Addie Eliza Johnson was born February 17, 1852 at Port Hope. She married Reginald Newson Fowler, born Oct. 17, 1847, on June 18, 1873 in Blenheim11 after having become engaged in Port Hope. Joseph Shipley was the presiding minister and Lucy C. Johnson and Peter Powell were the witnesses. According to the marriage certificate, Reginald was a resident of Felenon Twp., Victoria Co.
They lived for a time in Sturgeon Lake District, Fenelon Twp., Victoria Co. where their first four children were born.

Reginald's father had come to Canada on the same ship that the Lee family did and had settled in the Lindsay area.

They moved to Proton Twp., Grey Co.12, where they lived on Concession 15 for a short time - Willis was born here. January 15, 1881, Reginald bought Lot 28, Concession 11 from John McQuarrie for $1500. Here seven more children were born.

Perhaps I should give further credit to Helen Rogers and the good luck that led to her. At some point in researching Alden, I'd found a newspaper article that referred to Addie Eliza of Dundalk. Dundalk doesn't appear on modern maps. Eventually came the first stroke of luck. I stumbled at some point on a reproduction of a 100-year-old map of Ontario and found Dundalk, somewhat south and east of Parry Sound. Later, after visiting friends near Owen Sound, we went for a drive toward where Dundalk may once have been. As I drove down a country road, I saw a mailbox with the name Fowler on it. My hopes rose sharply. I continued to the corner to turn around and saw an old cemetery. The sign said "Dundalk Cemetery". It was a small cemetery and I took a quick look. I immediate found Addie's grave and those of several others. I drove back to the farm I'd seen and went in. The people were extremely busy, getting ready to move into town, but we talked briefly. They were, indeed, descendants of Addie and Reginald and gave me Helen Rogers' address in B.C., indicating that she was the one that had researched the family's history. Subsequently, Helen provided to me photo-copies of several pictures, marriage certificates and notes on family members.

Following are the several children:
Alden 1874 - 1863
Lawrence 1875 - 1961
Gertrude 1877 - 1951
Martin 1878 - 1940
Willis 1880 - 1958
Fred 1882 0 1944
M. Edith 1884 - 1962
Edna Jane 1886 - 1948
Lewis Lee 1889 - 1970
Arthur G. 1890 - 1932
Chester Johnson 1893 - 1984
Bertha Harriet 1897 - 1974

January 9, 1891, Reginald bought Lot 29 for $1925 and it was added to the homestead. Lot 28 contained 102 acres, of which about 35 were cleared, plus a log cabin and a log barn. Lot 29 contained 99 acres. There were log buildings on the lot but very little cleared land.

The log house had a frame addition but on in 1891, then in 1902 the log part was replaced by a brick home. The telephone was but in about 1910. In 1941 a bathroom was installed and in 1948 electricity was a welcome addition.

Reginald died June, 1929 and Addie Eliza February 19, 1930.

Chester took over this farm in 1923 and his youngest farm, Mervin, in 1962. In April, 1988, the farm was sold and the Merv Fowler family was in the midst of moving when we called on them.

We are immensely indebted to the Fowler's for their generous welcome and for their thoughtfulness in contacting Helen Fowler Rogers who has provided so much information about Alden, Mary Ann and the Fowler line.(Source: Johnson genealogy by Elden Johnson - http://www.ole.net/~maggie/antrim/johnson.htm)
