Full Text

James A. Ross, ex-M.P.P., and Mrs. Ross of Wellandport celebrated their golden anniversary on Saturday evening as guests of honor at a dinner arranged by their sons and daughters at General Brock Hotel, Niagara Falls. Married at the home of the bride's parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas H. Kay of Wellandport, on January 16th, 1893, with Rev. R.L. Ockley officiating, Mr. and Mrs. Ross have spent practically their entire married life as residents of Wellandport, Mr. Ross having resigned as principal of Scott Street School, St. Thomas, in 1896, to enter the commercial field.

Since that time he has become a widely known and highly respected citizen through his prominence in business and political circles. In 1908 he was elected member of the provincial parliament for the riding of Monck, being the first Conservative member ever elected for the riding, which had been held by the late Hon. Richard Harcourt for 30 years. He is also the author of a volume of poems, "Canada First", Dominion Day and many other poems published in magazines from time to time. Mrs. Ross has always taken keen interest in all the progressive activities of the United Church W.A. during the past 26 years. Four children comprise their family, J. Leighton Ross, barrister, of Hamilton; Miss Eula J. Ross of St. Catharines; Romaine K. Ross, L.L.B., barrister, St. Catharines, and Mrs. M.E. Solyk (Romak) of Merritton. They have three grandchildren.
