It is believed that the Reverend John Burns, Presbyterian Minister, was the first Teacher of the Niagara School. Till lately, there were several living who were his pupils both before and after the war of 1812. He was taken prisoner and it is said preached to his captors. The late Judge Burns was the son of this old Niagara Teacher and Preacher. [Source]
