Show Details Shared Note: - From an email from a lady named Carolann at Walton Memorial Church in Oakville, Ontario:

10 Oct 2006. Hi David: Sorry I took so long to get back to you - it has been a busy time, Thanksgiving and all. I am going to type what is written in a history book of Walton Church in the year 2000. Excerpt:

"The first structure was a small frame Methodist Church built in 1850 - The small church served the community continuously from its construction in 1850, but by 1912 it was inadequate for the growing congregation and Sunday School. Mrs. Emmanual Walton was teacher of the primary class and her husband, Emmanuel, had recently retired as superintendent of the Sunday School. Emmanuel and his father, Wallis Walton, had both served as trustees of the early Methodist Church. It is believed that Mrs. Emmanuel Walton initially proposed that her husband, Emmanuel, and his brothers, George of Toronto ‎(could be Scarborough!)‎ and Watson of Hamilton, build a church in memory of their father, Wallis Walton. Plans for the building were drawn by George Burgess, a Toronto contractor, and Mr. Joseph Cooey, brother-in-law of the Waltons, supervised construction of the brick building during the summer of 1913.

The men of the congregation gave freely of their time and labour during the construction of the church, but since the Walton family paid all the bills, other members of the church never knew the actual cost of the project. It is sad that Mr. Emmanual Walton did not see his dream completed; he passed away a few days before the cornerstone was to be laid. The unfortunate death of Joseph Cooey's wife ‎(a Walton)‎ kept most of the Walton family from attending the official opening of the new church on January 4, 1914. Mrs. Emmanuel Walton presented a brass key to Paster Boyd to commemorate the event. The name, "Walton Memorial Methodist Church" was created as a testament to its builders. The Hamilton Conference sent formal thanks to the Walton Brothers for their gift of such an impressive building." In 1925 Walton Memorial became part of the United Church of Canada."
