      * from the notes of Dr BT McGhie : With all his social and professional obligations, B.T. still did not forget his love for books. He often took time to read and even make notes about any new books he encountered. He was once offered the chair of the medical board of Queens University in Kingston but turned it down because of his age. He retired to his farms and raised horses, often showing them at local fairs. He was a Conservative, an Anglican, and a
      member of the Orange Lodge. Once, when Liberal politician D'Arcy McGee came to Elgin to speak, the doctor took an active stand against him. The "old doctor" died on October 18, 1893 after tripping on a rug, exclaiming "This is the end!" He was eighty-two years of age. He is buried with his second wife Mercy Ophelia at the cemetery in Elgin.

      11 1871 census as Anselm 6, male - 1881 census lists Angelia 16, female (error?), no photos known, despite living until 1907, aged 43. Dr BT McGhie stated "she was rather delicate and never married". Was she physically or mentally disabled?
