Jenny Hamilton - Fort St. John B.C.

Jenny Hamilton - Fort St. John B.C.

Posted: 16 Jan 2011 3:17AM GMT
Classification: Obituary
Surnames: Laley, Myles, Hamilton
I am looking for someone to find an obituary for Jenny (Laley, Myles) Hamilton whom I believed to have passed away approximately in 1992. I am also looking to get a scanned copy of an article that she had published Aug. 27 1980 in the Alaskin Highway News in Fort St. John. This article decribed her journey from Ontario to B.C. with Archie Myles. There was also another article she wrote the following week, describing her second marriage to Patrick Hamilton.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Stella.. I've been in contact with the paper and if I understood them correctly, I would have to send someone into the paper to locate the article and to copy them.

Thanks again,
Doug

Hi, Provincial Archive in Victoria may hold the newspaper - in their collection. Perhaps someone at this list - could take a look. *Don't know if the archive will offer a search - with or without a fee.

Fort St. John Public Library - may hold papers/ perhaps clippings in their collection.

Hi Doug,

I got a copy of the story 27 Aug but could not find the follow up a week later. If you have any information on the headline etc, I will take another look. jumawa@shaw.ca

Thanks you so much Judy for you time and effort. As far at the followup article I didn't even know about it, I found out from Archie Myles nephew in Ontario. All I know is that the next week there was an article talking about Jennies life with her second husband, Patrick Hamilton.

If you could send me a copy of the first article, that would be fantastic.
