Biographical history

The McLandress family originated in New Brunswick. James McLandress came to Iona in 1845 and died there c.1886. His son William A. (b.1850) became a well-known stock merchant. William's sons were James A. (b.1874) and possibly J.H. (Herschel). By 1896, William McLandress was shipping cattle, sheep, hogs and grain on the Michigan Central Railroad at Dutton. He also dealt in coal, books, blankets, wood and wool. His company banked at the Merchants Bank of Canada, possibly West Lorne Branch. In 1907, William was still shipping grain from Dutton while his son James had a grain warehouse at West Lorne. About 1930, the business was taken over by J. H. McLandress. It is last mentioned in 1946.
