  • Notes 
    • worked for Singer Sewing Machine Co. at Clydebank in the early 1900's, and came to Canada in 1908 after his marriage to Caroline. They settled in Calgary, with James first working for the Canadian Pacific Railway (or perhaps Northern Electric), then for Canadian General Electric for 22 years as a shipper receiver until retirement in August 1947. Following retirement, he and Caroline moved to Nelson.

      He reached 50 years as a masonic member in 1957 and was a life member of St. John's Masonic Lodge in Delmuir, Scotland. He was also a charter member of Granite Lodge #154 in Nelson. As a member of Nelson City Band, James played the clarinet. While he lived in Scotland, he played with the Glasgow Highlanders band, and in Calgary, played with several bands, including Shaine, Elks, and the Calgary Regiment [10]
