Possible Reference to Stewart Lowhall Gunn:

Fredrick Walker, owner of the Oakwood Lodge, lived in Oakwood Park year round. He was referred to as one of the “four horsemen of St. John’s by-the-Lake,” along with Colin C. Scatcherd, William C. Dance and Stuart L. Gunn. These four men petitioned the Bishop of Huron to form a congregation of the Church of England in Grand Bend in 1949. These same four men were instrumental in successfully canvassing the community for funds to build the church. Each of the men was dedicated to the church until no longer able.
