  • Name: Hugh (m) McBETH
  • Sex: M
  • Name: Hugh (m) MacBETH
  • Birth: 8 APR 1859 in Kildonan, Red River Settlement, Rupert's Land, British North America
  • Reference Number: 9822
  • Note: Hugh was the fourth in order of birth in the family. He is indebted to the public school system of Manitoba for the educational opportunities which he enjoyed. His first occupation was fur trading and in 1874 he became identified with the Hudson's Bay Company, being then a youth of but fourteen years. He remained with that corporation for a period of nine years, leaving its employ in 1882, after which he worked for a forwarding company, engaged in forwarding government contract supplies in Saskatchewan. A year was spent in that connection, at the termination of which time he secured employment with the Gait Coal Company and his efficiency and fidelity are indicated in the fact that he continued with them for twenty-one years. He came to Lethbridge and entered the office of the Galt Coal Company in 1885, remaining continuously with that corporation until 1903. He gave up his position and turned his attention to the insurance and real estate business. He is now agent for the Hudson's Bay lands and for the lands of the Canadian Pacific Railroad and also handles some private property. He likewise conducts a general fire insurance business and both branches are proving profitable, owing to his capable management, his progressive methods and his indefatigable energy.
