  • Notes 
    • Hello, Sandi, I just discovered all the work you have done on the Glendennings and other families. Thank you so much.
      I recently started to pursue genealogy seriously. I have spent most of my time so far on my mother's side of the family, but I will be driving to Toronto this weekend so I plan to visit St Andrew's Cemetery in Scarborough and started doing some research on the Glendennings, Hamiltons and Stobos, who all settled in that area when they first came to Canada.
      My link is to Isabella Glendinning (373), who married James Hamilton. Eventually I can send you some proper documentation to add to your site, but I thought you would be interested to know what happened to them since you don't mention anything more about them.
      Around 1882 they moved with their children to Saskatoon as part of a temperance colony and they were there during the Riel rebellion. I have two amazing letters written by their daughter Margaret, who was about 22 at the time, describing life there. (Unfortunately, Margaret died of typhoid fever in 1886.) Isabella's Husband returned to Ontario with the troops and died suddenly there, which is why he is buried at St Andrews Cemetery in Scarborough. Isabella was left with five boys to raise so, in 1891, she decided to move to Winnipeg, where there were better educational opportunities.
      One of her sons, Thomas Glendinning Hamilton (my Grandfather) became a well-known Winnipeg physician, president of the Manitoba Medical Association, MLA and Church elder, but he was best-known for his psychics research. If you google his full name, or T.G. Hamilton, you will find a wealth of material about him. His research collection is held at the archives of the University of Manitoba and has had 50, 000 hits since it went online two years ago! T.G. died in 1935 and my Father, James Drummond Hamilton, eventually edited the research, which was published under the title "Intention and Survival".
      T.G. married Lillian Forrester, a Winnipeg nurse whose family had also moved west from Ontario, and they had three children: Margaret, Glen and Jim. Actually, my Father had a twin brother who died at age three during the 1918 flu epidemic and a Lot of people say that part of the reason T.G. got involved in psychics was because he had a hard time dealing with Arthur's death.
      Isabella died in 1912 and there is an obit about her in the Winnipeg Tribune, 16 Oct. 1912, p. 8, which I haven't yet had a chance to read.
      That's the story in brief. Janice Hamilton, www.janicehamilton.ca
