Anecdote9 July 1935 9 July 1935. The Fourth of July last week was a memorable day for Mr. and Mrs. John H. Maybee. for to them it was not only the anniversary of the Magna Charter of this country, but also their Golden Wedding day. It was in Edwards, where last week Thursday several thousand people were holding forth in a mighty old-fashioned Fourth frolic, that Clara Wood was married to John Maybee fifty years ago. She was the daughter of Silas and Laura Wood, he the son of Nelson and Eliza Poole Maybee. And last week John and Clara looked back with fond memories to those Edwards and other days, he at the age of 75 years, and she at 74.
Mr. and Mrs. Maybee resided in Edwards all the years of their early life. It was in 1910 that they came to Canton to live. Mr. Maybee purchased the Hodskin House, now the Hotel Harrington, in 1911. This he later sold. A quiet man. he nevertheless has a great liking for forging ahead. It was he who built the garage now owned by Percy Dawley.
Shortly after the death of the late Wilfred Woodhead. he purchased the lumber and coal business of Robinson & Woodhead, which he has since conducted in partnership with his son. Nelson.
During the day of July Fourth Mr. and Mrs. Maybee attended a picnic held in their honor at the Russell picnic grounds. Many relatives, including their four children and several grandchildren were present.
During the day many friends and neighbors called to offer congratulations. Gifts of money, a nice floor lamp, and baskets of beautiful flowers were received by the couple.
Among the guests attending the picnic were: Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Maybee and family. Mrs. Ralph Gardiner and daughter. Shirley, of Bergen, Mrs. Mildred McKenney, Miss Jean McKenney, Richard McKenney. Mr. and Mrs. John Gilmore and son Harold, of Dekalb. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Harris, Mr. and Mrs. George Maybee and son, of Oswegatchie. Mr. and Mrs. Bert Maybee, Miss Inez Maybee. Mr. Web. Maybee, of Russell. Mr. and Mrs. Harry Johnson and Miss Ruth Brockway. of Carthage. Miss Jennie Brown, Miss Fredonia Brown, of Dekalb, Mrs. Nan Maybee. of Hermon, Mrs. Delia Maybee. of Edwards.11 
Anecdote* John Henry Maybee was raised in Edwards, N.Y. and nearby Hermon. As a boy, young John lived the life of a rural country lad, working and playing around the farm and swim ming in the nearby Oswegatchie River. One of the highlights of the young boy's life was leading his blind uncle and namesake, John Henry Maybee, around the local sawmill. When he was a little older, John spent a few summers helping his grandfather, Barnard Maybee, with the haying on his farm in the Perch Lake area of Jefferson County, near Evans Mills, N.Y.
John spent much of his time in the woods and soon learned to make his way in a logging camp. He married Clara Belle Wood on July 4, 1885 and they made their living logging in the local area. On July 17, 1897 they bought the Rushton House, a hotel in Edwards. They operated this hotel until 1904, when John had an opportunity to log a vast tract of land up in Canada. Because he needed capital to get started, he looked for a partner and finally found a lawyer in Watertown named Clute who agreed to invest $10,000 for a share in the venture. The tract of land was in Quebec, just across the Ottawa River from Mattawa, Ontario. John got together a crew to work in the woods, logging, trimming trees and skidding them out of the woods. The logs had to be hauled one mile up a mountain and then floated down a flume which had to be built to get the logs down the other side of the mountain to the Ottawa River. The logs were then floated down the river to the sawmill, according to the sales agreement.
This project was completed by 1909 and then John and Clara bought a piece of land in Russell, N.Y. In 1910 they sold this property and moved to Canton, N.Y. so their daughter, Mildred, could attend St. Lawrence University. In 1911 they bought the Hodskin House, a hotel on the banks of the DeGrasse River in the village of Canton. After a few years John sold this hotel and went into semi-retirement. (During all of these years Clara Belle worked side by side with John, working in the kitchen bearing a major share of the more difficult work. The young girls helped in the hotels doing chambermaid work, working in the diningroom and even helping at the front desk. Young Nelson helped in the kitchen when he wasn't in school and showed guests to their rooms when they had the hotel in Canton.) Thereafter, John bought and sold farm property, owning as many as six farms at one time during his later years. He was also the principal backer in a coal and lumber business run by his son, Nelson, in Canton, N.Y. for about 30 years.
It is interesting to note that, although not told in the family, in 1917 John Maybee won a lawsuit against a William A. Sullivan in which he was "allowed $7,061.25 on action to recover on note. This action is brought to recover on a promissory note for $5,000 given in 1907 as part of the purchase price of a quarter interest on about 100 square miles of timber land near Arnprior, Canada." Author's note: although the reference is Arnprior, Ontario, the land actually was on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River; not far from Mattawa, Ontario.

(Witness) Anecdote9 July 1935 The Fourth of July last week was a memorable day for Mr. and Mrs. John H. Maybee. for to them it was not only the anniversary of the Magna Charter of this country, but also their Golden Wedding day. It was in Edwards, where last week Thursday several thousand people were holding forth in a mighty old-fashioned Fourth frolic, that Clara Wood was married to John Maybee fifty years ago.

This he later sold. A quiet man. he nevertheless has a great liking for forging ahead. It was he who built the garage now owned by Percy Dawley.
Shortly after the death of the late Wilfred Woodhead. he purchased the lumber and coal business of Robinson & Woodhead, which he has since conducted in partnership with his son. Nelson.
During the day of July Fourth Mr. and Mrs. Maybee attended a picnic held in their honor at the Russell picnic grounds. Many relatives, including their four children and several grandchildren were present.
During the day many friends and neighbors called to offer congratulations. Gifts of money, a nice floor lamp, and baskets of beautiful flowers were received by the couple.
Among the guests attending the picnic were: Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Maybee and family. Mrs. Ralph Gardiner and daughter. Shirley, of Bergen, Mrs. Mildred McKenney, Miss Jean McKenney, Richard McKenney. Mr. and Mrs. John Gilmore and son Harold, of Dekalb. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Harris, Mr. and Mrs. George Maybee and son, of Oswegatchie. Mr. and Mrs. Bert Maybee, Miss Inez Maybee. Mr. Web.
