Thanks so much for checking, anyway. Hope you enjoyed your visit to B.C.
We only know that he died in a shipwreck in Alaska during the period around 1900-1920, a shipwreck that was prominent enought to be in the newspapers of the time. He lived in Victoria, so thought it likely that the ship sailed out of Victoria. And we know that somewhere in Alaska, there is a memorial--a cairn or something--to the shipwreck. We were guessing it might be the Sophia, but I guess not. If anyone has any other guesses, we'd love to hear them.
