Jonathan McCully
Birth: Jul. 25, 1809
Nova Scotia, Canada
Death: Jan. 2, 1877, Canada

Canadian Statesman. He was admitted to the bar in 1837 and he served on the legislative council from 1848 to 1867. He was probate judge from 1853 to 1857 and railway commissioner from 1854 to 1857. He was a liberal who expressed his views in the Halifax Morningstar and the Halifax Union newspaper. His editorials helped promote union to the Nova Scotians, and the confederation was accepted in 1866. The Representatives from the provinces met with the British government to establish the British North America Act. This Act passed in 1867 and it created the dominion of Canada. For his efforts, he was appointed to the Canadian Senate in 1867. He resigned his senate position in 1870 to become the puisne judge of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court.  (bio by: Tom Denardo)
