  • Notes 
    • Aka Jean. WIlliamina Jane Hunter is the sister who called herself "Jean" as an adult. We determined this by the border crossing cards giving her married name and birthdate. She married John Harold (Jack) Drury in England in 1920. She may have married Watson in California after 1945 (date of border crossing). From the time I knew her (1950's) she was a widow with the last name of Watson. She died in Los Angeles.

      1901 census in Dundee, St Andrew's district. Janet was restaurant waitress.

      1911 census: Lydenberg, Butter Hill, Carshalton, Surrey, England. Living with mother, sisters Kit and Ina. Occupation: chocolate coverer. (next door to Ethel Hunter Russell, sister)

      Immigration: 19 March 1921. Purpose of immigration: to work in chocolate factory with brother-in-law. Sister-in-law's name is given as Kathleen Hunter with an address in Vancouver. Ship name: Athenia via Halifax.

      Lived in Powell River, BC from 1922 to 1939 when Jack died at age 43. I have not yet determined how long Jean stayed in BC after Jack died. At some point she moved to California.
      1939 city directory: living at 1128 San Fernando Rd, Van Nuys, CA (Mission Hotel)
      1940 census: unable to locate in California. Probably returned to Canada.
      1944: entered US as permanent resident at Blaine, WA.
