THE LOVERING CONTRIBUTION TO THE AREA CHURCHES

The Loverings were primarily Methodist. When the Methodist and Presbyterian Churches amalgamated in 1925 many became members of the United Church of Canada. The following summarizes known involvement with this affiliation as determined from conversations with family members and written documents: • The first North River Sunday School started in the grainery of John and Jane Lovering. This grainery still stands and is part of the barns of Etley Lovering. • The formation of the Sunday School led to a need for a Church. Many of the Loverings contributed greatly in time, energy, and resources to the building of the North River Methodist Church. • William Henry Lovering and his wife Rachael, who lived close to the church, acted as caretakers during the winter months for many years. His daughter Nellie Drue recalls him making shavings and drawing wood to the Church where he and his wife would start the fire while the children dusted the pews, organ and pulpit. • Melvin Victor Lovering carried on a similar function and was at one time an elder. In 1965 the North River Church became part of the Coldwater Congregation. • The "Loverings" are also among the Church Pioneers involved with the founding of the Coldwater United Church and many continued to play an active role in its operation. — In 1910, H.L., John, W.D., and AnDREW Lovering were members o f the Church Board. During this time, a new Church was being built and AnDREW Lovering also served as a member of the Building Committee. — In 1923, the Church was destroyed by fire. AnDREW Lovering, a Board Member, once again became a member of the new Building Committee. — Bruce Lovering and his wife, Donna Crook, were both members of the first Junior Choir. — Mrs. Melvin Lovering is among the list of organ is ts and assistant organists. — H. L. Lovering and Mrs. Walter Lovering held the office of Sunday School Superintendent. — In 1966, Mel V. Lovering was an Honourary Elder and his son Mel V. Lovering was a member of the Committee of Stewards. • Rev. Herbert G. Lovering and Rev. Milton Lovering were both men from the Coldwater area.

The Orillia PAcket, March 3, 1882- Mr. Thomas Lovering is getting out timber for a large barn, which he proposes erecting on his farm in Matchedash.

The Orillia Packet, May 2, 1901- LAWSON- Mr. Thomas Lovering had three valuable cattle killed by a train, near Coldwater station. The railway fence had been destroyed by fire, and the cattle strayed on the track. The Company will pay for them.

The Orillia Packet, May 16, 1901- COLDWATER- The Planet says:- Mr. Thomas Lovering was unfortunate enough to lose two cows on Saturday. The fence along the track had been burned, and the cows ventured on just as a double header came along. The result was one cow killed and another so badly injured that it had to be killed. The Grand Trunk will have to foot the bill.

DITTO- There are two cases of smallpox in Coldwater both sons of Mr. Thos. Lovering. How they got the infection, the Packet has not heard. A close quarantine of the house is maintained, and any spread of the disease is unlikely. There is also a fresh case in the Township of Tay, near Victoria Harbour, the victim being a man named Webb.
