Biography

John James MEREDITH was born on 25 Apr 1853 in Orangeville, Dufferin county, Ontario. He married Margery TEGART on 6 May 1872 in Collingwood, Ontario. He died on 14 Jan 1918, at age 64, in Jamestown, New York.
010624-73 (Simcoe Co.) John James MEREDITH, 21, not given, Amaranth, same, s/o Thomas MEREDITH & Mary CARSON to Margery TEGART, 20, West Gwillimbury, Nottawasaga, d/o Alexander TEGART & not given, wtn., John DONALDSON, M. D., Singhampton & Mary J. TEGART, Nottawasaga on May 6, 1872 at Collingwood.

Orangeville Banner: Jan. 24, 1918, p.2:?John James Meredith -The late John James Meredith, whose death occurred in Jamestown, N.Y., a short time ago, was a former Dufferin boy, being one of the sons of the late Thomas Meredith, of Farmington, who used to own the fine property now owned and occupied by J.B. Walker. Mr. Meredith was born on April 25th, 1853, and spent his boyhood around Farmington. When a young man he married Miss Margery Taggart of Singhampton, who, with a family of seven sons and two daughters, survive to mourn the loss of a loving husband and father. Not the whole community, where he has lived so long, has sustained the loss of an upright, honest, God-fearing citizen, whose whole influence was always on the side of right and justice. In the United States, as well as in Canada, Mr. Meredith made farming his occupation, and he made a success of it. In religion he was a consistent Methodist, and his life proved that his profession was not a vain show. In politics, he was a Conservative, although he never hesitated to voice his sentiments on any subject, those quiet, reserved nature, which never craved prominence in public life. Those who knew him best, loved him most and those who had dealings with him always found him to be one of nature's gentlemen, who scorned a mean action, and was always ready to reach out a helping hand to those who were in need. Of all the large Meredith family, there are now left only three, namely, Mrs. William Hamilton, of Laurel; Geo. O. of Jamestown, N.Y., now in Florida and Matthew, of Battleford, Sask. To these as well as to the immediate members of the family, we extend sincerest sympathy. And so time rushes on, making sweeping changes everywhere. Many of Mr. Meredith's old schoolmates and friends will learn with regret of his demise. Long life does not consist in length of years, but in the good accomplished, and Mr. Meredith's case is a verification of the truth of that verse, "Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace." Through his long illness from anemia his cheerfulness was remarkable. On Monday, January 14th, at 2 p.m. he peacefully passed away, without a fear to join his many loved ones awaiting him in the Better Land.?1900 census for Busti, NY shows immigration year was 1884. 1910 census shows John J. Meredith, age 57, born Canada; wife Marie 57 also born Canada; two sons William 20 and Joe 14. Margery shows as a widow in 1920.
