Daniel Drysdale, 1917, “United States Passport Applications, 1795-1925,” FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVJP-9G7L).

Daniel Drysdale was a salmon canner. He lived at 1847 Barclay Street in 1915 and 1916.

Daniel Drysdale was born in Nova Scotia, probably in Colchester County, on January 17, 1856. His father was George Drysdale (1821-1870). His mother was Margaret Shearer (1820-1915). (Daniel’s brother, Gordon Drysdale (1859-1932), became a well-known dry goods retailer in Vancouver.)

In 1879, Daniel travelled by rail from Nova Scotia to the United States. For much of the time from 1879 to 1917 he lived in Washington State and in San Francisco, California.

By the late 1880s, Daniel was married to Margaret Chisholm. She was born in Nova Scotia on May 14, 1865. She began living in the United States in 1891.

On June 9, 1892, Daniel became a naturalized United States citizen.

In 1900 he was living in San Mateo County, California.

By 1908, the San Francisco newspapers reported that the Drysdales were planning to move to Vancouver.

San Francisco Call, Volume 103, Number 96, March 5, 1908, page 8; http://cdnc.ucr.edu/cgi-bin/cdnc?a=d&d=SFC19080305.2.67.11.

Daniel may not have moved to Vancouver, after all. In 1910 he was in Seattle, Washington.

In June 1912, the Drysdales had been travelling in the southern United States. They sailed to Europe, where they were to spend the spring and summer.

Daniel first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1913.

He lived at the following addresses

1913 to 1914 number 2, 1243 Thurlow Street (Hampton Court)
1915 and 1916 1847 Barclay Street

In 1913 he was the president of English Fisheries Limited.

In 1914 he was the president of Draney Fisheries Limited.

Henderson’s Greater Vancouver City Directory, 1914, Part 1, page 791

Henderson’s Greater Vancouver City Directory, 1914, Part 1, page 791

For a time he was the vice-president of Alaska Packers Association.

In 1917, Daniel and Margaret applied for United States passports. They were planning to travel from Seattle, Washington, to Hong Kong, Japan, Vladivostock and Petrograd, so that Daniel could investigate the salmon canning industry in Russia. They stated that their permanent residence was in San Francisco.

Because of the Russian political situation in 1917, they decided not to go. While they were on their way back to San Francisco, someone stole one of their travelling bags (which held their passports and other papers). They never recovered the bag or the passports.

In 1919, Daniel and Margaret applied for new passports. They were travelling to Mexico to investigate the fisheries business in Lower California and the Gulf of California.

In 1920, Daniel and Margaret were living in San Francisco.

It appears that Margaret died in San Francisco on March 23, 1928.

In 1930, Daniel was widowed; he was living in a boarding house in Alameda, California.

It appears that Daniel died in Los Angeles, California, on October 23, 1939.

Daniel and Margaret had a son.

 

Arthur Chisholm Drysdale

Arthur Chisholm Drysdale was born in New Westminster, British Columbia about 1888.

In 1900 and 1910 he was living with his parents.

He studied at University of California, Berkeley for a time.

In 1912, Arthur and his parents travelled in the southern United States. Arthur later went to San Francisco, where he was to study music instead of continuing with his studies at Berkeley. He also went to Vancouver for a time.

In October 1913 Arthur travelled from Vancouver to California. He died at Adler’s Sanitorium in San Francisco on November 21, 1913.

It appears that Arthur was buried in Cypress Lawn Memorial Cemetery in San Francisco.

Alaska Packers Association, Port of Bellingham; https://www.portofbellingham.com/311/Alaska-Packers-Association: “Whatcom County’s first cannery was opened in August of 1882 by James Tarte and John Martin in Semiahmoo. In 1891, Daniel Drysdale built a small cannery at the end of Semiahmoo Spit that packed 7,369 cases of sockeye and 1,457 cases of Coho salmon in its first year. However, the ever-increasing number of canners made the 1890s a period of intense competition, and as a result, canneries began merging to better handle increased competition. . . . In February of 1893, 25 of 33 Alaska canneries banded together as the Alaska Packers Association, which bought out the Drysdale Cannery on Semiahmoo Spit and the Wedhams Cannery at Point Roberts.”
