Creelman, Angus Mcgillivary (1859-1929)

Angus Mcgillivary Creelman was a railway construction contractor. He lived at 1859 Pendrell Street from 1910 to 1912.

Family Beginnings

Angus Mcgillivary Creelman was born in Upper Stewiacke, Colchester County, Nova Scotia, on March 19, 1859. His father was Robert Creelman (1816-1905), who was a farmer. Angus’s mother was Susannah Archibald (1818-1903). (Angus was sometimes known as Angus M. Creelman, Angus G. Creelman, Angus M. G. Creelman, Angus Mcg. Creelman, A. G. Creelman, or A. M. Creelman.)

By 1898, Angus was living in Rossland, British Columbia. He was in a contracting business with George Beam.

On October 12, 1898, in Spokane, Washington, Angus married Caroline Eliza “Carrie” Verge. Carrie was born in Nova Scotia on January 13, 1864. Her father was Levi Houghton Verge (1833-1902) who was a shoemaker. Carrie’s mother was Caroline (“Carrie”) M. Murray (1844-1921). The Verge family lived in Nova Scotia until about 1882, when they moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Angus and Carrie lived in Rossland until about 1904.

Carrie died in Vancouver on November 8, 1914. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

On June 28, 1916, in Seattle, Washington, Angus married Lenora A. Henderson (sometimes called Lenora Henderson Hodgson). She was born in the United States on December 12, 1883. It appears that her father was George Hodgson.

Angus died in Vancouver on August 23, 1929. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Angus’s will left the house at 1675 Laurier Avenue to Lenora, and the rest of the estate in equal shares to Lenora and Angus’s two daughters.

Angus and Carrie had the following children.

 

Robert Verge Creelman

Robert Verge Creelman was born in British Columbia (possibly in Rossland) on August 28, 1899.

He worked as a timekeeper for Angus’s construction business. On December 18, 1918, Robert was working on a construction site at Ladner Creek, east of Hope, British Columbia. After a rockslide critically injured him, he was taken to the hospital in Vancouver, where he died on December 20.

Victoria Daily Colonist, December 21, 1918, page 2; http://archive.org/stream/dailycolonist61y8uvic#page/n1/mode/1up/search/robert+creelman.

Robert was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

 

Carolyne Eleanor Creelman

Carolyne Eleanor Creelman was born on October 24, 1900, in Rossland, British Columbia. She was often called “Eleanor.”

She married Alexander Ree, who was a steam fitter. He was born in Airdrie, Scotland, on April 12, 1895. His parents were James Ree (1862-1944) and Jessie Gibb (1863-1951). (Somewhat unusually, it appears that there were two marriage ceremonies for Alexander and Eleanor. One was in Vancouver on August 14, 1920; the second was in Timmins, Ontario, on August 29, 1922.)

Alexander later worked as an insurance broker. He died in Vancouver on April 9, 1961. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Eleanor died in North Vancouver, British Columbia, on June 21, 1971. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

One of Alexander’s and Eleanor’s children was Angus Creelman Ree (1929-2009), who was a lawyer and member of the British Columbia legislature. He was the solicitor-general of British Columbia in 1988 and 1989.

 

Florence Mary Leigh Creelman

Florence Mary Leigh Creelman was born in April 1904 in British Columbia (possibly in Rossland).

In 1927, she married Henricus Johannes Stander (sometimes called “Henry John Stander). He was born in Georgetown, Cape Colony, South Africa on June 21, 1894. Although he initially studied chemistry, he later went to Yale Medical School and became a well-known medical gynecologist and obstetrician.

Both Henricus and Florence became naturalized United States citizens.

Henricus died in Scarsdale, New York on May 2, 1948.

Florence died on May 27, 1998, in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Angus McGillvrey Creelman, b. 19 March 1859, d. 23 August 1929; http://skmacnutt.ca/keith/genealogy/tmg/p659.htm; Father: Robert Creelman Esq., b. 12 Jan 1816, d. 17 Aug 1905; Mother: Susannah Archibald, b. 11 Sep 1818, d. 7 Feb 1903. . . . “Angus worked on bridge and tunnel construction, engineering projects used by the CP Railroad. Many of these jobs were done a number of years before forming his own company, “AG Creelman & Company.” He had offices between Vancouver, BC and St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. Construction examples: Mewata Armoury in Calgary and locks at Port Colborne end of Welland Canal in Ontario, Canada. He died before the locks were finished. Harold Houghton Verge completed the job.”

Official Report of Debates of the Legislative Assembly (Hansard); Wednesday, June 5, 1985, Afternoon Sitting; Coquihalla Highway Construction Acceleration Act (Bill 2). Second reading; https://www.leg.bc.ca/content/hansard/33rd3rd/33p_03s_850605p.htm:

“Mr. Ree: It was scary but it was beautiful, beautiful country. To have it opened up at this time…. In fact I got [ Page 6453 ] off at McCulloch Junction. McCulloch Junction, Mr. Speaker, was about 20-odd miles out of Kelowna, and you had to go by an old dirt road. There was a bus system to get you in and out of Kelowna at the time, and you got off the railway at about 11 o’clock at night, actually, and you went down this highway to get back on. I had a chance to see this highway again in the daylight, and I was glad I’d first come down in the darkness, because it was very frightening. But it’s wild country; it is hard country; it is beautiful country up in that area.

Mr. Speaker, one of the main reasons I wanted to speak on this bill or speak at this time is my family background dealing with the Coquihalla. I had the opportunity when I was with Trans Mountain Pipe Line to travel it a number of times. Trans Mountain and Prettys’ Timber had purchased the right-of-way from the CPR up the Coquihalla, and as I say I had the opportunity to travel through there up the old right-of-way through some of the tunnels and through some of the snowsheds along the right-of-way of the pipeline. It is, as I say, rough country. In certain valleys you could see the old boxcars still at the bottom of the valley where they had fallen off the railway. There are old trestles up there, and I understand the CPR — or not the CPR, the engineers out of Chilliwack — used to go up there on training exercises blowing some of these trestles down.

But, Mr. Speaker, as I say, I have family background on the Coquihalla. My grandfather, Angus Creelman, of Creelman Construction, was one of the prime contractors back in the beginning of the century in the building of the Coquihalla railway. I’d like that to be in the record, Mr. Speaker. I also had an uncle, Robert Verge Creelman, who was killed in a rockslide in the building of the Coquihalla on December 20, 1918 — a 19-year-old youth at that time. So it has been close to the family — the centre — and I’m most pleased to see its development, to see it as an access not only for industry but for tourism for this province. I’m sure it will add to that, and the costs in the long run will be minimal compared to the benefits received.”

Medical Center Archives of New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, 1300 York Avenue # 34. New York, NY 10065; Finding Aid To The Henricus Stander, Md (1894-1948) Papers. http://weill.cornell.edu/archives/pdf/personal_aids/Stander.pdf:

“Henricus Johannes Stander was born in Georgetown, Cape Colony, South Africa on June 21, 1894, of a Dutch father and a French Huguenot mother. Both parents had emigrated to South Africa to escape religious persecution in their respective homelands. Dr. Stander was raised on the family farm along with his two brothers and a sister. He received his early education in the South African Public School system. After attending South African College in Capetown from 1911-1913 where he studied chemistry, he emigrated to the United States. From 1913-1914 he was employed as an instructor at Harvard University while continuing his studies in chemistry at that institution. Following this year at Harvard, he entered the University of Arizona where he earned his Master of Science Degree in 1916. His expertise in the field of colloidal chemistry led to immediate employment, and the year following his graduation he became a consulting chemist to the Hercules Powder Company of Wilmington, Delaware. His position required frequent trips throughout the United States and Mexico and a visit back to his South African homeland. In spite of this promising beginning, he was not satisfied with a career in industrial chemistry. To satisfy his long-standing ambition to study medicine, he entered Yale Medical School. In 1921 he received his medical degree from Yale, graduating at the top of his class.

. . .

On a more personal note, Dr. Stander was devoted to his family. He had met Mrs. Stander in 1927, while on leave from Johns Hopkins for a period of clinical study in Montreal, Canada. He married the former Florence Mary Leigh Creelman, a registered nurse and native of Canada that same year. Their union produced four children, two boys and two girls. In spite of his many professional commitments, he kept abreast of his children’s activities and interests and involved himself in many aspects of their lives. He personally supervised the building of his home in Scarsdale where the family lived for many years. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. His love of poker and enjoyment of nature was known to his colleagues and friends. His property in Belgrade Lakes, Maine was reputed to be a place where one could enjoy the pursuits of these activities in an atmosphere of relaxation.

He died of a heart attack in the family home at 65 Brite Avenue Scarsdale on May 2, 1948.”
