Dates of existence


George Edward Grogan (1857-1939) was born in England and came to Canada in 1875. He joined the Northwest Mounted Police in Ottawa and soon after made his way west to Alberta where he met his wife, Kathleen Tascher de la Pagene, originally from Montreal. The two were married in Edmonton on May 25, 1891. In addition to his work with the police, Grogan worked as a newspaper editor first in Alberta and then in Revelstoke, British Columbia, during the Klondike gold rush.

The Grogans had four children, two of whom died in infancy: George (1892-1893), Helen Aimee (b. 1893), Marion Alice (Feb-Aug 1899), and Kathleen Sara (1905-1946), who later married Francis Burgoyne Rattenbury in 1928. After the birth of their fourth child, the Grogans moved to Victoria where George Grogan was partner in a real estate firm. He was also the live-in manager of the Alkazar Apartments on Fairfield Road. Following his wife’s death in Victoria in 1937, George moved back to Calgary where he died in 1939.
