The wedding was at the home of William Thomas Franklin (1868-1955) and his wife, Mary Ann Clachar (1865-1941). Will Franklin was the lighthouse keeper on Merry Island from about 1904 to 1932.

Maggie was born in England on March 5, 1875. (Some sources say she was born in Bristol, but most others agree that she was born in Paulton, Somerset.) Her parents were Henry Sherborne (1840-1918) and Eulalia Susan Sherborne (1838-1889).

Vancouver Daily World, September 1, 1906, page 12, column 7.

His relationship with the railway company ended about 1915. From then on, the Vancouver directories show that he had a series of short employments with various businesses.

1919 accountant with Canadian Export and Import Company
1921 secretary-treasurer of Handy Bay Cold Storage and Fish Company
1922 accountant with Rand Tyre Company
1923 accountant with Willis Piano Company
1924 and 1925 Accountant, though not with a specific company
1926 cabinet maker with “R Manufacturing Company”
1927 general accountant

It appears that James and Maggie lived apart for various periods in the 1930s. In 1940, James stayed for a time at the Alcazar Hotel on Dunsmuir Street in Vancouver.

James died in Kaslo, British Columbia on July 9, 1940. He was buried in Nelson Memorial Park in Nelson, British Columbia.

Maggie died in Essondale, British Columbia, on April 22, 1954. She was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Howard Irving Jeffrey

Howard Irving Jeffrey was born in British Columbia in July 1910. (The 1911 Canada census gives his name as William, but this appears to be an anomaly.)

He worked as a clerk for the Imperial Bank of Canada.

On June 4, 1949, in Victoria, British Columbia, he married Orleane Roberta Paterson. She was born in Victoria on November 9, 1921. Her parents were Robert Alexander Paterson (1892-1954) and Marguerite Taylor.
