c. 1925

Services were held at various places, the principal ones being the Johann Dick home in Cottam, the Johann Berg home in Kingsville, the Johann Martens home in Coatsworth, the Abram Berg home, a large room in Arthur Brown's hotel in Leamington ... the Kingsville Town Hall, the Ruthven United Church, ... the Johann J . Dick home and the German Lutheran Church in Windsor ...

OLINDA, ONTARIO - 1920S - DUKES AND GRANTS

Apparently the Dukes had been known for experimenting with unusual types of trees. The Whittle buartnuts had been dug up as chance seedlings which had emerged in the vicinity of producing heartnut trees, black walnuts and butternuts ... several of which are still standing today.

The farm across the road contains some fascinating historical secrets too. Somewhat accidentally, I discovered from some old Annual Reports of the Northern Nut Growers Association (NNGA) going back to the early 1920's, that a chap by the name of Grant Fox was responsible for planting the row of Persian walnuts at Olinda. Where he obtained the seed, one can only conjecture. It is possible that he may have purchased seed via the Crath, Carpathian expeditions which got under way in the early 1930's. However, the Foxes of Olinda were a colourful group and there were successors to the nut growing traditions such as Ezra Fox who was known familiarly to the neighbours as old Ez ....


Post 1926

 

In the meantime, Reverend Jacob W. and Mrs. Lohrenz had come to Essex County to act as liason for immigrant families coming to the Essex-Kent area. In spring of 1926, my Father came to take a look around. First he went to see Cornelius Neufeld who was already working in the fishery at Port Crewe. Then Dad walked and hitch-hiked to Kingsville's brick yard and got work there. He found a white frame house owned by Everett Cowan to which he brought his family; rent was $6 monthly. It was here that I had my first drink of chocolate milk which was an absolutely delightful experience!

Because the Cowan house was large, a number of immigrant families lived with us until they found places of their own. Among them was the Cornelius Enns family and the Peter Warkentin family. In fact, it was Susie Warkentin who took me by the hand and got me started at the Inman School in 1927 ...

1930s

Nicholas George Krahn was born on November 13, 1925 in Neu York in present day Ukraine. His parents were Gerhard and Helena Krahn. Nicholas was the eldest child and only son with three younger sisters, Elsa, Margaret and Gertrude.

When Nicholas was five years old, he left Russia with his parents and his four year old sister Elsa, travelling on the S.S. Melita to Canada where they settled in Essex County, Ontario. His two other sisters, Margaret and Gertrude were born in Canada in 1931 and 1936 respectively.

The family lived within various areas of Essex County like Wheatley, Ruthven and Colchester. In Essex County, his parents farmed land growing crops like tomatoes and spinach. During his later years, Nicholas’s father worked within the Real Estate Industry.

Nicholas went to school in Wheatley and at the Ruthven Public School in Ruthven. His teachers included Miss Hillman, Miss Crewe, Miss Brown, Miss Watson, Miss Olson and Mr. Brown. He went to school up until the end of Grade 8 ...

1940s

I was happy when my future sister-in-law Anne took my job at Jackson's and I got a job cutting asparagus for Tilden's at Point Pelee. Here a group of girls lived in the cabins. I also tied tobacco at Brown's on Concession 2. During the winter months I worked in the Imperial Tobacco Factory on Oak Street and boarded at Wienses who lived on Victoria Avenue of Leamington. I slept in the little upstairs room.

In the fall of 1943 Jacob Neufeld and I were married; we lived on a farm on Concession 7 ...
