Mary and Willard James Genealogy– Glenda Mahoney

Standard

From Glenda Mahoney

This is my great grandmother Mary I knew this existed and my sister finally found it Thanks Deb!

Mary was a very independent woman when she left for the West. She left her 3 young daughters with their Dad When I was young a family from the west would always visit and stay at the farm It took me years to figure out the connection.

My grandmother gave my daughter Tami this basket When Mary passed this was what my grandmother received from her Mother.

Not sure if there were items in the basket My grandmother Ruby gave it to Tami to use as a bed for her baby bunny rabbit When I found out the history of the basket I confiscated from Bunny immediately Lol

As a family we have virtually nothing of our Great Grandmother so each piece of her is precious But the gift that she gave us were her three daughters and son We spent many happy hours visiting Aunt Edith and Aunt Lizzie and Uncle Johnny and their families That is the greatest gift of all.

Willard (October 9, 1917 – October 4, 1956) (son)
Mary (January 23, 1886 – March 7, 1964) (mother) (Pioneers)
 Mary James came alone fromLanark, Ontario to the OBED area where she had a little
store. At OBED she met Duncan Carmichael whom later bought a dairy in Hinton
on the east side of Hardisty Creek. The Hinton Dairy was run by Mary James and
her son Willard. The land was then sold to Vic Webb.
 The farm house on the James Ranch was the old Bliss station which was originally
located near the current Brick at 566 Switzer Drive. This farm house is now located
at 187 Mountain Street.
 Willard married Marie Woodley and lived in Hinton until his death in 1956. Mary
also remained here and looked after Mr. Carmichael until his death. She also
passed away in Hinton.

John Edwards

Every member of the crew received a small version of the large poster. The large one was three to four feet in size. It was in the front window of McCann’s Billiard Hall right into the late 1960’s when, I believe, the Pool Hall closed. This was likely the most honoured location in town for it.

As the victory was national in scale and since most of the crew went to war in a year or two, the townspeople must have felt very special about the crew members.

Anyone who’s ever paddled in a good war canoe team will know about the pain and bonding which comes with the synchronicity of the strokes over a long distance. There are no heroes. Every paddler is equal and must dig deep on every stroke.

This image from the 1920 Canadian Canoe Association Regatta shows the war canoe team reaching shore. Events took place at Lake Park on Mississippi Lake. “Carleton Place proved a genuine surprise in the CCA Regatta held here today. The Junction town humbled the haughty Parkdales in the half mile war canoe race in a magnificent finish and were second in the mile. the romped away in the Senior Fours in another stirring finish.” – Ottawa Evening Journal, August 9, 1920.

Probably in the back may be myself, Wendy Armstrong, Catherine Elliot, Margot Findlay, Debbie Hine, Louise Hine etc. The war canoe changed every year…

Did you know that the Canoe Club held weekly sports in front of their club house at the foot of Charles Street: tilting jousts, four man canoe racing against the war canoe crew, crab and gunwale races were some of the events staged.

This hand drawn map from 1888, shows details of the Caldwell Property, which later became Riverside Park. It’s very interesting. The building marked as “Carriage and blacksmith shops” later served as the Canoe Club headquarters.–Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum-Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum

This amazing postcard was part of a recent donation. Wow! It’s a composite photo by Hammond Studios of Carleton Place, and celebrates the 1907 Carleton Place Canoe Club War Canoe CHAMPIONS OF CANADA!

The C.C.A. was held in Montreal that year, and the C.P.C.C. decisively took the half mile and the mile War Canoe events.

The town organized a “grand procession” for the boys when they returned. “Headed by the Citizen’s Band, Commodore Cram, the Mayor and council, club patrons, the victorious crew paraded from the clubhouse to town hall in a handsomely decorated and illuminated carriage, followed by a crowd of citizens and about 200 boys with torches, many in costume. The town hall was packed in every part – it was jammed inside and outside. By the time the procession arrived pandemonium reigned. ” Carleton Place Herald, Aug. 20, 1907

Photo-From the CPHS year book

With regards to Milano’s, there was a music store selling new CD’s when I opened the restaurant. It was owned by a guy named Bruce who used to come in for lunch. Great store and he employed several high school students. As a teenager, I spent all of my allowance on music from Sam the Record Man and others, so I thought Bruce’s store was great. He was in business for 5 years, but he told me he wasn’t making enough profit to stay open – that was his time limit to become viable.

After that, it was a sheet music store. It was also a coffee shop called ‘Sounds Like Coffee’ which was run by Roger Weldon and his girlfriend. They marketed to high school students and allowed smoking in their establishment to attract that segment. Then it was Simon Gold.

Today is the celebration of life for this Beautiful lady…. Now she isn’t my grandma but I consider her my grandmother….Grandma Elsie was such a beautiful loving and caring person. This amazing woman touched so many people lives and her smile would light up a room.

I would joke around her when I would see her or on our almost daily phone calls and then she would laugh and giggle….I am so going to miss talking to her or seeing her….

My 100 year old grandma Elsie would call us if we missed a day of calling her to make sure we were OK…..Can you imagine calling to make sure we’re OK….. She knew my phone number by heart…. 🙂

Grandma Elsie I will forever ❤️ love you and miss you but I will never forget you xoxo…..

We lost an amazing person but God gained another angle to look over us….

From U of Toronto Alumni Magazine

Good Morning Linda,

As requested, I have attached what pictures I could find that I thought were appropriate to Carleton Place. My Dad was the picture taker in the family so not many of him.  The pictures should be self-explanatory in the name but if not, please let me know.

My Dad was born September 30, 1931 in Toronto and lived there until he and my Mom moved to Carleton Place in July 1956.  He went to the University of Toronto for medical school.  Also, he was on its swim team and was Canadian University champion in the Butterfly (early 1950’s).

My Dad first worked with Dr. Johnson, hence his name on the stain glass window of the Johnson home.  After that he set up the Centennial Medical Center with Dr. Dobb, Dr. Ferguson, and Dr. Redfern (who moved to Texas in 1978).  My parents moved to North Carolina in May 1978.

He also loved a good poker game, bridge game, or chess game if anyone was willing.  He was also an avid reader with special interest in history using the library, always.  He was a great promoter of libraries.

I hope this is helpful.

Love Bonnie Hanham

He gave up a huge Carleton Place practise to move to North Carolina in 1978. He was a member of St. Mary Magdalene Episcopal Church, the Lions Club, and Sandhills Regional Library Board, and he served as chairman of the Moore County Library Board and delivered Meals on Wheelswhen he was forced to retire after illness.

When a baby was born in Carleton Place, and he delivered them, he had a photo taken and all the photos were all posted on his outside wall of his office for parents and parents to be to see.

He was a warden of St. James Anglican Church in Carleton Place from 1964-1967 and was successful in raising money for a St. James renovation with the above article that got attention and got the parishioners out. Read-Debate to Close St. James — Mary Cook– 1967

Before OHIP he would think about the patient first and think about payment after. He had a sense of humour, and loved history. The clipping above was part of the extra billing with OHIP strike in 1986 and the lone doctor working was Dr. Hanham at the Centennial Medical Centre where he worked.

Dr. Hanham served on many many boards— two full terms when he was a Carleton Place councillor and was instrumental in insisting Carleton Place have fluoride on water when he was on council. He said he would sue the town if they did not do it and it happened after many many years of in-house fighting.

When he left Carleton Place a great void occurred in Carleton Place. After a few doctors came and went, Dr. Higham took over his practise.

Marjorie Bryant

Great idea. He was my Dr for many years and delivered my 3 children. I had the pleasure of speaking to him years ago when he was back in CP visiting friends.

I was one of Dr. Hanhams first deliveries in the CP hospital. Too bad we lost our maternity ward to Almonte.

Dr. Hanham was my favorite doctor growing up. He was always able to keep my mother calm when one of us 3 kids was sick or injured. Then again, I loved playing with his children as well. Miss you very much, Jerry.

Dr Dobb was my Dr & then Dr Webb took over for him. I remember your mom working for Dr Dobb. So many memories.

Sharpens the brain trying to remember.

Doris Quinn

Dr. Hanham took over Dr. Johnston ‘s practice when Doctor Johnston retired.That would be around 1967. Dr Hanham delivered one of my children.

My Dad was on the town council for a bit in the 60s, I think. It was the same time as Mr. Cook. He was on the school board from 74 to 78, I think. Also, both my parents were very active in St. James Anglican Church. He was also the coroner for the area.

Blames Lord’s Day Act For Animals’ Death. James D. Eadie of Vars, Ont., has found the Sabbath Observance law a great hardship. March 1907

James was bringing a consignment of selected imported Clydesdale animals from St. John N.B., to Carleton Place, and through delay and the continual shunting about during Saturday night to make room for other trains that had to be held over, two of the animals died.

Both were mares with foal and were valued at well on to $1,000 apiece. Mr. Eadie is one of Eastern Ontario’s steadiest importers of Clydesdales and had brought this lot of Allies and mares over from Scotland. With those that died on the journey, they were worth in the neighborhood of $10,000. The animals had Just come off the ship after a two weeks’ voyage, but with a quick trip overland and a rest at the end of that time would, the owner firmly believes, have easily withstood the trip.

On the way up from St. John on Saturday night his train was run into the yards east of Farnham, Quebec but Mr. Eadie was too busy looking after the stock to inquire the name. He says that the cars were shunted and jerked about the yards nearly all night to make room for other trains. This, as every stockman knows, is harder on animals than even cold or short rations, and it was little wonder that animals not in the best of shape succumbed to it.

For this reason the owner claims that the animals would have pulled through if they had had a trip through. Out at the fair grounds Mr. Eadie told his experiences to some of his brother stockmen, who expressed their sympathy and also the conviction that live stock should have the privilege of a through trip. The remainder of the some dozen or so head of horses reached their destination all right and are resting up to for the sale which is to be held at the Queen’s hotel, Carleton Place, Ontario on Tuesday afternoon next, under the auspices of the Carleton Place Horse Association.

This is Andrea McCoy-Naperstkow from the The Lanark Federation of Agriculture and I have known her for two years online. Wednesday was the first time we met and hugged each other hard. It’s like I have known her forever. I also got lost in Perth (who does that?) and she came to rescue me. You might remember her mum Inez McCoy who used to write for The Canadian. I now have a very special friend for life.

She is also mistress of the radio on BARNYARD BREAKDOWN on Valley Heritage every Friday at 12:05 after the news 98.7

Parishioners up in arms over bid to sell church

By Mary Cook Citizen special correspondent CARLETON PLACE-

What happens to a congregation, when it reads in the local newspaper that its church is no longer needed, and since its purpose has become so insignificant, the only solution is the auction block? The congregation gets angry. That’s what happens. And that’s exactly what the wardens of St. James Anglican Church wanted to happen.

A couple of weeks ago a large block ad appeared in the local weekly paper, stating that a debate would be held to deal with the following resolution: “Resolved: that the church of St. James no longer fulfils any significant purpose in the community and, therefore, the congregation should be disbanded and the church property be sold and the money realized contributed to more worthy causes.”

Even though the ad clearly stated it was a debate only, the congregation buzzed with comment and the parish hall was packed to capacity “to fight for our church,” as several put it. Dr. W.J. Hanham, a member of the affirmative team, said that only 10 per cent of the 1,500 members appeared in church on a regular basis. Even more startling was the fact that about 30 people contribute more than half of the entire church budget. Of the membership, he went on, only 15 per cent was under 35 years of age. He further reddened faces of those present by stating that local charities received more from members and the community than did St. James Anglican Church.

At this point, a parishioner jumped to his feet and demanded to know why an expensive addition was opened recently, if the church was in such need. Dr. Hanham assured the questioner he was sure the church “could muddle on with out the addition, but the wardens were not only concerned with the money issue, they were also alarmed over the steady decline in attendance, fellowship and the spiritual atmosphere of the entire congregation.”

Supporting Dr. Hanham were Allan Johnsson and Ormond Giles who reported a steady decline in church attendance all over the world. They claimed a new set of standards, the Jet Age and a decline in personal morals were fast making every church obsolete. Mr. Johnsson started a protest from the negative debaters when he said that no building is necessary for anyone to worship God. The church, he said, is failing from the lack of “spiritual support.”

On the negative side, Mrs. George H. Lossemore, herself an Anglican minister’s widow; Stewart Lancaster, a lay reader in the church; and Gerry Tinsley, deputy warden, argued the need for unity and its power as seen in the Communist world today. They cited the need for spiritual guidance and the great service the church could render. During the debate, several parishioners jumped to their feet to interject, and it was apparent that many felt strongly in favor of retaining the church and its property.

Ted Lemaistre, the rector’s warden, had a difficult time as moderator of the debate and several times had to bring the panel back to the issue at hand. Although the affirmative seemed to have a strong argument, when the vote was called at the close of the debate, the emotions of those present emphatically indicated they were determined “to retain the church and its property.” Whether they will support it with dollars and their attendance, remains to be seen.
