Census

I am not certain this is Uncle Jack because in 1925 census there was an elderly John Mccabe in Arvilla that was definitely not him.

Census

In 1916 John McCabe was a grain buyer living in a boarding house in Castor.

Census

The national census of Canada, Castor Alberta has an entry:

John McCabe, Grain Buyer, Single, Father from Ireland, Mother from Ontario, Lived in a Hotel in City of Castor, Employed by Grain Elevator, born in Canada, Catholic. Age of 39 is wrong, but that's not unusual.

Residence

According to his sister Annie Krause's obituary, Jack was in Castor Alberta at the time of her death in 1932.

Residence

From a story about Jack McCabe from Beth Naert:

I just happened to be here with Mom and she told me her story about Uncle Jack. He stopped by the farm in Arvilla late 1930-early 1940 to visit with her dad, Ben. He told her he was cutting ice in Whitefish MT. FYI...Huge icehouse in Whitefish that cut ice for "refrigerated" railroad cars. He mentioned his friend, Charlie Russell. Dad said Charlie Russell had a cabin on Lake McDonald but he died in 1929. Maybe they crossed somewhere up there. Also she said she read his name in a biography of Charlie Russell. Dad helped rewire the cabin in 1955 for the owner that had bought it from Charlie Russell.

Property

In 1910 Michael John (Jack), along with his brothers, bought land in Alberta and intended to move their farming operations to Canada. At the time of their father's death in 1913, Frank and Jack were in Castor area. According to the obituary, Frank and Jack attended the funeral and then returned to Canada.

From the Grand Forks Herald July 12, 1912: "Arvilla. John McCabe of Crary spend the Fourth here with relatives. He has resigned his position at Crary with the St Anthony and Dakota Elevator Co and expects to start for Castor Alberta soon."

Death

Shared note

Sis' papers say "Jack" never married. In The History of Catholicism in Larimore, author Tine McCabe Hunt says that she found 1884-1886 confirmation records of St Stephen's listed her father JB McCabe, and uncles Frank, John and Pat McCabe among those listed.

Everybody called him Jack, not Michael.

Supposedly he was a friend of the artist Jack Russell out west. He ended up in Washington. Grandpa Frank got to see him in the 1950's when he made his last trip out west to visit his siblings. He and Dolores took his old Nash for the trip after he retired from the post office at Rio Hondo.
