The Earthquake -- A Casualty - House Blown Down at Portage Du Fort
THE EARTHQUAKE.
A Casualty - House Blown Down at Portage du Fort.
The only accident we have heard of, resulting from the late earthquake, occurred at Portage Du Fort, Mr. Swalwell of Ottawa, was about to build a new house alongside the one he was living in at Portage Du Fort, and had finished digging the foundation the evening before. In the middle of the night This house began to tremble and sway violently and at length, with a heavy lurch, it tumbled into the cellar along side of it. There were eleven persons sleeping in the house that night, besides Mr. Swalwell, yet wonderful to relate, not one of them received the slightest injury, although the house was thrown into ruins. - Ottawa Free Press.

Ozias Banning's House (c. 1864) in Clayton, Ontario
Ozias Banning (1837-1908) originally from L'Orignal, Ontario; was a merchant and Clayton's postmaster (the latter for 17 years) between 1860 and 1904. He purchased Lot 22, Concession 2, Ramsay, Lanark County for his home and adjacent general store in 1864 from Hiram Bellamy, who had 150 acres awarded to him in 1837.
In the summer of 1864, Ozias Banning bought a small parcel of this land, measuring just over one acre, for $500. He built a house and general store here. Upon the death of Ozias Banning in 1908, the property was willed to his wife Catherine and daughter Annie Bertha Banning. In 1925, Catherine Banning died leaving Annie the sole owner, but she too died just five months later. By will, Alice Eva Catherine Bowland, a sister to Annie, was granted the property. When Alice Eva Catherine Bowland died in 1943, the land passed to her brother, William Banning. In the following year he sold to Kathleen Halpenny and Mary Lansdowne for $1500.
