OWNED BY MRS. MURDOCH, PREVIOUSLY OWNED BY 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!’”.
