Death of Hugh McMahon, 1915 – 52 Ancestors
I’m always watching for references to Newdale, Manitoba, and love newspapers, so I have found many while trolling old papers. Here is one from a British Columbia, Canada newspaper, typed out as it was printed.
Mrs. John Cameran received the sad intellegence on Wednesday evening of the death by accident of her brother, Hugh McMahon, which occurred that morning at Newdale, Manitoba.
The Creston Review, Creston, BC, Canada, Friday, 24 September, 1915, page 8.
Hugh McMahon was killed when his car was hit by a Grand Trunk Pacific passenger train. A long freight train standing by had obscured his view. See The Brandon Daily Sun article about his death, 23 September, 1915, page 2, Manitoba, Canada. Other family members mentioned were a wife (no name), son John and daughter Mrs. Herb Thomson. The article also mentions that his first wife had died in a train wreck.
