Looking for information on Alexander Leslie Fortune and wife Bathia M. Fortune. Found in the 1881/91/1901/11 census in sub district Yale & Cariboo. Buried in Lansdowne Cemetery Okanagan. Are there any articles/obits etc on this couple? Also wish to learn Bathia's maiden name.

I have found an article on her family - it is mainly about her brother but certainly gives a fairly good family history

That was an interesting article. I am now trying to determine if Alex & Bathia Ross Fortune had any descendants.

Hi Barb, I managed to get down to the Library today -It was late - I managed a quick look at the death registration - not enough time but managed to see that the Informant was George HEGGIE.Nuhome BC????
Searching the Provincial Archive Vital Events Index - for the HEGGIE surname finds 31 listings. Perhaps some family connected?Especially interesting
Jeannie Ross HEGGIE - 77 - 1950. Burnaby.
Jeannie Ross HEGGIE - 55 -1962 -Vancouver
Duncan Ross HEGGIE - 59 - 1974 -Vancouver
Cheers,Stella

I don't know if you found out all you wanted to know about Alexander Leslie Fortune, but if you didn't, here is a little bit. His father was Dr. Robert Fortune and his mother was Isabella Leslie, of St. Anicet, Huntingdon Co. Quebec. Both parents were born in Scotland. Alexander and Bathia had no descendants. Alexander was named after his maternal grandfather, Alexander Leslie.
