On Wednesday June 23rd in the year 1926 a wedding took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. James Forbes Dalhousie Township. The bridegroom was Mr. Stanley Jackson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alex Jackson of Watson’s Corners. The bride Miss Margaret Elizabeth was the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Forbes. the bride looked charming in her gown which was whirlpool blue crepe-de-chine, and was wearing a crown of orange blossoms and carrying a bouquet of pretty mixed flowers.

At 4:30 pm the bride and groom entered the parlour to the strains of the wedding march played by her best friend Miss Edith Stead. Mr. Del Storie was Jackson’s best man while the bride’s sister Miss Blanche Forbes  waited on the bride. The cermony was conducted by the Rev. J. T. Caswell standing in front of plants and flowers overhung with bunting and wedding bells. Mr David Forbes, grandfather of the bride was present and led the way congratulating the pair.

The bridegroom’s gift to the bride was a wristwatch and to the bridesmaid and pianist pretty bracelets. At the close of the ceremony Mr. Del Storie sang a wedding hymn. After the signing of the register the bride and groom led the way to the dining room where a sumptuous feast was displayed and the wedding crowd did ample justice. The bride officiated at the carving of the cake with a few nervous tremors which could be expected under the circumstances. The toast to the bride was proposed by Rev. J. T. Caswell and suitably responded to by Dr. Droft followed by witty speeches from Mr. David Forbes and Mrs. Alex Jackson. The presents were handsome and numerous consisting of silver, glass and china wear and household linens. The young couple will settle down at Watson’s Corners where the bridegroom is a farmer.

The Morphys at first didn’t care that where they settled in Carleton Place—they had a room with a view of  the water falls — with water privileges added. Not one of them tried to utilize it. In 1820 Mr. Coleman bought one of their privileges with the thoughts of building a mill here on the Mississippi banks- but he had such difficulties he didn’t carry through. Coleman however sold his rights to Hugh Bolton. Bolton erected what was the only grist mill between Perth and Bytown for many a day. In 1820 Hugh Boton ground out the first bushel of wheat in the first grist mill between Perth and Bytown. Jayne Henry from the Museum has heard stories of women walking from Perth to buy flour. In those days the trees were roughly cut down to clear roads. Some stumps were neck high and the women would rest the flour on their backs on top of the tree stumps.

 

 

 

The Hugh Bolton Grist Mill at 35 Mill street and the Brown Flour Mill next door date from the late 1823. The five story addition was added in 1885 to accommodate a roller press mill. This mill actually operated until the 1960’s until a fire destroyed the interior. In the 1980’s it was converted into condominiums. The origiinal millstone was found during the renovations and put across the street.  Hugh had ordered one from Scotland but it never arrived. (wonder what the shipping was on that one) So Hugh went up the river and got some made granite from up the river and carved his own.
