Bethel Methodist Episcopal Church originated in 1871 and was located on a portion land given for a church and shed on Lot 26 6th Line, Eramosa Township now known as the Earl Hindley farm. The buildings were erected by bees, free-will labour, and offerings of material and money.

The church was painted brown and was soon noted as the Brown Church, although it was named Bethel and was one of three appointments on the Eramosa Circuit, the Stone Church and Mimosa Church were the sister churches. The parsonage was built at the Stone Church and the first minister was Rev. Findlay Malcolm Smith.

It continued until 1925, when it joined in Church Union with Mimosa Presyterians.

Then the Brown Church was sold to the United Church congregation in Hillsburg.

Before being moved to Hillsburg, a memorial service was held and Rev. John Little preached the last sermon.

During the 53 years of service the family names on the church roll included:

Leslie, Copeland, Skerritt, Cox, Thompson, Ching, Fletcher , Bailey, Ruddell, Bowby, Brown, Lutterel, Thatcher, Norris, Oakes, Cook, Coram, Flewelling, Nesbitt, Patterson, Foote, Campbell, Duffield

Household vermin have been problems for centuries, especially for city dwellers.

For a long time the main defense was provided by dogs and cats. By the 18th century, rat traps using a spring-loaded jaw and a baited trigger were in use, often set out by a professional exterminator. Rats seem to have been regarded as the most serious household menace.

As early as 1838 a U.S. Parent was issued to T. Kelly of Alexandria, Virginia, for an improved rat trap.

It was not until 1869 that the first U.S. Patent was issued for a mouse trap, to A.G. David of Watertown Conneticut.

Victor Chocker Mousetrap
Animal Trap Co. Lititz Pa
Made in U.S.A.

In 1901 this type of mousetrap could be purchased from The T. Eaton Co. Limited in Toronto, Canada or ordered from their catalogue for 6 cents each.

Photo from author’s collection
Most traps were based on the principal of spring loaded jaws. Some people, however, objected to removing the carcass from the trap; it might be bloody or putrescent, or bearing lice.

So live traps were devised, in which the animal was lured by means of bait, and the entrance closed by the release of a trigger. The captured animal could then be drowned by submerging the trap in a pail of water.
