Notes for PETER O'BRIAN:
The O'Brian wharf: An 1863 deed reveals that Peter O'Brian acquired lot 3 from Helen Coffin. Thomas (1896) and Antoine Mandeville (1936) describe him as a barrister who later became a judge. The rectangular L- shaped O'Brian wharf is shown on a map found in Belden's Historical Atlas of the Counties Stormont Dundas Glengarry, Prescott-Russell. The O'Brian wharf is also shown on a wall map of 1881 at the L'Orignal Land Registry Office. Peter Obrian's son Colin who was a lawyer and eventually a judge in l'Orig
inal, was a business partner of John Cameron the owner of the Hawkesbury Millen Co. in the 1880s according to Thomas(1896). The wharf was in use until 1900. The O'Brian family kept the lot until the 1930s.

He was born May 29, 1787 in Vermont, U.S.A., and died September 9, 1865 in Victoria Mills, Quebec, CANADA.
Notes for CHARLES WATERS:
October 1827 Charles Waters (1st) held a Lieutenant's Commission in Company Number 4, 1st Prescott Regiment of Militia. His name also appears in 1832. Although he did not take part, his commission was stripped from him after the Rebellion. Andrew McMurtry
Charles Waters was a member of Parliament for Prescott and Russel during the Rebellion of Upper Canada 1837-1838. He was a very religious Baptist. His birth date is also listed as June 1, 1787, possibly due to the calender change?
There are letters from Charles to Robert Baldwin, leader of the Moderate Reformers and co- Prime Minister L. H. LaFontaine, it is believed that he was also friends with Louis Joseph Papineau, leader of the Lower Canada Rebellion. Before Papineau fled to the U.S., he went to Charles in VanKleek Hill where he hid for a few days until he could get organized. Charles served on the Seventh Committee on Grievance chaired by McKenzie.
Charles Waters became a member of the Upper Canada Legislative Assembly in 1834 and was on of three members on a committee that wrote the Seventh Committee Report on Grievances, which led to the Rebellion of Upper Canada in 1837. He was a moderate Reformer and did not take part in the revolt. Information from Andrew McMurtry

vii. MARSHALL SPRING BIDWELL WATERS16, b. 1835, Ontario, CANADA; m. JULIA SULLIVAN, December 7, 1868, Alymer, Quebec, CANADA; b. 1845, Quebec, CANADA.
Notes for MARSHALL SPRING BIDWELL WATERS:
Bidwell went to India or South Seas as a Missionary. It is possible that he was named after a very prominent Reform speaker Marshall S. Bidwell. (In 1822 the Family Compact secured the passing of a law to disqualify the elder Bidwell, whose opposition in the assembly had angered them, from being elected to that body. They also tried -- for a short time, indeed, successfully to extend the disqualification to his more celebrated son, Marshall S. Bidwell, afterwards speaker of the assembly. At the general elec
tion of 1824 a majority of the members elected were of the popular, or Reform, party.) this passage is from the book "The History of the Dominion of Canada, W. H. P. Clement, Toronto: William Briggs, 1897".
Sources indicate that Charles Waters was a friend of Marshal Spring Bidwell, who was Speaker of the House in 1835, when Charles Waters was elected. He did indeed name his son after the acknowledged Leader of the Reform Party and man he admired. (Andrew McMurtry)
