Historic EVENTS in and around Welland


[Welland Tribune, 25 May 1888]

MR. JOHN SHANNAHAN is starting a new grocery store in the building formerly occupied by the late Mrs. Emma Price.

WELLAND WATER WORKS- The time for receiving tenders for excavating and masonry at pump house has been extended to Monday evening next, May 28th at same hour.

THE Salvation Army have been negotiating for the purchase of the old Methodist church on East Main street, but as yet their headquarters have not furnished the funds for the purchase. Unless the building is soon sold it is the proprietor’s intention to cut it in two, and make two dwellings.

SOLD OUT- Mr. Robert Moore has sold out his furniture, tenancy and good will of the Windsor House, to Mr. John R. Dowd, who will take possession next Tuesday. Mr. Moore returns to Amigari. In his departure, Welland loses a good citizen, a good landlord, and a good fellow generally. Mr. Dowd will make a popular landlord.

LANDLORD RAMEY is to be congratulated on the extensive improvements being made to the Welland House. New and modern windows have replaced the old ones on the Main street front, the platform has been removed and the sidewalk lowered, and when the painter finishes his work the Welland House will rate A 1.

Marriage must be a good thing for those who have tried it once are almost sure to try it again and as often as the opportunity occurs. Widowers and widows are far likelier to wed again than those who have never tasted wedded bliss. As an illustration we have this week the wedding of Mr. Ambrose Ellsworth and Mrs. Alex Doan, as elsewhere noted. With such examples, poor old bachelors  and maids need shrink no longer from Hymen’s bonds but boldly make the blissful plunge.

    Does anyone have information on the Ramey that married the Hamlin?
