Description : This is a black document folder made of cardboard covered with black oil cloth. It has two compartments which open.
Commentaires : This folder was sent to Mr. John P. Plank of Uxbridge by Joseph Gould when Mr. Gould was in jail at Fort Henry, Kingston, following the Upper Canada Rebellion. John Phillip Plank arrived in Uxbridge with his family in 1826 and settled on the west part of Lot 30, Concession 6, east of Main Street and south of Brock Street. He had moved here from Markham Township where his relatives, the Schells had settled. John Plank built a house and tavern across from the present Music Hall on Main Street. Plank's tavern was the first place of public entertainment in the old Ontario County north of Kingston Road. The Uxbridge Trail ran right by Plank's inn so it saw a lot of traffic from people traveling north to Brock and Mariposa townships. Plank eventually bought property to the south of his tavern where he built a sawmill at the Elgin Pond dam. When he ran into problems with the sawmill, he sold to a young Joseph Gould who went on to become the first reeve of Uxbridge Township, and in 1854 the first Member of Parliament for the area. [From McGillivray, A. Tales from the Uxbridge Valley. The Uxbridge Millennium Committee, 2009.] Oil paintings of John P. and Polly Pickert Plank are in the Uxbridge Historical Centre's collection..
