    Passenger List for the Tarolinta
    Robert Waugh, Joiner, his wife Isobel and their daughters Jane and Jesse (Jannet) arrived in New York City from Liverpool aboard the Tarolinta on Sept 5, 1844, with stated destination "Upper Canada" . Upper Canada existed from December 26, 1791 to February 10, 1841 and generally comprised present-day Southern Ontario. The prefix "upper" in its name reflects its geographic position higher up the river basin or closer to the headwaters of the Saint Lawrence River than that of Lower Canada or present-day Quebec to the northeast. - Wikipedia

      1886 obituary, Hamilton, Ontario:
      OBITUARY
      John Waugh
      Mr. John Waugh died at his home, No. 78 Bay street north, last evening.  Four years ago he suffered a paralytic stroke, and for the past two years he was a confirmed invalid.  His death was peaceful and painless.  Mr. Waugh was a native of Lochmachen [sic—Lochmaben?], Dumfrieshire, Scotland, where he was born 77 years ago.  He came to Canada with his young wife in 1834, and lived in Montreal for three years.  Then the little family came up the country and arrived in Hamilton.  The rebellion was then in progress, and Mr. Waugh enlisted as a volunteer in the militia, and did his share towards putting down the rebellion.  Ever since that time Mr. Waugh lived in Hamilton —that is for nearly half a century.  He was a contractor and builder, and many of the fine substantial buildings which adorn Hamilton to-day were erected by him many years ago.  He was always very strongly interested in church matters, and he and about a dozen others used to worship God together in the Presbyterisn style, in a little log school-house that stood where the Central Presbyterian church stands.  There are only two persons living now, who formed part of this little band which was the nucleus of one of the largest congregations in the city: these two are Mr. James Henderson and Mrs. Lees.  The present Central Presbyterian church was built by Mr. Waugh.  For many years he was a member and one of the managers of the church; but when Rev. Mr. Laidlaw came here, Mr. Waugh became a member of St. Paul’s.  Mr. Waugh’s wife survives him, and there are also living four sons and one daughter.  His two sisters, Mrs. Peter Balfour and Mrs. Alex Campbell, live in Hamilton.  Mr. Waugh was a Reformer in politics, and a consistent one.  He was small in stature, but had a big heart, and in all business affairs was the soul of honor.  His memory will be tenderly cherished by many old friends.
