  • Notes 
    • 1901 census: May be the Andrew Waugh living with John and Mary Orr in Linlithgow - have not yet determined who this John Orr is.
      1911: news article about father’s death says he was living in Coal Creek, BC. in June 1911.
      1920: From the voters list December 1, 1920:
      Waugh, Andrew, 549 Prideaux street, miner NAN
      1952: At the time of his death, Andrew Waugh lived at 456 East Hastings, Vancouver, BC. He was a shipyard laborer. Unable to read the first name of the informant, but it may be Violet Waugh, 51 Nicol Street, Nanaimo, his niece.

      According to his niece, Chrissie Waugh, Andrew spent six months at a time in Canada, drinking and visiting the "Red Light" district of Nanaimo. The women in that area were very fond of Andrew. Then he would return to Scotland and work for six months. He would then return to Canada.

      Buried at Mountain View Cemetery, Vancouver.
