James Gullion and Flora Fraser

James Gullion was the son of James Gullion and Janet Scott, baptised on 8th April 1837. In 1851, he was with his parents at Newark, Eday. By this time it is believed his older brothers George and William had immigrated to Canada to work for Hudson's Bay Company. James followed and left Stromness, Orkney aboard "The Prince of Wales" about 5 July 1856. He entered service with HBC as a labourer, mainly at Edmonton, Northwest Territories (NWT), and later, as a middleman (1859) and sawyer (1861). He married Flora Fraser at Edmonton on 18th September 1867. Flora, born on 25th October 1845 in Saskatchewan, was the daughter of Colin Fraser, born Scotland, and Nancy Beaudry. James and Flora had ten known children:

  • Janet Gullion, b. 6th Mar 1869 who married William James Harcus.
  • Nancy Gullion, b. 29th May 1871 and d. 7th Apr 1875
