This is an excerpt from an article by G.F. Griffin (?) in the Toronto Star Weekly, Saturday, March 15, 1923 or 1924.) ...Rev. Peter Addison served the pastoral charge of the Wesleyan Methodist Church at Kettleby, Lloydtown Circuit, from 1871-1874…In 1859 he was a young colonist busy in the act of winning a farm from the bush of south Middlesex. (Ontario) …On his ninety-second birthday, last December, he spoke in Parkdale Methodist Church, the church of his son, Rev. A. P. Addison.
This was written in the 1950s...Peter came to Canada from Westmoreland, and after pioneering as a farmer entered the Methodist ministry and became known far and wide for his earnest and intrepid work in that church. One of his daughters, Margaret, was for many years, Dean of Women at Victoria College in Toronto. The other daughter, Charlotte, for years a dietician in a New York Hospital, is living retired in Toronto.A son William, became a doctor, and another son Arthur, a minister.
Would appreciate hearing from anyone with knowlege of any of the Addisons mentioned above.
