This is a copy of a letter written to Ellen S. Scott by her Uncle Tom Garland. Ellen S. Scott, known to her family as Aunt Nell, was a sister of Matilda (Tillie) Scott Hallowell (Mrs. Peter J.) " North Gower, Ont., Nov. 22, 1912 "My Dear Niece: "In reply to your letter of the 6th, I would say, I am still in the land of the living and happy as if the d - l had me (as the saying goes.) "I haven't been foolish enough to marry yet, but, might sometime or perhaps never. "I am pleased to know you had a good time on your trip last summer and I think you are wise to take a good time, as that is about all we get out of this old world at best. I still sleep in my own house (when I am not traveling) and I take my meals in the hotel here in North Gower. I am not a very tidy housekeeper but there is no person to find fault with me, so I am all right. I think you made a mistake in not coming to Ottawa and vicinity, as we would all have been glad to see you. "Regarding where the Garlands came from, I will give you a short sketch of their history, that I got from my brother John sometime ago, and if it does not tire you, it may perhaps amuse you. "There was a Col. Wm. Garland who was colonel of a company of troopers or cavalry, during the war between the now United States of America and England. He belonged to Gen. Burgoyne's army, that was surrounded in a woods, near Saratoga, N.Y. and taken prisoners by Gen. Gates of the U.S. army. After the war was over Col. Garland went back to England with his General. The next step he took, was to engage with Lord Farnham (as land agent and manager of the Farnham estate) in the Province of Lemster, Ireland. Two sisters went over with him. They lived in dublin and never married. They had private means and were reported wello to do. The Colonel became possessed of quite an estate himself in Wexford Co., Ireland. He had three sons and he was able to settle them all on what they called free hold property. Grandfather (John) was settled in Killkenny Co. and had a good free hold farm and was well to do. "About 1817 the three brothers John, Tom and James started for America. Many of the U. E. Loyalists came to Canada at that time from the U.S. and I think there was a boom here on account of free grants of land, etc. Grandfather (John) came up the St. Lawrence river to between Three Rivers and Berthier, where he remained with his family of fifteen children, eight sons and seven daughters, for sometime (it must have been about a year.) Father (William) was then about ten years old and a French family fancied him, and kept him, after all the rest moved on up to where Ottawa now is built. He stayed there for two years and learned to speak French quite well. Grnadfather was offered the Sparks property (200 acres) for Forty Pounds. One year later Sparks bought it for Sixty Pounds and that is where most of Ottawa is now built. "Tom Garland also came up to the County of Carleton with his family. I remember his wife and some of his family and also himself. "James Garland remained in Newfoundland and connected himself with the fisheries there and his descendants are settled there and in the U.S. Some of them have been over to visit us several times in Goulburn. I remember one of them. He came several times to our house (when I was a boy) and brought us presents of boxes of cigars, etc., but our folks did not fancy them as they smoked pipes and liked them better. "Another one of them got to be Attorney-General of President Cleveland's cabinet etc., and snother was general of the Blackhorse Cavalry of the Southern Army. The building of the Rideau Canal commenced about 1824. Father was then about 19 years old and worked on the canal, where he helped to erect the first store and tavern build in Ottawa, which was built of logs of course. He got along well and got hold of some property on Rideau St. but let it drop out of his hands I suppose, thinking it would never amount to much. "Grandmother's name was Nellie Butler, I remember her well. The Butler family were fine specimens of men, larger even than the Garlands. The Garlands were tall, but not as stout as the Butlers. The Butlers were among the noblemen of their day, and some of them attended court, etc. One of them was a clergyman and preached before the King. The King had promised him a position (through Butler in court) but did not fulfill his promise so Butler took for his text "And The King's chief butler forgot poor Joseph Butler." "This is all I can think of now, but now you can see that Colonel Garland was an Englishman, but, after settling in Ireland and raising his family there we became Irish and were from the counties Wexford and Kilkenny. "There is a coat of arms belonging to the Garlands (as there is to most of the.

Jonathan Albert Scott

b. 25 February 1869, d. 8 October 1926
     Jonathan Albert Scott was born on 25 February 1869 at North Gower, Ontario, Canada.1 He was the son of William Scott and Mary Ann Garland. Jonathan Albert Scott was also known as Jack Scott. He married Lucy Ballangee on 9 March 1902.1 Jonathan Albert Scott died on 8 October 1926 at Dow City, Crawford Co., IA, at age 57.1 He was buried at Dow City Cemetery, Dow City, Crawford Co., IA.2

From an obituary:

John A. Scott Called Away to Eternal Rest

One of Dow City's prominent business men and citizens passed out of earthly relation at his home early last Friday morning. After more than two years of declining health "Jack" Scott, as he was universally known, sank into a rest free of all troubles common to those of this life. After consulting several doctors and specialists he made a trip to Iowa City where it was hoped that he had found relief for his troubles. After coming home, he gradually grew weaker until the end came.

Mr. Scott was a blacksmith and shoe maker and was one of the best in his trade. He was at one time mayor of the town and his influence always thrown in the direction of what he deemed to be right and just. His going has been lamented by many who knew his fearlessness and his steadfastness to friend.

The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at the M. E. church with Rev. B. F. Hamilton in charge of the services which were marked by simplicity and directness.

Six of his former associates, Mark Piersall, Zeph Fienhold, Mark Goddard, Ned Wilder, Wilbur Berry, and Ed Riddle acted as casket carriers and an octette composed of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Glassburner, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Dillenberger, Thomas Walters, Gene Wiggins, Mrs. Robt. Lusk, and Mrs. Dorris Griffin sang the appropriate selections.

Rev. Hamilton read the twenty-third Psalm and after prayer delivered a beautiful, thoughtful and impressive sermon.

He began by saying that he had been requested to give a plain and simple discourse. He paused long enough to say that a citizen of the town remarked of the man that no man Dow City ever had was so staunch a friend of law enforcement and respect for law and no better citizen ever lived in the town. That was the greatest eulogy that might be given to any man. Then he read his text, "Blessed are those that mourn for they shall be comforted." Thus he explained was the highest privilege of man to love and mourn. Mourning is but the flowing on of love even if the object of devotion is gone. And love still flows on even if one had gone. Friends may soften the wounds by kind words and acts but like the injury to the tree it may be healed over and hid but the wound remains. And this sorrow, he said, Christ has promised to help heal and soften and that in the quiet hours of the night he will cheer and comfort because he alone understands the heart and innermost thoughts of men. It is "Better to have loved and lost; than not to have loved at all" because love is the purifying factor in our lives. Love has a wealth of memories in hours of association, in hours of need, in hours of suffering; in the hours of accomplishment and in the companionship of devotion. Those who mourn some time, too, go on into the richer fuller to find the life of those gone before. Each must take up his life broken in the middle and while life seems different, it but grows into the waters of time. illegible on the shores of eternity. He then read this short history of the deceased,

"Jonathan Albert Scott, son of William and Mary Ann Garland Scott, was born near North Gower, Ontario, Canada, February 25, 2869. He moved with his parents to Dow City, Iowa in December of the same year. In 1890 he went to Chicago where he worked in the Pullman car shops for a few months. Later he went to Oregon where he remained for about three years. After this he returned to Dow City and continued his residence here until his death which occurred October 9th at 5:40 a.m. He was united in marriage to Lucy Ballengee, March 9, 1902. To this marriage were born four children; Donald Joseph who died in infancy, Mable Agnes, Ruth Evelyn and Howard Eugene. Beside his wife and children he is survived by four sisters, Mrs. Mary A. Hardy, Mrs. Sarah Lewis, Mrs. Tillie Hallowell and Ellen G. Scott, and one brother, Henry G. Scott. One sister and two brothers preceded him in death, Barbara A., James and William Garland Scott."

He was a member in the Modern Woodmen lodge. Interment was made in the Dow City cemetery.

Relatives attending the funeral from a distance were: Ellen Scott, Mapleton; E. E. Edwards and wife, of Armour, South Dakota, Miss Rosalia Scott, Marshaltown, Iowa; Jas. Scott and wife, Des Moines; and Garfield Rule, Ft. Dodge.

From a letter to the editor of the Manilla Times and Dow City Herald: "To the Editor of the Manilla Times and Dow City Herald. "I am renewing my subscription to the paper for another year. I always look for my paper and am glad to get news from home. I have been here four years. It has been a long hot summer, still is hot. Had a birthday not long ago (have had 93 of them). first thing I know I will be an old lady! I keep quite well, am not very active. Wish I could thank every one for my many nice cards and lettersw, but it is hard to write, have a sore finger. I have a very pleasant home and plenty of T.L.C. I spend quite a lot of time in my rocking chair, "wandering down memory lane," 93 years make a long one and many changes. My early life was spent in Nebraska. We had a sod house, the dirt floor would sometimes wear low in some places. One of my jobs was to patch the floor. I used the same recipe I used for mud pies! When we had company, us children, I and my brother had to wait. It fell to me to get a big weed on a paper fly brush and keep the flies away as they ate. No such thing as screens. Most always the best pieces of thee chicken would be gone. I can't imagine childen now doing that, and I am glad they don't. One morning a big snake fell through the roof right down on I and my sister's bed. I was not as scared as I would be now. The first year or two we were there my brother and I gathered buffalo bones and sold them for money for the fourth of July. They were shipped east and ground for fertilizer. I keppt my 75 cents a long time. for fuel of a winter we had a little coal to hold fire and the rest was cow chips. That was another job for me, to gather them. A poor fuel but better than none. I wonder what children will now have to remember as about all for them is T.V. and bicycles. We lived 30 miles from the Indian reservation. They decided to go on the war path and killed several settlers, we, along the rest went to twon for protection. The churches and school were open to settlers. The state militia came in and settled them. Well, my story gorws long, and like Tennysons brook in his poem, it rambles on, so I shall quite. I like florida but would not trade the corn fields for the oragne groves. Best wishes to you all, Lucy F. Scott 6012 6th St Tampa, Fla. 33611.

From the Mobile newspaper:



"Doris Bender, former director of the Mobile County Department of Human Resources for 33 years and First Lady of Mobile in 1973, died at her home Friday.



" `She really set the highest standards for public service and had a significant impact on thousands of people in the Mobile area' and throughout the state, said Erin Wheeler, the current director of Mobile County DHR.



"Miss Bender, a native of Mobile, retired in 1976 as director of what was then called the Mobile County Department of Pensions and Securities, and is now Department of human resources. At the time of her retirement, Miss Bender was supervising the disbursement of more than $11.5 million in aid and an $18.78 million food stamp program to those in need.



"She was quoted in a 1976 Press Register article as saying about her service as welfare director in her hometown, `I have loved every minute. Every day was a new day, and brought new challenges.'



"A 1976 editorial praised Miss Bender for providing leadership `both administrative and inspirational--that has made the Department of Pensions and Security here a model of both efficiency and service to the community...She carried out his awesome responsibility not only wit practical administrative efficiency but with genuine warmth and compassion.'



"Miss Bender was born in Mobile and received her elementary and high school education at Visitation Convent here. She received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Alabama and had graduate training in the field of social work at Tulane University and the University of Chicago.



"She served as director of the Mobile County Department of Human Resources form 1944 through 1976, and has worked in other areas of the state and on the staff of the Alabama Department of Human Resources.



"She was a member of St. Dominic's parish. "She was the first woman on the admissions committee of the University of South Alabama School of Medicine; the first woman member elected to the board of directors of First Southern Federal Savings and Load Association in Mobile; and the first woman member of the Spring Hill college board of trustees.



"She was the first president of the Alabama Association of County Directors of Pensions and Securities. She was also a leader in affirmative action, having appointed the first black social worker in a county department of Pensions and Security during her administration in the 1940s.



"Also during her administration, the first organized volunteer division in a county department of Pensions and Security was started in Mobile County. She was on the committee that developed the Alabama office of volunteerism, an agency of state government, and served on its board of directors.



"In addition, she had served on a variety of boards, including the Mobile county Chapter of the American Cancer Society, Mobile United, Altus Bank and the Mobile Public Library. She has served as president of the Alabama Conference of Social Work, Alabama Association of County Directors of Human Resources and Mobile business and Professional Woman's Club; as vice president of the American Public Welfare Association; was a faculty member at the University of Montevallo and Spring Hill College, and was a member of the Mobile Junior League.



"She received numerous honors, including the "Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice" Papal Medal of Honor bestowed by Pope John Paul II for her strong commitment to service and charity.



"She is survived by one brother, Dr. Theodore Jackson Bender Jr. of Mobile; nieces, nephews and other relatives.



"Mass of Christian Burial will be held Monday at St. Dominic's Catholic Church at 10 a.m. Interment will be at Magnolia Cemetery. Visitation will be Sunday from 5 to 7 p.m. at Radney Funeral Home, with rosary at 7 p.m.



"The family requests memorials be made to Catholic Charities, St. Dominic's Church, and Foster Care Endowment of the Mobile community Foundation at 100 St. Joseph St., Suite 416, Mobile, 36602."


Social Security records give her birth year as 1911, but some family records show 1912.
