Beer, Lela Vanessa (I2)
 
3 " ILa Beer looked like Maggie Whetstone when she was little" according to Edna Christmass. "He mother said that she looked like her youngest sister, when she was a little girl." June 8, 1948. Whetstone, Maggie (I177)
 
4 "According to 'Betty' O Carroll (1916-1999) John Talbot came from Killarney. She once wrote that the house he lived in has long gone. The family that owned the land in 1994 were called Giles. There is a connection with Aglish which is in the barony of Magunihy in Killarney. There is an old Protestant Church in Aglish with a Talbot tomb. Mike Talbot searched the grave yard but could not find the tomb. There is a lot of really old weather beaten tombs there and the making would have be worn away. Aglish is situated on North-East side of the River Laune and on the road from Killarney to Milltown. In 1837 it contained 1,901 inhabitants. It was described in Lewis's Topographical Dictionary of Ireland that year that the greater part of the land is of the best quality and chiefly under tillage, and the system of agriculture has been greatly improved within the last few years. There was however about 100 acres of bog.

"There is a suggestion that John Talbot could have been a Church of Ireland clergy man. James O'Carroll (Betty's son) is still researching this fact. In any case John Talbot would have had to farm to make a living for his family and children. Betty established that he did farm at Lisanearly and later for a short time at Annagh near Blennerville (outside Tralee). He settled at Ballymacthomas for over 60 years. It is situated five miles from Tralee on the Killarney Road. Betty confirmed that he is mentioned in the Tithe Applotment books of the 1820's. The Tithe Applotment books were compiled between 1823 and 1837 in order to determine the amount which occupiers of agricultural holdings should pay in tithes to the Church of Ireland (the Protestant church was established by the state until 1871). There is a manuscript book for almost every parish, giving the names of occupiers, the amount of land held, and the sums to be paid in tithes. Records are in Belfast and some in Dublin in the National Archives.

"John Talbot was also mentioned in the Griffin Valuation of Ireland in the 1850's. Ireland s Valuation office conducted the first survey of property ownership in Ireland from 1848 to 1864. This survey became known as "Griffiths Valuation" after Richard Griffith who was the director of the office at that time. The survey was used to determine the amount of tax each person should pay towards the support of the poor within their poor law union. This involved determining the value of all privately held lands and buildings in rural as well as urban areas to figure out the rate at which each unit of property could be rented year after year. The resulting survey was arranged by barony and civil parish with an index to the townlands appearing in each volume. The Griffith's Valuation can be used as an excellent census substitute for the years after the Great Famine as the censuses prior to 1901 were destroyed.
It is suggested that he is buried in Killarney Heights.

"Historians of late Victorian Ireland, duly acknowledged in a book by Four Court Press on Newspapers and Nationalism: the Irish provincial press, 1850-1892 here, tell us that the rural population of Ireland was well educated: between 1851 and 1911 (on the evidence of the census) the percentage of the population over five years of age which claimed that in that time those able to read rose from 53% to 88%. So there were plenty of the ordinary people who were able to read and write. John Talbot would have been aware of the Irish rebellion in 1798 and as a Church of Ireland man I wonder what he did during the war? The pre-Famine Social Order (The Ruling Economy) The Census returns and other Government enquiries in the 1800's showed that Ireland's poor was suffering from heavy dependence on one crop the potato. The industrial revolution had not reached Ireland other than in the North. The cottage industries could not compete with the new factories of England and Europe. 45% of the population lived in dire poverty. The potato sustained the poor. It was introduced to Ireland in the 16th Century by Sir Walter Raleigh. It was easy to grow even in poor soil conditions. It grew abundant crops and was full of vitamins. Ironically before the famine the population were the healthiest in Europe due to the nutritional value of the potato (vitamins under the skin of the vegetable). There had been famine in Ireland before as well as Canada and Germany with the potato blight but they did not have the devastating effect that the Great Hunger had." -- Michael James Talbot, Birmingham, England.

Leatherdale, Alvin Clark (I3)
 
24 At 7 years old (1868), drove horses for the old Earl - Lord Tarrington (Irish), and by the time he came to Canada - he was the chief hedge trimmer of Elvaston Castle (1913). The Chamber of Commerce of Sharlow, England had bought the castle, in 1943. The beautiful groomed hedges and bushes are still there (1983). He died in 1928.

George bought a house in Sharlow, except for Jack (born at grandmother's house) other children were born there.

Keith Hart claims he died May 30, 1928, not March 30, 1928

Letter from John Hart to Mrs. A. Leatherdale (Lela) - June 25, 1961
- refers to a sash that Lela had that would be his "Dad's club sash - I am not sure, but I think he belonged to the Odd Fellows Club, and every Whitsuntide Monday, they all met, had a band, and marched around the village of Turnditch, and Windley and use to stop and play tunes at all the Big bugs Home and collect all the money they could to help the club along. It was a sick club, if a member was sick, his doctor was paid and the member received some pay. There was no social security in those days. No unemployment pay, as now the people today whine and shout. It they only knew it that most of them are lucky and rich, to what it was in the old days."

GEORGE HART Story - Settlers of the Hills and Beyond, pg. 484, by Eileen Verna (Beer) Talbot (his granddaughter) published by Lake Alma History Book, Box 222, Lake Alma, Saskatchewan, First printing 2000; printed and bound in Canada by Friesens Corporation, History Book Division, Altona, Manitoba R0G 0B0, Canada.

George Hart was born in Elvaston, Derbyshire, England on July 18, 1861. He married Mary Ann Lomas in 1883 and bought a house in the village of Shardlow, England. They raised seven children. George, Mary Ann and some of the family (Richard, Sarah) moved to Canada in 1913 to Lorlie, SK. George worked on the railroad track there for a while, but they wanted to homestead, so in 1914 their son John (who had come to Canada in 1907) helped them load up and ship their effects (horses, cattle, chickens, etc.) to Radville and to haul everything to the homestead on NW 33-3-18-W2.

Son Richard filed on SE 4-4-18-W2, next to Roy Beer's (my father) land NE 33-03-18 and kitty corner to his father's homestead. His homestead was never proved up because when war was declared he enlisted in the army and was killed at the front line on July 5, 1917. He is buried in a military cemetery in France. His name is on the memorial cairn in Radville, SK.

John stayed with his parents and farmed until 1925. His mother passed away on May 3, 1925. John then moved to his own land, one mile east of his father's land. As he grew older, he moved to the Radville Marian Home, until he passed away December 1, 1976.

George farmed until 1928 when he went back to England, planning to bring another daughter back with him to Canada. He died there of a heart attack and is buried in Breadsall Cemetery in Derbyshire, England. The daughter never did come to Canada (Jane). Wilfred Roy Beer, who married his daughter (my mother) Sarah Hart, took over my grandfather George Hart's farm, in 1928. (picture of George Hart in 1927, out west, pg. 1927).

DUBUC PIONEER LAID TO REST - newspaper clipping at his death, original in Scrapbook - Isabel Talbot

Funeral Services for the late Fredrick Norman Talbot, who passed away in Esterhazy hospital on Wednesday, August 19 at the age of 76 years were held in the Dubuc United Church on Friday, August 21. (1953)

Fred Talbot, lived in Ontario then moved to Dubuc, Saskatchewan. Mr. Talbot was born on October 17, 1876 (1877? - Freedhome District history) on a farm, at Eramosa, Wellington County in Ontario and came west to Moosomin in 1897, where he farmed in a small way. He moved to Dubuc and took up a homestead in 1903 (filed for in Moosomin Land Titles Office). A few years later Fred's brother , Arthur, came to homestead near Dubuc, too.

In 1907, he married Christina Watson. The Watsons, Tina's parents moved in 1909, to Nakusp, British Columbia. Fred and Christina rented their farm to Jim Owens, and also moved near to Nakusp.
In 1909, they moved to Kamploops, British Columbia, and worked for the Hudson Bay Co. there until 1912 when the family returned to Dubuc where they have since resided. The Talbots became lonesome for the prairies and returned to their farm in 1934. They continued to farm until 1944, when their son, Norman, took over the farm and they moved to Dubuc. Both Mr. and Mrs. Talbot took an active part in the Dubuc United Church and other community activities.

Mr. Talbot was an ardent worker in the Methodist Church in Ontario and served as choir leader and leader of the Epworth League. He served on the United Church board in Dubuc for years and was also a trustee of Freedhome School Board.

Fred was a friend to all who knew him and was always ready and willing to help to the utmost of his ability to further the interests of the community. He will be sadly missed by everyone who looked forward to his cheery smile and friendly word of greeting.

Funeral Services were conducted by Rev. Donald Mayne, who paid tribute to the sterling character of Mr. Talbot as a devoted father and husband. The choir by special request sang his favorite hymn "Blest Be the Tie That Binds." The masses of beautiful flowers offered their message of sympathy to the bereaved widow, the two daughters Mrs. John Carke (Sarah) of Whitewood and Mrs. Stella Tissington of Grande Prairie and Norman Talbot of Dubuc. Seven grandchildren and 12 brothers and sisters are left to revere his memory.

Pallbearers were all old friends: Mr. Dan McAlpine, William McQuitty, William Owens, Norman Nicholson, Theodore Simle and Duncan McIntyre.

Interment was in Dubuc United Church cemetery. Funeral arrangements were in the hands of Lorrance Larsen of Esterhazy.

27 Bier Family Crest - It is a sheild with a diagonal series of blue stripes (going from upper right to lower left). This usually indicates the sons or grandsons of the original sheild bearer. In the center is a bear, walking to the left and facing left.

A bear is also a symbol of high wealth (but not royalty) and the earlier Bier family may have been wealthy land owners as well as bier makers.

Side note: Keeping the spelling of "Bier" would have been nice, but in an English speaking country the meaning of bier in English is the rails that a coffin sits upon at a wake or funeral service, so the name was changed.
