Biography

J. Wilson Lloyd was born in Springfield, Massachuestts in 1866, the son of James Lloyd and Agnes McAdam. He was most commonly known as "Wilson". His birth date was recorded on the 1900 census, referenced below. When still an infant, Wilson was moved with the family back from Massachusetts to their original homestead in St. Lin, Canada East (adjacent to New Glasgow). He was recorded there on the 1871 census.[1]

By 1881, the family had moved to Bolton township in Brome County.[2] That census indicated that Wilson was following his father's career as a blacksmith. His father passed away, however, in 1889, and Wilson and his mother were witnesses on the death certificate.[3]

Wilson's sister Susan had already made her home in Rindge, New Hampshire, since about 1886, and based on the following clipping, it seems that Wilson had also been living in Rindge since about 1886, employed by the Union Box and Lumber Company. After their father's death in 1889, their mother also moved to Rindge. It is not clear when Wilson's other siblings moved to Rindge, but we know that William and Jeannie also ended up there before 1891 (none of them were on the Quebec 1891 census).

On 23 March 1892, in Rindge, Wilson married Mina E. Jones, a teacher, also a resident of Rindge and daughter of Samuel Jones and Annette Davis.[4][5]

As the above clipping describes, after about 20 months of marriage, Wilson and Mina decided (Dec. 1893) to relocate to Knowlton, Quebec and operate a grocery store. Knowlton is only a few miles away from the Lloyd's former residence in East Bolton, so Wilson had probably maintained some contacts there. During their time in Knowton, the couple welcomed their first (and only) child:

  1. Harold H., b. July 1895; m. Helen Peterson, 4 Dec. 1924; d. 4 April 1949 (Mount Vernon, NY)[6]

In late 1899 or early 1900, Wilson and Mina left Knowlton for Massachusetts. In 1900, they were recorded (with Harold) on the census in Roxbury.[7] Their stay in the Boston area was very short, as they were identified as "of Leominster" even in 1901.[8] Leominster was the place they would call home for the rest of their lives. Mina and WIlson were recorded there with their son on both the 1910[9] and 1920 Censuses.[10]

Harold was married in 1924 and settled in New York state, leaving his parents living alone as shown by the 1930 census.[11]

Wilson passed away in 1939, in Leominster, Massachusetts.[12] He was survived by Mina for only about 9 months. Both were interred together in Rindge, New Hampshire.[13][14] Wilson and Mina had two granddaughters, Carol and Virginia.
