  • Note*: circa 1900; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Torrence McGillis came to Canada from Ireland in 1841. He had one son, Henry McGillis. Henry McGillis had 2 sons - Fred McGillis and Beecher McGillis (my Grandfather). Beecher McGillis and his Dad, Henry, owned farms side by side on the Telephone road about one kilometer east of highway 30. This highway goes out of Brighton to Campbellford. both farms almost went as far as the spring from which Brighton got her water. Mother was born to Beecher and his wife Emma Jane McGillis in 1895 on that farm. My Grandparents, Beecher and Emma Jane are buried in Mount Hope Cemetery in Brighton. Torrence died in Montana but it was too expensive to have his body brought back for burial but his son, Henry, had his name put on his tombstone in Waite's Cemetery which is about a kilometer west of where Everett Minaker was born at the south end of Waite's road. The tombstone is decorated with Irish Shamrocks." this text given to me by Norman Bastin after History Open House Feb 2013, due to connection to the Lighthouse.11

Beecher McGillis and his Dad, Henry, owned farms side by side on the Telephone road about one kilometer east of highway 30. This highway goes out of Brighton to Campbellford. Both farms almost went as far as the spring from which Brighton got her water. Mother was born to Beecher and his wife Emma Jane McGillis in 1895 on that farm. My Grandparents, Beecher and Emma Jane are buried in Mount Hope Cemetery in Brighton. Torrence died in Montana but it was too expensive to have his body brought back for burial but his son, Henry, had his name put on his tombstone in Waite's Cemetery which is about a kilometer west of where Everett Minaker was born at the south end of Waite's road. The tombstone is decorated with Irish Shamrocks." this text given to me by Norman Bastin after History Open House Feb 2013, due to connection to the Lighthouse.4
