Notes for George Edwin “Ed” STOREY

His middle name is variously listed as “Edwin” and “Edmond”.

Manitoba Vital Statistics record confirms date, and lists place as Pembina,MB,Canada. He is still living at home with his parents and siblings in the 1901 census in Lisgar, MB.

The Jun 18, 1908 Western Canadian newspaper (for Manitou), mentioned that he was “of Winnipeg” at the time of their marriage, at Charles & Margaret’s home. Miss Lyla Storey was bridesmade, and Ed’s brother was the groomsman.

For the Henderson directory entries below - “mach” is short for “machinist”.

The 1910 Winnipeg Henderson Directory has “George Storey lab CNR h 408 Pritchard” (Avenue). The “h” means “house”, and “lab” means “laborer”. This address is within a few blocks of a large set of train tracks, that are currently CPR owned, I believe.

The 1911 Winnipeg Henderson Directory has “George E Storey, mach, CNR shops at 591 Mulvey (Ft R)” in Winnipeg. The 1910 directory says that “Ft R” means “Fort Rouge”.

The 1913 Winnipeg Henderson Directory has a “E Storey, mach, CNR”, but no address is given.

The 1914 Winnipeg Henderson Directory has a “Edw Storey”, mach, CNR, which may be him, living at 591 Mulvey in Winnipeg. If it is, then the next year Ellen Jane Lankin (nee Boyle) moved there, while working as a nurse, after her husband died (or possibly left). (The 1913 directory shows an Edwin Bigelow living there).

The family was at 256 16th Street, in Brandon, Manitoba, in the 1921 census. I can’t read his occupation, but I believe it was with a railroad?

Death date/place verified by BC Vital Statistics record, although it lists his middle name as Edmond.

His tombstone has ‘Storey’.

Worked as an engineer for CNR, and retired to Burnaby,BC.

His death certificate states that he moved to Burnaby in 1941, and that he lived at 1764 Edmonds Street. It also states that he retired as an engineer with CNR in 1938. He died of a sudden blocked coronary artery, caused by blood clot. His body was shipped back to Darlingford for burial on August 14.
