Dates of existence



The Argue family have lived in Belleville, Ontario since 1929. Prior to that date, Cecil Elmer (John) Argue, born April 30, 1885, had been manager of the Standard Bank in Deseronto and served as that town's mayor. He and his wife, Mary Elizabeth West, moved to Belleville after the Standard Bank merged with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. John Argue then became involved in the construction of power plants to supply electricity in both Bancroft and Stirling. John and Elizabeth Argue died in 1974, he on May 4 and she on January 30. They were survived by three sons, John West (Jack), William Armstrong and Alan Edward.
