McBain/McBean Family Tree

 

 

McBain/McBean Family Tree



I am related to the McBeans through marriage only, via my great great Grandfather, George Bannerman Milne.   Maggie McBean's father's name was Col. Archibald McBean of the British Army, according to notes in the Milne family bible. The notes in the family bible list the surname as McBain or McBean.

The information provided below is the result of my searching the Family Bible and other notes belonging to my father's side of the family. For cross-reference, please also check out the notes on the Milne family   I make no claim that the information provided below is totally accurate, however. The information in brown is unverified info pulled from rootsweb.com, while all the rest of the green text is stuff I myself have discovered and verified.

Notes on the year 1902
In 1902, many soldiers returned from The Boer War South Africa, which lasted from 1899-1902.

At this same time, Canadians had grown lax in applying the smallpox vaccine, as seen in this article in The Montreal Herald, Saturday, March 29, 1902:

The Smallpox Epidemic
During the past twelve months every Province in the Dominion, and almost every State in the Union, has had to fight the smallpox. The same condition of affairs has prevailed across the Atlantic, and smallpox has been more prevalent in England than for many years. All the Provincial Governments of Canada have been put to large expense, and almost every city in Canada has found its expenditure increased from the same cause. Half a century ago it was believed that vaccination had driven out the smallpox. At that time the statement was true, for the regulations in regard to vaccination were enforced. Every parent thought it his duty to have his child vaccinated when it was an infant, and the result was that the younger generations were entirely free from this disease. But in the course of time a set of cranks arose who began to agitate against this vaccination. They conjured up dreadful pictures of the diseases that might follow from the sanitary measure in the event of the vaccine matter not being quite pure. They wrote pamphlets and formed societies, and waged a vigorous warfare against the only safeguard we have against the most loathsome of all diseases and the most contagious. They did not make many converts, but the result of their teachings was to make people careless in regard to vaccination, and instead of being universal as it had been formerly, vaccination was, in many cases, neglected. How many people are there in Canada who have never been vaccinated. I fear there are a great many, hundreds of thousands, possibly a million or more. Every one of these persons is a source of danger to his neighbor and the immunity they have enjoyed from smallpox is only due to the fact that they live in a community where four persons out of every five are vaccinated. This surely ought to be an impressive lesson as to the necessity of attention to this precaution against the dread disease. The growing commerce and shipping business of Canada brings many seafaring men to its ports suffering from smallpox and this makes the utmost vigilance on the part of our authorities the more necessary.

So it is likely that most, if not all of the deaths noted in the genealogical list above are due to smallpox.
