Harry Alison's obituary ran in the The Sarnia Observer pg 2, 8 Feb 1867

The remains of the late Harry Alison, Captain 90th Light Infantry, were recently brought from North Douro to the burial place of his family in Warwick. He was the founder of a large colony, having immigrated to this country in the year 1833. Death left him unscathed in many a hard fought field, but took him away in the 93rd year of his age, a faithful soldier of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Volunteer Review, and Military and Naval Gazette

Ottawa, Canada, Monday, 11 Feb 1867

DIED, At North Douro, County of Peterborough, on the 11th January, Captain HARRY ALISON, aged 91 years and 6 months.
A large number of friends will sympathize with Mrs. Alison on the death of her lamented husband, who was so widely known as one of the earliest settlers in the upper Province.
To many he was a wise, constant and zealous friend; to others an old and valued acquaintance. He had by many years outlived the allotted span of man’s existence. Towards the close of life's day his faculties failed him, until at last he fell asleep in death.
Harry Alison was born on the 5th June, 1775. He had consequently completed his 91st year. His father having died when he was very young, an uncle undertook the charge of his education, and for that purpose he was sent to the College of St. Andrew‘s (Scotland), where he was instructed under a private tutor for some years, and acquired a thorough knowledge of the classics. His uncle designed him for a writer to the Signet, for which he served the requisite time; but disliking the profession, on the expiration of his articles, he started off to London, and there sought the advice of his relative, Lord Melville, at the same time stating that he would like to join the army. In the course of a fortnight his Lordship had him gazetted to an ensignacy in the 93rd Highlanders, to the great discomfiture of his under the clergyman. In the early part of 1794, Mr. Graham, afterwards Sir James Graham, and subsequently Lord Lyndoch, having raised a regiment of infantry, offered Captain Hill (afterwards the celebrated Lord Hill) the rank of major, and Mr. Alison, whom he had known from his earliest years, the post of paymaster, with the rank of captain, which he accepted, but ever afterwards regretted. He, however, performed the duties of his office to the utmost satisfaction for upwards of thirty years. Many persons were surprised at so young a man being appointed to a situation so honorous; but as his relatives, Baron Moncried, and his uncle, Dr. Inglis, of Gray Friars, were his securities, the government did not raise any objections to Lord Lyndoch‘s choice. An intimacy sprung up between Major Hill and Captain Alison, and in him the Captain had a warm and constant friend until the last hours of his Lordship‘s life. Lord Hill was afterwards gazetted lieutenant-colonel, and on the 1st of January, 1800, colonel of the 90th. The regiment was ordered to Gibraltar, and afterwards to Alexandria, in Egypt, where it landed on the 8th March, 1801, under Sir Ralph Abercrombie. After the defeat of the French, the regiment returned to England, arriving there on the 1st April, 1802, and remained in Ireland until 1805. Whilst there, Captain Alison married Miss St. Clair. Lord Hill, who was his best man on the occasion, said that he "was delighted to have so charming a young lady in the regiment". Shortly afterwards the regiment was ordered to the West Indies, then considered the most unhealthy station of the British Army. Mrs. Alison‘s relatives and friends urgently persuaded her not to go to that deadly climate; but feeling it her duty to accompany her husband, no inducement could deter her from her purpose. Out of nine ladies who accompanied their husbands, she was the only one who survived. Both Mrs. Alison and the Captain suffered from the yellow fever. Whilst on the West Indies station, the English took Martinique and Guadaloupe from the French, for which the Captain was awarded a medal and clasp.
On the breaking out of the American War in 1812, the 90th was ordered to Canada, and was stationed at Ancaster, near Hamilton, C.W. The change of climate was so great that Mrs. Alison was taken dangerously ill, and the Governor kindly ordered the Captain to return to Montreal. On Mrs. Alison‘s recovery they were again sent West, and stationed at Niagara, at which place they expected to remain some time, and made themselves as comfortable as circumstances would admit. At the end of a month, however, the regiment had just two hours‘ notice to leave for Europe. The officers and men immediately embarked in open batteaux, shooting the rapids of the Long Sault and Lachine on their way to Quebec. Shortly after their arrival in England, they were ordered to the continent, and were stationed at Ostend, Bruges and Ghent, and subsequently, after the battle of Waterloo, in Paris itself, where his Colonel., Lord Hill, was second in command to the Duke of Wellington.
The scandal occasioned by the trial of Queen Caroline again brought them to England. After a short residence there, a rebellion breaking out in the Ionian Islands, the regiment was again ordered on foreign service, and was eventually stationed for many years at Corfu. Here the Captain and Mrs. Alison and their amiable daughters passed the most agreeable period of their lives.
From Corfu they were again ordered to England. On the voyage home they were wrecked on the island coast of Sicily, immediately under Mount Etna. The vessel went to pieces, and the Alisons barely escaped with their lives. The treasures of many years, and of many a clime were swallowed up by the rapacious sea. The Governor, hearing of the terrible disaster, immediately ordered the "Naiad" frigate, commanded by Sir Robert Spender, to the scene, which eventually landed the passengers and crew, after much suffering and hardship, in Malta, with barely sufficient clothing to cover them. Three days afterwards the 90th proceeded to England, leaving the women and children behind.
On arriving once more safely in his native land, the Captain hoped for a short respite from foreign service, but in this he was much mistaken. He was almost immediately ordered to Ceylon. Captain Alison, at the time, was taken most seriously ill, and unable to proceed, and in an evil hour, before the arrival of his family from Malta, he left the service and commuted his pension, having made up his mind to settle in Canada, where the British Government was giving grants of lands to retiring officers and soldiers. His eldest son, Rowland, who had also obtained a commission through the influence of Lord Hill, sold out at the same time. The second son, Charles, received an appointment in the office of the Embassy at Constantinople, where he distinguished himself on several occasions, and where he was twice Charge d’Affairs during the absence of the Turkish Ambassador. Since then he has received the appointment of British Minister to the Court of Persia.
On Captain Alison's arrival in Canada, Sir George Colburne, the Governor, dispatched the Commissioner of Crown Lands to select a location for him. He finally settled in the townsite of Warwick, county of Lambton, on a beautiful spot of ground, but totally devoid of any traces of civilization for many miles around.
When settlers began to settle a little about the place, Captain Alison's house, then by far the largest in the clearing, was used for a number of years as a place of worship on Sunday. The Lord Bishop of Toronto used to make it his home on his tours in the West, and held several confirmations there. The writer of this notice had a brother and sister confirmed in it. The old house, known far and wide as "Warwick Castle" was burned on the morning of Easter Sunday, 1855. Captain Alison again lost many curiosities, and amongst them some very valuable ones sent from the East by his son Charles. Not only these, but almost everything of value about the place was consumed.
Captain Alison was a Justice of the Peace for upwards of 25 years. He breathed his last on the 11th January, having accomplished more than half his 92 years.
His life has not been in vain. His example as a practical Christian led many to see the error of their ways and reform. He was always looked up to as the head of the colonists which he had collected around him, chiefly composed of his own immediate descendants. A few years before his death he moved to the residence of his son-in-law, W. W. Nicholls, Esq., North Douro, where he ended his eventful life in peace and quiet. His remains, however, were conveyed to Wisbeach, and buried beneath the shade of an orchard of his own founding. He leaves a sorrowing widow, after sixty-four years of happy married life, to mourn his loss. They had 13 children, 64 grand children, and 29 great grand children, making a total of 108 descendants.

Henry Bearss (1854-1915) Pop-up Pedigree

Henry Bearss was born on 19 Apr 1854 in Warwick Twp; as recorded in 1901 census.

He appeared on the federal census bt 1861 - 1911 in Warwick Twp.

Henry married Mary (Mamie) Smith, daughter of Maurice Smith and Mary Shaw, on 28 Sep 1886 in Warwick Twp 1.

Watford Guide-Advocate pg 1, 14 Mar 1890

WARWICK HOTEL BURNT About two a.m. on Friday morning last the Warwick Hotel, in Warwick Village, was discovered to be on fire, and the inmates of the house had barely time to escape with what clothes they could hastily secure. The fire soon made such headway that any attempts to extinguish it were unavailing.
It is said to have originated in the bar room, and was probably caused by a defective chimney. Most of the furniture was saved, but the stock of liquors, cigars, etc., in the cellar was lost. Mrs. Bearss also lost a purse of money, which was forgotten in the excitement. Some of the guests stood out in the street thinly clad and are suffering from the effects of exposure. The building was owned by Wm. Rogers and was not insured. The hotel was built of brick, and was erected by the late David Rogers some 34 years ago. At that time it was regarded as one of the finest hotel buildings in the county. Being on the direct line of travel between Sarnia and London it was a favorite stopping place for travelers between those points, and for many years did a thriving business. It was occupied by Henry Bearss, and it is not probable that it will be rebuilt. Thus passes away another of the old landmarks of Warwick.

Henry Bearss was noticed in the Watford Guide-Advocate pg 1, 4 Mar 1898

Mr. Henry Bearss has purchased the Warwick hotel from Frank Restorick of Watford. Mr. B. keeps a well conducted house, and will no doubt continue to do good business at this old established stand.

Henry married Mrs. Minnie Chapman, daughter of John Stumpf and Mary Etzel, on 9 Sep 1913 in Watford.2

Henry Bearss died 27 Mar 1915 in Watford; struck by a train3. His obituary states he was buried at Warwick Mennonite Cemetery although he is recorded in the St. Paul Cemetery plot book, no stone.

KILLED BY FAST EXPRESS Instant Death of Henry Bearss, of Watford, Last Saturday

Another fatality, the result of walking on the railway track, occurred on Saturday, when Henry Bearss, of this place, was struck by G.T.R. Chicago express, No. 13, and instantly killed. The accident occurred just east of the town. The deceased and Thomas Glenn had been working for Chas. Kelly, 6th line, Warwick, and were walking home into Watford on the track when the accident happened. A freight trains was approaching from the west at the time, and in moving off the track deceased failed to notice the approach of the express, which struck him, hurling him over 150 feet. He was dead when picked up, his body badly mangled, almost every bone being broken. Glenn was ahead of him at the time of the accident and did not see him struck. There was a stiff breeze blowing from the northwest at the time and it is supposed Mr Bearss did not hear the train until it was too late to get out of the way. It is supposed that he was in the act of getting off the track when the running board of the engine caught him.
Dr. Kelly, coroner, ordered the remains to be removed to Harper Bros.' undertaking rooms, and a jury composed of E. McGillicuddy (foreman), D. Roche, W. McKercher, A. McDonnell, J. S. Williams, J. Glass, J. H. Hume and J. Bruce, was impanelled. After reviewing the remains an adjournment was made until Tuesday evening, the coroner giving an order for the burial of the remains. The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon from deceased's residence, Huron St., to the Mennonite Cemetery, 4th line, N.E.R., Warwick, the Rev. F. G. Robinson officiating. The pallbearers were J. E. Fowler, D. Roberts, H. Pearce, J. Roche, J. Bruce and J. Stanger. Deceased leaves a widow but no family. He has two brothers living in the Niagara district and three sisters in this district. The adjourned inquiry was held on Tuesday evening when several witnesses were examined, including the crew of train 13. Co. Crown Attorney Bucke conducted the proceedings and a verdict of accidental death was recorded.

Bryson - Demaray "Mount Pleasant View Farm," fourth concession, Adelaide Township, the home of Mr. and Mrs. Richard V. Demaray, was the scene of a very pretty wedding on Wednesday, October 8, when their eldest daughter, Winifred Grace, became the bride of Asahel Albert Bryson, youngest son of the late George and Mrs. Bryson, Main Road, Warwick. The ceremony was performed by Rev. W. M. Shore, and Rev. L. W. Reid, of Amherstburg, uncle of the bride, promptly at high noon.
The bride wore a costume of white georgette over silk with satin, rose and bead trimming, and carried a boquet of white carnations and maiden hair fern. Miss Elva Mathews, of London, cousin of groom, acted as bridesmaid, wearing white silk crepe-de-chene. Mr. Wm. Bryson, brother of groom, acted as best man. She entered the parlor on the arm of her father to the strains of Lohengrin's Wedding March played by the groom's sister, Mrs. Lewis Shepherd. The ceremony took place under an arch of evergreen, Canadian holly and roses. Little Lillian Reid, cousin of the bride, made a pretty little flower girl carrying a basket of white asters concealing the ring and dressed in pale blue silk.
After the ceremony the guests numbering fifty retired to the diningroom which was trimmed with pink and white, where a dainty wedding breakfast was served by cousins of the bride. The groom's gift to the bride was a beautiful necklace set with pearls and topaz, to the bridesmaid a pearl sunburst, to the groomsman a pair of pearl cuff links, to the flower girl a gold locket set with pearls, to the pianist a gold wrist watch, to the soloist a bar pin set with pearls. The happy couple left on the 3.30 train for Toronto and Niagara Falls, amid showers of good wishes and confetti. Miss Beatrice Foster cousin of the bride sang "Perfect Day" during the signing the register. On their return they will reside on the groom's farm, Main Road, Warwick. Mr. and Mrs. Asahel Bryson were the recipients of many costly gifts and substantial cheques. The bride, previous to her marriage, was pleasantly surprised with a miscellaneous shower from her Sunday School, thus showing the great appreciation of her numerous friends.

Two of the victims were well known Warwick Twp. residents 76-year-old Asahel Bryson, and his wife, Winnifred, 67, both of R8 Watford. Mr. and Mrs. William Elgie Arthurs, of Plymouth, Mich., near Detroit, both aged about 65 were also killed.
The Brysons had been in Watford and were on their way home when the accident occurred shortly before 3 p.m. on a two-lane stretch of the main highway about two miles from the Bryson's farm home.
All four persons were pronounced dead at the scene by Coroner Dr. A. M. Calder, of Forest, and all four are believed to have died instantly.
Since the accident the Forest O.P.P. detachment, which is dealing with the accident, has appealed for witnesses who might have seen the accident, to come forward so that the cause of the tragedy might be found. At press time, no decision has been made regarding an inquest.
Both cars were extensively damaged and straddled the highway for more than an hour as police re-routed traffic along the busy Sarnia-London highway. Traffic was detoured at the Highway 79 intersection to the second line south in Warwick Twp. and back along 24 sideroad to Highway 7.
This was the third fatal accident on Highway 7 in the last two months and occurred almost two years to the day since the last multiple-fatality in Warwick Twp. On August 11, 1965, a station wagon and truck collided in the township killing three children and a woman. Following the accident, bodies were taken to Sarnia General Hospital by Sarnia Ambulance and McFarlane Ambulance, of Forest.
Mr. and Mrs. Bryson are survived by five sons, Lloyd, of London; Calvin, New York; Kenneth, Mount Clemens, Mich; Clayton and Carl, both of Warwick Twp., and one daughter, Mrs. Wesley Smale [Jean], who resides across the highway from her parents. A total of 20 grandchildren are also left to mourn the loss.
Mr. Bryson is survived by a brother, William, R8 Watford, while his wife, the former Winnifred Grace Demaray, leaves two sisters, Mrs. L. A. Baker [Mae] and Mrs. George Knowles [Beatrice], both of London, and brothers Earle and Ross, who reside at Belmont.
A double funeral was held for the two victims on Monday afternoon from Harper Funeral Home and Rev. Wm. D. Mercer officiated with interment in Wisbeach Cemetery.
Pallbearers for Mr. Bryson, all neighbors, included John Pedden, Sherman Williams, Clarence Evans, Lorne Willoughby, Frank Dekoning and Keith Howden, while for Mrs. Bryson, nephews Bill Bryson, Harry, Marvin and LaVerne Shepherd, Doug Demaray and Don Stover served in that capacity.

On August 11, 1965, a station wagon and truck collided in the township killing three children and a woman. Following the accident, bodies were taken to Sarnia General Hospital by Sarnia Ambulance and McFarlane Ambulance, of Forest.
Mr. and Mrs. Bryson are survived by five sons, Lloyd, of London; Calvin, New York; Kenneth, Mount Clemens, Mich; Clayton and Carl, both of Warwick Twp., and one daughter, Mrs. Wesley Smale [Jean], who resides across the highway from her parents.

WARWICK FARMER THROWN FROM BINDER MEETS INSTANT DEATH Joseph Gorman Has Neck Broken When He Falls Backward Off Binder
Joseph Gorman, well known Warwick township farmer on the Main Road east of Wisbeach, met instant death in his field on Monday afternoon, shortly after he had commenced to cut his fall wheat. The wheel of the binder slipped into a groundhog hole, throwing Mr. Gorman backwards off the binder. The sudden pull on the lines halted the team of horses and they backed up, breaking his neck. Dr. Robinson, of Arkona, immediately summoned, pronounced death had been instantaneous, and an inquest was not necessary.
Mr. Gorman had lived in Warwick district since coming from Ireland as a boy. He was in his 58th year, and is survived by one brother, James, on an adjoining farm, and one sister, Miss Minnie Gorman, with whom he resided on the home place.
The funeral was held in St. Paul's Anglican church, Wisbeach, on Wednesday afternoon, with the rector, Rev. E. C. Jennings, officiating. The pallbearers were six neighbors: Walter Wilson, George Hawken, William Howden, James Watson, George Conkey, and George Iles.
