THIS BEER BOTTLE WAS FOUND BY DAVE READ, A CONTRACTOR DOING RENOVATIONS IN THE PERSONAL RESIDENCE OF DAVID COCKS AND KARLA MATHER-COCKS ON/ABOUT DECEMBER 8, 2012. READ FELT THE BOTTLE INSIDE THE CAVITY OF THE EXTERIOR WALL, WHERE IT HAD BEEN RESTING HIDDEN BEHIND THE HOME’S ORGINAL LATHE AND PLASTER WALLS. CITY ASSESSMENT RECORDS DATE THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE PROPERTY TO BETWEEN 1907 AND 1910. ‘ALBERTA’S PRIDE’ BEER WAS ONE OF FRITZ SICK'S EARLIEST BEER VARIETIES AND WAS POSSIBLY BREWED THROUGH THE 1920S. IT WAS ADVERTISED AS “THE BEER WITHOUT A PEER”. FRITZ SICK FOUNDED THE LETHBRIDGE BREWERY IN 1901 AND FORMED THE ASSOCIATED BREWERIES OF CANADA IN 1928 WITH HIS SON EMIL (WHICH BECAME SICK’S BREWERIES LTD IN 1944). SICK WAS BORN IN GERMANY IN 1859, AND EMIGRATED WITH HIS WIFE AND YOUNG SON TO NORTH AMERICA IN 1883. PRIOR TO SETTLING IN LETHBRIDGE, SICK TRAINED IN BREWING FUNDAMENTALS IN CINCINNATI, WORKED IN BREWERIES IN SAN FRANCISCO, TACOMA, AND SPOKANE, AND ESTABLISHED BOTH THE TRAIL BREWING CO. AND FORT STEELE BREWING CO. IN BRITISH COLUMBIA. SICK’S BREWERY IN LETHBRIDGE BECAME FAMOUS FOR ITS OLD STYLE PILSNER, WHICH IS STILL PRODUCED TODAY BY MOLSON’S BREWING CO, FOLLOWING MOLSON’S PURCHASE OF SICK’S BREWERY IN 1959.

BELONGED TO MRS. PERCY MURDOCH, AND PREVIOUSLY TO MRS. WILLIAM HENDERSON. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON DEVELOPED THE FOLLOWING BRIEF HISTORY OF THE HENDERSON FAMILY WITH INFORMATION FROM THE BOOK ‘PIONEER PEMMICAN CLUB ROUND-UP, 1885 – 1985’ BY A.P. BAINES, AND THE GALT ARCHIVES. WILLIAM HENDERSON CAME TO CANADA FROM EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND IN 1879, WHEN HE WAS 22. A CARPENTER BY TRADE, HENDERSON MADE HIS WAY WESTWARD, BUILDING THE FIRST HOUSE IN MEDICINE HAT IN 1881, THE BARRACKS OF THE NORTH-WEST MOUNTED POLICE AND THE HUDSON BAY COMPANY STORE IN FORT MACLEOD, AND ENDING UP IN LETHBRIDGE IN 1885 WHERE HE WORKED FOR THE NORTH WEST COAL & NAVIGATION COMPANY. HE WORKED ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF LETHBRIDGE’S FIRST SCHOOL, THE COMPANY HOSPITAL AND COTTAGES, AND LETHBRIDGE HOUSE (LATER KNOWN AS THE LETHBRIDGE HOTEL), WHERE HE REMAINED AS PROPRIETOR. IN 1887 HE MARRIED MARGARET THOMPSON LUNDY, A SCOTTISH WOMAN WHO HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN WIDOWED IN DUNMORE, NWT. THE CEREMONY TOOK PLACE AT THE HOME OF WILLIAM STAFFORD AND WAS PERFORMED BY REVEREND CHARLES MCKILLOP. HENDERSON WAS VERY ACTIVE IN THE GROWING COMMUNITY OF LETHBRIDGE – HE WAS A MEMBER OF THE FIRST TOWN COUNCIL, THE MASONS AND ODDFELLOWS, A FOUNDER OF THE PEMMICAN CLUB, AND MEMBER OF KNOX PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. IN 1897 HE BUILT A BRICK DUPLEX AT THE CORNER OF 7 AVE AND 5 ST SOUTH AND THOUGH THE STRUCTURE HAS UNDERGONE RENOVATIONS, IT STILL STANDS IN 2014. WILLIAM AND MARGARET HAD SIX CHILDREN – HAROLD, ETTA, EDNA, WILLIAM, ADELINE AND FRED. ALL SIX RECEIVED THEIR EARLY EDUCATION IN LETHBRIDGE, BUT WERE LATER SENT TO BOARDING SCHOOLS – THE BOYS TO UPPER CANADA COLLEGE IN TORONTO, THE GIRLS TO HAVERGAL COLLEGE IN WINNIPEG. IN 1908 HENDERSON SR. WAS ELECTED MAYOR OF LETHBRIDGE, BUT DIED OF PNEUMONIA IN DECEMBER 1909 WHILE STILL IN OFFICE. HIS THREE SONS ALL SERVED IN WORLD WAR I, AND HAROLD WAS KILLED IN ACTION IN 1917. THE REMAINING SONS AND DAUGHTERS WERE ALL MARRIED AND RAISED FAMILIES. ETTA MARRIED LOCAL FARMER ALBERT ELI IVES, AND HAD THREE CHILDREN, MARGARET, KATHARINE, AND THADDEUS. ADELINE MARRIED JACK KANE AND LIVED IN BARONS. EDNA OBTAINED HER NURSING DEGREE AT QUEEN’S UNIVERSITY, MARRIED DR. ATKINSON, AND SETTLED IN MASSACHUSETTS. MARGARET HENDERSON SR. LIVED IN THE FAMILY HOME BUILT BY HER HUSBAND FOR NEARLY 30 YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH, AND WAS ACTIVE IN THE PEMMICAN CLUB AND I.O.D.E. UNTIL HER DEATH IN 1933. SEE PERMANENT FILE P20140012002 FOR THE OBITUARIES OF WILLIAM AND MARGARET HENDERSON, AND HENDERSON FAMILY HISTORY EXCERPT FROM BAINES’ BOOK. *UPDATE* IN 2017 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT RUTHANN LABLANCE CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF CLOTHING, INCLUDING A SCARF, PETTICOAT, AND BLOUSE DONATED BY JEAN WESTFALL. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION WAS COMPILED USING ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. JEAN WESTFALL WAS BORN ANNA JEAN MURDOCH ON AUGUST 31, 1927, THE DAUGHTER OF PERCY MURDOCH AND ANNA MURDOCH (NEE SMITH). ACCORDING TO HER OBITUARY, JEAN “WAS A DESCENDANT OF SOUTHERN ALBERTA PIONEERS. THE SMITHS AND LAYNES, HER MOTHER’S FAMILY, WERE AMONG THE FIRST TO SETTLE CARDSTON AND RAYMOND. ON HER FATHER’S SIDE, THE MURDOCH FAMILY HOMESTEADED NEAR MILK RIVER EARLY IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY AND LATER FARMED IN WARNER AND WILSON SIDING BEFORE MOVING TO LETHBRIDGE. … IN 1947 SHE MOVED TO VALLEJO, CA … [WHERE] SHE MET TOM WESTFALL. THEY WERE MARRIED IN LETHBRIDGE IN 1948 … TOM PASSED AWAY IN 1986 AND IN 1987 JEAN RETURNED TO LETHBRIDGE … AMONG THOSE RENEWED LCI CONNECTIONS WAS CALE HARRIS, A FAMILY FRIEND SINCE CHILDHOOD AND A SOMETIME BEAU IN THEIR TEEN YEARS. NOT LONG AFTER JEAN RETURNED TO LETHBRIDGE, SHE AND CALE BECAME AN ‘ITEM’. AND SHORTLY THEREAFTER IT WAS CLEAR THAT HE WAS THE LOVE OF HER LIFE, HER STRONG RIGHT ARM, AND BEST FRIEND. THEY WERE MARRIED QUIETLY ON JULY 22, 1994. … JEAN’S GENTLE MANNER BELIED A SHARP INTELLECT AND SENSE OF THE COMEDY IN EVERYDAY LIFE … AND SHE COULD BE OUTRAGEOUS ENOUGH TO MAKE GRANDCHILDREN EXCLAIM ‘GRANDMA, I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU SAID THAT!’”. JEAN PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 85 ON DECEMBER 4, 2012. PERCY DONALD MURDOCH WAS BORN ON JULY 20, 1908 IN COURTENAY, ND, THE SON OF GEORGE DONALD AND JESSIE NEILSON MURDOCH (MAIDEN NAME UNKNOWN). IN 1910, THE FAMILY HOMESTEADED IN THE PENDANT D’ORIELLE AREA OF SOUTHERN ALBERTA. IN 1920 PERCY MARRIED ANNA LAYNE SMITH IN WILSON SIDING. THE COUPLE THEN MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE. HE PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 84 ON MARCH 22, 1985. ANNA LAYNE MURDOCH (NEE SMITH) WAS BORN IN 1903 IN RAYMOND, AB TO HENRY SMITH AND EMMA LAYE SMITH (MAIDEN NAME UNKNOWN). ANNA WAS THE GRANDDAUGHTER OF THOMAS SASSON SMITH AND JONATHAN ELLIS LAYNE. A PHOTOGRAPH PUBLISHED DECEMBER 31, 1960 IN THE HERALD SHOWS ANNA WEARING A DRESS THAT WAS WORN IN 1890 BY MRS. WILLIAM HENDERSON. SHE WAS WEARING THE DRESS AS PART OF THE PEMMICAN CLUB’S 75TH ANNIVERSARY BALL. ANNA PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 91 ON MAY 18, 1994. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR COPIES OF THE ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD.

DONOR STATES PETTICOAT BELONGED TO HER GRANDMOTHER (CA 1874), WHO LIVED IN ONTARIO. GRANDMOTHER MCKAY GAVE THE PETTICOAT TO A MRS. MCDOUGALL WHO CAME TO LETHBRIDGE IN 1917. AFTER HER DEATH, THE PETTICOAT CAME TO DONOR. *UPDATE* IN 2018 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF BOXED TEXTILES AND ACCESSORIES, INCLUDING THIS PETTICOAT. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION HAS BEEN COMPILED USING THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARCHIVES AND INFORMATION FOUND ON THE GENEALOGY WEBSITE, WWW.FINDAGRAVE.COM. THE DONOR, FLORRIE ISABEL MARJERISON (NEE MACDOUGALL), WAS BORN ON JANUARY 14, 1899 IN HAWKSTON, ONTARIO TO PARENTS, WILLIAM MACDOUGALL AND FLORA MACDOUGALL (NEE MCKAY). HER SIBLINGS WERE JOHN "JACK" MACDOUGALL (1904-1967) AND ALICE MACDOUGALL (1902-1974). ACCORDING TO MARJERISON’S OBITUARY PUBLISHED IN THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, THE FAMILY CAME TO SOUTHERN ALBERTA IN 1917. SHE MARRIED EVERETT MARJERISON IN GRASSY LAKE IN 1923. THEIR CHILDREN WERE ROBERT AND AUSTIN (D. 1926). THE DONOR PASSED AWAY IN LETHBRIDGE ON DECEMBER 22, 1991 AT THE AGE OF 92 YEARS. ACCORDING TO THE INFORMATION PROVIDED AT THE TIME OF DONATION, THESE ARTIFACTS FIRST BELONGED TO MARJERISON'S GRANDMOTHER. SOURCES ON THE FIND A GRAVE WEBSITE STATE THAT THIS COULD HAVE BEEN HER MATERNAL GRANDMOTHER, FLORA MCKAY (NEE GALBRAITH) OR HER PATERNAL GRANDMOTHER, EUPHEMIA "EFFIE" MCKAY (NEE ROBERTSON). THE DONOR'S MOTHER, FLORA MACDOUGALL, WAS BORN ON MARCH 21, 1867 TO DONALD MCKAY (1827-1914) AND FLORA MCKAY (1839-1910) IN ONTARIO. THE DONOR'S FATHER, WILLIAM MACDOUGALL, WAS BORN IN ONTARIO ON FEBRUARY 2, 1970 TO ALEXANDER MCDOUGALL (1826-N.D.) AND EFFIE MACDOUGALL (1838-1916). WILLIAM'S MOTHER TOOK THE LAST NAME "MCKAY" AFTER HER SECOND MARRIAGE TO ANGUS MCKAY (1834-1916) IN 1887. WILLIAM'S OBITUARY STATES HE WAS A FARMER OF THE KIPP DISTRICT. WHEN HE FIRST ARRIVED IN ALBERTA FROM ONTARIO IN 1917, HE FARMED IN THE GRASSY LAKE DISTRICT UNTIL 1924. HE THEN MOVED TO CARDSTON, WHERE HE REMAINED UNTIL 1934 WHEN HE FINALLY TOOK UP LAND NEAR KIPP. THE ARTIFACTS CAME TO ALBERTA WITH THE DONOR'S MOTHER, FLORA MACDOUGALL WHEN THE FAMILY MOVED FROM ONTARIO. MRS. MACDOUGALL PASSED AWAY IN LETHBRIDGE DURING NOVEMBER 1955.
