Grierson ~ Fifth Generation

    Issue of John Grierson Broadfoot and Margaret Docherty  
1.   Jane Grierson BROADFOOT
Born 1866 at Lancefield, Victoria, Australia (Vic reg 15572).
Jane died 20 Oct 1888. Death reg 1888 at Fitzroy,Victoria (Vic reg 13366).
"BROADFOOT.- On the 20th October, at the residence of her aunt, Mrs. J.R.Jones, 103 Kerr-street, Fitzroy, Jane Grierson, the eldest beloved daughter of the late John G. Broadfoot, aged 22 years and 8 months." (ref Trove, The Age Tues 23 Oct 1888)
Not married.
 
2.   James George BROADFOOT
Born 18 Jun 1869 at Goldie, Victoria, Australia (Vic reg 16480).
Marr 1895 in Victoria to Laura FALCK (Vic reg 1895/1070). Birth reg of Laura Maria Augu[sta] FALCK, 1872 at Beechworth, dau of Charles Ferdin[and] and Theresa (Chirong) (Vic reg 736).

James died 1 Aug 1938. Death reg of Jas Broadfoot 1938 at Albert Park, Vic, aged 68 (Vic reg 1938/6867).
"BROADFOOT.- On August 1, at his residence, No. 344 Montague-street, Albert Park, James, dearly beloved husband of Laura Broadfoot, loved father of Elsie (Mrs. Clarkson), Nellie (Mrs. Martin), Harold, Doreen (Mrs. Mills), brother of Elizabeth (Mrs. Howell), aged 68 years. Late of Beechworth and Myrtleford." (ref Trove, The Age, Wed 3 Aug 1938)

The mention of a sister Elizabeth (Mrs Howell) is not accurate. Elizabeth's ancestry has been traced; her parents Samuel Broadfoot and Elizabeth Currie, her grandparents George Broadfoot and Jane Wallace (who married 1823 in Sanquhar, Dumfriesshire, Scotland). It is possible that George Broadfoot was connected to James's grandfather, James Broadfoot, who was bap in 1805. This would make them distant cousins. Or it might have been the connection of the name in Beechworth. I have documented Elizabeth's tree in the FamilySearch tree.

"FORMER BEECHWORTH EDITOR. Mr. James Broadfoot, aged 68 years, who died on Monday at Albert Park, Melbourne, was born in Beechworth, where he resided for 47 years. For 33 years of that period he was connected with "The Ovens and Murray Advertiser." In Beechworth, Mr.Broadfoot was associated with various sporting, political, and social bodies, and was for a time secretary of the Australian Labor Party. He was well-known and respected throughout the district. While editor of "The Ovens and Murray Advertiser"' he was a diligent worker for the progress of the town and district. He married in Beechworth Miss Laura Falck, members of whose family were also widely known and respected, and were amongst the pioneers of this town. Mr. Broadfoot is survived by his widow and by his son Harold, and daughters — Elsie (Mrs. Clarkson,North Fitzroy), Nellie (Mrs. Martin, Brighton), and Doreen (Mrs. Walter Mills, Myrtleford). The interment was in Springvale cemetery on Wednesday." (ref Trove, Albury Banner and Wodonga Express, Fri 5th Aug 1938)

Laura's death, after Aug 1938, not found.

"BIRTHS - GRIERSON - On the 26th inst, at Waterloo-place, Richmond, the wife of John Grierson of a son." (Ref 28 Jul 1875)
Known as John (4) Grierson.

"CHURCH OF ENGLAND SUNDAY SCHOOL ASSOCIATION. The annual meeting of the Church of England Sunday School Association, for the distribution of prizes and certificates to successful Sunday school children, was held last night in the Temperance Hall. The Bishop of Melbourne presided, and there was a good attendance of ladies and gentlemen. Mr. E.D. Puckle, hon. secretary of the association, read the prize, honour, and pass lists of the senior and junior divisions of the children of the Sunday schools as follows:-
[inter alia] JUNIOR DIVISION. 6. J.B. Grierson, St Stephen's, Richmond." (The Argus 17 May 1887)

Marr 2 Jul 1907 at St Stephens C of E, Richmond, Victoria (Vic reg 5427R) to Margaret Elizabeth SAMPSON. See SAMPSON tree.
Occupation Printer & Compositor at Sands & McDougalls.
The Sands and McDougalls Directory shows them living at 2 Elm Grove Richmond in 1909, though there is no record of them before then (but the directory sometimes lags). From JS Grierson's memoirs we know that they moved in March 1928 to 9 Fenwick Street Kew (for which they had purchased the block and started building in 1927).

He held a commission in the AMF (Australian Military Forces, otherwise known as the Militia or Reserves).
In addition (dates approximate), he had the following positions:
June 1896 - June 1906, Submarine Mining Company of the Victorian (later Australian) Engineers, highest rank Corporal;
June 1906 - end 1912, Australian Corps of Signallers, highest rank Company Sergeant Major;
1913 - 1923, 52nd Battalion Australian Infantry (which was for a period The Victorian Scottish Regiment), highest rank Lieutenant, commissioned 16 Aug 1915.
He volunteered for the AIF, but was not selected, due (it is surmised) to being in a proscribed industry. He was awarded the Colonial Auxiliary Forces Long Service Medal.

On Sat 5 Aug 1905 there was an advertisement printed in The Argus, Melbourne (page 11, 2nd column from left, Missing Friends, Messages), as follows:
"GEORGE GRIERSON, mother's name Mary Burgess, please communicate with Miss Strawbridge, Pratt and Keith, Aberdeen, Scotland". George was presumably written to because of his earlier return to Scotland, but he was long dead, and this advertisement was noticed by his great-nephew, John (4) Grierson and his wife Margaret. Further descendants do not know the reason for this advertisement but there is a story that some were paid out not to make a claim on some property, which may or may not have been to do with a brewery.

John died 12 Jan 1957 at Fitzroy, Victoria (Vic reg 1078). Ref his death certificate.
Margaret died 18 May (her birthday) 1968 at Kew. Death reg of Margaret Elizabeth Grierson 1968 at Kew, Victoria, dau of Gideon Sampson & Selina Gale, age 92 (ref Vic reg 10820).
Both are buried at Boroondara Cem, Kew (Special A Row A 0030).

Obituary of Thomas Sadler from The New Castle News, New Castle, Pennsylvania, dated Sat 28th Feb 1925 (From Ancestry Public Tree).
"THOMAS SADLER DIED SUDDENLY THIS MORNING - ASSISTANT MANAGER SHENANGO TIN MILL.
Following an illness which lasted but a few days, Thomas Sadler, Age 60, of 809 Winter Avenue, one of New Castle's most widely known industrial men, passed away at the Shenango Valley Hospital at 1.00 o'clock a.m. today. Mr. Sadler's illness was tragically short. On Feb. 25 he was at his work in the Shenango Tin Mill where he was employed as assistant manager. On Thursday he was stricken and rushed to the hospital. In an effort to spare his life an operation was performed but from which he did not recover.
Mr. Sadler was one of the pioneers of the tin plate industry in the United States. He was born in England, April 12, 1865, the son of Henry and Charlotte Baldwin Sadler. As a young man of 21 years of age he went to Australia, staying in that country for four years. He came to the United States and from the beginning started making tin. He worked in Demmier, Pa. and Irondale, Ohio a short time before coming to New Castle. He located here in 1893 and was the first roller employed in the Greer Tin Mill, now the New Castle Tin Works of the American Sheet and Tin Plate Company. From 1893 to 1905 he worked as a roller and in 1905 was advanced to the position of hot mill foreman. In 1912 his work merited another advance and he was made assistant manager of the New Castle plant. Again, in 1918 he was advanced this time to the position of assistant manager of the Shenango plant of the American Sheet and Tin Plate Company, which position he was holding at the time of his death.
Upon coming to New Castle he made himself felt in church circles and has always been prominently identified with church and Sunday school work. He was a member of the First Christian Church and the teacher of a large Bible class in that Sunday school. In fraternal life he was a member of the Benevolent Protective Order of the Elks Lodge 69, of New Castle. In civic affairs he was always found willing to assist any good cause and the judgement and his ability were utilized by this community in many ways. He was the kind of citizen who believed in his city and state, in his church and his vocation. New Castle can ill afford to lose such a man as him. Mr. Sadler is survived by his wife, Mrs. Alice Lewis Sadler and the following children, Alfred, Maurice, Clarence, Hubert and Thomas Sadler and two daughters, Mrs Marshall Whittaker of Elyna, Ohio and Miss Charlotte Sadler at home. Also, the following brothers and sister, Albert Sadler of England, Mrs. Anne Roberts of England, Rev. A.J.Sadler of Jersey City, New Jersey, Mrs. Jennie Smith and Mrs. Eliza Ford, the latter two of New Castle. Funeral services will be held Tuesday afternoon, March 3 at 2 o'clock from the First Christian Church. Interment will be in the Oak Park Cemetery."
