Photograph of William Stoddart, one of a group of photos of the Deseronto branch of the Sons of Scotland. A notice in The Tribune of November 27, 1903, states that the group met on the second Thursday of each month in the Masonic Building (the Clement Block).
Stoddart appears in the 1901 census of Deseronto, where his date of birth is given as 8 Oct 1841 (in Scotland). He came to Canada in 1860, as did his wife Margret (born 17 Sept 1843). He was a merchant sailor. Margaret Sheldon Stoddart (b. 8 June 1871), his daughter, was living with them.
