Donald Gillespie a noted landowner and medical doctor on this map. Who also held political positions such as the President of the Liberal-Conservative Association of the riding for 35 years. He was a graduate of Victoria College, Cobourg, and Toronto University, and began the practising as a physican in Cannington in 1861. He enjoyed a practice which extended beyone the usual bounds of a country physician. He also served as Chairman of the School Board, Reeve of Cannington and Councillor for eighteen years.
T.B. White is mostly likely an error and actually represents a man named Truman B. White who helped build and grow Whitevale in much greater strides than the village's original founder John Major whom the village was originally named after Majorville but it was changed to Whitevale to acknowledge the major contributions Truman P. White made to the village.
