as directed, but yet did not make a success. Mr. Everett's wife came out and 
protested, whereupon John told her that Mr. Everett was not his father, nor 
was she his mother, and be went to his mother's brother Michael and remained 
with him. On one occasion while there he was told to carry some weeds to a 
certain place, but this was too slow to suit him, so he set them afire and burned 
up a lot of com, wheat and rails. On another occasion his uncle left him and 
a cousin to cultivate a certain amount of corn, and told them if it was not 
finished when he got home he would pimish them severely. lie was not very

PETER GREENLEE left Scotland for America in 1842, sailing on the 
Gleaner from Campbeltown, the first ocean vessel which ever left that port. 
They weighed anchor on the 4th of June and reached New York on the 4th 
of July. They went directly to Illinois by the most expeditions route then 
known, via river, canal and lakes to Chicago, thence with team to "Winnebago 
County. In those early days they were compelled to haul their grain to Chi- 
cago, a distance of ninety miles, there selling or exchanging it for necessary 
provisions, clothing, lumber, etc. Although like all early settlers of the Scotch 
settlement, he was very poor, by hard work and economical methods he became 
the owner of three large farms, which are now owned by his sons. He helped 
organize and build the first school house in that part of the country, and was 
also interested in the founding of the Willow Creek Presbyterian Church.

SAMUEL GREENLEES was a man of great energy and force of character, 
and the foUowing record of his busy life shows how much a man possessing 
such characteristics can attain in a lifetime, even in a small community. He 
was bom at the farm of Greenland and was the oldest but one of a family of 
eleven children. lie received his early education at Peniver School, and after- 
ward attended the Campbeltown Grammar School, then under the able rector- 
ship of the late Mr. Brunton, LL. D. When his school days were over he com- 
menced business in the town, and entered into partnership with Jlessrs. Mat- 
thew and Daniel Greenlees, distillers, in Longrow, the site of the works being 
now occupied by the offices of Mr. James Weir, builder, and the present ma- 
chine room of the "Argyllshire Herald" in Reform Square which was then 
used as a malt barn by the firm. Increasing business, however, in the course 
of a few years necessitated extended premises, and a site was taken at the 
head of Longrow whereon a new work was erected in 1845, capable of pro- 
ducing double the quantity of the old one. This work has been gradually ex- 
tended until it has become the largest distillery in the town, known as the 
Hazelbum Distillery. In 1840 Mr. Greenlees married the sister of his partner, 
Daniel Greenlees. His two sons are partners in the well known and successful 
firm of Greenlees Brothers, Glasgow and Loudon. In 1853 Mr. Greenlees in 
conjunction with his partner became proprietor of the farm of Moy, a connect 
tion which continued until 1881, when Daniel Greenlees retired from business 
and the partnership was dissolved. Samuel Greenlees then purchased the 
whole, both the estate and the distillery and carried them on almost to the day 
of his death. He always took a great interest in agricultural work, influenced 
no doubt, by tlie power of early associations, his father being a farmer; and 
since his purchase of the estate in 1881 he carried on extensive improvements 
in the way of draining, watering, fencing, etc., so that the Moy is now in the 
best possible condition. He also turned his attention to the raising of cattle. 


and the stock of bullocks and sheep fed on the Moy were eagerly picked np 
by good buyers, and the best prices readily obtained. 

Eegarding ilr, Greenlees' more public career first and foremost must be 
mentioned the active interest he took in the volunteer movement and his special 
interest in the Artillery Volunteer Corps since its formation. He was among 
the first gentlemen in the town to encourage the movement and was present at 
the first meeting called by the Town Council on October 31, 1860, for the pur- 
pose of promoting the formation of an artillery company in the town. At this 
meeting he was appointed convener of the committee elected to proceed with 
the organization of the corps. From this point Jlr. Greenlees threw his whole 
energy into the matter, and it was chiefly owing to his enthusiasm and his 
power to infuse something of his spirit into others that the Artillery Corps was 
established ^vith great success. He undertook the greater part of the work 
connected with getting up subscriptions; and in the diflSeulties that at one time 
seemed to threaten and ahnost extinguish the infant corps, in obtaining a site 
for a battery, Mr. Greenlees' indomitable zeal and energy maintained the 
flagging spirits of his co-promoters, until at the darkest hour Dr. Russell gen- 
erously came forward and offered part of his ground for drill and battery. In 
all the ensuing years Jlr. Greenlees' interest in the corps has never abated; and 
the corps in return has never been slow to acknowledge their debt of gratitude 
to him. On the official organization of the corps in 1861, he was recommended 
as Captain to the Lord Lieutenant of the country, receiving his commission 
in Februarj' of that year, a position which he held until his retirement in 1870; 
and when the guns were got into position at the battery at Kilkerran his prom- 
inent share in their establishment was recognized by his daughter Catherine 
firing off the first cannon. In 1863 when the corps was successfully established, 
his services were publicly acknowledged by a complimentary supper in the 
Town Hall, given by the members of the corps. The late Provost Beith was 
chairman on the occasion, and a short extract from his speech which was pub- 
lished in the "Argyllshire Herald" is here given: he "only needed to mention 
the name of Captain Greenlees to call forth the applause of the gentlemen pres- 
ent, and in doing so he would congratulate the members of the corps on the judi- 
cious selection they had made of a commanding officer. The Company need not 
be reminded how entirely their Captain had devoted himself to the interests 
of the corps — of the indefatigable efforts to procure a site for a battery, and 
the personal labour which he bestowed during its erection. He might go fur- 
ther and remind them that he did not grudge incurring personal expense and 
lessening the same to the public by means of his workmen, and the gratuitous 
assistance which by his influence he was able to procure. The volunteers were 
well aware that in all their operations Captain Greenlees took the lead. He 
well merited the approbation to which their meeting that evening gave expres- 
sion, and it would not be otherwise than gratifying to him to witness the sense 
entertained by the corps of his valuable services, in which he, the chairman, 
entirely concurred." A few years after this ^Ir. Greenlees got up a bazaar 
to raise funds which were necessary for the corps, a rather daring undertaking 
in those days for bazaars were then in their infancy, and Campbeltonians were 
not so enterprising in matters such as these at that time as they are now. The 
bazaar, however, having Captain Greenlees at its head was a success. A num- 


ber of years later the present hall in Argyll Street was built for drill, and it is 
needless to state all that Captain Greenlees did for this enterprise also; suf- 
fice it to say that he entered into this project ^vith his usual heartiness and did 
all in his power for its promotion, both by his means and LnSuence. On. his 
retiring from the corps in 1870 he was presented by the oflScers and men with a 
magnificent sword, Mrs. Greenlees at the same time being presented with a 
handsome epergne. The sword bears th following inscription: "Presented to 
Captain Greenlees by the members of the 6th Argyll Artillery Volunteers as a 
token of respect, and to express their appreciation of his services in connec- 
tion Avith the corps since its formation, A. D. 1870." The Captain was very 
proud of this sword. The attachment which the corps maintained toward their 
Captain was evinced when the 4th and 5th batteries met in the drill hall for 
parade, in terms of order issued. There was a full muster under Lieutenant 
M'Pherson, the oflScer in command. As the oflScers of the corps considered 
it due to the memory of the late Captain Greenlees to dismiss without going 
through the intended parade. Lieutenant M'Ph'erson called upon the Rev. Dr. 
Russell, chaplain of the corps, to make this intimation. Dr. Russell said "Com- 
rades: we meet this evening under the shadow of a great bereavement. You, 
I am sure, accept as seemly and suitable the decision of your ofiicers not to pro- 
ceed further with your intended parade tonight. To Captain Greenlees, who 
was called to his rest yesterday, and whose loss we deplore, this corps has been 
under the deepest obligations. Some of you only know from the report of 
others what he did for it at lis formation ; all of you know the deep interest 
which to the last he continued to take in its welfare and eflRciency. It is no 
exaggeration to afBrm that it was he who, a quarter of a century ago, founded 
and consolidated the corps; and those of you who were members then know 
the enthusiasm with which he embraced the volunteer movement, and the zeal 
and energy he threw into the work of the corps. PYom his very nature he 
could not have done otherwise, for he did nothing feebly or by halves. The 
oflBcers who had done most for the corps will acknowedge that to his energy 
and public spirit the high state of efficiency to which it was so early brought, 
and which it has so uniformly maintained, is greatly due. I know I rightly 
interpret your feelings when I say that we sincerel}' mourn the loss of our old 
and honored Captain ; and that we are moved with heart-felt sympathy and 
condolence with Mrs. Greenlees and family in their deep sorrow ; and that we 
hope and pray that they may be sustained and comforted in their heavy 

As a town councillor, in which capacity he served altogether for a term of 
nineteen years, Jlr. Greenlees took great interest in municipal affairs. He was 
first elected on November 4, 1858 and served his term of three years. On the 
death of Mr. John Colvill, he was elected to the Council Board ad interim, 
October 17, 1863, and on the election coming round in November, 1864, was 
re-elected. He remained a member of the council until November, 1879, but 
bad given up attending the meetings some time previous, the last occasion on 
which he was present being Jlay 22, 1878. As a director, and several times 
chairman, of the Campbeltown and Glasgow Steam Packet Company, he was 
greatly interested in the progress of that company, and did all in his power 
to promote its fortunes. He was also a member of the Parochial Board, and in 


1862, took an active part in the change from means and substance to rentaL 
The Building Company of the Town was another institution in which he was 
much interested becoming a large shareholder, and trying to bring it to success 
in many ways. He was a member of the Bontyre Club since 1860, and was ap- 
pointed corresponding director in 1877, which year was a flourishing one for 
the club, the number of new members secured in that year having far sur- 
passed any previous one. He was also Justice of the Peace. 

Mr. Greenlees was connected with the United Presbyterian Church, and took 
a great interest in all its affairs, subscribing liberally to its schemes and the 
support of the congregation. He was appointed manager in 1846, continuing 
in that ofBce until 1883, and was preses of the congregation from 1863 to 1865. 
When the present beautiful edifice was built for the Longrow congregation he 
took such an interest in the matter as only one of his energetic temperament 
could; and to him, along with a few other gentlemen — notably Mr. James 
Stewart, Craigbank — is due the chief credit of having the handsome structure 
reared and clear of debt on the opening Sabbath, by their handsome contribu- 
tions, their exertions to secure subscriptions, and the influence of their exam- 
ple on others. 

In politics Mr. Greenlees was always a robust Liberal. He did not, however, 
agree with the policy of Mr. Gladstone's present Irish Bill, and his last pub- 
lic action was to attach his signature to a petition of the Liberals in the Burgh 
against the Bill, to be forwarded to Mr. R. F. F. Campbell, M. P. 

Mr. Greenlees was a man of remarkable force of character. He threw his 
whole heart and soul into whatever he undertook, and pursued his aim with in- 
defatigable energy and perseverance, generally to ultimate triumph. These . 
traits of character doubtless did much to secure the success which crowned 
his business undertakings. As a man of business, he was very prompt and de- 
cided. He quickly formed a decision and abided by the result, and no persua- 
sion could turn him aside, the result generally proving him in the right. He 
was reliable and honourable to the last degree. No one who trusted his word 
or expressed promise had cause to doubt that these would not be fulfilled to the 
utmost. In manner he was outspoken and fearless, quick to point out a wrong 
and when occasion required to upbraid the wrong-doer, but never, when the 
occasion had passed, continued to bear a grudge. 

During the latter part of 1876 an illness of severe character manifested 
itself, which he endured with great patience. He recovered and was in com- 
paratively good health until six months before his death. His energetic nature, 
however, could not be conquered and he continued to go about until four 
days before he died. He was buried in Kilkerran Cemetery, a large number 
of townspeople gathering to pay the last tribute of respect to him whose 
familiar form has passed from their sight. The officers and men of the Artil- 
lery Volunteers, and the staff of the 6th Brigade, Scottish Division, R. A., also 
attended. During the day the ships at the quay carried their flags at half- 
mast, and every token of respect was paid to the memory of one who had lived 
a long and useful life.

JOHN GREENLEE left Scotland in a sailing vessel in 1836, reaching New 
York after four weeks on the ocean, and, going directly to Illinois, settled 
first in Ottawa, where his nephews, George and John Armour, were then liv- 
ing. After remaining there a short time he went to Winnebago County and 
made claim to government land in what is now Harlem Township, becoming 
the first permanent settler in the locality known as the Scotch Settlement of 
Winnebago and Boone counties. He experienced all the privations and hard- 
ships of pioneer life, such as come to those who locate on the frontier. He 
was very poor when he first settled there, but industry and good management 
were cro'wned with success, and he became the owner of three highly improved 
farms. He lived upon his first claim until 1870, when he removed to Belvidere 
and spent the remainder of his life in retirement. He was one of the founders 
of the Willow Creek Presbyterian Church and served as ruling elder for many 
years. In politics he was a Democrat.

ROBERT GREENLEES received his education in the Campbelto^vn Gram- 
mar School, and in early life was apprenticed with David Colville, writer, as 
clerk. lie afterward joined his father in business as a distiller, having been 
taken into the firm of Colville, Greenlees & Company, Argyll Distillery. His 
father soon retired and the business was carried on by the junior partners, and 
eventually by Robert Greenlees. lie retired in 1887 when the distillery was 
sold to the neighboring firm of Greenlees & Colvill. Mr. Greenlees took an 
active part in the work of the Longrow United Presbyterian Church, of which 
he was a member. He was prescs of the congregation for a number of years, 
and was Church Treasurer for over twenty years. His .sympathies were not 
confined to church organizations, however, but extended to all charitable in- 
stitutions in the town, and his charities, although numerous, were unostenta- 
tious. He also took an active interest in public affairs. He occupied a seat 
on the old Parochial Board for a number of years and was vice-chairman of the 
House Committee, but did not seek re-election to the Parish Council when the 
new administration took the place of the Parochial Board in 1895. lie was 
director of the Campbeltown and District Savings Bank, and a director of the 
Campbeltown and Glasgow Steam Packet Company. He was a man of the 
most gentle and unassuming character — a man of good deeds, rather than loud 
profession, whose quiet, consistent Christian life was an example to many and 
gained for him the love of all who knew him, or even slightly came in contact 
with him.

JOHN GREENLEES %vas ordained in 1825 as an Elder in the congregation 
in which he had been brought up, and for forty-seven years filled that oflBce 











acceptably. In 1830 he formed a fixed resolution neither to use ardent spirits 
nor to entice others to use them. He was an earnest temperance reformer, and 
started a temperance roll, but was much discouraged by one after another fall- 
ing away from it. At the same time, men under the influence of liquor tried to 
hide from him. He formed a temperance roll for his own family, and father, 
mother and children all signed it. He taught diligently in the Presbyterian 
Sabbath school for nearly fifty-sLx years, and visited the district assigned to 
him as elder, conducting weekly prayer meetings in his district for thirty-six 
years. Though busied in an agricultural life, he found time for reading and 
studying theology and kindred subjects. As a token of respect for his mem- 
ory, a large concourse of ministers and laity of all Christian denominations in 
the neighborhood accompanied his remains to the grave. In politics he wa« 
Radical. He resided at GljTin, County Antrim, Ireland. 

ROBERT HUGH SEMPLE, AL A., grandson of John Greenlees, had a very 
brilliant career both at school and at college, carrying off a great many 
prizes, scholarships and University honors. He is a distinguished graduate of 
Queen's College and also of Cambridge University. On August 3, 1891 he 
was ordained as a minister of the Downpatrick congregation, and in 1895 
he was transferred to Limerick. He is an able preacher and much beloved by 
his people.

DANIEL GREENLEES was a partner in the firm of Greenlees & Colville, 
Hazelbum Distillery, along with Samuel Greenlees, his brother-in-law, with 
whom also he jointly held the estate of Moy, but left the business in 1881, and 
since that time lived a life of well-earned leisure. Early taking an interest in 
the welfare of his fellow citizens, he took a prominent part in the Reform Bill 
agitation of 1832, and a year later was elected a member of the Town Council, 
which honorable duties he faithfully discharged, with an intermission of one 
year (1841-2) till 1860. During this period of 27 years he served as Bailie from 
1836-1841, and from 1848-1854. A useful member of the Council, he was con- 
tented with his wellknown title of Bailie Greenlees, notwithstanding that the 
Provosiship was frequently pressed upon him — an office which he lived tx> 
see filled by his son, Charles, for many years. During his servitude in the 
Council he had the superintendence of the repairs of the South Side of the 
Old Quay, and the town property in Bolgam Street was secured under his 
administration. He was also one of the promoters of the Gas Company, and 
was early connected with the Steamboat Company of which he was a director. 
Mr. Greenlees was initiated a member of St. John's Lodge of Freemasons on 
the 18th of May, 1819, and was thus the oldest living Freemason in Scotland, 
his connection with the craft extending over a period of 73 years. An earnest 
churchman, he was a member of the Longrow United Presbyterian Church, 
and was ordained to the eldership in 1832, and gave with a warm heart and 
liberal hand to all its schemes. He was convener of the Law Committee of the 
Church during the great Smith ease (well-known in church history), which 
was carried to the Court of Session and won by the congregation. Rev. Mr. 


Smith, minister at that time, attempted to carry the congregation with all the 
church property, out of the denomination and into the Established Church- 
The isolated position of the towTQ, far from the seat of Presbytery in Glasgow, 
the system of proprietors by which the church was held, and the fact that the 
constitution of the Relief Denomination and the rules of procedure had not 
been very carefully formulated, helped to facilitate the step ilr. Smith waa 
taking. For a time the congregation was deprived of the use of the church, 
the first Sabbath on which they were shut out being a cold, snowy day in the 
month of December, when the congregation worshipped in the Kirk Close, as 
near the church as they could get, the minister, Rev. Mr. Harvey, of Glasgow, 
standing in a door of a grain loft, preaching the Gospel to the women and 
children accommodated within the loft and to the men without crowding the 
close. It was clear that there was to be a law case that would be decided by the 
Court of Session, if not the House of Lords, iluch, it was felt, would depend 
upon an active, energetic and wise law committee, and such a committee was 
appointed, Mr. Greenlees being unanimously appointed convener. His work on 
that committee abundantly justified the confidence the congregation exercised 
in him; and when after years of litigation, the congregation had its property 
restored to it by the decision of the Court of Session, there were two men to 
whom it was felt by all that very special thanks were due — one was the Rev. 
Dr. Stnithers of Glasgow, who was unwearied in hunting up documents, min- 
utes, and precedents for the instruction of the law agents in conducting the 
case, and the other was Mr. Greenlees, who as convener of the la%v committee, 
did whatever could be done to help the right to prevail, and to cheer the con- 
gregation when prospects were darkest. Regaining possession of the church, 
the congregation pursued its work with new ardor and in every departure of 
congregational usefulness Mr. Greenlees took a warm and deep interest, thor- 
oughly sympathising and co-operating with the minister in all his efforts to 
promote the spiritual progress. He was one of the ciders who gave the late 
revered Dr. Boj-d his call to Campbeltown. As long as he was able to attend 
church he did so with perfect regularity, when unable to hear in his ordinary 
seat coming as near the pulpit as possible. Though so far advanced in life he 
never allowed himself to live in the past or to get out of touch with the pres- 
ent. He continued to read to the end of his days. The range of his reading 
narrowed as the years advanced and the eyes became dim, and was confined 
to three lines — his daily newspaper, by which he kept him.self acquainted with 
politics, not of his own country only, but of other countries as well, especially 
France; his second line of reading was a massive volume of devotional divinity; 
and his third line of reading was his bible. As his infirmities increased his 
newspaper had to be given up; after a time his volume of divinity had to be 
given up ; but his daily bible portion he continued to read to the last. Touch- 
ing it was to see the brass fingermark pointing out the chapter and verse he 
had reached in his regular reading, and to notice the progress he had made 
through the bible. In his earlier j'ears he was connected with the fishing in- 
dustry, and always took a keen interest in the fishermen of the town. This 
interest he continued to the last and nothing pleased him belter than to watch 
them from his windows getting their skiffs in order and going out to their 
nightly toil. He and his wife celebrated their golden and diamond weddings.

He was buried in KUkerran Cemetery. The flags on the steamers and shipping 
in the harbour were lowered to half-mast, and the various town and church 
bells were tolled at intervals. At the Parochial Board meeting, Ex-Provost 
Colville referred to the deceased in the following terms: "Gentlemen, I can- 
not take this place today without reference, in a very few words, to the absence 
of our Chairman. We all sympathise with him and his family circle in their 
bereavement. When one of so notable age as that to which Mr. Daniel Green- 
lees has reached is taken away — one all whose unblemished life has been passed 
in this community — it seems like the closing of an epoch. And, gentlemen, 
although it has not been customary for us of this Board, in exactly similar cir- 
cumstances, to record our emotions in the minute book, still I am confident 
that you will allow me to express our feeling of sincere condolence on this 
occasion, and that you will join me in asking the Inspector to convey these 
sentiments to Mr. Greenlees our Chairman. If you agree with me in this we 
may fittingly show our acquiescence and respect by standing." The request 
was universally complied with. - •
