Reverend Ezekiel Gooderham

It is not known if Ezekiel took any part in the milling business - he may have if only for a short time. However he did settle on a farm at Wexford, Ontario, which is now part of the borough of Scarborough in Toronto.

A few years after arrival in Canada, Ezekiel and Harriet became members of York mills Baptist Church, and Ezekiel served as Deacon for some years. In 1849, when the pastor Rev. James Mitchell died, Ezekiel took his place and served as pastor. Due to the urgent appeals of ministers and members who knew him, he consented to be ordained when he was nearing his 60th year. The ordination took place in Bond St. Baptist Church, Toronto. He served the York mills Baptist Church as Pastor for 15 years, resigning at last because of ill health.

Many spoke with great tenderness of his worth and work. He died on December 28, 1870, at his residence, Mill Street Toronto, and on December 31 was buried at York Mills Baptist Cemetery. A son Walter who died at the age of 21 and his wife Harriet, are also buried there.

When the York Mills Church held its 100th anniversary in 1929 there were still descendants of Ezekiel and Harriet Gooderham attending the church. Since then the church and parsonage have been torn down to make way for housing, but the cemetery on York Mills Rd. is still there and is being cared for by the Union of Baptist Churches.

William Ezekiel Gooderham and May out for a Sleigh Ride 1940
Mr. Gooderham's family always had roast goose for Christmas dinner and he remembers the huge plum pudding his mother (Catherine) made - lots of suet and big raisins boiled in a cloth in a big iron pot.

Mr. Gooderham and his brother hung their stockings behind the wood burning stove in the dining-room on Christmas Eve. They got up before dawn and took the filled stockings upstairs and ate the contents in bed in the dark - nuts, raisins, candy and an orange. One Christmas, they got fur caps for presents and Mr. Gooderham's cap fell off the hook and the new puppy chewed a hole in it.

After Christmas dinner everyone went skating on the pond. There was always a shinny match between Churchville and Meadowvale. The boys skated down the river from Churchville. They made the shinny sticks out of little maple trees, the root of the saplings shaped the end of the stick. At night, they set fires to big pine stumps on the pond. Skates were wooden and were fastened to the boots with a screw in the heel and with straps.

During Christmas week, cousins used to drive down from Terra Cotta in a horse drawn sleigh. New Year's Eve, the Meadowvale Band went around the village playing the old Year out and the new Year in.

St. James Cemetery, on Toronto's Parliament St, is the site of the final resting spots for Wm Gooderham, James G Worts and the founders of the Gooderham and Worts Distillery. At some point in the past - perhaps during the 1970s - the angel that decorated the original Gooderham monument was stolen or damaged, perhaps by a fallen tree.
