** While there is presently a Thurlow in Hastings [County], the one referred to in the Records was a settlement on the Black Creek Road between Poland and Joe's Lake. It is presently the site of the Lavant Community Hall (in the old Thurlow School) and the Lavant Firehall. It was named for the Thurlow Family that settled the area and later moved to Michigan. The area is still called Thurlow by older inhabitants of Lavant, Darling & Dalhousie [Townships].
