To be fair, I should acknowledge assistance given to me by everyone in Niagara Township. Everywhere I turned during my research in the summer of 1967, township people enthusiastically helped in every way possible.
Many were very close to my research work. I would, in particular, like to thank Mrs. Jean Huggins, of Queenston, George Carr, of St. David's, and the township's clerk-treasurer, Douglas Pritchard, for their interest and work on my behalf. Township council deserves credit for inspiring me in several ways, and Reeve Fred S. Goring, in particular, was helpful in directing me to an abundance of material. The staff at the Ontario Archives, and particularly Miss Jessie Jackson, were always co-operative and helpful. Mrs. M. Stirling, Mr. and Mrs. Bob Grimwood, the staff at the Vineland experiment station, Harold H. Usher, Lloyd G. Brittain, Bert King and Rev. R. S. Colebrook all deserve special mention for their efforts on my behalf. I hope that I have not inadvertently forgotten others.
For pictures, I am indebted to Mrs. Wilfred Stewart, Miss Clara M. Sandham, Mrs. J. Henry Freel, The Jockey Club, W. Herbert Kribs, Mrs. Pearl E. Cudney, George Seibel, Clifford Marsh, Mrs. George Snyder, Mrs. Evelyn Brown, George Jerman, Miss Lorene Stirling, Miss V. Onslow and many of those already mentioned.
