James Charles Kavanagh was a financier and former postmaster. He lived at 885 Chilco Street from 1911 to 1913.

He was born in Ontario on March 9, 1850, possibly in Niagara Falls (although some sources say 1848, and give Ottawa as his birthplace).

About 1881, he moved to Manitoba. He became Brandon’s first postmaster in 1881. In 1884, he became an alderman in the Brandon municipal council.

James married Helen Irene Leahy. She was born in Nova Scotia on April 20, 1858 (some sources say 1862).

Like many settlers in western Canada, James received a grant of real property.

In 1885, a Mr. Bell of Brandon complained that James had improperly claimed this land when Mr. Bell had not fulfilled all of the homesteading requirements. Since James was the postmaster in Brandon, it was impossible for him to live on the homestead property for six months in every year for three years. As well, James had not made the proper improvements to the land. It is not clear what happened to this property.

James continued to be the postmaster through the 1880s and 1890s.

In 1898, James was a director of the Northwest Fire Insurance Company.

On December 24, 1900, he was dismissed from the position of postmaster for Kavanagh for allegedly “offensive partisanship.”

About 1902, he moved to Winnipeg and became the proprietor of the Leland Hotel

About 1904, he sold the Leland Hotel to Eli Joel “Mac” Rochon. James was still living in Winnipeg in 1906.

James first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1910. He lived at 885 Chilco Street from 1910 to 1913. In 1915, he was at the Grosvenor Hotel at 840 Howe Street.

James and Nellie travelled frequently to California, especially during the winter months. Their daughter, Mary, was married to Percival Thompson, who was from a wealthy Chicago family. Percival and Mary built a large house in Coronado, California, just down the beach from the Hotel del Coronado.

By 1915, James and Nellie were settled in California. For a time, Nellie’s address was the Bryson Apartments, which was then a new building on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles.

In 1916, James appeared in the Los Angeles City Directory, along with his daughters, Doreen and Kathleen. They were living at 337 South Serrano Avenue.

It appears that James died in Los Angeles County, California, on November 13, 1922.

Nellie continued to live in California. She died in San Diego on November 27, 1944.

 

James and Nellie had the following children.

 

Mary Adelaide Alberta Kavanagh (daughter of James Charles Kavanagh)

His father was William Hale Thompson, Senior, who was a wealthy real estate investor and member of the Illinois state legislature. His mother was Medora Gale, whose father, Stephen Francis Gale (1812-1905), was one of the original incorporators of the town of Chicago. Percival’s brother, William “Big Bill” Hale Thompson (1869-1944), was the notorious mayor of Chicago from 1915 to 1923 and from 1927 to 1931.

Memorable Manitobans: James C. Kavanagh (1850-1923), http://www.mhs.mb.ca/docs/people/kavanagh_jc.shtml: “Born in Ontario on 9 March 1850, he was appointed Brandon’s first postmaster in August 1881. He was dismissed from the position in December 1900 for allegedly “offensive partisanship”, apparently with the approval of Clifford Sifton. He moved to Winnipeg in mid-1902, purchased the Leland Hotel from W. D. Douglas, and operated it until 1904 when he sold the business to E. J. Rochon.”

Daily Nor’Wester, February 12, 1898, page 6, “The fourteenth annual meeting of the Shareholders of the Northwest Fire Insurance Company was held on Thursday the 10th ins., at the head office of the Company, No. 371 Main street, when the following directors were elected: . . . J.C. Kavanagh, Brandon . . .”

Brandon’s Politics and Politicians by W. Leland Clark, Published by the Brandon Sun, 1981, page 16, http://www.mhs.mb.ca/docs/books/brandonpolitics.pdf: “Local Liberals naturally expected that all Tory officeholders would be immediately replaced by Liberals after Laurier’s victory in 1896 and some became extremely agitated when this did not occur. The fact that a Conservative blacksmith was still receiving some of the Experimental Farm business caused “a lot of ( Brandon) Liberals”6 to declare that they would vote against Sifton in the next election. While Sifton never agreed with his more rabid supporters in their contention that all Tories should automatically be dismissed, he did concur in specific instances as in the 1901 dismissal of Brandon postmaster Joseph [sic] Kavanagh for allegedly ” offensive partisanship.”‘

“Why Mr. Kavanagh Was Dismissed,” Daily Sun, February 19, 1901, page 1: Mr. N. Boyd was informed that Jas. Kavanagh had been removed from the position of postmaster of Brandon for active political partisanship. Mr. Kavanagh had held office since August 1881. His successor, Kenneth Campbell, was appointed on December 24 last.”

Mackerels in the Moonlight: Four Corrupt American Mayors, by Gerald Leinwand, Jefferson, North Carolina, McFarland, 2004; pages 11-12. “While on leave in January 1864, Commander Thompson married Medora Gale of one of the first families in Chicago. Her father, Stephen, had been one of the thirty-eight incorporators of the town of Chicago. The couple’s first child, Helen, was born in 1866 and on May 14, 1867, William Hale Thompson, Jr., was born. There were two more male additions to the family, Gale in 1871 and Percival in 1876.”

The Man who Got Away: The Bugs Moran Story : a Biography, by Rose Keefe; Nashville, Tennessee, Cumberland House Publishing, 2005, page 41: “William Hale Thompson Sr. invested in Chicago real estate and became wealthy beyond anticipation when the Great Fire of 1871 spared the block he owned on West Madison Street. Being one of the few landlords with property available for rent once the flames had been quenched and the smoke had dissipated, he made massive profits and invested wisely. At the time of his death in 1891, he left an estate valued at $2 million.”

Chicago: A Biography, by Dominic A. Pacyga; Chicago, University of Chicago Press, 2009, page 179: “Born in Boston in 1867 to a well-established New England father and the daughter of one of the original incorporators of Chicago, he moved with his family to the city in 1868. His father, William Hale Thompson, Sr., dealt in real estate and became a Republican member of the Illinois state legislature and was known for passing the first state law to prevent cruelty to animals and for helping to establish a state militia.”
