The TALES you probably never heard about


Port Colborne News

[Welland Tribune, 23 April 1897]

Residents of this village will be pained to hear of the death of John W. James, who succumbed to an attack of typhoid fever at Rossland, B.C., last month. Mr. James was a member of the staff of engineers engaged here during the canal enlargement, and many warm friends sincerely mourn his death. Deceased was a prominent resident of South Bend, Washington, for several years, and the Herald of that place says: “Too high tribute cannot be paid to the memory of J.W. James. He was a man of noble character, fine integrity and high ability.”
