Note: "Ancaster Heritage pg 269; - William Shaver (1771-1830) got the Crown Patent for lot 35/3. He had come from Oxford County, N.J. to Ancaster with his father John, and registered his Patent in 1797. By hard work (and a little neighborly help) he made a clearing and built a log cabin and stable, and in 1798 asked Mary Catherine Book (1776-1845) to marry him. Since there was no Anglican minister in Ancaster, they had to walk along the animal path, that Richard Hatt was trying to widen into the old Ancaster-Dundas Road, into Dundas and thence to Richard Beasley's home (today's Dundurn Park) in Hamilton. There, Mr. Beasley, a Justice of the Peace, married them in the presence of the six relatives and witnesses who had also trudged through the miles of mud. / William gave each of his eight sons a farm, and to each of his five daughters a handsome dowry. He had 129 grandchildren. Ancaster Heritage pg 197; - Bethesda Church had its beginning when a group met in the log home of William Shaver (1771-1830) as early as 1825 according to Benjamin Smith's diary. They were know as the Shaver Settlement Methodist Church, and they worshipped in the nearby Bethesda School. They were a part of various circuits until 1954 when, with Bowman Church, they became a two point charge. / In 1860, John Shaver (1799-1861) left in his will a plot of land on a hilltop for a church and burial ground, with $400 to finance it. His son, Horace (1840-1898), deeded the half acre to five trustees, Orange L. House, Daniel Shaver, David M. Lee, Jacob Albert Shaver, and Egerton Shaver; but it was not until 1867 that work on the church was started. Bethesda Church, build by Jacob Cramer from plans made by Austin House, was dedicated on Oct. 4, 1868. In the following years, Alem Kelly, John A. Daniels, and Jacob A Shaver have been class leaders; and three members have entered the ministry: Rev. Dr. William Scott Daniels, (1872-1965), Rev. Daniel Shaver Kern (1877-1933) and Rev. William Osbrone Bristol (1888-1949). Mr. Kern served a term as a missionary in China; Dr. Daniels' daughter, Elda was a missionary in Korea; and Mr. Bristol's son, Dr. Lyle O. Bristol, served in the Baptist ministry as did his father. / Early in this century, a choir alcove was added in the south end of the church, and a new wood furnace was installed in 1951, a new oil furnace was installed in 1952, Albert M. Shaver donated a Hallman orgarn in memory of those who had served in World Wars 1 and 2; and later, a new pulpit and communion table were given by Cora, Mabel, and Dr. Gordon Kelly. In 1917, the Bethesda Ladies' Aid Cosiety was formed, but they merged in 1962 with the Missionary Society to become the United Church Women. The centennial of the construction of the church was observed in 1967 by re-aligning the pulpit, organ, and choir." Brent Kelly 1
