  • Death*: 20 February 1871; 56 Wellesley St. E., Toronto, York Co., Ontario; "Kane’s artistic output appears to have been curtailed after the publication of Wanderings of an Artist. While he retained a studio on King Street East until 1864 and continued to be identified in the Toronto city directory as an artist, his career had plateaued, with little further production. It is believed that Kane’s eyesight had started to fail, and there is mention of his having injured his spine in a fall in 1870. He died in
    Toronto on February 20, 1871, of a “liver complaint,” which has led to speculation that Kane suffered from alcoholism, but this has not been confirmed. He is buried in St. James Cemetery in Toronto. from "Paul Kane: Life and Work" by Arlene Gehmacher, pg. 11 -

  • Note*: 1832; Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Went to Cobourg to work for Conger" per GEDCOM of PK (pkane@nucleus.com) July 28 2016. (Paul Kane had become an apprentice with Wilson S. Conger, furniture maker in Cobourg.)1
  • Note: 1834; Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Formative Years; Paul Kane was born on September 3, 1810, in Mallow, County Cork, Ireland, the sixth of eight children (four boys, four girls) of Michael Kane (1776–1851) and Frances Loach (1777–1837). Kane was about ten years old when, along with his parents and several siblings, he immigrated to Canada, where they settled in York (Toronto) around 1819. Michael Kane, originally a soldier in the British army, made his living in Canada as a liquor merchant. Paul Kane’s talent for drawing showed itself early, and as a young adult he may have been mentored by Thomas Drury, the drawing master at Upper Canada College during 1830–33. But by that time Kane was already employed as a commercial artist, first as a furniture decorator (at Wilson S. Conger’s factory) and then in 1833 as a “coach, sign, and house-painter.” Throughout this period he continued to pursue fine art. In 1834, as an associate of the Society of Artists and Amateurs of Toronto, the first “official” art society in Canada, he exhibited nine works, mostly landscapes. Only two of these were originals; the rest were copies (including a copy of a work by Drury). In 1834 Kane moved to Cobourg, Ontario, one hundred kilometres east of Toronto. Kane may have worked for furniture maker F.S. Clench, whose daughter Harriet Clench (1823–1892) he would marry in 1853. In Cobourg he also developed his skills as a portraitist, perhaps making connections through Wilson Conger, his former employer, who had resided there since 1829 and had become involved in municipal affairs. Kane painted the local citizenry, including members of the Clench family." from "Paul Kane: Life and Work" by Arlene Gehmacher, pg. 4 -

  • Note: 1845; Toronto, York Co., Ontario; "By early 1843 Kanbe was back in the United States where he remained for the next two years, raising money to pay off debts and possibly to pay for a trip to the Northwest. In 1845 he returned to Toronto. Itinerant for almost nine years, Kane had barely set foot at home when, in June, he embarked upon his life project: to create a cycel of large studio paintings doucmenting the Aboriginal peoples and the landscape of Canada's West." from "Paul Kane: Life and Work" by Arlene Gehmacher, pg. 7 -

  • Note: May 1846; Canada; "HBC’s approval was critical for Kane’s project: it not only granted authorization but also facilitated his next trek. Beginning in late May 1846, he travelled by canoe, York boat, horse, and on foot across prairies, the subarctic, and mountains, with fur-trade brigades or with hired local guides. For over two years Kane travelled along HBC routes,
    venturing as far north as Fort Assiniboine and as far south as Fort Vancouver in the Oregon Territory, exploring that vicinity and northward on Vancouver Island." from "Paul Kane: Life and Work" by Arlene Gehmacher, pg. 8 -

Cory Clench homesteaded on 32-5-16. January 1st, 1886, Harry Lowe came to his cousin. Cory Clench.1887 Cory Clench and Fanny Clark married, Grace Putnam born Fanny, Cory's aunt came into the Ninette district as the widowed Mrs, Lowe in time to be known as "Granny Lowe". With her came her brothers. Freeman S. Clench and Cory, But this was after the other brother, William Carroll, had moved to BC, to partake in the CARIBOO GOLD RUSH and then had gone on to California and Honolulu, It was his sons, Cory and Bart, nephews of Granny Lowe, who were the first of the family to settle in this area. To their batch shack, located on the east side of the N. W. of 32-5-16 came the widow's son, Harry, in 1886, And later she followed him to the district. In 1887 Cory discarded his batch shack and moved to a most at- tractive site farther west in preparation for his marriage to Miss Fanny Charlotte Clark, Her family tree is equally as interesting as her husband's. Of English and Scotch descent, the Clarks were among the early settlers of Canada, Sergeant John Clark, who mar- ried a Charlotte Bussey of French descent, took part in the Battle of Queenston Heights and his son, Alex, in the Mackenzie Rebellion, It was this Alex Clark who headed the covered wagon caravan from Essex, Ontario, to the foothills of the Rockies and back to the Trees- bank district of Manitoba, Back at the farm 1 might help Harry in the field where he would be working with oxen, Or perhaps grandfather would be preparing for one of his shopping trips to Brandon and I might assist him in putting some grain in a sack. This he would sling across his back* It would be needed to pay for the merchandise he purposed buying. In the fall of 1913 Ralph and Lionel Clench, who were at the time attending Brandon Collegiate, one Friday after walking four miles to and from school, trudged all through the night to Ninette, just to equal, they said, the walking exploits of the old-timers, of which their father boasted
    In 1888 the Daroughs moved into a fine new home on the quarter of 32 in the Pelican Lake district The ruins of that house can still be seen surrounded by a sturdy shelter of trees. It was well loca- ted on the little ravine which afforded water for the cattle. Too of- ten when we live in the midst of history in the making we do not recognize it as such and destroy that which in later days would be considered valuable . When lumber was dear and hard to obtain, Mau- rice Clench tore down that excellent specimen of log building which might otherwise have stood for a hundred years. But, as he ex- plained, tenants had stored grain in it until they had broken the floor and some of this had sprouted in the basement making the whole place stagnant and maladorous. Then hordes and hordes of hateful rats took up residence there, so in the interests of healthful living he tore it down." per GEDCOM of PK (pkane@nucleus.com) July 28 2016.1
