Personal note from the author of this website: As a child, I often visited Mr. Dan Ogilvie along with my parents. Over a period of many years, I witnessed his dedication to the task of writing the history of his beloved parish in his office and workroom. From the beams overhead hung his other project--his own coffin, which he had made himself. My mother went to school with Jasper O'Gilvie and Pearl, his future wife. Jasper was our dentist.
