Julian Chisolm by Edith Chisolm
Julian Chisolm was born March 2nd, 1905 at Sheguiandah. His father was Alonzo Chisolm and his mother was Lily Spry. To this marriage were born three children. Faye, Julian (Jule) and an infant who died when very young. Jule's mother died when he was two and one-half years old and he and Faye came to live with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. James Spry, and two uncles, James and Alfred Spry. In 1912 Alfred Spry married Lily Snow. James Spry never married, but lived on the homestead with his parents. Grandmother Spry died in 1914 and Grandpa Spry died in 1921. Jule and Faye made their home with their Uncles and Aunts until they were married.
Jule went to the first Public School built in Rockville and after hefinished school he worked for his uncles on the farm, Lot 22 and 23 Township of Bidwell.
Jule Chisolm and Edith Tustian of Billings Township were married at Little Current in 1932 with no frills or fuss and lived with the Srpys for the first two years; then building a house of their own - at least a frame completed and a kitchen and bedroom. As time went on they gradually finished rooms as our family grew our home grew too.
Alfred, Lily and Jim started a tourist camp in 1927 and as years went by Jule and I worked with them and finally took over the business,which had grown from two cottages when we were married, to nine cottages. Much time and hard work went into this business and although we throroughly enjoyed the work and all the wonderful people we met all through the years, and made many life-long friends. In 1967 we felt thatit was time to make a change, the demand was getting greater for better accommodations; the decision was made to sell - not as a camp but to private families, so contacted people who had been coming to Manitouhaven many years and now have nine wonderful families owning our cottages and they, as well as we, are very happy with the change. The summer of 1968 was the last year to operate as a camp. We still have the Lodge of which part was the log house built by the Spry grandparents and we live in it during the summer and still continue to do baking on order, which is very nice work for summer work.
Our family numbered four, Richard Alfred, Julian Spry, Barbara Lily and James Grant. All our family had good health except our eldest son Richard who became a diabetic when he was twelve years old, but with diet and insulin and a few trips to the hospital grew up and lived a fairly normal life.
In 1951 he married Jean Bailey of Evansville and they had three children, Marilyn, Julianne and Alfred. Dick continued to doctor but finally his health failed and he passed away Jan. 6th, 1967 in his 34th year. Dick and family lived on a farm in Snowville.
Julian Jr. married Doris Howard in 1952 and have two children Brock and Ruth.
Barbara married Orion Aelick in 1953 and lived on a farm, Honora Bay. In 1965 they moved to Burwash where Orion works at Ontario Industrial Farm as a guard. They had five children, Michael, Carol, Cheryl, Kevin and Nancy. Carol died in 1956 age 1 month. Cheryl was born deaf as a result of her mother having German Measles during early pregnancy. Cheryl attends the school for the deaf in Belleville and seems very happy there.
James married Helen Cosby in 1957 and just couldn't list the number of places lived or types of work done. They have two daughters, Kimberley and Bonnie Sue. They have built a nice new home in Espanola and James is on the Police Force there. This makes a total of eleven living grandchildren.
Jule was councilman of Howland Township for eighteen years and served as Reeve for two years.
When our children were small we would travel with horse and cutter over the bluff to West Bay and on to Billings to visit my parents Mr. and Mrs. Richard Tustian and I always drew a sign of relief wehn we were upand down those hills.
I remember once when Dick was small we drove with team and buggy to Long Bay to visit Bernard and Elaine Felix - such a long trip - now we scarcely see a horse - just cars and snow machines.
We had many nice trips - three times to Western Canada to visit the Sterling relatives (Mrs. Sterling was a Spry) and have had some nice trips to the sunny south to escape some of the cold and snow of Manitoulin.
It's nice to travel and see other parts of the country - the prairies, the Rockies are worth seeing, but it is always so nice to return home safely, Home is Best.

Biography of Mr. (Jule) Julian Alonzo Chisholm, Sr. - 1905 - 1991
Jule Chisholm was a good man - who showed in his own quiet way his real caring for his family, community and church. He lived a good and long life.
Julian Alonzo Chisholm was born in Sheguiandah on March 2, 1905, the son of Alonzo and Lily Chisholm. Jule's mother died when he was only 2 years old, so he went to live with his maternal grandparents, James and Sarah Spry on their farm in Rockville. The farm and family home on the western shore of Lake Manitou was always home for Jule for all but the last year and a half - but even then his heart stayed out at Rockville. It was there that he grew up with his grandparents, his brother and two step-brothers, and his uncles Jim and Alfred. Jule attended school at Rockville; but soon took up working alongside his uncles on the farm.
It was likely in the Spry family home that Jule first saw a young lady named Edith Tustian who had come with the Billings United Church choir to help celebrate the opening of the new Rockville United Church. It was later on though crokinole parties that Jule introduced himself to Edith and asked if he could call on her. She said yes. They were married in the United Church manse in Little Current on January 6, 1932 by Rev. Mr. Martin, and they returned to make their home in Rockville, with Lily Spry Snow, who now lives in the Manitoulin Lodge in Gore Bay in her 105th year.
When I asked Edith about Jule - "He was a loving husband" she told me. We were partners in marriage, business and in life. We worked hard for there was always so much to do on the farm with the livestock and the turkeys, and the field of peas! We were always busy. Edith also remembered her mother's words, "Don't ever let the sun set on an argument" and for Jule and Edith it never did, not that there were many occasions that they did argue. Although, it seemed as it they might have been some disagreement over Jule's frequent buying of new cars. Their first she remembered as a 1930 Ford Roadster with a rumble seat, for only $695. Jule even bought a blue 1958 or 1959 Edsel, which he and Edith drove on a trip to Western Canada.
Together, Jule and Edith operated the Manitou Haven Lodge on the shore of Lake Manitou, providing accommodations in the nine cottages and 3 meals a day for many a summer visitor.
Jule was active and respected in the community. He served on Howland Township Council for 18 years, was Reeve for 2 years.
Jule was also a lifelong member of the United Church of Canada, through the congregation at Rockville and then Green Bay. Both he and Edith regularly attended Sunday worship driving over from Rockville to Green Bay. Jule served as Steward and Elder providing leadership in the congregation.
Jule sought to live out the love of Jesus Christ in his life, showing love and respect for people, and especially his family. He had a gentle sense of humour and liked to tease the kids. He never seemed to get angry, even in the most difficult or embarrassing situations. Once, his grand-daughter Jule-Ann asked Jule to teach her to drive. There was a narrow road down to the lake with circle at the end to turn around. They took a chance on that narrow road - but even a bigger on taking another family member's prized baby - a shiny green GMC shortbox pickup. "because if anything happens to that trucků." Well, Jule and Jule-Ann got down to the end of the road alright, and proceeded to turn around. As Jule-Ann maneuvered the truck around, "BANG", they'd hit a tree. She looked over at her grand-father who said quietly, "Just a little more to the left."
Jule took great pleasure in his family, and enjoyed their yearly reunion at Thanksgiving.
In early September, 1991, Jule took a serious heart attack and was admitted to hospital in Mindemoya. Day by day, friends and family members came and sat with him and helped him as they could. It was there he died on Friday, September 13, 1991.
Jule was survived by his wife, Edith, and his sons James (and his wife Helen), Julian, Jr., of Rockville, his daughter Barbara Aelick (and her husband of Sault Ste. Marie), his daughter-in-law, Jean and eleven grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren. Jule was predeceased by his son Dick in 1967.
Jule Chisholm had strong sense of home, out in Rockville with his family and the land he had known all his life.

Julian (Jule) Alanzo Chisholm Sr.
In loving memory of a special father, grandpa and great grandfather who left us September 13, 1991.
God knew that he was suffering
That the hills were hard to climb
So he closed his weary eyelids
And whispered "Peace be thin."
Away in the beautiful hills of God,
By the valley of rest so fair,
Some day, we know not when,
We will meet our loved one there.
Sadly missed and lovingly remembered by Jr., Brock, Brenda, Stephen and Stacey Lynn Chisholm. Ruth and Rafeena Mohammed.

In loving memory of our grandparents, Lulu Howard, october 1988; Jule Chisholm, September 13, 1991; Edith Chisholm, October 5, 1991; Lily Spry, November 1991.
Though their smile is gone forever
And their hands we cannot touch
Still we have so many memories
Of the ones we loved so much
Their memory is our keepsake
With which we'll never part,
God has them in his keeping
But we hold them in our hearts.
