Hi Diane and Ian....

I am so happy to see you found the name you were looking for. It is great when all the information pulls together... books, internet and memory and people.

It was my grandmother who used to tell me the story about the Iroquois when it sank as she was just a girl of 10 years of age. She and her family knew many of the people who lost their lives that day. My grandmother's father had a contract to deliver mail on Salt Spring Island so they knew many people from that ship.

Diane....

If you could dig up that article from the "Times Colonist" newspaper, I would love it and I am sure Ian would too, as there was a lot of information there. I am also sure that the "Victoria Daily Times" and the "Colonist" newspaper of the day would have had great stories. I also know the city of Victoria Archives will hold the obituaries in their alphabetical and indexed collection. I will dig in my small library as I usually clip those articles and slip them into the appropriate book (between the pages). But it may be in my old library which the ex now owns....grrrr oh well.

Take care all...and have a great day. It is a beautiful Autumn day here... warm, leaves are golden and the sun shines bright in a sky of deep blue.

Kind regards... Rocky Sampson
