History Biographical
Abraham (b. unknown d. November 17, 1970) and Freida (Hymavitch) Marcovitch, along with their eldest children Rachael (b. 1899) and Max (b. 1900), arrived in Montreal via Ellis Island, New York City, from Rumania in 1903. The family originally settled in Montreal as Freida had two sisters there. After finding peddling in Montreal unsuitable, the family bought land in Piperville (part of greater Gloucester) Ontario. In 1920, the family bought land in Bowesville described by some “the most beautiful spot in the world”. Their location contained two rows of maple trees which made a splendid view. The Marcovitch family grew to included Rachael's husband Ben Tuckman, Max, Nathan, Rose, Tom (m. Fanny Marcus), Lillian (m. Sam Saslove), Ben, and Sam. The farm produced peas, beans, and Golden Bantam corn. The corn and potatoes were bagged and sold to the Ottawa market vendors. It also became a “hospitable visiting place” for many Ottawa Jewish families, especially in the summer. The Marcovitch's property included a farm house and farm buildings originally built by the Bowes family. In 1949 the property was expropriated by the federal government for the enlargement of the Uplands Airport (now the Ottawa International Airport). Freida Marcovitch headed a citizens group protesting the first offer made by the Canadian government and advocated for fair compensation. The Bowesville farm community disappeared by 1951 with some residents resettling along the neighbouring River Road, however, most scattered to various other localities.
Notes
1. Mrs Karp, in an April, 2006 phone call related that Golden Bantam Corn was a small varietal of corn having only 9 rows and is now unavailable. 2. Source of quotations: Book, "Bowesville: A Place to Remember" by Grace Johnston, 1988.
