Notes: A history of the Gentleman family by Mrs. James Murray, as quoted in Robert's Bairns, "In 1851 David Gentleman with his wife, Mary Irving, and their three childen, Mary, Isabella, and James, emigrated from Scotland. Their original intention was to go to Illinois, but the journey was so tedious the wife refused to go farther. When they reached the Longwood's Road in Ekfrid Twp., they obtained a house and David immediately began working at his trade as a Tailor. David Gentleman was a man of independent spirit, which was one reason he left his native Scotland, with a desire to own some land of his won. He was a hard worker, active in body and mind, stricly honest, ready to do his share in any udnertaking and pay his way wherever he went. After some years he bought a farm in the Riverside area which became the gentleman Homestead. It is now owned by Don Graff. In later years the son James married Margaret Campbell."13
