From Cinde Little:
"As an adult George farmed west of Conestoga. He left Woolwich Twp around 1898. He died at the home of his daughter, Florence Sauer. A prayer service was held at the home, 354 Parkdale Avenue, Buffalo, N.Y. This family information came from the Canadian census (1871 and 1881), as well as from Velma Hilton (June 1982), Marjorie Donaldson (July 1982), Winterbourne Cemetery records and Charlotte Mackie.
He named the town of Winterbourne, Ontario."
From Brian Mikkila:
"The town of Winterbourne was actually named by William Henry Lanphier (1809-?) in 1855 after the home of the Lanphiers in England. He built a mill and several other buildings important to a starting town. Perhaps Mr. Burnett contibuted to this idea, but this is the actual story. I know because I am also related to him."
