In Grateful Remembrance: Honouring the Men from Knox, Owen Sound, who Paid the Supreme Sacrifice

The book focuses on the men and their families but it also includes some church history and information about the church organ that was dedicated in memory of the soldiers who died during the First World War.

To see a list of the men that I researched, read my article In Grateful Remembrance

Book (Currently out of Print)
The Churches of Grey Presbytery of the United Church of Canada: Historical Highlights (Owen Sound, Ont. : Janet Iles Consulting & Research Services, 2007)

This book highlights the history of Churches that were part of the United Church of Canada in 1925 and that were within the boundaries of Grey Presbytery at the time the book was published. Grey Presbytery did not include all United Churches within the County of Grey. Since then, Grey Presbytery no longer exists but the Churches are now part of Northern Waters Presbytery.
