James Woodburn

  of 410

In researching my family here in British Columbia I have come across a "stray" I believe, named James Woodburn. He is recorde as having died in a dynamite explosion in a remote mining camp in B.C. called Green Lake in June 1910. His age is listed as "about 22" and his land of origin "England". Unfortunately the body was burned and his death was not even reported to the outside world until September and the coroner did no further investigation. I have e-mailed the local archive but so far no response. Anyone missing a James?
