1002 Summary from newspaper clippings written by Fay Bennett

The McCoy Hotel aka The McCoy House was located on Main St., Cobden just west of the railway tracks.
John McCoy came to Cobden c 1880.

John McCoy died Mar 5, 1908 and in April 1908, Mary McCoy, widow of John McCoy applied for transfer of licence to herself.

In April 1910, the Village of Cobden went ?dry? and both hotels, The Grand Union and The McCoy House, closed their doors.

In June 1910, an advertisement in the Ottawa Citizen listed the McCoy House for sale. It was described as having 20 bedrooms, large dining room, sample and waiting rooms, good stable and shed accommodation. It was known to be the hotel to host the commercial trade, during their stay in Cobden.

A group of temperance league investors leased the McCoy House in July, 1910 and re-opened it.

Mr. John Devine managed the hotel for 7 years (c1912-1919) until it was sold by the McCoy Estate to Mr. Dan Roach in Sept 1919.

The hotel burned April 4, 1926 when owned by James Mallard.

1007 The first hospital in St. Lawrence County, Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center opened in 1885 as the Ogdensburg City Hospital and Orphan Asylum. Although always a community-owned organization, it was managed by the Grey Nuns, Sisters of Charity, until 1976. The hospital's name changed twice: first in 1918 to A. Barton Hepburn Hospital to honor the local banker and donor, and again in 2000 to Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center in recognition of an exceptional gift from its own Dr. E. Garfield Claxton. The hospital was the home of a nursing school, with its first graduating class in 1905 and its last in 1968. With an innovative group of caregivers and community members, Claxton-Hepburn was the first to bring many new services to the region, including an artificial kidney machine in the late 1960s, long before many urban hospitals had one. In the 1990s and 2000s, the county's first dialysis center and comprehensive cancer center were constructed. Today, Claxton-Hepburn serves as a regional referral center for dialysis, radiation and medical oncology, psychiatry, and wound healing. CLAXTON, Dr. Edwin Garfield (I3891557)

1014 This writer fondly remembers Mac & Myrtle. They were my neighbours when I was growing up (a block away). I walked past their home 4x/day going to school. Many days, Myrtle would have cookies ready for a treat after school. I always admired Myrtle's peonies that grew across the front of their lawn next to the sidewalk, a pretty flower. I grew up spending a lot of time at the curling rink with my curling family. Mac & Myrtle were regulars there as well. Myrtle's sister Hazel Davis was also a curler - in Eganville. My parents curled there before the Cobden club was built.

Hello again Faye,

Many thanks for your reply.

William Cochran/e Senior: I do not know, unfortunately, who his parents were in Ireland. All I know is that he came from Antrim, Ireland, in 1844 , via New York (no proof, info just handed down verbally from our family). William and Margaret had a large family and my grandfather, John, was abou t the second youngest. There were many sisters and I do have their names (not who they married) and birth dates, I believe. I grew up in Winnipeg where my father, Stewart Matthews Cochrane went because of his cousin (Alex Hudson, son of Elizabeth Cochran Hudson) who worked for the CPR.

James Smith, Westmeath: My great grandfather was James Smith from Scotland, son of James Smith and Mary (Jennie) Jenkins. At the moment I am trying t o verify his family in Scotland (records in Scotland are great). According to a 1912 newspaper write-up at the time of their (Margaret Ann Stewart, wife - parents were Jacob and Margaret [Gamble] Stewart, Goulburn) 50th wedding anniversary, September 5, 1912, James Smith came to Canada in 1858. Margaret Stewart Smith came to Canada as a baby in 1840 from Antrim, Ireland. I have a photo taken at the time of Margaret Ann & James Smith's 50th weddin g anniversary as well as a copy of this write-up. Christena Smith Cochrane was the daughter of James and Margaret Smith.

Do you have any information on Margaret Ann (Matthews) Cochran's sister Elizabeth who married Thomas Carmichael, Alice Township and raised a fairl y large family; and also their brother John Matthews who also farmed in that area? I have very limited (next to nothing) information on the Matthews except they came from Ireland. I notice in the BDM records from Alice Township, there seems to be a lot of other Matthews but I have no idea if they were related to Margaret, Elizabeth & John.

If you would like more details on the families of my ancestors, I do ha ve a little more detail, and I could also mail you a copy of the 50th wedding anniversary write-up.

1030 When I was a kid, I spent most of my time at the curling rink in the winter with my parents. I knew Lorne & Madelaine from curling circles. Lorne was an avid curler and Madelaine would watch his games and bring her lapdog with her. I was fascinated by the dog. Lorne always had a treat for me and my friend Jean who also spent many hours at the curling rink with her parents. The treat was usually a chocolate bar or a pop out of the pop machine. They were always so kind to us. COOKE, Lawrence Blackwell (I6743)
