Transcribed by June Partridge; original material supplied by Ruth Burkholder
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2015

Coil bound...21.95 (C$)

Three generations of the Wideman family, Philip, son Ludwig, and grandson Bartholomew, operated a successful marble works that produced monuments in Ringwood, Ontario and then in Stouffville from 1839 until 1939. The Tarr family operated the business from 1939 to 1977, followed by the Marks family who took over in 1978. The business is known today as Stoufville Monument Works Ltd.

This book is a faithful transcription of the Wideman Order Book for the years 1874 to 1878. The Order Book was the primary record of all of the monuments produced by the Wideman's during those years.
