Duncan Campbell McGregor was an insurance agent and real estate broker. He lived at 1914 Robson Street from 1902 to 1906.

He was born in Glenlyon, Scotland, on May 5, 1853 (although some sources say 1854). His parents were Duncan McGregor and Helen Campbell. He came to Canada about 1872.

On December 25, 1877, in Walkerton, Ontario, he married Mary Ann Boulton. She was born in Ontario on November 28, 1847; her parents were James Boulton and Mary Ann Edge.

By 1881, Duncan and Mary were living in Drayton, Ontario. By 1891, they had moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba; they had six children, ranging in age from 1 to 12.

In November 1914, Duncan enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. He gave his birthdate as May 5, 1860, which was seven years after his real birthday. He became a quartermaster for military hospital supplies.

For several years he was a patient in Shaughnessy Military Hospital in Vancouver.

In 1926, the house at Glen-Lyon became the headquarters of the Home of the Friendless, an institution which looked after older people who had nowhere else to go. Laura Belle Shaw Crouch (1877-1937), who was the superintendent of the institution, was originally from Kansas. She had operated a similar facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Mrs. Crouch later moved to Summerland, British Columbia, where she established another institution, also called the Home of the Friendless. The property at Glen-Lynn became the site of a correctional centre for boys and young men.

Duncan died in Vancouver on December 12, 1929. He was buried in the Masonic Cemetery in Burnaby.

In 1939, the provincial government began to use the Glen-Lyon property as a correctional facility for boys and young men.

 

Mary Ann after the divorce

After Mary Ann’s divorce from Duncan, it appears that Mary Ann did not re-marry. In 1920, she went to Twin Falls, Idaho, to visit with her daughter, Nellie.

Margaret after Duncan’s death

After Duncan died, Margaret continued to live in the Vancouver area. Margaret died in Burnaby, British Columbia, on January 6, 1960. She was buried in the Masonic Cemetery in Burnaby.

 

Duncan and Mary Ann had the following children.

 

Helen (“Nellie”) Victoria Campbell Mcgregor

Nellie McGregor was born on December 12, 1879 [or 1881] in Walkerton, Ontario. On September 5, 1899, in Vancouver, she married Harry Foster Allen, who was a merchant. He was born on January 21, 1873, in Kansas City, Missouri (although some sources say that he was born in Oregon). His parents were W.K. and Mary E. Allen. Harry’s brother, Orien V. Allen (about 1868-1921), was the state treasurer of Idaho from 1911 to 1914, until he was convicted of embezzlement.

In 1910, Harry and Nellie were living in Twin Falls, Idaho, where Harry was a merchant.

In 1917, Harry registered with the United States military draft system.

In 1920, Harry and Nellie were living in Twin Falls.

Harry was seriously injured in an automobile crash on June 24, 1921. He died in Twin Falls on June 27, 1921. He was buried in the Twin Falls Cemetery.

In 1922, Nellie applied for a United States passport.

Nellie later married Roy Milton Pidgeon. He was born on April 18, 1885, in New Brunswick. His parents were Edward Alonzo Pidgeon and Amanda J. Haley. Roy was a cousin of the actor, Walter Pidgeon.

Roy worked for the Imperial Oil Company for about 40 years.

Helen died in West Vancouver, British Columbia, on May 18, 1948. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Roy died in Miami, Dade County, Florida in on January 19, 1951.

It appears that Roy was also married to Bess Hilliard Knight. She was born on August 29, 1888, in St. Andrews, New Brunswick. Her parents were Leonard Knight and Sarah M Haddock. She died in Williams Lake, British Columbia, on September 3, 1975.

 

William Charles McGregor

William Charles McGregor was born on January 2, 1881, in Drayton, Ontario. In 1896, he was working as a clerk for Canada Permanent Loan & Savings Company in Vancouver. He later worked as a post office clerk and as a clerk for the wholesale grocery firm of Malkin and Company.

It appears that William did not marry.

He was killed on May 13, 1909, while cleaning a rifle. He apparently did not know that the rifle was loaded. Thomas William Jeffs (1858-1923), the coroner, concluded that the cause of death was “purely accidental,” and that an inquest was not necessary.

Edward Earl McGregor

Edward Earl McGregor was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, on September 7, 1883.

He married Ethel May McAllister on October 14, 1908, in Twin Falls, Idaho. Ethel was born about 1887 in Illinois. Her parents were George S. and Bella L. McCallister.

“D.C. M’Gregor is Dead Here: Was Long Prominent in the business and Social Life of City: Veteran of War,” Vancouver Province, December 13, 1929, page 22: “Pioneer insurance and real estate dealer of the city, Major D.C. McGregor died at Shaughnessy Military Hospital on Thursday night. He had been a resident of Vancouver and vicinity for more than thirty years and was about 70 years old. Major McGregor was known to his many Vancouver friends as “Spottie.” He came to the city from Ontario and started in the real estate and insurance business on Hastings street, occupying an office where the Con Johns billiard parlor is now situated near the corner of Hastings and Carrall. Afterwards he took in as partner Mr. W. Wyllie Johnston of Rossland, the firm being known as McGregor and Johnston. Later it changed to McGregor Johnston & Thomas, still carrying that name for some years after Mr. McGregor retired. A few years previous to the Great War, Major McGregor purchased a farm in Burnaby with the intention of establishing a race course. He was a great lover of horse flesh. The race-course venture did not materialize, and war breaking out, he went to France with the 29th Battalion Major McGregor had been in poor health since the war and for several years was a patient at Shaughnessy Military Hospital. He was a member of the Vancouver Club. Funeral arrangements will be announced later by Center & Hanna.” [includes photograph of Major D.C. McGregor.]

“Death Claims Veteran,” Vancouver Sun, December 14, 1929, page 19: “The funeral of Major D.C. McGregor, 75, who died at the Shaughnessy Military hospital, Thursday nights, will be held Sunday at 3 p.m. from the Center & Hana chapel. Rev. R.[sic] D. McLaren and Major C.C. Owen will officiate. A resident of Vancouver for the past 37 years, Major McGregor opened one of the first insurance offices in the city at Hastings and Richards streets. His home, Glen-Lyon, on Marine drive, Burnaby, was named after his birthplace. He was councillor of Burnaby for four years and served ads reeve for one term in 1913. Major McGregor was original quartermaster of the 72nd Seaforth Highlanders with rank of captain. He went to Valcartier with his battalion, when war was declared, and was appointed quartermaster of the 16th Canadian Scottish. Subsequently he was transferred to the 29th Vancouver Battalion. At the end of 1916, he was invalided home from France and was appointed quartermaster for all military hospitals in B.C. He held this position until 1919, when he retired because of ill health. He was a member of the Vancouver club and the Jericho Country club. He leaves his widow and a son, Douglas Campbell McGregor.”

Allen died this afternoon at 2:45 at La Merced hospital. The end was presaged by a sinking spell which set in about 12 o’clock from which he failed to rally, notwithstanding every effort which medical science could suggest. . . . Harry Foster Allen was born in McMinnville, Oregon, about 47 years ago [NOTE: other sources give his birthplace as Kansas.], residing at various points in the state during the period of his minority. He was interested in the fruit and fruit drying business at a number of places in the northwest for some years, coming to Twin Falls from Boise in the spring of 1905. His first business venture in Twin Falls was made when he bought out the mercantile business of George W. Tarr and C.W. Cartwright which was located on South Main street in the building now occupied by the C.B. Janks butcher shop. The business was known as the Allen Marcantile company. Within a sort time he erected the building at present occupied by the Idaho Department Store and moved his stock to the new location. Eventually, R.C. Beach of Lewiston became interested with Mr. Allen, the name of the store being changed to the Idaho Department Store, of which institution Mr. Allen became manager.”
