51 from Clarke Johnson, Aug 2007
Witnesses at marriage of J. B. Johnson and Susan Brown were Robert Thomas Brown and Janet M. Johnson.
Old pic. of Johnsons sitting on log was at Ozzie's place on Ottawa River in Aug 1949 Reunion
The 'B' was just an initial to distinguish him from another John Johnson His first farm was in Westmeath. I think they called it the old Hennessy place. He moved to the Zion Line farm he bought from John Wilcox. When he sold it to Tom Broome , Jessie cried because she missed it and hated Tom Broome for buying it This was on the left side of Zion Line coming from Cobden. It was a fair distance off the road. Dr. Pye bought it from Tom Broome and fixed it up and lived in it. She was very young at the time. They lived in a rented house approx.. where the old age home is on the outskirts of Beachburg. JB travelled all over looking for a farm. He went to Kinburn near Ottawa, north to Iroquois Falls Ont and west to the prairies. he finally bought the place outside of Beachburg that Delbert eventually took over. While at this farm they were sitting inside when somebody came in and yelled that the chimney was on fire. Uncle Sam happened to be there at the time. They ran to the horse trough in the barn yard and filled buckets of water . It was fortunate that there was a ladder already standing against the house. Sam ran up the ladder with a bucket in each hand and they threw water on the fire that had caught the shingles on fire and saved it For some reason the children and mother were throwing articles out the window to save them in case the house was lost and the boys threw out the commodes,[thundermugs] from under the beds and not one of them broke. [Story from Aunt Jessie who saw them do it and from Edsel, son of Sam told to me in April & May 2000.]
From his son Harold Johnson in interview in Aug 2002 that John B Johnson's first farm was the "Hennessy Place" whom he worked and then rented from. At this time John B was school trustee of the school near Hennessys His 2nd farm was on Zion Line which he bought from Mr. Wilcox and then sold to Tom Broome. It was known as the "Broome Place". His 3rd farm was know as "Gov. Farm" which was at the Little Lakes in Beachburg, basically on the site of the old age home. He rented it in 1922 and worked on the road that went through there from Foresters Falls . He was there from spring to fall. His next farm was the "Hynes Place" on Zion Line. It is about 1/2 mile past Keith Johnson's place and on the opposite side of the road. They lived on the Hynes Place for approx.. 2 and a half years from 1922 to the fall of 1925. His last farm was known as the "Martin Place" and was on McLaughlin Rd. beside the farm that became my father Alex's farm, John B's son) and my fathers farm was bought by his brother Bill.

Hazel & Harvey were my neighbours when I was growing up. They were retired and aging then and lived at 11 Truelove St. which was Morton St at that time. The vacant lot next to them was also part of their property. Harvey spent a lot of time keeping all his cedar hedges in perfect trim and Hazel was often in her garden with her straw hat on. They were always welcoming to me and I enjoyed visiting them - in the summer when they were out and about, that was most days. They were very kind to this neighbourhood kid and I have very fond memories of them.

Merrill had a great interest in the Bennett and Lewis family history. She shared information & photos from the John Bennett & Caroline Gibbons family line and was a great encourager of mine to produce a Bennett 'book'. Early on she convinced me to created a mini version for her family line before I considered compiling a book. Couldn't say no to Merrill. Always smiling!

60 Note by this author:
Clarke & this author corresponded off & on over a lengthy period of time regarding Ross & Westmeath Twp genealogy and shared many genealogical finds. Clarke was faithful to stop in for an afternoon of genealogy when he visited the valley.
The Johnson/Brown genealogy listed on this site has greatly benefited from the research and collection of photographs supplied by Clarke.
I was deeply saddened to have lost this genealogy 'buddy' but am thankful that some of his genealogical efforts will be passed along through this website.

"LEGLESS, 90, STILL LIVELY

A pastor without legs, but with a super-abundance of faith, Rev. A.H. Argue, Maytree Road, hits the ripe old age of 90 tomorrow and if any Pentecostal church wants an occasional preacher, he's ready, willing and eager to oblige, providing a couple of strong-arm men are available to lift his wheelchair into the pulpit.

Ordained 51 years ago, the cousin of CCF politician Hazen Argue, is renowned as the founder of the largest Pentecostal church in Canada - Calvary Temple, Winnipeg. The loss of one leg 11 years ago and other nine years ago, because of circulatory ailment hasn't stopped the gentle, blue-eyed nonagenarian with the gold-rimmed spectacles. This year he has preached in Montreal, Belleville, Peterborough and Toronto, as well as making a short address at the recent Fifth World Conference of Pentecostal Churches held at the Coliseum.

Atlantic and Pacific

A 30-minute man in the pulpit, "Grandpa" Argue as he is affectionately known, loves fishing for fish as well as for men. He has wetted a line in the Atlantic and Pacific, and a lot of lakes in between.

"Netted a 38-pound muskie in my prime" he said.

Among his proudest moments are a handshake from President Calvin Coolidge and a letter from the late King George VI.

The wheelchair pastor, who has ministered in 70 different Pentecostal assemblies from Los Angeles to Montreal, smilingly admits that Argue is quite a name for a parson and he's done quite a bit of it over the years for the cause he represents.

"Two of my children were named Will Argue and May Argue", he said.

Fathers Three Preachers

Of his six children, five are still alive. His wife died in 1939. Mr. Argue's eldest daughter, Zelma, is Rev. Zelma Argue, an ordained minister in a California Pentecostal group; a son, Rev. Watson Argue, Santa Monica, California, is an evangelist, while another daughter, Mrs. C.B. Smith, Peterborough is a licensed lay woman preacher.

Two grandsons are already in the pastorate - Rev. Andrew Watson Argue, Jr. , Southgate, California, and Rev. George Smith, Edmonton, Alberta, while two others are preparing for the ministry at Springfield, Mo.

One of the first Canadians who shared in the original Pentecostal conversion experience 50 years ago when he "spoke with other tongues", Mr. Argue is living with his youngest daughter, Mrs. Fulton Robinson.

Fondling his granddaughter's dog, Chee Chee, the pastor said he did not think the world was a better place now than at the time of his ordination. "It's too restless and youngsters take too many liberties", he said.

As he sifted through the first of his birthday cards, he added that he wasn't too unhappy, however, "because the Lord is coming soon."

65 Rev. Hugh J. McAlister and the McAlister family trace their Pentecost heritage to the Argue revivals in Winnipeg in 1907. Having received Spirit-baptism as a young man, Hugh followed in his father John's footsteps and entered Pentecostal ministry. He was ordained in Alberta in 1924 and pastored in Edmonton, Calgary, and Saskatoon. He later moved to Ontario and pastored at St. Thomas, Pembroke, Peterborough, and finally the Stone Church in Toronto. He was District Superintendent for Eastern Ontario and Quebec from 1943-1945 and served on the General Executive of the PAOC. A great leader of the national movement, Hugh was instrumental in bringing Billy Graham to Toronto for a crusade in 1955. A few months later, Hugh died suddenly and unexpectedly. A great Pentecostal preacher, pastor, and father, his passing was a great loss for the fellowship.
