General note

History: Mary Ann (Bagsley) McVicar was born March 2, 1849 at Hawkesbury, Ontario to William and Ann Bagsley. She married Dougald McVicar(1843-1892) on December 26, 1871. They had eight children: Harrietta (1873-1944); William (1876-1953); Lillian Ann (1878-1951); Sarah Euphemia (1880-1897); Earnest Wesley (1882-1942); Gilman Palmer (1884-1935) and Hugh (1886-?). In 1879 she and her three eldest children traveled west to join her husband. At this time she named Grand Valley, Manitoba and was appointed its first postmistress. After her husband's death in 1892, Mrs. McVicar resided in Brandon until moving to Weslaco, Texas in 1924. She resided with her daughter Lillian in Texas for sixteen years. Mary Ann McVicar died on May 8, 1940 and is buried in Weslaco, Texas.
