From: "Illustrated Historical Atlas Frontenac, Lennox, and Addington Counties, Ont." J. H. Meacham & Co. 1878 .
The subject of our sketch. Mr. Aaron Spike, was born on the 20th February, 1818, on Lot 6 in the fifth concession in the township and province just named. Mr. Spike was married to Miss Eliza Goldsmith, whose parents were Canadians. The issue of this marriage are four children - Phebe Ann, born 23d June, 1845; William Bryan, October 3d, 1848; Eliza Phadila Jane, October 14th, 1850, and Mary Ida Maud, January 3d, 1863.
For more than a quarter of a century Mr. Spike has acted as clerk to the township Council, having been elected so early as 1842, and some fifteen years ago he was appointed to the responsible office of local Magistrate of Justice of the Peace, which clearly shows his usefulness and popularity.
Mr. Spike, within the last sixteen years, has erected on his valuable farm a handsome stone residence, which stands on high ground, and commands an excellent view of the surround country.
