    • GRESHAM PROCTOR, retired, was born on Yonge Street, York County, in the year 1817, being the son of Henry Proctor, who emigrated from Vermont, U. S., in the year 1800, and bought a bush farm which he cleared. Mr. Proctor, sen'r, took part in the War of 1812 by hauling supplies for the army. Gresham in early life had the advantage of a fair education, and after leaving school hired himself out to farmers until he had accumulated sufficient money to purchase a farm. He bought one hundred acres on lot 31, concession 6 of the Township of King, paying for the same $100. He subsequently bought fifty acres more, all of which by industry and skill he put in a high state of cultivation and was very successful. In the year 1869 he acquired five acres in Kettleby Village and retired from active life. Mr. Proctor has filled several municipal offices very creditably. He was married in 1841 to Elizabeth Lloyd, daughter of William Lloyd, by whom he has six children : William, Mellissa, Lovella, Luzesky, Josephine and Wakefield.

    Although its events inspired one of our most famous national songs, the War of 1812 is itself a relatively little-known war in American history.

It also fostered a strong sense of national pride among the American people, and those patriotic feelings are reflected and preserved in the song we know today as our national anthem.
