Vancouver Sun, December 2, 1952, page 17, column 3.

 

Susan died in North Vancouver, British Columbia, on February 12, 1968.

 

Vancouver Sun, February 15, 1968, page 50, column 3.

 

James and Susan had a son.

 

Leon Terence Lott

Leon Terence Lott was born in Vancouver on December 5, 1920. He worked as an industrial salesman.

In the early 1950s he married Phyllis Mary Faulkner.

Terence died on January 17, 2012.

 

Vancouver Sun, February 11, 2012, page C8, column 5.

 

Phyllis died in 2015.

 

Mary Warburton

Susan’s sister, Ada Mary Warburton, became well-known in British Columbia in the late 1920s and early 1930s. She was a retired nurse who liked to go for long hikes in remote mountain areas. She was often called “Mary Warburton,” “Miss Warburton,” or “Nurse Warburton.”

Twice she failed to return on time, and rescuers went to look for her. They found her the first time.

On the second occasion, nobody was able to locate her, and the British Columbia court eventually ordered that she was presumed dead.

 

Mary: Early Life and Arrival in Canada

Ada Mary Warburton was born in Manchester, England in 1870. She became a nurse. She never married.

In July 1923, Mary arrived in Canada. She sailed on the Montlaurier, and she landed in Quebec City.

She went to live with James and Susan Lott at 1060 Davie Street in Vancouver. In December 1923, she attempted to go into the United States at Vancouver, Washington, but the American authorities refused to allow her to enter.

Mary: Hiking Adventures

In August 1926, Mary went on a four-day hike over a mountain trail from Hope to Princeton. She did not make it to Princeton, and it appeared that she was lost or injured.

 

Montreal Gazette, September 14, 1926, page 1, column 4.

 

Near the end of September, searchers had lost hope of finding her.

 

Vancouver Province, September 28, 1926, page 9, columns 1-3.

 

However, a group of searchers found her on September 27. She was weak and hungry, but she was otherwise surprisingly well.

 

Vancouver Province, September 30, 1926, page 1, column 8.

 

One of Mary’s rescuers, William Albert “Podunk” Davis, received a medal from the Royal Humane Society of Canada.

 

Victoria Daily Times, March 29, 1927, page 9, column 3.

 

In August 1927, Mary returned to Hope to complete her journey to Princeton. This time she succeeded.

 

Vancouver Province, August 30, 1927, page 3, column 5.

 

Shortly afterward, the newspapers reported that Mary had also hiked from Princeton to Penticton.

 

Vancouver Province, September 18, 1927, page 11, column 3.

 

In 1928, Mary was again hiking in the Hope-Princeton area.

 

Vancouver Province, September 2, 1928, page 7, column 4

 

In September 1931, she was on another long wilderness hiking trip.

 

Vancouver Province, September 30, 1931, page 1, column 9.

 

While she was on this trip, she went missing again.

 

Vancouver Province, November 2, 1931, page 22, column 1.

 

“Missing Hiker Lost,” Vancouver Province, November 13, 1931, page 1, columns 5-6.

 

All attempts to rescue her were unsuccessful.

 

Saskatoon Star-Phoenix, November 27, 1931, page 26, column 3.

 

In 1934, the British Columbia Supreme Court ordered that Mary was presumed dead.

 

Vancouver Sun, March 24, 1934, page 4, column 2.

 

Mary’s estate went to Susan and three brothers.

Leon Terence Lott, death notice; published in Vancouver Sun and/or The Province on Feb. 11, 2012;  “December 5, 1920 – January 17, 2012. Terry’s flair for life meant many adventures; beginning from his father’s shoemaker shop on Denman Street to his travels as an industrial salesman throughout BC. One carefree summer, at Nat Bailey’s Whytecliff restaurant, Terry met Phyllis Faulkner, who became his partner in 61 years of treasured marriage. To everyone he met he brought a joie de vivre that was unforgettable. On January 16th, after a delightful dinner and a good bottle of red, Terry took out his saxophone and played “Won’t you come home Bill Bailey” with his young grandson on piano. That evening, he passed peacefully away in his sleep. Terry leaves Phyllis; his children Murray (Jane) Steven (Janette) and Tracy (Peter); grandchildren Mack, Avery and Keegan; 6 nieces and nephews, their spouses and children and many dear friends. In lieu of flowers, a contribution to St Paul’s Hospital Foundation Cardiac Services would be appreciated.”
