On Dec. 1, 1943, death claimed Julia Abigail Macklem, widow of the late Colonel Frederick Charles Denison of Rusholme, as their Toronto estate is called. She was born at Chippewa, Ontario, nearly a century ago, daughter of Oliver and Tiffany Macklem. Her brother, the Rev. Sutherland Macklem, was the father of Mr. Francis Paget Macklem, well known resident of Grimsby. Her sister, Caroline Adelaide Macklem, married her brother-in-law, the late Police Magistrate, Col. George Taylor Denison, the third, world-famous for his writings, which included "Modern Cavalry", a book which won the Czar of Russia's world prize of 5000 rubles in 1877. His son, Colonel Garnet Wolseley Denison, D.S.O., with bar, married Agnes Keating, sister of Heloise Keating, wife of the above Mr. Francis Paget Macklem, and also sister of the late Mrs. W.H. Parsons of Grimsby. The above Colonel Frederick Charles Denison was one of the Five Famous Brothers, the others being, (besides the already mentioned Colonel George Taylor Denison, the third), Henry Tyrwhitt Denison, Colonel Clarence Denison, Admiral John Denison, General Septimus Julius Augustus Denison, and Captain Egerton Denison. They were all first cousins of Colonel Richard Lippincott Denison, who at one time owned a 200 acre farm on the Ridge Road, West, North Grimsby, just east of the old Stewart Walker farm. They were all nephews of Colonel Robert Brittain Denison of Bellevue, Toronto, ancestor of Mrs. Wallace Goldring who used to live at the Lake Shore and foot of the Thirty Mountain Road, Beamsville, and who now lives at Ridgeville. Other relatives of the deceased Mrs. Denison, living at one time in the Grimsby district, were the Mackays of Winona. Some may remember one, Miss Florence Mackay, who sang a role in H.M.S. Pinnafore, when it was put on in Moore's Theatre by the Choir of St. John's Church, Winona, some 15 or 20 years ago. The late Mrs. Denison was a relative of the Macklem ancestress of Vice-Admiral Percy Walker Nelles, C.B., and therefore a connection of a number of the Grimsby Nelles family.
