Alexander Henderson was a jeweller who lived at 1040 Denman Street in 1905.

 

Early Life

Alexander Henderson was born in Stirling, Stirlingshire, Scotland on January 10, 1865. His parents were Gilbert Henderson and Isabella Grant.

 

To Canada

Alexander immigrated to Canada about 1889.

 

Marriage to Jessie Banning

On October 1, 1890, in Arnprior, Ontario, Alexander married Jessie Orpha Banning. (Her middle name was sometimes spelled “Orpah.”)

 

Jessie was born in Arnprior on April 11, 1867. Her parents were William Benjamin Banning (1847-1910) and Margaret Waite (1847-1934).

Alexander and Jessie stayed in Ontario throughout the 1890s. In 1895, Alexander’s watchmaker shop was at the corner of John Street and Rock Lane in Arnprior.

In 1897, burglars broke into Alexander’s store in Arnprior and stole watches and other jewellery.

Alexander and Jessie were still in Ontario when their daughter, Margaret, was born in 1899.

 

To British Columbia

By 1900 Alexander had moved to Phoenix, British Columbia, a booming town that relied on the local copper mines for its success.

 

 

Alexander’s store was on Dominion Avenue in Phoenix.

On the evening of January 17, 1901, a fire started in McBean and Company’s dry goods store in Phoenix. The citizens used blasting powder to demolish nearby buildings, preventing the fire from spreading throughout the community.

Alexander’s jewellery store was one of the blown-up buildings.

After the fire, Alexander set up a temporary site at the local post office to receive watch and jewellery repair items.

By March 1901, Alexander had a new location for his business, next to the P. Burns market, across from the Brooklyn Hotel.

Alexander moved to Vancouver in late November 1901.

(Augustus Alexander Davidson lived at 2030 Beach Avenue from 1906 to 1925.Further information on this family appears on the page for Davidson, Augustus Alexander (1862-1950); https://westendvancouver.wordpress.com/biographies-a-m/biographies-d/davidson-augustus-alexander-1862-1950/.)

 

Alexander and Jessie moved frequently while they were in Vancouver. Alexander appeared at the following Vancouver addresses.

1902 729 Richards Street
1903 334 Robson Street
1904 1787 Burnaby Street
1905 1040 Denman Street
1906 1115 Pendrell Street
1907 626 Homer Street
1908 834 Seymour Street

 

In June 1907, Alexander moved to a temporary location at 401 Columbia Avenue.

 

Vancouver Daily World, June 27, 1907, page 15, column 3.

 

In the fall of 1907, Alexander published a notice of his intention to purchase land in the Coast Land District of British Columbia. It appears that he did not proceed to buy the land.

 

Vancouver Daily World, September 20, 1907, page 9, column 4.

 

 

Jessie’s Return to Ontario

By 1908, Jessie was living in Ottawa. The directories listed her as a “widow,” although she was still married to Alexander.

In 1911, Jessie and her children were living at 507 Bay Street in Ottawa, Ontario. Jessie was a boarding house operator.

Jessie died in Ottawa on October 21, 1917. (The death notice said that she was the relict (widow) of “the late Alex. Henderson.”) She was buried in the Albert Street Cemetery in Arnprior.

 

Ottawa Citizen, October 23, 1917, page 4, column 7.

 

Alexander’s Later Life

Although Alexander’s wife, Jessie, described herself as a widow, Alexander was still alive.

On February 1, 1909, Alexander moved to the United States. It appears that none of his family went with him.

By 1910, Alexander was operating a jewellery business in Los Angeles, calling himself “Alexander H. Grant.” (He was using his mother’s surname as his own.)

 

Los Angeles City Directory, 1910, page 586, column 2.

 

In 1911, he became bankrupt.

 

Los Angeles Times, June 13, 1911, page 6, column 3.

 

He later went to San Luis Obispo, California, where he was a clerk with Lewis Merton McManus’s jewelry firm.

In 1912, federal agents arrested Alexander to face criminal charges relating to his bankruptcy. A series of newspaper articles described the progress of the case.

The outcome of the court case is not available.

In March 1917, the Los Angeles Times published a notice, saying that Alexander’s father had died, leaving Alexander a large portion of the estate.

 

Los Angeles Times, March 13, 1917, page 15, column 4.

 

 

Marriage to Ada Adelseck

On May 27, 1917, in San Rafael, California, Alexander married to Ada Isabella Adelseck, who was the widow of Fred Adelseck. Ada was born Ada Isabella Finch in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin on May 22, 1867.

In 1918, Alexander was living in Oakland, California. He filed a petition to become a naturalized citizen of the United States. Although he signed the application as Alexander Henderson Grant, he stated that he was also known as Alexander Henderson.

 

“California County Naturalizations, 1831-1985,” database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QGG3-P3NW : 17 March 2018), Alexander Henderson Or Alexander Grant Or Henderson, 1918; citing Naturalization, Alameda, Alameda, California, United States, Alameda County Superior Court of California, Oakland.

 

In 1938, Ada petitioned to become a naturalized United States citizen (probably because Ada automatically became a British citizen when she married Alexander in 1917).

At the time of the 1940 United States census, Alexander was living in Oakland, California. The census record did not include Ada in Alexander’s household. The 1940 census record for Ada listed her with her son, Edward Adelseck in Los Angeles.

Alexander died in Oakland on August 27, 1945. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland.
