Interesting about the Newman Insurance Co. buying the building from "Miss Colden", as we knew her. I was under the impression that the ownership had transferred to my grandmother on J. Bone's death and that it had been sold shortly after she died in 1984. Between my mother's death in 1977 and my grandmother's, we used to get statements from Victoria & Grey Trust Co. detailing the rents charged to the various tenants. They didn't change between 1958 and 1977!! One dentist had had his office renovated and the floor strengthened to accept his equipment and the rent stayed the same at $25/mo. Someone else was paying $5/mo - probably fine in 1958.... I don't imagine my grandfather would have objected, though... if they had been tenants all along.

It was a beautiful building - possibly one of the original old Ontario stone ones. There was a fireplace in Granddaddy's office with a Phoenix in it. He represented Phoenix Insurance, and he probably got a chuckle out of placing the sculpture in the fireplace. He had a great sense of humour.

BTW, the cottage was designed so that it took advantage of all possible cross-drafts, since there was no air conditioning back in 1920. It was always comfortable in hot weather. Wouldn't it be great if more buildings were designed that way?

I don't think that Newman McCarten bought the building just the insurance business.  When the business was sold we opted to go with another broker rather than Newman and it was in 1989 that change took place.  I have been in the Jamieson Bone offices since that time and the new tenant has maintained the integrity of the office somewhat.
My husband's plumbing and heating business had the privilege of the maintenance of the water system at the cottage and the plumbing and heating systems at Montrose.  When the cottage was sold in the late eighties and renovated extensively the company installed the new plumbing and heating systems.  I believe that the home has been sold since again as has Montrose.
Coincidentally, my own paternal grandparents were born and raised in Dalry, Ayr and some descendents still reside there.

Any relation to Muirhead Bone the artist? his nephew? Drummond Bone had a studio in Ayr, taught at Glasgow School of Art, I have one of his pic's.     Skoosh

What a small world, eh? When and why did your grandparents emigrate; where did they go? Have you ever been to Dalry? I have - one afternoon about 25 years ago. Lovely little town. When I got off the train from Glasgow, the station attendants asked me what I was doing there! LOL! When I told them, they wanted to know Grand-daddy's name, but they didn't recognise it. I wandered the main street - this was really a small village, I think - and just as Grand-daddy said, every other door led to a pub! I didn't dare go into any, thinking they would be filled with men and no women.... So eventually I left.

As for Muirhead and Drummond Bone, I sure wouldn't mind being related!! My grandfather was very musical, self taught on the piano and had a great signing voice, but no artistic talent. Still, I can't think of anyone else whose genes might have led to my Aunt NorNor (the party girl!) as well as my sister, being so artistic. You never know. I do wish I knew more about the Scottish side of the family.

My father and his brother were the only family that emigrated to Canada in 1947 where my father met my mother.  My father's family moved from Dalry to Glasgow in 1920 but some of the relations still live in Dalry, Kilwinning and Irvine area to this day.  I keep in touch with one cousin in Dalry a few times a year.  My father taught high school in Picton and I lived in Belleville...still do in a way just north of.
Family history is what we do on this site, tracing your Bone family should be quite easy.  I haven't run into any connection to my 10 or so Dalry families though.

You may want to have a look at the Ayrshire Roots site, they have the Ardrossan/Saltcoats Intimation index.  I checked it and has the marriage of Thomas to Catherine, some births of theirs, marriages and the death notices of both David and Jamieson. David married Jean Cunningham Wylie (another of my family names) 1906 in Dalry, he died Feb 1962 in Canada.
I also have a book called "Dalry Remembered" which is now out of print, its a pictorial of Dalry with many Dalry families and their businesses mentioned.  What was the name of Thomas's Tannery?
