Memorable Manitobans: Jacob Hebert Dulmadge (1848-1927)

Educator, newspaper agent, school trustee.

Born at Brighton, Ontario on 1 April 1848, the son of Peter C. Dulmadge (1824-1892) and Elizabeth Ann Wright (1817-1893), he married Nancy Elizabeth Gordon (1850-1904) before moving west to Manitoba in 1881. The couple had seven children: Florence Astatell O. Dulmadge (1872-1944, wife of Stanley C. Harris), Luella Mae Dulmadge (1873-1956, wife of Ravid Rogers), Lillian Dulmadge (1876-?), Arthur Bruce Dulmadge (1881-1924), Clara Gordon Dulmadge (1883-1887), Mabel Z. Dulmadge, and Heber Dulmadge (1894-?).

They settled at Winnipeg, where he was an early school teacher within the city and served as trustee (1897-1906, Ward 6) for the Winnipeg School Division before opting not to run again. During his time on the Board, he played a notable part in developing school facilities in the north area of the city. He briefly went into business before joining theManitoba Free Press where he was in charge of their Business Office Collection Department. Retiring around 1912, he bought property on Borebank Street prior to the development of the River Heights community. There he built a home at 97 Borebank Street where he was an avid gardener. He was a member of the McDougall Methodist Church and a pioneer member of the local Masonic Order.

He died at his Winnipeg home on 26 September 1927 and was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
