William John Sanders
b- Oct  8,1865, in ON
d- Jan 12, 1936 at his home, South Hazelton, from heart problems
Came to BC in 1900, He was a bachelor.
Funeral was held in United Church in South Hazelton

He was a strong conservative all his life.
Had a married brother, Samuel Sanders, living in Regina SK

There is a William J. Sanders buried in Royal Oak Burial Park, Victoria

1911 in
Copper City, age 45, shown as a real estate agent
1912 he was shown as part owner of the South Hazelton Townsite,

William had his fingers in lots of places it seems.
Aug 1, 1923 he was appointed Post Master in South Hazelton

He was alive in 1926 in Hazelton.
Hazelton had a very troubled beginning with the arrival of the GTP.
Settlers wanted New Hazelton to be the Station location.
But GTP owners wanted to own the land where their stations were,
to make money on selling the lots.
Looks like Mr. Sanders was heavily involved in this.
He was Sergeant-at-Arms of the BC Legislature

Part Owner of Lot 851 which became South Hazelton
He was fiscal agent for the GTPR in 1912
Owned lot 852 in 1912 it was up for auction, for lack of paying taxes

I am an Amateur Historian, and Genealogist.
I use every source I can find, old newspapers, census, archives, etc.
I do a quick search for the names on these pages.
Therefore I do NOT profess to have 100% accurate information.
Use my info as a clue to do your own research.
I am not related to these folks, nor do I have hidden info.
I encourage everyone to visit their local Museum,
or buy a local history book for more info.
I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
If it works on just one person, per page, it is worth the time it takes me.
I do not charge for access to my pages,
I do not have any Ads on my pages.
Please "link" to my page from Facebook, etc.
Please do Not copy the pictures, or text on any page.
Please do Not ask to use pictures etc. on Facebook.
A "link" to my pages, does the same thing.
Just copy the hyper link, URL, shown in your browser above,
and paste that into facebook etc.,
or copy the links I have on the left side.
That is the honest and descent way to to do it!
