventeen residents of the town witnessed the ceremony, of whom four were living when the couple celebrated their sixty-five years of married life in 1913. Mrs. Forsyth died at the age of ninety-four. In 1908 they celebrated their diamond wedding. Two children were born to them: Sarah Jane, who married John Newland Barnard, and Alice Louise, who married Charles H. Peebles, chief clerk of the Ninth Division Court of Hamilton.

James Forsyth was secretary of the School Board, consisting of Mr. Joseph Cline and Mr. John J. Bowman and himself, when the land was purchased for the school site on November 10th, 1874, for the sum of $200.00 from Mr. Abram Binkley.

The Forsyths were always strong Liberals and at one time, when William Lyon MacKenzie was being hunted by soldiers for his part in the Rebellion of 1837, and a price of $4,000.00 was put on his head, he was given shelter in their home.

West of Forsythe Avenue, the land where McMaster University stands, was owned by Mr. Samuel Forsyth.

The remainder of the Forsyth farm to its easterly boundary was sold to John Bamberger and to Joseph Cline.

Notes for MCKENZIE FORSYTH:

A Tribute

McKenzie Forsyth

Another old Comrade bent with years,

tragically answered the final call;

Another name on the "Roll of Honor"

which will soon contain them all,

Another little wreath for Memorial

Day to place on a soldier's grave,

Another small flag on a grassless

mount - that flag he helped to save.

Two pictures - Oh so different, before

my vision flow -

One is that of a soldier boy of

fifty years ago

Active, erect, and willing to fight for

his country's noble cause.

Fifty long, long years ago - that's

what McKenzie was.

The other is a picture of bent, old,

time wrecked man -

with cane in hand, with step infirm,

on life's most Western span.

Uncomplainingly he suffered, agreeably

accepting Nature's laws.

And only a short, short time ago -

that's what McKenzie was.

When this nation needed soldiers to

bequeath to me and you

Unsullied, our proud banner, the old

Red, White and Blue.

Young McKenzie was among the ones

to give up civilian joys,

To defend our Flag against assault

by stubborn Southern boys.

When you assemble on Memorial Day

when your mind goes wondering back

When you think of wars - great horrors -

just kindly think of Mac.

For from those bloody battle fields

love and peace, abundant grew,

So cherish McKenzie's memory

for what he helped to do.

Notes for OLIVIA JANE FORSYTH:

Fort Erie, Ontario Jan 2, abt. 1934 (CP)

Niagara frontier's oldest native born resident, Mrs. Olivia Forsythe Everett, 92, member of a pioneer United Empire Loyalist family, died suddenly today. She was born in Bertie Hall, historic Niagara boulevard building, still in use. Her father was the late Isaac Brock Forsythe, an expert swimmer, who was drowned in the Niagara River in 1850. Her grandfather, William Forsythe, originated The Pavillion, famous Niagara resort in 1832. His controversy with the then governor of Upper Canada, Sir Perigrine Maitland, is still an interesting historical record.

Olivia Forsyth Everett, age next birthday - 91 years, born Fort Erie, ON.

Cause of death: Bronchial Pneumonia

Buried: January 4, 1934. St. Paul's Church, Ft. Erie.

_______________

Mrs. Olivia Everett, Fort Erie's Oldest, Dead at 92 -

Deceased Lady was born in hundred-year old Bertie Hall

Many Memories - Fort Erie. January 2, 1932

Mrs. Olivia Forsyth Everett, oldest native-born resident of Fort Erie died suddenly this morning at her home on Highland Ave., aged ninety-two. A little link with the old days of this town passes in the demise of Mrs. Forsythe, who recalled the Fenian raids across the Niagara River and whose family has been associated with numerous historical features of district life. Born in a Mansion, the famed Bertie Hall, which is one hundred years old, Mrs. Everett was hale and hearty prior to her death. Last August she celebrated her ninety-second birthday. Mrs. Everett's grandfather came to Bertie in 1832. He founded the famous Pavilion Hotel at Niagara Falls. He also operated a stage coach from Fort Erie to Niagara Falls and a ferry in the lower Niagara River. Her father was the late Brock Forsyth, a noted Niagara swimmer. He lost his life through drowning in the river which he often conquered. Mrs. Everett's husband, the late Patrick Everett, a well-known frontier fisherman, died in 1914 and several children predeceased her. She resided with her son and daughter, Alvin Victor Everett and Mrs. Laura Hale. The deceased lady baked her own bread and completed a batch the day before her death.

THE TIMES REVIEW, Fort Erie, Ontario, Thurs. January 4, 1934

Death claims Mrs. Everett at age 92

Link with past is broken when Fort Erie's grand old lady dies Monday morning at Highland Avenue home.

With her passing, another link with the past is broken long before there was a village of Bridgeburg in 1842, Olive Forsyth was born at Bertie Hall. The massive residence along the riverfront at the corner of Phipps street and the Niagara Blvd.

Bertie Hall was built by her grandfather, William Forsyth more than a hundred years ago and Mr. Forsyth operated the Pavilion Hotel in Niagara Falls, on Prospect Point and he ran the first stage coach between Fort Erie and Niagara Falls. The hotel burned and the proprietor started on a search for a new home.

Built Bertie Hall - He settled on the area later covered by the town of Bridgeburg and now a part of Fort Erie. The land he purchased and he then proceeded to build Bertie Hall. Stone for the foundation was secured from around the walls of Old Fort Erie. Upon his death, the land was divided amongst his sons, one of them the father of Olive Forsyth, today the only remaining thing in the family is the house in which Mrs. Everett died and which passes to her son, Alvin Everett. With her five brothers and sisters, Olive Forsyth attended school in a boat shop owned by her father Isaac Brock Forsyth, at the rear of Bertie Hall. There was no public schools in those days. On March 8, 1865 she married Patrick Everett in the little Anglican Church by Rev. Biggars, and the couple lived happily until 1915, when Mr. Everett passed away at the age of 81. Only two close relatives survive, her daughter, Mrs. Laura Hale, and her son, Alvin, both of whom reside on Highland Ave. home. Four children, two sons, and two daughters predeceased their mother. She was the eldest and last survivor of the six children in the Forsyth family. Her sister, Mrs. Louise Anthony of Detroit, who was a year younger, died 3 years ago and will be remembered only by those residents of Fort Erie who were in the eighties when she left the area. Funeral services will be held from the home on Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. with Rev. William Burt in charge. Interment will be in St. Paul's Cemetery.

 

Notes for PATRICK EVERETT:

Patrick Everett was born at the boundary of Bertie and Willoughby Twps., near Black Creek, in the year 1834. He lived on his parents farm until he was 17 years of age. He ten moved to Victoria to a place on the riverfront, where he was employed by Captain Freebury, a very progressive boatman on the river at the time. It wasn't long before he became a boat owner himself and a Captain, and he was for years the most cheerful ferryman on the Upper Niagara, between Chippawa and Fort Erie. He had a contract to supply wood for the Buffalo Municipal offices. The wood he gathered along the river from Fort Erie to Victoria, and to Chippawa. The wood was carried on scews, and they in turn were pulled by tug power. He knew all there was to know about the river, its currents, its shallows, and in particular Devil's Half Acre, a stretch of water between Catherine and Gilmour Road. During the Fenian Raids his boat was captured by the troops. He got it back several weeks later and continued to work along the Niagara. When he was old enough to retire, Mr. Everett bought himself a boat livery at the foot of Bowen road, and for twenty years it was the haunt of every school boy. In March of 1865 he married a Miss Olive Forsyth the daughter of Isaac Brock Forsyth. They had six children, three girls and three boys, Mrs. George Hale, Mrs. John Jax, Mrs. Fred W. Hale, and Alvin and Ernest of Victoria. One child died young. Ernest worked on the railroad and was also killed at an early age. Alvin was an Engineer on the Ferries and lived to an old age, dying in the Welland home. Mr. and Mrs. Everett after their marriage lived in a house on Highland Ave. on the north side just up from the river. It was bought by a Ray Willson and later remodeled. The building is still standing.

Notes for JANE ANKEL:

Letter to Edward Forsyth from Jeanette:

" When my Grandmother, Jane Ankle Forsyth came to Canada, her father had already died in Glasgow, Scotland. His wife, a son ( I can't remember his name) and Jane came on a sailing vessel. Jane was quite young, about 12 years old. Inasmuch as they didn't have money to pay their passage they were bound out to pay their passage. Jane was fortunate, the people who bought her services were kind to her, but the boy didn't fare so well. I don't recall about the mother. After the son earned his freedom, he left Canada and settled in Michigan, he died unmarried, and left my grandmother with a small inheritance. Robert and Jane Ankle had another son, name unknown, who served with a Scottish Highland Regiment in India and was killed there.

" My granddad, C.D. (Clark Davis) Forsyth is the one, but I don't know why they moved from Canada. I did hear that he traded with a brother.

DUTCH CUSTOMS OF CHILD NAMING

Most Dutch families followed certain customs of child naming. The two eldest sons were named for the grandfathers, the paternal one first unless the maternal one had some distinctive social position, had more money or was deceased. Sometimes the first son was named for the mother's first husband if she were a widow. The two eldest daughters were named for the grandmothers. Some families alternated with the first son being named after the paternal grandfather, the first daughter after the maternal grandmother, but this is not as common. If a child died, almost always the next child of the same sex was given the same name.

Chronic nephritis is a chronic inflammation of the tissues of the kidney.It is caused by a wide variety of etiological factors. The disease is frequently associated with a slow, progressive loss of kidney function. It is usually discovered accidentally, either by routine urinalysis (tests done to check kidney function) or during a routine physical checkup when anemia, hypertension, or laboratory findings (elevated serum creatinine and blood urea nitrogen) are discovered. Its course is long and the prognosis (expectancy of cure) is poor
