Bruce Hamilton, c1940 Details
Since his grave marker corresponds with his birth registration, his correct legal name was Hamilton Bruce Hamilton. The eldest child of William Henry Hamilton and Margaret Emma Trennum, Bruce moved West between the 1901 Canada Census, when he was enumerated at Bobcaygeon, and the 1911 Canada Census, when he was enumerated as a Stationery Sales Clerk in Edmonton.

Following in his father’s footsteps, Bruce established what appears to have been a successful stationery business in Edmonton. He and his family travelled frequently. He and Thorne appear to have been close and kept in touch throughout their lives; Bruce was the informant on Thorne’s death registration in 1959.

Based on the census records, Bruce married Edith Marian Asselstine between 1911 and 1916, possibly in Edmonton. They had one child, Jack Bruce.
