35 Alberta, Past and Present, Historical and Biographical Vol 2 Peter M. Campbell, M. D.

For more than a quarter of a century Dr. Peter M. Campbell of Lethbridge has been engaged in the practice of medicine, and the record of his efforts is written in terms of success. He is recognized as one of the most able physicians and surgeons of this part of the country and today enjoys an extensive practice of a distinctively representative character. Dr. Campbell is a native of Admaston, Ontario, born on the 9th of February, 1872. His parents, John and Jane (Connery) Campbell, were also of Canadian birth but the Campbell family is of Scotch lineage, the grandfather, Peter Campbell, having been born in the land of hills and heather, whence he came to the new world with his parents when a lad of seven years, the family home being established in this country. He devoted his entire life to farming. The grandfather in the maternal line was a native of Ireland and also arrived in Canada in early life. John Campbell devoted his life to agricultural pursuits and lived for many years on one place, there passing away in 1921. His widow is seventy-eight years of age and is still a resident of Ontario. They were the parents of eight children, six of whom are living. Mrs. Campbell's religious faith is that of the Presbyterian church, to which Mr. Campbell also belonged, and his political views were in accord with the principles of the Conservative party.

Peter M. Campbell, the eldest of the family of eight children, pursued his education in the Renfrew high school and afterward took an art course in Queen's University at Kingston, Ontario, and then in preparation for his chosen profession he matriculated as a medical student at Queen's and was graduated with the M. D. degree in 1896. Immediately afterward he began practice in Beachburg, Ontario, where he remained until 1900. when he made his way westward, with Cardston as his destination. For six years he was a representative of the profession in that place and in 1906 he removed to Lethbridge, where he has since made his home. Here he at once opened an office and through the intervening period of seventeen years he has steadily advanced in his profession and has rendered most valuable aid to his fellow townsmen, by reason of his highly developed skill and his comprehensive understanding of the scientific principles of medicine and surgery.

In 1904 Dr. Campbell was united in marriage to Miss Esther Scott, who was born in Paisley, Ontario, and there pursued her education. They have one child, Jean, who was born in 1908 and is now in school. The parents hold membership in the Presbyterian church and Dr. Campbell is also a member of the Masonic fraternity, loyally following the teachings of the order as he goes in and out among his fellowmen. His real recreation comes from mountain climbing and he gets the greatest enjoyment out of making the difficult ascent of the Rocky mountains. The major part of his time and energy, however, is given to his profession. He has taken postgraduate work in New York and in Rochester, Minnesota, and further keeps in touch with advanced professional thought and progress through his membership in the Alberta Medical Society and the Canadian Medical Association. Thoroughness has ever characterized his study and he is keenly

41 Cobden Sun "Seventy Five Years Ago" column in apr 7 2004 paper April 11, 1929 paper Word was received by Richard du Manior of Westmeath, from Bayeaux, Fran ce that his father, Raymond Thilant Le Chanoine, Count du Manoir De Juay e, had died in Paris at the age of 77, on Mar 15, and in the same ma il it is reported he also received the official news that he was rightf ul heir to the title of Count.

He practiced from the home on the corner of Truelove and John St. which had served as a doctor's office for many years, including Doctors Stewart, Higginson, Ritchie and Faught. Dr. Willoughby died on 15 Apr 2003 in Ottawa as a result of injuries sustained in a car accident.  WILLOUGHBY, Dr. Henry Wells 'Harry' (I26189689)
 
49 Fay Bennett took an early retirement in 2012 from a career in health care spanning 33 years. She graduated from Queen?s University with a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy and worked in that profession in both the hospital and home care sectors providing direct service and later as manager of therapy and case management services.

Fay is married and has two daughters. She thoroughly enjoys spending time with her two granddaughters. Fay grew up in Cobden and has lived her entire life there, except for 4 years in Kingston during university years and 3 years in Renfrew when she and her husband Earl moved to be closer to work locations. However, the draw back home to Cobden was too strong!

Fay's interest in family history began at a young age. The Sunday afternoon outings and long weekend trips with her parents usually consisted of, or ended in, a visit to a relative(s). On the journey to and fro, her parents would point out farms or homes that had previously been owned by a close or very distant family member. By high school years, she was recording the genealogical data she had gleaned from these visits. Her interest in preserving family history has culminated in the authoring of a number of books, research aids and articles, as well as assisting other budding genealogy buffs in producing their own family history.

Fay has been a member of many Ontario based genealogical groups over the years and has served on the executive for the Upper Ottawa Valley Genealogical Group in a number of capacities. Recently, she has been volunteering with The Whitewater Historical Society, documenting the history of Cobden Businesses & Buildings as well as serving as volunteer archivist. She has also completed some formal training in genealogical studies. Fay has also volunteered on a number of Board of Directors as well as executives of various organization and is currently a member of the Board of Directors for Lanark Renfrew Health and Community Services.

Fay has delighted in the additional time to focus on genealogy since retirement and has finally had the opportunity to launch & continually add to this website.

The purpose of FaysGenealogy.Com is to:
1. Share family history information and photographs with family and fellow researchers
2. Connect with researchers interested in families in the Whitewater Region (Ross & Westmeath Townships, Cobden) who would like to share information, documents and photos
3. Create an electronic photo archive of early Ross and Westmeath Township families

If you would like to share information, comment on the website (please do!), provide documents or photos for the website or request information, please email Fay at: faygen@nrtco.net
