66 A LLEN McNAUGHTON.— Obstacles are of no account to some men, they appear to move on easily whether difficulties beset their way or not. They pass from one kind of work to another so naturally that to an onlooker it seems easy. Such a man is Allan McNaughton, who was born in Ontario, Canada, June 3, 1852. In his early life he had few advantages ; he attended the public school and remained with his parents until 1871. At the age of eighteen years he began the study of telegraphy. In 1874 he immigrated to the United States, locating in Omaha, Neb., and accepted a position with the Mutual Life Insurance Company, which did not prove satisfactory ; he therefore identified himself with the Union Pacific Railroad Company and became agent for that road at Granite Canyon, where he stopped until 1879, a period of five years. In those days, 1876, the Indians were dangerous and aggressive. Mr. McNaughton adopted the wise precautions of his neighbors and always went to sleep with his rifle
close at hand, ready to defend himself in case of an attack. His next venture was a journey to
Dakota, where he served as constructive telegrapher for the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul
Railroad Company, also agent at Running Water on the Missouri.

From there he went to Sanborn, Iowa, in the interest of the same company, where he was soon
recognized as a leader by the Republican party and was elected mayor of Sanborn in 1885. He
served one year, resigned his position with the railroad company and again took up the insurance
business, locating at Sioux Falls, S. D., where he continued until 1894, when he came to Montana as agent for the Pacific Railroad Company at Blossburg. In 1895 he took up his present location at Elliston, Mont., and in December of that year, in company with C. S. Cornick and Elmer
Napp, undertook to develop a mining proposition. Having no capital, it proved slow work, but such
men do not lose courage. They persevere in the face of difficulties. In May, 1901, it became evident that the property was of sufficient value to incorporate, and in order to make it a success,
it was operated under corporate form. It is now known as the Beatrice Mining and Milling Com-
pany, of which D. G. Barringer, of St. Paul, is president ; C. S. Cornick, vice president ; Allan
McNaughton, secretary and treasurer; E. Napp, superintendent. The mine is very rich in gold, silver and copper. Mr. McNaughton is also interested in valuable copper mines in the Snowshoe
district. He is associated with the Masonic fraternity, being a member of the blue lodge. As
a citizen he has won the confidence of the business people in the community in which he lives ; those
who know him best trust him most. He is a kind, courteous gentleman, straightforward in all
his relations in life.

On December 25, 1873, Mr. McNaughton was united in marriage to Miss Sarah J. Ayerst, who
was born in Frontenac county, Ontario, Canada. Her father was a native of England, who immi-
grated to Canada, where he became a very successful farmer. He and his wife were members of
the Methodist church. They had five children who survive the parents, namely, Edward A., Sarah
J., Charles L., Mina and Charlotte A. The children are members of the Presbyterian church. In
politics he supported the conservative party, and was a Mason in the third degree. To Mr. McNaughton and his wife have been born three children, two of whom are living, Beatrice and Allan
E. The family are members of the Presbyterian church.

Mr. McNaughton is of European origin, his father being a native of Perthshire, Scotland, and
his mother of England. They immigrated to Ontario, Canada, and entered into agricultural pur-
suits which proved very successful. The father served as elder in the Scotch kirk of which the
mother was also a member. In politics he was identified with the Reform party. Eleven children were the issue of the marriage, four of whom have passed away, namely, John, Thomas, James
and ^largaret, the parents also having gone to the great beyond, the father dying at the venerable
age of seventy-nine, in the year 1879, and the mother in 1885. The surviving children are Alexander, Annie, Elgin, Mary, Kate, Sarah and Allan.

75 A Tragedy
The closing hours of Good Friday were marked with as sad an occurrence as has been recorded in Almonte in many years ? the accidental death of Mr Thomas Edward Scott. He was a son of Mr W.H. Scott of New England and a boy well known an well liked in town. He was just beginning to develop and gave every promise of making a fine athlete. It seems hard to realize that one so full of the vigour of life should be so suddenly called away. He was alighting from a freight at the station about eight o'clock Friday evening when in some manner he slipped and fell under the wheels. His right leg was completely severed. Medical help was quickly on hand, and he was removed to the hospital, but the loss of blood and shock had been too much and the power we call life departed Saturday evening. He was sixteen years of age. The funeral on Monday was very large. Among the floral tributes were: Wreath from the Victoria hockey team, wreath from the High School hockey team, wreath from the Knitters' hockey team and a pillow from his chums.

Barnett, Aaron George (I04464)
 
79 Aaron was a Veteran of the War of 1812.

The Evidence shows Aaron was married three times.

His first marriage was to Anna "Nancy" Martyn, on 7 Jan 1794, she was born on 5 August 1772 very likely in Windham, Connecticut. She passed on 20 Jan 1804 In Williamstown Vermont. She was the daughter of Richard and Susannah A. (Low) Martyn and the sister of Aaron Smith Martyn who married Sally Martin , the sister of Aaron.

He married his second wife on 6 May 1804, she was Hanna Wise , born in 1781, in Conn. and died 19 Feb 1809 Williamstown Vermont. She was the sister of Sarah who wed Gurdon Martin, Aaron's Brother. Hanna and Aaron had three children.

On 5 Oct 1809, Aaron married his third wife, Polly Burnham, born on 3 Nov 1788 in Brookfield Vermont,, and died on 26 August 1864 in Williamstown Vermont. She was the daughter of Elijah and Albina (Bowen) Burnham of Ashford Connecticut which is near Hampton Connecticut. Elijah Burnham was a descent of John Burnham of Ipswich, Massachusetts was likely the first of the Burnham family to go to Hampton Conn. then on to Vermont. He was born in 1763, and died on 17 Feb 1813 in Brookfield Vermont. His wife , Albina was born in 1764, and died on 6 Nov 1830 in Brookfield Vermont. They were likely the parents of Ariel who was the father of Martin Pain Burnham, who married Ann Ellis , daughter of Hiram and Philenda ( Smith) Ellis of Williamstown and South Barre Vermont.

Aaron was likely the first of the Martin family to come from Windham, Connecticut to Williamstown, Vermont which he did in 1791. He remained one season to clear a small piece of land , build a log cabin, and then return on foot to Windham for his wife Anna. Though Anna spelled her last name with a "y", history tells us such distinctions meant nothing and she may have been a distant relative of Aaron's before marriage.

Aaron Martin had 14 children combined with all three of his wives. Five died in infancy. The others made it to adult hood and each had many children of their own, of which their off spring are living to this date ( 2013). The Martin's played a big role in the development of Williamstown Vermont and the surrounding area, many serving in public office as Judges, counsel members, Police, and doctors. Most early Martins were farmers in addition to public officials, and to this day many are farmers, while still serving their communities.

82 About 1760, Jeremiah French Jr. and others formed a group called the Nine Partners - a land developing company. They purchased the original patents the King gave to about 61 of his buddies, and subdivided and sold them. Jeremiah Jr. surveyed much of the town of Manchester, Bennington County, Vermont, and was the first Town Clerk. He eventually moved to Manchester.
Jeremiah French Jr, was a Loyalist and a Captain in the Queen's Loyal Rangers, then later a Lt. in the Royal Regiment of New York, (called the "Yorkers"). He forfeited much of his lands in Vermont and moved to Cornwall, Ontario where he became a very prominent citizen and was the area's first representative to Parliament in Ottawa. His house was actually moved from land now submerged to make way for the St. Lawrence Seaway Project in the 1950's, which he had sold to a son-in-law, George Robertson. That house is still standing at Upper Canada Villages, near Cornwall, Ontario, Canada. The house is called the "Robertson House?. Prior to this house, Jeremiah lived at the 1811 House in Manchester Village, Vermont.
