Note on Husband: Peter DEGUERRE - shared note

In 1885 Peter published a family history of the Belfry family and recorded of himself and his wife that -

"For many years agriculture was his pursuit. Mrs. DeGuerre and her husband after a careful investigation of the Scriptures, came to have the faith of Prophets and Apostles, characterized in modern phraseologyas 'Christadelphian'. Their early home for three and a half years was on a farm a mile and a quarter east of Sharon. In the fall of 1848 this farm was sold, and they moved into the village of Queensville, where pump-making was the occupation (for a short time in company with Wm. Cane), and turning at the lathe. In September, 1849, they removed from the village to a farm three-fouths of a mile east of the village. In the fall of 1863 they removed to Toronto, and located in a house near the corner of Normal School square. Educational opportunities was an object. In 1864 they returned to the farm, having left others in charge awaiting their return. In 1871 a lumbering mill was built in North Victoria county, but the family remained on the farm. In the year 1886 they removedagain to Toronto, where they at present reside." The family returned to Queensville sometime before 1900.
