Alexander McCauley was born 15 May 1860 to Eleanor Latimer and Alexander McCauley in Owen Sound, Ontario. Alexander came to Edmonton in 1895, following in the footsteps of his brothers Matthew and Samuel. Alexander was a carpenter by trade and worked for his brother, Samuel. He took over his brother’s construction/house moving business following Samuel’s death in 1903.
Alexander married Elizabeth (?) and they had four children – Emmons (1892- ), Edna (1895-1902), Ethel (1898- ) and George (1899- ).
Alexander McCauley died 15 May 1908 in Edmonton after a three month illness.
It is not known how Lorne Koznak acquired the records.
Scope and content
The series consists of the records of Alexander McCauley’s construction and moving business including booklets with the costs and amount of construction material used for various projects and clients. There are also cancelled cheques, most signed by Alex McCauley, but then signed by Alex’s wife, Elizabeth, in the last few months of the business as Alex was ill for a few months before his death in 1908.
Immediate source of acquisition
This series was donated to the City of Edmonton Archives by Lorne Koznak in 1991.
The material was arranged by the archivist by date.
