An Amazing Coincidence

Following the performance of Suzanne Ozorak, who had been joined by her daughter Angelica Tombs playing the French horn in Mozart's Concerto #1, at the first of Chalmers-Wesley's Sunday at Six Organ Concert series on June 28, Suzanne's husband, Guy Tombs told me his father, Laurence Chalmers Tombs, had been baptized at Chalmers in 1903 and asked when the large marble baptismal font had been installed in our church.

 After checking in our history book, Remember All the Way, written by George W. Crawford, I informed him that the baptismal font had been donated to the church in 1904, so Mr. Tombs' father could not have been baptized in this particular font. However, in looking in the index he found references to his grandmother and grandfather, who was also named Guy Tombs. Mr. Tombs (senior) had been an elder of Chalmers Free Presbyterian Church and a member of the inter-denominational Church Union Committee in 1925 when it became part of the newly-created United Church of Canada, a union of Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregationalist churches across Canada. In 1931, after the Wesleyan Methodist church had also joined the UCC, it merged with Chalmers which was renamed, Chalmers-Wesley United Church.
