Full Text

Mr. and Mrs. Fred B. Henry, Winona, quietly celebrated the 50th anniversary of their wedding at their home in Winona last week. They were married in Winona on January 7, 1885 by Rev. Mooney, and have spent their married life in this district. They are both descendants of United Empire Loyalists. Mrs. Henry, before her marriage, was Jennie Pauline Smith, daughter of the late Ransom R. Smith, and Caroline Jones, both of whom were also life-long residents. Mr. Henry was born in Burford Tp. in 1860, a son of the late Isaac Brock Henry and Penelope Lewis. He came to Winona with the family in 1871 when 11 years of age. It is interesting to note that his father was born on the day that General Sir Isaac Brock was killed at the Battle of Queenston Heights, and was named after that great soldier. Mr. Henry's grandfathers on both sides of the family fought on the side of the British in that battle.

They have one daughter, Laura (Mrs. W.J. Dowler), of Winnipeg, Man., and two grandchildren, a boy and a girl, all of whom were present for the anniversary. Mr. and Mrs. Henry are adherents of Fifty United Church. Mr. Henry is at present a member of Saltfleet township council, to which body he was first elected in 1889. He did not serve continuously but his present term marks his 23rd year as a member. He was township treasurer for 5 years and is a past reeve and past deputy reeve. He recalled that when elected to council in 1889, the amount of taxes collected for all purposes in the township was $7569.05. Since then, although the village of Stoney Creek and Hamilton Beach have both been taken out of the township, such changes have taken place that the amount of taxes for the year 1930 was $172,283.
