237 DR. ARTHUR EDWARD ROSS, died on November 15, 1952, aged 82. He was born at Cobden, Ont. in 1870
and graduated from Queen's Medical School in 1897. He
was an outstanding football player. Following graduation he practised medicine in King
ston and was later attached to the medical faculty of the university, rising from a demonstratorship to a professor
ship.
When the call came for volunteers for the Boer War
he enlisted as a private, serving with the Canadian,
Australian and Imperial troops in South Africa.
He remained with the militia and was given command
of a Field Ambulance in the First Great War.
Canad. M. A. J.
Feb. 1953, vol. 68
Early in 1917 he received the appointment of director
of medical services for the whole corps, and in August
1918, succeeded his chief as D.M.S. This brought with it
promotion to the rank of brigadier general in the
C.A.M.C.
At about this time General Ross was offered a higher
post in the medical services in England and would have
received a higher rank, but he declined the appointment
saying that he preferred to remain with "the boys" on
the firing line.
During his service he had full charge of the combined
British and Canadian Medical Services in the battles of
Vimy Ridge, Hill 70, Paschendaele, Amiens, and the
second battle of Arras.
The methods used by him to combat trench feet and
mustard gas were adopted by all armies fighting on the
Western Front. These saved thousands of lives for continued service.
For this long and notable service General Ross became
at different times a Companion of the Orders of the Bath
and of St. Michael and St. George. The King of the
Belgians conferred on him the Croix de Guerre, and he
was mentioned six times besides receiving the three war
service medals.
During the only leave of absence he took during the
war General Ross visited Edinburgh and receivecd the
honorary degree of LL.D. from Edinburgh University.
Queen's University also conferred a similar degree.
Dr. Ross, always an ardent conservative, entered active
politics in 1908 and was elected to the Ontario Legislature in 1911, 1914, and 1919. In 1921 he was elected to
the Federal House and served as member till 1935. His
widow and 2 sons survive.

246 Fay Bennett took an early retirement in 2012 from a career in health care spanning 33 years. She graduated from Queen's University with a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy and worked in that profession in both the hospital and home care sectors providing direct service and later as manager of therapy and case management services.

Fay is married and has two daughters. She thoroughly enjoys spending time with her two granddaughters. Fay grew up in Cobden and has lived her entire life there, except for 4 years in Kingston during university years and 3 years in Renfrew when she and her husband Earl moved to be closer to work locations. However, the draw back home to Cobden was too strong!

Fay's interest in family history began at a young age. The Sunday afternoon outings and long weekend trips with her parents usually consisted of, or ended in, a visit to a relative(s). On the journey to and fro, her parents would point out farms or homes that had previously been owned by a close or very distant family member. By high school years, she was recording the genealogical data she had gleaned from these visits. Her interest in preserving family history has culminated in the authoring of a number of books, research aids and articles, as well as assisting other budding genealogy buffs in producing their own family history.

Fay has been a member of many Ontario based genealogical groups over the years and has served on the executive for the Upper Ottawa Valley Genealogical Group in a number of capacities. Recently, she has been volunteering with The Whitewater Historical Society, documenting the history of Cobden Businesses & Buildings as well as serving as volunteer archivist. She has also completed some formal training in genealogical studies. Fay has volunteered on a number of Board of Directors including executive positions of various community organizations. Her most recent service was Chair of the Board of Directors for Lanark Renfrew Health and Community Services.

Fay has delighted in the additional time to focus on genealogy since retirement and has finally had the opportunity to launch & continually add to this website.

The purpose of FaysGenealogy.Com is to:
1. Share family history information and photographs with family and fellow researchers
2. Connect with researchers interested in families in the Whitewater Region (Ross & Westmeath Townships, Cobden) who would like to share information, documents and photos
3. Create an electronic photo archive of early Ross and Westmeath Township families

If you would like to share information, comment on the website (please do!), provide documents or photos for the website or request information, please email Fay at: faygen@nrtco.net
