Information on the children and their birthdates was copied from the old Bible belonging to Mark and Barbara Hallowell. Bible now in the hands of Ellen Bunyan Bein, daughter of Thos. C. and Ellen Hallowell Bunyan. Ellen Hallowell was the daughter of Robert Hallowell. On one leaf of the Family Record, written in the same handwriting and apparently at the same time, was the list of children. The Bible was published in 1822, so it is apparent the names and dates were written at one time. Cousin Jessie Lesher thinks Agnes hallowell - the first daughter, must be her geat grandmother Nancy, as date of birth is the same. Apparently the first James Halliwell must have died as James S. was born May 6, 1814 and must have been given the same name. John Bunyan, of Berthoud, Colorado, oldest child of Thomas C. and Ellen Hallowell Bunyan, has an old letter, dated Lamptlaw, Scotland, Feb 26, 1796, written by John Halliwell to Mark halliwell, in cae of the Rev. James Mairs, Galloway, county of Saratoga, near Albany, North America. The cemetery in Saratoga County NY has two gray tombstones inscribed as follows: Mark Halliewll died June 30, 1853 AE 92 years Barbara wife of Mark Halliwell died December 9, 1845 AE 72 years.

William Garland

b. 1809, d. 29 January 1892
William Garland and Bridget Madden
     William Garland was born in 1809 at Ireland. He was the son of John Garland and Nellie Butler. William Garland died on 29 January 1892 at Marlboro.

From Unknown Newspaper: "Edgewood Farm, Marlboro, February 2--It is with sorrow we chronicle the calling away from amongst us of one of our oldest and most respected citizens, Mr. William Garland, whose name was fimiliar to nearly every one in th county of Carleton, passed peacefully away on the 29th January, 1892, in the 83rd year of his age. He was born in Ireland in 1809, came to Canada with his parents when 11 years old. the family consisted of 16 persons, viz. father, mother, eight sons and six daughters; each of the children upon reaching maturity married. twelve settled in the county of Carleton and two in the county of Lanark, where the scriptural injunction as complied with to multiply and replenish the earth. four of the brothers died between the ages of 82 and 84 years. "Mr. Garland chose farming as his vocation. He first settled on a farm in the township of Goulbourn. Not finding the land what he anticipated he moved to the township of North Gower, then being opened up. He secured a farm upon which he lived until 1883. At that time he and his wife feeling old age coming upon them, resolved that the care and exertion of conducting a farm was too much for them. He disposed of it and procured a house in the villiage of North Gower, to use his own words "within the shadow of the church" where he remained eight years when again the feeling overcame him that the care or even the management of a house was too much for them at their advanced age and decided to board. He found a suitable place on the farm known as "Edgewood Dairy farm" in Marlboro adjoining North Gower, owned by John Mccordick, Esq., whose wife was a favorite niece. The old homestead being built of stone, large and airy and surrounded by beautiful evergreens, they hoped to spend their summer months pleasantly, but in that they have been disappointed. Their stay with Mr. Mccordick was most agreeable, and nearly his last words were in acknowledgment of the kindness he had received. Mr. McCordick in conversation, after his death, said, that in his illness he never heard him make a complaint, that his object seemed to be to give as little trouble as possible. "The funeral was conducted from Edgewood Farm on sunday and was tehlargest seen in that locality for a long time upwards of 60 teams formed the cortege. The sad procession was led by rev. robt. Atkinson incumbent, North Gower, to the old stone built church in that village, in the shadow of which he lived for so many ears. During the half mile before reaching the church theold bell tolled forth the solemn warning that a member of this earthly habitation had been called to his heavenly home. Rev. Mr. Atkinson conducted a most impressive service. the choir sang with organ accompaniment several hymns suitable to the occasion. Rev. Mr. Atkinson, under whose charge he has been for some time, preached a most impressive sermon. His words of comfort to the sorrowing friends were such as to give hope for a glorious resurrection. His prayers for the bereaved widow, who had lost one who had been a partner for about three-score years, caused the eyes of strong men to become bedimmed with tears. Service over the peocession re-formed and wneded its solemn way to the old churchyard at Wellinfton in which stands the little white church surrounded by hundreds of white marble monuments each one telling its own story. It may be remarked that the Wellington cemetery or churchyard, as it is called, is strikingly beautiful, sloping back to the west from the high road, displaying its solemn contents to the passers-by, while close on the eastern side flows the Rideau river in its silent meanderings, serene in its peacefulness fearing, as it were, to disturb the quiet dead. "In a grave near the summit they laid him and the Rev. Mr. Atkinson, who travelled these long miles over bad roads, was at this post to perform the last rites of the church, which he did most solemnly, while around the grave for the time it took to offer up his solemn offering of hopeful words every head remained uncovered and silent awe prevailed."

John Garland

b. 1770, d. 1845
     From "The Story of the Derry", by George Edward Kidd, 1943, page 68: " THE JOHN GARLAND FARM "This farm (W. 1/2, Lot 23) was homesteaded by John Garland, who brought his family here in 1819 from Coolcullen, in Wexford, Ireland, where he had been born in 1770. His wifes name was Butler, and they had a family of fifteen children, whose descendants are now scattered across Canada. All except two of these children were born in Ireland, and with the exception of three, all accompanied their parents to Canada. Those who temporarily remained behind were: Nicholas, who had arranged to be married; Thomas, who was serving as a bakers apprentice, and wished to complete his apprenticeship; and Margaret, then a girl in her early teens. She remained for a time with her brother Thomas, but came out two or three years afterwards with Mr. Keerfoot, who settled in the Prospect community. Her borothers followed soon afterwards. "John garland di not long remain in The Derry. His choice of farm had been one of those unhappy mistakes which was sometimes made by a homesteader in picking out a bush-covered lot. It was easy to clear, and for a time the rich loam gave an abundant crop; but the limestone was too close to the surface and the soil soon lost its fertility. In 1827 Mr. Garland quit his Derry Farm and moved to the second concession of Goulburn. Here he resided until the time of his death in 1845. The younger children accompanied their parents to the new farm and most of the older boys, some of whom had bought land in The Derry, also followed to Goulburn, and bought farms close to their father's place. The name of Garland is well known in that township, since at one time almost all the members of Johns large family resided there. "There were fifteen children in this family. Nicholas, James and Patrick we have mentioned before when referring to their connection with the Robert Scott farm. Edward, who was fifteen years of age when his father left The Derry, accompanied him, and later inherited the Goulburn farm. This property is now owned by a grandson of Edward--Eddie Garland--who, however, lives on a farm in the third concession. Next there was John, who also accompanied his father to Goulburn and bought a farm in the third concession. His son Stephen still resides here, being now ninety-one years of age. Of the remaining children, there weree: richard, of whom little is known except that some of his descend- ants now reside in Carleton Place; Thomas, who lived in Goulburn; William, Margaret (Mrs. John Kidd), Matilda (Mrs. George Leach), Ann (Mrs. Moore), Betty (Mrs. Kidd), Maria (Mrs. Hand), and Hetty, who married a Keys, a one-time teacher in The Derry. A little girl, Ellen, died while a child. "When John Garland quitted his homestead he retained possession until 1832, in which year it was sold to James Ferguson who had been a neighbor on the second lot to the east. The farm remained in the possession of that family until Knox Ferguson sold it to James Kidd previous to the formers departure for Dakota. It now belongs to Edgar Kidd who uses it only for pasture land. "Until recent years there stood on this farm an old roofless barn, which was build of rock elm logs. It was erected by John Garland and when torn down the logs wre perfectly sound. It is said that in raising the barn, the logs were felled within a few yards of its site, and were carried there by hand. Close by, there are traces of the foundation of the old Garland house: a rectangular embankment enclosing a depressed area in the center. There is also the old well, blasted from the limestone, its circular wall being perfectly smooth." John Garland was born in 1770 at Coolcullen, Wexford, Ireland. He was the son of William Garland Colonel and Elizabeth Staples. John Garland died in 1845 at Goulburn, Canada.

Agnes (Nancy) Halliwell

b. 1 March 1796, d. 16 May 1876
     Note by Jessie Mcconchie Lesher: The above Agnes Halliwell, born March 1, 1796 is undoubtedly nancy Hallowell who married Joel N. Adams, though I have never run across this name any place else. so far as I know she was always known as Nancy. The following is from thu notes of Frances Ramsey wo took them as dictated by her mother, Jane Adams Allen, daughter of Joel N. and Nancy Hallowell Adams. "Grandpa Hallowell came from the south of Scotland, county of Roxburg (called Roxburrough), hamlet of Sprouston, not far from Earlston, where the Carter brothers came from. I have heard Grandpa and Mrs. Carter talk of common friends and of Grandpa's handsome sisters. This is about 30 miles south of Edinburg. I remember hearing of Kelso, Jedburg, Letholm, Durafia, and many others, but think Sprouston was where his home was. M. James, while staying at Kelso, visited the cemetary, where the Hallowells were buried; they died at a remarkably old ate. In an old exercise book Grandpa used in school his name was also spelled Hallewell and Halliwell. The exercises in Arithmetic were beautifully written and very neat. "In Glasgow, I think, you will find the Swans, who are among the gentry, if you please; twice I have been told so, by people who came from the same place. The Swans ae bankers, ministers, lawyers, etc. Reverend William Swan has sent sermons to Pa by George Davisson. I remember Mrs. Reagles telling of noticing a couple of people watching and talkinf of her on one of teh steamboats between New York and Albany, and at last the woman came over and asked |Mrs. Reagles if she were not a Swan, she was so like their minister at home, Reverend Mr. Swan, who had relations in America. "Grandma was Barbara Swan. I think her father was George Swan who lived near Albany when she married mark Hallowell." Another note along this line says the ancestors of the hallowell family in Scotland were buried at Lempitlaw, about six miles from Kelso, Scotland. One of their family was Povost of Fife. Agnes (Nancy) Halliwell was born on 1 March 1796. She was the daughter of Mark Halliwell and Barbara Swan. Agnes (Nancy) Halliwell died on 16 May 1876 at age 80.
