From Dan Kehoe
Would you be able to post this Diamond Anniversary for me? Its from the Almonte Gazette, Thursday April 1, 1937. They are my Great Great Grandparents. The Mrs. H L Black mentioned in the article was my Great Grandmother. I’m hoping to make some connections for my family research.
Many of my ancestors migrated from Lanark County and even Pontiac County, Quebec (Ottawa River) TO Dungannon Townsip Hasting County. Surnames include, Wood, Black, Caldwell, Turriff, Letts, McInnis.
Thank you for your consideration

In 1901, the original Glasgow Cheese Factory that was built in 1894 was moved by its owners, Croft and Denny, from the 8th line to the 6th line. In response, the farmers of Glasgow and the surrounding area got together and subscribed shares in the new factory which was built at the crossroads of the 8th line and the Sandpoint-Burnstown road (presently Highway 17 and McLean Drive). Unfortunately, the First World War caused the price of cheese to drop and the price of the tools needed to make cheese increase. Many farmers switched to producing cream and butter instead of cheese. In 1927 the Glasgow Cheese Factory was sold to Jim Cox who dismantled it and moved to Almonte.
