Anecdote*9 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.
