  • Notes 
    • The following is an excerpt from "Romantic Kent" by Victor Lauriston 1952. p179-180:

      "Another son, the eloquent Frederick Stone, became on of Chatham's foremost lawyers, served in the city council, un-successuflly contested the West Kent legislative seat in 1908, and spend his last days as judge at Sault Ste. Marie."

      Member of the "Macaulay Club".

      From "Romantic Kent" p532-534: "The Macaulay club, destined to become widely known as the oldest independent debating club in Canada, was formed in 1833." "To the fiftieth banquet, the golden jubilee in February, 1932, came messages from distant parts of Canada; and members from distant points -- Harry W. Anderson of the 'Globe', a past president; Judge Fred Stone of Sault Ste. Marie, and others.  And guest of honor at the fiftieth banquet as the first, was Dr. Thomas O'Hagan, a distinguished figure in Canadian literature.

      Ran for Mayor of Chatham in 1897.

      From "Romantic Kent" p624:

      "For Mayor of Chatham in 1897, Fred Stone, a leading lawyer and experienced municipal man, was opposed by the veteran Henry Smyth.  Both the city papers supported Stone; but Smyth won, the first man to achieve a fifth mayoralty term."

      Chatham Daily News, by Victor Lauriston: "Fred Stone, his eldest son, studied law with E. W. Scane and later entered the Scane, Houston, and Scane partnership."

      Bradfield notes: "Lawyer in Chatham in partnership with William Gundy, K.C. - 1911 - moved to SAult Ste. marie when he became the senior Judge of Algoma"

      Darcy McKeough notes:

      "See History of Highbanks. From c 1907 lived at 142 Victoria Ave."

      "Joined the 24th Kent Regiment in 1901 and was appointed O.C. 30 Nov 1908."

      "Their offices were in a low level brick block on King, just west of William, later replaced with a more modern but not much taller structure.  Fred Stone later headed the Stone, Gundy and Brackin law partnership.  He was a Macaulay when, a young student, I joined that famous club.  Clean-cut and impressively handsome, he was a fluent and pleasing speaker.  Fred Stone served as town councillor in the 90's and challenged Henry Smyth for the mayoralty in 1897, Fred was the better man but Henry was the slicker politician.  In 1905 when Archie McCoig left the legislature to challenge Herb Clements for the federal West Kent seat, the Tories put up George W. Sulman and the Grits nominated Fred Stone.  Fred's final speech of the campaign at the Grand Opera House, was a masterpiece of sound argument and appealing elequence.  Where a lot of people expected Fred Stone to win, Sulman's Majority ran into the hundreds.  Later,  Fred was named Judge of Sault Ste. Marie - an area where more than one Chatham man hadheld judicial office." [7, 8]
