      Florence Lilian Pelton Patterson says in her Pelton Jarvis book, "Harry w as the humorous member of the family - an extrovert with an engaging perso nality. He attended Woodstock High School prior to going to work in a ba nk in Ingersoll. In the boarding house where he lived, he claimed that t he homemade bread 'ad holes in it large enough to jump through.' With h is horse and buggy he would return to his father's farm most weekend s. He was very fond of children and showed his love for his nieces and ne phews, who in turn, were devoted to him. His visits were eagerly awaited a nd in between times he wrote letters, not only to the adults but to the ch ildren as well, which were almost as good as a visit. At Christmas time t here would be a large box of Laura Secord chocolates which came in the mai l. His promotions through the bank eventually took him to Chapleau, ON wh ere he met and married the lovely Emma Noel de Tilley. After his marria ge he joined a construction company and moved to Ottawa where their son, R obert, was born. In time he was transferred to Toronto and upon retiremen t, moved the family home at 556 Kings Street, Woodstock. Harry had the fa culty of creating a lighthearted atmosphere wherever he went. His fun a nd gaiety withal, he was a 1 Pelton in that he was a basically conservativ e, and an adherent of sound principles."
