Prez s Message,Comings Goings, This past month we have welcomed three new members to our Society Judith Clapperton. Shane Lang and Rachel Gencey and we mourn the loss of a long time one. Lena Graham was a lady I ve known all my life and with her death it became very clear how. few remain who can give us a first hand account of the 1920 to 1940 era in the Newcastle area. In her youth I don t think Lena gave much thought to who her ancestors were but shortly after. her marriage to the late Fred Graham she lived for the better part of her live at Belmont the. Wilmot homestead, Lena was a driving force in terms of preserving the knowledge of what that property had been. and what it meant to the community throughout and prior to all the years she lived there But. Lena was not a Wilmot no connection whatsoever to the family She was a Kimball a family. at least as old in terms of New England connections as the Wilmots and older than the Wilmots. in terms of land ownership in Durham County Those are historical nit picking points and ones. Lena was possibly not aware of but she knew how long her family had been in this area and. knew her life was shaped and guided by 201 years of not only her own Durham County ances. tors but those of others in this community, Lena was a lady born in the first quarter of the 20thcentury but by the 21stcould probably have. you told the difference between a blackberry and a Blackberry That ability was to us who were. merely her acquaintances a good portion of her charm she had one foot firmly rooted in her. past the other in the present and her mind always looking to the future She will be greatly. missed by all who knew her,Leslie Wilson,Prez working on the Histori. cal Soc computer, Newcastle Village and District Historical Society Newsletter Issue 90 page 2.
The Passing of Lena Kimball Graham,by the editor, It was with much sadness that many members of this Society received the news of Lena s. passing As one of the old members I must relate back to the early days when we held our. meetings in Lena and Alf s kitchen at Belmont, Lena was one of our earliest Directors and has always been a strong supporter of the society. More recently whenever I had newsletters to deliver I looked forward to taking Lena s newslet. ter because I could be sure of a warm welcome and a genuine interest in the happenings of the.

Synopsis for Council Meeting Dramatisation, A chilly Monday in January 1856 and the first village of Newcastle council meeting is under. way before a large and somewhat unruly audience this at a time when hip flasks often did for. central heating, We meet the Reeve the Clerk and the worthy Councillors Anglicans United Union and Auld. Kirk Presbyterians in an age of zealous churchgoing their moral rectitude strengthened by the. sober sermons of the previous day But in spite of this or rather because of it the knives are. soon out over such contentious issues as tavern licensing and the famous Newcastle horse race. as temperance and propriety conflict with business interests While the battle rages within no. one can imagine there could be any outward disturbance since the Council Chambers remain. under the watchful eye of Elijah Zebulon Walbridge the town Bailiff Yet disturbance indeed. disaster does arrive and in the most unexpected form imaginable.
