Jamieson Bone, Belleville Ontario
« on: Wednesday 07 January 09 15:29 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

having done a google search we have discovered that there is a road  called Jamieson Bone Rd in Belleville Ontario.  We belive this may be named after our ancestor who emigrated from Scotland.(although could just be coincidence)

Would love any information about his life in Canada and why he may have had a road named after him.

Thanks

HI Kama,

I see Jamieson married Florence Graham in 1912 in Belleville.

Was he in any of the wars?  Alot of the roads are named after veteran's in Ontario.

You could email the City of Belleville who may have information.

Aha!!  He was the Mayor of Belleville  :)

Jamieson Bone 1934-1935

An insurance broker, he served as alderman in 1919 and 1920 and later became Mayor of Belleville in 1938 and 1939

He was active in the Ontario Property Owner's Association. He served as Rotary President from 1934-1935.

Aside from this, he is remembered by the street in Belleville's Industrial Park.

Sounds as though he owned a Company, and was not a union fan ( note quote  about strikers -  EEK :o )
( halfway down page,  & mentions him three times)

May have been a steel manufacturing as the road named after him has several listings of steel Manuf. on the road to this day...one has a name that might still be his old operation...would need to be verified....
