History / Biographical
The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) began in 17th century England when a group of men organized themselves for the purpose of giving aid to those in need and the pursuit of various projects for the benefit of mankind. Odd Fellows are known as "The Three Link Fraternity" which stands for Friendship, Love and Truth. The first Odd Fellow Lodge in Ontario was instituted on June 17, 1845 in the village of Belleville. The IOOF in Rodney, Ontario was established on May 20, 1892, with charter members William Morris, A. Wismer, A. Humphrey, J.S. Robertson, J.H. Barnes, N.S. Lusty, Charles Grant, William Mapes, and W. Peer. At the Lodge's first meeting in the Barnes Block twenty new members were initiated by members of the Ridgetown Lodge. Meetings after 1903 were held on the second floor of the first brick building of Mistele Ltd. store with entrance by an outside stairs on the north side. In 1943, the Oddfellows purchased the Morris building on the northeast corner of Furnival and Clark Streets. Membership in the lodge peaked in 1955 with 137 members on the roll. For many years, they assumed responsibility for one of the most important social events of the year in this community, the annual "IOOF at Home". The Lodge also participated in many community service and fund-raising activities in Rodney and surrounding area. Rodney members took an active part on district committees in raising funds for new equipment for hospitals in St. Thomas, London, Tillsonburg, and Newbury. In association with the Rebekahs, the Humanitarian Services Committee maintained a supply of articles such as hospital beds, wheel chairs, crutches and walkers. They were loaned free to anyone who needed them. Members also held Ambliopia Clinics in the interest of better vision for children. The IOOF Rodney Lodge No. 291 existed under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Ontario Erie District No. 15. IOOF Rodney Lodge No. 291 disbanded in the early 1990s.

History / Biographical
The Daughters of Rebekah, also known as the Rebekahs and the International Association of Rebekah Assemblies, is an international service-oriented organization and a branch of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. It was initially designed as the female auxiliary of the IOOF,[1] but now allows both female and male members.[2] It is one of the units of the IOOF, but women need not be related to an Odd Fellow to be a member of the Rebekahs. As long as she meets the moral, ethical and age requirement for admission, any woman may join. In most jurisdictions, women aged 16 or 18 years old and above can join a Rebekah Lodge The Rebekah Lodges were founded on 20 September 1851, when, after considerable debate, the Sovereign Grand Lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows voted to adopt the Rebekah Degree, largely due to the efforts of an Odd Fellow named Schuyler Colfax. The first Rebekah Degrees were honorary awards only, conferred on wives and daughters of Odd Fellows at special Lodge meetings, and recipients were known as "Daughters of Rebekah".[4] The name is taken from the Biblical character of Rebekah. These early Daughters of Rebekah had no lodge system of their own, and operated in an informal and local manner. On September 25, 1868, the IOOF voted to establish Degree Lodges of the Daughters of Rebekah, mirroring the existing arrangements for their male counterparts. The Daughters were given the right to elect their own officers, charge for initiation fees, collect dues and undertake charitable and benevolent activities. The name was changed to "Degree of Rebekah" in 1874.[. The Rebekah St. Thomas Lodge No. 18 existed under the jurisdiction of the Rebekah Assembly of Ontario, Independent Order of Odd Fellows. The Rebekah Assembly of Ontario, Independent Order of Odd Fellows St. Thomas Lodge No. 18 disbanded in the late 1990s.

History / Biographical
The Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire (IODE), Tonti Chapter, St. Thomas, Ontario, received its charter in 1932, and took its name from the original name of Kettle Creek - Tonti. Due to declining membership, the Chapter disbanded in December 1999. "The Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire was founded in 1900 in Fredericton, NB, by Margaret Polson Murray of Montréal, who envisioned an organization of women devoted to encouraging imperialism. Beginning with an educational mandate promoting Britain and British institutions through the schools, it became actively involved in both world wars in supporting Canada's efforts on behalf of Britain and the allies. In 1979 the name IODE was officially adopted. IODE chapters are made up of women from many walks of life with a common interest in volunteering their time to improve the quality of life for children, youth and those in need, through educational, social service and citizenship programs. Other areas of interest included immigration, child welfare, community health and social services. In recent years the IODE has concentrated more on community affairs, supporting Canadian educational, cultural and social developments. Although its membership has declined it remains an active women's organization, with 8000 members in 400 branches in 1999."

History / Biographical
The Ladies' Benevolent and Temperance Society of St. Thomas was organized at St. Thomas, Ontario March 24, 1876 and incorporated in April 1878. Under Article II of its constitution the Society and its members were committed to the following objects: "1st - The care of the aged, and the homeless. 2nd - The promotion of Temperance. 3rd - To acquire and hold property as a place of refuge for the aged and homeless."
On March 27, 1878 the Society opened the St. Thomas "Home" for "those who are sick or destitute belonging to the town." The Home was located "in the brick house formerly used as a tavern on the Wilson farm in the town of St. Thomas."
The St. Thomas Home admitted adult men and women as well as children under the age of twelve in its "Orphanage Branch." In its first year of operation the Home admitted 29 people (19 female, 10 male), including two infants born at the Home; the eldest admittee was 90.
Although initially inmates were expected to pay residency fees according to their means, the Home was funded principally by grants from the Government of Ontario and the City of St. Thomas, and, to a lesser degree, private donations.
Because it received government funding, the Home was required to file annual reports with and was subject to the supervision of the Office of the Inspector of Public Charities for Ontario, and later the Ontario Department of Public Welfare - Homes for the Aged Branch and its successor, the Ontario Department of Social and Family Services - Homes for the Aged Branch.
On July 24, 1882 the Society purchased property at 57 Walnut Street, St. Thomas from Hiram Comfort and later that year erected the Thomas Williams Home on that site, replacing the St. Thomas "Home" as a refuge for indigent citizens. The Home was named in honour of its principal patron, St. Thomas philanthropist Thomas Williams, who was also named a life member of the Home's advisory board.
The last child resident of the Thomas Williams Home was discharged in March 1899; thereafter, while adults under the age of 40 continued to be admitted, the Home's population became increasingly elderly. In the year ending October 1, 1911 the youngest of the Home's eighteen inmates was 53 and the average age was 74.
Although not absolute requirements for admission, the great majority of residents were received from the City of St. Thomas and reported affiliation with some denomination of Protestantism.
By 1956 the Thomas Williams Home had evolved from its origins as a temporary place of charitable refuge for indigents to a permanent residence for senior citizens of reduced means operated under sanction of the Ontario Department of Public Welfare - Homes for the Aged Branch. Residents contributed to the cost of their care by assigning their old age security entitlements in trust to The Ladies' Benevolent and Temperance Society of St. Thomas.
From the 1950s on, the Home maintained an average population of twenty five residents, divided equally between the sexes, and employed a staff of five - superintendent, caretaker, cook, and two housemaids.
The Ladies' Benevolent and Temperance Society of St. Thomas operated the Thomas Williams Home until 1994 when the house and property were sold to private investors who remodelled the site as a bed and breakfast called "Rosebery Place."
From May 1927 to August 1973 the Society operated a similar institution, for women only, known as Campbell Cottage, located at 40 Wellington Street, St. Thomas.
The Cottage had been the residence of Mary Campbell Leitch who died March 20, 1921 and left this property in trust to the Society for the purpose of operating a home for "elderly women of modest means." On April 1, 1927 the Society established its Campbell Cottage Committee to undertake the administration of the residence. The first residents were admitted to the Cottage in July 1927.
The Cottage received a second source of funding when St. Thomas resident Sophia Burton Lamb died on July 13, 1930 and left half her estate as a legacy to establish the Sophia Cutten Lamb Memorial Fund Trust to support the operation of Campbell Cottage under the management of The Ladies' Benevolent and Temperance Society of St. Thomas.
In 1973, citing declining demand for admission and the existence of other, similar relief institutions, the Society ceased managing Campbell Cottage, the Mary C. Leitch estate, and the Sophia Cutten Lamb Memorial Fund Trust.
Custodial History
The fonds was donated to the Elgin County Library in the mid-to-late 1990s and subsequently transferred to the Elgin County Archives.
Original minute book (March 1876-April 1884) and notebook (October 1876-September 1886) donated as accession 2013-09.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of records created, collected and maintained by The Ladies' Benevolent and Temperance Society of St. Thomas in the course of operating the Thomas Williams Home and Campbell Cottage residence for indigents/senior citizens in St. Thomas, Ontario. The fonds includes minutes of meetings of the Society; annual financial statements, account records and reports to various government agencies concerning the operation of the Thomas Williams Home and Campbell Cottage; registers, log books and ledgers providing information about inmates/residents and staff of the Home and Cottage; and photographs depicting the grounds, buildings, residents and staff of the Thomas Williams Home and members of The Ladies' Benevolent and Temperance Society of St. Thomas.
The fonds comprises the following ten series: Minutes, 1876-1952; Financial Statements, 1942-1987; Residents Registers/ Log Books, 1878-1924; General Ledgers, 1892-1975; Returns to Government, 1878-1971; Legal Records,1921-1974; Inspection Registers, 1965-1977; Staff Account Ledgers, 1957-1975; Photographs, [189-?]-1969; Miscellaneous Records, 1882-1985.
The fonds will be useful to researchers concerned with the funding, operation, population and staffing of the Thomas Williams Home and Campbell Cottage in particular and private houses of refuge or relief and private retirement homes for the aged in Ontario and Canada generally; with the history of municipal and provincial funding and oversight of the provision of relief to indigent and elderly citizens in Ontario; with the establishment, development, organization structure, membership, business practices and fundraising activities of The Ladies' Benevolent and Temperance Society of St. Thomas in particular and of private philanthropic agencies in Ontario and Canada generally. Genealogists will find the fonds useful in identifying and gleaning information about individual inmates/residents and employees at the Home and Cottage.
