Now Residing at Almonte, Were Married on April 21, 1885, at Pembroke. Dinner Party Held to Mark Auspicious Occasion.
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Young, Almonte, Ont., formerly of North Bay, Ont, and Ottawa, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary quietly at their home, Almonte, Ont., on Sunday, April 21. Mr. and Mrs. Young were married on April 21, 1885, at Pembroke, Ont., by the Rev. Mr. Forsyth, the bride before her marriage being Miss Mary Anne Cattell, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Cattell.
Mr. Young is a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Young, Appleton, Ont., pioneers of Lanark county. ( read Ramsay Settlers 101) For many years Mr. Young worked at his trade in the woollen mills of Almonte, but due to impaired health moved to the North country and entered the employ of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
After seventeen years’ service with that company, with residence at North Bay, he was retired in 1924, afterwards coming to Ottawa and ultimately returning to Almonte. Mr. Young has reached the good age of 77, and Mrs. Young is four years his Junior.
Mr. and Mrs. Young have two surviving children, a daughter, Mrs. J. A. Campbell, Regina, Sask., and a son V. M. Young, of Ottawa. Their eldest son, Herbert Cecil, passed away some years ago. In addition there is three grandchildren, Miss Vivien Campbell, and the Misses Constance and Betty-Anne Young.
Mr. Young has four surviving sisters, Mrs. Marion Reid, Ottawa, Mrs. Wm. France, Marcellus, N.Y., Mrs. Agnes Munroe, Carleton Place, and Mrs. Robert McNaughton, Lacombe, Alta. Mrs. Young has one sister and a brother living, Mrs. Wm. McQuestion. North Bay, Ont., and Mr. Wm. Cattell, Redlands, California.
Owing to the unavoidable absence of their daughter, plans for a formal reception for the occasion were postponed. A small dinner party was held, which in addition to the immediate members of their family, included the Rev. A. J, Fowley, and Mrs. Fowley, pastor of St. John’s Presbyterian church, Almonte, of which Mr. Young is a member of the board of managers.
