  • Burial*: 27 May 1932; Woodland Cemetery, Hamilton, Wentworth Co., Ontario; "Son of William Weller and his second wife, Margaret McKechnie; husband of Madeline Marcia Whitehead, father of Olive Ellinor, William Henry, and Marjorie Louise. He enrolled in the Royal Military College of Canada in February of 1880 and graduated fourth in his class with the First Class Certificate in Engineering. An athlete in college and the military, he won many awards, including the first Admiralty Trophy presented by the American Canoe Association in 1884 and, in 1920, was runner-up in the Canadian Senior Golf Championship. He served over 40 years in the military, which is where his career as a canal engineer began. He was Assistant Engineer on the Cornwall Canal enlargement project at Stormont, (which is where all his children were born); and thereafter worked on projects related to the Welland Canals at Niagara, Ontario. His triumph was as Engineer-in-Charge of the construction of the fourth Welland Ship Canal, which was so large and successful, it eclipsed the previous three which are now abandoned. An engineering marvel, the Welland Canal bypasses Niagara Falls and cuts through the Peninsula from Port Weller (named in John's honor), to Port Colborne. Still in use today, it carries about 40 million tons of cargo per year between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, lifting ship nearly 600 feet in a series of seven locks between the two lakes. John L. Weller was named a Life Member of the Engineering Institute of Canada. He died at Hamilton, Ontario less than three months before the Welland Ship Canal was opened. He was survived by his wife and children. In 2007 his great-grandaughter, Madelein Peggy Muntz, published a book about him entitled 'John Laing Weller'.

Yet so it was; and it proves to demonstration that manufactures, under a protective policy, are as likley to prove beneficial here, as in the neighbouring States - Lowell for example. It is to use a well known fact that this Factory gives empoyment to at least thirty-eight thousands pounds of other labour, two-thirds of which is agricultural, namely - 20,000 sheep, worth 10 shillings, 10,000 pounds. Six thousand acres of land, worth 3 pounds an acre, 18,000 pounds. The wages of operatives, agents, & c. &c., will make up at least another ten thousand pounds; and all this benefit is derived from an original capital of 12,000 pounds. The farmers must not imagine that a market for their wool is all the benefit they derive from this factory, - they must remember that almost all wages of the operatives go to them either directly or indirectly for food." from The Cobourg Star, Sep 14, 1847, copied from microfilm at Cobourg Public Library.2

    "Wedding Bells; St. James' church was the scene of a gay gathering this afternoon, the attraction being the marriage of Miss Madeline Whitehead, of this city, to Mr. J. L. Weller, of Brighton. The Rev. mr. McMorine, incumbent of St. James', performed the nuptial ceremony in the presence of a large number of spectators. Miss Rowlands and Miss Macdougall attended the bride as her maids, and Messrs. H. Clark, Peterboro', a graduate of the R. M. C. and now engineer on the Trent Valley canal, and T. W. Chalmers, of Adoplhustown, also a graduate of the r. M. C., who were both fellow-cadets with the groom, sustained him during the proceedings. The bride, who is well known to Kingstonians, looked remarkably well in her travelling costume of brown cashmere embroidered in silk. She received from her many admiring friends numerous tokens of their regard in the shape of gifts of every description, many of which are magnificent and costly. The groom, mr. J. L. Weller, who passed through the R. M. C. with honor, is also well and popularly known, and needs not mention of his many good qualities. He took part in the late North-West rebellion, acting as A. D. C. to Gen. Laurie throughout the campaign, and is now one of the Murray canal civil engineers. Mr. and Mrs. Weller have left for the States where they will spend their honeymoon before returning to take up residence in Brighton. The wish of their Kingston friends is that the spotless page of life's volume which has just been opened will remain unsullied by any care or misfortune and that long life and prosperity may attend them." newspaper cutout on page of scrap book of Madeleing Muntz, granddaughter of Madelein Marcia (Whitehead) Weller, Madelein Muntz Collection, St. Catharines Museum, Oct. 5, 2016, ALV.IV.4, 2006.73.873, Scrapbook.)
